“F*ck! Are you trying to provoke me? Who says I don’t have the guts? I’ll take you up on your taunt today, but let’s be clear, you can’t counterattack, hit back, dodge, or defend, right?”
“Yes! I’ve always kept my word. If you don’t trust me, we can sign an agreement right now and have the army witness it,” said Tang Wulin with a smile. When he knew that someone was about to be tricked again, he felt happy.
“Alright. I don’t need an official document. It’s enough if you put it in writing for me. If you go against the rules, you’ll be breaching my trust,” said Jiang Wuyue with a fierce look.
Tang Wulin willingly wrote him an agreement of sorts. Jiang Wuyue went over it carefully. After poring over its contents and finding it satisfactory, he signed it.
Then, he fished out a stack of Federation coins from his pocket and toyed with it in front of Tang Wulin. “We’ll have a thirty-minute match first. Today, big brother will make you understand why roses are red!”
He had been beaten to a pulp by Tang Wulin the other day. So, he had been nursing his grudge all this while. When he heard that Tang Wulin defeated Blood Nine, he knew that he did not stand much of a chance against Tang Wulin. Where could he find such a good opportunity? He instinctively felt that Tang Wulin had an ulterior motive behind it. However, when he thought about the fact that Tang Wulin loved money, he felt at ease.
Tang Wulin received the Federation coins and raised his eyebrows toward Jiang Wuyue. “Let the tempest rage!”
They did not pick the Star Dou Battle Network. Instead, they were on the competition stage where the army held its actual combat drills. Tang Wulin faced Jiang Wuyue’s attacks which were like a furious storm.
After Jiang Wuyue sent Tang Wulin flying with a slap, he seriously believed that Tang Wulin would not fight back. He did not even unleash his scales.
His slap sent Tang Wulin flying dozens of meters to finally crash on the floor.
Tang Wulin did a roll on the floor and stood up. He patted the non-existent dust off his clothes and raised his eyebrows toward Jiang Wuyue again. “Did you not eat? I didn’t feel anything just now.”
Jiang Wuyue was completely speechless. He knew that this fellow was tough, but his slap just now would have reduced an iron ball to an iron disc! However, this fellow said that he felt nothing.
“You’re making me do this!”
“Be quick about it, you’ve only paid for thirty minutes. Time is short, and the mission can’t wait!”
“Boom! Boom! Boom!”
“Pow! Pow! Pow!”
Tang Wulin’s body was sent flying with every blow. He crashed heavily onto the floor each time. Repeatedly, he got up on his feet as if nothing had happened.
In the beginning, Jiang Wuyue had only been hitting him with his bare hands. Later, he donned his battle armor, used his weapons, and even his Fusion Soul Skills. He continuously strengthened his attacks on Tang Wulin. Nevertheless, Tang Wulin managed to get back on his feet every time. Other than being slightly bruised, he seemed surprisingly unharmed.
When Jiang Wuyue sent Tang Wulin flying again with his giant hammer, he did not continue with his attacks.
“Are you really okay, young man? You sure you don’t have any internal injuries?”
Jiang Wuyue looked at Tang Wulin with a puzzled expression. “Don’t you throw your life away just for the sake of money!”
Tang Wulin said drily, “You’re exaggerating. Look.” As he said this, a layer of golden-red glow immediately shone on his body. In the next moment, all his bruises disappeared. Everything about him was back to normal as if nothing ever happened.
“This… Are you even human?” Jiang Wuyue was speechless.
“Please call me a god. Vent all your anger on me with all you’ve got. You have another minute before you’ll have to pay to continue. Don’t forget that.”
“I don’t believe this. I’ll definitely pay you what’s due at the end.” Jiang Wuyue raised his giant hammers and charged toward Tang Wulin.
Was Tang Wulin in pain? Under the attacks of a strength-system Soul Emperor, he would be lying if he said that it was not painful. However, what this pain brought him was more pleasure instead.
After Tang Wulin realized that he could not control his own power, he gave Mu Ye a call on his soul communicator. He asked him about the techniques to control his own body.
As the Body Sect’s master, he knew the most when it came to developing one’s body. Mu Ye had an idea.
His view was that the younger generation of powerhouses whose bases had improved so quickly that their control power could not catch up with their own bodies. Hence, what Tang Wulin needed was just some time to coordinate himself, and everything would return to normal. During the coordination process, the best way was to stimulate the body’s potential. That would bring out all the improved abilities in him.
The method was simple. Just like forging a metal, humans also needed forging. The Body Sect’s cultivation method had always been about forging one’s body continuously to make one’s body the most powerful weapon.
Mu Ye had told Tang Wulin that with his body’s condition, what he needed to do was to look for a person with a similar cultivation base. He had to let himself be hit by the person’s full force and ensure the hits are all evenly distributed over his body. That would stimulate his body’s instinctive reflexes which would enhance his potential. At the same time, his body would be able to harmonize better with his bloodline power. Each blow he received was a process where his body harmonized with his bloodline. The reactions in his muscles, while he was being beaten with the changes in his bloodline, would strengthen his control over his own body.
Even if Jiang Wuyue had not turned up today, he had planned on finding Jiang Wuyue. Ma Shan’s attacks were slightly too powerful for his taste. He would not be able to take them if he did not defend himself properly. In this case, Jiang Wuyue’s attacks were just right.
Tang Wulin had turned himself into a human punching bag. In return, he also received a great deal of benefits from it.
After being hit for half an hour, he clearly felt his reflexes improve such that it was in tandem with his explosive strength. Throughout the process of being hit, his blood essence power was clearly strengthened. He had vivid sensations of the minute changes in his muscles, bones, and meridian vessels.
That was why he felt more than happy to let Jiang Wuyue continue hitting him.
Jiang Wuyue enjoyed himself to the fullest. He was finally able to release all his pent-up frustrations within him. He felt increasingly shocked with each attack he landed. He could not imagine how a human body could be this tough. Tang Wulin was simply like a cockroach. He could not be destroyed!
Even a body built with the best rare metals would have crumbled long ago under his powerful attacks. However, Tang Wulin was unscathed.
The one who was hit would feel pain, but the one hitting would also tire! After hitting Tang Wulin for a full two hours, most of his soul power was already spent. He was drenched in sweat.
“I can’t go on. Let’s stop here. I’ll pay the bill. Big brother is satisfied,” said a panting Jiang Wuyue.
However, Tang Wulin was still brimming with energy. He sighed and said, “Wuyue! A man shouldn’t say that he can’t, he should only say that he doesn’t want to. How can you not have the stamina?”
“You!” Jiang Wuyue was truly exhausted. If he were not, he would have loved to hammer that little white face of his. How could he be so wicked?
“We’ll do this again tomorrow.” He put on his clothes slowly and left before Jiang Wuyue. Currently, he felt completely relaxed, as if he had just gone for a massage.
Although every part of his body screamed in pain, he could feel that under his squeezing, the blood essence power within his Dragon Core was now intimately linked with his body. Currently, he only wished to go back to his room to meditate and coordinate his body. If he could get a hold of the changes in his body, he would greatly improve his control over his own body.
The next day, Tang Wulin was ready for his first match in the final rounds, the mecha battle!
Under Ling Wuyue’s guidance, Tang Wulin’s mastery over a mecha could no longer be compared to what it was before. The mechas were more or less the same, but the more important issue was his control over them and the combination of his martial soul with the mecha. With Ling Wuyue’s guidance, Tang Wulin could control a mecha as easily as a hand directing its fingers. He was also attuned to the mecha such that it was in better harmony with his body.
The Devour the World effect which his sixth soul skill brought him was the best. Unleashing the Devour the World would immediately raise his cultivation base threefold. If he did not possess this power before, how could he possibly have defeated Blood Nine?
All these could now be incorporated into the mecha battle.
He entered the standard mecha and picked a spear as his weapon. After Tang Wulin tried out the mecha, he could not help but complain in his heart. It was too cumbersome.
The standard mecha was huge. It carried more power and its weight gave it more destructive power. However, it was designed for ordinary mecha masters. For soul masters at Tang Wulin’s rank, the weight of the mecha was insignificant.
It was redundant!
No wonder ordinary red mechas were only six meters tall. Some were not even that tall. The larger the mecha was, the less nimble it became.
Tang Wulin had set a goal for himself which was to build a black mecha that was less than six meters tall. His only requirement was that he could still fit inside it with his battle armor on. For him, the more important role the mecha played was in enhancing and prolonging his ability to battle. The other roles were not as important. His strength was already at an extremely terrifying level. That was why his mecha must be able to bear its own strength.
