“It’s your turn.” Chen Rui glanced back at Loki who exuded cold breath all over his body, and he walked over step by step.
The quick-kill of Calder made Loki no longer dare to underestimate this “Aguile”. An early stage of the Demon Emperor? What a joke! This idiotic Calder actually provided me the wrong intel. He deserved to be killed!
But Loki was not fearful at all. Chen Rui’s instant kill just now was more of a surprise. Loki’s strength was accumulated from experiences of countless deadly battles. He became stronger when facing against the stronger one. The combined record of defeating 2 peak stages of Demon Emperor mentioned by Calder earlier was by no means an exaggeration.
As long as this Aguile is not a Demon Overlord, it is possible to win!
Loki’s fighting spirit was booming. His power suddenly burst out as he punched. This powerful punch contained a strong chill. Even the ground was covered with frost.
However, this punch stopped before it hit Chen Rui. In front of the fist was a palm covered with armor. This punch was actually controlled by the power of this palm. No matter how Loki burst his power, he was unable to advance for an inch. Chen Rui’s wrist flicked, and Loki was knocked back with a strong force. He turned a somersault in the air. Finally, he gathered his strength and stabilized his body on the ground without falling.
Loki looked at his arm in horror. It had actually frozen. This was because his power was completely suppressed by the opponent.
The opponent’s voice sounded, “Use all of your true strength. If you dare to reserve your power, you really have only one way today which is death.”
Loki snorted. His momentum soared again. The ice on his arms was atomized by the steaming cold air. There was a pair of gloves in his hands, and he slowly put it on. His whole body began to flash with a faint blue light. In an instant, the entire avenue turned into a frosty world. Even the 2 purple moons in the sky were frozen.
Obviously, this was the anomaly seen in the territory space. Chen Rui nodded slightly, “You should be a trainer who directly integrates water element proficiency into power. This territory alone is very close to Demon Overlord’s territory. It’s a bit surprising, but it’s a pity that your power is far from the Demon Overlord level.”
The corner of Loki’s eyes flicked. His heart palpitated as he was thoroughly seen. In order not to continue to be disturbed by the opponent’s psychological tactics, he shouted as his swift fists turned into countless sharp icy debris. They formed a storm and swept toward Chen Rui.
There seemed to be countless illusory attacks in the storm, but these attacks were not entirely illusions. The reality and the illusion were mixed. Chen Rui responded calmly and adopted a tight defense, but Loki’s attacks were extremely berserk. The intensive hitting sound never stopped. Chen Rui gradually couldn’t hold on to his defense. He was struck from time to time and his feet began to retreat.
Loki’s fierce attack was so smooth that he was so proud. Suddenly, he felt his territory was different. It seemed to be filled with a strange heat. His vision began to appear distorted like an illusion.
Loki hurriedly increased the output power of his [Absolute Ice Territory], and the chill instantly climbed to the apex. The chaotic snowstorm in the territory turned into countless sharp ice blades that completely surrounded Chen Rui. He was gradually frozen into an ice sculpture.
Although Loki had controlled the opponent, an ominous feeling grew stronger in his heart. He flew up and punched toward the ice sculpture with all his strength to crush the enemy. However, the burning and distorted feeling instantly became intense. The ice sculpture quickly melted away at a speed that was visible to the naked eye. Before Loki’s fist touched the ice sculpture, it was solidified by the intangible force from all directions. The fist actually couldn’t advance or retreat. He was frozen in place with his attacking motion.
Seeing Chen Rui unscathed, Loki’s heart trembled. He finally understood something. He gritted his teeth and said, “You… you have been teasing me!”
It’s too terrifying. Is Aguile’s strength really…
“Not exactly, I’m just using your power to experiment a new skill that I just realized,” Chen Rui said calmly, “It’s almost done now, so you are useless to me. I will give you the last way to survive – surrender.”
Actual combat was the best teacher. By using Loki’s territory to train, Chen Rui’s understanding of [Summer Territory] had been further improved. Not only could he absorb attacks, but he was getting more familiar with the other “dissolve” function. This power could remove the buff status of the opponent.
“In your dreams!” Loki’s gloves suddenly emitted a strong blue light, then it burst open. His whole arm became bloody, but he got rid of control through the self-explosion power of this quasi-legendary grade equipment. His body flew back like an arrow. He chanted a spell quickly, and a blue light gate faintly began to take shape behind him. It was the most mysterious teleportation magic of the water element, [Time and Space Gate].
Although Loki was a power trainer, and he was weak in spirit power, his proficient talent of water element allowed him to use this life-saving teleportation magic freely.
I must go into the [Time and Space Gate] quickly and escape from this terrifying enemy!
At this moment, Loki suddenly felt that his spirit power fluctuated abnormally. All the spirit power and magic power in the vicinity were flooding toward the enemy like a tide. In the blink of an eye, they had been swallowed up. The initial [Time and Space Gate] that was about to take shape suddenly disintegrated without a trace.
This time, even the last escape route was gone.
When Loki suddenly thought of the special skill of a famous artifact in the Demon Realm, he was shocked. Before he recovered his senses, there were already stars around him. Loki knew that it was a matter of life and death, so he activated [Absolute Ice Territory] with all his strength, but it was still futile.
In Loki’s eyes, the stars burst open in an instant. The destructive light filled his entire senses. The [Absolute Ice Territory] instantly collapsed like a ruin. His consciousness also collapsed together.
Chen Rui just used the God-Eating Mask’s skill to swallow the nearby magic power and cut off Loki’s final escape route. Then, he activated [Star Explosion] with reduced power- As Broc’s strongest subordinate, a living Loki was more valuable than a corpse before revealing the corresponding intel.
Chen Rui walked toward Loki. The visor of his helmet opened automatically, revealing the God-Eating Mask inside. The eyes of the mask flashed with a weird faint yellow light.
With the experience of the Bloody Empire’s Third General Adelaide, Chen Rui spent a lot of effort in the state of the [Royal Star Transformation]. He successfully turned Loki of the peak stage of the Demon Emperor into the second puppet of the God-Eating Mask .
Before Chen Rui rescued Loki to ask the related intel, a new information appeared in the [Analytical Eyes].
Race: Lust Royal Family.
Comprehensive Strength Assessment: S.
Physique: S-, Strength: S, Spirit: S, Speed: S.
[Analysis]: Wind attribute.
Asmodeus Royal Family at the intermediate stage of the Demon Overlord! Chen Rui was secretly stunned: I’m so focused on the gains ahead that I am unaware of danger behind? I haven’t noticed this mysterious Demon Overlord before this!
Judging from the initial confrontation with Gustav, the intermediate stage of the Demon Overlord is probably not what the [Royal Star Transformation] can fight with. Moreover, the time left for the [Royal Star Transformation] is running out…
The [Star Gate] currently has 2 star points. One is in the Dark Moon City and the other is in Town Leia. Chen Rui’s mind shifted and said, “Come out.”
The surroundings were still silent. Chen Rui snorted as he slowly turned around, “Friend of the Dark Shadow Empire royal family, don’t hide anymore. That dark stone doesn’t suit your Demon Overlord identity.”
At this time, a man’s voice just sounded, “I didn’t expect you to really see through my location. It’s really an amazing perception.”
On a rock near the mountain wall, a wisp of smoke rose up and solidified into a figure.
This was a man in his thirties. Because of Nirvana, the appearance of Asmodeus Royal Family members was very beautiful for both men and women. This man was no exception. No matter his appearance or temperament, they were one of the best. If his nephew was here, he would scold this handsome man jealously.
“I just noticed you just now.” Chen Rui looked at the man, “The Dark Moon Estate’s Red Blood Legion deputy legion commander, Aguile.”
“The Dark Shadow Empire’s Terdila. Asmodeus.” The man also politely introduced himself while looking at Chen Rui.
“You have been following Loki or Monroe?” Chen Rui asked tentatively. With Empress Catherine’s wisdom and methods, even if she didn’t see through Broc’s plot at the beginning, she wouldn’t be unprepared.
This Terdila is probably the last move that Catherine prepared.
“You guessed it right. Although Loki played a little trick to pretend to return to the Jergal Fortress, then he went to ambush Monroe and the others, but he still couldn’t hide his whereabouts from me. As for Monroe… it is much simpler, I just put a seed with a trace of spirit power on Fini, then I can use the secret technique to easily monitor her all the way.” Terdila’s eyes fell on the unconscious Fini, “However, not long ago, the power of the magic seed suddenly disappeared, so I came here, but I didn’t expect to be noticed by you so quickly. It seems that all of this is related to you, the unexpected factor. Your power is very strange, but it should not be as good as mine. I’m surprised that you can do this.”
The spiritual seed should have been swallowed by the God-Eating Mask. Chen Rui knew in his heart and asked, “Then, Sir Terdila, are you planning to take them all away?”
To Chen Rui’s surprise, Terdila shook his head, “My task is just to monitor. Unless it is a special situation ordered by Her Majesty, I will not make a move easily. Even if Crawford’s subordinates are killed by Loki, I still did not stop him… Therefore, you can bring these people away including that… Loki who should be controlled by the God-Eating Mask.”
Chen Rui’s pupils shrank slightly. This Terdila recognized the God-Eating Mask at a glance!
The patriarch Azgalor of the Beelzebub Royal Family has been captured by “Isis”. His current situation is unknown. If the fact that the God-Eating Mask may be related to Master “Arthur” is revealed, then Catherine will definitely confirm that Master Arthur is “Aguile” immediately. In fact, “Isis” had suspected Aguile in the beginning. It seems that Brother Mask can only continue to pretend to be mysterious.
As for the identity of the Beelzebub Royal Family, it just happened to confuse Catherine’s intel to avoid involving the human sheriff.
“Then, thank you very much.” Chen Rui did not explain. He nodded to Terdila, and he walked toward Monroe and the others.
“Wait a minute.” The breath on Terdila’s body slowly changed. The cold night breeze suddenly felt hot. A halo suddenly encircled the 4 people who were unconscious on the ground. It seemed to be some kind of protective power.
“Sir Terdila,” Chen Rui felt Terdila’s burning intent to fight. He stopped and frowned slightly, “Didn’t you say that you will not make a move easily? Is this a special situation that Her Majesty Empress ordered?”
“No.” Terdila replied indifferently. At this time, the night wind had changed the direction of its flow and turned into a huge whirlpool. The center of the whirlpool was the Demon Overlord of the Asmodeus Royal Family.
Although this kind of power seemed not as good as Loki’s [Absolute Ice Territory], the “quality” contained in it was not what Loki, the Demon Emperor level, could match at all.
Chen Rui’s Star Power was also rapidly gathering. He still asked, “So, does your personal hostility represent the will of the entire Dark Shadow Empire?”
Terdila shook his head, “The Dark Shadow Empire and the Dark Moon still has a cooperative and friendly relationship. I only represent myself. You previously dispelled the spiritual seed I put on Fini and saw through my location. You are considered an interesting opponent. Even if there is no order from Her Majesty, even if…”
Chen Rui nodded to express his understanding, then he followed up, “A general will not take an order from his ruler when he is on the field?”
“Well said!” Terdila raised a finger, “As long as you withstand my one blow, you can take these people away. Don’t worry, I won’t use territory power.”
Although it was only a blow, and it was not a territory, the power of the intermediate stage of the Demon Overlord was not trivial. This blow must be massive.
“Okay!” Chen Rui knew that even if he refused, the other party would attack. “There is an old saying that ’it is impolite to not reciprocate.’ I can take your blow, but you will also take mine afterward. Likewise, I won’t use territory either.”
“Interesting guy! Let’s see if you can take my blow first!” Terdila groaned. The ground around him suddenly cracked, and a great power was brewing in his breath. Chen Rui felt that the sky was dim, then countless roars of wind sounded. The surrounding space seemed to be torn apart. In the center of the terrifying power was a fist; Terdila’s fist.
Without the [Royal Star Transformation] that boosted Chen Rui’s power, he might not see the trajectory of this punch at all. Perhaps more precisely, it was the trajectory of countless punches which finally settled in this single punch.
Before the punch touched Chen Rui, the wind sound in the sky had surrounded his figure. There was no way to retreat; no way to avoid it!
The whistle that was enough to split the space finally calmed down. The ground was ravaged, and the nearby rock wall looked like a fragile wood. The surface was cut off by a layer. If it weren’t for the protection set by Terdila in advance, Loki and the others who were unconscious would have been wiped out long ago like Calder’s body in this catastrophe.
After the smoke and dust settled, the 2 figures in the field gradually became clear. They had already moved apart.
There was a disbelief look on Terdila’s face. This opponent actually endured a punch with 80% of my power forcefully, and he is unscathed!
To be precise, his attack was drawn and diverted away by a strange force field. Terdila’s eyes fixed on Chen Rui’s faintly radiant hand, “What… secret technique is this?”
Chen Rui did not explain, but he took a deep breath, “Whatever it is, I have taken your blow. Now, it’s my…”
The skill of [Star Diversion] was indeed incomparably mysterious. It could even divert a blow from the Dark Elemental King at the peak stage of the Demon Overlord. Along with the God-Eating Mask’s [Demonic Flies Transformation], they could be called the 2 great defensive skills. Now what Chen Rui wanted to try was to attack.
Terdila’s eyes narrowed slightly, “Okay! Let me see how far you can do it!”
When Chen Rui took 2 steps forward, a black flame burned up with a whirr.
Terdila raised his brows, and his eyes brightened because the breath of this flame made him feel so familiar: The bloodline talent unique to the Asmodeus Royal Family-Nirvana!
This should be Aguile of the Beelzebub Royal Family. How could he have the power of Nirvana?! And Nirvana is only used during transformation unless he has a special mutated talent. Otherwise, a typical Lust Royal Family member absolutely cannot use the power of Nirvana like this…
Terdila was in shock. The familiar Nirvana breath suddenly changed. It was full of violence and mania. The ground began to shake slightly under this charging power.
The violent breath had already climbed to the apex after a while. A huge, winding red dragon appeared and rushed toward Terdila ferociously. The ground along the way sunk and cracked. A corresponding snake-shaped trench appeared quickly.
The [Scorching Dragon Kill] of [Royal Star Transformation]!
The strongest killing move in his strongest state. The power of this move was even above [Star Explosion]!
A golden figure appeared out of thin air in front of Terdila. It opened its arms against the Scorching Dragon. Once the 2 met, the golden figure was already under terrifying pressure and made a gurgling sound. Terdila showed a solemn face. When he formed a hand gesture with both hands, the golden figure suddenly lit up with a strong runic light, but its body was still pushed back involuntarily under the impact of the Scorching Dragon. 20 meters, 50 meters, 100 meters…
Terdila retreated with the golden figure while swiftly forming another hand gesture. There was another layer of red light around the golden figure’s body. It seemed that its strength had skyrocketed. The pace of its retreat started to slow down, but it still did not stop. Not far behind was a mountain. The golden figure had been embedded into the mountain wall by the power of the Scorching Dragon. After some massive shakes, the violent red light dimmed and disappeared.
In the rock wall penetrated by the Scorching Dragon, the golden figure maintained the pose of reaching out to withstand the attack. It came out mechanically step by step, and it returned to Terdila.
Terdila saw the terrifying damage and distorted arms on the golden figure, and a horror expression flashed by his eyes: This is the strongest gold rank [War Puppet]. It is actually destroyed like this!
The power of the blow just now was far above my expectations. It is enough to deter the intermediate stage of the Demon Overlord… No matter whether it is caused by secret skills or not, the real combat power of this Aguile is at least equal to the early stage of the Demon Overlord. It is definitely not the Demon Emperor level as per the intel!
A deputy legion commander has Demon Overlord-level combat power. The Krobelus who surrendered to the opponent after the war of lords is also at Demon Overlord-level strength, plus the stronger Demon Overlord who secretly made a move at the auction, the Dark Moon probably has 3 Demon Overlord powerhouses! Not to mention the Dark Shadow Empire, even the strongest Bloody Empire, does not have an estate with such a strong power!
Terdila’s gaze turned to the opposite side. He frowned. The mysterious “Aguile” and the initially unconscious Loki as well as the others were gone, but a lingering sound similar to [Sonic Boom] came from a distance.
At this speed, I’m afraid it will be difficult to catch up.
Terdila didn’t know that this kind of speed could not last, but he had no intention of chasing after him. He just made a gesture, and the golden puppet had become a small palm-sized golden man in his hand. With a cold snort, his body flickered and disappeared.
He was approaching the top, but this was still not entirely his own strength but the Super System…
