At this very moment, the intense explosion sound was near its end. Tang Wulin’s mecha landed on the sidelines of the competition stage with a loud boom.
His Bluesilver Emperor vines appeared slightly charred. It was like the charred skin of a burnt potato.
However, these Bluesilver Emperor vines were slowly retracted. When they retreated back into his mecha, they discarded the layer of black skin like a snake undergoing shedding. Although they appeared much dimmer than before, it was clearly not enough to endanger them.
However, Tang Wulin’s mecha truly looked to be in a sorry state right now. His mecha’s left arm was gone as a result of the explosion. His mecha was damaged in many parts, there were even parts that dangled outside. Unstable flickers of the soul circuit flashed across his mecha. No matter how one looked at it, it seemed as if it would explode at any moment.
Bubble King sat within his mecha’s cockpit with his eyes slightly squinted. ‘It’s not over yet? Can he still take more of my attacks? Well then, just how many more bubbles can you take? If it’s cultivation base, I’m already an eight-ringed. I reckon that there aren’t many with more powerful soul power than mine in this entire Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge.’
With the push from the thrusters behind him, Bubble King’s mecha rose above the ground and swiftly entered the skies. It charged straight at Tang Wulin while another large bubble took form around his body again at the same time.
“Your martial soul, what’s its weakness?” At this moment, a voice suddenly came from the mecha opposite him. The voice was intentionally lowered, but this sentence had made Bubble King’s mecha slow down for a bit.
“Assuming that your martial soul is flawless, then you’d have no need to participate in the mecha battles. You should be able to gain an absolute advantage even in the soul masters battles. However, what’re you afraid of? Or maybe, you’re used to protecting yourself with a mecha. That means that there must be an extremely fatal weakness behind this powerful martial soul of yours. In reality, you’ve covered up this weakness of yours with your mecha. That’s why you’re an outstanding Mecha Master, and not a soul master or battle armor master. I wonder if I’m right.”
Tang Wulin’s voice came slowly. It made Bubble King’s flying mecha move slower and slower.
“So, what’s your weakness? It must be something that’s easily noticeable and very fatal. Otherwise, you won’t be this terrified. Let me guess, your bubbles, in a certain sense, are more like rubber. Rubber is waterproof, has a powerful defense and excellent elastic force. You could even turn them into bombs, it’s an absolute marriage of offense and defense. It fills me with endless wonders. Your rubber-like bubbles aren’t even afraid of sharp objects, and they’re inherently tough. But I believe that they must have a fatal weakness. After all, rubber has something that it’s weak against, and that’s fire!”
When Tang Wulin said the final word, Bubble King’s mecha clearly paused. It even swayed slightly.
‘Fire! Yes, rubber was weak against fire. It was also very possible for a bubble to be weak against fire. This Bubble King was truly powerful, and his battle style was also so queer. However, what if his bubbles had a weakness? What if that weakness was the same as rubber’s?’
The reason why Tang Wulin said what he said was not because he had guessed about them at the first moment. Instead, he was quickly analyzing what he knew in his heart. He had spoken out loud to buy himself some time to think.
When he followed his own train of thought and spoke out what he had analyzed, his eyes had already brightened more and more. ‘Yes, rubber was weak against fire. His martial soul might very well be weak against fire!’
As expected, Bubble King’s mecha paused. He was clearly affected by his words.
“Childish!” At this very moment, a voice came from within Bubble King’s mecha.
“If you have flames to do so, you’re welcome to try it!” As he said this, a bubble burst forth from his mecha. It shot straight toward Tang Wulin.
Did Tang Wulin have fire? Of course, he did not. The most his Golden Dragon King’s power could do was produce light that resembled flames. They were not real flames. However, just because he could not produce fire did not mean that he could not use fire.
A beam of black light suddenly spread out before Tang Wulin’s mecha. It had seemingly covered the standard mecha’s giant figure behind it. When the huge figure appeared, it drew a wave of surprised shouts from the crowd.
It was too big, it was too huge! Only a handful who watched Tang Wulin’s match in the division competition knew that he had such a possession.
The colossal figure was dozens of meters tall. The pair of disproportionate small wings flapped lightly behind it. It opened its large mouth and shot out wild flames which flew straight toward the bubble.
The bubble was already upon him. Under the impact of the flames, it immediately paused.
Just when Tang Wulin expected the bubble to be melted by his Overlord Dragon spirit soul’s flames, the bubble suddenly flashed with light. It suddenly accelerated and covered the Overlord Dragon’s head. Then, it swiftly turned red and exploded loudly.
The Overlord Dragon’s colossal body reeled under the explosion. Then, it staggered backward for two steps. It shook its giant head as if it was feeling dizzy.
‘It was not afraid of fire?’
Without a doubt, the Overlord Dragon had helped Tang Wulin block the attack. However, this also meant that Tang Wulin’s deduction was wrong. Bubble King’s martial soul was not afraid of fire! It was truly impenetrable by water or fire.
‘How was this possible? Could it be that it truly had no weaknesses? This was not logical, it was not logical in any way!’
Bubble King had started to release a second bubble already. Then, a third one was released. The two bubbles flew in different directions. One of them flew toward the Overlord Dragon while the other flew directly toward Tang Wulin. It drew an arc in the air. His control over it was extremely masterful.
‘No! it was impossible for it to not have a weakness.’
Tang Wulin made his mecha stand up. He threw his Golden Dragon Spear right at the bubble that came at him and popped it in midair. The bubble exploded loudly.
‘If it was not water or fire, then what was its weakness?’
Bubble King was not in the least bit interested in Tang Wulin’s thoughts. Currently, he was under his martial soul avatar. His bubble became extremely powerful.
Another bubble was released. This one enlarged around him.
Tang Wulin summoned his Golden Dragon Spear back to himself. At the same time, he focused his mind and spirit on Bubble King’s mecha’s movements.
At the same time when the Overlord Dragon blocked the second bubble, its colossal body suddenly took a step forward and it charged straight towards the Bubble King’s mecha. It launched an attack towards him with its own huge body. Its giant tail was already raised. Even with the Bubble King’s giant bubble’s defensive power, it would not be a pleasant experience for him if he were to be hit by this. It was truly a wild beast-like existence.
Another bubble was released. Tang Wulin was currently keeping a close watch. He suddenly noticed, before Bubble King’s bubble was released, there was clearly something flickering within the bubble. Although it was only a very weak light, Tang Wulin had still seen it clearly in that instant.
‘What was that? Soul skill infusion?’
‘What was he worried about? What was he trying to hide no matter what?’
‘His person was inside the mecha and was not visible from the outside. Could it be that he was hiding his appearance when he was releasing his soul skill? In other words, his weakness was when he was releasing his soul skill?’
When he thought about this, an idea suddenly sprung up in Tang Wulin’s mind. Maybe it was…
He tossed his Golden Dragon Spear again. However, the bubble this time was different from the previous bubbles. It created a powerful stickiness. Although the Golden Dragon Spear had stabbed into it, it was stuck to it. It descended from the skies and dropped to the ground. For the time, it could not break free.
Tang Wulin had lost his weapon.
In the spectator’s eyes, Tang Wulin, who had lost his weapon, was like a lamb awaiting slaughter in front of the Bubble King. He could fall at any moment.
