“Haha! No worries!”
Su Mo smiled and said nonchalantly, “I just think that this person is quite special and might make a comeback!”
Su Mo really believed this. This man was so confident and full of fighting desire, even when faced with a True Darkness Realm martial artist. He had to have some kind of hidden card.
Also, if he were not strong enough, he would not fight the second battle.
Either way, 20,000 Upper Spiritual Stones was not a large sum for Su Mo. So, he placed a bet.
In the fighting ring, Wang Xiao’s fists were covered with a pair of pitch black gauntlets, with pale yellow Dark Force gushing out of his body.
Then, an illusion appeared behind Wang Xiao. It was his Martial Soul.
His Martial Soul was a mill-sized piece of jade that was entirely teal, shiny and limpid.
This Jade Martial Soul was of the Rank 8 Earth Class.
After releasing his Martial Soul, Wang Xiao’s body shone with a green light, and his entire body turned teal, as if he himself were a piece of jade.
“Oh?” The old man narrowed his eyes at the sight of this scene, but he still seemed disdainful.
Even though his opponent was strong, the large gap between the realms could not be easily overcome.
“You’re going to die today!”
The old man chuckled coldly. An one-meter-long spear appeared in his hand, with which he stabbed towards Wang Xiao.
The sharp white spear radiance pierced through the air towards Wang Xiao like a bolt of lightning.
Wang Xiao was unwavering against this move and directly swung at it with his fist.
The fist and spear radiance clashed fiercely together, giving off an explosion. The spear radiance immediately shattered.
In this collision, Wang Xiao was not at any disadvantage.
“Not bad!” The old man’s face darkened as he realized he had underestimated his opponent.
At this moment, the surrounding spectators were also in an uproar.
“What? Wang Xiao has a hidden card?”
“But I’ve bet five million Medium Spiritual Stones on Wang Xiao’s loss!”
“It’ll be hard to tell who will win!”
Everyone was engrossed in chatter, but those who supported the old man were not too concerned. Although it seemed that Wang Xiao could contend with the old man, who was to say who would eventually die?
“Brother Su Mo, how could you tell?” Hong Qingxuan looked at Su Mo in surprise. Li Feng was also surprised by Su Mo’s judgment!
“Haha! I just guessed!” Su Mo laughed.
Hong Qingxuan and Li Feng were speechless and did not believe that Su Mo had just guessed.
At the very least, Su Mo had realized that Wang Xiao was exceptional enough to bet on.
In the fighting ring, after the first strike, Wang Xiao continued waving his fists and sending a wave of fist radiance towards the old man.
BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
With endless explosions, destructive blast waves swept out.
However, the fighting ring was surrounded by a formation that prevented the blasts from reaching the spectators.
This formation had two purposes: to prevent blasts from damaging the surroundings and to prevent contestants from escaping the fighting ring.
The formation would only be lifted after a fighter had been killed.
The Jade Martial Soul greatly strengthened Wang Xiao’s defense, allowing him to crazily attack the old man.
The entire fighting ring flashed with both fist and sharp spear radiance.
While everyone was watching the battle, a thin young man wearing a gold-rimmed purple robe entered the Death Arena. He briefly glanced around and then fixed his eyes on Su Mo, his lips curling into a faint smile.
Then, he found a spot within the spectators stand and sat down.
As the battle continued in the fighting ring, Wang Xiao approached the old man and begun hand-to-hand combat.
THUMP! THUMP! THUMP!
The endlessly clashing fists and spears gave off loud thudding sounds.
The old man had also released his Martial Soul and began fighting Wang Xiao with all his strength, but he could not overpower him no matter how hard he tried. The two were still evenly matched.
“Die!” Wang Xiao roared angrily as he leapt up and punched at the old man’s head.
His fist was as heavy as a mountain and as fast as lightning. He reached the old man’s head in an instant.
“Get lost!” Yelled the old man angrily. He did not have time to dodge and instead thrust his long spear straight towards Wang Xiao’s chest.
He was taking a great risk in trying to force Wang Xiao to abandon his attack in order to save himself.
However, if Wang Xiao did not dodge the attack, the two of them would die together.
Wang Xiao’s fist would strike his head at the same time that he pierced Wang Xiao’s chest.
The old man had thought that Wang Xiao would not want to die with him.
Faced with this deadly consequence, Wang Xiao’s eyes grew even more crazed. He gritted his teeth and did not back down. Instead, he decided to punch down even harder.
“He’s insane!” The old man thought in shock. Fear flashed through his eyes, but it was all too late.
With a dull sound, crimson blood and white brain matter splattered everywhere.
The old man’s head was blasted open, causing him to die instantly.
Just as the old man’s head was blasted open, his long spear also pierced Wang Xiao.
Although Wang Xiao’s porcelain skin emitted a series of sparks, it was still unable to stop the spear from piercing the flesh underneath.
Wang Xiao coughed out a stream of blood.
After a while, Wang Xiao regained his footing, looked at the dead old man, and let out a sigh of relief.
Then, he grasped the long spear lodged in his chest and yanked it sharply out of his chest.
The tip had only penetrated his flesh, not his body. The one man had already died by the time the strike had happened, so not much Dark Force had been injected into the attack.
Therefore, he was not too badly hurt.
The Arena was silent for a few moments, but it soon exploded with noise.
“Wang Xiao actually won!”
“Oh no! I lost all of my Spiritual Stones!”
“Damn it, Wang Xiao had been concealing his strength and actually has exceptional combat strength!”
Many people were upset. They thought that Wang Xiao would surely lose, but the reality was cruel!
Su Mo smiled. He had been right about Wang Xiao.
He had won 20,000 Upper Spiritual Stones, while Li Feng and Hong Qingxuan had lost exactly 20,000 Stones combined. It was not a big deal.
Because Wang Xiao had already fought twice in a row and was injured, he needed to leave the fighting ring after the barrier was lifted.
“Su Mo, I’m going to fight!” Li Feng stood up and shot straight into the fighting ring like an arrow.
Su Mo was taken aback. Li Feng wanted to fight to the death as well!
However, how could he choose someone at his level if he did not have cultivation?
From the fighting ring, Li Feng scanned his surroundings and asked loudly, “Who dares to fight me?”
His echoing words gradually silenced the spectators stand.
