Chapter 581: Second Awakening, Complete!

The Overlord Dragon changed more than his soul ring and martial soul. There was currently a forceful surge of blood essence within Tang Wulin’s body. It was so extreme that even without his control, the vigorous blood essence was already lashing against the fifth Golden Dragon King seal inside his body.
Tang Wulin was fully conscious now. He desperately tried to calm his blood essence down, but the fifth seal had obviously loosened. There was no need to ask Old Tang, as Tang Wulin could feel it himself. After the forty-nine days of tempering himself, along with large helpings of oceanic soul beast essence and meat, he could have broken the fifth seal any time he wanted.
With the progression of his cultivation base to four rings, his overall strength had taken another leap forward. Especially noteworthy was the second awakening of his Bluesilver Grass martial soul. This was a magnificent development he had never expected!
Until this moment, the strength of the Golden Dragon King bloodline had been his greatest weapon. Compared to that, his martial soul seemed much weaker. However, Tang Wulin could already feel the power after the new enhancement to his Bluesilver Grass, turning it into the Bluesilver Emperor.
If he had to face the pack of Devilsoul Great White Sharks again, he was now confident of utterly smashing them to pieces.
Four rings meant that he had also risen to a rank-6 blacksmith as well, and it signified that he had attained the inner foundation to become a one-word battle armor master.
The ten-thousand-year Overlord Dragon spirit soul meant that he did not need to look for another spirit soul even if he cultivated to six rings or seven rings in the future.
He had finally taken this step! It was not easy. It was said that cultivating one’s soul power becomes even more difficult after rank-40, but after taking this great step forward, his martial soul had evolved for a second time. At least his cultivation speed would not be any slower than his companions. He was only fifteen years old now, so he had plenty of time.
He moved his thoughts and the Bluesilver Grass vines waved silently. They floated on the surface of the ocean with their enlarged size and supported Tang Wulin’s body.
“Teacher.” Tang Wulin looked toward Mu Ye.
Mu Ye said with relief, “You’ve finally completed the second awakening. How do you feel?”
Tang Wulin smiled. “I feel amazing! I think this can be seen as my luck after all the hardships, right?”
Mu Ye nodded. “For you, the toughest days are now over. Your upcoming training will be somewhat easier.”
Tang Wulin’s expression stiffened slightly. “Teacher, you see, I’ve been at it for quite some time now. Shouldn’t I be allowed to rest for a few days?”
Mu Ye said in a deep voice, “Achievement is founded upon diligence and wasted upon recklessness. How can you rest now? Hmm, I’ll let you rest tonight.” As he said this, his body flashed and in an instant, he stood beside Tang Wulin. Then, he grabbed him and leaped into the air.
The Bluesilver Grass, which flickered with a dark golden luster, shrank and returned to Tang Wulin’s body. The two of them chased after the ship.
Early the next morning, when Tang Wulin regained consciousness from his meditation, the sky was only beginning to light up. He rushed to the balcony and faced the east as he awaited the arrival of the violet dawn.
It was certainly different. His martial soul had evolved from Bluesilver Grass to Bluesilver Emperor. The speed of his soul power’s improvements had increased noticeably. Even if the ocean was not suitable for the cultivation of a Plant System martial soul, Tang Wulin still felt that his progress sped up at least threefold.
Was this what it felt like to have a powerful martial soul? He had spent forty-nine days pacing back and forth at the edge of life and death to stimulate his potential. Eventually, he awakened his Bluesilver Grass’ ultimate source of strength, and that felt awesome!
He was genuinely grateful to Mu Ye. Without Teacher Mu Ye, he would never have reached this level.
After he finished training the Purple Demon Eyes, the sun had already risen above the ocean’s surface and it bathed the two great ships in its golden glow.
By now, they had already covered two-thirds of the journey. They were getting increasingly closer to the Star Luo Continent.
These days, the official party frequently organized some exchange activities and got everyone involved. The members of the diplomatic corps from both sides also became more and more familiar with each other.
He pushed his door open and was about to go knock on Gu Yue’s door to invite her for breakfast when the door of the room diagonally opposite his opened. Xu Xiaoyan walked out from within.
When she saw Tang Wulin, she was momentarily stunned. “Captain, you…”
Tang Wulin smiled. “What’s wrong Xiaoyan? Why are you looking at me like that? Can’t you recognize me anymore?”
Xu Xiaoyan shook her head. “It’s not that! It’s just that you look different somehow. How did you take such good care of your skin? You seem to be glowing, and your aura… I-It’s frightening me a little.”
“Huh?” Tang Wulin was slightly stunned. He instinctively retracted his aura. Only then did Xu Xiaoyan relax somewhat. “That’s better.”
Tang Wulin scratched his head. “I had a breakthrough during my cultivation last night. I wasn’t aware of my lack of control over my own aura. It won’t happen again.”
Indeed, he had not noticed it himself. After reaching four rings and fusing with the Overlord Dragon spirit soul, his aura had also virtually become a mixture of the Overlord Dragon’s ferocity and the Golden Dragon King’s aura.
Although the Overlord Dragon was certainly fierce, it displayed complete submission when faced with the Golden Dragon King. However, the Golden Dragon King’s aura itself had also taken on a new ferociousness under the Overlord Dragon’s influence.
Tang Wulin himself could not feel anything, but Xu Xiaoyan noticed the change immediately.
“Breakthrough? Captain, you’re finally at rank 40 now?” Xu Xiaoyan covered her mouth and giggled.
Tang Wulin coughed somewhat awkwardly. “What do you mean ‘finally’? Am I really that slow?”
Xu Xiaoyan nodded immediately. She then let out a series of giggles which sounded like silver bells and ran away.
They had their conversation outside. Tang Wulin had no need to knock. Gu Yue’s door was already opened. The others were also out of their rooms.
Gu Yue had heard them talking. She looked at Tang Wulin with shock. “You’ve broken through this quickly?”
Tang Wulin nodded. “I have to work hard to match you guys’ pace!”
Ye Xinglan had also walked out at this moment and said, “I’ve been trying a few times over the past few days and I can’t complete the final core component no matter what. I’m starting the process of crafting battle armor for all of you now. Captain, let’s start with you. I’ve made a right rerebrace and pauldron for you already. I want to finish at least one piece for you before I work on the others. Or should I craft a complete set for you first?”
Tang Wulin thought about it and said, “Let’s go with making one piece for each person. It’s still useful for us to increase everyone’s battle strengths and personal survival abilities. After all, we don’t know what kind of situations we’ll find ourselves in on the Star Luo Continent.
“Okay.” Ye Xinglan did not say much. She merely nodded.
At this moment, with a sudden, loud boom, the ship shook violently. Tang Wulin and the others hastily reached for something to hold onto for support in the corridor, and they managed to keep their balance.
“What’s the situation?” Tang Wulin asked with shock.
Aside from Xu Xiaoyan who had run off earlier, all members from Shrek Academy’s team were present.
“Everyone gather together. Let’s go to my cabin first,” shouted Tang Wulin in a deep voice as he pulled his own room door open.
“Brumm!” Another violent boom sounded, shaking the ocean liner once more.
Tang Wulin held the door open to allow his companions to get into his room quickly. The cabin room was certainly safer than the corridor. That was because the room had a balcony, so they could make an exit at any moment. They had more options here.
After everyone had gotten into his room, Tang Wulin quickly went to the balcony, grabbed the handrails and looked outward. When he stared at the scene before him, an expression of terror immediately showed on his face.
The azure ocean had turned dark purple without anyone noticing. A giant water column dozens of meters wide shot forth from a faraway part of the ocean. It crashed violently into the activated Soul Barrier of the ship, creating ripples and rocking it violently.
A purple ocean? What change had occurred here?
Just then, a figure descended from the sky and landed on the balcony. It was the sect master of the Body Sect, Mu Ye.
