Archean Eon Art - Chapter 192
Chapter 192 – Eight-Armed Demon Monarch Chan Du
The demon monarchs present were either towering, ferocious, or charming. They were all extraordinary as they were all third Firmament demon monarchs! After all, second Firmament demon monarchs were not qualified to attend Demon Monarch White Fox’s banquet.
Although the eight-armed demon monarch, Chan Du, was rather powerful, he wasn’t ranked in the top three among the group of third Firmament demon monarchs. Other demon monarchs were unwilling to attack a prefecture city because they knew that powerful Godfiends likely protected them!
“Demon Monarch Chan Du is very bold!” said Demon Monarch White Fox loudly as her eyes lit up.
“Demon Monarch Chan, I’m truly impressed.”
“I’ll leave the reconnaissance of the prefecture city to Demon Monarch Chan.”
The group of demon monarchs praised Chan Du. These demon monarchs were all very cunning. They knew very well how dangerous the human world was! Just the “slaughter” after one exited a World Entrance made them well aware of the fact. They were unwilling to touch the tough nut that was a prefecture city.
“Powerful Godfiends from Archean Mountain, the imperial capital, and state capitals are all guarding prefecture cities.” A green snake demoness laughed. “Demon Monarch Chan, you have to be careful when attacking the city.”
The eight-armed demon monarch immediately smiled and said, “Thank you for your concern, Demon Monarch Greenjade. Among the demon monarchs present, my strength is considered ordinary, but I’m the best at earth escape techniques. Even if the prefecture city has powerful Godfiends, I can still escape underground.”
“In terms of escaping through the earth, you are indeed the best amongst us.” The green snake demoness nodded in approval.
The group of powerful demon monarchs quickly made plans. Gu Mountain Prefecture’s prefecture and county cities would be attacked, and at least five demon monarchs would attack village forts.
“The day the attacks happen is February 1st.” Demon Monarch White Fox glanced at Demon Monarch Greenjade. Without any objections, Demon Monarch Greenjade agreed.
In terms of status and bloodline, Demon Monarch White Fox was supreme. In terms of strength, Demon Monarch Greenjade was the strongest demon monarch present.
Gu Mountain Prefecture spanned 235 kilometers from north to south and 155 kilometers from east to west. Eleven counties—with a population in the millions—laid within the prefecture.
After the demon monarchs entered the human world en masse, young soldiers were everywhere in Gu Mountain Prefecture due to military service. However, the entire prefecture was very peaceful since no demon monarchs were discovered.
Morning, February 1st. The weather was still cold. It looked like an ordinary day, but it would forever be remembered by the people of Gu Mountain Prefecture!
“The three of you split up and attack the village forts. Immediately retreat shortly after the attack begins.” Demon Monarch Wolf commanded three ordinary demon monarchs in a mountain cave.
“Yes.” The three ordinary demon monarchs answered respectfully before leaving the cave silently.
Demon Monarch Wolf transformed into a massive black-furred wolf—that was over 60 feet long. He left the mountain in a blur and ran to a distant county city in the vast wilderness. He stirred the Heaven and Earth powers to conceal himself. One couldn’t notice him moving at such high speeds without careful scrutiny.
Human county city.
A giant bird flew high in the sky as it looked down at the county city before swooping down.
After third Firmament demon monarchs had entered the human world en masse, avian demon monarchs became common.
After all, the avian lineage had a large population in the Demon Realm. The avian demon monarchs couldn’t just sit by the sidelines of the war just because humans captured them as mounts. The other demons wouldn’t agree either. After all, even demon sage descendants had to participate in the war on a large scale.
With so many third Firmament demon monarchs, can we wipe out all ordinary Godfiends of the human race?
Demoness Greenjade transformed into a human woman. She traversed hundreds of feet with every step she took in the wilderness as she walked towards a distant human county city.
At that moment, all third Firmament demon monarchs at Gu Mountain Prefecture began heading towards their respective targets.
Gu Mountain Prefecture City.
Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue were eating breakfast at a tea house. The city in the morning was very lively as people busied themselves in their daily lives.
“The buns at Gu Mountain Prefecture can’t compare to our Eastcalm Prefecture.” Liu Qiyue spoke as she ate. “However, this ginger tea is not bad.”
“Breakfast beverages in Eastcalm Prefecture are like many places—they drink soy milk. Gu Mountain Prefecture is special; they drink ginger tea. I can’t adapt to having ginger tea so early in the morning. Meng Chuan ordered a pot of tea and ate breakfast.
“What’s wrong with ginger tea? It’s delicious and warm.” Liu Qiyue was quite satisfied.
They led a leisurely life in Gu Mountain Prefecture. The two tried to have children, but clearly, conceiving wasn’t that simple! Mortals could spend years trying to have children; likewise, Godfiends also needed some luck.
The couple was very satisfied with their peaceful lives. They even hoped for the world to remain this peaceful. However, the demons that coveted the human world wouldn’t give up so easily. Godfiends like them could only continue fighting.
“Oh?” Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue’s expressions suddenly changed as they looked east.
Ignoring the heat of their Demon Seeking Tokens, they could sense the burst of demonic aura in the east with their normal perception.
“Demon monarchs! I’ll head off first!” Meng Chuan instantly disappeared from the table.
Outside the prefecture city.
Before a bear demon reached the city, it was discovered by the patrolling soldiers outside the city. They shot arrows from afar. The bear demon stopped hiding as it released its demonic energy and charged towards the prefecture city at the fastest speed possible.
I’m discovered before I reach the city. His Majesty gave instructions to hit and run after entering the city. Now that I’m exposed, why don’t I kill some people at the city wall before running?
thought Demon Monarch Bear as he ran.
This bear demon is truly stupid. He was discovered before he even entered the city.
This monkey demon monarch was extremely agile. He silently crossed the city wall that was only 100 feet tall, but the soldiers on the city walls didn’t notice him. The monkey demon monarch landed on a tree’s crown and hid within the leaves. He glanced at the running Demon Monarch Bear outside the city and scoffed. He was prepared to begin the massacre.
Bear Demon Monarch’s head flew up.
Demon Monarch Monkey widened his eyes.
Who killed him? Why didn’t I see it?
Following that, he saw a blurry figure—with a cold gaze—standing in front of him.
A monkey head flew up as well.
Meng Chuan first killed Demon Monarch Bear because he sensed his demonic aura first. When he passed by, he sensed the auras a kilometer around him. Although Demon Monarch Monkey had not released his demonic energy, he was still discovered by Meng Chuan.
Therefore, Meng Chuan converged his lightning and instantly killed the two second Firmament demon monarchs. His speed was so fast that even the demon monarchs didn’t see him.
Before the two second Firmament demon monarchs could attack, they were already dead.
Two second Firmament demon monarchs?
Meng Chuan stood under a large tree and carefully sensed the area. Soon, Liu Qiyue arrived. “Ah Chuan, have you killed them?”
Meng Chuan frowned and said, “Only two demon monarchs were discovered. They are second Firmament demon monarchs. Why would such weak demon monarchs dare to storm a prefecture city?”
Liu Qiyue nodded as well. “Now that medium-sized city passes are abandoned, many third Firmament demon monarchs should be entering. It’s indeed a little strange for two weak demon monarchs to charge a prefecture city.”
In a mountainous forest about 2.5 kilometers east from Gu Mountain Prefecture, the eight-armed demon monarch, Chan Du, stood there with a dark expression. He looked at the distant Gu Mountain Prefecture and saw Demon Monarch Bear’s head flying, but he couldn’t see what happened to Demon Monarch Monkey—who had entered the city.
The bear demon is dead, but I didn’t see how the Godfiend did it. There’s also the monkey demon… It entered the city. Why isn’t there any commotion? How did the Godfiends kill the bear demon? A domain? A sword beam?
The eight-armed demon monarch, Chan Du, shook his head.
I’m no match for the enemy, no matter what I do. I should retreat.
The eight-armed demon monarch, Chan Du, silently entered the ground and quickly fled.
