Chapter 542: Treacherous Treasure Game?!
Chapter 542: Treacherous Treasure Game?!
Tang Li Xue slowly opened her topaz blue eyes and instantly saw a silver fox right in front of her eyes.
She swiftly jumped back in surprise while condensing a pair of [Sun Dragon Claws] to defend herself from any attack.
But the silver fox in front of her also did the same action as her, she also jumped back quickly and condensed a pair of [Sun Dragon Claws].
"Eh?! This is... apparently only a mirror... Damn it~! Scare me to death~!" Tang Li Xue spoke with an annoyed tone.
Tang Li Xue looked around and found that she was already inside the dungeon... again!
But this third treasure game was not in the water dungeon but in the mirror dungeon!
The surrounding walls, ceiling, and even the ground below her feet reflected Tang Li Xue's silver furry figure, and it really made Tang Li Xue dizzy just by looking at them.
After getting used to it for a while, Tang Li Xue decided to release Yaya and Little Loki from her system's space.
At first, Yaya and Little Loki were also very surprised and ready to launch a quick attack on the mirror wall in front of them.
"Calm down, you two~! Those are only mirror reflections." Tang Li Xue quickly stopped them before they could attack the mirror wall.
On the top of the mirror wall's reflection, Tang Li Xue found the usual countdown timer written in red digits.
"Err, 2140 seconds... So, the game will begin around 35 more minutes. Sigh... I thought the stinky water dungeon is already the worst one. Who knows that this time there will be a much more complicated and confusing mirror dungeon?! Aissshh~!" Tang Li Xue complained while sighing in resignation.
Yaya and Little Loki patted Tang Li Xue's back to comfort her.
dαsvεl m Tang Li Xue felt amused at Yaya and Little Loki, then thought: 'It is really nice to have Yaya and Little Loki. Unlike my own perfect copy who always complains and blames me for everything! Humph~!"
Well... Actually, the perfect copy's behavior from [Twin Mirrors] divine ability was undoubtedly 100% identical to the real one...
Time passed quickly as Tang Li Xue was playing around with Little Loki and Yaya, and the countdown timer finally reached zero.
Then the countdown timer changed into a string of words!
[Find Doppelganger and kill it.]
[The fox who killed the Doppelganger will be the winner and get the precious treasure.]
[Only the one with enough strength and wits can win this game, so good luck, fox cubs!]
"Eh, what?! Do... Doppel... ganger? What the hell does it mean?!" Tang Li Xue murmured while frowning in confusion.
RUMBLE~! RUMBLE~! RUMBLE~!
While Tang Li Xue was pondering carefully the rules of this treasure game, the mirror wall in front of her opened by itself revealing a new path.
"Doppelganger... So, I must kill my own clone or something like that? Sigh... This treasure game's rule is not clear enough~! Moreover, finding my own Doppelganger in this complicated mirror maze?! Are you kidding me?! That would be extremely troublesome~!" Tang Li Xue groaned in aggravation.
"Yaya, Little Loki, be sure to always stay close to me! It is really easy to get separated and get lost in this mirror maze!" Tang Li Xue sternly warned Yaya and Little Loki who already sat on her back.
Yaya nodded obediently, but she did not lower their guard at all, and her expression also became solemn.
As for Little Loki, it still looked lazy and relaxed as usual, but it was always ready to launch any attack at any time.
Tang Li Xue activated her [Ethereal Form] and [Art of Concealment], but strangely, the mirror walls around her still reflected her usual silver furry figure.
Tang Li Xue did not pay any attention to it and stepped forward vigilantly.
Just like the water dungeon, there were many intersections and paths in this mirror dungeon.
But they were much narrower and more confusing compared to the water dungeon.
Even with her [Mapping Sense], Tang Li Xue was still facing a lot of difficulty in surveying this mirror maze because she did not have help from her perfect copy this time!
Everywhere looked the same and in every direction she saw her own reflections that made Tang Li Xue almost go crazy in confusion and discomfort.
After walking around for ten minutes or so, Tang Li Xue finally saw another fox!
It was a maroon-colored fox, but it looked in the other direction instead of Tang Li Xue's direction.
Yaya quickly launched an attack toward the maroon-colored fox in reflex!
[Compressed Wind Blades]!
Several sharp wind blades flew swiftly toward the maroon-colored fox!
But they struck something solid instead!
It seemed Yaya's sharp wind blades only managed to hit the maroon-colored fox's reflection in the mirror wall.
However, Yaya immediately lost control of her several sharp wind blades and it flew back toward her instead right now!
"Watch out~!" Tang Li Xue warned while she condensed a pair of [Sun Dragon Claws] with her deep blue Flames of Pride!
Tang Li Xue's [Sun Dragon Claws] easily blocked several sharp wind blades and shattered them in one move.
"Damn it~! So, these mirror walls can also reflect back any attack if we accidentally strike them?! You must be kidding, right?!" Tang Li Xue said with a shocked tone.
Tang Li Xue realized how difficult the current treasure game was!
There were so many mirror reflections here, but they could not attack randomly at all!
Meanwhile, how to find the Doppelganger in the midst of so many mirror reflections was the biggest problem they must face right now!
Different from Yaya, the maroon-colored fox frowned deeply, but it did not hastily launch any attack on Tang Li Xue's group.
After thinking for a few moments, the maroon-colored fox sneered evilly at Tang Li Xue as its maroon-colored eyes shone brightly.
Tang Li Xue raised her vigilance to the maximum, but she never thought that Yaya would do something out of expectation behind her instead?!
[Compressed Wind Blades]!
Yaya suddenly used [Compressed Wind Blades] toward Tang Li Xue from behind!
Luckily, Little Loki acted fast and used its [Scythe Claw Qi] to intercept Yaya's [Compressed Wind Blades] before it could hit Tang Li Xue's back!
Both Yaya and Little Loki were thrown off a few meters from Tang Li Xue!
'Wha... What did you two do? Why do you two fight with each other at a time like this?!" Tang Li Xue angrily scolded them.
"Meow nyaw mew~!" (She got controlled by that fox~!)
"What?!" Tang Li Xue exclaimed in surprise, then she quickly noticed that there was a maroon light in Yaya's emerald green eyes.
But before Tang Li Xue could do anything, Yaya launched another attack on her and Little Loki!
A huge hurricane condensed from countless wind blades instantly appeared and moved swiftly toward Tang Li Xue and Little Loki!
Normally, Little Loki could easily solve this [Cyclone Storm] using its [Heaven's Devour], but it clearly could not use its [Heaven's Devour] here in this Foxes Hunting Festival!
Little Loki's tiny figure was the first sucked into the huge hurricane!
Little Loki hastily used [Instant Teleportation] to teleport further away from there and keep its distance from Yaya's [Cyclone Storm]!
Tang Li Xue awakened the Phoenix of Pride sleeping in her Dantian and hastily entered [Perfect Assimilation] with it!
A powerful attack like [Cyclone Storm] could only be resolved with another powerful attack!
So, Tang Li Xue did not hesitate to condense the deep blue [Fire Bomb] and threw it toward the huge hurricane!
When Tang Li Xue's deep blue [Fire Bomb] exploded, the huge hurricane also dispersed!
"Yaya, wake up~! We are your friends, not your enemies~!" Tang Li Xue shouted as she tried to wake Yaya from the maroon-colored fox's mind control type divine ability.
But Yaya had vanished from there, and Tang Li Xue could not find Yaya anymore!
"Yaya? Where are you?! Eh, Little Loki?" Tang Li Xue shouted as she tried to call Yaya back, but she realized that Little Loki was also missing from her side right now!
Tang Li Xue tried to contact them through their mental connection, but it was not working at all.
Then Tang Li Xue tried to summon them back into her system's pet space, but it was also a failure too!
It was the first time that Tang Li Xue's system failed to do something!
Tang Li Xue became extremely panicked since she could not sense, communicate, or summon the two of them back right now!
Meanwhile, Little Loki looked around and failed to find Tang Li Xue or Yaya, but it did not panic at all.
Little Loki quickly realized that something was not right and concluded: "So, there are separate spaces inside the mirror wall?! This is extremely tricky and troublesome."
Little Loki decided to wander around alone to find the Doppelganger.
Only by killing the Doppelganger quickly that they could get out of this confusing place as soon as possible!
Yaya shook her tiny head to clear her dizziness.
When Yaya opened her emerald green eyes, she saw Tang Li Xue already staring at her with an expression full of worry and asked: "Are you all right, Yaya? Do you want to rest first?"
Yaya shook her head again and signaled that she was all right, then she flew toward Tang Li Xue and sat on her back again as usual.
"Okay, we must find Little Loki first. It accidentally got separated from us just now." Tang Li Xue told Yaya.
When Tang Li Xue continued on her way, there was an imperceptibly cunning smile on her face, but Yaya failed to notice it.
