“You girls are going out for training as well?” Su Mo was slightly surprised and turned his gaze toward Hong Qingxuan.
“Brother Su Mo, do you have a destination in mind?” Hong Qingxuan asked with a smile.
“No!” Su Mo shook his head in response. He had always gone wherever he liked and never had a specific destination!
“Brother Su Mo, since you don’t have a destination, and you aren’t familiar with Dark Domain, why don’t you join us and head for Skysea Lake?”
“What’s Skysea Lake?” Su Mo asked.
Hong Qingxuan fixed her hair and was about to answer him, but Huang Yao interrupted and replied, “Skysea Lake is the biggest lake in the Dark Domain, spanning over several hundred thousand kilometers. It contains countless islands and large numbers of post-archean ruins. It’s the perfect training ground for Enlightenment Realm martial artists like us!”
“Oh!” After a brief thought, Su Mo replied, “Let’s travel together then!”
Su Mo was indeed unfamiliar with Dark Domain. In fact, he was completely clueless about this domain, so it would be nice to travel with them!
Although he was not fond of Huang Yao, he did not mind travelling with her, since Hong Qingxuan was also around. After all, Su Mo was pretty fond of Hong Qingxuan.
The only inconvenience was that he could not devour freely with them around.
“Hehe, let’s go!” Hong Qingxuan said.
The three of them then left Celestialspirit Sect together and headed for Skysea Lake.
Skysea Lake was over 100,000 kilometers away from Celestialspirit Sect. With their speed, they could reach it in three days.
Although Hong Qingxuan was only at Lv 1 Enlightenment Realm, she might have cultivated a powerful body move that brought her speed to Su Mo’s level.
“Junior Brother Su Mo, you’re so impressive that even Murong Wudi was not your match!” Huang Yao exclaimed.
“It’s nothing!” Su Mo replied flatly, since he did not want to chat with her. He vividly remembered that she had given him a scornful look back at the Casino Valley.
“How is that nothing? You’re truly peerless now!” Huang Yao smiled and added, “I doubt that there is anyone at your level in Dark Domain who could defeat you.”
“Junior Brother Su Mo, although I’m a level above you, I’m much weaker than you. You have to teach me a thing or two next time!”
Su Mo was speechless. He could tell that she was flirting with him, but he still nodded.
“Haha! I’ll be looking to you for help next time!” Huang Yao’s smile was dazzling.
Su Mo smiled bitterly in his mind. It seemed that he was attractive enough that Huang Yao, who was a top-tier beauty albeit losing to Hong Qingxuan, was interested in him.
On the other hand, Hong Qingxuan was mad that Huang Yao was so unladylike for hitting on Su Mo.
Hong Qingxuan felt uneasy and secretly glanced at Su Mo’s face. She was secretly relieved to see that Su Mo was indifferent.
She was actually worried that Su Mo might be interested in Huang Yao since she was both pretty and sexy. Most men could hardly turn her down.
Without any rest, the three of them finally arrived at the edge of Skysea Lake after three days.
Although it was called ‘Skysea Lake’, it was massive enough to be considered an ocean. Underwater demonic beasts could be faintly seen swimming in the lake, and some powerful ones occasionally created raging waves.
“Junior Sister Hong, Junior Brother Su Mo, since we did not rest during the journey, why don’t we take a day’s break at Golden Shark Island?” Huang Yao suggested.
Su Mo and Hong Qingxuan both nodded. They were pretty exhausted after three days of nonstop travelling, so a day’s break would be perfect.
As they flew above Skysea Lake, an island entered their sight after two hours. This was a small island that was less than 500 kilometers wide.
A city that was several times bigger than Skymoon Imperial City stood above the island.
“Is that Golden Shark Island?” Su Mo asked.
“That’s right, Golden Shark Island is the territory of Golden Shark Sect, and its Sect Leader is a Martial King Realm expert known as the Golden Shark King.” Hong Qingxuan introduced the island to Su Mo.
Nodding his head, Su Mo was inwardly amazed by the fact that a small island like this had a Martial King Realm expert in command. Dark Domain was indeed far too powerful to be compared to Hong Domain.
They soon arrived in the city.
It was an extremely prosperous city, its streets bustling with countless martial artists.
“This city is so prosperous!” Su Mo exclaimed.
“Golden Shark Island is located at the edge of Skysea Lake, making it the perfect stop for martial artists entering or leaving Skysea Lake, which is why it’s so prosperous.” Hong Qingxuan explained.
They went on to find a luxurious inn and booked three premium rooms, before enjoying a meal in the inn’s main hall.
“I’ve heard that Treasure Pavilion will be hosting an auction in two days!”
“Indeed, seems like there will be many exotic treasures in this auction, so many experts are rushing to Golden Shark Island for it.”
“That’s right! However, a normal person couldn’t attend Treasure Pavilion’s auction. Only experts in the True Darkness Realm and Enlightenment Realm martial artists with powerful backgrounds are qualified to join the auction.”
The hall was noisy from the patrons’ discussion about the auction.
“I didn’t expect to arrive at the perfect time to attend Treasure Pavilion’s auction!” Huang Yao laughed and said.
“Senior Sister Huang, do you want to attend the auction?” Su Mo asked.
“Of course! Treasure Pavilion is a huge chamber in Skysea Lake that frequently organizes auctions on the major islands. Every auction features numerous exotic treasures since martial artists that are training in Skysea Lake would auction the treasures that they’ve discovered.”
“Oh!” Su Mo nodded. He felt like attending the auction after hearing this, but he only had about 300,000 Medium Spiritual Stones.
300,000 Medium Spiritual Stones might be a huge sum for an average Enlightenment Realm martial artist, but it was completely insufficient for Su Mo. Moreover, he would not be interested in common treasures, and exotic treasures would cost far more than 300,000 Medium Spiritual Stones.
“Qingxuan, are you attending this auction?” Su Mo asked Hong Qingxuan.
Hong Qingxuan paused momentarily, then nodded and replied, “I don’t mind taking a look!”
“Alright then, we’ll attend the auction together two days later.” Su Mo replied.
Afterward, they finished the meal and returned to their respective rooms.
Sitting cross-legged on his bed, Su Mo fell into deep thought. The main purpose of this journey was to earn Spiritual Stones, followed by strengthening his cultivation.
Since there was no other way to earn Spiritual Stones, he could only venture into those ancient ruins and look for treasures.
However, some ancient ruins were so dangerous that he might die from a small mishap, so he had to focus on improving his strength first.
After a brief thought, Su Mo’s Vital Spirit formed three demonic shadows. He was cultivating Phantom Avatar, which he had not touched for a long time.
All of his unique skills had reached a bottleneck, so he must cultivate Phantom Avatar in order to improve his strength over a short period of time.
