“Forbidden Area?” Su Mo frowned upon hearing this. But still, he would go there for Blood-striped Seed.
“Elder Hu, are the Mist Mountains dangerous?” he asked in a deep voice.
Elder Hu answered, “I don’t know about the exact danger in that place. But according to those who survived from there, people can get lost forever and can’t get out of there.”
“Understood!” If no murderous things were there, Su Mo was not afraid to go.
“I’m wondering… Brother Su Mo, can you continue to teach me the knowledge?” Elder Hu looked eager.
Su Mo chuckled and said, “Elder Hu, I’m staying here for a while. I can teach you after you digest what I said today.”
“Haha, good. Then you can live here. I’ll make the arrangements for you.”
Elder Hu was overjoyed because he could ask for craftsmanship advice any time now due to Su Mo staying here!
“Thank you very much, Elder Hu!”
The reason why Su Mo decided to stay was that he planned to improve his cultivation before going to the Mist Mountains.
He did not dare to underestimate that place. After all, it was a forbidden area.
“Follow me,” Elder Hu said with a beaming face before descending the stairs.
Su Mo got up and followed him.
Soon after, they arrived on the second floor.
“Elder Hu, what about Master Cui?” Su Mo could not live here at ease unless Master Cui was dealt with.
“Let’s go find him!” Elder Hu smiled. He, of course, knew what Su Mo meant.
They then walked to in front of a room on the second floor.
The door was directly pushed open by Elder Hu.
“Who is it?!”
Master Cui was meditating in the room. He thundered madly after the door had been opened.
However, his face changed upon seeing Elder Hu.
“Greetings, Deputy Hall Chief!”
He rose hurriedly and bowed.
He looked uneasy because he had just yelled at Elder Hu!
He glanced over at Su Mo and wondered why they were together.
Elder Hu’s face turned cold and he snorted, “Humph! Lil Cui, you’ve got balls!”
Master Cui’s heart fell to his feet upon hearing this. “Deputy Hall Chief, I didn’t know it was you. I’m sorry for not being polite. Please forgive me!”
Elder Hu looked solemn and said flatly, “Lil Cui, I heard that you’re going to punish my brother.”
Master Cui was struck dumb by the words.
“Deputy Hall Chief’s brother?
“Who is he talking about?
“When did I say that?”
Master Cui exclaimed hurriedly, “Deputy Hall Chief, I didn’t say that! I’d never dare to punish your brother!”
“Is that so?”
Elder Hu sneered and turned his head to Su Mo. “Brother Su Mo, Lil Cui has made such a big mistake. How should I deal with this?”
Master Cui suddenly stared agape at Su Mo.
“What the hell?”
He could not understand it! How could a 20-year-old kid, a little honorary craftsman, be the Deputy Hall Chief’s brother?
Su Mo smiled as he looked at Master Cui, and then said, “It is unforgivable. Just kill him!”
Elder Hu was shocked and then gave Su Mo a glance. He had not expected for Su Mo to be so ruthless.
However, Master Cui was nothing in his eyes. There were more than 30 Upper King Craftsmen in his Craftsmanship Hall, so it was not a big deal to kill one of them.
He would be glad to do this in exchange for Su Mo having a good impression of him.
“Alright!” Elder Hu nodded heavily.
While listening to the conversation, Master Cui suddenly turned pale with fright.
“Deputy Hall Chief, please don’t kill me!”
Master Cui said with a look of horror on his face, “I’ve done so many things for the Craftsmanship Hall over the years. I’ve never complained!”
He asked for mercy and tried to change Elder Hu’s mind.
Although Elder Hu was only a deputy, he was the one who was really in charge of the Craftsmanship Hall.
As for the Hall Chief, he was completely obsessed with craftsmanship and did not care about any other issues.
Master Cui then looked at Su Mo and said, “Master Su, it’s my fault! I didn’t know your identity! Please show mercy and forgive me!”
Master Cui had just realized something. It was Su Mo that would determine if he lived or died!
But Su Mo was speechless. He had not intended to kill Master Cui. He was just bluffing.
He did not expect for Master Cui, an Upper King Craftsman, to be so soft!
Su Mo also wanted to test Elder Hu by saying that.
It now seemed that Elder Hu was a ruthless person that could kill his man to gain benefits.
Su Mo thought that he should be more careful with Elder Hu.
However, he also knew that as long as he could benefit Elder Hu, he would be respected and treated well.
Elder Hu looked at Su Mo and said, “Brother Su Mo, Lil Cui has apologized. Shall we forgive him?”
He wanted to save his man’s life if possible.
Su Mo nodded and said, “Master Cui, for the sake of Elder Hu, I forgive you this time. Remember this!”
“Thank you so much, Master Su. I’ll never do that again!” Master Cui was greatly relieved.
“Elder Hu, let’s go!” Su Mo did not want to waste more time on Master Cui.
Elder Hu nodded and took Su Mo to a guest house.
It was cozy and roomy, and Su Mo would be staying here for the next couple of days.
