Facing the terrifying giant undead dragon, Pegasus did not have the time to tend to his wound. With a shake of his body, he rushed straight toward the magician in a black cloak.
The magician was the key to controlling the spirit dragon. As long as he was killed, the soul of this terrifying monster and the entire undead army would rest completely.
The magician in a black cloak had anticipated this move long ago. The spirit dragon intercepted Pegasus quickly. The swift movement did not look like a skeleton at all, but a real dragon.
3 pairs of light wings appeared behind Pegasus, and his speed suddenly increased. He soared into the sky to avoid the attack of the spirit dragon. He turned his right hand into a knife and slashed downward in the air. This move was somewhat similar to Chen Rui’s [Aura Blade] posture, but the effect was completely different. [Aura Blade] was an invincible sharp qi, but this cut was a great torrential force. The surging and powerful force was like a sky-shaking giant palm that hit right on the head of the spirit dragon. The giant body fell from mid-air, leaving a huge hole on the ground with cracks spreading nearly 100 meters.
Pegasus didn’t chase the spirit dragon, but he punched the air and hit the magician in a black cloak directly. This punch was as powerful as the previous blow. The magician in a black cloak screamed. The surrounding temperature suddenly dropped, and the space seemed to have a weird twist in an instant.
In the blink of an eye, this punch had hit the magician’s body and tore his body apart. However, as the space twisted, the broken body fragments were strangely reintegrated into their original shape.
After his body recovered, the magician gasped in a panic.
Pegasus frowned slightly. The opponent probably escaped this blow luckily by combining the power of territory and dark magic. Although this move is extremely mysterious, it shows the subtle and ingenious control of magic power. However, at the same time, it consumes a lot of spirit power. It is impossible to avoid the second blow with the same tricks.
The great realm difference between Demon Emperor level and Demon Overlord level cannot be made up for by the mystery of skills.
“Spirit dragon! Protect me!” The magician in a black cloak exclaimed, knowing he was in a critical situation.
The spirit dragon burst out again and attacked Pegasus. When Pegasus’ [Holy Wings] flapped, his body retreated rapidly in the air. It was even faster than when he was moving forward. While he was retreating, his hands had charged a great power.
“[Dark Flame Meteor]!” Pegasus’ figure suddenly paused. As he shouted, countless black huge fireballs shot out from his pair of hands. Each of the fireballs had the magnificent power that could tear the air. The fireballs flew toward the spirit dragon like a series of dark meteors piercing the night sky. This was the big move where Pegasus combined the talent of Lucifer Royal Family [Dark Flame]. It had amazing power.
These fireballs were approaching quickly. The spirit dragon couldn’t dodge them. There was an explosion sound when it was hit. If it was a real giant dragon, it would probably be screaming tragically now.
After Pegasus got the hit, he turned to other direction without hesitation. Under the acceleration of [Holy Wings], he flew toward the magician in a black cloak with all his strength- With the spirit dragon, activating territory will waste more time. The top priority must be to kill the magician with one blow which is the fastest and most effective means to completely solve the scourge of this spirit dragon and the undead army!
A destructive [Dark Flame] burned on Pegasus’ 5 fingers. This time, the magician in a black cloak will not have any luck!
The magician was shocked. He knew he could not dodge, so he controlled the spirit dragon to rush toward Pegasus while resisting the power of the [Dark Flame Meteor]. Pegasus was determined to solve the root cause of this disaster and ignored the spirit dragon’s aggressive attacks. He fully unleashed the power of [Holy Wings] with all his strength and rushed straight to the magician in a black cloak.
Anyway, as long as I kill the magician, I can stop all the undead!
In the blink of an eye, Pegasus had already appeared in front of the magician. The opponent was obviously not familiar with melee combat. Moreover, the strength gap between both sides was too far apart. Pegasus grabbed the magician’s head. Amidst the screams, the terrifying black flame burned the magician’s entire body into ashes.
However, Pegasus’s complexion changed drastically in the next second as the spirit dragon did not stop because of the death of the core controller as he expected. Instead, it accelerated and bit. Its sharp teeth penetrated his body.
As it happened suddenly, Pegasus had no time to react. It was not until the tearing pain came that he seemed to realize what was happening and screamed. The spirit dragon bit Pegasus’ body and shook him fiercely, smashing all the strength of his resistance, then it slammed him to the side.
Pegasus was thrown out by a terrifying force, and a terrifying human-shaped pit was smashed out on the hard rock. Under the massive force, the rock slowly cracked and fell apart. Pegasus’s body fell straight down to the ground.
The fall almost shattered his bones, but the most severe injury was the few piercing teeth marks on his body. His left leg, shoulders and internal organs were all seriously injured. The bitten big hole continued to bleed profusely. Part of his broken organs also flowed out of the body.
Pegasus burned his last strength desperately. As he was about to stand up, a huge body slammed down. The ghastly white feet stomped heavily on his back, and the sound of bone shattering sounded. He was entirely plunged into the ground. The power of dragons was too terrifying. Even the body of a Demon Overlord couldn’t withstand an attack of this intensity. This blow also defeated Pegasus’ last hope.
“There is an old saying in the Demon Realm, it’s a bit of a difference, yet it’s a world’s difference.” The familiar voice sounded, and it was the magician in a black cloak that should have been burned to ashes.
Pegasus’s neck bone was broken, so he was unable to turn his head, but the terror in his heart reached its climax. My [Dark Flame] obviously annihilated this magician!
“Actually, your idea is not wrong. As long as I die, the undead under my control, including this spirit dragon, will be destroyed. Unfortunately… Although you haven’t been confused by my [Mirror Image] projectors and found my true body, you don’t know what my real body is. Lucifer Royal Family’s [Dark Flame] is indeed very powerful, but for a magician who has transformed himself into a dead person, ‘destruction’ is far less terrifying than ‘vitality’. Compared with [Dark Flame], someone’s Nirvana fire is the power that makes me truly terrified.”
Transformed into a dead person? Pegasus finally understood. Corpse necromancer! This magician is a corpse necromancer!
The corpse necromancer only had a skeleton body without flesh and blood. They stored their soul essence in some kind of container. As long as the soul essence was not dead, the corpse necromancer could use corpses to resurrect indefinitely. The soul container was also called the life box.
The body burned by the [Dark Flame] was a temporary body used by the corpse necromancer. Even if Pegasus destroyed the soul state in front of him, he still could not truly destroy the necromancer.
The magician’s eerie laughter sounded again, “Speaking of which I really want to thank someone for the giant dragon bone, but from this battle, this most accomplished work still needs further improvement. I am hesitant about one thing now. Should I take the challenge to transform a Demon Overlord-level into an undead or should I hand over a living Demon Overlord to my generous master?”
Pegasus’ ears could no longer hear the magician’s eerie laughter. He couldn’t even feel the terrifying pressure behind him.
It is indeed a fatal mistake of judgment…
The previous actions of this magician were deliberately creating illusions…
If I wasn’t being eager for success because the army was surrounded…
If I patiently prepare for the tough battle from the beginning…
As a result, Pallor’s army is truly trapped in a desperate situation…
How many hidden terrifying powers are there in the Dark Moon…
As the blood kept flowing out, Pegasus’ consciousness began to blur.
Just when Pallor’s army was in desperation, Chen Rui on the other side in the White Feather Estate also arrived at the destination, Cold Mist Swamp.
As the name suggested, Cold Mist Swamp was shrouded with white mist, and the temperature was extremely low. Frozen ice pits could be seen on the ground at any time.
Chen Rui had been trained in various scenarios such as icebergs, volcanoes, and seabeds. Naturally, he could easily adapt to this harsh environment, but there seemed to be some kind of powerful creatures in the misty swamp. The griffin refused to fly forward when it just reached the edge. Chen Rui knew that he could not force it, so after getting off, he let the griffin leave freely.
With the [Star Gate], returning to the White Feather City would only take an instant once the mission was completed,.
“Woah!” The moment Chen Rui was distracted, his feet sank into the mud again at knee-level. Although he was familiar with the environment of misty swamp, it was the first time he came to Cold Mist Swamp after all. The mud water seeping into the boots was not a comfortable feeling. Especially when he kept walking like this, the sticky feeling was pretty awful. Nevertheless, Chen Rui didn’t care about it. He moved fast according to the magic map in his hand. According to the map, after passing through the mangrove forest, he could see Mountain Loeb Mine.
Chen Rui stopped suddenly; his figure almost disappeared in the blink of an eye.
“Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh…” Several arrows shot through his initial position.
Chen Rui’s figure appeared in front of the trees. He saw a meandering figure retreating quickly. It was an almost naked female upper body with a snake lower body. She was holding a bow in her hand—Medusa!
Unexpectedly, there is Medusa in this misty swamp! Chen Rui was the master of the underground Medusa tribe in Mountain Xilang. He did not have any repulsive feeling to this kind of “demonic beasts” that the outsiders fear, but a kind of cordial feeling instead.
Along the way, in order to avoid some reckless demonic beasts, Chen Rui deliberately released the breath of the Demon Emperor. These Medusas were only at the Demon King level, but they dared to attack with initiative. It was obvious that he was regarded as an invader.
“Please don’t get me wrong! I have no ill intentions.” Chen Rui tried to communicate with the nearest Medusa through his [Analytical Eyes].
The Medusa figure paused and glanced at Chen Rui. The golden snake pupils in her eyes suddenly radiated a strange light. Chen Rui felt a little numb, but he was not affected.
He was no longer a rookie in the underground world of Mountain Xilang. Otherwise, this stare full of Medusa’s talent power could instantly turn his whole body into stone. Now, with just a slight movement of his spirit power, the other party’s petrifying gaze lost its effect.
Seeing that the petrifying was ineffective, this Medusa quickly backed away. The Medusa behind her kept firing arrows to stop him. Chen Rui thought about it and did not pursue her. He continued to move toward Mountain Loeb Mine in the direction shown on the map.
After walking through the woods for a while, the Medusa reappeared in front of him. This time the number was far more than the last time, and they all launched attacks without any explanation.
It seemed that the mangrove forest was likely to be Medusa’s land, but it was also the fastest way to reach the mining area. Chen Rui chose this route because he wanted to save time. Now it seemed that this was more time-consuming than he thought.
The arrows and scimitar of Medusas were all made of metal, but the equipment was much worse than that of the Mountain Xilang’s Medusa tribe. However, their strength was generally higher than the Medusa tribe of Mountain Xilang. The weakest was only at the Higher Demon. There were few of the Demon King level, and there were even 2 Great Demon King which seemed to be a very powerful tribe.
It was not that the Medusa tribe in the underground world of Mountain Xilang was weak, but because they have lost a large number of elites in the 400 years of fighting against the earth elementals controlled by Glorfin. Even Tim’s mother-in-law, Madam Queen Medusa, died.
Since the communication of the [Analytical Eyes] was unsuccessful, Chen Rui did not want to waste time and energy anymore. He chose the most effective communication method; fist.
There was a big gap between the strength of these Medusas and his. Furthermore, Chen Rui was very familiar with Medusa’s fighting styles. His body movement was like a ghost. With every move, a Medusa would be defeated. After a while, except for the intermediate stage Great Demon King Medusa in front of him, the rest all were all down. Chen Rui controlled his strength well so as not to kill them. He just knocked down or stunned them.
Chen Rui grabbed the scimitar slashed by the Medusa, ignoring the petrifying gaze of the Medusa’s eyes. When he shook his wrist, the Medusa who could not hold the scimitar in her hand was thrown upside down. She finally managed to maintain her balance with her snake’s body.
“I’m not Medusa’s enemy. I want to see your queen. Please past this message to her; I’ll wait for her here.” Chen Rui’s hand exerted a force, and the scimitar was suddenly into a ball. The threat was self-evident.
Medusas were highly intelligent creatures. She looked at her knocked off companions including a Great Demon King whose strength was equal to her, then she looked at the distorted scimitar in Chen Rui’s hand. Finally, she nodded and turned back to leave.
Soon, a group of Medusas appeared in sight. Chen Rui’s gaze fell on the Medusa at the front. This one had a much more refined appearance and skin than the others, wearing a tight-fitting leather armor. The scale armor of her lower snake body was colorful and vibrant. She had 2 silver scimitars in her hands which were of much better quality than the one twisted by Chen Rui.
What Chen Rui noticed was not her appearance, but her strength.
Race: Medusa (mutated)
Comprehensive Strength Assessment: A.
Generally speaking, the upper limit of the Medusa tribe was the Great Demon King. The Queen Medusa in the underground world of Mountain Xilang stayed at the peak stage of the Great Demon King for many years and could not break through. Meanwhile, the strength of this Queen Medusa with mutated bloodline had actually reached the intermediate stage of the Demon Emperor. She could be regarded as the genius of the Medusa tribe.
The Queen Medusa was also looking at Chen Rui as she moved forward and said, “I’m the queen of the Cold Mist Medusa tribe, can you understand our language?”
Chen Rui nodded and replied through his [Analytical Eyes], “Yes, Queen Royal Highness.”
Queen Medusa’s snake eyes coldly glanced at the Medusas who were lying on the ground. When she realized that they were not in danger of life, she looked more at ease as she nodded and said, “As long as you let my people go, I can give you some snake blood fruits.”
Snake blood fruit? Chen Rui faintly understood the reason for the misunderstanding.
He could almost run a plant shop if he wasn’t the MC😂 He almost gathered all the rare plants and fruits. This Medusa tribe was different from the one at the underground of Mountain Xilang. It was almost unlikely that he could convince them to join his side, right?
