Chapter 421 Stairway to Inheritance Ground Tablet!
Chapter 421 Stairway to Inheritance Ground Tablet!
Tang Li Xue's [Extrasensory Perception] got sealed along with all of her other divine abilities and her Beast Cultivation System in this Cang Yang Mountain.
Even her [Spirit Perception] was severely limited here, and it could only sense everything in a radius of two or three steps around her, so she did not have any other choice than to turn her head and keep glancing at the core disciples of Five Virtuous Sects that chasing behind her to check the distance between them.
Tang Li Xue immediately realized that the distance between them kept getting closer and closer even though she already used [Talisman of Lightning Speed +3] and [Talisman of Wind Step +3] to increase her speed.
Tang Li Xue's scalp went numb when she saw the core disciples from the White Crane Sect and Oracle Mountain Sect started to attack her from behind with their ranged attacks in unison after they managed to get a few meters behind her back.
[Flying Sword Intent]!
[Ice Sealing Arrow]!
[Sky Rendering Slash]!
Several tens of different kinds of attacks were hailing upon Tang Li Xue from behind.
Tang Li Xue would not feel that worried and anxious if these attacks shot toward her when she could use her divine abilities since she has many options to block them. She could condense wall or shield with her [Energy Manipulation]; she could use [Moonlight Flickering Flash Step] to dodge them; she could even blast all of those attacks with [Sun Dragon Claws] and [Sun Dragon Fangs].
But now? She almost has no other option than to dodge it with [Snow Dance Step], or she would certainly turn into a bloody pulp!
Of course, she could also enter [Perfect Assimilation] mode with her Phoenix of Pride, but that was the last option she would take if she has no other option anymore.
The grass and soil under Tang Li Xue's feet were covered by a thick layer of ice in an instant when Tang Li Xue did not hesitate to use [Snow Dance Step] to increase her speed further and started to run in a zigzag pattern!
All attacks struck the place where Tang Li Xue has stood before and left several deep craters on the ground.
Tang Li Xue admitted that the effect of this [Snow Dance Step] was quite good, and the rain of the snowflake looked really cool.
But the burst speed boost and flexibility of [Snow Dance Step] was still far inferior compared to Tang Li Xue's [Moonlight Flickering Flash Step].
It made sense since Tang Li Xue's [Moonlight Flickering Flash Step] was the complete merge between [Blink] skill and bloodline battle style, [Moonlight Flash Step], while [Snow Dance Step] that she copied from Meng Ying was only a high-grade martial art and Meng Ying did not even train it to reach Transcendence State yet.
Tang Li Xue already started to miss her [Moonlight Flickering Flash Step] so badly now after she knew how great it was.
Tang Li Xue sighed in relief after she managed to avoid their first attacks and gnashed her teeth in anger: 'These brainless people… Are they just a bunch of idiots with muscles or what?! Why the hell they dare to attack me so mercilessly like that?! Do they really forget that I still have that fake Snow Fairy in my grasp right now?!'
When the core disciples from the White Crane Sect and Oracle Mountain Sect wanted to simultaneously attack Tang Li Xue from behind again for the second time, Tang Li Xue took Meng Ying out from her space pouch and carried Meng Ying on her shoulder, so the core disciples from the White Crane Sect and Oracle Mountain Sect could see Meng Ying clearly.
Of course, Tang Li Xue already tied Meng Ying with her [Blood Sealing Chain] when she was still unconscious before, so Meng Ying could not even struggle free from Tang Li Xue's grasp now.
Meng Ying could only glare at Tang Li Xue with a pair of eyes filled with anger and killing intent. If her glare can kill people, Tang Li Xue would surely already die hundreds of times right now.
"Insolent! How dare you kidnap our Senior Sister Meng!"
"Release her now and fight me one on one if you dare?!"
The core disciples from the White Crane Sect and Oracle Mountain Sect began to repeatedly curse and provoke Tang Li Xue out loud, but they did not dare to attack Tang Li Xue again from behind.
Tang Li Xue did not reply to any of them and only rolled her eyes in disdain, then thought: 'All right… I already confirm it. So, they are really a group of brainless idiots. Here I have your beloved Senior Sister Meng in my hand, then what makes you think that I will not use her as my shield?! In fact, I can even toss her to block a few of your attacks before!'
Tang Li Xue started to ponder her next move carefully while kept sprinting at her full speed.
'Should I stop for a moment and use this fake Snow Fairy's life to threaten them to not chase after me? Nope... It is clearly a bad move. If they managed to surround me when I stopped running and threatening them, the situation would become even worse. Sigh... Looks like I have no other choice than keep running like this until I reach the peak of Cang Yang Mountain and enter Inheritance Ground Tablet.' Tang Li Xue decided in her heart.
Tang Li Xue kept running at full speed and using both [Talisman of Lightning Speed +3] and [Talisman of Wind Step +3] again and again after the effect was run out, but she did not keep using [Snow Dance Step] since her Qi was still quite limited because her current cultivation was only at Rank 1 Acupuncture Opening Stage.
Meanwhile, the current cultivation of all core disciples from Five Virtuous Sects was already at Rank 9 or even Peak of Acupuncture Opening Stage, and some of them were ready to breakthrough to Foundation Establishment Stage in Inheritance Ground Tablet later.
So, their running speed was still faster than Tang Li Xue even when she already used [Talisman of Lightning Speed +3] and [Talisman of Wind Step +3].
Although they did not dare to attack Tang Li Xue because she used Meng Ying as her shield, but they slowly caught up to her and encircle her from all directions while kept looking for an opening or opportunity to bring her down and took Meng Ying back safely from her.
'There are already five people in front of me, four people on my right side, and six people on my left side. As for the people right behind me...
Three, six, seven, eight... oh well, there are surely a lot of them... Damn it! Just how far is that Cang Yang Mountain's peak?! I already kept running with my full speed for almost two hours!' Tang Li Xue started to complain in her mind.
Several core disciples of Oracle Mountain Sect whipped the ropes towards Tang Li Xue from four different directions with the intention of tying Tang Li Xue's limbs!
While the young girls of the White Crane Sect started to target Tang Li Xue's feet with their ice-type ranged attacks to freeze her feet and slow her down.
'I knew they are up to something no good!' Tang Li Xue exclaimed in her mind.
She immediately used Transcendence State of [Drifting Cloud Palms] and skillfully deflected the ropes with her palms.
Tang Li Xue's steps also became erratic and ice-type ranged attacks from the young girls of the White Crane Sect completely missed.
'Awesome! This Transcendence State of [Drifting Cloud Palms] is convenient and easy to use! It seems this martial art is really suitable for me! Maybe because I am currently cultivating Black Tortoise part of [Four Mythical Guardian Beast]?' Tang Li Xue thought in delight.
Tang Li Xue swiftly used [Water Mirage], and her slender figure was split into many in an instant.
Each of Tang Li Xue's [Water Mirage] clones ran in different directions and made the core disciples of Five Virtuous Sect confused.
"What a despicable move?! What should we do now? we cannot attack her since Senior Sister Meng is still in her hands, but she will get away if it continues like this!"
"So what?! We should just attack her! I bet Senior Sister Meng will not mind if we hurt her a bit as long as we manage to catch that thief!"
"Are you crazy?! What if we accidentally kill Senior Sister Meng?!"
The core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sect started to argue in agitation and confusion.
The real Tang Li Xue quickly took this chance to take out three [Talisman of Stealthy +3] from her space pouch and used them on herself, Meng Ying, and Little Loki who sat silently on her right shoulder below her cloak.
After a few minutes, the core disciples of Five Virtuous Sect still decided to not attack Tang Li Xue carelessly and only used ropes to bind Tang Li Xue's [Water Mirage] clones.
When Tang Li Xue's [Water Mirage] clones were bound by the treasured ropes from core disciples of Five Virtuous Sect, they burst like a bubble and turned into the water.
"All of them are fakes?! Where is the real one?" One of the core disciples from the Oracle Mountain Sect exclaimed in surprise.
"Do not need to worry! No matter where she runs to, we can track her down easily as long as she is still holding Senior Sister Meng's leather pouch that contains our ancient jade emblems!" The young girl from White Crane Sect took out Bagua Compass from her spatial ring and led the other core disciples to chase after Tang Li Xue again.
Meanwhile, Tang Li Xue, who already ran quite far from the core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sect, managed to arrive at the long jade staircase.
The long staircase seems to be made from a material similar to white jade, and it looked really extravagant and majestic.
