Based on Dai Tianling’s knowledge of En Ci, he could tell that En Ci could actually intervene at the final moment because En Ci understood Long Yue absolutely well. However, he did not blame En Ci. After all, it was for the empire’s benefit.
In a quiet room, Mu Ye’s palm was fluttering about as he continuously tapped Tang Wulin’s body gently. His expression was awful.
He had examined Tang Wulin’s body earlier on the competition stage, and would never have left the place in a hurry if not because Tang Wulin was still alive.
However, he was holding on to a glimmer of hope as he took Tang Wulin with him.
Tang Wulin’s injuries were severe. Let alone the initial attacks, Long Yue’s strength was so powerful that even his last trample was enough to flatten a hill, what more on a body of flesh and blood.
Tang Wulin’s internal organs were seriously injured as well. Mu Ye was not particularly skilled in providing treatment but he was a Title Douluo powerhouse after all. If a shred of Tang Wulin’s vitality could be maintained, then he could at least ensure that Tang Wulin could make it past the critical stage before he figured a way to heal him.
It would have been better if they were on Douluo Continent. The Holy Douluo from Shrek Academy was the best in the healing profession. Tang Wulin’s chances of survival would increase many times over under her care and treatment.
His palms guided those pieces of fractured bones together cautiously so that the bones were at least returned to its original state and were reconnected.
Many of Tang Wulin’s bones had punctured his internal organs, and the meridians in his body were in complete chaos. His injuries were definitely severe, not to mention he had a severe loss of blood. The fact that he did not die on the spot had proven that his vitality was truly resilient.
Mu Ye felt like his heart was suppressed by a volcano as he thought about how it was not an easy task for him to come by such a disciple yet he had ended up in this situation. If Tang Wulin were to die during the treatment, he would certainly take vengeance on Star Luo Empire specifically Monster Academy.
“Huh? ” Suddenly, Mu Ye discovered a peculiar situation.
Mu Ye had healed most of Tang Wulin’s fractured bones, but he dared not touch some of the bones which had pierced his internal organs. This was because the injuries that involved Tang Wulin’s internal organs, if mishandled, could result in the failure of his vital organs.
To his surprise, he discovered that the bones which pierced into Tang Wulin’s organs did not seem to be as deeply embedded as they were initially. In short, it seemed like his internal organs had somehow squeezed out the embedded bones.
Mu Ye really felt odd. It was as if Tang Wulin’s internal organs were made of silicon and exceptionally elastic. Despite the condition of his internal organs which was not appealing, they were not too severely damaged.
‘How could this happen?’
Mu Ye himself could only cultivate his internal organs to be as tough as his body. Even then, it was only after he had achieved seven soul rings in cultivation base. What was Tang Wulin’s cultivation base now? How did he achieve this?
As Body Sect’s sect master, Mu Ye understood the human body’s structure and its bodily functions more than anyone in Star Luo Continent and Douluo Continent to this day.
Hence, he immediately stopped the attempt to pull out the bones that were pierced into Tang Wulin’s internal organs upon discovering the peculiar changes in his body. He released gentle soul power with his palms and opened up his spiritual power to mindfully feel every minute change to Tang Wulin’s body.
After every tiny fragment of bone was painstakingly squeezed out by his internal organs, Mu Ye consequently used his soul power to guide and attach the bone fragment back to its original position.
This was a long tedious process, but Mu Ye was ardent in healing Tang Wulin. Even his eyes were glowing with iridescent radiance.
Nothing was more alluring than the human body’s mystery for Body Sect. Such a situation which was happening to Tang Wulin’s body would never occur in an ordinary person. This was precisely the attraction for Mu Ye.
After an unknown amount of time, Tang Wulin’s bones were finally restored to their original state. Tang Wulin’s internal organs were also rehabilitated to their initial condition under Mu Ye’s guidance.
Tang Wulin was still barely breathing, but at least his body structure and bodily functions had been brought back to normal.
Mu Yue squinted. He pondered for a moment before walking to the bathroom located in his room and filled the bathtub with hot water.
Next, he removed bottles of liquid from his storage soul tool but hesitated for a while before he poured some of the liquid according to a certain prescription into the bathtub.
Instantaneously, the water in the bathtub began to change its color turning into a unique indigo liquid.
Tang Wulin’s body was slowly lowered into the bathtub with the aid of the soul power. A faint smile appeared on his face.
“Young fellow, it seems that you won’t die this time. I didn’t expect your body to be hiding such a capability. Anyway, I’d like to see how you’ll be recovering.”
Mu Ye pulled over a chair and sat next to the bathtub. His spiritual power continued to pay close attention to Tang Wulin’s bodily functions.
“Not found?” Gu Yue stood in her room with a sullen expression. Inside the room, its ambiance had a faintly domineering aura.
“I’m sorry, my lord. That person left too soon. We weren’t nearby at the time, so…”
“Continue your search until you find him. If I’ve full use of my power, I won’t need you incompetent fools anymore.” Gu Yue’s aura was growing more ghastly with time.
Tang Wulin was taken away by Mu Ye for a whole day without any news whatsoever.
The Shrek squad and Star Luo Empire’s government officials were involved in searching for them. However, there had been absolutely no news of them.
The Douluo Continent’s federation diplomatic corps proposed a formal protest of the grand finale match. Wu Zhangkong and Elder Cai were also engaged in the search for Tang Wulin. Unfortunately, there was still no clue as to his whereabouts till now.
“He’s still alive!” Gu Yue’s hands clenched into fists slowly. A layer of faint silver scales gradually emerged on her skin.
“If he’s dead, I’ll certainly feel it. He won’t die, he’s still alive for sure. Wulin, where are you?” The tyrannical aura on Gu Yue’s body gradually vanished. Her eyes were all red and misty with tears.
The Continental Young High-Ranking Soul Masters Elite Competition’s individual match had ended. The champion was Long Yue while the runner-up was Tang Wulin. As for the subsequent ranks, were they still important?
Due to Tang Wulin’s severe injuries and disappearance, Shrek Academy’s group of students refused to participate in the two-on-two grand finale match. Every one of them backed out from the match. There was only one thing they would do now, and it was to pray, to say a prayer for their captain.
“Old Tang.” Tang Wulin looked at Old Tang standing before him in astonishment.
He seemed to be acting like his usual self today as he had always exuded a gentle aura everytime Tang Wulin saw him. However, it was apparent that his aura today was unstable.
“You must first protect yourself well when you’re fighting against a powerful enemy. Moreover, it wasn’t a life and death battle but only a match. Why did you’ve to risk your life? Do you know that you were on a fine line between life and death? If it wasn’t for the Golden Dragon King’s bloodline power that protected you, you would’ve been dead.”
Although Old Tang’s deep voice sounded solemn, it carried an oppressive feeling.
“Truthfully, the match is too important for me. I must devote all my effort to fight. It’s for the honor of Shrek! I’ll sacrifice everything to defend it,” Tang Wulin spoke with determination.
His memory halted at the moment when he was trampled by Long Yue who bore down on him with the weight of Mount Tai. Following that, he did not know what happened. He was with Old Tang when he woke up.
“Honor of Shrek?” something changed in Old Tang’s voice.
Tang Wulin nodded strenuously. “Yes! Ever since father and mother left, I’ve been attending the academy where I’ve devoted all my effort. I truly love the academy. It’s my home and I’ve my friends there. We represent the academy even when we’re on Star Luo Continent. As the team’s captain, how can I cower when I face a powerful opponent? Yet, I still lost…”
