Chapter 510: Another White Lie!
Chapter 510: Another White Lie!
After Tang Li Xue went home, Instructor Mei Lan sat alone in the living room of her residence while thinking deeply.
Just when she took her cup of tea and wanted to drink the tea, a woman's cold sound echoed from behind her.
"Your scheming nature never changes. I am not really fond of that part of yours, Sister Lan."
"Sister Hongzhuang... Why did you eavesdrop on my conversation with Little Xue just now? Did you have no other things to do?" Instructor Mei Lan did not bother to turn her head. She calmly sipped her tea and asked with a flat tone.
Yes, the one who lived inside this residence with Instructor Mei Lan was Zuo Hongzhuang.
Zuo Hongzhuang should have been punished by the law department, but thanks to the authority of Zuo Hongzhuang's parents and Instructor Mei Lan's parents, she was only sentenced not to leave Myriad Foxes Academy for 30 years.
But Zuo Hongzhuang was still too embarrassed to go back home and live together with her parents again.
In the end, Zuo Hongzhuang decided to only send her daughter back to live with her parents while she lived with Instructor Mei Lan here.
Zuo Hongzhuang did not answer Instructor Mei Lan's question.
Zuo Hongzhuang took a cup of tea and sat beside Instructor Mei Lan while asking with a displeased tone: "Why did you lie to your little student?"
Instructor Mei Lan rolled her eyes and replied: "When did I lie to Little Xue? I only said the one behind it should be someone who holds very high authority in Immortal Sword Sect. I never said that Elder Yang is the one who did it from the very beginning."
Zuo Hongzhuang sneered and muttered in a mocking tone: "You are always like this. Playing word games and mind games to confuse anyone's mind. You also did the same thing to me too before! Sowed the seed of doubt and deceit! I almost broke up with my husband because of you back then! If it was not for..."
"I did it for your own good before! Even this time, I also did it for Little Xue's good! If you listened to my suggestion before, you will not end up pathetically like this!" Instructor Mei Lan shouted angrily.
Instructor Mei Lan glared coldly at Zuo Hongzhuang and uttered in a cold tone: "Listen! Do not interfere in Little Xue's affair! I have no right to meddle in your love affair before, so I did not stop you when you elope with that human. But if you dare to lay your hands in Little Xue's affair this time... then I will never forgive you!"
Zuo Hongzhuang fell silent for a few minutes when she heard Instructor Mei Lan's cold words.
With Fox Race's precise information and Instructor Mei Lan's high intelligence, it was not hard to deduce that the true culprit who hired the assassins was actually Elder Yang's fiance.
But Instructor Mei Lan did not tell her deduction to Tang Li Xue.
On the contrary, she used her deceptive words to cleverly steer Tang Li Xue's mind to think that Elder Yang was the culprit instead.
The reason for Instructor Mei Lan to do that was also simple, it was because she did not like Tang Li Xue getting too close to any human, especially Elder Yang from Immortal Sword Sect.
Of course, Instructor Mei Lan would not blatantly say it to Tang Li Xue.
She already learned a lot from Zuo Hongzhuang's previous affair.
Usually, the more you try to forbid someone to do something, the more that person wanted to do it.
So, rather than forbidding or forcing them not to do it, this kind of soft deception would work the best.
"Why do you need to go that far? Little Xue also has every right to determine her choice. You should just tell her the truth." Zuo Hongzhuang tried to persuade Instructor Mei Lan.
However, Instructor Mei Lan's expression turned even colder as she replied: "I am her teacher, so I have the right to help her to determine the right choice. Little Xue is different from you. She is a genius. Her talent and potential are much higher than mine. So, I don't want her to ruin her future by making the wrong choice like you."
"You should just think about the future of yourself and your daughter instead. Uncle Zuo is still chill and indifferent as usual, but Aunt Zuo seems to not like your daughter very much." Instructor Mei Lan said as she stood up and entered her bedroom.
Zuo Hongzhuang shook her head in disappointment and murmured sadly: "You are still too overprotective of your students as usual..."
Instructor Mei Lan might look gentle and easy to talk with, but if it was something involving her students, she usually became extremely stubborn and acted like a tigress protecting her cubs.
With Instructor Mei Lan's sight, she could easily judge that Elder Yang was a one-in-thousand-years genius.
Right now, he might be only a small snake in the pond, but someday in the future, he would certainly enter the ocean and become a true dragon.
In short, Elder Yang would certainly become one of the strong pillars of the Human Race in the future.
Tang Li Xue was also a genius on par with Elder Yang or might be even better than him in Instructor Mei Lan's opinion.
If Tang Li Xue did not die early, Instructor Mei Lan dared to guarantee that she would certainly become one of the fox race's leaders in the future.
So, Tang Li Xue and Elder Yang were not destined to be together, since both of them were the future leader from the two opposite races!
Actually, Instructor Mei Lan already had a thought to kill Elder Yang before he matured and became a huge trouble for Beast Race in the future.
The reason why Instructor Mei Lan did not make any move to kill Elder Yang until now was because the heaven's chosen like this Elder Yang usually has protection from the heaven itself.
Making rash moves to kill this kind of person would have the opposite effect instead. He would not die but grow stronger even faster. Moreover, there were always several Nascent Soul Stage Guardian Elders from Immortal Sword Sect that always secretly protected him.
Inside her bedroom, Instructor Mei Lan muttered with a cold expression: "But it is all right... I have also prepared a trump card to deal with him."
Instructor Mei Lan thought Hei Yinghao as her sound drifted with the wind: "No, he is not ready yet... He still needs more polishing before he can compete with that human."
d| Tang Li Xue entered her bedroom and jumped onto the top of her bed.
She folded her legs and sat on her soft bed in the lotus position, while Yaya sat on the pillow and patiently guard Tang Li Xue since Yaya was worried that an accident like before would happen again.
Tang Li Xue took a deep breath and muttered with a firm tone: "Let's begin now~! System~!"
[Do you want to comprehend Four Mythical Beast Art (White Tiger) with the cost of 210 Deity Coins? Yes/No]
Tang Li Xue sighed in relief and muttered: "Thankfully, I still have more than 800 Deity Coins."
Tang Li Xue took a deep breath and chose 'YES' without any hesitation.
The system reduced 210 Deity Coins from her leaving only more than 600 Deity Coins, and the complete knowledge of the White Tiger part in [Four Mythical Beast Art] flooded into her mind.
Tang Li Xue instantly comprehended all of the White Tiger chapter parts as if the fog which covered another part of [Four Mythical Beast Art] in her mind had been cleared out.
Tang Li Xue poured out a small hill of spirit stones from her space pouch again like before and put them right in front of her.
"Sigh... My accumulated spirit stones are getting less and less. Umm, well... Although, I got most of them for free from Elder Yang's spatial ring before." Tang Li Xue subconsciously said, but her mood became gloomy again when she recalled Elder Yang's 'betrayal' again.
"All right, that is enough! This is the time to break through to Foundation Establishment Stage, not the time to be sad!" Tang Li Xue murmured as she patted her cheek to cheer herself up.
[Your cultivation had reached the limit of the Acupuncture Opening Stage. Do you want to break through to Foundation Establishment Stage? Yes/No]
Tang Li Xue closed her topaz blue eyes and started to run the White Tiger Chapter of [Four Mythical Beast Art] while saying in her mind: 'YES!'
Previously, the Crimson Phoenix chapter must be cultivated in a very hot place full of fire and Yang elements, but Tang Li Xue skipped that requirement because she was assisted by her Flame of Pride.
The Black Tortoise chapter must be cultivated in a place with so much water like in the middle of the lake, ocean, or river, but Tang Li Xue skipped this requirement too because she has her own martial soul, the [Golden Winged Serpent], who helped her.
It was the same this time too...
The White Tiger chapter must be cultivated in a place with a lot of wind like a place near a storm or typhoon, but there was Yaya here to help Tang Li Xue, right? So, there was no need for Tang Li Xue to worry about this requirement too.
The last chapter of the [Four Mythical Beast Art], Azure Dragon chapter, would be a bit difficult though since Tang Li Xue needs to cultivate in a place with a lot of lightning later... But that was the problem when Tang Li Xue break through to Core Formation Stage in the future.
