Chapter 181: The Great Zhou’s Situation
The wrinkles on Zhang Yunfeng’s face deepened, looking like he had aged considerably. However, he smiled happily. “I have one foot in the coffin; yet, I managed to kill a fourth Firmament Skydemon! This is the strongest opponent I’ve ever killed in my entire life.”
“Me too!” Yang Fang carried his two large axes and smiled. “Previously, these fourth Firmament Skydemons were extremely cunning. It would be difficult to encounter them. They only dare to appear now because Marquis Godfiends are guarding the various medium-sized city passes. Furthermore, there’s Senior Brother Zhang and Junior Brother Meng! Only with the three of us working together did we manage to kill a fourth Firmament Skydemon.”
“If not for the two of you, I would be fleeing from him,” said Meng Chuan with a smile.
“Without Junior Brother Meng, he would have long fled,” said Yang Fang.
“Stop flattering each other! The three of us worked together to kill Blackwater Palace Lord.” Zhang Yunfeng smiled.
Meng Chuan and company suddenly looked up.
A man with a pair of Quintessential Essence wings on his back descended.
“Greetings, Senior Brothers.” A few Great Solar Godfiends had Quintessential Essence Wings. For example, Liu Qiyue’s Phoenix Divine Body was capable of producing one.
“Junior Brother Mo.” Zhang Yunfeng, Meng Chuan, and Yang Fang looked at him.
“During our pursuit of the demon monarchs and Skydemons in Jiang State Capital, we discovered a piece of intelligence. The leader of the invasion is a fourth Firmament Skydemon, Blackwater Palace Lord. Therefore, Dean Chang sent me over immediately. I saw Senior Brother Zhang’s domain envelop an area spanning several kilometers. The commotion caused the ground to quake violently. Were you dealing with Blackwater Palace Lord?”
Zhang Yunfeng said with a smile, “Yes, but the trouble has been resolved.”
“It’s been resolved? Where’s Blackwater Palace Lord? Has he escaped?” asked the winged man urgently.
“He didn’t escape. He’s right there.” Zhang Yunfeng pointed to a nearby spot where the Water Splitters and other items remained.
The winged man was puzzled.
“His weapons and other items are still here. As for his body, it has turned to dust.” Zhang Yunfeng smiled happily and asked, “By the way, how’s the situation in the city’s other regions?”
Meng Chuan and Yang Fang weren’t in a rush to help. With their tokens, they knew that no more Godfiends were dying in the city.
“The situation is pretty good,” explained the winged man immediately. “Senior Brother Meng killed a group of demon monarchs in the south very quickly. The danger in the east was also resolved by the three of you. The other Godfiends mainly dealt with the city’s northern and western regions. We have an advantage in overall strength. Our Great Solar Godfiends are also relatively stronger. Only a few Skydemons and demon monarchs escaped.”
“Most Godfiends were killed in the city’s eastern region,” whispered the winged man.
Zhang Yunfeng and Meng Chuan sighed secretly.
“It was unlikely they could escape when they encountered Blackwater Palace Lord.” Zhang Yunfeng shook his head.
Meng Chuan nodded as well. Even he had nearly lost his life after being ambushed by Blackwater Palace Lord. Let alone the ordinary Godfiends.
“Senior Brother Zhang, Senior Brother Yang, I’ll head elsewhere in the city to take a look,” said Meng Chuan. “I’ll patrol the area and quickly kill all the demons as soon as possible.”
“Junior Brother, be careful,” said Zhang Yunfeng with a smile.
“Young people are different. He can go back into the fight right after using forbidden Godfiend spells,” said Yang Fang with a smile.
Meng Chuan nodded as lightning curled around his body. He transformed into a blurry figure—that streaked across the sky—appearing more than two kilometers away. His speed increased dramatically after imprinting second-level Lightning Runes on his body.
He would have unparalleled speed if he became a Marquis Godfiend!
Time to see if we’ve missed anything. Meng Chuan continued roaming around the city. He hadn’t cast his forbidden Godfiend spell for very long. He had only used a forbidden spell after he attained his perfected Saber Soul. He hadn’t used a forbidden spell as long as Zhang Yunfeng and Yang Fang. Furthermore, he was young, and the body cultivation system made his lifeforce very vigorous. He only needed eight hours to recover fully. He had only suffered minor injuries during the battle with Blackwater Palace Lord.
The invasion of Jiang State Capital gradually came to an end. However, the flames of war continued raging in the rest of the world!
Supremacy Qin Wu sat in a large hall. On the hall’s walls was a massive map of the human world. The map of the Great Zhou Dynasty was especially detailed, and lights blinked everywhere on the map.
Red, dark red, black…
The different colors represented different threat levels.
“Supremacy, Cloud State’s Red Phoenix Prefecture has requested for reinforcements again. The threat is that of a fourth Firmament. This is the ninth request for help in 15 minutes.” A group of people beside him carefully observed the map on the wall and gave timely reports from time to time.
“Make them give up,” said Supremacy Qin Wu coldly. “Make them give up immediately.”
“They aren’t willing to give up,” said an elder in a low voice. “They want to try resisting.”
Supremacy Qin Wu calmly said, “Tell them again that there’s no rescue! Make them give up!”
As he made his decision, Supremacy Qin Wu sighed inwardly. Cloud State is too remote, and Red Phoenix Prefecture is even more remote. It requires Regis Godfiends to travel over 3,000 kilometers to reach them. I cannot affect the entire world’s reinforcements for a single prefecture.
The demons and the Skydemon Sect hid in the dark. They could sneak attack on any city in the world. Archean Mountain had to guard all of the Great Zhou Dynasty’s states and prefectures. Even if they held the strength advantage in the human world, there wasn’t much difference after distributing their forces across the world.
“Supremacy, East Harbor Prefecture has asked for help again! The danger is at the fourth Firmament!” shouted another disciple immediately.
“King East River is rushing over. He’s about to arrive. Let them hold on,” instructed Supremacy Qin Wu.
For the sake of hundreds of city passes’ mortals, Marquis Godfiends needed to preside over medium-sized city passes. They didn’t have enough manpower. A small number of medium-sized city passes relied on defensive treasures to hold back the demons.
However, the Regis Godfiends were sent out in full force! Even Archean Mountain Lord and Elder Yi had descended the mountain! They guarded the Great Zhou Dynasty’s most important lands. For example, King East River was in charge of guarding the five states around Wu State!
However, the demons’ attack happened simultaneously. A Regis Godfiend was unable to split himself. He had to prioritize certain areas depending on the threat level and distance from Wu State. King East River was rather busy because the Wu, Jiang, and Huang State were the places the demons had focused their attacks on. The first city he reinforced was Wu State Capital. The second was East Harbor Prefecture. Although East Harbor Prefecture wasn’t a state capital, it had a population of over three million.
As for Jiang State Capital? Since they handled the threat themselves, King East River naturally helped those who couldn’t.
“Supremacy,” someone said anxiously. “Five Regis Godfiends are stationed in five regions of the Great Zhou Dynasty. But now, the demons are attacking six states… Some Regis Godfiends are unable to help. Should we redistribute the Regis Godfiends?”
“No!” Someone immediately retorted, “The demons are very cunning. It’s a common strategy to lure the tiger out the mountain. It was like this in the past. After Wu State Capital and Jiang State Capital were attacked, they immediately attacked several prefecture cities with high populations. The Regis Godfiends had been unable to deal with all of them. I’m worried that if we mobilize the Godfiends from other places, the demons would suddenly attack other regions.”
“Continue monitoring the situation in your various regions. If there’s anything new, report immediately,” instructed Supremacy Qin Wu coldly.
The pressure on Supremacy Qin Wu was immense as well. He knew very well that he had to send five Regis Godfiends to guard the most important regions! He had to prevent a major collapse of any one place.
If something unexpected happened after the situation stabilized, the cities still had their defensive treasures.
“Supremacy.” Someone reported excitedly, “The danger at Jiang State Capital has been resolved! The fourth Firmament threat has been killed!”
Everyone in the hall was astonished.
“The fourth Firmament Skydemon or demon monarch has been killed?”
“The situation in Jiang State Capital is still alright. They managed to kill a fourth Firmament threat without using the defensive treasure?”
They were very shocked.
Supremacy Qin Wu was experienced. He had even seen a Great Solar Godfiend kill a fourth Firmament demon monarch in a one-on-one battle. However, his eyes lit up because he felt delighted. It was about time for some good news.
“Have Zhang Yunfeng and Meng Chuan reinforce Jiang State’s Changfeng Prefecture immediately!” Supremacy Qin ordered.
“Yes.” The disciple in charge of Jiang State immediately began sending the mobilization orders.
From Supremacy Qin Wu’s point of view, he understood the Great Zhou Dynasty’s overall situation. From an absolutely harsh perspective, letting the people from hundreds of city passes migrate by themselves minimized the Godfiend casualties. However, Supremacy Qin Wu also knew that if that were the case, it would negatively impact many Godfiends’ hearts. The Godfiends had sacrificed themselves to defend the mortals for generations! This had long become Godfiends’ custom.
The torch of protecting humanity was passed down from one generation of Godfiends to another! If they gave up a population of an entire state without a fight, they would no longer be Godfiends. Those who fought against the heavens and earth for humanity were Godfiends!
