Chapter 1149: A Flaw
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
After leaving the Throne Room, Su Mo went straight out of the palace.
On the broad streets of the Imperial City, Su Mo went hundreds of feet each step, like a gust of wind.
A little while later, he left the Imperial City and came to the other city on Qingyu Island, thousands of miles away.
Then, Su Mo strolled around the city as if he had nothing to do.
However, although he was far away from the palace, he had been firmly monitoring Nation Master Qu Tan in the palace with his spiritual consciousness.
He had felt something off about Qu Tan, but he could not say exactly what was wrong.
Maybe he thought too much.
However, in order to track down the whereabouts of the Netherworld Devil Sect, he still needed to verify it.
If he was really a man from the Netherworld Devil Sect, Qu Tan would surely take action at this moment. Even if he did not know his identity, Qu Tan would have guessed that he was from the Firmament Palace.
Then, after he had left the imperial city, Qu Tan might try something, perhaps even fleeing from the palace.
If he ran away, it meant that Qu Tan was hiding something. He must be from the Netherworld Devil Sect.
Su Mo strolled around the city, asking martial artists about the Qingyu Empire’s Nation Master Qu Tan.
Qu Tan, as the Nation Master of Qingyu Empire, was known by all the people on Qingyu Island.
What Su Mo heard was basically the same as what Qu Tan had said.
Apparently, Qu Tan had not lied. He had been the Nation Master in the Qingyu Empire for over 40 years. He probably did not have anything to do with the Netherworld Devil Sect.
Just as he was strolling around, Su Mo suddenly straightened up, then shook his head helplessly.
He had discovered that someone was spying on him, and there was more than one.
With his spiritual consciousness, Su Mo found out that three people were watching him. They were the imperial family experts.
However, they had only reached the Lv 1 Martial Royal Realm. Even if they were careful, he could perceive them.
Su Mo knew very well about the imperial family’s plan. Since he had killed Wang Sheng, they needed to monitor his behavior to tell the Icy Palace of the North Sea.
Shaking his head helplessly, Su Mo ignored them. After all, he had killed the man. If the Icy Palace of the North Sea really vented their spite on the imperial family, the responsibility would be on his head.
After hanging out for more than two hours, Su Mo had learned something about Qu Tan and decided to find an inn to stay the night.
In the room, he sat cross-legged. He was meditating with his eyes closed while monitoring Qu Tan with his spiritual consciousness.
Since he had left Qingyu Palace, Qu Tan had not left the Throne Room. Emperor Qing Gu and Princess Qing Ya had not left either.
However, three imperial family experts had left.
At the moment, the three men were monitoring him from near the inn.
Time passed slowly, and Su Mo quietly practiced. About four hours later, he suddenly opened his eyes.
“So it is!”
Su Mo sneered from the corner of his mouth. He finally knew what was wrong with Qu Tan.
He was so composed.
Under normal circumstances, if Qu Tan was really only the Nation Master, he would get annoyed or even stand against Su Mo, even if he were not as strong.
At the very least, he would ask him why Su Mo was investigating him.
He had been very calm and answered all his questions honestly.
All this seemed to be well planned, and he was not panicked.
His composure was a flaw.
“He is surely from the Netherworld Devil Sect!”
As the cold light in Su Mo’s eyes flashed, he got up and stepped out, smashing through the wooden window of the room and flying out of the inn.
Then, Su Mo, like electricity, flew rapidly to the Qingyu Palace.
At an extremely fast speed, he flew into the Qingyu Palace like a bolt of lightning and rushed directly into the Throne Room.
The palace guards did not try to stop Su Mo because they could not see him. They only felt a sudden gust of wind blowing by.
In the Throne Room, Emperor Qing Gu and the imperial family experts were waiting for the people from the Icy Palace of the North Sea.
They had been monitoring Su Mo’s movements the whole time, and they knew where Su Mo was staying. When the experts from the Icy Palace of the North Sea came, they would tell the truth and let Su Mo bear their vengeance.Read latest chapters at vipnovel.com
But as they were waiting anxiously, Su Mo’s figure appeared in the hall instantly with a fluctuation in space.
“Little … little friend?” Qing Gu was shocked at Su Mo’s sudden arrival.
The others were also surprised. They did not understand why he had suddenly returned.
He dropped into the hall. Without saying a word, he attacked Qu Tan. Su Mo grabbed him with his big hands.
“What?” Everyone was surprised at this. They did not know what was going on in Su Mo’s mind. Why had he suddenly attacked Nation Master Qu?
Qu Tan was also slightly terrified, with panic in his eyes.
However, Su Mo would not allow others to resist. As the illusory Dark Force came quickly, he grabbed hold of Qu Tan.
At the Lv 2 Martial Royal Realm, Qu Tan was almost the same as Qing Gu. He could not resist Su Mo, and he had no time to flee.
He held Qu Tan captive at his side. Su Mo looked coldly into his eyes.
“Tell me, where are the people from the Netherworld Devil Sect? I’ll spare your life!” Su Mo asked coldly.
Qu Tan changed his face slightly. When he was just about to speak, something changed sharply.
A mighty imperial power suddenly came down from the sky and covered the entire palace. Suddenly, an icy wind gusted around the hall.
The temperature in the whole palace instantly dropped to freezing, and space itself seemed to have been frozen.
“Finally, they have come!”
“It’s the experts from the Icy Palace of North Sea!”
All the imperial family experts screamed and stood up in shock. Emperor Qing Gu, Princess Qing Ya, and the others looked solemn.
Before anyone could take action, a loud explosion suddenly came from the roof of the hall. Then, it was ripped off.
They saw a dozen figures floating in the sky above.
There were men and women. Except for one of them, they were all Martial Royal Realm experts.
Their leader was an man over 60 years old. He was dressed in a gray robe, and he was slightly bloated, with a wide face and a short beard.
But, at the moment, his face was full of rage, and his eyes were full of murderous intent.
His aura was frosty, freezing the very space around him.
And the only one who was not a Martial Royal Realm expert was a yellow-clad youth, Wang Sheng’s runaway companion.
“Third Elder, it’s him! He killed Brother Wang!” When the roof was ripped off, the yellow-clad youth saw Su Mo in the hall and immediately cried out.
“Little swine, are you going to kill yourself, or let me help you?”
said the old man. After he had heard the yellow-clad youth’s words, the old man’s eyes fell on Su Mo.
