In a remote corner outside the ruins, with a loud sound, a hole was opened on the crystal clear light curtain. A green sword light flew out from it.
The sword light faded, and the figure of Liu Ming appeared. He just took out the map jade slip and checked it with Divine Thought, then he released a jade boat, flying far away. The destination was the nearest market.
Not long after, a slim black figure slowly emerged from a tall bush outside the ruins. It was the Black Phoenix Fairy.
She looked at the fading black light and frowned slightly.
“This man is actually still alive. If this is the case, Blood Emperor is most likely killed by ths man. His strength is really unfathomable.” After a long while, Black Phoenix Fairy showed a strange expression as she muttered to herself.
Although the 2 were both among the best in the younger generation of evil cultivators, there was no sadness on Black Phoenix Fairy’s face at this moment.
Then, after the girl sneered, she turned into a cloud of black gas and flew into another direction.
After rushing for a day and night, Liu Ming appeared in a small market.
As soon as he stepped into the market, he went straight to the stone house where the teleportation array was located. The person in charge of the teleportation here was a middle-aged muscular man of the Golden Ge Sect.
After 2 more teleportations, Liu Ming appeared in an inconspicuous small market tens of thousands of miles away from the Pegasus Grassland.
This oasis market was located in a desert surrounded by endless yellow sand. The center of this market was the only oasis within a radius of hundreds of miles. As time goes by, some people build a small market around the oasis.
Although there were several shops and inns in the market, there were few people on the street, but this was exactly what Liu Ming wanted.
He randomly found an inn and asked for an independent courtyard. After placing 2 enchantments in the room, he entered the secret room and sat cross-legged on the ground. He couldn’t wait to enter the mysterious space.
In the grey and mysterious space, Luo Hu stood with his hands behind his back and quietly stood not far away from Liu Ming as if he was waiting for him.
“Senior Luo Hu.” Seeing this, Liu Ming looked startled. He immediately cupped his fist and saluted.
“You did a good job this time. The prison has absorbed a lot of true demonic aura this time. The seal has been repaired. It is enough to maintain normal operation for more than a hundred years.” Luo Hu said faintly to Liu Ming.
Liu Ming felt relieved when he heard the words, and he couldn’t help but let out a sigh of relief.
It meant he would not be in danger of being soul stealing by the demon; he could finally cultivate at ease.
His strength would be greatly improved in these hundred years. Maybe he could find a way to resist the demon.
“Don’t be too happy too early. The prison seal is only temporary. Such a little true demonic aura is not enough to repair the seal.” Luo Hu seemed to notice the excitement in Liu Ming’s expression, and he said coldly.
“Thank you senior for the guidance.” Liu Ming was stunned after hearing the words. He showed a wry smile and nodded.
“Besides, I would like to remind you that the dry corpse you found under the altar is the corpse of an ancient demon, and it belongs to a Celestial State powerhouse.” Luo Hu nodded slightly, then he said something that shocked Liu Ming again.
“What? Celestial State powerhouse?” Liu Ming was shocked when he heard the words.
He had seen many Real Pellet State masters in the Taiqing Sect, but he had never seen someone of the Celestial State; it could be regarded as a legendary existence.
Even in the Middle Sky Continent, its level of an old monster. They were the backbone of the thousands years old sect. They generally wouldn’t appear before others. He actually got the corpse of the Celestial State…
Thinking of this, Liu Ming couldn’t help but feel his heart thumping. Even his tongue was a little dry.
However, without waiting for him to speak, Luo Hu waved his sleeves indifferently, and a gust of wind came suddenly.
Liu Ming’s vision turned dark, then he had already returned to the secret room. He couldn’t help but curse.
He originally wanted to ask Luo Hu a few words about this Celestial State corpse. Now it seemed that Luo Hu didn’t want to talk much to him.
“Celestial State’s powerhouse…” Liu Ming muttered to himself, and his face couldn’t help showing a bit of excitement.
Even if it was just a corpse, its value could still be imagined.
After Liu Ming thought about it, Liu Ming made up his mind to return to the Taiqing Sect. He would find another chance to investigate about it.
At this moment, Liu Ming seemed to think of something again. He took out the 2 black rings and inspected them carefully.
When he was in the cave, he didn’t have the time to take a good look at these objects.
The pair of rings were pure black. Except for their light weight, they really didn’t have anything special.
After studying carefully for a while, Liu Ming surprisingly discovered that there were no spirit patterns enchantment engraved on this pair of black rings.
However, these black rings were obtained from a master of the Celestial State. It certainly wouldn’t be useless.
He tried to inject a trace of spiritual power into the black rings again, but unfortunately, there was still no response.
With a thought, he threw up 1 ring and launched a few fireballs and wind blades at it.
Suddenly, there was a burst of crackling noises. After the explosion, the ring slowly landed on the ground. Under a glance, there was not even a trace of mark on it.
As a result, Liu Ming tried Heavy Water Droplet, Sword Controlling Technique, Golden Fallen Sand, etc. one by one, but he still could not cause any damage to it. As he couldn’t get any other findings, Liu Ming could only give it up temporarily.
Immediately afterward, he took out the storage bracelets of Blood Emperor and other cultivators and checked them carefully.
The storage talisman of the Blood Emperor alone contained more than 5 million spirit stones, 5 superb spiritual weapons, and a few bottles of elixir.
It was a pity that all spiritual weapons could only be used by blood cultivators, not suitable for Liu Ming. The storage talismans of the other cultivators also had some spiritual weapons that could only be used by demonic cultivator. There was nothing special among them. He could only sell them for spirit stones.
Liu Ming categorized these items slightly and stored them in the Sumeru Ring, then he sat on the bed and began to think about his next move.
Now that the crisis of the mysterious bubble was temporarily lifted, the most important thing for him was to prepare for advancing to the Crystallization Period.
It was not too long before the next mysterious bubble burst, so he must increase his spiritual power again several times before that.
His own spiritual power was extremely pure. As for the auxiliary items needed to break through to the Crystallization Period, he had prepared a lot. Now, as long as he hands in the head of Blood Emperor to the Life and Death Pavilion, he could exchange millions of contribution points. He could just borrow the Yin Yang Separation and Reunion Mirror.
In this way, the chance of advancing to the Crystallization Period should be about 40% to 50%.
“Half the chance is still a little less.” Liu Ming sighed; he was still a little worried.
But with such a high probability, if the other ordinary Condensation State cultivators knew about it, they would probably be jealous.
After Liu Ming thought about it for a while, he made up his mind and decided not to rush back to Thousands Spirit Mountain for the time being.
He still had some time. He planned to try his luck outside to see if he could find 1 or 2 rare spirit items that were helpful in advancing to the Crystallization Period.
Over this period of time, he had killed many evil cultivators. The spirit stones on his body alone had exceeded 10 million, and he still had a lot of demonic spiritual weapons, elixir and other things that needed to be dealt with.
Middle Sky Continent Central Plain, Zhen Yuan City.
Zhen Yuan City was 1 of the largest cities in the Dazhen Dynasty. It was a 1 of the mortal countries controlled by the Taiqing Sect, and it was also a prosperous place frequently visited by cultivators.
The green stone road at the main city gate was enough for a number of horse-drawn carriages to run side by side. The city wall was 100 meters tall.
Outside the city, different kinds of escape lights were flying through the sky. When they reached the city, they all landed respectfully and walked in.
After all, there was an anti-flying enchantment set by the Taiqing Sect, and the Taiqing Sect disciples were stationed in it. If anyone did not follow the rules, the consequence was obvious.
There were millions of people in Zhen Yuan City. Of course, most of them were ordinary people without spiritual power.
The cultivators did not bother to communicate with mortals. They almost all gathered in a small area surrounded by a few streets in the city.
In this area, ordinary mortals didn’t dare to set foot.
Among them, Tianyuan Street was the street with the most cultivators.
At this moment, Liu Ming, wearing a green robe, was walking slowly on Tianyuan Street. He was aimlessly looking at the shops on both sides of the road.
Now it had been a few years since the appearance of the demon ruins in Pegasus Grassland, but Liu Ming did not rush back to Thousands Spirit Mountain. He had been traveling among several mortal kingdoms controlled by the Taiqing Sect.
Suddenly, he stopped and walked into a shop that was obviously much taller than the shops on both sides.
Generally speaking, whether to buy or sell, choosing a larger shop would be a better choice.
This spiritual weapon shop named Clear Water Pavilion. It looked quite magnificent. The front of the shop alone was more than 100 meters wide.
When he entered the shop, he felt that the window sills all around were clean; it was spacious and bright. There were rows of shelves made of white jade. There were hundreds of shiny spiritual weapons placed on them.
Beside each shelf, a staff in green clothes was serving the customers.
Liu Ming glanced at it and found that most of them were intermediate grade spiritual weapons, and the best ones were only a few upper grade spiritual weapons.
A staff with keen eyes hurriedly greeted Liu Ming when he stepped in. He felt that his aura was unfathomable. Although he couldn’t see through Liu Ming’s actual cultivation, he knew he was a big buyer.
What will Liu Ming get in this city? Will he get a new spiritual weapon? Or items that help advancing to the Crystallization Period?
