Chapter 1621: Senior And Junior Brothers
Su Mo came to the Merit Hall again and saw Tu Fu. The Merit Hall was a place to accept and turn in missions.
“Greetings, Senior Brother Tu Fu!” Su Mo came to the stone counter and cupped his fist at Tu Fu, who was behind the counter.
When Tu Fu heard Su Mo’s voice, he opened his eyes to look at Su Mo and asked, “Su Mo, what’s up?”
“Senior Brother, I would like to take on a mission.” Su Mo replied.
“All right. Do you want to take on the mission in the Ming Xu Galaxy or the Ancientspirit Galaxy?” Tu Fu asked.
“I would like to participate in Sky Dragon Contest at the Ancientspirit Galaxy!” Su Mo replied. He was shocked to learn that Myriad Worlds Mountain knew of his whereabouts. If it was not so, Tu Fu would not have asked such a question.
“Sky Dragon Contest?”
When Tu Fu heard Su Mo’s reply, he was not surprised. After pondering for a while, he warned Su Mo, “You and Jiang Shenye have to take on this task. However, given your current strength, it will be difficult for you to accomplish it. If your cultivation level does not meet the requirements before Sky Dragon Contest takes place, we will have to get someone from the other galaxies to take on the task.”
Su Mo was shocked when he heard what Tu Fu had said. Even if he and Jiang Shenye had accepted the task, Myriad Worlds Mountain would not place their hopes on them.
If his strength and Jiang Shenye’s strength were not powerful enough by then, Myriad Worlds Mountain would assign more powerful people from the other galaxies to come to the Ancientspirit Galaxy to participate in Sky Dragon Contest.
“I understand!” Su Mo nodded.
Tu Fu nodded and took out a green Jade Slip to make a note. He then told Su Mo, “Within these two years, you have to increase your strength as quickly as you can! If you can complete this mission, you will be handsomely rewarded!”
“Yes, Senior Brother!” Su Mo nodded.
“Great. You can go back now! Before Sky Dragon Contest starts, Myriad Worlds Mountain will summon you and give you the method to obtain the Heaven and Earth Qi!” Tu Fu said and waved his hand.
“All right!” Su Mo cupped his fist at Tu Fu and left Merit Hall.
After Su Mo left Merit Hall, he went back to the Square where Jiang Shenye was waiting for him.
“Have you taken on the mission?” Jiang Shenye asked.
“Yes, I have!” Su Mo nodded.
“Great. Let’s get back to the Ancientspirit Galaxy!” Jiang Shenye said.
The two of them then headed for the Ancientspirit Galaxy through the wormhole at Myriad Worlds Mountain.
“Brother Su, who is more senior between the two of us?”
As they were being teleported, Jiang Shenye asked Su Mo with a smile as he felt bored doing nothing.
“Hohoho, does it matter which of us is more senior?” Su Mo smiled and shook his head. It would not give him an edge even if he were the Senior Brother.
“Brother Su, how about this? We shall go according to our strength, as that is commonly accepted. We shall use Sky Dragon Contest to decide who is more senior. What do you think of this suggestion?” Jiang Shenye asked with a smile after he thought of the idea.
“Sure!” Su Mo nodded.
“Great. Whoever becomes the champion at Sky Dragon Contest will be the Senior Brother!” Jiang Shenye said solemnly. In actual fact, he could not care less who was more senior.
He had suggested it as he would like to put more pressure on him since there would be many powerful people participating in the Sky Dragon Contest.
All the geniuses from the various forces who were below 100 years old and had a cultivation level below Martial Sage Realm would take part in Sky Dragon Contest. There would be many martial artists who were at the Peak of Rank 9 Martial Honored Realm.
If Jiang Shenye was unable to advance his cultivation level in the coming two years, he would be defeated at the first round at Sky Dragon Contest and he could forget about emerging as the champion.
Fortunately, he had the help of Xu Wushen, the Holy Elder in his sect, and as Xu Wushen was the disciple of Myriad Worlds Mountain as well, he would guide him along the way.
Based on that, Jiang Shenye’s cultivation level would advance rapidly in the next two years.
Even if he could not advance to Rank 9 Martial Honored Realm before Sky Dragon Contest and could only reach Rank 8 Martial Honored Realm, he had confidence in emerging as the champion.
However, as one’s cultivation level became higher, it took a longer period of time to advance. Jiang Shenye had the confidence of advancing to Rank 7 Martial Honored Realm within two years but he knew that it would be tough for him to advance to Rank 8 Martial Honored Realm.
“All right. I would like to see your power as well!”
Su Mo replied with a smile. Having said that, he suddenly thought of a question and he asked, “By the way, which force is having the highest-grade Ancient Dragon’s Vein at the moment?”
“The Ancient Dragon’s Vein is at our Triple Deities Sect!” Jiang Shenye replied. Triple Deities Sect had obtained the right to use the highest-grade Ancient Dragon’s Vein several times and it had been with them for 800 years.
That was the reason Triple Deities Sect could be so powerful. For the past 800 years, Triple Deities Sect had assumed the position of Overlord among the human race in the Ancientspirit Galaxy due to the Dragon’s Vein.
In the past 800 years, the geniuses from the other forces were not powerful. However, this time around, several gifted geniuses had emerged from the various forces, causing Triple Deities Sect to lose confidence in obtaining the right to use the Dragon’s Vein.
“Is it in Triple Deities Sect?” Su Mo became silent when he heard it. In that case, regardless of which of them completed the mission, Triple Deities Sect would not be affected by the outcome.
“Brother Su, you read too much into it!”
Jiang Shenye knew what Su Mo was thinking when he saw his expression and he explained, “No harm will come to the Ancient Dragon’s Vein when we draw out the Heaven and Earth Qi. The Ancient Dragon’s Vein will continue to produce the Heaven and Earth Qi!”
When Su Mo heard the explanation, he was enlightened. If that was the case, Jiang Shenye would not betray Triple Deities Sect.
The two of them then chatted along the way and after some time they started to work on their own cultivation.
A few days later, the two of them returned to True Sage Territory. After they left the space in True Sage Territory, they appeared on a mountain peak in the outside world.
“Brother Su, where do you intend to go to? Is it to Star Guzhou?” Jiang Shenye asked.
“Yes!” Su Mo nodded.
“I am going back to Trinity Star. We are going the same way, so let’s travel together!” Jiang Shenye said. Triple Deities Sect was located at Trinity Star and it was near Star Guzhou.
Su Mo and Jiang Shenye then traveled together. They left the wild forest and headed for the Teleportation venue.
A ghostly shadow that was under a withered tree quickly followed them, without them noticing.
Mountain Demon had been waiting there for a month and he was already getting impatient. He was surprised to find out that Jiang Shenye had the same ability as Su Mo to open up True Sage Territory.
Mountain Demon was curious as to what Su Mo and Jiang Shenye were doing in True Sage Territory, as they had been there for a long period of time.
Is there a big secret in True Sage Territory?
Mountain Demon was puzzled and he could only continue to follow behind them. Once he was near Star Guzhou, he would send the news back.
The Holy Son would then send his men to kill Su Mo and they would be able to get the information they needed by torturing Su Mo.
Su Mo and Jiang Shenye did not know that they had been followed. They traveled to star after star and soon they were nearer to Star Guzhou and Trinity Star.
After more than 10 days, the two of them came to a small star. It was a Teleportation venue in a city.
It was time for them to go their separate ways to Star Guzhou and Trinity Star.
