Chapter 1266: Return of the Sect Master

From this perspective, Li Yun was actually taking a lot of vindictive pleasure in the Spirit Pagoda's misfortune. The Spirit Pagoda had been involved in the destruction of the Tang Sect headquarters, so he wouldn't feel any sympathy toward them even if their entire organization were to be eradicated. 

However, none of this answered the pressing question of when their sect master was going to return. Ever since Shrek's Six Monsters had returned from the site of the incident, they had stayed in the hotel the entire time.

Furthermore, they had brought back some people, and they were all in the hotel as well. Even the members of the Tang Sect had no idea what they were doing.

I can't just keep waiting like this; I have to report this matter to the Amorous Douluo and request further instructions from him. 

Regardless of whether it was the discovery of Evil Soul Masters in the Spirit Pagoda or the destruction of the Spirit Pagoda headquarters, both were extremely important pieces of news that had to be reported back to the Tang Sect. In particular, he had to notify the Amorous Douluo of the deranged state that Tang Wulin had flown into.

With that in mind, he immediately rose to his feet and pulled out his soul communicator. He contacted his subordinate in Heaven Dou City to set up intercontinental communication right away and prepared to set off for Heaven Dou City.

When he emerged from the hotel, there was already a car waiting for him outside, yet just as he was about to get into the car, he was suddenly struck by the feeling that the air around him had cooled slightly. As a Hyper Douluo, he instantly reacted to this, and reflexively cast his gaze toward a certain direction.

There, a man in white activewear was making his way directly toward Li Yun. He wore a hat, and his head was slightly bowed, so his features were obscured. The cold sensation was emanating directly from his body.

This wasn't an actual change in temperature. Instead, it was an invisible aura that couldn't be felt unless one were to reach a certain cultivation rank.

The man raised his head and cast his gaze toward Li Yun, and Li Yun almost blurted out the words "Sect Master".

The young man in the hat was none other than Tang Wulin. The suit of white activewear complemented his tall and athletic figure, accentuating his muscular arms, slim waist, and long legs. His eyes were as bright and clear as a starry night sky, and there was no longer any hint of insanity within them.

Tang Wulin didn't appear to be walking very quickly, but it only took him a few steps to reach Li Yun. It was as if the air around him had become more sluggish.

"Sorry to make you worry, Hall Master Li. Is everyone in the hotel?" Tang Wulin asked.

"They are; they haven't left the hotel ever since they returned. Sect Master, you..." Li Yun unconsciously lowered his head toward Tang Wulin as he spoke.

In the past, he had only respected Tang Wulin as he had the support of the Holy Spirit Douluo, but now, he had developed a hint of fear toward Tang Wulin, and he had clearly discarded his conceited demeanor. Even though this sect master was extremely young, he had just killed a Hyper Douluo with ease a few days ago! The only adjective that Li Yun could think of to describe him was "unfathomable".

Tang Wulin nodded in response. "Apologies for all of the trouble I've caused. I'll come to find you later." After that, the surrounding air seemed to grow sluggish once again, and Tang Wulin vanished from his field of view.

Li Yun turned toward the entrance of the hotel in a slightly slack-jawed manner. Was that the power of a domain?

Tang Wulin hadn't adopted any disguise, and there were many passersby on the street, but none of them had paid him any notice despite his exceptional looks.

It was as if he had entirely become one with the surrounding space itself, as if he didn't even exist.

No, this isn't the effect of a normal domain; this is a spiritual domain! 

Li Yun still hadn't reached the Spirit Domain realm, but he was a Hyper Douluo, after all, and had witnessed spiritual domains in the past.

In a sense, the domain that Tang Wulin had just displayed was the most profound spiritual domain he had ever seen. He couldn't exactly pinpoint what the effect of the domain was, but one thing was for sure in his mind: Tang Wulin was more powerful than he had been a few days ago, and not just by a little bit.

Tang Wulin strode into the hotel, and he reflexively began to assess his surroundings. His calm facade wavered slightly as he strode forward once again, and in the next instant, he appeared on the second floor. It was as if space and time could no longer bind him.

After waking up again, he discovered that Gu Yuena had already left, and she had only left him a note, telling him to look after himself. However, when he laid a hand over the platinum dragon scale hanging around his neck, he could sense her existence, and that she was situated somewhere not far away. It was just that he couldn't teleport himself to her side as she could. Perhaps that was because he didn't have a sufficient grasp on spatial elements.

The pain in his body had already vanished; his incredible regenerative abilities had allowed him to make a full recovery in just a day and a night. Even though his meridians were still aching, this pain was within his tolerance threshold.

The platinum dragon scale was releasing a faint cool aura that cleared both his mind and his heart. Tang Wulin discovered that his body had undergone considerable changes.

His mental capacity had expanded by over a third, and his spiritual power had also become more viscous, clearly indicating a qualitative change. The insanity of the Golden Dragon King had almost thrust him onto a path of destruction, but it had also allowed him to break his 12th Golden Dragon King seal. He had clearly made a breakthrough in his spiritual power, and his spiritual domain had already been completely consolidated. However, due to the excessive increase in spiritual power in too short a timeframe, his control was still lacking, which was why Li Yun had been able to sense the changes taking place around him. This was a result of the time-warping effect stemming from a lack of control over his own spiritual power.

Another thing that he was unable to control was the effect of the Ice God Bead. He was still unable to completely conceal the cold aura emanating from it, and that was something that he would have to work on over time. Not only was the Ice God Bead able to repress his violent tendencies, it was also nourishing his body in a subtle manner.

If the Golden Dragon King bloodline were a scorching flame and the Mysterious Heaven Method was the most neutral and placid soul power, then the Ice God Bead would be cool and refreshing water.

With the neutralizing effect of this cool aura, the terrifying scorching violence stemming from the breakage of the 12th Golden Dragon King seal was neutralized, thereby resulting in a qualitative change that significantly increased his soul power. His body felt far more comfortable than before, and the negative side-effects stemming from the breakage of the 12th seal had also been significantly alleviated.

On top of that, his soul power had reached rank 80, and he was now a Soul Douluo.

At the same time, after the 12th seal was broken, he had attained his sixth golden soul ring. However, he hadn't yet had a chance to examine all of the changes that had taken place within his own body as the first thing he did after waking up was contact the Beautiful Silk Tulip.

His location hadn't been all that far away from the hotel, and all of the plant system Great Beasts had been nourished by the seed of life for quite some time now, so they could leave his body for a certain period without any repercussions. Through their spiritual connection, Tang Wulin received a piece of fantastic news; his father was now in a stable condition. However, detailed communication couldn't be facilitated through spiritual fluctuations, so he immediately rushed to the hotel as quickly as he could. As for the clothes he was wearing now, they had already been on him from the moment he woke up.

Tang Wulin made his way over to the room at the very end of the corridor on the hotel's second floor, then silently pushed the door open.

His mother was lying on one of the beds in a deep sleep, while his father was lying on another bed. Tang Ziran's face was quite pale, but he was most definitely breathing.

As soon as Tang Wulin caught sight of them, he began to release strong emotional fluctuations. In response, the dragon scale in front of his chest immediately began to glow with a faint platinum light, releasing a cloud of icy mist that enveloped his entire body. Under the stimulus of this cold mist, his spiritual fluctuations were quickly quelled.

Following the modifications Gu Yuena had made, the reverse scale of the Silver Dragon King had combined as one with the Ice God Bead, and it was now truly a divine item.

The Holy Spirit Douluo was seated on a chair with her legs crossed, and upon sensing Tang Wulin's arrival, she slowly opened her eyes before giving him a slight nod.

A shameful look appeared on Tang Wulin's face, and he extended an apologetic bow toward the Holy Spirit Douluo.

A burst of gentle white light was released from her body and enveloped Tang Wulin, making him feel as if he were basking in a relaxing hot spring.

A hint of surprise then appeared on the Holy Spirit Douluo's face. "You attained a spiritual domain?"

Tang Wulin nodded in response before speaking in an embarrassed manner. "Sorry for making you worry, Your Majesty. On that day..."

The Holy Spirit Douluo merely waved a hand to cut him off. "All that matters is that you managed to control it. If I had been in the same situation as you, I wouldn't be able to hold back, either. I'm not adept in battle, but I'd love nothing more than to kill all of those abhorrent scum." A hint of intense resentment flashed through her eyes as she spoke.
