After half a month, Liu Ming, after some detours and many disguises, finally returned to his cave house without being followed by anyone.
As soon as he stepped into the cave house, he walked straight into the alchemy room.
After placing several layers of enchantment inside and outside the alchemy room, he devoted himself to refine the yun spirit pill.
A few months passed in a flash. When Liu Ming came out of the alchemy room again, the five light liquid in his hand was all refined.
Instead, there were more than a dozen flawless grade yun spirit pills and a large number of normal grade pills.
Among them, the queen bee honey was unexpectedly refined into 5 earth grade yun spirit pills which made him ecstatic.
As for the celestial phenomena caused by refining the earth grade elixir, most of them were blocked by the enchantments arranged in the cave house. Even if some spirit leaked out, no one would notice in this remote place.
For a period of time after that, he started to take the yun spirit pills while cultivating.
1 month later, when he was meditating cross-legged in the secret room, the soul-recovering bag on his waist suddenly trembled. The voice of a girl sounded.
“Master, let me out quickly, it’s so uncomfortable!”
“You are awake?” Liu Ming opened his eyes and said with joy, then he released Divine Thought and found that the Bone Scorpion in the soul-recovering bag was waving the pair of giant pincers desperately, struggling to get out of it.
Although he didn’t know exactly why Bone Scorpion acted like this as soon as it woke up, he didn’t say a word. A black gas rolled out from his waist, and a silver light flashed on the ground, revealing Bone Scorpion.
As soon as Bone Scorpion appeared, its body surface flashed with silver light as it dug under the secret room.
Liu Ming was taken aback for a moment, then he took out an earth escape talisman and stuck it on him. He also followed Bone Scorpion to dig into the ground.
Just a moment after Bone Scorpion got into the ground, the entire mountain trembled slightly. The mud and stones in the mountain seemed to be pulled by a huge force, and they gathered toward somewhere underground.
Such strange phenomena surprised Liu Ming who was in the ground.
But when he came close to Bone Scorpion not far away, he found an even more astonishing scene.
Bone Scorpion, deep in the underground, turned into a gray stone ball a few feet in size. It spun frantically, forming a gray vortex that constantly pulling countless hard gravels and soil.
Liu Ming immediately tried to communicate with Bone Scorpion through Divine Thought, trying to get some clues.
However, Bone Scorpion did not respond to him, and the stone ball that wrapped Bone Scorpion was getting bigger and bigger under the adsorption of the surrounding gravels and soil. It didn’t intend to stop at all.
As the stone ball rolled bigger and bigger, the aura of Bone Scorpion was gradually amplified.
At this moment, there was a “bang“.
The gray stone ball actually started rolling underground, rushing into the mountainside amid the rumbling noise.
Seeing this, Liu Ming naturally followed up with escape light.
The gray stone ball that Bone Scorpion turned into was constantly shuttling among the soil and stones in the entire mountain. Wherever it passed, the gravel containing a lot of spirits was absorbed by the stone ball, tightly sticking to the stone ball.
With such a weird situation, Liu Ming was shocked in his mind. Could it be that Bone Scorpion has another magical skill after absorbing the Sky Beastkin blood essence?
This situation lasted for half an hour, and the gray stone ball rolled wildly in the entire mountain belly. It almost gathered all the nearby rubble on itself, and its size also skyrocketed from only a few feet in size at first to tens of meters.
Finally, after a muffled sound, the stone ball slowly stopped, and the entire mountain was calm again.
After seeing this situation, Liu Ming tried again to communicate with Bone Scorpion through Divine Thought, but he still couldn’t get in touch.
But the huge stone ball did not move in the mountainside.
Liu Ming waited nearby for half a day. After seeing that the stone ball didn’t show any abnormality, he immediately returned to the cave house.
He looked at the messy cave house, then he shook his head and returned to the secret room to cultivate.
From then on, Liu Ming would dig into the mountainside after a while to observe the situation of Bone Scorpion, but he could only see the giant stone ball motionless on the spot. It seemed that Bone Scorpion had really fallen asleep again.
This situation lasted for half a year.
On this day, Liu Ming was using the Illusive Demonic Pupil to fight with the Golden Savage Tribe’s great elder, but his face changed suddenly. He let his opponent kill him with a palm, and he left the illusion. After that he patted on the Celestial Tablet and closed his eyes, he heard a buzz and left the mysterious space.
As soon as he opened his eyes, he quickly checked the other leather bag on his waist that was shaking desperately.
The Demon Flying Skull also woke up. It was constantly vomiting clouds of bloody mist, filling the entire soul-recovering bag.
“Master, I’m going to advance, let me go quickly.” A boy’s anxious voice reached Liu Ming’s ears.
With the situation of Bone Scorpion before, Liu Ming didn’t feel strange about it. He immediately slapped the soul-recovering bag on his waist, and a gust of blood mist spewed out, turning into a green human head.
As soon as Demon Flying Skull appeared, it spurted a bloody mist that intertwined directly into a bloody cocoon of 10 meters in size. The bloody cocoon wrapped it inside tightly.
The blood cocoon just spun 1 round, and its aura was also skyrocketing like Bone Scorpion.
Liu Ming looked closely. The blood cocoon was covered with fine blood silks. It was flickering with bloody light as it was pulsing slightly as if something was constantly squirming inside.
Demon Flying Skull’s abnormality really happened right after.
Speaking of which, Bone Scorpion and Demon Flying Skull’s advancement was all related to Sky Beastkin blood essence. This Sky Beastkin blood essence seemed to be significantly more effective in powering up the spiritual pets.
Liu Ming glanced at the bloody cocoon of the Demon Flying Skull, took another deep breath, and immediately continued to sit cross-legged nearby.
At noon 7 days later, the weather of the original clear sky suddenly became dense with dark clouds. Over the mountain range where Liu Ming’s cave house was located, a strange wind rolled over with a loud whistling sound.
At the same time, the bloody cocoon condensed by Demon Flying Skull was still pulsing, but the blood silks on the surface were actually much thicker than that of seven days ago. A bloody mist also continuously exuded from the surface of the bloody cocoon.
Liu Ming also noticed the abnormality. He immediately stood up to look at the bloody cocoon.
As the bloody mist accumulated more and more, the bloody cocoon shrank quickly with a muffled sound. After 10 minutes, it disappeared without a trace, turning into a cloud of thick bloody mist.
This cloud of blood mist seemed to be attracted by the nature force. It rushed above the secret room and penetrated the wall strangely.
Liu Ming released Divine Thought to trace the bloody mist. He found that it was heading toward the top of the mountain with a hastening speed. After a few seconds, it had already reached the mountain peak. It then condensed back into the bloody cocoon.
At the same time, there was a loud rumbling in the mountainside too. The entire secret room shook again.
The stone ball of Bone Scorpion also seemed to be attracted by the nature force as it rose up in a flash of silver light.
After a while, the gray stone ball broke out from the top of the mountain, and it stopped beside the bloody cocoon.
At this time, in the sky above the mountain peak, all the dark clouds had formed a giant black vortex of 100 meters in size. Bursts of cold wind were continuously pulled into the vortex. .
“Swoosh“, a golden light flashed across the sky and appeared beside them.
After the golden light faded, Liu Ming was revealed.
He was aware of the strange phenomenon, then he immediately rushed over with sword controlling technique.
In the bloody cocoon, the aura of Demon Flying Skull became obvious again; in the giant gray stone ball that had not changed for a long time, the aura of Bone Scorpion also came out. The 2 aura intertwined and separated as they became increasingly powerful.
Seeing this, Liu Ming understood right away.
2 spiritual pets are going to advance at the same time!
After thinking for a while, Liu Ming quickly took out 6 golden formation flags from the Sumeru Ring, chanted and threw them around.
After that, he quickly launched a few symbols at the formation flags.
A layer of pale golden light suddenly emerged and enveloped the 2.
At this time, a thick green lightning arc struck on top of the golden light curtain fiercely.
The green lightning caused the golden light curtain to tremble. The top was dented because of the strike, and there was a hint of collapsing.
Just as Liu Ming launched a few symbols into the formation flags, the light curtain was recovered instantly. A few green lightning arcs struck down continuously.
Seeing this, Liu Ming frowned. He immediately channeled the heavenly thunder power in his body. Silver lightning arcs were condensed in his palm and shot out at the heavenly thunder.
“Bang bang bang“, green and silver sparks scattered in the sky.
After the sparks dissipated, the green lightning arcs still struck down from the giant vortex without stopping, and the lightning became more and more intense.
TL: Can they survive the tribulation and successfully advance?
