Chapter 86 86: The Way Out!
'Yosh... I already do what I could and nothing I can do anymore now! It will always be better for one person dead rather than two, right?! Eerrr... one person plus one beast to be exact... Ok then, Xiao Hei good luck for you! ADIOS!'
When Tang Li Xue wanted to activate her [Ethereal Form] and go far away from here as soon as possible...
"Xiao Bai..." Xiao Hei called Tang Li Xue while slowly approached her.
Xiao Hei kneeled down while taking off a ring necklace from his neck.
The ring in particular was very exquisite like a piece of art carved carefully by the supreme master. It was made from unknown special metal that kept shining with a dim azure light. With one glance, Tang Li Xue instantly knew that this ring should be very valuable.
"This ring is my only clue to find my mother... but it looks like I will not have any more chance to meet her... Xiao Bai, now I will give this ring to you! If someday you meet with a woman who recognizes this ring just tell her that her son perished bravely in the battle." Xiao Hei was smiling full of gentleness and he put his ring necklace onto Tang Li Xue's neck.
When the ring necklace dr.a.p.ed on her neck, the necklace chain was adjusted by itself, and its size instantly fitted with Tang Li Xue's tiny neck now.
Xiao Hei embraced Tang Li Xue's tiny body for one last time in his arms and whispered some advice to her: "Xiao Bai, no one would take care of you from now on after I am gone so you have to take good care of yourself... make sure to always be on guard to others. If you have a chance, go as far as you can from this sect, and remember to not let anyone see you!"
Xiao Hei did not know Tang Li Xue's [Ethereal Form] clearly but he surely knew that Tang Li Xue had the ability to turn herself invisible after spent so much time together.
Xiao Hei pushed the dumbfounded Tang Li Xue to the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard.
He did not know what the relationship between Tang Li Xue and this beast lord was but he could clearly feel from the beast lord attitude that it hates him and his people so much. It only sheltered them because his Xiao Bai was the one that brought them here.
"Exalted Beast Lord, please take care of Xiao Bai..." Xiao Hei bowed his head and pleaded the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard.
Red-Eyes Winged Lizard nodded its giant head while kept staring at the human in front of him with a bit of respect this time.
The human in front of it was a respectable Patriarch of Asura Demon Sect. He was so cold and prideful before. For him to bow so deeply to a beast should be very humiliating but he still did it to make sure that little lass would stay safe here under its protection.
"Let's go out!" Xiao Hei waved his hand and said it to his group.
The five elders followed behind Xiao Hei without any hesitation and they walked toward the Fortress Gate.
"After we go out, all of you should surrender. Our sect's current strength is currently lacking compared with the other sect, so I am sure my uncle will not make it difficult for you all." Xiao Hei said with a cold voice.
"But... Young Patriarch!" The five elders wanted to protest.
"This is my last order!" Xiao Hei shouted with a stern tone to silence them all.
Without waiting for anyone to rebuke or answer his last order, Xiao Hei opened the fortress giant gate and went out without any trace of fear or hesitation in his eyes.
Tang Li Xue felt the extreme sadness flooding her heart the moment she saw Xiao Hei's lonely back when he went out of the fake dragon's fortress.
Tang Li Xue gritted her teeth full of unwillingness as her mind spun faster trying to think a way to save her Xiao Hei from this predicament.
'Xiao Hei... oh, Xiao Hei... Do you really need to give me your mother's memento and last warm hug?! Sigh... It made me really want to help you with my all!'
'Dammit! Dammit! Is there really no other way to help him?! Is there really no other way to save him now?! Wait a minute... My system! I have one more [Greater Lucky Sticker] in my system inventory! Should I really use it on Xiao Hei now? There is no more time! I should... ehhh... wait a minute... luck!'
Tang Li Xue remembered that other than three [Substitute Doll], she also got three other items.
'Hopefully, my [Greater Lucky Sticker]'s buff that time was not wasted!'
'Looking at the item's name, it should be used to pick or get sub profession's knowledge or item like the alchemist, array master, or whatever it is... useless for me now! Next!'
'At first, I did not get it what was the difference between this item and [Recovery Pill] but now I already guessed its function from its name. [Recovery Pill] could only be used by living creatures to recover from any injuries but this [Restoration Elixir] should be used to restore the broken item such as broken vase... but again this is useless in my current situation! Next!'
[Divine Ability Talisman]...
'The last one! This is my only hope or I can only use my super precious [Greater Lucky Sticker] to help Xiao Hei... too wasteful! Sigh... what is the use of this item? Err... how to use this item anyway?!'
Tang Li Xue held the [Divine Ability Talisman] tightly as she started to examine it more closely.
[You can store any divine ability in this talisman and use it anytime without consuming any stamina or vitality energy. The first time this talisman activated, it would store any divine ability it touched. The second time this talisman activated, it would release the divine ability stored inside. Do you want to activate it now? (One-time use only)]
'Eh?! It can store and release any divine ability?! What a good stuff! But... sigh... what a pity this item is useless for now! Should I activate my [Ethereal Form] now then stick my [Greater Lucky Sticker] to Xiao Hei?'
Tang Li Xue sighed in disappointment as she stored all of her items back into her system inventory then took out her one and only [Greater Lucky Sticker] out.
Actually, she was still very hesitant to use this [Greater Lucky Sticker] even if it for her concubine. She got a hunch that if she used it when she evolves, she would definitely get many benefits such as a powerful divine ability, strongest species, overpowered stats enhancement, and many more.
'Eh... wait... wait a minute... it can store and release any kind of divine ability, right? What if I store my [Ethereal Form] divine ability and use it to... '
Tang Li Xue's gaze wandered to the fake dragon that still bounded near her.
'WOOOOHOOOOO!!! I got this! YES! ACTIVATE IT NOW!'
When [Divine Ability Talisman] activated, it started to shine with a dim purple light but only Tang Li Xue can see it, even the fake dragon near her did not notice anything strange happened at all.
[Ethereal Form] active!
[Divine ability: Ethereal Form stored! Reminder: continuous-type divine ability can only be activated for 10 minutes!]
After [Divine Ability Talisman] successfully stored Tang Li Xue's [Ethereal Form], the dim purple light stopped shining and [Divine Ability Talisman] returned back like before.
Tang Li Xue examined her [Divine Ability Talisman] for a moment while thinking about how she could explain her plan to the fake dragon.
[Divine Ability Talisman (Ethereal Form)]
'Woah... great! My time is so tight! I don't have any more time to explain it to the fake dragon! Hopefully, this fake dragon is wise enough to understand what it should do!'
Tang Li Xue waved both of her paws to attract the fake dragon's attention.
"Little lass, what do you want to do now? But remember, no matter what you want to do, you definitely cannot go out now!" The fake dragon put its angry expression and said with a stern tone.
Tang Li Xue activated her [Ethereal Form] and her tiny figure immediately disappeared like the thin air right in front of the fake dragon's eyes.
The fake dragon already knew that Tang Li Xue had a stealth ability capable to turn herself invisible since the first time they met but it still did not understand what Tang Li Xue planned to do now.
Tang Li Xue walked to the Fortress gate and deactivated her [Ethereal Form]. The fake dragon could spot her shortly after, she waved her paws toward it as if inviting it to go outside then push the Fortress gate open.
"What are you... STOP! YOU! DO YOU REALLY WANT TO DIE?!" The fake dragon roared angrily.
After doing all of that, Tang Li Xue activated her [Ethereal Form] back. She made it as if she went outside to chase after Xiao Hei but actually, she went back inside.
Tang Li Xue silently approached the fake dragon, and threw [Divine Ability Talisman (Ethereal Form)] toward it!
Tang Li Xue said in her mind the moment her [Divine Ability Talisman (Ethereal Form)] stuck on the fake dragon's body!
