Before Broc could ask, Chen Rui, who was on the opposite side, had already stood up. A faint light on Chen Rui’s sword-like palm slashed across the air.
Broc instinctively felt the threat of the incoming invisible sharp qi. At this time, the strength in his body seemed to be further weakened. With a loud shout, his blue pupils turned black. The bright restraining light suddenly dimmed, and the restraint force was greatly reduced.
Broc, who barely recovered his ability to move, immediately moved his arm in front of him. As his palms stretched out, a cluster of black mist appeared. It even completely swallowed the invisible sword qi of the [Aura Blade].
Just when Broc was at his weakest point where his old power was exhausted and new power had yet to emerge, a faintly smoked shadow appeared behind Broc abruptly. Broc suddenly became alert. If it was usual times, Broc was still able to respond in time even if the opponent was extremely fast, but at this time, his state had been weakened a lot. So, his body had been unable to keep up with the reaction of his mind. Particularly, this shadow attacked at a critical moment right after he broke out of the restraint and resolved the [Aura Blade]. The timing was quite accurate.
At the juncture of life and death, Broc’s potential was finally unleashed. When the sharp murderous aura came to his body, he dodged in time, but felt a pain in his chest. His right lung lobe had been pierced by some kind of sharp weapon. A Demon Overlord physique actually couldn’t defend against this blow. It was as if the wound was torn apart by some terrifying beast. Even more terrifying was that a sharp force penetrated into his body and began to quickly disintegrate the power of [The Eye of Incubus] like it was its natural nemesis.
The damage was so severe that Broc roared wildly. The power of the peak of Demon Emperor burst out, completely swallowing the rampaging force inside his body. He waved his arm backwards speedily. The figure behind him snorted before flying out like a untied kite.
“Isabella!” Broc had already seen the silhouette of the sneak attack. He roared furiously. When he was about to pursue her, he felt his body sank as his weight suddenly increased by 10 times… His movements slowed down. At the same time, the scattered bright light around him became colorful lights which made his body heavier.
The strange thing was, putting aside the caster “Charles”… Isabella was not affected. Even the Beelzebub Royal Family with [Earth Mastery] talent, might not be able to control this [Gravity] to such an accurate extent.
Isabella really changed into another suit of clothes. It was just a tight suit for fighting. Just now she was hit by Broc’s strong counterattack, so her injury was not minor… The corners of her mouth were full of blood and her face was terribly pale, but her green eyes were still exduing murderous intent. She was holding a dagger in her hand. It was the legendary grade weapon, “Searing Shadow”, that Chen Rui gave her.
“Isabella! How dare you betray the organization. Aren’t you afraid of being eroded by the curse?” “I didn’t betray the organization, I just want to kill you. This is different from betrayal. Who are you to represent the whole Bloodfall?” Isabella sneered while spitting out blood… “Besides, I don’t plan to leave here alive today. Whatever curse or poison erosion, I really don’t care about it.”
Broc tried his best to suppress the quickly diminishing power in his body. He felt that this toxin was very difficult to get rid of. It couldn’t even be dispelled by secret techniques. He gritted his teeth and said, “Bitch! What kind of poison have you used?”
“3 kinds. The flower scent you smell in the carriage, the fragrance on my body, plus the special dragon incense in the yard… One is nothing, but when combined, even Demon Overlords may not be immune to this toxin. Don’t worry, it will only weaken your strength. It is not fatal.”
Once my power drops to a very low point… then she can kill me as she wishes. With the hatred of the two of us, perhaps it will be a tragic death. It will be more terrible than “not fatal.”
Broc knew what Isabella was revenging for. Her half-brother was tortured to death by him using [The Eye of Incubus], but he didn’t understand why Charles would help Isabella. He even gave up such a generous offer. Doesn’t this human illegitimate prince want to take back all the things that should belong to him? Is he just being foolish for this damn mad woman?
“Why?” Broc shouted to Chen Rui as he gathered his strength to dissolve the toxins in his body.
“Because Isabella is right… You can’t represent the entire Bloodfall. Your organization has contacted me more than one.” Chen Rui had a clever idea. He deliberately used Isabella’s words to say this, intending to interfere with Broc.
This answer really surprised Broc- Before my arrival, Bloodfall has already been in contact with this human? Who was it?
The inside of Bloodfall is not monolithic. Many factions are hostile to each other, but because of the interests and the coercion of the mysterious Bloodfall King, they rarely fight with each other openly. Nonetheless, there are still many sneak attacks going on. Azgalor and Manu are allies, while the crystal dragon is a little more distant. Since Manu is dead now, there must be people who envy or covet the status that I currently occupy.
Just as Broc’s thoughts were spinning quickly, Chen Rui immediately channeled the power that had just been charged fully. Suddenly, there were strange scenes. The sky became gloomy. A feeling of depression rose in his heart, and everything in front of him, including his power, started to age and decay. Broc had an illusion in an instant, as if he was several hundred years older suddenly.
In the eyes of this powerhouse, who was infinitely close to a Demon Overlord, the power of this territory power might not be a big deal in terms of “quantity” precisely. However, in terms of “quality”, it faintly surpassed the [Incubus Territory] he had. It was closer to the real territory of a Demon Overlord.
This is a human Demon Emperor? It really is unique! It’s just that this kind of power is still too weak. It is even inferior to an average Demon Emperor in the Demon Realm.
Compared with the decay and aging around, Isabella’s body suddenly glowed with black light. She was full of vitality. Her injury seemed to recover all at once and her whole state was doubled. Broc had an illusion. This is somewhat similar to that of the Asmodeus Royal Family. … The power of Nirvana? Impossible! The power of Nirvana is not used in this way. It should be the light element power of humans.
Isabella’s left pupil had turned golden. The Belphegor Royal Family’s “[Flash]” talent, which was the best in Demon Realm, was activated. Her speed had risen to A+. She appeared in front of Broc in an instant. The Searing Soul in her hand became numerous phantasms which covered Broc like a giant net.
Broc’s pupils were full of black light. There was a soft crackling sound on his body. He actually cracked Chen Rui territory’s aging and decaying power. However, because his power had been greatly weakened by the mixed strange poison, this kind of forceful breaking free had taken a toll on him. His internal injuries were even more severe.
[Blood River], the long sword which Broc usually used, appeared in his hands… It was exuding a strong bloody qi while swaying.
The illusory giant net created by Isabella was gradually melted by blood. The 2 of them fought several times and suddenly separated…Broc’s face and neck had a few more gruesome wounds. It was hard to imagine that it was caused by a small dagger. Isabella tightly covered her abdomen with one hand, where a lot of blood was leaking.
After Chen Rui’s territory was forcibly cracked, he felt that his spirit power seemed to have suffered some kind of recoil. The Star Power in his body began to flow backwards. It was difficult to control for a while. This was mainly because his strength did not really reach the Demon Emperor level.
Broc left Isabella and rushed toward Chen Rui. His purpose today was not to fight Isabella desperately, but this human who had mastered the black potion resources. As long as the human’s territory and magical interference were absent, it would be much simpler to kill Isabella.
Chen Rui saw his intention and teleported away instantly. As Broc was just about to catch up… Ishabella, who had launched [Flash], rushed up again. It seemed like completely a desperate way of battling by giving up defense.
When Broc yelled furiously, a lot of black smoke came out his body and spread out quickly. The entire space seemed to be enveloped by this strange smoke. Broc’s current [Incubus Territory[ could be transformed into any physical object or an intangible state which couldn’t be damaged physically. It also had the ability to swallow flesh and blood and transform them into his own power. It was absolutely easy to deal with these 2 enemies.
When Isabella’s dagger pierced Broc’s body, his body turned into black smoke and dispersed. The smoke actually wrapped up toward her. Isabella had extremely rich experience in actual combat. With a point of her dagger, waves of whirlwinds appeared, trying to blow away the black mist. .
However, after the black smoke dispersed, it quickly surrounded her again. The whirlwind power was diminishing as if it was swallowed. Itdisappeared in a moment.
At this moment, the black smoke all over the air suddenly had a strange transformation. Balls of different sizes were looming, slowly rotating with a strange rhythm.
The black smoke seemed to be at a great loss of breath. It was difficult to maintain the intangible form. Broc’s figure faintly appeared again. Broc’s surprise at this time was simply beyond words- This human has more than one territory power! Plus, this strange territory actually weakens my power by nearly half! Theoretically, if he wants to directly use his own territory in my territory, he must at least have evenly matched strength. Even so, there will be interference to some extent or even recoil, so Isabella did not forcefully use her territory. The problem is that this human is much weaker than me, but he can use this strange territory power in my [Incubus Territory] without being affected!
To be precise, this was actually not a territory, but a skill of the Super System.
Isabella was also secretly surprised. The power of “Charles” is unpredictable. No wonder not only the few people like Lordan, even the patriarch of the Lincoln Family, Sartre, was defeated in his hands. Even now, the mention of this human’s name made him show unconcealed fear.
While thinking about it, Isabella reacted quickly. In the golden light of the left eye, a destructive dazzling beam broke out and shot the already extremely weakened Broc. This attack method was exactly the same as the evil eye. It seemed that she had indeed trained in the Trevante underground ruins. It should be the power of [Destroying Evil] that combined the power of a lifelong companion beast.
Broc had been unable to maintain his intangible form, so he simply showed his true body. His hand was emitting a bloody light; he had launched the long sword’s skill [Bloodthirsty] with the secret skill of his mysterious power. The rich blood qi was entangled by the golden beam like a serpentine body.
In terms of speed alone, Isabella should surpass the current Broc, but her overall strength of the early stage Demon Emperor was far inferior, so she lost in a blink of an eye. The bloody qi quickly rewinded along the golden beam. The sword qi of the “Blood River” could erode the soul. It had a special restraining effect on [The Eye of Evil]. Isabella seemed exhausted. She was unable to retract the golden beam at that moment, so she could only tank the damage. The blood stains on her abdominal wound began to expand again.
While Broc was controlling blood qi, the figure of “Charles” appeared in front of Isabella. He actually grabbed the intangible bloody qi. The sword energy that could erode the soul disappeared without a trace after entering this person’s body. Isabella finally managed to retract her golden beam due to this. She staggered back a few steps. Her face was paler.
Chen Rui didn’t retreat but moved forward instead. By taking a great risk, he grabbed the “Blood River”, the physical entity of the bloody qi. His hand carried a strange force that made the long sword tremble slightly. As Broc’s wrist turned, the sharp sword suddenly cut Chen Rui’s hand and made it bleed. He could no longer grasp the “Blood River” firmly. He launched [Teleportation] to return to Isabella and pulled her back quickly.
Broc’s long sword flicked as he gathered the remaining power to make a big move. However, the sword body of the “Blood River” shook badly and burst open suddenly. This sudden event was completely unexpected by Broc. This meant that Broc, who was caught off guard, directly endured the force he charged on the “Blood River”, plus this quasi-legendary grade “self-destruction” force.
The bursting blades splashed in. Broc suddenly became a bloody man. His whole person almost lost his normal reaction due to the sudden shock. He would never imagine that his favorite sword, which he used the most, would automatically burst open!
Isabella thought she saw it wrongly. Broc was clearly launching an extremely violent blow just now. How come this big move has caused such a tragic situation? Even if there is a forbidden technique that hurts others and self, it doesn’t need to be so exaggerated, right?
No, it’s very likely that “Charles” has just performed some secret skills. This human’s mysterious battle methods are simply endless.
In fact, Isabella was only half right. This was indeed Chen Rui’s method, but it was a “seed” planted a long time ago.
The original attributes of the Blood River were: Increase attack speed, increase water element magic power, and swallow the enemy’s vitality and convert it into its own physical strength.
After it was modified by the Master “Arthur” in the Crystal Valley, its attributes were: Increase attack speed, increase water element magic power by 40%, swallow enemy’ vitality and convert it into its own physical strength, add [Bloodthirsty] that increase attack by 20% and weaken defense by 1%, and limited use of once a day.
It seemed that the attributes of the equipment had been enhanced a lot, but the enhancement of Chen Rui came at the cost of overdrawing the “life” of the Blood River. After being modified, the current “Blood River” was already scarred. Chen Rui deliberately used his own blood to trigger a “time bomb” planted earlier. Therefore, the poor Blood River burst open immediately. After severely injuring its master, it officially declared the end of its life.
The throbbing pain, severe injury, and the “Blood River” changes made Broc so angry that he almost lost his mind. He did not expect that he came to the Fallen Angel capital with confidence this time, but he would encounter such a frustrating failure. With a roar, the flesh and blood power of the Demon Overlord that had been absorbed in the Incubus Territory completely burst out. All the fragments in his body shot out flying. They brought out strands of black blood. The toxins mixed with strange poison were also removed quickly.
However, this forceful use of power that had not been fully absorbed would result in extremely strong recoil in the future, but Broc could no longer bother so much. If he did not use his full strength today, perhaps he would fail miserably in this easy task and die here.
I would say Broc was even more threatening in such a desperate situation, how would Chen Rui deal with him? Would his power rise to another level again?
