Chapter 1225: You Needn’t Mention It

The killing desire intensified on Liao Yunjian’s face. He took the lead in dashing into the midst of the ten Armor Devils.
A raging bellow was heard, thundering through heaven and earth. Liao Yunjian grasped a silver long sword in his hand. The aura from his body surged out. He was like a sword deity descending upon the earth一his power was overwhelming.
He waved his sword and a giant sword shadow, resembling a heavenly sword that could cleave the heavens and the earth, broke through the air. With the stunning power of Gold Ultimacy, it slashed at the ten Armor Devils.
The ten Armor Devils had seen Su Mo and his companions. They roared ferociously and moved toward Liao Yunjian to attack.
All ten Armor Devils were holding war sabers. The overwhelming Demonic Qi that they emitted were like billowing fire beacons. As they struck out their war sabers, their saber Qi was so strong and powerful that they could almost cleave the earth.
“Boom boom boom!”
The giant sword shadow struck down and clashed directly with the saber Qi of the ten Armor Devils. Within a split second, there was a deafening explosion destroying several hundred kilometers of space around them.
A collision一Liao Yunjian and the ten Armor Devils were on par with each other.
“He has reasons to be proud!” Su Mo, who had finally caught up, saw Liao Yunjian’s strength and was secretly stunned. Although he was conceited, this man was truly powerful.
He estimated his own strength quietly. His power was quite similar to Liao Yunjian’s and definitely not much stronger.
The combined attacks only destroyed several hundred kilometers of surrounding space because the space domain was extremely resilient.
When Su Mo left the Firmament World, he discovered that space outside was several dozen times more resilient than in the Firmament World.
Space in the Firmament World was extremely fragile. Su Mo could destroy 5,000 kilometers of space with a casual wave of his hand in the Firmament World but could not do the same in the outside world.
“You people protect the rear. I will do the slaying!” Liao Yunjian shouted out his instructions to Su Mo and his companions and then resumed attacking the ten Armor Devils.
“Die!” Liao Yunjian stretched himself erect and roared quietly. He waved the sword in his hand several times in succession. Dozens of giant sword shadows slashed down from the firmament, engulfing the ten Armor Devils.
This attack was even more powerful. Every sword shadow was over 300 meters long. Their cataclysmic power could shatter the realms. His strong Gold Ultimacy seemed to enable these keen sword shadows to shatter everything.
“Attack!” The ten Armor Devils were not weak. They released their most powerful strength with their looming Demonic Qi. Their demonic aura overwhelmed the heavens and they started battling Liao Yunjian.
Boom boom boom!!
Continuous loud explosions… air blasts surged everywhere as powerful Demonic Qi billowed.
Su Mo, Han Ying, and Nie Qian did not attack. They were protecting the rear. Since he wanted to battle the ten Armor Devils alone, they would not interfere.
“Ah! Ah! Ah!”
Soon, the Armor Devils incurred casualties. Five of them were slain by Liao Yunjian.
All of the slain Armor Devils were of Lvl 1 Martial Emperor Realm. They were weaker. Of the remaining five, four were Lvl 2 and the leader was Lvl 3.
The leader of the Armor Devils who was in Lvl 3 Martial Emperor Realm called his men to retreat decisively. He saw Liao Yunjian’s power and immediately forced the other four to flee quickly.
“Kill!” Liao Yunjian would not let the moment slip. He dashed forward to deliver his death blow.
Nie Qian and Han Ying followed closely behind him.
Su Mo did not follow suit. After the three had gone far ahead, he mobilized his Devouring Martial Soul. Two demonic shadows were dragged up from the sea water by his devouring power.
Su Mo had looked clearly. Five Armor Devils had been slain and three of them had been destroyed—physical body and Demonic Soul together.
There were two Demonic Souls, however, that had remained intact. They had plunged into the sea water below.
“Damn! What power is that?”
The two demonic shadows spoke in human tongue under the influence of his devouring power. They bellowed angrily and kept struggling.
The two of them were not completely dead. Although their bodies had been destroyed, their Demonic Souls were still intact, ensuring their survival.
Now, however, they felt an overwhelming life-and-death crisis.
“Not bad!” Urging his Devouring Martial Soul on, Su Mo nodded. These Demonic Souls of the Armor Devils were similar to Fighting Souls. Devouring them would probably be no different from devouring Fighting Souls.
The two Demonic Souls did not stop struggling. Without their bodies, they could not resist Su Mo’s devouring force and were soon dragged in front of him.
The two Demonic Souls roared angrily. They struck out and attacked Su Mo. Two insubstantial fist shadows hurtled toward him.
However, without a body, their attack was only a combination of their Souls and Devil Ultimacy. Their power was not enough to intimidate Su Mo.
Su Mo waved his hand and instantly broke the attack.
The two Demonic Souls were then quickly devoured by his Devouring Martial Soul.
Su Mo clearly sensed these two powerful Souls gushing into his Devouring Martial Soul and strengthening it.
He still had a long way to go before he could reach Rank 7 Heaven Class.
Su Mo did not delay. He immediately dashed toward Liao Yunjian and his companions.
It did not take much time. After 15 minutes he caught up with them.
They were no longer going after the Armor Devils and had all slowed down.
“What took you so long? Where did you go?” Liao Yunjian asked coldly as he saw Su Mo catch up.
“I was out destroying two Demonic Souls!” Su Mo said quietly.
“Oh, is that so?” Liao Yunjian broke into disdainful laughter. “Your current strength isn’t good enough to deal with the Armor Devils, so you can only manage their escaping Demonic Souls!”
Su Mo glanced at him and sneered in his heart. Although the man had looked down on him, his suggestion was not that bad. After all, Su Mo was really after those Demonic Souls.
Liao Yunjian cast his eye on Nie Qian and Han Ying and rested his gaze on the latter. He smiled. “Miss Han, your cultivation isn’t that strong either. Take precautions. But you needn’t worry with me around!”
“Ha ha! Brother Liao is indeed remarkable. It is my honor to join your team for experience!” Han Ying smiled slightly as she spoke tenderly.
“Ha ha! It’s just a little display of strength from me. You needn’t mention it!” Liao Yunjian guffawed and spoke modestly. Although his words were modest, an arrogant look was on his face. His eyes flashed with complacency.
He had fought all ten Armor Devils alone to show off and earn the favor of the beauty.
Su Mo saw this and shook his head quietly. Even a stupid man could see that Liao Yunjian was going after Han Ying.
However, all of these had nothing to do with him. He would be happy to simply devour Demonic Souls.
“Brother Liao, let’s go! A few Armor Devils have escaped. I believe they will bring back more powerful Armor Devils to avenge themselves!” Nie Qian said.
“Very well, let’s go!” Liao Yunjian nodded, set the direction, and then flew away before everyone else.
Su Mo and the other two followed closely behind him.
There were a great number of Armor Devils in the Demonic Clouds Sea because they liked to feed on their fellow beasts in the sea. Doing this helped them quickly improve their strengths.
Over the sea, the four encountered a few Armor Devils scattered here and there.
With the help of Han Ying’s Martial Soul, they evaded the more powerful Armor Devils. Whenever they met weaker ones, they struck to kill.
