The amount of information revealed by Teris’ words was too great. For a while, everyone was dumbfounded.
The Bloody Empire’s Young Prince Teris, manipulated the internal strife of the Bloody Empire, killed Great Prince Aleus, and planned today’s astonishing plan to ambush the 3 rulers. What was even more unbelievable was that the Demon Realm’s top genius was actually even the mastermind behind the ‘Bloodfall’ organization that attempted to subvert the 3 empires!
The supreme ruler of the 3 empires ultimately fell into the hands of the mysterious master of the Bloodfall.
“Don’t waste your effort.” Teris sneered and looked at Catherine and Raizen who were resisting the black lightning with all their strength. “This is the Bloodfall enchantment launched by the law artifact, the Bloodfall Orb. With your current strength, you can’t break free. Your strength and vitality will be gradually reduced in this law enchantment until you are annihilated.”
“Law artifact?” Catherine, who was preparing to counterattack, was surprised, “How can you use the law artifact? It’s impossible with the secret technique alone!”
“The name of this organization, Bloodfall, is more than just a name… Over the past few hundred years, although the faith power it has provided cannot be compared with those so-called religions, it is enough to awaken this artifact. I used about 2 million lives as sacrifices for the secret techniques from 3 sources of darkness. With the help of a person, I can finally activate this artifact once with all my strength.
There was only 1 chance, and I grasped it. “
The source of darkness! Chen Rui was trying his best to resist the Bloodfall Orb. Hearing this familiar term, he suddenly thought of something, and his whole body shuddered.
The Blue Lava Estate! Town Lupin!
Chen Rui, Athena, and Paglio led an army to Town Lupin in the Blue Lava Estate back then to investigate. When Chen Rui arrived in Town Lupin, this large town with a population of nearly 300,000 suffered a terrifying extinction, and all the creatures in the town died. The reason was that the area where Town Lupin was located had the most rich source of darkness underground. In order to recover the damage suffered in the Elemental War, Dark Elemental King Hegel killed all the lives that received the breath of the source of darkness and sacrificed it with a secret method.
At that time, the Water Elemental King also said that Hegel’s recovery did not need to sacrifice so many lives. The reason why the whole town was wiped out was because another person needed this dark elemental strength to break through the bottleneck…
Then this person…
“Teris! It turns out that you are the real culprit of Town Lupin’s extinction!”
Chen Rui gritted his teeth and shouted as he felt an incomparable anger burning in his chest.
He always thought that Hegel was the biggest culprit, and he hated this kind of behavior, so even though he experienced life and death together with Hegel in the Dead Sea, the 2 were never able to become friends. It now seems that the real mastermind is Teris!
“Yes, it’s me.” Teris smiled slightly, “To be precise, apart from helping me to control the Bloodfall Orb once, the sacrifices of lives also have an important function, which is to activate the soul power to transform my physique so that I can break through the training bottleneck, make up for the only flaw in this body, and successfully reach the level of Demon Overlord or even higher…”
Raizen and Catherine both frowned while Shea, who had been silent for a long time, showed a shocked expression, “For this reason, you killed so many innocent lives?”
2 million lives! In Chen Rui’s concept, the city where he lived in his previous life had a population of only 600,000, which was equivalent to massacring a few cities!
Calculated by this number, many more innocent people were slaughtered than Town Lupin in the remaining 2 places with the source of darkness! So many innocent people lost their lives just for his breakthrough of the bottleneck and a chance to use the artifact!
“This question is too naive. Don’t forget, you are a ruler. Meaningless feelings and compassion will only become restraining shackles!” Teris’ tone to Shea was more like a reprimand. His gaze turned into contempt as he looked at Raizen and Catherine, “As for both of you, don’t be hypocritical. Aren’t your hands covered with blood too? The lives that were directly or indirectly killed in the battles and wars launched by an empire for various reasons are way more than this number.”
Teris seemed to be downplaying it as if he had just trampled to death a few trivial ants. “In fact, killing 1-2 people and killing 10,000 or 20,000 people is only a change in numbers. The same is true for 100,000 and millions. Trivial matters should be put aside to accomplish great matters. No pain no gain. For my great cause, appropriate sacrifices are inevitable… At this time, all the members of the Bloodfall in the 3 empires should be dispatched, and the 3 empires have fallen into chaos. Although you have cleared a lot of the Bloodfall forces, most of them are known strengths. How can the spies I planted with 300 years of meticulous planning be removed in a short time? Once you die, with my identity as the prince of the Bloody Empire and the strength at hand, I will soon be able to lead the Bloody Empire to wipe out the 3 empires and unify the Demon Realm!”
“Wait!” Catherine suddenly reacted, “Teris is only 200 years old now. You said that you have run the Bloodfall for 300 years! You’re not Teris! Who are you?”
Teris smiled with his habitual elegance, “I’m the true Teris. Mammon. Raizen is my biological father. There is no doubt that he grew up watching me. It’s just that… the world is unpredictable. Some changes are beyond your expectations and imagination. Catherine, I know you have been trying to divert my attention, but unfortunately, these tricks are futile… No matter who I am, I’m a winner and you all are the losers. Your corpses will only be my stepping stone.”
A mask suddenly appeared on Chen Rui’s face. He quickly devoured the nearby spirit power and soul strength like a whale absorbing water. However, the enchantment power of the Bloodfall Orb did not change in the slightest. Obviously, it was not affected by the mask’s strange power.
“You are no doubt the Beelzebub remnants of Glorfin.” Teris smiled with a special kind of disdain, “Unfortunately, having only 1 of the 7 artifacts can only be regarded as a quasi-artifact, and it cannot compete with the strength of the law artifact. However, under the might of the Bloodfall Orb, even Catherine and Raizen can’t activate the 7 artifacts. You can actually activate the God-Eating Mask which surprised me a bit. It’s a pity that with your strength, what can you do even if you get rid of the enchantment?”
As soon as he finished speaking, there were countless stars around him. Teris’ laughter stopped abruptly. He sensed that in the Bloodfall enchantment, his breath had also seemed to be weakened. A surprise flashed in his eyes.
At the same time, the black lightning on Catherine and Raizen was forcibly suppressed as their momentum suddenly flourished. It turned out that Chen Rui didn’t want to break free from the enchantment. Instead, he used [Galaxy Territory] to help Raizen and Catherine!
Raizen and Catherine had been accumulating power to make the biggest counterattack, Now with the buff of the [Galaxy Territory] power, they burst out their power.
There was a black flame in Catherine’s hand. This flame seemed inconspicuous, but it was an extremely refined power of Nirvana. At the same time, Raizen’s fist with a purple glow came to Teris swiftly – a concise and deadly punch!
Although Catherine and Raizen weren’t in their peak stage, the attacks consisted the huge kingdom power of the 2 powerhouses, which was definitely not something a Demon Overlord could resist. As long as one was hit, even Chen Rui with a special physique would definitely die if he could not use the [Star Diversion] or the God-Eating Mask.
At the critical moment, Teris watched as the black flame and purple light approached as if it was too late to react.
Seeing that they were about to succeed, the facial expressions of Catherine and Raizen suddenly changed at the same time.
Chen Rui only felt a blur, and Teris had disappeared unbelievably on the spot. The nearby scene turned into a huge brilliant river.
The river was composed of countless starlight. Unlike the brilliance of the [Pole Star Transformation], this galaxy emitted a dreamlike and beautiful crystal light.
The galaxy oscillated with a strange rhythm which contained a mysterious rhyme. The black flame and purple light which had the absolute upper hand in strength seemed to gradually slow down like in a quagmire.
Immediately afterward, the galaxy had a strange distortion. The black flame and purple light that were supposed to destroy the galaxy unexpectedly twisted and intertwined in an unbelievable way. The galaxy in the sky was still crystal clear like a god overlooking everything below.
“Damn!” Chen Rui regained his senses abruptly. Raizen’s fist rushed straight to Catherine while Catherine’s black flame attacked Raizen.
Due to the law power of the Bloodfall Orb, Catherine was unable to control the [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet] nor did she have the extra energy to activate the [Fire Phoenix’s Yearning], so she could only forcefully resist it in haste.
Raizen’s power and strength were originally superior to her. Although this [Thunder Emperor Seal] was not as deadly as the last time, it also caused her to suffer serious injury. In the muffled sound, her veil already had a touch of blood. The pressure of the black lightning around her seemed to multiply. Even with the buff of the [Galaxy Territory], she couldn’t move anymore.
Raizen wasn’t anywhere better, the injury caused by this [Flame of Nirvana] was even worse than Catherine’s.
In addition to the power of the [Flame of Nirvana], a certain curse that had been suppressed seemed to be agitated because of it. The silver light in his eyes flickered frequently as his body trembled violently. His facial expression was abnormally pale, and he could only suppress the curse while desperately resisting the Bloodfall Orb’s terrifying pressure. With this kind of double injury, he was no longer able to attack.
Raizen and Catherine were simultaneously shocked. There was more of a kind of disbelief in their gaze. It seemed that they had seen something that was impossible to appear. In the next second, their 2 voices had already exclaimed in unison, “[Dream Galaxy Territory]!”
The dreamlike glitter of the galaxy gradually disappeared and returned to the figure of Teris. Teris slowly wiped off the blood from the corner of his mouth as his gaze became deeper and deeper. There was a sense of arrogance in the profound voice that was completely different from the original one, “Raizen, Catherine, we have been fighting for so many years, and in the end, I won.”
