Chapter 596: He Can’t Win Again!
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Nie Yu’s face turned heavy. He may not have thought of his own, but he still had combat will and he felt the pressure of Su Mo’s attack.
His golden long sword danced in the air. As rays of sword Qi shot everywhere, they collided with the four-colored sword Qi.
Boom! Boom! Boom!”
Explosions resounded everywhere as all four rays of sword Qi were destroyed by Nie Yu, and millions of fine beads Qi scattered in all directions.
Su Mo moved like lightning, and together with his three Phantom Avatars, approached Nie Yu in a flash.
He slashed his sword down, and it carried an earth-shattering might that was aimed straight at Nie Yu’s head.
The three Phantom Avatars also launched their attacks at the same time, aiming for Nie Yu’s chest, lower abdomen and legs.
In face of Su Mo’s final hit, Nie Yu did not attempt to fight it head-on but hastily retreated, trying to create some distance between them.
Su Mo followed closely behind, and together with his three Phantom Avatars, waved their long swords across the sky, slashing straight at Nie Yu.
Nie Yu kept retreating, and continued to slash out with the Dark Force sword in his hand, clashing repeatedly with Su Mo’s sword attacks.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Repeated explosions sounded, and Nie Yu continued to retreat. He and Su Mo may be evenly matched, but when faced with joint attacks from Su Mo and his Phantom Avatars, Nie Yu quickly started to lose ground.
Nie Yu suddenly let out an angry roar, and his aura surged rapidly, and ferocious, it spread everywhere.
He lashed out, and a piercing sword ray tore the air apart and clashed violently with Su Mo and his Phantom Avatars’ Vital Spirit swords.
Explosions rocked the skies and Su Mo was knocked back dozens of meters.
Since his three Phantom Avatars only possessed a portion of his strength, they were sent flying back thousands of meters.
“Did he also use a secret skill?” Su Mo’s eyes hardened. Nie Yu’s strength had increased too suddenly, which could only have come from a secret skill.
However, this secret skill did not increase his strength by much, 50% at most.
“If you use your secret skill, you’re bound to be defeated even sooner!” Su Mo smirked. He immediately activated the Three Secret Techniques.
His aura soared up rapidly, and the power from this surge in aura caused repeated explosions around him.
Su Mo took 20% of his essence, Qi and spirit to increase his strength by 200% immediately.
20% of his essence, Qi and spirit would not cause too much harm to him as he would be able to recover in two weeks. It also wouldn’t affect his vitality much.
“You’re lost!” Su Mo’s eyes glittered, and he sensed an explosive power bursting forth from his body. He had full confidence in his abilities.
With one slash his Vital Spirit long sword slashed viciously at the air.
A powerful four-colored sword Qi flew like the wind, and tore sky and earth apart, heading straight for Nie Yu with unparalleled speed.
This slash was much stronger than any of Su Mo’s earlier attacks, the destructive ripple of sword Qi was unstoppable, heading down like a punishment from the gods.
Nie Yu’s face turned extremely grave in face of this attack. He retreated even more urgently, and the long sword in his hand turned into sword shadows, peppering the sky with an infinite amount of sword Qi to meet Su Mo’s four-colored sword Qi.
The four-colored sword Qi was invincible, and its piercing sharp edge instantly tore apart all of Nie Yu’s sword Qi.
They continued their powerful trajectory and quickly approached Nie Yu.
Nie Yu was no weakling himself. His figure flashed and avoided the attack by a hair’s breadth.
“Trying to escape?” Su Mo smirked, and his long sword danced across the air, forming rays of terrifying sword Qi that came together to form a sword net, completely enveloping Nie Yu.
It was humongous, as if it could cover the entire space, and completely sealed all exit points, forcing Nie Yu to meet this attack head-on.
Nie Yu roared viciously and his long sword emitted a dazzling beam of sword ray as he slashed out violently at the sword net.
A loud explosion sounded as the light golden Dark Force long sword collided against the sword net.
The sword net was torn apart by Nie Yu, but the strength of the recoil caused his body to tremble and blood to gush from his mouth. He was thrown back like a dynamite and flew for dozens of meters.
Su Mo charged like lightning and followed closely behind.
This sword tore open the heavens, and unleashed a formidable sword Qi which headed for Nie Yu’s chest at the speed of light.
Nie Yu had already sustained serious injuries and was powerless to withstand this attack.
He was only able to raise his long sword in front of him for protection.
A powerful four-colored sword Qi slashed at him, tore his Dark Force long sword apart, and crashed against his body.
Nie Yu’s figure burst apart, and scattered across the sky in tiny air currents.
Su Mo let out a sigh of relief. This opponent was really powerful and he could not use his Spiritual Sword in this realm.
If not for his Three Secret Techniques, he would have had some troubles defeating Nie Yu.
Not long after, Su Mo’s figure broke apart and scattered into tiny air currents.
“Why is he not awake yet?”
“I don’t know how he managed to defeat Shen Jie earlier. I wonder if he would be able to repeat this miracle?”
“There is no way he would win again. 977th place is much stronger than 985th place!”
“True. I guess he won’t be able to repeat this feat. If you look carefully at his face though, he doesn’t even seem to be feeling any pressure from this challenge!”
“How odd! There must be something strange about him. He really might have concealed his cultivation!”
Outside and in front of the Heaven’s Proud Jade Wall, the crowd whispered excitedly, with their gaze fixed on Su Mo in front of the wall.
“There’s no way he can do this again!” Wang Zhuo glared at Su Mo, his fists clenched tightly.
He had not even succeeded once and would not accept if Su Mo had two consecutive successful rounds.
Just at that moment, Su Mo slowly opened his eyes.
When the crowd noticed that he had awakened, they all stared expectantly at Nie Yu’s name on the wall.
They then saw Nie Yu’s name move back by one place, and Su Mo’s name appeared on the wall.
Their faces froze, as they stared dumbly at Su Mo’s name on the wall.
Dead silence fell upon the crowd.
Su Mo’s face broke into a satisfactory smile when he saw his name on the wall.
“Ha-ha! Not bad!” Su Mo nodded with smile. Then, he rose to his feet and did not prepare for another challenge.
There was no point in continuing, since there would be no material benefits even if he improved his ranking.
Su Mo’s laughter fell like a rock in a still pond and the crowd came back to their senses.
“My goodness! He really did it!”
“Unbelievable, this is too incredible!”
“How did he do it? This feat is completely unthinkable!”
“No one could have imagined a Lv9 Enlightenment Realm martial artist ever making the List of Top 1,000 Talents!”
The crowd burst into an uproar, completely floored by what they had just witnessed.
They just could not imagine how a Lv9 Enlightenment Realm martial artist could defeat two top ranked talents consecutively!
