Blood Nine spoke in an unpleasant tone, “Why should I be afraid? When the time comes, I won’t show mercy anymore. We’ll fight in the battle network as before, so I won’t have to avoid beating you.”
The former Blood Nine’s willpower to fight had to be strong in order to become a member of the Blood God Battalion. He did not become dejected when he realized that Tang Wulin’s ability had improved. On the contrary, it inspired his fighting spirit.
“Sure,” Tang Wulin agreed with a nod.
He left the Blood God Battalion in a rush and arrived at the rest area.
In the distance, Tang Wulin saw Long Yuxue. She was sitting in a corner of the cafe with a mug of steaming hot coffee in her hands. He was surprised to find that Long Yuxue was not dressed in military uniform today.
Instead, she was dressed in a high neck woolen sweater. Her long hair was tied into a ponytail which made her appear fresh and at ease. From the side, one could see her beauty with her long lashes quivering gently in the wind.
She was less valiant as compared to her usual self but appeared more feminine now.
Tang Wulin advanced in quick strides and appeared before her. He took a seat.
Although Long Yuxue had put on light makeup only, her features still looked enhanced on her face.
“Hmm, I’m here. What’s going on?” asked Tang Wulin.
“What are you drinking?” Long Yuxue answered with an irrelevant answer while the gaze in her eyes appeared as if she was dodging him.
Tang Wulin ordered a cup of black coffee from the waiter. He had never enjoyed milk ever since he was young. Neither did he add anything else to his coffee.
Soon, a cup of rich and fragrant coffee was served.
Tang Wulin looked at Long Yuxue who appeared to be in a pensive mood today, but he did not probe further. He took a sip of his coffee and smelled the strong aroma, which was tinged with a little bitterness, wafting over his entire body. It relaxed his spirit.
“Wulin, Jiang Wuyue said that you already have a girlfriend. Is that true?” asked Long Yuxue as she suddenly raised her head and looked straight into Tang Wulin’s eyes.
Tang Wulin was stunned for a moment before he cracked a smile and spoke, “Look, I’m quite handsome. Isn’t it normal for me to have a girlfriend? What’s up?”
‘Yes! Isn’t it quite normal for him to have a girlfriend when he is so outstanding?’ Long Yuxue was aware that almost every female soldier in the army who had met Tang Wulin had a favorable impression of him. She recounted a good number of female soldiers who were at the proper age for him too. It was only that he kept a low profile and seldom frequent the rest area. Hence, they did not have the opportunity to get close to him.
“Do you love her very much? What’s she like?” asked Long Yuxue.
Tang Wulin nodded gently. “Yes! I love her very much. Hmm, how’s she like? Frankly, I can’t tell. When I first got to know her, she would always take the initiative to get close to me which I didn’t understand at the time. Gradually, we became close friends. We were schoolmates, and we spent every day cultivating together. We met each other every single day. As time passed, our relationship began to develop.”
“One day, for some unknown reason, she suddenly began to drift apart from me. I didn’t understand why. Yet, she would always appear during important moments. She would even sacrifice herself to protect me.”
“We were still young at the time, so I didn’t understand the relationship we had. However, I knew that I couldn’t be without her in my life anymore. She had become a very important part of me that could no longer be removed.”
“We had experienced many countless hardships together. We were separated once, and I couldn’t find her. Yet, at the moment when I was facing death, she returned to my side and sacrificed her life to protect me. She’s a complex person who’s difficult to comprehend. Thus, I don’t know what she’s like. Nevertheless, I know one thing. She loves me and I love her too, which is enough. I’ll always love her no matter who she is.”
‘I’ll always love her no matter who she is.’
These simple words uttered by Tang Wulin were full of such deep affection that they made heaven and earth quiver.
There was still a gleam of hope in Long Yuxue’s heart initially. Yet at this exact moment, her charming face turned pale, so ghastly pale it looked horrifying.
Tang Wulin acted as if he did not notice it. He casually took a sip of his coffee. “I love every bit of her. I only hope to work hard so as to be more powerful such that I can better protect her in the future, instead of letting her protect me. Yuxue, are you listening to me?”
“Oh! Hmm.” Long Yuxue nodded with difficulty.
Tang Wulin asked once again, “What was it that you wish to talk about?”
Long Yuxue shook her head strenuously and stood up. “Nothing… I suddenly remembered that I’ve something to do at the special services office. I shall head over there first.” Immediately after, she dashed outside which appeared as if she was running away.
Tang Wulin’s gaze did not follow after her departing silhouette, but he lowered his head quietly and sipped the black coffee in his hands.
“Bastard! How could you hurt her like that?” All of a sudden, a huge hand grabbed his collar and pulled him up from the chair.
Tang Wulin’s gaze appeared unusually clear, as he looked at the tall and bulky Jiang Wuyue. Needless to say, Jiang Wuyue was as ferocious as a lion at present.
“It’s precisely because I don’t wish to hurt her anymore in the future that I’m telling her the truth. I can’t influence her into loving someone, but at least, I should tell her where my love lies. Don’t you understand the principle of suffering short-term pain to free oneself from endless agonies? Could it be that you still wish to bring us together?”
Jiang Wuyue was stunned as he loosened his grasp on Tang Wulin’s hand subconsciously. He sat on the chair that Long Yuxue was sitting on earlier. With his hands laced behind his head, he spoke sulkily, “She likes you, I know that. She still likes you even after I told her you already have a girlfriend.”
Tang Wulin heaved a sigh. “That’s why I want her to understand that it’s impossible for us to be together! It’s better to suffer short-term pain to free oneself from endless agonies.”
Jiang Wuyue scratched his head and spoke with a bitter smile, “I’m sorry that I was impulsive earlier. I can’t bear to see her in so much pain. Is there not even a little chance between you and her?”
Tang Wulin raised the coffee cup before himself. “Everyone’s heart is like a cup. Its volume is limited, just as my cup is already filled. It can’t even contain another drop.”
Jiang Wuyue spoke in an unpleasant tone, “Why do you have to speak in such a poetic manner? Can’t you just say ‘no’?”
Tang Wulin rolled his eyes. “Alright. This is your opportunity to express yourself. What are you doing here standing next to me? Yuxue is a nice girl. Go after her.”
Jiang Wuyue hesitated and said, “So I should go after her? Is that okay?”
Tang Wulin was almost speechless as he answered, “Go after her. There’s a slim opportunity, but there’s none if you don’t. Go or not, as you please.”
Jiang Wuyue looked at him with a hesitant expression and spoke, “Why does it feel like you know this so well? Could it be that you have many girlfriends in the past?”
Tang Wulin’s body stiffened for a moment. “I’ve got a girlfriend anyhow. It’s a natural skill, and it’s not related to how many girlfriends I had.”
“Okay, I’m going now!”
Tang Wulin watched as Jiang Wuyue stood up. He then left in great strides and seemed like he was heading to the execution grounds. Tang Wulin could not help laughing bitterly. It would absolutely not be an easy thing for him to go after her with his attitude.
Tang Wulin finished the coffee in his cup as he felt his emotions calm down gradually. Actually, he had a premonition, even before he came here today, of what Long Yuxue was going to discuss with him. He had made the decision that he should not delay it any further. It was better for him to tell Long Yuxue his true feelings.
At present, he felt relaxed with fewer worries on his mind.
He stood up to stretch his muscles. Then, he paid for his coffee before leaving the rest area.
He did not return to his room, but he walked in quick strides to the highest point in the Blood God Army’s barracks.
The bitter, cold wind that blew against his body felt like stabbing knives due to the ultra-low temperature and mountain winds. Any ordinary person would be frozen stiff within a short period of time. For Tang Wulin, he only felt waves of refreshing coldness surging through his body with unspeakable pleasantness on the frozen and snow-covered land.
