Chapter 867: Let’s Battle Together!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Undoubtedly, Tang Wulin had made massive gains over the past month. He had broken through the ninth layer of the Golden Dragon King Seal, separated his soul power and bloodline, advanced to Saint Craftsman and learned to control his body.
It felt more like he had unleashed everything from the past few years during that one short month.
It had already been more than four years since his visit to Star Luo Empire back then. Whether it was his experience burying dragons or training on the Demon Island afterward, it was a process of accumulating experience over the past four years for him. As they said ‘well begun is half done’, he had finally come to understand what he was capable of during his month in Heaven Dou City.
He headed straight for the inner court and returned to the small wooden shed that once belonged to Gu Yue and himself. He was even wondering if Gu Yue had already returned or at least left behind a word or two for him in the shed. It would be wonderful even if it was just a letter.
A layer of thin dust covered the inside of the wooden shed. There was nothing else besides that.
The moment Tang Wulin entered the wooden shed, his once bright eyes could not help but turn downcast. She had not returned, and there was still no sign of her.
What sort of issue had made her this heartless? She was obviously fond of him, yet she was so determined to leave.
There was also Na’er. Where had she gone?
Tang Wulin could only feel as waves of pain throbbed inside his chest.
He already knew very well that he should study at the academy. He needed more time to accumulate experiences, cultivate and elevate himself. Even so, he was feeling like he could not concentrate anymore.
Whatever the case, one would need to become a two-word battle armor master in order to graduate from the inner court. Generally, one’s soul power would need to be at rank-60 or higher when completing the armor before one could become a two-word battle armor master.
Tang Wulin clenched his fists subconsciously. He would join his companions as they strived to become two-word battle armor masters this time. After becoming a two-word battle armor master, he put all his efforts into fulfilling his wish to gain more power. He would then go searching for his parents, Na’er and Gu Yue.
He inhaled a deep breath and smelled the familiar scent of the ring as he put aside the dejection he felt in his heart. He was already twenty years old now. He had reached this point bit by bit after his parents’ departure ten years ago. He had encountered many difficulties and hardships, but he managed to overcome everything one step at a time. He was far more determined than the average person. He managed to suppress the pain in his heart by telling himself that there was still hope. He would get better for sure if he could become more powerful in the future.
Tang Wulin opened the soul communicator which he had kept off for over a month and recharged it with an infusion of a little soul power. He then dialed Ye Xinglan’s soul communicator number.
“Wulin?” Ye Xinglan’s voice came through. She sounded just as calm as she had been before.
“Hmm, it’s me. I’ve returned. Has everybody else come back as well?”
Xu Lizhi was also heard on the other end of the soul communicator, “Big brother, you’re finally back. We thought that you’d gone missing again. It’s good that you’re back. Where are you? Everyone’s back. We’ll come to you.”
Tang Wulin spoke, “I’m on Sea God’s Island. Come over.”
The Shrek Seven Monsters had the privilege of entering Sea God’s Island at their leisure, a privilege not given to the rest of the inner court students.
It did not take long after those familiar faces appeared that Tang Wulin broke into a joyous smile.
Despite parting for only a month, Tang Wulin still felt a great warmth when he saw them again. At least, he had these incredible companions by his side.
“Huh, Big brother, why do I feel like there’s something different about you?!” Xie Xie could move the fastest, so he was the first one to arrive at Tang Wulin’s side.
Tang Wulin shrugged. “What’s different then?”
Xie Xie frowned. “Something’s different. I’ll describe it with the words of my teacher. It feels different, and it’s called the sixth sense.” Speed Hall’s master Liang Xiaoyu was his teacher. Liang Xiaoyu told him that the sixth sense was extremely important as an agility-type soul master. A powerful sixth sense would allow him to have the swiftest reaction speed.
Tang Wulin chuckled and spoke, “Do you really want to know?”
Xie Xie immediately turned vigilant. He was acquainted with Tang Wulin for the longest time, and he understood him the most, so he knew that Tang Wulin was coming up with an evil idea when he was laughing in the gentlest manner.
“No!” Xie Xie shook his head without the slightest hesitation.
“I want to! I want to!” Yue Zhengyu came over with a smile on his face. His spirit seemed to have already recovered from the terrible experience on Demon Island.
Tang Wulin took a look at him then at Ye Xinglan. It seemed like they had changed quite a lot in the past month! It seemed like the issue between them was already solved.
“Big brother, don’t look at her. I’ve visited her home and then I brought her to mine as well. Both of our parents have already approved our marriage at any time. However, we plan to discuss that further when we become more powerful.”
Marriage? Tang Wulin was caught off guard when he heard the word.
Xie Xie raised his leg swiftly and kicked Yue Zhengyu’s backside. “Why are you mentioning a subject so sensitive to him? We’re all couples here so is it good to talk about this in front of Big brother? Do you know how torturous this is for him? Big brother is already pitiful for being a single dog, so how could you do that? I’d never do that right, Yuanen? Yuanen, I’m okay at any time as long as you’re willing to marry me. I can do it now too.”
“Enough, both of you!” Tang Wulin spoke bitterly, “I’ve mastered some of the skills I acquired earlier by studying them comprehensively over the past month. That’s why you may feel that something is different about me. Since everyone is present, we shall head to the trial arena on the island. Both of you shall battle against me together.”
Xie Xie and Yue Zhengyu took a glance at each other. They had doubts about the idea.
“Together? Are you certain, Big brother?”
There was no doubt that they recognized Tang Wulin’s power, but his soul power cultivation base had not elevated by much during his three years of disappearance. On the other hand, the rest of their powers had already surpassed him by a vast amount. Tang Wulin was still formidable by relying on his bloodline power, but they did not think that Tang Wulin was a worthy opponent in a match of two against one. After all, they had come a long way from what they had been before.
Everyone had undergone their training on the Demon Island separately, and it was mostly aimed at testing one’s spirit and soul. It did not affect one’s power much.
Yue Zhengyu’s lips cracked into a smile. “That’s great! Big brother, it’s settled.”
Xie Xie sniggered. “Alright, alright. We’ll try then.”
Tang Wulin frowned, as he could see them harboring ill intention in their eyes. It appeared that they were very confident!
Xu Xiaoyan covered her mouth and chuckled softly. She made a hand gesture at Tang Wulin which Tang Wulin came to understand why was Yue Zhengyu so confident.
However, was Tang Wulin not sure of himself as well? More importantly, he wished to learn the extent of his skills right now anyhow.
The Sea God’s Island trial arena was located on a hill. The arena was designed to be used by Title Douluos, so it was definitely strong enough and would not have any issues.
Tang Wulin’s group of seven walked in a line to the trial arena. Xu Lizhi excitedly turned on the trial arena’s protective shield on the side. As a food-type soul master, the rest of the squad’s internal sparring had nothing to do with him. He would watch the match together with Xu Xiaoyan from the sidelines.
Xu Xiaoyan’s control-type soul skill acted in defiance of nature, so it would not be fair for any side for her to participate.
Of course, they also felt a handicap match was unfair. Everyone was on the same level, so the higher their cultivation base, the greater the difference between them. Thus, everyone did not have high expectations of Tang Wulin including Xu Xiaoyan.
A fight of two against one could only be won if there was a real disparity. Xie Xie and Yue Zhengyu were always fighting, but their relationship was actually very close. They could work in unison extremely well too, so it should not be a problem for them to fight Tang Wulin with their assault and agility skills.
