Liu Ming took a rest for 2 days before leaving the courtyard again.
After this period of retreat, besides the five light liquid, there weren’t much alchemy materials left on him. He urgently needed to buy them.
After half an hour, outside of Miaozhong Market, a black cloud flew out.
Over the years, Liu Ming went out to sell yun spirit pill several times, although he was looking for some small shops, sometimes he also directly dealth with some foreign Crystallization Period cultivators.
Although he had been very cautious, he still attracted the attention of some forces after a long time.
Therefore, he tried his best not to appear in the same place multiple times, and the location he chose to sell the elixirs became farther and farther away.
1 month later, in a small market more than tens of millions of miles west of Pig Dragon Mountain, in the 2nd floor of a grocery shop, Liu Ming, who had disguised into a sick-looking middle-aged man, was sitting face to face with an old man with a black face.
On the 1st floor of the grocery shop, people came and went; it was very noisy. However, it was quiet in the private room.
The old man reached out to take a square jade box in Liu Ming’s hand and opened the lid carefully.
There were neatly arranged crystal clear elixirs in it.
Seeing this, his withered old face suddenly showed a hint of surprise. He quickly checked it carefully. After a while, he closed the lid.
“The quality of this yun spirit pill is not bad, I won’t bargain much. Here are 32 elixirs, so I offer 13 million spirit stones.”
Liu Ming remained silent for a while. All these were just ordinary elixirs, so the price was reasonable. He of course nodded in agreement.
“Sir is really a refreshing person.” The old man with a black face chuckled, then he immediately handed a storage talisman full of spirit stones to Liu Ming.
After checking, Liu Ming immediately cupped his fist, turned and walked outside.
“If you still have this elixir, you can consider selling it to our shop first. The price can still be discussed.” The old man with a black face’s eager voice came from behind.
“I will consider it next time.” After Liu Ming responded casually, he walked downstairs and went into the crowd of the market.
After Liu Ming left, the old man with a black face’s eager expression slowly faded, and it turned into a sneer. He kept the jade box and walked quickly into the shop.
At the same time, 2 men in black emerged from nowhere and quickly chased into the crowd outside the market, following Liu Ming’s figure far away.
The old man with a black face came to an inconspicuous green stone building in the market after leaving the shop.
“What? You found the mysterious person who sold the yun spirit pill?” A somewhat old voice came from a room.
The speaker was a fat man with only a few long hairs left on his head. He was leaning back on a large seat, and the pair of goldfish-like eyes looked shocked.
In front of him, Li Huang in a blue robe stood there.
The fat old man took out a yun spirit pill from the jade box.
“It really is a very high-quality elixir. Although there is no flawless grade, it is still very beneficial for the Crystallization Period later stage cultivator. My efforts for many is not in vain.” The fat old man sneered.
The old man with a black face bowed and stood aside respectfully, but he did not speak.
“Father, I sent you a letter a few years ago that there seems to be an alchemy master in the nearby market. Do these elixirs come from the same person?” Li Huang said.
“Very like. Alchemy master is rare, so there won’t be 2 of them.” The fat old man put the elixir back into the jade box and kept it with satisfaction.
“In this way, the person who killed the Hei Wu may also be related to this alchemy master.” Li Huang said with a cold gaze.
Liu Ming bought a lot of five light liquid at auctions and it was the main material of the yun spirit pill, so it was easy to associate the 2 together.
“I remember you once mentioned this to me. It doesn’t matter, when we catch that person, everything will become clear.” The fat old man said and slowly stood up.
“Have you arranged someone to follow?” The fat old man moved his muscles and turned his head to ask.
“Yes, old master, it is Hei Jiu and Hei Shi.” The old man with a black face hurriedly replied.
“En, they are proficient in tracking; that person can’t escape.” The fat old man nodded with satisfaction. He flicked his sleeve to launch a green light that wrapped him and Li Huang, then they disappeared without a trace.
At the same time, in an unnamed mountain hundreds of miles away from the market, 2 men in black shuttled through a dark forest.
“Damn it, where did that man go! Old Shi, think of a way.” 1 of the men in black said anxiously.
Another thin man in black still remained quiet while holding a green jade plate in his hand. The tortoise shell-like pattern on it was emitting light ripples around.
Since Liu Ming left the market, they were following him secretly from a far distance.
But he never thought that as soon as Liu Ming flew here, he disappeared into the wood with a flash.
“No way, I can’t trace that person anymore.” Hei Shi stopped the spell and shook his head.
“Even the ‘turtle mirror’ can’t trace? What should we do now? If that person escapes from the underground in this huge mountain forest, we will not be able to find him. If we let him escape, old master will never spare you and me.” A look of horror appeared on Hei Jiu’s face.
“It’s impossible to hide the tortoise mirror with ground escape technique. That person must still be nearby.” Hei Shi also revealed a trace of fear after hearing this.
“Do you think the person we follow isn’t a Crystallization Period cultivator at all? Didn’t your turtle mirror claim that it discover the Divine Thought of all Crystallization Period cultivators? Since that person can find us and he has now hidden silently, will he…” Hei Jiu lowered his head slightly, and his face suddenly turned extremely ugly as he whispered.
“Impossible, if that person is a Real Pellet State powerhouse, he would not act so cautiously. He can kill us casually, there is no need for him to hide.” Hei Shi’s face changed. He swallowed and said with a hesitant voice.
“You 2 are half right and half wrong. I can really kill you at any time, but I want to know your origins, so I wait until now.” At this moment, a faint voice suddenly came from behind them.
Hei Jiu and Hei Shi were horrified, and they turned around quickly. A figure appeared behind them from nowhere. Through the rays of sunlight from the tree leaves, they could faintly recognize the man whom they chased.
“It’s you…” Hei Jiu was shocked, and he quickly retreated.
Liu Ming snorted. As he stretched out his arms, overwhelming black gas rushed out of him in an instant. Hei Jiu and Hei Shi were wrapped in a thick black light.
It was the “Hell Prison”.
After reaching the intermediate stage of the Crystallization Period, the various skills of the Tiger Dragon Hell Prison were naturally greatly improved.
Hei Jiu and Hei Shi lost their sight, then they were trapped in a dark space. They could only see the rolling black mist. They couldn’t see and detect each other with Divine Thought.
Hei Jiu quickly took out a black long blade in his hand.
The black gas in front suddenly rolled over and turned into 2 ferocious ghost figures that pounced at him.
Hei Jiu roared and launched the 10 meters long black blade, easily slashing these 2 ghost creatures in half.
When he saw this, he was full of hope. He immediately shouted,
“Old Shi, don’t panic. This is just an illusion. Although it can block Divine Thought, it doesn’t have much killing power.”
“That’s true, but this illusion seems to have a great influence on Divine Thought…” Hei Shi was actually not far from Hei Jiu. He swung the silver long sword in his hand and easily killed a ghost figure in front, then he replied hurriedly.
“Oh no, Old Shi be careful!” Before Hei Shi finished speaking, he was interrupted by Hei Jiu’s exclamation.
A faint golden light had already appeared behind Hei Shi. It was already too late when they realized it.
There was a soft, inaudible “swoosh!“
The golden light suddenly turned into an icy cold light that cut off Hei Shi’s head with just a circle. The headless corpse then fell from the air…
When the black light dissipated again, Hei Jiu was standing in place holding the black blade; there was a lot of sweat on his forehead.
Less than half an inch away from his forehead, a looming small golden sword was floating there. The seemingly sharp sword tip was trembling slightly as if it could be launched at any time.
“Talk, who are you and who is the old master you mentioned?” Not far from Hei Jiu, a sick-looking middle-aged man in a gray robe asked faintly with his hands behind his back.
Although Hei Jiu was extremely shocked, he couldn’t help showing a trace of hesitation after hearing this question.
At this moment, a cold voice came from the sky,
“Junior, what do you know, why don’t you ask me directly?”
As soon as the voice sounded, a green meteor-like escape light broke through from the distant sky. After a tiger roar, it landed nearby.
The green light faded and revealed Li Huang and a fat old man immediately.
Liu Ming looked at Li Huang, then the fat old man. He squinted abruptly.
“Real Pellet State cultivator!”
TL: Real Pellet State cultivators + 2 helpers, will Liu Ming run away or fight to their death?
