Bzz bzz bzz…
The last spirit was the strongest wandering spirit at the peak stage of the Kingdom level. It turned into countless fragments and scattered. Chen Rui did not hesitate, the Sword of Fallen Angel in his hand swung out layers of water ripples, completely destroying and disintegrating the fragments.
This time, the ‘shredded corpse’ was completely cut off from the possibility of resurrection.
After successfully massacring all the wandering spirits, Chen Rui sensed that the nearby cold air seemed to be attracted by something as they gathered and condensed at a high speed in front of him.
Just when he clenched the Sword of Fallen Angel with caution, the ‘gathered’ had turned into ‘solidification’. A faintly radiant object appeared in front of him.
When Chen Rui waved his hand, the thing flew over. It was a finger-sized crystal. Although it was not large, it exuded an incredible power breath. What surprised Chen Rui was that this breath actually contained incomparably pure Kingdom level law power.
“Law fragment?” Chen Rui thought of what Earth Elemental King mentioned. After a super powerhouse was completely annihilated, the most quintessential law might remain and solidify into a law fragment.
This kind of law fragment was generally formed after the annihilation of the kingdomized or Demi-God powerhouse, and it contained the purest law power comprehended in life. The law fragment was actually the initial rudiment of the future ‘Godhood’ or ‘Pseudo-Godhood’.
The law fragment was an extremely rare treasure. It could help trainers who did not have the law to comprehend the law as soon as possible, which was equivalent to a shortcut to the Kingdom level. However, this kind of trainer who relied on the fusion of law fragments to enter the super-level would have much slower progress after entering the super-level than the trainers who comprehended the law personally unless he could find another way or obtain a real big realization. Furthermore, the difficulty of breaking through the bottleneck would be doubled.
In addition, the law fragment was also the best ‘nutrient’ for ordinary super powerhouses, which could absorb the ultimate pure law power and enrich one’s own law foundation. Although this kind of ‘quantitative change’ was not comparable to ’qualitative change’, it was also an extremely precious supplement. Especially after Chen Rui broke through to the [Red Pole Star Emperor], he had fully understood the importance of ‘quantitative change’ and foundation accumulation.
“It’s an unexpected gain! With the law fragment, Athena, Isabella and the others will be able to step into the super-level much faster, then their lifespans will be greatly extended.”
Chen Rui showed joy. Although the law fragment was precious, the first thing he thought of was not himself but Athena and the others.
Zola and Catherine had already stepped into the Kingdom level, and Shea had advanced from the intermediate stage of the Demon Overlord to the peak stage of the Demon Overlord, but due to the shallow foundation and busy empire affairs, her usual training time was limited, so stepping into Kingdom was quite difficult. Isabella was just at the early stage of the Demon Overlord while Athena and Kia were even weaker. Athena was at the Demon Emperor, and Kia was only at the peak stage of the Great Demon King.
The difference in strength also meant a huge difference in lifespan. This difference could not be narrowed by external factors such as longevity potion. The lifespan of ordinary demons was 200-500 years, and the lifespan of royal families was relatively longer. After the middle level (Demon King, Great Demon King), the lifespan would be extended by about half, and after entering the upper level (Demon Emperor, Demon Overlord), it would be doubled or more. Generally speaking, a Demon Overlord powerhouse’s lifespan was at least 1,000- 2,000 years.
After stepping into the Kingdom level, the trainer could absorb the natural strength to replenish energy, and he did not have to completely rely on food to sustain life. His vitality was also greatly enhanced by the force of nature and law, and his lifespan would be extended by 10 times. After reaching Demi-God or Pseudo-God, this ratio would increase significantly.
Chen Rui was most worried about the woman he loved dying in his arms because their lifespan was exhausted. For this reason, he would rather shorten his lifespan. Now that he had a law fragment, he saw the hope that Athena and others would have a greatly extended lifespan.
The more law fragments there are, the greater the chance of breaking through to the kingdom. There are 5 people: Athena, Isabella, Shea, Kia, plus friends such as Delia, Krobelus, Medilu, and so on. 1 law fragment is not enough. With that, Chen Rui made a decision to hunt down wandering spirits and get more law fragments while looking for Tiffany!
Time flies. In the blink of an eye, 3 days had passed, and the medusa powerhouse, Keressa, who had been recuperating and recovering, slowly stood up with a cold murderous intent in her eyes.
It had been 3 days. Among the 2 people sent to explore the way, Demon Overlord Anriel had returned yesterday while the guy named ‘Richard’ had actually never returned. Judging from her own kingdom imprint, ‘Richard’ didn’t die. However, he hadn’t returned or seemed to be coming back due to the imprint response, so he should have deliberately left the team.
“Hmph! Want to escape? How can you come and leave my team as you wish?” Both of Keressa’s pupils became snake-like pupils. As she waved her hand on her body, a silver scale appeared in her hand. The rune of the previous mark was faintly revealed on the inside. When she squeezed it, the silver scale shattered.
Somewhere in the Ghastly Floating Land, Chen Rui felt his soul tremble. The imprint in his palm glowed brightly before disappearing without a trace. There was a sneer on Chen Rui’s face. The mark is exactly as I expected. It is not only for tracking and coordination functions but also a ‘time bomb’ that can be detonated remotely at any time.
However, he was prepared long ago. Even Sariel’s Evil Pupil was assimilated, not to mention this little Demi-God mark. Shortly after accepting the imprint, he activated [Deep Analysis] and cooperated with the power of [Star Conversion] to absorb the imprint power, leaving only an ‘empty shell to confuse Keressa. Therefore, the so-called ‘explosion’ was no different than a camera flash.
Keressa didn’t know Chen Rui’s methods, and she thought she annihilated ‘Richard’. She sneered, “That Richard tried to escape the team. Now his soul has been completely annihilated! Our team does not need such selfish or cowardly character. Who else wants to leave?”
The last sentence revealed an obvious threat. Everyone looked at each other in dismay, and no one mentioned leaving.
“Madam Keressa, what do we do now?” Thursfield asked flatteringly.
Keressa glanced at Anriel approvingly, “Although ‘Richard”s attempt to escape has already been executed, we still got an important intel. This time, Anriel did a good job. Not only she explored the traces left by those people, but she also drew a detailed map. The kingdom mark on your body has been canceled, and this scale is for you. The scales contain a trace of my kingdom power, which is equivalent to a powerful magic bomb. It can be used for self-defense if necessary.”
Anriel quickly and respectfully took the scales and thanked Keressa.
“We first go to the place that Anriel found, then we follow the traces. We should be able to find the whereabouts of the ‘key’ or ‘gate’ along the way.”
Keressa’s tone was firm and decisive, but she didn’t notice the strange light that flashed in Anriel’s eyes, who turned around.
In the other direction, Chen Rui already had 4 law fragments in his hands. This was the result of his hard work for several days. At this time, the light on the Bloody Ring was darker. He was obviously a lot closer to Tiffany’s location.
There was a heart-shattering cry from the front again. Chen Rui was already familiar with this kind of sound, but this batch of wandering spirits was not small. There were about 1000 of them which made the place look white. They flew toward the island where Chen Rui was located.
Although he couldn’t tell how many super-level wandering spirits there were, judging from Chen Rui’s experience in hunting wandering spirits these days, there were at least 10 at the Kingdom level. It was unknown if there were more powerful Demi-God-level wandering spirits.
Just 2 days ago, Chen Rui encountered Demi-God-level wandering spirits. At that time, there were hundreds of thousands of wandering spirits, and there were 8 Demi-God-level spirits sensed in the [Analytical Eyes]. He simply was not their opponent. If he hadn’t used the [Sneak] technique to hide his figure in time, even escaping would be a problem.
Although there were a lot of wandering spirits in front of him, with the Sword of Fallen Angel and the Wrath King Armor, he should be able to deal with them. Worse comes to worst, he could also activate [Red Pole Star Transformation]. However, there was a certain period of weakness after [Pole Star Transformation], and the skills of the Super System would be frozen for a period of time. It was extremely dangerous, especially in this environment. He must be cautious and not take risks easily.
Chen Rui didn’t activate [Sneak]. Instead, he just restrained his breath and hid behind a huge rock. While thinking of a strategy, he suddenly noticed that the wandering spirits in front of him were agitated. It seemed to have discovered his existence and flew over.
Chen Rui was startled, but he didn’t panic. He flew into the air while quickly equiping the Wrath King Armor and the Sword of Fallen Angel. The power he accumulated initially suddenly rose to the maximum, and there was a berserk and fierce breath in the ghastly cold air.
A huge Scorching Dragon with destructive breath roared out. Wherever it went, the wandering spirits were torn apart, and the huge impact repelled the surrounding wandering spirits. After the Scorching Dragon flew in a large circle, it circled back and collided with Chen Rui.
Scorching Dragon merged with Chen Rui who was covered in a flame. The red light with amazing power submerged into his body and exuded a terrifying pressure. Large cracks appeared on the ground under his feet.
[Scorching Dragon Possession] made Chen Rui’s breath skyrocketed again. The Sword of Fallen Angel in his hand drew a circle of profound sword qi. It was another state of [Water Sword], [Overlapping Sword Qi] , which was derived from the fist power comprehended in the surfy sea.
Different from the kind of ripples that leverage power, this sword energy was a sharp qi like a huge wave, turbulent and surging. Wherever it passed, the weaker wandering spirits were directly turned into flying ashes.
The [Analytical Eyes] showed that there were 15 wandering spirits at the Kingdom level. Fortunately, there were no wandering spirits of the Demi-God level. The wandering spirits of the Kingdom level were far superior to the Demon Overlord level, especially the regeneration ability. Even with the Sword of Fallen Angel, it would take several slashes to be completely wiped out. With nearly 1,000 Demon Overlord-level wandering spirits, even after Chen Rui activated [Scorching Dragon Possession], he still felt a huge pressure. He fought while moving. Combined with the shifting power, he avoided the greater ones and swiftly massacred the weaker wandering spirits while moving.
When the massacre reached the climax, the Sword of Fallen Angel actually launched out of Chen Rui’s hand. The momentum of this attack was very fierce, piercing through 3 wandering spirits consecutively before flying back to his hand.
[Sword Control]——Doubles damage. The sword can be controlled within the effective range away from the body and launched various attacks.
Chen Rui shifted to a distance in an instant as he glanced at the long sword lightly. There was blood on the tip of the sword.
Wandering spirits had no blood.
An astonished voice sounded in front, “You… you actually see through my stealth talent!”
TL: Who is that? Anriel or someone else? Is Anriel setting Keressa up?
