Chapter 1254: I’ve Finally Broken Through!
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!!
Just when Su Mo was about to reject Taishi Xuan again, whizzing noises were heard from afar. A dozen or so figures soared over to his tower.
There were a dozen men and women, each carrying a formidable air.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!!
These 12 people were extremely fast and arrived at their destination almost simultaneously. They glanced at one another, their expressions full of animosity.
“Su Mo, I am Jing Lei from the Chixia Caves. We can forgive you for killing Leng Jia if you join our Sect!”
A tall, burly young man stared intently at Su Mo. His voice was deep and resounding.
“Su Mo, join us, the Nine Heavens Holy Grounds. No one would dare to touch you!”
“Cloud Top Holy Gate is the strongest superpower. You certainly have to join us!”
“Su Mo, the Cangyun Sacred Sect is your best bet!”
Each spoke, one after another, inviting him into their particular Sects.
The color of Su Mo’s face turned purplish. All these people were from the 13 sects. They were here to recruit him–all 13 of them.
Taishi Xuan saw them and his face turned black. He had wanted to persuade Su Mo to join the Taishi Family, but did not expect any of the other Sects.
An idea flashed across his mind and he suddenly knew what to say.
“Friends, you are too late! Su Mo has already agreed to join us, the Taishi Family!” Tai Shixuan said, smiling at the others.
“What?” The others were stunned and stared perplexedly at Su Mo.
Su Mo was now frowning. When had he agreed to join the Taishi Family?
This Taishi Xuan was so good at bullshitting!
Su Mo was about to open his mouth and deny, when Taishi Xuan telepathized a voice over, creeping into his mind.
“Su Mo, Liao Yujian from the Taishi Family was killed by you, I believe? If you join us, we will not pursue the matter. Otherwise, you are setting yourself against us. Consider this carefully!”
Hearing Taishi Xuan’s voice, Su Mo narrowed his eyes slightly. He glared coldly at him.
Taishi Xuan’s face was now wreathed with smiles. He looked courteous and cultivated, yet his words were a cold coercion!
It looked like he already knew Su Mo had killed Liao Yunjian.
“I did not agree to join the Taishi Family!” Su Mo enunciated clearly, staring at Taishi Xuan.
He had no real affection for Taishi Xuan. The man had even dared to threaten him. He was really uppity!
His coercion made Su Mo feel even more disgusted.
Su Mo was not a man who feared coercion. Taishi Xuan had wanted to crush him–but his ploy would not succeed.
Taishi Xuan heard him and his countenance fell. An icy glimmer flitted across his eyes.
Su Mo had rejected him–in front of everyone! He had denied Taishi Xuan’s words. His revelation was a real slap on Taishi Xuan’s face!
A raging fire slowly blazed in Taishi Xuan’s heart.
“Hmmm, you are really an abled man, Taishi Xuan! Resorting to lying!”
The tall, burly Jing Lei snorted scornfully and said to Su Mo, “Join us, Su Mo! Join the Chixia Caves! I guarantee you will have no regrets!”
“What’s so great about the Chixia Caves? You’d better join the Ziwei Holy Grounds!” A young woman said.
“The Astrology Holy Gate is the most powerful Sect! Don’t miss this opportunity, Su Mo!”
“The Astrology Holy Gate, the most powerful Sect? Don’t make me laugh. Everyone must move when the Sun and Moon Sacred Sect arrives!”
There was a clamor of voices, each praising their own faction as the most powerful and extending their invitations over to Su Mo.
Su Mo looked on, frowning quietly. He did not want to join any faction at the moment.
Even if he would, that would come later.
“You don’t need to say anymore, friends!” Su Mo waved his hand and shouted loudly. Everyone immediately quietened down.
“Friends, all the 13 superpowers have their own good points. I can’t decide right now. I will have to think it over and decide!”
Su Mo’s eyes surveyed the crowd. He held a cupped fist in a hand and saluted them. “Please go back, friends! Sorry, I won’t send you off!”
With these words, he turned and returned to his tower, shutting his door with a loud thud.
Since he would not join any Sect, he did not want to humor them and play the hypocrite.
Everyone saw him leave and looked helpless. They were all trying to rope him in. This had instead made it impossible for Su Mo to come to a decison.
Since Su Mo had not taken a stand, all the superpowers still had a chance.
They soon returned, one after another. The matter was not at a close–they would try to draw him over secretly the next time.
“He doesn’t know what’s good for him!” An icy glitter gleamed in Taishi Xuan’s eyes. He sneered coldly and turned away like the rest.
Su Mo, who had returned to the tower, waited for everyone to leave before entering the jade bracelet again.
Within its space domain was a palace, supposedly built by Wu Sen.
Su Mo entered the palace and sat cross-legged. He started to train in seclusion.
If he did not break through into the Martial Emperor Realm, he would not come out of his seclusion!
Su Mo got rid of his inward distractions and his Spiritual Soul started communicating with his Martial Soul, quietly integrating them together.
The process was extremely slow and needed the proper steps. He could not rush it.
After some time, he had fortunately discovered a way to integrate them. It was only a matter of time before he could succeed and evolve his Martial Soul.
Time passed slowly.
After eight consecutive days, Su Mo’s cross-legged body suddenly began to quake slightly, as if it was preparing for a change.
The next moment…
He suddenly released his gigantic Devouring Martial Soul which floated upward.
Bam, bam, bam!
A series of loud boomed. The nine golden halos above the Devouring Martial Soul disintegrated suddenly and dissipated.
His massive Devouring Martial Soul expanded speedily in his sight and kept getting bigger and bigger. Soon, it broke through the palace ceiling, disintegrating its top into nothingness.
His Devouring Martial Soul broke through the palace ceiling and rose 5,000 meters into the air.
His Devouring Martial Soul continued to expand. Within the blink of an eye, it had expanded to 1,500 meters in both width and height. It became darker and more sinister.
His gigantic Devouring Martial Soul hovered in mid-air. It was like a massive vortex floating in the heavens, trying to engulf the realms.
Boom, boom, boom!
The vortex started whirling rapidly. An invisible power swirled out, enveloping the entire jade bracelet domain.
Within a 150-kilometer radius in the bracelet domain, almost all its Spiritual Qi had been sucked away.
Not only that, trees and rocks in the domain were all sucked into the swirling vortex.
Even this plot of extensive land with a 150-kilometer radius was quaking violently. Everything in it was sucked into the swirling vortex.
Three loud, horrified voices rose in the distance. After these voices rang out, the giant devouring vortex suddenly stopped swirling.
A calm resumed everywhere.
“I’ve finally broken through!” A nonchalant voice sounded from within the vortex. The vortex shrank and soon darted down into Su Mo’s body.
Su Mo opened his eyes slowly. They were shining with a fierce vigor.
His gaze turned to the outside of the palace. He found three scrawny figures standing there–Wu Xian and two other young men from the Sorcerer tribe.
Their faces were ashen pale as they shivered constantly. A profound terror could be seen in their eyes.
They were originally far away, but were attracted into the vortex and almost engulfed.
