Seeing that everyone had gone far, Master Yuqing unfolded his sleeves, and a magic circle emitting a pale yellow light opened in an instant, covering all the surrounding area of more than ten meters.
“Well, I have placed an enchantment here, and there is no one else within a thousand meters range. You can tell me anything without worries.” Master Yu Qing said lightly.
Liu Ming didn’t conceal it immediately. He simply talked about Grandmaster Liuyin being stranded in the Sea Region previous year and founded the Savage Ghost Sect, but he couldn’t return to the Middle Sky Continent because of the long journey. Therefore, he had no choice but to spend the rest of his life on Yunchuan Island.
Of course, he also truthfully spoke about the trace of Divine Thought left by Grandmaster Liuyin, and the fact that he obtained the two ancient books from the Wall of Shadows.
The only thing he concealed was the Tai Gang Sword Embryo that Grandmaster Liuyin explained back then. Otherwise, he could not explain everything about the demonic soul and the alternate mind in the mysterious bubble.
Regarding the mysterious bubble, it was absolutely impossible for Liu Ming to reveal anything to outsiders.
After Senior Nun Yu Qing heard that, a look of surprise appeared on her face.
What Liu Ming said was really strange and special. She took out a green jade ruyi from her sleeve after a slight hesitation. There were countless silver runes looming on the surface.
As her finger tapped the jade ruyi, a white light flashed immediately. A cat-like little beast phantasm appeared from the front end of the jade ruyi.
There was a glimmer of light in the little beast’s vague eyes. After taking a cold look at Liu Ming, it went back into the jade ruyi with a soft cry.
Liu Ming felt cold for being glanced at by the little beast as if all his secret was being seen through. At the same time, Liu Ming vaguely felt that the Celestial Tablet in his sea of consciousness seemed to flicker, but it returned to normal in an instant.
After hearing the soft cry of the little beast, Senior Nun Yu Qing glanced at Liu Ming with satisfaction on her face and nodded slightly.
“Senior Yu Qing, what I said is true. There is absolutely no deception. What was that…” Liu Ming felt a little bit of confusion in his mind at the moment.
“It’s not a big deal. The little beast phantasm just now is the essence of a strange beast. It was sealed in jade ruyi by sacrificial refining. It can be used to distinguish the true and false statement of anyone.” The woman in white robe put the jade ruyi into her sleeve and explained casually in a few words.
Liu Ming felt relieved when he heard this.
“As for what you said, although I’m the elder of the Miaoyin Nunnery, I don’t know much about the Taiqing Sect. I have never heard of the name Liuyin as well. Moreover, this matter is too strange, so I can’t really make a decision. I can only send Mr. Liu to the Taiqing Sect to let the elders decide on this matter. It depends on you whether this is a blessing or disaster.” As Senior Nun Yu Qing said, she put her hands together and chanted Amitabha softly.
Liu Ming smiled bitterly in his heart. How could he refuse this? He could only nod and accept this.
Three days later, all the guests and hall masters of the Changfeng Association were gathering in the headquarters. The scene looked very peaceful. They were obviously celebrating the victory in the gambling battle.
At this moment, Feng Zhan was sitting in the main seat, and the two people at both sides were Liu Ming and Xin Yuan.
“Although some unexpected circumstances occurred in this gambling battle, it is an indisputable fact that I Changfeng Association won in the end. The two guests, Liu Ming and Xin Yuan contributed to the victory this time. I have promised to give 300,000 spirit stones to those who participate in it. If we win the gambling fight, the participants can even get a treasure from the treasury. Later, you two can follow me to get it.” Feng Zhan said with a hearty smile on his face, but he did not mention anything about Wei Zhong at all. He waved his sleeve, and two bags of spirit stones flew to Liu Ming and Xin Yuan.
“Thank you, President Feng.” Xin Yuan took the bag in one hand. He checked it with his mental power, then he immediately cupped his fist and replied delightedly.
After Liu Ming took the bag, he also cupped his fist.
“Mr. Liu went through four rounds of competition this time and finally settled the victory. It was not easy. It was a great contribution, so Mr. Liu can choose two more treasures from the treasury.”
As soon as this statement came out, many deputies, disciples and high rank guests around were startled. Then, they all cast an envy gaze toward Liu Ming.
This time Liu Ming’s victory not only let the Changfeng Association assert dominance among many sects in the South Sea Region, but also increased the reputation of Feng Zhan.
Besides, the Five Spirits Sect was also quite satisfied with the result of this gambling battle.
On the day of the gambling, Feng Zhan also secretly promised that if Liu Ming wins, he would give two more treasures. The public announcement at this time also showed his clear attitude of reward and punishment.
Half an hour later, as soon as the main hall door opened, Feng Zhan walked out first, followed by Liu Ming and Xin Yuan behind him.
The three of them then walked into a very quiet side hall not far away.
The decoration in the hall was very elegant. A young woman in white robe was sitting in front of the door.
It was the Miaoyin Nunnery’s Senior Nun Yu Qing that they saw at the Valley of Fire that day!
“Senior Yu Qing, please wait a moment. I will take Guest Liu to the treasury to choose a few treasures as a reward, then he can go with you.” Feng Zhan stepped forward and said respectfully to the woman in white robe.
The woman in white robe nodded softly when she heard the words, then she closed her eyes to rest.
Feng Zhan then informed the maid to make tea for the nun, then he turned around and took Liu Ming and Xin Yuan out of the side hall, walking straight to the back of the main hall.
The three of them passed a long corridor and came to a small door behind the main hall. After entering the door, they walked down a secret passage for a while before appearing in front of a carved jade door.
“President Feng, this treasury is just behind the main hall, and it is unguarded. Don’t you worry that something will go wrong?” Xin Yuan asked with some doubts.
“Guest Xin doesn’t know that this treasury is forged by a forge master. The treasury itself is an extremely sturdy spiritual weapon. If someone wants to break in, he will trigger the enchantment and get himself trapped.” Feng Zhan replied with a smile.
He patted his waist, and a small crystal jade appeared in his hand. He then shot the jade into a groove in the carved jade door.
He launched a symbol into the jade as well!
The carved jade door suddenly began to vibrate, and a green light flashed on the gate, making a rumbling sound.
After a few seconds, the door of the treasury slowly opened.
Then, Feng Zhan walked in with Liu Ming and Xin Yuan.
As soon as the three of them stepped into the treasury, the door behind them closed on their own.
Although the treasury wasn’t huge, it had a width of several hundreds of meters. It was separated into six areas by light walls. Each area had a row of storage shelves. The shelves were stacked with jade boxes of different sizes and colors.
Liu Ming roughly calculated that there were more than three to four hundred treasures in the Changfeng Association’s treasury.
“You two don’t have to be polite. Just choose at will. The treasures suitable for Physique Cultivator are in that area.” Feng Zhan saw that the faces of the two were awkward. They looked like they didn’t know how to start, so he pointed to the area surrounded by the blue light wall.
“Thanks President Feng.” As soon as Xin Yuan thanked him, he walked quickly to the blue area and picked up a jade box. After opening it, he found that it was a small dark lock. After injecting a little spiritual power into it, the small lock transformed into a black armor.
“This is a black chain armor. It is made of thousands of years of black iron. It contains 19 layers of enchantment. It is an upper grade spiritual weapon.” Feng Zhan looked at the item in Xin Yuan’s hands and explained.
Xin Yuan nodded when he heard the words. He withdrew his spiritual power as if he wasn’t satisfied with it, and he put back the item that returned to a small lock into the jade box. After that, he began to choose again.
Liu Ming came here for a purpose. He was not here for spiritual weapons, but to find the “Void Bamboo”.
As he glanced around, his gaze stayed in the deepest part of the treasury surrounded by a colorful light wall.
There were only six white jade boxes of different lengths in this area.
Liu Ming walked to the storage shelf. He waved one hand and took one jade box in his hand. He opened it, and a dazzling colorful light shone from the jade box.
After the light disappeared, Liu Ming looked down at the jade box and found that it was a five-color ore. The ore was crystal clear, and the five colors of red, yellow, blue, green and purple were emitted by the refraction of the light in the room. It looked very wonderful.
Then Liu Ming opened the remaining jade boxes one by one. When he opened the fifth jade box, he suddenly found a section of silver bamboo covered with five-color spirit patterns lying quietly in the box.
Liu Ming was overjoyed, knowing that this object was the Void Bamboo, but he still remained calm as he closed the box and put it back.
About half an hour later, when Liu Ming finally selected two more treasures, he returned to this area seemingly at random and took the box containing the Void Bamboo in his hand.
When he returned to the door with three jade boxes in his hand, Xin Yuan was discussing something with Feng Zhan while holding a black jade box in his hand.
“Brother Liu has been picking for so long, what treasures did you find?” Xin Yuan asked Liu Ming with a smile.
“I didn’t find any suitable spiritual weapon, so I just picked a few seemingly extraordinary materials. I’m going to find someone to forge me a spiritual weapon when I get to the Middle Sky Continent.” Liu Ming naturally did not mention Void Bamboo, so he brushed it off.
Xin Yuan didn’t ask too much. After opening the jade box in his hand, it contained three black pills.
“I chose these three Husha Pills. I heard President Feng said that this pill can not only improve physical fitness, but it also has the effect of enhancing the purity of spiritual power, which was of great benefit to the advancement of Physique Cultivator. When I go out, I will start cultivating behind closed-doors to break through to the later stage.” Xin Yuan smiled and said to Liu Ming like he got a precious treasure.
Feng Zhan on the side just glanced at the jade box in Liu Ming’s hand, then he nodded and said, “Since you two have finished choosing the treasures, then we should leave.” As Feng Zhan said, he left the treasury with them.
In a side hall of the Changfeng Association, Senior Nun Yu Qing was meditating with her eyes closed. She still didn’t touch the spiritual tea beside her at all.
Suddenly, the door was opened. It was Feng Zhan bringing Liu Ming and Xin Yuan back to this place again.
“Liu Ming, since the matter here is over, you can leave with me.” The woman in white robe opened her eyes and stood up as she said lightly.
