Rainbow Valley laboratory.
There were strange sounds from time to time. Some were roaring; some were shaking. If it weren’t for this special experiment room that was reinforced with ancient runes and Dragon Inscription, it would have collapsed long ago.
Due to the urgent situation of the Dark Moon, Chen Rui was determined this time. Regardless of danger and hiding his knowledge, he started to split the runes with all his might.
In fact, much of the ancient rune knowledge he currently had was learned from the 4 stone slabs that were not given to the fairy dragon. However, he couldn’t activate all the signs of the 4 stone slabs like the fairy dragon, so his learning was limited. Nevertheless, it was enough to bring enough help and even inspiration to Zola.
Even Ms. Fairy Dragon herself had to admit that “Richard” had become an indispensable real assistant by her side.
Chen Rui’s hand pointed to the rows of slightly flickering symbols on the central stone platform. Relying on the calculation and analysis of the [Deep Analysis], he successfully split a paragraph from it with a strange gesture. He couldn’t be sloppy during this process at all. If it was messed up, it would cause unimaginable consequences. Even this heavily protected laboratory and even the Rainbow Valley would completely disappear from the Demon Realm.
When Chen Rui had just successfully separated this complete rune paragraph, a sudden change occurred. The dozens of rune signs were scattered, spurring chaotic and bright light around like a laser cannon flying out of control.
Chen Rui sensed something amiss. He immediately activated the protective shield, but the destructive power of the light was so strong that the protective shield instantly collapsed. Zola herself was also there. With a wave of her hand, several huge transparent prisms suddenly appeared around the 2 of them. When the rampaging light hit the prism, part of it was reflected while part of it refracted. However, the structure of the prism was profound and abnormal. Some of the light refracted was weakened, while some attributes were changed. However, the angle of penetration made it impossible to touch the 2 people behind the prism.
Zola’s magic skills… is really breathtaking.
However, the penetration power of the light was so amazing that the prism gradually cracked. Fortunately, after the “laser cannon” was launched for a while… it then gradually weakened, Finally, it stopped before the prism collapsed. It flew back to the stone platform, and returned to faintly glowing texts which emitted a different blue light than before. It was quiet and beautiful as if there was no danger at all.
Chen Rui wiped his sweat… and said, “The key word of this text paragraph should be destruction rays.”
“Penetration and indestructibility should also be added.” Zola added. She quickly recorded them in the magic log. These were just preliminary definitions. In order to really crack and master the power of this rune, she needed to continue with the experiments.
Chen Rui waited for her to finish recording, and he took a deep breath, “Then… Let’s continue.”
Zola hesitated for a moment. She then glanced over the tired look on his face, “You… don’t need to rest for a while? You have hardly taken a break these 2 days.
Chen Rui looked at the last 3 lines that did not turn blue, and he shook his head, “No need.”
Zola held on to her glasses… and bit her lip softly. She suddenly drew a wonderful trajectory in the air. Chen Rui felt that there was something beating in his body accordingly… and then it gradually faded.
“It is troublesome to dissolve the marks on your body right now, and it will waste a lot of time, but I have been changed to a countdown state now. It will automatically weaken and just disappear over time.”
Chen Rui’s eyes lit up. Did I hear it wrongly? Is it an illusion just now? This way, there is no need to worry about the unnecessary problems.
With the integrity of Ms. Fairy Dragon, this is a complete rebound! No, she is stung by conscience!
Originally, he had prepared for Miss Fake Daze’s “infinite last time”, but it seemed that it was unnecessary now.
In fact, Chen Rui could feel it. At some point of time, the “treatment” of him as an experiment subject and handyman had undergone some subtle changes. It seemed to be fundamentally different from when he first came to the Rainbow Valley. Even when the fairy dragon was displeased at him after returning from the capital last time, this feeling became stronger instead.
“Miss Zola, you are really a good and considerate woman.” Chen Rui praised her sincerely for the first time.
“What?” Zola asked dazedly.
“Then… Let’s go ahead.” (This reaction makes me feel jittery with imaginary fears… Forget it, let’s not complicate the situations.)
“Oh.“ (Hmph! Will it cost your life to praise me more?)
A few hours later.
“Miss Zola, the last paragraph seems to be a high grade chain rune!”
Originally, Zola was recording and analyzing. She was startled when she heard him, and she took a closer look. She seemed surprised, “It is really a high grade chain rune! Only rune paragraphs above 16 yuan have high grade chain attributes, then this paragraph has exceeded the 14 yuan category we originally defined!”
“At least 16 yuan, so the level of danger should be quite high…” Chen Rui hesitated for a moment, “Then do you still want to extract it?”
“Of course! Don’t worry.” Zola almost patted his chest and gave her guarantee, “I’m standing next to you. I’ll definitely protect you if there’s any danger!”
I can return to the Dark Moon after finishing this. Chen Rui hesitated a little, and he finally made a decision. After repeated splitting and dismantling, this high grade chain rune paragraph was finally extracted.
In an instant, Chen Rui felt his soul trembling. A vast and profound breath hit his face. In an instant, Chen Rui seemed to feel himself as small as dust. With his current strength, he didn’t have such inferior feeling even when facing a Demon Overlord.
Zola’s eyes were full of excited gleams. She quickly recorded, “This should…… contain a trace of Demi-God-level territory’s breath!”
Chen Rui was surprised when he heard her. A trace of Demi-God territory’s breath? So powerful? This is just a copied rune, not the original seal on the Sword of Fallen Angel!
So, the Sword of Fallen Angel is really sealed by a Demi-God powerhouse?
If I really master or comprehend the mystery of ancient runes, can I get a glimpse of the realm of the Demi-God level or even the God level that is above the Demon Overlord level?
Chen Rui felt that he had touched a taboo territory. Of course, from a certain perspective, “science” was originally an exploration of taboo territory.
Perhaps, this is the way to go beyond the peak in the future?
“The level of this chain paragraph is definitely more than 16 yuan. It should be 20 yuan rune!” Zola’s eyes flashed as she felt the power.
20 yuan rune? This is no ordinary danger! Chen Rui was taken aback, “Miss Zola, let’s stop now!”
“No! This is just a trace of territory power. I’m here… no problem!” Zola glanced at the many signs that swirled and undulated like stars, “I also can’t stop now…”
As soon as she finished speaking, purple thunder lights lit up all over the sky. Zola was already prepared earlier. A semicircle electric grid appeared beside her… protecting her and Chen Rui. One after another purple lightning hit the power grid. The power grid was constantly undulating and distorting as it absorbed and assimilated the lightning power. Because lightning power was too great, the speed of grid absorption was slightly unable to keep up. There was a danger of being torn at any time. Zola waved her hand which was holding a pen, and a blue light merged into the grid. The water element power was added to greatly enhance the absorption capacity of the grid. It finally stabilized.
Chen Rui felt numb on his scalp. This is unlike the usual experiment. If I am hit by these lightning, I will really turn into a ball of coke even with a special physique.
After Zola stabilized the power grid, she began to record, “Annihilation lightning, preliminary estimated power of 18 yuan strength with continuous frequency…”
The raging lightning gradually converged. There were several dangers following that. Even Zola almost made a mistake. Chen Rui repeatedly broke into a series of cold sweats. It was really playing a death game that messed with his heartbeat.
Zola was actually a little nervous, but seeing Chen Rui’s worried look, she calmed down a lot. She added, “What are you so worried about? I said that I will protect your safety. You hold the pen and help me record now…”
As soon as she finished speaking, an abnormal change suddenly occurred. The entire laboratory became a strange place. The surrounding space showed ripples and distortions. The protective shields that were placed around the 2 people beforehand by Zola began to gradually thin out and finally disappeared. Zola’s facial expression changed drastically. She blurted out, “20 yuan-level element swallowing? Oh no! There is also spirit power restraint!”
In an instant, Chen Rui felt that he had lost contact with the Super System. It was not that the Super System failed, but his own spirit power was restrained by the strange rule. Even the contact with his mind was blocked. He could not connect with the Super System. He was only left to the most basic physical power.
The fairy dragon was a natural magician, but her body strength was very weak. The element swallowing and spirit power restraint were equivalent to a magic-forbidden territory. It was the same as completely taking away the strongest weapon of the fairy dragon.
Immediately afterward, the distortion of space began to intensify. Even collapse and disorderly faults began to appear. Chen Rui hugged Zola without hesitation and avoided a fault beside her.
Zola only felt a strong masculine breath rushing toward her face. When she reacted, her body was already carried up and rose into the air.
How dare you hug me when I’m conscious?
(By the way, it seems that the last time I was hugged, I also pretended to be unconscious…)
Chen Rui went up and down several times, and he finally avoided the danger. Zola was about to struggle down from his arms and scold him, but she suddenly caught a glimpse of his shoulder. A bloodstain was expanding. The fault area just now was full of terrifying space slicing power. If it isn’t for this man to take me away, I’m afraid I would be cut into pieces…
He is even injured…
Zola felt that her heart suddenly became soft. It seems that this man’s embrace is quite warm. Why didn’t I realize this last time…
(Bah! I should be thinking about this chain of high grade rune. Spirit restraint, element swallowing, and this restraining + destructive space territory…)
Chen Rui didn’t even bother to explore these things. The surrounding space changed more and more drastically. Collapses, cracks, and whirlpools continued to appear. There were horrible death traps everywhere. He was like an unarmed soldier crossing over a minefield. If he did not watch out, he would be completely annihilated.
Isn’t it just an experiment? Why is it so tragic?
It seems that a certain lady even guaranteed my safety previously, but I need to protect this lady now!
What bad luck has been going on recently?
Since I fought with Obsidian and Broc, I have been unlucky. First, I was caught by Zola in the capital. Later, I learned the bad news that the Dark Moon is about to suffer a war disaster. I finally managed to convince Zola to finish the last paragraph. I can leave after I split it, but this damn situation appears now!
Now I can’t use Super System’s skills, teleportation, protective shield, and [Star Gate]. It seems that I can’t escape from this disaster!
No way! I cannot die here!
The Dark Moon is facing a huge crisis now, and Athena and the others are there. I must hurry back as soon as possible!
Although this 20 yuan high grade chain rune has the Demi-God level territory power, it will eventually decline. As long as I persist in this period of time, it will definitely get through it!
After making this determination, Chen Rui put away all the distractions and began to devote all his mind to the strange space full of destruction breath.
After dodging and moving, Chen Rui’s strength had been exerted to the extreme. He avoided danger again and again while hugging Zola, but the injuries on his body were also increasing.
“Let me down.” Zola finally couldn’t help but say again while biting her lip. This was the fourth time.
Without her as a burden, Chen Rui’s chances of surviving alone should be much greater. He should be able to survive the effective time of the restraining space safely.
“Stop chattering!” Chen Rui yelled as he flicked his feet to avoid another danger.
How dare you yell to me like this! Zola gritted her teeth secretly, and she clasped him tightly involuntarily.
Time passed by, but this territory still showed no signs of declining. Instead, it became stronger and stronger. It seemed to have signs of annihilating everything in it.
Under such high-intensity physical and mental pressure, Chen Rui’s movements gradually slowed down. If it weren’t for the passive attributes of his body which were still working, he would have fallen down in exhaustion.
In the state of being on the verge of collapse, Chen Rui’s state of mind seemed to have entered a strange and subtle state. For the first time, there was no assistance from the Super System, [Deep Analysis] and the solar system. There was only a realization completely derived from himself.
This space is not only a restraining force, but also a fatal destruction. It is a very pure destruction.
Chen Rui remembered feeling this kind of “destruction” vaguely somewhere. Yes, the silver box and Shura!
No! Not quite right! If that kind of destruction is like the ocean, the breath of the space in front of me is nothing more than a river.
No immortal existence can escape the destruction rule.
Life and death are originally the simplest and greatest truth in the universe.
Chen Rui suddenly felt a sense of enlightenment. Although the fairy dragon in his arms had lost her power, her vision of the Demon Overlord was still there. She immediately noticed that some subtle changes were taking place in Chen Rui.
The destruction power in this space was getting stronger and stronger. Even if he didn’t set foot in those dangerous areas, the terrifying destruction breath could still destroy the life in it. However, the fairy dragon had a kind of “illusion” that she and Chen Rui were safer than when they were dodging previously.
Chen Rui seems to have been assimilated by this destruction space. No, to be more precise, it is a mysterious breath in him that has assimilated this space.
How is this possible? Although it is just a trace of the Demi-God-level territory’s breath, it still contains a rule that only Demi-God-level can comprehend. This guy only barely reaches the power of Demon Emperor-level at best. How can he tolerate and even go beyond the Demi-God-level rule?
This feeling was getting stronger and stronger. Despite the chaos in the space, the 2 were just like bystanders, witnessing annihilation and death “outside the scene.”
The shaking and annihilating space gradually faded. The scene of the surrounding laboratory was restored. Chen Rui felt a strong exhaustion of spirit and physical strength. His footing was unstable as he slowly sat down on the ground.
Would Zola still let Chen Rui go alone after this disaster? Would she follow him back to the Dark Moon?
