When Sabrina thought of that, she secretly mustered her strength. Chen Rui’s [Aura Blade] was about to run out of time. Besides, he wanted to end the battle quickly. Therefore, he started to attack quickly and forced Sabrina into a corner. The wounds on her body also constantly increased.
Sabrina couldn’t evade. Thinking to make it a lose-lose situation, she actually didn’t avoid and pierced toward his heart with the ice blade on her hand. A cold light flashed past Chen Rui’s eyes. The [Aura Balde] on his hands continued to slice toward her neck.
If that hit, it would definitely behead her.
Surely, that attack struck Sabrina’s neck without any suspense. Yet, Chen Rui frowned. Then, he saw Sabrina’s body turned into black smoke, causing him to miss. In contrast, the ice blade stabbed firmly into Chen Rui’s chest. Fortunately, the leather armor had high defense. The ice blade could barely penetrate. However, a dangerous omen gave Chen Rui no time to take care of the wound on his chest. He tapped his foot and immediately withdrew.
The black smoke quickly changed back into Sabrina’s body. Blood was flowing out from her right eye, but it was shining a creepy black light. Under the effect of some secret technique, her strength suddenly increased to the maximum. She looked like she was in her peak without any injuries. After a loud scream, a dark blue light beam with a diameter of one meter was shot from her right hand and directly hit Chen Rui who was retreating.
That blow contained a great deal of destruction power. It exhausted all her remaining strength. If she couldn’t destroy her opponent, then she could only sit still and be killed. However, with the strength at her peak state, even if her opponent was wearing legendary grade armor, Sabrina had absolute confidence to completely destroy his body and soul within the armor with this blow.
Unfortunately, Sabrina didn’t know that her enemy had more than legendary grade armor in his hands.
Sabrina’s strongest blow hit Chen Rui directly. To be precise, she hit the layer of blue shield outside Chen Rui’s body. Although the blue shield collapsed instantly, it bought some valuable time for Chen Rui. Another item had appeared in his hand.
The light beam hit on that thing. Although he was pushed back, he still managed to stabilize his body.
The light blue destruction beam gradually extinguished. Sabrina’s face was full of disbelief. Around her, the strange star territory was still shining brightly.
Sabrina, who was exhausted, felt like all her blood was drawn. She fell slowly to the ground, but her eyes were still staring at the object in the man’s hand at her opposite.
It was a shield, dark gold in color with a simple and elegant pattern. As an important member of the Leviathan Royal Family, Sabrina obviously knew about the shield: The greatest artifact of the Leviathan Royal Family – Illusive Demon Shield! To be precise, it was just the Demon Shield!
What did this man do to make the Demon Shield disappear? The seven artifacts can’t be put into any storage equipment. What did he do exactly? Besides, from the faint glow on the Demon Shield, this person seems to be able to truly manifest the artifact’s power. Otherwise, it’s impossible to directly defend the strongest blow equivalent to my peak status – [Ghastly Beam]!
Isn’t Broc’s sister, Delia the only one acknowledged by the Demon Shield? Why is this Asmodeus Royal Family able to…
Also, that terrifying mask that devoured my power of territory…
Most importantly, shouldn’t the Demon Shield be with Master “Arthur”? Since Fatilu is fake, then could the news of the master being killed be…
The man approached slowly. At the brink of life and death, Sabrina’s mind seemed to be awakened at once. Many of the previous incidents were connected by a key discovery. The accident at the Mystic Valley… Fatilu’s assassination… Izola’s anger… the timing when this man appeared… his equipment and the Illusive Demon Shield…
Sabrina’s heart was getting colder and colder. With her wisdom, she had already figured it out vaguely. From the beginning, she had fallen into a scary trap. Not only her but the entire Crystal Valley was in the trap! Ridiculously, Manu had always thought he was slyful, but he was actually tricked by this guy. In fact, not just Manu but even Jacob, Izola and herself…
“I never thought it would be you…” Sabrina’s tense body relaxed as if she had completely given up any resistance. In fact, she had no strength to resist anymore.
Chen Rui didn’t answer. He stopped in front of her body. The faint light on his hand seemed to be the book of death.
“Please don’t kill me!” Sabrina looked pleading. That merciful look made people feel pity for her, “I have wisdom and strength. With my value, I can become your most important assistance in the future!”
Feeling that her opponent’s rising power seemed to have paused, Sabrina tore her corset without hesitation, revealing her plump breasts. Her nipples were even stiff because of nervousness and anxiety. Then, she crawled toward the man, “Aren’t you interested in my beauty and body? I can be your woman! I’ll be your woman now… you can do whatever you want to me! I… I can also serve you with Fatilu!”
Her opponent seemed to hesitate for a moment. His hand gradually moved toward her breasts. Sabrina secretly took a sigh of relief. As long as he values me, I can still survive. Other than signing soul contracts, I’ll agree to any conditions regardless of my strength or body. Once my strength recovers…
At that moment, Sabrina’s pupils contracted suddenly. She saw that the hand that extended toward her chest suddenly held together and moved upward. The sharp qi brushed past that woman’s fair neck.
Fresh blood spurted out as the beautiful head slid off with a disbelief expression on her face.
She didn’t even have the time to ask. Why? I thought I’m very important?
Chen Rui knew what she would ask before she unwillingly died, so he calmly answered with a classic line in a movie,”Your death is very important to me.”
Sabrina was dead.
This voluptuous woman with a heart like a viper might had countless unrealized ambitions, but that was the reality of life. The end of life also meant the end of everything.
From a certain perspective, in the face of life, power or interests were just beautiful bubbles.
Chen Rui didn’t hesitate. He strode toward the unconscious Izola and killed her mercilessly.
At that moment, there was no beauty, but only an enemy. Being merciful toward an enemy was being cruel to oneself.
Both women held powerful strength and power in their hands. Their deaths were equivalent to cutting off Azgalor’s two arms. Manu’s strength wasn’t very clear, but Sabrina certainly had a share, together with Broc and even Isabella, from the Fallen Angel’s capital.
As for the crystal dragon, the puppet’s heart that controlled the crystal men was in his hand. Without the puppet’s heart, even if the crystal dragon wanted to continue making crystal puppets in the future, the quantity and quality would be greatly reduced. Besides, the crystal dragon was now in the recovery magic circle. In the meantime, as long as Empress Catherine’s men could arrive in time, the crystal dragon might not even have a “future”.
Due to the explosion and battle, Mystic Valley had been completely destroyed. The people inside had all escaped. Chen Rui didn’t leave immediately. Using the map of the Mystic Valley obtained when he was the commander, he went to several laboratories and used his storage to collect some information and items that could be taken away. They might not be of use now, but they might be useful in the future.
Those that couldn’t be taken away and the labs that hadn’t been completely destroyed were destroyed by him. Surely, some surviving researchers must still retain a lot of knowledge in their hearts. However, the Mystic Valley and experimental data were all destroyed now. Those sole projects or fragments couldn’t do much.
Chen Rui could kill Sabrina without hesitation, but he wasn’t that bloodthirsty to kill everyone. Even Master Toto’s death was decided after he thought again and again.
The destruction of Mystic Valley and the battle between the two madams from the Devouring Hall made the Crystal Valley in a mess. Only the Crystal Lair appeared to be relatively stable because the news couldn’t reach Jacob who was recovering in a deep slumber.
After a while, Chen Rui’s ghostly figure flashed out of that “stable” Crystal Lair. He had already obtained the most important things. Although there were many Dragon Inscriptions in the crystal dragon’s secret recovery room that even Master “Arthur” never learned, it wasn’t too hard for Chen Rui whose knowledge in inscriptions had surpassed the crystal dragon.
As for the Fountain of Resurrection or the ancient runes magic circle, Chen Rui had already carefully prepared an alternative. It was a magic circle made with a magic crystal as the core which could maintain the output from the crystals without interfering with the crystal dragon’s “sweet dream”.
A spherical magic item appeared in Chen Rui’s hand. This was what Christina gave him previously. When he went out of the valley with Sabrina’s company, Chen Rui had learned that there were many more “treasure hunters” in the vicinity. It must be arranged by Empress Catherine. It seemed that she was also well prepared.
There were Dragon Inscriptions around the Crystal Valley whose purpose was to cover up. Chen Rui walked to the central area of the with the weakest coverage, then he crushed the magic item and threw it on the ground. He then saw a golden light rising into the sky. It was dazzling like a firework. According to Christina, the signal would continuously explode and expand for about ten minutes. It could be seen from hundreds of kilometers.
However, at that moment, a sudden change occurred. A cloud suddenly appeared above the golden light. The “firework” only had time to explode once before it was wrapped by this cloud and disappeared instantly.
After engulfing the golden signal, this strange cloud quickly formed into a human figure. As if it was a illusion, the figure had already appeared in front of Chen Rui after he blinked.
It was a tall man with short lilac hair, golden full-body armor, and a scarlet cloak on his back that made him look mighty.
The man looked about thirty years old. He was about two meters tall; his face was as edgy as a blade; his brow bone was very obviou; his pale golden eyes revealed a dreadful glow like electricity.
[Analytical Eyes] showed: Race: Gluttony Royal Family. Comprehensive Strength Assessment: Unable to Judge.
Beelzebub Royal Family! Such strength! Could it be… Azgalor!
Why did Azgalor suddenly return to the Crystal Valley? Even Sabrina didn’t know about this news!
When he was facing a Demon Emperor, with Chen Rui’s current [Scorching Dragon Possession] state, there might still be a chance to escape. However, when he was facing a Demon Overlord, he might not have any chance. Now, he was in an unprecedented crisis.
Chen Rui’s facial expression changed greatly. It wasn’t only because of the appearance of Demon Overlord-level Azgalor, but also because of the two people in Azgalor’s hands – Fatilu and Freya!
Could Chen Rui think of an escape plan or Christina’s help would be on time?
