Chen Rui’s eyes became red as the Star Power in his body frantically spurred to hit the Shackles of True Flame. However, the law power still stubbornly imprisoned the strength of the [Pole Star Transformation]. Even though the 2-year unlocking time had been shortened due to many external factors, it was not now after all.
At this moment, Teris at the back seemed to have discovered something, and his smile suddenly solidified.
Raizen’s figure disappeared suddenly, and a huge thing appeared in his original place. The ground shook, and a staggering pit was formed.
This was a big dark golden metal foot. Strange inscribed patterns on this foot contained infinite mystery.
Before everyone could see the master of this foot, the giant foot had disappeared. Only Raizen’s figure was constantly flashing, and the dense high-speed strikes could be heard.
“Boom!” The lightning-like figure was knocked backward and landed on the ground due to the purple glow of the fist.
This was a dark golden puppet whose body was full of fist dents. A green light flashed through its eyes. These fist dents actually begin to recover quickly at a speed visible to the naked eye. In the blink of an eye, it had recovered as before as if it was not damaged at all.
“[Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet]!” Raizen’s pupils contracted as he suddenly raised his head and looked toward the sky.
In the sky, a phoenix chirp sounded, and it burned instantly. The black flames full of vitality formed a huge phoenix figure.
The powerful breath penetrated every corner of the battlefield; even Raizen’s blood-red kingdom power couldn’t completely suppress it.
The phoenix pattern in the sky quickly decomposed and ejected countless flames which whistled toward the Warlock Fortress. The flames that wrapped the metallic puppets fell accurately in front of the Warlock Fortress wall and neatly lined up in a row, facing the Bloody Empire Army.
These metals were silver or gold colors and of different sizes. The flames quickly condensed into silhouettes of men and women, standing beside the metallic puppet. The men’s looks were handsome and extraordinary while the women wore either veils or masks. There were about 20 men and women who exuded strong breath, giving the Bloody Empire Army an intense pressure.
The huge phoenix in the sky disappeared, and there was a woman beside the dark golden puppet opposite Raizen.
She was dressed in a black robe and a light gray cloak with a veil on her face, revealing an ethereal and noble temperament. Even if one couldn’t see her face clearly, one could still feel that peerless elegance.
[War Puppet], cloak, veil, graceful woman.
It was fine to look at these words separately, but when combined, there was only 1 person in the Demon Realm.
The only 1.
“Catherine!” Raizen felt the power emanating from the woman, and his eyes flashed with surprise, “You actually…”
This ‘actually’ contained several meanings – You are actually not dead! You actually have a qualitative breakthrough in strength! You actually appeared at this time!
Catherine’s appearance also surprised Chen Rui, but he was relieved that he had come to Shea’s side. When he held Shea’s hand, she trembled slightly, she wanted to say something, but she didn’t say it. She just held his hand tighter. Ms. Fairy Dragon on the side stepped forward without showing any weakness and took Chen Rui’s other hand.
“The timing of my appearance seems to be a little earlier…” The indifferent and elegant voice sounded and spread across the battlefield, giving people a feeling of peace of mind, “Perhaps because I’m not only a ruler, but also a woman… What do you think, Raizen?”
This sentence was obviously in response to what Raizen said to Shea earlier. It was no different from hitting Raizen’s face in public. However, Chen Rui felt that her eyes behind the veil seemed to be looking at him and the 2 tightly held hands.
“Are you trying to remind me that you are not only a ruler, but also a vengeful woman?” Raizen had recovered his calm and said coldly, “It really surprised me that you are still alive, but you made a stupid decision! Do you think that with your current strength, plus the secret treasure [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet] that has not yet been fully mastered, you can avenge yourself? It’s good that you are here. As long as I kill you, the Dark Shadow Empire will naturally be defeated without war!”
Teris gestured at Gustav from behind. Gustav nodded. The sound of weapons thumping the ground and hitting the shields began to appear in the Bloody Empire Army. The sound became more and more orderly and vast, forming a powerful momentum.
The original low morale of the Bloody Empire began to rise steadily, and Raizen’s momentum also skyrocketed. The entire sky seemed to be covered by a cloud of blood.
The atmosphere was tense as if the fight would be triggered at any moment.
Catherine remained calm while staring at Raizen and saying, “You’re too impatient.”
This irrelevant sentence made Raizen’s gaze flicker, “What do you mean?”
“The whole war is advancing too fast… Why are you so eager to start the war? You even gave up your pride and personally kill Shea yourself?” Catherine’s eyes behind the veil seemed to see through into Raizen’s mind, “I’m thinking about 1 thing, your body…” Raizen’s facial expression changed. The purple aura in his eyes became bright, the color of the sky suddenly turned blood-red as a wave of bloody aura surged toward Catherine. Even the defending soldiers of the city wall felt the monstrous murderous intent.
2 pairs of phantom wings appeared behind Catherine slowly. A pair of black wings and a pair of red wings radiated strong vitality and fiery heat. In an instant, the [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet] turned into a huge figure that was more than 10 meters high, faintly emitting a dark golden light. The bloody air wave was unable to advance at all as though it had encountered an intangible barrier.
Behind the Bloody Empire Army, Teris’ gaze became a little more solemn as he stared closely on the wings behind Catherine.
Raizen’s hand moved, and launched the ultimate move, [Thunder Emperor Seal]. The wings behind Catherine burned as her palm greeted forward like smoke.
In an instant, the space between the two of them was strongly distorted, and their figures became blurred. Only the terrifying collision of red and purple energies could be felt. The aftermath spreading outward made astonishing traces on the ground beneath the kingdom.
When the 2 pairs of wings appeared behind Catherine, Chen Rui, who had just retreated with Shea, suddenly had a strange sense. The strength on his body seemed to echo the red wings. The recovery of his injury and strength suddenly accelerated.
Catherine also felt this bizarre echo. The red energy, which was originally slightly at a disadvantage, suddenly became more intense. It could contend with the purple energy without losing. The 2 mixed energies gradually shrank and disappeared in the end. Both were equally strong.
Raizen’s brows raised as he couldn’t imagine that Catherine had resolved the [Thunder Emperor Seal] by relying on her own power without activating [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet]! This is the strength of just being promoted to the kingdom? Such a short period of time!
“Fifth Nirvana?” Raizen suddenly thought of an incredible thing, and there was a surprised expression on his calm face.
Catherine knew well that the unexpected and strange sensing ability just now was very important in resolving the [Thunder Emperor Seal], but she would not say it. She just nodded faintly.
“You actually completed the fifth Nirvana? You can only be described as an incredible genius!” Raizen showed a moving expression, but his eyes had more and more battle intent, “I have always looked highly of you. I never thought I still underestimated you! You are a real strong opponent.”
The Dark Shadow Empire’s Demon Overlords under the city wall were also inexplicably excited to learn that their empress had successfully completed the fifth Nirvana. The fifth Nirvana of the Asmodeus Royal Family is a well-known moment of life and death, and countless geniuses have fallen here. Catherine the Great has actually succeeded!
“The point is not that.” Catherine shifted away from the subject calmly as she gazed across the blood on the corner of Raizen’s mouth, “The power of Nirvana has a wonderful sense of vitality, and it increases with the level. Your blood breath and your reaction just now tell me that your life power seems… What I want to ask is, even if you launch an all-out attack in this situation, can the Bloody Empire defeat the joint force of the Dark Shadow Empire and the Fallen Angel Empire?”
This sentence showed her stance. The soldiers on the Fallen Angel Empire side cheered up while the Bloody Empire Army was a little restless. At present, Catherine had obviously the strength to compete against Raizen, and high-end military combat power of the Bloody Empire and the Fallen Angel Empire had basically been exhausted. At least in the short term, it would not be able to play a role. Even if Raizen brought some Demon Overlords, they might not be the opponents of Chen Rui and others. Furthermore, the Dark Shadow Empire currently had more than 20 Demon Overlords, let alone the army that hadn’t appeared yet.
Just by comparing the existing strength, the Bloody Empire had lost hope of winning. The Dark Shadow Empire had become the most critical existence that would determine the outcome of this battle.
Raizen sneered, “Don’t you think you appeared a little earlier? You should wait until I kill Shea and appear when the Fallen Angel Empire fights to the death to get more benefits.
“As a ruler, you must consider not only the benefits you get but also the price you pay. If the benefits of a war are exchanged for a situation that is out of control and a protracted war in the future, then it can only be described it as ‘the loss outweighs the gain’. You should understand what I mean, and you should understand what an empire really needs in this case.”
Raizen sneered coldly, “I don’t need you to remind me! Looking too far may not be a success. Plans will never keep up with changes. Do you think that if you unite with the Fallen Angel Empire, you will definitely be able to defeat me?”
“No matter how big a change is, it won’t leave the big framework of the plan…” Catherine said unhurriedly, “Besides, I’m not in a hurry, and I can afford to wait.”
The last sentence intensified the nearby bloody vibe in an instant. Raizen’s eyes were flourishing with murderous intent. He stressed on every word, “Are – you – threatening – me?”
“I just want to tell you that the plan can also change.” Catherine smiled behind her veil, “There is no absolute thing in the world. Whether it is war or you, it doesn’t have to be ‘urgent’.”
Raizen understood Catherine’s meaning. His murderous aura stagnated as he stared at Catherine with bright eyes, “Are you sure?”
“The power of Nirvana is not omnipotent.” Catherine glanced back. “However, something I can’t do may not be impossible for someone.”
Raizen’s gaze fell on the person whom Catherine was looking at. He had personally experienced this person’s special abilities, so Catherine’s words were not slanderous.
Both the man’s hands were held, so he could only shrug his shoulders, “With the current situation, it doesn’t make much sense to continue the fight. No matter what the reason is, I think we… the 3 empires, the 3 kings, can all sit down and talk.”
Raizen was silent for a long time, and the bloody vibe around his body finally gradually receded. Teris’ gaze behind him had become as cold as ice.
TL: Teris knew his father’s life is dying? Does he have any backup plan for this? Also, what will the future of the 3 empires be?
