Chapter 315 Begone!
Chapter 315 Begone!
Tang Li Xue was completely dumbfounded by the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard]'s harsh words.
The [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] already started to countdown with its coarse voice: "10... 9... 8... 6... 5..."
Tang Li Xue gnashed her teeth in anger and shouted to the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard]: "You heartless liar! You promised that you will become my mount if I manage to release you before! But now, you act as if you have already forgotten everything about me!"
The [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] did not care and still counted down as if it did not hear her shouting: "4… 3… 2… 1… 0…"
Tang Li Xue's eyes started to get teary at the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] heartless words.
The [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] was her first friend in this Immortal World.
When she felt so lonely, only the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] would talk and care about her... Only she would help her in time where she needs it before.
So, how could she just accept it when her first best friend in this world treated her in a very cold manner like this?!
Tang Li Xue did not know that when the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] saw her teary eyes, it started to hesitate.
The [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard]'s heart felt so painful and suffocating as if it had just done something it should never do.
'Is it possible that I have really known her before? But... how is it possible?! Unless...' The [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] pondered carefully for a few moments and managed to grab some clues with its sharp wits.
"It's already more than 10 seconds! Begone now!" The [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] mercilessly shouted to Tang Li Xue while grabbed the back of Tang Li Xue's collar with the tip of its giant claws and threw her far away.
Tang Li Xue wanted to struggle out from the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard]'s grasp and cursed at it harshly before, but she immediately canceled that intention when she saw the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] winked secretly at her.
Tang Li Xue pouted in anger, but she could only accept it when the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] threw her away.
The other giant lizards felt Tang Li Xue was really pitiful, and they wanted to say a few words to stand up for her, but when the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] glared at them, the other giant lizards decided to not say anything anymore.
Tang Li Xue flew quite far away from the group of giant lizards.
Yaya sat silently on the top of Tang Li Xue's head, but she immediately used a tiny bit of her wind power to slowdown Tang Li Xue's falling speed, so Tang Li Xue could land easily on the ground.
"Thanks, Yaya!" Tang Li Xue patted Yaya's head, and Yaya giggled happily at her.
"Yaya is really the best! Unlike of that ungrateful Fake Dragon! How could it pretend to not know me after I helped it out from Asura Demon Sect?! If it does not want to become my mount, then it just needs to say so! I will certainly not force it to do it anyway!" Tang Li Xue grumbled in anger.
Yaya only frowned and nodded in agreement at Tang Li Xue's words.
Meanwhile, Little Loki only lazily yawned as it laid on Tang Li Xue's right shoulder as usual. Managing relationships were not one of its skills as one of the Four Fiend Beasts, so it certainly could not help Tang Li Xue in this matter.
"But that ungrateful Fake Dragon winked at me just now... what does it mean? Does it pretend not to know me because of some other reason?" Tang Li Xue mumbled to herself and frowned deeper.
"What do you guys think about its wink? Is it signaled me to do something for it or maybe it told me to pretend not to know it too? Argh... This is so confusing!" Tang Li Xue groaned again.
"Ya, yayaaya~!" Yaya said to Tang Li Xue after thinking for a while.
"You mean that Fake Dragon asking me to wait for it? It will meet with me later? Really?" Tang Li Xue asked with a skeptic tone.
Little Loki still did not say anything, but it only nodded its tiny furry head, signified that it also agreed with Yaya's speculation.
Tang Li Xue thought for a few moments and clapped her hands while said: "All right! Then let's wait for that Fake Dragon to come! But we still need to keep our eyes on those giant lizards... We cannot let them attack Lin Family's residence again before Instructor Lan and the others completed their tasks!"
Tang Li Xue glanced at Yaya and Little Loki with a warm smile on her face.
'It is really nice... to have my own family now...' Tang Li Xue thought as she laughed softly.
If there was no Yaya and Little Loki by her side to comfort her at this time, she might have already cried by now because she got forgotten by Fake Dragon.
Tang Li Xue did not know if Fake Dragon really forgot about her or just pretending to forget about her, but her sharp [Extrasensory Perception] faintly detected from its stare and tone that Fake Dragon really did not remember her at all.
But this matter was really strange for Tang Li Xue to think of, so she decided to ask Fake Dragon later if it really decided to come to meet her.
Even if Fake Dragon lied to her, and it did not come to meet with her, she would surely come over to it again to ask about it sooner or later.
After all, this case was really strange!
What if someone read Fake Dragon's mind before and find the secret of her divine treasure, then that someone decided to erase a part of Fake Dragon's mind about that?!
The more Tang Li Xue thought about it, the more certain she was about it!
'Anyway... I will wait patiently for now to get the answer from Fake Dragon!' Tang Li Xue decided while keeping track of every movement of those thirty giant lizards from afar.
In her free time, Tang Li Xue decided to use her free Stat Points to increase her Agility stat from 1,000 to 1,500 and her Spirit stat from 1,000 to 1,100.
Her free Stat Points had shrunk from 729 to 129.
Tang Li Xue's mind was assaulted by a terrible piercing headache for a few moments, but she already got used to it by now.
After the piercing headache was gone, Tang Li Xue felt her mind got a bit clearer, and her sense also got sharper. But her mind became quite exhausted now, and she really wanted to go to sleep.
Of course, Tang Li Xue knew that she could not fall asleep now, so she gritted her teeth to endure her sleepiness.
Tang Li Xue decided to move her body around to make herself get used to her new level of agility.
Her joint became a lot more flexible. Her reaction speed also turned out much faster than before.
She could even move much more agile now.
'Sigh... I need more free Stat Points, but why the hell my system did not give me any quest now?! Come on, system!' Tang Li Xue complained in her heart, but her system still did not give her any reply.
Tang Li Xue could only sigh in frustration.
The thirty giant lizards kept guarding full of vigilance.
They were guarding each other in rotation. Fifteen giant lizards took asleep to recover their stamina while the other fifteen were surrounding them to guard them against any harm.
After 5 hours or so, the fifteen giant lizards who already recovered their stamina were guarding, while the other fifteen who were still exhausted fell asleep.
The [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] took this chance to get away from the other giant lizards.
"I will patrol around here to check at our surroundings. All of you do not need to follow me, just guard here carefully." The [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] ordered to its squad as it spread its large bat-like wings and flapped it.
The [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] swiftly flew away into the distance, leaving the other lizards.
"That Fake Dragon has gone! Let's follow the direction of its flight!" Tang Li Xue whispered to wake Yaya, who was still sleeping at the top of a nearby tree branch.
Tang Li Xue brought Yaya away with her to follow the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard], while Little Loki never separated from Tang Li Xue and always lied lazily on her right shoulder from the start.
With her improved speed plus her level 5 [Moonlight Flickering Flash Step], Tang Li Xue could easily follow the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard], even though she was only sprinting on the ground while the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] was flying in the sky.
It did not take the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] too long before it descended back onto the ground after flying for tens of miles away from its group.
Tang Li Xue also did not use her [Ethereal Form] to sneak close to the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard], so the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] could immediately notice Tang Li Xue when she approached.
Under the night sky, the tiny silver fox and the giant winged lizard met with each other again after almost a half year of separation, just like when they first meet in the Confinement Fortress before, but they were in a different situation right now.
The [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] wanted to greet Tang Li Xue first, but it did not know what to talk about to her.
In the end, Tang Li Xue was the first one who asked the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard]: "You... Please tell me honestly! Do you really not remember anything about me anymore? Or do you only pretend to not know me in front of those other lizards?"
The [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] did not say anything and only stared silently at Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue did not know what it was thinking right now. It might be felt nostalgic after almost a half years of separation with her, or it might ponder if Tang Li Xue currently lied to it or not.
But the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] suddenly raised its large claw and tapped Tang Li Xue's forehead.
Tang Li Xue reflexively wanted to dodge it, but she decided not to avoid it in the end.
She only stood up without moving and let the [Red-Eyes Winged Lizard] tapped her forehead with its claw.
