Li Yun had also figured out what Xie Xie was implying at this point, and he asked, "Sect Master, are you related to Shrek Academy as well?"
Xie Xie explained, "The man you're looking at is not just the Tang Sect Master, but also the leader of the current Shrek’s Seven Monsters, and the Sea God's Pavilion Master. He's not just a representative for the Tang Sect, but also for Shrek Academy. The academy may have been destroyed, but I'm sure that all three continents have to acknowledge our status."
Li Yun was quite stunned to hear this, and he couldn't help but see Tang Wulin through new eyes. The Sea God's Pavilion Master was someone who ranked alongside the Tang Sect's Douluo Palace Master, and the last Sea God's Pavilion Master, Atlas Douluo Yun Ming, was widely regarded as the most powerful being on the entire continent. Just how impressive was this young man to have obtained the approval of both Yun Ming and the Tang Sect?
"Yun, do you still recognize me?" All of a sudden, a person sitting in the back wearing a baggy hooded cloak suddenly drew back the hood, revealing a set of exquisitely beautiful facial features and a head of white hair.
All of the people from the Tang Sect's Dou Spirit Empire branches were momentarily stunned at the sight of her. She was simply too beautiful, and the color of her hair was very striking as well.
Li Yun's expression stiffened upon seeing her, following which an incredulous look appeared in his eyes, and his voice began to tremble as he said, "You, you're the Holy Spirit Douluo?"
"That's right," a faint smile appeared on Ya Li's face as she replied, "Xie Xie is telling the truth; Wulin is not just the Tang Sect Master, he's also our Sea God's Pavilion Master. I can vouch for him."
Li Yun suddenly rose to his feet in a slightly frantic manner before hurriedly making his way over to Yali, then falling to one knee. "Li Yun pays his respects to Her Majesty!"
Everyone present was stunned to see this, especially those from the Tang Sect branches. Here in the Dou Spirit Empire, even the royal family treated him as an esteemed guest, yet now, he was kneeling down in front of this exquisite beauty. This was something that he wouldn't even do in the face of the king of the Dou Spirit Empire. He was a Hyper Douluo who represented the Tang Sect, and held an extremely lofty status; surely it was an overreaction for him to be kneeling down to this woman.
A slightly resigned look appeared on Yali's face. "What are you doing? Please get up."
Li Yun refused to get, and his voice began to choke up as he said, "It's been 30 years since I last saw you, Your Majesty; you saved my life! Without your kindness, I wouldn't even be alive today, so please allow me to pay my respects to you. Not only did you save me, you saved my entire family; I owe you everything, and even to this day, we have a plaque of you set up in our home. Your Majesty, your hair..."
A wry smile appeared on Yali's face. "It became like this after Yun Ming passed away. Please get up, everyone's watching." She waved a hand through the air, and a burst of gentle force helped him up to his feet.
Li Yun stood before her in a respectful manner, and said, "I didn't know you were coming, Your Majesty; my actions are inexcusable!"
Yali said with a faint smile, "I can tell that you're prouder than you were in the past. The leader of this group is Wulin, not me, so just do everything that he says. He's the joint successor selected by Yun Ming, the Heartless Douluo, the Amorous Douluo, and myself. We all believe that he's the future of the Tang Sect and Shrek Academy, so please lend him all of your assistance."
Li Yun's face paled slightly upon hearing this, and sweat began to bead up on his forehead as he hurried back to Tang Wulin before extending a respectful bow. "Sect Master..."
A faint smile appeared on Tang Wulin's face, and he stood up before laying a hand on Li Yun's shoulder to prevent him from sinking into a deep bow. "We're a family, Hall Master Li. Rest assured, I'll prioritize our Tang Sect and Shrek Academy's interests above all else at all times. Thank you for your hard work here in the Dou Spirit Empire. I won't try to convince you to support me with my words. After all, actions speak much louder than words, isn't that right?"
Li Yun looked deep into Tang Wulin's eyes, and said, "Rest assured, Sect Master, I'll find a place in Spirit Wave City for everyone to stay right away."
This young man who was nothing more than a Soul Sage truly was full of surprises. Just how exceptional did he have to be to have received acknowledgment from so many top-tier powerful beings? Li Yun still didn't know much about Tang Wulin, but he definitely didn't dare to disobey Holy Spirit Douluo Yali. She was one of the most important people in his life!
Over 30 years ago, his entire family had been struck by disaster. Yali happened to be passing through at the time, and she saved his entire family, and even cure his son of his disability. He could still clearly recall the scenes leading up to the Holy Spirit Douluo's arrival. Her descent was accompanied by heavenly symphonies, and in his eyes, she was like a godly being. Even now, after he had become a powerful Hyper Douluo, that first impression had never changed.
He had been greatly shaken by the sight of Yali's white hair. She had brushed it off in a casual manner, but he could imagine just how much emotional trauma and torment she would've had to endure.
All he wanted to do now was to do everything he could for her. If she wanted him to obey Tang Wulin, then that was what he would do. At the same time, he wanted to see for himself just what was so special about this young sect master.
Rooms were organized for everyone in an antiquated hotel in Spirit Wave City. Due to the fact that this was the center of the Spirit Pagoda's sphere of influence, Li Yun had taken cautionary measures and split everyone up into groups of three to five, and they all checked into the hotel at different times. Li Yun had also adopted a simple disguise. He was quite a renowned figure in the Dou Spirit Empire, so if he were to be spotted here, the Spirit Pagoda would definitely be made aware of his arrival.
"Do you have any other instructions, Sect Master?" Li Yun asked in a respectful manner after accompanying Tang Wulin to his room. His respectful mannerisms were genuine now, in contrast with the front he had put on out of necessity.
Tang Wulin turned to Li Yun, and asked, "Hall Master Li, are you familiar with Spirit Wave City?"
Li Yun replied, "I'm relatively familiar with this city; what would you like to know?"
Tang Wulin explained, "I actually came to Spirit Wave City for two people. Please wait for a moment; I'll detect whether they're here or not, and if they are, I may need you to provide me with specific instructions to get to where they are."
Tang Wulin sat down with his legs crossed on the couch as he spoke, and he closed his eyes before slowly releasing his spiritual power.
He was naturally extremely familiar with the auras of his parents, and at the Spirit Domain realm, his spiritual power was able to cover an extremely large area. As such, it was naturally the best course of action to search for his parents using his spiritual power.
Li Yun stood beside Tang Wulin, and he was immediately astonished by the spiritual fluctuations being released by him.
Was this Spirit Domain realm spiritual power?
As a Hyper Douluo, he naturally possessed exceptional spiritual power as well, and that made him even more aware of just how important spiritual power was to Soul Masters of higher calibers.
Hence, he had always been cultivating his spiritual power arduously in the hope of being able to ascend to a higher level in the future. As such, he was more than aware of what Spirit Domain realm spiritual power entailed. This was a prerequisite for one to reach the Limit Douluo level, and it was synonymous to the most powerful beings in this world.
Never did he think that this seven-ring sect master would've developed such an incredible level of spiritual power already. What was even more astonishing to him was that after Tang Wulin released his own spiritual power, it felt as if he had fused as one with the entire world around him. It was as if he were a part of this room, or a constituent component of the air around him. Even with his immense powers, he wouldn't be able to sense Tang Wulin's presence if he were to close his eyes.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
