Chapter 1069: Who Is This?
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Jiang Fengran was totally stunned by his words. To make him one of them?
“Why did you choose me?” Jiang Fengran asked quietly. He was not close with Su Mo.
Bluntly speaking, they knew each other by sight and just got along well.
“As one of nine palaces, the Wind-cloud Palace masters wind martial arts techniques. You are a natural Wind Spiritual Build who can be the optimal descendant of this palace.”
Su Mo thought very highly of Jiang Fengran, because his talent was as outstanding as other experts ranked high on the List of 10,000 Talents.
However, Jiang Fengran had not yet fully grown up on account of his age.
His cultivation was constantly improving. He had long since reached the peak of the Lv 9 Martial King Realm and was not far from the the Martial Royal Realm.
“This…!” Hesitation was written all over his face. He believed Su Mo, but it was so sudden that he could not respond at once.
“Brother Jiang, you will have access to Upper Imperial martial arts techniques as long as you are willing to join Firmament Palace.” Su Mo professed solemnly.
“Upper Imperial martial arts techniques?” Jiang Fengran asked, giving a gasp of astonishment.
Normally, if Su Mo pledged to give him Upper Imperial martial arts techniques, he would certainly regard it as nonsense. However, under such circumstances, Jiang Feng did absolutely not doubt his words.
By right of the Firmament Palace’s inner power, having Upper Imperial martial arts techniques was by no means out of the ordinary.
Jiang Fengran furrowed his brows. He was really excited about Upper Imperial martial arts techniques.
Even Emperor-to-be experts would be attracted by Upper Imperial martial arts techniques, let alone himself!
Joining the Emperor Xuan Palace meant leaving the Xuan Sect.
However, he grew in the Xuan Sect and considered it his home, which vexed him.
Su Mo reflected for a while and said, “The Firmament Palace won’t ask anything of you, as long as you swear your loyalty to it. As for the Xuan Sect, you can still be its disciple!”
After a long silence, Jiang Fengran looked up at Sumo with a smile, saying, “I have no reason to refuse!”
“Ha ha! Great!” Su Mo exclaimed in great joy. Jiang Fengran’s participation meant gaining one more descendant for the nine palaces.
At this moment, Gold One and other puppets returned to the Firmament Palace after sending away the group.
“Senior Wind One, this is the descendant I chose for the Wind-cloud Palace!” Su Mo said to Wind One, who was the protector puppet of the Wind-cloud Palace.
“Wind Spiritual Build, good!” Wind One praised, nodding his head. He had already discovered Jiang Fengran’s build and had guessed Su Mo’s intention for asking Jiang Fengran to stay.
“Brother Jiang, this is the protector puppet of the Wind-cloud Palace!” Su Mo introduced, “He will bring you to accept the Great Legacy of the Wind-cloud Palace.”
“My honored senior Wind One and your predecessors!” Jiang Fengran saluted to Wind One and other puppets, clasping his fists.
“Ha ha! Don’t waste time, boy! Just follow me to the Wind-cloud Palace!” Wind One laughed. He seized Jiang Fengran and disappeared immediately.
“Ho ho!” Su Mo smiled helplessly at the sight of this.
After then, Su Mo, Gold One and other puppets chatted together and left the Firmament Palace for the Thick Earth Pavilion.
For him, improving strength remained his absolute priority. Only when he was strong enough could he do everything he wanted.
Still on the ninth floor of the Thick Earth Pavilion, Su Mo sat cross-legged and began to cultivate again.
It was relatively easy for him to bear the 25,600 times gravity.
He had planned to get on the ninth floor, but he gave up.
The ninth floor meant more than 50,000 times gravity. Even if he reached Lv 2 Martial Royal Realm, he was still worried that he would not be able to withstand it.
Six days had passed in the blink of an eye.
A sudden explosion, accompanied by the vibrations of the Thick Earth Pavilion, immediately awakened Su Mo on this day.
“What’s wrong?” Su Mo whispered and opened his eyes. He instantly rushed out of the Thick Earth Pavilion in a flash.
However, when he came out of the pavilion, the sound as well as vibrations had disappeared, leaving the Palace-protecting Formation undulating constantly.
In the distance, many disciples of the Firmament Palace were also startled. They skimmed out of their residences to check out what happened.
Stone One flew up to Su Mo.
“My Palace Master, someone attacked the Palace-protecting Formation just now!” Stone One reported in haste.
“Who is it?” Su Mo asked with a glint in his eyes. How dare this person attack the Palace-protecting Formation!
“I don’t know, but he only assaulted once and failed to break the formation.” Stone One shook his head and continued, “This man didn’t show up but attacked once from a distance, but the blow was so strong that it even violently fluctuated the large formation.”
“I see!” Su Mo nodded his head and replied.
Then, he flew up into the water curtain formation to keep a close watch on the situation outside the large formation.
This water curtain formation, named “Sky-river Formation”, was a mysterious super formation which shared traits of both attack and defense.
Of course, it could only launch internal attacks. In other words, this formation only struck when someone broke into the Firmament Palace.
Moreover, the Sky-river Formation also assembled other formations, such as the Void-shifting Formation.
The Sky-river Formation was incomparably powerful. Although Su Mo was unsure of its level, he knew for sure that nobody could break this formation.
He just wanted to check out who attacked this large formation.
Standing in the Sky-river Formation, Su Mo ran his Ghostly Magic Sight Martial Soul to glance around, but failed to see anyone.
Countless martial artists gathering outside the Firmament Palace had long since cleared away.
“Who would it be?” Su Mo doubted inwardly after he failed to find the man.
“Is it someone from the Netherworld Devil Sect?”
Su Mo’s first thoughts were of the Netherworld Devil Sect, for only they had a profound hatred of him. Therefore, they were likely to attack.
The Palace-protecting Formation was on all the time. If the Netherworld Devil Sect wanted to kill him, they would have to break through the formation.
So, it could be a probe of the Netherworld Devil Sect to figure out how strong defense of the Palace-protecting Formation was!
It might be an expert of other forces as well. After all, there must be a lot of people who coveted the treasures and legacies of the Firmament Palace.
However, it was unlikely.
“I’d better destroy the Netherworld Devil Sect as soon as possible!”
Violent killing desires burst from Su Mo’s eyes. He wanted to destroy the Netherworld Devil Sect just as badly as they wanted to kill him.
Now he could not wait any longer. He could be at ease once he exterminated the Netherworld Devil Sect.
If Hong Qingxuan was already dead, destroying the Netherworld Devil Sect was a kind of revenge. If she was safe, she would be rescued as soon as possible.
