Chen Rui quickly returned this problematic item back to Lennon and shook his head, “I acknowledge your kindness, but I really have no use of this thing.” Are you kidding me? Using such a thing isn’t just clearly showing that I’m bad at that thing?
As a pure virgin that lives two lives, how can I be questioned in such regard?
Lennon didn’t reach out to take it, but he sighed and said, “The things that I gifted are like women that I’ve hooked up with, I will never take them back. If you want to ignore my kindness, just throw it away. ”
Chen Rui’s hand was stagnant for a moment. It wasn’t clear whether this guy was a friend or a foe. Unfortunately, Lennon’s strength was terribly strong, so Chen Rui couldn’t afford to offend him for the time being. He had to wear the ring back on his finger, feeling extremely awkward.
Lennon grinned and patted Chen Rui’s shoulder as if they were close, “That’s right. We’re all men. Only those that are not lustful are abnormal. It’s boring to act modestly. You don’t have to thank me too much. Just remember to say a few good words in front of Athena later.”
Who wants to thank you? Chen Rui looked at Lennon’s expression of “everyone man will understand it”, and he was speechless.
At that time, the battle between Athena and Culia had reached the climax. Athena’s combat experience was extremely rich. Under the “assisted training” with someone of the same level, her strength of middle-stage Higher Demon became increasingly skillful. The effect of the Eternal black potions also manifested further; she felt like she had endless strength.
In contrast, Culia was more passive. Previously, his overall strength was slightly better than Athena’s and the situation was still under control. Unexpectedly, his opponent’s strength was getting greater as the battle went. Besides, he was holding back because of Athena’s identity and his superior’s order. He felt restraint; he was actually slowly being suppressed.
At that time, Athena shouted and a clear metal clashing sound rang. Culia’s figure staggered backward; the scythe in his hand was actually split into two.
Athena’s greatsword wasn’t some amazing legendary magical weapons, but it was at least better than Culia’s scythe. The root cause of this effect was her understanding of swordsmanship was advanced into the skill of <Metal Slash>!
However, Culia wasn’t astonished for his cut weapon. Instead, he threw away the doubts and threw his broken weapon away. He said coldly, “I admit that I’ve underestimated your strength. Now, I’ll let you see my true strength.”
While screaming, Culia’s muscles began to enlarge; his entire figure seemed to increase by one cloth size. Even his clothes and armor were burst. The body’s demonic fire didn’t increase but decreased; they gradually retracted into the body. His skin revealed a layer of red light that was shimmering as if the flame was burning inside the body.
Athena wasn’t afraid. Her body flashed, teleported to the back of Culia and attacked with her greatsword. Culia didn’t avoid, but he focused his power at his back. The greatsword was like clashing into metal as it was sparking when it hit Culia’s back.
Culia’s body shook a little. There was an obvious white mark on the damaged part. However, it gradually disappeared as if nothing happened.
Chen Rui was shocked as he knew Athena’s swordsmanship and strength. He never thought Culia would be invulnerable. Is this a demon-version of possession by god? Or is it a <Golden Bell Cocoon> ?
Athena struck again with <Metal Slash> at max power, but it still couldn’t breakthrough Culia’s sturdy skin defense. Although <Metal Slash> was most effective against metal weapons, its damage was still considerable. Now, it actually couldn’t penetrate Culia’s sturdy body defense.
While she was still shocked, Culia had already counterattacked; his speed was even faster than before. In a hurry, she could only block with her sword.
“Poom!” Athena felt a strong force from the sword, and it directly hit the body through the greatsword. She couldn’t help but forced backward for a few meters; her feet dragged a few deep lines on the ground.
After Culia “transformed”, not only his defense was crazy, but his strength and speed also improved a lot.
“My sturdy demonic body is perfect; you have no chance of winning.” Culia’s voice sounded, “Athena, I can let you go, but I must take this human with me! If you dare to stop me, even if you’re first general’s daughter, you’ll become a dead corpse!”
“Then.” Athena’s eyes were resolute. The demonic fire on her body blazed greater. “Take him over my dead body!”
It was Chen Rui’s second time hearing that sentence, and his heart trembled. A strange light appeared in Lennon’s eyes; he looked at the human beside deeply. Then, an odd light appeared in his left eye again as he looked at Culia on the battlefield.
Just when Chen Rui couldn’t help but wanted to rush out, Lennon’s casual voice sounded, “Athena, stop playing with him. That so-called perfect demonic body is just a defense trick that uses special power to hide the demonic fire’s power within the muscles. It’s either you change your weapon into a legendary magical weapon or find out the weakest point of his demonic body to attack. It’s usually under the armpit or the crotch. Just concentrate your attacks on those parts.”
Athena’s eyes lit up, and her sword’s vigor changed. She began to focus her attacks on these two parts. Athena, who entered the battle form, didn’t hesitate or feel embarrassed. Regardless of what the critical part was, she would attack as long as she could defeat the enemy!
Culia didn’t think that Lennon could expose his weakness with a few sentences. At once, he was suppressed and suddenly fell into a passive state. He hated the busybody guy to the extreme; he yelled furiously.
“I dare to bet with you. No! I won’t bet you with you! What I meant was, I’m sure this guy will come to us later. Do you want me to fend him off?” Lennon was actually asking Chen Rui.
“Actually, I’m a timid person, and I’m afraid of seeing blood.” Chen Rui thought quickly and shook his head, “We humans have a saying. If revenge breeds revenge, will there ever be an end to it? Let’s just give him a chance to repent.” “In fact, I’m also a pure person. I’m only using my body to save some frustrated beauties due to kindness.” Lennon looked at him strangely, “Can your last sentence be interpreted as keeping him alive for now is better?”
Chen Rui shrugged and replied, “The same question will have a different conclusion based on the different perspectives or angles of different people. Thus, we humans have another saying that the benevolent people see benevolence and the wise see wisdom.”
“That’s a nice phrase.” Lennon laughed, “So, you’re afraid of seeing blood, and I’m also very pure; I can help you. Remember to help me later. ”
Surely, as Lennon said, Culia slowly moved the battle toward this side. After counting the distance and taking advantage of Athena’s <Teleportation> cooldown, he suddenly teleported away from Athena and appeared before Chen Rui and Lennon with his big hand grabbing toward Chen Rui.
Culia’s main objective today was the human mining officer.
Lennon was just yawning; lights were fleeting in his languid eyes. In the blink of an eye, Culia’s huge body flew out for no reason and fell into the group of bandits. The bandits were like dominos and fell one after another.
Culia’s enlarged body instantly returned to its original state. The “perfect” transformation disappeared without a trace. His whole body seemed to have broken apart, and he actually didn’t even have the strength to climb up. His eyes were full of shock.
Culia always thought that Lennon’s strength was below him. Now, he finally witnessed the true strength of his opponent; he finally understood why the leader had always been wooing this languid guy. With this level of strength, let alone him, even Barnacle had to respect him… – What about our leader? Can our leader defeat this guy?
In the eyes of others, Lennon’s body was only blurred for an instant at his original place and became clear again, as if he never moved at all. Athena who was far away only saw Lennon’s figure moved and he kicked Culia away.
Only Chen Rui saw it the clearest. His heart was even more shocked. At that moment, Culia was kicked at least 7 times. As Lennon was holding back, otherwise, with his fearful strength of the Demon King, he could take Culia’s live with one kick.
The war in this world was different from what Chen Rui knew before. It wasn’t that the more people one had, the stronger one was. Personal strength was sometimes enough to control the dynamic of the whole battle, especially in small-scale battles. Now that Culia was defeated, even if there were hundreds of bandits, they couldn’t resist Lennon or Athena. At that moment, they dared not to stay, so they carried Culia and escaped.
The miners cheered as they had been bullied by the Red Devils, but now they were finally proud of it. In the eyes of the miners, Athena was undoubtedly the biggest hero who defeated Culia. Lennon also contributed by reminding. As for the human mining officer, although he didn’t do much, his courage to stand up for the miners was admirable.
Soon, Gade organized the miners to resume their usual work. Although Athena knew that Lennon repelled Culia, she still looked at him with unfriendly eyes.
Lennon said with a bitter smile, “Athena, we haven’t seen each other for 3 years. We’re reuniting as old friends, you don’t have to show me that face right?”
Athena said coldly, “I have few friends, but none of them are called Lennon.”
Lennon scratched his head in embarrassment, “Why would I use my real name in front of these guys. I am Roman.”
“Roman? Don’t you change your name as you change a location?” Athena still wasn’t friendly. “Even if you’re Roman, I don’t remember having such a friend.”
Lennon, who was now officially renamed as Rowan, looked at Chen Rui for help. Unfortunately, Chen Rui seemed to not notice. He took a towel from his space bracelet and handed it to Athena to wipe her sweat. Roman was obviously Athena’s acquaintance, and he probably had some weakness in Athena’s hands, so Chen Rui decided to enjoy the drama first.
Roman had no choice but to smile awkwardly. “Athena, sorry.”
“You’re not sorry to me!” Athena was quite agitated, “Who left the Warlock Fortress without saying a word? When Delia was forced to go back to the Dark Shadow Empire, where were you asshole? Do you know how many days Delia cried?”
“Gulp. Gulp.” Roman didn’t answer; he was just downing the alcohol. In the blink of an eye, the full bottle of alcohol was bottomed. He threw the bottle away and suddenly smiled while saying, “Athena, you don’t understand the matter between a man and a woman, especially the matter between me and Delia.”
“What do I not understand?”
Athena was about to get angry, Chen Rui said, “Athena, are the prey that you hunted still here?”
“It’s all in the bracelet.” Athena nodded, “Do you want to distribute it now?”
“Take them to Gade first. Don’t forget that we still have important things to do.” Chen Rui saw Roman repeatedly gesturing Chen Rui with his eyes. Thinking that this guy did help him just now, so he finally helped Roman to get out of the situation.
Roman should be someone with stories. Besides, only the two involved were the clearest in a relationship between a man and a woman. Outsiders, even the best friends, couldn’t truly understand.
