In the loft of the Firmament Palace.
Su Mo sat on the main seat with Su Hong, Emperor Shi, Hai Mingjiang, the Dragon King of the East Sea, and Master Qian Fu Ge. The few higher echelons of the Firmament Palace were sitting on the two sides.
“Mo, you have scared us to death. There is a rumor going on saying that you are dead!” Su Hong said and he still had a fearful look on his face.
Not only outside the city but even in Tushan Town, everyone was saying that Su Mo was dead.
They were commenting on how the genius, Su Mo, who had been ranked number one on the True Sage Board, had had an outstanding performance at the True Sage Territory. He had defeated Wu Shang, the genius of the Sorcerer Tribe and the Sorcerer King. On top of that, he had defeated Ju Mo from the Great Spirit Clan. He was invincible amongst the martial artists who were at the Martial Emperor Realm.
However, Su Mo had not only killed Wu Shang and the Sorcerer King, he had also humiliated the Grand Priest of the Sorcerer Tribe. Ultimately, the most understanding genius of the generation had been killed by the Grand Priest.
Everywhere was filled with news about Su Mo.
The people from the Firmament Palace were at a loss as all the disciples thought that Su Mo had passed on and they had lost their pillar of strength.
Many of the disciples even wanted to head toward the Sorcerer Tribe to avenge Su Mo.
If an order had not been passed down to prohibit anyone from leaving the Firmament Palace, many disciples would have gone to fight the Sorcerer Tribe.
Su Mo had such an important place in the heart of all the disciples of the Firmament Palace thus no one could accept that he had been killed.
“That’s right! Su Mo, tell us what has happened!” Emperor Shi asked curiously.
“Palace Master, the Sorcerer Tribe is powerful. You have to be careful in the future!” Hai Mingjiang said, looking grim.
When Su Mo heard what they had said, he waved his hand and said with a smile, “Don’t worry. I am the one who tricked the Sorcerer Tribe into believing that I am dead. I will be safe now!”
“That’s great!” The people nodded. Indeed, Su Mo would be safe if it was so.
After Su Mo pondered for a while, he said, “Don’t leak the news that I am the Master of our Firmament Palace!”
“Palace Master, don’t worry. I have already passed down the command. All the disciples will keep quiet about it!” Hai Mingjiang said.
Su Mo nodded and then looked at Emperor Shi and said, “As a safety precaution, father-in-law, you will be the Palace Master from now on! This is to prevent the disciples from leaking the news!”
“This…is not a good arrangement.”
When Emperor Shi heard that, he was stunned and hesitated. He had no objection assuming the position of the Palace Master but Hai Mingjiang, the Dragon King of the East Sea, and Master Qian Fu Ge were as powerful as him. He was afraid that they would object to it.
“Do you agree?” Su Mo asked as he looked at the rest of them.
“We have no objection!” The few of them replied. Since Su Mo wanted Emperor Shi to be the Palace Master, they would agree to it.
Moreover, even though Su Mo was not the Palace Master, the entire Firmament Palace still regarded him as their Palace Master and nothing would change that fact.
“Great. Since all of you have no objection, my father-in-law will become the Master of Firmament Palace from now on!” Su Mo announced.
“Yes!” All of them responded.
Su Mo nodded. He then looked at them and said in a deep voice, “I have a task for you!”
“What is it? Palace Master, please pass down the command!” Hai Mingjiang said.
“I have two friends at Shenwu Academy who have been imprisoned by the Academy’s Law Enforcement Hall. They are Nie Qian and Han Ying. Please send some men there to find out their situation for me!” Su Mo said.
“Su Mo, unless one is an Inner Disciple of Shenwu Academy, it will not be easy for one to get in!” Emperor Shi said with a frown.
“You do not need to get in. Just get some men to linger around the city near Shenwu Academy. Once they see disciples from Shenwu Academy, they can try to get information from them!” Su Mo replied. He did not want to go near Shenwu Academy as he did not want to be discovered.
Although Su Mo had changed his look, those martial artists who were at the Martial Honored Realm would be able to recognize him if they had seen him before.
“All right. I will get it done right away!” Hai Mingjiang immediately stood up and wanted to go and make the arrangements.
“Elder Hai, please wait!”
Su Mo immediately stopped Hai Mingjiang and warned him, saying, “Please remember to tell everyone to be careful. They must not disclose anything about me!”
“All right!” Hai Mingjiang nodded and left immediately. Su Mo then chatted with the rest of them for a while to have a better understanding of the development of the Firmament Palace.
The Firmament Palace, the higher echelons, and all the disciples had made rapid progress. The cultivation level of everyone had been enhanced.
Emperor Shi and Master Qian Fu Ge had reached Rank 3 Martial Emperor Realm and even Su Hong had reached Rank 3 True Darkness Realm. One year ago, Su Hong was only at Rank 8 True Strong Realm. In just a year, he had shot up four ranks and crossed over the realm.
Su Hong was able to do so as he possessed two Martial Souls and one of them was a Fighting Soul.
There were many disciples whose cultivation level had reached the Martial King Realm and Martial Royal Realm and more than 30 of them had reached the Martial Emperor Realm.
The current Firmament Palace was many times more powerful than it was one year ago.
The only thing that bothered Su Mo was the lack of resources in the Firmament Palace.
The Spiritual Stone Mine that he had left behind previously had been used up.
There were about 1,000,000 people in the Firmament Palace and the Spiritual Stone Mine was unable to sustain it for long.
Most of the time, the disciples of the Firmament Palace spent their time cultivating, thus they did not earn many Spiritual Stones or Spiritual Crystals.
Fortunately, Liang Tong’s Weaponry Chamber was doing well. There were more than 800 craftsmen who were refining a large number of weapons on a daily basis.
The Firmament Palace had set up shops in several cities selling the weapons to get their revenue.
However, as the weapons were not of a high grade, the profit that they earned was limited. It was not enough to support the expenses of the Firmament Palace.
After Su Hong, Emperor Shi, and the rest had left, Su Mo sat alone in the loft.
Su Mo sighed and he felt helpless and tired. They still had to depend on him.
It would take a long while for the Firmament Palace to become stronger if he had let it develop by itself.
Su Mo felt the burden on his shoulders. He had to help the Firmament Palace grow, he had to look for Hong Qingxuan, and he had to save Qian Xunyue from the Gate of Reincarnation. He had to accomplish many things, thus he had to become more powerful in the shortest possible time.
None of these things could be delayed and he was unable to relax. This made him feel helpless.
Due to his character, he could not let go of any of these responsibilities!
His character determined his life!
He was destined to be tied down all his life!
He was tied down by the people around him and he was tied down by the things around him. He was unable to shake them off unless he became powerful!
If he could leave everything behind, he could have traveled around and pursued his own wishes. However, he was unable to do so.
“Split!” After a long while, light flashed across Su Mo’s eyes. He had thought of a solution.
