“Brother Nie, we are being followed!” Han Ying said with a somber expression.
Nie Qian was startled. He asked hastily, “Who are they? How strong are they?”
Han Ying tilted her head and activated her Fighting Soul, beginning to listen for the two stalkers.
Her Fighting Soul was gifted with superb hearing. She could figure out their cultivations simply by listening to the strengths of their aura turbulence.
”The two are both at the Peak of Lvl 4 Martial Emperor Realm!”
Han Ying said grimly. Her heart sank.
Her cultivation was only at the Peak of Lvl 1 Martial Emperor Realm. She would be killed instantly in a face-off with a martial artist at the Peak of Lvl 4 Martial Emperor Realm.
Nie Qian did not look too good either. Although he was in Lvl 2 Martial Emperor Realm, he still did not stand a chance against them.
”Brother Su, what shall we do?” the two asked Su Mo simultaneously.
Su Mo was the strongest among the three. He naturally became the mainstay of the team.
Su Mo expression darkened as he heard what she said. He began to think quickly.
Two martial artists in the Peak of Lvl 4 Martial Emperor Realm?
Su Mo felt slightly relieved. As long as their cultivations had not exceeded Lvl 5 Martial Emperor Realm, they would find it hard to kill him.
Su Mo had managed to kill Leng Jiang who was in Lvl 3 Martial Emperor Realm when he was still an Emperor-to-be. Now that he had reached the Martial Emperor Realm, he would not be weaker than these stalkers.
Moreover, his devouring power had increased tremendously after his Martial Soul’s evolution into a Fighting Soul. Even he himself did not know how strong he really was.
After all, he had never activated his Fighting Soul to the maximum after reaching the Martial Emperor Realm.
This time, he could try it out.
”You two leave first. I’ll stay and take care of them!” Su Mo said.
”No way!” Nie Qian and Han Ying both rejected Su Mo’s proposal.
”Brother Su, although you have reached the Martial Emperor Realm, that doesn’t mean you’d be able to fight off an enemy in Lvl 2, let alone two!” said Nie Qian.
”Yes! They seem very prepared. Let’s just find a way to escape!” Han Ying said.
”Do you two have any good ideas?” Su Mo asked. If there was a way out , he naturally did not want to stay.
”Err… !” the two stuttered. They did not have any good ideas.
”Wait for me at Star Cloud City!” Su Mo said to them as he stopped.
Star Cloud City was the site of the Teleportation Formation.
”Brother Su!” Nie Qian and Han Ying said. They stopped alongside Su Mo. It was too dangerous for him to stay on his own.
”Go now! Don’t worry about me. I have a trump card and can protect myself!” Su Mo urged.
There was nothing that they could do. They could only comply after seeing Su Mo’s confidence.
”Brother Su, we’ll be waiting for you! You have to return safely!”
The two left quickly. They knew that they could not help with their presence and might even be a burden.
Su Mo was relieved, seeing Nie Qian and Han Ying leave. He then turned to face the way they came.
He stood in the clouds and waited for the two stalkers with the long sword in his hand.
After a few heartbeats, two flashes of light rushed toward him with lightning speed.
The flashes of light slashed through the air and stopped within 50,000 meters in front of Su Mo, turning into two young men.
They looked strong in their black outfits. One had a dark and rough face, while the other looked handsome but had an emotionless expression.
The two took a good look at Su Mo. The rough-looking man laughed. “Su Mo, you know you can’t escape, so are you waiting for us here to die?”
Su Mo also sized the two up. The light in his eyes flickered. They must be from the Academy since they knew him.
In the Academy, he had only offended the Chixia Caves and the Taishi Family.
It was unlikely for the Chxia Caves to send men after him. After all, Leng Jiang was not important in the sect. He was the one who started the fight anyway.
It was definitely the Taishi Family since he had ignored Taishi Xuan and You Tianhan’s coercion. He had probably angered them.
”You look like men from the Taishi Family!” Su Mo said coldly.
”That’s right! I, Zhao Cheng, have come for your life!” The rough-looking man said with a deadly stare. He did not hide anything from him, since Su Mo would soon be dead!
The other stony-faced man did not say anything. He looked around and noticed Su Mo was alone. Nie Qian and Han Ying had already escaped.
However, he did not care. Their main objective was to kill Su Mo.
It would not be too late to take care of Nie Qian and Han Ying after he had slain Su Mo.
”I have just ran out of cultivating resources. Your cultivations would be perfect fodder!” Su Mo laughed direly.
If he could devour them, he might be able to break through his bottleneck with the help of their dense energy.
”What? You think you can kill us and take our storage rings?” The rough-looking man jeered at him.
”Not only your storage rings—everything you have!” Su Mo said callously.
”Why waste your time talking? Just kill him!”
The stony-faced young man was irritated. A sword radiance flashed in his hand as he pulled out a golden long sword.
A voice howled. The rough-looking man struck first and punched at Su Mo.
His gray fist condensed into a fist as big as a house and shattered the sky, destroying everything.
His fist radiance was incredibly powerful. Its terrifying Dark Force fluctuation shattered all the clouds within 5,000 kilometers. Its overwhelming aura split open the ground.
The speed of the fist was so fast, it surged 50 kilometers and reached Su Mo.
”You’re indeed strong!” Su Mo’s face turned grim. This man was much stronger than Leng Jiang. He was a completely different proposition.
Yet, he was not good enough to kill him.
A loud roar reverberated as a three-colored sword radiance surged into the sky, slashing at the giant fist.
Its sword power was also immensely powerful. It soared through the sky, sundering the heavens and earth.
A powerful explosion blasted the fist apart. The howling fist exploded like a tsunami wave.
Su Mo could not help but retreat, moving backward 3000 meters involuntarily.
He clearly lost ground in this round. His strength was much smaller than the rough-looking man.
However, he was just probing Su Mo with this strike.
Just when Su Mo had steadied himself and before he could repress the churning Blood Qi inside, an enormous golden sword Qi had charged toward him.
The stony-faced young man had attacked!
