Chapter 275 First Meeting!
Chapter 275 First Meeting!
Unfortunately for Tang Li Xue, reality did not always work according to her wishes. That was the reason why anyone should always be prepared for the worst situation.
Just like what happened now…
Tang Li Xue was very sure that no one could detect where she was hiding with the combination of her [Conceal] passive ability and the [Art of Concealment] she trained until she reached proficient level.
But not everyone detected their enemies or preys through their five senses or their enemies' presence!
It did not take long for the sky to turn dark after Tang Li Xue dug her hidden cave to face the backlash from [Divine Possession] with Yaya.
When the night has come, many nocturnal predators started to come out from their nest and hunt for their prey to fill their hungry stomachs.
[Species: Purple Poisonous Tarantula]
This powerful [Purple Poisonous Tarantula] was one of the most powerful nocturnal predators in this unknown forest.
Moreover, the [Purple Poisonous Tarantula] did not find its prey with its five senses, but by feeling the vibrations of potential prey through their feet and the hairs on their body. When the prey was detected, they moved fast and literally pounced on them.
Different from the other tarantulas, the venom from [Purple Poisonous Tarantula] was especially ferocious. Its venom did not only paralyze its prey but also turned its prey into the liquid, so the [Purple Poisonous Tarantula] can eat it.
Right now, this steed-sized [Purple Poisonous Tarantula] managed to detect Tang Li Xue's hidden cave and swiftly creeping toward it.
It carefully dug the closed entrance with its front legs and put its head into the hidden cave. Its eight terrifying eyes stared greedily at the suffering Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue was still suffering from the [Divine Possession Mode]'s backlash and still unconscious. Her stamina did not recover even a bit until now because the unbearable pain from the backlash would sap all of her stamina immediately after she recovered a bit of it.
The [Purple Poisonous Tarantula] grabbed Tang Li Xue's body with sturdy front legs and brought her closer to its mouth.
Just when the [Purple Poisonous Tarantula] opened its mouth to bite Tang Li Xue's body and inject its lethal venom into her body…
The [Purple Poisonous Tarantula]'s huge body was thrown off several meters away, and Tang Li Xue's slender body fell from its front legs' grip.
A white shadow quickly flashed and caught Tang Li Xue before she could fall and hit the ground.
The white shadow was actually Elder Yang from Immortal Sword Sect!
He used his flying sword and flew at his full speed to the direction where the wind arrow came from. He wanted to find the person who saved him and thanked that person properly. He even wanted to offer some gifts of gratitude to that person.
In Elder Yang's mind, the one who saved him must be an elder with unmatchable martial art prowess.
That elder was traveling around the world with a bow on his back.
When that elder met with any injustice or villains like the black-masked old man, he will use his bow and arrow to execute them on the spot.
Alas, he failed to find that elder even after traveling more than fifty miles away from Quanhai City and met with this damsel in distress instead.
Elder Yang actually did not even realize this damsel in distress before because he flew so high in the sky. But the Blood of Lust assimilated in his body suddenly reacted when Elder Yang flew above her.
Elder Yang thought there was a treasure here, so he decided to check it for a moment only to find this black-cloaked woman who almost got eaten alive by a huge spider.
The [Purple Poisonous Tarantula] hissed in anger and pounced aggressively towards Elder Yang!
"SCRAM!!!" Elder Yang shouted in annoyance as he threw a kick toward [Purple Poisonous Tarantula].
[Purple Poisonous Tarantula] flew backward again for a few meters, while Elder Yang took a few steps back.
Elder Yang frowned deeply and murmured: "This insect is quite troublesome to deal with... and I do not have much Qi left after facing that old man for so long."
The [Purple Poisonous Tarantula] was the true predator and could be said to be the king of this unknown forest.
The [Purple Poisonous Tarantula] was the [Rare] grade demonic beast after all, not a mere [Uncommon] demonic beast.
Obviously, even the Core Formation Stage Expert like Elder Yang could not defeat it that easily as if flipping his own hand. Moreover, the [Purple Poisonous Tarantula] has a really tough carapace, and it did not even use its powerful divine ability yet.
Although Elder Yang felt he could defeat this [Purple Poisonous Tarantula] in one minute if he fought seriously, he obviously did not want to waste his remaining Qi and time to slay this [Purple Poisonous Tarantula].
So, Elder Yang decided to take out his flying sword from his spatial ring and jumped on top of it with Tang Li Xue in his arms.
Elder Yang quickly drove his flying sword and soared into the sky!
The [Purple Poisonous Tarantula] hissed loudly again in anger, and it spurted out its poisonous sticky web towards the flying Elder Yang. It tried to catch Elder Yang and Tang Li Xue with its poisonous sticky web and dragged them down from the sky.
Elder Yang controlled the flying sword under his feet swiftly to avoid the sticky web while increased his flying speed more and more until it reached his maximum speed.
The [Purple Poisonous Tarantula] kept hissing angrily, but it could not fly, so it could only curse Elder Yang in its mind for stealing its delicious and nutritious prey.
Elder Yang thought for a while and decided to not fly back to Quanhai City.
There will definitely be a very big commotion after the people in Quanhai City regain their consciousness.
It was true that Elder Yang, Tang Li Xue, and Ye Zhen already stopped the blood barrier from sucking the blood and vitality of Quanhai City's people as soon as they could to minimize the damage.
But some of the weaker people, such as elder people, sickly people, children, babies, and so on, would definitely pass away first.
It was just impossible to save everyone. They could only try to save most of them.
About a third of Quanhai City's population may have already died from that blood barrier's effect.
Elder Yang already channeled some of his Qi to Ye Zhen before he chased after the black-masked old man, so Ye Zhen already regained his consciousness earlier.
Elder Yang also ordered Ye Zhen to help the current weakened Quanhai City's people and appeased the commotion later after the people in Quanhai City regained their consciousness.
He also told Ye Zhen to explain the truth to the Quanhai City's governor so they could handle the aftermath.
Elder Yang sighed and shook his head. He decided to stop thinking about it and helped the fox-masked girl in his arms to recover first.
After flying for a while, Elder Yang landed on the valley and brought the unconscious Tang Li Xue into the natural cave.
Elder Yang put the unconscious Tang Li Xue and touched her wrist to check on her condition.
He frowned deeper after he diagnosed Tang Li Xue's condition since he failed to find the cause of her illness. The physiques of humans and beasts were completely different after all.
Although Tang Li Xue looked identical to any human right now, it was still impossible to diagnose her body with the human's body standards.
Elder Yang thought for a while again before he took out two pills from his spatial ring. It was Intermediate Antidote Pill and Intermediate Qi Restoring Pill.
He stuffed both pills into Tang Li Xue's mouth while murmured to her: "I can only help you this far. You can only count on yourself to recover hereafter."
Elder Yang went out of the cave after that. He did not even touch Tang Li Xue's fox mask, black cloak, or hood which covered her face and head.
Everyone has their own secret, and Elder Yang knew about this the most, just like how he must wear this silver mask to cover his face.
The backlash from [Divine Possession Mode] lasted for several hours before it completely subsided.
After the painful backlash subsided, Tang Li Xue finally could fall asleep in peace to recover her Qi, vitality energy, and stamina.
The next morning, Tang Li Xue was awoken by the fragrant smell of roasted meat.
It was such a familiar fragrance… The fragrant that she craved so badly from time to time.
She did not fully recover all of her energy yet, but at least, she could already move around unhindered right now thanks to Elder Yang's Intermediate Qi Restoring Pill.
Tang Li Xue's long silver eyelashes fluttered slightly as she slowly opened her topaz blue eyes.
She got up and looked around the unfamiliar cave in confusion.
Tang Li Xue frowned deeply. She quickly checked her body, space pouches, spatial rings, fox mask, her white clothes, her black cloak, and black hood.
Tang Li Xue sighed in relief after she made sure nothing was missing or changing from her limbs and clothes to her belonging, but she did not dare to lower her vigilance yet.
She decided to get up and walked out from the cave to look for the source of the mouth-watering fragrance.
After Tang Li Xue went out of the cave, she saw the young man with a silver mask on his face and wearing a set of white clothes was roasting meat meticulously beside the campfire.
His steady sitting figure was overlapping with the black-robed man in Tang Li Xue's eyes.
For some unknown reason, Tang Li Xue saw the man in the black robe was grilling meat while chatting and teasing someone happily instead of the silver-masked man right now.
Unfortunately, the face of the black-robed man was very blurry. Tang Li Xue could not see his expression clearly, but somehow, she knew that the black-robed man was very happy.
Tang Li Xue felt really dizzy, and she shook her head.
The person in front of her eyes turned back into the silver masked young man again, and she has completely forgotten about the black-robed man again.
"You woke up already? How is your body? Do you still feeling…" The silver masked young man turned around and asked Tang Li Xue, but he immediately stunned silly when she saw Tang Li Xue's pair of familiar topaz blue eyes.
It was a pair of most beautiful and mesmerizing eyes, but that was not the reason why Elder Yang dumbfounded right now...
"Xiao… Bai?" The silver masked young man subconsciously muttered.
