Archean Eon Art - Chapter 147
Chapter 147 – Meng Chuans Rescue
As the three-headed demon monarch stepped out of the World Entrance, his aura immediately expanded as he became a third Firmament demon monarch! Five second Firmament demon monarchs followed behind him.
“Green Mountain Prefecture City is in that direction.” The black-robed Pangoswim pointed in a direction.
“Breach Green Mountain Prefecture as quickly as possible!” Jumo’s eyes were filled with arrogance and ferocity as his voice resounded through the mountain.
“Kill all humans!”
The demons frantically rushed towards Green Mountain Prefecture City. Jumo had never planned on being stealthy. The demonic aura of tens of thousands of demons was too eye-catching. The Godfiends must’ve discovered their arrival immediately.
“Let’s kill the Godfiends of Green Mountain Prefecture first,” said Jumo.
“Alright. After wiping out the Godfiends, we can slaughter the mortals in Green Mountain Prefecture City.” The five second Firmament demon monarchs were filled with confidence.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
The six demon monarchs had different bodies, but all were extremely fast as they headed for Green Mountain Prefecture City.
Godfiends had keen senses towards auras. The demonic aura from tens of thousands of demons running towards the city was as eye-catching as the sun in the night.
Green Mountain Prefecture’s Jade Sun Palace Lord, Wang Fucheng, as well as the local Godfiend family clan’s patriarch, Hu Xiao, were both sleeping soundly. However, they put on their robes and rushed to their roofs when the 30,000 strong demon army exited the World Entrance.
The demons are here. Wang Fucheng’s expression turned ugly as he immediately sent a voice transmission to the guards. “Demons are attacking. Inform the entire city quickly.”
Demons are about to attack? Two of the guards—permanently stationed at an ancient bell—were terrified. “Yes, Palace Lord!”
Both guards were at the Seamless realm. They were also Jadesun Palace’s experts. They understood what they had to do when demons attacked. They gathered their strength and rang the ancient bell frantically. Their frantic bashes on the bell produced loud clangs! The urgent bell-clanging spread throughout Green Mountain Prefecture City.
Wang Fucheng and Hu Xiao had already transformed into beams of light as they flew towards the north city wall as quickly as possible.
Hu Xiao slowly approached Wang Fucheng and sent a voice transmission. “Palace Lord, do you know how many demon monarchs there are? What about the number of demons?”
“I don’t know, but with such a dense demonic aura, there must be a demon army attacking.”
“Have you sought help?” asked Hu Xiao via voice transmission.
“Of course. I immediately requested for backup the moment I discovered it.” Wang Fucheng was extremely worried. “However, we are 450 kilometers away from the state capital. Even if Marquis Godfiends are extremely fast, it will take them 15 minutes to get here. In 15 minutes, the entire Green Mountain Prefecture will probably be reduced to ruins.”
“We’ll easily slaughter the mortal demons if we can kill the demon monarchs,” said Hu Xiao.
“Let’s go all out.” Wang Fucheng nodded.
There were too few Marquis Godfiends. Some were stationed at medium-sized city passes and were not permitted to leave without reason. There were even fewer people that could provide support for the various scattered regions.
In any of the Great Zhou Dynasty’s states, only one Marquis Godfiend could provide reinforcements at any time. This was normal!
There were hundreds of prefectures in the Great Zhou Dynasty. The distance between the closest cities to their various state capitals was roughly 100 to 150 kilometers. If one was at the borders of a state, they could be up to 1000 kilometers away. Take the Great Zhou Dynasty’s largest state as an example. Some prefectures were 2500 kilometers away from the state capital. Of course, this state was an outlier, and such a situation wasn’t common.
However, prefectures were usually 500 kilometers away from a state capital. Such a distance would take most Marquis Godfiends 15 minutes to traverse.
But Wang Fucheng didn’t know that the person in charge of reinforcing Green Mountain Prefecture City was North River Pass’s Deputy General Meng Chuan! The rescue personnel was confidential! Many Marquis Godfiends were unaware of their own roles. All they knew was that a certain area was under their charge.
North River Pass, the same night.
Inside their manor, Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue were sleeping soundly on the bed. The white jade token placed under his pillow suddenly turned red-hot. Meng Chuan had already refined it with his Quintessential Essence; thus, he could sense the changes in the token immediately.
Oh? Meng Chuan—who had been sleeping—suddenly opened his eyes. He sat up and retrieved the white jade token from under his pillow. His Patroller token was very important. Whenever he slept, he would place it underneath his pillow. He always carried it with him, never separating from his body when he was awake.
Green Mountain Prefecture? Meng Chuan glanced at the map of the eighteen prefectures on the white jade token. The location where Green Mountain Prefecture City stood glowed red—it was the source of the current heat coming from the token.
Liu Qiyue woke up, and curiously asked, “Why are you up?”
“Green Mountain Prefecture needs help. I’ll be back very soon.” Meng Chuan glanced at Liu Qiyue and instantly put on his boots, taking his saber and robe with him. The windows to the room automatically opened, and with a whoosh, he transformed into a bolt of lightning and flew out the window.
Liu Qiyue sat up and looked out the window. She saw the bolt of lightning streak across the sky and quickly disappear into the night sky.
Ah Chuan has gone to rescue others? Liu Qiyue sat on the bed. She had known about Meng Chuan’s extra duties, but it had been over half a year since they had come to North River Pass, and this was the first time Meng Chuan had gone to rescue a prefecture.
I hope he can make it in time and save more people. I hope Ah Chuan returns safely too. Liu Qiyue looked at the crescent moon outside the window and prayed silently.𝘧𝔯𝑒𝒆𝓌𝘦𝘣𝓷𝘰ѵ𝑒𝘭. 𝐜oｍ
Meng Chuan was rushing towards the battlefield. Currently, she could only pray for blessings. She couldn’t go with him.
Reinforcements needed to arrive as soon as possible! Bringing Liu Qiyue along would reduce Meng Chuan’s speed by 40 percent. It would take him longer to arrive.
Green Mountain Prefecture City’s north city wall.
The six demon monarchs were the first to arrive. They were faster than Wang Fucheng and Hu Xiao—who were rushing to the wall from the center of the city. Jadesun Palace was located nine kilometers away from the north city wall. The demons only needed to travel three kilometers.
The six demon monarchs moved across the city wall and headed straight for the two Godfiends that hadn’t hidden their auras.
The demon monarchs also released their demonic powers. A gray fog spread 1000 feet around them. Dozens of patrolling soldiers on the city wall—which spanned more than 1000 feet—turned into pools of blood, dying on the spot. Following that, the demon monarchs entered the city and casually destroyed the buildings. People in the vicinity died immediately.
When the other soldiers saw this scene from afar, they could only hold in their grief. They knew the difference in strength between mortals and demon monarchs was too great! These demon monarchs were killing humans as if they were stepping on ants. They hadn’t started the true massacre yet.
“We still have Godfiends.” The soldiers continued staring into the distance. They could already feel the ground trembling.
“The demon army!” The soldiers saw an incoming army.
A blinding flame lit up on the city walls, illuminating the surrounding area. They could barely see the horde of demons charging towards them from the dark mountains. The demons at the forefront were extremely fast—so fast that their figures blurred as they rushed over.
“They’re here. The demons are here.” These soldiers knew that they had to risk their lives for the entire city behind them.
A bolt of lightning streaked across the sky, crossing three mountain peaks. He used each mountain peak as a platform as he leaped towards Green Mountain Prefecture.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Lightning erupted from Meng Chuan’s body as he rushed towards the prefecture.
A typical Great Solar Godfiend with a perfected Lightning Devastator Fiend Body could move with speeds that matched a Regis Godfiend’s. They could leap a distance of one kilometer each time! However, after Meng Chuan became a Great Solar Godfiend, the lightning within his body became even stronger. His Godfiend Body had been forged using nine bolts of heavenly lightning—beyond the usual amount needed—and he had attained the Diamond Body, which allowed his meridians to withstand greater bursts of Quintessential Essence. With all this, he could travel 1.5 kilometers in a single leap.
This speed was considered rather fast among Regis Godfiends.
Quick, quick. Faster. Meng Chuan frantically rushed towards Green Mountain Prefecture City. It took him over ten leaps to cross the mountain range.
Meng Chuan quickly passed the 2.5 kilometer-wide Muma river—the raging Muma river is the largest in the Yuan State.
In midair, he used the Swallow Stance once, flashing across the entire Muma River. With another two flashes, he disappeared into the horizon.
Currently, Meng Chuan was as fast as lightning. He was charging towards Green Mountain Prefecture City at an astonishing speed!
