Chapter 1035: Return to the Palace
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo’s shout reverberated throughout the Great Martial City and everyone from the Firmament Sect was startled by it.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!!
Countless disciples and elders from the Firmament Sect soared into the sky from their homes and looked at Su Mo curiously.
That was because Su Mo had told them a few days earlier that they would only leave in six months but he was telling them to leave immediately now.
Everyone was confused, not knowing what had happened.
“Sect Leader, what happened?”
“Mo’er, what happened?”
“Did something big happen?”
Yue Qun, Su Hong and the others clamored.
“Let’s talk about this later. Go and make preparations! We will leave in an hour!” Su Mo said solemnly.
Then, he landed in the Mansion’s garden.
Su Mo sat cross-legged and focused, trying his best to suppress the toxins in the Netherworld Poison Water.
At this point, the toxins in the Netherworld poison had already attacked Su Mo almost entirely.
Su Mo’s Dark Force surge forth, trying to block the encroachment of the toxin to no avail. When the Dark Force encountered the toxins, it turned a light green.
Su Mo could only try his best to discard these Dark Force and remove it from his body.
Fortunately, he had a strong body and his physical strength was stronger than his Dark Force against the poison. It would take some time for the toxin to destroy his physical body.
While Su Mo struggled to resist the poison, the Firmament Sect busied themselves, organizing things quickly and gathering all disciples.
However because the matter was urgent, while they could take away all the objects in the sect, there were many disciples who were not within the City but were in other parts of the Divine Martial Country. It would be hard for them to return any time soon.
About an hour later, the four Hall Chiefs, Su Hong, Qing Pingzi, Yue Qun and Liang Tong gathered before Su Mo.
“Sect Leader, everyone has gathered on the martial practice field. Can we set off?” Yue Qun asked softly.
“Is everyone there?” Su Mo opened his eyes.
The four looked grave. Moments later, Su Hong nodded and said, “Everyone is there and not a single one is missing!”
Actually, Su Hong had lied, there were still more than three hundred people who had not returned. These people were far away in other cities and it would still take a few hours before they could return.
However, Su Hong and the others knew that something big must have happened for Su Mo to leave so urgently.
Su Mo might continue waiting if they told him that there were still about 300 people who had not returned.
As such, so as not to waste time, Su Hong could only lie to Su Mo.
“Alright! Let’s set off! Su Mo stood up. His thoughts were completely occupied by how to neutralize the poison, so he did not question Su Hong’s words.
“Sect Leader, you have been poisoned!”
Liang Tong suddenly said. He discovered that Su Mo’s forehead had turned green, an obvious sign of being poisoned.
“Poisoned!” Su Hong and the others yelped in surprise, sizing Su Mo up, shocked and uncertain.
The three were shocked by what they saw. Su Mo’s forehead had not only turned green, his entire body was tinted green.
Furthermore, Su Mo was beginning to emit a pungent aura.
“There’s no need to worry. I will be able to neutralize this poison soon!” Su Mosaid easily as he did not want them to worry.
Then, he strode towards the martial practice field.
Su Hong and the others frowned when they saw that. Their instincts told them that the poison in Su Mo was not that simple.
Su Mo strode in the endless mists, stalking towards the Mist Mountains.
A long while later, Su Mo’s figure emerged from the mist and appeared in the outside world.
Su Mo stood outside the Mist Mountains and scanned his surroundings. There wasn’t anyone around him.
He closed his eyes and sensed for the two missing Natal Spiritual Sword.
There was a faint answer in Su Mo’s heart.
However, the sensation was very weak, which meant that the Natal Spiritual Swords were a great distance away from him.
Furthermore, the two swords were not in a single location. It was evident that they had been picked up by different people.
“Let’s return to the Firmament Palace first and get the Spiritual Sword another day!”
Su Mo sighed. He could not control the Spiritual Swords as they were too far away, so he could only wait and retrieve them later.
Then, Su Mo ascertained his location and flew rapidly towards the Heaven-sea City.
The entrance of the Firmament Palace was a short distance from the Heaven-sea City.
Su Mo rode on his sword. He did not dare to waste time, and pushed the Natal Spiritual Sword to its limits, making it move at its fastest speed.
Su Mo sat cross-legged on the Natal Spiritual Sword, trying his best to suppress the toxins in his body while directing the sword.
His entire waist, including the flesh and meridians, had all festered, flesh and blood falling off.
The bones at his waist had also started to rot.
The toxin has spread all over his body. Apart from his elixir field and consciousness ocean, Su Mo’s body was filled with the terrifying toxin and had turned a jade green.
The Netherworld Poison Water was extremely terrifying and was beyond Su Mo’s imagination. It would be difficult to save his life once his body rotted completely, even if his elixir field and consciousness ocean still existed.
Su Mo’s Dark Force was weak in resisting the toxin. He had managed to withstand it for so long due to his powerful physical strength.
If not for his incredibly powerful physical strength, which was highly resistant to the toxin, Su Mo would have died long ago.
Time passed. Every minute and every second felt extremely long to Su Mo.
Three days and three nights!
After flying for three days and three nights, Su Mo finally neared the Heaven-sea City. He was close to the entrance of the Firmament Palace.
Su Mo was very weak by then, his energy and powers were almost completely depleted.
His complexion was dark, thetoxins having spread throughout his body. He had almost lost control of his body because almost all of his body was rotten to a certain extent and his bones had begun to rot as well.
If the sword was controlled not by his mind and by his Dark Force instead, he would not have been able to return.
“Soon! Hang on a little more!”
Su Mo chanted in his heart. He was faced with a choice as he neared the entrance of the Firmament Palace.
The entrance of the Firmament Palace was a short distance from the Heaven-sea City, and the Heaven-sea City was the headquarters of the Sky-sea Pavilion.
As such, Su Mo had two choices. He could either return to the Firmament Palace or go to the Sky-sea Pavilion.
There were many experts in the Sky-sea Pavilion and also many Pill-refining Masters. It was highly likely that they could save his life.
But Su Mo only thought about it and then abandoned all thoughts of going to the Sky-sea Pavilion.
The Netherworld Poison Water was very strong, and even the Sky-sea Pavilion might not be able to save him.
There was hope only in the Firmament Palace. The palace was the strongest power in the past, and while it had been destroyed, the inner power it possessed could not be duplicated by anyone else.
Most importantly, the Firmament Palace housed the consciousness of an Earth Palace Master. While it was just his consciousness, the palace master was a powerful expert in ancient times and would definitely be able to help him.
Su Mo has great expectations for the Earth Palace’s Master.
His life depended on the Earth Palace Master!
Su Mo triggered the Natal Spiritual Sword without hesitation and flew towards the entrance of the Firmament Palace.
He arrived at the entrance shortly.
It was late into the night and there was no one around him. Su Mo used his Mind and the Holy Son token flew out, suspended before him.
After struggling for a long time, Su Mo finally managed to urge the Dark Force within a silver of the divine elixir into the Holy Son token.
In a flash, the Holy Son token glowed with a dazzling golden light.
Then, a large door of light slowly appeared. The entrance of the Firmament Palace opened.
Su Mo kept the token with a thought and a strong and cold murderous intent surged through his heart. If he did not die, the day he emerged from the palace would be the day he made the Netherworld Devil Sect pay for what they did to him.
Then, the sword radiance shimmered. Su Mo rode the sword through the door of light.
