92 Chapter 92: Severed Fate!
Tang Li Xue hesitated for a while, should she try to find Xiao Hei first or find some food first?
She was extremely starving right now.
She did not eat any food and sip any drinks for more than one week!
In the end, she decided to find Xiao Hei first so he could cook some delicious roasted meats for her.
Tang Li Xue quickly activated her [Ethereal Form] and her tiny figure immediately vanished into thin air.
She realized that she was currently in the middle of an unknown forest full of unpredictable dangers so traveling with her [Ethereal Form] was the safest option.
'But come to think of it... I don't have any single clue about where I am at or Xiao Hei's whereabouts... so how the hell I could find him?! Sigh... Let's search for some preys and water first before I am starving to death!'
Tang Li Xue decided to proceed carefully even with her [Ethereal Form] activated since it still did not mean she was completely safe even if her [Ethereal Form] grant her the perfect stealth ability. She learned it in a hard way when she was facing fatty uncle before.
With her [Ethereal Form], Tang Li Xue did not have any problem moving around the lush forest even with countless giant trees and dense bushes covered her way.
Her tiny transparent body easily passed through all obstacles whether rocks, trees, or bushes.
'Sigh... I have Flame of Pride as my offensive power, [Ethereal Form] as stealth movement skill, and [Golden Body] as defensive skill. But I really need some skills that can help me see far away through all of these obstructions... so I can find my prey or Xiao Hei easier.'
Tang Li Xue frowned when her sensitive nose strengthened by [Enhanced Sense of Smell] skill smelled the pungent smell of blood.
She wavered whatever she should check it or not... But this forest was also so strange...
It was too silent and she did not see any beast or bird until now!
She has a really bad feeling about this... It was like when she was about to face a strong hidden big boss in the RPG game!
Tang Li Xue laughed at herself. She was not an indecisive person... errr... indecisive beast like this before when she was in Moonlight Forest and she did not even have [Ethereal Form] at that time.
But it also proved that she had grown more mature than before and she also had higher danger awareness after experienced several dangerous adventures in Xiao Hei's sect.
Tang Li Xue decided to summon out her martial soul, the [Flying Golden Fish], and ordered it to scout ahead of her.
When Tang Li Xue was still in her [Ethereal Form], her martial soul, the [Flying Golden Fish] was also in [Ethereal Form] too since it counted as one of her body parts like her limbs.
For the first time, Tang Li Xue thanked her [Flying Golden Fish]'s martial soul for having [Flight] as one of its unique skills.
Usually, any martial soul could only hover above their owner's head but thanks to its [Flight] unique skill, Tang Li Xue's [Flying Golden Fish] can fly freely on the air like a bird!
Of course, Mo Chonglin's [Twin Horned Thunder Python] did not need [Flight] unique skill to move on the sky since it can dash around using its thunder power.
Tang Li Xue found that her [Flying Golden Fish] martial soul could not be separated too far from her or it would automatically unsummoned by itself and she must summon it out once again.
Scouting 100 meters ahead was her [Flying Golden Fish] limit but at least, she could also see what [Flying Golden Fish] see, it was working like her second eyes.
Tang Li Xue could also order it to fly 100 meters higher from her so she could see farther ahead but unfortunately, she cannot do it here since the giant trees and tall bushes were too dense so it obstructed her vision.
Tang Li Xue instructed her [Flying Golden Fish] to check the source of that pungent smell of blood.
She was so starving right now that she started to imagine this pungent smell of blood as the fragrant aroma of delicious roasted meat.
Then her sneaky [Flying Golden Fish] martial soul managed to peek... a giant beast under the huge tree feasted upon a large black tiger!
Tang Li Xue shuddered slightly in fear when she felt a terrible pressure emitted from the giant beast through her [Flying Golden Fish] martial soul.
She also judged that dead large black tiger as a [Uncommon] grade demonic beast, one grade higher than her!
Tang Li Xue ordered her [Flying Golden Fish] martial soul through her mind but that giant beast already noticed that someone peeked at it eating from behind and it slowly turned its gigantic head toward the [Flying Golden Fish] direction.
A terrifying pair of red eyes full of murderous intent stared at back at Tang Li Xue's [Flying Golden Fish] martial soul.
Tang Li Xue was scared out of her wits when she saw that pair of bloodshot eyes through her martial soul's vision.
"Eh... This feeling... Little lass, is that you?" The giant beast with the pair of chilling red eyes asked.
Tang Li Xue: '.....'
Tang Li Xue dashed out toward that huge beast while turning off her [Ethereal Form] then she used all of her strength to kick that huge beast out of anger and embarrassment!
'As*hole! Scared me to death!'
Well... it was actually Tang Li Xue's lost mount... err... lost friend, the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard!
Unfortunately, her kick could only hurt her own feet since Red-Eyes Winged Lizard's scales were too thick but it did not stop her to keep kicking the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard.
"Hahaha... It is really you, little lass! Hei... Hei... Hei... Stop it! I know you miss me and you are really scared of that fatty Mo but you know I am not his match without my vitality energy or my Nirvana Flame so I eat some meat here to regain some of my strength then I will immediately run back to help you! I swear this is my original plan but since you are already here, it means I did not need to run back there anymore!" The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard tried to explain why it was slacking here.
'HUMPH!' Tang Li Xue turned her head away angrily.
"You... You are still angry? It's not my fault, okay?! That fatty Mo is too cunning! He forcefully teleported me away using the teleportation array on that warship! Sigh... Hei, do you want to try this tiger meat? This meat is so nutritious! Here eat it slowly..." The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard cut the black tiger's meat into tiny pieces easily with its sharp giant claw and put it in front of Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue drooled when she saw the tiger raw meat in front of her. She impatiently pounced toward the tiger raw meat and bit it using her [Rip] skill.
Tang Li Xue was too starving to care about raw meat or roasted meat now.
"Eat slowly... there is still a lot of it." The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard laughed and said to Tang Li Xue then it also continued its feast.
The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard and Tang Li Xue finished the entire huge black tiger's meat in a few minutes only leaving its bones behind and both of them lying lazily on the grassy ground with bloating stomach.
'Sigh... Now I only need to find where Xiao Hei is! It would be good if this fake dragon can help me but with its hatred toward humans, I doubt it will help me to find Xiao Hei... Oh well, I will find him by myself then!'
Tang Li Xue tried to communicate with the fake dragon using her gesture like before.
'You wait here... I will go find Xiao Hei...'
"You still want to find that evil human? That is too dangerous! Don't go! You are already very lucky you can escape! You will die if that fatty Mo finds you!" The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard frowned and rebuked Tang Li Xue harshly.
Red-Eyes Winged Lizard did not know that Xiao Hei also already teleported away to a safe place now so it thought Tang Li Xue wanted to go back to save Xiao Hei from Mo Chonglin.
Tang Li Xue rolled her eyes when she heard Red-Eyes Winged Lizard's words. She was too lazy to explain what happened to Red-Eyes Winged Lizard. Who knows how long it would take for it to understand her complicated gesture.
Tang Li Xue turned her tiny furry body away and ran but Red-Eyes Winged Lizard was shouting at her once again.
"You, crazy lass! Are you really falling in love with that filthy evil human?! He is unworthy of you! Humans and beast will never be fated to be together! It would only bring suffering to you!" Red-Eyes Winged Lizard tried to explain while fuming in rage at Tang Li Xue.
'Love? Hmmm... Nope! But I kind of like being with him and I also like the roasted meat cooked by him... Oh well, maybe I like him a bit hehe...'
While Tang Li Xue in deep thought, Red-Eyes Winged Lizard trapped her tiny body between its giant claws from behind.
Tang Li Xue: '?!'
"I am sorry, little lass... But I am doing this for your own good so I hope you will not blame me in the future!" Red-Eyes Winged Lizard sighed as it used its other claw to tap Tang Li Xue's forehead.
Red-Eyes Winged Lizard's vitality energy already recovered a bit so it can use some of its hidden divine abilities with it.
'What the hell are you doing?!' Tang Li Xue thought in anger.
The tip of Red-Eyes Winged Lizard's claw shone with a dim golden light as it touched Tang Li Xue's forehead.
Then memories about Xiao Hei started to fade away bit by bit...
The taste of his roasted meat...
Everything about him slowly vanished...
'Xiao.....' Tang Li Xue felt her eyelid grew heavier and she fell unconscious.
"Sigh... luckily her time with that Mo brat is not long so I can easily seal it all away. Little lass, you will recover your memories about him after you surpass me someday and at that time, I am really sure you will thank me for it! Well, I would already become your mount if that time really comes so you still cannot blame me for it! Hehehe..." Red-Eyes Winged Lizard grinned put the sleeping Tang Li Xue on its back and it started to fly away from that forest.
After a few hours, Tang Li Xue woke up but she did not feel uncomfortable or anything strange but she already completely forget anything about Xiao Hei even his name.
'Where we are going to now?' Tang Li Xue asked using her gesture.
The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard still has a hard time understanding Tang Li Xue's gesture but it finally understands after a long time.
"Hahaha... You don't need to worry! I will bring you back to your 'home'! I promise you will really like it there!" The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard answered in delight.
Tang Li Xue stared at Red-Eyes Winged Lizard skeptically.
'Tsk... Acted so mysterious! Nah... I have nowhere to go anyway...So I guess I will take a look at where this fake dragon will take me!'
Tang Li Xue could not remember Xiao Hei while Xiao Hei thought Tang Li Xue already died in Mo Chonglin's hand.
Their fate with each other already met its end with this but...
The mysterious ring shining with an azure dim light on Tang Li Xue's neck let out a faint metal sound when Tang Li Xue moved her furry head.
