“I see. It seems that I really have some false hopes. However, the next time this mysterious space draws spiritual power, I still hope that senior will inform me. In this way, junior can also make some preparations in advance.” As Liu Ming heard, he was of course disappointed. He laughed bitterly , then he thanked and said so.
“There is still one and a half year before the next absorption of spiritual power. But with your current spiritual power, as long as you use some of your lifespan, you should be able to satisfy the requirement.” Luo Hu heard the words and looked at Liu Ming coldly. After a while, he answered somewhat bluntly.
Hearing that it was only one and a half years and he even had to use his lifespan, his heart trembled. When he wanted to ask something more, Luo Hu suddenly said “someone is outside”, and he flicked his sleeves.
Liu Ming only felt a “boom” from his sea of consciousness and his vision became blurred. When he opened his eyes again, he realized that he had returned to his room.
At this moment, there was a knock on the door. After he calmed his mind, he got down from the bed and walked over to open the wooden door.
Jia Lan, dressed in a light yellow shirt, stood outside the door.
Liu Ming’s face was naturally full of surprise. After hesitating for a while, he turned sideway to let her in.
But the first words the woman said as she came in made his expression change.
“Mr. Liu, have you and I met before?”
Liu Ming looked at this woman’s exquisite face, and he actually didn’t know how to answer for a while.
After Jia Lan spoke, she just looked at Liu Ming silently; she didn’t speak the second sentence.
After thinking about it for a moment, Liu Ming still sighed and talked about the incidents that they both joined the Savage Ghost Sect at the same time, she was a mixed-blood Sea Creature Clan, the battle between Sea Creature Clan, and she was caught by Siren King.
As a result, Jia Lan looked uncertain for a while after hearing these words; she was in a trance for a moment. She turned around without saying a word.
This behavior of Jia Lan naturally made Liu Ming puzzled. After thinking about it for a long time, he found nothing.
At the same time, inside the hall of a mountain in Taiqing Sect.
“What, there is the news of Liu Yin who disappeared thousands of years ago?” A white-faced man in his thirties said with a look of surprise.
Wearing a green robe and a sapphire crown, this person swat in the center on the main seat of the main hall, playing with a green bead in his hand.
“This news is true. If Ms. Yu Qing of the Miaoyin Nunnery didn’t bring this news to us, who would have thought that this esoteric disciple was actually stranded in such a remote place. He even founded a small sect on his own.” A boy who looked thirteen years old in a gray robe with fine facial features said in a tone of an elder.
The boy took out a jade slip from his sleeve and threw it over.
The white-faced taoist reached out his hand to take the jade slip, then he put it on his forehead. He released his Divine Thought to check it.
Seeing this, the boy in gray robe continued,
“Well, Senior Fellow Apprentice Lu, I have carefully read the archives of our sect. Thousands of years ago, the esoteric disciple was accidentally carried away by a space storm and went missing when carrying out a high rank trial mission in the sect. However, his trace of soul fire had never been extinguished, so his name has never been erased from our sect. Until hundreds of years ago, the soul fire was gone, so his identity as an esoteric disciple was canceled, and it was replaced by another disciple.”
When the boy said this, he sighed and continued, “According to the time when Liuyin became an esoteric disciple and the comments that the sect gave him, if he was successful like the other esoteric disciples, he would most likely be our master’s junior; he might even join the Tianluo Hall.”
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Hao Yue, since Liuyin failed the trial that year, it means that he was not good enough. There is no “if” in our sect. As for such news, Ms. Yu Qing just has to inform us under normal circumstances. But you came here personally, is there something that you can’t handle.” The white-faced man looked at the jade slip in his hand and said slowly.
“Senior fellow apprentice is really smart. Ms. Yu Qing mentioned that the reason why she found out his identity Savage Ghost Sect was actually because this person has learned the Tiger Dragon Hell Prison of our sect. According to sect regulations, this technique can only be learned by the inner disciple. According to the inquiry of Ms. Yu Qing, this brat named Liu Ming seems to have learned the Tai Gang Sword Tactics.” The boy looked solemn as he talked about this.
“This actually happened! Tai Gang Sword Tactics is no better than Tiger Dragon Hell Prison, but this can only be learned by the esoteric disciple. Since this Liu Ming is the disciple of the esoteric disciple, Liu Yin, I’m afraid that many master’s seniors and master’s juniors of the Supreme Palace will notice this. If we don’t handle this matter properly, we would be laughed at in the sect. I think we should summon Liu Ming tomorrow to see him personally.” The white-faced man was startled when he heard the words, and he pondered for a long time.
“Senior fellow apprentice is still quite thoughtful. Tomorrow I will summon Liuyin’s disciple to meet us.” The boy nodded.
In the early morning of the next day, Liu Ming already got a visitor when he woke up. It was a young man in green clothes. He looked like twenty years old, but his aura was profound. He should be at the later stage of the Condensation Period.
Seeing this, Liu Ming felt a little shock.
He initially thought that he was so talented in Yunchuan Continent to be able to get to the Condensation Period intermediate stage at his age, but since he came to Taiqing Sect, this little sense of superiority had long disappeared.
The youth had a cold expression. After slightly explaining his intentions, he took Liu Ming on a shuttle-shaped craft and flew away.
Not long after, the two came to the tall mountain not far away.
This Emerald Cloud Peak was a hundred thousand feet high. Layers of white mist could be seen from the middle of the mountain. Looking from afar, the mountain was verdant and lush. This was a rare blessed spirit mountain.
From the foot of the mountain, there were some two or three-story pavilion and cave houses from time to time. On the top of the mountain was a wide platform of more than ten acres, all of which were made of gray stones. It was clean and tidy.
At the center of the platform, there was a huge cauldron furnace of tens of meters high. Its surface was covered with mysterious lines, and plumes of white smoke rose up, giving it a sense of ethereal.
The platform was surrounded by several tall halls on three sides. In the middle was a magnificent hall of a thousand meters tall; the left side was a row of green buildings of various height; the right was a row of wood houses of similar styles which seemed to be used by low rank disciples.
Liu Ming looked at all this silently, not showing any expression on his face, which made the man in green clothes take a different look at him.
Not long after, Liu Ming walked into the middle hall under the lead of the man.
“Report to the hall master, I have brought Liu Ming here.” The young man respectfully bowed to the two in the hall and said respectfully.
Liu Ming hurriedly saluted. He glanced at the two in the hall and lowered his head slightly.
“Okay, you can go down first.” The white-faced man on the main seat waved his hand, and the young man in green clothes saluted again and stepped out respectfully.
The white-faced man looked Liu Ming up and down, smiled slightly, and said, “You should be Liu Ming right. I received the news some time ago. I heard that you are disciple of the Savage Ghost Sect founded by Liuyin who was our sect’s disciple. This is Emerald Cloud Peak of the Taiqing Sect. The man beside me, Taoist Hao Yue and I are the hall master of this peak. Liuyin also came from the Emerald Cloud Peak back then, so you and this peak are also considered to be related.”
Liu Ming was shocked when he heard this. On the way to Taiqing Sect, Senior Nun Yu Qing also said something about Taiqing Sect. This white-faced man and the boy next to him were actually the hall master of this peak, then they must be Real Pellet State powerhouses. They might even be at the intermediate or later stage. They could be considered as high ranking people in the Taiqing Sect.
“Yes, I’m Liu Ming. Greetings to two seniors.” Liu Ming said hurriedly and respectfully.
“Today, we summoned you, it is for nothing else, we just want you to illustrate the matter about Liuyin. and there is nothing else. I just want to hear you say it again. Please tell me as much detail as possible.” Seeing Liu Ming in fear and trepidation, the boy smiled lightly.
Liu Ming’s thoughts turned quickly. He faintly guessed the intentions of these two people. It was nothing more than that they didn’t believe the words of Senior Nun Yu Qing very much, and they wanted him to say it again. They of course had some mystic arts that could determine the truth of what he said.
At this point, Liu Ming was worried about the mysterious bubble and Celestial Tablet in his body, but when he thought that Luo Hu was there, his mind was a little settled. He immediately repeated what he had said to Senior Nun Yu Qing.
While listening, the white-faced man picked up the teacup and took a sip of the tea. He took out a palm-size white bead in his palm, which was emitting a faint halo.
As Liu Ming began to tell everything, the halo on the bead began to spin.
In the space where the mysterious bubble was located, Luo Hu was sitting quietly cross-legged in the air. Suddenly, his eyes were condensed. He looked at the Celestial Tablet in the air, sighed gently, and a symbol was launched.
Liu Ming only felt that the Celestial Tablet shook slightly in the Spiritual Sea, but it settled down in an instant. He couldn’t help sighing secretly.
The white-faced man looked at the bead in his palm, and the halo that flowed in it had not changed. He nodded in satisfaction at the moment, and he sent a voice transmission to the boy beside him,
“What this man said is true. He seems to be the disciple of Liuyin. Seeing that he can get to the Condensation Period intermediate stage at such an age, he should be fairly talented.”
“Senior fellow apprentice is right. Since this person has learned the Tai Gang Sword Tactics, if his qualifications are not bad, we might as well let him join our Emerald Cloud Peak and become our inner disciple. After all, he is the disciple of Liuyin, so he is also considered as half of our disciple. It is okay to spend some effort to let him grow.” The boy nodded secretly, and replied.
After the two of them discussed, the boy smiled slightly and said to Liu Ming,
“It turned out to be like this. Since you are the disciple of Liuyin, it must be fate that brought you to Taiqing Sect. But if you want to join Taiqing Sect, it still depends on your qualifications.”
“Yes, junior will follow the arrangement of the two hall masters.” Liu Ming was first happy when he heard the words. If he could join Taiqing Sect, this was what he wished for. But when he heard that it still depended on his qualification, his heart turned cold. He had to force himself to reply that.
