Chapter 658: The Insoluble Scheme
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo abandoned himself to killing, evil spirit surged through his body. He just wanted to kill everyone.
Numerous martial artists fell at the end of his sword as his cultivation power increased.
Within 10 minutes of his killing spree, his body shook violently as the genuine Qi in his nine Spiritual Spirals turned into Genuine Vitality.
He had recovered to the True Spirit Realm!
Su Mo laughed wildly. Crazy murderous intent filled his eyes while his body readied itself to fly for the Demonic Sword.
Suddenly, his body halted. His face showed signs of an internal struggle.
He closed his eyes, took a deep breath, and then opened them again.
His eyes became clear.
“What happened to me?”
Su Mo stared blankly and turned his head. He looked over at the towering Demonic Sword, suffused with massive, black demonic aura. A huge amount of black gas continued to seep out from it, turning into Devilish Qi.
“Was I possessed?” He said aloud, his brow furrowed. He remembered the feelings that stirred inside him only moments ago. He had been filled with utter ruthlessness and overcomed by madness.
If it weren’t for his strong willpower, he would have never escaped from the evil energy’s grips.
He turned around and was tremendously shocked to see that many other people had turned into killing machines, just as he had.
Their eyes were ink-black with slight sanguine light. Their bodies surged with evil spirits.
Their faces were extremely ferocious, and they were killing each other all-out.
“Uh…!” He swallowed hard and shivered. For the very first time, he felt fear.
He was not scared of the people. He was afraid of losing himself again to the evil that had now taken control of the others. He did not want to partake in the slaughter.
He was certain that the people had completely lost control to the murderous desires of the evil force.
“What to do?”
He knew that if continued to kill even one more person that he would come to the same end like these people before him.
“Enter the path of killing first?”
This was obviously the path toward becoming a demon. There was no turning back!
This was an insoluble scheme set by the Sword Devil, Dugu Shang. One had to be like him, a murderous demon, to obtain the Demonic Sword.
Su Mo really wanted to leave this place, yet there was no way out.
While he pondered a solution, a noise rose behind him—a youth in blue thrust his sword to his heart.
The youth had reached Lv 9 Spiritual Martial Realm and was utterly possessed.
The tip of his sword crushed into Su Mo’s back with a deep sound. However, Su Mo was not injured.
He had recovered to the True Spirit Realm. An Lv 9 Spiritual Martial Realm, martial artist, could never damage his powerful defense.
Su Mo’s sword glowed as the youth fell to the ground.
Su Mo could feel his killing desire growing again as he killed the young man.
It was not a good sign!
“Fu*k it. If I don’t kill, I’ll definitely be killed if I don’t get my strength back!”
He sighed that he had no choice.
Since he could not leave the place, he was now forced to kill to live.
Su Mo could only hope that the spiritual wisdom within him would not allow him to be possessed.
He rose up into the sky and flew forth.
There were many True Spirit Realm experts in the melee ahead. A bearded man swung his saber at Su Mo.
“Die!” He barked.
The sharp saber Qi cut through the air and moved toward Su Mo at lightning speed.
Although this man was not totally possessed, his eyes were filled with murderous desire, which indicated that he was not far from it.
The Sky-crushing Sword shivered and glowed. With a downward arc, a massive light-gold sword Qi was sent out toward the man.
The sword Qi tore apart the saber Qi instantly and split the man in two.
The Primordial Genuine Qi within Su Mo’s body turned next into Genuine Vitality and then to Nirvana Genuine Vitality. The order was exactly the same as it had been when he cultivated it.
The familiar processes he had followed during cultivation were being mimicked in the chaotic environment he now found himself in.
His assumption was that if he could recover to Lv 7 True Spirit Realm, the place he had started to practice the Grand Chaos Five Elements Skill, he would have the Five Elements Force again.
His strength would surely surge again.
He continued rushing forward because more would be coming to kill him.
From both sides, sword Qi and spear radiance dashed at him.
The spear radiance appeared to be more powerful, it was cast out by a Lv 2 True Spirit Realm martial artist.
Su Mo pointed at the sword Qi on the left with the Spiritual Sword and charged at the spear radiance.
The nine Spiritual Spirals ran wildly as a golden light shined from his body. He split through the spear radiance with his sword and arrived at the attacker’s head.
He raised his Sky-crushing Sword high and then brought it down heavily with dazzling sword radiance.
The middle-aged man in the teal robe hurriedly raised his spear to block him.
The massive power sent the man crashing from the sky onto the ground.
The dark earth cracked all around and smashed a 100-meter-wide deep hole at the center.
“Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!”
Su Mo flew above the hole as his Sky-crushing Sword glowed, sending dozens of sword Qi into the hole.
Horrible shrieks rose from the deep hole before he was crushed into nothingness.
On his other side, his Spiritual Sword killed the other attacker just as easily. The Lv 1 True Spirit Realm attacker could not block his Spiritual Sword.
The Spiritual Sword returned to Su Mo, circling around him, as he slowly flew forward.
The sword continued to kill his enemies swiftly, at lightning speed, as he traveled along.
In no time, Su Mo reached Lv 2 True Spirit Realm.
