At this moment, there was a sound of something moving at high speed!
Suddenly, a black gas rolled over and slammed heavily on the white long spear.
The white flame spear trembled, and it was forcefully knocked out.
Liu Ming threw a punch by the side. The next moment, he stepped in the air. His body went at the fire spirit king in a series of afterimages. With just a blur, he got near to the fire spirit king.
The fire spirit king roared and spurted out a white flame wave.
Liu Ming moved his mind, and crimson scales appeared on both his hands. He held a Heavy Water Droplet in each hand, instantly launching waves of black fist shadows.
The white flame was almost instantly dissipated by a single blow, and the dense fist shadows all landed firmly on the fire spirit king’s body, causing its abdominal wound to rupture. The crimson essence core that was flickering in it was revealed.
Liu Ming’s eyes flashed, and dense fist shadows suddenly turned back. A fierce palm closed and pierced into its abdomen with great speed.
But at this moment, the fire spirit king, who seemed to be dying, suddenly exploded itself, turning into circles of white flames.
At such a close range, it was impossible for Liu Ming to dodge it. The white flames rolled and swarmed Liu Ming in it.
Seeing this situation later, Zang Xuan was naturally shocked!
But at this moment, “swoosh“.
A cluster of white light burst out of the white flame, blasting desperately toward the entrance of the canyon.
In the white light, there was a scorched black figure; it was the fire spirit king, but its size was several times smaller than before, and its breath became extremely weak. After a few flickers, it escaped for eight hundred meters.
Zang Xuan, who had just reacted, wanted to cast a spell to catch up quickly, but it was obviously too late.
But at this moment, a whistling sound came from the white flame sea. A cloud of black gas was rushing out in a blue.
In the black gas, Liu Ming held a black bone shield in front of him in one hand. On the surface, there were nine skull phantasms humming faintly. The speed was so fast that it almost caught up with the fire spirit king. It was already behind the fire spirit king in a moment.
The fire spirit king seemed to know that it could not run away. Suddenly, the escape light stopped, and it then abruptly turned around. It spouted a bunch of bright red blood flames that turned into giant fireballs.
Liu Ming’s heart shuddered. He suddenly lifted the small shield in his hand. It shook and became ten meters huge. The nine skulls also became the size of a basin, and all their mouths were opened at the same time.
“Puff puff puff!”
The three bright red fireballs did not even burst, and they were all sucked in at the moment they touched the nine skull phantasms.
Then there was another “bang“.
Liu Ming appeared in front of the weakened fire spirit king after a blur. He arm blurred and pierced into its abdomen, snatching out the crimson essence core.
The fire spirit king screamed. Its body collapsed instantly when the essence core got off his body, leaving only the twelve bright red spiritual power crystals in the air.
Liu Ming took a long breath, put the bone shield away, and collected the twelve crystals in his palm. He then turned around and flew in the direction of Zang Xuan not far away. He landed lightly in the huge pit.
“Finally, the fire spirit king is dead. This time thanks to Brother Liu’s extraordinary strength.” Zang Xuan naturally saw Liu Ming killing the fire spirit king from a distance. Even though his face was extremely pale, he was still very excited.
After Liu Ming sneered, he raised his hand to keep away the Golden Fallen Sand. He spread his hands; one palm had an essence core and another palm had twelve crystals.
He slowly said, “Brother Zang is indispensable in killing the fire spirit king this time. The twelve spiritual power crystals of the fire spirit king are excellent materials for forging and refining elixir, and this fire spirit king essence core is better than the fire spirit essence core. It can be used to forge fire attribute superb spiritual weapon. The two are of equal value. We both take one of them. What does Brother Zang think?”
“In this case, I’ll choose this fire spirit king essence core.” Zang Xuan wasn’t polite on this. After thinking, he chose the golden essence core in Liu Ming’s hand.
Liu Ming smiled slightly and threw the essence core out, and he kept the twelve spiritual power crystals into the Sumeru Snail. These spiritual power crystals were necessary materials to refine elixir that increases spiritual power in the later stage of the Condensation Period. Although they were as good as the essence, he needed these at this moment.
As a result, Liu Ming and Zang Xuan were naturally happy. They took some elixirs, and after a short rest, they started to work separately in the pit.
Among them, Zang Xuan picked up some fire attribute crystal stones in the giant pit, then he took out a diamond shaped disc array with a faint red light, searching for something in the giant pit.
Liu Ming also took out a light blue talisman. After throwing it in the air, it instantly turned into a few light blue texts that swirled around him. He chanted while making gestures.
After a while, the two of them changed their expressions at the same time and couldn’t help but glance at each other.
“It’s strange that the precious treasure, crystal pillar, is obviously destroyed, but the fire spirit aura here has not weakened at all?” Zang Xuan first said with a weird expression.
“Indeed, and it even seems to be thicker than before. This doesn’t make sense indeed. Unless the crystal pillar we put down is not the thing that caused this world to change, the real treasure is something else.” Liu Ming also breathed a sigh of relief and said.
This time, Zang Xuan just nodded, then he stopped talking and pointed at the disc in the air.
Liu Ming also made a gesture to use some kind of mystic arts.
The disc in Zang Xuan’s hand trembled at almost the same time. It immediately flew out with a dazzling red light. After shaking, it flew to the sky above the center of the giant pit, and it kept spinning.
On Liu Ming’s side, several blue runes next to him also flew out, lightly falling in the air below the same position of the disc, flashing with a faint blue light.
“It seems that there is nothing wrong here!”
Seeing this, Liu Ming narrowed his eyes and said lightly.
“En, the entire fire spirit tribe are keeping emitting fire spirit aura at this point. If there is a real treasure, it must be below this place.” Zang Xuan also replied without any objection.
The place they were talking about was the place where the huge crystal pillar had been put down. After a few moments, they all came to the vicinity.
After Liu Ming looked up and down the ground a few times, he suddenly took a deep breath and grabbed in the air with one hand. A black bead suddenly appeared in his palm. When the black gas came out, he punched at the ground.
With a loud bang, the entire huge pit was shaken. A big hole suddenly appeared, and visible red rays emitted from it right away.
“It seems that we really have to go down and take a look.” After Liu Ming saw this, he retrieved his fist and spoke calmly to Zang Xuan.
Zang Xuan also nodded again and again with a strange gaze.
After ten minutes, a thousand meters below the center of the giant pit!
Liu Ming stared blankly at a scarlet cauldron while being covered by yellow and black mist.
The cauldron was about forty meters tall. Its surface was densely inscribed with red, yellow and blue rune. The cauldron cover was opened wide. White mist was coming up from the cauldron, and tri-color flames were emitted from it from time to time. The nearby fire spirit aura quickly condensed into crimson red crystals, but they quickly dissipated into wisps of red clouds and drifted upward.
Zang Xuan, who was shrouded in purple light nearby, looked at the giant cauldron in front of him with shock.
“The fire-attribute spiritual power emitted by this cauldron is really unheard of. It seems that this treasure must have caused the change in this world.” Zang Xuan spoke to Liu Ming.
“Why, did Brother Zang figure out the origin of this cauldron?” Liu Ming’s expression moved, and he glanced at the purple-eyed young man next to him.
“Brother Liu must be joking. I was born in the border of the Middle Sky Continent, how can I see such treasures? However, this cauldron contains unfathomable fire spirit aura, and it must be something with a lot of history. By the way, Brother Liu is knowledgeable. Do you know what this is?” Zang Xuan laughed and said.
After repeated fierce battles in Small Flame World, and he witnessed Liu Ming’s extraordinary strength, he naturally put away his arrogance and became very polite during the conversation.
“Brother Zang is too modest. I admit that I’m knowledgeable, but I can’t recognize what this is.” Liu Ming shook his head and said.
“Regardless of the origin of this thing, let us move it together to the surface first before thinking about it. What do you think?” The purple eyes flashed, and he suddenly suggested as such.
“Alright.” Liu Ming just thought for a while, and nodded solemnly.
Zang Xuan was overjoyed when he heard the words. He made a gesture and his body flashed in purple light…
After a while, from the big hole in the center of the canyon’s huge pit, a tri-color fire pillar suddenly rose into the sky. After that, the entire ground shook violently. The crimson giant cauldron slowly emerged from the pit inch by inch. When it got out of the pit, it moved to the side and landed heavily on the ground.
Two figures rushed out of the hole again. After turning blurred, they landed on both sides of the giant cauldron.
It was Liu Ming and Zang Xuan, but both were panting and sweating profusely.
“I didn’t expect this thing to be so heavy. If it weren’t for you and me, I’m afraid no one can really get it out from below.” Zang Xuan panted slightly, then said with a wry smile.
“But this also shows that the origin of this thing is extraordinary. I’m now worried about how to put this treasure away. You and I have tried it underground before. Whether it is the treasure of Sumeru or the storage amulet, it is impossible to keep this cauldron.” Liu Ming said with a frown.
