In the morning the sun peeped through the clouds.
Su Mo changed into a long, light green coloured robe and walked out of his room.
It was the day of the fight meet.
As he walked out of his room, he realised that Feng Guang was already waiting for him in the garden. Feng Guang had returned from the Imperial Pagoda the previous night.
“Su Mo, let’s hurry. Everyone is already waiting outside the door of the building!” Feng Guang called out.
Su Mo nodded his head and followed Feng Guang out of the garden.
“Su Mo! You can go and watch the Fight Meet today and gain greater exposure by observing the godly talents of the seven superpowers. This will be a really good boost for you in your future cultivation journey!” As he walked, Feng Guang said.
“Mm!” Su Mo rigidly nodded his head. However, his mind was wandering off thinking about Qing Xuan.
“The top talents of the seven superpowers are unrivalled in strength and almost on par with a typical Rank 1 Martial Honourable. They are definitely better than anything you can imagine!” Feng Guang continued.
“Mm!” Su Mo nodded his head thoughtlessly as he couldn’t be bothered to argue with Feng Guang.
The two of them moved fast and they quickly arrived outside.
At that moment, numerous True Path Sect disciples and elders had already gathered outside and the remaining disciples were streaming out of the front doors.
15 minutes later, over 200 disciples 10 elders had all gathered outside.
“Alright, lets go!”
Sage-to-be Zhen Gu glanced at the crowd. Seeing that everyone had arrived, he beckoned the group to follow him.
Naturally, the place the fight meet was going be was not at Sun Moon City. This is because fights between martial artists beyond the Martial Emperor rank were very destructive and it would destroy the entire city if it took place there.
Even if there was a protective array around the battle arena, the space was limited and there would have been many constraints.
The crowd weaved through the streets and finally arrived before a magnificent palace. The palace was a few dozen feet tall and stood over an area a thousand feet wide. It was very grand and massive.
At that moment, large crowds of Sun Moon Tribe members began streaming into the palace.
Looking at the doors of the palace, Su Mo’s heart jumped in realisation. Dense array forces flowed out of the doors of the palace. The inside of the palace was probably a virtual space built out of arrays.
The crowd did not stop and followed each other into the palace like a school of fish.
As they entered the main doors, the scene before them changed and they arrived at a virtual space.
Su Mo raised his head upwards and saw a large fighting ground above him. It was so vast that he couldn’t see the end of it with his eyes.
This fighting ground was probably built by the forces and energies of arrays as it was a virtual platform.
In the middle of the fighting ground was a battle arena that was close to 20 kilometres long. White coloured rays of lights could be seen glowing from within.
Stands that looked like large flights of stairs lined the four corners of the battle arena where the steps upon steps of it reached out to over 10 metres long.
Almost every stand could fit over a million spectators, and gave off an awe-inspiring feeling.
Right at that moment, around a million martial artists had already squeezed into the east stand of the battle arena. Loud eruptions of voices rose from there and it was very chaotic.
The spectators were Sun Moon Tribe members from Sun Moon City and they had arrived early to select their seats before waiting for the fight meet to begin.
The north stand of the battle arena was completely empty. It was reserved for the inner tribe members of Sun Moon tribe.
The southern stand was sparsely occupied with only a few hundred people seated at it. They were the people from the seven superpowers who had come down as spectators.
Tribe members from the Black Flame Tribe, Shining Spiritual Tribe, Roaring Sky Wolf Tribe and the other superpowers had yet to arrive.
Sage-to-be Zhen Gu led the crowd to fly towards the southern stands. This southern stand was the stand where the participants of the fight meet would wait.
Then, the True Path Sect disciples slowly took their places on the stands.
“Greetings to Sage-to-be Zhen Gu!”
A tall, skinny middle aged man from the Black Flame Tribe smiled as he greeted Sage-to-be Zhen Gu. Yet, a mocking flash was in his eyes.
There were occasionally conflicts between the Black Flame Tribe and the True Path Sect. Not only did the lower disciples from both parties not get along, the higher ups did not have a good relationship with each other either.
“Sage-to-be Zhen Gu!”
“It seems like Senior Zhen Gu’s cultivation had improved again!”
Two middle aged men from the Shining Spiritual Tribe and the Roaring Sky Wolf Tribe greeted Sage-to-be Zhen Gu. Among them, one was short, thin and looked like a monkey while the other was large in size and looked like a ferocious beast.
“Sage-to-be Yan Tang, Sage-to-be Ling Yang, Sage-to-be Sen Lang!”
Sage-to-be Zhen Gu lightly cupped his fists towards the other three individuals, greeting them. The three of them were leaders from the Black Flame Tribe, Shining Spiritual Tribe and the Roaring Sky Wolf Tribe respectively, and all were Sage-to-bes.
For this rank of fight meet, the Martial Sages of the superpowers wouldn’t typically attend. Instead, the Sage-to-bes were left to lead the group of disciples.
Su Mo lifted his gaze and scanned through the group of tribes members from the three superpowers. There were quite a few of them from each superpower. Just the disciples from the Shining Spiritual Tribe alone numbered over 200, while the other two tribes had over 300 disciples.
Su Mo saw Yan Huo and Mo Lang on the stands. However, the two did not seem to be the strongest disciples of their tribes. Based solely on their auras, there were over 5 others who were even stronger than the two of them.
Of course, their actual fighting strengths could not be judged purely on auras. Afterall, some martial artists displayed their auras while others hid them.
As for the Shining Spiritual Tribe members, they were even harder to comprehend. Their powers originated from special abilities and talents unique to their tribe.
The Shining Spiritual Tribesmen all had flash abilities that were mysterious and powerful.
At that point, the entire fighting ground had erupted into a great uproar due to the arrival of the True Path Sect members. The waves of voices from the Sun Moon Tribe members were loud and disruptive.
“The True Path Sect members have arrived. We are left with the Empty Sky Sect, Imperial Sword Faction and the Thundercloud Birds Tribe who have yet to arrive!”
“There doesn’t seem to be any godly talent amongst the True Path Sect disciples!”
“Only Lu Gang, Lin Huang and Tang Gu from the True Path Sect have a thread of hope of entering the top ten. The others are not worth mentioning!”
“The True Path Sect disciples are obviously weaker than the disciples of the other superpowers!”
“Yes. Yan Lan Tian from the Black Flame Tribe, You Lang from the Roaring Sky Wolf Tribe and Ling Feng from the Shining Spiritual Tribe are all godly talents and they will definitely enter the top ten. The True Path Sect doesn’t seem to have any one who can compare to them!”
Numerous voices rose and amassed into waves that swept through the area.
Upon hearing such insults and ignorance, the True Path Sect disciples wore dark looks on their faces.
The feeling of being looked down upon by so many people made them all very displeased.
Lu Gang clenched his fists tightly and mumbled to himself. He was a top talent amongst the True Path Sect key disciples and enjoyed much fame on the Sun Moon Star.
However, he was completely disregarded and underestimated here. How could he tolerate such insults?
On the other hand, the elders of the True Path Sect didn’t seem to be too bothered about it. This is because this scenario had played out before in the previous fight meets and they were already used to it.
“All of you heard it!”
Sage-to-be Zhen Gu opened his mouth as his voice rang through the heads of the True Path Sect disciples. “The lot of you are so looked down upon by the rest. Then you have to stand on your own two feet and win back the glory for yourself and for the sect!”
Hearing his words, the True Path Sect disciples did not speak, instead they all sighed inwardly.
