The battle continued .
The mages and Gabe gasped at Celestina in disbelief . They swore that they had never imagined this even in their wildest dreams . The powerful Balor Devil was defeated effortlessly as though slaughtering even a pig would be tougher . The clash between Celestina and the Balor Devil lasted for only a few minutes before the Balor Devil eventually fell to her blade . Then, the Balor Devil self-destructed and took away the lives of the devils, burning them into blazing ashes .
Gabe broke out in cold sweat . He had a bad feeling about these people before . He also suspected the possibilities of this situation being conspired by a demon lord . Demons and devils were sworn enemies . It was also possible that his conspiracy was found out by a hidden devil worshiper around him and the devil worshiper had set a trap for him . Besides, he was certain that this young lady wasn’t just an ordinary high-class demon because no matter how powerful high-class demons were, they shouldn’t be able to overwhelm the Balor Devil this way . This was much more than what ordinary high-class demons could do!
Could it be that a certain demon lord is plotting everything?
Gabe’s forehead was filled with beads of cold sweat . If that was the case, he couldn’t possibly win .
If Sir Grazite were to find out, I can’t even imagine the punishment he has for me!
Gabe couldn’t be blamed for having such wild imaginations . Demons were synonymous with conspiracies . As long as there were sightings of a demon on the battlefield, most likely the cause of the battle was started by them . Although this ‘discrimination’ was common, it was the truth that 90 percent of the causes were indeed started by them .
Think! What did I overlook?
Gabe knitted his brows .
Nothing . Everything is going on smoothly . The channel has connected successfully so what is the issue here? Indeed, they managed to defeat a perfect Balor Devil . But I can summon even stronger devils, who are also Sir Grazite’s direct subjects, into battle!
“Come forth, devils! Show your powerful strength and slaughter these people!”
Gabe growled . In an instant, flames splashed and six devils with heads of lions and bodies of humans stepped out from within . Gabe was certain that they were Grazite’s direct subjects—the lion-headed devils .
Their appearance proves that Sir Grazite cares about me .
Gabe raised his arms high, yelling sinister incantations that shook the room constantly . The flames erupted once again and this time, countless devils of different shapes and sizes overflowed the hall like locusts .
Rhode didn’t seem surprised . He swept a look at the holy sword spirits beside him .
“The channel has connected; just a little more, Your Majesty . Grazite’s presence is getting closer, but he is also acting cautiously . If we launch our attacks now, he may break free . ”
Karin said nonchalantly, her right hand pressing the buttons on the hilt as though she were playing a keyboard . The invisible threads expanded like she was a spider controlling and setting up her web in the room . As soon as the spiderweb was complete, no prey trapped by it would have a chance of escaping .
“Good . ”
Rhode nodded, swinging Slaughter to the side and bringing forth a violent gust of wind .
“Celestina will have a hard time dealing with the six lion-headed devils . Canary, care for some warm up?”
“No problem, Rhode . ”
Canary responded with a gentle smile . She stretched out her hand and scorching flames coalesced in her palm, transforming into a razor-sharp, scarlet sword . Judging from its appearance, it didn’t seem too different from the flame blade that the Balor Devil wielded . But after looking closely, one would discover that the scarlet was purer and had a burning scent . At the same time, the green wind element spiraled around her to form a translucent armor-like presence .
The mages exclaimed and stared at Canary in bafflement . They weren’t this agitated when they witnessed Celestina’s double spell casting since demons and devils were experts in that field while humans merely learned and borrowed the strength of spells . Therefore, it wasn’t too surprising that humans weren’t as powerful as demons in terms of spells . If they were envious and jealous of her spells, that would only prove how foolish they were, just like a firefly hoping to shine brighter than the sun .
But Canary was different . She looked just like a human . Besides, she was much younger than the mages, and yet she effortlessly grasped the power of element materialization . Not even the higher-ups of the Mage Tower could achieve this!
Before the mages returned to their senses, Rhode and Canary had darted to the center of the battlefield, leaving a trail of afterimages to the left and right .
At this moment, Celestina was dealing with the six lion-headed devils alone . Even though she had the upper hand for now, she was against six of them, after all . The lion-headed devils were stronger than the Balor Devil in close-combat, and in this hall filled with the aura of purgatory, their battle strength was greatly increased . Not only that, but the other devils were also slowly approaching her . If they were in hell right now, Celestina could summon her subjects for a bloody battle against the devils . But demons hated the aura of purgatory as it gave her immense pressure and she was alone now .
Until Rhode and Canary intervened .
The lethal blade rays slashed the devils like a speedboat ripping through the water . Rhode wielded Slaughter, the steel chains binding his arm striking out and penetrating the devils who pounced on him . He brandished the scarlet sword and brought forth a blinding azure blade ray . In an instant, streams of blood sprang up as a dozen devils were annihilated mercilessly . He burst forward, aiming his blade at a lion-headed devil who brandished its dagger at him . At this moment, the lion-headed devil’s eyes glinted and a mysterious, illusory fog instantly enfolded Rhode, attempting to rip his heart and send him into the eternal realms of illusion . But what responded to it was a slashing of a blade from above .
The lion-headed devil raised its dagger hurriedly to deflect the blade . Even though lion-headed devils were strong in close-combat, it was impossible to count on demons or devils to fight fairly in battles . The lion-headed devils loved using their unique skills to throw enemies into the realms of illusion, before killing them in a single slash . Perhaps first timers against them would fall into their traps, but Rhode was more than experienced .
Rhode swiftly repositioned his blade and slashed it from the left . In the blink of an eye, three shadow clones dashed out from his body and encircled the lion-headed devil . Before the lion-headed devil reacted, a lethal blade from the back had cut off its escape, puncturing through its tough back as though slicing an apple . Then, the three shadow clones brandished their blades at it simultaneously . Dazzling radiances instantly erupted, eradicating the devils who pounced on them . The lion-headed devil instinctively dodged . It raised its arms and coalesced a ball of dark energy in its hands, shining even brighter .
But in the next moment, scarlet flames and green whirlwind engulfed everything .
