Chapter 302: Your Pride Is Worth Nothing to Me!
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
At the banquet, in the courtyard, the words spoken by Zhu Shaojing had caused all eyes to be fixed on Su Mo.
Some looked at him with disdain, while others looked at him mockingly.
” This guy is not confident. He’s clearly arrogant! A braggart!”
“No one in the neighboring countries is a match for him?”
“Only the top 30 on the List of Top 100 Talents are qualified to take him on?”
“This guy is so arrogant and boastful. Even the third prince, Jia Yuanji, would not say such a thing!”
Those from the List of Top 100 Talents looked at Su Mo coldly.
No one doubted Zhu Shaojing, as he was an expert among the Top 100 Talents. He would not lie!
Jia Yuanji squinted his eyes and sized Su Mo up. Su Mo’s cultivation was only at Middle Lv 3 True Spirit Realm and his aura was not strong. Jia Yuanji shook his head and could not be bothered with Su Mo.
He had seen many arrogant people, but they usually ended up in a tragedy. These people were not worth his attention!
Feng Xiu, Leng Yunfeng, Ji Xuehan, and the rest of them who had crossed paths with Su Mo before all looked at Su Mo in shock.
They knew that Su Mo had extraordinary talent and great strength. However, they did not expect him to be so arrogant.
Mu Lingping and Xu Xinghan looked shocked and their mouths were slightly twitching.
Both of them knew that Su Mo was extraordinary—when they had witnessed him making a breakthrough in his cultivation earlier in the morning, they were a little stunned. However, they did not believe that Su Mo was so powerful!
Seeing that he had successfully put Su Mo in dire straits, Zhu Shaojing laughed to himself. “Su Mo, although I’m no match for you, there are so many people from the List of Top 100 Talents here. I don’t believe that no one can defeat you!”
Zhu Shaojing was gloating in his heart. He wanted to teach Su Mo a lesson for injuring him the day before. However, since he was not as powerful as Su Mo, he could only use this method.
He wanted to make use of others to teach Su Mo a lesson.
When Su Mo heard what Zhu Shaojing had said, he was stunned. He had never said such a thing!
“What is this!”
Su Mo was angry. Zhu Shaojing was on the List of Top 100 Talents but he had resorted to such underhanded means.
Su Mo immediately knew his intention. Zhu Shaojing wanted to instigate the other experts to fight him!
Although Su Mo was angry, he remained calm. His current cultivation was at Lv 3 True Spirit Realm, but his physical strength was comparable to that of an expert at Lv 5. His strength had multiplied more than 10 times. He thought nothing of those who were present.
A youth in blue flew to the middle of the courtyard. He immediately fixed his eyes on Su Mo.
“Young man, you’re arrogant. Don’t you know that you need to have an ability in order to be arrogant?” He looked at Su Mo with a sneer and shouted, “Get in here! I’ll show you that your pride is worth nothing to me!”
“Hahaha, it’s Bright Jade Hand, Shi Jie. This guy is getting himself into trouble!”
“Shi Jie is ranked 81st on the List of Top 100 Talents. He’s more powerful than Zhu Shaojing!”
“This guy is too arrogant. He needs to be taught a lesson!”
Seeing that the youth in blue had stepped forward, the crowd started to talk among themselves. Finally, someone from Top 100 Talents could not take it lying down!
Su Mo sat at the table, holding his cup of wine. He glanced at Shi Jie, slightly shook his head, and said, “You’re no match for me!”
“I’m no match for you?”
Upon hearing this, Shi Jie’s face turned pale. He said coldly, “It seems that what Zhu Shaojing said is true. You indeed are arrogant and boastful!
“If you won’t fight me, I’ll hit you until you fight back!” Shi Jie shouted and attacked Su Mo, throwing out a palm strike in the air toward him.
In an instant, a white jade palm that was more than one meter long whizzed at Su Mo.
Although the Genuine Vitality Palm was not huge, its power was condensed. It was eye-catching, like a piece of white jade.
Those who were sitting beside Su Mo were shocked. They quickly backed away, leaving Su Mo behind.
Even Mu Lingping and Xu Xinghan left quickly.
The white jade palm was right in front of Su Mo.
A cold light flashed across Su Mo’s eyes. He had not expected Shi Jie to be so unreasonable. He had not stepped out, but Shi Jie had still attacked him.
“Scram!” Su Mo shouted and retaliated.
He remained seated at the table. His long sword flew out from its sheath, letting out a sword radiance. The Sword Qi tore the white jade palm apart and shot toward Shi Jie.
“What?” Shi Jie was shocked. He had never expected Su Mo to counter his attack so easily. The Sword Qi was powerful and approaching him.
“Destroy!” Shi Jie shouted and countered the attack with his palms. He threw out white palm prints to form a thick wall in front of him.
The next instant, the Sword Qi hit the wall.
The Sword Qi was extremely sharp. It tore the wall apart and slashed onto Shi Jie’s chest.
“Ah!” Shi Jie let out a shriek. He moved vigorously backward a few hundred meters and knocked down a number of tables.
“Oh no! Shi Jie has been defeated!”
“Just one strike! Shi Jie, one of the Top 100 Talents, has been defeated in just one strike! This guy is formidable!”
“Who is he? Since he’s so powerful, why have I not heard of him before?”
With Shi Jie’s defeat, the place was in an uproar.
All the experts from the List of Top 100 Talents looked grave.
Zhu Shaojing turned pale. He had not expected things to turn out this way.
Although Shi Jie was only a few ranks higher than him, his strength was much more powerful than Zhu Shaojing’s. However, Shi Jie was still no match for Su Mo.
Zhu Shaojing thought within himself, “Su Mo’s cultivation has reached Lv 3 True Spirit Realm. Only Hong Lian, Han Yijian, and the others can defeat him.”
“How can this be?” Shi Jie shouted in shock.
There was a bloody sword mark about half a foot long on his chest, which blood continually flowed out of.
This blow had nearly cost him his life.
“Your pride is worth nothing to me!” said Su Mo as he looked at him with disdain. He then drank the wine from his cup.
“You…” Shi Jie was enraged and his face turned pale. However, he was no match for Su Mo.
“Hahaha! This guy is truly extraordinary!” a stocky youth said while laughing heartily. He carried a huge axe and strode toward the middle of the courtyard.
“How should I address you? I’m Wu Kai from Cloud-reaching Country. I would like to spar with you!” The stocky youth cupped his fist as he spoke to Su Mo.
Wu Kai looked grave and did not take Su Mo lightly. Su Mo had defeated Shi Jie in one blow and that was enough to make him take Su Mo seriously.
