Archean Eon Art - Chapter 193
Chapter 193 – Help
In Gu Mountain Prefecture City, Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue carefully observed and sensed the area, but the prefecture city was completely peaceful. No more attacks happened.
“Just two weak demon monarchs? That’s it?”
The couple was somewhat puzzled. Unbeknownst to them, the scene of Demon Monarch Bear being instantly killed despite having a powerful body shocked the eight-armed demon monarch, Chan Du. This made the prefecture city the only place in the entire Gu Mountain Prefecture to not suffer a disaster.
Meng Chuan felt his token heat up, making him take out his Patroller Token. Two spots on the tokens glowed red. This alarmed him.
Chang Valley County and Gaoyu County are requesting help!
“Why isn’t my Patroller token alerting me about the requests for help?” Liu Qiyue took out the Patroller token and was somewhat puzzled. “We are a team.”
Logically speaking, the two of them should be heading out together.
“There is danger inside Gu Mountain Prefecture. The threat level isn’t high. Archean Mountain probably thinks that I can deal with it alone,” said Meng Chuan. “Archean Mountain also wants you to stay in the prefecture city and protect it. Anyway, I’ll set off first.” Meng Chuan didn’t hesitate to leave. He transformed into a bolt of lightning and left the city quickly.
“Be careful.” Liu Qiyue barely had time to exhort him when she saw the lightning disappear into the horizon.
Meng Chuan rushed to Chang Valley County. His extreme speed allowed him to now traverse over 2 kilometers in a single flash. Ten seconds after he left the prefecture city, he saw two columns of smoke rising from afar.
Beacon smoke? There are demons!
Meng Chuan—who was traveling at high speeds—was shocked and immediately rushed over.
In two flashes, he could see a village fort. Cries could be heard as beacon smoke rose from within the fort. A demon monarch—that was about 80 feet tall and covered in scales—casually swung his huge hammer and destroyed the fort tunnels’ various mechanisms. He crushed the dozens of villagers hiding inside, causing blood to seep out from the ruins.
When Meng Chuan arrived, over a thousand people had already died in the village fort. The casualties had already exceeded 20% of the village fort’s population.
The remaining people despaired as they watched the destruction.
“Demon Monarch, die!”
“Die!” Some held crossbows and fired at the demon monarch. After the crossbow bolts flew out, they were blocked by invisible demonic energy when they were still dozens of feet from the demon monarch.
Mortal weapons posed no threat to second Firmament demon monarchs, much less the third Firmament demon monarch before them.
“Hahaha…” The scaly demon monarch laughed loudly as he continued to slaughter the mortals casually. To him, this was akin to killing tiny bugs. There was no threat at all.
When Meng Chuan saw this, his eyes turned red. He knew that many demon monarchs would enter the human world after the humans had abandoned the small and medium-sized city passes. After this, it would be very common to see demon monarchs engaging in casual slaughter, but seeing it happen in person pained Meng Chuan.
Demon monarchs were supposed to be fought by Godfiends! However, there were no Godfiends stationed here to stop the demon monarch from slaughtering the mortals.
“Die!” Meng Chuan charged over as fast as he could.
The scaly demon monarch sensed something and turned his head, only to see a bolt of lightning arrive.
“What?” The scaly demon monarch jumped in fright. When the demon monarchs had planned the simultaneous attacks, he had chosen to attack a village fort. He had even sent two demon monarchs—that were under his command—to attack another fort and act as a diversion. So why did the Godfiend arrive here so quickly?
The scaly demon monarch immediately brandished his hammers to block the saber beam, but the saber beam was too fast!
By the time the demon monarch raised his hammer, the saber beam had already struck its body, slicing through his chest. The massive, scaly demon monarch split in two and fell onto the ruined buildings. Dark green blood flowed down the rubble, forming a pool of blood around it.
“It’s dead.” The dozen or so people still alive were watching the battle outside the tunnels. When they saw the invincible demon monarch collapse, they couldn’t help but feel excited.
After the demon monarch died, the bolt of lightning disappeared and headed towards another village fort.
This other village fort was attacked by three demon monarchs that were sent by the scaly demon monarch. Their massacring speed was on par with the scaly demon monarch’s. Beacon smoke could also be seen rising from the village. The fort’s inhabitants were naturally unable to defend against the demon monarchs.
Meng Chuan arced by the village fort and killed the three ordinary demon monarchs instantly.
Continue heading to Chang Valley County.
Meng Chuan didn’t stop moving at all as he leaped towards his next rescue target.
When he was high in the sky, Meng Chuan turned to look at the two village forts—that still had beacon smoke rising from them. Both the forts were damaged greatly and had many casualties.
Is this the result of abandoning the small and medium-sized city passes?
Meng Chuan felt an inexplicable sadness when he saw this. He knew that the three sects had made the right choice, but seeing the demons wantonly wreaking havoc made him angry.
I’ll dedicate my entire life to eradicating them.
Meng Chuan’s eyes turned colder.
In terms of numbers, there were far fewer Great Solar Godfiends than third Firmament demon monarchs. Since humans focused on their elites, Godfiends—especially Archean Mountain Great Solar Godfiends—were, on average, stronger than third Firmament demon monarchs.
Places like Archean Mountain, the imperial capital, the state capitals, and many other places that had Godfiends, had begun dispatching Godfiends to prefecture and county cities. Now, very few Godfiends could be seen in the imperial capital, state capitals, and so on. This was because powerful Godfiends needed to guard the various prefectures and counties.
Apart from Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue—a relatively powerful team—Gu Mountain Prefecture had two other Godfiend teams. These two Godfiend teams lived incognito in the county cities.
What? There are actually four Godfiends hiding in this county city?
A 60 foot long black-furred wolf leaped over the city walls and rushed into the county city, causing everyone in the county city to panic. As it began its slaughter, four Godfiends immediately rushed over and surrounded it.
“Demon monarch, you have a death wish!”
A thin youth’s eyes were cold as he cast his cyan thread domain. Countless cyan threads streaked across the sky, enveloped the area, and entangled the black-furred wolf. The black wolf reverted to human form to resist the threads. However, its strength and speed were greatly reduced. Its overall strength had been reduced by 30 percent.
A female Godfiend charged forward with a long spear in hand. A muscular Godfiend—wielding a shield and axe—charged as well. From afar, a skinny, frail-looking Godfiend cast an illusion on the demon monarch.
This Godfiend team consisted of two Great Solar Godfiends and two Indestructible Godfiends! When the four worked together, they could kill third Firmament elite demon monarchs.
“BREAK!” The wolf demon monarch tried to block the spear-wielding female Godfiend whilst being restrained by the domain, but it suddenly felt dizzy. It saw many scenes, and couldn’t help but become confused.
The spear pierced through the wolf demon monarch’s mouth and went through its head completely.
The female Godfiend coldly retracted her spear. The wolf demon monarch died on the spot after having its head impaled.
“I haven’t even attacked yet.” The shield and axe-wielding, brawny Godfiend couldn’t help but laugh. To put it simply, the other three Godfiends had been doing all the work. Only when the demon was suppressed by a domain, influenced by an illusion, and struck by the female Godfiend’s attack, did it instantly die. In terms of head-on collisions, the female Godfiend from Archean Mountain was far stronger than the wolf demon monarch.
“Look over there.” The female Godfiend’s expression changed as she pointed into the distance.
From afar, beacon smoke began to rise. Although it was more than five kilometers away, it was very clear.
“It’s a village fort.” The other three Godfiends’ faces changed.
“Let’s head over quickly.” Under the female Godfiend’s order, they immediately rushed towards the village fort. Their team had to advance and retreat together! They were not allowed to act alone.
Currently, the entire Gu Mountain Prefecture was under attack, but only Meng Chuan and two Godfiend squads were providing reinforcements to the region. There were just too few Godfiends.
