Chapter 1606: The People To Protect
In a large, ancient city in Star Guzhou, Su Mo and Yun Youyou walked out together from a Teleportation Formation.
“Holy Lady, this is Star Guzhou!” With a silver mask across his face, Su Mo spoke to Yun Youyou.
“Why are you always wearing a mask?” Yun Youyou’s face was calm and she asked bewilderedly. Ever since they left Ancient Tong City, Su Mo had always worn the mask and he never took it off.
“I have quite a number of enemies in Ancientspirit Galaxy and I cannot be recognised!” Su Mo explained. He had to be careful as his reputation was far-reaching in Ancientspirit Galaxy as well.
Not to mention the other stars. If he didn’t conceal his identity, he could be recognised anywhere he went on Star Guzhou.
Of course, even with the silver mask on his face, Su Mo could also be recognised by others.
A typical high-ranked Martial Honorable could discover his identity, not to mention a Martial Sage.
The silver mask only hid Su Mo’s appearance and aura. People he was familiar with would recognise him easily.
“Let’s go, I will bring you to Firmament Palace!” Su Mo urged.
“Mm!” Yun Youyou nodded her head slightly.
The two swiftly left the city they were in and Su Mo took a while to note the directions before he flew towards Tushan Town.
The city they were in currently was rather far off from Tushan Town. However, with Su Mo and Yun Youyou’s cultivation, they arrived at Tushan Town within 2 days.
The moment Tushan Town appeared in his sight, Su Mo was surprised. Tushan Town had grown after so many years of not seeing it.
High walls surrounding the town had caused it to become a small city. Guards even stood by the city gates.
Firmament Palace was located in the center of the town, as though it was the government body of the town.
“This is Tushan Town and Firmament Palace is inside!” Su Mo informed Yun Youyou joyfully.
“Mm!” Yun Youyou nodded her head.
Then, the two of them flew faster and entered the city directly. Once they reached the air above Firmament Palace, they lowered themselves onto a fighting ground.
At that point, many people were at the fighting ground and Su Mo did a brief scan to find no less than 500 people at the grounds.
These people were all the top ranked officials of the Firmament Palace and they were those who Su Mo recognised.
You Tianhan had already informed the others about the Su Mo’s return and hence all of them were waiting on the grounds for Su Mo.
Wearing emotional expressions, the few hundred people stared unblinkingly at Su Mo as they were all silent.
Su Mo stood in the middle of the crowd and slowly took down his mask. His eyes scanned the crowd, looking at everyone he knew.
The one right in front of him was You Tianhan and Emperor Shi. Behind them were Hai Mingjiang, Dragon King of the East Sea, Master Qian Fu Ge, Su Hong, Qing Mingzi, Elder Wei, Liang Tong, the older generation of martial artists.
Further behind were An Nuan Tianchen, Jun Wusi, Luo Qianfan, Wu Sheng, Su Ning, Liu Yushan, Luo Huan, Bai Yiner and the other younger martial artists.
“Long time no see!” Su Mo smiled warmly towards the crowd. At that point, a warm rush of emotion rushed through his heart. He felt a sense of home, returning to the place where his relatives and friends were.
The Firmament Palace was his home and those people who he had brought here were those that he could trust and count on.
These were all people that he would protect and, no matter where he went, this was his home.
“It is great that you are back! Great that you are back!” Su Hong was so touched and he spoke first. Although You Tianhan was around to protect Firmament Palace and he had passed the message to Su Hong that Su Mo was doing well, Su Hong was very emotional when his son returned.
Everyone nodded their heads silently. It was the Firmament Palace’s blessing that Su Mo returned.
Su Mo sighed slightly as his eyes fell upon the group of people in the back corner.
There were a few dozen males and females as well as old and young people there. Their cultivation ranks were not high and they were mostly of the True Spirit Realm and the True Strength Realm.
These people were those from the Great Hong Empire who had been to the Holy City of Top 100. They were Hong Qingtian, Rong Qingwang and others.
They were all Hong Qingxuan’s fellow tribe members.
When Su Mo dominated the Firmament World and waited for the Sorcerer Tribe’s trial testers, he had already accepted these people into the Firmament Palace.
Back then, he had accepted everyone who he knew and everyone who was related to him in any way.
“Everyone, I have brought Qingxuan back!” Su Mo said to the people of the Great Hong Empire.
A group of Great Hong Empire wore emotional looks and surrounded Yun Youyou.
Yun Youyou frowned slightly, she did not remember anyone.
“Holy Lady, I didn’t lie to you. These are all your fellow tribe members from the Great Hong Empire. Your parents and your siblings are among them!” Su Mo looked towards Yun Youyou and told her.
“I…!” Yun Youyou wore a mixed expression, and she looked towards the crowd at a loss.
“Ninth sister, do you remember me? I am your brother!” Hong Qingtian pointed to himself and said. He already knew about Hong Qingxuan’s situation.
You Tianhan had informed them about her.
“Xuan’er, I am your father! Do you really not remember anything?” A serious-looking middle aged man said. His appearance was similar to Hong Qingxuan’s and he was Hong Qingxuan’s father.
“I…!” Yun Youyuo tried to speak but she didn’t know what to say. Her face was filled with anxiousness and helplessness.
“Holy Lady, don’t worry, you will have the time to get to know them!”
Su Mo smiled at Yun Youyou and reassured her. With that, he immediately called for men to arrange a room for Yun Youyou to interact with the Great Hong Empire.
With that, Su Mo walked towards a large palace with a group of people from the Firmament Palace.
In the palace, the group sat down and talked for a full hour, carefully updating Su Mo about the Firmament Palace’s doings in the time he was gone.
This made Su Mo very satisfied. The current Firmament Palace was much stronger than it was previously.
Emperor Shi and Hai Mingjiang had reached the peak of the Rank 9 Martial King Realm. This speed of cultivation was unprecedented.
Most of them had Twin Martial Souls and even Twin Fighting Souls. Their talents were exceptional.
There were a hundred Martial Emperors in the Firmament Palace by then and this was considered a good strength.
An hour later, Su Mo dismissed the group and sat alone with Emperor Shi in the hall.
“Father-in-law , is there news on Xi’er?” Su Mo looked towards Emperor Shi and sighed. Ever since Xi’er had left, there was no news from her and this made Su Mo worried.
“No!” Emperor Shi heard Su Mo’s question and sighed deeply.
Su Mo’s eyebrows furrowed. Where did Xi’er go? Nothing had happened to her, right?
“Oh right, Lady Qing Ya returned a short while ago!” Emperor Shi suddenly exclaimed.
“Oh? Qing Ya returned? Where did she go?” Su Mo instantly jumped for joy. Ever since the Nine Palace Masters left, there had been no news of her. It was a good thing that Qing Ya had returned since this meant that she was safe.
“She has left. She left a huge amount of resources behind and she is currently the disciple of the Triple Deities Sect!” Emperor Shi updated Su Mo.
“Triple Deities Sect?” Su Mo was surprised. The Triple Deities Sect was the most powerful superpower of the human race in the Ancientspirit Galaxy. Qing Ya had actually been accepted there?
“Not bad!” Su Mo smiled. It was a good opportunity for Qing Ya to have entered the Tripe Deities Sect.
Furthermore, Qing Ya had left resources for the Firmament Palace and this made Su Mo highly satisfied.
In the future, Su Mo wouldn’t have to support the Firmament Palace by himself. Qing Ya could share some of his burden.
Qing Ya’s talents were originally the lowest among the Nine Palace Masters. However Su Mo had given her a strong Green Vine Fighting Soul previously.
The Qing Ya with Twin Fighting Souls would have made talents that were close to an exceptional genius.
“Father-in-law, quickly send men to Triple Deities Sect to inform Qing Ya and ask her to return!” Su Mo instructed in a low voice.
Qing Ya’s current cultivation was not low and Su Mo wanted to try to merge another Fighting Soul with her, allowing her to become a genius with three Fighting Souls.
Of course, that was only his intention. Whether or not Qing Ya’s Spiritual Soul could actually take the pressure would have to be tested.
