After inhaling so many spirits, the palm-sized yellow turban talisman also began to enlarge. When it reached the height of a person, it stopped in the air.
Seeing this situation, Liu Ming lifted his spirits and spat out a trace of pure spiritual power into the yellow turban talisman.
The yellow turban talisman emitted a bright golden light, and a vague human-shaped phantasm slowly emerged.
“Dash!” Liu Ming’s eyes condensed, and he launched a mysterious symbol that contained a spot of green light toward the golden talisman. It flashed and disappeared into the phantasm’s forehead.
The human-shaped phantasm trembled and emitted a dazzling golden light. After the golden light faded, the originally vague facial features trembled a few times, revealing a human expression.
Liu Ming launched a series of symbols again.
As a result, the human-shaped phantasm became more solid every time it absorbed a symbol. When Liu Ming stopped his gestures, the phantasm had already become translucent, and its face was vaguely similar to Liu Ming’s. It floated in the air motionlessly with its eyes closed. Its skin looked golden which seemed very textured.
Liu Ming saw this with a hint of joy in his eyes. He circled the yellow turban avatar. With a thought, he launched a symbol into the yellow turban avatar.
The next moment, the yellow turban avatar flashed with golden light. It opened its eyes abruptly. Its face was cold without any emotion, but there was a hint of agility in his eyes.
Liu Ming narrowed his eyes, and there was a faint illusion. At this moment, the yellow turban avatar seemed to have a strange connection with him.
After thinking about it for a moment, he suddenly made a gesture according to the book.
The yellow turban avatar snorted suddenly. Black gas rolled out all over its body, and it launched a punch at the cave wall across the distance.
Amidst the black gas, dragon and tiger roars were endless. 5 black mist dragons and 5 black mist tigers were condensed from the yellow turban avatar’s arms and were launched at the sturdy cave wall.
A burst of rumbling noise!
The sturdy cave wall shuddered violently in the rolling black gas like there was an earthquake. Large rocks and sand constantly fell down.
Seeing this, Liu Ming’s eyes flashed sharply. He tapped his forehead, and a small golden sword flashed out. It extended to 2 feet 8 inches in the air and exuded a faint golden light.
Liu Ming took the flying sword into his hand, then he thrust forward. Whoosh, a sword light blasted at the throat of the yellow turban avatar.
Facing Liu Ming’s sudden strike, the yellow turban avatar automatically moved back its head while retreating quickly, instantly dodging this slash. At the same, its arm shone in golden light as it turned into a golden shield, defending the sword light.
The golden shield was divided into 2 under the sword light.
This shield was transformed with spiritual power, so it naturally couldn’t stop the edge of the Void Sword. The yellow turban avatar flickered 10 meters away at this moment.
“Pa“, half of the shield fell to the ground.
“Not bad. It does have part of my strength, and its reaction speed is fast enough.” After Liu Ming laughed, he continued to attack. He kept away the Void Sword with a flash of golden light.
The yellow turban avatar bowed slightly toward Liu Ming. Half of the shield on the ground flashed, turned into a golden light and flew back toward its right arm. The golden liquid squirmed for a while, and it turned into a complete arm again.
Liu Ming was overjoyed when he saw this scene. He was truly satisfied now.
In the process of sacrificial refine, this clone was mixed with a precious material called “kun golden sand”, a special product of the southern wilderness, according to the methods recorded in the ancient book. It could make the avatar change like liquid and transform into any shape.
According to his estimation, this yellow turban avatar had about 60% of his spiritual power. This talisman had just been refined. The sub-soul that just merged into the talisman hadn’t completely mastered the body yet. After practicing for some time, its strength would be improved a little.
Of course, this yellow turban avatar couldn’t inherit his own physical strength and the additional treasures such as Void Sword, but even so, it was enough to make him look forward to it.
Liu Ming suppressed the joy in his heart and pointed at it; the yellow turban avatar turned back into a talisman that was absorbed into his body.
Refining this avatar consumed a lot of his vitality, especially the method of sacrificial refine needed to draw a little bit of his soul. Even if he had the help of the mind imitation insect, he was still overwhelmed.
In the following time, he immediately sat cross-legged on the ground and began to retreat, preparing to replenish the lost vitality.
2 months later.
The door of the secret room that had been closed for a long time opened suddenly, and Liu Ming walked out slowly.
After some rest, he finally recovered his vitality. He planned to immediately go to Xuan Hall to check the news about the void beastkin.
He greeted the girl and boy. After putting them back into the soul-recovering bag, he walked toward the cave house door.
As a result, as soon as Liu Ming walked out of the cave house and was about to fly, he suddenly turned his head and looked in a certain direction.
Only a moment later, the sky over there flashed, and 2 escape lights came quickly.
Seeing this, Liu Ming squinted slightly. Seeing this momentum, the escape lights were coming toward his cave house.
Two escape lights landed tens of meters in front of Liu Ming, stirring up a turbulence. 2 young men appeared.
At first, a person was wearing a flaming red robe; was about 28; looked handsome. There was a red light coming from his forehead, giving people an illusion that it was a fireball standing in front.
Although the other man was tall and thin, every muscle in his body was tight and strong like black iron. It seemed to contain strong explosive power.
“2 seniors are?” Liu Ming noticed the 2 were obviously hostile, but he still asked calmly.
“I’m Gu Yu of the Chaoyuan Peak, and this is Sima Chong of the Golden Light Peak.” The man in a red robe looked up and down and Liu Ming before saying with a grin.
The man in black clothes, Sima Chong, stared at Liu Ming with killing intent, but he did not immediately speak.
“Oh, its Senior Fellow Apprentice Gu and Senior Fellow Apprentice Sima, sorry for being disrespectful! I wonder if there is anything for you 2 to come to my cave house?” Liu Ming turned a blind eye to them, and he still asked indifferently.
“Are you Liu Ming from Fallen Serene Peak?” Sima finally said with a sneer.
“It’s me.” Liu Ming said calmly.
“Very well, we didn’t wait in vain. We came to you to tell you that you can hand over the quota for participating in the Tianmen Convention this time.” Sima Chong said coldly.
Liu Ming was startled at first, but he immediately smirked and assessed them with a strange gaze.
“Why, you want us to say it again? Tianmen Convention is such a grand event, it is useless to go with your cultivation. Tianmen Convention involves the prosperity and decline of our sect for hundreds of years in the future, how can you shoulder the responsibilities? Junior fellow apprentice better talk to Yin Jiuling to give up your slot.” Seeing Liu Ming’s expression, Gu Yu lightly snorted; his tone was full of indisputable meaning.
Liu Ming felt a little funny!
Based on his understanding of this convention, he had expected that some people would be dissatisfied with his participation in this convention. However, he did not expect that someone would take the initiative to come to his cave house and ask him to hand over his slot.
Thinking of this, Liu Ming said with a spurious smile,
“I’m afraid I’m going to disappoint 2 seniors. I’m nominated by the sect master to participate in the Tianmen Convention, so I can’t quit. If there’s nothing else, please leave. I still have some matters to deal with, so I will leave first.” Liu Ming cupped his fist and wanted to walk away from them.
When Gu Yu and Sima Chong heard this, their faces became gloomy.
“Stop, I haven’t finished speaking, don’t think about leaving! Don’t expect to use the sect to threaten us! Only those with strength can talk in Taiqing Sect. As long as I defeat you, I don’t believe that the sect will insist on letting you go to the Tianmen Convention! In a word, give or not give!” The man in a robe sneered. His figure shook, and he stood in front of Liu Ming again.
Liu Ming frowned slightly. Just as he was about to say something, the man in a red robe jumped up into the sky and made a gesture. A bloodshot rune appeared on his forehead, and a flame light was emitted from his body. A scorching airwave spread out. The surrounding space began to have waves of faint red ripples.
With a rumbling sound, the heat waves condensed into a huge fire cloud with a radius of more than 100 meters. Gu Yu’s figure disappeared into the cloud; at the same time an astonishing aura pressed down at Liu Ming from the sky.
“The blazing sun physique, no wonder you are so arrogant.” Liu Ming raised his head and narrowed his eyes, nodded slightly, and stood motionless. He wasn’t moved by Gu Yu’s shocking spiritual pressure.
Seeing this situation in midair, Gu Yu was furious. He suddenly shouted as he launched waves of red lights into the fire cloud.
With the continuous influx of flame spirit, the fire cloud soared to the size of acres. Its color also changed from orange to dark red. The edge also emitted a dazzling white light too.
A deafening blast!
The fire cloud rolled for a while, and a flame python suddenly came out from it.
The giant python was 300 meters long. It had huge dark red scales with flames all over its body. It had 2 coral horns on its head. The 2 eyes seemed like 2 burning flames, making it look ferocious.
Seeing this, Sima retreated far away, looking at Liu Ming with eyes full of coldness.
He knew very well that Gu Yu’s mystic arts were different from the ordinary secret method of condensing fire into a beast. The fire python was filled with pure sun flames. With a burst of flames, even the superb spiritual weapon could be melted. He wouldn’t believe that Liu Ming could withstand this fire python’s blow.
TL: He has tons of defensive skills to deal with this fire python, not to mention dispelling this fire python and fire cloud…
