Chapter 587 Eli's Retaliation
"Filthy fools!!" Lord Raven gritted his teeth and used a lot of his power to resist the sudden attack.
He did not expect that someone from the dying army would be able to release such an attack that could make him put his guards up.
Even so, he was still unscathed when the attack finished. Not thinking too much, he looked at who the courageous fools were.
The light continued to fade and the dust settled. Everyone on the battlefield also came back to their senses.
Because of the explosion, all eyes were directed in a certain direction. The demonoid army looked at their supreme leader warily while the righteous side looked at them anxiously.
"Whoever it was… Oh heavens, please let them succeed." High Priest Enoch could not help but pray aloud.
The others heard his words and also prayed the same thing silently in their hearts.
After all, before the sudden interruption, their army was already on its last leg. What is left for them is to die in this very place.
Not long after, their prayers have been answered.
Standing in front of them were two people whom they knew very well.
"E-eli?" Kayden looked in Eli and Leon's direction in a daze. However, something in his heart stirred. There seemed to be something different about Eli this time.
It was both familiar yet mystifying at the same time.
Then Kayden looked at Leon and was equally surprised. Leon's countenance and appearance also changed.
The couple looked formidable at the moment and everyone could not help but hold their breaths in hopes that the two could win the losing battle.
"So it's the two of you…" Lord Raven looked at Leon and Eli warily.
This time, he did not dare to mock or taunt them, that was because he felt the strength of their attacks earlier, and it was something that could really affect him.
He could not yet pinpoint it but he was sure that they had a kind of strength that would make it difficult for him.
However, he knew that there was only a certain extent of heavenly power the two could yield on the surface of this earth.
The heavenly powers are not meant to stay in this world for a reason.
That is because mankind's flesh could not contain the full strength of its powers. Unlike him who had already stayed here for generations.
He had repeatedly tried to create an appropriate vessel for him to fully manifest his powers on earth and become the strongest being alive.
"Leon, let me do something first…" Eli looked at Leon for a moment and communicated softly.
Though Eli did not understand, he felt that whatever Eli would do is something that would benefit the two of them, and so he nodded with hesitation.
Eli lifted her hands, then a mysterious book appeared.
Leon was already familiar with this book, but the others on the battlefield weren't. Even so, they could not help but feel a deep sense of reverence upon laying their eyes on the book.
Lord Raven on the other hand was filled with shock and trembling. "You! How did you manage to have that!"
He could not believe what he just saw! The young woman was actually wielding a portion of the book of knowledge!
While it was not the entire book of knowledge that was in the heavenly realm, it was still a part of it!
That meant that it also contained a portion of the power of the heavens in her hands!
After thinking about this, Lord Raven laughed. This time, his usual two voices became one. But it was eerily different from the other layer of the voice.
"If you know how to use your brain, you will stop at this moment and hand me that thing… young woman." Lord Raven's mysterious voice said with a hint of pure threat.
"Too bad, this isn't for you, fallen Birsha," Eli replied coldly.
Lord Raven's eyes flickered, then he chuckled with a sinister look on his face, "Hah… the Overseer must have damaged his mind and sent over a foolish young child to deal with me isn't it?"
Eli did not answer, instead, she slowly prepared her body to launch an attack.
Lord Raven saw her attitude and became more annoyed, "Stupid!" He bellowed as he released a dense wave of his purple-colored power to attack Eli who was now charging at him without hesitation.
Leon saw Lord Raven's attack morph into pointy blades so he immediately waved his hands to protect Eli's path.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The purple blades exploded as soon as they touched Leon's power. But Eli was not affected at all due to Leon's protection. She just continued to charge and stretched out her hand to reach out on Lord Raven's neck.
"You dare!" Lord Raven looked at Eli as if she was retarded as he immediately met her attack.
Then just before Eli entered Lord Raven's attacking range, the book opened and Eli mouthed the words from it.
"There is no fear of God before his eyes.
For he flatters himself in his own eyes,
When he finds out his iniquity and when he hates it.
The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit;
He has ceased to be wise and to do good.
He devises wickedness on his bed;
He sets himself in a way that is not good;
He does not abhor evil!" 
When she mouthed these words, the skies trembled once more as if it was passing judgment on the people below them.
Lord Raven and the Demonoid army from all over the world froze and they started to shiver.
The words that Eli said became something that exposes them naked. They could not help but feel that they were exposed and their deeds were let out for everyone to see.
Eli did not stop there, seeing that Lord Raven suddenly went into a daze. The book of knowledge flipped once more and she recited what was on it.
"The wicked plots against the just,
And gnashes at him with his teeth.
The Lord laughs at him,
For He sees that his day is coming.
The wicked have drawn the sword
And have bent their bow,
To cast down the poor and needy,
To slay those who are of upright conduct…
Their sword shall enter their own heart,
And their bows shall be broken!!!" 
As soon as Eli finished these words, the skies roared and lightning started to rain in the heavens targeting the behemoths all over the world.
Then she reached out toward Lord Raven's heart and it penetrated like water.
"No!" Lord Raven came to his senses too late when he realized that Eli had already touched his body.
He felt his consciousness jumbled and his body no longer his own.
"Anything but this!" He shouted with hatred but to no avail.
He saw himself, his consciousness blurring out. But his hands were peeled in two, his body separating from his soul.
But that was not all.
Eli's touch caused great pain to his spirit, as it was like a knife forcefully slicing through the core of his soul and spirit.
No amount of power could stop her, for the power that she wielded came straight from the heavenly realms!
"You shall be torn in two…" Eli coldly declared as Lord Raven's two voices rang in misery.
The Demonoid army panicked.
Even Rachana, Emperor Razak, and Pope Ramir all trembled and cowered. As they accepted Birsha's power, he also shared his agony.
And so they also felt the pain of their spirit being sliced by a holy existence searing their wickedness to nothing.
Lord Raven was deeply unwilling, he could not let Eli succeed in her works.
He knew that Eli's heavenly powers are limited and so he decided to put up a fight.
He waved his ethereal-looking hand that was no longer caged in flesh and resisted. The first thing he wanted was to create a distance between him and Eli.
His power contained a large portion of his curse power which made Eli subconsciously away. Her actions made Lord Raven satisfied as he heaved a sigh of relief.
As long as he would not be in contact with her while she was using the book, he would be good. He only had to attack in such a way that it would force her to wield another weapon other than the book.
"You seemed to think that you disrupted my plans, fallen Birsha." Eli looked at the smug look on his face and muttered coldly.
"Look at your precious half, and see if you can still relax." Eli pointed at a certain position which made him also turn that way.
He was shocked by what he had seen and realized what Eli was actually aiming for.
"You… dare to separate me and the soul I infested?!" Fallen Birsha bellowed angrily. He could not believe that Eli's seemingly foolish move was all done to force his angel spirit out of his vessel.
"It's time for you to end your life as a parasite and disappear from this world for good," Eli answered.
Then she looked at Leon who also stepped forward and faced 'Lord Raven' in the flesh.
"It seems like it was me against you now… Lord Raven… or should I say, Vesala Ancestor?"
