Chapter 931: Extracting the Firewood from under the Cauldron
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo always thought that Shangguan Hao was a powerful person. After all, five years ago, when Shangguan Hao went to Lin Yang City, he was so dominant, so supercilious, and so high above.
In addition, Shangguan Hao’s ranking on the List of 10,000 Talents had always been a strong and invincible existence in Su Mo’s eyes.
Su Mo didn’t expect Shangguan Hao to act the same as some other ordinary fighters after being defeated. Shangguan Hao was so unbearable.
“Let me go!” Shangguan Hao thundered, struggling.
“Let you go?” Su Mo’s eyes flashed a murderous intent. He really wanted to completely destroy this loser.
However, Su Mo immediately pressed down the impulse and did not kill Shangguan Hao for the time being.
He was now in the Emperor Xuan Palace, and he must not kill Shangguan Hao. Otherwise, he would bear the anger of the entire Emperor Xuan Palace.
Although Su Mo wanted to kill Shangguan Hao very much, he refrained the impulse. He could not act on impulse since he was at the Emperor Xuan Palace.
However, he could still punish this man alive.
A crisp and clear sound suddenly rang out as a clear palm print appeared on Shangguan Hao’s face.
“Didn’t you say I’ll look up to you all my life?” Su Mo’s indifferent voice rose.
He did not wait for Shangguan Hao to answer and slapped again.
“You are now under my feet!” Su Mo said coldly.
“Didn’t you call me aborigines?”
“You are worse than aborigines!”
“Aren’t you fu*king arrogant?”
“Where is your pride?”
“Clap! Clap! Clap!”
Every time Su Mo said a line, he slapped Shangguan Hao’s face. In a few moments, he had slapped a hundred times.
Also, he slapped it hard. After a hundred merciless slaps, Shangguan Hao’s face was too horrible to look at.
The cheeks were already bloody and almost turned into meat paste, and even the cheekbones were smashed.
“Ah! Ah! Ah!”
Shangguan Hao gave a seires of horrible shrieks as blood spilled from his mouth. He looked like a monster in a horror movie.
“I’m gonna kill you!”
Shangguan Hao suddenly roared and punched at Su Mo’s face.
A fist radiance flashed and moved quickly.
Shangguan Hao’s body still had some potency of the elixirs. So in this short period of time, he had recovered a little amount of Dark Force.
However, with the Dark Force he restored, he could not compete with Su Mo at all.
With a muffled sound, Su Mo’s hand caught the fist easily.
“Want to kill me? Then I will let you lose the chance to kill me for the rest of your days! ”
A cold light glittered in Su Mo’s eyes. The best way to deal with this kind of people was to kill and exterminate them once and for all.
Although Shangguan Hao could not be killed, Su Mo had other ways to disable him forever.
“Swish, swish, swish!”
Su Mo’s arms swung up repeatedly to send out numerous airwaves which completely sealed this place.
They were now in the depths of the earth. There was only one channel smashed by Shangguan Hao’s body, which was now easily blocked by Su Mo. It was even difficult for people outside to use spiritual consciousness to peep in.
“What are you doing?”
Shangguan Hao suddenly snarled with horror upon seeing this. He suddenly had a bad feeling. “If you kill me, there will be no place for you in heaven and earth! ”
“Rest assured! I will not kill you, nor will I nullify your cultivation!”
The corner of Su Mo’s mouth curved with a weird smile.
After all, he did not want to end up in trouble. He still had to consider for his future.
“Then what are you doing?” Shangguan Hao’s eyes were uncertain. Because of his smashed cheeks, Su Mo could not even tell his expression.
“Devour!” He activated his Devouring Martial Soul and its devouring power instantly shrouded Shangguan Hao.
He did not want to devour Shangguan Hao’s blood essence or Dark Force. He wanted the Martial Soul.
Without the Martial Soul, Shangguan Hao would still look the same, but he could no longer cultivate.
In this way could Su Mo avoid future troubles.
Moreover, having such a powerful Martial Soul was also a great benefit.
“Buzz. Buzz. Buzz~~”
Under the influence of the devouring power, Shangguan Hao’s body trembled slightly, but nothing happened as expected.
Although he was injured, the devouring power could not even suck the blood out.
Shangguan Hao’s level was too high, while Su Mo’s level was too low. The Devouring Martial Soul was not working quite well.
Upon seeing this, Su Mo immediately slapped on the back of Shangguan Hao’s head.
With a muffled sound, Shangguan Hao was knocked into coma as his head almost flew away.
Su Mo then exerted his Devouring Martial Soul to an extreme.
The faint Shangguan Hao had no control over his body, and his blood was immediately sucked out and rushed to Su Mo.
Not knowing if it was an illusion, Su Mo found out that Shangguan Hao’s blood was different from ordinary people’s blood. Although it was also red, the color was slightly lighter and the temperature was very high, several times higher than that of boiling water.
Su Mo did not waste the blood. He had already consumed nearly 80 % of his Dark Force in the battle and now needed to be supplemented urgently.
As the blood went into his body, Su Mo immediately tried his best to refine them.
A few moments later, a dazzling light burst out on Shangguan Hao’s body and the gigantic Sun Martial Soul appeared.
Su Mo’s eyes lit up. Finally, the Martial Soul was sucked out.
“Buzz. Buzz. Buzz~~”
Without Shangguan Hao’s control, the Sun Martial Soul immediately flew to Su Mo and was instantly consumed.
Su Mo let out a sigh of relief. Without a Martial Soul, this person was completely wasted.
If a martial artist lost his Martial Soul, not only would his strength be decreased, but also would his cultivating be problematic.
Because martial artists relied on Martial Soul to absorb Spiritual Qi of heaven and earth.
Of course, Shangguan Hao could still absorb Spiritual Qi by taking Spiritual Herbs, but it was impossible for him to take drugs for a lifetime!
In short, without a Martial Soul, Shangguan Hao’s journey in martial art had basically ended.
This was like taking away the firewood from under the cauldron. Su Mo solved the problem from the fundamental level.
Then, Su Mo stopped the devouring power. Otherwise, Shangguan Hao would become a mummy.
Even so, ShangGuan Hao was now skinny and his blood has been sucked by more than a half.
After a short deliberation, Su Mo grabbed Shangguan Hao who looked like a dead dog and flew slowly to the ground.
Su Mo looked solemn. Although he defeated Shangguan Hao, it was not completely over yet.
He still had to find a way to take Xi ‘er away. He still faced great challenges from Di Shi.
Moreover, Huangfu Qing and the other Netherworld Devil Sect members would not let him leave safely.
