As soon as Nero thought of this, he no longer had any scruples. He completely burst out the Demon Overlord power. Chen Rui felt the pressure doubled. Nero slammed his opponent away with his shield, and the light charging in his body suddenly shone. When the bident pointed to the sky, the 2 moons actually gradually moved and overlapped, the light became more and more dazzling that one could not look directly. It became a… sun!
Within the scope of the light, the temperature suddenly became much higher. Chen Rui knew that Nero had activated the territory power, so he did not rush in. He blocked with the Northsea and waited with a focused mind.
The biggest difference between the Demon Overlord and Demon Emperor lied in the understanding of power which was apparent in the territory. The Demon Emperor just barely used the power to imitate the power of nature while Demon Overlord uses himself as a guide to truly utilize the massive power of the world. The change of the 2 moons was an illusion in the territory. Isabella who was outside the territory only saw the space around Chen Rui and Nero was surrounded by a fiery light emitting a terrifying power; she was not particularly affected.
“Since you want my life, you must be prepared to die!” Nero’s voice sounded, “After killing you, that sword will be mine, and that woman will be mine. I want to possess her cruelly in front of your corpse! Trample on her!”
These few words made Chen Rui’s anger and killing intent surged to the extreme, but his gaze looked tranquil, revealing an almost cold calmness. This was the first time he had fought a real Demon Overlord powerhouse since he mastered the [Royal Star Transformation]. It was crucial not to be hot-headed at such a time.
As soon as the territory was cast, the situation was immediately reversed. Chen Rui felt that his power was suppressed to the lowest point in this sunny “world”, and even the activation of the skill became a lot slower. The Demon Overlord territory and the Demon Emperor were really a world different. Moreover, Nero would never restrain his power like when Chen Rui usually trained with Paglio and the others. Nero immediately used his killing move with all his strength. Chen Rui was suppressed for a while, and there were even life dangers several times.
Nero launched a barrage of attack, intending to defeat the opponent in one go, but he suddenly felt that his strength had inexplicably reduced a lot while the pressure from the opponent had greatly increased. Seeing stars were revolving around the opponent, he was immediately vigilant. He lifted the shield to cover his whole body and stretched the distance between them.
It turned out that Chen Rui had activated the [Galaxy Territory] skill. The current [Galaxy Territory] could enhance his full attributes by 50% and reduce opponent’s attributes by 50% for an hour.
Nero didn’t know the mystery of the Super System. Seeing that this Demon Emperor was able to activate the territory in his own territory, and was not suppressed by his own Demon Overlord territory, he was shocked, but his killing intent intensified. It was only the ordinary effect of suppressing the other territory, but the magical effect of the [Scorching Sun Territory] was much more than that. The sun’s rays flashed one after another in the sky, and there was a faint colorful light on the bident and the round shield. At the same time, all kinds of lights flashed on his body.
“Holy weapon! Holy Magic Armor! [Divine Blessing]! [Light Enchantment]!” For a while, Nero’s strength increased again, and the weakening effect of the [Galaxy Territory] was greatly reduced. Various buffs were added to the attack and defense attributes. “Although your territory is peculiar, in this [Scorching Sun Territory], I can have unlimited buffs and an immortal body, so you will undoubtedly lose today!”
Chen Rui had a few bottles of black potions in his hand. He uncovered his visor and drank them all. This was a complete set of “true” black potions which could greatly increase strength and other attributes in a short period of time, and there are no after-effects. In order to completely kill Nero, he had gone all out.
Nero was not very surprised or worried because there were pharmaceutics grand masters in the human world, so the black potions were not surprising. Furthermore, the difference between the realm and territory couldn’t be solved by simply taking potions. But Nero didn’t want to waste the time. It would be bad if the Dark Moon’s Demon Overlord powerhouse rushed over. At the moment, he rushed forward without waiting for Chen Rui to finish drinking the potion.
Chen Rui teleported again, then he drank all the potions during the interval of the next attack. At the same time, a faint red light appeared under his feet. He threw the empty bottle to face Nero’s attack. Nero did not lie indeed. Due to the colorful light, Northsea could only leave a shallow mark on the shield this time. However, Chen Rui consumed the true black potions, plus Mystic Jade Armor’s [Hot Blood Halo], so his strength and other attributes were greatly enhanced. He gradually got rid of Nero’s territory suppression.
In a sense, the two were back to square one.
Both were in a stalemate for some time. Nero did not want to prolong the battle, so he took advantage of his strength and flew into the air. With a flicker of his body, he actually disappeared.
Immediately after that, the “sun” emitted a terrifying bright light. The nearby ground quickly became scorched and cracked. Many creatures in the territory withered and died in an instant.
The Northsea sword in Chen Rui’s hand turned into a purple light, covering his whole body, but no matter how much he waved the sword, it could not stop the light. Fortunately, he immediately cast a protective shield to block the sunlight.
Chen Rui leaped up and urgently rushed toward the “sun” in the air. Several light balls were ejected from his hands and flew quickly into the “sun”. However, they disappeared without a trace.
The “sun” sent out a majestic force field, and the intangible field force pushed Chen Rui’s figure which was in the sky to the ground. It was just like a real sun that could only be looked up from the ground.
Chen Rui noticed that the protective shield had become very thin at this time. It seemed that it wouldn’t last long. At the moment when the protective shield disappeared, a mask suddenly appeared on his face. As soon as this mask appeared, the majestic spirit power nearby quickly moved toward the mask; even the “sunlight” was rapidly weakening. Nero’s figure was revealed gradually.
“What secret technique is this? It can actually swallow my magic and spirit power!” Nero’s voice was mixed with surprise and rage, “Unfortunately, my territory is not only based on spirit power! Try this strongest trick, [Light Shadow Clone]!”
Countless figures jumped out from the sun; all of them were buffed. In Chen Rui’s [Analytical Eyes], each of them was actually real. Although the strength of the clone was much weaker than the real person and the duration was also limited judging from the blinking state, but the number was very alarming.
Chen Rui slashed with his [Aura Blade] and cut a clone in half. However, the 2 clones burst apart, and the force was very strong. Even the Star Armor shook violently. Chen Rui’s qi and blood were churning due to the explosion. He immediately retreated for a distance.
“Forgot to remind you that they will blow themselves up.” Nero’s arrogant voice sounded.
With so many “Nero”, once he was jointly attacked or they blew up together, even if Chen Rui had reached the strength of Demon Overlord, he would inevitably be severely injured.
Chen Rui did not panic. His figure appeared in the air instantly, attracting the clones to chase after him, then he suddenly launched [Sonic Boom] and flew toward the ground. At the moment he was about to land, he forcibly turned his body and pointed above at the clones with Northsea. The purple sword body instantly emitted dazzling light, bursting countless meteor-like beams which spread rapidly upward in a fan shape.
This was the powerful charge skill of the Northsea, [Flow Back to Origin]!
Previously, Chen Rui used Northsea to deliberately resist the power of the sun in order to complete the charge. His original intention was to seize the opportunity to launch the big move to hit the “sun.” But unexpectedly Nero used this clone technique. The [Flow Back to Origin] happened to be the nemesis of this technique.
The attack range of this trick was extremely large, and its power was terrifying. Wherever they went, the “Nero(s)” were penetrated and burst open; none of them were spared.
After the clones were eliminated, the power of [Flow Back to Origin] still did not weaken. Countless meteors gathered into a huge sword shape and flew toward the “sun”.
“Ah!” A scream sounded, and the “sun” in the sky was cut in half, but the two halves of the sun did not disappear. Instead, weird changes took place slowly. They separated again and became two complete suns.
Nero’s hateful voice echoed in the territory, “The terrifying sword actually has double damage of light element and water element! You made me suffer this kind of injury! No matter who is behind you, I will break you into pieces today ! [Great Extinction Light]!” The two suns emitted strong rays of light at the same time which shone toward Chen Rui. Chen Rui’s figure scattered into countless flies in an instant. When the light shone on the flies, it actually couldn’t inflict any harm. However, the time of the [Demonic Flies Transformation] was limited, and the light would shine for a long time. When the flies combined into a human form in an instant, he couldn’t escape and was directly shone.
An extra large round shield appeared in Chen Rui’s hand to protect his head and other vitals. Suddenly, Nero felt that the other parts illuminated by the rays of light were very strange. Chen Rui’s body actually absorbed most of his attack power and transformed it into its own power. The remaining destructive power couldn’t penetrate the Mystic Jade Armor’s Star Armor at all.
“What kind of shield is this!” Nero was horrified, and he immediately reacted, “No! Not the power of a shield! It is [Body of Light Blessing]! A holy envoy with [Body of Light Blessing]… Is it Saint of Light? ! Impossible!”
Saint of Light is known as God’s chosen one. There are a total of 12 and they are the representative of the Light Divinity Temple. The 2 notable features are the strongest [Armor of Faith] and [Body of Light Blessing]. The mysterious Chen Rui in front of has both features. Could it be…
No wonder he has all kinds of treasures. It turns out that he is actually 1 of the 12 saints!
Saint of Light is better than ordinary saints as they have the [Body of Light Blessing] which is almost invincible in this kind of battle. Besides, he has the terrifying killing move just now! Nero couldn’t help but feel timid when he thought of the might of the temple. He no longer dared to continue the fight. He glanced at Isabella in the distance. As his mind shifted, the [Scorching Sun Territory] spread rapidly, and the light instantly spread to the location of Isabella. Although Isabella was alert, she was exhausted and injured at the moment, so it was too late to dodge. She was trapped in the light curtain, unable to move.
“Don’t move! If you move, I will kill this woman!”
Chen Rui’s figure stopped, and Nero became more sure that the relationship between Chen Rui and Isabella was not simple. He channeled the territory power, and the scorching sun was locked on Isabella, “If you want her to live, hand over your sword first!”
Nero believed that Chen Rui’s strongest reliance was the sword that could emit the power of light element and water element, so he first forced him to hand over his most powerful weapon.
“Okay! You let her go first!”
Isabella didn’t say anything like “leave me alone”, but she just glanced at Chen Rui. From that gaze, Chen Rui saw a strong determination and death intent, plus a touch of gentleness before the farewell.
“No!” Chen Rui knew what she was going to do, and the boiling blood instantly concentrated on his brain. The territory power that had already reached the maximum burst out suddenly. In an instant, everything except him paused. Chen Rui didn’t know why this happened, but he felt that the territory power was being exhausted exponentially. He didn’t have the time to think much about it. He tapped his foot, came to Isabella’s side and hugged her tightly.
In an instant, the static time resumed its flow again. Neither Isabella nor Nero seemed to feel anything abnormal just now. It was just inexplicable that Chen Rui “crossed” hundreds of meters and held Isabella in his arms; even she herself thought that it was an illusion.
Nero was also taken aback. The purpose of this threat came to no avail. He smiled bitterly, “Although I can’t kill you today, you can’t kill me either! In the [Scorching Sun Territory], you can’t give I’m a fatal blow! I will definitely announce your identity as the Saint of Light to the Demon Realm. At that time, I don’t need to do anything, and you will be beheaded by the Demon Realm’s powerhouse! Even if you didn’t die, I will spread the news that the Saint of Light has an affair with the demon from the Demon Realm everywhere when I return to the human world. No matter where you are, there will be no place for you!”
Chen Rui guarded Isabella behind his back and stared directly at the dazzling “sun” in the sky. The burning power on his body did not reduce, but became manic instead. He uttered 2 words, “[Star Devouring]!”
A huge black hole appeared in the air. At the moment the black hole appeared, everything in the territory rushed toward the black hole, including the rays of the two “suns” that were distorted by the terrifying swallowing force.
Isabella looked terrified. If Chen Rui hadn’t deliberately allocated his strength to protect her, she would have been swallowed by this terrifying “hole”.
Chen Rui’s gaze gradually changed, exuding a hint of destruction and fierceness. There was red color in his black pupils, and the power of the black hole suddenly increased several times. Not only the light, but even the two “suns” themselves slowly moved toward the black hole involuntarily.
Nero felt like he was a frog stared at by a viper. He did his best to resist the engulfing black hole full of breath of destruction. Chen Rui suddenly leaned forward and actually jumped toward the black hole. His body became a black smoke and merged into the black hole. The terrifying devouring power rose again, and the two “suns” finally couldn’t resist. They were dragged into the black hole step by step.
After a while, Isabella felt dizzy. The radiant territory, the suns, and the black hole disappeared in the blink of an eye. The 2 moons were still high up in the sky as if nothing had happened.
There were two people in the field.
The person with a dark red armor was Chen Rui. His five fingers were holding Nero’s head, and Nero’s eyes had rolled up. His body was actually shriveled to bones as if his blood and power had all been sucked out. His mouth made a trembling sound.
“Don’t kill me! I’m the royal family member of the Blue Glory Empire…”
The blood-red pupils flashed, and the five fingers exerted force without hesitation. With a “click”, the head broke apart.
Did Chen Rui finally accept the power of Shura because of anger?
