Chapter 672: Comparisons Are Odious
Su Mo took just over 10 days to reach Celestialspirit Sect.
Towering Sky Peak was still silent and uninhabited as usual.
Su Mo went straight up to his practice room on the third floor.
He sat cross-legged in his room and released his Devouring Martial Soul.
As he carefully felt the change in his Devouring Martial Soul, his brows furrowed.
“Nothing’s changed!” he said to himself.
His Devouring Martial Soul had reached Heaven Class, but the only thing that had changed was the strength of its devouring power, which had increased several times over!
“Did it not gain any additional abilities?”
Su Mo was slightly disappointed, but since there weren’t any new abilities, he wasn’t about to dwell on it. After all, he had already benefited a lot from the sharp increase of its devouring power!
He used his mind to summon a huge eyeball from within his Devouring Martial Soul. It was Xue Chan’s Martial Soul, Ghostly Magic Sight.
As he was using his mind to communicate with the Ghostly Magic Sight, he suddenly felt a stream of strange power flow into his mind.
This power was connected to his willpower. With the help of this strange power, he could use his willpower to construct a virtual world — a dreamland.
“What an extraordinary Martial Soul!”
Su Mo was quite impressed. This Martial Soul could not only allow him to construct a dreamland but also improve his eyesight.
If he activated his Ghostly Magic Sight, his visual field expanded many times, allowing him to see everything clearly.
TThrough the window of his tower, he could see clearly the lines on the wings of a mosquito flying hundreds of kilometers away.
He could even see every movement of the air currents.
He marveled inwardly. He could not help but recall the scene where his sword Qi had been shattered by one fist attack from Xue Chan. Xue Chan must have spotted a weakness in his sword Qi to have been able to destroy it with such ease.
He exclaimed to himself that Ghostly Magic Sight was quite a powerful Martial Soul, though it was not as good as his Devouring Martial Soul.
It could not increase his combat power but it had powerful abilities, including the ability to construct dreamland and increase his eyesight.
A few minutes later, he retracted it with a satisfied smile.
He prepared to increase his cultivation.
He might have been on the road for a while, but he had not neglected to refine his Dark Force. It was stable enough to increase his cultivation to the next level.
He entered the Divine Map.
In the courtyard, Su Mo, Li Feng, and Hong Qingxuan stood in a circle.
He would certainly not neglect his friends when it came to increasing their cultivation.
A large number of Spiritual Stones appeared. They piled up like a mountain. Some of them were even placed outside the courtyard.
They were all Medium Spiritual Stones. Su Mo had taken out 300 million.
“Explode!” he shouted.
The moment his Devouring Martial Soul was unleashed, extremely thick Spiritual Qi began to form.
Immediately the three began to absorb Spiritual Qi like crazy.
Thanks to his Devouring Martial Soul, Su Mo absorbed Spiritual Qi more than ten times faster than Hong Qingxuan. On the other hand, the amount of Spiritual Qi he required to break through was many times more.
Time trickled by. They were completely immersed in increasing their cultivation.
After 15 minutes, Li Feng broke through. His physical strength was now as strong as that of a Lv 6 True Darkness Realm martial artist.
Li Feng only cultivated physical strength, so he did not have to worry about things like an unstable foundation or lack of cultivation improvement.
Li Feng had been absorbing Spiritual Stones in Divine Map for a long time, so he was already not too far from breaking through.
After another hour, Su Mo also broke through, reaching Lv 3 True Darkness Realm.
Ten minutes later, Hong Qingxuan also successfully advanced to Lv 3 True Darkness Realm.
Not much Spiritual Qi remained, so Su Mo took out another 300 million Medium Spiritual Stones.
He began to practice the Archean Dragonesque Elephant Skill.
His physical strength started to sky-rocket.
An hour later, everything returned to normal in the courtyard and they had absorbed all the Spiritual Qi.
Su Mo’s physical strength was now comparable to a Lv 5 True Darkness Realm martial artist. Li Feng and Hong Qingxuan had not broken through again, but they were not far off either!
“Are you guys going to stay here and cultivate, or would you prefer to head outside?” Su Mo asked them after they had stopped cultivating.
“I’d like to go out. I’ll look for you in a few days!” Hong Qingxuan said.
“Me too!” Li Feng also responded.
Su Mo nodded and they agreed on a time. They would meet to improve their cultivations again in ten days.
Su Mo sent them out of the Divine Map.
The two returned to Dark Sky Peak and Sky-caging Peak.
After they left, Su Mo immersed himself in cultivation once again. The higher his cultivation got, the sooner he would be able to set off for the Central Continent. He could hardly wait.
Three days flew by.
On this day, Towering Sky Peak had livened up.
The Tenth Senior Brother—Tian Chen, the Ninth Senior Brother—Yun Fei, the Eighth Senior Brother—Feng Shaoyu, the Seventh Senior Sister—Hua Suiyu, and the Fifth Senior Brother—Jun Wuxi had all returned.
They were chatting in the square where every so often joyful laughter could be heard.
Su Mo stopped cultivating and opened his eyes.
He left his tower and headed for the square.
With a glance, Su Mo found that all of them had made great strides in their cultivations. The Seventh Senior Sister had reached Lv 1 True Darkness Realm, and Jun Wuxi was now at Lv 6 True Darkness Realm.
“11th Junior Brother!”
They called out to Su Mo when they spotted him.
“Congratulations on making great strides in your cultivation!” Su Mo said with a broad smile on his face.
“11th Junior Brother, congratulations on making the List of Top 1,000 Talents in the East Continent!”
Feng Shaoyu, Yun Fei, and Tian Chen were all beaming because Su Mo was now very famous throughout the East Continent.
However, Hua Suiyu and Jun Wuxi stared at him in astonishment, their eyes widening.
After a while, Jun Wuxi asked in shock, “Su Mo, have you reached Lv 3 True Darkness Realm?”
Feng Shaoyu, Yun Fei, and Tian Chen were stunned by his words.
Lv 3 True Darkness Realm?
They were no longer able to discern his cultivation, so in their eyes, based on his talent, he should have been at Lv 1 True Darkness Realm. Now, they all looked dazed.
Now hearing Jun Wuxi’s words, they were overcome with shame.
Comparisons were odious!
They were also called talented geniuses. How was the gap between them so big?
Tian Chen didn’t look so surprised. After all, he knew how Su Mo cultivated. But it was unbelievable to the other four!
They did not envy Su Mo. They just felt that they were useless in comparison to him!
