Chapter 1921: Only One Person Missing
Su Mo was elated. According to his avatar, Su Yi, Si Kongyan, Jiang Fengran, Wen Rentian and the other palace masters had returned.
However, Su Mo was suddenly disappointed in the next instant. Xi’er had yet to return.
Si Kongyan, Jiang Fengran, Wen Rentian, Long Teng, Yi Xiaoxiao and Zhan Luan had all returned with the exception of Xi’er.
Su Mo’s heart fell. All of them must have returned upon hearing what happened to him.
After all, he wouldn’t dare to say that he was famous throughout Infinite Region, but his reputation was high in a few major galaxies.
The group must have rushed back to Tushan Town upon hearing his news.
Yet, Xi’er had not returned and Su Mo could only conclude that something had happened to her.
Unless Xi’er had not heard his news, she would have returned.
Su Mo fell silent as he abandoned the thought of heading to Ming Xu Galaxy first and headed back towards Star Guzhou.
It was not an urgent matter to find Qingxuan and he decided to go back to Town Tushan to meet up with the rest. After all, it had been a long while since everyone had gathered together.
Time flew by. Su Mo headed back on his Natal Spiritual Sword without using the Teleportation Arrays.
About a month later, Su Mo arrived back at Tushan Town in Star Guzhou.
His body flashed through the sky and he lowered himself onto the martial stage in Firmament Palace. He changed his appearance back to what his real body looked like.
Su Mo did not hide his aura as he was letting the entire Firmament Palace know of his arrival.
“Palace Master has returned!”
“Su Mo is back!”
“Mo’er, you are back!”
In an instant, everyone in Firmament Palace knew that Su Mo had returned.
Shoosh shoosh shoosh!!
Piercing sounds ruptured the air as a large crowd gathered before the martial stage in a second. In just a mere breath, the 3 levels of the stands around the martial stage were filled with people.
“Mo’er you are finally back!” Su Hong spoke first, his face full of relief.
The news about the True Demons Hunting Order had spread through Ancientspirit Galaxy and Firmament Palace naturally knew about what had happened.
In that period of time, it was as though a dark cloud had fallen over Firmament Palace.
Yet, the news about Su Mo escaping the chase in Ming Xu Galaxy and entering True Sage World had reached the ears of the Firmament Palace.
Although everyone was slightly relieved, they were stilled filled with worry and fear.
After all, according to what they knew, almost no one had survived after being issued the True Demon Hunting Order.
“Father, rest assured! No one can kill me!” Su Mo smiled slightly, maintaining his overall relaxed attitude. He did not want others to worry for him.
With that, his eyes shifted around and he spotted the Palace Masters that had returned.
Not only that, Qing Ya and Cai Yun had also returned.
Aside from Xi’er, all the Nine Palace Masters had arrived.
The eight people’s cultivation ranks had surged. Long Teng and Yi Xiaoxiao had the highest cultivation ranks among the palace masters.
As the descendant of the Dragon Tribe, the evolution of one’s blood force could not be measured. Long Teng had become a Martial Sage while Yi Xiaoxiao was a Sage-to-be.
As for the others, Si Kongyan was a Rank 8 Martial Honorable, the highest cultivation-ranked palace master .
Zhan Luan was a Rank 5 Martial Honorable as he had been the weakest among the batch.
“Everyone who is an elder and above, head to the grand halls!”
Su Mo did not waste words with the crowd as he yelled loudly before he headed towards Conference Hall.
Conference Hall was where important matters were discussed and it could fit close to 100 people in it.
Most of the elders were Martial Honorables. Things had changed in Firmament Palace. Only those who were Martial Honorables could become elders.
Granted, Su Hong was an elder under special circumstances, although his cultivation rank was rather low.
Su Mo sat on the main seat in the hall, a perk of his aura being that of a king.
“Si Kongyan, Jiang Fengran, Zhan Luan, Wenren Tiandu, where have the 4 of you been?” Su Mo stared at the group and asked.
Su Mo knew that Long Teng and Yi Xiaoxiao had been in Archosaur Galaxy and hence he didn’t inquire about them.
“Su Mo, Jiang Fengran and I were in Levitation Galaxy while Zhan Luan and Tiandu were in Black Death Galaxy!” Si Kongyan answered.
“How did you guys go to such a far away place?” Su Mo asked. Although Black Death Galaxy and Levitation Galaxy were rather close by Galaxies, the group’s cultivation rank were low and they could not have gone to such a far place.
“We were all recruited by others!” The average looking Wenren Tiandu answered. He felt rather ashamed when he came back this time because his cultivation rank was the lowest among the nine.
“That’s right! A few top superpowers have special people all around looking for geniuses to enter their sects. That is how we left!” Jiang Fengran added.
“I see! Which superpowers did you guys enter?” Su Mo asked again.
“Jiang Fengran and I are in Levitation God Sect while the other two are in Sacred Sword Sect!” Si Kongyan answered.
“Levitation God Sect and Sacred Sword Sect!” Su Mo exclaimed in surprise. He knew these two sects.
Levitation God Sect was Gao Haoran’s sect, while Sacred Sword Sect was the sect that Li Tongtian and Baili Liqing were at.
“Hehe, the four of us are considered top talents in the sects that we are in. We are also given a large number of resources and I even brought back quite a lot this time!” Si Kongyan laughed.
“Is that so?” Su Mo smiled widely in disbelief. Si Kongyan had changed!
“Indeed, Si Kongyan had given us over 1,000,000 Upper Spiritual Crystals and many other resources!” Emperor Shi said in a low voice. However, his eyes were deep and a slight worry crossed over them because Xi’er had not returned.
Su Mo glanced at Emperor Shi, understanding his worry. Thereafter, he turned towards Si Kongyan and the rest and asked, “Do you all know where Xi’er is?”
After hearing Su Mo’s words, the group exchanged looks and shook their heads slightly.
They had journeyed out not as a group, and hence they didn’t know where Xi’er had gone.
Where could Xi’er be?
Su Mo didn’t want to think about any mishap that had happened to her and could only hope that Xi’er was closing herself in cultivation.
“Su Mo, how did you deal with the True Demon Hunting Order? And what is with your cultivation rank?”
Right at that point, Long Teng asked, confusion sweeping his face. He realized that Su Mo’s cultivation rank had lowered.
Back at Sun Moon Tribe, Su Mo was a Rank 8 Martial Honorable but he was only a Rank 6 Martial Honorable now.
Not only that, Su Mo’s aura was somewhat different from what it had been.
“I changed a physical body!” Su Mo replied.
The group immediately exclaimed in fright. He changed a physical body, so was his original body destroyed?
Looking at the shocked expressions of the crowd, Su Mo briefly explained what had happened to them.
Many people heaved a sigh of relief upon hearing Su Mo’s explanation. It was just a temporary measure, nothing too big.
After a few casual sentences were exchanged with the crowd and after understanding the group’s circumstances, Su Mo inquired about the Firmament Palace’s growth.
Overall, things were going smoothly. Many were talents’ cultivation ranks had grown quickly. Although the competition between superpowers were intense, they were all geniuses who fared no worse than the godly talents.
The growth of Firmament Palace was fast. Things were improving day by day and its strength was increasing.
Furthermore, Imperial Ancestor Court Faction was being cooperative, maintaining a good relationship with Firmament Palace.
A long while later, Su Mo flipped over his palm and retrieved a green ring before he handed it to Emperor Shi, “Father-in-law, this is a spatial device that has a space 800 kilometers wide. The Spiritual Qi in it is very dense. Lets let it be the camp of Firmament Palace in the future!”
Tushan Town wasn’t sustainable for Firmament Palace and the Green Sacred Ring could be the base camp of the Firmament Palace, where the inside of it could be the inner sect while the outside grew.
That was the only way they could all be safe.
