Liu Ming stood up and grabbed in the air. The meat paste of Blood Emperor flew up.
Liu Ming flicked his sleeve, and a storage talisman turned into a roll of white light to collect the meat paste.
With the technique of the Life and Death Pavilion’s deputy, let alone turned into meat paste, even if the corpse was burned into ashes, he would most likely have a way to recover the original head and determine the authenticity.
After keeping the talisman and the storage spiritual device of Blood Emperor, he turned around and looked carefully at the broken seal.
Liu Ming slammed a punch to the crack of the seal.
There was a loud noise. Countless broken stones splashed in all directions. A half-foot-sized hole was immediately collapsed on the ground. The bottom was pitch-black which seemed to be a cave.
After thinking for a while, Liu Ming jumped down while wrapping himself in black gas; he also held the Nine Skulls Shield with one hand at the same time.
The cave was not very deep. After a few seconds, Liu Ming landed lightly at the bottom.
The cave was not big, but it was 100 meters in size. The bottom was covered with layers of fine white sand, and it was filled with a faint black gas. There was also a faint smell of decay.
“Eh, this is…”
When Liu Ming looked around, he saw a faint black gas at the corner; a dry corpse was lying on the ground with a dark ring on each of his wrists.
Just as Liu Ming took a step forward, the rings on the wrists of the cry corpse seemed to flash at the same time.
At the same time, he seemed to hear a soft sound in his ears, followed by a buzz sound in the sea of consciousness, then he fainted to the ground.
The Nine Skulls Shield in his hand also dropped to the ground.
After a long time, Liu Ming woke up in a daze. When he remembered what happened, he immediately turned over in surprise.
“What’s going on? I suddenly fainted? Could it be someone attacked me from behind?” Liu Ming swallowed, and fine cold sweats came out from his forehead.
But he denied this idea immediately. If someone wanted to harm him, how could he still wake up?
Looking around, he found that the bottom of the cave was still the same. The dry corpse was still lying on the ground; the rings on his wrists were also there; even the Nine Skulls Shield, who dropped to the ground, was lying there quietly.
Liu Ming’s thoughts turned sharply, and he couldn’t think of a reason for a while. He picked up the Nine Skulls Shield and walked toward the dry corpse.
This corpse seemed to be there for a long time. Its flesh had already dried up, only showing a brown face. The appearance was already indistinguishable.
Suddenly, his brow moved faintly. Just now, on the corpse, he sensed a faint trace of true demonic aura, but it was fleeting.
“The true demonic aura came from this cave. Could it be from this dry corpse…” Liu Ming was full of doubts. After all, there was nothing suspicious in the cave except for this corpse.
Then he looked at the pair of black rings again. After looking clearly, he suddenly remembered the scene he had seen vaguely before passing out. He immediately took out a black short blade that he had looted, picked one of the rings and held it in hand.
The ring was hard in texture, but it was as light as a feather. It was an unusually cold holding in his hand. After checking with Divine Thought, he couldn’t feel any spiritual fluctuations. It didn’t seem like a spiritual weapon.
“Forget it, the fight with Blood Emperor outside has attracted a lot of people’s attention. I’ll leave for now first.”
As Liu Ming thought so, he took down the other ring and kept them in the Sumeru Ring together with the corpse.
He looked around one last time. After confirming that he hadn’t missed anything, he flew out of the cave.
Not long after, he flashed out of the palace in a black light, flying at the entrance of the ruin.
Shortly after Liu Ming left, a figure flashed at the entrance. A man in a gray robe looked at the mess in the hall, a hint of anxiety appeared in his eyes, but he didn’t leave.
After a dozen minutes, a golden light flew in and landed not far away from the man in a gray robe.
After the escape light faded, the figure of an old man in a golden robe appeared.
“Master, you are here finally!” The man in a gray robe quickly walked over when he saw someone coming.
“Sun Tu, you sent me a message saying that you found the Crystallization Period cultivator of another faction here, where is he now?” The old man in a golden robe looked around and frowned.
“That person has already left. He and another person had a fight here. They seemed to be fighting for some true demonic aura.” The man in a gray robe said dejectedly.
“True demonic aura, where? How many are there?” The old man in a golden robe grabbed the man’s shoulder and asked eagerly.
The man in the gray shirt was startled. As he was just about to say.
“Quiet.” The old man in a golden robe whispered, let go of his hand and turned around.
A black gas had already flown to the vicinity without a sound, and it landed with a flash.
“Haha, I wonder who is it? It turns out to be Elder Kai Yang of the Golden Ge Sect. Why would sir be here?” The black gas faded, revealing a muscular man in black. He had a big mouth and eyes, but his forehead had a black sharp horn, exposing the identity of the beastkin cultivator.
“Since Mr. Ge can come here, can’t I not?” The old man in a golden robe was obviously an acquaintance with the beastkin cultivator in black, but their relationship was not so harmonious.
“Hehe, since you and I have taken on the role of inspection of the Pegasus Grassland, I of course have to patrol since the demon ruins have appeared lest someone who violates the rules gets in.” The muscular man in black sneered.
Hearing the words, the old man in the golden robe gave a cold snort, but he did not answer.
“Elder Kai Yang came a moment earlier than me, did you find anything strange? Eh, the demonic qi here is so thick, was there really true demonic qi?” The muscular man in black looked around, and he exclaimed with suspicious.
The face of the old man in a golden robe changed slightly, and he glanced at the man in a gray robe beside him.
The gray-robed man got the hint and looked forward slightly.
“What are you 2 doing sneakily? Is there any unspeakable secret here?” The muscular man in black suddenly turned his head and sneered.
“What are you saying? Is it that we have to explain every of our actions?” The old man in a golden robe ridiculed back.
After speaking, the old man in a golden robe ignored the muscular man in black and stepped into the hall in front. The man in a gray robe hurriedly followed up.
The muscular man in black watched the 2 walking in, then he sneered and closed his eyes. A faint fluctuation emitted from his forehead, and it spread around.
“It is really taken away; That Black Phoenix didn’t lie to me. Haiz, I’m still 1 step late…” After a long while, the muscular man opened his eyes again and muttered to himself.
In the hall, the old man in a golden robe just stopped at the entrance for a moment, then he walked straight to the broken altar at the center. With a glance, he found a large hole on the ground and the remaining broken purple spirit patterns, indicating this was still an enchantment not long ago.
The face of the old man in a golden robe became extremely ugly in an instant. Looking at this situation, even if there were true demonic aura and other treasures in it, they had already been taken away.
“Elder Kai Yang, our effort is in vain. Someone got here before us.” The muscular man in black’s malicious voice came from behind.
The old man in a golden robe seemed to not hear it. He still unwillingly searched near the altar.
Seeing this, the muscular man in black gave a sneer, glanced at the big hole in the broken altar, and then flew away in a black light.
After a dozen minutes, the old man in a golden robe stood beside the broken altar with a gloomy face. He even searched the cave carefully, but he still found nothing. He suddenly stomped and walked to the entrance of the hall.
“Master, it hasn’t been long since the person left, maybe we can catch up with him.” The man in a gray robe said in a low voice.
“Did you see the person’s appearance clearly?” The old man in a golden robe walked in front and asked without looking back.
“No, that person is covered with a black gas, and his speed is extremely fast…” The man in a gray robe lowered his head and said shamefully.
The old man in a golden robe was furious hearing that, he stopped and reprimanded,
“Then how do you find him, can you check all the cultivators on the Pegasus Grassland?”
“But that person is a Crystallization Period cultivator, it should be easy to identify.” The man in a gray robe also stopped and said unwillingly.
“If there is a Crystallization Period cultivator entering Pegasus Grassland, our sect will definitely know about it for the first time. The person you mentioned should be the Condensation Period cultivator with the strength of the Crystallization Period. That was why you had a wrong impression. “The old man in a golden robe shook his head and said.
“How can it be possible that a Condensation Period cultivator has the strength of the Crystallization Period?” The man in a gray robe looked unbelievable.
“Among the core disciples of the 4 ancient sects, there are many such talented disciples.” The old man in a golden robe said faintly.
“That person is from the 4 ancient sects?” The man in a gray robe was taken aback.
“It is possible… Forget it, this matter ends here. There is no need to offend the 4 ancient sects for some true demonic aura.” The old man in a golden robe sighed, then he turned around and flashed toward the entrance.
Although Golden Ge Sect was also a sect with ten thousand years of history, it was insignificant as compared to the 4 ancient sects.
What about the muscular man in black? Will he still pursue Liu Ming?
