Mobilization, conversion and collection… Kanita worked extremely hard to gather 7 million.
More than a dozen space rings were loaded.
As “Charles” said, his time was very precious. After getting the money, he launched the secret treasure in front of Kanita to open a strange space door, and he hurriedly left Demon Realm.
Samuel did not leave, but volunteered to stay, making Kanita more reassured.
Kanita deliberately took out a couple of the human’s mortgage equipment for mechanical identification. Sure enough, it was legendary grade equipment. If something happened, at least he would not suffer a loss for these things.
After providing the 7 million, the following days would be tight. Kanita adopted Solana’s proposal to remain a tough attitude toward Joseph’s forces on the surface. The effect of this bluff was not bad. Joseph really used the tactic of avoiding Kanita. He didn’t mention a word about the fire of Town Mordo’s granary and the veteran, Freddy as though nothing happened. Joseph was attempting to knock off his opponent by playing safe.
Only Kanita and a few people knew that Town Moling was just an empty shell. In the case of a shortage of funds, this kind of momentum by putting a front wouldn’t last long. The key depended on whether Charles’ promise could be fulfilled.
Sometimes, the more hopeful the wait, the more painful it was. When discussing the situation with Samuel alone, Kanita couldn’t help but ask, “Aren’t you worried at all?”
“Worried about Charles? Or worried about myself?” Samuel shook his head, “I have absolute trust in my brother as always.”
This kind of unhesitating trust and sincere respect made Kanita a little jealous. He never had such an elder brother in his life. Even since he grew up, he and Joseph were sworn enemies.
“Relax.” Samuel smiled slightly, “If my brother can’t come back, it’s definitely not a trust problem, but a real difficulty. If there is such a day, I will never run away, but will continue to stay here to help you.”
“Not to mention 7 million, it is way worthwhile to be able to get help from Sir Samuel even if it is 10 times or 100 times more than this value,” Kanita rejoiced. Samuel was now his most powerful fighting force. If Samuel could help him for a long time, plus those mortgage legendary grade equipment, he already made a fortune even if Charles really did not return.
Of course, Kanita didn’t know that Samuel’s absolute trust was built on the Blood Oath of Light. Meanwhile, the “brother” whom Samuel absolutely trusted did not go to the human world at all, but to Town Moling which was just under Kanita’s control. However, he changed his location and moved into the hotel.
Chen Rui did not waste time in the hotel and directly entered the Super System. The powerful strength was the real guarantee. His enemies were many and powerful. To contend with those enemies and even win, he must seize the time for training.
The most important thing about Megrez state was training the power of the “world”. Chen Rui had tried before. As long as the power of the “world” could make a substantial breakthrough, there would be a leap in strength, speed, spirit and other aspects. If he did not train the “world” and simply improved his personal attributes, he would not be able to advance after reaching a certain degree. It seemed that training “Megrez” was the only way.
Chen Rui came to the training ground. He just chose the 100 fold time rule. He meditated and focused while sitting down cross-legged. Stars appeared around his body; it was the [Galaxy Territory].
Skill in the training ground had no time limit. Chen Rui sat in the middle of the [Galaxy Territory], quietly experiencing the rhythm and power of the stars. He secretly matched with the solar system’s consciousness state in the Super System. However, compared with the “real” galaxy in the Super System, [Galaxy Territory] was just like a body with no real soul. In other words, it was just an illusion with some special power. There was no real texture.
Even after integrating the power of the spiritual imprint from Shura into the [Galaxy Territory] to become the [Dark Star Territory], the feeling of this empty shelf was still the same. What is actually missing? Is it the so-called rule? Or the rhythm? Anyway… I don’t understand.
The present [Galaxy Territory] could barely be called a pseudo-territory. It was already very impressive that a Great Demon King level power could use the pseudo-territory that could only be understood by the Demon Emperor level. But Chen Rui did not have the slightest complacency because he, who had the Super System, had taken a completely different path from demons or humans from the beginning.
This “Megrez” in the Megrez state training method represented the real world or the real territory. Then the only way to understand the true truth of the real territory was to break through “Megrez” and reach the next level of state.
For now, it’s still far away. Chen Rui put away his thoughts and began to meditate. Gradually, wisps of dark silk-like smoky mist appeared from the [Galaxy Territory], blinking all over the galaxy. The entire [Galaxy Territory] became gloomy and terrifying.
This was no longer the appearance of [Dark Star Territory], but Chen Rui was still very steady and calmly said, “You’re here.”
A gruesome laughter came from the dark mist, “It seems that you deliberately let me out?”
It was Shura.
Shura, also known as inner demon, was a strange conscious body derived from Chen Rui’s [Refined Mind] test. It should be annihilated with the passing of [Refined Mind], but Shura had not disappeared. Not knowing why this happened, it seemed to have become an independent life. According to his words, as long as the darkness in Chen Rui’s heart remained, Shura would never really perish.
Shura’s appearance within Chen Rui’s expectation because he had eaten a realm king fruit before entering the Super System. This was the last one and it was the last day of the realm king fruit’s validity.
There were three realm king fruits in total. The spiritual imprint produced by the realm king fruit’s “illusion” had a very strong stimulating and strengthening effect on the pseudo-territory of the Demon Emperor level, but its validity was only three months. After he ate the first one in the Crystal Valley and obtained the spiritual imprint of Shura’s dark power, he combined it with the [Galaxy Territory] to comprehend the [Dark Star Territory]. He ate the second one after returning to the Dark Moon. When Shura appeared again at that time, it surprised Chen Rui, but he finally defeated Shura with his will, making the imprint of dark power deeper.
At that time, Chen Rui faintly felt that the imprint with this power seemed to have a deeper mystery.
Therefore, even after knowing that eating the realm king fruit might be accompanied by the appearance of Shura, he still ate the realm king fruit without hesitation.
The real gains were often accompanied by costs and dangers. Overcoming challenges and not retreating was the reason why Chen Rui eventually had his power today.
“You seem to have mastered the way to make me appear?” Shura asked with an evil smile without attacking in a hurry.
Chen Rui said lightly, “Even if I don’t get you out, you will come out sooner or later.”
Shura pondered, “You have the potential, wisdom, perseverance and determination to pursue power. Why don’t you accept my power? Is it for some ridiculous reason to exclude the existence of darkness?”
“I can’t deny the existence of darkness. Just like the change of yin and yang in the world, which are contradicting and opposing, constitute the root of this world. However, I have my own persistence. I will not give up on some things. I will pursue power in my own way, and my determination is greater than you think.” Chen Rui suddenly smiled, “As for accepting your power, am I not doing it now?”
“Stubborn!” Shura’s face was even more ruthless, and he sneered, “Want to use me as a whetstone? Your knife will break in just a few moves.”
“It’s not the first time I heard this.” Chen Rui recalled his memories, “But the truth is that this knife is getting sharper now.”
“You seem to be quite confident? Hmph! Don’t think that I can’t exert power beyond you just because I’m limited to some symbiotic rule. It’s not only you who keeps improving!” Shura’s dark breath slowly changed. “During this period of time, a strange power in me has gradually recovered. Although I don’t know where this power comes from, I’m certain that this is the ultimate power. The dark power in the past cannot be compared with this. You took the initiative to call me out this time; you’re courting death! I’ll take over your consciousness and all of you today!”
The ultimate strength? Chen Rui looked solemn. Judging from Shura’s appearance, he is not bragging. The dark breath which could have caused various negative debuffs gradually changed and merged into one breath.
This breath was vast and far-reaching. It was filled with an inexplicable sense of immensity, as if it had existed in the world since ancient times. Chen Rui only glanced once at it, but he felt an irresistible feeling in his heart.
Although limited to a certain rule, the level of power displayed by Shura couldn’t surpass Chen Rui’s “actual body”, the “quality” contained in this breath of power far exceeded Chen Rui. It even exceeded all the powers he recognized. Even Catherine, the second strongest powerhouse in the Demon Realm, was uncomparable.
What kind of power is this?
Chen Rui had no time to think about it. He took a deep breath, and suppressed the fear in his mind. His hands released rays of black qi, and the surrounding galaxy suddenly turned into black gem-like [Dark Star Territory] which quickly spun along with his thoughts.
Shura didn’t move while a strange smile appeared at the corner of his mouth. His breath suddenly increased. The planets in the [Dark Star Territory] exploded, and the whole [Galaxy Territory] immediately showed signs of collapse.
Chen Rui was very shocked. The [Dark Star Territory], a skill formed purely with conscious energy, was actually broken apart by that horrifying force as if it was an entity.
It could be said that the “unreasonable” and powerful rule had already surpassed the “consciousness” category. Upon a contact, Chen Rui knew that he could not take it. The skill in the training ground had no time limit, but his strongest [Dark Star Territory] was already at stake in just the blink of an eye. I will definitely be defeated very soon. I wanted to use Shura’s power to improve myself initially. I never thought I’d encounter such a huge risk !
Will my consciousness and body really be swallowed by Shura?
In the moment when the [Dark Star Territory] was about to collapse, Chen Rui immediately withdrew from the training ground without any hesitation and appeared in the Super System’s [Sun Territory].
In the test of [Refined Mind], Shura was defeated in this place, so his memory was still fresh. With a sneer, Shura fully stimulated the breath of his body and spread it to the Super System’s solar system.
The [Dark Star Territory]’s power was far inferior than the real “territory” of Super System (Chen Rui understood it this way). He was frightened by this breath at the training ground just now, so his fighting spirit was suppressed to the lowest point. He didn’t have time to make more judgments. In the Super System’s solar system, Chen Rui finally had a taste of the real feeling of this breath now. There was actually a hint of familiarity.
Although this breath was not particularly powerful, it was an unparalleled pure power of destruction.
There were too many immortal beings in the universe with trillions of years of life or glory, but these couldn’t escape the end of destruction after all. Death was an unchanging universal truth, as was creation. The cycle of life and death was originally the simplest and most profound eternal truth.
When Shura’s destructive breath had completely dissipated, the Super System’s solar system began to shake, and there was a sign of collapse in space. Chen Rui was taken aback. When he was first promoted to Alioth State, it was probably equivalent to the early stage of Demon King. The Demon Overlord-level Glorfin invaded the solar system by relying on the power of the artifact, God-Eating Mask, to shake this solar system.
Chen Rui already had the power of the Great Demon King level now, and Shura couldn’t use a stronger level of power than him, but he could even affect and destroy the Super System’s solar system. This was the “qualitative” difference.
Chen Rui, whose spirit was integrated with the solar system, was badly hit. He was quick-witted and immediately responded. The space of the solar system began to distort, and the planet disappeared suddenly, forming a strange black hole.
A black hole was a kind of celestial body which had strong gravitational force. It was a bottomless hole in the universe. Once any substance fell into it, it could no longer escape. Even light was of no exception. However, the power of this destruction actually disappeared as expected, and even the black hole began to twist strangely.
However, Chen Rui could already feel that the black hole, which evolved from the Star Devouring mode, was gradually absorbing the destruction power. Shura’s facial expression finally began to look panicked.
The energy devoured by Star Devouring could be absorbed and converted for its own use by Star Conversion. This was the case with the conscious power swallowed by Glorfin last time, but the power absorbed this time did not appear in Star Conversion. Instead, it seemed to be absorbed by the Super System itself.
When Chen Rui was unleashing Star Devouring, he also experienced the familiar destructive power, and he suddenly remembered something.
“Shura, I know where you came from!”
Shura himself said that he was originally just a trace of energy that was about to fade away. He gained strength and consciousness from the darkness of Chen Rui’s inner world and became the so-called inner demon. When Chen Rui passed the [Refined Mind], not only Shura did not disappear, but the independence of his consciousness became stronger and stronger. He could even exert such a terrifying power now.
However, Shura didn’t know where he came from.
This was a mystery.
Chen Rui couldn’t help saying this. It shocked Shura who was already unable to sustain it, “I’m…”
At this moment of distraction, the remaining power which was running out was suddenly swallowed up. Before Shura finished speaking, he had vanished into thin air. This short but thrilling battle was finally over.
Shura just disappeared, but he would appear again next time. Similarly, he would be back with this terrifying force.
The black hole faded away, and the solar system regained its original brilliance and beauty. It seemed to be the same as usual on the surface, but Chen Rui could feel that there was some additional mysterious breath. It seemed to be the kind of… destruction?
He exposed Shura’s origins just now not as a battle strategy, but because he really recalled his memory.
Shura exuded a somewhat familiar destruction breath which he once felt in one place.
To be precise, it was a thing.
The silver box that could even terrify the mighty dragon?
