Archean Eon Art - Chapter 149
Chapter 149 – Slaying
Crescent Lake was in Green Mountain Prefecture City. It was shaped like a crescent moon. The lake was roughly 2.5 kilometers long and a kilometer wide.
Green Mountain Prefecture’s Jadesun Palace Lord, Wang Fucheng, was battling the three-headed demon monarch on the lake. Countless streams of water swirled in the air as they constantly bombarded the three-headed demon monarch. However, the three-headed demon monarch was unfazed by the attacks.
Jumo’s three heads differed in size. The middle head was of average size, while the other two heads were half the average size. Jumo also had six black arms; he held a curved blade in each hand as he constantly attacked Wang Fucheng.
Every exchange of moves was horrifying; they caused the lake to explode continuously.
Wang Fucheng held the terrain advantage as he attempted to suppress his opponent with his domain. His sword art was good at defense, but he remained disadvantaged against Jumo.
Hu Xiao had already used forbidden spells to fight against the second Firmament demon monarchs with all his might.
“Palace Lord, I can’t hold on any longer,” said Hu Xiao via voice transmission. “Neither of these demon monarchs are inferior to me. Even with your domain aiding me, I won’t be able to last for much longer.”
“I will die swiftly once the demon monarchs join forces after you die,” said Wang Fucheng. “We’ll probably die within ten strikes if we try escaping from Crescent Lake.”
A demon monarch’s lightning-fast tail stabbed out. Hu Xiao hurriedly used his left arm to block, but the purple tail pierced through his armor. Hu Xiao’s severed arm flew into the air.
“Kill him.” The second Firmament demon monarchs smiled hideously. With five of them against one person—even if the other party was desperately fighting—they could kill him quickly.
“Ahhh!” Hu Xiao went crazy. He wanted at least one demon monarch to die with him.
“Brother Xiao.” Wang Fucheng was helpless when he saw this scene. Suddenly, he saw lightning passing through the northern horizon.
The bolt of lightning flew over from the north. It moved at supersonic speeds. Meng Chuan arrived at Crescent Lake before the explosions, and cheers at the city wall could be heard here.
“That’s…” Jumo and the second Firmament demon monarchs sensed a powerful Godfiend aura rapidly approaching them. At that moment, Meng Chuan’s Quintessential Essence erupted. His Godfiend aura was not concealed at all; it was extremely eye-catching.
The six demon monarchs were alarmed. It hadn’t been long since they attacked Green Mountain Prefecture City. How had a Godfiend arrived so quickly?
A Godfiend is here! Wang Fucheng and Hu Xiao were delighted by this turn of events.
Meng Chuan—who was covered in lightning—immediately discovered Hu Xiao in a dire situation.
Six demon monarchs? Meng Chuan’s body flashed as he landed on Crescent Lake’s surface. He did not hesitate to draw his saber.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Six saber beams instantly erupted from Demon Slayer. Covered in blinding lightning, the saber beams distorted the void, warping space. The second Firmament demon monarchs were about to dodge, but the saber beams had already reached them by the time they could react. The second Firmament demon monarchs were sliced in half by the saber beams; their bodies fell into the lake, dyeing the water red.
Hu Xiao—who was about to sacrifice himself—looked at the five demon monarch corpses dazedly. He understood that he had survived!
It’s too fast! Jumo realized that the saber beam had distorted the void and instantly closed in on him. After realizing that he couldn’t dodge the saber beam, he raised his six arms to block it.
Jumo found the saber beam too overwhelming! It completely crushed his defense!
Two curved blades were sent flying from the impact while the other four curved blades continued to be held. However, Jumo’s hands were covered in blood. His hands were injured by the impact. Blood gushed out from his hands, but he had managed to stay alive.
He defeated me with a single saber beam? Jumo found it unbelievable. Although he had recently reached the third Firmament and had yet to consolidate his strength, his true form was a three-headed magical snake. His bloodline was much stronger than ordinary demon monarchs. As an Archean Mountain disciple, Wang Fucheng—who was at the peak of the Indestructible realm—was comparable to an ordinary third Firmament demon monarch. However, he was still suppressed by Jumo in a one-on-one battle even though he held the terrain advantage.
Meng Chuan defeated Jumo with a casual saber beam upon arrival.
After landing on the lake’s surface, the lightning receded and revealed Meng Chuan’s figure.
Senior Brother Meng! Wang Fucheng revealed a look of delight. He naturally recognized the genius Archean Mountain disciple that had mastered a Black Metal Sutra move and had a perfected Lightning Devastator Fiend Body.
Meng Chuan glanced at the three-headed demon monarch in surprise. His brows pricked up. “It didn’t die?”
He’s too powerful. If I can’t escape, I’ll die! Jumo was filled with horror. He didn’t hesitate to use the innate abilities provided by his bloodline.
His body split into three, transforming into three black snakes. The three black snakes instantly burrowed into Crescent Lake and fled in three different directions.
“Do you think you can escape?” Lightning flashed from Meng Chuan’s body as he instantly split into three identical figures.
The three Meng Chuans slashed out!
The saber beams parted the lake—that was several hundred feet deep. Following that, the saber beams struck the black snakes that were frantically escaping.
The three black snakes were hit! Two black snakes were halved, immediately causing a massive snake corpse to be revealed. Only one black snake remained alive despite being struck. Its body had a deep wound, but its body wasn’t sliced through. With a twist of its body, it burrowed into the mud at the bottom of the lake and continued its escape.
Two avatars? That’s the true body? It looks like it’s a demon monarch with a special bloodline. Meng Chuan took two steps forward before brandishing his saber again!
The lake water parted once again. When the saber beam struck the bottom of the lake, a Yin-Yang blast transmitted downwards.
Jumo fled frantically, continuing to burrow underground.
I’m a three-headed magical snake. I’m good at escaping through water and burrowing into the ground. No matter how fast that human Godfiend is, he can’t compare to me when it comes to burrowing in the ground. I’ll definitely be able to escape. Jumo had used a forbidden spell when he burrowed into the ground. The deeper underground he went, the better. It gave him a sense of security.
However, a strange force rapidly spread underground, instantly reaching his body.
“No.” Jumo could not help but feel fear and despair when he sensed the terrifying force.
The strange force exploded after it reached his body. Demon Monarch Jumo’s body instantly burst.
My life-preservation means are very strong. I’m good at escaping through water and burrowing into the ground. I came to the human world to make great contributions. I wanted to receive the demons’ bestowment. In the future, I could become a fourth Firmament demon monarch or even a fifth Firmament greater demon monarch. No, I’m unwilling to accept this. Jumo felt his consciousness dissipate. He felt extreme despair and indignation. Was he about to die just after coming to the human world?
Riches were sought in danger! The demons’ hierarchy was strict, and many large factions had occupied the resources. Although coming to the human world was dangerous, it was a good opportunity to stand out.
He came! Yet, he was unable to withstand the danger.
His injuries were too severe. He only managed a few more seconds of consciousness before it completely dissipated.
Meng Chuan stood on the lake surface and pointed downwards. “The demon monarch’s corpse is 270 feet below the lake.”
The demon monarch didn’t know that Meng Chuan could sense auras within a kilometer of him! Meng Chuan could clearly sense the demon monarch when he reached the bottom of the lake. If he were to use the Tiger Roar Stance, Meng Chuan would create a thousand-foot-wide crater! It would reduce the demon monarch to smithereens! However, a demon monarch’s corpse could be used by Archean Mountain; thus, he didn’t destroy it completely.
“I’ll dig it out,” said Wang Fucheng immediately with a smile.
“I’ll leave the aftermath to you. I’ll go destroy those demons.” With that said, Meng Chuan transformed into a bolt of lightning and headed for the northern city wall.
“Senior Brother Meng, don’t worry,” said Wang Fucheng loudly as he watched Meng Chuan leave.
Wang Fucheng stood there, casting his domain. The lake water parted, revealing the bottom of the lake. Water tore through the soil and constantly drilled downwards.
“Palace Lord, who was that?” Hu Xiao walked over while clasping his arm stump.
“That’s a top Archean Mountain disciple,” said Wang Fucheng with a smile. “An ordinary disciple like me will still be thrashed by Senior Brother Meng even when I become a Great Solar Godfiend. Of course, by the time I reach the Great Solar realm, Senior Brother Meng might already be a Darkstar Godfiend by then.”
Whoosh! Water swirled around the snake’s corpse—pulled out from underground.
