“Well, we’d better stop talking now. The wedding is about to begin. Please sit down!” Di Shi smiled and gestured for them to take their seats.
After the guests had taken their seats, Di Shi and his men sat down as well.
Later, Di Shi greeted the leaders of the major forces and then fell silent.
“Let’s welcome the Holy Son and the Holy Maiden!” An elder next to Di Shi who was hosting the ceremony stood up and said loudly.
His loud voice echoed throughout the whole Emperor Xuan Palace like a roaring thunder.
Everyone stopped talking. Suddenly, a red carpet appeared in the sky.
It was made up of pure red Dark Force and it shone brilliantly.
The red carpet extended from the entrance of the inner palace to the platform. It looked like a red river in the sky.
Then, the bride and groom finally appeared with everyone watching them closely.
Shangguan Hao and Xi’er walked up hand in hand, followed by 16 young and beautiful maids.
Shangguan Hao was more handsome than usual today. He had on a neat red robe, a golden crown on his head, and a large red artificial flower hanging on his chest.
There was a charming, confident, and dazzling smile on his face.
Xi ‘er wore a red dress and held herself gracefully. Her head was covered by a red veil and no one could see her face.
Shangguan Hao and Xi’er walked along the red carpet made of Dark Force toward the stage.
Shangguan Hao was the focus of attention and the most dazzling person at this moment.
Everyone knew that today was the most important day in Shangguan Hao’s life. This was not just a wedding. The wedding meant that he had been chosen as the descendant of Emperor Xuan Palace by Di Shi.
Although Shangguan Hao was just a disciple of Di Shi, his status would become totally different once he married Di Shi’s daughter, Di Lanxi.
As it were, Shangguan Hao would be the young Palace Master and the next Palace Master of Emperor Xuan Palace.
That would become an unchangeable fact after the wedding.
The moment Shangguan Hao and Xi’er appeared, Su Mo raised his head and watched them.
He glanced at Shangguan Hao and then looked at Xi’er.
His eyes narrowed at once because he found that Xi’er was walking with the assistance of the maid next to her, which indicated that Xi’er was being forced to walk. In other words, her cultivation had been sealed.
Su Mo’s glowered as he grew angry. “Di Shi! Are you going to treat your daughter like this?”
Are you going to sacrifice your daughter’s happiness just for your disciple’s sakes?
He was angry with Di Shi. After taking a deep breath, Su Mo rose and strode out of the woods and headed for them along the road.
Shangguan Hao and Xi’er soon came to the end of the red carpet and then flew down.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
They landed on the stage moments later.
Di Shi looked closely at Shangguan Hao and Xi’er and then nodded with satisfaction.
Next, he signaled to the elder hosting the ceremony that it was time to start the wedding.
“Well!” The host cleared his throat and said, “Now let the wedding begin. Bride and groom, please bow to heaven and earth!”
As the elder raised his voice on purpose, his words spread throughout the Emperor Xuan Palace, even Emperor Spiritual City nearby.
The whole place was quiet. Everyone was staring at the bride and the groom.
There was a smile on Shangguan Hao’s face. He glanced at Xi’er and then turned to look up.
Xi’er also turned around with the help of the maid.
The elder’s voice rang again.
Shangguan Hao placed his fists together and was about to bow to heaven and earth.
Suddenly, an unwelcome voice rose from a distance.
“Shangguan Hao, are you worthy?”
The voice was rather loud with derision and disdain.
The entire Emperor Xuan Palace was silent, and even the sound of a falling needle could be heard.
A lot of people were surprised. Is it Su Mo?
All of them had heard the rumor that a man named Su Mo would challenge Shangguan Hao on the 8th of October.
However, they all laughed him out of court. No one took it seriously.
Nobody had expected Su Mo to really have come.
Everyone turned to look at the entrance of the square.
Di Shi’s face was calm and quiet as if he knew that someone would interfere with the wedding.
“Is it you?”
The voice also did not surprise Shangguan Hao, who turned to look in the same direction with a smile on the corner of his mouth.
At the same time, Xi’er’s body began to tremble and she at once took off the red veil on her head.
A beautiful face that was as white as a jade appeared. She wore no make-up and was pure and lovely.
Her eyes were red and her eyelids were swollen. Her eyes were full of complex emotions, including happiness, worry, excitement, regret and many more. It was hard to describe all of them.
At this moment, many people were having mixed emotions.
Because they were floating in the air outside the outer square, Qian Xunyue and Hong Qingxuan were the first to see Su Mo, who was walking on the road.
Qian Xunyue knew that Su Mo was going to challenge Shangguan Hao, but she did not know the relationship between Su Mo and Xi’er. Neither did most of the guests.
“I hope you can leave this place safe and sound!” Qian Xunyue bit her lips and sighed to herself.
Hong Qingxuan’s emotions, however, was complicated. She looked at Su Mo, who was striding forward and glanced at Xi’er. She envied the bride.
She envied Xi’er, and that for her, Su Mo was unafraid of death and had gone through all kinds of hardships to be with her.
She would only be second to her.
Hong Qingxuan was not jealous. She just hoped that Su Mo could obtain what he wanted and be with Xi’er forever.
Thud! Thud! Thud!
The heavy footsteps sounded slow. Countless people were watching the man who was dressed in a black robe. Finally, Su Mo stood on the outer square.
Countless sharp eyes fixed on him in an instant.
These eyes were filled with different emotions, including curiosity, surprise, disdain, and murderous intent.
Most of them were curious. Only some of those who came from Netherworld Devil Sect looked at Su Mo with killing desire.
Su Mo had killed too many people of Netherworld Devil Sect. All the strong members from Corpse Mountain, a branch Sect of Corpse Hall, had been killed by Su Mo.
