The splendid galaxy and the violent red light collided head-on without reservation, and the huge impact made the entire space tremble. In the starlight and the red flames, the 2 figures intertwined and separated swiftly. If it was a Demon Overlord, he wouldn’t be able to see the high-speed movements. He would feel that the hands and feet had become phantasms.
Both of them had the eagerness to end the battle as soon as possible. Chen Rui, who had gone all-in by activating the [Scorching Dragon Possession], was still suppressed because Teris, who had the soul of Lord of Midnight Sun, was too powerful.
[Dream Galaxy Territory] not only had buffs and debuff abilities similar to [Galaxy Territory], but it could also change any attack form as desired. The most terrifying thing was the ability to predict the enemy’s action first and control the battle situation. If Raizen’s strength was now at the S++ level, he was definitely not Teris’ opponent.
What surprised Teris was that his body sometimes involuntarily showed strange injuries. It seemed that the damage caused to ‘Aguile’ was partially reflected back. As the battle went on, his control ability became weaker. ‘Aguile’ could make accurate and timely responses and counterattacks most of the time. Not only did Teris exhaust a lot of strength, but his injuries were also aggravated.
If the battle was a game of chess, then ‘Aguile’ now had the skill to play against him. This is an incredible change. Does this Beelzebub Royal Family member have a fighting talent that surpasses me, the top powerhouse?
In Chen Rui’s eyes, Teris’ figure had become a translucent human body, and all movements were trajectories of strange colors. The phantasms represented possible trajectories, and the depth of the color represented the intensity of the attack. It was like studying the action video of a game, one could predict the most likely habitual action and make an effective response. These analyses were all completed in an instant as with Chen Rui’s reaction – This was the strength of [Deep Analysis].
It was the first time that Chen Rui applied [Deep Analysis], a non-combat skill, to actual combat, and it actually had a miraculous effect.
This analysis was not 100% accurate, but combined with Chen Rui’s own combat instinct and spirit sensing, he could make a judgment with the smallest error which was equivalent to entering a mysterious state of ‘marvellous prediction’. Of course, analyzing the state of battle also had significant side effects. Over time, the load on spirit power was quite large, especially when he was severely exhausted now, but he could no longer care so much.
Seeing the opponent slowly turned the battle situation unbelievably, Teris made a resolute decision. He gave up melee combat, appeared in the air, stepped on the galaxy, and spread out the galaxy with his hands, turning it into countless light balls with powerful strength. The light balls filled the entire space. All the escape routes of Chen Rui were sealed.
“[Star Gathering Explosion]!” Teris waved his hand, and the light balls flew toward Chen Rui from all directions at varying speeds just like a well-trained tactic that was impossible to predict.
This was a nearly incomprehensible skill that consumed a lot of territory power. Teris was confident to use this blow to solve the opponent.
Chen Rui quickly shifted and dodged in the air. He waved the Northsea Sword to defend with water swordsmanship, but the situation was getting worse and worse – The terrifying fact of these light balls not only lay in the explosive strength contained in a single one, but it was more in the endless balls. As soon as one moved slowly, more and more attacks would arrive.
Chen Rui tried his best to dodge and defend, but no matter how he teleported or flew, there were always countless light balls around. The pressure on the Northsea Sword was getting stronger and stronger as if the sword was being pressed by a mountain. At the moment the water swordsmanship could no longer be sustained, a light ball that was not diverted exploded. Then, the light balls that flew all over the sky rushed over in a focus to create a terrifying explosion.
Boom boom boom…
The space had undergone huge distortions and shocks. Catherine and Raizen felt their vision blurred, and the separated space became nothingness as if the power of ‘Aguile”s artifact gradually faded. With a clanging sound, a sword flew out to the ground – Northsea Sword.
Teris stepped on the galaxy, hovering in the air, and bleeding from the corner of his mouth. He looked haggard, but he still had the pride of a winner on his face while looking down at Raizen and Catherine as if laughing at the shattering of their last hope.
Teris’ arrogance instantly solidified on his face as if his figure was refracted by a crystal. It turned out that the separated space became solid again. At the same time, the light cocoon that imprisoned Shura suddenly burst apart, and a figure broke out of the cocoon and suddenly split into 3 in the air. They encircled Teria in a triangular formation.
Is it illusion again? Teris frowned as he looked at the 3 exactly same Shura. For some reason, he felt that all 3 seemed to be real, and the hint of danger in his mind was getting more and more intense. I must act first!
Teris was about to activate the galaxy power when he felt the chill approaching suddenly. He couldn’t help but shiver. The next second, he was surprised to find that the galaxy that was composed of pure territory power was actually frozen by the special chill. This chill was not ordinary water element magic power, but a kind of destructive territory power that could penetrate into the soul. It comes from the bloody ‘Aguile’ below!
With the full power of [Dream Galaxy Territory] and [Star Gathering Explosion], he can actually stand up and launch such a strange skill!
This was the [Winter Territory] which was also Chen Rui’s final strength. He just used [Star Diversion], [Demonic Flies Transformation] and Demon Shield in succession, only then he barely resisted the [Star Gathering Explosion]. His body was seriously injured.
Compared with the increasingly stronger recoil, these injuries were actually nothing. The most fatal thing was that the state of [Scorching Dragon Possession] was declining sharply and was about to disappear. Chen Rui only had this last bit of strength.
[Scorching Dragon Possession] increased not only physical traits, but also the ability to withstand damage. It was like a dose of boost. Once it expired, then it was very likely that the previous recoil and load would erupt in a chain. Even if he did not collapse and annihilate, he would completely lose his combat power, so Teris must be dealt with before that.
Teris controlled the galaxy with all his strength. On the frozen glacial river, crystal white flames flew up. Just as they were about to melt the freezing power, a warning omen suddenly surged. There was a strong brilliance on the bodies of the 3 Shura. This kind of brilliance was also a kind of starlight, but it was a million times brighter than [Dream Galaxy Territory]!
The 3 voices sounded at the same time. Teris had only 1 feeling left, the galaxy had exploded.
Not only the galaxy, but also the burst of real stars; a kind of destruction with indescribable brilliance and splendor.
It engulfed him in an instant.
Raizen and Catherine outside the separated space only saw the dazzling light that even they couldn’t look directly at.
Amidst the violent shake, the intersecting space shook violently for a while and finally turned into nothingness. The power of the Tower of Glory disappeared.
The dazzling light dissipated while the galaxy, blood light, and explosion disappeared, leaving only 2 standing figures, Shura and Teris.
Shura’s body was flickering, and his breath was greatly weakened. Teris’ face was full of blood, and the previously looming phantasm armor appeared on his body. Then, the phantasm armor quickly turned into powder and disappeared.
The strength of these 2 people had obviously dropped to a very low level, especially Shura, whose body was becoming more and more blurred which was on the verge of disappearing.
Chen Rui fell to the ground. His body convulsed and made crackling sounds from time to time, but he couldn’t move as he had obviously lost the combat power.
“Unexpectedly you can actually push me to this point! If it weren’t for the protection of the armor soul given by the Wrath King, I would have been annihilated under the power of the move just now.” Teris panted violently. This was directed to Chen Rui, who was lying next to the ground, “Unfortunately, it’s not enough after all… I admit that you are a worthy opponent. You’re very strong, far above Glorfin back then, but I’m stronger and more persistent than you. So, I am the winner! Now your secret technique of exhausting your life has begun to fully recoil. As long as I kill you, the subordinate you summoned will disappear with your death!”
Teris was right. Chen Rui’s body was overloaded and exhausted, and the recoil finally broke out uncontrollably. Every inch of his muscles was twisting like his soul was torn bit by bit. There was a danger of total collapse at any time. The word ‘pain’ could no longer describe his feelings.
Teris’ right hand showed the glittering starlight, and he condensed it into a sword. Chen Rui didn’t even have the strength to lift a finger, let alone dodge or defend.
He had gone all-in.
Shura’s flickering figure appeared behind him. Teris had been prepared for a long time. Afterimages appeared as he moved to the side of Shura and stabbed with the starlight sword. To Teris’ surprise, Shura didn’t avoid it, letting the sword pierce his body.
The sword suddenly disappeared strangely. Almost at the same time, the same sword appeared in Shura’s right hand. Teris was taken aback. He was a step slower in dodging, so he was pierced by this sword. When the starlight sword exploded, his blood splashed everywhere.
Shura’s skill- Retaliating with one’s own skill!
Teris made a muffled sound, clenched his teeth, and immediately clasped Shura’s shoulders with his hands. Strands of starlight quickly wrapped around Shura like a chain. Teris exerted force on his fingers, “Boom!” Shura finally couldn’t hold on anymore. His entire body was annihilated in the intense light.
The light fell on Chen Rui’s nearly-collapsed pupils. His lips squirmed slightly. If someone came close, perhaps he could vaguely hear a person’s name.
Teris was seriously injured. He swayed, and was about to fall, but he finally stabilized his figure. After Shura disappeared, Teris clearly felt that the weakening of the faith power in the Bloodfall Orb’s enchantment finally stopped. Although the Bloodfall Orb’s enchantment was affected to a certain extent, it could still operate normally.
“In any case, I am the ultimate winner! I won’t lose…” Before finishing his sentence, Teris suddenly showed an expression of disbelief. He lowered his head and looked at the blade that pierced through his heart. The blade was crystal clear, exuding a kind of strange strength that firmly attached to the wound. Not only the power of the body was rapidly devoured, but even the soul began to shatter.
“This is… [Soul Searing]!” Teris roared wildly. His neck was tightly bound by an arm. His center of gravity lost as he fell backward, “The Sword of Fallen Angel!”
The man with the sword behind him could not hold on anymore after exhausting the last strength, so he was crushed to the ground by Teris, but he still tightly bound his neck.
“Aguile, you actually…” Teris barely squeezed out a few words. His face flushed, and he couldn’t break free of the restraint. There were 2 souls in his body, especially Midnight Sun who was in charge of fighting and was extremely powerful. However, the [Soul Searing] feature of the Sword of Fallen Angel, which directly killed and split the enemy’s soul power, was precisely his nemesis.
Ironically, the Sword of Fallen Angel was an artifact owned by the Lord of Midnight Sun! He, the soul who originally possessed the artifact, had no way to stop the artifact’s killing intent.
Could it be… When I abandoned the identity of the Lucifer Royal Family and the past, I’m also abandoned by the artifact?
Teris suddenly thought of a more shocking thing. Why can ‘Aguile’ of the Beelzebub Royal Family use the Sword of Fallen Angel of the Lucifer Royal Family? The [Sword Control] of the Sword of Fallen Angel can be controlled remotely, but Shea is in a coma at this time. Is it a special secret technique of blood bestowing? So he can use it temporarily? I have had the Sword of Fallen Angel for hundreds of years, but I didn’t know that it has this characteristic?
As Teris’ soul power quickly weakened, the Bloodfall Orb’s enchantment finally began to slowly disintegrate. No matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t stop the rapid loss of soul power. He felt that all his strength was sucked emptied by the Sword of Fallen Angel.
“You lost…” Chen Rui’s weak voice came from behind. Even though his hand holding Teris had no strength, and his body continued to explode, he refused to let go.
“Why do you still have this kind of strength…” Teris’ soul was already extremely weak, and his tone still revealed a strong unwillingness. Compared with the Sword of Fallen Angel, this incident made him even more puzzled – ‘Aguile’ burns his vitality to activate the artifact and the secret technique in the battle. Later, his combat power was completely lost because of the recoil. It is impossible for him to stand up anymore. Now that he lost the support from the artifact, he actually withstand the Bloodfall Orb’s enchantment’s pressure to unleash this final fatal blow!
“You’re stronger than me, perhaps tougher and more persistent…” Chen Rui gasped, “You can sacrifice millions of lives for your personal strength, but you do not have something that you are willing to sacrifice yourself in order to protect…”
“While I…” Chen Rui no longer had the strength to turn his head, so he just moved his gaze to the approximate positions of Catherine and Shea, “I do.”
“Absurd reason…” Teris’ vision had begun to dim, and he could vaguely see the figure sitting on the ground gradually standing up, “Raizen…”
“Midnight Sun…” Raizen came to Teris step by step, and did not make a move because he could see that Teris’ current state no longer needed other people to do anything.
“You… didn’t defeat me…”
“I haven’t. I’ve been chasing you all my life.” Raizen’s deep eyes revealed a strange emotion, “Even if I have reached the kingdom level, I still lose in your hands – I can’t be compared to you. “
Raizen paused and added, “The only thing I can beat you is that my son is better than your son…”
Teris’ disintegrated gaze suddenly brightened as if he wanted to say something. His expression gradually solidified as a teardrop slowly fell from the corner of his eye.
The strength of the entire Bloodfall Orb’s enchantment dissipated, and a strange red bead rose from Teris’ body before quickly disappearing in the sky.
Chen Rui felt light, and Teris’ body had fallen into Raizen’s hands. The bloody light flickered, and Raizen had also disappeared.
A face with a veil appeared in his vision. The deep eyes glittered with crystal light and looked blurred.
Chen Rui felt completely relaxed. Everything became extremely quiet, and he couldn’t even hear the explosive sounds in his body. After that, his consciousness finally fell into darkness.
