Chapter 1580: Crossed The Basal Tolerance Level
Su Mo stopped moving forward while Leng Xie continued to move forward as the gap between the two of them widened.
After a while, Leng Xie was only 50 feet away from the Blood Heart Fruit Tree. Victory was within his reach.
At that moment, the outcome was very clear. Everyone reckoned that the nine Blood Heart Fruits would definitely belong to Leng Xie.
Bei Jing heaved a sigh of relief. He previously had given up on fighting and was afraid that Leng Xie would lose to Su Mo.
Now, it seemed that his fears were unfounded.
Without having to take action, he did not offend Leng Xie and did not have to bear the immense pressure. Just like that, he would be able to obtain two Blood Heart Fruits. This was truly a satisfactory outcome.
“Why bother!” Yun You You sighed. She felt that it was not worth it for Su Mo. Not only would he offend Leng Xie, he would not get even one Blood Heart Fruit. It was considered an utter failure.
“He’s shooting himself in the foot!” Yi Wei slightly shook her head. In her opinion, Su Mo was being too arrogant. His strength was not sufficient to compete with Leng Xie. In the end, he was left with nothing and he also offended Leng Xie
The other disciples of the other Super Forces felt the same way as Yi Wei. This time, Su Mo was going to pay a high price!
Not long after, Leng Xie was only 30 feet away from the Blood Fruit Tree.
To Leng Xie, a 30-feet distance between him and the nine Blood Heart Fruits meant that it was already within reach.
“Ha ha!” Leng Xie was overjoyed and could not help but laugh out loud. Immediately after, he paid no attention to the injuries on his body and once again tried his utmost to increase his speed. He could not wait to get the nine Blood Heart Fruits.
Just at that moment, suddenly, something unexpected happened.
The Blood Fruit Tree in front of him suddenly swayed and leaned to one side.
“Hmm?” Seeing this, Leng Xie was stumped and bewildered. Why was the Blood Heart Fruit Tree swaying all of a sudden?
He looked up and scanned his surroundings. At that moment, there was no wind in the basin. How could the Ancient Tree sway and lean to one side?
The situation of the Blood Heart Fruit Tree naturally gained the attention of others. Everyone was slightly confused. They did not understand why the Blood Heart Fruit would suddenly move.
There, only one person saw through what was happening. That person was none other than Lu Gang.
Lu Gang was in the outermost area. As he was not powerful enough, he had only walked for a little more than 30 miles and obtained a Red Ganoderma before retreating.
Looking at the direction in which the Blood Heart Fruit Tree leaned towards, Lu Gang’s eyes lit up. The Fruit Tree was leaning towards Su Mo.
Lu Gang was the one who knew Su Mo the best there. He had seen Su Mo battle several times and seen the abnormalities caused by Su Mo’s Devouring Power.
As such, he guessed that it was Su Mo making his move when he saw this.
“Sure enough, I’ve said it before! He will not do something he is not certain of!” Lu Gang thought to himself. He knew Su Mo relatively well and he previously did not believe that Su Mo would give up in advance.
While Leng Xie and everyone else was in shock, the Blood Heart Fruit Tree swayed even more violently and slanted even more. The nine Blood Heart Fruits on the tree, along with the branches and leaves, all swayed violently.
Soon, the Blood Heart Fruit Tree was completely tilted, as if it had fallen over. The nine Blood Heart Fruits and all the leaves were pulled in the same direction, as if there was a violent gust of wind blowing.
“What’s going on?” Leng Xie’s eyes widened. He did not know what was going on. This sudden situation confused him.
“What’s happening to the Blood Fruit Tree?”
“Why did it topple?”
“That’s strange, it’s bizarre!”
Everyone burst into chatter. All of them were bewildered, this situation was too confusing.
There, everyone could not even reach the fruit tree with their spiritual senses. It was impossible to investigate the root of the problem.
Just when everyone was bewildered, a strange thing happened again.
Swoop! Swoop! Swoop!!
The nine Blood Heart Fruits on the fruit tree and all the leaves were suddenly separated from the Blood Heart Fruit Tree and flew out in the same direction.
“What?” Leng Xie was shocked beyond words upon seeing this. If all these Blood Heart Fruits were to fly away, all his efforts would go down the drain!
However, the Blood Heart Fruits were flying in a different direction from him. He was unable to intercept them and could only watch them fly away blankly.
When everyone saw this, they were in shock as they stared blankly at the strange scenario.
However, in the next instant, an alarming scene happened.
The nine Blood Heart Fruits and all the leaves flew across the sky and in front of Su Mo.
Afterwards, Su Mo, who had been keeping his eyes shut tightly, opened his eyes and waved his hands lightly. All the Blood Heart Fruits and leaves disappeared.
Everyone immediately understood what was going on. The Blood Heart Fruits had been taken away by Su Mo in a special way.
Everyone was astounded, their mouths agape. How did Su Mo do it? Without even being close to the Blood Heart Fruit Tree, he managed to make the Blood Heart Fruits automatically fly towards him.
No wonder Su Mo had stopped moving forward. It turned out that he had such a mysterious method to do so. What a reversal. He had managed to get all the Blood Heart Fruits in one swoop.
“Su Mo, you are courting your own death!” a voice boomed from Leng Xie. It reverberated in the air as if it were thunder rolling.
However, just as he screamed, blood spurted out of his mouth.
As if it were a blood arrow, fresh scarlet red blood was shot a mile away and dyed the ground red.
As he was too angry, Leng Xie did not manage to control his heart at that moment. His heart rate suddenly increased, directly causing his atrium to shatter. He was close to exploding and dying.
His face changed drastically as he frantically calmed himself down, suppressing the frequency of his beating heart.
“Those who are competent will obtain the treasures!” Su Mo glanced at Leng Xie and spoke coldly.
Immediately after, his gaze swept past the fallen Blood Heart Fruit Tree. His body immediately retreated. Step by step, he quickly retreated, his speed several times faster than when he was advancing.
At that moment, his heart was still beating violently. Even though he was retreating, he still did not dare to directly fly away.
“Su Mo, hand over the Blood Heart Fruits and I will spare your life!” Leng Xie shouted, turning his body around and immediately chasing after Su Mo.
There was no way he would let Su Mo take all the Blood Heart Fruits. He had spent so much time and was in such dire straits. How could he be a sitting duck and let Su Mo take away all the Blood Heart Fruits?
Leng Xie would still consider it alright if Su Mo were to only take one or two Blood Heart Fruits. However, now that Su Mo had taken away all the Blood Heart Fruits, it had exceeded his basal tolerance level.
Leng Xie already could not control the murderous intent in his heart. It was surging ferociously!
However, his speed was no faster than Su Mo’s. Furthermore, as he was not in the same direction as Su Mo, he was simply unable to catch up with Su Mo and could only watch Su Mo move further and further away.
