Chapter 2016: Can I Take Part In The Fight?
“What are the rules for the fight?” Su Mo asked. As long as he could take part in the fight, he had absolute confidence in winning.
Thus, he had to know the rules.
“The fight is held by our sect, Eight-eyes Tribe, and Dark Shadow Tribe. There are a total of four rounds, mainly for the Beginning Realm Martial Sages, Middle Realm Martial Sages, End Realm Martial Sages, and the Great Completion Realm Martial Sages. The party that wins the most number of rounds will emerge as the winner!” Xu Ming explained.
“What if two parties win the same number of rounds?” Su Mo asked again.
“They will compete with each other!” Xu Ming replied.
“I see!” Su Mo said. He realized that he could only participate in one round if he had the opportunity to do so and it was only for the Middle Martial Sage Realm.
“Brother Su, the fight is for the gifted geniuses. Our sect has already selected the candidates and it is not for people like us. I just hope that the gifted geniuses in our sect win!” Xu Ming sighed and stood up.
“Brother Su, if there is nothing else, I will make a move first!” Xu Ming said.
“Brother Xu, please wait a while. Will you be going to watch the fight?” Su Mo asked.
“Of course!” Xu Ming nodded.
“Great. Let’s go and watch together!” Su Mo said with a smile. Although he did not seem able to take part in the fight at that moment, he wanted to see if there would be an opportunity for him to do so in the future.
“Sure. I will leave now!” Xu Ming nodded and did not think much of it. He then left Su Mo’s place.
This is interesting!
After Xu Ming had left, Su Mo smiled wryly. As the most gifted genius in Infinite Region and the most powerful King Sage in the history of Infinite Region, he would definitely be able to win the fight.
He only hoped that he could have an opportunity to take part in the fight.
Shortly, Su Mo started to cultivate in the garret.
Time passed quickly. After more than 20 days, Xu Ming’s voice was heard outside Su Mo’s garrett, saying, “Brother Su, the fight will be held today!”
When Su Mo heard what Xu Ming had said, he quickly ended his cultivation and walked out of his garrett.
Xu Ming was in a brocade robe and he stood outside Su Mo’s garrett with a smile.
“Brother Xu!” Su Mo cupped his fist at Xu Ming.
“Brother Su, we will be leaving with the other Martial Sages one hour later. Come, let’s go to the mountain peak!” Xu Ming said.
Su Mo nodded and followed Xu Ming to the mountain peak.
There was a large platform on the mountain peak. When Su Mo and Xu Ming reached the mountain peak, there were already more than 30 people waiting there.
“Senior Sister Lin, Senior Brother Wang, Junior Brother Huo…!”
Xu Ming greeted many people and he was especially respectful to one of them by the name of Senior Sister Lin.
Su Mo sized the people up. All of them were youths and their cultivation levels were from the Beginning Martial Sage Realm to the Peak of End Martial Sage Realm. The cultivation level of Senior Sister Lin was at the Peak of End Martial Sage Realm.
Senior Sister Lin was in a long blue dress. She was taller than most men and she had slender legs.
She looked fair and beautiful and she had delicate features.
However, she had a haughty look.
“Junior Brother Xu, is this the Martial Sage who joined our sect recently?”
One of the Middle Realm Martial Sages asked Xu Ming as he looked at Su Mo.
“Yes. His name is Su Mo. He joined our sect one month ago!” Xu Ming nodded. He then introduced Su Mo to the people who were present.
“Nice to meet you!” Su Mo cupped his fist and greeted them.
“Nice to meet you!”
Many of them greeted Su Mo. Although Su Mo had just joined the sect, he was a Peak Middle Realm Martial Sage and no one dared to look down on him.
“You can be a Foreign Elder. Why did you choose to be a disciple?” Senior Sister Lin asked flatly as she looked at Su Mo.
For the past few years, a few Martial Sages who had joined Wind-thunder Sect had chosen to be Foreign Elders. However, Su Mo had chosen to be an Inner Sect Disciple and that baffled her.
“Senior Sister Lin, as a Foreign Elder, I will remain as a Foreign Elder. However, as a disciple, I can progress and become better!” Su Mo replied with a smile.
“You are ambitious!”
Senior Sister Lin smiled and said, “This fight is a great opportunity for you to widen your horizon. You have cultivated on your own without any big sect to groom you thus, you will see a great disparity in the various aspects!”
“Yes!” Su Mo nodded and did not argue with her.
He stopped chatting and continued to wait for the rest of the disciples to arrive.
After an hour, two people flew over from a nearby mountain and landed on the mountain peak.
One of them was an elder and the other was a young man.
The elder was in sackcloth. He was thin and old in age but he looked energetic.
The young man was in a robe with a white print, and he looked cold and tall.
The two of them were King Sages who were at the Great Completion Martial Sage Realm.
Su Mo sensed that the elder’s cultivation level was not far from the Empty God Realm.
“Greetings, Elder Jiang and Senior Brother Wan!”
When the disciples saw the two of them, they bowed to them. Apparently, the two of them were holding high positions.
“You may dispense with the formalities!”
Elder Jiang waved his hand and looked at the disciples. He nodded when he saw that those who were supposed to be around were already there.
For the fight, they only needed four disciples, each from the Beginning Martial Sage Realm, MiddleMartial Sage Realm, End Martial Sage Realm, and the Great Completion Martial Sage Realm.
The rest of them were there to watch the fight.
When Elder Jiang saw Su Mo, he asked, “Are you the Su Mo who just joined the sect?”
Many of the higher echelons had heard of the Martial Sage who had just joined the Sect.
After all, there were not many Martial Sages in Wind-thunder Sect and the higher echelons were concerned about everyone, including Su Mo, who was not holding a high position.
“Yes, I am!”
Su Mo nodded. After pondering for a while, he asked, “Elder, can I take part in the fight?”
Su Mo had asked Elder Jiang as it was apparent that he was the leader and he could make the decision.
Su Mo had put forth the request as he was worried that Wind-thunder Sect was too weak and they were unable to win the fight.
He would have no worries if he could take part in the fight.
“Do you want to take part in the fight?”
When Elder Jiang heard Su Mo’s request, he was stunned. Xu Ming, Senior Sister Lin, and the rest of the disciples were dumbstruck as well.
They were speechless. The fight is for the geniuses from the various forces. You have cultivated on your own and you have just joined the sect. How dare you request to take part in the fight?
Xu Ming was especially taken aback. He had told Su Mo before that the fight was for geniuses but Su Mo still wanted to mess around.
“You are not fit to take part as you have just joined the sect!”
A cold voice resounded. The one who spoke was the other King Sage by the name of Senior Brother Wan.
“I can’t take part because I have just joined the sect?” Su Mo frowned and looked at Senior Brother Wan. What has the duration of time spent in the sect got to do with the fight?
“This kind of fight is not for people like you!” Senior Brother Wan curled up his lips and sneered.
Even he did not have the confidence in defeating the geniuses from Dark Shadow Tribe and Eight-eyes Tribe. The new disciple was being too presumptuous.
However, he did not lose his cool. He believed that Su Mo was one of those martial artists who had cultivated on his own and he had not seen the world yet.
Su Mo had just joined Wind-thunder Sect and he must be eager to perform so that he would be valued by the sect.
