Broc’s face was twisted. His eyes were full of anger: The last time, I was in this Silent Night Wetland when I suffered such a great shame. I actually repeatedly missed my moves on an ant. Instead, I was severely damaged by the ant in the end, and he even left incurable scars on my face!
This ant actually appears at this place again. I must tear him into pieces!
Broc’s original plan was to wait for these people to get out of the jungle before killing them. However, Delia sensed him in advance, so he launched a distant attack. Unexpectedly, it was blocked by the shield in Delia’s hands. Then, his three enemies also hid behind the powerful magic trap.
Delia was very familiar with Broc. When she saw his expression, she was taken aback. Broc wrote to Empress Catherine and said that he was “assassinated” and was poisoned. She never thought it was actually Chen Rui’s doing! A Demon King actually made Broc suffer so much!
Actually, she didn’t know that when Chen Rui fought Broc, he was only a Higher Demon.
“Ant, don’t think of using that teleporting tool again!” Broc sneered, “I’ve already set my Incubus Territory here, so none of you can escape! Delia, I’ll give you 1 minute to consider, give me the Illusive Shield. Otherwise, I’ll kill all three of you even when I have to endure the artifact’s counterattack!”
Artifact? Counterattack? Illusive Shield? Chen Rui wondered in his heart and looked at Broc with a sneer, “Broc, why don’t you come and grab it yourself? Are you afraid that I’ll use that poison again? Or are you are scared of the magic trap in front of me? Here’s a suggestion, try flying over.”
The power of Dragon Inscription wasn’t something that could be bypassed by flying, unless he could keep flying in the air without landing. There was an <Explosion> inscription in front of them. Once Broc really fell into the trap, even if he was a Demon Emperor, he would still suffer huge damage. It was just that except for the area of inscription, everywhere else was covered by the power of the Incubus Territory. Also, Broc had the scary long-range attack, so Chen Rui and others dared not act rashly.
Broc stomped his feet and the whole ground was shaking. However, such trembling started to disappear in front of Chen Rui. The black light in Broc’s eyes was shining brightly. The Dragon Inscription even started to tremble slightly, and there was a sign of being covered by the black. It seemed that Leviathan Royal Family’s strongest <The Eye of Incubus> was truly extraordinary.
Fortunately, Dragon Inscription wasn’t a copy made by Chen Rui, but from a genuine dragon. Even if it was Broc, it wasn’t easy to suppress it with brute force.
“Delia! I’m giving you one last chance! Considering that you’re my sister…” A hint of viciousness flashed past Broc’s eyes and his voice became more creepy, “Also for the sake of my woman and slave, I can spare you from dying.”
Delia suddenly trembled. Her face under the veil turned pale, and her hands holding the Illusive Shield shivered.
Chen Rui and Roman looked disbelief. Broc’s woman? Aren’t they siblings?
“It seems that your new and old love don’t know about it yet.” Broc smiled grimly, deliberately crushing Delia’s will, “Did you not tell them, who was your first man?”
Delia’s body shivered even more intensely. She spat out another mouthful of blood.
Chen Rui suddenly understood what Delia had said before.
Death might be a relief.
It has been more uncomfortable to live than to die in these 3 years. Unfortunately, under close surveillance and the <Soul Shackles>, I didn’t even have the freedom to die.
Every day, I’ll cut once across my face, waiting for the day of release.
No wonder in Delia’s eyes, there was boundless hatred.
She hated Broc and also herself, as well as fate. Roman roared angrily. His nails had dipped into his flesh. His blood was dripping.
“You’re worse than a beast!” Chen Rui’s anger was raised to the extreme, “Broc, you’re not worth living in this world!”
“Naive guys! What do you know? She should be blamed for being recognized by the Magic Shield but not me! It’s an artifact of the Leviathan Royal Family. How can a weak woman with a heart for outsiders control it?!” Broc laughed madly, “Now that I have the Magic Shield, the artifact, Illusive Demon Shield is complete! If I have a child with her, this child will inherit the artifact and Leviathan Royal Family in the future!”
It turned out that when Illusive Shield and Magic Shield combined together, it would be one of the seven artifacts, Illusive Magic Shield!
The thing that Delia was looking for in the Paglio’s treasure was Illusive Shield. It could isolate the <Soul Shackles> effect, getting rid of Broc’s control and this terrifying nightmare.
Delia had stopped trembling. Her frightened and angry eyes had returned to desolation and silence. She wasn’t shaken by Broc’s words anymore, “I’ll use <The Eye of Incubus> to help you guys to ease the constraints of the Incubus Territory! Both of you leave quickly! I don’t want to repeat what I said. There’s still 30 seconds. If you don’t leave, I’ll die right before your eyes!”
Chen Rui shouted, “No! Delia! You and Roman go first!”
The inscription would soon be suppressed. The difference in strengths between the two parties were too great. If Delia didn’t use the Illusive Shield, Broc didn’t even need to catch up. The power from long-ranged attack alone was enough to kill everyone.
How can Chen Rui let her face a dangerous person like Broc here? Broc was simply a cold-blooded person who disowned with his relatives, otherwise she will not cast <Soul Shackles> to her sister. Once Magic Shield is in hand, even if Delia is not dead, it is definitely Life is better than death.
Delia looked at Chen Rui calmly, “Do you want to watch me die worthlessly?”
“Die worthlessly? Don’t you understand yet? Delia.” Chen Rui said, “For the past 3 years, this guy is like a soulless walking dead. If you leave again this time, his life will lose its value forever.”
Roman, who had been extremely angry, also calmed down and solemnly said to Chen Rui, “Delia is a good woman. Help me take good care of her.”
Chen Rui saw the determination and spirit in Roman’s eyes, but he dismissed it scornfully, “You two are a pair of idiots! Roman, I can take over your money, equipment and any other mess, but I’ll never take over your woman! Delia, use <The Eye of Incubus> and take Dodo and Roman to the second inscription after the turn to wait for me! You should know how to pass along the way since the properties of inscription hasn’t changed at this moment!”
“No!” Delia and Roman said in unison, “Leave, you guys!”
“Stop delaying time! Don’t forget that I’m the leader! Trust me!” Chen Rui shouted, “If all of you want to suicide and drag me to death, then stay here!”
Delia and Roman looked at each other, and they finally stopped insisting. With the help of <The Eye of Incubus>, they took the difficult steps and walked toward the location that Chen Rui mentioned along with Dodo.
When Broc saw that Delia didn’t stay, but left with the Illusive Shield, he hated Chen Rui even more for messing with his plan. Then, Broc shouted and punched Chen Rui.
However, Chen Rui’s position and posture were very strange. The ground made a muffled sound. Then, this punch was actually dispersed in advance by the explosive of the “trap” on the ground and failed to hurt him. It was the use of the inscription. During that strike, Delia and Roman have fled far away.
Broc’s eyes were full of black light. The ground continued to tremble. When Chen Rui had just activated Stridebug on his feet, he felt that the inscription was exploding quickly. It was actually forcefully detonated by the Incubus Territory. He immediately took out the silver box from the backpack without hesitation and opened it immediately after aiming it to the front.
Broc forcibly detonated the inscription with the Incubus Territory, so he consumed a lot of energy. As he was about to kill Chen Rui and chase Delia, he suddenly felt a terrifying and strange breath. He couldn’t help, but was chilled. Instantly, he felt that his lifeforce was reducing uncontrollably. Not only that, the strength in his body was weakened by a large amount. His body that was leaped in the air fell to the ground harshly.
This time, Chen Rui only felt that his life was quickly devoured when he opened the silver box. There wasn’t any mysterious understanding like the first time. Originally, he wanted to use the silver box to fight against Broc with his life. Since he shared his life with Paglio, thousands of years of life should be able to kill this most horrifying enemy.
However, when Chen Rui opened the silver box for the second time, he felt that there was a kind of frustration on his chest. Even his consciousness had a faint sign of collapse. It seemed that the silver box couldn’t be opened simply. When he thought about it, he quickly closed the box. The surrounding Incubus Territory had been greatly weakened. After suppressing the uncomfortable feeling in his heart, Chen Rui quickly turned around and fled.
Broc finally woke up from that scary feeling. He felt that his strength was suppressed to a relatively low level. Even his mobility was greatly reduced. Although he was taken aback, he stood up without hesitation and chased.
Although Broc’s strength had been weakened a lot, it wasn’t something Chen Rui could handle now. The long-ranged attack hit Chen Rui’s back directly, making a strange sound. It turned out that blow hit directly on the silver box in the backpack. The silver box was very marvellous. The Demon Emperor’s strength couldn’t penetrate it. Even the backpack wasn’t damaged. However, the aftershock on other areas made Chen Rui spurt blood. There was also unbearable pain from the unrecovered wound at his chest.
Chen Rui responded quickly. He clenched his teeth and leaped forward with the force of this blow. After slamming to the ground, he took a turn and there was a <Lightning> inscription in front. Chen Rui put his body in a strange posture and passed carefully. Not far ahead was where the second inscription was, which was where Delia, Roman and Dodo waited.
Broc knew that there was a trap in front of him, but he couldn’t bother anymore. He took out a big buckler from the back of his cloak and rushed straight forward. At the moment of collision, the inscription erupted a strong thunder. The sound of electric current echoed across dozens of meters in radius. However, these thunderbolts were miraculously stopped by that giant buckler.
Delia’s right eye glowed a faint light. Then, Broc felt that the big buckler in his hand trembled and was loosen from his hand. He shouted “Bitch!” and the black light in both his eyes shone, forcibly suppressing the big buckler’s movement.
Taking advantage of that opportunity, Chen Rui did his best to resist the stasis of the black territory under his feet and rushed toward the place where Delia was. Broc had rushed past the <Lightning> inscription, but a large number of huge vines suddenly appeared under his feet, entangling around him.
A red long sword appeared in Broc’s hand. Within flashes of light, the vines were broken into hundreds of pieces. With that delay, Chen Rui was almost in front of Delia and Roman. Broc was furious. He slashed with his sword and a sharp force cut through the air. Delia raised the Illusive Shield to defend. With sparks everywhere, she blocked that deadly blow.
Although Broc’s power had been weakened a lot, Delia was seriously injured, so she still received a major shock. Her veil had another area of redness. Broc himself was also shocked by the Illusive Shield’s unique counterattack.
At that point, Chen Rui had already held the arms of Delia and Roman and pounced toward the inscription behind him. Their bodies were suddenly twisted. Broc knew something wasn’t right. So, he exploded the Incubus’ power in both his eyes and the black territory covered the surroundings.
His Incubus Territory could indeed stop teleporting items like “Dark Will”. However, it couldn’t suppress the inscription power carved by a powerful Demon Overlord dragon, especially when his strength was suppressed to the minimal. The inscription was <Random Teleportation>.
Broc felt that the space distortion was getting stronger. It wasn’t restrained by Incubus Territory. He was anxious and swung his sword again, but it missed. The three figures had disappeared into thin air.
Broc took a chance and rushed into the inscription. After a while of teleportation, his body appeared in a scorched forest. He was actually teleported far away from the jungle. There were no one around him.
Chen Rui’s team and Broc were transported randomly in 2 batches. Obviously, the teleported location wouldn’t be the same. The Dragon Inscription’s <Teleportation> ability was quite powerful. Chen Rui and others must be in another distant place at that moment.
Broc failed. He watched the Illusive Shield that he almost got into his hand to be lost again. The anger in his heart was indescribable. He swung the sword in his hand fiercely. The ground trembled and the dead woods were sent flying. The entire forest echoed with an unwilling angry roar.
It might be that <Doom> had passed 24 hours, so the luck of Chen Rui and others this time wasn’t bad enough to appear near Broc. Instead, they arrived at another distant area.
Initially, Broc’s <The Eye of Incubus> had a lock on ability. However, Delia also had <The Eye of Incubus>. Although it wasn’t powerful, it wasn’t a problem to solve the lock on.
The trio took Dodo cautiously all the way. According to the interference level on the magic map, they gradually moved away from the treasure area. After the magic map recovered its function, Chen Rui found the 2 wyvern waiting at the agreed place. These two wyverns were both Demon King-level that were left here after discussing with the Wyvern King for the ease of meeting at Mountain Xilang.
Chen Rui asked Delia and Roman, “What are your plans?”
Now, when she reached a safe place, Delia’s mood was down instead. She kept silent.
Chen Rui knew that Delia had suffered too many misfortunes. He fully understood her mood. So, he said, “You definitely can’t return to the Dark Shadow Empire. Come to the Dark Moon with me, Athena is also there.”
Delia shook her head slightly, and she was still silent.
“Let’s go.” Roman spoke while holding Delia’s hand, “Let’s go together.”
Delia tried to break free, but her hand was gripped tightly by Roman. Her body was trembling slightly for a moment. She was just shaking her head.
Chen Rui saw it in his eyes and smiled slightly, “I know you’re worried that you’ll be a burden for Athena and I. Rest assured, Broc can’t find you. Even if he finds you, I can deal with it. Believe me! You have to know that I’m the team leader.”
As long as the <Lock of Light and Dark> was dispelled, Paglio could not only restore his freedom, but also recover his Demon Emperor strength, which would be Chen Rui’s greatest support.
“Our leader is right.” Roman held Delia’s hand tightly, “Let all the sadness and pain in the past dissipate with the wind. We can start again from this point. This time, I’ll never leave you, even if I die.”
“In our human world, it’ll snow in winter and it’ll be very cold. Yet, after the snow melts, it’ll be a warm spring. As long as you can look forward, spring is right ahead. Let’s go. The 3 of us will return to the Dark Moon together.” Chen Rui saw Dodo desperately raising his hand to indicate his existence, then he added with a smile, “The 4 of us.”
Delia’s eyes instantly turned red, and her tears soaked the veil. She didn’t persist anymore, and she nodded.
No matter how deep the wound was, it would still slowly heal with the accompaniment of lover and friends.
