Naturally, there was a reason that so few were queueing at windows number one, two and three. The Blood God Army’s used a credit system based on military gallantry. For the most part, a meal from window number one was equal to the military gallantry acquired through a low-intensity battle. To put it simply, the cost of a meal from window number one was enough to promote a private third-class to a private second-class. Even though later promotion required a huge amount of gallantry, one could imagine how expensive the food supplied from window number one was.
“Boy, what are you doing?” Jiang Wuyue furiously asked.
Tang Wulin turned his head to the side to look at him with an innocent expression. He replied, “Sir, I thought you said that I could have anything that I like?”
Jiang Wuyue’s imposing manner wavered. “It’s true that I said that you can have anything you like, but don’t waste the food. Don’t you know that greed and wastefulness are the biggest sins in life?”
Seeming sincere, Tang Wulin immediately answered, “Don’t worry, sir. I’ll never let the food go to waste.”
“Can you finish all of this? Let me remind you that every meal from window number one has a heaven-and-earth spirit item. It’s exceedingly nutritious, so there’s no way you can eat so much. You can’t digest the food even if you’re capable of eating it all. Aren’t you afraid that you’ll die from overeating?”
Tang Wulin spoke with a smile, “Sir, why don’t we do this? We make another bet. If I can eat all of this, then the next meal…”
“B*stard. Did I say I wanted to bet you? Back off.” Jiang Wuyue sounded slightly agitated.
A faint voice came from window number one. “Goods sold are not refundable. Battalion Commander Jiang, please pay up. You’re the one who said you conceded defeat.”
Jiang Wuyue’s lips twitched. He still needed an extremely large amount of military gallantry to be promoted from a lieutenant colonel to colonel. He had already been accumulating his gallantry for over a year, but he still had two-thirds to go. In this single meal, one-tenth of his gallantry had been spent, so it was no wonder that he was regretting his decision.
Meanwhile, Tang Wulin could not be bothered with him anymore as he stood at the window and began eating in huge gulps.
He had no idea what the ingredients used for the food were, but he could certainly tell that the taste was absolutely amazing. It was no less scrumptious than the food Teacher Mu Ye made. There was a dish made of extremely tender and juicy pheasant. It was so good it made Tang Wulin feel like eating his own tongue.
Jiang Wuyue suppressed the pain in his heart and paid the bill. Just as he turned around and fumingly looked back at Tang Wulin, the irate expression on his face froze instantly.
This was because three sets of dishes from window number one had already disappeared in the time it took him to pay the bill. Tang Wulin was working hard on the fourth set now.
A huge bowl of Snow Spirit Bird’s broth was made from an entire Snow Spirit Bird. Jiang Wuxue watched as Tang Wulin put the whole leg into his mouth and spat out the bone in the next moment. A bowl of soup had vanished completely within a few breaths.
He appeared to be eating fast but kept his manners entirely intact. Seeing him eat, it was as if Tang Wulin was on an assembly line.
As Jiang Wuxue stood there dazed, another set was finished.
Watching the scene from a distance, Jiang Qiyue and Long Yuxue were both similarly stunned.
“Is the boy reincarnated from a soul that died in a famine? I can’t afford to provide for him when he eats like this, no matter how good looking he is, right?” Jiang Qiyue gulped.
Long Yuxue’s lips cracked into a contemplative smile. “If I’m not mistaken, I recall that someone else placed a bet earlier as well. Do you have enough military gallantry? You can always borrow from me if you’re short. I thought you just mentioned earlier that I’m not supposed to break the rules. As it is, I guess I’ll charge you one-hundred percent monthly interest.”
“Don’t do that, Yuxue!” Jiang Qiyue screamed out in agony. “I’m about to go broke! Don’t do it! I’ve already been collecting my military gallantry for a long time in order to be promoted to major. Oh my god! Where did you find such a monster?! What am I going to do? Yuxue, you must help me, or else please help me beg for mercy from him. You’re the one who brought him in anyway.”
Long Yuxue shrugged. “The evil we bring on ourselves is the hardest to bear. I can’t help you when you’re the one asking for trouble.”
Jiang Wuyue’s mouth was already agape as he witnessed Tang Wulin eat all ten sets of dishes from window number one. He then watched Tang Wulin walk to window number one and ask the chef inside, “Do you still have more?”
“No, that’s all we have for today,” said the head chef inside the canteen.
Jiang Wuyue could not stop himself from asking, “You’re still hungry?”
Tang Wulin walked to window number two, saying, “I suppose I can make do with number two.”
It had been a long time since he feasted so heartily, but the feast today was truly decadent. He did not want to bankrupt Jiang Wuyue, but he truly could not stop himself from eating.
The food was fantastic in quality as well as quantity. He felt as the lethargy he had been suffering from recently was swept away. His entire body finally felt at ease and contented. Moreover, the blood essence vortex in his chest was already spinning at its highest speed. There seemed to be faint glittering light shimmering in the very center of its core. It was just the right time for him to replenish a large amount of energy. He had almost finished digesting all of the food that he had just consumed.
Tang Wulin feasted on a dozen meals from window number two before he stopped. He cracked a toothy grin at Jiang Wuyue, whose face had already turned the color of mud. “Thank you, sir.”
Jiang Wuyue stood there dumbstruck, watching him depart. Tang Wulin greeted Jiang Qiyue and Long Yuxue before leaving the canteen and returning to his quarters.
A soldier’s room was not very well-furnished. It was ten square meters with a very simple washroom. However, Tang Wulin was quite satisfied, as he had a room to himself. That was at least better than sharing a room with someone else.
‘Gu Yue, what do I do when I can’t get in touch with you?’ Tang Wulin was feeling slightly anxious. He could not possibly wait for four years until he was promoted to the rank of major.
In order to accumulate gallantry to move up the military’s ranks, Tang Wulin would first need to figure out the basics of their scoring system in the special training for the following month.
He sat cross-legged on his bed and meditated. He would need to seize every opportunity he could to cultivate painstakingly. He could possess a one-hundred-thousand-year soul ring as soon as he had broken through to rank-60, so his cultivation base would undoubtedly ascend to a whole new level. Tang Wulin’s fight with Mo Mei that day made his own inadequacies clear to him. His strength was enough, but he still had a lot of room for growth when it came to converting it into speed. He would need to improve on that or else his strength, though incredible, would be wasted if it was ineffective against the enemy.
While Tang Wulin was meditating, a total of twelve people was watching a screen in Operation Room No.3 inside the Blood God Army’s command post.
The screen was displaying Tang Wulin’s climb up Skyend Mountain.
Long Yuxue was there as well. She was standing behind, while the rest of the people sitting there were at the rank of senior colonel or higher. Seated at the front were two generals with stars pinned to their uniforms.
These generals were men who appeared to be over forty years of age. One of them was huge and muscular, with thick brows and large eyes. He had a handsome and dignified appearance as he sat there exuding an air of grandeur.
The person by his side was a tall and slim man. He appeared to be sixty percent similar to Long Yuxue, so it was apparent that he was related to her.
“Pretty impressive physical capabilities there,” the major general with the well-built physique said with a deep voice.
Long Yuxue spoke, “Yes, I’ve examined the data. It took a total of eight days from when he entered Skyend Mountain to arriving at the barracks. There was no sign of him using his soul power or martial soul. However…”
“However what?” the major general that looked very similar to her asked.
Long Yuxue answered, “However, he seemed to possess an unusual kind of strength. I think it originates from his bloodline. Generals, both of you can take a look at the footage from his test to witness how he displays the strength later. It’s very peculiar but also extremely powerful.”
