Chapter 1757: Su Mo In Danger?
Su Mo sped through the dense clouds in the sky.
Through the conversation with the elder, he was clearer of Kunyun Small World’s situation.
Kunyun Small World was one big continent that was about 10,000 kilometers wide. Various countries were under the control of a large superpower, the Kunyun Empire.
Kunyun Empire’s royal city was in the north, about 300 kilometers from where he was.
Aside from that, Kunyun Empire was split into 9 separate countries that were each about 1,000 kilometers wide in radius.
These large countries were called the Nine Major Countries and included Lingzhou Country, Tianzhou Country, Guzhou Country, Huazhou country and other countries.
Su Mo was currently in Lingzhou country and he was headed towards the capital of the country.
The capital city was the strongest and busiest city in all of Lingzhou country and Su Mo was headed there to find some weapons from martial artists there.
The previous city that he had been in in was too poor and there were no True Spirit Realm martial artists and hence no suitable weapons for him.
Although the area of Kunyun Small World was not as wide as Firmament World, it was much stronger than Firmament World.
This was because this world was connected to the outside world and any martial artist above the Martial Emperor Realm could freely travel between the small world and the outside world.
Furthermore, the small world was on Trinity Star’s Lake Guang and hence the progression of martial arts in the small world was strong and fast.
“It seems that this small world isn’t controlled by the Triple Deities Sect and it is a free world by itself!” Su Mo muttered under his breath. Perhaps, it was because of the Sky Dragon Contest that the small world had been used at the last minute.
If that was the case, the leader of the small world must know of the existence of the Sky Dragon Contest.
Yet, Su Mo wasn’t worried about that at all. Since the small world was agreed to be used by all the major superpowers, it must be relatively fair. Kunyun Empire wouldn’t plan any scheme to sabotage the contest.
Taking a soft breath, Su Mo silently calculated. He needed to eliminate 6 more people for his cultivation rank to recover to the Martial Honorable Realm.
If he wanted to recover his original strength, he needed to eliminate 12 more people. It was important for him to complete the Sky Dragon Contest.
Right at that moment, a small green dot once again appeared on the jade pendant that Su Mo had been holding in his hand. Su Mo instantly brightened up.
Yet, in an instant, his face fell abruptly. He realized that the small green dot was rapidly heading towards him.
“This… is he in the True Strong Realm?” Su Mo’s eyes narrowed. The movement of the small green dot flashed closer and closer to him.
This speed was much faster than Su Mo’s current speed of flying and Su Mo could deduce that his opponent was definitely not in the same cultivation rank as him, the True Spirit Realm.
Su Mo’s heart sunk heavily, someone had actually recovered to the True Strong Realm. This was a bad news for him.
Without hesitation, Su Mo whipped around and flew off in the other direction.
He didn’t have absolute confidence in beating his opponent if there was a whole cultivation realm difference between them. If his opponent was a regular opponent, Su Mo could still be considered lucky. However, if his opponent was a godly genius, Su Mo would be dead meat.
Granted, although Su Mo had many hidden cards and weapons that he could not use, he had the chaotic energy that was devastatingly strong.
Nevertheless, Su Mo decided to pull away from his opponent for his own safety.
Su Mo sped off in the northern direction at the maximum possible speed that he could fly.
In the outside world above Lake Guang, no one had left among the hundred thousand spectators.
Instead, more and more people gathered as many martial artists from the various islands across Lake Guang gathered at the spot.
The few thousand people gazed at the water screen as they laughed, joked and chattered among themselves.
Many interesting events were unfolding through the water screen by the various contestants of the Sky Dragon Contest.
Some people were chased after demonic creatures while others were beaten mercilessly by locals that they tried to steal weapons and items from. Some contestants had landed in a barren place and had not managed to recover any cultivation rank even after running for a few days and nights.
While there were those who had terrible luck, there were also others who were incredibly lucky.
For instance, Wu Qiong of the Sorcerer Tribe had landed in an area where there were many other contestants. After defeating 4 opponents in a row, his cultivation rank had recovered to the True Dark Realm and his strength increased speedily.
At the same time, Qin Yun of the Triple Deities Sect had landed in a large city and without even needing to step out of the city, 3 other talents unwittingly fell into his trap.
Qin Yun also managed to obtain a large number of items and weapons as he defeated others.
The top talents all had considerable luck. Since the Giant Beings Clan members had large sizes, they didn’t dare to enter any cities or towns at the start.
However, once their cultivation rank recovered to the Spiritual Martial Realm, they could use a secret technique of their tribe to scale down their body to the size of an average person.
“He is in danger!”
The king frowned as he stared at Su Mo through the water screen. A Black Scale Clans member was chasing after him. Su Mo’s opponent was in the True Spirit Realm and not the True Strong Realm.
The reason why Su Mo’s opponent could travel quickly was because he sat on a demonic beast and flew through the air.
The king knew that Su Mo must have judged wrongly and thought that his opponent was in the True Strong Realm.
Nonetheless, Su Mo made a wise decision to escape. The genius of the Black Scale Clan was a strong genius and, most importantly, he had obtained a very strong weapon.
A 4th grade Middle weapon and a strong armor as well as a 4th grade Lower Shield in addition to the 3rd Rank 9th Grade demonic beast. The Black Scale Clans member could beat anyone in the same cultivation rank as him.
Su Mo’s performance thus far was still not bad as he had managed to escape danger and attain victory even in the face of 30 opponents. He had defeated his opponent in a single blow, surprising many.
In the Sorcerer Tribe camp, Saint Elder Jia Shen had also narrowed his eyes as he stared solemnly at the water screen.
His gaze switched from between Su Mo and the Sorcerer Tribe geniuses.
He hoped that Su Mo could last till the end and clash against the few top geniuses of the Sorcerer Tribe. By that point, Su Mo would definitely die.
“Quickly run away!”
Saint Elder Jia Shen sighed. If Su Mo did not manage to escape, he might be defeated by the Black Scale Clan genius and the Sorcerer Tribe members would not be able to kill Su Mo.
On the other hand, Xu Wushen locked his fists behind his back as he stood at the forefront of the crowd. Although he had seen Su Mo’s situation out of the corner of his eyes, his gaze eventually locked down on Xue Juntian.
At that point, Xue Juntian’s cultivation rank had already reached the True Strong Realm and he was currently heading towards the capital of Kunyun Empire.
Xu Wushen nodded his head silently as he saw Xue Juntian’s actions. The capital of Kunyun Empire was the core territory in Kunyun Small World. If Xue Juntain could establish a strong fort in the capital, the chances of him attaining victory at the end was large.
After all, the Sky Dragon Contest had just begun and although a few people had already been eliminated, the real contest had yet to begin.
“Su Mo is in danger now!”
“That’s right! Hei Chan from the Black Scale Clan is also a top genius whose powers are exceptional. Furthermore, he has a whole body of weapons and there is virtually no way of overcoming him in the same cultivation rank!”
“Although Su Mo is strong, he does not have any strong weapons!”
Numerous people muttered among themselves. Su Mo was a prominent person whom many had their eyes on and they noticed his current predicament.
“Palace master!” Qing Ya stared worriedly at Su Mo with nervousness etched across her face.
However, she was not only worried about Su Mo, but also Jiang Shenye.
At that moment, Jiang Shenye was being surrounded by two top talents and Qing Ya’s heart could not rest for a second for the two men.
