Although the cold lights were coming fast, Chen Rui was even faster. He appeared in the air like lightning as he drew a circle with his hand. The power rippled out like water ripples, and the cold lights were dispersed immediately.
Chen Rui was now using the disguised face. Although he was only Warrior’s strength on the surface, he could activate his power at will.
Zola glanced at the ground, and the flickering black figures felt that their weight suddenly doubled, and their speed suddenly slowed down. In an instant, they lost their mobility in a powerful gravity.
The strength of those black figures were all at the Demon Overlord levels, and they were considered the top ‘Saint’ in ordinary empires, but unfortunately they had no resistance in front of Zola. The rich and huge spirit power here made Ms. Fairy Dragon interested, so she intended to keep them alive.
The people in the plaza in the distance were obviously also alarmed, and several people rushed toward this side. Before they even saw the opponents’ figure, they were suppressed by [Gravity] and couldn’t move – Chen Rui and Zola had already shifted to the sky above the plaza.
In the center of the plaza was a circular structure similar to an altar, and it was also the source of countless resentment. A figure who looked like a leader was wearing a large black robe, standing in the center of the structure and performing a sacrifice-like ritual.
There were no other people around; no more than 10 people in this secret realm.
The black-robed leader suddenly looked up and saw the 2 people suspended in the air. Chen Rui and Zola also saw the white mask on the black-robed person’s face which only faintly exposed the eyes.
A horrified expression flashed across the black-robed leader’s eyes. He had noticed that someone had broken in before, but he still did not stop the ritual. Unexpectedly, the enemies broke through here so quickly. When the black-robed leader immediately pointed to the ground, the ground near the altar quickly assembled like bumpy building blocks, and columnar objects like cannon towers rose rapidly.
The ‘cannon towers’ radiated countless rays of light intertwined with flames, lightning, and ice of various colors and brilliance, shrouding Zola and Chen Rui in the blink of an eye.
Zola drew a circle with his fingers, and a translucent circular shield appeared around her and Chen Rui,
When the flame hit the light shield, it seemed to have encountered something that was slippery on the water and slid away one after another. This was not a simple defense. As the attack continued, the color of the sliding flames began to change. They were instead controlled by Zola and launched back at the ‘cannon towers’. The ground trembled, and the ‘cannon towers’ were turned into powder.
The black-robed leader was taken aback. These magic columns of elements contained the enormous power of the runes formation in the center of the ruins. Even the super powerhouse would not dare to stand up to it, but they are completely destroyed by the opponent using this incredible method!
This was the 6 elements’ kingdom power; this was Zola.
Chen Rui was amazed at the side. Zola’s ‘retaliating with one’s own skill’ was different from Shura’s strange power. It completely used the understanding of the power of elements’ origin, which was truly a ‘qualitative’ comprehension. In this aspect, Zola had surpassed Chen Rui who controlled the Super System.
The [6 Elements Kingdom] also had many mysteries and ultimate moves, which were not something that could be manifested in ordinary practice. If Chen Rui only used the same level of strength to fight for his life, he might not necessarily be able to beat Zola. Of course, this would never happen.
Zola’s movements were quick. After finishing off the ‘cannon towers’, she blinked. The temperature beside the black-robed leader suddenly dropped, and circles of floating ice crystals appeared as his body began to solidify rapidly.
The black-robed leader’s body suddenly became void, actually ignoring Zola’s freezing power. He instantly escaped from the range of ice crystals. Zola was slightly surprised, and the ice crystal instantly turned into a purple lightning arc which swept toward the black-robed leader.
The black-robed leader shook his robe, and the surrounding space suddenly turned blood red. The purple lightning arc seemed to be stuck in the mud, unable to exert its force, and it gradually dimmed.
Zola flicked a finger, and the dimmed lightning arc turned bright red and exploded.
The entire blood-red space shattered to pieces under the power of the explosion, but the scattered blood-color reassembled into the figure of the black-robed leader. Zola did not expect that the opponent was still unscathed after the explosion. She snorted, and turned 5 fingers lightly. 6 colors of light condensed, and the surrounding air seemed to be completely solidified under the huge element power. This blow must be an earth-shattering killing move.
“Wait a minute.” As Chen Rui’s voice sounded, Zola’s power suddenly stopped. The black-robed leader took the opportunity to turn into a bloody light and fled into the distance like lightning.
Zola glanced back at Chen Rui, and she returned to his side in a flash. At this moment, the figure of the black-robed leader had disappeared without a trace.
“Why? Do you know that person?” Ms. Fairy Dragon asked curiously. The battle just lasted less than a minute. She could be said to have the absolute upper hand, but the black-robed person’s methods were strange and unpredictable. The person was obviously weaker than her, but she could not defeat him no matter what techniques she used.
“I’ll explain it to you in detail later.” There was a reason why Chen Rui didn’t let Zola kill the person. Although it was impossible to estimate the specific strength of the person just now based on his perception, the [Analytical Eyes] had already listed the data of the other party.
Race: Human (soul variant)
Comprehensive Strength Assessment: (D) SS
Physique: SS-(D-), strength: SS-(D-), spirit: SS+(D), speed: SS(D).
[Analysis]: Becloud Eyes, Concealed Body, Blood Sacrifice Soul, Hatred Heart.
This detailed data is exactly the same as someone… the woman in the Shion Palace!
If it was her, why would she be here? Chen Rui couldn’t help but have doubts in his mind.
All of a sudden, a muffled sound appeared from all directions, and those black figures fell to the ground one after another, dissipating into light smoke. They obviously used some kind of suicide method. When these people saw the leader fleeing away, and they could not contend with the enemy, they ended their lives without hesitation, not even leaving their bodies behind.
Black Death Follower? Chen Rui frowned as he slowly descended to the ground, looking at the huge altar. The center of the altar was actually the circular symbol of the cloud. It was dark red, looking very depressed.
This altar was different from what Chen Rui saw in Nightmare Volcano or the Thick Soil Castle underground. It didn’t have that kind of destruction or bloody feeling, but more of the spirit power of ‘resentment’, which seemed to have accumulated over the years and was incomparably vast.
Could it be that this was an ancient battlefield or burial place where many people died? But looking at the ruins, it looks more like a palace?
The ceremony just now was a bit like a real sacrifice.
While thinking about it, Zola suddenly looked around, and Chen Rui also felt that a large number of people were rushing over.
“It’s time to catch a captive.” Chen Rui and Zola looked at each other and saw through each other’s thoughts.
More and more people rushed over. There were actually hundreds of people,
One after another dazzling rays of light lifted into the sky, illuminating the entire plaza as if it were daytime. The momentum of these people was so huge.
In the blink of an eye, Chen Rui and Zola were surrounded by people pouring out from all directions. They were armed with the magic crossbows and carried various weapons on their backs. They had simple and quick movements, which seemed well-trained.
A gray-robed man was particularly outstanding. This man had short black hair, a slender body and a few scars on his cheeks, making his expression even more grim. He held a sword in his left hand and a magic staff in his right.
“It seems that today’s luck is really good. There is such a big harvest as soon as we arrive.” The man pointed at Chen Rui and the 2. “Descendants of sin! You finally showed your vicious figure! 1 minute! Surrender, this is your only way of life. Otherwise, I will represent the light and make a final judgment on you!”
Even without the [Analytical Eyes], Chen Rui could still feel that this man’s strength was only 1 step away from kingdomization, that was, S++. His gaze was fierce with a faint murderous aura. He was obviously experienced in battles.
This kind of strength was nothing to him at all, but in the [Analytical Eyes], there was a data that caught Chen Rui’s attention – [Body of Light Blessing].
Chen Rui found that he seemed to have misunderstood something. At the same time, he was also misunderstood by the other party, so he asked tentatively, “Are you from… the Holy Church?”
“Why bother asking such an obvious fact!” The man sneered, “You should have heard of my Seus’s means, I will never leave you any luck! You still have 40 seconds!”
“Chief Judge Seus!” Chen Rui thought of a familiar name. In the last incident of the Snow Dallet, he had fought against many high-level officials of the Holy Church, but he had never seen this Chief Judge.
Seus was obviously a real combat type. In other words, the butcher knife of the church. He would do anything to eliminate dissidents. The combat power of the judges was far greater from that of the civilian staffs and the ordinary knights. Even the Glorious Swordmaster Parsali was far inferior to Seus in terms of ruthlessness and unscrupulousness toward the enemy.
However, Seus’ strength was only insignificant to Chen Rui. Chen Rui changed his mind and spoke up, “Sir Seus, this is a misunderstanding.”
“30 seconds.” Seus showed a cold and stern smile. He slowly raised his hand, and the surrounding judges all put their fingers on the trigger of the magic crossbows.
Chen Rui sighed and bowed gracefully to Zola, “The most beautiful lady guardian, it seems that I need your help to calm these passionate judges down.”
When Zola blinked, everyone around shuddered in unison. Then, they felt that their hands and feet were stiff as if they were frozen; even Chief Judge Seus was no exception.
Seus was a practitioner of magic and martial arts. He immediately felt the terrifying element power. He was shocked and activated a mark on his wand without hesitation. The mark emitted a strong radiance and turned into a light beam that shone into the sky.
In an instant, another figure appeared in the light beam. It was a man with blond hair and blue robes. His body was glowing in white light, and there were actually 6 pairs of white wings behind him.
Comprehensive Strength Assessment: SSS-
Physique: SSS-, Strength: SSS-, Spirit: SSS, Speed: SSS-.
[Analysis]: Light attribute, water attribute, healing power, sand of time.
Danger level: High.
Unlike Raphael and Camael who were real angels, the person who came should be a human who got the title of angel. Chen Rui gave this kind of person a scientific name, pseudo-angel.
As soon as this pseudo-angel appeared, the cold force experienced by Seus and the others reduced, and their eyes flashed.
The pseudo-angel’s brows furrowed. The cold air that Seus and others received was water element power, and the intensity was obviously only Kingdom level, but he couldn’t completely cancel the effect of the cold air with his own power, which showed that the enemy’s control of the water element was even better than him, a Demi-God specializing in water element!
The pseudo-angel’s eyes immediately looked at Zola. Chen Rui’s ‘Warrior’ ‘ant’ was not given a second glance, but the pseudo-angel didn’t know that this ‘ant’ had the power to destroy all of them.
