“Mr. Liu, quickly cast your defenses. We have fallen into an illusion. If we don’t do anything, we will be slaughtered!” Seeing Liu Ming’s current state, Qing Gu reminded loudly.
Before Qing Gu could finish his sentence, a giant gray blade struck from above.
The red scarlet silk around him shook violently. Several red silks were cut off by the giant gray blade at once.
However, the giant gray blade also shook and shattered, dissipating into a wave of gray light.
Qing Gu had no time to care about Liu Ming. He launched symbols to stabilize the red silks around him. However, the aura of the red silks was much weaker than before.
Before he could relax, the surrounding space was filled with light. 5 identical giant gray blades appeared and slashed at Qing Gu with a piercing sound.
Qing Gu was startled. He once again released the purple jade ruler and channeled spiritual power into it wildly. The jade ruler became crystal clear and radiant.
Immediately afterward, clusters of purple flames splashed out and condensed into a purple flame ball. It covered him imperviously.
The giant gray blades struck the purple flame ball.
There was a series of loud impacts. The purple flame ball tumbled violently, but the giant gray blades were all resisted.
Liu Ming glanced at Qing Gu indifferently. He flew forward for a short distance before stopping.
Liu Ming glanced at his left and right, and he raised his hand. A faint black and white light radiated from his palm.
At this moment, a dark green arm emerged behind him. The arm had bulging veins and sharp black claws, which looked like a devil’s hand.
As soon as the arm appeared, it silently grabbed the sea of consciousness in Liu Ming’s abdomen.
Liu Ming did not turn his head back as if he didn’t realize it. When the arm approached his body, a set of silver fleshy armor emerged.
The dark green arm didn’t stop at all. It forcibly pierced into the silver armor with black lights on its fingertips.
There was a muffled “poof“!
The silver armor was pierced through like paper. The dark green arm pierced through Liu Ming’s body. The bloody hand was holding the black and white real pellet.
The dark green hand clenched tightly. Snap. It crushed the black and white real pellet.
Liu Ming turned his head sideways, and his eyes widened in disbelief, He spat a mouthful of blood, his aura quickly weakened, and his head dropped down without moving.
Qing Gu tried his best to resist the gray light attack that appeared constantly around him. When he saw Liu Ming’s situation, he was astounded with a hint of despair in his eyes.
A figure appeared behind Liu Ming. It was the hooked nose man. He looked at Liu Ming who was hanging on his arm with a cruel smile.
“Hehe. Falling into my domain and still daring to be so arrogant. Try to block my ghost hawk claw with just a set of mere fleshy armor? You really deserve to die.” The hooked nose man said mockingly.
“Really?” Liu Ming’s drooping head suddenly raised at this moment. His neck turned half a circle as if it had no bones, and he looked at the hooked nose man.
“Your illusion is nothing. Do you think I can’t even see through this mere illusion?” Liu Ming’s mouth was still stained with blood, but his voice was completely different. It was Mo Tian’s voice.
“You…” The hooked nose man’s expression changed greatly upon seeing this scene. As soon as he heard Mo Tian’s voice, a look of extreme horror appeared in his eyes.
He roared and tried to pull his arm away from Liu Ming’s body.
However, as soon as he exerted force, Liu Ming’s body seemed to be cast on his arm. He couldn’t pull his hand out at all.
There was a strange smile on Liu Ming’s face. His body turned into a cloud of black air and drifted away. In front of the hooked nose man was a black and white stone tablet as tall as a person. The hooked nose man had pierced his arm into the Illusive Demonic Pupil on the stone tablet.
“Celestial Tablet!” The hooked nose man immediately uttered a terrified voice when he saw the Celestial Tablet. A hint of ruthlessness flashed in his eyes. He turned his other hand into a palm blade and slashed the arm that pierced into the Illusive Demonic Pupil.
“It’s too late!” A cold voice came. A black flame burst out from the Illusive Demonic Pupil, burning the hooked nose man.
There was a light sound. The black demonic flame burst and engulfed the hooked nose mans.
The hooked nose man’s body collapsed in the flames without making a scream.
In a blink of an eye, Liu Ming appeared next to the Celestial Tablet and launched a symbol into it. The Celestial Tablet shrank rapidly and landed in his hand.
Qing Gu, who saw this scene from the side, was dumbstruck. A beastkin cultivator at the Celestial State peak stage was defeated so easily.
After the hooked nose man died, the surrounding illusion shattered like a mirror. The vision of Liu Ming and Qing Gu was blurred, and they returned to the vicinity of the black valley.
In front of the two of them, a gray escape light was flying away into the distance. In the escape light, the face of the woman in a gray robe was filled with fear.
“It’s too late to flee now.” Liu Ming snorted. The Celestial Tablet in his hand shone brightly and a gray-white domain expanded, covering a radius of a hundred miles in an instant.
3 magic weapon emblems appeared on the Celestial Tablet. The area of the
Illusive Demonic Domain expanded several times.
As soon as the woman in a gray robe was shrouded by the Illusive Demonic Domain, a look of confusion appeared in her eyes. Her body trembled violently with a painful expression.
Liu Ming slapped the sword pouch on his waist. The pale golden Void Sword Maru flew out, and turned into a 300 meters giant golden sword, and slashed at her neck.
At the same time, Liu Ming waved both hands. 6 Mountain River Pearls emerged, transfigured into 6 30 meters tall mountains, and smashed at the woman in a gray robe.
The woman in a gray robe was worthy of being the cultivator at the peak of the Celestial State. Now that the power of the Illusive Demonic Domain had increased greatly, she still hadn’t completely lost her sanity. A gray light flashed on her body. A giant python phantasm aspect flew out to protect her body.
However, that was all she could do. The next moment, she was swarmed by the overwhelming golden sword qi and huge yellow mountains.
After loud rumbles, the woman in a gray robe fell on the ground limply. A big hole was punctured in the sea of consciousness. The wound was covered with sword marks.
As soon as the woman in a gray robe fell, the Black Star Moths that had been wandering not far away uttered a burst of chirps and disappeared into the forest.
Liu Ming launched several symbols. The Illusive Demonic Domain flickered a few times and turned back into the black and white light, which returned the Celestial Tablet.
He launched a few more symbols to put away the Mountain River Pearls, the Void Sword Maru, and the Celestial Tablet. His face was a little pale.
This series of fights consumed most of his spiritual power, especially the illusion, he cast secretly with the Celestial Tablet to counter the hooked nose man, had consumed a huge amount of his mental power.
All in all, Mo Tian had planted enchantments in these 2 beastkins. Since they had Mo Tian’s blood in their bodies, Mo Tian obviously knew their every move.
Liu Ming consumed a few elixirs, then his face looked better.
Qing Gu stood aside with a complex expression, looking at Liu Ming in awe. He wanted to say something, but he was a little afraid to speak.
Liu Ming slowly channeled the Hell Bone Secret on his own to refine the elixirs in his body. After the spiritual power in the sea of consciousness slowly recovered, he exhaled lightly and looked at Qing Gu.
Qing Gu’s complexion changed slightly, feeling a little uneasy in his mind.
Since the valley looming in the distance was guarded by these 2 beastkins, there must be a great secret hidden in it. If Liu Ming wanted to kill Qing Gu to silence him, he had no power to resist.
“Elder Qing Gu, don’t think too much. You and I are both elders of the Qing Family. I have no ill intentions. I was able to kill these 2 beastkins thanks to Elder Qing Gu fighting side by side with me.” Liu Ming said with a smile.
With Liu Ming’s smile, the atmosphere immediately relaxed.
“I don’t dare to take your merit. Elder Liu killed these 2 beastkins on your own. I didn’t do much at all.” Qing Gu smiled cautiously.
“It’s fine. We can skip the pleasantries. Let’s be direct. The valley below may hide a lot of secrets, so I’ll need Elder Qing Gu and Xie’er to guard here. I will go in to investigate myself. What do you think?” Liu Ming said directly.
“Sure, I have sustained some injuries, so I’m going to recuperate here. Elder Liu, feel free to explore the valley. Maybe there is Heavenly Illusion Power Seed in it.” Qing Gu nodded quickly.
Liu Ming glanced at Qing Gu meaningfully. The small silver scorpion that had been lying on his shoulder jumped down and turned into a girl in black tulle.
“Master, just leave it to me.” Xie’er said to Liu Ming through voice transmission.
Liu Ming nodded to Xie’er, then he flew away in a black light.
Qing Gu glanced at Xie’er in surprise, then he walked to the side and sat down cross-legged. After a while, traces of red lights appeared on him.
Liu Ming flew toward the valley. Along the way, apart from encountering a few demonic beasts, he didn’t encounter any trouble.
These demonic beasts were at the Real Pellet State at most, so they were naturally not Liu Ming’s enemies and got defeated swiftly.
It was just that the closer the distance to the valley, the stronger the gravitational force coming from the ground. After traveling for less than 10 miles, the gravitational force was more than 10 times stronger.
Even Liu Ming became extremely slow when flying.
After half an hour, a mountain range covered in dark clouds appeared clearly in front of Liu Ming.
Under Mo Tian’s guidance, Liu Ming flew straight into the black mist without thinking much. He arrived at a circular valley where black mist shrouded the area. The demonic qi was dense.
What was quite peculiar was that despite the thick demonic qi in this valley, no demonic beast was found here.
Occasionally, some demonic beast passed by this area, but they suddenly turned around and avoided this valley far away when they were still hundreds of miles away.
