Chapter 1009: Forced Release

Tang Wulin took a deep breath, and now that the battle was about to commence, a sharp look immediately appeared in his eyes. In contrast, Blood Nine still wore his usual smile on his face.

"Three, two, one, begin!"

Blood Nine made an inviting hand gesture to Tang Wulin, and the latter quickly released his suit of battle armor.

The shimmering golden suit of battle armor encapsulated his entire body, instantly taking him to over three meters tall. A pair of golden dragon wings spread open on his back, and his aura elevated in a frenzy. He brandished his Golden Dragon Spear in front of him, and it was around four and a half meters in length with a platinum spear projection erupting from on its spearheads.

Blood Nine's smile remained unchanged, but he also summoned his soul rings, and they emerged from beneath his feet before revolving around his body.

There were nine soul rings in total, consisting of three purple and six blacks, and his enormous aura as a Titled Douluo surged through the air.

Tang Wulin swept his Golden Dragon Spear in front of him, and Blood Nine's expression changed slightly as he could sense that the aura that he'd released had just been sliced apart by Tang Wulin's simple gesture. The next thing that he felt was the scorching sensation radiating from Tang Wulin's body.

It wasn't scorching heat in a temperature sense, but instead, a scorching aura that originated from his bloodline. Four golden soul rings emerged from beneath Tang Wulin's feet before revolving rhythmically around him, and his aura continued to swell drastically. In particular, his blood essence power was even making Blood Nine's blood essence shudder slightly.

It was no wonder that Blood One had such a lofty opinion of him; he really was something else!

Blood Nine's eyes narrowed slightly, and a cautious look appeared on his face.

He was a Titled Douluo, so he naturally couldn't initiate an attack, so it was left to Tang Wulin to rush forward like lightning toward Blood Nine with his Golden Dragon Spear pointing directly forward.

He withdrew his wings slightly and didn't unleash any of his abilities for now. He had been able to fight in a carefree manner against Jiang Wuyue, but he was currently facing one of the nine Blood Gods!

He held his Golden Dragon Spear by his side with its spear projection pointing forward, and at this point, his pupils had already become vertical. His yin yang vortex was rotating at full speed at his behest, and his powers had been elevated to the very max.

The 100 meters between them was covered in virtually the blink of an eye, and when they were still around 30 meters away from one another, Tang Wulin tapped his foot in the ground, propelling his body into the air like a bolt of golden lightning. He pointed his Golden Dragon Spear forward, and the spear projection swelled drastically in size. He flapped his dragon wings and unleashed his Golden Dragon Takes Flight, instantly elevating his speed to such an extent that he broke through the sound barrier.

A sonic boom erupted, and the platinum spear projection reached Blood Nine in a flash.

His speed was extraordinary for someone of his cultivation rank, and not only was this due to the enhancements from his suit of battle armor, his abilities were also contributing to this. With his ultra-powerful physical constitution, the speed that Tang Wulin was currently displaying was definitely not inferior to that of a Titled Douluo.

Blood Nine was also taking Tang Wulin more seriously now, and as soon as Tang Wulin reached him, he also unleashed his martial soul.

A strange weapon appeared in his hand. It was also a spear, but it had only one sharp spearhead that was around a meter in length. The spearhead was in the shape of a snake with a forked tip; it was a snake spear! [A snake spear is a traditional Chinese weapon, you can Google search an image of it for an idea of what it looks like.]

The nine soul rings that were originally revolving around his body instantly appeared around his snake spear, and the light erupted from the front of the snake spear, resembling a large snake flicking its forked tongue. He flicked his wrist, and the spearhead of the snake spear swept toward Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon Spear.

No spear projection was released, but in the instant that the snake spear swept through the air, the surrounding air seemed to have twisted and warped in an attempt to refract Tang Wulin's spear projection.

However, right at this moment, the power of his spear projection completely erupted. 

After coming into contact with the warped space, the spear projection of the Golden Dragon Spear did indeed waver momentarily, but in the next instant, it pierced directly through the warped space before reaching Blood Nine in a flash.

Blood Nine raised an eyebrow as his body gently swayed to evade the spear projection, and at the same time, his snake spear clashed with Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon Spear.

"Ding!" A crisp clang rang out, and the snake spear shot back like lightning. Tang Wulin suddenly sensed a strange rotational force acting upon his Golden Dragon Spear, drawing it off to the side. The snake spear then reappeared at a lightning-fast speed, and on this occasion, it appeared right in front of Tang Wulin's chest.

What incredible attacking speed! Was this the attacking speed of a Titled Douluo? However, the problem was that this attack wasn't actually able to swat his Golden Dragon Spear aside, and this was an observation that came as quite a shock to Blood Nine as well!

As a Titled Douluo, he naturally also possessed the strength of a Titled Douluo, and if he'd been facing a normal Soul Emperor, that instant of contact just now would've been enough to wrench the weapon directly out of his opponent's hand.

However, in the instant that his snake spear struck Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon Spear, he felt as if he had just attacked a mountain, and the sharpness of Tang Wulin's spear struck him with a burst of pain through his snake spear.

After that, the Golden Dragon Spear was diverted off its original trajectory, but it was still hurtling toward his shoulder with devastating force.

As things currently were, his snake spear was going to strike Tang Wulin's chest, but at the same time, Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon Spear was going to strike his shoulder.

Blood Nine had seen video footage of the Golden Dragon Spear, and he had a very clear recollection of its ability to devour energy. Furthermore, Tang Wulin's defenses were being bolstered by his suit of two-word battle armor. As a Titled Douluo, it wouldn't be difficult for him to break through the defenses of a suit of two-word battle armor, but his spear would definitely be forced to slow down during the process, and by that time, he'd already have been injured by Tang Wulin's spear. Was it worth it?

As a Titled Douluo, Blood Nine would feel very embarrassed if he were to be wounded by a Soul Emperor. As such, he instantly made his decision, and his snake spear changed directions, sliding away from Tang Wulin's chest and aiming toward his right armpit instead.

His attack was going to strike Tang Wulin first, and in doing so, Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon Spear would naturally draw to an abrupt halt.

However, right at this moment, Tang Wulin also sprang into action.

The surface of his Dragon Moon battle armor instantly took on a mirror-like appearance, and he made no attempt to evade as he unleashed a platinum spear projection from his Golden Dragon Spear, which hurtled directly toward Blood Nine's shoulder.

Soul power fluctuations abruptly emerged from Blood Nine's shoulder, forming a burst of warped light that forcibly refracted Tang Wulin's spear projection. Even so, the spear projection still inflicted a gash onto his shoulder. Thankfully, it was only a glancing blow, so it didn't manage to absorb any of his life force energy, but who would've thought that a Titled Douluo would be injured by a Soul Emperor after just a single exchange?

At the same time, the snake spear had also reached close to Tang Wulin's armpit, and Tang Wulin only had time to shift his body slightly in response. He made no attempt to evade; instead, he was using his breastplate to take the attack.

"Ding!" The snake spear instantly shattered his two-word battle armor's protective barrier, and the surface of the battle armor caved in slightly, but at the same time, it began to flash rapidly.

Blood Nine had thought that even though Tang Wulin had managed to hurt him, this would be the end of the battle, but much to his surprise, his snake spear failed to pierce through Tang Wulin's two-word battle armor. How could this be?

He had already released his first soul skill to increase the sharpness of his snake spear!

Right at this moment, Tang Wulin suddenly let go of his Golden Dragon Spear, and he made a grab for the snake spear with his left golden dragon claw while lashing out with his right hand.

Golden Dragon Annihilation Claws!

A massive set of golden dragon claws appeared out of thin air, and countless Bluesilver Emperor vines also erupted forth before fusing into the sharp claws from behind!

This was a blood soul fusion skill, so to put it more accurately, this was his Blue Emperor Golden Dragon Annihilation Claws!

The enormous pressure and destructive aura emanating from the attack made even Blood Nine's expression change drastically, and in that instant, he could sense that his life was coming under threat.

This was not good!

How were this kid's attacks so powerful?

His snake spear shuddered as its third soul ring lit up, and a giant python suddenly erupted from the spear, crashing viciously into Tang Wulin's chest and sending him flying back through the air. Even so, the Blue Emperor Golden Dragon Annihilation Claws, which encompassed a range of over 20 meters, still reached him with devastating force.

This was one of Tang Wulin's most powerful offensive abilities, and it was the culmination of his Duskgold Dreadclaw Bear right-hand soul bone, Golden Dragon King bloodline, battle armor, Nine Arts of the Golden Dragon, and his blood soul fusion skills. This attack possessed Titled Douluo level destructive power.

Tang Wulin was sent flying by Blood Nine and was throwing up blood as he flew through the air, but his attack was also unavoidable.

Blood Nine instantly made an accurate assessment, and he was stunned to discover that he wouldn't be able to handle this attack unless he released his battle armor.

But how was this possible?

His body sprang into action as soon as he made his judgment, and his suit of grey battle armor instantly appeared over his body as an emergency response. He withdrew his snake spear before abruptly spreading open the wings on his back, and a halo of grey light was also released.
