Strena heard the anxiety in Chen Rui’s tone. She immediately returned to the ship, ordered to stop all shooting and attacks, and rushed toward the opening cleared by Chen Rui in front.
“Madam Strena! Come quickly!” A naga exclaimed from the ship cabin.
Strena hurried into the ship cabin and saw the naga girl holding her arms in both hands as she curled up tightly. Even the harp was thrown aside. She had an extremely fearful expression on her face.
Strena was shocked and stepped forward to hug her sister, “Adeline! What happened to you?”
“Run quickly! Sister! Hurry!” Adeline was trembling all over as she panted quickly as if she had exhausted her last power to say these words. The main sacrifice imprint mark on her forehead began to faintly shine.
At this time, the ship swayed violently like it had encountered the impact of a huge wave. When Strena heard the horrified cries from the deck, she had an ominous premonition. She carried Adeline and quickly walked out.
At this time, the [Dark Sky] had gradually dissipated. The strange thing was that the sea beast tide and even the sea beast group in front of Chen Rui had retreated far away. This was by no means an impact from the [Star Explosion]. Judging from the panic and fear of the sea beasts, there should be something more terrifying about to appear.
The answer was quickly revealed. A huge tentacle emerged in the constant waves behind the Devil’s Snare Ship.
The tentacle was of dark red color. The exposed part was 40-50 meters high and nearly 10 meters in diameter. The tentacle was covered with terrifying suckers and barbs, exuding a weird and powerful breath.
The tentacle rose higher and higher. When it reached a height of about 100 meters, it whipped down, splitting apart the seawater. The violently undulating seawater quickly extended to the Devil’s Snare Ship that was desperately advancing.
The entire ship was lifted high in the air by the huge waves that were stirred up. When the power of the tentacles dissipated, the Devil’s Snare Ship fell straight down with the gushing sea water. Although there was a special device to prevent the ship from turning over, these huge ups and downs caused most of the people on the ship to fly up and fall into the water. Strena hugged her sister tightly while the other 2 hands clasped directly onto the mast, then only she barely stabilized her figure.
This was just the beginning. The direction of the sea had already experienced a strange upwelling. The Devil’s Snare Ship, which was moving at full speed, was involuntarily moved backward by the sea tide. It was like a person on a high-speed treadmill. Even though he was sweating profusely, he was still sucked back involuntarily.
Another huge terrifying tentacle appeared. This time, it was in front of the Devil’s Snare Ship. With the power of these tentacles, there would only be one end if the Devil’s Snare Ship was wrapped or smashed down directly, that was total destruction.
The huge tentacles continued to appear. There were already 4 surrounding the Devil’s Snare Ship. A powerful attack was on the verge of being launched. Even if the ship had the ability to fly into the sky, it would not be able to escape the disaster of extinction.
Strena showed hopelessness as she tightly hugged Adeline who was trembling. At this moment, a figure shining with stars suddenly appeared in the sky. The sound mixed with a certain kind of power spread from a distance, “Respectable blood octopus tribe powerhouse, I have no intention of breaking into the territory kingdom of sir. Please forgive our intrusion.”
Chen Rui’s voice was mixed with the spirit power of the [Analytical Eyes]. It penetrated directly into the bottom of the sea.
The moment the tentacles appeared just now, the [Analytical Eyes] had already given the data.
Race: Blood-marked Demonic Octopus (Mutated)
Comprehensive Strength Assessment: Unable to determine.
[Analysis]: Extremely dangerous!
“Unable to determine” meant that this enemy had surpassed the level of Demon Overlord which was definitely not what he was capable of fighting against now.
The movement of the tentacles suddenly paused, seeming to be silent for a moment, then the Devil’s Snare Ship shook for a while and slowly rose up. It turned out that a tentacle was carrying it high underneath.
At the same time, the waves split apart. A giant figure emerged from the water.
This was a huge figure that looked like a hill. The whole body was dark red with a faint green color. Judging from the parts outside of the water, it looked like an octopus. The body had many eye-like red beads. The huge squirming mouth revealed hideous organs and layers of sharp teeth that made people shudder.
In addition to the horror films from the previous life, it was the first time Chen Rui saw such a terrifying and huge monster in reality. It would be a lie to say that he was not scared. It was just that he was no longer a rookie who just entered the Demon Realm. Although he was horrified, he tried his best to use his spirit power to control the fluctuating emotions as he slowly landed on the deck.
The huge beast’s red bead eyes were fixed on Chen Rui. Even Strena behind could not help shuddering in the face of this intangible terrifying pressure. Chen Rui tried to stay calm and bowed to the huge beast, “Aguile. Beelzebub. Greetings to you, sir.”
The 7 great royals in the Demon Realm were definitely not an unknown person. It could be used as a negotiation background. Moreover, Chen Rui had the God-Eating Mask and the Earth Elemental King’s bestowed [Gravity]. It was not difficult to pretend to be this identity.
The blood-red skin on the top of the huge beast’s mouth began to twist, and a face appeared. At first glance, the facial features were no different from ordinary people, except that there were 3 more inverted eyes on the forehead which looked very strange.
“You should call me the Black Sea God, but you can see through my real body at a glance. Before granting you death, I should at least compliment your eyesight.” The man face made a metallic and clanging sound, and the surrounding seawater was shaken with slight ripples.
“Dear sir, I can feel the great power of this kingdom, but the faith power in it seems to be too mottled. These sea beasts are driven by fear more than… faith in sir? “
Chen Rui’s words were by no means nonsense. He had more than 1 Pillar of Faith in the Super System, so he was fully aware of the power of faith. He used the [Analytical Eyes] to see through the race of the huge beast, but now this sentence directly hits the point of “Black Sea God”.
The 5 eyes of the huge beast’s man face lit up with a terrifying red light at the same time, “What do you want to say? You want me to praise your eyesight again before you die, or you want me to keep your eyes as a collection?”
Chen Rui felt his heart pounding. He took a deep breath with determination and said unhurriedly, “I want to express only one meaning. If sir is only this level, then you may not be able to surpass the existence behind me to grant me death.”
“Existence behind you?” The huge beast’s gaze turned to Chen Rui’s [Royal Star Transformation] armor, seeming to be thinking about something. He suddenly roared, “Even if you are a follower of some existence, but this is the Dead Sea! This is the Black Sea, it’s my kingdom! No one can stop me from devouring you, a tiny ant!”
The surrounding sea water turned into a huge vortex because of the roar as if the huge beast was the master of the world. Even a breath could cause a great momentum. Adeline had already lost the ability to speak; she could only tremble in Strena’s arms. Strena’s mind was also full of tension and fear. After all, Black Sea God was the ruler who enslaved the naga tribe for many years.
Facing the power of the huge beast, Chen Rui really calmed down instead. He shook his head, “You’re wrong, Sir Sea God. I don’t know if every Demi-God powerhouse has the ability to tear space, but what is certain is that the existence behind me has exactly this might… I don’t know if sir has heard of the Mountain Seckred?”
The huge beast’s man face was slightly stagnant. At the same time, a name was said from the huge mouth, “Sa… tan!”
The overlapping sounds were like gold and iron clashing. Everyone’s eardrums were buzzing. More importantly, Chen Rui keenly felt a trace of fear in the tone of this huge beast. It seems that Satan still has this reputation. At present, I have to use him to intimidate others.
Before the other party completely wrapped his head around it, Chen Rui took advantage of the situation to take out a red badge. It was engraved with a strange pattern which seemed to be a snake.
“Sir Sea God, this badge should prove that what I said is the truth.”
The 5 eyes of the huge beast stared at the snake pattern badge closely. After a moment of silence, the badge in Chen Rui’s hand disappeared again. He respectfully saluted, “This time, I was ordered to go to the Hidden Misty Island, but I unexpectedly entered sir’s kingdom, I sincerely apologize for this. I plead sir to let us pass. I’m willing to do my best. I will pay the corresponding wealth or treasures as sir’s compensation.”
Satan’s scheming was deep and mysterious. He was by no means a little brother who would come and go. Chen Rui was also very fearful of that guy. If he was really summoned, Chen Rui himself couldn’t predict what would happen. Perhaps there would be worse results. Therefore, after hinting his tough backer to the huge beast, he immediately showed humility and good attitude.
Sure enough, the huge beast nodded after thinking for a while, “If your compensation can satisfy me, I can let you go, but the rest must stay, especially the naga who bears the faith imprint!”
Chen Rui faintly guessed that the so-called main sacrifice imprint should be condensed by the faith power of nagas which the huge beast devoured to enhance the faith power. This was the truth of naga tribe’s sacrifice.
Strena was shocked when she heard this. Somehow, she plucked up the courage and shouted, “Sir Sea God, please let her go, I’m willing to replace my sister…”
“Hmph! You killed a lot of my believers, you should’ve died!” The huge beast said sternly, “This guy with [Armor of Faith] may still have a chance while you all are going to die!”
Chen Rui looked back at the desperate naga sisters and frowned, “Sir, they are all my sailors. I will definitely not be able to reach the Hidden Misty Island alone. May I ask if my compensation can cover my sailors?”
“The Hidden Misty Island?” The huge beast’s man face stared at Chen Rui for a moment. His eyes gradually narrowed, “If I really want to let you go, you should get out of the Black Sea. When did I say that you are allowed to go to the Hidden Misty Island? What’s more… I haven’t decided if I want to let you go yet…”
Chen Rui frowned even more. The huge beast’s man face suddenly showed an odd smile, “I don’t understand why Satan sends you to the Black Sea. I don’t even understand, if even Satan’s believers can have such a powerful [Armor of Faith], then his own power should be quite close to the legendary realm, so why did he only send an ant like you to come here? Perhaps I should rename you as… the inheritor of the Dark Dragon Emperor?”
Chen Rui finally showed a change of emotion. I did not expect that the “Black Sea God” would be so careful. He actually saw through my trick so quickly. What is even more surprising is the phrase “inheritor of the Dark Dragon Emperor” that the huge beast said!
The treasure recorded in this treasure map is actually related to the Dark Dragon Emperor hundreds of thousands of years ago, so this blood-marked demon octopus should have reached the Demi-God level. What is his relationship with the Dark Dragon Emperor and this treasure?
TL: Didn’t they say that octopus has a high intelligence? Trying to trick an octopus god? No way. How will Chen Rui convince Black Sea God to let them go?
