Pamir looked at this strange guy wearing a cloak who exuded the early stage of the Demon Emperor’s breath. He knew that this person must be the cause of the failure. Even the “red light enhancement” magic that had never been seen before was cast by this enemy. He shouted angrily, and a black breath appeared on his fist. It was the royal family talent, [Light of Sin]. Pamir’s strength was also the early stage of the Demon Emperor. He thought that the strength of the 2 sides was equal. As long as he used the advantage of the royal family’s talent to win this person, the enhanced magic of the Red Dragon Legion would definitely disappear. Then it would not be difficult to deal with Francis and others.
Since General Bubowa’s magic circle and the fishing plan has failed, I must at least kill Francis and these people!
The [Light of Sin] had various negative weakening effects, but what made Pamir horrified was that before he had the time to weaken the opponent’s strength, stars suddenly appeared around him. It weakened his strength by nearly half. Following that, a figure had rushed in front of him in a flash. It was the strange enemy whom he thought was “equal in strength”.
“Bang!” Before Pamir had time to react, Chen Rui’s fist had already hit his abdomen. A swirling dent appeared on the tough leather armor, and the corresponding part at the back was pushed back by some air flow. It was as if the punch had penetrated through his abdomen.
Pamir felt that his internal organs seemed to be tumbling. Even if he was strong-willed, he couldn’t help crying out in pain. His whole body staggered back, and the opponent had appeared ghostly behind him. “Boom! Boom! Boom!” The smashing sound was endless. The surrounding soldiers could hardly see the movement. After hearing only the dense sound, Pamir’s body was thrown into the air with a strong force. Then, with a strange [Sonic Boom] sound, the figure had caught up with Pamir’s uncontrollable body at an unimaginable speed. He clasped his fists with both hands at a higher point, and he slammed Pamir’s body that was flying upward.
With these 2 forces, Pamir crashed to the ground like a meteor. A huge pothole appeared on the ground. Pamir’s body was embedded in the soil. Various parts of the leather armor had been distorted. His whole person was as weak as a limp. He no longer had the power to climb up.
For a while, not only the soldiers of the Bloody Empire’s Rage Flame Legion, but even Francis of the Red Dragon Legion, were dumbfounded. The Demon Emperor powerhouse, Pamir of the Mammon Royal Family bloodline, the general who has experienced many battles, is completely defeated in such a short time? Is Pamir weakened?
Francis and Pamir were old rivals who were evenly matched. He clearly knew Pamir’s strength. Pamir did not become weaker at the slightest, but that his opponent is too strong!
If Francis himself confronted Pamir, it would be impossible to tell the outcome for a long time. Now, this unfamiliar comrade who was also in the “early stage of the Demon Emperor”…
In the awe of the surrounding eyes, Chen Rui’s body slowly descended. After getting the epiphany of the law on the 4th floor of the Book Collection Hall and digesting a little bit of the great power given by Satan, not only his territory had a new breakthrough, his combat effectiveness of the normal state was also greatly enhanced. Coupled with the improvement in the [Galaxy Territory] and Mystic Jade Armor, it was indeed a bit unfair to Pamir.
Pamir’s defeat caused the morale of the rest of the soldiers to drop sharply, but most of them still chose to fight to the death. Only a small group of people escaped. The Red Dragon Legion, which turned defeat into victory, cheered.
Chen Rui asked, “General Francis, is your injury okay?”
Francis originally had some doubts about this unfamiliar comrade holding the Lion Tooth Sword, but at this time it was replaced by admiration. He seemed guilty, “I’m fine, but this time, my plan to set an ambush was outsmarting myself. I lost many brothers. I really feel ashamed to go back to face General George .”
“What I want to ask is whether you still have the power to continue fighting?”
There was a strange light in Francis’s eyes, “You mean…”
Chen Rui smiled slightly, “I have a spontaneous plan. Isn’t your purpose today to ambush the opponent’s leader? Madam Gloria on the other side should have attracted the opponent’s main force now. Do you dare to change your ambush plan to a long-range raid?”
“Right, we can unexpectedly attack the opponent while they are unprepared! These defeated soldiers will definitely flee to their temporary contact point, and the enemy will never think that we, the remnants, have such guts!”
Francis was obviously a general who was also proficient in military strategy. He immediately understood the meaning at the slight mention of it. He looked at the soldiers around him who were eager to try. He saluted Chen Rui, “I’m willing to follow after you, Lion Tooth Sword bearer. Before we set off, I would like to know what I should call the leader who will lead us to complete this surprise raid?”
“General doesn’t need to be polite, I’m just an anonymous ‘military supplies officer’.” Chen Rui was also worthy of the title of the “military supplies officer”. The money he supplied for the military needs was actually “scammed” from Obsidian.
Francis knew that Chen Rui did not want to reveal his name, but this powerhouse who could hold the Lion Tooth Sword was definitely the most trusted person by General George. He immediately stopped asking questions and took out the magic shackles to imprison Pamir. He quickly selected more than 100 soldiers who were in the best physical condition while the rest escorted Pamir back to the Warlock Fortress.
The soldiers that Francis led this time were all the Red Dragon Legion’s elites. After taking the recovery potion, the remaining soldiers recovered a lot. Under the leadership of Chen Rui and Francis, they secretly caught up with those defeated Rage Flames Legion soldiers.
The Rage Flame Legion soldiers fled all the way and left Weiju Valley. About 2 hours later, they came to the Sabok Lake.
There was a hillside there. There were hundreds of large tents on the hillside. It seemed like the temporary base of the “bandits”. The Warlock Fortress faced the Iron Fist Estate of the Bloody Empire. There was no independent fortress that stood against it. It also meant that the Bloody Empire army had no fixed defensive points. Although it was relatively weak in terms of supply, it was quite mobile, and it was not an official large-scale war now. The Rage Flame Legion’s elite of the Bloody Empire, led by Bubowa, changed to another place after fighting in one place which was resembling a guerrilla style. This gave George’s Red Dragon Legion a headache. That was why Francis deliberately set up an ambush in order to try to trap the opponent’s elite, but he was seen through and almost lost all his soldiers.
“This should be the enemy’s base camp, but the manpower we brought is not enough.” Francis looked at them from a distance, and he roughly estimated the strength of both sides.
Chen Rui thought for a while, “I will go in first to attract the enemy’s attention, then you act accordingly at the side.”
Francis frowned and said, “Although your strength is strong, the situation of the enemy is unknown now. I’m afraid that it is dangerous to rush in.”
“According to the intel I got, Gustav, the legion leader of the Rage Flame Legion, is currently in the Bloodfall capital. He is not in the front line, so…” Chen Rui didn’t say anything. He just smiled confidently.
“So?” Francis added puzzledly.
“So, let’s do it.” Chen Rui stood up, “But before that, I must first prepare.”
In the base camp on the hillside of Sabok Lake.
Bubowa, the deputy legion leader of the Rage Flame Legion, was listening carefully to the report of the defeated army, “That person controlled the demonic beasts and broke my magic circle? He saved Francis and captured General Pamir?”
“Gloria is now marching east with a great fanfare. Are you sure that the man is not George himself? Other enemies who are capable of rescuing should not be able to participate,” Mecek, the military staff officer on the side frowned, “A person who can capture Pamir, when did the Red Dragon Legion have such a powerful enemy?”
Bubowa’s expression also appeared very solemn, “It seems that we overlooked a strong opponent. From this point of view, Gloria’s rescue was just a bluff. No wonder there is such a big fanfare. They have not entered our ambush circle yet. It’s my mistake, I shouldn’t transfer the Flying Squadrons away. I think we have only one way now which is to trap Gloria with all our strength. This woman is a bit impatient. If we make good use of this, it may be the only way to return to turn the tables. However, since she is bluffing, she will definitely not rush forward. When necessary, Mecek…”
Mecek nodded, “I understand. I will act as a bait myself.”
At this moment, the expression of Bubowa and Mecek changed at the same time. Both of them were of Demon Emperor level strength, and they had sensed an extremely violent breath nearby.
A few seconds later, the soldiers began to scream outside the camp. Bubowa and Mecek rushed out and saw a person floating in the air. The man’s whole body was wrapped in a cloak, but it could not hide his terrifying ferocity. The arrows fired by the soldiers below had already turned to ashes in the air before they even touched the man.
Pamir’s defeated soldier exclaimed, “General, he… It’s him!”
Bubowa’s pupils shrank. I didn’t expect the other party to be so bold. After saving Francis and capturing Pamir, he actually launched a counterattack without stopping!
The person in the air slowly landed. A cold voice sounded, “Bubowa… die!”
“How dare you?!” When Mecek saw that the other party was still so arrogant in his own base camp, he raised his hand, and a large number of flaming meteors appeared in the sky. They smashed down one after another. The ground was shaking. There were dozens more huge holes with burning flames in the center. The man seemed to have been smashed into shattered coke by the meteor fire shower.
“Be careful!” Bubowa’s voice suddenly sounded. Mecek reacted extremely quickly. With a tap on his feet, he flew toward Bubowa’s voice. At the same time, his hand raised and launched another great magic, [Flame of Hell]. There was no need to chant. He had mastered Samael Royal Family’s mutated talent, [Fire Mastery], to its extreme.
The confidence on Mecek’s face quickly turned into horror as he saw the figure walking toward him from the sea of fire. The man seemed like he was walking leisurely in the garden. There seemed to be a strange force field around him that distorted the space. The horrifying high temperature and flame power of [Flame of Hell] were assimilated and absorbed by this force field, and it became another rampaging breath.
Mecek felt that the opponent was approaching step by step, and he seemed to have lost the courage to resist or even escape. It was as if he was in some kind of nightmare which he was unable to get rid of. When he was struggling desperately, he heard Bubowa’s scream. At the same time, the flames were fervent and the man’s figure flickered. Mecek felt that the power of the “nightmare” had been weakened a lot. He desperately unleashed his spirit power and finally broke free from the terrifying feeling. Only then did he discover that Bubowa had already activated the territory power to fight the enemy.
Bubowa’s [Flame Territory] seemed to be firmly suppressed by the opponent’s strange territory. If it weren’t for Mecek who activated the fire magic to assist, it would have been a complete loss. Even when the 2 of them teamed up, they were still in a disadvantage and were in a dangerous situation several times.
When Mecek was anxious, he heard a commotion from the soldiers. It turned out that the military tents were all caught on fire at some point of time. There was also the sound of fighting in the midst of the thick smoke. They didn’t know how many ambush soldiers there were.
With this distraction, Mecek felt a sharp qi close to his body. Fortunately, Bubowa pulled him immediately. His body dodged in time. He felt his left arm was light, and his elbow was actually cut off. Blood spurted out suddenly like he was cut by an extremely sharp weapon.
When Mecek screamed, Bubowa made a decisive decision. He withstood a heavy punch forcefully and borrowed the force to fly out with Mecek. At the same time, there was a scroll in his hand.
Bubowa vomited a mouthful of blood on the scroll, and it shone in blue light. In the blink of an eye, he and Mecek disappeared at the same time.
Scrolls were used quite frequently in the human world, but it was very rare in the Demon Realm due to material limitations. Besides, the magic power and success rate of the scroll seals would be discounted. Especially this kind of teleportation magic, if it was not for the low interference of the surrounding magic in the wilderness, it was very likely that there would be a chance of failure like when Chen Rui was using Dark Will.
Although the soldiers of the Bloody Empire fought bravely, they suddenly fell into chaos when they lost their leader. They were in disorder due to the deadly onslaught led by Francis. They finally began to retreat.
“General Francis, it’s almost time. Let’s go back!”
This voice made Francis stop chasing immediately. At this time, Francis and the soldiers looked at Chen Rui not only in respect, but also in awe. This sir who was holding General George’s Lion Tooth Sword was wise and brave. He miraculously led the defeated troops to do a major comeback successfully by defeating the enemy.
Especially Francis who had clearly felt Bubowa’s level of strength just now. It should be the powerhouse of the peak stage of the Demon Emperor. Mecek was also the intermediate stage of the Demon Emperor, and this comrade who called himself the “military supplies officer” fought the 2 opponents alone. He even cut off Mecek’s arm. If Bubowa didn’t escape with his secret technique, perhaps both of them would have been “held” there.
In fact, Chen Rui still held back his power. He didn’t really intend to kill. The Fallen Angel Empire and the Bloody Empire were friendly allies on the surface after all. This conflict was more like a small-scale game or even military training. If it was just an individual casualties like a lieutenant or a team leader, it was all right. The more powerful one would have the say. Both sides would tacitly swallow the bitter pill. However, this tacit understanding also had a limit. For example, Bubowa’s current status as the deputy legion leader of the Rage Flame Legion had exceeded the limit. Once the situation escalated, it was likely to trigger greater military operations and even war. At present, the overall combat power and empire strength of the Fallen Angel Empire were not the opponents of the Bloody Empire. They belonged to the weaker side, So they must be tolerant and not let the conflict evolve into a real war. General George had specifically advised him before he came.
However, this battle effectively crushed the Bloody Empire’s arrogance. Bubowa would most probably pay close attention to this mysterious enemy who caused him a great setback, and he would not act rashly for a long time.
Chen Rui’s gains this time were not limited to this. When fighting the 2 Demon Emperor level enemies, he not only used [Scorching Dragon Possession], but he also used a new kind of territory that he learned through the basic law, [Summer Territory].
Could it be that his territory has four seasons?
