A few days later, when Liu Ming beheaded some Condensation Period intermediate stage magical beast apes again, he entered another hall. He found that the mist around the hall was thin as if there was nothing in this hall.
He walked a few steps to the center. As he looked closely, he found that there were some traces of fighting here. The magical beasts in this hall had obviously been cleared.
At this moment, the door on the other side was suddenly opened, and a foreign cultivator entered from the outside.
When this person saw Liu Ming standing in the middle of the hall, he was startled slightly. He then looked around, revealing the look of understanding as if he thought that the magical beasts here were slain by Liu Ming.
Liu Ming didn’t speak when he saw this; he faintly looked at each other.
This person was tall and thin. He was wearing a gray black robe with a green longbow on the back that was a little eye-catching. His cultivation was not weak which was at the Condensation Period later stage.
And this person didn’t mean to speak. The two watched each other vigilantly, but they tacitly chose a different stone door and left.
Liu Ming pushed the stone gate on the east side and entered. When he reached the central position, a gust of wind suddenly swept toward him from the empty space.
His complexion changed slightly. He quickly made a gesture to stabilize his figure while releasing mental power to explore the surroundings.
As a result, after scanning, he found that an aura not weaker than the Crystallization Period was wandering around. For a while, he couldn’t accurately determine its location. He was shocked immediately.
At this moment, a burst of whistling sound came from above Liu Ming. Under a strong wind, a huge claw suddenly fell from the sky, wanting to clutch Liu Ming’s body.
Liu Ming snorted coldly. He turned into a phantasm and vanished, then he appeared a hundred meters away the next moment.
Only then did he see the true appearance of the magical beast here, which was actually a huge gray bird of about eighty meters in size.
This bird was covered with gray feathers, and the wings part was showing a circle of faint purple spirit patterns. Its whole body was covered by a layer of pale white light, and its eyes were full of brightness.
The giant bird flapped its wings quickly. After circling in the air, it once again turned into a white light and blasted toward Liu Ming again; a gust of wind was already oncoming.
Liu Ming felt the spiritual pressure suddenly rise in the surrounding air. His thought turned quickly; he flicked his sleeve and cast out a black shield which turned into thirty meters in front of Liu Ming.
After forming a gesture, the shield shone in black light. A burst of black mist rolled out. Amidst the mist, there were nine skulls looming in it. They let out a spooky strange laughter, and they spurted a cluster of black gas toward the white light.
After the nine clusters of black gas condensed slightly in the void, they merged together, turning into a thick black light of tens of meters and colliding with the white light transformed by the giant bird.
A muffled sound “poof“!
The white light plunged into the deep black aura, but it did not penetrate through it. Instead, it started to struggle as it got trapped.
The next moment, the white light was looming in the black gas, making the black gas tumbling. It was accompanied by the sound of “ci ci“.
“Boom“, a loud noise!
The billowing black gas suddenly burst into the air. A clear cry came out from it at the same moment.
When the black mist gradually faded, a giant bird, with uneven feathers and black spots, flapped its wings while staring aggressively at Liu Ming.
Obviously, his previous attack made him suffer a lot, but he also completely angered the giant bird.
Liu Ming raised his brow, and he immediately formed gestures with both hands, secretly channeling Tiger Dragon Hell Prison.
After the giant bird screamed, it spat clouds of white flames one after another.
At the same time, it flapped its wings quickly to stir up waves of hurricanes. The white flames turned into spiral shapes in the air, then they were launched at Liu Ming from all directions.
Liu Ming groaned; two black dragons were condensed out of his body. Along with the dragon roar, the black dragons launched mist at the white flames.
Popping sounds could be heard one after another in the air.
Clusters of black and white flames burst apart in the air. The overwhelming fire waves splashed around, making the entire hall shine bright.
The giant bird didn’t seem to give up. Its giant wings trembled fiercely, and the purple feathers shot out from it. They turned into countless purple flying arrow phantasms in the air.
Liu Ming flicked his sleeve. A golden light flashed out immediately, turning into a golden sand curtain. It contained the overwhelming purple feathers and continued to push in the direction of the giant bird.
Suddenly, there was a burst of ear-piercing and explosive sounds like a metal collision!
The purple flying arrows burst apart among the golden light. The golden sand curtain only paused slightly before continuing to fly toward the giant bird.
The gray giant bird seemed to perceive a hint of danger, and it immediately waved its wings to avoid the sand curtain.
At this moment, in the air on the top of the giant bird’s head, a red sword light of about eighty meters flashed out. It instantly turned into a sky full of sword shadows blocking the giant bird’s path.
When the giant bird was startled, its figure was slow slightly.
In this moment of time, the golden sand mist has turned into a giant net. After a blur, the bird was caught in it.
The giant bird fanned its wings in anger, but it couldn’t get rid of it for too long.
At this moment, Liu Ming said with cold eyes.
The crimson sword shadows all over the sky suddenly condensed into a huge sword light. It turned and transformed into a crimson full moon that slowly descended.
Even though the giant bird desperately raised its head to shoot out white flames, its head was still chopped down.
Its headless body didn’t burst into black energy directly; it kept waving its wings, still wanting to make the final resistance.
At this moment, Liu Ming’s figure flashed down, and he appeared beside the giant bird. As he moved his arm, countless black punch shadows were launched, hitting on the headless body like a giant black wave.
After a burst of explosion, the giant bird’s body dissipated into a silver bead. Liu Ming waved and got this bead in his hand.
Liu Ming kept the Golden Fallen Sand and the crimson flying sword away. Looking at the silver bead in his hand, he couldn’t help thinking.
In the past half month, he had gathered hundreds of beads of different colors in the Sumeru Ring by killing the magical beasts in these halls.
The magical beasts encountered during the period ranged from the Spirit Apostle Stage to the early stage of the Crystallization Period. However, the magical beast of the Crystallization Period early stage, like this giant bird, only dropped a silver bead. This made Liu Ming couldn’t help but wonder.
Could it be that in the Green Sky Illusory Palace, there are magical beasts of a higher level?
Although these magical beasts were at the early stage of the Crystallization Period, due to their limited intelligence, for those Condensation Period cultivators who were able to pass the five colors stairs, it was still possible to defeat them as long as they spent more efforts; At the worst, they could still retreat safely.
But if it was a magical beast above the intermediate stage of the Crystallization Period, there were very few that had the ability to kill the magical beast under the disparity in strength.
Thinking of this, Liu Ming shook his head, chose a certain direction, and then he walked into a stone door.
However, as time passed by, the number of magical beasts in the halls gradually decreased, and the number of entering the empty halls began to increase frequently.
On this day, in a hall of Green Sky Illusory Palace that was more than a hundred meters in size.
With a flash of silver light, a silver mini Bone Scorpion jumped onto Liu Ming’s shoulder.
On the ground, the corpse of a magical beast with a bull head and lion body was collapsing, and it finally turned into a dark green bead.
“Good job!” Liu Ming stroked Bone Scorpion on his shoulders, grabbed the bead with one hand, and took the bead into his hand.
At this moment, a stone door on the side of the hall slowly opened with a sound.
With Liu Ming’s quick wit, he quickly patted the soul-recovering bag on his waist, and Bone Scorpion suddenly turned back into black gas and returned.
At this time, there was a sound of footsteps. It was the woman in purple clothes from the Ouyang Family who came in.
“Oh, it turned out to be Taiqing Sect’s Mr. Liu.” As soon as the woman entered the lobby, she saw Liu Ming and revealed a half-smile.
“You know me??” Liu Ming’s heart shuddered, but he pretended to be calm.
Regarding the Ouyang Family where the woman belonged, after the auction, he also asked Shopkeeper Ye some basic information.
It was a pity that Shopkeeper Ye only knew that the Ouyang Family was very powerful in the Middle Sky Continent, almost second only to the existence of the four ancient sects, but he didn’t know much other than that.
In Liu Ming’s opinion, apart from the last time he killed Yin Yang Strong Demon, he was very careful during the six months at the Changyang Market. He almost never showed his true face to the others. Even when he went out to buy materials, sell medicinal materials, etc, he always disguised himself. He probably didn’t attract the attention of the others.
When he entered the Green Sky Illusory Palace that day, he did not wear Taiqing Sect’s costume, but the woman recognized him at a glance and was able to call out his name. This of course surprised him.
“Although Brother Liu and I have just met for the first time, I have long heard of your name.” After turning her eyes, the woman in purple clothes flattered Liu Ming, but she did not tell him her name.
“I really don’t deserve such praise.” Liu Ming simultaneously narrowed his eyes and looked at the woman in purple clothes in front of him, but he said faintly.
“Envoy Liu, staring at me like this, is there something wrong with my face?” The woman in purple clothes said with a smile.
“Oh, forgive my impolite action. I just didn’t expect to meet fairy so coincidentally.” Liu Ming cupped his fist slightly and asked casually with his eyes closed.
“Oh, listening to Brother Liu’s tone, you seem to recognize my origin too.” The woman in purple clothes said with a chuckle.
“Ouyang Family is so famous, how can I not know it. However, the opening time of the Green Sky Illusory Palace is limited. I still have to collect more Green Sky Pearl, so I’ll go now.” Ater Liu Ming smiled politely, he cupped his fist to bid farewell.
After that, before the woman could speak, he flashed to the side of the hall, flicked his sleeve, opened the stone door, and disappeared from the sight of the woman in purple clothes the next moment.
The woman in purple clothes smiled faintly, then she floated toward the stone door on the other side.
