Both peak stage of the Demon Overlord did not take action, but 2 terrifying breaths had completely locked on Chen Rui. Chen Rui had no doubt that as long as he made a move, he would inevitably be killed at a thunderous speed.
“Are you from the Bloodfall? Or from the Dark Moon?”
The first to speak was the Demon Overlord from the great demon family on the left. His face was old, his hair and beard were all white, and he seemed weak, but his hands looked very white; these did not match his age. Chen Rui was most vigilant of this opponent, even more than the Demon Overlord of the royal family who was only middle-aged in appearance.
Due to limited talents, it was difficult for ordinary demons to break through their own bottleneck. The higher the level, the greater the proportion of the royal family. It was Chen Rui’s first time to see a non-royal powerhouse at the peak stage of the Demon Overlord. This type of powerhouse did not have the talents and strengths of the royal family, but they were the generation of great perseverance and great wisdom. Their combat skills and experience were definitely quite terrifying.
Sure enough, the old man hit the key point when he spoke.
“The Dark Moon Red Blood Legion deputy legion commander, Aguile.” Chen Rui had completely calmed down as he bowed slightly to both of them in neither lowly nor arrogant manner.
“It turns out to be someone from the Dark Moon.” The old man nodded, and a bloody light flashed across his red eyes. His middle finger suddenly flicked, and a strong sharp qi was launched toward Chen Rui. The sharp qi’s speed was terrifying. A sharp sound of whistling through the sky sounded just before reaching him.
The old man at the peak stage of the Demon Overlord actually took advantage of Chen Rui’s salute to make a killing move stealthily!
Chen Rui’s attention had always been highly concentrated. When the old man’s power was concentrated on his fingers, his spirit power had already captured the possible trajectory of the shot, so he moved in an instant to avoid this sneak attack.
“Sir’s strength is far better than me. What are you worrying about in such a hurry to attack?”
The royal family’s Demon Overlord replied, “It is enough to know that you are from the Dark Moon. Do we need to talk nonsense with a dying ant?”
When Chen Rui just finished teleporting, the old man’s fingerflick was launched again at high speed; Chen Rui was prepared long ago. While speaking, his hands glowed with a faint light and drew soft ripples to defend it.
The high-speed sharp qi seemed to be stuck in a quagmire as it suddenly slowed down.
The old man and the royal family’s Demon Overlord were both surprised because the enemy who had only the Demon Emperor breath not only resisted the fingerflick power of the peak stage of the Demon Overlord, but he also “reflected” the sharp qi back to the royal family Demon Overlord in a mysterious way.
If it was before leaving the Dark Moon, it would be difficult to keep up with this level of high-speed attack with Chen Rui’s reaction speed even with the skills of [Royal Star Transformation] and [Star Diversion]. However, during this period of time, he not only obtained the Demi-God-level soul power and transformed his spirit power to S-level, but he also had valuable experience in fighting the abyss lord- Although it was only 2 slashes, after that kind of near-death experience, Chen Rui showed unprecedented calmness and steadiness physically and mentally when facing the enemy of the peak stage of the Demon Overlord again.
The current [Star Diversion] incorporated the soft water power that he learned from Catherine. It had greater power and more precise control.
Seeing that sharp qi was about to slash the throat of the royal family Demon Overlord, a palm with a faint black light blocked it. When the sharp qi slashed the palm, it actually made a metallic sound. The royal family Demon Overlord felt a pain in his palm. He frowned slightly, flipped his palm, and a giant palm phantom appeared in the air, pressing like a mountain toward Chen Rui.
However, just like the sharp qi, the giant palm flew back to the old man strangely as it just touched the enemy. The old man felt the strong pressure from the giant palm. He flicked his fingers continuously, launching countless sharp qi to split the giant palm into pieces.
In the split second, the 3 had exchanged hits countless times. The dazzling flames in the secret vault flickered quickly, mixing with endless sharp sounds and shocks. Fortunately, the room where the artifact was placed was extremely sturdy. Even the power of the peak stage of the Demon Overlord could only cause a small crack.
The evenly matched situation surprised the royal family Demon Overlord and the old man, but Chen Rui knew that [Star Diversion] had only 10 seconds effect and was about to end, then the paper tiger would appear in its original form, so he immediately spoke.
“Wait a minute! I’m not afraid of fighting or death. I just hope to say a few words before that because it is related to the destiny of this artifact… and even the destiny of the entire empire!”
If it were a few seconds ago, both the peak stage Demon Overlords would not even bother to talk nonsense with such a weak person, just like the old man suddenly took action just now. However, Chen Rui’s strength was far beyond their expectations now- With this power, this kind of calmness, and the ability to perceive the existence of both of us previously, how could he be merely at the Demon Emperor?
Both of them decided that the enemy in front of them was definitely a powerhouse pretending to be weak to take advantage of them. After exchanging a glance at each other, they finally stopped.
“1 minute,” the old man said.
At this time, [Star Diversion] happened to end. Chen Rui secretly felt relieved. He shook his head, “1 minute is too little, I can’t finish it. Let’s do 5 minutes, okay?”
The 2 Demon Overlords had faintly regarded him as a powerful enemy. Upon hearing this lowly bargaining, they couldn’t help showing a strange look, but there was no objection in the end.
“The Dark Moon Red Blood Legion deputy legion commander, Aguile.”
With the same self-introduction, the 2 Demon Overlords did not act rashly this time, and they said their names which was regarded as a certain respect for this opponent.
“Royal elder, Oliver. Lucifer.”
“The elder family, Cowen. Toro.”
Chen Rui knew that this white-haired old man was actually one of the strongest elders in the elder family, Old Cowen of the Toro Family.
Another intermediate stage of the Demon Overlord from the Toro Family, Vanim, once assassinated the Dark Shadow Empire’s Third General Crawford who visited the Dark Moon at the auction. Later, after being captured by Zola’s magic, he switched sides to the Dark Moon. It could be said to be a great humiliation to the Toro Family. Therefore, after hearing that Chen Rui came from the Dark Moon, the old man did not hesitate to kill him.
Obsidian took away a lot of powerful elders this time. Oliver and Cowen were the main force in the elder family behind the capital.
“Both sirs, I came to the secret vault this time for the Sword of Fallen Angel.”
It was almost nonsense, but the following words surprised Oliver and Cowen.
“I’m entrusted by the owner of the Sword of Fallen Angel to take away the artifact that should belong to her.”
The surprise of Oliver and Cowen was only fleeting, then it changed to disdain- What is the Sword of Fallen Angel? Lucifer Royal Family’s supreme artifact, one of the Demon Realm’s 7 artifacts! Since the death of the Lord of Midnight Sun 300 years ago, no royal family members, including Regent Obsidian, has been recognized by the artifact. “Aguile” actually said that he is entrusted by the owner of Sword of Fallen Angel now. This kind of lie is so stupid that even children will not believe it!
“This is indeed an unbelievable thing. I myself had this doubt when I first received the mission, but the answer will be revealed soon.” Chen Rui slowly took out something from the “space ring”. When this item appeared, the Sword of Fallen Angel which had been floating in the air without responding, began to emit a faint light!
Oliver and Cowen were simultaneously shocked. They had guarded the secret vault for many years. Naturally, they knew how many attempts Regent Obsidian had made in the hope of being recognized by the Sword of Fallen Angel. However, the Sword of Fallen Angel was still asleep and did not move at all, even repelling anyone approaching. However, today a miracle suddenly appeared, and they witnessed it personally!
Both their eyes focused on the item in Chen Rui’s hand, a small bottle with some red liquid in it. It seemed to be blood.
When Chen Rui approached the Sword of Fallen Angel further with the small bottle, the Sword of Fallen Angel not only flashed, but it also made a buzzing sound. The sword body began to shake; it seemed very “excited”.
The Sword of Fallen Angel could not be kept in the storage warehouse. Although Chen Rui wanted to take the sword and run away, he also understood that everything had a limit. If he got closer, it was difficult to guarantee that the 2 guardians would not take action desperately. So, he stopped and plugged the bottle.
The buzz of Sword of Fallen Angel really stopped, and the previous silence was restored.
Oliver and Cowen stared at the small bottle full of blood, and their breathing became heavy. After a while, Old Cowen finally spoke, “This bottle…”
Chen Rui said unhurriedly, “This is obviously a magic bottle which can keep the blood fresh…”
Who’s asking about the bottle! Even the royal family elder, Oliver, who had always been able to calm down, couldn’t help but shouted, “Whose blood is in this bottle?!”
Chen Rui’s face suddenly became solemn as he said the answer, “Lord of Midnight Sun’s granddaughter, Princess Royal of the Empire, Lord of the Dark Moon Estate, and also my fiancee- Shea. Lucifer! “
Although the 2 peak stage of the Demon Overlords had roughly guessed this answer earlier, they still seemed shocked after getting the verbal confirmation.
For 300 years, Regent Obsidian has worked hard to try to awaken the Sword of Fallen Angel to no avail. Now a small bottle of blood from Princess Royal Shea can cause such a strong reaction from the Sword of Fallen Angel. The choice of artifact is already obvious. No one can deny this fact!
However, Oliver and Cowen would not expect that this blood was not from Princess Royal Shea at all, but it was Chen Rui’s own “fresh” blood!
After releasing some blood, he took it out through the storage warehouse as a cover-up. In other words, the so-called blood recognition was a lie after all. In fact, the Sword of Fallen Angel had been sealed by powerful ancient runes. Even if Shea really came here, she couldn’t be recognized.
When Chen Rui came to this secret vault with Obsidian as “Charles”, he spent a lot of time and effort to “help” Obsidian “crack” the Sword of Fallen Angel. At that time, Chen Rui had the thought of stealing the Sword of Fallen Angel. Unfortunately, he couldn’t have it both ways. He couldn’t get a chance after all. Finally, he chose to swindle the huge sum of fundraising money.
After drawing a pie full of hope for the poor Royal Highness Regent, “Charles” “sacrificed heroically” in the battle with Broc as he was unwilling to accept the solicitation of the Bloodfall organization. His covet for the artifact was forced to stop at that time until he came here again today.
What really caused the strange reaction of the Sword of Fallen Angel was actually the trigger of the seal of the ancient runes that was planned by Chen Rui previously.
For the Sword of Fallen Angel which had been silent for 300 years, this strong reaction was enough proof that the artifact had recognized the “owner” of the blood, Princess Royal Shea!
Would the 2 Demon Overlord powerhouses change their side? Are they loyal to the Sword of Fallen Angel or to Obsidian?
