Chen Rui’s mind turned. Before entering the [Star Gate], he did something. His body burst out with a strong light. Several light balls with strong destructive breath shot toward Finoia and Michelle at the same time.
Murder the witness! Michelle could hardly believe her eyes. This trusted friend actually showed such a hideous true face!
After his identity was exposed, he killed the witnesses before leaving to avoid leaving clues… At least, it seemed so on the surface.
It was just like Chen Rui immediately dismissed himself as having anything to do with the mountain hobbits when he met the elf empress.
A few seconds before Chen Rui launched the [Aurora Shot], Finoia heard the reminder in his mind and a trace of understanding passed through his eyes. With a furious shout, the water-like magic waves appeared in front of him, spreading out to wrap everyone. At the same time, sharp blue lights were emitted from his hands as he fought back toward Chen Rui.
However, unexpected things happened. Whether it was Chen Rui’s attack, or Finoia’s protection and counterattack, they were all refracted by several beams of light projected from the air. They did not reach the destination, but were ‘refracted’ to the distance.
This phenomenon was similar to the space barrier, the protective move of Aquarius Holy Apprentice Colina that Chen Rui encountered. The difference was that the refraction of the light beam was continuous. Every time it was refracted, its power was greatly weakened. Chen Rui’s [Aurora Shot] only refracted 4 times before it disappeared without a trace, as did the counterattack of the elf grand master, but the power of this light beam was 100 times stronger than Colina’s space barrier!
Chen Rui was taken aback and he walked toward the [Star Gate] without hesitation. This step was taken, but the position of his body was strangely retreating instead of advancing. He was farther away from the [Star Gate]. This was true whether he moved forward or backward. After a few steps, he was tens of meters away from the [Star Gate]. Chen Rui’s pupils contracted, and he could already sense it. This is by no means a simple 20 meters, but countless partitioned spaces.
Chen Rui immediately used a teleportation in an attempt to cross the space, but after the teleportation, he found that he was still in the same place. He unwillingly activated the [Star Gate] again, but he was still unable to enter as before. The closer the distance was, the wider the distance pulled apart.
Chen Rui’s heart sank. The biggest trump card, [Star Gate], which enables escape at any time, is actually suppressed by such a method!
A gloomy voice in the sky sounded through everyone’s ears, “Pulos, if it was a race war, I would come directly to the center of the Silver Moon Celestial Capital, not in such a place! I came here just to hunt down a cultist who committed a serious crime!”
The deep voice had a touch of arrogance, “This is the Jade Forest Sea of Moonlight Goddess, not the Holy Light Mountain! Not only did you break the enchantment without authorization, but you also attacked the mechanics grand master and little princess of the elf tribe which has seriously violated the dignity of the elf tribe. If you still don’t leave, don’t blame me for being impolite!”
“Pulos! Put away those pretentious words! If the Jade Forest Sea insists on protecting this felon, then it must be really ready for war!”
The deep voice sneered coldly, “Exaggeration! This little guy is the so-called felon? He can actually cause a war between the Holy Light Mountain and the elf tribe?”
“Do you know what he did? He sneaked into the Holy Light Mountain and destroyed 3 Snow Dallet Trees!” Isyorul’s voice sounded colder, “Now, Pulos, are you sure you want to stop me?
The people below were shocked; even Landbis could not help but take a breath. What are the holy trees of the Holy Light Mountain? Not only is it a sign of faith, but it also involves many secrets related to miracles. In terms of status, it is almost equivalent to the elf tribe’s Tree of Nature. It is unexpected that ‘Richard’ actually caused such a big issue. He completely destroyed the 3 holy trees!
The elf’s super powerhouse, Pulos, was silent. Only after a long while did he ask, “It’s just this human?”
This question had already expressed the attitude of the elf tribe.
The attitude of the elf tribe’s super powerhouse to stay out of the incident was expected by Chen Rui. He didn’t want to hurt his friends anyway. What he really didn’t foresee was the failure of the [Star Gate]. Losing this escape trump card was tantamount to a desperate battle.
“Yes, this guy is good at changing appearance and escaping. Even the holy apprentices are deceived, so I had to activate power to break the enchantment and directly imprison this area. As for the rest, they are just victims who are being deceived.” Isyorul immediately answered. As the light flickered, everyone else was moved out and appeared in the distance except for Chen Rui in the light beam area.
This move made Pulos determined, “Then the elf tribe will not intervene in this matter again, but the Holy Light Mountain must compensate for the destruction of the enchantment in the future.”
“Okay!” Isyorul’s figure appeared in front of Chen Rui. This was a handsome man with brown hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a blue-gray robe with a book under his arm, looking like a polite scholar.
Race: Human (Mutated).
Comprehensive Strength Assessment: SS.
Physique: SS, power: SS, spirit: SS, speed: SS.
[Analysis]: Fire attribute, space ability.
Degree of danger: Extremely dangerous!
The strength of SS! Fully kingdomized level! Wait… His race is ‘human’? Not ‘angel’? Chen Rui recalled that Capricorn Holy Apprentice Clark once said that Isyorul was a 4-winged angel, so he couldn’t help but wonder.
In any case, this would be the strongest enemy he had faced in his life. Although the opponent did not reveal a special momentum, Chen Rui had a hunch that the strength of this ‘4-winged angel’ was even beyond the Octopus King or Lich King in the Dead Sea!
Even the Holy Dragon Rodriguez, whose kingdom was destroyed and had only a crippled soul, was not as good as Isyorul who was currently in the optimum stage.
Isyorul saw Chen Rui’s previous failed attempt, and he showed an expression of contempt, “Don’t waste your time! I know you have a special talent for space. You fled in public at the Holy Light Mountain and used this trick to confuse the senses to hide and escape the encirclement and suppression of the holy apprentices. Unfortunately, in my eyes, this ability is just a trivial trick. This is my kingdom. There are countless separate spaces. Your space door has been locked by my kingdom power. Unless you can defeat my kingdom, otherwise, even if I don’t attack, you will never be able to enter the space door.”
Chen Rui took a deep breath. His Star Power channeled at high speed, seeming to make his last desperate fight.
“Ignorant ant, haven’t you realized what kind of existence you are facing?” Isyorul’s eyes were full of disdain. “Blasphemer, I, the 4-winged angel, give you the last chance to tell me the location of the Snow Dallet Trees. I can grant you a pain-free death! Otherwise, your body and soul will live forever in the agonizing torment!”
“Angel?” Chen Rui gave a mocking expression, “I don’t know what made you abandon the true identity of a human, or is it just a trick to deceive yourself and others? As for blasphemy… Compared to those who stole faith power, I can be regarded as the most loyal believer of the Light God!”
Isyorul’s face changed slightly. He did not expect that this ant actually exposed 1 of the biggest secrets of the ‘angel’. His body was full of vigor, and his 4 fiery red light wings appeared behind him. The entire area where the light beam was cast was instantly filled with pressing scorching breath. The terrifying coercion made Chen Rui feel like being pressured in the boulder. Despite the comprehensive strength of S+, he was actually unable to move at all.
“I won’t talk nonsense with you! For the last time, where are the Snow Dallet Trees?” Isyorul’s voice used kingdom power as if it penetrated Chen Rui’s mind and buzzed. He was almost unable to have the will to resist.
At this time, the powerhouses of the elf tribe had approached as they heard the news. The leader was Empress Liv, but she was informed immediately by Pulos to not come forward. She just came to Michelle’s side.
The trial team of Starlight College also rushed over to join Landbis. They looked at the 2 people in the area of the light beam from a distance. The teachers and students of Starlight College were not ignorant people. The image of Isyorul and the intangible terrifying coercion made everyone look utterly shocked: The legendary angel! Demi-God powerhouse!
In the human world, Saint was already the highest realm that a so-called mortal could reach. However, above Saint, there was a super powerhouse close to God called the Demi-God. This was a collective term like the Demon Realm. Only powerhouses who really reached or approached that level would know that there were 3 levels – Kingdomized, [Armor of Faith], and Pseudo-God.
What surprised the teachers and students of Starlight College was that on the opposite side of the Demi-God, it was actually the loathsome ‘Richard’! However, judging from the current situation, ‘Richard’ was about to be annihilated by angels which made many people gloat.
“Since I can’t escape,” Chen Rui looked straight at Isyorul without fear, his momentum began to rise rapidly, “Then I have to try to bring you down.”
Now that there was no way to retreat, he could only battle.
“This is your answer?” Isyorul was startled, then he laughed as if he had heard the funniest joke. The surrounding space actually shook slightly under the laughter.
The ‘spectators’ in the distance, especially the teachers and students of Starlight College, couldn’t help but secretly ridicule someone’s boastfulness when they heard Chen Rui’s remark. Even if ‘Richard’ really reaches the peak stage of Saint, there is an insurmountable gap between Saint level and Demi-god level. It is just like a Saint powerhouse facing an ordinary Master or Warrior who can be easily obliterated.
Isyorul’s smile froze suddenly because he sensed that Chen Rui’s soaring momentum had far exceeded his expectations, and it was still rising as if some terrifying power was brewing. This actually gave him a kind of dangerous feeling.
Soon after, Isyorul saw the light; everyone saw the light.
The vigorous blue light seemed to burst out with countless brilliance. The entire forest was illuminated at this moment, and even the nearby Silver Moon Celestial Capital felt this shining brilliance.
The bright light gradually converged into the figure. Before everyone could see the specific image, the figure suddenly moved.
In an instant, everyone had an illusion that a meteor was flying toward Isyorul.
The naked eye could no longer keep up with the specific movements of the meteor; they could only feel the burst of brilliance. After a violent tremor of sight, everyone could finally see the situation inside.
Isyorul stepped back about 50 meters. The contempt on his face was replaced by seriousness. There were 2 terrifying drag marks on the ground, and the dazzling figure appeared on Isyorul’s original position, raising his fist wrapped in armor.
At this time, whether it was elf, human or the hobbit, all spectators almost simultaneously held their breaths. The angel is actually punched back by him!
Is this a Saint’s power? Many people reacted immediately, especially Landbis, with incredible light flashing in her beautiful eyes: ‘Richard’ is… a Demi-God powerhouse!
TL: How far is Chen Rui’s strength from the Demi-God powerhouse? Will he try the skill that he hasn’t used before?
