With only ten minutes, the red sword light gradually dimmed. Its size was also suppressed to only a foot long, and it was forced back repeatedly.
Liu Ming made a long sigh. He immediately called back the flying sword to defend the oncoming sword shadow, then he flicked his sleeves to release the golden light spots. Poof, the light spots turned into a faint golden sand curtain that spread open.
After that, he formed gestures quickly with both hands and launched several symbols continuously at the sand mist.
With a muffled “bang“, the golden sand mist rolled up and turned into layers of defense to block Liu Ming.
When the young man in brocade saw this, a sneer flashed in his eyes. He shouted as he launched a series of symbols. After the green sword light blurred and became larger, it turned into a hundred meters long giant green python.
This person finally used the real Sword Cultivator’s magical power, transforming the whole flying sword.
With a swing of the green python’s tail, it turned into a series of green phantasm that crashed into the sand curtain formed by Golden Fallen Sand.
Wherever the green light passed through, the sand on the sand curtain’s surface was splashed around. It couldn’t stop the offense of the green light at all.
Immediately after that, a series of crisp sounds came out.
The green python actually broke through several layers of defense. It rushed to the front of Liu Ming in the next moment, then it bit ruthlessly at Liu Ming.
Jin Yuhuan could not help exclaiming when she saw this in the distance.
Sha Tongtian’s long and narrow face showed a hint of coldness. He pointed at the green light, showing no intention of holding back the power.
Liu Ming just shook his shoulders and his figure became blurred. After the sand mist rolled back at him, he disappeared in a flash.
The green giant python’s fierce attack missed.
Seeing this, the young man in brocade’s eyes flashed.
But the next moment, a figure flashed and appeared above the giant green python. After a dragon and tiger roar sounded, Liu Ming who was wrapped in a rolling black mist appeared. When the young man in brocade was in a daze, Liu Ming heavily punched the giant green python’s head with his crimson scales punch.
The giant python got knocked back with a whine. The green light on its body dispersed, and it returned to the green sword.
“Tiger Dragon Hell Prison! This is the inner sect technique, how do you use this technique!?” When Sha Tongtian saw the black gas on Liu Ming’s body, he was taken aback. He immediately remembered something, and his face changed suddenly. He shouted, called back the flying sword, and looked down.
The light on the green flying sword was faintly unstable, and the blade also had some mottled marks. It seemed that its spirit was damaged. The young man in brocade saw this and his gaze condensed.
“This technique is naturally taught by the clan. Do you still want to fight?” Liu Ming said indifferently, retrieving the black gas on his body. He also launched a symbol to retrieve the Golden Fallen Sand into his sleeve.
Sha Tongtian was really a strong enemy. Golden Fallen Sand had strong defensive power. In addition to the fire spirit king, this was the second time it was breached by the Condensation State cultivator.
But his punch just now also caused the opponent to suffer a bit.
“What’s your name, there shouldn’t be someone like you in the outer disciple before. Are you a new disciple?” After the young man in brocade looked at Liu Ming again, he said coldly.
“I’m just an unknown person. Even if I say my name, I’m afraid senior fellow apprentice won’t know it.” Liu Ming said with laughter.
“Okay, I remember you. Since you insist on helping this girl, I’ll let you be. But next time, if you dare to stand in front of me again, it won’t be so easy like this.” Sha Tongtian said with his eyes flashed coldly. He turned around and flew away without hesitation.
When Liu Ming saw this, he was naturally stunned. He also thought about it.
“I didn’t expect that Brother Liu is so strong. You can actually force him back.” Jin Yuhuan obviously didn’t think so much. When she saw the young man in brocade escaping, she immediately landed beside Liu Ming and said with joy.
“Not at all. I’m just being lucky. This man as an inner disciple, he must have a lot of hidden means. I can only do so much. I’m just curious. In the market previously, I had heard that this man is pestering miss. Now he even came to this deep valley so far away, do you know the special reason for it?” Liu Ming chuckled and turned the thread of discussion suddenly.
“This…” Jin Yuhuan’s expression stiffened.
“If Miss Jin can’t talk about it, take it as I ask nothing.” Liu Ming smiled slightly and said lightly.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Liu is overstating it. It’s all your effort to be able to force this person back today, how can I lie to you again. Their Sha Family has been conspiring to get the treasure left by my ancestors, so he keeps pestering me.” Jin Yuhuan’s expression changed and said vaguely.
“Really?” Liu Ming showed a spurious smile on his face.
Jin Yuhuan felt guilty being glanced at by him. She subconsciously avoided his gaze and looked down.
“In that case, you and I should take out your ancestral treasure as soon as possible, lest causing more trouble.” Liu Ming smiled slightly, turned and walked into the depths of the cave.
The woman’s words were vague; she must have concealed a lot of things, but he was not interested in further questioning. He accompanied this woman because of the pulse connecting spiritual talisman only.
Seeing that Liu Ming did not continue to question, Jin Yuhuan secretly breathed a sigh of relief. She looked at the distant horizon, and then turned and walked into the cave.
“Although Sha Tongtian has left, he may be back later. Now that the guards are gone, it would be troublesome if someone intrudes. Let’s set an array here just in case anything happens.” Liu Ming took two steps, then he suddenly stopped and turned around.
After Jin Yuhuan thought about it, it made sense to her too.
The woman seemed to be well prepared. She was bringing two sets of magical weapons with her.
The two were busy for a while at the entrance of the cave, setting up a defensive array and a detection array. Only then they re-entered the depths of the cave.
Coming to the cool pool again, Jin Yuhuan took out a dark red leather armor and a white jade talisman and gave them to Liu Ming. At the same time, she also took the same thing.
“This cold resistant armor is forged with the silk of thousands of years fire spider. It can resist the cold to a certain extent when worn on the body. Even if we enter the cool pool, it can still protect us. However, its effect can only be unleashed fully with the consumption of spiritual power.” Jin Yuhuan explained without waiting for Liu Ming to ask.
As Liu Ming heard it, he scanned it with Divine Thought. He immediately sensed a searing heat coming out from it. He wore it immediately, then he injected spiritual power into it.
A dark red light flashed on the surface of the leather armor, and a fiery sensation appeared on Liu Ming. At this moment, his body seemed to be in a cloud of a scorching sun, and the surrounding cold disappeared all of sudden.
“The icesilk beastkin insect is very cunning, and its ice magical power is also very powerful. If we fight it in the cool pool, it will be too dangerous. We need to lure it out of the water.” After Jin Yuhuan put on the same leather armor, she stretched out one white finger and tidied up her, then she said seriously.
“Of course. Miss Jin is so calm, I think you must have a plan. I’m all ears” Liu Ming said with a slight smile.
Upon hearing this, Jin Yuhuan smiled modestly, then she thought for a moment before saying,
“The beastkin insect hides at the bottom of the cool pool all day long; it will not come out easily. But don’t worry about this. I have prepared a special bait that can guarantee luring it out of the pool. This white jade talisman is a conceal talisman, which can temporarily cover up your and my breath. When it comes out of the water, you and I will make moves together. One will block the entrance of the cool pool, and the other will try to kill it as soon as possible.”
“If you want to trap this insect, isn’t it better to set a restraining trap array near the pool?” Liu Ming suggested.
“No no, this icesilk is very sensitive to the power of enchantment. If we set an array here, I guess the icesilk won’t even come out of the cool pool.” Jin Yuhuan said quickly.
“So that’s the case, then let’s follow the junior sister’s plan.” Liu Ming nodded and said nothing more.
This woman knows the icesilk in this pond so clearly, it seems that she has been studying it for a long time. This is great. With such a careful plan, I believe we can successfully get rid of the icesilk.
The two decided the plan, then they acted immediately.
Jin Yuhuan took out a half-foot-long wooden box from her waist. There was a faint yellow talisman attached to it.
The woman tore off the talisman without hesitation and opened the wooden box.
As the lid of the box was opened, a cloud of white smoke and cold air rolled out from it. A fist-sized white insect egg suddenly appeared in a flash under the cold air. At the same time, a faint fishy smell came out from above.
The woman took out the insect egg carefully. Her figure flicked and appeared at the corner of the cave which was the farthest from the water pool, then she buried it firmly in the mud.
At this time, Jin Yuhuan’s figure flicked and hid in another corner near the water pool, and she smashed the jade talisman in her hand.
After faint white lights flashed, the figure of this woman gradually blended into the surroundings.
“So this is the bait…”
Liu Ming glanced at the unknown insect egg thoughtfully, then he also smashed the talisman and hid by another side.
After half an hour passed, the originally calm water surface of the cool pool began to ripple, and then a powerful wave of spiritual power mixed with bursts of cold air came out of the cool pool.
“It really works. The unknown insect egg can bait out the icesilk of the Condensation State later stage so easily. I think it’s not an ordinary insect egg.” Liu Ming’s expression moved, thinking so in his mind.
