Chapter 482: (Spoiler Title at the Bottom of This Chapter)
Tang Li Xue carefully controlled the deep blue Flame of Pride and focused it on one point.
Unfortunately, the result was not so good...
Tang Li Xue's control over the deep blue Flame of Pride had slipped down so much after it got upgraded and became many times stronger than before.
"Oh, crap~! This is not looking good!" Tang Li Xue spoke in panic as she quickly threw the deep blue flame ball onto the armies of Sapphire Armored Wasps that chasing behind her.
The armies of Sapphire Armored Wasps really did not expect that Tang Li Xue would suddenly turn around and throw something toward them, so before they had any time to react...
The tremendous explosion was instantly triggered!
The terrifying destructive shockwave was rolling around violently.
Even the nearby gigantic branches of the towering world tree were shaking because of it.
Surprisingly, the power of this failed [Spiral Sphere Bomb] was several times stronger than the complete [Spiral Sphere Bomb] that Tang Li Xue had used before.
Tang Li Xue did not expect her failed [Spiral Sphere Bomb] to be so powerful, and her slender figure was thrown tens of meters away.
It took a while for her to flap the [Phoenix Wings] on her back to stop spinning in mid-air and stabilized herself.
"Holysh*t! That was really dangerous! I thought I was already a goner just now!" Tang Li Xue cussed with a relieved tone.
Tang Li Xue's graceful white dress became even more tattered than before, and her silky smooth silver hair had also become disheveled.
Tang Li Xue hastily checked Little Loki, who sat on her left shoulder before.
Thankfully, Little Loki did not fall down when Tang Li Xue was thrown away before. It was all right, only felt a little bit dizzy.
Tang Li Xue sighed in relief and took two [Talisman of Regeneration +3] from her space, then used them on herself and Little Loki.
"Nyaow~!" Little Loki wanted to refuse, but Tang Li Xue ignored its rejection and still stuck the [Talisman of Regeneration +3] onto its furry back, then put Little Loki back onto her left shoulder.
After that, Tang Li Xue carefully examined the situation of the Sapphire Wasp Queen and its subordinates.
Tang Li Xue was a bit disappointed when she saw the Sapphire Wasp Queen was completely fine, except for a few scorched marks on its sapphire armor.
However, many Sapphire Armored Wasps were already turned into coal and fell from the sky like a meteor shower.
Tang Li Xue immediately became energetic again as she happily laughed at the miserable Sapphire Armored Wasps and said with a gleeful tone: "Humph~! Now you know the consequence of looking down on me!"
Tang Li Xue actually did not want to go this far at the beginning, because she was the one who wronged them first.
Well, I mean... killing people... err, I mean killing insects after robbing them and burning their home sounds pretty... inhumane.
But Tang Li Xue finally ran out of her patience when the Sapphire Wasp Queen still brought so many of its subordinates to hunt her down after she escaped from their hive as if she was a pushover.
'Anyway, I am not a human anymore! I am a fox now, so it only makes sense if I act like a fox too.' Tang Li Xue silently thought to ease her guilt.
Despite their miserable situation, the Sapphire Wasp Queen could still easily maintain the order of its subordinates and made them regroup in neat formation.
All of that happened very quickly, it might be only a few seconds.
From this, it could easily be seen that the Sapphire Wasp Queen was a very capable leader.
The Sapphire Wasp Queen angrily glared at Tang Li Xue with its huge insect eyes.
Tang Li Xue also glared back at the Sapphire Wasp Queen while smiling smugly, filled with confidence, and waving her slender finger to provoke them to come toward her.
The Sapphire Wasp Queen was fuming with rage at Tang Li Xue's provocation, and it swiftly flew toward Tang Li Xue along with the rest of its subordinates.
This time, they have learned their lesson and their formation was changed from one huge arrow into twelve smaller arrows.
Tang Li Xue turned around and flapped the [Phoenix Wings] to fly farther away from the Sapphire Wasp Queen and its armies of Sapphire Armored Wasps.
All of them were flying higher and higher while encircling the towering world tree!
The surrounding air seems to get thinner and thinner. Even their vision started to get restricted by the white mist.
"Looks like it is impossible for me to use [Spiral Sphere Bomb] with my current lousy control over Flame of Pride... Then just use the normal [Flame Bomb]!" Tang Li Xue muttered as she quickly decided.
Deep blue flames gathered on the top of Tang Li Xue's smooth snowy palm as she tried to condense the [Flame Bomb].
Tang Li Xue's current [Flame Bomb] was only as big as a tennis ball, but she did not try to add any compression power.
However, Tang Li Xue could sense that her current [Flame Bomb] should be as powerful as the previous [Spiral Sphere Bomb] before the Flame of Pride absorbed the source of Purple Ghost Flame.
"Not bad at all~! Go! Destroy those annoying insects for me!" Tang Li Xue encouraged as she threw the [Flame Bomb] toward the Sapphire Wasp Queen and its subordinates.
But Sapphire Wasp Queen and its subordinates were already prepared right now.
When they saw Tang Li Xue throwing something toward them, they were already spread around quickly while preparing to shoot their sharp stinger.
Tang Li Xue's [Flame Bomb] failed to hit anything this time, so it fell onto the ground and exploded just like that.
Tang Li Xue needed to slow down her speed to throw her [Flame Bomb] before, so it gave the Sapphire Wasp Queen and the armies of Sapphire Armored Wasps a chance to catch up to her.
d| The Sapphire Wasp Queen and the armies of Sapphire Armored Wasps shot their sharp stinger toward Tang Li Xue in unison when they managed to get close enough to her!
Tang Li Xue gnashed her pearl white teeth in annoyance while condensing a cloak of deep blue flame to protect herself from all their sharp stingers.
Tang Li Xue's deep-blue Flame of Pride wrapped her slim figure and burned all flying sharp stingers into nothingness!
Tang Li Xue was completely unharmed by their flying sharp stingers' attacks, but she also realized that she already consumed too much energy.
She might only be able to use the [Phoenix Cloak] two or three times and fly with [Phoenix Wings] for a few more minutes before she was completely exhausted.
She also quickly concluded that [Flame Bomb] and [Spiral Sphere Bomb] were really not suitable for the aerial battle.
Because it lacked speed so they could be avoided easily!
Tang Li Xue could hit them on the first time because the Sapphire Wasp Queen and the armies of Sapphire Armored Wasps did not expect her to have such a powerful technique.
'Damn it! [Flame Bomb] will not work anymore now?! So what should I do now?!' Tang Li Xue thought as her expression turned even more gloomy, then she started to think of an effective plan.
After all, Tang Li Xue still has a few other skills she has not used yet.
'How about [Fire Breath]? Meh... No, it will not work too. The attacking range is too short.' Tang Li Xue immediately rejected it.
'[Flame Arrow] is pretty good, but it can only hit one target... There are more than ten thousand Sapphire Armored Wasps! Do you really expect me to shoot more than ten thousand [Flame Arrows] to kill all of them one by one? No, no, no... I would have already run out of energy before I could do it! Rejected!' Tang Li Xue shook her head like a rattle drum.
When Tang Li Xue was in deep thinking mode, the Sapphire Wasp Queen and its subordinates started attacking Tang Li Xue again with their bullet-like sharp stinger!
But different from before, they did not shoot their sharp stingers in unison from all directions like before.
They took turns shooting their sharp stingers to slowly wear down Tang Li Xue instead!
Tang Li Xue had no choice other than to maintain her [Phoenix Cloak] to block their attack, but it also mean that she would be exhausted faster.
"Damn, these annoying insects! Do you really want to fight to the death against me?! Okay, if that is what you want! I will give it to you right away!" Tang Li Xue shouted at them in anger.
This time, Tang Li Xue had completely gone berserk.
Even the [Pure Sun Dragon] bloodline in her body and veins seemed to sense Tang Li Xue's rage and became searing hotter!
The deep blue Flame of Pride seems to become much docile and easier to control in that instant.
Tang Li Xue put her palms together and compressed her deep blue Flame of Pride into the space between her palms!
However, she did not plan to make [Flame Bomb] nor [Spiral Sphere Bomb] this time...
She planned to condense [Flame Arrow] but also added the power of compression and spin!
The compressed deep blue flames started to distort, but Tang Li Xue did not make it into a ball form.
Instead, she made them into a spiral form with the power of rotation like a small cyclone!
She wanted to create a compressed [Spiral Flame Arrow] that possessed extremely high speed and high explosive power!
