Seeing this, Liu Ming immediately flew toward the direction of the black light.
After a while, a black light flashed over the woods, revealing his figure. As he looked down, he was startled.
But on a high ground in the woods, the man surnamed Hua and the middle-aged cultivator were waving their formation flags with sweats all over them; they kept making gestures to maintain a defensive array.
A dozen white beams of light emerged from the messy formation flags around them, forming a white light curtain that protected them in it.
There was also a man in gray robe lying beside them. His body was covered in blood, not sure whether he was dead or alive.
Outside the array, a muscular man with a yin yang face was swinging his giant punches with a ferocious smile, waving a huge fist with a grinning face, constantly smashing the light curtain.
In the loud rumbling sound, the entire light curtain looked shaky.
However, when the people in the array heard something moving in high speed, they quickly turned their heads and noticed the escape light of Liu Ming.
“Envoy Liu!” When the man surnamed Hua saw Liu Ming, he shouted with joy.
After a few flickers, Liu Ming stopped in the sky above the array. After lowering his head to see that the people were unharmed, he felt relieved. After that, he glanced at the muscular man with a yin yang face.
This person didn’t use any spiritual weapon, and he was able to shake the entire defensive array with his huge strength alone. Liu Ming didn’t dare to underestimate this guy.
Although this array had nothing special, it was specially bestowed by the Taiqing Sect to some disciples stationed abroad for temporary defense when encountering a powerful enemy. Generally speaking, it definitely wouldn’t be broken for a while with the strength that was below the Crystallization Period.
But when Liu Ming’s eyes fell on the muscular man with a yin yang face, his expression moved slightly. He said abruptly,
“Yin Yang Strong Demon!”
“Oh, you actually recognized me? It seems that you are also under the Taiqing Sect, and you are an outer disciple. Very good, it seems that I really have good results today.” The muscular man with a yin yang face stopped punching and looked up a Liu Ming. His eyes revealed a hint of murderous intention.
Liu Ming gave a cold snort and did not answer. A black gas surged from his body, then he dived down from mid-air with a hastened speed. He got near to the head of the muscular man with a series of afterimages, and he threw a punch.
A group of black fist shadows flashed out immediately.
The muscular man with a yin yang face didn’t expect Liu Ming to move so fast. A trace of surprise appeared on his hideous face, but he also launched a punch without fear. The huge punch shadow seemed to bring a hint of green flame.
“Boom!”, the black light and green flames broke apart.
The muscular man with a yin yang face staggered back a dozen steps in a row before he could stand still; his face suddenly looked gloomy.
On the other side, Liu Ming’s figure fluttered in the air for a turn, diverting away the huge force of the muscular man, and he landed gently in front of the array.
This means of leveraging the power was shown with extreme proficiency. This was the skill he learnt while fighting with the Demonized Lan Xi in the Illusive Demonic Pupil’s illusion.
At this moment, as the black gas tumbled on his body, two mist dragons and a tiger were roaring at the muscular man.
“Tiger Dragon Hell Prison!” The muscular man with a yin yang face seemed to recognize this technique immediately. His face was distorted slightly. After a few sneers, he actually turned around and flew away in a green escape light.
Liu Ming was stunned in sight of this. He turned his head and said to the two people beside him,
“Master Hua, your spiritual power has been exhausted. You should go back to the market soon. I will chase that evil cultivator.”
After saying that, before the two of them could reply, a black light flashed on his body. He rose into the air in an instant, chasing in the direction where yin yang face the muscular man escaped.
For the rank 13th Yin Yang Strong Demon, Taiqing Sect offered a reward of thirty thousand contribution points, so he would not easily let go of the opportunity to earn contribution points.
After all, he had such a large contribution point debt.
On the high ground in the woods, Master Hua and the other person looked at each other. Such a change happened so fast that the two still hadn’t recovered from the shock, Liu Ming and the muscular man with a yin yang face had both left.
The two of them escaped from the dead, how would they dare to stay here more? They hurriedly kept the formation flags on the ground, carried the unconscious man, and immediately flew toward the market.
Liu Ming and Yin Yang Strong Demon had flown for more than a hundred miles in a moment.
He looked at the green light ahead, but a faint of doubt flashed in his eyes.
Yin Yang Strong Demon’s speed was sometimes fast and sometimes slow since he started running. Now he slowed down even more. He didn’t really seem like running away, but he wanted to keep a distance from the market.
Although he didn’t know what the man was planning, Liu Ming had already noticed that this man was at the later stage of the Condensation Period during the previous fight. Facing the cultivator of the same realm, he naturally wouldn’t be afraid. He kept chasing decisively.
After another dozen minutes, the green light in front suddenly stopped above a mountain. Yin Yang Strong Demon smiled hideously with his hands behind his back.
Liu Ming also stopped a hundred meters away, confronting the muscular man.
As soon as he landed, he released his huge mental power and searched the surrounding area carefully.
It turned out that the place was deserted. There were not even a few beasts around, and there were no people lurking nearby. He then looked at the muscular man.
“You’re cultivating Taiqing Sect’s Tiger Dragon Hell Prison, so you should be an inner disciple right? Tsk, I haven’t killed an inner disciple before. Today is the first time.” The muscular man gnashed his teeth and stared at Liu Ming as if looking at a lamb to be slaughtered. He said with a sneer.
“You brought me here, is it because you are afraid of attracting those Real Pellet State masters?” Liu Ming replied calmly after hearing this.
“Since you understand it, then die!” Yin Yang Strong Demon looked at Liu Ming unexpectedly when he heard the words, then said with a hideous smile.
As soon as he spoke, the muscular man’s body became blurred, and he instantly jumped at Liu Ming. He ferociously clawed down with a giant demonic claw that had a layer of green flame.
Liu Ming’s figure scattered and disappeared into a wisp of shadow under the claw attack.
After the muscular man missed his attack, his face looked slightly shocked. He threw a punch toward his side with a ruthless face.
As Liu Ming’s figure just appeared on the other side, a punch was coming at him before he could stand still.
Liu Ming’s complexion also moved. He didn’t expect that the muscular man was huge, but his speed was so fast.
As soon as the afterimage appeared, he disappeared again.
With Liu Ming’s techniques after battling with the Demonized Lanxi for hundreds of rounds in the illusion, even the muscular man’s movements are amazing, but how could he be comparable to Liu Ming?
At this time, Yin Yang Strong Demon’s complexion became unsightly.
Although he was not a pure Physique Cultivator, his speed was rarely matched by anyone in the same realm, but he didn’t even touch the shadow of the opponent twice in a row. He was obviously embarrassed into anger.
He moved his hands and was about to move, but his Divine Thought could no longer sense the presence of the opponent. His face immediately turned astounded.
The next moment, a sharp hot wind suddenly appeared in the ears of the muscular man, and he saw a glimpse of white light from the corner of his eye. His mind turned quickly. He barely dodged the attack by tiling his body for ninety degrees.
Even so, there was a fierce pain on the muscular man’s face. He was obviously hurt by the white light.
Yin Yang Strong Demon’s body flashed with a green light, and he immediately retreated for a hundred meters. His back was drenched in sweats.
If he didn’t dodge in time, half of his head would have been cut off by the white light just now.
“Sword light!” Yin Yang Strong Demon finally saw what that white light was at this moment.
Not far away, Liu Ming in a green robe was standing there, but there was no flying sword around him.
“You are a Sword Cultivator?” Yin Yang Strong Demon said sternly, but a trace of doubt flashed in his eyes.
Although Liu Ming was expressionless and didn’t mean to answer at all, he was slightly surprised.
Just now, he unexpectedly used the finger sword. Together with the elusive movements that he learned from the battles with Lanxi, he thought he could hit the critical spot of the opponent. He didn’t expect it to be dodged.
The rank 13th villain on the life and death list really had some skills.
Liu Ming’s thoughts turned, and he took a step forward right away. After a black gas rolled, he disappeared again.
Yin Yang Strong Demon’s face changed when he saw this. He spat out a small white bone flag and made a gesture, casting a layer of white light curtain around him.
After he did all that, he sensed a chill white light behind him; a loud sound burst out.
A fist covered with purple scales slammed on the light curtain.
A spider web-like crack appeared instantly on the light curtain.
Yin Yang Strong Demon was horrified seeing this.
Although his white bone flag was not a superb spiritual weapon, it was also an upper grade defensive spiritual weapon with 24 enchantments. It was almost shattered by Liu Ming with a single blow.
Liu Ming frowned slightly instead. It was obvious that the white light curtain was a bit sturdier than he expected. It actually blocked the blow of the Heavy Water Droplet in his hand.
He snorted. Before the muscular man in the light screen could react, a layer of black mist appeared on his arm. It was enlarged by one size. The dragon scales on his arm looked even more ferocious under the looming black mist.
His arm turned blurred as he groaned, launching countless punch shadows at the light shield.
“Bang“, the white light curtain seemed to burst apart instantly.
Seeing this, the muscular man’s complexion changed drastically. His body flashed with a green glow as he was about to escape from the place.
Liu Ming saw this, and he opened five fingers. Several white lights blasted out at the muscular man.
A few “pch.”
Yin Yang Strong Demon’s back immediately lit up with a strange green light, but it was instantly penetrated by white light, revealing five finger-thick bloody holes; blood immediately gurgled out.
The body of the muscular man staggered for a moment, then he blasted out in green light.
The muscular man ran too fast; Liu Ming, with a solemn face, raised his arm and pointed forward with a finger.
