Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Firmament Palace, White Jade Square.
“Why is Su Mo still not here?”
“It’s getting late! ”
“Has it been delayed?”
The noise generated by the crowd with growing as they grew impatient. It was almost noon and Su Mo still had yet to show himself.
Su Mo, in a long red robe, finally came.
Su Mo moved extremely quickly and covered hundreds of kilometers in an instant.
“Thank you for coming to the wedding!” said Su Mo in a clear voice as he stood on the platform.
“The Palace Master is so polite!”
“It’s the Palace Master’s wedding. I naturally would not miss it!”
“Congratulations, Palace Master!”
Many people started to speak in polite tones.
Su Mo nodded and said, “You have all waited a long time and it is not too late. Let the wedding begin!”
Su Mo’s words immediately silenced the peaks, and even drop of a needle could be heard.
The sound of a harsh wind arose. Su Mo raised his head and saw the crowd separate quickly.
Xi’er wore a large red dress with a fluttering skirt that accentuated her delicate features. Her head was covered in a red headpiece and the dress sported realistic phoenix patterns.
Xi ‘er was not alone as she was being helped by Water One.
Soon enough, Water One and Xi’er joined Su Mo on the ritual platform.
“The bride and groom shall now ignite the sandalwood.” As Water One said this, he handed both Xier and Su Mo a pair of 3-foot long sandalwood.
The two of them lit the sandalwood and inserted it into the big tripod in front of them.
“Now bow for the ceremony and bow for the world!” said Water One.
Su Mo and Xi ‘er faced the big tripod and bowed.
“Bow to your elders!”
Su Mo and Xi’er turned and bowed toward Su Hong and Di Shi.
“Bow toward each other!”
Su Mo and Xi ‘er bowed toward each other.
They soon finished bowing and are now husband and wife.
“Now into the bridal chamber!”
Su Mo took Xi’er’s hand and flew away.
Su Mo took Xi’er and brought her to the palace where he lived.
The palace had been elaborately decorated and included a gorgeous bedroom.
It was equipped with a carved bed and high quality gauze curtains.
Su Mo patted Xi’er’s soft hands and kissed her forehead gently. After that, he lifted up her headpiece.
Xi’er’s beautiful face was suddenly exposed to Su Mo.
Xi’er was even more beautiful than usual. Her delicate face was lightly powdered with pink and black, and the powder itself was charming. Her eyebrows were arched like the curve of a mouth, and the two pools that were her eyes looked like clear springs.
Xi’er’s eyes contained such tenderness that it was if they could bring the world together.
Two pairs of eyes stared into each other as the two of them remained quiet.
After a short while, Su Mo moved forward and leaned his forehead against hers and gently kissed her.
“Xi’er, I’m going to greet the guest real fast and then I’ll be back,” said Su Mo in a light tone.
“Ok,” said Xi’er with a nod. Her face was beet red.
Su Mo immediately left and returned to White Jade Square.
At this point, the platforms had been taken down and the guests had begun to eat the feast that had been set out.
However, there were no dishes for this feast as it contained spirit fruit and spirit wine.
With the level that the guests were at, there was no need for specific dishes as spirit fruit was more suitable.
These people were experts, and even the lowest cultivation among them was at the True Darkness Realm. There were many Martial King Realm and Martial Royal Realm martial artists from the older generation.
Su Mo smiled as he approached group after group to participate in a toast and laughed with everyone.
White Jade Square was filled with many voices as everyone was talking in excitement.
Finally, Su Mo arrived at Firmament Palace.
Inside Firmament Place sat honored guests. Each of these guests was extremely powerful as they were at the top of Firmament World.
Among the guests were Di Shi, Hai Mingjiang, Sect Master Jiu Chubei of Xuan Sect, the Master of the Dugus, the hall master of Warlord Hall, and the owner of Burning Clouds Island of the South Sea. They were all Emperor-to-be experts.
The only person who is not in the realm of Emperor-to-be was Devour-sky Dragon King.
He was the future chieftain of the Flood-dragon tribe from the East Sea.
Although the cultivation of Devour-sky Dragon King was lower than everyone else’s, he was not any weaker than them.
It was well known that his strength was greater than the Martial Royal Realm and was very close to that of an Emperor-to-be expert.
“Thank you for waiting, everyone!” said Su Mo as he put this fists together to salute his guests.
“Haha, Su Mo has decided to join us!” said Hai Mingjiang.as he took the lead to greet Su Mo.
Su Mo immediately sat beside Hai Mingjiang.
“I am very grateful that you have all traveled thousands of miles to attend my wedding. As a way of expressing my thanks, I shall drink three cups!”
Su Mo took a look at everyone as he drank and noted that they were all drunk.
“The Palace Master is too kind!”
Everyone began to laugh as they were all at ease with each other.
At this moment, a middle-aged man with a short beard stood up and said to Su Mo, “Palace Master, Dugu Hon Hai, the old master of the Dugu family, has sinned a lot in the past, but I still hope that Palace Master will not care.” The new Master of the Dugus apologized to Su Mo and hoped to resolve any past hatreds between the two.
In the past, the Dugus tried to take the Billion Demonic Sword from Su Mo and the experience was not a pleasant one. Su Mo now was at the top of the world and the future was uncertain.
Therefore, Dugu Honghai hoped to resolve this past grudge.
“The Master of the Dugus is extremely polite and should know that I didn’t take it to heart,” said Su Mo. The others had no hatred for the Dugus.
After all, the Dugus didn’t really hurt him. Their only interaction was when Dugu Yanzhou was ready to chase him, but was blocked by Devour-sky Dragon King.
” Haha, the Palace Master is very forgiving. This old man will punish himself with three cups and we shall call it even!” said Dugu Hon Hai while laughing.
“Very well!” said Su Mo with a smile.
After that, Dugu Honhai downed three cups in order to end the grudge between the two sides.
Su Mo knew the Billion Demonic Sword had belonged to Dugu Shang, who might be an ancestor of the Dugu Clan. However, the sword was out drifting about in the wild and he happened to acquire it with his strength. The Dugus had no say in this.
The other party’s move was an apology to resolve the previous feud and an indication to Su Mo that the Dugus wouldn’t go against Su Mo.
“Palace Master, this is the first time we have met. I am the Hall Master of Warlord Hall, Zhan Kong!”
At this moment, another expert opened his mouth and saluted Su Mo with his fists. He looked to be about forty years old and was tall, stout, and had a rough face.
“Greetings!” Su Mo saluted the other party. He took a closer at the man and found that the other party’s face seemed familiar. If he had to guess, this elder was related to Zhan Luan.
It was almost as if Zhan Kong knew what Su Mo was thinking as he laughed and said, “Palace Master, your instincts serve you well. I am the father of Zhan Luan.
“So that’s why you look so familiar!” said Su Mo. This man was the father of Zhan Luan.
