Su Mo smiled. It was a rare occasion for someone to proactively deliver Spiritual Stones straight to him.
The crowd was all smiling when they saw that Wang Zhuo had accepted the bet.
The stout young man said with a smile, “Give me a moment. I will invite the third Elder of Sunflower Firm over.”
He then strode away.
The crowd waited quietly, and many looked at Su Mo in surprise since he remained calm in the face of it all. He betrayed not a shred of guilt.
They became more puzzled. Could Su Mo truly be Lv 9 Enlightenment Realm? There was no way this could be true.
Su Mo must be confident in asecret skill which concealed his cultivation! The audience guessed.
However, no matter what methods he might have employed, once Sunflower Firm’s third elder inspected him with his martial soul, all would be known!
The stout young man returned with a tall and skinny middle-aged man after about 15 minutes.
This middle-aged man had a goatee and was clad in a white robe, giving off a sage-like image.
“Third Elder, this is Su Mo!” the stout young man pointed Su Mo out to the middle-aged man.
“I see!” the middle-aged man nodded, and looked Su Mo up and down in surprise.
The stout young man had filled him in about the earlier scene, and he could also not believe that Su Mo could be a true Lv 9 Enlightenment Realm martial artist either, so he had immediately rushed over.
He wanted to reveal Su Mo’s true colors to everyone.
Su Mo looked at this sage-like middle aged man and saw that his aura was thick, dense, and rather converged. Su Mo was not able to discern this man’s cultivation, but he guessed it was probably no lower than Lv 6 True Darkness Realm.
“Su Mo, are you ready? I’m about to begin!” the middle-aged man smiled at him.
“You may begin anytime!” Su Mo said calmly, his face unchanged.
Everyone was surprised by his calm and collected manner. Was he really that confident?
A trace of amusement flashed in the middle-aged man’s eyes. He guessed his ability was unknown to Su Mo, allowing him to remain confident.
Then, the middle-aged man released his Martial Soul.
a shadow of a gigantic eyeball as large as a millstone. It looked hideous and terrifying.
This Eyeball Martial Soul was not high, only Rank 6 Earth Class.
Under his control, a strange ray emitted from the eyeball and enveloped Su Mo, examining his cultivation.
Su Mo was surprised. No wonder they said the man could discern fact from fiction when he had an eyeball for his Martial Soul. It was strange and yet amazing.
Everyone held their breath in anticipation of the result, their eyes fixed on the sage-like middle aged man.
It would soon be clear what Su Mo’s real cultivation was!
They then saw the middle-aged man’s face suddenly freeze. His eyes grew wide and his mouth dropped open.
They were all astonished by his behavior. Was Su Mo really of Lv 9 Enlightenment Realm cultivation?
Even so, there was no need for such an exaggerated expression!
Wang Zhuo’s heart dropped at the expression on the middle-aged man. He had a bad feeling all of a sudden.
“Senior, what is his true cultivation?” Wang Zhuo could not help but ask.
The middle-aged man said blankly, “L…Lv 9 Enlightenment Realm!”
“What? Is he really Lv 9 Enlightenment Realm?” Wang Zhuo’s face froze and his heart sank. He had lost the bet!
“My god! He really is of Lv 9 Enlightenment Realm cultivation!”
“He’s invincible! With such strong combat strength and his ability to fight above his level, he would be the first of his kind in 10,000 years!”
The crowd burst into frenzied discussions upon the middle-aged man’s confirmation.
No-one doubted his words, since he was very reputable. He was able to discern the cultivation of lower level Martial King experts, meaning he had no trouble with Lower ranked realms such as Enlightenment Realm or True Darkness Realm!
“Hand over the 20,000 Upper Grade Spiritual Stones!” Su Mo chuckled.
“That’s…!” Wang Zhuo hesitated. He had not thought he would lose this bet, and now that he lost, he was reluctant to hand over the Spiritual Stones.
Such a large sum of Spiritual Stones was equivalent to half his fortune!
“Don’t test my patience!” Su Mo’s face turned cold and his gaze sharpened.
Wang Zhuo quaked slightly. He did not dare refute, and with so many pairs of eyes trained on him, he could not bring himself down to repudiate.
He clenched his jaw and took out a storage ring, handing it over to Su Mo.
“There are 5,000 Upper Grade Spiritual Stones and 150 million Medium Spiritual Stones in the ring.” Wang Zhuo uttered words with painful look on his face.
Su Mo quickly checked then kept the storage ring.
He chuckled and strode unhurriedly away from the square.
The crowd looked at his departing figure with different expressions. There were surprise, shock, envy, and a range of various others present.
Wang Zhuo’s face was scarily dark, and he looked at the dazed middle-man, asking disgruntledly, “Senior, are you sure you got this right?”
Wang Zhuo could not accept this. He could not accept this reality.
This time, the middle-aged did not respond to Wang Zhuo and started muttering to himself.
“Nine Spiritual Spirals?”
“The Vital Spirit within his Spiritual Spirals is even more terrifying than Dark Spirit!
“How could that be?”
The middle-aged man’s brows knit tightly together. He had clearly seen the source of Su Mo’s strength.
Su Mo’s nine Spiritual Spirals and the five-colored Vital Spirit that lay within them had nowhere to hide under the gaze of his Heavenly Eye Martial Soul.
True Darkness Realm martial artists would have converted their body’s Vital Spirit to the more powerful Dark Spirt. Dark Spirit was also known as Dark Force and was much more formidable than Vital Spirit.
Yet, he had seen for himself that Su Mo’s Vital Spirit embodied a power that was stronger than an average martial artist’s Dark Spirit.
This left the middle-aged man completely dumbfounded. It was just too shocking!
After he left the square, Su Mo strolled through Great World City.
It did not take long before he found a luxurious inn and checked himself in.
Su Mo mulled through his options in his room. Then he took out the Divine Map, and entered into its space.
After Su Mo had checked into the inn, whatever happened that day spread like wildfire across Great World City and across the entire Dark Domain.
A Lv 9 Enlightenment Realm martial artist had made onto the List of Top 1,000 Talents. He became the first of his kind!
His name was Su Mo!
