Archean Eon Art - Chapter 47
Chapter 47: Murong You’S Outcome
Whether I survive depends on this very moment. Although Murong You was disheartened, his desire to live strengthened.
He used a forbidden spell and sped towards the raging river. Although losing an arm caused the situation to become dire, the forbidden spell made him much faster than normal.
Faster! Faster! Faster! Murong You frantically ran for his life while watching his back.
Meng Chuan continued to follow him.
He didn’t try to kill me? It seems that unleashing such incredible power is also a type of forbidden technique. He is talented and promising, so he doesn’t dare to use a forbidden technique too frequently. Murong You couldn’t help but feel lucky. For the sake of his life, he used a forbidden spell without hesitating. For peerless geniuses like Meng Chuan, they cherished their bodies and carefully rationed the usage of forbidden techniques—since they were afraid their foundations would be damaged.
Caoyun River. Murong You looked at the raging river in front of him, and couldn’t help but feel delighted. He immediately dived, transforming into a blur as he entered the river.
This pursuit had lasted roughly half a minute.
They had gone past a few streams. For instance, the street where Vice Branch Masters Tu and Gao had died was just beside a 20-foot wide stream.
However, that stream was too narrow. Even if he entered the stream, enemies on the bank could sense the fluctuations in the water. If the tracking continued, he would be doomed once Fairy Meng arrived.
Only a wide and deep river allowed him to escape pursuit.
This is Caoyun River. It’s 800 feet wide. He can’t track me. Murong You dove deeper into the river. The deeper he went, the harder it would be for someone on the bank to find him.
After diving, he quickly swam towards the middle of Caoyun River—which was also the deepest spot.
Standing by the riverbank, Meng Chuan could sense Murong You. At first, he could sense Murong You clearly, but as Murong You dove six feet deep, he was unable to “see” clearly. He could only sense the aura heading for deeper depth. Even his aura was rapidly weakening.
Murong You dived deeper and swam further away.
Meng Chuan didn’t dare stand near the water surface. With his current strength, he was able to walk on water. However, if Murong You attacked him, he would be in a dire situation. If he was dragged into the river, he would lose his life.
Soil and rocks are the greatest obstacles to my sensory domain. River water comes second. I can’t sense him once he’s ten feet deep. Meng Chuan frowned.
Murong You had already disappeared from his senses.
At Caoyun River’s middle, the water depth was nearly 60 feet. The depth of the river was 20 feet, even when one was close to the banks. After all, huge ships passed through the river.
He escaped from my senses. In the darkness, Meng Chuan stood by the shore and looked at the sparkling Caoyun River. Many thoughts flashed through his mind.
Meng Dajiang and Liu Yebai had left Eastcalm Prefecture again. They headed out of town for quite some time every year.
However, because of the new year, Fairy Meng had been in the ancestral mansion for the past few days. When Meng Chuan released the distress flare—one that Fairy Meng had personally given him—the Quintessential Energy mark in it allowed her to sense it immediately.
Oh? Fairy Meng held her walking stick and came out of the house. When she looked up, she saw the rising flare.
Meng Chuan is requesting help?
Fairy Meng felt her heart tighten. She gently slammed her walking stick on the ground, and an invisible wave immediately spread out. The wave fluctuations were extremely fast. In the blink of an eye, the wave had spread five kilometers in every direction—including the area where the flare had been lit.
She sensed Meng Chuan fleeing in panic as the white-browed Murong You, the bear-like Vice Branch master Tu, and the smug and confident Vice Branch Gao cornered him.
Murong You? The Skydemon Sect’s Eastcalm branch master and vice branch masters have all appeared. Even the weakest of the trio has comprehended Force and can release demonic aura. That Murong You is nearly invincible underneath the Godfiend Realm. Fairy Meng’s expression changed. Meng Chuan is in danger!
Her figure immediately vanished as she rushed over as fast as she could. She desperately rushed towards him.
She didn’t have time to probe any further. Probing would only waste time. She needed to arrive as soon as possible! In the past, she could join forces with other Godfiends at Calm Sea Pass. All she needed to do was carry out reconnaissance on their surroundings, control a domain, and leave the head-on fighting to her companions.
About a minute later, Fairy Meng arrived at the area she had seen Meng Chuan fleeing in.
With a single glance, she saw Vice Branch Master Gao’s body split in two. Clearly, a sharp saber had halved his body.
Could it be that an expert saved Meng Chuan? Fairy Meng was taken aback as she slammed her walking stick lightly on the ground, producing invisible ripples.
She immediately discovered a huge bear-like corpse lying in a damaged residence not far away. It was Vice Branch Master Tu’s corpse. The fatal injury he suffered was a strike to the neck.
Invisible waves spread out for five kilometers.
She immediately discovered Murong You being pursued by Meng Chuan. Clearly, the former was fleeing in a panic while Meng Chuan was in hot pursuit.
Meng Chuan is chasing after Murong You? Fairy Meng was somewhat dazed.
When she saw the two vice branch masters’ corpses, she thought an expert had saved Meng Chuan. From the looks of it now, it was very likely that Meng Chuan had killed them. Furthermore, he was pursuing Murong You—who was invincible underneath the Godfiend realm.
Although she was shocked, Fairy Meng still rushed over.
Every step she took covered hundreds of feet. Every step she took, her walking stick would hit the ground, and invisible waves emanated out.
With every step she took, she probed the situation, and it affected her speed. However, Fairy Meng was no longer anxious. As she was very close, she was confident that Murong You would be incapable of escaping.
Meng Chuan has taken action? Fairy Meng could clearly sense that when they approached the Caoyun River, Meng Chuan’s speed suddenly increased dramatically as he slashed at Murong You. The speed of that strike shocked her. The saber art was as fast as lightning and was oppressive and tyrannical. Murong You attempted to block it with a forbidden spell. Three strikes were delivered—with the third strike being soft and bizarre—and Murong You was heavily injured. He even lost an arm.
When did Meng Chuan become this strong? Fairy Meng found it unbelievable.
Meng Chuan usually sparred with his father and Fairy Meng. But those spars were to temper his own abilities. There had been no need for him to use the Power of the Soul!
Under the night sky, Murong You jumped into Caoyun River. Soon, there was no movement.
Standing by the shore, Meng Chuan frowned and was clearly in a bad mood. By letting him escape, Murong You will definitely report what happened here to the demons. The demons will most likely send their subordinates to assassinate me.
He knew himself very well. He could only be considered a state’s genius without using the Power of the Soul. Once he used the Power of the Soul, he was considered a top-tier genius in the entire world. Just the fact that he could pursue Murong You—who had condensed a demon core—meant that the demons would definitely place great importance on this little fellow from the Eastcalm Prefecture.
Oh? He sensed a powerful aura rapidly approaching him, much faster than when he was using the Power of the Soul.
Soon, a blurry figure arrived at Caoyun River. It was an old woman holding a walking stick.
Grandaunt. His eyes lit up.
Fairy Meng stood on the river surface as her walking stick gently touched the river surface.
The entire river began to tremble, and ripples spread out in every direction—going deep into the river. At the bottom of the river, Murong You—who was fleeing at high speed—felt threads quickly wrap around him. His expression changed, and he struggled with all his might. However, the seemingly ordinary threads were extremely tough. He was unable to escape them.
A Godfiend. Murong You revealed a look of despair. This despair of powerlessness could only happen when facing a Godfiend.
His demonic energy was sealed away as the threads entered his body. The threads then began dragging Murong You out of the river, sending him flying upwards.
He was thrown out of the water and appeared on the river surface.
Murong You saw an old woman holding a walking stick on the water surface.
Fairy Meng. Murong You felt despair. She managed to catch up after all.
Murong You. Meng Chuan instantly relaxed when he saw Murong You being dragged from the river. He didn’t need to worry about news leaking out. Murong You only took a few seconds to swim 500 feet. His speed is comparable to ordinary Seamless realm experts on land. Many fish aren’t as fast as him.
Fairy Meng held onto her walking stick and walked to the riverbank. Murong You followed in tow. The threads had wrapped around him like a dumpling.
“Grandaunt.” Meng Chuan bowed respectfully.
