Liu Ming lost track of time in the Thousand Beast Pavilion.
5 days later, a black escape light flew out from the giant peak where the Heavenly Beast Mountain was located. Liu Ming flashed and stopped in midair.
His face seemed calm and indifferent, but there was a hint of uncontrollable excitement in his eyes. He waved his sleeve and released a white jade boat.
Liu Ming landed on top, and the boat dashed to the distant horizon.
When he returned to Thousands Spirit Mountain Range, it was more than a month later.
As soon as he stepped into Thousands Spirit Mountain Range, he went to the set market immediately.
After half a day, Liu Ming came to the Hall of All Things again. After spending a lot of contribution points in exchange for some things, he immediately returned to his cave house in the Fallen Serene Peak.
“Master, have you found out the origin of that golden egg?” Liu Ming sat down cross-legged in the secret room, then Xie’er asked out of concern.
In the Heavenly Beast Mountain, in order to avoid them from attracting the powerhouses, he deliberately let them fall asleep in the soul-recovering bags. Xie’er seemed to have woken up on her own now.
“It’s a worthwhile trip.” Liu Ming replied calmly, then he put a bunch of materials on the ground.
Then he took out the pale golden egg.
Looking at the golden beast egg in his hand, he showed a hint of satisfaction.
He had spent a huge sum of 30 million spirit stones in 5 days for this. After reading countless beastkin information and illustrations in Thousand Beast Pavilion, he finally found it in a dilapidated ancient book. This suspected dead egg was not the three crown golden chicken egg. It was the egg of an ancient beast “Si Chen” that had long since disappeared in the Middle Sky Continent.
Si Chen looked similar to the rooster, but its size was much bigger.
This beast was also one of the rare beasts in the world that could survive in both the yin and yang worlds. The adult Si Chen was not only the nemesis of all kinds of ghost creatures, but it also had the ability to get through yin and yang.
It was just that the growth of this beast was too harsh. It had to absorb the pure yin qi and the spirit of the yang world at the same time in order to truly hatch and grow.
If this beast only absorbed yin qi but not spirit, it would eventually become a terrifying yin beast. It was not only ferocious and murderous, but it was also unable to appear under the sun. On the contrary, if it only absorbed spirit from the yang world, it would become an ordinary spiritual beast and lose a lot of innate powers.
However, Si Chen had long since disappeared in ancient time, so the information circulating in the world was also pitiful. Only Heavenly Beast Mountain had some information about this beast.
According to the ancient book, the egg of the Si Chen had almost no life fluctuations before it hatches, and it was easy to be regarded as a dead egg. There must be a reason that such a precious egg was thrown aside, but it wasn’t Liu Ming’s concern now.
Liu Ming only cared if he could hatch this Si Chen, its innate ability to restrain ghost creatures would be a great help, not to mention he planned to enter the Evil Ghost Way soon.
Coincidentally, at the end of that ancient book, it also recorded the mystic arts to revitalize Si Chen’s Egg. This was why Liu Ming left Heavenly Beast Mountain in such a hurry.
After Liu Ming took a deep breath, he took out a small white jade bowl and carefully placed the golden beast egg into the bowl.
Then he picked up a jade bottle on the ground and poured a little silver liquid into the jade bowl. A faint fishy smell drifted out of the secret room.
Liu Ming closed his eyes and carefully reviewed the refine process in his mind, then he opened his eyes and spewed out a stream of pure spiritual power into the jade bowl.
A soft sound came as the silver liquid was ignited with a silver flame.
Liu Ming looked solemn. He waved his hand, and a box of pale yellow bone powder on the ground flew into the silver flame. Then, it was a gray yin stone. Then, 3 spiritual herbs…
After adding more than a dozen kinds of ingredients into the jade bowl in a row, the silver flame in the bowl had grown to a foot high, and its color had gradually changed to pale gold.
Liu Ming made gestures and shot symbols into the golden flame.
The pale golden flame flashed wildly a few times, then it slowly shrank, but it became brighter and brighter.
Under the effect of the golden flame, the golden beast egg began to melt slowly. The pale white pattern markings on the surface of the egg began to emit a faint light. The beast egg, which had no life, began to emit a faint aura of living creatures.
He was delighted. He secretly sighed that Heavenly Beast Mountain’s mystic arts really worked. He bit the tip of his tongue, spat his blood and launched a symbol.
After this blood essence spun, it gradually condensed into a bright red ancient rune in the air.
As he chanted, the rune gradually solidified, and it slowly merged with the beast egg below.
Only then did Liu Ming looked relieved, he launched symbols to control the golden flame to continue wrapping the golden beast egg.
According to the mystic arts, after the ancient rune condensed by the cultivator’s blood merged with Si Chen’s egg, its vitality would completely be activated after 1 day and night.
Half a day later, the shell of the golden beast egg in the jade bowl had turned into a gelatinous state, exuding more and more vitality.
Liu Ming never took his eyes off the beast’s egg. He was excited to see the current situation.
However, at this moment, the beast egg suddenly trembled violently, and its light flashed randomly. Its vitality became a little unstable.
Liu Ming hurriedly launched symbols to stabilize it.
But the beast egg trembled more and more. After a soft sound, the white pattern on the beast disappeared, then it melted into a liquid.
The golden flame in the jade bowl dissipated suddenly. A cloud of green smoke came out. The egg exuded a peculiar smell like a fishy smell or a musky smell.
Seeing this scene, Liu Ming’s face turned ashen. He could only stare at the jade bowl.
The change happened too fast that he couldn’t do anything. He didn’t know which process had gone wrong, but the activation had clearly failed.
At this moment, the soul-recovering bag around his waist was agitated. “Whoosh“, a black gas rolled out and instantly wrapped the beast egg. A chewing sound came from it.
Liu Ming was stunned!
In the black gas, the palm-sized Bone Scorpion devoured Si Chen’s egg in a few seconds.
Liu Ming was naturally taken aback. He called her loudly, but Bone Scorpion seemed to not hear it. After swallowing Si Chen’s egg, her body shook a few times, then she fell into slumber.
Liu Ming hurriedly released Divine Thought to check the situation of Bone Scorpion several times, and he found that she was just falling into a deep sleep. There was no other mutation. Only then he was slightly relieved.
“Master, what’s going on with Sister Xie’er?” Fei’er also turned into a boy and flew out. He asked while tilting his head to look at the sleeping Bone Scorpion.
“I’m not sure either. It should be that the aura released by this beast egg’s failure to hatch had stimulated a certain nature of Xie’er…” Liu Ming pondered for a while, then he said his guess.
“I see!” Fei’er breathed a sigh of relief.
As a result, Xie’er slept for 3 days and nights. Until the morning of the 4th, she turned into a girl and woke up.
Liu Ming had been cultivating in another secret room. After sensing Xie’er’s awakening aura, he walked over quickly. As soon as he saw Xie’er, he couldn’t help but blurt out,
“Xie’er, your forehead…”
On her forehead, there was an unknown golden crown mark.
“Master, what’s wrong with me? I feel a little confused…” Xie’er touched her forehead with a confused look.
“You swallowed the Si Chen’s egg that I failed to hatch and slept for 3 days.” Liu Ming said with a sigh of relief.
“I can only remember that… I smelled a strange smell, then my mind became blurred…” Xie’er tried hard to recall, but it was obviously in vain.
While speaking, Liu Ming used Divine Thought to examine Xie’er’s body carefully. Except for the sudden appearance of the golden crown mark on her forehead, there was no other special change.
And Xie’er himself did not feel any abnormality in her body.
Liu Ming was puzzled, so he had no choice but to give up investigating the matter for the time being.
After tidying up the secret room, he put Xie’er back in the spiritual beast bag around his waist and was ready to visit Yin Jiuling.
After all, since the end of the trip to the upper realm ruins, he had not had time to visit this master because of various trivial matters. He felt a little ashamed in his heart for this.
After a while, Yin Jiuling, who was sitting on the main seat in the main hall of Fallen Serene Peak, said gently to Liu Ming,
“Liu Ming, this trip to the upper realm ruins, you have done a great achievement. You not only won the honor for Fallen Serene Peak again, but yesterday, our sect also awarded the Hell Ghost Yin Tree that you brought out of the ruins to our peak. It will be a great help to the disciples of the Fallen Serene Peak.”
TL: He probably just fried the egg that Xie’er couldn’t help herself with…
