Archean Eon Art - Chapter 173
Chapter 173 – Gathering In East City
A blurry figure clad in lightning rushed through the rain, heading straight for Jiang State Capital’s eastern district.
Meng Chuan held a token in his hand. Godfiends are constantly dying in the east? As one of the three strongest Godfiends in the city, he could keep tabs on all the Godfiends with his token. He had just discovered that the Godfiend death rate in the eastern district far exceeded the other regions.
Although his strength was inferior to a Marquis Godfiend or fourth firmament Skydemon, his speed was greater than Blackwater Palace Lord’s. He had already killed all the demon monarchs in the southern region while Blackwater Palace Lord was still travelling through the vast eastern district.
Another Godfiend died in battle? Meng Chuan suddenly sensed a Godfiend—more than 1.5 kilometers away—had perished. His eyes flashed fiercely as he rushed towards the Godfiend.
The strongest demon monarch in the eastern district, Demon Monarch Cat, led two third Firmament demon monarchs and surrounded three Godfiends. It was a three-on-three battle! However, the humans soon lost an Indestructible Godfiend.
Not good. A Great Solar Godfiend, Cheng Ke, looked at the nine Demon Monarch Cat phantoms that had manifested in the rain. Although he had unleashed all his Quintessential Essence and forbidden Godfiend spells, he still felt death approaching. The thin and weak figure behind him—Fu Nuo, another Indestructible Godfiend—was even more nervous. She glanced at their fallen comrade in grief.
“Junior Sister Fu, it looks like I won’t be able to protect you.” Cheng Ke felt disconsolate.
Fu Nuo’s face was filled with determination. “Senior Brother Cheng, every demon monarch we kill counts.”
Cheng Ke held a long spear in his hand. He liked this junior sister a lot, and he had thought that he was strong enough to protect Fu Nuo. He had tried his best to woo Fu Nuo. He had never expected to encounter Demon Monarch Cat and two other demon monarchs in the city’s eastern district.
The nine Demon Monarch Cat phantoms’ claws swiped past Cheng Ke’s long spear and struck his chest. Although Cheng Ke’s inner armor protected him somewhat, he still staggered back a few steps. He spat out a mouthful of blood as a look of terror appeared on his face. “Junior Sister Fu!”
Since he had staggered backward, Fu Nuo—who he had been protecting—was placed in a perilous situation. Fu Nuo—an Indestructible Godfiend that specialized in illusions—was far inferior to the three demon monarchs in head-on combat.
“Die you blasted Mirage Fiend.” Demon Monarch Cat wanted to kill the female Godfiend the most, but the other two Godfiends had been protecting her.
“Female Godfiend.” A rhinoceros demon charged forward with a large hammer.
A demon monarch also hid underground, waiting for their chance to attack.
Demon Monarch Cat suddenly turned his head. Huh? He saw a bolt of lightning in the distant rain approaching them! He could see a blurry figure amidst the lightning!
Lightning Devastator Fiend Body! Demon Monarch Cat’s fur stood on end. Only Godfiends with Lightning Devastator Fiend Bodies were adept at controlling lightning and capable of moving at such speeds.
Huh? The Indestructible Mirage Fiend, Fu Nuo, saw the scene play out.
A saber beam sliced through the rain and struck Demon Monarch Cat. However, the body dissipated into nothingness.
Nine Demon Monarch Cat phantoms appeared as he retreated rapidly. Demon Monarch Cat loudly shouted, “It’s Meng Chuan!”
Only a handful of Great Solar Godfiends had cultivated the Lightning Devastator Fiend Body, and there was only one who was so powerful and used saber arts—Meng Chuan with his perfected Lightning Devastator Fiend Body!
He dodged it? Meng Chuan—who was bathed in lightning—looked at Demon Monarch Cat with surprise. He could sense the strength of Demon Monarch Cat’s aura with his perception domain. Demon Monarch Cat was likely a third Firmament elite demon monarch! However, Demon Monarch Cat’s agility surprised Meng Chuan.
Two blinding saber beams streaked across the sky. One saber beam struck the hammer-wielding rhinoceros demon—who tried to block the saber beam with his hammer—but his hammer was sent flying as he smashed through multiple residential compound walls. The rhinoceros demon coughed twice before falling silent. He had died on the spot.
The other saber beam struck the ground, forming a ravine. It struck the black-robed demon monarch—who was hiding underground—causing him to explode.
Ordinary third Firmament demon monarchs could not withstand a single strike from Meng Chuan.
Not good. Demon Monarch Cat didn’t hesitate to flee. His nine phantoms fled in all directions.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Meng Chuan split into nine figures. They moved even faster than Demon Monarch Cat. Each figure cleaved at one of Demon Monarch Cat’s phantoms.
Pfft. Finally, Demon Monarch Cat’s true body was injured. Demon Monarch continued fleeing again with a whoosh.
Oh? Meng Chuan frowned slightly. Demon Monarch Cat was the fastest and most agile third Firmament demon monarch he had ever encountered. He had extremely tenacious vitality as well. Originally, he thought he could suppress his opponent and kill him in two or three moves, but to his surprise, the other party put up a fierce struggle.
He’s too fast. I actually encountered someone faster than me. He forcefully cracked my strongest Illusory Body Demon Art with his speed. Demon Monarch Cat reeled in anxiety.
Demon Monarch Cat’s expression suddenly changed. Huh? As Meng Chuan rapidly approached and released some baneful aura, Demon Monarch Cat could feel a bone-chilling coldness. This chill only affected him slightly, but what made Demon Monarch Cat despair the most was the saber that appeared in front of him instantaneously. This strike was much more terrifying than the ones before.
The black baneful aura quickly retracted into Meng Chuan’s body as Demon Monarch Cat’s head flew up.
Meng Chuan glanced at the two Godfiends behind him—Cheng Ke and Fu Nuo. “Hurry up and leave the eastern district. Leave it to me.”
“Yes, Senior Brother Meng,” Cheng Ke and Fu Nuo immediately replied.
Following that, they saw Meng Chuan disappear into the rain with a flash.
They were astounded by Meng Chuan’s display of strength. Two third Firmament demon monarchs had been killed with a single strike. Even the mighty Demon Monarch Cat had been killed in the blink of an eye.
As expected of Archean Mountain’s famous genius, Senior Brother Meng. Meng Chuan had been the most famous disciple when Fu Nuo was still cultivating at Archean Mountain.
“Let’s leave quickly.” Cheng Ke and Fu Nuo first settled their companion’s corpse. Ignoring their grief, they headed straight for the city’s western district.
That Demon Monarch Cat actually forced me to use the Power of Essence Soul. If Meng Chuan hadn’t used the Power of Essence Soul—considering Demon Monarch Cat’s demonic spells and life-preservation abilities—he probably would’ve exchanged over ten blows with Demon Monarch Cat before killing him. However, Meng Chuan knew that the Godfiends in the eastern district were being slain one after another. He had to stop the losses as soon as possible.
Of course, he had only fused the Power of Essence Soul with his Quintessential Essence. With his powerful Essence Soul, such a move was not very draining on his reserves.
Meng Chuan searched for the strongest Godfiend killer. As he did so, he killed any demon monarchs he encountered immediately.
“Let’s quickly meet up with Junior Brother Meng!” Zhang Yunfeng and Yang Fang were stronger than Meng Chuan. When the demon monarchs invaded, they immediately left the manor and used their tokens to locate Meng Chuan. They had rushed to the south, hoping to meet up with him.
However, the duo was much slower than Meng Chuan. On their way, they discovered Godfiends in the eastern district being killed one after another. At that moment, Meng Chuan had already finished killing the demon monarchs in the southern district and was rushing towards the eastern district.
“Junior Brother Meng has reached the city’s eastern district.” Zhang Yunfeng and Yang Fang quickly rushed towards Meng Chuan once they confirmed his location.
“There are demon monarchs here.” Yang Fang saw three demon monarchs crazily storming a tunnel and slaughtering mortals.
“Humph.” The white-haired Zhang Yunfeng’s eyes turned cold. The three demon monarchs—that were roughly a kilometer away—suddenly saw white. Countless white threads instantly penetrated and killed the three demon monarchs.
With the Indestructible Divine Body—which was the strongest at domains in the Quintessential Essence cultivation system—coupled with his Greater Master of the Realm of Dao and domain, Zhang Yunfeng was stronger than newly-advanced Marquis Godfiends. He could even kill Demon Monarch Cat instantly! Meng Chuan would have to flee when facing Zhang Yunfeng. He didn’t dare be trapped within Zhang Yunfeng’s domain.
“Let’s hurry up. The Godfiends in the east are dying too quickly. The death rate far exceeds the other places in Jiang State Capital. I’m worried that there’s a fourth Firmament Skydemon or fourth Firmament demon monarch there.” Zhang Yunfeng’s eyes were filled with worry. “If that’s the case, Junior Brother Meng will be in grave danger. We are old, so we have to protect Junior Brother Meng no matter what.”
“Yes.” Yang Fang nodded as well.
The duo followed the token’s indications, transformed into a blur, and rushed towards Meng Chuan.
