“Thirteen Holes Real Pellet, this… is really unheard of…”
An extra hole inexplicably appeared. Liu Ming didn’t know if he should be happy now. Fortunately, there was no discomfort or other abnormality in the body.
“Forget it, it’s useless to think about this. Let’s fully recover…”
After thinking for a while, Liu Ming felt that it should not be a bad thing, so he put the matter aside and prepared to think about it later.
In the following time, he took out several healing elixirs from the Sumeru Ring and consumed them. A cool feeling spread in his body.
He channeled the Dragon Tiger Hell Prison with difficulty, and a faint black air suddenly appeared on his body.
At this time, the effect of the spirit gathering array was still there, and all the spirits transformed by the spirit stones had been completely dissipated. It was surging into his body with wisps of yin qi.
He was now absorbing spirit and yin qi at a faster rate, which is many times faster than before, and he had the blood of the Sky Beastkin, so his body on the verge of collapse recovered quickly.
When Xie’er and Fei’er saw this, they guarded on both sides patiently to prevent outsiders from disturbing him.
After 3 days and 3 nights, in the center of the black vortex enchantment at the bottom of the hell river, a black mist cocoon with a height of one person slowly circulated. A black and white mist formed a funnel-shaped vortex above the cocoon.
Suddenly, a long whistle came from the mist cocoon, and the surrounding black air violently rolled around for a while, then it melted like snow, revealing Liu Ming inside.
His injury was fully recovered now. He looked full of energy.
He folded his arms forward and spread open without using spiritual power, but a visible soundwave could be seen spreading in the air.
“Congratulations to master for successfully condensing a real pellet and making great progress!” Outside the spirit gathering array, Xie’er and Fei’er flew over and congratulated.
“These 13 thunder tribulations in a row were a near-death experience. Thanks to you 2 who were guarding me.” Liu Ming smiled slightly, took out a green robe from the Sumeru Ring and put it on, and he said.
“We are just doing our job, master.” The girl in black tulle replied with a smile.
The boy next to him nodded again and again.
“In any case, you have also made great contributions. Now my injuries have all recovered, you 2 no need to protect me anymore. I will stay here for a while to consolidate my cultivation. You 2 should train on your own to condense the real pellet as well.” Liu Ming smiled slightly and instructed.
The environment at the bottom of the hell river was very suitable for cultivating Hell Bone Secret. He had just advanced to the real pellet, so his realm had not been completely stabilized. Besides, he only practiced until the 9th level of the Hell Bone Secret, so he planned to learn the first 10 level here.
The 10th level of Hell Bone Secret was equivalent to the Real Pellet State early stage. For Liu Ming, who had just successfully formed a pill, there shouldn’t be a problem.
“Yes!” Xie’er responded and walked to the side to sit down.
Fei’er looked up at the sky above the enchantment and pouted. In the end, he appeared in the open space on the other side with a flick, and he released a black to wrap himself.
Liu Ming clenched his hands tightly. The muscles and bones in his body suddenly made a series of muffled sounds. Streams of extremely pure spiritual power flowed out from the black and white real pellet above the sea of consciousness.
He believed that if the Dragon Tiger Hell Prison skill was used at this moment, its power would definitely be several times stronger than before. The 12 Mountain River Pearls that he could only channel for a short duration previously, he could not channel them for 15 minutes.
Not only that, the 13 holes on the surface of the black and white real pellet seem to be like the nose and mouth. In every breath, he could mobilize spiritual power all over him. No matter what spiritual weapon he used now, it was a lot faster than before.
In addition, after advancing to the real pellet, he also obtained a longer life span.
The cultivator of the Crystallization Period had a life span of about one thousand years, and the Real Pellet State cultivator could live for five thousand years.
“Hmph, it is just condensing a real pellet, and you are so excited! Well, I have something to do with you, come in.” Just when Liu Ming was agitated, Luo Hu’s cold voice sounded in his ears.
After hearing the words, he quickly injected spiritual power into the Celestial Tablet in the sea of consciousness, and he appeared in the prison space.
After he advanced to the real pellet, the prison space became much larger than before. It expanded to the size of 10 miles as if a small world. The misty sky had a little more black air floating around.
Not far ahead, Luo Hu was standing beside the Celestial Tablet with his hands behind his back. The Illusive Demonic Pupil on the tablet was tightly closed. A strange light flashed around it.
“Senior Luo Hu!” When Liu Ming saw this, he quickly appeared in front of the Celestial Tablet and bowed to Luo Hu.
Luo Hu looked Liu Ming up and down, nodded slightly, and said casually,
“Not bad. After rebuilding the body through Ninth Heaven Divine Thunder, all the messy things in your body have been removed. By coincidence, you even obtained the Sky Beastkin’s blood. Your foundation has finally stabilized.”
“… May I know why Senior Luo Hu summon me?” Liu Ming was accustomed to Luo Hu’s cold and mean voice. He just asked indifferently.
“You have now advanced to the real pellet, so you have barely met the basic conditions for becoming the master of the prison.” Luo Hu said lightly.
Liu Ming was overjoyed, but before he could say anything, Luo Hu’s icy voice sounded again,
“Don’t get carried away. Over the years, despite my efforts in restraining, the prison weapon spirit is still gradually awakening. You and I must act faster.”
Liu Ming looked anxious. He hurriedly cupped his fist, “Junior’s knowledge is shallow, I will listen to senior’s arrangement.”
Luo Hu didn’t speak. He just raised his hand and launched a light into Liu Ming’s forehead.
“This is…” Liu Ming didn’t dodge. The light quickly entered his sea of consciousness and turned into small gray characters.
“Although you have advanced to the Real Pellet State now, you are only beginning to take control of the prison. Compared with weapon spirit, you are still far away. If you want to truly become the master of prison, you must reach the Celestial State first. By the time the weapon spirit wakes up, it will no longer be able to regain dominance from you.”
“So now the most important thing is time. From now on, you will drop a drop of blood essence into the Illusive Demonic Pupil every month, then use the mystic art I just passed on to you to turn the blood essence into the Illusive Demonic Heart Flame. This method can delay the awakening time of the prison’s weapon Spirit, and the Illusive Demonic Heart Flame will also improve your control over the prison so that you can completely control the prison when dueling with the weapon spirit.” Luo Hu lowered his arms and said with a dignified expression.
“Oh it is.” The mystic art just now wasn’t hard to understand. Liu Ming quickly understood the essence of it.
“I didn’t show up for decades because I was restraining the weapon spirit in the depths of the prison. On the one hand, after spending a large amount of vitality and effort, I can finally mobilize the spiritual power absorbed from the previous ‘masters’ to inject into your body. It will speed up your cultivation progress.” Luo Hu said lightly.
“Is this true?” Liu Ming was overjoyed.
“Didn’t you already feel it at the moment when you condensed the real pellet! Will I still lie to you? However, it was a one-time injection. The injection later is rather slow. Although it will cause certain damage to the prison, there is no other choice.” Luo Hu snorted coldly and said.
“Thank you for your great help, senior. I will definitely repay you again in the future.” This time, Liu Ming bowed respectfully.
If he could receive this kind of spiritual power injection from time to time, his cultivation would rise at a very terrifying speed.
“No need to repay, just don’t forget what you promised me. This way will involve the origin power of the prison, so the prison’s weapon spirit may notice it and wake up faster. With every injection, my vitality will be expended a lot. In the following 20 years, I will inject every once in a while. As for how far you can go, it depends on your effort.” Luo Hu said.
“Okay, this junior understands!” Although Liu Ming was a little disappointed, he knew that this was already a great opportunity.
“There’s nothing else for now. You can go out. Before the next time I use this injection mystic art, I still need to do some preparations. I will inform you when that time comes.” Luo Hu rudely ordered him to leave, then he was about to fade away.
“Senior, please wait a moment. Junior has something to ask for.” Liu Ming’s thoughts changed, and he hurriedly said again.
“What’s the matter?” Luo Hu frowned and turned around.
“Senior should also know that I attracted 2 rounds of thunder tribulation when condensing the real pellet. There are 13 holes on my real pellet now. According to my knowledge, there are only 12 holes at most, is this 13 holes a kind of mutation? Will there be…” Liu Ming said with a somewhat uneasy expression.
“Although it’s the first time I’ve heard of the Thirteen Holes Real Pellet, the more golden holes the Real Pellet State cultivator has, the greater the benefit to cultivation. You don’t have to worry too much about this.” Luo Hu thought about it and said so.
Hearing this, Liu Ming breathed a sigh of relief, then he suddenly thought of something and asked again,
“One more thing, the Ninth Heaven Divine Thunder that Senior Luo Hu asked me to seal in the sea of consciousness seems to have turned into a five-color thunder seal in my real pellet. What should I do now?”
“Ninth Heaven Divine Thunder begins to transform into a Ninth Heaven Thunder Seal. This is a sign that it has stabilized in your body. You don’t need to pay attention to it. This matter is only good for you. In addition, you can also use Heavenly Thunder Spell with ease now.” Luo Hu faintly said.
As soon as Luo Hu finished speaking, he disappeared with a flick.
“Junior can rest assured then.” Liu Ming hurriedly cupped his fist, feeling relief in his mind.
