Jiang Wuyue was stunned for a moment. He frowned. “It seems rather difficult. The rest of the opponents are not that easily dealt with.”
Jiang Qiyue said, “That’s why I said it’s good enough for him to be a semifinalist in both battles. It’s fine even if he were to lose the remaining fights. Anyhow, he’s already famous now. At least, those recalcitrant opinions about him becoming a Blood God at such a young age in the army have mostly subsided. I think Tang Wulin will be in trouble with the Senior Blood Nine this time. I wonder if the Blood God Battalion is willing to increase the quota of the Blood Gods as a result of Tang Wulin’s outstanding performance.”
Jiang Wuyue spoke, “I’m quite confident of Wulin for he’s non-human! Do you know even if he were to allow me to beat him up, I’ll be the one who’ll be exhausted to death in the end? Thus, he may yet be successful at winning the championship especially in the soul master battle.”
Jiang Qiyue spoke in turn, “Soul master battle? His next opponent in the soul master battle is the top powerhouse who has realized his Sabersoul since earlier. The opponent is renowned on the entire continent. He is also the ace in the hole for the Southern Army Corps. If not for his bad temper and poor social relationships, he’s supposed to be a three-word battle armor master already.”
Jiang Wuyue shifted his gaze. “He is the Gale Saber Demon, Sima Jinchi! It’ll be a difficult fight against him, for sure. Wulin’s in trouble. However, he may not necessarily lose. After all, Wulin has his spear’s consciousness too.”
Jiang Qiyue pouted. “Consciousness and soul, is it the same?”
Jiang Wuyue scoffed. “Why don’t we place a bet?”
Jiang Qiyue smiled and asked, “What are we betting with?”
Jiang Wuyue answered, “I thought you’ve always wanted a black spirit shield as your mecha’s equipment? If I lose, I’ll buy you one with my merit points. If I win, then you’ll help me ask Yuxue out, at least, for a meal with me. How’s that? The bet is whether Wulin can defeat the Gale Demon Saber, Sima Jinchi.”
Jiang Qiyue’s eyes glowed. “Sure, I’m in.”
At present, Long Yuxue was sitting in her room. She looked at the soul screen on the wall as she quietly awaited this year’s Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge semifinals. She was utterly unaware that she had already been betrayed by her best friend.
There was still half an hour before the semifinals began. Could he win?
Long Yuxue was feeling slightly anxious. Her emotions toward Tang Wulin was complicated. She was caught in a daze for a long time upon her return the other day. She was well aware that she hardly stood a chance now, yet she still could not refrain herself from caring about him. Everything else aside, at least she could ease the pain temporarily when she paid attention to his development.
Since her younger days, she had always admired powerhouses. She had always imagined that her future lover would be a matchless powerhouse. It was not so long ago when she had a favorable impression of Jiang Wuyue too. Jiang Wuyue was already an outstanding man amongst the younger generation of soldiers. He treated her well too. So, how could she be unaware of his intention?
Despite being outstanding in her heart, Jiang Wuyue was still not the absolute best. Somehow, he was still lacking something, and she could not quite put her finger on it.
It was not until Tang Wulin’s appearance.
She clearly remembered every time his lips cracked into a smile. When she finally recognized her feelings, she suddenly realized that she had been so immature in the past.
Love could not be measured by one’s ability at any moment. It was a feeling and the flurry of sparks in one’s heart in that split second. Even without Tang Wulin’s outburst afterward, without him becoming powerful later on, she had loved him in her heart all along.
True love happened when one did not care nor concern oneself over anything else.
There should perhaps be a few relationships like this in a person’s life. However, one would only need to experience it once to realize one’s chosen love.
She did not resent Tang Wulin. After all, Tang Wulin had never hurt her since the beginning, and he had not flirted with her even once. In fact, she felt grateful for Tang Wulin’s appearance which gave her the opportunity to truly feel how it was to be in love.
‘Wulin, you must try your best! No matter how powerful the opponent is, you can certainly defeat him, right?’
In the living quarters, rest area, bar, and cafe.
All the locations in the entire Blood God Army were equipped with soul screens which were live streaming the Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge semifinals.
Just about everyone was anticipating the following round of the competition.
The Golden Dragon King versus The Gale Saber Demon!
The first round of semifinals was here!
Blood One was sitting in the middle of the Blood God Battalion while the rest of the Blood Gods were sitting by his side including the former Blood Nine. Even a few deputy commanders of the Blood God Battalion joined in to watch the competition together with the regimental commander, Bright Mirror Douluo Zhang Huanyun.
It was not an overstatement to say that there were more than fifteen Title Douluo-ranked powerhouses and two four-word battle armor masters congregated in the Blood God Battalion’s hall at this moment.
There were fewer than four people on the entire continent capable of achieving such influence and power.
Zhang Huanyun was seated by Blood One’s side. “Old Cao, do you think that the boy will win? I thought the mission you assigned him is to become the champion? Is there any punishment if he loses?”
Blood One spoke indifferently, “Mission? It was meant to be a joke. How would I know who’s going to participate in this year’s competition?”
“Huh?” Zhang Huanyun’s lips twitched once. “It’s a little wilful, isn’t it?”
The Heartless Douluo Cao Dezhi spoke indifferently, “If I’m not wilful, how can I become Blood One in your Blood God Army where even birds don’t take a shit?”
The group of people gathered there could not help refraining themselves from laughing upon hearing the conversation between the two powerhouses. The Heartless Douluo was right for how could one ever find a bird in the snow mountains!
“Cao Dezhi!” said Zheng Huanyun through his tightly clenched teeth. However, he cracked into a smile soon. “How about us figuring out a way to solve this matter? Look, your Blood God Battalion has already reached its quota since earlier. His addition is pointless and in excess. On the other hand, my side is lacking a successor who’s truly capable of running the entire army! I’ll give him some proper training, so he can at least run the Blood God Army for centuries into the future, if he’s with me. In addition to his ability to weaken the abyssal plane, perhaps, we can then completely eliminate our powerful enemies within a hundred years.”
The Heartless Douluo dug his ears. “What were you saying again? I didn’t hear clearly.”
“Just you wait!” said Zhang Huanyun fiercely.
Blood Two could not help speaking, “Old Zhang, stop talking nonsense. You lack a successor on your side. Don’t we have the same problem here as well? Moreover, the boy, Wulin is not destined to remain in the Blood God Battalion for eternity.”
Zhang Huanyun frowned. Of course, he had already found out about Tang Wulin’s origin since earlier.
“That’s not for certain either,” said the Heartless Douluo, much to everyone’s surprise.
“Oh? You can keep him here? He’s chosen and sent by your Tang Sect. If you’re capable of keeping him here, then it’s fine for him to stay in the Blood God Battalion!” Zhang Huanyun’s eyes were shimmering with radiance. The Blood God Battalion was a part of the Blood God Army too. As long as Tang Wulin was willing to remain here, he would certainly be able to render his services to the army in the future.
Cao Dezhi spoke, “Let’s wait and see then. We’ll have to see how his development is by then. Huanyun, what do you plan to do if, one day, we’ve truly settled the issue on the abyssal plane?”
Zhang Huanyun was stunned for moment. He had never pondered this issue before because he had never thought that he could solve the problem with the abyssal plane in his lifetime.
“I’ve never thought about this. If such an auspicious event truly took place, then I’ll do some traveling before I indulge myself in some of those trivial pursuits, I guess.”
Although he did not have a Limit Douluo’s cultivation base, he was only lacking in a final step. One of the reasons why he valued Tang Wulin so much was because of the Life Tide recently. It had finally opened up this door for him whereby he could stand firmly to take the final step.
