Qing Ling nodded, then she turned her gaze at Thunder Beastkin and Wind Beastkin again and said with grace and power.
“You 2 will serve as my 2 great guardians in the future. As long as you are loyal to me, I will naturally not treat you badly, but if you dare to have ill-intentions, you know what are the consequences!”
The 2 beastkin agreed in a low voice, not daring to have the slightest objection.
“Okay, the trivial matters are over. According to what I said earlier, I will send you out. Remember, I don’t want any news about this place to circulate outside.” Qing Ling said, then the giant puppet closed its palms and pulled away again. Not far away, a giant space fissure appeared in a loud rumbling sound.
“Thank you, Senior Qing Ling for helping me. Junior definitely won’t mention to the others about this place.” Liu Ming hurriedly bowed in joy. When he was about to fly into the space fissure, he suddenly looked down as if he sensed something.
Before the Sand Clan crowd, a delicate white figure was standing by the wind, and a girl was looking at him intently. There was some expectation, some hesitation, and also a trace of sadness in her eyes.
It was Sha Chuer.
Suddenly, a gust of wind blew the white dress of the girl, and the gauze that covered her face slipped down silently.
The peerless face was immediately revealed; it seemed to illuminate the somewhat dim surrounding area.
A trace of trance flashed across Liu Ming’s face, and he couldn’t help but recall the scenes of chatting with this woman on the sand dune outside the oasis.
He sighed slightly in his heart, but he put on a smile and sent a voice message,
“Miss Sha, I will bid farewell for now. We will meet again in the future.”
When Sha Chuer heard the words, her slender figure trembled. As she was about to say something, Qing Ling waved the giant hand, and a golden light brought Liu Ming into the space fissure.
Then the space fissure closed instantly as if it had never appeared before.
The surrounding scene became blurred for a while!
When Liu Ming recovered his senses, he was already standing on a grassland.
He glanced around and couldn’t recognize where he was for a while, but it was certain that he had left Odd Desert.
The reason was that the strange energy that oppressed his cultivation was no longer there, and although the spirit here was thin, it was a hundred times richer than in the Odd Desert.
“I’m out finally.”
Liu Ming breathed a sigh of relief and took out a gray jade slip from the Sumeru Ring.
This was obtained by killing a Real Pellet State cultivator in the Thunder Pool Mountain’s secret realm.
In the jade slip, there was a southern wilderness map centered on several giant mountains such as Pig Dragon Mountain. There were dozens of large and small mountains in the southern wilderness, and each area was recorded in detail.
After a quarter of an hour, Liu Ming finished reading the jade slip.
He immediately flew up for 1000 meters with a black cloud under him. After looking around to compare the nearby terrain, he roughly confirmed his current position.
This should be a secluded grassland in the northwest of Pig Dragon Mountain. It was only tens of thousands of miles away from the Qinggu Market.
After Liu Ming closed his eyes and pondered for a while, he immediately made a gesture and flew in the opposite direction of the Qinggu Market.
After a series of changes in the Thunder Pool Mountain’s secret realm and the Odd Desert, he dared not return to the Qinggu market.
Half a month later, a black light landed near a steep unknown mountain range.
As soon as the black light faded, Liu Ming’s figure was revealed.
Holding the map jade slip in his hand, he looked around with his eyes slightly squinted, and he showed a look of satisfaction.
This place was tens of millions of miles away from the Pig Dragon Mountain, and there were several large mountain ranges in between. It could be said that it was quite different from the Qinggu Market.
Besides, the spirit here was relatively thin. Very few cultivators would come here, so it should be very safe.
Thousands of miles away from the mountain range was a large savage tribe market. Liu Ming came here before to buy materials for the Yun Spirit Pill. He knew that its scale was no less than that of the Qinggu Market.
“It’s here then.” Liu Ming put the jade slip away, flew to a hidden place in a dense forest on the mountainside, released the Void Flying Sword, and started to dig a cave.
With his current cultivation, it was no effort to dig out a cave house.
After just half a day, he dug up several stone chambers of tens of meters in size, then he cut and polished a few stones into a stone bed and several stone benches.
Immediately afterward, he took out several sets of array equipment, and he covered half of the mountain and his cave house with the array equipment.
The entrance of the cave house was blocked by a huge rock, leaving only a narrow tunnel for 1 person to enter and exit.
The top of the cave house was covered with leaves. If one didn’t search carefully with Divine Thought, he would never find here.
After Liu Ming finished all of this, he sat down on the stone bed with confidence.
He knew very well that this time Thunder Beastkin and Iron Beastkin made such a big mess in the southern wilderness. They not only captured a large number of Real Pellet State cultivators of all races, but also Venerable Kui Mu and other Sky Beastkin Valley powerhouses were also forcibly imprisoned. Now Thunder Beastkin along with Wind Beastkin were subdued by the Southern Puppet Emperor, but it wouldn’t remain secret for long.
This incident not only involved the Sky Beastkin Valley, but also the return of the Southern Puppet Emperor. There would be real chaos in the southern wilderness in the near future.
But none of this had anything to do with him, as long as he hid it carefully, it shouldn’t be difficult to stay out of the trouble.
Liu Ming originally planned to refine a batch of yun spirit pill before returning to the Thousands Spirit Mountain, but now he had changed his mind.
The more chaotic the southern wilderness, the fewer people would notice a Crystallization Period cultivator and the easier it was to collect alchemy materials.
As Liu Ming thought so, he dropped a bunch of items on the ground.
These were all the loot obtained by killing those cultivators in the Thunder Pool Mountain’s secret realm. He couldn’t have the time to check 1 by 1.
Although the trip to the secret realm was a narrow escape from death, he didn’t gain a lot; there were various kinds of elixirs, spiritual materials, a dozen of superb spiritual weapons, and a few magic weapon prototypes.
A yellow bead, a pair of purple strange blades, a black horned long blade, a green long rod, and a broken black dagger.
Just these superb spiritual weapons could be exchanged for a huge sum of spirit stones; the value of the 5 magic weapon prototypes was needless to say.
In addition, the queen bee’s corpse, queen bee eggs and other objects were also put on the ground nearby.
It should be that after Wu Kui and others died in the hands of those Sky Beastkin Trial disciples, their belongings were looted by them. Now, it benefited Liu Ming who survived until the end.
Liu Ming was overjoyed. After sorting out the items, he planned to go to the market to sell these trophies for spirit stones.
Although he didn’t have any spirit stones on him at the moment, as long as he sold these spiritual weapons, his net worth would rise again.
Then, he took out the book of the Hell Bone Secret and the refine method book of the yellow turban soldier. After reading them for a while, he immediately shook his head and put it away.
These 2 books were quite profound and mysterious. He couldn’t comprehend in a short period of time.
But what made him happy was that Hell Bone Secret did not record in green hell text, but it was some kind of ancient text that he knew.
However, it was not the time to cultivate after all. The most urgent task was to restore his strength as soon as possible.
After Liu Ming consumed a yun spirit pill, he immediately sat down and began to examine his body carefully while digesting the elixir.
For several months, he was hunted by Thunder Beastkin and then trapped in the Odd Desert. After a series of battles, his body had accumulated a lot of hidden injuries. It was time to take care of it.
After 3 days and 3 nights, Liu Ming slowly opened his eyes, and his frowning brows also eased.
Without the suppression of the Odd Desert, coupled with the healing elixirs he took, the spiritual power in his body quickly recovered to the peak and the physical damage was almost recovered.
Only when he tried to sense the drop of Sky Beastkin’s blood essence that he swallowed in the secret realm, he found that the blood essence disappeared without a trace in his body.
Liu Ming was puzzled, and he stopped thinking about it. He took off the soul-recovering bag around his waist and released the 2 spiritual pets.
After entering the Odd Desert, he checked the 2 spiritual pets and found that they had been falling asleep, but he checked them clearly as he couldn’t protect himself at the beginning.
Now after checking, the 2 spiritual pets still showed no signs of awakening.
After Liu Ming looked closely again, he found that the silver Bone Scorpion had weird yellow spirit patterns flickering on it; even though the Demon Flying Skull was sleeping, there were little red lights in the eye sockets. Both were exuding a strange powerful aura.
Liu Ming had many questions in his mind. After pondering for a while, he grabbed the 2 spiritual pets and channeled the Celestial Tablet in the sea of consciousness.
As soon as his vision turned dark, he appeared in the mysterious bubble space with the 2 spiritual pets.
“Senior Luo Hu!” Liu Ming yelled immediately after putting down the 2 spiritual pets.
“Don’t need to be so loud, I can hear you!”
Not far in front of Liu Ming, a figure emerged out of thin air. It was Luo Hu.
After looking up and down Liu Ming, he suddenly said indifferently,
“You boy is really lucky. You have encountered great enemies many times during this period. I thought you were dead, but I didn’t expect you to survive. Tell me, why are you here this time? ?”
“Since senior has seen what I encountered, I won’t repeat it again. When I was in the Thunder Pool Mountain’s secret realm, I swallowed a drop of the Sky Beastkin’s blood essence when I was demonized. Do you know…” Liu Ming secretly slandered a few words, but he asked with a wry smile.
