Chapter 1668: The Same Words
“It would be great if we could have a genius like you in our Imperial Ancestor Court!” The Second Princess smiled and she looked chivalric.
Su Mo was a genius and he had a great future. He had great potential and if he joined the Imperial Ancestor Court, it would benefit the Imperial Ancestor Court.
The Second Princess knew that since Su Mo was the Eighth Prince’s man, he would get involved in the power struggle of the three Princes.
“Second Princess, you are too kind with your words!” Su Mo responded.
“Ha! No wonder you are so arrogant. You have declared yourself to be a gifted genius!”
The First Prince snorted and looked at Gu Tianyi, who was beside him, and said, “Eighth Brother, I didn’t expect you to have such a genius under your wing without our knowledge.”
“Thank you, brother. Su Mo is indeed talented!” Gu Tianyi said with a smile and he looked calm.
Su Mo’s identity had been revealed but it did not matter to Gu Tianyi.
In actual fact, Gu Tianyi preferred Su Mo to use his real name so that the people would be more respectful toward him.
The Third Prince was silent and he looked cold. No one could tell what he was thinking.
“He is talented, but he is too presumptuous!” The First Prince said.
When the Eighth Prince heard this, he curled up his lips into a smile and looked toward Su Mo.
Su Mo knew what the Eighth Prince meant. He immediately cupped his fist at the First Prince and said, “First Prince, may I know if I am now qualified to take you on?”
Su Mo challenged the First Prince to fight him again. The First Prince had mentioned that Su Mo did not have the qualification to challenge him but he had defeated Zhu Tong and revealed his identity.
“I have told you before that you will have to defeat the other top geniuses before you are qualified to challenge me!” The First Prince said, his face dark.
The First Prince felt torn. He was at a loss as to whether he should accept Su Mo’s challenge.
If he accepted it, he would be lowering his status. Moreover, he might be defeated.
After all, Su Mo’s combat strength was invincible within the same rank.
If he did not accept the challenge, it might seem that he was afraid of Su Mo.
Fortunately, he had stated his conditions beforehand, thus he had an excuse to turn Su Mo down.
“First Prince, what you have said is very vague. You have mentioned the other top geniuses in the Holy Dynasty. Are you referring to the Third Prince and the Second Princess?”
Su Mo asked in a deep voice. Zhu Tong was the top genius in the Imperial Ancestor Court. If one looked further, the next in line would be the Third Prince and the Second Princess.
“That’s right. If you can defeat Third Brother and Feifei, you can then challenge me!” The First Prince nodded.
When the Second Princess and the Third Prince heard what the First Prince had said, they frowned. By saying that, he meant that his combat strength was more powerful than the two of them.
The rest of geniuses from the Imperial Ancestor Court found nothing wrong with the statement that the First Prince had made. After all, as the most powerful master among the younger generation in the Imperial Ancestor Court, the people had long considered him invincible.
“First Prince, are you afraid to spar with me?” Su Mo was not silly. He would not challenge the Second Princess and the Third Prince because of what the First Prince had said.
“You are a scoundrel! Who am I? Why should I be afraid of you, given my strength?” The First Prince shouted when he heard what Su Mo had said, and his face was ghastly pale.
“If you are not afraid, why do you find so many excuses?”
Su Mo gave him a derisive smile and continued, saying, “This is just a sparring session. If you are afraid, just say so. I will not force you!”
The First Prince’s face darkened and he was enraged. It was apparent that Su Mo was forcing the First Prince to spar with him.
After pondering for a while, the First Prince smiled coldly. Since Su Mo had been so presumptuous, he had no choice but to take him on.
He did not believe that Su Mo’s combat strength was formidable.
Just as the First Prince was about to get up, Taishi Yuan, who was in a white robe, stood.
“Brother Cangtian, Su Mo’s combat strength is impressive. My hands are itching now. Can I spar with him on your behalf?” Taishi Yuan asked loudly.
When the First Prince heard Taishi Yuan’s request, he immediately broke out into a smile and replied, “Sure. Since Brother Taishi’s hands are itching, I will not stop you!”
The First Prince was more than happy to let Taishi Yuan take the field. Although he had not exchanged blows with Taishi Yuan, he was well aware of his strength.
Taishi Yuan was at the same rank as him and, in terms of cultivation level and combat strength, they were almost on par with each other.
Taishi Yuan would not have a problem defeating Su Mo. Even if he could not defeat Su Mo, the First Prince would be able to find out Su Mo’s actual combat strength.
Su Mo looked derisively at Taishi Yuan. Taishi Family could no longer contain themselves!
Gu Tianyi looked calm but he secretly shook his head. He knew that Taishi Yuan wanted to avenge Lord Taishi.
However, no one in the arena was a match for Su Mo in the same rank fight. That included Taishi Yuan and the First Prince.
The people were surprised that Taishi Yuan had volunteered to take Su Mo on and they started to look forward to the fight.
Taishi Yuan was the top genius among the 13 forces and his strength was comparable to that of the First Prince’s.
Since the top genius was out to contend with Su Mo, could Su Mo still win the fight?
“Su Mo, are you game for it?” Taishi Yuan asked Su Mo as he looked at him. He did not go straight to the Square.
He knew that Su Mo was aware of his intentions. However, if Su Mo dared not take him on, he would not force it upon him.
“Come on!” Su Mo said with an indifferent look. He was not afraid of Taishi Yuan. Since Taishi Yuan wanted to kill him, he would have to pay a high price for it.
Taishi Yuan nodded. He then walked toward the center of the Square and went more than 200 meters away from Su Mo.
Zhu Tong threw the cultivation suppression jade pendant to Taishi Yuan and Taishi Yuan caught hold of it and put it on.
However, his aura did not go down drastically and it was not noticeable to the people around him as he had withdrawn his aura.
The Square went into silence once again. It was a fight between two top powers. One of them was the renowned Su Mo, and the other was the most powerful genius in Taishi Family, Taishi Yuan.
That fight was not to be missed and it would be interesting. Even the First Prince, the Third Prince, and the Second Princess looked grave. They were looking forward to the fight.
However, just as everyone was looking forward to the fight, the same words resounded through the entire Square.
“You only have a chance to throw out one blow. Go ahead!”
Su Mo said flatly and his voice lingered in the ears of the people. Everyone dropped their jaws in shock.
“Crap! He is so arrogant!”
“He is too presumptuous!”
“I have long heard of his arrogance and it is indeed true!”
Many people shouted in shock. They had been taken aback by what Su Mo had said. It was fine for him to make such a statement to Jin Lu and Zhu Tong. However, it was too presumptuous of him to make such a statement to Taishi Yuan!
Although Taishi Yuan’s talent and strength was not the most powerful among the 13 forces, he was one of the people at the peak.
Among the 13 forces, no one had ever had the audacity to comment that they could defeat Taishi Yuan in one blow.
