The lake below was very different from the description on the map obtained by Liu Ming. According to the markings on the map, the Slice Wind Valley should lead directly to a swamp.
Now they were surrounded by mountains and lakes for hundreds of miles. There was not a single swamp at all.
Could it be that they broke into some kind of enchantment by mistake?
After hearing that, Yin Liu looked around and closed his eyes to meditate again.
After a long while, when he opened his eyes, his face was extremely gloomy.
“We shouldn’t be far from the Tomb of Serene King. It’s just…”
Before finishing the sentence, the entire lake below seemed to be boiling in an instant. Bubbles continued to emerge one by one, and then the originally calm lake suddenly became turbulent. A huge vortex emerged from the waves.
The clear lake water suddenly became pitch black, and the surrounding air suddenly cooled down.
“This… this is hell river water!”
Liu Ming scanned with Divine Thought, and he immediately blurted out.
The next moment, he only felt his body sank, and a huge force surged out of the vortex, almost pulling him down. At the same time, thick water beams rushed out of the lake and imprisoned them.
Seeing this, Liu Ming patted the 8 tentacles sea beastkin on his chest. A silver light flashed behind him, and he rose up into the air in a burst of whistles.
But at this moment, there was a faint sound transmission in his ears.
“Brother Yin, the road to the Tomb of Serene King should be at the bottom of this lake.”
Then, Yin Liu flashed with blue light, and a blue carp phantasm wrapped him and charged toward the vortex.
However, Liu Ming’s face was uncertain. After hesitating for a while, he still released rolling black air, turned into a silver-black escape light and dived down.
Liu Ming and Yin Liu entered the vortex one after another.
The huge waves surging all around hit the center of the lake at the same time. The water suddenly splashed all over the sky. The entire lake was turned upside down.
Liu Ming only felt that the surrounding river was spinning rapidly. At this moment, a blue light flashed not far below. A huge blue fishtail phantasm swept past, pushing away the water waves around Liu Ming to both sides and opening the way for him.
Liu Ming no longer hesitated. The wings shook, turning into a silver light that followed the blue carp phantasm.
As a result, there was no particular danger on this waterway, except for some turbulent vortexes and yin beasts that appeared from time to time.
They both used their water technique and passed through the obstacles one by one. Finally, they came to an old teleportation array at the bottom of the lake.
After feeling blurred for a while, they were teleported to a cave where ice crystals were piled up.
In the following time, they went past several enchantments in succession. Although they were in dangers many times and were suffering a little, they still managed to survive one by one.
Although the spiritual power of Yin Liu had been greatly restricted, he could always come up with some strange things to overcome the difficulties. Besides, he also seemed to have some kind of premonition ability. He had issued warnings in advance many times to let them avoid the dangers.
Liu Ming was amazed by his performance, but he became more and more suspicious of his true identity.
Yin Liu also seemed to sense Liu Ming’s somewhat strange gaze, but he didn’t seem to care.
At this time, they were in a gray space. They were teleported here through an old teleportation array deep in a cave.
Liu Ming looked around in surprise.
This place was somewhat similar to the space where he entered the mysterious bubble.
For some reason, in this space, the originally suppressed cultivation had been restored. His spiritual power was also gradually recovering.
“Could it be that this is the Tomb of Serene King?” Liu Ming asked suspiciously.
Yin Liu on the side looked around, but he shook his head at Liu Ming,
“As far as I know, it shouldn’t be, but I have a hunch that the Tomb of Serene King is just a step away.”
Hearing this, Liu Ming couldn’t help laughing bitterly. Just as he was about to say something, the gray space in front of him rippled.
Seeing this, Liu Ming and Yin Liu hurriedly put on an alert posture.
Along the way, they had seen all kinds of strange enchantments in the Tomb of Serene King. What was this enchantment now…
Circles of ripples appeared in the gray space. A gray light flashed, and a huge mirror appeared in front of them. The images of Liu Ming and Yin Liu were clearly reflected on it. They looked extremely realistic, even the look of astonishment was also vividly reflected.
The ripples in the space gradually subsided as if nothing special had happened.
“Mirror? What is this enchantment?” Yin Liu glanced at himself in the mirror, then he looked around in surprise.
Liu Ming was also surprised, but at this moment, Luo Hu’s deep voice into his ears,
“This is the Chaos Rebirth Array. It is one of the top 10 strange arrays in ancient times. It can copy the phantasm of the trapped person and force them to fight. You can only get out after winning the phantasm. I shouldn’t remind you, but this array will reflect your past lives. Normal people will waver and lose focus in the fight with the phantasm. Once you are defeated by the phantasm, you will become a puppet. Even your soul will be devoured by this array. In my opinion, if you pass this test, you will be able to enter the real Tomb of Serene King.”
“Thank you senior for the reminders.”
After listening, Liu Ming’s face twitched. He hurriedly replied in the sea of consciousness.
“I forgot to remind you that there are not many people who can really survive this array. Thank me after you come back alive.” After Luo Hu sneered, he no longer said anything.
Hearing this, Liu Ming’s eyes flashed. When he was about to think about the solution, something changed in the huge mirror in front.
A layer of light suddenly flashed on the mirror surface, and a gray light beam shrouded Liu Ming’s body.
The gray light beam stirred up black air on him. The middle-aged man disguised by the Morph Cloak dissipated, and Liu Ming returned to his original appearance.
Liu Ming was startled. He moved swiftly, leaving traces of afterimages. Liu Ming’s figures were all over the place for a while.
But no matter how Liu Ming moved, the gray light beam still shrouded him.
“Don’t waste your efforts. As long as you are still in this gray space, you can’t escape.” Luo Hu’s voice emerged in Liu Ming’s heart.
Liu Ming stopped abruptly, and the afterimages dissipated.
Seeing this, Yin Liu on the side showed a strange look on his face, but he was not too surprised by Liu Ming, whose face had changed drastically.
At this moment, Liu Ming’s figure in the mirror suddenly became blurred, then images emerged one after another.
After looking, Liu Ming was stunned!
In the giant mirror, a giant island with gray mist appeared. It was a savage and desolate place.
2 huge ships were parked on the edge of the island, and 2 groups of people were fighting on the shore.
A group of prisoners were dressed in animal skins and held simple weapons made of animal bones. The other group seemed to be soldiers who wore armor and had better equipment.
The battle was going on fiercely. As time passed, the prisoner side gradually overwhelmed the soldiers due to their large numbers.
“This is… Deadly Island…” Liu Ming’s expression changed. Among the fiercely fighting crowd, a thin young man held a green steel dagger and killed one after another soldier.
The boy, who still had a childish face, and always had an indifferent look. The tragic fight didn’t seem to affect his expression at all.
Liu Ming had a strange feeling when seeing the boy in the mirror.
The images in the mirror changed rapidly, and scenes of distant memories emerged clearly.
Escape from the Deadly Island, join the Savage Ghost Sect, advanced to the Spirit Master, Sea Creature Clan battle, being captured in the South Sea Region, stranded in the Middle Sky Continent, joined the Taiqing Sect…
The images in the mirror seemed to have reproduced all his experiences since his birth to the present. It even showed the scene where he was demonized for the first time and then possessed by the demonic will. The deeper the memory, the clearer the image in the mirror.
Liu Ming’s eyes twitched a few times. He glanced at Yin Liu secretly.
Almost all of his previous experiences were reflected in the mirror, so his identity as a human was completely exposed. He did not know how Yin Liu would react.
However, everything about Luo Hu and the mysterious bubble was not shown in the mirror. Luo Hu must have hidden them, which made Liu Ming feel a lot more at ease.
The images in the mirror changed rapidly. Finally, it was fixed at the moment when Liu Ming came into the deepest underworld.
The gray mirror was rippling again. All the images dissipated, and a figure of Liu Ming reappeared.
In the mirror, Liu Ming suddenly had a strange smile. He walked out of the mirror and stood a few meters away from Liu Ming.
Liu Ming’s face changed slightly. The person on the opposite side was exactly the same regardless of the clothing, appearance and aura.
“The power of this Chaos Past Lives Array is that it can detect all the information of the cultivator in the array, then it will create a phantasm with the same strength. The hardest person to beat is yourself.” Luo Hu’s voice sounded, then he remained silent again.
Hearing this, Liu Ming stared at “Liu Ming” opposite with a squint.
TL: Facing himself who had the same strength? Can it copy spiritual pets and weapons too?
