Chapter 574: Direct Attack
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
At around noon the next day, Su Mo and Li Feng arrived at Blood-refining Gorge.
“Su Mo, do we also attack them directly?” Li Feng asked Su Mo.
“Yes. Let’s attack them directly!”
Su Mo was powerful and bold now, so he had nothing to be afraid of. After giving it more thought, he said, “However, as we are uncertain about the strength of those True Darkness Realm experts of Cold-blood Hall, I should go first. You can join me later!”
Although Su Mo felt more confident because he had leveled up, it would be safer for Li Feng to join him later, as they did not know their enemies’ true strength.
Li Feng nodded. He also understood that he would probably drag Su Mo down if he tagged along.
“I will kill them, and you are responsible for collecting the treasures!” Su Mo added.
Li Feng nodded again and then jumped off of Lil Eight’s back.
Su Mo then recalled Lil Eight back into the spiritual beast pouch. After that, he swiftly flew toward Blood-refining Gorge.
Blood-refining Gorge was a vast canyon that spanned over hundred kilometers. Su Mo found the main gate of Cold-blood Hall in the middle of the canyon.
It was a huge cave that led straight into the heart of the mountain. There were four black-robed men guarding the entrance to the cave.
Su Mo flew like lightning toward the gate and appeared before the cave’s entrance in an instant.
“Who are you?”
The four black-robed guards immediately snapped at Su Mo as soon as they saw him.
These four men were not weak. They were all at Lv 7 True Spirit Realm.
“I’m the one to finish you.” Su Mo sneered. He unleashed a stream of sword Qi from his fingers.
Blood splattered everywhere as the sword Qi split the four black-robed men at their waists. They could not even resist it.
Su Mo looked at the deep cave and strode in without hesitation.
Li Feng arrived at the entrance more than a dozen breaths after Su Mo entered the cave. He collected the loot and went into the cave as well.
Su Mo discovered that the cave was huge and it got more spacious the deeper he went in. The cave was also inclined downward, so it obviously led to somewhere deep underground.
The cave was not too dark, thanks to the Luminous Stones inlaid at the top of the rock wall every few dozen meters. They lit up the whole cave.
Su Mo unleashed his spiritual consciousness deep into the cave as he marched on.
However, his spiritual consciousness failed to reach the end of the cave even after three kilometers.
“It’s so deep!” Su Mo was slightly surprised. He retracted his spiritual consciousness as he was worried that the people of Cold-blood Hall would discover him.
After a little while, Su Mo had already advanced more than three kilometers in the cave, and he guessed that he had reached the depth of 333 meters.
“Who’s there!” A cold shout burst out. Four more black-robed men appeared before Su Mo, and they were all at Lv 9 True Spirit Realm.
Without even a pause in step, Su Mo killed the four black-robed men with a stream of sword Qi just like before.
A little after that, a huge stone gate appeared before him, in front of which stood two black-robed men.
These two had likely heard the commotion earlier, so they attacked Su Mo as soon as he appeared.
A bloody palm print and a giant bloody claw struck toward Su Mo like lightning.
At a half step to the Enlightenment Realm, these two men were pretty strong. However, they were fighting Su Mo.
Su Mo killed them instantly with a single stroke. However, their attacks also caused a loud explosion.
Following the two explosions, part of the cave fell apart with a loud rumble.
Su Mo frowned. “Those inside probably heard the loud explosion!”
“I’ll just attack directly!” Su Mo made up his mind and bolted toward the stone gate.
With one punch, the huge gate was crushed and turned into rubble.
Su Mo walked through the gate and found a huge underworld. Its radius was unknown as there was no end in sight.
Several kilometers ahead, there was a stretch of blood-red buildings that stood silently in this underworld.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Several figures tore through the air and moved toward Su Mo.
“Who dares mess with Cold-blood Hall?”
“He’s tired of living!”
There were dozens of Enlightenment Realm martial artists shouting and rushing toward Su Mo.
“Haha! Very well!” Su Mo laughed wildly and dashed to these people.
With the Sky-crushing Sword in hand, sword radiance flashing out, and streams of sword Qi exploding into the air, another cruel killing spree was kicked off.
These Enlightenment Realm martial artists were far weaker than Su Mo. Even if there were dozens of them, they could not handle one stroke from Su Mo.
“Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah!”
Heart-wrenching cries filled the area. The sword Qi cut through all of them as if it was cutting wheat. Broken limbs flew everywhere, and none of them survived.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Black-robed figures rose up into the air one after another from the building complex ahead.
The loud commotion here stirred up the whole underworld, and countless experts were now rushing toward Su Mo.
Su Mo glanced at the swarms of black figures and estimated that there were no less than 30,000 of them.
These people were all martial artists above the True Spirit Realm, and there were hundreds of thousands of low-level martial artists in the building complex.
Su Mo’s eyes turned red as his murderous intent reached its peak. He stared at these people as if they were delicacies.
He was so excited as all of these people would become fodder for his cultivation.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Countless Cold-blood Hall martial artists flew toward Su Mo and stopped over a kilometer away. They were shocked and confused as they sized him up.
“You are… Su Mo?”
“Isn’t that Su Mo?”
“I can’t believe Su Mo is attacking the Hall!”
Countless experts of Cold-blood Hall immediately exclaimed aloud after seeing the face of the intruder.
They had been trying to kill Su Mo for a long time, but they could never find him. To their surprise, he now delivered himself to their doorstep!
“Haha! How dare you show up here!” The eerie laughter was unpleasant.
There were two middle-aged martial artists standing at the front of Cold-blood Hall crowd, they were respectively dressed in a teal robe and a long brown robe. It was the teal-robed middle-aged man that spoke to Su Mo.
These two possessed enormous aura, which made them stand out from the countless Cold-blood Hall martial artists.
Both of them had reached Lv 1 True Darkness Realm!
“Humph! How dare you kill our men in our territory! You must be tired of living!”
“Skin him and pluck out his sinews! Let him suffer the most cruel torture in this world!”
“Haha! I have never tasted the blood essence of a peerless genius before. It must be delicious!”
The experts from Cold-blood Hall spoke coldly with intense killing desire in their eyes.
