In the [Wheel of Hera Territory], the terrifying black hole frantically devoured everything around it. Some guards or fearless warriors who entered the hall later were devoured by the black hole, leaving no corpse.
Sicali had continuously launched more than a dozen methods of attack or defense, and none of them could stop this terrifying devouring power. The black hole was not devouring ordinary power, but the faith power he had accumulated over the years!
The faith power allowed Sicali to advance from the ordinary Demon Emperor level to the Demon Overlord level by leaps and bounds, then he had stabilized the early stage in less than 5 years. Recently, he seemed to be able to break through to the intermediate stage. It was not an exaggeration to say that he was a talented genius to be able to reach this stage in 5 years. With the special function of Wheel of Hera and the gift of a certain “master”, it was only a matter of time to reach the peak stage of Demon Overlord. Perhaps he even had a chance to become the legendary Demi-God.
Sicali had always been laying low and a fence sitter to confuse the capital because he wanted to be well-prepared until he could soar in the future and shock the entire Demon Realm! Once a certain plan was successful, whether the Dark Moon or Obsidian, they must surrender to Sicali. Not only the Fallen Angel Empire, but even the Demon Realm would be below him!
What Sicali did not expect was that he encountered such an enemy today, and the faith power that he accumulated through hard work had actually become the opponent’s “food”!
The light in the hall flickered, and the upright pillars became curved under the horrifying swallowing force of the black hole. The image was very strange, and the entire territory began to tremble constantly.
Sicali’s heart trembled even harder. The Wheel of Hera was his greatest reliance, and it was also an important source of power for a great secret. Now that he was about to lose even the Wheel of Hera, how could he not be heartbroken?
The black hole seemed to devour everything. The power of the [Wheel of Hera Territory] was already diminishing to an extreme point. Sicali could do nothing about it. The only thing he could do was to try his best to protect himself from being devoured by the black hole for the time being.
After the violent shaking, the huge space of the hall returned to its original state. The pillars and many facilities on the ground disappeared. The black hole finally gradually shrank, and the devouring power quickly weakened.
“No!” Sicali let out a heartbreaking scream as his orifices were bleeding. His territory and part of the soul power was integrated with the Wheel of Hera. Now the Wheel of Hera had been completely swallowed, not only his faith power disappeared, even his body and soul had also been seriously injured. Compared with trauma, what was even more evident was his inner fear and regret- The hope of ascending the summit of power and position, and the mysterious master’s order… It was all over!
After the black hole disappeared, the terrifying enemy in black armor appeared in front of him. When Sicali looked at the 2 strange eyes behind the visor, his soul almost had the illusion of annihilation. While he was in panic, the black armor began to change again, returning to its original star-like color and style. The destructive breath contained in his eyes had disappeared and turned into sword-like anger.
Chen Rui was enraged at the moment mainly because of Shura. Every time he activated the [Royal Star Transformation], Shura’s willpower would be greatly enhanced and it was difficult to suppress. This time he was also mentally prepared initially, but he didn’t expect Shura actually came out unexpectedly at the huge price of burning will.
Burning will was similar to the exhaustion technique of burning vitality. As a result, Shura used this desperate method to temporarily dominate the body in order to devour the Wheel of Hera containing the faith power in one breath.
Chen Rui could sense that Shura, who had devoured the Wheel of Hera, had a great setback of consciousness and seemed to fall into a long sleep. It seemed that he would not pop out and create troubles for quite some time. However, he felt more and more uneasy in his heart. Shura was not a fool. He must be planning for something after paying such a large price to devour the Wheel of Hera.
Chen Rui suddenly recalled that when he was fighting Nero, Shura devoured Nero’s flesh and power, but the Demon Overlord power absorbed from Nero was not used by the [Star Conversion] or his body, but disappeared. It’s the same for the Demi-God soul power devoured previously. I’m afraid it is a big hidden danger.
These thoughts were only fleeting in Chen Rui’s mind. There was no time to think because there was still an important enemy to deal with.
When Chen Rui’s mind shifted, countless translucent stars appeared around Sicali’s body, and his strength dropped sharply. Sicali had previously seen Chen Rui activating this strange territory when he dealt with the fearless warriors, but he did not expect it to have such a strong weakening effect. His severely injured body could hardly gather resistance. Without waiting for him to respond, Chen Rui’s attack had arrived, and the overlapping power burst out like a huge wave. Sicali had no choice but to activate [Dark Flame] and parried with his arms. Because of the loss of faith power and [Wheel of Hera Territory], his strength was greatly reduced. His whole body was shocked by the punch. There were light sounds of continuous explosions in his body. His red armor showed a lot of cracks. This time there was no way to heal automatically as before.
Sicali knew that his current state was definitely not the enemy’s opponent. When he gritted his teeth, a red transparent crystal bead appeared in his palm which instantly blossomed into a blood-red flower shape.
That flower! Chen Rui’s pupils contracted. For him who had experienced the trial of alchemy civilization inheritance, this flower was simply too familiar, and he had had such a “flower” before. Judging from the strange breath that the flower exudes, it is actually the Flower of Abyss!
The scene of the final battle in the trial emerged in Chen Rui’s mind. The endless ocean of monsters, brood, blazing flame demon women, abyss lord… He could not help but shudder. At this time, the strange red flower in Sicali’s hand had split apart. A red mist covered his body. His body began to twist and swell rapidly. He roared like a beast.
In the blink of an eye, a half-demon half-beast monster appeared in front of his eyes. This monster was about 2 meters high with red eyes and faint traces of Sicali. His arms with sharp bone spurs soared to the length of touching the ground, and a flame-like red light emanated from his pale black skin. A berserk breath exuded all over his body.
The monster roared wildly and rushed toward Chen Rui with terrifying flames from his arms. Chen Rui did not panic. The surging overlapping force changed, and the wave-like power turned into lake-like softness which calmly greeted him.
After Sicali mutated by using the Flower of Abyss, his strength should have surpassed the opponent, especially his attack power was extremely strong. Even if the opponent’s methods were strange, he could still win for sure. However, the opponent’s defense methods were extremely mysterious. That berserk attack seemed to have fallen into an endless quagmire. His power was being restrained, making him feel extremely aggrieved.
For non-Abyss Family, although the Flower of Abyss could trigger powerful forces, the side effects afterward were also very large. Both the body and soul would suffer injuries that were difficult to repair in a short period of time, and their strength would be greatly reduced.
Sicali wanted to use the Flower of Abyss desperately to capture the enemy who devoured the Wheel of Hera as an explanation to his master, but unexpectedly he was in a more passive situation. How would he expect that although the Abyss Family had disappeared for tens of thousands of years, the enemy in front of him had extremely rich combat experience with the Abyss Family. He even inherited the soul of the ancient civilization which let him be well versed in the weaknesses of the Abyss monsters.
The soft power used by Chen Rui was an imitation of Catherine’s subtle means of leveraging and unloading in the battle at the Crystal Valley back then. In terms of attack power, it was not as strong as the surging overlapping power, but it was a good method for defending and restraining the enemy. Sicali’s attack method and vibe were very similar to the berserk demons. Similar mutations should have occurred. In the trial space, Chen Rui once used this kind of soft power and overlapping power to kill dozens of berserk demons. Therefore, he was familiar and handy when using it against Sicali now.
Sicali became more anxious as he fought, knowing that unless he had an overwhelming absolute power, his own “power” would definitely be unable to break through the opponent’s “skills.” What was terrible was that if this continued, the Flower of Abyss’ time limit was about to end. By then, his power would be greatly reduced, and he could only wait to be slaughtered.
Thinking of this, Sicali felt timid. Hesuddenly had an intention to retreat. When he was distracted, Chen Rui’s keen spirit power caught the flaw. After removing the force, he changed the defense stance into the offense stance. . The [Aura Blade] cut into Sicali’s shoulders. Even though the hardness of Sicali’s arm had increased several times after the mutation, he couldn’t resist the blow when his power was weak. His whole arm was only dangling by a layer of epidermis, and it was almost cut off by the root. He covered his arms and ran out of the hall with all his strength.
Naturally, Chen Rui would not let the culprit go. He pursued Sicali closely. Both their speed was very fast, and the guards along the way had no time to stop him. Sicali fled in any path he could in panic. He didn’t run to the exit of the cave outside, but he kept running toward the depths of the base.
While pursuing and fleeing, Sicali was more shocked when felt that the effect of the Flower of Abyss was rapidly diminishing. He ran rampantly all the way.
Chen Rui kept pursuing Sicali into a huge cave. To his surprise, this cave was actually a dead end. The light of the whole cave was dim. There was a platform in the center which seemed to be some kind of altar structure. The whole cave was full of strong bloody smell.
Sicali fled toward the altar desperately. Unexpectedly, his speed suddenly slowed down, and his mutated body had returned to his original state. The original effect of the Flower of Abyss had completely faded. Sicali wanted to cry but there were no tears. Before he had time to react, Chen Rui’s figure appeared behind him instantly, striking his neck with a hand knife.
Sicali’s strength was greatly reduced. He fainted without even making a sound. His shoulder injury could not be suppressed, and the blood spread quickly on the ground. Chen Rui instinctively felt the strangeness of this cave. As he was about to grab Sical to leave, the light in the cave gradually brightened. The scene changed abnormally, and there was rolling blood evaporating all around like a terrifying blood river.
Illusion? Chen Rui quickly focused his mind, but instead of disappearing, the blood river changed again. The transpired blood river turned into blood-red molten magma, and the surrounding air was filled with suffocating suppression. Even his line of sight became distorted in the high temperature.
Seeing these familiar scenes, Chen Rui’s expression finally changed when he thought of the previous situation of Sicali.
A terrifying destructive breath surged in the distance as if it had discovered the intruder.
The identity of the master is going to reveal soon?
