Chapter 918: Di Shi
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
There was a lively scene in Emperor Xuan Palace and a lot of high-ranking experts had arrived and chatted with each other.
On the ground and in the sky outside Emperor Xuan Palace, was also a large crowd of martial artists.
These people had to stay outside as they did not receive an invitation from Emperor Xuan Palace.
Still, some of the curious martial artists could hardly miss the ceremony that brought so many experts together!
There were more martial artists outside Emperor Xuan Palace than inside.
The managers of Emperor Xuan Palace let them have their own way, as long as they did not try to break into the Sect.
Among the crowd, were two beautiful women, Qian Xunyue and Hong Qingxuan.
However, they were a fair distance from each other.
Qian Xunyue still wore her previous dress, a pure white skirt, and a white veil. With the veil covering her face, no one could see her face.
With complex emotions in her beautiful eyes, Qian Xunyue looked at the square. She did not want to come but had still done so in the end.
As she had followed Su Mo to the Emperor Spiritual City and had seen the words on the city wall written by Su Mo, she knew that today was the day when Su Mo was going to challenge Shangguan Hao.
With a sigh, Qian Xunyue brows slightly wrinkled. In her view, Su Mo was just courting disaster.
To challenge Shangguan Hao meant to challenge the whole Emperor Xuan Palace and that was like an egg trying to crush a stone.
Qian Xunyue somehow became anxious and could not suppress her anxiety no matter what.
“Why I worried about him?” Qian Xunyue had mixed emotions. On the one hand, she was hoping that Su Mo would die, but on the other hand, she was concerned for Su Mo’s safety.
Hong Qingxuan was also among the crowd but she was far away from her Master. They had not noticed each other for now.
Hong Qingxuan looked pale for she had had a tough period of time since Su Mo had told her what had happened to him and Qian Xunyue.
After she had left the Heaven-sea City, she had been wandering and thinking about that thing all the time.
The fates had conspired against her and she could not be Su Mo’s lover anymore. They might only be able to be friends in the future.
She hoped that Su Mo could be with her Master now that they had done what a husband and a wife should do.
“Brother Su Mo, I hope you can get through these difficulties!” Hong Qingxuan murmured to herself, looking gloomy.
On the outer square, the visitors’ stands had been full of guests but there was still no one on the central platform.
The guests were chatting and waiting.
Among the group of experts from the Netherworld Devil Sect, Wu Shan was talking quietly with Huangfu Qing, who was sitting behind him.
“Elder Huangfu, are you sure Su Mo will come?” Wushan asked flatly.
“Yes, my young master! I know my disciple well, he’ll definitely come!” Huangfu Qing answered certainly.
“What if this Su Mo is not your disciple Su Mo?” Wu Shan asked again.
“Young master, it can’t be wrong. I even sent people to the Hong Domain in the East Continent in order to ascertain his identity. My investigations show that my disciple did make an engagement with Shangguan Hao.” Huangfu Qing answered.
“Good!” Wushan nodded slightly.
Huangfu Qing then asked with a smile, “Young Master, how do you feel about this body?”
“Well, it’s not bad!” There was a smile on Wushan’s face. He said, “I’ve completely suppressed his soul and now I have full control over this body.”
“That’s good! Congratulations! Young master!” Huangfu Qing nodded. It was Huangfu Qing who had captured and given Li Feng to Wu Shan, who was just in need of a good body.
“Elder Huangfu, thank you!” Wu Shan said. He was very satisfied with Li Feng’s body.
His body had been destroyed a few months ago during the battle against the Crown Prince of Flood-dragon tribe in East Sea and he had almost died.
He would have died if it were not for his father’s connections. He survived, but there was no suitable body for him.
The body he needed must be extremely strong, but there were few Body-refining Experts in the world. Thanks to Huangfu Qing, he now had a body.
Though this body was still weak, it was very suitable for him.
“It’s my honor to serve you! My young master!” Huangfu Qing said with an ingratiating smile.
“Shan’er, how much strength do you have now?” A thin old man sitting in front of Wushan suddenly turned around and asked him.
The old man was small and thin, with a long, narrow face, and dark eyes.
His name was Yan Tai, the First Elder of Netherworld Devil Sect. With a cultivation of Lv 9 Martial Royal Realm, he was one of the top experts in that Sect.
“About 80%!” Wu Shan answered with a smile, “I’ve heard Shangguan Hao has broken through into the Martial Royal Realm. I’d like to see how powerful he is!”
Yan Tai nodded slightly. Suddenly, his gaze hardened and he said, “Di Shi is coming!”
Everybody fell silent and looked up.
They saw a large group of Emperor Xuan Palace’s experts flying over.
There were over 20 of them, all of whom were the top elders in Emperor Xuan Palace. The 13th Elder was one of them.
They were led by a man in a violet gold long robe. He was in his forties, tall and mighty, with a square face. He looked dignified and aggressive.
That man was the lord of Emperor Xuan Palace. His name was Di Shi, and he was one of the strongest men in the Firmament World.
Rumors had it that Di Shi was at the peak of Lv 9 Martial Royal Realm, and some others said that he was a Emperor-to-be.
However, no one knew exactly what realm he was at because no one had ever seen his fights.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
That group led by Di Shi soon landed on the platform in the center of the outer square.
That platform was like a catwalk.
Its front end was where the wedding was going to be held, while its back end was high, and had dozens of luxurious golden seats on it.
Di Shi and the other experts from the Emperor Xuan Palace landed before their seats.
“Good morning! Palace Master!”
“Good morning! Mr. Di!”
“Morning! Palace Master!”
Numerous disciples of Emperor Xuan Palace immediately saluted Di Shi. People from all the other Sects also rose up and saluted Di Shi.
Di Shi stood tall and straight on the high platform. He waved his sleeve and said, “At ease, everyone!”
Di Shi’s voice was loud and deep. After his bright eyes rapidly swept around the square, he said, while saluting the others, “Thank you for coming to attend the wedding of my daughter and my disciple!”
“You’re too kind! Mr. Di!”
“Palace Master Di, don’t mention it!”
All the guests greeted Di Shi with friendly salutations. Although all of them were big shots, they did not dare to put on airs in front of Di Shi.
