The black light leaped back and performed a graceful somersault before its paws landed on the ground in a completely soundless manner. One of its eyes was blue while the other was green, and both of them were locked firmly on the golden figure up ahead in a vicious manner.
This naturally wasn't an actual cat; there were virtually no feline soul beasts that could cultivate to such a powerful level. As such, it had to be a martial soul true body!
A seven-ring Soul Sage with such immense power was naturally able to dominate Long Yuxue, who was only a Soul Emperor.
The one who had just shielded Long Yuxue was naturally none other than Tang Wulin, and at this moment, he was staring intently at the black cat through narrowed eyes, and his arms were spread open by his sides as faint golden light swirled around his body.
"Yuxue, get in the car," Tang Wulin instructed in a grim voice.
"Alright." Long Yuxue had been comprehensively dominated by her opponent throughout this battle, and that was even after she had released her suit of two-word battle armor while her opponent had refrained from doing so. This meant that her opponent was dominating her through her martial soul true body alone. Just how powerful was she?
One had to realize that with her Soul Emperor cultivation rank coupled with her suit of two-word battle armor, her combat prowess was comparable to that of an eight-ring Soul Douluo!
The black cat merely paused momentarily before pouncing toward Tang Wulin like lightning. Its two front paws instantly conjured up countless claw projections, making it impossible for Tang Wulin to clearly identify the trajectory of her attack. All he could sense was that he seemed to be under attack from all sides.
The cat claws were extremely sharp and shimmered like sharp blades.
Tang Wulin let loose a low cry before stepping forward with his left foot, then launching his right fist through the air. There was no technique involved; he was merely using his absolute strength to combat his opponent.
In the face of this extraordinarily fast agility attack system Soul Master, Tang Wulin had no intention of engaging her in a contest of speed. At the same time, he was very confident in the Body Sect's congenital secret method that he had begun to master. In a direct clash, he was confident that his opponent wouldn't be able to harm him.
She had countless claws, while he only had a single fist. Tang Wulin's punch seemed to be completely mundane and ordinary, but to the black cat, it felt as if his fist were a devastating shooting star, and the fearsome pressure it was releasing was causing even her soul to tremble in fear.
Its claws may not be able to defeat its opponent, but it had no doubt in its mind that it would definitely die a very terrible death if it were to be struck by that punch.
As such, in this critical situation, the black cat suddenly withdrew its claws before performing a somersault in an extremely lithe and graceful manner. A streak of black light appeared in the air above Tang Wulin's fist, and his opponent chose not to fight fire with fire. The streak of black light tore through the pressure being released by Tang Wulin's fist, and immediately thereafter, the black cat's body took on an illusionary quality as it vanished in a flash through a spatial rift it had opened.
In the next instant, it appeared behind Tang Wulin before thrusting both of its front paws toward Tang Wulin's back.
The black cat's reactions, speed, and usage of soul skills were all near perfect, and through the enhancements of the martial soul true body, this attack seemed to be powerful enough to tear through the very air. Even before the paws had struck him, Tang Wulin was already struck by a sense of sharp pain in his back muscles.
He harrumphed coldly as the muscles on his back abruptly bulged, and a series of rhomboid scales appeared over his skin. Immediately thereafter, he rushed backward without even making the effort to turn around, using his back as a weapon against his opponent.
This was not something that he was used to, but he had learned it from A'Ruheng. Those of the Body Sect used their bodies as their weapons, and any body part could be weaponized.
The black cat was clearly taken aback by Tang Wulin's actions, and on this occasion, it didn't take any evasive measures. It also wanted to see just what gave him the confidence to use his own back as a weapon.
A piercing screeching sound rang out, and his clothes were torn apart, revealing the golden scales on his back. The cat's claws scratched over the scales, sending a flurry of sparks flying through the air and leaving a series of white marks on the scales. However, much to the black cat's astonishment, its claws, which were capable of tearing through iron and steel, were unable to pierce through Tang Wulin's defenses.
His wide back was about to reach her in an instant, and what was even more terrifying was that his scales had stood up on end, making his back appear as if it were a wall of nails. If it allowed itself to be struck by this attack, grievous injuries would definitely result.
What kind of monster was this? How could his defenses be so powerful? Furthermore, he hadn't even released his martial soul yet!
Not only was Tang Wulin using his back to attack his opponent, his right elbow was also swiveling around with tremendous force amid a faint dragon's roar.
The black cat reacted extremely quickly after failing to harm Tang Wulin with its attacks, attempting to thrust its paws against his body to propel itself backward, but right at this moment, a layer of golden light suddenly erupted from his back.
The black cat was struck by a sticky sensation, and her paws did manage to strike Tang Wulin's back, but her body was locked into place by that burst of power. His back was about to crash into the rest of her body, and his elbow had also almost reached her head.
This was not good!
In this dire situation, the black cat remained completely unflustered, and its body suddenly underwent a strange transformation. The black cat was already over two meters in length, but its body abruptly expanded even further as tufts of white fur began to appear, interspersing itself with her existing black fur. At the same time, its body instantly swelled to over seven meters in length, and its strength also increased drastically. A layer of golden light instantly appeared over its fur, and it lowered its tiger head to oppose Tang Wulin's elbow. At the same time, it swept its tiger paws through the air in a vicious manner, sending them crashing into Tang Wulin's back.
A pair of dull thumps rang out, and despite the fact that the black cat had already transformed into a giant white tiger, it was still sent flying by Tang Wulin. In a contest of pure strength, even A'Ruheng was now reluctant to face Tang Wulin. After absorbing the Golden Dragon King essence from the 11 seals, his strength was now comparable and perhaps even superior to that of a mature Tyrant Dragon.
The white tiger rolled along the ground before springing to its feet with a look of ferocity intermingled with wariness in its eyes. It was staring intently at Tang Wulin in a menacing display, and at this moment, Tang Wulin had already turned around. As soon as he caught sight of the giant white tiger, a stunned look appeared in his eyes.
At this point, Long Yuxue, who had already returned to the car, was completely rooted to her seat. As one of the young elites of the Blood God Legion, she had always been extremely confident in her own power. She had even thought that she was one of the most powerful beings on the entire continent at her age, and even after Tang Wulin appeared in her life, she had merely thought that he was just an extreme outlier.
After all, he was the leader of Shrek’s Seven Monsters, and there was only a single Tang Wulin in this world.
However, she couldn't help but be struck by a sense of dejection at the sight of Tang Wulin's opponent. Tang Wulin hadn't seen this Soul Master in her human form, but she had, and she could tell that this was clearly a female Soul Master who was even younger than her. However, she was evidently far more powerful than Long Yuxue. She had come off second best during her past few clashes with Tang Wulin, but she hadn't actually fallen to a significant disadvantage, and in her current white tiger form, she was clearly more powerful than before.
She hadn't even bothered to adopt this form against Long Yuxue, nor had she even donned her suit of battle armor. As a seven-ring Soul Sage at such a young age, it was downright impossible for her not to have a suit of battle armor!
The massive white tiger crouched downward, and its body expanded once again, becoming even more muscular in the process. Her first, third, fifth, and seventh soul rings were glowing in unison, and just the ability to activate four soul skills at once placed her far above the average Soul Master.
However, right at this moment, Tang Wulin suddenly yelled, "Wait!"
The white tiger faltered momentarily and didn't immediately pounce. Instead, it asked in a cold provocative voice, "What? Are you scared?"
A hint of incredulity appeared in Tang Wulin's eyes as he asked, "Are, are you Wu Siduo?"
The white tiger's massive body clearly stiffened, and it immediately roared, "Who are you?"
Only then did Tang Wulin remember that he was currently in disguise, and a series of cracks and pops rang out from his bones as he reverted back to his original height. At the same time, he rubbed his hand over his own face to reveal his original appearance.
The giant white tiger's massive body began to tremble at the sight of his true appearance, and the four soul rings dimmed in unison as it exclaimed, "Tang Wulin? Is, is that you?"
The white tiger stood up on its hind legs as it spoke before reverting back to its human form, revealing itself to be none other than Wu Siduo.
Tang Wulin felt as if he had returned to a former life at the sight of Wu Siduo. Ever since the first day he had arrived in Shrek Academy, he and Wu Siduo's paths had crossed on multiple occasions.
They were once rivals who were constantly competing with one another, and they had also once been comrades who had given rise to the most powerful class of Shrek Academy.
During the Sea God Fate Match-making Convention, Wu Siduo had laid down her pride to confess to Tang Wulin, only to be rejected and departed in a fit of rage. Who would've thought that they would be reunited on the shore of Sea God's Lake, roughly one year after the destruction of Shrek Academy?Previous Chapter Next Chapter
