Chapter 1238: Devouring Ultimacy
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo shook his head in frustration and then calmly sat in meditation.
Time passed by slowly. About two hours later, Flaming Ghost Sage finally moved.
“Young man, if what you said is true, you’re the largest variable in the universe!” The Ghost Sage said simply.
“What do you mean?” Su Mo asked, puzzled.
“You don’t have to know it but just focus on cultivating.” The Ghost Sage said. He had been struck dumb by what he had heard, so he took a while to restore himself.
With his strength and knowledge, he seldom felt shocked by things in the universe, but Su Mo’s Martial Soul really appalled him.
He knew that if Su Mo was not cut down halfway, he would rise incredibly and become a world-shaking expert who could sweep up and awe the universe horribly.
Such an incredible Martial Soul could absolutely enter the top five of the List of Archean Martial Souls, or even the top three.
Why would it not be listed as number one? Because Flaming Ghost Sage himself could not tell how powerful the top Martial Souls were.
Flaming Ghost Sage was also shocked by Su Mo’s talent, so he needed to take more careful consideration before escaping.
“I will naturally do my best to cultivate, and I hope the predecessor can guide me carefully!” Su Mo said with a faint smile.
Though he said that, he did not trust the Flaming Ghost Sage completely.
“Well, I will instruct you patiently!” Flaming Ghost Sage answered in the same tone, showing no clue of what he was thinking.
“Good. Senior, could you please tell me what sort of Ultimacy I should perceive to evolve my Martial Soul into the Fighting Soul?” Su Mo asked seriously.
“Devouring Ultimacy, of course!” Flaming Ghost Sage said.
Su Mo asked in surprise, “Is there a Devouring Ultimacy?”
Devouring Ultimacy perfectly matched his Devouring Martial Soul. It was even named similarly.
“Only by perceiving this Ultimacy can you use your Devouring Martial Soul to its utmost.” Flaming Ghost Sage said.
“Okay, I will perceive this Ultimacy.” Su Mo answered in delight. He made the decision promptly because he also knew that the Ultimacy was absolutely the right fit for him.
He had finally made a choice, and now it was time to perceive the Ultimacy.
Su Mo left his tower for the Shenwu Academy’s Ultimacy Sacred Mountain.
The Ultimacy Sacred Mountain was not in the Academy but in a Small World.
The entrance of the Small World was set in the space named Ultimacy Hall.
Su Mo went to the Ultimacy Hall and entered the Small World where the Ultimacy Sacred Mountain was located.
The Small World was not large, with a radius of about 500 miles. In its centered towered a sky-reaching giant mountain.
The mountain took up a tremendous area and was tens of thousands of meters high. It stabbed the sky like an exceedingly high pillar.
The mountain was rather peculiar一at some places the wind howled, in other places the snow fell heavily, and in yet other places fire burned.
No matter the heavy snowfall, the raging fire or any other abnormal scenes, they appeared illusory.
Around the Ultimacy Sacred Mountain thousands of disciples from the Shenwu Academy were gathered. They were sitting cross-legged on the ground and perceiving the Ultimacy.
Su Mo went within thousands of meters of the mountain. He sized it up completely with his spiritual consciousness, investigating it closely.
After probing for a long time, he was disappointed because there were hundreds of kinds of Ultimacy in the Mountain, but there was no Devouring Ultimacy.
The Ultimacies there were quite ordinary, such as the Five-Elements Property Ultimacy, Yin-Yang Ultimacy, Wind Ultimacy, Thunder and Lighting Ultimacy, Furious Ultimacy, and so on.
Even the Immortality Ultimacy was absent. These types of Ultimacy were far less than those in the Fighting Spirits’ Plane of the Firmament World.
The Ultimacy’s power, however, was considerably strong for the martial artists to perceive. This was something the Fighting Spirits’ Plane could not compare to.
Su Mo heaved a sigh. How could he perceive without the Devouring Ultimacy?
Did he have to rely on himself to perceive? It would be too slow.
“Young man, you can perceive from your Martial Soul!” Flaming Ghost Sage reminded him at this moment.
“Can that be done?” Su Mo asked curiously.
Without any hesitation, Su Mosat cross-legged on the ground and communicated with his Devouring Martial Soul through his mind, activating it slightly.
Instantly, faint devouring power diffused out.
Su Mo’s mind carefully comprehended the devouring power一its essence and profoundness. He began making sense of it.
The devouring power, though not an Ultimacy, embraced boulevards and principles on devouring. To perceive it would yield double results with half the effort than to perceive the Ultimacy’s power.
Su Mo lit up. It was true that an old man was a treasure of a family!
Flaming Ghost Sage was really of great help to him.
It occurred to Su Mo that he had refused Grand Master Huoyuan. How silly he had been!
If he had not refused, he could have asked Grand Master Huoyuan for advice on how to cultivate martial arts at any time despite the requirement to learn craftsmanship.
Fortunately, he met Flaming Ghost Sage.
Soon, Su Mo removed all distractions and made efforts to perceive the Devouring Ultimacy.
Engrossed in it, he forgot the time.
Time flew by, and soon, a month had passed.
In that period, two more disciples had come to Ultimacy Sacred Mountain.
Both of them were about 20 years old. One was in black and the other was in luxurious clothes.
The young man dressed in black was not tall and had thin cheeks and a grave face. His eyes were as cold and sharp as saber points.
The young man in luxurious clothes was none other than the man who had been extorted by Su Mo in the Demonic Cloud Sea.
“Brother Leng, I found out that this guy is named Su Mo. It was he who robbed me in the Demonic Cloud Sea. Please avenge me!”
The young man in luxurious clothes glared at Su Mo, who was not far away, as he whispered to the other man, his words full of resentment.
“An ant in the Emperor-to-be Realm dared to rob. He is courting death!” The young man in black gleamed with killing desire, ready to step forward.
“Brother Leng, just a moment please!” The young man in luxurious clothes suddenly stopped him.
“What’s wrong?” The young man in black was confused.
“This guy is powerful. More importantly, he has a strong backing!” The young man in luxurious clothes said in a low voice.
“What backing?” The other man frowned. He was not worried about Su Mo’s strength. How formidable could a cultivation in the Emperor-to-be Realm be?
However, he had to take backing into consideration. If he offended some big names they could not afford to offend, they would find themselves in serious trouble.
“It is said that he has something to do with Grand Master Huoyuan. The Master wanted to take him as a disciple, but he refused!” The young man in luxurious clothes said gravely.
“Grand Master Huoyuan?” The man in black was stunned.
He thought to himself that if this guy really had links with Grand Master Huoyuan, it would be impossible to kill the guy directly.
After some deliberation, the man had an idea and walked up to Su Mo.
The young man in luxurious clothes immediately followed him.
