“You mean that if I continue, I will die for sure?”
Sun Mo counter-asked.
Spirit qi gushed forth from Sun Mo’s hands, forming into the genie. After that, the genie executed the ancient massage technique on him.
The furious illusion was extremely powerful. That intense battle earlier had fractured many of Sun Mo’s bones, and some of his muscles were swelling as well.
Right now, Sun Mo felt like he was tossed inside a meat grinder and was ‘processed’ three times. But as the genie massaged, Sun Mo immediately felt much more comfortable than before.
“That’s for sure!”
The gemstone’s consciousness introduced, “I can’t remember how many years it has been since I gained sentience, and I also can’t remember how many invaders there have been. However, I’m sure that not a single one of them left here alive. Just a few months ago, even a 5-star great teacher died here.”
“That sounds really terrifying!”
Sun Mo chortled and continued to delay for time. “However, I don’t wish to leave empty-handed.”
“Then, please continue!”
The gemstone’s consciousness wasn’t willing to waste time. “I’m anticipating your performance!”
The recovery effect of the genie’s massage wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t enough. Sun Mo took out a bottle of lover protection medicine. He popped the cork and just when he wanted to pour it into his mouth, he suddenly heard a bang as a cloud of white mist was emitted.
In the blink of an eye, the mist transformed into a woman with a wonderful figure. She floated in the air and was clad in a pure-white gown. From the looks of things, she seemed about 20+ in age and had the vibe of a sexy and mature woman.
Sun Mo’s eyes involuntarily turned toward that ‘woman’.
As the ‘woman’ fully materialized, she suddenly stretched out her fair hands and hugged Sun Mo’s neck. After that, she pulled him before her and didn’t hesitate to lower her head and kiss Sun Mo.
“My heavens, what’s the meaning of this?”
Jia Wendong was dumbfounded. He knew he shouldn’t look at the woman, but he completely had no way to shift his vision away. The next thought in his mind was that he should find a wife like this.
“I hate that woman!”
Lu Zhiruo’s lips twitched. “She’s not pure!”
“Is this the effect of the medicine?”
Li Ziqi was much more rational. She read many books before and was a learned young girl. However, she had never read about medicine with such an effect!
Where did her teacher obtain this?
(It couldn’t be something he concocted himself, right?)
“Kiss, what kiss? Quickly clear the second round!”
Xuanyuan Po anxiously roared in complaint. How could there be the joy of slaughtering enemies on the blood-soaked battlefield if two lips were to meet like that?
Sun Mo had a dumbfounded look on his face. The usage method of this lover protection medicine wasn’t oral consumption? How should he use it then?
Very soon, Sun Mo knew the answer.
The ‘woman’ passed some of the medicine solutions into Sun Mo’s mouth orally.
Sun Mo subconsciously wanted to push this ‘lover’ away. Sadly, the other party was too strong.
As he swallowed the medicine, not only did Sun Mo feel a sensation of fragrance and sweetness in his mouth, but his body also glowed with a layer of white light. After that, his injuries recovered at a speed visible to the naked eye.
Sun Mo exclaimed in admiration. Earlier when he was breathing, he felt some pain in his chest. But now, the sensation of pain had vanished completely. His condition was extremely good.
The effect was not bad.
Sun Mo felt that the pharmacist who invented this medicine was definitely a pervert.
This scene persisted for a minute. When it ended, the ‘lover’ let go of Sun Mo and floated backward. After that, with a clapping sound, it became a cloud of mist and vanished in the air.
“I can feel your lifeforce becoming more vibrant. So, that is your trump card?”
The gemstone’s consciousness didn’t interrupt Sun Mo’s healing process. It was still very confident. “However, I can tell you that it’s useless. There’s only a path of death for you if you continue forward!”
However, before the sound of the gemstone’s consciousness faded, Sun Mo had entered the passageway.
This time around, even Jia Wendong no longer looked at Ming Xian’s battle. Instead, he was filled with curiosity as he looked at Sun Mo’s light screen.
After that, he grew disappointed.
“Why is it another darkness illusion? What the hell?”
Jia Wendong was extremely unhappy. (Can there be some fresher challenges?)
The battle started but after Sun Mo clashed a few times with his darkness illusion, he immediately lengthened the distance between them. His gaze was heavy as he stared at it.
“Eh? What’s going on?”
Jia Wendong didn’t understand. This darkness illusion was clearly weaker compared to the furious illusion from the first round. However, why did Sun Mo seemingly become so cautious and solemn?
The illusion didn’t chase him, allowing Sun Mo to rest.
After observing closely, Sun Mo attacked again. But one minute later, he backed off once more.
“What’s going on exactly?”
Jia Wendong scratched his scalp. He couldn’t understand.
“My teacher’s attacks are reflected back on him.”
Xuanyuan Po explained.
Jia Wendong was a little bewildered.
“It also means that by attacking the illusion, it’s equal to self-mutilation.”
Li Ziqi explained.
Her teacher was using a wooden blade and not a sharp sword. Basically, the flesh wouldn’t be sliced and there wasn’t blood flying around. Hence, it wasn’t that easy for the spectators to realize what was going on.
However, upon closer observation, one could see that whenever Sun Mo’s wooden blade struck the illusion, on the corresponding parts of his body, there would be traces of being hit.
Sun Mo rushed out for the third time. This time, the duration of combat was longer. Clearly, he was trying to probe more information from the illusion. As for Jia Wendong, he finally understood what he was watching.
“What do you guys think about this? Will it work if Teacher Sun doesn’t do so many attacks and chooses to insta-kill the illusion?”
Jia Wendong thought of a solution. But after he said it, two gazes of contempt shot over.
“Leaving aside that it’s basically impossible to insta-kill such a strong enemy, even if one could do so, who knows if their true body would survive the ‘reflected damage’?”
Li Ziqi felt that Jia Wendong was too dumb. There was no way to ‘restart’ this round. If a mistake was made, the price paid might very well be one’s life.
Sun Mo continued hitting the illusion and stopping. Also, the illusion wouldn’t take the initiative to attack him.
“Teacher Ming has just entered this round!”
Lu Zhiruo reported in a small voice.
An instant later, Gu Xiuxun also passed the first round. As for Tantai Yutang, he had long since poisoned his furious illusion to death via medical substances. But because he was treating his injuries, he was delayed for a while and finally entered the second round now.
After that, all of them discovered that the second round was very hard to deal with.
“Wrong, this is just the second round. That gemstone’s consciousness wouldn’t give us a hopeless situation!”
Sun Mo contemplated.
He did think before whether the ‘reflected damage’ was fake? But after he checked, he realized the damage was real. Hence, he didn’t dare to attempt to kill the illusion. What if he killed himself?
Tantai Yutang’s poisonous mist drifted toward the illusion. After that, the ‘reflection’ started. The sickly invalid immediately started coughing and his face was flushed red.
Right now, he was absolutely exhibiting the signs of being poisoned.
Hence, he hurriedly consumed the antidote.
Li Ziqi and Lu Zhiruo stared at the light screen. All of a sudden, Jia Wendong’s excited shout rang out from beside them.
“Teacher Ming passed the second round!”
Jia Wendong had a complacent look on his face as he stared at Li Ziqi and the other two. “Do you see it? This is the strength of our Teacher Ming. I already knew that the second round tests one’s guts. If one doesn’t have the guts to use their life as the bet, they will never be able to pass this.”
“What do you think?”
Li Ziqi ignored Jia Wendong and glanced at the papaya girl instead.
“I don’t know, but I feel what he said is wrong.”
The papaya girl shook her head. If it was her, she would choose to become friends with the illusion and ask it to let her pass.
“As expected, my guess was right!”
Ming Xian felt a lingering fear. If it wasn’t for his clan mistress being a rare illusionist and if he hadn’t been guided personally by her, he would have taken a very long time for this round.
“The first round most probably wouldn’t stump Sun Mo. But the second round must be challenging to him.”
Ming Xian felt that when he exited this place later, Sun Mo would have become a corpse.
For this round, the test wasn’t about courage. If one thought this way and killed the illusion, they themselves would definitely die.
Sun Mo used the ancient massaging technique again and summoned the muscular genie to heal his injuries. However, after the genie was summoned, it didn’t move.
Sun Mo frowned. He was suddenly struck by a burst of sudden inspiration.
The gemstone’s consciousness wasn’t idle enough to keep playing with its ‘toys’. For the second round, the time limit was half an hour. If the participant wasn’t able to find a way to pass the round, the illusion would start to attack.
For Sun Mo, the duration was up. Hence, the illusion lunged over.
Sun Mo’s wooden blade smacked the illusion’s arm, and the illusion didn’t even blink. Sun Mo was the one who felt the pain instead.
“Teacher Sun is very impressive, but this is his final stop.”
Jia Wendong sighed.
“Shut your damn crow mouth!”
Li Ziqi roared.
Lu Zhiruo’s actions were more decisive. She directly pulled out a dagger and was prepared to stab this idiot with a crow mouth to death.
“Don’t misunderstand, I have no intention of insulting Teacher Sun, but the truth is as such!”
Jia Wendong jumped in fright.
“You are still talking?”
The papaya girl was prepared to act.
“Don’t quarrel anymore. Even if you want to kill him, let’s wait until Teacher wins against the illusion. That will knock some sense into this idiot’s brain.”
Li Ziqi’s tone was ice-cold.
The illusion started to attack. Its speed was extremely fast and it kept chasing after Sun Mo. There was basically no way for Sun Mo to evade.
Its attacking prowess wasn’t strong, but the ‘damage reflection’ was truly annoying.
Sun Mo finally couldn’t bear it anymore. He blasted the illusion’s head with a blade.
The head of the illusion exploded. As for Sun Mo himself, he also fell straight onto the ground.
Lu Zhiruo was badly shocked. She wanted to look for her teacher, but there was no path to take.
Li Ziqi held on to the papaya girl.
“What’s going on?”
Jia Wendong didn’t understand. Why did Sun Mo fall down with a look of extreme agony on his face when the illusion died?
“Boohoohoo, t..teacher will surely be fine.”
The papaya girl was very worried, but she also felt that her teacher would be able to pass this round. Hence, the conflicting feelings caused her to feel very miserable.
Li Ziqi was suddenly enlightened.
“What do you understand?”
Lu Zhiruo sobbed and frantically clutched Li Ziqi’s arm.
Xuanyuan Po was in deep contemplation.
