Chapter 1214: A Fallen Satr
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo flew under the wide expanse of the sky. Below him was the open, boundless land.
He had already flown for five days. It would take him a few more days to reach the Shenwu Academy.
During this five-day period, he had soared past numerous majestic cities and many lofty mountains.
Every city had a population of over 100 million. They were all grand and imposing.
Not only that, he had also seen for himself how powerful the major Sects were. They were situated in the mountains where Spiritual Qi was full and rich.
He could feel the powerful aura emanating from these Sects from afar. He kept a distance from them.
His current strength was quite ordinary among fighters in the Ancientspirit Galaxy and Star Guzhou. He had to be extra careful.
Su Mo hurried on. After three days, he finally reached a vast, expansive wilderness.
“Almost there!” A smile appeared on Su Mo’s face. From what he had learned, the Shenwu Academy was located in this wilderness.
Su Mo continued to soar. After another four hours, his vision was blocked.
Before him loomed a gigantic 1,500-kilometer shadow. It was several hundred kilometers high. It covered the sun and most of the sky, almost overwhelming everything beneath it.
“What’s that?” Su Mo was very curious. He immediately slowed down.
Then, he lunged himself upward and saw what was before him at once.
The gigantic object in front of him was a giant sphere with a radius of 500 kilometers. It was entrenched deep in the earth.
“Is it… a meteorite?” Su Mo was quite startled by this large sphere. It emanated the amazing power of a star. It must be a small star, a fallen star!
He saw that the star was largely submerged in the earth. Its exposed part was like a magnificent mountain.
As Su Mo continued to fly, he saw numerous buildings–sculptured, jade edifices and palaces–on its surface. So numerous were they that they appeared like meandering structures tipping into the sky.
It was an extremely magnificent scene. Since the star was gigantic, its top half was already in the clouds. Looking over them, these meandering structures were like palaces erected for immortals in the clouds.
They were so majestic and magnificent–a spectacular sight amidst the clouds and mists. They glittered with scintillating light.
Su Mo could only gasp in wonder. Could this be the Shenwu Academy? How extraordinary it looked!
Soon, he soared into the meteorite. He had a panoramic view of the entire meteorite and its buildings.
The buildings merged to form a circular city with a radius of 2,000 kilometers. Its city walls were nearly 500 kilometers high. There were city gates in all four directions.
Su Mo could feel awesome auras from the city. They were like dazzling stars emitting light in every direction. Some auras were ten times more powerful than Wu Fan’s. They were astoundingly awesome.
Su Mo was in the south. He could clearly see the shining words “THE SHENWU ACADEMY” above the south gate.
“This is indeed the Shenwu Academy!” Su Mo’s eyes shone. This academy was even more extraordinary than he had imagined.
To build a martial arts school on a fallen star was quite an idea.
Now, Su Mo could feel some powerful sucking force from the bottom of the star.
Its suction was very strong–almost 10,000 times the weight of his body, pulling him down.
“It’s gravity!” Su Mo was astonished. Although the gravity did not affect him much, it was clearly from the original gravity of the meteorite.
A small star, yet with such a powerful force of gravity. It was over 10,000 times more powerful than the gravity of any other meteorite he had encountered.
Under its powerful gravity, the strength of a martial artist like him would be seriously compromised.
Su Mo did not stop. Dragged down by the force of gravity, he landed on the fallen star. He soared over in the direction of the south gate and landed in front of it.
The south gate was high. It had a width of several dozen meters and two large, golden doors. It looked remarkably imposing.
Two young martial artists were guarding the gate.
However, these two guards were not like other guardians, staring with a concentrated gaze. They sat cross-legged at its left and right, their eyes shut, looking like two statues.
Even after Su Mo had arrived, they did not open their eyes, completely ignoring him.
Su Mo was very surprised. He sized them up and realized they were around his age. Remarkably, both had reached the Martial Emperor Realm.
He thought secretly to himself… these two gifted men must be disciples of the Shenwu Academy!
At this moment, the south gate was still shut. Su Mo could not just fly into the city. So he walked over to the two young men instead.
“I am Su Mo. Greetings to the two seniors!” Su Mo came to their sides and saluted them with a cupped fist in a hand. He spoke extremely politely.
Yet neither responded at all. They did not even open their eyes.
Had their auras not been so strong, Su Mo would have thought they were dead.
Su Mo was helpless. However, he did not lose his temper. Instead, he pondered silently for a while before informing them, “I am here on the orders of a respected sir. He has sent me to look for Grand Master Huoyuan!”
Su Mo announced the name of Grand Master Huoyuan. He believed that they would not ignore him now.
After all, a Grand Master was no ordinary person. He must hold quite an elevated position in the Shenwu Academy.
Sure enough, after he said this, the two young men immediately opened their eyes.
One of the two, a young man with thin cheeks, sized Su Mo up. Then, he asked in a deep voice, “Who sent you here?”
“Master Zongchai from the Cangyun Sect!” Su Mo answered. He did not know his full title. This was all he said.
Steward Chai was an elder of the Cangyun Sect and a craftsman. They ought to know him.
“Master Chai?” The young man frowned. He did not know any Master Chai.
“Only disciples of the Shenwu Academy can enter its grounds. Anyone else is strictly forbidden to. Do you have a token with you? I’ll bring in a message for you.”
“I do!” Su Mo nodded and took out the jade slip which Steward Chai had given him. On it were the notes that Steward Chai had written.
Su Mo did not check this jade slip himself. He guessed, however, that it contained recommendations from Steward Chai to his teacher, Grand Master Huoyuan.
“Wait here!” The young man took over the jade slip and opened the gate. He strode into the Shenwu Academy.
After that, Su Mo waited quietly, eyeing the surroundings in the meantime.
This Shenwu Academy was not a simple institution. Its 300-meter high wall was cast out of some unknown metal. It gleamed icily, looking stately and impregnable.
The ground under his feet had not only the strong pull of gravity, but was also as hard as iron.
This fallen star was far from simple. No wonder an Academy would be built on it!
Su Mo did not wait too long. After a quarter of an hour, the young man who had brought in his message returned.
“Come with me!”
The young man shouted to Su Mo and led the way. He turned back and entered the mansion again.
Su Mo immediately followed behind him, walking with broad strides into the Shenwu Academy.
