Liu Ming saw in his eyes, but he was still calm. As he formed a sword gesture, he continued to channel the sword qi to strike.
His Sword Controlling Technique naturally regained the power of its heyday after successfully condensing the Sumeru Void Sword Embryo. If he cast it with full strength, even the cultivator at the Condensation Period later stage wouldn’t dare to tank it, let alone this fire crow.
As a result, the blue sword light flashed, and it immediately cut the flames easily, splitting the fire crow in half.
The power of the flying sword flew straight into the group of fire crows. After a dense blue sword light flashed, exploding sounds could be heard. The few fire crows in front were slaughtered in a flash.
After slaying several fire crows in a row, the blue sword light suddenly became dim. The fire crows behind were shocked, and finally escaped in the sound of “quacking”.
Liu Ming just got this sword weapon, and he didn’t manage to sacrificial refine this sword, so the enchantment of the sword couldn’t be exerted fully. Its power couldn’t be maintained for too long.
Liu Ming immediately recalled the blue flying sword with a wave of his hand, then he once again injected some spiritual power after making a gesture. He wanted to kill all these fire crows at once.
But at this moment, there was an ear-piercing shrill from nowhere!
With his powerful mental power, he only felt his head sink slightly. After squinting his eyes, he didn’t channel the flying sword to slash out.
As a result, the remaining fire crows took the opportunity to dodge far away. After a short while, they once again turned into red light spots and disappeared at the end of the horizon.
At this moment, Liu Ming’s body surface was covered with black air. There were even golden light flickering in his sleeves.
At the same time, Liu Ming released his mental power again. He repeatedly searched the nearby area, but he found nothing.
The thing that made that shrill sound seemed to have quietly left.
Liu Ming looked expressionless, but he was very cautious.
He had never heard of such a shrill before, nor had he heard Yan Ming mention anything about it. Since it could affect his spiritual consciousness, this showed that it was at least at the Condensation Period.
After thinking for a long time, he retrieved the blue spirit sword, collected the fire crows corpses, and took some rest. After his spiritual power recovered, he continued to move north according to the map.
Just half an hour after leaving, Liu Ming once again encountered a wave of fire-attribute spirit beasts which turned out to be ten fire foxes.
He didn’t use the Sword Controlling Technique this time. As his figure flickered, he rushed into the group of fire foxes, leaving a series of afterimages. His palm released a cloud of black gas that condensed into a giant palm.
He waved and caught a fire fox in an instant, bursting its head with a finger.
These fire foxes and fire crows were similar. They were all at the Spirit Apostle. They couldn’t fight back at all. After a while, eight fire foxes were killed under Liu Ming’s hands.
At this moment, the shrill sound appeared again. When the fire foxes attacking frantically around Liu Ming heard this sound, they retreated quickly again.
But this time, he used mental power to protect his mind from the sound interference, then he pursued and killed these fleeing fire foxes one by one.
But even so, he still failed to grasp the creature that shrilled. His Divine Thought could only sense a trace of an extremely faint fire attribute spiritual power fluctuations in the nearby space.
So just like that, Liu Ming was frequently attacked by fire attribute beasts on his way.
The fire rats, fire ants, fire snakes and other flame beasts were eye-opening for him. Fortunately, these beasts were not very strong. Most of them were at the Spirit Apostle. Occasionally, there were one or two Condensation State spirit beasts, but they weren’t his opponent at all.
Every time he was about to wipe out the beasts, he would be disturbed by the same inexplicable shrill.
If it weren’t for his mental power was stronger than ordinary people, he would have let the remaining fire spirit beasts escape.
What was even stranger was that when this shrill sound appeared, Liu Ming couldn’t trace it even with his powerful mental power.
Liu Ming had faintly noticed something wrong. After thinking about it, he immediately slowed down his pace.
Half an hour later, Liu Ming was once again attacked by a wave of fire spirit beasts. This time was 30 fire mandrills.
Mandrill spirit beasts were sub-human spirit beasts. Its appearance is somewhat similar to that of humans. It was about the size of half an adult. Its stubby limbs bear a large head that obviously didn’t match for the body. The skin was full of Folds. The traces of facial features can be seen faintly on the face.
This group of fire mandrills spotted Liu Ming from a distance, and they pounced at him with a squeaking sound. The first fire mandrill was obviously larger than the other fire mandrills. The spirit fluctuations it exuded were at the Condensation Period.
Liu Ming’s thoughts turned sharply. He canceled his mental power and stomped the ground at the same time. He jumped above the fire mandrill group. His long sleeve had a faint fluctuation. Something invisible seemed to have launched out.
Liu Ming’s sudden action made the fire mandrill leader startled. He spat out a fire blade of a few feet in size, and the fire mandrill behind it also spurted fireballs at the fire blade.
The fire blade grew larger into the size of tens of meters. It whistled toward Liu Ming who was in the air.
Liu Ming flicked his sleeve, and golden light spots flew out from it.
The next moment, a yellow sand mist suddenly appeared in the air in front of him, turning into a golden sand wall that blocked in front of him.
The fire blade struck at the sand wall heavily, but it only stirred up the yellow sand before it burst open.
Liu Ming raised his hand again and launched a symbol. The golden sand wall shone greatly and turned into a golden broadsword, slashing down toward the mandrill leader below.
The fire mandrill leader seemed to feel the danger too. He spouted a red crystal ball. The crystal ball transformed into a few feet in size. There were flames on its surface. It went straight at the golden sword light.
With a loud “bang“, the blade light collided with the crystal ball.
With a “click” sound, a crack appeared on the surface of the crystal ball and it was bounced open.
At the same time, the mandrill leader below spurted a mouthful of blood.
Liu Ming changed his gesture. The golden broadsword was blurred for a while, and it disappeared.
At the next moment, the golden broadsword appeared in front of the fire mandrill leader in a flash, and it slashed down silently.
The fire mandrill roared, but it was too late to retrieve the crystal ball. A black red flame emerged on its body, trying to block the strike.
But it was a superb spiritual weapon, how could such defense resist it.
The golden light flashed, and the fire mandrill leader was cut into half. Blood spattered in all directions. The two ordinary fire mandrills closer to it that had not yet reacted were also being killed after the golden blade light burst apart.
Liu Ming took the crystal ball with one hand, but due to the collision, a faint crack appeared on it.
He secretly felt pity and put it away. He waved one hand, and the golden sword light turned into sand mist that surrounded the fire mandrill group.
Just when Liu Ming was about to use powerful means to kill all these mandrills, the shrill sounded again strangely.
Liu Ming’s expression moved. His action paused, then he stood in the air without moving.
The trapped fire mandrills spouted flames and attacked fanatically at the golden sand curtain.
At this moment, a muffled sound came from the air more than three hundred meters away from Liu Ming. A faint golden figure flashed out. His arm turned blurred and threw out a golden punch.
A loud noise!
After a wave of golden air rolled away, two crimson figures stumbled and flashed out of the nearby air.
After Liu Ming’s eyes flickered, he could see the two figures clearly. They were two fire spirits whose whole bodies were wrapped in red flames.
These two monsters were similar in size to humans. Their black bodies covered in flames had hands and feets, but their facial features were distorted. They were exactly the same as the fire spirits previously summoned by Wei Zhong, but they had slightly stronger aura.
The pale golden figure that attacked just now was a golden armor soldier with the same face as Liu Ming. It was a talisman soldier transformed by the yellow turban soldier talisman.
“As expected, it was you fire spirits disrupting me secretly! No matter how wonderful the fire escape technique has become in this small spirit world, I may not be able to catch you for the first or second time, but you actually followed me for so long. If I couldn’t notice it, wouldn’t I be a real idiot?” Liu Ming looked at the two fire spirits, and his expression didn’t change, but he muttered to himself.
It turned out that when Liu Ming soared into the sky just now, he had already released the rune talisman. It turned into a golden armor rune soldier that hid by the side.
When the two fire spirits screamed again, they made a mental attack at Liu Ming, but their exact location was finally being locked. He immediately controlled the rune soldier to attack, breaking their fire escape technique.
Although the lesser half was because of surprise, most of it was because Liu Ming had figured out the approximate location of their hiding place in the previous several attacks, but he pretended to not know about it.
As soon as Liu Ming said to himself, the blue light flashed in his hand. He had already made an attack with a blue flying sword in his hand.
The whistling sounds were loud!
The blue light flashed suddenly. In the air, the two human-shaped monsters that were wrapped in flames had already been hit by the blue sword light.
“Boom” “Boom“! When the two fire spirits flew backward, they made a sharp shrill at the same time. The flames on their bodies lit up, and they combined into one and flew away.
