Tang Wulin screamed aloud in his heart as he shot toward Gu Yue at once akin to an arrow.
Gu Yue who had lost her memory was acting like a child. She was so fragile, to say the least. The fine hairs on Tang Wulin’s body stood up as he moved at his maximum speed. Simultaneously, a blade of Bluesilver Emperor shot out at an even higher speed as it headed straight for Gu Yue.
Surprisingly, it was the Scarlet Fire Monkey King that was pouncing toward Tang Wulin, while the figure aiming for Gu Yue was a green bird-type soul beast. It moved swiftly like a jade green arrow. It reached Gu Yue just as Tang Wulin’s Bluesilver Emperor wound around Gu Yue’s waist. Its sharp long beak pecked at Gu Yue’s forehead.
It was an Emerald Demon Bird! Tang Wulin identified the soul beast in a split second. He was instantly terrified of the creature.
The Emerald Demon Bird was one of the most ruthless bird-type soul beasts. Its growth depended upon sucking the brains of all living creatures. Any soul beast or human could be its target although the Emerald Demon Bird was particularly fond of human brains. The soul beast moved swift as lightning and was at the top of the list in terms of speed in the entire soul beasts’ world. Fortunately, there were not a lot of them in the world.
The Emerald Demon Birds once caused a major catastrophe in the ancient world. They were still bird-type soul beasts at the time. Wherever the Emerald Demon Birds were present, all the living creatures were left with a hole in their heads without the brains. It was a terrifying scene!
Thereafter, the Emerald Demon Birds were exterminated in an operation that was carried out in the soul beasts’ world. They were singled out to be killed under the leadership of a few soul beast kings. Only a few survived the massacre. From then on, the Emerald Demon Birds’ threat to the living creatures on the continent was greatly reduced. Even when the birds appeared occasionally, they were extremely cautious and vigilant.
Human knowledge of the Emerald Demon Bird was little, only some were recorded in the ancient records. This was because the Emerald Demon Birds were abusing the continent when the soul beasts ruled over the continent.
During those times, an Emerald Demon Bird once fed on a true dragon’s brain and continued evolving to become the most terrifying killer of that era.
To avenge the murder of a dragon, the Dragon Clan which dominated the continent during the era gathered its forces to massacre the Emerald Demon Birds and annihilated them completely.
At this point, Tang Wulin held his breath when he saw the appearance of the Emerald Demon Bird.
If the bird penetrated Gu Yue’s forehead, not even ten Gu Yue’s could survive. Moreover, it was so swift.
Tang Wulin exerted all his strength to pull his Bluesilver Emperor back, while he extended his claw without the slightest hesitation. He unleashed the Golden Dragon Nirvana and smacked the region in front of Gu Yue.
The Emerald Demon Bird was only about half a meter wide. However, with its wings spread out, it measured more than a meter. Its entire body was in emerald green while its long beak was akin to the transparent tube of a needle. Its speed was so swift one could hardly discern its movements in detail.
Tang Wulin’s Golden Dragon Nirvana Claw was already in action when Gu Yue was being pulled backward. Nevertheless, the Emerald Demon Bird still managed to speed up. It was as if emerald green flames were gushing out from its tail to power its body forward at lightning speed. In no time, its long pointed beak touched Gu Yue’s brows.
“No…” Tang Wulin screamed out in agony. He felt like the blood in his body was ignited during that split second.
Gu Yue looked like she was in a daze. She was confused when her body was being pulled backward. She watched helplessly as the Emerald Demon Bird’s long beak was about to strike her.
Tang Wulin roared in agony as he watched the Emerald Demon Bird’s impending strike and the Scarlet Fire Monkey King’s attack from behind. During that split second, the entire world was frozen. In the next moment, Tang Wulin and Gu Yue’s fates seemed to have been predestined.
Tang Wulin felt his heartbreak miserably. He would never forgive himself if he allowed Gu Yue to die under the Emerald Demon Bird’s long beak. He would rather it was his brain that was being fed on than to allow Gu Yue to be harmed even a little.
A strange scene emerged at this moment. The bloodline power surging and boiling in Tang Wulin’s body formed a layer of golden-red mist around his body. The mist was suddenly absorbed by the piece of silver scale on his neck.
The surrounding space seemed to have truly frozen. The Emerald Demon Bird’s swift movements and its long beak, that had contacted Gu Yue’s forehead, stopped moving.
Gu Yue and Tang Wulin’s body became illusory in the next moment.
Piercing golden radiance bursts forth from Tang Wulin’s body. Similarly, Gu Yue’s body emanated a piercing silver radiance. The dual colors of gold and silver echoed each other while the seven-colored crystal on Tang Wulin’s wrist was also glowing with dazzling radiance. In the next moment, the gold and silver colors fused together.
A dazzling seven-colored lustre bloomed abruptly. The Emerald Demon Bird and the Scarlet Fire Monkey King began moving simultaneously. The Emerald Demon Bird appeared like an emerald green meteor as it pierced into the seven-colored radiance.
Its body immediately bounced back following the sound of a crisp “ding”. Meanwhile, the Scarlet Fire Monkey King changed its direction forcefully in mid-air and landed on a huge tree, awe-struck by the seven-colored radiance.
Not only was the radiance powerful, but it was also equipped with intelligence, something most soul beasts did not possess. It was most skilled in seeking an advantageous edge. It used the Emerald Demon Bird as an aid to guarantee its success. The outcome was totally unexpected.
At this moment, Tang Wulin felt the bloodline energy vortex in his chest suddenly spinning at an unprecedented terrifying speed while the bloodline of his entire body was undergoing peculiar changes.
The massive energy surging into his body was akin to a river flowing back to its source. He felt his entire person swelling up while the terrifying energy made him look up to the sky and let out a loud dragon’s roar.
It was the Divine Dragon Transformation. He could clearly sense that he was completing the Divine Dragon Transformation with Gu Yue in his presence. Usually, Gu Yue took the lead in the process of the Divine Dragon Transformation. His role then was to urge the Divine Dragon Transformation energy to battle.
However, it was different this time. The Divine Dragon Transformation seemed to be triggered by him. He could not withstand the unparalleled massive energy within coupled with the energy radiating from Gu Yue. Hence, it blew him up like a balloon. The meridians in Tang Wulin’s body began to be unbearable although the process had only just begun.
“Argh…” The dragon’s roar turned into a painful scream. Tang Wulin had never felt so close to death even when he was enduring the pain of breaking the Golden Dragon King’s seal. He had never thought that such a situation would happen to him.
At the same time, his agonizing scream was heard, Tang Wulin could feel the energy in his body pausing for a moment as his consciousness returned to normal.
Seven-colored scales covered his entire body which had grown a full five meters taller now. There was a distinct difference as compared to his previous transformation with Gu Yue. It seemed like their martial soul fusion skill had completed its evolution.
Tang Wulin remembered vividly that Gu Yue once mentioned that their Divine Dragon Transformation back then was the first evolution known as the Divine Dragon Awakening. Could this then be the second evolution?
A pair of enormous seven-colored dragon wings spread open behind Tang Wulin’s back. He could feel all the energy molecules in the entire forest surging wildly toward him. They were not only surging into his body but formed a cloud of energy around his body. At any time, the energy cloud was at his disposal.
The unprecedented potency and addition of this skill had made him capable of mobilizing even Gu Ye’s power for himself.
