“En, this mastiff ghost beast is really ferocious, but it’s only at the Real Pellet State intermediate stage. Before I came to Evil Ghost Way, I spent a lot of money to buy a few treasures to restrain ghost creatures. After blasting them all with the help of my spiritual pet, I was barely able to kill this ghost beast by luck.” Liu Ming said with laughter.
Although the hunchbacked old man and the handsome young man were still in disbelief, after listening to Liu Ming’s explanation, the terrified look on their faces disappeared.
“Haha, in any case, from this yin core, the ghost creature that Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu can kill alone is indeed very powerful. The title of the first disciple of the inner sect is indeed well deserved, and Min admires it! “The cultivator surnamed Min said with laughter.
The hunchbacked old man and the handsome young man even said a few words of admiration. If they were pretending before, they were completely convinced at this moment.
“You all have overpraised. Now that we have found this fortune bowl, let’s get out of here as soon as possible.” Liu Ming habitually said modestly, then he changed the topic.
“Yes, the yin qi here is too thick. Let’s go up first.” The cultivator surnamed Min glanced at the golden bowl in Liu Ming’s hand and nodded.
“This item is a treasure in the army, so it’s better to let Senior Fellow Apprentice Min keep it.”
Liu Ming threw the fortune bowl to the cultivator surnamed Min and said without hesitation.
The cultivator surnamed Min’s face changed, and he glanced deeply at Liu Ming. He kept the fortune bowl without denying it.
Without delay, they flew to the top and got out of this giant pit.
“Captain Min, Mr. Liu, you are back!” The young woman in a red dress and the muscular man who stayed outside hurriedly greeted them.
“En, this mission is finally completed!” The cultivator surnamed Min waved them with the golden fortune bowl in 1 hand.
“Great. We finally found the fortune bowl before the other 2 squads. I didn’t expect that the seven orifices ghost didn’t betray us.” The young woman in a red dress said with a blush of excitement on her face.
The burly man with a bow also looked happy.
The reward for this mission was quite valuable. In addition to the high sect contribution points, there were also some other precious things such as ghost and beast yin cores. Otherwise, they wouldn’t scramble for this mission.
“It’s all thanks to Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu. He single-handedly killed a mastiff ghost beast of the Real Pellet State intermediate stage below. After returning, I will truthfully report this to the Master’s Junior and Master’s Senior.” The cultivator surnamed Min assured while patting his chest.
“Then many thanks to Senior Fellow Apprentice Min.” Liu Ming smiled.
He really needed to make a name for himself in the Golden Light City at the moment, which would help him completely integrate into the Golden Light Army.
The young woman and the muscular man were also taken aback when they heard the words Real Pellet State intermediate stage.
To be able to kill such a powerful ghost creature alone in such a short period of time, even a few Real Pellet State elders in Golden Light City couldn’t easily do it.
“Okay, although the mission has been completed, we still can’t be careless. Immediately return to Golden Light City. We will discuss other things after leaving here.” The cultivator surnamed Min quickly calmed down, and he said in a deep voice.
Several others also nodded.
“By the way, Senior Fellow Apprentice Min, what about the other 2 squads? Are we going to inform them that we have found the fortune bowl?” Liu Ming said after a little thought.
“I’ve just informed them with the sound transmission disk array. Okay, let’s go now.” The cultivator surnamed Min said while releasing a gray sword light to carry him into the direction of the Golden Light City.
Liu Ming and the others hurriedly followed him.
Soon the escape lights of several people turned into a few spots of light and disappeared in mid-air.
Just after the few of them left, a figure faded out of the tumbling dense yin qi.
As the gray yin qi flowed, a green-skinned ghost with a big head could be vaguely seen. It was a seven orifices ghost!
After the red eyeball on the top of his head rolled, it smirked slightly. Then, it flew close to the ground silently while following in the direction they went.
More than half an hour later, over the endless barren jungle, Liu Ming and the others were flying to the north.
The cultivator surnamed Min on the flying sword was flying in front. The other 4 were in the middle.
As for Liu Ming, he was at the back of the squad with an indifferent face.
“I didn’t expect this mission to go so smoothly. After receiving the reward, I have to apply to the upper level for a period of retreat. In recent days, I always feel that the bottleneck seems to have loosened a little.” The burly man with a bow said with a hearty voice, and his face looked very proud.
“Then I should congratulate Brother Xiao first! If you can break through the bottleneck, you have to accompany me to go to the Soul Smoke Valley to pick some yin xi grass!” The young woman in a red dress giggled after hearing this.
“Lady San, we are already part of the family, so why be so polite!” The burly man replied in a good mood after hearing the words.
The handsome young man behind the 2 was looking at them with a smile while fanning the paper fan, but the hunchbacked old man beside him seemed to be in no mood. He glanced around with a slight frown.
“Mr. Qiu, what’s wrong?” Suddenly, the voice of the cultivator surnamed Min, who was flying in the front, came.
“Captain Min, I don’t know if I’m having an illusion. I always feel that something is wrong. We had just past through the winding stream below not long ago.” The hunchbacked old man looked around again before saying in ventriloquism.
After he said this, both the handsome young man beside him and the burly man who had been chatting happily were all startled and looked down.
“I saw this heart-shaped forest not long ago, and I just mentioned it to Lady San.” The burly man with a bow said in surprise when he saw it.
“What’s going on? It shouldn’t be such a coincidence, right?” The young woman in a red dress blushed slightly after hearing that, but she immediately said with a serious expression.
“I also feel that the surrounding yin qi seems to be a little abnormal.” The handsome young man said with a frown after closing the paper fan with a “pop“.
“You’re all right. I think we may have fallen into the Ghost Wall Array.” The cultivator surnamed Min made a sword gesture, stopped, looked back and said slowly.
“Ghost Wall Array!”
They stopped one after another. All of them looked shocked.
Speaking of this Ghost Wall Array, Liu Ming had carefully studied it in the jade slip given by the sect before, but he didn’t expect to encounter it on his first mission.
This array was a kind of ghost array commonly used by the ghost army in Evil Ghost Way to trap the enemies. It gathered a large amount of yin qi released by many ghost creatures and shrouded a large area in it. It could disrupt the vision and Divine Thought of those who were trapped. Those who were trapped would often be contained in this array until death. The array eye was often protected by a Real Pellet State ghost captain.
Liu Ming quickly went through all the information related to this array in his mind. After squinting his eyes, a black light flashed in his pupils. He stared at a nearby mountain range of varying heights.
At this time, a thick gray mist had condensed over the mountains, and it was impossible to see anything inside.
After looking around, he found that the dense mist had already condensed into an incomparably huge ring, trapping them all from a far distance. Under careful observation, the ring was still slowly shrinking toward the middle.
Combined with the descriptions of the burly man with a bow, this scene was exactly the same as the Ghost Wall Array described in the jade slip.
The hunchbacked old man and others either immediately made gestures or took out their spiritual weapon. They were in a stance to combat at any moment.
At this moment, there was a loud noise all around.
In the thick mist, gray light beams rose into the sky one after another, then hundreds of gray spots appeared gradually. They were ghost warriors that wore bronze armor and held a black machete.
The faces of these ghost warriors were blurred. There were 2 yellow lights in their eyes. They stood in a neat formation as if they were well-trained. Each of them was about 24 meters away from each other. The gray yin qi released from them connected to the ring that formed the Ghost Wall Array.
In addition, beside each warrior were 1 and 2 brown long-haired ghost dogs. They had fierce eyes and sharp fangs in their mouths.
The ghost warrior at the front was black. Its body was larger, which was about 9 meters tall. It wore a gray heavy armor. There were no eyes and nose on its face, but a pair of fist-sized green ghost eyes were spinning quickly on its chest. It exuded a strong yin qi, almost approaching the Real Pellet State later stage.
It was a high rank ghost captain!
As the ghost captain appeared, it pointed at Liu Ming and the others.
In the next moment, all the ghost warriors looked over with a bright yellow light and spurted gray mist into the space.
Immediately afterward, a rumble sounded!
The shrinking speed of the giant yin qi ring that trapped everyone suddenly increased sharply. The scenery below was already blurred, and the sky also became gray and misty.
Liu Ming and the others instantly felt the yin wind blowing around them. The tumbling mist also made them lose sight of each other.
“No, they are channeling the array now. If we discover earlier, we can still find a way to dodge it, but we can only break through by force now.”
