Chapter 982: The Treasure Tower
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
The skull was as impenetrable as a Divine Weapon, and the Spiritual Swords were not able to pierce it.
However, the power the swords carried knocked the skull around and slowed its movement.
Su Mo attacked Wu Shan while also controlling the Spiritual Swords.
He lept out, surging with sword power and sword Qi.
Wu Shan was unafraid and pushed out his palms, sending Dark Force in the shape of skulls to Su Mo.
Continuous explosions souded, and destructive blast waves rolled out in all directions.
When sword Qi met the skulls, some of it was devoured, while some of it exploded with the skulls.
Both men attacked continuously without giving the other any room to breathe.
Wu Shan kept sending out skulls with his left hand, and a long spear appeared in his right hand.
He flung the long spear towards Su Mo, casting multiple spear shadows.
Su Mo had the Demonic Sword with him, so he was not afraid of Wu Shan. After exchanging hundreds of blows, there was still no winner.
“How could he be so powerful?” Su Mo looked a little uncomfortable. He had underestimated Wu Shan.
He was still struggling to beat him, even with the help of the Demonic Sword. This meant that he was no match for this man without the sword.
Su Mo was incredibly shocked, but he did not know that Wu Shan was even more shocked.
Wu Shan never could have dreamed that he would be at a standstill with Su Mo, and his skull weapon was not helping at all.
Suddenly, the skull that was being surrounded by Spiritual Swords finally recovered. It opened its mouth wide and swallowed one of the swords whole.
Su Mo was startled because his Natal Spiritual Swords were connected to his mind, so he would be hurt if they were damaged.
After the Spiritual Sword was swallowed, Su Mo knew the enchanted fire inside the skull was burning it when he felt a sharp pain in his heart.
Luckily, the sword was forged of quality material and could not be instantly melted.
Su Mo ignored the stabbing pain in his heart and controlled the remaining Spiritual Swords to strike the skull on alternating sides.
Since the skull’s mouth was not entirely closed, the Spiritual Sword escaped from inside after a while.
Under Su Mo’s control, the nine Spiritual Swords continued to harass the skull.
They moved around extremely quickly and continuously attacked, preventing the skull from moving toward Su Mo or swallowing anything else.
In that moment, Su Mo and Wu Shan’s battle seemed to reach a standstill.
Contrastingly, the powerful Long Teng had already pushed the two experts to their limit, and they could barely defend themselves.
All the spectators were astounded.
Long Teng had almost died in Wu Shan’s skull, but Su Mo and Wu Shan were now evenly matched. This meant that Su Mo was much stronger than Long Teng.
Of course, the more watchful onlookers did not believe this.
Long Teng was losing to Wu Shan because he had been careless.
Su Mo’s Spiritual Swords could barely fend off Wu Shan’s skull, which is why there were at a standstill.
Even so, Su Mo’s strength put him in the Top Three on the List in most people’s eyes.
Su Mo never stopped attacking, and devastating sword Qi rained down on Wu Shan.
However, none of Su Mo’s attacks made it past Wu Shan’s skulls.
“This can’t go on!” Su Mo thought anxiously.
If this continued, he might never beat Wu Shan, and he might even lose.
As he attacked, Su Mo realized that he could only beat Wu Shan in hand-to-hand combat.
However, nearing Wu Shan was very dangerous because he might fall into his skull and wound up heavily injured, if not dead.
Su Mo glanced at Long Teng’s fight and decided not to risk it.
Long Teng was close to defeating the other two.
As long as Su Mo could hold on until Long Teng could join him, they would definitely win.
However, Wu Shan was also very astute.
He realized that he was struggling to beat Su Mo and did not have time to finish him.
When the flood dragon Crown Prince was free, Wu Shan would face a dual attack.
“Su Mo, today’s your lucky day! I’ll kill you for sure next time!” he shouted before retreating swiftly.
Then, the giant skull violently broke out of the Spiritual Swords, shrunk into a beam of light, and followed Wu Shan.
“Let’s go!” Wu Shan called out to the other two experts and turned around to run away.
He was very fast and covered thousands of kilometers in a flash.
The other two Netherworld Devil Sect experts were also very fast and followed behind.
“Where do you think you’re going?” Su Mo roared.
He summoned back his Spiritual Swords and flew on top of them to chase after Wu Shan.
He could not let Wu Shan escape, because he wanted to exchange him for Hong Qingxuan!
They all were extremely fast and left the scene of the battle far behind in a flash.
Long Teng saw Su Mo chase after them and frowned. He did not want to follow behind because it would be hard to kill them even if they caught up.
However, since Su Mo had already left, he could not let his savior go alone.
Without much thought, Long Teng also set out.
In the front, Wu Shan saw Su Mo behind him, and killing desire flashed in his eyes.
However, when he realized that Long Teng was also chasing him, he did not dare to fight and instead sped up.
“Su Mo, you’ll die as soon as you leave the Fighting Spirits’ Plane, no matter where in the world you hide!” Wu Shan yelled.
Without turning his head, he pushed back with his palms.
In an instant, a stream of Dark Force skulls flew out to block Su Mo and Long Teng.
“Break!” Su Mo roared.
He slashed them to bits with the Billion Demonic Sword.
However, there were still endless skulls affecting his speed, and Wu Shan was already thousands of kilometers ahead.
Su Mo did not give up, even though he knew he could not catch up with Wu Shan.
“Stop chasing, Su Mo!” pleaded Long Teng, who showed up behind him.
Su Mo frowned in frustration as he watched Wu Shan get away.
Just then, a treasure tower appeared in the void.
It started off small, but quickly expanded to thousands of meters tall.
Then, the tower fell down quickly, threatening to smash the escaping Wu Shan and the other two.
