He formed a fist with his right hand and punched the Six-clawed Bat.
The bat had just crawled out of the cavern, so it had barely stabilized its foothold and could not dodge it. All it could do was lash out at Tang Wulin with its six claws.
Six against one, it was a fierce stand-off.
However, at that point, Tang Wulin had a little technique prepared. He bent his legs and tapped on two of the bat’s claws with the tips of his toes. Then, he pulled his body back and evaded the Six-clawed Bat’s attack, landing his punch mercilessly upon its head.
“Boom!” The Six-clawed Bat’s body shattered. Tang Wulin relied on the momentum to do a somersault and descended from the skies. As he fell, he reached his left hand out in the direction of the metal rod which he had tossed. The Controlling Crane Capturing Dragon!
Even without the support of his soul power, the blood essence vortex within him still spun at high speed. He had also unleashed his Controlling Crane Capturing Dragon, and the rod suddenly flew back to his hands.
The other Six-clawed Bat was extremely crafty. Rather than attack him, it pounced at the major.
The major stood there unmoving, but she frowned. Although Tang Wulin had displayed extremely powerful abilities, if he was just a reckless man who only cared about fighting and did not care about his comrades, they would have no use for him.
Just then, a black shadow flashed before her eyes. With a soft thud, the Six-clawed Bat, almost upon her by then, was impaled by the long rod from the side. It was nailed into the rock wall far away. The instant the metal rod hit the rock wall, the terrifying energy erupted. It shook the Six-clawed Bat’s body until it shattered.
While the major was still staring at this scene with her mouth agape, Tang Wulin had already returned to her side and stood still there.
A black shadow shot toward Tang Wulin as quick as lightning. It did not look very large, but it was long, like a serpent with a row of little claws under its belly. When it had almost reached Tang Wulin, it suddenly opened its jaws and made to bite him.
This creature came very swiftly. It had almost reached Tang Wulin when he tossed his metal rod out for the second time and hit the third Six-clawed Bat. Of course, its target was not Tang Wulin, but the major.
Tang Wulin was fast enough to shield the major with his own body. However, the metal rod was not in his hands right now. The creature’s open jaw was more than a meter in diameter. There were rows of sharp, grotesque teeth inside its big mouth, but what was even more terrifying was that it stuck its tongue out at lightning speed and stabbed at Tang Wulin like a lance.
If he dealt with the tongue, he would not be able to deal with the jaw. He had only hastily managed to shield the major, so no matter how he looked at it, he would not be able to react in time to block this creature’s attacks.
At this critical moment, Tang Wulin reacted in a way that even the major did not expect. Appearing as though he had slipped, his entire body fell to the ground. Not only that, he swept at the major’s feet with his right hand and made her fall backward as well.
The major exclaimed in shock. She could not control her own body, but she saw that the lance-like tongue missed her by a hair’s breadth above her nose. Though she gasped, she did not close her eyes. This was a quality that was necessary for an outstanding soldier. She turned to look in Tang Wulin’s direction.
She saw that as Tang Wulin fell backward, he supported his body with one foot while he kicked upward with his other foot, landing the blow on the creature’s chin.
The power of his kick was so terrifying, it forcibly shut the creature’s mouth upon impact. Its chin collided with its upper jaw with blinding speed.
With a thud, the creature’s extended tongue was severed by its own jaws. Not only that, Tang Wulin’s strength even shattered its mouth full of steel teeth. The teeth came spattering out of its mouth.
When Tang Wulin kicked out, he did not forget to pull on the major’s feet. The major only felt a gentle force on her legs which stabilized her the instant before she was about to hit the ground. Tang Wulin was already getting back on his feet. He supported her back with his right hand and lightly tapped on the ground with his left. Without exerting too much force, he was standing upright again and brought her along with him.
All this was accomplished while they caught their breath. Tang Wulin’s movements seemed as natural as the clouds and smooth as flowing water. He did not appear rushed in the slightest. As a result of a single kick, the creature had bitten off its own tongue, shattered its teeth and its body was sent flying upward. Tang Wulin tapped the ground with the tips of his toes and rose into the skies. He quickly ran in the direction of his metal rod while he held the major in his arms.
The major had only just broken out of her stupor. However, there was only one thought that was going through her mind, ‘He can even do that?’
A series of shrill howls came from the cavern. The giant serpent’s body which was sent flying in midair by Tang Wulin’s kick suddenly froze. Shortly after, from the largest opening, out came a huge claw which suddenly grabbed the serpent’s body. It jerked backward with great force and the strange serpent disappeared amidst the wails.
Tang Wulin had just dislodged his metal rod from the wall, and his expression was grim. ‘What was that?’ The size of the claw was more than six meters in diameter. If he judged it by normal standards, the owner of this claw could definitely not have crawled out from these openings. Also, this was the first time that he truly felt threatened.
He pulled the major and placed her behind him. Tang Wulin extended the rod in front of him as his eyes scrutinized the openings.
After a brief pause, the entire cavern suddenly started shaking slightly. Then, mist suddenly came bursting out from all the burrows.
Shock flashed across the major’s eyes. She clearly knew what this creature was. However, she clearly did not imagine that such a thing would appear in this assessment.
The dense mist was yellowish in color. As it surrounded them, Tang Wulin felt as if the atmosphere in the cavern suddenly changed. The temperature remained unchanged, but there was an unstable vibration putting pressure on them.
What was this?
He did not rashly launch into an attack. Instead, he observed calmly. Since it made him feel threatened, this thing’s combat strength would definitely not be a laughing matter.
The mist quickly condensed and a massive figure appeared.
It was a monster which Tang Wulin had never seen before. It had a giant dragon’s head, but its body was like a hill, covered in dark green scales and supported by three legs. Its formidable upper body was clearly brimming with power. Its arms were especially long, and its two sharp claws were exactly what Tang Wulin had seen just moments ago. Every claw was more than five meters wide. It dragged a huge tail behind itself and had four eyes which flickered with a blood red glow. The aura its entire body exuded was especially vile.
“That is Ba An. Be careful,” the major softly advised.
Ba An? What was that? Other than its name, the major’s warning had no information for Tang Wulin.
However, it was better than nothing. For a monster to have its own name and surname, it was obvious that it would not be that easy to deal with. Tang Wulin lowered his voice, “Brace yourself against the cave wall here and don’t move. I’ll deal with it.” As he said this, he had already stridden forward and charged right at the monster.
This monster was absolutely massive. It looked to be more than forty meters tall. Among all the soul beasts of the continent Tang Wulin has seen, it was second only to the Overlord Dragon.
However, he was currently unable to use his martial soul, and he had no way to summon the Overlord Dragon. Otherwise, it would have been a nice option to fight this creature with it.
Compared to this colossal Ba An, Tang Wulin appeared tiny and insignificant. With a great leap, he shot straight up like an arrow, stirring the air as he ascended. He raised the long rod in his hand and smacked Ba An with it.
The major stood in a corner. While she witnessed Tang Wulin’s charge, her heart shuddered slightly in that instant for reasons unknown to her.
Not everyone had the courage to charge at a monster with Ba An’s rank. This was especially true when it was the person’s first encounter with it.
Ba An growled furiously. Its four eyes lit up like a ball of fire. It opened its mouth and dark purple flames shot toward Tang Wulin.
The major instinctively shut her eyes. She truly did not want to see Tang Wulin being burned to ashes amidst that Deep Abyss Demon Flame.
For ordinary soul masters without any equipment, when they were faced with Ba An’s Deep Abyss Demon Flame, there was no other possibility other than melting instantly and turning into wraiths.
However, in the next instant, the sound that reached her ear was Ba An’s furious roar of pain.
She quickly opened her eyes. The major saw with shock that a golden figure had already charged onto the top of Ba An’s head. She would never forget this shocking scene. Ba An’s massive body flew sideways toward the faraway cave wall. It crashed roughly and bounced off before finally landing on the ground.
Tang Wulin descended from above and tossed the metal rod away. He had no other choice. This alloy metal rod was supposed to be very tough, but it had bent and could not be used anymore
