The thin and tall old man hesitated for a while, then he nodded.
The 2 exchanged the items quickly. After Liu Ming put the red wooden box containing yunyang ganoderma into the Sumeru Ring, he was relieved.
Although he suffered a little loss in this transaction, he could refine the cold condensing pill at any time. He was already very satisfied to be able to get a spiritual item to assist in advancing to the Crystallization Period.
The exchange meeting was still going on. The appearance of cold condensing pill and yunyang ganoderma had heathen up the atmosphere.
Liu Ming was a little absent-minded in the following exchange meeting now. Although other things were precious, he didn’t want them.
After half an hour, the exchange meeting finally came to an end.
When the previously veiled female cultivator sighed and was about to put away the jade bottle on the table that no one cared about from beginning to end, a voice sounded from behind.
“Wait a minute, miss, I want this bottle of qiongyu liquid, but there I don’t have the core of the fire toad beast, so please offer me a price.” It was Liu Ming who stopped the veiled female cultivator who was about to return and leave.
“60… no, 500,000 spirit stone.” The veiled female cultivator was overjoyed when she heard that. She glanced at Liu Ming, and said hesitantly.
500,000 spirit stones for a bottle of qiongyu liquid. This price was a little lower than the market price.
Liu Ming didn’t say anything more after hearing that. He took out 50 upper grade spirit stones and handed them over.
In this way, the 2 successfully completed the transaction. The veiled female cultivator nodded gratefully to Liu Ming and walked out soon.
Liu Ming held the jade bottle in his hand, and he felt a coolness seeping through it. After thinking for a moment, he put it into the Sumeru Ring.
“Mr. Ye, please stay for a while.”
Just as Liu Ming was about to leave, a deep voice sounded in his ears. He looked up and surprisingly saw Fu Yunzi walking over with a smile. The woman in white clothes also followed behind him.
“It turns out to be Mr. Fuyun, may I know what’s the matter?” Liu Ming frowned slightly, and he asked calmly.
“It’s just a trivial matter. I just want to ask whether mister still has any cold condensing pill left. I want to exchange some. In terms of price, Mr. Ye can rest assured that I will definitely not let you down.” Fu Yunzi spoke quite sincerely to Liu Ming.
The woman in white clothes behind him was also looking at Liu Ming with expectation.
“I may have to disappoint you two. I only have those 6 cold condensing pills. You should see that I have exchanged them.” Liu Ming said apologetically
“Is there really nothing left? Even if it’s not an earth grade elixir.” The woman in white clothes couldn’t help but said.
“No, I bought those 6 elixirs at a high price in a market a few years ago. If it weren’t for breaking through the bottleneck of the Crystallization Period, I wouldn’t exchange them.” Liu Ming shook his head and sighed.
“Where did Mr. Ye get the cold condensing pill, can you tell me about it?” Fu Yunzi asked with a change of expression.
“If you want this elixir, you can go to Changyang Market near Green Sprout Mountain Range to try your luck. As far as I know, there seems to be a lot of cold condensing pills, and there are quite some flawless grades.” Liu Ming said lightly.
Fu Yunzi and the woman in white clothes looked at each other suddenly when they heard the words, they seemed to be suspicious.
After all, the cold condensing pill with such excellent effect was extremely difficult to refine. Since when it appeared in a large batch on the market?
Seeing their expressions, Liu Ming didn’t say anything. He cupped his fist and bade farewell.
Walking out of the white jade hall, Liu Ming made a gesture and flew into the sky in a black escape light.
From the expressions of Fu Yunzi, Liu Ming noticed something strange. It seemed that the Thousands Association Chamber of Commerce still had not given up on investigating the whereabouts of the alchemy master who appeared in Changyang Market that year.
Today, he took out 6 cold condensing pill of earth grade at once. This had obviously aroused their suspicion.
But he could no longer bother about this. The most important thing at this stage was to advance to the Crystallization Period, otherwise everything would be in vain.
After a short while, in a side hall of the White Jade Hall, Fu Yunzi in a red robe and the woman in white clothes stood facing each other.
“Master, do you think that person is telling the truth?” The woman in white clothes couldn’t help asking after thinking for a moment.
“There seems to be something hidden between the man’s words. I guess he didn’t want to tell us the true origin of the cold condensing pill. But he mentioned Changyang Market. When the Green Sky Illusory Palace was opened, there was indeed an alchemy master who can refine the cold condensing pill. Perhaps, he didn’t lie to us.” Fu Yunzi frowned and thought for a while, then he sighed lightly.
“Could it be the person that the superior asked us to pay attention to many years ago?” The woman in white clothes seemed to think of something and said so.
“Yes. No matter what, this matter needs to be investigated. After all, the earth grade cold condensing pill will help you break through the bottleneck of the Crystallization Period,” Fu Yunzi said slowly.
“Thank you master for thinking for me.” The woman in white clothes suddenly stood up with joy and said with a salute.
Not long after, Liu Ming, who had been away from the sect for 2 years, finally returned to the Thousands Spirit Mountain Range.
However, instead of returning to his cave house, he flew directly to the Life and Death Pavilion.
There was still a faint black mist lingering here, which was quite gloomy. It made a sharp contrast with the crowded Thousands Spirit Mountain.
In the pavilion, the middle-aged deputy was sitting idly behind the stone platform, flipping through a seemingly dilapidated ancient book in his hand.
“Deputy Fang.” Liu Ming stepped into the pavilion and greeted him from a distance.
After visiting the Life and Death Pavilion several times, especially after offering the heads of Withered Bone Monk and others a few years ago, Liu Ming and the middle-aged deputy gradually became familiar.
This person’s surname was Fang Lin. Although his temperament was cold, he was nice person. After he paid the contribution points last time, no ordinary Taiqing Sect disciples knew that Liu Ming was the one who killed Withered Bone Monk.
This did save him a lot of trouble.
“Oh, it’s you. This time, who did you kill again?” After Deputy Fang realized it was Liu Ming, he put away the ancient book in his hand, stood up and spoke with expectation in his eyes.
When Liu Ming saw this, his heart moved slightly. He vaguely heard that this Deputy Fang hated the evil cultivator so much that he even gave up the benefits of the inner disciple and came to this Life and Death Pavilion as deputy. It seemed that the rumors were true.
He smiled slightly, put his hand on the stone platform, and suddenly several bloody heads and a meat paste mud lined up on the stone platform.
“Sir really has a great harvest this time. These are all evil cultivators on the life and death list. It seems that there are still within the top 100… Huh?” Deputy Fang glanced across these heads 1 by 1. When he saw the meat paste, his expression froze abruptly.
But the next moment, he suddenly moved his arm and pointed at the meat paste with a finger. After a flash of the turquoise finger trigger, a dozen green runes flew into the meat paste.
An incredible situation appeared!
Under the light, the dark red meat paste squirmed and restored into a lifelike head. The face still retained the unbelievable expression before death.
“This… Could this be Blood Emperor who ranked 1st on the life and death list!” Deputy Fang looked up in amazement, and he said with a deep breath.
“Exactly.” Liu Ming calmly met the man’s gaze and said without hesitation.
“Great, very great! Sir is really capable. Even Blood Emperor was not your opponent. This evil cultivator has been at the top of the life and death list for nearly a hundred years. Even the Crystallization Period inner sect cultivator may not be able to kill this man. You now have made a great contribution to our sect this time.” Deputy Fang seemed to refresh his thought about Liu Ming. After assessing him for a moment, he laughed and retrieved the head.
“It’s just a fluke.” Liu Ming replied nonchalantly.
“Okay, give me the token.” Deputy Fang saw that Liu Ming was reluctant to say more, so he naturally wouldn’t ask more. He said excitedly.
After a while, Liu Ming’s token was increased by 1.05 million contribution points.
“Thank you, Deputy Fang. By the way, please continue to help keep the matter secret and don’t disclose my name.” Liu Ming said and paid 5000 contribution points to Deputy Fang.
“Of course, as long as you are willing to spend contribution points, our pavilion is naturally obliged to keep it secret for you. This is also one of our rules.” Deputy Fang nodded and replied.
Liu Ming smiled, turned around and wanted to walk outside.
“Remind you, the origin of Blood Emperor is very mysterious. He isn’t an ordinary evil cultivator. He must have a lot of stories behind. Junior fellow apprentice must be careful if you go out.” Deputy Fang’s voice came from behind.
“Thank you for the reminder.” Liu Ming’s heart shuddered. After turning his head back and cupping his fist, he turned and continued to stride outside the door.
When he went to Pegasus Grassland, although he had changed his appearance, he was still tracked by the Blood Emperor and others. It seemed that he had to find another way to disguise himself in the future.
After leaving the Life and Death Pavilion, Liu Ming quietly returned to the cave house in the Fallen Serene Peak.
In the next few months, except for visiting the sect market, he did not go out again. Instead, he stayed in the cave house to make the preparations to break through to the Crystallization Period.
6 months later, Liu Ming, dressed in Fallen Serene Peak’s inner disciple costume, appeared between the 2 steep peaks of Thousands Spirit Mountain.
Liu Ming hovered quietly in mid-air, letting the mountain wind beat all over his clothes.
In the high sky between 2 two mountain peaks, there was a silver-white palace floating there. It was about 1000 meters high. It was made of white and flawless jade and exuded a faint gleam. It looked very exquisite.
After Liu Ming saw clearly, a plaque made of gilt and black jade was written with 4 words “Separation and Reunion Hall” could be seen on top of the front door.
Will the man being chained under the blood sea revenge for Blood Emperor? Who is he? Blood Emperor’s master maybe? Finally, it’s Liu Ming’s turn to advance to the Crystallization Period…
