Due to Chen Rui’s departure, the [Gravity] gradually weakened. The pale golden-skinned titan stood up first. At this time, there were more than 20 huge figures and dozens of green human figures with whirlwinds on their lower bodies near the basin. The strange thing was that the titans, who were always hostile to the outsiders, did not attack these green human figures. Instead, they seemed to be tacit partners.
1 of the green figures slowly flew into the basin. Sensing the remaining [Gravity] breath, his eyes suddenly glowed with a spark as he made a sharp roar. His figure flashed and disappeared.
The figures behind him all screamed in echoes. They rose into the air and quickly followed the green figure.
Chen Rui just left the basin, and he was about to fly in the direction of the Devil’s Snare Ship when he suddenly heard sharp and long whistling sounds behind him. With his hearing ability, he could hear that 1 of the long whistling sounds with powerful strength was quickly approaching. The speed was simply not inferior to his [Sonic Boom].
With a thought, Chen Rui immediately activated [Sonic Boom] and changed the direction of his advancement. When he flew to a rocky mountain, he suddenly decelerated and landed. He activated the 2 skills of [Breath Holding] and [Sneak] to conceal his figure.
Soon, a green figure appeared in the line of sight. The speed was no doubt astonishing. The green figure in high-speed flying stopped instantly as he seemed to sense something. He looked around vigilantly.
Chen Rui finally saw the approaching figure’s whirlwind lower body, and he was shocked.
At the same time, the corresponding information was displayed in the [Analytical Eyes].
Race: Wind elementals.
Comprehensive Strength Assessment: S+.
Physique: S+, power: S+, spirit: S++, speed: S++.
[Analysis]: Wind attribute. Wind element magic immunity. Speed talent. The degree of danger (High).
It is actually a wind elemental!
It turns out that on the Storm Island, there are also wind elementals in addition to the powerful creatures like the titans!
Chen Rui seemed to realize something as he thought of the environment of Storm Island.
The wind elemental in front of him gave him a very strange feeling. It seemed to have a mysterious breath that surpassed the ordinary peak stage of the Demon Overlord. He had sensed this kind of breath before in the 3 Elemental Kings. Meanwhile, the upgraded [ Analytical Eyes]’s analysis data was more detailed. It showed that the speed and spirit power had reached the level of S++. Then this wind elemental is probably 1 of the 3 Kings of Light…
At this moment, dozens of green figures came whistling in the air behind. They were all wind elementals. When the first wind elemental raised his hand, the rest of the wind elementals behind stopped altogether. They kept a certain distance and didn’t dare to get too close. This action further confirmed Chen Rui’s guess, Wind Elemental King!
Wind elementals were the enemy of the earth elementals. They had the fastest speed talent among all elementals, and they could also manipulate the highly aggressive wind element magic.
The overall strength of the wind elementals of the human world surpassed any elementals of the Demon Realm. In the Demon Realm, there were no Demon Overlord-level elite elementals under the 3 Kings of Darkness, but the Wind Elemental King had 4 Demon Overlord wind elementals. There were more than 10 Demon Emperor-level wind elementals.
Chen Rui once heard Moore mention that the level of elite elementals had a lot to do with the origin fragments. Among the 3 Kings of Darkness, only Water Elemental King Lambost with a water origin fragment benefited from the gift of Chen Rui while Dark Elemental King Hegel did not hesitate to take risks for the dark origin fragment. He was currently trapped in the Tower of Destruction.
Wind Elemental King must have the wind origin fragment at hand!
The sensing ability of Wind Elemental King was extremely keen. He actually noticed an anomaly and ordered the wind elementals to search around. Fortunately, Chen Rui’s [Breath Holding] and [Sneak] skills were very magical. Coupled with his S++ spirit power, he was not discovered.
Chen Rui suddenly thought of the wind source power needed by Zola’s Kingdom of Elements. At this moment, there were heavy footsteps behind. It turned out that the titans were coming.
To Chen Rui’s surprise, titans were obviously in a group with the wind elementals. Not only did they not have any conflicts, but they cooperated with the search.
The 2 groups of people searched for a long time to no avail. Wind Elemental King showed a puzzled expression, and he finally did not linger. He greeted the titans and continued to fly forward like lightning. The titans followed suit in heavy steps.
Storm Island was by no means a friendly place. If Chen Rui wanted to obtain the wind source power from Wind Elemental King, he could only use force.
Elemental King’s level of strength was limited to the peak stage of the Demon Overlord for some reason, but in fact, they all had the origin power. Their combat power was far from comparable to the ordinary peak stage of the Demon Overlord. Coupled with the super speed talent of wind elementals, Chen Rui might not be able to secure the victory without using [Pole Star Transformation] in 1-to-1 battle.
Besides, there were also elite wind elementals and Demon Overlord titans. There were 7 peak stage of the Demon Overlords including the Wind Elemental King.
Chen Rui himself didn’t know what kind of power [Pole Star Transformation] could achieve, but he didn’t think too much due to the cost of 10,000 faith crystals. Every faith crystal was extremely precious now. He must hold them tightly and not splurge.
There were priorities. After the 6-star evolution, the star point’s validity period had been extended to 3 years. As long as there was enough faith crystal, Chen Rui could return to the human world from the Demon Realm to get the wind source power next time. Isabella’s matter is the most urgent right now. There is not much time left. I must first gather the 1 million faith crystal needed to return to the Demon Realm.
Seeing the titans’ going away, Chen Rui sneaked silently in the opposite direction and proceeded cautiously all the way. After spending some time, he finally reached the bank where the Devil’s Snare Ship was located.
After boarding the ship, Chen Rui immediately gave the order to leave. The sandmen began to quickly set sail.
“Captain… I…” Samuel was scrupulous about Lucio and others, so he didn’t dare to call Chen Rui ‘Your Highness’ directly. After the Devil’s Snare Ship sailed away from Storm Island, he took a long time to call him this. This time, he not only disappointed the pledge of allegiance back then, ‘His Highness’ even took the risk and rescued him and Joanna in the end. The Silver Knight’s heart was full of shame and guilt.
“Okay, stop talking nonsense.” Chen Rui patted Samuel on the shoulder, “This time you will return to the Dragon Bright Empire to defeat Paul in front of everyone. Also, keep my affairs secret for the time being. Don’t reveal it to anyone including my… ‘father’.”
“Yes! Your… captain, I understand.” Samuel didn’t say more. He just secretly felt grateful in his heart.
“What’s the matter with the 2 ladies?” Chen Rui showed a strange look as he glanced at Joanna and Ina who were talking intimately at the end of the ship, “Sir Silver Knight, it seems that your coordination ability in a certain aspect is far above my imagination.”
“I didn’t do anything.” Samuel said innocently, “It’s just that when we evacuated, Ina was bitten by a viper to protect Joanna in the woods. Then, I helped Ina to suck the poison out. After that… On the ship, Joanna took Ina to the side to talk… and they have been ignoring me.”
The legendary poison sucking to heal injuries? Chen Rui showed a knowing expression when he looked at the white gauze wrapped around Ina’s thigh. The strange gaze made the Silver Knight’s heart shiver. Fortunately, His Highness did not go on gossiping, “Although it is dangerous this time, your gains should not be small. What you have to do now is to calmly comprehend these gains and stabilize your new realm. I was still considering whether to use another external force to increase your power, but it seems that this is no longer necessary.”
Samuel nodded with strong confidence in his eyes, “I will definitely beat Paul.”
“I’ll return this to you.” Chen Rui handed something over. Samuel had mixed feelings at the moment he saw that it was the broken sword. He bowed deeply to Chen Rui. Chen Rui nodded slightly and smiled.
Not far away, Lucio was secretly surprised when he saw Samuel’s respectful expression. He sensibly didn’t ask much.
With Chen Rui in the presence, the Devil’s Snare Ship smoothly left the Storm Sea area. They did not return to the Garden City port, but they drove into the Town Vegas sea area to the southwest.
“Ina, you really don’t want to come back to the Dragon Bright Empire with us?” Joanna looked at Ina in surprise, “We can be best friends. I would like to invite you to be the bridesmaid for my wedding in the future.”
Ina glanced at Samuel and smiled, “We are already good friends. I will definitely come to your wedding. He knows how to find me.”
From the side, Chen Rui could see clearly that the 2 ladies were not as harmonious as they seemed on the surface. Samuel was likely to suffer. As someone who had experienced this, Chen Rui patted Samuel on the shoulder, “Take care.”
The duel was just around the corner. Samuel and Joanna went from Town Vegas to the Red Dragon City of the Dragon Bright Empire by water. Ina had left the mercenary group, saying that she wanted to fulfill his father’s last wish to try starting a business. Lucio, who had been ‘dead’ once, changed his face and decided to follow Ina to see the world himself. Of course, the spearman also had some small plans in his heart. Chen Rui kept the Devil’s Snare Ship and used the method taught by Earth Elemental King to keep the sandmen into the soil essence. He activated the [Star Gate] and immediately returned to the church in the Garden City.
In the Garden City church, Shura had completely stolen the faith power of the Garden City. As a ‘wounded’ in the retreat, he did not arouse any suspicion. Eliza’s injury had almost fully recovered and she was about to set off to the Yang Shao Capital escorted by Paul. Chen Rui naturally went with him.
Paul had received a duel notification from the Dragon Bright Empire. After escorting Eliza to the Yang Shao Capital this time, he must return directly to the Dragon Bright Empire to participate in the duel hosted by Lex the Great. The opponent was the empire’s Silver Knight, Samuel, the second son of the Kemplot Family.
After the duel, Paul would go to the White Cliff to participate in the selection of Divinity Temple Knight.
TL: Well, will Paul still have the face to participate after the duel though? It’s surprising that Chen Rui met the wind elementals so fast. It seemed like the Kings of Light seemed to win in the previous Elemental War as they still retained the origin fragments. Luckily, he didn’t stay and ‘reason’ with the wind elementals and the titans, otherwise there would be no return…
