Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
Upon hearing Su Mo’s words, rage gripped You Tianhan. He was also a genius and a top genius at that, but Su Mo was completely humiliating him with his words.
If he admitted his defeat just like that, he would never be able to show his face again in the Shenwu Academy and at the Taishi Family faction.
“Su Mo, if you want a challenge, a challenge it is then!” You Tianhan yelled out loud. Even if he was going to lose, he would have to fight it out.
With that, the Dark Force within You Tianhan soared out and a large war sword appeared in his hand. The war sword shone brilliantly and the radiance around it was dark and dense.
The reason why he dared to fight with Su Mo was because he knew that Su Mo would probably not kill him outright. Although Su Mo hated their Taishi Family members, he had killed so many of them at the Fighting World and would probably have sought enough of his revenge.
Su Mo didn’t even know about his secret agreement with Wu Ren Wang.
A mirage rose up behind You Tianhan as two large Longsword Fighting Souls appeared together with dense Sword Qi that filled the air.
Among these two Fighting Souls, one was a golden longsword while the other was a silver longsword. With the two swords complementing each other, their strength increased exponentially.
“Take one of my blows! I hope you won’t die immediately!” Su Mo coldly said before he stepped out once, instantly travelling a few hundred metres before he attacked.
He was only going to attack once. If You Tianhan could block this without dying, Su Mo would not kill him. however, if You Tianhan didn’t manage to resist the attack, then he would die!
With a wave of his arm, Su Mo sliced down once and a vast, massively strong three-coloured Sword Qi covered the sky as it rushed towards You Tianhan.
Although this blow wasn’t Su Mo’s maximum power, it was still very strong. The Sword Force felt like a holy sword from the nine heavens, shaking the earth violently.
Since Su Mo had taken a step forward, thus closing the distance between him and You Tianhan, this attack came out almost in the blink of an eye.
As the mighty sword force rushed forward towards You Tianhan, his eyes bulged wide open. Before it even hit him, its dazzling radiance and the deadly sword force caused his entire body to shiver so much in fear, it was like it had been frozen.
You Tianhan knew that he had to block this attack, otherwise he would die a miserable death.
Without hesitation, You Tianhan activated all the Dark Force within his body. The war sword in his hands shone brilliantly as he pushed the Dark Force and his Fighting Soul powers to their maximum.
“Break!” You Tianhan hissed out as the war sword cut down the skies in the shape of a half moon, heavily cutting down on the Sword Qi.
A ground-shaking blast exploded on the green platform as the Sword Qi shattered apart into a million streaks that rained down all over the surroundings.
You Tianhan’s body flew like a lightning bolt outwards, the speed of which was unthinkable.
Another boom sounded as You Tianhan flew a full 10km outwards, heavily hitting the massive array around the Holy Gate before he stopped.
This massive array was created there from the start and it separated the True Sage Territory from the area outside. One could only enter through the Holy Gate.
You Tianhan was thrown like a dead fish at a wall, barely breathing as fresh blood gushed out of him. Then, his body slid lifelessly down the array, leaving a trail of blood behind him.
You Tianhan did not die but his body had sustained heavy injuries. Both his leg were almost completely shattered apart and his whole body was ruined.
In the next moment, You Tianhan disappeared as he was transported out of the True Sage Territory.
The onlookers were shocked. Su Mo was merciless indeed. With one heavy strike of his sword, he virtually killed You Tianhan. It seemed like the hatred between them ran deep.
After Su Mo had struck his sword, he didn’t bother looking at You Tianhan before casually stepping off the green platform.
Su Mo sighed inwardly. It seemed like he had to challenge another round before he could pass the third round.
He had already challenged twice and accepted a challenge but he did not seem to be able to pass the round yet.
Then, Su Mo continued to wait while the challenges on the green platform resumed.
Round after round continued but no one dared to challenge Su Mo. Even geniuses like Jiang Shenye and Fei Zhangyun did not choose to take him on.
After all, everyone was all eager to obtain the True Sage Qi this time and their goal wasn’t to distinguish who was better than the other.
Jian Shenye and those ranked high on the True Sage Board such as Ju Mo and Fei Zhangyun were all very strong. There seemed to be no one who could be a match for them.
Su Mo couldn’t even comprehend fully the true extent of their strengths.
Time continued to tick by as challenges continued one after another. Without any time for the participants to take a breather, the second round ended quickly.
After two rounds of challenges, 120 people were left while the rest had been eliminated.
The third round was about to begin.
At this third round, the competition and intensity was much higher. This is because both parties in the challenge were quite evenly matched.
Aside from a handful of geniuses, almost every challenge required half an hour, and sometimes it lasted even longer.
Not long later, it was Su Mo’s turn again. He randomly picked a genius and defeated him in two blows.
At this point, he had challenged three times and had won all of them. This meant that he had successfully passed the last round.
However, nothing out of the ordinary seemed to have happened after his third victory. And like the rest of the challengers who had won their third match, it seemed like they had to wait until all the battles of the third round were over before they could obtain the True Sage Qi.
Battles continued and the number of people remaining quickly diminished. After another 10 hours, there were only 50 people left.
At that moment, there was 4 people remaining who had yet to complete their third challenge. The rest had successfully passed their three challenges.
These 4 people could challenge themselves and use 2 rounds to finish the third round of challenges and they could also challenge the other candidates using 4 rounds to finish the entire event.
Hence, it could be said that the challengers who had passed their three rounds of challenges did not really pass the third round of the True Sage Territory’s tests yet as they could still be challenged by the remaining 4 people.
Among the four left, there was a very strong candidate left – Ju Mo.
Ju Mo’s name lit up on the True Sage Stele and a familiar soft green light shot out.
Ju Mo took a step out and his tall, burly body landed on the green platform, causing a thunderous sound to erupt.
The remaining three people who had yet to challenge their third round immediately started quivering in fear. They were all afraid of being chosen by Ju Mo.
If they were chosen, they would all definitely lose.
They had gone through so much to finally reach this point. If they eventually lost to Ju Mo here, then they would be really unlucky.
Ju Mo stood tall on the green platform and his bright eyes quickly scanned the True Sage Stele. As he opened his mouth, a cheeky grin spread across his face.
He looked at Su Mo, and then at Jiang Shenye. Bursting out into a hysterical laughter, he rejoiced, “Ha ha! Su Mo, Jiang Shenye, the both of you are equally strong, who should I challenge?”
Ju Mo’s eyes shone with malice. He wanted to challenge Su Mo and also Jiang Shenye, but he couldn’t make up his mind about who.
Everyone’s heart jumped upon hearing Ju Mo’s words.
This was the last round and Ju Mo wouldn’t challenge those weaker than him but actually held the intention of targeting Su Mo and Jiang Shenye?
What was he trying to do?
