Chapter 965: General Blood One
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
He was definitely a high-ranking official! This officer looked to be in his thirties at most.
The highest position in Douluo’s federal army was the Military Minister, a four-star senior general, followed by the commander-in-chief who was also a four-star senior general. Below them were a few other generals. In other words, there were only two senior generals in the entire federation. There were not more than ten generals altogether. To his surprise, he was standing in front of one of the few generals. He never expected a federal general to be in the remote Endless Mountains.
Could it be that this was the Blood God Army’s commander? However, even if he was the commander, did that entitle him to be commissioned as a general?
What intrigued Tang Wulin even more was that he could not feel any soul power shockwave from the federal general. He felt every bit like a layperson.
The old man’s gaze fell on Tang Wulin. “Little Eight, have you called us here for this young man?”
Blood Eight nodded. Her nickname was ‘Little Eight’, but she showed no sign of retorting the old man addressing her.
The old man sized up Tang Wulin. He turned to look at the three-star general behind him. “Big brother, is he from your Tang Sect? He has the basics of the Mysterious Heaven Method.”
The Tang Sect? The three-star general was a Tang Sect person?
Tang Wulin’s pupils constricted. Everything he saw and heard today was mind-boggling. Although he was informed that there would be people from the Tang Sect and Shrek Academy, he never expected a Tang Sect three-star general. If word of this got out, how many people would dare oppress the Tang Sect?
The young man known as big brother walked forward. He looked at Tang Wulin and said with a smile, “You’re Wulin, right? Zang Xin has told me about you. Let me introduce you to everyone. Tang Wulin is a disciple of the Tang Sect, a member of the Battle Soul Hall. At the same time, he’s also the leader of the current Shrek Seven Monsters. Wulin, you can call me Blood One, this is Blood Two.”
“Good day, senior officers.” Tang Wulin hastily saluted them.
Blood One waved his hand. “There aren’t that many rules in the Blood God Battalion. If Blood Eight brought you here, there must be something about you that’s worth our attention. Tell us what it is.”
Blood Eight replayed the footage and explained Tang Wulin’s condition at the same time.
Blood Two looked astonished. His gaze toward Tang Wulin also changed.
“Big brother, with regards to Shrek Academy and the Tang Sect, if our help is needed, we won’t reject no matter what,” said Blood Two to Blood One in a lowered voice.
Blood One waved his hand again. “We’re all from the Tang Sect, Shrek Academy, the Battle God Hall, and the Spirit Pagoda. But, ever since we’ve been here, especially when we joined the Blood God Battalion, our lives are no longer our own. They belong to all the living souls on the continent. Regardless of what happened to the Tang Sect, it won’t change this calling of ours. For us, there’s nothing more important than guarding the abyssal tunnel. I’m also pained by the disaster that befell the Tang Sect and Shrek, but I can’t leave this place just because of that incident. We don’t have the right to leave this place. Unless the day comes where we’re able to completely cut off the abyssal tunnel or destroy the abyssal plane, we’ll be guarding this place until we die.”
These words of his were said firmly. The expressions of the Blood Gods turned grim.
Regardless of the happenings of the world, there was nothing more important than guarding this place. Once the abyssal tunnel was broken through by the abyssal creatures, it would truly plunge the people into misery and suffering. It would be difficult to estimate the number of lives sacrificed before the tunnel could be resealed.
No matter how pained and enraged Blood Three and Blood Five were, they could not leave the Blood God Battalion. They had to guard this place against the invaders of another plane.
“Tang Wulin’s condition is truly special. We’ll try and see if we can utilize his Golden Dragon Spear in a more effective way while fighting the abyssal creatures. Wulin, the heavy task of restoring the Tang Sect and Shrek Academy fall on the shoulders of your generation. As a member of the Blood God Battalion, the help we can offer you is to train you consistently to accelerate your growth.”
When he heard Blood One’s words, he could not deny that he was disappointed. The Blood God Battalion had nine experts of Title Douluo rank. They were at least three-word battle armor masters. It was truly a formidable force. If he could obtain their help, it would have been much easier for him to restore Shrek Academy.
However, with the great threat of the abyssal tunnel, there was truly no way that they could help him rebuild Shrek.
As he looked at the silent Tang Wulin, Blood One asked, “Wulin, we know that your Golden Dragon Spear can devour abyssal energy. But, does it have any side effects?”
Tang Wulin shook his head. “There are no side effects. If I absorb too much, I’ll need some time to digest them.”
Blood One nodded. “Very well. From now on, you’re a supernumerary personnel of the Blood God Battalion. You’ll receive orders from the Blood God Battalion and are not to wantonly enter the battlefield. I’ll devise a strategy that’s meant for your condition.”
“Understood,” Tang Wulin responded respectfully.
Blood One looked at the others. “Blood Six, Blood Seven, and Blood Eight, go and guard the tunnel. The tide this time was quite powerful. Wulin has drawn the Mei Empress to attack once, so there’s no way that she’ll attack again during this tide. Wulin, come with me.”
Blood Six, Blood Seven, and Blood Eight left.
Blood One brought Tang Wulin to a door in the center of the lobby. The door opened and he led him in.
The room was not too big, but it was filled with origin energy. The decorations inside were plain and simple. It was only slightly bigger than Tang Wulin’s current room in the dormitories. There was not even a bed. In its place were a few rush cushions.
“Sit.” Blood One pointed at one of the rush cushions.
Tang Wulin sat down.
Blood One sat down opposite him.
“Actually, I’ve known all along that you’d come, and I’ve been keeping an eye on you. Zang Xin had informed me the first opportunity he got before you arrived. You’re even more outstanding than I imagined. When I saw you, I could finally sigh in relief.”
Tang Wulin said nothing. Currently, his heart was heavy. He was only thinking of his failure to obtain the help of the Blood God Army. Hence, the purpose of him coming here to enlist had been fruitless.
Blood One said, “You must be thinking that the reason Zang Xin sent you here was for you to display your strengths and obtain the army’s support to help you in the future when you want to rebuild Shrek and the Tang Sect’s headquarters, am I right? Hence, my words just now must have shattered your hopes.”
Tang Wulin nodded.
Blood One continued, “You’re wrong. We did not send you to the Blood God Army so that you may gain something, but we want you to understand the importance of responsibilities. The Blood God Army’s existence to the Tang Sect was as important as the Demon Island was to Shrek Academy.”
Demon Island? Did he know about Demon Island as well?
Blood One said with a smile, “Yes, I know about the Demon Island. After all, I was a former student of Shrek Academy. To put it more precisely, I was one of the Shrek Seven Monsters together with Yun Ming back then. I was his captain.”
Tang Wulin lifted his head abruptly. His colors drained out of fright.
Captain? He was the Shrek Seven Monster’s captain. Did this not mean that his strength was even more powerful than Atlas Douluo Yun Ming? However, Yun Ming had ended up being the Sea God Pavilion’s Master.
Blood One sighed softly, “It has been a hundred years since then, now that I think about it. A hundred years have just gone by in the blink of an eye. Ever since I came here sixty years ago, I never left. The reason why I didn’t stay on in the academy was because of the Tang Sect. I thought that Yun Ming and the others would be able to guard the academy. I never expected such an incident to occur.”
