Chapter 872: Perseverance, Concubine Selection Process
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
The moment the blood of the Dragonesque Elephant entered his body, his entire body burned as though he had swallowed molten metal.
Su Mo immediately started to cultivate the Archean Dragonesque Elephant Skill, releasing the powerful Qi contained within the blood essence of the Dragonesque Elephant and its mighty Qi force shot across the length of his entire body. His body gleamed golden and shadows of the Dragonesque Elephant appeared once again.
Su Mo’s physical strength surged rapidly as his physical Qi force also multiplied rapidly.
Qi force was something that usually remained hidden in his body and could boost his physical strength and defensive abilities. If he used it, it complemented his Dark Force very well.
Time slowly ticked by and even as his physical strength increased, Su Mo kept as close eye on his elixir field, closely monitoring the Dark Force within his Spiritual Spirals.
Four hours later, Su Mo’s body returned to normal. The golden glow, shadows of the Dragonesque Elephant, and the Qi force all disappeared into his body.
Lv 3 Martial King Realm!
He had successfully increased his physical strength to Lv 3 Martial King Realm.
Fortunately, the situation he was worried about did not manifest. His remaining two Spiritual Spirals only trembled slightly when his physical strength broke through, but quickly returned to normal.
“I should be able to succeed this time!” Su Mo smiled. Now that he had a physical strength of a Lv 3 Martial King Realm martial artist, his body should be able to withstand the pressure from the merging process.
“I must succeed this time!” Su Mo said as he took a deep breath. Then, he closed his eyes and began to merge his remaining two Spiritual Spirals.
He found the merging process a lot easier this time in spite of the pressure he faced.
After more than 20 hours, Su Mo successfully merged one Spiritual Spiral with his Super Spiritual Spiral.
He was now left with one final Spiritual Spiral to successfully complete the entire merging process.
Su Mo rested for a while and only started the final merge after he had regained full strength.
He used his Mind to mentally draw the remaining Spiritual Spiral slowly toward the Super Spiritual Spiral.
The moment the two Spiritual Spirals made contact, they shook violently, causing Su Mo’s body to tremble in unison.
Su Mo carefully controlled the movement of the two Spiritual Spirals.
His Super Spiritual Spiral was now extremely big and was like a huge, larger-than-life vortex. The Dark Force within it roared like a violent ocean, wild and turbulent.
As they merged together, his Super Spiritual Spiral started to shake violently and the dense Dark Force within his Spiritual Spiral transformed into violent waves that radiated across his surroundings.
Su Mo spat out a mouthful of fresh blood. He had been injured!
“How could it be so powerful?” Su Mo said as shock spread across his face. His Dark Force had become many times more volatile than the previous time.
“Merge!” Su Mo did not stop and his eyes went steely with determination as he continued to control the merging process of his two Spiritual Spirals.
Su Mo used all the Qi force in his body to protect his elixir field and his vital meridians.
These were his most vulnerable points, and they were also the most critical points to a martial artist. His top priority was to ensure that they were well-protected.
As his Spiritual Spirals slowly merged together, his Super Spiritual Spiral started to shake more violently. It was completely beyond his control and its powerful vibrations was extremely terrifying, enough to shatter the earth.
Crack! Crack! Crack!
Su Mo’s whole body started to shake violently and as his skin cracked open, boiling golden blood flowed from his open wounds.
Su Mo instantly resembled a golden statue, as if he was made of pure gold.
Su Mo did not stop, but gritted his teeth as he continued the merging process.
There was no going back now. He would either succeed and experience a huge surge in strength, or it would end in utter failure and cause his death.
This would all hinge on the final step!
Su Mo’s face took on a frenzied look. He did not regret choosing to tread on this path at all. Since he had chosen this path, he would do so till the very end.
“Merge!” Su Mo yelled and increased the speed of the merging process. He was afraid that his blood would run dry before the process was even complete.
Su Mo drew on all his mental strength to squeeze those two Spiritual Spirals together.
Although this increased the speed of the merge, it also caused his Super Spiritual Spiral to tremble even more violently, which in turn, increased the pressure on his physical body.
He coughed out another mouthful of blood and his face turned pale.
Time seemed to slow down and each breath was extremely torturous to Su Mo.
He gritted his teeth and stubbornly bore all the pressure.
“Damn him! That jerk!”
In a garden at the backyard of the Mansion, Bai Yin’er cursed as she waved her long black whip around.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
As the whip shadow swept around the area, the pretty flowers in the garden were shredded into pieces, releasing a strong floral scent that permeated the air.
Bai Yin’er finally stopped after she destroyed all the flowers in the garden.
Her chest heaved violently and her eyes were spitting fire.
“What is so great about him anyway? He is just a little more talented and a little more powerful than most people! How could he be so indifferent!” Bai Yin’er said spitefully.
She felt her temper rise each time she recalled his indifferent expression.
She knew that she was extremely beautiful, and her young and handsome suitors were so numerous that they could circle the perimeter of Great Martial City at least ten times.
She had always been the one treating them all indifferently, but now she was on the receiving end!
“Humph! Do you think I’d care?” Bai Yin’er muttered. With her massive ego, she would never allow herself to humble herself in front of others or try to be pleasant to someone who gave her the cold shoulder.
After she calmed down, she started to think of how she could teach Su Mo a lesson.
She could no longer be bothered with the mission her father gave her!
However, she soon found to her horror that she could not think of any way to teach him a lesson.
Even if she asked her father to attack him, he might not necessarily be able to defeat him.
She was suddenly filled with a sense of defeat and felt even more aggrieved.
Thud! Thud! Thud!
Heavy footsteps sounded behind her and she turned around to see her father walking toward her.
“Yin’er, what’s the matter now?” Governor Bai’s face darkened when he spotted the garden in shambles.
“Nothing. I just thought that these flowers were a real eyesore!” Bai Yin’er said nonchalantly.
Governor Bai shook his head helplessly, but did not pursue the matter. He walked up to Bai Yin’er and his face was extremely grave, as though something was troubling him.
“Father, what’s wrong?” Bai Yin’er asked in confusion. She had never seen her father like this before.
After a moment of silence, Governor Bai looked straight at her and said seriously, “Yin’er, someone from the palace came by today!”
“Someone from the palace? Is something the matter?” Bai Yin’er asked, perplexed.
Governor Bai sighed and his brows knit tightly together before he announced seriously, “You have been asked to take part in the concubine selection process of the Divine Martial Emperor!”
“What?” Bai Yin’er exclaimed as the color drained from her face.
