Gu Yue spoke curiously, “Little Emerald, don’t be afraid. Tell us quick, who is the Soul Beast King?”
The Emerald Demon Bird raised its head to look at her, blinked its red eyes then lowered its head once again. This time, it refused to say anything further.
Meanwhile, Tang Wulin sensed a gush of formless pressure radiating from all directions. His spiritual power that spread out through the plants was constricted all of a sudden.
What was that…
At the same time, Tang Wulin turned pale with fear. He hastily moved to Gu Yue’s side and grabbed her hand.
The Emerald Demon Bird raised its head with a look of terror revealed in its eyes. The sky turned gloomy.
The bright and warm sunlight vanished and in its place was a stretch of darkness. Massive pressure descended from the sky which invoked an indescribable fear. When Tang Wulin discovered that the origin energy and energy of the other attributes in the air were disappearing quickly, he was gripped with a sense of fear and panic. There was only the darkness element that remained.
“Roar…” A deep roar sounded, rustling the entire forest.
“Who is it who dares to slaughter soul beasts? Who is it who dares to invade Star Dou?” The voice echoed throughout the forest. Despite Tang Wulin’s efforts to communicate with the surrounding plants, it was silent all around.
Tang Wulin felt his heart sink. Such a terrifying overbearingness could only come from a soul beast with a hundred-thousand-year cultivation base that was equal to mankind’s Title Douluo. It was remarkably the most powerful soul beast Tang Wulin had ever met.
It was the colossal octopus Tang Wulin encountered in the sea when he was heading to Star Luo Empire that could remotely be compared to it.
The sky was completely pitch black with purple light flickering faintly. The surrounding air had a feel of ghastliness reflecting the presence of the dense darkness element. It was as if there were countless bitter shrills echoing at the same time. The great forest that was initially filled with a life source had turned into a haunted region within seconds.
The surroundings became incredibly quiet that even the sound of an insect’s chirp was gone.
Tang Wulin found it difficult to breathe. His soul power and blood essence power were almost pressured to freezing point.
Even though he was well aware that his cultivation base meant nothing when he was confronting a true powerhouse, he was still unwilling to concede in such a situation.
He was not afraid of death, neither did he have a wish to die. He still had many things to do. Besides, he had the heavy responsibility of reviving Shrek Academy.
Yet, could he survive when he was confronted by such a formidable enemy? He could not do it even if he had Gu Yue together to launch the Divine Dragon Transformation.
Moreover, they had just launched the Divine Dragon Transformation earlier so they could not possibly launch it again within a short period of time.
He turned his head to the side and looked at Gu Yue. She seemed to be frightened also as she hid by Tang Wulin’s side in her ghastly pale look. She was grabbing his arm tightly.
Tang Wulin felt pitiful in his heart. Would they finally end up vowing to die on the same day together in the soul beast’s forest?
No, absolutely not!
He was going to protect her with his life even if he was to exhaust the last drop of his blood.
At this point, Tang Wulin’s aura that was initially suppressed began to reassert itself. His indomitable will ignited his bloodline once again.
His bloodline fluctuation that was almost frozen was invigorated once again while his soul power was also brimming with vitality. A misty golden halo was unleashed from his body.
“I’ll never allow anyone to hurt you before I die.” Tang Wulin took a deep breath as his one-word battle armor turned over and covered his entire body rapidly. He swiped his right hand on his forehead and conjured the Golden Dragon Spear in his palm. His power was now elevating wildly accompanied by the outburst of his bloodline.
“Huh!” A puzzled voice was heard in the distance.
Meanwhile, Tang Wulin noticed a path opening in the great forest before him. The path was dark purple so he could only see vaguely with the light from the dark purple radiance.
A figure walked out slowly from the other end of the path. Her entire body was covered in purple-black scales. She had a slender figure with perfect, round breasts and long legs. The upper part of her chest was bared to reveal her snowy white skin and a deep cleavage between her breasts. Her long purple-black hair hung down loosely behind her back and away from her body even without the wind blowing. Her exquisite face was exceedingly charming with her deep purple eyes. Her lips, on the other hand, were a bright purple. An ink-black scale on her forehead rippled with layers of purple radiance streaming forth to the top of her head.
Tang Wulin drew in a cold breath upon seeing her appearance. Initially, he assumed her to be a hundred-thousand-year soul beast, but now, he was absolutely sure that the person before him was at the peak of its existence in the soul beasts’ world with a cultivation base of over two hundred thousand years. It was a beast with no equal!
He had gathered immense knowledge about the beasts when he was studying in Shrek Academy. At the time, Tang Wulin was really interested, so he did some research of his own.
It was considered achieving the limit when a soul beast could cultivate to a hundred-thousand-year cultivation base. By then, there were only two ways the soul beast could continue to elevate itself. The first method was to cultivate into a human form and remove its beast skeleton in order to possess mankind’s power of comprehension and higher intelligence. Then, it could become a God once it had broken through the limits of this world.
However, there seemed to be a rule that a soul beast could never become a God, just like the story Gu Yue once told.
The majority of the soul beasts would not choose this path. After all, a human’s age could never exceed two hundred years no matter how powerful that person was. If the soul beast failed the breakthrough to become a God, then, just like the humans, it would just become a part of history.
The other path was to break through its own hundred-thousand-year bottleneck. This stage involved overcoming heaven’s punishment. The punishment would be a hundred thousand years later. The soul beast’s body and spirit would perish together should the soul beast fail to break through.
For those soul beasts who were confident enough, they would choose the latter path. If they were successful, they would then live another hundred thousand years following the breakthrough.
At the same time, the soul beast’s power would increase tremendously once it had broken through the bottleneck to become a beast!
If a hundred-thousand-year soul beast was equal to a Title Douluo, then a beast would be equal to a Hyper Douluo. A beast with a longer cultivation age and more successful breakthroughs at the bottleneck would have even more terrifying power.
There was once a beast with over a million-year cultivation base mentioned in the legends which broke through the bottleneck ten times!
On the other hand, there were beasts that were capable of transforming into the human form without choosing the path of cultivating into a human.
The person, before his eyes, who was exuding a ferocious aura was undoubtedly a soul beast. She was also capable of transforming into a human and appeared perfect. She had to be a beast with at least two hundred thousand years of cultivation base which would be equal to mankind’s Hyper Douluo.
On the other hand, Tang Wulin was only equal to a seven-ring soul beast even with his one-word battle armor. Furthermore, he was just a seven-ring Soul Sage without a martial soul avatar. No matter how gifted he was, he could not possibly fight the person before him albeit the person was a dragon-type soul beast.
The woman was getting closer. The dense purple radiance in her eyes was flowing outward to her sides. The closer she got, the stronger the pressure exerted on Tang Wulin. The golden light mist emitted from Tang Wulin’s body grew more expansive.
Tang Wulin was aware that the pressure was already close to the limit of his endurance. It was the strength of his indomitable willpower that supported the bloodline into continuously discharging the powerful aura to withstand the opponent’s pressure.
“Tiny little human, you have the nerve to come to my Great Star Dou forest and slaughter my soul beasts. How dare you!” warned the purple-haired woman. She stopped walking abruptly when she was about fifty meters away from Tang Wulin.
