The attack launched by the Damask Tulip in the form of a spirit soul should not be considered an attack. It was, in fact, derived from the Damask Tulip’s own Damask’s Scent. The Damask’s Scent was effective in detoxifying all sorts of poisons and removing any impurities, so it was supposed to be a good thing. Hence, the person who underwent the detoxification would feel the severe pains subside while becoming relaxed completely.
Hence, Blood Nine did not feel any pain at all despite being attacked and his body responded although he had suffered a fatal injury.
The type of soul skill, whether it was auxiliary or recovery, would determine the effect produced which would differ under different circumstances.
Blood Nine was baffled by his loss. Nonetheless, he had truly lost.
One more victory was added to the record above Tang Wulin’s head. He had managed to achieve victory in all the battles that he had participated in the Star Dou Battle Network so far.
There was no doubt that today’s battle was the most dangerous, but he still managed to win.
He logged out of the Star Dou Battle Network before he returned to his living quarters. Tang Wulin assumed a sitting meditation posture to begin meditating at once.
Today’s battle had an extremely great influence over him. It was his first time embracing the Blood Soul Fusion Skill in a battle.
If not for the formation of his soul core and the Damask Tulip, it would be impossible for him to defeat his opponent. Besides, Tang Wulin also felt he possessed the fighting capability of a high-ranking soul master after having progressively fused all his abilities.
The meditation was very important to him. In order to achieve mastery, he needed to understand himself thoroughly. Sure enough, engaging in an actual battle with a powerhouse was the best method to assess himself. At the same time, the battle had enabled his double cores to stabilize such that he could control the fighting capability of each and every part of his body.
It was not the twin martial soul but was even much better.
Previously, he was envious of Wu Siduo’s soul fusion skill, but currently, his blood soul fusion skill had surpassed Wu Siduo’s. The blood soul fusion skill’s explosive force was so powerful that his fighting capability could finally achieve the Title Douluo’s level.
The next day, Tang Wulin ended his meditation. His entire body felt refreshed and energized. He even felt like he had made a great leap in his spiritual power.
The Blood God Bracelet on his wrist displayed a message sent by Blood One commanding his return to the Blood God Battalion.
Tang Wulin replied Blood One’s message asking to confirm the time. Blood One requested that he went over right away.
Tang Wulin stretched his body for a moment before he exited the living quarters with the Golden Dragon Spear in his hand. He boarded the elevator and arrived at the main operations room of the Blood God Battalion.
Blood One and Blood Three were there while the rest of the Blood Gods were not around.
“Senior Blood One.” Tang Wulin took a few steps forward and stood before Blood One.
There was a tray covered with a piece of red cloth in Blood Three’s hands.
Blood One waved his hand at Tang Wulin as a signal for him to come closer. Meanwhile, he lifted the cloth on the tray.
There was a Blood God Bracelet and two epaulets on the tray.
The Blood God Bracelet was gold-red with the same rose pattern on it, but it appeared magnificent. A shimmering gold star adorned each of the two epaulets. A golden tassel decorated the side of the star. A star on an epaulet signified the military rank of a major general!
Tang Wulin’s heart was beating fast.
Blood One passed the Blood God Bracelet to him. “You can use this to send text messages and transfer the data from your old bracelet to the new one. As one of the nine Blood Gods, you’ll receive some privileges. Blood Three will explain these privileges to you in a while and how to use them. Remember, the privileges are meant for us to fight the abyssal creatures better and not for personal gains.”
As he was saying that, Blood One removed the colonel’s epaulet on Tang Wulin’s shoulder and proceeded to put on the epaulet with a star.
Blood Three spoke with a smile, “You’re the youngest Blood God in the Blood God Battalion. At the same time, you’re also the Federation’s youngest major general. Congratulations, Blood Nine.”
Tang Wulin was in a trance. He was getting even more worried and nervous. He felt that he did not deserve the name ‘Blood Nine’. Also, he felt rather guilty because of Blood Nine’s loss. Blood Nine was just acting as his sparring partner in training. Tang Wulin’s ability was inferior to Blood Nine’s, yet he was taking something that belonged to Blood Nine.
“Are you feeling worried? Or nervous?” asked Blood One indifferently.
Tang Wulin spoke with a bitter smile as he looked at the heavy epaulets on his shoulders, “A little of both. I daren’t leave the room with these epaulets on my shoulder. After all, I don’t truly live up to the ability.”
Blood One spoke with a deep voice, “Then you shall work hard to ensure that you’re equipped with the ability. It’s an encouragement for you. It’s also meant to motivate you. Could it be that you wish to return Blood Nine’s designation conveniently after a month? That’s not something we wish and definitely not something the original Blood Nine wishes either. What you should do now is to preserve the honor by all means. Do you understand?”
Tang Wulin felt inspired in his heart. Preserve the honor! Yet, was he truly capable of preserving it? No matter what, he would need to devote all his effort. Even if he failed in the end, at least, he would have tried to the best of his abilities.
Blood One nodded in satisfaction upon seeing the determination in Tang Wulin’s gaze. “You’re continuously creating miracles. We, as your seniors, are more than willing to bear witness to the miracles. So, put in more effort. Your progress has already exceeded my prediction, so you truly deserve to be the leader of the current Shrek Seven Monsters. You’ll need to work harder and spare no effort in elevating yourself. You bear great responsibilities beyond the Blood God Army. It’s no exaggeration to say your future is closely tied to the existence of Shrek Academy and the Tang Sect. You’ll be bearing a heavy burden as you embark on a long journey! Nevertheless, you can ignore the burden for now because you’re not ready to take it on yet. What you must do now is to ensure that you become qualified enough to do so.”
“Yes! I understand.”
Blood One’s face suddenly cracked into a faint smile. “Your success in defeating Blood Nine yesterday has revealed your current ability. I think that the mission goal which I arranged for you earlier is a little too easy. Your mission has now changed. You must become the champion of the soul master battle and be one of the top three contestants of the mecha battle in the Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge. Otherwise, I’ll ground you, and you’re not allowed to leave the army for a year.”
Tang Wulin’s lips twitched once. “Blood One, you’re…”
Blood One waved his hand and interrupted. “This is an order. As a soldier, you must learn to obey. That’s all.” He left upon saying that, leaving Tang Wulin behind with a bewildered expression on his face.
His initial mission was tough enough, yet Blood One had just increased the difficulty a notch higher! Tang Wulin suddenly felt that his decision to challenge Blood Nine was rather foolish. He was already feeling quite stressed. Now, he had just gotten himself into a more stressful and messier situation. It was truly a case of ‘one is one’s own worst enemy’.
Blood Three spoke smilingly, “He has high demands on you precisely because he thinks highly of you. You must work hard. All of us are rooting for you.”
Tang Wulin spoke with a bitter smile, “Can you please stop him from thinking so highly of me then? It’s so high till it’s beyond my abilities!”
Blood Three smiled and said, “Tell him yourself for only you can convince him. Actually, you should go out and take a stroll. Don’t you wish to show off your general-rank star to your friends? There are fewer than a dozen major generals in our entire army. Your military rank is on equal footing with the deputy regimental commander. Don’t worry, no one will be jealous of you. They’ve all benefited from you recently. According to the regimental commander and Blood One, the entire army has already been notified that any event related to this life tide is due to your meritorious service. You’re definitely the center of attention in the army right now and also the hero that everyone is grateful of.”
“Alright. I’ll be explaining some of the privileges of our Blood Gods next. If you think that you might lose your status in a month, then you should use your privileges soon. Firstly, the Blood Gods are given a thirty-percent discount when purchasing the army’s resources using the merit points. Secondly, as a Blood God, you’re allowed to instruct those below your rank. Blood One is allowed to exercise the regimental commander’s authority…”
Tang Wulin had already completed the data transfer between his Blood God Bracelets as he was listening to Blood Three’s explanation of the privileges. He did not exactly feel proud upon putting on the gold-red Blood God Bracelet. As mentioned by Blood One, he would really need to work hard to preserve all that he had gained.
Subconsciously, he clenched his fists. Tang Wulin waved his arms gently once. A month later, he would fight Blood Nine again! Before winning the next battle with Blood Nine, Tang Wulin refused to acknowledge himself as the true Blood Nine.
Perhaps, he truly stood a chance. He squinted his eyes as he shifted his consciousness to his Dragon Core subconsciously while clenching his fists once again.
Tang Wulin prepared to return to his living quarters to continue cultivating after listening to Blood Three’s guidance. Out of the blue, the Blood God Bracelet vibrated gently. It was his first call with the new Blood God Bracelet. He took a glance and noticed it was from Long Yuxue.
“Where are you?”
