Note: Changing Gao He Family to Gaohe Family
Liu Ming narrowed his eyes at the valley below.
Liu Ming had vague memories of this person whom he met at the entrance of the Demon Abyss.
“He is the Mystic Comprehending State elder of the Gaohe Family, Gaohe Yan, who is leading the team of the Gaohe Family.” Zhao Qianying’s voice sounded beside Liu Ming’s ear.
Liu Ming’s heart skipped a beat, and he nodded.
The red escape light in mid-air seemed to realize that it could not escape, and it revealed itself. It was a middle-aged man wearing a red robe with sharp facial features. He held a large red flag in his hand. His face appeared pale, indicating that he might be injured.
Liu Ming had never seen this man before.
Zhao Qianying frowned slightly and shook her head. She didn’t know this man either.
“Gaohe Yan, you don’t have to do this.” The red-robed demon said in a deep voice.
“Brother Lie, why are you so stubborn? Hand over the map, and I won’t stop you from leaving.” Gaohe Yan said calmly.
“Our ancestors of the Lie Family spent countless efforts to obtain this map. As the 4 great families, how dare your Gaohe Family rob me like this?” The red-robed demon shouted.
“Since you’ve said so, I will take your life instead.” Gaohe Yan snorted, then his body was shrouded in black light.
Liu Ming’s eyes flashed. The black light on Gaohe Yan’s body was unusual.
Gaohe Yan rubbed his hands together. The black light around him turned into 8 black pythons tens of meters long and rushed toward the red-robed demon.
The red-robed demon panicked, seeming wary of the black pythons. He swiftly waved the red flag in his hand, casting layers of flame walls around him.
The black pythons pounced at the firewalls without fear and tore them apart directly.
“You’re getting ahead of yourself!”
The red-robed demon spat a mouthful of blood into the red flag.
The red flag burst into flame light. A red-golden dragon pattern appeared on the flag.
The red-robed demon chanted while launching 2 red lights from his palms into the eyes of the dragon pattern.
The red-golden dragon’s eyes lit up. A dragon roar echoed through the sky as it flew out ferociously. A tremendous spiritual pressure emanated from it.
Liu Ming was startled. The spiritual pressure faintly reached the Mystic Comprehending State level.
The secret realm limited the power at the Mystic Comprehending State level to the peak of the Celestial State. However, the red-golden dragon still emitted the pressure at the Mystic Comprehending State level, showcasing how formidable this mystic art was. It would be much stronger if the dragon were unleashed outside the secret realm.
The red-golden dragon swayed, flew forward in a red light, and bit the neck of a black python. With a shake of the dragon head, the neck of the black python was bitten off.
Gaohe Yan frowned, then waved his hands. The remaining black pythons shone with black light and entangled to form a black dragon about the same size as the red-golden dragon.
The black dragon emitted circles of black halos toward the red-golden dragon.
The black dragon and red-golden dragon went into a skirmish. The sound of roaring was deafening.
However, the red-golden dragon had the upper hand, forcing back the black dragon step by step.
“Li Fire Dragon Flag! I remembered this red-robed demon. He is a Mystic Comprehending State powerhouse of the Chi State’s Lie Family, Lie Gu. His fire attribute demonic techniques are very unusual.” Zhao Qianying commented as a shimmer flashed in her enchanting eyes.
“No matter how formidable this person is, it won’t make a difference. His fate toward misfortune is sealed.” Liu Ming said nonchalantly.
Zhao Qianying was taken aback. She cast her gaze into the distance.
The red-robed demon looked anxious. He desperately channeled the flag to force back Gaohe Yan continuously, trying to shake him off and escape.
However, although the black dragon was slightly disadvantaged, it still hindered the red dragon from leaving.
“I have let you escape for tens of thousands of miles. If I let you flee any further, who knows what might happen!? This place has a nice view. It serves as your final resting place just fine.” Gaohe Yan sneered and formed a gesture with both hands.
The black dragon exploded and turned into a black cloud. Gaohe Yan flew into the cloud. Chants of varying pitches came out from the cloud.
The black cloud churned and revealed faint flashes of black lightning.
In the valley, Liu Ming was shocked. A golden light flashed on his chest, and a golden thunder rune emerged: the Heavenly Thunder Spell.
The Heavenly Thunder Spell sensed a mighty power of the same attribute. It unexpectedly emerged on its own.
Liu Ming took a deep look at the black lightning in midair. He waved his hand across his chest, and the activated Heavenly Thunder Spell disappeared immediately.
The red-robed demon was astounded. Since Gaohe Yan seemed to be brewing a mystic art in the black cloud, he should immediately retrieve the red-golden fire dragon and flee away.
However, the red-robed demon did not do so.
He had a strong hunch that if he put away the flag in his hand, he would be killed instantly on the spot.
The red-robed demon spat out a gourd covered with red spirit patterns. The gourd tilted and poured out rolling fire waves, which formed a fiery red light curtain to protect him.
Then, he launched a series of symbols. The red-golden fire dragon flew back, circling above him.
As the red-robed demon finished his preparations, the black lightning in the sky became dazzling to the eye.
A black thunder flashed and struck the head of the red-golden dragon in a blink of an eye.
The red-golden dragon let out a mournful cry. Half of the red-golden dragon’s head disappeared without a trace.
After the cry, the red-golden dragon turned into a red light and returned to the red flag.
Then, the dragon pattern on the flag dimmed, losing its spirituality.
The red-robed demon was shocked. Although he knew that Gaohe Yan’s mystic art was formidable, the fire dragon that constituted half his spiritual power couldn’t withstand a single blow.
Before the red-robed demon could react, a second, thicker black lightning struck.
With a lightning flash, the light curtain formed by the red gourd was quickly torn apart. The lightning blasted the red-robed demon’s flag.
The light of the flag was gone. A several-foot-long hole appeared on it, almost tearing the flag in half.
Boom! Before the second lightning bolt dissipated, the third black lightning bolt immediately struck down.
The red-robed demon didn’t even utter a scream, and his body was enveloped by the black lightning.
When the black lightning dissipated, the upper half of the red-robed demon’s body was gone together with his primordial spirit and real pellet.
The black cloud rolled in mid-air, and the black lightning dissipated.
“This is Gaohe Family’s famous Brahman Saint Mystic Hell Technique. Those who practice this skill rarely use demonic weapons. The Brahman Saint Demonic Qi is ever-changing. The black lightning just now was the Mystic Hell Divine Thunder. Its damage is comparable to Ninth Heaven Divine Thunder.” Zhao Qianying’s voice sounded beside Liu Ming’s ear.
Liu Ming nodded slowly. He chanted, exerting the Che Huan Totem to its maximum capacity.
Gaohe Family Master was proficient at tracking mystic arts. If the family master discovered Liu Ming, they couldn’t possibly fight the five of them.
In mid-air, Gaohe Yan looked at the remaining half of the red-robed demon’s corpse and sneered. As he waved his hand, he cast a black light and took the red pouch in the red-robed demon’s waist.
A black key flew out from the red-robed demon’s corpse. It was the Demon Abyss Key.
The Demon Abyss Key turned into a small black shadow and flew toward the distance quickly.
Seeing this scene, Gaohe Yan looked overjoyed. He manifested a large hand through a layer of black light and grabbed the Demon Abyss Key at lightning speed.
Gaohe Yan was incomparably fast, but he still failed to grab the key. As the Demon Abyss Key blurred, it appeared hundreds of meters away as if it had teleported, avoiding the large black hand.
A few Gaohe Family’s Celestial State demons standing in the distance happened to be in front of the key. Their reactions were not slow. They shot out various lights to intercept the key, but the key blinked away several times, passed through their interception, and disappeared in a flash.
Those Celestial State demons resentfully withdrew their hands. They flew to Gaohe Yan’s side one after another.
“*Elder Yan, why did the Demon Abyss Key leave suddenly? Its speed is astonishing. Could there be someone behind it?” A tall black-robed old man asked.
This person was the Celestial State demon who first arrived at the scene after Liu Ming killed Gaoheye in the Dong Lu Mountain Range. However, the short old man who was with him was absent.
“No one is behind this. According to the family records, after the previous owner of the Demon Abyss Key dies, the key will automatically leave the body and look for the next destined successor. However, we can intercept the Demon Abyss Key if we are quick. I was careless just now. What a pity!” Gaohe Yan shook his head and said regretfully.
In the valley, Liu Ming couldn’t help but ponder upon hearing Gaohe Yan’s words.
“That person is right. Except for the person who receives the Demon Abyss Key from its previous owner voluntarily, the key will automatically leave the body after the owner dies. Judging from the direction the key flew away just now, it should be heading toward the Inner Abyss.” Mo Tian’s voice sounded in Liu Ming’s mind.
Liu Ming frowned and didn’t answer Mo Tian.
In mid-air, after Gaohe Yan sighed, he glanced at the red pouch in his hand with a gleam of joy.
