In the God Prayer Hall of the Secret Language Stone Palace, the countless half-moon runes that slashed at high speed gradually faded away, and the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts’ bodies were scattered on the ground like shredded paper.
Baji’s expression was very natural. In her greatest consciousness, her master was omnipotent. As a slave, she could dedicate her life to the master at any time.
After Chen Rui destroyed the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts, he rushed into the God Prayer Hall with Baji.
The God Prayer Hall was the center of the Secret Language Stone Palace. It was very spacious. The most eye-catching was the statue directly in front. The statue looked burly with full-body armor, and it held a greatsword and a hammer. It should be the god of the orcs.
On the walls on both sides, there were also wall paintings. The theme was naturally the various legends of the Orc God. Among these legends, a figure appeared consistently. It was a woman wearing a cloak and holding a staff. At the top of the staff was a beast skull with horns.
According to Baji’s previous description, this woman was the spiritual leader of the orc tribe, the Great Wizard Longmetil who was said to be able to communicate with the will of Orc God.
Chen Rui showed a contemplative expression. The Holy Light’s 3 archangels stole faith under the watch of Light God, and the Demon Realm has not seen miracles in countless years. Satan and Sariel revealed that the gods should be sleeping or in another hibernating state. If Orc God is really one of the gods, then the so-called ‘communicate with will’ of this great wizard is a bit unexplainable.
It stands to reason that Great Wizard Longmetil should be in this hall, but I don’t know why she is missing. At this moment, 4 black figures suddenly appeared in the 4 corners of the main hall, and they slowly moved closer. They exuded a cold and terrifying breath, which surrounded Chen Rui and Baji. These 4 black figures wore black cloaks and bright golden masks on their faces.
The man on the east spoke up, “Baji, you sinner who betrayed God, actually colluded with outsiders to trespass into the Secret Language Stone Palace! Both you and the intruder will receive the strongest sanctions!”
“The 4 secret guards!” Baji whispered. The 4 secret guards were the guardian of the great wizard. They had great strength and never showed their true faces. She initially heard that 3 people were ordered to go out, so she didn’t expect that they had returned in secret.
These 4 had the Demon Overlord level strength, but the combat power was inferior to the 3 Orc Kings of the Thunderstorm Tribe, but one thing aroused Chen Rui’s surprise. In the display of the [Analytical Eyes], these 4 are actually human!
The highest guardian of the orc tribe is actually not orcs or half-orc, but human?
As Blanche’s situation was very critical now, Chen Rui didn’t have time to think about these things. The momentum of the peak stage of the Demon Overlord completely burst out, and he asked, “Where is Longmetil? Say or die!”
This shout contained Evil Pupil’s mental pressure, and the 4 of them shook together. The cold murderous aura seemed to have encountered a sky full of flames, and they were completely dissolved. They all looked shocked.
However, this shock only lasted for a while. The 4 of them groaned at the same time and cut their wrists. The blood evaporated into strange light patterns as the ground in the God Prayer Hall showed a corresponding mark, which quickly merged at 1 place. It seemed to be a 6-pointed star array with something vaguely appearing in the middle.
Before he could see what it was, Chen Rui felt that his vision had changed drastically. He was already in a strange space with Baji, and the 4 guards had disappeared. Just as Chen Rui was frowning, something appeared in the center. From a distance, it was a giant snake-like creature that floated in the air.
This creature gave Chen Rui a terrifying hunch, and Baji’s horrified voice sounded, “Be careful, master! This is a god-given weapon…”
Before Baji’s words were finished, the ‘giant snake’ burst out with a bright red light. Just as Chen Rui wanted to hold Baji, there was a strong warning in his mind. Before he could think about it, he immediately activated the defensive shield.
Baji’s figure trembled as her body was instantly divided into countless pieces. Before the pieces fell to the ground, they had already burnt. There were not even ashes left.
There were countless tiny cut marks on the defensive shield. With a ‘bang’, it actually shattered. Chen Rui’s pupils shrank: Even the defensive shield can only resist for a while?
When the light of the giant snake lit up again, Chen Rui immediately turned on the power of [Deep Analysis]. In his eyes, he could clearly see that it was a red silk condensed by countless energy. They were weaving and spreading at a high speed. It instantly annihilated Baji and destroyed the defensive shield. The horror of its power was evident.
Chen Rui launched the [Light Boom] without hesitation, and his figure was dodging at high speed like a lightning. This was almost like dancing on a steel wire. [Light Boom] could only be used once an hour, and he could only become the light for a limited time. When slowing down, Chen Rui was a bit slow to dodge, and there was already a thin bloodstain on his face- With my body’s defense power, I actually can not resist the red silk!
Not only that, the red silk also contains a terrifying energy. It is not pure fire power, but some kind of annihilation law power. Once I am hit, I will be annihilated like Baji.
Such a terrifying strength… Is it really a weapon given by God?
Taking advantage of the time before the giant snake’s next wave of attacks, Chen Rui opened his hand, and several [Aurora Shots] were launched. The giant snake trembled slightly after being hit, but it was unharmed. The red silks of death were triggered again.
Chen Rui could no longer use the [Light Boom] technique. A simple big shield appeared in his hand. During the continuously activated teleportation, he felt that the Demon Shield in his hand shook constantly, and there were a few more bloodstains in the place that could not be blocked. Fortunately, they were just external injuries.
Demon Shield’s defensive power was no doubt strong. The red silk that could instantly disintegrate the ‘defensive shield’ did not leave any marks on it, but Chen Rui still looked solemn. If this went on, he would become more and more passive. A careless move or exhaustion would result in Baji’s footsteps.
Although the previous [Aurora Shots] could not destroy the giant snake, Chen Rui felt that the giant snake seemed to only attack and not defend, so [Aurora Shots] still caused a certain amount of impact. He made a decision immediately and used the strongest attack to defeat the giant snake and escape from this terrifying space!
Thinking of this, Chen Rui shifted his mind and put away the Demon Shield. His body quickly flared with red flames, and a pair of red light wings appeared behind him like the wings of a phoenix. As soon as the wings came out, the strength of the red flames became stronger like it was about to burst out violently.
The god-given weapon did not give him a chance to channel. Countless red silks interwove into a net of death which burst out again. At this time, Chen Rui was in the midst of brewing a big move. He could not use the Illusive Demon Shield to protect himself, so he was about to be covered by the gigantic red net.
All of a sudden, the high-speed spreading red silk stagnated as if the flow of time in the entire space had changed. Everything had slowed down except for Chen Rui.
However, the red silk quickly recovered its speed and accelerated. At this time, dozens of red winding giant snake-shaped beasts with terrifying breath appeared and charged at the giant snake.
[Scorching Dragon Roar]!
In the blink of an eye, the red net and [Scorching Dragon Roar] had passed through each other. They didn’t seem to do anything to each other.
When the figure with light wings was passed through by the red net, he turned into countless pieces while the Scorching Dragon berserk wave also engulfed the giant snake. The whole space shook during the surge. It finally could not bear it and turned into nothingness amidst an explosion sound.
The scene was back to the God Prayer Hall. The mark of the 6-pointed star array had extinguished. It seemed to be the huge recoil caused by the destruction of the god-given weapon. The 4 secret guards fell to the ground. 3 of them even lost all their vitality as their bodies gradually faded. They might be annihilated at any time.
The phantasms of the ‘giant snake’ in the center still existed, but the image was gradually dimming. Upon closer inspection, it was a whip with a faint red light.
“Oh…” Chen Rui’s voice sounded. The body scattered into countless ‘fragments’, no, to be precise, it was flies, regrouped into the human form, “This is not really a weapon, but a projection. You just used the secret technique of life to activate the projection power, but now that I have destroyed the projection, your fire of life will be completely extinguished too.”
In fact, Chen Rui still had lingering fears about that whip. This ‘whip’ was one of the most terrifying weapons he had ever seen. Just a projection could easily annihilate the peak stage of the Demon Overlord. Even the time law he mastered could hardly restrain its strength. If he hadn’t activated the God-Eating Mask’s [Demonic Flies Transformation] in time, he wouldn’t have escaped the catastrophe and would have been truly torn into pieces.
“Where is the half-elf girl!” Chen Rui walked to the only surviving secret guard. With a thought, he activated [Spring Territory], which slowed down the opponent’s dying life, “Speak up! I can save your life!”
“The believer will definitely be reborn under the might of God!” The secret guard’s voice was weak, but full of enthusiasm.
“Let’s not say whether the Orc God is already asleep. Even if he’s not, will he care for a human like this?” Chen Rui’s sneer made the secret guard body shake, and he refused to make any noise again.
Since the previous Baji had died, Chen Rui intentionally activated the God-Eating Mask to turn this secret guard into a puppet, but the other party’s soul seemed to have a special connection with the whip projection. Now the projection had collapsed and his soul fire might be extinguished at any time. Even the resurrection potion might not be effective.
Chen Rui was about to give it a try when he suddenly felt that the surrounding fluctuations were different. It should be because of the rapid disappearance of the power of the long whip projection which caused something that was originally hidden to be revealed.
“Ancient runes?” Chen Rui was very familiar with this kind of fluctuation. His eyes immediately fell on those corners, “Hmph! Illusion structure, real mimicry, breath concealing… It turns out that the God Prayer Hall I saw is not the real hall.”
This arrangement of ancient runes was extremely mysterious to ordinary magic circle masters and could not be cracked at all. However, according to Chen Rui, who had been studying ancient runes, these were only fairly basic applications, and the level was much lower than him.
It didn’t take long for the ancient runes that concealed and created the illusion were cancelled, and the God Prayer Hall revealed its true colors.
The first thing Chen Rui saw was the changes in front of him. There were no Orc God statues, but some relief sculptures. To be precise, there were 3 layers. These relief sculptures conceal the breath of faith, but they were concealed by a strange strength. It was impossible to see the true face of the relief sculpture which looked gloomy and eerie.
This familiar scene shocked Chen Rui. Thinking of the 4 secret guards dressed in black cloaks and metal masks, he immediately reacted- The mysterious cult! The Black Death Follower!
