Chapter 1577: Close at hand
Seeing this, Su Mo was instantly furious. He did not expect Leng Xie to be so shameless that he would actually make a move to attack him!
This was extremely unfavourable for him. After all, he had previously tried to grab the spiritual fruits while he was in the sky. He had just stretched out his Dark Force Palm and his heart had started to thump violently as if it were about to explode.
Over here, one was unable to attack the person in front of them!
Su Mo took out his golden Sage Sword and waited for the attack to come in front of him before taking action.
With a wave of the Sage Sword, the sharp Sword Radiance flashed extremely rapidly. The powerful Fist Ray was immediately slashed by the sword.
The Fist Ray burst and filled the whole sky, flying in all directions.
Su Mo did not retreat. Although his strength was greatly affected, Leng Xie, who was in front, was even more affected.
In this place, neither of them dared to use all their strength. After all, the burdens on their bodies were very huge.
Take Leng Xie, for example. His heart rate was fifteen times that of its normal rate. The intense heartbeat caused the Blood Qi of his entire body to surged and rush to his head.
Due to the huge burden on his body, he simply did not dare to use all his strength. Otherwise, it would be easy to cause a heart explosion.
“He he! The strength is not bad!” Seeing this, Leng Xie smiled slightly. Immediately after, he advanced forward while attacking Su Mo.
He did not expect Su Mo to be defeated. After all, he did not dare to exert too much strength. It was fine as long as he was able to obstruct Su Mo from advancing.
Boom boom boom!!
A streak of Fist Ray was like a meteor tearing through the sky, constantly coming towards Su Mo. Although the power was not very strong, it was not weak either.
“Crush crush crush!!”
Su Mo kept attacking, shattering the incoming attacks. However, as he was constantly being attacked, he was unable to move forward.
After a while, Leng Xie advanced another mile while Su Mo was still in the same place.
A smile appeared on Bei Jing’s face. Leng Xie’s doings had satisfied him.
“Damn!” Su Mo could not help but feel angry. If that was the case, he would simply be unable to catch up with Leng Xie and Bei Jing.
After thinking for a while, he defended while advancing sideways. As as he was not in the same direction as Leng Xie, the latter would not be able to attack him.
Not long after, Su Mo made a detour and proceeded in the other direction. In an instant, Leng Xie was unable to attack.
However, Leng Xie was all smiles. He had achieved his goal by launching his attacks.
Originally, the distance between him and Su Mo was only four miles. Now, it had increased to six miles.
He was 13 miles away from the central fruit tree while Su Mo was still 19 miles away.
Su Mo went to the other side and heaved a sigh of relief as Leng Xie no longer attacked.
However, seeing that both Leng Xie and Bei Jing were only 13 miles away from the central fruit tree, his face could not help but darken.
Su Mo’s face was gloomy. He really wanted to activate his Devouring Fighting Soul and devour the nine Blood Heart Fruits and not let Leng Xie obtain any.
However, he was not impulsive. First of all, he was unsure if the Devouring Fighting Soul would be of use here.
Secondly, if he were to devour all nine Blood Heart Fruits, he would definitely be attacked by everyone.
Therefore, this would be his last try. If he were still unable to catch up in the end and Leng Xie and Bei Jing would be the ones getting the top spot, he could only use his Devouring Fighting Soul then.
Taking in a deep breath, Su Mo reluctantly calmed himself down and proceeded forward.
His speed was a little slower than it was before, however, he was simply unable to quicken his pace. After walking for over ten steps, he had to stop to rest.
This was to let his heart adapt to the frenzied beating.
In the next period of time, Su Mo, Leng Xie and Bei Jing all continued forward.
Time continued to pass by. As he closed in on the central fruit tree, the three of their hearts beat faster and faster as the pressure increased and they walked slower.
After a while, Leng Xie and Bei Jing were only five miles away from the central fruit tree.
At that moment, Su Mo was seven miles away from the fruit tree, two miles further than Leng Xie and Bei Jing.
The more they moved forward, the slower their speed. As such, Su Mo was slightly faster than the two of them.
“It seems to be moving!” Su Mo looked at the nine Blood Heart Fruits in front of him and felt that these spiritual fruits seemed to be moving slightly as if they were beating like hearts.
However, the movement was very small. If one did not observe it carefully, it would be hard to notice.
“That’s strange!” Su Mo was amazed. Not only did this Blood Heart Fruit have the structure of a heart, it was actually able to beat like one.
What was the connection between this Blood Heart Fruit and the Ancient Demon’s Heart?
Looking down, Su Mo’s eyes fell on the Blood Heart Fruit Tree. These fruits were so extraordinary and it was definitely not so simple.
After Su Mo slowly calmed down, he continued to move forward. He could only inspect it once he got to it.
The Blood Force Physique had been activated to the maximum by Su Mo. His entire body was encapsulated with thick Dark Force. Even among the numerous Fighting Souls, he found a Fighting Soul that seemed solidified and boosted his body strength, slightly strengthening it.
Now that he was in the final stage, Leng Xie and Bei Jing had both played their last cards. The Dark Forces of their bodies were vast and their aura surged. They had used all kinds of methods to strengthen and protect their bodies.
Leng Xie’s appearance was extremely frightening. It was full of black scales and shone in the cold light.
From top to bottom, apart from his eyes, he was covered with black scales just like the a combat body of the demon clan.
This piqued the curiosity of many. What exactly was Leng Xie’s Fighting Soul?
Step by step, the three of them continued to advance and got closer to the central fruit tree.
After a long while, both Leng Xie and Bei Jing were only a mile away from the fruit tree.
However, this one mile seemed to be a huge gap and it was hard to close.
Boom boom boom!!
Leng Xie’s body continuously made dull noises, like a galloping horse and a river flowing.
His heartbeat had already reached 35 times that of its normal speed and it was extremely terrifying. It caused his chest to continuously bulge.
It was as if there was an invisible force that was pulling his heart.
The violent heartbeat caused his eyes to turn red and the black scales on his body oozed with blood.
The heart was the core of the body. The shocking shape of the heart almost caused him to collapse.
It was as if his body might explode in the next moment.
Bei Jing’s situation was similar to that of Leng Xie’s.
The speed that the two of them advanced at was like a turtle crawling. It was almost as if they took one step and had to stop for a while for the body to get used to before they could move on.
At that moment, Su Mo was only a mile away from the central ancient tree, about fifty to sixty feet behind Leng Xie and Bei Jing.
His body’s condition was slightly better than that of Leng Xie and Bei Jing.
After all, the Sky Bones Body, body of the Guardian Warrior of the other powerful body physique defences could not be crushed so easily.
Even though his heart rate had already reached thirty-two times that of the normal rate, his body would not be harmed.
However, the interior of his body was also chaotic. His heartbeat drove the blood of his entire body as if it were a headless chicken, randomly colliding in his body.
But, in order to not fall behind Leng Xie and Bei Jing, Su Mo gritted his teeth and moved forward.
The fruit tree was close at hand. He could not give up!
