Chapter 574: The Fifth Treasure Game!
Chapter 574: The Fifth Treasure Game!
"Your instructor or teacher should have already explained to you about the second phase of this Foxes Hunting Festival, right?" Lei Qian'er inquired to Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue asked back with a puzzled tone: "Uhh, which one? About the apex predator foxes collecting 50% to 70% of the precious treasures from the other predator foxes?"
Lei Qian'er nodded and replied: "Yes, that is it. That vassal mark means you have already become Meng Yue's vassal."
Tang Li Xue grimaced in annoyance while exclaiming: "I have become her vassal?! So, does that mean I must offer 50% to 70% of the precious treasures I get to her from now on?!"
Lei Qian'er rolled her beautiful purple eyes and began to worry about Tang Li Xue's IQ while explaining patiently: "Why do you must offer your precious treasures to her? Did she ever ask for you to do that? Never, right? It means you are already under her protection without any condition."
"Ah, I see~! I get it now~! Hehehe..." Tang Li Xue uttered while blushing in embarrassment.
Tang Li Xue always thought that the apex predator foxes were extorting precious treasures from the other foxes using coercion, but it seemed that was only her misunderstanding.
The predator foxes offered precious treasures to apex predator foxes, but they would also get their protection, so it was a win-win situation.
Tang Li Xue has Meng Yue's vassal mark...
It means she was already under the protection of the Heaven's Favored Child of the Fox Clan!
Which apex predator foxes would dare to mess with her from now on?!
After that, Tang Li Xue started to ask more about Meng Yue's [Regalia of Reality] to Lei Qian'er in order to increase her knowledge about regalia.
Tang Li Xue found out that her [Regalia of Reality] was far from being as perfect as she had imagined before.
First, the quality of Meng Yue's creation was actually limited by her own overall strength.
Why did she only create Flood Dragon instead of the true Azure Dragon before?
Because her overall strength was still far away from mythical-level beasts such as Azure Dragon or Phoenix, so she could not create them.
Second, the quantity of Meng Yue's creation actually depended on her own total amount of energy.
Why did she not create the armies of Flood Dragon or millions of legendary golden swords before?
It was because she would need to spend some of her energy every time she created or did something like resurrecting herself or turning back time.
Previously, Lei Qian'er already knew that she could not even shake Meng Yue's [Regalia of Reality] domain, so she planned to force Meng Yue to spend all of her energy in their fierce battle.
Unfortunately, she still failed in the end since Meng Yue defeated her first before she could force Meng Yue to exhaust all of her energy.
In short, Meng Yue's ability was still severely limited by her overall strength and total amount of energy for now, but there was no doubt that her [Regalia of Reality] domain had already reached perfection.
Once Meng Yue evolved into the True Spirit Beast in the future, she would certainly become the strongest True Spirit Beast, and only the legendary Beast God might be able to suppress her!
Tang Li Xue shuddered in horror while she was thinking about it and muttered: "So, this is the true worth of Heaven's Favored Child..."
After discussing about Meng Yue's ability with Lei Qian'er, Tang Li Xue asked about another topic that still made her curious until now: "Oh, right... You said Meng Yue was the first-place winner in the previous Foxes Hunting Festival. Who is in the second and third place? Where do they come from?"
Lei Qian'er raised her head smugly and exclaimed while pointing at herself: "The second place is of course... The beautiful goddess of lightning, Lei Qian'er ~!"
"Eh? What~?! You are the one who got the second place?!" Tang Li Xue uttered in disbelief.
"Sister Xue is so meanie~! Why do you look so surprised like that?! Do I really not deserve to get the second place?!" Lei Qian'er said as she put on an act as if she wanted to cry.
Tang Li Xue laughed when she saw Lei Qian'er's playful act and quickly comforted: "I did not really mean like that. It is just I thought Qing Qiu Fox Tribe would have another powerful apex predator foxes other than Meng Yue."
Lei Qian'er puckered her pink lips and sulked, then she started to talk to Tang Li Xue about it clearly.
The Tu Shan Fox Tribe surely has several larger population than the Qing Qiu Fox Tribe, but the foxes from the Qing Qiu Fox Tribe actually have higher strength compared to the foxes from the Tu Shan Fox Tribe.
In short, the Tu Shan Fox Tribe took quantity over quality, they believed the greater the number of strong foxes in the Fox Clan, the stronger the Fox Clan would become.
While the Qing Qiu Fox Tribe took the Elite route, quality over quantity. They believed that what they needed was the most powerful chosen ones to lead the entire Fox Clan to prosperity.
After countless hardships and efforts, the Qing Qiu Fox Tribe finally produced what they had been hoping for all this time, the true Heaven's Favored Child, Meng Yue.
The previous Foxes Hunting Festival was Meng Yue's debut.
She basically pushed everything horizontally and vertically alone.
It also made the Qing Qiu Fox Tribe get 1st, 3rd, and 4th place quite easily in the previous Foxes Hunting Festival.
While Lei Qian'er as the strongest genius fox from Tu Shan Fox Tribe only managed to get 2nd place, and her other comrade barely squeezed into 5th place at that time.
Honestly, Lei Qian'er felt she was really lucky since she only met with Meng Yue at the end, if not, she would certainly not be able to get that 2nd place, and Qing Qiu Fox Tribe might take all 1st until 5th place.
Since the Qing Qiu Fox Tribe won more ranking places than the Tu Shan Fox Tribe in the previous Foxes Hunting Festival, their Fox Clan's precious resources tilted much more toward the Qing Qiu Fox Tribe in the following years.
Tang Li Xue was extremely surprised when Lei Qian'er mentioned it.
"Damn~! So, this Foxes Hunting Festival is actually a competition game between the higher-ups to determine that?!" Tang Li Xue exclaimed in her shock.
Lei Qian'er nodded and added: "Not only that but they can also use this chance to inspect our growth and find genius foxes from other places or continents. They can clearly 'kill many birds in one stone' with this Foxes Hunting Festival."
Even though Tang Li Xue still wanted to discuss many more things to increase her knowledge, Lei Qian'er had already felt tired because she just recovered from the violent backlash effect.
Tang Li Xue offered Lei Qian'er to just sleep here while she would guard her, but Lei Qian'er kindly refused.
Then Tang Li Xue quickly realized how ridiculous her offer was and blushed.
How could a mere weak fox like her offer to guard the strongest apex predator fox from Tu Shan Fox Tribe?! Was she daydreaming or what?!
Thankfully, Lei Qian'er tactfully did not mention it like that and only said that she already had an appointment with her comrade from Tu Shan Fox Tribe, so Tang Li Xue would not need to worry about her safety.
Lei Qian'er bid her farewell to Tang Li Xue, then she transformed into three-colored lightning and flashed into the skies.
Tang Li Xue sighed in slight disappointment, but her previous discussion with Lei Qian'er and Meng Yue had given her a lot of inspiration for her future development path.
Tang Li Xue decided to use [Spider Scorpion Transformation] to dig a deep underground tunnel and went to sleep to recover her energy while waiting for her [Sun and Moon Aegis]'s deadly blow protection to finish its cooldown.
After waking up, Tang Li Xue felt refreshed as her stamina and energy were completely recovered.
After watching Meng Yue's undefeatable strength, Tang Li Xue felt that she was too weak right now and wanted to get stronger as soon as possible, so she immediately decided to participate in another treasure game.
dαsvel.cοm Tang Li Xue went out of the deep underground tunnel, then she activated her [Ethereal Form] and [Art of Concealment] in order to travel around more safely.
Even though she already has the protection of Meng Yue's vassal mark, but it would only work for the top apex predator foxes from the Qing Qiu Fox Tribe and maybe Tu Shan Fox Tribe too.
However, the predator foxes from other places or continents probably did not know about it and would still attack her.
The skies above were still dyed with crimson red color.
In spite of that crimson skies domain could no longer affect Tang Li Xue anymore, but they still gave her an eerie and gloomy feeling as if she was being watched by someone.
Tang Li Xue increased her speed even more by using [Moonlight Flickering Flash Step], and it did not take long for her to reach the nearest pillar of golden light.
When she almost arrived at the pillar of golden light's location, Tang Li Xue immediately slowed down her speed and increased her vigilance to the maximum.
'Usually, some annoying predator-level foxes would guard near the pillar of golden light to kill the other competitors... I have already been ambushed twice right in front of the pillar of golden light before!' Tang Li Xue thought disdainfully.
Moreover, the current pillar of golden light was located near the desert area.
Tang Li Xue always felt that something might jump out from inside the sand at any time, so she did not dare to lower her guard at all.
Thankfully, it was only Tang Li Xue's delusion, and she successfully entered the pillar of golden light without any accident.
But after Tang Li Xue's silver furry figure had vanished into the pillar of golden light, the surrounding sand trembled slightly and went back to normal after a few moments.
