Liu Ming was startled. The fire spirits not only could hide while manipulating the fire beasts to attack, but they also knew running away. Their intelligence didn’t seem to be low. This was somewhat inconsistent with the information he got.
Although the shrill they made had the effect of disrupting the mind, under his deliberate defence, he was naturally unaffected. He immediately launched the small blue sword in his hand.
The blue sword light shot out in a flash, and it had hit the red escaping light.
There was a scream from the spark. Several clusters of dazzling flames burst out suddenly, deflecting the sword light a little point.
Then there was a flash in the flame, and the combined fire spirit inside turned into a weird fire bird. With a long chirp, it flapped its wings, and it turned into a fireball that was several times faster than before. It had already gone far in a flash and became a light spot that disappeared without a trace.
“They can even use such a weird escape technique. It takes a lot of money to catch up with them.” Liu Ming waved and recalled the flying sword, looking at the direction where the human-shaped fire spirits escaped. His face was gloomy.
After the fire spirits left, the group of fire mandrills covered in the Golden Fallen Sand were still constantly attacking the sand curtain.
Liu Ming made a gesture to shrink the sand curtain again. Countless sharp spikes protruded from the inside. With a slight spin, the fire mandrills were grinned into pieces.
Then Golden Fallen Sand turned into a golden light and flew back into his sleeve.
After Liu Ming released his mental power and confirmed that there were no enemies around, he collected some useful materials on the corpses of the mandrill, and took out the map again to check it.
He was about to leave the hilly area here. If he flew north for a while, he should be able to reach the volcanic area where fire spirits appeared more frequently.
After Liu Ming’s face looked uncertain for a while, he suddenly kept away the map, made a gesture, and turned back to the direction of where he came from.
Tens of miles away, a flame flashed in the air above a wilderness. The two fire spirits who had previously escaped from Liu Ming appeared again. They slowly landed on the crimson ground below.
One of the fire spirits seemed to be less than half the size of the other, and the flames on its body were extremely dim. It was obviously injured by the previous sword light.
The uninjured fire spirit glanced around and suddenly let out a clear and long roar.
After a while, several flames flashed from different directions and gathered here quickly. There were eight other humanoid fire spirits.
The fire spirit, that made the long roar, waved its arms while making a strange clicking sound. The fire spirits that gathered there immediately made a look of listening attentively. They also made some unknown weird sound from time to time.
After a while, these fire spirits suddenly turned into flames and soared into the sky again. The direction they went was surprisingly where Liu Ming was.
Another area of Small Flame World.
Here was an endless red desert. Occasionally, the strong wind blew up the heat wave and made everything in the distance look a little twisted.
Somewhere in the desert, beside a small sand dune, a young man and a young woman are standing back to back. Both of them were sweaty. They were desperately waving the spiritual weapon in their hands.
And around them, countless red ants in the size of a palm swarmed them wave after wave.
The young man was holding a red flag with a nervous expression. As he waved it desperately, he launched out several heat waves at the ants, burning them in sizzling sound. The heat waves also knocked back the nearby ants.
However, the man did not have the slightest smile on his face. After the ants were knocked back, they just flipped over and continued to swarm.
The young girl behind him, waving a yellow ribbon in her hand. With one wave, she shot out a wind blade and slashed a dozen of ants into pieces.
However, compared to the endless ants in front of her, a dozen ants were simply insignificant. The young girl’s face became increasingly unsightly. She desperately channeled all her spiritual power to form a hurricane barrier that barely held off the attack of the ants.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Jin, there are too many red ants, we are about to be unable to resist it, what should we do?” the young girl asked urgently.
The young man’s complexion was also extremely unsightly. He did not answer the young woman’s question. He was just waving the flag desperately and knocked back the nearby ants.
Seeing the young man not speaking, the young girl’s face became even more ugly.
“It’s really impossible, let’s fly up. Although these ants can also fly, they should not be able to fly too high!” The young girl gritted her teeth again.
“No, there is…” The young man shook his head, but before he could finish speaking, there was a flash of fire in the air. Four fire spirits of ten meters tall emerged from the sky above the two of them and made a sharp shrill.
The overlapping shrills came into their ears. The young girl was caught off guard, and she was stunned as she stopped moving. The hurricane barrier immediately revealed a flaw.
Red ants swarmed the young girl in an instant.
“No…” Seeing this, the young man roared with a desperate look. He kept waving the flag desperately with crimson eyes. He launched a dozen of heat waves to the surroundings and made some explosions. Countless red ants were sent back flying, but more ants quickly swarmed over.
Under the pincer attack, the young man was also overwhelmed by the swarm of ants with just a moment.
In another huge canyon, a man in black clothes swiftly flew past in the low altitude. There were two dark red wolf-shaped spirit beasts chasing behind him in a roar.
The man in black clothes was agile. He swayed left and right in the air, and his speed was increasingly faster too. After flying past a huge boulder that was as high as one person, he disappeared from the sight of wolf-shaped spirit beasts.
The two fire wolves stomped without hesitation and leaped over the huge boulder. Suddenlym two black lights flashed from the side, and they struck the two fire wolves’ head separately like lightning.
When the front fire wolf sensed the danger, it was too late. It turned its head to the side to barely avoid the black light’s deadly attack, then its body was knocked flying back.
The latter fire wolf saw that it was bad, and it wrapped its body with a red light. After a sway, it retreated one hundred meters away and dodged the slash.
The front fire wolf tumbled in mid-air and fell tens of meters away. There was already a huge wound of several feet long on the back. The fiery red blood flowed out wildly. Half of its body was stainedin a moment.
Even so, the wolf actually didn’t die. It climbed up after rolling on the ground. Its red eyes were glaring at the young woman in green clothes who was floating in the air.
“The fire spirit beasts of Condensation State are really extraordinary. It can actually still be alive after being slashed by senior sister apprentice’s black blade.” The previous man in black clothes also appeared in the mid-air not far away. He said in surprise.
“Stop talking nonsense, finish off them first.” The woman in green clothes scolded coldly. The black long blade turned into light that struck at the wounded fire wolf not far away.
The man in black clothes released a big green net with a smile, and it blocked the other fire wolf that wanted to pounce over again.
A fierce expression flashed in the wolf’s eyes. It spat out a red fireball at the green big net.
As soon as the fireball hit the big net, it burst open suddenly, setting off a burst of red light mixed with a huge force that bounced the big net tens of meters away.
The fire wolf figure jumped out of the red light without stopping. It pounced toward the man in black clothes. As it just ran for twenty meters, a green light flashed in the air in front, and a large green net dropped from above.
The man in black clothes smiled after seeing this. He changed his gestures, and the two giant green net intercepted in front of the fire wolf.
A whine sounded.
The injured fire wolf’s head had been cut off by the black long blade in the hands of the woman in green clothes at this moment. Its blood splashed all over the ground. The headless body twitched twice, and it no longer moved.
As the woman in green clothes was going to kill the other fire wolf with the man in black clothes, a flame flashed in mid-air at this moment. A human-shaped fire spirit appeared and went to the front of the man.
“Be careful!” The woman in green clothes also reacted extremely quickly. With a sharp scream, she launched the black blade at the back of the fire spirit.
The fire spirit dodged in mid-air easily, then it rushed to the side of the fire wolf. The fire spirit launched a red light to wrap the fire wolf, then they escaped far away in a flash.
Seeing this, the man couldn’t help looking a little ugly. When he was about to fly and chase, a harsh shrill came from a distance, making him feel dizzy in his head. Even his mind began to shake.
At this moment, a cold snort came from the side.
After the man heard it, he felt a refreshing coolness. His eyes regained a bit of clarity, then he hurriedly concentrated his mind.
But after this slight delay, the fire spirit had disappeared into the sky. It was too late to pursue.
“Thank you senior sister apprentice for your help. This fire spirit’s mental attack is really troublesome.” The man in black clothes let out a long sigh of relief and thanked to his companion.
“According to the senior fellow apprentices who entered this Small Flame World before, the fire spirit here does not have such a high level of mental attack and intelligence. Did we encounter a mutated fire spirit this time?” The woman in green clothes looked at the direction where the fire spirit escaped. She frowned and said.
A similar situation also occurred elsewhere in the Small Flame World.
Half a day later, Liu Ming returned to the place where the teleportation originally appeared again without anything happening.
What surprised him was that there were already others standing there.
The tall Zang Xuan stood expressionlessly under a big tree. There was also a young man in white clothes sitting cross-legged in front of him. His face was extremely pale, and there was a trace of blood on his green robe. He seemed to be seriously injured.
