Looking at the long snake-like serpentine fiery “giant beast”, the crystal dragon instinctively felt a kind of suppression. It was not only the soul pressure in the cold breath, but the ferocious giant beast itself seemed to have a natural coercion of the same level. The crystal dragon even had the illusion that this was a real dragon! He was nothing but a lizard with bat wings…
How is it possible? It’s just an unknown demonic beast imitated from power!
The destructive icy breath did not conflict with the Scorching Dragon that was full of flames. On the contrary, it further boosted the raging flames. The fierce aura was tightly locked on Jacob before it reached.
Jacob had no way to dodge. Facing the inexplicably coercive Scorching Dragon, there was also a strong unwillingness in his heart. The transparent dragon body burst out with a rolling green flame as he charged at the Scorching Dragon.
In the blink of an eye, the crystal dragon braving the green flame and the flame-shrouded Scorching Dragon slammed into each other in midair. The entire [Crystal Territory] shook, and huge cracks appeared on the frozen ocean. The frozen crystal pillars towering over the sky broke and collapsed one after another. Countless shattered ice and crystals were flying in the sky.
On the surface, the crystal dragon had successfully resisted the power of the Scorching Dragon’ both sides were evenly matched on the same level. However, Jacob now knew that this Scorching Dragon was more terrifying than he imagined. The innate-like pressure was actually not an illusion. Not only that, his power of the [Crystal Territory] was also restrained to its lowest point under the destructive chill of soul pressure.
His body and territory were both subject to innate restraint similar to the rank nature. This was the first time in tens of thousands of years of life. Although Jacob was incredibly angry, the situation was quite bad now. His body was pushed upward by the Scorching Dragon. There were more and more crystal pillars collapsed. The [Crystal Territory] was on the verge of collapse.
“Crack!” Numerous tiny cracks appeared on the body of the crystal dragon. The injuries suffered during the battle for the silver box had not yet healed. Then, he was severely injured by Catherine and Paglio. Now facing the huge pressure of the Scorching Dragon, his body was no longer able to resist the load anymore.
Suddenly, only a huge sound was heard.
The sky, the frozen seashore, the towering crystal pillars… all shattered in an instant.
In mid-air, a huge crystal-clear dragon body howled miserably and flew away. Shattered scales and crystals continued to fall along the way while the flame-shrouded Scorching Dragon rose wildly into the sky, seeming to smirk at the escaping opponent.
The biggest thing in Jacob’s heart at the moment was not hatred, but fear.
This enemy is simply my nemesis! More “nemesis” than the poison dragon, Paglio!
The first time I met this “Arthur”, my ancient rune slabs were stolen and I was seriously injured by that woman.
When I met this guy for the second time, I was damaged severely by Paglio and the wealth I had accumulated painstakingly was also taken away.
The third time I met this enemy, he was neither with the No. 1 womanin the Demon Realm, nor the old enemy 2,000 years ago. He is alone. It stood to reason that it is my best opportunity for revenge for the previous humiliation. However, I never knew before the fight that this nemesis has already had the strength to almost kill me. — If I didn’t explode my territory to divert the Scorching Dragon, perhaps I would have been torn apart by the Scorching Dragon. Now that I’m full of wounds, I would definitely be dead if don’t escape.
Looking at the crystal dragon disappearing into the sky, Chen Rui lost his strength and sat down slowly on the ground. It was not that he didn’t want to take advantage of the victory to kill Jacob, but the [Scorching Dragon Kill] just now had successfully burst out most of his indigestible power. All the remaining soul power happened to be canceled when the crystal dragon exploded the territory power with serious injuries.
In other words, the soul power that wanted to possess his body was finally consumed by the [Star Devouring]+ [Star Conversion] + power exhaustion in the battle. If Jacob did not escape or return now, then Chen Rui would be the one running away. This was a battle where each party was fearful of the other.
Now that the crystal dragon fled in fear, Chen Rui just relaxed and slowly adjusted the newly acquired power in his body.
The “inheritance” this time could be regarded as a narrow escape. To be precise, the harvest was equally tremendous.
Obviously, the so-called inheritance was just a scheme. The previous “volcanic cave trial” should be a scenario to test the host. If he failed, he might be eliminated and dead. After completing the cave mission, his eligibility of accepting the inheritance (In fact, it was possession of the body) was determined. The latter gentle treatment was actually the beginning of body possession. In the process of indulging in it, the consciousness would be undefended and easily taken away. It was a pity that the soul of Demi-God did not expect that there was something imbalance like the Super System. As a result, it became Chen Rui’s “nutrient.” It was also fortunate that Chen Rui used the battle with Jacob to vent the excessive power. Otherwise, with his Demon Emperor-level physique, he would definitely be unable to “digest” the Demi-God-level soul. Even if he didn’t explode, he would be swallowed by Shura’s consciousness.
In the Super System status bar, the comprehensive strength value had become A+, peak stage of the Demon Emperor!
This bitterness was not in vain. Chen Rui was delighted. When his consciousness noticed the “A+”, it showed specific values, Physique: A+, strength: A+, Spirit: S+, and Speed : A+.
What’s going on? Chen Rui was almost stunned by the sudden excitement. He did feel that his soul had expanded countless times. This growth was manifested in the spirit power. Unfortunately, he was not a magician, otherwise his attack power would directly grow. Even so, the benefits of the qualitative change of spirit power were considerably good. In fact, he could predict Jacob’s attacks just now because of this spirit power.
Chen Rui sensed something different in his body, and he suddenly realized it. It turned out that in addition to the powers vented in the battle, the Demi-God soul of the alchemy civilization actually caused a qualitative change in his spirit power. Meanwhile, what really improved his physical power and made him climb to the Demon Emperor later stage was that trace of Demi-God power that Satan once implanted in his body. Under the influence of the same Demi-God level and much greater soul, Satan’s trace of power had been completely absorbed.
In this way, a hidden danger of his body was also removed. What should I do in the future for [Dual Training]? Not to worry, there is still a vast soul power in [Star Devouring] that hasn’t been converted by [Star Conversion]. I can also do it by mating to benefit my own women.
In addition to the enhancement of strength, another big gain was undoubtedly the comprehension of the fourth territory [Winter Territory]. Completing [Winter Territory] was Chen Rui’s long-cherished wish, but unfortunately, he had never been able to find a proper approach previously. This trial was a struggle without using the Super System, which gave him the best opportunity to practice. Especially in the end, facing the life and death moment going against the greatsword monster, he accurately grasped the wonderful realization. This realization was further practiced in the subsequent battle with Jacob.
[Winter Territory] was inspired by Shura’s destructive power. The ice seal and termination were the essence of this territory.
The most important reason he could cast it to supress the [Crystal Territory] was that he used the pressure of the [Crystal Territory] and the explosion of the Demi-God level soul power. In some kind of accidental collision, the [Winter Territory] perfectly integrated with the trace of Demi-God level soul law. So, the 4 territories were finally completed.
With the absorption of Demi-God’s soul, some remaining fragments of consciousness were also absorbed. It was impossible for him to ponder on it in the previous battle, but now he could slowly look into it.
In these fragments of consciousness, Chen Rui gained many precious memories. The so-called “trial” illusion was actually a territory kingdom, but it was incomplete. It was left by the master of the soul before his death.
Everything in the territory kingdom could be said to be real scenes of the dream. The gains of realization and strength could be retained. It was similar to the training ground of the Super System. The difference was that once the mission failed, he would be truly killed under the power of the rule.
Although the offense and defense sides seen in the trial were simulated by the power of the territory kingdom, they were not fictitious. The name of the crystal demonic beast was crystal leopard, and the name of the giant crystal beast was crystal dragon (Coincidence?). The name of mega mecha was assembled puppets, plus the lamp spirits, which were all products of the ancient alchemy civilization.
As for the enemy in the cave… The little monster was called gap demon, the long horned demon monster was called berserk demon, the flame woman was called blazing flame witch, the greatsword monster was called abyss lord, and the maternal body that produced the monsters was called brood. These terrifying monsters were collectively called the Abyss Family.
Among the memory fragments, there was also a scene where countless abyss monsters were frantically attacking an alchemy civilization castle. Defenders such as attack weapons which were similar to magic crystal cannon, assembled puppets, crystal dragons and others could not stop the enemies that were all over the place. The originally impenetrable castles were gradually swarmed by the tide of abyss monsters.
This was just a fragment of the world of alchemy civilization which was destroyed by the abyss monsters. The master of the soul absorbed by Chen Rui used his last power to control the damaged castle sinking into the ground before the destruction of the civilization. The body that was already in danger was annihilated while the soul fell into a long sleep.
For some years, the broken castle that could automatically absorb energy finally recovered a little energy. Some of the lamp spirits were resurrected. They used a kind of underground yuan mineral to start accumulating energy, and they followed the order of the soul before it fell asleep to find a suitable “inheritor”.
It was a sad case that the soul found a freak like Chen Rui. As a result, he was swallowed instead of possessing Chen Rui. Although Little Chen took an arrow in the knee, he was finally blessed after he survived the catastrophe. Not only did he gain unexpected strength, but he also completed Sicali’s mission.
What was more surprising was that the obtained memory fragments also contained a lot of knowledge and experience of the ancient alchemy civilization including pharmaceutics and mechanics. Although it was not very complete, most of them were now lost knowledge. For alchemists, it was more precious than any wealth.
When he was excited, he saw a group of the lamp spirits cautiously approaching. Under the leader of Gensha, they folded their hands on their chests and knelt down on one knee, “Master.”
To be recognized by the lamp spirits, it seems that this “inheritance” is a real success. Chen Rui’s eyes accidentally noticed the lamp spirits’ bosoms, and inexplicably thought of some absurd situation in the illusion. His heart was hot, and he shook his head vigorously to get rid of the distracting thoughts.
“Let’s go to the ruins. I promised Genie to resurrect her.”
According to the memory fragment, the Abyss Family still lurked somewhere in the Demon Realm 🤔. But what does the Abyss Family have to do with Satan🤨? Were they the same forces? Or Satan and the alchemy civilization were in an alliance against the Abyss Family? Also, could the current crystal dragon be the mutated descendant of the old crystal dragon🤔🤔🤔? Hmmm, too many mysteries in this chapter…

These Abyss family members remind me of Inferno castle type from the game Heroes of Might & Magic V, with the exception of final Brood.
Truly too many mysteries in these chapters… I will predict that the Abyss Family will be a danger for the whole Demon Realm later? I really hope he will return soon. I like reading about his woman and friends fighting, but I can’t take more than a bit and I just want the MC to return and kick ass xD
