Chapter 1162: Time Flies
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Elder Qi entered the Netherworld Devil Sect in his youth and had stayed until he became a protector of the Shady Hall.
He was responsible for the resources of the Shady Hall. He collected the resources from each stronghold, took them into account, then sent them to the Netherworld Devil Sect.
Thus, most of Elder Qi’s time was not spent in the Devil Abyss.
When the powerful members of the Netherworld Devil Sect withdrew, he was not with them and so was unable to escape with them.
Everyone who was outside of the Sect had been abandoned and were unable to contact the senior leaders of the Netherworld Devil Sect. Naturally, he was also unable to contact them.
Thus, Elder Qi also did not know where the senior leaders of the Netherworld Devil Sect were.
Checking through his memories, Su Mo felt very impatient but he did find some other information inside Elder Qi’s memories.
It was about Wu Shan, or more accurately, about Li Feng.
Li Feng had not died and his spirit had been sealed inside his body. As long as Wu Shan’s spirit was destroyed, Li Feng would be able to regain control of his body.
Elder Qi had heard Huangfu Qing talk about this, so it would not be wrong!
For Su Mo, it was truly very important. If Li Feng could be brought back to life, it would be superb.
However, if Wu Shan reached the Martial Emperor Realm and formed a Fighting Soul, Li Feng would definitely be dead!
In Elder Qi’s memories, there was a lot of information about Huangfu Qing, because he was Huangfu Qing’s trusted confidant.
For example, Huangfu Qing cultivated Archean Dragonesque Elephant Skill; Huangfu Qing had once obtained Su Mo’s Spiritual Sword and had discovered the formula of the Spiritual Sword by using a special spiritual liquid, and other such things.
In less than one hour, Su Mo checked through Elder Qi’s memories.
When he released his hand, Elder Qi immediately collapsed to the floor with his eyes rolled back.
A blankness flashed through Su Mo’s eyes and it took three breaths for his eyes to recover their calm.
“This Soul-searching Skill cannot be used too much!” Su Mo muttered to himself in a low voice. He had consecutively searched Qu Tan and Elder Qi’s spirits and had found too many memories, resulting in him almost losing his sense of self.
These two people, one had lived for three hundred years and the other had lived for two hundred years, so their memories were very vast.
A massive torrent of pictures surged into Su Mo’s mind and it almost submerged his own memories.
Just then, for two breaths, he had thought that those two people’s memories were his memories.
This was very dangerous. If the two people’s memories took the main position, he would completely lose himself.
Taking a deep breath, Su Mo shook his head and completely tossed the two people’s memories out of his mind.
He turned his head to look at Qu Tan. At this moment, his face was deathly pale and his eyes were blank. Even though an hour had gone by, he still had not recovered his wits.
Su Mo had just cultivated the Soul-seeking Skill and he was not very skilled. He had turned their memories upside down, so it would probably take at least a few months for them to recover.
As for Elder Qi, it was even worse. His eyes rolled back, white spit formed at his mouth, and his entire body was shaking. Even if he did not die, he would probably never recover completely.
A muffled explosion suddenly rang out. Su Mo grabbed Qu Tan and in an instant, the blank-faced Qu Tan’s entire body had been squeezed until it exploded. Nothing remained.
As for Elder Qi, Su Mo had agreed not to kill him so naturally, he would not do anything.
Afterward, he ordered an elder of the Firmament Palace to take him out and throw him to a forest dense with demonic beasts.
As for whether the blank-minded Elder Qi would survive in the mountain, that would depend on his fortune.
Having not found any clues about the senior leaders of the Netherworld Devil Sect, Su Mo immediately gave the order for the tens of thousands of powers in the Firmament World to check their own territories for any trace of the senior leaders of the Netherworld Devil Sect.
Su Mo could not help but feel helpless but there was nothing he could do. The investigation of the senior leaders of the Netherworld Demonic Sect could only be done slowly.
His most important task right now was to raise his own strength and the strength of the entire Firmament Palace to face the major calamity of the Trial Tester.
For a long time afterward, Su Mo’s figure faded from the vision of the powerful factions of Firmament World. He no longer left Firmament Palace.
However, he had become a legend in the Firmament World. He was being discussed by others at all times.
In the blink of an eye, two years had passed.
During these two years, the strength of Firmament Palace had risen by two or three levels. There were over three thousand elders at the Martial Royal Realm now.
The disciples had boomed to more than eight hundred thousand.
More importantly, Deputy Pavilion Leader Qian’s cultivation had improved greatly and had reached the level of Emperor-to-be.
During this time, Firmament Palace opened its doors thrice to accept disciples and take in powerful warriors from all over.
Each time, hundreds of millions of people came. The Firmament Palace only picked the cream of the crop, one in a million.
It was worth mentioning that many on the List of Top 1,000 Talents from the East Continent entered the Firmament Palace and among them, there were many that Su Mo knew.
Wu Sheng, who had entered the Celestialspirit Sect with Su Mo back in the day had not fallen to the Cold-blood Hall. After many years, he had reached the Martial King Realm through his own efforts, traveled across Barbaric Mountains and came to the Firmament Palace.
After two years of development, the Firmament Palace was very powerful and its might was at its peak. It was like the sun at midday.
Because many powerful warriors and talents cultivated in the Firmament Palace or were awarded by the Firmament Palace, the other major powers of the Firmament World grew closer and closer to the Firmament Palace.
Although the Firmament Palace was nowhere as powerful as it had been during its peak in the ancient times, it had gone through a complete renaissance and recovered the position it had in ancient times.
At a mist-shrouded mountain peak, a plainly dressed youth stood errect like an immortal pine.
The youth was Su Mo.
Su Mo’s gaze was far and deep, which seemed to pierce through the layers of fog, reach across millions of miles to see to the ends of the earth.
Behind him stood nine figures, they were Sikong Yan, Long Teng, Yi Xiaoxiao, Cai Yun, and the other five masters of the nine palaces.
At this time, Zhan Luan had the highest cultivation of the nine, at the Lv 7 Martial Royal Realm.
The second was Long Teng at the Lv 6 Martial Royal Realm.
Then came Sikong Yan, Jiang Fengran, Xi’er, and Wenren Tiandu, at the Lv 5 Martial Royal Realm.
And behind them was Yi Xiaoxiao at the Lv 4 Martial Royal Realm.
The two with the lowest cultivation were Cai Yun and Qing Ya, one was at the Lv 1 Martial Royal Realm and the other was the Lv 8 Martial King Realm.
They gazed at Su Mo in front of them, each with a serious expression. Even now, none of them could see Su Mo’s level of cultivation clearly.
If they did not look with their eyes, they could not even sense that someone stood before them.
Su Mo had just come out of seclusion. Even his wife, Xi’er, did not know his present strength!
“Your cultivations are still not enough!” Su Mo sighed quietly, with a gentle voice.
The speed of the nine people’s increase in cultivation was far from what he had expected.
