Chapter 1314: Ruthless
Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
Su Mo, Han Ying, and Nie Qian flew quickly and, before long, the small town appeared in their line of sight. From the distance, the town was not big at all. It was roughly the size of the town where the Firmament Palace was currently located. However, the population here far exceeded that of the Firmament Palace town.
The three of them stopped a few kilometers away from the small town. Su Mo used his willpower to survey his surroundings as well as the town before he nodded his head slightly. There were around seventy to eighty thousand Sorcerer Tribesmen living here and even fewer normal humans, no more than a hundred of them. The strongest person was just a Level 3 Martial Emperor young man.
“Brother Nie, Sister Han, the two of you can stay here. If you detect any strong martial artist approaching, notify me immediately!” Su Mo said to his two companions.
“Su Mo, rest assured, nothing that happens within 20 kilometers from where we are will escape my Eavesdropping Ear!” Han Ying assured him.
Su Mo nodded his head and, with a flash of his body, flew towards the small town. Immediately, he arrived at his destination and hovered in the skies above it.
“Devour!” with a light shout, Su Mo immediately released his Devouring Fighting Soul. A large devouring void suspended in mid air as it covered the skies. A powerful devouring power immediately rolled out and surrounded the entire town.
Boom boom boom!!
In an instant, explosions resounded continuously. Almost no one in the town had time to react before their bodies exploded and morphed into a mix of air streams that was then sucked towards the devouring void. Not only bodies, but numerous gardens, balconies, and entire palaces were plucked off the ground and flew towards the devouring void. This scene was shocking. Everything in the town was sucked towards the devouring void.
“Who are you?”
“Ah! What is going on?”
“What do you want?”
Fearful shrieks raised into the air one after another. There was a total of 200 Martial Emperors in the town who didn’t explode instantly. However, they weren’t able to control and stabilize their bodies and were flying quickly towards the void.
“Die!” shouted the strongest man in the town, the Level 3 Martial Emperor, as he swung a sword right at Su Mo. The man was right in front of the devouring void and on the verge of being absorbed.
The sharp Sabre Qi was not ordinary as it sliced through the air and came down upon Su Mo. However, although this Sabre Qi was strong, it could not stand against the devouring power. Before it could even meet Su Mo, it changed directions sharply and flew into the devouring void.
“Ah ah ah!!” Screams could be heard everywhere. As expected, everyone, including the Level 3 Martial Emperor warrior, was sucked into the void. The entire process barely lasted the span of one breath.
Not far away, Nie Qian and Han Ying were dumbfounded. They stared at the flat ground where the small town once stood, a sudden realization sweeping through their minds. Although they knew the abilities of Su Mo’s Devouring Fighting Soul, they had never imagined that its power was so frightening. It could wipe out an entire town and transform the land into a barren wasteland in just a heartbeat. Both of their bodies were drenched in cold sweat and their hearts seemed to shiver in fear as they witnessed the scene.
Su Mo stood in mid air and stopped the Devouring Fighting Soul. The boundless waves of devouring power instantly dissipated. Now wasn’t the time for him to break through to the next ream. Once he had gathered a sufficient amount of resources, he could calmly break through to the next realm sometime soon.
In the next moment, a whooshing sound could be heard.
Swoosh swoosh swoosh swoosh!!
A blur of bodies, long swords, sharp sabres, spears, and storage rings suddenly flew out from the devouring void and land on the ground below. In the blink of an eye, a small mountain of items had piled up below Su Mo. The bodies and artifacts were those of the Martial Emperors from a moment before. Su Mo had devoured their Fighting Souls, and unceremoniously spat out their remains.
The boundless amount of weapons, storage rings, and other treasures were all possessions of the former martial artists. Of course, many other lower class treasures had been instantly absorbed by Su Mo to raise his cultivation after they were devoured by the Devouring Fighting Soul. The items on the ground were those that Su Mo had purposely left untouched. After all, his goal was to gather resources. If he had devoured and absorbed everything, then it would have been a waste of his efforts.
Ever since his Devouring Martial Soul had transformed into a Fighting Soul, it had become very easy to utilize and control its devouring power. How he commanded it to devour, it would devour. How he desired it to cultivate, it would cultivate. It was truly fascinating.
With a wave of his hand, all of the bodies and treasures were placed into Su Mo’s storage rings. Then, he turned and left.
“Brother Nie and Sister Han, I am done!” Su Mo said as he flew towards them.
“Brother… Brother Su, are we perhaps too ruthless?” Han Ying’s face was slightly pale. She thought that Su Mo was referring to ordinary looting escapade when he mentioned the idea; she had not imagined such a murderous scenario.
At that moment, Han Ying no longer looked at Su Mo with pure eyes, she now carried a slight sense of fear. Nie Qian was not any better than Han Ying. His face was similarly white and he involuntarily swallowed.
“Ruthless?” Su Mo shook his head and wore a serious look as he said, “If you both knew how many billions of martial artists, innocent lives, in my home country were taken away by the Sorcerer Tribe people, then you wouldn’t call me ruthless!”
Upon hearing Su Mo’s words, both Nie Qian and Han Ying were shocked and they both wore incredulous looks on their faces. The Sorcerer Tribe had massacred billions of lives in Su Mo’s home? They, too, were so ruthless?
“Not only that, but my hometown no longer exists. It was wiped out completely by them!” Su Mo explained and sighed heavily.
Before he left the Firmament World, Su Mo had an ambition. He wanted the Firmament World to be free of the Sorcerer Tribe and to become an independent country. He had planned to return after he had trained hard enough and increased his abilities. But, now, that wasn’t possible.
At the Firmament Palace gate, there was no one there anymore, yet there were still puppet men living there. And, although they were mere puppet men, their knowledge was still similar to that of regular men. After being with them for so long, Su Mo had developed some feelings towards them. When Firmament World was destroyed, they probably hid in special areas, but he knew they still suffered.
“Brother Su, since they massacred your home country, then we won’t be merciful either!” Nie Qian saw Su Mo’s dark expression and comforted him in a serious tone.
“Brother Su, please restrain your grief!” Han Ying persuaded.
Su Mo sighed again, “This small act can be considered the beginning of my revenge on the Sorcerer Tribe. In the future, I will annihilate them!”
With that, he flipped both his palms and a few dozen storage rings appeared.
“You guys can take these storage rings. There are probably quite a lot of resources and treasures in them!” Su Mo handed the rings over to Nie Qian and Han Ying.
“What… Brother Su, we didn’t really do much. We shouldn’t accept these!”
“Brother Su, you are too generous!”
The two of them quickly retreated and were slightly embarrassed to accept the storage rings.
“Take these! We shouldn’t stay here for too long, lets go quickly!” Su Mo shoved the rings into the two of their hands and immediately took off. Nie Qian and Han Ying had no choice but to accept the rings, both of them moved by Su Mo’s generosity.
The two figured they would probably gain many more benefits from their powerful companion. Storing their rings, they followed closely behind Su Mo.
