Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
Numerous disciples gathered in the outer mansion, their eyes fixed on Estate Master Du.
Everyone was waiting to see Estate Master Du’s reaction.
If he didn’t agree, Su Mo and Taishi Jue would have to let the matter rest, however reluctant they were.
However, if Estate Master Du agreed to let the two settle it amongst themselves, then the situation would turn interesting.
Su Mo and Taishi Jue were both looking at Estate Master Du, anticipating his reaction.
A hand lightly patted Su Mo’s shoulder, causing Su Mo to whip his head around. Gu Tianyi beside Su Mo shook his head, showing his disapproval of the matter.
In Gu Tianyi’s eyes, Su Mo’s actions in provoking Taishi Jue did not have any pros.
After all, regardless of who won or lost, there would be trouble.
If Su Mo lost, he would be killed. If he won, there would be a lot of hatred towards him.
Su Mo gave a look of reassurance towards Gu Tianyi. He knew that Gu Tianyi was worried.
However, Su Mo didn’t act rashly. Killing Taishi Jue would be safer for him in the long run.
Grandmaster Huo Yuan stared at Su Mo. He didn’t interfere and left the matter in Estate Master Du’s hands.
Grandmaster Huo Yuan felt helpless towards Su Mo. This could be a trial that Su Mo had to undergo!
After a long moment of silence, Estate Master Du sighed and asked, “how do you want to settle it?”
“Fight to the death!” Without hesitation, Su Mo answered.
Taishi Jue did not answer immediately. Instead, he turned around and looked at the 6 other Rank 4 Martial Honorables beside him and said, “The seven of us will fight with Su Mo!”
The moment Taishi Jue’s words fell, everyone wore looks of disbelief and shock.
Seven people against Su Mo?
This was bullying the minority with the majority, and Taishi Jue had dared to say it.
Estate Master Du’s face darkened, he was also at a loss for words after hearing Taishi Jue’s proposal.
“Taishi Jue, you really are daring!”
Gu Tianyi scoffed before he challenged, “How about 200 of us fight against you?”
“You…!” Taishi Jue’s face fell but he had no way to counter Gu Tianyi.
Seven against one was indeed unfair towards Su Mo. However, Taishi Jue had no confidence that he could beat Su Mo in a one-to-one battle.
“Su Mo, are you willing to fight against the seven of us?” Taishi Jue did not argue with Gu Tianyi but he turned his attention to Su Mo.
Everyone was speechless. What was Taishi Jue thinking! How could Su Mo agree to fight against seven people by himself?
Right at that moment, Su Mo suddenly agreed and he nodded his head in a serious manner.
Everyone was utterly shocked, how could Su Mo actually agree to it?
This was not what anyone had expected. Su Mo dared to fight against Taishi Jue and the other 6 people?
He was too confident!
Gu Tianyi, Ren Yundu, Instructor Mu Li and those who were more familiar with Su Mo instantly frowned.
Was Su Mo confident in winning against the seven of them by himself?
“Hehe, how daring!” Taishi Jue laughed as a cold smile stretched across his face. Then, he turned towards Estate Master Du and waited for the Estate Master Du’s reply.
Estate Master Du was emotionless but he nodded his head a short while later and said, “If that is the case, than the both of you should settle it between yourselves!”
Taishi Jue jumped for joy. Estate Master Du had agreed to let him fight against Su Mo.
With the seven of them working together, killing Su Mo would be a piece of cake.
Taishi Lin coldly sneered. Although Taishi Jue wasn’t that much stronger than him, the Seven Stars Demon Subduing Array was incredibly strong and it could kill Su Mo.
However, Su Mo had a strange devouring power and Taishi Lin had to warn Taishi Jue.
At that point, regardless of whether it was instructors of disciples, everyone was shocked that the Estate Master Du had agreed to the battle. They would be watching an interesting scene soon.
On the surface, Taishi Jue seemed like he would win indefinitely. However, Su Mo’s confidence cast doubt on this theory and he might really defeat the seven of them.
“Su Mo, let’s go! Head up to the starry sky!” Taishi Jue smiled.
Su Mo remained calm and he did not reply but stared at Taishi Lin and said, “Taishi Lin, you join the fight too!”
“What?” Taishi Lin was shocked and his eyes immediately narrowed. Su Mo wanted him to join the fight!
At that moment, silence filled the outer mansion as everyone stared in disbelief at Su Mo.
Was fighting one against seven not enough? Su Mo actually wanted Taishi Jue to partake in the battle, as well to fight one against eight!
This has really reached the point of arrogance!
Many people were aware of Su Mo’s talents and fighting strength. However, to fight against Taishi Jue and Taishi Lin while only being a Rank 3 Martial Honorable was absurd!
Even Estate Master Du frowned. Taishi Jue wasn’t weak, and adding in Taishi Lin and the other 6 people would be equivalent to the strength of a Rank 7 Martial Honorable.
Su Mo’s actions seemed outrageous and it made Estate Master Du feel that Su Mo was rash.
Gu Tianyi, Grandmaster Huo Yuan and Instructor Mu Li had their faces turned cold. Su Mo was always that confident.
Although they did feel that Su Mo was being too arrogant, they recalled how Su Mo had time and again exceeded their expectations and performed a miracle. Hence, their hearts were not filled with anticipation for another miracle that Su Mo was going to create.
“Outrageous!” Taishi Jue’s face was as dark as water. Su Mo’s challenge made him feel ashamed.
Su Mo getting Taishi Lin to join in the fight was indirectly saying that Su Mo had disregarded Taishi Jue.
However, this arrangement was also good. If Taishi Lin joined, Taishi Jue would be more confident of winning.
“Do you dare to, or not?” Su Mo looked at the blank-faced Taishi Lin and asked again.
Taishi Lin came to his senses and he glanced slightly at Taishi Jue to see him nodding his head. Then, he said, “Since you want to die, I will not reject you!”
In Taishi Lin’s opinion, Su Mo’s power was not that much stronger than his. With Taishi Jue and the others, Taishi Lin did not fear fighting Su Mo.
However, Su Mo’s defensive strength was really terrifying. At the gates, Su Mo could actually block his Spiritual Sword Attack. Average attacks would not destroy him and they had to use ultimate attacks to have a hope of killing Su Mo.
“Since that is the case, then let’s go!”
Su Mo nodded his head and stomped down, hard. His body shot through the firmament like a sharp arrow.
Taishi Lin and the 7 other people exchanged looks before they quickly chased after Su Mo and rushed up to the sky.
Following which, the large group of Shenwu Academy disciples and instructors flew up to watch the match.
The large, innumerable crowd was like a large wave that rolled through the sky. Quickly, they shot through the Nine Heavens atmosphere of Star Guzhou and entered the starry sky.
Su Mo stood tall in the dark, ominous starry sky opposite Taishi Jue, Taishi Lin and the 6 other disciples of the Taishi Family.
Without any further exchange of words, auras, energy and killing intent surged out of the 9 people as they prepared to fight.
More than 10,000 Shenwu Academy disciples and the small group of instructors hovered around the nine people within a few dozen kilometers as they stared intently at the scene.
