Chapter 694: Extremely Upset
The current situation shocked everyone.
Everyone had thought that Su Mo was going to lose, but he had been so fierce that he hadn’t given Gong Lin any chance to fight back.
After a short while, chaotic chatter ran through the entire arena.
“How could this be?”
“Su Mo spotted Gong Lin’s weakness! Close combat is Gong Lin’s fatal flaw! ”
“Gong Lin didn’t expect Su Mo to have the Spiritual Sword. Otherwise, at his speed, Martial King Realm usually didn’t allow any challenger the ability to get close to him! ”
“Now Gong Lin is in danger. He doesn’t have any chance to use his magical archery! ”
Everyone was showing a range of emotion. Gong Lin’s strength was so much stronger than Su Mo’s, but he was unexpectantly being beaten by Su Mo. This was really rare.
Yun Feiyang witnessed the whole fight. His face kept twitching. Obviously, Su Mo’s strength was weaker than his, but the situation was completely alien to his previous experience.
I didn’t know that someone could fight like that!
Yun Feiyang was speechless and could not help but secretly scold himself for his stupidity. He was only thinking about fighting Gong Lin in a normal situation but had not considered his own flaws.
However, he did not have the Spiritual Sword, so although his speed was not that slow, it would still be difficult to get close to Gong Lin.
Therefore, he would not gain the upper hand if he used Su Mo’s tactics.
Seeing Gong Lin and Su Mo flying farther away until they were almost beyond sight, many young talents flew out of the pavilion to follow the two.
As for the older experts, they did not move.
” Vice Palace Master Tai Shen, it seems that my little disciple is slightly better than yours! ” Huangfu Qing said, smiling slightly while looking at Tai Shen.
“Hum! The winner is not certain yet!”
Tai Shen snorted coldly after hearing Huangfu’s words. He was upset, as he had not expected this kind of situation.
Of course, he knew of Gong Lin’s weakness, but Gong Lin’s speed was usually fast enough to make up for this weakness. General martial artists from the same rank, even weaker Lv 1 Martial King Realm martial artists, could not easily get close to Gong Lin.
Unfortunately, Su Mo happened to have the Spiritual Sword. It was becoming a real nemesis for Gong Lin!
Many experts could not help but smile helplessly. If Gong Lin lost this time, it was really destiny.
Thousands of miles away, high up in the air:
Su Mo was strict with himself in remaining in front of Gong Lin, his sword in his hand like a poisonous snake’s tongue. Each attack was fierce, and his swordsmanship continued to become more and more tricky to handle and sharp.
Whew! Whew! Whew!
Sword radiances were flashing, covering Gong Lin’s head, chest, neck, and lower abdomen.
Su Mo attacked Gong Lin’s vital parts mainly.
Clang! Clang! Clang!
Gong Lin was also extraordinarily skillful. He kept waving his big bow in his hand, blocking all of Su Mo’s attacks.
“Damn it!” Gong Lin almost blew up with anger. He was obviously stronger than Su Mo, but he could not exert all his strength. This made him extremely upset.
If he could distance himself from Su Mo, he only needed to simultaneously shoot five arrows at once to finish Su Mo.
Now, he had already reached his top speed, but he still could not get rid of Su Mo.
” Ha ha! 7th on the List of Top 1,000 Talents? Gong Lin, you are such a loser! ” Su Mo burst out laughing; his attack became more violent. The longsword turned into an illusion, allowing him to now strike with dozens of swords in almost one blink of an eye.
“Bastard! I dare you to distance yourself from me and fight me that way!” Gong Lin roared while resisting Su Mo’s attack.
“Aren’t I already doing that?” Su Mo sneered and said, ” Your cultivation is higher than mine by 5 levels, and yet you are still not a match for me. You are such a loser, just admit it! ”
Su Mo deliberately said this to irritate Gong Lin in order to make his adversary reveal his flaw.
What deserved to be mentioned was that Gong Lin’s strength was surely very strong. Even if he could not shoot an arrow, it would still be difficult for Su Mo to defeat him swiftly.
Su Mo did not have much time left. After 20 breaths’ time, his strength would decrease dramatically. If that happened, Gong Lin might be able to reverse the situation.
“Bastard! I’ll kill you!” Gong Lin immediately got mad after hearing what Su Mo had said. He had been a genius since he was a child and had never been called “a loser” before. Now his eyes were spouting flames, his face was flushed red, and even his moves were cluttered up.
“Haha!” Su Mo laughed, while his attacks became fiercer and more violent.
The sharp, cold sword radiance flashed by, pointing directly at Gong Lin’s heart.
“Get lost!” Gong Lin yelled. He waved his bow to block Su Mo’s sword.
Just before the big bow touched the sword radiance, the sword suddenly changed direction to attack Gong Lin’s thigh at an incomparable speed.
“Oh no!” Gong Lin was frightened, but it was too late for him to protect his thigh. In an instant, he could only try his best to twist his lower body.
The sword radiance flashed by and released a stream of blood.
It tore open the flesh on Gong Lin’s thigh, leaving a half-foot-long wound.
Gong Lin could not help but grunt in pain.
However, in the next moment, the sword radiance suddenly turned and shot for Gong Lin’s face with no hesitation.
Gong Lin was so angry that he almost spat blood. The feeling that he had the strength but could not use it almost drove him crazy.
Seeing the sword radiance coming, Gong Lin completely panicked and rushed to block it.
However, as the sword radiance approached Gong Lin’s face, it changed its direction suddenly, striking down.
Sword radiance flashed across Gonglin’s chest, tearing open his Body-protection Dark Force and leaving a deep visible scar. Blood started pouring out.
“Ah!” Gong Lin screamed and was quickly knocked back. Su Mo stepped on his Spiritual Sword, keeping a close distance with Gong Lin and continuing his attack.
“F*ck, I will kill you!”
Gong Lin went totally nuts. With a shadow flashing behind him, a huge golden bow emerged.
His Martial Soul was a silvery longbow, Rank 2 Heaven Class.
As he was using his Martial soul, his aura suddenly increased. Though he still could not shoot an arrow, it was becoming much easier for him to block Su Mo’s attack.
Each block shook Su Mo’s arms, making them numb. Su Mo’s attacks began to slow down.
“Using your Martial Soul? You are losing!” Su Mo sneered, proceeding to stab at Gong Lin’s chest with the Spiritual Sword.
Gong Lin tried to block again.
At this moment, Su Mo activated his Devouring Martial Soul immediately, and its devouring power shrouded Gong Lin instantly.
Although Su Mo’s Martial Soul had been promoted to the Heaven Class, and Gong Lin had been injured, his Devouring Martial Soul still had little influence on Gong Lin.
After all, Gong Lin’s cultivation exceeded Su Mo’s too much. Under the influence of the devouring power, Gong Lin’s body only quivered slightly. He was still able to suppress his Dark Force as well as the Qi and blood in his body.
However, at this moment, a dim light suddenly broke out from Su Mo’s eyes, directly stabbing into Gong Lin’s eyes.
Gong Lin could only feel a loud roar in his head. At once, his face seemed to glaze over. His movement also stopped suddenly.
A sound of a sharp sword piercing flesh and blood rang out. The Sky-crushing Sword stabbed directly into Gong Lin’s chest and pierced it instantly.
