Chapter 1990: Advantage
Su Mo temporarily did not leave Firmament Sect as he stayed in the palace inside Sacred Mountain, cultivating and raising his strength.
He was in no hurry to massacre the Sorcerer Tribe. After all, Wu Sheng, the leader of the Sorcerer Tribe, was a Rank 2 Empty God and Su Mo did not have the absolute confidence of winning against him.
In the Empty God Realm, every difference in rank was like the difference between heaven and earth. Although Su Mo was confident in killing the average Rank 1 Empty Gods, he felt that he might fall behind a Rank 2 Empty God.
As such, he prepared to raise his combat strength to be the level of sage.
Time passed by quickly and months passed. Su Mo took time out to merge Fighting Souls for many people.
However, his energy was limited and he could not take much time off to merge Fighting Souls for others. As such, only about ten people received the blessing of an additional Fighting Soul.
In this time period, the news of him killing the top godly talent of True Demons Tribe, Mo Jue, topping the King Sage Board spread to Ancientspirit Galaxy.
In an instant, Ancientspirit Galaxy was shaken by the news.
Nonetheless, this news wasn’t earth-shaking to Ancientspirit Galaxy. After all, Su Mo was a godly talent who had grown up in Ancientspirit Galaxy.
As the news spread through the galaxy, some were happy while some were devastated. The Firmament Sect men and the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction members were ecstatic.
On the other hand, Su Mo’s enemies were utterly devastated. These included the Sorcerer Tribe and the Taishi Family.
Especially the Sorcerer Tribe, which was shaken by the event as millions of tribesmen shuddered in fear.
After all, to the ordinary Sorcerer Tribe member, Su Mo was a devil, a death god who could exact revenge on the Sorcerer Tribe at any moment.
The Sorcerer Tribe did not wait like a sitting duck against Su Mo and they immediately started to take full precautionary measures.
Cai Yun and Qing Ya returned to Firmament Sect after hearing the news before returning to their respective sects after catching up with Su Mo.
Regardless of the storm that brewed in the outside world, Su Mo sat down cross-legged and cultivated in the palace.
A long while later, Su Mo opened his eyes and spat out a mouthful of saliva in frustration.
Su Mo sighed helplessly. Ever since he had entered the Martial Sage Realm, not only did he need ten times more Spiritual Qi, his cultivation speed had also decreased by about ten times.
According to his estimation, he needed at least two more years to enter the End Stage of the Martial Sage Realm.
Falling silent, Su Mo gave a mental thought and five purplish-gold Dark Devouring Insects appeared beside him with a flash.
“Go!” Su Mo waved his hand and the five Dark Devouring Insects flew out of his palace.
He wanted these five Dark Devouring Insects to spy on the Sorcerer Tribe’s moves.
He would take action on the Sorcerer Tribe very soon and he needed to be informed of their actions.
Su Mo never looked down on the Sorcerer Tribe as it was ranked in the top 300 on the Ten Thousand Archean Tribe Board. It had lasted in Infinite Region for eons and Su Mo did not know the depth of their strength.
At the minimum, the Sorcerer Tribe would have defensive precautions against a threat.
The Dark Devouring Insect was small but its speed was fast. It was a great helping hand for Su Mo in getting the information he needed.
After this was done, Su Mo’s mind shifted to Qingxuan. She was safe for now.
He had already arranged for Su Yi to head to Ming Xu Galaxy and had received news about the situation there.
Mo Jue was no longer around and hence the engagement was over.
However, because of Mo Jue, Su Mo had offended a terrifying person, Demon God Jiu Yang, Mo Jue’s father.
Nonetheless, Su Mo ignored it. What about the True Demons Tribe? What about Demon God Jiu Yang? He would not fear them.
After a long while, Su Mo shut his eyes and continued his cultivation.
However, at that moment, a knocking sound appeared from his door. Su Mo allowed his spiritual consciousness out for a scan and was slightly taken aback.
“Come in!” Su Mo lightly called out.
The doors to his palace opened and Niu Xiaohu led five men in.
These men were the King of the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction and four other top men in the faction, The First Prince, Gu Cangtian, Second Princess, Gu Feifei, Third Prince, Gu Yuanji and Eighth Prince, Gu Tianyi.
“Grand Supreme Elder, the King of Imperial Ancestor Court Faction is here to see you!” Niu Xiaohu arrived in front of Su Mo and cupped his fists.
“Mm, Xiaohu, you may go first!” Su Mo lightly nodded his head.
“Yes!” Niu Xiaohu bowed before he took his leave.
“Su Mo, long time no see!” The King arrived in front of Su Mo and smiled as he cupped his fists.
By that point, even the King had to be respectful in front of Su Mo.
Gu Tianyi and the princes as well as the princess also looked at Su Mo with mixed emotions in their eyes.
How could they have known that Su Mo would grow so quickly? In the blink of an eye, he had become a talent that they could have never imagined.
“Sit!” Su Mo nodded his head before he waved his hand for a few futons to appear on the floor.
“Thank you!” The King thanked Su Mo before he sat down on a futon. Gu Tianyi and the three others also sat down.
“Why have you come here, King?” Su Mo smiled as he asked.
“Hehe, Su Mo. I have to say, I am older than you by so many years, call me old man!” The King smiled.
Su Mo nodded his head. Now that he was much stronger than the king, the King had to bow his head down to Su Mo.
“I am here mainly to suggest that the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction collaborate with the Firmament Sect. There are a lot of treasured places in the Imperial Court Faction which can be used by the Firmament Sect!” The King said.
“Thank you for the offer!” Su Mo nodded his head slightly.
“Hehe, you don’t have to thank me. The Imperial Ancestor Court Faction has interacted much with the Firmament Sect in these three years, we can be considered familiar with each other!” The King smiled.
“You can discuss this matter with the Sect Leader Emperor Shi. Emperor Shi is the one who makes the decisions for Firmament Sect.” Su Mo informed the King.
“Alright, I will discuss this with the Sect Leader!” The King nodded.
Su Mo softly acknowledged before his voice deepened, “Old man, I am often not in Ancientspirit Galaxy. I will have to trouble you to protect the Firmament Sect!”
Su Mo did not want a repeat of the previous matter. As such, he wanted the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction to help Firmament Sect out.
That was the only way he could rest assured.
Although a few of the Nine Palace Masters had become Martial Sages, they were often not in the sect.
For instance, Jiang Fengran was on a journey outside and Si Kongyan was nowhere to be found!
“Su Mo, rest assured. I will make arrangements for the event. I will make sure that Firmament Sect will not meet a similar danger!” The King nodded. He had been informed about the event where the Firmament Sect was attacked by Great Fist Sect.
The King was also worried that Su Mo would fume at the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction if Firmament Sect was massacred.
“Very well. When Firmament Sect rises to dominate Infinite Region, the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction will also dominate Ancientspirit Galaxy.”
Su Mo smiled slightly, his voice booming out. He had given the King and the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction a large advantage.
