“The deepest underworld, the Serene Clan! Senior, do the deepest underworld really exist?”
After Liu Ming listened, he took a breath. He never expected the Hell Bone Secret would have such an origin.
“Of course it exists. This realm may be very ethereal in the eyes of ordinary cultivators, but for people at my level, it does exist. I had even been to that realm before, so I know the origin of this Hell Bone Secret… It’s a pity that I cultivated in puppet technique, so I didn’t care too much about this physical strengthening technique and didn’t deliberately look for it.” The puppet girl said lightly.
After Liu Ming listened, his expression changed for a while. He was obviously thinking about the conditions the girl had offered.
The conditions offered by the girl were indeed good, whether it was to send him out or the first 10 levels of the Hell Bone Secret, it was almost impossible for him to refuse.
Although it was dangerous to destroy the spiritual puppet avatar, if he dared to refuse, the girl would probably turn on him directly.
In this way, he had no other choice at all.
“Okay, since senior is so sincere, junior will do what I can. I just hope that senior will keep your promises.” After Liu Ming made up his mind, he took a deep breath and finally agreed.
“Hehe, who am I? I won’t renege my words. Don’t worry, if you do what I said.”
Seeing that Liu Ming agreed, the girl also looked happy.
Although she was only a puppet, her expression was lifelike. It didn’t look awkward at all. It was worthy of the puppet that was forged by a Mystic Comprehending State powerhouse.
“By the way, I have disconnected to the outside world for too long, so I urgently need some spirit stones. Do you have them with you?”
“Junior…” Liu Ming was startled. Just as he was just about to speak, the storage bracelet in his hand trembled and flew straight at the girl. However, he could only see that happened helplessly.
This was clearly robbing him; she didn’t have the demeanor as a senior powerhouse at all.
The girl turned a blind eye to Liu Ming’s ugly face, and she unlocked the enchantment on the Sumeru Ring with a gentle stroke. The items in it all dropped to the ground.
Among them, there were not only various spiritual weapons and talismans, but also various alchemy forging materials and a pile of crystal clear spirit stones, all of which were all the wealth that Liu Ming meticulously accumulated over the years.
When the girl saw the spirit stones, her eyes were flickering. A smile appeared on her face. She waved a took all the spirit stones.
Seeing this, Liu Ming’s heart twitched!
He took a lot of effort and time in earning these spirit stones. Together with the loots he got in the Thunder Beastkin’s secret realm, there were tens of thousands of them. Now the girl just took them all like that!
After the girl took away the spirit stone, her gaze swept across the ground at will, her face suddenly changed with a faint sound.
Without seeing how she moved, the ore materials on the ground were suddenly pushed aside by an invisible force, revealing one of the withered corpses hidden inside.
It is the demon corpse!
“You kid is lucky. You actually got the Celestial State cultivator’s corpse, and it is still intact. No, this aura… is actually a demon corpse. Tsk tsk, good, good! Celestial State’s demon corpse is even rarer. But this thing is just wasted in your hand. I can do you a favor to dispose of it. “The girl looked at the demon corpse carefully, and she looked delighted. She released a white light to take away the demon corpse, and it disappeared out of thin air.
After Liu Ming heard this, although he only smiled bitterly on his face, he couldn’t help but curse the girl’s ancestors.
He originally wanted to use sacrificial refine this demon corpse himself, but he didn’t have enough cultivation and a suitable technique for it. So, he left it aside. He didn’t expect to be snatched away blatantly by her.
The girl seemed to be in a good mood after getting the demon corpse, then she looked at the pile of items again.
Liu Ming was shocked once again for fear that this blackhearted ‘mighty cultivator’ snatched any of his items.
Fortunately, this time, the girl was not interested in anything. Instead, she lowered her head and glanced at the yellow turban talisman in her hand, then she said in a chuckle,
“Don’t worry, since I take so many things from you, I will offer you something in return. Although you have this yellow turban talisman, you are simply wasting it to use it as an ordinary soldier talisman. I have an ancient book that recorded the way to sacrificial refine the yellow turban soldier. I got this from a forbidden place somewhere. Although it is incomplete, it is still a rare treasure. It is more than enough to exchange your spirit stones and this demon corpse.”
After the girl finished speaking, she took out an inconspicuous black book, and she threw it over with the talisman and storage bracelet in her hand.
“Thank you senior for the reward!” Liu Ming could only verbally thank her. He quickly kept all the things inside the storage bracelet.
As for the ancient talisman book, he kept it without looking.
“By the way, you don’t have to worry about the things of those Sand Clan people. Since they are descendants of my subordinates, they have been respectful to me over the years. After I get rid of the spiritual puppet avatar, I will naturally help them.” The girl looked at Liu Ming and suddenly thought of something.
As soon as she finished the sentence, she chanted a few mysterious spells and launched a symbol somewhere in the hall.
At the same time, outside the palace.
After Liu Ming entered the hall, Sha Chuer found a hidden place nearby to hide.
At this moment, she was frowning anxiously while looking at the palace.
Liu Ming went in for almost half a day, but there was no movement. Although she was anxious, there was nothing she could do.
“Could it be that something bad happened to Brother Liu?” Sha Chuer gradually became a little uneasy, but due to Sand Clan’s oath, she could not rush in.
While she was waiting anxiously, suddenly a heavy footstep came from inside the main hall gate.
Not long after, a golden puppet with a height of 100 meters suddenly appeared at the door, and it rushed toward the place where she was hiding.
The golden puppet was extremely fast. It had approached the building that Sha Chuer was hiding within a few seconds. It leaped over the building and appeared before Sha Chuer.
Sha Chuer immediately leaped back for a hundred meters in shock. She faced this human-shaped puppet cautiously.
But the golden puppet appeared in front of the girl with just a blur.
Sha Chuer was shocked. The sand blade in her hand was launched a black light.
The golden puppet crushed the black light easily with its arm, then it hit Sha Chuer’s neck to knock her down.
After the golden puppet flickered, it sprinted toward the palace door with Sha Chuer in its embrace.
In the hall.
The girl was talking to Liu Ming at the moment, as if she was explaining something.
“This is the palace map, I have marked the route. This spirit shattering dagger, take it with you. The spiritual puppet has an extremely hard shell. Only this magic weapon spirit shattering dagger can barely break its core. Remember this.” As the girl said, she threw 2 things at Liu Ming, and she asked him to remember a route to help him find the spiritual puppet.
The almost transparent dagger was shining nonstop, exuding bursts of strange cold air.
With a movement in his heart, he swept with the spirit shattering dagger slightly. A burst of whistling sound came out in a flash of cold light. The surrounding air was also buzzing because of it.
He had not injected any spiritual power, and this dagger had such a power. It should be the legendary real magic weapon!
Liu Ming couldn’t help but be surprised and happy.
“Okay, don’t waste the time. Remember the route and go now. Remember, you only have 3 hours.” The girl turned a blind eye to Liu Ming’s action; she only advised Liu Ming a few more words.
Liu Ming naturally nodded again and again.
The girl patted the armrest on the side of the coral seat with her right hand, then she made a gesture with both hands.
Under Liu Ming, a giant array was being activated.
Liu Ming only felt that the surrounding scenery was blurred, then he appeared in a long corridor with a flash.
The corridor was quite wide and deep. There were many ancient stone sculptures that seemed to be carved by the Southern Puppet Emperor herself.
Liu Ming shook his head to calm his mind. He took out a silver jade slip and put it on his forehead, then he strode forward.
Although the entire palace didn’t look huge on the outside, the corridor that led to the spiritual puppet was much farther than Liu Ming imagined.
After making a few turns for a dozen minutes, he went into another pitch black long corridor.
Seeing this, Liu Ming immediately took out a white moonstone from Sumeru Ring. After injecting a little spiritual power, a white halo was emanated from the stone.
He threw the moonstone into the air, illuminating the entire long corridor with a faint white light.
As a result, a scene that shocked him appeared!
At a glance, there were different kinds of puppets standing on both sides motionlessly.
“She is really worthy of the name Southern Puppet Emperor, there are so many puppets!” Liu Ming’s eyes flashed with astonishment. He took a quick glance at these puppets while moving forward cautiously.
Not far away, a human-shaped puppet in silver armor held a white blade in its hand. 27 layers of enchantment could be vaguely seen on the blade.
On the other side, 2 giant bronze puppets that the great elder controlled were also standing aside.
There were hundreds of other puppets on both sides of the corridor.
Among them, the green stone bird puppet, the giant wolf puppet and the soldier puppet, Liu Ming had seen them outside the palace before. Each of them had the strength of the Condensation Period and even the Crystallization Period.
Given that his current cultivation was suppressed, it should be more than enough to deal with some of them, but if hundreds of puppets attacked him altogether, he could only escape.
TL: Did the spiritual puppet avatar notice the girl’s plan, so it held Sha Chuer as hostage?
