“C...can I participate?”
Jia Wendong was so agitated that his speech was incoherent.
Leaving aside Sun Mo and Ming Xian, even with regard to these students, Jia Wendong didn’t dare to guarantee that he would be able to defeat them. However, a salted fish also had the right to dream, right?
What would happen if his luck was off the charts and he was selected by the darkness illusion gemstone, becoming its master?
The gemstone’s consciousness didn’t give Jia Wendong any face. “You are too weak. If you participate in my game, it’s a type of humiliation to me.”
Jia Wendong was so angry that he wanted to cough up blood. However, his lips merely moved. He didn’t dare to curse out loud.
“Let’s start quickly!”
Xuanyuan Po urged.
“Sorry, you cannot participate either!”
The gemstone’s consciousness used a tone that was filled with disdain. “You already failed once. From my point of view, you are rubbish. Please stay far away from me.”
“You are courting death!”
Anger suffused Xuanyuan Po’s face. He lifted his silver spear and pierced it toward the floating crystal gemstone.
Sun Mo’s figure flashed, appearing before Xuanyuan Po. He grabbed hold of Silver Paste.
Sun Mo berated.
Tantai Yutang shook his head slightly. Their teacher was still too kind-hearted. If he was ruthless enough, he could use Xuanyuan Po, who was always eager for a fight, to probe the gemstone.
“C...can I not participate?”
Lu Zhiruo lifted her small hand. She knew how strong she was. If she participated in such a competition, not only would it be impossible for her to obtain the battle spoil, but she would also bring trouble to her teacher, causing him to worry.
Hence, what she could do was to cheer by the sidelines!
The gemstone’s consciousness mentally mused, ‘Even if you want to participate, I can’t allow it’.
For some reason, it wasn’t able to create a darkness illusion of this large-breasted girl.
One must know that it was a treasure that existed for several hundreds of years and had copied countless lifeforms and spirits. The only thing it couldn’t copy seemed to be Lu Zhiruo.
“I will not participate either.”
Li Ziqi bowed out.
“Master is wise!”
Ma Qianzu cheered. Since it was Li Ziqi’s spiritual departed spirit, once the little sunny egg died, it would die with her as well. Hence, it wanted nothing more than for Li Ziqi just to stay home safely every day.
After cheering, Ma Qianzu hurriedly shut its mouth and did its best to be something that no one paid attention to.
That gemstone emitted a terrifying might and pressure. If the gemstone wanted to kill it, the gemstone would only need a single thought.
“Tantai, are you not bowing out?”
Lu Zhiruo was a little worried. She didn’t feel that a student would be capable of obtaining this gemstone. Also, if their teacher obtained it, their teacher would surely share it with them all.
“I won’t live for too long, so I might as well make my life more fascinating.”
Tantai Yutang chortled. He wondered if he could use the gemstone to extend his life.
“There’s no need for you to take the risk.”
Li Ziqi wanted to persuade him. Given Sun Mo’s generosity, he wouldn’t hoard the treasure for himself even if he was to obtain it.
The sickly invalid shrugged, already making up his mind. He didn’t want to own Sun Mo too much.
“Very well, let’s get things started then!”
The gemstone’s voice had a mocking tone to it. Sun Mo, Ming Xian, Gu Xiuxun, and Tantai Yutang transformed into motes of light with a thudding sound and vanished in the great hall.
Lu Zhiruo jumped in fright.
“Your game would surely be extremely fascinating. How about letting us spectate them?”
Li Ziqi flattered it. Actually, she was worried about Sun Mo’s safety.
“Small-chested girl. Before me, just keep all your tiny tricks to yourself.”
The gemstone’s consciousness chortled, “However, it’s true that it would be more interesting if more people spectate it. I really want to let you guys see your teachers struggling. I wonder what expressions you would have then.”
“You are the one with a small chest. Your whole family has small chests!”
The little sunny egg was very depressed.
Four light screens were displayed, akin to four projections. These four projections respectively showed Sun Mo and the others. Each of them was currently walking in a different corridor.
Tantai Yutang halted. He was extremely cautious and took out a medical pellet, tossing it out.
The medical pellet dissolved into invisible smoke and filled the entire place. Only then did he continue to walk forward.
Sun Mo and Ming Xian were both confident. After they turned their heads and surveyed the surroundings, they continued walking forward with calm looks on their faces as though they were on a tour.
Gu Xiuxun paused for a few seconds before heading forward. Her gaze was filled with wariness.
At the end of the corridor, there was a square-shaped arena. Sun Mo walked onto it and saw another ‘Sun Mo’ appearing at the center of the arena.
Sun Mo frowned and activated Divine Sight.
The other party was Sun Mo in a furious state. It was classified as an unknown lifeform!
“Attacking darkness illusions again? Can we have something fresh?”
Jia Wendong felt that this was very boring.
“Watch quietly!” Li Ziqi berated.
At this moment, the darkness illusions of the four of them discovered their respective targets and started howling.
As they roared in anger, their spirit qi erupted forth, enveloping them completely. Also, their skin, hair, and eyes all turned red.
It was as though they were angry flames.
After that, the furious illusions rushed out.
From the impact of an intense collision, Sun Mo and the other three directly flew through the air. This was especially so for Tantai Yutang. He was in the most miserable state. After all, he was the weakest out of the four.
Tantai Yutang fell onto the ground and coughed up a mouthful of blood.
“I suddenly feel some regret for entering.”
Although it was just a single strike, the sickly invalid could confirm that for the first round, what was tested was their combat strength, the thing he was least proficient in.
However, when he looked at the appearance of the furious illusion, the sickly invalid revealed a trace of envy.
“Is this how I look if I was healthy? Great!”
As Tantai Yutang mumbled, he took out three medicinal pellets and tossed them out.
Using unfathomable medicinal substances for battle was always his trump card.
Everyone spectating had their gazes shifting around the four light screens. But very soon, they turned their gazes toward the light screens showing Sun Mo and Ming Xian.
The sight of Tantai Yutang was too tragic. As for Gu Xiuxun, she only chose to defend. Evidently, she was preparing to observe the flaws of the furious illusion.
As for Sun Mo and Ming Xian, they showed two different combat styles.
Ming Xian’s movements were light and ethereal, exuding elegance. He used his advantage of speed to suppress his furious illusion. As for Sun Mo, he was like an iron-blooded male, fighting his furious illusion head-on.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Sun Mo’s fists were like cannons, hammering the furious Sun Mo.
“Do you think you are a Super Saiyan and have a second-stage transformation? If you are capable, why don’t you use a Kamehameha on me right now?”
Sun Mo mumbled. Actually, he felt a little envious in his heart.
His furious illusion that was clad in red spirit qi looked f**king dashing. Also, its expression wasn’t bad. There seemed to be thunderous rage between its brows.
Eternalism, Great Mercy!
Sun Mo unleashed the Dharma Skyshock Fist and went all out.
“T..Teacher Sun is too rash, right?”
Jia Wendong was astonished. He felt that Gu Xiuxun’s battle strategy was the most correct one.
Xuanyuan Po was fully focused, both his hands kept moving about in excitement as he watched.
Favorable impression points from Xuanyuan Po +500. Respect (1,200/10,000).
“He is a mad man!”
Jia Wendong’s lips twitched. After that, he turned to glance at Li Ziqi. He knew this girl was very intelligent and had extensive knowledge. Hence, he wanted to ask her for her opinion.
“Is there some profound meaning behind Teacher Sun’s actions?”
In the end, Li Ziqi completely ignored him. Just when he was preparing to raise his voice to ask again, Li Ziqi and Lu Zhiruo suddenly hugged each other as they jumped in excitement.
“Teacher is so awesome!”
Seeing the two girls’ flushed countenance, Jia Wendong felt a little jealous. (When would I have such cute worshippers?)
“Yes, beat it, hammer its face!”
Ma Qianzu cursed loudly, causing Jia Wendong to jump in fright.
“Very good, there’s another crazy person here!”
Jia Wendong’s lips twitched. However, when his gaze turned back toward the light screen, he involuntarily sighed ruefully. The punching skill of Teacher Sun was truly tyrannical.
In the arena, killing intent brimmed violently.
Since he was young, Sun Mo had been a cautious person. When he played computer games, although there were many ‘lives’, he would still play very cautiously.
And after arriving in the Middle-Earth Nine Provinces, although he possessed many saint-tier cultivation arts, Sun Mo always felt like he was just a fledgling bird that just got to know this world. He was only living in his safety zone.
If there was no need to, he absolutely wouldn’t take risks.
Yet today, Sun Mo was influenced by the forcefield of his furious illusion. His emotions were agitated. Besides, after learning the Dharma Skyshock Fist, he had never truly gone all out and enjoyed a brawl to his heart’s content.
It wasn’t that he didn’t want to but that the enemies hadn’t been formidable enough.
For example, someone like Zhen Yuanxiong. Although he was at the sixth level of the blood-ignition realm, he still lost to Sun Mo easily.
Today, Sun Mo finally found a chance to fight all out.
“I want to determine exactly where the limits of my combat strength are!”
Sun Mo’s eyes stared at the furious illusion. When he battled, he would usually unceasingly observe his opponent while contemplating. He would counter their moves based on what they used. But now, he fought directly based on his instincts.
Sun Mo exchanged a blow with the furious illusion, and both hit the other in the chest.
Sun Mo was blasted back 20 meters away and directly slammed into a wall. But after that, he pushed against the wall and shot forth like a cannon.
Boundless Sea of Suffering, Impermanence!
Spirit qi gushed forth from Sun Mo. The image of a gigantic buddha statue appeared and started to pound the furious illusion.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Everywhere the fist passed, things were shattered and transformed into fine powder.
All of a sudden, the sounds of a buddhic chant could be heard. This caused one’s mind and spirit to involuntarily calm down.
Buddha Song Calms the Heart!
The body of the furious illusion trembled, and it fell into a daze. After that, Sun Mo’s heavy fist hammered its head.
Muda Muda Muda Muda!*
Sun Mo roared.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
The head of the illusion exploded like a watermelon. It was crushed completely.
White brain matter and fresh blood flowed out.
The skull split into six fragments after slamming into the wall.
Sun Mo halted. After panting heavily for a while, he involuntarily waved his fist. “Truly satisfying!”
“It died just like that?”
Jia Wendong turned and glanced at Teacher Ming Xian’s screen after that. Although Ming Xian had the advantage and looked impressive, he was clearly one level inferior when compared to Sun Mo.
Besides, Jia Wendong discovered that he actually liked Sun Mo’s iron-blooded brawling style more. (I don’t give a damn who you are, if you cross me, I shall explode your head!)
Favorable impression points from Jia Wendong +500. Respect (2,050/10,000).
There had only been a single path leading to the arena. But right now, on the eastern side of the wall, a section of it rose, revealing a passageway.
“Fascinating. Extremely fascinating. As the first participant to pass the first round, I can let you choose to leave the darkness spire.”
The gemstone’s consciousness gave Sun Mo a new option.
 Muda Muda = reference to a character’s fighting phrase in Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure
