Chapter 1598: Senior Li Is Dead!
“I hope so!”
Sage-to-be Zhen Gu nodded his head slightly upon hearing Feng Guang’s words. An exasperated sigh escaped him.
“Elder Zhen Gu, don’t forget about the 10,000 Upper Spiritual Crystals bet!”
Elder Ma of the Empty Sky Sect immediately reminded Sage-to-be Zhen Gu upon hearing the conversation between Sage-to-be Zhen Gu and Feng Guang.
He wanted to shame Sage-to-be Zhen Gu completely. When everyone came out of the Ancient Demon’s Cemetery later, the True Path Sect would not only lose their genius Su Mo, they would also need to hand over 10,000 Upper Spiritual Crystals. Elder Ma was already in high anticipation.
“I won’t forget about it!” Sage-to-be Zhen Gu coldly said. 10,000 Upper Spiritual Crystals was something that he could afford.
“That’s good!” Elder Ma immediately sneered.
Right at that moment, bright light flashed through the sky, and a figure in a white robe dashed through the gateway.
As the crowd focused their eyes on the figure, they saw Leng Xie.
After Leng Xie had flown out of the gateway, he lowered himself onto the ground beside Elder Yin Ze.
“Hm?” The crowd looked at Leng Xie and was immediately surprised. Leng Xie’s face was very pale and it was obvious that he had been injured.
Who had injured Leng Xie?
Could it be some demonic creature in the Ancient Demon’s Cemetery?
Many elders were puzzling over what had happened.
“You are injured?” Elder Yin Ze looked at Leng Xie and asked with his eyebrows furrowed together.
“Nothing much, I just overexerted myself!”
Leng Xie shook his head and brushed aside the concerns. He would not tell others personally that he had lost to Su Mo.
Then he took out a regenerative Divine Pill and swallowed it as he said to Elder Yin Ze, “Elder Yin Ze, I will head back first!”
With that, Leng Xie turned and flew off into the horizon without even waiting for Elder Yin Ze’s reply.
Leng Xie didn’t have the audacity to remain on the mountain anymore and hence he left straightaway.
He did intend for Elder Yin Ze to seek revenge for him. That was a completely impossible thing.
He did not have any reason to ask Elder Yin Ze to help him.
After all, Leng Xie couldn’t tell Elder Yin Ze that he was trying to get Su Mo’s treasures by having a contest where he lost eventually!
“Su Mo, wait and see! I will make sure you kneel before me and beg for my mercy one day!” As he flew off, he roared out in rage.
He would never, ever let Su Mo off.
At that point, he was regretting that he used the Sun Moon Holy Palm. If the Sun Moon Holy Palm had not sapped his Dark Force dry, how could he have lost?
At the same time, Leng Xie was too careless, he had not even used a single strong weapon.
It wasn’t that he hadn’t managed to obtain strong weapons. He had been in seclusion trying to cultivate and raise his rank over the past few years. The past weapons he had used would disintegrate quickly in battle and he did not have the chance to obtain strong weapons.
Furthermore, he took the Ancient Demon’s Cemetery trial to be a casual matter and he had not expected that he would meet a demonic talent like Su Mo.
Once he had returned to the tribe, he would immediately find a strong Sage Class Weapon. With his status, it would be perfectly easy to obtain one.
With a Sage Class Weapon in his hands, he would not lose to Su Mo.
Elder Yin Ze and the group of elders from the other superpowers were puzzled as they looked at Leng Xie’s disappearing figure. They did not know why Leng Xie was acting that way.
However, the group did not ponder the matter for long. Once the disciples in the Ancient Demon’s Cemetery came out, they would know what happened.
Shoosh shoosh shoosh!!
They didn’t have to wait long. Around 2 to 3 breaths later, a large group of disciples flew out of the gateway and lowered themselves to the ground.
Elder Ma and Elder Hu from the Empty Sky Sect stared unblinkingly at the gateway. They would know very soon whether Su Mo was dead.
They were hoping not to see any sign of Su Mo. If Su Mo didn’t come out, that would mean that Su Mo was dead.
Sage-to-be Zhen Gu and the other elders of the True Path Sect stared intently at the gateway as they prayed for Su Mo to appear.
Even the calm Elder Yin Ze focused his eyes on the gateway as he tried to deduce the outcome of the contest.
The other elders of the other superpowers similarly stared hard at the gateway.
Shoosh shoosh shoosh!
In the span of a breath, a thousand disciples of the superpowers rushed out of the gateway and the gateway space immediately quietened down. No one else appeared to exit the gateway.
At that point, Su Mo had not appeared yet.
“Ha ha ha~~!”
Elder Ma immediately burst out into laughter as he smirked and Sage-to-be Zhen Gu and mocked, “Zhen Gu, Su Mo did not appear. I was right! He is definitely dead!”
Elder Ma was completely gleeful. Su Mo was definitely dead, otherwise he would have appeared.
Elder Hu also started to laugh sinisterly.
On the other hand, Sage-to-be Zhen Gu was frowning. Su Mo really didn’t make it?
That wasn’t right!
Sage-to-be Zhen Gu’s eyes scanned the mountain. Not only did Su Mo not appear, Li Hentian did not appear either. Furthermore, it seems like Yun Youyou was missing too.
As he thought of that, Sage-to-be Zhen Gu calmly said, “Li Hentian has also not appeared!”
Elder Ma was taken aback and he immediately scanned the group of Empty Sky Sect disciples around him. Instantly, his face turned solemn.
Li Hentian truly did not appear and there were more than 30 Empty Sky Sect disciples who were missing as well.
Elder Ma’s face instantly darkened. He had only thought of Su Mo and not Li Hentian.
Elder Yin Ze’s face was also grave. He was not worried for Su Mo or Li Hentian, but he was puzzled over why Yun Youyou was missing.
Yun Youyou was a disciple of Grand Elder Jin Yang. Nothing should have happened to her.
“Where is Li Hentian?” Elder Ma glared at the group of Empty Sky Sect disciples around him and shouted.
Right at that point, two figures rushed through the gateway.
The group of elders focused their eyes on the two people and their eyes instantly widened in shock. That was because the two figures were Su Mo and Yun Youyou.
Su Mo actually hadn’t died and had successfully escaped!
Su Mo and Yun Youyou flew out of the gateway and headed for their respective superpowers.
The large stone in Sage-to-be Zhen Gu’s heart was finally placed down after he saw Su Mo. A smile stretched across his face.
The other True Path Sect elders were also beaming with joy.
“Elder Zhen Gu!” Su Mo landed beside Sage-to-be Zhen Gu and cupped his fists towards the Sage-to-be. When Su Mo was in the Ancient Demon’s Cemetery, he had greatly relied on the Holy Sword Sage-to-be Zhen Gu lent to him. Without it, his journey would not have been as smooth.
“Thank goodness you are out!” Sage-to-be Zhen Gu smiled as he patted Su Mo’s shoulders and nodded his head.
Then, Sage-to-be Zhen Gu’s eyes whipped around as he sneered at Elder Ma not far away from him.
Elder Ma’s face was pitch black and he glared menacingly at Su Mo. Anger was boiling in him.
Su Mo had actually escaped?
How could that be?
How did he escape? What was Li Hentian doing?
Elder Ma was fuming over the fact that Su Mo wasn’t dead. Not only had their plan failed, he would now have to hand over 10,000 Middle Spiritual Crystals.
“Elder Ma, Senior Li is dead!”
Right at that moment, an Empty Sky Sect disciple’s voice rang out as he answered Elder Ma’s earlier question.
