Archean Eon Art - Chapter 324
Chapter 324 – Saber Practice At Night
Meng Chuan’s heart still ached for his wife. After all, she had consumed her lifespan.
“I can also choose not to use Phoenix’s Nirvana,” said Liu Qiyue with a smile. “However, if I had chosen to do that, I wouldn’t have been able to defeat six fourth Firmament demon monarchs with just Marchioness Plum Snow and me. I’d also have been in grave danger of dying. Countless commoners—who we were defending-would have died. As for using Phoenix’s Nirvana, I killed five people easily. Only one managed to escape. When I underwent Nirvana, my insights into fire improved. My Essence Soul improved as well. I believe that in this era, many Godfiends hope to be capable of unleashing such bursts of strength.”
“I understand. You have to be more careful about your lifespan. It’s best if you become a Regis Godfiend as soon as possible,” said Meng Chuan.
His wife had drained over 30 years of her lifespan. In addition to her current age, she was less than ten years away from being 90 years old. Could she become a Regis Godfiend in ten years? Even though his wife had used the phoenix feather to purify her bloodline and had begun cultivating Phoenix Flight, Meng Chuan wasn’t optimistic.
A night passed.
Meng Chuan had a rare good sleep. He hadn’t slept for a single moment in the World Gap.
The sky slowly brightened when he woke up. Meng Chuan and his wife ate breakfast together.
“Marquis Eastcalm?” An old woman arrived. When she saw Meng Chuan and his wife, she couldn’t help but grin.
“Marchioness Plum Snow,” greeted Meng Chuan politely. He respected the Godfiends that were nearing the end of their lifespans. “Thank you for taking care of Qiyue for the past two years.”
“Don’t say that,” said the old woman with a smile. “I was just supporting her. I rely on Junior Sister Liu to kill enemies.”
The old woman very familiarly scooped a bowl of porridge and said with a smile, “I’ve been eating breakfast with Junior Sister Liu for the past two years. It looks like I won’t need to do so in the future. I can spend more time with my great-grandchildren.”
Liu Qiyue smiled brightly.
“It’s been a long time since I saw you smile so happily.” The old woman smiled.
Meng Chuan finished his porridge and stood up. “Marchioness Plum Snow, duty calls. I’ll be taking my leave first.”
The old woman nodded. “Go ahead.”
Meng Chuan nodded at his wife before disappearing into the horizon.
“Unparalleled speed.” The old woman looked up. “He lives up to his reputation.”
Meng Chuan began his daily underground reconnaissance once again. He hadn’t been underground for nearly a year, so he was already somewhat rusty.
Ever since he cultivated the World Roving Dragon Saber, Meng Chuan’s speed had increased tremendously. His underground reconnaissance speed was naturally much faster than before.
Like a swimming lightning dragon, he traversed the deep underground. He kept the Divine Eye of Lightning at his glabella open, and his electromagnetic domain scanned his surroundings. Although he was now faster, he followed the same rules. He spent 12 hours underground
Evening, in the western desert.
A figure soared into the sky. It was Meng Chuan. Meng Chuan flew to the northeast and headed straight for Changfeng City. With his Darkstar domain, he distorted the light around him.
I actually killed 193 underground demon monarchs today. My speed is much faster than a year ago. I can sweep through more places, but it shouldn’t have doubled my daily kill count. Yes, there must be an increasing number of demon monarchs hiding underground. King White Treasure is famous, so few demon monarchs hide underground in the Black Sand Dynasty. Most of them are in the Great Zhou Dynasty and the Great Yue Dynasty.
The demon monarchs hiding in the Great Zhou Dynasty’s underground kept increasing. These demon monarchs didn’t hide deep in the sea because that was too far away. Attacking human cities would be troublesome.
Changfeng City. Meng Chuan immediately swooped down when he saw the city below.
After dinner, Meng Chuan spent more than two hours painting. After that, he began to examine the various ultimate techniques of the lightning lineage. “Ah Chuan, aren’t you sleeping?” Liu Qiyue asked.
“I also need to cultivate. I hope to reach the Dharma Domain realm as soon as possible so that I can become a Regis Godfiend,” said Meng Chuan with a smile. “I need to carry out underground reconnaissance during the day. I won’t be sleeping at night. I need to spend more time cultivating.”
“Can you take it?” Liu Qiyue asked worriedly.
“I didn’t sleep for almost a year in the World Gap. I managed to take it. My body can constantly maintain the optimum state. As for Essence Soul fatigue? I can recover during my daily painting session,” said Meng Chuan with a smile. “Don’t worry. I’ll sleep a little when I’m really tired.”
“Alright.” Liu Qiyue nodded.
In the study, Meng Chuan began to sort out the ultimate techniques that he had memorized. Occasionally, he would write his findings on paper. In order to save time, he simply organized and classified them in different categories.
Speed. It’s an important characteristic of the lightning lineage. Even if they don’t deliberately aim for speed, lightning lineage cultivators will be very fast. They are also fast when attacking. I can draw upon the wisdom of others and fuse it with my ideas to create the moves I need.Although the Heart Intent Saber is known as the swiftest saber art in the world, it’s still not fast enough for me. This is because it values the Yin-Yang Annihilation forces significantly. That ends up affecting its speed. My saber art needs to have my Flash Form of Lightning’s essence be the core. The rest are just auxiliary. I will pursue ultimate speed.
Meng Chuan pondered about his cultivation path. After seeing the purple lightning and painting the Fifteen Lightning Forms, he believed that the Flash Form of Lightning was the pinnacle of pure speed. It was like lightning, like light! Wherever light could reach, the saber could too!
This path wasn’t based on pure speed alone. From the purple lightning, Meng Chuan could tell that when one’s speed reached an unimaginable level, it would contain an annihilative might that could tear through the River of Spacetime. Speed and power didn’t conflict. Many lightning lineage cultivators pursued speed and realized that they weren’t powerful enough. This was because they weren’t fast enough! The faster the saber became, the more devastating the saber strike would be. When one’s saber attack approached the speed of light, it was capable of tearing apart the River of Spacetime.
My conjectured saber art shall be named the Infinite Saber.The Infinite Saber’s extreme speed shall surpass all saber arts in history. I like the World Roving Dragon Saber very much. It’s as unrestrained as a painting in the world. However, it’s still not beautiful enough. It lacks color and isn’t gorgeous enough.
Meng Chuan looked at the saber art from an artist’s perspective. He felt that his World Roving Dragon Saber was still lacking. I’ll build upon the foundation of the Nine Heavenly Forms of Lightning and the Roving Dragon Form of Lightning. I’ll also fuse the Yin-Yang Form of Lightning into the saber art. By fusing the Yin-Yang Form of Lightning, there will be more variation to the World Roving Dragon Saber, adding color to it.
This saber art can really become a brush in the world. Meng Chuan was filled with anticipation. Amongst his two conjectured saber arts, the Infinite Saber art was extremely fast, but there were too few variations. In a life-and-death battle, if one’s speed was restrained, there was nothing they could do. The other saber art had an undecided name, but it was an extremely dazzling saber art. It was even more dazzling and beautiful than the World Roving Dragon Saber. There were more variations than the World Roving Dragon Saber!
One saber art had very few variations, while the other had all kinds of variations. When fighting an enemy, using a combination of the two saber arts would be extremely effective. Furthermore, the second saber art was also a movement technique. This unpredictable movement technique was best for close combat.
I have a direction towards the Dharma Domain realm for both saber arts. Time to begin cultivating. Meng Chuan walked out of the study and came to a small courtyard. He pulled out Demon Slayer and began cultivating in the dark.
