Chapter 915: Cold-shouldered
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The Damask Tulip was incredulous as he looked at the four young people before him. The corners of his lips twitched while the rest of the five Beasts were standing behind in disbelief.
He was rejected. The king of the Immortal Grass beyond his time, the Damask Tulip, to everyone’s surprise, had been given the cold shoulder.
Amorous Douluo almost laughed aloud. He could not help saying, “You all shouldn’t think like that. An orange spirit soul is hard to come by and can only be endowed by a Beast. Even if the soul skill is slightly weak, it’s rather high in the soul ring rank, so it’s quite efficient in intimidating others.”
Damask Tulip furiously replied, “What do you mean by ‘it’s quite efficient in intimidating others’? I’m the king of the Immortal Grass. I’m capable of identifying the special features of all heaven-and-earth spirit items, and my position allows me to command all of them as well. Every plant-type soul beast’s fighting capacity is reduced by half before me.”
“There aren’t a lot of plant-type soul masters, I think. It’s not significant in elevating one’s cultivation base anyway,” Ye Xinglan spoke earnestly.
Xie Xie chimed in. “Precisely. It’s quite useless. I’m only looking for an Immortal Grass that increases my velocity. The perfection of speed is my goal.”
Yuanen Yehui spoke, “I seek to focus on my strength or just one attribute. A spirit soul that has no actual combat effect is useless for me. Moreover, if it occupies the space of two soul rings, it will certainly reduce my fighting capacity greatly.”
Yue Zhengyu shrugged. “I wish to have a light attribute heaven-and-earth spirit item. It’s useless even if it’s nice to see. We’re skilled in disguise, so it’s easy for us to conceal an orange soul ring, but I’d be better off without it if it has no practical applications.”
“I…” The Damask Tulip truly wished to jump into the Icefire Polarized Eyes and put himself out of his misery.
They were dismissing him just like that.
“You know nothing, you little brats! Tang San, the original founder of your Tang Sect, chose my predecessor from the start! Do you think that he made the wrong choice?! My power is not as simple as it looks! I…”
Shouting in a rage, The Damask Tulip let out all his fury in an emotional outburst.
“Little Tulip, don’t be angry. I think they’re deliberately trying to annoy you,” the Blazing Apricot Cabbage consoled hastily.
“Do you want to be my spirit soul?” Yue Zhengyu’s eyes glowed brightly upon seeing her. “My martial soul is the Holy Angel. Light and fire are supposed to complement each other. If you’re willing to be my spirit soul, I’ll gladly welcome you. My Holy Flame would certainly be elevated to a brand-new level.”
The Blazing Apricot Cabbage was caught off guard for a moment before she snapped, “Don’t even think about it. I can still live for another three thousand years. Why should I risk my life for you humans? Huo Yuhao took away my essence years ago and badly damaged my cultivation base. Otherwise, I might have even broken through the second doomsday. I’m completely uninterested in mankind, so how can I possibly join all of you?”
Yue Zhengyu could not help sighing when he saw the Blazing Apricot Cabbage’s stubborn expression. He spoke with helplessness, “What we ask for we can’t get. What we don’t ask for is begging to be taken.”
The Damask Tulip almost spat out a mouthful of fresh blood in anger. ‘What do you mean by ‘begging to be taken’, huh? What do you mean that?!’
Amorous Douluo hastily tried to calm the situation, saying, “Children, all of you don’t understand the significance of an orange soul ring. It will give you a wide range of enhancements. The benefit it brings to you is far greater than what a mere a soul skill can do. Apologize to Brother Damask quickly.”
The four of them all had different expressions. They saluted the deranged Damask Tulip with great effort and considered that an apology.
“I’ll never join them no matter what. They’ve truly pissed me off!” The Damask Tulip was green with rage. He was so infuriated he almost vomited blood.
At this precise moment, a voice was heard.
“Senior, I wonder if your scent is capable of altering a person’s aura?”
The Damask Tulip turned around and glanced in the direction of the voice, just in time to see Tang Wulin, who had begun meditating the earliest, stand up and walk to his side.
Damask Tulip answered proudly, “Every ability related to smell is within my power.”
Tang Wulin arrived by his companions’ side and bowed his body ever so slightly. He spoke, “Then, I wish to receive your favor very much. I would like to invite you to become my spirit soul after my next breakthrough.”
Damask Tulip frowned. He looked at Tang Wulin and spoke, “Are you willing to do so?”
Tang Wulin spoke with full certainty, “Yes, I am.”
Damask Tulip spoke, “Yet it seems that I’m not especially compatible with your Golden Dragon King’s aura. Comparatively, as a plant-type soul beast, I prefer the power of light or water element energy. Of course, the best is still a plant-type martial soul. Otherwise, I can’t even transform into an orange soul ring if we’re not compatible enough.”
Tang Wulin immediately smiled when he heard that.
The reason that he awakened so quickly was that he ate too little of the Velvet Skyreach Chrysanthemum, and also because his body was too strong now. The Golden Dragon King’s bloodline power was altered by the Velvet Skyreach Chrysanthemum, but it had also absorbed the nutrition in the Chrysanthemum too soon after it had undergone the change. Tang Wulin’s soul power was elevated by one rank while his blood essence power was enhanced at the same time. His blood essence vortex felt like it was already about to crystallize.
Therefore, he chose the Damask Tulip for two reasons. The first being because its cultivation base was genuinely powerful. It was extremely difficult to acquire even a real one-hundred-year soul ring in the modern world, leave alone a Beast-level soul ring.
A Beast could at least provide him with two orange soul rings, which could certainly strengthen his body.
The biggest danger lurking inside his body was the nine Golden Dragon King Seals, which would eventually become an issue. He could possibly bring about his own destruction if he was not careful.
Thus, when he heard Amorous Douluo mentioning that the orange soul ring from the transformed Damask Tulip was capable of elevating one’s physical abilities when he had just awakened from his meditation earlier, he immediately inquired without the slightest hesitation. On the other hand, the ability to alter his body’s aura was naturally to allow him to better conceal his cultivation base.
Meanwhile, how could he not smile at the Damask Tulip’s question? His martial soul was not the Golden Dragon King!
Vines surged out of Tang Wulin’s body as the Bluesilver Emperor’s aura instantly erupted from him. Blue-gold vines parted behind his back and came into contact with all sorts of spirit grass in the surroundings. At once, a gentle spiritual wave bloomed from Tang Wulin’s body. In that split second, he seemed to be assimilated into the Icefire Polarized Eyes and everything else in his surroundings.
The Damask Tulip stared in astonishment as Tang Wulin unleashed the Bluesilver Emperor. His body shuddered as he sensed Tang Wulin’s aura, and he gasped aloud when his gaze fell upon Tang Wulin’s body and saw a green-gold soul ring behind his back.
“The Nature Child!”
Tang Wulin’s consciousness shifted ever so slightly and he could immediately sense the spiritual connection he had formed with all the plants and Immortal Grass in this Icefire Polarized Eyes. It was different from what he had sensed in the other forests and plants before. The plants here had extremely high spiritual intelligence, so they could transmit their friendly feelings to him directly.
Moreover, Tang Wulin was surprised to discover that his aura began to grow rapidly due to the amplification of the plants in the Icefire Polarized Eyes. The newest green-gold soul ring on his body was even exuding an aura that felt like it was on fire.
He had once experienced the effect of the green-gold soul ring and its soul skill, the Nature Child. The area which his spiritual power could cover when the soul skill was launched rivaled the most powerful radar. Moreover, he could control all the plants within the area for his own use and temporarily borrow their strength! In that state, he could even compare himself to a Title Douluo.
“Choose me. I’m willing to become your spirit soul unconditionally.” A shadow flashed past and a figure had already arrived in front of Tang Wulin.
It was one of the six Great Beasts from earlier. The man had a dark complexion and a handsome face. His entire body radiated a translucent, glossy light as he stood at the back without uttering a word. His eyes shimmered as brightly as the stars.
