Luo Tiancheng thought about it again and again, but he still didn’t dare to volunteer. After all, although he had the dutian spiritual body, he would be eaten up before he could recover.
“Then let me do it!”
Just when everyone was silent, a faint male voice rang out.
Everyone looked over in of surprise.
The person who spoke was Liu Ming!
Luo Tiancheng and Wen Zeng were slightly startled.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu, you…”
Seeing that it was Liu Ming, Qiu Longzi frowned slightly, seeming hesitant.
“En, I think it’s suitable for Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu to take this important task. After all, apart from me and Junior Qiu Longzi, I’m afraid you are the strongest.” Jin Tianci nodded, and he didn’t seem surprised to see Liu Ming volunteer.
Seeing this, Qiu Longzi couldn’t say anything more, so he could only nod his head.
After Liu Ming glanced over the pile of spirit gathering stones, his mind was calm as water.
These spirit gathering stones were too important to him. In order to increase the chance of advancing, it was worth taking this risk.
As for those bat beastkins outside, with his strength and the few treasures in his hand, even if he was in danger, he could still escape with confidence.
“Since Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu volunteered, let’s act quickly!” Jin Tianci looked at the group of bats that already lined up in the air, and he immediately threw a jade bottle at Liu Ming.
Liu Ming took the jade bottle and glanced at it.
The jade bottle was emerald. The bottle was tightly closed with a cork, and there was a talisman on it. Not the slightest smell came out.
He launched a wave of black gas to take away half of the spirit gathering stones and kept them into the Sumeru Ring.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu, you just need to open the bottle and use spiritual power to channel the alluring spiritual fluid, these bat beastkin will be attracted by the smell. Also, after you lead away bats, just go to the Obsidian Mountain marked on the map. We will meet there.” Jin Tianci said quickly.
Just when Liu Ming wanted to say something, the voice of Jin Tianci came again in his ears,
“You only need to divert most of the bats away for a certain distance, then you can try to escape. In short, you must put your life before everything.”
“No problem.” Liu Ming nodded.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Qiu. You also help me to open a path to let Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu leave this place smoothly!” Jin Tianci turned his head and ordered again.
Qiu Longzi agreed without hesitation. He patted a somewhat worn-out gray leather bag on his waist with one hand. The surface of the leather bag flashed with a gray light, and a dazzling golden sword qi appeared in his palm.
At this time, Liu Ming glanced at the Ouyang Sisters.
Ouyang Qian’s eyes flickered, but in the end, she didn’t say anything.
On the other hand, Quyang Qin said, “Take care!”
Liu Chong smiled at them without saying anything.
At this moment, Jin Tianci cast dozens of symbols, and the light curtains shined brightly.
Jin Tianci spouted a green light cluster, then he folded his hands in front and slowly pulled them apart.
2 big green hands came out from the green light cluster and pressed on the light curtain.
As Jin Tianci chanted, a small gap was torn on the light curtain by the green hands.
After the bloodthirsty bats outside were stunned for a moment, they immediately screeched with excitement and rushed toward the gap.
At this moment, Qiu Longzi shouted loudly, and a golden light burst out from his hand suddenly.
A blurry golden sword shadow turned into countless sword shadows with pressing sword intent and blasted toward the gap.
Qiu Longzi closed his fingers together and formed a sword seal. He quickly launched several sword symbols while breathing out slowly. All the sword shadows combined into a magnificent golden light beam.
For a while, the strange cold sword intent rolled out, causing the inner disciples to look up in shock.
The dozen or so bats that had poured into the gap were turned into bloody rain by a 90 meters long golden giant python phantasm.
Seeing this, Liu Ming’s eyes flickered. Qiu Longzi was worthy of being an esoteric disciple. His sword skill was even more pure and amazing than when he was in the Sword Soul Hall.
“Golden Spirit Bloodbath!”
Qiu Longzi shouted loudly and waved his hand.
The golden giant python phantasm circled high in the sky, opened its mouth and shot bursts of golden light. In a burst of dazzling golden light, countless sword qi slashed in all directions.
In just 3 seconds, more than a hundred bloodthirsty bats near the gap were cleared. A pungent bloody smell spread out!
Outside the valley, the bats that were going to rush into the gap all screeched in horror. Their movement slowed at once.
At this moment, Jin Tianci also waved 1 hand and threw out a silver talisman. It turned into a silver light ball in the thunderous sound and disappeared in a blur.
The next moment, the silver light ball appeared among the bats and exploded into lightning arcs.
After a loud noise, countless scorched black bat corpses fell from the sky.
The bats that originally surrounded the light curtain by layers were cleaned off, revealing a path.
Liu Ming, who had been prepared for it, flickered and went through the gap in a black light. Before the bats could react, he had already rushed out of the encirclement.
Seeing this, Qiu Longzi breathed a sigh of relief and made a gesture with 1 hand.
The dazzling golden light in the sky rolled back into the gap. It dimmed and turned back into a golden flying sword, then it went back to the gray sword pouch on Qiu Longzi’s waist.
Almost at the same time when Qiu Longzi retrieved the flying sword, Jin Tianci waved with 1 hand, and the 2 giant green hands that opened up the gap dissipated into little green lights.
The gap on the light curtain immediately closed up again.
Outside the valley, the bloodthirsty bats that had been suppressed by Qiu Longzi’s sword qi finally came to their senses. Many of them let out a sharp screech and pursued Liu Ming.
The 2 bloodthirsty bats of the Crystallization Period flapping their 30 meter long wings while shooting bloody light beams from their mouths.
Liu Ming snorted coldly. As black gas rolled out, he blurred and appeared 30 meters away, evading the bloody light beams.
The 2 Crystallization Period bats screeched angrily, and a bloody beastkin wind rose from their bodies again as they flew toward Liu Ming.
Liu Ming turned into a black line and flew to the other side of the valley, leaving the 2 bloodthirsty bats of the Crystallization Period far behind.
At the same time, the talisman on the green jade bottle was also opened slightly by him. A black gas gushed out, covering the bottle.
The next moment, there was a strange smell in the jade bottle. It smelled like sandalwood and fishy.
To Liu Ming, apart from being a little weird, he didn’t feel anything to this smell, but the bats chasing behind were full of greed in their eyes as if they saw something that was extremely longing.
For a time, the speed of the bats that were chasing Liu Ming suddenly increased a lot. The 2 Crystallization Period bats turned into 2 bloody clouds, almost catching up with Liu Ming.
“It really works!”
Liu Ming made a gesture, and a pair of silver wings stretched out. It flapped and went out for 30 meters, once again pulling the distance between the bats. He began to circle around the valley.
Driven by his spiritual power, the alluring spiritual fluid emitted a stronger smell from the jade bottle. Wherever he flew, the bloodthirsty bats were like flies that smelled food. They all gave up besieging the valley and chased Liu Ming.
After Liu Ming quickly circled the valley for half a circle, half of the bloodthirsty bats that originally surrounded the valley were attracted by the alluring spiritual fluid.
At this moment, more than 300 meters behind him, there was a pressing black-red bat cloud. People in the valley were left speechless.
They fully believed that as long as Liu Ming made a slight mistake or his spiritual power was not enough, he would completely disappear from this world without even a single piece of him left.
Ouyang Sisters and several people who had close relationships with Liu Ming, couldn’t help but look worried.
“It’s almost time…” Liu Ming, who was flying, suddenly murmured. He checked the direction and was about to fly into the distance.
Almost at the same time, a 60 meters giant bat appeared above him. It was the bloodthirsty bat of the Real Pellet State!
This beastkin seemed to be staring at Liu Ming greedily, but its eyes still kept a trace of clarity. The moment a pair of giant claws appeared, they transformed into several claw shadows that attacked Liu Ming from all directions.
