Chapter 1754: Rank 1 Spiritual Martial Realm
Su Mo carefully surveyed the black-shirted young man from Sacred Devil Hall and heaved a sigh of relief inwardly. Thankfully, his opponent was at Rank 1 Qi Cultivation Realm like him.
If that was the case, there was nothing for Su Mo to fear.
However, his opponent carried a large sabre that looked like a good weapon.
The black-shirted young man burst out into laughter, “I didn’t expect that my first opponent would be a famous godly talent. That is interesting!”
“Interesting? It will be a sad story for you!” Su Mo coldly said. The man was confident.
“You are a genius indeed, but look at your state now. You only have a pitiful demonic beast teeth in your hands, but you want to battle with me?” The black-shirted young man scoffed. He was a Rank 8 Martial Honorable and under normal circumstances, he would definitely lose to Su Mo.
However, they were at the Rank 1 Qi Cultivation Realm now and their various strengths had been greatly suppressed. Any hidden card they had would be useless and hence, the difference in their strengths would be minimal.
At that moment, the only way to increase their strengths would be to rely on external factors.
“I have a weapon and armor with me now, how do you expect to fight against me?” The black-shirted young man sneered as he waved the large sabre in his hand. At the same time, he pulled up his shirt to reveal some grey animal skin armor.
“Where did you get the weapon and the armor?” Su Mo asked as he frowned. He did not know the strength of the man and hence he did not hurry to attack his opponent.
“I destroyed the village behind me. These are the best weapon and armor the village had!” The black-shirted young man laughed.
“I see!” Su Mo nodded his head. The young man was vicious to have destroyed an innocent village for a weapon and armor.
Slowly raising the sharp beast teeth in his hand, Su Mo activated the Divine Elixirs in his body. A thin layer of five elemental Dark Force flowed through his body and gradually merged into three-colored Dark Force.
“You can be ousted!”
The black-shirted young man laughed again before he stomped down with his feet and jumped into the air. He struck down with the sabre in his hand to attack Su Mo fiercely.
This sabre was heavy and fast, killing intent surged out of it and instantly closed down on Su Mo.
“Trash like you dares to be so arrogant?”
Su Mo immediately burst out into laughter once he saw the man’s attack. At the very most, the strength of the attack was equivalent to the Rank 7 Qi Cultivation Realm.
His heart instantly relaxed, he had thought that the man would be strong! In the end, he was just another weakling.
Coldly yelling, Su Mo waved his arm and the beast’s teeth in his hand shot out like a bolt of lightning towards the young man.
In an instant, the beast’s teeth and the sabre struck against each other.
A deafening boom sounded as the two weapons clashed against each other. At the same time, the black-shirted young man’s body jerked and the sabre in his hand was instantly flung from his hands.
“What?” Fear covered the young man’s face as his body was flung backward. The Blood Essence in his body surged uncontrollably and a mouthful of fresh blood spurted out of his mouth.
He could not have known that Su Mo would be so strong!
That was illogical!
The suppression of their cultivation ranks pressed limitations on their physical body. How could Su Mo still have such exceptional strength?
His fighting strength was already strong and in addition to the Rank 1 Upper sabre, he was still not a match for Su Mo!
Without hesitation, the black-shirted young man whipped around and fled desperately with his tail between his legs.
“Where do you think you are going?”
Su Mo shouted and chased after the young man. How could he let his opponent escape? This was an opportunity for him to regain a whole realm of cultivation rank.
Su Mo chased closely after the young man on the grass plains.
In the short-term, Su Mo would definitely not be able to chase up to the young man. After all, he wasn’t exceptionally strong in his speed.
“Hand over the jade pendant and I will spare your life!” Su Mo yelled out. Although he was only about 100 feet from his opponent, he could not manage a long distance attack at his current cultivation rank.
“Hand over the jade pendant? Are you dreaming?” The black-shirted young man coldly laughed. Without the jade pendant, he would be eliminated and hence, why would he hand over the jade pendant?
Although he had lost the battle, he still had a chance at the contest as long as he managed to escape.
“You’re seeking your own death!”
Killing intent flashed murderously through Su Mo’s eyes. Since his opponent had refused to hand the jade pendant over, Su Mo would be ruthless towards the man.
“Get lost!” With a loud shout, Su Mo viciously swung the beast teeth forward, allowing it to fly through the air like a sharp sword towards the black-shirted young man.
The beast’s teeth shot through the air like a bolt of lightning, aiming directly at the back of the young man.
Su Mo did not kill the man, however, since the man did not give in to his demand, Su Mo could only injure him.
“Not good!” The young man exclaimed with fright. However, it was too late for him to dodge the beast’s teeth!
The painful sound of tearing flesh ruptured through the sky as the beast’s teeth tore its way into the back of the young man.
With an ear-piercing scream and a fresh spurt of blood from his mouth, the strong force and momentum from the beast’s teeth flung the young man forward a few hundred feet.
Luckily for him, he had armor on, and hence his organs had not been pierced.
Su Mo stepped forward and rested his feet on the neck of the black-shirted young man, restricting his movements.
“Asshole, don’t think of getting the jade pendant!”
The black-shirted young man yelled out angrily. Being stepped on had utterly humiliated him and he flipped his palm over to reveal the jade pendant before he crushed it immediately.
The jade pendant was instantly crushed apart into specks of light that dotted the sky.
“Hm?” Su Mo’s heart jumped. Although he had won, he had not obtained the jade pendant. His efforts wouldn’t be wasted, right?
Right at that moment, the jade pendant turned into rays of light that enveloped the young man’s body.
In an instant, the young man suddenly teleported out of Kunyun Small World.
At the same time, the animal skin armor fell onto the floor where the young man had been.
Su Mo’s body shivered and an invisible but strong cultivation aura rushed into his body.
“My cultivation rank has really increased!”
Su Mo grinned happily. Whether or not he obtained the jade pendant, as long as he eliminated a person, his cultivation rank would increase.
Thereafter, he checked through his body and realized that he was more than 10 times stronger than he had been previously. He had recovered a full cultivation realm and was now a Rank 1 Spiritual Martial.
Heaving a long sigh of relief, Su Mo smiled. He would be in better circumstances now that he was a Rank 1 Spiritual Martial. Whether it be his strength or speed, all aspects of his strength had gone up a notch.
Glancing at the armor on the floor, Su Mo came to a realization. It seemed that the items of Kunyun Small World would not be teleported out.
Yet, the armor and the sabre were no longer useful to him.
Thereafter, Su Mo retrieved the jade pendant and checked it. There were no other geniuses within a 10 kilometer radius around him.
“Where is everyone?” Su Mo shook his head helplessly and he randomly picked a direction and ran.
Su Mo’s speed had increased by more than 10 times after recovering a realm of cultivation rank. He flew forward through the grassy patch of land.
