Liu Ming recalled the scarlet sword with one hand, spat out a few gray spells, and quickly made gestures with both hands. After a surge of black gas, his body instantly became hazy.
The next moment, a strange scene appeared!
After Liu Ming’s strange body twisted, he unexpectedly flashed out of the dense sword shadows as if he did not suffer any damage.
“What kind of technique is this?”
Sha Tongtian was of course surprised by this. As he couldn’t figure out what was going on, he made sword gestures with both hands again. The dense green sword shadows faded, then it turned into a green rainbow that blasted at Liu Ming.
However, Liu Ming stomped the ground with 1 foot, and a blurry black light shone on his body surface. He became a faint phantasm that rushed at Sha Tongtian.
Sha Tongtian sneered, and he took out a black sword. 8 white sword light instantly rolled toward Liu Ming.
The phantasm created by Liu Ming suddenly stretched like a rubber band. After twisting strangely a few times, it fluttered out of the threatening sword lights.
Sha Tongtian was shocked. When he wanted to activate the small black sword in his hand, he lost his clear sight. Liu Ming, who was 80 meters away, appeared right in front of him with a blur.
Sha Tongtian was shocked. He hurriedly flicked his shoulders and flew back for a hundred meters more, then he turned around and returned to the arena.
However, the black light on Liu Ming’s body scattered, and he just stood on the spot with a spurious smile.
As Sha Tongtian saw this scene, his heart sank to the bottom, and his face turned gloomy. After calling back the flying sword, he said coldly,
“I admit defeat.”
Then, he took the initiative to jump down from the arena.
After seeing Liu Ming’s even more bizarre bodily technique, Sha Tongtian knew that there was no chance of winning at all. So, he admitted defeat right away.
Such an expected result, the surrounding disciples didn’t know how to react for a while. When hearing Sha Tongtian’s 3 words, they burst into an uproar.
At the same time, the 2 Crystallization Period disciples who came with Sha Tongtian looked as usual on the surface, but after looking at each other, they saw a hint of surprise in the other’s eyes.
Not only did Liu Ming’s Sword Controlling Technique was not inferior to Sha Tongtian’s technique, but his strange bodily technique was also even more unheard of. Even the 2 disciples who already had a Crystallization Period cultivation could not completely see through it, so they were surprised in their minds.
Liang Zhange after nodding above the arena, he announced Liu Ming’s victory.
Sha Tongtian and the 2 two companions immediately rose into the air without saying a word and left the arena together.
Although Liu Ming’s expression on his face did not change at all, he thought to himself that the Three Shadowy Mirages Technique was really useful. I’m just at the 1st level, and it is already so mysterious. If I can get to the 2nd level and use the *** afterimage, how miraculous would it be?
He thought so. After bowing to Liang Zhange, he went away in the same way.
The news that the top 1 of the major competition, Liu Ming, easily defeated the inner disciple Sha Tongtian spread throughout the sect in a short time. It naturally caused a sensation.
However, Liu Ming didn’t care about these things at all. After returning to the cave house, he entered the secret room again to continue practicing in a retreat.
As time passed slowly, Liu Ming had been in the outer courtyard for several years.
During this period, apart from occasionally going to the market, he almost never left the cave house; he never appeared in front of other outer disciples; he no longer participated in the minor competition in the courtyard.
In addition to refining pills and taking medicine to practice mystic arts every day, he also insists on entering illusion every day to practice.
By proficiently using the newly learned Three Shadowy Mirages Technique, the demonized Liu Ming had a higher win rate against the Real Pellet State Siren King.
As time passed, Liu Ming gradually faded out of the eyes of many people in the Taiqing Sect, leaving only some rumors related to it.
After all, in Taiqing Sect’s ancient sects that had been passed down for tens of thousands of years, everyone’s attention was easily shifted.
5 years later.
In the Thousands Spirit Mountain Range that was shrouded in clouds and mists. Hundreds of tall and steep mountain peaks still stood silently as usual.
In the mid-air, from time to time, there were strange lights rising from various peaks and going into other peaks, leaving a faint trace in the mid-air.
Somewhere behind the Piaomiao Peak, in a clear stream with fish swimming at the bottom, there was an exquisite pavilion built on the hillside.
Outside the pavilion at this moment, it seemed to be covered with a blue water wave-like light curtain enchantment.
In the pavilion, a thick purple light was constantly expanding and contracting rhythmically. When it touched the surrounding enchantment, it would cause blue ripples.
Before long, with the clear sound of the valley, a giant purple light beam suddenly rose up from the pavilion into the blue light curtain, and it didn’t stop and went above the sky. The light beam was purple like the hazy clouds on the sky.
At the same time, in the mid-air around the light beam, huge cloud vortexes swept around the purple beam of light. A dozen or so purple light balls could be vaguely seen. They were arranged in a certain trajectory and released starlike crystal light.
“Spiritual power crystallized!”
“This means someone has advanced to the Crystallization Period.”
When the disciples of Piaomiao Peak on the mountain saw to this scene, they all lost their voices; some of them even looked envy.
Such a vast celestial phenomenon also attracted the attention of people from other nearby mountains. Some inner disciples walked out of the cultivation ground one after another, flew to the surrounding peaks of the Piaomiao Peak and discussion on the phenomenon.
On a wide platform adjacent to the top of the towering mountain of the Piaomiao Peak, escape lights landed here from time to time.
On the platform at this time, more than a dozen people wearing inner disciple costumes had gathered here.
If Liu Ming was here, he would definitely recognize Hou Kun, Zhao Anyin and others who entered the inner door after the previous major competition. At this time, they looked at the celestial phenomenon appearing on Piaomiao Peak with a solemn expression.
Among the crowd was a young man with a long face, standing out like a leader among them. Judging from the astonishing sword qi fluctuations, the person’s spiritual power had reached the Crystallization Period; it was actually Sha Tongtian.
“Which disciple of Piaomiao Peak has advanced to the Crystallization Period? He actually causes such an amazing phenomenon, but the true spirit power only condenses into 18 spiritual power crystals. It seems that the aptitude is very ordinary. This is really strange!” The young man with a white hair said so with flickering eyes.
“In the past few years, Senior Fellow Apprentice Sha seems to be quite diligent in coming in and out of the Piaomiao Peak, and you often exchange training experience with Senior Sister Apprentice Jia Lan, you should have some clues right?” Zhao Anyin glanced at Sha Tongtian and said faintly.
Since this woman entered the inner door, she cultivated some kind of technique that made the scar on her face disappear completely. Now, she looked a little bit more charming.
Sha Tongtian looked in the direction of Piaomiao Peak without speaking.
“Could it be that… Senior Sister Apprentice Jia Lan has advanced to the Crystallization ?” Another inner disciple with thick eyebrows and big eyes nearby heard the words, and he couldn’t help but say in surprise.
“Senior Sister Apprentice Jia Lan has just joined the inner door not for long, and she has practiced so quickly to the level of Crystallization Period.” Hou Kun had obviously heard of Jia Lan’s name, and he said in surprise.
“Jia Lan has the sky succubus physique. She has extraordinary talent in cultivating the way of illusion. She killed the cultivator of the Crystallization Period during the Condensation Period later stage. 2 years ago, she even had a rare encounter which made her cultivation soar quickly and reach the Condensation Period later stage-perfect stage. This is why she can reach the Crystallization Period so quickly.” Sha Tongtian finally spoke, but he never looked away from the the direction of the Piaomiao Peak.
“Sky succubus physique, isn’t it the best spiritual body to practice illusion?” Hou Kun’s eyes flickered upon hearing the words.
He himself had the rare five element spiritual body that could be seen once in a century, so he was naturally interested in the same rare spiritual body.
Sha Tongtian didn’t want to say any more, looking in the direction of the Piaomiao Peak. A trace of infatuation flashed in his eyes.
A few years ago, he accidentally saw Jia Lan at a ceremony in the inner door. After seeing Jia Lan, he was shocked by the peerless appearance and strength of this junior sister. Since then, he had entered and exited the Piaomiao Peak through various excuses. However, Jia Lan had always been indifferent to him which made him feel melancholy.
On the hidden big tree on another steep mountain, Jin Tianci held a silver gourd in his hand and poured fine wine into his mouth. From time to time, he looked thoughtfully at the celestial phenomena appearing on the Piaomiao Peak.
A few days later, the news that the Piaomiao Peak’s inner disciple Jia Lan successfully advanced to the Crystallization Period spread slowly in the Taiqing Sect. It immediately attracted the attention of many interested people.
After all, Jia Lan’s stunning appearance had always been the hot topic of many male disciples of both outer and inner door.
However, after this woman achieved the Crystallization Period, she immediately stayed behind closed doors for some reason. After a period of time, people had gradually forgotten the news.
6 months later.
Liu Ming was sitting cross-legged in the secret room of the cave house, playing with a dark jade pendant in his hand. A thoughtful look appeared on his face.
The jade pendant was dark in texture. Its material was neither wood nor gold, and its style was also very peculiar. A star pattern was inscribed on the front, but 2 seal scripts were engraved on the back.
This thing was also one of the things Liu Ming found from his storage talisman after beheading Yin Yang Strong Demon.
He scanned it with Divine Thought and didn’t find anything special about it. He thought it was just an ordinary magical weapon, so he placed it in the corner of the Sumeru Ring without paying too much attention to it.
However, a few days ago, when Liu Ming went to the Scriptures Pavilion to look up the classics, he accidentally saw the record of this object and was shocked.
When will it be Liu Ming’s turn to advance into the Crystallization Period? Can he cause the astonishing scene like Jia Lan when advancing?
