Archean Eon Art - Chapter 469
Chapter 468 – Meng Family
Cultivation progress slowed down towards the end of each realm. Meng Tiange and Luo Tang had been stuck at the Grotto-Heaven realm’s late stage for hundreds of years. Qin Wu, Li Guan, and Bai Yaoyue had also cultivated for a long time, yet they were still stuck at the perfected Grotto-Heaven realm. It was very difficult for them to reach the Heaven Earth realm.
Although Meng Chuan had the best overall potential in the history of the human race, he encountered bottlenecks when it came to cultivating his Grotto-Heaven realm techniques. Although he went to the World Gap every year, Meng Chuan had only reached the Grotto Heaven realm’s late stage after 22 years. After breaking through, he met a conundrum.
What should be his next step? How was he to go from the Grotto-Heaven realm’s late stage to the perfected Grotto-Heaven realm?
What must I do with my Cloud Dragon Snake Movement Technique if I want to reach the perfected Grotto-Heaven realm? Meng Chuan pondered on his next steps. My Cloud Dragon Snake Movement Technique currently has the Nine Heavenly Forms of the Void’s essence as its core. It has also fused the Roving Dragon Form of Lightning, Yin-Yang Form of Lightning, and Lightning Domain Form’s essences. From the looks of it, I have placed too much importance on domains. After all, it’s a movement technique. It can also become a saber art. I should be more focused on cultivating the lethality of the technique.
The process of gradually fusing the 15 different aspects of lightning is how one cultivates the lightning lineage. I can try to fuse the Wave Splitting Forms of Lightning into the technique.
I’ve accumulated a lot of insight into the Wave Splitting Forms of Lightning’s essence. Furthermore, after I combine the Roving Dragon Form of Lightning with the Wave Splitting Forms of Lightning, my movement technique will be faster and more unpredictable. My saber technique will also be stronger. Meng Chuan began deducing the outcomes in his mind.
After attempting to combine all sorts of profundities, he felt that the Wave Splitting Forms of Lightning was very compatible with the Cloud Dragon Snake Movement Technique.
An extremely bright spiritual glow appeared. Nine Heavenly Lightning Domain, Roving Dragon Wave Splitting, Yin-Yang Transformation.
It’s feasible. This direction is very suitable for me. Meng Chuan was delighted by his new ideas. I’ll enter seclusion after I return.
Only after snapping out of his daze did Meng Chuan notice Yan Chitong sitting by the table and drinking the Fire Fruit Wine happily. At the same time, he said, “Senior Brother, you suddenly fell into a daze, so I drank alone. By the way, I’m watching that musician assassin.”
“Just drink.” Meng Chuan smiled as he turned to look at the building outside the window.
He had just been inspired a moment ago. He now had an idea of how he should improve his Cloud Dragon Snake Movement Technique.
The general direction of cultivation was to pursue the purple lightning’s essence.
However, cultivation wasn’t that simple. For Meng Chuan, every step he took was a step forward. Compared to him, most experts ended up stuck at a particular stage of cultivation, unable to improve themselves any further. Lady Blackmoon, one of the demon Imperial Lords, was one such person. She had been stuck at the Heaven Earth realm’s middle stage for millennia. Every breakthrough attempt ended up in failure.
This time, I have a feeling that this direction is correct. Meng Chuan was delighted. This young lady inspired me. I’m somewhat fated with her.
“Junior Brother Yan, I’ll go take a look,” said Meng Chuan.
“Let’s go together. But this wine is mine.” Yan Chitong put away the gourd of wine and immediately followed Meng Chuan.
Inside the luxurious room.
“I’m asking you one last time, who instigated you,” said Lord Ge ferociously with a pale face.
The delicate-looking woman snorted coldly. “Humph.”
“Very good. Very soon, I’ll let you know how it feels to not die, even when you beg for death.” Lord Ge gritted his teeth and said, “Let’s go. Bring her back.” The delicate-looking woman’s lips began to turn white as she sneered. “Of course I know what Lord Ge is capable of. Therefore, I consumed poison the moment I attacked. If I couldn’t escape, I would’ve died quickly. I estimate that the poison will take effect in another 30 seconds.” “Poison?” Lord Ge was furious. “What a suicidal woman.”
“Young lady, you want to commit suicide just because of this?” A gentle voice sounded as two figures appeared in the room. They were Meng Chuan and Yan Chitong. With a wave of his hand, the delicate-looking woman-who was being escorted-suddenly appeared beside Meng Chuan.
Meng Chuan had been inspired by the female musician’s assassination attempted. He realized that a karma bond had formed between him and her.
According to Archean Mountain’s records, karma would become more and more important to cultivators as they became stronger. This was especially true for Tribulation Eminences. They were very concerned about karma. When Meng Chuan obtained the Essence Soul Star formula, he formed a karmic connection with Tribulation Eminence Fei Yu. In the future, when he became an Eighth Tribulation Eminence, he would have to resolve the karma. Of course, the Eighth Tribulation realm was extremely distant for Meng Chuan.
According to the books left behind by Ancestral Master Archean Eon, the explanation for karma was simple: Rather help others than owe anyone anything!
The more he owed, the greater his karma.
Being kind and helping many people led to good karma-a good thing. Rather help others than owe anyone anything. Meng Chuan clearly remembered this piece of advice that Ancestral Master Archean Eon had given to his juniors. Since he had a karmic connection with the girl, he naturally helped her to resolve it.
Oh? The delicate-looking woman looked at Meng Chuan and Yan Chitong dazedly. However, she realized that the poison in her body had disappeared quickly. Her body had recovered completely.
“Greetings, Godfiends.” Lord Ge immediately bowed. The five guards also bowed.
The guests and musicians beside them immediately bowed in fear.
“Young lady, tell me, why did you try to assassinate him?” asked Meng Chuan. He could tell at a glance that the woman was only 23 years old. It wasn’t wrong to address her as a young lady. The delicate woman’s eyes lit up as she looked at the two Godfiends in front of her. She immediately knelt on the ground.
“Just stand up and say it,” said Meng Chuan.
“This Ge Congbin secretly sent many subordinates into the mountains. They looked like a merchant caravan on the surface, but in reality, they went there to abduct people wantonly. Many villages in the mountains have been destroyed by them.” The delicate-looking woman gritted her teeth.
“You are framing me.” Lord Ge was extremely furious. He immediately shouted, “Lord Godfiends, don’t listen-“.
The delicate-looking woman’s eyes turned red as she continued speaking with tears streaming down her face. “Many men and elders were sent to the mines, never to be seen again. They will die in the mines. Many women and children were sold in batches like goods. Those that were disobedient were slaughtered like livestock.” The delicate-looking woman’s body trembled.
“Earth Net investigates the entire world. What did they do to escape Earth Net’s investigations?” asked Meng Chuan.
“Earth Net?” The delicate woman sneered and pointed angrily at Lord Ge. “He, Ge Congbin, is one of Warped Cloud City’s four Patrollers – South Patroller.”
“It’s all slander. This woman has a grudge against me,” said Lord Ge angrily.
The door opened, and a figure walked into the room with an afterimage. It was a black-robed elder.
The black-robed elder looked at Lord Ge. “Brother Ge, what’s wrong?” “Brother Tian, this woman tried to assassinate me and accused me in front of those two Godfiends,” said Lord Ge immediately.
Only after Ge Congbin pointed out the two Godfiends did the black-robed elder turn his head and look at Meng Chuan and Yan Chitong. Yan Chitong had naturally changed his appearance to hide his identity, but Meng Chuan didn’t bother disguising himself. However, information regarding Regis Godfiends was secret. This black-robed elder was only an outer sect disciple of Archean Mountain, so he naturally couldn’t recognize Meng Chuan.
Although he couldn’t recognize them, he could sense how powerful these two Godfiends were. “I’m Warped Cloud City’s Earth Net Godfiend, Tian Qun.” The black-robed elder cupped his hands. “This woman tried to assassinate an Earth Net patroller. I need to bring her back to Earth Net headquarters.”
“Senior Godfiends, I have plenty of evidence,” said the slim woman. “There are at least nine deep burial pits in Fog Dragon Mountain. There are at least thousands of corpses buried there. They are the bodies of all the disobedient women and children. I can identify them! As for the people in the mines, as long as we interrogate them, we will know that they were originally commoners in the mountain villages.”
Lord Ge’s expression changed.
The black-robed elder angrily said, “How dare you slander our Earth Net’s South Patroller? Please don’t stop our Warped Cloud City’s Earth Net from handling this matter.”
“Lord Godfiends,” said Lord Ge with a fawning smile. “I’m a mortal. Although I have reached the Core Condensation realm, it’s rare for someone like me to take on the role of South Patroller. I only have this job because I have a group of good friends. They are all from Godfiend family clans. For example, the Wang family, the Lu family, and… the Meng family!”
The final words ‘Meng family’ was slowly said by Lord Ge.
The Meng family’s influence was gradually approaching that of the number one Godfiend family clan in the Great Zhou Dynasty. This was because Li Guan neared the end of his lifespan. He could only hold on for another few decades. Once he died, according to Archean Mountain’s rules, the imperial family would be replaced.
Typically, the ascension of a new imperial family was based on credits.
As an expert equivalent to a Creation Supremacy, Meng Chuan had killed one million demon monarchs. He had even brought back the Eon Sea Sect’s treasure. Due to this, Meng Chuan had gained a lot of credits. The ancient Godfiend family clans secretly guessed that the Meng family would be the Great Zhou Dynasty’s next imperial family. This family already had three Regis Godfiends. The Meng family would clearly grow stronger as time passed. Soon, they would become the strongest Godfiend family clan in the world.
When the Meng family handled matters, everyone would give them face.
“The Meng family?” said Meng Chuan softly as he frowned.“That’s right, the Meng family,” said Lord Ge with a smile. “I believe no one dares to spout nonsense about the Meng family. I received the support of many good friends. Their recommendations and belief in my abilities led to me becoming an Earth Net Patroller.”
Meng Chuan’s expression turned ugly.
Seeing this, Lord Ge felt pressured by the mysterious Godfiend.
“A bunch of bastards!” Meng Chuan’s expression turned ugly. He extended his hand and grabbed Warped Cloud City Lord, who was dozens of kilometers away. Dozens of kilometers, Warped Cloud City Lord had been eating dinner when Meng Chuan suddenly dragged him away. In the blink of an eye, Warped Cloud City Lord found himself in a house. He held his chopsticks and looked around dazedly. From the scenery outside the window, he knew one thing. This is the Rainbow Cloud Restaurant. It’s more than 25 kilometers away from my residence! He couldn’t help but tremble. He had never heard of anyone capable of pulling someone from 25 kilometers away. “Tang Fengqi!” shouted a furious voice.
Warped Cloud City Lord, Tang Fengqi, turned his head and saw two figures. Yan Chitong naturally hid his identity, but Meng Chuan didn’t hide it at all.
“King Eastcalm.” Tang Fengqi immediately bowed in fear. He was an Archean Mountain inner sect disciple. As a Great Solar Godfiend, he naturally knew Meng Chuan. “King Eastcalm?” Lord Ge and the black-robed elder were stunned.
“I want you to do the investigations.” Meng Chuan pointed at Lord Ge. “Investigate everything about Ge Congbin. Investigate everybody he knows and everything he has done. Even if it involves the Meng family, investigate it. I want a clear answer to everything!” “Yes, yes, yes.” Tang Fengqi was extremely alarmed. King Eastcalm’s status in Archean Mountain was special. He was equivalent to the Supremacies. With a single command, his legs went limp.
“No matter who it involves, don’t let them go.” Meng Chuan glared at Tang Fengqi ferociously.
