Chapter 1693: An Earthshaking Plot
Su Mo dreamt a long dream as he slept.
He dreamt that he had returned to the Celestial Spirit Sect in Firmament World.
He was still a disciple of the Celestial Spirit Sect and everywhere around him were familiar faces.
Huang Fuqing, An Nuan, Hong Qingxuan and Qian Xunyue were all around him.
Su Mo was on Dark Heavens Mountain and he stared at Qian Xunyue in front of him. Qian Xunyue was as pretty as she was before and she wore a long white dress which made her look like a beautiful swan.
The elegance and calm aura around her caused hearts to flutter.
Right at that moment, a large group of Sorcerer Tribesmen with massive auras suddenly dropped down from the sky.
As an expert of the Sorcerer Tribe waved his hand, devastation and destruction occurred. The Celestial Spirit Sect was destroyed, the skies and earth were destroyed. Everything was engulfed in chaos.
Everyone died. Qian Xunyue also died!
As Su Mo witnessed this scene, he roared out in rage and hatred but he was powerless.
Instantly, he came to his senses.
In the starry sky, Su Mo’s eyelids flung open and he stood up immediately.
Heng Fei was shocked by Su Mo’s sudden awakening. He immediately exclaimed in joy, “Brother Su, you are finally awake!”
Su Mo scanned his surroundings and found himself in the starry sky. Seeing that he had escaped the Heavenly Sorcerer Star, he heaved a sigh of relief.
“Heng Fei, what happened? You aren’t injured, right?” Su Mo asked Heng Fei in a deep voice.
“How could I be?”
Heng Fei immediately laughed as he confidently said, “I, Heng Fei, have experienced many trials and tribunals. A measly Sorcerer Tribe cannot faze me.”
Su Mo was at loss for words. This guy really knows how to brag.
“How did you manage to escape?” Su Mo asked.
“I walked out of there in broad daylight! I am not as strong as exceptional geniuses like you, but in the field of schemes and plots, I am the absolute genius!” Heng Fei laughed as his eyes curved into a crescent moon shape.
Su Mo was surprised and he immediately chuckled softly. This lad really could brag. But no matter what, they had escaped.
“How long have I been unconscious?” Su Mo asked again. He still felt dizzy in his head and his mental strength had not fully recovered.
Luckily, he had only overspent his mental strength and his mind was not injured. He could probably recover within half a month.
“2 days!” Heng Fei said. The time that Su Mo was unconscious was below what he had expected from a normal person.
Su Mo nodded his head. Then, he thanked in a low voice, “Heng Fei, thank goodness for you. You saved my life!”
“No, don’t say it that way!”
Heng Fei waved his hand dismissively as he laughed, “You saved me. You saved all of us!”
“Either way, I am only alive now because of you!” Su Mo laughed lightheartedly. He was really in danger this time around and he owed Heng Fei one.
With that, Su Mo waved his hand and figures started to appear around him. They were all troops of the Red Dragon Camp.
“Everyone, we are safe now!” Su Mo stared at the crowd and announced joyfully.
The troops scanned their surroundings and heaved a huge sigh of relief.
“Squadron leader, thank you for saving us!”
“If it wasn’t for Squadron Leader, we would all be dead!”
“Squadron Leader, please accept my bow!”
Everyone spoke out one after another as the 81 troops all bowed sincerely towards Su Mo.
“This time, you all have to thank Heng Fei as well. He has rendered great help!” Su Mo added.
“Thank you, Squad Leader Heng Fei!”
“Thank you, Brother Heng!”
The troops thanked Heng Fei sincerely as well.
“Hehe, everyone need not be so polite. It is really a blessing that us brothers are still alive!” Heng Fei laughed out loud.
Yet, Su Mo had a solemn expression on his face. He wouldn’t return to the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction any time soon as the Sorcerer Tribe would not let him go. He would be in extra danger in the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction.
However, he would return there a year later as he had to go through the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction to obtain the right to enter the Sky Dragon Contest.
For this next year, he would travel to the Ancientspirit Galaxy and make his home anywhere he wanted!
As soon as Su Mo thought of the Sorcerer Tribe, a killing intent surged in his heart. The Sorcerer Tribe refused to let him go and he would not be bullied by the Sorcerer Tribe all the time.
He had to settle his grudge and the Sorcerer Tribe had to pay a heavy price.
“Everyone, please return to the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction!” Su Mo instructed.
“Squadron Leader, will you not be returning with us?” Heng Fei asked curiously. In front of the crowd, he addressed Su Mo by his proper name.
The troops turned to look curiously at Su Mo.
“Nope. I won’t be returning!” Su Mo shook his head.
“If you aren’t returning, then I won’t either. The Red Dragon Camp is too boring!” Heng Fei shook his head. He was done with staying at the Red Dragon Camp, it was boring and uninteresting and he would be cultivating every single day.
Now he had a chance to leave the Red Dragon Camp. After all, there was no way to leave the Red Dragon Camp under normal circumstances. He would be charged with a death sentence otherwise and pull his family down with him.
Right now, they were already regarded as a group who had died in battle!
The troops quickly exchanged looks as they heard Heng Fei’s words. Then, the Squad Leader Ge Li looked at Su Mo and said, “Squadron Leader, you saved our lives and we owe it to you. I am willing to follow you and not return to the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction!”
“That’s right. This is a good chance to leave the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction, I will not go back there!”
“Squadron Leader, I am willing to follow you!”
“I am willing to follow you too!”
Many people spoke out one after another as they presented their thoughts on not returning to the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction, but they wanted to follow Su Mo.
Su Mo was taken aback. He had not expected that the crowd would want to follow him instead of returning to the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction.
His face turned solemn. He could appoint these men to the Firmament Palace. After all, they were all rather talented and could become Martial Honorables soon. Some were even Martial Honorables already.
However, Su Mo had to monitor their loyalty.
“Who among you wants to return to the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction?” Su Mo gazed at the crowd and asked aloud.
There were a few people wearing hesitant looks on their faces. They had grown up in the Saint Royal City and they had deep memories there.
Of course, those who were willing to follow Su Mo did not intend to leave Saint Royal City forever. They would return once when the time was right.
“Squadron Leader, I … I would like to head back!”
“My family and friends are all in Saint Royal City and hence…!”
“Squadron Leader, thank you for saving me, I owe it to you!”
Around five people nervously spoke out. Although they were grateful to Su Mo for saving their lives, they still preferred to return to the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction and pursue their own paths.
They did not went to venture in the open and they preferred the safe haven of the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction.
“Mm, I will not stop you if you wish to return!” Su Mo nodded his head. Everyone had their own opinions and Su Mo wouldn’t force his on them.
Besides, he wasn’t afraid of the 5 people spreading the news that he was still alive in the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction. After all, he would eventually return.
With that, the 5 men bowed towards Su Mo and bid their farewells towards the rest of the troops before they flew out into the starry sky.
“Squadron Leader, where shall we go?” Heng Fei asked.
A bright flash of light crossed Su Mo’s eyes as he muttered in a low tone, “We are going to carry out an earthshaking plot that will allow all of you to get the rewards you deserve!”
