Chapter 403: Lan Xi

Demon’s Diary
     Two days later, in a rather delicate and elegant hall of the underwater palace.

    Siren King in a white robe sat on the main seat between the two rows of white jade tables and chairs.

    The hall was small. There were a few pots of unknown blue flowers beside the window, and a man and a woman standing on both sides.

    The woman had a beautiful face, dressed in a lotus green dress, a slender body figure, fair and smooth skin. She looked about 20 years old. This girl was Jia Lan.

    She now bowed her head expressionlessly, looking at her toes. She seemed to be thinking about something.

    The man’s hair was gray, and his face was wrinkled. It was a humpbacked elder that was about 60 years old. He held an account book in his hand while he was standing sideways. He kept reporting to Siren King nonstop.

    “Sir Siren King, after you released the news that you were seriously injured in the catastrophe, those of Sea Creature Clan really put their guard down. In the past year, we quickly eliminated the small and medium forces like the Golden Scale at the edge. Except for the stubborn cultivators, other forces are willing to swear allegiance to Siren King. They even offer…

    But at this moment, Siren King’s face suddenly changed. He suddenly raised his hand to interrupt the old man, then he waved his hand to signal him to retreat.

    The humpbacked elder opened and closed his mouth. Although he was a little inexplicable, he dared not go against anything. He hurriedly quit the hall after he cupped his fist.

    “You also step back first.” Siren King’s face was a little gloomy. He also ordered the woman on the side.

    “Yes”

    Only then Jia Lan regained her thought. She retreated hurriedly with fear after giving a bow to Siren King.

    After seeing Jia Lan walk out of the hall, the young man in white robe immediately shook his sleeves and took out a scroll with a faint silver light. After opening it slowly, the portrait of a stunning Beastkin Clan young woman who looked similar to Ye Tianmei appeared again in front of him.

    The original lifelike portrait of the woman had a thin layer of water mist on it at the moment. It was more blurred than before. At the same time, there was a faint blood light on the young woman.

    “Is that the time is not enough? If that’s the case, I can’t wait for another ten years. I must find a good timing early.” Siren King looked at the portrait of the beautiful woman in front of him. After his face looked uncertain, he murmured.

    Afterward, he took back the painted scroll. He suddenly walked toward a stone pillar behind his seat. With one gesture, he spat out a faint blue talisman, and it disappeared into the stone pillar instantly.

    With a muffled sound, the blue light flashed on the surface of the stone pillar, then a black small door suddenly appeared from it.

    The young man in white robe flashed into it without hesitation. He walked along a light blue stone step to go down.

    Then the small door behind him closed again after a flash.

    Young man in white robe walked for about 15 minutes in the dark. Suddenly, the scene in front of him light up. He was actually in a crystal ice cave full of ice.

    The ice cave was only about acres in size, and it was empty inside except for a huge icicle as thick as a water tank in the center.

    In the icicles, a stunning young woman in a white palace dress closed her eyes slightly. She was being sealed in the ice.

    This female face was the same as the portrait of the beauty on the previous painted scroll!

    When the young man in white robe saw the woman in the icicle, the indifferent look on his face disappeared quickly. His expression immediately became infatuated as he walked step by step toward the icicle.

    ……

    In the stone cave of the mineral vein at the bottom of the sea, Liu Ming was sitting with his eyes closed at the moment. His expression seemed to be a bit painful. Sweats kept coming down from his cheeks on both sides. There was a trace of black gas rolling randomly on his body surface.

    Above the open space in front of him was a black bottle with its cork that had been pulled out, and it was empty inside.

    After about 15 minutes, Liu Ming’s expression changed. He suddenly spat out a turquoise toxic blood with a few black silk.

    After the blood fell to the ground, a pungent smell suddenly spread through the stone cave, and a small hole was corroded in the blink of an eye.

    Liu Ming opened his eyes and exhaled for a long time, then he released his mental power to scan the situation inside his body. He frowned.

    Not long ago, when the toxic in his body triggered as it approached the one month period, he swallowed the unknown egg in the black bottle without hesitation.

    When the egg went into his stomach, it immediately became a cluster of smelly green liquid that spread quickly and wrapped Liu Ming’s internal organs in it.

    Once the black mist on the original organ touched the green liquid, its diffusion rate was suppressed.

    However, it was just being suppressed temporarily, it would still be triggered after some time. This could have the same effect as the temporary antidote, but it couldn’t can’t really eliminate the toxicity.

    In the days when he got the nameless eggs, he naturally examined it many times. Although he could not recognize its origin, he also determined that it was harmless to him. Only then he consumed it at ease.

    He still went to the exchange area on time to exchange for this month’s antidote. On the one hand, he could ensure nothing went wrong. On the other hand, he did not want to attract the attention of others.

    After all, since he killed Boss Sha with one sword, those who dared to trouble him became less, but he also received a lot of attention from small and medium-sized forces.

    And this time, since the leaders of the two major forces in the mine were preparing to escape from this place, they must have a well-thought plan. It was naturally a good opportunity for him to escape from this underwater mine.

    As long as he could leave here and could temporarily suppress the toxic in his body, he was not afraid that he couldn’t find the real detoxification method outside.

    His only concern now was that he didn’t quite understand Lan Xi and Yan Luo’s nature, and he was still confused about the specific escape route.

    Listening to the tone of Xin Yuan’s words, Lan Xi and Yan Luo’s method to leave the underwater mine seemed to have to take a considerable amount of risk.

    Without fully understanding the overall plan, he also needed to take some precautionary measures for being abandoned after serving his purpose.

    As Liu Ming thought until here, he seemed to remember something, then he couldn’t help smiling.

    At this time, the situation was similar to the scene when he fled from the sinking Deadly Island before entering the Cultivation Realm.

    At that time, among the hundreds of people who had promised to flee the island together, only a few dozen people could finally board the small boat and escape from the island before the island sank.

    And these dozens of people were all the most cunning and powerful powerhouses on Deadly Island.

    “If someone really can escape this place alive, I must be one of them.” Liu Ming flashed a cold light in his eyes, murmured and closed his eyes again.

    ……

    After a few days.

    Xin Yuan appeared in the cave as Liu Ming expected.

    At this moment, he had completely recovered from the injuries he suffered at the time of Evil Disaster. Although his face was still pale, his whole body was exuding the breath when Liu Ming first met him.

    “Brother Liu, I think you must have made a decision for the past few days right.” Xin Yuan said with a smile when he saw Liu Ming.

    “The thing you gave earlier can indeed temporarily restrain the poison of Sea Emperor Pill in the body, but I don’t know how long this substance can suppress the toxicity at one time?” Liu Ming did not directly answer Xin Yuan’s question, but he asked with a slight smile.

    “I took this only once a few months ago. According to Brother Yan Luo, it should be able to suppress the toxicity for half a month, and the actual effect is indeed the same. Although it was not as long as the antidote from those guards, the eggs can be kept for a long time fortunately.” As Xin Yuan listened, he touched his chin and said frankly.

    “In this way, as long as the quantity can be guaranteed, it is enough for us not to worry about the poison in the body in a short time. Since that is the case, then I will join.” Liu Ming was not surprised by this answer, then he nodded immediately.

    “It’s so good, then I will go back and report to Brother Yan.” Xin Yuan suddenly revealed a smile.

    “Wait! Before that, I want to meet Brother Yan and Senior Lan again. I would like to ask some questions face-to-face. Can Brother Xin bring this message to them.” After Liu Ming’s eyes flashed, he stopped the young man and said solemnly.

    “Naturally, since Brother Liu agreed to join, even if I didn’t speak, the two of them would take the initiative to meet you first.” Xin Yuan waved his hands to Liu Ming as he expected Liu Ming would ask this, then he promised his request.

    Then, the man left with a gust of wind.

    ……

    Five days later.

    In a cave far away from the main vein of the deep sea mineral vein, in an extremely secret stone cave.

    Liu Ming in a grey robe stood calmly side by side with two other extraordinary foreign clan people.

    The person sitting not far in front of them was the rumored Lan Xi.

    He was a seemingly ordinary, unremarkable old man.

    His figure was slightly thin, his face was ruddy, and his eyes were slightly turbid. The most conspicuous feature was his long dark blue hair and the glittering short horn with half an inch size that grew on top of his head.

    Liu Ming’s eyes narrowed, and he looked at his two arms that were unharmed.

    Obviously, the Crystallization Period powerhouse’s arm that was lost in the rumors had now apparently been regrow through some kind of mystic arts.

    At the moment, Lan Xi sat expressionless on a stone chair in the middle, and Yan Luo with bronze skin stood beside him with a smile.

    Seeing this, Liu Ming frowned subconsciously.

    This scene was a bit unexpected, and it seemed that the rumours of the two men having similar strength in the mine were just simply a smokescreen.

    Lan Xi’s strength was definitely above Yan Luo, and the two have never appeared before them while one was sitting, the other was standing.

    “The three of you are the candidates who were recently recommended to me by others, and you all demanded that you want to see me. Now that the three of you have met me, ask me if you have any questions. However, I can only answer a question for each person, it’s best to think about it before asking.” Lan Xi’s deep eyes assessed the three people in front of him, then he spoke lightly.
