The battle between the 2 Demi-Gods was stopped because of a Saint ‘little character’ who seemed to control a Demi-God’s ‘life’ in his hands – At least the little character thought so.
“Don’t move! Otherwise, I’ll die with him!”
Fortunately, Rialdo also had a teacher who was still sober. Shiro appeared by Chen Rui’s side ‘in time’ and really controlled the ‘hostage’.
Although Zola’s advancement to = Demi-God made Shiro feel terrified and no longer had the courage to fight, the hostage-taking was not a head-on battle. If Zola really made an attack, Shiro was completely sure to kill the ‘hostage’ before Zola killed him and Rialdo.
Dursa frowned, and she seemed to be a little unhappy with the move of holding a hostage. The fairy dragon showed some concern, and she stood there without moving (actually, this was her natural expression).
Chen Rui, who was held hostage, looked the most nervous as he said in a trembling voice, “Everyone, calm down first. The cause of today is just a trivial matter, and it has not yet reached the point of death!”
“Trivial matter?” Dursa spoke up while glancing at Shiro, motioning him not to act rashly, “What actually happened?”
Dursa was originally in a closed-door training, and she was alarmed by Zola who collapsed the tower group. She was forced to stop the training and come out to fight Zola inexplicably. Originally, it was supposed to be a sure-win battle. Unexpectedly, Zola broke through and reached the Demi-God level during the battle. With the strong strength of the previous battle, the outcome of this battle was still unpredictable. Coupled with the relationship with the Dragon Valley, Dursa didn’t want to let this farce develop to the point where it got out of hand.
“It’s really just a trivial matter.” Chen Rui said with a look of fear of losing his life, but what he said was not the scene of Zola’s fight with Shiro, but the original cause, which was the conflict with Viswo.
Viswo took a fancy to the 2 daughters of Pabo, the clerk, and he plotted to make Pabo commit suicide after committing a large gambling debt. Then, in the name of debt collection, he wanted to possess Tess and Kili. It was Lild who fought off the fighters he sent. Soon, Viswo personally brought people over. After being taught a lesson by Zola, he actually used a scroll to release the mass destruction magic of [Flame of Hell] among many innocent pedestrians. Fortunately, Lild stopped him. Viswo revealed that the mastermind behind killing Pabo and grabbing the 2 daughters was Rialdo.
Because Lild didn’t want to offend Rialdo, Zola took action to severely punish Viswo and rescued the 2 girls. At this time, Rialdo appeared, aggressively trying to capture the 2 girls and insulting Zola. Zola was furious and taught Rialdo a lesson, which attracted Elf Elder Shiro. Eventually, they fought while chasing to the tower group.
Chen Rui used some skills in the narrative language, highlighting the previous tragic experience of the Pabo family and Rialdo, the mastermind. Then, he emphasized that Rialdo used such words to be disrespectful to a powerhouse like Zola. Although Zola did overdo the punishment, she didn’t kill the half-elf. As for chasing Shiro into the Magician Tower Group, she just wanted an explanation.
Dursa nodded slowly as her gaze looking at Rialdo and Shiro seemed a little more displeased. Judging from Zola’s strength, it is not difficult to kill Shiro even before breaking through Demi-God. The reason why she didn’t kill him must be the same consideration of the relationship between the dragons and the elf tribe – It seems that the one who is at fault is my side.
Shiro’s face changed slightly. He just tried his best to save Rialdo previously, and he didn’t know the reason for what happened. Although Rialdo’s actions were nothing to him as a teacher, the key was not to mess with a super powerhouse like Zola who had a background as great as the Dragon Valley.
Super powerhouses generally followed the Demi-God contract. This ‘contract’ was not a rigid contract like master-servant contract and equality contract, but an ‘industry rule’, that was, super powerhouses must not interfere in the ordinary world.
This ‘intervention’ mainly referred to intervening in kingdoms, empires or racewars and struggles, which would directly affect the pattern of world power. Of course, the super powerhouse also had a ‘hidden rule’ of not arbitrarily slaughtering ordinary people. If they blindly kill those trainers below the super-level or even ordinary people, then where would there be believers and faith power which was an indispensable foundation for advancement and strength enhancement. Even if the Demon Realm had no Demi-God contract, such a thing would not happen generally.
Although the lifespan of a super powerhouse was much higher than that of ordinary people, if the strength was stagnant, he would eventually be exhausted. It was not uncommon for trainers to be unable to climb to a higher realm because of insufficient lifespan. They must continuously train and improve.
After breaking through the highest peak of the ordinary level, ‘Saint’, one had just started on the road of real power. Most of their time was spent on training – Kingdom level powerhouse wanted to comprehend the real kingdom; Demi-God level powerhouse strived to improve kingdom, gain faith, and strive to converge Pseudo-Godhood; Pseudo-God was constantly expanding believers, kingdom, and might. In order to truly embark on the road of god, training was the most important thing. As long as one’s own interests and training were not violated, generally speaking, they would not devote their energy to interfering in meaningless ‘mundane matters’.
However, this did not mean that super powerhouses would be completely constrained. The reason why they didn’t do anything to ordinary people was due to their own identity, but it was nothing to kill a few people who were not pleasing to the eye, especially those who dare to offend their dignity definitely deserved to die.
In today’s incident, Rialdo offended her with initiative. It was already a fluke that he was still alive.
When Zola was talking to Chen Rui, she had already exchanged several glances with him, so she immediately spoke up to Rialdo, “Half-elf, I only ask you this. Are you the mastermind behind Viswo using despicable means to kill the father of the 2 girls and forcefully possessing the 2 girls?”
“That’s it?” Rialdo didn’t expect Zola to not make a fuss about his offense, but brought the topic to Tess and her sister. He couldn’t help but be stunned. He said without thinking, “Yes, Tess is what Viswo wanted. I am just interested in that little girl.”
“Judging by your tone, this kind of thing is normal?” The one who spoke was Chen Rui who was controlled by Rialdo.
“Of course, those are just lowly humans. It’s their honor to be favored by me, even if they die!” When Rialdo and Chen Rui’s eyes met, he couldn’t help but say what was in his mind. In fact, because of Zola’s strength, he had subconsciously transferred his hatred to Chen Rui, a ‘weak’ human. There was a hint of resentment in his words.
“The mere human ants are not worth causing a dispute between the dragons and the elf tribe. If it is for this reason, it is not worth it…” Shiro overbearingly added. In the elf elder’s view, the dragons and the elf tribes were all arrogant races, so it was not worth fighting for that kind of despicable existence. This sentence should resonate with the other party.
It was best to resolve this grievance peacefully. After all, there was such a powerful enemy, who would cause both he and Rialdo to be restless.
“A mere human?” Chen Rui suddenly realized, “No wonder you actually exploded the white magician tower and the people inside in order to stop Zola from chasing.”
Dursa’s face had already turned unsightly. Hearing this sentence, the female elf magician raised her slender eyebrows, “Explode the white tower? Shiro, what’s going on?”
Shiro hesitated for a moment, and he briefly recounted the explosion of the white tower in the previous pursuit. Dursa was obviously annoyed by Shiro’s actions, but since the enemy was here, she couldn’t reprimand him now. It was just that she frowned even more.
“Lowly humans? They can be killed at will?” Chen Rui glanced at Rialdo, who was holding his throat, seemingly forgetting that he was still a ‘hostage’, “The elf tribe in my impression is arrogant, but loves peace and life and advocates nature. I didn’t expect there to be people like you!”
Shiro sneered disdainfully. If it wasn’t that he was fearful of Zola, this kind of ant would have been wiped out by the flick of his fingers.
When Rialdo and Chen Rui’s eyes met, his soul seemed to tremble. He couldn’t help but get emotional as he shouted, “Who is that little girl! The humans killed by me are enough to be stacked into a magician tower! Humans are all dirty and despicable! If it wasn’t for this filthy bloodline, I should have been the noblest and purest elf! I hate humans! Only by brutally killing those filthy humans can my anger be quelled! Damn dragon woman, you actually destroyed my most important organ; I must take revenge! I will cut off this human flesh piece by piece!”
This was originally a secret hidden in Rialdo’s mind. He blurted it out when he met Chen Rui’s eyes that contained the power of the Evil Pupil. Shiro didn’t expect Rialdo to make such remarks, especially the last 2 sentences were quite disrespectful to Zola. He couldn’t help but be startled, “Rialdo!”
“I hate you too! My teacher! My… father!” Rialdo seemed to have lost his mind as he revealed a bigger secret with a hateful face.
Dursa was shocked. I did not expect Rialdo to actually be Shiro’s son!
“Shut up!” Shiro didn’t expect Rialto to actually divulge all these secrets like crazy at this time.
Rialdo was getting close to madness and he roared desperately, “I don’t care! Why did you let that lowly woman give birth to me? She’s just one of your playthings! Why am I not a real elf!”
“I don’t know what kind of concept your father has instilled in you since you were young, and I don’t know what kind of distortion your character has been subjected to as a half-elf… I know other half-elves who have been unfairly discriminated against, so they will not pass this discrimination on to other people. On the contrary, they love life more than the average person.”
Chen Rui’s voice was very calm, but with an indescribable momentum, “I may be weak, poor, low-status, ugly, but in front of life, you and I are equal. I’m not despicable, and you are not noble. When you think you are noble, you are in fact the most despicable existence.”
“Go to hell, despicable bastard!” Rialdo’s anger rose to the limit uncontrollably, and he burst his power desperately to bring Chen Rui to death. Before he could exert his strength, his forehead suddenly became cold, and his body suddenly trembled before it burst open.
A finger; Chen Rui’s finger.
“Rialdo!” Shiro yelled, unable to believe his eyes. His son was actually killed by that despicable human ant!
The elf elder was almost maniac at this moment. Although Rialdo was half-elf, he was his only descendant!
