Chapter 1020: One Body Two Souls

“Are you Senior Xue?” Liu Ming flashed and stood a dozen meters away from the man with a square face, and he scanned with Divine Thought.

In this respect, the middle-aged man was a Real Pellet State later stage cultivator who was only one step away from the Real Pellet State perfect stage.

While surprised in his heart, he couldn’t help but wonder. Why would this person be willing to take such a big risk to sneak into the ghost army with such a high level of cultivation. If his identity was exposed, he would surely be dead.

Moreover, with such a high level of cultivation, this person was definitely not a nobody in the ghost army. He could actually hide from the upper level of the ghost army or even the mystic ghost?

“Yes, I’m Xue Hu. You must be Liu Ming sent by the army this time right?” The middle-aged man looked up and down at Liu Ming, then he asked in a hoarse voice. In this barren forest and blood rain, it sounded very eerie.

Liu Ming didn’t answer, but he took out a golden token and spat his blood into it.

In an instant, the spirit patterns on the golden token blurred and transformed into a clear avatar, which was exactly the appearance of Liu Ming. There was an additional line of distorted ancient texts below.

“Whoosh“, Liu Ming threw the activated token to the opposite side.

“Very well, it seems that there is no problem with your identity. In this case, I…”

On the side, the middle-aged man took the token, checked it carefully, and then glanced at Liu Ming and nodded. When he was about to continue, his face was twisted suddenly, revealing a trace of pain. His breathing also became rapid.

Seeing this situation, Liu Ming hurriedly took 2 steps back in shock. There was a hint of vigilant in his eyes.

After the man with a square face gasped a few times like a beast and his face twisted for a while, he threw a gray jade slip to Liu Ming.

“I have already recorded the relevant information in the jade slip. Take it… and get out of here quickly.” The man with a square face gradually had a layer of black air on his face. His body gradually exuded a murderous yin qi. He said the sentence intermittently.

Liu Ming caught the jade slip and peeked inside with Divine Thought, then he nodded and kept it away. When he looked at the man’s painful face, he asked hesitantly,

“Senior Xue, are you alright?”

“I’m fine. Get out of here! Now!” The man with a square looked struggling as if he was suffering from some unbearable torment. He suddenly shouted fiercely.

Liu Ming hesitated for a moment. Although he didn’t know what happened to the person in front, since the other party didn’t want to tell him, he couldn’t care much about it. He cupped his fist, wrapped himself in a black mist and flew in the direction from which he came.

At this time, the rotten rain was pouring down. The ground was covered with a faint bloody mist, so that he didn’t have to hide his tracks deliberately. After bypassing the tall tower building in front, he continued to fly toward the distance. Soon, he left the scope of the giant mountain fortress.

After leaving the giant mountain fortress, his tense mind was finally relieved slightly. As long as he sent the jade slip back to Golden Light City, he would be considered to have completed the important mission and made a great contribution. Needless to say, a million contribution points reward was enough for him to be excited for a while.

At this moment, a roaring sound from far to near suddenly came from behind, but a black ghost air galloped from behind. In a few seconds, it was less than a hundred meters behind him.

Liu Ming flashed and landed on the ground in shock.

The black air that was chasing also landed abruptly.

When the black light faded, the man with a square face was revealed.

“Why is senior chasing after me? Do you have something else to tell me?” Liu Ming asked in a startle.

Black air was dense around the man with a square face. He didn’t look painful as before, and he didn’t reply immediately. He just stared blankly at Liu Ming.

Just when Liu Ming was about to ask more, a tall ghost figure appeared behind him with a claw attack, breaking Liu Ming’s head

At the same time, the man with a square face standing not far away suddenly dissipated into black air. It turned out to be an avatar.

This tall ghost that suddenly appeared was about 9 meters tall. It had a strong body and sharp ghost claws. End even more strangely, 2 faces could be seen on its head!

On the left was the appearance of the man with a square face while on the right was a ferocious green ghost face.

At this moment, the man with a square face had his eyes closed as if he was in a deep sleep, but the pair of bloody eyes on the ghost face was full of bloodthirsty madness.

The tall ghost let out an evil laughter, but the next moment, the laughter stopped abruptly, because Liu Ming’s figure also dissipated into black air. It was also an afterimage.

Immediately afterward, Liu Ming’s figure slowly emerged from a dozen meters away, looking at the tall ghost coldly. He frowned after seeing the 2 different faces.

“Tsk tsk… just a mere Pseudo Pellet State, but your movement is quite fast…” The tall ghost turned around with a smirk.

“Are you Senior Xue Hu?” With a flash of purple light in Liu Ming’s hand, the Bitter Wheel Sword had already appeared in his hand. He asked slowly while thinking. This place was still not far from the giant mountain fortress. If he fought with the tall ghost, he wasn’t sure of killing the tall ghost in an instant. Even worse, the intense spiritual power fluctuation would even be noticed by the fortress.

“He he, how could I be that worthless Xue Hu! Although you are about to die, you still have to remember that it’s me, Ghost Hu, who sent you to death! I haven’t appeared for a long time, and I didn’t expect to meet such a good food immediately. Boy, hand over your flesh obediently…” The tall ghost laughed frantically with a twisted face. Its eyes were emitting red light. The laughter stopped abruptly as it pounced forward.

But at this moment, the ghost creature’s body suddenly trembled violently, and it suddenly fell to the ground while holding its head. It slammed its head and let out a beastly roar. It seemed to be suffering.

The 2 faces twisted together. Sometimes the human face opened his eyes and sometimes the ghost face opened its eyes. The body was also changing back and forth between human form and ghost form.

Liu Ming looked at the scene in front of him with a look of surprise. The Bitter Wheel Sword in his hand was swollen, but he didn’t slash down.

At this moment, the tall evil ghost finally stopped struggling and stood up slowly. The eyes of the human face on the left opened, and he seemed that he had regained his senses. The ghost face on the right had its eyes closed, but its eyebrows were still twitching slightly as if it would wake up at any time.

His body had almost returned to human form, but his right arm and half of his chest were still in ghost form, which look very weir strange.

“Senior Xuehu?” Liu Ming frowned and asked tentatively.

“Yes, it’s me…” The man with a square face seemed to be trying his best to suppress ghost face. He replied with some difficulty.

“Senior, you…”

“I’m really sorry. It wasn’t my intention to attack you just now. To be honest, there are 2 souls in my body. It was the ghost soul that dominated my body just now.” The man with a square face sighed,

“One body two souls?” Liu Ming couldn’t help but blurt out.

“Yes! I don’t have much time. I will soon be unable to suppress the other part… I was ordered by the upper level to sneak into the ghost army as an undercover agent. I first use mystic art to transform my body into ghost body, then in order to fool the ghost army upper level, I practice a ghost technique given by the sect. However, I didn’t expect that my cultivation grew by leaps and bounds after converting into ghost body. I soared from the Real Pellet State early stage to the perfect stage. My cultivation had been stuck for decades when I was human. Turning into ghost body really surprised me a lot.” The man with a square face said quickly.

Liu Ming’s eyes flickered when he heard this, but he didn’t keep away the Bitter Wheel Sword.

“The reason why I took the risk to accept this spying mission was also to gain an opportunity to improve my cultivation and break through the bottleneck. As a result, I had such a gain in the wrong method, which made me ecstatic. As soon as I had this idea, I could no longer control the greed in my mind. I continued to corrupt in it. To ease my training, I remove the mark set by the sect to resist yin qi. In this way, I could no longer stop my body from turning into a ghost. However, as a human cultivator, I was unwilling to turn into a ghost creature. But as I broke through the bottleneck one after another, I was unwilling to give up on practicing ghost technique. As such, under the conflicting thoughts for a long time, my consciousness split into 2 souls that fought each other. In the early years, my human soul could still take the dominant. As my cultivation rose, my ghost soul is becoming stronger and stronger. I’m afraid it is not long for me to lose my mind completely..” The man with a square face showed a trace of sadness.

Hearing this, Liu Ming was naturally stunned, but he also understood it.

When they met in the soul shifting forest just now, it was the soul of the human cultivator who dominated, but after he left, the ghost soul seized control and pursued him.
