Chapter 1281: How Could This Be?
Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
Su Mo made the first move, Ghost Qi circulated in his palms and shot outward the moment he extended his hands.
In an instant, two enormous Palm Prints headed towards Wu Lie and Wu
They were both completely black and instantly wrapped around his foes. Like an enraged sea, the Ghost Qi surged out violently, threatening those in its path.
Since his opponents were so near each other, the two Palm Prints were like two black millstones that instantly appeared before Wu Lie and Wu Yu’er.
Such an expert attack was definitely in a different class. Once Su Mo made his move, everyone was shocked.
For one, they were surprised by Su Mo’s power, as the Palm Prints were far stronger than what a normal Level 3 Martial Emperor artist could achieve. It could even be said to be greater than the strength of a Level 4 Martial Emperor artist.
Second, they were surprised because it appeared that Wu Chen had actually cultivated a Ghost Skill. The Sorcerer Tribe did not restrict what its members could learn, however, few people actually trained those vicious Ghost Skills.
“How can this be?” Wu Lie and Wu Yu’er were the most surprised. These two knew Wu Chen’s capabilities well. Compared to when they fought a month ago, this Wu Chen was very clearly a different person.
Not only did his aura change vastly, the skills he was using were also completely different. What was going on?
However, with Su Mo’s attack right in front of their eyes, the two didn’t have any more time to think, and they immediately defended themselves.
Wu Lie’s fist glowed brightly as though it was a scorching hammer, and he smashed it against the oncoming Palm Print.
Raising both her hands, Wu Yu’er’s sword light shone brilliantly and morphed into ten long sword illusions that flew towards the Palm Print.
Boom! Boom! Rumble!
In an instant, the three attacks met each other and a resulted in a deafening explosion. The Palm Print, Fist Hammer, and Sword Illusions burst into terrifying air streams that rained down and covered the entire fighting stage.
As the air streams swept through the arrays on the fighting stage, they were instantly sucked in by stadium vents that prevented them from affecting those outside the stage.
Wu Lie and Wu Yu’er swayed their bodies and immediately retreated backwards.
“How is this possible?” Their faces were full of astonishment. Wu Chen’s power was immensely strong, he was even comparable to the both of them!
What is going on?
How could he have changed so much in the span of a month?
Did he obtain some super strong Ghost Skill?
His strength has increased exponentially!
The two were completely shocked. Of course they were merely surprised, and not scared, at Wu Chen’s improvement. After all, even if Wu Chen was a Level 4 Martial Emperor artist, he would still not be able to defeat the both of them together.
“Both of you are not too bad! But you are nothing more!”
Su Mo’s spoke viciously. After the first trial move, he began his next attack. A light shone from his hand as a long, shiny sword emerged.
This long sword belonged to Liao Yun Chen. Yet no one here would recognize it so he could use it freely.
“Cut!” yelled Su Mo, and the sword within his hands exploded with light. Numerous black coloured and dense Sword Qi shot out and covered the sky.
Su Mo did not bother to prolong this fight and prepared to kill the two as fast as lightning.
For this attack, he stealthily mobilized the White Long Sword Fighting Soul within him, as well as ten other Long Sword Martial Souls, thus causing the sword’s power to increase exponentially.
He obtained the White Long Sword Fighting Soul by devouring Guo Chen Qing’s fighting soul. Its power was not weak at all, it was almost as strong as the other ten martial souls combined.
Swoosh swoosh swoosh!!
The extensive black coloured Sword Qi was wrapped with Ghost Qi. Its might was vicious and dense, its sword power vast and broad; in a second, it completely surrounded Wu Lie and Wu Yu’er.
“This isn’t possible!” Wu Lie bellowed. His voice carried his heart as the extensive Sword Qi caused his entire body to shiver.
He was scared!
He had no idea that Wu Chen’s power would be this strong.
Although he felt discontented and suspicious, it was too late to ponder it further.
The space on the fighting ground was limited and there was nowhere to run. With a thought, Wu Lie released his Fighting Soul and a tall shadow rose behind him.
His Fighting Soul was a flaming stone, and stood over three meters tall. Its entire body was red and it burned brilliantly.
This fire stone was called Fierce Blaze Stone!
It was the Fierce Blaze Stone Fighting Soul!
“Flaming Red Palm!” Wu Lie roared as he thrusted his palms forwards. His fists resembled a large fireball, and with a majestic sweeping force, it flew madly against the numerous Sword Qi.
On the other side, Wu Yu’er’s expression also changed drastically. Her power was weaker than Wu Lie’s and the pressure she faced was insurmountable.
“How can this be?” Wu Yu’er was as pale as a sheet, and she trembled in fear. Wu Chen’s power made her terrified.
Could it be that…?
In a second, a surprising thought formed in her mind.
Wu Chen had supposedly been killed by Wu Lie a month ago. Even if he had managed to survive, he would still need one or two months to recuperate!
However, within a single month’s time, not only were his injuries healed, but his power had also increased immeasurably.
Increasing his power was surprising, but his entire personality and his aura had also changed. Even his cultivation skills had changed.
What did this mean?
Realization dawned on Wu Yu’er. It was highly possible that the Wu Chen in front of them was not the true Wu Chen!
This thought caused Wu Yu’er to turn pale. However, the extensive Sword Qi attack was bearing down on her, and she had to defend herself.
In the midst of the light and fire, Wu Yu’er did not hold back. With a glimmer of sword light in her hand, a tall shadow similarly rose behind her as she released her Fighting Soul.
Wu Yu’er’s Fighting Soul was a two foot long graceful sword. The moment her Fighting Soul was released, it entered her hand.
With a swish of her long sword, a stream of Sword Qi that could cut through everything in its path streaked towards Su Mo’s Sword Qi still in the air.
Wu Lie and Wu Yu’er were using the best of their abilities to defend themselves against Su Mo’s attack.
It can be said that the couple’s powers were not bad. While they could not be considered geniuses, they would still be able to exchange a few blows against a Level 5 Martial Emperor artist if they worked together.
However, they soon realized that against this new Wu Chen, they would still be unable to perform to their greatest abilities.
At the instant the two attacked, Su Mo stealthily mobilized his Devouring Fighting Soul. A strong surge of devouring power instantly surrounded the two.
Because there were arrays on the fighting ground that sucked in excess Qi, Su Mo was not afraid of using the Devouring Fighting Soul, as long as it wasn’t too obvious. Wu Tian Yu and the other spectators would not even realize it.
Of course, those like Wu Tian Yu who were at the Firmament World might not even be able to recognise the Devouring Fighting Soul.
Those people had only felt the power of the fighting soul and did not actually see what the Devouring Fighting Soul looked like.
The shapeless devouring power surrounded the two and they instantly felt trapped. Their bodies, Qi flow, Dark Force, and Fighting Souls were all affected by the might of the devouring power.
In a second, the power of their two attacks decreased.
Sensing this drop in power, they instantly yelled out in fear.
However, they could not even react. In the next second, the extensive Sword Qi of Su Mo smashed down upon the two, shattering the stream-like Sword Qi and the Flaming Red Palm and creating a massive explosion that spread out in all directions.
The dense, black coloured Sword Qi quickly smothered both Wu Lie and Wu Yu’er’s bodies.
