“Madam Python, just now… is that guy named Camael an angel?” Chen Rui didn’t encounter any obstacles along the way, but the top of the Holy Light Mountain had strong interference. With his peak stage of the Kingdom-level strength, he was still unable to shift, and his speed was also greatly limited. The more he advanced, the more so.
“Yes, Camael is an 8-winged angel. He is usually quite belligerent, but don’t be fooled by the surface. You have seen his cunning just now. I wanted to kill him while he was careless, but I was noticed by him. He even sacrificed his companions to escape.”
Chen Rui frowned. Although Python is a soul entity, she is a peak stage Pseudo-God after all. Is it so much trouble to get rid of a mere peak stage of the Demi-God?
Python sensed his doubts, “If my body is still here, it’s just a snap of my fingers to solve him, but now I’m a soul entity, plus Camael has a strong defensive talent and space skill which happens to restrain my strength. If we take too much time and strength here, it’s not worth it.”
Chen Rui nodded as he accepted the explanation, and asked, “Those 2 women… Angille and Anchele are also angels?”
“Angille and Anchele are indeed angels, but those 2 women are just super-level human beings bearing the names of the 2 angels Angille and Anchele. The real Anchele or Angille should have perished long ago. Guys like Michael really think that they have become a god? They actually assign a divine servant like this… They are all narcissistic and arrogant guys!”
Angille and Anchele are humans bearing the names of the angels? Isyorul? Ze Hongen?
The real angel has fallen?
Chen Rui vaguely understood something. While asking, he did not stop walking as he quickly moved up the stairs.
The faith power in front was getting stronger and stronger, and it carried a sense of danger. The intangible pressure was also increasing step by step. If Chen Rui had enough time, he could stop and use the abilities such as [Star Devouring] to digest and absorb slowly in order to convert these extremely high concentrations of faith power for his own use.
However, he didn’t have the time at all, so the Holy Light Mountain’s faith power became the most dangerous weapon.
A leaf, a speck of dust, a gust of wind… even the moonlight in the sky, all turned into something deadly.
Shura also encountered this kind of attack where ‘everything in the world is a weapon’, but at that time Shura’s strength did not even reach the Kingdom level, so each step was a struggle. Chen Rui initially thought that with his current strength, he could completely defend or even be immune to this level of attack, but the power of the attack far exceeded his imagination. Even if he had reached the peak stage of the Kingdom level, being in this environment was also like walking on thin ice. If he was a little careless, his body and spirit would be destroyed.
Chen Rui understood a little. This is the power of a rule. No matter how strong it is, as long as I enter this range on the top of the Holy Light Mountain, I will encounter this kind of fatal danger, even a Pseudo-God like Python is no exception. Unless I’m immune due to certain conditions or I completely surpass the ‘rule’ with absolute strength.
Chen Rui tried his best to use all kinds of abilities, and under the guidance and help of Python, he stepped forward step by step despite the ‘barrage’. Gradually, there was a special breath amid the faith power. This breath gave Chen Rui a faint sense of familiarity as if he had felt it before somewhere. It was not because Shura came here last time, but the real feeling from himself. It was just that he couldn’t remember it in a hurry.
“The breath of ‘creation’!” Python was refreshed. Her the pitch couldn’t help but raise a bit. “Quick! Go ahead!”
Chen Rui had only taken a few steps before he stopped abruptly because he had already discovered the abnormality ahead in the [Analytical Eyes] – even though his vision or other senses hadn’t noticed it yet.
Race: Unable to determine!
Comprehensive strength: Unable to determine!
His reaction was correct as Python’s voice sounded immediately afterward, “Stop!”
A figure faintly appeared in front of him. As soon as this figure appeared, all the power of the faith attack suddenly changed as if being pulled by some special strength, then it gradually calmed down.
This calm was only on the surface. Chen Rui could clearly feel that a more terrifying power was constantly accumulating, compressing, and charging. Once it erupted, it must be several times the terrifying power.
The moonlight suddenly brightened a lot, but it wasn’t as dazzling as the sun. It was more crystalline and soft, and the entire moonlight seemed to be attracted by this figure.
This was a near-perfect man dressed in a white robe with no extra lining. His long golden hair was scattered on his shoulders. Although his face was vague, one could feel the incomparably handsome facial features with his mind. It was just flawless.
Chen Rui thought that ‘Arthur’ was already a handsome guy, but in front of this man, he was obviously overshadowed.
The most impressive was the holy temperament exuded from the whole body that was gentle like the rising sun and aloof. It made people feel ashamed involuntarily and had the urge to kneel down and worship at the same time.
This kind of ‘worship’ feeling had never occurred to Chen Rui even when facing Satan or Sariel. He only had a similar feeling when facing those huge ‘corpses’ in the Chaos Realm.
However, compared to the ‘corpses’, which were as vast as a solar system, this man’s temperament was far less. It was more of a superficial ‘sacred’. With Chen Rui’s current understanding of faith power, ‘holy’, ‘aloof’ and ‘worship’ were mostly caused by the ‘coat’ constructed by faith power rather than the inner real quality like those ‘corpses’.
Even so, this man’s momentum and strength were superior to Chen Rui’s now. If it wasn’t for Python’s strength, he would have been defeated by the breath released by the man.
Such strength! Such momentum!
Not the Raphael I’ve seen before, so it should be Gabriel or…
“Michael…” Python’s voice had already sounded in Chen Rui’s mind.
No doubt, is the leader of the 3 archangels, chief archangel, Michael!
“Python?” Michael said as if hearing Python’s voice in Chen Rui’s soul. The voice was thick and gentle, but it implied a dignified solemnity.
“Hmph! Michael! It has been a long long time.” It seemed that the 2 were old acquaintances. Facing Michael, Python knew that she couldn’t hide it, but she still did not break away from Chen Rui’s body.
“You actually gave up your body? Or, you lost it in battle…” Michael’s tone was a little surprised. “So, you invaded this land of highest godfaith to steal the Book of Creation?”
“The land of the highest godfaith?” Python’s voice was filled with unabashed contempt. “A servant who fools god, have you been fooling yourself too long that you even fooled yourself?”
Michael seemed very calm, “I didn’t fool myself. I’m not a god yet, but I’ve just touched a little bit of a threshold to that path.”
“A little threshold? You actually touched it?” Python didn’t laugh at it this time. She was silent for a moment, and sighed. “It seems that after planning and managing the Holy Church for so many years, you have really achieved something. However, touching the threshold does not mean taking that step; you and I are very clear about this.”
“Yes, but no matter what, I have already walked in front of you and Satan.” Michael nodded slightly, “Okay, reminiscence time is over. Next, do you choose to be captured? Or be annihilated in battle?”
“Don’t worry, Sir Chief Archangel, let me explain my purpose first.” Python smiled tenderly and unhurriedly, “I didn’t mean to be hostile to you guys. Otherwise, I wouldn’t choose to go straight ahead like this. This time, I am indeed aiming for the Book of Creation, but not to take it away. Instead, it is to comprehend the full power of creation and see if there is a way to recreate my physical body. If you help me this time, I will owe you a favor. In the future… if something happens, I can stand on your side.”
“‘Help’?” Michael showed a smile, but not the slightest intent, “You fallen one, do you think this word will appear between us?”
“There is no eternal enemy or friend, light and darkness will always coexist. If there is no ‘darkness’, how can ‘light’ be so bright?”
Michael sneered, “Unfortunately, even from the point of view of interests, you don’t have the leverage I need. Moreover, I don’t believe you at all, unless you are willing to surrender to me.”
“Haha!” Python seemed to have heard the funniest thing, “Surrender to you? Michael, do you really think you are a god after stealing some faith?”
“I said, I’m not a god yet, but there is no doubt that I have become the person closest to god.” The breath on Michael’s body gradually changed. His blond hair fluttered, and the faith power that had been suppressed began to show signs of eruption.
Chen Rui could no longer describe the magnitude of this kind of power. Even Satan or Sariel (who might not have unleashed their real power) did not give him such a terrifying sense of oppression.
“I will also give you a choice, get out of the way.” Python’s voice was cold, “Otherwise, die!”
“Such a strange self-confident.” Michael glanced at Chen Rui, then he shook his head, “I can’t think of the reason you have the confidence to compete with me at the Holy Light Mountain. Let alone you are a soul, even if you are in optimum state, you are not my opponent. Do you think this Kingdom level ant can be the key to your escape?”
Python laughed, and Chen Rui’s body was drawn by the laughter. He involuntarily exuded a breath of destruction origin.
“I’m not thinking of ‘escaping’, and he’s not an ant, but… a weapon that can annihilate you, me, and everything.”
Chen Rui was taken aback when he heard this sentence.
“He is a very special body of destruction, and he condenses the complete origin power of the Book of Destruction. This position is quite close to the position of the Book of Creation. As long as I use the secret technique to trigger and detonate the destructive power in this person. An explosion that is several times more than its own origin… You should know what will happen when the powers of complete destruction origin and complete creation origin intertwine.” Python’s crisp laughter sounded. It was very sweet, but it was extremely creepy in Chen Rui’s ears.
Chen Rui finally understood why Python chose him to come to the human world and the Holy Light Mountain.
Michael’s eyes suddenly turned gloomy. Although the strength of this ‘ant’ is weak, he contains an extremely pure destruction law. Is it indeed the complete power of the destruction origin?
Python’s laughter became more charming, and the breath of the destruction origin in Chen Rui suddenly increased dozens of times; even Michael couldn’t help but be surprised.
Destruction and creation were the 2 most earliest origins, and they were also 2 absolutely opposite strengths. Unless there was another power as an intermediary, if the explosion power of the complete origin directly intertwined, it would produce a kind of mutation which would multiply the destructive effect. At that time, everything would be destroyed, then reborn again. The process would be repeated, but the original things would be obliterated.
Michael definitely would not possess that kind of ‘intermediary’ power, so if the power really exploded, even if Michael could escape alive, the Holy Light Mountain and even the entire White Cliff would be destroyed. His efforts over the years would also be destroyed.
If the true Book of Creation and the Book of Destruction were directly intertwined, then the whole world, the whole plane would be…
Chen Rui wanted to break free of Python’s soul power or suppress the power of destruction origin, but he felt that his body was completely out of his control, like a puppet being pulled on strings. He was shocked and angry, “Madam Python, you…”
“Are you surprised? Do you think after I signed a master-subordinate contract with you, I will be completely at ease? Unfortunately, I’m not Sariel.” Python’s voice was so gentle that it gave Chen Rui goosebumps, “Although your strength is low, I have not underestimated you. How can someone who can get rid of Sariel’s control be such a simple character? Do you remember when you were at Camael’s place before? That wonderful fusion of souls… At that time, I was really in control of you .”
Chen Rui suddenly realized that the reason why Python fused her soul to control his body was not to deal with Camael, but to use Camael, the Demi-God whom Chen Rui ‘could not defeat’ to achieve real control over him. No wonder she put in so much effort, but she still let Camael escape. Even without Camael, in the face of a powerful enemy like Michael, Python will take advantage to perform ‘fusion’.
The signing of the master-subordinate contract appeared to be Chen Rui’s luring plan succeeded, but in fact, he himself was deceived and let down his guard. Now that he thought about it, the reason Python carefully taught him the mystery of destruction origin law in the Demon Realm was also for this scene.
With such a mind and means, this woman could only be described as ‘terrifying’. Even Chen Rui, who had been extra careful, was still tricked.
“What method did you use?” Chen Rui said furiously.
“In addition to soul fusion, there is also a poison that combines destruction law and might. I named it ‘affection’. For a stupid guy like you, whether it is family, friendship or love, it is the biggest shackle and also the most powerful poison. Therefore, even if you have extraordinary ability and wisdom, you will be easily controlled by me.”
TL: Can Chen Rui still cancel the contract in time to get back his control?
