Chapter 1027: Such Bizarre Tastes?

Blood One deserved his title of being a Limit Douluo for he could see the change in Tang Wulin’s body after such a brief moment. Tang Wulin sniggered and said, “There is some elevation that is mainly from my bloodline power. I seem to have broken through a bottleneck recently. Only that after my breakthrough, it’s difficult to control my strength. Alright, I shall go back to cultivate now.”
Blood One spoke, “The final stage of the competition has begun. Did you take part in the competition?”
Tang Wulin answered, “The first round is completed, and I won. The finals are rather interesting where everyone is assigned a number. I’m thirty-three.”
Blood One spoke, “Don’t forget your mission. I honor my words.”
“Yes,” answered Tang Wulin with slight helplessness.
Blood One gazed after the departing Tang Wulin as he decided to utilize his authority to take a look at the competition’s recordings. He felt that Tang Wulin’s transformation was huge and exceeded his prediction by a vast difference.
Tang Wulin did not return to his own living quarters upon leaving Blood One’s room. Ever since the battle with Ma Shan, he had been staying in his quarters to cultivate. Apart from that, he participated in the competition. So, it was a little boring for him. He made the decision to take a stroll outside, then he would make a call to Gu Yuena. Anyhow, he had adequate merits now, since Ma Shan paid him a large sum. Furthermore, the competition today inspired him to forge his mecha.
He was in a different state as compared to others, so the function of his mecha was different naturally.
He boarded the elevator and exited the Blood God Battalion. Tang Wulin pondered for a moment before he removed the epaulets on his shoulders.
He was too young which made it conspicuous for him to wear his major general rank. Although Ma Shan was a hot-tempered man, in reality, Tang Wulin’s identity would be doubted as well had he encountered other soldiers. He could only avoid such troubles if his rank was announced to the entire army.
He removed his epaulets so as to avoid any trouble. He aroused some attention occasionally as the act of not wearing his epaulets was considered breaking the military regulations, only that it was a lighter offense.
It went well for him at the rest area.
Tang Wulin arrived at the rest area to find the place bustling with activities. After all, it was the only leisure and entertainment place for the soldiers of the Blood God Army.
Tang Wulin ordered a drink from the bar and took a seat before taking a sip. The drink tasted sweet and was refreshing as it glided down his throat which made him warm and happy at once.
He used his Blood God Bracelet to dial Gu Yuena’s communicator number as he patiently waited for a response.
As expected, Gu Yuena’s voice was heard at the other end after a short while.
Her voice sounded soft and sweet with a little surprise in her tone. “Father, I miss you. When are you coming back?”
Tang Wulin immediately felt all the fatigue and spiritual stress vanish. “The day after tomorrow. I’m going to visit you the day after tomorrow, is that okay?”
“Awesome!” Gu Yuena called out in excitement, “I shall wait for you then.”
“Hmm.” Tang Wulin talked about some fun things that happened to him in the army. He mentioned how he ‘accidentally’ defeated Blood Nine and talked about how Ma Shan had a misunderstanding regarding his military rank. He talked incessantly as he shared his joy in the army.
Gu Yuena listened in all apparent seriousness and occasionally chimed in with some concern. Tang Wulin felt all warm and fuzzy in his heart while his lips cracked into a warm smile.
All of a sudden, he felt someone’s aura approaching very close to him. In reflex, he turned his hand over to grab the person.
“Hehe. Ouch!” The laughter lasted only for a moment before it turned into an agonizing scream.
A strong and powerful figure was immediately pulled over by Tang Wulin and pinned against the table.
“Father, what happened?” Gu Yuena cried out in alarm at the other end of the communicator.
Tang Wulin hastily spoke, “It’s fine, it’s fine. Just a colleague fooling around with me.” He loosened the grip on Jiang Wuyue’s hand as he spoke and cast him a glare.
“It’s great that you’re fine. Father, do come over earlier on the day then. I’ll be waiting for you.”
“Sure.” Tang Wulin hanged up the communicator before he looked at Jiang Wuyue whose expression was all peculiar as he rubbed his wrist.
“What are you looking at?” said Tang Wulin in a gruff tone as he was not in a good mood since his conversation with Gu Yuena was interrupted.
Jiang Wuyue raised his brows. “Say, how old are you anyway? You have a daughter already? She sounds grown up! How old were you then? You truly are…”
“Shut up!” Tang Wulin spoke grumpily, “She’s my girlfriend.”
Jiang Wuyue was stunned for a moment, then the expression on his face turned even more peculiar. “Tang Wulin, oh Tang Wulin. I truly didn’t expect you to have such a dark mind underneath that handsome face of yours. You’ve such bizarre tastes. You’re truly a case of a good-looking man with bad intentions, huh!”
A cold radiance shimmered in Tang Wulin’s eyes. “Are you looking to get beaten up?”
Jiang Wuyue sniggered. “However, please teach me, how did you do that? How did you get your girlfriend to call you ‘father’? You have a secret technique?”
Tang Wulin glared at him. “You think too much. She has amnesia, so she retains the memories of a child.”
“Hmm…” Jiang Wuyue looked at Tang Wulin in astonishment. “Amnesia? How did that happen?”
A painful expression flashed past Tang Wulin’s face. “When she saved me.”
Jiang Wuyue’s expression changed this time. He spoke with a guilty expression, “I’m sorry, I didn’t know… I’m so sorry!”
Tang Wulin shook his head. “Perhaps, it’s for the best. Frankly, I don’t know if I want her to recover. I’m working very hard here, and the situation now seems rather good. At least, I can always have her by my side.”
Jiang Wuyue’s gaze shifted ever so slightly. “By your side? You’re not bringing her to this place, are you? I understand now. No wonder you’re always hoping to get promoted to be eligible for a leave of absence. It’s so you can go and visit her?”
“Hmm.” Tang Wulin nodded because there was nothing much for him to hide. “She’s at the Fire Basin. I’ve already visited her once and I’ll visit her again the day after tomorrow.”
Jiang Wuyue suddenly remembered something. “Oh right, I learned from Yuxue that you’re a major general now?” He looked at Tang Wulin’s epaulets as he was speaking, but there was nothing there for him to see.
Tang Wulin nodded. “That’s right! You’ve to address me ‘sir’ now.”
Jiang Wuyue immediately felt his mouth was parched. It had only been a few months! The boy addressed him by ‘sir’ when they first met in the beginning. Yet right now, the tables were turned.
“You’re progressing a little too quickly, aren’t you? What on earth did you do? How did you get promoted so quickly?”
Tang Wulin answered, “Hasn’t Yuxue told you? I’m Blood Nine of the Blood God Battalion now. The Blood Gods are all conferred the rank of a general. That’s why.”
“You defeated Blood Nine?” Jiang Wuyue stared at him in bewilderment. “Boy, how dare you still spar with me when you already have the ability to defeat Blood Nine? Where’s your compassion?”
Tang Wulin rolled his eyes. “I thought you’re supposed to praise me for my powerful ability? What’s wrong with your brain that’s making you behave as such?”
“Praise my *ss. I only remember that you hit me.” Jiang Wuyue had an aggrieved expression.
Tang Wulin’s gaze shifted as his lips suddenly cracked into a warm smile. “Wuyue, let’s view it this way. It’s genuinely my fault for hitting you the other day. I’ll give you an opportunity to take revenge. Let’s go to the Star Dou Battle Network. I’ll allow you to hit me as much as you want so long as you pay. I won’t dodge, defend, or even counterattack. What do you think? You can hit me to your satisfaction as long as you pay me one thousand Federation coins per minute.”
With doubt, Jiang Wuyue looked at Tang Wulin. “Really? So kind of you?” The Federation coins were not that important to him for there was utterly no need for money in the Blood God Army. Besides, they were well treated and were rewarded with a fixed, high income every month.
Tang Wulin heaved a sigh and spoke with disdain, “I truly didn’t expect that you don’t even have the courage to hit me. A person like you makes me wonder how you managed to be the close combat battalion commander. Are you the only one in the whole Iron Blood Battalion? I should ask Brother Ma Shan later.”
