Is this my fifth bloodline soul skill?
Even though he hadn't unleashed it as a blood soul fusion skill, Tang Wulin could clearly sense that it was even more fearsome than a blood soul fusion skill.
At the same time, he also began to develop an understanding of this ability; this was not just an individual skill, but something that could be integrated with any single one of his soul skills! It was absolutely perfect in all areas aside from the fact that it required a vast amount of energy expenditure to unleash.
He decided to name it his Golden Dragon Vibrational Explosion!
Even though he had been trying to control the direction that the soul skill was unleashed toward with all his might, it had still sapped away over 60% of his soul power and bloodline power after just two uses. This meant that he could only use this skill in explosive bursts. At the very least, that was the case at his current cultivation rank.
Even so, Tang Wulin's heart was still filled with excitement. This meant that he possessed an ultra-powerful explosive ability!
Gu Yuena sat in front of a small lake and gently tucked a few strands of her silver hair behind her ear. She was looking at the women of the Scorching Basin washing their clothes on the opposite shore with a lost expression on her face.
A hint of pain flashed through her eyes, followed by a hint of anticipation.
He was coming to see her again.
"Why haven't you fused with me?" A gentle voice that only she could hear rang out.
"I've already lost to you, so you can fuse with me at any time! Why haven't you done so?" The voice sounded again.
If Tang Wulin could hear this voice, then he'd definitely be extremely astonished as this voice belonged to none other than his little sister! That's right, this was Na'er's voice.
Gu Yue didn't reply; she merely continued to gaze into the distance in silence.
"We were already gradually combining as one, and that explosion split us apart again, but you've been healed by the Singular Velvet Sky Chrysanthemum, so why haven't you begun the fusion process again?" Na'er's voice was filled with befuddlement.
Gu Yue still didn't say anything in reply. There seemed to be countless thoughts flashing through her purple eyes, yet there was also an implacably determined light shimmering within her pupils.
"What's going on with you?" Na'er was insisting on getting an answer, and her voice had become a little harsh.
"I should kill him. Only after killing him will I be able to dedicate myself wholeheartedly to the things that I should do," Gu Yue finally replied.
"You wouldn't do that," Na'er's voice was filled with confidence as she countered, "The fact that you won the bet against me indicates that there's no way you can do anything to harm him, so you wouldn't do that."
Gu Yue was silent for a moment before suddenly replying, "There's no way for you to stop me; you and I both know that only by killing him will I have the chance to awaken the genes of the Dragon God in order to revive it. The Divine Realm no longer exists, and only under these circumstances will we be able to create our own Divine Realm which will be a haven for our brethren. This is not just about me; it's about the entire world of Soul Beasts, as well as all of the other beasts in this world. In order to achieve this, I have to destroy the human race so they can't prevent me from doing what I want to do."
A forlorn tone entered Na'er's voice. "I'm naturally aware that this is what we should do. After all, your memories are my memories as well, but can we really do this? If we do this, how will we be different from humans? Were the human gods really the only ones at fault during that battle in the Divine Realm? Were we not at fault as well?"
Gu Yue sighed, "You're still regarding yourself as a human, aren't you?"
Na'er said in an indifferent voice, "If you insist on that being the case, then I won't disagree; I am the human part of your memories anyway. You still haven't told me why you still haven't fused with me. You should be aware that if you don't fuse with me, I'll do everything in my power to stop you if you ever bring yourself to try and hurt him."
Gu Yue's eyes glazed over slightly. "You don't understand."
Na'er insisted, "Then tell me so I understand!"
Gu Yue gently shook her head in response. "No, I can't tell you. You'll know when the time comes."
Na'er asked, "How long are you going to keep him in the dark for?"
Gu Yue looked into the distance with a blank expression. "If it were possible, I'd want to keep him in the dark forever."
Na'er faltered slightly before a peal of tinkling laughter suddenly escaped from her mouth. "I knew it! There's no way you can kill him."
Gu Yue countered, "But don't you know that aside from me, every single one of our brethren wants him dead? It's time for us to go back."
"You're going to leave?" Na'er asked in a trembling voice, "But what about him? If you leave, he'll definitely guess that we've already recovered our memories."
Gu Yue said in an indifferent voice, "Even still, we have no choice but to leave. Di Tian is close to tracking us down, and with his spiritual power, it wouldn't be difficult for him to discover Wulin. In our current form, we're still no match for Di Tian. He already discovered my inability to kill Wulin last time, so he's definitely going to kill him in my stead. Only by killing him will we be able to fuse as one."
"No! If he dies, we'll be driven insane, and we'll completely fall apart." Na'er's voice suddenly became very cold.
A wry smile appeared on Gu Yue's face. "Ever since I became the silver dragon after the Dragon God was cut in half by the Asura Sword, I've never felt this vulnerable before. You know, I really don't like this feeling."
"Gu Yuena, I've always wanted to ask you something," Na'er suddenly said.
"What is it?"
Na'er was silent for a moment before continuing, "Are you happy when you're with him?"
Gu Yue also fell silent upon hearing this. She stood up, then squatted down beside the lake, cupping some water with her hands before letting it slip through her fingers. "Without happiness, how would there be pain?"
In the next instant, it was as if time had suddenly stopped.
Gu Yuena's body shuddered slightly, and she seemed to have sensed something. The forlorn and sorrow expression on her face silently vanished, and was replaced by a knowing smile.
In the next instant, she was encircled in a warm embrace.
"Gu Yue, what are you doing here? I've been looking all over for you!" His gentle voice sent a surge of warmth flowing through her heart.
No matter how painful the future was going to be, she was happy in this very moment. She really, really loved this warm embrace.
"Father!" she called out in a faint voice.
Tang Wulin held her in his arms, and said, "I was released a little early, and I came over right away. Did you miss me?"
"I did!" She turned around and rested her head against his chest, basking in his warmth and listening to his strong beating heart as she closed her eyes. "I really missed you!"
Tang Wulin gently stroked her long silver hair, and in this instant, his heart was filled with satisfaction. He was far happier than even when he'd manifested his soul core and broken his 10th Golden Dragon King seal.
It was exactly because of her that no matter how rough the road ahead was, there were no obstacles in his eyes. At the very least, his heart still had a safe haven with the one that he loved.
The two of them held one another, and the sunlight shone down upon them. The women washing clothes on the other side of the lake were completely entranced as they looked on at this match made in heaven.
Two days passed by very quickly, but those fleeting two days were filled with happiness.
They cooked together, washed clothes together, walked together, laughed together, stargazed together, and looked up at the snowy alps together.
Every single second was filled with joy and intimacy.
"When are you coming back next time, Father?" Gu Yuena asked in a quiet voice.
Tang Wulin replied, "I might be away for a bit longer this time. I'm participating in a competition, and I'll only be able to visit you again at the conclusion of the competition. When that time comes, I should be able to stay with you for a few more days. Are you bored over here on your own?"
Gu Yuena smiled, and said, "Whenever I get bored, I think of you, and I'm not bored anymore."
Tang Wulin appraised her gorgeous smiling face, and he finally couldn't help but lean down and plant a gentle kiss on her cheek.
Her cheek was fragrant and supple, and he had originally only intended to give her a single peck, but he couldn't help but kiss her again.
Gu Yuena giggled, "That tickles, Father."
Tang Wulin suddenly encircled his arms tightly around her. "Never leave me again, alright?"
Gu Yuena's smile stiffened, and her expression gradually softened. She paused momentarily before nodding as she replied in a gentle voice, "I'll never leave you."
After Tang Wulin returned to the Blood God Legion, he was filled with motivation once again.
He had already gradually become accustomed to his life here. The cultivation and battles were always intense and taxing, but all of the stress he accumulated would immediately vanish at the sight of Gu Yuena. He could even sense that he was able to detect elements more clearly than before, indicating that his spiritual power had improved once again.
This was something that had most likely already been achieved in the aftermath of his last breakthrough, but it hadn't yet become clear to him. Following the two days he'd spent with Gu Yuena, everything had become clear to him.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
