Wulin the magician, uncle chef MU YE just let be in secret. Give him the sect cultivation base+1January 15, 2021 at 2:09 am #1427461
What A Coincidence
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Sigh…” Tang Wulin let out a sigh. As a matter of fact, he was extremely willing to be Mu Ye’s disciple. Putting everything aside, Mu Yue’s cooking alone had already won Tang Wulin over. He was sure that his cultivation would improve by leaps and bounds if he continued having access to the good food made by Uncle Chef that often.
However, betraying the Tang Sect for the sake of food alone was ridiculous.
If only Tang Sect had a great chef like Uncle Ye…
As he swallowed a mouthful of saliva, Tang Wulin walked out of the small canteen feeling a little helpless.
Chang Gongyan and Lin Yuhan were no longer there. Zhen Hua and Gu Yue were the only people left.
“Uncle-master.” Tang Wulin called out respectfully.
Zhen Hua smiled gently. “How was it? The talk with him.”
Tang Wulin said a little awkwardly, “I’m afraid I can’t promise Uncle Ye what he wanted so he left. I think he’s probably a little angry.”
Zhen Hua laughed out loud and replied, “Don’t worry, don’t worry. He’s hot-tempered like that. He’s already so old but he’s still behaving like a child! Ignore him, I’ll talk to him later. That being said, I’ve to thank the both of you today, Especially Gu Yue for saving my life!”
Gu Yue shook her head immediately. “No, Your Highness. I did that subconsciously.”
Zhen Hua smiled lightly and replied, “If it wasn’t for your subconscious rescue, I’m afraid I’d be badly injured even if I didn’t die. The sword was too sudden but your response speed was exceedingly fast.”
Feeling shy, Gu Yue held her head down.
Zhen Hua then looked at Tang Wulin and said, “Your performance today wasn’t bad either. I didn’t expect for you to make such an improvement in your Spirit Forging within the past couple of months. You can already complete Creation Spirit Forging and Evil Spirit Forging successfully. That’s great! Continue stabilizing your abilities and firm up your foundations. You need to intently feel the transformation in the alloy when you Spirit Forge. At the same time, you’ll also need to feel the transformation your body is going through during the forging process. These are the things that’ll break you through to the soul-forging level in the future.”
Tang Wulin had plateaued at his current rank since he could never become a true rank-6 blacksmith without first obtaining a four-ringed cultivation base. However, he was already able to Spirit Forge alloys better than most rank-6 blacksmiths. The only thing he had yet to achieve was Fuse Spirit Forging. This was the reason why he could not ascend to the next rank. As for soul forging, he would need an even higher level of soul power to achieve it.
Zhen Hua replied, “Alright, there are still things that I’ll need to handle. Both of you go ahead and do your own thing. Oh yeah, Lin Yuhan asked me to pass this message to you. She wanted to say that she’ll definitely surpass your abilities. Wulin, my boy! You’ll have to work harder, alright?”
After saying goodbye to Zhen Hua, the first thing Tang Wulin did was to sell some of the spirit alloys he forged. To his surprise, the two spirit alloys he forged on the spot today were sold at a high price.
Alloys that went though Creation Spirit Forging and Evil Spirit Forging were very scarce. Before Tang Wulin managed to sell the two alloys to the association, they were already purchased by two blacksmiths who had just elevated to rank-5. They had hoped to elevate their Spirit Forging by researching the two alloys.
Although Tang Wulin amazed the crowd earlier, he barely gained any fame from defeating Lin Yuhan on the spot. However, he did become a popular little genius in the Blacksmith Association.
“Where would you like to go tonight?” Tang Wulin asked Gu Yue after leaving the Blacksmith Association. They would still make it to class as long as they returned by midnight tomorrow.
They temporarily left the mecha at the Blacksmith Association and would come back to get it before they left for Shrek Academy.
Gu Yue replied, “I’m not familiar with Sky Dou City. I’ll accompany you whenever you want to go.”
“Let’s take a stroll then. I like Sky Dou City very much!” Tang Wulin flashed a gentle smile.
The main attraction of Sky Dou City was that there were no skyscrapers and many of its ancient buildings were still well preserved. There were more ancient buildings here compared to any other place in the entire Douluo Continent.
Tang Wulin brought Gu Yue everywhere. They strolled the streets, alleyways, and the old streets. There were quaint stores on both sides of the streets and it made them feel as if they had traveled back to the past.
“Wulin, you really have to be a little more careful now. That evil soul master almost harmed you previously. Shall we return to the academy earlier?” Gu Yue spoke to Tang Wulin after walking for a while.
Tang Wulin smiled as he replied, “Nah, don’t worry. Evil soul masters are very scarce out here, how much of a coincidence would it have to be for them to bump into us?”
“You sure about that?” They heard a cold voice.
Tang Wulin panicked and shifted his body in front of Gu Yue to shield her subconsciously. However, by the tie they realized, the scenery around them had already changed.
The old streets around them suddenly turned into a world of darkness while a dense blood essence washed over his face. In the very next moment, he felt fuzzy in his head and lost consciousness as his head spun.
Then, the dark red glow suddenly weakened and the old streets returned to normal. Even the passing pedestrians did not notice two people disappearing from the street. It was like time had stopped when they disappeared a moment ago.
Tang Wulin shuddered as he woke up from being unconsciousness from the cold and piercing chill.
He subconsciously opened his eyes and to his surprise, there were clouds floating beneath him. He was high in the sky.
Then, he saw Gu Yue just across him with her body lying horizontally. To be more precise, they were both held between someone’s armpits.
Gu Yue’s face was pale and her eyes were still closed. The blood essence was actually from this person while the chilling cold was from the sky above them.
‘Is it an evil soul master?’ Tang Wulin felt helpless as he immediately guessed. It seemed like he had been too careless. Furthermore, he did not expect that this person would target him.
He guessed that this person who flew them into the sky was possibly the evil soul master who attempted to assassinate Zhen Hua earlier. If he was right, the possibility of him and Gu Yue surviving would be minimal.
‘This person’s a Hyper Douluo!’
“You’re quick to wake up!” A cold genderless voice was heard in Tang Wulin’s ear. The sound of that voice alone was enough to make him feel like he was going insane.
Tang Wulin closed his eyes without saying a word. It was useless for him to say anything at this point so he would rather not speak at all.
Right at that moment, an intense weightlessness suddenly hit him, and he could not help but scream. As he opened his eyes, he was shocked to find out that they were already free-falling toward the ground.
They fell quickly and passed through a number of clouds. The intense feeling of weightlessness naturally made people feel a subconscious fear.
Just as they were approximately a hundred meters away from the ground, an intense force lifted and stabilized them in the air. Tang Wulin almost spat out a mouthful of blood from that but before he could do so, both of them fell to the ground.
It was barren land and looking at the color of the sky, it was almost evening. It was then that Tang Wulin got around to take a good look at the evil soul master.
The evil soul master was covered in a tight gray garment. With his head covered, his eyes were the only things visible. They were gray as well but his pupils seemed strange as they were tinged red.
Waving both hands, he tossed Tang Wulin and Gu Yue on the ground.
“Did Spectre die in your hand?” the cold voice questioned Tang Wulin.
“Spectre?” Tang Wulin was stunned momentarily. “I don’t know who that is.”
“You don’t know? Spectre has been missing ever since he boarded the soul train and you’re one of the survivors in the incident,” the evil soul master replied coldly.
Tang Wulin came to a sudden realization. “Are you talking about the person who can soul forge I don’t even know where he went. Do you really think that I could kill him with my cultivation base?”
The evil soul master was stunned. It made sense, this kid was only a three-ringed soul master while Spectre was a six-ringed Soul Emperor. Besides, evil soul masters were slyer compared to ordinary soul masters. This alone would give them enough of an advantage when they go against an ordinary soul master at the same level.
Tang Wulin sat up and realized that he was free. It was not because their captor was being nice but instead, it was because the gap between their cultivation bases was so big that their captor thought it unnecessary to restrict the both of them.
The first thing Tang Wulin did was rush to Gu Yue. He touched her and her breathing was stable. However, she was still unconscious.
He stood upright as he tried to think of a way out. Since this evil soul master kept them alive, it was an indication that they might still be of some use to him. This meant that they might still have a chance of getting out of this alive.
“Senior, why did you capture kids like us?” Tang Wulin asked curiously with unbridled purity and confusion in his eyes.
“Kids? Tang Wulin, Shrek Academy’s outer court class president, first grade class one. Scarlet Dragon Douluo Zhuo Shi’s granddisciple who led you and your companions to defeat second grade class one. You even defeated the Imperial Sun Moon Soul Engineer Academy during the final exam. Am I right?” the cold voice spoke calmly.
Tang Wulin was secretly shocked, he did not expect his captor to investigate him so thoroughly. “Senior, Your Highness. Why’re you investigating an insignificant person like me?”
“Just because you’re insignificant now doesn’t mean that you’ll remain insignificant forever. Isn’t it Shrek’s expertise to train talents like you? What future does Shrek hold if they smother you little kids in a cradle?” the evil soul master said calmly.
Tang Wulin forced a smile. “Are you bullying the weak now?”
“Call Zhen Hua on his soul communicator.” The evil soul master completely ignored what he said.+1January 15, 2021 at 2:13 am #1427462
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Tang Wulin was stunned. His captor only captured them to lure his uncle-master here.
He took out his soul communicator and peeped at the evil soul master. However, Tang Wulin clutched his right hand immediately and crushed his soul communicator.
“Slap!” A slap came toward him like lightning. Tang Wulin did not even stand a chance at avoiding it as he flew from the impact of the slap. The left side of his face was badly swollen and it felt as if he was hit by a soul train moving at full speed. He could only feel a numbness ringing in his head as his ears buzzed.
However, he did not regret it at all. He could not call Zhen Hua’s soul communicator. He would put his uncle-master at risk the moment he did that. On the other hand, if his uncle-master was lured here, he and Gu Yue would lose all their value and die much sooner than they expected.
Tang Wulin’s mind was always exceptionally clear when the odds were against him. This time was no different.
As he hit the ground hard, his head was an utter fuzz and everything around him was a blur. He attempted to stand up but his limbs were not exactly responding to his command. After trying several times, he still ended up face-first on the ground.
The evil soul master shifted his mask and her gray eyes suddenly turned scarlet. Almost immediately, she was already at Tang Wulin’s side.
Squatting down, she extended a finger to wipe off some of the blood at the corner of Tang Wulin’s lips. Then, she removed the lower half of her mask to reveal her delicate chin. Her lips were oddly bright, so bright that it seemed a little strange. Then, she put her finger into her mouth and s----d that single drop of Tang Wulin’s blood into her mouth.
At the very next moment, her body trembled and her pupils shrunk to a size of a needle’s point. She stood up and as she staggered a few steps backward, the look on her face when she looked at Tang Wulin completely changed.
“How is this possible? You’re just an insignificant Soul Elder! How is it possible that you have blood so pure, and a blood essence that’s so rich? That’s great. This is just too great! It’s pure Yang energy from the blood of a boy. Haha, hahaha! That’s great. What’s so great about Zhen Hua? As long as I ingest your blood, I’ll become normal once again. I won’t have to bear the torture of soul forging at the blood sea anymore. Hahahaha! I’ve changed my mind, I’ll s--k you dry, of blood!”
She laughed at the top of her lungs. Her voice was no longer that cold. It was now a lady’s voice.
She stepped forward and as she arrived before Tang Wulin once more, she grabbed him from the ground. “Kid, I bet you didn’t see this coming. Your attempt at protecting Zhen Hua revealed the secret of your blood. Don’t worry, I won’t kill you. I’ll make you my blood servant. Judging by how powerful your bloodline is, you’ll still have a great body for a blood servant even if I s----d out all your blood. Great! This is great! I never expected my luck to be this good.”
She removed an even larger portion of the bottom half from her mask as she spoke, and two extraordinarily ferocious fangs grew out at an alarming rate when her red lips parted.
Tang Wulin attempted to fight back but his body was covered in an unknown chill. No matter how rich his blood essence was, he could not stop the restricting cold.
Then, she licked her fangs with her pink tongue. She was just like a predator that was holding itself back from eating the most delicious food in the world. As she inched closer toward Tang Wulin, a faintly sweet fragrance emanated from her body.
Tang Wulin forced a smile. “Wait.” His voice was a little unclear now due to the slap.
“Sure. Since your blood is so important, I’ll let you speak one sentence. However, don’t you dare irritate me by begging.” There was a kind of charm in the evil soul master’s voice. It was the kind of charm that could make a person anxious.
Tang Wulin replied, “I’m not begging for me since I know I have no way to escape. However, since my blood will benefit you greatly, I’m sure you’ll need to find a place to cultivate after ingesting my blood, right? You shouldn’t waste your time! If that’s the case, could you let my companion go free? She’s of no use to you and won’t even pose a threat since she’s so weak. Please, bring me with you and you can s--k my blood somewhere else. Please? You’ll just have to get rid of her here. I don’t want her to see me getting my blood s----d by you.”
The evil soul master was stunned, to the point where her hands became stiff. “You’re dying and you’re thinking about her? Do you like her? You’re just a kid, do you even understand love?
Tang Wulin tried smiling. “I don’t know what love is, but nothing makes sense now since I’m dying. Can you at least promise me this? Consider this my last wish before I die.”
The evil soul master sighed all of a sudden. “I never knew there were people still willing to sacrifice their lives for others. You’re a good person, no wonder your blood is so pure. I’ve always thought that all men in this world were cheaters. So… It actually is possible to remain pure without being affected by worldly matters when one is young. I desire your blood even more now!”
Initially, Tang Wulin was still hopeful when he heard what she was saying in the beginning. However, that last sentence crushed all his hopes.
“Alright then. I’ll grant you your wish. I’ll release her.”
“But who’s going to let you go then?” An absurd-sounding voice appeared out of nowhere.
The voice was heard from every direction and its source could not be identified. However, as soon as the voice appeared, the space around them began to tremble as a suppressive aura was felt in every inch around them. Then, an insanely terrifying pressure sealed the space around them instantly.
The evil soul master immediately turned around to the sight of a huge silhouette inching step after step toward her.
‘How’s this possible? With my powerful perception, how was it that I didn’t sense his presence before this? Why didn’t I sense anything when there’s someone so close!?’
She could sense danger from this person’s spirit and soul as it slowly crept up her spine and spread through her head. It had been a long time since the evil soul master felt that.
The vicious force emanating from the huge silhouette was from the fusion of countless blood particles. He towered over 2.4 meters high and had extremely broad shoulders. Also, he looked much stronger than an ordinary person.
Upon closer inspection, the evil soul master saw the face of a middle-aged man. His face was manly and cold, while his skin was tanned. It felt like his body was covered in an alloy, and his eyes seemed like emotionless yellow crystals. This was the first time the evil soul master saw such this kind of color in an eye.
“Who are you?” The evil soul master’s voice regained its chilly quality as she tossed Tang Wulin to the ground and lifted her hands. She did this because she could clearly sense the threat emanating from the opponent standing before her.
All Tang Wulin could feel was a chill that spread through his entire body. He passed out, feeling unsatisfied.
“You’ve got no right to know who I am.” The majestic body proceeded to walk closer to her as the suppressive aura from his body grew more intense.
The evil soul master scoffed and the scarlet glow in her eyes suddenly grew more intense. An intense bloody glow shot out of her body and as she waved her right hand, a thin bloody sword appeared. After a slight tremor, countless red specks appeared in the sky, surrounding the evil soul master’s body that was in the center of it all. Initially, they were tiny specks but as they grew, they began to look like cold, ruthless, and bloody eyes.
An intense wave of blood energy ran rampant as tens of thousands of bloody orbs shot out from the bloody eyes that targetted the huge man.
The huge man finally stopped his advance. As soon as he stopped walking, he stomped his right leg hard onto the ground, creating an intense bang that seemed to distort the space around them.
The bloody orbs shot out at an alarming rate but just as they were ten meters from the huge man, a dark golden layer unexpectedly appeared.+1January 15, 2021 at 2:16 am #1427463
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The air erupted with countless explosions. It was as though every one of the glowing collisions caused a tiny crack in space itself. However, the dark gold barrier remained unaffected.
At that moment, the huge man waved his right hand. His right arm had suddenly become muscular while his hand was growing at an astounding rate. Five shining dark gold orbs seemed like they were going to tear heaven and earth apart.
As soon as he attacked, the imposing manner that he was gathering dissipated while the distance between them was covered instantly.
With the cultivation base of an evil soul master, she was shocked to find that she could not get out of range straight away.
‘What kind of skill does this person have?’
In a flash, a bright red glow lit up on her forehead; the countless bloody eyes in the sky were recalled and swiftly swarmed into her body.
Her entire being was covered in blood-red armor. This armor bore no fancy patterns, only vicious bloody eyes dazzled upon it.
Immediately, the evil soul master’s imposing manner skyrocketed. A pair of flaps opened on her back, resembling gigantic bat wings, blood red like her armor. As she flapped her wings, a crimson glimmer emanated; the red sword in her hand slashed a thin blood-like trail across the sky.
A massive blast could be heard all around. From the center of the collision, the terrifying explosion shot up into the clouds. The very sky was torn apart by the overwhelming force of the two soul power waves.
A scarlet silhouette catapulted out from the within the deep. The figure flew hundreds of meters straight out before landing on the ground. Five wounds neatly striped across the breastplate she wore. Had it not been for her armor, she might have been completely torn apart.
“You… you’re a Limit Douluo?”
The evil soul master’s voice could not remain calm anymore.
She herself was a three-word battle armor master and as well as a Hyper Douluo! With the armor, her cultivation base was near to that of a Limit Douluo. On the other hand, her opponent managed to defeat her without having to put on any battle armor at all. That had proven one thing – the person was a Limit Douluo. A true Limit Douluo.
Although battle armor could elevate an evil soul master to the same level as a Limit Douluo, there were differences when compared to a true Limit Douluo. It was a world that operated on a divine level.
Even with battle armor, it was never really possible to reach such a level. Only people who had achieved a significant amount in their cultivation base would be able to open the door into that world.
At that point, the bloody-eyed evil soul master no longer cared about the power Tang Wulin could grant her and she rolled herself onto the floor. In an instant, her body completely transformed into glowing red stripes and shot out everywhere.
Rather than escaping toward one specific direction, the glowing bands scattered every which way. Just like that, the evil soul master had disappeared and was nowhere to be seen.
Surprisingly, the enormous man did not chase after her. Instead, he walked slowly toward Tang Wulin and Gu Yue. His right arm slowly shrank back to its initial size, while the five blades that had extended from his fingers retracted.
He only stopped walking when he arrived before Gu Yue.
At that moment, Gu Yue sat up from the ground. Yes, she sat up right away.
“Miss,” the man said respectfully with one knee on the ground.
“Hmm.” Gu Yue gave a short response and stood up. She walked to Tang Wulin and squatted down slowly. Gently, she caressed his face.
A gentle spark of light emanated from her and entered Tang Wulin’s cheek, causing the swelling to heal.
The massive warrior stood straight as an arrow, but he did not ask anything. His eyes, like yellow crystals, showed no sign of emotion at all.
“Are you curious as to why I didn’t let you kill that evil soul master?”
Although Gu Yue faced Tang Wulin, she asked the man.
“Yes,” he replied simply.
“‘The enemy of my enemy is my friend’. We should use whatever we have at our disposal. You can leave now.” Gu Yue waved her hand.
“Yes,” the hulking figure responded once more before turning around and walking slowly into the darkness.
Shadow fell upon them. Night had come.
Gu Yue sat by Tang Wulin, gazing at him dreamily. Only sometime later did she walk to Tang Wulin and lay down. She leaned her body into his embrace.
“Woah! This is too much!” Zhen Hua’s face was ghastly pale.
Mu Ye peered at him. “They’re fine, I’ve checked their bodies thoroughly. But it seems like Heaven Dou City might be dangerous now. Have you reported this incident to the federation? It’s best that you inform Shrek Academy as well.”
“Yes,” Zhen Hua nodded and calmed himself down.
“Fortunately, they’re alright, but looking at the condition of the scene, it appears as though there was a fight between masters. Furthermore, the elemental wave in the air was incredibly powerful. This was most certainly a fight between Hyper Douluo level experts. That evil soul master must have escaped. Could it have been people from Shrek Academy who were there?” Mu Ye asked Zhen Hua.
Zhen Hua shook his head. “It couldn’t be. I’ve asked Shrek. I’ll send them back myself after Wulin wakes up. It seems like this boy has been targeted by the evil soul master as well. Don’t let him leave the academy arbitrarily in the future. Evil soul masters won’t dare to create trouble within Shrek. Shrek has that ‘certain someone’ protecting the place after all.”
Tang Wulin felt a sense of warmth inside himself when he woke up from unconsciousness. It was an indescribable, comforting sensation.
As soon as he sat up, he subconsciously touched his cheeks and chest. He then looked at the decorations around the room.
‘I’m still alive?’
That was his first response. He then quickly checked his body. His blood was still there, no longer being drained.
A sense of excitement and joy spread all over him.
There was no pain or discomfort in his body at all. Swiftly, he got off the bed and went to the window, pulling back the curtain to take a look outside.
‘Isn’t this the Blacksmith Association?’ It was only then that he realized he was now in safe hands.
The last thing he could remember was the moment when the evil soul master tossed him out. He faintly recalled the deep voice of a man speaking at that point. It must have been that person who threatened the evil soul master.
‘But who was that? Was he the one that saved us?’
With many questions on his mind, Tang Wulin pushed open the door and bumped into Zhen Hua just as he was about to enter the room.
“You’re awake?” Zhen Hua lifted his hand and pressed it against Tang Wulin’s chest to check his physical condition. The boy was in high spirits now.
Tang Wulin said in excitement, “Uncle-master!”
He managed to survive! How could his heart not be filled with excitement and joy when he saw Zhen Hua again?
Zhen Hua sighed, “It’s your uncle-master’s fault that you’ve had to bear such a great risk. I didn’t expect the evil soul master to really linger around.”
Tang Wulin said, “Uncle-master, was it you who saved us? Where’s Gu Yue? How’s she now?”
“She’s fine. She’s resting in the other room. It wasn’t I that saved the two of you. By the time we arrived there, both of you were lying on the ground and the evil soul master was gone. Do you remember what happened?”
Tang Wulin described what had befallen him earlier.
“S--k your blood? It seems like that’s an evil soul master who uses blood as her cultivation source,” Mu Ye walked toward them from the other direction.
“Uncle Ye.” Tang Wulin was even more relieved when he saw him.
Zhen Hua said, “You guys should be going to class today, am I right? You’ve missed your morning class. If you’re up to it, let me take the both of you back to the academy.”
Zhen Hua had his own private high-altitude flying car which could reach extremely high speeds. It was much faster than the average mecha.
Tang Wulin looked at Gu Yue while sitting at the back of the car.
“I’m sorry for getting you into trouble,” Tang Wulin said softly to her.
Gu Yue shook her head.
“Are you alright? Are there any hidden injuries on your body?” Tang Wulin asked her gently.
“I’m fine.” Gu Yue shook her head again.
Tang Wulin attempted to ask more, but Gu Yue placed her palm to his and held onto his hand.
Without knowing why, Tang Wulin felt at peace as soon as her rather cold little hand held onto his.
The two of them did not say anything, while Zhen Hua who was in front was clearly gloomy. Although he did not speak much about the incident, Tang Wulin could clearly feel the anger he was suppressing.
The high-altitude flying car’s speed was fast, much faster than that of Tang Wulin’s mecha. What surprised Tang Wulin was that Zhen Hua’s flying car did not only fly directly into Shrek City but straight toward Shrek Academy. It landed slowly as they arrived outside of the academy entrance.
“Wulin, this is for you. Go to class now.” Zhen Hua turned around and gave Tang Wulin a ring. It was different from his first spatial ring. This ring had a magical jade green color, and it bore a silver stone. It had the appearance of a rich life source that was ready to blossom and looked oddly beautiful.
Tang Wulin tried it on and found that it fit nicely on the little finger of his left hand.
“Uncle-master, this is…”0January 15, 2021 at 2:18 am #1427464
Back to the Academy
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Zhen Hua said, “It’s me, your uncle-master who dragged you guys into this. Let’s consider this to be a little compensation for you. Your mecha’s in there.”
Tang Wulin was immediately shocked by this. He knew exactly what Zhen Hua meant when he said his mecha was “in there”. It meant that the ring’s storage was enough to contain his yellow mecha! It was such a precious treasure. A spatial ring of that level was extremely rare across the entire continent.
“Uncle-master, this is priceless. I can’t take it.” Tang Wulin attempted to reject the gift.
Tang Wulin looked distraught at first. “Alright then, you guys can leave now.”
Tang Wulin chuckled. “I’ll take it then!”
Zhen Hua could not hold back any longer and laughed out loud. “You little miser, get lost now!”
Tang Wulin and Gu Yue got out of the car and ran toward the academy immediately. They still had to attend class.
Zhen Hua’s expression became serious again as he watched them leave. He then said to the driver, “Go to the inner court.”
The vehicle ascended once more. Although they were already in the Shrek Academy area, nobody could stop them from doing that. The flying car sped up and arrived at the Shrek Academy’s inner court within a few blinks, stopping outside of the entrance. Zhen Hua got out of the car, taking long strides as he walked toward the inner court.
His high-altitude flying car could access almost anywhere on the continent, but not here. It was the Shrek Academy’s inner court, so he would have to get out of the car as a show of respect to Shrek.
Zhen Hua began to walk instead of fly when he arrived at the side of Sea God’s Lake.
Floating on the water’s surface, he reached the shore of the Sea God’s Island in a matter of moments.
There, he stopped walking and waited in silence.
It did not take long for someone to walk out of the Sea God’s Island. Surprisingly, it was Scarlet Dragon Douluo Zhuo Shi.
“Let’s go. The Pavilion Master is waiting for you,” Zhuo Shi said to Zhen Hua with a nod.
Zhen Hua nodded slightly in reply. With Zhuo Shi leading the way, they walked into the Sea God’s Island.
At the center of the Sea God’s Island stood a huge wooden house built leaning against an enormous tree. It could be said that this building was not only the core of the island, but also of the Shrek Academy, and in fact the nucleus of Shrek City.
For this golden house leaning against the large tree was the seat of the island’s highest authority, the Sea God Pavilion!
The Sea God Pavilion Master was the real grandmaster of the Shrek Academy.
He was among the most powerful and influential in the land, one of the few possessing such a position.
Even the federation would ask for the Sea God Pavilion Master’s opinion when there were important decisions to be made. The reason was simple: power.
The interior of the wooden house was austere. If an outsider were to visit, they would never expect the Sea God Pavilion — home of one reputed to be the most powerful — to be so simple.
There were already eight people sitting on both sides of the long wooden table. Once the master seat was filled, there were nine altogether.
Zhuo Shi gestured to Zhen Hua to sit. It was clear that it was not Zhen Hua’s first time here as he walked to the last seat on the table and took his place. Zhuo Shi entered and sat on the fourth seat on the left.
If Tang Wulin had been there, he would have been surprised to find the young man who was sitting on the master seat. It was the young man that he had seen before, the one who had accompanied Holy Spirit Douluo on the swing. He looked like he was just 27 or 28 years old but he was handsome and wore a gentle smile on his face.
However, every single person of importance from the Shrek Academy in attendance looked at him with absolute respect.
Yali sat on the first seat to his right while there was a tall old man with a big, round face and a massive body sitting on the other side.
Feng Wuyu was there as well, seated across from Scarlet Dragon Douluo Zhuo Shi. Meanwhile, Elder Cai sat next to Feng Wuyu.
Yes, those who presented themselves before him were the true leaders of Shrek Academy, the Sea God Pavilion Elders.
The person who was sitting on the master seat was the highest leader of the Sea God Pavilion, the Sea God Pavilion Master of the generation.
“Your Highness.” Zhen Hua bowed at the Sea God Pavilion Master respectfully.
The Sea God Pavilion Master smiled slightly and gestured at him. Zhen Hua then sat down. Although he was the only Divine Craftsman present, he dared not show his pride before the Sea God Pavilion Master.
He had yet to be born when the Sea God Pavilion Master conquered the continent in the past. This Master was known as the first among experts in today’s Douluo Continent. He was considered to be the apex of humanity. It was said that if the Douluo Continent had been able to sense the presence of the Divine Realm, he would have been elevated to the position much earlier.
Under his leadership, the Shrek Academy was as stable as Mount Tai. The powerful federation government did not dare to treat them with disdain. The independence of Shrek City came from the power of the Sea God Pavilion.
“Zhen Hua, please tell us more about the situation,” the Sea God Pavilion Master said with a smile on his face. There would never be a Sea God Pavilion meeting for minor matters. It would only be held when something major happened.
Zhen Hua nodded and told the complete story of his encounter with the assassin, Tang Wulin being captured by the evil soul master later on, and his bringing them back to the association.
“Do you have any recording of the battle?” The Sea God Pavilion Master asked.
“Yes.” Zhen Hua stood up and took out a metal staff. He pressed it lightly and a stream of light projected from the staff onto the wall. The light was a video showing what he managed to capture at that time.
Every one of the Sea God Pavilion Elders were deep in thought as they watched it.
“Yes, there was an intense fight there. According to what Tang Wulin said, the evil soul master’s expertise is s-----g blood to the point where her cultivation base might be near or already at Hyper Douluo level. The person who saved Tang Wulin must possess extraordinary power to have managed to chase the evil soul master away,” Elder Cai said while frowning.
The Sea God Pavilion Master said two simple words as he squinted. “Duskgold Dreadclaw.”
The faces of all the elders in attendance were aghast when they heard those words.
Holy Spirit Douluo Yali looked at him in a gentle manner. “But a Duskgold Dreadclaw is rare! Moreover, I’ve never heard about any soul masters who managed to cultivate Duskgold Dreadclaw to such a level.”
The Sea God Pavilion Master looked like he was deep in thought as well. “Yes, as far as I know, there is no such person but it has to be Duskgold Dreadclaw, and the cultivation base has to be above Hyper Douluo. Look at that. The marks that they left from the fight were not just scratches. Even the soil and the rocks around them were turned into powder. That’s the sign of peak cultivation of the Duskgold Dreadclaw. Zhuo Shi, if I am not mistaken, Tang Wulin has the Duskgold Dreadclaw ability as well. Is that correct?”
Zhuo Shi nodded. “It’s a little different from the Duskgold Dreadclaw. He combined the force of his own bloodline and calls it Golden Dragon Dreadclaw. But his ability comes from the spirit ascension platform. Do you suspect that the soul master who saved them might be someone from the Spirit Pagoda?”
The Sea God Pavilion Master nodded slightly. “We can’t exclude that possibility. A powerful soul master that we are completely unaware of most likely came from the Spirit Pagoda. They’ve been more and more secretive in recent years.”
Due to the spirit soul requirements of the soul masters, the Spirit Pagoda had accumulated a massive fortune and their power was expanding at great speed. In addition, during recent years, artificial spirit souls had been developed to such an extent that it granted more soul masters a chance to possess powerful spirit souls. It had skyrocketed the Spirit Pagoda’s position. All this had proved the saying — you can do anything when you’re rich.
“That’s possible. Gu Yue is the core disciple of the Spirit Pagoda while Heavenly Phoenix Douluo is her teacher.” Elder Cai subconsciously looked at Holy Spirit Douluo Yali when he said that.
Yali was a little stunned when she heard the name of Heavenly Phoenix Douluo.
An unnatural emotion flashed across the Sea God Pavilion Master’s eyes. Although he managed to suppress it immediately, the entire room of the generation’s finest, including Zhen Hua, noticed it. They could not help but secretly laugh inside. Rumor had it that the Sea God Pavilion Master had a history with the Spirit Pagoda’s vice chairman, Heavenly Phoenix Douluo Leng Yaozhu; perhaps there was some truth to these rumors?
The Pavilion Master coughed. “I’ll confirm about that with the Spirit Pagoda. Now let’s talk about the evil soul master,” the Sea God Pavilion Master said in all seriousness.+1
