Chapter 648: You Are Dead
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
The whole Arena fell silent as everyone held their breath.
They had not expected Su Mo to not only breach Hua Yuanhan’s Nine Serenities Glaciation but also launch his own counterattack. This was just too amazing!
They were all waiting to see. Could Su Mo really beat Hua Yuanhan?
Hong Qingxuan and Li Feng finally heaved sighs of relief and smiled.
The Su Mo they knew was a man of miracles. He would not be defeated so easily!
Now that Su Mo was launching a counterattack of his own, they were all looking forward to his ultimate comeback!
He had launched a powerful attack at Hua Yuanhan who had then put up a perfect defense to block it.
The dazzling sword radiance landed heavily against the ice shield.
There was an earth-shattering explosion. The large ice shield exploded with shards flying everywhere
The sword radiance continued down its warpath and crashed into the ice armor.
Yet another earth-shattering explosion shook the ring.
Hua Yuanhan and his armor were launched into the sky like a shooting star.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
His armor cracked and broke apart.
He collided heavily against the formation shield.
“How is that possible?” Hua Yuanhan was shocked at Su Mo’s sudden increase in strength. It was far beyond his imagination.
Even his powerful ice defense was not able to block Su Mo’s attack!
Hua Yuanhan could not help coughing and spat out some blood. He had sustained internal injuries.
Su Mo’s mighty sword radiance had shattered his internal organs!
Fortunately, for someone with as high a cultivation as him, this kind of injury was not serious.
“Hua Yuanhan, who ordered you to kill me?” Su Mo landed in the ring, his piercing gaze fixed on Hua Yuanhan.
This person was out to kill him, yet Su Mo did not recall ever offending him. It was thus likely that he was here under someone else’s orders.
Only people from Holy Sky Peak wanted him dead, so Su Mo had already roughly worked out who could be behind this.
However, Hua Yuanhan was from Great Heaven Peak, not Holy Sky Peak. The only person from Great Heaven Peak who bore resentment against Su Mo was Hou Jun.
It was likely that Hou Jun had sent him. Even though he himself was a nobody, Hou Jun had a Martial Royal Realm martial artist for a father.
Su Mo was not sure if Hua Yuanhan was acting under Holy Sky Peak’s orders or Hou Jun’s.
Rather than answer, Hua Yuanhan shouted, “Only one of us will live to tell the tale. Let’s battle!” He immediately released his Martial Soul.
A giant white glacier, as tall as a small hill, emerged and floated behind him. It was accompanied by a terrifying frost air that made the temperature plunge again.
The air they exhaled immediately froze into tiny ice shards.
“You’re going to die today!” Su Mo shot Hua Yuanhan a cold look.
Since Hua Yuanhan was not willing to disclose the identity of who had sent him, Su Mo was not going to force it out of him. The simplest way to solve this was to kill him.
He would find out who the mastermind behind this was later.
His Sky-crushing Sword vibrated violently. As Dark Force pumped into the sword, its radiance shone brighter and brighter.
He leapt into the air, reached an altitude of hundreds of meters above his rival, then slashed down hard.
Magnificent Four-colored sword Qi burst forth, shot through the space, and streaked straight at Hua Yuanhan.
“You need more than that to kill me!” Hua Yuanhan yelled. His aura suddenly soared and doubled.
“Dark Ice Divine Fist!” Hua Yuanhan threw a punch, a huge icy punch, at the incoming sword Qi.
The punch was like a small iceberg. It released terrifying frost air together with a destructive power.
His punch and the sword Qi collided against each other.
Boom boom boom!
The giant icy punch shattered with a bang. Shards of ice flew everywhere.
Su Mo’s four-colored sword Qi did not break, but it had been greatly weakened. It froze into a popsicle before it even touched Hua Yuanhan.
“What?” Su Mo frowned. Hua Yuanhan must have used some form of secret method. Otherwise, he could not be so strong even with the help of his Martial Soul.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Su Mo’s sword shone brightly. He launched nine attacks in a row. Nine powerful sword Qi charged straight at Hua Yuanhan.
In addition, a cold light shot out of his body and followed closely behind the sword Qi toward Hua Yuanhan.
Hua Yuanhan lost his cool and began to take Su Mo seriously. He kept throwing out punches that tore through the void and collided against Su Mo’s sword Qi.
Boom! Boom! Boom!”
The punches shattered and the sword Qi dissipated. The ice shards scattered everywhere while the dissipating sword Qi vanished into the void.
They seemed to be evenly matched.
Suddenly, Hua Yuanhan saw a ray of light streaking towards him. It moved very quickly and reached him in the blink of an eye.
Startled, Hua Yuanhan retreated. He waved to conjure frigid air, forming a block of solid ice in front of him.
The light hit the ice and immediately bounced off.
“It’s… a Spiritual Sword?” Hua Yuanhan’s eyes narrowed when he saw the light for what it was. However, the power this Spiritual Sword exuded was not great, not enough to hurt him.
All of a sudden, the Spiritual Sword swerved and shot toward Hua Yuanhan again.
There was another explosion and the Spiritual Sword was blocked.
Clang! Clang! Clang!
The Spiritual Sword continued to attack Hua Yuanhan, but none of the attacks were able to breach his defense.
Su Mo sighed inwardly. The Spiritual Sword was powerful, but it was almost scrap material. It was of such low level that it was rendered ineffective against high-levelled experts like Hua Yuanhan.
Moreover, the Spiritual Sword might move quickly, but the cold air had a huge effect on its speed, especially once it was about 30 meters away from Hua Yuanhan.
His punch knocked the Spiritual Sword away. Hua Yuanhan looked at Su Mo and said coldly, “Su Mo, do you really think you can defeat me with a broken sword?”
