As Liu Ming shouted, the golden flying sword stretched and enlarged twice as huge, and it whizzed at the red moon spider at a high speed.
Seeing this, the red moon spider neighed as its body burst out a dazzling red light.
As soon as the surrounding rock wall touched the red light, it ignited a raging flame, turning the surroundings into a sea of red flame.
The red flames kept tumbling, forming a 100 meters tall giant flame wave.
The red moon spider didn’t move, letting the flame wave overwhelm it so that it could conceal itself from the true spirit flying sword.
Liu Ming sneered. He chanted while changing the gestures. The void spirit flying sword swirled and launched a golden sword light that swept out.
The golden light flashed, and the turbulent flame wave was pushed back, revealing the figure of the red moon spider hiding in the corner.
The beastkin was shocked as its figure was revealed. Without thinking, it leaped and dodged sideways again.
At this moment, Liu Ming channeled a sword gesture with a groan.
The golden flying sword turned into a shocking rainbow that rolled down at the spider.
The red moon spider made a muffled roar and stumbled, almost falling to the ground. One of its long leg was slashed into pieces by the sword light.
However, this beastkin had gone mad as its leg was cut off. With a flash of red light, it spouted a fist-size round bead.
Liu Ming’s pupils shrank as he immediately recognized the object.
This beastkin seemed to be completely triggered by Liu Ming. It was going to perish together with Liu Ming with a desperate move.
The fiery red real pellet was transformed into a huge fireball with a diameter of 10 meters, and it was launched at Liu Ming like a meteor.
Liu Ming made a gesture, and a pair of silver wings appeared behind him. With a quick and forceful flap, his figure disappeared without a trace.
Boom, the huge fireball swept past where Liu Ming was standing.
The next moment, behind the spider, a vague figure flashed out.
But at this moment, the madness in the bloody compound eyes of the red moon spider disappeared instantly. The previous move of shooting its beastkin pellet was just a bait. Its tail flicked slightly, and a red spider net was launched at the figure behind, turning into a red cocoon abruptly
The red moon spider neighed triumphantly. It spouted a red flame to ignite the red cocoon, burning it into a puff of green smoke.
At this moment, there was a whistling sound!
A faint golden light appeared behind the red moon spider. It flashed and slashed at the spider’s back that couldn’t dodge in time.
A red light flashed on the back of the red moon spider, making it extremely hard. The golden sword light couldn’t slash it in half surprisingly, but it still left a 10 meters deep wound. Fiery red blood gushed out in an instant.
The red moon spider rolled and leaped for 10 meters away after taking such a blow. Its compound eyes were flashing wildly as if it couldn’t understand how the opponent escape from the spider web.
A hint of mockery in Liu Ming’s eyes was fleeting. Although the red moon spider was cunning, how could it be compared with him in terms of combat experience?
It was only his phantasm that was being wrapped in the spider web.
He of course wouldn’t explain anything to the beastkin. He just waved 1 hand, and the Void Sword blasted out in a golden light once again.
A trace of fear finally appeared in the eyes of the red moon spider. It leaped with its remaining 7 legs, quickly running out of the cave.
Liu Ming was slightly startled by this move, but then he smirked.
A rumbling noise!
A dozen sharp stone pillars suddenly appeared on the ground of the cave, hitting the abdomen of the red moon spider. Although they could not penetrate through its body, it was still pushed into the air.
The girl in black tulle transformed by Bone Scorpion sneaked into the nearby underground and cast a spell in time to stop the red moon spider.
Just when the red moon spider was in the air, a nearby stone wall flashed with a green light. The boy in green clothes appeared silently and spouted a gray flame at the head of the red moon spider.
The gray flame of Demon Flying Skull was a kind of ghost flame that was condensed from the filth aura in his body which was obtained from the Sky Beastkin blood essence. Not only it could contaminate various spiritual weapons, it also had incredibly corrosive effects.
Even with the tough body of the red moon spider, once it was hit by the ghost flame, it fell directly from the air with a scream.
At this moment, the golden rainbow rolled over and split into 2. 2 dazzling golden sword lights slashed the head of the red moon spider with a cross.
“Pch“, blood spattered arond!
The huge spider’s head rolled down from its neck.
A quarter of an hour later, a black light flew into the air and flew toward the distance.
In a few short years, Liu Ming brought 2 spiritual pets to kill beastkins everywhere in the southern wilderness to collect their souls.
For the souls above the Crystallization Period, he let the Che Huan totem absorbed them directly while he kept the low level beastkin’s souls into a small bottle so that he could exchange some contribution points after returning to the sect.
He ran around the southern wilderness day and night endlessly, but he didn’t notice that a rumor had gradually spread among the major markets.
It is said that in the southern wilderness, an extremely powerful gray-robed cultivator appeared. It was suspected to be a powerhouse who had just advanced to the Celestial State. More than one person witnessed it with their own eyes. The cultivator continuously slew numerous Real Pellet State beastkins one after another.
Various rumors were getting more and more mysterious. Some people even speculated that this person may be a cultivator who betrayed the 4 ancient sects just like the Southern Puppet Emperor back then.
These rumors also gradually spread to the ears of some Celestial State powerhouses in the southern wilderness, making their originally tight and sensitive nerves tenser.
After all, the appearance of a strange Celestial State powerhouse was a huge thing. Especially when the various forces in the southern wilderness tried to achieve a subtle balance in power.
Just when these people were about to meet this gray-robed cultivator in person for a while. The so-called Celestial State cultivator had already set foot on the way to leave the southern wilderness.
In the Miasma Mist Sea on the border of the southern wilderness, a jade boat broke through the green mist like a stream of light, flying toward the Middle Sky Continent.
Above the jade boat, Liu Ming was fiddling with a silver disk array with a thoughtful look.
This was the letter disk array that every disciple of the Fallen Serene Peak received when they joined. At this moment, a row of looming small characters flashed on the silver disk.
This was a message sent to him by Yin Jiuling, the master of Fallen Serene Peak, half a month ago, saying that there was something important and that he should return to the sect immediately.
He also hurried away because of this. According to his plan, he would only leave the southern wilderness after a year or a half.
After all, once he returned to the Taiqing Sect, it was not easy to find so many beastkins.
“What is the important thing in the sect?” Liu Ming frowned slightly.
In all, it had been more than 20 years since he left the Taiqing Sect. For cultivators, this time was just a snap. During this period, his nominal master had never sent him any message.
But even so, he didn’t dare to neglect the summon of the sect. After a casual reply, he set off immediately.
However, this southern wilderness was a little far away from Thousands Spirit Mountain Range. Even if he had the Daiyue Jade Boat and used several teleportation arrays along the way, it took him more than a year to return to the Thousands Spirit Mountain Range where Taiqing Sect was located.
1 year later, Liu Ming looked at the magnificent scenery of thousands of tall mountains in front of him. A hint of nostalgia flashed in his eyes.
As he was flying toward the Fallen Serene Peak, 5 cultivators dressed as inner disciples flew toward him. Their cuffs were embroidered with the shape of a small sword.
When he met the inner disciples outside of Thousands Spirit Mountain Range, he couldn’t help taking a glance, but he was slightly startled.
“Eh, is it you?”
When several people passed by Liu Ming, a cold voice suddenly sounded. These disciples stopped one after another too.
The next moment, a man in a brocade robe with a gloomy expression flew out first.
“It turned out to be Brother Sha, it’s been a long time since then.” Liu Ming said faintly. He didn’t expect to meet an acquaintance when he came back.
The man in a brocade robe was Sha Tongtian from the Tianjian Peak.
Over the past 20 years, this person’s appearance had not changed much, but his cultivation had improved a lot. He had reached the intermediate stage of the Crystallization Period, and the sword qi that fluctuated from him had become sharper.
After entering the Crystallization Period, the improvement of cultivation was no longer as easy as in the Condensation State. Every small realm may have a bottleneck. It was common for a cultivator to be stuck in a bottleneck for more than a hundred years.
As for the other Tianjian Peak disciples, their faces were all new to Liu Ming. Their cultivation was at the early stage of the Crystallization Period, and there was even a disciple of the Condensation Period.
“Very well, Brother Liu has finally returned. Since the last time we met, I have been waiting for the day we meet again.” Sha Tongtian stared at Liu Ming and said word by word.
Liu Ming smiled casually upon hearing that.
It seemed that this talented disciple of the Tianjian Peak still had a lot of grievances in losing to him in the past.
Sha Tongtian took a closer look at Liu Ming, and his face suddenly changed slightly.
When the 2 stood facing each other, he couldn’t feel Liu Ming’s aura at all. He couldn’t help but be stunned in his mind.
“Oh, does Brother Sha have anything to share?” Liu Ming asked with a spurious smile.
He previously killed a lot of high level beastkins in the southern wilderness for “Che Huan” to absorb the beastkin souls. Now, he had slightly mastered it. He could hide his aura at any time.
Unless he was willing, otherwise even a Celestial State powerhouse couldn’t easily peek at his cultivation.
“Not at all, but since I fought against Brother Liu last time, I have benefited a lot. I wonder if Brother Liu dares to have a match with me again.” After Sha Tongtian discarded the doubts in his mind, a glimmer of light flashed in his eyes as he said.
TL: This time, he will lose even more miserably…
