Chapter 729: Master
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Sky-sea Pavilion’s honorary craftsmen were at least Lv 5. Some were even at Lv 6 or 7.
There were three classes of honorary craftsmen: Bronze, silver, and gold.
These classes were determined by the craftsman’s contribution to Sky-sea Pavilion and his talent, rather than his level.
Most craftsmen began as Bronze Class craftsmen when they first joined the pavilion.
Only a few talented people could start from Silver Class and increase their class based on their contributions.
However, Su Mo’s golden badge meant that he was a Gold Class honorary craftsman.
Elder Shan had bestowed this to him not only because he believed Su Mo had demonic talent, but also because he wanted the blueprint of that shield.
Master Wei felt like the golden honorary craftsman badge in his hands weighed a ton.
Gold Class craftsmen were much more highly regarded in Sky-sea Pavilion than a Medium Lv 4 craftsman like him.
Even the Pavilion Leader of Qingyuan City’s Craftsmanship Pavilion was barely on Su Mo’s level.
Master Wei’s expression was full of embarrassment and regret.
“Will he hold a grudge against me?”
Master Wei was extremely worried because he had just threatened to break this honorary craftsman’s leg!
Everyone was confused to see Master Wei’s expression and wondered if Su Mo had done something to make the master so uncomfortable.
“Master Wei, should we kick these two out?” Gan Ling asked quietly.
Master Wei was enraged by her words and turned to slap her.
With a crisp sound, Gan Ling was tossed back and thudded heavily against the pavilion door, with a blood red palm print stained on her face.
“Kick her out and make sure she never comes back!” he roared angrily.
Then, he stepped towards Su Mo, bowed respectfully, and said, “Wei Yang greets the Master. I apologize for not recognizing you earlier!”
Master Wei was both terrified and angry at Gan Ling. If not for Gan Ling, he would not have offended this talented honorary craftsman!
At the same time, Master Wei was also shocked that this young man, who seemed to be still a teenager, was a Gold Class honorary craftsman!
The entire pavilion was silent as everyone watched this interaction in confusion.
Why did Master Wei suddenly change his attitude?
Gan Ling was still lying on the floor in shock, because she had no idea why Master Wei had hit her, or why he was being so respectful to Su Mo!
Liang Tong also stood agape, staring straight at Su Mo.
Liang Tong could not wrap his head around the fact that Master Wei had called Su Mo a Master. Was Su Mo also a craftsman who was even above his level?
Otherwise, Master Wei would not call him that.
How could this be?
As a craftsman of Firmament Sect, Liang Tong had no idea that Su Mo was a craftsman.
Su Mo was already exceptional in cultivating, so how did he find time for craftsmanship?
Liang Tong was stunned and thought that this was impossible!
“Who is the leader of this Pavilion?” Su Mo asked, not wanting to waste time talking to Master Wei.
“Our Pavilion Leader is upstairs!” Master Wei said respectfully.
“Lead the way!” Su Mo waved his hand.
“Yes, sir!” responded Master Wei.
Then, he handed the badge to Su Mo carefully with both hands.
Then, Master Wei led Su Mo up the stairs.
Liang Tong came back to his senses and hurriedly followed them.
Soon, the three of them disappeared from the view of everyone in the hall.
“My god! Who is this person?”
“He must be very special if Master Wei is so respectful toward him!”
“If even Master Wei calls him Master, he must be a Lv 5 Craftsman!”
“He must be scarily talented if he has reached Lv 5 at such a young age!”
Everyone was chattering away excitingly.
Gan Ling remained stunned amongst all the chatter.
“It’s not possible!” she muttered to herself.
She could not accept the fact that she had been banished from the Pavilion
The craftsmen all lived and worked on the second floor of the pavilion.
They entered a giant room with a long hallway on its right, lined on both sides with rooms.
Master Wei brought Su Mo straight to the last room and knocked on its door.
Thump! Thump! Thump!
A deep voice behind the door said, “Come in!”
Then, Master Wei pushed open the door gently and brought Su Mo and Liang Tong into the room.
It was a craftsmanship room that contained a giant crafting furnace, and an old man sat cross-legged on the ground, refreshing himself with closed eyes.
This old man was the same age as Liang Tong and slightly pudgy, with a thin beard hanging from his chin.
He slowly opened his eyes when he heard their footsteps.
“Greetings, Pavilion Leader, this is a Gold Class honorary craftsman!” Master Wei said, clasping his fists.
The old man stood up immediately and sized Su Mo up warily.
He was so young to be a high-class honorary craftsman!
The old man clasped his fists toward Su Mo and asked, “I am the Leader of Sky-sea Pavilion’s Qingyuan City branch, Zhou Tai, could you show me your badge?”
Zhou Tai was clearly skeptical that Su Mo became a Gold Class honorary craftsman at such a young age and wanted to be sure.
“Of course!” Su Mo nodded and handed the badge to Zhou Tai.
Zhou Tai examined the badge carefully, nodded slightly, and handed it to Su Mo.
“It is an honor to have such a Master here. I apologize for the late welcome!” Zhou Tai said politely, clasping his fists.
“Pavilion Leader, you’re too welcome! Please call me Su Mo!”
Su Mo clasped his fist in return. His position was not much higher than Zhou Tai’s, so he did not put on any airs.
Then, Zhou Tai dismissed Master Wei and brought Su Mo and Liang Tong to the living room and sat them down.
“Master Su Mo, to what do I owe your visit?” Zhou Tai asked directly.
He knew that Su Mo must have a motive for coming.
“I’m here to buy some craftsmanship materials!” Su Mo replied.
“That’s easy! Since you’re our pavilion’s Gold Class honorary craftsman, you’ll receive a discount!” Zhou Tai said with a smile.
