On the other hand, it was different when he was forging according to his needs. If he could still own an extra black mecha, then his ability to sustain a fight and his overall fighting capacity would certainly make another massive leap.
He had already set down his goals for himself. His goal was to gradually elevate his soul power with stability and strive to achieve Soul Sage rank as soon as possible. At the same time, he would prepare his three-word battle armor’s materials before he devotes all his efforts to make a mecha that belonged to himself.
When all these tasks were completed and if he could achieve a certain level of foundation, he planned to begin his efforts in restoring the Shrek Academy. By then, he would also need to meet up his companions once in order to pass them their one hundred thousand year spirit souls.
Shrek Seven Monster’s abilities would certainly need to achieve an overall elevation, so they could exercise more influence in the army as well.
Of course, all these efforts were far from adequate. At least it was not enough for now. Tang Wulin wondered when would all seven of them achieve Title Douluo rank. Only then they could truly acquire a certain level of speaking rights in soul master’s world, army, and the parliament.
They could very possibly face the parliamentary stratum which opposed the existence of Shrek Academy. On the other hand, the most powerful opponent that originated from that stratum could very possibly be the Spirit Pagoda too!
Tang Wulin had never thought that he could support this type of situation on his own. They would need more assistance, and they would also need to be at a higher position in the continent with even more powerful overall abilities. Hence, they would need time to accumulate all the aforementioned points.
After his time in the Blood God Army, the hatred in Tang Wulin’s heart had settled. His impetuosity had reduced while he became more steady and far-sighted.
There was more than just himself in this after all. Anyhow, he still had Tang Sect’s support. His main focus was to utilize all the available resources to make himself powerful enough to achieve his goal.
Soon, rhythmic knocking sounds were heard in the forging workshop. It sounded akin to raindrops pattering rhythmically on the banana leaves, while occasionally as light as a dragonfly skimming the water surface. The knocking sounds were pleasant yet filled with rhythm.
The act of forging gradually calmed Tang Wulin’s state of mind, so he could experience the metal’s profoundness.
“He’s in the finals? He’s in both sides of the finals? huh! This truly is the acme of perfection, isn’t it?” Zhang Huanyun’s expression was slightly strange. Actually, his heart was bleeding! Back in the beginning, if he were to push himself a little harder perhaps he could win over the child.
Now that he thought of it, it was not like he didn’t stand a chance today. The boy once assaulted himself at that time, right? If he could use this point against him, even the old man Cao Dezhi could not possibly save him. Zhang Huanyun blamed it on himself. He was too kind.
Zhang Huanyun watched the competition between Tang Wulin and Bubble King as he heaved a deep sigh in his heart.
“Do you have more faith in my judgment now?” A voice with a tinge of humor was suddenly heard in his ears.
Zhang Huanyun spoke in an unpleasant tone, “don’t you know how to knock first?”
“We’re such old friends, won’t knocking distance us more?” A person had already taken seat opposite his office table. It was Heartless Douluo, the person whom he was still complaining about earlier”
“What sort of plans do you have now?” Zhang Huanyun looked at Cao Dezhi sitting before himself with a burning gaze.
Cao Dezhi could not help laughing as he said, “you have a sharp sense of smell huh! I’m here to meet and talk with you, don’t be a little man that keeps thinking about how the boy is not yours. I can feel that he is getting closer and closer to maturity. He is much better than what I’ve imagined. So I can’t help but say this Shrek Academy is genuinely equipped with the foresight that we don’t!”
Zhang Huanyun scoffed saying, “hey that academy is the number one academy on the continent with over twenty thousand years of history. An academy that was capable of putting forward the motto of ‘producing monsters only, not ordinary people’ since over twenty thousand years ago. How can we ever be on par with the academy when it comes to our selection of people? Speaking of which, your Tang Sect has also existed for almost twenty thousand years, right? It’s also considered a lineal descent of Shrek, so how come the Tang Sect doesn’t have such good judgment?”
Cao Dezhi said in an unpleasant tone, “I’m not here to quarrel with you. I’ll tell you the plan and you shall help me to make good omissions and fill deficiencies.”
In the abyssal passage.
‘Thump! Thump!’ A soft thumping sound was transmitting from the abyssal passage.
Jiang Wuyue frowned as his gaze fixated in the direction of the empty passage. He asked his assistant by his side, “have you carried out a careful investigation?”
“Battalion commander, I’ve already used the detector to carry out an all-rounded investigation. There’s truly no appearance of any abyssal creature’s aura. Even the Possession Demon could not hide from our newest development of reconnaissance equipment. At least on our side, I can confirm that there’s no existence of abyssal creatures.
“Thump thump, thump thump, thump thump!”
“So where is this sound coming from then?” asked Jiang Wuyue in dissatisfaction.
The assistant spoke with a bitter smile, “I don’t know. We’ve already checked every passage and the result is all the same. Genuinely, there’s no sign of any abyssal creatures. Battalion commander, there’s no need for you to be overly cautious. The abyssal side has just recently passed right! According to the records of over the past few thousands of years, there should be no large scale assaults in at least another twenty to thirty years. Even if the impact of the abyssal tide this time wasn’t as violent as before and the abyssal creatures did not suffer huge losses. But at the very least, I don’t think they have the ability to charge over again within a short period of time. We’ll still be having one or two years of stability here.”
“I hope so too. It’s just that I’ve been feeling slightly uneasy these days. Anyways, buck up everyone. Now’s the time for our watch. Nothing can happen during this period of time, understand?”
Jiang Wuyue felt that his chest relaxing slightly after giving out the remainder to his subordinates. Perhaps, it was because he was feeling rather stressful recently that he was acting with such vigilance. Not that there was never an occurrence of strange noises being emitted from the abyssal passage in the past. Anyhow, nothing came out of the reconnaissance so he should just leave it be.
As soon as he realized how stressed up he was of recently, he was furious. The cause of his stress was precisely derived from Tang Wulin.
The boy was overly perverted as well. He should be in the mecha battle’s semifinals now, right?. Lose, he should just lose! If he could actually enter finals for both battles, the boy shouldn’t be alive anymore.
It was not long since the time when he was the young generations idol-type personage in the Blood God Army. Ever since Tang Wulin received such impressive results from this year’s competition, there was nothing left for him.
He felt even more worried because Long Yuxue still remained halfhearted regarding him. It was obvious that Long Yuxue did not have any thoughts on Tang Wulin yet she still would not give him an answer.
Even his sister was incapable of helping him now for this issue. She was always talking about how he had low emotional quotient.
‘How is my emotional quotient low? I thought that I’m only a little careless when it comes to my choice of words.’ Although Jiang Wuyue felt resentful there was nothing that he could do.
‘I’ll wait until this round of watch ends before I meet up with Long Yuxue for a thorough discussion. If everything else fails, then I shall just confess my feelings to her this time. Then, I shall stalk and persist until she agrees. Hmmph! Regardless, I’m going to fight it out!’
The abyssal passage regained its silence once again. There was utterly no sign of abyssal creatures in all thirty-six branches, but the interior of the main passage that was sealed for countless years seemed to be trembling and the trembling was gently accompanied by the soft thumping sounds…
Tang Wulin felt comfortable all over his body after he returned from the forging workshop to his room. The feeling originated from being able to unleash himself to his heart’s content. Every knock he made during the process of forging felt as if he could completely vent off the dejection in his heart and enhance his spirit.
When he returned to his living quarters, he discovered in astonishment that his spiritual power was elevated despite only through two rounds of semifinals. He could sense the increase pretty obviously.
As expected, he could only improve with stress. Not only had his spiritual power improved, but his Golden Dragon Spear had also changed as well.
