Archean Eon Art - Chapter 477
Chapter 477 – Choice
The three Imperial Lords watched what was happening in Snow Wind Pass from the other side of the World Entrance.
“Liu Qiyue cast Phoenix’s Nirvana, and has unleashed her phoenix flames without restraint?” When Lady Blackmoon saw this scene, she sent a voice transmission. “Her phoenix flames are protecting Snow Wind Pass, which spans 75 kilometers. She is using an extremely astonishing amount of phoenix flames.”
“That’s right.” Imperial Lord Starquix nodded and sent a voice transmission. “With such a crazy eruption of strength, she will burn her lifespan several times faster than normal.”
During Phoenix’s Nirvana, if one didn’t do anything, the energy expenditure would be minimal. There would be minimal burden on one’s body. It consumed one’s lifespan at a low rate.
If one were to use a massive amount of phoenix flames to protect a massive city-like what Liu Qiyue was currently doing-one’s lifespan would be consumed several times faster than normal.
“She’s going all out just to save over ten million mortals?” Emperor Roc was surprised by her actions, causing him to laugh. “I’m somewhat impressed by this girl.”
“She’s still Meng Chuan’s wife,” said Lady Blackmoon. “Meng Chuan has ruined many of our plans.”
“I’ve read the intelligence on them. Meng Chuan and his wife, Liu Qiyue, were childhood sweethearts. They cultivated together on Archean Mountain and left the mountain together. The relationship between this husband-wife duo is very deep,” said Imperial Lord Starquix via voice transmission. “I’m wondering if Meng Chuan’s personality will change drastically after Liu Qiyue dies to save these mortals. Will his cultivation come to a halt?”
“Back then, King True Martial sank to a nadir because of love.” Emperor Roc smiled and nodded. “However, Meng Chuan rose to prominence much faster than King True Martial. He probably won’t sink into oblivion easily.”
“If he does sink into oblivion, it will be an unexpected gain,” said Lady Blackmoon laughingly via voice transmission.
As Liu Qiyue used her phoenix flames to protect the entire Snow Wind Pass, she drew her bow and shot arrows at the black water.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
She could increase her offensive power by using the arrows.
Her arrows tore through the churning black water, arcing within it. The arrows parted the black water completely. However, the vast black water didn’t suffer any damage.
After casting Phoenix’s Nirvana, Liu Qiyue’s peak Regis Godfiend strength rose to the peak Creation realm. Her arrows had the strength of a threshold Imperial Lord. Every arrow was slightly stronger than Monarch Peacock’s full strength. However, they couldn’t injure Patriarch Poison Dragon at all.
Ah Chuan told me that Patriarch Poison Dragon’s strength increased greatly after the three Imperial Lords nurtured it. It’s undying body practically makes it an unkillable fifth Firmament demon monarch. I can’t do anything to its body. Liu Qiyue understood this when she saw Patriarch Poison Dragon appear. I’m consuming my lifespan too quickly because my phoenix flames are spread across a 100-kilometer radius.
I have to suppress Patriarch Poison Dragon. With a thought, Liu Qiyue immediately attempted to suppress the black water with a large amount of phoenix flames.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The vast Blackwater Body suddenly separated into nine black dragons. Every black dragon was 15 to 20 kilometers long. The black dragons could be seen in Snow Wind Pass’s northern, southern, eastern, and western regions. Some flew in the sky, while some were underground.
A portion of the black water clung to the World Entrance tightly, while another portion coiled around it.
The nine black dragons roared.
No matter how the phoenix flames suppressed them, the nine black dragons remained completely unharmed.
“What’s happening in the sky?”.
Snow Wind Pass’s countless residents saw golden flames filling the sky. The flames covered everything in the city. Through the flames, one could barely see the churning black water beyond. Soon, the black water transformed into massive black dragons!
Several massive black dragons swam in the sky.
The residents watched everything in horror. “Are ten million mortals really worth you consuming so much of your lifespan? Patriarch Poison Dragon’s voice resounded across the city as he watched Liu Qiyu leisurely.
By massacring Snow Wind Pass’s populationwhich was over ten million-he would gain over a billion credits. Liu Qiyue’s life was of equal worth. Since Liu Qiyue was Meng Chuan’s wife and a Regis Godfiend with a phoenix bloodline, the demons had placed a massive bounty on her-her life was worth one billion credits.
“Is it worth it?” Liu Qiyue didn’t hesitate to protect Snow Wind Pass. When she had first left the mountain with her husband, they had risked their lives at North River Pass. Back then, Godfiends had died in battle.
When she and her husband lived incognito at Gu Mountain Prefecture, they had worked together to kill demon monarchs. They had protected many county cities and prefecture cities during their stay at Gu Mountain Prefecture. During that time, she had also seen many Godfiends die in battle.
Later, when she was in charge of guarding a city, she saw Marquis Godfiends—who were guarding the city-also dying in battle.
The couple had lived to this day, but many of their companions had fallen.
Her fallen companions had sacrificed their lives to fend off the demons and protect the mortals. How could Liu Qiyue retreat?
Due to the fact that her phoenix flames had spread across nearly 100 kilometers, Liu Qiyue burned her lifespan at an insane rate. Due to Phoenix’s Nirvana, Liu Qiyue’s body, Essence Soul, and technique realm improved very quickly. Insights into the fire lineage constantly surged into her mind. Liu Qiyue was already a peak Regis Godfiend. With the numerous insights she was gaining, she finally stepped into the Grotto-Heaven realm completely. When under Phoenix’s Nirvana, one experienced no bottleneck during a breakthrough. This was because insights constantly surged into one’s mind when under Phoenix’s Nirvana.
Due to this, Liu Qiyue stepped straight into the Grotto-Heaven realm with the fire lineage. The moment she reached the Grotto-Heaven realm, she naturally gained better control over the phoenix bloodline in her body. As Liu Qiyue controlled her phoenix bloodline’s power more exquisitely, her body transformed rapidly. Her bones turned crystalline, becoming much tougher than before. At the same time, a faint red glow appeared around her body as fiery-red runes appeared between her eyebrows.
Snow Wind Pass is in danger. On the Bloodblade Disc, Meng Chuan maintained his divine power-Flowing Sandas he rushed towards Snow Wind Pass at full speed.
I take nine seconds to reach Snow Wind Pass from the World Gap. Meng Chuan was very anxious. The only thing he could currently do was comfort himself as he rushed to Liu Qiyue. Qiyue is a peak Regis Godfiend. Once she casts Phoenix’s Nirvana, she should be able to deal with all dangers. Nothing serious can happen to her in nine seconds.
Quick, quick, quick. I must get there faster. Meng Chuan kept trying to calm himself, but he remained worried about his wife because he didn’t know what had happened at Snow Wind Pass. He only knew that Snow Wind Pass had sent a life-and-death help request.
Snow Wind Pass appeared in front of him.
Meng Chuan immediately saw everything
Massive black dragons-15 to 20 kilometers long-coiled around Snow Wind Pass. The boundless phoenix flames spread in every direction, protecting Snow Wind Pass heavily. Liu Qiyue—the source of the phoenix flamesstood in midair as she blocked the black water.
All the phoenix flames dissipated as their energy returned to the world.
Huh? Patriarch Poison Dragon was astonished to see all the phoenix flames dissipate. She isn’t protecting the mortals any longer? He looked at Liu Qiyue.
Liu Qiyue was bathed in flames.She was like a fire god as she drew her bow and shot an arrow.
Golden flames—which seemed sentientinstantly shot towards one of the black dragons. The black dragon didn’t even have time to dodge before it was hit by the arrow.
Chi! Chi! Chi!
The arrow pierced the black dragon, and all nine black dragons erupted in golden flames simultaneously.
“Ah-” All nine black dragons let out painful wails at the same time. Their wails echoed throughout the world, and the black water naturally dissipated.
The remaining black water rushed into the World Entrance and fled back to the Demon Realm. At the same time, a roar could be heard from the stream of black water. “Imperial Lords, save me! Please save me, Imperial Lords!”
“What?” The three Imperial Lords on the other side of the World Entrance were somewhat shocked when they saw what happened.
Emperor Roc was alarmed by the golden flames. “Undying Phoenix’s divine fire?”
“Undying Divine Fire?”
Legend had it that it was nearly impossible to extinguish a phoenix’s flame once touched by
“Save me-” The black water stream completely vanished when it was midway through the World Entrance.
The black water was burned to nothingness.
Patriarch Poison Dragon died.
A weapon and treasures fell to the ground. A dark-cyan bead landed in the World Entrance.
Liu Qiyue waved her hand, and the treasures flew towards her.
“Qiyue.” Meng Chuan flew in front of Liu Qiyue.
Liu Qiyue made the flames on her body converge as she smiled at Meng Chuan.
