Reincarnated As a Fox With System - Chapter 453 Place of Inheritance!
“All right, I agree. BUT this will be the last test, and you must give me the inheritance immediately after you test me!” Tang Li Xue replied to Tomb Owner’s Will.
“Yes, I promise I will lead you immediately to the place of inheritance after you pass my last test. The test is also quite simple. You only need to put your palm onto the glowing mural on the wall.” The Tomb Owner’s Will spoke directly into Tang Li Xue’s mind.
Tang Li Xue frowned deeply since the last test’s method was actually out of her expectation.
She thought the Tomb Owner’s Will would only ask her a few more difficult questions about the content of ancient murals.
Suddenly, one of the ancient murals on the cave’s right wall started to shine with dim blue light.
“Put your palm onto the glowing mural on the right wall. All of the ancient murals that you already comprehend will start to shine too later.” The Tomb Owner’s Will explained to Tang Li Xue with usual his archaic voice.
Tang Li Xue walked to approach the glowing mural on the right wall and tried to examine it for a few moments.
She hesitated for a while but still gritted her teeth to steel her resolve and stretched her right palm to touch the glowing mural.
A sonorous sound echoed in the dark cave the moment when Tang Li Xue’s right palm touched the glowing mural on the right wall.
Tang Li Xue almost pulled her right hand in reflex when she heard the sound, but the Tomb Owner’s Will quickly spoke into Tang Li Xue’s mind to warn her: “Do not move! Do not remove your hand from that glowing mural, or the test will fail!”
Tang Li Xue decided not to move her right hand after she heard the warning from Tomb Owner’s Will, and she took a deep breath to calm down herself.
Meanwhile, the surrounding ancient murals started to lit up too with dim blue light one by one.
5… 10… 20… 30… 50… 70… 100… 120… 150… 180… 200…
In only a few minutes, all of the ancient murals around Tang Li Xue already glowing like fireflies, but it was still not over yet!
The glowing ancient murals began to spreading to another side of the dark cave.
300… 500… 800… 1000… 1500… 2000… 3000… 4000… 5000… 7000… 9000…
After more than fifteen minutes, all of the ancient murals engraved on the dark cave’s right and left wall, ceiling, and floor already shone with dim blue light.
Tang Li Xue did not really understand what happened right now, so she asked with a doubtful tone: “Err… All ancient murals are glowing, so it means I managed to pass the test, right?”
However, the Tomb Owner’s Will was too dumbfounded to answer Tang Li Xue’s question right now.
Only after Tang Li Xue called for him many times that he replied to Tang Li Xue with a lethargic and heavy tone: “Yes… you… passed…”
Tang Li Xue’s bright smile bloomed beautifully after she heard the confirmation from Tomb Owner’s Will.
“Great! Now, where is my inheritance?! You better take me quickly to there. I am very busy you know! I already spend half of my remaining time to stay in Inheritance Ground Tablet in your tomb!” Tang Li Xue impatiently said to the Tomb Owner’s Will with a cheeky tone.
The Tomb Owner’s Will sighed with mixed feelings of resignation and admiration at Tang Li Xue’s comprehension that was beyond common sense.
The high-pitched sound reverberated again in the dark cave as everything around Tang Li Xue started to collapse.
When Tang Li Xue opened her topaz blue eyes again, she suddenly found herself in the middle of the corridor, and there was a pair of giant majestic golden gates that stood right in front of her.
“These golden gates… The place of inheritance should be behind these golden gates, right?” Tang Li Xue murmured in hesitation, but her topaz blue eyes immediately shone brightly as she impatiently pushed open the majestic golden gates and entered the room behind them.
Tang Li Xue already imagined a vast room filled with rich heavenly resources such as several mountains of spirit stones, hundreds or even thousands of precious heavenly herbs, and hundreds of shelves filled with extraordinary pills in bottles…
Not to mention the rare heavenly artifacts or treasures such as armors, swords, amulets, and so on…
Tang Li Xue’s drool almost flowed out from her mouth just by imagining them.
Unfortunately, the room behind the majestic golden gates was not like what Tang Li Xue had imagined in her mind.
There was a huge room behind the majestic golden gates, but instead of heavenly herbs or treasures, this huge room was filled with countless swords that stabbed onto the ground.
“Is this… the inheritance room? But… but… why are there only swords here?! Where are the treasures?!” Tang Li Xue exclaimed in surprise mixed with anger.
“Treasures? Do you mean the inheritance? All of the swords here are the inheritance itself. Each of these swords represents different inheritance. You only need carefully choose one of the swords here, and you will receive the inheritance behind it later.” The Tomb Owner’s Will explained to Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue’s pink lips were twitching in annoyance. She felt like she just got scammed by this Tomb Owner’s Will.
“Are you kidding me?! I thought I would get everything in this Crystal Palace Tomb since I already passed all the trials with so much difficulty!” Tang Li Xue blurted out to ask the Tomb Owner’s Will.
“Fated young one, aren’t you too greedy?! I admit that you are really a rare genius, but it is still too risky to put all of the hope to one inheritor after all. Moreover, you already comprehend all of the martial art techniques, my lifetime experience, and insights. All of those are the most important inheritance here.” The Tomb Owner’s Will replied to Tang Li Xue.
Tang Li Xue frowned deeply while nodded her head in understanding.
In short, this crystal tomb’s owner divided his inheritance into many parts, so he could have many inheritors.
The reason why these old cultivators put their inheritance here was that because they did not want their martial arts or name to disappear forever in the river of time.
They wanted to find a rare genius as their inheritor, so that inheritor could use their martial arts and made it renowned through the entire Immortal World.
But there was also the risk that rare geniuses would die before they became strong enough and became famous…
So, Tang Li Xue understood why the crystal tomb’s owner split his inheritance into many parts to have more inheritors instead of just one.
Moreover, she was a genius from Fox Race and not from Human Race, so it was impossible for her to just shout out something like ‘I am Tang Li Xue, the inheritor of Heavenly Sword Immortal!’ for everyone to know.
She would definitely hide it for a quite long time since no [Uncommon] grade beast could have human Qi or even use martial art techniques.
Only [Epic] Grade Beast or the True Spirit Beast Rank that already got their real human form could do it.
Since Tang Li Xue knew that she would only get a small part of Heavenly Sword Immortal’s inheritance, she did not want to waste any of her precious time here and quickly asked again: “All right, I understand. So, I just need to pick one of the swords here, right?”
Tang Li Xue calculated that she only has about half a month left to stay in this Inheritance Ground Tablet.
She just wanted to randomly pick one sword and go out of here quickly, so she could find another inheritance or fortuitous encounter in this Inheritance Ground Tablet, but the Tomb Owner’s Will added a few more words that managed to attract her interest again.
“Sigh… I will give you one crucial piece of information since you are a really rare genius that managed to comprehend all of the content in the last trial.” The Tomb Owner’s Will spoke again into Tang Li Xue’s mind.
“Oh? Important information?” Tang Li Xue blinked her topaz blue eyes and felt quite interested.
“I already told you that when I was alive, I was chased by many enemies and forced to flee from Central Continent, then ran to this remote Lightwind Continent. The reason for that is because I managed to obtain something incredibly precious. That incredibly precious item is included in the inheritance among one of these swords.” The Tomb Owner’s Will suddenly revealed something shocking.
“An incredibly precious item?! What kind of item is that?! Don’t tell me that it is one of the Heavenly Treasure Rank?” Tang Li Xue quickly asked again with a tone filled with amazement.
“No, it is not a Heavenly Treasure Rank…” The Tomb Owner’s Will replied with a serious tone.
Tang Li Xue’s expression turned gloomy, and she immediately lost all of her interest again.
“But it is something much more precious than any treasure in Heavenly Treasure Rank. If I did not quickly take it and escaped out from Central Continent, this item would certainly create a huge bloodbath among all of the Immortal powerhouses in the Central Continent. The consequence is simply unimaginable.” The Tomb Owner’s Will added again with a proud tone as if he already did something good to save the Central Continent from a great calamity.
Tang Li Xue’s topaz eyes shone brightly in excitement like a pair of stars after she heard the words from Tomb Owner’s Will.
‘Something much more precious than any treasure in Heavenly Treasure Rank?! Can create a huge bloodbath?! Don’t tell me… it is a Divine Treasure?! Oh… My… God… It should be a Divine Treasure, right?!’ Tang Li Xue thought as her heart was beating faster and faster.
