Chapter 2025: Grabbed It!
“Incredible!” Su Mo’s eyes narrowed. His mental strength was strong and he knew that An Jian would strike a lightning-fast sneak attack on him.
The grounds were engulfed in a deadly silence as everyone stared intently at the battle grounds. They were all very familiar with An Jian’s skill.
The Dark Shadow Tribe ultimate skill was to hide with no trace. The average Spiritual Senses of a martial artist would not be able to discover them and they could attack without any defenses.
This resulted in the strength of the Dark Shadow Tribe. Typical humans were no match for the Dark Shadow Tribe members in a same-rank battle as they would be defeated before they even knew what was happening.
As such, the Dark Shadow Tribe was a natural assassin, the strongest in the world.
In the ancient times, the fame of the Dark Shadow Tribe had been strong in the galaxy.
However, that was also the reason why the Dark Shadow Tribe had encountered many attacks by various other tribes until they finally lost.
By then, the Dark Shadow Tribe had become an affiliated superpower of the Sky Tyrant Tribe.
In the air, Su Mo gripped tightly his sword as he expressionlessly surveyed his surroundings carefully.
As long as An Jian attacked him, he would discover An Jian straightaway.
Su Mo could also hide himself such that An Jian would not be able to discover him. However, this was not favorable for a fast battle.
Time flew by and roughly five breaths of time later, the hidden An Jian finally attacked.
The space behind Su Mo vibrated and a sharp, cold ray of light shot out towards Su Mo’s back.
At the same time, intense killing intent followed a terrifying Sword Force as it gushed out.
This attack was fast and the moment it appeared, it was inches from Su Mo’s back.
In a split second, it would pierce Su mo.
However, Su Mo’s reaction speed was not something that ordinary martial artists could match up to.
In the blink of an eye, he whipped around and swung the large sword behind him.
A loud metallic sound that vibrated through the eardrums of the spectators rang out. Sparks flew in all directions from the rush of heat and energy that the two opponents threw into their strike.
Su Mo did not move. However, once An Jian attacked, he instantly disappeared again.
Even in the shockwaves that flew out, Su Mo could not spot An Jian.
“Strong!” Su Mo nodded his head inwardly. The Invisible technique of the Dark Shadow Tribe was stronger than his own Invisible Fighting Soul.
The Invisible Technique of An Jian left no trace of him in the world.
“He actually didn’t succeed!”
Elder An Lin of the Dark Shadow Tribe frowned deeply. The lightning-speed attack was blocked by Su Mo, that disciple was truly terrifying!
The group of Wind-thunder Sect members heaved a sigh of relief. If Su Mo could block the first attack, he might be able to block the second, the third, the fourth…
However, An Jian was like a ghost who would appear and disappear suddenly. The possibility of Su Mo defeating An Jian was too low.
Su Mo hovered in mid air. He did not use the Devouring Fighting Soul as he decided it was best not to use his Fighting Soul’s abilities for now.
If Gongcheng Taihao had the same Fighting Soul as him, his identity would be revealed the moment he used the Devouring Fighting Soul.
Right at that point, the next attack arrived. A sharp Sword Radiance appeared above Su Mo’s head.
This sword strike was stronger than the previous one had been as Sword Force flooded the sky. It was like a sacred sword from the heavens had fallen to earth.
The attack far exceeded the previous attack as it held a cold and dominating Sword Force in it that circulated roughly around the sword.
“Great Rotating Sacred Sword Fighting Soul!” Su Mo’s eyes narrowed. He knew that An Jian had used the Fighting Soul strength in this blow.
Su Mo’s heart ached with desire. The strength of the sword was comparable to him using thirty Sword Fighting Souls.
Cold Sword Radiance directed at Su Mo’s head fell down upon him.
Everyone who witnessed this scene had their hearts jumping out of their chests. This blow was evidently An Jian using his top strength. Su Mo might die on the spot.
However, against this blow, Su Mo remained calm as he reached his hand upwards.
“What is he doing?”
“Is he mad?”
Many people exclaimed in shock at the sight of Su Mo opening his hands to reach for the cold light above him instead of hitting it away with a sword.
Is he thinking of grabbing An Jian’s longsword?
Is he crazy?
The sword strike harbored the strength of a Fighting Soul and it was incredibly strong. Even a Rank 1 Empty God would not dare to face it head-on.
The Great Rotating Sacred Sword Fighting Soul was known to be unmatched, where it could tear through anything in its path.
Su Mo trying to grab it was suicidal!
Everyone’s hearts pumped in nervousness as their eyes widened and they stared at the scene.
Yet, Su Mo’s speed was fast and he grabbed the Sword Radiance with his bare hands. However, he wasn’t being too arrogant. Instead, he had absolute confidence in his actions.
Right as he reached for the sword, the Winged Insect Sword in his hand disintegrated and formed a new formation, surrounding his palm.
The few thousand purplish-gold insects formed a large glove around Su Mo’s palm, bright light flashing off their exoskeletons. They made a strong defense around him.
At the same time, thick Chaotic Energy gushed out of Su Mo’s palm, forming a terrifying shock wave.
Su Mo had not used his Blood Force strength and he finally activated it.
Blood Force rushed through his body as his body brimmed like a lightbulb.
Under everyone’s stunned gazes, Su Mo’s fingers wrapped around the dazzling Sword Radiance.
A loud, hollow sound followed a large explosion that resulted in plenty of residual aura rolling out in all directions.
Blinding sparks illuminated the sky, presenting a mesmerizing sight.
All eyes narrowed onto the battle ground and many people were instantly petrified.
Su Mo stood tall in the empty space with his hand stretched out highly as though he could support the firmament.
In his arms was a bright, shining longsword.
Everyone was stunned and it seemed as though they could hear the roar of thunder from the sky. Many peoples’ minds were wiped blank.
What was that?
To grab An Jian’s longsword strike with bare hands meant one had invincible defensive strength. If they had not witnessed the scene personally, they would not have believed that it had happened.
All of this happened in a split second.
Just as Su Mo grabbed the longsword, his other hand swung forward and punched towards the sky above the longsword.
Thick Chaotic Energy was like a grenade that rushed out.
Since An Jian was vicious in his battle, Su Mo did not hold anything back at all.
The two were close and there was no way for An Jian to dodge the fist although he had not showed himself.
An earth-shattering explosion occurred as immense Chaotic Fist Force struck against an object and shattered apart.
At the same time, a painful scream escaped the mouth of large figure that drew an arc across the air as he was flung backward as though he was a trash bag.
Blood splattered across the sky, creating a bloody river as An Jian was thrown backward.
