Siren! The words of the Earth Elemental King pulled Chen Rui back from the memory of another world. Yes, these are sirens, not “mermaids.”
The beautiful and kind little mermaid in Andersen’s fairy tales should be based on the siren in Greek mythology. However, the siren in Greek mythology is not kind. Its appearance is a bit similar to the harpies in front of me. They often use their beautiful singing voice to seduce the sea ship to hit the rocks in order to eat the sailors. The story of the 3 siren sisters and the hero Odysseus is also very famous, but a myth is still a myth. I miss these stories, but the “mermaid” in front of me is the siren that I am about to face.
The siren did not have the agility and swiftness of the sea on land. They desperately tried to jump back into the sea, but there was a strange suction force on this island, and their body seemed to be heavier several times for no reason. They were almost unable to move while some were even struggling to breathe. On the other hand, Chen Rui didn’t feel the slightest change whether he was flying or walking. It could be seen that Moore had a very precise power control.
“The talented one you are looking for is there.”
Chen Rui looked in the direction that Moore pointed and saw a siren with long curly black wet hair hanging on her chest, blocking the well-proportioned chest. The skin on her body emitted a faint light like a flawless jade. From this angle, he could only see a small side of her face, but she still looked stunning.
This siren was still singing. Her singing had a strange power; the pain of nearby companions obviously alleviated a lot.
Moore waved his hand and brought the siren before him as though the land seemed to have teleporting magic. By only looking at the upper body, the sirens were very beautiful which were not inferior when compared with the Demon Realm’s most beautiful Asmodeus Royal Family. This siren was undoubtedly the most outstanding. She had a beautiful appearance, revealing a pure temperament. Especially her golden eyes were full of natural charm without pretentiousness just like her singing. However, there was a strong hostility in her eyes now.
“It should be the queen or princess of the siren.” Moore reminded Chen Rui when he saw the golden crystal between the eyebrows of this siren; the crystal of the ordinary sirens was usually red.
At this time, the remaining harpies in the sky screamed and dived down when they saw the queen being knocked down by the enemy. When they approached a certain height, they were immediately affected by the island’s gravity and fell to the ground one after another. The others didn’t dare to approach when they saw it. They were just screaming or ejecting mucus from a distance. Nonetheless, it was futile due to the gravity.
The harpies refused to disperse, hovering carefully in the air as they waited for the opportunity to attack while constantly making annoying hiss.
“I’ll leave it to you here. I’ll clean up all the harpies.” As Moore’s body gradually floated, the dense sand and stones around his body began to rotate around. When the Earth Elemental King raised his hands up to the sky, the spinning wind and sand suddenly turned into a berserk hurricane. The entire sky was shrouded in yellow wind and sand, or more accurately, it was like a super sandstorm.
The smoke and dust in the sky obscured almost all the sight. In the dust filled with sand, countless gravel condensed by the power of the purest earth elements moved at a high speed to become the deadliest weapon.
The harpies shrouded in the sandstorm couldn’t maintain their balance at all, let alone attack or escape. Under the terrifying power, they instantly became a sieve. The sirens and Chen Rui below could only hear screams in the whir.
“Don’t kill them!” The most beautiful siren stopped singing, barely struggled to get up under the effect of gravity, and let out a painful cry. It was actually the common language of the Demon Realm.
Her voice was like a plaintive lament, sad and moving. But Chen Rui who was wearing a God-Eating Mask just glanced at her faintly. The strength of this siren is only the early stage of the Demon Emperor, but her singing voice actually affected me who has the S-level spirit power. It is indeed quite amazing even if it is a mutated talent. The siren tribe really has superb talent.
The power of Earth Elemental King opened Chen Rui’s eyes. At the same time, 1 thing came to his mind. At the Town Lupin of the Blue Lava Estate back then, Paglio fought Dark Elemental King Hegel, then he fought the joined forces of the Dark Elemental King, the Water Elemental King, and the first general of the Bloody Empire under the pseudonym Bridget. He was injured and lost in the end. Judging from the strength displayed by Moore, although his power level is only the peak stage of the Demon Overlord, some means and understanding of power have exceeded the category of the peak stage of the Demon Overlord.
From this, it can be inferred that the Dark Elemental King has not recovered his true power. Otherwise, perhaps Paglio will fall short. The other Water Elemental King Lambost has obviously retained his strength and did not use all of them. Otherwise, if he delayed Paglio with all his strength that time, I might have died in Hegel’s hands.
The sand and dust in the air gradually dispersed. The bloody corpses fell to the ground. There were no longer harpies in the air; only feathers were flying all over the sky. Earth Elemental King had always been gentle and courteous like an honest gentleman in front of Chen Ru. Now facing the enemy, he had shown a decisive side. In addition to the dozens of the harpies on the ground, thousands of the harpies were all killed.
Harpy Queen hissed angrily when she saw this scene. Although the harpy was an extremely ferocious creature, it was not low in intellect. Now they were still defeated despite the help of the siren. Knowing that she was not an opponent of the enemy at all, she immediately tried her best to flap her wings to fly up. She rushed to the nearest siren and bit the siren’s neck.
Harpy Queen had a mutated blood-sucking talent. She could suck the blood of ordinary creatures to restore her power. The blood of similar species could also activate the secret method to launch a powerful transformation. The stronger the blood, the greater the transformation effect. Now what she wanted to do was to use the siren’s blood to restore her power to run away. Then, she would try to revenge next time.
The siren struggled desperately in pain, but Harpy Queen didn’t intend to stop at all. When she started to suck the blood, a figure appeared in front of her instantly. With a kick, Harpy Queen was knocked away fiercely. The siren that was nearly killed didn’t care about revealing her bare chest. She covered the 4 bloody holes on her neck with a frightened look, but it was more directed to Chen Rui.
Chen Rui’s murderous intent surged when he saw that Harpy Queen still dared to be ferocious. A faint light glowed in his hands, and he slashed in the air. Harpy Queen felt the danger behind her, but she didn’t manage to dodge, so she was slashed. She screamed sharply as her left wing and arm fell off.
“Wait a minute! Don’t kill her!” The beautiful siren of the Demon Emperor level somehow gathered her strength and desperately jumped to Chen Rui to stop him.
Chen Rui pointed to Harpy Queen who was about to pounce on another siren, “She almost killed your people. You are still begging for her?”
The siren said coldly, “She just killed one of my companions. What you want to kill is all of us.”
Chen Rui did not stop Harpy Queen because the Earth Elemental King had already appeared in front of Harpy Queen. The forwarding movement of Harpy Queen was fixed in the air as her body began to stiffen quickly. Her lower body had gradually turned into a rock.
“No!” The beautiful siren wailed in shock, “Let her go!”
The siren’s poignant and moving plea had no effect on Moore. The characteristic of the earth elementals was that they would not simply provoke their enemies, but they were definitely not easy to be messed with. Once they turned hostile, they would attack ruthlessly without leaving any future troubles.
After a while, Harpy Queen’s hideous expression completely solidified. Not only Harpy Queen, but the harpies on the ground also turned into stone statues. As Earth Elemental King waved his hand, all the stone statues shattered at the same time.
The sirens who witnessed this scene showed furious expressions. Looking at the hatred in the golden eyes of the beautiful siren who was either the queen or the princess, Chen Rui sneered, “Why let them go? They… no, you all. When killing passing travelers and using those bones as a sign of showing off, have you all ever thought of letting them live?”
The beautiful siren did not answer. Looking at the surrounding sirens, many sirens’ fishtails began to gradually change. The shape of human legs gradually appeared in a layer of mist-like membrane. This state was not a good thing for the siren. Generally speaking, the siren could not stay on the land for a long time, especially on the “island” with extremely rich earth elements. Once the sirens reached the time limit, they would dry to death because of losing the power of water elements.
The golden eyes of the beautiful siren showed a resolute expression. Her beautiful singing voice began to sing an unknown tune. The tune was full of sadness and desolation. The rest of the sirens also began to sing in unison. Chen Rui was not affected by any illusions as he was protected by the God-Eating Mask, but the feeling of sadness still entered deep into his heart. He couldn’t help but think of the past when Athena sang the “Song of Essidor” in Town Lupin.
At this moment, the entire island also began to change. The land in the center of the island was slowly sinking. At the same time, a large amount of sea water was sprayed from the ground like a huge bowl full of water. Some sirens who were facing danger were immediately relieved. It was just because of gravity that they couldn’t move freely at that instant.
The Earth Elemental King’s voice sounded, “Sirens are vegetarian. They are not as bloodthirsty and cruel as the harpies, but there is no doubt that sirens are the accomplice of the harpies who attacked the travelers. What makes me feel strange is that the sirens accompanied the harpies mainly to obtain the breath of the harpies to curb the blue spot disease, but there are substitutes. Obviously, we have no intention of annihilating the sirens, otherwise you all would have died a long time ago. Why do you still sing the Song of Broken Soul? Let me remind you that the Song of Broken Soul has no effect on us.”
The Song of Broken Soul was a double-edged song that could self-explode and cast a powerful curse. It was completely ineffective for the pure elemental body of Earth Elemental King. Chen Rui had the pseudo-God powerhouse inheritance (Moore thought so), so his soul power was unfathomable and would not be affected.
Chen Rui said, “The harpies took the initiative to attack us. Therefore, dying in our hands can only be said to be well-deserved. We don’t want to exterminate the sirens. We can forgive you for your guilt as accomplices. We can even provide corresponding help for the blue spot disease.”
“Do not want to exterminate the sirens?” The siren with the beautiful golden crystal siren glanced at Chen Rui contemptuously. “So what do you want? You want to capture the sirens as slaves? Or do you want the Siren’s Heart?”
This sentence made Chen Rui frown. The appearance of the sea alleviated the siren’s drying up crisis, but the Song of Broken Soul did not stop. As the song continued, a tragic spirit of death filled the island. It became more and more intense.
At this moment, a deep and elegant singing voice echoed in the distance. Under the interference of this song, the breath of the Song of Broken Soul gradually disappeared without a trace. The beautiful siren with the golden crystal siren looked odd as another figure appeared in the scene.
This was a very beautiful woman wearing a sexy robe. Her lower body had slender legs instead of a fishtail. The appearance of this woman was similar to that of the siren with the golden crystal. Black hair, golden pupils, and a little golden crystal on her forehead, but her temperament was completely different. She exuded a mature and attractive charm. In contrast, the previous beautiful siren with the golden crystal was more like a green apple.
“Elena greets both powerhouses.” This siren named Elena had reached the intermediate stage of the Demon Overlord. She performed a strange courtesy to Earth Elemental King and Chen Rui.
Moore and Chen Rui looked at each other and spoke up, “Royal Highness Queen of the siren tribe. Greetings, I’m Moore and this is my friend Chen Rui.”
“I only sensed such a pure element’s breath in Royal Highness Lambost before. Your Highness… Moore, should I call an Elemental King like that?” Elena’s experience and vision were obviously quite extensive, plus this island’s amazing work, so she correctly guessed Moore’s origin.
Moore nodded and said, “I went to the sea area of the water elementals to meet Lambost. I was attacked by the sirens and the harpies along the way. As you can see, the harpies have been completely annihilated, and the sirens are still alive.
Elena confirmed the identity of the other party in front of her was indeed 1 of the 6 Elemental Kings. He is a powerhouse who goes hand in hand with Water Elemental King Lambost. I am definitely unable to defeat him. She was shocked in her heart, and she saluted again, “Thanks to Your Highness for your kindness. Please forgive the sirens for their ignorance and offense… What I want to ask is what price should I pay in order to be forgiven by Your Highness?”
Moore threw the question to Chen Rui, “My friend needs some help from the sirens. If you can meet his requirements, then all the sirens can leave safely.”
Chen Rui was currently a winner, so he naturally did not need to beat around the bushes. He pointed to the beautiful young siren, “I want her.”
Elena’s face suddenly sank, “Helen is my daughter and the successor of the siren tribe, but even if she is just an ordinary siren, I will not accept this threat. With the knowledge of Your Highness, you should know the traditions of the sirens. I admit that I am not your opponent, but the use of force can only allow you and your friends to harvest the corpse of the siren tribe- if this is your original intention.”
Earth Elemental King added indifferently, “I only ask, are you ready to accept the consequences of the extinction of the siren tribe?”
“The siren tribe is already in danger of extinction!” Helen interjected coldly, “It starts when you kill the harpies.”
“If it’s just for the blue spot disease, I don’t think it’s that bad.” Moore frowned, “If there are other reasons, maybe my friend and I can help the siren tribe.”
Before Elena answered, Helen had spoken directly. Her golden pupils looked at Chen Rui directly, “If you can help the sirens completely solve the problem of naga and phantom coral, I will be yours!”
TL: Hmmm, if Dodo was watching this scene somewhere, the crystal harem will become more unstable…
