WIthin the Divine Map’s Space, Su Mo and Hong Qingxuan sat across each other in the stone hut.
“Brother Su Mo, what’s the matter?” Hong Qingxuan looked curiously at Su Mo as she was perplexed at why he looked so serious.
Su Mo looked grave as he was deep in thought. He was going to tell Hong Qingxuan about his involvement with Firmament Palace.
She was trustworthy and would be a great help to him.
After he pieced his words together, he said seriously, “Qingxuan, do you remember Firmament Palace?”
The question caught Hong Qingxuan by surprise, and she paused for a while before replying with a smile, “Of course, I even received a Legacy from Evergreen Palace, one of the nine palaces within Firmament Palace, and was accepted as a disciple of Evergreen Palace!”
Su Mo nodded and continued, “I know, for I received a Legacy as well.”
Hong Qingxuan’s eyes brightened at this, but she was not too surprised.
She always suspected that Su Mo had received some sort of Legacy since his results at the Firmament Palace had surpassed everyone present and was taken away by the puppet soon after.
Based on his results back then, there was no way he would have failed to meet Firmament Palace’s requirements.
Furthermore, his combat strength had increased so significantly that it was obvious he had received a powerful Legacy.
Su Mo continued, “The Legacy I got was to inherit the entire Firmament Palace, and be its master.”
“Be the Master of Firmament Palace?” repeated Hong Qingxuan as her eyes widened in shock.
“Indeed, Master of Firmamment Palace!” Su Mo nodded seriously, and continued. “My mission right now is to appoint the descendants of the nine palaces.”
“Qingxuan, since you have received a Legacy from Evergreen Palace and have incredible talent, I would like to appoint you as the descendant of Evergreen Palace!” Su Mo stared intently at her.
“Descendant of Evergreen Palace?” Hong Qingxuan’s mind was completely blank. She had not expected Su Mo to have such a big secret.
“That’s right. Once I have the strength of a Martial King, I will bring you back to Firmament Palace to receive the true Legacy of Evergreen Palace’s Palace Master,” said Su Mo.
Hong Qingxuan may be a disciple of Evergreen Palace, but the Legacy she received was still only an average Martial Emperor skill, which was still not as powerful as what she could receive as Palace Master.
All the past Palace Masters of Evergreen Palace were also crowned as Emperor Evergreen. They were only considered to have received the ultimate Legacy of Evergreen Palace if they received the Legacy of Emperor Evergreen.
“I… Brother Su Mo, do you really think I can do this?” Hong Qingxuan asked, her face flushed, as she grew more excited at his words.
“Of course, you will be the descendant of Evergreen Palace from this day on!” Su Mo laughed and continued. “I have created a sect known as Firmament Sect in preparation for the revival of Firmament Palace.”
“Where is this Firmament Sect?” Hong Qingxuan asked, puzzled.
“In Hong Domain. It may still be very weak, but it won’t take long for it to grow mightier!”
“Firmament Palace will once again reign supreme when Firmament Sect becomes mighty enough.” Su Mo said, his face full of hope.
Su Mo’s goal was to revitalize Firmament Palace, and for it to regain its peak standing within Firmament and Continent.
Earth Palace Master once said that a major calamity will befall Firmament and Continent, and Firmament Palace must experience a resurgence. Su Mo may not understand what kind of calamity was about to befall them, but believed that his words rang true, and preparations had to be made for it.
Hong Qingxuan looked sombre, and was biting her lips while in thought.
“Brother Su Mo, I will support you to the best of my abilities, and help you realize your goal!” Hong Qingxuan declared solemnly. She was excited to know that she could be of help to Su Mo.
“Very well. Thanks, Qingxuan!” Su Mo smiled.
“Brother Su Mo, there is no need for pleasantries. This is also an opportunity for me!” Hong Qingxuan brushed her hair away from her forehead and smiled sweetly.
This was indeed a rare opportunity for her!
Su Mo nodded. Now that Qingxuan was on board, she would be of great help whether it was cultivating the power of wood property or searching for other descendants.
“Qingxuan, please help me keep a lookout for other suitable descendants of the Eight Palaces.” Su Mo continued, “At present, I need the descendants of Brightgold Palace, Watermoon Palace, Firescorching Palace, and Earth Palace. Descendants for the other palaces can wait.”
Su Mo planned to first appoint the descendants of the Five Elemental Palaces, since they would be able to support his cultivation of the Grand Chaos Five Elements Skill. There was no urgency to search for descendants of the remaining four palaces.
“What qualifications do they need to have?” Hong Qingxuan asked.
Su Mo contemplated for a moment before he answered, “They would need to have incredible talent, and also need to display strong corresponding property talent. For example, you possess a high wood property talent.”
Hong Qingxuan mulled over this for a while, then her lips curled into a smile and she said, “Brother Su Mo, I would like to recommend someone who would be most suited to be the descendant of Watermoon Palace!”
Su Mo’s eyes lit up as he asked, “Oh? Who would that be?”
“My Master, Fairy of the Ninth Heaven.” Qingxuan replied sweetly.
Su Mo was struck dumb, and his face froze.
“She is not only incredibly talented at cultivating, but also has extraordinary water property talent, and the martial arts technique she cultivates is of water property. She would be a perfect choice for the Watermoon Palace.” she continued.
“Brother Su Mo, what do you think? Is she suitable for you?” Qingxuan looked at Su Mo expectantly.
Since she was on such good terms with Qian Xunyue, she would naturally wish to secure this opportunity for her master.
“Hmm… let’s wait and see! As of now, I can’t really tell.” Su Mo laughed awkwardly.
Make that woman the descendant of Watermoon Palace? This must be a joke!
Su Mo mentally shook his head. Other than being extremely beautiful, that woman had no other merits!
Most importantly, he did not have a shred of affection toward her. She was too aloof, and lacked empathy!
“By the way, please do not mention any of this to your master. We will give this matter further thought at a later date!” warned Su Mo.
That woman must not catch wind of this.
“Alright!” Hong Qingxuan nodded. Since Su Mo said this must wait for further discussion, she could not press further.
Then, Su Mo and Hong Qingxuan started making plans for Firmament Palace’s future.
Thereafter, he looked at her with an appraising eye and said, “Qingxuan, have you got Spiritual Stones? I will help you reach the True Darkness Realm!”
Hong Qingxuan was already at Peak Lv 9 Enlightenment Realm, so with Su Mo’s help and enough Spiritual Stones, she could easily break through to True Darkness Realm.
“Yes, I have quite a lot!” she said while beaming.
She had wanted to seek Su Mo’s help in her cultivation, but found it difficult to ask since he did not mention it.
Hong Qingxuan waved her hands, and with a white flash of light, countless Spiritual Stones appeared in the stone room.
“Ha Ha! Let me lend you a hand!” Su Mo laughed and released his Devouring Martial Soul.
Dense Spiritual Qi filled the room, and Hong Qingxuan was soon immersed in her cultivation.
