Chapter 1815: Against a Martial Sage
Qian Xunyue’s silhouette appeared in Su Mo’s mind at Emperor Xuan’s mountain above the Emperor Xuan Palace.
6 powerful waves of attacks escaped from the 6 Netherworld Devil Sects martial artists and rained down on Qian Xunyue.
Fresh blood stained the skies as the elegant white body fell down the from skies like a falling butterfly.
Su Mo’s blood pumped wildly through his body as he witnessed this scene and screamed in rage. He was startled awake.
Su Mo’s heart jumped in surprise because the Dark Force in his Divine Elixirs that were just about to break through to the next rank suddenly crumbled backwards and trembled violently.
The moment his Divine Elixirs crumbled apart, Su Mo would self-destruct.
Boom boom boom!
Explosive sounds resounded through Su Mo’s body as thick Dark Force hammered strongly against the acupoints in his body as though a horse was being whipped.
Pain shot through every inch of his body and his muscles could not withstand the onslaught of the Dark Force.
Without hesitation, Su Mo released his Blood Force physique and bright rays of light shot through the Bangle Space. His physical body and blood flow immediately became stronger.
He desperately suppressed the chaotic Dark Force in his body and stabilized the Divine Elixirs by pushing the use of his mental strength to its maximum.
After 4 full breaths of time, Su Mo’s Dark Force and Divine Elixirs finally stabilized .
Peace returned to his body.
Su Mo let out a long sigh of relief as he wiped the beads of sweat across his forehead.
He had almost self destructed!
Thankfully, his mental strength was strong. If not, he might not have been able to stabilize his Dark Force.
Yet, his eyebrows furrowed together once his body calmed down.
What was going on?
He had calmed himself down and thrown aside all complicated thoughts in his heart to break through to the next rank. Why did he suddenly recall what had happened back then?
Something wasn’t right!
Su Mo’s heart sunk. This was something that he had not dealt with before. Logically speaking, he would never have encountered such an obstacle after calming himself down.
Even after a long while of pondering, Su Mo still wasn’t sure what was going on.
A few moments later, he sighed a heavy breath and decided to try to break through to the next rank again.
Su Mo knew that something wasn’t right and hence, this time, instead of sprinting to breakthrough his rank, he slowly adjusted his speed and tried to slowly break through.
Nonetheless, the same images appeared in Su Mo’s mind again.
Yet, the images were sharper and cleared this time, causing his heart to jump wildly and lose focus to a greater extent.
Anyone who saw their own lover getting killed could not be calm.
Furthermore, those images were not simple memories. It seemed as though they were cursed to drag Su Mo’s Spiritual Soul along with them, causing him to struggle with pulling out of the images.
This time, Su Mo fell into the same problem but thankfully, he was already prepared for it. In addition to the slow speed of breaking through to the next rank, Su Mo managed to stabilize his Dark Force and Divine Elixirs.
“What is going on?” Su Mo’s face darkened as confusion filled his mind.
If that was the case, how was he going to breakthrough?
If he forced his way through, he might end up having his body self-destruct.
Su Mo did not have any ideas even after pondering it over for a long time. Feeling entirely helpless, he could only leave Sun Moon World and Sun Moon City to head towards True Path Sect.
His only choice left was to seek advice from Saint Elder Zhen Xian.
Originally, Su Mo had intended to find Qingxuan after breaking through to the next rank. However, now that something was wrong with his cultivation, he could only try to find help.
Su Mo’s body shot through the air like a falling air, instantly traversing kilometers and leaving Sky Moon Mountain to head towards Wendao Mountain.
Heavenly Sorcerer Mountain of the Sorcerer Tribe Holy Grounds in Ancientspirit Galaxy.
The two shut eyes of Saint Elder Jia Shen suddenly sprang open in the dark stone room of a cave.
“Breaking through to the Rank 8 Martial Honorable Realm so quickly?” Saint Elder Jia Shen’s eyes shone with cold light.
He discovered movement from the Demon Sealing Soul Curse that he had placed on Su Mo. This meant that Su Mo was trying to break through to the Rank 8 Martial Honorable Realm.
This made Jia Shen very surprised. Su Mo’s cultivation rank’s speed of improvement was too fast. In such a short period of time, he had actually begun to break through to the Rank 8 Martial Honorable Realm.
However, that was also good. He would act personally to kill Su Mo.
Since the Demon Soul Sealing Curse was not an evil curse, the bearer of the curse would not die with it.
“Mingxu Galaxy?” Saint Elder Jia Shen muttered to himself. The location of where the curse had acted up was in Mingxu Galaxy according to his spiritual senses.
“Great, I have to head toward Mingxu Galaxy as well!”
Saint Elder Jia Shen smiled deviously to himself. The Sun Moon Tribe was organizing a crowning ceremony for their Young Clan Leader half a month later and had invited him over to Mingxu Galaxy.
Since Su Mo was there, it would be convenient for him to kill Su Mo on his way there. However, he had to head over there half a month earlier.
Without further hesitation, Saint Elder Jia Shen immediately left the cave to report to the leader to make arrangements for his journey.
Saint Elder Jia Shen had led a group of Martial Sages as well as a few other young geniuses to leave Heavenly Underworld Star not long later and head towards Mingxu Galaxy.
Su Mo flew through the high skies as he headed towards Wendao Mountain.
His face was dark as he could not figure out where the problem was. He could only hang onto the hope that Saint Elder Zhen Xian would have advice for him.
Right at that moment, a shadow suddenly flashed in front of him.
Su Mo immediately stopped and squinted to have a look at who had arrived.
The person in front of him as none other than Hu Sheng of the Empty Sky Sect.
“Su Mo, I have to say that you are dumb to leave the Sun Moon Tribe so quickly!” The short-in-stature Hu Sheng mocked as his eyes glared at Su Mo and his expression was cold.
He had been standing guard outside Sky Moon Mountain and was prepared to wait for Su Mo for a long time. Yet, he had not expected that Su Mo would leave Sun Moon Tribe just 1 month later.
His heart jumped in glee as he finally showed himself after half an hour.
“Are you trying to steal the Seven-colored Glazed Pagoda?” Su Mo’s face darkened but he remained fearless.
Hu Sheng’s aura wasn’t as strong as other Martial Sages’ and he was a far cry from the Grand Priest Wu Lun. He must be a Martial Sage in the initial stages of his realm.
Although Martial Sages were much stronger than Martial Honorables, Su Mo was not afraid of Hu Sheng at all.
With his estimation, he was no stronger than early Martial Sages who were above average, but he should be able to stand against Hu Sheng.
Hu Sheng scoffed and he immediately shook his head to say, “No, this isn’t stealing. I am just getting back what belongs to me!”
“Hu Sheng, I have already entered Sun Moon Tribe and am a member there. Are you not afraid of the consequences of battling against a Sun Moon Tribe member?” Su Mo coldly asked. Although he was not afraid of Hu Sheng, he would rather avoid a battle.
“A Sun Moon Tribe member?”
Hu Sheng burst out into laughter before he smirked, “A mere External Tribe member only… Furthermore, you offended Leng Xie before, do you really think you can enter the Sun Moon Tribe completely?”
Hu Sheng disregarded Su Mo’s threats. He would not be in trouble as long as he did not kill Su Mo.
Besides, even if he killed Su Mo, he would also not cause a huge problem due to the relationship between the Sun Moon Tribe and his Empty Sky Sect.
Leng Xie might even thank him for killing Su Mo!
“If you want to steal it from me, then you must have the ability to do so first!”
Su Mo’s face was stoic and a bright light flashed in his hand for a dazzling longsword to appear.
This longsword was what he had obtained from Fei Tianyu in the Sky Dragon Contest. He had kept Fei Tianyu’s sword after he grabbed it and sent Fei Tianyu flying after his failed sneak attack.
The insects of the Winged Insect Sword were obtained from the Ancient Demons Cemetery and hence, Su Mo was hesitant about using them.
“Ha ha ha!”
Hu Sheng couldn’t help bursting into laughter once he saw Su Mo retrieve the sword and assume a fighting stance.
Could a mere Rank 7 Martial Honorable fight him? What a joke that thought was.
