Chapter 1986: Someone Is Waiting For You
The Devouring Fighting Soul rose as the pitch-black devouring void flooded the sky, pouring out devouring power from it.
“How could this be?” Mo Jue’s body jerked and without control, he was sucked towards Su Mo.
There was no defense for Mo Jue, who was left with only a shoulder and a hand to block the chaotic energy. He instantly flew helplessly towards the devouring void.
“Kill!” As he saw himself about to be devoured, Mo Jue roared. Invisible light shone out from his eyes, directed at Su Mo.
This was a mental energy attack.
Using the mental energy was an attack on a martial artist’s Spiritual Soul. Although Mo Jue did not have the Ancient Demon Eye, his mental strength was exceptionally strong and the attack it unleashed was as sharp as a blade.
Invisible mental strength pierced Su Mo’s eyes and Su Mo’s body jerked, instantly stopping the devouring power for a second.
However, in just that split second, Su Mo recovered by himself. His mental strength was also exceptional and any mental strength attack on him was like throwing an egg against a rock.
The Ancient Demon Eye on Su Mo’s forehead opened, shooting a ray of light towards Mo Jue.
“Ancient Demon Eye!” Upon seeing Su Mo’s Ancient Demon Eye, Mo Jue’s heart jumped in shock. He was very familiar with the Ancient Demon Eye as that was Mo Xiao’s heaven-sent gift.
However, the Ancient Demon Eye had suddenly turned into Su Mo’s power. How could Mo Jue not be surprised?
He knew for sure that Mo Xiao had been killed by Su Mo.
Nonetheless, Mo Jue was at his wit’s end and he didn’t have any resistance left to avoid Su Mo’s mental strength attack.
In the next instant, Mo Jue was sucked into the devouring void.
Peace resumed in the following moments as the other portions of Mo Jue’s body were devoured by Su Mo.
Su Mo temporarily did not refine Mo Jue, only keeping him imprisoned in the devouring void.
That was because he felt that Mo Jue would be useful in the future. Even if he wasn’t, Mo Jue could be killed later on.
Once everything was completed, Su Mo let out a sigh. Mo Jue had been captured by him and the engagement would naturally not be completed.
However, how would he rescue Qingxuan?
Should he transform into Mo Jue and infiltrate the Sun Moon Tribe?
Or ask Bai Tiannan for help?
These all seemed impractical as the True Demons Tribe was involved in the matter as well.
The True Demons Tribe was not like the Sun Moon Tribe. As one of the dominant superpowers of the Infinite Region, they would have many experts in the tribe.
If there was a Rank 4 Empty God, even if Bai Tiannan helped him, he might not be able to escape.
Furthermore, if he entered the Sun Moon Tribe, there was no way for him to avoid being detected by an Empty God. He would be exposed immediately and be stuck in a highly dangerous position.
Su Mo did not leave the King Sage Hall as he lowered his head and thought deeply.
He stared at the stone pillar, his eyes locking onto Long Teng’s name as he pondered whether he could borrow the Dragon Tribe’s strength.
However, although Long Teng had high status in the Dragon Tribe, the Dragon Tribe would not become enemies with the True Demon Tribe for an unrelated acquaintance of Long Teng.
Right at that moment, someone walked out of the stone pillar. It wasn’t Long Teng but Di Yihun or, more correctly speaking, the Hall Spirit of King Sage Hall.
“Shangguan Hao, you can top the King Sage Board and replace Di Yihun as the new test examiner of the King Sage Hall!” The Hall Spirit stared at Su Mo and said in a low voice.
The Hall Spirit had clearly seen Su Mo’s strength, it had exceeded the top-ranked on the King Sage Board, Long Xiaotian.
Granted, Su Mo’s current strength was slightly lower than Di Yihun’s real strength when he had topped the King Sage Board.
More importantly, the Hall Spirit could see that Su Mo was only a Middle Stage Martial Sage who had large potential that was much higher than Di Yihun’s. Time was the only obstacle.
The Hall Spirit could tell that Su Mo would become the strongest King Sage in Infinite Region since the ancient times.
“Oh, then can I obtain the Opportunity?” Su Mo asked, although he wasn’t too bothered about it.
If he could obtain the Opportunity, Su Mo would not care about becoming the new test examiner. After all, the Hall Spirit would only be mirroring Su Mo.
“Of course. As the new test examiner, I will naturally give you the Opportunity!”
The Hall Spirit nodded his head before he continued, “However, I will give you a choice. First, obtain the biggest Opportunity to become an Empty God. The second choice is related to your destiny. Choose one!”
“My destiny?” Su Mo’s eyes instantly narrowed. He was one of the six reincarnation bodies of the Reincarnation Heavenly Sovereign, this much he knew.
If the Hall Spirit was informing him about something regarding his mystery, what was it? Did the Hall Spirit know a deeper secret?
“I choose the second!” Without hesitation, Su Mo made his decision. Compared to the greatest Opportunity to become an Empty God, his destiny was more important to him.
With his talents, it wouldn’t be a problem to become one. Hence, Su Mo didn’t need the Opportunity.
The Hall Spirit nodded his head slightly, he had known the decision that Su Mo would make.
Falling silent, the Hall Spirit stared at Su Mo and whispered, “I will tell you a sentence, just one!”
“What is it?” Su Mo’s eyes flashed brightly as he stared at the Hall Spirit.
“You have already fallen far behind, someone is waiting for you!” The Hall Spirit said in a deep voice.
“Waiting for me?” Su Mo’s eyes instantly narrowed. What did the Hall Spirit mean?
I have fallen behind?
Someone is waiting for me?
Who is waiting for me? The other reincarnated bodies?
“Senior, please explain!” Su Mo cupped his fists towards the Hall Spirit and pleaded.
“Leave your Blood Essence on the stone pillar!” The Hall Spirit shook his head without replying to Su Mo.
Destiny, karma, heaven and earth and reincarnation all had their sets of rules. Su Mo had to rely on himself if he wanted to escape the shackles of his destiny. The Hall Spirit would not tell him anymore.
Su Mo nodded his head slightly and spat out a drop of Blood Essence.
Under his mental thought, the Blood Essence slowly changed and formed his name.
This time, the name he formed was his own name, Su Mo, not Shangguan Hao.
In the blink of an eye, the name formed by the Blood Essence was sucked onto the stone pillar.
Su Mo’s name appeared on the top ranked on the King Sage Board, pressing down Long Xiaotian’s name.
First on the King Sage Board, Su Mo.
The Hall Spirit lightly smiled before he turned around and entered the stone pillar, disappearing without a trace.
Su Mo remained silent for a long time as he stared after the Hall Spirit. The Hall Spirit did not want to interact with him further.
There was nothing that Su Mo could do. The Hall Spirit was an ancient existence and it was definitely something that Su Mo could not stand up against.
“He is actually not out yet!” Su Mo’s eyes fell on Long Teng’s name on the stone pillar.
He wanted to meet with Long Teng but he could not continue waiting.
Sighing deeply, Su Mo turned and left the King Sage Hall.
