“If we’re in danger, don’t you hesitate. Use the dragonball immediately.” Tang Wulin reminded Dai Yun’er.
“Alright, you too. Okay?” Dai Yun’er said with a smile.
As she observed White Three who walked in front of her while keeping a watchful eye on their surroundings, Dai Yun’er had a peculiar feeling in her heart.
She had been with him the past few days. From the disdain and anger she felt toward him in the beginning, her feelings toward him had changed subtly. In fact, she had began calling him affectionately as Brother Three now.
Naturally, this had something to do with Tang Wulin helping her obtain the dragon souls which helped her to improve and gave her a good impression of him. At the same time, since she no longer hated him, she began to notice him better.
Dai Yun’er realized that White Three had extensive knowledge and was extremely skilful in actual combat. The Tang Sect Secret Techniques were much more powerful when he used it as compared to when she used it. She was quite sure that Tang Wulin knew at least the five great Tang Sect Secret Techniques, namely: Mysterious Heaven Method, Mysterious Jade Hands, Controlling Crane Capturing Dragon, Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track, and Purple Demon Eyes. One would need a large amount of contribution points in exchange for these techniques. He also knew the Disorder Splitting Wind Hammer. When he swung the pair of Heavy Silver Hammers even without the support of his martial soul, his combat strength was still off the charts.
Every time they encountered a dragon soul, he would act as her shield. Like a lofty mountain, he gave her a strong feeling that he was a reliable person.
Long Yue had similarly given her this feeling. Nevertheless, they were both mountains. However, Long Yue was a volcano, and he could erupt at any minute.
On the other hand, White Three was calm in the face of a dangerous situation. He always had the situation under control and had great survival skills in the wild. Even if White Three was older than her, their age difference would be small. In short, he was truly a rare find. Unknowingly, she was growing fond of him.
For Dai Yun’er, the current mission was more like a game in which she could experience a completely different life. That was why even when her hunger was intolerable, she had no intention to leave. This was a novel experience to her.
After she met up with Tang Wulin, she had been absorbing dragon souls almost unceasingly. She could not utilize her soul power so she was unsure how much the dragon souls would have contributed to her improvement. However, the experience had facilitated the path of her future cultivation. She would not need to worry about the strength of her body any more. After having absorbed so many dragon souls, she would need a long period to harmonize them with her body when she returned home. She would need to digest them slowly.
Unless she met with danger which put her life at risk, she would definitely not leave the Dragon Valley.
Tang Wulin squinted his eyes slightly and pressed forward carefully. His mind suddenly sensed trouble. A wave of spiritual power rippled silently through his mind. He had intended to block it with his own spiritual power, but he noticed that a three-dimensional scene appeared within his mind. His surroundings suddenly became more vivid. The three-dimensional figures within a hundred meters of him had surprisingly presented themselves in his mind.
This was …
Tang Wulin turned around and looked at Dai Yun’er with shock. Dai Yun’er met his gaze with a triumphant look.
“Isn’t it powerful? This is my spiritual sharing. My second martial soul, Spirit Eye is of a spiritual attribute. The limit on my soul power’s utilization does not affect me much. I can use this as long as my spiritual power is strong enough. I’m sharing my spiritual detection with you.”
Tang Wulin raised a thumb toward her.
Back when he fought Dai Yun’er the first time, he had noticed that Dai Yun’er could easily detect his movements. It was only after the encounter that he realized that she had an ability akin to spiritual detection which allowed her to anticipate his movements with precision. However, he never thought that she had such an ability as spiritual sharing. No wonder Long Yue had partnered with her during the two-on-two competition. With her twin martial soul, provided it did not conflict with her Hell Civet, she would definitely be an expert of the generation in the future!
Tang Wulin smiled. “An amazing ability.”
With her spiritual detection as their guide, they moved forward much more quickly. They could even closed their eyes to find the best path to move forward. That enabled them to make early preparations for their encounters with the dragon souls.
“There’s a big one in front of us!” Tang Wulin stopped in his tracks. He gestured to Dai Yun’er behind him.
The two of them squatted down behind a shrub.
At the periphery of the spiritual detection’s range, a dragon soul that exuded a faint reddish glow was pacing. The dragon soul was more than twenty meters tall and its pair of wings were extended behind its back. Its body seemed to be covered by a formless blazing flame as it dragged its long tail behind. Its foreclaws were extremely sharp.
“What dragon is this?” asked Dai Yun’er softly.
Tang Wulin said, “I think it’s a Blazing Fire Dragon. It’s a real dragon, not an elemental dragon. Then again, its body seem odd. A true Blazing Fire Dragon would at least be more than a hundred meters long. It’s a terrifying creature. However, this dragon soul is only about thirty meters long.”
Dai Yun’er’s breathing was slightly rushed. “There’s nothing wrong with that! You mustn’t forget that a dragon soul only possesses one percent of its original strength. Naturally, their body can’t be as huge as a real dragon. So, it’s logical.”
Tang Wulin’s gaze flickered slightly. If that was the case, then the sight before them made sense.
“Do we go around it?” Tang Wulin asked hesitantly.
Before this, they had encountered a few powerful dragon souls, but they were not of the level of a real dragon. If they fought with a real dragon, it would be virtually impossible for Tang Wulin to not use his bloodline rings. His identity would be exposed.
“Why should we go around it? The dragon soul of a real dragon will most certainly have a greater enhancing effect on us. I’ll give this dragon soul to you. Why don’t we give it a try?” Dai Yun’er looked eager to try.
Tang Wulin whispered back, “Forget it. It’s too dangerous. You mustn’t forget that our objective is to find the dragon graveyard.”
Dai Yun’er pouted at first, but eventually she nodded. “Alright, we’ll go around it.”
“Roar!” At this very moment, an excited dragon’s roar sounded. Shortly after, the Blazing Fire Dragon realigned its body, flapped its wings, and flew straight in their direction.
“This is bad. It detected my spiritual waves,” Dai Yun’er exclaimed with shock.
Tang Wulin yelled with a deep voice, “Run!” He pulled Dai Yun’er and ran to the side with blinding speed.
The Blazing Fire Dragon flapped its wings and rose into the skies. It opened its mouth and shot a huge fireball at both of them.
The fireball had unexpectedly enlarged as it flew through the air. When it was less than ten meters from Tang Wulin and Dai Yun’er, it had ballooned to a diameter of two meters. Within seconds, the scorching temperature reduced the surrounding plants to ashes.
Tang Wulin worried about nothing else. He pulled Dai Yun’er and kept her in his embrace. Then, he exerted a force with his legs as he pushed hard against the ground and leaped horizontally to the front. His entire person shot forward like a cannonball.
A loud boom sounded behind him. The powerful wave of the impact together with a heat shockwave instantly rammed into Tang Wulin’s back.
Tang Wulin grunted. The dragon scales on his body appeared silently. The formless enamel layer flickered slightly.
The speed at which he and Dai Yun’er flew increased. They flew over a distance of tens of meters in the blink of an eye. He rolled as he landed.
Dai Yun’er had only felt the rising temperature of her surroundings. She instinctively grabbed onto Tang Wulin’s clothes. Her eyes were shut tight. She had no idea why she felt as if she was treading on clouds, almost as if heaven and earth were upside down. Presently, there was not an ounce of fear in her heart. Instead, it was filled with a strange feeling of excitement.
‘He will protect me.’ This was the only thought in her mind right now.
She rolled along with Tang Wulin as he landed. He decided to run ahead while holding her in his arms. He could not compare with Dai Yun’er in terms of nimbleness. However, in terms of speed, Dai Yun’er with her soul power might not even be a match for him.
Tang Wulin rushed forward with blinding speed. He ran furiously while his legs erupted with energy. Golden dragon scales had already surfaced on his body.
