Chapter 241 241: Make Trouble at the Front Gate!
When Tang Li Xue's flying disc approached Quanhai City, she decided to land a few miles away from the major road leading to Quanhai City's gate because she did not want to draw any attention.
Yaya has already fallen asleep on the top of Tang Li Xue's head while Tang Li Xue's perfect copy kept looking after their surrounding from any incoming threat in her [Ethereal Form]… Okay, actually, it was the real Tang Li Xue's turn to communicate with the two conceited disciples now.
Tang Li Xue took out two [Talisman of Regeneration +2] from her space pouch and threw each of it toward the two disciples.
Actually, all of the demonic beast's bodies already have incredible regeneration thanks to their abundant vitality energy in their beast cores.
Even these two disciples' wound was almost completely recovered after a few hours.
But Tang Li Xue did not want them to realize that there was a wound behind their head, who knows if they would get suspicious to Tang Li Xue later and complained to the mission hall because of it.
With the help of [Talisman of Regeneration +2] healing effect, the wound on the two disciples' heads slowly healed and completely vanished without any trace in less than a minute.
A few nights before taking this Silver-Rank Trial, Tang Li Xue's perfect copy had already made many kinds of talismans as preparation for emergency situations.
She also made tons of these [Talisman of Regeneration +2], many of them were even [Talisman of Regeneration +3], while only several of them were [Talisman of Regeneration +4].
It did not take long for the two disciples to regain their consciousness after their wound completely recovered.
"What... What happen... where are we now?" The female disciple rubbed her forehead to ease her headache while tried to stand up, but she immediately staggered and almost fell onto the ground again.
Tang Li Xue swiftly caught the female disciple's arm so she would not fell and asked: "Are you alright? You do not need to push yourself. Just take a rest for a while."
"What happens? Why are we here? The last time I remember, we are still in the deep forest." The male disciple asked while his face grimaced in pain, and he started to massage his forehead too.
"We… err… got poisoned by an unknown beast in that forest… and you two have passed out… umm… Fortunately, I have… uhh… the poison's antidote, so I carried you two here and feed you two the antidote. In short, everything is okay right now, and we are only a few miles away from Quanhai City. Let's go!" Tang Li Xue hastily walked toward the major road to Quanhai City.
Both disciples looked at each other in confusion and felt unconvinced with Tang Li Xue's explanation, but they did not have any other choice other than believe her since both of them did not know what really happened before.
Both disciples quickly stood up and followed Tang Li Xue from behind.
The three of them quickly adjusted their black cloak so it would completely cover their fox ears and tail before blending with the crowds of humans and heading toward Quanhai City with them.
There was nearly a hundred-foot tall solid stone wall surrounded the Quanhai City, protecting the city from any external harm such as demonic beast or bandits.
Countless armored guards took turns patrolling above the stone wall.
Even Yaya woke up the moment they reached Quanhai City and observed her surrounding in excitement and curiosity.
Several armored guards in front of Quanhai City's giant gate were carefully inspecting the identity doc.u.ments and the goods of all the people who wanted to enter the city. It probably took the guards ten minutes of inspecting one group of merchants before allowed them to enter the city.
Tang Li Xue's group was already queuing up, but they were still so far away from the Quanhai City's gate.
They would probably need to wait for several days before they could enter the Quanhai City at this rate.
"This is too long! Oi, you are quite strong, aren't you? Can you just bring us to enter by force?" The male disciple complained and said to Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue's mouth twitched violently and screamed in her heart: 'Are you an idiot? You want to make trouble in front of their door, but you want to shop peacefully inside their territory?! Dream on! Kid, this world is not as nice as you think! Do you really think this city is your Association's building or your mommy's home?!'
Tang Li Xue swallowed her dissatisfaction and tried to warn them softly: "Please, don't act rashly… We still do not know how many strong cultivators currently living inside this city! Let me think for a moment about how to enter this city as soon as possible…"
"Oh, yes... before that… can I ask you something?" Tang Li Xue smiled at the two disciples and asked.
The two disciples did not bother to reply and only nodded their heads lazily.
"Is this your first time out of Myriad Foxes Academy?" Tang Li Xue asked with a polite tone.
The two disciples nodded their heads lazily again.
"Oh… so this is also your first time buying something?" Tang Li Xue asked again while smiled gently.
"Tsk… Argh… why are you keep asking so many questions?! Yes, this is our first time! Are you satisfied?! Now, use your brain to think about how we can enter the city soon or I will break in forcefully from the front! I don't believe that there is a strong human cultivator in this kind of backwater city!" The female disciple cried at Tang Li Xue to vent her annoyance and anger.
Tang Li Xue nodded with a blank smile on her face and thought: 'Finished… I am really finished this time! These two pampered good-for-nothing disciples definitely have parents with important positions at Pharmacy and Alchemist Association. If not, how could they suddenly receive this kind of important assignment outside the Myriad Foxes Academy without any experience?! I even started to doubt it if they could even buy the proper herbs inside Quanhai City later!'
At this moment, Tang Li Xue finally realized why this quest got 'Hard' rate difficulty from her system.
'No! I really cannot put the fate of my mission and quest in their questionable ability!' Tang Li Xue thought as she gritted her teeth.
With her skills such as [Concentration],[Focus], [Strengthen Willpower], [Sharpen Mind], [Calculation], [Prediction], [Intelligence Enhancement], Tang Li Xue started to devise several proper backup plans in her mind.
Not long after that, her invisible perfect copy stepped forward and nodded toward Tang Li Xue.
"Let's go! I will bring you two to enter the city now!" Tang Li Xue whispered to the two disciples.
The eyes of the bored two disciples immediately lit up when they heard Tang Li Xue's words, and they hastily followed Tang Li Xue from behind.
"I hope that you two can follow my instruction from now on, and please try to not talk to anyone later." Tang Li Xue warned them, but she also tried to soften her tone, so these two disciples did not feel offended by her words.
But these two disciples did not reply and only frowned deeply: 'Even all the other disciples and elders in Pharmacy and Alchemist Association always flattered us, why we must listen to an unknown fox like you here?!'
The three of them approached the gate while several guards inspecting several carriages of the group of the merchant.
After the armored guards finished checking their identity doc.u.ments and goods in their carriages, the armored guards finally let them entered the gate.
"Wait a minute! I am sorry… but you accidentally dropped this behind." Tang Li Xue jogged toward the group of merchants while holding a small sack in her hands.
When all the people's attention including all the guards focused on the sack in Tang Li Xue's grasp, suddenly…
An ear-deafening explosion has occurred behind them!
The entire street was thrown into chaos and panic!
All the people there started to screaming and running around like crowds of headless chickens!
The expression of all the guards turned solemn, and they hastily unsheathed their weapons before rushing toward where the explosion happened.
A silhouette of the silver-white fox dashing on the ground was currently fighting fiercely against the golden-winged dragon flying in the sky!
Of course, the silver-white fox was actually Tang Li Xue's perfect copy, while the golden-winged dragon was actually Tang Li Xue's martial soul, the [Winged Golden Serpent].
Tang Li Xue planned to use them as a distraction and take the advantage of this chaos to slip into Quanhai City.
"Let's go! Follow me closely!" Tang Li Xue turned around and said with a stern tone.
But those two disciples were no longer following behind Tang Li Xue anymore and ran toward the direction of the explosion too!
'Oh, no! What the hell are these two crazy disciples trying to do?!' Tang Li Xue complained in her heart. She really wanted to cry and give up this mission so badly right now.
Tang Li Xue's speed with her [Moonlight Flickering Flash Step] was many times faster than them, so she easily caught up to them.
"Wait! Stop! What are two want to do?! We should enter the city right now!" Tang Li Xue whispered to them.
"Of course, we are going to help that poor little fox! Look at that fox! How can you not feel sorry when that poor fox get bullied by those guards and giant gold snake?!" The male disciple shouted at Tang Li Xue angrily.
Tang Li Xue almost passed out in anger when she heard the male disciple's words. She already used her perfect copy and martial soul to staged this amazing distraction scene, but these two made all of her effort in vain.
