The hole was a passage of uneven stone steps that extended downwards. It was much deeper than he expected.
Liu Ming walked for about 15 minutes before reaching the end of the stone steps, then a large cave of several acres appeared in front of him.
In the depths of the cave, a gray rocky path with a width of 3 meters could be vaguely seen, leading to somewhere. On both sides of the cave wall were some rubble and red plants of different sizes.
For some reason, the sky above the cave was illuminated by a pale green light. If he didn’t walk down the stone steps, he would feel that he was hundreds of meters underground.
After Liu Ming thought for a while, he continued walking toward the gray rocky path ahead.
The path was not long. In less than 5 minutes, he came to an end.
The demon leader in a gray robe was standing before a green stone door that was destroyed. He seemed to be checking something.
The stone door was about 12 meters tall and 6 meters wide. There was a big hole in the center. The other parts of the stone door were filled 7 ring-shaped spirit patterns, but they didn’t seem to be working now.
The demon leader was touching these ring-shaped spirit patterns with faint white mist on his fingertips.
Suddenly, the demon put his hand in front of his nose and smelled it, seeming to have found something. He just flashed into the stone door without greeting Liu Ming.
After Liu Ming pondered for a while, he also appeared in front of the stone door and inspected it.
“Eh? This is… seven chain enchantment!”
Above the green stone door, between the 7 ring-shaped spirit patterns, there were dense and intricate shallow grooves. They were mysteriously interlocking. If he didn’t observe so closely, he wouldn’t notice it at all.
Liu Ming once read about this ancient enchantment in the Scriptures Pavilion. This enchantment contained 7 small enchantments, but due to the link between 7 enchantments, the defensive ability was greatly enhanced. Only those who were proficient in arrays could unlock this seven chain enchantment by solving it one by one.
If anyone wanted to break it open with brute force, even the Celestial State cultivator couldn’t do it instantly.
However, this door has now been forcibly opened by brute force. From the surface traces and residual aura, it seemed that it happened not long ago. Not only that, it was done by 1 person.
“Interesting, it seems that the person who entered this place before is not simple.” Liu Ming thought so.
Then, without waiting for the other demons to urge him, he entered the stone door in a flash.
“Whoosh“, a series of whistling sounds occurred.
The other 6 demons also went into the stone door, following behind Liu Ming.
Obviously, the reason why these demons followed Liu Ming closely was to prevent him from suddenly changing his mind on the way and slipping away.
After passing through the stone door, it was an underground palace-like place. First, there was a waterside promenade. On both sides of the promenade were 2 black rock waterfalls with different styles. The water hit on the uneven black rocks and splashed. The sound of the waterflow seemed to be playing a crisp music.
Normally, Liu Ming might stop to appreciate it, but now he naturally didn’t have such a mood. After a few flickers, he caught up with the demon leader at the end of the promenade.
At the end of the promenade was a rather odd pool. The water in the pool came from the waterfalls on both sides.
There were white crystals of various sizes floating on the pool like lotus petals.
“I didn’t expect that this white lotus water enchantment would be breached by him. It seems that we have to hurry up!” The demon leader said faintly, then he flew past the pool.
Liu Ming had never heard of the array mentioned by the demon. After taking a quick glance at the pond, he also flew over the pool.
Next, they passed through 3 enchantments that were quite mysterious in succession, but these enchantments were all destroyed without exception.
Not long after, Liu Ming and several demons finally walked out of the palace and came to the entrance of an underground valley.
Liu Ming frowned slightly. From a distance, he could feel a faint wave of spiritual power coming from the depths of the valley. The aura was very powerful, and it was somewhat similar to what was left on the green stone door before.
Several demons also sensed someone in the valley. After looking at each other, they raised their arms and made a mysterious gesture.
Wisps of black air spread out from them, turning into a strange gray wind. Their figures were all hidden by the gray wind.
Seeing this, Liu Ming patted his shoulder and activated the Che Huan totem to hide his aura.
This area was not large. After going over a small slope that was not too high, the whole valley could be seen at a glance.
Liu Ming glanced around, and he found something in surprise.
At the end of the valley hundreds of meters away, a giant stone tablet about 12 meters tall was blocking the way forward. The stone tablet emitted blue light which was conspicuous in this dark underground.
In front of the stone tablet, there was a slender woman wearing a red cloth. Her face could not be seen clearly. She was launching one after another rune into the tablet.
The blue light on the surface of the stone tablet flickered as the runes went in.
Liu Ming’s eyes flashed. This person must be the person who broke several enchantments in a row along the way, and the blue stone tablet was obviously another enchantment.
He looked around again and found that on the road leading to the end of the valley, there were strands of gray-black mist that drifted forward.
He was moved, but he did not move forward, but just stood on the soil slope. He stared at everything without moving.
Just when the gray-black mist floated to less than a hundred meters away from the slender figure, it suddenly accelerated and rolled forward. The next moment, it surrounded the red woman and turned into 7 gray figures on the spot.
It was the 7 demons!
As soon as the 7 people appeared, they raised their arms in a very tacit understanding. 7 rolls of gray gas instantly spewed out from their palms. They intertwined and formed a gray rope that extended toward the woman.
The woman reacted extremely quickly. When the 7 people appeared, she stopped her action and screamed. The red cloth rolled out and turned into a red hurricane that surrounded her.
A loud thunder came from the hurricane.
The rope condensed by the 7 gray demonic qi was dissipated by the red hurricane. They couldn’t penetrate the hurricane at all.
“Hmph! You mere demons dare to sneak me!” A clear female voice came from the red hurricane.
As soon as the voice came out, the red hurricane spread out, seeming to shroud the 7 demons in it.
The few demons seemed to have expected their attack to fail as they did not look surprised at all. They quickly made gestures, releasing demonic qi around them.
Then the 7 demons stretched out their left arm and clawed forward. 7 thick gray demonic qi were launched to the middle.
The scattered demonic qi were gathered into gray demonic claws of a dozen meters after the demonic qi surged in.
The red hurricane couldn’t defend these 7 demonic claws as they pierced through the hurricane without hindrance!
The 7 demons revealed a strange smile.
Liu Ming was stunned slightly. He felt something was wrong.
Then, an unexpected scene happened!
The red hurricane, that was originally spreading, was quickly shrinking to the middle at a faster speed.
With a few muffled sounds, the red light faded quickly, revealing the figure inside.
The 7 gray demonic claws that pierced through had disappeared without a trace.
This made the 7 demons look at each other in shock and disbelief.
A young woman with a graceful and slender figure stood in the middle of the 7 demons.
This woman was holding the cloth she wore just now. She was now wearing a spotless white palace costume. Her soft and long hair had reached her waist. She had white teeth, starlike gaze and jadelike skin. Her peerless appearance was not inferior to Jia Lan who had the sky succubus physique.
What made Liu Ming stunned was that the cold and pressing aura exuded from the woman was a bit similar to Ye Tianmei’s. However, there was still a hint of childishness in her, which added more to her charm.
At this moment, the 7 demons shouted and clawed at the same time.
“Boom boom boom!“
7 black winds appeared within a dozen meters of the woman from all directions. The black wind turned into a sky full of small black insects that swarmed at the woman.
Each of these demonic insects was about an inch in size. They looked like silkworm chrysalis. Black air was all over their bodies. There were 4 bean-sized eyes on the top of their head, and a pair of pincer-like fangs. They looked very ferocious.
