Archean Eon Art - Chapter 113
Chapter 113 – Godfiend Blood Pool
One of his cultivation goals was to become a Godfiend! Only by becoming a Godfiend could he kill demon monarchs!
When he was young, he had sworn an oath in front of his mother’s grave. His father had been looking forward to it for many years, and he carried his grandaunt and the entire family clan’s hopes. It was also his personal goal. All his years of cultivation were for becoming a Godfiend.
He was willing to risk his life to become a Godfiend.
Tonight, he had finally completed the Ninth Refinement. He was only one step away from becoming a Godfiend. How could Meng Chuan not be excited?
That night, he tossed and turned. He didn’t sleep well at all. It was the first time he had insomnia since he came to Archean Mountain. However, the next morning, he remained as spirited as usual. He chuckled and became even warmer towards the stewards and servants in the cave abode. It made the stewards and servants flattered.
“What happened to our lord?”
“Why is he so polite today?”
“Ah Chuan.” Liu Qiyue came to have breakfast with Meng Chuan, and realized that Meng Chuan kept on smiling. She couldn’t help but ask, “Ah Chuan, why are you acting strangely today?”
“Acting strangely?” Meng Chuan looked at her.
“When I come at this time, you are usually still practicing your saber art,” said Liu Qiyue. “Today, you ate breakfast early. Furthermore, you are eating so leisurely.”
Meng Chuan drank the porridge and smiled. “No rush.”
“Aren’t you going to Thousand Sabers Cavern later?” Liu Qiyue asked curiously.
“No.” Meng Chuan shook his head.
Liu Qiyue was a little stunned. She was puzzled. Why wasn’t the diligent Meng Chuan practicing today?
“I’ll be heading to the Treasure Repository in a while to meet Elder Yi,” said Meng Chuan with a smile. “I’m preparing for the Life-and-Death juncture.”
Liu Qiyue’s eyes widened in shock. “Ah Chuan, you’re becoming a Godfiend?”
“Three days before the Life-and-Death juncture, all cultivation needs to be stopped. I need to rest well and maintain peak physical and mental state,” said Meng Chuan with a smile. “Therefore, I’m not practicing my saber art today.”
This was also a requirement to become a Godfiend. Challenging the Life-and-Death juncture wasn’t a joke! It transformed one’s body from a mortal’s to a true Godfiend’s. One couldn’t be careless in any aspect.
“Yes, yes, yes. That’s right. Have a good rest for the next three days.” Liu Qiyue nodded immediately. “I’ll accompany you to the Treasure Repository later.”
After breakfast, Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue left Bright Scenic Peak and arrived at the main peak—Yellow Reverence Peak. They walked towards the Treasure Repository.
“Lord Meng Chuan is here.”
“Pills and treasures aren’t distributed today. Is Lord Meng Chuan coming here to challenge the Life-and-Death juncture?” Many people in the Treasure Repository guessed when they saw Meng Chuan. This was because Meng Chuan had finished collecting all 90 bottles of Six Desires baneful aura a month ago. Everyone had been waiting for him to pass the Life-and-Death juncture and become a Godfiend. However, over a month had passed without anything happening. For Meng Chuan to suddenly come today, many people naturally had such speculations.
Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue entered the Treasure Repository.
“Lord Meng Chuan.” A cyan-robed man took the initiative to welcome him.
“I’m preparing to challenge the Life-and-Death juncture,” said Meng Chuan. “Please inform the Elder quickly.”
“Yes.” The cyan-robed man’s eyes lit up. He immediately nodded. “I’ll report it to Elder Yi.”
Everyone on the Treasure Repository’s first floor heard him clearly. They couldn’t help but feel excited. As stewards and servants who had served Godfiends their whole lives, they were also very concerned about Godfiends’ various affairs. They felt honored when a powerful Godfiend was born. They grieved for every dead Godfiend.
“Meng Chuan.” Elder Yi walked out and chuckled. “You’re finally planning to attempt the Life-and-Death juncture?”
“Yes.” Meng Chuan nodded.
Elder Yi took a closer look at Meng Chuan. “Indeed, you have merged all nine baneful auras. You have long comprehended Saber Intent, and your body doesn’t have any latent injuries either. Everything is fine. Let’s do it. From today onwards, rest for three days straight. Don’t cultivate. Allow your body and mind to reach their optimum state.
“By the way, these are three Creation Pills.” Elder Yi handed a blue jade bottle to Meng Chuan. “Consume a Creation Pill every day. It will be beneficial to your body and mind. Three days later—20th August—go to the Godfiend Blood Pool Cave at Life-and-Death Mountain Peak in the morning. When the time comes, the Supremacy will personally attract the seven lightning bolts for you.”
“Yes.” Meng Chuan nodded solemnly.
“Go back and have a good rest,” said Elder Yi with a smile. Following that, he looked at Liu Qiyue. “Liu Qiyue, you should focus on your cultivation and reach the Realm of Intent quickly.”
“Yes, Elder.” Liu Qiyue immediately replied before leaving with Meng Chuan.
Elder Yi watched the duo leave with a smile. He was very concerned about these two juniors.
One had awakened a phoenix bloodline, making her the second person in this world to have one. She was guaranteed a perfected Phoenix Divine Body.
The other had cultivated a Lightning Devastator Fiend Body by himself. Furthermore, he had completed the Ninth Refinement. It was in no way inferior to a perfected Phoenix Divine Body.
Elder Yi was very satisfied that the two of them were together. This was because the more powerful a Godfiend couple was, the more powerful their children would be. For example, King Calm Sea’s children had all become Godfiends. There were some with very high aptitudes. The other Regis Godfiend were similar. If a Creation realm expert was willing to pay the price, their children would have inborn Essence Souls.
The more powerful Godfiends we humans have, the better. Elder Yi watched the duo’s figures getting fainter and fainter.
Three days later—20th August. The morning was cold and bleak.
Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue arrived at Life-and-Death Mountain Peak together. It was a very important place for Archean Mountain. Disciples were strictly forbidden from entering unless they had permission. This was because the mountain peak housed an extremely important treasured land—the Godfiend Blood Pool! Meng Chuan came here because he was challenging the Life-and-Death juncture. Outer sect disciples constantly fought and accumulated credit on the battlefield so they could enter the Godfiend Blood Pool. Inner sect disciples didn’t have to go through such trouble.
I’m almost there. Meng Chuan’s eyes were filled with anticipation. His condition had never been better. He had consumed the precious Creation Pills for three consecutive days. Now, his body had rich vitality, and his mind felt ethereal and comfortable.
Ahead of him was the Godfiend Blood Pool Cave.
“Oh?” Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue saw two figures standing in the distance. One was Archean Mountain Lord, while the other was Elder Yi.
“Mountain Lord, Elder.” Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue walked forward and bowed respectfully.
Archean Mountain Lord nodded slightly. “Liu Qiyue, there’s no need for you to proceed any further. Just stay here and observe the ceremony with Elder Yi and me.”
“Yes,” replied Liu Qiyue respectfully.
“Meng Chuan, go on.” Archean Mountain Lord pointed at Godfiend Blood Pool Cave. “The Supremacy is inside. He will personally protect you. Only a very small number of disciples will be personally protected by the Supremacy as they become Godfiends.”
“Just follow the Lightning Devastator Fiend Body formula. There’s no need to worry,” said Elder Yi.
“I’ll be leaving first,” said Meng Chuan respectfully.
Liu Qiyue gave Meng Chuan a look of encouragement. Meng Chuan smiled and walked towards Godfiend Blood Pool Cave.
Godfiend Blood Pool Cave looked ordinary. It stretched out into a rather spacious cave tunnel and meandered. At the end of the tunnel, one could see a pool that was twenty feet wide—it was relatively small and ordinary. There were small holes by the side of the pool. These tiny holes had blue liquid flowing in. The blue liquid slowly filled the Godfiend Blood Pool.
“In a while, the Godfiend Blood Pool will be filled.” The Supremacy appeared from the void and appeared beside the Godfiend Blood Pool.
“Master.” Meng Chuan bowed respectfully.
“Once the Godfiend Blood Pool is filled, enter it and sit in a lotus position,” said the Supremacy indifferently. “Once you are ready, I will draw seven heavenly lightning bolts for you.”
“I understand,” said Meng Chuan respectfully. He waited for the Godfiend Blood Pool to be filled. The Godfiend Blood Pool was an extremely important resource for humans. The most valuable item was the blue liquid. Normally, the pool was empty! Only when one was about to break through would the liquid be directed here.
The pool wasn’t blood-colored, so why was it called the Godfiend Blood Pool?
This was because in ancient times, humanity had expended all the Godfiend Blood Pool’s resources. For Godfiends to pass down the legacy, powerful Godfiends used their Godfiend Blood Crystals as materials for the Godfiend Blood Pool. Godfiend Blood Crystals were not something common Godfiends possessed. Only powerful Godfiends could cultivate Godfiend Blood Crystals in their middle dantian. A Godfiend Blood Crystal was more important than the blood in their bodies. It represented their bodies’ foundation and also affected their lifespan.
The powerful Godfiends paid significant prices to ensure that the Godfiend legacy wouldn’t end. Now, there was no need for powerful Godfiends to pay such a price. However, they kept using the name “Godfiend Blood Pool” so that juniors remembered the powerful Godfiend seniors that had used their lifespans and cultivation foundation to continue the Godfiend legacy.
“Alright, the Godfiend Blood Pool is full. You can enter,” said the Supremacy.
“Yes, Master.” Meng Chuan took off his boots and jacket and put down his saber. He wore only a tight-fitting robe as he walked barefoot into the twenty-foot-wide Godfiend Blood Pool.
