Hearing Elder Wei’s question, Xian Xuanyi replied, “I’m 90% confident about beating Feng Shaoyu, but I’ll start with Su Mo!”
Xiao Xuanyi wanted to kill Su Mo and he cared not for Feng Shaoyu.
“Ok!” Elder Wei nodded and continued, “Retreat immediately if you cannot defeat Feng Shaoyu. We’ll send someone else.”
Elder Wei was not interested in Su Mo so instead he told Xiao Xuanyi this.
Since the First Elder, Zhu Wen, had personally told them that they should not be merciful toward the disciples of Towering Sky Peak, he obviously wanted them dead.
In that case, he must not let the First Elder down. He could not guarantee the death of all three disciples of Towering Sky Peak, but he was confident in killing two of them.
“I understand!” Xiao Xuanyi nodded. Although Elder Wei did not care about Su Mo, Xiao Xuanyi knew for certain that Su Mo was even stronger than Feng Shaoyu.
Now, all they could do was to wait for the current fight with Hong Qingxuan to be over.
In the fighting ring, Hong Qingxuan was fighting against a lanky, yellow-robed young man. He was a tough opponent, even slightly stronger than a regular peak Lv 9 Enlightenment Realm martial artist.
After exchanging hundreds of blows, there was still no clear sign of a winner.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
There was an intense explosion in the fighting ring, forcing them to simultaneously back away.
“Junior Sister Hong, your strength is truly impressive, but you can’t defeat me!” the yellow-robed young man shook his head and said with a smile.
Upon hearing him, a smile bloomed on Hong Qingxuan’s face and she replied, “Perhaps I can!”
Just then, Hong Qingxuan raised a finger and pointed at the young man.
A teal finger radiance came left his finger and tore through the void, bursting toward the young man.
The yellow-robed young man was startled by this move. He had expected more from Hong Qingxuan than a finger radiance.
This finger radiance was not even as powerful as her previous attacks. How could it defeat him?
However, his expression changed in the next second.
This was because countless trees and plants on the nine mountains around the fighting ring withered as the finger radiance shot out. The vast amount of Wood Energy from these plants formed a teal air blast and gathered toward the finger radiance.
The finger radiance grew tremendously after absorbing the verdant energy and became a humongous teal finger in a matter of seconds.
The finger was several kilometers long, a few hundred meters across and contained a limitless wood aura.
“What?” the yellow-robed young man was so shock his hair stood tall. The power of this teal finger was equivalent to the attack of a Lv 1 True Darkness Realm martial artist.
“How is this possible?” dumbfounded, the young man yelled thunderously. He was already as powerful as a martial artist at a Half Step to the True Darkness Realm, but the difference between him and an actual True Darkness Realm martial artist was like that between a baby and an adult.
The spectators on watching from the nine peaks were equally stunned.
“How does Hong Qingxuan have such a powerful hidden card?”
“Impressive! As expected of the pro-disciple Fairy of the Ninth Heaven. Her strength is extraordinary!”
“If she’s as powerful as a Lv 1 True Darkness Realm martial artist when she’s only at Lv 7 Enlightenment Realm, she’ll be able to beat the entire outer gate when she reaches Lv 9 Enlightenment Realm!”
Everyone chatted over each other, filling the mountains with noise.
Su Mo raised his brow when he saw Hong Qingxuan’s attack. He knew that this was part of the Evergreen Palace’s Legacy of Martial Emperor. It was indeed a powerful move!
Su Mo was not astonished that the Legacy of Martial Emperor could make Hong Qingxuan so powerful. Furthermore, Hong Qingxuan had already been exceptionally talented.
Qian Xunyue said that there was something special about Hong Qingxuan’s body constitutions, but Su Mo noticed none of it!
Facing Hong Qingxuan’s incredible blow, the yellow-robed young man was knocked back, and left the fighting ring almost immediately.
He felt that he would die there if he did not leave.
After he departed the fighting ring, Hong Qingxuan dissipated the teal finger with a wave of her hand. The vast Wood Energy it contained soon dispersed into the surroundings.
Su Mo sighed inwardly when he saw the vast energy disappear. If he could absorb such a tremendous amount of Wood Energy, his wood Vital Spirit would definitely skyrocket.
At this point, Su Mo suddenly had an idea. He could ask for Hong Qingxuan’s help when he wanted to cultivate wood skills in the future. Then, he would make rapid progress with wood property abilities.
Su Mo rubbed his chin as he just realised why the master of Earth Palace had asked him to look for suitable descendants for the nine palaces!
The nine palaces of Firmament Palace were: Brightgold Palace, Evergreen Palace, Watermoon Palace, Firescorching Palace, Earth Palace, Wind-cloud Palace, Thunderous Palace, Illuminious Palace, and Darknight Palace.
Setting aside the last four palaces, if he could find suitable descendants for the Brightgold Palace, Evergreen Palace, Watermoon Palace, Firescorching Palace, and Earth Palace, he would have gathered experts of the five elements.
When that happened, if the other four descendants could support him with their enormous elemental power just like Hong Qingxuan, it would be a dream come true!
Su Mo felt more optimistic as he thought about the idea. He had already forgotten about finding the descendants of the nine palaces, but it seemed like this was now a matter of the utmost importance!
Hong Qingxuan must become the descendant of Earth Palace!
As for the other four palaces, Wu Sheng was the only candidate at the moment since he had obtained the Legacy of Brightgold Palace. However, he only received the Legacy of a half step to the Martial Emperor Realm and was not very talented.
Ok! Wu Sheng will be a back-up candidate for now!
Su Mo did not know any suitable candidates for the other three palaces at the moment. From now on, he had to keep an eye out for people who were extremely talented in the elements of water, fire, and earth.
He also had to look out for Wenren Tianyi who had obtained the Martial Emperor’s Legacy of Illuminious Palace previously. He was extremely talented so he needed to recruit him. Su Mo just did not know Wenren Tianyi’s whereabouts.
While Su Mo was considering the descendants for the nine palaces, Hong Qingxuan turned her head and gazed at him.
Her eyes gleamed with delight as if she was saying, “Brother Su Mo, Did you see my performance? Not bad, right?”
However, she felt upset when she saw that Su Mo was not looking at her.
Hong Qingxuan sighed. She did not want to continue battling without Su Mo’s attention and returned to her peak.
Just as she left the fighting ring, a disciple of Holy Sky Peak dashed into the ring.
He was Xiao Xuanyi.
After he landed in the ring, he looked at Su Mo and yelled coldly, “Su Mo, do you dare accept my challenge?”
