Liu Ming slapped the sword pouch on his waist, and a light silver light flashed on the sword pouch. It absorbed all the spiritual medicines and herbs into it.
Immediately afterward, he tapped his forehead, and the Void Sword of 2 feet 8 inches appeared with a flash of golden light. It turned into a golden light and flew into the sword pouch.
He whispered and launched symbols at the sword pouch with both hands.
He applied a seal on the sword pouch so that the Void Sword could slowly be nurtured in it. When it was released to fight an enemy, the sword pouch would naturally increase the power by a lot.
Liu Ming shouted again. The sword pouch flashed with silver light, then it loomed and disappeared on his waist.
This was another special feature of the void attribute sword pouch, which could conceal itself at will with the help of spatial attributes.
In this case, the enemy wouldn’t know his killing move beforehand. This advantage alone was self-evident.
After doing all this, Liu Ming finally couldn’t support it, and he immediately walked into the bedroom and fell asleep.
After 3 days, Liu Ming woke up again.
|The physical and mental exhaustion for 6 months in a row was finally cleared.
Liu Ming first went to the stone chamber where Xie’er and Fei’er were located and talked to them slightly. He got to know that their cultivation had improved by a lot through consuming elixirs. They would soon reach the peak of the Crystallization Period.
With the previous opportunities, Xie’er and Fei’er now had the blood of the sky beastkin and the ancient giant demon. In terms of cultivation speed alone, it seemed to be faintly above Liu Ming.
Liu Ming was naturally very pleased with this.
After all, once Xie’er and Fei’er really reach the Pseudo Pellet State world, it would be a great boost in his combat strength.
Next, he walked to the cave house lobby and removed the cave house enchantments.
As soon as the enchantments disappeared, about 18 light clusters of different colors flashed in from outside the cave house.
Liu Ming was slightly startled, but when he fixed his eyes, he smiled helplessly.
These were all the sound transmission talismans sent by the sect during this period of time.
Since Liu Ming came back from Tianmen Secret Realm, he was already famous among the inner disciples of the Taiqing Sect. The people who came to visit him were 10 times more than before.
This was why he must turn on the cave house’s enchantments before he retreated.
He shook his head and took these sound transmission talismans into his hand.
At the next moment, Liu Ming stood there and checked the sound transmission talisman one by one in a calm manner.
Unsurprisingly, most of these sound transmission talismans were left by the inner disciple who came to visit. Most of the letters were polite, all expressing the hint of befriending him. Some even invited him to cultivate together.
Seeing these contents, Liu Ming rolled his eyes secretly. He would not have any interest in them.
It was just that Liu Ming had an indescribable feeling to not see Jia Lan’s letter among them.
Liu Ming shook his head and got rid of these thoughts, then he thought about the mysterious space again.
It had been almost 32 years since the last mysterious small bubble appeared.
Now his cultivation had reached the Crystallization Period later stage, so it was clearly impossible for him to make another breakthrough in a short time.
However, he could deal with another matter now.
Previously, the sect commended him for his contributions in the Tianmen Convention. He was rewarded with 3 million contribution points, and he got a lot of rare medicinal materials and elixirs from Tianmen Secret Realm and Golden Jade Sect. If he handed them to the sect, he should be able to get a lot of contribution points. Together with the contribution points he had, it should be able to accumulate 4 million contribution points.
So, he spent a few days sorting the Sumeru Ring again. He separated some medicinal materials and elixirs that he thought were not useful, but they were considered a treasure, then he traded them at the Precious Hall. Finally, he accumulated 4 million contribution points.
Afterward, he went to the law enforcement hall and finally paid off all the contribution points owed for practicing Dragon Tiger Hell Prison and Tai Gang Sword Tactics. The worry he had in mind was resolved finally.
In the following time, Liu Ming spent more than 10 days visiting markets in and out of the sect. He collected about 10 portions of materials for the jingang bone tempering pill formula obtained from Feng Qingmo. He was ready to study them the next time he went into the mysterious space.
Speaking of which, besides the rare main material of the jingang bone tempering pill, the luwu turtle shell, the other auxiliary materials were not difficult to find.
It was also a coincidence that the luwu turtle shell had a small piece in Feng Qingmo’s storage bracelet. He must be looking for someone to refine this elixir after getting the formula. This small piece was only enough for refining 10 portions. Even a pellet grade could hardly be refined in the end.
But for Liu Ming, who was about to enter the mysterious space, it was enough.
After he had done all this, he activated all enchantments in the cave house, summoned Fei’er and Xie’er to his side, and then began to stay in retreat, quietly waiting for the mysterious bubble to appear again.
2 months passed in a flash.
On this day, Liu Ming was sitting cross-legged in the center of the secret room with his eyes closed; Fei’er and Xie’er were sitting on the left and right of him. They were also sitting cross-legged to adjust their breath.
Suddenly, he frowned and released Divine Thought to check his Spiritual Sea. A translucent bubble slowly emerged in it.
Liu Ming sighed and muttered to himself.
Seeing this, Fei’er and Xie’er, who were also sitting cross-legged, quickly stood up and grabbed one of Liu Ming’s sleeves.
The translucent bubble in the Spiritual Sea trembled slightly, and a powerful suction was suddenly launched.
Liu Ming quickly channeled the 153 spiritual power crystals in the Spiritual Sea to let this bubble absorb the spiritual power.
However, the next moment, Liu Ming’s face changed slightly.
This time, the small transparent bubble seemed to have changed. It sucked the spiritual power fiercely like a bottomless black hole, far exceeding the previous few times.
Liu Ming was naturally shocked. But at this moment, he couldn’t care much. He could only channel spiritual power to let the bubble absorb. At the same time, he prayed that he could pass this stage with his pure spiritual power.
Half an hour passed in a flash!
At this moment, the spiritual power in Liu Ming’s body was less than half, but the devouring speed of the small bubble had not slowed down at all.
But Liu Ming’s face had already turned pale.
Fei’er and Xie’er, who were standing on both sides, apparently found something wrong. They glanced at each other with worry, but they didn’t dare to act rashly. They could only wait anxiously.
As time passed bit by bit, the spiritual power in Liu Ming’s body gradually bottomed out, and his face became more and more ugly.
It was a pity that even though he knew it was bad, he had no way to stop it.
He initially thought that his spiritual power would be enough for the bubble absorption after reaching the Crystallization Period later stage. Now, it seemed that he was over optimistic.
During this period, Fei’er on the side wanted to speak several times, but he was stopped by Xie’er on the other side each time.
Although Xie’er was also anxious, she still believed in her master.
On the contrary, if they intervened and caused other accidents to happen, it was even more unforgivable!
After a dozen minutes later, Liu Ming only felt that his Spiritual Sea sank, and the last trace of spiritual power was swallowed up.
There was a sudden chill in his heart. He almost imagined himself being sucked dry in his mind.
But just as his spiritual power was exhausted, the devouring of the translucent bubble finally slowed down.
At the next moment, he only felt cold in his body. His body was led by an invisible force into the bubble. In addition, there was a warm current in his body that was being devoured by the translucent bubble.
Liu Ming smiled bitterly in his mind. This feeling was still fresh in his memory. It represented the rapid passing of his lifespan.
Streams of blood and lifespan flowed into the bubble. If someone was here, he could see that although Liu Ming’s face looked as usual, his aura was getting weaker and weaker. His black hair also gradually turned gray.
“No, master seems to be unable to hold it anymore!” Seeing this, Fei’er finally couldn’t help but yell out.
“Let’s wait and see…” Xie’er’s face changed a few times, but she still persisted.
At almost the same time, Liu Ming felt a muffled poof sound in his body, and the passing speed of his lifespan suddenly slowed down.
Liu Ming, who originally thought he would die for sure, was slightly startled at first, but a hint of ecstasy appeared in his eyes.
In this way, after a dozen minutes, the devour of the bubble finally stopped abruptly.
Liu Ming was relieved finally.
This time, even though he lost a lot of vitality and blood, he did not die because of it.
As soon as he relaxed, he suddenly fainted.
When Liu Ming woke up, he was already in the gray space.
It turned out that when he fainted, he had already unknowingly entered the mysterious space.
“Master, you are awake!” Fei’er and Xie’er’s voices came into his ears simultaneously.
He turned over and sat up, still feeling dizzy in his mind. He used Divine Thought to check his body, and he made a wry smile.
Just a short while, his blood was absorbed more than half and his lifespan was also lost for hundreds of years.
“Master, your hair…” The girl in black tulle squatted halfway in front of Liu Ming. She was happy, but after looking at Liu Ming’s hair, she said cautiously.
Fei’er on the other side was also worried.
TL: The bubble is sucking harder and harder. He may not survive the next bubble absorption…
