Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
“Wu Kai, ranked 70th on the List of Top 100 Talents!”
The moment Su Mo heard his name, he knew Wu Kai’s ranking on the list.
He still had the Legend of the Firmament, which he had purchased from the Sky-sea Pavilion. The names of all the talents had been clearly recorded on the List of Top 100 Talents of the Hong Domain.
“Su Mo!” After introducing himself, Su Mo stood up from his seat.
Since Wu Kai wished to spar with him and had been polite, Su Mo would show him due respect.
Su Mo went to the center of the courtyard and said, “After you!”
Wu Kai took a huge axe from his back and fixed his gaze on Su Mo.
His axe was extremely huge, about the size of a door. It was glittering and its body was wide and thick. This was a heavy duty weapon and was extremely heavy. It was known as the Mountain-splitting Axe.
“Su Mo, my Genuine Vitality and physical strength are at the same cultivation level. Just one blow from me is equivalent to a million pounds. It’s very powerful and able to kill an ordinary Early Lv 5 True Spirit Realm martial artist. If you’re unable to take the blow, you might die!” Wu Kai warned Su Mo.
“Give it your best shot!” Su Mo said with disdain.
“Hahaha! Alright! Since you’re so confident, I’ll give it my all!” Wu Kai said with a laugh. The Genuine Vitality in his body surged, and his aura increased tremendously. The Mountain-splitting Axe shone brightly.
Wu Kai’s muscles squirmed and formed into lumps of iron. He exuded an immense force.
There was silence in the courtyard. Everyone was looking at the two of them.“Will Su Mo be able to defeat Wu Kai, ranked 70th on the List of Top 100 Talents?”
All of them were looking forward to the outcome.
Zhu Shaojing smiled, but in his heart, he was sneering. “Su Mo, let’s see if you still dare to be so arrogant. You will definitely lose!”
Zhu Shaojing was well aware of Wu Kai’s strength. He vividly remembered that Wu Kai was so powerful that he could flatten everything.
He had sparred with Wu Kai during the previous Top-100-talent Competition. If Wu Kai had not stopped at the critical moment, Zhu Shaojing would have been split into two by him and lost his life.
Zhu Shaojing did not believe that Su Mo could defeat Wu Kai.
Xu Xinghan and Mu Lingping were standing nearby, watching Su Mo with their mouths agape.
They had not gotten over the fact that Su Mo had defeated Shi Jie in just one strike.
“Brother Xu, do you think Su Mo is able to defeat Wu Kai?” Mu Lingping asked softly.
“I think… it’s not possible!” Xu Xinghan shook his head in a daze.
Wu Kai held his Mountain-splitting Axe with both hands, and his aura had enhanced to its peak.
Wu Kai jumped up and traversed dozens of meters—he was soon right above Su Mo.
“Slash!” Wu Kai shouted. His huge axe tore the air apart, streaking a bright ray across it. He slashed down at Su Mo’s head.
This blow was powerful enough to split a mountain!
This blow was powerful enough to make one sink!
This blow could split a mountain that was a few hundred meters tall and cut off a river.
“He’s so powerful!” Su Mo’s eyes glimmered and he looked shocked.
This blow was extremely powerful. Any ordinary Early Lv 5 True Spirit Realm martial artist would not have the courage to counter the blow, even though Wu Kai’s cultivation was only at Peak Lv 3.
There were many talents at the banquet. Some of them had a cultivation that was at Peak Lv 2 True Spirit Realm, but most of them were at Lv 3. Among the talents, Peak Lv 3 was the highest cultivation.
There was a great disparity between Lv 3 and Lv 4. One had to cross over from the lowest level to the middle level. Even most of the Top 100 Talents were stuck at Peak Lv 3 True Spirit Realm and were unable to advance to Lv 4.
Wu Kai’s huge axe was surrounded by a powerful force that could cause much destruction. He slashed down at Su Mo’s head with an extremely fast speed.
Everyone opened their eyes wide, not wanting to miss this exciting moment.
At that instant, golden lights shone out brightly from Su Mo’s body. It was dazzling.
All of them saw Su Mo lifting up his hand to grab the axe.
“What is Su Mo trying to do?”
“Is he crazy? He wants to grab Wu Kai’s battle axe with his bare hand!”
All of them were shocked by Su Mo’s action.
Even the three top talents, Jia Yuanji, Han Yijian, and Hong Lian, stood up, looking shocked.
“Su Mo is courting his own death by trying to grab the axe blade with his bare hand!”
“Wu Kai is extremely powerful. Even those ranked in the top 10 on the List of Top 100 Talents would not have the guts to do so!”
“Although Su Mo’s body is glittering as though he has cultivated some powerful Body Refining Skill, it cannot be so powerful that it enables him to grab Wu Kai’s blade!”
“Wu Kai’s power is able to split Lower Lv 3 weapons, let alone a bare hand.”
The crowd was stunned, but most of them were mocking Su Mo. Even though Su Mo was powerful, it was useless. He was brainless!
Many of them shut their eyes. They could not bear to see a peerless genius being hacked in two. The scene would be bloody.
Even Wu Kai was shocked. He had not expected Su Mo to be so crazy as to grab the blade with his bare hand.
He wanted to stop the attack because he did not bear any grudge against Su Mo and did not want to kill him. However, he had given it his all and there was no way for him to stop now.
In the next instant, everyone saw Wu Kai’s huge axe land heavily on Su Mo’s golden palm.
There was a loud explosion that shook the earth. The ground under Su Mo’s feet cracked and the cracks spread out everywhere.
However, the bloody scene that everyone had expected did not appear.
All of them froze. Before their eyes was a scene that they would remember for life.
Wu Kai was hanging in the air, holding his Mountain-splitting Axe. He maintained his hacking position.
Su Mo stood tall on the ground and had one hand lifted up. He was holding on to the blade of the Mountain-splitting Axe tightly.
“He caught it!”
“How can this be?”
“This is impossible! It must be an illusion!”
All of them were stunned. Their eyes nearly popped out of their heads as they could not believe what they had just seen.
Wu Kai’s blow had the force of a million pounds but Su Mo caught it easily with one hand. It was astounding!
Wu Kai was stunned as well. It had never occurred to him that a martial artist who was at the same level as him could grab the blow with his hand.
The more shocking part was that he did not even put on a glove and had used only a single bare hand!
Just one bare hand was able to take the force of a million pounds. This power was beyond imagination!
