The rumble stopped suddenly!
Under the control of the honest-looking young man, the huge bronze puppet also stopped abruptly, and it stopped the light ball attack on its chest. He looked at Liu Ming and the Blood Emperor with some doubts too.
For a time, the 4 of them faced each other from afar, and for a time they stood in a stalemate.
Liu Ming looked at the 3 people in front, and his thoughts processed quickly.
The situation at the moment was extremely complicated. Obviously, Blood Emperor and Black Phoenix Fairy were both coming for him, but based on Blood Emperor’s tone, they obviously weren’t a group. However, as they were both evil cultivators, the possibility of them joining forces was still not small.
The honest-looking young man dressed as a farmer must have capable strength to be able to chase Black Phoenix Fairy all the way here. Liu Ming didn’t know whether he was an enemy or friend.
Just when the eyes of several people were flickering, Blood Emperor suddenly “snorted”. His body burst into bloody light before dashing away in bloody light.
Seeing this, Black Phoenix Fairy rolled her eyes. After a chuckle, she also turned into a black light that flew in the other direction, instantly turning into a black spot and disappearing on the plain.
Seeing this, the young man on the bronze puppet changed his expression. After looking at the leaving bloody light and the nearby Liu Ming, he finally did not pursue with the bronze puppet. After touching his head, he spoke to Liu Ming,
“These 2 guys finally left. If so, you and I can also introduce each other. I’m from Peng Yue from the Nature Work Sect. Sir can fight with Blood Emperor without dying, you must not be an ordinary person. May I know what’s your name?”
“It turns out to be a friend of the Nature Work Sect, I’m Liu Ming from the Taiqing Sect.” Liu Ming’s expression moved slightly when he heard the words, and he replied.
Hearing that this person was a disciple of the Nature Work Sect, he also secretly breathed a sigh of relief.
Among the 4 ancient sects, the Taiqing Sect had a pretty good relationship with the Nature Work Sect. The 4 guardian puppets he snatched from Yin Yang Strong Demon before were also made by a master of the Nature Work Sect.
In this case, this huge bronze man must be some kind of giant puppet of the Nature Work Sect.
“So you are from the Taiqing Sect, nice to meet you. Not long ago, I happened to run into Black Phoenix Fairy on the way. This woman once killed several inner disciples of my sect. Since I encountered her, I naturally won’t let her go. When I pursued her until here, I happen to see Mr. Liu fighting with Blood Emperor too. This is really a coincidence.” Peng Yue said with a laugh, then he jumped down from the top of the huge bronze puppet and launched a symbol at it.
After the huge bronze puppet released a yellow halo all over its body, then it returned into a fist-sized bead in the crack sound of mechanism. He then kept it inside his sleeve.
“Nature Work Sect’s puppet is truly well-deserved its reputation. Mr. Peng is able to force Black Phoenix Fairy to retreat with such a puppet, it can be seen that its strength is amazing.” Liu Ming said with a slight smile, then he also absorbed the bone shield back into his mouth.
“Mr. Liu is really good at joking. Blood Emperor’s cultivation is above the Black Phoenix Fairy, but you can actually not lose the advantage to fight him. This can show your extraordinary strength.” Peng Yue shook his head hearing that, and he said politely back to Liu Ming.
Liu Ming was naturally very humble.
In this way, the 2 talked with each other for a while. They got along with each other well.
After a few minutes, Peng Yue glanced at the dried cultivator corpses not far away, and he changed the discussion.
“By the way, where is Mr. Liu going?”
“I’m going to Pegasus Grassland to do something.” Liu Ming replied without hesitation after hearing this.
“Oh? Such a coincidence. I am also going to visit this place. I heard that Pegasus Grassland is rich in a special kind of spirit horse. It seems really magical. But I still have some other matters to deal with first, otherwise I can go with Mr. Liu.” Peng Yue was surprised when he heard the words.
“Hehe, since Mr. Peng will still go to Pegasus Grassland, you and I may still meet again.” Liu Ming smiled lightly.
After the 2 had a few simple conversations, Peng Yue took the lead to leave in a yellow escape light.
Liu Ming stared at the yellow light disappearing at the end of the horizon, then he immediately lowered his head and thought for a while. He made a gesture, and black gas rolled out; a burst of bone crackling sound came from his body at the same time.
After a while, Liu Ming looked like the middle-aged cultivator with a sallow face. After changing into a set of green robe, Liu Ming nodded in satisfaction.
Then he flew toward the direction of the Pegasus Grassland in a black cloud.
At the same time, in a secret room of a branch of the Big Dipper Pavilion thousands of miles away, a buzzing sound suddenly sounded, breaking the original silence in the house.
In the center of the secret room, a middle-aged man wearing a jade crown with his eyes closed widened his eyes abruptly. He looked at a small magic circle the size of 10 meters. A white light was flashing in it, and there was an extra jade slip in it.
The middle-aged man took the jade slip into his hand with one hand, and he put it on his forehead.
“Even Blood Emperor couldn’t deal with Liu Ming. The 2 were actually equally strong…” The middle-aged man took down the jade slip and muttered to himself.
After thinking about it for a while, the middle-aged man stood up immediately, pushed the door and walked out. Soon, he came to a bright quiet room.
“Elder Yu.” The middle-aged man bowed to a white-haired old man who was half-lying on a recliner in the quiet room.
“You also got the news?” The white-haired old man glanced at the middle-aged man and said faintly.
“Yes, I never expected that the strength of this man is so strong; even Blood Emperor can’t deal with him.” The middle-aged man nodded slightly, and he sighed lightly.
“The techniques that Blood Emperor cultivates are special, so although he is only at the Condensation Period later stage, his actual strength is no less than that of the Crystallization Period later stage cultivator. Since this man can compete with him, he is really worth paying attention to. Alright, record the information of this man into the Mystery Classic. In addition, inform the other branches’ members to pay more attention to this man. If anyone inquires about his whereabouts in the future, they must first get the permission of the Main Pavilion before telling the information.” The white-haired old man stood up and said with a solemn expression.
“Yes!” The middle-aged man replied respectfully.
Naturally, Liu Ming of course didn’t know that his information had already attracted the attention of the Big Dipper Pavilion. Even as the clients of Big Dipper Pavilion, other high-level executives of major sects, gradually learned of his name.
2 months later, Liu Ming made a detour and teleported all the way. Finally, he came to Pegasus Grassland in the Middle Sky Continent.
Pegasus Grassland was located in the middle edge of the Middle Sky Continent. It was famous for producing a special kind of spiritual horse that could produce spiritual clouds.
The entire grassland was also rich in spirit. It was also rich in several special spiritual grasses. There were several small famous ancient relics in the depths of the grassland.
Amano Ancient City was one of them, so it had attracted many foreign cultivators to hunt for treasures here.
Over time, the originally seemingly barren grassland gradually prospered.
Nowaday, Pegasus Grassland was mainly controlled by 2 forces, 1 was the Golden Ge Sect of the human race with ten thousand years of history and the other was the Longevity Pond which was 1 of the few Beastkin Clan forces in the Middle Sky Continent.
The 2 forces were on both sides of the grassland, just sandwiching Pegasus Grassland. Therefore, the disciples of Golden Ge Sect and Longevity Pond often appeared on the grassland. As for the cultivators who wanted to enter the grassland, they must pay a large sum of spirit stone as an entrance fee.
In order to prevent the spirit horses in the grasslands from being raided by high rank cultivators, the 2 major forces jointly set a rule that the entire grassland did not allow cultivator beyond the Crystallization Period to enter the grassland. Therefore, the teleportation array that reached the grassland was specially set. The cultivators who were the Crystallization Period couldn’t be teleported.
If a cultivator, above the Crystallization Period, wanted to fly into the grassland, the closest teleportation location was thousands of miles away. Besides, there were many dangerous areas along the way.
Even if the cultivator was really strong, once they were spotted by the Golden Ge Sect and the Longevity Pond, they would definitely be hunted down without mercy.
Liu Ming naturally knew about these information before he set off.
In a small market on the edge of Pegasus Grassland, in a stone house, after a dazzling light shined, 5 cultivators appeared in the teleportation circle on the ground.
Liu Ming was also among them. He still used the image of a middle-aged man with a sallow face.
He looked around and saw a middle-aged man in yellow silk shirt standing lazily on the side in the stone house.
“Welcome to the Pegasus Grassland, I’m Wang Jin of the Golden Ge Sect.” The middle-aged man saw 6 more people teleporting over, and he said lightly. There was an inch-sized Golden Ge pattern on his sleeve.
“So you are from the Golden Ge Sect.” Someone immediately said with a smile.
“You don’t need to say anything. The old rule is that everyone is allowed to enter Pegasus Grassland by paying 30,000 spirit stones.” The middle-aged man glanced across, then he waved his hand and said without thinking.
“What, your Golden Ge Sect is too greedy. Before entering the Pegasus Grassland, we have to pay 30,000 spirit stones.” A red-haired young man shouted immediately when he heard this.
“Pegasus Grassland is the sphere of influence of our sect. If you don’t want to pay the spirit stones, you can teleport back immediately. However, you have to pay a return fee.” The yellow silk man rolled his eyes and said in a mocking tone.
The red-haired young man was dumbstruck by the words, and he stopped talking.
“Mister, if I remember correctly, when I came to Pegasus Grassland a few years ago, the fee was still 20,000 spirit stones. Why is it now 30,000?” Among the few people, a steady-looking muscular man asked in a deep voice.
“That’s a misfortune for you. It is the new rule set by our sect. It has just increased a few months ago. Again, whoever doesn’t want to pay, you can teleport away now. Stop talking nonsense here.” The middle-aged man was somewhat impatient.
Liu Ming’s eyes flashed when he heard the words.
This should be a “safe” zone for Liu Ming to get rid of the evil cultivators, but what danger is waiting for him in the Pegasus Grassland?
