Chapter 1124: Battling with Martial Emperor Realm Experts
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
“Deputy Pavilion Leader Qian, were you waiting for me? What happened?” Su Mo was puzzled.
“It was Pavilion Leader who asked me to wait for you here!”
Deputy Pavilion Leader Qian nodded and looked serious. “Something big has happened. Netherworld Devil Sect master has been promoted to the Martial Emperor Realm!”
“What?” Su Mo was shocked and looked stunned. He wondered how the Netherworld Devil Sect master had broken through to the Martial Emperor Realm at this point.
“He’s really good with timing!”
“When did it happen?” He asked in a low voice.
“It was yesterday!” Deputy Pavilion Leader Qian sighed.
Su Mo frowned upon hearing that. He asked in surprise, “He broke through just yesterday, how did the news spread so quickly?”
Logically, if the Netherworld Devil Sect master had really broken through, it would take at least several days before the news came to the Firmament Palace!
“Su Mo, there are abnormal phenomena whenever someone enters the Martial Emperor Realm or promotes to Lv 8. Everyone in the Firmament World can see it.”
“Oh? What abnormal phenomena?” Su Mo was startled because he had never heard of this.
“A sun cross appears between heaven and earth. It shows that a Martial Emperor Realm expert has emerged. Everyone can see it.” Deputy Pavilion Leader Qian answered.
Su Mo nodded and asked, “Are Pavilion Leader Hai, Palace Master Di, and Dragon King of the East Sea still in the palace?”
“Pavilion Leader and Palace Master are there, Dragon King of the East Sea isn’t,” Deputy Pavilion Leader Qian said.
Su Mo asked no more and darted toward the Firmament Palace.
“Su Mo, all the craftsmanship materials that you asked me to collect are in the storage ring,” Deputy Pavilion Leader Qian caught up to him and gave him a storage ring.
“Oh?” Su Mo was surprised. Even after the Sky-sea Pavilion headquarters were destroyed, Deputy Pavilion Leader Qian still remembered and brought the craftsmanship materials.
“Thank you!” Su Mo did not refuse. He reached out his hands to take the ring. He did not give Deputy Pavilion Leader Qian Spiritual Stones in exchange for the materials because he regarded the Sky-sea Pavilion as part of the Firmament Palace.
Su Mo flew to the Firmament Palace rapidly and sent for Di Shi and Hai Mingjiang.
Only Su Mo, Di Shi, and Hai Mingjiang were in the Firmament Palace.
Hai Mingjiang and Di Shi looked solemn. They were obviously worried because the Netherworld Devil Sect master had broken through to the Martial Emperor Realm.
“You don’t need to worry about it!” Su Mo saw this and smiled. He was not overly concerned.
“Palace Master Su, how can we not worry? Wu Sen has broken through to the Martial Emperor Realm. Now, he is invincible. Nobody can defeat him!” Hai Mingjiang sighed with a worried look on his worn face.
If Wu Sen came over, all of them would probably die.
Although his aura had reached Lv 4 Martial Royal Realm as expected, Su Mo still would not be able to defeat a Martial Emperor Realm expert.
“Su Mo, do you have any countermeasures?” Di Shi asked in a low voice.
Upon hearing this, Su Mo hesitated and thought for a while and then said, “Don’t worry too much. Even if the Netherworld Devil Sect master has broken through to the Martial Emperor Realm, he will probably not invade the Firmament Palace!”
Su Mo did not worry too much because he knew the Huntian Luoshui Formation of the Firmament Palace was not a mere decoration.
“We can’t just sit still and wait for death!”
Di Shi shook his head and continued speaking. “The whole Firmament World was shocked that Wu Sen broke through to the Martial Emperor Realm. Many great forces will definitely draw closer to the Netherworld Devil Sect!”
“Don’t worry about that!” Su Mo shook his head. He believed other forces were not yet a concern. The only thing they should consider was how to deal with Wu Sen, the Netherworld Devil Sect master.
“I guess it won’t be long before Wu Sen comes to the Firmament Palace. We have to plan ahead!” Hai Mingjiang said.
“Right! The Palace Protection Formation is powerful but it cannot withstand attacks. If Wu Sen collaborates with a dozen Emperors-to-be and attacks, the Water-screen Formation won’t be able to stop it!” Di Shi said.
Su Mo was silent because what they had said was reasonable. He could not just await his doom.
If the Netherworld Devil Sect could overcome the Huntian Luoshui Formation, all his lovers, family, and friends would die.
How could he stop the Netherworld Devil Sect and Wu Sen?
It was unlikely that the Netherworld Devil Sect would give them time.
Besides, the Netherworld Devil Sect would not let off the Flood-dragon tribe of the East Sea. If they went to the East Sea first, the Flood-dragon tribe would probably be wiped out.
Su Mo pondered for a while before finally figuring out a solution.
“Please spread the news that I now possess the strength of the Martial Emperor Realm!” Su Mo seriously said as his eyes flashed like lightning.
“Martial Emperor’s strength?” Di Shi and Hai Mingjiang were astounded upon hearing his words. They wondered if Su Mo indeed had the strength of the Martial Emperor Realm.
“It’s impossible, right?”
Although he had an Emperor-to-be’s strength when he reached Lv 3 Martial Royal Realm, an Emperor-to-be was too far from a real Martial Emperor.
Even though he had been promoted to the Lv 4 Martial Royal Realm, he would not possess the strength of the Martial Emperor Realm!
Su Mo ignored their skeptical looks and said, “Aside from that, spread the news that I will contend with Wu Sen in the Emperor Xuan Mountain Range in 10 days!”
The Emperor Xuan Palace had been located in the mountain.
“Contend… with Wu Sen?” Di Shi and Hai Mingjiang were shocked by Su Mo’s words. They had never expected that Su Mo would fight Wu Sen.
“Palace Master Su, are you crazy?”
Hai Mingjiang stood up and said loudly, “You don’t know how formidable a Martial Emperor expert is. If you do this, it is like having a death wish!”
“Su Mo, it won’t work!” Di Shi shook his head as well.
They did not support his idea and thought it was stupid to fight a Martial Emperor expert.
Had he reached the Lv 5 Martial Emperor Realm, they would not stop him, but he was just at Lv 4—it was wishful thinking for him to contend with a Martial Emperor expert.
“I’m not crazy!”
Su Mo shook his head as he said, “The Netherworld Devil Sect will come in a few days. The entire Firmament Palace will be besieged. As you said, the Huntian Luoshui Formation won’t be able to stop them.
“If so, we’ll be in more danger!
“For the safety of the Firmament Palace, I am voluntarily asking for a battle and will leave the Firmament Palace. By doing so, Wu Sen will not come to the Firmament Palace. After all, their primary goal is to kill me.”
Su Mo slowly explained his idea.
Di Shi and Hai Mingjiang kept silent. They were not stupid, and they knew the truth.
They knew that Su Mo would be doomed to die if he really battled with Wu Sen.
If Su Mo died, everything would be over. Both of them would definitely die!
At present, Su Mo was their backbone.
