Chapter 282 Teacher Li Wei’s Demand!
'Little Loki can even eat the blood barrier at Quanhai City without any problem, so eating this Spring Ice Fruit should be no problem too, but I still have some doubts if the effect of this Spring Ice Fruit will work on Little Loki.' Tang Li Xue shook her head and eliminated Spring Ice Fruit in her mind.
'It seems these ancient black talismans, Metal Body Refinement Talisman, are the most reliable, and even the effect were also the greatest amongst all. Moreover, these ancient black talismans applied directly to Little Loki's body and strengthened its body directly from outside.' Tang Li Xue has decided her choice
'I also do not need to worry if Little Loki completely digested it and nullified the strengthening effect by turning it into its energy since Little Loki would not eat it like Spring Ice Fruit.' Tang Li Xue thought, and she stretched her hands to take the ancient black talismans, but Teacher Li Wei moved faster and immediately stored back all the three black jade boxes into his space pouch.
Tang Li Xue's expression turned dark in an instant, and she asked Teacher Li Wei with a frustrated tone while pouting: "Teacher Wei, are you only teasing me? You already promised to help me…"
Teacher Li Wei laughed at Tang Li Xue while replying: "Since when I promise to help you? I only said that I will tell you the way to strengthen your friend's body."
"But did you forget that I also said 'there is nothing free in this world'? If you want to get something, you must trade it with something of equal value in return." Teacher Li Wei said to Tang Li Xue with a teasing tone.
"There is nothing free in this world? Something of equal value in return? But… Teacher Wei… But I do not have something valuable enough to trade with that Metal Body Refinement Talisman?!" Tang Li Xue answered Teacher Li Wei with a tone and expression filled with desperation.
Teacher Li Wei chuckled and leisurely replied: "Simple.
You can just pay it using your body."
Tang Li Xue swiftly hugged her own body while staring vigilantly at Teacher Li Wei as if she was staring at a pervert.
Teacher Li Wei laughed out loud at Tang Li Xue's reaction and said: "What kind of dirty thing are you thinking, little lass? You are still a tiny fox toddler, but already have dirty thoughts like that."
Teacher Li Wei cleared his throat and explained seriously this time: "What I want to say is that you can take this Metal Body Refinement Talisman, but you need to do something for me in return. This Metal Body Refinement Talisman is very precious. In fact, it is the most precious one amongst the three, so you need to do at least three things for me. How about it? If you agree with it, we will sign the contract together, and I will immediately give it to you."
Tang Li Xue pondered for a few moments before replied in reluctance: "Two things. I will only do two things for you at most, and your requests also must not against my conscience. Doing something like harming Instructor Lan or betraying Myriad Foxes Academy is surely out of question!"
Teacher Li Wei stunned silly for a while before laughing out loud again while saying: "Little Lass… You… You are really funny… so funny! Do you think you are in the human faction where they are betraying one against another? Little Lass... Oh, Little Lass... In the Beast Race, even the worst beast will never do something to harm their own race. And also, do you really think you can harm that Dummy Lan with your pathetic level of strength?"
"It seems you have failed to understand your Instructor's true strength. She is pampering all of her students too much including. That is why I always called her Dummy Lan. Listen up, Little Lass! That Dummy Lan has a very scary level of strength, even I would never dare to underestimate her. The reason why she appears a bit weak in front of all of her students is because she does not want to hurt all of you with her true power." Teacher Li Wei genuinely warned Tang Li Xue for her own goods.
"Actually, all of her students that died outside the Myriad Foxes Academy before also misunderstood Dummy Lan's true strength. That is the reason why they paid dearly with their life. I know you and your friends will follow Dummy Lan when she is doing her mission outside of the Myriad Foxes Academy from now on, so I will give you a piece of advice." Teacher Li Wei said as his expression turned solemn.
"Trust her fully and always do what she ordered you to do." Teacher Li Wei stayed quiet for a few moments to give Tang Li Xue sometime to process his words.
"I always fully trust Instructor Mei Lan… But what Teacher Wei means by misunderstood her strength?" Tang Li Xue asked in confusion.
Teacher Li Wei shook his head and patiently explained again: "Dummy Lan has a very very powerful and really wide area of effect divine abilities, and what she has already shown to you all in your training was only the tip of the iceberg, a tiny sliver of her true prowess. But if you and your friends near her, she would never be able to use it at its full strength, or you all would be turned into fox corpses in an instant."
"To be exact, bringing you all on her mission is like bringing a few heavy burdens on her mission. Not only she needs to complete her mission, but she also needs to carefully watch your movement all the time while controlling her strength in battle just so she would not accidentally hurt you all too. Honestly, I personally think that you all are not ready for this, it's still too early for you and your friends to do this." Teacher Li Wei concluded his explanation.
Tang Li Xue went silent after she heard Teacher Li Wei's explanation. For the first time, she finally realized how much Instructor Mei Lan cherished and pampered her, Bing Yi, and Hei Yinghao.
The time when she was doing the mission with two pampered disciples flashed in her mind.
'If I follow Instructor Lan on her mission… I… Will I be the same as them? A burden for Instructor Lan…' Tang Li Xue also realized that she was still lacking a lot in many areas compared with her Instructor Mei Lan.
Instructor Mei Lan did not bring Tang Li Xue and the others to help her complete the mission but in order for them to gain more experience and grow faster under the pressure.
"Doesn't it mean I should not stay near Instructor Lan when she is fighting someone strong?" Tang Li Xue asked Teacher Li Wei.
Teacher Li Wei shook his head again and replied: "You do not need to think too much. You and your friends still have no experience, so how could you all judge the situation clearly. You all just need to follow Dummy Lan's order and never trying to act smart on your own, then everything will be all right."
"Okay! Let's get back to our main topic!" Teacher Li Wei took a bigger talisman paper from his space pouch and wrote something on it, using his inscription pen and his own blood as the ink.
"I still have something important to do, so I don't have time to bargain with you. Actually, two requests are far from enough to be traded with Metal Body Refinement Talisman, but I will reluctantly accept it because you are my own student. Use your blood to sign on this agreement, and you can take the Metal Body Refinement Talisman away." Teacher Li Wei gave the big yellow talisman paper to Tang Li Xue.
"Teacher Wei… why do we need to be this formal? Just promise between us is not enough?" Tang Li Xue felt offended by what Teacher Li Wei did. She felt Teacher Li Wei did not trust her.
Teacher Li Wei chuckled at Tang Li Xue's question and replied: "Little Lass, do you really think you are trustworthy enough? You probably will run away or pretend not to understand if I asked you to do something without any proof like this."
Tang Li Xue pouted and begrudgingly bit her thumb, then sticking her thumb on the yellow talisman paper.
After giving back the yellow talisman paper to Teacher Li Wei, Teacher Li Wei took out the black jade box containing the ten ancient black talismans from his space pouch and gave it to Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue happily accepted it. She checked the content of the black jade box to make sure Teacher Li Wei did not give her the wrong one before storing it into her space pouch.
After talking and asking for a few things, Tang Li Xue bid her farewell to Teacher Li Wei and brought Yaya out from Teacher Li Wei's place.
Tang Li Xue was really afraid that Little Loki's condition would be worsened, so she brought Yaya and hastily heading directly back together to the Residential Building.
When Tang Li Xue and Yaya arrived in front of her room's door, someone unexpected already waited for them there.
"Eh... Instructor Lan! Why are you here?" Tang Li Xue yelled in surprise.
Instructor Mei Lan already spotted Tang Li Xue and Yaya first, so she only giggled and waved her hand at them.
