Chapter 494: Fierce Hunt!
Chapter 494: Fierce Hunt!
While [Golden Winged Serpent] was flying toward the edge of the small town, Tang Li Xue quickly put Little Seventh down and checked her condition again.
"Waaaahhh~! A golden dragon! So cool! It looks so impressive! Is this golden dragon Big Sister Xue's pet?" Little Seventh excitedly said as she squatted down and touched the [Golden Winged Serpent]'s golden body and scales.
Tang Li Xue was relieved that Little Seventh was completely all right and energetic as usual.
However, Tang Li Xue quickly panicked when she saw Little Seventh run back and forth happily on [Golden Winged Serpent]'s back.
If Little Seventh slipped and fell down from this height, she would certainly be smashed into meat paste!
Tang Li Xue quickly grabbed Little Seventh and held her tightly.
"Little girl, can you act a bit calmer and cautious? Sigh... forget it." Tang Li Xue wanted to scold Little Seventh a bit, but she suddenly remembered that Little Seventh was an abnormal little girl.
Before Tang Li Xue's [Golden Winged Serpent] could fly far, the other veteran assassin's team already caught up with them!
They were riding their own flying treasure such as flying swords, flying disks, flying chariots, and so on.
Those several assassins took out some kind of chain weapon and threw them toward Tang Li Xue's [Golden Winged Serpent]!
CLANG~!!! CLANG~!!! CLANG~!!! CLANG~!!!
With the [Golden Winged Serpent]'s huge golden body, it was not easy to dodge all of those chain weapons thrown by several assassins.
Several long-chain weapons managed to entangle [Golden Winged Serpent]'s wings and tail.
When the several chain weapons were pulled violently by those several assassins, the [Golden Winged Serpent] was forced to stop flying forward!
The [Golden Winged Serpent] roared angrily and started to resist by writhing and twisting its huge golden body.
Even Tang Li Xue and Little Seventh almost fell from the [Golden Winged Serpent]'s back.
Thankfully, Tang Li Xue already held Little Seventh and grabbed tightly at the [Golden Winged Serpent]'s golden scales.
Tang Li Xue put Little Seventh on her back again while saying: "Hold on tight, Little Seventh! Big Sister is going to try to cut those chains!"
Little Seventh obediently hugged Tang Li Xue tightly from behind like a koala.
Tang Li Xue hurriedly jumped onto [Golden Winged Serpent]'s wings to cut those binding chains, but those several assassins already ran along those chains and jumped onto [Golden Winged Serpent]'s back too!
However, the [Golden Winged Serpent] was shining with golden light all of a sudden!
Who knew that Tang Li Xue suddenly changed her strategy and changed her [Golden Winged Serpent]'s form into a pair of golden gauntlets!
"I got you, idiot assassins~! Hello, idiot assassins~! Goodbye, idiot assassins~!" Tang Li Xue shouted while smiling smugly.
The surrounding rainwater converged on the several assassins and trapped them in the [Water Prison]!
Then Tang Li Xue followed it up with another attack to push them far away!
[Water Cannon Blast]!
The highly compressed water cannon sprayed toward those trapped assassins!
Those trapped assassins flew very far away across the small town and mountain just like their previous comrades.
Killing Core Formation Stage cultivators was surely not easy, so throwing them far away like this was Tang Li Xue's only solution for now.
Tang Li Xue's slender body also fell down rapidly, but she quickly used [Energy Manipulation] to create a flying disk under her feet.
After that, Tang Li Xue drove it to fly again toward the edge of the small town.
Unfortunately, another team of veteran assassins already blocked right in front of her.
Tang Li Xue's expression became very solemn as she scolded in an angry tone: "Damn it! They are so well prepared!"
Tang Li Xue had no choice other than to re-summon her perfect copy this time, so they could fight together against these veteran assassins.
"Err... ten, twelve, fifteen, twenty... Damn, there are so many of them here! Can we really win against them?" Tang Li Xue's perfect copy asked with a pessimist tone.
Tang Li Xue rolled her topaz blue eyes and replied: "We don't need to win. We just need to survive and escape from them."
"Then that is the easiest thing to do! Why don't we..." Perfect copy blurted out confidently, but she immediately shut up when she glanced at Little Seventh.
Yes, Tang Li Xue could easily get out of these assassins' chase with her divine abilities, but it was different for Little Seventh.
While Tang Li Xue was bickering with her perfect copy, the assassin's team received another piece of information from their teammates through their communication talisman: "Report! The target seems to be immune to poison. Her martial soul can control water, and it can also heal wounds rapidly. Be careful!"
"Okay, we get it! So, the only way to kill her is to behead her." The assassin's team leader replied before he hung up the communication connection.
Tang Li Xue already secretly overheard their conversation with her [Extrasensory Perception], and she whispered to her perfect copy: "Get ready! They are starting to get more serious now!"
The perfect copy nodded at Tang Li Xue as she glared cautiously at the assassin's team.
Under the heavy rain, Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy were flying head to head against the team consisting of more than twenty veteran assassins!
Those twenty veteran assassins immediately surrounded Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy while unsheathing their weapons.
'I will leave the defense to you! I will only focus on offense!' Tang Li Xue communicated with her perfect copy through their mental connection.
When those veteran assassins brandished their weapons toward Tang Li Xue, her perfect copy suddenly spun while holding the condensed white sword.
[Sword Art of Mystic Harmony], Repelling Spins!
BANG~!!! BANG~!!! BANG~!!! BANG~!!! BANG~!!!
After the perfect copy repelled the assassins' attack, the real Tang Li Xue shouted as she jumped forward: "Little Seventh, quickly close your eyes!"
As Little Seventh followed Tang Li Xue's order and closed her eyes, the real Tang Li Xue swiftly took this chance to launch a fatal attack on those assassins!
Tang Li Xue's palm which was covered by golden gauntlets instantly moved with unbelievable speed.
No one could see the movement of Tang Li Xue's palm, even these veteran assassins with more than 50 years of experience.
PUFF~!!! PUFF~!!! PUFF~!!! PUFF~!!! PUFF~!!! PUFF~!!!
The heads of six veteran assassins were cut by Tang Li Xue's palm and flew away from their body.
But other assassins swiftly launched another attack on Tang Li Xue without any fear or hesitation!
However, Tang Li Xue's perfect copy was already prepared for that...
[Sword Art of Mystic Harmony], Redirection Flow!
Meanwhile, the real Tang Li Xue simultaneously launched a counterattack against those assassins!
[Sword Art of Mystic Harmony], Tracing Counter!
PUFF~!!! PUFF~!!! PUFF~!!!
Unfortunately, those assassins were already very cautious, so they barely managed to parry Tang Li Xue's counterattack this time.
But Tang Li Xue's [Tracing Counter] at least managed to wound them.
Those veteran black-clothed assassins wanted to surround Tang Li Xue and attack her from all sides. They planned to use the principle: 'two hands would never be able to defend against their forty hands'.
Unfortunately, they never thought that Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy could cooperate too well, so their plan backfired instead.
Well... Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy were basically connected like right eye and left eye or right arm and left arm, so how could they cooperate badly?!
"Change of strategy! Just bind them all first!" The leader of the assassin's team ordered.
The rest of the black-clothed assassins took out their chain weapons from their spatial ring and threw them toward Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy.
"Tsk, another old dirty trick!" The perfect copy clicked her tongue in annoyance while waving her white sword to block their chain weapons.
CLANG~! CLANG~! CLANG~! CLANG~!
But their chain weapons entangled the perfect copy's white sword along with her arm and neck instead.
Even the real Tang Li Xue also got bound with her perfect copy along with Little Seventh piggybacked on her back.
Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy tried to struggle by breaking or cutting the chains, but it was all futile.
It seems these chains were specially made to bind a powerful assassination target like her.
"Finish them all now!" The leader shouted as he charged toward Tang Li Xue with a saber in his hands.
Both Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy gritted their teeth and activated their defensive divine ability, [Golden Body], plus equipment skill from her [Arcane Tunic], [Arcane Barrier]!
(Arcane Barrier: Create a spell shield that reduces the damage taken by half. Duration: 30 Seconds. Cooldown: 20 minutes.)
CLANG~!!! CLANG~!!! CLANG~!!! CLANG~!!!
All of the assassins slashed repeatedly at Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy, but they only managed to leave superficial wounds.
However, when one of their attacks almost landed on Little Seventh behind Tang Li Xue...
Tang Li Xue's rage was instantly ignited as golden flames burned inside her topaz blue eyes!
Even the [Pure Sun Dragon] bloodline in her body seems to be accidentally awakened again!
Tang Li Xue's shouted in anger: "DON'T YOU DARE... TO TOUCH LITTLE SEVENTH~!!!"
[Moon Shattering Strike]!
Tang Li Xue's vitality energy suddenly exploded outward shattered all of the chains!
Even the nearby assassins exploded into blood mist in that instant!
When Tang Li Xue awoke from her angry state, there was no more assassin around her for now.
Tang Li Xue sighed in relief, but she also deeply realized that Little Seventh would be in mortal danger as long as Little Seventh followed her.
