Chapter 1273: Wu Chang Yuan
Time flew by quickly, but Su Mo had been waiting for five days without any sign of Wu Tianyu.
Meanwhile, groups of people arrived at the Earth Pagoda.
Su Mo sighed heavily. It wasn’t like he had many other choices. A martial artist in the Martial Emperor realm could isolate himself in cultivation for months, even years.
Although it would be unlikely for Wu Tianyu to cultivate for years, a few months was highly possible.
In that moment, Su Mo saw a familiar face from the corner of his eye. A tall, skinny, narrow faced young man clad in a green robe arrived at the first level of the Earth Pagoda.
Su Mo raised his eyebrows in surprise upon seeing this man. He had seen him before, he was one of the geniuses from the Firmament World training.
This man had also been captured by Qin Bu Si. It was only after Wu Fan, the Honourable Martial artist, released his sound wave that this man was able to successfully escape, thus saving his life.
As for now, he was currently in the Level 1 Martial Emperor Realm.
Su Mo quickly skimmed through his borrowed mind. He already knew a lot from his previous memory investigations.
In a flash, Su Mo gathered information about this man. His name was Wu Chang Yuan!
Since this man was a Sorcerer Tribe genius, many people would be friendly to him.
A smile played at the corner of Su Mo’s lips and he casually walked over to the man. Perhaps he could find out some information about Hong Qing Xuan.
“Brother Chang Yuan, congratulations on advancing to yet another cultivation level!” Su Mo smiled, grasping Wu Chang Yuan’s hand in a handshake.
“And you are…?” Wu Chang Yuan was surprised and looked at Su Mo with suspicion.
He did not know Wu Chen personally.
“I am Wu Chen!” Su Mo said and laughed heartily..
Wu Chang Yuan thought for a while and suddenly realised, “You must be Wu Yu’er’s fiancé?”
While Wu Chang Yuan did not personally know Wu Chen, he did know the beautiful Wu Yu’er and had heard of her partner.
“Right!” Su Mo nodded his head.
“What do you want?” Wu Chang Yuan asked lightly, dropping his previously stern look.
According to Wu Chang Yuan’s knowledge, Wu Chen was someone without much family prestige. Although his cultivation was high, he was not a genius and he was about ten years older than himself.
“Uh… I heard that Brother Su sustained injuries from the Firmament World Training. I came to see if you are okay!” Su Mo asked, thinking quickly in at attempt to gather information.
“Humph! Thanks for your concern.” Hearing Su Mo mention the Firmament World Training, Wu Chang Yuan’s expression turned cold.
This was as embarrassing to Wu Chang as it was to the entire Sorcerer Tribe.
The whole group of geniuses from the Sorcerer Tribe had been killed so devastatingly by a single native there. The training had become the laughing stock for their tribe.
With this, Wu Chang Yuan walked by himself to a isolated space, sat down cross-legged, and waited for a cultivation room.
“Brother Chang Yuan, rest assured! You will definitely be able to seek your revenge!”
Su Mo once again went up to Wu Chang Yuan and sat down cross legged in front of him. He continued, “With our tribe’s strength, we can definitely find that Su Mo soon and then kill him mercilessly!”
“Ahh! It is a pity that I cannot kill that despicable man myself!”
Wu Chang Yuan’s face filled with hatred and he continued, “If that despicable man were to come up in front of me now, I would kill him with one move!”
Hearing this, Su Mo snickered silently. If he wasn’t within the Sorcerer Tribe territory, he would only need a single finger to kill this man.
In his eyes, this man’s strength was worth less than shit. He could only brag here.
“Of course, with your increased abilities now, killing this man would be a piece of cake!” Su Mo responded, feeling discontent yet completely expressionless.
Su Mo saw that Wu Chang Yuan had fallen silent and did not want to the conversation to end. He quickly added, “This man will not be able to escape our hands and he will die soon. Given that our tribe has slaughtered everyone from Firmament World, we have already taken revenge for our nine hundred men!”
“Revenge, my ass. Those lives on Firmament World are worth nothing. If there were ten times more, or even a hundred times more lives, they would still not amount to the lives of the geniuses we lost!” Wu Chang Yuan shot back in a disdainful tone.
Su Mo was instantly filled with rage and vengeance towards this man. The lives on Firmament World are worth nothing? The Sorcerer Tribe men are superior?
He wanted to rip the man before him to shreds!
Nonetheless, Su Mo quickly regained his composure and pushed aside his vengeful, murderous thoughts. In this Sorcerer Tribe territory, it was best to remain logical and calm.
“Definitely!” Su Mo agreed, lightly nodding his head.
“Ahh! It has been so long already. Where could this despicable man be hiding that we can’t find his whereabouts, even now?” Wu Chang Yuan sighed.
Su Mo’s eyes brightened and he smiled, “I heard that Su Mo has a friend who has been taken hostage by Wu Tian Yu, maybe we can use this woman to lure him out!”
“Humph! What do you know! Sister Wu Xian and two other tribe members are with that man, how can we threaten him with her?” Wu Chang Yuan coldly replied.
Su Mo nodded his head in realization. He casually asked, “Then what has happened to that girl now? She wouldn’t have been directly killed by Wu Tian Yu, right?”
“You don’t know this?” Wu Chang Yuan looked at Su Mo, his face full of shock.
Everyone knew this already, Wu Chang thought incredulously, but this guy has no clue?
“Hehe! I have been isolating myself in cultivation and am not too sure about this matter!” Su Mo said with a smile.
“Oh, I see!”
With this information, Wu Chang Yuan no longer harboured any suspicion. Either way, there was no way he could have imagined that Su Mo would come to Black Gold City and be standing right in front of him.
“That girl is a … She has already been taken away by the Grand Priest!” Wu Chang Yuan explained.
“What?” Su Mo’s heart jumped upon hearing these words. Qing Xuan has actually been taken away by the Grand Priest?
His heart immediately sank back down. The Grand Priest of the Sorcerer Tribe was an expert in the Martial Sage Realm. How could Su Mo possibly rescue Qing Xuan when she is in his clutches?
“What’s wrong with you?” Wu Chang Yuan saw the sudden change in Su Mo’s expression and was slightly shocked.
Su Mo immediately regained his composure and calmed himself down. Looking around him, he carefully asked, “I heard that the girl has a unique constitution, she is a stunning beauty and also happens to be a very good lover. Perhaps the Grand Priest wants her because of this?”
Observing Su Mo’s stealthy motions, Wu Chang Yuan couldn’t help but break into a smile. Shaking his head, he said, “You better not talk so much nonsense. If the Grand Priest hears this, you wouldn’t even survive with ten lives!”
“Hehe! I was only curious!” Su Mo awkwardly laughed.
“Curiosity killed the cat!” Wu Chang Yuan replied.
Shaking his head, Wu Chang Yuan once again looked Su Mo up and down. He warned, “You have no family support and no power. You will get into trouble sooner or later if you don’t contain your curiosity!
Wu Chang Yuan then closed his eyes, sat quietly, and calmed his breath.
Su Mo’s face fell and his heart sank. He returned once again to his familiar state of disappointment.
He knew that he was completely powerless to save Qing Xuan from the Grand Priest.
