Chapter 638: Direct Disciple
In a side hall of Tianjian Peak, Long Yanfei was looking at a white stone wall thoughtfully.
At this time, a man in a white brocade robe pushed in and walked quickly behind Long Yanfei; he was Sha Tongtian.
“Senior Sister Apprentice Long, have you heard that Liu Ming actually broke through the bottleneck to the Crystallization Period?” Sha Tongtian asked, but there was a hint of excitement in his words.
“En, I also just heard about this. Although the success rate to break through to the Crystallization Period with the Three Spiritual Pulse was low, I heard that he spent a lot of contribution points to borrow the Ying Yang Separation and Reunion Mirror. In this way, it is still possible to break through the bottleneck to the Crystallization Period. Why does Junior Fellow Apprentice Sha seem a little happy?” Long Yanfei looked back at Sha Tongtian and asked strangely.
“Great, very great! I initially thought I had no chance to fight with him again in this life!” Sha Tongtian suddenly raised his head and laughed, then he threw the sound transmission disc in his hand to the coffee table in front of Long Yanfei and turned around without looking back.
After breaking through to the Crystallization Period, he originally thought that Liu Ming would stop at the Condensation Period later stage for his life. Even if Liu Ming’s Sword Controlling Technique was more powerful, Sha Tongtian would still surpass him by one day, so he had always felt regretful for that.
Long Yanfei looked in the direction where Sha Tongtian left with a complicated expression. She looked thoughtful.
In a secret room in the Piaomiao Peak, Jia Lan also held a light blue communication jade talisman in her hand with a smile on her face.
After a moment of light in her beautiful eyes, she closed her eyes again and meditated at ease.
Liu Ming successfully broke through to the Crystallization Period with Three Spiritual Pulse. The news immediately caused a sensation. Within a few days, it almost spread to most of Thousands Spirit Mountain.
Some ordinary disciples who only had Three Spiritual Pulse were surprised after hearing this news.
Some previous news about Liu Ming like he was the winner in the outer door major competition, but he was not accepted as an inner disciple by any courtyard master and he passed the Void Spirit Tower’s 36th floor alone with the Condensation Period later stage. After remaining silent for many years, he gradually returned to the people’s sight and became 1 of the heated discussions among the disciples after the meal.
At the same time, on a mountain near Fallen Serene Peak, in a large-scale cave house’s secret room, the space here was filled with strong yin qi.
“Master. Someone of our peak has broken through to the Crystallization Period.” Outside the secret room, the young man in a black robe said respectfully.
“Feng’er, didn’t I tell you that master is retreating, so don’t interrupt master if it’s not an important matter.” Inside the cave house, an old man’s deep voice came out.
“Sorry for disturbing master.” The young man in a black robe turned and left.
“Wait a minute, who is the disciple who advanced to the Crystallization Period? Master has only retreated for 2 years. There are only a dozen Condensation Period disciples in Fallen Serene Peak, but I haven’t found anyone with the potential of breaking through to the Crystallization Period in such a short time.” The deep voice sounded in the secret room again.
“Reporting to master, it’s Liu Ming, Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu.” The young man in a black robe hurriedly turned around and replied again.
A powerful aura burst out from the secret room in an instant, and strands of yin qi burst out from the crack in the door of the secret room.
A black light flashed on the gray door, and it opened in an instant. An old man wrapped in yin qi came out. This person was the slightly gray-haired elder surnamed Yu whom Liu Ming met at Fallen Serene Peak that day.
“Is he the disciple who joined our peak by passing the 36th floor of the Void Spirit Tower with the strength of the Condensation State later stage?” The middle-aged man retrieved the yin qi all over his body, revealing a handsome face that didn’t match his voice. He asked with a look of surprise.
“It’s this disciple.” The young man in a black robe was shocked by the powerful spiritual pressure. He only managed to stand still after taking 1 step back.
“As far as I know, after joining Fallen Serene Peak, this disciple has not been accepted by other elders. On that day, I did not accept him as my disciple because of the limited resources of the sect. But since he is now in the Crystallization Period, the situation is different. Do you know he is now?” The middle-aged man murmured a few words thoughtfully, then he asked the young man in a black robe.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu must be still in the Yin Yang Separation and Reunion Hall, but he should be out in 2 days.” The young man in a black robe said after thinking about it.
“Very well, you go to his cave house and wait. As soon as you see this disciple, tell him that master wants to see him and bring him here.” The middle-aged man instructed with a straight face, then he got back into the secret room, and the door of the secret room was closed by a gray mist.
After the young man in a black robe agreed, he immediately turned around and left the cave house, jumped onto a black cloud, and flew toward the Fallen Serene Peak.
A similar scenario was staged almost simultaneously in the cave house of several elders in the Fallen Serene Peak. After learning about Liu Ming’s situation, these Real Pellet State elders seemed to be a little moved and wanted to accept him as disciple.
However, just as these elders sent out their disciples to recruit Liu Ming, they all got a piece of news that made them curse in their minds.
It turned out that on the day Liu Ming broke through to the Crystallization Period, Yin Jiuling sent someone to summon Liu Ming to the Fallen Serene Peak Hall.
Outside the main hall of Fallen Serene Peak, a black cloud flashed. After the light faded, a young man in a black robe was revealed. The man was Liu Ming.
After he succeeded to crystallize in the Separation and Reunion Hall, he planned to stay in his secret room for a few days to consolidate his cultivation.
As soon as he left the Separation and Reunion Hall, he received a message from Yin Jiuling to summon him to the main hall.
Since he was summoned by the peak master, he naturally couldn’t reject it. He immediately rushed straight to the Fallen Serene Peak without stopping.
At this time, in the main hall, Yin Jiuling had already sat on the main seat in the middle as if he had been waiting for Liu Ming for a long time.
“Disciple greets to peak master.” As soon as Liu Ming walked into the hall, he respectfully stepped forward.
“Liu Ming, when you and Xiao Wu won the nine-color spirit deer for me that day, I found that your strength is extraordinary. I didn’t expect that in just a few years, you successfully broke through to the Crystallization Period with Three Spiritual Pulse. This is really gratifying.” Yin Jiuling’s voice was more deep than usual, and there was a slight smile on the half-withered face.
“Master has overpraised. I just got lucky.” Liu Ming lowered his head slightly and said modestly.
“What a lucky! Since you have been able to advance to the Crystallization Period, no matter what, you are now qualified to be my direct disciple. I won’t talk too much nonsense. I ask you, are you willing to be my disciple?” After Yin Jiuling clapped and laughed, he asked suddenly.
“Disciple is of course willing!” Although Liu Ming had faintly expected this, he was still happy after hearing the words. He bowed and replied without hesitation.
For him, being able to be a disciple of a Real Pellet State powerhouse was something he dreamed of, let alone it was Yin Jiuling, the master of this peak.
“Okay! From today, you will be the direct disciple of me, Yin Jiuling.” Yin Jiuling changed his usual cold face and said with a smile.
“Disciple Liu Ming meet the master.” Liu Ming’s face was full of respect, and he paid his respects once again.
Yin Jiuling nodded slightly and waved his sleeve. A golden talisman was launched, and it landed slowly into Liu Ming’s hand.
“This is a Tai Yin Thunder Talisman. Its power is equivalent to the full blow of the Real Pellet State powerhouse. This is your gift for becoming my disciple today. In case you encounter a powerful enemy in the future, it can be used as a life-saving mean.” Yin Jiuling said with a slight smile.
“Thank you, master.” Liu Ming was overjoyed hearing that, then he kept this golden talisman into the Sumeru Ring.
Then Liu Ming asked Yin Jiuling some questions about his cultivation, and Yin Jiuling patiently answered them one by one. He even shared with Liu Ming some things to pay attention to when he first advanced to the Crystallization Period.
About 2 hours later, Liu Ming left and returned to his cave house.
Not long after, the news that Liu Ming was accepted as a direct disciple by Yin Jiuling spread through the entire Fallen Serene Peak after he left the main hall.
Several other elders of Real Pellet State who were interested in accepting Liu Ming as disciple couldn’t help but sigh about the quick decision of Yin Jiuling. Especially Elder Yu, he was depressed for a long while because of this matter.
But since Liu Ming had already become a direct disciple of Yin Jiuling, these could just let it go.
Inside the secret room of the Fallen Serene Peak’s cave house.
At this moment, Liu Ming was sitting cross-legged on a yellow futon. He was checking his sea of consciousness with his eyes closed.
At this time, on the Celestial Tablet in the sea of consciousness, the hourglass had not much left. It should not be long before the next mysterious bubble absorbed spiritual power. According to Luo Hou’s previous statement, it should be within this year.
The spiritual power crystals that he got for reaching the Crystallization Period had 9 more than the disciples with Sky Spiritual Pulse.
The color of the spiritual power crystals that appeared later was a bit peculiar. After careful consideration, he guessed that it was mostly related to the demonic will in his body or the strange crystals in the giant demon that caused him to demonize after devouring.
But anyway, after the advancing to the Crystallization Period, the spiritual power in his body had surged amazingly. There should be no problem for the next round of absorption of the mysterious bubble.
Every time his spiritual power was absorbed by the mysterious bubble, he would enter the mysterious space for a period of time. According to his previous experience, he should be able to stay there for 16 years this time. He needed to utilize this period of time well.
He just broke through to the early stage of the Crystallization Period, if he wanted to boost his spiritual power to next small realm in a short time, he still needed to rely on elixir.
Although he could refine the cold condensing pill of the flawless grade, this elixir had a significant effect on the Condensation Period, but it had little effect on the Crystallization Period’s spiritual power. Therefore, if he wanted to quickly increase his spiritual power, he needed to find another elixir that could boost the spiritual power of the Crystallization Period.
After thinking about it for a while, Liu Ming took out the bottle of qiongyu liquid and the spiritual beast bag containing the little octopus from the Sumeru Ring.
He opened the bag gently and scanned with Divine Thought. The octopus inside had grown from the size of an inch at the time of birth to the size of half a foot now. However, when he tried to communicate with it using the summoning technique, it still didn’t respond.
Over the years, as long as he had time, he would throw a few pieces of spirit stones into the spiritual beast bag for it to absorb. Now after these years of accumulation, although it still hadn’t developed its mind, its aura had faintly reached the Spirit Apostle later stage.
Can he find a new elixir recipe to practice? Now, not only his physical strength was tyrannical, his spiritual power was also at the top among his peers. What can the little octopus do? Is it an offensive type, defensive type or supportive type?
