Demon's Diary Chapter 10
“Yes, Spirit Master. I am Mu Ming Zhu from the Mu Clan in Guan Lin. This is my Verification Sill.” Mu Ming Zhu quickly took out a black metal sill and held it out with both hands.
“Oh! You are a clansmen of Mu Sister! Anyhow, I am not a Spirit Master, I’m only a Spirit Apostle. A Spirit Master wouldn’t show his face to mortals that have not even awakened their spiritual sea.” The man’s cold expression loosened as he said this, and waved his hand a little.
The metal plate that the girl in purple had shot up into the air before landing firmly in the man’s hands.
The escort then formed a one-handed technique, and with black light floating on his finger, pointed at the sill.
With a popping noise, the metal plate shook slightly, before expelling a misty white light mirror.
Within the light mirror, another girl in purple appeared. Besides the difference in clothing, her facial demeanor was very similar. Perhaps she was slightly younger in the light mirror.
“Yes, this is you without a doubt. You can go stand over there.” The man gave a glance over to the side and nodded his head.
When Mu Ming Zhu heard this, she happily agreed and headed over to the middle of the platform in a pleased manner.
“I… I am Gao Chong. It’s a pleasure to meet the Emissary!” The tall young man also took out a similar metal sill from his chest and nervously held it up high.
“Gao Chong… You are one of the three loose practitioners in this Awakening ceremony. Not bad, maybe you’ll become a fellow disciple with me. Let me see your Verification Sill.” Amazingly, the man in black squeezed out a smile and spoke very politely.
With the same hand, the spell was cast again.
Naturally, Gao Chong passed without any problems.
“Bai Clan’s Bai Chong Tian. Please inspect my Verification Badge.” Liu Ming took a deep breath and also passed the item in his hands up.
Even though he was very nervous on the inside, no abnormalities could be seen from the outside.
This time, the man casually swept his eyes over Liu Ming, before quietly taking the sill.
The same white light came out of the sill and another “Bai Chong Tian” came out in a lifelike manner.
Liu Ming gave a glance at the white light and his heart skipped.
The “Bai Chong Tian” in the white light looked almost eighty to ninety percent similar to him. Though, at the time, he was wearing a white shirt and had an arrogant look. This and a few other points were a little different from Liu Ming.
The man inspected the “Bai Chong Tian” in the image a few times and looked down at Liu Ming. His face showed an expression of surprise.
Liu Ming’s heart sank and the bronze bracelet started to shake a little. However, he remained still.
“Hmm. In this one year, you changed quite a bit. Looks like you’ve made quite a bit of preparation for this awakening ceremony. That previous impetuous aura seems to have disappeared.” The man said slowly.
Liu Ming heard this and in his heart he let loose a sigh of relief. He quickly bowed and replied, “I know that my talent is mediocre, so I could only work hard in order to gain a slight chance in the awakening.”
“Haha. Awakening the spiritual sea is not something hard work can help you through. But whatever, telling you this stuff now is useless. Later, you will naturally know more about this. Find a place to sit down, we will be going to the next location.” The man lightly chuckled but did not say much more besides the orders.
The other youths heard this and sat down cross-legged.
Seeing this, Liu Ming and the other two also found a place to sit down as well on the platform.
It’s unknown if it’s due to them being escorted from the same place, but the trio did not separate to sit with other people.
However, though the trio looked at each other, nobody said anything.
At this time, the man in the air flipped his hand and took out a white disk. With a flash, it flew up into the air and disappeared into clouds.
The next moment, the surrounding statues let out a buzzing sound before shining in a soft light. Then, with a loud noise, the platform starting to move toward a direction with a large inertia.
Many young men and women that did not sit tightly fell over.
The girl in purple in front of Liu Ming was also unprepared and her delicate body twisted and started to fall. Luckily, the tall young man to the side had good reflexes and quickly grabbed onto the girl’s arm and steadily pulled her back.
“Thank you brother Gao!” Mu Ming Zhu steadily sat down again and with a flush spoke to the tall young man.
“It’s… it’s nothing. It’s just a small matter.” When Gao Chong saw the girl’s response, he had a bit of a helpless look.
After the girl in purple gave a smile to Gao Chong, she turned around toward Liu Ming and gave him a glare.
Liu Ming only gave a faint smile that didn’t look like a smile.
He sat steadily from the beginning and could have obviously given the young girl a hand. However, he had no intentions of helping.
Due to this, Mu Ming Zhu’s impression of him worsened.
However, at this time, Liu Ming shifted his gaze from the two toward a white statue near him.
The statue was very strange. It was like a monkey but not a monkey, like a bat but not a bat. It was as if it was monkey that had a pair of bat wings growing out. Due to this, the statue was extremely ferocious, making others feel chills in their hearts as they looked at it.
“Hmph. A small clan really is a small clan. You actually don’t even know about night-crawlers, one of the most basic type of ghosts.” Mu Ming Zhu scoffed and said in a sarcastic tone.
“Oh, Miss Mu knows what this is?” Liu Ming asked curiously.
Next to him, the Gao Chong also had widened eyes.
At first, Mu Ming Zhu didn’t want to talk with Liu Ming any further, but seeing Gao Chong’s expression, she once again remembered what her third uncle had said. With a thought, she put on a smile and said, “Since Brother Gao wishes to know, then I will share my a bit of my small knowledge. Night Crawlers are also called Yecha ghosts and are the most common of the 108 ghosts in the hundred ghost diagram. Besides being able to fly, they don’t really have any special powers.” Mu Ming Zhu was worthy of being a daughter of the Mu family. Even though she was not a part of the Barbarian Ghost sect yet, she still knew so much about ghosts. Not only did she explain every detail of night crawlers, she also spoke of the other statues of ghosts nearby. This attracted many other young men and women over.
“Ha. What’s the point of understanding these low Soldier rank ghosts? Once we really join the sect, you’d at least have to tame a General rank ghost to not waste learning the art of exorcism.” A tall, brown haired teenager sneered to the side.
“You talk pretty big. According to what I know, even amongst Spirit Apostles within the sect, over half of them can only tame Soldier rank ghosts. Only a small number of disciples can tame a Captain rank ghost. As for General rank ghosts, even amongst Spirit Masters, only a few are able to tame them.” Mu Ming Zhu looked at the brown hair teenager, and responded without reservation.
“Even if others cannot do it, that does not mean I, Lei Zhen, cannot do it.” The brown hair teenager responded with a smile.
“Lei Zhen? You are from the Lei Clan?” Mu Ming Zhu heard the name of the teenager and the color of her face changed.
The others around also sucked down a cold breath as they heard the name; their eyes displayed a trace of fear.
Although the Bai Clan can be said to be a first-rate family in their area, the Lei clan can rank in the top three within the entire Da Xuan Country. Within the clan, they have dozens of Spirit Apostles, and even have a Spirit Master.
“Even if you are from the Lei Family, this type of speech should wait until after the Awakening ceremony.” Mu Ming Zhu was secretly surprised but held onto her pride. She was reluctant to lose face for her family.
However, this time, Lei Zhen did not say any more. He took a glance at the tall teenager next to the girl and left with a laugh.
From beginning to end, he did not even glance at Liu Ming.
Liu Ming sat on the ground without moving, and turned a blind eye to everything in general.
On Savage Island, the more hidden one is, the better. Because, this was the only way to survive a bit longer.
Those with a lot of strength that enter into the spotlight, generally wouldn’t live past a year.
Although the outside world is different from Savage Island, Liu Ming did not try to change this aspect of himself.
At this time, Mu Ming Zhu and Gao Chong could clearly be seen to be closer, speaking warmly to each other. Every now and then, a small giggling could be heard. Whether intentionally or unintentionally, they excluded Liu Ming completely.
But Liu Ming does not care at all and once again focused his mind; he started training once more right there.
In the remaining seven to eight days, the platform would stop every half a day, picking up anywhere from three to tens of youths.
Once the platform held around three to four hundred people and could not hold any more, the man in black stopped picking up any more youths and directed the black cloud to return back to the sect.
Half a month later, the giant black cloud flew over many rolling mountains and went straight into the depths of a dark forest.
In one breath, they entered over 100 miles, appearing in front of a mountain range with over a dozen mountains.
On the other side of the sky came a rumbling noise, and another black cloud came toward the same mountain range.
After a while, the two black clouds both arrived at the mountain range and landed on the side of one of the mountains.
“Go down, the gate of the sect is here.”
The man in black suddenly appeared in midair and ordered, As the platform landed firmly on the ground, the black cloud and light disappeared.
Many of the young boys and girls excitedly jumped off the platform.
Liu Ming stopped at the edge of the platform and carefully looked around at his surroundings.
