From the red hair, a wisp of red aura came out, and it slowly merged into the black ripples.
A layer of black light ripples also appeared in Liu Ming’s eyes.
After he entered the upper realm ruins, he experienced a series of battles. Regardless of his state of mind or his powers, they were improved by a lot. Now, it wasn’t strenuous for him to cast Hell Soul Search.
“He is still chasing…” Liu Ming’s eyes flashed. He retracted his arm, and the black ripples disappeared in a flash. He also transformed into 4 phantasms and went in different directions.
After 15 minutes, a bloody escape light came from a distance, and Ji Ying appeared in a flash.
He glanced around with divine thought, then he frowned and took out a green disk array.
There was a flash of green light on the disk array, and there were a few low-pitched female voices. It seemed that Lan Si was reporting something.
Ji Ying sneered upon hearing it, then he went to Liu Ming’s direction.
More than a thousand miles away, Liu Ming dashed forward at a high speed while casting Hell Soul Search.
“This Ji Ying uses some kind of tracking mystic art that can trace my location.” Liu Ming’s face became ugly.
Since he mastered the Three Shadowy Mirages, the 4 phantasms’ aura was identical. Under the blessing of his power mental power, the phantasms were indistinguishable by cultivators below the Celestial State.
When they were fighting at close range before, it was excusable to be seen through. Now at such a distance, it was still easily seen through by him, which didn’t make sense.
Thinking of this, he accelerated.
Liu Ming didn’t notice that in a dense forest under the escape light, blue light flashed on a tall tree, and a face slowly emerged on the trunk. The face looked a little blurry, but only one pair of eyes sparkled like sapphire. It was staring in the direction that Liu Ming escaped.
After a while, the face slowly disappeared into the tree trunk.
Thousands of miles away, the green disk array in Ji Ying’s hand vibrated for a while, and a faint green light appeared again. The voice of the woman came faintly again.
“Hehe, I want to see, where else can you run?” Ji Ying sneered, then he spat out a diamond-shaped bloody crystal in a red light. As soon as it was cast, countless crystal silks wrapped his body.
The next moment, he turned into a dazzling bloody light. A wolf shadow could vaguely be seen. With a flash, it dashed out for 300 meters or more. The speed was almost twice as fast.
When Liu Ming used Hell Soul Search again to sense Ji Ying’s position, he found that Ji Ying’s escape speed suddenly increased greatly. It took only 10 minutes to shorten the distance between them by half.
Liu Ming’s expression changed. Even though he had a lot of elixirs to replenish spiritual power, Ji Ying was extremely fast. The distance between them was rapidly shortening.
There was a hint of hesitation on his face, then he slapped his waist. The void attribute sword pouch emerged in a silver flash, then he tore the silver talisman attached to it.
Whoosh! A small golden sword of several inches flashed out.
He launched several symbols in a row, and the small golden sword immediately glowed with a dazzling golden light, turning into a giant sword of a dozen meters long. There were blue starlights around the sword.
A golden light suddenly wrapped the giant golden sword, and it turned into a sword rainbow. It flashed and disappeared in the horizon.
This speed was more than twice as fast as before!
Liu Ming stood tightly on the giant sword. His ears were full of crisp sword whistles. Everything around him became blurred. The speed of escaping was so fast that he felt like losing control of the giant sword.
This was the first time he used Sword Maru to cast sword controlling technique. It was much faster than when it was a magic weapon prototype.
Liu Ming was surprised at first, then overjoyed.
But at this moment, a trembling sound came from the crisp whistles.
His face changed slightly, then he sighed.
Sword Maru’s spirituality had not been completely stabilized. A few days ago, in order to kill the Celestial State demon, he had forcibly used it once. Now, he was forced to use it again. Over time, it might damage Sword Maru’s spirituality.
As Liu Ming thought so, he took out the thunder attribute flying sword he got from the giant beast’s stomach.
A purple lightning arc appeared from time to time on the sword. It seemed to be full of spirituality.
In terms of quality, this sword was probably comparable to the Void Sword when it was still a magic weapon prototype.
When his eyes moved to the hilt of the sword, his heart moved.
When he took it out from the array eye of the Four Sides Qingluo Array that day, he didn’t notice that there were 2 silver ancient characters engraved on the hilt of the sword.
Liu Ming muttered in his mind, then he spat spiritual power on the flying sword, planning to sacrificial refine it while using it to escape.
2 days later, over a snow-capped mountain range, a sword light with purple lightning flew from a distance and landed on one of the mountain peaks.
The purple light dissipated, revealing Liu Ming’s figure. The purple sword light once again turned into a flying sword that was about a foot long and returned into his sleeve.
Liu Ming’s face was pale at the moment. After taking an elixir and resting for a moment, his face looked better.
Looking back in the direction from which he came, Liu Ming’s face was extremely gloomy.
For the past 2 days, he had been playing cat and mouse chase with Ji Ying. He finally sacrificial refined this thunder sword by using the time bought from using the Sword Maru.
Afterward, he used this sword to cast the sword controlling technique together with the Beast Armor Tactic, he finally kept the same speed as Ji Ying. In addition, he had the initiative, so he was not afraid of being caught up by Ji Ying for a while.
However, this Ji Ying persevered unexpectedly. No matter how Liu Ming changed his direction or accelerated with the auxiliary talismans, he was always chasing behind him. He had no intention of giving up.
“I can’t just keep running…” Feeling that his spiritual power was slowly recovering, Liu Ming muttered to himself.
A gray shadow jumped out from behind a rock not far away. It was a gray lizard the size of a washbasin. Its mouth was full of sharp teeth, and it bit toward Liu Ming’s leg fiercely.
Liu Ming was shocked. He launched a purple sword qi from his finger, hitting it away.
The gray lizard rolled on the ground a few times. The scales on its back were broken, and a long wound was bleeding continuously. After struggling a few times, it stood up again and screamed fiercely at Liu Ming.
A look of surprise flashed across Liu Ming’s eyes. Although it was just a casual blow just now, the beastkin of the Condensation Period shouldn’t be able to withstand it. The gray lizard’s spiritual power fluctuations were not strong, but its body was so tough.
When he was about to kill this lizard, a group of identical gray lizards jumped out from behind a boulder not far away. There were dozens of them.
Liu Ming was startled, and he immediately flew into midair.
The gray lizards could not fly, so they could only scream at Liu Ming in midair.
Liu Ming looked a little ugly. There were all kinds of strange beastkins in the upper realm ruins. He had encountered a lot during the escape. If he continued to be chased by Ji Ying, who knows what he would encounter. If he accidentally ran into the nest of the savage giant best or the like, he wouldn’t even know how he died.
As soon as he thought of this, a hint of determination appeared on Liu Ming’s face. He chanted and cast Hell Soul Search. He sensed that Ji Ying was 4,000 miles away. He was coming at him quickly.
With Ji Ying’s speed, it probably wouldn’t take long to get here.
Killing intent flashed across Liu Ming’s face. He made a gesture and went deeper into the mountain range.
Since I can’t get rid of him, I might as well fight Ji Ying to the death in this mountain range!
Although Ji Ying is powerful, I can still fight against him. I can take the risk of damaging Void Sword’s spirituality if the situation is dire. Combined with Ninth Heaven Divine Thunder, I’m 60% sure to kill him.
A light flashed in his hand, and a stack of formation flags and disk arrays appeared. It was the Purdue Sumeru Array.
Just when he released Divine Thought and planned to find a hidden place to set up the array, his expression suddenly changed slightly. He turned his head and looked in one direction, only to see a light blue light spot coming at him quickly.
Liu Ming put away the formation flags and disk arrays in his hand, then he landed in the dense forest below.
Just after he concealed his figure and used the Che Huan totem to restrain his spiritual power fluctuation, a blue light flew over quickly and stopped slowly in the air.
In the dense forest below, Liu Ming secretly complained in his heart. At this moment, his spiritual power had not been restored to half. If this was an enemy, it would be very bad.
The blue escape light slowly dissipated, revealing the figure of a woman in blue clothes. The 3 blue feathers on her head were unusually eye-catching. Who else would it be if it wasn’t Lan Si?
“Mr. Liu, we meet again.”
The woman in blue clothes looked at the place where Liu Ming and said faintly. The pair of sapphire-like eyes were shining.
Liu Ming only felt a cold air coming from behind him. He glanced sideways, and he was startled.
On the tree trunk behind him, an indistinct face appeared. The eyes shining in blue light were identical to the woman’s eyes in the air!
“It’s you! How do you know my name?” Liu Ming flew out of the hiding place since he was exposed. He came to the front of the woman in blue clothes and asked coldly.
TL: Why did she come to Liu Ming herself?
