Chapter 676: Gong Lin
Hua Suiyu followed Huangfu Qing.
Su Mo was shocked. Is Seventh Senior Sister attending the Talents’ Grand Gathering?
Huangfu Qing came before Su Mo and Jun Wuxi and said, “Let’s go!”
He waved his sleeve, and an air blast swirled out that carried Su Mo, Jun Wuxi, and Hua Suiyu to his side.
The void tore apart and caused a rift to be formed. Huangfu Qing moved into the space rift at lightning speed.
The space rift was dark, cold, empty, and turbulent.
While under the attack of the spatial turbulence, ordinary True Darkness Realm martial artists would have turned to ashes.
However, Huangfu Qing walked on it as though it was flat ground. He traversed more than 1,000 kilometers in one step, which was astoundingly fast.
Su Mo and his two Seniors were well protected by Huangfu Qing, so they also had it easy.
“Master, are we not going with the other eight peaks?” Jun Wuxi asked Huangfu Qing.
“No. There are too many of them. We’ll gather there!” Huangfu Qing shook his head and said.
There were too many disciples from the other eight peaks, and he had no intention of traveling with them.
Huangfu Qing then increased his speed, and the void tore apart as the few of them traveled through it.
“Seventh Senior Sister, are you participating in the Talents’ Grand Gathering?” Su Mo asked Hua Suiyu, who was beside him.
Hua Suiyu shook her head and said with a smile, “I’m going there as a spectator. Master had refused to let me go, but I pestered him!”
“I see!” Su Mo nodded.
“So many geniuses from the East Continent will be attending the Talents’ Grand Gathering. How can I miss it!” Hua Suiyu said.
“That’s right!” Su Mo agreed. No geniuses would want to miss such a gathering. They would benefit even if they were only spectators.
Su Mo and Hua Suiyu chatted for an hour, and they realized that they were already at their destination.
A huge, old town stood on the border of a mountain.
It was an old town that was about 800 kilometers wide, and the place was bustling with people.
The void above the old town cracked open, and four figures walked out.
They were Su Mo, his Master, and two Seniors.
“Look, here comes another Martial Royal Realm martial artist!”
“That is the peak master of Towering Sky Peak from Celestialspirit Sect!”
“The three of them should be his disciples, and one of them is Jun Wuxi!” When Su Mo appeared with his Master and Seniors, there was a commotion.
The people immediately recognized Huangfu Qing and Jun Wuxi.
It was rare to find a Martial Royal Realm martial artist in the entire East Continent, let alone seeing one.
Huangfu Qing did not stay and brought Su Mo and his Seniors to a manor on the foot of the mountain.
Within a few moments, the four of them landed in front of the gate.
It was a large manor with high walls that looked like a small city.
Su Mo lifted his head to look at the entrance and saw the words “Blood-plate Manor”.
Two middle-aged black-robed men were guarding the entrance.
Their blood Qi was dense, and they were obviously from Cold-blood Hall.
Su Mo was not sure of their cultivation, but he felt that they were extremely powerful
Martial King Realm experts!
Su Mo was shocked that the two guards were Martial King Realm experts!
If the guards were already at this level, one could imagine the scale of this gathering!
“Let’s go in!” Huangfu Qing called out to Su Mo and his two Seniors and went into the manor.
The two guards did not stop them as they noticed Huangfu Qing’s cultivation.
As the four of them were about to enter, wind-breaking sounds broke out behind them, and many figures landed in front of the manor.
“Haha! Huangfu Qing, it’s been years since we have last met!” The one taking the lead was an elder with a radiant look. He laughed out loud when he saw Huangfu Qing.
Huangfu Qing stopped and turned to look at the elder. He said with a smile, “Vice Palace Master Tai Shen, you still look the same after so many years!”
Huangfu Qing was respectful to the radiant-looking elder.
He was from Topmost Palace, one of the seven top forces in the East Continent. On top of that, he was the Vice Palace Master, and many were wary of him because of his great strength.
“Haha! You too!” The elder laughed and looked gallant.
Su Mo stopped moving and sized the people up. There were more than 60 of them, and, other than the radiant-looking elder, six other middle-aged people exuded vast pure aura. They were obviously extremely powerful. They were not at the Martial King Realm, but Martial Royal Realm.
More than 50 of them were young geniuses.
Su Mo immediately noticed a familiar face, Sikong Yan.
Sikong Yan was looking at him as well and curled his lips into a sneer. He seemed to be saying, “You’d better watch out!”
Su Mo ignored him and looked at the rest of the people. There were a few of them whose aura was more powerful than Sikong Yan’s.
Su Mo saw a haughty-looking youth with long hair, who gave Su Mo the feeling that he was a dangerous person.
This is an expert!
Su Mo secretly marked this person down. He believed that he must be one of the geniuses in the top 10 of the List of Top 1,000 Talents.
Huangfu Qing and Vice Palace Master Tai Shen exchanged a few kind words before entering the manor, and Su Mo and his Seniors quickly followed behind.
When Vice Palace Master Tai Shen saw that Huangfu Qing and his disciples had left, he glanced at Su Mo and his Seniors and nodded. He said, “These three disciples of Celestialspirit Sect are pretty good!”
At one glance, Vice Palace Master Tai Shen could tell that Su Mo and his two Seniors were extraordinary. They lost out only on their cultivation.
“Other than Luo Yan and An Nuan, the rest in Celestialspirit Sect are useless!” the haughty-looking youth standing beside Tai Shen said flatly. He did not seem to have regard for anyone.
When Tai Shen heard it, he turned his head and asked, “Gong Lin, how confident are you in this Talents’ Grand Gathering?”
After pondering for a while, Gong Lin said with a serious look, “Other than Wenren Tiandu, I have more than 60 percent confidence in dealing with the rest, including Xie Tianqiong and Jian Chen.”
“That’s great!” When Tai Shen heard it, he was overjoyed. He urged him and said, “Gong Lin, if you can defeat Xie Tianqiong and Jian Chen, I’ll reward you handsomely, even if you lose to Wenren Tiandu!”
“Thank you, Vice Palace Master!” Gong Lin cupped his fist at Tai Shen and said. He was not elated as he didn’t really care for the rewards. He wanted to have honor.
He had only one opponent in this Talents’ Grand Gathering, and that was Wenren Tiandu!
“Let’s go!” After a while, a big group of people from Topmost Palace went into the Blood-plate Manor.
