After a few days.
In an independent building on a peak in the Qing Family Manor.
A man with disheveled hair wearing half a silver mask, lying pale on his side on a jade bed. This person is none other than Qing Songzi who was injured by Liu Ming in the duel.
Near the edge of the bed, a woman in a green shirt stood there.
“Since Liu Ming came here, he was already looking for so many rare materials… By the way, is this source reliable?” Qing Songzi muttered to himself, then he asked in a cold voice.
“According to what happened in the Qing Luan Hall that day, after Liu Ming left, the family master suddenly summoned several Real Pellet State hall masters and issued a mission to find those materials. Although the family master didn’t state it clearly, it should be right.”
“The cost of these materials is not a small amount. I didn’t expect Liu Ming to have such a huge wealth. Hmph, that’s fine, then I’ll take it as compensation for my injury caused by his sneak attack.” Qing Songzi said with a gloomy face.
“Senior Qing, this person is now an elder. If we still trouble him, I’m afraid we can’t explain to the family master.” The woman in a green shirt said with some concern.
“There are still more than 30 years before the Heavenly Illusive Secret Realm opens. At that time, Liu Ming will definitely enter it. As long as you and I work together to kill him without leaving a trace… After coming out of the secret realm, I will be the master of the Qing Family. At that time, will anyone still dare to question it?” Qing Songzi said fiercely.
At this moment, Liu Ming naturally wouldn’t hear their conversation.
After meeting Qing Cong that day, he returned to his residence and personally placed several enchantments outside the cave house. Afterward, he let Xie’er in a side room to practice on her own.
After doing all this, he stayed in the secret room to retreat.
In the following time, he continued to refine the Celestial Tablet under the guidance of Mo Tian.
After this turmoil, Liu Ming gradually faded out of the sight of the Qing Family’s disciples. Except for having another powerful Celestial State cultivator, they didn’t feel anything different.
For quite a long time thereafter, the entire Qing Family lived quite peacefully. The remaining 3 Celestial State elders kept a low profile. Qing Songzi and Qing Shang did not trouble Liu Ming at all as if they had forgotten their existence.
In a blink of an eye, 30 years had pa.s.sed.
One day, in the secret room where Liu Ming was, the black and white Celestial Tablet was suspended in the air. It was by billowing black flames and gray-white mist.
Upon closer look, 2 of the 8 quaint runes on the tablet had been lighted up.
Suddenly, black and white lights shone on the Celestial Tablet, and the Illusive Demonic Pupil slowly opened.
Liu Ming, who was sitting cross-legged, opened his eyes and raised his hands. 2 black light beams flashed into the tablet, causing dense black runes to appear on the surface.
The black flames spread in all directions. The third quaint rune, which was originally bleak, seemed to be stimulated. After a slight shock, it absorbed the gray-white mist around and shone brightly.
Although Liu Ming’s face looked tired, his eyes were full of joy.
During these 30 years, with the aid of the demonic source in the cave house, his cultivation had gone a step further. He faintly touched the peak of the Celestial State early stage. He just needed an opportunity to advance to the Celestial State intermediate stage.
Today, Celestial Tablet was finally lit up with 3 magic weapon emblems.
According to Mo Tian, to refine further, he needed to reach the Celestial State intermediate stage.
In addition, perhaps due to the incorporation of true demon blood and Mo Tian’s blood, his skin color had subtly changed as if his skin was covered with a faint purple-black l.u.s.ter. He looked more and more like a demon.
Liu Ming kept away the Celestial Tablet. After pondering for a while, he walked out of the cave house.
Not long after, a black escape light flashed out from the cave house on top of Qing Lang Peak and disappeared into the distant sky after a few flashes.
A moment later, in the hall of Qingluan Hall.
“I didn’t expect that after so many years, Elder Liu’s cultivation has improved so much. It’s really a blessing for our family.” On the main seat, Qing Cong scanned Liu Ming, who was sitting beside, with Divine Thought and showed a hint of satisfaction.
“Family master has overpraised! By the way, is there any news about the materials entrusted back then?” Liu Ming cupped his fist at Qing Cong, then he changed the subject.
“To be honest, although I have worked hard on it, I have only found a small portion until today. How about this, you should check and accept these materials first. If there is news about other materials, I will help you to keep an eye out.” Qing Cong said with a low laugh when he heard this.
As soon as he said so, he waved his sleeves and several brocade boxes of different sizes appeared on the table in front of Liu Ming.
After Liu Ming checked them with Divine Thought, he couldn’t help feeling a little disappointed. These materials didn’t even meet his lowest expectations.
He opened these brocade boxes one by one to check, then he nodded and launched a bulging black leather bag toward Qing Cong.
“These demonic crystals should be more than enough to buy these materials. I hope family master can pay more attention to the remaining materials.” Liu Ming said slowly.

After Qing Cong weighed the weight of the leather bag, he put it back into his sleeve, nodded and said,
The sky above Qing Family Manor, Liu Ming appeared in a flash. He tapped his forehead with a finger, and his Divine Thought instantly covered the entire manor.
The entire manor was obviously on alert. Groups of Qing Family’s disciples in green armor could be seen patrolling back and forth.
And within the range of the manor, many enchantment fluctuations could be faintly detected. Some of the usually hidden formation enchantments had also been fully activated at this time.
It was no wonder. This trip to the Heavenly Illusive Secret Realm was not only a grand ceremony for the Qing Family to elect the new family master, but also 4 Celestial State elders would enter the secret realm at once. There would inevitably be people who wanted to take advantage of it. Such precautions were necessary.
After 15 minutes, when Liu Ming entered the Qing Luan Hall, he found that the hall was already full of members of the Qing Family. The 4 leading them were Family Master Qing Cong, Qing Songzi, Qing Shang and the bald muscular man Qing Gu.
Except for some hall masters of the Real Pellet State, the rest were some core members at the Crystallization Period. They all looked solemn.
Seeing Liu Ming step into the hall, everyone looked over in unison.
Qing Cong frowned and said loudly,
“Okay, since the 4 elders have arrived in time, I will open the secret realm later. The rest must guard it with all their effort. You must not take it lightly.”
After Qing Cong waved his hands with a serious face, all the hall masters present bowed and led their subordinates out of the hall.
“Family master, since Mr. Liu has arrived, let’s open the secret realm as soon as possible.” Qing Songzi seemed a little impatient. After glancing at Liu Ming with sideglance, he said so.
“It seems that Elder Qing Songzi is determined to success in this trip.” Hearing this, Qing Gu took a look at him and said with a slight smile.
“Hehe, Elder Qing Gu seems to have been preparing for this trip for many years. Don’t let me down later.” Qing Songzi said lightly.
“Okay, let’s not delay anymore. Everyone follows me.” Qing Cong said, stood up, and respectfully bowed 3 times at the portrait behind the main seat, then he stood up and took out a green token.
After launched a symbol into the token, the token shot a green light into the portrait.
With a rumbling sound, the surface of the portrait blurred and began to distort, turning into a deep tunnel of green light.
Qing Cong looked back at the 4 of them and disappeared into the tunnel in a flash.
Seeing this, Liu Ming and the other 3 elders jumped into the tunnel subsequently.
TL: Will Qing Gu help Liu Ming, so it will be a 2vs2?
