The wilderness of the Town Leith.
On the ground, 2 troops were fighting dauntlessly.
Everyone could hardly hear any other sound. There were only each other’s enemies in the bloody sight. The individual strength of ordinary soldiers was insignificant in this kind of war, but when the individual was integrated into a huge collective group, their momentum and actions would give rise to a feeling of invincibility. This was morale.
Although the Red Spirit’s strength and combat strength gradually manifested over time, the Dark Moon continued to fight persistently with this brave morale.
In the air, besides the howling wyverns, four wisps of smoke-like shadows were constantly teleporting, colliding, and changing forms.
A cold sweat broke out on Josh’s face. The strength of this cloaked man is obviously just at the early stage of the Demon Emperor, but I, who is at the intermediate stage of the Demon Emperor, am restrained tightly. I have powerful compound magic, but I cannot maximize its power. Moreover, if I am slightly distracted, the opponent can kill me with a blow.
Who is this guy? Why does he want to help Shea? There seems to be some strange entanglement between him and Shea just now…
In any case, this dangerous enemy must be killed today. Otherwise, I’m afraid that this sure-win war will be unbelievably reversed.
Josh yelled out loud. His voice overwhelmed the noisy clamor of the entire battlefield. Several blue runes surrounded by flames violently jumped. Amid the white mist, a thrilling coldness dispersed rapidly in all directions.
With Josh as the center, the soldiers of both sides who were within 100 meters were instantly frozen into ice sculptures, and the soldiers nearby fled. No one dared to approach this area.
Chen Rui did not act rashly. He calmly watched Josh in the white mist. He had already seen this kind of magic territory with the combination of water and wind elements when he was disguised as “Charles” previously. However, it was obvious that Josh only launched a little power at that time to test him; he didn’t really launch the killing move. Josh was already going all out now.
When the several blue runes burst together, the battlefield disappeared. Chen Rui’s vision appeared in a snowy space filled with wind, snow and mist.
Josh’s figure disappeared, but a large group of huge figures loomed in the white fog. When Chen Rui looked closely, they were a group of hideous demonic beasts. Their 2-meter body was very strong. Their claws were sharp, and they had wings. Their bodies shone with a faint crystal light as if they were formed by some kind of ice and snow crystals. They rushed toward Chen Rui.
Chen Rui punched, and he hit the beast at the front. A large area of cracks appeared on the demonic beast’s body. Half of its body was shattered, but it was still waving its paws like it was never hit. It did not seem to feel any pain.
Chen Rui frowned, and he punched again. He completely turned the demonic beasts into powder. He opened his hand, and he fired a huge [Aurora Shot]. With his current strength, the power of the [Aurora Shot] had been improved. Coupled with the enhanced power characteristics of [Dual Training], wherever the [Aurora Shot] passed, the demonic beasts were destroyed upon contact. Soon, this group of strange demonic beasts was completely wiped out.
However, the demonic beasts in the white mist began to appear again as if they were inexhaustible. If this went on, even if Chen Rui’s endurance was strong, he would exhaust his strength eventually.
Chen Rui only attacked to test just now. This time, he didn’t fight with the ice beasts. His figures appeared here and there, constantly dodging the attacks of the demonic beasts. Suddenly, his hands formed a blade form, and he slashed toward the white mist on the side.
The white mist was originally an intangible thing. When it was cut by his blade, it actually made a substantial cracking sound. Josh’s surprised voice sounded, “How do you know I’m here?!”
“You used those ice beasts to attract my attention just now, but you have been changing directions to attempt a sneak attack…” Chen Rui sneered. He did not say anything more, and he slashed with his [Aura Blade] once again.
Josh’s figure was looming in the white mist, and a strange mark appeared on the center of his eyebrows. It emitted many strands of white mist. The slash split his body into 2, but there was no sign of blood or injury. Instead, he quickly combined into a complete physical form again.
His intangible state was a bit similar to Broc’s [Incubus Territory], but Chen Rui instinctively felt that Josh’s mystery was different.
“A very powerful secret technique attack. It can even destroy my soul power. Unfortunately, my power is endless in this territory, including my soul power.”
Josh waved his hand, and a thundercloud storm struck toward Chen Rui. Chen Rui launched [Sonic Boom] of the [Flying] skill. His floating figure suddenly accelerated and avoided the storm, but he fell into the besiege of the ice beasts.
Chen Rui frowned. He defeated the demonic beasts that were approaching. At the same time, a white light shone brightly in his hand. He fired continuous [Aurora Shots] toward Josh.
Josh didn’t dodge it. The light imprinted in the middle of his eyebrows luminated brightly as if he was planning to perish together. Countless of terrifying [Thunder] with crystal sparks hit toward Chen Rui.
The [Aurora Shot] hit Josh, and his body suddenly fell apart, but he recombined again like he was unharmed. Chen Rui could no longer avoid the [Thunder]. He was struck straight, and he suddenly flew out.
Josh succeeded with a blow. He felt that the winning ticket was in his hand, so he laughed triumphantly, “I’m immortal in here. You have no chance of winning…”
Before he finished speaking, his voice stopped abruptly. He saw the enemy stabilized his inverted figure as he stretched his neck without any injury. Chen Rui shook the remaining sparks in his hands as if the powerful [Thunder] attack just now was just a mere lighting magic.
Josh couldn’t believe his eyes. This man in the cloak is obviously weaker than me. It’s just that his strange talent and secret skills put me in a passive situation previously. However, it’s not outside now. Instead, it’s my [Icy Snow Territory]!
In this territory, he was directly struck by my strongest compound magic, [Ice Thunder Flash], but he is totally fine!
Chen Rui had fought with Josh before, so he knew that his opponent was proficient in the 2 elements of water and wind. He had earlier prepared anti-wind and anti-water element equipment under the cover of his cloak. Plus his own [Anti-Magic] characteristics, he was really “bullying” Josh.
Moreover, after the strongest Demon Overlord level [Thunder] technique’s “baptism” from the fairy dragon, Josh’s attack of this level was just drizzle.
However, Chen Rui couldn’t crack the opponent’s territory at that moment, especially the special characteristics of splitting and recombining. Josh’s so-called “immortality” did not seem like bragging.
Chen Rui once realized a trace of basic law in the space of the Demi-God territory, so his understanding of territory had reached an unprecedented height. It was even beyond some Demon Overlords.
Everything in the world was a masterpiece of nature. It could be said to be perfect, but it was not the flawless kind of perfect. The same was true for territory.
Territory power was actually the power of nature and the world. Any territory was a perfect work of art, but they all had flaws. The so-called “flawless” was contrary to nature. That was a flaw itself.
I must find out the flaw in this territory! Just when Chen Rui’s mind was highly concentrated, the [Analysis] of the [True Analytical Eyes] began to gleam. The surrounding territory became another kind of sight. Josh, the ice beasts, and white mist all became translucent with outlines. There was also a layer of strange objects that were constantly changing. Judging from the fluctuations and changes, they should be invisible energy forms.
This was like an analysis chart of some kind of instrument, and it was three-dimensional.
Chen Rui encountered this situation for the first time since the five-star evolution. It turns out that [Analysis] is the ultimate mystery of the [True Analytical Eyes]!
He dodged the attack of Josh and the ice beasts while feeling the brand new [Analytical Eyes]. Unfortunately, this focused state seemed to consume a huge amount of spiritual power, and it couldn’t last. Soon, the normal display was restored.
Although it was not maintained for a long time, Chen Rui had a clear understanding of Josh’s “immortality” secret in the territory. It turned out to be a magic skill similar to countless mirrors. In fact, he couldn’t really be reborn, but the [Mirror Image] was recovered. It was different from Sabrina’s [Clone Territory].
The most straightforward way was to destroy all the [Mirror Images], but that kind of “mirror” had a lot of layers. Besides, it could automatically recover. With the power of [Aura Blade] and [Aurora Shot], perhaps it would not be possible to destroy all of them in a short time.
Chen Rui didn’t want to delay too much time because this place was not his only battlefield. In the Blue Lake Mountain Range, the poison dragon with the Demon Emperor’s peak strength was still fighting against the Demon Overlord emerald dragon alone.
The fight on the battlefield was still intensive. The battlefield between Shea and Rus had changed from the air to the ground.
“Ding!” Shea blocked a sword attack, and she involuntarily stepped back. The armor on her right shoulder was torn apart and blood was flowing out. Rus was about to chase her when a strange spiritual impact suddenly came in his mind. He had a severe headache suddenly.
At the same time, a figure wearing a cloak and a mask appeared behind him. The 2 blue lights in his hand quickly swirled toward Rus.
With a roar, Rus beared the pain and waved the greatsword backwards. A strong energy wave smashed several innocent soldiers in the distance. However, the figure holding the blue light was already prepared, so he dodged at an incredible speed.
Rus was infuriated- This is not the first time. If it wasn’t because this insidious guy suddenly appeared, with my strength, I would have taken down Shea long ago.
Although Rus only awakened 2 bloodline talents, [Dark Flame] and [Holy Wings], which were less than Shea’s [Heart of Light and Dark], his experience and combat power were far better than Shea. She was just a “rookie” who had just been promoted to the Demon Emperor.
Shea seized the chance and stood firm. With a clear chirp, the long sword gleamed sharply. She slashed toward the ground. The ground shook violently, and then the whole place was shaking. The ground around Rus was erupting like volcanoes. Countless white rays broke out of the ground. Rus finally dispelled the influence of the spiritual impact. He immediately felt the crisis, and he parried with his sword. A strange arc of light blocked the numerous rays, but the black armor on his body still couldn’t bear the strong impact. Cracks had begun to appear.
At this moment, Rus, Shea, and the mysterious man holding dual blades all sensed something different in the battlefield in the air. They all looked up simultaneously.
The territory filled with white mist and cold aura was shining like stars at first, then suddenly a strange color appeared – Red.
The fierce, manic destruction breath contained in this red color, even Shea and Rus, who possessed the strongest destruction flame of the Demon Realm, [Dark Flame], couldn’t help but to be stunned. The white mist territory began to twist continuously just like the water of a lake being stirred up by a giant dragon. In the midst of the shake, it unexpectedly boiled.
It seemed that something exploded, and the white mist dispersed all over. A figure fell from mid-air like a broken kite. Rus’s facial expression suddenly changed. This person… is Josh.
Josh’s breath of life had dropped to his lowest point. The armor on his body was horribly twisted and damaged. Shocking scars were faintly visible. There was only one look in the eyes of the Red Spirit Lord – Fear.
A middle stage Demon Emperor was actually defeated by an early stage Demon Emperor, and he was completely defeated- Josh’s strongest territory was completely and directly torn by that indescribable terrifying force. It was an utter defeat!
The extremely weak Josh’s vision gradually dimmed. He seemed to vaguely see Kanita’s figure approaching.
Josh was actually defeated! Rus in the air showed an unbelievable look. As soon as he reacted, a red light in the white mist had rushed toward him at an unimaginable speed.
Rus instinctively swung his sword. There was a clear sound. The greatsword in his hand was broken into 2 segments. Rus himself was also dumbfounded by a terrifying force. In shock, 2 pairs of black wings immediately appeared behind him. With the help of the inertia, he fled into the air.
This kind of power is so terrifying that even Josh was defeated. I am definitely not his match! In any case, I should run for my life first!
The strange sound of [Sonic Boom] sounded. The red light-wrapped figure instantly caught up with Rus in the air. There was only a flash of light, and Rus’ head had fallen off. His body was still flying in the air because of the speed. It only dropped to the ground after a while.
“Josh and Rus are dead! The Red Spirit who surrenders will not be killed!” The powerful voice resounded throughout the battlefield.
Shea looked at the man wearing a strange mask in the air wrapped in red destruction flames. He held the enemy’s head high with an overwhelming Demon God-like demeanour. Suddenly, there was a strange throb in her heart.
She was not fearful, but throbbing instead.
Is it really him?
He… also has such a strong and brave side?
The Red Spirit army suddenly panicked. Where is sir lord? Is he really defeated? That head…
At this time, Kanita had found Josh who fell to the ground, and he shouted, “Sir lord is seriously injured! The capital envoy is dead! Retreat quickly!”
This shouting further aggravated the situation. Even sir lord was defeated! Without a leader, the Red Spirit army was not in the right mind to fight. In an instant, the soldiers were defeated like a collapsed mountain.
Chen Rui slowly landed on the ground, and he threw Rus’ head on the ground. The gaze behind the mask glanced at Shea’s complicated gaze, and he said, “I must go to another place right now. Krobelus, the biggest enemy this time, is there. If I can come back alive, you will know the entire truth.”
It turns out that he held back Krobelus with some sort of strategy! Shea was shocked. He even wants to deal with that terrifying enemy of the Demon Overlord level?
In fact, Shea really wanted to go with him, but she knew that she couldn’t be a burden to him. Furthermore, as the commander, she must stay to chase down the defeated soldiers and preside over the overall situation.
“Don’t forget your promise.” Shea glanced at him deeply without saying anything more. She flew toward the Dark Moon’s army.
Chen Rui understood in his heart that the so-called promise was to “wait for her in a place that only she knows”, so that she could understand everything.
Of course, he must come back alive first.
She didn’t say this sentence, but he and she understood it.
“All army, pursue! Do not kill those who surrender!” Shea’s grim voice resounded across the battlefield. The Dark Moon army was full of momentum under her command. Many Red Spirit soldiers dropped their weapons and surrendered.
After the baptism of this war, not only the quality of the Dark Moon army, even Shea’s own strength and command ability had reached a new level.
“It’s not fair! Another…” The man in the cloak who helped Shea deal with Rus just now shook his head as he said in a sighing tone.
“I said, jealousy is not a virtue. Anyway, a poor left eye of Demon God has been stared firmly by the right eye, but I have no time to accept your worship now. I’m going to help that dead duck dragon.” Chen Rui grinned, and he made a long whistling sound. Wyvern King Gade, who was initially carrying wyvern legion commander Kaguron in the air, suddenly shook its body and threw Kaguron off.
There was no warning. Kaguron was shocked, but fortunately, he also had Demon King’s peak strength, so he launched [Teleportation] and landed safely.
The Wyvern King flew straight toward Chen Rui. Chen Rui soared into the air, and he landed on Wyvern King’s back. He flew south at full speed.
Could he deal with the emerald dragon without fighting? Maybe with carrot and stick?
