Even if he was a judge and needed to be impartial, Ye Mo shouldn’t have said it so arrogantly. But Zeng Zhengxia immediately realized that Ye Mo was doing it intentionally. He was provoking Xiang Mingwang to attack. Perhaps he intended to annihilate the Gourd Cave, like he did with the Wang family.
Zeng Zhengxia was shook because of these thoughts.
Feng Wu’s eyes glimmered but he immediately looked down, as though he hadn’t heard Ye Mo’s words.
Ye Mo sneered. Indeed, he did plan to kill Xiang Mingwang. If the Gourd Cave did anything, he wouldn’t mind annihilating the entire sect. Ye Mo wasn’t cocky enough to take on the entire hidden sects by himself, but he was sure that the Gourd Cave wouldn’t have many helpers on this. They had been too unruly.
Immediately, everyone looked at Ye Mo. No one had expected him to stand up and publicly slap Gourd Cave in the face.
The judge who was going to cut off the young man’s arm also stopped walking. He looked at Xiang Mingwang, as though he was waiting for his order.
The scene was silent. Even the fight in the other stage stopped. Many people there weren’t from the hidden sects, they were big bosses from all over the world. Many of them didn’t know Ye Mo, and they all wanted to see what sort of person had dared to do this to the Gourd Cave.
Although the judge wasn’t very just, everyone knew that justice was only established by power. The Gourd Cave’s disciples could accidentally kill other contestants, but other people weren’t allowed to hurt them.
Xiang Mingwang’s face was green, he suddenly stood up and said angrily, "Ye Mo, you’re a judge. It’s obviously not fair that pills were used in the fight, why are you stopping the judge?"
"Xiang Mingwang, I’m a judge. How come I don’t see a rule that says that pills must not be used? When you’re fighting a life-and-death battle with your enemy, are you going to restrict them from eating pills?" Ye Mo sneered.
That middle-aged man who was behind Xiang Mingwang said something to him and Xiang Mingwang sat down grumpily. The middle-aged man saluted with his fists and then said, "Brother Ye, I’m the External Affairs Elder of the Gourd Cave Yan Kai. It’s not right to use pills. Even the international competitions nowadays forbid the use of performance enhancing drugs. This little guy used one, so he did go against the rules."
Then, Yan Kai looked at Feng Wu, as though he was expecting him to say something, but Feng Wu didn’t seem to notice him and just kept staring at the paper in his hands.
Ye Mo said lazily, "That’s true, indeed. But they clearly stated that those drugs were forbidden. How come I don’t see that on the rules for this tournament? Secondly, there’s a system of heavyweight and lightweight in international fights. How come I see a black level middle stage against a yellow level tertiary stage young man? Thirdly, since when have judges been able to go on stage in international events and punish contestants?"
Although Ye Mo had said this, he was disappointed that Xiang Mingwang hadn’t charged at him, he didn’t have an excuse to kill that old fart. He couldn’t just go attack him first.
"Mmmm. I’m a judge. Am I not allowed to punish a rule-breaking contestant?" the judge said with a red face. He had lost all his face that day.
Ye Mo stood up and smiled, "Indeed, you’ve just reminded me. I’m the grand judge, I can deal with judges that go against the rules."
Seeing Ye Mo stand up, Feng Wu immediately knew things weren’t good. He stopped the Gourd Cave judge and said at once, "Ye Mo is a grand judge, and you’re a judge, go back. Please, let this go on my account, Brother Ye."
That elder knew what Ye Mo meant, Feng Wu had saved his life. He quickly ran away.
Ye Mo sneered. "This time on account of Sect Leader Feng, I’ll let you go. You won’t have this opportunity next time."
Feng Wu knew that if Ye Mo hurt the Gourd Cave Elder, then it would become a real feud. There was no benefit for him if they fought now.
"Okay, let’s continue the tournament now. Everyone, please don’t deal heavy blows and have mercy when possible,"Feng Wu said.
Seeing that Feng Wu wasn’t helping him, Xiang Mingwang was even unhappier. The reason he hadn’t stood up to fight Ye Mo was because he knew Wang Lenchan’s power. Wang Lenchan, even still with the power he had, had been silently removed by Ye Mo, together with the entire Wang family group.
Xiang Mingwan believed he was a little stronger than Wang Lenchan, but he didn’t think he could kill Wang Lenchan silently without getting hurt at all. He hadn’t come by himself that time, there were five core disciples there. They were the future of the Gourd Cave. One was even a genius amongst genius, if they were all killed by Ye Mo, that mad man, he would be the sinner of Gourd Cave.
He agreed to Yan Kai’s words. Ye Mo needed to be killed, but not now.
"Martial Brother, we’ll let that Ye Mo be cocky for now. There’s still another round in the afternoon. I can let Lu Ran face Han Yan. With his power, he will kill Han Yan before she can react. This is a tournament, even if Han Yan is killed, Ye Mo can’t do anything about it," Yan Kai said.
Xiang Mingwang nodded, "Okay, we’ll kill Han Yan first in the afternoon. As for Ye Mo himself-"
Yan Kai said ghastly, "Don’t worry about Ye Mo, we’ll talk when we get back. I have a way to make him die and get all of his fortune."
Everybody at the scene was shook. Ye Mo had dared to come out and provoke the Gourd Cave, but what made everyone even more shocked was that Xiang Mingwang had actually done nothing about it. Who was that Ye Mo? Everyone was trying to find out.
Han Yan also looked at Ye Mo in disbelief. She knew that Ye Mo was capable and could even become friends with someone like Zeng Zhengxia, but she didn’t expect Ye Mo to be able to slap the Gourd Cave in the face without them doing anything back.
In a corner, a cold woman gave Ye Mo a deadly stare but sighed, "He’s too strong and I’m still risking my life for a black rising pill. I really don’t know why I need to get revenge for the Song family. Is it just because my surname is Song? Why do I have to do all of this when there are so many other people who escaped?"
