Chapter 478: An Astonishing Bet
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo’s sword attack was shattered with a wave from Murong Wudi.
The crowd sighed inwardly. As expected, Su Mo did not stand a chance against Murong Wudi. This was the same for all the martial artists of Lv 3 Enlightenment Realm in the Celestialspirit Sect.
Although Huang Yao wasn’t surprised, she still felt a little disappointed.
Su Mo was still not Murong Wudi’s match!
Just then, what Su Mo suddenly said silenced the crowd.
“The bet of 100,000 Medium Spiritual Stones is too small. How about 500,000 Medium Spiritual Stones?” Su Mo said seriously.
The valley was in an uproar after a short silence.
“Did I hear that right? 500,000 Medium Spiritual Stones!”
“Gosh! Is Su Mo crazy?”
“Does he have enough Spiritual Stones?”
“He still added to his bet on this hopeless match. Is he really that confident?”
The crowd was shocked and all were staring at Su Mo in surprise. No one was expecting Su Mo to defeat Murong Wudi, so they did not understand what he was trying to do.
“500,000!” Murong Wudi said with a slight frown. He did not care how big the bet was, but he did not have that many Spiritual Stones.
Nonetheless, since he was so sure he’d emerge victorious, Murong Wudi nodded and said, “Okay! I’ll do it. However, if you lose and can’t pay in Spiritual Stones, I’ll take away your sword instead!”
Murong Wudi could tell with a glance that the sword in Su Mo’s hand was a Lv 6 Imperial Divine Weapon, which was worth far more than 500,000 Medium Spiritual Stones, so he would be pleased to win that treasure sword.
“If you win, then this is yours.”
Confidence was written all over Su Mo’s face. He did not have 500,000 Medium Spiritual Stones but that did not matter because he was sure he’d win!
The reason why Su Mo proposed such a high bet was to earn loads of Spiritual Stones from one fight. Since he opponent was so sure of himself, he would definitely not refuse such a high bet.
“What will you do if you don’t have 500,000 Medium Spiritual Stones?” Su Mo asked. As the Master’s pro-disciple, Murong Wudi must be pretty rich, but 500,000 Medium Spiritual Stones was a fortune that was beyond the means of a regular martial artist of the True Darkness Realm.
“I won’t lose!” Murong Wudi said flatly, full of confidence.
“If you lose?” Su Mo asked again.
“It won’t happen!” Murong Wudi said.
Su Mo scoffed inwardly and pressed, “What if you do?”
Murong Wudi frowned. He had already stated that he would not lose, but Su Mo still continued to press him for an answer.
After pausing for a thoughtful moment, Murong Wudi nodded and reassured Su Mo, “I might not have that many Spiritual Stones, but I have enough valuable treasures to offset them.”
At those words, Su Mo grinned and said, “Haha! The cultivation skill you cultivated is pretty good. Why don’t you… use this cultivation skill as your bet?”
Su Mo was interested in his opponent’s powerful cultivation skill. He guessed that it was stronger than the Nirvana Cultivation Method. Moreover, its name seemed to suggest that it is a cultivation skill of wood property and that would suit him very well.
“What?” Murong Wudi’s face darkened and he said coldly, “How dare you go after my cultivation skill. Forget it. I have other treasures to offset the difference.”
Murong Wudi would definitely not bet his cultivation skill on the match. His upper grade King rank Mountains-weight Skill was both extremely powerful and precious. He would definitely not give it to anyone so easily.
Su Mo said, disdainfully “Are you afraid of losing? And losing this cultivation skill as a consequence?”
Murong Wudi was not dumb. He knew that Su Mo was trying to provoke him, but he still shook his head and said, “Forget the cultivation skill. I will not bet Mountains-weight Skill on this match.”
“Hahahaha!” After hearing these words, Su Mo suddenly looked up and burst into loud laughter. This laughter rang across the valley and puzzled the crowd.
“Murong Wudi, you’re not worthy of being the Master’s pro-disciple and the invincible martial artist of the same level!” Su Mo raised his sword in his hand and shouted scornfully, “My Sky-crushing Sword is a Medium Lv 6 Imperial Divine Weapon, which is worth several million Medium Spiritual Stones. Yet, I bet it on this match. However, you don’t even dare to risk your cultivation skill. You’re so cowardly and insecure. Are you even worthy of being the pro-disciple and the invincible martial artist of the same level?”
Using his Vital Spirit power, Su Mo’s voice spread in all directions and could be heard more than a hundred miles away. Almost all from the Celestialspirit Sect heard his words.
“What’s going on? Who wants to gamble with Murong Wudi?”
“God! Who’s this? How dare he provoke Murong Wudi?”
“Using an Imperial Divine Weapon as a bet! How confident he is!”
“Come on, let’s go to Casino Valley!”
Soon, countless disciples and a large number of elders rushed to Casino Valley to see what was going on.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
In a short time, many disciples gathered at Casino Valley. The number of people on both sides of the ravine surged to more than 100,000 people in a few breaths.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
On Towering Sky Peak, three figures flew out of the attic. They were Feng Shaoyu, Tian Chen, and Yun Fei.
“It’s the 11th Junior Brother’s voice,” Tian Chen said with surprise.
“What’s going on?” Yun Fei slightly frowned.
“11th Junior Brother is about to fight against Murong Wudi in Casino Valley. Let’s go and have a look!” Feng Shaoyu shook his head helplessly. He had not expected Su Mo to create such a big commotion in Casino Valley.
They then rose up into the sky and flew toward Casino Valley.
In Casino Valley, Murong Wudi’s face was gloomy and a cold light flashed in his eyes. He became angry upon seeing the large number of disciples drawn here by Su Mo’s words.
“Alright! Su Mo, since you’re asking for a beating, I’ll grant your wish. The Mountains-weight Skill is my bet!” Murong Wudi clenched his jaw and said coldly.
Murong Wudi placed his Mountains-weight Skill as his bet and he knew full well that Su Mo was provoking him. He must still had full confidence in his own strength though.
On the other hand, Murong Wudi stopped belittling Su Mo. Su Mo knew how powerful his Gravitational Field was, and yet still raised the bets. He even placed his Imperial Weapon on the line. He must have a powerful hidden card.
However, Murong Wudi was not afraid of him at all for he had full confidence in his abilities!
