Chen Rui and Red Pipit walked into the Book Collection Hall which was classified as a restricted area, and the faint feeling in Chen Rui’s heart became clearer as they stepped closer. This was a kind of unprecedented breath containing the mysterious rule. Although he had not entered the state of [Pole Star Transformation], he could still feel the existence of that kind of law power.
‘Law’ was the basis of formation for kingdomized. Compared with this, the Demon Overlord-level territory could only be regarded as a rule similar to ‘law’. Only by comprehending the law power could the territory achieve a real qualitative change and thus evolve into the most original kingdom.
For the entire journey to the Demi-God level and even God with Kingdom of God, kingdomized was only a starting point, but it was also the most important first step. If this step was taken, it would cross the gap that divided the ordinary powerhouse and super powerhouse to step into a whole new ‘world’.
When Chen Rui activated the [Pole Star Transformation], he could activate a powerful strength equivalent to the law and compete with the kingdom powerhouse, Isyorul. However, it was a passive strength developed through the evolution of the Super System instead of his own real perception.
These days, Chen Rui did not relax his training. He would enter the training ground every day to use time law to comprehend. At his current level, simple physical or mental training had no much effect. The most important thing was comprehension.
The 6-star evolution was an evolution equivalent to the law power, and this law power was the law containing the highest truth of the universe. The difference between the levels should be a reflection of the degree of law comprehension. He was currently the lowest Blue Pole Star Level. If he could touch even a trace of the edge of universe law, he could break through the current Pole Star Level.
At that time, [Pole Star Transformation] could exert its true power.
Chen Rui was only ‘sensing’ the law now which was far from ‘realization’. Even the ‘time law’ generated by the alternation of the 4 seasons’ territory was more of a ‘rule’ category which was not considered a real law.
“Is it my illusion? You seem to be familiar with it?” The Book Collection Hall was huge, and the terrain was not complicated, but it was not flat land. Octopus King was still in the front at first, but then he unconsciously followed Chen Rui. Soon, the 2 of them entered the 3rd floor.
“Your illusion.” Chen Rui raised the hand-drawn map in his hand. Items such as magic maps couldn’t play a role in this kind of place, “The magic circle here seemed to have been stopped. After going up this staircase, it should be the entrance to the 4th floor.”
The 4th floor was the biggest secret of the Book Collection Hall. It could only be entered by a master or accompanied by a master. It also required a lot of contribution points and a lot of scarce materials. What’s even more amazing was that what everyone saw seemed to be different. Chen Rui once heard that 2 masters, Turia and Mavinna, said that there were countless rich materials, but neither of them remembered exactly what they saw afterward, yet at that time, some special insights or memories still remained in their minds. Chen Rui didn’t feel this way when he went in last time perhaps because he took off his glasses boldly. However, the consequence of taking off the glasses was to see the boundless ancient runes and the terrifying Demi-God territory. It was very dangerous at that time. If it weren’t for the power of time that he comprehended at the spur of the moment, he had been turned into ashes by that vast and boundless strength.
“This door is the entrance to the 4th floor, right? The remaining breath of the law should be exuded from here.” Octopus King walked upstairs and looked at the front door. The material of this door was quite special. It was neither metal nor stone. It gave people a heavy feeling. There were countless primitive patterns on it. The strange thing was that it didn’t even have a keyhole.
Red Pipit pushed the door, but it didn’t move at all. A puzzled expression flashed past his eyes. Although his movements were casual just now, he had already used 20% strength. Even a city wall protected by magic would be knocked down. Unexpectedly this door’s sturdiness was far higher than expected; there was actually no response.
Octopus King felt that he had embarrassed himself in front of Chen Rui. A glimmer of light flashed in his eyes, and the powerful kingdom power had been condensed in his hand in an instant as he hit the door with a punch.
Chen Rui was recalling the last time Nate opened the door when he suddenly felt the terrifying breath from Octopus King, “Wait a minute!”
It was too late when he said this. In an instant, the entire Book Collection Hall shook. The stairs behind Chen Rui shattered inch by inch. Most of the ground and many rooms on the 3rd floor were cracked. No one knew if the information inside was affected.
In fact, Octopus King had controlled the strength and range of this punch, but the kingdom-level strength was too strong. Moreover, the magic circle of the Book Collection Hall had stopped, and it had lost its protective strength. Therefore, the aftermath of the shock caused a large area of damage.
However, under such a punch, the door still did not open. Only a shallow fist mark appeared which was insignificant compared to the entire thick door.
The Octopus King knew that he had caused a small trouble. What’s more, the door did not open after such a big movement. He turned around and smiled, “It’s a hard door.”
Chen Rui was speechless. He pointed at the door, “It’s not just hard.”
Octopus King looked back and saw that the fist mark gradually faded at a speed visible to the naked eye, and it soon recovered to its original state. He was dumbfounded, “Didn’t Raizen say that the kingdom power can be used to break the closure to enter directly? Even if I hit with all my strength, I’m afraid the entire Book Collection Hall would be shattered by the aftermath of the shock before this door is not broken. What should we do?”
“Let me think about it first, don’t mess around.”
“Forget it. What can you think of, this door doesn’t even have a hole…” While Octopus King muttered to himself, he finally began to notice the pattern on the door, “That’s right, this must be the key to opening the door! Judging from my many years of experience, this pattern seems to be related to some ancient things… Oh, it should be the ancient runes known as the ‘Language of Gods’! Damn, ancient runes are mysterious and profound. Besides those who are stubborn and spend tens of thousands of years studying it; otherwise even the general Demi-God, there are not many…”
While the Octopus King was complaining about it, he saw Chen Rui walking to the door and started to draw out strange symbols in his hand. There were a total of 18 flying toward the door. The pattern on the door flashed light and began to vibrate slightly. However, it seemed not strong enough to open it.
Octopus King was stunned. It was obvious that Chen Rui activated the ancient runes that required ‘tens of thousands of years of study’ plus ‘stubbornness’ to understand.
“You, you, you… Is it my illusion again? Judging from your breath of life, your age is definitely not more than 100 years old. How can you…”
“Don’t roast me anymore, help me!” Chen Rui interrupted the Octopus King, “If I guessed correctly, this door should have used some kind of blood as the key, but now the blood has obviously expired, so it should be forced open with kingdom power.”
The Octopus King didn’t have time to ask what it meant to roast. He quickly channeled the kingdom power into those symbols. The symbols suddenly shined brightly, and the patterns on the gates were also changing rapidly, turning into 18 incomparably clear basic ancient runes. With a rumbling sound, it finally opened.
“How did you know about ancient runes?” The Octopus King looked annoyed. As he was tragically defeated in the ‘Fate Showdown’ when he came on the way, he always wanted to use an opportunity to show off his strength and redeem his reputation, but he didn’t expect the limelight to be robbed by this guy again.
“Your illusion!” Up to now, Chen Rui had some understanding of Octopus King’s temperament. He laughed as he walked toward the door.
Behind the gate was a large hall. Except for the blue shining halo on the central ground, there were no extra furnishings. There were many materials on the ground. As Raizen said, the 4th floor was usually open once every 7 days. Tiffany went in for a long period this time, so when President Turia entered with this noble lady, he left a lot of spare materials just in case.
Chen Rui used [Deep Analysis] to recall the method that Nate used to activate the halo previously. As he inserted the materials into the grooves around the halo in order, the halo suddenly emitted a dazzling blue light, and a royal blue light gate appeared in the center.
“You dare to say you haven’t been here before?”
“Alright , don’t bother about the details.” Chen Rui shrugged to Octopus King as he passed the cloak and glasses over, “The inside is the real 4th floor. Put on this first just in case, especially the cloak. It should save a lot of trouble. After all, our purpose of this trip is to find someone.”
“Hmph!” Octopus King took the glasses and cloak, thought about it, and put it on.
The 2 of them stepped into the space door. After the scene was distorted for a while, they had entered another world.
This world was like a big screen with countless small screens in the middle that were sub-worlds. These sub-worlds gradually change like entrances to activities.
Chen Rui and Red Pipit walked in the void. Every time they took a step, a translucent step would automatically appear under their feet.
There were countless mysterious knowledge and strength in the world of these activities. Those who enter could choose the entrance to browse or comprehend. However, this process must be completed within a limited time. Once the red light of the glasses emitted a warning, the red jade lock on the cloak must be crushed immediately. This would directly send them out the gate.
However, Chen Rui’s purpose today was not for knowledge, but for Tiffany, so he took off his glasses. The functions of these magic glasses were mainly timeout alarm and ‘filtering’. As soon as they were taken off, the sight in his sight changed drastically.
All the worlds were gone. They turned into symbols of various sizes that flicker all over the sky- Ancient runes!
This was the world of ancient runes! Just like the binary ‘1’ and ‘0’ in the computer, everything was composed of 18 basic symbols. If the ancient runes in Chen Rui’s mind were a short essay composed of words and sentences, then the entire world of the 4th floor was a coherent and complete long story.
Although it was not the first time Chen Rui saw such a spectacle, he was still awe-struck.
These runes were mysterious and profound. Even with Chen Rui’s current level, he still couldn’t fully comprehend them. The [Deep Analysis] suddenly operated at high speed.
“This place makes me feel uneasy,” Octopus King took off his glasses, showing a surprised expression, and he put them on again “Okay, I’ll listen to you next. What shall we do?”
“Don’t wander around. Let me have a look.” Chen Rui focused his attention and began to analyze the traces and rhythm of these runes. It was too difficult to find Tiffany from so many sub-worlds in a limited time. This direct analysis method of the essence was the most direct.
“There seems to be a trace of change here, maybe we can go from here…” Chen Rui turned his head, and he was shocked suddenly because the Octopus King who had been waiting for him to act suddenly disappeared. An ominous premonition surged in his mind.
TL: Hmm, did he get teleported away or he see something interesting…
