Chapter 860 Amorous Douluo
After hearing Zhen Hua’s words, Tang Wulin could not help but smile bitterly. Apparently old ginger was hotter than new! He thought that he had settled everything perfectly, but he did not expect this to be a trap set by his uncle-master and the others for the Holy Spirit Cult.
Zhen Hua erased the grin on his face. “The incident is very serious now. I never expected the Holy Spirit Cult to be as bold as this. Wulin, you’ve also been away for such a long time. How was the military training the academy sent you to participate in?”
Tang Wulin felt that it was inappropriate for him to divulge too much in front of this crowd. He only said, “I learnt a lot from it. Didn’t I come to see you right away after I had returned?”
Zhen Hua nodded. “Here, let me introduce you to everyone.” As he said this, he pointed to two middle-aged women and said, “These two are from the Battle God Hall. They’re both battle gods.”
Tang Wulin was not completely clueless as to the Battle Soul Hall. There was a total of eighteen battle gods in the Hall, and they were it’s mainstays. The eighteen battle gods were all experts holding the rank of Title Douluo. They took orders directly from the Federation’s parliament. It was said that the Battle God Hall had combat strength which surpassed even the eighteen battle gods. As to what that superior combat strength was, Tang Wulin had no idea.
The two middle-aged women did not appear too extraordinary.
With Zhen Hua’s introduction, Tang Wulin learned that one of them was Tang Liyue, and the other was Zhu Xuan.
Tang Liyue’s title was Ice Moon, while Zhu Xuan’s was Morning Cat. They were truly both Title Douluos.
Zhen Hua pointed to another middle-aged man and said, “This is Heaven Saint Douluo, Xu Shengqun from the Spirit Pagoda.” While he spoke, Zhen Hua was clearly more serious than when he was introducing the two battle goddesses from Battle God Hall before this.
Tang Wulin hastily said, “Greetings, Your Eminence.”
Xu Shengqun looked at Tang Wulin with piqued interest and nodded toward him.
Zhen Hua smiled and said, “Brother Xu is one of the current four great spiriters of the Spirit Pagoda.”
Tang Wulin’s heart skipped a beat. He knew much more about the Spirit Pagoda than the Battle God Hall. Spirit Pagoda’s organization was quite compact.
When the Federation’s parliament was formed back then, they had imitated the structure of the Spirit Pagoda’s upper echelons.
Spirit Pagoda had thirty-six elders. In the beginning, the posts of the elders were held by individuals of power from all sides, but with the development of the times and the Spirit Pagoda’s increasing importance on the continent, it gradually turned into an independent body.
Even so, the Spirit Pagoda still had a council of thirty-six elders who would handle all important decisions.
There were a few superior officers above the council. This included the Spirit Pagoda Master, two vice Pagoda Masters, and four spiriters. They made up forty-two members in total, and they collectively formed the superior officers of the organization.
The Spirit Pagoda was a relatively democratic organization. Even the Pagoda Master could not do as he wished. However, the Pagoda Master had the right to veto, which was the greatest power he held. The vice Pagoda Master and spiriters had two votes each, which was only one vote less than the Pagoda Master’s three votes. Every council elder had one vote. Whenever there was an important decision to be made, it was the time for a collective vote to be done.
For the two vice Pagoda Masters and the four spiriters, they had to have made some sort of great contribution to Spirit Pagoda to be elected. However, the more important thing was that they represented Spirit Pagoda’s peak combat strength. They were masters that were at least of Hyper Douluo rank.
In other words, the cultivation base of this Heaven Saint Douluo Luo Shengqun before him had exceeded even the Body Sect’s master, Mu Ye. As for his overall combat strength…
Zhen Hua’s turned his attention to the last person. From his expression, Tang Wulin could make out some element of respect. With Zhen Hua’s status as the Divine Craftsman of the generation on the continent, it was a shock for Tang Wulin to see him displaying reverence for someone else. Just how esteemed was this person?
He was not the only one. Even Mu Ye beside him, when his gaze fell onto this last person, displayed a strange countenance. What Tang Wulin saw on his face was terror.
Without a doubt, both Zhen Hua and Mu Ye, they could shake the four seas with a stomp of their feet. It was unimaginable for someone to be able to elicit such reactions from them.
The middle-aged man had a slender build. His was handsome, with beautiful and gentle eyes, and long lashes just like Tang Wulin. Although he seemed to be in his forties, he was still filled with the worldly charisma of a middle-aged man.
Sitting there, he did not release a strong, imposing aura, nor did he attract as much attention as the others before him. However, when Tang Wulin’s gaze fell on him, he could not help but feel compelled.
Zhen Hua said, “Wulin, I should tell you, this man is somehow related to you.”
“Related to me?” said Tang Wulin in astonishment.
The middle-aged man beamed at him, revealing his white teeth. “I think I’ll introduce myself. I’m Zang Xin. We’re both from the Tang Sect.”
Zang Xin? This name was undoubtedly alien to Tang Wulin. If they had something in common, it would be that there were more strokes to the characters of their names…
Zhen Hua said, “Senior Zang is the Tang Sect Douluo Hall’s vice hall master, his Title is Amorous.”
When Zang Xin heard his own Title, he immediately coughed twice. He seemed to be embarrassed.
Zhen Hua quickly stopped, then he said awkwardly, “My apologies. I’ve forgotten that you don’t like your Title being mentioned.”
Currently, Tang Wulin was oblivious to Zang Xin’s feelings toward his own Title. He was completely astounded by the words “Douluo Hall”.
He was very familiar with the Tang Sect’s inner structure. There were three inner halls and three outer halls. He was a member of one of the three inner halls, the Battle Soul Hall.
In order, the three inner halls were the Worship Hall, the Battle Soul Hall, and the Enforcement Hall. However, there was another higher power above these three within the Tang Sect, and that was the Douluo Hall.
It was said that only the devotees of the Worship Hall could possibly be promoted to the Douluo Hall. The Douluo Hall’s master was the current Tang Sect master.
Amazingly, the person before him was the Douluo Hall’s vice hall master. That meant that there was no one above him but the sect master!
After he had gone to the Star Luo Empire, Tang Wulin knew very well that not only did the Tang Sect have much influence on the Douluo Continent, its status was even higher on Star Luo Continent.
Zhen Hua had referred to Xu Shengqun as brother Xu, but he called this Amorous Douluo Zang Xin senior Zang. The difference between these two was great. Without a doubt, this Amorous Douluo was not as young as he appeared.
“Sigh, it’s all the hall master’s fault for giving me such a Title back then. I’ll be embarrassed for life! Wulin, you don’t have to call me ‘Your Eminence’ or anything like that, and there’s also no need to call me by my Title. Just call me Old Zang.”
This Douluo Hall vice hall master had an easy, amicable tone to him. He always had a smile on his face, but Tang Wulin dared not do what he suggested. He hastily said with respect, “Tang Wulin pays the vice hall master his respects.”
Zang Xin friends grinned. “This is our first time meeting each other. Let me give you a gift.” When he said this, he raised a hand and a small object flew at Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin hastily caught it and found it to be a small round plate. The plate was exquisitely made, and there was clearly a soul circuit contained within it. It looked to be very beautiful on the outside. One side was blue while the other was red. The word “Tang” was carved onto both sides.
“Tang Sect’s Icefire Seal!”
The other five Title Douluos, including Xu Shengqun exclaimed in shock.
Even the two women, Ice Moon Douluo Tang Liyue and Morning Cat Douluo Zhu Xuan displayed admiration on their faces. They seemed to be unable to contain themselves.
Tang Sect’s Icefire Seal? Even though Tang Wulin was a Tang Sect disciple, he did not know what this was. However, he was clever. He immediately bowed deeply and, with respect, said, “Many thanks to the vice hall master for the gift.” He did not have the courage to refer to Zang Xin as Old Zang.
Zang Xin smiled. “It’s nothing. This was given to you by the hall master through me. I’m just doing a favor without troubling myself. Whatever you received is what you deserved.”
“Hall master? The hall master knows about me?” The identity of the current Tang Sect Douluo Hall’s master was unknown to most of the Title Douluo’s, leave alone Tang Wulin. Only a few of the continent’s elites knew the identity of this mysterious hall master.
Zang Xin said, “When you’re free, do come and visit the Douluo Hall, and bring the Tang Sect Icefire Seal with you. There’ll be someone there to teach you how to use it. Keep it well. If you lose it, then you’ll also lose this opportunity.”
“Understood,” Tang Wulin responded respectfully. He then went and stood behind Mu Ye and Zhen Hua. There was no doubt that everyone present here were his seniors. This was no place for him to sit down.
Zhen Hua said with a grin, “I was thinking that with senior Zang assuming personal command this time, we might just be able to catch a big fish, but I didn’t expect our plans to be unintentionally foiled by Wulin. Everyone, why don’t we have lunch first? Mu Ye, I’m afraid I’ll have to trouble you again.”
“Alright,” Mu Ye responded curtly, then glanced at Tang Wulin. “Young man, come and assist me.”
