Chapter 1304: You Aren’t Worthy!
Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
Su Mo was bound to the Grand Priest as they shot through a pitch black space. He could only feel a terrifying force speed past him.
The Grand Priest’s speed seemed to reach the maximum of what was humanly possible. It was as though he had exceeded the limits of space and time; he seemed to be teleporting. With every blink, his body covered an extensive distance.
Within a mere span of five breaths, the Grand Priest stopped. Su Mo turned to look at his surroundings and found that he was in a cold and dark starry sky. Numerous constellations twinkled like faint lights around him. He wasn’t even sure where Heavenly Underworld Star was anymore!
“The battle will take place here!” said the Grand Priest lightly.
Su Mo and Wu Ren Wang nodded their heads and glared at each other, daggers shooting from their eyes.
Swoosh swoosh swoosh swoosh!!
Right at that moment, a few figures blinked into existence. The four priests and a core elder had arrived at where they were. These core elders were high levelled Honourable Martial Artists. Although their cultivation was high, they could not match with the Grand Priest’s speed. They had to rely on the aura of the four priests to arrive at this place.
“Wu Ren Wang, for a fair match, I will suppress your cultivation level to the Level 3 Martial Emperor Realm from your current Level 9 Martial Emperor,” the Grand Priest informed Wu Ren Wang.
“Mmph! That is no trouble, Grand Priest!” Wu Ren Wang nodded his head. Of course he could not disagree, otherwise, the Grand Priest would not permit their battle to take place. Despite this, he still had a huge advantage. After all, he was a Level 9 Martial Emperor; the martial skills, knowledge, and experience he possessed could not compare to a low level Martial Emperor like Wu Chen.
Then, the Grand Priest placed both his palms together. His fingers moved speedily and a strange seal the size of a fist appeared between his hands radiating a mystifying aura.
With a wave of his hand, the seal entered Wu Ren Wang’s body. Then, Wu Ren Wang’s aura grew weaker and he was reduced to the strength of a Level 3 Martial Emperor.
“Also, for a fair match, neither of you are allowed to use weapons that are in the Honorable Realm or higher!” added the Grand Priest.
A flash passed through Wu Ren Wang’s eyes and a murderous cold feeling filled his heart. He felt that the Grand Priest was biased towards Wu Chen! In the last Young Priest choosing ceremony, there wasn’t any restriction on weapons used for his final battle against Wu Ling. In fact, it was Wu Ling who relied on a Upper Imperial Honourable Realm weapon to marginally defeat him. And, now, the Grand Priest had added such a restriction on their weapons.
If this wasn’t being biased towards Wu Chen, what was it?
With Wu Chen’s identity and power, he could not have any strong weapons in possession. However, as a Level 9 Martial Emperor himself, Wu Ren Wang had more than ten strong Honourable weapons with him.
“Mmph!” Even though he was discontented, Wu Ren Wang still nodded his head.
With a twitch of his body and the sound of an explosion, Wu Ren Wang flew at lightning speed to a spot further away from the rest of the group.
“Wu Chen, come!” roared Wu Ren Wang, suspending himself in midair, his eyes sparkling with his fighting spirit. Su Mo did not hesitate before flying over to Wu Ren Wang, positioning himself a kilometer away from his opponent.
“I hope that your strength matches your talents!” A cold flash passed through Wu Ren Wang’s eyes as he stared intently at Su Mo. The aura around his body spiralled upwards and morphed into a menacing wind above him.
“I will not disappoint you!” replied Su Mo coldy as he hardened his face. This man was an enemy of his match, he could not underestimate him.
“Fight!” shouted Wu Ren Wang, then he did not speak any further and waved his hand to grab in the direction of Su Mo.
Boom boom boom!
In an instant, the space around him tore open and an enormous Dark Force palm flew at lightning speed through the air. This Dark Force palm was as big as a mountain. The moment it appeared, it quickly morphed into the shape of a dragon’s claw. The claw looked very alive. A dense cloud of purple aura covered it as it dazzled with cold beams of light.
Boom boom boom!!
The might of the dragon’s claw was terrifying and its speed was lightning fast. The path it took exploded continuously, as though the nine heavens were striking lightning down on the earth. It directly fell upon Su Mo.
“Break!” without any hesitation, Su Mo took out a sword and heavily struck the dragon claw before him. Ghost Qi radiated from it and the multitude of Sword Qi that poured forth showered the skies.
Within a split second, the Sword Qi struck the dragon claw, causing a deafening explosion to occur. The enormous dragon claw immediately broke apart and the aura that it carried quickly dissippated. The Sword Qi was also torn apart and it shattered out in four directions.
The strong force from the explosion instantly launched Su Mo back a few hundred meters.
“Hmph! Just like that!” Seeing this, Wu Ren Wang broke out into a smile. This attack was his test of Su Mo’s fighting strength. Now he was able to understand the extent of his opponent’s abilities. Su Mo’s face hardened further. Wu Ren Wang was strong, extraordinarily strong. He could feel it from the casual strike that Wu Ren Wang attacked with just now. If it wasn’t for his Devouring Fighting Soul, Su Mo probably would not dare to battle with Wu Ren Wang.
After all, although Wu Chen’s body had cultivated the Heaven Combining Ghost Skill, its strength was still a far cry from Su Mo’s real body.
“Wu Chen, I will show you what real talent is! And what outstanding fighting strength looks like!” Wu Ren Wang yelled out, his voice booming like a thunder strike and shaking the heavens and earth. His face was full of his confidence and his eyes dazzled brightly as he continued, “You are not worthy of fighting with me, much less to become the Young Priest!”
The moment he said those words, Wu Ren Wang struck again with his strong force.
“Green Dragon’s Mighty Fist!”
A large, purple coloured dragon shadow suddenly appeared behind Wu Ren Wang. With a loud roar, Wu Ren Wang bulked up and punched a mighty fist out towards Su Mo.
The magnificent and vast purple coloured fist force transformed into a long, great dragon. The skies shook as it roared out menacingly and its dragon’s force spread out broadly. With a shake of its tail, the great dragon travelled a kilometer and arrived right before Su Mo. Its large dragon claws tearing everything apart as it struck at Su Mo’s head.
“What? A Divine Dragon Fighting Soul?” Su Mo was stunned to see the great dragon before him and retreated backwards immediately.
However, a few moments later, he relaxed slightly. Wu Ren Wang’s Fighting Soul was not a Divine Dragon, but a Scale Dragon. Despite that, this attack was still very strong, much stronger than what any normal Level 3 Martial Emperor could achieve. This attack also had a large Ultimacy force, one that was a pure strength-based Ultimacy.
“Break!” At the same time as he sped across the space, Su Mo released his Heaven Combining Ghost Realm. Boundless Ghost Qi rolled out from him and morphed into a large Ghost sphere that imprisoned the great dragon within it.
In the next moment, jet black sword radiance shot upwards. A wave of Ghost force rolled forth and captured the great dragon’s claw.
The sword radiance and the dragon claw met each other and, with a rumble, an explosion spread out over a kilometer and instantly demolished the space.
The dragon claw was torn apart by the sword radiance and the force of it shot through the long sword right straight towards Su Mo, causing him to shiver roughly and forcing him backwards even farther.
Bang! Bang! Bang!!
Once the dragon’s claw was destroyed, a loud howl resounded in the air. But the great dragon did not slow down, instead it rushed forward again to use its other claw to strike violently at Su Mo.
