Chapter 1779: Revealing Themselves One After Another
Ju Shen’s eyes glistened brightly once he heard Xue Juntian’s words. The proposal was advantageous for him.
Right at that point, Xue Juntian turned around and he looked at his four corners as he shouted, “Everyone, you have spectated for so long. Isn’t it about time for you to show yourselves?”
Xue Juntian’s booming words shook the skies and echoed through everyone’s ears.
His eyes glowed brightly. His spiritual senses were sharp and accurate, he had discovered numerous people hiding in all four corners when he had battled with Xi Taiyun earlier.
Although he wasn’t sure how many people there were, he could confirm that, at the very least, 10 people were hiding nearby.
Ju Shen’s eyebrows rose as soon as he heard Xue Juntian’s words. He had not observed his surroundings and was not aware that others were hiding in the vicinity.
On the other hand, Su Mo narrowed his eyes and frowned as he was taken aback. Was he not the only one hiding in the area?
He had not taken notice of his surroundings as he wanted to obstruct others who battled at the scene. As such, he had not carefully checked the area as to whether there were others who hid themselves like him.
Jiang Shenye wouldn’t have been eliminated right? With his talents and strength, he wouldn’t be eliminated as long as his luck wasn’t poor.
However, after waiting a moment, no one showed themselves around the Imperial City.
“Hm? No one is going to reveal themselves?” Su Mo scanned his surroundings. What were these people trying to do? Did they want to take advantage of the chaos later to sneak an attack on everyone?
Su Mo scoffed. He wouldn’t continue hiding even if the others were going to continue. He was no longer afraid of anyone, not even the Rank 5 Martial Honorable Xue Juntian.
With a mental thought, he deactivated the Invisible Fighting Soul around him and revealed himself.
The moment Su Mo revealed himself, Xue Juntian and Ju Shen whipped their heads around to look at him. Two pairs of sharp, intense eyes fell upon Su Mo.
Xue Juntian was calm and he wasn’t too surprised to see Su Mo. Although he wasn’t familiar with Su Mo, he knew that Su Mo was talented and it was reasonable that Su Mo had lasted until now.
“Xue Juntian, leave this person to me. Once I eliminate him, we can fight in a same-rank battle!” Ju Shen said in a deep voice.
“Mm!” Xue Juntian nodded his head slightly.
“You are Su Mo right? It is time for you to be eliminated!” Ju Shen yelled out and took a large step towards Su Mo.
With a light laugh, Su Mo thought to himself. They were more and more confident. But that was fine, once he eliminated Ju Shen, he could deal with Xue Juntian next.
Shoosh! Shoosh! Shoosh!
Right as Su Mo was about to attack, a few shadows simultaneously shot towards him from all four corners off Imperial City.
Some people hid in the ground while others hid in the clouds and others hid in the forest.
5 people simultaneously revealed themselves. The common point between all of them was the three-pointed trident on their foreheads. These 5 people were Sorcerer Tribesmen.
Wu Qiong, Wu Fengtian, Wu Yexin and other top talents of the Sorcerer Tribe were the 5 people who had appeared.
As soon as Ju Shen saw them, he stopped and frowned. Aside from Xue Juntian, Wu Qiong was the only other person that he was wary of.
Wu Qiong, as well as the other geniuses, shot towards the sky and flew at lightning speed towards Su Mo.
These 5 Sorcerer Tribesmen immediately formed a circle and surrounded Su Mo with it.
“Su Mo, we have waited for a very long time for you!”
Wu Qiong stopped around a few kilometers from Su Mo and coldly glared at him.
The reason why he had not shown himself earlier was because he wanted to take advantage of the chaos later. He wasn’t as dumb as Xue Juntian.
However, upon seeing Su Mo reveal himself, he immediately appeared out of his hiding spot. Attaining victory in the Sky Dragon Contest was important, but killing Su Mo was also important.
However, he had not imagined that 4 other fellow Sorcerer Tribesmen would have the same idea as him, hiding in the vicinity and waiting for Su Mo to reveal himself.
“Su Mo, you won’t be able to escape today!” Wu Fengtian glared murderously at Su Mo and gritted his teeth tightly. With that, he drew a few ancient writings in the empty sky, allowing a large Dark Force seal to appear.
With that, he pressed his hand in the direction of Su Mo, causing the seal to merge into the empty space and disappear.
Wu Fengtian was determined that killing Su Mo that day would be a piece of cake.
He hated Su Mo to the core and had sealed off all routes for Su Mo to escape through. He had been waiting for Su Mo to reveal himself and had not expected Wu Fengtian to be at the scene as well. Nothing would go wrong for them now.
“Hm?” Su Mo frowned slightly. He suddenly felt the connection between himself and the jade pendant disappear once Wu Fengtian pressed the seal.
He narrowed his eyes in understanding. Wu Fengtian had actually interfered with the rules of the contest. Was Wu Fengtian trying to prevent Su Mo from teleporting out of Kunyun World?
“With just the 5 of you?” Su Mo sneered at the 5 Sorcerer Tribesmen as a cold glare flashed through his eyes.
The 5 Sorcerer Tribesmen did not have high cultivation ranks. Aside from Wu Qiong being a Rank 4 Martial Honorable, the others were all Rank 3 Martial Honorables.
“Su Mo, blood will be paid back with blood!” Wu Qiong coldly stated. He was even more determined to kill Su Mo.
The seal that Wu Fengtian had used just now was taught to them by Elder Jia Shen. All of them knew the secret seal and it prevented Su Mo from escaping Kunyun World.
With that, killing Su Mo in the small world would be a breeze for them.
At that point, Ju Shen and Xue Juntian unconsciously darkened their faces. They exchanged a look and seemed to understand what each other were trying to imply.
The large number of Sorcerer Tribesmen at the scene placed them both in a disadvantageous situation. The Sorcerer Tribesmen could voluntarily back out of the contest and help Wu Qiong regain his cultivation rank for the overall benefit of the tribe.
As such, they wouldn’t sit by and do nothing. Instead, they would eliminate the Sorcerer Tribesmen at the fastest possible speed.
Shoosh shoosh shoosh!!
Right as Ju Shen and Xue Juntian were about to attack, another wave of shadows shot out from all corners.
Swoosh! Swoosh Swoosh!!
20 people appeared instantly as 3 of them flew towards Xue Juntian and another 3 flew towards Ju Shen. The others flew towards the larger group of 5 Sorcerer Tribesmen and surrounded them.
Those who surrounded the Sorcerer Tribesmen were working together. Aside from Hei Yaohuang and Fei Tianyu, there were also Jiang Shenye, Xuan Yuanlong. The top talent of the Sacred Devil Hall and another lady in a black robe. The First Prince, Gu Cangtian and Second Princess Gu Feifei also surrounded the Sorcerer Tribesmen.
At the same time, there was also Shi Wei of the Snow Lions Clan and others from the Flying Spirit Tribe and Black Scale Tribe.
The first thing that everyone did was to surround the Sorcerer Tribesmen.
However, the moment they realized two groups of 3 geniuses were flying towards Xue Juntian and Ju Shen, they stopped themsleves before the fully surrounded the Sorcerer Tribesmen.
“Oh no!” Numerous faces fell. They had wanted to surrounded Wu Qiong because they were afraid the Sorcerer Tribesmen would help Wu Qiong regain his cultivation rank. By then, all of them would definitely lose.
However, the situation now was that there were others who were helping Xue Juntian and Ju Shen, thus foiling their plans.
The faces of the Sorcerer Tribesmen also darkened as they put their guards up.
On the other hand, Su Mo narrowed his eyes and frowned deeply. He was actually being surrounded by three layers and three groups of people.
At that point, the situation at the Small World was complicated as confusion riddled the geniuses.
