My Big Brother is Seeking Death Again - 27. Not every beast loves fish
Shi Xia had never experienced the importance of getting a driver’s license so deeply and so didn’t have many chances to use the maps and feel that they are completely useless. They have been on the road for three months, but the map on the phone showed that there was still half the distance to reach that Mu Xuan Immortal Palace.
Long Aotian followed her all the way, after a long time she realized that this person actually has the attribute of a chicken, chanting all day long. Plus, all the muscles were only for the eyes to see and simply for decoration. Shi Xia felt that he was really blind to have, Long Aotian, such a wild and tyrannical name as his own name. Except for having the muscles, she could not find half of the main character’s temperament.
“Ah …… help ah ……” a sharp voice cut through the long air.
The roasted chicken Long Aotian instantly stood up, turned around and ran towards the sound.
“Wait.” Shi Xia yanked him back, “You don’t even know the situation and running over to help?”
“But someone called for help.” He looked anxious.
“Let’s see the situation first.” Shi Xia pointed to a large tree in front of him, indicating him to go up. The voice was clear, the distance should not be far.
Long Aotian then leapt up on the tree in a few steps, and Shi Xia also chanted a wind spell to light up the body and flew up.
They looked forward, and saw 50 meters away from them, a fiery red coloured fox was standing. Although it was a fox, but it grew as big as an elephant. Rather than having one tail, there were several fiery red tails behind the fox. Counting them, it seemed there were total of eight tails. It was baring its teeth, growing and hissing fiercely towards someone at the front.
And in front of it stood a woman in a green dress, the voice calling for help came from the woman’s mouth.
“It’s a girl!” Long Aotian was startled, his body leaped forward and ran towards the girl with light steps.
“Wait ……” Shi Xia was simply too late to stop him. He had already gone forward and punched that eight-tailed demon fox on the face.
Damn, all the way she hadn’t seen him so anxious but this time he actually crossed the line. Seeing that the demon fox raised its claws and was going to slap a certain justice loving man, thanks to him missing two or more screws on his head, she had to suppress the heart full of doubts, and jumped down. She wasn’t skilled enough in wood magic but she still chanted a spell and controlled the vine before wrapping it around the claw that was about shot to Long Aotian.
“Get out of the way!” Shi Xia reminded him.
Long Aotian stepped back a few steps, leaving the demon fox’s attack range, and then leapt onto the back of the demon fox. He sent his fist to the demon fox head, which suddenly went frenzied, hissing louder and louder, and shaking its body crazily, trying to throw Long Aotian off.
Although Long Aotian had no spiritual power, he was good at kung fu. His cultivation level was equivalent to the Foundation Establishment stage after all. And it was just a fourth-level demonic beast, so both him and the demon fox were equal in strength. But with Shi Xia on Long Aotian’s side, who was helping him by wrapping the vines around the fox from time to time, they actually had the upper hand.
From the color of this demon fox, it should be a fire breathing fox only, which can breathe fire. But who knew if it was knocked out by Long Aotian’s fist with internal force? It just struggled and didn’t shoot fire at them.
Its claws were sharp, cutting the ground into a deep groove. Shi Xia dodged, with her half-learned spells. Maybe Long Aotian couldn’t withstand the claws, he was several times nearly thrown down.
It was a protracted battle, depending on who defeated who. They kept punching and dodging, and spent half an hour struggling with the fox. Finally, the fire fox ran out of strength. Its back was also beaten by Long Aotian’s punch and was seeping with blood. Lying on the ground, it wailed loudly with pain.
Shi Xia was also tired, her body’s internal energy was almost used up. Long Aotian kicked the demon fox lying on the ground while breathing heavily.
“I’ll help you guys.” The woman in green who was so scared by the demon fox that she just hid behind a tree rushed out. Holding a bag in her hand, she walked to a place a few steps away from the demon fox and started chanting a few words with her both hands up?
Suddenly, a red light appeared under the demon fox, it was a spell formation. Floating up, a string of golden talismans immediately afterwards appeared on the forehead of the demon fox.
These magic symbols are ……
The symbols are the spells of contracting a spirit beast!
“You ……” Shi Xia turned her head in surprise to look at the woman, but the demon fox on the ground had already turned into a red fire and flew into the bag in the woman’s hand.
What the! This little bitch! Shi Xia almost wanted to curse, only the stupid companion of hers couldn’t see her intentions.
Long Aotian was really stupid. As soon as he stood up, he asked the girl with a worried face, “Girl, are you okay?”
The woman in green laughed coldly, turned around and flew away with her sword.
Long Aotian became dumbfounded, “Benefactor Shunfeng, she …… she smiled at me!”
“……” Shi Xia wanted beat this stupid person to death.
Taking a deep breath, she recovered a bit of strength, pulled the still dazed idiot’s hand and walked forward, “Let’s go quickly, we need to hurry out of here.”
“Why?” He looked puzzled.
“Damn, you are not only an idiot but have brain-damage ah!” Shi Xia raised her hand and slapped him on the back of the head, “Didn’t you see that the little bitch just used us to collect the spirit beast.”
“Collect the spirit beast ……” he froze and then came back to his senses. It really seemed to be the case.
“That person’s cultivation is above us, but she deliberately led us here, there must be other reasons for this.”
Before coming to help the girl, she heard her shouting for help, but the tone of her voice didn’t sound too panicked. Not only that, even though it looked like she was being chased by demonic beasts, but the clothes on her body were dry and clean. That’s why she didn’t want Long Aotian to go forward to save her. But who knew he only grew muscles and not brain cells.
“No matter what the reason is for which she didn’t collect the spirit beast by herself, it is not safe to stay here. Hurry up.”
Only then did Long Aotian wake up as if from a dream, and quickly followed Shi Xia to run in the direction they came from. But just as they took a few steps, a deafening roar came from behind.
The sound was so loud that it spread almost throughout the whole forest. An indescribable pressure enveloped the both of them.
Shi Xia felt her legs turning a little weak. She and Long Aotian looked at each other, both of their hearts suddenly thumped and sank as they exclaimed loudly.
She twisted Long Aotian’s hand, and chanted a wind-based spell. Pushing her legs firmly to the ground, she ran forward wildly. Listening to the sound of the roar, it seemed this demonic beast must be stronger than the one just now.
She focused all her concentration on spells and channeled it to her legs. Her body was running forward like lightning, her speed wasn’t less than flying on a long sword. But as she was fast, the demonic beast behind was faster.
She could feel a burning heat coming from behind. The next moment, a big fire rose up towards them, blocking the way and surrounding the two. The trees in the forest instantly turned into black ash.
With a roar, another fiery red body rushed out, which was twice as big as the fire fox they defeated. Its body was burning with flames, its tails were flying wildly behind it.
Shi Xia took a look and counted. Nine …… nine tailed spirit fox!
Shi Xia felt her heart dropping to her stomach. She heard from old man Bi Hong that demonic foxes are fifth-ranked beasts from birth, and once they are adults, they turn into a sixth-rank demonic beast, which was equivalent to the middle stage of Golden Pill. The one in front was much bigger which meant it was obviously an adult, and maybe even a higher level demonic beast than she knew.
Both her and Long Aotian were pseudo-cultivators, and their cultivation levels were at the Foundation Establishment Stage. They only had a small amount of Qi to practice. In the eyes of the sixth-rank demon beast, they were like a packet of snacks.
She finally understood why that little bitch used them to take the spirit beast, and didn’t do it herself. The nine-tailed spirit fox was more powerful than the previous one, and its fire was stronger than any other fire breathing demonic beasts. Their only weakness is that when they are about to reach adulthood, their cultivation will regress to the fourth-rank, and only after reaching full adulthood will it rise to the sixth-rank in one fell swoop. So every nine-tailed spirit fox before growing up to be an adult would have parents around to guard them. The little bitch took away this nine-tailed demonic fox’s child, leaving them to attract the hatred of the mother.
Long Aotian was covered in the blood of the nine-tailed fox’s child, and so the mother fox will never let them off the hook.
It sent another sharp roar towards them, the sound was loud, like a steel knife piercing the eardrums. Because it was a sixth-rank demonic beast, its roars contained the pressure of something powerful suppressing them. Shi Xia felt pain in the heart and chest, when she opened her mouth, a mouthful of blood spluttered out.
“Benefactor!” Long Aotian became anxious. Who knew where the strength and courage came from, he lifted a huge stone and threw it over to the demonic beast, catching it off guard.
Pulled her up from the ground, they continued to run wildly as he asked, “What should we do? Benefactor, do you know how we can deal with it?”
“You’re kidding. This one is a sixth-rank demonic beast, I can’t even beat a fourth-rank, let alone sixth-rank.” She was just a Qi practicing dog.
“Huh?” Long Aotian was stunned, “Didn’t the benefactor always hide her cultivation?”
“Who hid whose cultivation?” She’s too idle to do such a thing, alright?
“But …… but you didn’t have any cultivation level before, and suddenly you started practicing and reached the third stage of Qi Refining in one night.” He looked like he couldn’t believe it, “Now, you are at the fifth level of Qi Refining.”
“Because that’s what I was doing these days. I was just temporarily cultivating ah!”
“……” Is cultivation something so easy? It’s only been three months and she has already reached the fifth level of Qi Refining. It took him thirty years of practice before he was equivalent to Foundation Establishment, “I thought that my benefactor was omnipotent.”
“Who told you I’m omnipotent?” She gave him a blank look.
“Then what can be done about this?” His face became even more flustered, and with a grit of his teeth he said, “Or benefactor can escape first, and I’ll fight it.”
He suddenly stopped.
“You’re crazy!” Shi Xia just stopped and the demonic fox caught up with them.
It opened its big mouth and bit towards them.
What can I do? What should I do? This is not Big Meow, who will be seduced by dried fish!
She hastily held out the largest packet of dried fish from her storage bag!
“Benefactor, you……” Long Ao Tian was dumbfounded.
“No matter what, let’s try it!” She raised her hand and flung it out hard, throwing it directly into the demon fox’s mouth.
The demon fox closed its mouth and swallowed the packet in a mouthful. It didn’t even pause and began to roar more fiercely at them. Opening its mouth again, it tried to bite the two of them in half.
She knew it wouldn’t work because it’s not the Big Meow. This trick is completely useless ah!
Shi Xia was desperate, eyeing the mouth of the sharp rows of teeth coming closer and closer, she seemed to see herself broken into half by its teeth.
Just as the fox was about to bite them, it stopped with its huge mouth wide open. The demonic fox suddenly took two steps backward, and the flames on its body started to extinguish little by little. Its body bowed, and began to scratch the neck with its claws, before suddenly starting vomiting.
This is ……it seems…… stuck!
The fish’s bones are stuck in its throat!
Shi Xia expressed a subtle mood! Dried fish is really an invincible magic tool in this world ah.
“Run!” While the demonic fox was still trying to pull out the fish bones, Shi Xia pulled up Long Aotian and began to run again.
They just ran two steps, when Long Aotian suddenly pushed her to the side, “careful!” Before the words were finished, Long Aotian had been slapped away with a claw.
Immediately after, she felt the sound of a blast of wind ringing in her ears. The next moment a huge claw had been slapped on her chest. She could hear the sound of several things shattering inside. Without anyone telling, she knew it was the sound of her ribs breaking.
With a bang, she fell directly next to Long Aotian.
That demon fox was stuck by the fish thorns, but still didn’t let them go. Its hatred is so big ah!
