Tang Li Xue jumped around using her [High Jump] skill, trying to take her space pouch back from the fake dragon while the fake dragon was only toying around with her. It took the space pouch closer to Tang Li Xue but immediately pulled it back before she can touch it.
The Red-Eyed Winged Lizard has always been together with Tang Li Xue for almost a month so it could already understand most of Tang Li Xue's nature.
According to Tang Li Xue's nature in Red-Eyed Winged Lizard's mind, she should become so happy the moment she got the crimson shard from Bi Fang and she would urge the Bi Fang or Red-Eyed Winged Lizard to hurry and teach her how to use the crimson shard.
Forget about storing the crimson shard to her space pouch, she would hold it and stare at it all day, unwilling to part with it for even one second like a child that got a new toy and it would last for a few days.
Tang Li Xue did not ask anything about how to use the crimson shard and immediately stored it in a space pouch. She even calmly waited for Bi Fang and Red-Eyed Winged Lizard to finish their talk without doing anything.
The usual Tang Li Xue? Forget about waiting for a few hours, she would rather hunt a few preys nearby or play around with Yaya than stood there and waiting for the Red-Eyed Winged Lizard to finish its business.
From all of these, the Red-Eyed Winged Lizard could conclude that Tang Li Xue had something she tried to hide from it and Bi Fang which was why she remained silent all this time and waited for them patiently like a good kid.
After a few hours of struggle, Tang Li Xue finally gave up and decided to tell the Red-Eyed Winged Lizard about it honestly using her gesture like usual.
"Hmmm? You can restore that crimson shard back into its usual form?" the Red-Eyed Winged Lizard asked Tang Li Xue doubtfully.
Tang Li Xue puffed up her furry chest and smugly nodded her head to answer the Red-Eyed Winged Lizard question.
"Pffft... Bwahahaha... How could it be? It is impossible! You don't even have the other fragments! How can you restore it to its original form?!" The Red-Eyed Winged Lizard laughed out loud and mocked Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue rolled her eyes at the fake dragon's mocking while thinking: 'Humph... We will see who would laugh at whom later! I will definitely make you gawked stupidly when I manage to restore this divine treasure's true form!'
Although the Red-Eyed Winged Lizard did not believe Tang Li Xue's words at all but it still fulfilled her wish and bring her to the desolate place without any people or beasts.
After flew for several hours until the skies turned completely dark, the Red-Eyed Winged Lizard and Tang Li Xue arrived at the place that fit her requirement.
It was a deep cave under the active volcano.
There were no people or beasts near this place since the active volcano could erupt any time but the Red-Eyed Winged Lizard not afraid of the lava at all and with its protection, Tang Li Xue also safe here.
"Little lass, I don't know how you restore that crimson shard back into the divine treasure but it would certainly create a large commotion while you are doing it so I will seal this entire cave with my Nirvana Flame's Barrier. If you really succeed later, my barrier certainly cannot suppress the natural phenomenon created by it so WE MUST GET OUT FROM HERE AS FAST AS WE CAN!" The Red-Eyed Winged Lizard gave a very stern warning to Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue nodded nonchalantly since her head right now full of happiness. In fact, she was so happy that she could only barely contain her laugh when she stared at the crimson shard she held in her paws.
"Sigh... but really you are such a fool to hide something like this from me. Do you really think I will forcefully take that thing from you once you finished restoring its original form?! You are really hurting my feeling... And you are so naive! Do you truly think you can hide that thing by yourself once you restore it back?! Without my help, you certainly would not be able to hide it!" The Red-Eyed Winged Lizard angrily reprimanded Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue snapped out from her happiness mood and lowered her head a bit to apologize to the Red-Eyed Winged Lizard.
'Sigh... greediness is really blinded my eyes and clouded my judgment before. I wonder why I got so suspicious toward this fake dragon... It was as if something deep inside me warned me to not trust this fake dragon completely... maybe this fake dragon did something bad to me before... meh, but I really can't remember any of it...'
Tang Li Xue shook her head and decided to focus on what she needs to do for now. She waved her paw to the Red-Eyed Winged Lizard and entered the deep cave under the volcano alone.
The Red-Eyed Winged Lizard spurted out a large amount of its golden Nirvana Flames out.
The golden flames swiftly covered the deep cave entrance along with its wall and ceiling then slowly turned into a thin golden film that covered everything.
"Little lass! Remember, you must do it fast! I can't hold it for long! After you restore that thing, store it immediately, and go back out! We will leave as fast and far as we can from here!" The Red-Eyed Winged Lizard shouted its last warning to Tang Li Xue from the cave entrance.
Tang Li Xue stopped her step when she felt that she entered deep enough and put the crimson shard onto the ground.
'Uh... wait a minute... I almost forgot about Yaya! Haha... I will summon her out first. At least, she can help to watch my back when I restore this crimson shard later.'
Tang Li Xue opened Yaya's status window from her system and pushed > button in it.
Yaya's tiny palm-sized figure instantly appeared out of thin air near where Tang Li Xue stood.
"Yayaya~~ Ya!" Yaya immediately pounced to Tang Li Xue and happily hugged Tang Li Xue's neck like usual.
'Hahaha... good girl! But this is not the right time for us to play around. Listen...'
Tang Li Xue patted Yaya's tiny head and patiently explained what happened before then what they will need to do right now.
Yaya nodded her tiny head with solemn and determined expression while waving her tiny fists around as if saying that: 'Tang Li Xue could leave everything to her and she surely would protect Tang Li Xue with everything she got!'
Yaya looked so cute and Tang Li Xue really wanted to pitch her puffed cheeks but she suppressed it and took out her [Restoration Elixir] from her system inventory.
'Hopefully, it will really work! Fuuuuuh... Here goes nothing!'
Tang Li Xue opened the cork from the [Restoration Elixir]'s vial then began to slowly pour out the transparent liquid to the crimson shard drop by drop very carefully.
Tang Li Xue did not dare to take off her eyes from the crimson shard even for a half-second. She did not even dare to blink and kept observing the crimson shard's transformation meticulously.
The thumb-sized crimson shard started to deform when it touched the liquid from the [Restoration Elixir].
At first, the thumb-sized crimson shard melted and become like a clump of mud then the red mud started to boil.
The boiling red mud started to form bubbles.
Tang Li Xue gawked in shock when she saw the crimson shard's transformation. She started to panic and all kinds of bad thoughts appeared in her mind.
'What if I am wrong and this is not the correct way to use this [Restoration Elixir]? What if this crimson shard's true form is not a divine treasure but this pile of useless red mud? Arrrggghh... Dammit! Should I continue to do this or stop it? If I stop it now... At least, I will still have a half bottle of [Restoration Elixir] left...'
Tang Li Xue wavered for a few moments but she immediately gritted her teeth and took a firm decision.
'CONTINUE! Quitting halfway is not my way of doing things! And I am sure that I can get the other [Restoration Elixir] again next time from the system... hopefully...'
Tang Li Xue poured all of [Restoration Elixir]'s transparent liquid onto the red mud made from the crimson shard in one go. Now she could only pray that everything would go smoothly according to her wish.
The boiling red mud started to change again!
This time all of the red mud completely evaporated and turned into red gas.
It got farther and farther away from Tang Li Xue's ideal image of the divine treasure in her mind. This time Tang Li Xue was really sure that she had completely utterly failed.
Tang Li Xue could only lower her head and sighed in disappointment but before she decided to leave the cave...
BADUM... BADUM... BADUM... BADUM... BADUM...
Tang Li Xue could felt that the Flame of Pride inside her dantian had gone crazy and it could not wait to pounce out right away.
'This... what happened?!'
The red gas started to condense into something solid but Tang Li Xue could not see it clearly for now.
The cave temperature also started to rise sharply and made Yaya uncomfortable.
'That is... there is something inside that red gas! I... I did it! I really did it! Woah... I wonder what kind of divine treasure will be born!'
Tang Li Xue excitedly watched the red gas transform into something in front of her eyes.
The item inside the red gas started to emit an intense crimson and gold light along with intense heat!
'IT'S DONE! That is a... Eh... Eeeehhhh... What the hell is that... a marble?'
