Liu Ming’s shoulders were covered with a mysterious green light; a lifelike green bull phantasm roared and flashed into his body.
At the critical moment, he launched Che Huan’s totem to devour the lightnings that were about to strike him.
Although Liu Ming looked devastated, he didn’t suffer much damage. With a flash of black light, he continued flying far away.
Soon after Liu Ming got up, Thunder Beastkin flew up amidst the roar.
He looked ferociously at Liu Ming and launched a palm.
The buzzing sound came!
With the flash of purple light, a giant palm of 250 meters was condensed above Liu Ming. Countless thunder snakes could be seen roaming on the palm. It pressed at him with an astonishing aura.
Liu Ming released black gas around him, then it dispersed with a muffled sound.
With a low groan, 4 identical figures escaped in different directions.
Although there were only 4 figures, their spirit power fluctuations and their movements were all the same. What’s more, they were moving swiftly. They left a trail of afterimages which confused Thunder Beastkin’s senses.
Although the giant palm’s range was large, it couldn’t cover all the 4 figures in it.
Thunder Beastkin’s eyes suddenly showed a trace of anxiety. Even he couldn’t see through the realistic phantasms that Liu Ming cast.
The giant purple palm leaned to the southeast, then it grabbed 2 phantasms and turned them into black gas after a flash of purple light.
The other 2 black phantasms merged again in mid-air, then Liu Ming who reappeared secretly sighed a relief.
After that, he made a gesture and performed the sword flying technique again.
Before Liu Ming could escape far away, another huge palm the size of an acre chased him down and struck him.
The airflow around the giant palm caused the stone forest below to collapse one after another. Even the tall mountain trembled.
Liu Ming launched a symbol without looking back. The sword phantasm below emitted white starlight.
Liu Ming turned into a golden sword light and narrowly escaped from the palm strike.
A loud noise came!
On the ground of the stone forest, there was a palm print the size of an acre.
As the air flow pushed behind, Liu Ming’s escape light went faster. He flew for 30 meters in the blink of an eye.
Thunder Beastkin roared furiously before hurriedly chasing after him.
After a while, Liu Ming was once again forced into the depths of a huge mountain range by Thunder Beastkin.
The mountain peaks here reached into the clouds, almost obstructing half of the sky. Liu Ming had no way to run unless he used the earth escape talisman to dive into the ground.
However, Celestial State’s power was intangible, so diving into the ground could only make him die faster.
In this moment of thinking, Thunder Beastkin had already gotten close with rumbling whistling sounds. As he groaned, a purple lightning rose up with a burst of crackling sound!
The purple lightning condensed into a 300 meters huge purple fist that charged at Liu Ming from a distance.
Seeing that he couldn’t escape, he turned around and channeled Dragon Tiger Hell Prison power to the extreme. The black gas condensed into a substantial black vortex that wrapped around his body.
The black vortex instantly grew to the size of 300 meters as the roars of dragons and tigers came from the center. It hit the surrounding mountain walls with strong wind, making a loud swoosh sound.
There was a burst of shout from the vortex, and a huge fist filled with black gas was launched at the giant purple fist.
However, even if Liu Ming had gathered all his spiritual power, the black fist shadow he condensed was totally incomparable to the giant purple fist.
After a loud noise, the 2 fists collided in the air!
The black fist shadow suddenly collapsed, and the black vortex also disappeared instantly. Liu Ming was knocked out of it. He spouted several mouthfuls of blood.
A hint of sarcasm flashed in Thunder Beastkin’s eyes. He lifted 1 hand, and the giant purple fist grabbed Liu Ming.
As the giant palm was about to get him, bursts of golden sword light emerged and wrapped his body.
He turned into a stream of golden light that escaped from the gap of the purple palm.
The golden light stream appeared behind Thunder Beastkin in a flash, and it was about to entangle his body.
Thunder Beastkin was startled, but he also reacted extremely fast. After shaking his arms, a purple light curtain immediately emerged from his body.
A burst of tinkling sound came as the golden light stream hit the purple light curtain, causing slight ripples on it.
A trace of anger flashed in Thunder Beastkin’s eyes. As the purple lightning flashed again, a giant purple phantasm with an ape face and 4 giant arms emerged behind him.
Thunder Beastkin suddenly released the phantasm aspect, and the 4 huge arms grabbed Liu Ming relentlessly.
Liu Ming was shocked. He immediately changed direction and flew far away.
Thunder Beastkin shouted angrily; the phantasm aspect flashed, blocked before the golden light stream and waved 4 arms at it.
Liu Ming tried his best to barely escape the capture of the 2 giant palms, but he was finally caught by the 3rd palm.
The golden sword light cracked with a muffled sound, he was crushed into a shower of blood and burst open.
With a flash of light, Liu Ming’s figure reappeared in the mysterious space. Although his aura remained the same, his face obviously looked a little tired.
He had been killed by Thunder Beastkin many times, but this time, he had obviously improved a lot.
Now, he was unaffected by the pressure of the Celestial State’s aura, and the time he could persist was longer and longer.
At the same time, after his Three Shadowy Mirages Technique had reached the perfect stage, it could already trick the enemy with seemingly real phantasms. Even Thunder Beastkins, a Celestial State powerhouse, couldn’t distinguish the real or fake in the split second.
Of course, the fake was fake after all. Only if the Celestial State cultivator took it seriously, it would still be seen through. However, this moment of hesitation was enough in actual combat.
After thinking for a while, Liu Ming ate a golden yuan pill and sat cross-legged. He planned to practice again in the illusion after recovering his mental power.
Time passed year after year.
On this day, Liu Ming was meditating in a mysterious space to restore spiritual power.
Suddenly, the surrounding space fluctuated together, and the scene slowly became blurred.
With a buzz, he had found himself back in the secret room of his cave house.
Xie’er and Fei’er also appeared beside him, holding his sleeves on both sides.
After Liu Ming looked around, he sighed inexplicably.
As soon as he spoke, there was a sudden shock in the Spiritual Sea. A small transparent bubble emerged and released a stream of pure spiritual power into the 153 spiritual power crystals.
Liu Ming was astounded. He immediately closed his eyes and meditated, silently accepting the pure spiritual power from the mysterious bubble.
Xie’er and Fei’er were naturally no strangers to this scene. They immediately waited silently.
After a full hour, Liu Ming let out a sigh of relief and slowly opened his eyes.
In the Spiritual Sea, after the mysterious bubble flashed, it disappeared without a trace again.
Liu Ming felt that his spiritual power was much more refined than before, but his cultivation had dropped from the Crystallization Period later stage to the intermediate stage.
But this was nothing. He just had to cultivate behind closed doors while taking elixir, then his spiritual power would be quickly replenished. It would have much impact on advancing into the Pseudo Pellet State period.
However, his body was still extremely weak. His vitality could be recovered through elixirs, but his lifespan could no longer be restored. Unless he could find the rare elixirs that prolonged lifespan.
Thinking of this, Luo Hu’s words came to his mind again, making his mouth feel bitter again.
Advanced to the Real Pellet State in 60 years! Now it seemed that he had only one way.
But before that, he still planned to go to the Scriptures Pavilion to see if there were other ways to deal with the loss of vitality and lifespan.
After Liu Ming made up his mind, he did not leave immediately. After instructing the 2 spiritual pets to practice in the stone chamber, he continued to retreat and consume yun spirit pills.
Half a year later, Liu Ming’s cultivation had finally recovered to the Crystallization Period later stage again, and his vitality had also been restored.
After he realized that there was no problem with his body, he immediately got up and left the secret room, went to the stone chamber next door to check the cultivation situation of Xie’er and Fei’er.
The 2 spiritual pets were being wrapped in a large amount of yin qi like a whirlpool. The yin qi was as dark as ink and as solid as mercury. There was a layer of white frost on the ground.
Liu Ming was delighted to see this. He didn’t bother them and left the cave house.
TL: The pets are advancing again? What will his aspect be when he reaches the Celestial State?
