When Chen Rui heard Teris talked about ‘Twilight of the Gods’, he suddenly thought of his glorious deeds of fooling the dark elf master by adapting the ‘Master Wukong’ into the ‘Twilight of the Gods’ when he first crossover to the Demon Realm.
I didn’t expect that the Demon Realm really has a legend like ‘Twilight of the Gods’, I don’t know what the real story is… Fortunately, according to Catherine, it is ‘a legend that has been buried in the legend’. Otherwise, I would be exposed and there might not be a Chen Rui today?
At this moment, Raizen launched a certain power of the Bloody Ring to ambush Teris.
Teris had been prepared long ago. His body swayed like a phantom, and he appeared in the distance in an instant. At the same time, the fingers of his right hand were dancing quickly. Little fluorescents were flickering at his fingertips.
Raizen’s pupils suddenly turned silver-gray, and both his speed and momentum dropped sharply. The blow still surpassed the distance, penetrating Teris’ body. Teris slightly flickered, and the armor phantasm on his body instantly cracked and his face turned pale. However, he was fine.
The offense and defense occurred in just a flash of lightning. In the blink of an eye, the overlapping phantoms of Teris that moved to the distance appeared in front of everyone again. Raizen had fallen to the ground. The blood overflowing in his mouth and nose had a strange silver color in it. His whole body was trembling, seeming to have completely lost the combat power.
“Raizen, I have been giving you opportunities. You really can’t hold it anymore.” Teris showed a strong confidence like everything was under his control, “This blow used the last power accumulated in the Bloody Ring. Unfortunately, without the suppression of the Bloody Ring, I can easily induce your light and dark blood mark. Your risky attempt will eventually render useless. Your biggest mistake is to ignore the dark element half of the seal. Although the Mammon Royal Family has the strength of [Dark Mastery] which helped in the first place, the person who helped me to cast the seal in the Dark Furnace has the most pristine dark element origin power of the Demon Realm, so the real killer of the seal is not the light element that you think, but the power of the dark element! Now, with the suppression of the law power and the outbreak of curse, you have no strength to attack again… Teris turned his gaze to Catherine, “Catherine, you don’t have to waste your time. The strength of the law artifact is not something you can contend with. Even if you have the 7 artifacts, I don’t need to do anything; I just need to watch here. Your strength and flesh will be thoroughly devoured by the Bloodfall Orb. Some of them will be refined into blood crystals by the Bloodfall Orb. When I absorb that part of the blood crystals, the level of my soul will be able to break through to the kingdom level in one fell swoop. This will be my first step on the way to God! “
“Shea!” Chen Rui exclaimed. It turned out that Shea couldn’t hold on anymore as she slowly fell back. Chen Rui leaned forward and sat down. Under great pressure, he barely held her in his arms. He couldn’t help but feel anxious as he sensed the rapid fading of Shea’s vitality.
Teris just glanced at Shea faintly with an indifferent gaze; he was not moved at all.
Catherine also sensed that the pressure was getting greater and greater, and the speed of her body’s power exhaustion was gradually increasing. She knew that Teris’ words were not a lie. Unless Teris went crazy, gave up resistance and took the initiative to approach her to give her a chance to launch a near-death blow, otherwise it was already impossible to make a comeback.
Liliz had been in a coma for a long time after losing Catherine’s strength protection. Despite the protection of magic items, she still couldn’t resist the power of Bloodfall enchantment. The blood color on her skin faded quickly, and her body had a faint tendency to wither as if her life was hanging by a thread.
Compared to others, Chen Rui, who owned the Super System, had less pressure, but the Bloodfall Orb was a law artifact after all. The might of a real artifact was by no means comparable to a pseudo-artifact. Even if Chen Rui was in the state of activated [Pole Star Transformation] like in the Jade Forest Sea back then, he was still controlled by the Shackles of True Flame activated by Isyorul, let alone now.
Chen Rui was not a saint. From crossing over to the present, although he had experienced a lot, he still had that otaku deep in him. At this moment, he didn’t think about the chaos of the Demon Realm or what the future might become. All he thought was to protect what he had always wanted to protect.
Not only Shea and Catherine in front of him.
There were also Zola and other women as well as cherished friends.
For this reason, he spared no effort.
Teris suddenly felt that the surrounding force field was different. Some translucent symbols appeared in the air. The entire space seemed to be separated by layers of strange strength. This strength was very unstable and appeared occasionally.
In the turbulent space, the man put down the unconscious Shea in his arms and slowly stood up. The pressure of the Bloodfall enchantment seemed to have lost its effect at this moment. The space trembled slightly, and a cluster of blood burst out of his body, but he didn’t feel it. He was just looking directly at Teris with his blade-like eyes.
There was a tingling sensation in Teris’ eyes suddenly as he squinted slightly. At this moment, the figure of the man suddenly disappeared.
Teris immediately had a hint of crisis, and his overlapping shadows appeared in the distance instantly, but the sense of crisis was still strong. He made a somersault in the air, avoiding a terrifying sharp qi. When he landed on the ground, there was already a faint red mark on his cheek.
Teris’ pupils contracted and looked at the man in front of him warily, “Aguile! The law power that even Raizen and Catherine can’t resist, you actually…”
There was another distortion and turmoil in the space. Chen Rui’s corners of his eyes suddenly split, then 2 bursts of blood spurted out, and his cheeks were dyed red, but he was still indifferent. The strength breath of his body became more intense. He was completely unaffected by the Bloodfall Orb’s enchantment.
“Artifact! It must be an artifact! And the quality is even higher than the Bloodfall Orb!” Teris said emotionally, “I didn’t expect that you actually possessed this kind of artifact, but… with your strength, you can’t control it at all. You can only use something like the secret technique of burning vitality to forcefully control it to offset the strength of the Bloodfall Orb’s enchantment.”
At this point, Teris’ eyes had become cold. “You cannot last in this state. The only thing that surprised me is that your first reaction was to defeat me instead of running away. Now it’s too late for you to run away! Unfortunately, you are only the peak stage of the Demon Overlord. I have basically surpassed the level of Demon Overlord and I am only 1 step away from the kingdom. At the same level, even Raizen is not my opponent. With your strength, you want to defeat me? I will take your life and artifact!”
Chen Rui didn’t speak because every movement and every word spoken would put a huge load on his body and spirit. What he activated was the space artifact, the ‘Tower of Glory’ which was the trophy obtained by defeating the Holy Dragon Rodriguez. This was a very high-grade artifact which Rodriguez used to escape the pursuit of Pseudo-God Raphael.
After Chen Rui got this artifact, he had been using the Super System’s [Deep Analysis] to ‘crack’ it, but the Tower of Glory’s level was too high. [Deep Analysis] not only cost aura, but also consumed faith power. Up to now, only the most ‘outer’ layer had been analyzed, and there was still a considerable distance between the core, which was equal to the uncracked ‘version’.
The current Tower of Glory could only separate Chen Rui and Teris into a single space, offsetting the effect of the Bloodfall Orb’s enchantment on him. It couldn’t work on Catherine and others. The price was to burn Star Power and vitality. Otherwise, it would recoil. The most serious thing was that once the limit was exceeded, his entire body and soul would collapse.
The control of Teris’ body is dominated by Midnight Sun now. Midnight Sun is once known as the Demon Realm’s top powerhouse. Although this ‘top’ is understood by ordinary people as being indeed invincible under the super powerhouse. According to Raizen, Midnight Sun also had the combat power for cross-level challenges. So, how strong is Midnight Sun?
Chen Rui had no time and energy to think about extra things including the recoil that he was about to suffer. The only thing he wanted to do now was to put down Teris before he collapsed.
This was the only way he could save Shea and Catherine. If he fell in this battle, everything would be doomed. Not only the 2 empresses, but the other women and friends would have no way to survive.
The [Galaxy Territory] and [Autumn Territory] were activated at the same time. Chen Rui had [Aura Blade] on his left hand and Northsea Sword on his right, attacking Teris like a storm.
Teris had already experienced the power of [Aura Blade], and dared not underestimate it. His body continuously flickered incredibly, making Chen Rui’s attacks futile. After dodging for a while, Teris finally launched a counterattack. The middle finger knuckle of his fist suddenly protruded which was somewhat similar to Phoenix Eye Fist (Phoenix Eye Fist uses the index finger). He speedily and accurately hit Chen Rui’s left wrist joint.
[Aura Blade] was extremely sharp and powerful. If he hit Chen Rui’s palm, it would not play any role. Instead, he would be injured by sharp qi. However, this tap hit the key point. Chen Rui felt a pain in his wrist as his entire palm seemed to have been severed from nerve connections, and he could no longer control the [Aura Blade].
When his action paused, Teris had already gotten closer and launched a series of attacks at Chen Rui.
Although none of the attacks were fatal, Chen Rui felt that every attack hit the most ‘critical’ part. Before he made the next move, he was already interrupted. He could not exert his power at all. Some of the moves were even involuntarily changed after being affected by the opponent. Every move was completely controlled by Teris just like a marionette.
This not only required an accurate grasp of strength and timing, but it also required the prediction of the enemy’s moves. Teris only witnessed the brief encounter between Chen Rui and Raizen on the battlefield, coupled with the dodge observation just now, he had grasped the situation precisely; this ability was quite terrifying.
Strictly speaking, the difference between S+ and S++ was not as huge as imagined. They all belonged to the peak stage of the Demon Overlord level, but the latter was closer to the bottleneck than the former. In Chen Rui’s past record, he had almost no opponents at the same level. This was the first time that he had been completely suppressed by an opponent like this.
If Raizen’s attacks were simplified, refined and effective; then ‘Midnight Sun’ had absolute control of the entire battle.
He was no doubt the Demon Realm’s top powerhouse in the past.
Chen Rui finally used the continuous teleport to pull the distance. Blood flowed out even more from his mouth. The damage caused by the recoil was even above the damage caused by the opponent’s attack.
Teris sneered. As he was about to pursue, he frowned suddenly. He turned into a series of afterimages and dodged. It turned out that there was already another figure. The appearance of this figure was the same as that of ‘Aguile’, except that there was a faint blood color in his eyes.
At this critical moment, Chen Rui finally summoned Shura who had always been in the human world to collect faith!
TL: Will Chen Rui get enough faith power to fully control the artifact?
