The Holy Blessing Hall at the Holy Light Mountain,
“A bunch of trash!” Isyorul sneered coldly, “The first time, 2 out of 4 holy apprentices were seriously injured and the other 2 died; the second time, 8 holy apprentices were fooled around. They didn’t even touch the enemy in the end!”
Holy Lady Eudora and Archbishop Pusmeer bowed their heads and said nothing. In the Clear Mirror City battle, Cancer Holy Apprentice Murev and Aquarius Holy Apprentice Colina died, Capricorn Holy Apprentice Clark and Scorpio Holy Apprentice April were seriously injured. The news of Chief Bishop Phil’s death made the entire Loya Empire’s church succumb to chaos. The Holy Light Mountain really had to re-evaluate the strength of that mysterious enemy.
Vantis quickly summoned the remaining 8 holy apprentices to the Clear Mirror City area to stand by, and he used the Holy Light Mountain authority to use the [Teleportation Portal] of several empires; they were ready to use teleportation to rush to the enemy’s location at any time. The 8 great holy apprentices finally got the intel through Isyorul’s [Divine Spying] and set up an ambush in the Pala City of Loya Empire, but the enemy mysteriously disappeared.
The whole city was sealed up by the church with all its strength. They searched inside out, but found nothing.
“Sir Yvesrul, please calm your anger.” Pope Vantis spoke up, “Although the enemy is cunning, the general location is in the east. He can’t go far. Sir, please activate [Divine Spying] to find his whereabouts.”
Isyorul flipped his hand and the blood bead reappeared. The original dark red color has become pale red, and it looked extremely thin as if it may disappear at any time, “[Divine Spying] can only be activated for the last time, and it must not be wasted easily. The Snow Dallet Tree is probably still in the hands of this guy. It seems that I need to make a move personally!”
Vantis exclaimed, “With sir taking action, this enemy will surely be easily taken down! I wish sir success in advance!”
“Of course!” Isyorul proudly said, “I still need some time to integrate the power of the artifact that Sir Raphael gave me back then. You order to control the entire border of the Loya Empire first, and the holy apprentices will stay in Pala City temporarily; don’t get in the way. After I completed the fusion and arrived in the eastern region, I will use the divine eye with [Divine Spying] to sense him. No matter how cunning the person is, he cannot escape from me!”
The people in the church wouldn’t expect that Chen Rui was not anxiously in the Loya Empire at this time. He had come to the Starlight Empire border through the [Teleportation Array]. He first used the teleport point in the Clear Mirror City to arrive at the Starlight Empire’s Venus City, then he set the star point in Venus City before returning to the Clear Mirror City. He went all around to arrive at Pala City. The holy apprentices were really fooled. When they concentrated their forces to encircle Chen Rui, he returned to the Starlight Empire with the [Star Gate], changed his appearance, and walked around the gate of the church in Venus City openly. No one paid any attention to him.
Chen Rui didn’t know exactly how many times Isyorul had used the [Divine Spying], but judging from this siege, it was used at least once. As long as it was consumed again, the medium object of [Divine Spying] could be exhausted. Otherwise, he could delay another 1 month and return to the Demon Realm directly. Chen Rui didn’t believe that Isyorul had the ability to chase him all the way to the Demon Realm. Even if he could still use the [Divine Spying] or see anything in across the A-level space, he could only stare.
Chen Rui was going to the Blue Star City in the south of the Starlight Empire. In addition to playing a delay tactic with the church people, this trip had another purpose, which was to set off from the port of the Blue Star City, pass the Ice Sea area, and go to the elf tribe location at the Jade Forest Sea.
Before returning to the Demon Realm. he needed to visit the Grand Master Finoia of the elf tribe.
In the first battle of the Clear Mirror City, Chen Rui unexpectedly received lots of fire energy from Chief Bishop Phil. Not only did Pastor Clyde bribed the high-quality fire element crystals, but Phil, who majored in fire element training, also had a lot of fire element crystals in store. This included the fire essence jade and red obsidian whose quality was no less than the flame soul stone. Except for the flame soul stone bead string left as a souvenir, he stuffed the rest into the space ring where the phoenix egg was located.
In the following days, the phoenix egg laid quietly in the space ring, seeming to enjoy the fire crystals in comfort and did not cause trouble. This quietness remained until Chen Rui bought the sea area map of the Ice Sea and left the Blue Star Sea port on the third day, which was also the second day of Shura’s resurrection.
Shura was annihilated by the power of the Light Divinity Temple on the top of the Holy Light Mountain. After Chen Rui paid a lot of aura, he was finally reborn. With Shura plus Chen Rui’s own strength, even if he encountered the 8 holy apprentices head-on, he could escape easily- It’s possible to fight head-on, but if I left some bloodstains or something else again, it will be troublesome if the ‘weird eyes’ get it.
To be honest, with this kind of surveillance skill, I will suffer a huge loss if I am spied on ‘bed’ after I return to the Demon Realm.
As the name suggested, the Ice Sea’s water temperature was quite low. There were many icebergs on the islands in the sea area. The strange thing was that the water surface with the temperature below zero was not frozen which made it easier for the Devil’s Snare Ship to sail through. There were also many active creatures, especially the kind of silver flying fish that looked like wild geese and lined up to glide on the water; it was a spectacular view.
Chen Rui was admiring the wonders of the Ice Sea when he suddenly felt the ring vibrate violently. He thought all the fire element crystals were exhausted, so he quickly explored with his mind and found that most of the fire element crystals were still there. However, the few high grade goods like fire essence jade and red obsidian that were depleting yesterday had disappeared. The phoenix egg vibrated greatly, and the space ring was in danger of bursting. Chen Rui quickly took it out.
As soon as the phoenix egg was taken out, there was a feeling of scorching heat in the nearby cold air. The silver flying fishes in the distance seemed to feel something terrifying and fled in horror.
The pale red phoenix egg had turned crimson, and it exuded a horrifying heat wave. The nearest ship sail actually started burning. Chen Rui was taken aback. He quickly asked the sandmen to take down the sails of the ship. Not only that, the ship also began to heat up quickly. Fortunately, the material of the ship was extraordinary, so the rest of the ship was not ignited. A lot of steam came out from the surrounding ice-like sea water.
Chen Rui sensed the powerful breath of life exuded by the phoenix egg. It was probably about to hatch. He quickly let the sandmen fully activate the emergency magic crystal power thruster to drive toward the nearest ice island.
If someone was nearby, he could see a big ship braving a lot of steam moving forward at an incredible speed. In the waters where the big ship passed, many fishes floated up with white bellies.
The temperature of the phoenix egg was rising. Even Chen Rui had to activate the power for protection. The ship was already faintly red, the sandman’s overly dry body also had a tendency to collapse, and it seemed that they couldn’t hold it anymore.
Chen Rui decisively kept the sandmen into the sandstone essence immediately and put the Devil’s Snare Ship into the storage space. He rapidly flew toward the ice island while holding the phoenix egg exuding the terrifying heat.
After the rays of light flew fast for a while, a [Sonic Boom] sounded, and he finally arrived on the ice island. Wherever he passed, the ice that had not melted for thousands of years melted. Even Chen Rui couldn’t bear that kind of temperature.
He was about to place the phoenix egg on the ground. Unexpectedly, there was a suction from the phoenix egg which stuck to his hands, and the suction became stronger and stronger, absorbing the power in Chen Rui’s body like [Star Devouring]. Chen Rui instinctively wanted to break away from the suction when he suddenly sensed a strange mental fluctuation from the phoenix egg. He suddenly understood that this was the accumulation of energy for the little phoenix right before hatching. He endured the high temperature at the moment without resisting.
The temperature was getting higher and higher, the air was full of rich fire elements, and the phoenix egg emitted a faint flame. The flames flickered and dimmed. It seemed ordinary, but it actually contained extremely terrifying heat. Chen Rui’s skin could no longer resist it as it started to redden and blistered. His hair also gave off an unpleasant burnt smell – If it weren’t [Anti- Magic] and the self-healing physique, he had become a coke with such a close distance.
When Chen Rui’s mind moved, a black flame was burning on his body. It was the fire of Nirvana.
As soon as the fire of Nirvana appeared, the burned part gradually healed, and the flame of the phoenix egg became scorching, and it became 1 with the fire of Nirvana. It gave Chen Rui a feeling of being connected to it, and he actually slowly adapted to that kind of high temperature.
There was a ‘ding ding’ sound from the phoenix egg. Something seemed to be pecking from inside, and a crack finally appeared. The crack became bigger and bigger with the effort of a small sharp mouth, and the egg shell was pecked open.
A clear phoenix chirp sounded. Chen Rui saw a sea of flame in an instant as if a huge fire phoenix was rising into the sky. Within a radius of tens of kilometers, the ice and snow instantly melted into water, then it quickly evaporated.
The phoenix’s phantasm and flames gradually faded, and the temperature gradually returned to normal. What appeared in Chen Rui’s palm was a little red bird.
This little bird was about the same size as a newborn chick, and it was covered with fluffy flaming red feathers. It looked very cute, but it didn’t look like a phoenix in any way.
The closed eyes of the little bird slowly opened. It seemed that they were still not adapted to the external light. One could see that its pupils were faintly golden, and the mucus of the eggshell gradually penetrated into Chen Rui’s hands from his palm to his body. The originally burn scars and skin recovered in the blink of an eye.
Comprehensive Strength Assessment: A-
Physique: A, Strength: A-, Spirit: A, Speed: A-
Attribute: Fire attribute. Nirvana.
As expected of the phoenix, it already had the strength of the early stage of the Demon Emperor when it was born. If it grew up, reaching the Demon Overlord level was definitely not a problem.
The little red bird saw Chen Rui and made a chirping sound which sounded very pleasing to the ears. In the [Analytical Eyes], it became a young girl’s immature voice, “Mommy!”
Chen Rui knew that many newborn animals, especially birds, could easily regard the first creature they saw as their mother. He scratched his head and corrected, “I’m not your mom.”
“I just… Oh, well, I’m daddy.”
“Got it, mommy!”
This little phoenix was clever, cute and very likable. Chen Rui wanted to bring it back to the Demon Realm, but unfortunately, it had hatched and couldn’t enter the space equipment. He sighed, “If only you can get back into the eggshell…”
“Eggshell! Eggshell! Got it, mommy!”
The little phoenix actually walked toward the eggshell. Chen Rui was taken aback, Could it really go back into the eggshell?
The little phoenix quickly ate up the eggshell.
TL: Never expect his first offspring is a phoenix🤣… There is no way Chen Rui leaves it here alone in the human world right?
