Jiang Wuyue dialed his soul communicator, but a busy tone came from the other end.
“He didn’t answer. I reckon he’s training, his Blood God Bracelet is switched off.” Jiang Wuyue shrugged helplessly.
“I don’t care, you must find him. Otherwise, I’ll assume that the person I fought today was you,” said Ling Wuyue angrily.
“How can you be so unreasonable?” Jiang Wuyue was angered as well.
“Since when have I been reasonable with you? What can you do about it? If you aren’t happy with it, let’s fight it out, one-on-one!” Ling Wuyue was currently at the height of her anger.
“Forget it, I’ve no time for this. You wait here, I’ll try a few more times. I’m telling you, don’t you shift your anger toward him onto me. I’m already helping you by doing this, and this matter has nothing to do with me in the first place, why am I the one paying for what has happened? Besides, don’t go thinking that you’ll win just because you have your mecha, he’s a two-word battle armor master as well, and his strength surpasses even mine. If you guys fought in an ordinary setting, you’d still have no chance of beating him.”
Ling Wuyue snorted. “You focus on contacting him.” Her anger had died down somewhat. The incident today truly had nothing to do with Jiang Wuyue.
Jiang Wuyue tried Tang Wulin’s number a few more times, but still, nobody answered the call.
Tang Wulin had switched off his Blood God Bracelet at the moment. He hated to be disturbed by others while he was cultivating. Currently, he was in the gravity training room. He wielded his Golden Dragon Spear and stabbed at the air in front of him in rapid succession.
There were a few moves that were the basics of spearing. It was the training method he discovered back when he was with the Tang Sect. Stabbing was one of the basic movements.
Stab, hack, hit, and point. These were all spearing techniques.
After his fight with Ling Wuyue today, Tang Wulin realized what he lacked the most in were the basics. If he wanted to unleash the Thousand Accusing Fingers, he would have to perfect these basic moves first. He would understand the Thousand Accusing Finger’s secrets better by having a firm foundation.
That was why he was in the gravity training room. He intensified the gravitational force five times. He wielded his Golden Dragon Spear and practiced his basics.
On average, he could stab thirty times per minute. Every stab he made was focused. He devoted all his energy and attention to feeling the spear in his hands. He did not utilize his soul power or bloodline power. Instead, he simply stabbed at the air as he accustomed himself with the sensation of stabbing with his Golden Dragon Spear.
He did not know how long he would have to practice before he could truly find the feeling. However, he believed that his basics would be strengthened as long as he continued cultivating.
All he did was stab. He practiced no other movement as he repeated his actions without knowing what exhaustion meant. With his stamina, it was easy to sustain such cultivation. The natural circulation of his Dragon Core provided him the strength and rejuvenated his body. Even with the gravitational force that was five times stronger, the only impact it had was a slight increase in his energy consumption. It was the greatest challenge the gravity training room could provide.
Tang Wulin was not aware of the passing of time. When he finally felt his arms go sore, he stopped as he had a profound feeling during the process of stabbing with his Golden Dragon Spear.
He heaved a sigh and wiped the sweat off his face. He nodded with satisfaction. ‘I’m feeling something. I’ll go rest and continue later.’
He had another match after this. Naturally, he could not keep cultivating here.
He walked out of the training room. When he reactivated his Blood God Bracelet, it vibrated.
“Wuyue, what’s up?” Tang Wulin picked up the call and could not help but asked with puzzlement.
“Don’t you what’s up me. You almost caused my death. Where are you?” said Jiang Wuyue, seemingly puffing his final breaths.
“Huh?” said Tang Wulin with astonishment. “What’s wrong? I’m at the gravity training room. Where are you?”
“Wait for me at the door. We’re coming over right away.”
The call ended. Tang Wulin was truly befuddled. What is happening? Could this be about his surrender yesterday? That could not be! Jiang Wuyue would not go so far as to say that he almost died because he yielded to him.
He wiped off his sweat. In no time, the two of them ran toward him rashly and in much haste.
The person running in front was a female officer. She was tall, had a slender build, but her shoulders were a tad broad. Also, she looked hale and hearty. Her eyes were brimming with vigor, and her short hair was spiked up like steel needles. She was valiant and heroic in bearing.
Jiang Wuyue followed behind her, but his eyes were lifeless. He looked depressed, even.
“You’re Tang Wulin? Are you Little Tang?” Ling Wuyue had closed the distance in a few steps and the questions came popping out of her mouth.
Tang Wulin was slightly astonished. He looked at Jiang Wuyue.
Jiang Wuyue said with a wry smile, “Did you face a boomerang-wielding opponent in the mecha match?”
Tang Wulin blurted, “How did you know that?”
Jiang Wuyue pointed at Ling Wuyue. “That was her. Since when did you possess the Overlord Dragon’s spirit soul? Why didn’t I know about it? She’s been looking for you.”
Ling Wuyue looked at Tang Wulin with keen sparkling eyes. There were no flames of anger in them, only insatiable curiosity instead.
No matter how she looked at him, Tang Wulin looked to be in his twenties only. He was handsome, she would give him that. His eyes were even more beautiful than hers. If he had long hair, he would have been a beautiful woman without peer.
He also had a slender build and straight back. Ling Wuyue was a very picky person, but she could not find any fault with Tang Wulin’s appearance.
“That’s right, I’m Little Tang. You’re the one using the boomerangs? Ling Wuyue?” asked Tang Wulin.
Ling Wuyue snorted. “Yeah, that’s me!”
Tang Wulin proceeded to ask, “And you’re looking for me?”
Ling Wuyue responded, “I’ve come for a rematch, an actual combat rematch. I’ve not reconciled with my defeat yet.”
This time, it was Ling Wuyue’s turn to be astonished. She had expected Tang Wulin to turn her down initially. She did not expect to see eagerness in his eyes at this moment.
Jiang Wuyue said, “Are you satisfied now, mad woman? My business here is done, I’ll leave you two to your games.”
“If you call me ‘mad woman’ again, I’ll rip your lungs out,” Ling Wuyue said without a hint of mercy.
Jiang Wuyue rolled his eyes. “It’s best if I don’t meet you ever. I wouldn’t even want to see you if you hadn’t contacted me first. I’m leaving.” In a huff, he turned around and fled the scene.
Tang Wulin had been cultivating his spearing techniques for a full three hours. Ling Wuyue had been pestering Jiang Wuyue for three hours to call Tang Wulin. Jiang Wuyue had no other choice. There was no way he would provoke this person! He almost went crazy after being tormented for three hours.
Looking at the fleeing Jiang Wuyue, Tang Wulin asked, “Where shall we go?” He had gotten used to his status in the Blood God Battalion and no longer addressed other people as senior officer. Ling Wuyue learned of Tang Wulin’s history from Jiang Wuyue during the time they waited for Tang Wulin to answer the call.
“To the mecha combat area. Follow me.”
The Blood God Army was well equipped with various amenities. Naturally, they had a mecha combat area as well, and it was state-of-the-art.
The mecha combat area was much larger than the combat room in which Tang Wulin had sparred with Jiang Wuyue previously. Its diameter was two hundred meters and the ceiling was more than seventy meters high. It was built below the ground which explained why Tang Wulin had not seen such a building on the surface.
They needed to pay with merit points to use the mecha combat area. Ling Wuyue paid the required amount and walked in with Tang Wulin.
“Jiang Wuyue told me that your defenses are strong. I won’t be holding back later.” Ling Wuyue looked at Tang Wulin with keen sparkling eyes.
“Okay.” Tang Wulin’s reply was curt and direct as usual. He anticipated Ling Wuyue’s strength to be at her peak. With her mecha operating skills, she must be extremely powerful if she was operating her own mecha.
Naturally, Tang Wulin did not plan on fighting her with a mecha. That was, in fact, asking for a beating. He would face her in his strongest mode and take the opportunity to hone his spearing techniques.
The two of them came to a halt two hundred meters away from each other. Ling Wuyue took a deep breath. Her initially wild eyes quickly focused and had surprisingly turned icy cold in a short time. She was an impatient person, but that did not mean that she would act the same way during a battle. In fact, she acted just the opposite as she was able to keep calm during a battle. She had relied on her own strength to become an ace mecha master!
It must be known that the Blood God Army’s ace mecha master was starkly different from other ace mecha masters.
She raised an arm and tossed. A ball of black light appeared before her. The black shadow quickly enlarged and turned into an impressive-looking, eight-meter tall, black mecha.
Although Tang Wulin was psychologically prepared, he drew a sharp cold breath when he saw Ling Wuyue operating a black mecha.
A black mecha was not terrifying in itself. What was terrifying was that it was in the hands of an ace mecha master.
Whether it was their speeds, weapons, equipment, or their offensive and defensive abilities, a black mecha and a standard mecha were as different as the skies and the earth. It was the difference between a ten-thousand-year soul ring and a ten-year soul ring!
Faced with such an opponent, Tang Wulin’s gaze focused immediately. He gathered all his attention and a faint golden glow arose all over his body.
