Chapter 423 Give a Hand!
The chasing game between Tang Li Xue and the core disciples of Five Virtuous Sect was actually really comical since their speed was very slow like the racing game between snails, even the walking baby might be even faster than them now.
If anyone saw them without knowing or feeling the immense pressure from the staircase, they would certainly laugh mockingly at them.
Tang Li Xue finally could no longer move all of her limbs after taking 142 steps, and she could only lie down limply on the stair while breathing heavily.
The pressure from the staircase was already too unbearable for her to handle, and she almost got crushed by the immense pressure.
Her internal organs almost fell apart because of it, and some of them were already injured quite badly right now.
The correct way to pass this staircase trial, according to the information from the core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sect, was to take 5 to 10 steps first and then let their bodies adapted to the pressure for a few hours.
They only need to repeat that process again and again until they reached the top. That process would temper their bodies, train their physical strength, and strengthen their will. All of those would make the foundation of their cultivation became much more solid than before.
What Tang Li Xue had done right now by quickly climb to 142 steps at once was actually very harmful to herself, and the probability of getting killed by the immense pressure was exceedingly high.
The core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sect actually never thought that Tang Li Xue could climb this far at once before. They estimated that Tang Li Xue could only climb to 50 to 60 steps before she would succumb to the pressure and could no longer be able to move.
But all of those were no longer important since the core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sect finally managed to catch up to Tang Li Xue.
"Hehehe… Huff… Finally… Huff… We caught you~! Huff… Wait… Huff… until we… Huff… rest for a while… Huff… before we… Huff… kick you down from… Huff… here…" One of the young girls from White Crane Sect murmured resentfully while kept panting crazily.
Tang Li Xue gnashed her teeth and mustered all of her strength to force herself to move, but she could only make her limbs twitches slightly.
'Is this it for me? Am I fated to die here? There is no way, right? Is there still something I can do?! Something like... Sigh... It seems I have no way other than entering [Perfect Assimilation] Mode with Phoenix of Pride, right? I wonder if I can withstand this overwhelming pressure and reach the Peak of Cang Yang Mountain after entering [Perfect Assimilation] Mode with Phoenix of Pride...' Tang Li Xue thought in her mind.
Of course, she would never enter [Perfect Assimilation] Mode with Phoenix of Pride just like that.
She decided to wait until the core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sect approached her before entered [Perfect Assimilation] Mode with Phoenix of Pride and caught the core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sect off guard by exploding them to nothingness with her Flame of Pride.
But Tang Li Xue clearly had forgotten someone other than herself here who could help her out from this situation.
Little Loki sat in a relaxed manner beside Tang Li Xue, and it seemed that Little Loki was not affected by the pressure from the staircase even one bit.
Little Loki could already guess what Tang Li Xue had planned in her mind from the resolute glint that flashed in her eyes.
Little Loki rolled its third eye in disappointment. It could actually help Tang Li Xue anytime but decided to not do it because it wanted Tang Li Xue to quickly grow stronger.
However, Little Loki also did not want Tang Li Xue to expose her [Perfect Assimilation] Mode with Phoenix of Pride to the core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sect yet.
Many people already watched Tang Li Xue used her Flame of Pride in Tang Feng City before, but only two people realized that Tang Li Xue's deep-blue Flame of Pride was a high-ranking flame spirit, Crown Prince Feng and Elder Yang (Nascent Soul Stage elders were only secretly protecting Elder Yang from afar, so they only knew that Tang Li Xue kicked Elder Yang at that time).
Crown Prince Feng has already died, and Elder Yang actually has some deep connection with Tang Li Xue, so he would not spread the news that Tang Li Xue actually has assimilated with a high-ranking flame spirit.
If more people had seen her using Flame of Pride, the probability that more people would recognize it as the high-ranking flame spirit would increase too.
The worst case was that the news got spread, and Tang Li Xue would be targeted by many cultivators because of her Flame of Pride.
The reason for that was because the high-ranking flame spirit was too much more valuable than any high-ranking elemental spirit!
From alchemist, refiner, blacksmith, crafter, chef, and so on, which sub-profession did not use flame?!
By possessing the high-ranking flame spirit, their ability in their respective sub-profession would certainly increase dramatically!
Also, clash head-on to the more than thirty core disciples of Five Virtuous Sect with cultivation much higher than her here was completely unwise.
In the end, Little Loki decided to give Tang Li Xue a little bit of help.
Little Loki jumped onto Tang Li Xue's chest and slowly opened its always closed pair of terrifying dark eyes a bit.
Little Loki only opened it a bit, but it was already more than enough to negate the effect of the staircase around Tang Li Xue!
In that instant, Tang Li Xue felt her entire body and limbs were extremely comfortable.
The air finally could fill her lungs, and her blood could flow freely in her veins. Different from before that she could hardly breathe as if she was squashed by a big mountain, and even her blood had so much difficulty at flowing in her veins.
Tang Li Xue suddenly stood up and took a deep breath of fresh air that was filled with dense spiritual energy.
But she was also raising her guard to the maximum because she was afraid that the core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sect would be freed from the tremendous pressure as well, just like her.
Of course, it was only Tang Li Xue's blind guess since there was no way Little Loki would help the core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sect to lift the heavy pressure on them too.
Tang Li Xue quickly took a few steps back to keep her distance from the core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sect that was already so close to her.
The core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sect were so surprised when Tang Li Xue could suddenly move freely as if she was completely unaffected by the heavy pressure from the staircase.
They widened their eyes and dropped their jaws in shock, but they still could not shout, ask, or curse Tang Li Xue, since they were still panting heavily because of extreme exhaustion.
Tang Li Xue sighed in relief after she realized that all core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sect were still affected by the heavy pressure from the staircase and still could not move freely like her.
She started to ponder for a while about the reason why the pressure from the staircase could no longer affect her all of a sudden.
It did not take long for Tang Li Xue to guess that Little Loki was the one who helped her to negate the pressure effect from the staircase.
Tang Li Xue happily lifted Little Loki in delight and rained it with kisses. She also gave Little Loki several Uncommon-Grade beast cores as snacks while said her thanks to it.
After pleasing Little Loki, Tang Li Xue stared at the core disciples of the Five Virtue Sects who were still breathing hard and could barely even move their limbs.
After pleasing Little Loki, Tang Li Xue stared at the core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sect that were still panting heavily and could hardly even move their limbs.
Tang Li Xue grinned mischievously at them and began to walk to approach them.
The young girls from the White Crane Sect and the core disciples from Oracle Mountain Sect started to palpitate in fear and horror.
Imagine if you were in a place where you could hardly move your body while your enemy could move freely without any restriction... your enemy could torture, grill, strip, or even kill you according to her will.
That was what the core disciples of the White Crane Sect and Oracle Mountain Sect felt right now!
Tang Li Xue pointed her index finger to one of the female core disciples and shouted with a smug tone: "You! Yes, you there! You said you will kick me down from this staircase, right? Now, I will let you feel it first with your own body!"
"I… Huff… I am not… Huff…" The female core disciple from White Crane Sect tried to deny it, but Tang Li Xue already mercilessly kicked her abdomen without waiting for her to finish her words.
"AAAAHHHHHHH~!!!" The female core disciple from White Crane Sect shouted out loud in pain and fright.
Her body flew backward like a cannonball, then crashed heavily onto the lower rung.
She was spurting a few mouthfuls of blood in that instant, but it did not stop until that!
Her body started to roll down the staircase...
BANG... BANG... BANG... BANG... BANG...
Her body fell heavily on each rung because of the immense pressure effect from the staircase and left a long trail of blood on the staircase.
Tang Li Xue's lips twitched a bit in shock. She never thought that the immense pressure effect from the staircase would make the fall damage became much more lethal.
'Err… Am I too cruel to her? Actually, I only want to teach her a lesson, but that fall is really dangerous, and it can even kill her, right? Err… I actually planned to kick them down one by one from this staircase, but what if I accidentally kill all of them… Sigh... It is really not easy to be a good person... I mean a good fox...' Tang Li Xue groaned in her mind.
Although Tang Li Xue has an upper hand right now, but it did not mean that she would always have an upper hand later.
If she decided to spare these core disciples of Five Virtuous Sect here right now, but what if she met again with them inside Inheritance Ground Tablet, would they spare her too, just like how she spared them?
Tang Li Xue even afraid if these core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sect would ask the elders from their sect, that still waited outside of Cang Yang Mountain right now, to catch or kill her after she went out from Inheritance Ground Tablet one month later!
