Archean Eon Art - Chapter 139
Chapter 139 – Rain
Above North River Pass’s inner-city wall.
Meng Chuan looked down. The city wall was 800 feet tall. Ordinary mortals would suffer from some level of acrophobia when looking down from such heights!
The World Entrance—about a kilometer long and a quarter-kilometer wide—caused killing intent to surge inside Meng Chuan. On the World Entrance’s other side was the source of all the pain humans had suffered for the past 800 years. Meng Chuan could smell the foul stench of blood. Many mortal soldiers and Godfiends had perished here. However, even more demons died here!
“How is it?” Zhang Yunhu walked over and looked down. “How does it feel to look down for the first time?”
“It’s still alright.” Meng Chuan nodded slightly. “Can water be placed on the ground? Or things like chains?”
“What are you getting at?” Zhang Yunhu’s heart stirred.
“As you know, I can use lightning.” Meng Chuan looked down. “If I don’t have a conducting medium, the area my lightning can affect will be lesser. A lot of my lightning’s power will be consumed for dielectric breakdown to occur. If the ground is filled with chains or water, my lightning will cover the entire battlefield instantly.”
Zhang Yunhu’s eyes lit up as he solemnly asked, “How powerful will it be?”
“Everything below the demon monarch realm will die without question. Second Firmament demon monarchs will be severely injured, and third Firmament demon monarchs will be slightly affected,” said Meng Chuan. “However, this has the best results when employed for the first time. In the future, the enemy will be on guard against this.”
“North River Pass doesn’t have that many chains, but creating shallow puddles is very easy,” said Zhang Yunhu with a smile.
“I’ve already compacted the ground below. Junior Sister Yan, you can summon the rain now,” instructed Zhang Yunhu. There were 31 Godfiends at North River Pass; each had different strengths. For example, some could summon wind and rain, and some could control fire and lightning.
“Yes, Senior Brother Zhang.” Yan Jun immediately controlled the surroundings with her Quintessential Essence. She could attack with her water domain! Thus, it was very easy for her to summon “rain.”
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The rain grew heavier and heavier. Under the pouring rain, water gradually pooled on the ground.
“Stop when the water is three feet deep,” instructed Zhang Yunhu.
“Yes.” Yan Jun nodded solemnly. She continuously used her domain to summon rain and continue the downpour.
On the other side of the World Entrance.
In the Demon Realm, a demon troop was also permanently stationed there. The demons held the absolute advantage; thus, they were unafraid of humans charging in since it would be suicidal. The guards weren’t needed, but they still needed to be careful of humans setting traps in the Human Realm. Therefore, they would send lesser demons to keep an eye. In fact, all traps had limited effects against the combined forces of demon monarchs. It was not worth setting up traps.
“It’s raining in the human world.” A tiger demon’s massive head passed through the World Entrance and carefully looked to the other side. He could see the rain pouring heavily in the human world. “The rain is quite heavy.”
The demons thought nothing of it. Wasn’t it common for a storm to happen?
29th February, night. Three months after arriving at North River Pass.
In a quiet room in a manor.
Meng Chuan sat in the lotus position and consumed another Thousand Star Pill. This was the tenth Thousand Star Pills he had consumed tonight. Following that, he used the Power of the Essence Soul and carefully observed his body. It wasn’t to muster his strength! It was purely observation. He observed his body carefully using a mystic technique. He had cultivated the body cultivation system he had obtained from Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven. The subtle components of his body were magnified greatly with the mystic technique. He could see all kinds of large and small particles clearly.
From his current microscopic point of view, Meng Chuan could see that the human body was formed from countless tiny particles. Meng Chuan was astonished when he obtained this cultivation system but began cultivating this system nevertheless. Thanks to his powerful Godfiend body, second-stage Essence Soul, and high cultivation realm, he completed Foundation Establishment—using the Cosmo Crystal he obtained from Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven—in a month. He was now cultivating the Diamond realm.
The Diamond realm cultivated one’s body at a deeper level. He could already see various tiny particles. Be it muscle, skin, bones, organs, blood, or anything in his body; they were formed from tiny particles. The Diamond realm united these tiny particles when guided by his Saber Soul. The strength of these tiny particles gradually fused and formed the Diamond body.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Meng Chuan guided large amounts of Quintessential Essence with his Saber Soul. He controlled the minute movements and used the Power of Essence Soul to cultivate these extremely tiny particles.
This was a very elaborate and intricate cultivation method, much more difficult than embroidering flowers on rice grains. The Diamond realm required one to cultivate all the tiny particles in one’s body! This took an immense amount of energy. Meng Chuan’s energy source was his Quintessential Essence, and he needed to replenish his Quintessential Essence with Thousand Star Pills constantly. He needed to consume ten Thousand Stars Pills during his four-hour daily cultivation.
However, this would still take him half a year to complete the Diamond realm! Thankfully, Meng Chuan had cultivated on Myriad Thunder Peak back at Archean Mountain. He consumed very few Thousand Star Pills, and he had managed to save up nearly 2,000 of them. It was barely enough for him to complete the Diamond realm.
Now, he had been in the Diamond realm for only two months. He was still far from completing the Diamond realm.
His skin glowed like crystalline jade.
His aura rose. But then, his aura suddenly withdrew into his body, making him appear ordinary. Meng Chuan opened his eyes.
This expends many Thousand Stars Pills, but it’s very worth it. I’ve been cultivating the Diamond realm for two months, and my body is becoming stronger.
He had tempered his skin for the past two months. His skin had completely transformed. If an enemy’s blade struck him, his skin would deflect the impact naturally. Together with his Quintessential Essence and armor, Meng Chuan could resist an elite third Firmament demon monarch’s attacks.
Most importantly, my meridians have also transformed. They are very flexible.
Meng Chuan was rather delighted.
My Quintessential Essence burst is three-fold greater than before.
He could unleash more Quintessential Essence, increasing his physical strength greatly. His overall strength had increased by 50%.
If I completely master the Diamond realm, my strength will increase further
. This body cultivation system had various requirements on one’s Essence Soul and etc. This cultivation system would also peak at the Blood Droplet realm in the human world. To a Creation Supremacy, this cultivation system was average, but Meng Chuan was extremely satisfied.
After he was done with his cultivation, Meng Chuan left the chamber and returned to his room.
Liu Qiyue was already asleep. She woke up after Meng Chuan entered.
“The cultivation of your mystic technique takes so much time every day,” Liu Qiyue said with a smile as she sat up. “However, it’s indeed a good mystic technique if it’s able to increase your chances of surviving on the battlefield.”
She was a sharpshooter; she hid far away as she shot arrows.
Meng Chuan needed to fight demon monarchs close-quarters. Liu Qiyue was very happy that he had this mystic technique.
“It just consumes a lot of Thousand Star Pills.” Meng Chuan smiled as he took off his clothes and went to bed.
“We just arrived and haven’t even experienced a battle,” Liu Qiyue said softly. “When can we get married?”
“We have to gain a foothold first, right?” Meng Chuan gently hugged Liu Qiyue. Godfiends toed the line between life and death. No one knew if tomorrow would come. They had consummated, but they still needed to have a grand wedding.
“Once we gain a foothold in North River Pass, we will have enough status. Then, we will invite Dad and company over for our wedding. Nobody in North River Pass will say anything when that happens,” said Meng Chuan. “The two of us are new Godfiends. We haven’t even accomplished anything. If we hold a marriage immediately, people will start gossiping behind our backs. Marriage is an extremely important matter in our lives. Naturally, we should try to make it as perfect as possible.”
“Yes.” Liu Qiyue leaned into Meng Chuan’s arms. “I wonder when the demons will attack. Sometimes, I hope the demons will never come again, but I know that’s impossible.”
“Just be prepared at any time,” said Meng Chuan calmly.
However, little did they expect that they would welcome their first bloody battle tomorrow.
