After Liu Ming left the restaurant, he went directly to a large hall in the center of Qing Yue City.
Many cities in the deepest underworld had teleportation circles that connected with each other. For the cultivators who acted alone, in order to save time and for safety considerations, they would choose to travel through teleportation arrays, but the cost wasn’t small.
Liu Ming took several teleportation arrays in a row and came to a quite prosperous city. After passing through several streets, he came to a quite courtyard.
This was the temporary residence he rented.
In the secret room, Liu Ming sat cross-legged on a futon with a thoughtful look.
It was a pleasant surprise to encounter Yin Liu, but there was always a mysterious aura about this person. He still didn’t know his intentions, so he had to be more careful.
After some thought, he took out a white jade slip and stuck it on his forehead.
At Dong Hao’s place, he just checked the contents of the jade slip. Now that the time to meet up with Yin Liu was 3 months later, he could study the information carefully and do some more preparations…
3 months passed in a flash.
In the early morning, outside Tai Zhen City in Serene Water Region, 2 escape lights galloped towards the sky in the distance.
In the escape light, a middle-aged man in a gray shirt and a young man in a white robe could be seen. It was Liu Ming and Yin Liu.
Tai Zhen City was located in the north of the Serene Water Region, adjacent to the You Qing Region. Between the 2 regions was an endless mountain range. The legendary extremely dangerous place, Tomb of Serene King, was located here.
After a long day of flying, the sky gradually darkened, and the deepest underworld aura that filled the air grew thicker. Even with the protective light, Liu Ming could clearly feel the cold aura.
“It’s not far from the Tomb of Serene King. You should be able to see the tidal cold current after passing through the Storm Mountain Range in front.” Yin Liu glanced around and said.
Hearing this, Liu Ming raised his head and looked into the distance. He saw a large rolling black mountain range in the distance ahead, covering almost half of the sky.
He closed his eyes lightly, feeling the increasingly gloomy yin qi in the air. He nodded slightly.
After 15 minutes, they stopped in front of the “Storm Mountain Range”. Liu Ming finally realized the meaning of the mountain’s name.
Where the mountain range come into view, there were all bare black rocks without a trace of vegetation.
The black hell wind visible to the naked eye in the air whizzed through the mountain, making a ghost shrill. There was a biting chill in the hell wind. Ordinary people would be frozen into popsicles in less than a moment.
However, they were naturally prepared.
Liu Ming stretched out his arms, and a layer of black air immediately appeared on his body. It turned into a black shield. Yin Liu took out a golden robe from nowhere and put it on directly. Bursts of invisible heat waves suddenly radiated from the robe.
Liu Ming felt the yin wind around him. A strange light flashed in his eyes. We have encountered the tidal cold wave yet, and it is already this cold. How cold will it be when we get there?
“Where is the secret tunnel you mentioned earlier?” He turned his head and asked Yin Liu.
Hearing the words, Yin Liu took out a jade slip and stuck it on his forehead.
“This way.” After a while, he opened his eyes and put away the jade slip, greeted Liu Ming, and went in a certain direction.
Liu Ming’s eyes moved slightly, and he followed up.
The deeper into the mountain range, the stronger the wind. After finally crossing a mountain range, Liu Ming saw the tidal cold current.
In the air in front, there was a black mist that filled the entire space. Black winds whizzed through like a rampant. There was almost no pattern in the flow.
From a distance, it seemed like a huge black sandstorm.
The chilly biting aura had increased more than tenfold here. With the tenacity of Liu Ming’s body, he also felt a faint sense of numbness.
“It turns out that this is the tidal cold current…” Liu Ming muttered to himself.
The cold current was still in the weakening stage, and he hadn’t ventured into it yet. It was conceivable that if he chose another period to come, his chances were very small.
Thinking of this, he glanced at Yin Liu.
At this moment, the golden robe on Yin Liu’s body exuded a dazzling golden light, but his face did not look abnormal. Suddenly, he moved to the left.
Seeing this, Liu Ming channeled spiritual power into the black barrier. He also followed up in black light.
After a quarter of an hour, they came to a hidden narrow valley.
“Look at the sign on the map, the tunnel should be here.” Yin Liu said with flickering eyes.
Liu Ming looked around, and the depths of the valley were foggy. Because of the large mountains on both sides of the valley, the tidal storms here were indeed much thinner than other places.
“Then let’s go.” Liu Ming said.
Yin Liu smiled and nodded.
They immediately landed at the entrance of the valley, then they walked side by side into the valley.
At this moment, Liu Ming’s body was wrapped in black air, and a red light curtain was lit up from a fiery red jade pendant from his waist.
In the past 3 months, he had forged the Warm Sun Jade into a cold protection jade pendant of the upper grade. The cold protection had greatly improved.
As traces of warmth radiated from the red light curtain, the surrounding cold air was immediately isolated, making Liu Ming’s body warm.
Yin Liu chanted a few incomprehensible incantations, then waves of golden runes appeared on the golden robe. The weakened cold current in the valley couldn’t get close to his body at all.
Seeing this situation, a strange light flashed in Liu Ming’s eyes. The rune patterns on the golden robe of Yin Liu was quite different from the hell pattern in this world, but it was more similar to the spirit patterns of the human race.
Yin Liu seemed to sense Liu Ming’s gaze, so he turned around with a meaningful smile.
Liu Ming’s eyes flashed. After Yin Liu smiled, he turned his head.
They had their own ways to protect from the cold current. The cold current in the valley was much weaker, except their sight was slightly blurred, they still advanced at a moderate speed.
About half an hour later, they could no longer see the valley entrance behind them. The surrounding cold current gradually became thicker too.
A black hurricane with a height of 300 meters suddenly came from the front swiftly.
As the hurricane spun frantically, an unbelievable suction came from it. The flying sand and rocks, together with the tidal cold current, were sucked into it by the giant force, making the hurricane thicker and thicker.
“It’s the tidal cold vortex, dodge!” Yin Liu shouted in shock. He dodged to the side, then he slashed with a 3 feet long sword.
As the black sword light hit, a dozen 30 meters pits appeared on the walls.
Yin Liu flashed and hid in 1 of the pits.
Seeing this, Liu Ming also flashed into the pit.
In just a few seconds, there was nothing in the tunnel in the valley ahead except for the dark hurricane.
The black hurricane whizzed past with a piercing sound and soon disappeared into the distance.
“I didn’t expect that there would also be a tidal cold vortex in the valley…” Yin Liu said with lingering fears after coming out from the pit.
According to records, the tidal cold vortex was a place where tidal cold currents were dense, and a large-scale mutation occasionally occurred. If one was unfortunately involved in it, even if his body wasn’t torn into pieces, he would suffer serious injuries. Moreover, it wasn’t easy to escape from it. One would be ultimately exhausted to death in it.
“Fortunately, Brother Yin responded in a timely manner. Let’s move on now.” Liu Ming replied noncommittally. He glanced at the flying sword held in Yin Liu’s hand with a thoughtful hint.
The moment Yin Liu drew out his sword, he felt the Sword Maru in the void attribute sword pouch faintly trembled.
The following was relatively smooth, but according to the map, the mountains on both sides became shorter and shorter and the cold current became larger.
“The next distance, we have to rush in by force. After a few more miles, we will get out of the tidal cold current. After that, we will arrive at the outer area of the Tomb of Serene King.” Yin Liu channeled spiritual power into the golden robe while saying.
“No problem, since we are here, how can we not take any risk!” Liu Ming’s eyes flashed. The rolling black air around him turned into a black light stream and charged forward.
Yin Liu looked at Liu Ming, smiled and also rushed forward in a golden light. The speed was not much slower than Liu Ming.
Here was a gravel slope that had collapsed for the most part. There 2 meters tall weeds on the slope. Nearby was an endless and lifeless barren grassland.
Looking further into the distance, it was a low rolling slope, and the trails between the hills were incomparably winding, leading to a large area of strange blood-red forest. It was impossible to see the situation in the depths of the forest.
At this time, with the rustling sounds of gravel, Liu Ming and Yin Liu walked toward the slope.
After a while, they finally passed the tidal cold current outside the Tomb of Serene King, then they entered this place through a gourd-shaped valley.
According to the map, the name of this place was the rocky slope, which was the outer area of the Tomb of Serene King. It was only a few hundred miles away from the Tomb of Serene King.
