An inconspicuous green blade light appeared and circled around its neck at lightning speed.
The demon corpse guard let out a strange roar, and it jumped to the side. As a result, just half way through its jump, its head fell off its neck. The heavy body fell to the ground, twitched a few times, and stopped moving.
The green blade light turned back into the small green blade and returned to Liu Ming’s hand.
Liu Ming breathed a sigh of relief. The black phantasm aspect turned into black air and submerged into his body.
Seeing this, Zhao Qianying and Ouyang Ming also heaved a sigh of relief. They withdrew their phantasm aspect and flew down to Liu Ming’s side.
“I didn’t expect these 2 demon corpse guards to be much more powerful than the ancient demon corpse I encountered before.” Zhao Qianying glanced at the headless demon corpse, then at the demon in the distance whose forehead was pierced through by Liu Ming. She said with a slight frown.
“These demon corpse guards are extremely resilient… I just saw Mr. Liu cut off the black vine behind the demon corpse. Could it be because of that thing?” Ouyang Ming looked at Liu Ming with a frown.
Liu Ming nodded thoughtfully, walked to the severed black vine on the ground, and squatted down.
The other end of the vine was submerged into the ground of the main hall. The black liquid was still slowly oozing from the severed vine. It looked abnormally viscous.
“What the hell is this?” Zhao Qianying and Ouyang Ming also came over. Ouyang Ming asked after looking at the black vine.
“By the way, this thing is somewhat similar to the branch of the black strange tree we encountered in front of the cemetery…” Zhao Qianying said suddenly.
Ouyang Ming was startled, then he nodded.
“If I’m not mistaken, this should also be the tentacles of Shadowroot, but how do they connect to these black demon corpses? The demon corpse was powerful because these tentacles secretly provided the demon corpse with demonic qi. If we don’t cut off the tentacle first, I’m afraid these demon corpses can’t be killed at all.” Liu Ming was silent for a long time, then he said slowly.
Ouyang Ming and Zhao Qianying were shocked. Although they had seen the black tentacle attached to the demon corpse, they were already in a tough battle against the demon corpse. How did they have time for that?
“I see…” Zhao Qianying nodded. When she was about to say something, the black tentacle that was lying limp on the ground raised like a snake.
“Back off!” Liu Ming tapped his feed and moved back instantly.
Zhao Qianying and Ouyang Ming also moved back in shock.
However, the black tentacle seemed to have no interest in the three of them at all. It swayed slightly in mid-air as if it was sensing something.
At the same time, the same thing happened to another tentacle that was cut off by Liu Ming not far away.
The 2 black tentacles suddenly inserted into the bodies of the 2 dead demon corpses.
Liu Ming seemed to think of something suddenly.
After the black tentacles were inserted into the demon corpses, a black mist immediately wrapped around the demon corpse.
In the black mist, the defeated demon corpse guards twitched suddenly.
“Get into the entrance now. The demon corpses may be revived soon.” Liu Ming flew upstairs toward the entrance.
While speeding fast, he smiled wryly in his mind.
When he first entered the hall, he had a question in his mind.
The Liu Family had entered the Demon Abyss Tower earlier than them. Since there was nothing to discover on the first floor, they should have gone to the second floor.
But why did the Liu Family leave behind 2 demon corpses after they passed through here? It turned out that this demon corpse could be resurrected infinitely by the tentacles of Shadowroot.
After hearing Liu Ming’s reminder, the other 2 immediately realized this and hurriedly followed up.
After a while, they flew into the entrance one after another.
Before flying into the tunnel entrance, Liu Ming looked back and saw that the demon corpse whose head was pierced through had stood up. Faint black light emerged on its neck as tissues were forming.
The next moment, his vision blurred. When he could see again, he found himself in a black hall.
The 3 breathed a sigh of relief but soon looked around vigilantly.
They encountered 2 powerful demon corpses on the first floor. Who knows what powerful creatures were guarding the second floor?
The hall they were in was extremely wide and tall. It had an area of thousands of meters and a height of 90 meters. It was built with a strange black stone, and the surrounding walls were also exceptionally smooth.
There were many round stone pillars erected in the main hall, and some runes were marked on the stone pillars.
In addition, there seemed to be some new debris and potholes on the ground. There were also remains of some white bones scattered on the ground.
Other than these, there seemed to be no danger here, which made them relieved.
“This is the second floor? But it looks like an assembly hall.” Ouyang Ming looked around and said so.
“It seems that people from the Liu Family have passed through here just now, and they fought against a human form skeleton.” Liu Ming stepped forward, picked up a white skeleton, examined it, and said lightly.
“The Liu Family didn’t deliberately remove the breath traces. They are heading in that direction.” Zhao Qianying closed her eyes and sensed for a moment, then she pointed in one direction.
There were more than a dozen tunnels on the walls at the 4 ends of the hall, which seem to lead to different locations. Zhao Qianying was pointing at one of the seemingly ordinary tunnels.
“Well, then let’s go and have a look.” Liu Ming was delighted. He couldn’t use Divine Thought to sense here, so he couldn’t feel the traces left by the Liu Family, but Zhao Qianying had that little yellow beast with excellent sensing ability.
The other 2 didn’t say much, and they flew into that tunnel.
The tunnel here was built with a kind of green stone. It was as tall as the main hall, but the width was only a few meters, giving people a very depressing feeling.
The tunnel was quite long. They slowed down their pace due to potential traps, so it took them about 15 minutes to reach the end.
At the end of the tunnel was a stone chamber tens of meters in size. In the center of the stone chamber was a stone platform in the shape of an altar. There was a stone door on the top of the altar, emitting a faint black light. It should be the entrance.
There were also many traces of battle on the altar. The skeletons scattered around. The Liu Family must have killed the skeleton guards here and gone to the third floor.
“We actually found this entrance to the third floor without encountering any danger!” Liu Ming was happy, then he was about to fly above the altar.
However, when he was about to fly, he looked at Zhao Qianying and Ouyang Ming who were standing aside, and he stopped.
“Is there anything bothering you 2?” Liu Ming asked when he saw that they looked hesitant and didn’t move.
“Mr. Liu, I’m sorry. Can you can stay here for a while? There are more than a dozen tunnels in this hall. I want to check them all one by one. Maybe I can find the clues about the Heaven Earth Thunder Ring.” Ouyang Ming hesitated for a moment before speaking.
Liu Ming’s eyes flashed when he heard this.
“I also want to stay here for a while. Just like Mr. Ouyang, maybe there is something I want here.” Zhao Qianying also spoke to Liu Ming apologetically.
“I’m the one who was impatient. Your goals are different from mine, so you can act freely.” Liu Ming said with a slight smile.
The other 2 thanked Liu Ming in joy.
“Then Mr. Liu, please wait here for a while, we will check out the other tunnels. Fortunately, the area here is not big, we should be able to explore all of them soon.” Ouyang Ming said with a happy face. Zhao Qianying also nodded.
“I’ll go with you guys too. There may be other dangers here. It’s safer for the 3 of us act together.” Liu Ming said.
“Thank you, Mr. Liu.” They were relieved to have the powerhouse Liu Ming coming along.
They returned to the lobby, then they discussed and walked into another tunnel.
This tunnel was similar to the one they entered just now. There was no abnormality along the way.
As a result, after walking for hundreds of meters, the tunnel suddenly turned a corner, and they came to an end here. A dark stone chamber suddenly appeared in front of it. It was so dark that it was impossible to see the situation clearly.
At this moment, their feet sank slightly, then there was a click from the stone chamber. Before the three of them could react, green light dots appeared in the stone chamber, then hundreds of golden lights shot toward them overwhelmingly.
They hurriedly activated their defenses.
Liu Ming was wearing the Thunder Zein Gauze. He waved the sleeve without moving. Golden light arcs emerged around him, looking like a thunder god. He moved and blocked in front.
There was a burst of clanging sounds. The golden lights turned out to be golden arrows. Liu Ming who bore the brunt was shot by a dozen arrows, but the arrows were easily deflected by the Thunder Zein Gauze.
These golden arrows were 2 feet long, shiny, and crafted with steel feathers.
Most of the golden arrows hit them. Some of them passed them and hit the walls and the ground, scattering the rocks everywhere.
Liu Ming looked into the darkness ahead.
After the rain of arrows, several clusters of flames ignited in the stone chamber in front, illuminating the space inside.
There were 20 white skeletons in the stone chamber. Their bodies were several meters high. Their eyes were burning with 2 dots of green flames. They were wearing worn-out battle armor, equipped with swords on their waists, and holding white bone crossbows in their hands.
