Chapter 1500: Ten Percent
Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
Su Mo heaved a sigh of relief upon seeing the Empty Sky Sect disciples leave. He could finally hunt the demonic creatures in peace.
However, he had just devoured a large amount of attacks and Dark Force and he had to refine it quickly before they were wasted.
As he turned his head towards Lyu Gang, he said in a deep voice, “Lyu Gang, I have obtained the priority rights but I have to cultivate by myself for a while. Help me kill the demonic creatures!”
The blank-faced Lyu Gang suddenly regained his senses upon hearing Su Mo’s orders. In a confused tone, he asked, “You want me to help you hunt?”
“That’s right, I will give you ten percent of the Bone Spikes!” Su Mo nodded his head nonchalantly. Although he was previously not fond of Lyu Gang, his displeasure towards Lyu Gang had completely dissolved now.
The fact that Lyu Gang rushed forward to help him when the twenty Empty Sky Sect disciples attacked him together just now showed that Lyu Gang was an honourable man.
Of course, it wasn’t that Lyu Gang’s sole intention of helping Su Mo convinced Su Mo to give him ten percent of the Bone Spikes.
Su Mo just didn’t really want to hunt alone. Hunting the demonic creatures would require a large amount of time and Su Mo didn’t want to waste any time.
At that point, it would be better for him to cultivate and let Lyu Gang help him out.
“Ten percent of the Bone Spikes!” Lyu Gang was shocked by Su Mo’s offer. Although this sum seemed small, it was in fact a sizeable amount.
Under normal circumstances, Lyu Gang would have had to team up with the other True Path Sect disciples if he wanted to obtain the Bone Spikes of the demonic creatures.
Lyu Gang could only stand a chance to hunt the demonic creatures when there were around ten people gathered together. Either that, or if there was a very strong martial artist in the group.
Hence, he wouldn’t typically be able to earn even ten percent of the Bone Spikes.
For instance, the Empty Sky Sect men were in a group that comprised over twenty members. Eventually, the portion that each man received would be less than half of ten percent.
Therefore, for Su Mo to willingly offer ten percent of the Bone Spikes was already considered very generous for Lyu Gang.
“Mm, it is okay if you aren’t willing!” Su Mo nodded his head, he didn’t want to force it upon Lyu Gang.
“I am willing! Of course I am willing to accept this offer!”
Lyu Gang heart leaped with joy as he hurriedly replied, “You can just go and cultivate! Leave the hunting of the demonic creatures to me!”
“Okay!” Su Mo lightly smiled before flying down to a corner not far away. There, he sat down cross legged and closed his eyes.
The onlookers who saw this were surprised. Su Mo really was generous to offer Lyu Gang ten percent of the Bone Spikes.
No one dared to confront Su Mo and challenge him for the priority rights to hunt the demonic creatures. If even Wu Ren and the twenty Empty Sky Sect members had been defeated by Su Mo, no one could possibly go against him.
The silver-robed young man and the other True Path Sect disciples wore hardened looks as they deeply regretted their actions.
Lyu Gang had only showed his willingness to offer Su Mo help previously during the fifth and didn’t even have to lift a finger before he was offered such a good deal by Su Mo.
On the other hand, they had missed their opportunity.
Yet, it was too late for them to regret.
Demonic creatures emerged from the Demon Domain not long later. Three demonic creatures who were rather strong, with the strength of a typical Rank 9 Martial Emperor, ran out from the Demon Domain.
Lyu Gang was considered a genius and had a strength that was approximately that of a Martial Honorable. He managed to kill the three demonic creatures in under five attacks.
At that point, Su Mo was already seated in one corner, quietly refining his Dark Force.
The Dark Force in his body circulated and surged like a large river. it was the Dark Force that he had devoured recently.
Su Mo refined the Dark Force as best as he could and tried to merge it with his own Dark Force before storing it in the Divine Elixirs.
Time passed by slowly and Su Mo was completely absorbed in his own cultivation. He did not bother himself about Lyu Gang’s situation fighting the demonic creatures.
A short while later, he had completely refined all of the Dark Force and his cultivation had reached the peak of the Rank 9 Martial Emperor Realm. His strength had also increased significantly.
Su Mo opened his eyes slightly and saw Lyu Gang battling against two demonic creatures before him. Then, he shut his eyes closed again and continued to refine his Dark Force and stabilise his cultivation.
A few hours later, a sudden scream shot through the air. Su Mo opened his eyes widely and saw Lyu Gang being forced back.
A large portion of flesh had been sliced off Lyu Gang’s shoulder and fresh blood poured from his wound.
In front of Lyu Gang was a five foot tall demonic creature that had a human-like figure. It was roaring loudly towards the sky and it had a terrifying aura.
This demonic creature was very strong and it had a strength close to a typical Rank 2 Martial Honorable. Hence, Lyu Gang could not deal with it.
Upon seeing this scene, Su Mo gave a mental thought and the Ten Direction Natal Spiritual Sword Snake shot forward and directly sliced apart the demonic creature into ten pieces.
Lyu Gang looked at Su Mo as he expressed his thanks.
Su Mo slightly nodded his head before he shut his eyes again and continued refining his Dark Force and stabilising his cultivation.
Lyu Gang proceeded to retrieve the Bone Spikes of the demonic creature. Then, he continued waiting for other demonic creatures to appear before he killed them.
In the next few moments, Su Mo remained absorbed in his cultivation. Occasionally, demonic creatures that Lyu Gang could not overpower would appear and Su Mo would kill them himself.
Thankfully, the demonic creatures in the Demon Domain wasn’t exceptionally strong. A few stronger ones would sometimes appear and Su Mo would have to exert his all to kill them.
Time flew by quickly and, in the blink of an eye, five days had passed.
In these five days, Lyu Gang had killed almost five hundred demonic creatures and had obtained a large amount of Bone Spikes.
Su Mo would occasionally have to fight against the stronger demonic creatures by himself but he spent most of the time cultivating.
At that point, many other people of the superpowers were starting to get anxious. Five days was a long time and Su Mo and Lyu Gang did not show any signs of stopping.
Yet, even though they were anxious, no one dared to confront them. Su Mo, seated not far away from the Demon Domain, was like a landmine waiting to explode.
Just like that, another three days passed by and many people were getting impatient.
Suddenly, a handsome young man who wore a purple robe and carried a large ancient sword on his back slowly flew towards Su Mo.
“Su Mo, you two have already hunted for eight days at the Demon Domain. Shouldn’t you stop soon?” The young man in the purple robe asked in a deep voice.
Hearing his words, Su Mo slowly opened his eyes and scanned the young man in front of him. Then, Su Mo shook his head and said, “It is still early, let’s wait for a few more days.”
Su Mo was not willing to stop now. With Lyu Gang helping him to hunt the demonic creatures, Su Mo could cultivate peacefully. After eight days of refining, his cultivation had almost reached his target level.
A few more days and he could try breaking through to become Martial Honorable.
Therefore, Su Mo would definitely not stop hunting before he finished cultivating and stabilising his Dark Force.
“How many more days do you need?” The young man in the purpled robe frowned and wore a dark look on his face. He had already waited for a very long time.
He was a Imperial Sword Faction disciple and when the Empty Sky Sect disciples took control of the Demon Domain, he had waited for five days. With Su Mo in control of the Demon Domain now, he had waited another eight days. All in all, he had waited for close to half a month already.
“Defeat me and you can take the Demon Domain for yourself!” Su Mo nonchalantly dared the young man.
“You…!” The young man in the purple robe was instantly furious. If he had had the confidence to defeat Su Mo, why would he have waited until now?
Taking a deep breath, the young man suppressed the rage in his heart. Since his strength was inferior to Su Mo’s, he could only continue waiting.
At the same time, he silently thought to himself. If Su Mo wouldn’t stop in another three days, he might really have to battle Su Mo.
Shoosh! Shoosh! Shoosh!
Right at that moment, ear-piercing sounds shot through the sky as three streaks of light flashed in the air.
The young man in the purple robe turned around and instantly burst into laughter. He saw that the three streaks of light were from Wu Ren, who had returned with two experts.
