Chapter 685: Someone’s About to Get Tortured
Obviously, Lei Peng was not a duck.
“Roar!” as the three rays of sword Qi approaching, Lei Peng let out a loud roar.
The thunder-property Dark Force swirled around him and surged into his clenched fists.
Immediately, thunder and lightning flashed from his fists and a crackling explosion sounded. It was like two large balls of thunder filled with the explosive energy.
Lei Peng punched out hard at the three rays of sword Qi.
Two bolts of lightning struck out with dazzling thunder radiance and flew across the sky. They collided heavily against the three rays of four-colored sword Qi.
Constant explosions sounded. The thunder fist radiance was powerful but it was still not able to withstand the piercing edge of the four-colored sword Qi. It shattered in an instant.
The shattered thunder fist radiance dispersed into tiny electric snakes that slithered across the sky, lightning trailing in its wake.
After destroying the fist radiance, the three rays of four-colored sword Qi continued its destructive trajectory and swiftly drew close to Lei Peng.
“No!” Lei Peng roared and his whole body froze. He felt a chill run down his spine as he felt death drawing near.
Lei Peng was full of regret for being reckless. He would never imagined that Su Mo was so powerful, but it was now too late for regrets.
He could only do his utmost to block Su Mo’s blow.
Dark force swirled crazily around him and boundless thunder property Dark Force formed a gigantic ball of thunder that enveloped him within. It was the perfect defense.
The next breath!
Three rays of four-colored sword Qi slammed heavily against the ball of thunder.
The sharp, piercing four-colored sword Qi shattered everything in sight, and the ball of thunder was simply just not able to withstand its power, and then it busted open in an instant. The sword Qi pierced right through the ball of thunder.
Slice! Slice! Slice!
Blood splattered everywhere and was soon destroyed by the dispersing thunderbolt.
After a while, both the sword Qi and thunderbolt disappeared and only a few pieces of Lei Peng’s body remained on the ground.
Su Mo had already returned to his pavilion and sat down calmly.
To him, killing Lei Peng in one move was just too simple. He didn’t even need to wait for the result.
Everyone else was unable to remain calm as they stared dumbfounded at whatever remained of Lei Peng, in stark contrast to the calm Su Mo.
Lei Peng, ranked 203rd on the List of 1,000 Talents had been instantly killed in one move!
Was this Su Mo’s true strength?
Everyone was in absolute shock. Su Mo was only of Lv 4 True Darkness Realm cultivation but he had managed to kill Lei Peng so easily. No one else would be able to match his incredible combat skill when it came to fighting above his level.
The rumors were true after all and he truly lived up to his title as a Thousand-year Genius. If his cultivation increased by another two or three levels, his strength would be on par with the top-ranked on the List.
The faces of those from Thunder Mountain turned black, all angered by the fact that their top talent on the List had been killed on the spot.
However, Lei Peng had not only voluntarily entered into to a fight to the death battle with Su Mo, he had been the one to propose this. Now that he had been killed, they couldn’t do anything!
Everyone started to sit up and take notice of Su Mo. They all thought his strength was on par with the top 150 on the List.
Huangfu Qing remained expressionless. He only gave a slight nod of his head, so no one knew how he felt.
Qian Xunyue glanced at Su Mo and a look of resignation flashed across her eyes. No wonder Hong Qingxuan was so crazy over him, she had underestimated his abilities.
The remaining pieces of Lei Peng’s body were taken away by those from Thunder Mountain, and then the battles continued.
Many experts continued to step forward to battle, a large number of them ranked among the top 200 on the List, so the intensity of the battles ramped up.
This greatly excited the crowd. Those ranked among the top 200 were mostly of a half step to Martial King cultivation.
After one of the battles had come to an end, a young man clad in a crimson robe from Holy Teal Dragon Sect flew onto the square.
“Sikong Yan, shall we?” he issued a direct challenge to Sikong Yan.
The crowd was surprised. A top 50 talent from the List had finally stepped forward.
This young man clad in crimson was Qi Yanshan and ranked 50th on the List of Top 1,000 talents. Sikong Yan was ranked 48th on the same List.
No one was surprised to see who Qi Yanshan had chosen to challenge, since both martial artists cultivated mighty fire property techniques. So naturally, they would want to compete to see who was better.
However, since Sikong Yan was born with a fire property spiritual build, he had incredible combat strength in spite just being of Lv 7 True Darkness Realm cultivation.
Qi Yanshan might be of Lv 8 True Darkness Realm cultivation but it would be immensely difficult for him to defeat Sikong Yan.
Sikong Yan sat boldly on an ebony chair. His lips curved into a smile when he heard Qi Yanshan’s challenge. “Very well. It’s about time to exercise a bit. After I’m done with you, someone else is about to get tortured!” he said.
He glanced at Su Mo then flew out and landed in the square.
Su Mo smiled as he looked at Sikong Yan. He had caught Sikong Yan’s glance.
“Was that a challenge?” Su Mo thought scornfully. Sikong Yan, Sikong Yan, here I am trying to be your benefactor, but you wish to torture me?
If you refuse to acknowledge the vast difference in our strength, I will torture you till your mother wouldn’t be able to recognize you!
In the square, Sikong Yan looked at Qi Yanshan with a smile and said, “Qi Yanshan, show me all you got!”
Sikong Yan spoke so casually and condescendingly, it was obvious he didn’t take Qi Yanshan seriously.
“Sikong Yan, don’t be too sure of yourself!” Qi Yanshan was irritated by Sikong Yan’s attitude.
He did not underestimate Sikong Yan’s strength and knew that his opponent could afford to be so arrogant because of his fire property spiritual build which meant that he was born to be a genius in mastering fire property martial arts techniques.
“Cut the crap and make your move!” Sikong Yan shouted impatiently.
Qi Yanshan took a deep breath and slowly calmed himself down. He flipped his hand and a flaming red spear appeared.
The long spear vibrated and many fiery snakes appeared from Qi Yanshan’s body, heading toward that fiery red long spear.
The fiery long spear instantly transformed into a 33-meter-long fiery column which was so hot that it melted the flooring of the square.
An overwhelming wave of heat with Qi Yanshan in the center of it rolled out in all directions.
The temperature of the square instantly shot up.
“Die!” Qi Yanshan roared and pierced his spear straight at Sikong Yan.
A lifelike 33-meter-long fire dragon flew out from the spear and waves of scorching heat could be felt from it. Everywhere it passed evaporated into nothingness and even distorted the Plane.
The fire dragon moved extremely quickly and pounced at Sikong Yan, its teeth bared and claws outstretched.
This blow was incredibly mighty. An average Lv 7, 8 True Darkness Realm martial artist would not even be able to withstand the heat, let alone attempt to block it.
Sikong Yan remained calm as the fire dragon approached him and scoffed, “This is child’s play!”
