He did not have actual proof, but there was no doubt that the peace-advocating Shrek Academy had always been an obstacle for the Federation to start a war. In a sense, Shrek Academy’s destruction was a good thing for those in the Hawk Faction. At least, the opposing force had been greatly reduced.
Just like the Spirit Pagoda, although they were neutral, they were not as zealous as Shrek Academy in upholding peace.
In the first place, the Battle God Hall was under the federation’s control. They could even be one of the greatest powers in the future war.
Blood One glanced at Tang Wulin. “What do you think will happen?”
“A war! For plundering resources!” said Tang Wulin without hesitation.
Blood One sighed, “It’s unlikely to avoid that now.”
Tang Wulin’s brows knit together tightly. “A war will cause many people to lose their loved ones and destroy their homes!”
Blood One said drily, “Do you think that the federal government’s idea of starting a war was only recently conceived? This proposal had been raised many years ago. It was the Dove Faction, led by Shrek Academy, that had been strongly opposed to this. That’s why it never came to pass. But now, it’s hard to say.”
Tang Wulin sighed, “My only wish is for the academy to be restored. I want to pass on the academy’s ideals.”
Blood One shook his head, “No, your responsibility doesn’t end there. Before this, I also thought that it’d be outstanding enough of you to achieve that alone. But in reality, it’s far from enough. Do you know why?”
Tang Wulin shook his head, he was at a loss.
Blood One said drily, “For six thousand years, the Blood God Army has always kept guard at the Abyssal Passages to prevent the abyssal creatures from invading our Douluo Continent. The greatest wish of the generations of Blood God Army soldiers has always been to overcome the threat that lies in the abyssal plane. But, it has been six thousand years and none of the previous elites have been able to accomplish this feat. Nobody was even able to come up with a good plan of action to face this threat. Not until you showed up. Your Golden Dragon Spear has become the divine tool that’ll most likely settle the problem of the abyssal plane. Once the abyssal plane is settled, you’ll be a true hero of the federation and of Blood God Army. That’s why you need to do more. Nobody can teach you how exactly you should go about doing it. As your senior, what I can help you with is only about your present state. You must be in control of your own future. However, I believe that you’ll be able to do more, and do better.”
‘Overcome the threat of the abyssal plane?’ Tang Wulin’s brows slightly raised. Although he did not fully understand the meaning behind Blood One’s words, he still lightly nodded his head.
The finals had finally come.
Star Dou Battle Network had experienced a series of public crises. The organizers did all they could do to direct the public attention towards these impending finals.
It was the final match of the soul masters competition! It was Golden Dragon King up against Strength King. Without a doubt, this would definitely be an extremely interesting match.
Although there had been some accidents before this, the stadium was still jam-packed with audiences. This was partly due to the fact that nobody could actually die in Star Dou Battle Network, and this was the final of soul masters competition. The federal government had also given a guarantee on behalf of Star Dou Battle Network that there would be no danger and if something were to happen, the government would pay them a large amount as compensation. Hence, the viewership of this match had created another record in the federation.
As he sat cross-legged in the resting room, Tang Wulin meditated to silently adjusted his condition. He raised his spiritual energy to the highest level as his Golden Dragon Spear laid on his lap.
He felt more relaxed towards this match as compared to the previous match when he fought Gale Saber Demon Sima Jinchi. He was not too anxious. Maybe it was because his opponent was of the same sect as him. Instead, he felt more anticipation towards it. He looked forward to the mysteriousness of this Innate Secret Technique. He intended to test his Body Refining Method against it.
Tang Wulin’s Body Refining Method was based on his Golden Dragon King’s bloodline supported by Body Sect’s cultivation method. He reckoned that in this current world, not many would dare claim that they had a body that was stronger than his.
Especially after he was draped with the Golden Dragon King’s tenth seal and with the improvement in his cultivation base, his body’s strength had toughened up even more. Only his senior disciple brother whom he was about to face could really make him realize just how inferior he was. However, this was also a great opportunity for him to verify through his senior disciple brother just how great the difference was between the two of them and what he could learn from his senior disciple brother.
Hence, what he valued more about this match was the experience of sparring with his senior disciple brother. He did not view winning or losing as importantly as that. From his discussion with Blood One, he could feel that Blood One did not care about the final outcome of the match. Instead, he cared more about the benefits he could reap in the process.
Both competitions were already in their final stages. This also meant that he had already participated in every competition he could. Clearly, this experience itself was good enough for him. Hence in the final, he wanted to enjoy the match more than ever.
Of course, this did not mean that he would not fight with everything he had in the match. On the contrary, the more he wanted to enjoy the match, the more likely he was to display his full strength. He wanted to see how far he could go.
After all, the number of opponents that could make him fight with all he had was dwindling.
Last night, he had achieved another breakthrough in his soul power. He was already at rank-66. The pace that he was improving with even shocked himself. It must be known that he was steadily improving with an extremely firm foundation.
“Golden Dragon King, it’s time,” came a gentle voice.
Tang Wulin slowly opened his eyes. He wielded his Golden Dragon Spear and strode out of the room.
Before him were the doors that led to the competition stage. When Tang Wulin looked at the doors and the pathway under his feet, for some unknown reason he seemed to have suddenly attained some enlightenment.
That was an intriguing feeling. He could not quite get hold of it, but it mysteriously left a deep impression on him.
He slightly raised his Golden Dragon Spear. It shone with a faint golden color under the light from the competition stage. The tip of his spear was pointed in the direction which he was moving forward in.
He took a step forward and his eardrums were instantly filled with ear-shattering cheers. Countless voices shouted the Golden Dragon King and Strength King’s name.
The extremely tough-looking A Ruheng was already standing far away on the other passage’s exit. The two of them looked at each other from afar. Due to the system’s censoring, they could not see each other’s expression. However, the faraway A Ruheng raised his arms and gave Tang Wulin a big thumbs up.
Tang Wulin also raised the Golden Dragon Spear in his hands in reply.
Mu Ye stood silently before a giant soul screen. He was currently standing so close that he could even feel the slight electrical waves transmitted by the soul screen.
Sitting not far behind him was Divine Craftsman Zhen Hua. Another teacher of Tang Wulin’s sat there as well. It was Saint Craftsman Mu Chen.
Compared to Mu Ye, they were far calmer.
Mu Chen raised his teacup and took a sip. He asked Zhen Hua beside him with a low voice, “Will he be alright?”
Zhen Hua shook his head. “He’s too excited. Body Sect has been experiencing a steep decline in recent years. How could he feel eased as the current sect master? This Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge can be regarded as a major event in the federation. The final match is between his two disciples. I can imagine what he’s feeling right now.”
After saying this, he took a small pause and then he shouted at Mu Ye standing in front of the screen, “Hey, you won’t be so touched that you’d cry, right?”
“Get lost!” Mu Ye angrily retorted.
However, Zhen Hua could clearly pick up the slightly sobbing tone that was masked under his voice.
“They’re both your disciples. Who do you think will win?” asked Zhen Hua.
Mu Ye fell silent. After a long pause, he said with a low voice, “Wulin will be hard pressed. After all, I think his cultivation base hasn’t reached seven rings yet. His bloodline is stronger than Ruheng’s, but our Body Sect’s Innate Secret Technique can make up for any shortcomings in one’s bloodline. It’s strengthening of the body beyond its extremes and Ruheng has been cultivating for so many years now. With his current cultivation base, if he used Body Sect’s Innate Secret Technique when I don’t have my battle armor with me, even I would be hard pressed to defeat him quickly.”
