Chapter 289: You’re Not Qualified!
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
“I’ll die?” Hearing what Su Mo had just said, Jin Yang narrowed his eyes and sneered.
“Su Mo, I’ll admit you’re quite strong, but you’re still not qualified to kill me!” he said in a loud and clear voice.
“You’ll soon find out whether I’m qualified or not!” Su Mo said and then did not look at him anymore.
“Humph!” Jin Yang grunted and then immediately returned to the spectators stand of the Scorching Sun Sect.
The tension between them made everyone secretly look forward to their battle.
The audience was more willing to watch the battle between Su Mo and Jin Yang than the battle between Xie Tianjue and Jin Yang, because the latter would not kill each other.
However, when it came to Su Mo and Jin Yang, things would be totally different. Disciples of Gale Island and of the Scorching Sun Sect always fought each other fiercely, often killing the other.
Within an hour, Su Mo had won another few battles, and the battles of group three continued.
Maybe because of his bad injury, Xie Tianjue was not prepared to fight against Su Mo. It was not long before the battle came to an end.
“The final battle of group three is Jin Yang vs. Su Mo!” exclaimed the hosting elder.
Jin Yang and Su Mo were arranged to fight in the final battle.
As soon as the hosting elder stopped speaking, resounding cheers suddenly rose to the sky, and some ordinary disciples of the Sky Rapier Sect, who had come to watch the battle, excitedly stood up.
This was the most exciting battle for positions in the Top-100-talent Competition.
Before Su Mo and Jin Yang stepped into the fighting ring, the hosting elder continued to say, “You two have yet to lose a battle, so both of you have already entered the top 10 and have spots in the Top-100-talent Competition. You can choose to have a fight or not. It’s all up to you!”
Having heard that, everyone stared at Su Mo and Jin Yang, wondering what they would choose.
Without hesitation, Jin Yang immediately flew up high to the open sky and then coldly glared at Su Mo.
“Get on here!” he boomed.
“You’re courting death!” Su Mo sneered, and also instantly soared up to meet Jin Yang, who stood 200 meters away.
Since Jin Yang was asking to die, Su Mo would not mind killing one more person.
“Su Mo, I’d really like to see how powerful you are!” Jin Yang said coldly with a haughty look.
“I’m powerful enough to kill you!” Su Mo flatly replied.
“Oh, really?” Jin Yang laughed and said, “Let’s see who will end up dead!”
Having said that, he slashed his long saber at Su Mo with a ray of saber Qi.
Su Mo moved like lightning and directly rushed toward Jin Yang.
Unsheathing his Spirit-slayer Sword, Su Mo easily destroyed Jin Yang’s saber Qi and then immediately approached him.
There were only 200 meters between them, so Su Mo closed this distance in the blink of an eye.
“You’re asking to die!” Seeing Su Mo directly rush toward him, Jin Yang roared and violently swung his saber at Su Mo.
The fiery crimson saber radiance suddenly broke the sky, and huge waves rolled out far and wide.
The fierce saber radiance of the saber radiance drew near Su Mo in an instant.
The strike startled the entire audience.
It was fast and powerful enough to split open any martial artist below Lv 5 True Spirit Realm, and it could even kill an ordinary martial artist at Early Lv 5 True Spirit Realm.
Confronted with Jin Yang’s powerful strike, Su Mo did not evade. With dazzling golden light around him, he slashed at Jin Yang’s saber radiance with his radiating Spirit-slayer Sword.
Everyone was shocked that Su Mo dared to fight fire with fire!
The people of Gale Island all remained calm as they had already seen Su Mo’s strength.
The sword met the saber, causing them to immediately clash together.
The thunderous sound stung everyone’s eardrums.
Su Mo was so powerful that his physical strength was equivalent to that of a martial artist at Lv 4 True Spirit Realm. Combined with the Genuine Vitality in his nine Spiritual Spirals, the strike was terrifying.
Jin Yang’s body trembled and was instantly thrown out for more than 1,000 meters, like a bullet.
Everybody was flustered. The mighty Jin Yang was sent flying by Su Mo with only one strike!
The First Elder Lie Huo frowned upon seeing this, thinking, “I’ve misjudged Su Mo and did not expect that he has such strength!”
However, Lie Huo was not worried. He knew that Jin Yang had not yet displayed his true strength. Victory still hung in the balance.
The Second Elder of Gale Island wore a faint smile, thinking, “From now on, the Four Talents of Skymoon Country should be called the Five Talents of Skymoon Country!”
The poker-faced First Elder of Gale Island also hoped that Su Mo would win. He thought, “Although we represent different factions in Gale Island, it’s only an internal conflict. This battle concerns the feud between Gale Island and Scorching Sun Sect.”
As he flew 1,000 meters backward, Jin Yang was frozen in shock.
At this moment, blood was seeping from his hands, and his arms were so numb that he could barely hold his long saber. The power of Su Mo’s sword was beyond his imagination.
More astonishingly, there was a chip on his precious Lower Lv 3 saber point, which was clearly made by Su Mo’s strike.
Although his sword was only a Lower Lv 3 weapon used by martial artists in a lower True Spirit Realm, even an expert at Lv 5 would not be able to damage its blade. Su Mo’s strike was so powerful!
Su Mo did not stop after Jin Yang was thrown out. He swung his long sword at Jin Yang, and rays of sword Qi turned into piercing blades of wind. In a short time, Su Mo caught up with him.
Just as Jin Yang managed to stop himself, Su Mo immediately started to attack him. It made Jin Yang’s skin crawl and sent a chill down through his spine.
Jin Yang rapidly moved to escape Su Mo’s attack.
He quickly retreated, distancing himself from Su Mo. Seeing Su Mo’s body shine with golden light, he realized that Su Mo must have cultivated some kind of powerful Body Refining Skill, so close combat was not an option.
“Su Mo, I admit that you’re really strong. You’re qualified to see my greatest strength!” Jin Yang said loudly with a serious expression.
Everyone was surprised . “Does Jin Yang still have hidden cards? Hasn’t he already displayed his strongest combat force?”
Then, everyone was stunned by what Su Mo said.
“What a shame that you aren’t qualified to see my greatest strength!” said Su Mo, standing a few hundred meters away.
Everyone was stunned. “Jin Yang is wildly arrogant, but Su Mo is even more arrogant!”
