Tang Wulin shook his head. How could he possibly have known since the Tang Sect’s Douluo Hall hall master had always been an enigmatic person? Even though Tang Wulin was a fighter at present, he was still considered far below the higher ranking officials of Tang Sect.
Mu Ye spoke softly, “His title is Heartless, Heartless Douluo Cao Dezhi.”
It was Tang Wulin’s first time to hear of the Tang Sect’s current Douluo Hall hall master, also the Tang Sect sect master’s name. His eyes widened in surprise instantly.
“Have you managed to associate anything yet?” Mu Ye’s eyes were flickering with radiance.
Tang Wulin shook his head in a daze. Heartless Douluo? Amorous Douluo?
Mu Ye spoke, “Life can be heartless but you may still meet people full of passion. Amorous love loathes itself for wrongly devoting love for the heartless. Legend has it that the Amorous Douluo and the Heartless Douluo… cough, cough. There’s no need for me to explain anymore, is there?”
Tang Wulin widened his eyes instantly. “So you’re saying that… both men are gay?”
“Hmm, yes!” Mu Ye raised his brows. “Don’t ever mention this to anybody other than the people in this house. This is one of Tang Sect’s biggest secrets.”
Tang Wulin felt uneasy all over. The Douluo Hall hall master, Heartless Douluo and the vice hall master, Amorous Douluo were a couple? This was…
“Teacher, is your information reliable?” Tang Wulin asked Mu Ye.
“Unreliable, of course!” Mu Ye spoke in a rational and natural manner.
Tang Wulin almost spat out a mouthful of blood from rage. “Why are you still saying that if it’s unreliable, aren’t you afraid…”
Mu Ye laughed and spoke, “I’m just pulling your leg. Moreover, it’s not a groundless rumor since it’s a legend. There’s certainly some rationale behind this. For instance, the Heartless Douluo and the Amorous Douluo have never married according to my knowledge. They were both from a generation of great talents so there are certainly many outstanding women that fancy them. Could it be that there’s none that they fancy? Also, these two men have an extremely close relationship all along. They lived wandering from place to place during the early years and performed deeds of valor for Tang Sect. Their titles are also obscure as such.”
Tang Wulin heaved a sigh of relief and said, “You’re just making groundless accusations.”
Mu Ye sniggered. “The Amorous Douluo spread love everywhere while the Heartless Douluo never had any scandals. Legend has it that the Amorous Douluo indulged in worldly pleasures to conceal his relationship with the Heartless Douluo. I don’t know much about the specific details, but they’re not considered normal anyhow.”
Tang Wulin coughed dryly. It was better for him not to join in his seniors’ conversation. He knew that Mu Ye did not have any ill intention although Mu Ye was quite vocal during the conversation. After all, Body Sect and Tang Sect were in a rivalry during the early years. Body Sect became less domineering while Tang Sect grew bigger and more powerful with the passing of time. The relationship between the two sects was already strained since earlier.
Mu Ye’s culinary skill was genuinely good. In addition to the exquisite ingredients, he concocted a table full of scrumptious food for lunch.
Zhen Hua invited the guests to take their seats. The Amorous Douluo, Zang Xin undoubtedly took the host seat since he held the highest position among the group of people.
Tang Wulin naturally sat at the most junior seat at the table. He could not help feeling that he was letting a wonderful opportunity slip by as he looked at the scrumptious meal that filled the dining table. He could not just chow down the delicacies with so many seniors around. Hence, he could only feast with his eyes.
Zhen Hua found a bottle of wine, whose packaging was aged, from some unknown place. He poured a cup for everyone including Tang Wulin as well.
“My bottle of dragon blood wine has a very long history, so I’ve always been reluctant to drink it. It was given by a dear friend back then. Today’s just the right day to savor it.”
The wine was colored amber with a faint fragrance. The fragrance was special as its scent was similar to sandalwood and even a little like eaglewood.
Tang Wulin had a cup to himself. He had never tasted wine so he was curious.
“Cheers to Senior Zang and all my good friends.” Zhen Hua raised his cup as he gave a toast.
Zang Xin smiled as he raised the cup. “Dragon blood wine, this is definitely good stuff! I haven’t tasted any for many years. Hmm, it smells like Scarlet Dragon’s dragon blood. Strong and fragrant with a thick fire element essence. It’s good for expelling ghastly evil energy and strengthening one’s blood essence. Furthermore, it’s good for nourishing one’s masculinity.”
Other than Tang Wulin, the rest of the male Title Douluos cracked into heartfelt smiles upon hearing the words ‘nourishing masculinity’.
Zhen Hua gave a thumbs up. “Senior Zang is truly an expert. Cheers.” He was the first to empty his cup.
Dragon blood wine? Tang Wulin looked curiously at the wine in the cup. He too emptied his cup as he watched everybody emptied theirs.
The dragon blood wine tasted sweet and pleasant, but it was very strong. Tang Wulin felt a surge of heat spreading across his chest instantly, followed by the feeling of a warm liquid flowing into his stomach.
All the pores on his body seemed to open up in the next instant. Two scarlet patches could be seen on his cheeks while his vision became blurred.
What a strong wine! It felt so comfortable.
He felt his body beginning to relax at present. He felt as if his bones, meridians, bloodline, and skin were rejuvenated.
His entire body felt warm and fuzzy. Soon, his skin was flushed with a layer of redness.
He looked to the Title Douluos once again and found that they appeared no different from usual.
There was no doubt that there was a disparity between their powers. The energy contained in the dragon blood wine was so strong that Tang Wulin was incapable of absorbing the energy instantly with his cultivation base.
However, all of a sudden, Tang Wulin heard a ‘clang’ sound radiating from his body. Soon after, his blood essence began to surge wildly while his entire body stiffened.
There appeared to be a problem. His ninth layer seal had just broken.
The dragon blood wine had stimulated the bloodline aura that was constantly being suppressed by Tang Wulin. It broke the Golden Dragon King’s ninth layer seal at one go when his bloodline aura arose abruptly.
Actually, Tang Wulin did not know much about the dragon blood wine. Otherwise, he would not have drunk it.
The dragon blood wine was, of course, a potent nourishing drink. Zhen Hua had served it as a polite gesture, but the drink was not meant for everyone.
Tang Wulin drank it not knowing its nourishing effect would be so potent. Although he had the Golden Dragon King bloodline, the Scarlet Dragon blood was from a true dragon as well. However, the Scarlet Dragon’s rank was inferior to the Golden Dragon King.
How could the Golden Dragon King bloodline not be infuriated by the Scarlet Dragon bloodline’s presence? Even though the dragon blood wine was consumed as a drink, the Golden Dragon King bloodline immediately became frantic. Subsequently, it was fairly easy for the Golden Dragon King bloodline aura to break through the ninth layer seal which was already precarious at one go.
Tang Wulin was blushing scarlet on his cheeks the moment before. Now, the violent energy fluctuations erupted with his body as the center. The golden scales appeared on his skin and covered his entire body within seconds.
Tang Wulin was already capable of covering his whole body with golden scales without using the Golden Dragon Body after the first eight out of the eighteen Golden Dragon King seals were broken. Currently, breaking the ninth seal would become the final polish on his scales.
The intense bloodline aura surged out while a low dragon’s roar began to radiate out of Tang Wulin’s bloodline vibration. The chair underneath him shattered instantly, and he landed onto the ground.
Tang Wulin did not worry about anything else at this moment. He controlled his body with great effort by sitting cross-legged on the ground.
Since he had been equipped with the ability to break the ninth layer seal, he could stabilize himself at the crucial moment. Otherwise, he would be lying on the ground in pain similar to his previous episodes of breaking the seals.
The group of Title Douluos were also startled. Xu Shengqun spoke in astonishment, “Brother Zhen Hua, your wine is a little too strong huh! The child…”
Zhen Hua was also surprised. His eyes were filled with confusion as he looked at Tang Wulin. “It shouldn’t be! Even though the dragon blood wine is potent, Tang Wulin should be able to withstand a small amount with his physical qualities. How did this happen? Could it be that his cultivation base has achieved calmness and is about to have a breakthrough? That’s not right either! His soul power should have just achieved rank-50 recently, so there’s still a huge gap before his next bottleneck!”
“Not his soul power.” Zang Xin walked to Tang Wulin’s side squinting his eyes. “It should be a breakthrough similar to his ability, but it’s not his soul power but the change in his bloodline aura. It’s a highly domineering energy that strangely conforms to his body completely.”
Mu Ye walked to Tang Wulin’s side as well. He understood Tang Wulin’s situation most. He knew that the bloodline in his body was the dragon type, and it was probably triggered by the dragon blood wine.
However, Zang Xin could not tell whether Tang Wulin was in any danger or not. Mu Ye, on the other hand, thought that it should not be a big concern.
Gradually, Tang Wulin became calmer, and he appeared to be fine.
Zang Xin smiled. “Alright, let’s continue our meal. Perhaps he’ll recover by the time we are done eating.”
Tang Wulin could sense the Golden Dragon King essence burgeoning in his body akin to a blow-out at present. After the last portion of his body was covered in golden dragon scales, it formed a special circulation of energy on his skin that was being continually produced.
