‘Is this my fifth bloodline soul ring skill?’ Although it was not a Blood Soul Fusion Skill, Tang Wulin clearly felt that it was more terrifying.
He began to understand this skill of his. It did not seem to be a mere battle skill. Instead, it has a terrifying ability that could be incorporated into any of his skills! Other than the fact that it consumed a great deal of his energy, it was perfect.
The Golden Dragon Blast! He figured that he should name it as such. Although Tang Wulin had done all he could to control the amount of power he infused into his attacks, he had expended more than sixty percent of his soul power and bloodline power after using this skill twice. In other words, this skill could only be used if he wanted explosive strength. With his current cultivation base, it seemed to be the case.
Even so, Tang Wulin’s heart was filled with excitement. It meant that he possessed a super powerful, explosive skill!
Gu Yuena tied her long silver hair up softly as she sat by the bank of the small river. She looked at the middle-aged Fire Basin women who were doing their laundry on the opposite side. Her gaze seemed lost.
A dash of pain flashed silently past the depths of her eyes.
However, a ray of hope followed soon after.
‘He’s coming to see me.’
“Why aren’t you fusing with me?” The gentle voice sounded out of nowhere. She was the only one who could hear it.
“I’ve already lost to you. You can merge with me anytime you want! Why aren’t you doing it?” came the voice again.
If Tang Wulin could hear this, he would definitely be shocked. It was because the voice belonged to his little sister with whom he was particularly close. It was Na’er’s voice.
Gu Yue did not respond. She continued looking silently into the faraway distance.
“We’re supposed to merge back as one. It was the intense explosion the other day that separated us. Since we’ve healed through the Skyreach Velvet Chrysanthemum, why don’t you merge with me again?” Na’er’s voice was filled with puzzlement.
Gu Yue kept her silence. Endless thoughts seemed to be contained within her pair of purple eyes. However, there was also an inkling of determination that could not be denied.
“What’s… wrong with you?” came Na’er’s question. Her voice started taking on an edge.
“I should’ve killed him. I can only fully immerse myself in what I need to do after I killed him,” Gu Yue finally spoke.
“No, you won’t,” Na’er confidently said. “If you’ve defeated me, it means that there’s no way that you’d attack him. That’s why I’m certain that you won’t.”
Gu Yue was silent for a while. Suddenly, she said, “It’s impossible for you to stop me now. You must know that I can only awaken the God Dragon’s genes by killing him, thereby resurrecting the Dragon God. The Divine Realm is no more. This is the only way for us to create a Divine Realm of our own. We can lead our clansmen and have our own world. This isn’t a personal matter. It’s connected to the fates of all the soul beasts, including all the beasts in this spatial plane. If we want to do this, we must destroy mankind. Make them powerless to stop us.”
Disappointment crept into Na’er’s voice, “I know that. That’s what we should do. Your memories are also my memories. But, can we really do it? If we do it, it makes us the same as those humans. Were the deities really in the wrong during the battle in the Divine Realm? Are we really blameless?”
Gu Yue sighed. “In the end, you still consider yourself a human?”
Na’er said drily, “If you have to put it that way, I won’t deny it. I was initially the human part when you separated from me. You haven’t told me why you’re not willing to fuse with me. You should know this. If you don’t fuse with me, and if by chance you’re going to do something bad to him, I’ll stop you no matter what.”
Gu Yue’s gaze turned misty. “You don’t understand.”
Na’er said, “Then make me!”
Gu Yue shook her head lightly. “No, I can’t tell you. You’ll know when the day comes.”
Na’er said, “How long are you planning on keeping this a secret from him?”
Gu Yue stared blankly at the distance far away. “If it’s possible, it’ll be forever.”
Na’er was slightly stunned. Suddenly, she laughed and it sounded like silver bells ringing. “See, I told you that you won’t kill him.”
Gu Yue said, “But you know, apart from me, all our other clansmen want him dead. We should get back.”
“You’re leaving?” Na’er’s voice clearly trembled. “If you leave, what’ll become of him? If you leave now, he’s definitely going to know that we’ve regained our memories!”
Gu Yue said drily, “I have no choice but to leave. Di Tian is almost upon me. With his spiritual powers, it won’t be difficult to sense him. At present, so long as we’re not at our peak, Di Tian’s strength would surpass ours.”
“He discovered the last time that I couldn’t kill Wulin. That’s why he’s going to do it. We can only be perfectly fused after we kill him.”
“No, if we kill him, we’ll only go mad. We’ll break apart entirely,” Na’er’s voice suddenly turned cold.
A wry smile appeared at the edge of Gu Yue’s lips. “Ever since we were split into two halves by the shura sword and turned into the Silver Dragon, I’ve never felt as vulnerable as I am now, and I don’t like this feeling.”
“Gu Yue, there’s something that I’ve always wanted to ask you,” Na’er suddenly said.
Na’er paused before saying, “When you were by his side, were you happy?”
Gu Yue fell silent. She stood up and went to squat by the river bank. She scooped up some water with her hand and let the water flow through the gaps between her fingers. “Without happiness, how can there be pain?”
At this moment, time was at a standstill.
Suddenly, Gu Yuena’s body shook slightly, as if she felt something. The disappointment and sorrow on her face vanished. In its place was a smile of understanding.
In the next moment, her body sunk into a warm embrace.
“Gu Yue, why are you here? I’ve been looking for you for half a day,” the gentle voice warmed her heart.
Regardless of how much pain the future held, she was happy at this moment. She truly loved the warm embrace.
“Father!” she called out softly.
Tang Wulin hugged her. “I left the barracks earlier and arrived here sooner. Did you miss me?”
“Yeah!” She turned around and threw herself into his embrace. She felt the warmth of his chest and listened to his vigorously beating heart. She closed her eyes. “I miss you so!”
He caressed her long silver hair softly. At this moment, Tang Wulin’s heart was contented. The happiness he currently felt surpassed the happiness he felt when he broke through the tenth seal or even when he condensed his soul core.
It was precisely because of her that the road blocked by obstacles and filled with hardship seemed free and unobstructed to him. At least, there was something that his heart could still harbor.
The two of them hugged like it was nobody’s business. The middle-aged women who were washing their laundry on the opposite side were stunned when they saw this lovely couple who seemed to be covered in a shroud of golden light under the sun’s rays. It was like a perfect painting.
The two days they spent together were short but filled with joyful moments.
They cooked, washed laundry, went for walks, laughed joyfully, watched the stars, and climbed to the top of a hill to look at the faraway snowy mountains.
Every second seemed to fill their hearts with joy.
“Father, when will you be coming back the next time?” asked Gu Yuena with a soft voice.
Tang Wulin said, “It may take a while longer this time. I’m taking part in a competition. After the competition ends, I can come back. I’ll then be able to stay for a few more days, so I can spend more time with you. Are you bored being here by yourself?”
Gu Yuena smiled. “I’ll not be bored once I think of you, father.”
When he saw her sweet smile on her bright face, Tang Wulin was unable to restrain himself as he planted a soft kiss on her cheek.
Her supple skin was graced with a maiden’s fragrance which made him linger on without any thought of returning to the army camp. He had initially intended it to be a light peck, but he could not stop himself from indulging in the kiss.
Gu Yuena laughed softly. “Father, that tickles.”
Tang Wulin suddenly hugged her tightly. “Don’t ever leave me, okay?”
The smile on Gu Yuena’s face froze. Gradually, her expression softened. She paused for a while before continuing softly, “Na’er will never leave you.”
When Tang Wulin returned to the Blood God Army, he was filled with motivation.
He had gradually gotten used to the life here which was filled with fast-paced cultivation and actual combat. Whenever he went to meet Gu Yuena, he felt especially relaxed. His tensed mind was relieved. He even felt that his senses toward the elements were keener, and his spiritual power had surprisingly improved.
He must have accomplished this during his previous breakthrough. It was just that he did not understand the recent developments. After spending two days with Gu Yuena, everything became clear.
