Chapter 1267: Arrival at Heavenly Underworld Star
At the Cloud Top Teleportation Hall, Su Mo, Han Ying, and Nie Qian used the Teleportation Formation to leave Star GuZhou.
The three of them then spent a period of time transferring from one star to the next.
With the ShenWu Academy’s identification badge, a good proportion of the Teleportation Formation Arrays were under the 13 superpowers control. Hence, their expenditure of Spiritual Crystals was little.
After a full 100 days, the three arrived at a star named Green Stone Star.
This was actually an abandoned star and, aside from heaps upon heaps of Green Stones, there was no trace of any Spiritual Qi in the barren place.
Green Stone Star was deserted, yet it was an important transfer point for interstellar teleportation.
Numerous Teleportation Formations each bound for different destinations had been erected in a vast valley of Green Stone Star.
This valley was bustling with activity. Numerous people commuted through the area and, aside from humans, various other races could be seen frequenting the valley.
“Brother Su, we have reached Green Stone Star. The next stop would be the Sorcerer Tribe’s Heavenly Underworld Star!” Han Ying happily exclaimed as the three walked out of the Teleportation Formation.
Not a moment later, Su Mo’s face contorted as he quickly changed his appearance into that of a young man with a refined, scholarly look.
At this transfer point, there were many members of the Sorcerer Tribe. Su Mo worried that he would be recognised, so he changed his appearance the moment he stepped out of the Teleportation Formation.
“Brother Su, what … ?” Han Ying and Nie Qian began, mystified at Su Mo’s actions.
Su Mo quickly surveyed his surroundings. After ensuring that no one was watching them, he faced the two and explained, “The Sorcerer Tribe and I have large grudges against each other. I cannot be recognised!”
“What?” Han Ying and Nie Qian were both surprised by his hushed declaration.
“Brother Su, there is animosity between you and the Sorcerer Tribe, yet you still dare to go to Heavenly Underworld Star. You are aware that it is the territory of the Sorcerer Tribe. Once you have been recognised, there is no way for you to escape!” Han Ying warned as Nie Qian nodded in agreement.
If Su Mo’s words are true, his companions realized, then this trip to Heavenly Underworld Star would be dangerous.
“I know. But my friend is held captive by the Sorcerer Tribe, I have to go and rescue her!” Su Mo sighed.
Nie Qian and Han Ying were silent. They understood that Su Mo’s expedition to Heavenly Underworld Star was also an opportunity for fighting experience.
Nonetheless, they found Su Mo’s willingness to tread dangerous waters for his friend to be very admirable.
“This trip to Heavenly Underworld Star may be very perilous. You two better go to another star for your expedition!” Su Mo cautioned upon seeing their silence.
“Brother Su, what are you saying? You are willing to risk yourself for your friend, we are willing to do the same, too!” Nie Qian proclaimed.
“That’s right! Brother Su, you are also our friend, we naturally will not let you go by yourself!” Han Ying agreed.
The both of them were completely sincere. Su Mo had spoken to them earnestly, and they would definitely not let Su Mo risk his life by himself.
He stared at the two and saw that they were firm in their decision and could not be persuaded otherwise. The trip would be dangerous, but as long as they were prepared and innovative, they could perhaps escape unscathed.
“It is my good fortune to have made friends with you two. Since you have both decided, lets go!” Su Mo proclaimed, nodding at the pair.
The three of them did not stay at Green Stone Star for long. After handing over the Spiritual Crystals, they stepped upon the Teleportation Formation directed towards Heavenly Underworld Star.
Since this was a Teleportation Formation transfer area, it was not under the control of the 13 superpowers and they were thus required to pay with Spiritual Crystals.
Shortly after, the Teleportation Formation Array started up and the three disappeared from Green Stone Star.
After a spell of dizziness, Su Mo regained his focus.
Surveying his surroundings, he found himself in an old town. It was dark outside with ominous clouds filling the sky.
The town was small and short walls surrounded him and his companions. Aside from the Teleportation Formation, there were no other buildings.
Quickly glancing around him, he noted that there were roughly four or five hundred other people who had arrived via the Teleportation Formation.
This whole town was built for the sole purpose of housing the Teleportation Formation.
The Teleportation Formations within the town continuously glimmered with light. Numerous martial artists were arriving and leaving this place.
He also noted that while some of these martial artists were average people, others were from the Sorcerer Tribe.
“Let’s go!” Su Mo called out to Nie Qian and Han Ying before heading towards the city gate.
Nie Qian and Han Ying quickly followed suit.
In an instant, the three of them were before the city gate.
There were dozens of Sorcerer Tribe members already gathered there, all of whom possessed strong auras. The lowest of them was already a Level 5 Martial Emperor and there were even a few who were in the Martial Honourable Realm.
They all bore the emblem of the Sorcerer Tribe, a trident, between their eyebrows. Hence, they were easily recognizable.
Su Mo was slightly alarmed by the scene and quickly tried to mask his own aura. As this was the Sorcerer Tribe’s territory, he had to be cautious.
“All foreign people will have to hand over 10 Spiritual Crystals, please queue to pay!” A middle aged Sorcerer Tribe member announced loudly.
Su Mo exhaled a sigh of relief. All he had to do was pay Spiritual Crystals, there was nothing to fear!
However, this Sorcerer Tribe was particularly greedy. On other Stars, to hand over 10 Spiritual Crystals per person was nothing short of robbery.
Su Mo did not approve of this, yet he remained silent. He could not afford to attract any one’s attention.
The three of them quickly queued to pay their Spiritual Crystals and subsequently walked out of the small, old town.
Outside of the town was a boundless wasteland full only of desolation.
“Brother Su, where should we go next?” Nie Qian asked.
“Black Gold City!” Su Mo lightly replied. Black Gold City was where he knew Wu Tianyu lived.
“Where is Black Gold City?” Han Ying asked.
“Not sure! Let’s leave this place first, before we worry about where Black Gold City is!”
Su Mo responded, shaking his head before picking himself up and flying into the distance.
Han Ying and Nie Qian closely followed behind Su Mo.
The three departed quickly and, two days later, arrived at a city named Wu Hua.
Su Mo planned to stay in this city for two days and acquire information about Heavenly Underworld Star and Black Gold City before making his decision.
Recklessly heading towards Black Gold City now would be too dangerous.
In Wu Hua City, there were countless members of the Sorcerer Tribe. Groups of them gathered together along the streets.
Of course, there were many regular people, too. For this reason, Su Mo was not overly worried.
Unfortunately, he could clearly sense that if these regular people were to turn against the Sorcerer Tribe men, they would be easily overwhelmed.
Many people in the crowded streets treated the Sorcerer Tribe men with respect, not daring to show any sign of scorn or anger.
Furthermore, there were many martial artists who followed the strong men from the Sorcerer Tribe.
“Brother Nie, Sister Han Ying, let us find an inn to settle down!” Su Mo suggested to his companions.
They had no knowledge of Heavenly Underworld Star, so an inn seemed to Su Mo the best place to get information.
“Ok!” Nie Qian and Han Ying agreed, both of them without any other ideas.
Quickly, the three found a large inn.
“Manager, room for three!” Su Mo requested of the man behind the counter.
The manager was a plump, pot-bellied, middle-aged member of the Sorcerer Tribe.
“Non-members of the Sorcerer Tribe can only stay in the middle or lower rooms!” He answered dryly, glancing at the three of them.
The rooms in the inn were separated into lower, middle, and upper rooms. The higher the grade, the more grand and luxurious the room.
Su Mo furrowed his brows upon hearing the manager’s words. He did not expect that regular people, such as himself, would have such a low status, to not even be allowed to live in upper grade rooms!
He composed himself. He did not really care about the difference in quality of the rooms, it was merely a place for him to stay.
Without hesitation, he replied, “Three middle rooms, then!”
Su Mo quickly handed over the Spiritual Crystals and the three settled down at the inn.
