Chapter 693: Fatal Weakness
When people heard Gong Lin words, they all froze.
Gong Lin was not going to challenge Luo Yan, but Su Mo!
Nobody had expected that. After all, with Gong Lin’s strength, he was supposed to request a fight against those who ranked higher than him on the List of Top 1,000 Talents.
Su Mo was also shocked. It had never occurred to him that Gong Lin would choose him.
Soon, he realized that Gong Lin seemed to want to seek revenge on him for Sikong Yan.
After a short while, Su Mo shook his head and said, ” You have cultivation at Lv 9 True Darkness Realm. Shame on you for challenging me! ”
Su Mo didn’t plan to accept the challenge. He knew himself enough that he was sure his strength was not as strong as Gong Lin’s. After all, the gap between their cultivations was too big.
Knowing this, he would be a fool to accept a challenge.
Everyone understood what Su Mo meant. It seemed that Su Mo would not accept the challenge!
Even though Su Mo had amazing strength, compared with Gong Lin, there was still some way to go. Knowing that winning was impossible, how could he accept the challenge?
” Hum! Are you scared? ” Gong Lin sneered and said, ” If you are really afraid, just quietly be a coward. ”
Gong Lin smiled scornfully, as if he were a king despising Su Mo.
Su Mo’s face darkened when he heard this. He knew Gong Lin was provoking him into accepting the challenge.
In fact, it could not work on him!
Although his own strength was weaker, he still had the Three Secret Techniques. It would not be difficult to defeat Gong Lin!
Plus, Gong Lin had a fatal weakness. Maybe he could defeat Gong Lin without using the Three Secret Techniques.
“Gong Lin, if that’s what you want, I’m in!” Su Mo said. He took a deep breath and stood up.
” 11th Junior Brother, don’t go. You are no match for him! ” Jun Wuxi quickly yelled as soon as Su Mo stood up.
Because Jun Wuxi had been training outside for nearly a year, he didn’t know Su Mo had the Three Secret Techniques.
Other disciples of the Celestialspirit Sect were also staring at Su Mo with astonishment.
Su Mo actually was accepting the challenge!
Knowing that it was impossible to win, he was still accepting the challenge. Su Mo couldn’t stand being goaded like that!
Several peak masters also had doubts about Su Mo. Su Mo was going to suffer if he chose to fight.
Qian Xunyue glanced at Su Mo with her beautiful eyes. She shook her head secretly. Su Mo’s temperament was good, but he did not know how to forbare. This was one of his greatest flaws.
Huangfu Qing was expressionless as if he wasn’t worried about Su Mo at all.
“Fifth Senior Brother, don’t worry about it. I have got this!” Su Mo said lightly. After saying this, his body moved, flying up into the sky. In a flash, he came in front of Gong Lin and stood a hundred feet away.
The other snobbish people saw that Su Mo had accepted the challenge. Many of them shook their heads in silence.
“Even Yun Feiyang can’t compete with Gong Lin, Su Mo will lose for sure. ”
“Obviously, Gong Lin is going to take up the cudgel for Sikong Yan. He is about to beat Su Mo up badly! ”
” I bet Su Mo won’t stand up to even two arrows! ”
People were discussing in a low voice. Everyone thought Su Mo would lose without a doubt.
Up in the air, Gong Lin cracked a smile when he saw Su Mo take the challenge. Then he said, ” Su Mo, you will be ten times worse than Junior Brother Sikong! ”
“Will I? Are you so sure? ” Su Mo shrugged his shoulders as if the comments meant nothing.
“Relax, I will not kill you. However, wounds and pain are inevitable! ” Gonglin said, ignoring Su Mo’s questions.
“Enough talk, let’s start! ” Su Mo roared coldly. He was the first to strike.
Gong Lin’s weapon was bow and arrow, a ranged weapon. Su Mo would not be as silly as Yun Feiyang, waiting for the opponent to pull away and shoot arrows indiscriminately.
The properties of wood and fire as well as the properties of metal and earth inside his body fused almost instantly.
“Cut!” Sword radiance flashed by. A huge three-colored sword radiance was chopping down toward Gong Lin.
When Su Mo came onto the stage, he deliberately drew closer to Gong Lin until only a hundred feet divided the two.
A hundred feet was completely within the scope of Su Mo’s sword radiance.
It was fast, accurate, and powerful.
In almost half a blink of an eye, the sword radiance had already reached Gong Lin’s forehead.
“You’re tired of living!” Gong Lin shouted in haste. He hadn’t expected Su Mo would attack so suddenly. In this emergency situation, he didn’t have time to release his arrow, so he hastily raised the big bow in his hand, forming a block on the top of his head.
The sword radiance cut down on the big bow. With a loud blast, Gong Lin was pushed back more than ten feet
Gong Lin retreated quickly to keep his distance from Su Mo.
For a bow and arrow attack, close combat was a fatal weakness. Attacks could only be made at a good distance.
What deserved to be mentioned was that Gong Lin’s retreating speed was very fast, and it was much faster than a general Lv 9 Ture Darkness Realm martial artist.
Being able to move fast was also a required skill for a formidable archer. Otherwise, it would be difficult to launch a long-distance attack.
Quick as lightning, Gong Lin knocked back. His shape left residual shadows in the air. His speed was extremely fast.
However, Gong Lin’s expression changed suddenly, as Su Mo’s shape became rapidly enlarged in his eyes. Su Mo had already charged in order to reach his location.
“Gong Lin, you are too slow!” Su Mo said. He stepped on the Spiritual Sword and rode with it. With a speed resembling wind and lightning, he rushed to Gong Lin’s front in a split second.
” Cut! ” Su Mo yelled. His body was covered with a golden gleam, and Dark Force gushed inside his body. The Sky-crushing Sword’s three-colored sword ray was shining brightly and dazzlingly.
With a wave of his arm, sword radiance cut through the air and brutally heading toward Gong Lin’s head.
Though Su Mo’s attack failed to shatter the space, the space was full of cracks where the sword radiance had passed.
Obviously, his attack was also close to the point of breaking the space.
“How could it be?” Gong Lin yelled with anger. He didn’t expect that Su Mo had the Spiritual Sword, and the sword enabled Su Mo to move swiftly.
Instantly, Gong Lin raised his big bow to block again.
There was a loud noise as sparks flew all over the area. Gong Lin’s body shook as he knocked back at a faster speed.
Su Mo also experienced a tremendous counterforce. His body paused for a second, but the next moment, the Spiritual Sword charged at a faster speed.
Su Mo had always tried to remain no more than five feet away from his enemy. With the Spiritual Sword’s speed, there was no way that Gong Lin could distance himself from Su Mo.
With such a close distance, Gong Lin could not open his bow at all. Su Mo’s attack had already arrived before his Dark Force arrows were even formed.
A cold light flashed by. The Sky-crushing Sword stabbed violently, aiming at Gong Lin’s lower abdomen.
Su Mo changed his tactics. It would be very difficult for him to defeat Gong Lin if he struck with force. After all, Gong Lin was a Lv 9 True Darkness Realm martial artist who possessed great strength and could easily block his attack.
Therefore, Su Mo would defeat his adversary by means of his sword speed.
It would be great if he could defeat Gong Lin without using the Three Secret Techniques.
For Su Mo, the Three Secret Techniques were not meant to be used if it wasn’t necessary. After all, they had side effects.
Gong Lin blocked Su Mo’s sword again.
Then, the Sky-crushing Sword in Su Mo’s hand turned into an illusion and attacked Gong Lin’s vital parts frantically.
Whew! Whew! Whew!
Clang! Clang! Clang!
The thunder continued, and both of their weapons turned into illusions.
Su Mo attacked madly. Sword radiance was like mercury pouring out. Sword shadows were countless. Gong Lin tried his best to resist.
Gong Lin was still rapidly knocking back, while Su Mo was sticking to him like nougat. They flew out hundreds of miles in a blink of an eye, falling outside the ancient city.
Everyone below was shocked!
What was going on?
Had Su Mo prevailed over Gong Lin?
