Tang Wulin hiked up the mound with great strides. All the various probes in the army did not react to his presence due to his Blood God Bracelet. He gazed into the distance from the high altitude. He truly wished to raise his head and howl into the sky if not for the concern that he might cause an avalanche.
Everything was smooth-going recently. His cultivation base was elevating while his relationship with Gu Yuena was getting amicable as well. He would certainly tell her that he was not her father, but her lover later, when the time was right.
Tang Wulin felt his chest heating up as he recalled her scent in his mind.
He had already begun to enjoy his life in the Blood God Army. The army was in harmony with the rest of the world. It was isolated from the outside, so it was always quiet here. At least, the pressure that had burdened him did not appear for the time being. There was not much movement from the abyss ever since the previous abyssal tide ended.
He turned around and looked in the direction of the abyssal passage when he thought about the abyss. A faint black-grey color appeared indistinctly over there. The abyssal creatures were truly terrifying creatures!
He wished to explore the place once again to kill the abyssal creatures. It would be rather beneficial in elevating his cultivation base, especially now that his Dragon Core had evolved following the breakthrough of the tenth layer seal. His cultivation base had also improved tremendously such that Tang Wulin was very confident of himself.
As the Blood God Battalion’s Blood Nine, he did not have any restrictions, so he could enter the abyssal passage to inspect and investigate at any time.
‘Yes! It’s been too long since I last entered the abyssal passage. I think that it’s been a while since anything stirred up there. Why don’t I go take a look?’
At this point, Tang Wulin felt his chest tighten slightly. He raised his right hand and sent a message to Blood One with his Blood God Bracelet. He informed Blood One that he was going to inspect the abyssal passage. He would inspect the periphery for a while and not go too deep before he returned.
He received Blood One’s reply real soon. Blood One allowed him to go inspect but ordered him not to go too deep. He must return immediately upon discovering any powerful abyssal creature.
Tang Wulin’s Golden Dragon Spear was a sensitive issue. It had been noticed by the abyssal plane. The abyssal tide had ended for now, since the few powerful abyssal emperors had been completely suppressed due to their previous attempts in using their abilities at full force. Although they could not do anything in the meantime, Tang Wulin would still need to act carefully.
Tang Wulin floated and opened the wings on his back as he glided his way to the abyssal passage. He hardly used his Golden Dragon Wings during the competition in order to conceal his ability.
On the other hand, there was no quicker and more dependable method to travel in the snow mountains than flying. Due to his powerful strength, the mountain winds did not affect him much.
In the distance, the abyssal passage’s entrance was already in sight. Tang Wulin retracted his wings and landed near the entrance.
The gloomy aura which was characteristic of the abyssal plane blew against his face. The Blood God Army’s soldiers who were on guard duty would only be stationed here for a period of time because the army was worried that their health would be affected by the abyssal aura.
After warding off countless attacks in a period of a few thousand years, the Blood God Army had comprehensive data of the situation in the abyssal plane at present.
Tang Wulin’s Blood God Bracelet was his best permit. He chose a slightly larger passage and walked into it. The inside was strictly guarded, so he relied on Blood Nine’s identity to allow him to advance without any hindrance.
His previous visit was with Long Yuxue. They encountered the abyssal tide on the first visit. He could not help heaving a sigh in his heart when he thought of Long Yuxue. He wondered if they could still be friends after today’s incident.
Tang Wulin had to act prudently upon entering the passage. He immediately unleashed his Dragon Moon battle armor and held the Golden Dragon Spear in his hand.
His two-word battle armor was equipped with wings initially. Ever since its wings merged with his Golden Dragon Wings, Tang Wulin had gained better control of his flying while his dragon wings’ power was also greatly enhanced.
Recently, he was feeling confident of himself as his cultivation base had elevated rapidly. He pointed the Golden Dragon Spear forward as he walked inside with slow but steady steps.
The passage was spacious and dry. One would not be able to sense the gloom coming from the place if one was unaware that it was the bridge to the abyssal plane.
Perhaps, it was because the abyssal tide had just ended recently. Tang Wulin did not encounter even one abyssal creature despite having walked inside for about twenty minutes.
It seemed like the abyssal plane had gone quiet now. It would possibly take another few decades before the next abyssal tide.
It was better that way, at least the Blood God Army would not be subjected to any major attacks at the moment.
It was not until Tang Wulin sensed that he was close to the deepest location when he realized he had been there before with Long Yuxue back at the beginning. However, he still did not encounter any attack from the abyssal creatures. It was as if the abyssal creatures had never appeared in this place before.
‘It can’t be right. No encounter? Isn’t this a wasted trip for me then?’
Tang Wulin was slightly hesitant as he stopped walking. Should he continue to walk deeper? Blood One did not mention how deep he should go before it would be considered too deep. Blood One had only reminded him to retreat as soon as he encountered any powerful abyssal creature.
It was apparent that Blood One was much more familiar with the abyssal plane compared to Tang Wulin. The silence after the abyssal tide was noticeable which was why he was not overly worried about Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin decided that he would like to encounter an abyssal creature anyhow since he was here, so he walked further in to take a look.
He held the midshaft of his Golden Dragon Spear tightly as he raised his spirits and continued to venture deeper.
The temperature in the abyssal passage began to rise as he continued advancing. There were lights and shadows shimmering indistinctly within the passage which made the place feel grotesque and eerie.
Due to his spiritual power which had begun to push forward steadily to the Spirit Domain, Tang Wulin could obviously sense the number of spatial-attribute, elemental molecules in the air increasing at high speeds.
‘I suppose this is how it feels in the passage. As expected, the passage that stretches across planes is truly mystical.’
‘I wonder how the abyssal plane is able to connect to another plane and attempt to invade the other plane.’
‘If the abyssal plane was capable of doing this, could Douluo Continent do this as well?’ The resources on Douluo Continent were fast depleting. All sorts of minerals and rare metals were being mined continuously at a blazing rate.
It was also one of the reasons that contributed to the radicals’ many attempts to resort to arms on Star Luo Continent and Douluo Continent. Their purpose was simple. They wanted to plunder the resources.
When the day comes whereby all the resources in the entire Douluo world were gone, what would happen then?
Tang Wulin learned from his teacher back when he was at Shrek Academy that the Federation was exploring outer space then. According to scientific studies, there were countless planets in outer space. Hence, there would certainly be a few planets which were suitable for mankind. In addition, there were natural resources on these planets. However, the research had just begun. So, it would take time before they could colonize these planets for mankind’s survival.
It would be much easier with the presence of a planar passage.
Tang Wulin sensed the spatial element in his surroundings growing dense as his curiosity of the abyssal plane grew stronger. He quickened his pace naturally.
The temperature from the surrounding passage was increasing. There was not much change to the size of the passage but the spatial fluctuation was beginning to grow more intense.
Moreover, Tang Wulin could feel the passage pulsating rhythmically in a gentle manner as if it was a throbbing blood vessel. The sensation felt even more peculiar now.
He plugged the Golden Dragon Spear into the ground so he could quietly feel it.
Not a trickle of energy radiated from the spear. It signified that the passage itself was not endowed with any life-force aura of its own.
Could such a passage be damaged?
A query arose in Tang Wulin’s heart. If the abyssal passage could be damaged, there was no need for them to worry about the abyssal plane anymore. He would ask Blood One about this when he returned.
Tang Wulin had a better understanding of the abyssal passage while he was there. Although he had yet to encounter any abyssal creature, he felt the journey had not been in vain. At the very least, it gave him a better understanding of the spatial element at a deeper level.
The spatial element in the abyssal passage was arranged in a peculiar manner. It involved the origin of the world, so it was also an effective training ground for his spiritual power.
He continued to advance and noticed that the spatial element in the passage seemed to be in a stable condition. The passage appeared endless. He continued walking forward but did not seem to reach the end. He walked for another two hours before he finally stopped walking.
In an unknown world, he felt it was not safe to continue advancing. Something might just happen.
‘There’s no abyssal creature at all!’ He felt a slight regret in his heart. Without the abyssal creature, there was no way he could engage in actual combat and devour the enemy’s energy. However, he had since lost the impulsiveness of his youth. Safety first, for Gu Yuena was still waiting for him.
‘Let’s call it a day.’
