Volume 13 Chapter 48 – The Dust has Settled
Luo Feng, Rong Jun and Wuka sat in the sofa and watched the screen, on it the battles of the primal region was going on.
“Half of the battles are already over, it’ll soon be Mo Luo against Simayam.” Wuka lifted his wine and crossed his legs, “Whoever loses of the 2 will have to battle to stay after!”
“Hm.” Luo Feng stared at the screen.
It definitely, had to be Mo Luo who lost!
Within Mo Luo’s huge primal region villa, in the vast grass field, he sat there cross legged, he enjoyed quietly pondering about the earlier battles.
“I didn’t expect that Bolan to be so strong, he had just passed the 7th level of the heavenly bridge not long ago…but he actually injured me heavily before I could kill him.” He didn’t expect any of the 2 newbies to give him any trouble, just like the absolute beginning’s seniors Sa Jin, Ni Nan and the others who had just passed the 7th level.
Mo Luo could easily kill them all!
However, he had to sacrifice one leg to kill Bolan, what did that represent? It meant that their strengths were close!
“His strength, even amongst the absolute beginning region, would only be a little weaker than Ke Luo Fu.” Mo Luo exclaimed, “A newbie that just passed the 7th level 2 years ago, that strong…”
He didn’t know.
Bolan’s talent in the space law was terrifying, it was only because he was prideful and chose to study the universe tablet with both time and space simultaneously, hence he wasted so much time. Now that he had his focus on space laws, his improvement was shocking!
“Bolan is already defeated, he’s no longer a threat…I now have to defeat Simayan.” He frowned.
The 3 seniors of the primal region.
Fei Tuo was the absolute number 1, he had long passed the 8th level, obviously exceptional.
Mo Luo and Simayan were close in strengths!
“In the previous battles I defeated Simayan. And in the battles after…he defeated Ke Luo Fu!” Mo Luo pondered, “He is a hypnotist, strong against Ke Luo Fu! However…Both Ke Luo Fu and I are fighters! And his improvement in these past couple of hundred of years has been shocking!”
“It was very dangerous the past qualification battles, however last time, he was only close to me in strength.”
“However now…from the footage of him against Luo Feng, his strength has already exceeded mine.” Mo Luo frowned, troubled.
Wolfman Ke Luo Fu!
His rise in strength was in mostly in the recent 200 years, even though he was strong before, he was only comparable with chemist Yu Feng! Now however, he had completely taken the lead…a sort of different level altogether! Even Luo Feng was completely subdued by him!
Mo Luo knew from watching the footage that Ke Luo Fu had already exceeded him!
“The moment I’m defeated by Simayan, with 6 people fighting for the primal region slot, and with Ke Luo Fu in the 6…I won’t have any hope!” Mo Luo shook his head, “No matter, I must stay in the primal region!”
His expression was complex, even though he was shocked by Luo Feng’s power, it was obvious he was currently more worried about Ke Luo Fu!
“Only one way!”
“That way, I’ll remain in the top 2!” Mo Luo took a deep breath, “Once I’m in the top 2, I won’t have to contest with the others. I’ll let Simayan go fight it out with Ke Luo Fu…”
“Against Simayan, I have to win, I have to win!!!” He thought.
In a moment…
The virtual universe system’s voice ringed in his ears, “Mo Luo, the primal region universe level battles, your 3rd match is about to begin, your opponent is Simayan.” Simultaneously, the screen on his wrist immediately displayed information and he was transported into the arena.
The cold winds howled, snowflakes as big as goose feather’s flew about, the ice was incredibly thick.
2 silhouettes appeared above the ice.
“Mo Luo!” A roar resounded.
“Simayan!” Mo Luo smiled, in the distance a black robed purple haired youth standing on a flying spirit weapon flew into the sky, on his forehead was a complex purple engraving, his purple eyes had a peculiar demonic energy.
This purple haired youth was Simayan, a hypnotist.
The hypnotist Jia Lai Xi from the genius competition was also a hypnotist, however compared to Simayan, he was much weaker.
“Mo Luo.” Simayan’s eyes were cold, he stood on his flying weapon and gazed down, “You should be clear that this battle, whoever loses will have to contest to stay. And that Ke Luo Fu is obviously much stronger than 1000 years ago. Even though I’m his bane, I don’t have much of a chance! As for you…I’m sorry but you’ll definitely have to lose here!”
Mo Luo’s expression immediately grew heavy.
All the absolute geniuses of the primal region all had pressure, the moment they were careless, they would be knocked out of their place. Just like Ke Luo Fu’s explosion in strength…it made their 2 positions at risk.
“If I meet Ke Luo Fu, I would probably lose, however I don’t have to fight him at all. Because…you’ll definitely lose here!” Mo Luo roared and fiercely stomped the ground.
The thick ice layer was immediately shattered and countless ice shards dropped into the ocean, many more dispersing in all directions. He flashed like lightning and rushed before Simayan, his fists like a flaming shooting star.
1 fist was like a shooting star punching towards Simayan, the surrounding space warped around it.
“Haha, you are too slow.” 10km away, Simayan laughed on his flying weapon, “Can’t you see that that was my illusion?”
“Hm?” Mo Luo fiercely retracted his fist and landed on the ice, gazing at the distant Simayan.
“I was lenient just now, now however, no more.” Simayan laughed and a formless spirit energy pierced straight into Mo Luo’s soul, the hypnotism had already seeped in…
This battle was being watched by over tens of thousands of geniuses in the core of the virtual universe company, of which included Luo Feng, Rong Jun and Wuka.
On the screen.
The 3 stared hard.
“Powerful, Madman, Savage, who do you think will win?” Wuka said casually, Rong Jun too was smiling, only Luo Feng was glued to the scene, his consciousness like an AI swiftly calculating the outcome of the battle, how would he deal with each move.
Without a doubt, he wished for Mo Luo to lose!
However from the battle scene, even though Simayan’s hypnotism was terrifying, when Mo Luo battled, it was indeed like a wild beast attacking, even though he was affected by the hypnotism, he quickly broke through it and once again chased Simayan.
Simayan did his best to create distance, and unleash his hypnotism, the moment he succeeded he immediately used his arc blade along with his spirit weapon to attack!
The skies and land immediately became an endless sea of flames, and within were many Simayans, with a glance, over a trillion of them stood about.
“Mo Luo! Mo Luo! Mo Luo! Mo Luo! Mo Luo! … A trillion Simayan’s simultaneously spoke and Mo Luo who was in the center frowned as he gazed about, he calmly analyzed it, thinking of which of the trillion was the real Simayan.
“This is the newest hypnotism!”
“Named the flame world illusion.”
Mo Luo actually closed his eyes and didn’t look, focused as he waited.
“Over here!” Mo Luo flashed like lightning, his legs like blades flashing forward to kill!
Mo Luo opened his eyes, he saw Simayan with a gaping wound in his chest, fresh blood spurting out, he could even see his internal organs.
“Hmph!” Mo Luo smiled, however his smile quickly disappeared.
His head was split in 2 and his body fell.
Mo Luo, dead!
“The truth is fantasy, and the fantasy is real!” The distant heavily injured Simayan stood on his flying weapon, his face pale as he smiled at the body, “You think closing your eyes is enough?”
Primal region, Mo Luo’s vila.
“I actually lost, I actually lost.” Mo Luo sat in his study and gripped his fist hard, he nails pierced into his palm, his eyes still unable to accept his defeat.
“I still succumbed to his move!”
“I thought that I had already broken through the illusion to his real body, I didn’t expect…he used his real body to take the damage and place another environment to attack. Truth in the fantasy, fantasy in the truth.” Mo Luo shook his head, indeed, that Simayan’s fire and space law melding had reached an unbelievable level.
“This is troublesome.”
He frowned, “I have to contest for the slot now! Me, Bolan, Long Yun, Ke Luo Fu, Yu Feng, Luo Feng…the 6 vying for one primal region slot. The other 5 will fail and re-enter the absolute beginning region.”
“Ke Luo Fu…I have no guarantee at all.”
“Hmph, I didn’t expect Luo Feng to make it to the top 3 too.”
“I can’t be bothered with him. My greatest opponent is still Ke Luo Fu!”
Mo Luo didn’t think anymore, he swiftly found Ke Luo Fu’s previous battle footages and seriously studied them.
Absolute beginning region, Wuka’s villa.
Luo Feng and the others sat in the sofa watching the footage of Mo Luo and Simayan’s battle.
“Hypnotist mixing real attacks perfectly, truth in the fantasy, fantasy in the truth.” Rong Jun complimented, “I heard the highest level of a hypnotist…is to make the person think of the illusion has reality, living his entire life within.”
Luo Feng nodded, his eyes gleaming with glee.
The dust had settled, the people for the contest for the primal region slot from the primal region were, Bolan, Long Yun and finally…Mo Luo!
“Heaven has given me the chance, Mo Luo, I’ll first step on you here and settle you in reality in the future.” Luo Feng squinted.
