The Hidden Death Sect cultivator was stunned.
In front of him stood a man in green robes, expressionless with a sharp gaze; the latter was glaring at him with a cold killing intent!
The sword in his hand was caught between two fingers of the green-robed man and could not move at all!
Nangong Ling almost shrieked after that close brush with death.
Su Zimo was decisive in killing. After killing one of the Hidden Death Sect cultivators, he turned back swiftly and blocked the killing blow of another assassin!
It was too fast!
They were on completely different levels!
Not many people could see Su Zimo’s movement technique clearly.
Everyone felt their vision blur and thereafter, Su Zimo had already returned and gripped the Hidden Death Sect cultivator’s sword between two fingers!
Hidden Death Sect specialized in concealment and assassination.
Hidden Death Sect cultivators were particular about killing in a single strike!
If they missed their attacks, they would flee a thousand miles away.
They were not good at fighting head-on.
However, Su Zimo’s current body was comparable to perfect-grade Perfected Lord Dharmic weapons!
His physical strength was not something that any Hidden Death Sect cultivator could match!
Even the fiend heir of Hidden Death Sect would be killed on the spot, let alone an ordinary cultivator of Hidden Death Sect!
Su Zimo had already decided to establish his dominance and naturally would not hold back.
A cold glint flashed through his eyes as he channeled strength into his fingers!
The cold sword was snapped by two fingers and the tip of the sword flew backwards, entering the glabella of the Hidden Death Sect cultivator!
With a flash of blood, the Essence Spirit of Hidden Death Sect’s cultivator was also shattered by the sword fragment and died on the spot.
Instantly, two Nascent Souls died on the streets!
The way many cultivators looked at Su Zimo changed gradually.
Standing on the spot, Su Zimo gave off a shuddering aura!
It was the stench of blood!
The blood stench that was accumulated after killing countless paragons and stepping on the corpses of countless monster incarnates!
Initially, Su Zimo did not want to attract attention and his aura was restrained.
But now, he had to break through all obstacles with lightning speed and leave the city as soon as possible to bring Nangong Ling and the other two back to the sect!
Su Zimo swept his gaze and those who harbored evil intentions retreated, not daring to meet his gaze!
This was pressure!
It was a pressure that came from the number one of the Phenomenon Ranking!
Su Zimo strode forward in huge steps.
The crowd dispersed and cleared a path.
Nangong Ling and the other two followed hurriedly.
Along the way, many people were indeed shocked because Cheng Peng was crippled and two Nascent Souls of Hidden Death Sect were killed.
Some cultivators who wanted to snatch the Lava Crystal had to consider whether they could compare to Cheng Peng!
Not far away, many cultivators were clustered around a Nascent Soul. He was elegant and handsome, looking over with a smile.
It was Soaring Feather Sect’s Wu Tianyu who was ranked 11 on the Phenomenon Ranking!
“Senior Brother, should we attack?”
A Soaring Feather Sect cultivator asked softly.
Wu Tianyu glanced sideways at that person and asked, “Can you stop that green-robed cultivator?”
“I… can’t. Senior Brother, you can definitely do it.”
The cultivator murmured.
Wu Tianyu shook his head and said indifferently, “This person is unfathomable and I’m not confident either. The Middle Continent is truly filled with crouching tigers and hidden dragons. Cheng Peng’s defeat is not unjustified.”
The moment he said that, Wu Tianyu’s gaze shifted as he looked at the group of cultivators at the city gate. The corners of his lips curled as he murmured softly, “Interesting.”
Under the gazes of many cultivators, Su Zimo’s group traveled and arrived at the city gate before long.
There were more than ten cultivators standing in front.
Every single cultivator had a cold expression and stood in front of the long street with swords on their backs – it was clear that they had no intention of giving way.
When Nangong Ling saw the leader, his expression changed and he exclaimed softly, “Jian Wuzong!”
Sword Sect’s Jian Wuzong, third on the Phenomenon Ranking!
Ru Xuan stuck out her tongue and sent a voice transmission secretly, “Oh no, Jian Wuzong seems like he’s going to attack! Little Uncle-Master’s sword qi has just been released and he can’t attack anymore. What should we do?”
“Even if Little Uncle-Master can release that sword technique, it’s useless. Don’t forget, Jian Wuzong has cultivated the All Swords United phenomenon and every sword in the world will submit to it!”
Nangong Ling said with an anxious expression, “All sword cultivators will lose their combat strength in the face of Jian Wuzong! Little Uncle-Master can’t avoid it either!”
Liu Hanyan murmured, “I hope Jian Wuzong doesn’t target us. If…”
Pausing for a moment, Liu Hanyan hesitated for a moment before making a decision. “If he wants to fight for the Lava Crystal, I’ll give it to him.”
Nangong Ling and Ru Xuan did not speak.
In the face of the third on the Phenomenon Ranking, they felt a sense of helplessness and could only submit!
This was an absolute suppression of combat strength!
Furthermore, most sword cultivators were bloodthirsty people.
If Little Uncle-Master and them were implicated because of the Lava Crystal, it would be too late for regrets.
Right then, Su Zimo had already walked forward and said, “Move!”
Nangong Ling and the other two felt their hearts skip a beat!
How many Nascent Soul cultivators would dare to speak to Jian Wuzong in such a manner?
Jian Wuzong raised his long brows and killing intent surged in his eyes, exuding a chilling aura that he had no intention of hiding!
Nangong Ling hurried forward and tugged at Su Zimo’s sleeves, sending a voice transmission, “Little Uncle-Master, don’t be rash. You’re a sword cultivator and you can’t defeat him!”
After what happened earlier on, Nangong Ling’s attitude towards Su Zimo had changed.
With a worried expression, Liu Hanyan sent a voice transmission as well, “Uncle-Master, if worse comes to worst, we can just give this stone to them. There’s no need for us to fight with them.”
It was extremely dangerous to fight against sword cultivators!
Sword cultivators cultivated the Dao of killing and as long as they unsheathed their swords, blood would definitely be spilled!
Su Zimo was indifferent and continued to look at Jian Wuzong with a domineering aura!
Jian Wuzong grinned. “You’re not from Sword Sect.”
Initially, all the cultivators in Wind Cloud City thought that Su Zimo was the successor of Sword Sect. It was only now that everyone realized what was going on.
“Since you’re not a successor of Sword Sect, why aren’t you bowing to me?”
Jian Wuzong changed the topic.
“Why should I?”
Su Zimo asked indifferently.
Jian Wuzong reared his head in laughter and declared proudly, “Sword Sect is the place of pilgrimage for all sword cultivators in the world! I’m the most outstanding successor of the Sword Sect so you’re disrespecting the Sword Sect by not paying your respects to me!”
“If you disrespect Sword Sect, it means that you wish to die!”
Many cultivators shook their heads when they heard that.
“This man is doomed. He’s courting death for provoking Jian Wuzong.”
“He was too proud for refusing to pay respects to Sword Sect and hold himself back in front of Jian Wuzong. He deserves it if he dies here!”
Nangong Ling and the other two were anxious but did not know how to persuade him.
Right then, Jian Wuzong continued, “However, I can give you a chance on account of how hard you must have cultivated to get to this point. As long as you’re willing to follow me, I’ll spare your life.”
“This is a huge opportunity!”
“To think that there would be light at the end of the tunnel.”
“To be able to follow Jian Wuzong means that he has a chance to join the Sword Sect. This person is truly lucky.”
Everyone was filled with emotions.
Right then, everyone heard a scoff filled with mockery.
“You think you’re worthy of me following you?”
