Chapter 355 Instructor Mei Lan's Plan!
Chapter 355 Instructor Mei Lan's Plan!
"All right, everyone! This is the plan...." Instructor Mei Lan proceeded to tell Tang Li Xue, Bing Yi, and Hei Yinghao about her plan since the plan needs their cooperation.
After Instructor Mei Lan told her plan to all of her students, the only thing left for them was to execute it flawlessly without any mistake.
"AAARRRGGGHHHH~!!!" Hei Yinghao suddenly groaned out loud in pain while holding his stomach to draw the attention of all guards.
Just like how they planned it before, all of the imperial guards' attentions focused on Hei Yinghao in that instant.
Hei Yinghao hastily ran toward the door while kept holding his stomach. When he faced the imperial guards who guarded the door, he immediately said: "I... I cannot hold it anymore! Please, let me go to the toilet right now! I need to take a crap immediately."
The imperial guards glanced at each other in bafflement after they heard Hei Yinghao's words, and then one of them replied: "Wait a minute, we will need to ask for our captain's permission first."
When one of the imperial guards wanted to go outside to ask, Hei Yinghao quickly shouted again to him: "Please, be hurry! I really cannot hold it for much longer anymore! ARRRGGHHH~!!! PLEASE, BE FASTER~!"
While Hei Yinghao drawing all of the imperial guards' attention with his acting and shouting, Instructor Mei Lan kept rubbing her hands together.
She actually used her [Demonic Tune] and [Heavenly Sound] divine abilities to secretly create inaudible ultrasonic sound.
The inaudible ultrasonic voice she made easily made all the imperial guards in the room feel dizzy, nauseous, and headache.
But the imperial guards already trained daily in harsh conditions, so they could easily grit their teeth to withstand the effect.
Of course, the main reason they could withstand Instructor Mei Lan's sound wave attack right now because she was still holding back most of her strength.
Instructor Mei Lan's purpose was not to make them fainted after all but to make these imperial guards unable to focus and realize what they were doing right now.
Meanwhile, Bing Yi held Tang Li Xue's hand and channeling her freezing power to Tang Li Xue's body.
Bing Yi's freezing power made Tang Li Xue's body covered by a thin layer of frost, but it was not over yet. Bing Yi still kept channeling her freezing power non-stop to Tang Li Xue's body.
In only a few seconds, Tang Li Xue's body was already encased by a thick layer of ice because of Bing Yi's freezing power.
Normally, Tang Li Xue would be already frozen, but Tang Li Xue skillfully covered her body with water using her Water Controlling Technique she got from the [Black Tortoise] chapter of [Four Mythical Guardian Beast Art].
While Bing Yi skillfully controlled her freezing power to freeze only the water and create a thick layer of ice on the surface of Tang Li Xue's body, not to attack Tang Li Xue nor to freeze her.
Their objective was to create an identical ice statue of Tang Li Xue within the shortest amount of time without being noticed by any imperial guards.
But the most difficult part of their plan was for Tang Li Xue to get out from the ice statue without breaking it.
Why did they need to do all of these troublesome things like this while Tang Li Xue could easily get out of this room by her [Ethereal Form] divine ability?
The reason for that was because Tang Li Xue needs to leave this room without being noticed by any imperial guards to not make a huge commotion.
In order to do that, they need to create an identical ice statue of Tang Li Xue to take her place and that identical ice statue needs to wear Tang Li Xue's clothes, Cloud Covering Veil, black cloak, and black hood!
Well, it was not like all of the imperial guards here could see Tang Li Xue's appearance since almost her entire body was covered by her white clothes, black cloak, and black hood right now, while her face was covered by Cloud Covering Veil.
"Little Loki, Yaya, I will put you two into my system storage first for a few minutes, okay? I will summon you two out again after I manage to go out from here." Tang Li Xue explained to Yaya and Little Loki with her [Lock-On Telepathy] and swiftly opened their status window in her system, then stored the two of them into her system's storage space.
After the identical ice statue of Tang Li Xue had been created by freezing the water that covered Tang Li Xue's entire body, it was finally time for Tang Li Xue to get out from the ice statue without breaking it.
The cold sweat poured out from Bing Yi's forehead because of her nervousness.
It made sense since Bing Yi never even practiced doing something like this before, but now, Instructor Mei Lan suddenly urged her to do delicate work like this without any single mistake.
Bing Yi took a deep breath to calm herself down before putting her right hand on Tang Li Xue's back to disperse the ice there and let Tang Li Xue out from the ice statue.
Because the ice on Tang Li Xue's back melted, the water slowly trickled down and wetted the bed where Bing Yi and Tang Li Xue sat together right now.
Both Bing Yi and Tang Li Xue were really scared that some imperial guards would notice what they were currently doing because of this, so they tried to hasten the process.
The set of white clothes Tang Li Xue wore were actually automatically created by her silver badge she got from the Mission Hall of Myriad Foxes Academy, and she stored it in her space pouch right now.
In short, she could not bring even her space pouch with her or the white clothes would vanish when she was going far enough from there!
Wait a minute… Doesn't it mean she would run all around the place naked without her clothes and cloak?!
Tang Li Xue used her [Moonlight Flickering Flash Step] while turned off her incomplete [Transfiguration: Human Form] and turned back into her fox form, then swiftly jumped out from the back of her ice statue that had already been melted by Bing Yi before.
After that, she activated the equipment skill from the [Shadow Striders]: [Shadow Flash] to teleport outside the room and instantly appeared on the blind spot of the imperial guards.
[Shadow Flash: Teleport to any shadow up to 100 meters away in an instant. Cooldown: 10 minutes. ]
Tang Li Xue managed to find this blind spot thanks to her several upgraded skills that help her analyzed the situation around the room and the sharp sense of her [Extrasensory Perception]!
Tang Li Xue did all of those series of movements in an instant, and her movement was lightning fast!
Even if some imperial guards kept watching at her in the room before, they would probably not notice anything strange other than her black cloak that flapped like it was blown by the wind.
At this point, Tang Li Xue only needs to activate her [Ethereal Form] divine ability to turn herself invisible and ran out of this Cherry Blossom Spring Palace to carry out the mission given by Instructor Mei Lan to her.
After Tang Li Xue managed to escape from the room and left her identical ice statue intact while wearing all of her clothes behind, Bing Yi finally could sigh in relief.
However, Bing Yi's relief did not last long when several imperial guards realized that the bed where she and Tang Li Xue's ice statue sat was currently wet.
Bing Yi felt really nervous, and she quickly tidied up the black cloak of Tang Li Xue's ice statue to cover itself more.
Even Instructor Mei Lan was ready to make her move after she saw the reaction of several imperial guards.
Contrary to Bing Yi and Instructor Mei Lan's expectation, the several imperial guards only sneered at them while looking at their bodies with lewd expressions.
Apparently, those imperial guards thought that Instructor Mei Lan and the others were wetting themselves out of fright and nervousness.
Both Bing Yi and Instructor Mei Lan glanced at each other and sighed in relief at the same time.
As for Hei Yinghao, the captain of Imperial Guards still did not permit him to go to the toilet even after he was begging and whining.
The captain of the Imperial Guards only give a chamber pot to Hei Yinghao and told Hei Yinghao to take a crap there in front of the captain himself.
Hei Yinghao really wanted to cry right now, but he did not have any other choice other than trying to do it in order for him to not get suspected.
Tang Li Xue did not have any clue about the identity of the serial killer yet, nor she knew the serial killer's motive to kill so many people, but at least, she could faintly guess the serial killer's next target.
Just from this fact, anyone could tell that the intelligence of the current Tang Li Xue was already improved quite a lot compared to yesterday because of her several upgraded skills.
'The serial killer used so much effort to slip into Feng Empire's Imperial Palace… If I am not wrong, then the serial killer's target should have the person from the Feng Imperial Family... or even might be the entire people in Feng Imperial Family!' Tang Li Xue deduced in her mind.
'Oh well… there is no way for me to know what is in the serial killer's mind without any clue or trace… It seems I must go to the Imperial Family's palace. That serial killer should be there to hide while looking for a chance to kill her target!' Tang Li Xue decided the next step she would take right now.
'But first… Let's find a set of clothes to wear first… It is really uncomfortable to stay in the fox form while roaming around the Imperial Palace like this. I cannot even use my claws to grab on something properly! A set of maid's clothes would be the best since I can even disguise myself while wearing it.' Tang Li Xue thought while looking around to find a maid's room.
Honestly, Tang Li Xue felt much more comfortable when she was in her fox form compared to when she was in her human form.
Maybe this was all because her true form was a fox right now, and she was not a human anymore.
But using her fox form to roam around the Imperial Palace filled with humans was the same as a suicide move.
Just like what Instructor Mei Lan had told her before, her [Ethereal Form] might be really convenient to use in hiding, infiltration, and escape, but it was far from invincible.
