Archean Eon Art - Chapter 116
Chapter 116 – 20Th August (Final Chapter Of Volume)
Archean Mountain Lord, Elder Yi, and Liu Qiyue looked at the entrance to Godfiend Blood Pool Cave. Finally, they saw a short-haired Meng Chuan exit. However, his aura was clearly different.
“It’s a success.” Archean Mountain Lord and Elder Yi nodded with a smile.
“Ah Chuan.” Liu Qiyue immediately rushed over. Meng Chuan held Qiyue’s hands with a smile. “I’m now a Core Cloud Godfiend. I have a perfected Lightning Devastator Fiend Body.”
Liu Qiyue’s heart relaxed; she was brimming with joy.
“Alright, the two of you should hurry down the mountain peak,” said Archean Mountain Lord with a smile. “You mustn’t stay on Life-and-Death Peak for long.”
“Yes,” Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue replied respectfully and immediately went down the mountain peak.
Archean Mountain Lord and Elder Yi watched them leave.
“Our Archean Mountain has finally produced a genius with a perfected Lightning Devastator Fiend Body after Marquis Sea Return,” said Archean Mountain Lord wistfully. “Furthermore, he required nine bolts of heavenly lightning during the Life-and-Death juncture. He must be special.”
“I took a careful look just now,” said Elder Yi. “The heavenly lightning and baneful aura in his body are stronger than I expected.”
“Yes.” Archean Mountain Lord nodded. “I also noticed it. He endured nine bolts of heavenly lightning, so it’s understandable if he has more heavenly lightning. However, his baneful aura is fifty percent stronger than Marquis Sea Return’s back when he became a Godfiend. That’s strange.”
“Perhaps Supremacy knows,” said Elder Yi.
The two of them didn’t make any further guesses. There were many secrets in the world. Even they, two Regis Godfiends, didn’t have all the answers. For example, they didn’t know what was at the bottom of the Pit of Bewilderment. Only by reaching the pit’s end themselves could they learn what lay at the bottom. Since Archean Mountain Lord and Elder Yi hadn’t been able to reach the bottom, they were unaware of its secrets. There were many things they didn’t know about. Meng Chuan likely had secrets, but it wasn’t their place to ask if the Supremacy didn’t tell them.
Many secrets of the human race were hidden by Creation Supremacies from the three large sects. They naturally had their reasons for keeping the secrets.
Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue traveled very quickly and were in a good mood.
Oh? Meng Chuan? A Godfiend saw Meng Chuan from afar and realized that Meng Chuan’s aura was completely different. The difference between mortal auras and Godfiend auras was too great. He became a Godfiend?
Meng Chuan has become a Godfiend?
He passed the Life-and-Death juncture and became a Godfiend?
On their way back from Life-and-Death Peak to Bright Scenic Peak, seven Archean Mountain Godfiends saw them. Since they discovered Meng Chuan was now a Godfiend, the news would spread quickly
Back Meng Chuan’s cave abode.
“We must celebrate this afternoon. I’ll cook food personally.” Liu Qiyue was very happy as she instructed the servants to prepare all kinds of ingredients.
“Alright, I’ll go to the training grounds. I need to familiarize myself with my current strength,” said Meng Chuan.
“Go on. I’ll call you when the food is ready.” Liu Qiyue waved her hand.
Meng Chuan arrived at his training grounds.
According to records, a Core Cloud Godfiend with a perfected Lightning Devastator Fiend Body should be comparable to an ordinary second Firmament demon monarch. My Godfiend foundation was three-fold more robust than an ordinary mortal’s. My physical body and Quintessential Essence should be stronger than ordinary second Firmament demon monarchs’. The books he read had indicated the strength differences clearly.
Of course, I can’t underestimate a second Firmament demon monarch. Humans have geniuses, and the demons have elites. There are quite a few terrifying second Firmament demon monarchs.
Meng Chuan shook his head to rid himself of useless thoughts. Time to check how fast I am.
Meng Chuan was eager to test his speed.
With a thought, lightning surged out from every cell in his body. He instantly transformed into a bolt of lightning and dashed out of the training grounds.
He was simply too fast!
I’m really fast. Meng Chuan had jumped out of the training grounds with one attempt. He had jumped a height of 300 feet—the height of some smaller hills. This was just a casual jump. Upon closer inspection, his whole body was covered by lightning.
It’s no wonder the speed granted by the Lightning Devastator Fiend Body is superior to all other Godfiend bodies. My speed with a perfected Lightning Devastator Fiend Body should be the greatest compared to Godfiends in the same realm.
He circled Bright Scenic Peak before returning to his cave abode. In such a short time, he traveled about four kilometers.Meng Chuan remained shocked by his speed when he returned to the training grounds. He sighed inwardly. No wonder it’s said that one’s speed would match a Regis Godfiend after reaching the Great Solar realm if they cultivated a Lightning Devastator Fiend Body. After becoming a Marquis Godfiend, one’s speed can be described as the best in the world. It’s said that in the later stages of cultivation, one’s speed can match lightning.
The further he brought his Lightning Devastator Fiend Body, the closer he was to the speed of lightning. A newly-formed Lightning Devastator Fiend Body granted him speed equal to that of a Marquis Godfiend. It was terrifying.
However, killing a demon monarch depends on many factors.
When I fought Demon Monarch Poison Pool, I used the Power of Essence Soul to move faster than him. However, I could only pierce through an inch of the black fog around his body, even with a Power of Essence Soul-infused strike. I was far from tearing through his black fog. I only have heaven-defying speed. When it comes to other aspects, I’m only at the level of an ordinary Indestructible Godfiend. Meng Chuan understood his shortcomings.
Every transcendent-grade Godfiend body specialized in certain aspects. They were often heaven-defyingly strong when it came to what they specialized in.
For example, the Indestructible Divine Body had the strongest domain and greatest lifeforce among the twelve transcendent-grade Godfiend bodies! One could regrow a severed limb within ten minutes. They could rapidly recover from injuries like an impaled heart. Once the domain was released, it was difficult for enemies to approach them. The Indestructible Divine Body was lacking when it came to melee combat.
The Lightning Devastator Fiend Body had heaven-defying speed! However, it was weaker in other aspects. When escaping, enemies would find it difficult to pursue them. When pursuing enemies, they would find it difficult to escape. As for killing an enemy? Their enemy would be hit multiple times before they could even see what happened.
However, I can’t rely on my speed, or I’ll tempt fate! Didn’t Senior Brother Gao Cong—who completed the Eighth Refinement—and Marquis Sea Return—who completed the Ninth Refinement—all die the same? Meng Chuan reminded himself not to be arrogant.
Gao Cong was attacked by over 30 third Firmament demon monarchs and over 100 second Firmament demon monarchs. Eventually, he lost his life. Marquis Sea Return was the fastest in the world, but he died because of a mysterious special mission.
Humans were powerful, but demons were able to suppress humans! Demon monarchs had their own strengths. They had all kinds of strange moves. If they were careless, they might lose their lives.
At the training grounds, Meng Chuan executed his saber art.
Under normal circumstances, he would fuse the Power of Essence Soul with his body and Quintessential Essence before executing a saber art.
I’m stronger than ordinary second Firmament demon monarchs. Poison Pool should have thirty percent of my current strength, right? I was really lucky to escape from Poison Pool back then. Thankfully, I was good at running and that Dad came quickly. Meng Chuan remembered Poison Pool’s strength and felt lingering fear.
However, the Power of Essence Soul doesn’t boost me as much anymore. Meng Chuan frowned. The Power of Essence Soul allowed one to draw greater strength from their body. Their control over their Quintessential Essence would be exquisite. The only side-effect was they would consume twice as much energy.
When I was a mortal, the Power of Essence Soul increased my strength and speed several-fold. After becoming a Core Cloud Godfiend, the Power of Essence Soul can only double my strength. I also use more of the Power of Essence Soul up.
Having such a powerful body would place greater burden on the Essence Soul.
If I reach the Great Solar realm, I guess the Power of Essence Soul will be less useful? Meng Chuan surmised. Unless my Essence Soul undergoes a qualitative change, this will be the outcome.
That afternoon, Meng Chuan ate the feast Qiyue had personally prepared.
Being able to share the joy of becoming a Godfiend was a joyous matter. However, he couldn’t tell his father immediately.
After lunch, Meng Chuan began painting on a canvas.
This painting was for his father. It was an ink painting, and the painting was simple.
First, one could see a family of three—a young father stood next to a mother carrying a child. The child was none other than himself. With a few strokes, a scene appeared. It was filled with memories of his happy childhood. The painting was filled with happy memories of their family of three.
Following that, he drew another father and a boy. The father personally taught the boy saber arts. The boy grew taller, and his father sent him to Mirror Lake Dao Academy. At the Demon-Slaying Meet, the youth became famous! His father grinned and was extremely proud.
In the ruins of Eastcalm City, the young man walked alongside his father. On a giant bird, the youth, his father, and others were led by Marquis Southcloud to Archean City.
The father bid farewell to his son since his son was staying on Archean Mountain.
The final scene was of a bald youth sitting in the Godfiend Blood Pool. Heavenly lightning struck him as he attempted the Life-and-Death juncture.
It was a very simple ink painting. The painting was filled with childish joy; but, every stroke contained Meng Chuan’s longing for his father. Since he was young, he had never been separated from his father for so long. He really missed his father! He wanted to tell his father personally: “Dad, I’ve become a Godfiend!” However, he had no choice but to tell his father through a painting.
After spending nearly four hours painting, he wrote a few sentences on the right side of the painting—On 20th August, after challenging the Life-and-Death juncture and becoming a Godfiend with a perfected Lightning Devastator Fiend Body, I dedicated this scrawl to my father, Meng Dajiang.
