Chapter 1098: A Quick End
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Firmament Palace was silent as everyone watched Hai Mingjiang.
Hai Mingjiang’s body shook with anger.
Hai Mingjiang quickly flew out of the hall with Deputy Pavilion Leader Qian in his arms.
“Pavilion Leader!” Su Mo saw this and immediately rushed after him.
Su Mo soon caught up with Hai Mingjiang at the water curtain formation. The formation was closed and no one could get out.
“Pavilion Leader, where are you going?” asked Su Mo.
“Palace Master Su, open this formation! The Netherworld Devil Sect destroyed my Sky-sea Pavilion and must pay for what they did!” said Hai Mingjiang.
Su Mo shook his head and sighed, “The Netherworld Devil Sect and Yin-yang Palace have teamed up and it is expected that the Beitangs and Yins will join them. You trying to take vengeance against them will do nothing as they are too strong for you alone.
Hai Mingjiang calmed down a little after hearing Su Mo’s words. Even if there was no Yin-yang Palace, Beitangs, and Yins in the mix, he wouldn’t stand a chance against the Netherworld Devil Sect.
He was being too angry and impulsive. After hearing Su Mo’s reminder, he couldn’t help but frown.
“Pavilion Leader, we must let Deputy Pavilion Leader Qian rest here and get better. After the wedding festivities are over, we will make our move against the Netherworld Devil Sect.” said Su Mo.
“Alright.” Hai Mingjiang nodded and agreed with Su Mo’s arrangement.
If he wanted to take revenge, he would have to rely on Su Mo and his Firmament Palace.
Su Mo and Hai Mingjiang went back to Firmament Palace and gave Deputy Pavilion Leader Qian over to Sky-sea Pavilion experts. Su Mo ordered his people to make accomodations for him.
Even though the excitement had died down, the mood of the wedding festivities had been ruined.
Everyone in the hall was solemn and thoughtful.
Hai Mingjiang wasn’t in a very good mood and returned to the accomodations that Su Mo has arranged for him.
Su Mo turned to look at Di Shi. The Sky-sea Pavilion was attacked by Netherworld Devil Sect. What about Emperor Xuan Palace?
Di Shi’s brow was furrowed and his face was filled with worry.
Upon seeing Su Mo looking at him, Di Shi spoke up. “Su Mo, I must go back immediately.”
Di Shi was unsure of how Emperor Xuan Palace fared and decided to return at once.
Truthfully, Di Shi was not that worried. Even if Emperor Xuan Palace was attacked by the Netherworld Devil Sect, it would not be as disastrous as the Sky-sea Pavilion.
Emperor Xuan Palace was separated into two different palaces. There was the Inner Palace and Outer Palace. The Inner Palace was a Small World and was protected by a powerful seal formation. The Netherworld Devil Sect wouldn’t be able to get through it in a short amount of time.
“Understood!” Su Mo nodded and didn’t stop Di Shi from leaving. It was very hard for him to be killed with or without Emperor Xuan Palace.
Su Mo opened the Water Curtain Formation and let Di Shi leave.
Because he wasn’t sure of the current situation of Emperor Xuan Palace, he wouldn’t let the 13th Elder and other experts of Emperor Xuan Palace come with him. They would be safer in Firmament Palace.
Di Shi was both powerful and fearless.
Su Mo wanted to go to Emperor Xuan Palace with Di Shi because he didn’t want to see Emperor Xuan Palace suffer, but he soon gave up on the idea.
He couldn’t just simply walk away from Firmament Palace. Even if he did leave, the journey wasn’t a short one and by the time he arrived, it would be too late to help Emperor Xuan Palace.
With the departure of Di Shi, the strong members of the other major forces all asked to leave one after another.
Currently, the Firmament World was going through a great many changes and people still weren’t sure about Firmament Palace.
The Netherworld Devil Sect had decided to show its fangs to the world. Almost everyone had a sense of urgency in their hearts and was worried about being targeted by the Netherworld Devil Sect.
With this in mind, Su Mo didn’t keep them and sent all the people from the other great powers away from Firmament Palace.
With the guests dispersed, the banquet was canceled and cleared under the arrangement of several puppets, and the whole of Firmament Palace returned to being calm
It wasn’t a grand wedding, so it was quickly ended!
Su Mo sat in the hall and meditated alone.
This first move by the Netherworld Devil Sect really caught him off guard.
The Sky-sea Pavilion could no longer stay in the outside world, or it would be completely destroyed by the Netherworld Devil Sect.
At this time, the nine puppets, Sikong Yan, Jiang Fengran, and others all came over.
Sikong Yan, Jiang Fengran, Cai Yun, and Wenren Tiandu had risen rapidly in cultivation.
Sikong Yan had reached Lv 8 Martial King Realm, Wenren Tiandu was at Lv 7 Martial King Realm, Jiang Fengran was at Lv 9 Martial King Realm, and Cai Yun was at Lv 6 Martial King Realm.
“Palace Master, the Netherworld Devil Sect must be destroyed sooner than we expected,” said Gold One.
“I know!” Su Mo nodded his head and continued, “The Netherworld Devil Sect has a great hatred of me and has something to do with the Trial Tester. They can’t be allowed to stay!”
“Destroying the Netherworld Devil Sect shouldn’t be difficult due to the strength of Palace Master plus we will have the aid of Emperor Xuan Palace and Sky-sea Pavilion,” said Stone One.
Su Mo shook his head when he heard this and sighed, “I’m not so sure. There are three strong Emperor-to-be experts in Netherworld Devil Sect, plus they have the help of Yin-yang Palace, Beitangs, and Yins. It will not be easy to destroy them.” Su Mo nodded heavily and continued, “As long as I break through to Lv 4 Martial Royal Realm, it will be easier to destroy them!”
If he broke through to Lv 4 Martial Royal Realm, it should be easy enough to defeat the strong Emperor-to-be experts, and then destroying the Netherworld Devil Sect would be easy enough.
“Three Emperor-to-be experts?” The crowd was shocked.
“Dear friends, rest assured! I have decided on what to do!” said Su Mo.
“Su Mo, can I be of service?” asked Sikong Yan. He had been in seclusion, but he was aware of what Firmament Palace now faced.
“Yes!” Su Mo nodded. “Are you up for it?”
Sikong Yan’s eye lit up upon hearing this. “Su Mo, you are quick to worry as I haven’t been active in a long time. Know that if you send me to kill, I won’t let you down!”
Sikong Yan was already normally full of confidence, but the rapid increase in his cultivation had his confidence nearly bursting at the seams.
He had trained an Upper Imperial martial arts technique, and didn’t even know his own capabilities anymore. He was eager to see how far he had come.
“Your mission is…cultivation!” said Su Mo.
When Su Mo said this, Sikong Yan looked at him dully and everyone else looked at him. This was his so-called task?
“Your cultivation is too low and rate of cultivation is too slow! You need to reach the Martial Royal Realm as soon as possible!” said Su Mo.
“Yes!” the crowd nodded in agreement and Sikong Yan felt helpless inside. Su Mo disliked the cultivation speed of everyone.
“Sikong Yan, Wenren Tiandu, Jiang Fengran, and Cai Yun, you hurry back and get started on cultivating!”
Su Mo waved to Gold One and everyone else, “Everyone, proceed with the normal operations of Firmament Palace and nothing else!”
Su Mo left Firmament Palace after saying this and let everyone be.
