Chapter 350 Finally, Another Quest!
Chapter 350 Finally, Another Quest!
Crown Prince Feng released his sword in fright and shock.
He retreated backward again until he bumped hard onto the wall behind him.
He felt his energy had been drained by the tension and could no longer stand up, so he accidentally fell and sat on the floor.
Clear liquid started to wet his pant and the pungent smell of urine was started to spreading in the air.
There was no more haughtiness and dignity left in Crown Prince Feng's current appearance.
Crown Prince Feng could no longer hold on. He felt like he will lose his mind soon if he kept staying in this room flooded with blood and littered with dead bodies, so he started shouting out loud again: "AAAAAHHHH~!!! Help! Guards! Guards! Please, help me! HEEEELLLLPPP~!!! ANYONE, HELP ME~!!!"
Suddenly, there was a husky voice that replied to Crown Prince Feng's shout: "There is no one who will help you tonight. But you do not need to worry. I will send the 'others' to catch up to you soon, including your father and mother."
After saying that, the black-cloaked person appeared once again in front of Crown Prince Feng.
The black-cloaked person strangled Crown Prince Feng's neck so tightly until Crown Prince Feng felt suffocated and could not breathe.
The black-cloaked person lifted the sitting Crown Prince Feng until he slowly stood up, then finally Crown Prince Feng's body was floating on mid-air under the black-cloaked person's strong vice-like grip.
Crown Prince Feng's mouth flapped open and closed like a fish out from the water. His eyes also turned bloodshot, and his face turned purple.
The black-cloaked person kept strangling Crown Prince Feng while used the other hand to grip Crown Prince Feng's forehead.
CRACK~!!! CRACK~!!! CRACK~!!!
The black-cloaked person applied its strength onto its grip until Crown Prince Feng's head twisted in such an unnatural way.
Crown Prince Feng did not immediately die. He could still feel the unimaginable pain as his vision tilted to the direction it should not be able to.
The black-cloaked person used its strength to twist Crown Prince Feng's head until it separated from his body and the blood sprayed everywhere like the blood rain.
Crown Prince Feng could see his own headless body in his last moment right before his consciousness fell into eternal oblivion.
The black-cloaked person was still holding the Crown Prince Feng's head in his grasp and kept mumbling with its hoarse voice: "One more down... But it's still not enough...This is still far from enough... More! More!"
RUMBLE… RUMBLE… RUMBLE…
Under the bright flash of lightning, the black-cloaked person's bloodshot eyes were revealed. The eyes were filled with hatred and killing intent.
But the black-cloaked person vanished again after a few moments just like before, and the room went back to its usual stillness.
In Instructor Mei Lan's room, Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao already fell asleep so tightly, but Tang Li Xue still stayed awake until now.
Tang Li Xue could not fall asleep, even though she still closed her eyes for some time. So she decided to check on her status window in her system.
Many of her skills had already reached the mastered level, so she decided to upgrade some of them now.
'Telepathy, Concentration, Decrease Reaction-Time, Focus, Sharpen Mind, Calculation, Prediction, and Intelligence Enhancement... These are the eight skills that I want to upgrade now, but I must spend 10 Skill Points to upgrade each of them!' Tang Li Xue thought as she checked her skills on her status window.
'The heck, that is so expensive! I only have 146 Skill Points right now, and I must spend 80 of them just to upgrade my skills?! That is more than half of my Skill Points' saving!' Tang Li Xue complained in her mind.
Tang Li Xue became very reluctant to upgrade these skills because she already planned to use her Skill Points to combine her three innate divine abilities into one since long ago.
Tang Li Xue really did not want to spend any of her Skill Points but it seems she would need to upgrade these eight skills to finish her new current quest.
Yes, Tang Li Xue finally managed to trigger a new quest before she entered Tang Feng City today.
Tang Li Xue glanced at her system notification log.
[Quest: (Inspector) The cold-blooded serial killer is currently lurking in Tang Feng City. Many lives have already fallen in its hands. Help Instructor Mei Lan catch that cold-blooded serial killer and stop it from doing more slaughter.]
[Requirement: Keen Senses and High-level of Intelligence]
[Reward: Level +3(+1), Stat Point +300(+75), Skill Point +45(+11), 400(+100) Deity Coins]
[Requirement for Perfect Evaluation: Defeat the Serial Killer by your own hands.]
[Additional Reward: Skill Point +100]
There was a new line in this new quest compared to the previous other quests that Tang Li Xue had completed before. It was telling about the requirement to get the perfect evaluation.
'What the hell?! Defeat the Serial Killer by my own hands?! So you are telling me to face the serial killer at the Spirit Beast rank alone?! Why don't you just tell me to commit suicide with a block of tofu right now?! Sigh... System, why the hell is you so unreasonable?!' Tang Li Xue grumbled in her heart.
But Tang Li Xue must admit that despite the almost impossible requirement for the Perfect Evaluation, the Additional Reward was surely very enticing.
It was 100 Skill Points!!!
What Tang Li Xue needed the most right now was the Skill Points and Deity Coins to comprehend her new Ancient Martial Art, [Yin and Yang Chaotic Formula]!
Tang Li Xue took a deep breath and thought: 'Calm down, Tang Li Xue! You must be more realistic. It is futile if you lost your life when trying to chase that Perfect Evaluation for the additional reward!'
Tang Li Xue gnashed her teeth to push away her hesitation as she chose the first skill to upgrade.
[Telepathy skill already reached mastered. Do you want to upgrade it to Lock-On Telepathy with costs of 10 Skill Points? Yes/No]
'[Lock-On Telepathy]?! It sounds good... YES!' Tang Li Xue licked her silently pink lips and agreed to upgrade it.
[Telepathy upgraded to Lock-On Telepathy Ability.]
Tang Li Xue's [Telepathy] skill was always sluggish when she tried to communicate secretly with anyone specifically, and she could only do it from very close like when she was standing right beside the target.
But after her [Telepathy] skill upgraded to [Lock-On Telepathy] right now, she felt that she could do it flawlessly without using much effort even from tens of meters away as if telepathy had become second nature for her.
'Next! Let's upgrade [Calculation] Skill first!' Tang Li Xue took a deep breath again and chose [Calculation] skill.
[Calculation skill already reached mastered. Do you want to upgrade it to Precise Calculation with costs of 10 Skill Points? Yes/No]
'[Precise Calculation]?! WOW~!!! This sounds so OP! YES!' Tang Li Xue gasped in awe and agreed again.
[Calculation upgraded to Precise Calculation.]
Tang Li Xue immediately felt that she could calculate everything very easily inside her mind in an instant.
Unfortunately, this [Precise Calculation] was really wasted on an unscholarly type of person like Tang Li Xue, who spent most of her previous life in the hospital rather than school.
The skill to calculate everything so precisely inside her mind in an instant was truly an impressive OP skill, but applying it in everyday life or even in the middle of fierce battle was another matter altogether.
Tang Li Xue would need to learn a lot of mathematic formulas and how to apply them first before she could use this [Precise Calculation] skill to its fullest potential, but unfortunately, no mathematician could teach her on this subject anymore in this Immortal World.
'This skill is pretty OP… I can probably easily become a great mathematician if I am still in my previous life. But it seems quite useless to have it now... Oh, well... At least, I can count my money easier with this skill. Next! [Focus] skill!' Tang Li Xue imagined for a while but immediately decided to move on to upgrading the next skill.
[Focus skill already reached mastered. Do you want to upgrade it to Intense Focus with costs of 10 Skill Points? Yes/No]
'[Intense Focus]? Doesn't sound so impressive, but… Let's upgrade it now and see it! YES!' Tang Li Xue licked her lips and approved the upgrade notification.
[Focus upgraded to Intense Focus.]
After the [Focus] skill upgraded into [Intense Focus], Tang Li Xue felt that her mind turned much clearer in that instant.
Tang Li Xue felt that she could easily think deeply, analyze, and focus on whatever she was doing under any pressure or any condition anytime without feeling distracted.
'This skill is awesome! It's especially really useful when I am fighting in the middle of a fierce battle! I can keep my head cool with my [Indomitable Will] skill and maintain my focus with this [Intense Focus] skill. Not bad… Next! Upgrade [Prediction] skill!' Tang Li Xue excitedly chose to upgrade the next skill.
[Prediction skill already reached mastered. Do you want to upgrade it to Accurate Prediction with costs of 10 Skill Points? Yes/No]
'Woah, [Accurate Prediction]~! Just from the name alone is already enough to tell that this skill is OP and very practical! There is no need to hesitate anymore to upgrade this skill! Absolutely YES!' Tang Li Xue unhesitatingly chose yes.
[Prediction upgraded to Accurate Prediction.]
Tang Li Xue felt in an instant that she could predict everything on her surrounding in a radius of several meters with this [Accurate Prediction].
The feeling from this [Accurate Prediction] skill was much more superior to the previous [Prediction] where she could only faintly predict her opponent's movement before.
Of course, the effect of this [Accurate Prediction] skill was still far inferior to Yaya's [Wind God's Eyes], but that all made sense since Yaya's [Wind God's Eyes] was an OP divine ability of Wind Elemental Spirit while [Accurate Prediction] was only classified as usual skill.
However, Yaya's [Wind God's Eyes] could only predict everything in Yaya's field of vision, while the [Accurate Prediction] skill in a radius of several meters from Tang Li Xue.
'AMAZING~! This skill is truly amazing! I really cannot wait to try this skill in the real battle!' Tang Li Xue gasped in awe from the indescribable wonderful feeling given by this [Accurate Prediction] skill.
Unfortunately, this [Accurate Prediction] skill also has a fatal weakness compared to Yaya's [Wind God's Eyes] divine ability, if the enemy's speed surpassed Tang Li Xue, then she would still not be able to do anything, even if she could predict where her enemy will attacks.
Meanwhile, Yaya's [Wind God's Eyes] could still see through any kind of attacks or movements, no matter how fast it was, and predict it several moves earlier than Tang Li Xue's [Accurate Prediction] skill.
Anyway, Yaya's [Wind God's Eyes] and Tang Li Xue's [Accurate Prediction] have their own strength and weakness, so both of them would complement each other when Tang Li Xue entered [Divine Possession Mode] with Yaya and would make them more powerful in that mode.
