Chapter 1069: Never Coming Back

Yes, he had had a breakthrough. During the battle, after enduring Tang Wulin’s final attack, he had taken a step which he had not been able to for the past ten years. At that moment, he had reached the rank of a Title Douluo. He felt his own sublimation and a substantial improvement in himself.
Sadly, the great achievement was only inside the Star Dou Battle Network, and after he left it, everything vanished. His soul power had returned to its initial rank. However, after experiencing the sensation of being a Title Douluo for only a brief moment, one could imagine his newfound passion.
Yue Zhengen did not give him a direct answer. Instead, he posed another question, “So, will you be coming back?”
Sima Jinchi was slightly stunned. He scratched his head. “I’m afraid that I won’t. According to the strange feeling I had when my Sabersoul awakened, it seems that I have no choice, but to remain with this man after I find him.”
Yue Zhengen did not disguise the disappointment in his eyes. Although Sima Jinchi was wild and intractable, his strength in combat was extremely powerful. In the army, he was always a beacon of morale. If such an incredible warrior left his army just like that, he could not help but feel a little heartache.
However, this only lasted for a very short while. Yue Zhengen nodded and said, “Zhengyu will be meeting up with you guys in the future. Do look after him for me.”
“Don’t worry, sir.” Sima Jinchi thumped his firm chest.
A faint smile appeared at the edge of Yue Zhengen’s lips. “Then go. He’s in the Blood God Army.”
“Blood God Army? Where’s that?” Sima Jinchi honestly had no knowledge of this federal secret.
Yue Zhengyu told him the Blood God Army’s location in a simple way.
“I never knew that there’s such an amazing place. It’d be great if I can fight with the abyssal creatures. I’m sure I’ll have the time of my life there. I’ll be off then. Goodbye, general!”
As he said this, he gave Yue Zhengen another military salute.
Yue Zhengen nodded and said, “There are many experts in the Blood God Army, especially their commander, the Bright Mirror Douluo, Zhang Huanyun. His strength is extraordinary. After you’ve achieved a breakthrough in your cultivation base, it wouldn’t hurt to go and spar with him. It’d most certainly be of great help to your elevation.”
“Oh? That’s great! The Bright Mirror Douluo, Zhang Huanyun. I’ll remember that. Thank you, general.”
Yue Zhengen watched as Sima Jinchi left in great strides. Feeling somewhat abandoned, the corners of his lips twitched slightly. “Zhang Huanyun, man, the place will be quite lively after this. Haha!”
When he woke up from his meditation, it was already early morning the next day. Tang Wulin heaved a sigh. He clearly felt he had improved even more.
‘A Sabersoul, huh?’
‘If he didn’t have a Sabersoul, he wouldn’t be a match for me. But with it, that Gale Saber Demon Sima Jinchi really suppressed my abilities.’
In any case, what was with his Dragon Slaying Saber? Even if that Dragon Slaying Saber was of exceptional quality, how did it manage to nullify his Golden Dragon Spear’s powers after head-on collisions? It seemed to have even devoured some of his Golden Dragon Spear’s energy.
Recalling his fight and thinking it through, Tang Wulin could almost be certain that Sima Jinchi had been assisted by his Golden Dragon Spear’s power when he achieved a breakthrough during the battle.
What was the relationship between the Dragon Slaying Saber and the Golden Dragon Spear? This was his first time experiencing such a peculiar match.
Without a doubt, the two were very closely related. However, this closeness was something Tang Wulin had never felt before. Clearly, his Golden Dragon Spear was a divine tool that had been hidden in his bloodline all this while. There was no need to question its effects.
Tang Wulin had personally confirmed the might of the Dragon Slaying Saber. It seemed to be able to call upon the powers of the evil dragons it slew in the past, perhaps the distant past, or maybe in some mystic lands, and then it could erupt with extremely terrifying force.
His Golden Dragon Spear would not be suppressed by his Dragon Slaying Saber. On the contrary, after the two weapons collided, the impact did not harm him or the Gale Saber Demon Sima Jinchi. The feeling was something like two acquaintances sparring with each other. However, from the damage the impact’s shockwave had done to their battle armors, the terrifying power they released was evident.
Even Star Dou Battle Network could not handle it.
Were they companions? If the Dragon Slaying Saber was also a divine tool which had been turned into a martial soul for Sima Jinchi to use, then would that not make it the same as his Golden Dragon Spear?
Unfortunately, he could not leave the Blood God Army. If that was not the case, he would have liked to find the Gale Saber Demon Sima Jinchi and ask him a few questions of his own. At the same time, he would also like to experience just how powerful this Dragon Slaying Saber’s aura really was in person.
How could he have known that the Gale Saber Demon Sima Jinchi was already on his way, heading straight for the Blood God Army? Yue Zhengyu was in secluded meditation while Xu Xiaoyan was off somewhere searching for her own path. Nobody could have notified him of this.
He had three more matches after this. From his battle with the Gale Saber Demon Sima Jinchi, he could see that the upcoming matches would be extremely difficult. This was especially true for the mecha battle which was about to start!
He had to fight with all he had. He had already made it this far in the competition. He could not afford to lose, no matter what.
What Tang Wulin did not know was that due to his victory over the Gale Saber Demon Sima Jinchi, the entire Blood God Army was in a celebratory mood. Nobody questioned his being a major general at such a young age anymore. There was only a single thought in everyone’s minds and it was that they had the most powerful expert below the rank of a Title Douluo. If Tang Wulin could obtain victory in the finals, he would be representing the Blood God Army as he climbed to the pinnacle of strength.
Unfortunately, although they had been waiting in the resting area and the area surrounding the Blood God Army hoping to get a look at this major general who was at least the runner-up in the Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge while representing the Blood God Army, they were unable to catch a glimpse of this person.
The semifinals of the mecha battles had started under such circumstances!
Tang Wulin picked his mecha. Entering the competition grounds with purposeful steps, spear in hand, he was shocked to notice that the volume of the cheering was clearly softer compared to the solo competitions, even though this was also the semifinals. The stadium only sounded slightly noisy. There was no sense of warmth or passion.
He had been immersing himself in the battle with the Gale Saber Demon. Naturally, he did not know that the entire Star Dou Battle Network almost broke down after their battle.
The venue of the semifinal matches was destroyed, and the spectators were also affected. There were many who died or were injured. Although nobody could actually die within the Star Dou Battle Network, the pain that they had to endure would be similar. It was akin to their experience in the spirit ascension platform.
Hence, the Star Dou Battle Network had experienced the greatest threat to its existence ever since it came into being. A plethora of complaints filled the entire Battle Network. This had also darkened the year’s competition a bit.
The federal government was quick to act. They came out with a statement immediately. They also explained that the battle between the Golden Dragon King and the Gale Saber Demon had indeed exceeded the attacking power of ordinary three-word battle armor masters. That was how such an incident came to happen. They refunded the ticket fares for every spectator and even gave them a fair bit of compensation. At the same time, they also announced that they would further strengthen the periphery of the competition stage for the mecha battles’ semifinals and finals, and the soul masters’ battles’ finals.
After a whole day, they somehow managed to settle this affair. However, that battle had still had a traumatic effect on some of the spectators. Hence, in today’s mecha battles’ semifinals, although the spectators were very interested in observing the match, their hearts were also hammering. ‘Would what happened in the soul masters’ battle happen again?’ After all, nobody would like to suddenly experience the sensation of dying.
Hence, the level of passion the spectators had, naturally, dampened greatly.
However, when Tang Wulin and his opponent stepped into the arena, the spectators’ emotions were still gradually aroused. After all, this was a collision between two experts. This match would decide who would be able to make it into the finals.
As he looked at his opponent in the distance, Tang Wulin recalled this contestant’s information.
Without a doubt, ever since he made it into the top eight, the odds of every opponent would be better than his. This was also the case for his current one.
Tang Wulin’s opponent in the semifinals was regarded as the oddest contestant in the year’s mecha battle tournament. It was not because he operated his mecha in an unusual manner. It was because this contestant’s combat strength did not originate from his mecha, but his martial soul. His moniker was the Bubble King.
He was the only contestant to not equip his mecha with any weapons. Instead, he picked another set of thrusters and fixed it onto his mecha to increase his mecha’s strength.
There were also mecha masters who did this in real life. Only the mecha masters who were extremely confident in their own martial soul would do that. It was quite astonishing for such a mecha to be able to enter the semifinals. The might of his martial soul could only be imagined.
