Chapter 721: Brother Three! You’re So Amazing!

Aided by his Golden Dragon King bloodline, the speed at which Dai Yun’er absorbed the dragon soul was greatly increased, as Tang Wulin unintentionally discovered. With the help of his bloodline aura, the low-level dragon souls disintegrated obediently and fused with Dai Yun’er after being purified.
With her body strengthened, Dai Yun’er’s entire petite frame seemed to be much livelier. She was not so easily exhausted anymore, nor did she have any need to eat.
After half an hour, Dai Yun’er leaped from the ground. She had reached a full four or five meters up before slowly floating down like a falling leaf.
Even though she did not have the support of her soul power, she could still leap that high. It was purely physical prowess!
“Amazing, amazing! Brother Three, you’re amazing!” Dai Yun’er suddenly pounced on Tang Wulin and landed a kiss on his mask. He was so frightened that he took a few steps back.
“Let’s go,” said Tang Wulin with slight helplessness.
Dai Yun’er pulled on his arm and said with a face full of smiles, “Brother Three, you’re too good to me. My teacher once told me that if I wanted to cultivate to the rank of Title Douluo in the future, I must focus on improving my body’s physical strength. Because only with a tough body could I bear the immense soul power and the subsequent compressed soul power. I have a twin martial soul, but they are of the agility system and the spirit system. They do not do much to improve my body. My teacher had also told me that if I relied solely on heaven-and-earth treasures to improve my body, it would render my foundation unstable. I wasn’t willing to give up, which is why I trained so hard. I’ve been working diligently for all these years, yet my progress wasn’t as great compared to the gains of these past few days! I was truly wrong about you before this. If I knew that you were such a nice person earlier, I would have most certainly allowed you to sleep inside the room.”
Tang Wulin coughed. He pulled his arm from her embrace and left no trace. “Yun’er, it’s improper for a man and a woman to touch in passing. You must be mindful of this!”
Dai Yun’er smiled. “What are you afraid of? I’m not married yet anyway. Speaking of that, it’s all so troublesome. My participation in this Battle Soul Hall operation was forced upon me by my father, the emperor. He insisted that I find him a son-in-law after this year’s Continental Young High-Ranking Soul Masters Elite Competition ended. He initially intended to matchmake me with big brother Long. Do you know big brother Long?”
Tang Wulin’s heart skipped. “You’re referring to the one from Monster Academy right? The Dragon King?”
Dai Yun’er giggled. “That’s right! Everyone calls him Madman Long. Even my fourth brother said that big brother Long has always been fond of me.”
“What about you? Do you like him?” asked Tang Wulin.
Dai Yun’er said pointedly, “Idiot. If I liked him, would I run away?”
When she said this, her expression suddenly turned gloomy. “I know that big brother Long is very good to me. He’s so powerful. He’s known as the greatest genius of the younger generation, and he’s already a six-ringed Soul Emperor at only twenty years old! There’s no one among the younger generation that can best him. He’s especially good to me, and I can also feel the affection he has for me. But I’m a little afraid of him.”
“He’s always giving off a mad aura without noticing, and it scares me. If I somehow really ended up being with him, he might kill me with a single slap. It’s because of this fear I have that I cannot seem to bring myself to like him. That’s why I’ve always looked at him as a big brother in my heart.”
“You don’t have to marry him if you don’t like him. In our Federation, we completely advocate the freedom to love. Nobody can interfere with anyone in this matter,” said Tang Wulin.
Dai Yun’er said, “But we can’t! I’m a princess. According to the rules of the royal family, a princess must be engaged when she turns fifteen and get married when she’s eighteen. This is the rule of the royal family. So even though I’ve run away this time, once I get back, I reckon that father emperor will still be forcing this on me. Still, I am lucky, at least I have the right to choose. Father emperor said that as long as it’s a person that I like, he wouldn’t mind who that person was. But I must stick to the royal family’s rules. He won’t compromise on my age.”
Tang Wulin said, “That sounds great! Don’t you have anyone that you like?”
Dai Yun’er was instantly stunned. A figure flashed across her mind. She suddenly said angrily, “No, no.”
Tang Wulin was astonished. ‘Is it normal for girls to have such a huge change in mood when their relationships are brought up? Gu Yue was like this and so is Dai Yun’er.’
Dai Yun’er shook her head. She tried very hard to purge that figure from her mind, “Let’s not talk about this. Brother Three, you’re such a wonderful man, you must have a girlfriend already, no?”
Tang Wulin shook his head, “I don’t. I think I had one originally, but she seems to think that I’m no longer good enough now. Besides, I feel that she had an ulterior motive for getting close to me before this.”
Dai Yun’er had the looks of a gossip. “Tell me, tell me. What happened?”
Tang Wulin sighed softly and said, “Back then, we entered the academy to study together and cultivate together. Naturally, we’ve always been close. Over time, I’d gotten used to having her around. If she was around, I’d always feel happy. During that time we were both still young, and I wasn’t sure what that kind of feeling was. But as time goes by, gradually, this feeling seemed to have changed. Her temper started becoming peculiar, and she maintained a lukewarm relationship with me. Recently, she seemed to deeply dislike me. She even made me feel that she had an ulterior for getting close to me back then. I think it has something to do with our martial souls.”
Dai Yun’er frowned. “That’s complicated! Actually, I think that you’re thinking too much. You only have to tell me if you like her or not.”
Tang Wulin was slightly stunned. After a while, he nodded.
Dai Yun’er smiled, “Isn’t that all that matters? If you like her, then go pursue her. Why do you care what she thinks? Have you ever told her how you feel? I think that everything can be changed. Isn’t love all about flinging caution to the wind?”
Tang Wulin laughed hysterically. “You seem to know a lot about these matters.”
Dai Yun’er said triumphantly, “I’m sure I know more than you. Let’s go. I hope I can encounter some powerful dragon souls. Brother Three, do you really not want to absorb any dragon souls?”
“It’s alright. They don’t seem to do much for me,” Tang Wulin replied.
The two of them continued to walk toward the depths of the forest. It was strange when they thought about it. Nowhere along the way did they meet a fighter who had entered into this dimension at the same time as them. There seemed to be a profound mystery of the small world at work here. As for the specifics, even Tang Wulin did not know about them.
“Boom!” Tang Wulin’s hammers slammed fiercely onto the skull of the red Armored Land Dragon in front of him and smashed it into the ground. With the stunning effect of his bloodline aura, he forcibly shook it until it turned into energy, which he directed toward Dai Yun’er.
“Wow, what a thick and strong dragon soul.” After Dai Yun’er absorbed it, she immediately felt as if her entire body was stuffed.
“Brother Three, we’ve been walking for so long. Are you sure we’re on the right path?” Dai Yun’er asked Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin nodded without hesitation and said, “At first I wasn’t, but now I can be certain. Did you notice that along the way, the strength of the dragon souls we encountered was increasing? Based on my logical deduction, the dragon soul which guards the dragon graveyard must be the strongest. Then, the weak little dragon souls which we had encountered at first must’ve been from the periphery of Dragon Valley. And the stronger the dragon souls get, the closer we are to the central region of Dragon Valley.”
“You sound like you have a point.” Dai Yun’er’s eyes beamed. “But it’s becoming more and more difficult for us to fight these dragon souls. Brother Three, if we encounter any powerful dragon souls, we don’t have to push ourselves too hard. I’ve already absorbed so many dragon souls. I daresay that among the fighters who have entered here in the past, there aren’t many who can be compared to me. I’m already satisfied. In the case that we’re faced with danger, we’ll use the dragonballs to run away.”
Tang Wulin grunted in reply, but in his heart, he was longing to go and have a look at the dragon graveyard. He did not display his bloodline soul ring before Dai Yun’er before this, because he feared that he would be found out by her. Hence, he was well within his limits while he fought the dragon souls which they had encountered up until now.
