Chen Rui’s plan was to work separately. The original body headed to the Snowy Summit Stage to get the Snow Dallet Flower, and the avatar Shura went the other way. It was not just to act with Eliza; The real goal was the top of the Holy Light Mountain.
The 2 started to work separately in the Holy Family Hall. Just when Chen Rui encountered the Light Elemental King, Shura, who had dealt with Eliza and Paul, had bypassed the 3 major temples and headed directly to the top of the Holy Light Mountain which was the forbidden area accessible only by the pope and 3 archbishops: Light Divinity Temple.
After bypassing the guards around the entrance, there was no hindrance along the way. It seemed to be inconsistent with the name of the so-called ‘forbidden area’, but the road seemed to be endless. After walking for a long time, he was still here at the mountain. The summit seemed to be not far away, but it still maintained the same distance as if it was far away.
Shura frowned, and his figure disappeared suddenly. A huge object broke through the ground, hitting his original position, and the hard stone steps suddenly shattered. This was a giant golden tentacle that was about 4 meters in diameter and 10 meters in length. After the missed attack, it stretched for a few meters and whipped straight toward Shura who appeared in the air. Shura avoided it again. One after another tentacles appeared on the ground as if the entire hill was a huge octopus.
“This is the ‘holy beast’?” Shura thought of what Miranda had said about the temple, and he smiled contemptuously, “Putting aside the power, it is inferior judging from its aesthetic.”
Countless tentacles entangled and Shura’s figure flashed rapidly. After some dazzling movements, those tentacles were entangled and actually tied a dead knot. The ground was constantly cracking and trembling because of the intense struggle, but it could not break away from the dead knot.
“It seems that this scene can often be seen in the cartoons in memory. This is a killing move against the tentacles…” Shura said to himself, and his tone suddenly rose, “Come out! The guy watching the show. The trick in this section of the road should be your work, right? As long as I kill you, I can go to the top of the mountain to see the scenery.”
“What a bold claim!” A man’s figure gradually faded out in the air. A silver-haired man wearing a golden robe with a deep outline of his face. “I haven’t met an ignorant intruder in a long time. I’ll annihilate you in this holy glory!”
A blazing flame whistled over. Shura’s eyes flashed with a red light, and he swung his arm to deflect the flame. It happened to fall and explode on the huge tentacles that were tangled together. Then, the huge tentacles turned into ashes.
Although Shura knocked the man’s flame away, he was pushed a few steps in the opposite direction. He felt his arm tingling. “Hmph, there is a bit of brute force.”
“You have a bit of strength to be able to block the blow from me, Sir Radamanro. Don’t worry, I haven’t been active for tens of thousands of years. I won’t let you die too quickly.” When Radamaro said the last word, he already appeared in front of Shura. His arms turned into dozens of shadows which surrounded Shura.
Shura staggered left and right, barely defending, but he was still unable to resist. His body was torn into several pieces in the blink of an eye. Radamaro’s expression was full of disdain, “What a disappointing guy…”
Before he finished speaking, he saw a weird smile flashed past Shura’s torn face. Radamaro immediately came to a realization, “Illusion?”
Before Radamaro could react, a warning sign surged. He was blown away by a strong wind behind him. Almost at the same time as he flew out, a ghostly figure intercepted the unbalanced Radamaro in midair. “Boom boom boom“. Deafening blows sounded. Radamaro was a little stunned by this round of attacks. His body that flew out was pulled back and thrown into the sky with a strong inertia. Shura’s figure instantly appeared at the highest point in the sky. He clasped his fist and smashed it down with massive power.
“Boom!” After the smoke dissipated, there was a hole on the ground like a fallen meteorite. Radamaro slowly stood up, gritted his teeth and looked at the enemy in the sky. At this time, the shining golden robe was already torn into strips. He was covered in dirt and had a haggard look.
What caught Shura’s attention was that there were no scars on Radamaro’s body under this continuous violent blow. This guy’s attack and defense capabilities are surprisingly high.
There were a few more exchanges in hit; The 2 sides had already attacked each other countless times at high speed. At this time, Radamaro did not dare to look down upon Shura. This enemy not only had the same strength as him, but he was also proficient in illusion. The mixture of reality and illusion almost cost him a severe setback.
Radamaro faked a punch, pulled the distance away, and suddenly the flames all over his body skyrocketed. The surrounding space seemed to be burned by flames with a strange distortion. The dark clouds in the sky exuded a territory power that could destroy the world.
At the moment, Shura’s breath seemed to be suppressed to the lowest point. The violent voice of Radamaro sounded, “[Stardust Rainstorm]!”
The dark clouds in the sky exploded. Countless lightning and shining huge raindrops poured down on Shura; he was unable to avoid it. In addition to the territory power of Radamaro, this blow also contained a special strengthening buff. If Chen Rui was here, he should be able to use the [Analytical Eyes] to judge that Radamaro’s strength had reached the S++ level!
Shura instinctively felt the huge threat of this blow. His eyes were flourished with red light. In the blink of an eye, he was completely enveloped by the power of [Stardust Rainstorm]. However, what surprised Radamaro happened. The trajectory of [Stardust Rainstorm] suddenly changed strangely. It seemed to be strongly attracted to something. Shura was like a big mouth; he was actually ‘devouring’ all the lightning and light rain.
Even more incredible was that Shura stretched his hands and shouted, “[Stardust Rainstorm]!”
Countless lightning and light rain gushed out toward Radamaro. Radamaro was dumbfounded. This was his killing move!
A strong sense of crisis told him that this was by no means an illusion!
The violent rain of stars sprinkled frantically on the mountain peak, and the entire mountain peak became devastated in the blink of an eye.
At the center of the attack, the body of Radamaro who was hit by his own killing move was covered with bloody holes, completely becoming a bloody man. The frightened and furious Radamaro let out a beastly groan. His body began to swell rapidly with huge bat wings sticking out from behind.
There were wounds in Shura’s body in many places. Although there was no blood flow out, the damage was obviously not light. In fact, Radamaro’s strength was not small. After activating the ‘retaliating with one’s own skill’, he suffered severe damage too.
“It turns out that you are the real ‘holy beast’… You should be called the holy dragon? To be precise, this is the second holy dragon I have ever seen.”
Shura said lightly as he quietly witnessed the changes in Radamaro. Stars appeared in his pupils, and his figure began to be hazy. Stacks of his figure seemed to appear.
“[Stardust Rainstorm] is just a light breeze and drizzle, I’ll let you see what a real star explosion is!”
In the Divinity Seal Hall of the Snowy Summit Stage.
Chen Rui’s fingers tightened and the light flourished in front of the Snow Dallet Tree. The Snow Dallet Flower’s ancient runes magic circle had been forcibly broken. Normally, it would take at least half a day to crack it, but now since his whereabouts were exposed, he used the fastest way to drag the ancient runes to collide with each other, and finally quickly canceled the protective magic circles.
Almost at the same time, a figure wearing a silver robe appeared in Chen Rui’s sight at an extremely fast speed. This was an old man in his sixties with white hair and beard. Judging from his clothing and crown, it should be the supreme master of the Holy Light Mountain, the glorious Pope Vantis.
Comprehensive Strength Assessment: SS-(S++).
Physique: S-(S), power: S+(S), spirit: SS-(S++), speed: S++(SS-).
[Analysis]: Light attribute. Degree of danger: Very dangerous.
The strength of Vantis was similar to that of Holy Lady Eudora. His real strength had not yet reached the kingdom level, but he could activate kingdom level power within the scope of this Divinity Seal Hall. If Chen Rui forcefully fought against him, Chen Rui was definitely not an opponent.
“It turned out to be His Holiness Vantis.” Chen Rui’s palm contained a destructive white light, and he aimed it at the Snow Dallet Tree, “Don’t act rashly, Your Holiness, maybe you have the ability to kill me in an instant… But I also have the ability to let these 3 sacred trees accompany my death in an instant.”
A cold light flashed in Vantis’s eyes as his figure slowly landed, “Who are you? Why did you break into the Holy Light Mountain?!”
Of course, Chen Rui couldn’t say that his purpose was the Snow Dallet Tree which was the current ‘hostage’. He just showed a relaxed look, “If I say, I’m here for sightseeing, do you believe me, Your Holiness?”
At this time, there were a few more figures in the air behind. They landed on the ground one after another. These included Holy Lady Eudora, Paladin Captain Parsali and 3 cardinals. There was also a middle-aged person who went hand-in-hand with Eudora. He should be 1 of the 3 giant leaders, the master of Star Hall, Archbishop Pusmeer. Except for the Chief Judge Seus who was eradicating the Black Death Follower outside, the highest level of the Holy Church was all here.
“It’s you!” Looking at Chen Rui who maintained the face of ‘Richard’, Eudora was in disbelief. It was obvious that it was the Holy Family Hall’s Holy Light Guardian Knight whom she personally appointed! Chen Rui once shined in the riding battle, so Parsali and others who recognized him also showed shock.
At this moment, Eudora was even more shocked when she felt that the power of the Blood Oath of Light contract was suddenly disconnected: To cancel the contract, he must have Demi-God-level strength. This ‘Richard’ is actually…
“Who is he?” Vantis frowned.
Eudora replied, “His name is Richard, his real name may be Simon. He disguised as the subordinate of Parsali’s apprentice, Paul, to participate in the selection of the Divinity Temple Knight. He also tricked me into conferring him as the Holy Family Hall’s guardian knight. I didn’t expect him to be a spy!”
“Simon? What is your purpose?”
“Have you ever heard of the term ‘Diversion Tactic’? If I say, I still have accomplices, and I’m here only to attract your attention…” Chen Rui’s hands were still preparing to destroy the Snow Dallet Tree as he said leisurely, “Then guess where our real destination?”
With that said, Chen Rui deliberately looked at the mountain top deep into the clouds. As soon as he said this, Vantis, Eudora, and Pusmeer all shook together. Vantis’ figure appeared in the distance instantly, and his furious voice sounded, “I’ll go to the Light Divinity Temple. You take care of it here!”
TL: Hmmm, the situation still isn’t good. The pope who could pluck the Snow Dallet Flower was gone, so how did he plan to get the flower? Pokeball the entire tree?
