Chapter 454 So Many Legendary Swords!
"Okay, that is all information that I can give to you. As for how you can pick the correct sword to get that inheritance, I cannot help you with it. It is all entirely dependent on your luck. Remember, you can only pick one sword, so choose carefully. Go, Young Fated One! I can only pray for you to have good luck." The Tomb Owner's Will encouraged Tang Li Xue and went silent again.
"Ehhhh~! At least give me a few clues about the correct sword for that inheritance! Something like the pattern on the sword, the sword's color, and so on. Please~! Heeeiii~!" Tang Li Xue tried to call the Tomb Owner's Will with a coquettish tone that could melt the heart of any male.
Unfortunately, the Tomb Owner's Will was only a strand of will from the late real tomb owner, so he certainly could not be seduced.
It seems the Tomb Owner's Will did not want to bother Tang Li Xue when she was choosing the sword, so he did not reply to Tang Li Xue anymore no matter how loud Tang Li Xue called him.
Tang Li Xue clicked her tongue in dissatisfaction.
Since she had no choice other than to pick the sword randomly, she decided to take her time and began to walk around the vast room while examining the sword one by one.
This vast room was several times larger than a baseball stadium, so there were probably several hundred or might even more than one thousand swords here.
Moreover, each sword was different from another.
No sword looked identical to the other sword.
Tang Li Xue was surprised after she examined a few swords around her.
She realized that all of the swords here were actually not simple at all.
Most of them could even be compared with the treasures in Heavenly Treasure Rank if only the power to kill the enemies that count.
When Tang Li Xue approached a blood-colored sword with a black hilt, it let out an oppressing aura that even made Tang Li Xue felt dreadful and uncomfortable.
Even the blood inside Tang Li Xue's body started to churning, and she almost coughed out a mouthful of blood.
Tang Li Xue immediately decided to stay away from that sword and walked in another direction.
After that, Tang Li Xue met many other bizarre and terrifying swords, and each one of them was so extraordinary that Tang Li Xue made Tang Li Xue tempted to pick any of them…
There was a golden sword that radiating the majestic aura. When Tang Li Xue first saw it, she suddenly had an urge to kneel as if she met with an absolute king.
Tang Li Xue shook her head to reject the urge to kneel and continue to walk.
There was also a purple-edged sword that emitting the intense demonic aura. When Tang Li Xue tried to approach it and the purple light from the sword reflected in her topaz blue eyes, she suddenly felt a strong impulse to slaughter every living thing she ever knew or saw.
Thankfully, Tang Li Xue's spirit stat was already quite high, so she could still barely resist the effect of demonic aura from the purple-edged sword and quickly kept her distance from it.
There was even a gigantic ancient-looking sword that several tens of meters tall at the center of the vast room. The gigantic ancient-looking sword was shrouded with several thick chains.
Tang Li Xue did not felt anything special from this gigantic ancient sword after she examined and touched it for about ten minutes, so she decided to just ignore it since she could not wield it anyway even if she decided to take it.
After walking around the room for more than one hour, Tang Li Xue accidentally saw an old rusted sword at the right corner of the vast room.
The color of this sword was black, and it was already full of rust, but strangely, it gave Tang Li Xue a sense of familiarity when she saw it.
The tip was already broken. Even this sword's edge was already dull and jagged as if it already used to fight in countless battles before.
There was nothing worth noticing from this broken sword, and it looked like a piece of junk that no one would want.
In fact, Tang Li Xue would not even waste her time taking a glance at it if she did not feel a sense of familiarity from this black rusted sword.
"This sword... seems a bit familiar to me... Hmm... I wonder where I saw it before." Tang Li Xue murmured as she tapped her slender finger onto her chin and started to ponder.
After a few moments, Tang Li Xue could not recall anything about this black rusted sword, so she decided to just ignore it and began to look at another sword, but before she could do that...
Little Loki suddenly meowed while tapped its tiny soft paw onto Tang Li Xue's shoulder.
"Eh? Little Loki? What's wrong? Do you want to take a pee or poop? Uhhh... But there is no restroom here..." Tang Li Xue asked Little Loki as she took Little Loki from her shoulder and hugged it while gently patted its tiny furry head.
"Nyan... Nyaan~!" Little Loki shook its tiny furry head to deny it.
It seems that was not what Little Loki was trying to tell Tang Li Xue.
Little Loki pointed its little paw to the rusted black sword, and then it used both of its little paws to pull down both of its furry cheeks to imitate a cold-looking expression.
Tang Li Xue still felt confused about what Little Loki was trying to tell her for a few moments, but her topaz blue eyes shone brighter all of a sudden.
"AH~!!! I get it now~! That cold expression is... Tian Jian's expression! That is right! This rusted black sword is actually Tian Jian's black treasured sword!" Tang Li Xue shouted in surprise, and she immediately inspected the rusted black sword more closely to confirm her guess.
It was not strange that Tang Li Xue almost could not remember this rusted black sword since the black treasured sword used by Tian Jian in the previous fourth trial looked so sharp and precious as if it was made from the highest quality black jade while this current rusted black sword looked so... pathetic beyond belief.
"But why was a sword that was already covered in rust and broken like this still placed here where all of the important inheritances were gathered? Hmmm... Something smells fishy here..." Tang Li Xue muttered softly while biting her pink lips and pondering deeply.
"According to the Tian Jian's model I faced in the fourth trial, this rusted black sword should be the sword used by Heavenly Sword Immortal when he is still young. So, he should still have held some attachment to this rusted black sword in the last moment of his life." Tang Li Xue started to unconsciously murmur her deduction.
"In short, I think there is some small chance that he might hide his most precious inheritance behind this rusted black sword... Tsk, so now... Should I choose to gamble everything and pick this rusted black sword, or should I just pick any other random powerful sword?" Tang Li Xue concluded while frowned in hesitation as she kept staring at the rusted black sword as if she wanted to find anything strange at it.
It could be said if Tang Li Xue chose to pick this rusted black sword, and it turned out that this rusted black sword was nothing more than a piece of rusted junk, then it means Tang Li Xue had wasted so much of her time and effort to pass the five trials for nothing.
Of course, she could also choose any other random powerful sword.
There were so many powerful treasured swords here after all.
From Golden Emperor Sword, Silver Saint Sword, Demonic Purple Sword, Gravity Stone Sword, and many more... All of them were so precious, and any one of them was more than enough to make any cultivators go crazy with greed.
Unfortunately, Tang Li Xue still did not felt interested in sword art even until this point after she learned some sword martial art techniques... So, she decided to take a gamble by picking the rusted black sword in the end.
She thought she probably might rarely use them again after she got out from this Inheritance Ground Tablet and got back all of her divine abilities and skills...
Moreover, she must get much stronger quickly to participate in Fox Hunting Festival, and she certainly could not use any of her martial arts in Fox Hunting Festival later.
"All right, I choose this sword!" Tang Li Xue shouted out loud as she grasped the hilt of the rusted black sword tightly and pulled it out from the ground.
But when she did that, the rusted black sword in her grasp started to be filled with cracks as if it would shatter at any moment.
Tang Li Xue's pink lips twitched violently in regret. She began to doubt if her choice was really correct or not.
"That rusted sword? Are you really sure that you will choose that sword?" The Tomb Owner's Will asked Tang Li Xue with a tone filled with surprise and disbelief.
"I....." Tang Li Xue paused her words, and she really hesitated right now.
Tang Li Xue took a deep breath and gritted her teeth while steeled her resolve, then continued: "Yes, I will choose this sword!"
CRACK... CRACK... CRACK... CRACK... CRACK...
After Tang Li Xue shouted out her choice, the rusted black sword in her grasp started to crumble apart bit by bit.
