“12 million spirit stones!” Li Huang finally bade at this time. He still glanced at Liu Ming faintly.
The next moment, a faint bidding sound overwhelmed the man in blue’s bidding.
It was not Liu Ming who spoke, but another old man in a black robe who had never spoken in the front row.
Li Huang’s face became fierce as he was about to rage.
“Young Master, that person is the famous Real Pellet State beastkin cultivator Old Man Jin Zhu in the southern wilderness. He is at the same level as master, so it is better not to offend him.” A brawny man behind the man in blue stepped up immediately and said softly in his ear.
Li Huang looked hesitant after hearing that. He snorted and sat down again.
“15 million spirit stones!”
At this moment, Liu Ming started to bid. He immediately raised 2 million spirit stones.
The old man in a black robe had a hooked nose that was obviously disproportionate to his face. At this moment, he frowned slightly. After his face looked uncertain for a while, he didn’t continue to bid.
Even though the superb five light liquid was precious, there was only one bottle. 15 million spirit stone was really too high.
Li Huang did not continue to bid too.
The man with a square face asked twice. Seeing that no one continued to bid, he quickly announced the ownership of the bottle of superb five light liquid.
Seeing this, Liu Ming stood up suddenly.
“Mister, the auction isn’t ending yet. There are still a few items behind, mister might as well…” Lu Yun hesitated and asked.
“No need. My purpose this time is just the five light liquid; I’m interested in other treasures.” Liu Ming said faintly.
Seeing this, Lu Yun didn’t say anything. After nodding, she brought Liu Ming to the side hall of the auction venue.
At the same time, many people have begun to secretly look at Liu Ming, and the man in blue also showed a sneer on his face. He slightly raised 1 hand and secretly made a gesture behind him.
The brawny man behind him knew, turned around, and quickly walked out of the auction venue.
In the side hall, someone had already been waiting for Liu Ming with 20 bottles of upper grade five light liquid and a bottle of superb five light liquid.
After the payment, Liu Ming spent 33.5 million spirit stones for this batch of five light liquids.
After a short inspection, he put the five light liquids into the Sumeru Ring and walked out under the guidance of Lu Yun.
After leaving the auction venue, Liu Ming did not return to his residence, but he walked outside the market.
Just after coming out of the venue, he vaguely felt a faint fluctuation of mental power, following him not far away.
After breaking through the Crystallization Period, Liu Ming’s mental power had also risen sharply. With a move of his mind, an invisible mental fluctuation was released instantly, covering thousands of meters around his body.
Liu Ming sneered slightly. With a ruthless expression, he quickly left the market.
At the entrance of the market, a person quickly walked out of the shadow of a small building. It was the brawny servant of Li Huang.
This person looked back at the direction of the auction venue, and after a trace of hesitation, he quickly followed up.
Half an hour later, Li Huang took a few of his men into a dense forest more than a hundred miles away from the market.
A headless corpse of the brawny cultivator was seen in the middle of the forest. He was kneeling on his knees, but his head rolled aside far away. His eyes were wide open with a trace of horror.
Seeing this, several servants immediately looked shocked, but after a while, they had already calmed down.
They weren’t sad because of the death of their companion. They just wait quietly for Li Huang’s instructions.
But after coming here for a while, Li Huang still didn’t speak.
“Young Master…” A thin and tall lanky man finally walked out.
“You send someone to bring the body of Hei Wu back to the tribe and tell my father about the matter. About what to say, do you still need me to teach you? The rest of the matter will be decided by old man.” Li Huang looked at the headless corpse while giving instruction faintly.
The tall and thin man was slightly startled. He thought that the surly young master would be furious to pursue the murderer desperately, so he couldn’t react to it for a while.
“You don’t need to show this look. Although I’m arrogant, I’m not a fool. There is no trace of fierce fighting around here. Obviously, Hei Wu was killed by that person with 1 blow. Black Friday’s strength has reached the intermediate stage of the Crystallization Period, the strongest among you all. Even I wouldn’t be able to kill him. So, I will let father handle this matter instead.” Li Huang said faintly, then he turned around and retreated.
Several servants looked at each other and hurriedly put away the body of the brawny man, then they quickly followed up.
Miaozhong Market, in a small courtyard.
After Liu Ming beheaded the brawny cultivator who followed him, he went around in a circle and changed his appearance before returning to the market.
He returned to his residence and went straight into the secret room. After activating all the enchantments, he sat cross-legged and took out the five light liquid from the Sumeru Ring.
Liu Ming looked at the bottles with a delightful smile. Although he spent a lot of spirit stones on these spiritual fluids, it was definitely worth the money.
As a result, in the next few years, he didn’t have to worry about five light liquids anymore.
After taking a rest for one night, Liu Ming went out again in disguise the next morning. After purchasing other materials, he returned to the secret room and started another round of refine.
At midnight 3 months later, the entire market was already shrouded in darkness. The noisy central plaza seemed a bit quiet at this time.
In the secret room, Liu Ming was sitting cross-legged in front of the emerald green Liushen Cauldron. While pouring pure spiritual power into the cauldron with both hands, he was staring at the cauldron intently to silently manipulate the heat. He looked extremely solemn.
The bottom of the cauldron was wrapped by fierce flames. Its spirit patterns were flickering. White gas rolled out from the cauldron cover from time to time.
This time, he was refining the yun spirit pill with the superb five light liquid he just got.
As time passed, the white gas that came out from cauldron cover gradually became thinner. At the same time, a faintly cold medicinal fragrance began to spread.
Seeing this, Liu Ming condensed his expression and instantly increased the spiritual power injected.
Suddenly, the spirits in the secret room gathered toward Liushen Cauldron, forming a cyclone above the cauldron.
The next moment, the cauldron cover floated automatically with a humming sound.
The flame below the Liushen Cauldron also extinguished. After a soft humming sound, a white glow suddenly burst out of the cauldron.
The anomaly of pill refining happened unexpectedly!
The enchantments placed by Liu Ming in the house could barely prevent the white light from leaking through the roof, but the abnormal spiritual power fluctuations still clearly spread out.
Liu Ming’s face changed slightly. He waved his sleeve and released a black gas to kept away the Liushen Cauldron.
He took out a yellow talisman and crushed it. A yellow light curtain wrapped around his body and brought him to the underground.
At this time, in a room on the 3rd floor of a seemingly luxurious medicinal shop.
Li Huang was listening to the report of the tall and thin man with a gloomy face.
Suddenly, he seemed to sense some kind of strange fluctuations, and he looked over. A faint golden light appeared in his eyes.
“Young Master, that was…” The tall and thin man seemed to perceive something strange and asked suspiciously.
“It is actually the resonance of heaven and earth. An alchemy master is in this market. This is really unexpected.” Li Huang retracted his gaze and said faintly.
“As far as I know, there is no alchemy master or forging master in this Miaozhong Market. Is it an outsider?” The tall and thin man said.
“There is such a possibility, hehe, there seem to be some undercurrents in this Miaozhong Market recently. Hei Wu was just killed by someone, and another master appeared in a blink of an eye.” Li Huang smiled sensibly.
“Young master thinks that there is a connection between these 2 matters?” The tall and thin man asked again with a puzzled expression on his face.
“What is the purpose of your head? You have to ask me for everything! Hurry up and send someone to investigate this. Also, don’t forget to inform father about the situation here at any time.” Li Huang glared at the tall and thin man and scolded.
The tall and thin man immediately nodded and left.
Less than 10 minutes after Liu Ming escaped, there were many looming figures outside the small courtyard of the inn where he was renting. A few of them had a very powerful aura.
As for the other cultivators in the inn, they also felt the anomaly, walked out, and looked at the courtyard where Liu Ming was just now.
A somewhat solemn and strange atmosphere enveloped this area.
Not far from the inn, a black shadow came from a distance landed silently on a roof.
In the moonlight, a rickety figure with a hooked nose was outlined.
It was the Real Pellet State beastkin cultivator, Old Man Jin Zhu, who showed up at the auction.
At this moment, he was looking in the direction of the inn from a distance.
“The anomaly just now should be caused by pill refining. It’s strange that an alchemy master actually comes to such a small place like Miaozhong Market. Could it be…” Old Man Jin Zhu showed a hint of thoughtfulness.
At the same time, in a remote corner of the Miaozhong Market.
Except for the inn that was still open, other shops around had already closed early.
Suddenly, Liu Ming’s figure slowly walked out of the dark corner of the street, and he walked toward the inn with a steady expression.
This was just another residence he prepared early just in case.
TL: Why did he run away though? I don’t think anyone dares to break into his room forcibly in the Miaozhong Market that ruled by the Green Savage Tribe🤔 Can he leave the Miaozhong Market safely? Will he have to fight against multiple Real Pellet State powerhouses?
