Chapter 522: Perfect Hiding Place!
Chapter 522: Perfect Hiding Place!
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy was actually not smug or overconfident at all.
In fact, she was deliberately acting like that to provoke the gray fox, so it would forget the unconscious Tang Li Xue.
The angrier the gray fox at her, the more it would focus on killing the perfect copy and ignoring the real Tang Li Xue.
For the perfect copy, the worst situation was the gray fox realized that she was only a clone and focused on attacking the unconscious Tang Li Xue instead.
If the gray fox somehow landed a deadly blow toward the unconscious Tang Li Xue, her [Damage Transfer] skill would instantly get triggered, and she, as Tang Li Xue's perfect copy, would get killed instead as her replacement.
If she died, it would take nine nights for her to get resurrected or for the [Twin Moons] to finish the cooldown... Well... In short, Tang Li Xue would certainly already got eliminated from this Foxes Hunting Festival by then.
As the perfect copy already predicted, the gray fox's face turned red in anger while growling at the perfect copy.
It activated its [Spider Scorpion Transformation] again and changed back into its bulky insect-like form!
The huge gray fox spurted out a lot of thin webs from its mouth toward the perfect copy while charging toward it!
The perfect copy was not flustered. She also spurted out a lot of thin webs from her mouth to counter the huge gray fox.
Their thin webs hit each other, but those thin webs still could not stop both of their movement until they crashed into each other violently.
The huge gray fox took a dozen steps back. It staggered and felt a bit dizzy, while Tang Li Xue's perfect copy only took a half step back.
Thanks to the incredible effect of passive divine abilities such as: [Super Speed] and [Sun And Moon Aegis], the perfect copy held so much advantage against the huge gray fox under the same form!
The perfect copy immediately realized that the true power of [Mirror of Moon] could only be fully utilized if her overall stats were above her opponent.
Imagine if you and your opponent had the same ability, but your opponent could only deal 1 damage to you while you could deal 10 damage to it.
Yes, this was the true might of the [Mirror of Moon]!
As long as Tang Li Xue has higher overall stats or strength than her opponents, there would be almost no way for her opponent to counter her [Mirror of Moon].
Because any ability copied by [Mirror of Moon] would be re-adjusted according to the user's strength or stats!
Of course, something like divine abilities with extremely high difficulty to control or divine abilities that needs combination like what Instructor Mei Lan's had was a completely different story…
The perfect copy started to attack using her three stinger tails, but different from the previous huge gray fox's rapid random attack, she incorporated something extra into her attacks!
[Supreme Speed Sword Style], Rapid Quick Slashes!
BANG~!!! BANG~!!! BANG~!!! BANG~!!! BANG~!!!
The perfect copy's three poisonous stinger tails were dancing swiftly as they stabbed into the huge gray fox's fatal points like its head and neck!
The huge gray fox also used its three stinger tails to attack the perfect copy in anger.
However, the perfect copy swung her three tails to parry all of its attacks!
[Sword Art of Mystic Harmony], Redirection Flow!
None of the huge gray fox's attacks managed to land on the perfect copy's body, while the perfect copy was already prepared to counterattack again.
[Sword Art of Mystic Harmony], Tracing Counter!
PUFF~!!! PUFF~!!! PUFF~!!!
The perfect copy's three stinger tails stabbed deeply onto the huge gray fox's front legs!
"AAAAOOOOOUUUUWWWWW~!!!" The huge gray fox roared in pain as its body was covered with black wounds.
Unfortunately, the poison from the perfect copy's three stinger tails was not that effective against the huge gray fox, maybe because it was still in the [Spider Scorpion Transformation], so its body has high poison resistance against the stinger's poison.
The huge gray fox quickly realized that it could not win against Tang Li Xue's perfect copy at this rate, so it hastily changed its strategy.
The huge gray fox canceled its [Spider Scorpion Transformation] and returned to its normal fox form.
The perfect copy immediately took this chance to attack the gray fox again!
[Supreme Speed Sword Style], Flash Draw!
One of her three stinger tails vanished as it slashed toward the gray fox at extremely high speed!
The perfect copy's attack created a five meters deep crevice in the ground!
But the gray fox had already disappeared from there...
The gray fox easily dodged the perfect copy's extremely fast attack because it activated its another divine ability!
[Sonic Bat Transformation]!
Unfortunately, Tang Li Xue's perfect copy failed to use her [Mirror of the Moon] on time to copy this divine ability since she was still in the [Spider Scorpion Transformation] right now.
If she wanted to copy this gray fox's second divine ability, she needed to cancel the [Spider Scorpion Transformation] first and activate her [Mirror of the Moon] right when the gray fox used it.
The gray fox did not plan to continue to fight against Tang Li Xue's perfect copy anymore since it was already injured pretty badly right now.
The gray fox turned into a gray flash as it flew swiftly toward the south and disappeared from the perfect copy's view in only a few seconds.
It looks like this [Sonic Bat Transformation] was the life-saving divine ability of the gray fox since the flying speed was extremely fast that it might be even faster than Tang Li Xue's flying speed in [Wings of Freedom]'s buff before.
"Tsk~! Such a slippery little bast*rd!" The perfect copy muttered in annoyance.
But she did not bother to chase after the gray fox since she still needed to protect the unconscious Tang Li Xue and bring her to a safer place.
The perfect copy canceled her [Spider Scorpion Transformation] while approaching the unconscious Tang Li Xue nearby.
Then she used her three tails to wrap the unconscious Tang Li Xue and put her onto the back.
Just when the perfect copy wanted to continue her journey, she suddenly stopped and pondered carefully: "Err... Which direction should I take? Wait a minute... maybe I should just take a rest here? It should be safe here, right? Since the previous horrible rain probably would already wipe most of the foxes in this area."
"But what if some foxes still managed to survive like that previous ugly gray fox and pester me again? What if that ugly gray fox comes back here after it recovers all of its wounds to take revenge? No, I must look for a safer place than here! But... Where?" Tang Li Xue's perfect copy hesitated again and again.
Then her topaz blue eyes suddenly shone brightly in excitement like a pair of glittering stars when a flash of inspiration came into her mind.
"Hahahaha~! I know the nearest safe place! I bet no one will find us in these few days!" Tang Li Xue's perfect copy happily said as she activated her [Spider Scorpion Transformation] again.
Her small furry figure immediately swelled bigger and bigger, then covered with the thick silvery white carapace.
Tang Li Xue's long eyelashes trembled slightly as she slowly opened her topaz blue eyes.
Tang Li Xue slowly stood up with her four legs while yawning, then she lazily stretched her body like a cat.
"Why is it so dark here? Is it already night?" Tang Li Xue muttered in a hoarse voice since her throat felt very dry right now.
"Stop daydreaming! It is noon right now! You already sleep for more than a day!" The perfect copy rolled her eyes and reminded Tang Li Xue.
Their mind was connected with each other, so it was impossible if Tang Li Xue did not know what she knew.
"Oh, right... It is because we are still in the underground right now..." Tang Li Xue muttered with a lazy tone.
Yes, the perfect copy got the idea from the gray fox because it escaped from the horrible rain through an underground tunnel it made by itself.
So, the perfect copy used the [Spider Scorpion Transformation] to dig the underground tunnel too and brought the unconscious Tang Li Xue to hide here together.
The perfect copy also carefully covered the entrance where she had started to dig before, so no one could find them until now.
She also dug pretty far, maybe more than 50 meters, so no one could sense their breath, presence, or aura from above the ground.
Actually, Tang Li Xue's perfect copy wanted to dig deeper until more than 100 meters, but there seems a wall under the ground that prevented her from digging deeper.
"So, one day has already passed?! That is great! It means the cooldown of [Sun And Moon Aegis]'s effect is already over! Each of us can resist another three deadly blows today!" Tang Li Xue said with a relieved tone mixed with a bit of happiness.
[Mirror of the Moon]'s power if anyone forgot about it since it was Tang Li Xue's first divine ability:
[Mirror of the Moon]: The user can copy one of any skill/divine ability/martial art that the user sees from any target.
(Note 1: The previously copied ability would be erased if the user copy more than one ability, and only the latest ability would be saved)
(Note 2: The ability that the user copy would be strengthened/weakened according to the user's current strength/stats)
Both Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy could use [Mirror of the Moon], so they could copy 2 different abilities now. Both of them could use these 2 different abilities since they were connected to each other.
Something like the bird's flight ability could not be copied by [Mirror of the Moon] since the bird needs its wings to fly.
In short, [Mirror of the Moon] could not copy any ability that needs some special organ to use it, like the fish's underwater breathing ability need fins.
That was the reason why Tang Li Xue's perfect copy also could not copy the huge gray fox's ability to make invisible webs at first, but she finally could copy its [Spider Scorpion Transformation] when the gray fox canceled its divine ability.
