A cloud of blood mist exploded over the sky. Simultaneously, a valiant dragon’s roar was heard on the entire competition stage. An enormous shadow of a Golden Dragon with a savage expression appeared vaguely behind Tang Wulin’s back.
Although the shadow vanished as soon as it appeared, it left behind a profound impression on everyone.
“This… It’s a little domineering, isn’t it?” The commentator was already dumbstruck as this was the Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge’s final. It was the first round that was broadcasted live. Hardly anyone was prepared for such an intense shock.
The commentators understood the soul masters’ world naturally, but no matter how well they understood it, they were in disbelief as they currently witnessed the scene before them.
It was the final stage of the competition where the contestants were chosen from the divisions. Undoubtedly, no one was weak. Despite such a scenario, it took only two strikes to kill the opponent! The fatal strike was truly stunning. In addition to the cool dragon-shaped shadow and deafening dragon’s roar at the end, it was truly an eye-opening stimulation for the senses.
This person’s fighting capacity was absolutely terrifying!
The audience, in front of the screen, watching the competition could not help but feel suffocated!
It was truly a suffocating feeling. They felt the person on the screen had such an exceedingly terrifying presence which influenced them in such a way that they could barely breathe.
A gigantic ‘victory’ sign was displayed on the screen. Although there were two attacks, they were both completed in just over a second. It was absolutely the shortest competition among all the competitions held today, and possibly among this year’s competitions.
The golden wings on Tang Wulin’s back retracted. The large, golden words of ‘Thirty-three’, shimmering with a golden radiance, were suspended above his head. After he retracted his wings, a shadow flashed once and he vanished along with it. Tang Wulin was victorious in the first round of the elimination tournament.
‘The ability of a six-ring Soul Emperor is rather impressive!’ That was Tang Wulin’s assessment of his opponent.
Although he was capable of a quick win over his opponent, in reality, he knew there was not much of a disparity between his opponent and himself. He was capable of dealing with his opponent so quickly because his opponent was incapable of assessing Tang Wulin’s ability.
All of mankind’s strength and endurance had its limits, at least, within a certain cultivation-based rank. Yet, the speed and strength displayed by Tang Wulin earlier were, undoubtedly, non-human such that the opponent’s assessment was incorrect. If the opponent were capable of positioning himself in a defense position, then he should be able to withstand for a longer period of time.
Today’s battle was a test for Tang Wulin. A test of his current strength and speed control.
For the past few days, he had been trying hard to control his strength. The deeper his awareness ventured, the more surprised he was to find the benefits brought by his tenth layer Golden Dragon King Seal.
The initial smash feature of his right Golden Dragon Claw and tear feature of his left Golden Dragon Claw could only be triggered with a certain level of probability. However, these features could now be completely triggered by his control. His ability to control his overall performance and the Golden Dragon King’s strength was much better than before.
He could move his body at high speeds. The speed which he displayed earlier was purely his charging force, yet other soul masters of the same rank were incapable of that, let alone unleash an attack at high speed. On the other hand, Tang Wulin was completely unaffected.
He spread his wings to reduce his charging force. He felt only a slight discomfort for a short while. He managed to return to his normal state after circulating his blood essence power.
In a sense, Tang Wulin was not considered wholly human anymore. His body’s endurance could not be compared to a human’s. In fact, even a Title Douluo could not measure up to his body’s endurance now. As a result, he achieved victory easily.
He left the competition arena and logged out from the network to experience the explosive strength he had during the battle earlier. The corners of Tang Wulin’s lips cracked into a faint smile. ‘Very good. I’ve advanced another step in my strength control.’
He set a goal for himself which was to win the battle against Blood Nine in less than a month!
He would first need to learn how to control the strength derived from the Golden Dragon King’s tenth layer seal properly in order to defeat Blood Nine once again.
He should only consider the other things after he learned to control himself well.
He enjoyed the explosive feeling very much. It seemed like his Golden Dragon King Bloodline enjoyed the feeling as well. He supposed it was the Golden Dragon King’s inherent quality!
He got dressed and left the living quarters. Tang Wulin walked all the way to Blood One’s living quarters. It was situated close to him. Then, he sent a text message to Blood One seeking his guidance.
Blood One’s reply came ten minutes later when Tang Wulin was about to leave. Blood One replied that he could see him now.
Tang Wulin knocked on the door.
The door opened.
Tang Wulin walked into Blood One’s room and found Blood One sitting cross-legged as if he had been meditating.
“Sorry for bothering your cultivation. It’s quite rude of me,” apologized Tang Wulin.
Blood One smiled and opened his eyes. “There’s nothing to apologize for. I’ve cultivated till my bottleneck, so there’s utterly no possibility for me to break through anymore. It may possibly be a matter of life and death for me if I attempt a breakthrough. The possibility of life, in this case, is not even one percent. When the day comes, I’ll invite you to witness the ceremony. Perhaps, it will be helpful to you.”
Tang Wulin spoke with a bitter smile, “I hope that day never comes as the Tang Sect still needs your support!”
Blood One spoke, “Alright, let’s not talk about that anymore. Anything I can help you with?”
Tang Wulin answered, “I sense that I may have another breakthrough in my spiritual power recently, but I can’t tell which level it is. I wish to ask you some techniques on how to use spiritual power.”
“Another breakthrough? Breakthrough to which level this time?” asked Blood One.
Tang Wulin replied, “I seem to be able to sense some energy elements now.”
“You can sense the presence of energy elements? What sort of breakthrough is this? You should’ve possessed this ability already when you can sense the existence of spiritual power!” Blood One raised his brows.
Tang Wulin coughed once and spoke, “I mean manifestation. In other words, I can see the colors of different energy molecules in the air.”
Blood One was stunned for a moment. Soon after, his eyes suddenly widened while his pupils constricted in an obvious manner. Tang Wulin watched as Blood One’s eyes turned purple-gold with two streams of purple-gold radiances enshrouding Tang Wulin’s body as if those radiances were solid.
Tang Wulin frowned slightly, otherwise, he barely reacted. He did not try to evade as his eyes were similarly rippling in purple-gold which was far less intense than Blood One’s purple-gold. However, the radiance that lingered in his eyes was crystal clear.
Those two streams of purple-gold radiance made only the slightest contact when Tang Wulin immediately sensed a gush of expansive spiritual power wrap around his body in an instant. He did not feel much discomfort, but he felt completely transparent as though he could be seen through by someone.
The Dragon Core in his body suddenly began bouncing violently, while his initial purple eyes were immediately fused in a gold-red layer. A gush of fierce and tyrannical energy burst forth from his body, while the feeling of being seen through immediately vanished. Tang Wulin only felt the blood essence in his body surging wildly while a deep dragon’s roar was emitted from all over his body as if something was displaying its dominance.
“Ugh… I didn’t mean to do that,” said Tang Wulin with an innocent expression.
On the other hand, Blood One cast him a peculiar look. Blood One’s Purple Demon Eyes were retracted.
“You’ve already achieved the higher order of the Spirit Abyss’ spiritual power? How is that possible? Even if you had begun cultivating in your mother’s womb, you couldn’t have advanced so quickly!”
One could only imagine Tang Wulin’s spiritual rank at present judging by Blood One’s shock. Blood One was especially stunned when he discovered that the bloodline power in Tang Wulin’s body could surprisingly fuse together with his spiritual rank.
Blood One squinted his eyes and spoke with a deep voice, “There’s no need for you to evaluate the specifics of your spiritual power. The ability to sense the energy elements signifies that you’ve entered the higher order of the Spirit Abyss. At the same time, you’ve touched the threshold of the Spirit Domain.”
Tang Wulin spoke, “So, what should I do after this?”
Blood One spoke indifferently, “Just continue to feel. When you can finally sense every energy molecule in your surroundings thoroughly, you can then attempt to move them with your spiritual power. Use your spiritual power to move them without using your soul power or blood essence power. Then, invoke a sympathetic response from them. Once you’ve completed this step, your Spirit Domain will be fully formed. The process is long and boring, but your spiritual power will grow on its own at your present rank. There’s no need to rush. Let nature takes its course.”
“Yes,” responded Tang Wulin. It was better for him not to do things aimlessly like a headless chicken. With Blood One’s guidance, he would continue cultivating as usual. Hence, it was rather convenient for him.
Blood One looked at Tang Wulin as the gaze in his eyes shifted. “Something seemed to have happened to you. Your cultivation base has been elevated. Your blood essence power is denser than before. Furthermore, there’s something else that’s different. It’s as though your blood essence power is alive.”
