Chen Rui was taken aback to see the “God-Eating Mask” in the Super System became his face. What does it mean? Am I going to be a slave of the “God-Eating Mask”?
He touched his face subconsciously and was surprised to find that the mask on his face was gone!
Is the mask absorbed by the Super System? Will it return to my face? With that thought, the God-Eating Mask appeared on his face again.
Chen Rui had a sudden realization that he could finally control the visibility of the mask! This should be the result when <Deep Analysis> reaches 50%! If it is completely decoded, does it mean that I can completely control this artifact that can only be used by the Beelzebub Royal Family?
If it’s certain that if I can succeed, then the Demon Realm’s seven artifacts might all be… Chen Rui was excited. Without looking too far, the Fallen Angel Empire has the Sword of Fallen Angel. This artifact hasn’t acknowledged the Regent Obsidian yet. If…
Chen Rui withdrew his thoughts. It’s meaningless to think about that now. I’ll go through this most dangerous challenge first.
Yet, after counting, it was the 10th day today, so Chen Rui’s eyes fell onto the platform aside. On the platform, the red light on Athena had become very thin. It might disappear completely at any time.
Every time after Chen Rui finished training, he would check on her condition. He knew that Athena’s body was automatically absorbing the power of the Obsidian Heart. When the red light disappeared, it meant that the Obsidian Heart was fully absorbed, which was also the time Athena would wake up.
Chen Rui watched Athena motionlessly, waiting for the moment when the red light finally disappeared.
After some time, the red light finally fully absorbed into Athena’s body. Athena, who was sleeping like a baby, moved slightly and slowly opened her beautiful eyes.
The outline of a familiar face came into view. The outline became clearer gradually and that face was showing joy and excitement.
It was the man who was engraved in her soul.
Didn’t my soul disappear after burning my life?
Is this a hallucination?
“Athena!” A familiar voice sounded.
She pinched her fingers so hard and she felt pain. This isn’t a hallucination!
It’s truly him!
Athena recalled before she lost consciousness, she seemed to be… That’s right! I was fighting Glorfin at that time!
“Chen Rui.” Athena leaped off the stone platform at once. “Where is Glorfin? Are we all dead? Is this the hell that you mentioned?”
“This is the Earth Elemental’s Earth Palace. None of us die. The one who died was Glorfin.”
Chen Rui smiled slightly, “I know you have a lot of questions to ask. I will answer you one by one. Yet, before that, there’s something that we must settle first!”
“Settle what?” Athena looked at his smile and her heart flustered for no reason as if her heartbeat accelerated again.
“Transform for me now!”
“I want to see your look after transformation!” Chen Rui walked forward step by step while Athena stepped back not knowing what to do.
“Poom!” There was a stone pillar behind her and she couldn’t back up anymore.
Chen Rui’s urge made Athena more tensed and “whoosh!”, a fire ignited on her body. A pair of curved horns extended from her head; her purple hair had become red; her skin also became red, faintly revealing a mysterious light pattern; her red eyes were burning in flame, which was exactly the transformation she had when she faced against Glorfin.
This transformation was no longer the normal Great Demon combat form but a mutated Demon King-level transformation. The power she radiated was stronger than the level when she burnt her life when facing Glorfin. However, her lost expression on her face was like a weak girl without resistance.
Chen Rui’s aggressive eyes looked at each part of her body with impunity. When he saw her head down as she was afraid to look into his eyes, he shouted, “Athena, look into my eyes!”
Athena looked at Chen Rui’s eyes anxiously. When their eyes met, it was like they were stuck and could no longer be separated.
“Athena, you look very beautiful in this look now.” Chen Rui looked into her eyes and said, “Actually, no matter what you look like, you’ll always be my most beloved, Athena.”
Athena shuddered slightly. Her eyes glowed with flames. Instantly, her heart was filled with an unprecedented happiness. At that moment, all the previous doubts and inferiority were thrown away. The eyes filled with fire and tears looking at Chen Rui’s face got closer. She didn’t dodge it. Instead, she offered her lips while trembling.
The two figures were intertwined. A strong fiery sensation came from their touching lips which spread to their hearts. Athena didn’t turn into her humanoid form anymore. Instead, she reciprocated his passionate kiss as if she wanted to release all the emotions contained in her heart.
In fact, Athena’s figure was a bit taller after transformation which made Chen Rui had to tiptoe to maintain the kiss. Damn Arthur, can’t you grow taller?
If I can’t stand, then let’s just lie down. I can’t be using <Camouflage> to increase my height every time we kiss right?
This reason is very good.
Unknowingly, both of them entered a tent with comfortable cushions below. Although the earth elementals knew that Chen Rui was training, so they wouldn’t enter the Earth Palace, the floor was too cold and too uncomfortable to lay on. Speaking of which the storage was the most convenient. As they kissed passionately, Athena felt that Chen Rui’s hands started to move. His hands were only at her back when they were standing. They actually moved to her boobs when they laid down now. Wait! When did this guy remove my armor and bra?
“What are you doing?” She seemed to already know the answer when she asked.
“Well, you doubted my feelings for you before, so I’m going to punish you on behalf of love and justice…”
“Asshole, giving me such a bad excuse again!”
“You can’t do that…” Athena was about to resist when a hand had already climbed to the peak of the mountains on her chest. A numb feeling that she had never experienced immediately came to her brain, and she lost her remaining pitiful strength instantly.
Soon, another hand was added. The pair towering towers constantly changed their shape in the abominable caresses. The nipples at the top had already erected under the strong stimulation. Waves of increasingly strange feelings rushed toward Athena’s mind, but her lips were blocked tightly, so she could only occasionally whisper sofly. Her entire body was soft. It had lost all resistance. She could only let him do as he liked.
When a man’s hand reached into a hidden area under the abdomen, Athena, who was infatuated finally woke up. She clamped her legs and grabbed the hand while trembling.
Chen Rui felt the strength of her hand which didn’t seem like she was playing hard to get. The eagerness in his eyes faded a lot. He slowly withdrew his hands. His body who was pressing on her also turned to the side.
The atmosphere in the tent was awkward.
Chen Rui blamed himself for being too impatient. Athena wasn’t mentally ready for this step, so he couldn’t force her selfishly for his own desire.
“I’m sorry.” Both of their voices sounded again at the same time.
“I’m a bit out of control.” Chen Rui spoke first.
“No.” Athena blushed, “Listen to me first.”
“Actually, just now I…” Athena was having difficulty to speak, she mustered up her courage to say it, “I really want to give you my body now, but can we push it forward for half a year?”
“Half a year?”
“It’s like this. My family bloodline has a special mutation power which will happen by the age of 20. This mutation is very magical. It can make my initial strength promote to a higher level. If I’m at the peak, I can even break through the current realm. However, there is a limitation that is I cannot… cannot do that… before 20 years old.”
Chen Rui realized that it wasn’t because Athena wasn’t mentally prepared to accept the last step, but that there was such a special reason. Athena was afraid he was unhappy and said apologetically, “I’ll be 20 years old in 5 months. Can we wait until then? My current strength is only a little short of the later stage of Demon King…”
Chen Rui activated <Analytical Eyes>. Athena’s current strength is c, which is the middle stage of Demon King. According to her, promoting into the later stage of Demon King is only a step away. As long as she breaks through to later stage in half a year, then she can immediately leap into Great Demon King at the age of 20! This bloodline mutation is too powerful!
Thinking of that, Chen Rui stunned for a while. He experienced the multiple challenges at the brink of life and death, and he could finally reach the level of Demon King. After this, he still had to face the greatest challenge of Demon Overlord’s consciousness, then he might be promoted to Great Demon King. When Athena came out of the Dark Moon City, she was just early Higher Demon. Along the way, she consumed the devil fruit and black potion, then broke through at the last moment. Subsequently, she absorbed the Earth Power and Obsidian Heart. When she woke up, she was already a powerhouse close to the later stage of Demon King. As long as she reached the latter stage of Demon King, she would be “promoted” to the Great Demon King without any risk after 6 months!
Suddenly, Chen Rui had a feeling. Could it be that Athena is the actual protagonist that cross-overed? Why is her protagonist’s halo stronger than mine?
In Athena’s eyes, Chen Rui saw the thirst for power. He knew very well that this thirst wasn’t for herself but for him. It was just like the weapon named Guardian’s Sword that she wanted to protect him by his side always.
“Chen Rui, I’m sorry. I truly want to be your woman. Wait until my birthday…”
“You’re such a fool.” The desire in Chen Rui’s heart had completely faded away, leaving only a warm affection. He hugged Athena and put her head on his shoulder while gently brush her long red hair. He kissed her forehead and said, “You’re already my woman. No one can replace you.”
Athena smiled happily and turned back into a humanoid form. Suddenly, she added quietly, “What about Princess Royal?”
She has just “consolidated” her place yet she is starting to overthink again? So, this is woman?
“I was about to settle this with you! You’re such an overbearing little fool!” Chen Rui pretended to be annoyed and took the chance to pinch her hips, “There is nothing between me and Princess Royal!”
Athena was taken advantage of by him and blushed, “Then, what you said the last time…”
“You guessed it yourself before you even finished listening!” Chen Rui pinched her face lightly. “I’ll tell you that now, everything.”
