Their identical questions caught them first by surprise before they burst into laughter.
“Brother Wenren, your strength is impressive!” Su Mo said to Wenren Tiandu with a fist-palm salute. “Frankly speaking, the reason why I’m so strong is not just because I’ve used a secret skill, but also because I’ve cultivated an incredibly powerful cultivation skill!”
Su Mo was smiling, but an idea had started to take root in his mind. This man had cultivated martial arts techniques of pure light property and would thus be a suitable descendant of Illuminious Palace candidate.
He might not possess a light property Spirit Build, but he was highly talented in various other aspects.
Based on Su Mo’s knowledge, Wenren Tiandu had also received his Legacy from Illuminious Palace where he was also a disciple.
The only concern he had was that he did not have an understanding of this man’s moral character since they were not well-acquainted.
However, based on their interactions so far, he had developed a good impression of Wenren Tiandu.
Wenren Tiandu fell silent at Su Mo’s words. Su Mo’s cultivation skill might be powerful, but so was his.
His cultivation skill was of Lower Imperial-level. This was part of the reason why he was so powerful.
He guessed that Su Mo’s cultivation skill was likely an Upper Imperial-level skill. A medium Imperial-level skill would not have been able to give him such great strength.
After a while, Wenren Tiandu said solemnly, “The reason why I’m so powerful is because I have cultivated fifteen Spiritual Spirals!”
Wenren Tiandu decided to tell Su Mo the true secret behind his incredible strength since Su Mo was also a fellow Archean martial practice cultivator. Therefore, he did not mind telling Su Mo the truth.
“What? Fifteen Spiritual Spirals?” exclaimed Su Mo, his eyes widening in disbelief.
“Brother Wenren, you have got to be kidding me! Have you really cultivated fifteen Spiritual Spirals?” he asked in surprise.
Su Mo was astonished. “Wasn’t he told that Wenren Tiandu had cultivated seven Spiritual Spirals? How did he have fifteen now?”
A martial artist with fifteen Spiritual Spirals just seemed too incredible to be true!
“This is the truth, of course!” Wenren Tiandu said with a slight shake of his head.
Su Mo was unable to come to terms with this fact. Wenren Tiandu’s extraordinary strength all made sense to him now that he knew of his fifteen Spiritual Spirals.
This man must be pretty ambitious to have even cultivated fifteen Spiritual Spirals!
While these thoughts were running through his head, Su Mo was suddenly overcome with fatigue as the effects of his Three Secret Techniques wore off.
Fatigue continued to wash over Su Mo like a rushing river.
He felt the after-effects of his Three Secret Techniques even more keenly than ever.
“Brother Wenren, shall we continue our conversation on the ground?” Su Mo said with a forced smile as he tried to reign in his fatigue.
“Very well.” Wenren Tiandu nodded.
Then, they descended onto the crimson earth.
Su Mo sat cross-legged as soon as he landed. Fortunately, they were on the first level. If they were on the second level, he was afraid he would not even be able to withstand the fire property strength which filled the entire area.
“Brother Su, are you okay?” Wenren Tiandu asked gravely. He knew that Su Mo must be consumed by the after-effects of his secret technique.
“I’m fine!” Su Mo said with a smile. Even so, he did not let down his guard in front of Wenren Tiandu and secretly continued to be wary of him.
This was a good opportunity to test Wenren Tiandu’s moral character. Wenren Tiandu was now aware that he possessed a spatial treasure and that he was currently very feeble.
If Weren Tiandu bore him any ill-will, he would definitely choose this moment to attack.
Su Mo was not too worried either. He might be very weak at the moment, but it still would not be easy for Wenren Tiandu to defeat him!
Firstly, despite his weakness, he could merge the four properties within him together so his strength would still be almost on par with Wenren Tiandu. Secondly, he could escape into his Divine Map at any moment.
Moreover, since that elderly Fire God was an item spirit of Sky-burn Tower, he would definitely be aware of all the happenings within the tower.
Su Mo had come to a decision. If Wenren Tiandu lived up to his expectations, he would appoint him as the descendant of Illuminious Palace.
Wenren Tiandu carefully gave Su Mo a once-over, then nodded and sat cross-legged in front of him.
“Brother Su, I’m equally impressed by your strength. If I’m not wrong, you’re probably not even twenty years of age!” Wenren Tiandu said.
Wenren Tiandu was also impressed with Su Mo’s strength. Su Mo’s strength coupled with his young age was not something other so-called geniuses would be able to emulate.
“Brother Wenren, you flatter me!” Su Mo said with a slight shake of his head.
“When I was at East Continent, I heard that you had cultivated seven Spiritual Spirals. How has it turned into fifteen now?” he asked.
Su Mo finally verbalized what he had been wondering. He was both surprised and shocked that Wenren Tiandu had cultivated so many Spiritual Spirals despite knowing that it would be even more difficult to break through if one possessed this many Spiritual Spirals. Was this man intending to be stuck at Lv 9 True Darkness Realm forever?
“That was indeed true then. I’ve cultivated a few more Spiritual Spirals in recent years!” Wenren Tiandu said with a sigh.
“Brother Wenren, please pardon my directness. You have already been stuck at Peak Lv 9 True Darkness Realm for so long. Now that you have cultivated so many Spiritual Spirals, it would even more difficult for you to break through to Martial King Realm, right?” Su Mo asked.
“Brother Su, the truth is, I have already refined fourteen of my Spiritual Spirals into divine elixirs. I’ve only got one more to go!” Wenren Tiandu declared confidently.
“Once the final Spiritual Spiral has been refined into a Divine Elixir, I would be able to officially attain Martial King Realm. However, I’ve heard that the Martial King Ordeal one has to go through is rather terrifying so I don’t think I’m fully prepared for that yet!” he slowly explained.
Wenren Tiandu was not lying. If not for the fact that he was worried about the Martial King Ordeal, he would have attained Martial King Realm a long time ago. There would not have been a need to dither for a few years!
He had come to the Waste Domain in hopes of obtaining a few powerful treasures that would help him tide past the Martial King Ordeal.
Su Monodded to himself. It turned out that this man was already at the final step. If he managed to successfully attain Martial King Realm, he would become even more powerful.
“Brother Wenren, are you a disciple of the Firmament Palace?” Su Mo suddenly asked.
Wenren Tiandu was surprised, but then he nodded and said, “Indeed, I have obtained a Legacy from the Firmament Palace in the past!”
Wenren Tiandu did not deny the fact. There were just too many martial artists in East Continent that had visited Firmament Palace. Many of them had also obtained Legacies.
Quite a few people knew that he had obtained a Legacy from Illuminious Palace, so there was no need to hide.
Su Mo nodded and carefully chose the words he was about to say. He then looked straight at Wenren Tiandu and said, “Brother Wenren, I truly admire your strength and you have earned my respect with your uprightness. I would like to work with you to fulfill my grand ambition. I’m wondering if you would be interested?”
Su Mo was extending an official invitation to Wenren Tiandu. They had not spent a lot of time in each other’s company but he trusted his judgment. This man had lived up to his expectations and was of good temperament. He would be extremely suited to be the descendant of Illuminious Palace.
