Liu Ming saw the Demonized Lan Xi suddenly appearing in front of him, then he flashed back without thinking. He made a gesture, and a black gas was rolling out of his body.
A roar of dragon and tiger!
A black mist dragon rushed out from his body. After circling in the air, it split into two; a cloud of black gas also condensed and transformed into a black mist tiger.
At the same time, Liu Ming shook his sleeves, and the Golden Fallen Sand rolled out, quickly turning into a golden sand mist covering his whole body.
Just how terrifying the Demonized Lan Xi was, Liu Ming knew clearly in his heart. He would be killed instantly if he was careless.
In the next moment, a fluctuation occurred behind him. A ten meters huge black demon claw phantasm appeared strangely, clawing at the vital spot on his back.
Liu Ming made a gesture. The golden sand mind turned into a giant golden fist, clashing with the black demon claw.
At the same time, he didn’t bother about turning around; he stomped in the air to stop his retreating momentum and blasted forward.
As soon as the giant golden fist touched the black claw behind him, it collapsed into a sky full of sand.
As the black mist tumbled around the black claw, Lan Xi’s figure was revealed in a flash.
Liu Ming was more than a hundred meters away at this moment. After he turned around, he made a gesture. The sand turned and rolled at the Demonized Lan Xi.
Fang Lan Xi’s figure collapsed with a muffled noise, but it was just an afterimage.
The next moment, a dozen meters away in front of Liu Ming, a black figure appeared. It was the Demonized Lan Xi.
As soon as he appeared, his arms turned blurred. A pair of huge black claws suddenly emerged from the black mist and grabbed Liu Ming at a lightning speed.
Liu Ming was surprised. As it was too late to recall the Golden Fallen Sand, he shook his hands and Heavy Water Droplets revealed on both his hands; both his fists were even covered with layers of crimson scales. After groaning, the black mist dragon and tiger charged at Lan Xi together.
In front of Liu Ming, one of Lan Xi’s giant black claws tightly clutched the dragon’s neck while another claw slammed at the tiger.
The black dragon and tiger could only hold slightly for a moment, then they were crushed by the giant before being pinched by the huge black claws, turning into black mist and spreading out.
At the same time, the Demonized Lan Xi’s figure suddenly shook, and he instantly faded out in front of Liu Ming.
Liu Ming seemed to be ready for it. He launched both fists toward Lan Xi.
“Poof“, Lan Xi looked ferocious, then his figure suddenly disappeared with a twist.
Liu Ming sensed that it was bad. Before he could turn around, he felt the space around him became tight like it was as hard as fine steel.
Then, a phantasm flashed in front of him. Lan Xi teleported in front of him. As his vision was blurred, a sharp pain came from his shoulders.
His two arms were torn down by Lan Xi’s lightning; blood spattered out like a flower.
Liu Ming’s heart sank. Before he had time to react, he felt a chill in his neck, and he flew into the air. The surrounding scenery also quickly rotated.
In the next moment, he blacked out and fell into darkness.
After a “buzz” in Liu Ming’s mind, he opened his eyes and found that he was already in the gray and mysterious space.
At this moment, his face was pale; his hand was still on the stone tablet, but a burst of fatigue came from his mind. Obviously, activating Illusive Demonic Pupil exhausted a lot of his mental power.
As soon as he retracted his arm, he walked to a corner and sat down cross-legged, using his multitasking skill. While meditating to restore mental power, he was recalling the scene of the battle with the Demonized Lan Xi.
Compared to the last time Luo Hu activated on the Illusive Demonic Pupil that he was almost killed instantly, under the situation that his spiritual power and strength were improved as he advanced to the later stage, he could at least last for a few seconds.
Of course, Liu Ming would not just be satisfied with this. He kept repeating the battle process in his mind, carefully pondering every detail and mistake.
After all, in a battle with Powerhouse, as long as there is a slight difference, it will be severely injured, and severely injured on the spot.
After two days of meditating, he felt that his mental power had recovered by about 80%.
At this time, he had a detailed calculation again and a new plan for combat methods.
Liu Ming finished thinking. After taking a long breath, he stood up and strode toward the Celestial Tablet again.
One day after a month.
On an open and flat ground, a green figure was quickly moving among the gray-white tall stone pillars.
A few tens of meters away behind him, another black phantasm chased at a faster speed.
The black phantasm didn’t seem to care about the stone pillar in front of him at all. With a wave of his arm, several stone pillars were shattered.
For a time, rumbling sounds came from the stone forest, sand and rocks flying in all directions.
It was Liu Ming and the Demonized Lan.
In the past ten attempts, Liu Ming can be said to have tried his best.
However, neither Sword Controlling Technique, Golden Fallen Sand nor Tiger Dragon Hell Prison could hurt the Demonized Lan Xi at all. Even if he attacked with Heavy Water Droplets and the crimson scales, he could barely resist the giant claw phantasm for a while.
So this time he decided to change his strategy. He first tried to see how long he could escape.
After all, in a real battle, running away if the win rate was low was also a life-saving tactic.
Regarding speed alone, Liu Ming knew he was not the opponent of the Demonized Lan Xi. But with the help of the complex terrain in the stone forest, he kept the distance between him and Lan Xi at several hundred meters.
However, after rushing out of the stone forest, he lost his cover, and the distance between the two slowly began to get close.
Just when the distance was about several ten meters, Liu Ming, who was in front, stopped abruptly and made a quick turn in the air. A small crimson sword was also launched from his sleeves.
Suddenly, there was a burst of whistling sound. After the crimson sword made a clear chime, it turned into a crimson sword rainbow of thirty meters huge. It blasted toward Lan Xi with a cloud of sand.
The Demonized Lan Xi was only slightly distorted, and the crimson rainbow brushed past him. It only tore a bit of demonic qi on his body. But in the blink of an eye, the demonic qi was recovered again.
In the next moment, Lan Xi’s figure appeared thirty meters away.
At this time, he couldn’t recall the spiritual sword in time.
Liu Ming’s thoughts turned sharply. He closed his hands together and rubbed lightly. The two Heavy Water Droplets combined, then he spat out a few lumps of blood essence. The blood essence turned into blood mist that instantly wrapped the black bead.
The surface of the bead immediately burst into light. There were about twenty enchantments that appeared on the bead.
Liu Ming’s arms surged with black energy, and he threw the bead backward.
As soon as the explosion sounded, the bead turned into a blur of black light and blasted backward.
The Demonized Lan Xi lifted up with one hand to catch the black light transformed by the Heavy Water Droplet.
Seeing this, Liu Ming suddenly flashed a sharp look in his eyes. The tactics in his hands changeds.
After the Heavy Water Droplet shuddered slightly, the black light ball burst out of thin air. The billowing black water vapor swarmed Lan Xi who was caught off guard.
After a scream in the black water vapor, the Demonized Lan Xi rushed out in a flash. His body was completely wounded. At the same time, the palm that he launched just now was even bleeding severely.
But the next moment, black demonic qi surged crazily from all his wounds. After a few seconds, the wounds were recovered.
But this move obviously angered the Demonized Lan Xi completely.
As soon as his eyes flashed in black light, he screamed, jumped forward and disappeared in the air.
Liu Ming only felt the gust of wind above his head, and a black claw scratched down hastily.
Liu Ming’s complexion changed drastically. He hurriedly made a gesture, and a small black shield flew out of him, then it turned into a huge bone shield.
Nine skull phantasms appeared on the shield at the same time. After making a weird sound, they rushed toward the giant claw in the air.
At this moment, Liu Ming retreated backward again.
When several skull phantasms got eliminated, Liu Ming suddenly felt cold in his chest, and another black claw penetrated his chest from behind.
His heart sank. As he turned back and looked, he realized that the Demonized Lan Xi had appeared behind him from nowhere. He then lost all consciousness in the next moment.
Eight months later, he was still in this stone forest.
A hundred meters above a small hill, a golden sphere of thirty meters was spinning fast in the void.
At this moment, with a heart-wrenching groan, several black mists gushed out from the golden sphere.
The golden sphere shattered inch by inch and turned into a sky full of sand.
Black dragon and black giant tiger flashed out, but they dissipated after only a moment.
After the black mist dissipated, two figures fell from the sky, Liu Ming and the Demonized Lan Xi.
At this time, Liu Ming’s face was pale and bloodless. There was a big hole on his chest, and the hole was wrapped by black demonic qi.
He resisted the severe pain and opened one eye to look toward Lan Xi, who had already lost consciousness and had an incomplete body. He then smiled slightly.
The next moment, he appeared in the mysterious space with a pale face.
This was the first time Liu Ming killed the Demonized Lan Xi after more than seventy battles. Although it was a suicide attack that was not applicable in actual combat, it was still a huge improvement compared to before.
After all, even if someone of the later stage of the Crystallization Period faced Lan Xi’s demonized strength, he might not really be able to even perish together with Lan Xi.
Of course, this was not to say that his strength was really stronger than the later stage of the Crystallization Period. After all, his ability to do this was the result of so many battles.
But even so, his actual combat ability was still worlds apart from before entering the Illusive Demonic Pupil.
The Crystallization Period cultivator of the later stage is hard to say, but if it is against the early stage of the Crystallization Period opponent in the general sense, it should be 70-80% sure to kill the opponent.
Liu Ming thought about it this way, walked to the corner of the space, closed his eyes and continued to meditate cross-legged. RP
