Chapter 944: Surprised the World With One Victory
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
“Su Mo, are you ready to surrender, or do you want me to strike?”
The three experts of the Netherworld Devil Sect were confident. Given their strengths, it would not be a problem for them to capture Su Mo.
They were ordered by Wu Shan to wait for Su Mo outside the Emperor Xuan Palace.
Since Wu Shan was not sure whether Su Mo would come to Netherworld Devil Sect to rescue Hong Qingxuan, he sent someone to wait outside Emperor Xuan Palace.
They had waited for nearly ten days before Su Mo finally left.
“Are you all idiots? Am I going to give in?” Su Mo sneered at them.
His mind ran rapidly as he secretly prepared himself. He had the Natal Spiritual Swords, so his chance for escape was still great.
“You asked for death!” The three Netherworld Devil Sect experts were furious upon hearing Su Mo. Their aura surging up and their body grew full of Dark Force.
Just then, the situation altered. A spear radiance shot down directly from the sky at an unparalleled speed, hitting one of the Netherworld Devil Sect experts instantly.
The spear radiance moved like a meteor that slid down from the sky. It dragged for thousands of miles and contained incomparable sharpness as if it could penetrate space.
“Who was that?” The Netherworld Devil Sect expert was frightened. The spear radiance had already arrived in front of him when he regained his wits.
The angry shout echoed through the sky. In an instant, the Netherworld Devil Sect expert reached out and a sharp claw radiance shot into the sky and collided harshly with the spear radiance.
However, the spear radiance was too sharp to be stopped by anything. It pierced through the claw radiance instantaneously and smashed on the Netherworld Devil Sect expert.
There was a loud explosion, and blood sprayed everywhere. The Lv4 Martial Royal Realm Netherworld Devil Sect expert was killed instantly, pulverized.
The other two Netherworld Devil Sect experts were astonished, as was Su Mo. Who was this formidable?
They turned to look to find that it was a middle-aged man walking towards them in the sky.
The man was tall and thin and wore a brown long robe and with a big silver spear in his hand.
The man presented felt like a long spear himself, and he was even sharper than the spear in his hand.
“Elder Qiao!” Xi’er cried upon seeing the middle-aged man. It was evident that she knew him.
“Holy Maiden! Rest assured that no one can hurt you as long as I am here.” The voice of the middle-aged man was like rolling thunder that shook the fields.
The other two Netherworld Devil Sect experts immediately turned to flee immediately. They tore through the sky and disappeared without a trace.
The two men had also seen the strength of the elder and decisively chose to escape.
The tall, thin, middle-aged man did not follow them but stepped forward to approach Su Mo and Xi ‘er.
“Thank you for rescuing us, Elder.” Su Mo immediately thanked the middle-aged man, whom he knew must be the elder of Emperor Xuan Palace.
“Don’t mention it. I was ordered by the sect master to protect you!” The middle-aged man shook his head and said.
Su Mo suddenly understood upon hearing that. No wonder the man arrived at such a timely moment, he had been secretly protecting them all this time.
However, Su Mo also understood that it was Xi’er the Elder was protecting.
“Brother Su Mo, this is Elder Qiao. He ranks 32nd among the elders in the Inner Palace. ” Xi’er introduced the elder to Su Mo.
“Greetings, Elder Qiao!” Su Mo immediately placed his fists together to salute him.
“Su Mo, you have upset the Netherworld Devil Sect, and you are in danger. If there is no important matter, let’s go back to Emperor Xuan Palace! ” Elder Qiao said in a deep voice.
Su Mo shook his head and said, “Elder Qiao, I still have something important to do, so I have to leave the Emperor Xuan Palace.”
Elder Qiao sighed and said, “In this case, I will not stop you, but I will secretly protect you two.”
“Holy Maiden, you two should all be careful!” Elder Qiao said before he rose up into the sky and suddenly disappeared.
Seeing Elder Qiao disappearing, Su Mo called out to Xi ‘er, and they set out again.
Su Mo’s heart was now slightly heavy. It seemed that he would have to be more careful in the future. The Netherworld Devil Sect might send more people to kill him.
Although they had Elder Qiao to protect them secretly, if the Netherworld Devil Sect sent people stronger than Elder Qiao, they would be in danger.
“Xi’er, what is the Elder Qiao’s cultivation level? ” Asked Su Mo.
Elder Qiao’s cultivation was too high that Su Mo couldn’t tell what his exact level was, so he wanted to know about it just so he could have a rough gauge.
“Elder Qiao is in Lv 6 Martial Royal Realm,” Xi’er responded.
Su Mo nodded in approval. Lv 6 Martial Royal Realm was already very strong.
The Netherworld Devil Sect probably would not send a Martial Royal Realm expert to hunt down him, a tiny Martial King Realm martial artist.
Then Su Mo and Xi ‘er did not chat further. He urged the Spiritual Sword to speed up, and they rode with the sword.
The Sky-sea Pavilion headquarters was located in Heaven-sea City, which was far away from the Emperor Xuan Palace.
Even if Su Mo rode, it took him eight days to get there.
He finally reached the Heaven-sea City eight days later.
As soon as Su Mo arrived at the Heaven-sea City, he went to the Sky-sea Pavilion Craftsmanship Hall along with Xi’er.
As usual, many craftsmen were busy in the Craftsmanship Hall. Su Mo headed directly to the residence of Deputy Hall Chief Hu.
A voice suddenly rang out when Su Mo walked to the second floor, and a small, middle-aged man strode up to Su Mo.
Su Mo turned to look and found it was actually Master Cui who had taken him to the Stove Auction Room when he first visited.
“Supervisor Su, you are back finally, I…no! Lil Cui has been waiting for you for a long time!” Master Cui came up to Su Mo and bowed respectfully to him, looking at Su Movery reverently.
“Yes, it’s been a long time!” Su Mo nodded slightly.
“Supervisor Su, while you were in the Emperor Xuan Palace, you really showed your mighty strength and beat up the Holy Son of Emperor Xuan Palace, Shangguan Hao. You are famous all over the world!” Master Cui said with excitement.
“Really?” Su Mo smiled. He did not care whether he was famous or not. And the greater his fame, the easier it was for trouble to find him.
What Su Mo didn’t know was that his victory against Shangguan Hao was actually more than a surprise to the world. It was rather a huge shock.
Shangguan Hao was the Holy Son of Emperor Xuan Palace and the fifth young talent on the Supreme Talent list.
Su Mo, who had only a Lv 3 Martial King Realm cultivation, had beaten the enemy who had a higher cultivation. How could this not shake the world?
If not because countless people had seen what happened that day, no one in the world would believe this.
At this point, more than half a month had passed since the battle.
In this time, what happened in Emperor Xuan Palace had already spread to the whole continent at an unparalleled speed.
Su Mo had indeed surprised the world with a single victory. And literally, everyone in this world had heard about him.
Someone even replaced Shangguan Hao with Su Mo and listed him as the fifth Supreme Talent on the List of 10,000 Talents.
The most prominent person among the younger generation in the Firmament World now was no other than Su Mo.
