Chapter 465: The Might of [Soul Slaying Sword]!
'Eh... This is the effect of my [Imperial Moon Fox] bloodline! But... what are those? white threads?' Tang Li Xue thought as she suddenly felt the cool sensation from her [Imperial Moon Fox] bloodline.
The effect of [Imperial Moon Fox] bloodline was still the same as before.
It made Tang Li Xue's mind felt a lot calmer and cool. So, she could think a lot faster and became more focused.
The scene in front of her topaz blue eyes also slowed down a lot slower than usual, as if everything she saw was moving in slow motion.
But Tang Li Xue did not see these white threads the last time her [Imperial Moon Fox] bloodline activated...
Then Tang Li Xue quickly realized that her [Imperial Moon Fox] bloodline was actually connected to something inside her mind, and it kept profusely draining her mental energy.
Tang Li Xue immediately checked what was draining her mental energy and found out that the culprit was actually the tiny transparent sword floating at the center of her sea of consciousness.
'So, those white threads are the effect of this tiny sword? What is that for? Erm... If I am not wrong, that tomb owner's soul called it [Soul Slaying Sword]. Soul Slaying... Don't tell me all of these white threads are the souls of those disgusting leeches?! So, I can kill all of them if I cut all of those white threads with the tiny sword?' Under the effect of her [Imperial Moon Fox] bloodline, Tang Li Xue's mind was moving quickly to deduce everything.
Unfortunately, Tang Li Xue knew her limit very well, so she shook her head and thought: 'That is impossible to do. I can only barely use this [Soul Slaying Sword]'s ability with the help of my [Imperial Moon Fox] bloodline.'
'I probably can only wield this [Soul Slaying Sword] once, then I will probably deplete all of my mental energy after that and passed out. There is no way I can slay all of them in one strike, so I will definitely die after I passed out later.' Tang Li Xue pondered her next action carefully.
'But if I did not do anything to get out from this crucial situation, these leeches will suck all of my blood soon. Then I will pass out and died too... sigh... What a dilemma...' Tang Li Xue sighed in resignation.
In the end, Tang Li Xue decided to gamble and use the [Soul Slaying Sword] even though she must deplete all of her mental energy by doing that.
Tang Li Xue focused her mind on the [Soul Slaying Sword] that floating at the center of her sea of consciousness.
The [Soul Slaying Sword] trembled violently as if it wanted to break away from Tang Li Xue's control.
Tang Li Xue gnashed her teeth and shouted telepathically toward the [Soul Slaying Sword]: 'Shut up little thing! You are sitting inside my mind and keep feeding on my mental energy all this time! So, it means you are mine from now on, and you must listen to my every order!'
After scolding the [Soul Slaying Sword], Tang Li Xue could feel that its resistance seemed decreased by a lot, but it still trembled slightly as if it was still unwilling to listen to the master much weaker than itself.
Tang Li Xue did not care about the [Soul Slaying Sword]'s feeling and reluctance as she immediately urged the [Soul Slaying Sword] to fly out from her mind.
It was truly hard for the current Tang Li Xue to control the [Soul Slaying Sword]. It was like a child trying to ride a powerful unicorn.
But her [Imperial Moon Fox] bloodline acted like a tight rein that assisted her to control the [Soul Slaying Sword].
"UOOOOHHHH~!!! GO, CUT THEM ALL!" Tang Li Xue bellowed out loud as she swung her right hand with great difficulty.
The [Soul Slaying Sword] followed the movement of Tang Li Xue's right hand as it flashed out from Tang Li Xue's forehead, and its target was... the place where all of the white threads connected and congregated!
The [Soul Slaying Sword] flew so swiftly without creating any sound or ripple in the water, added with its transparent form, the [Soul Slaying Sword] was completely undetected.
Moreover, the [Soul Slaying Sword] was a spirit weapon, so it could moving unhindered in the water and passed through any solid material or defense, then cut the target's soul directly without being hindered by the target's body, so it would be futile even if the target has a sturdy body.
Currently, the [Soul Slaying Sword] flashed very swiftly like a lightning bolt toward the place where all of the white threads connected and congregated while cutting all the white threads on its path.
The [Soul Slaying Sword] easily severed all of the white threads that connected and congregated together!
After that, the [Soul Slaying Sword] flew back toward Tang Li Xue and entered back into Tang Li Xue's forehead.
The [Soul Slaying Sword] was floating back on the top of Tang Li Xue's sea of consciousness, but it looked much weaker and fragile than before.
It seems Tang Li Xue would not be able to use this [Soul Slaying Sword] in a short time until it recovered from its weakened state.
Tang Li Xue did not have any time to look at the result of her desperate attack using the [Soul Slaying Sword] as her consciousness became blurry, and she passed out again.
Little Loki sensed that Tang Li Xue lost her consciousness again since her mental energy was completely spent.
Little Loki tapped its small furry paw onto Tang Li Xue's right shoulder and teleported out from inside the swamp with her.
Of course, Little Loki's teleport was not powerful enough to bring both of them out from the swamp area, so Little Loki only brought Tang Li Xue to the top of the giant tree near them.
Tang Li Xue laid down on one of the branches of the giant tree while Little Loki sat on the top of her slender body.
With one blow of its breath, Little Loki dried Tang Li Xue's wet clothes in an instant, then it decided to patiently wait for Tang Li Xue until she recovered her mental energy and regained her consciousness.
After checking and making sure that Tang Li Xue was all right, Little Loki glanced back at the swamp below the giant tree.
Countless big leeches were floating on the swamp water.
Their number was so many that they dyed the entire surface of swamp water with their black color.
But all of them could no longer move or threaten Tang Li Xue anymore since they were already dead.
Even Little Loki was very surprised at the might of Tang Li Xue's [Soul Slaying Sword], and it subconsciously licked its lips while wondering what was the taste of that tiny transparent sword... It should be delicious, right?
Unfortunately, the [Soul Slaying Sword] already merged with Tang Li Xue's soul, so Little Loki could not eat it, or Tang Li Xue's soul would suffer a heavy backlash.
After a few days, Tang Li Xue finally recovered some of her mental energy and slowly woke up from her deep slumber.
"Shhhh... Ow~ Ow~ Ow~ My head~!" Tang Li Xue held her head while hissing in pain.
Tang Li Xue almost slipped from the branch and fell from the tree because of a head-splitting headache and dizziness.
Her terrible headache was the side effect of using her [Imperial Moon Fox] bloodline to use the power beyond her limit.
But she quickly forgot her terrible headache when she saw the swamp filled with countless dead big black leeches.
"Oh... My... God... All of them died? What the hell has happened? Who kill them?" Tang Li Xue dropped her jaw and murmured in shock.
Little Loki pointed its tiny furry paw at Tang Li Xue herself.
"Eh, what do you say? ME?! I am the one who killed them all?! How can it be?! Are you kidding me? I do not even do anything... err... wait a minute... I vaguely remember that I do something, but I cannot remember it clearly." Tang Li Xue muttered in confusion while rubbed her forehead to ease her head-splitting headache and dizziness.
Yes, Tang Li Xue wielded the [Soul Slaying Sword] in a half-conscious state before under the effect of her [Imperial Moon Fox] bloodline, so she could not remember what she had done before really clearly.
Anyway, Tang Li Xue sighed in relief since she was still alive right now, and she could also pass this swamp area without any need to face the threat of these big leeches anymore.
Although Tang Li Xue still have a great headache and dizziness, but her Qi and stamina were already in optimum condition after a few days of rest, so she decided to continue her way.
For some unknown reason, this swamp area still gave her an eerie and unsettling feeling, so she wanted to pass this swamp area as soon as possible.
Tang Li Xue executed her [Snow Dance Step] as she jumped down from the giant tree's branch.
Her slender figure landed gracefully on the muddy swamp, and the muddy swamp water instantly froze when Tang Li Xue's feet touched it.
Tang Li Xue did not hesitate and swiftly dashed forward with her full speed.
"Urgh... I hate the slimy feeling when I stepped on these dead leeches... It feels so disgusting!" Tang Li Xue groaned in disgust, but she did not slow down her speed at all.
Even with Tang Li Xue's speed with her [Snow Dance Step], she still needed a few hours to pass the vast swamp area.
Tang Li Xue felt relieved when she finally stepped out from the swamp, and her feet landed on the grassy solid ground.
Tang Li Xue kept sprinting even after she passed the swamp area, while Little Loki that sat leisurely on her right shoulder as usual squinted its third eye as it stared back at the swamp behind Tang Li Xue.
BLURP... BLURP... BLURP... BLURP... BLURP...
The giant eyes slowly emerged from the bottom of the swamp and glared at Tang Li Xue from behind.
The giant eyes' glare silently clashed with Little Loki's stare for a few moments.
Tang Li Xue got farther and farther from the swamp, but Little Loki and the giant eyes kept glaring at each other.
In the end, the giant eyes submerged again into the bottom of the swamp without doing anything.
Tang Li Xue thought she would enter the forest again after she passed from the swamp area, but no... she actually entered the flower field this time.
The countless colorful flowers under the starry night sky were truly breathtakingly beautiful.
Even Tang Li Xue took a deep breath and decided to stop running to admire the amazingly beautiful scenery in front of her for a while.
