Chapter 708: The Firmament Sect
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo broke through the space rift every hour to check his direction and restore his Dark Force for a moment, and then he continued to travel inside the space rift.
Time trickled by.
Three days later, on Yu Mountain in the Skymoon Country—
With a crisp sound, a rift suddenly appeared above Yu Mountain, and then a gray-haired youth walked out of it.
It was Su Mo!
“I’m in the Skymoon Country!”
Su Mo swept around with his eyes, which appeared to be reminiscing.
Four years ago, Duan Jingtian and Jin Yang had fought here and shocked the entire Skymoon Country.
Back then, he was just a Spiritual Martial Realm Outer Disciple of Gale Island.
In the twinkle of an eye, four years had passed!
Su Mo sighed and flew to Gale Island.
In the center of Star-water Lake, Gale Island was still there, but it looked completely different.
The magnificent palaces and towers built with fine gold and copper tiles stood on the rolling hills, looking splendid.
This was the dominator of the Hong Domain, the Firmament Sect.
It was prosperous and extremely powerful.
After the Cold-blood Hall’s side-hall was destroyed in the Hong Domain, the former superpowers returned and rose up again. However, they did not dare to mess with the Firmament Sect.
Even without a Sect Leader, those Lv 5 demonic beasts were invincible in the Hong Domain.
The sect had been recruiting disciples recently. Over the past several months, the number of Firmament Sect disciples had surged to 10 times what it was before, reaching more than 50,000.
Countless young talents in the Hong Domain had traveled far just to be disciples of the Firmament Sect.
However, the sect had high standards for recruiting. One had to have a Martial Soul higher than Rank 8 Human Class to be a Firmament Sect disciple.
The sect focused on quality.
Even many famous Rogue Cultivators had joined the Firmament Sect.
And that was only because the Sect Leader was the unprecedented monstrous talent, Su Mo!
On the mountain pass, a large number of disciples hustled along as they chatted with each other.
“Our sect has been developing so fast. I think we can rule the Hong Domain soon!”
“We’re already invincible in the Hong Domain! It’s just that the three Hall Chiefs haven’t moved; otherwise, who could defeat a Lv 5 demonic beast?”
“The three Hall Chiefs just don’t want any wars. In a few years when we are powerful enough, the other powers will submit to us!”
“Dunno when the Sect Leader will come back. That’s who I want to become!”
A large group of young disciples chatted while walking to the sect square.
A fair maiden’s face was filled with admiration while she said, “I heard that our Sect Leader is only 19. I, Xiao Ling’er, will only marry a talent like him!”
The crowd snorted at her. Nowadays, there were countless women who wanted to marry the Sect Leader.
“Senior Sister Xiao, if you’re interested in our Sect Leader, you can go ask Senior Brother Niu!” said another beautiful maiden as she pointed with her hand.
In front of the crowd, a sturdy young man walked by. He was not tall and looked pretty dark.
There were many people surrounding him and looking at him respectfully.
Niu Xiaohu felt helpless about them.
Since the words about his relationship with Su Mo had spread out, his status in the sect had surged up high. Many people asked him about Su Mo every day, which made him quite upset.
At this point, a beam of light cut through the void and rushed toward Gale Island from the skyline.
In the blink of an eye, it arrived at the island.
“What rapid speed!”
“It must be a super expert!”
Many disciples began to shout out loud while staring at the light.
The light stopped above the island and changed into a gray-haired youth.
Everybody on the island stared at him with mouths agape.
Su Mo was quite surprised to discover that the island was so busy. He then swept the crowd with his eyes and noticed Niu Xiaohu.
“Xiaohu, long time no see!” Su Mo smiled.
“Su Mo… no, sorry… Sect Leader, you’re back!” Niu Xiaohu looked shocked and expressionless.
Su Mo nodded his head and sized Niu Xiaohu up. He was only at Lv 6 Spiritual Martial Realm!
He could not help sighing inwardly. He used to be so close to Niu Xiaohu, but as the gap between their cultivation levels widened, it became hard for them to get along equally as before.
And facing him, Niu Xiaohu now had great pressure and could not act as he had in the old days.
“Xiaohu, we should talk when I have time!”
Su Mo then directly flew to the Main Hall of the Firmament Sect.
Niu Xiaohu nodded silently with a dazed look on his face.
After a short moment of silence, the entire island went into an uproar.
“Our leader is back!”
“The Sect Leader is back!”
“Haha! Finally! I saw the Sect Leader with my own eyes!”
Everybody went crazy and rushed to the Main Hall.
“Go call my sister!”
“Her biggest dream is to see the Sect Leader!”
Countless disciples poured into the square of the Main Hall. In just a few seconds, tens of thousands of disciples had thronged the square and surrounded the Main Hall.
There was no one in the hall when Su Mo arrived, so he just sat in the Sect Leader’s seat.
“Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!”
Experts flew into the hall one after another.
In a short time, more than a hundred elders rushed into the hall, including the three Hall Chiefs—Su Hong, Qing Pingzi, and Yue Qun.
Everyone stared at Su Mo with eyes full of excitement.
“Mo’er, you’re finally back!” Su Hong’s face flushed.
Su Mo also smiled at his father.
“Greetings, Sect Leader!”
They then bowed down to Su Mo.
Su Mo raised his hands and said, “Everyone, rise!”
He then swept the crowd with his eyes and said, “You Three Hall Chiefs, stay here. The others can go back now.”
The elders felt helpless, yet they did not dare to refuse.
“We’re leaving, Sect Leader!”
With that, the elders left the hall.
There were only Su Hong, Qing Pingzi, Yue Qun, and Su Mo in the hall now.
