“The few of you follow Wu Chen and investigate the reasons behind the disappearance of these small towns. Remember to protect Wu Chen!” the Grand Priest ordered Wu Ma and the rest of the geniuses.
“Grand Priest, rest assured. We will definitely protect Young Priest Wu Chen!” the group responded to the Grand Priest.
“Mmph!” After briefing them about the locations of the small towns, the Grand Priest waved his hand and said, “Alright, you may go!”
“Let’s go!” Wu Chen called upon the group and led them out of the meeting hall. Everyone followed swiftly behind and flew up into the skies.
“Young Priest Wu Chen, where shall we investigate?” in the midst of flying, Wu Ma asked Wu Chen. There were quite a number of towns that disappeared and he wasn’t sure where Wu Chen was headed.
“We will go the town that was the last to disappear,” Wu Chen replied in a deep voice. A cold flash passed through his eyes. Since these people had followed him, then they would not be returning to the city. However, Wu Ma and Wu You Lan were Level 6 Martial Emperors and top geniuses. His body might not be a match for them. Furthermore, the Young Priest badge was still on him, which meant he was still being monitored, and had to proceed carefully with this matter.
“Ah ah ah!” Far off in a distant Sorcerer Tribe town, bone chilling screams resounded through the air. The entire town floated upwards and was swiftly sucked mercilessly into a devouring void. Many Sorcerer Tribesmen died terribly, while all of the martial art experts and buildings were absorbed into the void. Su Mo hovered in mid air as he wore a cold expression on his face; he was activating the Devouring Fighting Soul to its peak power.
This town was much bigger than the ones he had devoured previously. There were close to 10 million people residing within it, as well as a few hundred Martial Emperors, four of whom were even Level 5 Martial Emperors.
“Run quickly to escape!”
“Ah! Save me!”
Screams, yells, and shrieks continued to sound as the entire town seemed to have fallen into the depths of hell. Martial artists who were below the Martial Emperor Realm died almost instantly and only the Martial Emperors could barely withstand the devouring power. Those whose cultivation levels were below that of Su Mo could only struggle valiantly for a while. The few dozen of Level 4 and 5 Martial Emperors could hold themselves back for a few breaths.
Su Mo’s Devouring Fighting Soul was an ultimate weapon. Those whose strengths were below him were powerless. Everything in the town was sucked unstoppably into the void.
“Everyone, attack him!” someone yelled angrily. Then, a few powerful attacks flew towards Su Mo. The few dozen Martial Emperors still alive had attacked him all at once and their combined strength was pretty strong. It was as if the enraged seas were battering him with waves, the force of the attacks spread out over several miles. However, under the influence of the devouring power, their attacks were greatly weakened and they could not reach their potential.
“Die!” Su Mo couldn’t be bothered to waste more time on these men. The Sword Radiance in his hand surged brilliantly and a barrage of Sword Qi flew forth to cover a vast area and attack the remaining survivors.
Boom boom boom!!!
Explosions sounded continuously and the Martial Emperors’ attacks were easily shattered by Su Mo’s Sword Qi. Then, the remaining Martial Emperors were flooded over by Su Mo’s Sword Qi.
“Ah ah ah!!” after a series of screams resounded, everything returned to a peaceful state. Everyone had died. Next, Su Mo immediately retrieved all the treasures he had devoured as well as the treasures from killing the Martial Emperors. Quickly, he finished his task and flew over to where Nie Qian and Han Ying waited for him.
“Brother Nie, Sister Han, let’s hide nearby!” Su Mo instructed the two of them.
“Hide nearby?” upon hearing his words, the two were surprised and asked curiously, “Brother Su, we destroyed this entire town, shouldn’t we leave as fast as we can? Staying here is too dangerous!”
“Yes! Once the Sorcerer Tribe people find out that this place has been destroyed, they will definitely come here to investigate.” Han Ying said.
“Don’t worry, my friends, this town is rather distant from any main civilization. No one will find out that quickly. Furthermore, our prey will arrive soon!” Su Mo replied, a sinister flash passing through his eyes.
“Prey? What prey?” Han Ying and Nie Qian were understandably confused.
“Geniuses of the Sorcerer Tribe!” Su Mo said in a deep tone. He explained how his avatar, Wu Chen, was bringing a group of geniuses over to investigate the situation, whereupon he would attack and devour them.
“Brother Su, do you have confidence that you can defeat them?” Nie Qian asked, his face completely stoic.
“I do, but we will have to prepare beforehand! Once we are done with these foes, we will leave Heavenly Underworld Star!” Su Mo replied calmly.
Then, he told his plan to the two of them. After a short discussion between the trio, they transformed the surroundings around the small town slightly and hid themselves nearby. The dug deep into the earth, like they had done before, and rested.
100 kilometers underground. Su Mo sat down cross-legged and prepared to break through to the Level 4 Martial Emperor Realm.
“Brother Nie, Sister Han, I will have to trouble you two to protect me!” Su Mo requested of the two.
“Brother Su, don’t worry and focus on cultivating!”
“Brother Su, nothing will be able to escape my Eavesdropping Ear!” Nie Qian and Han Ying were happily counting their rewards as they spoke. Su Mo shook his head silently. He had only given the two of them around ten thousand storage rings, yet they were so excited! Currently, the treasures he possessed were innumerable. If he had counted them, it would definitely be a monstrous number.
A few moments later, Su Mo retrieved a few dozen Martial Emperor ranked Divine Pills and cleared his mind to prepare cultivating. This time, he had to break through to the Level 4 Martial Emperor Realm. Otherwise, he might not have the confidence nor the skills to defeat Wu Ma and Wu You Lan. After all, the two of them were top geniuses and had special body constitutions. They were also both Level 6 Martial Emperors.
When he fought with Wu Ren Wang previously, Wu Ren Wang was still very strong, even though he had been suppressed to a Level 3 Martial Emperor. Wu Ma and Wu You Lan’s fighting strengths were definitely lower than that of Wu Ren Wang, but their cultivations would not been suppressed,so together they would probably appear a few times stronger than Wu Ren Wang.
Su Mo now possessed the terrifying Dream Realm Fighting Soul, but he did not dare to be completely certain that the Dream Realm Fighting Soul could defeat them. He wasn’t entirely sure of the capabilities of the Dream Realm Fighting Soul and what kind of martial artists it could handle.
Wu Ren Wang was unable to break the dream realm and Su Mo could feel that his willpower wasn’t that strong. It didn’t seem the standard for a Level 9 Martial Emperor, so Su Mo guessed that it was not only his cultivation that had been suppressed, but his willpower, too.
Therefore, for his safety this time, Su Mo had to raise his own cultivation level. Only then could he be sure that he could cleanly destroy Wu Ma and his gang. And after he completes this final battle, Su Mo and his companions will leave Heavenly Underworld Star.
