Chapter 1189 Success or Failure Depends on I
“Li Feng!” Su Mo exclaimed in excitement. He had a smile on his face.
He finally woke up!
After a few years he finally saw him again.
Su Mo was filled with emotion. Li Feng was so ill-fated.
His cultivation had been drained and his body taken away. Words failed to describe how wretched he was.
Moreover, these things had something to do with Su Mo, making him feel guilty.
Li Feng woke up and opened his eyes. He was in a daze, not knowing what had happened.
“Su… Su Mo?” After some time, his mind became clear. Li Feng looked at Su Mo in bewilderment.
“Li Feng, you’ve finally woken up!” Su Mo smiled.
“Su Mo, what’s going on?” Li Feng glanced at the three other men standing nearby and then looked around. He was still unable to figure out why he was there.
Li Feng’s memory of these past years was blank. He only remembered that he had been captured by Huangfu Qing while fighting the Celestial Spirit Sect at the Cold-blood Hall.
Then, he had been brought to the Central Continent and someone had invaded his consciousness ocean. He had since lost his consciousness and everything had gone blank.
To his surprise, the first person he saw after waking was Su Mo.
“Li Feng, your body had been taken away, but it’s fine now.” Su Mo sighed.
“What happened, exactly?” Li Feng was still baffled.
Afterward, Su Mo told Li Feng in great detail what had happened over the years as well as their current situation.
Hearing this, Li Feng was speechless. Though Su Mo underplayed it, he could hardly skim over various dangers and hazards.
“Su Mo, let me go with you!” Li Feng earnestly said after a while. There was nothing in the Firmament World keeping him.
Su Mo was his only friend and he would definitely leave with him.
Moreover, his parents were now with the Sus in the Firmament Palace.
“Mmm!” Su Mo nodded his head and a moment later, he took Li Feng into the Divine Map.
Su Mo left the people in the Space Jade Bracelet alone and headed to the South Continent once more with his buddies.
Su Mo was not in the mood to kill the people in the Jade Bracelet. The next time he needed to devour resources, these people would be his target.
Su Mo and the others moved along very quickly, taking only three days to get to the South Continent.
They looked around and managed to locate the vast plain where the space passageway was set up.
Though they did not know the exact location of the space passageway, they were sure that it was on this plain. All they needed to do was wait patiently.
The bald man and the black-robed middle-aged man entered Qin Busi’s spatial device, leaving only Su Mo and Qin Busi.
If the two of them could escape, everyone else would survive as well.
On a low-lying hill, Su Mo and Qin Busi sat cross-legged with their eyes closed, in the middle of silent cultivation.
Su Mo’s cultivation was now at the peak of the Ninth level of the Martial Royal Realm and was not too far from the Martial Emperor Realm.
From the Martial Royal Realm to the Martial Emperor Realm, he needed to overcome two hurdles.
First, he needed to upgrade his divine elixirs to the Martial Emperor Level so that it would be purer and stronger with more profound Dark Force.
Second, he needed to refine his Martial Soul into a Fighting Soul.
He needed to clear these two hurdles before he could elevate his cultivation to the Martial Emperor Realm.
However, even if he only overcame one hurdle, he could still be an Emperor-to-be.
The current Emperors-to-be of the Firmament World had managed to break through the first hurdle but failed at the second one.
Refining the Martial Soul into Fighting Soul proved to be the most difficult.
At present, Su Mo was not concerned about upgrading his divine elixirs. With a solid foundation and ample resources, it could easily be done.
Refining his Martial Soul into Fighting Soul would prove to be the most challenging.
Su Mo knew that for his martial soul to become a fighting soul, he needed to combine his spiritual soul with his martial soul and the power of Ultimacy as well.
Difficult as it was, it was good that Su Mo had once gathered the seeds of the Fighting Soul—this improved his chances.
It would still take about a month before the trial test of the Sorcerer tribe ended and the passageway was reopened.
Time was pressing for Su Mo to either upgrade his divine elixirs or to evolve his martial soul into fighting soul.
All he could do was to refine his Dark Force and consolidate his foundation. Even minimal improvement was alright.
Time ticked away second by second, day by day. Soon, a month had passed.
One day, Su Mo and Qin Busi stopped cultivating.
“Buddy, the passageway is going to be reopened. Success or failure depends on this!” Qin Busi stared at Su Mo solemnly.
“You are right!” Su Mo nodded his head and felt stressed.
Qin Busi remained silent for a while and then brought out a feather on his palm.
The feather was grayish white, glimmering with a misty halo and giving off a mysterious aura.
“Take it.” Qin Busi handed the feather to Su Mo.
“Predecessor, this is…?” Su Mo was a little confused but still took it without saying anything else.
“This feather can bring me back to life. Even if I die, I can come back as long as you make it out of here.” Qin Busi said.
Su Mo gave a start and thought to himself, “This man is something. He can revive just through a feather.”
No wonder he could survive three calamities.
He must have had more than one feather and there must be other feathers like this in the Firmament World.
Even if they all died, he could still come back to life in the Firmament World.
The Immortal Bird was extraordinary indeed!
Su Mo nodded and then took the strange feather seriously.
In any case, he did not want Qin Busi to die. If they could both make their way out, it would be much better.
“Su Mo, thank you!” Qin Busi cupped his hands and expressed his gratitude.
Su Mo waved his hands and said, “Let’s just play it by ear!”
Qin Busi nodded and then spoke again after a pause. “Su Mo, you must be mentally prepared for one thing.”
“What is that?” Su Mo asked curiously.
“It is about the Honorables of the Sorcerer Tribe.”
Qin Busi said in a low and serious tone. “The power of a Martial Honorable Expert is beyond your imagination. Their pressing aura will stifle thoughts of resisting. It’s next to impossible to threaten the Honorables.”
Su Mo took a deep breath. He knew that Honorables were powerful enough to kill them before they could even threaten the Honorables.
After a moment of deliberation, they left a trace of Dark Force in the consciousness ocean of all of the hostages including Wu Xian.
The Dark Force embodied their Minds. It would remain stable and do no harm to the hostages as long as they were alive.
Once Su Mo and Qin Busi died, their Dark Force would explode immediately and ruin the consciousness ocean altogether.
After everything was set in order, Su Mo and Qin Busi stopped cultivating because the day was approaching when the passageway would be reopened.
Standing on the hill, Su Mo triggered the Martial Soul of Ghostly Magic Sight and found that several Sorcerer tribe geniuses had appeared in the far distance, obviously waiting for the passageway to be reopened.
