Chapter 526: One Step Ahead of Everyone!
Tang Li Xue launched another attack on the crystal dome in anxiousness since their time was almost up.
Tang Li Xue shot the compressed fire bullets rapidly toward a single point on the crystal dome, just like what the light green fox was doing until now.
But after more than 20 seconds, both Tang Li Xue and the light green fox still failed to even leave any crack on the magenta fox's defense crystal dome.
The magenta fox was laughing out loud as if it was mocking the futile effort of Tang Li Xue and the light green fox.
"Damn it~! Then let's try if you can take this!" Tang Li Xue muttered in an angry tone as she activated the [Spider Scorpion Transformation] to increase her strength even more, then she whipped one of its three stinger tails toward the crystal dome.
[Moon Shattering Strike]!
Magenta fox's defense crystal dome was shaking violently as Tang Li Xue's [Moon Shattering Strike] struck it heavily.
Even the magenta fox stopped laughing and stared at its defense crystal dome that shook like jelly in shock and disbelief.
Tang Li Xue's [Moon Shattering Strike] might have extremely powerful defense penetration power, but unfortunately, it was still far from enough to break the magenta fox's defense crystal dome.
Magenta fox sighed in relief when its defense crystal dome stopped shaking and went back again to normal.
Tang Li Xue put on an expression of shock, anger, disbelief, and unwillingness.
While her perfect copy secretly took a glance at the timer in the center of the closed room.
'Only 5 seconds left! It is time for us to make our moves! Hope your plan really works this time... or all of our efforts would be for nothing.' The perfect copy told Tang Li Xue with their mental connection.
Yes, all of Tang Li Xue's previous expressions were only her acting to wait until the last moment, so the other foxes would lower their guard against her!
Tang Li Xue suddenly showed her fangs as she revealed a confident sneer and used the divine ability that she rarely used until now...
[Sun Dragon Fiery Eyes]!
Tang Li Xue's right eye was glowing a majestic golden light!
The magenta fox's body inside the defense crystal dome was suddenly incinerated by golden flames!
Tang Li Xue's [Sun Dragon Fiery Eyes] could bypass the magenta fox's defense crystal dome and burn the magenta fox directly!
The magenta fox was screaming and wailing out loud in pain as its body was set on fire by Tang Li Xue's fiery golden flames.
The red pointer above the magenta fox's head moved to Tang Li Xue's head in that instant!
Just when Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy thought that they were already winning...
The yellow fox who waited patiently all this time already pounced swiftly toward Tang Li Xue as its body began to glow!
"I already guess a little scheming bast*rd like you will definitely make your move at the last moment!" The perfect copy shouted in anger as she used [Energy Manipulation] to create something in front of the real Tang Li Xue to protect her from the yellow fox's sudden attack.
Yes, the perfect copy created a mirror wall in front of Tang Li Xue!
Both Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy never used their [Energy Manipulation] until now because they wanted to catch this yellow fox off guard with this tactic!
The yellow fox was astonished, but it was already too late for it to stop its blinding light divine ability from activating!
The yellow fox's body was shining blindingly bright in that last second stunning every fox in this closed room... including itself!
When the time was up, all of the surviving foxes were kicked out of the closed room and teleported back to Treasure Island.
Tang Li Xue slowly opened her topaz blue eyes, and she found herself already in the middle of the valley.
"Where am... No! Wait a minute, where is my precious treasure?!" Tang Li Xue shouted with a bewildered tone.
But she quickly found a small wooden box in front of her.
"Woah~! Is this my reward?! I wonder what is inside it!" Tang Li Xue muttered impatiently as she quickly approached the small wooden box.
However, her perfect copy quickly stopped Tang Li Xue and reminded her: "Hold on for a minute~! What if there is a trap or dangerous item inside it?! You just stay away from that box and let me open it alone instead."
Tang Li Xue's excitement was instantly extinguished like being doused with cold water.
It was like when you bought delicious food, but your parents said that food was not good for your health, and they ate that delicious food instead.
"Is there really any need to be too careful like that? I think this box should be safe! How could they put a trap or dangerous item as a reward, right?!" Tang Li Xue asked back with a disbelief tone.
The perfect copy rolled her eyes and advised: "There is nothing wrong with being more careful. Let alone this wooden box is given by someone you do not know."
"But... But... I still have [Sun And Moon Aegis]'s protection, right?! So, it should be all right for me to open this box by myself!" Tang Li Xue tried to argue with an unwilling tone.
"You only have 2 more protection from [Sun And Moon Aegis]. I still have full 3 [Sun And Moon Aegis]'s protection!" The perfect copy replied flatly.
Finally, Tang Li Xue could only accept her perfect copy's suggestion and walked farther sadly from the small wooden box.
The perfect copy nervously stared at the small wooden box for a few moments.
She slowly reached her paw toward the small wooden box with a solemn expression while gulping her saliva.
"Can you just open the box right away quickly?! You already spend too much time!" Tang Li Xue shouted angrily as she almost wanted to run and quickly opened the box by herself.
When the perfect copy cautiously opened the small wooden box...
The Phoenix of Pride inside Tang Li Xue's Dantian suddenly flew out and flashed toward the small wooden box!
Inside the small wooden box was a crimson fruit that emitted scorching heat.
The Phoenix of Pride swiftly grabbed the crimson fruit inside the small wooden box and engulfed the fruit with its deep blue flames.
It seems this was the Phoenix of Pride's way of eating the scorching crimson fruit.
[Your Phoenix of Pride had consumed the Crimson Sun Fruit. Its flame power and all fire skills' lethality increased by 20%!]
Tang Li Xue widened her topaz blue eyes in shock as she shouted in disbelief: "Increased flame power and the lethality of fire skills by 20%?! That is quite a lot!"
The strength of Phoenix of Pride had already increased by several times after it digested the source of Purple Ghost Flame before, and now, its strength increased again by 20%!
Moreover, according to what Instructor Mei Lan had said to them before, the precious treasures that appeared in the first phase of the Foxes Hunting Festival were the least valuable ones.
Then the treasures and resources would gradually become more and more valuable as time passed until the end of the Foxes Hunting Festival, the most valuable treasures would appear.
"This [Crimson Sun Fruit] appeared on the second or third day of the Foxes Hunting Festival, so this is also the least valuable treasure?! Now I really want to see what kind of treasure is the most valuable one!" Tang Li Xue murmured as her topaz blue eyes shone with excitement.
"Don't you dare to think that far yet! Just so you know that we are really lucky this time. We did not meet with any monstrous predator like the previous rainy aqua fox or the abomination black fox!" Tang Li Xue's perfect copy quickly reminded Tang Li Xue before she became overconfident.
The light green fox, magenta fox, and yellow fox might have quite a set of powerful divine abilities, but they have not reached the level of predator yet.
At least, no one of them could fight equally against the rainy aqua fox or the abomination black fox.
On the contrary, the three of them might even get obliterated at once in less than one minute by any of those monstrous predators.
"If we really meet with monstrous predators like them in the game, we might already be eliminated before we can hold out until the end. You should know that there should be many other monstrous predators like them participating in this Foxes Hunting Festival." The perfect copy added a few more sentences to warn Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue quickly replied: "I know that we will certainly meet with monstrous predators sooner or later if we keep looking for the other precious treasures. But isn't this what we must do?"
"Isn't the real purpose of every fox participating in this Foxes Hunting Festival to get more treasures or resources to become stronger? So, how could we just hide cowardly and do nothing until the festival is over?!" Tang Li Xue said with a firm tone.
This time, the perfect copy did not deny Tang Li Xue's words.
The perfect copy stared at Tang Li Xue with a solemn expression and answered: "That is why we must make more cautious plans before we enter any treasure game!"
After discussing it for a while, they decided that the perfect copy would be the first who approached the pillar of golden light this time.
They wanted to see if the perfect copy could participate in the treasure game alone without the real Tang Li Xue.
If the perfect copy could really do it, then Tang Li Xue did not need to take a great risk to participate in the treasure game by herself anymore.
Unfortunately, their plan could only be postponed when they accidentally bumped into an amazing event taking place in this valley.
While Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy were traveling in the valley toward another nearby pillar of golden light stealthy in the [Ethereal Form], suddenly...
