Chapter 822: Killing the First Supreme Talent
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
The remaining six in the group mulled over Sang Tian’s words.
They had all exchanged blows with each other earlier in a dispute for some treasures. Therefore, each of them bore some form of enmity toward the other.
Nonetheless, if they stood to gain enough for them to toss aside their enmity fornow, they could work together as short-term allies.
“Sang Tian, I’ll work with you!” a thin elder man with a sinister face said.
Formation forbiddance had been installed all across this mansion, so they had all been injuried at various points in time by these formations.
This humongous tower was probably fraught with danger on the inside too. Therefore, they would stand a bigger chance emerging alive only if they worked together, which was why the thin elderly man agreed to Sang Tian’s proposal.
“Sang Tian, let’s battle after we’re done with this tower!” a burly young man said coldly.
This young man was at least three meters tall and he wore a shirt made out of demonic beast pelt. His eyes shone with a savage glow and his entire body bulged with muscles. Not just that, hair covered his neck and his arms, and he gave off the vibe of a barbarian.
This man was the Demon King of a tribe of Demons, his strength was comparable to Sang Tian.
They had exchanged blows earlier while vying for a treasure, but he had lost to Sang Tian.
“After we have explored this tower together, we shall battle to determine who will be the owner of the treasures within!”
A remaining few people in the group voiced their agreement to Sang Tian’s proposal.
“Very well!” Sang Tian’s lips curled into a smile. “I’ll go check if there is danger lurking at the entrance. We’ll then hunt for treasures as a group!”
Sang Tian walked up to the entrance and the Dark Force in his hand surged as he prepared to probe to see if there was a formation here.
At this moment, something happened. With a dazzling flash, two figures walked out from that tower door.
Sang Tian and the remaining six were caught by surprise and stared at the two figures.
“You!” Sang Tian shouted as he caught sight of a familiar face. He looked straight at one of them, his eyes filled with killing desire.
Those two figures were none other than Su Mo and Wenren Tiandu.
Su Mo was also slightly surprised. He had not expected Sang Tian to be outside this tower.
“What treasures have you obtained from the tower?” asked a burly young demon coldly, his eyes filled with bloodthirst.
“Hand over your treasures and I’ll spare you both!”
“How dare you two True Darkness Realm losers to come all the way here in search of treasure! You don’t know your limits at all!”
“Hand over all that you’ve got!”
The rest of the group came forward and surrounded them both.
Since Su Mo and Wenren Tiandu emerged unscathed from the tower, the group assumed that they must have obtained some treasures from within.
“Ha ha!” Sang Tian laughed coldly, stared straight at Su Mo and said, “Young punk, there’s no way you can escape this time. I will make sure you die a horrible death!”
A long saber then appeared in Sang Tian’s hand with a flash of white light.
Su Mo looked at the group in disdain. How dare this group of people even try to rob him?
He now had cultivated 23 Spiritual Spirals, causing his strength to leap by close to ten times. His current state of weakness led him to be unable to display his peak combat strength, but he did not fear this group.
“Sang Tian, you shall be the first Supreme Talent I kill!” Su Mo said with a smile.
He still remembered Sang Tians’s earlier attempt to kill him, so there was no way Su Mo would let this matter slide. Now that his strength had surged, it was time to kill this person once and for all.
Su Mo had not killed those on the List of 10,000 Talents before. He had not made to kill Leng Fan yet either.
Everyone was shocked and stared at Su Mo in disbelief with their eyes wide.
How did a Peak Lv 9 True Darkness Realm martial artist have the audacity to say such a thing. He must have a screw loose in his head!
Sang Tian was similarly surprised before he burst into laughter.
“Ha ha ha!” Sang Tian laughed heartily. He then sized Su Mo up once again and when he clocked Su Mo’s fatigued appearance, he sneered. “Young punk, you must have been so seriously injured in the tower that you can’t think properly right now!”
“Sang Tian, cut the crap. I’ll kill you in three moves!” Su Mo shook his head, his face hardening.
The Sky-crushing Sword then appeared in his hand and the property Dark Forces within his 23 Spiritual Spirals immediately fused together.
“Kill me in three moves?”
Sang Tian’s face turned pale and he shouted angrily, “How dare a True Darkness Realm loser like you even have the audacity to say such things. I’d like to see how you’re going to achieve it!”
Sang Tian grew steadily incensed by Su Mo’s insolence, and was now consumed with rage.
“Sang Tian, I’ll let you handle these two punks. We will settle who gets to take the treasures on them later!” said the thin elderly man with a laugh.
“Ha ha. I’m sure these two had found some treasure!”
The rest of the group beamed. Sang Tian would easily be able to kill these two people.
What they would now need to deal with was how to split the treasures these two had after Sang Tian killed them. A fierce battle would definitely follow after those two were dead.
Then, they all retreated, giving Su Mo and Sang Tian the space they needed to battle.
“Brother Wenren, please step back!” Su Mo mentioned to Wenren Tiandu with a wave of his hand.
Wenren Tiandu remained expressionless, but surprise was reflected in his eyes as he glanced at Su Mo.
Wenren Tiandu could not believe Su Mo’s assertion that he could kill Sang Tian in three moves. To him, that was an impossible task!
He had previously exchanged blows with Su Mo, so he knew that Su Mo was only slightly stronger than him while his secret skill was in effect.
Now, without his secret skill to boost his strength, how was Su Mo going to battle Sang Tian?
Moreover, as the top 5,000 on the List of 10,000 Talents, Sang Tian was a Supreme Talent who possessed terrifying strength. Even if Su Mo’s strength was boosted by the effects of his secret skill, he would not be Sang Tian’s match, let alone now when he was consumed by the after-effects of using it.
Wenren Tiandu did not probe further. When he saw that Su Mo was calm and full of confidence, he retreated slightly to the entrance of the tower.
Wenren Tiandu guessed that Su Mo’s confidence probably stemmed from a powerful hidden card.
Wenren Tiandu would not be too surprised if Su Mo had more hidden cards up his sleeve. After all, as the Holy Son of Firmament Palace, it would make sense for Su Mo to possess powerful hidden cards.
“Young punk, you said you’d kill me in three moves. If so, I’ll let you make the first three moves!” Sang Tian sneered in derision.
As long as Su Mo was not about to escape, torturing Su Mo would be an easy task for him. He planned to torture Su Mo cruelly before killing him.
