Archean Eon Art - Chapter 155
Chapter 155 – Demon Monarch Lions Death
While Meng Chuan and company suffered the barrage of attacks, a large number of demons and second Firmament demon monarchs exited the World Entrance.
Countless demons ran on top of the ice and climbed the city wall.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
One second Firmament demon monarch after another leaped 300 to 400 feet high, then stepped on the ordinary demons. Using the mortal demons as platforms, they climbed up the city wall.
“Block them!” Fan Cheng roared angrily. Over 20 Godfiends worked together to block the demon monarchs and demons.
Ah Chuan. Liu Qiyue was very worried. She could tell that Meng Chuan and company were in a dire situation, but she couldn’t help them! Among the third Firmament demon monarchs, five were skilled with domains. The black-robed spider demoness’s silk was especially tough to pierce! These domains weakened Liu Qiyue’s arrows greatly. Liu Qiyue could only provide limited help to Meng Chuan and company from the city wall.
She could better contribute by killing second Firmament demon monarchs.
Liu Qiyue strung three arrows on her bow and pulled it fully-taut. Phoenix flames engulfed the bow and arrows in her hands. She stared at the three demon monarchs—that were the fastest—coldly.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Three beams of light—that resembled meteors—streaked across the sky. The three second Firmament demon monarchs failed to dodge Liu Qiyue’s arrows. Two died immediately, and the other was heavily injured.
Liu Qiyue continued shooting!
Since they knew Liu Qiyue was here, none of the second Firmament demon monarchs were capable of flight. The demons knew that Liu Qiyue was much stronger than North River Pass’s previous sharpshooter, Wu Zixiu. Even if a handful of second Firmament demon monarchs flew in different directions, it was impossible to exit Liu Qiyue’s range.
Fan Cheng slammed his shield into the ground, creating a massive shockwave. The shockwave enveloped the entire inner city wall. The shockwave killed three demon monarchs that had just climbed up the city wall. The remaining demon monarchs fled in another direction in fear.
With Fan Cheng watching over an area, nobody could come close.
In the other regions, other Godfiends split into groups and fended off the demons.
However, there weren’t enough Godfiends! There were too many demons. The Godfiends’ mission was to block the demon monarchs! The mortal demons jumped down the inner city walls and entered the buffer area between the inner city and outer city.
On the outer city wall, countless soldiers began to attack upon receiving orders. Large crossbow bolts shot out one after another, pinning the demons to the ground. Even so, several demons continued their relentless charge.
Several demons flew into the sky. They dodged the bows and survived the Godfiends’ attacks. They flew to the distant horizon and entered the human world completely. Every time the demons attacked, it was very difficult for humans to stop the flying demons completely. After all, they were only mortal demons. Godfiends couldn’t direct their full attention to them. Often, a lot of demons would fly away.
The attack on the city began to turn brutal. The soldiers, Liu Qiyue, and the other Godfiends, all tried their best to block the demons. At the World Entrance, Meng Chuan and company faced the greatest pressure.
“We have to hold on,” shouted Zhang Yunhu via voice transmission. His expression was somewhat nasty. “If we can’t fend them off, the third Firmament demon monarchs will climb the city wall. Junior Brother Fan, Junior Sister Liu, and company won’t hold out for long. North River Pass will be destroyed. Hundreds of thousands of people will be slaughtered, and these demon monarchs will infiltrate the human world.
“Junior Brother Meng, you are under the greatest pressure. Cast your forbidden spell for half a minute more. Next, I’ll cast a forbidden spell and help you! If you can’t hold out any longer, tell me!”
“Alright,” replied Meng Chuan.
He could tell that Zhang Yunhu was beginning to have a hard time defending against the combined assault of the black-robed spider demoness, three elite demon monarchs, and several ordinary demon monarchs.
Zhang Yunhu had to use a forbidden spell if he wanted to unleash greater strength! Zhang Yunhu was much older than Meng Chuan and company. The older one was, the faster their Godfiend Body would decline. If he used a forbidden spell, it would be even harder for Zhang Yunhu to recover.
Demon Monarch Lion attacked Meng Chuan with two elite demon monarchs again. Suddenly, without warning, a red wind blew out from Demon Monarch Lion’s mouth.
The red wind blew at Meng Chuan.
His Quintessential Essence and Diamond Body was unable to defend against the mysterious red wind. The red wind penetrated his body and invaded his sea of consciousness directly. However, his Essence Soul blocked the red wind completely.
Die. After Demon Monarch Lion blew out the red wind, he cleaved down with his axe.
He was very skilled. In the Demon Realm, some powerful demon monarchs had been slain by this move. They might be able to resist the Soul Bewitching Fog, but they would still be affected. In close combat, just a moment of inattention was enough for him to slay his opponent.
It’s now! However, because Meng Chuan had an Essence Soul—one in the Kinesis stage—Demon Monarch Lion’s trick couldn’t affect him in the slightest. His Essence Soul was stronger than many Marquis Godfiends’, which was why he remained unaffected.
However, to bait the lion demon monarch, he pretended to be affected by the Soul Bewitching Fog.
Demon Monarch Lion swung his mighty axe down on Meng Chuan as he closed in.
Black baneful aura suddenly erupted from Meng Chuan’s body. The incomparably cold baneful aura spread out for hundreds of feet. Demon Monarch Lion’s body was extremely powerful. Although he felt the chill after being attacked by the black baneful aura, he could withstand it. This baneful aura had negligible effects on him.
“You have awakened? Unfortunately, it’s too late!” Demon Monarch Lion swung his axe without slowing down at all.
“What!?” Demon Monarch Lion’s expression suddenly changed. When it seemed like he had struck Meng Chuan’s body, it completely vanished. He had only struck an afterimage!
Meng Chuan appeared ten feet to Demon Monarch Lion’s left. His aura rose far above his norm!
A saber beam instantly appeared in front of Demon Monarch Lion.
Why is it so fast! Demon Monarch Lion was so frightened that his soul nearly escaped his body. He instinctively cast a forbidden spell, using both his arms to block the saber beam, but he knew it would be too slow because they were too close to each other! Meng Chuan’s strike was unbelievably fast. Before the ear-piercing screech from the saber reached Demon Monarch Lion’s ear, the blade tip stabbed into his glabella. The arms that were trying to block were still a foot away. In a life-and-death battle, the difference of a foot was just too great.
No! Demon Monarch Lion knew that it had no other choice. He could only leave his life to his head. His body was very strong, and his skull was even harder. He could easily crash into a hill with his head.
Meng Chuan’s strike was unbelievably fast. Before the saber beam’s ear-piercing screech reached Demon Monarch Lion’s ear, the beam pierced through his glabella.
Demon Monarch Lion felt the beam penetrate his head. He felt a chill on the back of his skull.
His heart turned cold. He understood that he had died at the hands of the human Godfiend named Meng Chuan.
Meng Chuan had fused the Power of Essence Soul with his body and Quintessential Essence. After attaining the Diamond Body, more Power of Essence Soul was used each time he attacked. He could deliver five maximum-power attacks at most.
When Meng Chuan’s Power of Essence Soul fused with his body and Quintessential Essence, his strength would increase by three-fold. He was comparable to a true Marquis Godfiend.
However, he knew that a powerful demon monarch like Demon Monarch Lion could exchange several blows with Marquis Godfiends. Therefore, he took the best opportunity to strike the enemy—when he was closest to the enemy. His saber art was known for its speed! His close-proximity strike caught his enemy off-guard. It was too late for the enemy to dodge.
Not only that, but he also used a forbidden spell! This strike had to succeed! Therefore, he used the Dragon Roar Stance—the attack with the highest penetrating power.
Demon Monarch Lion didn’t even hear the dragon roar. The saber beam pierced his glabella and exited his head from behind.
It was a fatal strike!
