Liu Ming gave an order. At the same time, he flicked his sleeve. A golden light blasted out. The golden light turned into a ten meters long golden python. It entangled the puppet warrior in a flash.
The golden armor rune soldier had already come to the puppet warrior, striking fiercely at the restrained puppet warrior’s head with a fist.
The puppet warrior couldn’t defend the blow, and it was knocked to the ground.
Seeing this situation, the young man in green robe couldn’t help being shocked. Unexpectedly, Liu Ming’s two demonic pets were so strong. Judging from the fluctuations in the spiritual power emitted, they both had the strength of the Condensation Period later stage!
Liu Ming was obviously luring the puppet warriors to a far distance just now.
“You dare to destroy my puppet, I will tear you into pieces!” The young man in green robe shouted sharply, and his body was full of green. He immediately charged forward with the other two puppets.
But Liu Ming’s figure was already blurred, and he appeared in front of the puppet who had been entangled by the Demon Flying Skull and the yellow turban soldier. The flying sword in his hand flashed, and it pierced the left chest where the golden rune mark was at.
Liu Ming had some knowledge about the structure of puppets quite well. He knew that as long as the core that supplied spiritual power was destroyed, the puppet would instantly become a dead object. Through previous observations, he had naturally found the core.
The scarlet flying sword pierced deeply into the mark on the soldier’s chest with lightning speed. The tall puppet warrior’s body suddenly flashed wildly with golden light, and there was a creaking sound from its body.
A hint of joy flashed in Liu Ming’s eyes, but then his expression changed slightly.
The internal mechanism and the flow of spiritual power of this puppet did not stop completely. The golden head still emitted golden light, but its aura was obviously weaker than before.
“It turns out that this puppet warrior actually has two cores. It’s no wonder that its action is so agile.” Liu Ming thought anxiously. He made a sword gesture, and the crimson sword was launched at the forehead of the puppet warrior..
The golden armor puppet finally stopped abruptly. The red light in its eyes vanished as it fell heavily to the ground.
From Liu Ming releasing the demonic pets to trap the enemy to destroy a golden armor puppet, it only took a few seconds!
Until the golden armor puppet fell to the ground, the young man in green robe had arrived with the other two puppets. As he looked at the dead puppet and the puppet entangled by Bone Scorpion, his body shook slightly. His face turned gloomy. He cast a gaze with murderous intent at Liu Ming again.
Liu Ming smiled lightly and waved his hand to make a gesture. The Golden Fallen Sand wrapped around the puppet suddenly collapsed. After circling around, it turned into a golden light and went back into his hand.
“You really think I can’t do anything to you without the four guardians formation?” The young man in green robe sneered.
Liu Ming was just smiling in response, but he had commanded the Demon Flying Skull and the yellow turban soldier with Divine Thought.
“Swoosh swoosh“, two whistling sounds.
Demon Flying Skull and the yellow turban soldier suddenly rushed at the two puppet warriors behind the young man in green robe.
At the same time, Liu Ming made a sword gesture. The red sword light flashed in front of him, striking at the young man in green robe.
The young man in green robe shouted. His both hands flashed with a black awn, and a pair of pitch black gloves appeared on his hands. He punched at the sword light in a great black light.
“Boom“, the scarlet flying sword was deflected; the young man in green robe was also pushed back for two steps under the huge recoil.
Just as the young man in green robe stabilized his figure and wanted to punch again, a sneer suddenly came into his ears. The young man’s vision was blurred; a black figure had slammed his chest heavily.
“Bang“, the young man in green robe’s protective aura collapsed in an instant. An intense pain came from his right chest. He was knocked into the air and flew away for a dozen meters, and he fell heavily on the ground like a torn sack.
“Arh“, the young man in green robe vomited a big mouthful of blood, and his chest had a deep punch mark. He would even feel a heart-wrenching pain when breathing.
“It’s impossible…” The young man in green robe flipped up. There was a trace of disbelief in his eyes.
In Demon Mystic Sect, he was a genius inner disciple that had attracted much attention. There was even a powerful backer behind him. He had some power in the sect. Since when did he suffer such embarrassment?
Not far away, one of his four puppet warriors, which were his strongest reliance, was destroyed. Another three puppet warriors were entangled by the opponent’s spiritual pets. They couldn’t break free from the restraint, not to mention protecting him.
The young man in green robe resisted the pain in his chest and struggled to stand up with a low groan, then a black shadow appeared in a flash in front of him; it was Liu Ming.
Seeing this, the young man in green robe finally showed a trace of fear in his eyes, but he opened his mouth abruptly. A black light blasted out without any prior warning. It was a black needle of several inches long.
Liu Ming leaned forward instead of retreating. As his head turned blurred, the black needle phantasm brushed past his head. He flicked his sleeve, and golden light spots rolled out from it. The golden light spots turned into a golden blade, and it struck forward silently.
At such a close range, the young man in green robe had no room to dodge at all. Even if he wanted to use other spiritual weapons defensively, it was too late. He could only desperately move his body to the side to avoid the vital points first.
As the golden light flashed, and the young man in green robe’s protective aura was broken; one of his arm was cut off, bursting into a blood mist.
The young man in green robe screamed horribly.
However, he was also considered to be a man with a firm mind. He gritted his teeth and suddenly retreated several ten meters away. He quickly took out a talisman and pressed it to the broken arm, stopping the bleed on his shoulder. After that, he waved his hand. A fan with more black color than white color appeared in a black light. It was the superb spiritual weapon, Soul Destruction Fan, that he bade in the auction.
Liu Ming raised his brows slightly. If he remembered correctly, this fan should have as many as thirty enchantments. Under the desperate channeling of the opponent, the power should not be underestimated.
However, the auction was over for about three months only. Since this young man had sacrificially refined this set of puppet warriors and he didn’t use the fan at the first place, he probably hadn’t completed the sacrificial refining of the Soul Destruction Fan. Thus, Liu Ming was worried by it.
While he was thinking about it, the young man in green robe had already channeled all his spiritual power into the Soul Destruction Fan with a trace of hideousness. However, he seemed to feel that it still wasn’t enough, so he spat a blood essence onto the fan again.
Soul Destruction Fan suddenly burst into black and white light, then he fanned fiercely at Liu Ming.
A purple mist surged out from the fan. It then condensed into a purple skull, and it opened its mouth, trying to swallow Liu Ming.
Liu Ming suddenly felt a breathtaking feeling filling the surrounding space. There was a vague pin-piercing pain in both his ears, and his mind was immediately shaken by a little.
Liu Ming’s heart shuddered slightly. He took out a silver small lock right away and started making gestures in the other hand.
The small silver lock flashed, causing his eyes to suddenly shine in silver light. A huge mental power gushed out like it was a physical substance, going at the purple skull.
The purple skull broke apart with a grinning grin, and it once again turned into a rolling purple mist that slowly dissipated in the air.
In the mist, a green figure just twisted, and it flashed out like a ghost. The next moment it was near the young man in green robe.
“No! I can’t lose to an unknown person like you!” The young man in green robe’s face was already pale as paper at this moment. Seeing this situation, he shouted desperately, and he waved the Soul Destruction Fan in his hand crazily. Countless black wind blades swept out one after another. He was trying to fight to the death.
Liu Ming’s eyes were cold, and his body flashed with a black gas. His body twisted in an incredible angle like a snake; he actually went through the dense wind blades.
At the next moment, the young man in green robe felt a black wind whizzing by his side, and then he felt cold at his chest. He subconsciously looked back, and he saw a man in a green robe behind him. He was raising a palm wrapped in black gas, and there was a bloody heart that was still slowly beating in his palm.
The young man in green robe saw this scene, and the expression on his face instantly solidified. His face was full of incredible expression.
With a squeeze of the palm, the heart was crushed, and a cluster of blood splashed out.
The young man in green robe opened his mouth and made a few inaudible hoarse noises in his throat, then his body fell softly to the ground. His eyes had lost its luster. The big hole in his chest was still bleeding non-stop.
Liu Ming retracted his arm expressionlessly and shook off the blood stain on his hand.
At this moment, a cloud of black gas blasted out from the head of the young man in green robe. In a flash, it was several ten meters away. It was about to escape successfully.
Liu Ming raised his brows. It wasn’t his first time seeing a Condensation Period cultivator who could still keep his soul after his death, so he wouldn’t let it escape of course. He waved, and the crimson flying sword already flew out and circled around the black gas.
A scream suddenly sounded from the black gas, then it broke apart and dissipated into black light spots.
Just when Liu Ming’s complexion was loose and ready to withdraw the flying sword, a bloody light like a hair flew out of the black light. It had already disappeared into Liu Ming’s body.
The speed was so fast that he had no time to dodge it!
Liu Ming was shocked immediately, and he immediately used mental power to check his body. He quickly found that there was a faint blood silk deep in the meridians in his body.
His heart sank. He remembered some of the strange evil cultivation techniques recorded in Taiqing Sect’s classics. Many of which were vicious spells that needed one’s blood essence.
He remembered that there was a kind of mystic arts called Septic Sword, which burned the cultivator’s blood essence into a blood sword. As long as it touched the enemy’s body by a little bit, it could immediately invade the opponent’s vitality and spirit. It would slowly devour the vitality of the affected opponent until his death. It was the evil technique that was used to perish together with the opponent when the evil cultivator was dying.
“Could this blood silk be one of this kind of spells?”
Liu Ming murmured a little in his heart, but he didn’t feel like it after thinking about it.
The evil technique like Septic Sword required a certain amount of spirit essence and spiritual power to be activated. When the wisp of soul was exterminated by the sword light, there seemed to be no signs of using spiritual power.
Then, he immediately cast a spell to get rid of this blood silk in the body, but no matter how much spiritual power he used, it had no effect at all. The blood silk seemed like it didn’t exist. It seemed to be some special mystic art of Demon Mystic Sect.
“Forget it, let’s wait until I return to the market.” Liu Ming was helpless now, so he could only stop trying.
