Chapter 635: A Battle of Minds with Still No Result!
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
“You want to kill me?”
Su Mo scoffed and said with a shake of his head, “You’re not worthy!”
His opponent might have been strong and ranked around 700th on the List of Top 1,000 Talents, but Su Mo did not fear him.
Ji Wenyao narrowed his eyes, slightly surprised by Su Mo’s confidence.
“It doesn’t matter to me whether you are ‘Su Mo’ or not!” Ji Wenyao said coldly, “I’ll say this for the last time, leave Black Rock City immediately, and I’ll explain to Qingxuan myself.”
Ji Wenyao wanted to get rid of Su Mo so he could spend time alone with Hong Qingxuan and win her hand.
As for Li Feng, he had no cultivation and could only count on his exceptional physical strength. He could get rid of this guy in a second!
Su Mo chuckled inwardly. Ji Wenyao really thought he was something else, anyone listening in would think he really was in a relationship with her!
“Don’t test my limits!” Su Mo’s eyes were cold.
“You don’t know what you’re saying!” Ji Wenyao yelled coldly. His aura suddenly increased in ferocity and sent out a rapid stream of sword shadows toward Su Mo.
Su Mo’s aura also increased in intensity, and his energy shot toward Ji Wenyao like a sword. They started to exchange invisible blows.
PUFF! PUFF! PUFF!
The space between the two echoed with clashing sounds, and the air was sliced into countless shards.
This was a battle of Minds!
Their sword will and Minds merged to form sharp but amorphous swords.
This was a battle even more dangerous than a physical battle. Any defeat could cause damage to one’s mind and soul.
Gradually, beads of sweat appeared on Ji Wenyao’s forehead and his face grew pale.
Su Mo’s face was cold. His opponent’s sword will may be much stronger than his, but his Mind was far weaker than Su Mo’s.
The Mind was a manifestation of willpower, and so was the sword will. Although Su Mo’s sword will was weaker than his opponent’s, his willpower was enough to crush his opponent.
Soon, Ji Wenyao spat out a mouthful of blood, his face ghastly pale.
He was instantly knocked back by dozens of steps.
“How could this be?” Ji Wenyao shouted in disbelief, shock written all over his face.
He was completely stunned. His cultivation was much higher than Su Mo’s, so technically his Mind should be able to easily overpower his opponent. Yet now, his Mind was the one to sustain injuries.
CLACK! CLACK! CLACK!
Su Mo walked slowly in front of Ji Wenyao and looked straight in his eyes, his gaze sharp.
“Don’t ever mess with me again, or you’d be dead!” Su Mo said coldly and left for the tavern.
Su Mo did not kill him, because Ji Wenyao’s strength was almost equaled his. Even if he were to kill him, it wouldn’t be an easy task.
Ji Wenyao grimaced in discomfort, and he clenched his fists so tightly his bones made a loud cracking sound. His heart was filled with murderous intent.
“Su Mo, let’s wait and see!” Ji Wenyao spat out and turned toward the opposite direction.
His mind had been greatly damaged, and his strength compromised. He needed to recover fully before he could make Su Mo pay.
After Su Mo returned to the tavern, he instantly entered the Divine Map’s Space.
As soon as he entered the Divine Map’s Space, Lil Eight welcomed him with excited roars.
“Do you want to go out?” Su Mo asked curiously, sensing Lil Eight’s frustration.
Lil Eight nodded his head furiously in response, which amused Su Mo.
“I can’t let you out now, but once the time is right, I’ll let you out to play!” Su Mo sighed and said with a smile.
Lil Eight was of a unique lineage, so Su Mo didn’t dare to let it out alone. He could not risk some expert capturing him!
Lil Eight roared happily, shook its giant snake-like tail, and flew off.
It was getting antsy from being trapped in either the spiritual beast pouch or the Divine Map’s Space all the time.
Now that it knew Su Mo was letting it out, it was overjoyed.
Su Mo shook his head and sat down cross-legged in the yard, as he prepared to devour Beast Souls.
With a wave of his hand, over 5,000 Beast Soul Crystals piled up before him.
A writhing tiny Beast Soul roared soundlessly in each Soul Crystal.
None of these Beast Souls were Class 9 Lv 5 or Class 8 Lv 5, but mostly Class 6 or Class 7, with a few even under Class 6.
Therefore, Su Mo had a much easier time devouring them compared to the Class 9 Lv 5 Beast Souls he devoured previously.
CRACK! CRACK! CRACK!
Su Mo struck at the pile of Soul Crystals with his palm and over a dozen Soul Crystals shattered. Immediately, Lv 5 Beast Souls sprang out from them.
“Devour!” Su Mo yelled, and released his Devouring Martial Soul.
These Beast Souls were powerful, but they were still defenseless against the devouring power and were instantly devoured by Su Mo.
Then, Su Mo started to frantically devour them.
In no time, all 5,000 Beast Souls had been devoured by him.
He was then dumbfounded for his Devouring Martial Soul had yet to advance.
Although the nine halos of his Devouring Martial Soul had turned light gold, there was no sign of it advancing to Heaven Class.
“Damn it, how could this be?”
Su Mo looked very upset. He had exhausted countless Spiritual Stones and devoured so many Beast Souls, to no avail.
Anger clouded his mind and he felt like he needed to vent.
Su Mo suddenly released a punch and a five-colored fist radiance shot toward a mountain in the distance.
The 1,000-meter-tall mountain instantly exploded and rubble flew everywhere.
In the blink of an eye, this mountain was practically flattened.
Finally, Su Mo felt a little better and calmed down.
“It doesn’t make sense!” Su Mo furrowed his brows. His Martial Soul should have leveled up a long time ago!
“Did something go wrong somewhere?” Su Mo muttered to himself. If there wasn’t an issue, he should have to have leveled up after devouring so many Beast Souls!
Of course, that was only his own assumption. He was not certain himself.
“I guess I’ll stop devouring Beast Souls and start devouring human Martial Souls.”
Su Mo’s expression grew grave. If he had to devour human Martial Souls, that meant he had to kill a lot of people.
However, in order to help his Devouring Martial Soul advance to Heaven Class, it was his only choice.
Luckily, he was in Devilish Land at the right time, where he could massacre as much as he wanted.
