Although Liu Ming had expected it, he still felt that the blood in his body became a little boiled up. At the same time, under the constant collision of the meridians after the wood attribute spirit had filled them up, there was a burst of tearing pain as if his body was being cut continuously by countless knives.
Liu Ming, who was wrapped in the extremely strong wood attribute spirit, began to show a trace of pain on his face. His forehead was covered in sweat.
He groaned and made a gesture. Black gas started to roll out from his body. After a crackling sound, his body size enlarged. His four limbs were tremblings, and thick blue veins appeared under his skin.
The spiritual power in Liu Ming’s body flowed several times faster in an instant. Under his guidance, the spirit accumulated in the body continued to merge into the Spiritual Sea, turning into traces of spiritual power. After a few circulations, his body and meridians were already slowly adapting to the spirit concentration here.
“What a rich wood spirit. The usual Condensation State cultivator would either explode or be possessed by the wood spirit if he is too careless.” Liu Ming muttered to himself as he breathed out.
He had the blessing of Tiger Dragon Hell Prison, so his body was far stronger than the normal cultivator. He could adapt to the fifth level spirit cave immediately, but if it was the fourth level spirit cave, he probably couldn’t handle it easily.
Liu Ming calmed his mind and scanned the environment in the cave.
This cave was obviously not built with ordinary stones. The surrounding stone walls, including the ground, were dark green, and there were some mysterious spirit patterns on them, which were flashing with a faint light. Liu Ming found out that these stone walls were made of high quality wood attribute crystal stone.
The cave was surrounded by this kind of stone walls on all sides. There was only the light from above. It seemed to connect to the outside world, but it seemed to be separated by an invisible barrier.
Except for a futon in the corner, there were no furnishings.
Seeing this situation, Liu Ming immediately sat cross-legged and began to adjust his breath with his eyes closed.
After half an hour.
Liu Ming opened his eyes, his pupils flashed with green light. He then turned his hand and took out the Void Bamboo Out of the Sumeru Snail and placed it in front of him.
As soon as this bamboo appeared, it caused the surrounding wood attribute spirit to tumble. The spirit surged into the bamboo, causing the spirit patterns to flicker. It looked a bit more solid than the outside world.
But Liu Ming’s face was rather solemn. After taking a deep breath, he stretched out a finger to tap at the silvery bamboo.
Suddenly, the Void Bamboo, which was a length of a ruler, immediately floated up to his chest.
Liu Ming quickly made a few gestures, then he spurted a few green mist. The mist all went into the Void Bamboo.
As soon as the five-color spirit patterns on the surface of the silver bamboo shone, the spirit patterns began to wriggle on their own.
Seeing this, Liu Ming began to chant. Black gas kept tumbling out from his body. His gestures changed quickly as he launched a series of mysterious symbols at the bamboo one after another, and let it rotate slowly…
One day later.
At this time, the Void Bamboo floating in front of Liu Ming had become somewhat transparent, and the wriggling of the five-color spirit patterns on its surface had also become blurred.
Liu Ming suddenly shook his sleeves and took out a white jade porcelain vase. He waved and the emerald green elixir flew into his mouth, then the speed of wood attribute spirit accumulating suddenly accelerated a bit.
He changed the gestures in his hand again. In the transparent bamboo that was spinning, a transparent tiny silver silk slowly appeared in it. Under the wrap of the wood attribute spirit, it merged into his body like smoke.
In Liu Ming’s dantian, with the continuous influx of transparent silver silk, some of the extremely weak sword qi remaining from the broken Tai Gang Sword Embryo began to slowly gather. It condensed into a broken sword phantasm.
When Liu Ming saw this situation, he immediately divided the mental power into several strands as written on the Tai Gang Sword Tactics. He carefully controlled the flow of the spiritual power in the Spiritual Sea to guide the transparent silver silk to continue wrapping the sword phantasm.
As Little sword phantasm touched the silver silk wire, it seemed to feel something. It began to devour the silver silk bit by bit, and every time it swallowed a bit of silver silk , the little sword phantasm became clearer.
With the continuous influx of transparent silver silk, the broken part of the small sword phantasm began to be filled in, and it began to emit silver light.
Six days later, Liu Ming still maintained this posture and gestures in his hand.
The silver bamboo in front of Liu Ming had become a lot bleak, and the silver silk extending from it was a bit thinner than a few days ago.
In the Spiritual Sea, the small silver sword phantasm which was originally clear and silvery, had now become colorful and mottled.
After another five days, the small sword in Liu Ming’s dantian had completely turned into a transparent shape. Only when it turned, the five-color light it reflected could vaguely be seen.
There was a sudden “bang“.
With the last trace of silver silk emerging from the Void Bamboo, the originally silver five-color spiritual bamboo completely turned into a bare green bamboo, and it collapsed in a flash.
Liu Ming still maintained his gesture. He started to control his spiritual power in the Spiritual Sea according to the record on Tai Gang Sword Tactics.
After another two days, he suddenly heard a clear sword sound in the Spiritual Sea, and a looming inch size sword shadow was floating in the Spiritual Sea.
At this moment, Liu Ming’s chant finally stopped. As he scanned his body with his Divine Thought, he revealed a smile.
This Sumeru Sword Embryo was finally condensed. He just had to keep injecting spiritual power in the future.
According to the classics, once the sword embryo spirit was poured into the sword body. After forming the actual spiritual weapon, it could easily catch the enemy off guard.
In this regard, Liu Ming was naturally very satisfied.
The only disadvantage was that this sword embryo was formed using the alternate method, so it took more time to cultivate as compare to the general sword embryo. Moreover, after the power was increased to a certain level, it was more difficult to improve later.
But compared to not being able to cultivate flying sword true spirit and be on the true Sword Cultivator way, this disadvantage was nothing.
Liu Ming consumed a few elixir immediately, and he took out two spirit stones and continued to meditate, restoring his spiritual power.
This continuous condensing for more than ten days had consumed a lot of spiritual power and physical strength. He naturally had to speed up his recovery by using the rich spirit here.
One day later.
As soon as the time limit was hit, Liu Ming suddenly felt the spirit patterns on the surrounding walls flickered. A light array appeared below him out of nowhere. His vision turned blurred, and he appeared in the side hall of the Five Elements Hall.
He was taken aback, and immediately walked out of the side hall, left the Hall of Five Elements, and flew in the direction of Piaohong Courtyard.
Not long after, Liu Ming reappeared in the cave house and fell asleep on his stone bed.
In the past half month, in order to condense the sword embryo, he was exhausted physically and mentally, so he needed a good rest.
But not long after he slept, a sweet woman’s voice suddenly came from outside the cave house,
“Has Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu returned? I’m Long Yanfei from the Piaomiao Peak!”
“What, inner disciple?” Liu Ming was shocked when he heard this. He immediately got up and left the bedroom.
After a while, with a little doubt, he opened the door of the cave house. At the door stood a young woman in a lavender dress. She was eighteen or nineteen years old. She had a tall nose and cherry lips; her face was picturesque.
“Below is Liu Ming, I don’t know if the senior sister apprentice is…” After Liu Ming scanned with Divine Thought, he immediately saw that the other party was at the Condensation Period later stage. She already became an inner disciple in young age. She was clearly a talented person who was welcomed by all the peak master. So, Liu Ming naturally didn’t dare to neglect.
When the woman saw Liu Ming come out, her beautiful eyes flickered. After listening to Liu Ming reporting his name, she immediately smiled and said,
“Great, Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu is here! Do you know that I have ran back and forth to Piaohong Courtyard several times in order to meet you. Speaking of which, junior fellow apprentice and our Silver Spring Valley Family Long are quite related.”
“Sister Long’s words mean…” Liu Ming was naturally startled when he heard the words.
According to rumors, these inner disciples rarely came out. Normal disciples usually couldn’t see them. Now not only she came to him, she even told him this, so he was a little confused.
“I heard that Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu is the disciple of Master Liuyin. Master Liuyin is the ancestor of our Long Family. He was lost overseas due to an accident, so he couldn’t return. Since Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu was the disciple of our ancestor, then you are naturally related to our Long Family.” The woman who claimed to be Long Yanfei said with a sudden smile on her face.
“What, senior sister apprentice is a descendant of Grandmaster Liuyin?” Liu Ming was naturally surprised when he heard this.
The reason why he was able to come to this Taiqing Sect practice today was mostly because he met Grandmaster Liuyin’s Divine Thought by chance, and got the Tiger Dragon Hell Prison and Tai Gang Sword Tactics by chance.
Now that he was able to meet Grandmaster Liuyin’s descendants today, he should give the sword spirit embryo to his descendants according to his original request.
But things went against his will. The sword embryo was first fused with his own sword embryo by soul stealing technique, then he detonated for self-protection during the battle of Bieyuan Island with Siren King.
Therefore, seeing Liuying’s descendant appeared now, Liu Ming still felt a little inexplicably guilty, but fortunately, his complexion didn’t reveal it at all.
At this time, Long Yanfei said again,
“I came here this time due to my grandmother’s request. I want to hear about our ancestor’s situation of wandering in the outland. I also hope that junior fellow apprentice will tell me about it.” The stunning woman said slowly after a moment of hesitation.
