“Tang Wulin, just you wait!” came Dai Yun’er’s furious, yet charming yell.
Tang Wulin kept his back facing her. He spread out his arms in a gesture of indifference. Dai Yun’er had not left a good impression on him. He did not like anyone who enjoyed making fun of and teasing other people. Besides, he was not a citizen of the Star Luo Empire. ‘You can do whatever you like in the Star Luo Empire, but what does that have to do with me?’
As she stared at Tang Wulin and his companions walking away, Dai Yun’er’s delicate chest heaved in fury.
“Just you wait. Just you wait…” Dai Yun’er turned around and broke into a run. She headed straight for the imperial palace.
She had snuck out that day or she would not have been without her retinue. She ran all the way back into the palace compound and dashed toward one of the imperial residences.
“Fourth brother! Fourth brother!” She started shouting before she had even reached the front of the palace.
The door to the palace swung open and out came a hearty voice. “Is the little princess in trouble again? How big is the trouble this time?” A man walked out from inside the palace. He wore a green changshan 1 and looked every bit like a commoner. His appeared to be about twenty years of age, handsome and of a slender build. He wore a faint smile on his face and held a book in his arms. He had obviously been reading just now.
“Fourth brother!” Dai Yun’er bounded toward the youth. Her tears flowed down in a flurry.
Dai Yueyan’s expressions changed, and his smile vanished immediately. He quickly spread his arms out and hugged his younger sister. “What’s the matter, my little princess. Who is it that upsets you so? Come, tell your fourth brother quickly.”
The Emperor Dai Tianling had many sons, but the atmosphere in the royal family was quite amiable. This was also a dictate of the Star Luo Empire.
Many years ago, when the Star Luo Empire was still on the Douluo Continent, there was an old teaching. The males in the family must have cutthroat battles amongst themselves, even if it meant fighting till the death. Only the strongest male could succeed to the throne. However, since a problem occurred in one of the generations, this practice was abolished. It turned into a demand where the males of the family must live together in harmony and compete fairly. Even so, the throne would go to the most outstanding one, just as it had been before.
The Dai family was a very ancient clan. Having survived until now, it was a family devoted to literature for generations.
Dai Yueyan was undoubtedly the most outstanding one among his generation. He was nineteen this year and was well-versed in literary and military skills. He was deeply loved by Dai Tianling. When he reached his twentieth birthday, he would be made crown prince.
Dai Yueyan and Dai Yun’er were born of the same mother. Amongst their many siblings, he was the one who loved this sister of his the most. He loved her even more than Dai Tianling ever did.
That was why he was the first person Dai Yun’er would find if she had any problems.
Although Dai Yun’er was odd, her personality was very energetic and cheerful. She rarely cried. The most she would do was pretend that she was wronged or pitiable to seek the sympathy of others.
When he saw his little sister’s tears, Dai Yueyan was immediately flustered.
Dai Yun’er said nothing. She only rested in her brother’s embrace and cried her heart out, all the while stomping her foot.
“Don’t cry, don’t cry, good little Yun’er. Tell Brother what exactly has happened, Brother will help you. Have you done something wrong, and Father has punished you?” Dai Yueyan asked with some doubt. This was because he clearly knew just how much his father loved his sister. He could never have brought himself to truly punish her. Otherwise, this little princess would not have grown up with such a personality.
“It’s not Father. Father would never have punished me. It’s a bad guy from foreign lands. Fourth brother, do you know about the diplomatic corps that came from Douluo Continent? There are some among the diplomatic corps who came from Shrek Academy, and they’re exceptionally mean, especially that boy named Tang Wulin. He bullied me,” complained Dai Yun’er.
“Shrek Academy?” Dai Yueyan’s blinked.
“Yeah, it’s Shrek Academy. Their diplomatic corps just arrived the other day. On the night of the banquet, I had kindly asked him out for a dance just to be friendly, but he stepped on my foot on purpose. It was so painful.”
“Oh, is he the one who you claimed you’d make into the emperor’s son-in-law so that he’d turn into a target for public scorn?” Dai Yueyan was hit with a sudden realization. He had happened to have left the city that day, but word had reached him fast. Although he was not there in person, he had heard about this matter already.
“Yes, that’s him. I didn’t really intend to make him the emperor’s son-in-law. I was only saying it. But who knew this fellow was so sly. He even entered our Continental Young High-Ranking Soul Masters Elite Competition. He only won a match or two and he’s already this arrogant. I met him on the competition grounds today, and he came over and said that I wasn’t good enough for him or something, and he said that all our Star Luo Empire soul masters are no good and even though he’s only fifteen, he could take on all of us. He’s truly despicable. I’m so angry I’m shaking! Fourth brother, you must help me vent my anger!”
Dai Yun’er had detailed her experience very colorfully. Dai Yueyan’s brows knitted together the moment he heard all this. With his understanding of his own little sister, it would be a lot to hope for if these words of hers were about thirty percent true. Still, this Tang Wulin must have crossed her somehow, or she would not have been this angry.
“Fourth brother, I swear what I said was true. He really did give me the cold shoulder because he thinks that I’m not good enough for him. Even if I was teasing him that day, but what he said, in front of all those people, I…wahh!” Dai Yun’er started crying again.
Dai Yueyan believed her this time. He knew this little sister of his far too well. If she was willing to swear on it, her words must have been true.
“He’s a foreigner. How come my little sister isn’t good enough for him?” A killing intent flashed across Dai Yueyan’s eyes.
“Yun’er, don’t cry. Brother will avenge you. The first two matches of Monster Academy’s representative team are empty. Aren’t they in the competition? Then we’ll defeat them fair and square. We’ll make them lose face completely to help you get your revenge.”
Tang Wulin did not know what he was about to face after he had crossed this princess. Having he returned to the hotel with his companions, he prepared himself for his meditations.
The Continental Young High-Ranking Soul Masters Elite Competition had made Star Luo City packed. There were far too many people. He did not wish to go out at a time like this.
Suddenly, his gaze flickered, and he instinctively fished out a badge from his chest.
The badge exuded a gentle white glow on its surface, and then a picture appeared on it. The image looked like an arrow.
The Tang Sect’s Battle Soul Hall’s distress signal!
The badge in Tang Wulin’s hand was indeed the badge of the Tang Sect’s Battle Soul Hall. Every fighter of the Battle Soul Hall had one. He was a white fighter, hence his badge was also white in color.
There was a button on the back of the badge. When one was in danger, one could press it, and every member of the Tang Sect’s Battle Soul Hall within a fifty-kilometer radius would immediately come to the rescue. The arrow on the front was to point out the direction.
Tang Wulin dared not delay his departure. He quickly changed into the Tang Sect’s Battle Soul Hall attire. A white mask rested on his face, and a hood covered his head. He got out of the hotel quickly and went in the direction of the arrow.
Ever since he got the Tang Sect’s Battle Soul Hall badge, this was his first time receiving a distress signal. He also found something very odd about this incident.
One of the Tang Sect’s Star Luo Empire headquarters was in Star Luo City. How could a Battle Soul Hall member be in danger so near the headquarters?
He followed the direction of the arrow, moving entirely on foot. He pressed forward through secluded routes as much as possible. He dashed quickly and ran straight in the direction of the arrow.
The arrow flickered with increasing speed. This meant that he was getting closer to his destination. This concerned the safety of a fellow officer from the Battle Soul Hall. Tang Wulin used his Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track. He no longer cared about prying eyes. He continued quickly without being seen by ordinary people as much as possible.
The arrow finally flickering extremely rapidly. Tang Wulin also stopped in his tracks, but when he saw this tall building in front of him, he could not help but feel shocked.
The building looked like a castle. It was simple yet extensive. Two huge words hung over the door: Tang Sect!
The distress signal came from the Tang Sect? Also, he quickly saw that there were Tang Sect Battle Soul Hall fighters who wore the same attire as him with masks on their faces who came swiftly to where he was. None of them had stopped in front. They all simply entered the Tang Sect headquarters.
Although there were some misgivings in Tang Wulin’s heart, he hastily followed the gathering fighters into this Tang Sect headquarters in Star Luo City.
He never thought that he would be coming to Tang Sect’s headquarters in such a manner. Tang Wulin had a strange feeling in his heart, but he was also filled with curiosity. Why was there a distress call coming from here?
He went in after the fighter before him. He did not have time to look around at the interior of the Tang Sect building. He only felt that the scale of this building was on par with the imperial palace. It was even larger than the Tang Sect building in Shrek City.
Very quickly, he followed the fighter in front of him into a side hall.
There were already twenty to thirty fighters in the hall. Everyone wore a hood and a mask on their faces, as was the rule of the Battle Soul Hall. Among the fighters, they were not aware of the identities of their peers, because the privacy of the fighters must be protected as much as possible.
The fighter who stood at the front of the row had his hands behind his back. He wore a black mask. His hood and other attire were like the others.
