“Yes… junior is really insensible. I don’t know senior is a Real Pellet State. The amethyst marten, my… my friend will send it over 3 days later. Senior just have to come here to take it. The price is only… 600,000 spirit stones. However, the Crystallization Period…” The muscular man almost collapsed on the ground and said tremblingly, but he raised the price by a lot.
“Spirit stone is not a problem. As for the Crystallization Period junior, let him come to me. But if you lie to me, I will chase you even to the end of the world.” After the cultivator in white clothes finished speaking, he flicked his sleeve and left the shop.
The muscular man staggered while standing up, and he wiped the cold sweat from his forehead.
He had been doing business in this small market for more than 10 years, and he had seen a lot of high rank cultivators, but this was his first time seeing a Real Pellet State cultivator that made him feel so dreadful.
But after all, he was considered a well-informed person. After a while, he had recovered from the shock.
With this Real Pellet State powerhouse as the backer, he naturally no longer cared about what Liu Ming said earlier.
A few days later, Liu Ming came to the Hundred Hunt Shop again as scheduled.
As soon as he stepped into the shop, he saw the muscular man greeted him and said hurriedly,
“Senior, you are late… Just about half an hour ago, a senior in white clothes suddenly came to the store and requested an amethyst marten. I told him that there was only one, and it had already been reserved by you. Who knows that this senior in white clothes wants to forcibly take away the amethyst marten.”
When the muscular man spoke of this, his face was full of helplessness.
Liu Ming was slightly startled when he heard the words, but a cold aura rolled out as his face turned grim.
The muscular man shivered and hurriedly took out a purple talisman, giving it to him,
“But senior, I did something on the amethyst marten. This amethyst talisman is made by my friend. It was crafted just in case the amethyst marten runs away. It has a drop of blood of the amethyst marten. This talisman can sense it within thousands of miles. The person just left for half an hour. With senior’s ability, you may be able to catch up with this person.”
“Hmph, you have a lot of fail safes! If this talisman is effective, it’s fine. If I don’t find the person, you should pray for yourself.”
Liu Ming glanced at the muscular man, then he took the purple talisman, made this remark and walked out.
“How dare I deceive senior…” The muscular man’s words hurriedly explained for himself.
Liu Ming snorted in his mind, and he flew away immediately.
Right now was not the time to care about this muscular man. The most important thing was to find the amethyst marten first.
In mid-air, he released spiritual power into the purple talisman.
Suddenly, the entire talisman shone with purple light, then it turned into an arrow that pointed toward the east of the mountain range.
Liu Ming naturally understood what this meant, and he immediately moved toward the direction.
Inside the shop, the muscular man faintly felt that Liu Ming had left, so he hurriedly closed the shop and left the market quietly.
After 10 minutes, Liu Ming followed the guidance of the talisman and came to a street in the center of the market.
At the end of the street, in front of a large-scale shop that sold array equipment, Liu Ming flashed in and saw the cultivator who fit the description of the muscular man.
Sure enough, this person was dressed in white, looking at a set of array equipment in the shop with relish.
Liu Ming released his Divine Thought, and his heart sank slightly. The opponent turned out to be at the Real Pellet State early stage, but his aura was a little unstable. He seemed to have just advanced not long ago.
“Shopkeeper, I’ll take all of these now. Pack them up first. Someone will come to pay and pick up the goods later. I have a friend looking for me now.”
At this moment, the cultivator in white robes seemed to perceive Liu Ming’s intention. He glanced at him, put down the equipment with a change of expression and said unhurriedly.
Liu Ming squinted, and he wasn’t too surprised. He said unceremoniously.
“It seems that mister knows why I’m here. If that is the case, then hand over the amethyst marten.”
“Am I blind? A Crystallization Period dares to be so arrogant? However, I’m not a bully. I have a great use for amethyst marten. When I finish using it, you can come to me again.” The cultivator in white clothes was slightly startled, then he burst into laughter.
“Give it to me when you’re done. You think I’m a 3 years old kid?” Liu Ming was moved in his heart, but he replied calmly.
“Oh? Looks like you seem unwilling.” The cultivator in white clothes kept away his smile and took a step forward suddenly.
“Boom“, the terrifying aura of the Real Pellet State immediately rolled out of the cultivator in white clothes.
The shelves with items on both sides of the shop were affected. They emitted colorful light curtain and shattered one after another.
Although the shopkeeper and the 2 staffs didn’t face the aura directly, they still hurriedly backed away in shock.
Liu Ming only raised his brow facing such a terrifying aura. After a black gas rolled out, he resisted the pressure as if nothing had happened.
Seeing this, the cultivator in white clothes was slightly shocked. After taking another glance at Liu Ming, he snorted and said,
“I was wondering why are you so bold. It turns out that you are also a Real Pellet State cultivator. Your means of hiding aura is quite mysterious. Even I was deceived by you.”
“Regardless of whether I’m Real Pellet State or not, I need an explanation for you stealing the amethyst marten that I booked first.” Liu Ming was expressionless.
“Explanation! Very good, let’s do it this way. At this time tomorrow, how about you and I have a match at the Baixi Peak 50 miles away. If you win, I will give up this amethyst marten.” After the cultivator in white clothes’ eyes turned slightly, he suddenly said with a sneer.
“Baixi Peak!” Liu Ming’s eyes flashed.
“Don’t worry, I’m not a person without a background. I will never ruin my name and sneak away. Besides, since you can track me here, you must have a way to find me again. Shopkeeper, this is the compensation for the damage in your store.” After the cultivator in white clothes added nonchalantly, he threw an upper grade crystal stone to the shopkeeper and walked out the door swaggeringly.
Liu Ming coldly watched the person leave, but he didn’t mean to stop him. After thinking for a while, he made an apologetic smile to the shopkeeper and left the shop.
He returned to the inn and took out the purple talisman again. After checking that it still had a reaction, he immediately meditated in the room to rest.
In the early morning of the second day, on one side of a huge mountain dozens of miles away, Liu Ming was thousands of feet high in the air. He was faintly watching the sky on the other side of the mountain.
This cultivator in white clothes also arrived as scheduled, but what Liu Ming did not expect was that this man didn’t come alone. There was another old man in a golden robe who was slightly fat and looked about 40 years old.
Although the old man was only at the Real Pellet State early stage, from the faint aura that radiated from his body, he was obviously much stronger than the cultivator in white clothes.
“I’m here to fight for the ownership of the amethyst marten with you, but you invite another person. What do you mean by this?” Liu Ming asked with a coldness in his eyes.
“Mister must have misunderstood. I’m only accompanying young sect master to watch the battle. I will not intervene in your match.” The fat old man chuckled lightly, then he retreated to the top of another mountain in a flash and sat cross-legged.
“Young sect master?” Liu Ming frowned when he heard the old man called the cultivator in white clothes.
“Since everyone has arrived, there is no need to talk nonsense, let this battle determine the ownership of the amethyst marten.” The white cultivator snorted coldly, then he raised his arm and released a white light.
In the white light was a milky white flying needle spiritual weapon with a faint crystal light. It could faintly be seen that the spirit patterns were at least 30 layers. It was a superb spiritual weapon.
Liu Ming’s face turned gloomy. He channeled his spiritual power, then a warm current flowed into his hand as he lifted 1 finger.
A golden spiral sword qi was launched from the fingertip. It flashed and hit the flying needle in the white light.
With a loud noise, a cluster of golden-white light ball burst apart in the air, causing circles of air waves to roll away.
“Sure enough, you are not an ordinary Crystallization Period cultivator. This is interesting.”
When the cultivator in white clothes saw this, a hint of excitement appeared on his face.
As he waved his sleeve, a white mist dissipated the billowing air waves. He lifted another arm at the same time.
With a few “swoosh“, more than a dozen white lights were launched. They flew through the air like thread toward Liu Ming.
This man used so many superb flying needle spiritual weapons as a one-time consumption spiritual weapon. Liu Ming saw this fighting style for the first time, and he was immediately stunned.
However, Liu Ming had a lot of combat experience. He raised his hand, and a small yellow shield appeared before him, then it became tens of meters in size.
After another flash, a yellow hill phantasm was faintly visible on the surface of the huge shield.
The next moment, a burst of crackling sound kept coming from the hill phantasm, and the Thick Earth Shield also trembled slightly.
TL: I bet the old man will intervene when things go bad…
