“Alright. Since Heaven Treasure House is not far away, I will not bother you anymore. I have a bottle of elixir that improves spiritual power here, it’s your reward for showing me the way.” Liu Ming glanced at the young man with thick eyebrows, and he threw an emerald small bottle to him.
The young man with thick eyebrows took the bottle and bowed in a hurry to thank him. When he opened the bottle to see the elixir inside with a face full of surprises, Liu Ming had already disappeared without a trace.
Liu Ming did not enter Heavenly Treasure House directly, but he disguised himself into a muscular man with a black face before walking in.
The precedent of his whereabouts being leaked by the Big Dipper Pavilion, he was more cautious than before.
If this Heavenly Treasure House really had a lot of rare materials like the young man with thick eyebrows said, its forces would not be weak. Thus, the disguise was extremely necessary.
After a while, the muscular man with a black face created by Liu Ming appeared outside a 100 meters tall pagoda-shaped building. On the golden plaque above the door, the 3 words ‘Heavenly Treasure House’ were emitting circles of golden halo.
Liu Ming walked in without hesitation.
“Respected customer, greetings!” The person who shouted was a plain-looking shop assistant. He seemed to notice Liu Ming’s high cultivation level, so he greeted respectfully.
Liu Ming used Divine Thought to scan and found that this guy was actually at the Condensation Period early stage. Compared with the Spirit Apostle shopkeeper in a normal shop, this Heavenly Treasure House was indeed at a higher level.
“I’m the shopkeeper of Heavenly Treasure House. Sir comes here from afar, why don’t we go upstairs to have a cup of tea while talking business.” A middle-aged man in a gray robe abruptly appeared in front of Liu Ming.
When Liu Ming saw this man, his heart shuddered.
This middle-aged shopkeeper exuded the aura of the Crystallization Period.
“Alright.” Liu Ming nodded slightly after a slight thought.
Afterward, he followed this man straight up to the 4th floor, and he entered an elegant room with an area of 80 meters.
Unlike the elegant room in the Bat Clan medicine shop he had seen before, there were only a few paintings hanging on the walls of this room. Besides, there weren’t any soundproof enchantments, but Liu Ming still discovered 2 inconspicuous faint purple on the door.
After the shopkeeper in a gray robe personally served a cup of tea for Liu Ming, he sat opposite Liu Ming and asked with a smile on his face,
“How do I call mister?” The shopkeeper in a gray robe asked politely.
“My surname is Ouyang.” Liu Ming took a sip and replied faintly.
“Mr. Ouyang, although the River Moon City is not small, it is located in a remote place. There are often high level beastkins nearby, so people usually come here by teleportation array. Mr. Ouyang seems so unfamiliar to me, so you must come to this city specifically?” The shopkeeper smiled.
“I’m looking for some upper grade five light liquid, but I couldn’t find it after searching in several markets. I happened to hear that Heavenly Treasure House may have it, that’s why I visit your shop.” Liu Ming said slowly.
“Upper grade five light liquid? This thing is rare, but since mister requests it, our shop will definitely satisfy you. The five light liquid of this quality is rare, so the price…” The shopkeeper in a gray robe replied with a smile after hearing the words.
“The price can be discussed as long as you really have this item.” Liu Ming was overjoyed when he heard this.
“That’s good! Please wait for a moment. I’ll let the buddy deliver the things.” The shopkeeper in a gray robe was full of smiles.
Then he took out a white blank note from his sleeve and drew a few strokes on the note with his fingers. A flame suddenly rose, burning the white note into a wisp of green smoke.
“Please wait a while, Mr. Ouyang.” After finishing all this, the shopkeeper in a gray robe said.
After about 15 minutes, the staff whom he met downstairs walked in. After bowing to the shopkeeper, he waved his sleeve, and 5 silver bottles were aligned on the table.
“Mister can check if it fits your requirement?” The shopkeeper in a gray robe said with a smile at Liu Ming.
“Then I’ll take a look.” After Liu Ming nodded, he immediately waved 1 hand to take 1 bottle into his hand.
Liu Ming opened the lid and looked inside.
An orange transparent liquid could be seen in the bottle. The liquid was densely covered with tiny holes, and it emitted bursts of fragrant spirit.
The yun spirit honey of upper grade was really extraordinary.
After 10 minutes, Liu Ming reclosed the lid of the last bottle of the five light liquid and gently put it back to the table before asking,
“These 5 bottles of spiritual fluids are indeed of good quality; they are already upper grade. How many spirit stones do they cost?
“Each bottle is 650,000, if you buy all, then I can sell you at 3 million.” The shopkeeper smiled slightly and said with confidence.
Liu Ming was slightly surprised by the price.
After all, the 2 bottles of ordinary five light liquid he bought earlier were only 300,000, and this upper grade actually cost 600,000 per bottle. The difference was so huge that it was far beyond his expectation.
“Well, since mister said so, I won’t bargain with you. 3 million it is.” After only a few moments, Liu Ming said calmly.
Afterward, he took out a big bag of spirit stones from the Sumeru Snail.
“Hehe, Daoist Ouyang is really a forthright person. If you need something again, just come to our shop.” The shopkeeper in a gray robe grabbed the leather bag, scanned it with Divine Thought and said with a smile.
“Will do. Thanks to your shop this time, otherwise, I don’t know how long it takes for me to find these spiritual fluids. It’s getting late, and I still have some other matters, so I will leave now.”
Liu Ming also the 5 silver bottles into the Sumeru Ring. After a few polite words, he stood up and cupped his fist to the shopkeeper while bidding farewell.
Next, he walked out of the Heavenly Treasure House under the escort of the shopkeeper.
As soon as Liu Ming flew out of the area of the River Moon City, he immediately released the Daiyue Jade Boat and flew toward the teleportation array.
Along the way, he also carefully transformed into a different person and deliberately avoided other cultivators.
In this way, 2 months later, he returned to his cave house in the Taiqing Sect.
At this time, it was only a few months before the absorption of the mysterious bubbles. After some setbacks, he finally prepared several copies of materials for the yun spirit pill.
In the following time, Liu Ming rejected all visitors and stayed alone in the secret room to cultivate. From time to time, he observed the situation of the hourglass on the Celestial Tablet in the sea of consciousness.
One day after a month later, when the sand in the Celestial Tablet fell, the sea of consciousness suddenly surged violently. Crystal bubbles appeared in the Spiritual Sea after a flash.
“It’s going to start!”
After Liu Ming whispered to himself, he immediately released a trace of mental power and gently touched it.
The mysterious bubbles burst suddenly, and a huge draining force gushed out of it.
Liu Ming only felt the blood was boiling in his body; black gas was surging out of his body; the spiritual power in the body was continuously released from the 153 crystals. Like a whirlpool, it surged toward the mysterious bubbles in the sea of consciousness.
With the rapid depletion of spiritual power in his body, his face gradually turned from rosy to a little pale. The black gas that originally released from his body surface also gradually went back into his body, slowly becoming thinner.
At this moment, Liu Ming’s face showed a hint of joy. After all, he had been preparing for this for a long time.
He swept the Sumeru Ring with Divine Thought. After reconfirming that everything was ready, he patted the soul-recovering bag on his waist, and 2 black gas rolled out, revealing Demon Flying Skull and Bone Scorpion.
Before Liu Ming commanded, the 2 spiritual pets seemed to understand the situation. Demon Flying Skull wrapped Liu Ming’s arm tightly with its hair while Bone Scorpion flew directly to his shoulder, gripping Liu Ming’s shirt tightly with its pincers.
This time, the absorption time of the mysterious bubbles seemed to be much longer than before. When the spiritual power in Liu Ming’s body was almost emptied out, the drain of the bubbles stopped abruptly.
Liu Ming breathed a sigh of relief, but before he had time to check the Spiritual Sea in his body, he felt a soft “buzz” in his ears. The scene in front of him became blurred.
When he saw the scene ahead again, he was already in the gray space.
The mysterious space at this time was several times larger than when I entered it last time, which is obviously related to the large amount of spiritual power drawn this time.
In the open space more than a hundred feet away from him, Luo Hu was sitting cross-legged with his eyes closed. He didn’t open his eyes even after Liu Ming appeared.
“You 2 go and practice on your own.” After Liu Ming glanced at the Demon Flying Skull and Bone Crab around him, he commanded in a low tone.
Demon Flying Skull and Bone Scorpion replied in unison. After turning blurred, they appeared in front of an air wall in the distance. Demon Flying Skull released dense green hair at the air wall.
Bone Scorpion rubbed Liu Ming’s shoulder with the giant pincers, then jumped down. After its spirit patterns flashed, it blasted toward another air wall.
After watching the 2 leave, Liu Ming slowly walked in front of Luo Hu. He said respectfully,
“Senior Luo Hu.”
Luo Hu just nodded at him, but he still did not open his eyes and did not speak.
Liu Ming knew that Luo Hu was here just to help him practice Heavenly Thunder Spell, so he didn’t say much. He walked to an empty space by himself, sat cross-legged and meditated.
If nothing goes wrong, he will stay in the mysterious space for 16 years this time. The most important thing at the moment was to be familiar with refining the yun spirit pill.
After pondering for a while, he took out a small green cauldron. It was the “Liushen Cauldron” he got in the Green Sky Illusory Palace a few years ago.
This time he only has 1 recipe to practice though. Will 1 type of pill be enough to replenish his spiritual power? But he has a new spell to learn this time which will allow him to fully utilize the time in the mysterious space.
