“Understood, thank you.” When Liu Ming heard this, he was instantly overjoyed.
He didn’t care about spirit stones, but if the other party didn’t allow him, it would be troublesome for him.
The old man in a black robe smiled slightly and waved a green light out of his sleeve. It was a small mink with green fur.
The small mink turned into a young woman in a green shirt in mid-air and slowly floated down.
Seeing this, Liu Ming was surprised.
“Lu Qi, take this Nephew Disciple Liu to the Thousand Beast Pavilion and just make it clear to Junior Fellow Apprentice Sun.” The old man in a black robe commanded.
“Understood.” The young woman in the green shirt’s voice was soft and sweet.
“Sorry for the trouble.” Liu Ming’s face didn’t change at all. He just nodded slightly to the young woman in a green shirt.
Afterward, Liu Ming bowed to the old man in a black robe and left the cave house with the young woman in a green shirt.
“The 4 ancient sects are indeed deeply rooted. There really have many outstanding disciples. This Liu Ming’s Divine Thought is so powerful that he almost discovered my traces just now.” As Liu Ming and the young woman in a green robe walked out of the room, an abrupt voice sounded.
Immediately afterward, the faint green figure flashed. He was covered in a green light curtain, looking quite mysterious.
“Your hiding mystic art can even hide from the Celestial Cultivator, Demonic Heart Old Freak. This young man can almost sense you? This person seems to live up to his reputation. Well, this time it is considered to have repaid a favor to Taiqing Sect and to make friends with this Liu Ming. The old man in a black robe raised his eyebrows and said so.
“Our Heavenly Beast Mountain Sect has only been established for more than 30,000 years. We are far from being comparable to the 4 ancient sects such as the Taiqing Sect. Otherwise, why would we deliberately make friends with such ordinary inner disciples.” The green light figure snorted in disdain.
The old man in a black robe smiled and said nothing.
After Liu Ming left Huo Can’s cave house, he followed the young woman in a green shirt into the depths of Heavenly Beast Mountain.
Along the way, the young woman seemed to be very interested in Liu Ming and kept asking questions. Liu Ming was silent most of the time. He would only occasionally answer a sentence or two, which disinterested the young woman in a green shirt.
Heavenly Beast Mountain was very vast. Although it was not comparable to the Taiqing Sect’s countless years of accumulation in the Thousands Spirit Mountain Range, it was not inferior to Ouyang Family in Xuanmeng Mountain.
After a dozen minutes, Liuthey came to a steep valley.
“Mr. Liu, Thousand Beast Pavilion is under the valley here.” The young woman in a green shirt pointed at the bottom of the valley.
“Thousand Beast Pavilion is here?” Liu Ming frowned. When he looked down from above the valley, he was slightly surprised.
The mountains on both sides of this canyon were not high, but the sides were rugged and steep like 2 long snakes. The bottom of the fusiform valley was in the middle.
There was a faint white cloud floating over the bottom of the valley, but an exceptional building could still be seen through the cloud. It was built with green stones. Only a part of the building was exposed like it was embedded into the stone walls.
On the stone walls on the left and right sides of the building gate, 6 lifelike beastkins were carved respectively. Their eyes were flickering with lights. This should be some kind of enchantment.
On a huge stone tablet in front of the building, 3 big red characters “Thousand Beast Pavilion” were inscribed.
After Liu Ming read it, he flew down from the air.
At this moment, a bony bird with dark green feathers suddenly appeared from the clouds and bit at Liu Ming.
The bird’s speed was as fast as lightning. It was about 6 meters away from Liu Ming in the blink of an eye.
Liu Ming’s response was also extremely fast. The moment the strange bird appeared, he had made a gesture and moved back for 30 meters, easily dodging the attack.
The young woman in a green shirt glanced at Liu Ming in surprise. With a flash of white light in her hand, there was already a bronze token. She shook it gently at the strange bird that was about to attack.
A white light burst out from the token!
Seeing this, the strange bird stopped attacking immediately. After glancing at the young woman with sharp eyes, it nodded and flew back into the valley.
“Sorry, I forgot to tell Mr. Liu just now that there are spiritual beasts secretly guarding important places in Heavenly Beast Mountain. Outside this Thousand Beast Pavilion, is this Crystallization Period later stage wing bone bird. Anyone trying to get close will be attacked by it.” The young woman said with a full smile.
Liu Ming frowned slightly, then he relaxed.
This woman was obviously taking this little revenge for being snubbed. However, since he was in another sect and he had a request for them, he couldn’t really do anything. He coughed lightly and said,
“This bird can actually retrain its aura. I’m really surprised. Could this be the beast controlling technique of the Heavenly Beast Mountain?”
“Not really. This wing bone bird is a rare yin beast. It is born with talents to restrain its aura, so it isn’t the technique of our Heavenly Beast Mountain.” A green light flew toward the depths of the valley.
Hearing this, Liu Ming was amazed.
He was also a learned person, but he had never heard the name wing bone bird before. The Heavenly Beast Mountain was indeed worthy of being the best in controlling beasts. They actually used such exotic beasts to guard the important places.
While he was amazed, he was looking forward to this trip to Thousand Beast Pavilion. He followed the young woman in a green shirt closely into the valley.
When flying down, there were a few figures moving in the clouds. There were actually more than 1 wing bone birds. Maybe because of the token in the young man’s hand, these strange birds didn’t attack him.
After a few seconds, Liu Ming and the young woman in a green robe landed on the square in front of Thousand Beast Pavilion one after the other.
Liu Ming glanced at the beastkin relief mountains on both sides, then he went toward the door with the young woman in a green shirt.
There was no one guarding the stone door of Thousand Beast Pavilion. After the young woman in a green shirt shook the token, the stone door opened with a rumble.
The young woman in a green shirt turned around and nodded to Liu Ming, then she walked in with him.
In the center of the hall was a long table, behind which sat a pale middle-aged man. He was studying book. When he heard the noise, he glanced at them.
Liu Ming was slightly shocked. His gaze actually caused a burning pain on his skin.
This middle-aged man with a sick face was a cultivator of the Real Pellet State perfect stage. His aura was vaguely similar to the Celestial State.
“Elder Sun, this is Taiqing Sect’s Liu Ming. He wants to go to Thousand Beast Pavilion to check the information. It was approved by Elder Huo Can.” The young woman in a green shirt bowed to the middle-aged man and said with voice transmission.
“Thousand Beast Pavilion is only open to Heavenly Beast Mountain’s disciples. People from other sects are not allowed to enter. Regardless of the consent of Elder Huo, according to the usual practice, you need to pay 500,000 spirit stones every hour. In addition, if you want to copy any jade slip, you will be charged separately, do you understand?” The middle-aged man put down the booklet in his hand and said lightly,
“Yes. Junior understands.” Liu Ming nodded, but he couldn’t help but sigh in his heart.
500,000 spirit stones per hour, then a day would cost 6 million. Although this was only a small amount for him, at this price, he could a prototype magic weapon out there. This Thousand Beast Pavilion was really a profiteer.
“The message has been passed, I will leave now.” The young woman in a green robe bowed at Liu Ming, then she flew away.
“The books are all upstairs. You can go up and check it yourself. When you come out, pay for the spirit stones. If you don’t have enough spirit stones, you can pay with the spiritual beasts around your waist.” The middle-aged man threw a white token to Liu Ming. After looking at the 2 spiritual beast bags around Liu Ming’s waist, he continued to study hard.
Liu Ming took over the token. After cupping his fist and bowing, he walked around the long table and went to the 2nd floor.
The 2nd floor of Thousand Beast Pavilion was extraordinarily spacious and bright. It had the size of several acres. There were about 600 rows of high bookshelves. Piles of books and bamboo slips were neatly placed on them. There were also some bookshelves with some jade slips.
After looking around, Liu Ming found there each bookshelf was covered in a white enchantment. The front of each bookshelf was marked with small seal characters: Land Beasts, Insects, Birds, Sea Beastkin, Wild Savage…
Liu Ming nodded secretly. The information was sorted into categories so that the disciples could easily check them.
There were at least tens of thousands of books in the collection, but in a huge hall, there were only a dozen or so Heavenly Beast Mountain disciples reading here. Among them, the 2 who stood closer to the entrance of the stairs casually glanced at Liu Ming, then they continued reading the books in their hands.
Liu Ming didn’t rush to read it, but he looked around at the books and jade slips on the bookshelves around him.
Some books were slightly yellowed. Obviously, they had been passed down for a long time.
After roughly checking the 2nd floor, at the corner of the second floor, he found a wooden ladder leading to the 3rd floor, but there was an enchantment on the stairs. He tried to punch a symbol into the token in his hand, but unfortunately it was useless.
Liu Ming asked a nearby disciple of the Heavenly Beast Mountain, and he found that the 3rd floor kept the books that recorded the techniques of controlling beasts. Ordinary disciples weren’t allowed to enter without the permission of the elder.
Liu Ming naturally had no interest in Heavenly Beast Mountain’s techniques. After pondering for a while, he walked to the area where the bird beastkin was placed. He shook the token to launch a light at a bookshelf.
Bang, the white enchantment on the bookshelf cracked open.
Liu Ming stepped forward, picked up a thick book and read it on the spot.
