Chapter 1272: Earth Pagoda
Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
Black Glow City was enormous. It was vast and wide, occupying an area of 89,000 miles.
Aside from Heavenly Underworld City, as well as its eight other surrounding cities, Black Glow City was definitely one of the largest cities Su Mo had ever seen in his life.
In front of the gates of the city stood dozens of Sorcerer Tribe guards, all of whom were Martial Honourable Realm Elites and even leaders of the Honourable Martial Elites.
Su Mo was not the least bit scared. He walked into Black Glow City as bold as brass.
He now inhabited the body of Wu Chen; his body aura was projected only as Wu Chen’s. As long the Fighting Soul was not urged, he believed that no one would be able to see through him.
Besides, Wu Chen was not of a high rank in the Sorcerer Tribe, nor was he familiar with a lot of people.
Without anyone stopping him, Su Mo walked straight into Black Glow City.
Inside there was not much difference between an ordinary Human Tribe City, there were even many shops and vendors.
There were also Human Tribes, though only a few, and they all appeared to be slaves.
The Sorcerer Tribe was just a collective term for the people. Among the Sorcerer Tribe there existed big and small families. Regardless of the size of the family, all members had to remain loyal to the clan elder.
Su Mo had learned that Wu Chen was not of high status in the Sorcerer Tribe, mainly because his parents died when he was young and he was not part of an important family.
Moreover, half a month ago, Chen’s only grandfather passed away on another Star.
As such, Wu Lie and Wu Yu’er plotted to kill him using unscrupulous means, knowing that he had no family to avenge him.
Wu Chen was alone in the world and nobody cared about him, which is what ultimately influenced Su Mo to choose his physical body for possession.
Su Mo walked briskly through Black Glow City. He soon came upon an ancient looking house and walked right through the front door.
This was the home of Wu Chen, who lived alone.
After entering the house, Su Mo sat in a side chamber, pondering the next move in his plan.
Wu Chen knew Wu Tianyu. Of course, they only knew of each other and were not closely affiliated.
Wu Tianyu had some background in the Tribe, as both of his parents were elders of their clan.
Of course, this position was very common, as there were tens of thousands of elders in the Sorcerer Tribe. Wu Tianyu’s identity certainly could not compare to those other refined tribesmen.
From Wu Chen’s memory, Su Mo knew where the family of Wu Tianyu resided. However, as a genius child of the Sorcerer Tribe, it would be rare for him to stay with his family.
He would have to carefully track Wu Tianyu’s whereabouts.
Moreover, once he found Wu Tianyu, he could not kill him outright. He had to be sure of the whereabouts of Hong Qing Xuan, if he was still in the hands of Wu Tianyu.
Su Mo also couldn’t kill Wu Tiayu out in the open. It would have to be carried out in secret, or else it would undoubtedly draw unwanted attention to himself..
“Su Mo, you are really bold. You dare to come into the base camp of the Sorcerer’s Tribe!”
The voice of Flaming Devil Ghost Sage thundered in Su Mo’s mind.
“Senior Ghost Sage, what happened to you?” Su Mo asked gently. This whole time Flaming Devil Ghost Sage had remained silent. If it wasn’t for Su Mo’s ability to feel the presence of Ghost Sage, he would have really thought the latter was dead.
“Nothing! I am merely thinking of your destiny path!” Flaming Devil Ghost Sage sighed.
“Destiny Path? What does that mean?” Su Mo did not understand at all.
“We can talk about this later. For now, you’re on your own!” Flaming Devil Ghost Sage said unhurriedly, his words full of inexplicable emotions. After his mystic declaration, he fell silent.
Su Mo furrowed his brows. Flaming Devil Ghost Sage was certainly odd, he really did not know what the former meant!
Shaking his head, he ignored the Ghost Sage and stood up. Taking large strides, he walked out of the house.
He wanted to investigate the whereabouts of Wu Tianyu.
After taking a short stroll around Black Glow City, Su Mo saw a relatively grand mansion. He was still quite far away, but he knew that this mansion was the residence of Wu Tianyu’s family.
Su Mo paced up and down on the sidewalk for a while. He then walked directly towards the mansion.
Doing an investigation through fear and intimidation would easily invite the attention of others, Su Mo reasoned. It would be better to ask for information directly.
Soon, Su Mo came to the front of the mansion.
Four Sorcerer Tribe guards stood before the gate. Their cultivation was not that high. Three of them had cultivation of the Martial Royal Realm and one was from Martial Emperor Realm.
“Hold it, who’s there?” the guard from Martial Emperor Realm immediately shouted upon seeing Su Mo striding towards them.
“May I ask if Brother Tianyu is home?” Su Mo asked with a smile as he cupped his fist in the guard’s hands.
“You are looking for Young Master?” asked the guard seriously.
“Young Master is at Earth Pagoda!” the guard responde dryly.
“Earth Pagoda?” Su Mo wondered aloud. He immediately inspected the memory of the Seeking Soul and instantly knew where Earth Pagoda was located.
“Thank you!” Su Mo smiled and turned to walk away.
Earth Pagoda was the valued cultivation place of Black Glow City. The pagoda had been around for a million years. It was connected to the underground channels of the Heavenly Underworld Star and it served as the Holy Cultivation Place for all young Sorcerer Tribesmen in Black Glow City.
“Looks like Wu Tianyu has finally reached Martial Emperor Realm!”
Su Mo said to himself, sneering as he recalled that not everyone could enter Earth Pagoda to cultivate. Only those of the Sorcerer Tribe aged 50 and below, and whose cultivation level reached Martial Emperor Realm, could enter Earth Pagoda.
This proved that Wu Tianyu’s current cultivation had indeed reached Martial Emperor Realm.
Without hesitation, Su Mo quickened his pace and strode off towards Earth Pagoda.
After a while, he came to the center of Black Glow City and, in the public square, he spotted Earth Pagoda.
It was only three feet tall and took up tens of thousands of square feet, like a huge Mongolian yurt.
This was because Earth Pagoda was built underground and only the tower stuck out of the earth.
The Pagoda had ten layers of space and the lower the layer, the cultivation results could be multiplied several times.
The gate of Earth Pagoda looked like a curtain of water, making it impossible to get a glimpse inside.
This water curtain was a tactical effort by troops of the Sorcerer Tribe. Those who did not reach Martial Emperor Realm cultivation or those above 50 years old were unable to enter.
At this moment, people bustled in front of the Earth Pagoda gate. Most of them were young Sorcerer Tribesmen who streamed in and out, making the whole place seem extremely lively and bustling with activity.
Su Mo did not hesitate and walked straight into the water curtain.
Instantly, the scene before his eyes changed and he was inside a dimly lit space.
The space was not large and its depth had not reached a ten thousand feet. The surroundings were filled with large numbers of cultivation rooms and all of them formed a huge circle when connected together.
In the middle was a huge Light Door that led to the next level.
Many young people of the Sorcerer Tribe had gone through the Light Door to enter the next level, however there were also many others who sat cross-legged in the center of the open space.
As there was a limited number of Cultivation Rooms, they must wait for others to come out before they could take their turns..
After reaching the Earth Pagoda, Su Mo immediately started searching the first, second, and third levels. Yet he couldn’t find Wu Tianyu.
He did not continue his search further, as he had to pay costly Spiritual Crystals in order to use the Cultivation Room in the Earth Pagoda.
If he continued further down, the price would be extremely costly. Additionally, Wu Tianyu’s cultivation would not be in the bottom few levels, but among the top three.
This put Su Mo in a difficult situation. He was certain that Wu Tianyu was in a cultivation room, however each level had over ten thousand Cultivation Rooms and each cultivation room was isolated from the tactical formation. It was impossible to look into all of them.
How was he going to find him?
At last, he realized that he had no choice but to wait. He sat cross-legged in the First Level space, waiting for Wu Tianyu to reveal himself.
