Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
“Ranked fifth on the King Sage Board?” Linghu Tianhua was stunned as he heard the young man’s words. He knew the top five martial artists on the King Sage Board. Who was that young man?
With that, he turned his head towards the stone pillar behind him.
Ever since he came out, he had not had the time to look at the situation on the stone pillar.
Linghu Tianhua’s gaze immediately locked onto the fifth name on the King Sage Board.
The name of ‘Shangguan Hao’ gave him a shock and his face turned blank.
He had never heard of such a name and had never seen the person. When did he become fifth on the King Sage Board?
The person in front of him?
Linghu Tianhua’s heart sunk. How could that be? How could a random, unknown Initial Stage Martial Sage be ranked fifth on the King Sage Board?
Linghu Tianhua was filled with turmoil. Regardless of who Shangguan Hao was, he had to be incredibly strong to be ranked fifth on the King Sage Board. Linghu Tianhua could not go against him.
However, at that point, he suddenly turned as red as a beetroot. Did he not just embarrass himself in front of everyone?
Linghu Tianhua started to hesitate.
Suddenly the space in front of the stone pillar vibrated slightly again.
Another figure appeared.
The second person who appeared was Sun Dashan.
Sun Dashan strode forward and immediately burst into laughter, a mad expression on his face.
He was ecstatic to be able to be ranked nineteenth on the King Sage Board as an End Stage Martial Sage.
With that, Sun Dashan spotted Linghu Tianhua beside him and was suddenly taken aback.
“You are actually out already!”
Sun Dashan was surprised and he instantly turned around to find Linghu Tianhua’s name on the King Sage Board.
“Seventeenth!” Sun Dashan’s face fell. He had always wanted to compete with Linghu Tianhua but he had not expected that Linghu Tianhua would be ranked so highly.
His eyes swept through the stone pillar as he saw Mo Jue ranked third, Long Teng ranked fourth and Shangguan Hao ranked fifth. His expression quickly darkened and the gleeful look on his face was replaced by a solemn glare.
“Who is this Shangguan Hao? How is he ranked fifth?” Sun Dashan asked in complete surprise.
“He is this man here!” Linghu Tianhua stared at Su Mo and said. He thus avoided humiliation with Sun Dashan’s appearance.
“You?” Sun Dashan immediately stared at Su Mo.
However, his eyebrows furrowed together as he felt a familiar aura around Su Mo.
Su Mo ignored the two and continued to wait for Mo Jue.
Linghu Tianhua walked to a corner, keeping his eyes on Su Mo. What was Shangguan Hao capable of?
On the other hand, Sun Dashan walked in a circle around Shangguan Hao. The more he looked at the young man, the more he felt familiar with him.
However, he could not pinpoint what exactly was familiar about the man.
Right at that point, a slight vibration occurred above the stone pillar and a large figure suddenly appeared.
This man was about nine feet tall and appeared domineering. His skin was fully black and his muscles looked like individual bricks on his body.
The man was a demon tribe member who was clad in a red animal-skin robe.
Everyone who saw the man immediately stepped forward.
“Mo Jue, congratulations on being ranked third on the King Sage Board!” A person familiar with Mo Jue stepped forward and cupped his fists together.
“Haha, as expected of the top genius of the True Demon Tribe. It is really a joyful thing to be ranked third on the King Sage Board.”
“Brother Mo Jue isn’t far from becoming an Empty God!”
Many people issued words of congratulations as smiles were plastered across their faces and they appeared to be close to Mo Jue.
After all, with Mo Jue’s talents, he would become a top expert in Infinite Region.
It could be expected that Mo Jue would become a top expert like his father, Demon God Jiu Yang within a hundred years.
“I am only ranked third on the King Sage Board. In three years, I will top the board!”
Mo Jue smiled in front of everyone as he confidently claimed.
He had not yet realized his full potential and in three years time, he would be able to surpass Yin Busi and Long Xiaotian.
Many people sucked in a breath. Mo Jue was aiming for first place!
However, no one thought that Mo Jue was being too arrogant as Mo Jue did indeed have the potential to top the board.
Granted, Long Teng, who was ranked fourth on the board, also had the same potential.
“It is a pity you no longer have the chance!”
Right at that moment, a light voice rang out as cold rays of light shot out of Su Mo’s eyes.
Mo Jue immediately turned towards Su Mo as his face darkened and he said, “Who are you? What do you mean?”
“The person who will kill you!” Su Mo coldly said as he attacked suddenly. His reached a finger forward and formed a sword that pierced towards Mo Jue’s brain.
This sudden change shocked everyone in King Sage Hall.
This Shangguan Hao actually wanted to kill Mo Jue?
How could that be?
He was only ranked fifth on the King Sage Board. Wasn’t it a stupid thing to attempt to kill the third rank on the King Sage Board?
Everyone was stunned and even Linghu Tianhua had his eyes wide open.
He had not imagined that something like that would occur. However, he was secretly filled with joy. How could that man be Mo Jue’s opponent?
Killing Mo Jue was courting his own doom!
“Su…!” Sun Dashan’s eyes bulged open. He was the only person in the crowd who had met Su Mo before.
As such, he immediately recognized Su Mo from the aura that surged out with Su Mo’s Dark Force.
Su Mo’s attack was fast and it instantly closed down on Mo Jue’s mind, its speed as fast as lightning.
“Shit!” Mo Jue’s heart jumped. He had not imagined that he would suddenly be attacked.
However, as the third-ranked on the King Sage Board, Mo Jue’s reaction speed was very fast.
He quickly whipped his head to a side and narrowly avoided the attack. At the same time, a short blade appeared from his hand and he immediately sliced it at Su Mo’s finger.
The short blade heavily struck against the sword finger with a loud bang, causing the King Sage Hall to shake violently.
As the sword finger and the short blade exploded apart, they turned into shockwaves that rolled out in all directions.
Many people’s bodies flashed as they dashed out of King Sage Hall in a hurry.
The battling shockwaves of Su Mo and Mo Jue’s fight was terrifying. If they stayed at the same spot, they would be heavily injured.
Strong shockwaves shook the King Sage Hall, but it was unable to do harm to the building.
Su Mo and Mo Jue retreated backward at the same time, forced away by the shockwaves.
Su Mo took ten steps backward while Mo Jue retreated by a thousand feet.
Shoosh shoosh shoosh!
The crowd did not dare to stay and watch the battle outcome of the two as they rushed out of King Sage Hall.
Even Linghu Tianhua and Sun Dashan followed the crowd out of the hall, not daring to stay in the heat of the battle.
