Archean Eon Art - Chapter 270
Chapter 270 – Samsara Divine Body
Three days later, Archean Mountain, Impartation Pavilion.
Elder Yi smiled as he looked at the youth in front of him, Meng An. The youth, Meng An, looked similar to his father, Meng Chuan. However, he was less “unruly” than his father, and more composed. His father, Meng Chuan, spent four hours a day painting. His temperament was indeed different from ordinary people, and he was more unruly. Even the way he looked at the world was filled with curiosity. He carefully observed the colorful world and felt the various emotions in it.
Perhaps every grandmaster painter observed the world like Meng Chuan.
Meng An was different. He was a traditional peerless genius! He had an extraordinary physique and had been taught by his parents since he was young. He was not too interested in painting and focused on spear arts.
“Have you made your decision?” Elder Yi smiled as he looked at Meng An. “Archean Mountain’s rules are that you cannot change the Godfiend Body formula once chosen for three years.”
“I received detailed information on the 12 transcendent-grade Godfiend bodies at home. I’ve read in the library for three days. I’m certain,” said Meng An.
“What are you choosing?” asked Elder Yi.
A sharp glint flashed in Meng An’s eyes. “Samsara Divine Body!”
Evening, Meng Manor.
Meng Chuan and his wife sat by the table and ate dinner.
“A letter from Archean Mountain.” Liu Qiyue handed a piece of paper to Meng Chuan.
After receiving it, Meng Chuan said in surprise, “An’er chose the Samsara Divine Body and the Black Metal Sutra, Samsara?”
“I had guessed he would choose a difficult path, but this path is too difficult. I tried to persuade him, but his personality is very similar to yours. It won’t be easy to change his choice,” said Liu Qiyue.
“Among the Black Metal Sutra spear arts, Samsara is recognized to be the most suitable for Samsara Divine Body cultivators,” said Meng Chuan.
Samsara Divine Body. It was the strongest at close combat among the 12 transcendent-grade Godfiend bodies! In terms of physical toughness, it was ranked first. Its strength was second only to the Great Strength Fiend Body. Although the Great Strength Fiend Body was very good when it came to killing enemies, it lacked in the defensive department. However, the Samsara Divine Body’s defensive capabilities could be said to be the best. With the Samsara domain protecting him, the toughness of his body would be terrifying. He could surpass many demon monarchs at the same level. Perhaps only someone who specialized in physical body cultivation like Meng Chuan could suppress him.
However, Meng Chuan didn’t have a perfect defensive domain like the Samsara domain.
“The Samsara Divine Body is the most powerful Godfiend Body in close combat,” said Liu Qiyue. “The Lightning Devastator Fiend Body is difficult to cultivate because of the baneful auras and the demands on one’s willpower. As for the difficulty of cultivating the Samsara Divine Body, it lies with one’s perception.”
“Yes, the requirement for one’s perception is too high.” Meng Chuan nodded. “One needs to achieve five Intents of the five elements and perfectly fuse them into the will of Samsara. Only then can one master the Samsara Divine Body.”
Everyone had their own specialties. For example, some had a high affinity with lightning or fire. It was obvious how difficult it was to comprehend and fuse five different elemental Intents.
“In the books, the Samsara Divine Body was the creation of us human’s Ancestral Master Archean Eon from ancient times. It’s deemed the most perfect Godfiend body,” said Liu Qiyue. “Ancestral Master Archean Eon even created the Black Metal Sutra spear art, Samsara. It’s also recognized as the best spear art in the world.”
Meng Chuan’s heart stirred. Ancestral Master Archean Eon?
With his current status, he didn’t know much about Ancestral Master Archean Eon. He even suspected that Archean Mountain’s Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven was related to Ancestral Master Archean Eon.
“Among the 12 transcendent-grade Godfiend bodies, this Godfiend Body is best in defense, second in strength, and third in speed. It also has a domain. Everything is perfect,” Liu Qiyue praised. Meng Chuan nodded as well. The other Godfiend bodies typically took one aspect to the extreme. For example, the Lightning Devastator Fiend Body pursued speed to the extreme. It was lacking in other aspects. The Thirteen Swordbane Fiend Body was the strongest Godfiend Body at long-range attacks. The Great Strength Fiend Body had the greatest strength. The Phoenix Divine Body granted one a unique ability, Phoenix’s Nirvana. The other Godfiend bodies had obvious flaws, but the Samsara Divine Body, indisputably, had no shortcomings.
“It’s just too difficult to cultivate,” said Meng Chuan with a sigh. “He needs to figure out five different elemental Intents and fuse them into the will of Samsara.”
“Since he has chosen, he can’t change for the next three years. This is Archean Mountain’s rule,” said Liu Qiyue. “Besides, you said that we wouldn’t interfere with his choices. Let him choose himself. It’s most important that he likes it.”
“The path of a Godfiend is ultimately up to the individual,” said Meng Chuan. “Of course, he has to choose what he likes.”
“I hope An’er can master it,” said Liu Qiyue.
Meng Chuan was looking forward to it.
Could his son master it?
The entire world operated as usual. Meng Chuan continued his daily 12-hour underground reconnaissance. When he returned home exhausted, he would paint. Painting was the best way for Meng Chuan to relax. His wife would usually accompany him as she read dossiers or practiced her calligraphy. Thankfully, at Meng Chuan’s level, he didn’t need much sleep. He could take it even if he didn’t sleep for a few months. However, Meng Chuan would still sleep for four hours a day so that he would be in high spirits the next day.
He only had two hours to practice his saber. Of course, once one achieved Saber Dao, the effects of diligent training decreased greatly. One would need to ponder for insights to continue improving.
“Ah Chuan, it’s too tiring like this for you.” When Liu Qiyue saw this, her heart ached for her husband. “If you patrol for ten hours a day, wouldn’t that be almost the same? You can relax a lot more too.”
“I can be extravagant enough to paint every day. I can completely recover the next day. I can last for 12 hours. Furthermore, if I cut my patrol time by two hours, I will kill fewer demon monarchs. Since I have such abilities, I should do my best,” said Meng Chuan. Maintaining the Divine Eye of Lightning for 12 hours was his limit. He maintained the divine power through sheer willpower; it was a form of tempering his will. He would probably injure his Essence Soul if he tried to maintain his divine power for longer than 12 hours. Meng Chuan wasn’t so rash enough to do such a thing.
In the blink of an eye, winter came.
Qin Wu and Luo Tang stood side by side. Archean Mountain Lord and Elder Yi stood by the side of the two Supremacies.
“Despite knowing it’s right, this decision is really difficult to make,” said Qin Wu.
“We have already done our best. Two World Island has decided to do it much earlier than we did,” said Luo Tang. “We also knew that this day would eventually come. It only came earlier than we expected.”
“Yes.” Qin Wu said, “It’s earlier than we expected. This is a war between two worlds. It’s impossible for everything to go as we planned.”
Archean Mountain Lord and Elder Yi listened silently.
“Pass the order.” Supremacy Qin instructed, “Pass the order to all prefecture cities in the Great Zhou Dynasty.”
“Yes,” said Archean Mountain Lord and Elder Yi respectfully.
Moments later, hundreds of avian demon monarchs flew out of Archean Mountain and rushed in all directions.
That night, Meng Chuan was painting while Liu Qiyue leisurely flipped through dossiers.
An avian demon monarch landed and transformed into a lanky youth. He bowed respectfully outside the study. “Marquis Eastcalm.”
“Oh?” Liu Qiyue walked to the corridor.
The lanky youth handed an envelope respectfully. “These are orders personally issued by the two Supremacies.” The envelope flew towards Liu Qiyue.
Liu Qiyue—who was standing in the corridor outside the study-reached out to receive it in surprise. When she opened the envelope, there was a thick stack of paper. Clearly, there was a lot of content. The lanky youth flew up, quickly disappearing into the night sky. An order issued by the two Supremacies? Did something major happen? Meng Chuan walked out of the study in puzzlement, only to find his wife’s face filled with shock.
“Take a look.” Liu Qiyue handed the first letter to Meng Chuan and continued reading the remaining papers.
