Ouyang Ming’s face turned gloomy and Zhao Qianying frowned after they heard Mo Tian’s words.
“Where is the other teleportation tunnel?” Liu Ming didn’t notice the change in the expression of Zhao Qianying and Ouyang Ming as he asked Mo Tian.
Since there is a teleportation tunnel that can directly lead to the ninth floor, he was naturally unwilling to continue climbing the Demon Abyss Tower floor by floor. After all, it would take time. In addition, they might not be faster than Liu Family.
“Follow me.” Mo Tian said and walked in a certain direction.
Liu Ming followed up, but he stopped abruptly after looking around.
Ouyang Ming and Zhao Qianying did not follow them.
“Sorry, brother Liu, if you 2 want to go directly to the ninth floor of the Demon Abyss Tower, I won’t be able to go with you.” Zhao Qianying looked at Liu Ming and said with clasped fists.
Liu Ming frowned, then he remembered something.
“I have mentioned before that I entered the Demon Abyss Tower not for the treasures here, but for another reason. I must personally investigate all 9 floors of the Demon Abyss Tower so as not to miss any important information.” Zhao Qianying continued.
“Me too. I came here to find the Heaven Earth Thunder Ring. I’m not sure where this treasure is hidden, so it’s better to be on the safe side and search floor by floor.” Ouyang Ming also said the same.
Hearing this, Liu Ming showed a hint of contemplation.
If Zhao Qianying and Ouyang Ming weren’t acting together, he and Mo Tian would be weaker. Another important reason was that he no longer had the Demon Abyss Key, so he might not be able to open the teleportation portal.
Forcing them to take this portal would be too much.
“Senior Mo Tian, why don’t we use the normal portal?” He pondered for a moment, then said to Mo Tian.
“Little girl from the Huangfu Family, is your mother a member of the Zhao Family in Wang State?” Mo Tian ignored Liu Ming, but he suddenly asked Zhao Qianying.
“That’s right.” Zhao Qianying was startled for a moment, then she said.
She had told Liu Ming before that she followed her mother’s surname. Although there were quite a few families with the surname Zhao in the Thousands Demons Continent, the only prominent Zhao Family was the one in Wang State, so she wasn’t too surprised.
“Is your mother’s single name the word Hui?” Mo Tian asked lightly.
Zhao Qianying’s delicate body trembled with a look of astonishment. It took her a while to recover from the shock, but she still couldn’t help asking in surprise.
“How did senior know my mother’s name?”
“You don’t need to ask more about this. Are you here to track the whereabouts of your mother?” Mo Tian waved his hand and continued to ask.
Zhao Qianying was astounded again. She looked at Mo Tian in disbelief, then she asked with some eagerness,
“Senior, who are you? Do you know why my mother suddenly disappeared hundreds of years ago?”
“It doesn’t matter who I’m. I do know something about your mother. You should have gotten the information about the Demon Abyss Tower from some messages left by your mother, but you don’t have to search for her floor by floor. Your mother will not be here. If you want to know about your mother, you just need to go to the ninth floor with me.” Mo Tian said lightly.
Zhao Qianying gradually calmed down. Her expression changed for a while as if she was considering the credibility of Mo Tian’s words.
Liu Ming stood aside without speaking, but he was shocked in his mind.
He already had doubts about Mo Tian’s identity, but now, from the conversation between him and Zhao Qianying, he seemed to find something strange, but he couldn’t say clearly for a while.
At this moment, Zhao Qianying sighed softly and said to Mo Tian,
“In this case, I will trust you once. I hope you will not lie to me.”
Mo Tian sneered, then he looked at Ouyang Ming and continued to say faintly,
“You kid don’t need to bother searching for the Heaven Earth Thunder Ring floor by floor as well. I can tell you right now that the Heaven Earth Thunder Ring is on the ninth floor, but it is not easy for you to obtain this treasure.”
“Really?” Ouyang Ming’s face showed surprise, but he was startled in his mind. He was a little more wary of Mo Tian’s identity.
“Hmph, why would I lie to you juniors? When you all go to the ninth floor, you will know if I’m lying or not..” Mo Tian snorted and said noncommittally.
“Thank you for your guidance, senior. I don’t care about the dangers of obtaining the treasure. If there is no Heaven Earth Thunder Ring, I will lose my mind sooner or later and become a demonic creature. In order to get rid of the demon soul in my body, even if I die here, I’m willing.” Ouyang Ming cupped his fist and said firmly.
Mo Tian glanced at Ouyang Ming with a trace of imperceptible pity, but he didn’t say much.
Liu Ming had been paying attention to the changes in Mo Tian’s expression. Although they were very subtle, he caught them. He glanced at Ouyang Ming and then at Mo Tian while thinking quickly.
“Let’s go.” After Mo Tian said this, he ignored the 3 of them and flew away.
Seeing this, they had no choice but to quickly follow up.
After Mo Tian left the square, he flew straight toward a desert.
Liu Ming glanced around. The Demon Abyss Tower on the fifth floor was also huge in size, almost boundless. It seemed to be bigger than the first floor and fourth floor. He was pondering the purpose of this floor.
They soon flew into this barren desert. In a blink of an eye, the square buildings behind were soon out of sight.
“Senior Mo Tian, is the other teleportation portal you mentioned in the depths of this desert?” After they flew for a quarter of an hour, the surrounding scene changed slightly. Ouyang Ming asked anxiously.
“If it’s too close to that square, wouldn’t the portal be found by other forces? You’ll know when we get there.” Mo Tian said bluntly.
Ouyang Ming smiled wryly and shut his mouth sensibly.
They flew for another hour, and the scenery in front finally changed. It was no longer an endless desert but tall mountains.
Some green vegetation gradually appeared on the mountains, adding more vitality to the scenery.
“I didn’t expect the area of this floor to be so vast.” Zhao Qianying muttered to herself.
They had flown for 30,000 miles, but they still didn’t see the end at all.
“We have arrived. The portal is right below.” Mo Tian suddenly said and dived down.
Liu Ming and others were shocked as they hurriedly followed behind.
After a while, they appeared in the mountains below. There was a black lake with a radius of more than 10 miles among the mountains.
This black lake was no stranger to the few people. It was the same as the water quality of the lake they encountered in the forest maze on the 4th level. The lake water was light black, and some slender fishes could be seen from time to time.
“Senior Mo Tian, do you mean that the teleportation portal is at the bottom of this lake?” Liu Ming looked around for a few times, but he found nothing, so he couldn’t help asking with a somewhat ugly expression.
“Yes. And there is a superb spiritual tree at the bottom of the lake. It bears the ascension fruit, which is very helpful for improving cultivation. This fruit ripens once tens of thousands of years. I picked a few ripe fruits last time I came here. Perhaps another batch has matured now. We can go and have a look.” Mo Tian said lightly.
“Ascension fruit…” Liu Ming was taken aback. He had never heard of this fruit before. Zhao Qianying and Ouyang Ming were also stunned. Obviously, they didn’t know too.
“Ascending Immortal Fruit is an extinct spiritual item in ancient times. You juniors will naturally not know it. You will see it later.” Mo Tian said lightly, then he flew directly into the lake.
Seeing this, Liu Ming and others hurriedly followed.
As soon as they entered the lake, the small silver fishes immediately rushed over one after another. They turned into streaks of silver light and shot from all directions like silver raindrops. The number was countless, and the scene was extremely spectacular.
Liu Ming and others had heard about these stewed needle fishes from Mo Tian long ago, knowing that these small silver fish looked ordinary, but their attack power in the water was extremely amazing. They immediately launched their defensive means.
Ouyang Ming chanted and cast out a black shield which suspended above him. A layer of black crystal light immediately appeared on the shield, enveloping him impeccably.
The surrounding small silver fishes were immediately bounced off by the black light.
Although these stewed needle fishes were good at breaking the spiritual power shield, they couldn’t do anything about the black crystal light around Ouyang Ming’s body.
On the other side, Zhao Qianying put on the red battle armor again, covering herself in a layer of red light.
As soon as those stewed needle fishes touched the red light, they immediately turned into black smoke.
Liu Ming directly released an Immortal Mountain River Pearl to protect himself. No matter how powerful those stewed needle fishes were, they couldn’t possibly break the defense of the Mountain River Pearl.
Mo Tian was the strangest. He only cast a thin layer of black air around his body, but the stewed needle fishes disappeared when they flew into the black air. Ouyang Ming and Zhao Qianying were amazed by the ability.
Liu Ming’s eyes glowed with purple light. He could see clearly that those stewed needle fishes were turned into streams of aura and merged with the black air around Mo Tian, making the black air thicker.
Although the changes brought about by each stewed needle fish were extremely small, If there were thousands of them, it was still a considerable buff.
Liu Ming was startled slightly. He had seen a similar situation in the fourth floor before, and he couldn’t help being wary of Mo Tian’s ability.
Although there were a lot of stewed needle fishes in this lake, with their means, the fishes were all cleaned up quickly.
TL: Sounds like Mo Tian was being possessed by an ancient demon soul before…
