Chapter 268 Son Is a Peerless Genius
Boom! Sand Thicket instantly transformed into a blur as he charged out.
The other demon monarchs in the cave abode revealed looks of panic as they began fleeing frantically.
Run, run, run! Sand Thicket was extremely flustered. He knew very well that Earth Net Godfiends typically wouldn’t come to a depth of 79 kilometers underground. Even if they had a tracking method, Earth Net Godfiends wouldn’t dare to conduct underground reconnaissance at such depths! Those who dared to proceed with the reconnaissance were absolutely confident of dealing with fourth Firmament demon monarchs.
I hope that these demon monarchs under my command can scatter and divert the Godfiend’s attention so that they can buy me time to escape. Sand Thicket was anxious, but before he could escape from the palace, he discovered that lightning appeared out of nowhere in the cave palace-hundreds of bolts of lightning.
The lightning swept past all the demon monarchs—that were fleeing in all directions
—and the alarmed ordinary demons, killing them.
Sand Thicket saw the two demonesses he doted on killed by the lightning with his own eyes. Lightning struck everywhere as many parts of the cave palace collapsed. More than half of the demon monarchs died instantly. Even third Firmament demon monarchs with weaker bodies were killed instantly.
What? Sand Thicket’s demonic powers isolated him from his surroundings, blocking the lightning. Horrified, he discovered that only two third Firmament demon monarchs remained alive in the entire cave palace. They were also heavily injured. The rest were all killed.
Meng Chuan hadn’t found anything in his 80-kilometer deep underground patrols over the past three months. He was used to it Thus, Meng Chuan was extremely excited when he discovered a demon lair at such depths. He had finally found something!
It was a huge harvest!
My efforts have paid off. Meng Chuan was delighted. First, he activated his electromagnetic domain. The lightning instantly killed swaths of demons, preventing the weaker demon monarchs from escaping.
Following that, Meng Chuan stared at the wrinkly Sand Thicket.
Fourth Firmament demon monarch. It’s best if I don’t expose my identity and kill it instantly. Otherwise, it will warn them that it’s a Darkstar-level threat when he requests for help.
Requests for help were divided into different levels of danger. When humans requested reinforcements, they could indicate if it was a fourth or fifth Firmament threat.
The demons also had indicators for different levels of danger when requesting for help.
If it were to indicate that it was a Marquis Godfiend that had killed them underground, it would be very difficult for me to impersonate King White Treasure.
Meng Chuan instantly passed through countless rocks and traversed 1.5 kilometers. He caught up to Sand Thicket. The difference in speed was just too great.
Run! As Sand Thicket fled, he requested for help. He instinctively indicated that it was an Seamless-level threat. He subconsciously believed that it had to be a Regis Godfiend that had managed to find his cave abode.
Oh? Sand Thicket suddenly felt the threat. He turned to look behind him.
Behind him were countless pitch-black rocks, but Sand Thicket felt the void collapse and distort.
A crescent appeared in his eyes. It was as though it had flown over from the other end of the void. It was inconceivably fast. Sand Thicket had no time to react.
Pfft! The saber beam sliced off his head. His eyes were filled with despair. It really is a Regis Godfiend.
Perhaps only Regis Godfiends had such terrifying strength.
Following that, his consciousness dissipated.
A greater demon monarch’s vitality made it possible for them to remain alive even if their hearts were pierced. Only their heads remained a vital spot.
Phew. Meng Chuan appeared nearby. His body was covered in a layer of light, causing the surrounding void to collapse and distort. He looked at the corpse on the ground as blood surged towards Demon Slayer.
It’s indeed different after reaching the Undying Realm. My body can cause the void to distort and collapse. My Heart Intent Saber Art is even faster in the distorted void now. A fourth Firmament demon monarch didn’t even have time to react before it was killed. Meng Chuan nodded slightly. The Heart Intent Saber Art was a swift saber art. With his strength, he can send a saber beam from over 1000 feet away. However, when the void was distorted, his saber beams could travel even further. A 1000-foot distance shortened by half. His saber art naturally became unpredictable.
The fourth Firmament demon monarch could detect the saber beam, but it couldn’t move its body in time. It should be a newly-advanced fourth Firmament demon monarch. Perhaps only a peak fourth or fifth Firmament demon monarch can truly test my current strength.
The one he had just killed was indeed too weak for Meng Chuan.
Sand Thicket’s lifeblood was devoured completely as his body disintegrated into powder. Only three strange bone beads remained of his body. Beside him were weapons, robes, and other items.
Meng Chuan waved his hand and put them away. Then, he returned to Sand Thicket’s lair and killed the two heavily injured third Firmament demon monarchs. He then stored all the demon monarch corpses and spoils of war into his Grotto-Heaven Magic Bead.
That felt great. I killed a fourth Firmament demon monarch and 27 ordinary demon monarchs. Meng Chuan was rather excited. I heard that in the first year of the large-scale demon invasion, King White Treasure killed five fourth Firmament demon monarchs. I only killed one after three months of patrolling the underground. That isn’t much.
Meng Chuan continued his underground reconnaissance.
28th June. Jiang State Capital, Meng Manor’s Lake Heart Pavilion.
After the stimulus, Meng You and Meng An became more diligent in their cultivation.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Meng An practiced his spear arts under the shade of a tree alone. Meng You painted in her study. The siblings had different personalities. The sister was more reserved and liked to paint. Her painting skills were rather brilliant, but she was still far from reaching the stage where she could seek answers from her inner self. After all, art and calligraphy geniuses were rare in human history. It was rare for one to reach the level of seeking answers from oneself at a young age.
Meng Chuan had suffered a huge loss when he was a child. He painted alone. Painting could alleviate his mental fatigue. His painting also contained his longing for his mother and loneliness. Only when he painted did he truly have no worries. As such, he improved leaps and bounds with painting.
Meng An practiced his spear arts and felt a fire burning in his heart.
Every since half a month ago, he felt crushed by what he saw. However, he knew very well that he couldn’t change this world with his current strength. To change the world, he had to become an incomparably mighty Godfiend.
Shall be torn apart!
Meng An thrust out angrily, as though he wanted to create a huge hole in the world.
Amid his intense emotions, the strike became very natural. Under the formless guidance of his Quintessential Energy and body, the fusion became closer to perfection. The explosive power behind his attack was terrifying. It stirred the Heaven and Earth powers, causing the Heaven and Earth powers to gather in the spear naturally.
He thrust the spear furiously. Flaming spear beams appeared and pierced through the dense leaves in front of him, disintegrating countless leaves.
Meng An stood rooted to the ground and looked down at the spear in his hand. Force? This is Force? Meng An was surprised and delighted
A figure appeared beside him. It was Liu Qiyue. Liu Qiyue looked at her son in surprise.
“Mom, I’ve comprehended Force.” Meng An looked at his mother. “Show it to me again.” Liu Qiyue was also extremely excited. To comprehend Force at the age of 13? This was faster than what she and Meng Chuan had expected.
That evening, the sky was dark.
Meng Chuan streaked across the sky and landed in Lake Heart Pavilion. Exhausted, he walked into the hall. Having used his divine power continuously—the Divine Eye of Lightning-he was mentally exhausted. “Dad,” shouted Meng You and Meng An as Liu Qiyue sat by the side and smiled.
Meng Chuan sat on the chair in exhaustion. He revealed a smile as he looked at his wife and daughter. “You’er and An’er, you haven’t eaten?”
“An’er has something to tell you,” said Liu Qiyue.
“Oh, what’s the matter?” Meng Chuan picked up a cup of tea and took a big gulp.
“Dad.” Meng An looked excitedly at his father. “I’ve comprehended Force.”
Meng Chuan spat out a mouthful of tea, and it sprayed onto his son’s face.
Meng An blinked and looked at his father.
“You have reached the Realm of Force?” Meng Chuan stared at his son. His son was a peerless genius?
