Creation, like destruction, were the 2 most fundamental principles of the universe, and they were also 2 completely opposite laws.
By chance, Chen Rui got the complete destruction origin in the 3 silver boxes. The silver boxes were not the only way to comprehend the true origin, but the Book of Destruction in the silver box was definitely 1 of the best shortcuts.
The power of the Abyss also sourced from the destruction’s origin. Just like 1,000 readers could have 1,000 Hamlets in their hearts, different people have different comprehension of the same destruction origin, so the forms expressed were naturally different.
For example, Chen Rui and Python both had destruction origins, but with completely different powers and attacks, not to mention Quilliana. However, looking at things from another angle, no matter what form of destruction origin, the ultimate ‘destruction’ was the same.
The same goes for ‘creation’.
In the memory of Chen Rui’s previous life, there was a profound old saying, the ultimate of Yin is the beginning of Yang. He had an enlightenment in a desperate situation back then to use ‘destruction’ to comprehend ‘creation’. This was the exact reason he could make a comeback and completely defeat Shura.
The strength of Shura at that time was far from comparable to the breath of the Abyss in front of him, but the current Chen Rui was not the same Chen Rui that he used to be. After stopping the [Star Devouring], there was a flash of redness in his eyes. He had merged with Shura’s body of destruction. The power of the destruction origin emanating from the Tree of Nature was immediately assimilated and absorbed, and its power was greatly weakened.
Stars began to appear around Chen Rui’s body as he activated [Red Pole Star Kingdom]. He stretched out his palm and slowly extended toward the sealed part. The hostility of the resistance became more and more intense. Even with the characteristics of the body of destruction, tiny cracks began to appear on the star armor around the arm at a speed visible to the naked eye under the huge pressure.
Chen Rui seemed to be ignorant of these. He activated the [Analytical Eyes] and concentrated all his mind on the crystal ‘leaf’ that light was already dim.
In the [Deep Analysis], this was also the ‘heart’ of the Abyss’ breeding nest, an opening to another ‘plane’. Terrifying power was constantly pouring out from afar, constantly scouring the seal of the Leaf of Nature. The crack was also expanding bit by bit.
A ray of light appeared in Chen Rui’s hand facing the seal. This was the activation of the origin of destruction in Shura’s destruction body state. This ray of light and the surrounding destructive power eliminated each other. Although it was weak, it didn’t get canceled off.
The ray of light was constantly changing. Sometimes quick, sometimes slow. The shape of the light was also changing accordingly. The star armor on Chen Rui’s body had been severely cracked, and the fragments were constantly peeling off. Before they hit the ground, they turned into powder under a powerful destructive force.
Even the body of the destruction was not completely immune to damage. The parts of flesh without armor were annihilated little by little, which was shocking. The stars in [Pole Star Kingdom] shattered, and some even exploded and dimmed down. However, Chen Rui didn’t step back or make extra defenses. He was just immersed in comprehension.
In front of the crystal ball, the elves, who were cheering for Chen Rui to defeat the abyss army, didn’t know what happened specifically. They only knew that Chen Rui should be trying to seal it back. Seeing the shattered armor and the terrifying scars on his body, they knew he encountered a great danger, so they all looked nervous.
What Chen Rui was doing now was step by step simulating the absolutely opposite power according to his own and the abyss’ destruction origin with the help of [Deep Analysis]. He also integrated some previous comprehension of the creation origin in order to understand the mystery of ‘creation’. This ‘ultimate of Yin is the beginning of Yang’ approach was unheard of, and it was extremely risky.
One after another planets of [Pole Star Kingdom] had been destroyed. The planets exploded directly, emitting the last dazzling light. After death, they might become a black hole or a white dwarf. [Pole Star Kingdom] was actually the projection of the solar system in the Super System. The solar system didn’t get destructed as the projection. Even so, it also proved how terrifying the destructive power Chen Rui endured.
Chen Rui didn’t flinch. On the contrary, the red light in his eyes suddenly disappeared, which was actually canceling the merging state with Shura. This time, the power of the destruction suddenly increased several times.
Whether it was the 3 Abyss Rulers, the 3 archangels, or Satan and Sariel, for the current him, they were all mountains that he could only look up at. They could easily annihilate him. In order to protect the things he holds dear, he would likely face these mountains in the future, so he must master greater powers.
The high mountain that could only be looked up at would one day be looked straight at, or even looked down upon.
At this moment, Chen Rui had no life or death in his heart, no joy or sorrow. He just integrated the persistence of life into that comprehension.
In the destructive breath of the Abyss, the [Pole Star Kingdom] was completely destroyed. The star armor and body on Chen Rui’s body were already on the verge of collapse, and that little light was like a candle in the wind, which could be extinguished at any time.
When Chen Rui’s body and soul were about to be annihilated, time seemed to stop for a moment. The ray of light that had been extinguished suddenly glowed with dazzling brilliance, but the elves in front of the crystal ball witnessed a strange scene.
Time seemed to be going backward. Chen Rui’s body, who was close to annihilation, actually began to recover quickly. The [Pole Star Kingdom] also recovered. In a moment, it had completely recovered. Not only that, compared with before, the brilliance of those planets seemed to be even more… dazzling.
“Creation; it turns out that this is creation.” Chen Rui’s eyes showed emotions and excitement. This time, he not only lightly tapped the power of creation origin, but really grasped it. He had already thoroughly mastered the fragments of creation origin sensed in the Star Tower and Light Divinity Temple. Although it was only a part of origin, he had already grasped a trace of mystery of origin.
After owning the destruction origin, Chen Rui finally grasped another completely opposite mystery of the highest origin. He successfully took the most critical and difficult step to break through in the future.
After grasping a trace of the mystery of creation origin, Chen Rui immediately retreated from that state of ecstasy. With the mutual cancellation of ‘creation’ and ‘destruction’, the surrounding forces temporarily became a vacuum, but the ‘vacuum’ was shrinking rapidly. Chen Rui was very clear that this ‘vacuum’ was only temporary, because his origin power of creation was still very weak. It was like a fire in the snow that would be extinguished quickly after shining for a moment.
At this moment, the Leaf of Nature held by Chen Rui flew up automatically and slowly toward the Tree of Nature. The creation origin power seemed to be buffed thousands of times. The leaf that sealed the Tree of Nature also began to emit light in response, instantly suppressing the breath of the destruction origin.
The 2 Leaf of Nature slowly overlapped, and the phantasms of the Abyss’ breeding nest in the [Deep Analysis] began to shake violently. Their tentacles wriggled painfully while the Flower of Abyss spread all over quickly withered. The eerie red light on the Tree of Nature also weakened gradually.
Chen Rui thought of what Empress Liv had said. His mind moved. A colorful mist appeared in his hand, and 3 types of springwater slowly seeped into the ground. It was the Fountain of Resurrection, the Fountain of Vitality and the Fountain of Vigor.
Fountain of Resurrection was brought to the human world at the request of Python; Fountain of Vitality was a necessary material for making the best aromatic millet wine; Fountain of Vigor was originally in Paglio’s treasure of Silent Night Wetland. It was included in the galaxy garden long ago, so these 3 kinds of springwater happened to be in Chen Rui’s grasp.
As soon as these 3 springwaters seeped into the ground, the 2 Leaf of Nature on the seal suddenly shone with brilliance like the sun, completely merging together. Even the treants in the nearby enchantment became green as if they were much younger. This scene gave the elves an ecstatic expression.
Those 3 springwater should be…
The legendary 3 kinds of springwater. This human actually owns them all! There is hope for the recovery of the holy tree!
Under the power of the 3 springwaters and the Leaf of Nature, the phantasms of the Abyss’ breeding nest let out a shrill scream as the huge body peeled off and disappeared. The initially Abyss-looking lava began to turn into a pool of black water that dried up quickly under the light.
The core in the center of the breeding nest finally couldn’t hold on, and the phantasm of the entire Abyss’ breeding nest vanished, showing the original appearance of the Tree of Nature. This was an old tree that looked withered and decayed to the extreme, but what was certain was that the power of the abyss had finally been completely dissipated!
After getting rid of the plague of the Abyss, the Tree of Nature, which was weak and old, began to glow with strong vitality. The withered branches began to expand.
At this time, the enchantment of the treants had activated. The elves clearly sensed the condition of the Tree of Nature, and they cheered loudly again. Many elves rushed in excitedly.
However, in the next second, the cheers and movements of the elves stopped abruptly.
Seeing that the branches of the Tree of Nature suddenly surged to an exaggerated level, Chen Rui had a bad feeling when he saw the Tree of Nature suddenly burst open, turning into countless particles that scattered in the air.
The Tree of Nature… exploded?
Chen Rui was also stunned by this scene. Didn’t the elf empress say that the 3 kinds of springwater can cure the Tree of Nature eroded by the Abyss? Why did it suddenly disappear?
If the Tree of Nature is destined to be annihilated, why not let the 3 archangels destroy it 20,000 years ago. This time, I took painstaking effort to get rid of the Abyss erosion, but it is useless!
The most important thing was that the Tree of Nature was related to the continuation of the bloodline of the elf tribe. Even if it was the worst plan, the elf tribe had tried other methods for decades or hundreds of years. Now Chen Rui doing this, it was equivalent to directly cutting off their hope for children and grandchildren!
The elves were dumbfounded. Chen Rui, who had turned from a great hero to a genocide sinner, was even more awkward. Now, he regretted taking the damn mission of the legendary prophet more than ever.
At this time, the location of the Tree of Nature’s annihilation emitted a light spot. It projected onto Chen Rui’s body, vaguely in the shape of a leaf.
Chen Rui sensed something started to jump, and it automatically fell into his hand – That damn ‘wood’ card!
This thing is actually not damaged in the previous battle?
This doesn’t seem to be the point…
Huh?! What is that feeling?
Chen Rui sensed that the origin power of creation in the body gradually changed as it became richer and richer. The original traces of creation origin converged into a stream… and it was still growing!
The commotion of the elves also suddenly quieted down. Their eyes were all focused on the human’s hands.
A hint of greenery slowly spread out there, condensing into some kind of sprout.
In an instant, all the elves held their breath.
