Last time when Demon Flying Skull and Bone Scorpion advanced, they both experienced Thunder Calamity, but nothing happened this time.
Could there be something strange about this?
Liu Ming was perplexed in his minds.
In this moment, a voice suddenly came from his ears.
“Master!” The Demon Flying Skull in front of him opened and closed his mouth, making a sound. It was no longer the strange laughter, but the childish voice of a boy.
“You can talk too?” Although Liu Ming had some expectations, he was still delighted in his heart.
Being able to speak out meant that Demon Flying Skull was no longer the simple-minded demon, but it had gained intelligence like Bone Scorpion.
“Yes, Master, I slept for a long time, and when I woke up, my mind became a lot more clear.” Demon Flying Skull’s mouth opened and closed, saying in a sweet and childish voice.
Liu Ming nodded and pressed his palm on the top of Demon Flying Skull’s head. Suddenly, a few wisps of black gas appeared and slowly went into its head.
The Demon Flying Skull moved nervously, but it quickly became calm.
Liu Ming’s expression eased, then he retracted his palm.
The blood pact rune he planted in it was not weakened by the sense of self of Demon Flying Skull.
“Demon Flying Skull, let me see your current abilities.” Liu Ming thought slightly, then he commanded.
Hearing this, Demon Flying Skull hovered in front of a rock wall. Its demon pupils flashed red; its body appeared a faint green glow; black gas also tumbled on its body surface.
At the same time, it shrugged it’s green hair, launching endless hairs at the stone wall.
After a burst of dense sound, a dense cluster of tiny holes appeared on the black yin yuan stone.
Liu Ming raised his eyebrows in surprise. This yin yuan stone was not an ordinary stone. It absorbed a lot of evil yin qi all year round, so its hardness was the same as the ordinary magical weapon. Unexpectedly, it was easily pierced by the green hair of Demon Flying Skull!
Demon Flying Skull screaked, and its scattered long hair suddenly joined together and slashed down toward the rock wall.
A green light flashed!
On the hard rock wall that was originally pitch black, a long and narrow crack as deep as a foot appeared.
Such an attack had fully demonstrated the strength of its Condensation State later stage.
Demon Flying Skull seemed to be a bit addicted. It opened its mouth and shot a green flame toward the rock wall.
As soon as the green flame touched the pitch black rock, it immediately burned, reflecting a green light in the cave.
Then there was a loud bang.
After the entire yin cave shook violently, a big hole was burnt on the thick rock wall, billowing green smoke.
“Stop it! If you continue like this, this Tai Yin Cave will be demolished by you. By the time, the guys in the law enforcement hall may want me to compensate for the contribution points.” Liu Ming hurriedly waved his hand and stopped Demon Flying Skull that didn’t intend to stop.
Demon Flying Skull’s hair attack and green flame attack were much stronger than before the advancement. Its strength was no different from the general Condensation Period later stage cultivator.
Coupled with Bone Scorpion, he now had two powerful helpers. Even if he encountered a strong enemy in the Crystallization Period, he already dared to fight head-on.
Demon Flying Skull cackled, and the black gas around it rolled around. Its figure turned blurred and loomed in the mist.
At the next moment, as the black gas faded, nine Demon Flying Skull figures flashed out in the air.
“Doppelganger technique?!” Liu Ming was really taken aback.
He saw clearly that these nine Demon Flying Skulls were all real; not phantasm produced by high speed. The middle one was the main body of Demon Flying Skull, exuding the powerful aura of the Condensation Period later stage. The remaining eight clones were slightly weaker; they were only at the Condensation Period early stage.
However, even so, this magical power of transforming one into nine was still extremely powerful!
Even the fire spirit king at the early stage of the Crystallization Period would be held back by it, and it would not be able to get rid of it for a while.
Thinking of this, Liu Ming couldn’t help flashing a fiery expression in his eyes.
In the following time, because the yin qi in the cave was absorbed by the Demon Flying Skull, Liu Ming kept the two spirit pets in the soul-recovering bag, and then sat up cross-legged to meditate.
Although yin qi was almost sucked out by Demon Flying Skull, it was still better than the outside world, so he wouldn’t waste it.
A few days later, Liu Ming, who was sitting cross-legged, only felt a slight tremor on the ground. Then, a blue light flashed and a blue array suddenly appeared under him. As his vision was dazzled, he was already standing in the center of the stone chamber in Tai Yin Cave.
The old man in yellow robe was still sitting cross-legged on the futon in front of the array as if he hadn’t moved at all.
“A few days ago, the spiritual fluctuations in cave five were very violent. It was you who caused it right?” The old man in yellow robe didn’t open his eyes, but he said lightly.
“Replying to senior, it was indeed me.” Liu Ming replied respectfully.
“You can get to this point at such a young age; you are considered having a good aptitude. You can leave now.” The old man in yellow robe waved his hand and stopped talking.
Liu Ming was relieved. After saluting the old man, he hurriedly left the place.
“Piaohong Courtyard has found a good seed.” After Liu Ming walked away, the old man in yellow robe muttered to himself for a while, then he continued to meditate.
As soon as Liu Ming left the canyon where Tai Yin Cave was located, he flew into the sky right away. Not long after, he returned to his cave house.
In the secret room, Liu Ming sat quietly for a while. When his mood was completely calm, he activated his mental power and entered the sea of consciousness.
In the sea of consciousness, the Celestial Tablet in black and white was still suspended quietly. However, in the golden hourglass in the lower half, the silver sand grains were almost full. It seemed that the next spiritual power absorption would happen in one or two months at most.
According to Celestial Tablet’s rules, the spiritual power in his body would be greatly refined. In addition, he would have to stay in that mysterious space for seven or eight years.
According to his last experience, during this period, whether he was practicing spells or alchemy techniques, he would have miraculous effects of doubling the results with less effort.
Especially for the alchemy techniques, he didn’t have to worry about the problem of materials, and he could refine as he wished. Such a treatment was always earnestly long for by any alchemists, and he had been looking forward to it for a long time.
Moreover, this time, Liu Ming planned to have a good chat with Luo Hu about the mysterious bubble.
Since he had a plan, he had to be prepared for such a matter now.
Liu Ming immediately took the icesilk corpse out of the storage amulet and laid it on the ground.
The materials on this rare beastkin insect were very valuable. They were the best materials for forging spiritual weapons.
After Liu Ming dissected its abdomen, he first took out a white silk cocoon the size of a washbasin. It was filled with silvery white silk.
Liu Ming was very impressed with this silk. It was so tough that even the upper grade spiritual weapon could not break it. It was definitely an excellent material for forging spiritual weapons.
He collected the silk very quickly, then he casually processed the other materials.
In the following days, he meditated and cultivated in the cave house. After slightly consolidating his realm and restoring his spiritual power, he left the cave house again.
Half a day later, Liu Ming again stood at the entrance of Taiqing Sect Square.
He looked up at the tall buildings in the distance, then he walked forward with a smile.
Since joining the Taiqing Sect, he had visited this market many times and had gradually become familiar with it.
The green stone square in the middle of Taiqing Sect Square City was mainly a place for the disciples to set up temporary stalls. It was also the most lively place. It sells a lot of things, basically everything.
If one was confident in his own insight and vision, he could even try his luck here to buy low and sell high here.
As for the four main streets connecting the square, they were dominated by shops. Many of which were hired by the outer and inner disciple to open the shop. There were also some families that were attached to the Taiqing Sect sect operating here, but each street had its own emphasis on the items that were sold.
Liu Ming thought for a moment, then he walked towards West Street.
The shops on both sides of the street were full of people. There seemed to be a lot more people than when he came the two previous times, many of whom were wearing outer disciple costumes.
Liu Ming looked thoughtful in his eyes.
Most of the shops here were selling some beast skins, beast bones, and other materials. There were even some shops directly hanging some beastkin specimens at the door.
Liu Ming walked around casually and wandered into a shop.
A middle-aged man in his 30s, dressed in a moon-white gown, was sitting behind the counter. He was reading a thick book in his hand with enjoyment.
Hearing someone coming in, this person quickly stood up with a smile, “Customer, do you have any beastkin materials for sale?”
Liu Ming frowned slightly, and then smiled, “Shopkeeper Gu, an honorable person really forgets things easily; you had already forgotten about me.”
“You’re… Oh, it turns out to be Brother Liu! It has only been a few days, and sir’s strength has improved by a lot. You actually broke through to the Condensation Period later stage. Congratulations.” Liu Ming suddenly said.
The middle-aged man’s name was Gu Jietian. Not long ago, Liu Ming came to the market to sell the fire spirit materials he hunted in Small Flame World, and part of them was sold to this person.
Gu Jietian looked a bit bookish, but he was quite sincere. He almost knew everything about any beastkins, especially beastkin insects, so Liu Ming had a good impression of him.
“The last time I came to the market, it was to buy some elixirs to break through the bottleneck. Only then I was lucky enough to break through to the Condensation Period later stage.” Liu Ming smiled humbly.
“Oh, does Brother Liu have any beastkin materials to sell this time?” After Gu Jietian chuckled, he couldn’t wait to ask. His face was full of expectation.
Liu Ming nodded slightly.
The middle-aged man’s eyes shone when he saw this. He turned his head and instructed the worker to watch the shop, then he excitedly went into the back room with Liu Ming.

“You’re… Oh, it turns out to be Brother Liu! It has only been a few days, and sir’s strength has improved by a lot. You actually broke through to the Condensation Period later stage. Congratulations.” Liu Ming suddenly said. This was said by Liu Ming and not by Gu Jietian?
