Chapter 690: Letting You Off Easy
After hearing Su Mo’s words, Vice Palace Master Tai Shen sighed and nodded in defeat.
He was relieved that Su Mo would not kill Sikong Yan. Maybe letting Sikong Yan learn the hard way was the solution.
Sikong Yan completely disregarded his advice, so perhaps he would back down after a sound beating.
When Tai Shen sat back down, Su Mo smiled and landed in front of Sikong Yan.
“Sikong Yan, didn’t you want to teach me a lesson?” Su Mo said with a mocking smile. He now had free reign to mess with Sikong Yan.
Sikong Yan’s face was purple from anger, and he could not get out a response.
He had announced extremely confidently before that he was going to teach Su Mo a lesson, but he was the one being taught a lesson.
“I said I won’t admit defeat. If you want to kill me, go ahead!” he said forcefully after a while. He had accepted his fate.
Su Mo stared at Sikong Yan with hawkish eyes, sighed, and shook his head with resignation.
He had originally wanted to mess with Sikong Yan, but he was not getting the satisfaction from winning.
He was an upstanding man with a strong resolve, which really impressed Su Mo.
He was actually a perfect descendant for Firescorching Palace.
The only problem was that he would not yield to Su Mo. Perhaps there would be better descendants in Central Continent.
“Sikong Yan, I’m letting you off easy this time!” Su Mo said coldly, “I wanted to bestow Good Fortune upon you, but you ruined your chance. I hope you won’t regret it!”
Then, he turned around and returned to the Celestialspirit Sect disciples’ pavilion.
Sikong Yan was stunned. He had prepared himself to be destroyed, but Su Mo had walked away!
Why was Su Mo so kind to let him go?
Sikong Yan could not believe it!
He frowned at the thought that Su Mo had said again he would bring him Good Fortune.
Was there really Good Fortune for him?
Otherwise, Su Mo would not keep mentioning it!
After a while, Sikong Yan sighed and looked deeply at Su Mo, then he hurriedly returned to his pavilion
After both men left, everyone was still amazed that Su Mo had let Sikong Yan go!
He had lost a devastating fight not because he was not strong enough, but Su Mo’s unbelievable strength.
No one had expected Su Mo, at Lv 4 True Darkness Realm, to have such incredible combat strength!
Everyone guessed secretly that Su Mo would rank in the top 15 with his current strength, not to mention top 20!
The idea of someone at Lv 4 True Darkness Realm entering the top 20 of the List of Top 1,000 Talents was unthinkable.
However, that was the reality they were facing.
Sikong Yan returned to his pavilion dejectedly with his tail between his legs, having lost his previous gusto.
“Junior Brother Sikong, losses happen. You shouldn’t take it to heart!” Someone said lightly, “Both your and Topmost Palace’s shame will be avenged by me soon!”
Sikong Yan turned to look at Gong Lin and said with a sigh, “Senior Brother Gong, your worthy opponents are Jian Chen and Xue Tianqiong. I’ll take care of Su Mo in the future!”
Gong Lin remained expressionless and only shook his head lightly.
“In the future?
“Why should we wait to resolve something that we can resolve now?
“If we don’t defeat Su Mo, Topmost Palace will become a joke!”
All the disciples in Celestialspirit Sect’s pavilion looked at Su Mo with respect.
Even Luo Yan, who ranked fourth on the List of Top 1,000 Talents, looked at Su Mo in amazement.
His combat force was too terrifying!
Luo Yan recalled silently that he would not have been able to even take a single move of Su Mo’s when he himself was at Lv 4 True Darkness Realm.
He sighed. Talent differed greatly, even among geniuses!
“Not bad, Su Mo!”
Huangfu Qing smiled and looked at him in approval.
“Haha! You’re too kind, Master!” Su Mo sat on the sandalwood chair and smiled back.
“11th Junior Brother, I didn’t expect that your strength has exceeded mine by far!” Jun Wuxi looked conflicted. He felt like a piece of trash compared to Su Mo.
Su Mo saw Jun Wuxi’s dejected expression, sighed, and said, “Fifth Senior Brother, you have great talent as well. You won’t have much trouble reaching Martial King, or even Martial Royal Realm in the future!”
“I hope so!” Jun Wuxi took a deep breath and said.
He knew he was very talented as well, but only compared to regular martial artists. However, comparing himself to Su Mo would only disappoint him.
At this moment, another expert entered the arena.
A tall young man in a violet gold robe strode onto the platform.
He looked around the arena and set his gaze on the Ninth Heaven Sect.
“Yun Feiyang, come and fight!” he said in a deep voice.
The arena was silent for a few moments, and the crowd burst into an uproar.
“Haha! Someone is finally challenging a martial artist in the top ten!”
“A real peak battle is about to begin!”
“Chen Yan is 14th on the List of Top 1,000 Talents, so he’s qualified to challenge Yun Feiyang!”
“I wonder how powerful the top ten geniuses are!”
Everyone chatted over each other noisily.
Su Mo was also interested to see how powerful the top ten geniuses were.
Although he had seen An Nuan fight, he had only seen one move, and he did not know details.
However, after fighting with Sikong Yan, Su Mo estimated that he would have trouble fighting top ten geniuses.
They were capable of breaking through space, a skill that he lacked.
If he could reach Lv 5 True Darkness Realm, he would be able to take on the top ten.
However, Su Mo did not plan on fighting again. He did not want to crush everyone, and he knew he could not.
Therefore, he had beat everyone he had a grudge against. No one would challenge him again.
Yun Feiyang wore a white robe and looked extremely handsome.
As soon as Chen Yan, the tall young man, finished speaking, Yun Feiyang landed on the platform.
The entire arena quieted down, and everyone stared at the two men. One of them was ninth on the List of Top 1,000 Talents, and another was fourteenth.
Could Chen Yan hold his own against Yun Feiyang?
Everyone guessed that the top ten of the List of Top 1,000 Talents had the strength of Martial Kings.
