Archean Eon Art - Chapter 303
Chapter 303 – World Rupture
Meng Chuan and company flew under the dark-red sky.
“We now have to be careful of the demons.” King True Martial had a mild temper, but the glint in his eyes turned sharper when he mentioned the demons. The demons had brought about too great a calamity to the entire human race. “The three major sects of the human race are busy dealing with the demons’ invasion. Therefore, very few Regis Godfiends are sent into the World Gap,” explained King True Martial. “Archean Mountain only sent our team of five. I reckon that the three great sects only sent three teams in total. However, there will be far more fifth Firmament demon monarchs than us in the World Gap. Although fifth Firmament demon monarchs are unable to enter the human world, they can enter the World Gap.”
Meng Chuan’s heart tightened.
Yes. It was possible for the demons to send more than 100 fifth Firmament demon monarchs into the World Gap. The humans could only afford to send a few Regis Godfiends.
“Once both sides meet, the demons will not show mercy,” said King True Martial. “All you need to do is stay beside King Calm Sea and me. In a life-and-death battle, quantity isn’t always better.”
“Yes.” Meng Chuan, Xue Feng, and Yan Chitong nodded.
“Once we fight, just hide under our protection. Don’t charge forward and don’t interfere.” King Calm Sea’s cold voice sounded. “Leave everything to King True Martial and me. You will only be disturbances if you interfere. The fifth Firmament demon monarchs we encounter here are not like the newly-advanced fifth Firmament demon monarchs in the human world.”
“Yes,” replied the three Marquis Godfiends.
In the distant sky, a huge rift suddenly appeared. The distorted rift was more than 50 kilometers. Through the huge rift in the sky, Meng Chuan and company could vaguely see a patch of darkness. The darkness made their hearts palpitate.
“The River of Spacetime is beyond the world membrane,” said King True Martial. “If one’s cultivation realm is insufficient, they won’t be able to see the River of Spacetime’s true appearance. Most Regis Godfiends… can only see darkness.”
“The River of Spacetime’s true appearance?” Curious, Yan Chitong asked, “What does it look like?”
Meng Chuan and Xue Feng were also curious.
As King True Martial flew, he smiled and said, “How should I put it? For example, the 500-kilometer area in front of us looks like normal land to you. However, in my eyes, it’s like a thousand-layer cake. Space-time is mysterious. This 500-kilometer area is just a tiny sesame seed on a layer of the thousand-layer cake. We are slowly flying across this sesame seed.” “Thousand-layer cake?” Meng Chuan and company were puzzled.
“King True Martial is indeed extraordinary.” King Calm Sea looked at the King True Martial, his eyes shining. “In my eyes, spacetime is like an endless tidal wave, chaotic and disorderly. The 500-kilometer area is just one wave. In King True Martial’s eyes, spacetime was orderly.”
“Junior Brother Xue, you have only cultivated for such a short period of time, yet you have managed to touch on the Grotto-Heaven profundity. You are really gifted,” said King True Martial with a smile. “You can reach the Creation realm once your Essence Soul breaks through. As for me, I can only cultivate for another 200 years.”
Meng Chuan, Xue Feng, and Yan Chitong were shocked. They were shocked that King Calm Sea only needed his Essence Soul to break through before he could reach the Creation realm. They were also shocked by the duo’s individual descriptions of the River of Spacetime. One said that it resembled endless surging waves, while the other said that it resembled a thousand-layered cake?
“Oh?” Suddenly, King True Martial and King Calm Sea looked into the distant horizon.
Meng Chuan also saw it.
Two streaks of starlight suddenly fell from a distant rift in the sky to the ground.
“It’s a treasure.” King True Martial’s invisible domain enveloped Meng Chuan and company as they rapidly flew towards the spot the two streaks of starlight were falling toward.
King Calm Sea has nearly half my speed. Meng Chuan was being carried along by King True Martial as he pondered King True Martial’s prowess. King True Martial is slower than King Calm Sea when carrying the three of us along. If he acts alone… perhaps he has 60% of my speed?
In terms of speed, he was the best in the world. King Calm Sea and King True Martial were already very fast among Regis Godfiends. In a flash, King Calm Sea could travel about 4 kilometers. Meng Chuan estimated that King True Martial could travel 5 kilometers in a second. Such speeds were near a Creation-realm expert’s.
As a Lightning Devastator Fiend Body Marquis Godfiend, Meng Chuan had a robust foundation. He had reconstructed his body with nine bolts of heavenly lightning. After attaining an Undying Body, he could travel 9 kilometers in a second.
King Calm Sea waved his hand and caught one of the falling streaks of starlight. King True Martial grabbed the other one.
“Blood Soul Stone?” King Calm Sea looked at the fist-sized, blood-colored stone in his hand.
King True Martial grabbed a slightly larger Blood Soul Stone.
“Two Blood Soul Stones isn’t too bad.” King True Martial smiled at Meng Chuan and company. “You almost never see it in the human world. However, when a world is born, Blood Soul Stones are common. These two Blood Soul Stones can be used as raw materials for the Godfiend Blood Pool. It’s enough for tens of thousands of Godfiends to pass the Life-and-Death juncture.”
“What? Just these two pieces can allow 10,000 Godfiends to pass the Life-and-Death juncture?” Yan Chitong exclaimed.
Meng Chuan and Xue Feng were shocked as well.
“It’s not just the Godfiend Blood Pool that nurtures Godfiends. There are also many other resources,” said King True Martial. “There are tens of thousands of Godfiends in the world now. Only a few thousand have entered the three major sects. To gain powerful Godfiends, one has to nurture geniuses all the way. This consumes way more resources.”
Meng Chuan and company nodded. Meng Chuan thought about what he had consumed. He had consumed pills, spirit fruits, baneful auras, and so on. All of these were much more valuable than what he had used for his breakthrough at the Godfiend Blood Pool.
“However, the Godfiend Blood Pool is also a foundation of the human’s Godfiend cultivation system. Therefore, the value of these two Blood Soul Stones is more than 100 million credits,” said King True Martial with a smile. “This is the first time a World Gap has formed in our human world’s history. What our Archean Mountain wants… isn’t just two Blood Soul Stones.” King Calm Sea nodded slightly. The intelligence they received was much more than the three Marquis Godfiends. They shouldered greater responsibilities and needed to seek out treasures that were even more precious.
The five continued flying forward. After flying for thousands of kilometers, Meng Chuan and company were somewhat shocked as they took in the scene in front of them.Whoosh! A huge, dark vortex appeared in the distance. The world membrane twisted around the vortex. The further the world membrane was from the vortex, the stabler it became.
The massive dark vortex caused King True Martial to stop and quietly watch. King Calm Sea, Meng Chuan, and company were shocked, but they couldn’t see anything.
King True Martial watched in a daze for a few minutes before coming to his senses. He smiled apologetically and said, “I was distracted. The World Gap is still in its formation phase, and the world membrane here is extending. However, this place is not suitable for your cultivation. Let’s continue.”
The five of them continued flying, far away from the world membrane’s dark vortex.
Another ten minutes passed.
Hua Hua Hua Hua!
The area in the distance was completely fractured! There was no path in front of them, only darkness. In the darkness, one could see purple lightning constantly striking down; it was like a giant tree’s branches but formed out of boundless lightning. It was incomparably astonishing.
When the lightning struck down, black and white streams of energy stirred up dark energy. They transformed into a multi-colored world, which then turned into a colorful world membrane. The world membrane constantly stretched out, and the fractured world was slowly expanding itself. This… Meng Chuan and company were stifled.
