In the top secret room of Separation and Reunion Hall, it was filled with white mist.
Elder Fu Zhi stood with his hands behind, and the Ying Yang Separation and Reunion Mirror was still floating in front of him. The ancient mirror was flickering, and rays of lights kept shooting out into the air.
Suddenly, Elder Fu Zhi’s heart was moved. He waved his sleeve. Under a roll of white light, a round water mirror appeared in front of him.
The water mirror was crystal clear, and the edge exuded a silky fresh breath.
The water mirror shone and revealed a clear scene, which was Liu Ming in the stone house.
At this moment, the black and white air flows around him had turned into 2 dragons that circled around his body endlessly.
“He is really an interesting kid. His spiritual power is so well refined that under the support of Ying Yang Separation and Reunion Mirror, it can be divided into yin and yang without any effort…” Fu Zhi murmured interestingly.
“However, this is just the first step into the Crystallization Period. The real difficulty is yet to come…”
This esoteric elder seemed to be quite interested in Liu Ming. After talking to himself, he flicked his sleeve again, and the water mirror burst apart immediately.
As time passed, a clear “pop” sounded in the stone house where Liu Ming was.
The last jade bottle in front of Liu Ming also broke apart. With a symbol, a cluster of scarlet flames wrapped the yunyang pill and flew into his mouth.
He immediately felt that a boulder had been dropped into his Spiritual Sea. The vortex-like liquid true spirit tumbled again violently.
Liu Ming’s complexion became pale and abnormal. His dantian seemed to be sliced by a small knife. The black and white qi spun and formed a mist ball of 10 meters size, covering him up completely.
At this moment, the true spirit in the Liu Ming’s Spiritual Sea had already condensed into a gel state, and it was emitting waves of powerful spiritual power fluctuations.
The natural aura near the Separation and Reunion Hall also gathered at 1 spot like it had received some kind of influence, forming a gray vortex-like cloud.
Naturally, Liu Ming was more aware of the situation in his body at this moment than Fu Zhi. The true spirit in the Spiritual Sea was gelled. It was just 1 step away from condensing into crystals.
He gritted his teeth, took out a small white bottle and crushed it directly.
A black elixir was thrown into the mouth. It was the black light pill he got in the outer door major competition.
The next moment, his fingers changed quickly. A cloud of black gas flew out from his forehead, turning into a bone shield that was flashing with black light; it was the Nine Skulls Shield.
Liu Ming launched one after another symbol at the Nine Skulls Shield.
He whispered and clutched into the air with 1 hand.
A blurred black light flew out from the Nine Skulls Shield and flashed into his body.
When Yan Jue forged this Nine Skulls Shield, after refining it to the prototype of the magic weapon, he wanted to use its power to break through to the Crystallization Period. Now, this benefited Liu Ming instead.
There was a thunderous blast from the mist ball covering Liu Ming’s body. Numerous vortexes appeared on the surface of the mist ball, then they slowly entered his body.
In the Spiritual Sea, the gel spiritual power finally changed again and began to converge in the middle.
The air above Separation and Reunion Hall suddenly fluctuated, the gray clouds turned into a whirlpool that sucked the natural aura within a few miles. It grew bigger and bigger.
At this moment, the gray cloud that had enlarged to the size of 100 meters suddenly shook violently. After a few loud rumbling noises, it collapsed in an instant.
At the next moment, a huge black light beam broke through the sky above the Separation and Reunion Hall. In the light beam, silver snakes danced wildly, and the deafening thunderous sound spread far in all directions.
Among the black light beam, 9 pearl-like white light spots could be seen clearly. After spinning around, the light spots disappeared along with the black light beam.
“I didn’t expect that he really advanced to the Crystallization Period, but only 9 spiritual power crystals are formed. Could it be that he only has Three Spiritual Pulse? This is extremely rare, but it is a pity that he doesn’t have much potential left.” Elder Fu Zhi raised his head like his gaze could see through the roof of the palace and see the black beam. He first nodded, then he shook his head and closed his eyes.
In the stone house, Liu Ming had no sadness or joy on his face. As the 9 crystals began to circulate slowly in his Spiritual Sea, he still kept launching symbols. When the true spirit fluctuations gradually calmed down in his Spiritual Sea, a violent purple light burst out from his body.
Liu Ming suddenly showed pain; his body stiffened suddenly, accompanied by regular bursts of sharp tingling. Circles of dense faint purple spirit patterns also appeared on his body which looked similar to his demonized form.
After a flash of purple light on his body surface, with every tingling, a thumb-sized purple crystal appeared.
This kind of constant tingling occurred as many as 144 times before it stopped suddenly!
Among the purple light bursting out of the body at this moment, there were 144 crystals that were the same as the 9 crystals just now, but their color was purple!
Soft “bangs” sounded almost simultaneously!
Before Liu Ming could react, these crystals turned into a dark demonic qi and burst open at the same time.
Liu Ming only felt his body tremble, and his clothes were blasted far away. The soul-recovering bag 100 meters away emitted a cloud of black gas, and Bone Scorpion and Demon Flying Skull flashed out from it.
The stiffness instantly dissipated. On his skin, there were purple spirit patterns, that only appeared after demonization, all over his body.
“This…” Liu Ming himself was a little dumbfounded, but he could clearly feel the majestic power coming out of his body. The spiritual power was several times powerful than before.
With a move of his mind, he flicked his finger. “Pop“, a purple phantasm shot out and hit the wall of the stone house.
With a sharp piercing sound, a finger-sized hole suddenly appeared on the wall reinforced by the defensive enchantment.
Liu Ming stared at his palm in a daze. Just now, he only used less than 30% of his power to break through the enchantment in the stone house. The enchantment here was to defend against the people who had just advanced to the Crystallization Period just now and still couldn’t control tyrannical spiritual power.
The full blow of an ordinary Crystallization Period cultivator would not necessarily shake the enchantment here.
“Master…” The Demon Flying Skull and Bone Scorpion hiding in the distance couldn’t help trembling 😨 after Liu Ming’s unscrupulously released the powerful spiritual pressure.
“How did you 2 come out? Oh… come here.” Liu Ming first glanced at his empty waist, then he saw the soul-recovering bag in the corner and immediately understood it.
As he said, he raised his hand with a black light to roll up the 2 spiritual pets; at the same time, he withdrew the spiritual power. The purple spirit patterns disappeared with a flash of purple light.
In Liu Ming’s Spiritual Sea, 144 purple crystals appeared with a purple flash. They were slowly circulated together with the original 9 silver crystals.
“Congratulations master for advancing to the Crystallization Period successfully!”
Seeing Liu Ming returning to his normal appearance, Bone Scorpion and Demon Flying Skull suddenly became spirited. They kept rubbing against Liu Ming’s clothes.
They were connected with Liu Ming’s mind, so they could naturally feel Liu Ming’s excitement at the moment.
Liu Ming smiled slightly. The joy of successfully advancing to the Crystallization Period surged into his heart bit by bit. As for the mysterious 144 purple crystals, he had to find Luo Hu to learn more about it.
After comforting the 2 spiritual pets, he kept them back into the soul-recovering bag.
At the same time, the light of the Ying Yang Separation and Reunion Mirror suddenly dimmed and quickly retracted.
Liu Ming glanced at the roof without being bothered much, and he closed his eyes again.
After all, he had just advanced to the Crystallization Period, and the true spirit in his body had not yet been completely stabilized. He needed to stay behind closed doors for a period of time and adjust his breath slightly.
In a side room of the Emerald Cloud Peak, a white-faced man in his thirties was looking surprised at a messaging jade slip in his hand. He was the courtyard master surnamed Lu.
“Liu Ming actually broke through to the Crystallization Period? It seems that I really underestimated this disciple.” After a long while, Master Lu said slowly.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Lu, when I determined that Liu Ming, because of his Three Spiritual Pulse body, would not be able to advance to the Crystallization Period, I missed a few chances to recruit him. His result in the outer door major competition and his performance in challenging the Void Spirit Tower are known to almost everyone. This is really unfortunate.” On the other hand, Hao Yue, a short boy, said with a pity on his face.
“With the Three Spiritual Pulse, he can actually break through to the Crystallization Period. This is very rare among our Taiqing Sect’s past generations. Could it be that this disciple has some kind of special physique that you and I missed out?” The courtyard master surnamed Lu said after thinking about it.
“I have guessed about this too, but I have heard that other people from other peaks had checked it after the major competition. His Three Spiritual Pulse must be true. He shouldn’t have any special spiritual body. Maybe, this disciple had his own favorable encounter.” Hao Yue shook his head again.
“En, since that’s the case. Even if Liu Ming has advanced to the Crystallization Period by chance, it will be extremely difficult for him to go further in the future. We don’t have to be too regretful about this.” The courtyard master surnamed Lu sighed and changed the thread of discussion.
Hearing the words, Hao Yue nodded slightly without speaking, but a thoughtful look flashed across his face.
Did Fu Zhi not really the 144 crystals in Liu Ming’s body? Well, luckily everyone is underestimating him? Otherwise, his secret would have been discovered. Maybe if he joins a demonic sect, he will be the one with the highest talent 😏…
