A trace of a smile appeared in Su Mo’s eyes. Sikong Yan must be interested since he had asked that.
Moreover, Su Mo’s wording didn’t sound insulting as he wanted Sikong Yan to be loyal to the Firmament Palace but to not him.
Although it essentially meant the same thing, the former would sound nicer and not humiliating.
Sikong Yan heard Su Mo and fell silent. He cycled through several different expressions as different thoughts flashed through his mind.
Su Mo didn’t utter another sound but waited patiently for Sikong Yan to decide. He believed that Sikong Yan would not reject such a good opportunity.
Moments later, Sikong Yan gritted his teeth and said in deep voice, “If I do get the imperial legacy, I will be loyal to Firmament Palace!”
“Good!” Su Mo was delighted upon hearing that. It had finally worked out.
“But…” Sikong Yan spoke again, “Everything has to wait until I get the Imperial Legacy, or else there will be no agreement!”
Sikong Yan was not stupid at all, and he could not possibly be loyal from now on. He would only commit to the Firmament Palace when he received the Legacy.
In fact, if it wasn’t because of the revenge, he would not make that promise to Su Mo.
“Of course!” Su Mo nodded and said with a smile, “I will take you to the Firmament Palace for the Legacy right after we leave the Waste Domain.”
Sikong Yan nodded expressionlessly but was delighted inside. He would be free from restrictions after he got the Legacy.
Loyalty to the Firmament Palace? It would be no more than a word. Even if he claimed that he would be loyal but not do anything for the sect after that, Su Mo could do nothing about it!
Su Mo was relieved after resolving Sikong Yan’s matter. The Firescorching Palace finally had a descendant!
However, there were still seven more descendants to seek.
Then Su Mo turned to look at the three doors and asked Sikong Yan, “Where do these three doors lead to?”
“I’m not sure!” Sikong Yan shook his head.
Su Mo sighed silently and stepped forward to carefully examine the three doors.
The three doors were different in appearance. The first one had bright white light inside. The second one was totally dark inside. And the third one was ordinary with neither dazzling light nor darkness.
However, one could not tell the condition inside all three doors. Su Mo released his spiritual consciousness into the doors, but it instantly bounced back.
Sweeping his eyes across the three entry doors, Su Mo looked up to see a large caligraphy character on the top of each door. It was Heaven, Earth, and Human respectively.
“What’s that suppose to mean?” Su Mo thought to himself.
“These are the Heaven Gate, Earth Gate, and Human Gate, all of which are said to be dangerous!” Sikong Yan said. He had already asked around for information before coming to the Waste Domain.
For example, these three gates all contained enormous formations and were thus very dangerous.
Sikong Yan continued, “According to the marks left on the entrance, most of the people before us entered the Heaven Gate, a small portion went into the Human Gate, and barely anyone chose the Earth Gate.”
Then, he strode towards the Heaven Gate, “Alright, I’m leaving. You take care!”
After finishing his sentence, Sikong Yan entered the Heaven Gate and disappeared.
Although Sikong Yan was about to receive the Legacy from Su Mo, he was already here and would not return without first exploring this place.
He was not worried about Su Mo’s safety either as he knew Su Mo was much stronger than him and would not perish easily.
Su Mo was left speechless seeing Sikong Yan disappearing into the Heaven Gate as he did not expect Sikong Yan to act alone without him.
Su Mo shook his head helplessly and then started to check out the three gates.
Most people went into the Heaven Gate and Human Gate, so even if there were treasures inside, there wouldn’t be much left.
However, there would be a bigger chance that Earth Gate still had treasures in it as people rarely entered it. Of course, the Earth Gate must be more dangerous, or else, the others would have picked it.
Su Mo was confused now as he didn’t know anything about the three gates and thus did not know which one to enter.
After pondering a moment, Su Mo gritted his teeth and picked the Earth Gate, thinking of the greater returns that came with great risks.
Although the Earth Gate could possibly be more dangerous, Su Mo thought that the chance of finding the treasures in the Sky-burn Mansion should be little larger in the Earth Gate.
Even if it was only a little more chance, it was worth the risk.
Without further hesitation, Su Mo made his decision and rushed straight into the dark Earth Gate.
After entering the Earth Gate, Su Mo felt as if there was mountain weighing on him and his body sank downwards uncontrollably.
The sound of a roaring, strong wind rang in Su Mo’s ears as he kept sinking rapidly. It was as if he was falling into an endless abyss.
Su Mo was nervous now as he didn’t know what was to happen next!
An unknown length of time had passed. It could be an hour or 15 minutes when Su Mo finally landed.
Looking around, he found it was all dim and dark. There were dark black ground, dim sky, streams of spooky wind and howl.
“Cackle Cackle Cackle!”
A disturbing laughter rang suddenly, and several Devilish Creatures flew towards Su Mo quickly from nearby.
These Devilish Creatures were more than twenty feet high. They were green-faced, long-toothed, and had thick hair all over them. They looked extremely terrifying, as if they were evil ghosts from hell.
“Is this the hell?” Su Moexpression was grave. The scene was very much like the hell described in legends.
At this moment, a thought flashed through his mind and he couldn’t help thinking that if this was what it was like inside the Earth Gate, then what about the Heaven Gate and Human Gate?
Is heaven inside the Heaven Gate, hell inside the Earth Gate, and the human world in Human Gate?
If this was the case, Su Mo felt a little regretful. That was why so many people had chosen the Heaven Gate and Human Gate. There were huge differences!
Several green-faced and long-toothed malicious ghosts followed the cold wind and stopped in front of Su Mo, leaping at him.
Su Mo gave a cold battle cry. With that, the Sky-crushing Sword appeared in his hand and slashed immediately at the beasts.
Sword light flashed and the malicious ghosts did not even have a chance to scream before they were engulfed by sword light and were killed.
In thinking that he should get used to the environment soon, Su Mo flew forward after finishing off several other malicious ghosts.
However, he just flew for only a few thousand feet, when hundreds of other malicious ghosts appearing from all around him rushed toward Su Mo.
Those malicious ghosts were filled with Ghost Qi and possessed strong auras equivalent to Lv 9 True Darkness Realm martial artists.
“There’re so many of you!” Su Mo frowned when he saw them. However, he wasn’t afraid as it was impossible for these malicious ghosts to harm him.
“Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!”
The next moment, Su Mo struck again. The sword radiance in his hand flashed crazily and dense waves of sword Qi shot out in all directions.
After a round of attack, all the malicious ghosts were killed and vanished.
