Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
After leaving the Inner Palace, Su Mo quickly left the Outer Palace and shot toward the sky.
He did not know where he was headed either. After some thought, he decided to find a large city in search of the materials he lacked to craft his Natal Spiritual Sword.
As he was flying by the Emperor Spiritual City, located just at the foot of Emperor Xuan mountain range, an idea suddenly came to him and he headed for that city.
Emperor Spiritual City was still as lively as ever, and many people thronged the streets, including countless martial artists.
Su Mo walked into the city and headed straight for the towering city wall.
He stared at the towering city wall in front of him and produced his Sky-crushing Sword with a flip of his palm.
Su Mo’s arm moved and his Sky-crushing Sword started to move in fine strokes across the city wall.
As the Sky-crushing sword danced across the solid city wall, it slashed marks on the city wall as if it was carving up tofu.
After a few breaths, Su Mo stopped and immediately left the city.
“What was that person doing earlier?”
“I’m not sure either. He seemed to be writing something?”
“Let’s go and take a look!”
There were quite a few martial artists outside the city gate and Su Mo’s strange action had attracted their attention. After Su Mo left, many of them walked forward, trying to see what Su Mo had written.
When they realized what had been etched on the city wall, they were all stunned.
A string of words was etched on the city wall, as clear as day.
“Shangguan Hao, fulfilling a promise made five years ago, our final showdown will be on 8th October – Su Mo!”
These few words were splashed grandly across the wall, giving off a stunning aura, as if written by an invincible swordsman supremely confident in his own abilities.
“What? Someone wants to challenge the Holy Son of Emperor Xuan Palace – Shanguan Hao!”
“How could that be?”
“Who is this Su Mo? Why have I not heard of him before?”
“Is he trying to court death by challenging Shangguan Hao?”
“This is probably a prank. No one has heard of this name before!”
Most people were completely shocked upon seeing those words.
Someone had actually dared to publicly challenge Shangguan Hao!
This was big news that would surely stun the entire Central Continent!
There were also many people who remained skeptical. This person might just be a prankster who might not even show up on the day itself!
Regardless, Su Mo’s words had attracted a lot of attention.
Soon, the news that someone had publicly challenged Shangguan Hao spread like wildfire.
Many martial artists came to look at the writing on the wall and packed the surrounding area to the brim.
“Who is this Su Mo?”
“How dare someone as unknown as he dare to challenge the Holy Son of Emperor Xuan Palace. He must be courting death!”
“This might just be a joke by someone looking to have some fun!”
The crowd chattered excitedly and Su Mo’s fame started to spread all across Central Continent.
Due to Emperor Spiritual City’s close proximity to Emperor Xuan Palace, news of this event soon spread there.
The entire Palace was in an uproar when they heard someone had challenged Shangguan Hao. Many disciples of Emperor Xuan Palace headed toward Emperor Spiritual City, completely sealing the area.
After an hour, a couple arrived at the scene together. They were Shangguan Hao and Xi’er.
They stood beneath the city wall and stared silently at the words splashed across the wall, but harbored completely different feelings!
“Shangguan Hao, I told you Brother Su Mo would come!” Xi’er’s aloof face broke into a smile.
Xi’er was extremely excited and a rosy flush spread across her beautiful features which made her look even more gorgeous than before.
Brother Su Mo was finally back after four years!
She wondered how high was his cultivation now and if he had changed a lot.
Xi’er could not wait to see Su Mo again, but at the same time, she was also worried.
She knew better than anyone how terrifying Shanguan Hao could be. Su Mo would not stand a chance against him!
It was not that Xi’er was underestimating Su Mo, but rather, Shangguan Hao was just too strong.
Furthermore, as Shangguan Hao’s love rival, Shnguan Hao would not rest until Su Mo was dead.
Xi’er felt both happy and sad at the same time.
There was nothing she could do to stop this except wait patiently for Su Mo to return.
“So what? He’s just courting death!’ Shangguan Hao’s face darkened as he clocked Xi’er expression and his eyes turned cold and hard.
He truly did not expect a lowly aborigine to actually be able to make it all the way to Central Continent and even to Emperor Xuan Palace!
How did he do it? Did he manage to break through to Martial King Realm over the past four years?
How could it be?
Shangguan Hao just could not wrap his head around it.
Shangguan Hao was well aware that this was definitely not a prank since no one else besides 13th Elder knew of his five-year promise with Su Mo.
The only explanation was that Su Mo had truly arrived at Emperor Spiritual City.
Shangguan Hao felt extremely disgusted that a puny aborigine would dare to go after his woman. Su Mo must be courting death!
“Come at me! I will let you witness your beloved woman writhing under me and let you die in despair!” Shangguan Hao thought to himself.
“Shangguan Hao, the victor will only be determined after the battle!” Xi’er said.
“Do you actually believe that this aborigine would be able to defeat me?” Shangguan Hao scoffed as if he had just heard the funniest thing in the world.
Xi’er remained silent. Although she did not believe that Su Mo emerge victorious, but she kept reminding herself that since Brother Su Mo was here, it meant that he must possess a certain level of confidence.
Shangguan Hao laughed scornfully at Xi’er’s silence. He then reached out with his finger and his finger radiance grew several meters tall.
Shangguan Hao used his finger to carve four words under Su Mo’s words.
“None shall surpass me!”
These four words were equally grand and gave off an aura of invincibility as well as an overbearing sense of dominance over all.
Shangguan Hao immediately returned to Emperor Xuan Palace after carving those four words.
He did not try to hunt Su Mo down. Since Su Mo did not make an appearance, he guessed that Su Mo must have left Di Ling City.
Central Continent is so big and wide that there was no way he would be able to find Su Mo.
Therefore, Shangguan Hao did not wish to waste time. After all, if Su Mo dared to make an appearance on 8th October, he would crush him like the ant he was!
Xi’er stood quietly beneath the city wall and gazed at the words Su Mo left behind.
After a long while, she finally muttered, “Brother Su Mo, I’ll be waiting!”
She then turned back to Emperor Xuan Palace.
After Shangguan Hao and Xi’er’s departure, this area became even more crowded. Everyone now knew that both Shangguan Hao and Di Lanxi recognized this Su Mo.
Therefore, this challenge must be truly happening. This unknown Su Mo would face-off against Shangguan Hao on the 8th of October!
