Chapter 947: The Saint Craftsman’s Surprise
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
How could these two women not feel shocked when Tang Wulin told them that he could do soul forging at present?
Tang Wulin smiled. “Practice is the sole criterion of truth. Ma’am, I welcome you to recommend me more customers.”
One thousand merit points for the second method was very expensive. Five thousand merit points for the third method was even more expensive. Yet, it would not be considered expensive if the blacksmith was actually a Saint Craftsman. It was truly not that expensive!
Lu Ni looked down at the gun barrel in her hands. She could not even begin to imagine that the person who helped her to forge earlier turned out to be a Saint Craftsman.
It was simply unbelievable. What was a Saint Craftsman? A Saint Craftsman was a person capable of forging the base metal for a red mecha. He was a person capable of completing the pre-production for three-word battle armor.
A Saint Craftsman stood at the peak of the forging world and held an exceedingly high status in the entire continent. There was only one Divine Craftsman on Douluo Continent! On the other hand, the person before her was already a Saint Craftsman at an age of barely twenty years. How could one be certain he would not be the next Divine Craftsman?
Long Yuxue’s exquisite body was trembling mildly as she looked at the warm smile on Tang Wulin’s face. The way she cast her eyes on him was changing subtly.
Lu Ni took a deep breath as she stored her gun barrel cautiously. Then, she pressed a few buttons on her Blood God Bracelet. “Thank you for your trouble. Kindly receive these merit points.”
Tang Wulin spoke, “Ma’am, I said that it’s free of charge!”
Lu Ni spoke, “No. I’d feel guilty for taking something so precious for free. Furthermore, I hope that you can prioritize my needs when I need your forging skills in the future. Master Tang, I apologize for being impolite earlier, and don’t you address me as ‘ma’am’ anymore.”
Tang Wulin unabashedly received the merit points she transferred. It was not a hundred but five hundred merit points. Actually, the elevation done on the gun barrel for five hundred merit points was not expensive.
Long Yuxue sent Lu Ni, who was still unwilling to part, away. She closed the forging room’s door and looked at Tang Wulin with a burning gaze.
Tang Wulin felt slightly uncomfortable from her stare. “Ma’am, what’s going on with you?”
Long Yuxue suddenly spoke with rage in her voice, “Why didn’t you tell me earlier?”
Tang Wulin was taken aback and spoke with slight helplessness, “Would you believe me if I had told you that I was a Saint Craftsman?”
“No,” Long Yuxue replied without the slightest hesitation. “It’s one thing whether I believe you or not, another thing altogether whether you’re telling me the truth. It’s not right for you not to tell me!”
“Okay, my bad.” Tang Wulin immediately gave in. It would not be smart of him to quarrel with women.
Long Yuxue suddenly sniggered, then her gaze became gentler as she looked at Tang Wulin. “Thanks for allowing me to profit at your expense. How about if I take a smaller cut then?”
To open a forging workshop with a Saint Craftsman was just pie in the sky. She began to speculate the value of operating such a business in the future.
“Sure, sure! How low are you planning to go?” Tang Wulin immediately agreed without the slightest hesitation. Of course, it pained his heart to see his earnings diminish.
“You wish!” Long Yuxue giggled, turned around, and left after she opened the door. “Lil’ Tang, put in more effort, okay.”
“This woman is truly…” Tang Wulin could not help feeling frustrated.
Long Yuxue was almost in a trot as she came over to the operations headquarters. She had free access to the place as the deputy commissioner of the Secret Service.
“Long Yuxue reporting!” She exclaimed aloud upon ringing the doorbell.
“Come in!” Long Tianwu’s deep voice was heard.
The door swung open and Long Yuxue dashed into the room in high spirits.
“Father, I have something to tell you,” said Long Yuxue with joy.
Long Tianwu’s expression dulled. “It’s working time now so you should address me as ‘sir’.” He was slightly astonished to find his usually stoic daughter becoming so spirited today.
Long Yuxue immediately felt her excitement dampened, so she gave a dissatisfied humph and spoke, “It’s fine if you don’t want to hear about it. Don’t regret this in the future!”
Long Tianwu was stunned for a moment. He could not help smiling as he spoke, “Little girl, what is it? Tell me quickly.”
Long Yuxue turned her head to the side and spoke with a slight arrogance, “I’m not telling you about it anymore. I’m leaving, sir.” She turned around upon saying that and prepared to leave.
Long Tianwu stood up and burst out laughing. “Alright, my precious daughter. There’s no outsider here. Father was being a little strict earlier, and I’m sorry.”
Long Yuxue then calmed down and spoke, “Father, let me tell you a pieced of good news. We’ve found ourselves a treasure.”
“Hmm?” Long Tianwu looked at his daughter in puzzlement.
Long Yuxue sniggered. “It’s Tang Wulin!”
“Tang Wulin? What’s with him?” Long Tianwu said, “I thought he’s undergoing special training with you. Did you discover something new about him?”
Long Yuxue answered, “It’s truly a new discovery. Do you know that he’s also a blacksmith?”
Long Tianwu spoke, “Every soul master with the ambition to become a battle armor master will also develop an ability that is related to battle armors. This is not something new! Only that there are not many who choose to forge.”
Long Yuxue spoke, “Do you know what his blacksmith rank is then?”
Long Tianwu spoke, “Judging by your expression, I think his forging level should be quite impressive. Could it be that he’s a rank-5 blacksmith? Can he perform spirit forging already? It’s truly impressive at his age.”
Long Yuxue demurred and pouted her rosy lips in discontentment. She then said, “Is your daughter a person that is so easily impressed? What’s a little spirit forging to me?”
Long Tianwu could not help smiling and said, “What’s a little spirit forging for you, huh? Do you know how difficult it is to do spirit forging… Wait, what do you mean?” An astonished expression appeared on Long Tianwu’s face.
Long Yuxue giggled and nodded. She spoke, “That’s right. He can do more than spirit forging. He can do soul forging and he’s a rank-7 Saint Craftsman. He is definitely the youngest rank-7 Saint Craftsman forging grandmaster in the history of the forging world!”
Long Tianwu drew in a cold breath, yet he was not thrilled. On the contrary, he was quiet.
“What’s wrong, Father? It’s a good thing! Shouldn’t you be happy about it?” Long Yuxue asked in puzzlement.
Long Tianwu heaved a sigh. “If it had been another person, I’d be extremely happy because it’s genuinely a joyous occasion for our Blood God Army. However, Tang Wulin’s stature is a little peculiar.”
“His stature?” Long Yuxue looked at her father.
Long Tianwu spoke, “He possesses a very powerful fighting ability with a powerful bloodline. He’s also a rank-7 Saint Craftsman. Where do you think such an outstanding young man is cultivated?”
Long Yuxue answered, “Isn’t he chosen and sent by the Tang Sect?”
Long Tianwu spoke, “The Tang Sect is incapable of cultivating such a talented person. He is exceptionally endowed by the heavens and is even god’s favored person. He will certainly be a towering personality on the continent in the future. Moreover, he’s handsome, so Father believes that he is very appealing. Yet, I must warn you to stay far away from him. Father can only hope that you remain safe and sound.”
Long Yuxue was all confused. “Father, what are you saying? I don’t understand.”
Long Tianwu spoke with a deep voice, “I’ve verified his stature with the Tang Sect. Tang Wulin is the leader of the current Shrek Seven Monsters from Shrek Academy. Do you understand now?”
Long Yuxue was quivering uncontrollably upon hearing her father’s words.
She had listened to too many stories about Shrek Academy and the Shrek Seven Monsters ever since she was young. She had never expected the youth, who addressed her as ‘ma’am’ and had a thirst for knowledge, to unsuspectingly be a current Shrek Seven Monster.
“Shrek City was destroyed and Shrek Academy has fallen. He is duty bound to the academy as a current Shrek Seven Monster. Tang Sect’s Douluo Hall Hall Master sent him over with only two objectives. One is to nurture him while the other is to ensure his successful enlistment in the army. Shrek was destroyed, so their adversaries are targeting Shrek Academy’s students. Obviously, these people are waiting to cash in on the golden opportunity.”
