Feeling helpless, Tang Wulin said, “I can’t do that! There’s no way I can take you there in your current condition. I heard from the Vice Hall Master that the Skyend Mountain army has the roughest and most mysterious group of people on the entire continent. I’m afraid that you’ll be in danger over there. Stay here first. I’ll take you there if I find a suitable place for you to stay, alright?”
Tang Wulin learned that Gu Yuena was capable of living on her own after being with her for so many days. The only issue was her exceptional beauty which was a source of concern for Tang Wulin. He had bought some tools earlier during the journey to make her a mask. The mask concealed her exquisite beauty while her hair was dyed black, so she did not appear conspicuous any longer.
Gu Yuena lowered her head which was how she reacted whenever she was dissatisfied. Naturally, Tang Wulin was filled with pity when he saw her condition, so he tried consoling her. It was Gu Yuena’s most effective tactic in dealing with Tang Wulin.
“Be a good girl. I really can’t take you along this time. Eh, can you smell the scent of roast meat?” Tang Wulin’s eyes suddenly brightened as he nudged Gu Yuena.
“Where, where’s it coming from?” As expected, the little foodie immediately looked up with an excited expression on her face. She had been extremely dissatisfied after eating dried rations for the past few days in the desert.
Soon, they found a roast meat shop that was regularly patronized by the locals in the Fire Basin. They feasted on large chunks of roast meat which were complemented with the fruit wine brewed locally.
The meat was roasted to perfection such that it was tender on the inside but charred on the outside. Not only was it savory, but the juices inside the roast meat were also preserved. Tang Wulin and Gu Yuena feasted in decadence.
Although Tang Wulin did not need large amounts of food to support his bloodline power anymore, he still had a high metabolism for being a foodie for so many years. Both of them ate five portions before they finally stopped.
“Gu Yue, look. There’s so much scrumptious food here in the Fire Basin. Stay and you can have roast meat every day. On the other hand, if you follow me to the Skyend Mountain, you’ll only have dried rations every day just like when we were in the desert. I won’t feel good knowing that you won’t be eating well. Be a good girl and stay here, alright?”
Gu Yuena was patiently coaxed until she agreed. Next, Tang Wulin had to get her accommodation. He was not short of money, so he found the best hotel for Gu Yuena and reserved a room for three months.
Most amenities were available in the hotel. Tang Wulin provided her with adequate money and brought her along to stay for two days. This was so she could adapt and get used to living there on her own. Following that, Tang Wulin left with the Tang Sect Combat Vehicle and headed straight for the Skyend Mountain.
Driving alone was miserable. Having traveled only a hundred kilometers, he had thought of turning back to pick up Gu Yuena not less than ten times. He relied on his intensely strong willpower to suppress the impulse in his heart with great effort.
“Beep, beep!” The soul communicator resounded. It was a brand new soul communicator which Tang Wulin had just purchased in the Fire Basin. His communicator which he had brought along earlier had been shut off.
“What happened, Gu Yue?” Tang Wulin did not even check, but he knew it was her since she was the only person who knew this number.
“Father, I miss you already.” Gu Yuena’s voice sounded like she was crying.
“Be a good girl, Gu Yue. I’ll be back soon. Do more meditation daily to absorb the Velvet Skyreach Chrysanthemum’s energy so you can recover soon. You can call me whenever you miss me, and I’ll call you before I come back, alright?”
“Hmm.” Gu Yuena’s voice sounded like she was sobbing harder now.
“Alright, I’m coming back now. Wait for me.” He could not stand it anymore!
Tang Wulin turned the car around and returned to the Fire Basin. He stopped the car in front of the hotel. As soon as he got down from the car, Gu Yuena ran up to him and thrust her svelte figure abruptly into his arms.
She did not say a word but only hugged him tightly.
Tang Wulin could feel his heart melting. How could he possibly part with her? He was overwhelmed with mixed emotions at once.
“Father, you can leave now. I’ll be a good girl,” Gu Yuena suddenly looked up and spoke with determination.
Tang Wulin was stunned for a moment.
Gu Yuena smiled at him and tiptoed to kiss him on his cheek before pushing him back into the car. “Come back to visit me soon.”
Tang Wulin was slightly confused. He was speechless as he looked at Gu Yuena beaming with joy. “Gu Yue, do you want to…”
“You can go, father. I’ll grow up to be a good girl as I wait for you to come back.” Gu Yuena pushed him into the car, then waved at him.
Tang Wulin felt like he had lost control of his emotions. “Or else, you can…”
On the other hand, Gu Yuena smiled as she closed the door. “Father is willing to come back so it shows that I’m important to you. Go, quick. I’m a sensible child. Don’t worry, I’ll take good care of myself.”
Tang Wulin smiled at once. He was more at ease now. His car slowly gained speed while he looked at his rearview mirror occasionally. She remained standing there waving at him. His heart was enshrouded with love at this moment.
“Is the condition at the Skyend Mountain very tough? What is it to me? She’ll be waiting for me.”
Tang Wulin turned a corner and accelerated as he headed straight for the Skyend Mountain with a valiant will to fight.
Gu Yuena stopped waving her hand when she could no longer see the silhouette of the combat vehicle. “Whoosh.” Her tears overflowed the rims of her eyes and wetted her cheeks.
“Little girl, why are you crying?” A raspy voice came from the side. A young man with dark complexion dressed in a top that revealed half a shoulder approached Gu Yue.
“Go away!” Gu Yue suddenly shouted aloud.
The young man shivered once. It was as if he had seen some exceedingly terrifying things in her purple eyes. His initially dark face turned ghastly pale as he turned around and fled.
Within the pair of crystal clear purple eyes, her vertical pupils constricted gradually and returned to its initial state.
There was only shock in Tang Wulin’s heart as he looked at the scenery in the distance.
Rolling, snowy white hills stretched as far as the eyes could see. It soared higher the further it stretched until it soared straight into the clouds.
The sun appeared to be much closer than it normally is. Tang Wulin could sense that the light element here was overpowering. It might cause negative effects on his body despite his body’s strong defense. Apparently, he did not mind it too much because of his strong, resilient body.
The road had already come to an end. He had to cross the snow mountain in order to reach his destination.
It was Tang Wulin’s first experience in such a terrain where the air was thin and few people trod. Still, he was bedazzled by the beauty of nature.
He turned his head and looked behind. The places he passed were still green. Yet, when he turned around, his path ahead was covered in snow.
Standing there, he felt as trifle as a drop in the vast ocean. This is the charm of nature! How could anyone destroy such magnificence?
The Nature Seed positioned between his brows seemed to tremble gently once. It was as if the seed was responding to the fluctuation in his heart. Tang Wulin inhaled deeply as he walked in great strides toward the snow mountain ahead. At the same time, he retrieved the positioning system device given to him especially by the Amorous Douluo.
The positioning system could only be used to locate his destination. He had already turned it on since he left the Fire Basin and relied on its guidance to arrive here. At the moment, the positioning system was pointing at the snow mountain.
The temperature was already very low. Tang Wulin was dressed in an unlined garment. His footsteps were quick and steady while the bloodline vortex in his body circulated naturally to disperse the cold air around his body.
Soon, he entered the region of the snow mountain, and he found it difficult to walk. However, he did not unleash his battle armor because the Amorous Douluo once told him that he would need to be a conventional person while he was here. It was because each person enlisting in the army would need to walk this path on his own two feet. Even a flying soul master was no exception. It was the rule. He was also not allowed to use his martial soul, or he would face elimination otherwise.
