Archean Eon Art - Chapter 114
Chapter 114 – Remoulding The Body
The blue liquid in the Godfiend Blood Pool was somewhat cold. After Meng Chuan entered the Godfiend Blood Pool, he sat in the lotus position. He felt an invisible aura enter his body through his skin. Instantly, a terrifying lifeforce filled his body. Even his nails and hair began to grow rapidly.
Meng Chuan knew that the Godfiend Blood Pool could remould one’s body. It would transform a mortal into a Godfiend. However, it was extremely precious! Otherwise, many geniuses would’ve entered the Godfiend Blood Pool.
“Master, I’m ready,” said Meng Chuan.
“Okay.” At the side, the Supremacy’s long hair fluttered as he looked up. His gaze passed through the rocks and into the vast sky.
Rumble! The sky was originally very calm, but suddenly, two massive black clouds formed, lightning flashing within.
The weather changed instantly? Liu Qiyue—who was watching from afar—was shocked.
Archean Mountain Lord and Elder Yi watched in amazement. Both of them were Regis Godfiends—allowing them to influence the world to a certain extent—but they couldn’t change the weather, summon the wind and rain, or summon heavenly lightning.
The two large dark clouds in the sky collided, and lightning branched out in a tree-shape before striking down.
Bang! The bolt of lightning struck, followed by a loud boom.
After the two dark clouds collided, a thick bolt of lightning struck down. It twisted in midair and happened to strike the Godfiend Blood Pool Cave.
The first bolt of heavenly lightning. Liu Qiyue’s heart tightened. She was extremely concerned about Meng Chuan’s safety. Therefore, she had read the introduction to the Lightning Devastator Fiend Body in the library. She knew that one had to withstand seven bolts of heavenly lightning during the Life-and-Death juncture. With the power of heavenly lightning, the Godfiend Blood Pool’s powers, and the merged baneful aura, one could ultimately attain a Lightning Devastator Fiend Body.
However, if one wasn’t prepared enough, their bodies would be reduced to ash.
“Don’t worry. Meng Chuan’s preparation is more than adequate. Nothing unexpected will happen.” Archean Mountain Lord looked at Liu Qiyue and comforted her.
Meng Chuan sensed something and looked up. He saw a blinding bolt of lightning snake down from the top of the cave. Following that, his consciousness shuddered when the lightning struck him.
“Undergo the Life-and-Death juncture and condense a Godfiend Body!” The Supremacy’s voice sounded in Meng Chuan’s mind.
Meng Chuan remained conscious. Although he had been stunned by the strike, he immediately realized that his body had been torn apart by lightning. The bolt of lightning was directed here by the Supremacy—it was sufficiently powerful. With one bolt of lightning, Meng Chuan’s body, bones, and meridians shattered. The heavenly lightning damaged his entire body and organs severely.
This was considered a good outcome. If it weren’t for him cultivating the Lightning Divine Body—giving him strong resistance to lightning—and his merged baneful aura protecting him, he would’ve been blasted into smithereens the moment the lightning struck him.
Currently, he has severe injuries. If he hadn’t been in the Godfiend Blood Pool, he would be dead from these injuries within seconds.
Very good. Meng Chuan was happy instead of being shocked.
Destruction is needed for creation! Only by breaking free of his mortal coils could he obtain a true Godfiend body!
The Godfiend Blood Pool gave endless vitality to whoever was inside. Capable of rejuvenation—almost able to bring a person back from death—the blue liquid healed Meng Chuan rapidly.
“Reconstruct your body.”
Meng Chuan immediately used his Saber Intent to guide his Quintessential Essence and began reconstructing his body according to the Lightning Devastator Fiend Body formula.
His Quintessential Essence didn’t travel through his meridians. Currently, his Quintessential Essence was guiding the heavenly lightning—as well as his merged baneful aura—around his entire body, including his fractured bones and heavily-injured organs. Heavenly lightning was a heavenly punishment, and it had terrifying destructive power. It wanted to destroy the merged baneful aura, but it was difficult to truly destroy due to being formed by nine different baneful auras—with Six Desires baneful aura as the core. It was too ethereal and abstruse to be annihilated by the lightning.
By following the formula, the heavenly lightning and baneful aura fused together in a mysterious manner. He drew upon the Godfiend Blood Pool’s powers to remould his bones, muscles, and organs.
The heavenly lightning isn’t strong enough. Meng Chuan realized that his merged baneful aura was too strong. It covered his entire body, and the heavenly lightning had little strength left after striking his body.
What he lacked came immediately! The second bolt of lightning struck his body, causing his muscles and organs—that had partially healed—to be damaged.
Meng Chuan continued to reconstruct his body. His Saber Intent controlled his Quintessential Essence, but the expenditure was huge. The Godfiend Blood Pool constantly replenished his Quintessential Essence. At the same time, the rich vitality—granted by the blue liquid seeping into his body—caused Meng Chuan’s tendons and bones to grow again.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
As time passed, several bolts of lightning struck Meng Chuan.
Meng Chuan—who was seated within the Godfiend Blood Pool—was very calm as he continued to reconstruct his body. The weak parts of his body were destroyed. Only by fusing heavenly lightning and the merged baneful aura into his entire body, would he be able to continue withstanding the heavenly lightning.
Meng Chuan felt like he was a piece of metal. The heavenly lightning was a hammer. It repeatedly struck him, completely forging him into steel.
His body was remoulded in different spots, and the remaining mortal body parts were obliterated by the heavenly lightning smiting him. This continued until he was free of his mortal body.
Now, every bone was a hundred-fold stronger than before. They contained heavenly lightning and baneful aura, and its toughness was much greater.
Every muscle, channel, and organ underwent a qualitative change.
Even though he had reached the Saber Intent realm, he could be killed with a single slap with his current body—that had yet to become a Godfiend body.
Oh? Meng Chuan was remoulding his organs when he realized that he couldn’t finish the remoulding process.
There’s still not enough heavenly lightning. He had already undergone seven bolts of heavenly lightning, but his body had yet to be remoulded completely.
The Supremacy knew how Meng Chuan’s body transformation was progressing. He immediately directed another bolt of heavenly lightning to Meng Chuan once again.
The eighth bolt of heavenly lightning struck Meng Chuan. At this point, Meng Chuan would only cough up blood after being struck by heavenly lightning. He could still maintain 70% combat strength. In fact, his muscles and bones were completely unharmed after being struck by the terrifying lightning. He only vomited blood because he hadn’t finished remoulding his organs.
Archean Mountain Lord, Elder Yi, and Liu Qiyue watched from afar. They were mentally prepared to see seven bolts of lightning strike down, but when the eighth bolt struck down—
“Why would there be an eighth bolt of heavenly lightning?” Liu Qiyue’s expression changed drastically. There was no mention of an eighth bolt in the books.
“Don’t panic,” said Elder Yi immediately. “The heavenly lightning is triggered by the Supremacy. He will not commit mistakes. There must be a special situation that requires him to trigger the eighth bolt.”
“As long as he successfully attains the Lightning Devastator Fiend Body, he won’t be afraid of the heavenly lightning,” said Archean Mountain Lord. “The Supremacy definitely has his reasons for his actions.”
Liu Qiyue nodded, but she grew more anxious.
Attempting the Life-and-Death juncture wasn’t a joke. An accident would cause huge problems.
Even if Meng Chuan attained the Lightning Devastator Fiend Body successfully, suffering another bolt of lightning would be a huge problem. Excess lightning remaining in one’s body would become a huge obstacle when attempting to enter the Core Cloud realm.
Another bolt of lightning struck the Godfiend Blood Pool Cave.
It’s the ninth bolt of heavenly lightning. Archean Mountain Lord and Elder Yi were somewhat puzzled and anxious. They believed in the Supremacy, but they could not understand why a ninth bolt of heavenly lightning was triggered.
Liu Qiyue reeled with greater anxiety. However, she could only watch on helplessly.
Allowing her to witness Meng Chuan’s breakthrough was already special treatment. They were the only ones on Archean Mountain who could personally witness Meng Chuan’s Life-and-Death juncture! Others were forbidden from approaching Life-and-Death Peak. The dark clouds and the lightning were not visible once one was beyond Life-and-Death Peak. Likewise, thunder couldn’t be heard. At this moment, Life-and-Death Peak was completely isolated from the outside world.
Inside the Godfiend Blood Pool, Meng Chuan sat in the lotus position. His skin was crystalline, and his hair shiny. His clothes were incinerated into ashes, revealing his chest. His body emitted an inexplicable aura as lightning trembled beneath his skin. The Godfiend Blood Pool still had plenty of blue liquid. It was replenished as fast as it was drained. There was no worry about it running out.
I’ve finally succeeded in remoulding my body. Meng Chuan heaved a sigh of relief. He realized that seven bolts of heavenly lightning had been insufficient to remould his body completely. Only with nine bolts of heavenly lightning and the merged baneful aura, did he finish remoulding his body.
He had attained a true Godfiend body. He bade farewell to the Mortal realm and became a Godfiend.
However, there was another important step—condensing the Core Cloud.
Unlike demons that mostly had powerful bodies—70% of their strength coming from their physical bodies and 30% of their strength coming from demonic powers—humans were different. Seventy percent of a human Godfiend’s strength was from their Quintessential Essence. The Core Cloud realm, Indestructible realm, Great Solar realm, Darkstar realm, and Incessant realm referred to the five different forms of Quintessential Essence within the dantian.
