The dragon cloud descended from the skies. Dai Yun’er was all excited and ready to absorb the energy within the dragon cloud. Jjust when the black dragon cloud was about to touch her, all of a sudden, it split in the middle and went past her.
She turned around and was shocked to see the two masses of black clouds surged directly into Tang Wulin to reemerge on the other side of his body. The black cloud was tainted with a dash of gold, and it stirred up a breeze as it rose back to the sky.
“You’ve stolen my dragon cloud. You liar, your martial soul is also of the darkness attribute!” When Dai Yun’er saw that her great opportunity was lost, she was terribly upset.
“Firstly, you’ve never asked about the attribute of my martial soul. Secondly, am I truly a darkness-attribute?” Tang Wulin pointed behind her.
Dai Yun’er instinctively turned around to look. Her pupils dilated instantly, and her delicate face was filled with incredulity.
What was that?
The dragon clouds had descended from the skies. They merged into a dragon’s form and was swarming toward them.
In the next instant, the dragon clouds were upon them. Regardless how agitated these dragon clouds were, not one of them landed on her. They went past her and rushed toward her partner instead.
The dragon clouds passed through his body acquiring a dash of golden color, then in a breeze shot toward the skies.
Dai Yun’er stared with her mouth agape. White Three walked forward leisurely amidst those dragon clouds as if nothing ever happened.
In the previous two months, he had experienced similar situations numerous times. For Tang Wulin, it was nothing surprising.
‘How can this be?’
Dai Yun’er had the most incredulous look on her face. She could not believe this was really happening.
‘Aren’t the dragon clouds only suppose to shower their blessings upon those with the same attributes as themselves? Also, the person must have a high affinity with them for this to be possible. How can he absorb almost every type of dragon cloud?’
She was the proud daughter of god, a princess of the Empire, and also a twin martial soul. She felt that she should be the one loved by the heavens.
Currently, the disappointment she felt in her heart was just too deep. This guy in front of her seemed to have become outrageously big and tall. She was filled with intense anger inside. ‘Why is the heavens so unfair? Why can he absorb that many dragon clouds, while I can’t even have one?’
“It’s alright once you get used to it.” Tang Wulin walked past her and continued forward swiftly.
He had gotten used to this long ago. Although these dragon clouds that penetrated his body would still be of some help to him, the effect they had on him were much lesser when compared to the beginning. Of course, they still had a certain level of effect if enough dragon clouds were absorbed by him.
‘He doesn’t even need to stop moving to absorb them. Won’t he have to digest the energy from these dragon clouds?’
“Dragon clouds are ineffective for you. Then why’re they surging toward you?” Dai Yun’er was comforting herself. Maybe, there was something special on his body, and he could not absorb the dragon clouds in the first place. Otherwise, it was illogical for him to keep moving even after the dragon clouds surged through his body.
“Hmm, you can put it that way,” Tang Wulin was unwilling to explain further.
Time had proven Tang Wulin’s words true. After a whole day, by the time they had traversed the entire plain, Dai Yun’er was already numb to this phenomenon.
She had gotten used to the sight of those dragon clouds passing through Tang Wulin’s body. She was quite sure that these dragon clouds must had no effect on Tang Wulin. Otherwise, how could he be so nonchalant from the very beginning?
However, what she did not know was that the enamel layer on the surface of Tang Wulin’s body would become apparent once he utilized his bloodline power. His physique was silently changing under the surface.
They finally made it out from the plain. The dragon clouds in the skies were becoming sparse.
“Finally, I won’t have to be annoyed by you,” said Dai Yun’er angrily.
Tang Wulin chuckled and said nothing. When they exited the plain, the friendly call became apparent.
Suddenly, rustling sounds came from in front of them.
“Careful, there seems to be a dragon soul.” Dai Yun’er quickly hid behind Tang Wulin in alarm.
Her voice had barely faded when a dozen dragon souls appeared within their sight.
These dragon souls were more than half a meter tall. They stood on the ground with two legs with which they moved quickly. Their heads were huge. When their jaws were opened, they exposed a mouthful of fangs. They did not have wings behind their backs and were obviously lower ranked Speed Dragons. With blinding speed, they surrounded Tang Wulin and his partner with their ferocious jaws opened.
“Leave some for me, will you? I want to absorb their energies.” Dai Yun’er hastily reminded Tang Wulin. After travelling with him for more than a day, she realized that his bodily traits were almost inhuman. Not only did he have powerful strength, he was hardly tired, and he ate a lot. By the time she consumed a flatbread, he had already finished four to five flatbreads.
Tang Wulin replied with a grunt. Then, he took a sudden step forward. He felt a slight rage within him, a rage that was the result caused by the insolent behavior of a subordinate toward her superior.
Faced with this group of little Land Dragons, he shouted coldly, “Scram!”
These Speed Dragons that were formed by energy had just made it to within ten meters of Tang Wulin when they heard him yell. Their bodies froze all of a sudden. Dai Yun’er’s just stared with her mouth agape. These Speed Dragons had without any warning simply exploded. They transformed into balls of energy and flew in Tang Wulin’s direction.
“Hey!” Dai Yun’er exclaimed hysterically. Her voice was filled with resentment. She no longer cared about the dragon clouds, but he had agreed to leave some of these dragon souls for her!
Tang Wulin swung his hand as if he was swatting a fly. There seemed to have been some sort of guiding path in the air for those balls of energies. The energies produced by the Speed Dragons flew past him and surged directly into Dai Yun’er’s body.
Dai Yun’er felt her body warm up. It felt comfortable, but it was profoundly difficult to describe the feeling. The energies produced by the dozen little Speed Dragons were completely absorbed by her.
Tang Wulin frowned slightly. ‘What was that feeling just now? It felt like distaste.’ It was a feeling that came naturally from his bloodline, which seemed to dislike the energies produced by those Speed Dragons.
It was the same feeling as when he absorbed the energy from the Ironhead Dragon. Although it was energy, he did not feel quite comfortable absorbing it into his body. It was a different feeling from absorbing the dragon clouds.
Could it be that the energy contained within the dragon souls and dragon clouds were different? The dragon clouds’ energy was purer, hence his body was energised after he absorbed it whereas these dragon souls’ energy originated from the Land Dragons. Was that why his body rejected them?
If this were the case, then it seemed to be a satisfactory explanation.
“Good guy.” Dai Yun’er hopped over with a sweet smile on her face. She removed her mask, and her expression was one of joy. Ever since she came into the Dragon Valley, she had not absorbed a single dragon soul let alone a dozen like she did just now. She could clearly feel her body strengthened by the influence of the heat wave that flowed through her body. This feeling was so wonderful for her.
Tang Wulin opened his mouth, but he was too shy to utter the words. All he did was gave her the excuse that he was unwilling to absorb them. She had no need to thank him.
However, when he heard her calling him a good guy, it felt better than being called a bad guy. ‘I’ll just let it be…’
Upon entering the forest, the dragon souls they encountered increased in numbers. However, most of them were the less powerful Land Dragons. Even if they were not intimidated by Tang Wulin’s bloodline aura, Tang Wulin’s godly strength and the Soul Forged Heavy Silver Hammer would make short work of them.
Tang Wulin had no need for the energies contained within these dragon souls. He simply guided these energies toward Dai Yun’er with his body’s natural rejection of them.
Dai Yun’er, who was initially quite unsatisfied with Tang Wulin, had begun to treat him better.
“I can’t go on. I want to meditate and absorb all this energy for a while.” Due to her absorbing too much dragon soul energies, her delicate face was flushed as if she had just had some wine. She sat on the ground.
She looked at Tang Wulin with a smile. “I think I’ve been wrong about you before this. You’re truly a good guy. After we get out of here, I’ll give you more rare metals. I’ll even ask father emperor to make you a noble.” A moment later, she closed her eyes and began to meditate.
When he saw the satisfied smile on her face, Tang Wulin could not help but laughed hysterically in his heart. This young girl truly drew a clear line between whom she hated or loved. If the person treated her nicely, she would treat them well. Where she stood to gain, it was easy to negotiate with Her Highness the princess.
After being with each other for two days, Tang Wulin noticed that Dai Yun’er actually had a few good traits. Although she was a little eccentric, she had a good nature. She was also easy to get along with, and she did not have the airs of the royal family. Especially after Tang Wulin helped her in absorbing the dragon souls, she had thought of him as her brother.
She stopped calling him White Three. Instead, she called him Brother Three. Her sweet voice gave Tang Wulin goosebumps whenever he heard her calling him. In any case, the relationship between them had improved without a doubt.
Tang Wulin went behind Dai Yun’er and sat down. He pressed his right palm on her back and activated his bloodline aura.
