Chapter 706: Give Up
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo’s final decision was to give up on one Spiritual Spiral!
He did not wish to be controlled by others, nor lose his freedom. This left him feeling extremely depressed.
Huangfu Qing definitely did not treat him as his disciple. Why would he treat him that way otherwise!
If he didn’t get rid of this Qi strength, it was likely that he would forever remain under Huangfu Qing’s control, never to regain his freedom again!
Therefore, no matter what, Su Mo had to get rid of this, even if it meant destroying one of his spiritual spirals!
This was the only method he could think of!
An average martial artist would not be able to do so, because destroying one’s spiritual spiral meant voluntarily destroying one’s cultivation.
Su Mo was different since he had nine spiritual spirals. Giving up on one was not impossible.
There might be a dip in his combat strength if he gave up one spiritual spiral, but he could only resort to this method if he wanted to escape Huangfu Qing’s control!
Su Mo took a deep breath, shut his eyes and focused his energies on his elixir field.
Slowly, and with control, he gradually destroyed the spiritual spiral with Huangfu Qing’s Qi strength.
Su Mo acted with extreme caution, because any mistake would lead to him self-destructing.
Su Mo collected the Dark Force within that spiritual spiral and distributed it across the rest of his spiritual spirals.
The nature of the Dark Force across all nine spiritual spirals were exactly the same, so there would be no rejection.
After all the Dark Force had been extracted from his spiritual spiral, his spiritual spiral started to shake violently as it slowly expanded outward under Su Mo’s control.
Spiritual Spirals were made up of highly concentrated Dark Force, so it scattered as it expanded and flowed out of Su Mo’s meridians.
As the Spiritual Spirals scattered, it became smaller and smaller until it was just one third of its original size.
“Destroy!” Su Mo Mo roared and the severely weakened spiritual spiral suddenly broke apart and was completely destroyed.
The destroyed spiritual spiral turned into boundless Dark Force that flowed out of his meridians under his control.
Su Mo continued to keep a close eye on Huangfu Qing’s Qi strength and saw the Qi strength flowing into his meridians together with the boundless Dark Force.
Then, that wisp of Qi strength shot out of Su Mo’s fingers and into the air.
Su Mocontinued to stare at the Qi strength and watched as it gradually dissipated after floating the air for about five breaths until there was nothing left.
Su Mo let out a sigh of relief. He finally relaxed after managing to rid himself of the Qi strength.
“Huangfu Qing, for all your planning, you didn’t think that I could have nine spiritual spirals!” Su Mo beamed. The next moment, he was consumed by a feeling of weakness.
The effects of the Three Secret Techniques had worn off and he was now experiencing the side effects.
“I shouldn’t spend too much time here. I need to leave East Continent and make my way to Central Continent!” Su Mo sighed. He frowned as he murmured, “I wonder if Hong Qingxuan managed to escape?”
He remembered Hong Qingxuan had fled with Qian Xunyue, but Zuoqiu Ting had been hot on their tail.
Su Mo shook his head after a while. There was no use worrying after Hong Qingxuan’s safety at this point in time. He could only hope that Qian Xunyue was powerful enough to escape with Hong Qingxuan.
He left the Divine Map’s Space and rushed out of the forest toward Celestialspirit Sect.
He wanted to see if Li Feng was still within Celestialspirit Sect before he left, or maybe even Wu Sheng, whom he hadn’t seen in a while.
Su Mo wasn’t certain if Celestialspirit Sect had been attacked, but since he was about to leave, he could not abandon Li Feng.
Several powerful martial artists were engaged in a fierce battle in this Space, and each strike from them carried an immense, earth-shattering power.
One of them was Huangfu Qing. He had surrounded Topmost Palace Deputy Palace Master, Tai Shen, together with two experts from Corpse Hall.
Gong Lin and SIkong Yan were no longer by Tai Shen’s side, their fate unknown!
Tai Shen had already sustained serious injuries under the continuous attack from Huangfu Qing and his two comrades. He could only defend, but could no longer attack. It was obvious that he wouldn’t be able to hold out much longer.
“Tai Shen, pledge allegiance to us or die. Which path would you choose?” Huangfu Qing shouted. As a powerful expert, if Tai Shen agreed to become one of them, he would play a big role in Cold-blood Hall’s quest to conquer East Continent.
This was the reason why Huangfu Qing asked again, hoping Tai Shen would pledge his allegiance.
All of a sudden, his face froze and his brows knitted together.
“Su Mo?” Huangfu Qing said in surprise. He had sensed the Qi strength he left within Su Mo’s body disappear!
That Qi strength contained a shred of his will, and had embedded itself within Su Mo’s spiritual spiral. This meant that he could always tell where Su Mo was. Even if he was thousands of kilometers away, Su Mo would not be able to hide from him.
He could even kill Su Mo with that Qi strength if he so wished.
Now, he could no longer sense that Qi strength, which meant that it had already been destroyed!
“What happened? Does Su Mo have an expert helping him?” Huangfu Qing was puzzled. He knew his own Qi strength extremely well and also knew that it would be very difficult for even a Lv 9 Martial King Realm expert to destroy it, let alone Su Mo at just True Darkness Realm.
Therefore, his first guess was that Su Mo had received help from an expert.
Su Mo would not have been able to destroy that Qi strength otherwise.
“Huangfu Qing, I will never surrender to you even if I have to die!” Tai Shen shouted angrily.
Huangfu Qing stopped trying to figure it out. He could deal with Su Mo later; his most pressing issue right now was Tai Shen.
“Tai Shen, since you’re so eager to die, I’ll grant your wish!” Huangfu Qing said. His body suddenly glowed golden, and layers of dragon scales covered his body. The shadow of a gigantic Archean Dragonesque Elephant appeared from his body.
The lifelike shadow of the Archean Dragonesque Elephant lifted its head and roared. Its strong dragon power reverbed for miles.
“Die!” Huangfu Qing charged at Tai Shen.
Although the Talents’ Grand Gathering was held within Dark Domain, it was still quite a distance away from Celestialspirit Sect.
What took only an hour when he travelled with Huangfu Qing, now took Su Mo two days before he finally approached Celestialspirit Sect.
Su Mo could already hear the sounds of fights and explosions as he drew nearer to Celestialspirit Sect.
“Cold-blood Hall has attacked Celestialspirit Sect!” Su Mo’s heart sank.
Cold-blood Hall had already planned this all out beforehand.
Su Mo stopped and quickly weighed his options. It would be extremely dangerous for him to head back now.
Furthermore, he wasn’t sure if Huangfu Qing had returned, nor did he know how strong Cold-blood Hall was. He could die if he brashly went back to Celestialspirit Sect!
However, if he left just like that without Li Feng, it would weigh heavily on his conscience!
