Dai Yun’er hastily spoke, “Black One, we found the dragon graveyard. There was an enormous seven-colored shadow within the dragon graveyard. Brother Three said that it could possibly be the Dragon God’s dragon soul. The dragon’s awesome power was extremely overbearing that I fainted soon after. I don’t know what happened after that.”
Dragon graveyard? The numerous fighters could not help feeling surprised upon hearing those words. However, their gazes soon dulled because it did not matter anymore as the Dragon Valley had already collapsed.
Black One frowned but did not utter a word.
“Where’s Brother Three? Everyone is out, so where’s he? I want to ask him if he had gotten any soul bones,” Dai Yun’er spoke excitedly. They had actually found the dragon graveyard. She had lost hope of getting a piece of the Dragon Clan’s soul bone herself but was hoping that Tang Wulin would have gotten it instead.
Black One was silent.
“What’s going on?” Dai Yun’er looked at the crowd in bewilderment. Her puzzled face soon showed a sign of relief. “Brother Three has yet to come out, right? Right, he’s so outstanding he’ll persevere for a longer period of time.”
Black One sighed then shook his head gently. “White Seven, the small world of the Dragon Valley has lost its connection. It’s highly possible that it has already collapsed.” He would rather tell her the truth now since it was better a finger off than one wagging. He could sense that the princess seemed to have feelings for Tang Wulin.
Dai Yun’er was stunned for a moment at first. Soon after, she shrieked aloud, “That’s impossible.”
“That’s, that’s impossible. He was like a fish in water within the Dragon Valley. Most of the dragon souls were in awe of his bloodline power. He was the favorite in that place. We wouldn’t have made it to the dragon graveyard without him. How could he not see that the place was collapsing? How could he not escape in time? If he could help me come out from there, he would certainly be confident to leave the place himself. Let’s try again to see if we can connect to the small world of the Dragon Valley. There must be some mistake.”
Black One shook his head. “White Seven, stay calm. You’ve learned about the small world before, and you should understand what it means to lose a connection with a small world.”
“No, no, no, no! Argh!” Dai Yun’er’s shriek reverberated in the entire mountain valley.
Tang Wulin slowly regained his consciousness after a period of time had passed.
His body was in intense pain as if his whole person was torn apart. The feeling was excruciating to say the least. The only thing he remembered was when he used his Golden Dragon Spear to poke at the dragon soul.
It was at that very instant when he regretted his action. It was an energy capable of blotting out the sky and covering up the earth that radiated from the dragon soul. He did not expect to absorb the Dragon God’s dragon soul by himself.
At present, his entire body was in so much pain he felt like he was breaking apart. He took a few deep breaths before he managed to lessen the pain with much effort.
He lowered his head to look at his body and was startled. He was astonished to find that his body appeared larger than before but there were many dense and fine tears on his skin as if his body had burst.
The tears had already formed scabs but it looked even more frightening. The scabs were in crisscross patterns which formed streaks of scars. No wonder he was in so much pain. He wondered what had happened to him!
Tang Wulin managed to calm himself before he took a rest in an attempt to balance the energy in his body.
His soul power was still suppressed but his bloodline power was easily equalized. When Tang Wulin realized the bloodline aura was as powerful as tidal waves within his body, he was a little stunned. The tempestuous bloodline energy surged into his meridians in an instant.
His meridians, bones and internal organs were glowing in a bright golden color that was much deeper than before. The powerful bloodline energy circulated and expunged the pain in his body at once. A flood of indescribable strength radiated through his whole body until he became numb.
Then, he saw the dense and fine scabs beginning to peel and reveal the tender skin beneath. It took only a short while before his skin was completely healed and was like new.
The surface of his whole body felt like it was crusted with an enamel that was beyond smooth and appeared moistened with a faint gloss.
Tang Wulin exerted his strength slightly when his body floated in a flat lying position. He did a somersault and stood upright.
What a feeling of immense potency!
‘Huh, where’s the Dragon God’s dragon soul? Where’s Yun’er?’
Dai Yun’er disappeared at the same time the enormous Dragon God’s dragon soul vanished leaving behind a deserted mountain valley. Even the intense dragon-type aura fluctuation which he felt earlier and the feeling of being called was gone without a trace.
‘What’s happening here?’
Tang Wulin stared in bewilderment at his surroundings. He did not know what to do all of a sudden.
He could only sense vaguely that something happened when he was unconscious, yet he had not a clue what transpired.
After pondering awhile, Tang Wulin had an idea. He released his bloodline aura only to stare in bewilderment as four golden soul rings arose from underneath his feet and spun around his body.
Four soul rings?
How was this possible? He had only just broken through to the sixth Golden Dragon King seal recently! Not to mention the third soul ring which he achieved recently. How did he get the fourth one?
He hastily used his inner sight to look at his Golden Dragon King Seal only to discover that two layers were missing from the seal. He was horrified. There was a total of eighteen seals, but now there were only ten layers left. The first eight seals had disappeared.
Was it the Dragon God’s dragon soul? Was it his strength that helped me break through the two seals consecutively?
Tang Wulin felt at a loss whether to laugh or cry. Of course, it was a good thing that his power was elevated. Yet, he was only fifteen years old, and he had already broken eight seals. What would happen in the future?
He could still remember the pain he felt when he broke through the sixth seal. It seemed like it was only yesterday. He did not know how he broke the seventh and eighth seal, but judging by the condition of his ripped skin, the process would have been terrifying and dangerous. He attempted to contact Old Tang but he heard nothing from him. It was as if he had never existed.
In the future, he would need to face the ninth seal directly. He did not know when that would be as no one could give him an answer at the moment.
After being dumbfounded momentarily, Tang Wulin was relieved. Anyhow, it had already happened, and he could not seal off the strength which he had gained. He could not do it at all!
He would proceed without a plan then for it was better for him to work hard at elevating himself instead of regretting over past mistakes. He thought that it would be easier for him to achieve break through to the seventh seal in the future after he had absorbed so many dragon clouds and dragon souls, yet he had not expected to be at the edge of danger once again.
He had a sudden idea to unleash his Golden Dragon Claws. The Golden Dragon King scales on Tang Wulin’s body was obviously thicker and heavier after he broke through to the eighth seal. The enamel texture could only be seen clearly up close. It had an extremely peculiar refractive radiance.
He moved his claws alternately as he crawled up toward the top of the mountain valley. He was not in a rush to use the dragon pearl to leave this place. Dai Yun’er should not be in danger at the moment. If she was dead, there should be a body. On the other hand, if she was missing, then she would be sent outside when her dragon pearl was triggered.
Now that the Dragon God’s dragon soul was gone, he would need to leave this place to find out what happened.
Tang Wulin still saw a boundless stretch of dragon bones after he crawled to the surface of the Dragon Valley.
The powerful aura of the Dragon Clan still remained with the bones. Also, the sorrow that had once tainted Tang Wulin’s emotions.
Tang Wulin took a few days to get to the edge of the dragon graveyard before he crawled onto the surface. He could vaguely feel that there had been changes in the Dragon Valley, and it would be related to the disappearance of the Dragon God’s dragon soul. Yet, he could not tell what happened specifically.
Tang Wulin had already achieved many gains himself. As for the Dragon Clan’s soul bones, he was interested before he came, but he did not wish to find a soul bone from those skeletons at the moment.
Was it time to leave?
Under normal circumstances, there was nothing for him to gain anymore, so it would be time for him to leave. However, Tang Wulin felt like his heart was being weighed down by a boulder ever since he entered the dragon graveyard.
The Golden Dragon King Bloodline made him who he was today. If the legend was true, the Golden Dragon King was half of the Dragon God. If that were the case, he would be considered a part of the Dragon Clan.
He was truly feeling uneasy in his heart as he watched helplessly at the numerous Dragon Clan’s bones scattered throughout the wilderness.
Each time he was involved with martial souls and battles related to the Dragon Clan, the Golden Dragon King Bloodline was always the crucial contributor to his victory over the enemies. It was precisely this bloodline’s strength that allowed him to take one step at a time to this day. Otherwise, he would not even know whether he had the confidence to continue his cultivation.
