After a while, Liu Ming appeared above the river. He looked down and checked the surroundings in a quick glance.
The color of the river here was crimson as if it was flowing lava.
Liu Ming did not hesitate to make a gesture with one hand, and black gas spurted out from his body; golden light spots also appeared out of his sleeve, turning into a golden sand mist that covered him in it.
He plunged directly into the river like a stone.
Although the river below was extremely hot, he was naturally safe and sound under the blessing of the Golden Fallen Sand Protection Aura and the power of Tiger Dragon Hell Prison.
He dived into the bottom of the river more than a hundred meters in one breath, and he restrained his aura at the same time. Even the spiritual power fluctuation of Golden Fallen Sand was suppressed to the extreme.
After a while, the rumbling voice came from above again, and it was getting closer.
“I hope I can deceive them…” Liu Ming thought to himself in his heart.
However, when he thought so in his heart, the river above rumbled violently. Several crocodile fire spirit beasts were swimming toward him.
Liu Ming cursed secretly in his heart, and a golden light flew out of the river in the incarnation of nothing.
On the bank of the river, the human-shaped fire spirit seemed to be waiting for a long time. When Liu Ming screamed, several fire spirit beasts immediately rushed over.
Liu Ming had to release his flying sword and killed several fire beasts in a row before fleeing.
Not long later, Liu Ming was wrapped in a yellow light again, hiding ten thousand meters deep into the ground below a hill.
“Hiding in such a deep place, even with the Divine Thought of the Crystallization Period, they definitely can’t trace me.” After he suppressed his aura, he immediately sat down cross-legged and took out two top-grade spirit stones to restore some spiritual power.
Continuous battles and rushes all the way, even with Liu Ming’s spiritual power that exceeded those of the same level, he would feel overwhelmed too.
However, before he could settle down, the vibration of the soil above came faintly again.
Liu Ming was shocked. He released his Divine Thought immediately, and a wry smile appeared on his face after a while.
More than thousands meters away above him, two giant centipedes with hard carapace were sliding their feet, quickly digging through the soil and crawling toward him.
After around ten minutes, Liu Ming, surrounded by yellow light, broke out of the ground near the hill, trying to escape.
But the flames flashed before his eyes, a human-shaped fire spirit that was hiding blocked in front of Liu Ming.
“You are courting death!”
Liu Ming’s face sank. Naturally, he didn’t have the slightest fear of a Condensation Period early stage fire spirit. A golden sand mist surged out from his sleeve, forming a golden big hand that grapsed the fire spirit tightly.
Then his other sleeve shook again.
A blue sword light flashed!
The fire spirit that was restrained was beheaded by him before it could make a sound.
“Eh? The aura just now…” Liu Ming took the essence core in one hand. As he wanted to turn around and escape, he took a look at the headless fire spirit corpse again. A hint of surprise flashed on his face.
Just before, he suddenly felt a familiar breath from the corpse of the fire spirit, which was vaguely owned by the huge fire spirit he had seen before.
At this time, with a muffled sound, the headless corpse fire spirit burst open by itself in a flash. Under the rolling flames, it was burned into a pile of black ashes, and suddenly a trace of red clouds flew out from it. After a flash, it was about to soar into the air.
Liu Ming’s figure flashed instantly without thinking, and he faded out beside the red clouds and grabbed it .
He released his powerful mental power to scan it.
“This aura really belongs to that giant fire spirit. This creature has the ability to attach a trace of its own Divine Thought to its own kind. No wonder no matter how I hide, I still can’t escape the fire spirit and the beasts. With the mighty strength of this giant fire spirit, in this Small Flame World where there are plenty of fire spirits, as long as the clone is within a certain distance, it is indeed easy to find all kinds of hidden enemies.”
After Liu Ming understood this, he immediately rubbed his hands and crushed the red clouds. He then flew into a certain direction.
After a long time, between a narrow valley, a few green and purple lights flashed by, followed by a group of scarlet fire clouds.
Wherever the fire cloud passed, waves of heat waves would be spread. The flames were mixed with red sand.
After a while, at the end of the valley, a few escaping lights dissipated, revealing their figures. It was Zang Xuan, Chen Deng and the others.
“Not good, I didn’t expect this valley to be inconsistent with the map. It is a dead end.” A disciple in green robe said with a solemn expression looking at the scarlet fire cloud rolling in the distance.
“At this point, we can only fight back.” Chen Deng’s face looked gloomy and said in a low voice.
After these people met by chance, they fought all the way to this point. Their spiritual power had already consumed more than half.
Therefore, after encountering a large number of spirit beasts controlled by the fire spirits, they could only escape while fighting, but they did not expect to escape into this valley of death.
Chen Deng’s sleeves flicked, and he held eight blue formation flags in his hand. He waved and launched out the flags. After launching a series of symbols, eight formation flags that spread around disappearedin an instant.
“I have deployed the Sky Water Protection Array. Although this array has a mediocre defense, it belongs to the water element array and should be able to hold on for a while.” Chen Deng sighed with relief after quickly setting up this array.
As soon as he spoke, the scarlet fire clouds appeared above them.
After a burst of fire, the fire clouds slowly dissipated. Two human-shaped fire spirits wrapped in red flames appeared. There were eight fire birds and five fire wolves beside them.
The fire birds’ eyes were flashing with red light; red spirit patterns kept flashing on their body; they made a few sharp chirps from time to time; the wings kept stirring up fire waves.
The fire wolves exhaled bursts of red flames in their mouths and let out a low roar. A pair of huge fangs were an inch long. they stared fiercely at the people below.
Regardless of the two fire spirits, or the dozen or so fire spirit beasts, they were all at the Condensation Period. It was no wonder that they could only escape even with Chen Deng and Zang Xuan’s strength.
“Kill, kill…” The two human-shaped fire spirits seemed to issue vague instructions, but they didn’t intend to act at all. They just looked at the men below.
After hearing the instructions, the eight firebirds beside them burst into flames, instantly turning into a few red flames that blasted at them.
A loud howling!
The red flames in the sky gradually darkened. When the flames came to their front, the color of the flames had already turned deep red.
Chen Deng was chanting while he pointed in the air with one finger. The faint blue light shield from the formation flags appeared again, shielding them inside.
As the blue light circulated in the light curtain, everyone in the array suddenly felt a long-lost cool and refreshing feeling.
“Bang bang bang…”
As soon as the fire birds touched the light curtain, they were bounced away with a flash of blue light.
But the next moment, a cluster of crimson flames surged from the place where the fire birds had previously collided, then the light curtain suddenly boiled up.
When Chen Deng saw this, the symbol in his hand was constantly changing. A burst of blue light circulated on the surface of the light curtain, and the boiling reaction was calm.
Only a few times later, the entire blue light curtain became a bit smaller.
The fire birds that were bounced away continued to chirp and dive down as if they were unharmed.
In a violent collision, the blue light curtain shrank by more than one-fifth in a short period of time.
At this moment, several fire wolves that were initially beside the fire spirits above, had appeared silently from their side. At the same time, they shot out crimson fire beams that condensed into a dozen meters long crimson flame beam. It blasted at the blue light curtain with amazing momentum.
“Brother Zang, try to resist it!” Chen Deng was also shocked by the sudden appearance of fire wolves. Knowing that the protective array was unable to take the blow of the wolves, he immediately shouted.
Zang Xuan lifted up his spirit stones without saying a word, and he cast a yellow small shield in front of him. As he chanted, the shield emitted dazzling yellow light and became sixty meters in size. Yellow runes were flowing on its surface.
The yellow spirit patterns on the surface of the giant shield kept flashing, and heat waves radiated to the surroundings. Under the defense of the giant shield, the crimson flame beam was unable to advance for a moment.
Fire sparks blazed into the sky, and the blue light curtain also trembled slightly due to the impact.
As Xuan Zang’s spiritual power was in deficit, he could no longer make any counter-attack.
When the two fire spirits in the air saw this, they looked at each other and let out a roar. Two head-sized fireballs spurted out of their mouths and went straight to the blue light curtain.
The fireballs were more than one hundred meters ten feet away from them, but they could feel a burst of hot air rushed toward their faces.
Seeing this, the other two outer disciples also desperately used various spiritual weapons to block it, but under the dense fireball attacks of the two fire spirits, the glow of the spiritual weapon quickly became dimmed.
Chen Deng, who was desperately channeling the power of the protective array, turned pale when he saw this.
At this critical moment, a dazzling golden light flashed in the sky, and a golden sand wall appeared above the blue light curtain.
A blue rainbow suddenly appeared behind the fire birds, and an astounding cold light spread out.
The two fire birds that were originally attacking the array, caught off guard was pierced by the blue rainbow and fell from the sky after two wailings.
At the same time, a fuzzy figure in a green robe appeared in a pile of rocks more than three hundred meters away. It was Liu Ming.
As soon as he appeared, he pointed at the golden sand wall above the blue light curtain.
The huge sand wall immediately turned into a golden sand mist and rolled down, trapping all the remaining fire birds in it.
In the sand mist, golden and red light flashed one after another. The trapped fire birds kept hitting the sand curtain, making several “bang” sounds, but they couldn’t break through it.
