Chapter 386 Elder Yang VS Tang Li Xue!
Chapter 386 Elder Yang VS Tang Li Xue!
"I already let all of them go. Should you honor your promise and let her go too?" Elder Yang said to Tang Li Xue with a chilling cold tone.
Tang Li Xue chuckled and replied smugly: "What do you mean by 'honor my promise'? I never promise you anything, aren't I? I only said: 'stop there if you do not want her to die', right?"
"What do you want me to do so you can let her go?" Elder Yang did not want to engage in a nonsense talk with Tang Li Xue and asked directly what she wants.
"Simple! I just want you to let me go, and you must not chase after me anymore. You do not need to worry! I will definitely release her after I run a bit far away from here." Tang Li Xue immediately answered.
"That could not be done. Who knows if you will decide to silence her forever after I let you get away from here. What if I promise to let you go AFTER you release her right now?" Elder Yang offered his terms to Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue laughed mockingly at Elder Yang's offer and said: "Do you really think I am a fool? You will definitely try to arrest me after I release her, right? Then you will use me as a hostage to bait the others back and catch all of them in one go, right?"
Although Tang Li Xue looked as if she was only having a casual chat with Elder Yang, but her [Extrasensory Perception] was always tracking Elder Yang's every movement carefully.
From what her perfect copy had experienced, Tang Li Xue knew about Elder Yang's cunningness very well.
Even the fake Crown Prince Feng fell into this Elder Yang's trick in the cage of light before and almost lost his head.
Elder Yang sighed in disappointment and murmured: "Looks like we will never reach an agreement. It seems there is no other way than to fight each other."
Tang Li Xue's five senses were very sharp, so she heard Elder Yang's words very clearly.
"What did you say? Do you really not care anymore about this girl's life?" Tang Li Xue asked Elder Yang with an angry tone, but she became quite nervous and anxious in her heart.
Elder Yang stared back at Tang Li Xue and sneered coldly while said: "Of course, I care. But…"
Suddenly, something jumped from the collar of the perfect copy's clothes toward the real Tang LiXue's face!
Tang LiXue reflexively used her [Moonlight Flickering Flash Step]and swiftly jumped backward to dodge it, but unfortunately, she was still a tiny bit too slow.
Something very sharp had stabbed into her eyes!
"What the hell is this?! Red… needles? No, these are blood needles! But how could this thing…" Tang Li Xue exclaimed in shock. She could not believe that something dangerous like these could tuck into her perfect copy's clothes without her knowledge.
But Tang Li Xue's words were stuck in her throat when she remembered who gave the pink dress to her perfect copy before.
'Damn it! I knew that pink dress was given by Elder Yang to my perfect copy before attending the night banquet, but I would never expect that he would slip something dangerous like this into its collar! Did he already feel suspicious at my perfect copy's identity, so he put something like that to kill her if my perfect copy was proven to be the serial killer before? Argh, I should just choose the light blue dress given by Ye Zhen before!' Tang Li Xue gnashed her teeth in anger while her mind hastily thought.
Actually, Elder Yang only put a few drops of his blood into the collar of the pink dress before gifting it to Tang Li Xue's perfect copy as a form of insurance and protection for her.
Because he was afraid that something out of his prediction would happen tonight and threaten the life of Tang Li Xue's perfect copy.
It was already proven that Elder Yang's prediction was completely on the spot since the life of Tang Li Xue's perfect copy was already threatened twice tonight.
Elder Yang did not trigger these blood needles previously because he knew that the fake Crown Prince Feng would never hurt Tang Li Xue's perfect copy before he came out from the light barrier.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy was also under the effect of the fake Crown Prince Feng's illusion, and he did not know how far the fake Crown Prince Feng's illusion could control her. What if the fake Crown Prince Feng could still hurt Tang Li Xue's perfect copy even after Elder Yang saved her from the fake Crown Prince Feng's hands?!
Thus Elder Yang decided to wait for the more perfect timing to trigger these blood needles, and it was... right at this moment!
Elder Yang slashed his crimson blood sword toward Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy, right when Tang Li Xue reflexively jumped backward to dodge the blood needles.
The edge of the crimson blood sword not only turned flexible but also split into many thin blood threads.
Several thin blood threads tied the body of Tang Li Xue's perfect copy and pulled her toward Elder Yang.
Not only that, the rest of the thin blood threads even started attacking the real Tang Li Xue!
With her sharp [Extrasensory Perception], Tang Li Xue could still easily sense every thin blood thread that attacking her even without seeing with her eyes.
She pulled the rein of her Wind Riding Bird a bit upward and urged it to fly upwards to avoid the thin blood threads!
Tang Li Xue's Wind Riding Bird immediately understood Tang Li Xue's intention and flapped its wings rapidly as it flew swiftly toward the cloud above it, but when it happens...
'Eh? What the hell is that sound?' Tang Li Xue felt alarmed in an instant, but unfortunately, it was still too late for her.
That metallic sound actually came from the ring necklace around her neck!
Elder Yang's blood threads attack was actually no more than a diversion, and his true target was to take this ring necklace from Tang Li Xue's neck!
Elder Yang skillfully controlled the blood needles that pierced Tang Li Xue's eyes, and he made it as if the blood needles fell by themselves because of Tang Li Xue's violent movement.
Then he changed it into a small hook to take the ring necklace at Tang Li Xue's neck while Tang Li Xue's attention was completely distracted by the blood threads attack.
When Tang Li Xue's Wind Riding Bird flew upward toward the cloud, one of the blood threads joined with the small hook and pulled the ring necklace from Tang Li Xue's neck, then flew back toward Elder Yang.
All of his movements were very smooth as if he was a master fisherman that caught a fish.
Even Tang Li Xue agape in shock and disbelief.
She could hardly believe that Elder Yang could not only steal her hostage but also her precious treasure so easily.
Tang Li Xue took a deep breath, and she finally saw Elder Yang as someone really dangerous to her for the first time.
Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy had the same memories after all.
Although she knew Elder Yang was her opponent, but she still has some soft spot for him because of her perfect copy's memories with Elder Yang.
However, Tang Li Xue finally understood that treating Elder Yang like that would only backfire on her.
Her perfect copy was Elder Yang's cherished friend, but she was Elder Yang's enemy!
"Since when did you know my identity?" Tang Li Xue asked Elder Yang as she slowly opened her eyes again to stare at him.
Although Elder Yang's blood needles attack was fatal enough to make any human blind, but Tang Li Xue was from Beast Race.
Elder Yang's blood needles attack was nothing more than a scratch for any Beast Race since they could recover from any fatal wounds as long as their beast core was untouched.
Besides, Tang Li Xue has [High-Speed Regeneration] skill, and it made her self recovery ability above the other beasts. She only needed a few seconds to completely recover from those light wounds.
"From the very beginning, when you came to me. I do not know if you feel it too, but something inside me will starting to rage on if you came close to me." Elder Yang honestly answered Tang Li Xue's question.
Tang Li Xue frowned deeply when she heard Elder Yang's answer.
Her Flame of Pride also acted the same way as Elder Yang had explained, so Tang Li Xue immediately knew where the problem lies in an instant.
'So his blood transformation abilities is not from his martial soul, but because he has one of the 7 Earthly Desire Spirits?!' Tang Li Xue pondered carefully.
Suddenly, the Deep-Blue Phoenix of Pride that slept inside Tang Li Xue's Dantian had woken up and told something very shocking to Tang Li Xue.
'Eh? What?! You are saying that you sensed Quanhai City's blood monster from within him?! But that... It should be impossible, right? That blood monster might be one of the 7 Earthly Desire Spirits, but it belongs to the black-masked old man from the demonic sect, and I already finished him off at Quanhai City with a super long-ranged arrow.' Tang Li Xue replied to the Phoenix of Pride with her thought.
The Phoenix of Pride in Tang Li Xue's Dantian started to throw a tantrum in anger because Tang Li Xue doubted its words.
'Listen to me, you little brat! No matter how great your fellows from the 7 Earthly Desire Spirits, they would still definitely die if the master they assimilated died, right? So how the hell can it jump to another person and assimilate with a new master?! It would still make sense if their cultivation is far too different apart and the previous master is still alive, but both of them are at Core Formation Stage, and I clearly already killed that old man with a super long-ranged arrow!' Tang Li Xue expressed her doubt to the Phoenix of Pride.
But the Phoenix of Pride still affirmed to Tang Li Xue very firmly that it would never sense it wrongly.
'Oh, well... Whatever... No matter if he has one of the 7 Earthly Desire Spirits or not, he is still the enemy we need to defeat now. It is also good that you already awake from your sleep right now. Let's go, Pride! You want to get your revenge and defeat it by yourself, aren't you?' Tang Li Xue smiled as she said to the Phoenix of Pride in her Dantian.
The Phoenix of Pride shrilled loudly in excitement as it started to merge with Tang Li Xue.
The extremely hot deep-blue flame exploded out from Tang Li Xue's slender body!
The feeling Tang Li Xue felt right now was a lot stronger than what she felt in Quanhai City before.
The [Pure Sun Dragon] Bloodline in her body and veins was boiling hot in excitement and euphoria.
Every cell in her body started to awaken like the mythical beast awoken from its long slumber.
Even Elder Yang was forced to retreat when he felt the sheer unbearable heat coming from Tang Li Xue's body.
"Miss Chou, are you all right?" Elder Yang turned around and asked Tang Li Xue's perfect copy, who stood on the top of his flying sword too with a worried tone.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy shook her head and replied: "It is okay. I am all right."
"It will get more dangerous from now on here. You should get as far away from here as possible. I will give the control of this flying sword to you, so you can just fly away from here with it." Elder Yang told her with a stern tone.
"You want me to run away from here? But... I want to fight together with you..." Tang Li Xue's perfect copy replied with a reluctant tone. Of course, she was only put an act in front of Elder Yang to gain his trust.
When Elder Yang and Tang Li Xue's perfect copy chatted, the real Tang Li Xue already unfurled her pair of deep-blue Phoenix wings and flew without her Wind Riding Bird.
Tang Li Xue flapped the pair of deep-blue Phoenix wings on her back, and she swiftly flew with lightning speed toward Elder Yang!
