105 Chapter 105: Goodbye, Fake Dragon!
Tang Li Xue, Yaya, and the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard just flew a few hundred miles away from the erupted volcano but they already almost met with the first old monster with very high-level cultivation that heading toward the volcano.
Fortunately, Yaya warned them a few minutes before their group crossed their path with that old cultivator.
The moment the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard understood Yaya's warning, it immediately landed back to the ground and ran on its feet like the other beasts.
Actually, there were countless other beasts that ran away to avoid the volcano eruption so they ran in the opposite direction from where the volcano was, just like Tang Li Xue and her group.
The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard and Tang Li Xue could blend perfectly with the other escaping beasts but Yaya was very conspicuous since all elemental spirits were very rare and precious.
Tang Li Xue was afraid that Yaya would attract some high-level cultivators' greed so she stored Yaya back into her system before anyone could spot her.
A few seconds after that, the first old monster with very high-level cultivation flew right above them using his flying sword and heading toward the erupted volcano.
The pressure emitting from that old cultivator was very heavy and it made every creature near him suffocating.
Different from Yaya's parent that suppressed the pressure from its power so it did not hurt anyone weaker before, this cultivator deliberately let out the pressure from his cultivation to exerting his dominance.
Tang Li Xue almost wanted to raise her furry head reflexively but the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard warned her sternly before that.
"Do not look at him! All high-level experts from humans or beasts have very sharp sense! They would instantly notice it if someone is watching them!" The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard whispered to Tang Li Xue using its telepathy.
That high-level old cultivator was flying very fast.
After one or two seconds, the heavy pressure from that old cultivator completely vanished from where Tang Li Xue and the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard were.
Tang Li Xue sighed in relief and she tried to ask something from the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard using her gestures.
She made a fist gesture and pointed to the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard then pointed above their head.
"You want to ask who is stronger between me and that old monster?! Hahaha... That old monster probably at the early rank of Nascent Soul Stage so he is much stronger than me but he also cannot hurt me with my impregnable defense. So it would be a stalemate if we fight." The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard put a proud expression.
However, its expression darkened after that and mumbling: "But do not try to fight him if you fall under the same situation someday! Usually, that old monster only comes to scouting ahead and some reinforcements from his sect would come later. If I fight him for a while, his reinforcements would surely come to help later and even though they cannot hurt me, they can capture me using the treasures from their sect!"
Tang Li Xue immediately nodded. Now she understood why this fake dragon could be captured by the Asura Demon Sect even with its perfect defense. The same scenario as today should have happened before to this fake dragon.
It was already a few days after Tang Li Xue and the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard ran away in the opposite direction from the erupted volcano.
They were forced to take the detour so it would take a few days longer for them to reach their destination.
Actually, their journey after that became really dangerous like treading on the thin ice.
But they have no choice on this matter, there were countless cultivators and beasts patrolling around and checking everyone's things.
Of course, Tang Li Xue kept traveling using her [Ethereal Form] since that so she could easily bypass all of their inspection.
There were also countless cases of robbing and killing in this area since then but it was mostly caused by humans.
Most humans not only robbed their own kin, but also killing many beasts to extract their beast cores, blood, bones, and furs. Many parts of demonic beasts were highly valuable so how could the greedy humans let this chance pass just like that.
Fortunately, [Rare] grade demonic Beasts on the same level with the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard were usually wise so they did not make things difficult for the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard but it was different when they met with humans. They would immediately attack any humans they see with the intention to kill!
This situation really made Tang Li Xue confused.
'So all beasts hate humans very much while all humans want to hunt the beasts since they can sell their body parts for the high prices. However, humans would still kill their own kin for money, fun, woman, and treasure. While the beasts would rarely kill their fellow beasts without any reason?'
Tang Li Xue scratched her furry head in puzzlement.
'Why do I starting to feel that the beasts have kinder hearts than humans? Oh well... whatever!'
Tang Li Xue started to get excited again when she thought about the crimson orb treasure she restored before.
She did not dare to take the crimson orb out from her space pouch and examine it closely even now after she ran farther from the erupted volcano for a few days.
However, it was also futile for her to examine the crimson orb with her current measly ability, she would certainly not be able to discover anything useful for now.
'Hmmm... Wait a minute. What if I buy an ability that can help me identify items from the system's skill window? Let see...'
But before Tang Li Xue could open the skill window in her system...
"Little lass, change of plan. It looks like you need to go alone from now on." The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard said to Tang Li Xue while sighing in disappointment.
Tang Li Xue frowned and staring back at the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard in puzzlement.
"One of my fellows from the Lizard Clan noticed me just now. I already disappeared for quite long and the first time he saw me was in this area where the precious divine treasure from Dragon Clan appeared. It was not strange that he and the Lizard Clan were suspicious of me now. He wanted me to follow him back to the Lizard Clan and I must accept their interrogation as soon as possible. Sigh..." The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard shook its giant head after explaining.
Tang Li Xue frowned even deeper after she heard the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard's explanation. She immediately asked something back using her gestures.
"You are asking if I am okay and if it is too dangerous for me then you will give that divine treasure to me so I can give it to my Lizard Clan? Really? This... This is not like you!!!" The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard widened its eyes in shock but its heart was extremely touched.
Tang Li Xue rolled her eyes then lazily nodded her furry head and kept staring at the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard waiting for its answer.
'What do you mean 'this is not like me!'?! I have a kind heart too, okay?! So how could I abandon my own mount! Well, I don't know how to use that crimson orb anyway and I doubt the people from your clan could know how to use it in such a short period of time. I can always steal it back using my [Ethereal Form] later after they find some way to use it! Uwehehehe...'
The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard chuckled and tapped Tang Li Xue's head gently using its giant claw: "Little lass, I already owe you so much for releasing me from that hellish place before so how could I let you do it again now?! My pride as a demonic beast will really be reduced to nothingness by you if you doing something like that for me again. Don't worry about me! This is only a small problem. I will tell them what happened to me honestly excluding what happened at that volcano."
Tang Li Xue was still staring at the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard full of worry. She knew that according to the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard's true nature, it was impossible for the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard to let her traveling alone if it had another choice since the situation on the outside world was unpredictable and full of dangers.
"Hahaha... Little lass, do you really think that I will go back to my Lizard Clan to get interrogated by them? The main reason for me to go back to my Lizard Clan is to recuperating and prepares myself to evolve..." The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard slowly said with an expression full of longing.
'E...Ev... Evol... Evolve?! This fake dragon is already a [Rare] grade demonic beast... If it evolves one more time... Isn't that mean this fake dragon would become A SPIRIT BEAST?! Woah!!!'
The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard chuckled again when it saw Tang Li Xue staring at it full of reverence.
"That is right! I will become a spirit beast! So no matter how suspicious the Lizard Clan is to me, they will never dare to hurt me. Since if I successfully become a Spirit Beast then I would officially become the candidate for the next clan leader!" The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard petted Tang Li Xue's furry head once again using its giant claw gently.
"So you don't need to worry about me! I will come back to find you after I finish all of my business in my Lizard Clan. Oh yeah! I almost forgot to tell you the most important! Actually, I want to tell you this after we arrived at the Foxes Home so you will not forget it later." The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard's expression turned solemn.
Tang Li Xue was very sad when she heard that she must separate from the fake dragon here but her expression also turned serious when she saw the fake dragon's solemn expression.
"This is about your blue flame. You must never use it carelessly from now on! Especially after you enter the Foxes Home later!" The Red-Eyes Winged Lizard warned Tang Li Xue using a very stern tone.
'My blue Phoenix of Pride? Why?' Tang Li Xue widened her eyes in surprise.
She never thought that the last warning the Red-Eyes Winged Lizard would give her was actually about her Flame of Pride.
'Is it because my Flame of Pride is one of that whatever Seven Earthly Desire Spirit? It sounds like seven sins knock off!!! So there are seven other flames like Flame of Pride or what? Sigh... Headache...'
Tang Li Xue rubbed her furry head with her soft paw.
