Chapter 995: Unreconciled To
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The Bluesilver Impaling Array with the enhancement of the Bluesilver Emperor Overlord Transformation was very powerful. The additional protection it granted was immense.
Just when Tang Wulin thought that he could take it easy for a while, he suddenly sensed danger approaching from an unknown source.
Without hesitating, he engaged his thrusters once more, and he dared not hold anything back. The Dragon Core within his body swiftly sank into and merged with his soul power vortex. All the Bluesilver Emperor vines had turned golden in an instant.
“Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding!” Hearing a series of quick, consecutive colliding sounds, Tang Wulin was shocked when he realized that his huge patch of Bluesilver Emperor vines, which formed the Bluesilver Impaling Array, was being cut away. The boomerang with five soul rings flickering on it was already very close to him.
With the enhancement of his Dragon Core’s bloodline power, Tang Wulin’s Bluesilver Emperor vines could prevent themselves from being cut into two, but they were still flicked away from the impact of the boomerang. On the boomerang, the first, second and third soul ring shone brightly. Surprisingly, His opponent was unleashing all three soul skills at once.
Nevertheless, the Golden Dragon King bloodline-infused Bluesilver Emperor was still tough, and it greatly weakened the powers of the boomerang. The terrifying destructive strength even made the air tremble. A warped glow shone around the boomerang.
Tang Wulin reversed the direction of his spear and thrust toward the boomerang. However, the boomerang’s fourth soul ring shone brightly in an instant.
The boomerang suddenly turned from silvery white in color to an incandescent hue. It was as if it was lit by a dazzling flame. Tang Wulin was incredulous when he saw that his mecha’s spear had instantly split into two upon touching the boomerang. Even the Bluesilver Emperor vines which shot up swiftly under his control were all swatted away. The rapidly spinning boomerang had reached his mecha in a blink. Its target was the control room he was in.
‘This is too much!’
Fortunately, Ling Wuyue’s mecha was hindered by the Bluesilver Impaling Array and dared not close in on him. Otherwise, Tang Wulin would not have had a spare arm to deal with her.
The boomerang flickering with incandescent light emanated a peerless aura, and the air around it was intensely distorted. Although it was unable to cut the Bluesilver Emperor vines that had been infused with the Golden Dragon King bloodline power, its innate, unusual vibrating force was able to swat away the vines. It had only slowed down ever so slightly when it reached Tang Wulin.
Only half of the spear was left in his hands and the boomerang was upon him. He could not dodge it. The sound from the damaged thrusters was echoing through Tang Wulin’s ears.
The spectators were already cheering. Everyone was certain they were witnessing a melee mecha’s imminent defeat.
At the same time, they were also deeply impressed by the boomerang mecha master. It was simply mind-blowing for someone to be able to use boomerangs with such masterful skill.
However, at this moment, nobody heard the sigh coming from inside Tang Wulin’s mecha control room.
“Clang!” Tang Wulin’s mecha control room’s protective barrier shattered.
A golden claw reached out from within the control room.
Compared to the more than five-meter-long boomerang, this claw was not that large nor did it have the majestic aura of its opponent. However, the instant the boomerang reached him, the claw clenched. With a crisp ‘clang!’, the flickering incandescent boomerang…came to an abrupt halt!
Time seemed to have stopped in that instant. The expressions of the spectators who had thought that the outcome of the battle had been decided froze.
What was going on? Why did a hand reach out from the insides of the mecha and stop the attack in this mecha battle?
It was a common tactic to block an attack with the mecha’s protective barrier and alloy armor. However, this was their first time seeing someone breaking their own mecha’s defenses to block the attack with their hand!
Ling Wuyue’s long-range mecha stopped in midair. The glow of the boomerang intensified. However, regardless of how strongly it flickered, it could not break free of the much smaller Golden Dragon Claw.
‘I didn’t want to have to do this!’ Tang Wulin sighed inwardly. In the next moment, a towering figure appeared behind his melee mecha.
“My god, what is that?” The spectators’ stand broke out in a series of surprised exclamations. Ling Wuyue’s mecha tossed out the two boomerangs without hesitation.
However, the gigantic figure, more than sixty-meters tall, had no intention of blocking the boomerangs as they drew closer. It allowed them to hit itself, and the two boomerangs bounced off its body like toys.
The immense figure suddenly accelerated and roared in Ling Wuyue’s direction.
The furious, deafening roar rocked the entire competition ground, blocking out all other sounds. Long Wuyue’s long-range mecha seemed stunned. In the next moment, the gigantic figure’s tail swept across the battleground and lashed mercilessly against Ling Wuyue’s mecha.
Ling Wuyue was truly unprepared for this. As one of the Blood God Army’s ace mecha masters, she was an expert in mecha operating who lived up to the name.
However, she was only allowed to use a basic mecha that was standard for this competition. It had limited soundproofing qualities, and it did not allow her to unleash her true strength.
She could only look on as her own mecha was shattered, and she was sent out of the competition.
From its appearance to the end of the match, the Overlord Dragon had been on the competition ground for no more than ten seconds. However, those ten short seconds were enough to raise the same thought in all the spectators’ heads.
‘Unfair! This is definitely unfair!’
He was clearly at a disadvantage in the mecha battle. However, he had relied on this terrifying giant beast that came out of nowhere. This was a mecha battle! Yet, what Little Tang used was not a mecha’s power.
Tang Wulin was also helpless. He understood that he was no match for his opponent in terms of mecha operating. However, it was not really unfair in some sense. What truly threatened him was his opponent’s martial soul and not the standard boomerangs. Normal boomerangs could not possibly tear his Bluesilver Emperor vines.
However, no matter the outcome, he genuinely admired this opponent of his.
This was his first time being pushed to a tight corner since the start of the competition. The opponent he met today was truly formidable. Not only did she have great control over her mecha, it was more important to note that her martial soul was also a force to be reckoned with. The combination of the two high-frequency vibrating boomerangs and her martial soul boomerang was akin to an arm directing the fingers. From the start of the match, she had been dominating Tang Wulin until the end. Her third boomerang was also used with great dexterity and preternatural swiftness.
Even though Tang Wulin had been very cautious, he could not unleash his untested spearing techniques.
Tang Wulin had noticed his own problems and shortcomings. Even though he was booed by many, he still felt incomparable relief. He never thought that a person could hone her skills to such an extent. He had been sparing no effort in trying to master the Thousand Accusing Fingers, but now it seemed that his methods had been too routine. Spearing techniques were not all about marching forward bravely. Before he could do that, he first had to further strengthen his own grasp of the basics.
Having thoroughly thought about all this, Tang Wulin quickly disconnected from the Star Dou Battle Network after he had exited the competition space.
After he had returned to the dorm, he grabbed his Golden Dragon Spear and ran to the army’s training grounds. He suddenly realized that there were some areas in which he needed more practice.
Wearing a military uniform which covered her pretty figure, Ling Wuyue’s expression was extremely sour.
In a round-robin tournament, it was nothing to lose a single battle. However, this loss that she suffered made her feel particularly aggrieved.
