The “Separation and Reunion Hall” in front was where the Taiqing Sect’s treasure Yin Yang Separation and Reunion Mirror was kept. It could be regarded as one of the most important forbidden areas in the Taiqing Sect.
Not only were there many enchantments, there were also layers of array inside and outside the hall. What’s more, there was a Celestial State esoteric elder guarded here all the time to prevent foreign enemies from invading.
Liu Ming had known this information a long time ago. After standing still in front of the palace for a while, he took a deep breath and flickered to the door of the palace.
There was no disciple guarding this Separation and Reunion Hall. The door was closed all year round, giving people a sense of silence and remoteness.
Liu Ming took out the inner disciple token and shook it slightly in front of the gate.
The closed door was lit up with a silver light, but it soon dimmed again. Then, the door slowly opened from the inside with a creaking sound.
Liu Ming’s heart shuddered slightly, then he stepped in.
On the first floor of the main hall, it was still empty silence. On the ground in the center of the main hall, there was a white teleportation array. Other than that, there was no one else.
Liu Ming stood at the door for a while. Seeing that no one came out, a gentle voice sounded as he was about to shout.
“Don’t look around, come in.”
Liu Ming’s heart shuddered. After looking around, he still found no one here. He then stepped forward.
At the same time, the door behind him closed tightly.
“You are from the Fallen Serene Peak? You are also training Tiger Dragon Hell Prison?” As Liu Ming was dazzled, a short old man appeared out of thin air before him. He was observing him with a grin.
The old man had gray hair, slightly long face that was full of faint wrinkles, but his eyes were gleaming faintly as if he could see through a person at a glance.
“Reporting to senior, disicple is Liu Ming; I’m indeed from the Fallen Serene Peak.” Liu Ming’s heart was shocked. Needless to say, he knew that this was the Celestial State powerhouse. He immediately bowed and answered respectfully.
“I’m Fuzhi, responsible for guarding this Separation and Reunion Hall. You can call me Elder Fu, your cultivation has already reached the Condensation State perfect stage, so you must be here for the separation and reunion mirror.”
“Greetings to Elder Fu, I indeed want to use the power of Yin Yang Separation and Reunion Mirror to advance to the Crystallization Period.” Liu Ming sighed in relief, and he quickly expressed his intention.
“According to the sect rules, all inner disciples can borrow the Yin Yang Separation and Reunion Mirror when breaking through to the Crystallization Period, but have you prepared the contribution points needed.” The white old man nodded slightly and said slowly.
“I have already prepared for it.
Upon hearing this, Liu Ming quickly took out the inner disciple token and offered it with both hands.
“You don’t need to be so cautious, I’m just the guardian of this treasure.” Seeing Liu Ming’s respectful look, the old man with a white hair waved his hand toward Liu Ming. He hooked his finger slightly, and the token flew into his hand.
The old man waved his finger on the token, and 250,000 contribution points were paid.
“Okay, this is the connection disk array of the Yin Yang Separation and Reunion Mirror, you take it.” The old man with a white hair returned the token to Liu Ming and gave him a small black and white disk array.
Liu Ming quickly reached out and took it, then he stood on the teleportation array according to the old man’s request.
“What you practice is ghost technique, then you will be transported to the 12 Branch Cave House. After a day and a night, the Yin Yang Separation and Reunion Mirror will be turned on. Whether you can smoothly enter the Crystallization Period depends on your own luck. “The old man with a white hair solemnly reminded.
“Thank you Elder Fu for your advice.” Liu Ming said respectfully again.
As soon as the old man with a white hair waved his hand, the teleportation array immediately buzzed.
Liu Ming only felt blurry in front of him. The next moment, he appeared in a stone house with a heavy yin qi. It was filled with a gray mist which gave people a feeling quite similar to the Tai Yin Cave.
Liu Ming learned from the ancient book that in this Separation and Reunion Hall, a lot of training places were set. They were named according to the Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branches.
The 12th Branch Cave House was the cave of yin qi; the cave of wood qi, the cave of fire qi, etc. were quite similar to the Five Element Spirit Cave.
All of these were to provide the inner disciples with the most suitable place to practice and increase the chance of success.
Liu Ming glanced around the stone house.
The surrounding walls were gleaming. An enchantment that isolated the fluctuations of spiritual power seemed to be set.
In the middle of the stone house, there was a stone platform. The stone platform was densely inscribed with some runes that seemed to be an array. There was a small round hole in the middle. Other than that, the house was empty.
With a thought, Liu Ming set his gaze at the stone platform again. The hole was matched with the connection disk array. He then knew about its function after thinking slightly. He put the connection disk array and sat cross-legged.
After he sat down, he took out 3 small bottles.
The first emerald green bottle contained half a bottle of bright red liquid which was the blood of the nine-color spirit deer. He could consume this liquid directly.
In the second bottle was a scarlet elixir which was the yunyang pill made of yunyang ganoderma.
As for the last bottle, it contained an earth grade cold condensing pill with 6 elixir patterns that he specially reserved for himself.
After doing all this, Liu Ming adjusted his breathing and gradually fell into meditation.
A day and a night passed quickly.
Suddenly, there was a rumbling sound from the top of the stone house. The gray yin qi gathered and swirled like a vortex above the stone platform where Liu Ming was sitting.
Liu Ming opened his eyes in an instant, picked up the third bottle without hesitation, crushed it, and swallowed the cold condensing pill.
In an instant, black gas surged out from him. In just a second, the black gas formed a black substantial mist cocoon that spun around him.
In the huge mist cocoon, there were waves of dragon and tiger roars across the sky. 3 black dragons and 3 black tigers could be seen looming in the black mist.
The earth grade cold condensing pill with 6 elixir patterns was still above Liu Ming’s expectation.
At the same time, in a special secret room on the top floor of the Separation and Reunion Hall, it was filled with rolling white mist. Upon a closer look, this mist wasn’t formed by the natural aura, but it was formed by tiny crystal particles.
These white mists all come from a black and white bronze mirror suspended in the center of the space.
Fu Zhi closed his eyes tightly and stood quietly in front of the bronze mirror. A spiritual pressure exuded from his body, forming a circle of ripples in this space.
As the white mist in the space became more and more dense, Fu Zhi suddenly stretched out his right hand with a solemn expression. His 5 fingers changed rapidly as if he was trying to calculate something.
After a while, he suddenly stopped making gestures and waved 1 hand. A white symbol flew into the ancient mirror. At the same time, he began to chant.
In an instant, a light flashed out from the ancient mirror, piercing into the distance sky…
In the stone house, Liu Ming only felt his body tighten. The connection disk array on the stone platform burst into bright black and white light.
In the next moment, a huge light beam suddenly shot out from the rolling black gas on top. Wherever it passed, the surrounding yin qi also decomposed into 2 colors of gray and white, covering Liu Ming’s body at once.
Liu Ming’s complexion looked painful, and a huge pressure suddenly applied on his whole body.
He only felt that his whole body became extremely heavy. Even moving his arm was extremely difficult as if he was under boundless water pressure.
Fortunately, his body was extremely tough. He had adapted to this pressure in just a few seconds.
Immediately, 2 auras of cold and hot were infused into Liu Ming’s body at the same time. He only felt that half of his body was abnormally hot, and the other half was extremely cold.
The black gas surging around his body melted like snow after being illuminated by the light beam. The 3 dragons and 3 tigers also dissipated quickly in a few roars, turning into the black and white air flow that surrounded Liu Ming.
This feeling was quite marvelous. The familiar Tiger Dragon Hell Prison’s spiritual power had turned into 2 immovable energies, which made Liu Ming feel quite strange.
But soon, he calmed down. After all, the black and white spiritual power originated from his own spiritual power. Soon, he was able to control them freely.
“This is the effect of Yin Yang Separation and Reunion Mirror…” Liu Ming muttered to himself.
Although he had read in the classics that Yin Yang Separation and Reunion Mirror could differentiate the chaos power of Yin and Yang, thereby increasing the chance of breaking through to the Crystallization Period, he did not expect it to be like this.
Liu Ming didn’t hesitate much. He pointed in the air and opened his mouth. The nine-color spirit deer’s blood essence in the emerald jade bottle flew straight into his mouth.
As the blood essence went into the abdomen, a hot sensation suddenly rose up and dispersed into all his body parts. The spiritual power flowing in his meridians was also accelerated.
The black and white qi surrounding Liu Ming vibrated fiercely. They were doubled in just a moment, completely covering his entire body.
At the same time, Liu Ming’s face suddenly became red and white. The pure spiritual power in his body became distinctly hot and cold under the effect of the Yin Yang Separation and Reunion Mirror.
He took a deep breath. He changed gestures quickly, launching a few symbols into his Spiritual Sea.
The liquid true spirit in the Spiritual Sea suddenly vibrated regularly, then it began to rotate slowly during the alternation of cold and heat. It became more and more solid.
Liu Ming felt this change in the Spiritual Sea, and he was delighted. This Yin Yang Separation and Reunion Mirror could separate the power of yin and yang; yan was for regeneration and yin was for elimination. This happened in a cycle which made his spiritual power more and more refined. It had increased the success rate of breaking through to the Crystallization Period by a lot.
He made it finally? 🎉🎉🎉?
