This young man in white was the outer disciple who suggested that everyone act together. Although there were a few people following him, now only he was here. His companions were most probably dead.
As soon as Liu Ming’s figure appeared not far away, Zang Xuan looked at him coldly. After seeing Liu Ming, he took back his gaze.
The young man in white opened his eyes suddenly. After looking at Liu Ming, he suddenly said with a wry smile,
“Junior fellow apprentice returns here as well. Did you also encounter a large number of fire spirit beasts led by the fire spirits on the way?”
“Indeed, is it the same for the two senior fellow apprentices?” Liu Ming walked over the two slowly, and he nodded without denying.
Zang Xuan on the side frowned slightly when Liu Ming said it, and did not speak.
The young man in white slowly sighed and slowly spoke of his half-day experience.
It turned out that when he was with the other two people, they also started to kill some low rank fire spirit beasts continuously. As their confidence increased, they wanted to explore deeper.
As a result, when passing through a wasteland, the three of them were surrounded by a sudden large number of fire spirit beasts. However, because these fire spirit beasts were not high in cultivation, the three of them did not immediately escape. Instead, they started to slaughter the fire spirits beasts with the plan of getting more spirit beasts’ materials.
As a result, when the three of them almost killed all the beasts, and they were exhausted too, a few fire spirits appeared. They killed his two companions with a sneak attack. If Zang Xuan didn’t pass by and used his powerful strength to scare off the fire spirits, he would most likely be dead.
“It was the same as me. I frequently encountered some fire spirit beasts. The fire spirits that should not appear in large numbers in this area also appeared. The degree of danger is completely inconsistent with the information previously I obtained. It must be a kind of mutation in the Small Flame World. Now it seems that our best choice is to quit the entry trial and report to the sect.” Liu Ming said slowly after pondering for a moment.
“I think so too. These fire spirits obviously seem to have undergone a certain mutation. The Small Flame World has become very dangerous. According to the rules of our sect, we can completely withdraw from this trial.” The young man in white clothes also agreed to it after hearing Liu Ming’s suggestions.
“Since the two of you said so, I don’t have any comments.” Zang Xuan nodded slightly after listening.
“In that case, let’s leave this place quickly so that anything bad won’t happen. I have injuries on me, so I’ll leave first.” Seeing this, the young man in white clothes immediately took out a white jade talisman and launched a symbol into it.
The surface of the jade talisman flashed, and a white light suddenly rose into the sky. However the white light burst open before going too high.
At the same time, the jade talisman in the hands of the young man had already shattered into pieces.
When the three of them saw this, their expressions changed. They looked into the sky without blinking.
But after about a dozen minutes, nothing happened.
“What’s the matter? Didn’t they say that the jade talisman can teleport us after crushing it?” The voice of the young man in white clothes trembled.
Liu Ming and Zang Xuan looked at each other. Their faces were a little unsightly.
Immediately afterward, they also crushed the jade talisman in their hands. However, it was still the same.
Regarding the changes encountered previously, Liu Ming had faintly guessed whether the Small Flame World had a mutation. Now that Jade Talisman had lost the effect, then it was confirming his speculation.
“Now that jade talisman has failed. It seems unrealistic to want to leave here for a short time. I don’t know whether the eight masters outside can know the situation here. Now we can only rely on ourselves to keep ourselves alive, then we will think of how to get out of this place. Unless, both of you have other ways to leave this place.” Liu Ming said so after a moment of silence.
“When we entered here, it was through the help of all eight masters. How can there be other ways to leave.” The young man in white clothes said with a pale face.
“There is no other way in Xia.” Zang Xuan said so after his eyes flashed twice.
Zang Xuan also shook his head.
“In this way, it is better to find other people to group up and discuss the countermeasures. Otherwise, since the fire spirits are no longer restricted by the area, if we continue to stay here, I’m afraid it will be very dangerous.” After thinking about it, he finally made such a suggestion.
“We are going to leave here naturally. Most of the other disciples should rush to the various fire spirit tribes in Small Flame World, and the disciples who choose the largest fire spirit tribe in the center as the target must be the most. Those places can gather most of the disciples of our sect. Since the fire spirit can appear in other areas, there won’t be much fire spirits gathering in the tribes which is just good for us to meet with our fellow apprentices. However, since the fire spirits can assault us with so many fire attribute spirit beasts, I think the other disciples won’t be able to survive it. Not sure how many people can we gather. Now the route in the map can’t be use, we have to find another way.” Zang Xuan said in a deep voice.
“It’s simple, we only need to pick a route that is not marked on the map. Although there may be other dangers, it is better than being targeted by those fire spirits.” Liu Ming originally thought the same way. Hearing this from Zang Xuan, although he was a little surprised, he still said in agreement.
The young man in white had no other opinion on this.
After some discussion, the three decided to wait for the young man in white clothes to recover his spiritual power, then they would set off immediately to the largest fire spirit tribe in the center of Small Flame World.
The young man in white immediately took out a small jade bottle from his sleeve, poured out two red elixirs, swallowed it, and then sat cross-legged, meditating and adjusting his breath with his eyes closed.
After a while, the pale face of the young man began to gradually become ruddy.
Liu Ming found a piece of red rock and sat down cross-legged. While using his mental power to pay attention to the surrounding situation, he was quietly thinking about something.
Zang Xuan stood in place with his arms crossed, looking far away thoughtfully.
Two hours later, the young man in white clothes stood up after taking a long breath.
Then the three of them moved and flew toward a certain direction in low altitude.
A few hours later.
They went walking on a forty meters wide road. One side was endless red hill, and the other side was an endless red forest.
Suddenly, Zang Xuan, who was walking in the front, stopped. There were three human remains lying on the ground not far in front. It could be vaguely distinguished by the clothes that they were the outer disciples, and there were a dozen corpses of fire wolves lying all around.
The remains of the three outer disciples were all scorched and black, and their limbs were all deformed due to the bite. One of the body’s chest was even hollowed out.
It seemed that these three disciples had a fierce battle with the fire wolves before their death.
“Those fire spirits should have gone.” Zang Xuan’s purple eyes swept the surroundings, then he said lightly.
As soon as Liu Ming moved, he went directly to the front of the remains. He bowed his head to check carefully, but he found no spiritual weapon or elixir.
After Liu Ming sighed, he shook his head and stood up, then he launched three fireballs to burn the bodies into ashes.
On the next journey, the three of them did not encounter a large-scale attack. They only encountered a few ordinary fire beasts in twos and threes, and they were naturally killed by them easily.
After another half day, the three of them came to a circular lake.
Looking around, the whole lake was as dead as a pool of stagnant water. The surface was covered by a layer of light red smoke, which blocked their sight, preventing them to see things in the distance.
“Wait a minute.” Zang Xuan in front suddenly motioned Liu Ming and the other man to stop.
“What did Brother Zang?” The young man in white clothes asked with a hint of doubt.
“There are fire spirits hiding nearby. There are about four to five.” Zang Xuan said with a pair of purple eyes sweeping across the air in front.
As soon as these words came out, the two were naturally surprised.
Liu Ming immediately released his mental power to search, but he didn’t detect any sign of the fire spirit. He couldn’t help but be surprised.
However, when his mental power extended further away, he found a wave of mixed spiritual power coming from ahead.
Liu Ming narrowed his eyes. Through the hazy fog, he noticed that there were a few light spots not far away. It was obviously a large group of fire-attribute spirit beasts coming toward them.
“We may be ambushed.” Liu Ming’s face turned dark. He flicked his sleeve and grabbed a blue sword in his hand.
The young man in white hurriedly took out a black spiritual fan and placed it in front of him.
Zang Xuan opened his mouth and spat out a small yellow sword, then he made a sword gesture while pointing at a rock by the lake.
A yellow rainbow shot away.
The rock was cut in two under a flash of yellow light. At the same time, a red fire ball rolled out in a flash, which was a human-shaped fire spirit.
Zang Xuan suddenly clenched a fist with the other hand and slammed into the ground below.
Suddenly, the nearby ground trembled suddenly, and several mud pillars burst out from the open space in front of them. A burst of spark flickered, then four more fire spirits appeared in the air.
These fire spirits were surrounded by scarlet flames. When their whereabouts were exposed, they all screamed at the same moment.
The young man in white clothes’ face turned pale when he heard it, but Liu Ming and Zang Xuan looked unaffected.
“Brother Liu, you go and deal with those fire spirit beasts. Let me take care of these fire spirits.” Zang Xuan saw this and glanced at Liu Ming with surprise, and said.
After that, he threw a talisman with one hand and turned it into a layer of yellow light to protect himself, while the other hand never stopped forming gestures. He manipulated the yellow flying sword to turn into a yellow light that surrounded three fire spirits in it. The three fire spirits were being forced back by the cold flash, and they stopped making the screaming noise abruptly…
The young man in white clothes looked better after the noise was reduced. He waved the black spiritual fan to stir up a few hurricanes and launched them at the other two fire spirits.
