Chapter 1014: Miserable Blood Nine

Who said that the tiny wings were useless? The Overlord Dragon’s actions proved that despite being small, the wings could play a decisive role as well.
Blood Nine’s body transformed into tattered speckles of golden light as he vanished soundlessly. Meanwhile, Tang Wulin was also ghastly pale. The complementing yin-yang vortex was circulating at maximum speed, making so much blood seep out from his body’s pores that even his hands were trembling slightly as he held the Golden Dragon Spear.
He himself found it hard to believe that everything taking place before his eyes was real, leave alone anyone else.
Won? Had he won?
Yes, it was this feeling, the feeling of devoting every effort into unleashing his fighting capacity. He had finally used everything which he had learned from his latest breakthrough.
A one-hundred-thousand-year spirit soul was supposed to bestow him with the blood soul ring, but the Damask Tulip had a cultivation base of two hundred thousand years. It was still relatively weaker than real beasts as it was developed from the Icefire Polarized Eyes. Thus, it manifested in the form of a red soul ring when it fused with Tang Wulin earlier.
Its strength had permeated Tang Wulin thoroughly after all these days. In addition, Tang Wulin’s newly formed soul core and bloodline power influenced and transformed it into a spirit soul so great that, within a few shorts days, it had crossed a threshold which it had not managed to pass for countless years as a soul beast in the past. It had finally become a beast and gifted Tang Wulin with an orange-gold soul ring.
The white-gold radiance on the Golden Dragon Spear vanished. There was a flash of light from Tang Wulin’s body as he appeared on the outside of the competition stage once again.
All of Blood Nine’s muscles were convulsing slightly. The feeling of death was definitely unpleasant. Tang Wulin was not in a much better situation either. He was ghastly pale and swaying as if he was about to topple over. However, his eyes were exceptionally bright and overflowing with excitement that could not be concealed.
Eight great Blood Gods were standing by the side watching them as they remained speechless for quite some time.
There was no doubt that this was a battle that had managed to shock all of them.
When Tang Wulin challenged Blood Nine, they were assuming that this was more like an experience for Tang Wulin to temper himself. Even Blood Nine thought so. He proposed to bet on merit points with Tang Wulin more as a joke. Thus, he had never taken the initiative to attack since the beginning of the battle, but instead, he had defended passively in order to allow Tang Wulin to unleash himself even better.
Yet, who would have known that what would be unleashed would be so overwhelming? Tang Wulin’s unchecked power had dominated Blood Nine to the point where he would have to fulfill his promise.
Blood Nine had not thought that Tang Wulin could defeat him even when he was compelled to unleash his battle armor. Yet, when his body was in tatters, and he was finally struck by the Overlord Dragon’s fatal blow, the feeling was simply inconceivable.
How could he lose? He was a Title Douluo! The opponent was but a Soul Emperor! No matter how careless he was, how could the opponent be strong enough to harm him? Logically speaking, a Soul Emperor-ranked two-word battle armor master should not have even been able to break his defenses!
Yet, the truth of it was right before his eyes regardless of his hundred reasons, thousand excuses, proclamations that he did not devote all of his efforts, or even his claim that it was his own carelessness. For this battle at least, he had lost. He had been utterly defeated and was killed in the process.
He had no choice but to admit that the Star Dou Battle Network was a precise system. One could fight without the slightest qualm and had utterly no need to worry about harming the opponent. Was that not supposed to be how it would go for Blood Nine? Yet, it had gone that way for Tang Wulin this time.
Blood Two raised his brows ever so slightly and walked to Blood Nine’s side. He spoke indifferently, “Very well!” He turned around and left after saying those words.
Blood Nine felt his scalp turn numb, for this was the sequence of events that would lead to his doom! He had angered the old man, so he was afraid that he would be plunged into dire suffering in the upcoming days.
Blood Eight glared at him coldly. “You proposed this bet yourself!” He left as well upon saying that.
The shock in Blood Three’s eyes gradually disappeared. She walked to Tang Wulin’s side and wrapped her arm around his shoulder. “You really gave us a huge surprise there! Is that orange-gold soul ring of yours a one-hundred-thousand-year spirit soul?”
Tang Wulin nodded once.
Blood Five was not good with words, but he gave Tang Wulin a thumbs up.
Blood Four, who was not too acquainted with Tang Wulin, nodded at him. Blood Six on the other hand sniggered. “That was awesome. You’re Blood Nine from now on. However, I wonder how many days you can last.”
Yes, he was the victor after challenging Blood Nine. From this moment onward, Tang Wulin would take over Blood Nine’s position and went from a Blood God reserve member to a true Blood God.
Blood One smiled. “You’re the youngest Blood God ever in the history of the Blood God Battalion. You have a month’s time to prepare, and he can’t challenge you during that time. A month from now, he will certainly fight for his rank again, so work hard, alright?”
Blood Nine? Since when had he turned into Blood Nine?
Tang Wulin was stunned for a moment.
Of course, he was aware that this situation might only be momentary. After all, he could not possibly have won, if not for Blood Nine’s surrender, judging by their actual abilities.
Tang Wulin shook his head gently and spoke, “Blood One, I am not qualified to become Blood Nine yet. It was he who yielded. He had been withstanding my attacks passively all along.”
Blood One spoke smilingly, “No, you’re truly Blood Nine since you’ve already won, regardless of the process. This is to motivate you and it’s just the same for him as well. One month. You’re Blood Nine at least for this one month.”
Blood Nine scoffed bitterly. “You brat, you’ve caused me such misery. It’s certainly going to be a month that I’m overwhelmed with grief and sorrow. However, I won’t be showing you any mercy after that! Prepare yourself well. By then, I won’t be acting courteously to you.”
Tang Wulin looked toward Blood Nine and felt like he was at a loss for words. As the victor, was it a good idea for him to console the loser after the battle?
Blood Eight broke into a snigger. “Serves you right. But, Wulin, you’ve truly shocked all of us. Your technique using three spirit souls during the battle earlier took us all aback. Every single spirit soul of yours is so powerful. That was key to defeating your opponent, besides your attacking ability. Even three-word battle armor is incapable of resisting that. That weapon of yours is just too efficient.”
No doubt Tang Wulin had defeated Blood Nine because he chose to yield, but on the other hand, his attacking ability was definitely at the level of a Title Douluo in order for him to have struck through a three-word battle armor master’s defense.
Tang Wulin had used almost ten Blood Soul Fusion Skills earlier, and the most powerful blow was mainly due to the ability brought by the orange-gold soul ring.
The orange-gold soul ring was capable of bringing in more than one soul skill. A one-hundred-thousand-year soul ring could similarly produce two soul skills, but this orange-gold soul ring could bring in even more than that.
Tang Wulin used the soul skill that was named ‘Devour Heaven and Earth’!
The Damask Tulip was the progenitor of immortal grass and also one of the noblest immortal grasses. Any origin energy between heaven and earth could be absorbed and digested by it. On the other hand, when it was converted into Tang Wulin’s soul skill, one of its effects became the Devour Heaven and Earth.
The effect of the Devour Heaven and Earth was that it could instantly absorb all sorts of origin energy and elements within a certain distance from Tang Wulin, exponentially increasing his fighting capacity temporarily. At his current six-ringed cultivation base, it could immediately elevate his overall combat capabilities by sixty percent. As he increased his cultivation base in the future, the amount of elevation would increase along with it.
Thus, Tang Wulin could use the Thousand Accusing Fingers once again during his final attack and charge forth with even more power due to the amplification of the Devour Heaven and Earth. It was an auxiliary soul skill that went so far beyond the one-hundred-thousand-year level that even the battle armor’s amplification effect was overcome. It was during that very moment that Tang Wulin had truly broken through to a Title Douluo’s rank and achieved even more powerful attacking ability. That was the reason he could break the three-word battle armor.
