However, all these things did not affect his outstanding qualities. Fighting against the evil soul masters was a long, arduous journey. Tang Wulin’s performance had annoyed him a little. Nevertheless, as long as he remained a fighter, he would continue to improve himself.
Yellow One, Yellow Two, and Yellow Four came over and thanked Tang Wulin.
The situation over at the factory was uncertain. No one had any intention of taking a rest, so they could only wait here patiently. They waited until the skies were almost bright when the two black fighters returned with the news.
The evil soul masters within the factory had left. Tang Wulin’s judgment was correct. The evil soul masters had used the wraiths within the factory. There was also an altar deep beneath the factory. Judging from the altar’s use, the wraiths of the factory had been exorcized. Many souls of the casualties in the terror attack had been exorcized at the altar by the evil soul masters.
Everyone had a heavy heart upon receiving the information. At the same time, the two black fighters also announced that their mission was accomplished.
For Tang Wulin’s outstanding performance throughout the mission, he was awarded half of the mission’s rewards while the other four fighters divided the remaining half among themselves.
One could not decline the rewards given despite one’s modesty. When the superior fighters had decided, the lower-ranked fighters had no choice but to obey. Also, Purple One and the others sincerely thought that Tang Wulin deserved the rewards.
The rewards of the mission were already doubled to begin with. Now that he had half of it for himself, Tang Wulin definitely reaped a more than generous reward. However, the mission had also left an indelible mark in his heart. He had seen the savageries of the Holy Spirit Cult.
Even with the Federation’s strength, there was nothing it could do to the Holy Spirit Cult. Although the attack had happened a long time ago, they were still unable to locate the main forces of the current Holy Spirit Cult’s mission. This time, they had finally gotten hold of some clues after all the trouble, but the evil soul masters still managed to get away. Indeed, it would be difficult to believe that they did not receive any outside assistance. The inner network of the Holy Spirit Cult was truly terrifying.
Purple One drove the Tang Sect’s fighting vehicle back to Shrek City. After he reported on the mission’s completion and claimed his points, the whole team was disbanded.
Tang Wulin did not accept any more missions. Instead, he headed back to the academy. He wanted to go back and retrieve his things before anything else. Then, he planned to go to Heaven Dou City where his uncle master was.
When he had accomplished the mission, he knew that the Blacksmith’s Association was not affected by the great explosion. This turned out to be a great fortune amidst misfortune.
Everything within Shrek Academy remained the same. Tang Wulin went to the inner court. He proceeded to Sea God’s Island to report himself.
He had barely reached Sea God’s Island when he was shocked to see someone waiting at the shores.
The person wore a white garment and had his hands behind his back. His handsome face had a faint coldness to it. When he saw Tang Wulin coming over, he was hardly perturbed. Instead, he waved at him.
Tang Wulin tapped the water’s surface with the tip of his toes and landed steadily on the shore. Then, he quickly bowed and paid his respects. “Elder Yun.”
The person who was waiting on the shores was none other than Shrek Academy’s current Pavilion Master, Atlas Douluo Yun Ming.
Yun Ming nodded slightly toward him. “Come with me.” He turned around and walked toward the inner parts of Sea God’s Island.
Tang Wulin hastily followed after him.
Outwardly, Yun Ming did not seem to be walking very fast. However, Tang Wulin had to run with all his might just to keep up with him.
Sea God’s Island was not that big. In no time, Tang Wulin had followed him to the Sea God Pavilion.
They entered the Sea God Pavilion, but Yun Ming did not stop in the hall. Instead, he walked up the stairs. Tang Wulin followed behind him and looked curiously at his surroundings.
He was not familiar with the Sea God Pavilion which made him highly curious regarding the place. The wooden hut was not spacious and was built leaning on the Gold Tree. It was one of the most revered places on the entire Douluo Continent!
Yun Ming brought Tang Wulin all the way up to the Sea God Pavilion’s third floor. They went into an empty room.
There was no furniture inside the room, only two rush cushions on the floor.
Yun Ming sat on the one further inside the room. He pointed at the cushion opposite. “Sit.”
Tang Wulin obeyed and sat down. He was feeling both shock and curious. ‘Could it be that Elder Yun was waiting for me by the shore?’
He was not in the least surprised that Yun Ming knew about his return. With Elder Yun’s cultivation base, he reckoned that Elder Yun would have known the instant he set foot in Shrek City.
“Do you have any news of Na’er?” asked Yun Ming with his lowered voice.
Tang Wulin shuddered inwardly, but he shook his head with a bitter smile. He did not have any news, whether it was about Na’er or Gu Yue!
Yun Ming suddenly said, “You’ve formed a soul power vortex already?”
Tang Wulin looked at him with astonishment. He then nodded. Although he could not quite comprehend Yun Ming’s rank, he was wondering about the capability of his eyes that could see a person’s soul power vortex just by looking at the person. It was as if his body could be seen through by Yun Ming’s gaze.
Yun Ming’s brows were slightly furrowed. He seemed to be pondering something.
Finally, he spoke after a long while, “Are there any problems?”
Tang Wulin shook his head. “It’s just as teacher said. The soul power vortex is normal. I, myself am unsure why the soul power vortex formed at my rank. I thought that it would only appear just before I attain rank-7.”
Yun Ming said, “In truth, the soul power vortex and ranks are unrelated. It’s only related to the density of one’s soul power. Once your soul power has reached a certain concentration level, it will increasingly resemble a solid. However, there’s no such thing as a soul power in solid form. Hence, the soul power that’s nearly solid will exist in such a unique state, and that is a vortex.”
“Simply put, if you have highly concentrated chocolate syrup, and you leave it alone in its natural state, it’ll quickly form into chunks. Or, imagine a cup of hypersaline water, crystals will quickly form and settle at the bottom of the cup. However, when you stir them constantly and maintain the stirring, they will stay in their liquid state. Such liquids can maintain their high density and are also evenly distributed.”
“It’s the same with soul power. After your soul power reaches a certain level, your body will naturally manage it. At the same time, your body will guide it to form a vortex. It is a natural process of soul power cultivation until the condensation of a soul core. The soul power vortex itself possesses a strong attractive force. It attracts the soul power within you, and it has a very powerful pull on the outer world’s origin energy. This can help you obtain twice the results with half the effort in your cultivation. It’s very rare for you to be able to form a soul power vortex with your five-ring cultivation base. Back then, I’d also formed the soul power vortex when I was at rank-59. After that, the rate of my cultivation from rank-60 to rank-70 wasn’t much different from rank-50 to rank-60.”
After hearing Yun Ming’s words, Tang Wulin had newfound knowledge about the soul power vortex. Also, he was astonished that the Sea God Pavilion’s Pavilion Master Elder Yun had imparted his knowledge to him. ‘He formed his soul power vortex at rank-59? Does this mean that I’m going to surpass him in this aspect?’
Although he was startled, Tang Wulin remembered everything Yun Ming said. These were the teachings of a person who was regarded as the best under the heavens! The majority of soul masters would never have such a chance in their lifetimes.
When Yun Ming saw that Tang Wulin was listening keenly, he continued, “From now on, all you have to do is just cultivate conventionally. With the soul power vortex as your foundation, your cultivation base will increase very quickly. If you have any problems, you can come and ask me in the Sea God Pavilion.”
“Understood. Thank you, Elder Yun,” said Tang Wulin in reverence.
Yun Ming looked at him with a slightly complicated gaze, “I’m a very emotional person. Because of what happened to Na’er, that’s why I don’t like you.”
Tang Wulin was stunned, but he could only respond with a bitter smile. Regarding Na’er, his heart was also filled with regret.
Yun Ming continued, “When I take the academy into consideration, I know I shouldn’t feel that way. This time, the effects of your military training on Demon Island were very good. I received word from them that your results even surpassed most of your seniors.”
Tang Wulin made no reply. ‘Is he praising me?’
Yun Ming paused as if he was pondering over something. However, it seemed like he did not have a conclusion. He waved his hand and said, “You may leave.”
“Alright.” Tang Wulin stood up hastily. After bowing to Yun Ming once again, he turned around and left.
As he looked at Tang Wulin receding, Yun Ming sighed softly and massaged his brows.
A small door on the side of the room opened. The Holy Spirit Douluo Yali walked out from within. She moved behind Yun Ming and kneaded his shoulders lightly.
“You still can’t make up your mind? This child is truly outstanding. With his temperament and abilities, he can surely shoulder great responsibilities.”
Yun Ming shook his head. “I still don’t like him. We’ll see.”
Yali sighed softly. “Don’t you push him too far away!”
