Archean Eon Art - Chapter 425
Chapter 425 – After The Battle
The Magic Awl pierced through the tiny stone golems one after another, causing them to dissipate into metal and rock fragments. However, the single Magic Awl managed to pierce through over 100 tiny stone golems, causing the other stone golems to flee frantically. Many of them had already burrowed underground.
Meng Chuan’s gaze swept over, and his electromagnetic domain erupted!
Bolts of lightning appeared within the electromagnetic domain, wantonly attacking a large number of tiny stone golems. Nearly half of the tiny stone golems were struck! The stone golems’ outer layers shattered, revealing the tiny metal humanoids that were much smaller. The tiny metal humanoids were clearly much tougher; they didn’t suffer any damage from the electromagnetic domain’s bolts of lightning. They continued running away from the battlefield.
When a mountain demon is at the Great Solar realm, it can shatter its body and attack its enemies. This mountain demon-who has reached the Grotto-heaven realm-can actually flee by transforming into tens of thousands of avatars?
Mountain demons were very special among demons.
They weren’t living creatures that had gained sentience. For example, lion demons, ox demons, spider demons, flood dragons, and others could raise their cultivation realm through cultivation. However, they were originally living creatures.
A mountain demon was originally a mountain! They were dead objects.
Thanks to the good fortune of the heavens and earth, one would gain spirituality through a fortuitous encounter before embarking on the path of cultivation. They were very special. Just by relying on their special bodies, they stood at the peak amongst their peers at the same level.
How difficult was it for Meng Chuan to cultivate a Blood Droplet realm Body? Though he put in so much effort, it was only slightly stronger than a fifth Firmament demon monarch’s body. Although this mountain demon—who had reached the Grotto-Heaven realm—was still at the fifth Firmament, it had already undergone a transformation. Its life-preservation abilities had greatly strengthened.
“Why did the two of you stop?” A cold voice rang out. Standing in midair, Holy Lady Strings lowered her hands that had been clutching her head. Her robe’s collar still reached high up so that her head would be constantly protected.
She coldly glared at Meng Chuan and Wang Shan.
Meng Chuan stepped on the disc, and 12 Bloodblades surrounded his body. The six Bloodblades that had attacked Holy Lady Strings continued to fly around him.
“Where’s your Magic Awl? Why aren’t you continuing?” Holy Lady Strings looked at Dao Protector Wang Shan. “You stopped when a crack appeared?”
“Holy Lady Strings, you do have brilliant means,” said Meng Chuan with a smile. “I’m impressed!”
With that said, he flew away with Wang Shan.
As he flew away, he passed by Demon Monarch Quicksand’s corpse in a bid to store it. Chi! Chi! Chi!
However, the void spider silk had already wrapped around Demon Monarch Quicksand’s corpse and dragged it back rapidly.
The void spiderweb domain is indeed powerful. When Meng Chuan saw this, he thought to himself. After putting the Dao Protector into his Grotto-Heaven Magic Bead, he phased hundreds of kilometers away in a second and fled from the void spiderweb domain.
The void spiderweb domain barely had the might of a top Creation realm expert. What was important was its wide range. It could reach at least 150 kilometers.
If Holy Lady Strings used her real spider silk, her strength would further increase as long as it was within half a kilometer of her!
This strength was enough to defeat many ordinary demon sages. Of course, it was also because she had a breakthrough in the World Gap. Before coming to the World Gap, she was much weaker.
The spider silk cocoon wrapped around Quicksand as the void threads dissipated, revealing the black-skinned youth’s corpse.
“Quicksand.” Holy Lady Strings looked at the floating corpse with a hint of pain in her eyes. She reached out and caressed the black-skinned youth’s face as she whispered, “You have followed me for many years, but you have now died in the hands of the humans. I was too arrogant. I didn’t take human Regis Godfiends seriously after my breakthrough in the World Gap. Who would have thought that I would encounter King Eastcalm, Meng Chuan, and make you lose your life? I’ll avenge you. I’ll make sure more human Godfiends will join you in death,” said Holy Lady Strings gently.
When he was far away, Meng Chuan stopped flying. His Seamless domain naturally shielded him from detection.
I can’t fight for too long after casting Flowing Sand. Without this divine power, I probably wouldn’t have escaped the void spiderweb domain.
With this divine power, he could move hundreds of kilometers in a second. His flying speed was faster than the void spider silk. Furthermore, his thought processes were ten times faster; He was also much more agile while flying, allowing him to escape easily.
Without his divine powers, things would’ve been troublesome. Although he could rely on Heaven’s Wrath-allowing his body to transform into lightning-to escape, he couldn’t use many divine powers under those circumstances. His mind wasn’t ten times faster, but he could still travel hundreds of kilometers in a second. That reduced the variation in his flight path, so he didn’t have the confidence of dodging the void spiderweb domain’s interception in advance.
I can use Flowing Sand for a maximum of 15 seconds. In the future, I’ll try my best to maintain it for 9 seconds at maximum. I’ll leave 6 seconds for contingencies.
The earlier battle took a long time to describe; however, in reality, battles were as fast as lightning when experts fought.
Before killing Demon Monarch Mountain Splitter, Meng Chuan struck out with Heaven’s Wrath and killed Cave Lord White Azure. He then summoned Dao Protector Wang Shan to attack Holy Lady Strings. All of that took about nine seconds.
Therefore, Meng Chuan quickly fled without daring to stay any longer.
“Senior Brother Wang.” Meng Chuan summoned Wang Shan and immediately asked, “Are you alright now?”
“The Magic Awl only has cracks; it didn’t shatter. It won’t be a problem,” said Wang Shan. “If it completely shatters, I’ll lose ten percent of my Essence Soul’s Origins. My lifespan and time of lucidity will be greatly reduced.”
Meng Chuan heaved a sigh of relief.
Dao Protectors were different from ordinary Regis Godfiends. Regis Godfiends could nurture their Essence Souls with their bodies, improving their Essence Souls.
However, a Dao Protector’s body was very special. It could allow one to go past the lifespan restriction, but the pressure on one’s Essence Soul was extremely great. Senior Brother Wang Shan had a sixth-level Essence Soul, and he could only stay lucid for another 70-plus years. For over 1,000 years, he had meditated so that the pressure-exerted by the body he was currently possessing-on his Essence Soul lessened. Therefore, Dao Protector Wang Shan hadn’t formed an Essence Soul avatar over the years. He wanted to maintain his Essence Soul’s totality so that he could withstand the pressure exerted by the body.
If his Magic Awl shattered and he lost ten percent of his Essence Soul’s Origins, he would be unable to recover due to the pressure exerted by the body. It would be a permanent loss. His time of lucidity and lifespan would be greatly reduced.He had only used ten percent of his Essence Soul’s Origins to cultivate the Magic Awl. It didn’t affect his Essence Soul much, so it was fine. If he were to use 20% or 30% of his Essence Soul’s Origins to cultivate the Magic Awl, it would have a huge impact on his Essence Soul. His time of lucidity and lifespan would be greatly reduced. Once it shattered, a huge gap in Wang Shan’s Essence Soul would appear after losing 20 to 30 percent of his Essence Soul Origins. In just a few days, his Essence Soul would completely dissipate due to the pressure exerted by his body, spelling his death.
“Senior Brother Wang, how long will it take for you to heal your Magic Awl?” asked Meng Chuan.
“There are just a small number of cracks,” said Wang Shan with a smile. “I believe it will recover in half a month. I can fight during that half-month as long as I don’t attack sixth-level Essence Souls.”
Meng Chuan nodded. “Understood.”
Elsewhere in the World Gap.
With the transmission token, Holy Lady Strings and the mountain demon gathered again.
“Holy Lady,” greeted the stocky mountain demon respectfully. “In that battle, only you and I survived,” said Holy Lady Strings.
The stocky mountain demon nodded silently.
