Long Yanfei gently raised one hand, and the door of a cottage opened by itself. She then gently stepped into the house.
Liu Ming followed closely behind.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu, please wait a moment here, I’ll go and inform my grandmother.” Long Yanfei called Liu Ming to sit down and walked toward the back of the cottage.
Liu Ming nodded. He glanced around and found that the house was not big. It was only around sixty meters long and wide. Although the display in the house was simple, tables, chairs and other things were also readily available. It looked like a living room.
On the wall on one side of the house, an old painting hanging on the wall caught his attention.
The person in the painting was a valiant young man with a green robe and an unsheathed sword on his back. A faint black gas lingered on his body. There was a fierce and heroic vibe between his brows, which vaguely revealed a sense of oppression.
A soft cough interrupted Liu Ming’s gaze, and Long Yanfei pushed in a middle-aged woman in a wheelchair through the door.
“Grandma, this is Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu, the disciple of Great Grandfather Liuyin.” Long Yanfei whispered to the middle-aged woman.
“Junior Liu Ming greets seniors.” Liu Ming saw this, and he hurriedly stood up and bowed his hands to the woman respectfully.
He glanced and found that Long Yanfei’s grandmother in front of him was an exceptionally beautiful and graceful woman, but there was nothing below her long skirt. Her legs were gone. Judging from her aura, she was actually at the Crystallization Period.
“Fei’er, go and make a pot of tea for the guest.” The woman smiled and nodded, motioned Liu Ming to sit down, and then turned to order Long Yanfei.
Hearing this, Long Yanfei turned and walked toward the inner room again.
“Nephew Disciple Liu, my great grandfather, Liuyin, was accidentally involved in a space storm that day. According to what you said earlier, he seemed to have drifted to a place called Yunchuan Continent and founded Savage Ghost Sect. Can you give me details? Tell me how did Great Grandfather accept you as a disciple?” The woman asked lightly.
“Replying to the senior, Grandmaster Liuyin did create Savage Ghost Sect back then, but when junior joined the sect, grandmaster had passed away long ago. Junior only gets to know about grandmaster through the words of my master and sect master.” Liu Ming answered honestly.
“In that case, you just joined the Savage Ghost Sect. How did you get the Tiger Dragon Hell Prison you practiced? Could it be taught by his descendants?” The woman still asked calmly after hearing that, but her eyes flashed a hint of doubt.
“Grandmaster Liuyin did not teach any Taiqing Sect techniques to the disciples of Savage Ghost Sect, but he converted his life-long learning into a piece of Wall of Shadows for future generations to study. Junior encountered the Divine Thought left by grandmaster when I was studying the Wall of Shadows. Because there wasn’t much power left in the Wall of Shadows, so Grandmaster Liuyin could only teach me Tiger Dragon Hell Prison. He told junior about the Taiqing Sect, hoping that junior could bring a message back to his sect.” Liu Ming thought, then he honestly told everything to the woman. However, he never mentioned anything about Tai Gang Sword Embryo.
At this time, Long Yanfei came in with a cup of tea.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu, please drink some tea. I planted this spirit tea by myself, which is quite effective for improving spiritual power.” Long Yanfei said, putting the teacup on the table next to Liu Ming, then she stood behind the woman again.
“Thank you Senior Sister Apprentice Long.” Liu Ming didn’t dare to neglect and said politely. He uncovered the lid of the cup and took a sip. A scent of fragrance entered his throat, and he immediately felt refreshed.
“Nephew Liu, when you communicated with my grandfather’s Divine Thought, did he mention anything about sword embryo spirit? Or, do you have similar rumors in the Savage Ghost Sect?” The woman’s eyes flashed; she actually asked about the sword embryo spirit.
Liu Ming was shocked, but he immediately rejected with a calm expression, “Grandmaster Liuyin did not mention this.”
When the woman heard Liu Ming’s answer, she turned her eyes down and didn’t ask any more. She just continued to ask Liu Ming kindly about the situation and deeds of Great Grandfather Liuyin.
A few hours later, Long Yanfei sent him away from the valley.
“Fei’er. That Liu Ming has gone?” The beautiful woman was looking thoughtfully at the portrait on the wall. When Long Yanfei stepped into the cottage, she asked right away.
“Reporting to grandmother, I have sent him out of the valley. I came back after I’m sure that he has left.” Long Yanfei replied respectfully.
“Your great grandmother had a last word when she was dying, saying that when your Great Grandfather Liuyin had already been condensing Tai Gang Sword Embryo before he was lost. Because he wasn’t a Sword Cultivator, so this sword embryo spirit was surely prepared for his descendants. He would never use it himself. Since Liu Ming had seen a trace of Divine Thought left by Great Granfather Liuyin, and he had passed him the Tiger Dragon Hell Prison and let him to come to Taiqing Sect for him, how would he not mention about this important sword embryo spirit.” The beautiful woman frowned and said with a serious face.
“Grandma, I just noticed Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu’s calm expression when he answered this. He didn’t look like he was lying.” Long Yanfei replied with a frown.
“Because he was too calm, this is even more suspicious. Fei’er, you have to try to get in touch more with Liu Ming in the future. See if you can find a chance to figure out the whereabouts of the sword embryo spirit.” The middle-aged woman said in a commanding tone.
“Yes, Fei’er understood.” Long Yanfei agreed upon hearing this.
Liu Ming was now flying to his cave house.
In the previous dialogue, he naturally also vaguely sensed the middle-aged beautiful woman’s suspicion of him, but in this case, he naturally couldn’t explain more.
After thinking about it in this way, he seemed to suddenly think of something. He immediately changed his gesture and changed the direction.
After about a dozen minutes, Liu Ming came to a gray-white hall located on a mountain peak somewhere.
This hall did not seem to be very big. It was more than a thousand meters in size, and the whole building was made of gray and white stones.
“Hall of All Things”
Liu Ming looked at the plaque hanging on the door of the hall and muttered to himself.
The so-called Hall of All Things actually was a place that provided some elixirs and talismans for the disciples. Most of the elixirs and talismans from low tier to upper tier could be exchanged by contribution points.
He immediately walked in slowly.
In the hall at this time, there were about dozens of disciples wearing various costumes. They were gathering in small groups in front of a few deputy disciples. Some were exchanging for the elixirs and talismans they needed; some were whispering something.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Qin, I heard that your Piaomiao Peak recently has taken in a very beautiful inner disciple, is that true?” Not far away, a burly man wearing inner disciple costumes was asking another handsome young man in green robe.
“It’s true. I only learned from a senior fellow apprentice. According to his description, this woman is only in her twenties. She has a smooth skin and her beauty is unparalleled. I accidentally saw this woman a few days ago. I think only the word fairy can describe her.” The young man had already looked infatuated when he talked about this.
“I heard that the woman possesses the legendary sky succubus physique, which can suck people’s mind and soul with an invisible force. Are you being affected by this technique?” Seeing that the young man was infatuated, he hastily patted the young man’s shoulder.
“Sky succubus physique?”
When the burly man said these three words, Liu Ming, who was walking into the hall, was taken aback.
What the other party said was Jia Lan, but he didn’t expect this woman to be able to enter Piaomiao Peak and become an inner disciple so easily.
“Thank you senior fellow apprentice for reminding me of that. Even if this junior does not have a sky succubus physique, her appearance alone is enough to drive me crazy.” At this time, the young man shook his head and immediately replied with a wry smile.
Although Liu Ming was a little surprised, his expression remained unchanged. He walked to a deputy disciple who was in charge of elixir exchange.
After a while, Liu Ming walked out of the Hall of All Things, and his remaining 5,000 contribution points were all exchanged into various elixirs that could be used to break through the Condensation Period. He looked at the small bottles in the bag and nodded in satisfaction. He made a gesture and flew back to his cave house.
After returning to the cave house, Liu Ming made some preparations. He hung up the door plate of declining visitors, then he walked into the secret room to concentrate in cultivating.
Time flies. Liu Ming hadn’t left the cave house for a year.
At first, Long Yanfei would visit Liu Ming at the door of his cave house every ten days, but after seeing the door place of declining visitors, she came once every two or three months. However, she was disappointed every time. Liu Ming naturally knew nothing about this.
On this day, Liu Ming was sitting cross-legged in the secret room of the cave house.
Suddenly, the black gas rumbled violently. It suddenly split into two black mists that rushed upward. In the roar of dragon and tiger, the two black mists turned into black dragon and black tiger that circled and chased each other in the secret room.
The black gas rolling out from Liu Ming’s body was still continuously blending into the dragon and tiger, making the two bodies gradually solidify.
As the two continued to wander around, their figures were much clearer than before.
The black mist dragon made a whistling sound, causing the black mist around to tumble; the black mist tiger also caused waved of space fluctuation wherever it passed.
After a while, Liu Ming suddenly opened his eyes and yelled to the sky. His body and limbs made a crackling sound, and his figure enlarged by at fifty meters.
On the other hand, the black mist dragon and tiger had shrunk a little. Their figures also became much more clearer. They started to wander around Liu Ming’s body surface.
At this time, Liu Ming had a sturdy figure, with bulging muscles and tendons on the surface. Under the entanglement of the black dragon and mist tiger, he exuded a chilling and fierce beast-like aura.
His eyes flickered as he separated his hands. The dragon and tiger rose again. After they met in the air, they turned into two clouds of black mist again and went back into Liu Ming’s head.
