Chapter 715: Dragon Clouds

It was a red cloud. The rock whistled through it in a parabolic trajectory falling far away. The red cloud rippled slightly without much change.
‘It’s barely reacting, at least, it’s not some living thing.’ Tang Wulin surmised.
‘Then what do these clouds mean? If they don’t have soul power, it’s virtually impossible to raise themselves to a height of a hundred meters.’ At this moment, he could not activate his spirit soul unless he had some special techniques at his disposal.
If he could use the Bluesilver Emperor’s powerful elasticity together with his strength, and with little Goldsong’s support, Tang Wulin was confident of leaping at least a hundred meters.
However, he had to rely on his own strength which would limit his jump to about twenty or thirty meters. On top of that, he could not find a suitable object with enough elasticity to boost his jump.
‘Screw it, let’s see the kind of reaction these clouds give.’
He proceeded to stabilize his bloodline aura. Tang Wulin jumped to his feet and walked cautiously toward the plain. He approached the red cloud that was nearest to him.
The cloud was still soaring freely. It did not appear to have changed. He was nearing the red cloud and in a swift movement ducked under it. The red cloud remained unchanging.
Tang Wulin heaved a sigh of relief. He was apparently becoming friendly with the red cloud and even waved at it.
The red cloud seemed to ripple slightly but showed no marked movement otherwise.
‘Could it be the clouds are decorative?’
Just when Tang Wulin was settling himself, the red cloud began contorting. It started to spin like a whirlpool. In the next instant, the spiraling cloud fell from the sky and, like a beam of light, shot straight toward Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin was shocked beyond belief. It was impossible to evade the speeding cloud heading toward him. In the next instant, he unleashed his bloodline ring.
Three golden light rings rose from under his feet. His Golden Dragon Body was unleashed rapidly.
Bloodline aura belonging to the Golden Dragon King gushed forth majestically and rippled fiercely.
Now, a bigger problem emerged. The other colored clouds which had been passive initially, suddenly surged aggressively and began swarming toward Tang Wulin.
The red cloud had engulfed him and violently rolled up like a mat with Tang Wulin sandwiched like a hot dog in the midst of it.
Tang Wulin crossed his arms for protection. He did not feel the impact of the red cloud. The only sensation he felt was the heat from his limbs and bones surging within his body.
This feeling was intriguing. The red cloud had a strong fire element. There was yet another feeling, but barely noticeable.
It simply passed through his body and rose to the air again.
A moment after, Tang Wulin felt the heat warming up his body and his limbs shackled beyond words.
The red cloud spotting a faint hue of gold had risen to its initial height in the sky. All of a sudden, it underwent an intense contortion.
Tang Wulin barely had time to react to the red cloud when a green cloud charged into his body.
This time, Tang Wulin felt his body getting lighter and realized he was floating above the ground. At the same time, he felt the sense of freedom which Xie Xie mentioned before – the freedom of the wind element.
The green cloud also passed through his body and rose back into the sky. Next was the blue cloud which contained the water element.
One by one, the dozen or so clouds plunged into his body before they rose back into the sky. After traversing his body, each cloud was endowed with a golden hue. As for Tang Wulin, he felt the nourishing energy that the clouds had imparted. All the various elements were harmonizing within his body.
Tang Wulin was not an elemental Soul Master, but these elements exhibited a strong affinity toward him. It was the same feeling he had with the plants in the forest.
By the time the last cloud penetrated his body, Tang Wulin felt his body bursting at the seams. He hastily returned to his hiding spot and sat cross-legged.
He immediately entered into a meditative state after taking a long, slow breath.
He saw countless light spots flitting within his body. These light spots were of different colors composed of the seven elements of water, fire, earth, wind, light, darkness, and space.
The light spots slowly blended with his bloodline. After digesting these energies, Tang Wulin felt as if he had just gorged a whole cow.
‘Are these origin energies? Origin energies of various elemental attributes so concentrated that they took on a shape?’
The intimate relationship he seemed to have with these elemental attributes was because they were imbued with some dragon aura.
He could not fully grasp the dynamics of it all, but deep down he knew it was a wonderful thing. These elements were nourishing his body and stimulating his bloodline. During the fusion process, Tang Wulin discovered that his immunity toward the various elements being strengthened.
Because his soul power was sealed, the elemental energies could not blend with his soul power. However, it diffused into his body as a potent toning ingredient.
‘This must be the benefit of the Dragon Valley.’
Tang Wulin was extremely delighted. ‘No wonder Black One never mentioned the need to eat here. With these pure origin energies, why would one ever need to eat?’
‘This was amazing.’ He wondered if he could absorb the other clouds after this.
Tang Wulin felt as if he had been immersed in a pool of elemental water. Under the nourishment of the elements, his body was energized.
In a short while, he had entered a deep meditative state.
When Tang Wulin awoke from his meditation, he had no notion how much time had elapsed.
He was invigorated. It was a comfortable, powerful feeling beyond description. He had absorbed the elemental energies from the clouds and felt highly attuned to his environment which had gotten more enthralling.
So long as his mind was focused, he could discern the different elemental molecules in the air. Concurrently, Tang Wulin realized his spiritual powers had improved tremendously. Those elemental clouds must have some spiritual attributes as well.
This feeling was unbelievable.
Tang Wulin stretched his limbs. He was unsure how much time had passed. He took a glance at his soul communication tool and noticed that the time had stopped. Apparently, the time of the outside world was not relevant to this place.
There were still faint traces of gold on the soufflé of clouds which floated in the distant skies. Although it was not apparent, they looked different compared to the clouds further away.
‘Could that faint golden color be my bloodline aura? Were they tainted by my bloodline aura when they gave me the elemental origin energies?’
Tang Wulin could only speculate on the truth of the entire experience.
