‘So that’s how it is,’ Tang Wulin thought to himself. These plants seemed to be able to grow rapidly thanks to the Icefire Polarized Eyes, but apparently, it was not all sunshine and rainbows.
As if he could tell what Tang Wulin was pondering, the Amorous Douluo smiled and said, “It’s not what you think. I’m sure all the plants are happy to grow around Icefire Polarized Eyes. If they did not and they cultivated normally, it would be an achievement just for a plant system soul beast to be produced out of one million plants. It’s also very rare for these plant system soul beasts to cultivate intelligence. However, in this place, as long as the plant had lived long enough, almost all of them could turn into soul beasts. Isn’t that a fantastic opportunity? If this weren’t the case, do you think that they’d still be willing to stay here? Icefire Polarized Eyes is also very helpful for them in resisting divine punishment.”
It was true that Tang Wulin knowledge of plant system soul beasts was insufficient. However, after he had heard Amorous Douluo’s words, he got the idea that this land was still precious for plants.
The purple-robed man sighed softly. “Amorous Douluo, after this extortion, please don’t come back for another one thousand years. Can you do that? The wise man does not catch fish by draining the pool. There’s no need to fear that we’ll be too strong. Since mankind is this powerful, we’ll still need Tang Sect’s protection in the future. When the time comes, old-timers like us will obviously not survive. I can promise you that when we think that our life is up, we’ll be willing to turn into spirit souls and fight for the chance to become a god alongside you soul masters. However, I implore that you keep your part of the deal as well and not ask too much of the Icefire Polarized Eyes.”
Zang Xin’s eyes lit up, “Alright, I’ll promise you that. You’ll be proud of your own choices. Didn’t Eight-Pointed Frozen Grass back rise to the heavens alongside Spirit Ice Douluo back then? Maybe, one day, you’ll be able to do the same.”
The purple-robed man laughed bitterly, “I dare not harbor extravagant hopes. Come with me. I’ll take you to retrieve Velvet Skyreach Chrysanthemum first.”
As he said this, he turned around and walked in the direction of Icefire Polarized Eyes. The plants parted naturally and a path was opened up before them. Under the protection of the Amorous Douluo, they made their way to the Icefire Polarized Eyes’ side.
It was a hundred-thousand-year heaven-and-earth spiritual item! How could it not make their hearts flutter?
“Don’t let your guard down. With your strengths, it won’t be a problem for you to fight the soul beasts here, but you mustn’t underestimate your opponents. If you fail, you’ll lose the opportunity to obtain a hundred-thousand-year spirit grass. A hundred-thousand-year spirit grass won’t be able to produce a Soul Bone, but as long as it harmonizes well enough with your bodies, it can at least raise your soul power cultivation bases by three ranks. At the same time, it can raise your potential to at least that of a Hyper Douluo’s. In the future, when you’re working toward becoming a Hyper Douluo, it’ll be a vast boundless plain,” warned Zang Xin.
Tang Wulin looked at Gu Yue beside him slightly worried. He was not afraid of anything else, but there was a bit of a problem with Gu Yue’s condition. Could she still fight on her own now?
The Holy Spirit Douluo had said that a ten-thousand-year Velvet Skyreach Chrysanthemum was enough to overcome her problem. If that was not possible, a hundred-thousand-year one should work just as well.
A giant, brilliant golden chrysanthemum with fine fluffy hairs presented itself before everyone. It did not have a strong scent, and its stalk was exceptionally thick and sturdy. The giant chrysanthemum flower swayed gently and gave off a natural domineering aura.
No other plants grew within five meters of it. This was the result of the shock of its powerful plant aura.
“A hundred-thousand-years Velvet Skyreach Chrysanthemum. You can’t use any metal objects to harvest it. It should start to show resistance once it’s touched. You must defeat its transformation,” said the purple-robed man with gloomy eyes.
Tang Wulin glanced at Gu Yuena, “Gu Yue, can you fight?”
Gu Yuena was stunned, “Fight what?”
Tang Wulin replied, “When you touch this chrysanthemum after this, it might transform and hit you. Can you deal with that?”
“Hit me? Why would it hit me? Xiao Lan and Xiao Hong told me that they wanted to give me all the flowers here as gifts. This chrysanthemum is pretty. I’ll go and pluck it.”
As she said this, she hopped and skipped over to the flower. She raised her hand and touched the Velvet Skyreach Chrysanthemum.
Tang Wulin followed closely behind her. The moment any sudden changes occurred, he would attack at the first moment and protect Gu Yuena.
When Gu Yuena touched the big chrysanthemum, its golden petals suddenly shrunk away. Shortly after, a mass of golden light shone and seemed to charge toward Gu Yue.
At this very moment, two dragon roars went out at the same time. A blue and red light appeared above Velvet Skyreach Chrysanthemum almost instantly. A domineering pressure descended from above and suppressed the Velvet Skyreach Chrysanthemum until it was unable to move.
Gu Yue did not waste any effort in plucking the flower.
The pair of dragon souls immediately circled around her. Gu Yuena giggled, “Thanks, guys. I like it.”
When the six great beasts saw the Ice and Fire Dragon souls fawning over her, they could not help but stare with their mouths agape. Was this silver-haired, purple-eyed young lady’s Silver Dragon King bloodline truly that pure?
Naturally, there was no psychological burden when the pair of Ice and Fire Dragons helped Gu Yuena pluck this Velvet Skyreach Chrysanthemum. It could be said that all the heaven-and-earth spiritual items here were nurtured by them.
Gu Yuena held the big flower in her hands and returned to Tang Wulin. She lifted it as if she was showing it off, “Father, look! Isn’t it pretty?”
Tang Wulin touched his nose and looked at the purple-robed man, “How should she eat this?”
The man in purple fought back the strong urge to cover his face with his hands. “Peel off the petals and eat them one by one.”
Tang Wulin said to Gu Yuena, “This is delicious. Try it. Eat one petal at a time.”
“Really?” Gu Yuena’s eyes brightened. The new her was like a little glutton. She immediately peeled off a petal and shoved it into her own mouth.
As expected, the petal melted as soon as it entered her mouth. It turned into a sweet, refreshing liquid with a chrysanthemum’s aroma and slid down her throat.
“It’s really delicious. Father, have some too!” As she said this, she immediately peeled off a handful of petals and passed them to Tang Wulin.
“I’ll pass. Eat up. Quick,” added Tang Wulin hastily.
“No, no.” Gu Yuena pouted her red lips. “Good things must be shared with Father.”
Tang Wulin was about to reject her offer when the pair of Ice and Fire Dragon souls that circled above Gu Yuena suddenly growled. Tang Wulin vision blurred, and a handful of chrysanthemum petals were shoved into his mouth.
The Velvet Skyreach Chrysanthemum’s petals immediately liquified and slid down his throat. He could not spit them out even if he wanted to.
Gu Yuena giggled, “Good job, Little Blue, Little Red!”
Tang Wulin hardened his expression and said angrily, “Gu Yue!”
Gu Yuena stuck out her tongue. “Father, it’s my fault. I’ll eat what’s left.”
Tang Wulin’s brows were slightly furrowed. With that handful, he had eaten at least one-third of the Velvet Skyreach Chrysanthemum. He was unsure if the remaining flower had enough potency to heal Gu Yuena recover. It should be enough, right? After all, this was a hundred-thousand-year Velvet Skyreach Chrysanthemum!
After it entered his stomach, a hot sensation flowed from his belly and radiated toward his limbs and bones. Tang Wulin felt his body quickly heating up.
It was a warm feeling in the beginning, but after he took a few breaths, the wave of heat quickly become scorching. It made him stop in his tracks despite himself. He was shocked to see that his Golden Dragon Body had been unleashed without him activating it. Golden dragon scales covered him, glowing with a faint reddish hue as the hot air flowed.
“Meditate and absorb it.” A force pressed down on his shoulder and Tang Wulin sat down. Gu Yuena’s face also flushed red. It seemed as if there were ripples in her beautiful eyes. It looked incredible.
“Gu Yue, come.” Tang Wulin waved her over. Gu Yuena sat in front of him. Tang Wulin held her hands and aligned his palms with hers. At the same time, he activated his Mysterious Heaven Method soul power and slowly channeled it into Gu Yuena’s body. He urged her soul power to flow with his own.
