“You want to ask why that drop of blood essence disappeared right?” Luo Hu interrupted before Liu Ming finished speaking.
“Yes. Senior, please enlighten me.” Liu Ming said without being annoyed.
“Do you know that you have already been to hell once?” Luo Hu looked at Liu Ming and said faintly.
Liu Ming was shocked upon hearing that.
“Do you think that drop of blood essence is an ordinary elixir that you can simply consume? The blood essence contains the blood essences of all the Beastkin Clans. It is exceptionally precious for the beastkin cultivator, but even so, if a beastkin cultivator consumes it, he still has to bear the cleansing power of thousands of beastkin blood. After the blood essence is completely absorbed, the beastkin physique will be greatly strengthened. However, you aren’t a beastkin. When swallowing the blood essence, you should have exploded on the spot due to an incompatible bloodline.” Luo Hu ignored the changes in Liu Ming’s complexion and continued to say with a sneer.
Liu Ming’s face changed drastically, but he didn’t say anything.
Because he knew very well that since Luo Hu mentioned this matter, he would definitely explain the matter to him thoroughly.
Sure enough, Luo Hu quickly changed into a half-smile expression and continued,
“I don’t know if you are lucky or what. After you demonized, you somehow triggered the prison’s protective function which automatically refined the blood essence before the blood eseence blending into your body.”
“Will the Sky Beastkin blood essence have any effect on my body?” Liu Ming couldn’t help but burst into a cold sweat, and he immediately asked again.
“Prison is infinitely mysterious. The refined Sky Beastkin blood essence of the sky demon is not only harmless, it will also be of great help in strengthening your physique.” Luo Hu said slowly.
“In that case, junior is relieved, but since then, my 2 spiritual pets have been sleeping for some reason. Is it related to this too?” Liu Ming was delighted and relieved, and he immediately changed the thread f the conversation.
“Yes. After the essences that cannot be merged into your body are separated by the prison, they are poured into your 2 spiritual pets. Your Bone Scorpion and Demon Flying Skull were also blessed in disguise; a great mutation has occurred in them. When they wake up again, they should be able to directly advance to the Crystallization Period.” Luo Hu nodded and continued.
“Thank you senior for your advice.” Liu Ming was delighted and immediately thanked him.
“Don’t be happy too early. You have been demonized several times, and you have accumulated a lot of demonic will in your body. In addition, after taking this Sky Beastkin blood essence, your body is already extremely unstable. If you demonize again, I’m afraid you will be completely lost your mind and turned into a killing monster; you will never be able to regain your body anymore.”
The next moment, Luo Hu’s remarks were like a bucket of cold water pouring down on Liu Ming, making him depressed.
“Senior should have a way right?” Liu Ming took a deep breath and immediately cupped his fist.
“There is a way, but it just might take some effort.” Luo Hu nodded after hesitating for a while.
“Senior, please tell me clearly.” Liu Ming said without hesitation.
“Demonic will is deep in your body. If you want to suppress it, you can’t rely on external forces. If you should cultivate Heavenly Thunder Spell to the perfect state as soon as possible, and then take the risk to absorb a trace of the Ninth Heaven Divine Thunder into your body. It can temporarily suppress the demonic will in your body.” Luo Hu finally told him with a straight face.
“Can it only be temporarily suppressed?” Liu Ming frowned.
“Of course, do you think the true demonic will is so easy to suppress it? Although the Ninth Heaven Divine Thunder can suppress your demonic will, it is also an expedient measure to buy time for yourself. When you break through the Real Pellet State, you will have a chance to reshape your body. At that time, with the help of the body cleansing power and the Ninth Heaven Divine, you can completely get rid of the potential dangers brought by the Sky Beastkin blood essence.” Luo Hu stared at Liu Ming in annoyance. He said coldly,
“The Ninth Heaven Divine Thunder can only be drawn after you have practiced the Heavenly Thunder Spell to the perfect stage, so the risk of drawing it into my body should be quite high right?” Liu Ming frowned and asked again.
“You’re right. It is indeed very dangerous to channel the Ninth Heaven Divine Thunder into your body. 1 carelessness will cause you to be completely erased under the thunder force. Besides, before you reshape your body, you can no longer use the Heavenly Thunder Spell in battle. Otherwise, because you have been suppressing the demonic will forcibly for a long time, once you draw the Ninth Heaven Divine Thunder into your body, you will demonize on the spot. By the time, you can no longer recover from it.” Luo Hu warned seriously.
“Junior understands thoroughly. Thank you senior for the reminder!” Liu Ming thought for a moment before he bowed in gratitude.
“Hehe, I did this because I just don’t want the prison to change to another owner so quickly…” Luo Hu sneered, flicked his sleeves, and disappeared into thin air.
Seeing this, Liu Ming went to check the situation of the 2 spiritual pets.
Although Bone Scorpion and Demon Flying Skull wouldn’t awake for any time soon, their aura was quite stable. Just like Luo Hu said, they were mutating right now, so it should be fine.
In the following days, Liu Ming continued to practice the Dragon Tiger Hell Prison and went into the illusion to focus on training Heavenly Thunder Spell.
When Liu Ming was practicing in peace, something big had already been brewing in the entire southern wilderness.
On the high mountain range in the southern wilderness, gusts of mist drifted slowly, surrounding the steep peaks in layers.
Take a closer look, the southern wilderness-style buildings were scattered all over the mountains. From time to time, there were silhouettes of people shuttling between the peaks.
There was a lone mountain in the middle of this mountain range which was quite tall. It was more than half higher than the nearby mountain. On the top of the mountain, a black flagpole with a height of 100 meters stood up, and the top of the flagpole was a black flag of tens of meters tall. A golden word “Iron” was printed on the flag.
Those who were familiar with the southern wilderness know that this was the Iron Peak, the base of the 1 of the 3 great beastkin cultivators in the southern wilderness, Iron Beastkin.
An octagonal tower with a 1000 meters height not far away; the entire tower was black, exuding bursts of thick aura.
On the top of the tower, a middle-aged man with a black face was sitting on the purple-golden wood chair with a gloomy expression.
He was the Iron Beastkin, Zong Yan, known as 1 of the 3 great beastkins in the southern wilderness. Id in front of him, a thin young man in a black robe was lying on the ground.
“What!? He hasn’t returned yet?” Iron Beastkin groaned and looked at the young man below coldly.
“Yes! I learned from Thunder Beastkin’s disciples that Master Thunder Beastkin has not returned since the changes occurred in the secret realm.” The young man’s face turned pale, and he didn’t dare to breathe.
As Iron Beastkin heard this, his black face became even darker. He slammed the armrest of the chair and stood up. There was a palm print on the armrest.
“Is the news true?” Iron Beastkin asked coldly.
“I have confirmed with Elder Xing of the Thunder Pool Mountain. The news is absolutely true.” The thin young man said cautiously.
“What’s the situation in Thunder Pool Mountain now?” Iron Beastkin asked.
“3 days ago, Thunder Pool Mountain had closed the mountain, and the mountain protection array was activated. Now all the disciples stayed inside the Thunder Pool Mountain.” The thin young man replied.
“Continue to pay attention to the situation of Thunder Pool Mountain. In addition, send someone to monitor the other factions in the southern wilderness. Report to me as soon as there is any changes.” Iron Beastkin thought for a while before speaking again.
“Yes!” After hearing the words, the thin young man quickly walked out after a slight bow.
Iron Beastkin stood up slowly, pacing back and forth in the hall with his brows furrowed.
In the beginning, he thought the Sky Beastkin Plan would go smoothly after teaming up with Thunder Beastkin. He never thought that there would be such a big mistake.
For this plan, they detained many cultivators of all races into the secret realm, and they did not hesitate to offend the Sky Beastkin Valley.
Although this matter was hidden, it was a matter of time before the others discovered it. Now that a sudden change occurred in the Thunder Pool Mountain, some well-informed forces may had discovered the clues.
Originally, even if things were exposed, the existence of the 2 Celestial States was enough to deter those forces. To say the least, they brought along their disciples and disappeared with the Sky Beastkin’s inheritance. After grasping the mystery of the Mystic Comprehending state, they could show themselves again.
But now, the plan didn’t succeed and Thunder Beastkin also disappeared suddenly which made him unable to deal with this situation.
At the same time, after the thin young man in a black robe stepped out from the hall, he was greatly relieved. After wiping the cold sweat on his forehead, he cast a black iron flying car and flew away.
Just as he flew into midair, a giant green sword qi descended from the sky, slashing the person and the flying car in half.
The speed was fast as lightning.
Before the young man figured out what was going on, his entire body and Divine Thought were decimated in this violent sword qi.
Immediately afterward, a golden giant bowl with the size of several acres flashed out and transformed into a huge bowl-shaped light curtain, which instantly shrouding the entire Iron Peak. There were circles of strange dazzling runes on the light curtain, illuminating the surroundings brightly.
Outside the light curtain, a huge silver boat emerged immediately, and a dozen people flew out of it.
These people were all dressed in black robes. Bursts of powerful aura radiated out without hiding. The weakest of them also had the cultivation level of the Real Pellet State intermediate stage.
The 3 in front even had the aura that far exceeded the Real Pellet State. 1 was a muscular strong man; 1 was an old man with a withered figure; the another was a young woman in black with a slender figure.
At this moment, facing the nearly a thousand beastkin cultivators flying out of the Iron Peak, they all looked calm.
Some beastkin cultivators of the Iron Peak knew that they didn’t come with kind intention judging the death of the thin young man. They immediately attacked the light curtain, but their attacks didn’t cause any substantial damage to it at all.
TL: Are these men here for revenge? Or are they here for the Sky Beastkin blood essence?
