Archean Eon Art - Chapter 471
Chapter 471 – Entering Autumn
Meng Chuan streaked across the sky and flew towards Snow Wind City.
He took about six seconds to reach Sunset River City with his divine power, Flowing Sand. It didn’t burden him at all.
This divine power placed a huge burden on his Essence Soul. In the past, Meng Chuan could only use it for 15 seconds. After gaining a sixth-level Essence Soul, he could maintain Flowing Sand for 90 seconds. Due to this, he could use this move often. “Ah Chuan.” Liu Qiyue stood in the corridor and waited for him.
Meng Chuan landed. “How’s the situation?” asked Liu Qiyue.
“Another large World Entrance has appeared.” Meng Chuan frowned. “More and more World Entrances are appearing. The pressure on the three sects is also increasing.”
“There’s no other way,” said Liu Qiyue. “Ah Chuan, follow me.” As she spoke, she flew north.
“Oh?” Meng Chuan followed her curiously.
The couple flew to Snow Wind City’s inner city pass and stood on the inner city wall. They could see a four-kilometer-wide large World Entrance. The World Entrance was about a quarter kilometer deep. Through the World Entrance, they could clearly see the Demon Realm. As they stood on the other side of the Demon Realm, they could see a vast mountain range. They could vaguely see many demons and demon monarchs looking at the human world’s scenery. “The World Entrance has expanded again?” Meng Chuan immediately noticed the changes.
“That’s right. When you rushed to the Great Yue Dynasty, Snow Wind City’s large World Entrance experienced some changes,” said Liu Qiyue. “Previously, it was more than 3.5 kilometers wide. Now, it has widened by another quarter-kilometer. It’s nearly 4 kilometers wide now.”
“Yes,” said Meng Chuan solemnly. “The human world and the Demon Realm are gradually approaching each other, causing many changes to occur. A large World Entrance directly appeared in the Great Yue Dynasty. Many other World Entrances have expanded.”
Liu Qiyue said, “During the years I’ve been guarding Snow Wind City, this World Entrance has expanded slightly. In the past 40 years, its width has increased from 3 kilometers to 4 kilometers.”
“All the World Entrances in the world are the same.” Meng Chuan nodded. “Small World Entrances, medium-sized World Entrances, large World Entrances, and even super-large World Entrances are slowly expanding. This is the trend!”
According to predictions, the two worlds would gradually approach each other for many years. When they had reached a certain distance from each other, they would slowly separate. When that happened, many stable World Entrances would gradually shrink or even disappear.
“Ah Chuan.” Liu Qiyue worriedly said, “There are now five super-large World Entrances in the world. That means five Creation Supremacies are needed to guard them. The situation will only worsen in the future.”
“Don’t worry,” said Meng Chuan with a smile. “We’ve survived more difficult times. It’ll get better and better as time passes.”
“Yes.” Liu Qiyue looked at her husband and calmed down.
As his wife, she knew how astonishing Meng Chuan’s cultivation speed was.
Meng Chuan’s self-created Cloud Dragon Snake Movement Technique was an ultimate technique superior to the World Roving Dragon Saber. As an expert that had reached the Grotto-Heaven realm’s late stage, he was comparable to Qin Wu, Li Guan, and Bai Yaoyue—who were all at the perfected Grotto-Heaven realm.
Furthermore, those who created their own ultimate techniques were generally stronger than those who followed their predecessors’ steps. They were stronger because they had a clearer understanding of how to utilize their techniques. Their self-created techniques were also extremely suitable for themselves.
Black Sand Grotto-Heaven.
“What’s your take on Meng Chuan’s letter?” asked Bai Yaoyue as she looked at Meng Tiange and Mi Yu.
“Over the past few years, King Eastcalm has rushed over to reinforce us when an emergency occurs,” said Meng Tiange. “In the past 22 years, tens of millions of Black Sand Dynasty’s mortals have survived because of him. Let’s not even mention the dozens of Godfiends that were saved by him. He destroyed many of the demons’ plans alone. We can’t turn a blind eye when he’s asking for such a huge favor.”
Bai Yaoyue and Mi Yu nodded. “Yes.”
Meng Chuan was now the number one Patroller in the world. Everyone needed his help during dire situations.
“Furthermore, it’s time for some changes,” said Meng Tiange with a smile. “Previously, we abandoned the prefecture cities and county cities, causing our control over the commoners to decrease. Additionally, the world’s population has doubled in the past 40 years. Due to this, our control over the population further decreased.
“On the contrary, the Godfiend family clans have tens of thousands of clansmen. Some even have as many as 100,000 clansmen. With their influence, their assertion of power is even more thorough than before. In many places outside the cities, these Godfiend family clans are basically uncrowned emperors. “The pressure of guarding so many large cities is quite great. The demons can counterattack at any moment. It’s temporarily not suitable to build more prefecture cities or county cities,” continued Meng Tiange. “At this time, we need to restrain these Godfiend family clans by using the law.”
“I agree,” said Mi Yu. “King Eastcalm’s letter is a good opportunity for us to implement this
Two World Island.
“What’s your take on King Eastcalm’s letter?” Xu Yingwu looked at the illusory Zhang Chun -his good friend.
“We definitely have to give King Eastcalm face.” Zhang Chun nodded. “However, our Great Yue Dynasty’s situation is special. Many places are occupied by Regis Godfiends. Even slavery exists. It’s not easy for our Two World Island to interfere with the internal matters of the Regis Godfiends’ territories.” Xu Yingwu said, “Firstly, the world’s population is now much greater than before. Regis Godfiends control much greater populations than before. Secondly, the three major sects have constantly been expanding in the past 50 years.
“Every year, we recruit 50 disciples, just like Archean Mountain and Black Sand Grotto-Heaven. We’ve spent a large amount of our resources, causing us to have the most number of Marquis Godfiends in our sect’s history. Although we aren’t comparable to the other two sects, we still have 75 Marquis Godfiends. There isn’t even enough territory for these Marquis Godfiends.” The next 200 years were extremely crucial years.
Humans had obtained many resources from the World Gap. The three sects were also increasing their recruitment quota. They nurtured disciples with all their might, causing many more Marquis Godfiends to rise than before.
“That’s right. There’s not enough territory for our Marquis Godfiends. However, the territories of our Regis Godfiends have much greater populations than before.” Zhang Chun nodded. “Although the Regis Godfiends have contributed greatly, we have to be fair. We have to give some territory to the Marquis Godfiends.”
“King Eastcalm’s letter is a good opportunity. With the excuse of protecting the commoners and compressing the territory, more Marquis Godfiends will have territories. At the same time, the Imperial Court will have direct control over more places,” said Xu Yingwu. “To deal with the war, the influence of Two World Island’s Regis Godfiends has increased so much that it’s encroaching that of Two World Island.”
Other than the Great Zhou Dynasty, Two World Island and Black Sand Grotto-Heaven also pushed for Ministries of Supervision.
The Black Sand Dynasty was similar to the Great Zhou Dynasty.
Compared to Archean Mountain and Black Sand Grotto-Heaven, Two World Island’s internal affairs were much more chaotic. Most of the time, they were dealing with the redistribution of power. In this struggle for power, Two World Island had to use King Eastcalm’s name to enact executive orders. They still needed to go through the motions.
By doing this, it greatly increased the commoners’ statues. In the past, they were the feudal lords’ property. Their lives and deaths were controlled at their mercy. Now, their lives were at least protected by the law. The Ministries of Supervision protected them. Their status in the Great Yue Dynasty had greatly improved.
The two sects had given Meng Chuan face. Apart from owing him a favor and Meng Chuan’s significant contribution to humanity, they mainly did this because everyone expected Meng Chuan to be the strongest expert in the world soon. Furthermore, he might be invincible for thousands of years, maybe even longer.
“It’s over. It’s over. My years of hard work have gone down the drain.”
“King Eastcalm has too wide an influence. A Regis Godfiend from the Great Zhou Dynasty is interfering with our Black Sand Dynasty’s governance? However, Black Sand Grotto-Heaven actually listened to him obediently?”
“The family clan gave me the land 50 kilometers around Icewater Mountain. Now, they want to take it away?” “Don’t blame the family clan. The entire island was originally our Fenghai family’s territory. However, our territory has been reduced. We only have control over Fenghai City and 250 kilometers around it. The other areas have been taken away. Since Icewater Mountain no longer belongs to the family clan, it’s obviously not yours.”
“King Eastcalm, you destroyed me!” Countless people cursed Meng Chuan behind his back.
Many people ruled over their territories like uncrowned emperors, but all of this collapsed in the face of the tumultuous situation. They were angry at King Eastcalm, but they could only grumble to themselves secretly. They didn’t dare spout their grievances publicly.
Meng Chuan naturally didn’t care. When he read the intelligence dossiers that recorded the world’s changes, his mood lifted.Days passed.
Meng Chuan and his wife, Liu Qiyue, lived in an ordinary courtyard in Snow Wind City. They lived a peaceful life, and in the blink of an eye, autumn arrived.
The World Gap’s scenery remained unchanged throughout the four seasons.
A seemingly calm region suddenly distorted.
A passageway between two world membranes was blasted open. A figure leisurely flew through the passageway and entered the World Gap. It was none other than Monarch Peacock. Monarch Peacock scanned his surroundings.
Since I’ve come to the World Gap, it won’t be long before King Eastcalm, Meng Chuan, arrives. Monarch Peacock was very familiar with how things played out. In the past 22 years, he had fought Meng Chuan plenty of times. Both parties often came to the World Gap to cultivate.
