At this time, the crystal clear starry sky gradually faded like a soulless body. Chen Rui’s figure appeared in the sky.
The near-annihilation scene just now left him with lingering fears. That power was too terrifying which was beyond his reach with his current strength. Fortunately, he had Super System. Otherwise, he would have been annihilated in an instant.
The trace of power extracted by the Super System at the critical moment could not actually be converted into an aura. It was just swallowed by the Super System’s [Star Devouring] and kept in [Star Conversion].
With the moment of fright just now, Chen Rui did not dare to easily touch this terrifying power. He temporarily closed the [Star Conversion] function and sealed it inside. He would slowly study it when the strength and timing were ripe.
After the refinement of the star space, Chen Rui’s Star Power had been fully purified and consolidated. His comprehensive strength advanced to S++ while his strength, physique, and speed had finally reached S++ which was synchronized with his spirit power. He was only one step away from the real kingdomized.
The most important thing was that Chen Rui had figured out the way forward. He would no longer forcibly comprehend the law, including the power of the Shackles of True Flame that he had absorbed, but he would further refine his strength. By then, everything would fall into place, and he could use the strongest form to break through the bottleneck.
At this moment, Chen Rui frowned suddenly as he saw that the space of the sky began to appear irregularly distorted. All the nearby stars were repelled, and a vague human figure appeared in the space of stars.
This figure seemed to be teleported by a special power. It was originally just a phantasm, then the phantasm quickly became clear while the accompanying vast momentum became more and more intense. The participants in the small star towers below were protected in a small independent space, but they still could clearly feel the overwhelming and terrifying strength.
The luster of the entire starry sky became dimmed, and even the stars seemed to be shaking slightly. In a blink of an eye. The figure has quickly completed its materialization. The information in the [Analytical Eyes] caused Chen Rui’s brows to be slightly frowned as a cold light flashed across his eyes.
This was a tall man in a long robe. He had white hair and blue eyes with a handsome appearance. The white and blue robe were embossed with gold edges. Behind him were 2 pairs of white wings which looked gorgeous and dignified, exuding light and holy breath.
Race: Human (Mutated).
Comprehensive Strength Assessment: SS.
Physique: SS-, Strength:SS-, Spirit: SS+, Speed: SS-.
[Analysis]: Light attribute, water attribute, space compression.
Degree of danger: Extremely dangerous!
With this kind of clothing, power breath and data, Chen Rui immediately knew the identity of the visitor.
The Holy Church’s 4-winged angel!
Not only the participants of the Tower of Light, but even the senior executives of Starlight College in front of the magic mirror were shocked. The angels of the Holy Church are already Demi-God-level super powerhouses. They actually descended into the space of the Star Tower. This is something that has never happened before!
The 3 deans exchanged glances quickly and had a unified opinion in an instant. Regiana nodded, “You guys keep an eye here, I will go and invite the old dean immediately.”
In the space of the Star Tower, the 4-winged angel exuded a powerful deterrent momentum. Looking at the man who was floating in the air on the opposite side without showing any surprise or awe, he frowned slightly, “My name is Ze Hongen, one of the cherubs under the Light God. Human, tell me your name?”
Ze Hongen’s momentum did give Chen Rui a lot of pressure. However, he was not as nervous as facing Isyorul at the beginning. Since he had unlocked the Shackles of True Flame’s restrictions, he could activate [Pole Star Transformation] as he wished.
Ze Hongen’s strength was at the same level as Isyorul, so facing this Ze Hongen who wanted to deter Chen Rui as soon as he appeared, he was very calm.
Since Master Roman had died just now, Chen Rui bowed slightly and answered without shame, “Paglio.”
“Your calmness surprised me. I have to compliment you. You’re the most outstanding Demon Overlord I have ever seen. You’re indeed an outstanding person who can influence ‘that kind of power’.” Ze Hongen put away his deterrence and praised him.
“‘That kind of power?” Chen Rui asked tentatively, “Is it the original body of this projection space?”
A shocked expression flashed through Ze Hongen’s eyes, “You can actually see that this is a projection?”
“It’s just a little talent. I hope Sir Ze Hongen can satisfy my curiosity.” Chen Rui intended to inquire more, so he pretended to be polite.
“Unfortunately, Paglio, this is one of the top secrets of the Holy Church.” Ze Hongen shook his head, “However, you still have a chance. With your talent and comprehension ability, as long as you join the church, it is only a matter of time before you can understand this secret. Maybe one day, there is still a chance to really touch it when your strength and level are enough.”
“Sir means…” Chen Rui’s eyes lit up, “Join the church?”
At this time, the light outside the Star Tower flashed, and 2 people appeared. One was Dean Regiana, who had disappeared not long ago, and the other was an old man with white beard and hair. At a closer look, his skin was lustrous and ruddy, and his eyes were piercing, revealing a vitality that was not commensurate with his age.
As soon as this old man appeared, several senior college executives bowed, “Old dean!”
This was Old Dean Carlisle who was the earlier predecessor of Starlight College. He had been researching in college. It was said that his strength had entered the level of the super powerhouse.
Carlisle nodded slightly, then he set his gaze on the magic mirror. He was shocked instantly, “Ze Hongen?”
Regiana asked, “Old dean, this Ze Hongen…”
“The 4-winged cherub under the Holy Church’s 3 archangels, Raphael. He is known as the ‘God of Exploration’.” Carlisle sighed, “His strength is even above mine.”
Regiana was secretly surprised, “How could this cherub descend in the space of the Star Tower?”
“The Star Tower is a projection space created by something in the Holy Light Mountain.” Carlisle shook his head slightly. “This matter involves a secret that was at least 1 hundred thousand ago; even I am not sure of the insider story. Even so, no church angels have come directly in the history of the Star Tower. I think you need to tell me in detail what happened previously. Especially regarding the person in front of Ze Hongen.I think this abnormality should have something to do with him.”
The magic mirror could not transmit sound, so the conversation between Chen Rui and Ze Hongen could not be heard by Carlisle and others outside.
“Talking to smart people is easy.” Ze Hongen smiled warmly, “You have strength, potential, and talent. You will be trained as the most important talent and given all the necessary resources. If you are willing, I can recommend you to be a holy apprentice of the archangel, Sir Raphael.”
“Holy apprentice?” Chen Rui showed a knowing smile. He faced 4 holy apprentices last time, inflicting heavy injuries to 2 and killing 2. He later fooled the other 8 holy apprentices during the encirclement battle.
“Holy apprentice is the strongest warrior of God. Every holy apprentice has special abilities and eternal life. Even if the body dies, the soul will be reborn in the kingdom of God.” Ze Hongen’s words were full of temptation, but he didn’t know that the truth of the so-called ‘reborn’ had long been seen through by the person in front of him.
“As far as I know, the basic condition of a holy apprentice should be the [Body of Light Blessing]?” Chen Rui asked calmly, “I don’t have that kind of royal bloodline.”
He was indeed not the [Body of Light Blessing], but the [Body of Light Glory] which was the highest light-element physique that the current Pope Vantis had.
“It seems that you know the church quite well.” Ze Hongen’s smile remained unchanged, “There is indeed such a condition to be a holy apprentice, but a talent like you can be promoted exceptionally. If you can break through the kingdom level, then Sir Raphael will personally baptize you and give you the power of an angel.”
“That’s the case.” Chen Rui showed an understanding expression and suddenly added, “It’s like… you?”
Ze Hongen raised his brows and his tone became cold, “You seem to lack the necessary reverence toward me. I warn you that appreciation does not mean connivance. You have only 2 ways to go, join the church or die.”
You finally reveal your hideous real face? Chen Rui sneered secretly and shrugged, “Sir Ze Hongen, I didn’t say that I’m not joining. I just feel strange that without the [Body of Light Blessing], I can become a holy apprentice… It seems like the loss of the Snow Dallet made our Sir Light God to be less picky…”
“How dare you! This is blasphemy!” Ze Hongen’s eyes flashed, and the pressing momentum was exuded again, “The Snow Dallet… Where did you hear the rumors?”
“Is it a rumor?” Chen Rui did not panic, “I’m thinking about one thing now, what is the original body of the projection? To be called the top secret of the Holy Church, is it something in the Light Divinity Temple at the peak of Holy Light Mountain? I should have touched the power of that thing via its projection, that’s why you, the 4-winged angel, came here, right?”
Ze Hongen shook slightly. He waved his hands immediately to seal the surrounding space before shouting, “Who are you?”
“It’s me who wants to ask that? Are you an angel? A human? Or… one of the true blasphemers who steals God’s faith?”
This sentence made Ze Hongen’s face suddenly change. I didn’t expect to encounter such a strange person after spending a lot of effort to activate the secret technique to reach this projection space!
He was about to make a move when he suddenly saw a light.
The intense blue light was so dazzling that even the entire starry sky that was suppressed by his momentum became shining.
Feeling the terrifying breath oncoming, Ze Hongen was horrified and had a bad hunch. He didn’t care much, and pointed to the center of the bright blue light, “Punishment Sword!”
A white light flashed out like a sharp sword, and the rays of stars along the way were unbelievably cut apart.
However, when the white light approached the bright blue light, it seemed to have encountered some terrifying oppression. It was unable to move an inch forward. Ze Hongen waved, and the white light returned to his hand. It was a silver greatsword. The 4-winged angel looked very solemn.
Old Dean Carlisle and others in front of the magic mirror were also stunned. The blue light as dazzling as the sun actually possessed the strength to compete with the 4-winged angel, Ze Hongen!
Landbis in the small Star Tower below was the most shocked. Although the dialogue between the 2 could not be heard after Ze Hongen sealed the space, she recognized the incomparable blue light at a glance. She finally knew the identity of this person who created continuous shocks.
