“Hehe, pretty quick! I could kill all of you just now. Now it will just take some effort! By the way, Yao Ji, I haven’t seen you for a long time, I didn’t expect you to be even more charming. Aunt Mei is so envious.” Hu Mei said with a coquettish smile. Her voice could even numb one’s bones.
“Hu Mei, why did you betray our clan! Mother was kind to you, and she did everything she could to help you successfully advance to the Mystic Comprehending State. Now that you repay favor with enmity, aren’t you afraid of being recoiled by your seven emotion and mind demon and dying horribly in the future?” Yao Ji took a deep breath and said coldly.
“Hehe, even now, you still want to shake my mind with words? In terms of comprehension of the Seven Emotions Tactic of our clan, not to mention you, even your mother was far behind me. Today I will teach you on behalf of your mother, the last stage of the Seven Emotions Tactic is forgetting emotions. Love, hatred, good and evil are just fleeting emotions. As long as my mind isn’t moved, the mind demon will naturally have no room to take advantage of!” Hu Mei’s face suddenly became cold. The charming look on her face was swept away.
“Love, hatred, good and evil are just fleeting emotions …” Hearing these words, Liu Ming felt a sense of enlightenment in his heart. His eyes were also in a trance, but the next moment, his eyes instantly regained their clarity.
“What a powerful illusion. People can fall into it unknowingly just by words.” Liu Ming was horrified.
At this moment, a pink giant claw phantasm was already on top of his head at some point. Streams of red lights wrapped around phantasm and clawed down toward his head.
Liu Ming let out a loud shout and spurted a black light beam at the pink claw, slowing its falling momentum. Simultaneously, he made a gesture and burst into golden light. A golden aspect emerged, crossed its armed, and blocked the giant pink claw.
Then he turned around, made a sword gesture, and shot a purple sword ligth above Yao Ji.
The figure of Hu Mei’s avatar appeared in a flash and was about to grab Yao Ji’s head.
The eyes of the two daughters Yao Ji and Ye Tianmei were clouded, obviously still caught in the illusion.
The surface of the Bitter Wheel Sword was entwined with purple lightning arcs. It shone and turned into a giant sword. It blocked on top of Yao Ji before the attack landed. The purple lightning arcs on the sword even struck Hu Mei Avatar.
Hu Mei Avatar snorted and burst into pink light. The 5 fingers in red lights penetrated deep into the purple sword light, ignoring the incoming purple lightning arcs.
“Ka“, the purple sword light dissipated immediately. Hu Mei Avatar grabbed a two-foot-long purple flying sword in her hand.
The flying sword struggled like a fish, but it was futile.
Hu Mei rubbed her hands together vigorously, and the Bitter Wheel Sword was broken in half. The aura on it suddenly dimmed.
Although the Bitter Wheel Sword was only a superb spiritual weapon, Liu Ming had used this sword for many years, so it was like his own arm. It just got destroyed unexpectedly today.
But there was no trace of regret on his face. Instead, taking advantage of this gap, a puff of black air enveloped the bodies of Yao Ji and Ye Tianmei and pulled them over. He launched 2 symbols into the bodies of Yao Ji and Ye Tianmei.
The two women’s bodies shook as they immediately regained their sanity.
Ye Tianmei was alright, but Yao Ji’s face turned pale for a while. She looked at Hu Mei in disbelief.
“Your illusion has reached such a profound realm? You can make people fall into an endless nightmare with just a casual move. No, this is impossible…”
Hu Mei Avatar smiled and didn’t answer. A huge wave of pink light surged out from her and condensed into a gigantic fox phantasm with 8 tails waving lightly behind.
Yao Ji took a deep breath. She showed a determined look, and a pink light glowed on her body too, condensing into a huge fox aspect with 9 tails behind.
Although Yao Ji’s phantasm aspect had 1 more tail than Hu Mei’s, there was a big gap between the size of aspect phantasms and the strength of spiritual power fluctuations.
Seeing this scene, Hu Mei’s eyes flashed, then she smiled faintly.
“Liu Ming… I’m very grateful that you can come to see me at this time, but these are matters of our Sky Fox Race. It has nothing to do with you. You should take this friend of Blood Vine Race and leave first. ” Yao Ji took a deep look at Liu Ming and said hurriedly.
Hearing this, Ye Tianmei took a few glances at Yao Ji’s peerless face, but she didn’t speak.
“You’re the princess of the Sky Fox Race. If you also die here too, the Sky Fox Race lineage will really fall into the hands of Hu Mei.” Liu Ming said lightly as he blocked in front of Yao Ji.
Hu Mei’s eyes flickered, showing a solemn look on her face.
Although the human cultivator in front of her was only at the Celestial State early stage, she somehow had a feeling of couldn’t see through him. This made her feel a little more scrupulous.
“Wait, this Hu Mei is just an avatar, but it’s not something you and I can fight with.” Yao Ji’s expression changed, and she said hastily.
“Don’t worry, if she came here in real body, I might have no choice but to run away. However, against just a mere avatar, I’m still somewhat confident. Besides, I have some grievances with this woman to settle.” Liu Ming said calmly.
Yao Ji was startled when she heard this.
“Master’s Junior… Ye too, please back off a bit first.” Liu Ming turned around and said to Ye Tianmei.
Yao Ji was surprised when she heard Liu Ming’s words.
But before she could ask any more questions, a burst of thick black air suddenly appeared on Liu Ming’s body. With him as the center, an unstoppable black vortex emerged. A domineering spiritual power fluctuation spread violently.
Yao Ji and Ye Tianmei were suddenly pushed far away by a soft force. They only stabilized their bodies only after being pushed hundreds of meters away.
They women looked at Liu Ming who was in the center of the vortex with a look of horror in their eyes.
“How bold! Then I want to see how capable you, a human cultivator at the Celestial State early stage, can be.” Seeing this, Hu Mei snorted.
The eight-tailed fox aspect behind her suddenly grew larger. The 8 tails instantly became solid. As the 8 tails moved, they disappeared without a trace.
The next moment, the space around Liu Ming fluctuated. The 8 tails suddenly emerged with afterimages and wrapped around Liu Ming like tentacles.
Before Liu Ming could react, he was wrapped by 8 tails.
A smug smile suddenly appeared on Hu Mei’s face. She clasped her hands together, forming a weird gesture.
The 8 tails shone brightly and formed a huge ball. They wriggled and squeezed toward the inside.
“Liu Ming…” Seeing this scene, Yao Ji’s complexion changed drastically. She was about to fly toward him.
“Wait a minute! Liu Ming always has deep thoughts and never speaks lightly. Since he said so, he must have his own plans.” Ye Tianmei stopped in front of Yao Ji and said calmly.
Yao Ji’s face changed, and she stopped immediately.
Right now, the ball formed by Hu Mei’s 8 tails suddenly stopped shrinking. Instead, it began to expand outward.
There seemed to be a huge and incomparable force acting outward, and glaring black lights shot out from the gaps of the tails.
Chi Chi Chi!
In the air, a few black claw lights with black flames emerged. The 8 tails spread out and got cut off from the middle.
Hu Mei’s complexion changed drastically. Behind her, the light of the fox aspect trembled for a while. It dimmed a lot, seeming to suffer considerable damage.
She waved, and the phantasm aspect returned to her body.
Liu Ming’s body slowly emerged, but at this moment, his body had become larger. Purple demonic patterns appeared on his body. His body was wrapped in rolling demonic flames. Fine black scales grew on his skin. His fingers were like iron hooks. The claw light was launched by his claws.
The powerful demon qi spread in all directions.
“True demon qi!” Hu Mei’s expression changed drastically.
Yao Ji was joyful to see Liu Ming breaking out of the confinement, but when she saw Liu Ming’s current state, she was also startled.
On the contrary, Ye Tianmei showed a hint of astonishment briefly before regaining her composure.
“Who are you?” Hu Mei asked sharply.
Liu Ming didn’t seem to hear Hu Mei’s questioning. He just moved his body on his own.
After entering the Celestial State, it was his first time using the demonized form. His body was still a little uncomfortable with this powerful force.
A flash of anger flashed across Hu Mei’s face. She pointed and launched a red light stream at Liu Ming.
Liu Ming raised his arm. The purple demonic patterns flashed, and his 5 fingers grabbed toward the red light stream.
Chi Chi Chi!
5 black claw lights emerged like huge sharp blades and shot out toward the light stream in the sky, making an ear-piercing whistle.
In front of the black claw lights, the red light stream was easily broken into several pieces without resistance. It turned out to be a strange-shaped machete.
The black claw lights shot toward Hu Mei with unabated force.
Liu Ming also swung his other hand heavily, but this time 5 thin black lines flew out, making chilling whistles.
Hu Mei was startled. The fox phantasm aspect condensed before her.
However, this fox phantasm aspect was much smaller than before, obviously due to the damage suffered before.
“Poof poof,“, the black claw lines slashed firmly on the fox phantasm aspect, causing ripples.
At this moment, the space behind Hu Mei fluctuated. A black figure emerged like a ghost. It was the Demonized Liu Ming.
Hu Mei was astounded. Before she could turn around, 2 palms covered in scales pierced through her chest.
Her body was pierced by Liu Ming’s hands.
Liu Ming let out a low groan and tore Hu Mei’s body apart forcibly with all his strength.
Hu Mei Avatar was formed by spiritual power without flesh and blood. The 2 halves of the body flashed, turned into 2 broken pieces of jade talisman, and dissipated into countless crystal debris that floated away.
TL: Hu Mei has already reached Mystic Comprehending State though, how can he revenge for Qing Lan?
