“You are Liu Ming?” Beside the old man, a gentle young scholar appeared in a green light and blurted out.
“What, he is Taiqing Sect’s Liu Ming, who is the top 1 in the Tianmen Convention?” Hearing the words, the drooping-brow old man was startled at first, but there was a hint of undetectable joy in his eyes.
“You guys must be from the Haoran Academy. I mistakenly ran into this place, so I don’t know what’s going on. What is the Human Alliance?” Hearing this, Liu Ming cupped his fist at them.
“Oh? You didn’t come here after receiving some news?” The old man with drooping eyebrows was a little surprised.
“I was pursued by a beastkin powerhouse until here not long ago, so I really don’t know what’s going on here.” Liu Ming replied-truth.
“Oh! Since that’s the case, I will brief you about it. The Alliance is due to a ruin in the depths of this valley. It is said that it contains a lot of rare treasures. We have been in a stalemate with the beastkin cultivators from the Savage Wild Continents for more than 10 days. They have 2 Real Pellet State cultivators and we only have Senior Fellow Apprentice Sun, so we are in a disadvantage. We can only barely hold them here while asking for other friends to help.” The young scholar explained to Liu Ming slowly.
Hearing that there were 2 beastkin cultivators here, Liu Ming couldn’t help frowning. It seemed that his guess was correct. It would not be easy to obtain spiritual medicine that prolonged life.
“Since Mr. Liu is here already, you might as well consider joining our alliance to temporarily fight against those beastkin cultivators. If we push them back, we will gain a lot after entering the ruin.” The old man with dropping eyebrows suddenly grinned.
After hearing those words, he quickly analyzed the pros and cons of joining the alliance.
If he didn’t join and sneak in by himself, not only would he be pursued by the beastkin cultivators, but the human cultivators wouldn’t let him go as well. Moreover, there were now 2 Real Pellet State powerhouses on the opposite. If they were as powerful as Ji Ying, he could only fight one of them with all his power. Fighting 2 of them was simply impossible, let alone they were assisted by other beastkins.
“As a disciple of the 4 ancient sects, in such a situation involving a dispute between the 2 clans, it would be difficult for me to leave.” Liu Ming agreed to it.
“Very good. With Mr. Liu joining in, I believe we have a better chance of winning!” The scholar from Haoran Academy was immediately overjoyed when Liu Ming agreed to join, and the old man with drooping eyebrows beside him also showed a happy face.
“You have overpraised. With so many allies here, I’m just providing little support.” Liu Ming said politely.
“Mr. Liu is wrong. Don’t see that I’m an old man. In terms of strength, I’m nobody. How can I be compared with you! I was sent here to patrol because of this too. Mr. Liu really comes at the right time. Senior Fellow Apprentice Sun is discussing plans with other people. He will be very happy to see you joining us.” The old man with drooping eyebrows waved his hand and said.
“Yes, Senior Fellow Apprentice Sun and the others are right in front. Let’s go now.” The young scholar continued the old man’s words.
Seeing Liu Ming nodded, the old man with drooping eyebrows cast a yellow cloud to carry them while launching a communication talisman.
“Right, I forgot to ask your names.” Liu Ming suddenly remembered something and asked.
“I’m Huang Yun, this is my junior, Lin Ping.” The old man with drooping eyebrows replied.
“By the way, is the Senior Fellow Apprentice Sun elite of your academy? Also, can you tell me the specific situation here?” Liu Ming asked again.
In the 4 ancient sects of the Middle Sky Continent, compared with the other 3, Haoran Academy was the most willing to intervene with the outside matter. Whenever something big happened in Immortality Cultivation Realm and the mortal world, Haoran Academy was always the first to step in.
Over time, when the human race cultivator and the alien race cultivator went into conflict, without the competition of the other 3 sects, the people of Haoran Academy generally became the leaders that everyone expected.
“You’re right, Senior Fellow Apprentice Sun is one of the leaders of the Real Pellet State in our sect. Although he is only at the Real Pellet State intermediate stage and his strength is not the strongest among his peers, no one is better than him in strategies. His prestige is also second to none among the disciples who entered the ruins. This time, it was also Senior Fellow Apprentice who led us to find this place first, and he found that the ruins here have been occupied by 3 Beastkin powerhouses, 1 of whom is at the Real Pellet State. However, these beastkins did not rush to destroy the enchantment in the ruins, but they set up camp nearby. We don’t know what they are waiting for, and they had a direct conflict with us. At the beginning, we were still on the upper hand due to the number advantage and the array proficiency of Senior Fellow Apprentice Sun. However, a few days, later a dozen beastkin cultivators gathered as if they planned for this. There was even a Real Pellet State beastkin among them. Under this situation, Senior Fellow Apprentice Sun brought us here to avoid the danger, and we sent out voice transmissions to gather human cultivators. Although there isn’t any new Real Pellet State cultivator, we still have gathered a few powerful individuals, which is the reason we can still resist the beastkin cultivators.” The young scholar named Lin Ping did not hesitate to tell everything to him.
After hearing about it, Liu Ming looked as usual, but he had faintly guessed the reason why the beastkin cultivators didn’t enter the ruins.
That day, Ji Ying and Hu Zhang didn’t come here directly as they coveted the Spirit Nurture Cauldron, otherwise it would be 4 beastkin cultivators from the Real Pellet State. Even if this Senior Fellow Apprentice Sun was an excellent strategist, he would be overwhelmed.
They came to a valley under a giant snow-capped mountain as they spoke.
“You should be Mr. Liu from the Taiqing Sect. Just come in!”
As soon as they arrived, a sound transmission came from all around and echoed in the ears of them.
Liu Ming secretly released Divine Thought to check the surrounding, but he still couldn’t accurately determine the exact location of the sound. He could only vaguely perceive it coming from the snow-capped mountain ahead.
At this time, the old man of Haoran Academy waved his sleeve and launched a few lights forward.
A gust of wind blew above the snow land, then the snowflakes scattered, revealing a gray tunnel.
“Mr. Liu, Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu and I still have to patrol, so we won’t go in with you.” The old man bowed to Liu Ming and said.
After Liu Ming cupped his fist and thanked him, he jumped into the tunnel.
When the old man with drooping eyebrows saw Liu Ming left, he and his junior flew to the valley.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Huang, is this Liu Ming is as powerful as rumored that he can kill the Real Pellet State powerhouse as a Pseudo Pellet State cultivator!” Scholar Lin suddenly asked.
“Hehe, why do you need to ask me about this? Didn’t you participate in the last Tianmen Convention? You saw this man beat the 2 cultivators of the Big Dipper Pavilion and won the first place.”
“I was outside the Tianmen Conference, so I only heard senior sister apprentice talk about this person’s strength later. I didn’t see it with my own eyes.” The scholar surnamed Lin scratched the back of his head and said a little embarrassedly.
“If this is the case, then this person’s strength is probably true. In this way, we will have more chance in the following fight.” The old man stroked his beard and said.
Next, their conversation became inaudible.
At the same time, Liu Ming had passed a short tunnel and successfully entered the meeting hall of the temporary base.
It was more appropriate to say that it was a huge stone cave rather than a meeting hall. In the “hall” of more than 60 meters, there were 6 cultivators sitting scattered, which was a lot lesser than Liu Ming imagined.
The leader, dressed in Haoran Academy’s costume, looked in his thirties, with a handsome face and a pair of thick eyebrows. He was sitting on a stone chair in the center of the hall. He should be the Senior Fellow Apprentice Sun.
Among the others, there were 2 Haoran Academy cultivators, but the young woman in green clothes Liu Ming had seen at the Tianmen Convention was not present.
The remaining 3, regardless of their clothes or appearance, were new to Liu Ming. According to his guess, they might be disciples of some other sects or great families. A cultivator in white clothes seemed to have extraordinary momentum.
Among the people present, except for the cultivator surnamed Sun, who was a Real Pellet State intermediate stage, the rest, like Liu Ming, were all Pseudo Pellet State cultivation.
Seeing Liu Ming walk in, several people present either stood up, cupped their fists at him or smiled at him.
Liu Ming bowed back politely to them one by one, then he sat on a stone bench on the side of the hall. The moment he sat down and lowered his head, his face changed slightly. He looked at the thing in his sleeve.
“I’m Sun Peng. I just received a message from Junior Fellow Apprentice Huang that he met Mr. Liu, and I was afraid that he wouldn’t be able to invite you here.” The cultivator surnamed Sun waited for Liu Ming to sit down, then he laughed and said to Liu Ming.
“Thanks to Brother Sun’s appreciation! If I hadn’t been pursued down by a Real Pellet State beastkin cultivator, I wouldn’t come here and meet you guys here.” When Liu Ming raised his head again, he said with a smile.
“Mr. Liu can still be unscathed being chased by the Beastkin Clan Real Pellet State cultivator. He deserves to be a disciple of Taiqing Sect!” The cultivator surnamed Sun said with a smile.
“I also spent a lot of effort and a few rare spiritual talismans to escape. If it weren’t for that beastkin seemed to have other important things, I would still probably be dead. Right, these are?” Liu Ming said half-truth.
“Come, come, let me introduce, these 2 are my junior fellow apprentice. This is from the Demon Mystic Sect and the other 2 are from 8 great families…” The cultivator surnamed Sun introduced everyone one by one to him.
When referring to the Demon Mystic Sect disciple, Liu Ming squinted his eyes slightly, and he looked at the cultivator in a white robe a few more times.
