“The technique I practice is a bit special. With this hell river water, I can advance twice as fast, so I will keep some spare for emergencies. After all, it is difficult to find this water in the Thousands Demons Continent.” Liu Ming said bluntly as he waved and kept away the 12 Mountain River Pearls.
Zhao Qianying nodded thoughtfully without commenting.
“There seems to be no cave tunnel in front of us. Old Man Jackdaw and the others should have walked along this river.” Liu Ming looked toward the front of the hell river and said so.
The space where this hell river was located was an extremely huge underground tunnel, leading to the distance.
“That should be the case, but… there seemed to be no movement in the few miles ahead.” Zhao Qianying listened attentively for a while, then she said with a slight frown.
“This place should not be far from the destination. Let’s try to be careful in the following journey.” Liu Ming looked around for a while and said.
In the following time, they continued to walk along the hell river slowly.
But at this time, the bone-piercing yin wind blowing from the hell river in front was several times larger than before. Mixing with the cold air of the hell river water, it could almost freeze one’s bones.
Liu Ming was training Hell Bone Secret, and he had stayed in the hell river of the deepest underworld for so many years, so he was immune to it.
Although Zhao Qianying was protected by her armor, she couldn’t take it anymore. Her face turned blue, and her body began to tremble.
However, this woman was quite stubborn. She desperately injected spiritual power into the light red soft armor with a tense face and followed behind Liu Ming silently.
Even so, due to the excessive consumption of spiritual power, this woman couldn’t help but blush, looking out of breath.
Liu Ming seemed to sense something strange behind him, but he didn’t look back. He released black air with his hand casually and cast a spherical barrier around her.
After the yin wind whizzing over touched the barrier, they were actually blocked by the black air on the surface.
Although the yin wind was still swift and violent, Zhao Qianying could barely hold on.
After doing this, Liu Ming continued to walk slowly forward without saying a word.
Zhao Qianying was slightly relieved. She glanced at Liu Ming’s back with a somewhat complicated expression, but she didn’t say anything.
It might be due to the strong yin qi. The corpses of hell beasts here also gradually increased. There were even Celestial State among them.
Judging from the signs at the scene, it was obvious that a fierce fight broke out not long ago.
After walking for about a quarter of an hour, there was a loud roar ahead!
Liu Ming and Zhao Qianying glanced at each other and immediately quickened their pace.
After a while, they came to a huge space.
The end of the cave was connected to an open space, but all they could see was a pitch black hell river.
The river was turbulent. Waves of yin qi rose from it and rolled into the cave one after another, covering the rock wall around the exit with a thick layer of black ice crystals.
The previous blasting sound came from here. It had reached the point of shocking the mind at this moment.
Liu Ming was moved. He immediately slapped his chest. With a flash of green light, he concealed Zhao Qianying and his aura together, then they hid behind a boulder near the exit.
The situation ahead was clear at a glance.
This open space was thousands of meters wide. It was like a gloomy underground world, except for a small circular island in the center that was 3000 meters in size, it was almost filled with the vast hell river water.
The whole circular island was covered by a layer of black light curtain. The surface was cloudy.
In mid-air outside the island, Gaohe Yan and Old Man Jackdaw stood with their hands behind each other, and the other 6 demons surrounded the entire island in the middle. They kept launching various kinds of attacks to blast the black light curtain. The black light curtain was already on the verge of collapse.
A black light flashed in Liu Ming’s eyes. He looked at the small island through the light curtain.
In the center of the small island, there was a cylindrical altar. A hexagonal array with a diameter of 24 meters was slowly rotating while emitting the green fluorescent light.
There was a shriveled corpse in black clothes sitting on the array. It was wrapped in black yin qi. There was a brown leather bag on the corpse’s waist. The head had long been gone. The muscles seemed withered as if the flesh and blood were drained.
Their target was obviously this corpse!
The reason why they hadn’t succeeded so far was that Gaohe Yan and Old Man Jackdaw didn’t make a move. On the other hand, in front of the altar, there were 3 hell beast guardians injecting spiritual power into the black light curtain, barely holding the light curtain from collapsing.
Each of these 3 hell beast guardians exuded a powerful aura of the Celestial State.
The leader was a dark wolf with a body length of 90 meters long. Its body was black and being surrounded by yin qi. It had 3 large heads of the hell wolves. The 6 wolf eyes were glaring at the demons in the air as it kept spurting black mist into the black light curtain.
Judging from the aura, its cultivation had already reached Celestial State the peak. It seemed that if it was not in the Demon Abyss, its cultivation should be more than that.
On the left side was a huge crocodile with 240 meters. It had 2 pairs of wings. It was covered with house-size black scales. It had a 60 meters long big mouth. It was also maintaining the light curtain of the island.
But when Liu Ming glanced at the last hell beast, he was startled suddenly.
This was a man skull with green hair. It had fierce eyes. The aura it exuded was very familiar. It should be none other than Fei’er.
He didn’t expect to meet Fei’er in the Demon Abyss after parting away in the deepest underworld for so many years. His cultivation had even reached the Celestial State early stage.
This made Liu Ming both surprised and delighted, but he didn’t show it on his face. He quickly thought about a plan.
Zhao Qianying beside him was obviously attracted by the fierce battle ahead. It could be due to that she was excited, her slightly pale face looked a little flushed.
At this moment, in mid-air outside the circular island, Gaohe Yan looked down slowly. He suddenly raised his head to look at Old Man Jackdaw not far away and moved his lips slightly.
Old Man Jackdaw understood. He lifted 1 hand and launched 5 thick blue light spears at the black light curtain.
The 5 blue light spears went into the black light curtain without causing any obvious response.
But the next moment, a shocking scene appeared!
Dots of blue light swiftly spread on the black light curtain, covering the entire black light curtain in a few seconds.
The entire black light curtain shattered into dots of blue light.
Losing the light curtain, the entire island was completely exposed in front of Gaohe Yan and others.
Just when the 6 Celestial State demons around were ready to dive down, the huge crocodile, which was lying still, suddenly flew up with a vigorous flap of its wings. A gust of green wind surged upward.
The 6 people were blown backward by a huge force.
At the same time, it spurted a low pitched sound wave that spread in circles.
A deep and earth-shattering roar sounded from the tumbling hell river. Amidst the puffing sounds, hundreds of figures of 24 meters jumped out of the black river water in all directions.
They were small crocodiles with the same black scales and wings.
As soon as these little crocodiles came out, they ran wildly in all directions and spurted black water beams.
Fei’er also turned into 9 clones and mixed into the flying crocodiles, moving toward the 6 demons.
The 6 Celestial State demons changed their targets to the small crocodiles and the Demon Flying Skulls flying toward them.
Most of these small crocodiles were at most Crystallization Period, so they naturally couldn’t withstand the Celestial State demons’ attack. All of a sudden, the corpses of the flying crocodile fell from the air.
However, under the cover of flying crocodiles, the Demon Flying Skulls dealt some minor injuries to the 6 demons successively.
Seeing this, the Old Man Jackdaw chanted with a grim face, then he waved both hands. Blue flying foxes, fire wolves, and crows charged toward the giant crocodile with rolling blue flames.
But the huge crocodile continued to emit sound waves without being bothered. More and more small flying crocodiles were summoned from the hell river to attack the 6 demons.
Suddenly, there was a rumbling sound!
A large blue halo erupted on the back of the huge crocodile, but because of its rough skin and thick flesh, such a shocking attack didn’t deal any substantial damage at all.
There was a stalemate for a while.
At this moment, there was a loud wolf howl!
The three-headed hell wolf finally couldn’t bear it any longer. It opened its 3 mouths and spurted 3 black fire beams. The fire beams merged into a giant fire beam with lingering yin qi and shot toward Gaohe Yan in mid-air.
Wherever the black fire beam passed, large pieces of black ice crystals fell from midair.
TL: What a surprise reunion! But does Fei’er still remember him though?
