Chapter 1640: Spirit-devouring Fighting Soul
After Su Mo returned to Imperial Ancestor Peak, he did not immediately leave with Gu Tianyi. Rather, they both waited for a few days.
He wanted to go to Tushan Town. He had to go back as soon as possible as he had already been away for a month and a half.
Otherwise, he was afraid that Qing Xuan would have already left.
In addition, he had people inform Qing Ya for her to wait for him at the Firmament Palace. He reckoned that she was already waiting for him.
With regards to this, Su Mo found an excuse to give to Gu Tianyi to make him wait a few more days.
Gu Tianyi immediately agreed. He was not worried that Su Mo would disappear again. If he did, Su Mo would not show up again.
After bidding farewell to Gu Tianyi, Su Mo immediately left the Shenwu Academy and headed towards Tushan Town.
This time, Su Mo was extremely careful so as to not be followed again and to prevent the Firmament Palace from being at risk.
After half an hour of leaving the Shenwu Academy, Su Mo activated his
Invisible Fighting Soul and then carefully examined the rear to see if there was anyone following him.
Not only that, he also deliberately took a long, winding route until he was sure that there was no one following him, then he flew back to Tushan Town, reassured.
In the skies, the white clouds drifted and Su Mo activated his Invisible Fighting Soul to hide his body as he went towards Tushan Town.
At that moment, he was already far from the Shenwu Academy. He was only half a day away from Tushan Town.
“Qing Xuan shouldn’t have already left!” Su Mo said to himself. He had yet to pass the Blood Heart Fruit in his hands to her.
Just as Su Mo was flying quickly, he suddenly stopped and his face darkened.
A young man in a woollen robe stood on top of a white cloud more than ten thousand miles away.
This man was handsome and his face seems a little old-fashioned. He stood quietly on top of the cloud.
“Is he waiting for me?” Su Mo frowned upon seeing this. Although he was in invisible mode, the young man was looking straight at him. It was evident that the latter had already discovered Su Mo and was waiting for him.
A chill instantly went down Su Mo’s spines. Had he been followed and discovered again? Who was this person? Had he been waiting for him since long ago? Or had he tracked Su Mo to this place?
Su Mo carefully looked at the young man and realised that the aura of this young man in the woollen robe was extremely introverted. His cultivation was blurry and one simply could not see it clearly.
This meant that the young man was at least of Level 7 Martial Honoured Realm Cultivation.
Su Mo was instantly on guard. This person seemed to be foe, not friend, and as such he had to be careful.
“Who are you?” Su Mo said in a clear voice.
“Xuan Yuanlong!” Said the young man in the woollen robe coldly.
Hearing this, Su Mo was stumped. Confusion was etched all over his face as he asked, “Are you the Divine Son of the Shenwu Academy?”
Su Mo was bewildered. Xuan Yuanlong was the name of the Divine Son of the Shenwu Academy.
“That’s right!” The young man in the woollen robe nodded. Immediately after, he stepped out of the Empty Space and slowly walked towards Su Mo.
Su Mo was startled upon seeing this. He seemed to not have any enmity with Xuan Yuanlong. What did he want?
After a while, Xuan Yuanlong walked until he was a thousand miles away from Su Mo and stood there. He said in a clear voice, “Su Mo, please show yourself!”
Hearing this, Su Mo immediately stored his Invisible Fighting Soul. Although his Invisible Fighting Soul was extraordinary, it was of no use when it came to people of high cultivation.
“Su Mo, I want to understand your Fighting Soul!” Xuan Yuanlong said in a deep voice. His words were extremely direct and clearly expressed what he wanted
“Understand my Fighting Soul?”
Su Mo frowned when he heard this and said coldly, “Your Excellency, don’t you think that your request is a little much?”
Su Mo had always protected his Fighting Soul as if it were a secret. How could he let Xuan Yuanlong understand it?
Xuan Yuanlong nodded and said, “I do not have any other intentions. I merely wish to have an exchange with you.”
“What exchange?” Su Mo asked in a deep voice.
“Exchange my Fighting Soul!”
Xuan Yuanlong’s expression was dry as his thoughts moved. An illusory image rose behind him and a huge grey Maelstrom rose from the back until it were a hundred miles tall. It floated high in the sky.
A light Devouring Power dissipated from the Maelstrom and filled Heaven and Earth.
Su Mo stared fixedly upon seeing this. Xuan Yuanlong’s Fighting Soul was extremely similar to his, a Devouring Maelstrom.
However, their Fighting Souls were of different colours.
For instance, the Devouring Maelstrom of Su Mo’s Fighting Soul was black and seemed extremely frightening.
As for Xuan Yuanlong’s, his Devouring Maelstrom was grey and they both had discerning differences.
Su Mo had heard that Xuan Yuanlong’s Fighting Soul was a Spirit Devouring Fighting Soul. It was ranked number 93 on the Archean Martial Soul Board and was extremely powerful.
As it was so powerful, this was why the Holy Son of the Thirteen Super Forces had consistently been trying to rope Xuan Yuanlong in.
However, Xuan Yuanlong had never publicly stated his position as to which Force he was willing to join.
“My Spirit-Devouring Fighting Soul can devour the Spiritual Qi of all the Heavens and Earth. Similarly, your Fighting Soul has the same Devouring Power. We can get to know each other’s!” Xuan Yuanlong smiled.
His motive in finding Su Mo was simple. He had found out that Su Mo’s Devouring Power was actually able to devour the Fighting Soul of others.
This piqued his curiosity as to why his own Spirit-Devouring Fighting Soul was unable to devour Fighting Souls.
Although there seemed to be no benefit to devouring the Fighting Souls of others, this was a trump card to prevent others’ Fighting Souls from escaping in a battle.
“There is nothing to understand!” Su Mo shook his head. He was unfamiliar with Xuan Yuanlong, they were not close to the point where he would be willing to exchange Fighting Souls.
“Su Mo, I mean no harm. I only have one request.” Xuan Yuanlong did not push too hard, seeing that Su Mo was so serious.
“What request?” Su Mo asked quietly.
“Let me experience your Devouring Power!” Said Xuan Yuanlong.
Su Mo hesitated upon hearing this. This request was not overboard and he would not be on the losing end.
“Alright!” Su Mo nodded and agreed. As Xuan Yuanlong was of a high level cultivation, Su Mo was slightly more courteous as he could not embarrass him.
Immediately after, Su Mo’s thoughts switched as he gently activated his Devouring Fighting Soul.
A light stream of Devouring Power was carried out of his body and instantly shrouded Xuan Yuanlong.
Xuan Yuanlong’s eyes lit up after feeling Su Mo’s Devouring Power. He closed his eyes slowly.
Su Mo was surprised to see this. Had Xuan Yuanlong discovered something in his Devouring Power?
After two breaths, Su Mo stopped activating his Fighting Soul and the Devouring Power instantly disappeared.
Xuan Yuanlong opened his eyes, which were filled with bewilderment, curiosity and uncertainty.
“Your Excellency, if there is nothing else, I will make a move first!” Su Mo cupped his fists. Without waiting for a reply, he went past Xuan Yuanlong and left.
Xuan Yuanlong did not stop as he looked at Su Mo leaving. He furrowed his brows and pondered.
“It seems like it’s missing something?” Xuan Yuanlong muttered to himself. Although he only felt Su Mo’s Devouring Power for a short while, he acutely discovered that his Fighting Power and Su Mo’s were not similar.
His Devouring Power seemed to lack something compared to Su Mo’s. However, he was unsure what it lacked exactly.
“Is it a Devouring Heaven Saint Soul?” Xuan Yuanlong thought to himself. He guessed that Su Mo’s Fighting Soul could be the Devouring Heaven Saint Soul that it was ranked number 19 on the Archean Martial Soul Board.
However, after thinking for a while, he felt that it was not very possible.
Devouring Heaven Saint Soul could devour the Heavens and Earth. It was extraordinarily powerful and its mighty strength could last and shake for an eternity. It was not possible that Su Mo’s Fighting Soul was a Devouring Heaven Saint Soul.
From what he had seen, Su Mo’s Fighting Soul could be another kind of Devouring Fighting Soul. However, it had an additional ability.
The Devouring Power of other Fighting Souls was not very powerful and it was impossible to compare to that of the Spirit-devouring Fighting Soul.
After a long while, Xuan Yuanlong did not think about it anymore. He sighed, turned around and flew back to the Shenwu Academy.
