Chapter 333 Eerie Little Black Kitten!
Chapter 333 Eerie Little Black Kitten!
The giant transparent figure of the tortoise and its deafening groan made Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao, who watched Tang Li Xue from afar, agape in disbelief and shock.
Even Instructor Mei Lan shook her head and smiled ironically, then murmured: "Little Xue, oh, Little Xue… Is this only a minor evolution for you?! This is the same as when any beast evolves into Beast Lord!"
"Instructor Lan, will my Little Xue be all right? Will she get suffocated inside that water tortoise?" Hei Yinghao asked Instructor Mei Lan with a worried tone.
Instructor Mei Lan used her [Sonar] ability to detect Tang Li Xue's condition and replied to Hei Yinghao: "Do not worry, she is more than just good right now. In fact, her strength is still steadily increasing even when she is inside that water tortoise. But it would probably take her a while to accumulate and stabilize her cultivation."
"Little Xue's ability is getting stranger and stranger. I do not even get it anymore! She can copy all of our divine abilities, but where did she get the ability to control the water like this?! But I hope she will be okay… since the process seems quite dangerous right now!" Bing Yi said while frowned deeply in worry.
"...She will be all right. Her vital organs are still working really well, and her heart is also still beating so strongly. Even the momentum of her aura still keeps climbing up and getting more powerful as the time goes on." Instructor Mei Lan said to comfort Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao.
Actually, even Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao were not really clear about what Tang Li Xue's divine abilities really were, but they knew that Tang Li Xue has the divine ability with the power to copy the other divine abilities.
That was why the two of them did not feel anything strange even when Tang Li Xue almost used her deep-blue Flame of Pride to burn down the mansion previously, or when Tang Li Xue suddenly wore a pair of golden gauntlets and used the divine ability to control the water in the sparring match against Bing Yi before.
However, triggering this kind of phenomenon amid her cultivation breakthrough was certainly too strange and more than just eye-catching.
But Instructor Mei Lan was still calm and unperturbed as always.
She already knew almost all of Tang Li Xue's secrets anyway.
Instructor Mei Lan guessed that this breakthrough should be related to Tang Li Xue's martial soul.
Although, her guess was not quite right, but at least she almost guessed half of it right.
Because something drastic was really happening to her martial soul, the [Golden Winged Serpent] right now!
Tang Li Xue's [Golden Winged Serpent] was actually started to coil around the tortoise created from a large amount of water!
In the legend, the Black Tortoise Deity or Xuanwu was thought to be the spiritual creature symbolizing longevity. Its figure was always depicted as the copper Black Tortoise entwined with a snake.
Tang Li Xue's Tortoise was clearly lacking that snake part until her own [Golden Winged Serpent] made up for that lack.
Tang Li Xue was in the middle of the Tortoise. She was submerged by the huge amount of water, but strangely, she did not feel any discomfort at all, and she could even still breathe as usual.
A steady stream of spiritual energy from the water kept flowing into Tang Li Xue's body to assist Tang Li Xue's breakthrough into Acupuncture Opening Stage.
The water elemental spiritual energy flowed in all of her veins and accumulated inside her Dantian.
This accumulation process actually took a few days to complete.
Fortunately, there were Instructor Mei Lan, Bing Yi, Hei Yinghao, Yaya, and Little Loki who helped to protect her from any demonic beast or human cultivator that tried to get close to her.
After a few days had passed, there was no more water around Tang Li Xue anymore. All the water had been absorbed by Tang Li Xue.
If someone looked at Tang Li Xue's Dantian right now, they would certainly very shocked, because the room in her Dantian was divided in two!
The half one looked like the world filled with crimson, deep-blue, and gold flames, while the other half looked like the world of the ocean filled with water!
This was the sign that Tang Li Xue already managed to reach Acupuncture Opening Stage.
Inside the ocean world in Tang Li Xue's Dantian, her martial soul, the [Golden Winged Serpent] was swimming around so freely and happily.
Tang Li Xue could feel that her [Golden Winged Serpent] got a steady stream of EXP while it was swimming in the ocean world inside her Dantian.
Tang Li Xue slowly opened her topaz blue eyes and checked her current cultivation level from her window status.

She sighed in relief when she saw her Cultivation Level already reach the Rank 1 Acupuncture Opening Stage in her window status.
'Damn! I am still level 10?! Sigh… It seems I must take more quests to increase it faster. I need more Stat Points, but I need more Skill Points the most right now. There are so many things I want to do with Skill Points!' Tang Li Xue started to ponder her next step.
'Buying new skills to try some new combinations to get more powerful divine abilities, combining all of my innate divine abilities into a higher-grade divine ability, upgrading the almost useless [All Knowing Eyes (Basic)]… Argh, too many things I need to do~!!!' Tang Li Xue groaned as she held her forehead in frustration.
After a few whiles, Tang Li Xue took a deep breath and calmed herself down, then whispered to herself: "All right, one step at a time. At least I managed to get a bit stronger now."
Tang Li Xue stood up and lazily stretched her rigid body for a few moments before decided to meet with Instructor Mei Lan and the others.
Instructor Mei Lan, Bing Yi, Hei Yinghao, Yaya, and Little Loki have actually formed a circle formation when protecting Tang Li Xue in the middle of it.
In these few days, Instructor Mei Lan and the others kept killing every demonic beast or human cultivator that got attracted by Tang Li Xue's breakthrough phenomenon because those beasts or people thought there was a natural precious treasure was born there.
Thankfully, Instructor Mei Lan helped Tang Li Xue by choosing a remote place like this Death Valley so not many beasts or people noticed the abnormal phenomenon.
If Tang Li Xue did her cultivation breakthrough in the populated place, even Instructor Mei Lan and the others might not be able to keep all of those beasts or people away from Tang Li Xue.
When Tang Li Xue walked toward Instructor Mei Lan, she saw some dead bodies of beasts or humans under the feet of Instructor Mei Lan and the others including Yaya.
Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao immediately happily hugged Tang Li Xue and asked if she was okay in a worried tone.
Tang Li Xue giggled at them and explained that she was not only okay, but she also got stronger than before.
Meanwhile, Yaya already swiftly pounced toward Tang Li Xue and rained her with many kisses. Tang Li Xue laughed and kissed Yaya back on her cheek.
Little Loki jumped to Tang Li Xue too, and she immediately caught Little Loki, then give it a thank you kiss on its furry forehead.
The atmosphere around them was really cozy and warm.
Only Instructor Mei Lan's attention was not directed at Tang Li Xue this time, but at the little black kitten in Tang Li Xue's embrace.
Instructor Mei Lan always kept tracking the situation around them with her [Sonar] skill.
She was always the first one to know when some beasts or people were approaching them.
But strangely, her [Sonar] skill could not detect Little Loki's whereabouts at all. Even Instructor Mei Lan herself did not know how Little Loki did it.
Instructor Mei Lan also always carefully warned the others when there were some people or some beasts were coming toward them.
She especially took special notice of Little Loki's direction because she was afraid that this little black kitten would not be able to drive away all of its foes.
Instructor Mei Lan did not know Little Loki's true ability yet after all.
However, Instructor Mei Lan immediately noticed something eerie every time there were some people or some beasts ran toward Little Loki's direction.
Her [Sonar] skill detected that those people or beasts have vanished like a thin air all of a sudden.
There was no blood spilled.
There were no dead bodies.
There was not even screaming or groaning.
