Chapter 517: Great Explosion!
Chapter 517: Great Explosion!
'What are you afraid of?! Nothing has happened yet! Just stay there for a few more minutes to observe the divine abilities of that black fox and blind white fox! Who knows if we can find their weakness later, and we can use it to defeat them!' Tang Li Xue tried to encourage her perfect copy.
dαs| Her perfect copy did not even have spare time to reply as the remains of those four black foxes were suddenly swelling bigger and bigger!
The blind white fox gritted its fangs and kept controlling its three silver swords to mercilessly cut the remains of the four black foxes again and again!
Its three silver swords were also moving faster and faster; even Tang Li Xue's perfect copy could no longer see the three silver swords. She could only see three silver lights flashing in the criss-cross pattern.
It was really too scary since Tang Li Xue herself could no longer avoid or block the relentless assault from the current three silver swords if they attacked her right now.
But despite all of those relentless three swords' attacks, the remains of the black fox still kept swelling instead!
The size of the black fox's remains was already swelling as big as a three-story building, and the extreme danger sensed by Tang Li Xue's perfect copy became even more apparent.
'Uhhh... I really think you should just...' The perfect copy wanted to complain to Tang Li Xue again, but before she could finish her words...
Those remains of the black fox actually exploded extremely violently!
[(Sun And Moon Aegis) resisted a deadly blow for your perfect copy! (1/3)]
The perfect copy was thrown off tens of meters away until she crashed onto the nearby mountain.
Thanks to the [Sun And Moon Aegis] protection, she was only lightly wounded and bruised everywhere on her fox body; if not for that, she would already be turned into ashes by now.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy could be sure that the blind white fox should already die under that great explosion since there was only a huge crater at the place where they had fought just now.
"Damn it~! That abomination black fox is truly insane! It even dares to do something like a suicide bomb to bring us down with it!" The perfect copy muttered angrily as she limply walked toward the place where they fought before.
But then, her [Extraordinary Perception] sensed something in the air...
The burnt remains of the black fox actually started to congregate together in the air!
"Holysh*t~! That abomination black fox is still not dead yet!" The perfect copy exclaimed in surprise and disbelief.
'But it seems that black fox still needs some time to form itself back to normal... What if you use [Swap] and come back here, then burn it with your Flame of Pride? You should be able to kill it, right?' The perfect copy gave her suggestion to Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue rolled her topaz blue eyes and mercilessly threw several questions to her perfect copy:
'What if it swells and explodes again like before when I try to burn it with my Flame of Pride later?'
'So what if you managed to kill it? Do you even know if that was really its true actual body there?'
'What if its divine ability was something similar to our [Twin Moons], and its real body waited somewhere safe when its explosive clones fought against the other foxes under its control?'
'What if that crazy black fox holds a grudge against us because we kill its explosive clones and send more of its explosive clones to hunt us later?'
The perfect copy: "....."
Tang Li Xue sighed and added: 'Our task right now is not to fight for the hegemony of true predators like the other foxes. We only need to survive this first phase intact.'
'Then... what should I do now? Should I wait for that black fox to recover and stall for more time or retreat from here right now?' The perfect copy asked in bewilderment.
Tang Li Xue thought for a few moments and decided to re-summon the perfect copy by her side.
There was nothing more to do there since Tang Li Xue was already fled quite far away, and the persistent blind white fox who kept chasing after her before had already died.
Of course, both Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy were still in the [Ethereal Form] now, and their [Art of Concealment] was also still covering up all of their traces and aura.
But running blindly like this was also clearly not a good decision...
There were too many powerful foes on this Treasure Island, and Tang Li Xue would certainly bump into another one of them if she kept running blindly like this...
Tang Li Xue planned to quickly find Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao before, so they could fight together or protect each other easily.
However, Tang Li Xue quickly realized that her plan was unrealistic for now, and there were several reasons for that.
First, Tang Li Xue found out that she could not fly too high on this Treasure Island, only a few hundred meters at the highest, as if there were a prohibition covering the entire island.
Second, Tang Li Xue also discovered when she flew that this Treasure Island was actually very vast, like a continent!
Tang Li Xue finally knew why the true strongest fox king, the Apex Predator, would need many of its vassals to collect the precious treasures or cultivation resources for it in the second phase.
It was because the Apex Predator might be exhausted to death if it collected the precious treasures or cultivation resources one by one alone on this vast Treasure Island.
After she found a quite safe zone in the jungle, Tang Li Xue decided to stop running blindly and hid in the hole of the giant tree to rest.
At least her [Extraordinary Perception] sensed that there were much fewer powerful foxes nearby here for now.
"Should we just hide quietly here until the first phase is over?" The perfect copy asked curiously.
Tang Li Xue shook her furry fox head and replied: "It is impossible for us to hide in one place for a long time. The only way for us to survive is to rely on our [Extraordinary Perception] to avoid powerful foxes before we bump into them."
Yes, Tang Li Xue planned to run separately with her perfect copy while each of them would rely on their [Extraordinary Perception] to avoid facing powerful foes.
So, Tang Li Xue could also use [Swap] to switch positions with her perfect copy if she were to somehow accidentally run into a powerful opponent that she could not defeat or escape from it.
But before that, Tang Li Xue wanted to make some talismans first by using this tree bark and her own blood as the materials.
Her golden [Inscription Pen] was stored in her system storage, so unlike her space pouch or spatial ring, she could bring it with her to this Treasure Island.
Unfortunately, no matter how good or perfect the plan was, sometimes it could not keep up with the everchanging situation.
Before Tang Li Xue could even have enough time to rest or make some talismans…
A pillar of golden light suddenly appeared near the giant tree where Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy were currently resting!
'Wha... What the hell is happening?! Are there any foxes attacking us?!" Tang Li Xue spoke as she put her battle stance.
"Nope, it does not seem so. But what is that pillar of golden light?" The perfect copy muttered with a curious tone as she activated her [Ethereal Form] and [Art of Concealment] again and jumped onto the top of the giant tree to observe the pillar of golden light.
"It is actually only a few hundred meters from us! Should we check what it is?" The perfect copy asked for Tang Li Xue's opinion.
"No way~! I think I know what is happening! That golden pillar of light should be the location where the precious treasure will be born! This is not good for us! We should quickly run away from here!" Tang Li Xue muttered in panic.
Tang Li Xue also hastily activated her [Ethereal Form] and [Art of Concealment], then jumped down from the giant tree's hole.
Both Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy simultaneously used [Wings of Freedom] active skill to increase their speed even more as they quickly fled in two different directions.
But they were still one step too late since many foxes in that jungle area already noticed the pillar of golden light and quickly headed toward it.
It only took a few minutes for Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy to bump against powerful foxes that could still sense them while their [Ethereal Form] and [Art of Concealment] were still activated.
Tang Li Xue was intercepted by a Purple Lightning Fox, while her perfect copy was attacked by a Green Fox with wood control type divine ability.
'This damn bloodthirsty foxes~! If you want to get that precious treasure, just go and get it now! Why the hell are you blocking and attacking me instead?!' Tang Li Xue angrily thought while gnashing her fangs.
Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy did not realize that these foxes thought that both of them already got the precious treasure which was why the two of them ran away sneakily in the opposite direction.
Tang Li Xue did not want to fight with them for too long and attract more powerful opponents like before, so she decided to use one of her newly acquired abilities, [Tiger Roaring Slash]!
