261 Chapter 261: Pride VS Lust!
However, Tang Li Xue thought some crimson-robed guards were catching up to her, and it made her almost failed to notice a tiny hair-sized dark crimson snake like a thin needle flashed toward her Dantian.
'What the hell is that?!' Tang Li Xue thought in alarm as she moved her slender body and reflexively used her [Moonlight Flickering Flash Step] to dodge it.
The speed of this tiny hair-sized dark crimson snake was lightning fast.
When Tang Li Xue turned her body to the right side to dodge it, the tiny dark crimson snake also twisted its body and adjusted its flight angle!
It changed its course and chasing after Tang Li Xue's Dantian as if it was targeting something inside Tang Li Xue's Dantian!
It was too late for Tang Li Xue to dodge since the tiny hair-sized dark crimson snake was already so close to her, so she decided to face it head-on instead!
But before Tang Li Xue could use any of her battle skills or divine abilities, the Phoenix of Pride already swiftly flew out from her Dantian and collided head to head with the needle-sized dark crimson snake!
The violent collision between the two of them caused a big explosion.
The extremely hot deep-blue flame was spreading everywhere, evaporated everything it touches into nothingness.
The deep-blue flame could not hurt Tang Li Xue, but the powerful shockwave from their collision threw Tang Li Xue several meters backward.
Her slender body crashed onto the nearby building wall heavily like a cannonball, and the building wall collapsed in an instant.
Tang Li Xue did not have any spare time to check her injuries, and her [High-Speed Regeneration] could automatically heal her wounds over time anyway.
Tang Li Xue hastily equipped her [Critical Strikers] and [Shadow Striders].
Previously, Tang Li Xue decided to not use these two pieces of equipment since she was afraid that she would become dependent on it.
She never used it even once, not even under the intense training of Instructor Mei Lan and Teacher Bai Wuchen.
She did not even use it when she was facing Mogui and his team since that sparring match was not a life-threatening battle.
But now it was different, she was facing a life or death battle!
In this kind of situation, she would never hesitate to go all out!
Tang Li Xue also took several different kinds of talisman from her space pouch and used it on herself!
[Talisman of Giant Strength +3]!
[Talisman of Lightning Speed +3]!
[Talisman of Iron Skin +3]!
Tang Li Xue also used her newly invented talisman to herself this time.
[Talisman of Scorching Flame +3]
[ Effect: Fire Elemental Attack power +25%, Burning Ailment Effect +15%, Fire Elemental Area of Effect +10% for 10 minutes.]
[+1 Effect: Fire Elemental Attack power +15%, Burning Ailment Effect +10%, Fire Elemental Area of Effect +5%. Duration +5 minutes.]
[+2 Effect: Fire Elemental Attack power +25%, Burning Ailment Effect +15%, Fire Elemental Area of Effect +10%. Duration +10 minutes.]
[+3 Effect: Fire Elemental Attack power +35%, Burning Ailment Effect +20%, Fire Elemental Area of Effect +15%. Duration +15 minutes.]
Different from Yaya which has her own divine abilities and level, the Phoenix of Pride's power was coming from Tang Li Xue.
The stronger Tang Li Xue was, the stronger her Phoenix of Pride would be!
That was the reason why she used this [Talisman of Scorching Flame +3] on herself and not on the Phoenix of Pride.
With this [Talisman of Scorching Flame +3], the Phoenix of Pride would get 100% increase in its attacking power, 60% increase in its burning effect, and 40% increase in its Area of Effect attack for 40 minutes!
Tang Li Xue also activated her [Twin Moons] divine ability and summoned out her perfect copy without any hesitation.
After finished her preparation for battle, Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy used their [Moonlight Flickering Flash Step] and dashed hastily toward where the Phoenix of Pride fought with the hair-sized dark crimson snake.
The situation did not look good for the Phoenix of Pride right now.
Previously, the Phoenix of Pride used its extremely hot deep-blue flame to attack the hair-sized dark crimson snake, and it created a big explosion upon their heavy collision.
But the hair-sized dark crimson snake clearly did not afraid of the Phoenix of Pride's flame!
The big explosion even failed to injure the hair-sized dark crimson snake since it could alternate between three forms: solid form, liquid form, and gas form.
The hair-sized dark crimson snake momentarily turned itself into the gas form, and it turned into blood-colored fog, which the main reason why the big explosion failed to hurt it.
After the explosion, the dark crimson snake changed its form once again from the blood-colored fog into a bigger snake and coiled around the Phoenix of Pride's flame body!
Yes, not only the dark crimson snake could change into three forms, it could even change its body size!
But the change of its body size did not affect its speed and power at all!
Its movement still remained lightning fast, and its strength was also very powerful!
In short, this dark crimson snake's overall strength was not inferior at all compared with the Blood Flood Dragon created by the black-masked old man, but it certainly could move a lot faster than that Blood Flood Dragon!
The Phoenix of Pride who was currently entangled by the dark crimson snake could not even break free from it after struggling for a few moments!
The dark crimson snake hissed toward the Phoenix of Pride's face. It even greedily licked its lips as if it wanted to eat the most delicious delicacy.
Thankfully, Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy arrived in time.
Both Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy waved their hand and sent two [Moon Splitters] toward the dark crimson snake.
Two sharp cross-shaped silver lights carefully slashed the dark crimson snake's body without touching the Phoenix of Pride.
The two [Moon Splitters] easily slashed the dark crimson snake's body, but the two [Moon Splitters] failed to cut the dark crimson snake's body!
The feeling Tang Li Xue got was like cutting the water.
She managed to cut it, but that did not mean it did be cut into two or three parts after being cut.
'What a troublesome opponent!' Tang Li Xue thought as she frowned deeply.
This was the first time Tang Li Xue facing the elemental spirit, and she did not even have any clue on how to defeat it.
'Sigh ... I should have studied more diligently while I am at the Myriad Foxes Academy before...' Tang Li Xue sighed in frustration.
It was already too late for her to regret it now, but she decided to read more books about the elemental spirit in the education department's library after she went back to Myriad Foxes Academy later.
The dark crimson snake did not even bother to glance at Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy and opened its mouth widely instead!
It seemed the dark crimson snake planned to swallow the Phoenix of Pride whole in one big gulp!
Of course, Tang Li Xue would never let that happen!
She and her perfect copy immediately held the dark crimson snake's head together.
The [Sun Dragon King's Pearl] already accelerated the Phoenix of Pride's growth by a lot.
It already grew bigger than the palm-size and already almost reached the arm-size right now.
However, the dark crimson snake adjusted its size to ensnare the Phoenix of Pride with its body.
With the dark crimson snake's current size, Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy could hold the dark crimson snake's perfectly in their grasp.
Unfortunately, their current strength was far from enough to stop the dark crimson snake's movement.
With one single flick of its slippery body, Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy were thrown a few meters away.
Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy never thought that this dark crimson snake's strength was so powerful despite its small size.
After flinging Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy away, the dark crimson snake opened its wide mouth once again.
"Damn it! That snake is strong!" Tang Li Xue groaned in frustration.
[Blood Ignition] - Quadruple Amplification… Active!
Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy activated the divine ability they copied from Hei Yinghao at the same time.
Both of them moved so swiftly and held the dark crimson snake again.
Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy gritted their teeth and used all of their strength to pull the dark crimson snake away from the Phoenix of Pride.
But the dark crimson snake did not budge even one bit even after Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy used their entire strength. It only felt even more annoyed by the action of Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy.
Tang Li Xue's mind spun faster, trying to think of a way to release the Phoenix of Pride out of this sinister snake's grasp.
Suddenly, the head of the dark crimson snake magnified by tens of times in an instant!
Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy did not have any time to react when the dark crimson snake's head pounced at them all of a sudden.
They could not use their [Ethereal Form] under the effect of the blood barrier.
The dark crimson snake's head movement was too fast for their [Moonlight Flickering Flash Step] to dodge, and they also stood so near with the dark crimson snake until they could feel its slippery skin in their grasp.
Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy could only activate their defensive divine ability, the [Golden Body] to defend themselves.
