Chen Rui came to the Dark Demon’s headquarters at the fastest speed and saw casualties all around. Many of the original magic circles were either stopped or destroyed. They were destroyed from the inside. It seemed that this spy was very familiar with the magic circles. It should be the person responsible for controlling the magic circles.
A big hole was broken apart at the entrance of the underground base. Chen Rui rushed in all the way to the hall.
The hall was in a mess. A few people were lying on the ground. Among them was Delia with her eyes closed. Chen Rui’s heart suddenly felt tense. He hurried forward and found that Delia’s face was green. She seemed to be unconscious from being poisoned. The same goes for several members of the Dark Demon around.
Chen Rui was now quite proficient in the knowledge of pharmaceutics. He could see that these people were poisoned by a very powerful soul-dispersing poison. Fortunately, the poisoning was not too deep yet, and the storage warehouse happened to have a lot of herbs for learning purposes. He immediately took out a spirit purifying leaf and placed it on the tip of her nose. At the same time, he activated his power to suppress the poison. He made a small cut on Delia’s finger, and the cyan poisonous blood flowed out immediately.
This heteropathy method was very effective. Delia had the strength of the Great Demon King level. She gradually opened her eyes. Chen Rui immediately fed her a bottle of detoxification potion. The green color on Delia’s face finally disappeared, but her body was still very weak.
“Quick! Go save Isabella…”
It turned out that the poisoning was done by the dark elf Tara, Delia’s trusted assistant. Last time, she took Chen Rui to the communication magic circle. Tara was the elite of the dark elves, and she was proficient at using poison. This time, she mainly poisoned the drinking water. This poison itself was very venomous. In addition, Tara did something to the late night wave flower in the underground base in order to catalyze the toxin.
Isabella was the only one who was alert of this because she was also an expert in poison, but due to the sudden incident, Delia and the others had been poisoned when she found out something was amiss. At this time, there was a warning of a powerful enemy invasion. They appeared in the lobby with ease. Isabella didn’t have time to rescue everyone. She killed Tara decisively, then she led away the powerful enemy.
After listening to Delia’s short narrative, Chen Rui’s figure flickered and disappeared.
A figure moving at lightning speed in the eastern suburbs suddenly stopped. It staggered a few steps and almost collapsed. This was a woman wearing a long blue dress. The white gauze on her face was stained red with blood. She was obviously severely injured.
Suddenly, a light was shining brightly behind her. The light condensed into the figure of a man. The man was not tall with an average appearance. He had very special silver hair.
“Finally, you can’t run anymore.” The man’s eyes looked like a cat playing with a mouse. “The talent of the royal family of demons is really amazing. A Demon Emperor can actually persist for so long in my hands, but unfortunately, your escape directions are intercepted by me. You can only escape outside the city. Even if the support could find this place, they can only get a corpse. Am I right? The leader of the Dark Moon Estate’s Dark Demon, or I should call you… Miss Isabella ?Although you are wearing a veil, you can’t hide from me, your admirer.”
“Nero!” Isabella gritted her teeth and uttered a man’s name.
This person was actually the human who ventured into the Demon Realm for training to become the Demon Overlord, the royal family of the Blue Glory Empire, Nero. For some reasons, he had not returned to the human world, and he even became the assassin sent by Prince Obsidian to the Dark Moon.
The change in the Dark Demon’s headquarters was too sudden, so Isabella had no time to make more response. She knew that Krobelus was in closed training, and her initial attempt to escape to Chen Rui’s house in the east to seek protection from Zola or Paglio was also seen through and blocked by the other party. She was forced to escape from the city gate. There were dangers along the way, and her injuries were not minor. She was almost in a dead end now.
“It’s really an honour to be remembered by Ms. Isabella.” Nero smiled presumptuously, “It turns out that you faked death last time and hid in such a place to secretly go against Prince Obsidian. If I take you to Royal Highness Obsidian, I believe I will get a more generous reward.”
As Nero said, there was suddenly a kind of lust in his eyes, “I have always wanted you, but unfortunately there was the eyesore, Krobelus, previously. I suffered a few setbacks and I still couldn’t get you. Unexpectedly, just before I leave the Demon Realm, I can actually realize my wish. It is really Light God’s blessing. Before I hand you over to Prince Obsidian, I will let a wicked demon like you have a taste of the real Light Family’s punishment with your body.”
Isabella’s eyes were ice-cold, “All you can get is a corpse.”
“I don’t mind even if it’s a corpse.” Nero’s smile became more and more perverted.
Isabella clenched her fist, gritted her teeth and said, “This is the so-called Light Family?”
“In the face of darkness, everything in the light is righteous. I’m just purifying your soul and body.” Nero smiled shamelessly, and his spirit power was locking at Isabella, “Don’t try to delay the time, now your strength is running out now. If you are smart, obey me obediently, so as not to suffer more by then!”
Isabella suddenly radiated a strong light, turned into lightning, and instantly appeared in front of Nero. The dagger in her hand turned into phantoms which surrounded Nero.
However, Nero smashed all the phantoms with just one punch, and the dagger fell to the ground with a clang. Isabella’s figure quickly retreated. The blood stains on her veil continued to expand.
“A Demon Emperor has no chance of winning against a Demon Overlord, even if you exhaust your vitality. You have tried several times along the way.”
Isabella was unmoved. Her left eye suddenly turned golden, and a destructive beam of light burst out from it. However, a set of armor loomed on Nero’s body. The beam from Isabella could not penetrate the armor. Instead, her eyes suffered some kind of recoil and started bleeding. She finally couldn’t stand still and fell to the ground. “This is Holy Magic Armor. Your attack of this level is just injuring yourself. You can’t even hurt my skin. I’ll give you one last chance to be my servant. I will not hand you over to Obsidian and will even take you back to the human world to enjoy the light of the human world.” Nero walked over step by step, deliberately disintegrating Isabella’s psychological defense.
Isabella suddenly laughed; her laughter was filled with hatred. Back to the human world? Didn’t that human say the same thing back then?
It seems that I will definitely be defeated today, but even if I die, I will not fall into the hands of this pervert!
Her blue eyes became decisive. As the head of the secret intelligence department, she had more than one way to end her life, including 2 ways that would not even let the other party get her corpse. Unfortunately, she couldn’t see that man for one last time…
She didn’t understand what was the relationship between herself and this man, but before she died, she had a very strong desire to see him, even if she just glanced at him. When she was about to use the secret technique to explode, suddenly there was a strange sound of sonic boom. Nero frowned. The low-altitude flying figure rushed at high speed, and it immediately landed after noticing the 2 people below.
It’s him! Isabella’s blue eyes flickered, but her voice became extremely cold and murderous, “Simon, it turns out you have betrayed Princess Royal too! You want to take advantage of the current turmoil?”
Chen Rui originally guessed that Isabella would escape to the sheriff residence, but from the signs along the way, it seemed that she had been intercepted and escaped from the east gate, so he chased her all the way. He finally found Isabella now, but he didn’t expect her first sentence was this.
Nero looked at the man suspiciously. He felt some familiarity: Is it someone from the Dark Moon? Judging from Isabella’s attitude, he should be.
“I happen to lack a guy to accompany my death.” Isabella’s power began to surge again. She slowly stood up as if she was burning her last vitality, but she had no regrets.
Chen Rui immediately understood Isabella’s intentions. The enemy is very strong, run away! I will cover you!
The anxious expression in the blood-dripping eyes of this woman who did not hesitate to burn her life to let him escape. Behind her cold and murderous tone was a deep affection.
When Chen Rui suddenly thought of the last scene of the battle with Broc back then, his heart trembled. A certain part of his mind was truly moved. Even if it had been sealed tightly, a crack was opened up in front of this flame after all.
Although this kind of movement would bring more troubles and trivial things in the future, he was indeed moved, and he could no longer suppress his feelings.
“Go get Sir Sarandi; leave it to me here.” Nero had been coveting Isabella’s beauty for a long time. Now that he finally had a chance, he naturally didn’t want someone to ruin his plan.
Isabella was secretly relieved, but Chen Rui didn’t move. He just shook his head at her, “Yini.”
Isabella was shocked. It was the first time this man called her like this since that time. Furthermore, it felt very natural. This was a real affectionate nickname, unlike the previous pretentious courtesy.
Chen Rui appeared in front of Isabella in an instant. He put a hand on her shoulder, preventing the burning of vitality, “I’m no longer who I was. I will never let the same scene happen again. Trust me, okay?”
Isabella trembled slightly while looking at the determination in his eyes. She felt that there seemed to be something in him that he didn’t usually have, and her eyes became gentle as she nodded, “En.”
Nero came with an angry voice, “So you… Oh, I remember, you are the human Chen Rui!”
Chen Rui gave Isabella a bottle of healing potion, and he turned his head fiercely. His two murderous eyes glared at Nero.
Even Nero had a tingling sensation in an instant. Seeing Chen Rui and Isabella’s intimate scene, he roared, “Damn it! You are just a mere Demon Emperor, yet you are so arrogant! Hmph! I don’t care what Obsidian orders, I will kill you first, then rape this woman first before killing her!”
As soon as he finished speaking, Chen Rui’s body lit up with a brilliant light. Even in this kind of daytime, one could feel the brilliance like countless stars, and his breath skyrocketed correspondingly.
The sense of crisis in Nero’s heart became stronger and stronger. When he felt that the breath surpassed the Demon Emperor’s level and was still increasing, he finally couldn’t help making a move. He came to the light in an instant and punched it. The punch didn’t have the slightest effect, but the expansion inside the light became more intense.
After a few punches in a row were futile, Nero was astounded. He instantly moved for some distance. A light burst out in an instant, revealing the enemy in full body armor in the center.
Nero looked at the star-shining armor warily. When he felt the noble and elegant breath, suddenly his complexion changed greatly, “[Armor of Faith]! You’re… a holy envoy of the Light Divinity Temple?”
Chen Rui frowned slightly: [Armor of Faith]? Holy envoy of Light Divinity Temple? Right! At the Mountain Seckred, the Demi-God Satan mentioned the concept of [Armor of Faith]. Tiffany owns Satan’s [Armor of Faith]. It seems that behind the Light Divinity Temple, there must be a Demi-God powerhouse!
“No! This armor seems to be stronger than the armor of the ordinary holy envoy…” Nero’s face was even more horrified, “Who are you!”
Chen Rui, the famous internal affairs genius of the Demon Realm, is actually a powerhouse similar to the light holy envoy. Could he be a hidden chess piece of the temple?
“I am the person who wants your life!” As the [Royal Star Transformation] had limited time, Chen Rui didn’t want to be long-winded. His figure flashed and appeared in front of Nero, there was a faint sword light on his palm, striking toward Nero.
Nero felt that there was a change in the opponent’s strength, so he didn’t dare to forcefully withstand it. He dodged, and the sword qi in the air left a deep trench which was more than 10 meters long on the ground. Nero was shocked, and he no longer dared to underestimate the enemy. A bident appeared in his left hand. As he waved it, numerous sharp qi was launched atChen Rui. His right hand was holding a round shield with a griffin pattern on it.
Chen Rui launched several [Aura Blades], but they were actually blocked by the round shield. Even the intangible sword qi could not penetrate through. Instead, he was almost injured by the bident. He knew that this set of weapons was not trivial. The artifact, “Northsea”, had appeared in his hand. He slammed the bident aside, and the sword turned into a gleam of light, flashing toward Nero’s throat like lightning.
Nero raised his right hand, the round shield blocked the sword, but the tip of the sword actually pierced the shield. When it was retracted, there was a transparent sword hole on the shield. Nero was taken aback. This shield is a masterpiece of the hobbit mechanic master, Dowa. It has amazing defensive power and has been following me for many years. I never thought that the opponent’s sword is so sharp that it can actually pierce through the shield.
The two men fought while moving forward. The unprotected ground was cracking and twisting due to the terrible pressure. Nero was actually suppressed in a disadvantageous situation.
Seeing that the opponent’s attack was getting more and more fierce, Nero couldn’t bother more. Even if the opponent’s background is not trivial, I can’t just wait for him to kill me. Besides, the Demon Realm is not a human world. Even if I killed him, the Light Divinity Temple also won’t know about it!
Thinking of this, Nero didn’t have the kind of restraint that he had previously: This “Chen Rui” obviously used some secret technique to forcibly increase his strength to the Demon Overlord level. He is surely not my opponent as a real Demon Overlord powerhouse. As long as I kill him with all my strength, not only I will get Isabella, I will also get that sharp sword!
Of all the opponents, I thought Nero was an op character?. How could he not be able to fight back?
