Ma Shan was also stunned for a moment. In his mind, he was certain that Tang Wulin’s small body size would be able to dodge his attack! This was not supposed to happen even if they were to confront each other without holding back. What was happening?
Tang Wulin crashed into the ground. As sparks flew before his eyes, he was left feeling speechless. This was the unfortunate consequence of him being unfamiliar with his body.
However, he discovered that his ability to take a beating was even more powerful. Such a heavy blow to his body felt like just a mild shock with minimal discomfort. He turned over and leaped up.
“Boom, boom, boom!”
During the frontal collision, Tang Wulin attempted to utilize his dragon wings. He was trying to exercise control over his body after his transformation, but his ability to do so was still not comparable to when he knew his own body after all!
He was blasted away by Ma Shan’s impact over and over again every time as he stood up from the ground. It had only taken a moment for his entire body to be covered in injuries.
Even so, something incredible was unfolding before them. Every time Tang Wulin was blasted away by Ma Shan or slammed against the ground with a soul skill, he thought that the competition was about to end. Yet, Tang Wulin still managed to get up each time and acted as if nothing had happened. His fighting abilities had not weakened at all.
His post-transformation body was genuinely difficult to control, especially the Dragon Core that turned into a heart shape. The blood essence power being channeled out was too powerful. When Tang Wulin made a move, the energy surging out from his Dragon Core infused into his body and made him lose control immediately. The surge was so overwhelming, there was no way he could use his soul skill. His strength was so powerful he could not control it.
Even though Ma Shan was a pure strength-type soul master, he was equipped with rich combat experience which allowed him to use all sorts of combat skills endlessly. Moreover, Tang Wulin realized that Ma Shan was a Tang Sect disciple. His Controlling Crane Capturing Dragon technique was cultivated with such perfection. The Controlling Crane Capturing Dragon technique was very effective when used against an opponent like Tang Wulin with poor control over his body and could frequently be used to drag him from the side.
Ma Shan watched as Tang Wulin dashed over again foolishly, so he bent his back and turned his body to the side while moved his hands in a circle to guide Tang Wulin’s body into losing balance. His right hand made a scooping movement and grabbed Tang Wulin’s ankle. Then, he slammed Tang Wulin’s body ferociously onto the floor.
A deep hole appeared on the ground as a result of the impact. Ma Shan raised his leg and stamped down just in time to be blocked by Tang Wulin’s hands who turned over in time and pushed away.
They had already repeated such scenarios countless times. Ma Shan knew he was exerting enough strength to break steel into pieces, but Tang Wulin acted like it was nothing. He could always get up unaided, and despite looking a little shaky, he would continue to fight.
Ma Shan was truly at a loss for words. Tang Wulin would be on the defensive almost every time they clashed and he was only able to block Ma Shan occasionally.
Ma Shan discovered that Tang Wulin’s fighting technique appeared extremely undeveloped, making him incapable of even controlling himself, but during a real full-frontal collision, Ma Shan’s strength was still not holding up. He was unable to take the upper hand even in the form of his martial soul avatar.
What was the boy really up to?
While Ma Shan was dumbfounded, Tang Wulin kept adjusting to his new situation. Being under such continuous attacks was very painful, of course, but his Dragon Core heart pumped out bloodline power every time, allowing him to heal quickly. Moreover, his bones and muscles were extremely tough so he could recover after suffering such heavy blows.
‘If this continues, this boy will tire me to death!” His soul power also had its limits, even if he had a Soul Douluo’s cultivation base. Moreover, Ma Shan had maintained his martial soul avatar state the entire time he was fighting Tang Wulin.
Ma Shan decided not to exhaust himself anymore.
The eighth soul ring on his body was finally glowing for the very first time. Grabbing Tang Wulin’s ankle once again, he suddenly leaped up, taking both of them skyward. Ma Shan’s aura changed abruptly, and Tang Wulin instantly felt an explosion of power, like a volcanic eruption, pushing against his body.
Ghastly, pale white flames were burning on Ma Shan’s body. These were a form of heatless fire, but Tang Wulin could clearly sense that the power radiating from Ma Shan’s body had increased by at least threefold.
What was that? Was it the legendary strength flame? It was the strength of perfection!
As Tang Wulin was dumbstruck with amazement, the fifth golden soul ring on his body was also glowing for the first time. He had no idea what this golden soul ring granted him, but he could sense subconsciously that he would need to depend on its strength to brace for the impending threat.
It came from his tenth seal, so this golden soul ring was supposed to have an even more powerful amplification effect on him than his four previous soul skills. What would its effect be, though?
Immediately, Ma Shan could sense an extraordinary power radiating from Tang Wulin while the boy’s entire body suddenly trembled violently. In truth, it was not Tang Wulin who was trembling but Ma Shan himself.
Ma Shan’s strength flame, which had just been elevated, greatly amplified his own power. His hands grabbed Tang Wulin’s ankles separately in an attempt to tear him apart and bring the battle to a close.
Yet, he discovered that as he held onto Tang Wulin’s ankles, his arms began to tremble uncontrollably after Tang Wulin’s fifth golden soul ring was illuminated. Soon after, Ma Shan’s entire body shook violently. There was an explosion and a gold-red radiance burst out.
Despite his Soul Douluo-rank cultivation base, Ma Shan was immediately blasted away by the terrifying blast. Tang Wulin was astonished. He felt the bloodline power in his body had a unique pulse, producing a high-frequency vibration and unleashing it explosively. The gold-red burst had a blast radius of more than fifty meters. Ma Shan’s body was immediately caught up by the gold-red light after being blown away. A series of violent blasts loudly pushed him backward. The booming sounds were heard in the sky again and again before he was finally thrown to the edge of the competition stage, colliding with the protective shield. His body bounced off of the shield and he landed on the ground roughly.
This was absolutely unprecedented and shockingly so. Yet, there was only a bitter smile on Tang Wulin’s face, because the blood essence power and soul power in his body had been depleted entirely after he had unleashed so much.
What was that? Even though it was rather impressive, he did not have the strength to continue anymore after that one technique!
He descended from the sky. With his soul power and blood essence power exhausted, the system determined that Tang Wulin did not have the energy to continue fighting, so he was immediately transferred out of the competition arena.
It was his first loss!
This was his first defeat after he had joined the Star Dou Battle Network, and it was mired in confusion.
There was no doubt that the battle had helped him learn to exercise control over his strength, while his bloodline soul ring’s fifth soul skill had a very impressive effect. Yet, what was going on with the technique? Could it be that all his strength would be emptied once the soul skill was unleashed? It was only a one-off deal for such a soul skill no matter how powerful it was!
Tang Wulin was defeated in a baffling manner while Ma Shan had won in a similarly baffling manner. He was transferred out a moment after Tang Wulin. He stared at Tang Wulin in bewilderment. “What…what’s with that soul skill of yours? Why was I left completely helpless? Strange. Very strange!”
Tang Wulin spoke with a bitter smile, “I just recently attained this soul skill, so I have yet to discover its function. Commander Ma, that’s all for today. I’ll go back and meditate on this for a moment. We shall try again next time.”
Tang Wulin bid farewell to Ma Shan as he hastily logged out from the Star Dou Battle Network. He returned to his living quarters and crossed his legs to meditate.
The battle today was very helpful for him to make sense of his new condition. There was no doubt that his control over his entire body was greatly reduced due to his all-rounded elevation, but this was not necessarily a bad thing. His fighting capacity could certainly be greatly improved by this change once he could exercise full control with his original base number. Nevertheless, what was that fifth bloodline soul skill of his? What was truly going on with that?
