Chapter 450 The Last Trial... Begin!
Chapter 450 The Last Trial... Begin!
Tang Li Xue halted her movement to push open the blue gate when she heard the archaic voice from the will of the tomb owner requested her to wait.
Tang Li Xue cunningly squinted her topaz blue eyes as she curved her pink lips upward a bit.
"Wait for a minute? Why? Do you want to say something to persuade me? Just so you know, I will never take any of your trials! It is okay if you want to give the inheritance for free to me right now. After all, I already passed four of your trials. But if you want me to take that last trial, then I am sorry... I still cherish my life very much! No matter how good your inheritance is, my life is still the most important for me." Tang Li Xue declared to the tomb owner's will.
'Humph~! I still have the OP system from Uncle Sun anyway. Who cares about your lame inheritance?! Well, I still want it a bit... But I believe that I will certainly surpass your Immortal Rank and reach Deity Rank sooner or later with my OP system. At that time, I swear I will turn your Crystal Palace Tomb upside down!' Tang Li Xue added in her mind.
The tomb owner's will fell silent for a few moments as if he was considering something.
After a few moments, the will of the tomb owner replied to Tang Li Xue: "I cannot give you the inheritance if you do not pass the last trial yet. That is something beyond what my authority can do."
"All right, so there is nothing more we can discuss. Goodbye!" Tang Li Xue angrily shouted as she tried to push open the blue gate again.
"Wait! But I can promise to you that the last trial is not dangerous at all!" The Tomb Owner's Will quickly blurted to Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue halted her movement again and turned around, then asked with a skeptical tone: "Not dangerous at all? Really?"
"Yes, the last trial is not life-threatening since it is the trial to test... your comprehension." The Tomb Owner's Will told Tang Li Xue about the last trial, but his tone was filled with reluctance.
It seems the Tomb Owner's Will actually did not want to leak it to Tang Li Xue that the last trial did not have any danger at all.
Tang Li Xue frowned a bit since she still felt doubtful at the words from the Tomb Owner's Will.
'I still wonder why do you decide to tell me about this? From your previous trials and actions, you seem to make it difficult for me, and I even almost lost my life several times. It is as if you do not want me... or maybe even anyone to take your inheritance." Tang Li Xue tried to probe the Tomb Owner's Will.
Tang Li Xue really did not want to die yet, so she must take every step carefully!
Moreover, she was currently not talking to the ordinary person right now, but the strand of will from the Immortal Ranked Cultivator.
The Immortal Ranked Cultivator already lived for many centuries or even several millenniums, so he clearly has much more experience and knowledge than Tang Li Xue. He was surely much smarter than her too.
However, Tang Li Xue already read too many novels where the ancient cultivator's soul only used their inheritance to bait many cultivators, but that ancient cultivator's soul was actually plotting to take over the body of the strongest living cultivator.
So, she was really careful about taking her next decision right now.
"Make it difficult for you?! I do not want anyone to take the inheritance?! I understand... so, the level of all the trials is too hard for you. Sigh..." The Tomb Owner's Will sounded shocked, and he sighed in disappointment.
Before Tang Li Xue has any chance to say anything, the Tomb Owner's Will added again with a depressed tone: "As I already expected, the level of cultivators in this backward continent is too low. The trial's difficulty set by my living self is not high. It is actually still below average at best when it is put on the Central Continent."
"Sigh... Such a huge disappointment, since my inheritance can even make any other Immortal Ranked Cultivators go crazy with greed if it is put on the Central Continent." The Tomb Owner's Will muttered softly.
Tang Li Xue's soft supple ears twitched a little bit when she heard the last sentence from Tomb Owner's Will.
"Eh, what? What did you say just now? Your inheritance can even make any other Immortal Ranked Cultivators go crazy with greed?!" Tang Li Xue asked with a tone filled with curiosity as her topaz blue eyes were glittering brightly like a pair of blue stars.
"But wait a minute... There is something strange here... if your inheritance is that great, then why don't you just put your inheritance at Central Continent? I bet there are much better geniuses there to inherit your inheritance compared to this Lightwind Continent. I am quite sure they can pass all of your dangerous trials easily." Tang Li Xue felt there was something strange from the words of Tomb Owner's Will, so she decided to ask frankly.
"You are right. There are too many geniuses in Central Continent. Because of the extremely thick spiritual energy, many heavenly physiques are born there, such as Crimson Sun Physique, Frigid Ice Physique, Sword Emperor Physique, and so on. The potential from each of them is simply not something you can even imagine. My living self also has one heavenly physique called Heavenly Sword Physique, and it became my Immortal title in the end." Tomb Owner's Will agreed on what Tang Li Xue had said and even explained it further.
"I get it, then why did you put..." Tang Li Xue impatiently tried to ask again, but Tomb Owner's Will immediately cut her words halfway.
"No, you still do not get it. My living self actually comes from Central Continent, so I have many Immortal Ranked enemies there. But I am sorry since I cannot tell you more than this unless if you managed to pass the fifth trial and get the inheritance." After telling Tang Li Xue all of those, Tomb Owner's Will fell silent once more as if he was waiting for Tang Li Xue to make up her decision.
While Tang Li Xue digesting the information given by the Tomb Owner's Will, Tang Li Xue took several [Uncommon] Grade Beast Cores from her space pouch and slowly feed them to Little Loki in her embrace.
'I see... The inheritance from this Heavenly Sword Immortal is so great that it can attract the greed from Immortal Ranked Cultivators, and this Heavenly Sword Immortal seems to have many enemies at Central Continent.' Tang Li Xue deeply thought.
From those two clues, Tang Li Xue could conclude that Heavenly Sword Immortal managed to have a great fortuitous encounter and got something that could even attract the greed of many Immortal Ranked Cultivators!
It seems the great fortuitous encounter was too terrific that even the Heavenly Sword Immortal could only escape from Central Continent to avoid the chase from many other Immortal Ranked Cultivators and ran to this backward Lightwind Continent to hide.
'The inheritance of this Heavenly Sword Immortal is getting more and more interesting~! I am really curious about what kind of item can attract the greed of so many Immortal Ranked Cultivators.' Tang Li Xue beautifully smiled like a blooming white lotus when she thought about the inheritance.
After so many considerations, Tang Li Xue finally decided to take the fifth and the last trial.
Of course, she did not immediately undergo the last trial since her Qi and stamina were still completely exhausted. Even her body was also riddled with so many injuries, and some of them were fatal enough to make any normal human lost their life.
Tang Li Xue took out a bed from her space pouch and put the sleepy Little Loki on the bed.
Meanwhile, Tang Li Xue herself used several [Talisman of Regeneration +3] to slowly recover her wounds.
After one or two hours, all of her wounds already closed, and she almost completely recovered, but unfortunately, it will take a much longer time to recover her Qi and stamina since she did not have any items like [Talisman of Regeneration +3] to recover her Qi and stamina quickly.
Tang Li Xue sat on the lotus position on the bed and began to slowly recover her Qi and stamina.
It took a longer time than the previous trial for Tang Li Xue to go back to her optimal condition... about two or three days longer.
"Let's go, Little Loki!" Tang Li Xue said while smiled gently at Little Loki.
Little Loki jumped onto Tang Li Xue, and Tang Li Xue quickly caught it.
She hugged and teased Little Loki for a few moments before she put Litte Loki on her right shoulder, then walked toward the red gate.
"The trial of Comprehension, huh... I wonder what kind of trial is that." Tang Li Xue giggled while she pushed open the red gate.
After Tang Li Xue and Little Loki passed the red gate and stepped into the next trial's place, the red gate was disappeared in that instant like usual, and Tang Li Xue could no longer retreat from this last trial anymore unless she completed it.
Tang Li Xue thought that she would arrive in another room again, but she was completely wrong this time.
She had actually arrived at the long and dark cave instead!
"This is...?! Why the hell I am in this dark cave?! What should I comprehend in this kind of place?! Damn it! I have a bad feeling about this!" Tang Li Xue murmured as she frowned deeper.
