Chapter 468: A Huge Gift!
Chapter 468: A Huge Gift!
The queen of flower fairies and Little Loki kept staring at each other with loathing expressions.
Even Tang Li Xue could faintly sense the thick aura of hostility between the two.
Tang Li Xue felt even more nervous for each passing second, and even her heartbeat became erratic.
Then Tang Li Xue raised her right hand and wiped the cold sweat on her forehead.
When Tang Li Xue wiped her forehead with her sleeve, the queen of flower fairies stopped staring at Little Loki, but the fairy queen curiously stared at the candies in Tang Li Xue's right-hand grasp.
Tang Li Xue immediately realized that the fairy queen stared at her right now, and she became extremely tense.
Tang Li Xue stopped wiping her cold sweat and lowered her right hand, but the fairy queen's stare kept following the candies in Tang Li Xue's right hand.
Tang Li Xue also glanced at her right hand and finally realized that she was still holding some candies in her grasp.
'Eh? Don't tell me this fairy queen wants... to try this candy?' Tang Li Xue widened her topaz blue eyes in surprise.
"Err... This is candy. It is sweet and delicious. Do you want to try it?" Tang Li Xue said with a smiling expression as she offered the several candies in her right hand to the fairy queen.
The queen of flower fairies hesitated for a while. It seems the fairy queen became wary toward Tang Li Xue because of the hidden evil aura from Little Loki but she still took one candy on Tang Li Xue's palm.
After taking the candy from Tang Li Xue, the queen of flower fairies curiously observed the candy closer.
Tang Li Xue felt the queen of flower fairies still did not understand her words, so she decided to take one candy and popped it into her mouth to show that the candy was actually some kind of food.
The queen of flower fairies hesitated again and sniffed the candy for some time.
The Tang Li Xue's candies were actually candied fruit.
It was made from some small sour or sweet fruit similar to cherry or date fruit, then dipped into sugar, syrup, and honey.
When the queen of flower fairies sniffed the candy, the fragrant sweet scent of fruit, honey, and sugar was enticing her taste buds.
The queen of flower fairies licked the candy first to taste it, and her expression turned into joy, then she also put the candy into her mouth.
Tang Li Xue sighed in relief at first, then she wanted to laugh out loud when she saw the fairy queen's blissful expression.
Of course, she did not dare to laugh in front of the fairy queen's face since she was afraid that the fairy queen thought that she was mocking the fairy queen.
The other small flower fairies also curiously approached Tang Li Xue when they saw the blissful expression on the fairy queen's face.
Tang Li Xue smiled gently at them and gave candy to each of them.
When the small flower fairies tasted Tang Li Xue's candies, they instantly fell in love with it, and their expression also turned blissful.
After a few moments, the queen of flower fairies had finished eating the candy, and her blissful expression turned into frustration, then she stared pitifully at Tang Li Xue as if she was asking for more candy.
Tang Li Xue laughed for real this time, then she took a small bag filled with candies and gave it to the fairy queen.
The fairy queen's beautiful eyes shone brightly when she saw a bag of candies. She took it from Tang Li Xue, then bowed a bit to show her gratitude.
"Ahahaha... No need to be polite. A bag of candy is actually pretty cheap. Ah, right... But you have always lived here, so you probably cannot buy them outside." Tang Li Xue suddenly felt sad for this fairy queen and flower fairies, since they might stay in this Inheritance Ground Tablet forever.
The fairy queen suddenly vanished from Tang Li Xue's view for a few moments, then she appeared again with [Seven-Colored Blossom Flower] in her hand and offered it to Tang Li Xue.
"Eh? This is for me?" Tang Li Xue exclaimed in surprise.
The fairy queen nodded with a kind smile on her face.
"But... this flower looks so precious. It is surely a thousand times more precious than a bag of candy. I... I cannot accept this." Tang Li Xue hesitated and tried to refuse the [Seven-Colored Blossom Flower].
If she accepted this [Seven-Colored Blossom Flower] for a bag of candy, then she would feel like a swindler that exchanging a copper coin with a spirit stone.
But the fairy queen seems to not mind it at all and kept pushing the [Seven-Colored Blossom Flower] to Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue reluctantly accepted the [Seven-Colored Blossom Flower] since the fairy queen kept insisted for Tang Li Xue to accept it.
The fairy queen nodded in satisfaction after Tang Li Xue accepted the [Seven-Colored Blossom Flower] and stored it in her space pouch.
Tang Li Xue felt guilty since she felt as if she had just scammed the fairy queen, so she took every kind of food in her space pouch and let the fairy queen and little flower fairies tasted them.
Then Tang Li Xue found out that the fairy queen and flower fairies could not eat meat, but they really like sweets such as candies, cakes, and fruits.
After learned about that, Tang Li Xue gave them all the cakes and fruits she stored in her space pouch.
The fairy queen happily accepted them.
After playing and eating together with the beautiful fairy queen and cute tiny flower fairies for a few hours, Tang Li Xue bid farewell to them and continued her journey.
The fairy queen and tiny flower fairies even escorted Tang Li Xue to pass the flower field.
Tang Li Xue waved her hand to them and used her [Snow Dance Step] to hastily dash deeper to the herb garden.
No, it should have been called herb valley since the size of this herb garden was too big to be called a 'garden'.
"Fiuhhh... That is really scary. Luckily, that flower fairy queen is gentle and kind. Unlike wind fairy queen that looks cold and unapproachable." Tang Li Xue muttered while sighed in relief.
Then Tang Li Xue suddenly grabbed Little Loki that sat on her right shoulder and scolded it: "Little Loki~! How could you provoke such a terrifying fairy queen?! You cannot do it like that again next time, okay?"
Little Loki pouted and turned away its furry head. It seems Little Loki did not want to follow Tang Li Xue's words.
'Obviously, she was the one who started first. Why should I be the one that gives in?!' Little Loki thought as it rolled its third eye.
Little Loki was Tao Tie, the king of Four Evil Fiend Beasts, so how could he lower his head to an inferior creature born from a mere flower like that flower fairy queen?!
In the end, Tang Li Xue was the one that decided to yield and said: "You... Sigh... How can you become so rebellious?! Forget it... You just need to pretend to sleep if we are in a similar situation next time. How about it? You can do it, right?"
Little Loki ignored Tang Li Xue and yawned, then it jumped out from Tang Li Xue's grasp and landed on her right shoulder.
Little Loki curled its tiny furry body and went asleep.
Tang Li Xue: "....."
'All right, I assume that you agree with my idea.' Tang Li Xue sighed again in resignation.
After passed through the flower field, Tang Li Xue entered the vast meadow.
There was still white fog that faintly hindering her vision, but at least, Tang Li Xue could still see much clearer in this vast meadow since there were no big trees or thick bushes that blocking in front of her.
Tang Li Xue could also run faster in this vast meadow without being afraid of being bumped into something or being ambushed by some beasts.
However, Tang Li Xue felt even more insecure in this vast meadow instead rather than in the forest, swamp, or flower field.
Actually, there were many precious herbs in this vast meadow, but Tang Li Xue ignored all of them since her sharp sense warned her of some intense danger that would come to her anytime.
Just when Tang Li Xue wanted to increase her speed to maximum...
Little Loki suddenly hooked its tail onto Tang Li Xue's neck and jumped down from Tang Li Xue's shoulder.
"What are you..." Tang Li Xue wanted to ask what Little Loki want to do in confusion, but she suddenly felt that she was pulled down by something heavy until she fell onto the grassy ground and lied down there.
Normally, Little Loki would not be able to pull Tang Li Xue down with its negligible weight, but Little Loki used a gravity ability it got from eating the treasured sword in Crystal Palace Tomb.
When Tang Li Xue almost lost her temper and scold Little Loki for its naughty deed, Little Loki suddenly covered Tang Li Xue's pink lips with its paw while used its other paw to point upward.
Tang Li Xue still felt confused, but she still decided to shut up and followed Little Loki's paw, then stared upward.
Tang Li Xue's pupil shrank in horror when she saw something huge was flying in the sky.
