Archean Eon Art - Chapter 180
Chapter 180 – Turned To Dust
Just as he moved 2,000 feet to the side, Meng Chuan saw the black demon core explode.
The demon core contained the cultivation of a fourth Firmament Skydemon. The moment it exploded, everything within 1000 feet was reduced to dust. Thankfully, Zhang Yunfeng’s domain suppressed the explosion as much as possible. Otherwise, the destructive power would be much greater.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Seven black streams of water frantically fled in all directions. Although they were slightly affected by the explosion, the impact at the explosion’s periphery was very small. The demon core’s explosion was most intense in the center.
The demon core forced them to hide far away. I even produced embodiments to aid in my retreat. Meng Chuan won’t be able to find my true body immediately. I might be able to escape. Blackwater hid in a black stream of water as he frantically fled.
You want to flee? With a thought, the white-haired elder, Zhang Yunfeng, summoned nine sword beams in the white domain. The nine sword beams pursued the seven black streams of water. Zhang Yunfeng was extremely confident. My Nine Absolute Sword Formation isn’t very powerful, but it can still destroy your embodiments.
Although he was mainly skilled in domains, he had figured out the Nine Absolute Sword Formation via his domain. The swords were condensed from Quintessential Essence. The Nine Absolutes Sword Formation also had strength close to that of a Marquis Godfiend.
What? Blackwater was alarmed.
The sword beams pursued the black streams of water. In the blink of an eye, six black streams of water dissipated. Only the black stream that hid Blackwater Palace Lord’s true body remained, slowly distorting to reveal his body.
What do I do? What do I do? Blackwater Palace Lord had detonated his demon core. His embodiments had been seen through. He reeled in anxiety. How could his speed compare to Meng Chuan’s speed?
“Skydemon, a year from today, it will be your death anniversary!” Meng Chuan quickly rushed over with Yang Fang.
Water Escape! In his panic, Blackwater Palace Lord had no other choice but to use the river to escape.
He frantically rushed towards the nearest river.
Within Zhang Yunfeng’s domain, the chances of Water Escape being successful were slim, but it was Blackwater Palace Lord’s only option.
“Be careful. Blackwater Palace Lord is Blackwater lineage’s most powerful expert. He’s best at escaping in water,” warned Meng Chuan immediately via voice transmission.
“Don’t worry.” Zhang Yunfeng was confident. “I won’t make such a mistake.”
The nearest river was about 500 feet wide. It was a relatively wide river in the city.
Before Meng Chuan and Yang Fang arrived in front of Blackwater Palace Lord, Blackwater Palace Lord charged! His body transformed into a black stream of water as he pounced towards the raging river.
Swoosh! The river in front of him suddenly parted. Blackwater Palace Lord failed to touch the water when he jumped towards the river.
Meng Chuan was the first to catch up. A saber beam had already swept over.
Blackwater Palace Lord glared at the parted river angrily. With his remaining hand holding a Water Splitter, he barely managed to fend off Meng Chuan’s saber beam. Without his demon core, his strength dropped drastically. He found it even more difficult to deal with Meng Chuan. At that moment, he barely managed to block two strikes before lunging at the river. He even allowed Meng Chuan’s saber to stab into his thigh as he transformed into water and successfully entered the river.
I’m in. Blackwater Palace Lord plunged into the river and felt a sliver of hope. Water Escape! Escape!
With the water escape technique, his speed increased several times. But suddenly, he was astonished to discover that this half-kilometer river floated up. Furthermore, the water had been divided into 18! Some divisions were only tens of feet long, whilst the longest was roughly 300 feet long. The divided river floated in mid-air as they were split apart by Zhang Yunfeng’s domain.
The black liquid formed by Blackwater Palace Lord was hidden within one of the portions. He couldn’t escape into the other portions.
“You still wish to escape in my domain?” Zhang Yunfeng rapidly approached him with confidence in his eyes.
He diced up the segment that contained Blackwater Palace Lord, forcing Blackwater Palace Lord to reveal himself.
“Die.” Yang Fang and Meng Chuan attacked again.
“No—” Blackwater revealed a look of despair. He had lost most of his strength after detonating his demon core. He was barely able to deal with Meng Chuan when suppressed by the domain. His lacking strength against Yang Fang didn’t need further exposition.
In two exchanges, he narrowly dodged two attacks.
Blackwater Palace Lord failed to dodge the next axe swing. It swept across his waist and sliced through his body!
Blackwater Palace Lord’s upper and lower body separated.
“Freeze.” He immediately controlled his body, making his lower and upper body fly towards one another in a bid to reconnect. With his attainments in his body cultivation, he had tenacious vitality. Unless a vital point—like the head—was struck, he wouldn’t die so easily. “Fix.”
Zhang Yunfeng stood by the side, and with a thought, the vast white domain bound Blackwater Palace Lord’s lower and upper body, preventing them from reconnecting.
Pfft. A saber beam flashed from behind, crossing 100 feet. It pierced through the back of Blackwater Palace Lord’s head and exited from his glabella!
Blackwater Palace Lord’s eyes widened. At this moment, numerous scenes surfaced in his mind…
That night, it was raining heavily. He slaughtered his enemy’s entire family. He left corpses strewn on the ground as he laughed maniacally in the heavy rain. He eventually became a Skydemon during a competition between Skydemon Sect disciples.
Skydemons cultivated imperfect formulas. Blackwater Palace Lord forged his cultivation path through trial and error. He even forced his fellow disciples to carry out experiments, thus eliminating the incorrect methods. This allowed him to constantly grow stronger, leading to his rise as Blackwater lineage’s strongest expert.
Only when I’m alive will the world have meaning. When I’m dead! Who cares what happens!
Blackwater Palace Lord became a fourth Firmament Skydemon and one of the world’s truly powerful figures. At that moment, he yearned to stand under the sun and truly rule over countless citizens. He did not want to hide in the darkness all the time.
One day, the demons’ Imperial Lord sent the Demon Sacred Monument from beyond the heavens to the Skydemon Sect. The promise engraved on it allowed him to see hope.
Humanity would become one of the demons’ Hundred Races. Ten percent of the world’s territory would be designated to the Skydemon Sect and would rule over it forever. The Skydemon lineage would be the only cultivation system for humans. As the leader of one of the seven lineages, Blackwater Palace Lord would become one of the humans’ rulers.
He saw hope. He knew that this was his goal for the future.
The saber tore through Blackwater Palace Lord’s glabella.
Blackwater Palace Lord felt his body turn cold as his consciousness began to dissipate. His life finally came to an end. Following that, he felt his Essence Soul and flesh being devoured crazily. His consciousness sank into the endless darkness…
Mmm? When Demon Slayer pierced Blackwater Palace Lord’s head, he discovered that Demon Slayer was beginning to devour the Skydemon’s body crazily. Even his lower body was being devoured. Blood-colored waves constantly surged into Demon Slayer. Ever since he obtained Demon Slayer, apart from Demon Monarch Lion, Blackwater Palace Lord was the second person Demon Slayer took the initiative to absorb.
In just a few seconds, Blackwater Palace Lord was reduced to nothingness. He vanished from the world. All that was left were the Water Splitters and his other artifacts.
Meng Chuan, Yang Fang, and Zhang Yunfeng stood together. They stopped their forbidden Godfiend spells and watched Blackwater Palace Lord dissipate.
“He’s dead?” Yang Fang whispered softly. He still found it unbelievable despite killing Blackwater Palace Lord.
“He’s dead. My Demon Slayer completely devoured him,” said Meng Chuan.
“He’s been reduced to dust,” said Zhang Yunfeng.
