“You may rise!”
Gu Tianyi looked indifferent and he waved his hand. Apparently, he was used to such a scene.
“Thank you, Your Highness!” The soldiers shouted and got up on their feet.
Gu Tianyi then walked into Saint Royal Palace, with Su Mo following behind him.
No one dared to stop Su Mo as Gu Tianyi led the way.
The two of them walked past several ancient jaded paths for some time until finally they came to a place known as Yi Palace.
“Brother Shangguan, this is my palace. You will be staying here with me!” Gu Tianyi told Su Mo.
“All right!” Su Mo nodded and followed Gu Tianyi into his palace.
Yi Palace was not so much a palace as it was a small mansion. It had a hall, loft, and a garden.
“Greetings, Your Highness!”
“Greetings, Your Highness!”
There were many maids and servants in Yi Palace and when they saw Gu Tianyi, they knelt down to greet him.
“You may rise!”
Gu Tianyu nodded and then turned to Su Mo and said, “Brother Shangguan, please stay at my residence while I go and meet my father!”
“Sure!” Su Mo said as he cupped his fist at Gu Tianyi. He had expected Gu Tianyi to bring him to the King but Gu Tianyi intended to go alone.
However, it did not matter to Su Mo as long as he could rescue Nie Qian and Han Ying.
Gu Tianyi then instructed a thin servant, saying, “Xiao Liu, this is Brother Shangguan. He is my honored guest. Bring him to the Emerald Residence.”
“Yes, Your Highness!”
Xiao Liu bowed to receive the instruction and with great respect, he said to Su Mo, “Sir, please follow me!”
Xiao Liu then led Su Mo deep into Yi Palace while Gu Tianyi left to meet the King.
As Su Mo was walking on a shady path, he noticed that there were many maids and servants. They came and went without stopping. In other palaces, there would be lots of eunuchs but there were only ordinary servants in this palace.
Soon, Su Mo came to the Emerald Residence. There was a large courtyard which was formed by a small palace and two lofts.
The courtyard was clean and beautiful and many unique plants and flowers were planted in it, filling the air with sweet fragrances.
A maid in a green shirt was watering the flowers.
“Sir, this is the Emerald Residence!” Xiao Liu said respectfully to Su Mo when they stepped into the Emerald Residence.
“This is quite a nice place!” Su Mo nodded. He was pleased with the residence.
Xiao Liu then turned his head and shouted at the maid who was watering the flowers and said, “Xiao Yan, come over now to greet Mr. Shangguan!”
When the maid in a green shirt heard him, she quickly ran over and bowed at Su Mo, saying, “Greetings, Mr. Shangguan, my name is Xiao Yan.”
“Please dispense with the formalities!”
Su Mo sized the maid up and waved his hand. The girl was pretty and she was about 18 years old. Her cultivation level was only at Rank 1 Spiritual Martial Realm.
“Mr. Shangguan, Xiao Yan is the maid who takes care of the Emerald Residence!”
Xiao Liu told Su Mo. He then shouted at Xiao Yan, saying, “Xiao Yan, Mr. Shangguan is our Highness’ honored guest. You must serve him well. You will get into trouble if he is not happy with you!”
“Yes. Please tell me what you need, sir!” When Xiao Yan heard what Xiao Liu had said, she shivered.
Xiao Liu nodded, looking pleased. He then turned to Su Mo and said, “Mr. Shangguan, I will make a move first!”
Su Mo waved his hand and Xiao Liu left the residence.
Su Mo then walked toward the palace in the Emerald Residence, but after taking a few steps, he came to a halt.
Xiao Yan was following closely behind him.
“You don’t have to follow me. Please go on and water the plants!” Su Mo said with a smile.
“Yes!” Xiao Yan immediately nodded and dared not disobey him. She quickly went back to water the plants.
When Su Mo saw that, he turned away and walked into the palace.
The palace was not big. There was a hall, a side room, a cultivation chamber and several other things. It was clean and well maintained.
Not bad! Su Mo was full of praises in his heart. Xiao Yan must be the one who had cleaned up the palace.
Su Mo then walked into the cultivation chamber as he wished to work on his cultivation. His cultivation level had reached Rank 8 Martial Emperor Realm and he was near to the Martial Honored Realm. He had to reach the Martial Honored Realm as soon as possible.
However, the moment he shut his eyes, he opened his eyes wide again, and light flashed across them.
Su Mo frowned. He suddenly sensed something strange. Myriad Worlds Mountain had given him a mission.
When Su Mo was at Myriad Worlds Mountain, he had left his Blood Essence on the Spiritual Soul Tablet and the Spiritual Soul Tablet could summon him at any time.
Su Mo had totally forgotten about this. Saint Zhen Xian had told him before that in three to 12 months, Myriad Worlds Mountain would assign a mission to him.
Su Mo was surprised that Myriad Worlds Mountain had assigned a mission to him through thoughts. He had thought that he would need to head toward Myriad Worlds Mountain to receive the assignment but that was not the case!
Su Mo immediately shut his eyes to sense the mission that Myriad Worlds Mountain had assigned to him.
“Get the Blood Pupil Clan’s treasure, Blood Wheelseye!”
Su Mo muttered and squinted his eyes. This was the task that had been assigned to him.
His face turned ghastly pale as he found that the task was too tough for him!
Although Su Mo had no idea what the Blood Wheelseye was, since it was the treasure of Blood Pupil’s Clan, it must be very precious. The ordinary people would not have it and it must be possessed by the Martial Sage Realm martial artists.
Blood Pupil Clan was a powerful force in Red Millet Star and the Martial Sage Realm martial artists had the ability to contend with the Imperial Ancestor Court!
Crap! How can I accomplish this mission! Su Mo’s face turned pale and he did not want to carry out the mission.
However, he had no idea what consequences he would face if he did not do it!
He had left his Blood Essence on the Spiritual Soul Tablet at Myriad Worlds Mountain and he was under its control.
Myriad Worlds Mountain was unique. The moment he entered it, he had been awarded with Divine Spiritual Liquid which had benefited him tremendously. If he accomplished the mission, Su Mo wondered what reward he would be getting.
Sigh! I shall take things one step at a time! Su Mo felt torn apart. He could only take things one step at a time. He had to replicate a powerful avatar soon or else he would be unable to handle the things that he had on hand.
Su Mo then pushed all his thoughts aside. There was no deadline for the mission, thus he had decided to get Nie Qian and Han Ying out of the Torture Room first!
After he had replicated his avatar, he could then let his avatar take over some of the tasks while he thought about whether he should stay or leave.
Su Mo brushed all the disturbing thoughts aside and started to work on his cultivation.
