In the huge pit, the earthworm Hellish-Insect seemed to be a little confused at the moment. It shook its head a few times, then it was about to get up. However, a gigantic bone prison descended from the sky and covered it at once.
The earthworm Hellish-Insect was furious. Its giant body grew larger again amidst the gray light. The meat fingers waved frantically, forcing open the bone prison.
At this moment, a gigantic yellow mountain slammed from above its head. The bottom of the mountain peak burst into yellow lights, and circles of yellow halo spread out.
Before the giant mountain landed, an extremely heavy spiritual pressure had already affected the earthworm Hellish-Insect. It felt suffocated, and its body became extremely heavy.
The earthworm Hellish-Insect was startled. It burst into gray light, and an aspect phantasm that looked like itself. The aspect phantasm spurted a thick gray light beam at the bottom of the yellow mountain.
There was an earth-shattering loud noise!
In the fierce collision of gray light and yellow light, a circular air wave visible to the naked eye spread in all directions.
Kun Yu, Long Yanfei and others were Real Pellet State cultivators, so they didn’t take any damage in this air wave. They just staggered left and right.
The rest of the Crystallization Period cultivators spurted blood under this air wave, and they got pushed away.
The giant mountain transformed by the Mountain River Pearl trembled slightly, and the falling momentum stopped abruptly.
But the earthworm Hellish-Insect also let out a painful howl, then its body flashed with a gray light. The meat fibers were separated from its body, launching at Liu Ming overwhelmingly.
Liu Ming squinted. Black air rolled out and condensed into a bone shield amidst a series of crackling sounds. He waved his hand, and his body emitted a dazzling bloody light, which condensed into a bloody light shield. Lastly, a layer of silver leather armor appeared and covered all parts of his body.
As soon as Liu Ming finished these, the meat fibers hit the bone shield heavily.
The bone shield only persisted for half a second before collapsing into black air. The dozen meat fibers went through the black air unabated and hit the bloody light shield behind.
The bloody light shield shone brightly and trembled violently, but Liu Ming had stored so much blood essence in the bloody shield over the years, so it could still barely hold on despite taking such a huge damage.
In the end, after the bloody light shield was dimmed, the meat fibers exhausted their strength and fell down powerlessly one after another.
Only then did Liu Ming heave a sigh of relief. He launched symbols and spurted blood into the yellow mountain below.
The yellow mountain suddenly burst into light, and numerous black long river phantasms emerged around the mountain.
The black lights and yellow lights shone one after another, and the yellow mountain enlarged and slowly pressed down the aspect phantasm of the earthworm Hellish-Insect.
The earthworm Hellish-Insect showed disbelief in its eyes. As the aspect phantasm continued to be pressed by the giant mountain, it finally dissipated.
With a loud noise, the earthworm Hellish-Insect was completely pressed under by the yellow mountain.
Liu Ming quickly chanted and launched symbols. The yellow mountain released waves of yellow light, covering a radius of hundreds of meters around.
For a time, the earth attribute within hundreds of meters was as impregnable as a fortress.
After the earthworm Hellish-Insect struggled under the giant mountain for a while, it finally became silent.
Liu Ming let out a long breath, then he flew down.
After the earthworm Hellish-Insect was suppressed by the Mountain River Pearls, the gray fibers wrapped around Kun Yu and the others were also broken. After they regained their freedom, they all looked at Liu Ming with horror. No one could speak for a moment.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu, I haven’t seen you for decades. I can’t believe that your strength has reached this level. Even Celestial State Hellish-Insect is no match for you.” Long Yanfei and Liu Ming were old acquaintances, so she looked up and down at Liu Ming before breaking the silence with a complicated expression.
“Senior Sister Apprentice Long has overpraised. If you guys didn’t restrain this Hellish-Insect, I won’t get it so easily.” Liu Ming said.
Hearing this, Long Yanfei, Kun Yu and others blushed.
In the battle just now, from the beginning to the end, Liu Ming was fighting against this Celestial State Hellish-Insect independently. If Liu Ming hadn’t made a move, several people would have been killed by it.
Shangguan Yanyu looked at Liu Ming with shock in his eyes, and there was a hint of fear.
On the way here, he also felt resentful because Liu Ming snatched the opportunity to be promoted to esoteric discipline, and he almost went into conflict with Liu Ming. If Ling Yiyi didn’t stop him, he would definitely humiliate himself and lose face in front of everyone.
When he thought of this, he glanced at Ling Yiyi who was not far away, and he couldn’t help feeling a little warm in his heart.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu is really outstanding. I heard that in the battle of Sunset Peak, you faced the Celestial State Hellish-Insect alone. I still can’t believe it. Now that I saw it with my own eyes, you really lived up to your reputation.” Kun Yu just forced a smile.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Kun has overpraised. If you hadn’t been injured, this Celestial State early stage Hellish-Insect won’t be able to deal with you as well.” Liu Ming said with a slight smile.
When Kun Yu heard this, his face looked a little better.
Seeing that Liu Ming had subdued the earthworm Hellish-Insect, the Taiqing Sect disciples and Ye Family’s cultivators flew over in the distance. All of them looked shocked.
Jia Lan stood among the crowd, looking at Liu Ming with bright eyes.
“Taiqing Sect disciples really have great powers, but how should we deal with this Hellish-Insect?” Ye Family Master glanced at the giant yellow mountain at the side and said in awe…
Liu Ming also looked at the yellow mountain with a contemplative face.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu. Although this Celestial State Hellish-Insect has been suppressed now, it’s better to get rid of it. Lest it causes more danger.” Kun Yu said so.
Long Yanfei also nodded repeatedly. Her flying sword was still in the Hellish-Insect’s belly. It would be bad if the spirituality was polluted by the corrosive gas in its belly.
“Okay!” Liu Ming nodded.
Now the Hellish-Insect was suppressed under the giant mountain. Once he moved away from the mountain, it would definitely break free and escape. It seemed that he had to use another mean to directly kill it.
At this moment, the originally stable yellow mountain suddenly trembled, and the yellow light on the ground shook violently.
The others were startled.
Before Liu Ming had time to do anything, there was an earth-shattering loud noise from the ground. The ground with a radius of hundreds of meters sank suddenly, then it burst apart again.
There seemed to be something exploding underground!
The yellow light of the yellow mountain was torn apart. The entire mountain was tilted away by the explosion. A gray shadow shot out from the bottom of the mountain and escaped toward the distance.
The gray shadow was indeed the earthworm Hellish-Insect, but for some reason, its huge body had shrunk a lot.
A purple sword light emerged and carried Liu Ming to chase the earthworm Hellish-Insect.
At the same time, the yellow mountain flashed and turned back into 12 beads, following Liu Ming.
Before everyone could react to this sudden change, Liu Ming adn the earthworm Hellish-Insect had already disappeared into the distance.
With a sharp whistle, Long Yanfei transformed into a green light and chased after him.
Shangguan Yanyu and Ling Yiyi were about to catch up, but Kun Yu stretched out his hand to stop the two of them.
“The Celestial State Hellish-Insect exploded its real pellet to break free from it. Right now, its strength should be greatly reduced, so Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu and Junior Sister Apprentice Long are enough to deal with it. Let’s destroy the Hellish-Insect in the mineral vein first. This is our mission of this trip.” Kun Yu said slowly.
Just now when everyone had a fierce battle with the earthworm Hellish-Insect, the violent spiritual power fluctuations had already been spread out.
The Hellish-Insect at the mineral vein should also sense the defeat of the earthworm Hellish-Insect, so they were in chaos. This was a great opportunity to exterminate them.
Shangguan Yanyu and Ling Yiyi looked at each other with a hint of joy in their eyes.
The main credit for this mission is Liu Ming’s, but if they wiped out this group of Hellish-Insects, they would still earn credit.
Immediately, Kun Yu led the disciples of the Taiqing Sect and the cultivators of the Ye Family and rushed toward the mineral vein.
On the other side, Liu Ming and the earthworm Hellish-Insect were chasing each other one after the other.
This Celestial State Hellish-Insect blew up its own real pellet, so the spiritual pressure emitted had already plummeted to the Real Pellet State, but at this moment its body was covered with a layer of gray flames. Its escape speed was beyond his expectations.
At this moment, Liu Ming had already boosted the sword flying with Beast Armor Tactic, but he still couldn’t catch up.
In the blink of an eye, they had already traveled thousands of miles.
A trace of coldness flashed in Liu Ming’s eyes. Chasing like this was not an option. Although the strength of the opponent had been greatly reduced, if he continued chasing it, who knows what would happen?
He had already refined the Cicada Crystal Wings bestowed by Grand Elder Xuan Yu. Now was just a good time to test its power.
As soon as he thought of this, he kept away the silver wings on his back, replaced by a pair of translucent wings about the size of 3 meters.
“This is the Cicada Crystal Wings…”
Liu Ming’s eyes flickered slightly. At this moment, there was also a pair of emerald green wings floating in his sea of consciousness. Strands of faint green flames were burning on them.
When his real pellet channeled a stream of pure spiritual power into the emerald green wings, and the green cicada wings behind him flapped.
His whole body instantly became blurred, and he had moved for hundreds of meters.
Seeing this, Liu Ming immediately revealed an expression of ecstasy. This escape speed was several times faster than before.
The only regret was that when the Cicada Crystal Wings were activated, the burning flames on the crystal wings in the sea of consciousness instantly become several times stronger. The emerald green crystal wings were slowly shrinking at a speed that was imperceptible to the naked eye.
According to this burning speed, these Cicada Crystal Wings really couldn’t be used for a long time!
