Chapter 1676: Raging Murderous Intent, Only Towards Su Mo
“Brother Su Mo, you previously taught me high-level tricks. I did not expect to be able to come on an expedition with you. This is fate!”
Jin Lu walked to Su Mo’s side and said with a smile. He looked at Su Mo’s expression and it seemed as if he had already let go of the hatred from being attacked.
Su Mo glanced at Jin Lu. Although the latter was smiling, there was a sense of coldness in his eyes that could not be concealed.
“It is indeed fate!” Su Mo nodded. Since Jin Lu was being amiable on the outside, he would not ignore it.
“Haha, I hope that after Brother Su, you will be able to return to Saint Royal City safely from this expedition!” Jin Lu said with a faint smile.
Su Mo’s eyes flashed. Jin Lu was blatantly threatening him. This caused the murderous intent in his heart to surge uncontrollably.
“I will, you should too!” Su Mo said coldly, his tone carrying a sense of warning.
“It would naturally be best if we are all safe!” Jin Lu sneered.
The crowd glanced at the two of them upon hearing their conversation. They could naturally see the tension between them.
Zhu Tong was expressionless. He looked at Su Mo from the corner of his eyes and the murderous intent flashed.
Not long after, everyone returned back to the camp.
The camp where Red Dragon Camp and Black Cloud Army were staying was made up of wooden houses that seemed relatively simple.
These wooden houses were naturally built by the defenders of the Black Mountain Fort and were dedicated to armies being stationed there.
The wooden houses were arranged neatly in the camp, forming an unbroken line and occupying more than a ten mile radius.
Su Mo returned to where the Red Dragon Camp was located and separated himself from the crowd. He returned to his wooden house.
As the squadron leader, he naturally had his own wooden house. As for the other ordinary soldiers, each squad had to share a wooden house.
Back in the wooden house, Su Mo sat down cross-legged and closed his eyes as he started to cultivate.
His cultivation had already been stuck at the Peak of Level 3 Martial Honoured Realm for days. However, the condensation of Dark Force and solidification of the foundation was progressing rather slowly. He was still far from breaking through to Level 4 Martial Honoured Realm.
According to his calculations, if he were to cultivate without stopping, it would take at least another two to three months before he could try to break through to Level 4 Martial Honoured Realm.
This speed seemed very slow. However, it was already extremely fast.
If an ordinary Genius reached this stage, he would need at least a year to cultivate in order to break through the realm.
Furthermore, an ordinary genius could only be promoted to a higher level after more than ten years.
As for those who had maximised their potential, there was a possibility that they would stay stuck for a lifetime and be unable to advance their cultivation any more.
While cultivating, Su Mo could not help but think deeply. Maybe Jin Lu would really attack him. He had to be exceptionally careful in future and not suffer from an unexpected failure.
Far away from Su Mo’s wooden house, in another wooden house.
Jin Tai, who led the Black Cloud Army, sat in the wooden house with a golden saber. His face was dignified and the scrawny general standing before him was none other than Jin Lu.
“Second Uncle, get rid of Su Mo. This is the First Prince’s intention.” Jing Lu said quietly.
Jin Tai frowned. He had just returned to the camp and Jin Lu and come up to him, wanting him to kill Su Mo.
“Do you have a rivalry with him?” asked Jin Tai.
“Yes, he is under Gu Tianyi. Before I embarked on this expedition, the First Prince specially tasked me to make sure that Su Mo does not go back alive!” Jin Lu nodded. He hated Su Mo to the core. Even if this was not the First Prince’s instructions, he still wanted Su Mo to leave without returning.
At the previous banquet, Su Mo had almost ruined his physical body. He had used a large amount of precious spiritual medications but his injury had yet to fully recover.
“He is one of the squadron leaders of the 2nd Platoon of the Red Dragon Camp. The Red Dragon Camp is not to be trifled with. Ren Tianya’s power is exceptionally strong, it is no weaker than mine!” Jin Tai said as his face sank.
Su Mo was not worth mentioning. However, it would be easy to kill Su Mo with Ren Tianya there.
Ren Tianya was the strongest among the three Platoon Leaders of Red Dragon Camp. All the three Princes wanted to win him over but none were successful.
“Therefore, we cannot directly kill them or else we will not be able to account for it to the Second Princess. We have to think of a plan!” Jin Lu said.
“What do you have in mind?” Jin Tai asked. Since Su Mo was the target of the First Prince, and they were of the First Prince Camp, they naturally had to help the First Prince resolve his problems.
Jin Lu fell silent for a moment and smiled. “Isn’t Zhu Long letting the troops inspect the places that have been conquered by the Blood Pupil Clan now? I reckon that we will hear from them soon. Until then, we will definitely dispatch people and reclaim those places. We will then let Second Princess assign our Black Cloud Army and Red Dragon army to go out. As long as Su Mo is not with Ren Tianya, killing him will be as easy as pie.”
Hearing this, Jin Tai fell silent for a moment and nodded. This was a good idea. After killing Su Mo, they would be able to let the Blood Pupil Clan take the rap.
Immediately after, the two of them quietly discussed the plan in detail.
In the huge camps was another wooden house.
Three generals sat together. They were the three Geniuses of the Zhu Family – Zhu Ying, Zhu Tong and Zhu Ming.
Zhu Tong and Zhu Ming were both from the Black Cloud Army while Zhu Ying was from Red Dragon Camp. However, this did not stop them from coming together.
“Big brother, this time we must definitely kill Su Mo!” Zhu Ying looked at Zhu Tong and said with a look of resentment. This was a great opportunity.
It would be difficult to find another opportunity after returning to Saint Royal City if they missed this chance.
“You don’t have to say it, his Highness the Third Prince has already told us!” Zhu Tong said coldly. Su Mo was so demonic, how could the Thrid Prince let him live?
“Oh? That’s great!” Zhu Ying was shocked to hear this, then immediately overjoyed. He did not expect the Third Prince to be so decisive, wanting to kill Su Mo so quickly.
“You cannot be reckless if you want to kill Su Mo. The Red Dragon Camp is not to be messed with!” Zhu Ming reminded from the side.
“Of course. Although Su Mo’s cultivation is not high, the two Platoon Leaders of Red Dragon Camp are still there. Moreover, this is the military. If we directly attack, the Second Princess will not spare us.” Zhu Tong noddd. It naturally was impossible for him to attack directly.
“What should we do then?” Zhu Ying frowned.
“We can only wait for Su Mo to leave Black Mountain Fort before attacking!”
Zhu Ming continued, “I reckon that Jin Lu will take action as well. If he does, we will not have to do anything.”
Zhu Tong hesitated for a while before speaking. “We cannot pin all our hope on others. How about this: I will go to the General Quarters to visit Clan Uncle. As he is the Commanding Officer of Black Mountain Fort, it will be easier to arrange!”
“That would be best!” Zhu Ming nodded.
“Big Brother, I will accompany you there!” Zhu Ying said impatiently. Big General Zhu Long was their Clan Uncle. It would be best if there was Zhu Long’s help.
“OK, let’s go!”
Zhu Tong nodded. He immediately took Zhu Ying and left the Camp as he headed toward the General Quarters once again.
