Chapter 1216: I’ve never seen anyone as stupid as you
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo heard Grand Master Huoyuan’s words and saw him frown. He was also astonished.
He wondered anxiously if Grand Master Huoyuan would be offended if he did not stay and practice craftsmanship with him.
However, he really could not stay. He must pursue the ultimate in martial arts and improve his cultivation as quickly as possible.
Learning craftsmanship would take up a lot of his time.
Although he had practiced craftsmanship before, he did not spend much time on it. However, as the level of the crafted weapons rose, it would be more and more difficult to master craftsmanship, He would have to expend more time as a result.
Therefore, even though he would offend Grand Master Huoyuan, he would have to reject him.
“Sir, I’m not willing to stay here and practice craftsmanship!” Su Mo spoke in a deep, steady voice. He said this quite unashamedly. He had reasons to reject.
Grand Master Huoyuan could not be angry with him just because he had rejected this offer! He could not be so petty. It did not befit his status as a superior.
Su Mo’s remark made both Grand Master Huoyuan and the woman in white start a little.
Grand Master Huoyuan looked surprised because he could not imagine someone rejecting his offer to be taught craftsmanship.
Although he did not say he would take Su Mo as a disciple, to let him stay on would mean that he would instruct him in the art.
Yet Su Mo had rejected him.
The woman in white was even more startled. He had unbelievably rejected the offer!
She was at a loss for words. Grand Master Huoyuan was her teacher and the highest authority in craftsmanship within Star Guzhou. Even within the entire Ancientspirit Galaxy, he was one of its top craftsmen.
Within the Ancientspirit Galaxy, so many craftsmen had wanted to practice under Grand Master Huoyuan and to master his art.
However, Grand Master Huoyuan did not accept disciples. He would merely give pointers to more gifted students within the Shenwu Academy.
Yet, even so, many young craftsmen would join the Academy to be so guided.
However, fewer than one in a thousand could receive guidance from Grand Master Huoyuan. He very rarely gave instructions.
It would be safe to say that Grand Master Huoyuan would find himself mobbed by countless willing craftsmen had he said the word.
Yet now, even though he had personally asked Su Mo to stay to practice the art, Su Mo had rejected!
The woman in white was speechless. Even as a teacher of the outer mansion and as one of his unofficial disciples, she had received hardly any guidance from Grand Master Huoyuan.
She really could not understand–was this Su Mo just silly, or an idiot?
How could he have rejected something so wonderful in such a decisive tone?
Grand Master Huoyuan frowned deeply and after some time, spoke quietly. “Since you are not willing to learn craftsmanship from me, why have you come?”
“I would like to join the Shenwu Academy as a disciple!” Su Mo said calmly.
Grand Master Huoyuan turned silent. He valued Su Mo’s talents and could clearly feel his gift in willpower exceeded many of his realm–and not by just a few times! He was a prodigy in pill-refining and craftsmanship.
He had originally wanted to make Su Mo stay and guide him for a period.
If Su Mo could really meet his requirements, he would even take him as his personal disciple and teach him everything about the art.
However, what made him upset was the fact that this genius had preferred to be an ordinary disciple of the Academy, not his disciple!
He could only smile wryly in his heart.
Did this boy not know how precious these opportunities come by?
Since Su Mo had expressed his unwillingness, Grand Master Huoyuan obviously could not force him to be his disciple, given his stature as a craftsman in the Saint class.
With a sigh, Grand Master Huoyuan waved his hand. “Mu Li, send him away!”
“Yes, Teacher!” The woman in white nodded.
Su Mo saw this and immediately felt an acute anxiety. Grand Master Huoyuan had not yet agreed to accept him as a student of the Academy!
“Sir, can I be a disciple of the Shenwu Academy?” Su Mo asked anxiously. He was perturbed.
“Yes. Go to the outer mansion. Mu Li will make arrangements for you!” Saint Huoyuan raised his head after a short silence. He was willing to give Su Mo another chance. Perhaps he would come round after a few days.
After he spoke, Saint Huoyuan shut his eyes again.
“Thank you, Sir!” Su Mo was overjoyed by his words. He immediately thanked him with a cupped fist in a hand.
As long as he could stay in the Academy! In the Shenwu Academy, he would receive better martial arts techniques and cultivation skills, as well as better nurturing.
“Let’s go!” The woman in white beckoned Su Mo and strode out of the hall.
Su Mo followed behind her, leaving the palace hall. Then, they soared away from the mountain peak.
Very soon, they returned to the land under the starry sky.
Su Mo was stunned by the inner mansion earlier on. He had not noticed its entrance. Now, he realized there was a gigantic vortex in the void here.
Mu Li kept moving and soon soared into the vortex. Su Mo followed after her.
In the outside world, a bright light flashed before the white jade gate. Mu Li and Su Mo soon re-appeared.
Mu Li did not speak and continued flying. She soared far away with great speed. Su Mo followed behind.
Soon, she reached the buildings in the outer mansion. They included pavilions, palaces, and courtyards.
“These buildings are currently uninhabited. Choose any one as your residence. Or you can build one yourself!” Mu Li told him indifferently.
“Alright.” Su Mo nodded and instantly understood why these buildings were in such a chaotic mess. So an outer mansion disciple could just build one any way he liked.
Mu Li spoke again, “I will bring you your identification badge tomorrow.” After these words, she turned and prepared to go.
“Wait a moment!” Su Mo shouted suddenly to her.
“What’s the matter?” Mu Li turned around and asked. Her face was totally expressionless.
“Thank you very much!” He saluted her sincerely with a cupped fist in his hand. She was making arrangements for him, so he must naturally express his gratitude.
Mu Li heard him and gave a slight start. She kept quiet and then said nonchanlantly, “I’ve never seen anyone as stupid as you!”
With these words, her figure flashed and she sped away like a streak of white light.
Su Mo was stupefied. His face was full of astonishment as he watched her vanishing figure.
Was he stupid?
In what ways were he stupid?
This woman was crazy!
Su Mo could not express his grievance. He soon shook his head and thought about it no more. He would start choosing a house.
Since there were already ready-made residences here, he would not expend his energy to build another.
Very soon, he had selected an exquisite three-story tower as his future residence.
The low-rise tower was not too small. There was a hall on the ground floor and several rooms on the second. It was large enough for him.
It must have been uninhabited for a long time. Dust had gathered everywhere. Su Mo gave a place a casual clean-up and then occupied the tower.
