A faint smile showed on Yun Ming’s face. “I’m not worried about that. He isn’t only one of the academy’s Shrek Seven Monsters, he’s also a Tang Sect fighter at the same time. My actions this time have violated the rules set by the academy. Just think of it as putting him through additional trials. Arrange a meeting to inform the others that we’ll consider Tang Wulin as a prospective Sea God Pavilion resident elder. But, this information mustn’t reach the outsiders, including Tang Wulin himself.”
Yun Ming stood up and held his wife’s hand. “Actually, I’m looking forward to the miracles that he might create in the future. The previous Sea God Pavilion Masters had to endure countless cycles of hardship before they were finally able to shoulder the heavy responsibility.”
Yali smiled. “I like this child very much. I believe he can do it. According to the regulations set by the academy, a person who passes all the trials on Demon Island is qualified to become a Sea God Pavilion resident elder. If the person manages to break the record as well, then the person will be the next Sea God Pavilion Master. His results are obvious to all.”
Yun Ming smiled. “I have my plans.”
Tang Wulin exited the Sea God Pavilion, but he still felt puzzled. Did the Sea God Pavilion Master, Elder Yun come to fetch him by the shore just to give him a few tips on the cultivation method of his soul power vortex? He could feel that Yun Ming had something to say but refrained himself. Nonetheless, he did not know what it was that Yun Ming wanted to say.
In any case, Elder Yun seemed to have accepted him to some degree. This was good news.
Tang Wulin returned home and carried everything which he had stored with him. Then, he went to the wooden house where Scarlet Dragon Douluo Zhuo Shi lived.
Zhuo Shi was basking in the yard. When one had achieved one’s cultivation base, there was no longer a need to cultivate all the time. More time was spent on understanding the world. Instant enlightenment was the insight needed for a breakthrough.
When Zhuo Shi saw him, he was not shocked in the least. He smiled and asked, “Did you meet the Pavilion Master?”
Tang Wulin answered curiously, “You knew?”
Zhuo Shi said with a smile. “It’s only natural that he finds you. Come and sit by your grandteacher’s side,” he said as he pointed at the seat beside him.
Tang Wulin went beside Zhuo Shi and sat down. Zhuo Shi said, “Tell me about your experiences during this trip.” After he finished, he closed his eyes.
There was nothing that Tang Wulin needed to hide from his grandteacher. He then recounted the encounters he had together with his comrades. From the incident on the soul express train fighting powerful evil soul masters to their arrival in the Northsea City and their horrendous experiences on the Demon Island, he narrated the whole story in detail. The only thing he left out was the Tang Sect fighters’ mission in which he had participated after his military training.
Zhuo Shi listened to him with his eyes closed. He only opened his eyes after Tang Wulin had finished his narration.
Zhuo Shi sighed softly and said, “The peace in the continent seems to be coming to its end. My generation is old. The responsibility of transforming and protecting the continent lies on the young shoulders of your generation.”
Tang Wulin looked at him with shock. “Grandteacher, is it really that serious?”
Zhuo Shi lowered his voice and said, “It’s more serious than you imagine. There are some problems among the higher-ups of the Federation. Some of them are openly infighting themselves within the Federation. On the surface, the Federation is still calm and peaceful, but in truth, the infighting is quite serious. The incident of Heaven Dou City this time is a result of the infighting. As a Federation congressman, Mo Wu was a potential successor, but he died in the Holy Spirit Cult’s surprise attack. This escalated the conflict further among the members of the Congress. Although we can’t be sure which congressman is affiliated to the Holy Spirit Cult, there’s no doubt there’s an insider among the congressmen who protects them. Otherwise, there’s no way that the Holy Spirit Cult can hide while the Federation is powerless to act against a sect of the evil soul masters.”
“It seems like we’ll be having troubled times soon. The Federation isn’t the only one facing problems. I’ve heard that there’s also an inner conflict in Spirit Pagoda. Even on Star Luo Empire’s side, the Green Skeleton Rebellion seemed to have received some form of support. Their war with the Star Luo Empire’s officials is escalating. It seems that the entire Douluo Star is going through troubled times.”
Tang Wulin’s brain was in overdrive thinking about it. However, he was as puzzled as ever. After all, he had only been a mere student of Shrek Academy. He was not too familiar with the continent’s situation. He worked very hard and focused mainly on his cultivation.
Zhuo Shi said, “There’s no need for you to trouble yourself with this matter yet. You’ll at least have to wait after your graduation from the inner court before you’re involved in any of this. But, you must remember, as the leader of this generation’s Shrek Seven Monsters, there’s no way you can evade this responsibility. Shrek Academy has always been neutral, but that’s during peaceful times. Once there’s a threat that can cause upheavals on the continent and endanger the lives of common people, the academy will take precautionary actions. Do you understand what I’m trying to say?”
Tang Wulin nodded slightly. Without a doubt, Shrek Academy’s heritage had for tens of thousands of years been deeply ingrained on Douluo Continent. The outstanding graduates of the academy were everywhere holding various influential posts on the continent. Once the academy made a clarion call, the power it would amass was formidable.
Zhuo Shi raised a hand and pressed down on Tang Wulin’s shoulder. “In the future, the pressure you’ll be under will only increase. You’ll then truly understand the benefits you’ve gained from your trip to the Demon Island. I only hope that the greater the pressure, the more motivated you will be. Come, tell me about the problems you faced while you were cultivating including the Golden Dragon Nine Moves.”
Tang Wulin stayed in Zhuo Shi’s wooden house until evening came. After Zhuo Shi’s instructions, he overcame all the problems that had surfaced recently.
He stayed on Sea God’s Island that night.
He stayed in the wooden house Gu Yue left him. He sat on the edge of the bed and looked at the clear and bright moonlight outside the window. Her beautiful face surfaced in his mind. He seemed to feel her presence.
The silver dragon scale on his chest reflected the gentle moonlight’s glow. He was sleepless during the night.
The next day, Tang Wulin left the academy early in the morning. He had mentioned to Zhuo Shi that he would be in Heaven Dou City for a month. He would go there and learn to forge from the Divine Craftsman, Zhen Hua.
His forging level had reached a crucial bottleneck currently. Once he could accomplish Soul Refinement, he would enter a new realm in the field of forging. As the youngest rank-6 blacksmith of the current forging world, once he achieved a breakthrough, he would have limitless possibilities in terms of forging.
After he exited the academy, Tang Wulin did not go to the soul express train station to board the soul train. He was genuinely afraid of soul trains now, especially the route between Shrek City and Heaven Dou City. He had lost count of the incidents he had encountered on this route alone. For the safety of the passengers and himself, he decided that it was better not to board the soul train.
He arrived at the Battle Soul Hall of Tang Sect. Tang Wulin proceeded to redeem a Tang Sect fighter vehicle with his points.
After his prior experience riding a fighter vehicle, Tang Wulin had taken a liking to this mode of transportation. Its high speed aside, it was very stable. The only shortcoming was that it had no special features. Even so, the equipment on the vehicle far surpassed other ordinary cars.
As for his mecha, he had retrieved it already. Now, he only needed to wait for it to be upgraded. Mechas and cars were different after all. The Federation had strict regulations on mechas, especially during an emergency.
Tang Wulin had a lot of fighter points. He still had a large balance after redeeming a Tang Sect fighter vehicle. He stored the fighter vehicle in his storage ring and only released it after he was out the door.
Unlike the fighter vehicle he rode the other day, he had redeemed one with three rows of seats. It was a Tang Sect fighter vehicle that could carry eight passengers at maximum capacity. Its speed was not as fast as the previous one, but it had better cross-country capabilities.
There were seven members among the Shrek Seven Monsters. The extra seat was naturally kept for her
