Archean Eon Art - Chapter 453
Chapter 453 – Giving Up
The attack happened nearly instantly.
In fact, Holy Lady Strings had already tried her best to protect the Black River Guard. The goat demon had been wrapped with threads, and it had done its best to resist the attacks. However, the first Bloodblade pierced the Nine Lives Cocoon threads and struck the Black River Guard’s body, causing his chest to cave in. The second Bloodblade entered the Black River Guard’s body completely. The third Bloodblade shattered his body, struck the Life Casket, and destroyed the life core.
The Life Casket was extremely tough, and it served as protection for the life core.
However, when the Bloodblades struck the Life Casket’s surface, a terrifying force was transmitted, shattering everything inside it.
Just like that, the goat demon Black River Guard died!
When the first Black River Guard was killed, the originally vast 400-kilometer-long black river immediately calmed down. The black chains—which had been suppressing the True Martial domain-dissipated.
King True Martial traveled five kilometers in a second. His True Martial domain’s range expanded to five kilometers around him, instantly enveloping Monarch Peacock-who had been laying siege more than five kilometers away.
“Demon Monarch Peacock.” King True Martial smiled as he charged forward, wanting to engage in close combat. “Damn it.” Monarch Peacock’s purple eyes were filled with anger as he glanced at the distant Black River Guard. Bloodblades struck the five terrified Black River Guard members at the same time. Their bodies exploded as the vast black river began to dissipate. The Bloodblades continued to pursue the other members of the Black River Guard.
The Eighteen Black River Guard is finished. Monarch Peacock understood this point. He stared at King True Martial—who was charging towards him—and sneered coldly. He held his spear and charged towards King True Martial.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Monarch Peacock and King True Martial clashed.
On the other side, Holy Lady Strings’s expression was gloomy. Patriarch Poison Dragon shook his head slightly. “The Eighteen Black River Guard is finished.”
“It was King Eastcalm,” said Holy Lady Strings coldly. She was able to guess the murderer’s identity when the Bloodblades appeared.
Patriarch Poison Dragon frowned. “King Eastcalm, Meng Chuan? Again?”
King Eastcalm, Meng Chuan, had obstructed the demons too many times in this war.
“Holy Lady Strings, save me.”
The members of the Black River Guard were filled with despair. They were originally fifth Firmament demon monarchs that reigned supreme in a particular region. Under the Imperial Lord’s orders, they willingly transformed into the Black River Guard. They didn’t have hope of becoming demon sages. After becoming part of the Black River Guard, their strength increased greatly. In the future, their status in the Demon Realm would also increase greatly. It wasn’t a bad option.
However, although they had accomplished something in their first battle, who would have thought that they would immediately encounter a life-and-death crisis?
This terrifying Godfiend hid in the deep void, preventing the Black River Array Formation from affecting him. Eighteen Bloodblades appeared in front of them, making it impossible for them to dodge! Every Bloodblade was terrifyingly powerful. Pfft! Pfft! Pfft! Pfft! Pfft! Pfft!
Meng Chuan watched as his Bloodblades pursued the Black River Guards.
The attacks were split into two waves.
In the first wave, he killed one Black River Guard. This greatly reduced the Black River Array Formation’s strength, making it unable to pose a threat to the Godfiends any longer.
In the second wave, three Bloodblades attacked another Black River Guard and pursued them. The Bloodblades’ movements were unpredictable and terrifying. The Nine Lives Cocoon threads couldn’t intercept them even at close range.
Black River Guards exploded one after another! They were horrified and in despair. The Bloodblades were too fast; they couldn’t escape at all.
“Everyone, gather towards me,” said Holy Lady Strings via voice transmission. Numerous Nine Lives Cocoon threads gathered to protect the five Black River Guards that were closest to her.
“Alright.” The remaining Black River Guards struggled to gather. Swoosh.
Bloodblades came from the deep void and appeared inside the Nine Lives Cocoon threads’ protective range. They attacked the five Black River Guards inside the protective barrier.
Pfft! Pfft! Pfft!
This scene made Holy Lady Strings shake her head slightly.
“Cang Jue, I can only save you,” said Holy Lady Strings via voice transmission. A large number of Nine Lives Cocoon threads wrapped around Demon Monarch Cang Jue’s body, forming a robe. The robe protected his head, and Demon Monarch Cang Jue immediately flew towards Holy Lady Strings at full speed. Another boom sounded, and an ox demon Black River Guard was killed. There was only one remaining Black River Guard-Demon Monarch Cang Jue.
The Bloodblades spun as they struck him. Demon Monarch Cane Jue was sent flying from the impact, but the robe protecting him was extremely tough. The robe was the perfect manifestation of Holy Lady Strings’s technique realm.
The 18 Bloodblades struck Cang Jue one after another. Although each Bloodblade was extremely strong, the robe withstood all the attacks.
The dark-cyan-robed Meng Chuan finally appeared.
Meng Chuan looked at Demon Monarch Cang Jue—who was protected by the Nine Lives Cocoon threads. There’s still one left. He then looked at Holy Lady Strings. “Do you think you can protect it?”
“Don’t even think of injuring it!” Holy Lady Strings flew over at high speed.
An invisible Astral Wave swept over, affecting Demon Monarch Cang Jue’s Essence Soul.
“I-I…” Demon Monarch Cang Jue staggered as his consciousness began to blur.
The Eighteen Black River Guard consisted of ordinary fifth Firmament demon monarchs. Their Essence Souls were generally weak. Demon Monarch Cang Jue only had a fourth-level Essence Soul! Even with a Life Casket protecting him, his consciousness turned groggy under the Astral Wave. “It’s a pity that your Essence Soul is too weak,” said Meng Chuan coldly. A Magic Awl flew out and drilled into Demon Monarch Cang Jue’s body.
Cang Jue’s body trembled before he fell silent.
All members of the Eighteen Black River Guard died.
Holy Lady Strings stopped moving and stared at the distant Meng Chuan.
Meng Chuan glanced at her and took a step forward. He arrived beside King Molten, King Thousand Wood, and the other Godfiendswho were dozens of kilometers away. “The Eighteen Black River Guard has been wiped out. When they join forces, they become one. Due to this, their Essence Soul defenses will be greatly enhanced.” Patriarch Poison Dragon appeared by Holy Lady Strings’s side and shook his head. “If there’s only one Black River Guard left, even if it’s a special lifeform, a fourth-level Essence Soul can’t withstand King Eastcalm’s Magic Awl.”
“It’s King Eastcalm again.” Holy Lady Strings looked at the distant Godfiends. She felt very angry because she failed to protect the Eighteen Black River Guard.
King Eastcalm Meng Chuan was responsible for the kills again! Her bosom friend, Demon Monarch Quicksand, and many other demon monarchs had died at Meng Chuan’s hands.
“You stayed idle on the side and watched them die?” Holy Lady Strings looked at Patriarch Poison Dragon.Patriarch Poison Dragon chuckled. “Apart from watching, what else can I do? I can’t withstand those Bloodblades at all. I wanted to pull the Black River Guards into a small Grotto-Heaven, but the Bloodblades tore through the void. The void was so unstable that there was no way for me to pull them in. With my strength, I could only watch everything happen. As for you, Strings… didn’t you fail to save a single one after all the work you put in?”
Given his undying body, Patriarch Poison Dragon calmly taunted Holy Lady Strings. “We lost terribly this time,” said Holy Lady Strings coldly. “Although we killed two Regis Godfiends, we lost the Eighteen Black River Guard and Demon Monarch Coldmoon. Our losses are even greater in this battle.” “The three of us won’t be able to win. King True Martial’s domain is powerful. Meng Chuan can appear anywhere now. His attacks are also extremely powerful,” said Patriarch Poison Dragon. “Let’s return and report to the Imperial Lords. Let them decide what will happen next.”
Patriarch Poison Dragon looked into the distance. “That lunatic Peacock is still fighting.”
With a boom, a beam of light flew towards Patriarch Poison Dragon and Holy Lady Strings.
“Peacock,” greeted Patriarch Poison Dragon with a smile.
“I clearly suppress him, but I can’t defeat him.” Monarch Peacock was extremely furious. “Let’s go back to the Demon Realm.” With Monarch Peacock leading the way, Patriarch Poison Dragon followed. Holy Lady Strings remained silent, but she also flew away with them.
The human Godfiends watched from afar and didn’t stop them from retreating.
