Chapter 2027: Did Not Battle?
In Wind-thunder Tribe.
Once Elder Jiang had brought Su Mo and the rest back to the sect, he rushed excitedly to the grand hall.
Furthermore, the elder ordered men to notify all the Martial Sages and the Sect Leader in the sect to head to Conference Hall.
Su Mo and the sect members sat down in the hall, waiting for the arrival of all the Martial Sages in the sect.
Su Mo was at a loss for words. Was the matter so serious? Why did Elder Jiang have to create such a scene?
Shoosh! SHoosh! Shoosh!
In a few moments, Martial Sages entered the hall one by one. There were old and young Martial Sages among them.
“Elder Jiang, what is the matter?”
“Didn’t you all head to the Dark Shadow Tribe for the contest? Did something happen?”
“What is it?”
Many people who arrived at the crowd asked Elder Jiang questions, wearing confusion on their faces.
The group did not understand why the elder had to invite everyone to the Conference Hall.
“Everyone, please sit! Once the Sect Leader arrives, I will explain the matter!” Elder Jiang waved his hand.
Everyone nodded their heads. Elder Jiang’s cultivation rank was high and they did not force him to answer them.
Furthermore, the Sect Leader was in the sect and he would arrive quickly.
A while later, more than sixty Martial Sages had gathered in the grand hall.
This was almost all the Martial Sages of the Wind-thunder Sect. There were others who weren’t in the sect.
Right at that moment, a figure flew into the hall and instantly appeared on the main seat. The man lowered himself slowly on the main seat.
“Hm?” Su Mo’s eyebrows jumped. The speed of the man was so fast, he could barely catch the movement.
Lifting his head up, Su Mo saw a large middle-aged man wearing a long robe. He had a burly finger and a square-shaped face that made him look stern and domineering.
“Greetings to Sect Leader!”
“Greetings to Sect Leader!”
The group of Martial Sages from Wind-thunder Sect rose quickly and bowed to the middle-aged man.
This man was the Sect Leader of Wind-thunder Sect, Lei Qiantong
Su Mo followed the crowd and bowed towards the middle-aged man.
Lei Qiantong waved his silver robe aside and stared at Elder Jiang as he asked, “Elder Jiang, what important thing did you call us here for?”
The Sect Leader’s voice was deep and husky, full of the might of a king.
“Sect Leader, our Wind-thunder Sect has won the battle!” Elder Jiang smiled gleefully as he replied.
The Sect Leader instantly jumped in surprise, he had not expected the sect to win.
“We actually won!”
“Ha ha! My Ultimacy has been stuck at the peak of the Rank 6 Realm for 300 years. I can finally get a chance to comprehend the Ultimacy at Sky Tyrant Tribe!”
“What a surprise, I didn’t expect the sect to win!”
The group of Martial Sages broke into smiles, this was something that they were all hoping for.
There was a treasured place in the Sky Tyrant Tribe called the ‘Myriad Path Empty World’ that was a valuable place to comprehend Ultimacies.
This was the place where all Martial Sages in Dark Region yearned to go.
However, the place was strictly controlled by Sky Tyrant Tribe. Aside from Sky Tyrant Tribe, the other superpowers had to compete to obtain the qualifications to head there.
Other superpowers that were not under the Sky Tyrant Tribe had no right to go there at all.
A smile stretched across Lei Qiantong’s face as he stared at the group, specifically at Huo Yun, Wang Li, Lin Man and Wan Shengxiang before he said, “The four of you won the contest for us. The sect will reward you all!”
Lei Qiantong’s voice boomed through the hall.
The Wind-thunder Sect had not won in the contest for a few years and hence the win this time was very significant.
“The four of you really did the sect proud!”
“Shengxiao, did you defeat An Jian this time? Or did you draw with him?”
“Lin Man, Wang Li, did you two defeat the top godly talents of the Dark Shadow Tribe?”
“It seems that you guys improved by a lot!”
The older Martial Sages of the sect threw out a string of questions as they smiled warmly at the geniuses.
That was because the victory of the contest meant that all of them would be able to go to Myriad Path Empty World to comprehend their Ultimacies.
However, everyone was curious as to what the outcome of the battles were.
After all, there were four battles in total. Who had won and who had lost?
To take the final victory, the Wind-thunder Sect minimally had to win two battles and lose and draw one battle. Either that or win two and draw two battles.
Granted, they could also win three battles and draw or lose the last one.
Everyone threw aside the thought of all four battles being won. The greatest possibility was that two battles had been won.
Elder Jiang and the group of young Martial Sages remained silent at the questions bombarded at them.
Especially the four geniuses lowered their heads as their lips quivered.
None of them had the chance to fight against the Dark Shadow Trie.
However, the Martial Sages were asking them questions and the four felt thoroughly ashamed.
Su Mo maintained his calm face as he did not speak. This matter was not important to him and hence he wasn’t agitated.
“Elder Jiang, what is going on?”
Lei Qiantong observed the shrunken in shoulders of the four and asked Elder Jiang suspiciously.
“This… the four of them did not participate in the battle against the Dark Shadow Tribe!” Elder Jiang stuttered. He knew the moment he explained the matter that he would shock the Sect Leader.
“What?” Lei Qiantong instantly exclaimed in shock as a bewildered look cross his face.
The four did not participate in the battle against the Dark Shadow Tribe?
Then how did they win?
Did the Dark Shadow Tribe admit defeat voluntarily?
That wasn’t possible!
Could it be that another four people participated in the contest instead of the four? That didn’t seem possible either.
Aside from the four, the others seemed to not stand a chance at all.
“What is going on?”
“Didn’t participate? Then how did you win?”
“Aside from Shengxiang and the others, who else could win?”
The group of older Martial Sages asked in confusion.
The sect had already chosen Wan Shengxiang, Lin Man, Wang Li and Huo Yun to participate in the contest.
Yet, what did Elder Jiang mean by the four not participating in the battle although the contest was over?
Right at that point, many eyes of the young Martial Sages who went to spectate the contest shifted to a single man.
Everyone turned to look at a young, clean, refined man who was a Middle Stage Martial Sage.
Many people did not recognize this man but they knew it was Su Mo who had recently entered the Wind-thunder Sect.
This made many people confused. Why were all the young Martial Sages looking at Su Mo? What has the matter got to do with Su Mo?
“Elder Jiang, what is it? Explain thoroughly!”
Lei Qiantong demanded, his patience running out.
