Chapter 1443: Chapter 1443 Go And Watch A Fight?
The sun hung high in the air as dense, sunlit clouds drifted across the sky. The tribe was once again bustling with activity.
Su Mo arrived at a fighting ground on a mountain side. 300-400 disciples had gathered on the grounds that were made entirely of white jade. All of them were Rank 9 Martial Emperors, their auras were dense and their strengths were ordinary.
Su Mo’s arrival caused many disciples to turn their heads to stare at him. This wasn’t because Su Mo’s appearance was different but because he was different from the rest of them.
Those who had gathered here were going to the Sun Moon Tribe to attend the fighting event. Only core disciples who were Rank 9 Martial Emperors had the qualification to be here.
Su Mo’s cultivation rank wasn’t up to standard yet, and as such, he stood out like a sore thumb in the crowd.
“Who is this brat?”
“Is he going to attend the Fight Meet?”
“Probably not right? Is he going to be an onlooker then?”
Looking up and down at Su Mo, the crowd started to chat among themselves. Most of them did not recognise Su Mo and hence, they were all suspicious.
Su Mo scanned through the crowd before he sat down in a corner of the grounds. No one recognised him and he did not know anyone so he did not go and greet the rest of the crowd.
Everyone else on the grounds did not bother too much about Su Mo and after a few moments, they began their casual conversations with their friends.
“The pressure on our True Path Sect is really big for this Fight Meet!”
“Yes! Among the seven superpowers, our True Path Sect is considered weaker. Our geniuses are slightly weaker than the rest of the six superpowers!”
“Especially for the Roaring Sky Wolf Tribe and the Shining Spiritual Tribe, they are going to be a real challenge for us!”
“For this Fight Meet, our sect also had Lin Huang, Lu Gang and a few other geniuses who can go against those godly talents from the other six superpowers!”
A few dozen disciples crowded around on the square in groups, discussing the Fight Meet.
Su Mo was surprised when he heard the discussions of the crowd. It seemed that Lu Gang was a core genius among the True Path Sect.
As for the seven superpowers, Su Mo had also heard that the three of them were regular human tribes, the True Path Sect, Empty Sky Sect, Imperial Sword Faction. Then, there were two unique superpowers who were the Shining Spiritual Tribe and the Black Flame Tribe. Finally there were the two demon superpowers, the Roaring Sky Wolf Tribe and the Thundercloud Bird Tribe.
Honestly speaking, the True Path Sect was one of the weaker existences among the seven superpowers, while the Roaring Sky Wolf Tribe and the Shining Spiritual Tribe were the two strongest.
The rest of the superpowers were on par with each other and the differences in their strengths were minimal. Even if one was weaker than the others, the difference wasn’t large.
Su Mo wasn’t very interested in the superpowers, nor was he interested in those godly geniuses of the superpowers. He was only concerned about being able to meet Qing Xuan this time.
Time passed by slowly and the sun rose, spilling light all over the land and clouds. More people gathered at the grounds, and very soon, over 200 people were there.
Su Mo was slightly surprised by the fact that the strength of the disciples of the True Path Sect was much higher than the Heavenly Underworld Star Sorcerer Tribe.
The Heavenly Underworld Star Sorcerer Tribe didn’t seem to have so many Rank 9 Martial Emperors.
Stomp! Stomp! Stomp!
Right at that moment, heavy footsteps sounded. The tall, burly Lu Gang had arrived.
“Morning Senior Lu!”
“Senior Lu’s aura is so dense, it seems like your strength has increased again!”
Numerous disciples went ahead to greet Lu Gang. Of course, none of them were being overly respectful as they were, after all, all Rank 9 Martial Emperors. It was only Lu Gang’s strength that was higher than theirs.
“Mmph!” Lu Gang casually nodded his head before scanning the crowd. Instantly, his heart jumped as he saw Su Mo, dressed in a blue robe.
Lu Gang laughed coldly. He had not forgotten Su Mo’s arrogant behaviour in the Sect Hall previously where he had been looked down upon.
“Su Mo, what are you doing here? Unless… could it be that you are planning to go and watch the Fight Meet?” Wearing a mocking expression, Lu Gang asked. He did not think that Su Mo was going to participate in the Fight Meet as Su Mo was only a Rank 8 Martial Emperor.
“Why can’t I go if you are going?” Su Mo calmly countered.
“Hehe, you can just go and have a look!” Lu Gang coldy asked. He guessed that Su Mo was probably familiar with some elder who was leading them to the Fight Meet and that was the reason why Su Mo was able to go and watch it.
Su Mo was calm and he not worried about Lu Gang. As long as Lu Gang didn’t provoke him, Su Mo would just mind his business. However, if Lu Gang didn’t know his place, then he shouldn’t blame Su Mo for his subsequent actions.
Right at that moment, a range of voices rose from the crowd again as two young men trotted forth.
Among those two young men, one wore a yellow coloured long robe. He was tall and handsome.
The other young man was more muscular and, although he wasn’t as tall and burly as Lu Gang, the aura he gave out was not weaker than Lu Gang’s.
The taller young man among the two was Lin Huang while the more muscular one was Tang Gu.
The two of them were both top talents in the True Path Sect and neither of them were weaker than Lu Gang.
Lin Huang and Tang Gu returned the greetings to the crowd.
Then, Lin Huang looked towards Lu Gang and said in a deep voice, “Lu Gang, this Fight Meet among the seven superpowers is our chance to show our strength, you had better not disappoint us!”
“Humph! For this Fight Meet, I want to see just how strong the geniuses from the other six superpowers are!” Lu Gang wore a confident look. Obviously, he was fully confident in his own strength.
Lin Huang nodded his head. The three of them would probably be the only ones of the True Path Sect who would be able to lift the flag for this Fight Meet.
The crowd continued waiting and after another half an hour, almost 260 people had gathered at the grounds and no one else arrived.
In actual fact, the Rank 9 Marital Emperors of the True Path Sect were not all those who had gathered here. There were also others who did not want to attend the Fight Meet and had shut themselves in for cultivation. Either that, or they had ventured out for training purposes.
A few moments later, the elders of the sect arrived. Around ten elders flew down and landed on the platform. The auras they carried were strong, like large waves that rolled through the seas.
There were both females and males, young and old among these ten over elders. Only one elder had completely white hair with a hunched back and a very skinny body.
“Greetings to the elders! Greetings to Sage-to-be Zhen Gu!”
The disciples on the grounds immediately cupped their hands together to greet the elders. Su Mo followed suit. It seemed that the hunched-back elder was actually a martial sage-to-be.
A sage-to-be meant someone who was very close to breaking through to becoming a Martial Sage. It was the strongest rank below a Martial Sage.
“Mm, everyone rise!” The hunch-backed elder, Sage-to-be Zhen Gu waved his hand.
“He actually came!” Looking at the rest of the elders, Su Mo was surprised. The ill mannered Feng Guang was actually among the group of elders.
Arriving at the scene, Feng Guang recognized Su Mo at a glance and a shocked expression crossed his face. Did Su Mo actually break through to the Rank 9 Martial Emperor Realm?
However, after he had closely observed Su Mo, he sighed with realisation. Su Mo had not broken through. Although Su Mo was at the peak of Rank 8 Martial Emperor, he was still far away from breaking through to the next rank.
Then why did Su Mo come?
Feng Guang was utterly confused. Unless Saint Zhen Xian helped him? Was Su Mo planning to participate in the Fight Meet, or was he going just to gain some experience?
At that moment, Sage-to be Zhen Gu’s eyes were like lightning bolts as they scanned the crowd quickly. Then, he announced in a loud voice, “there is something important about this Fight Mee. I hope that all of you will give it your all and win glory for the True Path Sect at the same time as you win glory for yourself!”
“Yes!” The crowd spoke in unison, their loud voices reverberating through the skies.
Sage-to-be Zhen Gu lightly acknowledged their response before his gaze locked in on Lu Gang, Lin Huang and Tang Gu. In a deep voice, he said, “the three of you are the strongest among all the disciples participating in the Fight Meet. Do not disappoint me!”
“Rest assured Sage-to-be Zhen Gu, I will definitely not disappoint you!” Lu Gang responded first as a dark flash passed through his eyes, showing his absolute confidence.
“We will not disappoint Sage-to-be Zhen Gu!” Lin Huang and Tang Gu also spoke out loud confidently.
“Very good, I will look forward to your performances!”
A slight smile played at Sage-to-be Zhen Gu’s face. In actual fact, there were two other disciples among the core disciples of the True Path Sect who were stronger than Lu Gang, Lin Huang and Tang Gu. However, these two disciples had ventured out to train and did not return at that time.
Hence, the pressure and hopes for this Fight Meet rested on the three other top geniuses, Lin Huang, Lu Gang and Tang Gu.
