Chapter 1658: Chapter 1658 Trial Fight
“I am very happy to be able to see all the young geniuses here today!”
The Second Princess raised her glass again and looked at the crowd as she smiled, “This wine is the original Spiritual Wine of the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction. It is valued highly, I hope that everyone enjoys it.”
With that, the Second Princess gulped down the glass of wine again.
“I have heard that the Second Princess of the Imperial Court Faction is manly and famous. The Second Princess really does live up to her name!” A refined-looking young man said aloud.
“Hehe, Brother Li Ye travelled over a few hundred kilometers to come here all the way from Chixia Cave. You must stay in Saint Royal City for a longer period of time for me, the host!” Second Princess laughed.
“Second Princess, you invited Brother Li and not me to wait. Are you being biased to Brother Li?” A chubby young man joked.
“Brother Wei Cheng don’t blame me. You are the best genius of the Nine Heavens Holy Ground. I am very glad that you have come here. Once the banquet is over, we can talk together if Brother Wei has the time!” The Second Princess grinned.
“Hehe, I definitely cannot reject the invitation of the Second Princess!” The chubby young man, Wei Cheng, laughed.
In the following moments, a large number of geniuses one by one went up to the Second Princess and toasted their glasses to her. The atmosphere was lively.
These geniuses who were invited to the banquet not only belonged to the Taishi Family, there were also geniuses who came from the other 11 superpowers behind the Taishi Family.
Evidently, the Second Princess had a large network of friends and she was also famous.
The disciples of the 12 superpowers who had been invited to the banquet were generally all top talents of the superpowers. They mostly had strength on par with the Second Princess.
Although these people could not be said to be godly geniuses who were under 100 years old in Ancientspirit Galaxy, there were mostly top talents who were famous throughout the galaxy.
Su Mo felt bored. Aside from Gu Tianyi, he did not recognize anyone and only sat in one corner to drink wine.
Laughter erupted through the banquet. Most of them were words of congratulations or casual greetings.
The geniuses chatted among each other, and half an hour later, they finally talked about something that Su Mo was interested in.
Second Princess Gu Feifei glanced at the crowd and said, “There are less than 2 years until the Sky Dragon Contest. Is there anyone in the crowd who is confident to take the Ancient Dragon’s Vein from the Triple Deities Sect?”
At that moment, the entire ground quietened down as serious looks crossed most faces.
“It is hard! There are numerous geniuses in the Triple Deities Sect. Xue Juntian of the Triple Deities Sect is a Sage-to-be and he is incredibly powerful. He has an ‘Unbeatable Space Power’ that cannot be swept away by anyone. It is very hard to beat him, someone who is almost as strong as an actual Martial Sage!” The strained-looking Li Ye of Chixia Caves shook his head sadly.
Although he was confident in his own strength, he did not have the confidence to be able to defeat Xue Juntian of the Triple Deities Sect.
A Sage-to-be was someone who was close to becoming a real Martial and he was unbelievably strong.
Although he was very close to being a Martial Sage, he still had a long way to go.
The average genius could possibly exceed the limits of his own rank slightly, but it was almost impossible for one to stand against a Martial Sage. The difference in power was huge.
Even the weakest Martial Sage could kill a large number of Sage-to-bes with a wave of his hand.
The difference between a Sage-to-be and Martial Sage was almost like the difference between a low rank martial artist and a high rank martial artist in the same cultivation realm.
Xue Juntian of the Triple Deities Sect was a Sage-to-be and he could barely stand his ground against a Martial Sage. With such terrifying strength, who could stand up to him?
“Yes. Aside from Xue Juntian, there is also Qin Yun, who is also an exceptional genius!” The chubby young man, Wei Cheng of the Nine Heavens Holy Ground added.
“Besides the two of them, the other superpowers and tribes are strong. For example, Ju Shen of the Giant Beings Clan is also strong. I personally saw last time how he destroyed an 800-kilometer-wide star with a single fist.” Taishi Yuan exclaimed.
The crowd was taken aback. To be able to destroy an 800-kilometer-wide star with a single fist; such strength could rival Xue Juntian already.
Many hearts fell. Most of the people on the grounds were geniuses of the Imperial Ancestor Court or other geniuses of the 12 superpowers.
A majority of them wanted to participate in the Sky Dragon Contest, but their opponents’ strengths diminished their hopes of winning.
Su Mo also frowned as he heard the words exchanged by the crowd. Were his opponents going to be that strong?
If that was so, Jiang Shenye and he would find it very hard to complete their mission!
Furthermore, the number of participants from the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction who participated in the Sky Dragon Contest was not set and Su Mo had to consult Gu Tianyi on it for further details in the future.
“Everyone, don’t worry. Although our opponents are strong, we are no weaker. No one knows whose hands victory will fall into eventually!” The First Prince Gu Cangtian encouraged in a low tone.
“Brother Cangtian, will all four princes and the princess here attend the Sky Dragon Contest?” A tall young man asked.
“I, Second Princess and Third Prince will naturally participate in it!”
The First Prince laughed. Then, he glanced at Gu Tianyi as a condescending look crossed his eyes, “As for Eighth Prince, his cultivation rank is low and he will not participate in the contest.”
Gu Tianyi frowned. The First Prince’s words were not wrong, but he was being humiliated and disregarded.
Furthermore, the king was the one who would decide who would eventually enter the Sky Dragon Contest. The First Prince directly saying that Gu Tianyi would not attend put him down.
The crowd silently nodded their heads. Although the Eighth Prince’s talents were high, he was young and his cultivation rank was not high enough. As such, he was not a suitable choice for entering the Sky Dragon Contest.
“Everyone, the Sky Dragon Contest is about to come. At that point, we will inevitably be fighting against each other, I hope that we will harm the harmony between us only then!” The cold faced Third Prince said.
“If we end up battling against each other, we will still have to put aside our personal relationship and fight for our respective superpowers!”
“Hehe, the Sky Dragon Contest is nearing. How about trial-fighting it out today?”
“A trial fight is good. We can understand each other a bit more and ascertain our own strengths!”
The crowd spoke out one after another and many people suggested a trial fight. They had come here for this special reason.
After all, it was less than 2 years to the Sky Dragon Contest. If they could understand each other’s strengths beforehand, they would be at an advantage.
The Second Princess smiled as she said, “The first reason why I invited everyone today was for my birthday banquet, and the second was to trial-fight against each other to understand our own strengths better.”
“That would be great!”
“How will we fight?”
Questions poured out from the crowd. The garden wasn’t a suitable place to fight. A single strike would turn the garden to ashes.
