Reincarnated As a Fox With System

Chapter 245 Even Bigger Trouble!

Chapter 245 Even Bigger Trouble!

Tang Li Xue secretly activated her [Twin Moons] divine ability when the two disciples were still busily debating and shouting at Tang Li Xue and each other.
Tang Li Xue did not even want to know what they were talking about right now.
Her perfect copy activated the [Ethereal Form] the moment she summoned out. Her slender figure instantly turned invisible, and even the two disciples failed to notice her presence.
Tang Li Xue immediately told her perfect copy to observe the current situation on the crowded street in Quanhai City right now.
Her perfect copy could not separate too far away from Tang Li Xue, or she would be automatically unsummoned, but with her current Spirit Stat, one or two kilometers away should not be a problem.
Tang Li Xue raised her palm to stop them from talking and said: "All right! That is enough! Silence! Shut up! It is already too late to make a fuss about it now since you two have already done it. Let's focus on our next move now!"
Tang Li Xue took out the jade inscription pen she got from Teacher Wei, a bottle of blood beast, and several stacks of blank talisman papers.
"I want you two to write all the herbs and ingredients you need to concoct all the pills on those lists now." Tang Li Xue said as she handed all the things in her grasp to the two disciples.
Although, Tang Li Xue heard everything when the female disciple mentioned everything they need to buy to the shopkeeper before, but there were more than 150 kinds of herbs and ingredients with different amounts. So, of course, Tang Li Xue could not remember all of them with only one mention.
"What?! Why should we tell you that? We can buy all of those ourselves! You only need to..." The male disciple shouted back at Tang Li Xue.
"Do you know our current situation right now? We have already become the fugitive in Quanhai City. The mayor of Quanhai City has already given the order to lock all the gates and forbid anyone to leave the city for now. The patrol guards already spread out everywhere to search for us, and they even started to distribute our pictures everywhere." Tang Li Xue explained the information she got from her perfect copy.
Actually, Tang Li Xue was caught off guard by the speed of their response.
The mayor of Quanhai City actually already started to mobilize the city guards when Tang Li Xue still thought she has at least a few hours of time before the guards making their move and will try to arrest them.
She always thought that the human civilization in this Immortal World was far inferior compared to her previous world just like in the wuxia movie or novel.
But in reality, the civilization in the Immortal World was not at all inferior to her previous world at all. In fact, it might be even a lot more superior with specialized professions such as crafter and inscriptionist.
This was the reason for Tang Li Xue's misperception of this world, which led to her current miscalculation.
For example, Tang Li Xue thought there was no phone in this world. Therefore, she thought the information transmission in this world was still using the letter.
But this was a big mistake. Anyone could easily communicate with other people using the communication talisman, and the function was not inferior to the mobile phone at all.
It was true that the communication talisman could only cover several hundred miles away, but it was more than enough to be used inside the city or sect.
They will only use the letter if the person they want to contact was too far away and outside the reach of their communication talisman.
The moment when Tang Li Xue dragged the two disciples out from the pharmacy, the shopkeeper used his communication talisman to call the pharmacy's true owner.
The pharmacy's owner got really angry after heard what happened and called the mayor of Quanhai City to complain while the mayor of Quanhai City quickly called the head guard and told him to handle it swiftly.
The head guard moved quickly to the pharmacy and met with the shopkeeper. He asked the shopkeeper to describe their features clearly, make the pictures based on it, then started to distribute the pictures to the patrol guards.
"So what? Why do we need to write it for you?! Don't tell me you are planning to buy it all yourself and bring it back to the Myriad Foxes Academy just so you can steal our credit?! No way! We must buy it together!" The male disciple jumped backward and shouted at Tang Li Xue with a stance full of vigilance.
Tang Li Xue rolled her eyes and thought: 'I do not even know what to call you anymore... Stupid or Idiot? If I really want to steal your credit, I can easily rob it from you AFTER you bought all of it. Also, my mission is to protect you two to buy those things, not to bring those things back to Pharmacy and Alchemist Association!'
Tang Li Xue tried to explain and persuade the two disciples several times, but they still refused to tell Tang Li Xue about it. They even threatened Tang Li Xue that they will abort their assignment and go back to Myriad Foxes Academy then blame everything on Tang Li Xue.
Finally, Tang Li Xue snapped out and summoned her perfect copy back. Her invisible perfect copy approached the two disciples from behind before turning off her [Ethereal Form].
She raised her tiny fist and...
BAAAAAAANGGG~!!! BAAAAAAANGGG~!!!
Knocked out the two disciples!
Her fist struck the two disciples' head heavily from behind for the third time and made them fell unconscious again. Both of them fell down and planted their faces onto the dirty slum ground.
The thick blood flowed out profusely from their wounded heads, but Tang Li Xue did not even care about them and threw them into her medium-rank space pouch.
Tang Li Xue started to search for something from her extreme-rank space pouch for a few moments before pulling out a piece of paper.
There were twelve kinds of pills written on the paper. She remembered it all in a few moments before taking out the spatial ring from her space pouch.
Currently, Tang Li Xue did not know any herbs or ingredients to make any of these pills, but it did not mean Tang Li Xue could not learn it.
This spatial ring was something she stole from the renowned alchemist from Asura Demon Sect before.
There were many books about alchemists, formulas, and recipes inside this spatial ring.
At first, Tang Li Xue did not have any interest in alchemist or concocting the pill before, so she never touched this spatial ring anymore.
But now, she was forced to read these books one by one to find the formula of these twelve pills.
Tang Li Xue did not want to waste much of her time, so she used her precious deity coins to learn the books one by one.
The price to learn each of these books was not expensive only around 3-10 deity coins, but there were hundreds of books in the spatial ring, while she only had a little over 4,000 deity coins in her system.
Tang Li Xue gnashed her teeth in hatred and anger while thinking: 'Damn it! If these two idiots just tell me all the ingredients and herbs needed to make these pills, then I do not need to waste my deity coins like this!'
After she almost spent 2,000 deity coins to comprehend hundreds of books, she was assaulted by severe headache for a few moments as a large amount of knowledge about alchemist flooded into her mind.
Herbs…
Ingredients…
Pill concocting techniques…
Fire controlling techniques…
The countless basic pill formulas…
And so on.
…..
Ding!
[You have gained the basic knowledge and insight about the Alchemist Sub-Profession.]
[The Alchemist level is set to level 1 (beginner).]
'What?!' Tang Li Xue widened her eyes and shock.
She anxiously opened her window status in her system to check her current sub-profession.
[Sub-Profession: Inscriptionist (Level 4: Apprentice), Alchemist (Level 1: Beginner)]
Tang Li Xue sighed in relief when she saw her Inscriptionist sub-profession was still there and not replaced by Alchemist.
'So now I am an Inscriptionist and also an Alchemist?! Two sub-professions in a few months after I reincarnated into this world! Isn't that mean I am a super genius right now?!' Tang Li Xue giggled happily.
She looked at the paper with the list of pills written in it, and her smile curved even wider.
Not only she has all the knowledge about ingredients and herbs needed to concoct these pills, she even has the knowledge about how to concoct all of the pills.
Of course, having the knowledge to concoct it and concoct it for real were two separate matters.
It was the same as having the knowledge about the runes and inscribed it onto the blank talisman.
Without any experience or divine treasure like her golden [Inscription Pen] to help her, who knows how small her chance to successfully concoct the pill.
Tang Li Xue activated her [Ethereal Form], and her body turned invisible. Her perfect copy nodded to her and also did the same.
Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy shared the same mind, so her perfect copy also knew what they need to buy right now.
Tang Li Xue decided to separate the list of the things she needs to buy into two.
She and her perfect copy will go to two different pharmacy stores to reduce the risk of being caught by the patrol guards.
They could also complete their job twice faster with half effort this way.
Unfortunately, fate did not allow her to have it her way.
When Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy were heading toward the two different pharmacy stores at the corner of Quanhai City, the glutton egg in Tang Li Xue system inventory gave a strange reaction, which triggered the system's alert notification.
Ding!
[Warning! Detecting the sign of life in the Companion Egg is getting stronger!]
[Companion Egg will hatch in 15 minutes!]
[Warning! System inventory cannot hold any living creature!]
[Forcefully ejecting out the Companion Egg from the system inventory…]
[10… 9… 8...]
'What the heck!' Tang Li Xue dropped her jaw and jumped backward in shock.
