Chapter 1353: Glory City
“Zhu Ying, are you forcing us to retaliate?” Ren Yundu shouted when he saw the killing intent in Zhu Ying’s eyes.
The Dark Force in the disciples of the Shenwu Academy surged the moment Ren Yundu ended his statement.
Zhu Ying kept quiet and he was thinking fast. He wanted to kill Su Mo and the rest but he was afraid that by doing so he would be stirring up trouble.
After all, these were the Eighth Prince’s men.
If he pressed a charge against them, he could kill them. However, if there was no charge pressed against them, the Eighth Prince would avenge them if he did it by force.
“Ren Yundu, are you trying to defy military orders?”
“Is there any problem if I defy military orders?”
Ren Yundu was arrogant and he shouted, “You can kill us if you have the guts, but don’t ever malign us!”
Having said that, he turned to look at the people and said, “Let’s go!”
Immediately, the people rose up to the sky and got ready to leave.
They fixed their gaze on Zhu Ying and were prepared to fight back in case he struck at them.
When Zhu Ying saw that the people were adamant about leaving, his face turned gloomy but he did not stop them.
Shortly after, the people rose high up and shot across the sky and disappeared.
Zhu Ying did not do anything and had allowed the people to leave.
“Commander, are we letting them off?” Deputy Commander Wang asked Zhu Ying, looking unhappy. However, they could not capture the people by force.
“What can we do? We cannot kill them if there are no charges pressed against them or the Eighth Prince will not let the matter rest!” Zhu Ying said when he saw that Su Mo and the rest had left.
Having said that, he sighed. His plan had failed and backfired and he had lost a Spiritual Stones Mine.
However, these people were the disciples of the Eighth Prince Faction’s Shenwu Academy. One day, they would join the Imperial Ancestor Court and there would be other opportunities to kill them.
After Su Mo and the rest had left the mine, they headed straight for the Saint Royal City without stopping.
After Ren Yundu was back to the Saint Royal City, he did not report to the Military Quarters but brought the people out of Red Millet Star.
The people were in a bad mood. They had not gained anything through this training and had been wronged. On top of that, they had lost more than 10 of their comrades.
Su Mo was the only exception. He was on cloud nine as he had obtained the entire Spiritual Stones Mine.
However, as he had secretly obtained the Mine, he nearly got the people into trouble and he felt bad about it.
One month later, the people returned to Star Guzhou.
However, Su Mo did not return to the Shenwu Academy but he left the group together with Xie Bin and headed for Xie Bin’s hometown.
“Brother Su, Glory City is my hometown and it is a renowned city in Star Guzhou. Every year, there will be an auction and it is a grand event!”
Xie Bin told Su Mo as they flew at a high speed in the sky.
Xie Bin wanted to go to the auction at Glory City and had invited Su Mo along as he wanted to foster a closer relationship with Su Mo.
After all, Su Mo had great talents and if he could be his good friend, it would do him good.
“What kind of treasures will be auctioned?” Su Mo asked with a smile. When he heard Xie Bin mention the auction, he immediately agreed to go with him.
Su Mo wanted to purchase an Honorable Five Elements Cultivation Skill. After all, the Five Elements Cultivation Sill that he had cultivated was an Imperial Cultivation Skill. If he could cultivate an Honorable Five Elements Cultivation Skill, his combat strength would be enhanced.
The only thing that he was unsure of was whether the Grand Chaos Five Element Skill could blend in with the Honorable Cultivation Skill.
Regardless of whether they could blend in, Su Mo was determined to get a copy of the Honorable Five Elements Cultivation Skill and give it a try.
If he could not merge them together, he would have to cultivate the Heaven Combining Ghost Skill.
“Basically, other than the Sage Class treasures, you can find all the other grades there!”
Xie Bin smiled and said proudly, “Brother Su, you have no idea that the auction at Glory City is set up by a few powerful Chambers of Commerce. The scale is huge and it is being rated highly in Star Guzhou. It is highly reputable!”
“That is great!” Su Mo nodded. There would be many treasures in such a large-scale auction and if Su Mo was unable to get a suitable cultivation skill, he might be able to get some other treasures.
“Hahaha! As long as you have Spiritual Stones and Spiritual Crystals, you can get any precious treasures at the auction!” Xie Bin said and laughed loudly.
The two of them chatted as they traveled. Star Guzhou was a huge place and they had to fly for nine days before they came to Glory City.
As to what Xie Bin had mentioned, Glory City was a magnificent city. It had a radius of about 16,000 kilometers with high city walls and it looked magnificent as it stood tall on the ground.
“Brother Su, the auction will start in two weeks’ time. Please come and stay with me for a few days!” Xie Bin said with a smile as they were walking on the bustling street of Glory City.
“I will have to trouble you for a few days then!” Su Mo replied. He had a good impression of Xie Bin and he found that Xie Bin had a bubbly and pleasant personality.
“Hahaha! Don’t say that! It is our honor that you are coming to stay with us!” Xie Bin said and laughed. He seemed to be in a good mood.
After some time, they came to the Xie’s mansion.
The Xie’s were a small family and their mansion was not big. It was located in the northern part of Glory City, occupying around 33 hectares of land.
“Young Master is back!”
The minute Xie Bin and Su Mo reached the mansion, the guards who were standing at the main gate quickly went up to them when they saw Xie Bin.
They then led the two of them into the Xie Mansion.
After they went into the Xie Mansion, Xie Bin introduced Su Mo to his father, Xie Feng.
Xie Feng was the master of the Xie’s and he did not have a high cultivation level. He was only at Rank 7 Martial Emperor Realm.
After Xie Feng had arranged a quiet and nice courtyard for Su Mo, Su Mo stayed with the Xie’s for the time being.
At the courtyard.
Su Mo sat cross-legged by the pond and looked at the lotus that was in the pond. As he smelled the fragrance of it, he felt fresh and calm.
“Blood Force Pupil Technique!”
Su Mo muttered and pondered on the skills of the Blood Pupil Clan.
After he had killed the men from the Blood Pupil Clan, he had devoured them, including their Blood Force.
The Blood Force of the Blood Pupil Clan had a unique physique. It was an inherited Blood Force which every member of the Blood Pupil Clan possessed.
In other words, this inherited Blood Force had been passed down from generation to generation.
After pondering for a while, Su Mo triggered his thoughts and merged the inherited Blood Force into his body.
The Blood Qi in his body immediately shot up and started to boil.
He then felt a vast Blood Force flowing against the flow of his blood and it surged crazily into his pupils.
In an instant, Su Mo’s eyes became red like blood. The redness was several times darker than that of the people from the Blood Pupil Clan.
Su Mo had swallowed too much Blood Force from the men of the Blood Pupil Clan which came to about 100, and the power was mighty!
