Archean Eon Art - Chapter 187
Chapter 187 – Returning To Archean Mountain
Stunned still, Yang Fang didn’t touch his roasted meat.
“What will it be like when a large number of demon monarchs enter the human world?” Meng Chuan asked softly.
“I don’t know.” Zhang Yunfeng said, “I’ve never experienced such a thing before. All I know is that many mortals will die.”
“When the time comes, demon monarchs will be in all corners of the world. War can happen at any moment,” said Yang Fang. “The number of third Firmament demon monarchs will far exceed the number of Great Solar Godfiends. Of course, our advantage is that we have a large group of Marquis Godfiends. They can exterminate demon monarchs everywhere. Regis Godfiends will also be patrolling the world. Therefore, demon monarchs won’t gather on a large scale. They will definitely scatter and hide.”
“Archean Mountain will definitely come up with a strategy to deal with the demon monarchs,” said Zhang Yunfeng. “Black Sand Grotto-Heaven and Two World Island will also have plans.”
“Let’s just follow future arrangements,” said Meng Chuan. He felt as though the future was shrouded in fog, making it difficult to see clearly.
What did the future hold? In what direction was the human world heading in?
Meng Chuan had no idea. He only knew that he needed to become stronger. With Demon Slayer in hand, he would massacre demons in his wake!
After the Great Relocation Plan ended, Meng Chuan and company waited for half a month before a Marquis Godfiend—Marquis Swallow Mountain—took over Jiang State Capital.
“Have a pleasant journey.” Marquis Swallow Mountain, Dean Chang, and the other Godfiends came to send them off.
The three of them jumped onto the bird’s back. The bird spread its wings and soared into the sky, passing through clouds and disappearing from sight.
“I wonder when we will meet again.” Dean Chang sighed. “It’s really all thanks to Senior Brother Zhang and the others.”
“Even if I were to guard Jiang State Capital personally, I wouldn’t have done it any better.”
For the past seven months, Meng Chuan and company had contributed greatly to Jiang State Capital.
During the large-scale attack that fateful day, the demon monarchs charged into the city began massacring the population. They had suffered great losses back then—over 100,000 casualties. However, even if a Marquis Godfiend guarded Jiang State Capital, they would still be powerless to deal with the situation. In fact, a Marquis Godfiend wasn’t even as fast as Meng Chuan when it came to chasing demon monarchs! The trio’s achievement of slaying the fourth Firmament Skydemon, Blackwater Palace Lord, was very astonishing.
After that, Jiang State Capital didn’t encounter any more attacks.
The bird flew high into the clouds as Meng Chuan and company drank and chatted. With their new orders, they would be separated completely.
After all, with Marquis Godfiends guarding various areas, the three of them no longer needed to be together.
Although some fourth Firmament demon monarchs still lurked, Godfiends never paid much attention while riding birds. Firstly, the world was vast, so the probability of encountering one another was very low. Secondly, a fourth Firmament demon monarch didn’t have the guys to fly for too long. It was too easy for them to be discovered if they did so. Since the Marquis Godfiends no longer had to protect the small and medium-sized city passes, they would be finished the moment they were discovered.
“We’ve arrived at Archean Mountain.” Late into the night, the bird finally arrived at Archean Mountain.
Meng Chuan returned to his cave abode at Bright Scenic Peak and gently knocked on the door.
The door to the cave abode opened, and Steward Liu welcomed him personally.
“My lord.” Steward Liu was rather excited. “Recently, many Godfiends returned to Archean Mountain. I figured that you were coming back. Now, only two old servants clean the residence. I will have the other servants back here tomorrow morning.”
“Oh, is Qiyue back?” inquired Meng Chuan.
Steward Liu was taken aback as he shook his head. “No!”
“Oh? The Great Relocation Plan is over, but she hasn’t returned?” Meng Chuan frowned slightly before walking into his cave abode and instructing, “Prepare some hot water for me. I want to take a bath.”
“Yes.” Steward Liu was extremely happy. He and two old servants handled the upkeep of the cave abode since Meng Chuan had descended the mountain. Meng Chuan’s return delighted them.
The next morning, Meng Chuan arrived at Dao Exchange Peak.
Dao Exchange Peak was a place for Godfiends to gather. Now that a large group of Godfiends had returned, Dao Exchange Peak was even more lively.
“Senior Brother Meng!”
“Senior Brother Meng is here!”
The moment Meng Chuan arrived at Dao Exchange Peak, he realized that it was extremely lively. Several hundred Godfiends gathered here, having a great time socializing. When they saw Meng Chuan, many came to welcome him immediately.
“Senior Brother Meng has greatly boosted the morale of our Archean Mountain. Only three fourth Firmament Skydemons were killed across the three great sects. Senior Brother Meng, Senior Zhang Yunfeng, and Senior Brother Yang Fang joined forces to kill one. Impressive.” A bearded Godfiend laughed loudly. Almost all the Godfiends present were older than Meng Chuan! After all, the younger disciples—who had yet to leave the mountain—were still cultivating arduously. They only came to Dao Exchange Peak three times a month!
All the Godfiends currently at Dao Exchange Peak had just returned from outside. They were rather old, and it was rare for people below the age of fifty to be present. However, Godfiends respected the strong. Meng Chuan’s joint feat of killing a fourth Firmament Skydemon had proven his strength.
“Our Archean Mountain’s Great Solar Godfiends killed two fourth Firmament Skydemons. Black Sand Grotto-Heaven’s Great Solar Godfiends managed to kill only one fourth Firmament Skydemon. We crushed them.”
“Black Sand Grotto-Heaven has always been competing with our Archean Mountain. They really lost to us this time.” Several older Godfiends chatted jovially.
Among the three great sects, Archean Mountain and Black Sand Grotto-Heaven were on par with each other, so they naturally competed with each other. This was a friendly competition. As for Two World Island? There was no need to compare. Two World Island was much weaker than the two sects.
“Senior Brother Zhang, Senior Sister Yang.” Meng Chuan saw his two old friends from North River Pass.
“Junior Brother Meng.” Zhang Yunhu and Yang Xingwu were also quite happy.
The three of them sat down.
“Junior Brother Meng, you really contributed big this time,” said Zhang Yunhu with a smile. “It’s impressive that you can kill a fourth Firmament Skydemon.”
“Don’t flatter me. I was only supporting our Senior Brothers. It was mainly Senior Brother Zhang Yunfeng and Senior Brother Yang Fang that did all the work,” said Meng Chuan immediately. “Oh, by the way, any updates on North River Pass?”
“It’s doing good.” Zhang Yunhu smiled and said, “I have deep feelings for North River Pass. On the way back to Archean Mountain, Xingwu and I took a detour to the North River Pass and saw Marquis Heavenstar, Junior Brother Fan, Junior Sister Liu, and the others.”
“How are Qiyue and the others?” pressed Meng Chuan. Zhang Yunhu had his own bird, so he could go wherever he wanted. Meng Chuan planned on buying one on this trip back to Archean Mountain.
Yang Xingwu smiled and said, “It looks like Junior Brother Meng is worried about his wife. Don’t worry. With Marquis Heavenstar around, it’s very safe. The city’s mortal population has already left. Even Marquis Heavenstar and the others are secretly hiding in the shadows.”
“Hiding in the shadows?” Meng Chuan was stunned.
“That’s right. They are pretending as though they have completely abandoned the city,” said Zhang Yunhu with a smile. “Demon monarchs will enter on a large scale. Every time they come, Marquis Heavenstar and company will kill them all! They are deliberately letting them in before killing them.”
Yang Xingwu said, “According to Marquis Heavenstar, they killed quite a number of demon monarchs in the beginning. Later on, the demons discovered that we were secretly ambushing them. Therefore, they are very cautious now.”
“Don’t worry. Junior Sister Liu will return to Archean Mountain soon,” said Zhang Yunhu. “Archean Mountain will assign us new missions again.”
Meng Chuan nodded.
“Senior Brother Meng.” A voice suddenly sounded. “Senior Brother Meng, your wife is here!”
Meng Chuan jolted to his feet and looked into the distance. Liu Qiyue—who was carrying her bow and quiver on her back—had already appeared at the distant entrance. Clearly, she had not returned to her cave abode and had headed straight for Dao Exchange Peak.
“Ah Chuan.” Liu Qiyue immediately saw Meng Chuan.
“Qiyue.” Seeing his wife appear in front of him, Meng Chuan couldn’t help but feel relieved. He immediately walked over.
