Seeing that Fatilu’s [Eye of Incubus] was immediately broken, Tapuli was secretly shocked. In the previous rounds, she tried earth and air magic and they had little effect on Chen Rui. So, she immediately changed her strategy and attacked physically.
Chen Rui waved his hand and Tapuli immediately felt that her speed had slowed: Earth magic, [Decelerate]! The effect of [Decelerate] is even stronger than I who have [Earth Mastery]!
Fatilu knew it was the brink of life and death, she couldn’t bother about the pain in her right eye. She activated her [Water Mastery] and dozens of sharp ice cones appeared around her that flew toward Chen Rui.
Chen Rui pointed to the ground. Then, Fatilu and Tapuli felt that their bodies had become several times heavier simultaneously. The ice cones were affected by the suddenly increased gravity and fell to the ground before they reached Chen Rui.
He can even cast [Gravity] without chanting! Proficient in both magic and physical! Is he still a mechanic master? Tapuli was even more surprised. She barely resisted the increased gravity and cast [Stone Skin] on Fatilu to strengthen her defense.
Fatilu waved her hands with difficulty, and there was a circle of transparent crystals around her which criss-crossed to form a barrier around her.
[Crystal Wall] – the strongest defensive water magic, also the highest tier magic that Fatilu’s [Water Mastery] could cast.
Fatilu wasn’t stupid. She understood that her [Eye of Incubus] was severely damaged, so she could only use defensive measures. Now, her only hope was that Tapuli could defeat or repel this terrifying enemy. At least Tapuli must be able to take her to escape.
Chen Rui ignored Tapuli and punched the crystal wall. [Crystal Wall] was indeed the strongest defensive water magic. Together with Leviathan Royal Family’s [Water Mastery], although Chen Rui’s strength was much higher, that blow could only shake the [Crystal Wall] a little. It only created a few cracks.
Chen Rui turned his palm into a blade and with a single blow, the outer layer of the [Crystal Wall] was divided into two. Although Fatilu continued to reinforce it with magic desperately, another concentrated two blows at most could collapse the [Crystal Wall].
At this moment, Chen Rui suddenly frowned and appeared in front of Kia instantly, parrying the [Magic Fist] sent by Tapuli at the last moment. It must be said that Tapuli’s strategy of attacking Kia to save Fetilu was quite effective, at least it temporarily saved Fatuli from danger.
Growing up, Fatilu had always been under the wings of her mother and had developed an arrogant, bossy attitude from an early age. Even if she was on a mission, she was also protected by Tapuli. Thus, she had never experienced such danger, and she almost cried. Seeing Chen Rui saved Kia again, the jealousy and hatred in her heart grew stronger. She shouted, “Tapuli, kill that lowly woman!”
“Ms. Fatilu, I’ll block him. Run away first!” Obviously, Tapuli wouldn’t really kill Kia. Otherwise, Chen Rui could attack Fatilu without scruples. Beside, she vaguely felt that she couldn’t rival this man. So, she made Fatilu flee first. If the situation was bad, she could still attack Kia to drag the opponent.
Certainly, Chen Rui wouldn’t let Tapuli’s attempt succeed. He sneered with his five fingers spread out. Suddenly, a white light dazzled and a huge white light ball whistled as it rushed toward Tapuli.
Tapri felt the horrifying destructive power of that light ball. Due to the lasting effect of [Decelerate], she didn’t dare to take it directly. Thus, she opened her mouth and a white mist rolled toward the light ball. [Aurora Shot] suddenly slowed down and became slower at a speed that was visible to the naked eye. Finally, it disappeared within the white gas – Beelzebub Royal Family’s bloodline talent: [Devour]!
However, the power of [Aurora Shot] was very strong. Tapri took a lot of effort to devour it before the [Aurora Shot] exploded, and she couldn’t transform it into her own power immediately. While her energy was exhausted and hadn’t recovered, Chen Rui’s figure appeared in front of her again instantly.
Tapuli was taken aback as she thought she had already prepared for her opponent’s attack, but she didn’t expect her opponent could teleport continuously. What was more was it was at that critical point. The blade-like palm struck toward her head. Hurriedly, Tapuli could only move her head slightly to the side. Yet, eventually her movement was too slow and her right arm was cut off from her shoulder.
That heavy blow made Tapuri scream in pain. Enduring the pain, she leapt and pulled a distance. When she was about to land, another huge white light ball appeared and gushed toward her again.
Tapuli was no longer able to use [Devour], so she had to try her best to parry it with one arm. Upon touching the light ball, her body immediately trembled and a large amount of blood spewed from the broken arm while her feet were being pushed back slowly.
While Tapuli tried her best to resist the light ball, she suddenly felt that the pressure had doubled. Subsequently, it increased several times continuously. It turned out that when she was parrying the light ball forcefully, Chen Rui sent three more in a row, which layered together. So, the power wasn’t as simple as fourfolds.
The terrifying pressure collapsed Tapuli’s defense in an instant. After the dazzling white light dissipated, a huge impact field appeared on the ground and caused a scary distortion that extended for dozens of meters. Tapuli fell to the ground. Her full-bodied armor had shattered, and her white bones could be seen among her wound, but she still hadn’t died.
With her unclear vision, she faintly saw the man’s approaching figure and the high raised hand. Tapuli was regretful as she still hadn’t used her ultimate move. Just now, this opponent took advantage when she protected Fatilu, suppressing her heavily. The most critical thing was that continuous [Teleportation] caught her off guard. As a result, before she could use her greatest strength, her opponent had seized the opportunity to launch a fatal blow. If she could fight again…
Chen Rui didn’t give Tapuli a chance to realize her ideal. With his hands moving from up to down, Tapuli was beheaded.
Battle wasn’t a performance or a turn-based game where you’d hit me once and I’ll hit you once; you’d use a deadly move, then I’ll use a deadly move.
The most effective method in the battle of life and death was to knock down the enemy.
Speaking of skills, Tapuli couldn’t compare either because Chen Rui still had a lot of skills that he hadn’t used.
Fatilu knew things were bad when Tapuli’s arm was cut off, so she removed her crystal wall and escaped. However, before she ran far, she felt a gust of wind blow past. Then, her neck was tightened as it was pinched by a clamp-like hand, and her moving figure came to an abrupt stop.
The terrifying power on that hand made her unable to produce any form of resistance. She felt like she was suffocating.
Despite Fatilu’s beautiful appearance, Chen Rui didn’t feel like he should appreciate beauty. Instead, he only felt disgust. When he was about to break her neck forcefully, Kia suddenly screamed, “No! Please!”
Chen Rui hesitated for a moment, withdrew the power on his hand and slowly put Fatilu down.
Fatilu felt that she just made a U-turn from death. Her forehead was filled with cold sweat. Although she hated Kia and Chen Rui a lot in her heart, she didn’t dare to reveal it. She was just thinking about how to get out, then find someone to avenge by crushing this couple into pieces.
Chen Rui certainly knew her thoughts. So, after a sneer, Fatilu felt a pain at the back of her neck and fell unconscious. After making Fatilu faint, he set his sight on the astonished Celine, the third lady of the Custer Family that lured two of them into the trap. After witnessing Chen Rui’s decisive means of killing, she couldn’t keep her usual calmness and thoughts. Although she kept telling herself to run away, her feet were trembling, and she couldn’t take a step.
“Ms. Celine, let’s return to the topic in the afternoon now…” Chen Rui walked slowly, as if every step was stomping on her heart, “Surrender or die. You can only choose one.”
Celine, who didn’t dared to breath, took a few huge gasps and finally calmed down forcefully. Although her opponent’s tone was calm, the horrifying figure that harvested the life of Demon King and Great Demon King powerhouses just now was stuck in her mind like a nightmare. It was extremely fearful, and that multiple-choice question sounded like it was going to take her life in her ears.
Celine didn’t hesitate any more. She clenched her fist and spurted blood from her mouth. Obviously, she forcibly cut off the original master-servant agreement she had and killed a servant. Then, she knelt down on one knee and a mysterious rune appeared in her hand which was a master-servant contract.
“Bold! As your master, I can guarantee that the Custer Family will grow unprecedentedly in your hands.” As Chen Rui spoke, he accepted the master-servant contract. A new notification suddenly appeared in his status bar: Found a new spiritual link. Activate the spiritual link system?
After confirming the activation, a small plan appeared, showing icons and names. He focused his consciousness on it, and there were even annotations.
1. Equal links (1/4): Name: Paglio. Race: Dragon. A-level link: life sharing, cause no harm to each other, function enhancement. Annotation: removable (Evolution Star level isn’t met currently).
Chen Rui felt sarcastic about that “function enhancement”. Why euphemizing it? Isn’t it just having a long-lasting sex drive like the dragon?
The annotation at the end caught Chen Rui’s attention. If my Star Evolution reaches a certain level, I can remove the symbiotic contract with Paglio?
2. Master-Servant link (7/12). Annotation: B-level link (removable; required 10,000 aura)
Dodo, slime (Mutated).
Tim, Great Demon (Mutated).
Royce, Great Demon.
Arux, Great Demon (Mutated).
Vasasha, Great Demon.
Celine, Great Demon (Mutated).
3. Puppet Link (1/2). Annotation: C-level link (Irremovable)
Snowden, Great Demon (Mutated).
It seemed that the master-servant contract could be removed now, but Chen Rui definitely wouldn’t do it at present.
The so-called spiritual link system was a schematic diagram and mental control of the contract. The 4 and 12 represented the maximum limit. Equal contract could be signed with four people; the master-servant contract was twelve. Other than the puppet of the God-Eating Mask was fixed at two pax, the remaining upper limit should be able to increase with Star Evolution.
A notification came again: Star Evolution is too low to enable link enhancement. This is a new term. Unfortunately, my Star Evolution is too low to use it. It’s probably a function that can benefit each other through spiritual links.
The spiritual contracts meant that Chen Rui could also make a “contract”. Certainly, only the equal contract had practical value. It was obviously impossible for him to offer a master-servant contract to others.
Chen Rui retreated from the Super System, picked up Fatilo, ordered Celine to dispose of the corpses and went to the big house to carry Old Gauss out. He said to Kia, “Let’s go, we must have a proper discussion after we go back.”
Wait… was he purposely building a Great Demon army?
