Su Mo suddenly turned around and saw five black-robed men standing 100 meters away from him.
They were dressed in long black robes covering their entire bodies, including their faces.
“Was it you who killed the people in this town?” Su Mo coldly looked at the five men. Killing desire shone in his eyes.
“Correct! These small fries should be honored that they have become nourishment for our cultivation!” The tall leader’s hoarse voice made Su Mo sick.
“Oh, how powerful your Qi blood is! I didn’t expect you to be an expert. If I could absorb you, my cultivation would make great progress!” He cackled as he sized Su Mo up. “I like to suck the blood essence of the strong, which is beneficial!”
“Kill him and bleed him dry!”
The black-robed men cackled and rushed toward Su Mo, Their powerful blood Qi emitted strong rays of bloody light.
“You have all polluted the air with your very existence. You shall die!” Su Mo’s eyes were cold. These people were not worthy of being called human beings. They were just a group of beasts who treated human lives like dirt.
Countless sword Qi burst out as Su Mo pulled out his Spirit-slayer Sword and swung it.
BANG! BANG! BANG!
As sword Qi flashed across, the five black-robed men were cut into ground meat before they could even make a sound.
Su Mo dug out a storage ring and four storage pouches from these unrecognizable bodies.
Upon further examination, he found nothing but a few hundred thousand Lower Spiritual Stones and some elixirs within. These people were so poor.
After keeping the storage ring and the storage pouches, Su Mo soared into the sky and soon disappeared.
After some time, another three black-robed men arrived at that very spot.
Standing in front of the five dead men, they remained silent.
Not long later, a stout black-robed man said in a sinister voice, “Anyone who dares to kill our Cold-blood Hall disciples will have to die!”
He then looked at the man next to him and said, “Xue Li, find him!”
Xue Li nodded and then released his Martial Soul. As the purple light flared behind him, a strange demonic beast with a long nose and big ears appeared.
He sniffed at the dead people and the surroundings, then pointed north and said, “Headed north, left half a day before!”
“Send this message back to the headquarters. Let’s follow him!”
After the sturdy man gave the order, the trio rose into the sky and quickly flew northwards.
Su Mo kept heading north after leaving the town.
Brightsun Country was a small country with a small territory, so Su Mo crossed it and entered into the Great Hong Empire within two days.
The Great Hong Empire was the only empire and the center of Hong Domain. All the top sects in Hong Domain were located within the Great Hong Empire.
Not long later, Su Mo had arrived at a special city in the Great Hong Empire.
The city was known as Meteorite City. It had no city walls because it was located in a deep hole with a radius of 50 kilometers, which surprised Su Mo.
The sky above the city was protected by the Air-sealing Formation. Not even an Enlightenment Realm expert could fly directly into the city. The only way in was to climb down the several-mile-long ladders laid out in all directions.
It was said that the deep hole where the city was located was created by a fallen meteor several hundred years ago.
After paying a few Lower Spiritual Stones as an entrance fee, Su Mo entered the city.
While walking down the streets, Su Mo recalled Han Yijian’s words from the last banquet. He mentioned that there was a great place for cultivating, which would have a great effect on one’s cultivation and martial arts techniques.
Su Mo decided to take a look. If that was true, he would then spend half a month there cultivating before heading directly to the Holy City of Top 100.
As he inquired about this place, he was told that this place was named Meteorite Tower, and stood in the center of the city.
Su Mo soon came to Meteorite Tower.
Although named Meteorite Tower, it looked nothing like one. It was a giant oval Meteorite with a diameter of two kilometers.
As soon as Su Mo walked into the gate of Meteorite Tower, a middle-aged man behind the counter in the lobby smiled and said, “Master, would you like to cultivate here?”
“Yes!” Su Mo nodded.
“Meteorite Tower has four floors and the price for each floor varies. Master, could you tell me which floor you’re going to?” The middle-aged man asked.
“Could you tell me what the differences are?”
“Meteorite Tower was formed by a meteorite, which imbued it with extraordinary power. Your cultivating speed will improve by 50% on the first floor, 100% on the second floor, 200% on the third floor, and 300% on the four floor. This effect applies to both cultivation and martial arts techniques practice.”
“The price for the first floor is 10,000 Lower Spiritual Stones a day, with the price tripling for every additional floor.” The middle-aged man patiently introduced the benefits of each floor to Su Mo. Many martial artists across the Hong Domain would visit the Meteorite Tower every day, coming by word of mouth. It was important to give a detailed introduction to each first-time visitor, to ensure that they were fully aware of the effects the Tower had.
Su Mo gasped when he heard those words. He was not only amazed at the extraordinary effect this Tower had, but he was also shocked by the price.
The price of the first floor was 10,000 Lower Spiritual Stones a day!
If the price tripled for every floor, this meant that the price of the fourth floor was 270,000 Lower Spiritual Stones, which would be way too expensive!
No one could afford the price, except for those who came from power and money.
“Master, which floor will you choose? How long will you cultivate for?” the middle-aged man asked with a smile.
After giving it some thought, Su Mo gritted his teeth and said, “I’ll cultivate for two weeks on the fourth floor!”
Of course, he would choose the best. He would be willing to spend more as long as the effect was good enough.
Spiritual Stones, after all, would come and go. As long as he became stronger, he would not lack Spiritual Stones.
He then paid the price, 4,050,000 Lower Spiritual Stones.
Next, Su Mo followed the attendant up to the fourth floor.
There were dozens of cultivating rooms on the fourth floor, and the attendant ushered Su Mo to room 10.
“Master, this is your cultivating room. No one will be able to enter without your permission for the next two weeks!” The attendant said.
“Thank you!” Su Mo nodded.
Then, he entered cultivating room 10.
It was a spacious room, with an area of nearly 100 square meters. Besides a futon, there was nothing else in the room.
Impatient to begin, Su Mo promptly sat cross-legged and started to cultivate Nirvana Cultivation Method.
Genuine Vitality flowed quickly through his meridians. It only took a few minutes to complete a small circulation of genuine Qi.
“That’s fast!” Su Mo’s eyes lit up. The flow speed of Genuine Vitality here was roughly three times faster than that in the outside world.
“It’s truly amazing, but I wonder how Meteorite Tower works?” Su Mo exclaimed.
This Meteorite Tower must be a true treasure. The power behind this tower must be incredibly formidable to be able to retain this tower in their possession.
