Chapter 1563: Fight Your Own Battle
“Li Hentian!” Su Mo’s eyebrows jumped as he saw the group of martial artists enter the space. He immediately stopped trying to test the purple-gold insects.
The group of martial artists that had entered were the group of Empty Sky Sect disciples that Li Hentian led.
Did the Empty Sky Sect members finally catch up with him? Killing intent in Su Mo’s heart surged.
At that point, many people’s faces were also scrunched up.
Almost everyone knew that the Empty Sky Sect hated Su Mo to the core and Li Hentian had been looking for Su Mo.
Now that Su Mo had been trapped by Li Hentian in the mountain, no one could predict what would happen next.
“Su Mo, you really are here!”
As everyone had expected, Li Hentian scanned the surroundings after he entered the place and immediately shouted out loud after he spotted Su Mo. With his booming voice, the numerous insects started to buzz.
Li Hentian was elated, he had finally found Su Mo after searching for so long.
Furthermore, this was within the Demon Head Mountain, and as long as Li Hentian blocked the entrance, there was no way for Su Mo to escape.
However, the moment Li Hentain saw Bi Qinghan’s corpse on the ground, his smile disappeared.
That was because there were remnants of Su Mo’s Sword Qi aura around Bi Qinghan’s corpse. Li Hentian didn’t have to think twice to know that it was Su Mo who had killed Bi Qinghan.
“So what if I am here?” Su Mo calmly challenged.
“Hm?” The enraged Li Hentian was cold and as he saw Su Mo’s fearless demeanour, he was slightly surprised.
Then, Li Hentian casually looked at Su Mo. His eyes immediately squinted to a fine line when he realised that Su Mo had broken through to the next realm.
“No wonder you are fearless, you have already broken through to Rank 2 Martial Honorable Realm!” Li Hentian’s face fell into a serious glare. That wasn’t good news for him. The increase in Su Mo’s cultivation rank meant that Su Mo had become stronger and was now harder to kill.
However, as soon as he thought of the Seven-colored Glazed Pagoda on him, Li Hentian relaxed. Even if Su Mo broke through to the next realm, he would still have to die!
The powers of an Upper Sacred Weapon were incredibly strong. In addition to Li Hentian’s own strength, he did not believe that Su Mo would be able to survive.
“Li Hentian, you want to kill me and I want to kill you too. Let us let our strengths speak for themselves.” Su Mo’s face was cold as a gold ray of light shot out from his arm and the Golden Holy Sword appeared in his hands.
Although the Golden Holy Sword that Sage-to-be Zhen Gu gave him was a lower Sacred Weapon, which was far weaker than an Upper Sacred Weapon, the Golden Holy Sword was much stronger than Su Mo’s own Stone Sword.
Li Hentian immediately scoffed as he saw Su Mo’s actions. Then, he turned and ordered the Empty Sky Sect disciples, “Stand guard at the entrance and make sure Su Mo doesn’t escape!”
This time, Li Hentian was determined to kill Su Mo. He had to take all precautions and ensure that Su Mo did not escape.
“Yes, Senior Li!”
“Senior Li, rest assured. He won’t be able to escape!”
“This time, Su Mo definitely will not escape!”
The Empty Sky Sect disciples assured Li Hentian one after another. There were over 20 of them and with their numbers it was easy to block the entrance.
Previously, they had had a total of 28 people when they entered the mountain. Unfortunately, two of them had died from the attack from the insects.
Therefore, the Empty Sky Sect disciples were even more hateful towards Su Mo. If it wasn’t for the fact that they were chasing after Su Mo, those two fellow sect members wouldn’t have died!
The other people in the wide space were also shocked. This time, Su Mo was trapped in the mountain and it was highly likely that Su Mo would die.
The True Path Sect disciples were also present at the scene. Aside from Su Mo, there were close to 20 other True Path Sect disciples in the wide space.
Li Hentian did not disregard the other True Path Sect members as his eyes fell upon Yi Wei.
“Yi Wei, the Empty Sky Sect have a grudge to settle with Su Mo. I hope you won’t interfere in our fight!” Li Hentian subtly warned. If Yi Wei did not interfere, Li Hentian had absolute confidence that he would defeat Su Mo. If Yi Wei or the other True Path Sect members interfered, Li Hentian’s confidence would waver.
After all, once the battle begin, it would be a scene of chaos and Su Mo could take the opportunity to escape.
Li Hentian’s eyes were shining brightly. As long as Yi Wei did not interfere, the other True Path Sect members would not interfere either.
Hence, everything relied on Yi Wei’s opinion.
Yi Wei’s face was solemn and her internal conflict was reflected through her eyes.
By logic, since she was the first ranked pro-disciple of the True Path Sect, she would have to be responsible if anyone wanted to kill her fellow sect disciple.
However, Su Mo was arrogant and he did not listen to her warnings when he killed Bi Qinghan mercilessly. This made her very displeased.
Yi Wei could not decide on her stand.
The other True Path Sect disciples were also looking at Yi Wei intently. None of them wanted to interfere in the battle as they all felt that Su Mo had to be responsible for the own mass he had created.
However, if Senior Yi Wei decided to interfere, they would not sit and do nothing.
The other members of the other superpowers silently shook their heads as they saw Yi Wei’s indecision. Su Mo had gotten into a conflict with Yi Wei previously. How could Yi Wei interfere now!
This Su Mo had virtually shot himself in the foot. If he didn’t make trouble for himself, he wouldn’t be in such a dangerous situation!
Su Mo was taken aback by Yi Wei’s actions. He had just offended Yi Wei and he thought that Yi Wei would definitely not interfere. Who could imagine that Yi Wei would not make an immediate decision to stay out of the fight, but was instead hesitating.
This made Su Mo fond of Yi Wei.
However, he did not need the True Path Sect disciples’ help. Most of the True Path Sect disciples were weak and if they interfered in Su Mo’s battle against Li Hentian, they would definitely be killed.
“Li Hentian, let’s settle our grudge between the two of us!” Su Mo glared at Li Hentian and shouted.
“Oh?” Li Hentian was surprised. Su Mo’s words meant that he did not require anyone’s help.
Yi Wei’s eyebrows knitted together. She had already decided to help Su Mo but she didn’t expect that Su Mo would be so confident that he rejected her help.
“Su Mo, since you are so confident, fight your own battle!” Yi Wei lightly said before she retreated backward.
The crowd was shocked. Su Mo was so confident that he wanted to take Li Hentian and the other Empty Sky Sect disciples by himself.
Shoosh shoosh shoosh!!!
Many people retreated back to a far corner and prepared to watch the fight.
Since Su Mo was going to battle with Li Hentian, the onlookers had no way to obtain the medulla of the Demon’s Brain for now. After all, the wide space they were in was only about ten thousand feet wide.
With the two of their strengths, their exchanges would be incredibly strong and hence, everyone had to take extra caution.
There were even those who were more wary as they wondered if the battle would disrupt the Ancient Demon’s Brain.
Perhaps the purple-gold insects on the Ancient Demon’s Brain might attack the two and, at that point, the crowd could take the opportunity to get the medulla.
Quite a few people had thought of this point, that the purple-gold insects would be enraged by the battle. Hence, they stood at the furthest position from the Ancient Demon’s Brain in order to avoid any potential insect attacks.
Lyu Gang sighed to himself as he retreated backward as well. He knew that Su Mo was exceptionally gifted and thus Su Mo was arrogant.
“Su Mo, this time, you will definitely die!” Li Hentian coldly laughed as he reached his hand out. Seven-colored radiance flashed in his palm and the Seven-colored Glazed Pagoda appeared.
Since Yi Wei and the True Path Sect members were not going to interfere, Li Hentian was confident that he could kill Su Mo this time!
