On the Devil’s Snare Ship, Chen Rui looked back at the Hidden Misty Island surrounded by mist. Although he could not see the scene behind the mist, he could imagine the thin figure still waving.
As he didn’t know exactly what major abnormality had happened to the Land of Hatred, Chen Rui did not take Adeline with him, leaving Helen with her to accompany the naga girl who couldn’t see properly on the Hidden Misty Island.
“Still thinking about that snake girl? Hmph! Do you believe I will destroy that island now!?” Auglas was not happy on the side. Why didn’t you miss my precious girl?
When they saw Adeline on the island earlier, the naga girl tripped because of excitement and she was caught by Chen Rui. The old father-in-law began to suppress a certain son-in-law with a scrutinizing gaze.
Chen Rui ignored Auglas’s gaze. For the naga girl, he only had guilt in his heart. Adeline’s temperament was weak, but she had lived alone on this island for several months. The loneliness and fear alone were unbearable, and the stronger force from somewhere on the bottom of the Nether Sea also made the naga girl with keen senses to be tormented mentally every day.
“Adeline, do you remember the promise I made to you? Wait for me.”
The naga girl looked at the Devil’s Snare Ship that disappeared in the mist, and the last words that Chen Rui said echoed in her ears.
You will see the castle in the sky with your own eyes…
Your beautiful harper melody will intoxicate everyone…
Chen Rui took out a bottle of wine, toasted the old father-in-law, and briefly told the story of meeting Adeline, “In my heart, she is a very loving sister.”
This confession made the old father-in-law’s face a little paler. Sir Dark Dragon Emperor’s eyes flashed through the vicissitudes of life, and he never mentioned the topic of destroying the island anymore, but after drinking a big sip of wine, he caught a keyword, “Olypheus is also a ‘sister’? How many ‘sisters’ do you, greedy guy, have?”
“Lyrics?” Chen Rui looked at Auglas with a strange look, the latter felt puzzled, then the human shrugged, “Olypheus is still my sister for the time being, but I will work hard…”
“For the time being? You clearly are brushing me off!” Auglas said coldly, “But at least you didn’t lie. I warn you, except for Olypheus, the other ‘sisters’ can only be sisters!”
After these days of getting along, Chen Rui had a good understanding of the old father-in-law’s temperament. He held up the wine bottle and smiled slightly, “I understand.”
1 day later, the Devil’s Snare Ship that passed the Hidden Misty Sea entered the Nether Sea area.
There was no living thing in the Nether Sea because, under the cruel means of Lich King Glorios, all the creatures had become undead. Now that Lich King was annihilated, the undead that would obstruct them along the way disappeared naturally, so they were not attacked on the way, but the weather was still bad with a thunderstorm.
Lambost frowned, “Did you sense it, Moore?”
Moore nodded solemnly, “The element’s breath is quite disordered, full of restlessness and irritability as if a terrifying strength is being bred.”
“The sea faintly has a breath of the kingdom which is not very strong, but it feels weird.” Auglas’s observation angle was different from that of the 2 Elemental Kings, “It seems that it is not as easy as I imagined this time.”
After all, Chen Rui’s knowledge and experience were far inferior to the 3 of them. He just faintly sensed the abnormal breath. He asked, “Your Highness Lambost, the Land of Hatred should be somewhere in the deep sea of this sea area. Back then, Hegel and I used the dark elemental’s ship to dive into the seabed, but there is no dark element ship now. I wonder if Your Highness has a way to go to the seabed?”
“Of course, I’m the Water Elemental King.” When Lambost took off the Crown of Wave and threw it into the sea, a strange ship appeared in front of everyone which was a little like a yacht. It was completely transparent as if it was made of glass. It glowed with magnificent blue light, “Just call it… Aqua Water Ship.”
Chen Rui collected the sandmen into sandstone essence, put away the Devil’s Snare Ship, and entered the Aqua Water Ship together with Auglas and Moore. The Aqua Water Ship gradually closed, and its appearance began to undergo wonderful changes, transforming into the shape of a big fish before it dived into the sea.
The speed of the Aqua Water Ship was very fast. It was like a real sea fish, flexibly diving in the water. The light it emitted was not very bright, but Chen Rui could clearly see the outside situation from the inside as if he was sharing the vision with the fish.
The wonders were more than that. In the belly of the big fish, they did not feel the water pressure or turbulence outside; it was like flat ground. Various furnishings such as tables and seats could appear at any time just like the mimicry magic of water element. Compared with this, the dark elemental’s ship, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Ship, that surprised Chen Rui could only be described as way more inferior.
Lambost opened his hands, and that hand actually merged with the wall of the Aqua Water Ship. There were 2 more golden lights in big fish’s eyes, sensing the changes in the element power in the sea and adjusting the direction.
After 1 day and 1 night, a luminous spot appeared in front of them.
With the advancement of the Aqua Water Ship, the luminous spot had become bigger, but the specific situation was not clear.
“It should be here.” Lambost stared at the bright place ahead, “This enchantment is very powerful. I want to try to breach it forcibly first.”
The Aqua Water Ship shone, and a thick blue light ball was ejected from the cylinder outlet. It was like a giant sea bomb, shooting toward the bright place in an attempt to open a gap. However, the enchantment of the light only trembled slightly, then countless rays of light like meteors drew white trajectories in the water, blasting toward the Aqua Water Ship.
As Lambost’s mind shifted, the Aqua Water Ship was wrapped in a huge crystal ball. There was a massive shock when the white lights hit the crystal ball. One after another cracks appeared on the crystal ball, but they survived this round of attack in the end.
Chen Rui was secretly shocked. When Hegel and I came here previously, there was absolutely no such powerful enchantment, plus they would take the initiative to attack the intruder. Otherwise, we would be destroyed before we entered last time, and it would be impossible for the subsequent events to happen.
What abnormality actually occurred?
“This is the power of the light element! It is actually comparable to the strength of the Crown of Wave.” Lambost frowned, “Such a pure light element strength, is it…”
“Light origin fragment!” Chen Rui reacted and said solemnly.
Lambost and others all heard Chen Rui talk about the battle with Rodriguez at that time. Apart from going to the human world, which was a secret related to the Super System, Chen Rui did not conceal the rest of the details including the light origin fragment and dark origin fragment.
Moore’s eyes showed doubt, “Without the Light Elemental King, how can the light origin fragment exhibit such a strength?”
“You will know the truth once the enchantment is breached.” Auglas put down the wine bottle in his hand and stared at the dazzling light in front of him. There seemed to be a black flame burning in his pupils.
“Sir Auglas, the light element is a big nemesis for you. Besides, we don’t know what else will happen inside. Don’t waste your strength now.” Moore stood up slowly, “I have a way. Although the strength of this enchantment is strong, it is relatively scattered. It will become weak when attacking. I will go out to attract the power of these light elements, and Lambost will take this opportunity to use the water origin fragment to break the enchantment… Go all in, don’t preserve your strength.”
“I always go by the saying, ‘the problem that can be solved by 30% strength should never be solved by 40%’, but from the current situation, I’m afraid that it will take 100%.” Lambost smiled slightly, “But you haven’t completely digested the earth imprint yet. The consumption of strength is definitely unavoidable, just don’t be shattered.”
Moore also smiled, “Not to that extent, the defense of the earth elementals is not delicate like the water elementals.”
“Wait a minute, Moore, I’ll go.” Chen Rui said.
“You?” Lambost frowned, “It’s not the time to show off. Even Moore with the strongest defensive power can’t be safe under the power of that light element.”
“I am not trying to show off, but I’m more confident than Moore in the face of this kind of strength. Moore, do you trust your friend?”
“It’s the best friend.” Moore added a word, then he sighed, “Well, I choose to trust as always.”
Lambost did not talk nonsense. He opened the exit of the Aqua Water Ship. Chen Rui smiled at the 3 and flew out.
As soon as he went out, he sensed the terrifying pressure of the deep sea. If it was an ordinary person, his bones and internal organs would have been shattered, but for Chen Rui whose physique had reached S+ and trained in the deep sea training ground of the Super System for hundreds of years, it was not a big deal.
A faint brilliance appeared in Chen Rui’s hand. With a wave from a distance, a ripple of vacuum wrapped in water slid toward the enchantment. The enchantment immediately responded, and countless brilliance was launched.
Chen Rui didn’t evade, but he made a defensive posture as he was wrapped in white light in the blink of an eye, causing a violent tremor.
As soon as the white lights attacked Chen Rui, the Aqua Water Ship quickly changed into the form of a swordfish that was shining in blue light, and rushed toward the enchantment. The entire enchantment shook violently, and a gap appeared as if a blade pierced through it.
At this time, the tail of the ‘swordfish’ turned into a tentacle, rolling up the figure in the fading white light, then they quickly passed through the closing gap.
“Are you okay?” Moore looked at the almost unscathed Chen Rui in surprise, “Your defense really surprised me.”
In fact, unlike Lambost, who was engrossed in Crown of Wave, Moore also discovered that the light element strength seemed to be devoured by Chen Rui’s body. It might be related to his human identity or some special physique, but Moore did not point it out.
“It’s considered okay.” Auglas’s tone was disparaging, but his expression was a little proud, “Without some strength, how can he be worthy of my daughter?”
Now that they had entered a strange, dry and waterless space, Lambost kept the Crown of Wave.
In this space, the sea was blocked by the sky, and the water was faintly visible. It was the Land of Hatred.
The only building was the white tall tower in the distance. Above the tower, there were 2 strange forces flying around, 1 was a billowing black gas, the other was a dazzling white light. The 2 forces mixed together and formed a figure that faintly resembled the shadow of a giant dragon.
A terrifying power surged at Chen Rui and the others as if sensing the arrival of the intruders.
Auglas’ facial expression changed slightly. As his figure flashed, he appeared in front of Chen Rui with black flames on his hands. There were countless phantasm-like translucent scenes approaching them.
“Don’t move, this is the fight of Demi-God-level kingdom power!” The crown’s light on Lambost’s head flickered, and a soft protective force wrapped the 3 of them.
TL: Did the Dark Dragon Emperor ‘wake’ up in advance like Chen Rui?

To have a tsundere father-in-law is funny but also a little creepy too.
I wonder if he will get a chance to fight here^^ Perhaps he can absorb tons of Light and it becomes a permanent buff somehow. I still don’t really understand what his physique does other than being more or less immune to Light. I didn’t read for several months, so I don’t remember really
