It was truly as quick as lightning. The strange blade in her hands directly slashed at Tang Wulin’s shoulder.
Tang Wulin never expected her to have such speed that was akin to teleportation. Even if he had foreseen this, it was too late to dodge her attack now. At this moment, Tang Wulin made the only choice available to him.
He did not attempt to dodge, nor did he make any defensive movements. He scratched at his opponent’s chest with his left hand. He swung his right hand brazenly, the Golden Dragon Nirvana Claw!
He gave up the Golden Dragon Spear. It dropped down and he caught it with his right foot.
Both sides suffered losses!
Tang Wulin was quite confident in his own defensive powers and recovery abilities. He would have to attack his enemy’s weakness!
Mo Mei snorted with disdain. The long knife in her hands brought with it a chain of afterimages. Its movement was swift. Before Tang Wulin’s hands could reach her, the blade had sliced into his shoulder mercilessly.
“Whoosh!” Blood spattered. Tang Wulin felt his left shoulder blade shattered by the terrifying great force. However, at this moment, his tenacious body revealed its qualities.
Although he could not use his soul skills, the defensive power of the Mountain Dragon King’s Torso Bone was still effective. When his collarbone and shoulder blade was shattered, his bones retracted to forcefully clasp the battle knife of his enemy.
The battle knife emitted energy that was filled with despair and destruction. Since Tang Wulin had undergone the Demon Island’s training, his body’s destruction energy was much purer than the knife’s. Hence, he was not overly affected by it.
His left hand did not manage to reach his enemy. Nevertheless, his right hand stayed on course as the Golden Dragon Nirvana Claw made its way toward its target.
Mo Mei was highly confident in her own speed. However, she had not expected Tang Wulin’s claw attack to encompass an area of ten square meters. Five streaks of dark golden light flashed.
Mo Mei had already retreated more than twenty meters, but she was still hit by the golden light.
Just before she was hit, she suddenly brought her wings close to herself.
Like a cannonball, Mo Mei shot toward the faraway rock wall which was a hundred meters away. One of her wings was torn away by the Golden Dragon Nirvana Claw and ended up floating in the air. Tang Wulin endured the intense pain from his shoulder. He tossed the Golden Dragon Spear with his right foot and it flew toward Mo Mei quick as lightning.
He had no chance to seize the opportunity. The instant his feet touched the ground, he turned around and began running. He sprinted toward the major at his fastest pace.
Mo Mei’s speed was too quick for him. He could only protect the major while he was within a certain distance from the major.
A dark green light flashed. After Mo Mei crashed onto the rock wall, she slid down onto the ground just before the Golden Dragon Spear reached her. She had obviously suffered great damage as well. She did not merely lose a wing, there were also five deep cuts on her body.
Her wounds wriggled violently to close up, but the sharp edge of the Golden Dragon Nirvana Claw had torn her body savagely. Swathes of dark green fluid flowed down her body. When they dripped onto the ground, they immediately turned into a dense, dark green gas which spread everywhere.
“Human, your soul will suffer eternal torture in the deep abyss!” Mo Mei’s voice sounded in Tang Wulin’s head again. At this moment, Tang Wulin was already with the major, and he had removed the battle knife from his shoulder.
He sealed his blood vessels so as not to lose too much blood. Although Tang Wulin’s complexion had turned pale, he did not show any signs of pain on his face.
Tenacity had always been his forte.
Golden light flashed and the Golden Dragon Spear was in his grasp. Tang Wulin took a deep breath as he mediated the blood essence vortex within him. The dense blood essence power surged wildly toward his wound. He carried the spear with his left hand while he pushed on his shoulder with his right hand to realign his bones.
The major stood behind him. She could hear the cracking sounds of his shifting bones. However, Tang Wulin did not even shudder once.
He had a will that was as tough as iron!
“Ah, it’s completed. It’s supposed to be completed.” the major searched frantically for something on herself.
At this very moment, the faraway Mo Mei suddenly moved. She swayed and instantly split into two. From an opening in the cave, countless dark green lights surged forth wildly and entered her body.
Her broken wing had regrown. With her terrifying speed, she appeared next to Tang Wulin in the blink of an eye. Her two split bodies squeezed him. Her split body’s left half held another battle knife which had materialized out of thin air and slashed at Tang Wulin’s shoulder again. Her right half suddenly paused in mid-air. The runes appeared once again. However, this time, they were not aimed at Tang Wulin, but at the major behind him.
Mo Mei was just too fast. Whether it was her speed, strength, or the terrifying curses, they shocked him greatly.
Everything happened in the blink of an eye. Tang Wulin did not even have time to think. He could only manage split-second decisions.
He did not bother about the Mo Mei which came at him from the left. Tang Wulin turned around instantly. He spread his arms and pulled the major into his embrace. Simultaneously, a mass of golden light erupted from his body.
The Golden Dragon Roar!
The major felt a scorching shockwave erupting from Tang Wulin’s body. She was immobilized by the deadly curse, but now she had regained her ability to move.
“Swish!” The sound of a sharp blade slicing into flesh was so near. However, she only felt a comforting sense of security and the rapid flickering scales.
She felt as if the entire world was turned inside out. The major could faintly see Tang Wulin sweeping his Golden Dragon Spear horizontally to smash both Mo Meis till they reeled from the impact. The Golden Dragon’s roar still resounded in the air, while at the same time, she saw a brilliant golden arm fall to the ground.
She instinctively shut her eyes with all her might. Simultaneously, she pressed on the instrument’s button which she had finally found.
Everything around them was distorted. Only Mo Mei’s shrill howl resounded in their ears. The instant they vanished, there were only two drops of tears that fell on the ground. They turned into water vapor as Mo Mei’s terrifying attacks came in rapid succession.
His body shuddered. Tang Wulin slowly opened his eyes. His chest rose and fell slightly. He only managed to calm down after a few breaths.
He instinctively touched his left shoulder. It was still intact. However, the intense pain he felt lingered. It was too surreal!
He sighed inwardly. If he did not have to protect the major, he would still have some fight left in him. If he had stabbed Mo Mei with his Golden Dragon Spear, he would have the chance to turn the defeat into a victory. However, Mo Mei was truly powerful. He had no idea how the Blood God Army had developed such a monster for the sake of the assessment.
The glass cover opened, and all the fastening equipment on Tang Wulin’s body was released. He flexed his shoulders and walked out from under the glass cover.
The major beside him had not woken up yet. Through the glass cover, he could see that her brows were tightly knitted together as if she was under some immense pain.
Suddenly, her body shook violently, then she calmed down. Was it a sign of her regaining consciousness?
Tang Wulin could determine from the major’s aura that she should have a cultivation base of around five rings in terms of soul power alone. Although he did not know her origins, at her age of about twenty-six, she was exceedingly outstanding to have attained a soul power of such a rank.
Tang Wulin could not compare his comrades and himself to ordinary soul masters. After all, they were the current generation of the Shrek Seven Monsters. They stood at the pinnacle among their peers.
After a brief moment, the major slowly opened her eyes. Her eyes were not focused at first, but they quickly adjusted after a while. Through the glass cover, she saw Tang Wulin staring at her from the outside.
A complicated gaze flashed across the depths of her eyes. The major opened the glass cover and unfastened herself from the equipment at the same time.
When she took her first step out from underneath the glass cover, her knees buckled. Tang Wulin instinctively lurched forward and caught her in time.
He had not noticed it during the battle, but Tang Wulin clearly felt it now. The major’s body temperature was slightly high, but she was in good shape and her body was supple. It was obviously the result of frequent exercise. She had neat, short hair and an attractive face.
“Thank you.” the major’s beautiful face blushed as she struggled to stand up and break free of Tang Wulin’s embrace.
Tang Wulin ventured, “My assessment…”
The major was stunned, but she quickly returned to normal. Even her expression regained its icy-cold trademark.
“You’ve passed. Come with me.” After she finished, she brought him out of the room which was used exclusively for assessments. She walked quickly. At the very least, she walked quicker than when they came as if she was running away from something.
