Chapter 1989: Grand Supreme Elder
Bam bam bam!!
Explosive sounds came from the grand array, shaking the skies. Under the crowd of attacks by the elders of Great Fist Sect, the shockwaves on the array became more turbulent.
The attacks from the Great Fist Sect did not stop and the sound of the explosions deafened ears.
Many Outer Disciples of Firmament Sect were terrified and they mentally prepared themselves to escape when the array was broken.
Boom boom boom!
A few moments later, the defensive array was in grave danger, cracks had appeared and it threatened to break apart at any moment.
“Emperor Shi, are you still not willing to give in?”
Qu Zhong burst out laughing. He was absolutely confident of breaking the array within fifteen minutes.
“I said it already, all of you are about to die!” Emperor Shi nonchalantly replied. He had received the news that Su Mo had entered Star Guzhou already.
“Since you are so stubborn, don’t blame me for being heartless!”
Qu Zhong’s eyes filled with killing intent. Since Emperor Shi had refused to give in, he would massacre the Firmament Sect.
“Everyone listen up. increase your attack speeds and break apart the array!” Qu Zhong shouted. With that, Dark Force surged in his body and he prepared for an ultimate attack.
“You are very bold!”
Right at that moment, a light voice rang in Qu Zhong’s ears. This voice was sharp and cold and yet, Qu Zhong could not pinpoint who the voice belonged to.
“Who is it?”
Qu Zhong screamed in shock as he lifted his head to look at the firmament. A figure of a young man slowly floated over.
This man was like an invisible god. Although his actions appeared slow as he stepped into the sky, his speed was incredible.
“Who are you?” The eyebrows of Qu Zhong furrowed together as his face hardened. Although he could not see through the young man’s cultivation rank, he knew that the young man was not ordinary and he must be a Martial Sage.
The group of elders from Great Fist Sect also stopped their attacks on the array as their faces turned solemn while they stared at the young man.
As Emperor Shi and some Firmament Sect people stared at the young man in the sky, they heaved a sigh of relief.
Although the young man’s face was not Su Mo, they knew that Su Mo had arrived.
Su Mo stepped out into the air against the flood of questions to him. Without speaking, a thick force surged out from underneath his feet.
This force was as strong as mountains and it pressed onto the sky, not giving room for anyone to breath.
As they felt the terrifying power suppressing their bodies, the group of men from Great Fist Sect exclaimed in fright.
Under the strong force on them, Qu Zhong and the elders he had brought with him were unable to stabilize themselves in mid-air and they instantly fell to the ground.
Bam bam bam!!
Booming sounds erupted through the sky as the group of Great Fist Sect men hit the floor with a loud bang.
“Who are you?” Qu Zhong crawled up from the ground and stared at the young man as he roared.
His heart filled with disappointment. The young man was a Martial Sage and he was not something that the Great Fist Sect could stand against.
His heart filled with suspicion. Firmament Sect was a recent superpower with no background to it. Why was there a Martial Sage to help them?
Many of the Firmament Sect disciples were also surprised as they observed the scene. What cultivation rank was this expert? Why did he help them?
These disciples were all new disciples who had entered the sect within the last two years. Hence, they did not know the background of Firmament Sect.
“Grand Supreme Elder of the Firmament Sect!” Su Mo lightly replied.
Qu Zhong exclaimed in surprise. The Firmament Sect actually had a Grand Supreme Elder who was a Martial Sage, who could it be?
Without hesitation, Qu Zhong’s body flew into the air, trying to pierce through the terrifying suppressive force on him.
He knew that if he did not escape, he would die.
Shoosh shoosh shoosh!!
The group of elders from Great Fist Sect also did not delay as their speeds exploded and they shot into the sky.
Su Mo sighed slightly as he saw their actions. These men sought their own deaths voluntarily and they could not blame him.
With that, he gave a mental thought and a sharp Sword Radiance shot out and pierce through the group of Great Fist Sect elders.
Ah ah ah!!
Screams pierced the air as every Sword Radiance accurately struck a person’s head.
The attack on the head destroyed one’s Fighting Soul. Qu Zhong and the group of elders from Great Fist Sect died on the spot instantly.
All this happened in the blink of an eye. The average Firmament Sect disciples were unable to see what happened clearly before all the Great Fist Sect attackers had died.
Only the top ranks in the Firmament Sect vaguely saw how Qu Zhong and his group were killed.
Pst pst pst!
In an instant, many cold breaths were sucked in from Firmament Sect as many disciples were taken aback by what they saw.
In the eyes of the disciples, the group of Great Fist Sect men were strong Martial Honorables. Yet, they had died mercilessly in the blink of an eye.
No one wasn dumb and they could guess that the group had been killed by the young man who had arrived.
“We actually have a Grand Supreme Elder!”
“Incredible! So the Firmament Sect has an expert protecting it!”
Many disciples exclaimed in awe. The stronger Firmament Sect was, the faster their growth.
Su Mo had killed the Great Fist Sect members without batting an eyelid. Then, he walked towards the gates of Firmament Sect.
Emperor Shi did not hesitate to open the defensive array.
“Let’s go to the inner sect!”
Emperor Shi ordered the group of disciples as he walked in front of Su Mo and said in a low voice.
Su Mo nodded his head and followed Emperor Shi to the inner sect. The other elders of the inner sect also followed closely after them.
The inner sect of Firmament Sect was inside the Sacred Green Ring which was stored in a secure place inside the sect by Emperor Shi.
Furthermore, there was a special entrance constructed that allowed people to enter the Sacred Green Ring.
This entrance was located in a large hall. The moment Su Mo walked into the hall, the space around him spiraled and teleported him into the Sacred Green Ring.
As Su Mo hovered in the air above Wild Mountain Range inside the Sacred Green Ring, he nodded his head in satisfaction.
The Wild Mountain Range in front of him had changed completely. The old trees and forests within a few kilometers from him had been cleared.
Buildings lined the sacred mountain from top to bottom.
This was the Inner Sect of Firmament Sect.
With that, Su Mo followed Emperor Shi and the group into the inner portion of sacred mountain. The space was large and vast and it was the place that Qin Busi, his brothers and Yi Xiaoxiao lived.
However, it had not become the core area of the Firmament Sect. Without any special allowances, even elders were not allowed to enter the place.
Many magnificent halls and palaces were built inside the sacred mountain, one of them, specially constructed for Su Mo.
Inside the palace, Su Mo, Emperor Shi, Haiming Jiang and the top ranked in the Firmament Sect conversed for a long time, informing Su Mo of the growth status of the sect.
The Firmament Sect had invited more than 30,000 Outer Disciples, all of them talented and bright.
Furthermore, the Firmament Sect wasn’t short on resources as everything had proceeded smoothly. Time was their only limit.
After all, the Firmament Sect was too young and even if everyone was talented and resources were plentiful, they needed time to grow!
This was the concrete details that were too shallow.
According to Emperor Shi’s estimates, they needed a minimum of twenty years for a large number of Martial Sages to appear in the sect.
With that, Su Mo decided to merge additional Fighting Souls for the top ranked in the Firmament Sect to increase their talents.
