Archean Eon Art - Chapter 231
Chapter 231 – Meeting Yan Jin
Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue saw smoke rising from several places in the distant county city. Three demon monarchs were wreaking havoc and massacring the population.
Liu Qiyue instantly drew her bow in midair and strung three arrows.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Three flame streams streaked across the sky. Liu Qiyue’s arrows were much faster than before. While shocked, the three distance demon monarchs attempted to dodge. However, all of a sudden, the arrows changed directions unpredictably and penetrated the demon monarchs’ heads.
“They are all third Firmament demon monarchs. However, they are very mediocre. They can’t even dodge my arrows,” said Liu Qiyue via voice transmission. “Next.”
Swoosh. Meng Chuan grabbed his wife and traveled to their next destination as he sent a voice transmission. “Qiyue, your archery skills have improved greatly after reaching the Realm of Dao. Very few third Firmament demon monarchs can avoid your arrows.”
The couple worked together.
The nearby county cities were very close to each other. On average, they were only a few dozen kilometers away. Meng Chuan arrived at each city with roughly ten leaps.
Whenever they arrived at a county city, Liu Qiyue shot her arrows! Meng Chuan didn’t need to take action because Liu Qiyue easily killed them.
“They have fled?”
“The demon monarchs have retreated?”
Meng Chuan and his wife rescued seven county cities. After killing 23 demon monarchs, they rushed to other county cities. However, the demon monarchs had already retreated.
“Demon monarchs in seven counties have been wiped out quickly. It’s suspected that a Regis Godfiend is passing by. He’s extremely fast. Everyone in the surroundings, retreat!”
A white-furred lion demon monarch clearly grasped the situation of all demon monarchs in Wu State. He immediately ordered all demon monarchs in the five surrounding prefectures around Gu Mountain Prefecture to retreat.
“The demon monarchs have retreated?” Liu Qiyue discovered that no demon monarchs could be seen in the county city they arrived at.
“We probably killed them too quickly. The demons sensed the danger,” said Meng Chuan. “There wasn’t even a single elite demon monarch among the 23 third Firmament demon monarchs that we killed. It’s odd…”
“A lot of demon monarchs should have entered the human world. They only sent out ordinary third Firmament demon monarchs to attack. The stronger demon monarchs aren’t in a hurry to take action,” said Liu Qiyue.
Meng Chuan frowned and nodded. “It’ll be troublesome in the future.”
Meng Chuan and his wife continued to investigate the surrounding areas. They discovered that the places which had requested for help were now safe. The couple saved many other county cities because they had killed too many demon monarchs in a short period of time.
“The spots on the Patroller token are disappearing one by one.” Meng Chuan and his wife stood on the peak of a tall mountain. They watched the spots on their Patroller tokens disappear one by one. Archean Mountain had withdrawn the requests for help. Clearly, the other places were now safe.
Huh? Meng Chuan and his wife’s expressions suddenly changed. A purple spot suddenly appeared on their Patroller tokens.
Normal requests for help were red. A purple spot was of higher priority than red spots. If one appeared, Patrollers had to rescue the area which the purple spot denoted before they could rescue other areas.
“An emergency request for help! It’s 365 kilometers away in Qian State.” Meng Chuan grabbed his wife’s arm and immediately leaped towards Qian State.
The couple headed west.
Meng Chuan was much faster after reaching the Divine Power realm. The distance of 365 kilometers was nothing to him.
Along the way, they crossed mountains and rivers. The time it took for mortals to run half a kilometer was the same time it took Meng Chuan and his wife to travel over 350 kilometers.
From after—in the wilderness outside a county city—the couple saw four Godfiends fighting six demon monarchs.
“Yan Jin?” Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue were surprised. They recognized Yan Jin at a glance.
Yan Jin had descended from Archean Mountain for several years. This was their first time meeting since he left Archean Mountain.
Yan Jin cultivated the Azure Lotus Divine Body—a transcendent-grade Godfiend body—as well as Icefire Seven Absolutes—a Black Metal Sutra. Therefore, his Nine Mystical Caves test was very difficult. However, once he passed the test, it meant that he was strong enough to survive once he descended the mountain. Cultivating Icefire Seven Absolutes required one to merge two different Sword Souls together. This made Yan Jin very strong. In addition, he had been down the mountain for a couple of years, and his strength had increased since then. This time, he was lucky enough to be chosen to join a Godfiend team.
This Godfiend team was established with Chang Anguo as the core. Chang Anguo was 165 years old this year. He cultivated the Indestructible Divine Body—also a transcendent-grade Godfiend body. He had reached the Realm of Dao and had condensed an Essence Soul. In terms of domain strength, he was on par with Zhang Yunfeng. Once he cast his domain, he could slaughter ordinary third Firmament demon monarchs easily! Even demon monarchs with divine powers would have greatly reduced combat strength.
Chang Anguo was the leader, and the other three Godfiends supported him.
This Godfiend team was only slightly inferior to the elite team composed of Meng Chuan, Zhang Yunfeng, and Yang Fang from back then.
These demon monarchs are really cunning. Yan Jin used his two swords to resist the demon monarchs with great difficulty. We chased the demon monarchs across three county cities. I never expected it to be a trap… To think such a powerful demon monarch team appeared.
The demon monarch team before him was extremely powerful. Among the six demon monarchs, there was an extremely powerful elephant demon monarch. This element demon monarch had the strength of a newly-advanced Godfiend! This elephant demon monarch could withstand the four Godfiends alone!
There were also two demon monarchs with divine powers and three elite demon monarchs. The weakest demon monarch was comparable to Yan Jin.
This demon monarch team was stronger than the team composed of Meng Chuan, Zhang Yunfeng, and Yang Fang.
It’s only thanks to Senior Brother Chang casting a forbidden spell that we can barely hold on. However, despite the domain suppressing them, our defense will eventually crack. We can’t hold on much longer.
The four Godfiends struggled to put up a fight even after casting forbidden Godfiend spells. They had many close calls.
“Someone’s coming.” Chang Anguo sent a voice transmission. “Everyone, hold on! It’s Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue!”
“Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue?” The three other Godfiends, including Yan Jin, felt delighted before panicking.
Could they defeat this demon monarch team if Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue helped them?
“It’s Meng Chuan and his wife.” The demon monarchs also discovered the two figures rushing over at high velocity. The elephant demon monarch shot a glance at them. “Meng Chuan—who specializes in swift saber—isn’t worth mentioning. Just take note of Liu Qiyue’s arrows.”
The elephant demon monarch held a huge pillar in his hand and possessed immense strength. Even though Chang Anguo’s domain suppressed his strength, he still attacked wildly.
Yan Jin and Senior Brother Yu’s injuries worsened every time they blocked an attack. Yan Jin could not help but spit out a mouthful of blood as his arms trembled slightly. However, the two Godfiends were adept at close combat. No one else could take up their roles in close combat.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
High in the sky, Liu Qiyue spread her flaming wings high and shot four arrows simultaneously. Her arrows were guaranteed maximum power even when she shot four arrows simultaneously.
Four flaming arrows streaked across the sky.
“Be careful.” A gray-robed demon monarch was alarmed. After he blinked his four eyes, four golden beams shot out from his eyes to meet the four arrows.
The four flaming arrows drew a magical arc as they dodged the four golden beams. The arrows moved terrifyingly fast as they approached the demon monarchs.
A demoness waved her hands, and countless silk threads flew out. The densely-packed silk managed to obstruct the four flaming arrows. However, the flaming arrows had terrifying strength. They pierced through the silk forcefully, but they were easier to dodge.
Pfft. Only one demon monarch was shot in the arm. The other three arrows missed.
The demon monarch didn’t hesitate to cut off his arm.
“Liu Qiyue’s arrows are much more powerful than expected. Everyone, be careful.” The gray-robed demon monarch controlled the four golden beams to attack Meng Chuan.
Meng Chuan used Swallow Stance and transformed into lightning. He charged down like a ghost.
Three of the four golden beams missed. The last golden beam was struck down by Meng Chuan’s saber.
Boom! Meng Chuan landed on the ground and charged towards the demon monarchs.
The instant he landed, a black-green baneful aura spread out in all directions from Meng Chuan’s body. The black-green baneful aura seemed to have a life of its own as six black baneful aura serpents condensed. These six baneful aura serpents avoided the Godfiends and enveloped the demon monarchs.
The six powerful demon monarchs were trapped within the six baneful aura serpents.
Immediately, three demon monarchs—including a demon monarch with divine powers—were frozen into ice sculptures. They lost their lives on the spot.
The remaining two demon monarchs felt the baneful aura wreaking havoc on their bodies. A terrifying coldness constantly froze their bodies. This scared them so much that they frantically fled. Only the elephant demon monarch could barely maintain 50 percent of his strength when affected by the baneful aura. However, he was similarly alarmed.
His team had been killed by a terrifying baneful aura domain alone?
