Chen Rui didn’t have the time to be cautious anymore. The stridebug appeared under his feet, rushing toward the sound source at full speed, then he saw a vague figure screaming while clutching his head.
Strangely, his screaming sound did not attract the evil eyes, and those terrifying creatures weren’t around.
As Chen Rui got closer, he realized it was indeed Roman who had set off for the capital a few months ago. At this time, the spiritual wave of the evil eye in the distance had completely disappeared. Roman was still screaming. Although his cry was hoarse, he did not stop as if he wanted to scream his lungs out.
“Roman!” Chen Rui yelled a few times, but Roman didn’t react at all.
Chen Rui patted him on the shoulder. This almost powerless movement caused Roman’s body to collapse suddenly. He panted for a while, but he was still screaming in his throat.
Chen Rui felt that Roman’s body had reached a very weak state. What was even more frightening was that his spirit seemed to be in a state of collapse that he didn’t even recognize Chen Rui. Chen Rui gritted his teeth and knocked Roman out.
This was a relatively spacious cave. After Chen Rui took out the magic tent, he helped Roman into it, fed him a bottle of tranquilizer potion, and covered him with a thin blanket.
The tranquilizer potion was the grand master potion produced by the exchange center, but it could only stabilize the mood and calm the spirit. If Roman really lost his mind, the tranquilizer potion would be useless. Although this guy would cause troubles normally, Chen Rui was very sure that Roman was a trustworthy partner who would even sacrifice his life for his partner without hesitation. Seeing Roman’s unstable and poor condition, Chen Rui clenched his fists to the extent of almost pinching blood out of his palm. He added Isabella on his to-kill list.
This vicious woman must die!
About 3 hours later, Roman woke up slowly, but he still had not recovered his sanity. He made a “hehe” sound which resembled the roar of beasts. It seemed that the tranquilizer potion did not work.
The reason Roman was like this should be due to the terrifying spirit power of the eye demons in this underground nest full of evil eyes. As Chen Rui was anxious in his heart, he suddenly thought of a way to channel the power of Megrez state to condense his sound into a line. He kept shouting Delia’s name into Roman’s ears.
Although he still hadn’t fully grasped the Megrez state, this power had a hint of territory. The voice penetrated into Roman’s consciousness, and Roman’s roaring gradually became lower.It turned into a violent gasp, then began to scream again. Obviously, there was a fierce fight in the spiritual world.
After a long time, the bad situation finally subsided.
“Is it the leader…” Roman’s hoarse voice was weaker than ever.
“You finally woke up!” Chen Rui breathed a sigh of relief and let go of his hand because continuously controlling the spirit power like this made him feel tired.
“I’m going to starve to death… Get me some wine to drink…”
“You are still thinking about drinking at this time, you should really just die!” Chen Rui cursed while he took out some dry food and put it in the water. After boiling it into a paste on the fire, he fed it to Roman.
Roman finally recovered a little after eating. He laid weakly on the ground, “I actually owe you another life. Although I don’t like men, I can consider repaying you with my body if necessary.”
“What repay!” Chen Rui knocked his head hard, “Disgusting guy!”
However, he should have recovered to be able to be so disgusting.
Roman had no strength to evade now, so he could only grin, “I owe you my life anyhow. Didn’t you say that the person who owes the debt is the uncle, and the person who collects the debt is the grandson…”
“Reserve your strength and recover quickly so that we can run away.” Chen Rui didn’t bother to bicker with him. “There are no beautiful women in this evil eye’s nest. When I came just now, I was surrounded by a few evil eyes and almost couldn’t escape.”
“Why did you come here…”
“My plan has been half-successful. The envoy sent by the capital to the Red Spirit this time was actually Isabella. I went to the capital with her. On the way, she stated a condition which is to come here to find someone. I didn’t expect that person to be you.” Chen Rui gritted his teeth and said, “That vicious woman made you into this. After my plan is successful, she will be the first person I’d kill!”
Roman shook his head, “Actually, she is not to be blamed for this.
“Are you bewitched by that woman?” This answer was beyond Chen Rui’s expectation.
“The woman you are talking about…” Roman smiled bitterly, “is really my father’s younger sister.”
Chen Rui frowned and said, “If that’s the case, why did she trick you to come to such a terrifying place?
“This place… I came voluntarily here.” Roman slowly sat up. “This place is a shortcut to gain power.”
“Shortcut?” Chen Rui frowned, “Use those evil eyes to hone your will? Do you know what you were like when I saw you? If you can’t wake up just now, I’m afraid Delia will really become a widow!”
“I’m mentally prepared. In the history of the Belphegor Royal Family, most of the people who used this method to train have lost their lives while a few have become lunatics. Only 1 in 10,000 people can succeed.” Roman sat up as his eyes became firm, “Even if there is only one in ten thousandth hope, I will not let it go!”
“What do you mean?”
“This is a secret of the Belphegor Royal Family, but it doesn’t matter if I say it out now since the Sloth Royal Family has fallen.” Roman struggled to raise his hand and pointed to his left eye.
[The Eye of Evil]… Evil eye? Chen Rui suddenly thought of something, Is there any relationship between these two terms?
“Leader may have thought of something.” Roman sighed, “[The Eye of Evil] is hailed as the left eye of the Demon God. It’s not just as simple as seeing through. As for the evil poison, it’s just a small trick. If this is the case, how can it be as famous as [The Eye of Incubus] that created the spiritual territory? What I’m awakening now is only [The Eye of Evil]’s primary power, [Entering Evil]. Some of the mutated bloodline kinsmen can directly possess the higher level, [Destroying Evil]. Unfortunately, my talent is not good because I’m not from the royal family with mutated bloodline. Therefore, if I want to have the power of [Destroying Evil], you must use the power of evil eye to break through.”
The power breath of [The Eye of Evil] had a mysterious connection with the evil eye which could produce the spirit power of assisting and enhancing the evil eye, making these terrifying demonic beasts feel very comfortable.
The Belphegor Royal Family with [The Eye of Evil] would not be regarded as an enemy by the evil eye unless they start the attack. The spirit power of the evil eye could also train [The Eye of Evil] and even stimulate it to evolve into the next form.
This was a mutually beneficial relationship.
However, the spirit power of the evil eye was much more dangerous to the Belphegor Royal Family than the gain for the Belphegor Royal Family. This kind of spiritual “training” was a bit similar to the [Refined Mind] that Chen Rui experienced. It was a training that used high pressure to stimulate the body’s potential and will in order to break through one’s own bottleneck in an extremely dangerous situation. A careless move could lead to spirit power exhaustion and death. Even if they survive by chance, most of them would suffer from mental breakdown and neurological disorders. Only a few people could truly succeed in this hellish training.
Isabella agreed to tell Roman the whereabouts of Breeze Shadow Boots, provided that Roman had the power of [Destroying Evil]. Roman learned from Isabella that there was an evil eye’s nest at the underground ruins of Trevante, so he came here.
“You have a long way to go for training, and this method is too dangerous. Let’s get out of here first. You almost went crazy just now.”
If Chen Rui didn’t rush to this place coincidentally, Roman would probably have a complete mental breakdown.
“I’m not leaving.” Roman shook his head firmly, “I don’t have a mutated bloodline, and I don’t have the magical inheritance like you. This is already the most effective shortcut. Moreover, before I fell into chaos, I had a vague enlightenment of the breakthrough. As long as I survive it, I can gain the power of [Destroying Evil]! I will never give up this opportunity even if I have to die!”
“You have only one life!” Chen Rui said angrily, “Do you want to make Delia sad?”
“You don’t understand!” Roman was suddenly emotional as he punched the ground, “There are so many times where Delia woke up from a nightmare and shivered in my arms, and she could hardly bear the torture of [Soul Shackles]. It is extremely tormenting. Not only that, I also saw how my father suffered gravely from the [Soul Shackles] before he eventually died in front of me! I must kill Broc to remove Delia’s [Soul Shackles] and avenge my father!”
Seeing Roman’s rage, Chen Rui was silent for a while. He was not very clear about Delia and Roman’s pain. Even Athena did not know about it. Roman looked like a rascal all day long while Delia seemed to be having a good time. In fact, compared with the previous Incubus, she was indeed a lot happier with him. However, the pain hidden behind her happiness might be even more aching.
Chen Rui took a deep breath, “If you insist, then I will accompany you here. At least, there is also someone to bring back a corpse or a lunatic to Delia.”
“Don’t sir leader have a very important plan?”
“Hmph! Don’t take yourself too seriously. Do you think an insignificant fellows like you can influence my plan?”
Roman looked at Chen Rui for a while, and then grinned suddenly, “Leader, should I look affectionately into your eyes?”
“Get lost!” Chen Rui showed a disgusting expression. “Tell me more about [Destroying Evil]. Don’t think that I don’t know you are hiding something. If you don’t tell the truth, you will affect me!”
“I am really like a naked man in front of the leader…” Roman’s shy looks almost blinded sir leader’s disbelief eyes in the dark. “In fact, there is nothing more. I just need to get [Destroying Evil]. After that, I need to capture an evil eye of at least the same level to integrate its power…”
Capturing a member of the Great Demon King level alive in the nest of the evil eyes? Chen Rui wanted to punch that pretentious face repeatedly.
In fact, this step was indeed very important. The higher the level of the captured evil eye, the better it was. If it could be successfully integrated to generate a certain mutation, the highest level of talent power could be achieved. Moreover, he could command a large number of evil eyes to battle as his subordinates.
Imagine the spectacular scene when a group of evil eyes release spirit power or rays together…
This was the real Demon God’s Left Eye——[The Eye of Evil]!
This army would be unstoppable if Roman really could get the power.
