“The contract power in the slime is very weird, I can’t cancel it, but you may not be able to kill me through the destructive power of the contract.” Rodriguez’s gold and silver pupils glowed strangely, “Want to try it? Maybe something interesting will happen?”
Playing hard to get? Or is it a confusion strategy? Chen Rui kept his distance from Rodriguez vigilantly as his mind shifted quickly. The soul of Dodo should not disappear completely. I’m not sure if he is assimilated or merged. With the master-servant contract, killing Dodo is just a mere effort.
Rodriguez snatched Dodo’s body to survive, but he has not destroyed Dodo’s original soul. It should not be because of soft-heartedness. It must be because the 2 have already had a subtle relationship. If Dodo is killed, even if Rodriguez does not die, he should suffer considerable damage as well.
For a long time, Dodo has played a mascot who only knows to flatter… gluttonous and lazy, plus a cunning servant who secretly reports to the madams.
Chen Rui had been in the Demon Realm since he first entered the Demon Realm. On the road of training and survival, his hands had been stained with blood. So many lives were ended in his hands. He was resolute and merciless even to beauties such as Sabrina and Colina. However, facing the subordinate that seemed to be easily discarded, he couldn’t bear to be merciless.
Dodo once shared difficulties with Chen Rui in Mountain Xilang. This time he could enter the treasure of the Dark Dragon Emperor thanks to its discovery. The years of living together also made the slime unknowingly become part of the ‘family’ in the Dark Moon.
“You… How do you know Dodo is a slime? Don’t kill Dodo!”
“Who dares to stop Master Dodo’s way!”
“Sir Dodo is really amazing, I finally found a treasure of the highest quality!”
“Master, don’t blame me. I was forced by madam…”
“Master! This is Dodo’s collection for many years! I stole it with great effort from a ferocious demonic beast…”
Chen Rui took a deep breath and cut off the idea of using the contract as a killing move – Defeat Rodriguez by myself! Then try my best to try to save the slime!
At this moment, a familiar voice sounded.
“Don’t act rashly! The talent of the slime merges the power of light and darkness, but he confines Rodriguez’s soul instead! If you eliminate the soul of the slime, Rodriguez will fully control the body, truly merge and be in harmony with the kingdom!”
The sound came from the ‘moon’ in the sky. It was Hegel’s voice. Chen Rui was startled, and he understood that the Dark Elemental King had involuntarily become a part of Rodriguez’s [Light and Dark Kingdom]!
“Damn it!” Rodriguez’s trick to lure Chen Rui into annihilating Dodo was exposed. He was infuriated. As his pupils flashed, Hegel’s voice suddenly became weak.
“Just defeat him and take away the 2 element origin fragments…”
Chen Rui only managed to hear this sentence before he sensed a danger. Rodriguez was already close in the blink of an eye as he punched. Chen Rui had already crossed his arms to defend. The opponent’s fist was extremely powerful, making him walk a few steps to the side. His arm was aching. Before he regained his balance, Rodriguez’s figure had appeared behind him. Chen Rui immediately launched a teleport, dodging the opponent’s kick.
Rodriguez was about to pursue, but he frowned suddenly. A shield with the head of the giant dragon appeared in his hand. Sparks splattered as he blocked Chen Rui’s slash, but the intangible sharp qi of the blade passed through the defense of the dragon shield, leaving an astonishing wound on Rodriguez’s cheek.
“You even have this trick. Unfortunately, you forgot that this is an immortal body.” The wound on Rodriguez’s face quickly healed at a speed visible to the naked eye, and he recovered in an instant. “This trick is really interesting…
Before he finished his sentence, his figure appeared in front of Chen Rui’s eyes. His 5 fingers scratched toward him like a beast claw, exuding terrifying red lightning.
S++ level’s speed was extremely amazing. Even if Chen Rui reacted in time to retreat, 5 shallow claw marks were left on his ribs. Although this claw did not break the Mystic Jade Armor’s defense, some remaining power still penetrated the armor, making him feel a burning pain.
“Hehe… how is my trick?” Rodriguez didn’t pursue it as his voice was filled with triumph.
This kind of claw strength was very similar to the [Aura Blade] just now. The direct power was still more powerful, and the intangible sword qi was relatively weak. This was enough to make Chen Rui secretly shocked. Due to Dodo’s timid personality and laziness, he originally had a strong potential, but his combat power was very low. After being taken over by Rodriguez, these talents became more difficult to deal with.
Other than the equal level of spirit power, Chen Rui’s other qualities were below Rodriguez. The most important thing was that he was restrained by the Shackles of True Flame and could not activate the [Pole Star Transformation], so he could only fight with S+ strength. A fierce battle was inevitable. “You don’t have the slightest hope of winning. If you give up resistance, I can make your death easier.” Rodriguez’s claw was sizzling with lightning. Chen Rui seemed to see a terrifying giant dragon figure roaring at him.
Chen Rui did not hesitate or fear at all. There were countless stars around his body as he rushed to the giant dragon.
The Hidden Misty Island.
The elegant harp sound echoed in the haze like countless elves flying with a touch of sadness, bringing thoughts to the distant sky.
“It’s so beautiful.” Helen showed an intoxicated expression, “I have never heard such beautiful music. What kind of tune is this?”
Although the little mermaid princess had a strong resistance to the naga girl at the beginning, for the 2 music-loving persons, there was nothing better to communicate than music. The distance between the 2 gradually narrowed. After a few days, they became friends.
“Castle in the Sky.” Adeline’s dim eyes seemed to have a strange light beating, “This is my favorite song. It is composed by Sir Aguile.”
“That bad guy?” There was an incredible light in the little mermaid princess’ golden eyes, “Are you sure?! He can make such a beautiful song?”
“Helen, I have told you several times. Sir Aguile is definitely not a bad guy.” The naga girl had a nostalgic expression on her face, “Life can be taken away, but hope will always exist. Without him, I as a sacrifice would have died in despair more than once. I will always remember that when we first met, he said that life can be taken away, but hope will always exist.”
“Hmph!” Helen’s pretty eyebrows wrinkled, “You’re too kind and don’t know how sinister people are. Don’t be fooled by this guy’s sweet words!”
Adeline smiled confidently, “The mouth can lie, but the heart can’t lie. I can clearly sense the persistence and kindness in his heart… You have misunderstood him. I believe you will understand if you spend some time with him.”
“I don’t want to spend time with that kind of bastard…” The little mermaid suddenly felt depressed when she thought that this was not up to her.
Hope, does it exist forever… The 2 of them were silent for a while with their own concerns.
After a long time.
The siren’s voice suddenly sounded. It was that ‘Castle in the Sky’ with no songs, no accompaniment, only a light and melodious humming with a hint of hope in her heart, even if the hope was in the sky.
Tower of Glory.
The shining flames in the space went from intense to dim and then disappeared.
A whole day had passed unknowingly.
After a violent collision, the 2 fighting figures finally separated. They were looking for the best time for the next attack.
“Unbelievable strength.” Rodriguez took a deep breath and gradually adjusted his breathing. “I didn’t expect that you could fight me to such an extent!”
Chen Rui did not speak, but he violently gasped and gripped the sword in his hand. His body was full of shocking wounds, and his physical strength was extremely exhausted. Despite the passive characteristics of recovery and self-healing, plus the supplement of potion, his strength was almost exhausted too.
Rodriguez’s body did not have any wounds, but his armor was covered with cracks and holes. The light of the gold and silver pupils also dimmed a lot, showing the intensity of the battle.
“Multiple territories, time law… these are no longer ordinary powerhouse methods; even ordinary Demi-God can’t have this kind of law!” Rodriguez’s voice was full of surprise, “What surprised me most is that sword in your hand, as well as the mask and shield. They should be… What kind of existence are you? You can actually surpass the power of the bloodline to control the legendary supreme…”
Chen Rui still did not answer. All he could do was to seize every second of his precious time to replenish his combat power. Up to now, he had exhausted his trump cards. Any other enemy would have already collapsed, but Dodo’s physique was too special. There was simply no solution for that kind of immortal body and super self-healing ability. Ordinary attacks were almost ineffective; the only thing that could restrain it was the Sword of Fallen Angel with the [Soul Searing] feature.
After it hit an enemy, it would directly kill and split the enemy’s soul power, then it would devour the flesh and blood into the user’s strength.
“No matter who you are, you will be a loser today.” Rodriguez suddenly thought of something, “This slime has a special talent for devouring which can have the opportunity to gain the ability of the devoured. I want to devour you, maybe there will be unexpected surprises by then.”
With that said, Rodriguez couldn’t help laughing with hands on his hips. The kind of smug attitude was almost… just like Dodo in the usual days.
Rodriguez reacted instantly again and put his hand down, “Damn habit.”
It was not the first time that Chen Rui had discovered the existence of this ‘habit’. He had used this ‘flaw’ to avoid being killed 3 times before. The effect of Dodo’s soul on this body was still there, but Rodriguez had become dominant.
Wait… habit? Chen Rui had an idea. He moved in an instant, and the Sword of Fallen Angel in his hand touched Rodriguez’s armpit quickly.
Rodriguez was about to fight back when he saw that there was something in the opponent’s hand – a fruit with a strange fragrance.
When Chen Rui threw the fruit into the sky, Rodriguez involuntarily turned into a horse-shaped demonic beast, jumping toward the sky. While catching the fruit, he felt a pain in his abdomen as he was pierced by the Sword of Fallen Angel. The characteristics of [Soul Searing] caused Rodriguez’s soul power to be severely wounded.
Rodriguez screamed as he desperately broke away from the sword. He returned to his human form and fell to the ground as he shouted, “What is actually going on!”
