This battle would affect the fate of everyone present. Whether it was the titans, the wind elementals or dragons and the knights, their attention was focused on Chen Rui and Red Dragon Russola.
Chen Rui’s figure flashed, and he had already teleported in front of Russola. He chopped down with a hand knife.
It looked like it was just a slash, but in fact, he had slashed more than 100 times. The intangible sword qi from the sky swept toward the red dragon.
The opponent’s first move was not unexpected by the red dragon. Facing the powerful sharp qi coming toward him, Russola waved his hand calmly.
More than a hundred ‘blades‘ wrapped in flames appeared in everyone’s sight. In the unbelievably high temperature, the blades became thinner at a rapid speed visible to the naked eye. They evaporated before touching the red dragon.
The power of [Aura Blade] was not only in its sharpness and inflicting injury from the distance, but also in its intangible aspect. Russola’s fire element power actually turned [Aura Blade] into something tangible. What’s even more amazing was that it could directly burn the power of law. He was worthy of being the kingdom-level red dragon with the strongest fire talent.
Russola waved his hand again, and Chen Rui felt that a wave of fire engulfed the [Aura Blade]’s momentum and rolled toward him. He moved quickly to the distance with a shift of mind to dodge the blow.
The probe made Russola completely determine the opponent’s strength. Although his attack method is strange and fierce, it should be at the intermediate stage of kingdom level, which is still a long way from the peak stage kingdom. Moreover, dragons have a unique talent, so his combat power generally exceeded the average powerhouse of the same level. Therefore, there was no suspense in this battle.
Russola’s eyes showed strong confidence. The element power on his body began to condense quickly. He was determined to finish off Chen Rui with 1 move, but Chen Rui was faster as he had made the second round of attacks.
Numerous destructive light balls appeared around Russola, blocking all directions to evade – Since Chen Rui mastered the rudiment of destruction law, the [Aurora Shot] skill had been enhanced a lot. The attack mode and the number of controls also had great improvements. Especially after the [Blue Pole Star Transformation] was activated, the power had drastically improved.
Chen Rui didn’t give the red dragon too much time to react. He put his hands together, and the [Aurora Shots] in all directions whirred toward Russola in the center. Russola didn’t panic. The condensed power erupted, and the surrounding fire elements began to rotate rapidly. Under the terrifying high temperature, everyone’s vision gradually became blurred.
The red dragon turned into a huge fiery red storm with astonishing momentum. The [Aurora Shots] that rushed into the fiery storm were burned into thin air under the powerful fire law of the peak stage kingdom level. After the fiery red storm engulfed the [Aurora Shot], its power not only did not weaken, but it became even more astonishing. The flames converged into the image of a giant dragon which flapped his wings, and it pounced toward Chen Rui.
It was just a matter of seconds from the moment Chen Rui released [Aurora Shots] to the red dragon activating [Firestorm] to engulf [Aurora Shots] and evolving into a counterattack form of an energy giant dragon. In the eyes of everyone watching the battle, in just a few blinks of an eye, the light balls that filled the sky had disappeared. A terrifying red giant dragon rushed toward Chen Rui and engulfed him in an instant.
After the giant dragon condensed by flames engulfed Chen Rui, its body kept squirming and twisting as if it was tearing and chewing the enemy’s body. This silver smelting area was the sturdiest place in Storm Island. However, the power of the giant flame dragon was too strong. Staggering traces of destruction continued to appear on the ground that was protected by the golden dragon’s enchantment. Even rocks with extremely high melting points turned into liquid.
The giant flame dragon moved suddenly, and his body flashed with cracks which seemed to be torn apart by some massive power. It turned out to be a red meandering huge beast exuding terrifying breath. That kind of violence and berserk was even above the purest fire element.
The huge beast that ripped apart the giant flame dragon continued to roar toward Russola. The red dragon revealed a vigilant expression, and a red translucent shield appeared in front of him, blocking the way of the huge beast.
The huge beast was extremely ferocious. The red shield soon cracked. Russola felt that the pressure was not trivial. His golden-red eyes flashed fiery red, and there was a short magic wand with a red gem in his hand. As he swung the wand, the cracks in the red shield quickly sealed up. In the process of continuous destruction and patching, the light of the huge beast gradually dimmed and finally disappeared. However, Russola had been pushed back for more than 10 meters by this powerful pressure.
The red dragon thought that his strength was a small realm higher than the opponent’s, but he was actually forced back that far, which made him feel humiliated. Just as he was about to fight back, a warning sign suddenly appeared. Chen Rui’s figure suddenly appeared in front of him with a purple glow in his eyes.
When Russola accidentally met that gaze, his body shook as if he was deterred by some special power. His breath suddenly plummeted. Just when Chen Rui was about to make the next move, Russola’s breath skyrocketed. Chen Rui felt terrifying kingdom power coming from all directions, and red chains had already appeared on his body, making him unable to move.
At the same time, the ground instantly turned into a sea of fiery lava. A giant hand condensed by lava stretched out in the sea of fire, holding Chen Rui in his hand.
“Haha” Seeing the victory, Russola couldn’t help but let out a smug laughter, “I forgot to tell you that I have the mutated talent of [Soul Shield]. Any attack or invasion of the soul will not work. Your strongest soul attack is just a joke in front of me. Now your life and death are in my hands. As long as I move my finger, you’ll turn into ashes. Compared to taking the wind elementals and the titans’ lives, I pay more attention to your surrender – you should be convinced by the defeat.”
“Oh, [Soul Shield].” Chen Rui’s voice was unexpectedly calm, “But there is one thing you are mistaken for, soul attack is not my strongest power. From the beginning to now, it is only a warm-up. If that’s all you’ve got, I’m sorry to tell you that you have lost.”
“Stubbornness will only lead to death.” Russola sneered, “Your mouth is much harder than your fist. It seems that you will refuse to admit your failure until you suffer a bit.”
The red gem at the top of Russola’s magic wand emitted a bright light, the lava squeezed the hand with force as the temperature suddenly rose, and the nearby rocks melted. It became a dazzling high-temperature ‘stream’ crisscrossing each other.
“That’s it?” The enemy whom he originally thought should be severely injured let out a disdainful laugh. All of a sudden, there were countless stars in lava’s kingdom, slowly spinning with a strange rhythm as an icy breath spread out. The high-temperature giant hand gradually solidified into ice, and it shattered together with the chain.
Water element power? Russola frowned. No! This is not a water element! It is a completely different law that seems to contain endless destruction.
The opponent’s strength is obviously only around the intermediate stage of the kingdom. This kind of destruction law is far above the fire law that I comprehended. Perhaps it is a kind of innate suppression that causes my [Red Flame Kingdom] to actually have a faint sign of collapse.
What’s even more strange is that neither the previous [Firestorm] giant dragons or the chains and giant hands of the [Red Flame Kingdom] just now seem to have caused any damage to the enemy? Is it an illusion?
Russola had a lot of experience against enemies. His complexion immediately became solemn. It seems that he is a formidable enemy whose combat power is already above the level of strength on the surface. I must not deal with him using regular means. If I’m careless, I will probably fail unexpectedly.
“If you can take my strongest move, consider that I have lost!” Russola was quite scheming. While condensing the power of the kingdom, he delayed the opponent with words.
“Okay!” After all, the time for [Pole Star Transformation] was limited, so Chen Rui intended to quickly end the battle. Once he listened to this suggestion, he agreed without even thinking about it.
Russola’s eyes lit up. Although he used this move which couldn’t control the life and death of the other party, it was still a huge gain to kill ‘Richard’, win this bet, and subdue the titans as well as the wind elementals..
The red dragon’s eyes locked on Chen Rui’s figure, and a string of Dragon Inscriptions came out from his mouth. This string of inscriptions turned into physical texts as soon as he chanted, then it scattered into countless sparks that dissipated into the air. An overwhelming pressure spread out immediately.
Golden Dragon Mayroskea was startled. She turned into a blond woman and rose into the air. While quickly setting up the enchantment, she shouted to the giant dragons and the griffon riders behind, “Back off! This is the Dragon Inscription forbidden spell, [Doomsday Catastrophe]!”
The giant dragons and the griffon riders flew far away while the titans and the wind elementals also quickly retreated under the signal of the Wind Elemental King.
When the spectators on both sides retreated again for about a kilometer, there was a powerful shake. Their vision became distorted and blurred in an instant. Flames continued to fall from the sky, then their bodies were repelled by a terrifying shock wave. All their senses were filled with redness and fiery heat; nothing was left to be seen.
The terrifying feeling lasted for half an hour before gradually fading. A huge mushroom cloud appeared above the distant battle.
With such a terrifying power, let alone ‘Richard’, even the most sturdy silver smelting area in this area must have been almost destroyed.
The one with the best eyesight was Golden Dragon Mayroskea. She was shocked. Her face was full of unbelievable expressions because she saw starlight in the mushroom cloud caused by the [Doomsday Catastrophe] big explosion. That dazzling light did not weaken in the slightest.
An indifferent voice sounded, “It’s a very ‘gorgeous’ forbidden spell which reminds me of some kind of destruction weapon in my memory, but unfortunately, it’s just gorgeous.”
“Impossible!” Russola gasped because it took too much energy to cast the forbidden spell. His eyes were fixed on the figure who was strolling in the lava of [Red Flame Kingdom]. His breath did not weaken in the slightest. Except for some cracks on the armor, the terrifying Dragon Inscription forbidden spell just now did not cause any damage to him!
Not to mention the strength of the intermediate stage kingdom, even peak stage kingdom is impossible to survive that!
“The fact is in front of you. Without having to fight back, you have already lost.” Chen Rui stopped and looked at the red dragon, “You plus the lives of all the dragons and the knights, are mine.”
Mayroskea in the distance had recovered from the shock. The golden dragon responded quickly as she crushed a colorful dragon scale in her hand without hesitation.
TL: Fairy dragon scale or maybe something more powerful like rainbow dragon?
