At the same time, a thick blood light appeared on Liu Ming’s body, gradually condensing into an arc-shaped bloody mist around him. The mist was full of bloodshot.
As the bloodshot on the mist contracted, strands of blood essence turned into streams of heat that were injected into the bubble.
After another quarter of an hour, the bloody light around Liu Ming had dimmed a lot. His face also looked a little pale.
In the sea of consciousness, the small crystal bubbles suddenly trembled slightly, and the speed of devouring spiritual power finally slowed down.
Liu Ming was overjoyed. He took out a black jade bottle and removed the talisman on it. A burst of blood air emanated.
Without hesitation, Liu Ming waved 1 hand. A drop of blood red liquid flew out from the bottle into his mouth.
The originally dim bloody light on his body suddenly lit up, then it quickly dimmed at a speed visible to the naked eye.
Just when the bloody mist covering Liu Ming only had 1 layer remaining, the bubble in the sea of consciousness finally stopped devouring.
The next moment, Liu Ming only felt dizziness before appearing in the gray prison space together with Xie’er.
“Phew…” Liu Ming exhaled a long breath in relief.
The amount of spiritual power devoured by the bubble this time was still far beyond his expectations. If he had not made so many preparations in advance, although he would not be sucked dry, he would have lost a lot of lifespans again.
A black light flashed on Xie’er’s body, turning herself into a girl in black tulle.
Her pretty face was pale at the moment, and her figure trembled involuntarily. Even the golden cockscomb mark on her forehead was much dimmer than usual. Her spiritual power was almost exhausted.
“Sorry, Xie’er! I didn’t have time to inform you because of the sudden burst of the bubble, but the opportunity to purify spiritual power is too rare, so I summoned you directly.” Liu Ming said to Xie’er with an apologetic look.
“Master, Xie’er understands.” Xie’er nodded obediently and looked around.
“Why didn’t I see Fei’er?” Xie’er asked strangely.
“Right, you’ve been sleeping in your soul-recovering bag these days. Here is what happened…” Liu Ming briefly told Xie’er about Fei’er being summoned by Fei Zu and stayed in the Tomb of Serene King to train.
“Oh.” Xie’er was naturally surprised after hearing this, and a look of disappointment appeared on her face.
“In short, this time you will stay in this space for a long time, you can cultivate on your own.” Liu Ming instructed.
Xie’er nodded and bowed to Liu Ming before walking to a corner and sat cross-legged.
Liu Ming glanced around in the prison and called out to Luo Hu, but as expected, there was no response at all.
After sighing secretly, he walked over to the Celestial Tablet and sat cross-legged.
He originally wanted to discuss the future cultivation direction with Luo Hu, but now Luo Hu did not respond, he could only follow his own plan.
According to his calculations, he would stay 64 years in this prison space. Such a long time must be used well.
Time flew. More than 20 years had passed unknowingly.
In a pitch-black space, Liu Ming closed his eyes and stood motionless.
Suddenly, a whistling sound came from all directions and billowing black air rushed out. One after another black ghost creatures with horns were condensed. There were more than 100 of them.
These ghost creatures had ferocious faces. As soon as they appeared, they pounced toward Liu Ming in the middle.
The ghost howls had an astonishing vibe.
Liu Ming flicked his sleeve and released a long purple sword.
Then he opened his eyes and tapped at the long sword a few times while chanting.
After a clear whistle, the sword light transfigured into 36 purple sword shadows that rotated above him.
With a low shout.
All the purple sword lights trembled a few times, then they dispersed around with traces of afterimages.
Immediately, within a radius of 300 meters, purple sword lights flickered in all directions.
He actually set up some kind of sword array that shrouded the area.
Immediately afterward, the slashing sounds and ghost howls came from all directions.
All the ghost creatures were turned into wisps of black air by the purple sword lights.
However, the black air was just rolled, and another batch of ghost creatures was condensed once again.
It was endless.
In just a few minutes, the number of ghost creatures defeated by Liu Ming’s sword array was no less than a thousand, and the number was still increasing.
This move was exactly what Liu Ming learned from Tai Gang Sword Tactics. A sword skill that could only be performed by cultivators at the Real Pellet State. It was derived from the original Sword Light Split. It could divide the initial 9 sword lights into 36.
Although it seemed to be the same technique, it was obviously incomparable to the previous 9 sword shadows, especially when dealing with a large number of low rank enemies.
Speaking of which, the sword technique should focus on power and speed that surpassed the cultivators of the same realm, so this Sword Light Split was rather unpopular in Tai Gang Sword Tactics. The mental power requirement was not low. Even a Taiqing Sect’s esoteric disciple obtained this sword technique, he generally would not spend a lot of time on this move.
However, for Liu Ming, he had plenty of time in the mysterious space. Moreover, he had been involved in so many large scale battles in recent years, so he was in need of such a technique that could sweep a large number of low rank cultivators.
After he spent a lot of time comprehending this sword technique, he used another 20 years to completely master it.
Another few years passed.
In a wide cave, Liu Ming, wrapped in black air, was suspended in mid-air.
Below him, bursts of piercing metallic collisions came!
There were about 30 round bone prisons. They were scattered in an orderly manner in the surrounding open space with Liu Ming as the center.
In each bone prison, there was a zombie-like cultivator dressed in the costumes of the 4 major legions in the Evil Ghost Way. They were constantly attacking the bone prisons.
They were the xiao ghosts that Liu Ming met in Evil Ghost Way!
These bone prisons seemed to be very solid, but under the bombardment of these infinitely powerful xiao ghosts, a hole would punch out on it.
However, as soon as the hole appeared, Liu Ming waved 1 hand, and a cloud of black air appeared on the hole and turned into several white bones, fully repairing the bone prison.
This was one of the techniques found in the later half of Hell Bone Secret. Liu Ming could use his yin qi to condense into sturdy white bone, which was effective against these troublesome invulnerable creatures.
Liu Ming looked at these xiao ghosts who were trapped and unable to move, and he smiled slightly in the air.
In the following times, Liu Ming continued to accumulate combat experience through the Illusive Demonic Pupil. When he was free, he would practice the basic five-element spells.
In this way, when facing the enemy, he could instantly blend the five-element spells into the sword controlling technique, achieving twice the result with half the effort.
54 years into the mysterious space.
On this day, Liu Ming was sitting cross-legged motionlessly, seeming to be comprehending something.
At this moment, the space in front of him fluctuated, then a green figure gradually emerged.
Liu Ming opened his eyes, cupped his fist and said in joy,
“Senior Luo Hu!”
The green figure gradually turned into a 14 years old young boy. It was Luo Hu.
“It seems that you have prepared well this time. Originally, I was worried that you would lose your lifespan because of the spiritual power absorption this time.” The young man looked at Liu Ming and said,
“Senior, is the sudden increase in spiritual power absorption this time also because the weapon spirit is about to awaken?” Liu Ming smiled bitterly and asked again.
“Yes, your time is getting less and less. I spent a lot of time trying to prevent it from waking up. Now, I finally put it to sleep. You must also make some other preparations. First, you can try to control the demonization now. Only when you can freely control your body after demonized that you are qualified to refine this weapon spirit.” Luo Hu said after nodding his head.
“What, the demonization can even be controlled? Please give some pointers, senior.” Liu Ming was stunned at first, then he was extremely ecstatic.
“With your current mental power in the Real Pellet State, although you are far from controlling the demonization, you can still try to focus your mind on a certain part of your body. After some attempts, you may be able to affect the part in a short time. In the following time, I will let you enter the Illusive Demonic Pupil every day to practice the control of demonization.” Luo Hu said slowly.
“Junior will do as senior told. Thank you for your guidance.” Liu Ming agreed immediately.
The demonic will inside him had always been a big problem. If one day he could control the demonization, this big problem would naturally disappear. How could he not be surprised and delighted?
“Okay, come with me.” As Luo Hu said, he appeared beside the Celestial Tablet and tapped at the vertical eye pattern on it.
As the Illusive Demonic Pupil spun, Liu Ming felt a buzz in his Divine Thought, then he found himself in a wasteland the next moment.
TL: More demonized form? Hell yeah!
