Azgalor lived in a low-key hotel on the outskirts of the city, quietly waiting for the news from the human financial officer. Judging from the intel provided by Kia and the Dark Moon, this human is quite significant to Shea. He should be able to play a positive role in this matter.
Whether it is Aleus, the eldest prince of the Bloody Empire, or the Red Leaf Chamber of Commerce, Shea should have no reason to refuse directly. At least she will summon me to discuss the specific conditions. Judging from the current situation of the Dark Moon, this matter is quite certain.
I just need to make good use of Shea’s eagerness to fight against the capital and even regain the throne. Coupled with my puppet secret skills, it is not difficult to control the Dark Moon. Back then, my brother, Glorfin, rebelled against the Dark Moon, but the Lord of Midnight Sun personally led the army. He disappeared when his army was defeated. The current Fallen Angel Empire is not what it used to be. As long as I can control the Dark Moon as a springboard, and subvert the Fallen Angel Empire step by step, then the glory of the Beelzebub Royal Family will once again descend on this piece of land that once belonged to the Gluttony Royal Family.
As long as I control enough strength, I can gradually get rid of or even destroy Bloodfall… I, Azgalor, am not a character who is controlled by people!
The only pity is that I didn’t get the strongest artifact, God-Eating Mask, of the Beelzebub Royal Family from “Arthur” last time. I lost the Crystal Valley, my hard-earned land, in vain. I even sacrificed my 2 wives and 1 daughter.
However, whether it is women or a child, it is not something that I cannot give up when I am gaining power. Sometimes they are even a burden. As long as I can accomplish my matters and control the power, I will have plenty of these.
However, the woman who fought with 3 peak stage of Demon Overlords on her own is really terrifying. She actually defeated the joint forces of me, Manu and Jacob. In the end, Manu died due to serious injury. Before I get the God-Eating Mask, I never want to face this woman again.
2 days later, the human financial officer finally arrived at the hotel. Unlike what he had imagined, the human’s expression was strangely solemn.
“Sir Galor, I’m very sorry to tell you that things often develop beyond our imagination.”
“Sir is saying that… Princess Royal is not interested in the cooperation with the Red Leaf Chamber of Commerce?” This news was really beyond Azgalor’s expectation, and he was suddenly full of doubts. Shea doesn’t even want to see me? Or this human financial officer did something in it between? Or maybe he wants more bribes?
“It’s hard to tell you everything in a few words. I have already taken a big risk by coming here today. It was completely out of Kia’s plea.” Chen Rui took out a space ring. It was the “gift” that Azgalor had previously given him to thank him for introducing, “I better return this ring to Sir Galor. Sir better leave the Dark Moon as soon as possible.”
Azgalor was really taken aback. He returned the ring again, and he added another ring after thinking about it, “I came with true sincerity this time. If I go back like this, I’m afraid it will be difficult to explain. Please tell me the reason, sir.”
Chen Rui showed hesitation, and he finally accepted the 2 rings, “There are many things that I never knew previously. It was only when I tried to seize the opportunity for sir in front of the Princess Royal yesterday that I learned some insider information. Sir should have heard of the war of lords not long ago? The reason the Dark Moon could defeat the Red Spirit Estate and wipe out the Blue Lava Estate is due to the support of some kind of force. This force is very powerful. It does not allow any external forces to interfere with the Dark Moon… I can only say this much. You are Kia’s father. For Kia’s sake, you should leave here quickly. Otherwise I can’t guarantee sir’s safety.”
Azgalor frowned. The insider information that this human revealed is worth looking into. Analysing from the previous intel, the Dark Moon does not have the power to defeat the 2 estates, but they suddenly won the victory with great power now. It almost surprised everyone. The mysterious powerhouse that defeated Josh and killed Rus, and the mysterious force that killed the Blue Lava Army silently without mobilizing the Dark Moon’s local forces are all mysteries.
Now that the human said that there is a powerful force behind the Dark Moon that is supporting it, it makes sense. The question is, what is the origin of this mysterious force? It actually ‘conquered’ the Dark Moon first!?
“Sir Galor, I can’t stay here. I’ll have to leave first.” After speaking, Chen Rui left hastily without giving Azgalor a chance to consider it.
Azgalor thought suspiciously for a while. No matter what, it is impossible to give up after only a few words from the human. What he said is not necessarily true; seeing is believing. Later, I better go to the Dark Moon palace once to spy.
It’s a pity that without the God-Eating Mask, my puppet skill is still flawed. It is easy to be seen through. Otherwise, as long as Shea’s mind is controlled, the rest will be easy to handle.
Just after Azgalor made up his mind, the spy in the Dark Moon sent a note with only 1 strange mark on it. This was a mark unique to Bloodfall, representing 1 word- “Danger”.
Azgalor frowned more tightly. This note should be written by Kia. Although the [Soul Shackles] on this “daughter” disappeared because of Sabrina’s death, Kia did not know the news of Sabrina’s death, let alone the death of her birth mother, Freya. In order to better control this daughter, during the secret contact with Kia these 2 days, Azgalor only said that Sabrina unlocked her shackles. Kia naturally also showed gratitude in cooperation, but she was very clear in her heart.
Since even Kia had sent a warning message, it seemed that what the human said just now was not an exaggeration, but Azgalor didn’t think anyone in the Dark Moon could do anything to him as he was at the peak stage of Demon Overlord. Out of caution, Azgalor left the hotel calmly. On the surface, he was going out of the city, but in fact he was going around. Finally, he transformed his face, and he appeared in the Dark Moon palace.
At this time, the night had come, and the 2 moons turned purple. Azgalor’s figure appeared creepily in the corner of the palace’s inner courtyard. It was as if he was blending with the surrounding environment, even the guards passing by nearby were unaware of him.
As the Beelzebub Royal Family who started the rebellion and once occupied the Dark Moon, Azgalor was no stranger to the palace. After a few turns, he went directly to the inner courtyard.
In the council hall, the light of the magic lamp was on. Azgalor had a sharp vision, he vaguely saw a woman’s figure standing inside.
He teleported and appeared silently behind a pillar in the council hall. The woman who was wearing a white robe did not notice him at all. Her back was facing him. There was no other person by her side. It seemed that the one who could stand here and think was definitely Princess Royal Shea.
Just as Azgalor was about to take some action, he suddenly had a sense of crisis instinctively. It was as if he was targeted by some terrifying power, and the source of this power was actually “Shea” with her back facing him.
“Shea” slowly turned around. It was a woman with a veil on her face. The 2 eyes behind the veil looked at Azgalor’s hiding place like laser rays. Azgalor was in a trance for a moment as if her gaze penetrated the pillar and shot directly into his eye socket. He suddenly felt a painful sensation.
She actually has such a mysterious power!
Before fighting, Azgalor already felt the terrifying strength of the opponent, and he was secretly shocked. When does the Dark Moon have such a powerhouse! Could it be everything the human said is true? What is the origin of the force supporting or controlling the Dark Moon?
Azgalor knew that he was not confident in defeating this woman alone, not to mention that the other party must also have more arrangements. At the moment of a thought, he jumped up without hesitation, and he disappeared from the council hall in the blink of an eye. He appeared in the air, flying outward.
Although he decisively left at full speed, the uneasy sense of crisis in his heart did not diminish, but it became stronger and stronger instead.
At this moment, Azgalor’s stature suddenly stagnated in the air. He seemed to be blocked by some intangible barrier. At this moment of delay, the figure of the woman in white already appeared behind him.
Somewhere in the palace below, Chen Rui, Paglio, Krobelus, and Roman were watching the 2 figures in the sky.
“It has begun,” said Chen Rui. He was the one who activated the magic enchantment that had been set a long time ago to block Azgalor. This created the best opportunity for Isis.
Azgalor reacted very quickly. A blood-red lightning appeared on his body, making a buzzing sound. When he suddenly turned around, a huge dark yellow stone flower flew toward the woman. It was the single powerful earth magic, “Death Stone Flower”. However, when the woman raised one of her hands lightly, the stone flower disappeared without a trace, just like a snowball facing a fire, before it could explode.
“[Element Weakening]!” Azgalor immediately recognized the bloodline talent skill of the Lust Royal Family. [Element Weakening] was the nemesis of all magic powers.
The woman didn’t speak, and she pushed her palm toward the air. Her seemingly gentle movements actually drove a tide-like force. This power was beyond Azgalor’s expectation. He blocked with his bloody lightning power hand, but he actually couldn’t resist the vast power. His body involuntarily flew backward. It was unknown whether this woman was intentional, this power actually cracked the barrier.
Although it was only a swift close combat, Azgalor had already judged that the opponent’s power was slightly above him. Besides, there must be other ambushes here. He could not deal with it, so he immediately took advantage of the opponent’s great strength to fly back with all his strength.
The 2 figures moved extremely fast. They instantly turned into 2 small black dots which were almost not visible under the moonlight.
“It seems she doesn’t want us to see the battle,” Roman interjected.
“How can I miss this battle of powerhouses?” As soon as Krobelus had just finished speaking, she had disappeared with Paglio.
“Wait for me!” Seeing that Chen Rui had also disappeared, Roman hurriedly called out and activated the [Flash] talent with all his strength to chase after the direction where the black shadows disappeared in the air.
Chen Rui used the power of Stridebug and Thunderous Sound to dash for a distance. After a while, he left the Dark Moon City and chased all the way to the north. He saw strange flames and explosion sounds in the distant air. “Isis” had caught up with Azgalor, and they were fighting fiercely.
The horror in Azgalor’s heart at this time had reached its maximum. Previously, he thought that the strength of this lady from Asmodeus Royal Family was only slightly higher than him. With his rich combat experience, the outcome of an individual battle was still unknown. Now that they really fought against each other, he knew that the strength of the opponent was far above his expectation. If he didn’t go all out on his power, perhaps he would be in a great danger!
Azgalor yelled and launched his territory power. Isis felt that her vision changed. The sky was full of flying demonic flies like a gray screen covering the sky. Even the color of the 2 purple moons had faded.
When Isis punched in the air toward Azgalor, Azgalor’s body suddenly split. His body also turned into countless demonic flies. They flew toward her overwhelmingly, instantly surrounding Isis.
Isis waved her hand, and a circle of light flew toward the demonic flies. The demonic flies were dispersed around by the light. However, they seemed to have a powerful devouring force as they swallowed the light in the blink of an eye. Isis frowned slightly. She opened her palms, and nearly thousands of demonic flies were frozen in the air. When she abruptly shook her bare hands, the frozen demonic flies exploded and turned into powder.
However, the demonic flies that turned into powder did not actually die, but they scattered to become more demonic flies instead. They seemed to be immortal, and they could also swallow energy endlessly with almost no flaws.
The woman snorted coldly, and the dense demonic flies nearby suddenly ignited inexplicably. The flame was black. It was filled with an extremely powerful vitality.
However, this kind of vitality was the most terrifying poison for the demonic flies that could devour everything. The demonic flies in the flames made an eerie “sizzling” sound. They actually turned into ashes which dissipated. They could no longer regroup into the form of a demonic fly.
The scattered ashes reintegrated into Azgalor’s figure, but his complexion was extremely pale. He was obviously severely injured. He gritted his teeth and waved his hand. The remaining tens of thousands of demonic flies turned into red rays and charged toward Isis from all directions. Suddenly, there were continuous explosion sounds.
The successive explosion sounds gradually subsided. The graceful figure in the sky was still floating in the air, but there were extra 4 golden figures around her .
Azgalor did not hesitate to use up his aura just now to burst his territory, but it was completely blocked by these 4 golden figures, and the woman in white was unscathed.
Azgalor’s heart trembled as if he had seen the most terrifying thing.
Gold class [War Puppet]!
4 of them!
Also… they are very familiar.
Last time, he also fought with these 4 golden puppets in the Crystal Valley. With 1 against 4, he was at absolute disadvantage, but he managed to escape from the hands of these 4 puppets after fighting desperately.
Azgalor’s heart trembled, and he had goosebumps— It is actually her!
The woman I feared most!
It’s true that what you fear most will manifest!
It turns out that the one who secretly controlls the Dark Moon is actually the Dark Shadow Empire!
Azgalor reminiscened the scene where a certain graceful woman fought against 3 enemies long ago. Even if he was determined, fear was inevitable. I can’t even beat these 4 puppets, let alone the most terrifying woman in the Demon Realm!
Only now he regretted that instead of escaping from the Dark Moon quickly, he took the initiative to go to the palace.
Just when Azgalor’s fighting spirit was greatly reduced and he wanted to flee desperately, the scene changed suddenly. It had become an ocean of black flames, and the 4 golden figures had surrounded him.
Chen Rui and others in the distance saw that the gray screen in the sky suddenly turned into a sea of black flames. There was faint distortion and turbulence in it. After a while, the sea of flames disappeared without a trace. They only ambiguously saw a graceful figure standing in the air. A strong body was floating in front of her. He seemed to have completely lost the ability to resist.
Behind the veil, the woman’s star-like eyes glanced lightly at the direction of the crowd watching the battle, then she instantly disappeared with the captive man.
He even planned to be on top of the Bloodfall 🤣. Couldn’t even defeat his nemesis on the second encounter 🥱
