Chapter 441 Overpowered Gate Guardian!
"I know that there is no shortcut to becoming stronger, but Fox Hunting Festival is a big chance for every fox to grow stronger, so I am afraid Bing Shui will get much stronger after she enters there. So much stronger… that I cannot catch up to her again…" Bing Yi revealed her fear and anxiety to Instructor Mei Lan honestly.
Instructor Mei Lan dropped her jaw in disbelief, and she almost dropped the teacup in her grasp when she heard Bing Yi's worry.
Luckily, she has not drunk the tea in her cup yet, or she might already spurt it out onto Bing Yi's face.
Instructor Mei Lan smirked at Bing Yi's naive way of thinking and started to rebuke her: "Kid, you really like to think too much, don't you? What kind of event do you think the Fox Hunting Festival is? Charity event from the higher-ups to make all of you, the younger generation foxes, grow stronger? HELL NO!"
"That is the real bloody battlefield replication prepared for all of you, the younger generation foxes that living your every day in peace, to taste the true war!"
"Sigh... Bingbing, do you know how many foxes from our Lightwind Continent Branch participate in Fox Hunting Festival? Hundreds!"
"And... you should already know that we are one of the farthest continents from Central Continent, so the density of the spiritual energy in our continent is the lowest, which made all of the cultivators and beasts here much harder to have cultivation breakthrough or evolve to the higher rank."
"In short, our quota is also affected because of it... and we only have the least participant quota among the other continents."
"Just so you know, your sister's team might be one of the elite teams, but they do not even enter the top 100 in the elite team rank. Her team is only one of the middle ranks."
"Do not need to mention middle ranks team like your sister's team, even the strongest top 10 elite teams from our Lightwind Continent Branch need to be really careful or they might get crushed by any random team from Central Continent."
Instructor Mei Lan concluded her scolding session and sipped the teacup in her grasp.
It was true that countless resources would appear in Hunting Fox Festival, but countless foxes from different continents would compete and fight over them.
The weaker foxes would just fall before they could even grab or do anything in the Foxes Hunting Festival.
While the stronger foxes would probably manage to claim some resources until they fell under the claws of the strongest foxes.
To sum it all up, all of the higher-ups from Myriad Foxes Academy of Lightwind Continent Branch, including Instructor Mei Lan herself, never put their hopes in newbie groups like Tang Li Xue's group or middle-rank elite groups like Bing Shui's group.
The reason the higher-ups let them participate in Foxes Hunting Festival was no more than to gain more experience and to open their eyes to see the true abilities of the real elite foxes.
Of course, it was still not that easy… Since they must also have strong background support!
Tang Li Xue's group has Instructor Mei Lan's support, while Bing Shui's group has Zi Yan's support. If not for that, it would be impossible for them to participate in the Foxes Hunting Festival.
"I understand, Instructor Lan… But I still want to get much stronger with faster way! Is there really no other way for that?" Bing Yi asked Instructor Mei Lan again with a tone filled with stubbornness.
Instructor Mei Lan stared at Bing Yi's unyielding expression and sighed, but she did not immediately refuse Bing Yi's request this time.
Instructor Mei Lan closed her eyes to think of some ways while her slender finger rhythmically tapped the tea table.
Just when Bing Yi almost ran out of patience and wanted to say something to urge Instructor Mei Lan again, Instructor Mei Lan suddenly raised her hand and asked with a stern tone: "I have one way to make you much stronger in a short time, BUT… your chance of dying will be as high as 90%. Do you still dare to try it?"
Bing Yi's expression turned solemn, but she nodded her head without any hesitation.
After that, Instructor Mei Lan threw Bing Yi into the scorching cave, then sealed its entrance completely with several confinement arrays.
Of course, Instructor Mei Lan did not forget to give Bing Yi a way out.
Instructor Mei Lan gave Bing Yi a stone badge and told Bing Yi to crush it if she could not hold on anymore, then she would automatically be thrown out from the cave.
However, Bing Yi did not appreciate it at all. She immediately threw the stone badge into her space pouch after she entered the cave and decided to never use it even if she died.
Bing Yi did not have any intention of giving up halfway. She would succeed or die while doing it!
Even right now, when her life was still tethering between life and death, Bing Yi still did not have any intention to crush the stone tablet and giving up halfway.
'Bing… Shui… I will… surely have… my revenge…'
While Hei Yinghao and Bing Yi were currently undergoing their respective hellish training, Tang Li Xue also did not remain idle.
She already proceeded deeper into the maze and met with the other strange ghostly creatures other than the [Two-Headed Black Dogs].
Currently, Tang Li Xue had already faced more than twenty [Death Wraith] with the appearance like the grim reaper in the next room after the great hall and more than thirty [Flying Head Ghosts] in the last room.
Of course, she already defeated all of them and sucked them into her [Scepter of Disaster].
Although, Tang Li Xue still did not know the way to tame them yet right now, but she was really sure that she could tame all of them sooner or later.
After taking some rest to feed Little Loki with Beast Cores and recover herself from all the wounds and exhaustion, she decided to continue on her way.
Her armies of death already dwindled again and left with only thirty-something.
It was so pitiful that Tang Li Xue almost wanted to cry and mourn for their sacrifice.
Tang Li Xue and her armies of death vigilantly walked on the long corridor.
She was already so sure that there would be many dangerous traps here and prepared herself to face them, but contrary to her expectation, there was nothing strange that happened in this long corridor.
When Tang Li Xue and her armies of death walked past the long corridor, they entered a big circular hall.
"This place is... a colosseum?" Tang Li Xue tilted her head and muttered in confusion.
Then suddenly, the long corridor behind them was blocked by a thick crystal wall.
"Tsk! This kind of old trick again... I wonder what kind of creature would jump out this time." Tang Li Xue clicked her tongue in displeasure.
Rumble... Rumble... Rumble...Rumble...
The entire colosseum shook violently all of a sudden as the giant gate across the colosseum started to open upward like a giant beast's mouth.
A pair of big red eyes were shining in the darkness behind that giant gate…
Tang Li Xue quickly covered her ears to withstand the roaring sound, but she still felt dizzy and nauseous because of it.
If the roaring sound was coming from the beast, Tang Li Xue certainly has some confidence in withstanding it since she already sparred against Instructor Mei Lan so many times before.
But this roaring sound was really strange. It was like the mixed sound between the friction of many metals, beast roar, and ghost screeching.
Even Tang Li Xue still could not guess what kind of creature lurking in that darkness even after she heard its roaring sound.
BOOOM… BOOOM… BOOOM… BOOOM… BOOOM…
The giant creature started to slowly walk out from the darkness.
Each step it took made the colosseum ground trembled violently.
Tang Li Xue's heart palpitated with mixed fear and anticipation as she held the [Scepter of Disaster] in her grasp tighter.
Tang Li Xue widened her eyes in surprise and disbelief when she saw the true form of that creature and muttered: "What kind of creature is that?!"
The creature was actually a gigantic bone dragon... or it might be one of the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard's elders from Lizard Clan, but that was not the weird part.
What made Tang Li Xue amazed was the entire body of a gigantic bone dragon covered with the metallic sheen and countless sharp blades.
It was like the mecha machine that Tang Li Xue saw in anime in her previous life.
The consequence would simply unimaginable if Tang Li Xue's fragile-looking body was bumped by that metallic body filled with sharp blades. Her body would certainly shred to tiny pieces in an instant.
Just like what Tang Li Xue has predicted just now, the gigantic metal bone dragon swiftly sprinted toward Tang Li Xue without any fear!
"Oh no! Damn it, this is bad! Everyone disperses! Spread around! No, they are not fast enough... Just come back to the [Scepter of Disaster]!" Tang Li Xue started to panic as she gave a series of orders to her armies of death.
Unfortunately, Tang Li Xue was still one step too slow...
The gigantic metal bone dragon tore apart all of her remaining armies of death like a sharp blade cut through a bunch of rag clothes in one straight move.
Tang Li Xue quickly used [Supreme Speed Sword Style] in that instant right before the gigantic metal bone dragon almost crashed onto her, and her slender figure vanished in an instant as she flashed to the other corner of the colosseum.
"It should be okay, right...? My armies should not die because of physical strike or blades." Tang Li Xue tried to comfort herself.
