Seeing this, Liu Ming squinted. He thought in his mind: These 4 people must have done this for living. If I was trapped by the green light silk by surprise, I would have died by their joint attacks.
But for him who had easily killed the Real Pellet State cultivator, it was naturally not worth mentioning.
If it weren’t because he was still stuck in breaking through the Crystallization Period later stage bottleneck, he would have killed them as soon as they appeared.
But in the current situation, he also had to make the battle quick.
Liu Ming changed his gesture, and the 4 black mist dragons rushed out from his body.
One of the mist dragons roared and dissolved the black goshawk’s claw phantasm, then it charged toward the goshawk, entangled to disperse the hurricane, bit the goshawk’s wing swiftly and bound the goshawk directly with its body.
The other black mist dragon flicked its tail to crush the rod phantasms, then it dived down at the giant gray wolf; the 2 engaged in a close-range combat.
The last 2 black mist dragons rushed to the front of the one-eyed man and the savage tribe middle-aged man with lightning speed.
When the one-eyed man and the savage tribe middle-aged man saw this, their expressions changed drastically. 1 threw out a green shield that blocked in front and the other spouted a gray hurricane that rolled at the mist dragon.
At this time, Liu Ming said, “Explode.”
The four mist dragons exploded. Not only did the gray wolf and goshawk stumbled back, the rolling black light also spread and swarmed the 3 Crystallization Period cultivators and the gray wolf.
A thunder sounded!
4 silver lightning arcs were launched from Liu Ming’s hands. After turning blurred, 4 silver lightning spears drew an arc into the black light.
After a few horrifying screams, the 4 were pierced by lightning spears at the same time. Their defensive aura and various protective spiritual weapons were ineffective under the terrifying lightning power, they turned into ashes along with their masters; even their souls were annihilated.
The whole process only took seconds, making Elder Wu’s face turn extremely pale.
“Sir, we are just…” The old man couldn’t help but step back a few steps as he said. Suddenly, he flicked his sleeves fiercely, and 8 lights were launched at Liu Ming. After that, he stuck 2 yellow talismans on himself and flew away.
However, as soon as he flew out, he only felt cold in his neck. The surrounding scenery quickly changed. When he wanted to look down, he found that he was falling continuously. What made him even more frightened was that he couldn’t turn his head at all!
At that moment, he knew he was beheaded.
With a wave of 1 hand, Liu Ming cut off the old man’s head and eliminated his soul with the golden flying sword. The sword then flew back into Liu Ming’s body.
From beginning to end, Liu Ming sat cross-legged and never moved half a step. He only used 1 hand to kill all of them.
As for the spiritual weapons in the storage talismans of the 4, he snatched them with a roll of his sleeve.
Some nearby cultivators who originally coveted his spiritual pets were horrified to see Liu Ming first instant-killed a Crystallization Period cultivator and 8 Condensation Period cultivators, then he slaughtered 4 Crystallization Period cultivators with overwhelming skills.
Suddenly, on the surrounding mountain peaks, escape lights were flashing into various directions.
In just a quarter of an hour, most of the cultivators went back the way they came from.
But there were still some cultivators who seemed unwilling. They just flew quietly to the farther mountain peaks to wait again.
These people were of course thinking when Liu Ming failed in breaking through, they could take advantage of that.
Liu Ming didn’t care much about these cultivators. He just consumed another yun spirit pill, then he glanced at the Bone Scorpion and Demon Flying Skull beside him. They were still concentrating on dealing with the thunder calamity.
Speaking of which, this thunder calamity was also very strange. It kept striking initially, but now there were only a few lightnings after a dozen minutes. However, the intensity of the lightnings was amplified. Bone Scorpion and Demon Flying Skull were still doing okay under the protection of the stone ball and bloody cocoon.
However, in this way, the advancement of the 2 might not be completed in 1 or 2 days.
After Liu Ming settled in his mind, he closed his eyes again and continued to break through the bottleneck.
This situation lasted for 3 days in a row.
In these 3 days, Bone Scorpion and Demon Flying Skull continued to withstand waves of lightnings. Although they didn’t break through successfully, their aura was increasing day by day. They were only 1 step away from reaching the Crystallization Period.
At this moment, Liu Ming’s complexion also became a little pale. Black gas tumbled out from his body. He was sweating profusely. His body was a few sizes larger than he was at the beginning. He was obviously at the critical moment of breaking through the bottleneck.
However, at this moment, a huge spiritual pressure suddenly swept from a distance.
The next moment, on a mountain not far away, a white-bone flying boat approached at hastened speed.
The bone boat seemed to be made from the entire skeleton of a wild giant beast in the southern wilderness. It was exuding white light, which looked a little weird.
When the bone boat stopped at a mountain peak, a young man dressed in a white robe with high cheekbones jumped out.
As soon as the young man landed, he retracted the bone boat with 1 hand, then he released his Divine Thought unscrupulously.
Seeing this situation, the remaining cultivators on the nearby mountain all fled in fear.
Only a moment later, the nearby cultivators were gone, but there were still a few Crystallization Period later stage cultivators who were conceited on their own strength. They all retreated to a farther mountain peak.
Seeing that a Real Pellet State cultivator came, they lost interest in Liu Ming, but they all gathered together to watch the situation developed.
Seeing this situation, the young man in a white robe nodded with satisfaction. He looked at the mountain peak not far away where the celestial phenomenon was located, then he glanced across Liu Ming and fixed his gaze at the 2 spiritual pets.
“Real Pellet State early stage cultivator!”
Liu Ming naturally saw the young man in a white robe. He frowned slightly after scanning with Divine Thought.
Although he was not afraid of this Real Pellet State early stage cultivator, it wasn’t so easy to deal with like the previous cultivators.
While Liu Ming was distracted to think about countermeasures, the Real Pellet State cultivator didn’t do anything. He just stood there with his hands behind his back with a solemn face, seemingly thinking about something.
After a while, 2 escape lights flew from the other mountains not far away to the young man in a white robe, and they landed not far in front of him.
After the lights faded, 2 Crystallization Period cultivators, who also wore white robes, stood on both side respectfully and bowed at the young man in a white robe,
“Greetings to Elder Yu!”
“Cut the courtesy. This time your news is very useful to me. I can’t imagine that there will be 2 spiritual pets that are breaking through to the Crystallization Period in such a remote place. Don’t worry, when I return to the tribe, I will reward both of you!” The young man in a white robe said with a loud smile.
“Thank you elder!” The 2 Crystallization Period cultivators were overjoyed when they heard the words. They quickly bowed to him.
“Okay, according to my observation, it will take some time for the 2 spiritual pets to complete their breakthrough. You 2 can go back first. I will be waiting for them to break through before subduing them, then I will return right away.” The young man in a white robe waved at them to let them leave.
“Elder Yu, there is a Crystallization Period cultivator next to the spiritual pets who should be their master. Do you need us to hold him back?” 1 of the handsome young people asked cautiously.
“Hmph, I have already advanced to the Real Pellet State now. How can a human kid of the Crystallization Period intermediate stage be a threat to me? The 2 spiritual pets should have undergone a serious mutation judging from their situation. If I can catch and control them, I will be even more powerful. But in order not to disturb their breakthrough, I will let this human race kid live for a while.” The man in a white robe said with a smile. His eyes showed a trace of eagerness as if the 2 spiritual pets were already his.
“Then we will congratulate master’s junior for successfully getting 2 spiritual pets. We will go back to the tribe first.” The 2 young people looked at each other after hearing the words, then they cupped their fist, turned into 2 white escape light and disappeared into the mountains.
After the man in a white robe glanced at Liu Ming again, he sat on a green boulder and waited quietly.
After Liu Ming realized that the Real Pellet Statepowerhouse did not take any action, although he felt a little strange in his heart, he was naturally happy about it. He immediately continued to focus on breaking through.
After half a day, the dark clouds above the 2 spiritual pets gradually turned into a large green-black mist sea.
After the rumbling thunder, a little golden thunder flame flickered from the green-black mist sea,. It condensed into 2 thick golden lightning pillars in the middle.
As soon as the golden lightning pillar was formed, it struck down with billowing golden thunder flame on the stone ball and bloody cocoon.
Seeing this, Liu Ming’s pupils shrank slightly.
2 loud noises came!
Suddenly, the entire mountain shook; sand and rocks scattered all around, stirring up bursts of dust!
Liu Ming couldn’t see the specific situation of the 2 spiritual pets for a while. He could only vaguely see 2 huge pits appearing on the top of the peak.
At the center of the huge pit, strands of golden spark flashed on the surface of the damaged stone ball and bloody cocoon.
TL: Can Liu Ming break through before his spiritual pets?
