Archean Eon Art - Chapter 263
Chapter 263 – Underground
Through the clouds, Meng Chuan saw Meng Manor in Jiang State Capital. He immediately dove down and landed at Lake Heart Pavilion in Starmoon Lake.
Liu Qiyue stood beside a peach blossom tree and held a divine bow in her hand. She pulled the bowstring over and over, shooting out Quintessential Essence arrows. The Quintessential Essence arrows skimmed the surface of the lake. When one Quintessential Essence arrow reached a tree-a kilometer away-it drew an arc and pierced through the leaves. Finally, the Quintessential Essence arrow dissipated.
One arrow after another…
In the blink of an eye, more than ten arrows were shot out.
“Ah Chuan.” Liu Qiyue put away her divine bow and smiled as she welcomed her husband. “What did Master say?”
“Master is, of course, very happy.” Meng Chuan walked to a stone table and picked up a plate of dessert. He smiled and said, “Even Origins Returning baneful aura and the Grotto-Heaven Magic Bead have been given to me. I wasn’t willing to take advantage of the sect, so they will take all the passive credit I earn due to my Patroller position for the next 35 years.”
Liu Qiyue wasn’t surprised. She smiled and said, “Doing the math, that’s 20 million credits per year? It’s four times more than what you got when you patrolled the six states. That’s considered normal. After all, Ah Chuan, you should be comparable to King White Treasure at hunting down demons. That’s equivalent to a sect’s total kill-count. Just a fourfold increase in annual passive credit isn’t considered high.”
“Everyone wants treasures from the sect, but where do the sect’s treasures come from?” Meng Chuan said. “They can’t just search for them. For example, Supremacy Luo Tang is guarding Luo Tang Pass. Master is responsible for guarding Archean Mountain. That should earn them plenty of credit, but they haven’t taken any treasures from Archean Mountain. Instead, they offer their services. There are many powerful Godfiends in history who gave most of their treasures to the sect before they died. Only a small amount is left to their descendants. Only then can the inner sect disciples receive plenty of grooming.” “Yes.” Liu Qiyue nodded. “I believe Master and the rest are looking forward to seeing you kill more demons.
Meng Chuan nodded. These two treasures were very valuable to him, but they weren’t anything to the entire Archean Mountain. After all, King White Treasure’s services cost more than that for just per year.
Archean Mountain looked forward to him killing demons en masse!
“Tomorrow morning, I’ll begin killing demons,” said Meng Chuan. “I’ll go out in the morning to hunt them down. I’ll return at night to rest and cultivate. I’ll have to rely on you to take care of An’er and You’er.”
“Don’t worry. Leave it to me.” Liu Qiyue nodded. “By the way, I have something to tell you.” “Oh?” Meng Chuan looked at his wife.
“Last year, You’er and An’er killed Wang Cong in order to save their junior sister. They read the dossiers, remember?” Liu Qiyue said.
Meng Chuan nodded.
“From then on, the two of them would occasionally come to me to read the dossiers. There are indeed some mortal cases in my dossiers, but most of them are information regarding the demons wreaking havoc everywhere. I discovered that You’er and An’er have been working harder in their cultivation,” said Liu Qiyue worriedly. “They’re only 13 years old after all. Have they been exposed to this too early?”
“It’s not too early,” said Meng Chuan. “Junior Brother Yan Chitong joined Archean Mountain at the age of 13. I experienced demons massacring humans at the age of six. In this era, it’s a good thing for them to know more. What they will experience in the future is much crueler than just reading words in the intelligence reports.”
Liu Qiyue nodded. “You’re right.”
The next morning.
“Dad, Mom.” After morning practice, the siblings sat at the dining table.
The family of four sat down and ate breakfast. Meng Chuan smiled as he glanced at his children. You’er and An’er had already reached the Impervious realm, but they still hadn’t achieved Force. To comprehend Force at the age of 13 made one a peerless genius. For example, King Calm Sea’s fifth son, Xue Feng, and Yan Chitong had comprehended Force at the age of 13. Now, these two were Marquis Godfiends.
Meng Chuan couldn’t do it himself, so he didn’t have high expectations for his children.
Of course, You’er and An’er’s cultivation environment was much better than Meng Chuan’s. They had been taught by a Marquis Godfiend-Meng Chuan-since they were young. They were guided with the best material. Liu Qiyue, a Marquis Godfiend, also often taught the children. When Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue joined forces to teach their children, they held high hopes for their children. They hoped that their children could protect themselves during the war.
“I’m going out.” Meng Chuan stood up and nodded slightly at his wife. With a flash, he soared into the sky and vanished.
Liu Qiyue looked at the sky outside. This was the first day her husband began his underground reconnaissance of the Great Zhou Dynasty.
Meng You and Meng An were unaware of what Meng Chuan was doing. They only knew that their father often needed to deal with the demons. Perhaps he was busy slaying the demons this time.
Meng Chuan flew through the clouds at high speed. After reaching the Undying realm, his body became more compatible with lightning, allowing him to increase his speed. In a flash, he could travel 9 kilometers.
Soon, he arrived at the East sea. I’ll use the East Sea as my starting point and begin the reconnaissance. Meng Chuan swooped down and instantly drilled into the ground. With a flash, the tunnel he drilled open immediately closed.
To mortals, traveling underground was an extremely difficult task. It was much easier for Godfiends and demon monarchs. For Marquis Godfiends, it was nothing worth mentioning! The Darkstar domain prevented the soil from touching Meng Chuan. As he flew underground, the resistance from the soil and rocks only reduced his flying speed to 70% his normal speed.
Open. The vertical eye at Meng Chuan’s glabella opened. The electromagnetic domain erupted and expanded underground. Even with the invisible forces of the earth obstructing him, he was still able to probe an area of 1.5 kilometers around him.
Meng Chuan flew downward at high speed, rocks and soil were split apart by his terrifying speed.
At the start, he found underground rivers. Later on, he even discovered underground magma.
Further down, it gradually turned into a rock layer. It was all rocks!
Meng Chuan continued to fly deeper underground forcibly. The rocky layer was extremely weak in front of him.
The deeper I go, the harder the rock becomes, and the more the resistance increases. He flew for about 100 kilometers deep in one breath.
Huh? The scene before him changed. Most of the area which was filled with solid rock now turned into countless ‘rocks’ and ‘metals’ that slowly flowed beneath him.
Meng Chuan continued flying downwards, charging into the countless rocks and metals. As he charged downwards, he could sense countless flowing objects forming an invisible force. The forces of the earth were much stronger here, causing the range of his electromagnetic domain to shrink to about one kilometer.
Meng Chuan continued flying downward for dozens of kilometers, continuing to see flowing rock and metal.
So the underground is indeed like this. Meng Chuan nodded slightly. According to the books, the underground is made of soil and rocks. The further down one goes, the harder the rock becomes. About 100 kilometers underground, there is the liquid mantle. Countless rocks and metals constantly flow here… This is the same for the entire world. The further down one goes, the smaller the rocks and metals.
From 100 kilometers to 2,500 kilometers deep in the ground is the mantle. Deeper than this, the liquid mantle will become more life-like. The liquid rock and metal will seem to have life, like a sentient entity. Here, the resistance is even greater. With such great resistance, a Regis Godfiend will reach their limit after drilling 2,500 kilometers deep underground
Below 2,500 kilometers, the liquefied land’s forces will be even more terrifying. Only those at the Creation Realm can resist the terrifying resistance and go deeper. Even further down? There are no records in the books.
Meng Chuan looked at the surrounding liquid rocks and metal. As for the mantle, it’s constantly flowing. It’s impossible to build a cave abode here. The cave abode will be ripped apart. Therefore, the demon monarchs’ cave abodes are at most 100 kilometers underground.
