Compared with the emotion and surprise of a few people such as Raizen, most people in the Demon Realm thought it was natural for Catherine, the great emperor of the Dark Shadow Empire, to enter the finals.
The second semi-final was the Fallen Angel Empire’s Prince Consort ‘Aguile’ against the mysterious powerhouse Lalaria.
Due to serious damage, the forest area of the last match was no longer available. This game was set on a small plain in the center of the ancient battlefield.
The audience and the ‘insiders’ were on the same page. Faced with Lalaria, who easily defeated Raizen, ‘Aguile’ basically had no chance of victory.
Even many people in the group of relatives and friends also thought so, which was actually very rational. Of course, there were also people including Alice, Ms. Black Dragon, Adeline and others who blindly believed that their elder brother (boss) will win. Athena, Kia, and others did not care much about the outcome; they were just worried that their lover would be injured. As for the 2 unscrupulous friends, they started a bet on how long Chen Rui could last under Lalaria’s hands.
The semi-final between Chen Rui and Lalaria had finally begun.
“Hohoho…” Looking at the masked ‘enemy’, the mustached flat-chested loli on the opposite side laughed strangely. “Finally, this day has arrived! Speaking of which, I would like to thank you. If it wasn’t for your stimulation, I wouldn’t get the most critical breakthrough in that hellish training! This time, I want to take revenge, revenge and revenge!”
With that said, the flat-chested loli stomped hard, and the ground shook.
Chen Rui pointed to his nose and said in surprise, “Is the hatred between us that high?”
“Hmph! Not to mention that you won all of my fortunes a year ago, according to the damn agreement with the old man, if I lose to you again this time, I will commit myself to a stinky man like you!” The mustached flat-chested loli almost roared, “Isn’t this a deep hatred? For the sake of the old man and Olypheus, I will spare your life this time. But you have to spit out all of my property!”
In front of the magic television, Raizen frowned as he listened to the ‘interpretation’ of the lip-interpreter beside him. Judging from the dialogue between the 2 sides, ‘Aguile’ actually encountered the Demi-God powerhouse, Lalaria, a year ago. When Lalaria lost to him, it even involved disputes such as marriage contracts. In any case, this ‘intimate’ relationship is not a good thing for the Bloody Empire.
“If it’s just property, I’m fine giving you back.” Chen Rui was not pretending to be generous. In fact, the property he won a year ago was all sealed by old father-in-law Auglas except for the Wind Dragon Island that was needed to make the titans, “But I’m sorry, I can’t lose to you, because I have a reason to be in the finals. As for the marriage contract, it’s just Sir Auglas’s usual trick. There’s no need to be so serious.”
“Ridiculous! I, Sir Lalaria, just have to move a finger to defeat you. Who needs you to compromise?” The flat-chested loli’s dark eyes flashed coldly. “I’ll beat you up now!”
As soon as the words ended, the mustached flat-chested loli roared. The shout spread forward along with the extremely terrifying breath, and a large number of cracks appeared on the ground in a radial pattern.
Chen Rui’s mind had an alarming sign, and he crossed his arms in front. Almost at the same time, a terrifying coercion pushed him back.
When he stood firm, he found that he had actually appeared dozens of meters away. There were 2 amazing drag marks under his feet.
Chen Rui felt numbness in his arms, and he was secretly horrified. My current strength has reached the peak stage of the Kingdom level, yet I barely resisted Lalaria’s breath. Is this the strength of the Demi-God level?
The mustached flat-chested loli suddenly appeared above Chen Rui with a strange laugh.
Chen Rui didn’t have the slightest warning in advance for Lalaria’s movement. It was only when the flat-chested loli raised her fist that the feeling of danger surged. This was no longer a simple high speed, but a kind of pressing momentum.
Fortunately, the [Analytical Eyes] had prompted before he sensed it. Chen Rui subconsciously activated his defensive barrier.
The defensive barrier of the Red Pole Star Emperor was far superior to the Blue Pole Star Emperor, but in front of Lalaria, the defensive barrier was as fragile as a glass ball. It shattered with a ‘bang’.
Lalaria’s punch hit Chen Rui, but she suddenly had a strange feeling as if time suddenly stopped before hitting the target, making the punch miss the target. Meanwhile, the opponent had shifted to the distance.
“Peak stage of the Kingdom level? You’ve actually reached this level.” Lalaria was slightly surprised, “It’s quite an astonishing rate of progress… However, even with that special time law, it’s far from being my opponent. There is an insurmountable gap between Demi-God and the Kingdom level! As a reminder, I will use a little more force in the next punch. You better equip the armor last time in advance, then maybe you can fight a little longer. I will give you this time.”
Peak stage of the Kingdom level! Listening to the lip-reader’s ‘live’ interpretation, Raizen’s facial expression became even more unsightly. This year, I made a leap to the intermediate stage of the Kingdom level. I initially wanted to shock everyone by beating Catherine and Aguile. I didn’t expect Catherine to defeat Red Pipit who was at a higher level, then ‘Aguile’ unbelievably reached the peak stage of the Kingdom level!
It seems like among the 3 of us: Catherine, ‘Aguile’ and I. My strength is already at the bottom.
Chen Rui took a deep breath. Although he had experienced the blow from the old father-in-law Auglas, he was facing a Demi-God-level opponent for the first time. As Lalaria said, between Demi-God and the Kingdom level, there was indeed an insurmountable gap.
The only thing that could compete with her was the [Red Pole Star Transformation], but Chen Rui didn’t want to activate it immediately. Lalaria’s strength is just entering the Demi-God level, and this chick is at most revengeful to beat me, so she will not really launch a killing move. Fighting against her is a rare opportunity to practice. Maybe I can find the path to the next level.
Thinking of this, Chen Rui did not activate [Pole Star Transformation], but he launched an attack actively. A light ball with a diameter of about 2 meters appeared in his hand, then it quickly became smaller as it seemed to be quickly compressed by something. After a few compressions, the diameter of the light ball had become about 30 centimeters before whistling toward the mustached flat-chested loli.
Lalaria sensed the powerful destruction power carried by the light ball, but she didn’t avoid it. She punched the light ball, and there was a violent shock in the space. The light ball scattered into countless luminous spots and fell to the ground. Potholes actually appeared on the hard ground due to the scattered luminous spots, which showed the power of the light ball.
Lalaria looked at the slight scratches on her fist in surprise, “Such a pure destruction law power. In terms of origin, it is almost close to Demi-God, but unfortunately, your strength is too weak. If you are a Demi-God, I would not dare to resist it forcefully.”
Just as the last word was spoken, Lalaria suddenly blinked out in front of Chen Rui with another punch.
This time Chen Rui had already vaguely figured Lalaria’s movements, but the law power carried by that punch firmly locked Chen Rui. It made him instinctively feel unable to dodge and resist, just like facing the Kingdom-level Isyorul when he was at the Demon Overlord level.
In terms of feeling, Demi-God’s law power was richer, more complete, and closer to the origin of matter than the kingdom’s law.
In the blink of an eye, Lalaria’s punch penetrated Chen Rui’s… phantasms.
“Damn law!” Lalaria missed again. She was even more surprised. When she was at the peak stage of the Kingdom level strength, she had trained with Auglas in actual combat more than once, and every time she was completely abused. Under the premise that Auglas suppressed his strength to the early stage of the Demi-God, she could hardly dodge a single blow.
Lalaria knew exactly how a Kingdom level felt when facing a Demi-God, but she didn’t expect this guy to dodge her attacks twice in the same way.
“It’s kind of interesting, but your kind of law consumes a lot of spirit power, so it’s impossible to activate it continuously.” The mustache on Lalaria’s lips jumped. She flashed with white light and turned into 3 images after the overlapping figures shook: the loli, the teen girl, and the elder sister. They rushed toward Chen Rui from different directions.
This time, it was way out of Chen Rui’s expectations. The speed of the 3 Lalaria was not inferior to a single one, and they were all an entity. It was the magical effect of Lalaria’s talent, [Magic Soul Eyes].
Although the strength of the 3 Lalaria was only equal to 1/3 of the original body, they were not what Chen Rui could resist. Just as he used time law to evade the loli’s attack, his shifting position had been locked by the teen girl. He barely used the time law to escape, and the elder sister appeared in front of her in an instant.
The continuous activation of time law under such high pressure exhausted a lot of Chen Rui’s strength. This time, he was half a beat slower, and he was blown away by the momentum exuded by the elder sister Lalaria. Just after landing, a powerful breath burst out from behind. His body was moved involuntarily.
The 3 Lalaria formed a triangular formation and did not attack directly. In the midst of the bright white light, 3 powerful momentums pressed Chen Rui in the middle. He was unable to move.
“Hohoho…” The loli, the teen girl, and the elder sister all laughed strangely at the same time, “No doubt it’s an interesting toy. I really can’t bear to end this game.”
Catherine, who was watching the projection in the arena, shook her head: Although I beat Red Pipit by luck in the last match, the difference in the big realm is by no means comparable to that of a small realm. Even if Chen Rui has reached the peak stage of the Kingdom level, there is still no chance of winning at all in the face of Demi-God Lalaria.
This was also Chen Rui’s current feeling. He let out a long breath and finally activated his strongest power.
The 2 moons in the sky suddenly turned fiery red, and numerous cracks suddenly appeared on the ground in the center of the 3 white light balls. The red light with vague spots of bright starlight quickly spread, and the 3 white light balls were actually suppressed.
The faces of the Lalarias all showed expressions of surprise as they increased the output of breath, but they still couldn’t suppress the red light in the center. Their bodies actually began to move backward just like the previous Chen Rui.
Such a powerful breath! And it’s still skyrocketing like crazy! Lalaria’s facial expression had changed, and her eyes had a solemn expression. The 3 had combined into 1, and the white light on her body suddenly increased several times.
The white light and the red starlight were actually in a stalemate. The soil and stones peeled off on the cracked ground instantly turned into dust under the terrifying pressure.
The whole ground was shaking. Not only the small plains, but even the arena far away in the Iron Fist City could feel the shake.
Raizen, Catherine and others were all shocked. At this time, the projection of the arena was completely unviewable under this terrifying strength. Even the broadcast screen of the magic television had continuous interference.
Several figures had already soared into the sky and flew toward the ancient battlefield at the same time.
