The fiery red figure was a “horse” with a black body and a single horn on its head. The mane and tail of the horse were like flames, and its 4 hooves were burning with real flames. The soldiers along the way seemed to be traumatized; one after another soldiers moved away from its path.
“Incubus Beast!” Many people exclaimed. Obsidian who was detoxifying could not help but raise his brows, and his eyes fell on the cloaked rider on the back of the Incubus Beast.
Incubus Beast was the horse demonic beasts unique to the Demon Realm. The speed and power were comparable to the unicorns of the human world. They were immune to all mind control. Individuals with a mutated bloodline could also manipulate the Incubus Beast to use [Lightning]. Its greatest talent was [Terror], which could weaken the opponent’s combat power and fighting spirit. It was known as the Demon Realm’s most powerful ground mount.
Incubus Beast was extremely rare, and it was tameless by nature. It would rather die than surrender under normal circumstances. It was unexpected that this person had such a mount. Judging from the situation of the nearby electrocuted soldiers, it was even an Incubus Beast with a mutated bloodline!
The cloak of the rider flashed with a strange bright light. As he waved his hands, a large area of the capital soldiers within a range of tens of meters began to collapse into a state of weakness and chaos; some even killed each other. At the same time, countless huge vines appeared in the capital army which frantically attacked the nearby soldiers. The entire capital right wing fell into chaos. When the rider rode past the Dark Moon Army, that strange power became another feeling. The Dark Moon Army in the area felt that their injury was recovering quickly, and their energy became vigorous again as though they were reborn.
The soldiers recognized the rider riding the Incubus Beast, and their morale was greatly boosted. Initially, the capital army had a sharp drop in combat power due to some special reasons, now they were completely suppressed by the Dark Moon.
The Incubus Beast soared into the air. The cloaked rider seemed to be looking for something, and he soon discovered the situation in the central army. Seeing the collapsed Shea, the blood-stained Isabella and the almost unconscious Olypheus, the eyes behind the visor suddenly burned. He urged the Incubus Beast to fly toward the central army quickly.
Chen Rui didn’t know what happened previously. Judging from the current scene, Shea and the others must have experienced unimaginable dangers. In the past few days, he rode the little black horse day and night to rush toward this place, but unfortunately, he still failed to catch up with the war. Fortunately, Shea and the others were still alive, and he finally made it.
Obsidian had a cruel smile on his face when he thought of Shea’s resolute phrase “I only belong to a man in this life”. Aguile? Shea’s fiance? He defeated the Red Spirit Estate and the Blue Lava Estate in the war of lords? He should be the Demon Emperor-level strength at most. It’s just right that I can eliminate these threatening guys all together!
At this time, the poison in Obsidian’s body was finally suppressed, and the green color on his left hand became a lot paler. With a wave of his hand, the purple sword on the ground had returned to his hand. The sword burst with [Dark Flame], turning into dozens of huge beasts that charged toward Shea quickly. If this blow was successful, even if Shea was now at the Demon Overlord level, she would be eliminated.
The sound of a sonic boom in the distance sounded at the same time. In the blink of an eye, there was already a figure in front of Shea. A soft water-like power was fluctuating in his hand which glowed with a faint light, and he waved it toward the huge beasts.
The huge beasts madly slammed the figure blocking at the front, but under some mysterious power, they actually turned around unbelievably and rushed toward Obsidian who was in the air.
Obsidian was taken aback. He blocked with his purple sword, and black flames scattered around. After the violent concussion, all the huge beasts disappeared. It was obviously uncomfortable to be counter-attacked by his own ultimate move. Obsidian’s helmet and 2 shoulder armors were already completely shattered. Murderous intent had filled his eyes.
At this time, the little black horse, Incubus Beast, that rushed over had already carried Isabella and Olypheus behind it, and it ran far away at the command of Chen Rui. Obsidian did not stop it because his gaze was fixed on Shea. Shea rose into the air under the protection of Chen Rui, holding a longsword high in her hand.
The tail of this sword was a purple gem, and the quillons were 2 back-to-back angels. The body of the sword was white and engraved with 2 strange marks. The simplicity was full of mysterious breath.
Obsidian could tell the name and characteristics of this sword even with his eyes closed. This sword had been with him for 300 years, but he, the legal owner, had never been recognized by it.
However, in Shea’s hands, this unapproachable artifact, which had always been repelling everyone, actually shone a strong light that he had never seen before when it was in his hands.
In an instant, the entire battlefield felt a strong and unstoppable aura.
Shea’s clear voice sounded through the battlefield, “Rebellious Obsidian, the Sword of Fallen Angel is here!”
For a moment, almost everyone stopped. Countless gazes focused on the sword that exuded the powerful breath in the hands of Shea in midair.
The highest artifact in the empire!
The Sword of Fallen Angel!
“Impossible!” Obsidian shouted hysterically, “Why?! Why?!”
Even if Obsidian was usually gloomy, he finally couldn’t help but lose his composure at this time. For 300 years, he exhausted all the methods and he was rejected by the Sword of Fallen Angel every time. Why, this woman who is only 20 years old, can be recognized by the artifact by just being the granddaughter of the Midnight Sun?
The lords, generals and soldiers were all shocked at this moment. The artifact that represents an empire has been passed down for hundreds of thousands of years. Almost everyone knows its appearance and characteristics. Judging from Obsidian’s attitude, this sword is the genuine one!
Only the true ruler of the empire can be recognized by the supreme artifact! So… this is the artifact’s choice!
Shea held up the Sword of Fallen Angel, “Our sharp swords should not be aimed at our own people! Our blood should not flow under our own swords!”
As soon as this sentence came out, most of the soldiers, including the capital army, lost their fighting spirit.
Obsidian felt the soldiers’ psychological changes, and he involuntarily had a huge fear as if what he had been worried about had become a reality. He roared wildly, “Damn artifact! Damn woman! You all shall die!”
The flames suddenly burned in the air, and a sea of fire engulfed Shea and Chen Rui.
Obsidian, who was almost in madness, had activated his territory desperately.
This was a world of flames. The land was burning, the sky was burning; everything was burning. The only liquid was the black molten lava that could be seen everywhere. The world was full of destructive suffocation and high temperature. Shea and Chen Rui simultaneously felt that the power in their body was continuously disintegrated and disappeared under the burning as if they themselves were the fuel of the flame.
Obsidian stood in the distance, and the [Holy Wings] behind him had turned into black flame wings. There were 6 pairs, like the true wings of the Fallen Angel Empire in the legend. His purple eyes were full of scary blood veins.
“I’m the true owner of the Sword of Fallen Angel! You rebels are going to die! I want to suck all your blood and use your flesh and blood as a sacrifice!”
After something that had been suppressed in his heart for 300 years completely collapsed, Obsidian showed his lunatic side. The flames between the sky and the ground began to rise and fall rapidly with the emotions of the controller. Giants emerged from the lava one after another. It was 5 meters tall, and it exuded the terrifying heat that swarmed toward the 2 of them.
Chen Rui’s mind shifted, and the flame world in his eyes began to change rapidly. After he re-realized the Super System, many functions were unprecedentedly strengthened. In other words, Chen Rui had truly mastered these functions. For example, the original [Analysis] ability of [Analytical Eyes] could only show simple attributes and some kind of danger prompt. The present [Analytical Eyes] already had the “function” of analysis. The power fluctuations in the territory, the attributes of the structure, and even the strengths and weaknesses were all at a glance.
“Shea, protect yourself. Don’t use the Sword of Fallen Angel.”
Shea nodded, and she did not ask why she couldn’t use the Sword of Fallen Angel. Another long sword from the storage ring appeared in her hand. In fact, she had previously felt that the light and biting aura of this sword were not so simple, it seemed… out of her control. All she could do was to trust him without reservation which was a kind of tacit understanding and trust.
10 Demon King-level goldmen suddenly appeared around Shea in a circle. At the same time, Chen Rui’s figure left Shea’s side and appeared not far from Obsidian. The lava giants had already pounced on Shea, but the surrounding goldmen were prepared for it. The goldmen were knocked down almost in the blink of an eye, but they stood up stubbornly and continued to fight. Those lava giants were extremely hot, and the goldmen had already begun to melt. Shea’s eyes lit up in black and white. With a stroke of the long sword in her hand, a halo appeared around her body, stopping the lava giants from approaching.
Chen Rui didn’t turn his head to look at Shea’s side. The light on his body continuously lit up as he activated the [Hot Blood Halo] of Mystic Jade Armor and the [Battle Enhancement] of [Link Enhancement].
There were 2 types of [Link Enhancement]: Permanent [Star-level Enhancement] and the temporary [Battle Enhancement]. [Star-level Enhancement] was very expensive and required 100,000 faith crystals. Because [Royal Star Transformation] was frequently used. It consumed a lot of faith crystals. Since Shura swallowed the Wheel of Hera, the growth of faith crystals had been slower and slower for some reasons, so he couldn’t get the required number of faith crystals yet.
There was a mask at Chen Rui’s visor. In the next second, the flame power between the sky and the ground surged toward him uncontrollably. The terrifying temperature suddenly dropped a lot, and the strength of the giants was also declining.
“Swallowing talent? Beelzebub?” Obsidian felt the rapid loss of spirit power in the territory, and he suddenly thought of a certain rumor about Aguile and sneered. This swallowing almost emptied the spirit power of this territory, but the Demon Emperor’s territory power was not a match for the Demon Overlord level which gradually began to replenish and recover as if it was a real world that was inexhaustible.
When he was in the Crystal Valley, Chen Rui used this trick to absorb Manu’s territory, but Manu’s territory was basically based on magic and spirit power, so he was greatly suppressed by the God-Eating Mask. The most important thing was that Catherine seized this opportunity to activate her own territory and injure Manu badly.
Without Catherine, Manu’s territory would automatically recover within a period of time.
When Obsidian’s territory power weakened, many more balls appeared all around. They spun in a strange rhythm. From a distance, they turned out to be stars that intertwined with the flame world.
The stars were filled with scorching heat and burning power that were different from the attributes of the flame world. The flames seemed to be continuously assimilated and absorbed by the stars.
Obsidian felt that his strength had been weakened tremendously, and he was secretly shocked. He had a brand new evaluation of Chen Rui’s power. How could a Demon Emperor reflect my fire beasts? How can he activate his territory freely in my [Fallen Flame World Territory]? Judging from the momentum, he is close to the peak stage of the Demon Overlord. (In fact, it was the result of [Royal Star Transformation] plus [Galaxy Territory] plus Mystic Jade Armor plus [Battle Enhancement]). “Aguile” must be the one who gave the Sword of Fallen Angel to Shea, so “Aguile” should be one of the culprits of the capital chaos.
Thinking of this, Obsidian’s hatred skyrocketed again. His figure appeared in front of Chen Rui, and he slashed with a sword. The 12 wings behind him were not decorations, but a transformation that was a combination of physical strength, vigor, and spirit power. It was already a bit close to the [Armor of Faith] of the territory kingdom which buff one’s own ability to the maximum. He had the confidence to fight even if the woman with horrifying magic power was in front of him.
But Obsidian did not know that the enemy who was “close to the peak stage of the Demon Overlord” in front of him had the real [Armor of Faith]. The Northsea in Chen Rui’s hand was rippling with ripples-like light patterns as it parried Obsidian’s flame sword. Under the bizarre effect of the light patterns, the flames on Obsidian’s purple sword were continuously being disintegrated. What was even more bizarre was that the swords on both sides had not collided once. Chen Rui parried the sword by diverting the force, making Obsidian unable to exert force.
This was obviously the result of Chen Rui’s control. This swordsmanship was realized from [Star Diversion] which incorporated some principles of “Tai Chi ” of another world, but Chen Rui was just an otaku before the crossover. He didn’t know anything about martial arts. Perhaps because of this, he could comprehend his own water swordsmanship with only a little “intention”. Although Chen Rui’s strength was inferior to Obsidian, he relied on the superior spirit power, coupled with Northsea Sword’s characteristics of attack acceleration and swordsmanship proficiency buff, he was in a stalemate with Obsidian for some time. He also became more familiar with the water swordsmanship in this actual combat.
Obsidian became more and more frustrated as he fought. The enemy’s power level is clearly similar to that of the black dragon girl which is far inferior to me, but he has plenty of experiences and strange means, which makes him difficult to deal with compared to the black dragon. It will not be advantageous for me if we continue this close combat.
Thinking of this, Obsidian’s 6 pairs of flame wings spread out, and he pulled the distance away. He pointed the purple sword with his black and white eyes flickering, the flames turned into countless light streams that flew toward Chen Rui one after another like meteors. This kind of pure energy attack could no longer be resolved with the water swordsmanship. Chen Rui attached Stridebug under his feet, and he flexibly dodged the flame meteors by relying on the trajectory of the [Analytical Eyes]’s analysis. Obsidian caught a glimpse of Shea surrounded by the flame giants. With a murderous intent, the sky full of meteors immediately turned to Shea’s direction.
Will this assault succeed? Or will Chen Rui save the beauty once again? Can they activate the Sword of Fallen Angel in this battle with Obsidian?
