In the Conference Hall.
Di Shi sat high above the main seat, looking at Su Mo. He said with a slight smile on his face, “Su Mo, if you are going to raise a proposal, you should come directly to me.”
Su Mo was stunned because he didn’t come to propose this time!
However, since Di Shi had told everyone that he was coming to propose, he could not deny it.
Su Mo knew clearly in his heart that Di Shi did this purposefully because even though he was not coming here to propose, he had to be after he said that.
“You are right!” Su Mo nodded his head.
“Then what did you bring?” Di Shi asked with a smile.
“Hmm…” Su Mo paused. It seemed that he had to propose today.
If he said he didn’t come to propose a marriage, he would probably be swept out. The point was if he did that, Xi’er would be hurt.
After a while, Su Mo waved his arm and three treasures appeared suddenly in front of him, floating in the air.
They were a jade slip, a long saber, and a shield.
Everyone fell silent when they saw the three treasures and their gazes were stuck with them.
Even Di Shi had opened wide his eyes, staring at the three treasures.
Because besides the jade slips, the long saber and the shield were both the Imperial Lower Divine Weapons.
Two Imperial Lower Divine Weapons! Even the Emperor Xuan Palace only had one.
“Palace Master, I don’t have many betrothal gifts, here are only an Imperial Lower cultivation skill, an Imperial Lower long saber, and an Imperial Lower defense shield!” Su Mo said loudly.
The betrothal gifts like such three Imperial treasures would be the most precious one in the Firmament and Continent.
Su Mo was not supposed to take them out, but he did it because he remembered the Emperor Xuan Palace helped him a lot in the Jade Cloud Lake.
The treasures were precious, so was the help.
“Good! You are so kind to do that. Thank you and I will take them.”
Di Shi laughed. He was not going to refuse them at all. He waved his hand to grip the three treasures and solemnly put them away.
Seeing this, the other elders all smiled. Even though they could not own these Imperial Divine Weapons, they would have a chance to cultivate the Imperial Lower cultivation skill.
Xi’er was very glad as well and her face turned flushed and beautiful.
Then Di Shi asked, “Su Mo, when are you going do the wedding?”
“The wedding?” Su Mo fell silent. He already had proposed and a wedding was inevitable.
However, before he answered it, Di Shi added, “June 6th is a nice day and it is perfect for a wedding. Let’s do it.”
Di Shi just made the decision autocratically and he did not allow anyone to refute him.
Su Mo was speechless. He thought in his mind, “Since you had already made your mind, why did you ask me about it?”
Di Shi acted like no one would marry Xi’er.
Fortunately, Su Mo was not against the marriage, but if it was something else, he would be pissed.
“That’s good! Two months later, June 6th!” Su Mo nodded. Sooner or later didn’t matter.
“Haha! That is great!”
Di Shi wore a happy face. Looking at Su Mo and his daughter, he felt he could not be more satisfied.
There was no person better than Su Mo being his son-in-law in Firmament and Continent.
At this moment, Di Shi could not help thinking of his disciple, Shangguan Hao, and sighed inside.
Shangguan Hao had been missing for a while and even he could not find him.
This disciple was very important for Di Shi. Although he had Su Mo, he would not want to lose the disciple.
Su Mo turned to Xi’er, who sat beside him and said, “Xi’er, we are getting married in two months!”
“Yes!” Xi’er heavy nodded. She didn’t lower her head shyly, instead, she looked at Su Mo with her gentle water-like eyes, happily and tenderly!
“Su Mo, let’s talk about the wedding thing.” Di Shi said.
Su Mo nodded and joined the discussion.
He had no big plan for the wedding and he wanted it as simple as possible.
However, Di Shi and the elders were on another page. They insisted on a big ceremony and inviting the whole world to the wedding.
According to Di Shi, Su Mo had been a famous expert in the Firmament World and he was also the master of the Firmament Palace, and the bride would be his daughter. How the wedding could be so simple?
Under this circumstance, Su Mo had to accept and prepare a big wedding.
“Su Mo, there is one more reason to have a huge wedding.” Di Shi said in a low voice.
Su Mo doubted, “Do you? What is it?”
Di Shi straightened his face. Looking at the outside of the palace, a bright light flashed in his eyes.
“The whole Firmament World, which looks calm, has been in danger for a long time and the wedding will be the beginning of everything.” Di Shi said.
“Please tell me more.” Su Mo didn’t understand what he was talking about.
“The Netherworld Devil Sect has been waiting and they want to unify the whole. They also get help. They are going to control the whole Firmament World.”
Di Shi added, looking at the sky, “The Emperor Xuan Palace and the Firmament Palace will make an ally after the wedding, and the Sky-sea Pavilion will join us.”
“So, after the wedding, there will be two camps: ours and the Netherworld Devil Sect.”
“We can know the attitude of other forces on the wedding and make them take sides!”
“This is why I pushed you and Xi’er to get married. Sooner rather than later.”
Di Shi explained his purpose.
Su Mo never saw that coming and he had to admit that Di Shi had a bigger picture than he did.
Indeed, he made the point. They could see everyone’s attitude through the wedding and make them take sides.
