Chapter 176 176: Copy! Copy! Copy!
"What did you say?! You still think you can win against us?! The team you win yesterday is only a bunch of weakly freshmen students! We are on a different level from them!" The male red-robed student stopped sneering and shouted at Tang Li Xue full of anger.
Different from the education institute in Tang Li Xue's precious world, all the students in the education department of Myriad Foxes Academy were not separated by years like the first year, the second year, the third year, and so on.
The reason for that was because the education department of Myriad Foxes Academy did not educate the scholars, but the powerful lineup capable of completing different tasks in their respective fields whether in inspection or assassination.
Besides that, all the beasts have a really long lifespan, so measuring their maturity by years like the human race was completely inaccurate, since it was not strange to find students still staying in this education department even after thirty or fifty years.
So the education department of Myriad Foxes Academy separated their rank into five according to their contribution: Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior, and Undergraduate.
How to gain more contribution? Of course, to complete more exams, trials, missions, etc. All the students could not check or see their own contribution points, but it was automatically recorded in the education department's system.
Tang Li Xue observed several red-robed students in front of her and noticed their confidence glowing from their faces.
'These people... err... these foxes should be at least at Sophomore or Junior rank! That's why they are so confident winning against me.' Tang Li Xue concluded in her mind.
Why Tang Li Xue knew about this?
Because only the Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior rank students that were still loitering around the education building.
All of the Senior and Undergraduate rank students were usually busily completing some important missions outside the Myriad Foxes Academy to gain huge rewards from the Education Department later.
'But this is good too. It would be too boring to experiment with my new divine abilities and equipment on the weak students like yesterday. I will even get 5,000 credits in doing so while trying to finish my quest! This is truly what we called 'killing three birds with one stone'!' Tang Li Xue sneered at them while thinking so.
Several red-robed students surrounded Tang Li Xue as if they were afraid that Tang Li Xue will run away.
However, Bing Yi, Hei Yinghao, Li Jing, and the others already stood beside Tang Li Xue. They were ready to confronting all of these savage red-robed students if they dare to gang up on Tang Li Xue.
Fortunately, nothing happened between Tang Li Xue's group and the Executor Class students' group in the end. They were only kept cursing and trash talk against each other harshly while heading toward the second floor together.
Executor Class students even asked for a referee for their sparring match when they booked one of the sparring room from the second-floor supervisor.
"Referee? So we can ask for a referee to oversee our match?" Tang Li Xue asked Hei Yinghao and Bing Yi.
"Not a real referee. We can ask the supervisor to activate the formation in the sparring room to summon an Instructor's replica as a referee. But it will oversee fair match like single battle 1 on 1 or team battle 3 on 3. In the case of 1 on 3 like yesterday, we cannot use a referee." Hei Yinghao patiently explained to Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue nodded in understanding and asked again: "So we don't need to hold back our strength so much in the sparring battle later, right? I mean there is already a referee that will protect their life at the last moment and stop the match."
Hei Yinghao and Bing Yi looked at Tang Li Xue dumbfoundedly after they heard her question but both of them subconsciously nodded their heads at the same time.
Tang Li Xue sneered coldly under her fox mask but no one could see it.
Since the Executor Class students already asked for a referee, Tang Li Xue could no longer face the entire team alone like yesterday.
There were nine Executor Class students with them now, so Tang Li Xue's team will need to face three Executor Class teams one by one today.
After entered their sparring room, the faceless replica appeared in the room.
Tang Li Xue kept staring at the replica referee with the eyes full of curiosity.
One of the teams from Executor Class students gave 5,000 credits to the referee, and they stared at Tang Li Xue as if they were waiting for Tang Li Xue to do something.
"Little Xue, you must give the credits you bet to referee before the battle, so the incident like yesterday will not happen." Bing Yi nudged Tang Li Xue's arm and whispered.
"Oh, so it's like that. I understand." Tang Li Xue nodded. She took out her bronze card and transferred 15,000 credits to the referee since she already promised to pay 3 times if she loses later.
The executor class students laughed at Tang Li Xue even harder when Tang Li Xue transferred 15,000 credits to the referee. Their mocking laughs were so annoying as if they already won and Tang Li Xue's 15,000 credits already entered their pocket.
Li Jing's team and executor class students' other teams that did not involve in the current battle could only stand at the corner of the room to watch.
While Tang Li Xue's team and the three red-robed students stood in the middle of the room. After some discussions, Tang Li Xue decided to let the executor class students chose the arena they wanted.
"Sparring Room Number 1476, choosing arena: Ancient Tomb." The female executor class student shouted.
The sparring room turned dark in an instant, and their surrounding scene completely changed.
All of them in the middle of a giant stone room with many giant pillars, there were also many stone staircases around them, and a large luxurious coffin at the center of the room.
Different from the open arena like Colosseum, this Ancient Tomb was in the closed room.
The dark environment here made them hard to see their surroundings. The ground here also did not flat like in Colosseum, because there were many stone staircases.
"Ready!" The replica referee hoarse sound resounded through the entire Ancient Tomb.
The three red-robed students vanished after they heard the referee's words.
'So this is why they choose this dark room arena because they can bring their best abilities in a dark environment.' Tang Li Xue thought.
"Xue? Where are you?" Hei Yinghao asked with an anxious tone.
"Little Xue!" Bing Yi also shouted while looking at Tang Li Xue.
'Eh? They can't see me? Oh... Yes, I almost forget this [Shadow Striders]'s equipment effect!' Tang Li Xue's topaz blue eyes shone brighter.
Equipment Effect: Shadow Walker (Turned invisible in the dark place).
Tang Li Xue wanted to laugh out loud when she remembered this equipment effect.
"You two don't need to worry about me. Just focus on defeating them." Tang Li Xue whispered to Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao while activated her [Twin Moons] divine ability and summoned out her perfect copy.
Both Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy turned completely invisible under the cover of the darkness.
Even if the three students from Executor Class have some ways to detect anyone in the dark but they will not be able to detect Tang Li Xue and her copy under this [Shadow Walker]'s effect!
While Tang Li Xue and her copy with their [Night Vision] skill made them capable of seeing everything in the dark.
She could even see the three Executor Class students stealthy moved at the side of the stone room tried to approaching Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao from their blind spot.
Tang Li Xue already laughed loudly in her heart. This match was clearly a free win for Tang Li Xue.
'But it will be too boring if I ambush the three of them at once from behind now and win just like that. Let's see what they can do first!' Tang Li Xue decided to sit at the nearby stone staircase leisurely while her perfect copy still in standby near Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao.
A male red-robed student made a grasping motion with his palm after his team was close enough with Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao.
"What?! I... I can't move!" Bing Yi gritted her teeth and tried to move her hand but failed to even twitch her finger.
"I also can't move!" Hei Yinghao's expression turned solemn, but he did not panic at all. Among the three of them, Hei Yinghao has the most experience in battle, so he always the calmest one when faced with any different kind of unexpected situations like this.
'Oh? What an interesting ability! Let's try to copy it!' Tang Li Xue told her perfect copy to activate her [Mirror of the Moon].
However, Tang Li Xue immediately something was not right.
'Eh... why do I feel so strange?' Tang Li Xue frowned and tried to inspect her [Mirror of the Moon] in her status window.
[Mirror of the Moon]: Demonic Tune.
Tang Li Xue instantly realized why she felt strange. It was because she did not get the system notification after her perfect copy copied the [Shadow Bind] using the [Mirror of the Moon]!
After stopped Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao's movement, the other male red-robed students rushed toward them.
The male red-robed student's figure turned black as the black smoke emitted out from his body, and he blended with the darkness.
The black smoke from his body was very corrosive as it even melted the stone ground where he stepped on.
It could be easily imagined what will happen if that black smoke emitted out from his body touched Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao.
Tang Li Xue told her perfect copy to use the divine ability it copied before.
Tang Li Xue's copy also made grasping motion like what the male red-robed student did before, and the black male student stopped moving like a statue.
The black male student: '???!!!'
"I can't move! You stupid, why the hell are you using your [Shadow Bind] to me too?!" The black male student scolded his teammate.
"What are you talking about?! I did not do anything!" The male red-robed student shouted back in anger.
"Really? Tsk! There are only two of them tied up, the last one must have the same ability as you!" The black male student warned his teammates.
'This [Shadow Bind] is not bad, but I can only use it in a dark environment like this, and I also can't move while binding the others with this divine ability.' Tang Li Xue shook her head in disappointment.
"Come out, my [Shadow Knights]!" The female red-robed student murmured softly.
Twenty-two shadows rose from the darkness, and their black figures formed into twenty-two black armored knights.
'Woah, that's a really cool divine ability there! I will take it!' Tang Li Xue's topaz blue eyes shone brighter in excitement.
[Mirror of the Moon]!
Name: Shadow Knights
Type: Divine Ability
Tang Li Xue tried to activate the [Shadow Knights] and summoned out some shadows but unfortunately, she was failed to summon out anything.
[No soul absorbed by the [Shadow Knights] divine ability yet! Soul in stock: 0]
'Wait... what? Did I fail? Um, no... It seems I need to absorb some souls to summon these Shadow Knights. Tsk... What a troublesome ability!' Tang Li Xue clicked her tongue in annoyance.
'Wait a minute, I wonder if I can also use the divine ability my perfect clone copied with her [Mirror of the Moon]?! Let's try it!' Tang Li Xue stood up and walked towards the female red-robed student and her twenty-two Shadow Knights.
Tang Li Xue made a grasping motion and the shadows of the female red-robed student along with her twenty-two Shadow Knights were flickering a bit.
"Go, my boys! Finish those two for me!" The female red-robed student ordered all of her Shadow Knights, but all of her Shadow Knights still did not move at all.
The female red-robed student frowned, and she tried to move closer to her Shadow Knights before giving an order once again, but she immediately realized that she also could not move right now.
"What are you doing?! Quickly and help us! Just knock out these two first so we can focus on the last one!" The male red-robed student that using [Shadow Bind] to immobilize Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao shouted to the female red-robed student.
"I... I also cannot move..." The female red-robed student blushed in embarrassment and answered with a soft voice.
"Stupid, then order your Shadow Knights to do it for you!" The immobilized black male student scolded in anger.
"But... But... My... all my Shadow Knights also cannot move." The female red-robed student grimaced as if she wanted to cry so badly but no tears came out.
"WHAT?! That's impossible! How can that ugly b*tch locked so many targets at once?!" The immobilized black male student widened his eyes in disbelief.
'Woah! This is wonderful! So I can use whatever divine ability my perfect clone copied too! What the hell! Doesn't it mean I can copy two divine abilities?! I can copy one and my perfect clone can copy one! But we can use both of divine abilities we copied!' Tang Li Xue squinted her topaz blue eyes in realization and amazement.
