Liu Ming also realized that some disciples approached a few deputy disciples near the jade disc from time to time, then they left without confusion.
AfterLiu Ming waited for a while, he looked for a gap and walked over when the crowd was getting less.
“Senior fellow apprentice, I have something to ask you.” Liu Ming came to the disciple in duty and asked while cupping his fist.
This person looked like thirty years old. He looked smart and capable, and his eyes looked keen. He was apparently an experienced person.
“Oh, you are an outer fellow disciple, just ask if you have anything.” The smart man was surrounded by a few ordinary disciples, and he was getting impatient for being asked. When he saw Liu Ming’s outer disciple’s costume, his face immediately changed.
“I have just joined this sect not for long, so it’s my first time to come to this Xuan Hall. I hope that senior fellow apprentice can give me some advice.” Liu Ming asked with a slight smile.
“Sure, I have been working in the Xuan Hall for quite some time. If junior doesn’t understand something, you can ask directly.” Sun Shi agreed without thinking.
Liu Ming saw that he was quite forthright, so he raised his doubts just now.
“Oh, it turned out to be like this. To tell you the truth, this is the outer notice. There is still an inner notice in the hall. The missions on it are more dangerous than the outer notice, and the reward is mostly contribution points.
“Since the junior fellow apprentice has already entered our sect, you should have discovered that contribution points are more useful than spirit stones in our Taiqing Sect. Therefore, the difficulty of the missions on the inner notice is much higher. Many missions will have life danger, so ordinary disciples can’t take these missions at all. Only inner disciples and the outer disciples with powerful strength are qualified to take the missions.” The smart man replied quickly after hearing that.
Seeing a hint of realization on Liu Ming’s face, the man continued with a smile.
“Since Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu has just joined our sect, why don’t you take some outer notice’s missions first? It’s good to try it out first. You should wait for a while before trying the inner notice’s missions.”
This Xuan Notice was indeed divided into outer and inner notice, and this Sun Shi repeatedly talked about the dangers of the inner notice’s missions, so he was obviously not trying to scare him off.
However, Liu Ming urgently needed a lot of contribution points at this moment, and the matter of condensing the Sumeru Void Sword Embryo was even more urgent.
After thinking about it in his mind, he still resolutely said, “Thanks senior fellow apprentice for reminding me, but I think that my strength is enough for that. Can senior fellow apprentice tell me how to take the inner notice’s missions?”
The smart man was startled when he heard the words, then he immediately persuaded him a few more words.
Liu Ming would naturally not change his mind.
The smart man was helpless, so he took out a storage amulet and gave it to Liu Ming, then he pointed at a door on the side of the hall and said,
“Since the junior fellow apprentice is so persistent, you can go through this door and change the clothes provided inside. After that, you will see the inner notice. However, you need to go through a test to be qualified for taking inner notice’s missions. I can only tell you so much. Please take care. “After Sun Shi said this, he turned his face and started answering other disciples’ inquiries.
Liu Ming felt slightly surprised, but he still thanked him. He took this storage amulet and walked over.
As soon as he entered the side door, he found a narrow tunnel in front of him.
When Liu Ming tore the storage amulet in his hand, a set of gray hoodies popped out. He quickly wore it, and it covered his body tightly.
Simultaneously, he was surprised to find that this shirt was obviously made of special materials. The surface of the clothes was covered with some kind of weird rune, so his aura wouldn’t leak. His Divine Thought couldn’t be separated from his body as well.
“Taiqing Sect really has a deep background. A set of clothes can easily hide the aura, and the effect is much better than those concealment techniques. It is extremely convenient to use for hiding. It is at least worth tens of thousands of spirit stone in the outside world…” As Liu Ming was feeling surprised, he quickly walked into the depths of the tunnel.
“These new disciples are always immersed in their past glory, thinking that they are special and their strength is the most powerful. When they have the taste of setback, they will know that they are just frogs at the bottom of the well.” The smart man saw Liu Ming disappearing at the door, and he shook his head slightly. He sneered in his mind.
This tunnel was more than a hundred meters long. It was made of green stone. The wall not far away was inlaid with a white fluorite that illuminated the space here.
Because Liu Ming’s Divine Though couldn’t be released, he had to be very careful.
Just now, Sun Shi’s words also faintly mentioned that this road to the inner notice wouldn’t be safe.
Not long after, a concealed door appeared at the end of the tunnel.
Liu Ming took a deep breath, opened the door, and found that it was a dark tunnel.
There was a row of straight down steps at the entrance of the tunnel, it was hard to imagine where it led.
After Liu Ming hesitated, he still walked down.
The tunnel was not long. He came to a row of identical secret rooms not long after.
Some of the doors were closed, and some mysterious and incomprehensible spirit patterns were imprinted on the doors. Liu Ming didn’t think much about it, and walked into one of the open secret rooms.
The secret room was quite wide. It was about a hundred meters in size.
As soon as he stepped in, the door behind him closed silently.
Liu Ming looked around, then he immediately focused his attention on a tall figure that was standing in the secret room.
This was a puppet soldier with the height of a person. Its body was pitch black. Its body seemed to be made of a kind of rock. It looked unusually hard. Its body surface was covered by a layer of red armor. It has two blood-red sharp horns on its head. It had sharp fangs and wide teeth. Its two eyes had two red spots, flickering like two devil flames.
While Liu Ming was observing it, the soldier seemed to sense Liu Ming’s presence. It turned over, making a “click” sound from its body.
Liu Ming was startled. Before he could act, the puppet soldier groaned. Its clumsy body was launched out like a crossbow.
A black shadow flashed, and the puppet soldier charged at Liu Ming like a gust of wind. The next moment, it appeared in front of Liu Ming with its five fingers stretching at Liu Ming’s head.
Liu Ming frowned slightly. He avoided this blow, then he waved his hand simultaneously. A green light flashed, and a door-sized green wind blade was condensed before him.
Liu Ming groaned, then he shook his wrist and launched the giant wind blade. It struck at the back of the puppet soldier with an afterimage behind it.
A burst of red light flashed on the back of the puppet soldier, and it condensed into a light curtain. The wind blade dissipated into light spots as it touched the light curtain.
Liu Ming’s attack just now seemed to have completely angered the soldier. It made a low and deep roar, then its figure blurred again.
A black shadow flashed in the air, and the soldier punched Liu Ming in his head at a faster speed.
At this speed, Liu Ming would not be bothered by it. He evaded again. He made a gesture to condense a cold air around him. It instantly condensed into an icicle of tens of meters.
With a whistling sound, it hit the puppet soldier’ chest in a flash.
A red light flashed, and another layer of light curtain appeared on the puppet, blocking the icicle technique.
The huge icicle burst open as soon as it touched the light wall, but the chill of the icicle still didn’t dissipate. It immediately formed a layer of thick ice on half of the puppet soldier’s body. Its huge body paused for a moment.
Liu Ming’s eyes flickered. He appeared before the puppet soldier in a flash. He had already condensed the black gas into the dragon and tiger that were roaming on his body surface. Amidst the roar of a dragon and a tiger, his punch hit the puppet’s chest.
The puppet soldier’s huge body was blown away by this sudden blow and fell heavily to the ground. The floor of the secret room was shaken with a tremor, and it stirred up a wave of dust.
As soon as the soldier fell to the ground, it flipped over and stood up again as if it wasn’t hurt. There was just a shallow punch mark on its chest that was caused by Liu Ming’s punch.
“This puppet has thick skin and flesh, and there is a rather extraordinary blue spiritual armor on his body. Its resistance to physical attack was almost comparable to the beastkin of the Condensation Period later stage. It was almost the same as the blood locust king beast in the South Sea Region.” Liu Ming couldn’t help but be stunned secretly when he saw this.
At this time, the puppet seemed to have locked Liu Ming’s position again. As its body flashed for a few times, it left traces of black shadow behind it; Liu Ming also began to retreat.
The puppet would naturally not give up. It was chasing Liu Ming in the secret room. Its enormous strength seemed endless. Every move it made had the momentum of killing the opponent immediately.
Liu Ming’s figure swayed like a catkin that waved according to the wind. As he dodged the puppet soldier’s punch, he also began to look up and down at the pupper soldier..
After dodging the puppet soldier’s punch, Liu Ming kicked fiercely at the knee joint of the puppet soldier.
The soldier’s figure stagnated, and its movements were suddenly slow for a moment.
Liu Ming took advantage to release his black bag and twist his body to get close to the puppet soldier. Two Heavy Water Droplets had already appeared in his hands. He combined the two into one.
With the roars of dragon and tiger, Liu Ming’s fist with black light slammed heavily on the puppet soldier’s chest.
A huge force gushed out all of sudden. There was a muffled noise inside the puppet soldier’s chest. A crack opened on the blue armor, and it quickly expanded.
There was a loud noise.
A big hole appeared on the puppet soldier’s chest, and the controlling talisman in its body was exposed to the air. With a “puff“, it collapsed into a burst of white light.
The soldier staggered back several steps, then fell to the ground with a thump as the red light in its eyes dimmed.
