It was the fifth time.
Not sure what exactly did Roman use to induce the spirit power of the evil eye nest, but in a sense, this kind of spirit power was larger than Chen Rui’s previous encounter, yet it was not dangerous for people other than Roman. It was as if there was a whirlpool in his left eye which sucked in all the spirit power .
For Roman, this was the beginning of a nightmare. It would bring unimaginable pain with utter misery every time. It was a battle with oneself. He could truly break through only by conquering and surpassing himself.
Chen Rui understood this pain very well. He had encountered similar experiences many times in the [Refined Mind], especially when he slept for 2 months. There were many times where he was on the verge of collapse and death.
If it weren’t for Chen Rui’s use of power and pharmacy, perhaps Roman would completely collapse in the third time, but it was a fluke to save him that time. In this kind of training, external forces could play a very minor role, and the most important thing was to rely on himself.
Otherwise, even if there was a resurrection potion, Chen Rui could only save a walking dead with a nervous breakdown. Roman didn’t even have the strength to turn over or scream. His body which was covered in cold sweat kept twitching involuntarily, The dry blood on his left eye began to bleed again. His teeth were clenched, and a couple of names sounded from his throat from time to time. This was his self-reminder to support his will, and it was also the biggest and last pillar.
It was mostly Delia’s name, as well as Roman’s father and several unknown names. Chen Rui and Athena were also surprisingly among them.
Chen Rui clenched his fists. This is my partner, but unfortunately all I can do now is just watch him.
When he was in a coma for 2 months at the beginning… This guy somehow felt that way too.
The blood stains on the ground gradually expanded. It was hard to believe that so much blood seeped from a closed eye. If it was an ordinary human, perhaps he had already lost too much blood and died. The terrifying distortion on Roman’s skin appeared again as if something was creeping inside. Some of the bulging parts had clear blood vessels and cracks as if they might burst at any time. Chen Rui knew that it was a critical juncture… Previously, Roman almost exploded and died at this step. Chen Rui anxiously waited attentively. He was ready to rescue at any time.
Roman’s body trembled more and more intensely. “Boom! Boom! Boom!” With rumbling bursts, he suddenly became a blood man. Such a bad situation did not happen previously and Chen Rui was taken aback. As he tried to rescue Roman, the blood suddenly turned into a blood mist… It enveloped Roman and gradually formed a strange image in the blood mist which looked like a demonic beast. However, the image was very vague, so the specific appearance was not clear. As time passed… the image began to become clearer.
Originally, this unprecedented change should be a sign of success, but Roman’s body seemed unable to support the completion of the image as he began to shrivel at a speed visible to the naked eye like a dried corpse.
Chen Rui felt the rapid weakening of Roman’s vitality, and it was already weak to the extreme in a blink of an eye. The image of the demonic beast that had been gradually clear began to collapse. It was clearly a sign of death. Chen Rui made a prompt decision to exchange a bottle of resurrection potion… He sprinkled it directly on Roman’s shriveled body, and the vitality of that collapsed “dried corpse” suddenly became stronger. His body and vitality also recovered step by step. It seemed that Chen Rui was lucky with this move as Roman was pulled back from the death line.
The image of the demonic beast condensed by the blood mist was quite clear. This was a demonic beast similar to a mantis with its front paws like two sharp knives.
The “Magic Warrior” of the “Mantis” constellation?
Chen Rui was stunned. The image only lasted for a moment before disappearing in the blood mist… The blood mist began to quickly return to Roman’s left eye.
After a long time… his closed eyes slowly opened, and the pupil of his eye flashed a strange red ray… Even Chen Rui felt the soul shake at the moment of staring at the eye.
When Chen Rui was converging his mind to transfer power for defense, Roman’s pupils had recovered. Although his expression was exhausted, his eyes flashed with ecstasy and excitement.
Chen Rui was overjoyed, “Did you succeed?”
“Hehe, of course. Don’t you know who I am? [The Eye of Evil] already has the power of [Destroying Evil] now, but it still takes time to become familiar with this new power gradually.” Roman’s gaze fell on the empty bottle in Chen Rui’s hand. He shook slightly, “Just now… is it a resurrection potion?”
Chen Rui showed a look of regret, “Yes, even if there is grand master inheritance, it is difficult to get it. It is wasted on a second hand product like you.”
Although Roman didn’t understand the meaning of second hand product, he could hear that it was by no means a commendatory term, so he immediately expressed regret, “The resurrection potion can only be used once in a lifetime, but you actually took away my precious first time. If Delia knew it, she would be sad…”
Chen Rui was dumbfounded, “If you continue to be so disgusting, I’ll give you aphrodisiac , and then throw you into a bunch of perverted groups who like men.”
Roman shivered, “Leader… this move is too cruel. You are the real demon.”
“Cut the crap and drink the [Recovery] potion. Eat something and take a good rest, then we capture the evil eye. The time limit for Isabella is 3 days. If we are fast, we may make it in time.”
Roman did not speak any more, and immediately began to regain his strength. This time, he escaped from the dead and had a breakthrough successfully. He also consumed a bottle of the most precious potion that was enough to shake the Demon Realm, but he did not say a word of thanks to Chen Rui. He acknowledged these in his heart. Even though this guy seemed to be outgoing and almost shameless, he was actually not good at expressing his true emotions. Furthermore, some words were unnecessary between partners.
Originally, Roman’s breakthrough had almost exhausted all of his power, but the highest-level resurrection potion’s effectiveness was extraordinary. Coupled with his newly acquired power of [Destroying Evil], his current state was quite fit, but his spirit was too exhausted previously. After a few hours of rest, he finally recovered most of it. Next, he needed to capture and subdue an evil eye that was not lower than his own level. If everything went smoothly, this evil eye would turn into a spiritual body mode, becoming the lifelong companion beast of [The Eye of Evil] that would accompany Roman throughout his life. The two were each other’s contract objects…sharing power and evolving together. When [The Eye of Evil] realized the next power of the evil king, it could also be united with the lifelong companion beast to manipulate the evil eyes that were lower than the power of the lifelong companion beast. The number of manipulations was proportional to its power.
Although Roman had realized the power of [Destroying Evil], his overall strength remained at the early stage of the Great Demon King. However, after gaining the power of [Destroying Evil], he should be able to break through to the small realm very quickly. As for the Demon Emperor, the key lied in the power of the territory… It was still very early.
It was not easy to capture a Great Demon King-level guy in the evil eye’s nest, because these communal demonic beasts would come together when they were provoked. According to Roman, there was also a Demon Emperor-level evil eye tyrant. Although [The Eye of Evil] could generate the breath of enhanced evil eye and live in peace with it, this was in the absence of hostility. Once the hostility was felt by the sensitive evil eye, then it would not be possible for even [The Eye of Evil] to avoid attacks.
For example, if the plover bird wanted to kill the crocodile, would it still allow the crocodile to forage in its mouth? Its entire body would long be chewed to pieces.
In this case, Chen Rui and Roman could only capture their prey as quickly as possible, and then quickly evacuate. Otherwise, if they were detected by the evil eye tyrant… Perhaps it would be a problem to even get out.
Roman’s advantage was that he wouldn’t be attacked by the evil eye before his hostility was exposed. Therefore, the two men’s plan was that Chen Rui, who had been marked as an “intruder”, would be used as a bait to attract attacks. Meanwhile, Roman would wait for the opportunity to capture an evil eye of the Great Demon King level.
Hence, the previously missing “prey” entered the vision of the evil eyes again. Chen Rui didn’t have to deliberately exude any spiritual communication power… The few extremely vengeful evil eyes floated towards him with several companions. Chen Rui avoided the long range attack of the rays while releasing gluttonous vine to interfere and attract the evil eyes.
The evil eyes were very angry at the obvious provocation of this cunning prey, so they chased him.
If the lights were bright, you could see a string of evil eyes floating behind a high-speed turning figure. The scene was quite hilarious, but Chen Rui himself didn’t feel any joy… Although the speed of the evil eyes were at a disadvantage… but he still couldn’t move faster than their spirit power. There were 3 rays and a spirit shock so far… Fortunately, 2 of the rays were shot by a Demon King-level evil eye, and he was wearing element-resistant leather armor, so he was not hurt. It’s just that the evil eye’s talent for defying defense was too overpowering, and that spirit shock penetrated his spirit defense again, almost knocking him down.
Chen Rui felt that he was more and more like a flesh shield who was attracting and defending against monsters in the dungeon, attracting the hatred of all enemies. The problem was that there was no healer to help him increase his blood, and there was no high-output teammate to kill the monsters. He did not know whether Roman had spotted the target and prepared to defeat the enemy in one strike? The talent of the evil eye was too terrifying, and the number kept increasing. If the tyrant comes, this poor duo would surely be destroyed together.
Roman followed the group of evil eyes. The breath of [The Eye of Evil] he currently exuded was a supplement to the spirit power consumption of the evil eyes, so the evil eyes habitually did not show hostility to him, but he only had one chance. Once he missed it, he could only flee with sir leader.
Roman had spotted an evil eye at the middle stage of Great Demon King behind the big group. Generally speaking, it would be better if the demonic beast, who would accompany the spirit body, was stronger because the lifelong companion spirit body shared power with him. This meant that his power would rise more slowly than normal in the future. Of course, his power would be stronger.
Just as the evil eyes fired one after another while focusing on chasing Chen Rui, Roman finally took action. The wind mastery and the blood talent of “[Flash]” were activated at the same time. As the Great Demon King-level evil eye suddenly condensed, it was already restrained by the wind element. At almost the same time, Roman’s figure had appeared behind the evil eye, punching the head with the giant eye.
The evil eye’s spirit power had reached the peak of the Great Demon King level, so it was aware of the danger, but it was too late to dodge since these incidents happened all of a sudden, and Roman punched directly toward it.
However, Roman’s punch stopped about 10 centimeters away from the evil eye because there was already a thin shield in front of the evil eye. This lightning-like punch only shook the shield but couldn’t break through it.
“Magic shield? Damn mutated talent!” Roman did not expect that the prey that he had been targeted for so long would have such a mutant talent. Many evil eyes had already felt the abnormality behind them, and they began to turn back. The evil eye that was attacked immediately spoke of Roman’s behavior with its special spirit communication, and the evil eyes floated back angrily.
Roman was taken aback and hurriedly increased his power output, but this magic shield was created by the evil eye’s mutated talent whose spirit power was already very powerful. Roman was anxious but he was unable to break through. Instead, there were a few evil eyes floating over and they began to launch a ray attack on him.
Roman hurriedly dodged. The Demon Realm’s strongest speed talent [Flash] really deserved its reputation as none of those rays could hit him. Roman was resolute and did not give up the mutated evil eye. Instead, he braced the rays and the spirit shock to launch a fierce attack – This evil eye had a mutated talent, and if it could surrender to be his lifelong companion beast, his combat effectiveness would also be greatly improved.
At the moment when the shield of the evil eye was about to collapse, a figure suddenly appeared beside him. “Leader?” Although Roman was taken aback, there were only two people underground, he and Chen Rui, so he was not particularly nervous.
“Let’s go!” Chen Rui’s voice was anxious.
“Wait! I’m about to catch this evil eye…”
“Catch a fart, the evil eye tyrant is here!” Chen Rui made Roman have a chill. Without any hesitation, he withdrew his hand and clasped Chen Rui’s arm. His [Flash] talent was activated at full speed and they fled backwards.
“It’s over, the evil eye holds grudges. If I miss it this time, I will be their enemy when I come in in the future.” While Roman said, the speed of his feet was not slowed down at all, and they pulled apart from the evil eyes behind them.
The evil eye tyrant was a Demon Emperor-level evil eye. Perhaps even a typical Demon Overlord powerhouse was not willing to provoke it. The current power of the two was basically for escape only, not to mention that there was such a large group of evil eyes.
“It’s all your fault. You didn’t even defeat one even after watching it for a long time!” Chen Rui felt resentful towards him for failing to succeed. Chen Rui had attracted hatred for so long, but he didn’t even defeat a little beast here.
“How would I know that it even has mutated ability…” Roman knew he was wrong, so he said with a bitter expression, “Otherwise, I would just catch an early Great Demon King.
At this time, they had almost pulled a safe distance from the group of evil eyes behind them. Chen Rui suddenly shook and stopped. As Roman was just about to ask, [The Eye of Evil] suddenly felt a horrifying spirit oppression behind him. His facial expression suddenly changed.
Chen Rui’s [Analytical Eyes] showed: Race: Evil Eye (mutated). Comprehensive strength: A-.
Physique: B, Strength: B, Spirit: A+, Agility: B
The evil eye at Demon Emperor level… The tyrant!
In terms of agility, it is only B. How can it catch up?
At this moment, the information behind him appeared at the front instantly. Chen Rui and Roman felt this change at the same time, and they were all startled, Teleport!
An evil eye tyrant with the mutated talent of teleport! Even running away is a problem now!
 Aphrodisiac is a drug that arouses sexual instinct.
