Archean Eon Art - Chapter 465
The demon team protected the fake Demon Sage Deep Profundity as they continued heading to various places in the World Gap, pretending to draw a map of the connection points.
“Not good.” In the middle of the demon team, Patriarch Poison Dragon’s expression suddenly changed drastically. His consciousness seeped into the small grotto-heaven. He discovered that although the only living being in the small Grotto-Heaven remained seated, it was no longer breathing. His face drained of color immediately.
“What’s wrong?” asked Holy Lady Strings and Monarch Peacock.
“The talisman-which I used to help us rendezvous with Demon Sage Deep Profundity —suddenly couldn’t sense its life,” said Patriarch Poison Dragon hoarsely. “I immediately checked the small grotto-heaven afterward. Demon Sage Deep Profundity is already dead.”
“How is that possible?” Holy Lady Strings and Monarch Peacock’s expressions changed drastically.
“It’s already dead.” Patriarch Poison Dragon waved his hand, and Demon Sage Deep Profundity’s corpse appeared beside him. A domain prevented spying means, isolating the three demon monarchs from the outside world.
“How did it die when it was in your small grotto-heaven?” Monarch Peacock was somewhat angry. They had sacrificed so much, hoping to obtain the Imperial Lords’ rewards. Now, it was all for naught. “It isn’t Poison Dragon’s fault.” Holy Lady Strings looked at the corpse in front of her. “Demon Sage Deep Profundity’s body isn’t damaged at all. Only its Essence Soul has been completely destroyed. Its Essence Soul likely suffered a direct attack. Ordinary Essence Soul mystic techniques can’t penetrate a grotto-heaven. Only legendary karmic mystic techniques are capable of doing so. What could we do in such a situation? The Imperial Lords can’t blame us.”
“Let’s go back.” Monarch Peacock shook his head. “All our years of hard work has been for nothing.” “The human team is leaving swiftly,” said Holy Lady Strings. “My domain can sense that they are leaving extremely quickly. It’s impossible for us to chase after them. Oh… I can’t sense them anymore. They are too far away.”
Monarch Peacock shook his head. “How are we to chase after King Eastcalm? He’s too fast. Let’s go back.”
The human world, Archean Mountain.
The nameless mountain’s peak.
Li Guan, and the illusory figures of Qin Wu, Luo Tang, Bai Yaoyue, Meng Tiange, Mi Yu, Xu Yingwu, Zhang Chun, and Jing Fei— leader of the Demon Annilation Guild-were gathered here.
Ever since the two demon sage possessors attempted to tear through the world membranes and enter the World Gap three days ago, the Creation Supremacies in the world had been extremely nervous.
Although Demon Sage Fire Dragon had been killed, Demon Sage Deep Profundity had successfully fled into the World Gap and rendezvoused with the demon team. This caused everyone to wait for the battle’s outcome nervously.
“It’s been more than 800 years,” said Jing Fei
– leader of the Demon Annihilation Guild. “We have been fighting the demons for more than 800 years. If we fail to stop the demons this time, humanity’s darkest times will arrive.”
“We have to stop them,” said Bai Yaoyue.
“However, there’s nothing we can do now,” said Xu Yingwu. “We can only hope for the Regis Godfiends to stop the demons.”
They fell silent again.
Only the wind howled. The nine Creation Supremacies were anxious. After all, humanity’s fate would be decided by this battle.
Li Guan, Qin Wu, and Luo Tang’s expressions changed suddenly. “Not good.”
“What’s wrong?” The other six Creation Supremacies could not help but panic. “What happened? Whether it’s good news or bad news, speak quickly,” Bai Yaoyue urged anxiously.
Li Guan’s eyes turned slightly red as he said in a deep voice, “King True Martial just died.”
“King True Martial is dead?” Bai Yaoyue, Xu Yingwu, Jing Fei, and the other Creation Supremacies were even more flustered than before.
“His technique is so strong that he’s comparable to a perfected Grotto-Heaven realm expert. Doesn’t the True Martial Seven Absolutes make him extremely well-rounded? His defensive means should be even more impressive,” said Jing Fei, the Demon Annihilation Guild Master, anxiously, “He even has a Tribulation treasure. How can he die?”
“King True Martial is the strongest member of the Regis Godfiend team. He’s also the most important. Now he’s dead? That means the situation has turned for the worse.” Xu Yingwu was extremely worried.
“Let’s wait for the results,” said Li Guan.
The Creation Supremacies fell silent.
They had no choice but to wait!
In just 30 seconds
The world membrane distorted.
Li Guan, Qin Wu, and the other Creation Supremacies looked up. They saw the distorted world membrane being penetrated by a Bloodblade repeatedly. A hole-dozens of feet wide—was torn open.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Meng Chuan, Peng Mu, Dao Protector Wang Shan, King Molten, King Transcendence, King Northcleanse, and King Thousand Wood flew out of the hole and landed on the nameless mountain.
Xu Yingwu couldn’t help but ask, “How did it go?”
The other Creation Supremacies also looked at them nervously.
Meng Chuan and company exchanged looks. Although killing Demon Sage Deep Profundity was a joyous occasion, the death of King True Martial weighed on the hearts of Meng Chuan and company.
“We succeeded,” said Meng Chuan. “Succeeded?” The Creation Supremacies revealed looks of excitement.
“Good, good, good.” Meng Tiange was so excited that his eyes were filled with tears. Extremely excited, he said, “You did well. You did well.”
“We succeeded.” Jing Fei was extremely excited. “We finally stopped the demons.”
“Well done.” Li Guan looked at the seven Godfiends in front of him and nodded. “You’ve done well. All we need to do now is guard the city passes and enjoy a long period of peace.”
“Peaceful days are here, hahaha.” Jing Fei laughed. Meng Chuan and the other Regis Godfiends didn’t smile.
King Molten said, “King True Martial ended the battle. He sacrificed his life and used a mystic technique to kill Demon Sage Deep Profundity.”
“We didn’t do anything. King True Martial did it all by himself,” said King Thousand Wood.
Meng Chuan added, “Senior Brother originally had over 100 years to live. With his attainments in the Yin-Yang lineage, it would be possible for him to become a Creation Supremacy by reversing his age. However, to ensure that Demon Sage Deep Profundity would die, he completely expended his remaining lifespan and burned his Essence Soul.”
“He’s a hero,” said Jing Fei. “He’s a hero of the entire human race.”
Li Guan, Qin Wu, and Luo Tang had mixed emotions.
They had watched King True Martial enter Archean Mountain as a youth. They had watched him grow step by step to this day. Although he had once despaired and fallen to a low point in his life, King True Martial’s technique realm was comparable to Qin Wu and Li Guan’s.
Now, he was dead.
On Archean Mountain, King True Martial’s cave abode.
King True Martial’s corpse laid on the bed as wisps of flames burned it, gradually turning the body to ashes.
Li Guan, an illusory Qin Wu, an illusory Luo Tang, and Meng Chuan watched from the side.
The strongest Regis Godfiend of the present era-also the strongest Regis Godfiend in the past millennium-had been turned to ashes. “I will bury his ashes on this cave abode’s back mountain,” said Li Guan.
“Senior Brother doesn’t have any family?” asked Meng Chuan.
“In his entire life, he never married. He didn’t have children and has always been alone,” said Li Guan. “He once had a mortal sister. He had a deep relationship with her. After her death, he no longer remained in contact with her descendants.”
Meng Chuan nodded slightly.
“This was left behind by Senior Brother.” Meng Chuan pointed at the void bracelet beside him. “The Tribulation treasure is also inside.”
Li Guan nodded. He put away the void bracelet and went forward to place the ashes into an urn.
Meng Chuan, Qin Wu, and Luo Tang watched silently.
“Although King True Martial sacrificed himself, a new era has begun,” said Qin Wu. “Humans will have much better days.”
Meng Chuan nodded. “Yea.”
Yes, a new era had begun.
The Demon Realm.
“Demon Sage Deep Profundity is dead. Our plan failed.” Imperial Lord Starquix shook his head gently. “The human’s heritage is deeper than we expected. A karma technique killed Demon Sage Deep Profundity while it hid in a small grotto-heaven.”
“What do we do next?” asked Lady Blackmoon. “Should we think of a way to send demon sage possessors into the human world?”
Imperial Lord Starquix shook his head. “It’s difficult. The demon sages aren’t our puppets. We can occasionally force one or two demon sages, but we can’t force all of them. If we force them into a corner… the demon sages will leave the Demon Realm and roam the outer realm.
“Back then,when the World Gap formed and a million demon monarchs infiltrated the human world-only Deep Profundity, Yellow Oscillate, Fire Dragon took the initiative to head to the human world. They all felt that there was a chance of victory,” continued Imperial Lord Starquix. “The situation has completely reversed now. The demon sages that entered the human world—Yellow Oscillate, Deep Profundity, and Fire Dragonhave died. Even Demon Sage Nine Abyss was forced to flee to the outer realm to survive.
“In such a situation, it will be very difficult to make the demon sages enter the human world willingly via possession,” said Imperial Lord Starquix.
The greater their chances of victory, the more willing the demon sages were to participate in the three demon Imperial Lords’ plans. However, the higher the death rate in the human world, the more reluctant the demon sages were.
“Besides, we don’t need ordinary demon sages. We need demon sages that can break through the two world membranes quickly,” said Imperial Lord Starquix. “The only demon sages left in the human world-Demon Sage North Sense and Demon Sage Thousand Cricketdon’t have good offensive strength.”
“It’ll be very difficult to find a suitable demon sage that’s willing,” said Emperor Roc. “Even if we find one, it will take it about 30 years to cultivate to the peak of the fifth Firmament after possession. Thirty years… If we do attack then, we might still fail.” Emperor Roc shook his head. “The humans have produced a monstrous genius, King Eastcalm, Meng Chuan. In 30 years, he will be even more terrifying than he is now.”
“Although the situation is dire, we still have to try,” said Imperial Lord Starquix.
The three Imperial Lords knew the war had become extremely difficult for them.
The World Gap.
King Calm Sea, formed from dark-blue ice, stood guard alone.
Senior Brother. King Calm Sea looked at the world that was slowly forming. He thought to himself, I’m actually very envious of you! Destroying the demons’ plans is a huge meritorious deed! You’ve helped the entire human world! Your name will be recorded in humanity’s history.
As for me, I’m just a joke. I was teased and used by demons. I could only recover completely because Master helped me become an ice lifeform. Otherwise, I would’ve become a lunatic that harmed humanity.
King Calm Sea continued advancing alone. He needed-wanted to redeem himself.
Due to Archean Mountain’s punishment, he had to patrol the World Gap for 300 years.
