Chapter 944: Jiang Wuyue’s Surprise
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Jiang Wuyue had been beaten woefully by Tang Wulin during the two attacks. Tang Wulin had not even used his golden soul ring’s strength yet. At present, he was about to use his strongest soul ring. How could Jiang Wuyue possibly withstand it?
However, Jiang Qiyue watched as Tang Wulin’s lips cracked into a smile.
A golden halo rippled away from underneath his feet and spread outward swiftly. Step by step, Tang Wulin walked in Jiang Wuyue’s direction. Soon, the golden halo with complex striations appeared underneath Jiang Wuyue’s feet and enshrouded him.
Precisely at that moment, an extremely loud and sonorous dragon’s roar broke out from Jiang Wuyue’s mouth. The spine on his majestic body straightened instantly.
His heavy and thick black scales abruptly turned golden while the submission and fear he felt earlier vanished during that split second. His mind was now filled with extreme excitement.
Jiang Wuyue felt as if the blood in his body was boiling. His soul power increased exponentially. He had never felt this powerful before. He even felt that he could pull down the heavens if it had a handle or pulled up the ground if there was a hoop.
“Roar, roar, roar…” a series of raging roars escaped his mouth. The dark golden color on his body grew brighter until his entire person was enshrouded by a layer of dark golden gloss. Even his six soul rings were misted with a layer of faint golden radiance.
He took a glance at the scales on his body. His initial Overlord Dragon’s scales were uneven, but the scales were undergoing changes till they became well-defined. The scales took on the form of diamonds while the dark golden gloss had a texture to them now. Jiang Wuyue felt at ease when he sensed the potent surges from his body. He felt confident enough to tear apart a Ba An if one were to appear before him now.
Tang Wulin discovered that all his four Golden Dragon King soul skills had evolved after he broke through the ninth layer of the Golden Dragon King Seal. It was unprecedented. The most obvious evolution was his fourth soul skill, the Golden Dragon Rage Domain. The elevation of the domain more than doubled with its effect becoming even more powerful.
Jiang Wuyue could clearly sense the change due to his Overlord Dragon Bloodline which was in close proximity to the Golden Dragon King. As a result, his power was elevated by more than fifty percent.
He went from being suppressed to being elevated. The sudden turn of events overwhelmed him.
The golden halo retracted then vanished. Tang Wulin spoke to Jiang Wuyue, “Sir, that’s all for today.”
The strength that had increased exponentially in Tang Wulin’s body immediately vanished without the golden halo’s enhancement. His scales returned to normal while his aura reduced soon after. The pain he suffered from the collision earlier had disappeared because of the halo’s appearance.
“What kind of ability is that? Why does it make me feel like I’ve become so much more powerful?” Jiang Wuyue looked at Tang Wulin with a blazing gaze. He had completely forgotten that the youth before him was his love rival. As a member of the Blood God Army, he revered Tang Wulin’s strength so much so that he was enthralled by his capability.
Tang Wulin smiled and spoke, “I think it’s possibly because our bloodlines originated from the same source.” He could not summon his Overlord Dragon spirit soul now because there was no way it could fit into the space available.
“Same source of bloodline? What’s your martial soul?” Jiang Wuyue asked in puzzlement.
Tang Wulin replied, “It’s just my bloodline and not related to my martial soul.”
Jiang Wuyue looked confused. “That’s not right! I can tell from your aura that you’re more than just a four-ring. Yet, why are there only four rings on you, and they’re all golden?”
Tang Wulin spoke with a bitter smile, “It’s complicated to explain. That’s not a soul ring but it’s an ability from my bloodline. My martial soul is something else.” It was apparent that he was not going to elaborate further.
Jiang Wuyue spoke, “How long can your final ability lasts?”
Tang Wulin answered, “It’s not an issue to go on for half an hour.”
Jiang Wuyue’s eyes brightened. Half an hour? He recalled the feeling he experienced earlier of how his power was elevated to a level beyond his imagination. Moreover, he thought about Tang Wulin’s close-range combat ability which had unfolded before his eyes. It made him view Tang Wulin differently.
Tang Wulin felt slightly uneasy as he sensed Jiang Wuyue’s burning gaze. “Sir, look. Regarding that one thousand merit points…”
“Yes. I’m giving it to you at once.” Jiang Wuyue wrapped his arm around Tang Wulin’s shoulder. He then raised his bracelet and operated on it for a moment to transfer a thousand merit points to Tang Wulin.
“Brother, all that happened prior to this was in the spirit of elevating our martial souls, right? You said that you have a girlfriend already, didn’t you?” Jiang Wuyue spoke affectionately.
Tang Wulin could not bear to tell him that they were actually not that close. So, he only nodded and replied, “That’s right! I have a girlfriend and we’re getting along in our relationship.”
“Then it’s all a misunderstanding. Brother, I don’t think that the Secret Service is suitable for you. Why don’t you come over to my section? It’s not difficult to accumulate military merits with your abilities. I’ll encourage our brothers from the 1st Iron Blood Battalion to support you. I assure you that we’ll assist to get you promoted as a captain within a year at most, so you can be the deputy battalion commander. What do you think? Moreover, if you’re willing to come to our side, I’ll immediately make arrangements for you to be the captain for our main link. Although your military rank may be low, our battalion takes into account a person’s abilities. Who would dare oppose you when you’re even capable of defeating me?”
‘Become the deputy battalion commander in a year? It’s only a rank below the major, right?’ Tang Wulin’s interest was immediately aroused.
Meanwhile, the door to the battle room opened and in walked two people from the outside.
“Very well! Jiang Wuyue, how dare you snatch away my man?” The person walking in front was not Jiang Qiyue but Long Yuxue who came rushing over upon hearing the news.
Jiang Qiyue dialed Long Yuxue’s number when she found Tang Wulin and Jiang Wuyue were about to fight. She was appreciative of Tang Wulin’s kind gesture for not eating a full feast using her military merits the other day.
However, when Long Yuxue met them, she saw that they were quite amicable with each other with Jiang Wuyue attempting to entice Tang Wulin with his offer.
Jiang Wuyue immediately lost his cool as soon as he noticed Long Yuxue’s presence. He hastily smiled apologetically and said, “Yuxue, I don’t mean that. Look at Brother Tang’s impressive close-range combat ability. It’s truly a waste of good talent if he doesn’t come over to join our side!”
Long Yuxue gave a cold scoff. “I’ll be reporting to Senior Xu later about how you’re making promises on awarding positions in private. You can land yourself in serious trouble. Moreover, Wulin has just joined the army and he’s still not familiar with everything here. Our Secret Service similarly needs a talent like him. So, he won’t be going over to the combat unit any time soon. Our Secret Service has a bigger purpose for him. You must first go through me before you try to recruit any of my men!”
Jiang Wuyue would perhaps have rolled up his sleeves in preparation for a fight had it been another person. In this case, he could not do anything when he was confronted by Long Yuxue. He raised his hands helplessly. “Sure. I surrender. I won’t be taking your staff anymore.”
Long Yuxue pulled Tang Wulin away from Jiang Wuyue’s arm. “Let’s go.”
Tang Wulin was pulled out from the combat unit straight away. Jiang Qiyue looked at Tang Wulin differently even now. She gazed after their departing figures. She turned around but could not refrain from asking her brother. “Brother, was Tang Wulin’s strength so terrifying? Why did it seem like you couldn’t even resist him?”
Jiang Wuyue spoke with a distressed expression, “I don’t know what happened either. The aura on his body seemed to have an innate ability to suppress me. We weren’t fighting actually. I think I can fight him if I were to devote all my efforts together with my battle armor’s strength, but it seems like he wasn’t putting in his all as well. I don’t have the confidence to triumph over him though. Do you know how old he is?”
Jiang Qiyue answered, “I think he’s twenty-one years old. I’ve heard Sister Yuxue mentioned it before.”
