Facing Raizen’s horrifying strength, Chen Rui shook his head with only firmness in his eyes, “No matter if you are Raizen or Raizen the Great, and I don’t care if the woman behind me is Shea or Shea the Great, I only know that she is my woman. If you want to touch my woman, step on my dead body first!”
This sentence was resolute. Even those elder families’ Demon Overlords who had been questioning the identity of Prince Consort Chen Rui were moved.
There was no king or prince consort at this moment, only a man who protected his woman.
“I admit that your incredible ability is daunting.” Raizen’s fist faintly revealed a purple light, “Sometimes I get hurt when I attack you, but it doesn’t mean that I dare not kill you. Are you sure you are prepared to risk your life?”
Shea stood quietly on the city wall. After Chen Rui flew out, she seemed to have never seen his hints and gestures to leave. Instead, she stood there quietly while watching the figure.
The back of Chen Rui suddenly shined brightly. The 4 colors of yellow, black, blue and red light converged into a long rainbow and flew toward Raizen. In the blink of an eye, it turned into a colorful element cage, trapping Raizen in it.
“This is the first time I have seen such pure magic elements. There are actually 4 kinds of magic elements, and the magic means and control power are also the strongest I have ever encountered. It’s a pity that your magic power has been exhausted. If you have the heyday of the previous blow, you may still be able to stop me…” Raizen smashed the element cage with a punch. After breaking through the cage, he went straight to Zola.
There were no fancy moves or gorgeous changes. Only pure and simple movements from beginning to end; this was Raizen.
Chen Rui’s facial expression changed, and he instantly moved to the front of Zola. The faint brilliance in his hand flashed as he activated the [Star Diversion] to divert the punch impact.
However, Raizen was already familiar with his ‘stunt’. The afterwave of his punch was endless. The mere 10 seconds of [Star Diversion] could not completely eliminate it. Chen Rui could not activate [Demonic Flies Transformation] with Zola behind him, so he had to activate [Water Profound Mystery] and forcefully resist it. Under the strong force, he and Zola were knocked out and landed on the ground. Zola was fine while Chen Rui’s nose and mouth had blood spills; his injuries were obviously serious.
Dodo and Paglio flew over quickly to block in front of them to prevent Raizen’s next blow.
Raizen did not attack again, “Aguile, female magician, demonic beast that can be reborn, and also… poison dragon, you all have the potential that attracted my attention and may become my true opponents in the future! It’s a pity that you can’t resist my punch even with all of you working together. I give you a chance to get out of here! When you think you have enough strength, you can challenge me at any time! However, my patience is limited. If you keep persisting, you will… completely lose your future. “
Chen Rui helped Zola stand up and was silent for a moment, then he suddenly spoke up, “Zola, I’m sorry.”
Zola was taken aback, “What?”
“I’m sorry that in your long life, I can only be a passerby.” Chen Rui smiled slightly, “I will apologize to others if it is you or any of them. This is the punishment of having the crystal harem. The male protagonist no doubt has to make a blood sacrifice.”
“What?” Zola shook her head, “I don’t understand.”
“I know that you know. Your 6 elements kingdom, your experiment and the completion of research. There are still many important things that have not been completed. It also contains my hard work, don’t let them go to waste. Remember 1 sentence, time will dilute a lot of things. “
“What?” Zola’s spectacle lenses were a little blurry as she still repeated stubbornly.
(The most important thing for me… Don’t you understand? Bastard!)
Suddenly, Dodo on the side was baffled, “Master, my contract…”
It turned out that Chen Rui had already canceled Dodo’s master-servant contract. Not only Dodo, but all spiritual links were forcibly cut off by him.
Chen Rui patted Dodo on the head and looked at Paglio, “It’s an honor to meet you, my friend.”
The poison dragon looked at Chen Rui blankly for a while, shook his head, and took advantage of the situation to dry the warm tears in his eyes, “Dragons don’t need friends, but… partners are exceptions. Don’t talk nonsense, I am too lazy to talk with you.”
“What a tangling and unnecessary emotion.” On the wall behind, Shea’s lament sounded.
“Aguile.” Shea’s voice seemed very indifferent, “If you still ‘love’ me in your heart, then leave quickly. Take good care of my sister, Alice, and kill Raizen to avenge me in the future. “
“Shea?” Chen Rui frowned.
“I don’t want to die, but unfortunately, it’s not my time. It’s useless for you to fight to death now. It’s better to stay alive and be useful. The Fallen Angel Empire needs you, and Alice needs you…”
The tone of these words had changed a little, which was definitely not the usual Shea’s tone. Chen Rui saw through her real thoughts at a glance, and shouted, “Shea! If you are still my woman, don’t say it again!”
Shea suddenly smiled, and her smile was full of disdain, “What a joke! When have I been your woman? Our marriage has been deliberately delayed by me, and I haven’t even let you touch me at all! You still don’t understand? I’ve been using you to destroy Obsidian and using your strength to fight against Raizen. Unfortunately, you disappointed me so much. You’re not Raizen’s opponent at all. You can’t even protect the woman you value most!”
Shea ignored him as she turned back and said loudly, “Generals of the Fallen Angel Empire, I now give the final order to pass the throne to my sister, Alice! She has been approved by the Sword of Fallen Angel, and you will be loyal to her just as you are to me. She will lead you to continue fighting until the invaders are driven out of our homeland! I, Shea. Lucifer, sincerely thank you for being with me all the way. Thank you for your loyal protection. Even if I’m not by your side, please believe that my spirit and soul will always watch and bless your brave figures in the sky. I have never left you.”
“Your Majesty!” The generals and soldiers of the Fallen Angel Empire all knelt down on one knee as they looked at the figure slowly floating down the city wall. Everyone’s eyes were red.
Someone sang first, then more and more people sang. After a while, the whole fortress’ sky was filled with cohesive singing.
Night gathers, and now my watch begins.
It shall not end until my death.
I shall be the dawn of light that breaks the sky, awakening the sleeping heroic spirit.
For this loving homeland, I shall become the sword in the cold night, swaying fiery blood.
Burn out the darkness.
For the relatives who are watching behind.
I shall abandon cowardice and longing, abandon honor and disgrace, abandon my life, and guard here.
For this night and all the nights to come.
The tragic singing not only infected the defending soldiers of the Fallen Angel Empire, but also the army of the Bloody Empire. The familiar singing made Gustav at the back of the army clench his fists. Teris looked at the sky with a deep gaze, and a smile appeared at the corner of his mouth. No one knew what he was thinking.
The mourning soldier would surely win. As far as the current momentum was concerned, if Raizen really did not take action, then even if Shea died, the Warlock Fortress would not be defeated. Perhaps it would become the second Essidor to bury the Bloody Empire’s countless elites.
Shea had already arrived in front of Raizen. Chen Rui stepped forward and blocked in front of her.
“Get out of the way.” Shea said blankly, “Thank you for everything you have done for me and the empire. I’m sorry. I’m a ruler and a ruler is ruthless. I have my own helplessness. The one who really likes you is my sister, Alice. Take care of her.”
Chen Rui’s answer was a berserk roar as he rushed straight to Raizen. There was no [Demonic Flies Transformation] or Illusive Demon Shield, only a desperate strike.
Raizen waved his hand. Before everyone had the time to react, they saw Chen Rui flying away and falling to the ground tens of meters away. He just gritted his teeth and stood up. There was a continuous burst of sound on his body, and his armor was stained with blood. He was still staggering toward Raizen step by step.
Raizen’s figure shook, and a trace of blood overflowed from the corner of his mouth, but he did not hesitate to punch again. This time, Dodo and others blocked in front of Chen Rui, but the result was just 3 more figures being blown into the air.
Chen Rui, who was blown away, tremblingly propped up his body, coughed up blood, and slowly stood up again. The [Punishment] physique worked by chance, and this time it didn’t reflect the damage back to Raizen.
“I swear in the name of Lucifer. If you take another step, I will commit suicide in front of you.” Shea’s purple eyes trembled, but her tone was firmer than ever, “I will do as I say. You want my life to end like this?”
Chen Rui paused and his body trembled violently as the blood began to flow away faster. He finally didn’t dare to take any further steps. He gritted his teeth and said, “Raizen, you despicable villain! You are not worthy of being the top powerhouse! If you really kill her, I will not let you go forever!”
“I don’t need to explain, I just do what I decide. No matter what others say, I don’t care at all.”
Raizen ignored Chen Rui, looked at Shea, and shook his head, “No doubt it is a meaningless emotion, but unfortunately, you can’t get rid of it even when you see it through. You’re a strong woman with courage and wisdom, but you are just a woman after all. Strictly speaking, you are not a qualified ruler.”
“Perhaps.” Shea did not look at Raizen in front of him, but she silently looked at Chen Rui who was covered in blood in the distance, “Raizen, in your life, is there anyone whom you can trust fully? Or is there someone who can make your cowardice become desperately strong?”
Raizen was silent for a moment and shook his head.
“Is there anyone who would rather subvert the whole world just for you?”
“If I want to subvert the whole world, I will use my fist.” Raizen slowly raised his fist which flashed with purple light, and an intangible breath had locked Shea.
“Then I didn’t lose.” Shea still didn’t look at Raizen or his fist. Facing the impending death, there was no fear or regrets in her pupils; there was only that figure.
The always ice-like face suddenly melted, revealing a smile. This smile seemed to have put down all the masks and burdens, showing unprecedented brightness and gentleness. She gently opened her lips and muttered, “My prince consort, I command you in the name of Shea. Lucifer to live…”
It was a familiar command, but unlike the last time, she said it with a smile in front of death.
