Chapter 918: The Icefire Alliance
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
It was the era of endangered soul beasts, so one could imagine how difficult it was to acquire a one-hundred-thousand-year soul ring. This was simply an unprecedented opportunity for everyone.
Under Amorous Douluo’s guidance, Tang Wulin bit his finger and squeezed out a drop of blood while reciting the oath to sign a contract with the Damask Tulip and the rest of the six Beasts.
Later generations labeled this contract ‘the Icefire Alliance’. It had a profound influence on Shrek Academy’s future and even the history of the entire continent.
The contract was completed. The six Beasts’ faces were filled with excitement. They did not seem to be bothered by the fact that they were becoming spirit souls soon.
The Damask Tulip spoke with a smile on his face, “Your Majesty, you can make your choice now.”
“Your Majesty?” Tang Wulin was stunned.
The Blazing Apricot Cabbage was also smiling as she spoke, “Certainly. The Nature Child is nature’s willpower. You’re the ruler of all plants so naturally, we’re addressing you as such. Now, whom do you wish to choose from among us?”
Tang Wulin considered for a moment before saying, “I choose senior Damask Tulip.”
He made the decision so quickly that the Six Great Beasts were rather surprised, including the Damask Tulip himself.
The Damask Tulip could not help asking out of curiosity, “Your Majesty, how did you come the decision to choose me so quickly?”
Tang Wulin spoke sincerely, “Senior is capable of more than just providing me with an orange soul ring and endless intelligence. The orange soul ring will be very important in augmenting my physical capabilities, so I can have a stronger body as I continue to elevate the Golden Dragon King Bloodline in the future. Additionally, you’re also capable of evading poisons and commanding plant life. You’re very compatible with the skills of my Nature Child and also my Bluesilver Emperor so I naturally chose you.”
The remaining five Beasts were disappointed, but they did not say anything else. Tang Wulin’s status in their hearts was already completely different after the contract was signed.
The Damask Tulip was beaming with joy. “Your Majesty, for a human, you have magnificent taste! I can see that there is still some disparity between Your Majesty’s cultivation base and rank-60, so I shall attach myself to your body and await our fusion. Your Nature Child aura is also beneficial for me. Everyone is leaving the Icefire Polarized Eyes for a short period of time, so I don’t think that we’ll deteriorate too quickly. Please follow me, Your Majesty.”
As he spoke, the Damask Tulip turned around and walked toward the Icefire Polarized Eyes’ lakes.
The Damask Tulip stopped when they arrived in front of a large purple flower by the lakeside. They had first seen this flower as they were descending from the sky when they first arrived. It was the largest flower within the entire Icefire Polarized Eyes.
The Damask Tulip smiled and spoke, “This is my original body. From today onward, I’m yours, Your Majesty.” He raised his hand and touched the large Damask Tulip as he spoke. The large flower closed rapidly and transformed into a flower bud before it slowly rose and flew toward Tang Wulin.
The enormous Damask Tulip shrank rapidly as it flew to Tang Wulin, while Tang Wulin’s Bluesilver Emperor was moving of its own accord after being guided by the flower. There was a flash of light from the green-gold soul ring. Tang Wulin was struck motionless as a golden shadow immediately appeared on his forehead.
It had the form of a seed. The Damask Tulip was overjoyed. He waved his right hand to guide the tiny, little flower bud from his original body to merge into the area between Tang Wulin’s brows.
Tang Wulin felt a gush of fragrance radiate through his entire body as an incredibly comfortable sensation sweep over him.
“The Nature Seed is located within Your Majesty’s soul sea. It’s my honor to be able to accompany the Nature Seed for the time being.” The Damask Tulip had already gone down on one knee as he spoke. His eyes were filled with happiness.
“Your Majesty, your companions have yet to arrive at the bottleneck of a breakthrough at the moment. Why don’t all of us incubate ourselves in your Nature Seed temporarily? We could greatly elevate ourselves as long as we have adequate time to incubate and grow to orange spirit soul rank. This will be very helpful to Your Majesty’s friends as well.” The Blazing Apricot Cabbage looked at Tang Wulin with great yearning.
Yes, other than Xu Lizhi, the rest of Tang Wulin’s companions would not be able to break through to the next level yet.
Tang Wulin spoke, “That will not be an issue. I think that it’s possible that my companion who’s absorbing the Origin Energy Immortal Grass right now is about to have a breakthrough soon.”
The Damask Tulip spoke, “My apologies, Your Majesty. We had some slight reservations when we were helping you and your companions in choosing Immortal Grass. There’s something that we have yet to clarify. The Origin Energy Immortal Grass is genuinely one of the highest grades of Immortal Grass available, but it is highly exclusive. It’s possible that friend of yours can’t fuse with any other plant-type martial souls in the future anymore after he was infused with one that had origin energy. Thus, none of us is suitable for him. He’ll need another one with origin energy to elevate his soul power’s strength on a large scale. His soul power will at least exceed the others of the same rank by forty percent. Moreover, the Origin Energy Immortal Grass can actually transform into his sixth soul ring as long as it accepts him. We’ll have to see if the Origin Energy Immortal Grass approves of him during the fusion process and is willing to leave behind its foundation to become his spirit soul.”
“I had certainly been unwilling before, but how can I refuse in the presence of the Nature Child?” A stream of white light arose from the spot where the Origin Energy Immortal Grass had been plucked and transformed into a white figure. Much to Tang Wulin’s surprise, it took the form of a chubby, young man that appeared rather similar to Xu Lizhi.
“Is that form changing? You…” The Damask Tulip looked at him in astonishment.
The Origin Energy Immortal Grass sounded a little annoyed as he explained, “My origin energy lineage is different from all of yours. I’m able to take a human form without the need to endure divine punishment after one hundred thousand years, and I’ll only face my first god’s punishment when I reach one hundred and fifty thousand years. I can’t bear the noise of your constant chattering every day, so I didn’t reveal my human figure. Since the Nature Child descended upon us today I didn’t have a choice but to allow my original body to be absorbed by the little fat boy. What else can I say? Will Your Majesty please take my seed and count me in as one of your guardians when you’re sowing the Nature Seed in the future?”
A perfectly round, white seed flew out from his hand and arrived before Tang Wulin as he spoke.
Tang Wulin did not even need to exercise control as a gush of suction force was naturally produced from his forehead that drew the Origin Energy Immortal Grass’ seed into the Nature Seed.
The Origin Energy Immortal Grass saluted to Tang Wulin respectfully before merrily leaping into the sky and heading straight for Xu Lizhi. At the exact moment that he landed on Xu Lizhi, an aura burst out from Xu Lizhi’s body. It was apparent that he had broken through to a new realm.
A red soul ring appeared around his body after he had fused with the Origin Energy Immortal Grass. A thread of golden lines adorned the top of red soul ring. This could only be bestowed by a soul beast with a cultivation base of over one hundred thousand years.
Meanwhile, the Origin Energy Immortal Grass’ phantom shadow emerged and swayed behind his back. There was no doubt that Xu Lizhi’s sixth soul skill would be so powerful such that he would shock everyone with his buns as a food-type soul master.
His soul ring could not possibly be orange-gold, but he was not at a loss compared to his companions. This was because Ye Xinglan, Yuanen Yehui, Xie Xie and Yue Zhengyu of Shrek Seven Monsters had already attained six soul rings. There was only Xu Xiaoyan and Tang Wulin who were still at a five-ringed cultivation base.
Xu Lizhi’s sixth soul ring was already at one hundred thousand years. As long as he was willing, the Origin Energy Immortal Grass could bestow him with three or even four one-hundred-thousand-year soul rings. In other words, he would have one more high-ranking soul ring than his companions.
Only Xu Xiaoyan and Yue Zhengyu could overtake him after they fused with the immortal grass spirit souls before themselves now. On the other hand, Gu Yue was also six-ringed when she consumed the Velvet Skyreach Chrysanthemum earlier. As the captain, Tang Wulin could not spare any more of these Six Great Spirit Souls for Gu Yue as it would be unfair.
As the Nature Child, he could not withdraw even if he wanted. He was the main signee of the contract, so he was afraid that these Beasts would turn hostile immediately if he did not choose a plant-type Beast to fuse with.
Ye Xinglan was smiling gleefully. It was absolutely unbelievable for a food-type soul master to possess a one-hundred-thousand-year soul ring, and this was his sixth soul ring!
Given his cultivation base, Xu Lizhi was incapable of fusing with the spirit soul under ordinary circumstances as his body could not withstand the process. However, in this case, the Origin Energy Immortal Grass was a spirit soul that used its original body as a heaven-and-earth treasure to nourish and fuse with his body with great effort. He would only need to store a portion of energy for him to continue absorbing in the future when he reached an even higher rank, and then he would not need to worry that his body could not withstand anymore.
The group of Beasts each revealed their original bodies. The Blazing Apricot Cabbage, the Black Jade Divine Bamboo, the Earthworm Pumpkin, the Eight-pointed Frozen Grass and the Piercing Gaze Dew all flew up and shrunk their bodies before they rushed to penetrate into the Nature Seed located between Tang Wulin’s brows.
Tang Wulin felt as all sorts of auras flowed within his body. He was surprised to find that his soul power had immediately increased by one rank under the nourishment of their auras. They truly deserved their reputation of being Beast-rank heaven-and-earth treasures.
