Up in the sky, after Su Mo had killed the black-robed man, he reached out to remove his opponent’s storage ring.
Looking at all the blood and Vital Spirit flowing out from the black-robed man’s body, his eyes flickered as he contemplated on whether or not he should devour it. If he was to devour them now, he would be exposing his ability to Wu Sheng and Hong Qingxuan.
At that moment, Wu Sheng flew over.
“Su Mo, it is amazing how your strength has grown at such a terrifying pace in the two months since we last met!” Wu Sheng said excitedly.
Wu Sheng was normally a quiet and reserved person, but now his face was flushed with excitement.
“Haha!” Su Mo laughed softly as he appraised Wu Sheng. “You’re not too bad yourself! You are many times stronger than you were at the Top-100-talent Competition!”
Su Mo and Wu Sheng were on pretty good terms after they had teamed up in the Firmament Divine Realm, so they spoke casually amongst themselves.
Now that Wu Sheng was present, Su Mo gave up on devouring the black-robed man’s blood essence and Vital Spirit. He did not wish to display his Martial Soul’s ability in front of the others at the moment.
“My strength is nothing compared to yours!” Wu Sheng shook his head with a wry smile, but his eyes sparked with joy. It was true that his strength had improved rapidly over the past couple of months.
“Don’t belittle yourself. Let us work hard together!” Su Mo replied with a smile.
Now that Wu Sheng was an unofficial disciple of Brightgold Palace in the Firmament Realm, and had also obtained an ancient Legacy, his future looked bright. Su Mo planned to keep an eye on him in future. If Wu Sheng goes on to achieve great things, he would stand a chance at inheriting the orthodoxy of Brightgold Palace!
“Very well, let’s work hard together!” Wu Sheng nodded solemnly. Now that he had obtained the ancient Legacy, his confidence was further strengthened.
Just then, Hong Qingxuan also flew over.
Seeing this girl close-up, Su Mo couldn’t help but admire her beauty.
Hong Qingxuan was still dressed in white, with a full figure and a tiny waist.
Su Mo could clearly see her delicate features now that she was not wearing her veil. Her eyes were bright, her eyebrows curved prettily, her long eyelashes fluttered slightly, her porcelain skin was clear but slightly flushed, her lips red and moist, as delicate as a rose in full bloom.
“Many thanks, Su Mo!” She said softly.
After all, Su Mo had already saved her twice, so she was sincerely thankful to Su Mo.
“Haha, don’t mention it!” Su Mo smiled, then thought for a while before asking, “I’ve been meaning to ask, how did the two of you end up engaging the man from Cold-ball Hall in battle?”
“Wu Sheng and I were about to leave Hong Domain for Dark Domain. Unfortunately, someone caught wind of it and the man from Cold-blood Hall was waiting for us.” Hong Qingxuan sighed.
“Oh? You were also about to leave Hong Domain?” Su Mo was slightly surprised that the two of them had the same idea as him.
“Yes!” Hong Qingxuan nodded, and asked with a hint of surprise, “Were you planning on leaving too?”
“I was!” Su Mo nodded.
Hong Qingxuan nodded inwardly. With such incredible talent, Su Mo should indeed leave Hong Domain in search of a bigger stage, or Hong Domain would greatly impede his progress.
“In that case, let us travel together!” Hong Qingxuan laughed and continued, “If you were to travel alone, you would be wasting 99% of your time!”
Su Mo’s eyebrows raised at her words. Did this girl have some powerful treasure that could speed up their travels?
Even so, it was almost impossible to reduce travel time by 99%!
Su Mo nodded after giving it some thought.
“Alright, let us travel together!” Su Mo said.
Whether or not these two had a way to speed up the journey, he was willing to travel with them. A long journey lay ahead, and it would be too boring if he were to be travelling alone. Three people travelling together would be fun.
Most importantly, he would need to pass by Dark Domain on his way to Central Continent, so this was in line with his travel plans.
“Su Mo, we only need two months to reach Dark Domain!” Wu Sheng said.
“What? Just two months?” Su Mo was stunned. He had already spent one month crossing Hong Domain, and with over 30 other domains lay between Hong Domain and Dark Domain, how could this be possible?
“That doesn’t sound too possible. What method do you use to cross so many domains in just two months?” Su Mo asked doubtfully. He knew that Wu Sheng would not make empty promises, so maybe he had a way!
Hong Qingxuan chuckled and replied softly, “Su Mo, there are several other large domains en route to Dark Domain, and they all possess a Domain-teleporting Formation. I have a way to make use of their Transporting Formation.”
Su Mo was surprised to hear that they were referring to the Domain-teleporting Formation. He had heard of this Transporting Formation, but he did not know it was so powerful people could be transported across domains.
Su Mo couldn’t help the smile breaking across his face.If this was true, he would be saving a lot of time.
It seems like he made the right decision in choosing to travel with the both of them.
Then, the trio descended onto the ground.
“Uncle Nan, please return! Now that Su Mo has joined us, we don’t need you to continue escorting us. Please head back first to treat your wounds!” Hong Qingxuan addressed one of the middle-aged men.
“Elder Yang, you should leave too!” Wu Sheng told the other man.
Both of them had sustained serious injuries, and had a feeble aura. At their words, they first hesitated before nodding their heads.
Indeed, now that Su Mo had joined the group, there was no need for them to escort the duo. However, they did not know what kind of person Su Mo was, and couldn’t help but worry.
After watching Wu Sheng and Hong Qingxuan interacting happily with Su Mo, it was obvious that they were on good terms, and their worries eased.
“Su Mo, we are leaving our princess in your capable hands!” The man known as Uncle Nan reminded Su Mo before he left.
“Don’t worry! As long as I live, both of them will be fine!” Su Mo nodded.
“Alright!” Uncle Nan nodded. Both men then flew toward the skies, heading back toward Hong Domain.
“How bad are your injuries? Do you need to treat them first before we set off?” Su Mo asked Hong Qingxuan and Wu Sheng.
“I only sustained minor injuries, and will recover naturally in a couple of days!” Hong Qingxuan shook her head.
“Me too! Nothing to worry about!” Wu Sheng added.
“Alright, let’s go!”
The trio flew into the skies and headed westward, toward Martial Yuan Country.
