Chapter 313 Extreme Yin Technique!
"Se… Seriously?! I… I am doing this alone?! Instructor Lan, I might be not ready for this…" Tang Li Xue said to Instructor Mei Lan while stuttered.
Hei Yinghao nodded and assisted Tang Li Xue's words: "Instructor Lan, this task is too dangerous for Little Xue alone! At least, please let me and Ice Girl help her!"
Bing Yi also nodded her head repeatedly.
Instructor Mei Lan shook her head in disagreement and said: "Honestly, the two of you will only become Little Xue's burden. Little Xue has several life-saving abilities that make her capable of advancing and retreating at will. This is the reason why I give her this task. But if you follow her, not only she must make those thirty powerful lizards busy for some time, but she also must protect you from them."
Hei Yinghao and Bing Yi felt really dejected after they heard Instructor Mei Lan's words.
Instructor Mei Lan stared at Tang Li Xue after saying all of that.
Watching the gentle smile on Instructor Mei Lan's expression, Tang Li Xue's danger instinct kicked in, and she subconsciously took a few steps backward.
"But if you do not like that task, we can exchange our task. Our team task is to find half of the Ancient Martial Art Manual. You already failed to find any clue about it despite already asked around for a few hours before, so I planned to take a bit heavier measure." Instructor Mei Lan told Tang Li Xue.
"A bit heavier measure?" Tang Li Xue asked with a curious tone.
I plan to catch a few people from Lin Family and Oracle Mountain Sect, then torture them until they say the whereabouts of the half Ancient Martial Art Manual. If they still refuse to say it, I probably will have to use an extra measure. Do you want to know what my extra measure is?" Instructor Mei Lan said to Tang Li Xue as her smile turned even gentler, but a glint of cruelness flashed in her eyes.
Tang Li Xue gulped her saliva in nervousness and replied: "No…
I… will definitely make those lizards busy as long as I can! Instructor Lan, you do not need to worry about it!"
"All right, you can go now!" Instructor Mei Lan waved her hand signaled Tang Li Xue to leave now.
But Tang Li Xue still did not leave the room. She rubbed her hand in anticipation and approached Instructor Mei Lan with a weird smile on her face.
"What do you want to ask again this time?" Instructor Mei Lan asked with a hint of annoyance.
"No, no, no… I do not want to ask anything. I hear from Bingbing that Instructor Lan already has half of the Ancient Martial Art Manual from the male lizard. Can I see it for a moment?" Tang Li Xue asked with a tone filled with excitement.
Instructor Mei Lan stared at Tang Li Xue with suspicion and asked: "Any martial art manual is useless for us, the beast race. Why do you want to see it?"
"No… Nothing! I am just very curious about the content of the legendary heaven-rank Ancient Martial Art Manual." Tang Li Xue replied nervously.
Instructor Mei Lan still felt suspicious by Tang Li Xue's behavior, but she still took out the half of the Ancient Martial Art Manual from her space pouch and gave it to Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue swiftly took the ancient-looking scroll from Instructor Mei Lan and impatiently unfurled it to see its content.
Tang Li Xue widened her eyes in surprise when she saw the content of the ancient-looking scroll.
She felt really shocked by the content of this half of the Ancient Martial Art Manual.
"..... What the hell with this language?! I do not understand any of it at all! What is this alien language?! Instructor Lan, are you really sure that you did not get scammed by that male lizard? Maybe he gave you a fake scroll?" Tang Li Xue asked Instructor Mei Lan with a disappointed tone.
"Do you think I am really that stupid?! This is the ancient language. This Ancient Martial Art Manual should be written from the old era more than a million years ago." Instructor Mei Lan smacked the back of Tang Li Xue's head in anger and made Yaya, who lazily sat on the top of Tang Li Xue's head almost fell down.
'Wait a minute, my system can even decipher the Secret Coded Message in Asura Demon Sect before… So, it should be able to make me comprehend this Ancient Martial Art Manual too, right? Let's try!' Tang Li Xue thought as she tapped the content of half Ancient Martial Art Manual and willed her system to work.
[Do you want to comprehend The Ancient Martial Art: Extreme Yin Technique (First-Half) with cost 500 Deity Coins? Yes/No]
'Wohooo~!!! I really love you so much, my super convenient system! If you are a person, I would already marry you by now!' Lang Li Xue almost cannot hold her urge to kiss her system's confirmation display.
'I need to use 500 Deity Coins to learn it?! It is very expensive! Even my [Four Mythical Guardian Beast] only cost 210 Deity Coins before! Well, it is only the Crimson Phoenix part, but still… aren't 500 Deity Coins too expensive for only half part of that Ancient Martial Art Manual?' Tang Li Xue groaned in her mind.
Tang Li Xue peeked at the current total of her Deity Coins at her status window and found out that she currently has over 2,000 Deity Coins in her savings.
Tang Li Xue hesitated for a few moments and pondered it carefully before decided it.
She gritted her teeth and shouted in her mind: 'Instructor Lan will definitely destroy this Ancient Martial Art Manual later, so I only have a few chances to learn it. Uarrrgghh… Here I come ~! My first martial art! YES!'
Tang Li Xue expected a head-splitting headache to assault her mind, so she closed her eyes and gritted her teeth to endure it, but she only felt nausea and dizziness when the knowledge about the half of Ancient Martial Art Manual entered her brain.
'It did not feel painful at all?! It seems this is another effect of increasing my Spirit Stat… So, I also need a higher Spirit Stat to learn more powerful art, in order to nullify any painful backlash like before? Damn, the Spirit Stat is really important! Looks like I still need to increase my Spirit Stat even more even after it reached 1,000.' Tang Li Xue thought.
Meanwhile, Instructor Mei Lan only smiled and looked at Tang Li Xue's change of expression from time to time in amusement from beside her.
When Tang Li Xue raised her head and her gaze met with the staring from Instructor Mei Lan and the others, she also smiled back at them in awkwardness.
Tang Li Xue returned the ancient-looking scroll to Instructor Mei Lan and thanked her. She also wanted to ask for Instructor Mei Lan to show the other half of Ancient Manual to her before destroying it later, but she felt too embarrassed to say it.
Instructor Mei Lan could already read Tang Li Xue's intention from her body language, so she said to Tang Li Xue: "It seems this half of the Ancient Martial Art Manual is quite useful to you. Do not worry! I will definitely show the other half part to you first later."
Tang Li Xue's topaz blue eyes brightened, and she happily said: "Thank you very much, Instructor Lan! I will go now!"
Tang Li Xue bid her farewell to Instructor Mei Lan, Bing Yi, and Hei Yinghao.
She also bid her farewell to the people from Oracle Mountain Sect and Lin Family and said to them that she has an urgent task from Elder Yang, so she needed to go back first.
After sprinted a few miles away from Lin Family's residence, Tang Li Xue took out her white-colored Wind Riding Bird and drove it to chase after the thirty flying lizards.
It might be quite hard to locate a group of tiny birds on the top of this Misty Mountain Peak, but thirty giant lizards were really too easy to find since they were too eye-catching!
However, the biggest problem for Tang Li Xue was not to find the location of the thirty giant lizards, but how to make them busy until Instructor Mei Lan and the others finished their task!
"Also… what is wrong with my system?! Is it broken or something?! It refused to give me any quest when I try to slip into the golden barrier, and now, it still did not give me any quest too!" Tang Li Xue grumbled in frustration.
In the previous mission with the two arrogant disciples of Alchemist and Pharmacy Association, Tang Li Xue thought she made a mistake by taking the quest from her system too early.
If she asked the quests for infiltrated the Quanhai City, defeated the red-dressed lady, stopped the blood barrier to saving the people from Quanhai City, took the fragment of Divine Treasure, helped Elder Yang from Immortal Sword Sect, and so on… Didn't it mean she could get multiple rewards from only one mission?!
Tang Li Xue tried her theory in this mission but it seems failed...
'Tsk! This system is really way too smart, right?! Is it noticed my intention, so it did not give me anymore quest because of it?! What a cheapskate system! What is wrong with giving more rewards to me?! I need a lot of levels to evolve to [Rare] grade this time!' Tang Li Xue complained to her system in her mind.
Unknowingly, Tang Li Xue already arrived at the place where those thirty giant lizards took a rest.
"Now what?! Should I just get close to them and make them busy by talking to them? Maybe telling them the story of 'One thousand and One Nights'?" Tang Li Xue murmured as her mind started to think off some plans.
