Liu Ming ignored him. A hint of murderous intent flashed in his eyes.
He just waved his sleeve, and a gray light flashed in his hand. He then turned into 4 phantasms and rushed forward.
In mid-air, he hurriedly made gestures.
A series of bangs sounded one after another!
The remaining mist dragons and tigers exploded all together, turning into a rolling black mist that shrouded the man in a brocade.
Liu Ming’s 4 phantasms flashed into the black mist too.
The man in a brocade looked at the rolling black mist, and he waved in the air. The Hell Devour Rings trembled slightly and emitted countless gray silk that circled around him.
At this time, the gray silk shot out of the ring had turned into an interlocking gray net. The surrounding black mist kept being sucked by the gray rings.
“Whoosh“, 4 phantasms flashed out around the man in a brocade.
“Hmph, I’m just waiting for you!”
Before the 4 phantasms stood firm, the man in a brocade shouted. Countless gray silk blasted out from the 5 Hell Devour Rings.
Dense gray silk penetrated 3 phantasms, tearing them apart.
Only the last phantasm remained. He flicked his arm and shot a gray light. The gray light instantly magnified and ground the gray silk into dust.
It was that Mother Son Yin Soul Swords!
The gray sword light kept the momentum and rolled toward the man in a brocade.
The man in a brocade snorted. As he formed gestures, the 5 Hell Devour Rings combined into a single gray ring. He turned both hands, and the gray ring hovered in front of him.
The gray sword light passed through the ring but stopped suddenly, then the ring turned sideways, firmly stucking the sword.
The ring shone brightly, sucking the yin qi from the mother son swords. The swords trembled in the air, making a whimper.
“Hmph, as long as it’s yin qi, there’s nothing that this Hell Devour Rings can’t absorb. Now your hell weapon is under my control, can you still…” The man in a brocade said proudly as if he was determined about his victory.
However, before finishing his sentence, Liu Ming changed a gesture.
A clear whistle.
A small pale gray sword only about a foot long flashed out from the mother sword like lightning.
When the man in a brocade wanted to do something, it was too late; the small gray sword had already pierced through his forehead.
The man in a brocade looked at Liu Ming with his mouth slightly opened, then he fell directly to the ground.
The next moment, Liu Ming recalled back the 2 gray sword lights into his hand and rubbed both hands, combining the 2 swords into 1.
This situation on the arena like like a stream of water without stopping. Just a moment ago, Liu Ming seemed to be at a disadvantage, but after only 3 seconds, the man in a brocade died on the spot!
This scene made the crowds stunned!
Most of these people didn’t even see what happened. They only saw a flash of gray light, then the man in a brocade collapsed to the ground.
On the high platform, City lord Leng Yue naturally noticed this scene, but after a quick glance, he looked away.
It was nothing unusual. Although it was not easy to beat Real Pellet State with the cultivation of Pseudo Pellet State, how would a Celestial State powerhouse value him.
On the arena where Liu Ming was, after the man in a brocade fell, the gray enchantment also collapsed.
When the 2 deputies jumped up and confirmed that the man in a brocade was totally dead, they quickly took the corpse down the arena. It was just that they were looking at Liu Ming with fear in their eyes.
After watching the deputies carrying the corpse down, he glanced at the surrounding crowds with a blank face.
This time, no one came up to challenge again for a while.
Liu Ming’s powerful strength made some people, who were eager to try, gave up the idea. They ran to the other arenas to look for the weaker ones or the exhausted opponents after nonstop battles.
Seeing this scene, Liu Ming was also relieved.
Although he was not worried about being challenged, if he was really challenged by these people in a nonstop manner, he would feel overwhelmed too.
Time passed quickly. In the blink of an eye, there was only a small portion of Hell Sun left in the sky. It was almost evening.
Among the 10 arenas at the moment, apart from the arena where Liu Ming was, there were 4 arena that no one dared to challenge again.
Among them, the foreign Serene Clan cultivator with blue eyes was also among them.
The remaining 5 arenas seem to have become the target of everyone. The defenders had been changing all the time.
Liu Ming didn’t mind being so leisure. He just quietly waited for the results of the last few arenas while carefully checking a few other powerhouses that were basically determined to win.
Almost all of these people were from the Real Pellet State world. A burly man who had a ferocious giant ape ghost creature was even at the Real Pellet State later stage.
After another quarter of an hour, a bell rang came from the middle platform. The crowds immediately quieted down.
Because everyone knew that the bell rang signified that this selection had finally come to an end.
The 10 Serene Clan cultivators who were still standing in the 10 arenas had naturally become the 10 rookies joining in the escort team this time.
“Very good! There seem to be more talented people in the Cold Moon City in recent years. I didn’t expect a Pseudo Pellet State to stay until the end! With you guys, I believe the tribute this time will be delivered successfully.” On the high platform in the middle, Leng Yue finally showed a smile. He turned his gaze at the 10 arenas and looked at Liu Ming a little longer, then he said slowly.
“We will try our my best to escort the tributes to Bi You City for the city lord!” In the admiring eyes of everyone, Liu Ming and the other 9 turned around and bowed to the high platform in the middle.
Seeing this, Leng Yue nodded slightly.
“Long live city lord! The guards for escorting the tribute are all ready. This time, we will show better results against the few forces at the Cold Water City! Now that the candidates are selected, we just have to wait for the 5 Serene Generals appointed by city lord to return.” At this moment, the old man in a black robe next to Leng Yue stepped forward and flattered a few words.
“Yeah, the tribute we prepared this time will definitely satisfy Lord Bi You, and we will of course be more valued by Lord Bi You!” Another woman in a black robe also said in a good mood.
“Having said that, don’t be careless! Those guys are all cunning foxes! Let me get one thing straight here, I entrust you 2 to handle this matter. If anything happens, you 2 better have a good explanation!” The Cold Moon City’s city lord suddenly said coldly after hearing their words, then he disappeared.
The old man and the woman looked at each other in dismay. They also flew in the direction of Cold Moon City.
After seeing that Leng Yue and the 2 elders had left the place, the clamor sounded from the crowd again. They began to talk excitedly about the selection just now and the 10 newly selected Serene Clan cultivators this time.
As long as these people could successfully complete the next escort mission, they would not only get a large reward after returning, but they would also be glorified as Serene Generals and sent to guard the hell stone veins. They didn’t have to worry about the resources needed for cultivation.
In the following time, after Liu Ming and others used the identity token for identity verification, they were told to go back to rest. Before the escort team set off, they would be notified in advance.
One day more than half a month later, in the secret room of a small inn in the city, Liu Ming was sitting cross-legged with a map in his hand, contemplating the upcoming tribute paying with a solemn expression.
At this moment, wisps of gray light flashed in his identity token, followed by a line of small purple characters.
“3 days later, gather in the west of the city at noon!”
“Finally setting off!”
Hearing this, Liu Ming had a hint of excitement in his eyes. After muttering to himself, he put away the map, left the inn, and walked towards the northeast market of the Cold Moon City.
3 days later.
On a plain outside the west city gate of the Cold Moon City, a huge green flag several meters high fluttered in the wind. On the flag, the 2 large silver characters of “Cold Moon” were very eye-catching.
On a high platform above the banner, Leng Yue, the city lord in a silver brocade robe, stood with his hands behind his back.
In front of him, Serene Clan cultivators dressed in gray armor stood neatly. There were more than 500 people.
These people were divided into 5 phalanxes. In front of each phalanx was a Serene Clan cultivator in silver armor, faintly exuding the aura of Real Pellet State.
On the side of these people, 5 giant ghost beasts about 240 meters in size were crawling on the ground.
These ghost beasts looked similar to bats. Their eyes were covered by something. On their flat backs about the size of an acre were densely placed many gray circular buildings. Each of them was about 24 meters in size.
“So many people are sent, are they worried that we can’t protect these tributes?” Beside these teams, there were 10 Serene Clan cultivators dressed in various costumes. They were Liu Ming and the others who were selected to participate in the escort. The burly man who controlled a giant ape said with displeased upon seeing this.
