Chapter 447 The Worst Situation for Tang Li Xue!
Chapter 447 The Worst Situation for Tang Li Xue!
Unfortunately, the Phoenix of Pride in Tang Li Xue's Dantian was still fast asleep despite Tang Li Xue's plea for it to wake up and help her now.
The source of Purple Ghost Flame contained an enormous amount of flame elemental energy after it accumulated for such a very long period of time since the gigantic metal bone dragon fell asleep all this time in the Crystal Palace Tomb.
Even for the Phoenix of Pride, it would still need at least two weeks to one month to completely digest the source of Purple Ghost Flame and improved itself to become a lot more powerful.
But it also means Tang Li Xue could probably no longer enter [Perfect Assimilation Mode] with her Phoenix of Pride until she was kicked out from this Inheritance Ground Tablet later.
This was clearly another big disadvantage for Tang Li Xue in this Inheritance Ground Tablet since her Beast Cultivation System already got sealed along with all of her skills and divine abilities.
It seems Tang Li Xue could only rely on her own cultivation and martial arts from now on as long as she was still in this Inheritance Ground Tablet.
Tang Li Xue was currently still on her knees since her body still felt really weak because her wound was too heavy.
However, Tang Li Xue already took an opportunity when she previously spoke with Tian Jian to secretly took out some [Talisman of Regeneration +3] from her space pouch and used it to heal herself.
But Tang Li Xue's [Talisman of Regeneration +3] was the type that heals the wounds over time and not in an instant, so it would at least need a few minutes for Tang Li Xue's wounds to feel better after she used the [Talisman of Regeneration +3] on herself.
Of course, Tian Jian was not patient enough to wait a few minutes for Tang Li Xue to recover her wounds!
Tian Jian already raised the treasured black sword in his grasp and prepared to attack once again, but his target was not Tang Li Xue this time!
Tian Jian was suddenly dashing toward the cute-looking male baby that was currently still sitting beside Little Loki and thrust his treasured black sword toward the male baby again.
"Damn it, how dare you...?! Stop there!" Tang Li Xue shouted with an anxious tone mixed with an angry tone as she saw Tian Jian started attacking the male baby again.
Tang Li Xue quickly jumped forward to stand up and sprint toward the male baby to protect him.
Unfortunately, her heavy wounds were still not recovered enough even with the effect from her [Talisman of Regeneration +3], and it made her body still feel weak, so Tang Li Xue stumbled forward instead because of it after she jumped forward.
Tang Li Xue fell onto the tiled floor right now, and she could only watch helplessly as Tian Jian stabbed his treasured black sword toward the neck of the cute-looking male baby.
Just when the tip of Tian Jian's treasured black sword was only a few inches away from the male baby's defenseless neck, and Tang Li Xue could only close her eyes in her powerlessness, but Little Loki suddenly patted the male baby's shoulder with its tiny paw at the last moment.
Little Loki's expression was filled with displeasure and disgust when it touched the male baby's shoulder.
It seemed Little Loki, with its identity as one of the four Evil Fiend Beasts, really did not like to touch or help other creatures than Tang Li Xue.
Although Little Loki was really unwilling to help the cute-looking male baby, but it still chose to comply with Tang Li Xue's request.
When Tian Jian almost stabbed the male baby's neck, Little Loki activated its [Instant Teleportation], the skill it managed to get after consuming the [Amulet of Teleportation] from Teacher Li Wei before, and Little Loki also brought the male baby with it.
Both Little Loki and the cute-looking male baby instantly teleported to the other farthest corner from this vast room.
Tian Jian's treasured black sword stabbed so deeply onto the tiled floor where the male baby had sat before Little Loki brought him away with its [Instant Teleportation].
Tian Jian's powerful stab even managed to instantly split several hard tiles in front of him. If Tian Jian's lethal sword thrust managed to strike the male baby's neck, there was no doubt that the male baby would die in an instant without any time to feel pain.
Tang Li Xue sighed in relief when she saw that Little Loki had managed to save the male baby at the most critical moment.
Tang Li Xue took a deep breath to ease the pain from her heavy wound as she tried to stand up again.
But she still staggered a bit when she stood up, and she even coughed out another few mouthfuls of blood.
Meanwhile, Tian Jian frowned deeply in displeasure since he failed to kill the male baby for the second time.
Tian Jian turned around to face Little Loki and the male baby at the farthest corner of this vast room, and he seemed to want to attack them again.
However, Tang Li Xue could already read Tian Jian's intention from his stare, and she immediately raised the [Scepter of Disaster] in her grasp, then charged toward Tian Jian to stop him from attacking Little Loki and the male baby.
"It is only a futile effort. You are still far from my match." Tian Jian shook his head and said to Tang Li Xue.
"So what?! It is not like you will let me out from this crystal palace tomb even if I am not your match or lost to you, right?" Tang Li Xue replied with a tone filled with anger and resentment.
Tang Li Xue condensed [Paragon Sword Technique]'s sharpest sword intent and made it enveloped the [Scepter of Disaster] in her grasp once again to make it as sharp as a treasured sword.
Then Tang Li Xue suddenly jumped upward and slashed the [Scepter of Disaster] in her grasp vertically toward Tian Jian's head from above.
Unfortunately for Tang Li Xue, Tian Jian's overall swordsmanship was much more skillful than her, who only learned all of her sword techniques about a week ago in the second trial.
With one single heavy sweep of his treasured black sword, Tian Jian managed to easily parry Tang Li Xue's vertical slash to his head.
Tang Li Xue took a few steps back because of how powerful Tian Jian's sweep was, and each of her steps even left a deep footprint on the tiled floor.
She gritted her teeth to resist the pain from his heavy wound that almost got healed thanks to her [Talisman of Regeneration +3], but it tore open again because of the violent impact of her fight against Tian Jian.
Tian Jian approached Tang Li Xue and swung his treasured black sword rapidly toward her.
But Tang Li Xue quickly held her [Scepter of Disaster] with both of her hands and put all of her concentration on trying to block all of Tian Jian's rapid strikes.
CLANK... CLANK... CLANK... CLANK... CLANK...
Each of Tian Jian's strikes was as heavy as a cannon shot.
Even both of Tang Li Xue's palms started to bleed profusely, and her heavy wounds got worsened when she was only blocking the rapid strikes from Tian Jian.
Tian Jian kept retreating again and again as she blocked Tian Jian's rapid strikes and fresh blood started to flow out from the heavy wound on her chest.
After Tang Li Xue blocked all of Tian Jian's rapid strikes, she tried to stab at Tian Jian again with the [Scepter of Disaster] in her grasp.
However, Tian Jian could easily parry or avoid all of Tang Li Xue's attacks, and he could even counterattack Tang Li Xue easily every time.
After traded strikes several times, Tang Li Xue only fell more and more to disadvantage since Tian Jian's swordsmanship was much more superior to her, even Tian Jian's strength and speed were also much more superior to her.
In short, Tang Li Xue would never be able to win against Tian Jian unless a miracle happens soon before Tang Li Xue got killed by Tian Jian.
Meanwhile, Little Loki frowned even deeper in worry when it saw Tang Li Xue fell into a more disadvantaged situation.
From Tang Li Xue's heavy wound and profuse bleeding, Little Loki immediately knew that it must help Tang Li Xue soon or Tang Li Xue would certainly lose her life later.
Little Loki finally wanted to make its move to help Tang Li Xue, but before that, Little Loki took a glance at the cute-looking male baby with an eye filled with suspicion again.
The cute-looking male baby looked very innocent and oblivious to everything, and that male baby was currently dozing in sleepiness while sucking his little thumb.
The scenes where Tian Jian tried to kill the male baby several times despite Tian Jian himself could defeat Tang Li Xue quickly flashed in Little Loki's mind.
After pondering for a few moments in hesitation, Little Loki finally decided to do something to the male baby first before it would help Tang Li Xue to fight against Tian Jian.
Tang Li Xue held her [Scepter of Disaster] slanted in front of her, and she managed to block another heavy slash from Tian Jian.
But she was thrown off backward again until she crashed heavily onto the wall behind her.
Tang Li Xue's slender body was even stuck quite deep on the wall.
Tang Li Xue spurted out several mouthfuls of blood, and she groaned in pain as her heavy wound got a lot worsened.
Tian Jian already charged swiftly toward Tang Li Xue again.
It seems Tian Jian wanted to deal Tang Li Xue a finishing blow to take her life without any shred of mercy.
[Heaven Sword Technique], Rainbow Cutter!
The treasured black sword in Tian Jian's grasp suddenly vanished for the second time, along with both of his hands that held his treasured black sword.
