At that point, Xu Wushen stared at the crowd and said in a loud voice, “The winner of the Sky Dragon Contest has the privilege of cultivating for 1 day in the Ancient Dragons Vein. While I am supposed to hand over the Ancient Dragon’s Vein to the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction and when he cultivates is up to him, Su Mo has a deep grudge with the Sorcerer Tribe and has to leave the Ancientspirit Galaxy soon. As such, he wants to cultivate inside the Dragon’s Vein first before I hand over the Dragon’s Vein, does anyone object this?”
Xu Wushen was creating an opportunity for Su Mo to retrieve the Heaven and Earth Qi inside the Ancient Dragon Vein.
Although Su Mo would have a chance even after the Ancient Dragon’s Vein was passed over to the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction, retrieving the Heaven and Earth Qi within the Triple Deities Sect would be safer.
“No problem!” The king spoke first. This did not bother him.
In actual fact, as long as the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction obtained the Ancient Dragon Vein, allowing Su Mo to cultivate in it for 1 year was not a problem, not to mention 1 day.
The other members of the superpowers also nodded their heads, not objecting to Xu Wushen’s proposal.
They understood that Su Mo could not stay in Ancientspirit Galaxy any longer and had to leave as fast as possible.
“Then please wait one more day, everyone!” Xu Wushen said in a loud voice before his body flashed and he flew towards a hill not far away.
Su Mo immediately followed after him.
Very quickly, the two arrived in front of a hill. An array covering the hill separated it from the outside world.
Xu Wushen used a seal to open the array and both of them landed in a cave on the hill.
The cave linked to the underground and the two continuously went deeper and deeper until they were more than a dozen meters underground.
Sky City wasn’t located in a sturdy and hard ground, after a few dozen meters, they passed the earth’s crust.
Within the upper mantle of the earth was a large space that was about a few hundred meters wide. In the middle of the space, a large, majestic dragon lay.
This dragon was glittering with yellow light and was about a few hundred meters long. Although its entire body was made up of Qi, it appeared virtual and misty. Wise, terrifying eyes stared at the two visitors as the lively scales along its body showed that it was a mythical being.
“This is the Dragon’s Vein!” Su Mo’s bright eyes stared in wonder at the dragon in front of him.
If he didn’t look carefully, he could not tell that it was a Dragon’s Vein, almost mistaking it for a real dragon.
“That’s right, this is the Ancient Dragon’s Vein. The Dragon’s Vein has already died down but at its peak, it had the strength of a Rank 2 Empty God!” Xu Wushen said.
“Strong!” Su Mo exclaimed in surprise. The Dragon’s Vein actually had such strength.
“Mm. However, due to many years of use, it is no longer at its prime!”
Xu Wushen said before he waved his hand, “Go! Take the Heaven and Earth Qi to complete your mission!”
Su Mo nodded his head before he lifted his leg and walked towards the Dragon’s Vein. As soon as the Dragon’s Vein saw Su Mo near it, it shifted desperately and tried to move. However, seal marks brightened on its body and locked it down.
These numerous seal marks belonged to the seal that bound the Dragon’s Vein to its place, limiting its strength and preventing it from escaping.
Su Mo quickly entered through the Dragon’s Vein’s mouth and successfully went into the body of the Dragon’s Vein.
His heart leapt in shock once he was inside the Dragon’s Vein. Vast Spiritual Qi that seemed endless from the Dragon Vein body was dense.
However, it was a pity that he had just broken through to the Rank 7 Martial Honorable Realm and devouring Spiritual Qi was useless.
“I should just get the Heaven and Earth Qi!”
Su Mo sighed before he narrowed his eyes and carefully recalled the secret technique that Myriad World Mountain had passed to him to retrieve the Heaven and Earth Qi.
A few moments later, Su Mo lifted his hand and allowed his fingers to dance to release the secret technique.
Not long later, a special array about the size of a picture appeared between his fingers.
Su Mo pressed his fingers forward and allowed the array to float through the air and press on the Dragon’s Vein.
Right at that moment, Su Mo could feel the Dragon’s Vein shifting painfully under his fingers.
The Dragon’s Vein roared loudly, shaking the space in the earth’s mantle. Following which, a light yellow aura flowed out from all directions of the Dragon’s Vein body and gathered onto Su Mo’s array.
This yellow aura was thin, as though it was the size of a hair strand.
Around half an hour later, no more yellow aura flowed out of the Dragon’s Vein.
On the other hand, the yellow aura had amassed into a fist-sized yellow ball of Qi on the seal, as though it were a yellow fruit.
“What is the use of this Heaven and Earth Qi?” Su Mo stared at the yellow aura and wondered curiously. He could not feel any special aura from the Heaven and Earth Qi.
This aura was old, deep, dense and it was evident that it came from ancient times.
Overall, Su Mo felt a strange vibe from the Qi.
Without pondering over it further, Su Mo retrieve a large jade bottle and kept the Heaven and Earth Qi within it.
“This Dragon’s Vein is almost useless!”
After he kept the Heaven and Earth Qi, Su Mo muttered under his breath. He could clearly feel that once the Heaven and Earth Qi was sucked out of the Dragon’s Vein, it weakened drastically.
Originally, Su Mo was still reluctant to give the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction the Dragon Vein. But upon seeing its state, he was carefree.
Granted, even if Su Mo was reluctant to give the Dragon’s Vein over to the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction, he could not devour it. After all the Dragon’s Vein belonged to all the major superpowers of Ancientspirit Galaxy.
He did not obtain the Dragon’s Vein just because he was first for the contest.
Even Xu Wushen would not allow Su Mo to devour the Dragon’s Vein. After 100 years, the Triple Deities Sect would want to obtain the Dragon’s Vein for their own use.
However, the Dragon’s Vein had weakened considerably and it could no longer be considered a valuable treasure.
Once he had retrieved the Heaven and Earth Qi, Su Mo sat down crossed-legged and began to absorb the Spiritual Qi inside the Dragon Vein.
Although his cultivation rank was already at the peak of the Rank 7 Martial Honorable Realm, he could only cultivate in the Dragon Vein to allow his internal Dark Force to become more pure since he could not break through to the rank 8 Martial Honorable Realm.
Slightly activating the Devouring Fighting Soul, rolls of Spiritual Qi immediately entered his body and Su Mo started to refine it, stabilizing his cultivation base.
One day of time passed by in the blink of an eye, Su Mo did not raise his cultivation rank but only cleansed the Dark Force in his body.
With that, he left the body of the Dragon’s Vein.
Xu Wushen had been waiting for him outside and had not left.
“No problem right?” Xu Wushen asked in a low voice once Su Mo appeared.
“No problem!” Su Mo nodded his head in confirmation. Thereafter, the two left the earth’s core and returned to the mountain.
Xu Wushen flew into the air and instantly entered the high skies. He stretched out his palm and heavily reached down to grab.
With a single squeeze of his palm, the ground ruptured and a large crack appeared at the foot of the mountain.
The large Dragon’s Vein flew into the air as though a real mystic dragon was waking up from its slumber. Its large body floated majestically through the air.
The Dragon Vein threw its head back and roared thunderously into the sky. Its body shifted desperately, trying to break out of the shackles of the seal. Yet, the seal marks glowed brightly and prevented the escape of the Dragon Vein.
Many members of the superpowers stared in wonder at this scene.
“The Ancient Dragon’s Vein!” The king’s eyes lit up brightly. At that moment, all the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction members were highly excited.
With the Dragon’s Vein, the powers of the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction would surge up considerably.
Without hesitation, the king flew towards Xu Wushen and stopped behind him, his eyes brimming with joy.
“From now on, the Ancient Dragon’s Vein will belong to the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction for 100 years!”
Xu Wushen’s gaze fell on the king as he announced in a loud voice.
“Thank you Elder Xu Wushen!” The king grinned widely as he cupped his fists towards Xu Wushen.
“Mm!” Xu Wushen lightly accepted the king’s salutation and with a wave of his hand, the massive Ancient Dragon’s Vein flew in front of the king.
Instantly, the king joyfully waved his hand and put the Dragon’s Vein in his spacial device.
A wondrous sense of joy filled his heart once the Dragon’s Vein entered his hands.
Su Mo also fell silent as he witnessed this scene. Thereafter, his body flew into the air and he arrived beside the king.
“Your majesty, I will have to leave the Ancientspirit Galaxy soon and I don’t know when I will return. I have a favor to ask!” Su Mo cupped his fists respectfully towards the king.
“Ha ha, just request whatever you want. As long as it is within my abilities, I will not let you down!” The King laughed. He would not reject Su Mo’s request because his subject had obtained the Ancient Dragon’s Vein with his own efforts for the Imperial Ancestor Court.
“I have a few friends that I hope you will allow to enter the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction and grant them the permission to use the Ancient Dragon’s Vein without any restrictions!” Su Mo said in a deep voice. He was prepared to inform his avatar to lead some geniuses from the Firmament Palace to the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction to cultivate in the Ancient Dragon’s Vein.
“Haha, no problem!” Without hesitation, the king immediately agreed to Su Mo’s request. The members of the Imperial Ancestor Court would use the Ancient Dragon’s Vein at their leisure in the future, a few additional people did not matter.
Furthermore, it was entirely thanks to Su Mo’s efforts that they had managed to obtain the Dragon’s Vein. He naturally would not reject Su Mo’s request.
However, the king would soon come to regret his carefree agreement to Su Mo’s request.
That was because Su Mo had more ‘friends’ than the disciples of the Imperial Ancestor Court
“Thank you your majesty. When I return in the future, I will definitely thank you with Senior Li!” Su Mo smiled widely as he cupped his fists towards the king.
The king’s heart instantly tightened when he heard Su Mo mention Sword God Li Tongtian.
He knew that Su Mo was warning him to stick to his words.
“Hehe, Su Mo, don’t worry. This is what I should do. Let all your friends enter the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction!” The king smiled as he said.
Su Mo nodded his head. With that, he did not exchange any more words with the king and whipped around to fly towards the mountain.
It was time for him to leave. When he returned, he would definitely soak the Sorcerer Tribe in a blood bath.
He had been in grave danger this time and thanked God for the arrival of Li Tongtian. However, he knew that he may not be so lucky next time.
The Dragon’s Vein exchange had been completed. The king and the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction were brimming with joy. With that, all the superpowers took their leave.
