Archean Eon Art - Chapter 212
Chapter 212 – Pursuit
Fu Jiao suffered a splitting headache. After the Soul-Vanquishing Spike stabbed Fu Jiao’s Essence Soul, his consciousness rumbled, causing his perception of his surroundings to blur. However, no matter how blurry his vision was, he could still understand the current situation around him. He saw Meng Chuan charging forward and delivering a strike.
“Scram!” Fu Jiao was in excruciating pain. He grabbed the black spear with one hand and swept it over. With a terrifying spear sweep, the void exploded, and an area was reduced to rubble. Meng Chuan phased to the left of Fu Jiao and continued sending his vicious saber strike at Fu Jiao’s neck.
Fu Jiao’s perception of his surroundings was blurry, making it difficult for him to discern Meng Chuan’s strike. All he could do was charge forward with his head lowered, allowing the attack to strike his back.
Heart Intent Saber—Tiger Roar Stance!
Meng Chuan’s strike was ferocious and violent. However, Fu Jiao’s body withstood the strike like a mountain. Many scales on his body exploded as a bloody gash appeared. One could barely see Fu Jiao’s muscles through the lacerated skin, but the wound immediately healed.
What a powerful body. Meng Chuan was alarmed.
Essence Soul mystic technique—Soul-Vanquishing Spike. How can Meng Chuan use the Soul-Vanquishing Spike? Fu Jiao fled frantically after suffering the saber strike; he found Meng Chuan’s usage of the Soul-Vanquishing Spike unbelievable.
“Do you think you can escape?” Meng Chuan caught up to Fu Jiao in a flash with his astonishing speed.
As Fu Jiao fled like a beast, he looked up and saw a human woman with flame wings in the sky—Liu Qiyue. Liu Qiyue is Meng Chuan’s weakness! Two golden beams shot out from Fu Jiao’s eyes after blinking. However, Meng Chuan’s Soul-Vanquishing Spike immediately pierced Fu Jiao’s Essence Soul again, causing his consciousness to blur from the pain.
The two golden beams dissipated.
Forget it. I can’t use any divine powers at all since Meng Chuan can control the Soul-Vanquishing Spike. Meng Chuan can hold me back with his speed. I’m unable to approach Liu Qiyue at all. Despite facing this dire situation with blurry senses, he still understood what he couldn’t do. Therefore, he swept his black spear around as he fled.
Although his Essence Soul was heavily injured and had a blurry perception of his surroundings, he could still maintain basic reasoning. However, he couldn’t execute any mystical moves at all; he could only attack clumsily. Fortunately, his body was very strong; thus, this random sweep still possessed plenty of strength—roughly 30-40% of his full strength.
However, this attack wasn’t able to stop Meng Chuan—who had extraordinary movement techniques.
Shriek! An ear-piercing screech accompanied the spear.
Meng Chuan’s saber art was bizarre and unpredictable. Fu Jiao roared angrily as he brandished his black spear with all his might. “Scram!” shouted Fu Jiao.
However, Meng Chuan’s saber moved unpredictably. Although Fu Jiao’s spear sweep covered a large area, it failed to touch Meng Chuan’s saber.
Fu Jiao suddenly rolled, and Demon Slayer stabbed into Fu Jiao’s back.
After creating a bloody hole, the saber plunged in halfway. A saber beam blasted through Fu Jiao’s body as blood splattered from the wound.
Fu Jiao convulsed slightly. However, the stocky, thirty-foot-tall Fu Jiao continued running with all his might despite being injured by the saber.
Its body is extremely tough, both internally and externally. Only Dragon Roar Stance can injure it severely. Meng Chuan realized what he had to do as he pursued Fu Jiao.
Meng Chuan formed a series of phantom images; they executed the Dragon Roar Stance repeatedly in an attempt to pierce Fu Jiao’s head.
Fu Jiao also knew that his head was a vital point, so he brandished his spear to protect his head. He also lowered his head while fleeing.
Still casting a forbidden spell, Fu Jiao barged forward with his spear. His strike shattered all the buildings, trees, and rockery in his way. However, his injuries worsened. After fleeing for about three kilometers, he charged through a thick city wall and rushed into the wilderness.
He had already been pierced five times by Meng Chuan’s Dragon Roar Stance. Even his heart had been pierced once, causing it to shatter. Although Meng Chuan’s attacks aggravated Fu Jiao’s injuries, only his head remained a vital point after cultivating his body to this stage. He had no other vital points in his body; regrowing a destroyed heart would just take him time.
It’s wrong! All wrong! Our demons’ intelligence is ridiculously wrong. They say that the three Archean Mountain genius youths are on par with each other. However, Meng Chuan is much stronger than Xue Feng and Yan Chitong! His Essence Soul is what makes him monstrously powerful.
Meng Chuan’s talent in Essence Soul cultivation has to be in the top ten in human history. He’s a Great Solar Godfiend with a third-level Essence Soul at the age of 36!
Fu Jiao knew that he had discovered a huge secret.
Meng Chuan had obtained a third-level Essence Soul at the Great Solar realm. What would happen when he became a Marquis Godfiend? What realm could Meng Chuan’s Essence Soul reach when he’s a Regis Godfiend?
In fact, when Meng Chuan attained a second-level Essence Soul a few years ago, Supremacies Qin Wu and Luo Tang made an exception and allowed Meng Chuan to enter Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven! The duo held great expectations for Meng Chuan’s talent for cultivating the Essence Soul. It would be a pleasant surprise for Supremacies Qin Wu and Luo Tang when they discovered that he had attained a third Essence Soul in just a few years.
It will be a great contribution as long as I survive and report this information to the higher-ups. The rewards bestowed will probably be in no way inferior to what I gain from killing two Marquis Godfiends. Fu Jiao was very confident that the Demon Realm’s upper echelons would reward him greatly once he reported this information.
Meng Chuan—who had been chasing after him all this while—attacked again. He stabbed his cold saber into Fu Jiao’s neck. Fu Jiao’s neck was about three-foot-thick. Meng Chuan’s strike tore through the scales and thick layers shielding Fu Jiao’s neck. This attack damaged Fu Jiao’s neck severely.
Fu Jiao gasped in pain. As long as he stabs my head, I’m dead. I don’t have the strength to block his attacks anymore.
As Fu Jiao looked at the vast wilderness, he suddenly dived underground. His surging demonic energy tore through the soil and rocks as he rapidly descended.
Rocks and earth exploded as a saber beam erupted from one of Meng Chuan’s phantoms. His true body rapidly approached Fu Jiao.
Meng Chuan sensed that Fu Jiao’s strength was decreasing due to his injuries. I’ll definitely kill it within ten strikes.
With another thought, the Soul-Vanquishing Spike stabbed Fu Jiao’s Essence Soul once again. The God Vanquishing Strike was the strongest mystic technique of a third-level Essence Soul.
According to the manuals of Essence Soul mystic techniques, death was almost certain when one faced the Soul-Vanquishing Spike without an Essence Soul. Only those with extraordinary willpower could reform their consciousness after it was stabbed, keeping them alive.
A first-level Essence Soul would be heavily injured when pierced by a Soul-Vanquishing Spike. One’s consciousness would be a blur, and they could only muster simple thoughts. As for exquisite moves? There was no way they could execute them at all. They could only attack clumsily.
When a Soul-Vanquishing Spike pierced a second-level Essence Soul, the Essence Soul would be slightly damaged and slightly affected.
Fu Jiao could only attack clumsily; thus, his overall strength was greatly reduced.
Fu Jiao’s head managed to dodge another terrifying strike. The saber ended up piercing his right shoulder, boring a deep bloody hole through it.
Fu Jiao’s right arm strength was immediately reduced by 50 percent. The many injuries on Fu Jiao’s bodies—as well as the damage to his organs and heart—meant that the strength he could unleash had decreased greatly. This allowed Meng Chuan to follow Fu Jiao easily and attack him again and again.𝘧𝗿𝚎e𝓌𝗲𝒃𝑛𝒐ѵ𝗲𝒍. c𝐨𝗺
From the looks of it, I can’t escape this time. Even with his tenacious vitality, Fu Jiao felt despair. He couldn’t see any hope of survival.
A black beam of light flew at high speeds through the clouds. A black-haired elder was within the black beam of light. He was Archean Mountain’s Regis Godfiend, King Luyue. He was the supreme leader of Yue State’s numerous clans. Normally, he guarded Luo Tang Pass.
Supremacy Luo Tang and two Regis Godfiends guarded Luo Tang Pass—a major city pass. Luo Tang Pass neighbored the Wu State and Qian State.
Quick, quick, quick. King Luyue—who was about 300 years old—was extremely anxious. Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue are in danger. I have to arrive as soon as possible.
As an older Godfiend, he placed great importance on the sect’s genius disciples.
I still have 150 kilometers to go. Meng Chuan, Liu Qiyue, both of you have to hold on. King Luyue rushed towards Eastcalm Prefecture’s Peace County City at full speed.
