The smile on Blood Seven’s face faded quickly. Blood Five was stoic as a statue. Blood Six displayed shock in her eyes. Blood Three seemed as if she was lost in thought.
“Combat strength that’s way ahead of your peers. What’re those golden light rings?” Blood Seven turned and asked Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin answered vaguely, “It’s my bloodline power. Those that show up later are my soul rings.”
A smile appeared on Blood Six’s face. “Interesting. The Black Empress was gravely injured, even the Abyss King was drawn out. The final one must be the Mei Empress, right? The price that we have to pay each time a Goblin Empress appears isn’t small. Fortunately, she’s suppressed by the seal and can only project less than one-third of her powers here. Otherwise…”
Less than one-third of her powers? Tang Wulin inhaled sharply. Her less than one-third strength had almost killed him instantly. If she had used all her powers, how terrifying would she have been?
The Mei Empress? The Mo Mei’s Empress? Tang Wulin immediately thought of the Mo Mei whom he had faced before.
Blood Eight glanced at Blood Six and Blood Seven. “You guys should know that this isn’t what I intend to show you.”
Blood Three nodded. “It truly is strange. Although I shouldn’t ask anything personal about a soul master, this has something to do with the abyssal tunnel. Young man, I must ask you this. What method did you use to suck away all the abyssal energy? Where did the absorbed abyssal energy go?”
Tang Wulin stayed silent for a while. In truth, he knew that the Golden Dragon Spear’s strange behavior would have been noticed by others sooner or later. He had thought of a pretext before this. The simple reason why he was not afraid that others might see the Golden Dragon Spear’s worth was because he was the only one who could use it. He did not need to worry about someone snatching it away from him.
“Yes, my Golden Dragon Spear has a special attribute which is that it’s able to devour the energy of various living beings. I only found that out after I came here. Surprisingly, it’s also capable of devouring the energy from the abyssal creatures. It can devour their energies, filter them, and channel them to me so that I can continue fighting.”
What Tang Wulin said was true, but he did not reveal all as he kept some details to himself. He did not mention that the absorbed energies might be used to improve his own cultivation base. After all, he was not familiar with everyone here. He was not completely sure if he could trust the people here. Telling half-truths was the best course of action when faced with such a crowd. Of course, he had been taught by the few old demons.
“Can I have a look?” Blood Seven asked eagerly.
Tang Wulin nodded. He wiped his forehead with his right hand. A golden light flashed and the Golden Dragon Spear was already in his hands. He wielded it with both hands and presented it to the people.
Blood Seven subconsciously touched the Golden Dragon Spear. The instant he touched it, his expression changed, and he pulled his hand back as if he had been electrocuted.
He could clearly feel a powerful sense of suppression appearing within his bloodline when he touched the spear. It was an uncomfortable feeling, and it even shook his spirits somewhat.
Blood Three was not as reckless. She said with astonishment, “This must be a weapon connected to your bloodline. Did you forge it yourself?”
Tang Wulin shook his head. “I don’t know where it came from. I think it has been inside me all this while. When I reached a certain rank in my cultivation, it appeared naturally.”
Blood Five finally opened his mouth, “Associated weapon?”
Tang Wulin did not know what associated weapons were, but from the words’ semantics, the Golden Dragon Spear seemed to fit such a description.
Blood Five raised his hand and held the Golden Dragon Spear. His body shook as well, but he did not react like Blood Seven whose arm practically shot backward. However, his eyebrows were still raised as he seemed to be lost in thought.
After a while, he let go of the Golden Dragon Spear. He shook his head lightly. “There’s no way.”
Blood Three nodded. “I agree, there’s no way we can replicate this. What a shame. But, the Mei Empress and the Abyss King had attacked him consecutively. It’s obvious what a threat his presence was to them. We must protect him closely from now on. That’s right, we haven’t even asked your name yet.”
“Senior officer, my name’s Tang Wulin.” Tang Wulin put the Golden Dragon Spear away. With his quick wits, he naturally understood what they meant.
Blood Six asked, “Have you always cultivated with Tang Sect?”
Tang Wulin shook his head. “I graduated from Shrek Academy.” It was true. After he had obtained his two-word battle armor, it was equivalent to graduating from the academy. The only issue was that the Shrek Academy no longer existed.
Blood Five’s body shook as he said with a lowered tone, “Shrek Academy?”
A complicated emotion flashed past the depths of Blood Five’s eyes. His hands tightened into fists subconsciously. Blood Three’s expression grew grim as well.
“When did you leave the academy?” asked Blood Three.
A tinge of sadness flashed past Tang Wulin’s eyes. “Recently, just before the academy was hit by the disaster.”
“What happened?” Blood Five took a step forward and suddenly held Tang Wulin by the collar. His aura was clearly enraged. The entire lobby seemed to have erupted in raging air flow.
“Blood Five!” Blood Three bellowed.
It was only now Blood Five retracted his aura. He loosened his grip on Tang Wulin, but he continued in a low voice, “Tell me, what exactly happened to the academy? How can it… How could it…”
Tang Wulin could tell that Blood Five had close ties with the academy. A bitterness showed at the edges of his lips. “It was too sudden. Everything happened too fast. It was a terrorist attack that had long been planned…” He recounted his experience to them.
The listeners’ expressions darkened. It was especially true of Blood Three and Blood Five. Their faces were ghastly pale.
“You’re one of the current Shrek Seven Monsters? Is the Holy Spirit Douluo still alive?” asked Blood Three.
Tang Wulin nodded silently. In the next moment, Blood Three’s tears burst forth like a fountain. Blood Eight hastily rushed toward her and gave her a hug. “Sister Three, don’t be sad.”
Blood Five’s fists cracked. “Good, very good! Godkiller-ranked fixed soul ammunition. The Holy Spirit Cult! Very good!”
A killing intent seemed to burst forth from his body. The entire lobby was quivering slightly. Blood Six could hardly keep calm. Shrek Academy was not the only place that was destroyed. The Tang Sect’s headquarters was also destroyed!
However, Tang Wulin’s feelings were even more intricate. Although he felt sad, he was somewhat relieved as well. At the very least, he had met people with the same views here. Without a doubt, Blood Three and Blood Five were related to Shrek. They were most probably graduates of Shrek whereas Blood Six was from the Tang Sect. These people might very well be his mainstay in the future. The people in the Blood God Battalion were experts with the ranks of Title Douluos!
“Teacher Yun Ming has handed over the task of restoring Shrek to you guys. So, you must work hard!” Blood Five raised his hands and grabbed Tang Wulin’s shoulders tightly.
Teacher Yun Ming?
Blood Five shut his eyes. No tears flowed out from them, but his killing intent had turned to grief. “Back then, when I was still in the academy, Teacher Yun Ming was my teacher.”
This statement alone was enough to explain his current emotion.
Blood Three had also taken control of her tears presently. Her voice was shaking still. “My name’s Yun Lan. Yun Ming was my cousin, and the only family I had.”
Tang Wulin was shaken. Although he could tell that these two were related to the academy, he had not expected them to be that close. No wonder the Amorous Douluo had sent him here. As expected, he had his objective.
Blood Eight held Blood Three’s hand, “Sister, don’t be sad. Shrek Academy will certainly be restored to its former glory.”
Blood Three cried silently. She was unable to speak.
At this moment, the elevator doors, which Tang Wulin and Blood Eight had stepped out of earlier, slid open. Two people walked in.
The one in front was an old man. He appeared to be covered in a peculiar energy shockwave as if his entire person was enveloped in the elements. When he saw him, Tang Wulin felt his heart and body tremble. This person’s aura was truly powerful. It was as if the origin energy was resonating within his body.
He looked old with his white mane, but his eyes were clear. He had emerald pupils which struck some as strange.
“What’s wrong, Sister Three?” the first person he saw when he came in was the silently grieving Blood Three.
The other person who trailed behind him was slender and handsome. His long black hair fell loosely behind him. Everyone wore white military uniforms. The few people whom Tang Wulin had met, the old man included, were major generals based on the insignias on their shoulders. However, the person who walked behind the old man had three golden stars on his shoulder. He was… a general?
A federal general?
