As soon as Liu Ming entered the next hall, a flash of bloody light flashed in front of him, followed by sharp blades of black mist that came from all directions.
Seeing this situation, he raised his arm and flicked a few times in the air. Several transparent sword qi went out at the sharp blades transformed by the black mist.
After a few muffled sounds, the sharp blades in the sky exploded one after another.
At this moment, there was a loud rumbling noise in the distant air; a cloud of blood-colored mushroom rose into the air.
A figure with a pair of black wings leaped up and grabbed into the air, and a silver bead flew out of the blood cloud and fell into his hand.
The figure flew past Liu Ming.
After Liu Ming’s eyes flashed, he could see the face of the black shadow clearly. It was a young man in black robe with a delicate face in his twenties. Although there was still a hint of childishness on his face, he still looked a little bit ferocious with the pair of black wings behind him.
“My move just now was a bit too powerful, is mister alright?” The young man retrieved the wings behind his back and cupped his fist at Liu Ming, saying with a hint of apology.
“I’m fine. Looking at mister’s costume, you should be from the Bat Clan right?” Liu Ming said calmly.
“Since you know I’m from the Bat Clan, does it mean you come from the Changyang Market?” The young man in black robe was shocked slightly, then he touched his head and said with an honest face.
“I indeed have some business dealings with your clan.” Liu Ming said with a slight smile.
“It turns out that you are the friend of my Bat Clan. Since we met by chance, why not you join me to venture in this Green Sky Illusory Palace together. I heard that the difficulty will be increased after the Green Sky Illusory Palace is opened for a month.” The young man in black robe heard the words, and he immediately said with joy.
“Thank you for your kindness, but I’m used to being alone, so I won’t party with mister.” Liu Ming didn’t seem to expect the young man to offer a team invitation, but he did not hesitate to decline.
“In that case, I won’t force mister. I will go first, please take care.” The young man in black robe showed a trace of pity on his face, then he cupped his fist and vanished into a black gas.
“The concealing mystic arts of the Bat Clan is really well-deserved for its reputation.” Liu Ming muttered to himself before walking toward another stone door.
As such, Liu Ming also encountered other foreign cultivators frequently in the following month.
Some of these cultivators would come up with great enthusiasm, hoping to team up with him to kill some high level magical beasts, but Liu Ming had never considered forming a team. Therefore, he naturally declined one by one without hesitation.
Some people didn’t say a word at all; their faces were full of wary expressions. They left quickly without saying a word.
Because the Green Sky Illusory Palace would only be opened for three months, everyone was busy killing the magical beast in the palace for a while at the beginning to collect as many beads as they could. No one would take the initiative to cause troubles right now.
Three days later, Liu Ming came to a hall with a green glow.
Unlike the hall he entered earlier, there were no stone doors on the other three stone walls of this hall. But after Liu Ming entered, the stone gate at the entrance also disappeared after a flash of green light.
He frowned slightly and looked at everything around him.
Through the surrounding smoke, he found that on the green stone walls around here, faint green spirit patterns were flashing. It seemed that the hall was blessed with a special enchantment, making the surrounding air faintly mixed with a thick spiritual pressure. It made anyone in this hall feel suffocating.
Liu Ming immediately released a powerful mental power with a vigilant face, and he began to explore the surroundings.
At this moment, Liu Ming only felt his body sank. His feet seemed to be firmly bonded to the ground by an invisible force. There was also a powerful spiritual power pouring down from above his head.
Liu Ming was astounded slightly. He hurriedly used the body lightening technique. His body was a lot lighter than before. He stomped the ground instantly and retreated backward for a hundred meters.
There was a rumbling loud noise.
As soon as Liu Ming escaped, a giant palm phantasm descended from the sky and pressed heavily on the place where Liu Ming originally stood. There was a huge palm pit of ten meters deep on the ground instantly.
Liu Ming’s eyes flickered slightly. He noticed that several ten meters feet away from him, an expressionless young man landed.
The young man was about the same height as Liu Ming; he had delicate facial features and wore a white robe. His body was wrapped in a gray mist. He was actually at the Condensation Period later stage.
But what made him feel quite strange was that not only was he unable to see through the opponent completely, but his Divine Thought only felt a lingering pressure. There was no sign of life on the young man.
The young man in front of him seemed to be just a phantasm.
“I have never met sir before, can you tell me why are you assaulting me for no reason?” Liu Ming looked solemn and began to probe.
However, the young man seemed to be unheard of. His expression remained the same. His eyes were slightly opened, staring at Liu Ming with a strange look. A heavy sense of oppression suddenly came from his body.
Liu Ming’s face changed slightly at this time, and the various thoughts in his mind were spinning non-stop, quickly analyzing the situation in front of him.
He initially thought that this person was just a cultivator of the same level who entered the Green Sky Illusory Palace like him. Perhaps he had the intention of stealing by killing, only then he launched a sneak attack.
However, after his strange behavior, Liu Ming suddenly felt that the young man in front of him was not a real person, but a phantasm like the magical beast he had encountered before.
After thinking about it, he suddenly remembered two young people in a team, who invited him before, told him something.
In addition to the ordinary magical beast in the Green Sky Illusory Palace, there would also be a kind of human form phantasm. It had no intelligence with only fighting instinct. It was the human form magical beast of the outstanding person who once entered this Green Sky Illusory Palace.
These human form magical beasts could not only copy various spells and mystic arts, they could also transform the spiritual weapons that were used before. Each of them was quite tricky to deal with.
Thinking of this, Liu Ming no longer hesitated. His figure flashed, and he rushed toward the phantasm.
Seeing this, the young man phantasm raised his hand slowly, holding a green small flag in his hand, and he launched a symbol at it.
In the next moment, the small flag turned into ten meters in size. The young man waved the small flag and instantly stirred up a green gust of wind. It went at Liu Ming with an overwhelming momentum…
Liu Ming let out a cold snort. He made a gesture, and his figure turned into several afterimages, avoiding the gust.
The young man raised his hand and gently tapped toward the air, then he waved the green flag in his hand again.
Liu Ming only felt that his feet sank again, and he couldn’t move again. Before he could cast the body lightening technique, the previous gust turned around and whizzed behind him.
Liu Ming groaned, and a black dragon came out from behind and clashed against the green gust.
Suddenly, a burst of whistling sound!
The violent gust in the sky burst open, turning into countless wind blades blasting toward the opposite side.
After the black dragon swayed its body, it almost blocked most of the wind blades, but there were still some shooting at Liu Ming.
Liu Ming flicked his ten fingers, and white sword qi flew out, crushing all these wind blades with a blow.
After the black dragon roared, then returned to Liu Ming and circled around him..
The young man phantasm waved the green flag constantly. This was almost an instant gravity technique. Although it was not a high level spell, it was quite troublesome with the combination of a powerful spiritual weapon.
If the opponent was a little careless, he would instantly reveal his flaws and got seriously injured by the young man phantasm.
Liu Ming’s eyes flickered a few times. As he was about to do something, the young man threw up the small flag. It started to spin rapidly in the air.
After a burst of green light, a low groan came from it, and the green flag transformed into a lifelike little monkey.
The little monkey was about a foot high, and its body was gray. Its fist-sized head had faint green spirit patterns. Two yellow flames were burning in its eyes. Under the manipulation of the young man, it pounced at Liu Ming.
“Master, let me deal with it!”
Liu Ming frowned. When he was about to make a move, a childlike voice came into his ears; it was Demon Flying Skull who took the initiative to ask for a fight.
Liu Ming slapped his waist right away. A wisp of black mist permeated out, turning into an inch-sized skull.
After Demon Flying Skull squeaked strangely, the mist of its body began to tumble. Its eyes also burst into crimson flames before appearing in front of the small monkey. It shook its head to launch countless green hair at the small monkey.
The green light on the gray little monkey’s head suddenly shined. It waved one arm, and a green wind blade was released to cut a small piece of the long hair.
The little gray monkey didn’t stop there, but he launched several punches in a row, causing gusts of wind to sweep toward the Demon Flying Skull.
Demon Flying Skull’s eyes flashed red. It spat out clouds of green mist from its mouth. After another transformation, the green mist turned into a green light curtain, enveloping itself in it.
The gust of wind just touched the green light curtain for a moment, and it was bounced away in a flash of green light.
When the two were fighting each other, Liu Ming raised his hand to draw out a body lightening talisman and patted himself. He then rushed toward the phantasm under the attack of several green winds.
Seeing this, the young man phantasm immediately pointed a few times at Liu Ming. A green silk was ejected from his fingertips at Liu Ming.
Liu Ming just turned blur, then he dodged the green silk attack like a shadow. After another flash, he faded out in front of the young man phantasm. In the midst of dragons and tiger roar, he moved his arms. The punch wrapped in black gas was launched ruthlessly.
The young man phantasm couldn’t avoid it, so he could only cross his arms to defend his chest.
After a loud noise, the young man phantasm was knocked out several dozen meters away, but immediately surrounded by white light, he disappeared from Liu Ming’s eyes out of thin air.
