At this point, his gaze turned dull. “Frankly, we didn’t believe that Shrek Academy was annihilated until we sensed the aura of the Nature Child in you. The previous Nature Child was the Gold Tree in Shrek Academy. Its existence had supported Nature. Now that I think about it, it has fallen already.”
Tang Wulin could not help feeling shocked upon listening to his words. The Gold Tree had already fallen as the Damask Tulip mentioned, while his Nature Child had been formed with the help of the Gold Tree. Actually, he had already accomplished the Nature Child soul ring even before the Gold Tree had fallen!
What caused Nature to be destroyed so incisively? Without a doubt, it was the reckless act of mankind. Tang Wulin felt heaviness on his chest when he thought about it because he was a part of mankind.
“What’s going to happen if the Nature Seed doesn’t germinate and take root?” the Amorous Douluo suddenly asked.
The Damask Douluo’s expression changed. “Then, Nature will wither away and it will be an apocalypse in the human world. All living things will gradually die because of the destruction of the food chain. Douluo Continent will be on its path to complete obliteration. At the end, nothing will survive.”
These words sounded ominous such that the Shrek Seven Monsters were all shocked upon hearing this. They thought of the current situation in the continent. The soul beasts were already endangered or extinct, and mankind’s technology was developing rapidly. Almost every big city had turned into a concrete jungle while the habitats of other living creatures were being destroyed in the process. If this continued, would the world cease to exist when all the forests on the continent were gone?
No one could answer this question. Even the Damask Tulip sounded like he was exaggerating to attract attention. Yet, such an outcome seemed inevitable! Was the case of the soul beasts being an endangered species not evident?
Tang Wulin said, “So, what should I do as the Nature Child?”
The Damask Tulip shook his head in confusion. “I’ve been here ever since I was born. All my knowledge about the Nature Child is embedded in my genes and it’s all that I know. I don’t know what you should do as the Nature Child either, but I’m certain that all of us will help and protect you in the hope that, one day, you’ll be powerful enough to revive Nature.”
Tang Wulin nodded gently. A great, new responsibility had just been added to the burden on his shoulders.
The Damask Tulip’s eyes were filled with anticipation. “So, what’s your choice?”
Tang Wulin was quiet for a moment before he spoke, “Since all of you are willing to help me, are you willing to leave with me? I’m fine without any of you becoming my spirit soul. How about being my companions instead? Is that doable?”
These six people were all beasts with over a hundred-thousand year cultivation bases, so their statuses could be considered as Title Douluos. They were all almighties even without a battle armor. It would be much easier to rebuild Shrek Academy with their help in the future.
The Damask Tulip was stunned for a moment but cracked into a bitter smile soon after. “That’s impossible. We’re different from ordinary plant-type soul beasts after all. Our cultivation base is only a tenth of the actual because we relied on the Icefire Polarized Eyes’ origin energy for our cultivation. Thus, we’ll continue to weaken, and our lifespan will be shortened significantly as soon as we leave the Icefire Polarized Eyes. It won’t take long for god’s punishment and destruction to catch up with us. Our cultivation bases will be reduced by then even if we choose to become spirit souls. Hence, we can’t possibly follow you unless you’re capable of fusing with all of us as your spirit souls.”
Tang Wulin had an idea in his mind. “I can’t do it alone but I have my comrades. They can infuse their spirit souls as well. Oh right, I’m sorry that I’m being so selfish…” Tang Wulin became a little upset as it suddenly dawned upon him.
He realized that if these plant-type beasts chose to become their spirit souls, the beasts would die should something befell them in the future.
The Damask Tulip was stunned for a moment before he turned around and looked at the five beasts as if he was deep in thought.
A flurry of thoughts were communicated swiftly among the six great beasts.
Tang Wulin was about to say something when he was stopped by the Amorous Douluo’s gaze that hinted at him to wait.
A moment later, the Damask Tulip turned around once again and spoke to Tang Wulin solemnly, “The scenario which you’ve just proposed is not impossible. However, I must first verify a few things. Firstly, as the Nature Child, will you stay together with your comrades always?”
Tang Wulin looked at his comrades before speaking determinedly, “We’ll certainly be together, if not every second or minute of the way, at least for the restoration of Shrek Academy.”
The Damask Tulip spoke, “My second question. In the future, how do you plan to manage our Icefire Polarized Eyes? The Icefire Polarized Eyes is one of the three treasured lands of the highest grade in today’s world. I’m not sure whether the other two still exist, but I can certainly tell you that the Icefire Polarized Eyes will be of immense help to you if you wish to revive Nature one day.”
Tang Wulin spoke, “You mean that I can borrow the strength from here?”
The Damask Tulip spoke, “I can’t attest for the others, but with your Golden Dragon King bloodline and also as the Nature Child, you’ll certainly be able to. The status of the Dragon King has made the two Dragon King spirit souls in the Icefire Polarized Eyes follow you, while the status of the Nature Child has gained our trust in you. Hence, not only are you allowed to borrow the strength of this place, but you can even take it all away.”
Even the Amorous Douluo drew a deep breath upon listening to the Damask Tulip’s words as he looked at him absentmindedly.
Tang Wulin’s gaze was distracted for a moment before he pondered a while. Then, he spoke, “I can’t give you a definite answer for this question right now, but I can tell you that I’ll certainly revive Nature to the best of my ability so long as I’m able to do so. By then, I’ll make the decision of how to utilize the Icefire Polarized Eyes. At the same time, as a Tang Sect disciple, I’ll always abide by the promise made between the Icefire Polarized Eyes and Tang Sect and I’ll never abuse the Icefire Polarized Eyes’ strength.”
Although the Damask Tulip did not manage to get any written promise from Tang Wulin, he was smiling on the contrary. “You’ve proven yourself to be the Nature Child chosen by the Gold Tree.” Tang Wulin’s promise of not abusing their strength and doing anything rashly had put them at ease.
The Damask Tulip spoke, “This is my final question. Or perhaps, I should say it’s a condition proposed by us. We hope that when the day comes, as the Nature Child, you’re going to sow the Nature Seed in some place where you’ll plant the seeds from the six of us surrounding you.”
Tang Wulin was stunned for a moment, but he immediately answered, “As long as I understand how to sow the seed and the time has come for me to plant the Nature Seed, I’ll certainly do it.”
“That’s settled then.” The Damask Tulip walked forward with great strides as his hands began to conjure something in the space above him. Streams of radiance formed into magnificent light striations in the air while the five beasts behind him each conjured their own striations.
Their consciousness surged into Tang Wulin’s mind soon after. Those were precisely the three things he promised to do earlier.
“Please sign the contract. Once the contract is completed, the six of us will become you and your comrades’ associate spirit souls. We’ll never leave or abandon you, and we’ll go through thick and thin together eternally,” the Damask Tulip spoke in a resolute and decisive manner.
Tang Wulin was overjoyed while the rest of the four people from the Shrek Seven Monsters were jubilant. The addition of such spirit souls was equal to another few more hundred-thousand year soul rings! Such a soul spirit could at least provide them with two to three soul rings with an impressive elevation. Perhaps, their soul skills would not be particularly powerful, but the amplification effect on them would definitely be optimistic.
