A quarter of an hour later, at the altar of the Thunder Pool Mountain.
The muscular man in a purple robe, Lie Zhentian, and the muscular man with a black face, Zong Yan, were standing side by side in front of the altar at the moment. Below them were more than 10 Beastkin Clan cultivators that were divided into 2 rows under the altar. Those wearing long purple robes were the disciples of Thunder Beastkin Faction; those wearing black robes were the disciples of the muscular man with a black face.
These beastkin clan cultivators were all above the Real Pellet State; they were the best of the best among the younger generations of the 2 clans.
“I won’t say much about the Sky Beastkin Trial. You all the best candidates who have high qualifications from me and Mr. Zong’s disciple. The trial will start soon. Later, me and Mr. Zong will join forces to open the channel to the secret realm. In the secret realm, we have prepared enough sacrifices of the other clans. When you entered the secret realm, you can kill these sacrifices and use the mystic art we taught to absorb their soul power. It will strengthen you and prepare you for the Sky Beastkin’s inheritance. However, only 1 person is allowed to enter the Heart Holy Altar of the secret realm. I think I don’t need to tell you what it means. We Beastkin honor the strong. Only the last winner is eligible to get the Sky Beastkin’s inheritance after getting all the tokens from the disciples!” The muscular man in a purple robe announced coldly.
The disciples all looked solemn hearing this.
Although it was common for the strong to prey on the weak, this was different. Not only the last winner would have strengthened power, but he would also get the Sky Beastkin title. Not to mention advancing to the Celestial State, even advancing to the Mystic Comprehending was very possible.
For this opportunity, even if they knew that participating in this trial would have a great chance of dying, none of the candidates were willing to quit.
These Real Pellet State beastkin cultivators had already been measuring the strength of their opponents.
“After the path is opened, you all will enter every 5 seconds 1 by 1. As for the result, it depends on your own destiny.” The muscular man with a black face glanced down and landed in front of a thin young man at the front of the team.
At the same time, the eyes of the muscular man in a purple robe also looked at the person at the front on his side. It was a bald muscular man.
The candidates were all above the Real Pellet State early stage, but the aura of these 2 people was outstanding among the others. They were clearly at the Real Pellet State intermediate stage, and they were also the most likely disciples to stay until the end.
After Lie Zhentian and Zong Yan looked at each other tacitly, the 2 of them immediately flickered and appeared on the altar.
They immediately chanted and made strange gestures.
Not long after, the altar below suddenly shined brightly. When they both raised 1 of their hands, a giant hand was condensed on both sides in the air, and they pulled at the same time with a tacit understanding.
A burst of thunder sounded!
An entrance was opened up above the altar.
In the next moment, among the disciples in purple robes, the bald muscular man immediately flew into the entrance and disappeared.
After 5 seconds, the thin man in front of the black-robed disciples flashed into the secret realm.
At the foot of the mountain somewhere in the secret realm, the sky was blue with a few snow-white clouds drifting. Looking around, it was surrounded by mountains in the distance. This place was flourished with plants. It was simply a paradise of another world.
Liu Ming, in a gray robe, was standing in the shade of a tree at the moment.
Ever since he was thrown into the secret realm by Thunder Beastkin, he found that no one was here after being teleported. Wu Kui, Hua Qingying and others were teleported to other places in the secret realm.
Although he didn’t know Thunder Beastkin’s intention to throw them here, it obviously wouldn’t be a good thing. The most urgent matter was to find a way to get out of this secret realm.
Thinking of this, he made a gesture and flew into the sky.
He didn’t fly very fast. Although it looked peaceful here, it might also contain an unknown crisis.
At the same time, Hua Qingying and the woman in a cloak were surrounded by 5 tall cultivators wearing colorful clothes on a rocky ground with yellow sand in the secret realm.
The skins of these people are a little weird; their clothes were embroidered with patterns of poisonous insects such as scorpion and centipede.
“Several fellows should be from the Five Poison Sects of the southern wilderness right? Why are you guys surrounding us?” Hua Qingying asked stiffly, and her words were full of scruples.
The cloaked woman next to her was also pale, but her hands were faintly tucked in her sleeves.
Although they originally belonged to the Wolf League, they didn’t have much friendship with each other. However, in the current situation, they could only cooperate to save their lives.
“Hehe, it really is a newcomer who doesn’t know anything. You must have just been thrown in by Thunder Beastkin, right? Since you are here, don’t think about going out. I tell you, we have been staying here for nearly 10 years…” 1 of the middle-aged man with a chubby figure said with a sneer.
“Why do we talk so much? Let’s kill them and loot all their spirit stones and treasures so that we can live longer!” A tall man with a yellow face suddenly interrupted the chubby man.
When the other people heard the words, they flicked their sleeves and attacked with different weapons at Hua Qingying and the woman in a cloak.
Hua Qingying’s face turned pale. The elders of the Five Poison Sects were all above the Real Pellet State. The man with a yellow face was already close to the intermediate stage. Regardless of number or strength, they had an absolute advantage.
But they wouldn’t be willing to accept their death.
Hua Qingying let out a scream, taking out a six-sided ancient mirror. As she made a gesture, the ancient mirror became 100 meters huge and blocked in front of them.
The attacks hit on the ancient mirror, then they were all reflected.
The woman in the cloak also gritted her teeth and spat out a pair of silver hooks. She crossed her hands and blocked the other 3 lights.
Hua Qingying was slightly relieved seeing this. While defending with this six-sided ancient mirror, she channeled her spiritual power and summoned a white flag. With a wave, it cast a white cloud that protected them.
Although the Five Poison Sect’s cultivators were more in number and their attacks were frequent, they couldn’t immediately breach the full defenses of 2 Real Pellet State cultivators.
Seeing this, the man with a yellow face, who hadn’t made a move, showed a weird smile. He lightly flicked his hands in his sleeves.
In the next moment, dense black lines burst out from the ground under them and pierced through the white cloud instantly.
The 2 women reacted quickly with a jump, but the other Real Pellet State cultivators around them made a joint attack at the same time.
An earth shaking noise!
Although the 2 women barely defended the attack with the defensive power of the silver hooks and the ancient mirror, their figures shook and stagnated in midair.
With this moment of delay, the black lines in the ground pierced through the lower legs of the 2 women.
They screamed before falling to the ground again. There was a row of fine blood holes on their lower legs. The blood that flowed out was also pitch black, and there was a faint slender black gas that spread along the skin to the whole body.
In the frightened eyes of the 2 women, there were 2 shiny black scorpions crawling out silently from below. There was a hint of green light on their tail hooks.
Hua Qingying’s face suddenly turned pale as paper. She hurriedly took out a medicine bottle and desperately poured all the elixir into her mouth.
The woman in the cloak next to her also made the same move in fright.
“Hehe, want to cure the Five Saint Poison with detoxification pills? You are simply dreaming. Our brothers will take your life now.” The man with a yellow face laughed wildly after seeing this.
He waved with 1 hand, and a 10 meters yellow light blade was launched on the white cloud that was protecting the 2 women. After that, he patted his waist again, and 2 black light were launched, quickly smashing the white cloud.
As the women were poisoned, although they could still clearly see the trajectories of attack, they were helpless as they used most of their spiritual power to suppress the poison.
Seeing this situation, several other people rushed up with joy and channeled their spiritual weapons to burst out a series of attacks. The six-sided ancient mirror without the supply of spiritual power lost the ability to defend.
After Hua Qingying and the woman in the cloak looked at each other, they couldn’t help showing a look of despair.
The next moment, a burst of colorful cold lights overwhelmed Hua Qingying and the woman in a cloak.
Liu Ming had been flying in the secret realm for more than an hour. The scenery of the rocky mountainous area had changed into a calm lake.
This secret realm seemed to abnormally huge. After flying for so long, he didn’t seem to reach the end. The lake below was at least thousands of miles in size. He couldn’t see the entire lake at a glance.
The water of the lake was extremely clear, but the depth was gloomy. With his current eyesight, he couldn’t see through it at all.
The lake surface suddenly stirred up a wave of ripples, and a blue ice arrow suddenly emerged from the center of the ripple. It went directly toward the black cloud in the sky.
Light blue ripples appeared in the air where the whistling sound passed.
Liu Ming was originally worried that flying too high would be too noticeable, but he didn’t expect that the sneak attack would come from below.
However, he reacted extremely quickly. The black light on his body condensed, and his speed suddenly accelerated a bit to dodge the ice arrow. But the next moment, ‘bang’, he felt a strange chill on his back.
Liu Ming frowned. His figure flicked, and he appeared 80 meters away, then he turned around expressionlessly.
The ice arrow had exploded, shrouding the radius of dozen meters around.
“Who is sneaking in the deep water? Why not come out and fight openly?” Liu Ming’s cold voice came from the giant ape mask.
TL: So if Liu Ming survives until the end, can he get the inheritance instead?
