Chapter 1645: Sent Flying
Zhu Ying’ s heart was wrenching in shock. The change in aura was a small matter that many secret arts could do so. However, what was going on with his cultivation rank?
At that point, many people had also realized that the current Shangguan Hao was a Rank 3 Martial Honorable.
Zhu Ying did not understand what had happened. However, no matter what, he had to charge Shangguan Hao with his crimes today.
A man of the Eighth Price was trying to be a weed in the Red Dragon Camp, how was that possible?
“Shangguan Hao, our Red Dragon Camp has strict rules. You should know what crime you have committed by disobeying my order, right?” Zhu Ying coldly asked.
“I know. You are going to get rid of my cultivation and throw me to the Imperial Ancestor Army Hall!” Su Mo lightly said.
A cold smile curled Zhu Ying’s lips as he continued, “Since you know, do it yourself!”
At that moment, a large number of martial artists had gathered at the scene. Most of them shook their heads inwardly after they understood what happened.
Many people knew that the Red Dragon Camp mainly belonged to the Third Prince’s men. Zhu Ying was purposely bullying Shangguan Hao as Zhu Ying was the Squadron Leader and he could pressure others with no consequences.
Heng Fei was hovering in mid-air, not far away, as a worried look crossed his face. Su Mo was challenging Zhu Ying and that was the most sensible decision now.
He was well aware that Su Mo was an exceptional talent with outstanding abilities but Heng Fei did not want Su Mo to challenge Zhu Ying.
“Why should I do so?” Su Mo shrugged and asked innocently.
“Hmph, you disobeyed a military order. Do you want me to do it for you then?” Zhu Ying coldly scoffed. He was determined to get rid of Shangguan Hao once and for all that day.
Once that happened, all the 10 squads that he was in charge off would be run by his men.
“What military order?” Su Mo remained expressionless as he lightly asked.
“The Squadron Leader gave you a military order to go on a mission that you refused to accept. Is that not defying my order?” Zhu Ying boomed lightly, wearing a stoic look.
“Sorry but you are not any Squadron Leader in my eyes. You naturally cannot give a military order.” Su Mo started to laugh as a mocking expression crossed his eyes.
“What do you mean?” Zhu Ying questioned as his eyebrows furrowed. A killing intent flashed in his eyes.
“The Squadron Leader has to change and your position should be mine already!” Su Mo laughed.
Su Mo wanted to challenge Zhu Ying and become the Squadron Leader. Once that happened, he didn’t have to worry about being bullied anymore.
“Oh? You are challenging me?” Zhu Ying’s eyes narrowed into a fine line as his eyes glared at Su Mo murderously.
At that point, everyone who heard Su Mo’s words were shocked. No wonder Shangguan Hao was not remorseful over his actions. He thought that he could challenge Zhu Ying already.
However, challenging Zhu Ying was not easy as Zhu Ying was from the Zhu Family and had been participating in military campaigns since young. After many years of blood and sweat, Zhu Ying was very powerful.
It could be said that although Zhu Ying was a Rank 3 Martial Honorable, he had the strength of a Rank 4 Martial Honorable.
“I guess so!” Su Mo nodded his head.
“Ha ha ha!!!”
Zhu Ying immediately burst out into a fit of laughter when he heard Su Mo’s reply as he said, “You are very brave but you must know the consequences of challenging me!”
Zhu Ying was annoyed. This puny man, Shangguan Hao, had reached the Rank 3 Martial Honorable Realm by some mysterious method and had actually dared to challenge him outright.
“You talk too much nonsense. Do you dare to accept my challenge?” Su Mo coldly asked. Granted, there was no difference whether or not Zhu Ying accepted the challenge.
The Red Dragon Camp rules allowed anyone to challenge a superior and obtain the superior’s position if he won.
“Since you are seeking your own death, I will agree to it. Let’s head to the starry sky!” Zhu Ying coldly said.
Many onlooker’s hearts shivered. It seemed that Zhu Ying was ready to kill and if Shangguan Hao did not manage to defeat Zhu Ying, he would be killed very mercilessly.
“That is not needed, I can deal with you in 1 move!” Unexpectedly, Su Mo shook his head. He had no intentions to head up to the starry sky.
Everyone was shocked.
Deal with Zhu Ying in 1 move?
My goodness, this Shangguan Hao was so arrogant..
“What?” Zhu Ying’s face turned dark as the rage in his heart was about to explode.
He had never met any man as arrogant and prideful as Shangguan Hao. Shangguan Hao actually looked down on him with his words.
“Very good, I want to see just what abilities you have!” Zhu Ying gritted his teeth tightly as a beam of light flashed in his palm to reveal a silver-colored long sword.
Even if he attacked here and destroyed the buildings of the Red Dragon Camp, he would kill Su Mo here.
“Hm?” Right at that moment, Zhu Ying jumped in surprise as he discovered that Shangguan Hao had disappeared in the blink of an eye.
What is going on?
Zhu Ying’s heart started to beat nervously, but before he could react, Su Mo’s shadow suddenly appeared in front of him.
With a completely calm face, Su Mo raised his palm and swept it directly at Zhu Ying’s face.
This slap seemed to be calm and powerless, with no additional special energy enhancement to it. Yet, it was so incredibly fast, the onlookers could not keep up with its speed with their eyes. In the blink of an eye, it was inches from Zhu Ying’s face.
“What?” Zhu Ying’s face turned as pale as a sheet. He was not fully prepared and he had not expected Su Mo to be so fast.
In the blink of an eye, Zhu Ying wanted to lift the sword up to block the slap but he was too late.
The next instant.
A loud, clear slapping sound echoed through everyone’s hearts, causing them to all jump in surprise.
As they raised their eyes to look, fresh blood spurted through the sky and teeth were flying out of Zhu Ying’s mouth. The scene was pitiful.
A painful scream filled the air as Zhu Ying’s body flew outwards from the slap like a kite whose string had been cut.
The speed with which Zhu Ying was thrown backwards was fast and he was immediately thrown out from the edges of Red Dragon Army. Flying past a couple of buildings, Zhu Ying was forced out of the city.
Everyone had their mouths hanging wide opened as they stared wide eyed at the scene as though they had seen a ghost.
Lai Yu was dumbstruck and his eyes widened into full moons as his mind went blank.
Su Mo’s slap had sent Zhu Ying flying. This was like a dream! Lai Yu did not believe what he saw.
Heng Fei was similarly shocked. However, since he knew that Shangguan Hao was Su Mo, he was not in as much disbelief as the others.
Grinning from ear to ear, he thought to himself. Su Mo was Su Mo. As expected of a deadly genius. He could not use typical logic to understand this genius.
A few moments later, a smashing sound resounded from an area outside the city and everyone was immediately shocked to their senses.
Lai Yu and the other 8 Squad Leaders shouted out as their faces turned white. Then, their bodies jerked and they hurriedly flew to the origin of the sound.
Standing in his spot, Su Mo shook his head as he sighed. He was not surprised at all.
Zhu Ying was just a Rank 3 Martial Honorable. Even if his cultivation was 2 ranks higher, Zhu Ying would not be Su Mo’s match.
