Liu Ming tumbled out for dozens of meters before stabilizing his body. He spouted a few mouthfuls of blood with a pale face.
The Celestial State ghost general was surprised. It didn’t expect that the Pseudo Pellet State human cultivator, who had taken its almost full blow, only spat out a few mouthfuls of blood.
Its face turned solemn. It waved and grabbed at the space above Liu Ming.
A buzzing sound came from mid-air, stirring up a gust of wind. Strands of black crystal lights emerged and condensed into a giant black axe the size of a house. It trembled slightly and struck from the top of Liu Ming.
A sharp and heavy spiritual pressure burst out, and even the nearby space was twisted and distorted. Circles of waves could be seen with eyes.
The spiritual pressure instantly acted on Liu Ming, causing his body to sink abruptly. He felt like his muscles and bones were about to burst in the next moment!
Liu Ming was startled. He was about to make a move when a white light shot from the direction of Golden Light City, hitting the black axe swiftly.
Black and white lights suddenly burst out in all directions. Liu Ming was the closest to the blast center. He wrapped himself with black air to protect himself from the blast.
At this moment, he could barely see clearly that in the white light was a white jade ring only about 3 meters in size. It was steaming like it was alive.
It was a magic weapon!
On the west city wall of the Golden Light City, the old man surnamed Yao was standing against the wind and facing the Celestial State ghost general from a distance.
The old man surnamed Yao launched symbols, and the white jade ring burst out white light with a snap, bouncing off the giant black axe.
A white light erupted from jade ring and wrapped Liu Ming.
Liu Ming hurriedly launched a symbol at the damaged corpse in black robe, then it returned in a golden light.
Inside the golden light was a pale golden talisman, which was the yellow turban soldier talisman.
Liu Ming had long been skillful in using the yellow turban soldier talisman as a substitute. It really played a role today.
The next moment, Liu Ming was carried away by the white jade ring. The ghost general couldn’t stop it in time.
“Thank you Elder Yao!”
On the city wall, Liu Ming put away the yellow turban soldier talisman, turned around and bowed to the old man surnamed Yao.
The old man surnamed Yao looked away from Liu Ming’s hand, waved his hand slightly, and then looked out of the city.
In the air outside the city, the ghost general in silver armor frowned and did not continue to pursue. It waved and retrieved the giant black axe into its hand.
At the same time, the ghost army that besieged Golden Light City also slowly retreated with a few long horns.
The old man surnamed Yao saw that the ghost army outside the city was temporarily retreating, he breathed a sigh of relief. He turned around and was about to ask something when a gray light flashed down. A gray-haired middle-aged man appeared. It was Elder Wei.
“Brother Yao!” The gray-haired middle-aged man greeted the old man surnamed Yao, then he turned his eyes to Liu Ming.
“Greeting to grand elders.” Liu Ming bowed immediately.
“I remember your name is Liu Ming. You were dispatched to Taitian Fortress some time ago.” The gray-haired middle-aged man looked at Liu Ming with a hint of doubt on his face.
“It’s me indeed. This time, I was ordered by Elder Peng to report something important to grand elders.” Liu Ming said respectfully.
Although the old man surnamed Yao and the gray-haired middle-aged man had some vague guesses in their hearts, they were still shocked by the words.
Now the entire Golden Light City has almost completely cut off contact with the outside world, and it even lost contact with the Taitian Fortress. Although they also wanted to send disciples to break through the besieged, they failed for various reasons.
“This is not the place to talk. Follow me.” The old man surnamed Yao released a white light and carried Liu Ming toward the tower in the center of the city.
The gray-haired middle-aged man quickly instructed a few Real Pellet State deputy elders on the city wall, then he also followed in.
“Isn’t that person just now Liu Ming?” Among the disciples guarding the city, someone quickly recognized Liu Ming.
In the past 5 years, Liu Ming has been regarded as a well-known figure in the Golden Light Army, so many people recognized him.
“Wasn’t he dispatched to the Taitian Fortress? How could he be here?”
“Did he escape from Taitian Fortress?” The surrounding cultivators were discussing.
On the other side of the city, Hao Yue Tongzi and the middle-aged man surnamed Gu looked at each other with doubts, but now that Liu Ming was brought away by the other elders, they of course couldn’t tell as well.
“Why did Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu come back…”
Above the city wall, Min Rong, the former captain of the seventh squad, watched Liu Ming and the 2 Celestial State grand elders walk into the main tower, and muttered to himself.
Under the lead of the grand elders, Liu Ming went straight to a secret room in the main tower. The old man surnamed Yao flicked his sleeves and cast a soundproof enchantment.
“Okay, it’s fine now.” The old man surnamed Yao said.
“How is the situation at the Taitian Fortress now?” The gray-haired middle-aged man asked impatiently.
“Taitian Fortress was suddenly attacked by the ghost army a few days ago. Fortunately, the four elders in the city joined forces to initiate the Taitian Array, which barely repelled the ghost army… Now the entire city is sealed by the “Xuan Door Ghost Burial Array”. All the cultivators in the city, including the 4 elders, were kept inside. All communication signals in the fortress were cut off… In addition, there are 4 ghost generals in the enemy army…” Liu Ming briefly described the situation of the Taitian Fortress.
“Xuan Door Ghost Burial Array! No wonder…” The old man surnamed Yao said with a soft sigh.
When the gray-haired middle-aged man heard that there were 4 ghost generals, he also frowned tightly.
There were 2 Celestial State ghost generals outside the Golden Light City, and it was probably the same situation in the other 3 cities. The ghost army should have gone all out in uprooting the 4 major legions in one fell swoop.
“By the way, has Master’s Junior Huo Ye shown himself yet?” The gray-haired middle-aged man suddenly thought of something and asked.
“Grandmaster Huo Ye has never appeared, so after Elder Peng discussed with the elders of the other 3 sects, they decided to let 1 disciple of the 4 major sects break through the encirclement and rush to the 4 major cities… Elder Peng asked me to give this to elders.” A palm-sized round disc appeared in Liu Ming’s hand with a flash.
This disc seemed to be made of some kind of special metal. It seemed inconspicuous, but it exuded a mysterious aura.
The old man surnamed Yao and the gray-haired middle-aged man looked at each other in shock when they saw the silver disc in Liu Ming’s hand.
“Did Elder Peng have any words for us?” The old man surnamed Yao asked solemnly after taking a deep breath.
“Elder Peng said that the situation is now at the juncture of life and death. Only by using this method can the situation be reversed. The other legions will do the same.” Liu Ming replied respectfully.
“I understand what they mean. In fact, we already have this intention, but we have been worried about this third token.” The old man surnamed Yao took the disc from Liu Ming’s hand and said slowly.
The gray-haired middle-aged man also nodded solemnly.
“By the way, to initiate this ultimate mean, it needs 3 tokens. Each token has a corresponding special esoteric incantation. Elder Peng should have already arranged for it right?” The old man surnamed Yao thought about it and asked Liu Ming.
“Elders don’t have to worry, Elder Peng has already passed on the incantation to me.” Liu Ming said calmly.
“That’s good. You should rest for a while first. Later when we initiate it, we still need your help.” The old man surnamed Yao nodded and said.
Liu Ming agreed, walked to the corner of the hall and sat down cross-legged.
Outside Puppet City, where Nature Work Sect was located, it was also surrounded by tens of thousands of ghost army groups, which were much more numerous than Golden Light City.
However, the legion outside the city seemed to be a little chaotic at the moment. On the plain near the south city wall, there was the wreckage of a flying disc puppet several meters in size. Judging from the damage, it seemed that it had just been destroyed.
In a hall in Puppet City, the honest-looking young man in a yellow robe was tattered, and he also suffered some injuries. At this moment, he was sitting cross-legged on the ground. A slender, white-haired middle-aged man was standing beside him, releasing a white light to cover the honest-looking young man.
Next to the young man, there was an old dwarf man in a red shirt. Although his physique was weird, the aura emanating from his body was no weaker than that of the white-haired middle-aged man.
After a long time, the honest-looking young man opened his eyes. His wounds had mostly healed. He stood up and said with a bow.
“Thank you Elder You for helping. I’m fine now!” The honest-looking young man said.
“Okay, let’s leave the casual talk later. That guy must have something to let you inform us since you came here from Taitian Fortress.” The white-haired middle-aged man put away the white light in his hand and said.
“Yes, Elder Fang intends to use Xuan Sacred Puppet.” The honest-looking young man took out a hexagonal roulette.
Seeing this, the white-haired middle-aged man’s pupils shrank slightly, then he exchanged glances with the dwarf in a red cloth. They both nodded slightly.
Inside the secret room of a tower in Demon Subdue City.
“So that’s the case. Since Elder Shi also agreed to wake up the Bloodthirst Demonic Lizard, we will do it accordingly. There is no other good way besides this.” The beautiful woman surnamed Qi said with a sigh.
Beside him, the young man with long eyebrows in a black robe looked a little excited.
In front of them, a veiled woman stood with her hands down. Her chest was undulating slightly. She seemed to be out of spiritual power.
“Order all the Demon Vanquish Army’s disciples in the city to get ready. We will fight back in half a day!” The beautiful woman surnamed Qi ordered coldly.
