Chapter 1671: Two-edged Sword
Taishi Yuan’s voice was bone-chilling and he did not hide his killing intent.
Many people were puzzled as to why Taishi Yuan hated Su Mo deeply. What feud do they have?
“You are a loser. How dare you still brag?” After hearing what Taishi Yuan had said, Su Mo looked at him with disdain.
Taishi Yuan was behaving in such a manner as he had a high cultivation level. In the same rank fight, he could not even take one blow from Su Mo, but he was still behaving arrogantly.
Taishi Yuan sneered when he heard what Su Mo had said. He then said proudly, “If my cultivation level had not been suppressed, I would have slaughtered you!”
Taishi Yuan was confident. Indeed, he had been defeated by Su Mo at the same rank fight, but that did not mean anything.
His cultivation level was higher and his actual combat strength was much more powerful than Su Mo’s. He could kill Su Mo thousands of times in a short while.
Same rank fight?
Hohoho. What a joke. In a real fight, things would be different!
“Your combat strength is just trash. I can kill you if I have a cultivation level at Rank 6 Martial Honored Realm!” Su Mo said and looked indifferent.
When Su Mo made such a comment, he was thinking in his heart that Taishi Yuan would participate in Sky Dragon Contest. That would not be a same rank fight and Taishi Yuan would definitely try to kill him.
Su Mo felt pressured. He had to work hard to enhance his cultivation level. Although he had the Chaotic Energy as his trump card, he could not manipulate it well due to time constraints.
“The ignorant and arrogant people do not live long. I shall wait and see!”
Taishi Yuan snorted and called out to Taishi Xiang Yue, who was far off. “Xiang Yue, let’s go!”
Having said that, Taishi Yuan threw the jade pendant on the ground and turned to walk out of the manor.
Since the host of the banquet did not welcome him, there was no reason for him to stay.
When Taishi Xiang Yue saw that Taishi Yuan had walked out, she quickly followed behind him.
The jaded Square was no longer around and many tables had been destroyed. The people looked at one another. They had enjoyed the banquet but it had been messed up.
“Gentlemen, please accept my apologies. I have been a bad host!” The Second Princess looked around and cupped her fist at the people.
It had been an enjoyable banquet, but things had gotten out of hand. There was no point continuing with it.
“Second Princess, please do not say that. No one expects such a thing to happen!”
“That’s right. It is not your fault!”
Many geniuses commented to express their thoughts.
The Second Princess nodded and said, “Thank you for your understanding. We shall end the banquet. For my friends who have come from afar, please stay at Saint Royal City for a few days so that I can play host to you.”
The Second Princess had no intention to carry on with the banquet. Firstly, Taishi Yuan and Su Mo had made a mess out of the banquet.
Secondly, it was meaningless to carry on. Su Mo had displayed his invincible power within the same rank and if she continued with the sparring, more disputes would come from it.
After all, Su Mo had been challenging the First Prince. If the First Prince accepted his challenge, he would definitely be defeated by Su Mo.
On the other hand, if the First Prince had not accepted the challenge, he would bring shame to the Imperial Ancestor Court.
That would deepen the hatred between the First Prince and the Eighth Prince, and Su Mo.
“Second Princess, you are too kind. I have to attend to some matters so I shall not stay on!”
“I have to leave as well. I shall come and look for Second Princess in the future if there is an opportunity!”
“I shall make a move first!”
The men from the other 11 forces turned down the Second Princess’ invitation to stay on and they left.
Some of the geniuses from the Imperial Ancestor Court left as well.
After a while, the venue was left with five people, namely the Second Princess, the three Princes, and Su Mo.
“I shall make a move!” The Third Prince said and left the manor.
“Su Mo, it seems like you will not have the opportunity to spar with me today!”
The First Prince glanced at Su Mo and curled his lips into a derisive smile. He then walked out.
After seeing Su Mo’s combat strength, he was aware that he was no match for Su Mo at the same rank fight.
Since the banquet had ended, there was no more sparring and that pleased the First Prince.
Su Mo did not bother himself with the First Prince and he looked at the Second Princess. He cupped his fist and said, “Thank you, Princess, for saving me!”
The blow that Taishi Yuan had thrown out earlier was mighty. If the Second Princess had not stopped it, Su Mo did not have much confidence that he could have fended it off.
Thus, Su Mo felt obligated to thank the Second Princess.
“You are welcome. Taishi Yuan broke the rules and I couldn’t ignore it!” The Second Princess shook her head. As the host of the banquet, she had to stop Taishi Yuan.
Su Mo nodded when he heard the Second Princess’ reply. He then looked at the Eighth Prince and said, “Second Princess, Eighth Prince, since the banquet has ended, I shall make a move.”
“All right!” The two of them nodded. Su Mo then left the manor and returned to Red Dragon Camp.
When the Second Princess saw that Su Mo had left, she told Gu Tianyi, “Eighth Brother, you have found yourself a great helper!”
“Hohoho. I have known Su Mo for a long time. Since he was dispelled by Shenwu Academy, naturally, he came to Saint Royal City!” Gu Tianyi said with a smile. This day, although Su Mo did not defeat the First Prince, Gu Tianyi was happy with his performance.
“Eighth Brother, when such a genius grows up in the future, you should know what it means to our Imperial Ancestor Court!” The Second Princess said as light flashed across her eyes.
“Second Sister, don’t worry! I know what to do!” Gu Tianyi replied. Su Mo had great potential and he would be an asset to the Imperial Ancestor Court in the future.
On the other hand, he could create trouble for the Imperial Ancestor Court.
Su Mo was a two-edged sword. If used well, he would be a great weapon. If he was mishandled, he would cause great harm.
However, Gu Tianyi was confident of handling Su Mo well as he believed that he knew Su Mo well enough.
“Great!” The Second Princess nodded. Among the three brothers, she had more confidence in Gu Tianyi.
Gu Tianyi’s cultivation level was the lowest among the three Princes. However, he had a better temperament compared to the First Prince and the Third Prince.
After a while, Gu Tianyi walked out of the manor and left.
Su Mo returned to Red Dragon Camp and headed straight to his stone hall to work on his cultivation.
Although Sky Dragon Contest would take place only in two years’ time, two years would pass by in the twinkle of an eye. He had to hasten his cultivation speed.
However, after cultivating for 15 minutes, Gu Tianyi came knocking on his door.
Su Mo invited Gu Tianyi to his hall and the two of them sat in the living room.
“Su Mo, you have performed well today!”
The moment Gu Tianyi sat down, he smiled broadly. Apparently, he was pleased with Su Mo’s performance.
“Hohoho. The First Prince is too imperious. He can’t blame anyone for it!”
Su Mo smiled. He then sighed and said, “It is a pity that I did not have a chance to spar with him. I can help you teach him a lesson!”
“It is all right!”
Gu Tianyi shook his head and said with a smile, “He has already been embarrassed. We do not want to enrage him!”
