Chapter 646: No Doubt?
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Hua Yuanhan was no ordinary martial artist. Everyone was absolutely sure that Su Mo would be defeated.
Hua Yuanhan landed in the fighting ring, his face expressionless. He immediately turned to Elder Lin and said, “Elder, please activate the formation now!”
Su Mo would become like a rat in a hole once the formation was activated. This was why Hua Yuanhan requested for its activation right away.
Elder Lin glanced at Su Mo at Hua Yuanhan’s words. He immediately activated the formation once he saw that Su Mo didn’t seem to have any objections.
A gigantic air shield formation soon surrounded the entire fighting ring again.
Elder Lin sighed. He felt sorry for Su Mo since there was no doubt as to who the victor of this battle would be!
Su Mo, a genius for-the-ages, was about to die in the fighting ring.
Elder Lin thought it was a shame that Su Mo was about to meet his end since he greatly admired Su Mo. Even if he was a Martial King Realm expert, he still admired Su Mo’s incredible talent.
However, this was the Death Arena, he would not stop them since they have both stepped into the fighting ring.
“Place your bets!” Elder Lin announced.
Everyone started placing their bets, but no one wagered on Su Mo this time.
Everyone immediately placed a bet of 100,000 Upper Spiritual Stones on Hua Yuanhan since they were all sure he would emerge victorious.
Hong Qingxuan and Li Feng were the only ones that did not place their bets. They stared dumbly at the fighting ring, frowning at the scene in front of them.
“Oh no, brother Su Mo might be in danger!” Hong Qingxuan was very worried.
Li Feng was also worried. After a brief thought, he said calmly, “That might not be true. Su Mo might ultimate comeback!”
Li Feng knew that Su Mo had a powerful hidden card, the secret skill that could greatly increase his combat strength. He just wasn’t sure if Su Mo could defeat Hua Yuanhan with that secret skill.
After all, Hua Yuanhan was ranked 400th on the List of Top 1,000 Talents. Yin Tianchou, ranked around 600th on the list, was far weaker than him.
“Brother Su Mo, you must stay safe!” Hong Qingxuan murmured to herself as she stared at Su Mo.
She was extremely worried, because in the event Su Mo was defeated, they would not be able to save him.
After all, the formation surrounding the fighting ring couldn’t be broken unless they were as strong as Martial Kings.
“Let’s place our bets!” Li Feng said softly, “We must have faith in Su Mo!”
Hong Qingxuan nodded and they placed their bets immediately. They still placed 100,000 Upper Spiritual Stones on Su Mo.
They were the only people in the entire Arena that wagered on Su Mo.
In the fighting ring, Hua Yuanhan smiled at Su Mo and said, “Su Mo, I’ve been waiting for this for a long time!”
Su Mo’s expression remained different, but he was nervous to face Hua Yuanhan.
He had never expected a genius ranked in 400th on the List of Top 1,000 Talents to accept his challenge!
However, Su Mo might be surprised but he did not despair. No one could tell who would emerge victorious until the battle has ended.
“Are you here to kill me?” Su Mo asked flatly. He could tell from Hua Yuanhan’s words that his motive was not to earn Spiritual Stones, but to kill him.
“It doesn’t matter what my intention is!” Hua Yuanhan shook his head and replied, “You were destined to die the moment you stepped into the fighting ring!”
Hua Yuanhan was calm and confident. Although Su Mo was ridiculously strong, the enormous difference between their cultivation couldn’t be bridged.
Su Mo’s cultivation was far below him, so he wouldn’t stand a chance against him.
Su Mo’s eyes lit up. He was on high alert.
He didn’t know how strong his opponent was, but he was going to do his best!
“Make your move!” Su Mo said frostily.
“Haha!” Hua Yuanhan nodded with a smile and replied, “I hope you’ll live to tell the tale after this!”
Hua Yuanhan attacked right away. With a wave of his arm, the surrounding air turned chilly and formed a huge glacier that shot toward Su Mo.
The glacier moved as fast as lightning, and was so cold that the temperature of the fighting ring fell rapidly. Space seemed to freeze, and the floor was covered by a thick layer of frost.
“What’s this?” Su Mo was astounded to see this. He felt the surrounding air stagnate and this impeded his movement. He couldn’t dodge this attack.
As the glacier approached him, Su Mo’s Dark Force started to froth, and his body glowed golden. He brandished his sword with both hands and split forward.
A 300-meter-tall sword radiance burst out of Sky-crushing Sword and tore through the frozen air, flying toward the glacier.
The huge glacier was shattered by Su Mo with a loud bang, and ice shards flew everywhere.
However, Su Mo was sent flying like a cannonball. He flew for almost 3,000 meters, and only stopped when he crashed against the formation air shield.
Su Mo spat out a mouthful of blood. His blood immediately solidified into crimson ice cubes and fell onto the fighting ring.
“He’s indeed powerful!” Su Mo’s face was grave as he wiped away the ice shards on his lips. His opponent lived up to his rank of 400th, for he was much stronger than Yin Tianchou. Su Mo couldn’t even take one blow from him.
Su Mo’s body was already covered with ice. His clothes became as solid as metal, and there was a thick layer of frost on both his hair and his brows.
All the spectators sighed inwardly when they saw this.
Su Mo was extraordinary, but his cultivation was too low, so he couldn’t possibly be a match for Hua Yuanhan.
Many people felt sorry for Su Mo, but they were still delighted that they could still win a large sum of Spiritual Stones from this battle.
Hong Qingxuan was as white as a sheet. She was so nervous, her hands were clasped tightly together.
“Qingxuan, you don’t have to be worried. Su Mo has an extremely powerful secret method, so he won’t be defeated so easily!” Li Feng comforted her when he saw how pale she looked.
Having said that, Li Feng couldn’t help but be worried too.
Li Feng and Hong Qingxuan were on pretty good terms after these few days of travelling together and got along well because they were both mutual friends of Su Mo.
Hong Qingxuan took a deep breath and some color returned to her face by Li Feng’s words.
In the fighting ring, Hua Yuanhan was still as calm as ever. He looked at Su Mo with surprise and said with a smile, “You’re good! You should feel proud for surviving my attack!”
He might be praising Su Mo on the surface, but his expression was that of contempt and disdain.
