Archean Eon Art - Chapter 466
Chapter 466 – Twenty-Two Years Later
In the blink of an eye, 22 years had passed since the battle in the World Gap.
The Great Zhou Dynasty’s Jiang State.
A merchant caravan with hundreds of people was advancing on a main road. A group of children sat on the two mule carts in the caravan. There were over ten children in total.
“It wasn’t easy for us to join the caravan as they made their way to Jiang State. Kids like you shouldn’t cause any trouble. If you anger the caravan owners, they will chase us away,” said a linen-clothed man who was driving the mule cart. “When the time comes, we won’t be able to bring you to Jiang State Capital that’s hundreds of kilometers away.”
“We will be very obedient.”
The children nodded immediately. “Uncle Liu, Uncle Zhang, we’re going to Jiang State Capital’s Green Elm Dao Academy. It’s said that King Feather Dragon, a Godfiend, cultivated in Green Elm Dao Academy when he was young. Is that true?” asked a boy. Immediately, the children on the two mule carts pricked up their ears and looked at the adults in anticipation.
“Haha.” A youth with a saber walked beside the mule cart. He laughed and said, “It’s true. King Feather Dragon attended Green Elm Dao Academy when he was young. He is the son of King Eastcalm and Queen Calmmoon. He cultivated at Green Elm Dao Academy. This Green Elm Dao Academy is definitely one of the best Dao Academies in the world. It’s most suitable for children like you to study there. The entire fort selected the 16 of you to go there. You have to cultivate well when you are at Green Elm Dao Academy.”
“I know, I know.”
“King Eastcalm’s family is truly impressive. They have three Regis Godfiends.”
“King Eastcalm is the most powerful Godfiend in the world. He alone wiped out a million demon monarchs in the world.” The group of children discussed. Nearly 40 years had passed since Meng Chuan resolved the threat of the million demon monarchs. King Eastcalm’s reputation had risen as time passed. He was extremely famous now.f𝐫ℯe𝘸𝙚𝑏n𝑜ѵ𝒆l. 𝐜𝚘𝓶
“Uncle, I heard that Jiang State Capital is 100 kilometers wide, right?” “Yes. From the eastern city gates to the western city gates, you won’t be able to cover it even if you walk from morning until night,” said the saber-wielding youth with a smile. “Furthermore, I heard that a powerful Godfiend built Jiang State Capital’s city walls in half a month.”
“Half a month?” The children were dumbfounded.
As the elders chatted with the children, suddenly
From afar, a figure ran over and shouted, “Demons! Run ahead! Run ahead!”
The figure that flew over was also a Mortal Shedding realm expert. His shouts were loud, and almost the entire caravan heard it.
At first, the merchants were taken aback. They turned their heads and saw a black ‘line’ rapidly coming towards them.
“It’s the demons. Hurry up and leave.” The two Impervious realm experts in the caravan had excellent eyesight. Their expressions changed drastically once they saw this. They immediately shouted at the top of their voices.
The entire caravan went crazy. Many goods were abandoned as people fled in panic.
The black line in the distance quickly spread out. It was a dense horde of demons. The ones running in front were mainly greater demons and demon lieutenant commanders. Their speed was in no way inferior to those at the Impervious realm. They moved much faster than the entire caravan. The merchants were fleeing with all their might, but the demons behind them still closed in on them.
The demons were extremely ferocious as they ran with dismembered human corpses in hand.
“We’re too slow. We can’t escape.” The caravan was in a state of panic. Four of the adults on the two mule carts carried the children.
“Brother Liu, what should we do?”
“The Godfiends will quickly arrive once they are notified. Hold on, hold on,” shouted Uncle Liu anxiously. It was already difficult for them to escape themselves. The 16 children from the fort only slowed them down even more.
The mule ran desperately as it pulled the cart, but it was much slower than the demons.
“We won’t be able to protect them. Every man for himself!” A skinny, hunchbacked man suddenly jumped out of the mule cart and fled into the distance.
“Liu Laoqi.” The other three adults were extremely furious. Immediately, one of their companions took over the reins of the mule and continued driving it forward.
“When will the Godfiends come?”
“If the Godfiends come in time, we’ll live. If not, we’ll die,” said Uncle Liu through gritted teeth. Everyone looked at the dense horde of demons behind them. Some of the bear demons and ox demons were as large as a hill. The humans didn’t have any extravagant thoughts of resisting.
The children on the two mule carts were even more horrified. They had no idea how to deal with the situation. The children had never encountered such danger before.
Just as the obstreperous demons were about 100 feet away from the caravan, all the demons suddenly froze.
The dense horde of demons—which was spread out over a kilometer-froze. They were completely motionless.
Following that, the wind reduced the demons to dust with a whoosh. Tens of thousands of demons were annihilated instantly.
Meng Chuan stood high in the sky and looked down at the scene.
An invisible void fluctuation spread out a hundred kilometers. No demon within 100 kilometers could escape his detection.
Oh? Meng Chuan turned his head to look into the distance. An avian demon monarch was traveling at full speed.
Meng Chuan’s figure blurred before arriving in front of the avian demon monarch.
The avian demon monarch was taken aback. When he saw Meng Chuan in front of him, he bowed his head respectfully. “Greetings, King Eastcalm. I received Earth Net’s help request. I came here to provide reinforcements.”
“I’ve killed all the demons. There are five second Firmament demon monarchs’ corpses 6.5 kilometers to the northeast. You are in charge of handling them,” said Meng Chuan. “Also, the unstable World Entrance is about 9 kilometers to the northeast. Keep an eye on it.”
“Yes,” said the avian demon monarch respectfully. Meng Chuan nodded and looked at the distant caravan. He sighed inwardly before disappearing
As he flew, Meng Chuan wasn’t in a good mood.
Over the past few years, the number of unstable World Entrances has been increasing as the human world and the Demon Realm gradually grow closer to each other. Several of them appear in the Great Zhou Dynasty every day. Occasionally, more than ten unstable World Entrances appear a day. Ever since their plans for the World Gap failed, the demons have become even crazier. Every time an unstable World Entrance appears, they will send demons into the human world to engage in slaughter.
There are many Earth Net personnel now. A large number of Godfiends and demon servants are stationed everywhere. However, unstable World Entrances appear without any warning. There are often casualties. Meng Chuan shook his head slightly. Even he couldn’t do anything about it.
It had been nearly 40 years since he resolved the threat of a million demon monarchs. For mortals, 40 years was a very long time. Many youths had never experienced what life had been like when one million demon monarchs roamed the world, wreaking havoc. They had never experienced the days of hiding underground, in lakes, and deep in the mountains.
After 40 years, the human population had also multiplied to a large extent.
For every ten unstable World Entrances, there’s almost always one tragic outcome. All these years, the world has been peaceful. The large city passes are guarded quite well. Demon servants secretly watch the small and medium-sized World Entrances. The only time when a large number of casualties occur is when unstable World Entrances appear randomly. Meng Chuan had no solution to this problem.
A large city is guarded by Godfiends. As for the fort villages, it’s very easy for them to encounter disasters. Fortunately, Earth Net is everywhere. Godfiends and demon servants patrol the world all the time. The demons only dare to attack fort villages at most. Last year, 175 forts in the Great Zhou Dynasty were attacked. Over a million people died.
More than a million people died, and over 100 village forts were attacked. Placed against the backdrop of the entire Great Zhou Dynasty, it was a mere statistic. After all, this amount of casualties… was much less than before.
Meng Chuan flew towards the south.
I’m here. A towering city appeared in his vision.
Dragoncloud State, Warped Cloud City. This was a bustling city with over ten million people.
Upon seeing the large city, Meng Chuan smiled. He had come to congratulate his good friend. His good friend, Yan Chitong, had just become a Regis Godfiend!
