The burly major general burst out laughing. “That’s impressive. The person is truly of good stock to be appraised by Little Xue as such. Alright, let’s take a look at his assessment exercise then.”
Long Yuxue came forward to switch the channel.
Shadows flashed once on the screen which then displayed the scene of her and Tang Wulin entering the simulated world.
Long Tianwu took a glance at his daughter with a peculiar expression on his face. He had heard from his wife about how his daughter personally brought along this new recruit for his test and gave him the highest valuation. Only the new recruit with the highest valuation deserved their attention. They personally watched the test recording so they could determine the rank for the new recruit.
The scene began to change as Long Yuxue and Tang Wulin leaped into the abyss and entered the cavern.
Tang Wulin walked in front with the iron rod in his hand while his eyes were shimmering with purple radiance occasionally.
“He was chosen and sent over by Tang Sect, but was from Shrek Academy originally? Seems like he’s a survivor from Shrek Academy?” Long Tianwu squinted his eyes.
“I think so.” Xu Weitao nodded. “I didn’t expect that Shrek would be completely annihilated. I’m afraid that our people who originated from Shrek would be out of control if not for our suppression of the news. It seems like the continent is no longer peaceful.”
Long Tianwu nodded. “It’s highly suspect and not as simple as it looks. I think it’s related to the military. Our regimental commander is on his way to the army headquarters, so we’ll wait for him to brief us on the situation when he’s back. I hope that the army headquarters will not get involved or it’ll be a big disappointment. How could they kill Atlas Douluo?”
Xu Weitao sighed once. “Some people think that the current Douluos are powerful enough. On the other hand, Shrek Academy’s neutral stance draws resentment from those who are overly ambitious. We can’t just leave this matter as it is. We’ll wait for the regimental commander to make the final decision then.”
“Hmm. huh!” The scene had begun to change as the two major generals were conversing with each other.
Long Tianwu made a bewildered sound because he saw the scene where Long Yuxue was suddenly running toward the middle cavern. Was not the difficulty of the assessment fabricated?
They then watched as Tang Wulin’s figure followed closely behind Long Yuxue. He waved the long rod up and down continuously to kill the four-clawed bats in succession.
“His close quarter combat is very impressive when he used the Tang Sect’s Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track. Moreover, he’s calm and steady. It’s quite impressive for twenty-one-year-old to do this. His strength is exceedingly powerful that he can rely on an iron rod to defeat so many four-clawed bats easily. He did it all without any reinforcements or equipment, so he has at least a second-class private’s attributes.”
Long Yuxue did not utter a word. The scene changed and the six-clawed bat had crawled its way out and pounced on Tang Wulin.
Long Tianwu and Xu Weitao’s gazes turned serious. The six-clawed bat was more than ten times stronger than the four-clawed bat, especially when it was equipped with the ability to launch sonic attacks. The soundwaves once caused a lot of trouble for the Blood God Army. A close range attack was highly distressing in many cases.
In the next moment, Long Tianwu stiffened a little because he witnessed Tang Wulin holding Long Yuxue in his arms when he defeated the six-clawed bat.
Long Yuxue’s charming face blushed as she explained, “His spiritual power is exceedingly powerful. He used his spiritual power to protect me such that I wouldn’t be struck by the soundwaves.”
Long Tianwu did not speak. A man capable of relying on pure strength to kill a six-clawed bat was definitely considered an elite amongst the new recruits.
What followed after made them change their views drastically.
Witnessing three six-clawed bats being killed by Tang Wulin, the officers, behind the two generals, were shifting in their seats. The voices of their discussions sounded as one.
Soon after, Tang Wulin fell and brought Long Yuxue down together with him. However, by using a sophisticated feet positioning technique and terrifying strength, Tang Wulin managed to kick the giant serpent away. The scene caused the two major generals to jump to their feet.
“Ba An? How did a Ba An appear there? This test is too difficult, isn’t it? What a waste, I was hoping to see how long this young boy would last.”
Long Tianwu and Xu Weitao frowned as they sat in the front row and watched a giant claw appear.
“Gentlemen, the test has not ended yet,” Long Yuxue could not refrain herself from saying.
Not ended yet? That was a Ba An!
Later, they witnessed the scene where Tang Wulin suppressed Ba An by force. It was a collision of pure strength alone. Yet, what was happening with that golden soul ring?
The entire operations room was in complete silence when Ba An was pinned against the stone wall by the Golden Dragon Spear.
He did not use his martial soul nor soul power, but he still managed to kill Ba An. He did not even use his battle armor or mecha! He relied purely on his strength. Could it be related to his bloodline’s strength possibly?
He deserved a higher accolade than ‘genius’.
Very few amongst the group of people who were present, including the senior colonels, could achieve such a victory.
“Extraordinary,” Xu Weitao spoke in a deep voice.
“Mo Mei!” Long Tianwu suddenly stood up because the scene had yet to end. A Mo Mei appeared in the scene.
In the next scene, Tang Wulin fought hard against the Mo Mei and used his body to shield Long Yuxue. The enthusiasm of the audience in the operations room was evoked once again.
Early morning the next day.
It was still pitch dark outside when Tang Wulin awakened from his meditation. The day was shorter than the night over here. He gazed at the frozen and snow-covered land outside and sensed the warm comforting temperature in the room. Tang Wulin found it relaxing to his surprise.
The heavy burden on his shoulders felt lighter when he was far away from the clamor of the inner continent. Although he had not completely forgotten his worries, at least he did not need to be stressed out.
His first impression of the Blood God Army was good. The Amorous Douluo certainly had his reasons to send Tang Wulin here. His main purpose was to work hard on elevating his power and achieve a certain military rank in the army.
There was no doubt that the Blood God Army was not as influenced by the Federation. It was an autonomous world here. Although it was not as neutral as Shrek Academy, the army was highly qualified.
As to why the Blood God Army was stationed here, the Amorous Douluo did not tell, so Tang Wulin would need to find out by himself.
The feast from last night had an impressive effect. He felt full of vigor while his blood essence power was elevated.
Tang Wulin stood up and stretched his body. After a brief wash up, he walked out from his room and went outside.
The temperature of Skyend Mountains in the early morning was extremely low. Even Tang Wulin could not help shivering. He was already dressed in a white military uniform. The well-ironed military uniform fitted him well and complemented his slim figure with a stalwart appearance.
He moved his body about slightly. Was he going to begin his special training today? He wondered what the agenda would be today.
With his prior experience from the training on the Demon Island, he did not worry about how tough the Blood God Army’s special training would be. What else could be more physically and mentally tormenting than the Demon Island?
He could not see the sky clearly as the air was filled with snow mist blowing in the sky. What a waste that his martial soul was not of ice attribute. Otherwise, he could be cultivating here to yield twice the result with half the effort.
“Tang Wulin.” A sweet voice was heard at this moment.
“Ma’am.” Tang Wulin turned around and saw Long Yuxue. “You’re early! Do you live here too?”
Long Yuxue shook her head. “No, I don’t live here. I’m here to see you. Your test grade has been despatched. Please follow me to receive your military rank after breakfast. At the same time, your assignment will be announced.”
“Yes!” Tang Wulin thumped his right hand against his chest and gave Long Yuxue the Blood God Army’s military salutation.
Long Yuxue took a step forward. She then used her left hand to support his elbow while her right hand shifted the position of his arm.
“It should be in this position. Your fist is placed slightly higher above your heart. Do you understand?”
“Have your breakfast first. Oh right, Qiyue has pleaded for mercy from you…” At this point, even Long Yuxue was amused by the situation as she recalled Jiang Qiyue’s piteous look while she implored for sympathy. She could not help feeling entertained by the prank because she did not expect Qiyue to land herself in such a situation.
“Oh? Alright, then I’ll just order one set,” Tang Wulin spoke.
“How did you manage to eat so much?” Long Yuxue could not refrain herself from asking.
Tang Wulin spoke, “Er… I’m blessed with having a good appetite, I guess. However, I can eat less. There’s no need for me to eat so much each time. However, eating more is helpful to my cultivation.”
Long Yuxue took a glance at him in surprise. She nodded and spoke, “Cultivating by eating? I bet that’s related to your bloodline ability, right?”
Tang Wulin’s chest tightened, but he did not deny it. On the contrary, he nodded.
He met Jiang Qiyue during breakfast, only that she was no longer as lively as yesterday. Her hair was pleated into two little braids that made her appear as the girl next door with a piteous expression on her face.
Tang Wulin could not help laughing in his heart. How could she think that he would not see through her disguise! What else had he not seen from the seven old demons on the Demon Island? However, he could not be bothered with her.
