Chapter 1374: Get Through The Obstructions
Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
The Grand Priest was confident that as long as Su Mo went to the True Sage Territory, he would have no problem with getting him killed.
When Grand Master Huoyuan heard that, a smile broke out on his face and he said, “Grand Priest Wu Lun, can we come to an agreement that regardless of the outcome at the True Sage Territory, you will forget about the bad blood between Su Mo and your Sorcerer Tribe?”
“Oh?” The Grand Priest looked at Grand Master Huoyuan and saw that he was smiling faintly and confidently which puzzled him.
Does Su Mo possess some powerful trump cards? Is he not afraid of the peerless geniuses who are at Rank 9 Martial Emperor Realm?
The Grand Priest pondered for a while. Although there was such a possibility, it is impossible for Su Mo to be invincible among those who are at the Martial Emperor Realm.
If there was a great disparity in the cultivation, there would be no way to make up for it. Even if one possessed some powerful treasures, he would not be able to display much force.
“All right. I give you my word that after the trip to the True Sage Territory, my tribe will forget about the bad blood that we have with Su Mo!”
The Grand Priest nodded after a while. There was nothing for him to have scruples about. Even if they did not manage to kill Su Mo at the True Sage Territory, they could always do it secretly in the future.
“That’s great! We shall take it that this issue has been settled!” Grand Master Huoyuan smiled and nodded.
Su Mo heaved a sigh of relief. He had gotten out of the perilous situation this day but the journey to the True Sage Territory would be filled with danger.
The Grand Priest looked sharply at Su Mo and said, “However, I have one condition in order for us to carry out this agreement.”
“What condition?” Su Mo asked.
“Su Mo, my successor, Wu Xian, and two other geniuses from my tribe have been captured by you. Hand them over to me! If any mishap befalls them, not only do you have to die, your Shenwu Academy will have to bear the consequences of it!” The Grand Priest said in a petrifying voice.
“Su Mo, have you captured them?” Estate Master Du asked.
Su Mo’s expression turned cold. Wu Xian and the other two knew many of his secrets. If he released them, it would do him much harm.
However, he changed his mind quickly. Other than his top secret, the rest of his secrets had already been revealed and thus there was nothing for him to fear.
Su Mo waved his hand and shadows started to flicker. Wu Xian and the other two who had been captured by him several years earlier appeared in the main hall.
Su Mo had no choice but to release them. It was fortunate that he had not killed them or he would be in deep trouble this day!
When Wu Xian and the other two appeared, they were stunned. They did not know why Su Mo had released them but in the next instant, they saw the Grand Priest in the main hall.
The three of them shouted and their voices were filled with joy and excitement.
Wu Xian and the other two had been held captive by Su Mo for several years. When they saw the Grand Priest after they had been released, they thought that it was an illusion and they were dreaming.
The three of them rubbed their eyes and finally realized that they were not dreaming. The Grand Priest was there to save them!
“Great grandfather!” Tears immediately gushed out of Wu Xian’s eyes and she released all of the grievances that she had suffered.
She had been pampered and never suffered any grievances until her capture, and thus she felt humiliated!
She had already lost hope but the situation had changed suddenly.
The eyes of the two geniuses from the Sorcerer Tribe turned red. Previously, they had never left the Heavenly Underworld Star and had been living a carefree life in the Tribe. This was a great blow to them and they would never forget it.
“Everything is fine! Come over!” The Grand Priest heaved a sigh of relief when he saw that Wu Xian was fine. He waved his sleeve and swept them toward his side.
When Wu Xian and the other two saw Su Mo at the back, they gritted their teeth at him with animosity.
“Great grandfather, kill him. Kill Su Mo!” Wu Xian shouted angrily.
“Xian’er, don’t worry. He has only slightly more than two months to live!”
The Grand Priest shook his head and immediately turned to look at Estate Master Du and Grand Master Huoyuan and said in a deep voice, “Estate Master Du, Grand Master Huoyuan, I hope that in two months time Su Mo will go to the True Sage Territory. If he is not there, our tribe will not let the matter rest!”
“Grand Priest Wu Lun, please be assured that Su Mo will be there!” Estate Master Du said.
“All right! We will make a move now!” The Grand Priest nodded and with a flash, he brought Wu Xian and the other two out of the main hall in a shadow and left Shenwu Academy.
The main hall was silent. Estate Master Du glanced at Su Mo and then looked at Grand Master Huoyuan and asked softly, “Grand Master Huoyuan, does Su Mo have the ability to defend himself from the geniuses from the Sorcerer Tribe?”
In actual fact, Estate Master Du shared the same thought as the Grand Priest and believed that Su Mo did not have the ability to fend against the geniuses from the Sorcerer Tribe at the True Sage Territory.
There were many geniuses in the Sorcerer Tribe and many of them had been listed on the True Sage Board.
Moreover, one of the geniuses from the Sorcerer Tribe had been ranked within the top 10 on the Board. His cultivation was at Rank 9 Martial Emperor Realm, which was beyond Su Mo’s ability to handle!
“I have no idea!” Grand Master Huoyuan shook his head.
When Estate Master Du heard that, he was stunned. He had thought that Grand Master Huoyuan had behaved calmly earlier because he had faith in Su Mo.
Su Mo was shocked as well and he felt unhappy. Although Grand Master Huoyuan did not have confidence in him, he had gone ahead with the agreement.
However, although Su Mo was unhappy, he was still grateful to Grand Master Huoyuan. If not for him, Su Mo would have been in serious trouble this day.
Grand Master Huoyuan sighed and turned to Su Mo. With a heavy heart, he said “Su Mo, I have opened up the way for you. You will have to depend on yourself to get through the obstructions!”
“Elder, don’t worry. I have no problem handling those martial artists who are at the Martial Emperor Realm!” Su Mo nodded solemnly and he was not the least worried.
Currently, he was cultivating an Honorable Cultivation Skill. After the Dark Force merged into his body, his strength would be enhanced tremendously.
Moreover, his cultivation was well-grounded. Before he went to the True Sage Territory, he would bring his cultivation up to Rank 6 Martial Emperor Realm, which was one rank higher than his current cultivation. With the merging of the properties from the Middle Honorable Cultivation Skill, he should be well equipped for the True Sage Territory.
Grand Master Huoyuan nodded and was pleased. In order to become a master, one had to go through tough trainings and find a way out of such predicaments!
A powerful person not only had to depend on his talent but he must also be able to get through these kinds of obstructions and have a breakthrough.
“Su Mo, since Grand Master Huoyuan thinks highly of you, you must not let him down!” Estate Master Du said and smiled at Su Mo.
“I will not disappoint Elder Huoyuan and Estate Master!” Su Mo said.
“Great!” Estate Master Du nodded. He thought highly of Su Mo as well and felt that Su Mo had a great future ahead of him.
“Estate Master, since this matter has been settled, I will make a move first!”
Grand Master Huoyuan said as he stood up and cupped his fist at Estate Master Du.
“All right. Grand Master Huoyuan, please take care!” Estate Master Du nodded.
Grand Master Huoyuan then brought Su Mo out of the main hall and returned to Huo Yuan Peak.
