Chapter 696 Tang Wulin Wants to Kill Someone?
“Have you truly made up your mind?” Old Tang looked at Tang Wulin sternly.
“Yes, Old Tang. I’ve made up my mind. If I don’t fight this time, I feel that I’ll regret it for the rest of my life. Although this will make my future cultivation more difficult, I won’t regret it. After learning the method of opening up my Eight Extraordinary Meridians, I’ve already opened up two Meridians, and my soul power has increased a lot. Also, it seems that my body’s strength has also improved because of Teacher Mu Ye’s potion. In addition, there are the needed heaven and earth treasures you mentioned. So, I do stand a chance.”
Old Tang sighed, “A man must leave other things undone if he wants to get some things done. Since you’ve already made your decision, just do it. However, this is the only time I’ll allow you to do this. There’ll be no next time. I’ll do my best to shorten the time needed for the last few seals.”
Old Tang said in a low voice, “As long as you can open up all the Extraordinary Eight Meridians in the next five years and connect the Heaven and Earth Bridge, you’ll basically not be in any danger within the first nine layers of seals. Nevertheless, you must remember you cannot slack off because the seals after the ninth layer will be your biggest challenge. Every layer of seal thereafter will be a matter of life and death.”
Yes, three circles. Three full circles of golden soul rings appeared on Tang Wulin’s body. Even he was unwilling to recall the process. The only thing he remembered was this was his most painful experience of breaking through the Golden Dragon King seals.
Shortly after he unsealed the fifth layer’s seal, he immediately unsealed the sixth layer. The burden it had placed on his body had exceeded his expectations. The burden was so excruciating that he almost exhausted his energy. Together with the support of Old Tang and Teacher Mu Ye’s external forces, he managed to successfully assimilate it. That gave rise to the third golden soul ring on his body.
The sixth layer’s seal was unsealed, and the third soul ring appeared. Tang Wulin’s Golden Dragon King bloodline aura was instantaneously raised to the next level.
The first person to bear the brunt was Long Yue who suffered the most intense experience.
His bloodline was trembling. The light halo given off by the three circles of soul rings seemed to generate an immense pressure on him.
Long Yue frowned slightly. He felt, for the first time, that Tang Wulin who stood opposite him was a serious threat. This menace came from his bloodline, even more so from his growth.
After being gravely wounded, he had healed and grown with blinding speed instead. They both had a cultivation base of four rings, but Tang Wulin’s overall strength had improved tremendously. Before, he had lost in terms of strength. Currently, he would undoubtedly have improved on his combat strength.
Although Long Yue did not think that the current Tang Wulin could pose much of a threat to him, there was no telling what would happen in the future. If an opponent who possessed a dragon type bloodline more powerful than Long Yue’s was given five or ten years to grow, perhaps Long Yue would be overtaken by such an opponent.
Sure enough, Tang Wulin was very powerful!
Long Yue’s Mountain Dragon King martial soul was stirred up immediately. His body suddenly swelled up. Dai Yun’er who stood beside him quickly took two steps backward. She utilized her own martial soul. When her Hell Civet martial soul was unleashed, her eyes lit up as well.
Through spiritual detection, she was shocked to discover that Tang Wulin was currently like a blazing golden flame. The thickness of the bloodline aura on his body suppressed her skill so much that she could not detect the level at which his bloodline flowed within his body.
‘He has gotten stronger. Could that fatal injury have improved his cultivation base instead?’
At this moment, Tang Wulin was already upon Long Yue. He spread his arms sideways, and a pair of giant hammers appeared impressively.
When he last fought Long Yue, he had used these giant hammers, which could only be used by mechas, with his Disorder Splitting Wind Hammer to suppress Long Yue until he lost to him in terms of strength. This time, he employed the same tactics. He raised both hammers and swung them mercilessly at Long Yue.
The double pointed lance appeared in Long Yue’s right hand. He moved swiftly, and the lance turned into two beams of light. He tapped Tang Wulin’s pair of giant hammers with the light beams.
“Ding! Ding!” Two crisp rings were heard. Tang Wulin descended from the skies as his forward charge was halted. Surprisingly, Long Yue took two steps backward.
From the collision alone, it was enough to reveal Tang Wulin’s growth. His strength was stronger than when he fought Long Yue the last time. Even without the Disorder Splitting Wind Hammer, he was no longer inferior to Long Yue.
Golden dragon scales covered his entire body whereby he had unleashed his Golden Dragon Body a while back. Tang Wulin swept horizontally with both hammers as he aimed for Long Yue’s waist.
On the other side, Dai Yun’er moved in an arc. She went past Tang Wulin and Long Yue in front of her. With the Hell Civet’s agility, she sprinted toward Gu Yue.
Gu Yue did not rush forward with Tang Wulin. Instead, she remained where she stood. Seemingly, she had not even unleashed her martial soul. It was as if this match was irrelevant to her.
Regarding Gu Yue’s strength, Monster Academy had carried out some basic assessment. Their judgment of her was that she was either a long-range attacker or a control system battle soul master.
The battle in which she displayed an outstanding performance was when she fought Hua Lantang and Ye Zhi with Tang Wulin. In the two-on-two match, with her exceptional control over space and the elements, she forced Hua Lantang into losing the match without even donning his battle armor.
That was why Dai Yun’er went straight for Gu Yue the moment the match began. She did not intend to get involved in the battle between Tang Wulin and Long Yue. She knew her limitations which would not enable her to join in a battle of that level.
However, if she could defeat Tang Wulin’s partner, her objective would have been achieved.
In no time, she had rushed within fifty meters of Gu Yue. A glow flashed on her eyes, and a beam of spiritual assault was unleashed. She knew that Gu Yue had the Spatial Retreat skill. Hence, she had it planned beforehand. She would control Gu Yue through her spiritual assault to prevent her from unleashing her Spatial Retreat skill. For a soul master such as her, once she got close to her opponent, with her Hell Civet martial soul and the assessment of her opponent using her spiritual detection, she would definitely be able to defeat her opponent within a short span of time.
She unleashed her spiritual assault. However, Gu Yue was looking at Dai Yun’er with a calm gaze. Dai Yun’er suddenly felt her spiritual power being swallowed by a huge whirlpool within the ocean. Seemingly, she was pulled deep within the vortex.
With a muffled grunt, Dai Yun’er who had been charging toward Gu Yue at a blinding speed suddenly staggered. Her body lost its balance and she fell straight onto the ground.
Silver light flashed and a figure appeared beside Dai Yun’er. The figure lifted its right hand which had clenched her throat. Dai Yun’er was hanging in the air.
All these happened in the blink of an eye. The first bout between Tang Wulin and Long Yue had just ended while the battle between Gu Yue and Dai Yun’er had already ended.
Dai Yun’er fell under Gu Yue’s control.
“My god! What’s this? Why did Her Highness the princess’s body suddenly lose control causing her to fall into the hands of her opponent?” Even Fang’er did not comprehend what she saw but the outcome was plain as day. Dai Yun’er had barely shown herself when she was captured by Gu Yue.
Silver light flashed again, and Tang Wulin vanished into thin air. When he reappeared, he was already beside Gu Yue.
The double pointed lance in Long Yue’s hand hit at nothing. When he saw that Dai Yun’er had fallen into the hands of their opponents, he was stupefied.
Although Dai Yun’er had a cultivation base of four rings, she was a twin martial soul. She was richly endowed with natural gifts such as her Spirit Eye martial soul. Also, she had the Hell Civet martial soul which was an inheritance from the royal family. Her two great martial souls were not inferior to an ordinary Soul King ranked expert.
Specifically, it was Dai Yun’er who had been captured shortly after making her appearance in front of her opponents. This was truly unbelievable!
“Don’t move or I’ll show her no mercy.” Tang Wulin stared fiercely at Long Yue. A cold intent to kill burst forth from his eyes which were gradually showing a faint tinge of red. The pair of hammers in his hands disappeared, and he extended his Golden Dragon Claws. The sharp tips of his claws were placed on Dai Yun’er’s head.
Everyone knew that, with the sharpness of his Golden Dragon Claws, if he wanted Dai Yun’er’s life, all he had to do was to lightly tap her head, and everything would have ended.
