Warrior's Promise - Chapter 48
Courtyard No . 730 . was where Su Mo chose to live, and now that no one else had chosen this place, he was alone .
The courtyard had three rooms and Su Mo carelessly chose the one on the right .
Entering the room, he found it to be very shabby with a small area of around 10 square meters . It was only equipped with one wooden bed, a desk, and a chair .
As expected, a brochure was placed on the desk, which Su Mo read carefully .
The first several pages of it gave a detailed description of Gale Island .
As one of the four sects in Skymoon Country, Gale Island had a long history of 800 years .
At present, nearly 20,000 people were on the island, including elders, deacons, and disciples .
According to their cultivation, the disciples were classified into several levels, namely handyman disciples, outer disciples, inner disciples, as well as core disciples .
Besides them, elders were also divided into outer elders and inner elders .
Gale Island had also dozens of strict rules .
The brochure also documented hundreds of common demonic beasts and Spiritual Herbs, which really widened his horizons .
In the last pages, the brochure explained about the geographical landscape of Firmament and Continent .
Firmament and Continent was divided into five continents, namely East Continent, South Continent, West Continent, North Continent, and Central Continent . Additionally, it had 108 domains .
Skymoon Country was located in Hong Domain, East Continent and was one of the 100 countries .
After he finished reading, Su Mo felt quite shocked and could not calm down .
This world was much bigger than he thought . But as vast as Skymoon Country was, it was still small in Firmament and Continent . Thus, compared to the entire continent, it was like a drop in the bucket .
Even if a martial artist was in the Spiritual Martial Realm, he could not step out of East Continent in his entire life, let alone martial artists in the Qi Cultivation Realm .
Moreover, East Continent was just one of the five continents .
Seeing Central Continent, Su Mo could not help thinking of Xi'er .
"How is she doing?"
"Has she led a happy life since she went back?"
After a while, Su Mo closed the brochure and helplessly sighed . He sat cross-legged and was ready to cultivate .
"The clock is ticking and time flies!"
At this moment, noises resounded in the courtyard . Su Mo felt a little confused and strode out of the room .
He found that two young men were talking to each other in the courtyard .
One was good-looking in a brocade robe while the other was wrapped in an animal hide . He was tall and sturdy and had dark skin .
"Tell you what, as long as you follow me, I'm sure you'll have a comfortable life here," said the young man in the brocade robe to the dark-skinned young man .
"Brother Li Feng, all I want is to work hard in cultivating and become an expert . Then, after returning to my village, I can protect it and the villagers," replied the dark-skinned young man with a naive smile on his face .
"Haha! Under my protection, you'll become an expert much easier!"
The young man in the brocade robe confidently patted himself on his chest .
Hearing them talking, Su Mo speechlessly smiled . "These two people should be the new handyman disciples . The young man in the brocade robe was just recruited, but he wanted to rope in the dark-skinned youth . "
In Gale Island, the handyman disciples were also affiliated with the outer gate, thus, they lived together with the outer disciples . However, due to their lower cultivations, they had to do some daily chores .
Even if some people were not in the Spiritual Martial Realm, the recommendations could help them directly become outer disciples, such as Su Mo .
"Brother, good day!"
Just then, the dark-skinned youth noticed Su Mo and respectfully paid homage to him hurriedly .
Li Feng, who was in the brocade robe, glimpsed Su Mo, squinted his eyes, and asked, "Are you also a new disciple?"
"Yeah!" Su Mo nodded his head with a smile .
"You're an outer disciple directly because of a recommendation!" Li Feng commented again, then confidently said with a smile, "I'm a handyman disciple, but my talent is as high as yours . "
"Is that so?"
Su Mo smiled and noncommittally shrugged .
There were many geniuses among all the handyman disciples . After all, the Purple Gold Pavilion could not discover all of the geniuses of Skymoon Country and it only recommended a few geniuses .
"Humpf! You'll see . I'll become world-renowned in Skymoon Country in several years," said Li Feng coldly upon seeing Su Mo's expression, then strode into the central room .
Su Mo still remained speechless and thought, "This guy is overconfident! He brags that he'll be world-renowned just after he's been recruited . "
He was arrogant, however, he was unlike Yan Qi and other people, who felt proud of themselves but looked down on others .
"Brother, my name is Niu Xiaohu . We can look after each other," said the dark-skinned young man to Su Mo with a bow .
"I'm Su Mo . " He nodded to him .
"Brother Su Mo, since you can be an outer disciple directly, you must be a genius . "
Niu Xiaohu innocently smiled, then scratched his head and said, "I'm a little stupid . If Brother Su Mo is free in the future, I hope you can give me some instructions . "
Seeing his clean, simple, and sincere eyes, Su Mo could not help befriending him, thus, he chatted with him .
Niu Xiaohu was born into a poor family in the north of Skymoon Country . His ancestors were hunters and so was he . He had a Martial Soul of the Rank 5 Human Class, which had been the highest one in his village for hundreds of years .
Hence, he came here to attend the entrance examination . Both of his parents and the entire village laid great expectations on him .
"Xiaohu, as long as you're resolute and have a strong heart, you'll be a powerful man sooner or later . "
In the end, Su Mo patted him on his shoulder and encouraged him .
"Yeah!" Niu Xiaohu profoundly nodded .
Immediately, Su Mo went back to his room and cultivated cross-legged .
The circling Spiritual Qi surrounded him . The Spiritual Qi in Gale Island was 10 times richer than they were in Sunnywood City . As a result, it was much easier for him to cultivate than it was before .
Unfortunately, Su Mo was standing at the bottleneck of his cultivation, so he would not make a breakthrough within the next few days .
Time flew by . The next morning, Su Mo heard someone knocking on his door .
"Brother Su Mo!"
Just then, Niu Xiaohu's voice resounded .
"Xiaohu, what's up?" asked Su Mo after he opened the door .
"Brother, just now the deacon asked us to take our jade identification badges," said Niu Xiaohu .
"Oh, let's go now . " Su Mo nodded and walked out with Niu Xiaohu .
"Yeah, almost forget Brother Li Feng!"
After Niu Xiaohu informed Li Feng, the three of them walked toward the Sect Affairs Hall of the outer gate .
The mountainous road was crowded .
Soon, they came to Sect Affairs Hall and lined up to receive the jade identification badges .
The jade identification badges were green jade badges the size of a palm . They were very magical . If someone injected Genuine Qi into it, his identification information would appear on it .
Su Mo gently injected a trace of Genuine Qi into it, then some characters instantly appeared on it .
Name: Su Mo .
Identity: Outer Disciple .
Contribution points: zero .
Based on the brochure, contribution points were the contributions a disciple made to the sect . Contribution points were precious, for they could be used to exchange for various kinds of resources .
After receiving the jade badges, they went to the outer square .
The outer square was very big . Many disciples were practicing martial arts techniques or fighting with each other, so it was quite noisy .
"Many people are there . Brother Su Mo and Li Feng, let's go and have a look . "
Dozens of people were gathering at the edge of the square . They had also gone there out of curiosity .
A two-meter-high, black stele was situated there, and it had many white crystals that were inscribed around it .
Now, a young man in a yellow robe was attacking the stele . After a punch, it stayed motionless, but its crystals became luminous .
"What is it?" Su Mo asked Li Feng and Niu Xiaohu .
Niu Xiaohu shook his head, which indicated that he did not know .
"This is a stele for the ATK test, which is used to detect a martial artist's attack force . "
Apparently, Li Feng was knowledgeable . After a smile, he provokingly looked at Su Mo and said, "Let's compare and figure out who has a stronger attack force . "
