“Boy, are you really a disciple of Taiqing Sect? And this soldier talisman, where did you get it? It is actually the yellow turban soldier talisman that has long been lost.” Just when Liu Ming was uncertain, the girl sitting in the chair spoke lightly again. She was holding the broken talisman that had been restored.
The golden armor soldier returned to its original form at the moment it was teleported to this space.
Liu Ming’s spiritual power was restricted and was held tight by the golden puppet, so he didn’t dare to act rashly. He could only reply with a sigh in his mind,
“Senior is wise, junior is indeed Taiqing Sect’s disciple. I also obtained this talisman by accident.
“Oh? Did the old men of the Thousands Spirit Mountain give you the Hell Bone Secret?” The girl asked coldly after hearing the words.
Liu Ming was silent for a moment.
Speaking of the Hell bone Secret, he must mention his origin and Grandmaster Liuyin’s affairs. However, when he saw the girl’s expressionless face, he had an inexplicably chill that his thought was seen through by her. He could only reply vaguely,
“Junior is born on a small island far away from the Middle Sky Continent. I came to this Middle Sky Continent by coincidence, and I joined the Taiqing Sect later. I learned this Hell bone Secret when I was on the island. “
“Small island? This is a bit interesting. As far as I know, there are not many people who know this Hell Bone Secret even in the entire Middle Sky Continent.” After the girl listened, she muttered to herself.
“I don’t dare to lie in front of senior. Junior came to the Middle Sky Continent because I encountered the space fissure.” Liu Ming explained.
“Space fissure… No wonder. Forget it, these things don’t matter. I ask you. Does Nature Work Sect still exist in the Middle Sky Continent?” After the girl murmured a few words, a stern look suddenly flashed in her eyes. When speaking of the 3 words “Nature Work Sect”, her voice became a bit cold.
“Nature Work Sect still exists. It is currently 1 of the 4 ancient sects of the Middle Sky Continent.” Liu Ming replied slightly, but all kinds of thoughts in his mind turned quickly.
“4 ancient sects, it seems that those old guys still haven’t died.” After the girl sneered, her eyes flashed as she muttered.
Seeing this, Liu Ming didn’t dare to speak, so he waited helplessly.
“Since you can reach here, you must be able to guess my origin. I’m the owner of this place, the Southern Puppet Emperor in your words.” After a long while, the girl looked at Liu Ming again said without expression.
Although Liu Ming had faintly guessed before, after listening to the girl personally say it, his face still changed drastically. He opened his mouth slightly, but he didn’t say anything in the end.
According to the rumors, the Southern Puppet Emperor, a powerful person, had been dead for tens of thousands of years, and no one had said that he was a girl.
Therefore, he would not easily believe what a girl said.
The girl seemed to be able to see through what Liu Ming was thinking, and she said coldly,
“My true body was destroyed by a powerful enemy tens of thousands of years ago, so I had to attach a strand of soul to the puppet. When I faced my enemies in my early years, I hid in the puppet all the time, so only a few people had seen my true face. Some even thought I’m a man and named me Puppet Emperor, really funny! When I battled with my nemesis, not only my puppet guards were all destroyed, but my main soul was also going to be killed on the spot. If I didn’t leave a fail safe in this space treasure, I’m afraid I would have really disappeared from this world.”
Liu Ming’s mouth twitched; he was completely speechless.
The girl snorted and continued,
“But if you say that I’m another brand new person, that’s not wrong. After all, sub-soul is still a sub-soul. It is still different from the Puppet Emperor’s main soul. You must have heard from the Sand Clan people that this Odd Desert is a space treasure that I forged.”
“Yes, I did hear the Sand Clan’s great elder mentioned it before, and I came here this time to find the core component of the giant bronze puppet for the people of Sand Clan to resist the invasion of some sand beasts here, so they can help me to leave this place. I didn’t intend to interrupt senior.” Liu Ming thought for a moment before saying respectfully.
“Oh, these Sand Clan people can be regarded as my subordinates. There were Celestial State powerhouses among them at the beginning, but I didn’t expect them to become so weak now. You don’t have to be so scared. I don’t intend to pursue your intrusion. You can get here because I specially arranged it. Otherwise, do you really think it would be so easy to set foot here? The other 2 the Celestial State guys who entered this place back and forth are still being trapped by me on the edge of the desert. “The girl’s tone voice became softer.
“There are 2 Celestial States!”
Liu Ming was really stunned by this.
“One of them may be Thunder Beastkin, but who is the other?”
Before he thought this through, the girl continued.
“When my true body died and the sub-soul returned to this space treasure, there were some accidents, so I have been trapped in this puppet. For some reason, I can’t leave this palace for half a step.”
“I once created a puppet avatar with spirituality. It was originally arranged to guard the ruins here, but when my true body was dead, the spiritual puppet had the thought of rebelling. It even got rid of the enchantment I set initially and controlled almost half of the enchantments in these ruins. For thousands of years, this traitor has been fighting with me in this place. Even the powerful puppet that I left here were all used up.”
At this point, the girl’s expression suddenly became tyrannical. A faint green aura appeared on her forehead.
Hearing this, Liu Ming seemed to realize something, and his face couldn’t help but change slightly.
“During these long years, I keep bringing in the cultivators from outside, but all of them were useless. They either died in the desert or in the hands of the puppet guard controlled by the traitor because their cultivation is restricted.”
“But after so many years, I finally found a useful boy. I think you were quite clever when dealing with the puppets with the Sand Clan little girl just now. You are only at the Crystallization Period and your cultivation is greatly suppressed, but you can still exert the strength comparable to the Real Pellet State. Except for the reason that you aren’t here for a long time, your initial strength should be quite good.” As the girl spoke of this, she looked eased…
“Yes, junior has only been here for a few months, so my cultivation has not completely regressed yet.” Liu Ming had an ominous feeling being stared at by the girl. He could say humbly.
“Okay, I have said so much, and I think you should have already understood it. I looked for you to help me deal with another puppet avatar so that I can truly control this palace and this space treasure. “The girl stared at Liu Ming and said, then she waved her hand suddenly,
The golden puppet behind Liu Ming immediately let go of his shoulders and took a step back.
Liu Ming immediately regained his mobility. After standing upright, he rubbed his shoulders, glanced at the golden puppet, and couldn’t help but reply in a smile,
“Senior has looked highly of me. I’m just a Crystallization Period cultivator. Since that spiritual puppet avatar can fight against senior, not to mention its own strength, the puppets under its control are definitely not little.”
“If you fight it head-on, you are indeed not its n opponent. But I’m the master of this place, even if I’m just a sub-soul, I still have some control over this palace. I have a way to deactivate all the enchantment and puppets of this entire palace for several hours. You only need to find and destroy the spiritual puppet avatar during this period.” The girl said with confidence.
Having said that, the girl seemed to think of something else, then she smiled and said,
“You just told me that you are here to find the core components of the bronze puppet for the Sand Clan, and then they will help you get out of here. But as far as I know, their method is extremely dangerous. The chance of success is less than 20%. But if you finish this task for me, without their help, I will send you out of the Odd Desert.”
Liu Ming’s heart throbbed when he heard this, and his face became uncertain for a while.
He knew very well that even though this girl said so easily, it was absolutely impossible for things to be so simple.
Not to mention whether the girl who claimed to be the Southern Puppet Emperor’s sub-soul was telling the truth, but to say that there was no danger, he would never believe in it.
But at this moment, his life was in the girl’s hands, so he had no other choice. He could only try to get more benefits for himself.
As Liu Ming kept thinking about it, the girl’s clear voice came again,
“I ask you to do things for me, so I naturally won’t treat you badly. I see that your Hell Bone Secret is still shallow and rather crude. Do you know the origin of this Hell Bone Secret?”
“I’m ready to listen to senior’s advice!” Liu Ming was moved, and he quickly cupped his fist and bowed.
He had been obsessed with the Hell Bone Secret’s effect of strengthening the body, but it was unfortunate that Master’s Ruan only gave him the first 4 levels.
Seeing this, the girl seemed to smile, but she said calmly,
“In fact, this technique is cultivated by the Serene Clan of the deepest underworld. The complete technique has a total of 18 levels, and it can be practiced until the Mystic Comprehending State. I accidentally got the first 10 levels after killing a powerful opponent back then. If you complete this task, I can give this book to you. As for the later levels, you will have to figure it out yourself.”
TL: Is that really easy? What if the sub-soul is the one who rebelled?
