Chapter 379 Taking a Hostage!
Chapter 379 Taking a Hostage!
The fake Crown Prince Feng secretly glanced at Tang Li Xue's perfect copy in surprise, and Tang Li Xue's perfect copy nodded at him to reassure him.
The fake Crown Prince Feng quickly regained his composure.
His right hand had already been grabbed so tightly by the Nascent Soul Stage elder, and he almost lost his right hand too right now, so he would definitely get caught in a couple more seconds.
He knew that he did not have any other choice than to believe in Tang Li Xue's perfect copy for now.
Crown Prince Feng's pair of eyes started shining with mysterious purple light once again, just like before.
Topaz blue eyes of Tang Li Xue's perfect copy also shone with mysterious purple light, and she became dazed in that instant.
Actually, Tang Li Xue's perfect copy could resist the effect of the fake Crown Prince Feng's illusion-type divine ability, but she decided to not resist it this time and let the illusion affected her mind.
'I am a nobody for them, so having me in your control may not be enough for you to bargain with them, so you MUST use me to approach that Elder Yang right after you took control of me and take him as your hostage too.' Tang Li Xue's perfect copy warned the fake Crown Prince Feng with a stern tone using her [Lock-On Telepathy] skill.
The fake Crown Prince Feng felt really surprised again when Tang Li Xue's perfect copy could still maintain her awareness even after she voluntarily fell into his illusion-type divine ability. She could even still use her [Lock-On Telepathy] skill and give him some advice.
But the fake Crown Prince Feng immediately carried out the advice from Tang Li Xue's perfect copy without any hesitation this time.
Of course, Elder Yang and the other Nascent Soul Stage elders also realized that the fake Crown Prince Feng was currently planned to do something since his eyes suddenly shone with mysterious purple light.
"Quickly arrest him now! You can knock him out if he still tried to resist!" Elder Yang ordered the Nascent Soul Stage elders in a solemn tone while frowned deeper.
The Nascent Soul Stage elders also increased their movement and attack speed to subdue the fake Crown Prince Feng as quickly as possible.
The Nascent Soul Stage elder that grabbed the fake Crown Prince Feng's right hand even deliberately dislocated the joints until it made a loud cracking noise, so the fake Crown Prince Feng could no longer fight them back.
Just when the Nascent Soul Stage elders almost brought down the fake Crown Prince Feng, suddenly…
"HALT~!!!" A luscious sweet voice shouted out of nowhere.
The three Nascent Soul Stage elders reflexively turned around toward where the voice came from.
They were very shocked when they saw that Tang Li Xue's perfect copy already held a military sword she got from nearby fainted guards and put it on Elder Yang's neck from behind.
But the three Nascent Soul Stage elders immediately realized that Tang Li Xue's perfect copy was currently under the effect of fake Crown Prince Feng's illusion ability when they saw her eyes were shone with mysterious purple light now.
The fake Crown Prince Feng coldly laughed and said: "Hehehe… Do you really actually think that my life is already in your grasp?! Unfortunately for you all, I managed to get your leader because you are looking down on me too much."
When the other two Nascent Soul Stage elders wanted to just kill the fake Crown Prince Feng out of anger, the oldest Nascent Soul Stage elder immediately raised his hand to stop them and glanced at Elder Yang for further instruction.
"What do you want? We can discuss it slowly as long as you release her from your illusion." Elder Yang calmly said with a lazy tone as if the one who got threatened was not him at all.
"Dream on! Do you really think I am a fool?! First, let me kill that dumb Emperor, then you need to dispel this light barrier as fast as possible and let me escape from here. Only then I will release that girl and you!" The fake Crown Prince Feng replied with a coarse voice as fresh blood kept flowing out from his mouth.
Elder Yang quickly shook his head and said: "I am sorry, but I cannot let you kill the Emperor even if you threaten my life. But I can still let you out from here if you let Miss Chou go. You can even use me as your hostage until you go out from here. How about it?"
The fake Crown Prince Feng pondered it carefully for a few moments while he kept staring suspiciously at Elder Yang's expression.
"All right, that Emperor can keep his life for now. But I will never release that girl or you until I managed to get away from here! Now, open this light barrier and let me out from here!" The fake Crown Prince Feng replied again.
"Okay… This Revealing Light Swords Formation is set by those three elders and me. It is incredibly hard to dispel it, so it will take quite a lot of time to do it. You need to wait patiently for it since I must be moving around to point at the hidden runes to those three elders so they can disperse it for us. Do you agree with it?" Elder Yang explained to the fake Crown Prince Feng and asked for permission to move around.
"This…" The fake Crown Prince Feng knew that everything Elder Yang told him was true, but how could he let Elder Yang go just like that.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy could sense that the fake Crown Prince Feng started to hesitate, so she immediately reminded him again with her [Lock-On Telepathy]: 'Do not be fooled by him! He is the mastermind of all these traps, so he is really smart and cunning! Just stick with the first plan and stall for ten minutes until my people come to bring us out from here!'
The fake Crown Prince Feng nodded his head a bit to signal that he understood.
"I do not want to hear any of your excuses!" The fake Crown Prince Feng shouted back in anger to Elder Yang as he controlled Tang Li Xue's perfect copy to drag Elder Yang closer toward him.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy was still pointing the military sword very close to Elder Yang's neck while walking toward the fake Crown Prince Feng, so Elder Yang did not have any other choice than to follow her.
But after Tang Li Xue's perfect copy brought Elder Yang close enough to the fake Crown Prince Feng, Elder Yang's eyes glinted coldly as he suddenly flicked the military sword on his neck away with his finger.
Of course, he did not actually use his finger to knock the military sword away. He made his finger bleed with his own nail in secret while distracting the fake Crown Prince Feng with his conversation, then condense a small blood knife on his index finger using the [Blood of Lust] in his blood.
The sharpness of the small blood knife condensed from his blood was far surpassing the military sword, and it easily cut the military sword in the grasp of Tang Li Xue's perfect copy in two.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy had lost control of her body, including her [Extrasensory Perception] divine ability because she was still under the effect of the fake Crown Prince Feng's illusion-type divine ability.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy could only sense everything with her five senses right now, so she failed to notice what Elder Yang secretly did before because she was still stood right behind Elder Yang while pointing the military sword in her grasp to Elder Yang's neck.
If she sensed it with her [Extrasensory Perception], she would already warn the fake Crown Prince Feng about it. Unfortunately, it was already too late now.
'Damn, I knew it! He is such a cunning and dishonest fellow! He even dared to blackmail me in front of so many people like it was nothing before! So how could he treat the unknown serial killer so sincere here?!' Tang Li Xue's perfect copy complained and cursed Elder Yang for his crooked behavior in her mind.
Under Elder Yang's perfect control, the blood knife on his index finger changed into a thin but very sharp thread of blood!
The thread of blood flashed so quickly and coiled around the fake Crown Prince Feng's neck in an instant!
The fake Crown Prince Feng wanted to duck down to dodge the thread of blood, but his movement speed was a bit slow since the sharp blood thread was already wrapped around his neck.
Elder Yang only needed one pull to separate the fake Crown Prince Feng's head from his neck.
'This is bad! I cannot just watch and let this happen!' Tang Li Xue's perfect copy immediately realized it and decided to make his move to help the fake Crown Prince Feng.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy swiftly swung her palm and chopped toward the sharp thread of blood that extended from Elder Yang's hand to Crown Prince Feng's neck.
Her palm was coating with beautiful silver light, and it created a silver arc on the air as she swung it downward toward the sharp thread of blood.
Elder Yang: "?!"
The sharp thread of blood that extended from Elder Yang's hand to Crown Prince Feng's neck was cut by Tang Li Xue's [Moon Splitter].
Elder Yang felt quite surprised by Tang Li Xue's perfect copy swiftly reaction time because the reaction of any person under the mind-control or illusion usually got slowed down a lot, and all of their senses would turn dull, but Tang Li Xue's perfect copy seemed completely unaffected by it right now.
