A spider-web-like crack appeared on the 5 colors light wall of the innermost layer of the talisman array, and it burst apart.
Liu Ming retracted his fist blankly.
Hou Kun’s expression changed. These talisman arrays were connected to his mind. He of course knew what was going on inside. He couldn’t help stop making gestures for a while.
The next moment, rumbling roars sounded one after another!
After a roll of black energy, a figure swept across from the serial talisman arrays. The space where it passed made a series of low muffled noises, and faint ripples appeared in the air.
“Bang bang bang bang“, 4 talisman arrays burst one after another!
The unstoppable black shadow flickered again, then Liu Ming had already rushed out of the talisman arrays and reached the front of Hou Kun.
When the black gas condensed into the black dragon, it transformed into a giant black claw and clawed ferociously.
The brown defensive array that Hou Kun hurriedly cast shook violently like waves under the giant black claw attack, then it shattered like paper.
The giant claw, that was still able to attack, flashed and exterminated the dozen of fire snakes in front of Hou Kun with a strong wind.
Hou Kun’s fire snake mystic arts was forcibly interrupted. Under the spiritual power backlash, his face flushed red. He spouted a mouthful of blood before falling the ground.
The black giant claw abruptly stopped less than half a foot above Hou Kun’s head.
Liu Ming frowned and waved with one hand; the giant claw turned into a black gas and dissipated.
“Winner, Piaohong Courtyard, Liu Ming.”
The withered old man was relieved when he saw the scene before him and announced loudly.
The fight just now was just a few seconds. If Liu Ming couldn’t stop it, he was really not sure that he would be able to save Hou Kun.
Under the arena, all the disciples looked at Liu Ming with a completely different gaze.
If Liu Ming won 1 or 2 matches in the top 10 rankings, he could still be said to be lucky. However, he had not lost until now which fully demonstrated his strength.
In these few battles, he almost relied on his powerful physical body and ghostly physical movements to crush his opponents. The victory was swift and simple.
Some disciples from the other courtyards who didn’t know Liu Ming’s rumors couldn’t help but talk about him and ask others about Liu Ming.
Jiang Zhong on the jade platform couldn’t help but let out a sigh. He was twisting his beard with a smile.
As for the 3 Real Pellet State powerhouses of the Emerald Cloud Peak, the man surnamed Lu just took a faint look, but Hao Yue showed a thoughtful look, and the beautiful woman looked at Liu Ming with eyes full of curiosity.
Real Pellet State powerhouses of the other mountain peaks also regained their interests in Liu Ming again after this match.
When Liu Ming stepped down from the arena and sat cross-legged to restore spiritual power, the other matches also came to an end.
The thin young man with a bronze sword on his back was fighting Wu Ming this round. He first used the bronze sword to block Wu Ming’s big seal with sword controlling technique, then he cast the flying sword’s true spirit and defeated Wu Ming easily.
Zhao Anyin and Jin Tianci also won.
In the 5th round, Liu Ming finally encountered the huge young man with a bronze sword.
The young man with a bronze sword of the Hongjun Courtyard, except losing to Jin Tianci, he basically won the other 3 matches at the beginning with his extraordinary Sword Controlling Technique and flying sword’s true spirit.
“Brother Jiang, this man is quite extraordinary in his Sword Controlling Technique, and he has flying sword’s true spirit in his hands. Your disciple surnamed Liu will be a little danger this time.” The short and fat man turned to Jiang Zhong with a smile.
Just now, Hou Kun was defeated by Liu Ming in his courtyard, so he was naturally displeased by it. Now that Liu Ming had encountered a powerful opponent, he couldn’t help but gloat.
“The fight in the arena is changing every second, how can a flying sword’s true spirit decide the result?” Jiang Zhong replied faintly, his expression unchanged.
“Hehe, let’s wait and see.” The short and fat man said with a sneer.
On the side of the arena, the young man with a bronze sword stood still in place. He made a sword gesture, and the huge bronze sword rose into the sky and slashed at the air ahead.
With a whistling sound, a yellow sword shadow of several feet long emerged from the top of Liu Ming’s head out of thin air and slashed down aggressively.
Liu Ming seemed to be prepared for a long time. A golden light flashed in his sleeves, and the Golden Fallen Sand rolled out. It flickered and condensed into a giant golden fist. The next moment, it slammed on the giant sword shadow.
There was a loud rumbling noise!
The giant sword shadow collapsed, and the giant golden fist also cracked and scattered into a sky full of golden sky.
The young man with a bronze sword looked gloomy. He launched a sword symbol, then the huge bronze sword turned blurred. It instantly flashed out with 8 yellow sword shadows, slashing at Liu Ming from all directions.
Liu Ming’s heart moved. He changed his gestures, and the Golden Fallen Sand split into 8 golden lights to defend the attack.
Thunderous crackling sounds sounded one after another around Liu Ming, but no matter how fierce the sword light was and how it changed direction, it could not break through the golden lights.
The young man with a bronze sword finally became solemn. He didn’t expect Liu Ming to have such a powerful spiritual weapon besides his physical power.
After he snorted coldly and waved with one hand, the 8 sword lights merged back into one, then it flew back in the giant sword form.
Liu Ming’s expression turned cold and pointed his fingers.
The Golden Fallen Sand turned into a rolling golden light that surged forward.
The young man with a bronze sword waved one hand, and a yellow sword light was launched from his forehead. The sword qi instantly filled the surrounding. It was the flying sword’s true spirit.
As soon as the small yellow sword appeared, it immediately emitted an astonishing light. With just a blur, it struck at the oncoming golden light in layers of sword shadows.
“Bang bang bang.“
Under the overwhelming sword qi, the golden light was crushed and turned back into golden light spots.
“What a sharp sword light, this is the flying sword’s true spirit!”
Liu Ming’s eyes flashed. With a wave of his hand, he retrieved the Golden Fallen Sand.
The flying sword’s true spirit swirled in the air under the channeling of the young man with a bronze sword. The sword qi was soaring, showing an unstoppable momentum.
Liu Ming’s heart shuddered. Facing the flying sword’s true spirit which had become the prototype of magic weapon, he did not dare to be careless. As he waved his sleeves, 4 yellow round beads flashed and fell on the ground in front. After a crack sound, the beads turned into 4 golden puppet warriors.
At the same time, a burst of black gas rushed out of his body. After a gleam of light flashed at his forehead, a huge mental power rolled out, forming an invisible vortex on the top of his head. With a move of his mind, the immense spiritual power of mind imitation insect was also instantly invoked, surging into the air as well.
The vortex above Liu Ming swelled up suddenly. It became doubled in size, and it began to emit traces of white light.
As Liu Ming groaned, the mental power vortex split into 4, turning into four pale white lights and going into the forehead of the 4 puppet warriors.
With his current mental power that had surpassed the ordinary cultivator of the early stage of the Crystallization Period, plus the mental power copied by the mind imitation insect, even if it was divided into 4, it was still more powerful than the ordinary Condensation Period later stage cultivator.
The internal cores of these 4 puppet warriors were running quickly under this powerful mental power. 4 golden light beams rushed out from the 4 puppets; Azure Dragon, White Tiger, Vermilion Bird, and Xuanwu (Black Tortoise) appeared faintly inside. After flickering, they turned into a golden light curtain.
This was the true magical power of the 4 guardians puppet warriors. The auction house probably didn’t know they had such magical power previously.
If Liu Ming didn’t accidentally channel his mental power into the cores of the 4 puppet warriors at the same time, he probably couldn’t discover this.
Seeing this, the young man with a bronze sword looked fierce as he said ‘slash’ at Liu Ming.
The small yellow sword that was originally swirling in the air disappeared.
The next moment, after a shocking wave, a 300 meters long yellow sword shadow appeared above the golden light curtain and struck down.
The whole arena shook.
After the golden light curtain was slashed by the Sky Sword Shadow, it sank with a loud noise. It just became tight, but it didn’t collapse.
The face of the young man with a bronze sword changed. He himself knew clearly how powerful this flying sword’s true spirit was. It unexpectedly couldn’t break this light curtain.
At this moment, under the golden light curtain, black gas rolled out from Liu Ming’s and once again condensed the 2 dragons and 2 tigers.
The next moment, amidst the roar of dragons and tigers, a black fist wind with the 2 dragons and 2 tigers soared up and struck heavily on the sword shadow.
The entire sky seemed to have a clear thunderbolt!
Under the stack of Liu Ming’s punch and the rebounding force of the golden light curtain, the giant sword shadow was bounced up high.
“How can it be!”
Seeing this, the young man lost his composure as he blurted out.
Since he mastered this flying sword’s true spirit, he had always been invincible; there was nothing that he couldn’t slash.
However, in this major competition, Jin Tianci used a strange technique to trap flying sword’s true spirit, and now Liu Ming blocked his all out slash from the front.
This person also had a strong mind. After regaining his thought, he immediately made sword gestures. The sword shadow that bounced back trembled and struck again.
But at this moment, Liu Ming’s eyes flashed strangely.
The young man with a bronze sword suddenly felt a chill behind him. A ray of golden light flashed, and a golden palm had already penetrated his defensive aura, going for his vital part.
Does the young man with a bronze sword still have a way to fight back?
