Chapter 1061: The Person in His Heart
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
What sort of powerhouses would Tang Wulin encounter in the next two rounds of the competition? He did not have the upper hand in his mecha operating skills actually, but his trump card was his three great spirit souls.
Generally, a soul master who possessed a spirit soul of Tang Wulin’s rank was already an elite soul master. However, he relied on the Golden Dragon King Bloodline’s cultivation and a certain amount of luck to own three directly. The three great spirit souls had a huge amplification effect on him as a soul master. The effect was even more obvious when used on a mecha. Tang Wulin’s Overlord Dragon had yet to reveal itself while the Damask Tulip’s Devours the World was capable of amplifying his soul power on an exceedingly large scale within a short period of time.
Tang Wulin was not only anticipating the day he would be the overall champion. He was also looking forward to meeting even more powerful opponents at the same time. He could elevate himself even more by fighting against true powerhouses.
He exited the Star Dou Cabin and returned to his room to continue cultivating. For reasons unknown, he was not in the mood to return to the cafe ever since the day he drew Gu Yue’s portrait.
He had all sorts of uncertainties brewing in his mind regarding Gu Yue, Na’er and Gu Yuena. Although he devoted great effort to suppress those thoughts, he could not stop the recurring thoughts from appearing in his mind.
Gu Yuena was still suffering from amnesia, so there was utterly no way he could ask her. Yet, the impulse in his heart was growing relentless ever since he drew Gu Yue’s portrait under Long Yuxue’s request.
What was going on? Gu Yue was a mystery to him since the day she appeared. He had always told himself to not probe into her secrets. Yet, how could he possibly stop himself from probing as their relationship progressed?
He could not help feeling tightness in his chest. His room, which had a window, was actually located inside a mountain right next to the edge of a cliff. Precipices could be seen outside his window. In fact, he had a magnificent view of the snowy mountains.
He walked to his bedside and opened the window to allow the cold wind into his room. The cold wind blew against his body and chilled his heart. The refreshing cold air calmed him and made him feel at ease, both physically and mentally.
‘Gu Yue, I can’t be that selfish anymore. You’re still you. I’ll do all I can to help you regain your memories after the competition ends. Even if you leave me in the end, I hope that you can be yourself. I wish you can tell me what’s going on with you.’
He had experienced too many upheavals and events since his childhood. His psyche was much better than the ordinary folks. Yet, the burden he was carrying was way too heavy for him.
He could only be in a relaxed mood when he was with his comrades and Gu Yue. He missed the days he spent in the academy back at the beginning. However, each time he thought about the academy,
he felt the pain as if his heart was being torn apart.
He exhaled and with it blew out the misery in his heart. He would advance a step at a time. Gu Yue once said that the problem she faced was not something he could solve. She loved him, yet it left her with no choice but to leave him. In the final analysis, there could only be one outcome which was the problem was insurmountable.
Was it the Spirit Pagoda? Yes! He was so insignificant as compared to the Spirit Pagoda. Anyhow, he would still need to face it. So what if it was the Spirit Pagoda?
The Tang Sect and Shrek Academy were bombed while the Spirit Pagoda’s headquarters situated nearby was left alone. Why was that? Tang Wulin had felt suspicious toward the Spirit Pagoda since earlier. However, if he wished to rebuild Shrek Academy in the future, there was no way he could avoid a confrontation with the Spirit Pagoda for sure. A powerful Shrek Academy was definitely not fancied by an organization like the Spirit Pagoda. What about the Federation? Was the Federation willing to offer support in rebuilding Shrek Academy?
He would need to face all of it himself. At the same time, he would require good abilities and forces to be able to confront it.
He would habitually remind himself each time he faced some hardship. It seemed a difficult situation appeared only because he was not powerful yet!
He clenched his fists subconsciously. His ability was elevated time and again. He had made massive leaps repeatedly such that he was gradually advancing toward the peak of the soul masters’ world. He had become more powerful by the day as he was the hope and future of Shrek Academy, the Tang Sect, and even himself! He would advance with great effort!
The atmosphere in the Blood God Army recently was intriguing. There was an air of excitement at the place when compared to the usual days.
Jiang Wuyue had mentioned that the Golden Dragon King was his bosom buddy and also the newly appointed Blood Nine in the Blood God Battalion. The news spread quickly over the entire army and became a hot topic of conversation.
Such a young major general was unprecedented in the Blood God Army.
The Golden Dragon King had fought his way to be one of the semifinalists in the Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge! It signified that he was the most powerful soul master in the army among those with a cultivation base below a three-word battle armor master.
There were throngs of people gathering in the cafe because many people heard that Tang Wulin loved to drink black coffee. Recently, the sales of black coffee in the cafe increased ten-fold. Perhaps, the rest of the fighters assumed that drinking black coffee could possibly help their cultivation subconsciously.
Whatever may be the case, black coffee was definitely effective at stimulating a person. It may be a fabrication of the mind, but some people had achieved a certain level of breakthrough in their cultivation after drinking black coffee.
Tang Wulin had not appeared in the cafe for the past few days. Many officers who wished to catch a glimpse of the younger generation in the army were there in vain. Nevertheless, news about Tang Wulin, including the video recordings of his participation in the competition, had begun to spread widely in the army.
The Blood God Battalion disseminated the information regarding the Life Tide incident which had appeared in the barracks earlier. Everyone received benefits from the life baptism brought by Tang Wulin after he had achieved a breakthrough. Later, the Blood God Battalion carried out a detailed study of the incident.
Everyone in the army, whether it was the Blood God Army’s regimental commander or the other high ranking officers, had acquiesced to the dissemination of this information. Although Tang Wulin rarely appeared in public, his reputation in the Blood God Army was in full swing.
When Jiang Wuyue was eliminated in the previous round of the mecha battle, he inadvertently mentioned that Tang Wulin was the Spear King who had entered the semifinals. Tang Wulin became more renowned following that.
He might be the sole person entering the semifinals of both the soul master battle and the mecha battle. After all, the other seven semifinalists were obviously different from him. The people found it believable after having witnessed him in action in both types of battles.
Jiang Wuyue downed a cup of hard liquor and complained to his sister beside him. “Qiyue, how long has it been since Tang Wulin entered the army? At most, not even half a year, right? How did he advance so soon?”
Jiang Qiyue giggled. “Why brother, are you jealous of him?”
Jiang Wuyue spoke without the slightest intention of concealing his feelings, “More than jealous, I’m filled with admiration, envy, and hatred! Yuxue likes him and his ability is improving really fast, isn’t he? I felt he was below me initially. Yet, it has only been a while and I’m already falling far behind him. We’re all human. So, why is there so much disparity between us?”
Jiang Qiyue shrugged. “How would I know? Speaking of which, I’m interested in him as well. You have a good relationship with him, right? Why don’t you introduce your sister to him?”
Jiang Wuyue rolled his eyes. “He has a girlfriend and he has already rejected Yuxue. Why would you go for him still?”
“Hey, are you my biological brother? So, I’m much worse than Yuxue in your eyes?” Jiang Qiyue had her hands on her hips with a furious expression on her face.
Jiang Wuyue hastily said with a flattering smile, “Of course not. You and Yuxue each have your own beauty. I thought beauty is in the eye of the beholder, isn’t it?”
Jiang Qiyue pouted her lips. “Don’t give me that. I’m too lazy to retort your inarticulate speech. Served you right that you didn’t get Yuxue to be your girlfriend.”
Jiang Wuyue spoke helplessly, “I don’t know what’s going on either. I’m tongue-tied when I’m with her. Even I wish to give myself a slap.”
Jiang Qiyue spoke eagerly, “I can help you out if you really wish to give yourself a slap.”
Jiang Wuyue spoke with an unpleasant tone, “Go away. Speaking of which, how far do you think Tang Wulin will go in the following competition?”
Jiang Qiyue shrugged and said, “Is it important? Isn’t it enough that he can enter the semifinals of both the soul master battle and the mecha battle? It’s proof that he’s number one in his combined abilities. As for the competition, it’s not that important, is it?”
Jiang Wuyue said, “How’s that the same? Winning another round puts him in the top two, so he’s at least a first runner-up. He’ll be the champion if he’s able to win two rounds of the competition. It’s difficult to unanimously acknowledge the champion due to differences in public opinion. Also, no one’s going to remember the defeated ones. Only the champion will be truly remembered by the people!”
Jiang Qiyue heaved a sigh and said, “Consider his following opponents. Do you think he’s still capable of advancing?”
