Because the distance was very close and the accident happened suddenly, Liu Ming only retreated more than 60 meters away at the moment; the other 3 demons only retreated not more than 30 meters.
The other 3 demons on the side wanted to help them, but it was too late.
But at this critical moment, Liu Ming suddenly stopped and charged forward. The green bull phantasm emerged on his shoulder, then it shot a green gale from its mouth. The gale wrapped the bloody light beam, and it was swallowed by the green bull phantasm.
At the same time, a dragon roar sounded!
A lifelike mist dragon flew out from Liu Ming’s arm and charged straight to the bloody eye pattern on the octagonal spirit patterns on the stone tablet.
With a loud noise, the entire surface of the stone tablet shattered with the bloody eye pattern at the center.
The young woman in palace costume who was meditating in the distance saw this scene, and her eyes flashed strangely.
4 bloody light beams disappeared in a flash.
Afterwards, the green bull phantasm dissipated into light spots before rolling back into Liu Ming’s shoulder.
The leader demon let out a long sigh, then he glanced at Liu Ming and wanted to say something.
But before he could speak, a pop sound came from the bottom of the stone tablet, then a 6 meters blue array emerged.
“You guys are really lucky. Don’t you know that 1 eye of this “Eight Eyes Pattern” can’t be activated?” The young woman in palace costume emerged ghostly, and she said in a cold tone.
“What, it is actually this enchantment? No wonder it’s familiar.”
Liu Ming was shocked when he heard this!
It was only now that he remembered that this eight-eye pattern was a kind of ancient strange array. This pattern looked different, but the principles were generally the same. The distinctive sign was the 8 strange eyes of different shapes.
Only the person who set up this array knew which eye couldn’t be activated. Without clues, one could only guess it.
The young woman in costume palace said so, but no one knew she had figured out the way to breach this array or she was just bluffing.
At this moment, the young woman in palace costume walked into the array. A mild blue light wrapped her, and she disappeared instantly.
Seeing this, Liu Ming also stepped into the array.
After a flash of blue light, he felt the world spinning around him. When he regained his vision, he found himself in a magnificent palace.
The palace was about 30 meters wide, and the walls were made of pieces of white marble that were smooth as mirrors. On the top of the hall, there were rows of neat moonstones, which were flashing with a faint light.
Due to the reflection of the marble wall, the whole hall was reflected brightly.
At the end of the hall, a gray light curtain was looming. Above the light curtain, there seemed to be a huge ghost creature roaming around. The big eyes were rolling up and down, and the pair of fangs looked extremely sharp, looking very hideous.
The young woman in palace costume was standing not far from the light curtain.
She heard the movement caused by Liu Ming and looked over.
At the same time, in a cave on the belly of a small mountain with dense green forests and a faint black light. Jin Tianci, Qiu Longzi and other Taiqing Sect disciples were resting here.
This cave was quite spacious. More than a dozen disciples of the Taiqing Sect were scattered in twos and threes.
In a corner, Jin Tianci and Qiu Longzi were sitting cross-legged facing each other.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Jin, we have been staying here for a long time. If all goes well, Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu should have returned to join us. If we still wait for him, I’m afraid we can’t finish the tasks assigned to us by sect master.” Qiu Longzi said slightly solemnly towards Jin Tianci.
“You’re right, all the rare treasures around here have been collected by us for the past few days. It’s time for us to leave this place.” Jin Tianci glanced back at the rest of the Taiqing Sect disciples and said faintly.
“However, what if Liu Ming comes to join us, but we have already left?” Qiu Longzi asked worriedly after thinking about it.
“It can’t be helped. We can’t delay the tasks assigned to us because of a person. Notify them to take a rest tonight, then we go to the next destination tomorrow morning. If anything really happens to Liu Ming, it is a waste of time to wait for him. If he is fine, it means that he has his own encounters, so we don’t have to wait any longer.” Jin Tianci sneered.
At the same time, in another corner of the cave, Ouyang Qian and Quyang Qin were also whispering something.
“Sister Qian, this upper realm ruins is indeed a paradise. In just over 10 days, our harvests are so much! Although we have to hand up half of them to the Taiqing Sect, this harvest is still not comparable by the ordinary secret realms!” Quyang Qin was happily touching a storage bracelet on her wrist and said excitedly.
“We still can’t take it lightly. Don’t forget the encounter at the beginning and the advice of several grand elders in the clan. Now that Liu Ming has not returned, the other disciples in the Taiqing Sect don’t have the obligation to save us. We are on our own.” Ouyang Qian said with a frown. She was not as relaxed as Quyang Qin.
“Hehe, Sister Qian doesn’t have to worry about Liu Ming. That guy has a lot of means!” Quyang Qin said with a smile.
“You little girl, making fun of your sister again!” Ouyang Qian’s cheeks couldn’t help but blush.
Half a day later, Liu Ming and the 6 demons, under the coercion of the young woman in palace costume, joined forces to destroy several enchantments in the ruins one after another.
With the previous lessons learned, they did not dare to be so reckless in breaking the arrays. Although the speed was a little slower, the journey was quite smooth fortunately.
During this period, Liu Ming got a worn-out book and a few spiritual herbs thousands of years old in a room similar to a bedroom.
For some reason, Liu Ming found that whether these 6 demons or the young woman, they didn’t care much about the worn-out books and spiritual weapons. They just went straight to the deepest place of the ruin as if the treasure deep inside was only their objective.
After several days of exploration, Liu Ming had also roughly figured out the situations in this underground ruin.
The entire ruin should be the underground cave house of a certain powerhouse in this world, and he seemed to be very proficient in arrays.
If it wasn’t because most of the array’s power had greatly reduced by time, they wouldn’t be able to get here easily.
Although Liu Ming still didn’t know who the owner was, he admired his enchantments.
At this moment, they were walking in a building complex consisting of halls and corridors, which seemed to extend in all directions, but in reality, they were like a labyrinth.
There were many kinds of enchantments between these buildings, and they were mysterious and unusual. If one wanted to forcefully break in, he would be asking for trouble. He could only break the enchantments step by step.
At this moment, in a dark hall, a hexagonal golden array with a size of a dozen meters blocked the tunnel in front.
This array was surrounded by 6 golden lightning walls. On each lightning wall, there were golden snake lightning arcs moving around constantly, and the buzzing lightning sound occurred from time to time.
At the center of the array was a pale golden sphere about a foot in size, which was suspended in mid-air and spinning slowly.
“It should be here. The final enchantment is really made with lightning! Okay, you guys can start.” The young man in palace costume lowered her head and looked at a broken map in her hand, and a hint of joy appeared on her cold face.
“Lightning enchantment? This is a great restraint for both Beastkin Clan and the Demon Clan. It’s really good to use for sealing, but this level of enchantment seems to be too simple.” The leader demon was surprised at first, then he said with a smile and eye gestured another demon beside.
The demon understood, and he patted his chest. A silver armor appeared on his body in a flash.
On the armor, there were silver threads all over it. On the shoulders, an unknown and strange rune was inscribed.
“The superb armor with lightning protection effect? I didn’t expect you demon to spend so much for this place!” The young woman in palace costume glanced at the demon and said expressionlessly.
At this moment, the demon man shook his arms, and a layer of silver flames suddenly appeared on the silver armor. He came to a lightning wall, extended his hands and pulled out.
A loud ripping sound came!
A hole was torn apart on the lightning wall.
The golden lightning snakes all moved toward him instantly.
Just as the lightning snakes touched the silver armor, they disappeared at once.
These lightning snakes couldn’t breach the protection of the armor at all!
Seeing this, Liu Ming was a little surprised.
As a result, when the demon wanted to jump in, something happened!
A pale golden lightning arc was launched from the array. It split up in mid-air, revealing a thin five color lightning silk, and went toward the demon’s forehead.
