Chapter 460 - 460: Join Hands!
Tang Li Xue became more anxious when she saw Beiming Chu got closer and closer to her current location.
Moreover, Tang Li Xue did not dare to jump or move around recklessly from the tree trunk she currently stood right now since she was afraid that the giant carnivorous tree would notice her.
'Come on, man! Don't come here! Go away! You will die if you run toward here! Not only that, but you will also drag me to die with you too!' Tang Li Xue nervously shooed Beiming Chu away in her mind.
Who knew Beiming Chu shouted out loud toward Tang Li Xue's direction instead: "Come here and get me, you disgusting creature! Do you really think I am afraid of you?! I, Beiming Chu, The leader of core disciples from Oracle Mountain Sect, challenge you to fight one on one against me!"
'What the hell?! He is crazy! Did he lost his mind in fear and panic?!' Tang Li Xue became dumbfounded in an instant when she heard Beiming Chu's loud shout.
But Tang Li Xue immediately realized that Beiming Chu did that to attract the attention of the giant carnivorous tree.
He used himself as bait to distract this giant carnivorous tree, so it would not targeting his comrades first, and his comrades would have enough time to escape from here.
Tang Li Xue began to admire this Beiming Chu's courage and loyalty after she was aware of what was Beiming Chu trying to do.
Furthermore, Tang Li Xue also realized that Beiming Chu also has an exceptional observation skill since he could know the location of this giant carnivorous tree with so little clue in the middle of this white fog.
When Beiming Chu arrived near the giant carnivorous tree, he suddenly jumped while spun his body in mid-air.
His green-colored Qi poured out from his Dantian toward his right arm and accumulated onto the sword in his grasp until it was shining with green light, then he swung it with all of his strength.
[Air Burst Slash]!
The violent wind slash created from Beiming Chu's Qi heavily stroke the giant body of the carnivorous tree.
It seems Beiming Chu planned to cut down this giant carnivorous tree with his strongest single strike.
The giant body of the carnivorous tree shook greatly, and even Tang Li Xue, which stood silently on one of its branches, almost slipped and fell from the carnivorous tree, but she quickly leaned on the main trunk to stabilize herself.
The giant carnivorous tree roared out loud in pain and anger.
Beiming Chu's [Air Burst Slash] managed to cut the main trunk of the giant carnivorous tree quite deeply, but it failed to topple down the giant carnivorous tree.
Moreover, the deep-cut wound was rapidly recovering with a speed that could be seen with naked eyes.
Beiming Chu gnashed his teeth in anger and disappointment since his all-out attack failed to take down the giant carnivorous tree.
But his eyes swiftly scanned all parts of the carnivorous tree to find its weak point, and right at that time, he finally realized that there was a person currently stood at one of the carnivorous tree's branches.
Yes, Beiming Chu finally saw Tang Li Xue.
Thankfully, Tang Li Xue did not wear her fox mask anymore right now since it was shattered during her battle with the crystal puppets in the second trial to get the inheritance of Heavenly Sword Immortal before.
Beiming Chu did not recognize Tang Li Xue as the one who robbed his team's ancient jade emblems.
However... As usual, Tang Li Xue's incredible beauty mesmerized Beiming Chu the moment he saw her.
Just like the other people, Beiming Chu also fell into a daze as he could not take his eyes off Tang Li Xue.
While the angry carnivorous tree currently used many of its invisible vines to attack the dumbfounded Beiming Chu at once!
If this attack managed to strike the current defenseless Beiming Chu, there was no doubt that Beiming Chu would be killed in an instant!
When Tang Li Xue saw that, she reflexively shouted to warn Beiming Chu: "Watch out! Get down quickly!"
Tang Li Xue's shout immediately awoke Beiming Chu from his daze.
He reflexively followed Tang Li Xue's words and quickly squatted down.
The sharp invisible vines from the carnivorous tree struck the tree behind Beiming Chu instead, and the sharp invisible vines penetrated the thick tree trunk easily.
It could be easily imagined if they hit Beiming Chu's body, they would certainly make Beiming Chu's body filled with many holes!
Cold sweat poured out profusely from Tang Li Xue's forehead.
"Ah... I have really done it..." Tang Li Xue just realized that she accidentally did a stupid thing to warn Beiming Chu.
Even Little Loki rolled its third eye and facepalmed with its paw at Tang Li Xue's stupid act.
The carnivorous tree roared out loud in anger as it started to flail its branches violently to throw off Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue could not stand on the carnivorous tree's branch anymore in that kind of situation, so she decided to jump down quickly, but before her feet could land on the ground, several invisible vines suddenly shot out from the ground right below her.
Tang Li Xue's expression turned solemn as she took out her [Frost Swan Sword] from her space pouch.
Just when Tang Li Xue wanted to use her [Frost Swan Sword] to fend off the several invisible vines that attacking her, Beiming Chu suddenly flashed toward her and cut off those invisible vines first.
Tang Li Xue was surprised by Beiming Chu's action.
But Tang Li Xue did not lower her guard at all as her feet gracefully landed on the ground.
Beiming Chu sensed Tang Li Xue's suspicious glare, so he turned around to face Tang Li Xue and smiled at her.
Beiming Chu saluted at Tang Li Xue and said: "I am Bei Mingchu, the core disciple of Oracle Mountain Sect. Thank you very much for your help, young miss. If it were not for your warning, I would be dead by now. I, Beiming Chu, owe you my life."
Tang Li Xue's pink lips curved upward as she realized something and thought: 'I see... So, he does not recognize me. It makes sense since I do not wear any mask right now.'
"Oh, so you are Brother Beiming. I am Xue... Xue Chengmei. You do not need to thank me for..." Tang Li Xue saluted Beiming Chu too, but before she could finish her words...
"Watch out!" Beiming Chu suddenly shouted as he pushed Tang Li Xue away.
Several invisible vines shot out from the ground under their feet again, but Beiming Chu and Tang Li Xue managed to barely avoid it.
Those several invisible vines flew quickly toward Tang Li Xue!
Tang Li Xue raised the [Frost Swan Sword] in her grasp to block them.
Her upper body suddenly spun while her feet swiftly took a circular step, then she swung the [Frost Swan Sword] rapidly several times.
[Sword Art of Mystic Harmony], Repelling Spins!
BANG~!!! BANG~!!! BANG~!!! BANG~!!! BANG~!!!
Not only Tang Li Xue managed to cut all of the invisible vines that attacking her, but even her [Frost Swan Sword] froze all of the invisible vines that she cut to prevent them from regenerating.
Beiming Chu widened his eyes in amazement.
"Miss Xue is really amazing. I, Beiming Chu, really admire your strength and elegance." Beiming Chu praised Tang Li Xue with fascinated expression.
"Thank you, you are very strong too." Tang Li Xue smiled back and nodded at Beiming Chu, but her dazzling smile made Beiming Chu blushed instead.
Unfortunately, the carnivorous tree was not an idiot.
It immediately pulled its frozen vines until it smashed onto the ground and shattered.
After the frozen part shattered, its invisible vines started to grow crazily again, and it used its invisible vines to attack both Tang Li Xue and Beiming Chu again.
"This carnivorous tree has rapid regeneration. We can only take it down in one strike, or it will keep regenerating." Tang Li Xue muttered to Beiming Chu.
"I think so too. That is why I used half of my Qi to execute my strongest martial art technique to take it down before. But I still failed to bring it down..." Beiming Chu replied to Tang Li Xue with an embarrassed tone.
"I understand. Let me try it this time. Can you make it busy and protect me for a few moments?" Tang Li Xue asked Beiming Chu with a serious expression.
"Leave it to me, Miss Xue! I promise to never let it touch you as long as I am still alive!" Beiming Chu nodded at Tang Li Xue as he stood in front of her while swinging his sword to cut tens of invisible vines that kept attacking them.
"Then I will trust my life to you, Brother Beiming." Tang Li Xue replied as she raised the [Frost Swan Sword] in her grasp.
Tang Li Xue poured her Qi onto her [Frost Swan Sword] to condense the sharpest sword intent and wrapped it on her [Frost Swan Sword].
[Paragon Sword Technique]!
Of course, she would never use [Perpetual Slash] since it would drain all of her Qi in one go, then it made her completely exhausted and defenseless for a few hours.
Tang Li Xue still did not trust Beiming Chu at all.
She was still aware that Beiming Chu would sooner or later realize that she was the one who robbed him and Meng Ying before.
Who knew if he would suddenly stab her from behind later.
When terrifying sharpest sword intent condensed from [Paragon Sword Technique] completely wrapped Tang Li Xue's [Frost Swan Sword], even Beiming Chu shuddered when he felt a terrible sense of danger coming from Tang Li Xue's sword.
"Go forward, Brother Beiming! Help me open the way! I will take that tree down with my sword!" Tang Li Xue instructed Beiming Chu.
