After a while, the insect finally stopped devouring the spiritual fluid in the bowl, and its original pale golden transparent body became a bit solid.
Seeing this, Liu Ming immediately waved one hand, and the faint golden insect flew out from the bowl into his hand. He observed it carefully.
This juvenile mind imitation insect resembled a silkworm insect. There was only a rice-sized eye on top of its head. The whole body was golden. As soon as it fell into Liu Ming’s hands, its body kept wriggling. It even spat out some light green liquid from time to time.
Liu Ming then remembered that the insect hadn’t recognized the master. With a move of his mind, he waved his sleeve to launch several green flags. They separated at each corner and disappeared into the ground.
After another gesture, a ten meters green array appeared at his feet.
He gently placed the juvenile insect in the middle of the array, bit his finger, and dropped a drop of blood essence on the golden juvenile insect. He chanted at the same time.
At the next moment, several green spiritual waves with the size of the bowl blasted out from the middle of the array, forming a light screen to cover the juvenile insect in it. Green runes came out of the array and went into the juvenile insect.
After a while the wiggling juvenile insect gradually calmed down in the light screen. It laid on the ground motionlessly.
Seeing this, Liu Ming stretched out a white finger and tapped it lightly, trying to communicate with psychic.
What he didn’t expect was that as soon as his finger touched the juvenile insect, a faint strange mental power passed through his finger; it became increasingly strong.
This made Liu Ming stunned slightly. He immediately chanted, channeling waves of green runes at the juvenile insect.
After another half hour, the unfamiliar mental power from the insect finally gradually became intimate with it; it continued to grow over time.
After a brief communication with Liu Ming, it finally confirmed Liu Ming as its master. When he touched it previously, the insect had been copying his mental power.
He was finally overjoyed. He kept channeling mental power to communicate with it.
After another day and night, the insect’s mental power finally reached the same level as Liu Ming’s mental power.
At this point, he finally breathed a sigh of relief. He waved to cancel the array, then he held the juvenile insect in his palm. He made a gesture to pour spiritual power into the Celestial Tablet in the sea of consciousness.
After Liu Ming’s vision turned dark, he entered the mysterious space.
This time, he didn’t see Luo Hu’s figure in the gray space.
Liu Ming had become accustomed to this Luo Hu’s unpredictable move. He walked to the Celestial Tablet. After using Divine Thought to communicate with the juvenile insect in his palm, he ordered it to release the mental power and poured it into the Illusive Demonic Pupil.
This golden juvenile insect closed its eye, and it released a powerful mental power as it flew toward the Illusive Demonic Pupil.
There was a “hum.”
At the next moment, Liu Ming only felt a buzz in his Divine Thought. His vision turned blurred and he had already entered the illusion again.
The Demonized Lan Xi, who was not far away, pounced at him like a ferocious ghost…
After a dozen minutes, Liu Ming fought fiercely with the Demonized Lan Xi, and they finally died together. He then returned to the mysterious space again with a satisfied expression.
Liu Ming looked at the juvenile insect in his hand and saw that it seemed to have entered a dormant state due to the consumption of mental power. He immediately kept it in a small spiritual pet bag with a slight smile.
After he had done all this, he took a long breath and glanced around the room at random. He found that the golden brown spiritual fluid still exuded traces of warmness; it was obviously still effective.
With a thought, he remembered the eight-legged sea monster egg that he couldn’t hatch previously.
At that time, that insect egg had a weak aura; its vitality was almost close to nothing, thus it couldn’t be hatched. Maybe the spiritual fluid of the thousands years old spirit turtle’s blood essence would be equally effective on it.
Liu Ming thought about this in his heart, and immediately took out the insect egg from the Sumeru Snail around his waist, and gently put it into the spiritual fluids.
As expected, in the small bowl, the golden water vapor went into it again, and the surface of the insect egg glowed with blue gleams, gradually emitting signs of life. However, as compared to the situation of the mind imitation insect eggs, it was clearly a few times slower.
It seemed that this insect egg still needed a long time to be able to recover.
When Liu Ming saw this, he was still overjoyed. After thinking for a while, he took out the gourd container where the blood essence was previously kept. He made a gesture, and the gourd trembled slightly before releasing a white glow. After the glow surged, it sucked the eight-legged sea monster’s egg together with the spiritual fluid into the gourd.
Liu Ming’s sleeves trembled, and the gourd in his hand disappeared instantly. After he touched the Sumeru Ring on his fingers, he showed a trace of satisfaction.
After that, he sat cross-legged again, closed his eyes and adjusted his breath.
Half a month later, the impact brought by the auction slowly dissipated.
During this period of time, Liu Ming would use the mind imitation insect to enter the illusion of the mysterious space every day to fight against the Demonized Lan Xi. Then, he would also take some time to inspect the situation in the Bai Lian Pavilion. His affinity with the two forgers in the shop also gradually increased.
On this day, Liu Ming once again disguised himself as the muscular man with black face and came to Bat Clan’s shop.
When Liu Ming stepped into the shop, the middle-aged shopkeeper in black clothes greeted him with a smile.
“Mr. Ye, please go up to the third floor and sit down for a while. Our princess instructed us that if mister came, I have to notify her immediately. She will be here in a moment.” The shopkeeper in black clothes said respectfully.
Liu Ming nodded slightly without speaking.did not speak. He walked to the third floor by himself.
After a dozen minutes, Liu Ming was tasting the bitterness of the spirit tea in an elegant room on the third floor.
At this moment, the door of the elegant room was gently pushed open, and Madam Wan walked in again with a black veil on her face.
“Sorry for letting Mr. Ye wait for so long.” The young woman in black clothes walked to Liu Ming and sat down slowly. She said warmly.
“Madam, don’t be polite.” Liu Ming replied politely.
“Mr. Ye is here this time, is it that you have a decision about my suggestion previously?” The woman in black clothes said with a chuckle.
“Since madam mentioned this matter again, I will say it straight. After some careful consideration, I feel that madam’s proposal is fair and reasonable. Therefore, I decided to sell all cold condensing pills in your shops in exchange for green condensing fruit and spirit stone. However, you have to agree to two conditions.” Liu Ming said with a straight face and in a deep voice.
“As long as mister can provide us with cold condensing pill, just state your conditions. I will try my best to fulfill it.” The woman in black shirt said with a smile in her eyes.
“First, all transactions with your store must be kept strictly confidential; no news should be disclosed. Once anyone knows about it, all transactions will be stopped. Second, I will need some other auxiliary materials in the alchemy process, so I hope you can help me collect them together.” Liu Ming said calmly.
“It is a great honor for Mr. Ye to trust our store and sell the elixir to our store. There is no problem with these two conditions.” The young woman in black clothes agreed swiftly.
“Very well, next time I come, I hope I can exchange for another batch of green condensing fruit.” Liu Ming said, took out a white jade box from his sleeve and placed it in front of the young woman in black clothes.
The young woman in black clothes flicked her finger. After the jade box opened, two elixirs with green light were revealed. There were two earth grade cold condensing pills; one with four elixir patterns and one with five elixir patterns.
After the young woman checked elixir carefully, she was happy at first, but then she frowned slightly. She spoke again after a pause.
“Mr. Ye, the best quality green condensing fruit in our store is around eight hundred years old. I don’t know if mister wants it. If you need higher quality, I can ask my men to harvest it, but you may have to wait for a while.”
“Eight hundred years… it’s fine by me.” Liu Ming thought about it for a while before making a decision.
Although the eight hundred years old green condensing fruit was definitely not as effective as the thousands years old green condensing fruit, at the moment, he just wanted to use his spare time to refine some elixirs and change some spirit stones to make up for the spirit stone deficit brought by the auction.
Another reason was that, except for a few earth grade cold condensing pills, he had sold out the other lower quality pills before the auction. He also needed to take some pellet grade elixir to improve spiritual power.
“Thank you Mr. Ye for your understanding. Next time you visit, our shop will have the thousands years old green condensing fruit for you.” The woman in black clothes seemed to have already prepared in advance. She smiled and took out a green wooden box.
“Mr. Ye, these six eight hundred years old green condensing fruits should be enough to exchange for the two earth grade elixirs right?” The woman in black clothes opened the wooden box and placed it in front of Liu Ming.
Liu Ming took out a green condensing fruit and placed it in front of him. His thoughts turned sharply. According to his estimation, the eight hundred years old green condensing fruit would cost nearly two hundred thousand spirit stones. Six for two earth grade elixirs were of course more than enough.
“Deal, these are some other materials that my master needs, please collect them for me.”
As Liu Ming said, he just got up and took the wooden box, and he gave a jade slip to the woman. It was recorded with the materials that he needed. There were also some forging materials listed in it.
“Mr. Ye don’t have to be polite, I will send someone to collect all these materials as soon as possible for mister.” The young woman in black clothes put the jade slip away without seeing it, and she said with a smile.
“Thank you, Madam. I have other things to do, so I will go now.” Liu Ming bowed his hand and got up to leave.
