“Since senior sister apprentice is the descendant of Grandmaster Liuyin, junior fellow apprentice naturally will obey your command. I came from a place called Yunchuan Island, which belongs to the Sea Region, …” Liu Ming thought about it for a while, then he organized his words and told the same stories, that he hold to the masters of the Piaomiao Peak, to the girl in front of him.
After Long Yanfei listened to it, she showed a thoughtful look. After a while, she said slowly,
“My clan has been searching for the whereabouts of our ancestors for thousands of years. Today, I would like to thank Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu for telling me. This is considered as fulfilling my clan’s wish.”
“Senior sister apprentice doesn’t have to be polite. Senior Liuyin had a great kindness to me, so telling the truth is my duty.” Liu Ming quickly replied.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu is our ancestor’s disciple. Can you please follow me to Family Long in the Silver Spring Valley? Grandmother heard about the matter about ancestor, so she wanted to see Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu in person.” This woman thought about it for a while, then she said with a flickering eyes.
“This is my duty, but I have just joined the Taiqing Sect not for long, and I have some matters to deal with now. Can you wait for a few days? I will visit by then in person.” Liu Ming’s heart shook, but his expression remained calm.
“Alright, then we’ll wait for a while. I will visit again.” Long Yanfei was a little disappointed when she heard the words, but she immediately thought of something and said with a smile.
Liu Ming naturally nodded again and again.
After the two chatted for a few more words, Long Yanfei flew away.
Liu Ming sighed in relief after seeing the woman walking away, then he turned back to the cave house. He paced back and forth in the bedroom several times. After a long period of contemplation, he sighed and continued to fall back to sleep.
Early on the third day, Liu Ming woke up.
For the following time, he went to the sect’s market and purchased a batch of talismans and elixirs needed to cultivate Tiger Dragon Hell Prison. After that, he immediately began to cultivate this technique behind closed-doors.
Now that he had condensed the Sumeru Void Sword embryo, the most important thing at the moment was naturally to enhance his spiritual power as soon as possible.
Now the time limit for the mysterious bubble in his body to absorb spiritual power next time was running out.
However, when Liu Ming was training behind closed-doors, the outer disciples started to spread some rumors about him.
In the outer hall of Xuan Hall.
It was noon at this time. Many disciples gathered here in small groups to choose the outer notice mission. For their future training, they worked hard to accumulate contribution points.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Zhang, have you heard the rumors that everyone is talking about recently?” A somewhat wretched-looking ordinary disciple whispered to the companion beside him.
“Which rumor is it?” Senior Fellow Apprentice Zhang asked while looking at the xuan notice.
“Don’t you know? Tiancan Tongzi, who is ranked more than one hundred on the life and death list of the outer door, was killed. It is said that the person who killed him was only a newcomer outer disciple.” The wretched looking man smiled and said.
“Tiancan Tongzi? Someone could kill this person!” Senior Fellow Apprentice Zhang obviously knew Tiancan Tongzi. He finally took his attention back from the xuan notice and asked quickly.
“Of course, it is true. Yesterday, when I went to Nanpan Mountain for a mission, I heard it personally from Senior Fellow Apprentice Yan. Senior Fellow Apprentice Yan and Senior Sister Apprentice Xue, as well as several other new disciples in the outer courtyard went to the Black Sun Mountain Range to hunt beastkins, and they encountered Tiancan Tongzi by chance. After a fight, Senior Fellow Apprentice Yan and the others were lost. The other three were even dead in the hands of Tiancan Tongzi.” The wretched looking man saw that the other was interested, he immediately said pompously.
“Then, what happened?” Before Senior Fellow Apprentice Zhang could manage to ask, another person next to him couldn’t help but ask. The crowd around him gradually gathered when they heard that.
When the wretched looking man saw so many people looking at him, he immediately refreshed and cleared his throat. He continued complacently, “Speaking of the situation on that day, it was extremely critical. When Senior Fellow Apprentice Yan and the other was in a desperate situation, a young outer disciple came with a gust and a roar. He cast a golden spiritual weapon… As for what is the spiritual weapon, Senior Fellow Apprentice Yan couldn’t see it clearly… With just a few maneuvers, Tiancan Tongzi was slashed into eighteen pieces. He didn’t have the strength to fight back at all…”
The wretched looking man was talking excitedly as if it was him who did it, but the people around didn’t seem to buy it.
“Old Yu. Your addiction to storytelling is acting up again right? Where did you hear the drama?”
“That’s right, how cunning is Tiancan Tongzi? Even Senior Fellow Apprentice Zhou who is in the top 30 of the outer door had tracked him for several months, but he ultimately failed to do so.”
“Yeah, how could he die so easily? He was even dead to the hand of a new outer disciple…”
“What I said is true. If you don’t believe it, you can ask Senior Fellow Apprentice Yan Ming yourself.” The wretched looking man argued in a red face.
The other ordinary Taiqing Sect disciples in the vicinity naturally doubted what they said.
At the same time, in a cave house, three men wearing outer disciple costumes were sitting together, drinking tea and chatting.
Among the three, an extremely young man with sharp eyebrows and eyes was sitting on the main seat. If the outer disciple was present, he could recognize at a glance that this person was Wang Tianheng at the rank 10th in the last major competition of the outer disciples.
“Brother Wang, it is said that Tiancan Tongzi, who has lived on the life and death list for more than ten years, is finally being killed.” A muscular man sat at the opposite of Wang Tianheng said.
This person had a square face, but his chin had a shaggy beard.
“This vicious man had killed many of our Taiqing Sect’s disciples. I wanted to get rid of him long ago, but I never had time. Someone did it first, but I don’t know who did it?” Wang Tianheng picked up his teacup and took a sip.
“It is said that it is a new Piaohong Courtyard’s outer disciple called Liu Ming. Senior Fellow Apprentice Hua is also a Piaohong Courtyard’s disciple, so you must already know this right.” The bearded man smiled slightly and said to the young man sitting on the other side.
This person also seemed to be only in his twenties, but his hair was half black and half white, looking a little weird.
“Yes, I also heard some junior fellow apprentices from outside mentioned this before. If he can kill Tiancan Tongzi in the first encounter, his strength must really be extraordinary.” Senior Fellow Apprentice Hua glanced at Wang Tianheng from the corner of his eyes and said with a half smile.
When Wang Tianheng heard the words, his face sank and sneered, “Hmph, this is just a rumor after all. In the face of absolute strength, what a newcomer disciple can do.”
The bearded man and Senior Fellow Apprentice Hua looked at each other, then turned their heads unanimously and continued to drink the tea.
Naturally, Liu Ming didn’t know about these comments from the outside world. Every day, he still retreated in the cave house to cultivate the Tiger Dragon Hell Prison.
Until two months later, a green light flashed from the sky and landed in front of Liu Ming’s cave house. The blue light converged, revealing a young girl. That person was Long Yanfei.
When Liu Ming saw Senior Sister Apprentice Long again, he couldn’t help but be dumbfounded.
Since the last time the girl left, she would come here almost every ten days in the past two months. Although she stayed for a short period of time, she only spoke casually about training in Taiqing Sect with Liu Ming, but in the end, she would invite him to visit the Silver Spring Valley to talk with her grandmother.
This time, after the woman made another invitation, Liu Ming could only nod his head to agree.
The woman was naturally overjoyed when she heard the words, then the two flew toward the Thousands Spirit Mountain.
Since the Tiancan Tongzi incident spread in the outer courtyard, Liu Ming had also become a relatively reputable among the outer disciples.
Although he usually stayed in his cave house, being visited by such an outstanding senior sister apprentice naturally attracted the attention of many interested people.
This time a few outer disciples who just passed by saw he and Long Yanfei leaving together. This news immediately spread quickly in the sect, which naturally caused a sensation.
On Piaomiao Peak, in a cave house.
“So, Junior Sister Apprentice Long went to find the kid named Liu Ming again, and the two of them left together?” In the lobby of the cave house, a handsome young man wearing inner disciple costume was sitting on a chair with a gloomy face.
“Exactly, this incident was confirmed by several junior fellow apprentices at Piaohong Courtyard. It is absolutely true.” A short man dressed as an outer disciple stood in front of the young man. He looked respectful. He was obviously a little afraid of the young man.
“Pa!” There was a crisp sound.
A jade cup in the young man’s hand was crushed to pieces with great force, turning into powder and falling.
At the same time, Liu Ming followed Long Yanfei. After flying over several mountains of varying heights, his eyes suddenly lit up. A lush emerald green valley appeared in front of him.
About half of the valley was occupied by a pale blue lake. Looking around, a faint white mist was covering on the lake.
And in the middle of this lake, there was a huge spring that kept spurting out spring water, and the sound of gurgling water could be heard far away.
The gushing spring pillar was about several tens of meters high. Under the reflection of the sunlight, it was shining with crystal clear silver light, and it was surrounded by white mist, making it look very magical.
This should be the Silver Spring Valley in Long Yanfei’s words without doubts.
After a while, Liu Ming and Liu Ming landed at the entrance of the valley, then they walked along a winding path toward the valley.
After crossing a stone bridge over a trickle, the two came to a few seemingly simple cottages.
On one side of the cottages was a medicinal field the size of acres. It was planted with various spirit grasses, and behind was an ancient tree full of pale pink fruits. On the other side was a small courtyard, except for a stone table and a few stone benches, there were some eye-catching pots of fiery red flowers.
This was the famous Silver Spring Valley in Thousands Spirit Mountain.
