Archean Eon Art - Chapter 236
Chapter 236 – Phoenix Nirvana
Meng Chuan and his wife were long accustomed to acting as reinforcements. They had stayed in Gu Mountain Prefecture City for nearly six years. During this period, they had two children-Meng You and Meng An. The number of rescues they did was uncountable. This was especially so in the past year.
They were used to rescuing people, and this rescue mission seemed normal.
Phew. Meng Chuan and his wife rushed to Eastcalm Prefecture with all their might. They did so every time because the faster they arrived, the more likely they could kill demon monarchs and save more people.
Liu Qiyue looked at her husband’s face and couldn’t help but smile. The couple had long come to a decision-they would fight on the battlefield and slay demons all their lives until they died. Although they had seen many mortals and Godfiend teams die, they continued to enjoy every day. They knew they might perish in battle, but she continued hunting down demons with her husband.
“Zhenyou County City is just ahead,” said Meng Chuan suddenly. “Mmm.” Liu Qiyue stared ahead intently.
As they approached, Liu Qiyue saw three demon monarchs wreaking havoc in Zhenyou County City. They were just second Firmament demon monarchs, but mortals were unable to put up a fight.𝘧𝗿𝚎e𝓌𝗲𝒃𝑛𝒐ѵ𝗲𝒍. c𝐨𝗺
“The demon monarchs haven’t left yet.” Liu Qiyue instantly held her divine bow and pulled the bowstring taut. Three flame-condensed arrows rapidly shot into the distance.
The three flame arrows were much faster than Meng Chuan. They arrived far away in the blink of an eye. The three ordinary demon monarchs were unable to dodge Liu Qiyue’s arrows and died on the spot.
Zhenyou County City was located in Eastcalm Prefecture.
Although Meng Chuan and his wife were in charge of an area-nearly the size of an entire state—they prioritize certain areas. They focused more on the areas around Gu Mountain Prefecture and Eastcalm Prefecture. Therefore, Eastcalm Prefecture’s county cities were still relatively fine. Zhenyou County City still had a population of roughly 70,000 to 80,000. It was considered a rather prosperous, populated county city.
When county city residents discovered demon monarchs, they frantically fled into tunnels. Like always, they waited for Godfiends to arrive. They only came out when the all-clear was given.
“They came really quickly.” Greater Demon Monarch Blackrock stood on a street roughly half a kilometer away from the three second Firmament demon monarchs. However, he had completely distorted the light around it, making it impossible to see him with the naked eye. He had completely converged, so even those with Essence Souls couldn’t sense his aura unless they were within a certain range.
Blackrock smiled as he raised his head to watch the two figures in the sky. Three flame arrows shot through the air like meteors, killing the three second Firmament demon monarchs.
“From the looks of it, they might not necessarily land in the county city.” Blackrock nodded slightly. “This distance is enough.”
Blackrock waved his hand, and the azure dragon sculpture appeared. As a fourth Firmament demon monarch, he only needed half a month to refine the Dragonwater Domain completely. After doing so, he then proceeded to deal with Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue.
“Rise.” With the azure dragon sculpture in hand, Blackrock infused his demonic energy into it, instantly activating the domain.
“Oh?” Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue’s expressions changed. The sensed a terrifying demonic force erupting in the county city at the same time.
Following that, he noticed the changes in the surroundings.
The Heaven and Earth powers were stirred endlessly, transforming into turbulent waves that filled the area.
“Be careful.” Meng Chuan immediately activated his baneful aura domain, and Liu Qiyue released flames from her body to fend off the waves.
Rumble… The waves in midair gathered like divine dragons as they struck at Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue.
Even though Meng Chuan’s baneful aura froze some of the surging waves, they still broke through his baneful aura domain easily. They also broke past Liu Qiyue’s phoenix flames and surged towards Meng Chuan and his wife.
Meng Chuan immediately executed the Red Lotus Stance to block the rest of the waves.
The Dragonwater Domain was centered around Blackrock. The Dragonwater Domain spanned a massive 2.5-kilometer area. An endless flood of water appeared within this region as waves swept through the city. The Dragonwater Domain destroyed about a fifth of Zhenyou County City. The waves easily destroyed the city wall as it ravaged the buildings and flooded the tunnels. The people hiding inside the tunnels died on the spot.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Everything within the Dragonwater Domain was destroyed.
“Mom, Mom, I’m afraid.” Hearing the rumbling sounds outside, a child hugged his mother. His mother held her husband’s hand tightly.
“The Godfiends will come and save us,” consoled an elder.
Following that, the tunnel completely flooded. The dozens of people inside revealed looks of despair before the waves killed them.
Meng Chuan’s Red Lotus Stance barely protected his surroundings and his wife.
Following that, the two of them realized what had happened. They were trapped within a massive water domain that spanned a diameter of 5 kilometers. They could see many destroyed buildings around them. With his Essence Soul perception domain, he could sense the auras of many mortals. However, the city wall, buildings, and tunnels within the Dragonwater Domain had been destroyed! Everybody within those tunnels was killed.
Nearly 20,000 people died in the blink of an eye. This made Meng Chuan and his wife feel pain and anger.
They looked down. Only three people stood alive in the Dragonwater Domain: Meng Chuan, Liu Qiyue, and Greater Demon Monarch Blackrock.
“It’s a fourth Firmament demon monarch,” said Meng Chuan via voice transmission. “Qiyue, leave this domain first. Then, support me with your archery. Let’s join forces and kill it.”
“Alright.” Liu Qiyue’s killing intent rose.
Blackrock looked up and grinned. Following that, he shot into the sky and headed straight for the couple.
“I’ll send you out of this domain first.” Meng Chuan charged out of the Dragonwater Domain with his wife.
Waves surged over.
Meng Chuan might’ve withstood the terrifying impact, but his wife definitely couldn’t! Meng Chuan had no choice but to execute Red Lotus Stance to block the waves! As a result, Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue’s speed drastically decreased. Their speed dropped to about 10 to 20 percent. Blackrock was naturally much faster than them as he quickly rushed towards them. This domain is too powerful. Even my baneful aura can’t stop it. Meng Chuan turned anxious when he saw this. His wife was only a Great Solar Godfiend sharpshooter. It would be very dangerous for Liu Qiyue if a fourth Firmament demon monarch came close to her.
Liu Qiyue was already holding three arrows. She drew her bow and shot at the charging Blackrock.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Three streaks of light tore through the air. However, turbulent waves surged through the domain, striking the three streams of light. The arrows managed to pierce through the waves at the cost of greatly decreased power. After piercing through the waves, the arrows moved slower than Blackrock.
“It’s here.” Liu Qiyue’s expression changed. “This domain is moving. It’s centered around this greater demon monarch.”
Meng Chuan also noticed the Dragonwater Domain moving as Blackrock rushed towards them. Wherever Blackrock moved, the Dragonwater Domain would follow; thus, destroying the city wall, buildings, and mortals.
“Also, we’re even further away from the domain boundary now. We’re roughly 2.5 kilometers away.” Liu Qiyue looked down at the destroyed county city. Without holding back, she unleashed the power of her phoenix bloodline with a single thought. Instantly, flames erupted from her body. The power of her flames left Meng Chuan extremely alarmed.
His wife’s eyes glowed red as flames wreathed around her body. Her strength was now not inferior to the fourth Firmament demon monarch.
“Qiyue.” Meng Chuan understood that his wife had cast Phoenix’s Nirvana.
The cost of casting Phoenix’s Nirvana was her lifespan.
“Ah Chuan, it has to be used eventually. I’ll give it a try first.” Liu Qiyue smiled as she looked at her husband. The terrifying flames spread 1000 feet around her as she protected Meng Chuan from the Dragonwater Domain’s waves.
On one side were flames, and on the other side-waves of water.
The two clashed loudly.
Fourth Firmament demon monarch. Liu Qiyue held her divine bow as she strung an arrow.
