At the same time, Liu Ming’s body was full of black light. A large black mist rushed out, condensing into 5 black mist dragons and 5 black mist tigers. After roaring, they also soared into the sky.
A loud impact.
As soon as the giant golden sword flashed, it slashed on the giant purple hand. Thunder and golden light flourished for a while. The sword light only slashed through the surface of the giant purple hand, then it was smashed into pieces, turning into a golden rain.
But the mist dragons and mist tigers slammed on it fiercely. Rolling black waves spread and pushed the purple giant hand slightly.
But the next moment, Thunder Beastkin yelled, clutching his palm into fist.
A burst of thick purple lightning arcs rushed out from the hand, instantly smashing all the mist dragons and mist tigers, and then it continued to press down.
When Liu Ming saw this, his pupils shrank. He flicked his arms, and dense purple scales emerged on his fists. In a flash of silver light, 2 silver gloves emerged and wrapped the purple fists in them.
A burst of whistling sound.
Dense silver fist shadows blasted upward like a torrential rain, shaking the giant purple hand.
However, the giant purple hand easily eliminated all the fist shadows with just a thick lightning arc. After a flash, it grabbed Liu Ming below and exploded him directly into a rain of blood.
Liu Ming instantly reappeared in the mysterious space with a pale fast.
“As expected, no matter how hard I try, it is still impossible to fight against the Celestial State cultivator…” He raised his hands and took a look before muttering.
Over the years, he had used Illusive Demonic Pupil countless times to simulate the situation of being chased by Thunder Beastkin, and he gradually realized some subtle skills in star magnetic force and Beast Armor Tactic. His strength was far greater than when he was at the intermediate stage of the Crystallization Period.
But even so, once he fought Thunder Beastkin head-on in the illusion, he would be crushed without any accident.
However, after undergoing repeated illusion simulations, Liu Ming had some huge gains. Especially his Divine Thought that was tempered many times, now he wouldn’t be intimidated which in turn reduced his own strength when facing the terrifying spiritual pressure of the Celestial State.
Even his mental power had a significant improvement which was a surprise to him.
Liu Ming immediately sat cross-legged, closed his eyes, and began to silently recall every detail of the fierce battle with Lie Zhentian in the illusion, carefully pondering his own mistakes.
But after 10 minutes, his expression suddenly changed as he opened his eyes in surprise.
The Celestial Tablet in front trembled without any sign, then with a “poof“, a series of dazzling golden spirit patterns suddenly rose up from the bottom of the tablet like vines.
There were faint runes circulating in these spirit patterns, which was really amazing.
In less than a moment, the entire tablet was covered with golden spirit patterns.
Just when Liu Ming was shocked, dazzling golden lights were suddenly released from the spirit patterns on the surface of the tablet. With countless golden lights flashing together, the golden spirit patterns emerged from the tablet one after another.
But after a while, a low-pitched Sanskrit sound came out, and the golden inscriptions kept dancing in the air, and they began to rotate rapidly around the entire tablet.
The originally gray and mysterious space was suddenly illuminated by endless golden light like daylight. Bursts of warm spirit filled the space at the same time.
At this time, Liu Ming stared at the golden inscriptions emerging out of thin air without blinking.
He who had wide knowledge actually couldn’t recognize any of these mysterious inscriptions.
After a few seconds, hundreds of golden inscriptions gathered in front of the stone tablet. In a flash, they turned into a huge unknown golden rune.
This rune had a size of 10 meters, and the surface was composed of countless densely packed small inscriptions that flashed rhythmically.
Seeing this phenomenon, Liu Ming almost subconsciously moved and immediately retreated 100 meters away.
Almost at the same time, there was a loud muffled explosion!
The huge golden rune suddenly exploded. Circles of faint golden mist rose up. Countless inscriptions shattered into little golden light spots. They combined with the golden spiritual mist to form a sea of golden light.
In the golden sea, a 40 meters wide and 50 meters tall golden giant door emerged slowly from the sea. The giant gate had different crisscrossed spirit patterns of various colors, outlining a strange pattern.
Liu Ming was naturally stunned. Just when he wanted to see these patterns carefully and remember them, the surroundings became dark suddenly. There was a burst of pain in the sea of consciousness, accompanied by a painful shout. The golden giant gate collapsed suddenly, turning into little golden light spots and disappeared with the golden sea.
But when Liu Ming regained his senses to see clearly, the golden light on the Celestial Tablet had already dimmed, and it had returned to its original appearance.
“Sure enough, it still doesn’t work, it seems that I’m still too anxious!” While Liu Ming was still a little surprised, there was a familiar soft sigh behind him.
After he turned around in a hurry, a 13 years old young man in a green robe stood behind him. It was Luo Hu. However, he looked rather strange as if he was looking forward to something.
“Senior Luo Hu, that was…” Liu Ming asked while cupping his fist.
“I can’t tell you yet. I can only say that this matter is related to the Celestial Tablet, and it may be a great opportunity for you. Before that, you just need to improve your cultivation as much as possible, otherwise your opportunity may become a disaster.” Facing Liu Ming’s question, Luo Hu waved his hand blankly and interrupted his words.
Then he didn’t wait for Liu Ming to ask anything more and disappeared in a blurred green light.
Liu Ming had long been accustomed to Luo Hu’s elusiveness.
However, the inexplicable words he said astounded Liu Ming greatly!
Liu Ming knew that Luo Hu would never have said such words for no reason. While feeling a slight pressure, he became more interested in that strange golden giant door.
After standing there for a while with a gloomy expression on his face, he sighed slightly, closed his eyes and returned to his cave house.
Liu Ming closed his eyes again and used Divine Thought to observe the Celestial Tablet in his body.
This tablet was the same as before, still floating quietly in the sea of consciousness.
After quietly observing it for a long time, he still couldn’t find the slightest abnormality, so he could only leave this behind temporarily.
In the following times, Liu Ming was reading a black jade slip in his hand. It was the last 6 levels of the Hell Bone Secret.
When he scanned with Divine Thought, he showed a wry smile on his face.
Speaking of which, the last 6 levels of the Hell Bone Secret, Liu Ming had already read it numerous times after stepping into the Crystallization Period later stage. He roughly understood the technique, but he had no way to cultivate them at all now.
Because the cultivation of the next 6 levels of the Hell Bone Secret actually required the hell river to cleanse his body, only then he could cultivate them.
But the hell river only existed in the deepest underworld in the legend, but he had no way to find it at this time.
According to the legend, this hell river ran through the deepest underworld. Not only the river water was extremely heavy, but it was also extremely cold. Whenever a person or a ghost went into the river, he would sink instantly and couldn’t float.
Now, no matter where the deepest underworld was, even after Liu Ming advanced to the Celestial State, it still depended on his chance whether he could find it.
It seemed that he suffered a lot from the deal he made with Qing Ling that day, but he could only dare to slander her like this now to comfort himself.
After all, in the face of Qing Ling, a Mystic Comprehending State powerhouse, whether he was trading willingly, it wouldn’t affect the final result at all.
Thinking of this, he could only shake his head with a wry smile, put the jade slip away and took out a silver bowl again.
Liu Ming flicked his fingers, and the bowl lid opened. A faint medicinal fragrance immediately filled the secret room.
⅓ of the silver bowl was filled with a faint purple lavender spiritual fluids. In the spiritual fluids, there was a golden talisman, which was the yellow turban soldier talisman.
His glanced at the talisman, then he took out the ancient yellow turban talisman book given by Qing Ling that day from the Sumeru Ring and put it on his forehead to read carefully.
While reading, he took a closer look at the contents in the silver bowl as if to compare with something.
After 10 minutes, Liu Ming slowly took down the classic and put it away again.
Speaking of which, when he looked through this ancient book a few years ago, he found that it recorded some mystic arts to refine the yellow turban soldier talisman, but the materials that were common in the ancient time had long extinct now. Even if he wanted to refine the second yellow turban talisman, it was probably impossible without any special opportunity.
Now the talisman soldiers of the major sects were completely different from the ancient yellow turban soldier described in this ancient book. The latter had been carefully cultivated and possessed spirituality on its own; it might have great potential to be discovered. The former was just a puppet that could only be controlled by Divine Thought.
However, in the last few pages of this book, there were several special mystic arts to use the yellow turban soldier. One of which was the mystic art of refining the yellow turban soldier into his avatar which was of great interest to Liu Ming.
TL: It’s rare to see Luo Hu being excited for something, hmm. What is behind that golden gate? Didn’t Qing Ling say that she will need Liu Ming’s help in the future? Maybe she will bring Liu Ming into the deepest underworld?
