Archean Eon Art - Chapter 357
Chapter 357 – Way Of Life
Meng Chuan’s expression gradually turned solemn as he read the letter.
“Ah Chuan, what did Dad say in the letter?” asked Liu Qiyue.
Meng Chuan silently handed the letter to his wife. Liu Qiyue received the letter in puzzlement. Her expression couldn’t help but change after reading it. “Dad has broken through to the Great Solar realm, and he wants to become a Patroller Godfiend?”
“He has already reported it to Archean Mountain. Arrangements should be made in the next few days,” said Meng Chuan softly. “I know my father’s temper. Before meeting my mother, he served in the city pass for ten years. When I was young, he even secretly carried out the Demon Annihilation Guild’s missions without me knowing. He experienced life-and-death battles time and time again. My father is bent on doing something once he’s decided.”
“All these years, my father has been an Earth Net Godfiend due to his strength. He borrowed credits from me previously because he wanted to become a Great Solar Godfiend,” said Meng Chuan. “The threshold for a Patroller is to be a Great Solar Godfiend. The moment my father succeeded, he immediately reported it to Archean Mountain.”
Liu Qiyue couldn’t help but say, “There are so many clansmen in the Meng family. Dad needs to preside over them.”
“Such words can’t convince Dad,” said Meng Chuan. “Dad has long resigned from his position as clan leader. The Meng family now has another clan leader and Elders. Even without my father presiding over the clan, it won’t affect the Meng family much.”
“What do you plan on doing?” Liu Qiyue looked at Meng Chuan.
Meng Chuan said, “Meet him.”
In the same Jiang State Capital, Meng Manor.
Meng Dajiang and Liu Yebai lived in neighboring courtyards. At that moment, Meng Dajiang sat alone in his courtyard. There was a pile of items on the stone table. He carefully inspected them. These were the weapons he needed to bring when he patrolled the wilderness.
He smiled as he inspected them. He was in a good mood.
Oh? Meng Dajiang looked up and saw a young man land in the yard. It was his son, Meng Chuan. Meng Chuan had concealed his aura, changing it to be of a Marquis Godfiend’s.
“Chuan’er.” Meng Dajiang stood up happily. This was the greatest pride in his life-his son-Meng Chuan!
As he had watched this baby slowly grow up, he dedicated his life to teaching and protecting Meng Chuan. Unknowingly, he had become the most important existence in his life. However, the baby, the youth… had already grown up. He no longer needed him for shelter. He could spread his wings and fly on his own.
“Dad.” Meng Chuan looked at his father. It had been a few years since he last saw his father. He wished that he could split a portion of his time so that he could see his father. His wife’s identity as Jiang State Capital’s guardian Godfiend had to be kept a secret. Due to this, he hadn’t seen his father in a few years.
“I heard that guardian Godfiends are not allowed to leave the city they are guarding. You don’t have to visit me,” said Meng Dajiang immediately as he recalled Archean Mountain’s rules.
“Dad, you know that I’m the fastest in the world. I’m not a guardian Godfiend. I’m in charge of rescuing people. I can run all over the world,” explained Meng Chuan with a smile.
Meng Dajiang understood and nodded. “Then you’re very busy. Why are you here to see
“Dad, do you plan on becoming a Patroller Godfiend?” asked Meng Chuan.
“Yes, Archean Mountain has agreed. They will provide me with orders in a few days,” said Meng Dajiang. “Over the past few years, many Patrollers have died. Archean Mountain lacks manpower.”
Meng Chuan looked at his father. “Dad, I won’t persuade you, but you have to be careful.”
In this era, who could escape the call of duty? King Calm Sea’s children were also fighting. His father, mother, and wife were all participating in the war. Even his childrenMeng An and Meng You-would participate in the war in the future.
“Hahaha… I was fighting demons before you were even born. Do you need to teach me things about the battlefield?” Meng Dajiang chuckled. “Speaking of which, I taught you your saber techniques.”
“Yes, you laid the foundations for me.” Meng Chuan smiled and nodded.
“That’s right. Back then, I had to raise you all on my lonesome. Later, I had to look after the family clan. I then had to care for You’er and An’er,” said Meng Dajiang. “However, ever since You’er and An’er went up the mountain, I’ve been completely free. After seeing how the war has escalated, I feel anxious. However, I was an Indestructible Godfiend. I wasn’t even eligible to become a Patroller Godfiend.”
“But I’ve finally broken through and reached the Great Solar realm. I can become a Patroller and slay demons,” said Meng Dajiang with a smile. “I feel like I’m alive again. I feel like I’ve returned to my youth. I’m filled with energy!”
Meng Chuan listened. He could sense his father’s fighting spirit boiling.
“I’ll head out for a while. I’ll be back later,” said Meng Chuan.
“Alright.” Meng Dajiang nodded and watched his son disappear.
Meng Chuan stepped on the Bloodblade Disc and changed his appearance with the Mask of Illusion. He flew towards Archean Mountain at high speed.
I can’t stop Father, but I can make preparations for him. I can exchange credits for better weapons and treasures and give them to him.
His journey didn’t take long, but it did take him some time to choose the treasures carefully.
An hour later, Meng Chuan returned to Jiang State Capital. “Dad, this is a storage bag. It has a house-sized space. Many items you carry can be placed inside.” Meng Chuan took out the treasures and introduced them. “This is a very special treasure—Blood Shadow Armor. It can fuse with one’s flesh and blood. The stronger one’s body is, the more useful it will be. With the Blood Shadow Armor, your strength should increase by several times. Your defense will be even better.”
Meng Chuan took out the treasures one by one.
Meng Dajiang couldn’t help but say, “Ah Chuan, we should use all these treasures on the most suitable person.”
“Great Solar Body Tempering Godfiends are very rare. These treasures suit you very well,” said Meng Chuan with a smile. “Furthermore, they aren’t that precious. After all, they are treasures for Great Solar Godfiends.” “I’ve seen these treasures in the exchange booklet. They require quite a lot of credits,” said Meng Dajiang.
“It’s really not much,” said Meng Chuan, assuaging his worries.
Archean Mountain didn’t have the ability to arm all the patrolling Godfiends. For example, Archean Mountain only had eight Blood Shadow Armors. They were forged by a Regis Godfiend, who cultivated a Sanguine Divine Body. They paid a huge price, only to later discover that they provided limited help to Marquis Godfiends. But to use them on Great Solar Godfiends? The benefit-cost ratio was too low.
This was because one Blood Shadow Armor cost 30 million credits! As a Great Solar Body Tempering Godfiend, this treasure suited Meng Dajiang very well. A typical Great Solar Godfiend wouldn’t be able to produce the same results with the armor as Meng Dajiang would After spending more than 50 million credits on different treasures, his father now had the strength of a newly-advanced Marquis Godfiend. His life-preservation means had improved greatly. “Dad, these were exchanged using my credits,” said Meng Chuan with a smile. “Besides, the stronger you are, the more demon monarchs you can kill and save. Am I right?”
Meng Dajiang hesitated for a moment before nodding with a smile. “Alright, I’ll accept it.”
Outside Jiang State Capital.
Meng Chuan and Liu Yebai sent Meng Dajiang
“I hate myself for not reaching the Great Solar realm. Otherwise, I would’ve gone with you.” Liu Yebai hugged his good friend. After letting go, he sighed and said, “You were clearly on par with me, but you ended up becoming a Great Solar Godfiend? I can’t believe it.”“You won’t be envious.” Meng Dajiang smiled. Two demon servants were beside him. Every Patroller Godfiend would be paired with two demon servants. If a demon servant died in battle, although it would be troublesome to recover from the loss, their losses could be slowly recouped with time. If a Patroller Godfiend died in battle, a new Godfiend was needed.
“Ah Chuan, relax. Smile more.” Meng Dajiang looked at his son. “The fact that your father can become a Patroller Godfiend is something worth celebrating.”
Am I happy? Meng Chuan wondered… Patroller Godfiends… Their job was pretty much permanent. Even if Meng Chuan resolved the threat that the one million demon monarchs posed, there were still countless demon monarchs in the Demon Realm. The Demon Realm wouldn’t waste its advantage in numbers; it would also cause internal struggle in the Demon Realm if too many demon monarchs remained there. Thus, they would definitely keep sending demon monarchs into the human world. The human world was destined to always have demon monarchs. However, the number of demon monarchs in the demon world would decrease in the future. As a Patroller Godfiend, there was no end to their mission.
It continued until the war ended, or if they died in battle.
“Chuan’er.” Meng Dajiang looked at his son and said with a smile, “Death is inevitable. That is the way of life. Some die early, while others die late. Rather than dying on the sickbed in the future, it’s better to patrol the mountains, forests, and lakes to protect all human lives. I’ll hunt the demon monarchs until they die in the wilderness! This is what makes me happy! This is what a real man is! Chuan’er, you should be happy for me.” Meng Dajiang smiled at his son.
Meng Chuan smiled and nodded.
Meng Dajiang laughed and looked at his son before looking at Liu Yebai. He said, “I’m leaving now. Go busy yourselves.”
With that said, he turned around and leaped onto the avian demon servant’s back. The bird spread its wings and disappeared into the horizon.
