Just when they rushed to the hole with unimpeded momentum, a change happened again!
A brown and black light flashed, then a dozen brown ghost dogs blocked in front of him.
Immediately afterward, the dense black blade lights swept from all directions.
Seeing this, Liu Ming immediately patted the soul-recovering back. A golden light rolled out and turned into a 3 meters scorpion.
As soon as the scorpion appeared, the golden cockscomb pattern on its head suddenly flourished. A thick golden light beam swept away the surrounding gray mist. The cold air also became warm in an instant.
The dozen ghost dogs dodged in fear after being swept by the golden light. They bared their fangs and groaned, but they didn’t dare to get close anymore.
The overwhelming black blade lights were also resisted by the rest.
Right at this moment, whistling sounds came. Near the 9 meters hole, 8 gray shadows flashed out. They were Crystallization Period ghost lieutenants that blocked their way.
These ghost lieutenants didn’t intend to attack them, but they attempted to spray gray ghost mist to trap Liu Ming and the others.
“Everyone, life and death are at stake here, keep up!” Seeing this, Liu Ming shouted and stretched his arms forward.
A dragon roar resounded through the sky!
5 60 meters long black mist dragons rushed from behind Liu Ming, they merged into a 120 meters long black dragon and carried Xie’er forward.
Just as the black mist dragon reached the border, it shot a golden light from its mouth; it was Xie’er.
The three crown golden chicken pattern on Bone Scorpion’s forehead flickered continuously, and a large golden light swept forward.
The dozen ghost lieutenants, that were originally blocking the hole, looked fearful when the golden light came, but they blocked with their scimitars without moving.
A muffled impact sounded.
When the golden light hit, the dozen ghost lieutenants collapsed one after another together with their scimitars.
Where the golden light swept, the hole was enlarged by several times again.
A pair of silver wings emerged from behind Liu Ming with a flash. With a flap, he turned into a silver escape light that charged through the hole.
Bone Scorpion also followed closely in a golden light.
Seeing this, the others were overjoyed, and they channeled their escape lights to the maximum.
Xie’er cleared the path with the golden cockscomb. After rushing while fighting fiercely, Liu Ming and the others finally rushed out of the mist sea.
“No, Mr. Qiu isn’t out yet?”
Just when the few people flew out not far, they suddenly found that only 3 of them came out. The missing person was the hunchbacked old man.
At this moment, the young woman in a red dress was also covered in blood, and her injuries were not light. The handsome young man was now in ragged clothes, and the folding fan in his hand was also dimmed.
Liu Ming just slapped the soul-recovering bag on his waist and put Xie’er back into the leather bag. Hearing this, he glanced over with a gloomy face.
The hole was quickly closing up. It was obviously not realistic to go back and save him.
At this moment, there was an earth-shattering noise. A gray sword light burst out from the other side of the mist sea. After a few flashes, it landed before them.
“What are you waiting for? Do you still want to fall into the Ghost Wall Array again?” After the golden light faded, a tall and thin man with a yellow face shouted in a low voice.
“Captain Min! Mr. Qiu and…” The young woman immediately wanted to report the fall of the 2 members.
“Don’t say anything, just leave this place first!” The cultivator surnamed Min interrupted the young woman’s words, then he channeled the gray sword and dashed toward the north.
Seeing this, Liu Ming and others naturally could only follow up in escape lights.
After more than an hour, they finally flew out of the barren jungle without stopping.
Everyone’s escaping speed slowed down.
“Thanks to Brother Liu for saving my life this time. I’m really grateful!” The young woman in a red dress looked relieved and bowed to Liu Ming.
“Speaking of which, Brother Liu’s spiritual pet is really good. It can actually deter those ghost dogs and stopped them from approaching. It’s very miraculous.” The handsome young man also bowed to Liu Ming.
“It’s thanks to Captain Min who took the risk to shake the array eye. Because of that, we got a chance to escape. But it’s unfortunate to the other 2 members.” Liu Ming waved his hand and said.
When the young woman in a red dress and the handsome young man thought of the burly man with a bow and the hunchbacked old man, their face turned gloomy.
“If I guess it correctly, this ambush should have something to do with those seven orifices ghosts. It’s okay, let’s not go further into this. We should return to the city and hand this fortune bowl to the elders first.” The cultivator surnamed Min sighed softly, then he instructed them.
“It seems that someone else is coming.” At this moment, Liu Ming looked alert, and he looked in a certain direction.
A green light flashed in the horizon and approached them quickly.
Others also looked at it in shock. The young woman and the young man were in a fighting stance after the previous trauma.
“It’s our people!” The cultivator surnamed Min said suddenly after taking a few glances.
“Eh, it’s… Yue Qi?” Liu Ming murmured to himself after narrowing his eyes, but his tone was full of surprise.
“Captain Min, Brother Liu!” After a few flashes, it appeared before them, but he seemed badly injured.
After the escape light faded, a thin man was revealed. He was Yue Qi.
At this moment, his green shirt was tattered, and his face looked bloodless.
“What happened? Where are Old Man Zhuo and the others?” The cultivator surnamed Min asked with a frown upon seeing this.
“Haiz, this is a long story…” Yue Qi smiled wryly.
It turned out that the ninth squad, which Yue Qi belonged, did a carpet search under the lead of the Real Pellet State old man with green eyes.
As a result, after searching for a whole day and night to no avail, he led a group of people to the tribe of seven orifices ghosts. After spending a lot of money, he also learned 3 places where fortune bowls might appear.
These 3 places were the same as those provided by the seven orifices ghost king at that time!
However, the ninth squad was not as lucky as Liu Ming and others. The first place they visited happened to have a ghost army stationed there. After a fierce battle, everyone in the ninth squad immediately dispersed and ran for their lives.
Hearing what happened to the ninth squad, both the handsome young man and the young woman in a red dress were shocked. They looked at each other in astonishment.
Liu Ming was also shocked slightly.
The cultivator surnamed Min looked gloomy. He said after a while,
“Since we have dealt with these indigenous ghost creatures, our human race has suffered a lot from them, but because we still obtained a lot of useful information, we turned a blind eye to this matter, which made these ghost creatures more and more presumptuous. After returning, I will report this to the elders. We will not let this matter end easily. Since Mr. Yue is injured, you should return to the Golden Light City with us.”
“Thank you, Captain Min!” Yue Qi said with a look of gratitude and bowed to Captain Min when he heard the words.
A day later, they finally returned to the small slope a hundred miles away from Golden Light City.
Standing here, the magnificent Golden Light City could be vaguely seen.
On the way, some wandering ghost creatures or small clusters of ghost army encountered were naturally killed by them.
Among them, the young woman in a red dress and Yue Qi did not hide their monstrous murderous intentions at all. When they encountered the indigenous ghost creatures that went out alone, they directly killed them mercilessly. Obviously, it was to vent their resentment.
In this regard, the cultivator surnamed Min naturally didn’t say anything, and Liu Ming naturally didn’t try to stop things that had nothing to do with him. He even collected a few ghost creatures along the way.
When they entered the city, the handsome young man chatted casually with the garrison, then he reported back to the cultivator surnamed Min,
“There is still no news from the others. Will Captain Mu and the others also encounter a bad end.”
“Mu Di has just replied through the disk array. Their squad is fine. They are on their way back. The others can go back to rest first. Mr. Yue, there is still no news from your squads, you should look for Captain Fang of the third team. The scout unit he is in charge of is well-informed. See if they can find the whereabouts of others. Liu Ming, you come with me.” The cultivator surnamed Min gave an order to them.
After the handsome young man and the young woman in a red dress responded, they flew back toward their residence.
“Thank you Captain Min for the advice!” Yue Qi also hurried in the other direction after cupping his fist at the cultivator surnamed Min and Liu Ming.
Liu Ming followed the cultivator surnamed Min toward the middle tower.
“It’s beyond my expectations that you found the fortune bowl so quickly.” After 10 minutes, the cold-faced middle-aged man in the tower in the center of Golden Light City said to them. Hao Yue Tongzi was no longer there.
“Reporting to Elder Gu, we have let the other disciples check the fortune bowl. I was careless in this mission, so we got ambushed by the ghost army, which caused 1 dead and 1 missing in my squad.” The cultivator surnamed Min bowed and reported with a hint of shame on his face.
