“Elder Feng, do you really want to know?” Su Mo smiled as he looked at Feng Guang, whose face was filled with curiosity.
“Of course!” Feng Guang glared with his small eyes, waiting for Su Mo to answer.
“Alright, I will tell you!”
Su Mo nodded and continued, “I am a friend… a very good friend of Elder Zhen Xian. Is that enough?”
“Friend?” Hearing this, Feng Guang’s fat cheeks puffed up. He did not believe Su Mo.
How could a Martial Emperor Realm Warrior become friends with a Martial Sage Realm elite?
They were of different levels. There simply was no point of comparison at all.
Immediately after, Feng Guang did not ask anything else. Since Su Mo was reluctant to tell him, it would not turn out well if he were to pursue the matter further.
In a short time, Feng Guang took Su Mo and came to the mountainside. THe building was continuous and filled with exquisite courtyards.
“Su Mo, you will live here in the future! I will first go and settle the problem of your identity after entering the sect!” Feng Guang said as he pointed to a courtyard in front of him.
“OK, I’m sorry to bother you Elder Feng!” Su Mo thanked Feng Guang.
“Don’t mention it! Don’t mention it! It’s nothing” Feng Guang smiled and waved his hands. He did not find it troublesome. As long as he was able to please Elder Zhen Xian, this small matter was nothing.
Immediately after, Feng Guang turned and left to clear up the matter of Su Mo’s identity.
Su Mo opened the door of the courtyard and walked in.
The courtyard was not big, it had about a thirty to forty feet radius and there were many rooms inside that were clean and tidy.
“What is this?” At the corner of the courtyard, Su Mo saw a Jade Stone on the ground that was engraved with complicated words. He could not help but feel puzzled.
“It’s an array!” Su Mo instantly recognised it as he walked closer. It was a small array but he was unsure what its specific use was.
Immediately after, he cast a few Lower Spiritual Crystals into the array. The array suddenly shot out a ray of light and then further rays of light spread out, forming an extremely thin Air Shield on the courtyard.
“Not bad!” Seeing this, a smile spread across Su Mo’s face. This Air Shield had a defensive and soundproofing effect.
Although the array was not very powerful, it did have its benefits.
It seemed that all Core Disciples of the courtyard had those kinds of arrays. After all, with that level of Cultivation, it was easy to cause a lot of commotion during Cultivation and affect others.
With that kind of array, the situation in the courtyard would not be audible to the outside. This was also a good thing for Su Mo.
There were stone tables and benches in the courtyard. Su Mo sat down and thought about his current situation.
Now, he had successfully become a Core Disciple of Path Sect and was one step closer towards the Sun Moon Tribe. As long as he become a True Disciple, there was a chance to go to the Sun Moon Tribe to Cultivate and meet Qing Xuan.
However, he was worried that he did not have enough strength to become a True Disciple, especially since his mental strength was greatly damaged and his strength had decreased tremendously.
It seemed that he would have to work harder to Cultivate from now on and strive to break through to Level 9 Martial Emperor Realm.
As long as he was able to break through Level 9 Martial Emperor Realm and defeat a True Disciple to replace him, there wouldn’t be a problem.
While Su Mo thought, Elder Feng Guang came back once again after a short while.
Su Mo immediately removed the array in the courtyard and welcomed Elder Feng Guang in.
“Su Mo, it has been settled. This is your identity card!” Elder Feng Guang said with a smile as he passed Su Mo a Jade Tablet.
“Thank you Elder Feng!” Su Mo kept the identity card and thanked the elder.
“Oh right, new Core Disciples of Path Sect have rewards. Although you have just joined Path Sect, you also will receive a reward!” said Elder Feng.
“What reward?” Su Mo asked casually. He did not care much about rewards.
“You can choose which reward you like. Although it may not be of much use to you, it will be better than nothing!” laughed Feng Guang.
In Path Sect, as long as one was promoted to Martial Emperor Realm, they would be able to become a Core Disciple. As such, rewards were of the lower level Martial Emperor Realm standard, and as such were not very effective for Su Mo.
“Alright, where can I get it?” Su Mo nodded and asked casually.
“Go to Sect Hall!” said Feng Guang. AFter which, he chatted with Su Mo for a while, told him the location of Sect Hall and left.
After Feng Guang left, Su Mo was in no hurry to retrieve his reward. He activated the array in the courtyard and entered the room to start cultivating.
He had taken out a large amount of Lower Spiritual Crystals and started devouring continuously. His Cultivation started to increase rapidly.
He did not want to reach Level 9 Martial Emperor Realm, but rather, prepare for his Cultivation to increase to the Peak of Level 8 Martial Emperor Realm. He wanted to wait until his foundation was solid before breaking through the bottleneck of the realm.
As time passed by, Su Mo continued devouring. Sections of small piles of Lower Spiritual Crystals were devoured by him. By the time he had devoured about 150,000 Lower Spiritual Crystals, his Cultivation had finally reached the peak of Level 8 Martial Emperor Realm.
“The consumption is increasing!” Su Mo sighed. He only had about 100,000 Lower Spiritual Crystals left, which included those which he had obtained from the Sun Moon Tribe warrior from the soul search.
He did not know if 100,000 Lower Spiritual Crystals were enough to sustain him to breakthrough Level 9 Martial Emperor Realm.
After a while, Su Mo closed the array in the courtyard and left as he walked towards Sect Hall.
He knew that the rewards of the Core Disciples of Path Sect would not be lavish. However, he currently did not have a lot of Spiritual Crystals and, as such, would not pass up any rewards.
The mountain bustled with activity as many Path Sect Disciples went in and out, chatting amongst themselves in an endless stream of voices.
“Although there are not many Path Sect disciples, their overall strength is indeed powerful!” Su Mo lamented. He realised that the Cultivation of the Path Sect disciples was very high and they were much more powerful than the disciples from Shenwu Academy.
Sect Hall was located in the lower part of the mountainside of Wen Dao Mountain. It was a magnificent hall and it bustled with activity.
As he walked into Sect Hall, Su Mo realised that the hall was full of people. There was more than a hundred disciples and it was extremely crowded.
After looking around for a moment, Su Mo understood that the disciples were there to receive their mission from the elder of Path Sect Hall.
As he looked at the figures of the disciples, Su Mo could not help but think back to many years ago, when he had received his mission at Gale Island.
Su Mo was in no rush to retrieve his reward. He stood quietly in a corner, waiting for the crowd to receive their missions before collecting his reward.
“Elder Zheng, is there a mission that is suitable for me?”
At that moment, a rough voice suddenly sounded and a young man was seen striding into the hall.
This young man wore a long, white robe. He was tall and his body was very sturdy.
“It’s Lu Gang!”
“Lu Gang, too, has come to receive his mission?”
“Lu Gang will only receive extremely difficult missions!”
The crowd in the hall was instantly surprised when they saw the tall young man and they instantly cleared a path for him.
Su Mo looked at the tall young man and realised that his cultivation had reached the Peak of Level 9 Martial Emperor Realm. He was just one step away from reaching Martial Honoured Realm.
