Archean Eon Art - Chapter 420
Chapter 420 – Holy Lady Strings
The three demon monarchs—who had unconsciously collapsed to the ground, rolling
– didn’t feel any pain at all. The sanguine light beams killed them. As for the other three demon monarchs, they were horrified and in despair. However, they found it difficult to control their bodies. All they could do was watch the sanguine light beams repeatedly attack them.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Explosions rang out again and again.
The bodies of these fifth Firmament demon monarchs are tenacious. Meng Chuan stood there watching the demon monarchs as ten-plus Bloodblades danced around him for 15 seconds before finally stopping.
They’re all dead. Meng Chuan scanned his surroundings. After all, they hadn’t even left a speck of dust behind after being killed. After scanning his surroundings, he was sure that they had actually died.
Meng Chuan walked over and swept up the items left behind by the demon monarchs with an invisible domain. Meng Chuan looked at the items and nodded slightly. Not bad. There’s also a transmission token? I reckon some demon monarchs sent out a cry for help before they died.
He walked around the area and stored all the items left behind by the demon monarchs into his Grotto-Heaven Magic Bead.
The small grotto-heaven was completely isolated from the outside world. There was no way for the transmission token to make any connection with anything in the outside world unless his pocket grotto-heaven was like Black Sand Grotto-Heaven. Black Sand Grotto-Heaven maintained several permanent entrances so that they could stay in contact with the outside world.
Therefore, with his small grotto-heaven storing his spoils of war, he wasn’t afraid that the enemy could track him down, even if they did have a tracking treasure.
The first group of fifth Firmament demon monarchs yielded me nine kills. Meng Chuan was rather satisfied. His victims had cultivated for many years, unlike the newly-advanced fifth Firmament demon monarchs in the human world! They were much stronger.
He had to get rid of them as soon as possible.
There were naturally few fifth Firmament demon monarchs that could be sent to the human world directly.
From the looks of their strength, it’s a relatively weak demon monarch team in the World Gap. According to the intelligence provided by King True Martial and company, the demon monarchs in the World Gap have formed teams. These teams are split into two groups.
The first type has weak overall strength. They came to the World Gap to cultivate. They don’t have the strength to snatch treasures.
The other type is extremely powerful. They normally cultivate, but they also search for treasures in the World Gap! After several clashes with human Godfiends, these demon teams that have the confidence to snatch treasures are extremely powerful.
Meng Chuan understood this.
I encountered a relatively weak team this time. However, if it weren’t for my Astral Wave, it would’ve been difficult to deal with them. If it were a powerful team… it would’ve been even more troublesome. Meng Chuan had been very careful during that fight. Suddenly, his eyes flashed. I killed nine demon monarchs. Several of them should have requested help. Could a demon monarch team be rushing over?
I’ll wait secretly. If a reinforcement team arrives, I’ll fight them if I can. If I can’t, I’ll flee. Although he and Dao Protector Wang Shan weren’t invincible, they could protect themselves.
On the other side of the World Gap, a black-and-white pool appeared amidst the ruptured boundary of sky and land.
The black-and-white pool was clearly separated into two, like Yin and Yang.
Five demon monarchs were cultivating around the pool. A devilish woman dressed in a black veil opened her eyes. Not far away, a man as tall as a mountain opened his eyes.
The two exchanged glances. “That old lion from Black Lion Mountain has requested help from me.” The muscular man’s voice was deep and powerful. “Holy Lady, has it requested help from you?”
The surrounding demon monarchs stopped cultivating the moment he said that and looked at the devilish woman.
The devilish woman nodded slightly. “Yes.”
“Holy Lady, do we help them? That old lion is still very loyal to you,” said a white-furred rat demon with a beard.
The devilish woman stood up. With a whoosh, a black-skinned youth, covered in scales, appeared beside her. She looked into the distance, and calmly said, “Save them.”
A hunchbacked demon monarch stood up with a chuckle. “Then let’s set off.”
Huh? The devilish woman and the muscular man suddenly frowned.
“Dead?” the devilish woman whispered.
“The old lion died so quickly,” said the stocky man in surprise. “With its strength, it can hold out for a long time even if it encounters a newly-advanced demon sage.”
“It should be a rather powerful human Godfiend team,” said the devilish woman calmly. “Since there was a battle, it’s very likely that a treasure has appeared.”
According to past experiences, this was indeed the case.
Very few battles occurred in the World Gap. Otherwise, nobody could focus on their cultivation if they fought each other to death every time they met an enemy.
Battles usually occurred because of treasures.
“However, we have to be careful. To be able to kill the old lion so quickly, the human Godfiend team definitely won’t be weak,” said the devilish woman.
“Human Godfiend teams aren’t worth mentioning to us,” said the hunchbacked demon monarch with an eccentric laugh. The devilish woman took a glance and said indifferently, “Blood Shura died in the hands of humans.”
“According to Patriarch Poison Dragon’s intelligence, Blood Shura was killed by King True Martial and King Calm Sea after they joined forces. King Calm Sea can affect time, allowing King True Martial to unleash several-fold his strength instantly,” said the hunchbacked demon monarch with a strange laugh. “Blood Shura relied only on the powerful body of its Shura cultivation system. In terms of cultivation realm, it’s inferior to me, much less you.”
“Back when Blood Shura first came to the World Gap, it didn’t make any breakthroughs in strength. In terms of one’s physical body, I’m not inferior to Blood Shura.” The stocky man smiled humbly.
He was a mountain demon. He cultivated in the World Gap and broke through from the peak of the Dharma Domain to the Grotto-Heaven realm in one fell swoop. A mountain demon at the Grotto-Heaven realm had a more perfect body. He was much stronger than Blood Shura in a head-on battle. This was why the devilish woman had invited him to the team.
“Amongst all fifth Firmament demon monarchs, Holy Lady is the best in terms of technique realm,” praised the white-furred rat demon. “Patriarch Poison Dragon only relies on a treasure to transform into a poisonous black liquid, giving him an undying body. Its combat strength is inferior to that of Holy Lady. Even that peacock transformed after consuming a mutated beast’s corpse, making its body become stronger than many demon sages. In terms of technique realm, moves, and divine powers, they are inferior to you, Holy Lady. As long as you advance one step further, you can reverse your old age and become a demon sage. Peacock and Patriarch Poison Dragon have no hope of becoming demon sages. How can they compare to you?”
“Peacock is very strong.” The devilish woman calmly said, “Back when I dominated the Demon Realm, only it defeated me. Even though I’ve gained insights from watching the birthing world’s phenomena and my strength has increased, I still don’t have the confidence to deal with it. If I were to attain a seventh-level Essence Soul and combine it with my Essence Soul mystic technique, I might be able to defeat it.” She had sparred with Monarch Peacock many times, so she knew how powerful Monarch Peacock was.
Monarch Peacock and Patriarch Poison Dragon’s strength were a result of special opportunities.
As for this woman, she relied solely on her technique realm to possess such strength. Back then, she was inferior to only Monarch Peacock. As her technique and cultivation realm increased, she gained insights into her divine powers and created a demon sage-level ultimate technique.
This woman was the demons’ Holy Lady Strings.
The World Gap was a dream come true for her, considering her extremely high perception.
The five of them rushed over.Ripples appeared in the void, affecting Holy Lady String and the others in a 50-kilometer radius.
After a short while, they traveled over 1,500 kilometers.
“In front of us is the area where the old lion died. No matter what opponent we face, we have to be careful,” said the devilish woman indifferently.
“Yes.” Her four companions were extremely obedient. With their pride, the only fifth Firmament demon monarchs that could make them humble were Monarch Peacock and Holy Lady Strings.
Huh? Ripples appeared in the void as they swept across a corner, colliding with Meng Chuan’s electromagnetic domain.
Meng Chuan had waited in hiding. He wanted to see how strong the reinforcement demon monarchs were. If he couldn’t afford to offend them, he would flee. If he could attack, he would try.
Lightning? The devilish woman turned her head. The void ripples immediately spread out in Meng Chuan’s direction, revealing the hidden Meng Chuan.
Holy Lady Strings? Meng Chuan’s pupils constricted when he saw the devilish woman. According to the intelligence, the fifth Firmament demon monarchs ranked in terms of threat were 1st: Monarch Peacock, 2nd: Holy Lady Strings.
