Zang Xin’s lips cracked into a faint smile as he watched Mu Ye take Tang Wulin into the kitchen. “Someone from the Body Sect finally got wise. He’s very lucky as well.”
Zhen Hua laughed as he said, “I’m also very surprised. I didn’t expect the Tang Sect to value Tang Wulin that much. Frankly, I, too, think highly of this child. I heard from Mu Chen that he’s already close to the rank of Saint Craftsman already. I think that he’s going to consult me on information about that soon.”
“Saint Craftsman? How old is he?” Xu Shengqun spoke in astonishment.
Zhen Hua boastfully replied, “Nature has greatly blessed the boy.
There are no blacksmiths with the potential for Heavenly Refinement on the continent, except him.”
What was the significance of Heavenly Refinement? Everybody else could see that Zhen Hua was saying this because he was too shy to brag about himself.
Tang Liyue and Zhu Xue matched each others’ gaze. Radiance flashed in the depths of the two women’s eyes.
Zang Xin always seemed to be beaming. “The Tang Sect values him more than any of you can imagine. Hence, everyone please don’t speculate about him.”
His words were of course not meant for Zhen Hua. The Blacksmith’s Association and soul masters did not have any conflict but instead complemented each other. However, the Spirit Pagoda and the Battle Soul Hall’s relationship was quite different.
Tang Liyue spoke with a grin on her face, “Senior Zang, you can’t protect your boy too much! Those of us from the War God Hall have never discriminated against him. He’s a Tang Sect disciple, but he can join the War God Hall as well to serve the Federation.”
Zang Xin remained smiling but he declined to comment.
Xu Shengqun was about to say something, but he thought better of it after he caught a glimpse of the cheery Amorous Duoluo.
He dared not overstep his boundaries in this man’s presence, even though he himself was one of the six highest ranking members of the Spirit Pagoda. Amorous Douluo may be the vice hall master of Douluo Hall, but it was very clear that this man was not that different from the Douluo Hall’s master. He was also a man standing at the pinnacle of the world.
Spirit Pagoda’s master once said that the opponent he was most unwilling to confront on the continent was not Shrek Academy’s Atlas Douluo, but the two great hall masters of the Tang Sect. It showed that his estimation of these two hall masters was exceedingly high.
In the kitchen, Mu Ye’s expression seemed to have relaxed slightly as soon as he closed the door. He suddenly raised his hand and patted Tang Wulin on the shoulder.
Tang Wulin was aware of what Mu Ye was about to do, so, of course, he would not dodge. He allowed Mu Ye’s palm to smack his shoulder.
He felt his shoulder became heavier as a tremendous force burst out instantly.
Tang Wulin had not met Mu Ye for an even longer time than Zhen Hua. He had never seen his teacher ever since he returned from the Star Luo Continent.
Mu Yue was slightly stunned for a moment. He had already considered the fact that Tang Wulin’s strength would grow, which was why he was applying so much pressure on his shoulder. Even so, he did not at all expect that Tang Wulin would not have any reaction to his slap.
Tang Wulin sniggered.
Mu Ye raised his brows as his lips cracked into a spurious smile. The palm pressing against Tang Wulin’s shoulder abruptly exerted more strength.
Tang Wulin washed the potatoes. “Teacher, shall I peel the skin?”
The corners of Mu Ye’s mouth twitched as his heart filled with shock. Even a Soul Sage strength-type soul master would certainly fail to withstand the force he had just applied, yet his disciple was unbothered. How was this possible?
He did not continue because he could already see the floorboard underneath Tang Wulin’s feet was cracking. Perhaps Tang Wulin would be able to endure an even greater amount, but the floorboard would not withstand anymore.
“Little brat, what have you eaten? How did your strength increase so much?”
Tang Wulin shrugged. “Teacher, that’s a secret. However, my strength has already increased one hundred thousand kilograms since last time. Moreover, I can feel that it’s still growing.”
As the Body Sect’s master, Mu Ye had always been filled with pride about his body’s strength. Even though he had yet to break through to Hyper Douluo level, he was always under the assumption that his physical power was on the same level as a Limit Douluo. However, he found himself astonished when he witnessed his disciple with less than a five-ringed cultivation base. Going by Tang Wulin’s development speed, he was afraid that his disciple’s strength could exceed his own.
“My boy, you’re impressive. I’ll teach you the Body Sect’s Body Refining Method later. With strength as great as yours, you must learn how to transfer it.”
“Transfer?” Tang Wulin looked at Mu Ye in surprise.
Mu Ye spoke flatly, “You have one hundred thousand kilograms worth of strength, so how much can you wield without getting near your opponent?”
Tang Wulin answered, “I’d need to combine it with a throwing weapon, or with my martial soul or soul skill in order to use it more effectively.”
Mu Ye shook his head. “Strength is a portion of energy as well. Your bloodline soul skill or your martial soul skill are not conflicting it. It’s like you have a buried treasure but don’t know how to dig right now. On the other hand, our Body Sect’s Body Refining Method is just what you need to excavate your treasure. However, you must also not to be overly obsessed with your strength because soul power cultivation is still the foundation. Only with great soul power will you be able to cultivate twice the result with half the effort. Your teacher was too absorbed in his strength back in those years, besides focusing too much attention to studying mecha afterward. Because of this, I couldn’t even break through to Hyper Douluo rank up till now.”
“Yes.” Tang Wulin nodded sincerely. Mu Ye’s words came from the bottom of his heart. Tang Wulin understood how much the situation affected him just by looking at his expression.
In reality, Mu Ye was the Body Sect’s prodigy of his generation in his youth. He was reputed to be the one most likely to reach the rank of his predecessor. However, it became troublesome for his teacher to educate him, as he soon exceeded his teacher’s power. In addition, he had so many hobbies that he missed the best period to cultivate his soul power. Otherwise, he might have become a Limit Douluo given his natural abilities.
Mu Ye was preparing the ingredients when he was said, “Have you ever met that Amorous Douluo before?”
Tang Wulin shook his head.
Mu Ye spoke, “The Tang Sect has truly left me speechless. I didn’t expect that they’d value you so highly. Build a good relationship with these few people if you have the opportunity. They have exceedingly high positions within the Tang Sect. In reality, their words were more influential than the Douluo Hall’s master on many occasions. The Tang Sect Icefire Seal given by him is an extremely lucky item, so you must hold on to it tightly.”
Tang Wulin asked in curiosity, “Teacher, what’s the Icefire Seal actually? Why is everybody so shocked by it?”
Mu Ye spoke with a deep voice, “The Tang Sect has a history that is much longer than our Body Sect. As far back as when the sect’s first ancestor, Tang San, dominated the continent, the Tang Sect discovered a land of plenty. More precisely, it was discovered by the Thousand Hands Douluo Tang San. This land was well-hidden, and it was said to be heavily guarded by obstacles and poisons. However, the inside was birthing many of the finest heaven-and-earth treasures. I’m not especially familiar with the real situation, but you only need to know that these two great talents, Tang San and Huo Yuhao benefited from this treasured land.”
Tang Wulin was even more curious about the Icefire Seal when he heard this. However, it was quite apparent that Mu Ye did not understand the true state of affairs either.
Mu Ye spoke, “Use the Tang Sect Icefire Seal as soon as you can after you’ve returned. I believe that Amorous Douluo’s guidance will never lead you astray. Oh, right. Don’t get too close to him.”
Tang Wulin was slightly confused for Mu Ye was just advising him to befriend Amorous Douluo, yet why did he ask him not to get to close to the man one minute later?
Mu Ye’s gaze appeared slightly odd. A wave of gentle energy was radiating from his body as he surrounded Tang Wulin and himself and isolated everything on the outside.
“Do you know what the Title of the Tang Sect’s Douluo Hall’s current hall master is?” Mu Ye asked.
