Chapter 356 Finding the Maid Outfit!
Chapter 356 Finding the Maid Outfit!
Especially for the human cultivator at Nascent Soul Stage or the beast in Spirit Beast Level that could sense anyone in the vicinity through their soul, Tang Li Xue's [Ethereal Form] divine ability could not hide in from the people and beasts at this level since they would immediately know her position by sensing the position of her soul.
But it did not mean that her [Ethereal Form] divine ability would be completely useless in front of the human cultivator at Nascent Soul Stage or the beast in Spirit Beast Level!
At least, the passive ability of her [Ethereal Form] divine ability, [Conceal], would still hide her identity as a fox in human form along with her aura, trail, cultivation level, and her body scent from them.
If Tang Li Xue disguised herself as one of the maids and blended in with the other maids in this Imperial Palace, then even the human cultivator at Nascent Soul Stage or the beast in Spirit Beast Level would not be able to tell her apart from the real maids.
Unfortunately, Tang Li Xue faced an even bigger problem, and she needs to solve it first before she could blend in with the other maids in the Imperial Palace.
Her extremely stunning beautiful face was too eye-catching for an infiltration and investigation mission like this!
If she ran around the Imperial Palace to investigate the serial killer with her extremely beautiful face while wearing a maid outfit... just how many perverted officials would order her to clean their room then forcefully push her down on their bed?!
Just imagining how much trouble she would face was already more than enough to make Tang Li Xue trembled in fear.
'How troublesome?! I cannot even cover my face with a mask if I disguise myself as a maid. But I will surely get suspected if I roam around the Imperial Palace while wearing the other type of clothes. Oh, well... I will think about that later! Let's find the place where the maid and servant live first!' Tang Li Xue decided in her mind.
Then... it did not take long for Tang Li Xue to get lost in this big Imperial palace.
There were too many places and buildings in this big Imperial palace such as Hall of Ancestry Worship, Pottery Gallery, Treasury Gallery, Painting Gallery, Hall of Cultivation, Imperial Library, Imperial Study, Hall of Military Prowess, Hall of Literacy Exhibition, Headquarter of Imperial Guards, and so many more.
Not to mention there were so many different palaces and halls for the relative of the Imperial Family, distinguished guests, and important officials to stay.
Of course, Myriad Foxes Academy was actually much bigger than this Imperial Palace, but the previous Tang Li Xue with her Bronze Badge could only access less than 20% of it.
Even the current Tang Li Xue with her Silver Badge could only access about 30% or so like Battle Arena, Night Market, and so on, but she still did not have any free time to visit those places yet.
Moreover, Myriad Foxes Academy has so many foxes in their human form or fox form walking around and shops along the street, so Tang Li Xue could just ask for the right direction from them.
Meanwhile, Tang Li Xue could not ask for the right direction from anyone here since she was in her fox form right now! She could not even turn back into human form for now since she would be completely naked without any single sheet to cover her body if she turned back into a human.
'Darn it! Who the hell built this Imperial Palace?! I really want to bite them to death right now! This place should be called Maze Palace rather than Imperial Palace! Also, where the hell all the people here?! Other than the patrolling imperial guards, I did not even see a single servant or maid passed by!' Tang Li Xue gnashed her teeth in anger while complained in her mind.
After the massacre incident last night, all the maids, servants, and butlers would need to undergo the intense identity check in their respective hall to clean them from all suspicion. This was the reason why Tang Li Xue could not find any maids, servants, and butlers passed by until now.
Tang Li Xue did not know anything about this yet, so she still tried to find some maids on her way to follow them back to their place then steal… I mean to borrow their outfit to disguise herself.
Tang Li Xue roamed around the Imperial Palace aimlessly for one hour or so before shouted in frustration inside her mind: 'All right! This is enough! I would just check the random room one by one from now on! I would just wear any random woman's clothes I find and start to investigate the Imperial Family's Palace!'
Just when Tang Li Xue had decided to do that, her [Extrasensory Perception] suddenly detected something hiding behind the bushes on a corner of the garden.
Rustle… Rustle… Rustle…
Tang Li Xue immediately raised her guard to the maximum and focused her [Extrasensory Perception] to where that rustling sound came from, but she still did not dare to approach it so carelessly.
'Eh?! One person? No, there are two people hiding there! Who are they?! Why are they hiding there in the daytime like this?! Don't tell me that they are the serial killers?! To think there are two serial killers, and both of them are hiding here together!' Tang Li Xue deduced in her mind.
Tang Li Xue carefully extended her sense of [Extrasensory Perception] toward the area behind the bushes, in hope that the two serial killers failed to notice her presence.
Tang Li Xue did not hope too much.
She only wanted to see the current appearance or face of the two serial killers before swiftly escaped from here as fast as she could and reported back the information she got to Instructor Mei Lan.
But the scene behind the bushes was completely different from what was in Tang Li Xue's mind…
"Ahn~!!! Is that really okay? For us doing something like this in the middle of the day?" The female voice talked with an erotic tone.
"That is all right. Almost all of the imperial guards are guarding those coward officials while all of the maids, servants, chefs, and butlers are still undergoing identity check." The male voice talked with a ragged voice.
"Ah, ah, ah… But I also need to undergo identity check too…" The female said as her voice became even more seductive.
"Hehehe… What are you afraid of? I am the captain of the Imperial Guard right now. I only need a few words to confirm your identity. Hehehe… All you need to worry right now is how to satisfy my lust." The male voice replied with a lecherous tone.
"Ahn~!!! So rough! Imperial Guard's captain… you are really so lewd!" The female said while giggled in a lustful tone.
That female spoke in such a seductive way that it burned the lust of the Imperial Guard's captain more fiercely, and then they copulated with each other more passionately.
Tang Li Xue: '…..'
Tang Li Xue was completely speechless right now.
The difference between the truth and what was in her mind was too far that she could not process it in a while.
After woke up from her daze and calmed down herself, Tang Li Xue started to gnash her teeth in anger and cursed those perverted two in her mind: 'Darn it! These adultery pair are really impudent! How dare they do an obscene thing like this in the broad daylight?! Scared me to death!'
'Urrrgghhh… This is so disturbing, especially since I see something like this using my [Extrasensory Perception]! Give me back my innocent, you darned perverted pair!' Tang Li Xue kept cursing the perverted couple, but her expression immediately changed when she saw the female's maid outfit hid inside the bushes.
'This is it?! Just when I need it the most right now... What great timing?!' Tang Li Xue's heart turned 180 degrees from anger to delight.
Tang Li Xue did not only find the female's maid outfit but also the male's imperial guard uniform and his armor were hidden inside the bushes near them with her [Extrasensory Perception] divine ability.
Tang Li Xue thought deeply for a while, she made a plan to take the maid outfit from inside the bushes without being noticed by the perverted couple.
Since Tang Li Xue could not hold anything in her [Ethereal Form] divine ability, she needs to cancel it the moment she grabbed the maid outfit.
But if she canceled her [Ethereal Form] divine ability, then she would no longer in an invisible state and anyone could see her very clearly, let alone her fox form was very eye-catching with her silky smooth shiny silver fur.
'All right, the easiest way is to distract their attention first with something!' Tang Li Xue thought as she licked her sharp fangs and secretly activated her [Energy Manipulation] to create a sharp white sword.
Of course, she did not plan to kill the perverted couple without any reason. She only wanted to use this sharp white sword to cut the branch of the tree nearby to distract them for a moment.
The sharp white sword turned into a white flash and easily cut the branch of a nearby tree like a piece of paper.
The branch of that tree fell onto the ground and made a quite loud sound.
The perverted couple gasped in shock and immediately got down to hide in the bushes.
Meanwhile, Tang Li Xue canceled her [Ethereal Form] and used her [Moonlight Flickering Flash Step] to swiftly grab the maid outfit hidden in the bushes nearby in an instant.
'Oh, well… I may as well take the imperial guard uniform and armor to teach this adulterous couple a harsh lesson! I want to see if they will really go back to their place completely naked!' Tang Li Xue thought in her mind while giggled mischievously.
Tang Li Xue only need to touch all the clothes and armor, then used her equipment skill, [Shadow Flash], to instantly teleported from there to another shadow.
