Chapter 481: Turnaround!
Chapter 481: Turnaround!
Just like what Little Loki and Tang Li Xue had predicted, it did not take long for the crowd of Sapphire Armored Wasps to swarm toward their direction.
Tang Li Xue halted her step when she saw a swarm of Sapphire Armored Wasps flying toward them from the tunnel in front of them.
Tang Li Xue tried to run in the other direction, but the other tunnels were also flooded by the swarm of Sapphire Armored Wasps too.
There was really no other route to escape anymore...
Both Tang Li Xue and Little Loki were completely surrounded by the swarm of Sapphire Armored Wasps from all directions!
d| "Err... is this the real checkmate? Is there still something we can still do? What if we forcefully breakthrough..." Tang Li Xue whispered to Little Loki as she silently scanned the surrounding.
But her surrounding was densely packed with the swarm of Sapphire Armored Wasps. There was not even a space for her to crawl without bumping into any of them!
"Forget it... Oh, yes! Little Loki, how about using your teleportation ability to get out of here?" Tang Li Xue's topaz blue eyes shone as she suggested to Little Loki.
Little Loki rolled its black eyes and immediately denied Tang Li Xue's suggestion: "Nyaaawww~!"
If its [Instant Teleportation] could teleport Tang Li Xue and itself out from here that easily, then Little Loki would have already done so long ago!
But its [Instant Teleportation] could only do short-distance teleportation, and it could not bring anyone or anything bigger than itself.
Well, unless it could swallow them first...
WWEEEEENGGGG~!!! BBBUUUUUUUZZZ~!!! BBBUUUUUUUZZZ~!!!
The Sapphire Wasp Queen was buzzing out loud as if to declare its victory.
The armies of Sapphire Armored Wasps were also following their queen and buzzing loudly.
Tang Li Xue's furry silver fox ears became droopy as she felt apprehensive.
"Err... Hi, everyone! Good morning, my friends! Uhh... We... We are just kidding, guys... Ahahaha, don't be angry! I can give it back all of your honey and royal jelly, but can you just let us go from here?" Tang Li Xue said in the most gentle tone and even showed her brightest smile.
All of those combined with her stunning beautiful face and mesmerizing topaz blue eyes, any male would surely be bewitched and fell so hard for her.
Unfortunately, there were no males here to appreciate it, only one black kitten and a lot of insects...
The Sapphire Wasp Queen and its armies of Sapphire Armored Wasps did not seem impressed by Tang Li Xue's words.
Instead, all of them pointed their sharp stinger toward Tang Li Xue!
If all of them shot their sharp stinger at once toward Tang Li Xue from all directions, even Little Loki's [Heaven's Devour] could not overcome it.
Since Little Loki's [Heaven's Devour] could only cover one direction.
Tang Li Xue quickly raised both of her hands to surrender in panic while shouting: "Hey, hey, take it easy, guys! All right, it does not work at all... This doesn't look good for us, Little Loki... Do you have any good idea?"
Little Loki also shook its furry head in frustration.
If it was alone, Little Loki might be able to escape from here with its [Instant Teleportation]...
But if Little Loki entered alone before, then it certainly could not get the honey and royal jelly under the Sapphire Wasp Queen's watchful eyes!
Anyway, it was already too late for them to regret or think about anything right now...
Because the Sapphire Wasp Queen and all of the Sapphire Armored Wasps already shot their sharp stinger toward Tang Li Xue and Little Loki in unison!
The rapid sound of their sharp stingers being fired all at once was like the horrible sound of death!
Just when both Tang Li Xue and Little Loki were completely at their wit's end in this hopeless situation...
Something that no one expected had suddenly happened!
The deep blue flames burst out from Tang Li Xue's body all of a sudden!
The deep blue flame engulfed all of the sharp stingers that were flying toward Tang Li Xue and burned them all into nothingness!
The extremely high temperature deep blue flames were even burning the hive's floor, the surrounding walls, and even the ceiling like a paper castle!
The entire dark tunnel was completely lit up by the deep blue flames!
The floor under Tang Li Xue's feet burned away in only a few seconds, and Tang Li Xue's slender figure continuously fell down...
1st floor... 2nd floor... 3rd floor... 4th floor… and so on…
All the way until she fell out of the Sapphire Armored Wasp's hive!
"This is... We manage to get out of the hive?! Just like that?!" Tang Li Xue muttered as she dropped her jaw in surprise.
A deafening Phoenix's cry resounded as it flew out from Tang Li Xue's Dantian!
"Phoenix of Pride? You damn bird, you finally wake up!" Tang Li Xue exclaimed with an extremely excited tone while a beautiful relieved smile bloomed on her stunning face.
The Phoenix of Pride rolled its eyes at Tang Li Xue in disdain...
If you were thinking that it happened to awake by chance at that right time, then you were wrong!
The Phoenix of Pride could sense that Tang Li Xue was in grave danger when it was in deep slumber previously.
So, it could only forcefully urge the [Sun Dragon King's Pearl] to help it digest the source of Purple Ghost Flame quicker!
Of course, around 30% of the power from the source of Purple Ghost Flame was absorbed by the [Sun Dragon King's Pearl] as a consequence.
But there was no other way since it could not let Tang Li Xue die just like that.
"What a good bird~! I thought you are only an arrogant, lazy, greedy, and egoist bird without any good traits, who knows you are so dependable!" Tang Li Xue praised the Phoenix of Pride and gave it a thumbs up.
Little Loki pouted as it felt a bit salty and jealous.
But the Phoenix of Pride did not feel happy at all for Tang Li Xue's praise, it even had the urge to dump Tang Li Xue and go back to sleep.
"Meeow~! Nyaw~!" Little Loki meowed as it pointed its furry paw downward.
Little Loki warned Tang Li Xue that they were still falling down like a heavy rock, and it would not take long for them to slam into the ground.
"Oh, that is right... I almost forgot... Let's go, damn bird!" Tang Li Xue uttered as she slapped her forehead and called for the Phoenix of Pride.
The Phoenix of Pride let out a deafening cry as it flew toward Tang Li Xue and entered Tang Li Xue's Dantian again.
The Phoenix of Pride assimilated with Tang Li Xue, and Tang Li Xue's slender figure was clad in the deep blue Flame of Pride in that instant!
Tang Li Xue took a deep breath as the deep blue Flame of Pride gathered and merged in every cell of her body...
She could also sense that the power of the deep blue Flame of Pride had grown many times stronger than before!
It seems the Phoenix of Pride had progressed quite significantly after it digested the source of Purple Ghost Flame.
Even the [Pure Sun Dragon] bloodline in Tang Li Xue's body and veins was boiling hotter than ever.
Then Tang Li Xue used an ability that she had not used yet since she entered this Inheritance Ground Tablet.
A pair of deep blue Phoenix wings unfurled on Tang Li Xue's back.
Tang Li Xue flapped her deep blue Phoenix wings and her slender figure soaring into the sky.
There was the flying prohibition covering the entire Inheritance Ground Tablet before.
Well... without that flying restriction, all cultivators that entered this Inheritance Ground Tablet would already use their flying sword or flying treasure to travel around and take the inheritances.
Of course, the creatures like the white feathered giant owl, flower fairies, and Sapphire Armored Wasps were not affected by this flying restriction since they were native creatures of this place.
But it seems this towering world tree area was an exception since Tang Li Xue could use her [Phoenix Wings] to fly here.
'Although the Flame of Pride becomes a lot stronger than before, but it also consumes much more energy.' Tang Li Xue thought carefully.
'It also becomes many times harder to control than before. Sigh... It seems I need to work hard to practice again later.' Tang Li Xue concluded in detail.
Just when Tang Li Xue thought deeply, the Sapphire Wasp Queen along with the armies of Sapphire Armored Wasps also flew out from their hive.
The Sapphire Wasp Queen actually led the armies of Sapphire Armored Wasps to chase after Tang Li Xue in rage!
"Tsk, they are really persistent! So annoying!" Tang Li Xue complained as she clicked her tongue in vexation.
Tang Li Xue hastily flapped the [Phoenix Wings] on her back to increase her flying speed!
But the Sapphire Wasp Queen and the armies of Sapphire Armored Wasps quickly formed an arrow formation and their flying speed skyrocketed by several times in an instant!
"What an annoying group of insects?! You are really starting to irritate me! Don't think the current me is still the same as the previous me!" Tang Li Xue gnashed her pearl-white teeth in anger.
Tang Li Xue started to put her palms together and compress her deep blue Flame of Pride into the space between her palms!
