Archean Eon Art - Chapter 436
Chapter 436 – The Truth
The blood-colored figure floated in midair, not in a hurry to escape. This was because he knew very well that it was impossible to escape the fastest person in the world—Meng Chuan.
“Meng Chuan, you need at least a few moves to capture me,” said the blood-colored figure with a strange smile. “As long as I’m willing, I can instantly kill many mortals below. Thus, you only have two choices.
“One, let me go, I will immediately flee. I won’t harm a mortal again. Two, you fight me, but I’ll have these mortals die with me.” The blood-colored figure looked at Meng Chuan. “Choose carefully. I know that the famous Meng Chuan isn’t a heartless person.”
Meng Chuan looked at the blood-colored figure smiling strangely. He was secretly puzzled. I’m 90% confident that this mysterious murderer is King Calm Sea. But since when did King Calm Sea become so garrulous? Furthermore, when was he ever so
The Astral Wave swept forward, instantly affecting the blood-colored figure. Meng Chuan knew that King Calm Sea was an extraordinary Regis Godfiend. His willpower was probably just as extraordinary as his technique realm. Even if he had a fourth-level Essence Soul, it was likely that he could barely remain lucid when affected by an Astral Wave. Oh? The blood-colored figure couldn’t help but tremble when the Astral Wave struck it. Following that, it plummeted downwards.
What? He has lost consciousness? Meng Chuan was still prepared to use his Bloodblades to defeat his opponent. Seeing his opponent fall weakly, he was somewhat puzzled. His Quintessential Essence quickly flew out and seeped into his opponent’s body. His opponent didn’t resist at all, allowing Meng Chuan to seal all his strength.
During the sealing process, Meng Chuan also discovered the Quintessential Essence in the mysterious person’s body. He also discovered the Essence Soul that had lost consciousness.
From the Quintessential Essence aura and Essence Soul aura, he was undoubtedly King Calm Sea.
Meng Chuan looked at the mysterious murderer suspended in front of him. This mysterious murderer was taller than King Calm Sea, and his face was covered with dark-red runes. He looked ugly and evil.
His appearance has completely changed, but his Quintessential Essence aura and Essence Soul aura are King Calm Sea’s. Furthermore, his willpower is rather lacking. I’ll bring him back to Archean Mountain and inform Master and the others of the situation. We’ll discuss how to deal with him.
King Calm Sea was extremely famous in the human world. He was an Archean Mountain Regis Godfiend that would very likely become a Creation Supremacy. He had presided over Calm Sea Pass for many years, killing many demons and protecting humanity.
Many Godfiends admired King Calm Sea. Many demons feared him.
If this matter was made public, the impact on morale would be terrible! More importantly, Meng Chuan had many questions on his mind. He had a nagging feeling that the blood-colored figure wasn’t actually King Calm Sea. After all, the blood-colored figure’s manner of speaking was completely different from King Calm Sea’s. King Luyue flew over from afar and sent a voice transmission. “King Eastcalm.”
“I’ve already captured this murderer alive,” said Meng Chuan. “King Luyue, please handle the aftermath. I’ll immediately send this murderer to Archean Mountain.”
“Alright, we definitely can’t spare the murderer easily,” said King Luyue immediately. His eyes were filled with anger. The mysterious murderer had killed more than a million people in Rain Peace City. How could he not be angry? “Don’t worry,” said Meng Chuan.
Meng Chuan quickly rushed to Archean Mountain with the mysterious murderer in tow.
Li Guan, Qin Wu, and Luo Tang were already waiting.
“Meng Chuan sent a signal through the token, indicating that he has successfully resolved the threat,” said Luo Tang worriedly. “I wonder if he captured the murderer alive or killed the murderer.”
“I hope he captured him alive.” Qin Wu frowned. “I really want to see who the murderer is. Is he a human or a demon?”
Li Guan looked up. “He’s here.”
Meng Chuan landed in Grotto-Heaven Pavilion with the mysterious murderer and threw the person in his grasp at the ground. The tall, ugly man-with dark-red runes on his facelooked around uneasily.
“He’s the murderer?” Qin Wu was puzzled.
“Oh?” Li Guan’s expression changed. “I checked its Quintessential Essence aura and Essence Soul aura. It’s King Calm Sea?”
Meng Chuan nodded and said, “He attacked with a sword technique just now. It was Spring Autumn Tribulation. Back when King Calm Sea and I were in the World Gap, I saw King Calm Sea use this move. This mysterious killer’s use of the move is even more perfect than what I had seen before.”
“King Calm Sea?” Luo Tang was surprised. “Xue Ting?” Qin Wu found it unbelievable. “Xue Ting is the murderer. This is impossible.” King Calm Sea was also Qin Wu’s disciple. He was also one of his most outstanding disciples.
“My Essence Soul avatar is rushing to King Calm Sea’s city. I want to see if there’s another King Calm Sea there,” said Li Guan.
“Where’s the Origins treasure, Scarlet Cloud Heaven? What about his token?” Luo Tang asked. “We can confirm their location.”
“It’s still in the city that he’s supposed to be guarding. It hasn’t moved,” said Li Guan coldly. “I’ve already summoned him to Archean Mountain. However, his identity token and Scarlet Cloud Heaven remain in place.”
Qin Wu and Luo Tang’s expressions changed slightly.
If he didn’t come under orders, then the person in front of them was probably King Calm Sea.
Everything became clearer. “This murderer’s gaze isn’t right. He doesn’t look like King Calm Sea.” Li Guan looked at the ugly man and suddenly used an Essence Soul mystic technique to target the ugly man. “Ahhh!” The ugly man clutched his head in pain as he wailed for a long time. His Essence Soul was greatly agitated, and he finally regained consciousness.
His body trembled as he slowly raised his head. Although he was still in pain, he endured it and looked around.
Meng Chuan, Li Guan, Qin Wu, and Luo Tang were alarmed.
At that moment, they found the ugly man’s eyes very familiar. This cold, proud gaze belonged to King Calm Sea.
Chi! Chi! Chi!
His bones, muscles, and facial expressions changed. Although his Quintessential Essence had been sealed, as a Regis Godfiend, he still had very refined control over his body. Soon, the blood-red figure transformed into King Calm Sea’s true appearance. “Supremacies, Master.” King Calm Sea stood up and bowed respectfully despite the pain.
Qin Wu looked at him with mixed emotions. “It’s really you.”
“That mysterious murderer?” King Calm Sea frowned slightly. “It’s me?”
Li Guan, Qin Wu, Meng Chuan, and Luo Tang looked at him.
“I guessed it too.” King Calm Sea nodded calmly. “Previously, I lost consciousness twice during my late-night cultivation. Even when I woke up later, I lacked memories of that period. As for those two times… they matched the time when the mysterious murderer attacked the cities.”
Qin Wu couldn’t help but angrily say, “Then why didn’t you report it?”
“I lost my memories twice, and two cities – which were thousands of kilometers away, were attacked. Would it definitely be me?” King Calm Sea said calmly. “If I were to report it, what should I say? That I once colluded with the demons and have connections with the demons?”
Qin Wu looked at his disciple painfully.
King Calm Sea was once the disciple he was most proud of. He had placed his hopes on King Calm Sea becoming Archean Mountain’s next Supremacy. It was unexpected that he would collude with the demons.
“Another evil consciousness hides within your Essence Soul,” said Li Guan. “It’s very rare to see such a thing happen. Typically, one’s consciousness will only split apart when one cultivates a forbidden mystic technique, causing them to turn crazy and evil. We humans have long sealed such evil, forbidden mystic techniques.”
“I’ve cultivated the demons’ formulas before,” King Calm Sea pondered and said, “Perhaps it’s related to their formulas.”
King Calm Sea waved his hand. Four manuals appeared in front of him.
“These are all the manuals the demons have given me over the years,” said King Calm Sea calmly. There was no need for him to hide it any further.
