A figure appeared in the space in front of him. This was a young woman with blue hair and blue eyes. She had an excellent appearance and figure, but compared with Athena and Kia, there was still a certain distance. Only those eyes were particularly moving, full of soul-stirring amorous feelings with every blink. She was covering her shoulder with 1 hand.
“This sword actually damaged my soul! Could that sword…” Before the woman could finish speaking, she was already surrounded by the wandering spirits.
The target of the wandering spirits was all beings other than themselves. Previously, this woman had a special stealth talent that hid her figure, so she was not discovered by wandering spirits. Now that her stealth talent was exposed, she would naturally be attacked by the wandering spirits.
Chen Rui sneered without saying a word. The Sword of Fallen Angel in his hand burst out with all his strength, slashing a wandering spirit of the peak stage of the Kingdom level into half. It was not the first time he had hunted wandering spirits. He felt something was amiss when he was unexpectedly discovered by the wandering spirits previously. The strongest of these wandering spirits was only at the peak stage of the Kingdom level. At that distance, even if he didn’t activate [Sneak], his hiding place should not be exposed at all.
Later, when he was fighting with the wandering spirits and shifting, the [Analytical Eyes] unexpectedly showed some information other than wandering spirits, which made him finally understand that it was someone who deliberately brought the wandering spirits to him and wanted to kill him with the hands of the wandering spirits. Perhaps the person was even trying to take advantage when both sides were injured.
This woman was from the Leviathan Royal Family. Her strength was not Demi-God, but the peak stage of the Kingdom level. She must have some kind of remote peeping ability. She had been hiding with her stealth talent. After she noticed Chen Rui’s location, she successfully attracted the wandering spirits over. However, she also didn’t expect that Chen Rui would be able to see where she was, deliberately fighting and retreating to her vicinity before he unexpectedly attacked her with [Sword Control].
This blow condensed the powerful strength of [Scorching Dragon Possession] which was originally aimed at her forehead, but unfortunately, the woman was also very alert. She dodged at the critical moment. Only her shoulder was injured. However, the woman’s stealth technique could no longer be used for the time being, and she had also become the target of wandering spirits.
There was no need to worry about the wandering spirits escaping during the fight because this loss of self-consciousness left only aggressive spirits. Therefore, once they fought, there were only 3 words: Fight to the death.
The Kingdom level wandering spirits that had been slashed into halves were extremely fierce. Despite having been hit several times before, the half bodies still rushed toward Chen Rui.
The lethality of Chen Rui in the [Scorching Dragon Possession] state was greatly enhanced. The Sword of Fallen Angel shone brightly, and countless vast sword qi surged. The halved spirit was turned into hundreds of pieces… In the overlapping turbulent sword qi, their vitality was finally completely cut off.
After a while, a law fragment appeared in the air.
“Law fragment!” The woman blurted out. Despite being surrounded by 4 Kingdom level wandering spirits, she still had the energy to observe this side.
Chen Rui was about to collect it when the wandering spirits of the peak stage of the Kingdom level flew over and launched a berserk attack. All of a sudden, he clearly sensed that there was a soft water element power in his vast sword qi, and it rolled toward the law fragment silently.
When a cold light flashed across Chen Rui’s eyes, the sword intent changed. The vast sword qi emitted by the Sword of Fallen Angel turned into ripples and pushed away all the wandering spirits that approached like a big intangible hand. The next second, the ‘big hand’ wrapped around the soft water element power and squashed the water element power.
During the pull of sword qi, the law fragment was brought to Chen Rui and disappeared in the blink of an eye.
This scene made the woman’s eyes flash with boundless hatred, and her blue eyes suddenly turned into deep black, including the whites and pupils. Generally speaking, only the right eye of the Leviathan Royal Family was the Eye of Incubus, but it was both eyes for this woman. It was an extremely rare talent just like Broc. It’s just that Broc’s strength was not even like the light of a firefly in front of this woman.
The history of the Demon Realm had been long-standing. Putting aside the factors such as massacre and extinction, the lifespan of the super powerhouse of the reclusive powerhouses and geniuses was unknown. If he hadn’t entered the super-level, he would not really touch this level, and he would only meet the ordinary powerhouse level of the initial Demon Emperor Demon Overlord.
The super-level is a new starting point, and there is still a long way to go. Chen Rui had long been aware of this.
After the woman activated the Eye of Incubus, there was no change on the surface. Instead, she was hit by the wandering spirits as she was distracted. She immediately showed a painful expression. Immediately after, countless wandering spirits went into her body. The hot body began to expand rapidly and burst into pieces.
Chen Rui could see clearly that the explosion and shattering were just the water element’s mirror image. It seems that the woman has activated the stealth talent again, and she wants to use the wandering spirits to consume my strength.
No doubt, the wandering spirits who killed the ‘dead’ target immediately turned their attack on Chen Rui.
Chen Rui snorted as his body shifted continuously. The ripples on the sword suddenly became more chilly, and there was a gradually frozen figure in the air in front of him. It was that woman. By right, the Leviathan Royal Family had water element proficiency, so ordinary water element freezing would not work at all. However, this chill was completely different from water element power, and it was also different from the ghastly chill of the Ghastly Floating Land. It was another extreme chill that contained unstoppable destruction power.
Even the intangible soul body of the wandering spirits gradually slowed down, and the weak ones actually turned into ice sculptures, floating in the air.
This woman reacted very quickly. Seeing that her talent for stealth was exposed, she didn’t want to fight more, and she didn’t crave the law fragment. She just wanted to use the strength of the wandering spirits to leave quickly and get rid of this dangerous man. This plan was actually very smart. It could be seen that she belonged to the type of deep scheming but cautious. It’s a pity that Chen Rui saw through her intention at a glance. He activated another means to break her stealth technique again.
That terrifying destructive breath was very difficult to deal with. It not only quickly destroyed her resistance, but also gradually invaded her soul. The black light in the woman’s Eye of Incubus was flourishing, and there were torrent-like fluctuations around her body. The spirit shackles that had the power of the [Soul Shackles] had formed a strange kingdom, but she was still unable to break free from the [Winter Territory] that incorporated the strongest destruction law – No, it should already be called [Winter Kingdom].
Not only that, under the interference of [Winter Kingdom], she could no longer use the same tricks to hide, so she had to deal with the attacking wandering spirits while resisting the freeze.
Chen Rui shook his sword, and countless sword qi containing [Soul Searing] radiated out. The ice sculptures were turned into powder, and the frozen wandering spirits were also annihilated. Under the power of the Sword of Fallen Angel, he killed the surrounding wandering spirits one after another, and he harvested a law fragment again.
Seeing that the wandering spirits around Chen Rui were gradually exhausted, the woman was secretly terrified. She wanted to use this man to hold the wandering spirits for some benefits. She didn’t expect her plan to fail and was even self-defeating, becoming his tool to delay the wandering spirits.
Chen Rui appeared in front of the woman with a shift, and the wandering spirits that approached her were instantly torn into countless pieces by the terrifying sword light. The woman only felt that the destruction energy suddenly became several times stronger, and even her feet began to freeze. She couldn’t help being shocked, and she shouted, “I’m willing to surrender!”
That kind of destructive power immediately stopped. Before Chen Rui could speak, a small black crossbow exuding intense waves appeared in the woman’s hand. Chen Rui didn’t have enough time to dodge. The 3 sharp winds had been accurately nailed into the chest.
This 9-shot crossbow was 1 of the big trump card for that woman. The quality had reached the quasi-artifact.
“Hmph! You want me, Leslie, to surrender?”
The woman’s sneer quickly solidified on her face as she saw that the opponent’s breastplate was only dented with 3 shallow holes; they didn’t penetrate the opponent at all. Then, the holes quickly returned to their original shape as if they had not suffered any damage.
“What?!” This was the first time Leslie encountered such a scene, so she was taken aback. Not to mention an armor, the crossbow can easily penetrate even a shield. What kind of armor is this?
Although surprised, Leslie didn’t stop her hand movements. The little crossbow fired again, firing all the remaining 6 bolts against the face that the armor couldn’t cover.
A big buckler with an ancient and simple pattern suddenly appeared in front of him, replacing the bolts’ target.
“Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!”
This time, not even a small hole was left; the shield was unscathed.
When Leslie saw the big shield, her facial expression suddenly changed, “Demon Shield!”
Leslie was the royal relative of the Illusive Demon Empire back then, so she was no stranger to this shield. In other words, any of the Leviathan Royal Family knew exactly what this shield meant.
The highest artifact of the Leviathan Royal Family, 1 of the 7 artifacts in the Demon Realm, the Demon Shield of the Illusive Demon Shield!
Chen Rui was waiting for the moment when Leslie was distracted. With a flash of red light, 2 chains flew out. The chains exuded a strange flame breath and bound Leslie in a cross shape.
He had long guessed that Leslie would do a sneak attack. The reason he had so many actions was to keep her alive.
The chains seemed to be phantasms, and they soon disappeared into Leslie’s body. After that, Chen Rui didn’t bother Leslie. He used [Winter Kingdom] with the Sword of Fallen Angel to slaughter all the remaining wandering spirits and gained 3 more law fragments.
A total of 5 law fragments were harvested this time. Together with the hunting harvest from the previous few days, there were a total of 9, which was not a small harvest.
Chen Rui put away the law fragments before setting his eyes on Leslie.
Leslie was suspended in the air at this time. The kingdom around her had long since disappeared, and her life was under his control. Her strength seemed to be almost completely imprisoned by these 2 intangible chains. In fact, she struggled with all her might, but as soon as she struggled, there was a terrifying absorption from the chain which actually began to devour her flesh and blood. She was scared witless. Fortunately, as long as she didn’t move, the power of devouring would disappear automatically.
The Shackles of True Flame.
This was a powerful artifact that the 4-winged angel Isyorul of the human world had activated on Chen Rui. It was bestowed by Raphael, 1 of the 3 archangels. If Duoduo hadn’t sacrificed herself to save Chen Rui, the Shackles of True Flame would have almost killed Chen Rui.
Later, it took him 2 years to completely absorb the law of the Shackles of True Flame and turn it into his own strength.
The Shackles of True Flame that Chen Rui activated was not as domineering as it used to be, but it had a stronger restraint ability.
“Leslie?” Chen Rui looked at the silent woman and smiled coldly, “You’re Satan’s subordinate, right?”
TL: Satan’s people are here too?
