The name of 12 holy apprentices corresponded to the 12 zodiacs. In fact, there were more than 12 holy apprentices, but those who could have the zodiac title were definitely the top holy apprentices.
If it weren’t for extreme anger, Chen Rui might still compare these armored holy apprentices with the characters in a certain comic book in his memory. Now, only cold killing intent was left in his eyes.
The crisscrossing light in the battle cage space began to change. Chen Rui felt that his power was gradually weakened due to the disruption of some kind of foreign force. On the contrary, Murev and the other 2 were more vigorous and their speed as well as power increased. Obviously, they were buffed.
In the blink of an eye, Murev had already pounced to the front of Chen Rui. He didn’t resist it forcefully. Instead, he quickly retreated backward, avoiding a round of fierce attack. Murev didn’t let him go since he got the initiation. Murev pursued after him, but he realized that the scene around him was different. One after another dim images gradually became clearer. These were big and small balls that were slowly rotating according to the strange rhythm. The power that was buffed by the cage actually weakened rapidly while the breath of the enemy that had been retreating rose.
Clark and April looked at each other in surprise. This enemy can actually activate such a powerful force in the battle cage that confines everything, canceling out the special territory effect of the cage.
Chen Rui stopped retreating, and his left hand that was not holding a sword directly faced the giant golden arm. Murev was not surprised but rejoiced instead. His strength was also his advantage, second only to Taurus Holy Apprentice and Leo Holy Apprentice in the 12 holy apprentices. It fitted his wish that the other party battled with force.
Murev’s joy immediately vanished. Under the bizarre power of the water patterns from Chen Rui’s left hand, the giant golden arm with powerful strength couldn’t exert any force like it was in a quagmire. Chen Rui did not just use softness and ingenuity. After removing the impact of the golden arm, the soft palm turned into a blade in which he threw it out with force. The sharp qi in the air slashed Murev’s lower ribs which had no armor protection. The [Aura Blade] that could break his skin previously only left a white mark under Murev’s ribs. It seemed that after Murev wore the [Armor of Faith], his defensive power had been greatly improved.
Chen Rui’s mind shifted, and the power of the water patterns became more and more coherent and rapid. It looked as if it was constantly spinning around Murev. Murev roared again and again with irritation and anxiety. His golden arm was shining brightly. After countless loud explosions, Chen Rui’s body flew backward and retreated a few meters before he could stand firmly. There were faint blood marks on the corners of his mouth.
Murev stood still with several shocking wounds on his right ribs overflowing with a lot of blood. His body was trembling slightly as though he was enduring great pain.
Just now Chen Rui had actually launched countless [Aura Blade], and every slash was basically cut in Murev’s right rib with relatively weak protection. Even if Murev’s skin was tough, he couldn’t stand the sharp [Aura Blade]’s continuous slashing in the same part. Especially after the defense was broken, the kind of damage to the soul made him painful. The giant golden arm burst out with full force, shaking out an explosive power to completely shatter the soft water patterns and finally getting rid of the enemy’s nightmare entanglement.
Clark moved and his hands turned into phantasms which swayed swiftly. Countless playing cards flew toward Chen Rui in different arcs and trajectories like a sharp boomerang. As Chen Rui opened his palm, 3 [Aurora Shots] appeared and quickly revolved around him. All the approaching playing cards were detonated by the [Aurora Shots].
Chen Rui could now easily control and use various skills which amplified the power. For example, he activated the water swordsmanship combined with [Aura Blade] with bare hands, and now, he turned [Aurora Shot] into a body protection skill.
Several magic cards flew out and landed on the ground. They actually turned into knights holding crossed swords and surrounded Chen Rui. Chen Rui recognized that it was the Champion Knight in Fate Showdown. Chen finally understood. [Manifestation]! It turns out that this is Clark’s true strength.
In addition to the champion knight, more and more remaining magic cards had also appeared. The skill and power were the prototypes of the magic cards. They were divided into 2 camps, ranging from the highest S- to the lowest E-level. Only 2 the Golden King and the Dark Lord were S- level. The lower the strength of the rest, the greater the number. There were a total of 500-600 people.
The 2 camps were like real mini legions which were well-trained and well-versed in combined attack. Chen Rui was actually unable to destroy the formation in a short time, so he made a resolute decision, “[Destructive Aura Blow]!”
Countless sharp qi was flying all over the sky. After the shining sword qi, all the soldiers, including the Golden King and the Dark Lord, turned into flying ash. Clark’s face was pale, and it seemed to consume a lot of his vitality, but his hands still did not stop. The magic cards were continuously thrown out, and the troops appeared again- These magic cards were all condensed from the territory power. As long as Clark was not exhausted, the soldiers could be produced without limit.
The [Destructive Aura Blow] also consumed a huge amount of Chen Rui’s strength. He could not launch it in a while. He changed his tactics as he flew toward Clark with all his strength to capture the controller. As long as Clark was knocked down, these soldiers would naturally disappear.
Just as he was about to approach Clark, crisscrossing lights suddenly appeared, and Clark’s figure disappeared. This was Colina’s work. She could move her partners in the battle cage at will. In this battle, Colina was not the main attacker, but her role was the greatest.
Chen Rui’s attack was in vain and fell into the siege of the army. The situation suddenly became passive.
Just when Chen Rui cut down the head of a Glorious Knight Captain, a spear suddenly appeared behind the broken neck. The flame power wrapped in the hot flame power charged toward him.
Chen Rui parried with the Northsea Sword in time. Sparks splashed all around. The power on this spear was extremely strong and focused; the Northsea Sword almost got knocked out from his hand. When he counterattacked, April was gone. A few seconds later, the spear burst out again under the ribs of a demon leader behind him. Chen Rui had noticed in the [Analytical Eyes], so he turned back to block the sneak attack. When he suddenly noticed that the metal scorpion at the tip of the spear was missing, the warning sign in his heart suddenly surged. His figure disappeared instantly as the blood-red scorpion tail emerged out of the ground and missed the attack.
Just as Chen Rui’s teleported figure landed, a giant golden arm came again in a whistle. Murev’s physique was amazing; the injuries on his ribs had automatically recovered. Although his soul was still faintly aching, his fighting spirit was even more burning. He launched this blow with all his strength. The terrifying power made the surrounding space slightly distorted. Chen Rui couldn’t avoid it. A translucent defensive shield appeared around his body. This blow hit the defensive shield firmly and left several cracks in the defensive shield, but it didn’t collapse.
April’s spear appeared ghostly behind, stabbing the defensive shield. The blue dome shook, and nothing happened. Murev’s golden giant arm shone brightly, and the explosion sounded again. The defensive shield’s cracks spread rapidly- In addition to the great power buff, the giant golden arm was also the nemesis of all protective magic. After repeated violent shakes, the defensive shield finally collapsed.
Chen Rui retreated quickly, but he still couldn’t escape from the stab of April’s scorpion tail. A fiery poison invaded his body, and his movements suddenly slowed down. The vertical and horizontal light appeared ‘in time’ beside Chen Rui, turning into countless filaments and entwining him. The nearby space had irregular distortions. Chen Rui seemed to be frozen in a piece of multi-sided crystal. He couldn’t move at the moment.
“Hmph!” Murev walked over and scoffed, “Finally got him? With this kind of strength, you actually dare to call me weakling. I want to break his limbs.”
“Don’t cause trouble! He has been poisoned by April’s scorpion venom, and has lost the combat power. Furthermore, Colina’s crystal of imprisonment cannot be broken away. Let’s take him back to the Holy Light Mountain as soon as possible.” Clark said as he frowned in the distance. April nodded in agreement. The battle was very fierce. If the 4 of them were not working together, it would be difficult to defeat the enemy.
At this moment, the imprisonment crystal cracked. A violent and terrifying breath came out from the crack, and everyone was shocked.
In an instant, the crystal of imprisonment was torn apart, and a red beast broke out of the imprisonment. With a terrifying aura, it rushed ferociously toward Murev. Murev was utterly shocked. He could not move for a while, so he could only take it hard. At the moment of crisis, Colina launched the teleport again, and the crisscrossing light instantly took Murev to the distance and dodged the attack.
After the meandering red huge beast rushed into the air, it revolved around and merged with the figure burning in black flame. The black flame turned red, gathering amazing power and gradually sinking into the figure’s 2 blood-red eyes with an intense killing intent.
Before the 4 holy apprentices could react, Chen Rui’s figure appeared in front of the nearest Murev. Murev felt ashamed that he was attacked by the huge beast just now. As he saw the enemy appearing, he shouted furiously and launched the giant golden arm with full force.
This time, Chen Rui didn’t evade and greeted him with a fist. The 2 collided without any fancy move.
The entire battle cage shook for a while, Murev staggered back while Chen Rui remained motionless. It was the same as the previous duel, except that the subject was transferred. There were continuous bursts of sound from Chen Rui’s body, but he was unscathed. The space around Murev’s body distorted like a huge wave, and Murev’s huge body staggered and retreated.
Before he could stand firmly, a wind-like figure had already caught up. The sound of intensive blows fell on the ears of the others like a heavy hammer, “Bang bang bang…”
Colina tried her best to send Murev out, but the enemy’s terrifying power repelled her space power. It was not until Murev was knocked off that she seized the opportunity to transfer Murev away.
Murev, who fell beside Clark and April, looked like a honeycomb. His body was full of astonishing indented fist marks. Even the [Armor of Faith] was deformed and twisted. His eyes revealed a hint of real fear for the first time.
“[Star Explosion].” Chen Rui’s deep voice sounded. The extremely bright light, and the terrifying breath of destruction caused everyone to have the illusion of a starburst. The entire battle cage shook violently.
Finally, the light gradually extinguished. Murev, Clark, and April, who were in a triangular formation, joined forces to disperse the power. Although the power of this blow was terrifying, it still did not destroy the joint defense of the 3 holy apprentices, but all 3 of them were seriously injured, especially Murev, who was already badly injured. He was like a blood man as blood gushed out from the wound.
Just as the 3 people breathed a sigh of relief, their pupils suddenly shrank in unison. Chen Rui’s figure appeared in front of them with a person’s neck in his hand, Colina.
TL: He only used the [Scorching Dragon Possession], and he crushed them easily…
