Qian Xunyue could not stop crying.
Su Mo had died in order to save her!
Was he really willing to sacrifice his life for her?
Was her life so important to Su Mo that he could give everything up for it?
Was love really more than just mere desires, and even more valuable than one’s life?
Qian Xunyue was overwhelmed with complicated emotions as she gazed at the lava and thought of Su Mo.
She thought that she would feel much better if Su Mo died. However, she felt extremely upset at the moment, as if she was suffocating due to a huge rock crushing her heart!
After a short while, Qian Xunyue took a deep breath and sighed inwardly.
Now that Su Mo was dead, she could not bring him back to life even if she continued to stay here. In fact, that would only put her own life in danger.
Qian Xunyue glanced at the lava for a final time before she left. She needed to find a way to escape this place because she was severely injured.
Meanwhile, Su Mo had given up and stopped struggling, because it would not make a difference.
This unknown existence was too powerful for him.
The enormous hand of lava continued to drag him deeper.
The sea of lava was extremely deep. After more than a dozen breaths, Su Mo had yet to reach the bottom even though he had already descended more than 10,000 kilometers.
“What’s going on?’ Su Mo was confused, not by the deepness of the sea of lava, but because the unknown existence was dragging him deeper and deeper instead of simply killing him.
Su Mo’s body kept sinking and the temperature of the lava around him reached a terrifying degree.
However, the lava could not hurt Su Mo because his strength had rocketed after using the Three Secret Techniques.
After 15 minutes and god knows how many thousand kilometers, Su Mo finally reached the bottom.
The enormous hand let go of Su Mo and he finally landed on the ground.
Su Mo looked around and found himself in a spacious underground region. It was bright as day and crimson from the reflection of the lava.
He looked up and saw the sea of lava tumbling, but there seemed to be an invisible force which prevented it from flowing down.
The place was quiet and there was no one around, but Su Mo had his heart in his throat.
Why did the unknown existence bring him here instead of killing him?
While Su Mo was engrossed in his thoughts, a wave of fire descended in front of him and turned into a middle-aged man.
This man was over six meters tall and extremely rustic. His body was red and covered in fire, so he looked just like a burning man.
Su Mo was alarmed by his appearance and he quickly pulled back several thousand meters, putting distance between himself and the man.
“Tell me, where did you learn your Five-elements martial arts technique from?” The middle-aged man’s voice was deep and irrefutable.
“Senior, who are you?” Su Mo clasped his fists and asked respectfully instead of answering the question.
At the mean time, he quickly considered the possibility that the man kept him alive because of his martial arts techniques.
Since his Holy Son token could unlock the defensive formation at the mansion, did that mean this place was actually related to Firmament Palace?
It seemed like he could still get out alive!
“Answer my question!”
The middle-aged man continued emotionlessly, “If your answer is not satisfactory, I’ll definitely kill you!”
Hearing that, Su Mo gritted his teeth and replied, “I learned it from Firmament Palace!”
Su Mo did not lie becaue it was obvious that the man knew about his Grand Chaos Five Elements Skill.
The man’s eyes lit up when he heard Su Mo, and he asked again, “Firmament Palace would never teach an outsider its martial arts technique. How are you related to Firmament Palace?
The middle-aged man sounded like he knew Su Mo’s cultivation skill very well.
After a moment of consideration, Su Mo took out his Firmament Palace’s Holy Son token.
“Of course I could cultivate Firmament Palace’s martial arts technique, I’m the Holy Son!” Su Mo replied in a deep voice.
Su Mo was taking a gamble. Since the Holy Son token could unlock the defensive formation at the mansion, which had ‘Firescorching’ written on its gate, there was a good chance that this place was related to Firescorching Palace.
Hence, he took out the Holy Son token directly to identify himself.
If this place was really related to Firescorching Palace, he could protect his life by revealing his identity.
“What?” The middle-aged man burst into flames when he heard Su Mo.
He snatched Su Mo’s Holy Son token away without any hesitation.
Su Mo did not stop him not just because he saw it coming, but also because he was not capable of stopping him.
The middle-aged man scrutinized Su Mo’s token carefully.
Although he was expressionless, he actually shocked that this was the real Holy Son token of Firmament Palace.
“Senior, is this place related to Firmament Palace?’ Su Mo secretly observed the middle-aged man’s expression and asked carefully.
The man stood motionlessly and did not utter a word. After a dozen breaths, he finally looked at Su Mo.
“This place is Firescorching Palace’s Sky-burn Tower!” The middle-aged man replied in a deep tone.
“I knew it!” Su Mo’s eyes lit up when he heard that. “This place is part of Firescorching Palace after all!”
However, Su Mo was puzzled because he knew that Firescorching Palace was within Firmament Palace. How could it be in the Waste Domain in that case?
“What’s your name?” The middle-aged man softened his expression and asked.
The middle-aged man nodded and said after a short pause, “I’ll bring you to the top floor to see Lord Fire. He will decide everything!”
Just as the middle-aged man said that, he wrapped Su Mo within a blanket of fire and flew into the air at lightning speed.
“Fire Lord?” Su Mo was puzzled to hear that. Was there someone even more powerful than this middle-aged man in this place?
“That’s it!” Su Mo suddenly remembered that he was in the gigantic tower currently, and the tower had nine floors in total. It seemed like each floor was an individual world.
It seemed like Fire Lord resided on the top floor.
The middle-aged man was extremely fast. He turned into a fire ball completely and travelled through the lava with Su Mo.
The two of them soon exited the sea of lava.
Another door appeared after a short while, and the man brought Su Mo through the door.
Then, they arrived at a hotter world, which was the third floor of the Sky-burn Tower.
