Chapter 1771: It Depends On Your Ability
“Su Mo is so cautious!”
“That’s right! He did not head straight for the County!”
“He is a gifted genius with courage and strategies!”
The people who were watching the fight at Lake Guang exclaimed.
Su Mo would likely have been defeated if he had headed straight to the County. However, as he had asked the locals to help him check for information in advance, that showed that he was someone who was strategic with his moves.
What he had done was within the rules. As long as one had the ability, he could use any means for such kind of contest.
When the men from the Sorcerer Tribe saw Su Mo flying through the sky, their faces darkened.
The locals had helped Su Mo locate a genius and that genius was from the Sorcerer Tribe.
Su Mo flew in the sky and rushed toward the direction of Tianling City.
644,000 kilometers was nothing to Su Mo, given his current strength. In a short while, he got near his destination.
He glanced at Zheng Meilan, who was beside him, and felt a little helpless. She had caught up with him and her speed was comparable with his.
Su Mo flew all the way and soon, he saw Tianling City from afar off. The city was as large as Weiling City.
Su Mo took out his jade pendant and saw a green light spot in Tianling City.
“Great!” Su Mo was elated. After he had eliminated that man, he would be able to go back to the Martial Honored Realm.
When that happened, none of the geniuses would be match for him in the Contest.
The ones who had not been eliminated would be able to go back to one small realm. Even if the rest made it back faster than him and they were two small realms above than him, he would not be afraid of them after he went back to the Martial Honored Realm.
The green light spot might have noticed Su Mo and it did not move.
Su Mo then flew into Tianling City like lightning and headed toward the green light spot.
Suddenly, a skinny youth shot up to the sky from Tianling City and went high up in an instant.
“Su Mo!” The skinny youth saw Su Mo, who was rushing over, and a sharp ray of light glittered in his eyes.
“The Sorcerer Tribe!” When Su Mo saw the skinny youth, he was filled with killing intent.
Since the man was from the Sorcerer Tribe, he did not have to show him any mercy.
The man from the Sorcerer Tribe was decisive. When he saw that Su Mo was at the same cultivation level as him, he immediately turned around to escape.
“Haha! You will not be able to catch up with me!” The skinny youth laughed. Although he did not have the confidence to fight Su Mo, given that he was the same cultivation level, he was confident that Su Mo would not be able to catch up with him.
“I shall kill you!” Su Mo shouted and waved the huge mace in his hand.
A ray of dazzling grey force shot out from the mace and it was about the size of a house, hitting the skinny youth on his back.
“What?” The skinny youth was shocked when he saw the grey force. He could vividly feel the power of the blow and it was like a raging sea.
Without hesitation, he moved away to avoid the blow.
However, at that moment, something strange happened. A strong devouring power engulfed him and caused him to freeze.
“Oh no!” The skinny youth was alarmed. He felt death knocking on his door.
He immediately took out the jade pendant and tried to escape the area.
However, Su Mo’s attack was like a thunderbolt cutting across the sky. The skinny youth did not have enough time to escape.
Immediately after he took out the jade pendant, he was hit by the mighty grey force before he could smash the jade pendant.
After the skinny youth let out a shrill scream, the people in Tianling City saw him exploding in the sky. He turned into Blood Fog and nothing was left of him.
After the powerful grey force hit the skinny youth, it cut across the sky and exploded after it hit some place far away. It then dissipated from the area.
The genius from the Sorcerer Tribe had been killed by Su Mo with one blow!
Hiss! Hiss! Hiss!
Gasping sounds were heard everywhere around Kunyun World.
Governor Zheng and some of his men witnessed the scene from Tianling City and they were shocked by Su Mo’s callous actions.
Zheng Meilan, who was behind Su Mo, was stunned. She could vividly feel the might of Su Mo’s blow.
She would describe the blow as powerful!
In the next instant, Zheng Meilan dropped her jaw. She seemed to have witnessed something incredible happening in the world.
The aura in Su Mo’s body shot up continuously!
Rank 2 Martial Emperor Realm!
Rank 3 Martial Emperor Realm!
Rank 4 Martial Emperor Realm!
In the twinkle of an eye, Su Mo’s aura had risen to the Martial Honored Realm. He stood tall in the sky with his black hair blowing in the wind as the domineering power of a sovereign filled the area.
“Martial Honor!” Zheng Meilan shouted and she was filled with amazement.
How is this possible?
How can his cultivation level rise so quickly?
Was he telling the truth when he told her that he was a Martial Honored Realm martial artist? Moreover, he mentioned that he was at Rank 7 Martial Honored Realm!
However, he should be around 40 to 50 years old and it was impossible for him to possess such a high cultivation level!
Zheng Meilan was curious but no one could provide the answers to her questions.
After Su Mo had killed the skinny youth, he turned around and left for Lingzhou County.
Since he had resumed to the Martial Honored Realm, he no longer had any fear. It was time for him to spar with Qin Yun.
Zheng Meilan was in a daze as she watched Su Mo disappearing from sight. Her outlook about the world had changed completely.
Are all the geniuses in the outside world so powerful? Or is it only this man who is so powerful?
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Air-rending sounds broke out as Governor Zheng flew toward Zheng Meilan with his men.
“Lan’er, did he pass the reward to you?” Governor Zheng asked in haste.
“Reward?” Zheng Meilan was stunned when she heard the question and she shook her head.
“Oh no!” Governor Zheng turned pale when he heard her reply. Su Mo had promised to reward him for helping to locate the man. However, he had left without leaving the reward behind!
Did he do it on purpose, or has he forgotten about it?
“Come, let’s follow him to the County!” Governor Zheng said. Having said that, he went after Su Mo in a haste.
Zheng Meilan quickly followed behind. She was not interested in the reward but she wanted to see what the astounding youth was up to!
There was an uproar in Lake Guang at that moment as well.
“Has he been killed?”
“The genius from the Sorcerer Tribe has died before he could escape!”
“Su Mo is ruthless!”
The people talked among themselves. So far, he was the first genius to be killed in Kunyun World.
The rest of the geniuses still had an opportunity to escape after they had been defeated. After all, it was only the Sky Dragon Contest and it was not a Death Battle. No one was out to kill.
However, Su Mo did not show any mercy and he had killed the genius from the Sorcerer Tribe with one blow.
“He is digging his own grave!”
Saint Elder Jia Shen, who was at the camp of the Sorcerer Tribe, looked pale and his eyes were filled with killing intent.
Although he had expected the geniuses from his tribe to risk losing their lives if they were to meet Su Mo, he could not contain his anger when he witnessed the younger ones being killed by Su Mo.
“He is too much!”
“There will be no justice if he is not killed!”
“He is savage. After killing so many of our men, he is still doing that!”
The men from the Sorcerer Tribe were enraged. The killing intent in them swirled out and caused a gust of wind to sweep over the area.
The various forces were shocked by the killing intent that the Sorcerer Tribe had for Su Mo. Even the water in Lake Guang was unable to wash away the hatred that the Sorcerer Tribe had for him.
“Sigh!” The King sighed when he saw the hatred that the Sorcerer Tribe had for Su Mo. He could not care less about Su Mo.
He was certain of one thing. For the sake of the Imperial Ancestor Court, he would not set himself against the Sorcerer Tribe.
“Your destiny lies in your ability!” Xu Wushen said within himself as he looked at Su Mo, who appeared in the water screen.
If Su Mo was unable to complete the task that had been assigned to him by Myriad Worlds Mountain, after Sky Dragon Contest, he would not be given any protection. He would have to depend on himself to escape from the Sorcerer Tribe.
Basically, that would be impossible. It would be impossible for Su Mo to escape from Saint Elder Jia Shen.
However, if Su Mo managed to accomplish his task, Xu Wushen would protect Su Mo all the way to Myriad Worlds Mountain.
