“Black Phoenix Fairy, the intermediate stage of the Crystallization Period. She is an evil cultivator on the surface, but she is actually a disciple of the Murong Family, 1 of the 8 great families. She teamed up with another Crystallization Period accomplice to severely injure a Real Pellet State of the Lingyin Peak. The reward is 800,000 contribution points.”
“This woman was originally ranked second on the outer door life and death list, but since she advanced to the Crystallization Period decades ago, she is naturally not suitable to be listed on the outer door life and death list.” The man in a gray robe explained lightly.
Liu Ming nodded.
He had fought against this woman at Tianmen Secret Realm. Since her cultivation had advanced greatly and she had a lot of tricks, it wasn’t really easy to deal with her.
After looking back and forth on this woman’s name for a long time, he finally looked away.
Although he was tempted by these 800,000 contribution points, he also knew that Black Phoenix Fairy was not only the ordinary disciple of the Murong Family, but she also seemed to be a core disciple. Not to mention killing it, even finding her would be a problem. What’s more, her brother wasn’t simple as well.
“These evil cultivators are powerful figures. Not only are their cultivations high and strong, but their whereabouts are extremely erratic. If you try to find them on your own, I’m afraid that you may not be able to find one in 10 years.” The man in a gray robe suddenly changed the topic.
“Please give me some pointers, sir.” Liu Ming heard the words, put down the scroll in his hand, and cupped his fist.
“Most of these people have harmed the disciples of our sect, so the sect has been sending people to investigate the whereabouts of these evil cultivators. If you really want to earn contribution points from the life and death list, I suggest you choose the evil cultivators whose approximate whereabouts are known. ‘ The man in a gray robe offered a suggestion.
“If so, that would be great.” Liu Ming was overjoyed.
Although he could also go to the Big Dipper Pavilion to inquire about the whereabouts of these evil cultivators, he still remembered the painful lesson of Withered Bone Monk.
Big Dipper Pavilion was basically doing two-way business. He bought news from them, and they would sell his news to those evil cultivators immediately.
He was currently wanted by the Demon Mystic Sect. If he took 1 step out of the Big Dipper Pavilion, there would be swarms of evil cultivators coming to take his life.
So, he didn’t want to deal with the Big Dipper Pavilion if he didn’t have to.
“The sect can only provide a small part of the information of the evil cultivators, and its validity cannot be guaranteed. Everything is up to you.” The man in a gray robe nodded slightly.
“Thank you for your pointers. I wonder which evil cultivators have been found by the sect?” Liu Ming thanked him, then he asked immediately.
The man in a gray robe raised his shoulder, the yellow hair ball on it shrugged slightly and looked up. It was really a yellow civet cat.
This cat had a huge head and a small body, which looked very uncoordinated. It had 2 eyes, 1 red and 1 yellow. It glanced lazily at Liu Ming.
Liu Ming frowned. When the cat’s eyes looked over, he had a strange feeling, but it was fleeting.
The man in the gray robe stretched out his hand and patted the yellow civet cat on the head lightly. The yellow cat narrowed its eyes and let out a meow, then it spat out a yellow ball of light.
“Pop“, the light ball shattered and turned into a light curtain with dense small characters appearing on it.
“There are only these 7 people for now.” The man in a gray robe said indifferently.
Liu Ming gave the yellow civet cat a surprised look, then he glanced at the light curtain.
There was information about 7 evil cultivators; their cultivation bases, their origins, their whereabouts, etc., were recorded in considerable detail.
These 7 people were all at the bottom of the life and death list. 4 Crystallization Period later stages, 1 Pseudo Pellet State stage, and the remaining 2 were Real Pellet State cultivation.
“Thank you senior, I have already noted the details.” Liu Ming remembered the information on the light curtain in his mind, nodded and said.
“By the way, a reminder. The rules here are the same as the outer door. Remember to bring back the evil cultivator’s head.” After the man in a gray robe finished speaking. He yawned, lay down on the table and fell asleep again.
“Goodbye.” Seeing this, Liu Ming cupped his fist and flew out of the hall.
In the hall, the yellow civet cat jumped lightly onto the stone platform, then it walked on it. The man in a gray robe suddenly opened his eyes, reached out and stroked it. He muttered to himself,
“It had been 3 years until someone comes to accept the bounty. I hope this disciple has some ability and doesn’t lose his life in vain… At least bring back a head, otherwise I really can’t explain it to the sect.”
A month later.
In a vast mountain range more than 30,000 miles away from Thousands Spirit Mountain Range, there was a small market built on a ridge.
At this time, at the entrance of the market, a slender figure covered in gray hurriedly walked out.
This person’s head and body were tightly wrapped in gray cloth. His face couldn’t be seen clearly, only revealing a pair of sharp eyes. After looking around quickly, he turned into a gray escape light that went far away.
More than 30 miles after leaving the market, above a dense forest, the gray escape light suddenly stopped, burst apart and disappeared.
After a long time, a circle of ripples appeared in the forests below. A man in gray clothes appeared out of nowhere, and he glanced around suspiciously.
The forests were silent, and the sounds of insects and birds could be heard endlessly, which looked completely peaceful.
“Did I see wrongly?” The man in gray clothes mumbled at ease, then he was about to leave.
The next moment, the man’s face suddenly changed. He shook his shoulders, and his figure suddenly became elusive as he blasted away.
With a sharp tearing sound, a sharp black light flashed in the air, passing through the body of the man in gray clothes as quickly as thunder.
A flash of bloody light!
In a flash of gray light, the man in gray clothes appeared more than 30 meters away. There was a long and narrow wound on his chest. Blood was gushing out of it, staining his clothes in an instant.
He was lucky to react quickly, otherwise this slash would hit his heart.
The man in gray clothes glared at the spot he stood before in shock and fury.
There was already another man in a green shirt. His face was browned and looked sick, and his body was wrapped in strands of black gas.
“Who are you? Why did you ambush me?” The man in gray asked in a cold voice. At the same time, he gently rubbed his hand on the wound on his chest, and a trace of gray gas wrapped around the wound and stopped the bleeding.
“Taoist Evil Moon, the core disciple of the Sky Shadow Demon Sect, robbed and killed 3 Taiqing Sect’s inner disciples in Long Gorge outside of Nanlong Lake Market 15 years ago, and you raped and murdered another Taiqing Sect’s inner female disciple 11 years ago in Po State City, am I right?” The man in a green shirt said lightly.
“Hmph, Taiqing Sect’s people, you want my head for the bounty? Hehe, let’s see if you have the ability!” Although the man in gray was injured, he seemed to be very confident as he sneered instead.
The man in a green shirt was naturally Liu Ming. According to the information provided by the sect, he spent more than half a month and finally found the trace of the Taoist Evil Moon and followed him all the way.
Hearing this, Liu Ming smiled, turned around and launched a golden sword qi from his hand, hitting a place where no one was visible.
“Bang!” A muffled sound came out!
A figure flashed in the air, and another figure with the same appearance staggered out.
The gray cloth wrapped around him was shattered, revealing the thin figure. His face was full of astonishment.
At the same time, the man in gray clothes, who was standing still in front of him, turned into a puff of gray air and vanished.
“The Sky Shadow Demon Sect’s phantasm technique is really interesting, but it’s a pity, if you are a Real Pellet State cultivator, you might be able to deceive me. Now, this phantasm trick is useless to me!” Liu Ming smirked, then he made a gesture, and the black gas turned into a black mist dragon that charged at the opponent.
The mist dragon reached the back of Taoist Evil Moon in almost a flash.
Taoist Evil Moon shouted. He pointed with 1 hand, and a black light blasted out and turned into a disc shape, barely blocking the mist dragon.
The mist dragon hit on the black light, and rolling black gas spread wildly in all directions. They seemed evenly matched.
In the black light, it was a disc-shaped gear. As it spun at high speed, it emitted a buzzing sound and dazzling light. Although Taoist Evil Moon cast it in a hurry, this superb spiritual weapon looked quite powerful.
Although the black mist dragon released by Liu Ming was transformed by spiritual power, it was lifelike and very solid. Although the black light gear seemed to have forced back the mist dragon, it couldn’t really slice the mist dragon apart. As the black gas rolled, it wrapped the gear tightly.
After advancing to the Pseudo Pellet State period, Liu Ming’s spiritual power not only increased a lot, but his spiritual power was also much thicker than before. The same Dragon Tiger Hell Prison was powered up several times.
At this moment, a deafening tiger roar sounded!
A giant fist wrapped in a huge black tiger head slammed toward the face of Taoist Evil Moon!
When Taoist Evil Moon saw this, a hint of fear finally revealed on his face. He threw out 3 blue talismans at the giant fist, then he stuck a gray talisman on him. As a gray light flashed, he turned into a vague gray light and blasted far away. He didn’t even retrieve the black gear in time.
3 blue talismans suddenly burst open, and a cold wind mixed with ice shards spun like a whirlwind, quickly freezing the giant fist and stopping Liu Ming from chasing.
TL: Lucky for him that he doesn’t have to run far, Liu Ming just learned a nice tracking skill not long ago…
