“Impossible!” Glorios roared, “How could I lose! How could you, an ant, get past my sensing!”
“In the blockbusters, suspense is usually left at the end,” Chen Rui’s smile was a little stiff, the black in his pupils seemed to cover the blood color, but it was suppressed by the blood color again, “Want to struggle? Your calculations are good, but unfortunately, I’m the ultimate winner in this gambling game!”
Glorios didn’t know that the last 2 sentences of the other party were not actually directed toward him. At this moment, Lich King’s heart was filled with the raging anger caused by the failure. He gritted his teeth and said, “Damn it, don’t be so proud! I’m going to kill you all. Let your soul suffer in my kingdom forever!”
Chen Rui’s body trembled slightly, his face was still smiling, “Oh? Want to back out?”
“So what if I back out? You’re all going to die!” Glorios shouted. As his mind turned, the contract signed by the 2 parties suddenly suspended in front of them. His body turned into plumes of smoke with blue flames that wrapped the contract. The contract suddenly burned, making crackling and popping noises.
The Dark Elemental King outside the scene reacted fastest. With a wave of his hands, a dark golden light blasted toward Glorios. However, Glorios was already prepared. There was some kind of irregular twist in the air as if there were countless pairs of transparent hands. The dark golden energy was continuously resolved and weakened in this process. It was disintegrated before it got close to the table.
After the blast, the blue light of Glorios’s pupils dimmed a lot as though he exhausted a lot of energy. However, after the smoke gradually dissipated, the contract remained intact.
Lich King exclaimed in horror, “You’re nothing but a Demon Overlord at best. Why can’t I cancel the contract?!”
“Haha!” Chen Rui laughed. His bloodred eyes flashed strangely, “According to the contract, I will accept half of your soul. As a reward, I can cancel another condition of the contract…”
As he said, the contract immediately shone brightly. Glorios covered his head in pain and kept screaming, “My soul! No! No! What kind of existence are you?!”
Chen Rui took a deep breath. Strands of golden soul power floated out of Glorios as if it was being pulled by some kind of suction. It was completely devoured.
Chen Rui’s body trembled more and more violently after he devoured the soul power, but his eyes glowed as he laughed, “Very delicious soul power. The next time I come out, it will be time for us to finally end this. It will be very soon…”
Before he finished speaking, his pupils were constantly alternating between black and red before it finally turned black.
After recovering to his normal state, Chen Rui gasped violently as he squeezed his fists unwillingly- It was originally a fairly complete plan, using the contract of the match to borrow the kingdom of Lich King to split and confine Shura. Unexpectedly, Shura actually appeared again at the critical moment, desperately snatching control of the body, and he finally won the match. As Shura said, this round was a failed victory for Chen Rui.
Shura not only devoured half of Glorios’ soul, but he also canceled Glorios’ contract which was the clause that they could enter the Tower of Destruction regardless of victory or defeat. Glorios, who was extremely injured, naturally would not give up so easily.
The figure of Lich King had drifted like a light smoke toward the scream filled with indescribable rage that sounded through the entire Land of Hatred, “Damn it! Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts! Kill them all!”
The dark red light appeared in the eyes of the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts that had been silent like a statue near the Tower of Hatred. They all became alive in an instant.
The largest Dark Iron Mystic Ghost slowly raised the greatsword in its hand and pointed it at Chen Rui and others. The Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts all rushed toward them like a black torrent.
With the number of people on Chen Rui’s side, there was no chance of winning at all in the face of such a terrifying number of Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts. There was also a kingdomized powerhouse clone, Glorios, next to them.
The Dark Elemental King and others hurriedly prepared to fight. Chen Rui’s mind moved, and his figure appeared in the air instantly. His loud voice spread from afar, “Resentful souls! I know that your souls have been tied to the Land of Hatred, forever suffering endless torture and curse. I have become your master. I now swear by my soul, as long as you clear out these Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts and help us enter the Tower of Destruction, I will do my best to help you completely liberate yourself from pain!”
The resentful souls were in a commotion as they looked at each other as if they couldn’t believe it. Because of the Land of Hatred’s curse, the resentful souls would not die. Once annihilated, they would take a long time to slowly regenerate in endless pain. This process was no less than hell-like suffering which was a living death. Prinz’s “death” previously was also like this.
Because of the Lich King’s remaining prowess, no resentful souls dared to take the lead.
Seeing that the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts were approaching soon, Strena’s voice sounded, “The heroic spirits of the naga tribe! I’m the current young chief of the nagas, the inheritor of the golden tent. I followed this man to eliminate the life sacrifice and suffering that has plagued the naga tribe for countless years. Along the way, he proved himself with actions and made me choose to trust him unreservedly. I also entrusted the lives of my tribe people and myself to him! Please believe him like I do! Help him! He will definitely help everyone out of pain!”
As soon as Strena said these few words, a lot of the naga souls from the sea of resentful souls rushed out toward the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts. This action was like a catalyst. Countless resentful souls rushed out. The vast sea of resentful souls charged wave after wave toward the black torrent of the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts.
The 2 forces collided in an instant. The resentful souls were like phantoms. They had a certain chance of being immune to physical attacks, and their attacks also had strong curse power and poison. Unfortunately, this kind of poison or curse power was completely ineffective for the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts. The amazing power of the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts was fully unleashed. It was difficult for the attacks of the resentful souls to break through the extremely high defense of the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts while the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts had a high chance of tearing resentful souls easily.
However, there were too many resentful souls. An army of ants could often kill the elephants. In the face of the surging waves, the “torrent” of the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts was at best a small river. Their number began to decrease rapidly.
Glorios didn’t expect to get a taste of his own medicine. The resentful souls whom he lost to the opponent were used to deal with the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts. Suddenly, the blue lights in his eyes were blazing. The translucent little flames fluttered and spread out all over.
The resentful souls that touched the flame screamed and disappeared. This was the soul fire of the Lich King’s kingdom. The soulless Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts were not affected. The resentful souls wailed constantly as they were very afraid of the flames while the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts still maintained this powerful combat power without any feeling. The situation was reversed again. The situation was in a stalemate for a while.
A large amount of black gas burst from Hegel’s body and formed a circle that protected everyone including Chen Rui. The black gas and the soul fire seemed to be resisting each other, but Hegel clearly looked exhausted.
“So what if you are the Dark Elemental King; this is not the world of elements!” Glorios gritted his teeth and said, “Although most of my kingdom is made up of dark elements and it is not comparable to your origin power, but I’m a kingdomized powerhouse. You have no chance of winning. Any resistance is just a dying struggle.”
“Kingdomized? It’s just pseudo kingdomization!” Hegel sneered, “Even if your soul was severely injured just now, you still did not appear in your real body! You must be restricted by the relevant rules, so you can only appear in the form of clone. You can’t really activate the kingdom power! You’re anxious to kill us because you want to heal and restore the soul power that has been severely damaged as soon as possible! Let me guess… the life box containing the soul essence is hidden somewhere in the Land of Hatred. At this point, as long as we find the life box and destroy it, then you will also be completely annihilated!”
As the bone staff in Glorios’ hand swung repeatedly, the light of the Land of Hatred dimmed. A terrifying pressure spread rapidly. The movement of Chen Rui and the others became restricted. The Dark Elemental King’s protective black gas also shrank under the pressure.
Everyone had an instinctive feeling as if they were ants and Glorios was the supreme master; they could only be slain as per his wish. They could hardly have any resisting thoughts. The most obvious reaction was the resentful souls. Their power was suppressed to the lowest point, and their fighting spirit was greatly dampened as they fled around. They were completely suppressed by the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts which were far fewer than them.
This feeling was not an illusion, but something like “Rule”- This is no longer territory power, but kingdom power!
Even Strena showed an uncomfortable look. The only people who remained normal were Hegel and Chen Rui. Chen Rui frowned as the appearance of stars appeared around his body. With the buff of [Galaxy Territory], Hegel’s protective black gas expanded slightly. He was secretly surprised.
“Hmph… Such a bizarre power. You are actually not limited by my kingdom power. How can a small corner of your territory compare with the whole kingdom?” Lich King’s tone suddenly became sharp and strange, “No matter what kind of existence is behind you, I will crush you today, then I’ll cut your soul apart inch by inch!”
Countless whirring figures began to appear in the air. It was the images of Death Gods holding scythes as they flew toward Chen Rui and others. These “Death Gods” were similar to Broc’s [Incubus Territory]. Their ethereal figures transformed into dissipating smoke after being attacked, then they quickly merged back into their original form. However, their attacks were not illusory. The terrifying scythe had strange characteristics. Many dark elementals and nagas on the edge of the black gas protection turned into light smoke and annihilated after just being slashed from the distance.
Hegel’s protective black gas suddenly changed into tens of thousands of “silk threads” flying toward Death God. After Death God’s void body was contaminated with black gas, it quickly merged into a solid body, then it was shattered like glass by the black silk.
It was just that the smoke in the kingdom was inexhaustible. New Death Gods were constantly being formed. Even if Hegel had the buff from the [Galaxy Territory] and the dark elements’ origin power had a certain restraining effect, it would not last.
“I can’t hold on for long. We must find the life box and destroy it as soon as possible!” Hegel said solemnly, “Although I am strongly disturbed, my dark elemental heart can sense that the soul that echoes with this kingdom is nearby! You must cover me!”
“Okay!” Chen Rui knew that it was urgent, so he agreed without thinking even if he could not activate the [Royal Star Transformation].
TL: Damn Shura, he really likes to mess everything up.
