Tang Wulin’s dragon roar shook and dispersed the world destroyer wave but he was incapable of stopping Jiang Wuyue from dashing forward with his Domineering Golden Dragon Body.
Just then, the Golden Dragon Shocks the Earth appeared. Eight golden dragons bored out from underneath Jiang Wuyue commanded by Tang Wulin. The golden dragons gave Jiang Wuyue’s gigantic body a powerful shove throwing him up by seven or eight meters.
Yet, the World Destroyer Overlord Force had shown itself to be Jiang Wuyue’s sixth soul skill. Jiang Wuyue’s direction was shifted, but he only slowed down for a moment. His outspread wings were diverting his body into dashing toward Tang Wulin once again.
Having slowed down Jiang Wuyue’s attack, Tang Wulin had adequate time to prepare himself for the follow-up attack. He placed his left leg in front and right leg behind as he lunged forward with his spear before his body.
At the same time, the battle armor on his body turned reflective. The Dragon Core’s radiance shone brightly on his chest while the explosive energy shook its surroundings accompanied by his dragon’s roar.
The World Destroyer Overlord Force lashed against Tang Wulin’s Domineering Golden Dragon Body and his spear. Jiang Wuyue’s massive body paused in mid-air and was suspended in a ghastly manner.
On the other hand, Tang Wulin’s entire body was thrown back by the powerful impact that he plowed through the ground and left behind two deep trenches in the ground.
Yet, Tang Wulin’s upper body was unusually stable as he was sliding back. The Dragon Moon battle armor that covered his body was shimmering with radiance. The energy absorbed from the Domineering Golden Dragon Body was triggered. He raised the Golden Dragon Spear in his hand and pointed toward Jiang Wuyue who had remained suspended in the air after the collision.
A golden giant dragon leaped out from the Golden Dragon Spear at the sound of a valiant dragon’s roar. He unleashed the Golden Dragon Soars to the Heaven which was impressive.
The vision before Jiang Wuyue was all black as his body was shaking violently all over from the massive quake at present. In the next moment, the darkness turned into a light but his body was devoured by the golden light as well.
A shadow flashed once and an electronic voice was heard, “Your body has sustained damages over seventy percent. You have lost. 0-1.”
Jiang Wuyue discovered that he was at the same spot earlier, in front of the stadium, when all the pain he felt suddenly vanished.
‘I’ve lost just like that?”
He did not devote all his effort nor exerted all his strength for fear of hurting Tang Wulin during the previous one-on-one fight. However, it was different this time. He had lost unequivocally because he had even launched his strongest hidden ability, and yet he was defeated by a blow from Tang Wulin’s spear.
Jiang Wuyue was in a daze when he heard Tang Wulin muttering to himself on the opposite side, “This is not worth a thousand coins. It ended too soon.”
‘Too soon? What do you mean by too soon?’ Jiang Wuyue wished that he could snarl at Tang Wulin, yet, as a loser, he felt that he had utterly lost the authority to do so.
A five-ring Soul King annihilated him, a six-ring Soul Emperor. He had always assumed that no one of the same ranks was worthy of being his opponent. Yet, this person managed to do it despite being a rank lower!
He was unwilling to accept his defeat and his will to fight remained strong as ever. Yet, he had no choice but to acknowledge that he had lost. Tang Wulin won fair and square, and it was purely due to the disparity between their strengths. He had lost to Tang Wulin’s absolute power. How powerful was this guy actually?
“I’m leaving,” said Jiang Wuyue sullenly.
Tang Wulin hastily caught up to him. “Feeling gloomy?”
“Hmm.” Jiang Wuyue did not have any intention to conceal his mood.
Tang Wulin spoke, “The issue is with our bloodlines. Your bloodline is greatly affected by my bloodline. There’s utterly no way you can express your true fighting capacity. We shouldn’t have been each other’s opponent. If we were partners instead, you’ll be even more powerful. I’m not necessarily stronger than you when it comes to your true inner strength.”
Jiang Wuyue scratched his head as he recalled the terrifying amplification effect on him cast by Tang Wulin’s Golden Dragon Rage Domain. “That’s true. What a waste that there’s no team battle this time. Otherwise, we can register as brothers and be undefeated.”
Tang Wulin was laughing to himself in his heart. Jiang Wuyue was truly a carefree person for he had recovered from his defeat so soon.
“That’s right! We can form a team if there’s a two-on-two battle.” Tang Wulin could not help missing Gu Yuena once again when he thought of the two-on-two battle. Who else would be a better match for him for the two-on-two battles? Was he truly hoping that she would complement him as a team? Or was he hoping that she would remain amnesic and forever depend on him?
His relationship with Gu Yuena had always been complicated, especially when he thought about the Gu Yuena now who was like a combination of Gu Yue and Na’er.
The present Gu Yuena was more like Na’er as Na’er had been so strongly attached to him in the past. Yet, Tang Wulin felt that she was essentially Gu Yue. What happened in between?
It remained a puzzle in his heart.
However, the moment she appeared right before him, using her body to protect him when he had lost all hope, Tang Wulin knew it was her. Whether she was Gu Yue or Na’er, her love for him did not change.
‘I must work hard to become a major as soon as possible!’ Tang Wulin clenched his fists tight. He could return to visit her once he became a major.
Tang Wulin did not log out from the battle network. He headed over to the mecha arena for a tryout since he was already here.
The situation at the mecha arena was the same as the soul master’s battle room. The payment and entry procedures were the same except that there was an additional process to choose either close combat or a long-range attack mecha.
Without the slightest hesitation, Tang Wulin chose…
He discovered that he was already inside a mecha when he appeared on the competition stage. The instrument panel inside the mecha showed that it was just a standard mecha. Tang Wulin could tell from the complexity of the instruments that he was in a yellow mecha. He could see that the mecha was pure white all over on the internal display screen. It had a soul cannon and was equipped with a protective shield. That was all the equipment.
Just a soul cannon!
Meanwhile, a shadow flashed once on the opposite side as a mecha appeared. The mecha appeared to be slightly bigger, thicker and heavier than Tang Wulin’s. It held an epee. It was a close combat mecha! Its equipment did not seem much better than Tang Wulin’s either.
Tang Wulin could not help smiling to himself as this form of mecha battle was rather interesting actually.
He adjusted the soul cannon in his hand and familiarized himself with the controls inside the mecha.
The countdown was heard at this moment.
“Three, two, one, begin!”
The opposite mecha had already dashed toward Tang Wulin akin to a bulldozer shoving its way soon after the word ‘begin’ was heard.
Standard mecha. Close combat model. Height: twenty meters. Weight: eight tons.
Standard mecha. Long-range model. Height: ten meters. Weight: six point five tons.
Tang Wulin immediately maneuvered his mecha into raising its hand to shoot a cannonball at his opponent before turning around to run as he watched his opponent dashing swiftly toward him.
Distance is undoubtedly the most important factor that separates a long-range mecha from a close combat mecha.
The cannonball’s color was orange. It accelerated instantly and shot straight toward the close combat mecha after it was blasted into the air.
The close combat mecha was extremely agile in its reaction. Its body swayed gently as if it was about to slip, but only its body was tilted. With its left hand, it pushed against the ground to dodge the cannonball.
Its speed did not reduce by much as it continued to dash in Tang Wulin’s direction. The propeller on its back was not activated yet.
‘The opponent’s execution is rather impressive!’
Tang Wulin thought to himself. At the same time, he turned around and blasted a few rounds continuously using the soul cannon. “Bang, bang, bang.”
The close combat mecha seemed calm as its body dodged left and right continuously. Its movements were agile and stable. When Tang Wulin turned around to launch an attack, it seized the opportunity to get closer to him. It only took half a second to arrive before Tang Wulin when it used its accelerator. Tang Wulin’s long-range mecha would be in serious trouble if the close combat mecha got too near.
The soul cannon required a three-second recharge period each time it fired ten rounds. Tang Wulin made an estimation of the standard soul cannon in his hand.
