Chapter 1730: It Is Settled
Su Mo slowly opened his eyes in the cave after half a month of cultivation.
“The speed of raising ranks truly slows down the higher my cultivation rank gets!” Su Mo sighed. After a half a month of cultivation, he couldn’t help feeling frustrated.
His improvement in cultivation was not fast enough and with his current speed, he would not be able to break through the bottleneck of his realm within 4 months.
This was because his cultivation base was not solid enough and it was a consequence of his constant forcing of his breakthrough to the next rank. He had to get rid of this way of breaking through.
However, while 4 months wasn’t enough, 5 months was more than sufficient.
His speed of cultivation was already very fast and the typical genius would need a minimum of 2 years to break through from the Rank 5 Martial Honorable Realm to the Rank 6 Martial Honorable Realm.
With that, Su Mo rose and walked out of the cave.
Half a month had passed and Su Mo felt it was shameless of him to stay at Xu Wushen’s mountain any longer. It was time for him to leave.
Su Mo did not change his appearance back to its original self and he maintained the same scrawny figure as he wore the silver mask.
Sky City was big and it had many disciples of the Triple Deities Sect. Different palaces, buildings and yards lined every corner.
“The Sorcerer Tribe really got busted this time. Not only were they unable to kill Su Mo, they also had to pay the cost to the other superpowers!”
“Indeed, who asked Grand Priest Wu Lun to be so merciless!”
“They dug their own graves this time!”
As he flew, Su Mo could vaguely make out a few voices. However, he did not stop to listen to them.
“It seems like Xu Wushen did what he said!” Su Mo muttered to himself. Without slowing down, he quickly left Sky City.
Those guarding the city gates carefully stared at Su Mo and seemed to recognize him. Hence, they let Su Mo pass through without stopping him.
After he flew out of Sky City, Su Mo hovered over the lake cities for a while before he lowered himself onto an island.
There was a large city on this island and Su Mo strode into the city.
He did not have any important matter to deal with in the city but he only headed over to get updated about matters in the Ancientspirit Galaxy, especially on news regarding the Sorcerer Tribe.
Not long later, he found a big guest house and walked into it.
This guest house was rather grand and it had many guests. There were also individual rooms in the guest house that Su Mo headed into and ordered a bottle of wine.
As he sipped the wine, Su Mo allowed his spiritual senses to spread out and he listened into the conversation in the guest house.
The news that he needed to be updated with was too much and virtually every guest in the guesthouse was talking about him.
“I heard all the tribesmen of the Sorcerer Tribe have regrouped!”
“Yes! The Triple Deities Sect is representing over 300 superpowers and is confronting the Sorcerer Tribe. I heard they have reached a conclusion!
“The Sorcerer Tribe dug their own grave. They viewed human lives to be as worthless as ants’, and they casually refined an entire star. I can’t understand their actions at all!”
A mass of voices rose over each other and filled the hall. The Sorcerer Tribe situation had ripped the entire Ancientspirit Galaxy apart.
Right at that moment, a strong, white-shirted young man stood up and grandly fanned himself with the fan in his hand as he looked towards the crowd, “All your news is too outdated. According to the latest information, the Sorcerer Tribe is going to suppress Grand Priest Wu Lun in the tribe ancestral grounds for 100 years to pay tribute for the human lives they took!”
The crowd jumped in shock. It seemed that the Sorcerer Tribe also didn’t dare to go against the numerous superpowers gathered together. This was the answer for their crimes!
However, would the Sorcerer Tribe really suppress the Grand Priest for 100 years? Who would know if they let him out after suppressing him for a short time!
“Then what about Su Mo? Su Mo killed so many Sorcerer Tribesmen and his strength is terrifying. A large number of experts gathered in the starry sky to kill him and they weren’t even successful!” Someone asked. Su Mo was the perpetrator of everything and the crowd was curious about him.
“Xu Wushen, the Grand Elder of the Triple Deities Sect reached a consensus with the Sorcerer Tribe for them not to bother Su Mo before the Sky Dragon Contest. The younger generation would settle the grudge between themselves at the Sky Dragon Contest!” The white-shirted young man laughed.
“What? They would settle it at the Sky Dragon Contest?”
“That means Su Mo would attend the Sky Dragon Contest?”
“Although his strength is terrifying, it is still a far cry away from the top talents’. Could he win?”
“We can’t say for sure. The increase in his cultivation rank is simply too fast!”
The crowd began to buzz among themselves once they heard the white-shirted man’s words. It seemed there would be a good show at the Sky Dragon Contest.
“Hehe, we will only know the final outcome after the Sky Dragon Contest!” The white-shirted young man laughed before he lifted his own cup and drank his wine.
With that, the white-shirted young man stood up and glanced at the room that Su Mo was in before he swiftly left the guest house.
“That man looks like Bai Jin of the Triple Deities Sect!”
“I think so too!”
As many people stared at the young man’s back, they softly whispered among themselves. Bai Jin was another genius of the Triple Deities Sect and it was rumored that he was a Rank 9 Martial Honorable.
Su Mo remained calm in the room. He had sensed the white-shirted man’s stare but it didn’t seem that he harbored any evil intentions.
“Is it settled?” Su Mo heaved a sigh of relief. If that was the case, he wouldn’t be in danger for the next year.
Su Mo had to thank Xu Wushen. He had helped him greatly.
Su Mo continued to sit in the room and eavesdrop on the crowds conversation. Before long, he was updated with what had happened over the past half-month.
Xu Wushen had contacted the human and different tribes and another 300 superpowers. Highlighting the star that the Grand Priest refined, they pressured the Sorcerer Tribe.
Although the Sorcerer Tribe wasn’t afraid of their threats, they could not go against the superpowers’ alliance and hence they sat down for a talk.
The final outcome of the discussion was that Grand Priest Wu Lun would be suppressed and the Sorcerer Tribe would not chase after Su Mo before the Sky Dragon Contest.
On the other hand, the Triple Deities Sect guaranteed that Su Mo could participate in the Sky Dragon Contest and he would not escape from Ancientspirit Galaxy.
If that was not guaranteed, the Triple Deities Sect would pay the Sorcerer Tribe a hefty sum.
A few moments later, Su Mo left the guest house and his body flashed before he flew through the air.
It was time to head back to Star Guzhou.
In the time that followed, Su Mo raised towards Star Guzhou as he solidified his cultivation base.
He smoothly used the Star Teleportation Arrays and arrived at Star Guzhou after a few days.
Just as he landed at Star Guzhou, more news circulated from the Sorcerer Tribe and shook the galaxy again.
The godly genius, Wu Qiong of the Sorcerer Tribe, had announced that he would kill Su Mo with his own hands at the Sky Dragon Contest and then refine Su Mo to become his own blood slave.
Not only did Wu Qiong declare that, Wu Fengtian, Wu Yexin and the top 10 talents in the Sorcerer Tribe announced that they would kill Su Mo the moment they saw him at the Sky Dragon Contest.
Ancientspirit Galaxy was engulfed in chaos from the news as everyone felt the murderous intents of the Sorcerer Tribe towards Su Mo right down to their bones.
Before the Sky Dragon Contest arrived, everyone knew that there would be a bloodbath.
Many people were fully anticipating the beginning of the Sky Dragon Contest.
At the same time, the geniuses of the superpowers that were going to attend the Sky Dragon Contest began to desperately raise their cultivation ranks and powers.
After all, there was only about 1 year left of time until the Sky Dragon Contest and most of them would spend the next year largely in cultivation seclusion.
