The two territories that combined were separated again. Even with [Analytical Eyes], Chen Rui didn’t know what exactly happened between Sabrina and the manticore when the cold air and poisonous gas collided. Yet, judging from the fact that both territories were greatly weakened, it should be a state where both sides were injured.
Both injured… or both killed in the next step?
Even if she didn’t die, the severely injured Sabrina shouldn’t be able to rival this group of crystal men and the mad beast, Lafar… this should be the best time to kill her.
It’s just that the timing isn’t within the plan. Perhaps… the plan can launch in advance?
When Chen Rui was weighing the interest in his heart, the blue mist around Sabrina had turned into countless sharp blades and flew toward the manticore.
Chen Rui once witnessed Broc’s turning mist into “army” at the Silent Night Wetland using [Mimicry] of water magic. The Leviathan Royal Family had natural talent with water magic. Sabrina’s [The Eye of Incubus] was far less talented than Broc, but her [Water Mastery] was far better. Before his eyes, it was a territory realized through water elements – the [Blue Charm Territory]!
In contrast, the green venomous territory of the manticore was much inferior in precision and changes. However, the powerful demonic beast had no fear in the face of countless sharp blades that threatened its life. Instead, it brought out its ferocity. After a roar, the green light instantly converged into its body. It opened its huge mouth immediately after and actually ejected several basin-sized energy projectiles.
That energy projectile was dark green in color. It contained a huge destructive power within. When it collided with the blue blade, a violent chain burst suddenly occurred. Those blades shattered one after another and the nearby crystal men’s bodies actually cracked when they were hit by the splattered “broken blades”. This showed the horrifying power.
This green energy projectile that could induce a chain burst became the nemesis of the blades. In an instant, after shattering countless blue blades, they flew toward Sabrina, exploding her body into pieces. Chen Rui exclaimed, “Madam!”
That “exclaim” was undoubtedly just an act because the energy projectiles only crushed the mimical ice sculpture. In [Analytical Eyes], Sabrina’s figures had appeared above the manticore. There were actually three figures. All of which exuded the same breath and attacked the manticore simultaneously.
Strangely, [Analytical Eyes] showed that Sabrina’s actual body was rapidly changing among the three figures. He couldn’t judge the real Sabrina for a while.
The manticore didn’t have that much time to consider. Its giant scorpion tail whipped and a figure suddenly shattered. At the moment of wrong judgment, the other two had already got close. The manticore’s instinctive reaction was extremely quickly. It endured a punch while striking with its claws and eliminated another one. The figure behind stomped heavily on the manticore’s back, and an obvious dent appeared.
The manticore endured the pain and pierced with its scorpion tail. The sharp and highly poisonous needle smashed the figure again.
All the three figures and the one exploded by the energy projectiles weren’t the actual body?! Chen Rui was shocked: Impossible! [Analytical Eyes] clearly shows…
When the manticore had just exhausted its strength, the fragmented ice crystals floating in the air instantly combined into a woman’s figure and appeared above the manticore’s head, seemingly holding a weapon in her hand.
In that short moment, there was a bright cold light. Then, blood splashed while the manticore’s giant head flew up and rolled far away on the ground. Almost at the same time, the body that lost its head crashed onto the ground.
Sabrina’s figure fell to the ground, and she was panting heavily. Her clothes were covered with corrosive, poisonous wounds. Fortunately, it had been frozen. Chen Rui looked at her right hand and saw her hand was frozen into an ice blade. It was this ice blade that cut off the manticore’s head that was also a Demon Emperor.
Chen Rui finally understood that the mystery of Sabrina’s territory was far more than the countless ice blades on the surface. The actual ultimate skill was her clone in the ice crystals. It was a mysterious talent similar to the [Mimicry] of water magic, allowing her to transfer her actual body among the clones and even combine into a human form with the ice crystals. Every clone was fake or as long as she wanted, every clone could be real too. In that territory, she was basically undead unless her territory was crushed by overwhelming force.
However, judging from Sabrina’s current state, the power consumed by that cloning must be huge. Should I take the chance when she’s exhausted now… Chen Rui’s mind began to turn active again.
The blue mist around Sabrina gradually converged into her body and the ice blade on her hand had disappeared. After drinking a few bottles of potions, she felt better. Then, she heard Chen Rui’s voice, “Madam Sabrina, are you okay?”
“I’m just a little worn out.” Sabrina was indeed injured. Seeing that the surroundings seemed to be settled, she said, “Master, can you help me to the side to rest?”
Chen Rui hurried over and helped her walk to the side of a stone pier. When he touched her body, a strange fragrance came and the touching of skin made his mind ripple. However, Chen Rui’s current thoughts weren’t about the ripple, but he was actually calculating quickly.
Sabrina took two steps and stopped, “Master, your heart seems to be beating really fast.”
Chen Rui was suddenly vigilant. Although Sabrina wasn’t as insightful as Christina or Manu, her means and strength couldn’t be underestimated. He still wasn’t sure how much combat power she had left. Moreover, he had to deal with not only Sabrina but also Izola and others, so it still wasn’t the good time to launch.
“I’m sorry, madam…” Chen Rui responded very quickly, pretending to look away from the deep cleavage between her plump breasts. He looked like he was found peeping at it.
He is still thinking of that at such timing?! Sabrina was annoyed in her heart, but seeing that there were still many people nearby, she couldn’t scold him. Therefore, she just shook her head, “Master, please help me take a seat and rest for a while.”
Chen Rui looked like he just “woke up from a dream”. He quickly helped her to sit down before a stone pier, but he was reluctant to let go of her hand. Until Sabrina gave him a dissatisfied glance, he finally let go reluctantly.
At that time, most of the demonic beasts that escaped from the Mystic Valley were killed by the guards and the crystal men. The rest were captured and sent back to the lab. The chaos finally stopped.
Soon, Master Toto ran toward them with a gloomy face and handed a list to Sabrina, “Madam, our loss this time is quite heavy. The cause of the failure of the magic circle holding the demonic beasts hasn’t yet been determined.”
Sabrina glanced at the list and frowned even harder, “No need to check. I know that woman’s means well. We probably can’t find anything.”
Chen Rui sneered secretly while looking angry on the surface, “This is too much! Does she want to destroy the Mystic Valley?! Madam, from what I see…”
Before he finished his words, a collapsing sound came from afar. The upper body of the giant “Gundam” suddenly broke and fell sideways, shattering into pieces after falling to the ground. It even crushed a lab.
“My giant puppet…” Master Toto almost fainted. That puppet was the work of all his blood and sweat. He even dreamt of becoming famous by this thing in the future, but he didn’t expect such an “accident” to happen. Although the blueprint was still in his mind, it would still take at least several months to repair.
Chen Rui also looked angry. Recently, he had been spending time with Master Toto and put a lot of effort into improving this “Gundam”. Yet, it was unexpectedly destroyed by others like this.
“That fucking bitch!” Chen Rui shouted angrily and clenched his fists, “Madam, we can’t endure anymore! Even if you don’t kill her, you must at least control her!”
Resentment also flashed past Sabrina’s eyes. She didn’t expect Izola to be even more ruthless than she used to be. Today, if “Arthur” didn’t send someone to inform her on time, most people in the Mystic Valley would have died because of the demonic beasts.
Does this woman have the confidence to deal with the blame when the man returns? Or perhaps that man’s bias has reached such a level?
When she thought of Azgalor, Sabrina calmed down again, “No. We don’t have any evidence on our hands now. If we rush to put the blame on her, it’ll only make her laugh. She would even use this against us. We have to bear with it now. What about after Sir Jacob finishes recovery, I need to trouble master to request him to warn Izola. I believe that woman won’t dare to do anything again.”
Chen Rui still looked unwilling, but he certainly wouldn’t involve Jacob. Besides, this matter mustn’t wait until Jacob wakes up!
However, Sabrina’s attitude was as he expected. As the saying went, “watch the fire burning across the river”. This was just a little spark of a prelude.
It was almost dusk when Chen Rui sent Sabrina back to the blue house in the Devouring Hall. Fatilu greeted him. After seeing her mother’s injuries and fatigue and asking for the reason, she was furious. She threatened to find Izola for revenge. Yet, she was stopped by Sabrina.
Chen Rui also helped to persuade a few words before he left the blue house. Upon returning to the Nightmare Valley, Chen Rui had a full meal, then he went to bed early to rest as the next day would be the most critical moment. He needed to take a good rest. However, tonight was destined to be someone’s sleepless night.
Early the next morning, Chen Rui went to Mystic Valley to arrange for the repair. At that time, Phil hurried to report that Madam Sabrina sent someone to report an urgent matter. She asked Chen Rui to hurry to the Devouring Hall.
Chen Rui nodded. To prevent any “accidents”, Chen Rui used the puppet’s heart to arrange the crystal men to guard several important places and strictly forbid anyone to approach before he left.
In the middle of the “basin” in front of the Devouring Hall’s houses, two groups of people were confronting each other.
One side was Sabrina and the other side was Izola. Behind Izola, there was a phsically strong man who was holding an exhausting-looking girl. That girl was Sabrina’s daughter, Fatilu.
Fatilu’s clothes on her upper body were stained red with blood. Besides, her bloody left arm was empty below her elbows. Her arm was cut off!
Chen Rui looked extremely shocked. However, he tried his best to control his nervousness and excitement, making him unprecedentedly calm because the main show of manis hunting cicadas was finally starting, and he was the director.
Turns out it was Izola that caused the chaos in the Mystic Valley. No wonder Chen Rui hesitated a lot.
