Chapter 1841: Pretty Hilarious
Amidst all the commotion and noise, Long Teng locked his focus on Su Mo, and sent a telepathic message to him: “Palace Master, how is the Firmament Palace?”
“Excellent! It’s progressing well!” Su Mo sent a telepathic reply.
“That’s brilliant. After a year, my blood lineage will be completely returned to ancestors. When that time comes, I shall return to my tribe to take a look!” Long Teng added.
“Good. What about Xiao Xiao? Has she accompanied you to the Archosaur Galaxy?” Su Mo questioned, since Xiao Xiao had yet to appear, despite his opponent, he would consider returning to the tribe.
“Xiao Xiao is still at the Dragon Tribe, though her blood lineage is not as superior as mine, however it’s pure and authentic enough, furthermore it has evolved into the genuine Eight-winged Wyvern!” Long Teng echoed.
Su Mo’s eye glinted upon hearing this. He reckoned that the young Xiao Xiao had the potential to be as good as Long Teng.
“Palace Master, we shall discuss more after the match!” Long Teng remarked. With those parting words, he flew swiftly away.
Upon seeing this, Su Mo felt a sense of resignation. Long Teng’s direct admission of defeat had put him in the teeth of a storm.
He thought in silence. Since he had no intention to stay behind to challenge Mo Xiao, he also flew out of the White Jade Mountain.
In a flash, both warriors were back at the spectators bench.
Silence prevailed. Everyone turned their focus onto the two men.
“Long Teng, what is happening? How come you choose to admit defeat?” Dark Dragon Lord asked brashly. He felt embarrassed that Long Teng had surrendered without a fight.
Upon hearing that remark, Long Teng anxiously searched for a justifiable excuse to get away.
“He and Su Mo have been longtime friends!”
Before Long Teng could offer any explanation, Long Ao answered coldly, as if he had been aware of the situation all along.
The crowd suddenly realised that this might be true. No wonder Long Teng would eat the humble pie and admit defeat.
There was no other reason that could have justified what Long Teng had done, since Long Teng’s prowess could have matched Su Mo.
“Is that true ?” Dark Dragon Lord turned to Long Teng to confirm.
“It’s true, Su Mo is my benefactor and I am indeed indebted to him. That’s the reason I offer to admit defeat!” Long Teng had no choice but to confess.
Compassion swept across Dark Dragon Lord’s face. Such a confession would have salvaged the reputation of the Dragon Tribe.
Both Leng Xie and Fan Yunsheng held gloomy expressions on their faces. They had initially thought that Su Mo could have easily defeated by Long Teng.
Now the unexpected outcome had salvaged the situation.
Most members from the Sun Moon Tribe accepted the outcome. They were pleased that Su Mo did not have to fight the duel.
“How could they have been friends?” Saint Elder Jia Shen muttered coldly. Long Teng is from the Archosaur Galaxy, which is faraway from Ancientspirit Galaxy and Ming Xu Galaxy. How then could the duo be acquainted?”
He was not concerned at all. It was unimportant whether Su Mo had emerged as a winner or a loser from the match.
After all, he had wanted to kill Su Mo.
“What rotten luck!” Gao Haoran shook his head lightly, he could not have fathomed Su Mo’s good luck.
Of course, he was the least concerned over such a trivial matter. He peeped at Mo Xiao near him and his patience was running out.
Su Mo was expressionless, he thought like Long Teng. So what if the whole world had known about their relationship.
At this moment, a haughty Long Ao turned to face Su Mo, and declared loudly, “Su Mo, Long Teng had admitted defeat, however I won’t do so. I shall represent the Dragon Tribe, to let you know how it feels to be defeated.”
He issued a duel challenge to Su Mo. Long Teng’s defeat had tarnished the reputation of the Dragon Tribe. He vowed to salvage that tainted reputation.
The crowd were caught by surprise, Long Ao had wanted to fight Su Mo?
Long Ao was reputed to be one of the talents amongst the crowd. In fact, he was the most talented one amongst them.
After all, the genius had become a saint at a hundred years old, and one of the unsurpassable talents in the Dragon Tribe.
Amongst all the talents in the crowd, none had the confidence to defeat Long Ao.
Mo Xiao, Sun Taishan, Yin Jiu and all these evil doers, their eyes twinkling. Long Ao’s open challenge to Su Mo had given them a shock.
After all, a Rank 7 of the Martial Honored Realm had weak prowess and there was no opportunity for them to take on any flight.
However, if Long Ao fought, everyone could see how strong his prowess was.
In their opinion, Long Ao was a powerful opponent.
On hearing this, Su Mo frowned. His intent was clear. He had not wished to fight, he had come to kill Mo Xiao.
Accepting Long Ao’s invite to duel would mean he would be embroiled in fighting and would ultimately miss his objective.
“You are cultivated in the Martial Sage Realm, and yet you have the nerve to challenge me?” Su Mo stared at Long Ao and said coldly. He had no wish to fight with him.
It would be meaningless for this duel. Losing it would embarrass him. Winning it would draw unnecessary attention to him. This unwanted attention may affect his ultimate motive to kill Mo Xiao.
“Are you fearful?”
Long Ao sniggered, his eyes full of contempt. He subsequently turned to face Yin Shen and said in a loud voice, “Yin Shen Tribe Chief, are the talents in your tribe as such? I give you my word, I will not bully you. I can duel with him fairly. What do you think?”
The audience were in shock. Long Ao was adamant about having a duel with Su Mo. Was it to salvage the loss of reputation due to Long Teng’s admission of defeat?
Dark Dragon Lord nodded. Long Ao possessed the overbearingness of the Dragon Tribe. Long Teng did not possess the same traits or strength.
Seeing this, Long Teng was not enraged. On the contrary, he showed a dramatic expression.
Duel with Su Mo?
Long Teng shook his head. Although he was unaware of Su Mo’s prowess, and according to Su Mo’s current unbelievable prowess, such a match between same-rank opponents, he might not lose to Long Ao.
Su Mo shut his eyelids and watched Long Ao coldly. This outrageous guy infuriated him.
Yin Shen, upon hearing the words, paused briefly, and then turned to look at Su Mo, ordered in an authoritative tone, “Since the other party has called a match, as a member of the Sun Moon Tribe, one cannot have cold feet!”
Su Mo agreed and nodded helplessly. He understood the other party’s intent. He had to accept the fight.
“Long Ao, we are of the same rank and let’s do away with this duel! You are unable to take a blow from me; I will allow you to utilise half level of the Saint Realm’s cultivation,” Su Mo began to rise, his focus still fixed on Long Ao.
He did not offer his opponent the chance to make the first strike. After all, though he was unafraid of his opponent’s prowess, in order to win his opponent, he had to conceal some prowess in order to achieve his objective.
“What did you say ?” Long Ao was stunned.
The audience heard Su Mo and were as surprised as Long Ao.
Warriors of the same rank but one was unable to take a blow from the other?
How could Su Mo be so conceited? He who mocked the Dragon Tribe, whose prowess was unparalleled, would be unable to take a blow from him?
All the tribes were puzzled. They all found Su Mo to be ridiculous!
Even the Sun and Moon tribe members were flabbergasted. They all knew how powerful Su Mo was. However, they doubted his ability to strike an opponent from the Dragon Tribe who shared the same rank with him in terms of prowess and strength.
Fan Yunsheng and Leng Xie sneered. This Su Mo was too arrogant. He should be taught a lesson!
Leng Xie felt indignant, especially after the duel with Long Teng. He could feel how powerful the Dragon Tribe was, and he began to belittle Su Mo.
He knew Su Mo had great prowess, otherwise he would not be able to beat him easily. However, he had experienced the terror of the Dragon Tribe.
As a result, he did not consider the possibility that Su Mo could defeat Long Ao within a blow. That possibility was close to zero.
The Sorcerer Tribe was an exception. They did not think that Su Mo was conceited, they were well aware of Su Mo’s martial prowess.
Gao Haoran could not help but giggle out loud, his face blushing in redness. He had just made a realisation, his peer of the Myriad Worlds Mountain was actually pretty hilarious!
