Seeing this, Liu Ming sighed inwardly and decided not to say anything further.
Liu Ming was interested in the Sky Cry Demon Lord’s tomb. With his strength, even if he was discovered, he would have no problem escaping.
Thinking of this, Liu Ming calmed down. He glanced at the bead in Zhao Qianying’s hand, vaguely sensing an odd vitality contained in this bead.
Zhao Qianying chanted while making a series of mysterious gestures with another hand.
The runes on the yellow bead shone brightly, turning the bead into a cluster of yellow light.
The yellow light quickly faded away. The bead in Zhao Qianying’s hand was gone, replaced by a small yellow beast like a civet with shiny and soft yellow fur. Its big eyes which almost occupied most of the face were gleaming, making it look cute.
Zhao Qianying’s beautiful eyes revealed a doting look. She stroked the little beast’s soft fur with her hand and uttered something softly.
The little civet immediately kicked its hind legs and leaped into the air. Its nose twitched slightly and sniffed around a few times. Strands of seemingly intangible and colorless fluctuations came from where Gaohe Yan and Old Man Jackdaw were originally standing.
Immediately, the little beast fell into Zhao Qianying’s palm again in a flash. Its figure looked extremely light. It murmured softly to Zhao Qianying as if it was saying something.
Zhao Qianying listened attentively as if she could really understand the words of the civet.
After a long while, Zhao Qianying raised her head and glanced at Liu Ming lightly. Seeing his puzzled look, she smiled triumphantly and said.
“I know what you’re wondering. This is the Enneadic Civet. Although its cultivation is only at Condensation State, it is sensitive to demonic qi. It can smell even the slightest trace of demonic qi left in the air. Even those people run to the ends of the world, we can all follow from afar without worrying about being noticed by them.”
“I see!” Liu Ming nodded.
“It’s expected that you don’t know much about this creature. Don’t be fooled by its cute appearance. It has a wild temperament and cannot be tamed by a soul contract. So, don’t even think about it. Well, judging by their speed, they are hundreds of miles away from us now. Let’s go now.” As Zhao Qianying said, she put the civet into the collar, exposing only its furry head. A purple light flashed as she turned into an escape light, flying toward the distance.
“The Truth Hearing Talent is indeed superb. It can even be used like this.” Liu Ming shook his head without commenting anything further. He turned into a black escape light and followed Zhao Qianying.
Liu Ming and Zhao Qianying tailed Gaohe Yan and the others from the distance under the civet’s lead.
Gaohe Yan’s group had taken care of the dangers that lay ahead. Moreover, they were in a rush, ignoring the treasures along the way. Liu Ming and Zhao Qianying got to reap the benefits left behind. As the duo stopped from time to time, they gained rich rewards.
8 days later, 10 people including Gaohe Yan and Old Man Jackdaw stood at the bottom of a gray-white foggy valley at the periphery of the Demon Abyss.
In front of them was a huge cave.
The cave was 90 meters tall. The walls appeared pitch black. Every now and then, gusts of black, chilling wind would blow out from inside, dispersing the nearby gray-white mist.
“According to the map, it should be here.” Gaohe Yan removed the jade slip from his forehead and said slowly.
Gaohe Yan and Old Man Jackdaw stood at the forefront of the group, looking deep into the cave.
The cave led underground, which seemed to be bottomless. Gusts of black, chilling yin wind surged, creating various swirling vortexes of air currents. Faint cries and howls, like the wailing of ghosts and wolves, could be heard from it, making those who heard it dizzy.
“It seems that this place is really not simple. The yin wind inside seems to be the impermanent wind recorded in the ancient books.” Old Man Jackdaw said with a twinkle in his eyes.
“Impermanent wind! Could it be that kind of wind that only appears in places where the yin and yang connect? It’s said that it can cause great damage to the soul.” Gaohe Yan’s eyes flashed, sending his Divine Thoughts into the cave.
As his Divine Thought extended for a few miles, it came into contact with the yin wind in the cave. Immediately, his Divine Thought showed signs of being dissipated. He hurriedly withdrew his Divine Thought in shock.
“It really is the case. My Divine Thought almost got crushed by the yin wind after extending a few miles. If so, we can’t use Divine Thought to detect the surrounding dangers. It is said that the Sky Cry Demon Lord is highly suspicious by nature. There are likely more dangers in his tomb. We have to be cautious after entering the tomb.” Gaohe Yan reminded with a solemn expression.
The members of the Gaohe Family agreed one after another. The 4 Celestial State demons brought by Old Man Jackdaw also nodded solemnly. Various body protection lights shone on their bodies.
They each released a ray of Divine Thought to test the water. The results was as Gaohe Yan said. It could endanger their life so no one dared to be careless.
“You don’t have to worry too much. The impermanent wind here is not very strong. As long as you don’t extend the Divine Thought too far and let it stay close to your sea of consciousness, the impermanent wind will not cause us great harm.” Old Man Jackdaw said in a deep voice.
The people present were slightly relieved by this.
As for not being able to use Divine Thought to detect things around them, as Celestial State powerhouses or even above and they had abundant similar encounters, so they had various ways to detect the surroundings without using Divine Thought.
“Okay, let’s go in now.” Seeing that everyone was getting ready, Gaohe Yan was about to fly into the cave with a single movement.
“Mr. Gaohe, wait a minute. I think it’s better to arrange for someone to guard the entrance. Otherwise, it will be troublesome if other people come here when we are in the cave.” Old Man Jackdaw thought of something before saying.
“That’s right. Mr. Jackdaw is careful and thoughtful. Forgive my carelessness.” Gaohe Yan slapped his forehead and said in embarrassment.
Under the arrangement of the two, the Gaohe Family and the Jackdaw Family each left a Celestial State demon guarding the entrance of the cave.
Immediately afterward, Gaohe Yan and the others released various body protection treasures one after another. They flew into the cave and disappeared in the black yin wind in an instant.
The 2 Celestial State demons that were left to guard the entrance glanced at each other, then they each stood beside the cave, scanning their surroundings vigilantly.
At this moment, in the gray mist tens of miles away from the cave, a cluster of looming green shadow appeared. Liu Ming and Zhao Qianying could be seen in the green shadow.
The civet on Zhao Qianying’s shoulder had already disappeared. She must have kept it away.
With their keen eyes, it only took a moment for the 2 of them to thoroughly survey the surroundings outside the cave.
“It looks like this is the place. Gaohe Yan and the others have already gone in, leaving behind 2 cultivators to secure the entrance.” Zhao Qianying said with a happy face.
Liu Ming looked at the tall cave with flickering eyes and spread out his Divine Thought.
His Divine Thought was far beyond the ordinary Celestial State cultivators, and he was not afraid of being discovered. His Divine Thought quickly spread into the cave.
At this moment, he was slightly startled.
“What’s wrong?” Seeing the change in Liu Ming’s expression, Zhao Qianying hurriedly asked in a low voice. At the same time, a little purple light lit up in her ear as she listened carefully to the surrounding situation.
“It’s fine. It’s not the enemies, but the yin wind in that cave is a bit weird. It can disperse my Divine Thought.” Liu Ming said in a deep voice.
“Weird. What kind of wind is this?” Although Zhao Qianying wanted to test it out, she was not confident that her Divine Thought would be stronger than the 2 Celestial State demons next to the cave, so she did not dare to act rashly.
“It can disperse the Divine Thought… It seems that the wind in that cave should be the impermanent wind.” Mo Tian’s voice emerged again.
Liu Ming’s eyes flashed. After a while, he asked Mo Tian through sound transmission, “Impermanent wind? How much do you know about the impermanent wind?”
“I wouldn’t say I fully know what it is, but I have some clues. The wind has both yin and yang forces, so it is lethal to the soul. However, the impermanent wind only appears at the intersection of the deepest underworld and the outside world. It’s surprising that it appears in the Demon Abyss.” Mo Tian was baffled.
After Liu Ming finished listening to the explanation, he looked in the direction of the cave with a pensive look on his face and said nothing.
“Brother Liu, Gaohe Yan and the others have already entered the cave. How do we get in? Do you have a good plan?” Seeing Liu Ming silent for a long time, Zhao Qianying couldn’t help but feel a little anxious in her heart, so she asked.
Liu Ming frowned when he heard her comments. A trace of hesitation flashed in his eyes.
Liu Ming was unwilling to just leave after following the group to this place. However, the two Celestial State demons at the entrance of the cave were troublesome. Even if Liu Ming could kill them instantly, it was difficult to guarantee that Gaohe Yan and Old Man Jackdaw would not sense their death, which exposed their whereabouts.
“Master, Xie’er has an idea to enter the place.” At this moment, Xie’er’s voice sounded in Liu Ming’s ear.
When Liu Ming heard this, his heart moved.
Next to the cave in the valley, the member of the Gaohe Family left behind was wearing a black robe, with sword-shaped brows on his temples. His appearance was somewhat handsome, and his cultivation had reached the Celestial State intermediate stage. He was carefully observing the movement around him.
Although he did not get to enter the cave with Gaohe Yan, the man with sharp eyebrows did not regret it.
This person had a conservative personality, and there were many dangers in the cave. He might die from unknown danger inside, so he would prefer to stand by outside. Anyway, if Gaohe Yan gained benefits inside, he would get his shares too.
Just as the man with sharp eyebrows was muttering in his mind, there was a faint growl from the gray mist in the distance. It seemed that a demonic beast was quickly approaching this place.
The man with sharp eyebrows was shocked. There was a muffled noise from the surrounding ground, then the mist not far in front of him suddenly split toward the two sides. Countless rocks of various sizes shot toward them.
The other Celestial State demon under Old Man Jackdaw had a serious look on his face. So far, the two of them hadn’t seen what the intruder was.
