Chapter 482: A Broken Promise?
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Up in the sky, Su Mo sensed Murong Wudi’s aura plummeting, which signified that his Vital Spirit was about to be exhausted.
“Murong Wudi, this marks your defeat!” Su Mo shouted.
The sword radiance of his Sky-crushing Sword flashed brightly, and many beams of sword Qi blotted the sky and headed straight at Murong Wudi, not offering Murong Wudi any chance of respite.
Although Murong Wudi’s Vital Spirit was about to be exhausted, given a moment, he could also rely on elixirs to replenish his Vital Spirit. Hence, Su Mo attacked ferociously and did not give him that chance.
“Destroy!” Murong Wudi retreated quickly. As both his fists moved together, his Vital Spirit formed mountains and continuously tore apart Su Mo’s attacks.
Murong Wud grimaced. The power Su Mo displayed was far above his expectations, and he was the peer to force him into a corner.
“Martial Soul, come out!” Murong Wudi immediately drew on the power of his Martial Soul for it was the only chance he had at turning the tables. Any longer and he would be defeated.
At this point in time, his Vital Spirit would only be able to hold off a few more attacks.
Murong Wudi’s Martial Soul was a large shadow of a long mountain range with countless mountains and valleys.
His mountain range martial soul was of Rank 1 Heaven Class!
Murong Wudi called upon his ultimate move once again, and drew on all of his remaining Vital Spirit. This move was incredibly powerful. His fist force tore the void apart, causing both heaven and earth to tremble. The power it carried was more than double that of before.
This move was both his final move and his ultimate move.
This move would determine the final outcome of the battle for this would use the rest of his strength.
“Rank 1 Heaven Class Martial Soul?” Su Mo’s eyes flickered upon seeing Murong Wudi’s martial soul for he suddenly had an urge to devour his martial soul. His Devouring Martial Soul would definitely be able to advance after devouring Murong Wudi’s martial soul.
However, he quickly forced down his urge to do so for his opponent was highly regarded and he would land himself in trouble if he devoured the martial soul of Murong Wudi.
Heaven Class Martial Souls were able to increase one’s combat strength by a huge margin. This move was sufficient to pierce through Su Mo’s defense.
It only took a split second for the mighty fist force to bridge the gap and it quickly approached Su Mo.
Su Mo’s eyes narrowed and all the hairs on his body rose. He felt an increasing sense of danger. This punch was just too powerful. Even if he used his other martial souls or his phantom avatar, he may not be able to hold off the attack.
Su Mo immediately released his Devouring Martial Soul, exerting its power to the extreme.
He could safely release his Devouring Martial Spirit in front of others as long as it did not devour blood essence and others’ Martial Souls.
His Devouring Martial Soul floated in the air, dozens of meters tall like a gigantic black vortex, unleashing its mighty devouring power. Murong Wudi’s body shook, and his Qi blood surged.
Wudi’s powerful fist force trembled slightly under the influence of the devouring power, and instantly, its power was reduced by half.
Although Su Mo’s Devouring Martial Soul was not able to add to his attacking ability, it was able to greatly affect his opponents’ strength.
Furthermore, as Su Mo’s cultivation increased, and his Martial Soul advanced in rank, its devouring power became more terrifying.
A sword sliced out, shattering the void. Its annihilating force filled the sky.
Boom boom boom!
The fist force shattered, and turned into nothingness. With another flash of sword radiance, piercing sword Qi cut across the sky and flew like lightning toward Murong Wudi.
Murong Wudi was now a spent force with his Vital Spirit exhausted and having no more strength to continue the battle.
Additionally, under the influence of Su Mo’s devouring power, his blood was churning, going against the flow, frantically trying to flow outwards.
Murong Wudi turned pale when he saw that Su Mo was able to not only ward off his final blow, but also could launch an attack against him.
“How can it be?”
Murong Wudi was speechless, shocked not just at Su Mo’s might, but also at the situation he now faced. He had not expected Su Mo to be hiding such strength or to possess such a strange and mighty force!
He did not have much time to dwell on his thoughts as Su Mo’s attack was already approaching. Murong Wudi could only force a trace of Vital Spirit out from his body, integrating it into his fists and using both his fists to block the oncoming attack.
The next moment, a sharp sword Qi collided with his raised fists.
Murong Wudi was sent flying with a loud explosion, blood spewing from his mouth.
Murong Wudi was thrown back dozens of miles, and crashed into a mountain, falling haphazardly.
Silence fell upon the crowd, as all the Celestialspirit Sect’s disciples and elders were struck dumb at the sight.
The Sect Master’s pro-disciple, Murong Wudi, undefeated amongst his peers, was utterly defeated.
Their gaze moved to Su Mo who stood quietly up in the sky, and marvelled inwardly that this was one that was truly undefeated amongst his peers!
From this day on, Su Mo’s name was not known by people of Celestialspirit Sect, but also throughout Dark Domain.
“He won! He really won!” Tian Chen muttered as his eyes glazed over with a look of disbelief on his face. Yun Fei and Feng Shaoyu were equally stunned.
On the other hand, a smile bloomed across Hong Qingxuan’s face like a blossoming flower. Su Mo would always be able to create miracles.
Huang Yao was completely struck dumb at Hong Qingxuan’s side. Su Mo’s talent was way beyond her imagination, and she couldn’t help but feel inferior next to Su Mo.
She glanced at Hong Qingxuan, and her heart was filled with envy.
She was extremely jealous that a person of such great talent was so close to Hong Qingxuan.
Up in the air, Su Mo gazed at Murong Wudi, his face breaking into a smile as he declared, “Murong Wudi, you’ve lost!”
Su Mo exclaimed inwardly that this person was indeed mighty. If he had not drawn on his Martial Soul Force, it would have been difficult trying to defeat his opponent!
He couldn’t help but let out a sigh. He had always taken pride in his combat strength, but now, he felt that he had been taken down a peg. All sorts of talents existed in this world, and there was no lack of talents possessing combat strength equal to his.
Now, an idea crossed Su Mo’s mind. He had to find descendents for the nine main palaces of Firmament Palace. They were well versed in earthen martial arts, possessed martial souls with earthen properties, and had incredible talent. He could be a potential descendent for Earth Palace.
In the distance, on the mountainside, Murong Wudi got back onto his feet after his fall. His clothes were torn to shred by the sword Qi, and his whole body was covered in dust. He was embarrassed.
Murong Wudi grew pale at Su Mo’s words.
Indeed, he had been utterly defeated, and he could hardly deny it in front of so many people.
“Su Mo, your strength and talent are both incredible, and I admit that I have lost today. However, I will catch up soon, and then it will be time for another battle!” Murong Wudi said seriously.
“Ha ha! I will wait for that day. However, you will first have to honor your bet!” Su Mo laughed.
Murong Wudi’s face changed at Su Mo’s words. His “Mountains-weight Skill” was given to him by his master, the Sect Master of Celestialspirit Sect. He would not be able to give it to Su Mo without his master’s consent.
After a while, Murong Wudi grit his teeth and declared, “Su Mo, I am not breaking my promise, but I will not be able to give the “Mountains-weight Skill” to others without the consent of my master.”
