As A Cardinal, I Don’t Do Overtime - Chapter 131: The Demon who Abides by the Contract
Chapter 131: The Demon who Abides by the Contract
“Don’t worry, I will fulfill the contract. But as for the sacrifice, I think you are very suitable.”
Upon hearing the demon’s words, Morris’s pupils instantly enlarged.
He wanted to open his mouth and beg for mercy.
But the demon did not give him the slightest chance.
Under everyone’s incredulous gazes.
The demon’s mouth suddenly opened wide.
It was like an abyss that could not be seen.
It directly devoured Morris’s entire body.
This caused everyone to be stunned.
They were all somewhat dumbfounded.
They had personally witnessed how the demon ate people.
This caused endless fear to arise in everyone’s hearts.
The sound of chewing rang out.
Morris’s enormous body was instantly devoured by the demon’s gigantic mouth.
Suddenly, a voice that penetrated deep into their soul, sounded in everyone’s hearts.
It was a scream.
They were absolutely sure!
“He couldn’t just eat General Morris’s body, but even ate General Morris’s soul!”
The werewolves shouted.
At this moment, they finally knew.
This demon didn’t just eat bodies, he also devoured souls.
Extreme fear arose in their hearts.
At this moment, the werewolves could not think to resist.
This was their most practical thought at this moment!
And at the back of the werewolf army,
Zach, who had already seen how bad the situation was, left this place early.
At the same time, he thought of the elder’s meaningful hint.
He rejoiced in his heart.
If he hadn’t given the scroll to Morris…
Then he would have been the one who would be been eaten by the demon!
The werewolves’ morale was greatly scattered, and they had no intention of resisting.
They immediately ran outside of Preston.
They didn’t dare to stay for long.
They were afraid that the demon would catch up and eat them without hesitation.
But the demon who tasted Morris only licked his tongue.
He didn’t care about the werewolves at all.
The food didn’t pique his interest anymore.
And the taste was very bad.
He ate a mouthful of fur.
Of course, the most important thing was gaining the body and soul of someone of Advanced-Level Holy Rank. It was enough for him to kill the Cardinal.
He was a very principled demon.
If he said that he would complete the content of the contract,
He would definitely not go back on his word.
Moreover, humans were much more palatable than those long-haired werewolves.
Thinking of this, his gaze gradually landed on the humans.
A smile appeared on his leather-like face, and he bowed like a gentleman.
He said, “I’m sorry, although my employer is already dead, I do still have to fulfill the content of the contract. This is the basic principle of a businessman.”
The demon spoke to Monn and the others like a normal person.
Then, he looked at his target,
the red-robed cardinal.
With a smile on his face, he said, “So, can you hand over your life and soul to me?”
It was as if he was discussing it with Monn.
However, that smile seemed so evil in everyone’s eyes.
Especially his words, which infuriated everyone.
The human warriors directly stood in front of the demon.
They didn’t retreat at all.
They glared at the demon.
This made the demon stunned for a moment.
What was going on? Weren’t these people scared after seeing what happened to the werewolves?
They actually dared to pick up weapons at me?
This situation made the demon somewhat confused.
He felt that it was somewhat out of his script.
Not being in control of the matter made him very angry.
He was also no longer in the mood to play with them.
The smile on his face also turned into a cold smile.
“I just happened to be a little stuffed. I should move my body a little.”
As he said this, the demon shook the joints on his body.
A clear sound resounded throughout the entire space.
The Holy Knights instantly felt as if they were facing a great enemy.
Ace’s expression was solemn.
She had clearly seen the strength of the demon just now.
Even a werewolf of Advanced-Level Holy Rank was unable to block his attack.
If it were her, she would probably be in an even more miserable state.
Now that the demon had turned to target them, the pressure instantly increased.
Monn looked at the demon and felt Elendil’s heartbeat in his hands.
On Elendil’s body, Monn only felt excitement.
It was as if he saw a prey.
This situation was one where Monn had the confidence to face this demon.
Therefore, when a demon appeared, or even displayed his powerful strength,
Monn was very calm.
Moreover, he had other trump cards.
Which was the second ability of the Angel’s Horn.
Although it was only a projection of the Angel Army…
Since it was in the Heavenly Realm, the strength of those angels was at least at the level of True Gods.
Even if it were just a projection, with the combined strength of the Angels, they would definitely be able to defeat the demon, whose strength was only at Demigod-Level.
Of course, even if they couldn’t defeat the demon, Monn could still use the Law of Space to slip away.
Monn was a selfish man from the start.
When he really can’t beat him,
Monn will not hesitate to use the Law of Space.
His sacred power, however, will only take as many as it can.
That’s the best he can do.
Monn would never sacrifice his life here for someone else.
That was just how he was.
Of course, things weren’t that bad now.
The Demon was just of Demigod-level.
Actually, Monn’s strength was still one step away from the Demigod-Level.
However, he didn’t feel any fear towards the Demigod-Level demon.
Coupled with his holy sword, Elendil, which specialized in fighting against evil,
Monn felt even more confident.
If there was anyone here who had full confidence in Monn,
It was probably Pope Elton, who had previously targeted Monn.
He thought that Cardinal Monn had descended from Heaven to carry out a mission.
After all, he was an Angel.
And an Angel who could live in Heaven definitely had at least the strength of a True God.
Even if his strength was affected when he descended to the Human Realm, his strength would be enough.
It should not be a problem to deal with a demon that had not reached the True God-Level yet.
Therefore, he had enough confidence in Monn.
The demon waited for a few seconds, but saw that this group of humans still stood in front of him with no intention of retreating.
The anger in his heart deepened.
The demon’s hand instantly became huge.
It enveloped the top of the Paladins’ heads.
It was like a dark cloud falling.
The Paladins were shocked.
They hurriedly said, “Put the barrier up!”
Hearing the order, the Paladins carried out the order extremely swiftly.
A blue light screen instantly appeared above their heads.
Countless magic patterns flashed with light.
Seeing this scene, the Paladins heaved a sigh of relief.
Even if an Advanced-Level Holy Ranking powerhouse came, their barrier would not be broken so easily.
Otherwise, it would have been broken long ago when they were fighting against the werewolves.
They were still confident about this.
But just as they heaved a sigh of relief…
The sound of something breaking suddenly sounded.
