The name ‘Sariel’ sounded familiar to Chen Rui. He should have seen it in the religious materials that he occasionally read on the Internet in the previous life, but in this magical with with Lucifer, Satan, Michael… it was not surprising that there was 1 more ‘Sariel’. It could not match with the legend in the memory of that otaku.
Now his fragile life was held in the hand of this Sariel, and the other party had determined his human identity and the [Body of Light Glory] with preconceived consciousness. If he denied or quibbled, he might be killed immediately.
What made Chen Rui most nervous was the vocabulary of ‘soul reborn’. Can he also see through my crossover? It doesn’t look like it when you think about it. Why does he say ‘trick’?
Chen Rui thought quickly, and he replied, “No doubt sir is observant. I’m indeed a human, and… I came from the Holy Light Mountain, but before confessing the whole thing, I want to ask, what does sir mean by the so-called ‘soul reborn trick’?”
“Hmph! You so-called holy apprentices, don’t you think you have eternal life, and your soul can be infinitely reborn in the Kingdom of God?” Sariel said disdainfully, “It’s just a trick to fool believers. If you think you can rely on this to play tricks in front of me, then my Evil Pupil will completely annihilate all your hopes!”
Oh, that’s why. Chen Rui sighed in relief. He frowned when he thought of the ‘eternal life’ mentioned by the holy apprentice Clark and April, “It seems that Sir Sariel is very familiar with the Holy Light Mountain, but when the holy apprentice mentioned this kind of ‘eternity’ to me, my answer was, “I don’t know whether the so-called reborn is true or not. I only know one thing, there is nothing absolutely eternal or immortal. Every existence has a day of decay, even if it is god.”
Sariel was silent for a moment, “You’re wrong, god is truly immortal, even if… you go on. Maybe I will consider giving you a way to survive.”
Chen Rui knew well that the so-called ‘give a way to survive’ was definitely not because of those words, but because the other party already had plans. It seemed that he still had value. Otherwise, as long as Sariel blinked, an ant like him would have been completely annihilated without a chance to speak.
“I would like to clarify 1 matter. I’m definitely not a believer of Michael and those guys! On the contrary, because of the physique problem, I’m regarded as a thorn in the eye by the current Pope Vantis. I was heinously framed and hunted down. In desperation, I took the risk of being devoured by space turbulence to come to the Demon Realm! My body is even imprisoned by Raphael’s law artifact, the Shackles of True Flame.”
The crystal clear intent in Sariel’s black pupil was even greater. Chen Rui only felt a strange power passing by within his body, sending a chill into his spine.
“It’s really Raphael’s Shackles of True Flame.” Sariel seems to be thinking, and the power that bound Chen Rui was gradually loosening, “Your soul fluctuation seems to be calmer. Is it because you have told the truth or found a familiar lying rhythm? But judging from a few pieces of evidence, the former is more likely. Well, according to your storyline, Your Holiness, who owns the [Body of Light Glory] should have become the pope… You should have considered revenge before, right?”
Although Sariel said that he might believe it, Chen Rui knew that these old monsters who had lived for so many years were not easy to deal with, so he still dared not relax in the slightest. “Of course, I want to regain everything I lost. With my [Body of Light Glory], the position of the pope should have been mine… But with my current strength, I can’t shake the foundation of the Holy Light Mountain at all. However, these are all empty talks now. First, saving my life now from sir is the priority.”
Sariel’s voice was a little bit more contemptuous, “You’re smart, but the value you showed is not enough to arouse my interest. It is not enough to make up for the cost of disturbing the kingdom and waking me from sleep.”
The 4th floor of the Book Collection Hall was no doubt the kingdom of Pseudo-God. Chen Rui knew that this was definitely not the broken kingdom of the holy dragon, but the real Pseudo-Kingdom of God. Even though he had now recovered his mobility, he still couldn’t escape. As long as the other party moved his mind, he would be annihilated before entering the [Star Gate], so he could only win with wits.
“I’m commissioned to take away Ms. Tiffany this time. The identity of Ms. Tiffany is a bit special. I’m sorry for the unintentional interruption of sir’s sleep… Moreover, I can show the value that sir needs.”
“Tiffany? What do you want to remind me of?” Sariel said mysteriously, “It seems that you still don’t understand the real purpose of her coming here.”
Chen Rui cautiously tested, “I really don’t know. I only know that she seems to be an apprentice of someone important.”
“Apprentice? What do you want to say?” Sariel seemed to smile, “In fact, she is just a tool of Satan, but she should be an important tool after leaving me.”
Chen Rui roughly understood. Sariel no doubt knew Satan. Perhaps Tiffany should be here under the order of Satan to carry out some kind of ritual or transformation with the help of Sariel’s strength?
“If I knew this was Sir Satan’s instructions, I wouldn’t have accepted Raizen’s commission.
Chen Rui had already scolded Raizen dozens of times, but judging from Raizen’s attitude, he probably didn’t know the secret of the presence of a Pseudo-God powerhouse on the 4th floor. No matter what, it is a scam this time.
The huge eye moved slightly, “Have you really met Satan before?”
“Yes.” Chen Rui held a snake pattern badge in his hand, “This is given to me by Sir Satan, and I can summon him at any time.
“That’s the case…” With Satan’s eyesight, your light-element physique can’t hide from him either. He should have his own plan in giving you the badge to summon his avatar. “Sariel sneered, “You’re very smart as you didn’t summon his avatar in front of me. Then you should understand that your value to Satan does not mean that you are valuable to me.”
“I understand.” Chen Rui bowed, but he was secretly shocked. Sariel inadvertently revealed 2 truths. First, the snake pattern badge in his hand actually summoned the avatar. Second, Satan had long discovered his light-element physique!
The avatar of this world was different from the avatar like Shura. It was equivalent to a kind of projection, and its strength was only part of the original body. Legend has it that when god showed miracles, sometimes the avatar would descend. This belonged to the category of very high strength that could also activate a kingdom power or other secret arts. It was greater than the simple projections or substitutes like Guradam.
As for Satan’s plan, Chen Rui had no idea of it. When he first saw Satan, he probably just had the [Body of Light Blessing]. Later, he made a wise choice to use the [Dual Training] technique to eliminate the trace of power of the Demi-God, but Olypheus still seemed to have some problems with her body…
Sariel asked, “What was the power that you used to devour the origin power of destruction just now?”
Origin power of destruction? Chen Rui remembered the previous scene of using the black hole to devour the pure destructive power, and he replied, “That is a kind of mutated devour talent of mine, but the effect is not unlimited. I can’t use it again after it reaches the limit.”
“Even if the role is limited, it is a great talent to be able to devour the origin power of destruction like that. Perhaps it can play an unexpectedly important role at a critical time. Then… I will give you a choice to accept my Evil Moon Sigil and do 1 matter for me. “
“I have no reason to refuse this only way of life.” Chen Rui gave a wry smile.
There was a faint glow in Sariel’s huge eyes, and a strange symbol slowly flew over.
Chen Rui bowed to the mark, allowing the seal to enter his body without any resistance. After the seal entered the body, it suddenly turned into a strange strength that spread to his soul. An alarm immediately sounded in the Super System, but Chen Rui did not confirm the conversion of the supernatural power. A trace of blood red expression quickly flashed in his eyes, ‘accepting’ the seal in another form.
“Very well, you don’t have to worry about the seal. As long as you don’t betray me, it won’t cause any harm to you. It won’t bother you either. It will also allow you to have part of the Evil Pupil’s strength. If you really accomplish this matter, I will give you generous rewards and even help you regain everything you have lost.”
Chen Rui nodded respectfully, “Please tell me, sir.”
Sariel’s voice was filled with satisfaction, “This matter is actually related to Tiffany. She came here with Satan’s instruction. She wanted to use my power to accomplish something which is related to the agreement between Satan and I back then. Now It seems that it’s almost there.”
Chen Rui thought for a while, “May I take the liberty to ask… what is the matter?”
“I intended to tell you about this incident earlier. Satan needs my power of the Evil Pupil to turn that girl into a key. This key can open a mysterious place.”
Chen Rui was shocked. Tiffany is actually a ‘key’! This is Satan’s real purpose for accepting her as apprentice? This is the ‘destiny’ of the charming girl that I remember?
“Her physique is very special, the light and dark physique. Coupled with Satan’s secret technique and the baptism of my power of the Evil Pupil, we have perfectly synchronized the light and dark attributes of her body with the seal at a mysterious location. This is the meaning of ‘key’. Her baptism has only 2 results. First, she becomes the real key with complete loss of consciousness and crystallization of the flesh and blood. Second, she becomes the person who retains her body and consciousness, but also has the function of a key. Initially, she almost became the first. As you devoured those origin destruction power at the critical moment and the runes you tried also produced some small changes, so her current destiny has changed a little bit. It should be the second result.”
Chen Rui secretly breathed a sigh of relief. In any case, it is better than the first result.
“In fact, this is the result I want. I will do something on her body. At that time, you can use the power of the Evil Pupil to perceive where she is. At a certain time, Satan will let her look for something at the mysterious place with overwhelming origin power of destruction.
With your talent and the Evil Pupil I gave, you should be able to cope with it. All you have to do is to follow her there, then take the thing and give it to me. “
Chen Rui finally understood why Sariel wanted to save him, and he asked, “Sir Sariel, what is the thing that I am going to take?”
“That’s actually just a part of an object. To be precise, it’s half. It should be contained in a silver box.”
This answer made Chen Rui almost unable to restrain the frantic beating in his heart because the other half of the ‘thing’ Sariel said was in his hands!
TL: At least Sariel still can’t see through his Super System. Will the seal bring Tiffany to him though, hmm…
