Chapter 476: Tang Li Xue’s Crazy Plan!
Chapter 476: Tang Li Xue’s Crazy Plan!
When Tang Li Xue sensed that more than one hundred Sapphire Armored Wasps were flying in neat formation toward the tunnel where she hid, she was startled and began to panic.
'Damn it! Did that Sapphire Wasp Queen discover us? No way, right? She would have sent more Sapphire Armored Wasps to catch us if she really already discovered us.' Tang Li Xue's mind deduced fast.
Surprisingly, she was still clear-headed, even though she was already in a dire situation.
'Oh, I get it! That Sapphire Wasp Queen should only vaguely feel it was being stared at by us before. Aiss, this Sapphire Wasp Queen is really such a troublesome monster! We were only staring at it for a few seconds, and it was from so far away, but it could still sense us?!' Tang Li Xue groaned in frustration.
Tang Li Xue swiftly hugged Little Loki and brought it to retreat farther away from the tunnel connected with the spacious hall's entrance with her.
But Tang Li Xue felt it was still far from enough since the one hundred patrolling Sapphire Armored Wasps ordered by the Sapphire Wasp Queen might still discover her and Little Loki.
She and Little Loki would undoubtedly get caught sooner or later if the one hundred Sapphire Armored Wasps kept checking this entire tunnel carefully inch by inch, so her brain kept thinking of the best way out.
'This is not good... I do not want to keep wasting my time playing cat and mouse with these Sapphire Armored Wasps. This is the worst situation!' Tang Li Xue frowned deeply as she complained in her heart.
Tang Li Xue took a deep breath. She pinched her chin and started to think more carefully: 'Fuuh, calm down, Tang Li Xue... Hmm, rather than keep hiding and running away like this, I prefer to be more offensive and aggressive! Is it possible if we just forcefully take the royal jelly and run away as quickly as possible from here? But... how?'
In Tang Li Xue's opinion, 'Forcefully' taking the royal jelly in front of those ten thousand Sapphire Armored Wasps and their queen was almost an impossible mission!
It was the same as asking to be publicly executed on the spot!
Just when Tang Li Xue's mind was in a mess, and she was almost ready to give up...
Little Loki suddenly jumped down from Tang Li Xue's embrace and growled angrily at her: "Nyaw, meow, grrr...."
It seems Little Loki was angered by Tang Li Xue's hesitation.
Then Little Loki dashed back toward the tightly guarded spacious hall without caring about Tang Li Xue's opinion.
"Wait! Little Loki, what do you want to do?! Come back here now!" Tang Li Xue almost shouted out loud at Little Loki in a worried tone, but she quickly controlled her voice's volume, so the nearby patrolling Sapphire Armored Wasps would not hear her voice.
Tang Li Xue quickly chased after Little Loki before it did something ridiculous and got found out by the patrolling Sapphire Armored Wasps.
However, the nearby patrolling Sapphire Armored Wasps were not stupid.
They immediately realized where Tang Li Xue made a commotion and quickly flew toward the dark tunnel where Tang Li Xue and Little Loki currently hid.
When the patrolling Sapphire Armored Wasps met face to face with Little Loki, Little Loki mercilessly launched a series of attacks toward them before they could do anything!
[Earth Locking Heaven Slaying Formation]!
More than ten patrolling Sapphire Armored Wasps that came toward Little Loki were locked by Little Loki's [Earth Locking Heaven Slaying Formation] in an instant.
Just like Tang Li Xue in the second trial to enter Myriad Foxes Academy before, these patrolling Sapphire Armored Wasps could not move, and all of their senses were sealed.
After all, these Sapphire Armored Wasps were far from as powerful as the white-feathered giant owl or the Sapphire Wasp Queen was, so Little Loki's [Earth Locking Heaven Slaying Formation] could still seal their senses and movement for quite some time.
Little Loki used another of its skill shortly after that without giving any chance for the patrolling Sapphire Armored Wasps to grasp what just happened to them!
Little Loki's little furry black figure instantly vanished and appeared again right in front of the patrolling Sapphire Armored Wasps.
Then Little Loki opened its tiny mouth as wide as it could toward them...
Like a tiny black hole suddenly opened in Little Loki's tiny mouth, the surrounding spiritual energy, and even the surrounding space were trembling as they got sucked into Little Loki's tiny mouth.
More than ten patrolling Sapphire Armored Wasps that were previously bounded by Little Loki's [Earth Locking Heaven Slaying Formation] also got sucked one by one into Little Loki's tiny mouth.
After eating all of the ten patrolling Sapphire Armored Wasps, Little Loki burped and licked its lips, but it still felt unsatisfied.
All of these had happened in front of Tang Li Xue's eyes!
Tang Li Xue was completely stunned silly.
Tang Li Xue knew that Little Loki was very powerful as pure-blooded Tao Tie since it could even fight back and forth for a while against the white-feathered giant owl before.
But she did not know that all of Little Loki's abilities would be this powerful!
After all, Tang Li Xue could not even move under the pressure of the white-feathered giant owl previously, so she could not observe the battle between Little Loki and the white-feathered giant owl clearly.
"Little Loki, you..." Tang Li Xue was completely taken aback and did not know what she should say to Little Loki now.
While Little Loki stared back at Tang Li Xue nervously. It was afraid that Tang Li Xue would be frightened or even disgusted by its dreadful abilities.
Tang Li Xue sensed Little Loki's mixed feelings, so she slowly raised her thumb and smiled gently at Little Loki.
Then she suddenly pointed her thumb downward and berated Little Loki without any mercy: "What? You want to get praised after doing something reckless and stupid like that?! Dream on, little guy! If you dare to do something dangerous like that again next time, I will surely spank hard your a*s!"
However, Tang Li Xue actually whined in her heart: 'Holyshit! This little crazy cat could really do all of those?! How the hell it can become so powerful when it is still only a cub?! Damn it, I am very envious~!'
Little Loki rolled its black eyes in disdain and complained back to Tang Li Xue: "Nyaw~ Meow~ Meow~"
"Eeeeehhh, what?! You want to become bait to buy some time for me to take the royal jelly and the honey?! No, no, no, no... Mommy will never agree... err... There is no way I will let you do something dangerous like that!"
Yes, Little Loki showed its fearsome abilities to Tang Li Xue because it wanted to suggest itself as bait to attract the attention of all Sapphire Armored Wasps including the Sapphire Wasp Queen in the tightly guarded spacious hall.
But how could Tang Li Xue let Little Loki take that kind of extremely dangerous role?!
Both Tang Li Xue and Little Loki did not want to back down, so they started to argue with each other.
Little Loki: Rawr~ Mew~ Meow~ Nyaw~! (I have [Earth Locking Heaven Slaying Formation] to control all of those smaller insects!)
Tang Li Xue: "No, no, no... that thing only works for the Sapphire Armored Wasps! What about the queen? It will not work, right?"
dα- |m Little Loki: "Meow~ Mew~ Meow~ Nyaw~!" (But I also have [Instant Teleportation] so I can retreat anytime!)
Tang Li Xue: "So what?! I also have [Shadow Flash] so I can escape anytime too!"
Little Loki: "Mew~ Mew~ Nyaow~!" (Can you withstand the huge pressure from that huge insect? You cannot, right?! You cannot even use any of your divine abilities here!)
Tang Li Xue:.....
Keep arguing like this was not the right solution.
Moreover, the other patrolling Sapphire Armored Wasps would realize sooner or later that ten or so of their comrades had already gone missing.
After pondering it for a while, Tang Li Xue finally got a good idea.
'System?' Tang Li Xue tried to communicate with her system to trigger a quest again.
[Quest: (Mission Impossible) Collect the royal jelly and honey in the nest of Sapphire Armored Wasps!]
[Reward: According to the amount of royal jelly and honey you collect. The more royal jelly and honey you collect, the richer the reward you would receive later.]
Tang Li Xue: '?!'
'Woah, nice! Finally successfully triggered a new quest~! Where are you all this time, system?! I thought you got frightened and already ran away from me because of that fat bird before!' Tang Li Xue complained in delight.
As usual, her system would never reply to any unimportant question so Tang Li Xue started to think again: 'Only Hard level difficulty huh... Not as hard as I expect! But how could we...'
In Tang Li Xue's estimation before, the difficulty should be at least Nightmare difficulty or higher since the royal jelly and the honey were not only guarded by ten thousand Sapphire Armored Wasps but also the spirit beast level, the Sapphire Wasp Queen.
Tang Li Xue's topaz blue eyes shone with excitement as she got enlightened: 'Wait a minute... Little Loki's abilities... and me with the help of [Stealth Talisman +3] and [Stealth Illusion Talisman +3]... Also adding several evil spirits from the [Scepter of Disaster]... I get it! Uwehehehe, this quest might be really not as hard as I thought it would be before!'
Tang Li Xue glanced at Little Loki and nagged it again with a resolute tone: "Okay, I agree. BUT... you must follow all my plans to detail! And also, you must retreat if you face any unexpected danger later! Do you get it?!"
Then Tang Li Xue hugged Little Loki closely and whispered her plan right into its furry little ears.
Little Loki's expression became strange when it heard Tang Li Xue's plan.
It was a crazy plan... and very messy, but somehow, Little Loki concluded it might really work wonders in this kind of situation.
Tang Li Xue took out her [Scepter of Disaster], some of her [Stealth Talisman +3] and [Stealth Illusion Talisman +3], then gave them to Little Loki.
"You can go rampage now, Little Loki! But you must always remember to always stay alert and be really careful! Your safety should always be of the utmost importance!" Tang Li Xue smiled while encouraging Little Loki, but she also did not forget to remind Little Loki to stay safe.
Little Loki meowed at Tang Li Xue and licked her tender white cheek softly, then it jumped down from Tang Li Xue's embrace and turned invisible once again.
Tang Li Xue could not help getting uneasy because the protagonist this time was Little Loki since only Little Loki could remain unaffected by the terrifying pressure from the Sapphire Wasp Queen.
