Archean Eon Art - Chapter 402
Chapter 402 – Prison Shrinking
Demon Sage Nine Abyss felt the World Power of the entire Dark-Red Prison gather upon his body. The unprecedented strength intoxicated him.
Kill Meng Chuan?He had full confidence in doing that.
“Die.” Nine Abyss transformed into a dark-red blur as he charged over. As for the stone ox beast, 12 Bloodblades, and Liu Qiyue’s arrows, he completely ignored them. Huh? Nine Abyss’s expression changed.
An invisible Essence Soul weapon instantly attacked him. His Essence Soul domain saw it
—a strange, pitch-black awl. Nine Abyss could not help but panic when he saw it. It was too fast. Before Nine Abyss could react, the magic awl entered his body and arrived at his sea of consciousness.
In his sea of consciousness, a powerful Essence Soul-which had been cultivating for many years—was surrounded by a dark-red shadow. He was also alarmed when facing the Magic Awl.
As a world-type Tribulation treasure, the Dark-Red Prison was beneficial to one’s Essence Soul. Of course, the benefits were limited. It couldn’t be compared to a protective treasure like the Bloodblade Disc. The Bloodblade Disc was specially refined by an Essence Soul Tribulation Eminence for his disciple. Its defense was ranked first. As for the Dark-Red Prison, it was ultimately meant to set up a world. Pfft. The black Magic Awl instantly pierced through the dark-red shadow and Nine Abyss’s Essence Soul. Although his Essence Soul was tough and solid, it was still forcefully penetrated!
A huge hole appeared.
At the same time, the sharp grooves at the edge of the Magic Awl—which was known for its offensive power-damaged his Essence Soul to the greatest extent.
“Roar!” Demon Sage Nine Abyss—who was originally confident-suddenly let out an extremely painful howl. The dark-red robe on his body began to collapse uncontrollably.
Painful, it hurts! The intense pain made Nine Abyss hold his head and wail.
Pfft! Pfft! Pfft…
With the dark-red robe crumbling and Nine Abyss leaving himself nearly defenseless, Nine Abyss’s Blood Fiend Armor was the only thing protecting him. However, the Bloodblades avoided the armor and pierced through Nine Abyss’s head, abdomen, throat, and other exposed spots.
The stone ox beast ruthlessly slammed into Demon Sage Nine Abyss’s body. Although its moves were crude, its strength alone was comparable to a peak Creation realm expert. This collision caused Nine Abyss’s tough body to split into two, snapping at the waist. As for Nine Abyss’ upper body, he still clutched his head in pain. He couldn’t care less about the attacks.
Pfft! Pfft! Pfft!
Three arrows landed on Nine Abyss’s body one after another, devastating his body even more. “It really hurts,” Nine Abyss growled. His damaged, split body instantly merged and became flawlessly whole. Once that was done, Nine Abyss’s eyes flew open and stared coldly at the distant Meng Chuan. However, his Essence Soul’s pain made his face twitch.
What a powerful body. Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue were alarmed.
“Demons have powerful bodies.” Meng Chuan sent a voice transmission to his wife. “My body can only be considered superior to fifth Firmament demon monarchs. Compared to demon sages, at the very least, Demon Sage Nine Abyss’s body is stronger than mine. Its vitality and recovery speed are probably close to mine. I believe it can be reborn from a single drop of blood as well.” It was very difficult to kill fifth Firmament demon monarchs even if one diced them up.
Killing a demon sage? A demon sage’s vitality was even more abnormal. Nine Abyss was a demon sage that had cultivated for many years. He was nothing like a newly-advanced demon sage.
“What a powerful Essence Soul attack.” Nine Abyss roared softly as he charged towards Meng Chuan. Magic Awl. Meng Chuan directed the Magic Awl with a thought.
The Magic Awl entered Nine Abyss’s sea of consciousness once and forcefully penetrated his Essence Soul again. At the same time, the sharp grooves on the Magic Awl naturally shattered the Essence Soul. Nine Abyss’s Essence Soul resiliently resisted the attack. After the Magic Awl pierced through the Essence Soul, cracks appeared in the Essence Soul weapon.
The Magic Awl is damaged? Meng Chuan was secretly alarmed. Although it’s very powerful, it’s too easily damaged.
The forbidden spell, Magic Awl, pursued extreme might, but there were many flaws. Firstly, one had to direct lots of their Essence Soul Origins to maintain the Essence Soul weapon. Secondly, it was too brittle due to its extreme sharpness. If the enemy’s Essence Soul blocked it with all its might, the Magic Awl would be damaged. If it couldn’t penetrate through, it would shatter directly.
Even if the Magic Awl successfully penetrated the Essence Soul after a few attempts, it would still shatter.
However, the Magic Awl had excellent effects after penetrating an enemy’s Essence Soul once. The enemy’s Essence Soul would be unable to fight back due to the pain.
“Roar!” Nine Abyss clutched his head in pain and stopped once more. Even with the aid of the Dark-Red Prison, he could barely maintain his external senses.
I nearly lost control of the outside world after suffering the Essence Soul attack. I can only barely maintain my lucidity. My Essence Soul doesn’t follow any patterns when it comes to convergence and divergence. It can split into billions of thoughts. However, this strange Essence Soul attack only took two strikes to make me lose ten percent of my Essence Soul’s Origins. I’ll lose a portion of my memories if I suffer another two or three strikes.
I’ve damaged my Origins, and my Essence Soul is in extreme pain. Nine Abyss sensed the intense pain coming from his Essence Soul. I can’t use any intricate moves now. I can only use brute force.I must use a forbidden spell and kill the enemy with one strike! I can’t afford to delay any further!
The dark-red robe condensed on his body once again. Nine Abyss looked at Meng Chuan from afar. The Dark-Red Prison began to shrink; its five-kilometer diameter rapidly shrunk.
Oh? The couple and the stone ox beast realized that the Dark-Red Prison was shrinking.
“Ah Chuan, why aren’t you using your Essence Soul mystic technique?” Liu Qiyue sent a voice transmission.
“If I use it again, my Essence Soul weapon will shatter,” said Meng Chuan via voice transmission. “That’s why I can’t use it easily.”
He felt a little regretful. If he had used 20% of his Essence Soul’s Origins to form the Magic Awl, its might would definitely be much greater. He could probably kill Demon Sage Nine Abyss with just the Essence Soul mystic technique alone. However, there was no room for regret! Meng Chuan had chosen to use only 10% of his Essence Soul’s Origins because it would influence him significantly if he used any more.
It was clearly stated that one would only lose memories and suffer a drop in perceptivity when one used more than 30% of the Essence Soul’s Origins. However, Meng Chuan could sense that the side effects of using just 10% of his Essence Soul’s Origins already had insignificant impacts on him.
For example, his Essence Soul’s thought process had slowed down by one percent, and its stability had decreased by one to two percent. Clearly, the more Essence Soul Origins he used, the greater the impact it had on him. In fact, it might even affect his spirituality and perceptivity. It was just that the initial impact was tiny.
This mystic technique was ultimately a forbidden technique.
Meng Chuan wanted to reach the Creation realm as soon as possible. He wanted to become an invincible Creation expert or even an Imperial Lord. He wanted to end this war completely.
There’s no need to regret my choice, thought Meng Chuan. If I used 20 to 30 percent of my Essence Soul Origins, it might take me an extra decade or two to reach the Creation realm. It might have an impact on my chances of becoming an Imperial Lord.
Nine Abyss constantly shrank the Dark-Red Prison until it was just 1.5 kilometers wide. The Dark-Red Prison could expand and shrink. It could shrink until it was 1.5 kilometers wide.It’s too close. Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue were somewhat uneasy.
The Dark-Red Prison’s shrinking made them even closer to Nine Abyss. To engage in close combat with a demon sage that had a powerful body? It was suicidal.
Nine Abyss punched out without any warning.
His punch instantly reached Meng Chuan and his wife. They were just too close to one another! Thankfully, the Origins treasure, Clear Sky, formed three lightning barrier layers. Boom!
The punch-fueled by World Power-shattered the three lightning barrier layers.
This punch wasn’t aimed at Meng Chuan, but Liu Qiyue!
This was because Meng Chuan was too slippery with his movement technique! This information was what they had obtained after Patriarch Yellow Oscillate and company ambushed Meng Chuan last time.
