The Dugus looked solemn. Even though Su Mo had only injured Zhan Luan, it also proved how powerful he was.
The stronger Su Mo was, the greater the importance the Emperor Xuan Palace and Sky-sea Pavilion would place on him; it would be more difficult for them to snatch the Demonic Sword.
However, Dugu Sheng and the others felt that Su Mo was so powerful largely because of the Demonic Sword. This further strengthened their determination to seize the sword.
“I have to get the Billion Demonic Sword!” Dugu Sheng gritted his teeth.
The Billion Demonic Sword would become Dugu Sheng’s weapon once the Dugus get their hands on it because he was the successor of the Master of the Dugus.
Up in the sky.
“You are the only one who could injure me amongst the younger generation!”
Zhan Luan’s expression was somber and there was a cold glint in his eyes. He was furious.
His defense had been broken, and he felt embarrassed.
“Your injury is just the beginning!”
Su Mo laughed lightly. He did not waste any time, and started to attack Zhan Luan once more. He waved the Demonic Sword and numerous rays of sword Qi scattered and attacked ferociously.
The dense sword Qi fell like the rain, enveloping Zhan Luan completely.
At the same time, Su Mo wielded the Natal Spiritual Sword once more and charged towards Zhan Luan.
The Spiritual Sword glimmered and disappeared in the void. It was unknown which part of Zhan Luan it would attack.
“You won’t get another chance! Let me show you what a true invincible defense is!”
Zhan Luan saw this and bellowed, no longer underestimating Su Mo.
The light behind him shimmered, and a large figure appeared behind him once more.
The figure was exceptionally large, measuring a hundred feet wide. There seemed to be a vast expanse of land, covered densely with mountains, rivers and streams within the figure. It looked like a miniature continent.
There were six flashing gold halos on this figure.
Rank 6 Heaven Class Martial Soul!
Endless earth property Spiritual Qi in heaven and earth converged towards Zhan Luan the moment the figure appeared. It formed a grey armor around Zhan Luan in a split second, enveloping his body perfectly.
The Spiritual Sword hit Zhan Luan and emitted a dull crash before it rebounded off him.
With the earth property armor, Zhan Luan’s defense was terrifyingly and unimaginably powerful.
Even though the Spiritual Sword had managed to tear through Zhan Luan’s armor, its ability to attack had been exhausted. It was no longer able to tear through Zhan Luan’s flesh.
Su Mo attacked with hundreds of thousands of sword Qi in the next moment. It cut down on Zhan Luan’s body viciously.
“Boom boom boom!”
There was a series of explosions as Zhan Luan’s large figure was buried by the sword Qi.
Following that, a large amount of sword Qi shattered into pieces while the earth property power continued to explode unceasingly, forming a devastating blast wave that swept across a radius of 1000 miles.
Moments later, the blast subsided and Zhan Luan’s imposing figure appeared once more, unscathed.
However, Zhan Luan’s earth property armor that surrounded his body had been completely destroyed, shattering into non-existence.
However, the next moment, an endless force of earth property gathered upon Zhan Luan, forming a thick armor again.
“This…!” Su Mo was stunned. He had never imagined that Zhan Luan had Twin Martial Souls and that his level was higher than Shangguan Hao’s Sun Martial Soul.
Zhan Luan’s Martial Soul was the most advanced Martial Soul Su Mo had ever seen.
And at this moment, everyone who saw the scene at the Jade Cloud Lake was all taken aback.
“Oh my god! It’s really the Twin Martial Souls!”
“It’s the Earth Martial Soul! And it’s even the Rank 6 Heaven Class Martial Soul! It is able to control earth property!”
“This defense is invincible! No, it’s more than invincible!”
“I have no doubts that Su Mo would definitely lose!”
The crowd burst into a commotion as everyone was astonished by Zhan Luan’s strength.
Even the experts of the older generation were overcome with shock.
It was truly the Twin Martial Souls. The rare, one in ten-thousand years Twin Martial Souls. And it was even in the Rank 6 Heaven Class!
Most importantly, the earth property was known for its strong defense. Together with Zhan Luan’s impressive physical defense, he was undefeatable.
Su Mo was bound to lose!
This thought occurred to everyone at this moment.
Even Xi’er who had plenty of confidence in Su Mo earlier felt dejected. She did not think Su Mo could possibly win the battle.
It was not that she was looking down on Su Mo but Zhan Luan was simply too strong.
Xi’er pondered for a moment but could not think of any possible method Su Mo could use to break through Zhan Luan’s defense.
“This spells trouble!” Xi’er frowned.
Sikong Yan and Wenren Tiandu both looked solemn. Was Su Mo really going to lose?
On the peak where the Flood-dragon tribe stood.
“Teng’er, Su Mo is indeed powerful enough and I’m impressed. However, he would not be able to defeat Zhan Luan!” Dragon Emperor Tuntian shook his head and said.
“Sigh!” Long Teng sighed. Su Mo’s abilities were within his expectations, but Zhan Luan had exceeded his expectations completely.
He had once fought Zhan Luan more than a year ago. Back then, the two had only exchanged about a dozen blows, feeling each other out. He was no match for Zhan Luan then.
Back then, Long Teng thought that Zhan Luan was only slightly stronger than himself.
But he understood now that Zhan Luan had not fought him with his full strength.
At the very least, Zhan Luan had never used his Earth Martial Soul.
Long Teng did not pin any hopes on Su Mo anymore. Even an idiot could see that Su Mo would not be able to defeat Zhan Luan no matter what.
In the air.
Zhan Luan smiled at Su Mo as he looked at him. He said with arrogance, “Su Mo, I was born indomitable, how will you fight me?”
Zhan Luan felt very satisfied. He had displayed his hidden card without hesitation, and he felt greatly refreshed.
In the past, the top echelons of the Warlord Hall had refused to let him use the Twin Martial Souls for fear that his talent for it would be exposed and that it would lead to him being killed.
There were no true secrets in the world, news of his Twin Martial souls had spread. Yet, no one had ever seen it before. They had only seen or heard hints of it, so no one believed it.
Now that he was sufficiently powerful and had grown completely, he could finally showcase the power of the Twin Martial Souls without hesitation.
“Indomitable? I don’t think so!” Su Mo narrowed his eyes as a silver of shock ran through him. Then, he calmed down.
“Do you think you can break through my defense?” Zhan Luan’s eyes had a playful glint in them.
“We’ll find out once we try!” Su Mo said indifferently. His expression was very grave, for he would be in trouble if he could not break through Zhan Luan’s defense.
“Then show your hand! I want to see how you’d break through my defense.”
Zhan Luan saw that Su Mo did not seem to be arrogant, andhe grew curious. Did Su Mo still have a card hidden up his sleeve?
However, hidden card or not, if it was not powerful enough. Su Mo would still find it hard to defeat him. Furthermore, there was more to his Martial Soul than he had shown.
