At this time, Long Xuan’s face was bloodless. He put his hand around the wound that was bleeding heavily and was gasping. He couldn’t get up.
“Brother Long, do you want to continue?”
Liu Ming said and waved 1 hand. A golden sword light flew back into his hand and bounced slightly as if it was alive.
If they weren’t in a practice match right now and without the rules set by Ouyang Ying, his head would have been chopped down in the strike just now.
Long Xuan looked miserable, and he couldn’t say a word. His enlarged body returned to the original size like he was deflated. His aura also became very sluggish.
“I announce that Liu Ming won!”
In the midair, Ouyang Ying announced very decisively. At the same time, he looked at Liu Ming with a hint of surprise.
Obviously, in this match competition, he didn’t expect Liu Ming to execute his moves so cleanly.
As soon as Ouyang Ying announced, he launched a symbol into the enchantment on the platform.
After the enchantment flashed a few times, it dissipated on its own.
Hearing the words, Long Xuan glanced at Liu Ming with a grievance, then he flew away without saying a word.
Ouyang Xin, who was watching the battle, had a pale face. After talking a few words with Ouyang Family Master, he also flew toward the direction where Long Xuan left.
Ouyang Family Master kept assessing up and down at Liu Ming with a bright smile.
At this moment, Liu Ming had kept the Void Flying Sword back into the sword pouch, and he stroked it to conceal it. Then, he made a gesture. The green bull phantasm and the Beast Armor Tactic were withdrawn when he was descending to the platform.
“Brother Liu, congratulations!”
Ouyang Qian greeted him with a smile. Behind her, Quyang Qin, who was always indifferent, couldn’t restrain her excitement too.
As Long Xuan was defeated, the marriage with the Demon Mystic Sect could only be canceled. They didn’t have to marry Long Xuan anymore.
Liu Ming smiled slightly at the 2, then he bowed at Ouyang Jianqiu now far away.
“Hehe, Nephew Disciple Liu’s power really exceeds my expectations. You really deserve to be the top 1 at the Tianmen Convention.” Ouyang Family Master laughed and walked over slowly.
“Family master flatters me. With this superficial strength, any Real Pellet State disciple of the Ouyang Family is much stronger than me.” Liu Ming said modestly.
“Nephew disciple is too modest. Okay, let’s just stop here. Since Nephew Disciple Liu has won the competition, according to the agreement, you can naturally use the Clear Exquisite Wall once. Of course, you must first sign a contract to promise doing 1 thing for our Ouyang Family.” The Ouyang Family Master glanced at Ouyang Ying who had just flown over and said with a straight face.
“Thank you, senior!” Liu Ming was overjoyed when he heard the words, and he cupped his fist hurriedly.
“As for the following matters, I will leave it to Elder Ying to arrange it. Please make sure you satisfy Nephew Disciple Liu.” After the Ouyang Family Master smiled and instructed, he flew out of the valley in a purple light.
After the remaining 4 people on Xuanyuan Platform watched Ouyang Family Master left, they fell silent for a while.
Ouyang Ying looked up and down Liu Ming a few times, and he said with a smile,
“The last time I met Mr. Yin was more than 50 years ago. At that time, he had only a direct disciple named Xiao Wu. I didn’t expect that this old guy has accepted another talented disciple in the past few decades! “
“Elder Ying has overpraised. Before I came here, master asked me to greet you for him.” Liu Ming knew that Ouyang Ying and Yin Jiuling had an unusual relationship, so his tone was more respectful.
“The old guy Yin Jiuling wanted to remind me to not forget the original agreement right!” Ouyang Ying snorted softly, but there was not much malice in his tone.
Liu Ming smiled slightly, but he did not answer.
“Clear Exquisite Wall is ready to be used. When does Nephew Disciple Liu plan to use it?” Ouyang Ying asked after humming.
“I need 2 days to adjust my mentality, how about 3 days later?” Liu Ming thought for a while and said.
Although he was not injured in the battle with Long Xuan, his spiritual power was consumed a lot. Before entering Pseudo Pellet State, he still needed to adjust his state to the best.
“Alright! 3 days later, you will go directly to Exquisite Hall. I will arrange everything for you, but whether you can break through the Pseudo Pellet State bottleneck, it depends on you.” Ouyang Ying nodded.
“Understood, thank you.” Liu Ming naturally thanked him.
In the following time, after Ouyang Ying asked a few more about Yin Jiuling’s current situation, he also left.
Now, there were only Liu Ming and Ouyang Sisters on the Xuanyuan Platform.
“Thank you, Brother Liu, for defeating Long Xuan and helping us to avoid the catastrophe.” Ouyang Qian then bowed to Liu Ming and said very sincerely.
Quyang Qin was also grateful.
“You 2 are welcome. I was just helping myself.” Liu Ming wade his hand and replied.
“No matter what, our sisters owe Brother Liu a favor. If you need our help in the future, please do not hesitate to say it.” Ouyang Qian said seriously.
“This storage talisman is the reward promised to Brother Liu before.” Quyang Qin took out a storage talisman and handed it over.
Seeing this, Liu Ming took it and scanned with Divine Thought slightly.
There were indeed many things in the storage talisman. In addition to a green jade box and 2 superb spiritual weapons, there were also some upper grade precious ores, spiritual grass, and a small pile of spirit stones.
Adding up everything, the value was almost tens of millions of spirit stones, which was really a huge fortune for 2 Crystallization Period cultivators.
These ores were quite familiar to Liu Ming. They should be found in the Tianmen Secret Realm by them.
Liu Ming wasn’t excited about these things. He just took out the greed jade box. After opening it, it was a dark green elixir the size of a thumb. It exuded a mistlike green light, and its fragrance was refreshing.
“Could this be the clear soul pill?” Liu Ming squinted and asked.
“Yes, this is the unique elixir of our Ouyang Family. It can refine the soul power and increase the success rate of the advanced to the Pseudo Pellet State by about 10%.” Ouyang Qian looked a bit distressed for giving away the green elixir.
Although the clear soul pill was the unique elixir of the Ouyang Family, this pill was extremely difficult to refine. Even in the entire family, only a dozen elixirs could be produced every 100 years.
This clear soul pill was also obtained at a high price. She originally intended to take it when breaking through the Pseudo Pellet State’s bottleneck, but now it was in the hands of Liu Ming.
However, compared to marrying Long Xuan, this was not a big deal. After all, she still had some distance before hitting the Pseudo Pellet State’s bottleneck. She could get her hands on another elixir by then.
Liu Ming glanced at the elixir in his hand, nodded in satisfaction, and kept it into the Sumeru Ring.
With this pill, he must have a greater chance of successfully entering the Pseudo Pellet State period.
After Liu Min talked with them for a while and asked them about the location of the Exquisite Hall, he bade farewell to them.
He immediately returned to the Reception Pavilion and meditated behind closed doors, preparing to adjust his spiritual power to the best condition.
3 days had passed.
Near the edge of the Xuanmeng Mountain Range, there was a wonderful mountain peak covered with white snow all year round. Looking around, the mountain was full of towering ancient pines, making this mountain like a verdant jade pen that went directly to the sky. This was the Emerald Snow Peak of the 9 peaks and 9 Valleys in the Xuanmeng Mountain Range.
At the foot of the mountain, there was a green stone palace built next to the mountain. At this moment, Liu Ming in black was standing in front of this hall.
The palace was full of green light as if it was carved from a huge bluestone with magnificent momentum!
A plaque hung on the gate of the palace with 2 strong words “Exquisite Hall”.
Standing on the stone steps a few feet away from Exquisite Hall, he looked hesitant when looking at this palace.
This Exquisite Hall was 1 of the forbidden areas of the Ouyang Family, but he didn’t see a single guard on the way.
This made Liu Ming hesitant to step in rashly.
Just as he was considering whether to wait here for a while, the palace gate slowly opened, and a girl in a pale green robe walked out of it.
“Is sir Mr. Liu from Taiqing Sect? I was ordered by Elder Qingfeng to bring sir in.” The girl in a green robe asked politely after bowing politely.
“Yes, please lead the way.”
Liu Ming replied. It was the first time he saw a Ouyang Family’s disciple wearing a costume other than purple color, so he glanced at the girl longer.
As the girl in a green robe walked into the Exquisite Hall, he was quite surprised that it was just a hall with a simple layout. There was nothing more than a set of table and chairs.
“Mr. Liu, please stay here for a while. I will ask Elder Qingfeng to come out.” The girl in the green robe said, then she turned and walked toward a corridor next to the hall.
Liu Ming shrugged, walked to a chair and sat down, looking around the hall.
After about a quarter of an hour, the sound of footsteps came.
Liu Ming hurriedly stood up. When he turned around, an old man who was also wearing a green robe had entered the hall.
The man was small in stature, had a thin face, had gray hair and beard, and a goatee in his lower jaw. He looked like an ordinary old man.
“Taiqing Sect, Liu Ming greets senior.” Liu Ming only glanced once and hurriedly bowed.
