Chapter 1181 Retreat!
An earth-shaking explosion sent Su Mo back. When Wu Tianyu realized what was happening in the distance, he turned nasty.
If the battle continued like this, the trial testers of his tribe would be killed off.
For him, he could subdue Su Mo at best, but he would not be able to defeat him in a short time.
“Retreat!” Wu Tianyu’s roar rippled through the air at the sight of his tribe members dying one after another.
Then, Wu Tianyu backed up a bit, and the other Sorcerer Tribe members rallied around him.
They were already frightened by the killing and intended to retreat. Wu Tianyu’s command only quickened their speed.
Wu Sen, who was hiding far away, immediately ran to Wu Tianyu without hesitation.
“You rubes! I will avenge my tribe members’ murder on you! “Wu Tianyu growled and fled in disgrace with other the other Sorcerer Tribe geniuses, as quick as they could.
Su Mo watched them flee, but he did not chase them, because Wu Tianyu was too strong and there was no point in running after them.
It was important to take time to consider things.
Su Mo sighed and swept his eyes around the Firmament Place. He found only 60 people left. The other 40 had been killed.
Fortunately, the people he cared about the most were just slightly wounded and had stayed alive.
With a flashing light, Qin Busi turned into a human form and came to Su Mo.
“Hi Buddy, your strength really surprised me!” said Qin Busi. He looked shocked.
He had thought that Su Mo was inferior to him, but it turned out to be the other way around.
“Are you okay?” Su Mo glanced at him and found his breathing heavy, with blood staining the corner of his mouth.
He had been badly wounded in the battle with Wu Tianyu.
“I am okay! Nobody can really kill me!” Qin Busi shook his head confidently.
Su Mo was speechless in surprise. He thought,”Is he really that powerful? Nobody can really kill him?”
“Oh.. buddy, the woman you just captured is not ordinary, is she?” Qin Busi asked. He wondered why Su Mo had caught only her when there were so many Sorcerer Tribe members. The woman must be of vital importance.
“I guess so. Even if she is not an important person, judging from her power, she must be a priority among other Sorcerer Tribesmen,” Su Mo said and nodded his head.
“That would be great!”
Qin Busi nodded in approval and added with a serious look, “Just in case, I also captured ten Trial Testers and put them in the Spacial Device.”
“Oh?” Su Mo was a little surprised. He did not expect Qin Busi to have a Spacial Device, too.
It was good to have Wu Xian and ten other Sorcerer Tribesmen in hand.
Afterwards, Su Mo scoured the entire battlefield and found more than 30 corpses of Sorcerer Tribe Trial Testers. He scavenged their divine elixirs and storage rings.
About 300 geniuses of the Sorcerer Tribe had been killed, and most of their corpses had been pulverized. Only 30 corpses remain intact.
“Su Mo, what are we going to do next?” Sikong Yan asked when everyone had gathered around Su Mo.
Su Mo replied after a moment of silence. “You may go back to my Divine Map Space and heal your wounds. Just leave it to me.”
Now, Su Mo had got what he wanted. His only regret was that he had failed to kill or capture Wu Tianyu and rescue Hong Qingxuan.
The others could not help with anything, so Su Mo let them enter the Divine Map for recovery.
They nodded because they were confident that, with Su Mo’s power, these trial testers could pose no threat to his life.
Su Mo stared firmly at the audience, took a deep breath, and said solemnly, “By the time you come out of the Divine Map, we will have already left the Firmament World.”
Su Mo’s voice was hard, and his eyes shone with confidence.
The audience listened and smiled as they got excited at the news. Everybody was rejoiced at the thought of leaving the Firmament World and exploring the world beyond.
Su Mo sent them into the Divine Map, leaving only the three wild monsters for company.
“Su Mo, why are you lying to them?” asked the bald man in a low voice. The passageway was guarded by Honorable members of the Sorcerer Tribe. Whether they could survive was unknown.
“I am not lying. I just wanted to give them hope.” Su Mo shook his head and sighed. Even though he did not know whether he could escape or not, he should still let them have hope.
He was under great strain because, if he failed, he, as well as millions of disciples, folks, friends, lovers, and masters of the Firmament Palace would all die.
What laid in store for him had an important bearing on the lives of millions of people. His pressure could certainly be redoubled.
He had even thought about leaving all of them here and escaping from the Firmament World alone.
At last, he gave up on the idea, partially because all of them wanted to leave, and partially because he did not want to leave them behind here.
Leaving them here may keep them alive, but they would all end up as a handful of earth.
“Su Mo, what are you going to do next? ” Qin Busi asked.
“I will go into seclusion for cultivation. I ask you to help me track down the geniuses of the Sorcerer Tribe.” Su Mo said in a low voice. He was trying to break through to the Ninth Level of the Martial Royal Realm with the help of the divine elixirs and storage rings he had obtained from the Sorcerer Tribe dead.
“Track them down?” Qin Busi raised his brows. “Su Mo, we have already reached our goals. Do we have to track them down?”
In the eyes of Qin Busi, they could hardly defeat Wu Tianyu, even if they managed to track him down. If they tried their best, they would just be able to kill more Trial Testers.
The bald man and the black-robed middle-aged man looked bewildered, too. Was Su Mo sure that he could break through his cultivation realm in seclusion?
“Predecessors, before the passageway is opened, we need to kill or take all the Trial Testers!” Su Mo said seriously. He would never let go of the Sorcerer Tribe members.
“Do you think you stand a good chance?” Qin Busi asked in disbelief. He had seen the depth of Wu Tianyu’s power.
“I am 90% sure that I will bring my cultivation to a higher level after this seclusion,” Su Mo said in earnest. The 30 divine elixirs and storage rings were necessary for him to break through to the Ninth Level of the Martial Royal Realm and the Imperial Level. They would be enough.
Qin Busi gave a start. Su Mo was no less strong than Wu Tianyu. If he could really reach the Ninth Level of the Martial Royal Realm, he would be capable of dealing with them all.
“All right, track them down. Just leave it to me.” Qin Busi nodded.
After a moment of deliberation, Qin Busi went to find the Sorcerer Tribe Trial Testers while Su Mo, the bald man, and the black-robed middle-aged man went back to Wild Sacred Mountain, waiting for news.
Su Mo was sure of Qin Busi’s strength and that he would not stumble into major risks.
Eventually, Qin Busi took his leave and Su Mo, the bald man and the black-robed middle-aged man made their way to Wild Sacred Mountain.
