Dai Tianling was feeling very remorseful. He should've displayed an even better attitude toward the Tang Sect and not been so conceited. Only after witnessing the Tang Sect's soul weapons did he truly realize just how far the Star Luo Empire was lagging behind.
He had to tie the Tang Sect and the Star Luo Empire together in the future regardless of the cost; this was the greatest opportunity for the empire to ascend to greater heights!
With that in mind, Tang Wulin's handsome face surfaced in Dai Tianling's mind again. He really wanted to kill this brat who had fled after thoroughly embarrassing his daughter, but at the same time, if it weren't for Tang Wulin, the people on the federal fleet would be the ones celebrating right now.
On top of that, he was even more interested in the violent storm that had been conjured up several days ago. If the Star Luo Empire could learn the ability to alter the weather from the Tang Sect, then it would no longer have to fear the federation.
Tang Wulin was naturally unaware of what Dai Tianling was thinking. At this moment, the Tang Sect submarine was traveling toward the Douluo Continent at its maximum speed.
After resting for a few days, Tang Wulin had already recovered to peak condition. They were situated deep in the sea, so they had no idea what was happening in the Star Luo Empire, but they had done everything they could. If the Star Luo Empire still couldn't keep the federal fleet at bay, then there was nothing further they could do.
"You really do seem to be fine now. Even I can no longer assess the condition of your body; all I can say is that your physical constitution has already exceeded what should be humanly possible. Even a Limit Douluo like myself can't compare with your physical constitution."
After returning from the imperial palace, the Holy Spirit Douluo had been constantly monitoring Tang Wulin's bodily condition during the past few days. She had been informed of what had happened during that storm, and she had been astonished that Tang Wulin had managed to remain completely unharmed during that fearsome storm of lightning.
At the same time, she was also very concerned for him and examined his body every day to ensure that he was fully healthy.
As it turned out, Tang Wulin truly possessed an inhuman body; not only was it completely unharmed, it had never been better.
His physical constitution could only be described as exceptional, and it was improving every single day. After becoming a true Titled Douluo, it was more important for Tang Wulin to consolidate his powers rather than seek to make further improvements, and he had done very well in this aspect.
The goal he had set for himself was very simple; he wanted to completely consolidate his own powers and fully master his own body prior to returning to the Douluo Continent.
"Thank you, Mother. I also feel like I've never been better." The drastic enhancements Tang Wulin's body had undergone had left him in very high spirits, and he could even sense that the threat posed to him by the Golden Dragon King seals had diminished significantly.
At this point, there were still six Golden Dragon King seals left, each of which was definitely going to be even more fearsome than the previous one. However, he was confident that he would at least be able to break the 13th seal without too much trouble.
Through his communication with his birth father, he knew that he had to delay the opening of the seals as much as possible. Otherwise, even the power that his father had left within his body wouldn't be able to repress the Golden Dragon King's destructive intent.
After all, that was the will of a top-tier god; unless he were to become a god himself, there was no way that he would be able to completely absorb the Golden Dragon King's power.
As such, even though he had undergone drastic improvements, Tang Wulin had no intention of opening any of the Golden Dragon King seals in the near future. At present, it was far more important for him to collate all of his current abilities.
He had benefited immensely from this trip, and the return trip of over two months was the perfect opportunity for him to digest all of the rewards he had reaped.
In the eyes of his friends, Tang Wulin seemed to be changing every single day. The domineering disposition he once had was now far more gentle, and he often appeared to be an ordinary person, but the more that this became the case, the more dangerous he appeared in everyone's eyes.
"Let's not, Boss," Xie Xie said as he looked at Tang Wulin with a reluctant expression.
Tang Wulin was left feeling rather speechless. "Haven't you always wanted to surpass me? So let's have a sparring match. Don't worry, I'll go easy on you."
Xie Xie immediately shook his head vigorously in response. "No, no, I have no intention of surpassing you; I've never had such intentions! Yue Zhengyu is the one who's always wanted to surpass you; you can ask him if you don't believe me!"
After witnessing that storm in person, Xie Xie had no interest in sparring with the monster that was Tang Wulin!
Xu Xiaoyan was standing off to the side, giggling with her hand over her mouth rather than begging for mercy in Yue Zhengyu's stead. Ye Xinglan and Yuanen Yehui were currently completing everyone's suits of three-word battle armor, and at this current rate, all of Shrek’s Seven Monsters would become three-word battle armor masters by the time they arrived back at the Douluo Continent.
Through his recent self-evaluation and consolidation, Tang Wulin had learned many things, but skills could only be put into practice through battle, so he sought out Xie Xie as a sparring partner.
"Go kill yourself, Xie Xie! When did I ever say I wanted to surpass Captain? How could you stab me in the back like that? Captain, I've always been your most loyal supporter. Xie Xie is constantly talking trash behind your back, so you should teach him a good lesson! We'll all be cheering for you!"
As soon as the voice trailed off, Yue Zhengyu emerged into the cabin, then took a pained glance at Xu Xiaoyan, who had notified him of what was happening.
Tang Wulin sighed in a resigned manner, "How about a two-on-one match?"
"No way!" both of them replied in unison.
Tang Wulin was now a Titled Douluo, while Yue Zhengyu had only just become a Soul Douluo two days ago, and Xie Xie hadn't even reached the Soul Douluo level yet. Even when they had been at the same cultivation rank, they had still been no match for Tang Wulin in a two-on-one battle; there was no way they would accept a sparring match with Tang Wulin at a far superior cultivation rank!
"You're a pair of cowards!" Tang Wulin felt quite speechless.
He was truly itching for an opponent and was even beginning to miss the Trial of Five Gods. The greater the pressure exerted on him, the more his latent potential could be stimulated, but there seemed to be no suitable opponent for him on this submarine.
Yali was a Limit Douluo, but her forte lay in healing rather than battle. As for everyone else, no one wanted to spar with him.
"How about we throw in Xiaoyan and Lizhi as well? We'll have a four-on-one match!" Tang Wulin proposed with an expectant expression.
Xu Xiaoyan pouted in a pitiable manner. "Captain, I'm a girl! How could you?"
Tang Wulin snapped, "Don't try to fool me! Even back when we first met, you've always had superb acting skills! You're not going to trick me! I miss Xinglan and Yuanen. If they were here, they definitely wouldn't turn down my challenge. If you don't even dare to face challenges, how will you continue to advance? Take me, for example; I always make the fastest progress when I'm constantly facing powerful opponents."
"No way!" the three of them exclaimed in unison.
"Fine, I'll go to the surface and train by myself then. Perhaps I'll encounter some powerful sea soul beast!" Tang Wulin grumbled in a disgruntled manner.
In reality, he knew that there was no way he would encounter any antagonistic sea soul beasts; with his Sea God aura, no sea soul beast would attack him.
The submarine drifted upward, and Tang Wulin flew out onto the surface of the sea. He inhaled a lungful of the fresh and moist air, and he instantly felt reinvigorated.
Xie Xie and the others weren't willing to spar with him, but they certainly weren't going to miss out on an opportunity to leave the submarine for some fresh air, so they had accompanied him. However, they didn't dare to approach him and only looked on from afar with wariness in their eyes.
A'Ruheng and Sima Jinchi were always up for a battle, but both of them were currently in seclusion, leaving Tang Wulin with no one to test his powers against, and this was not a good feeling.
A hint of purple flashed through his eyes, and a series of soul rings emerged from beneath his feet, comprised of four blacks, one greenish-golden, three orange-goldens, and a crimson ninth soul ring that was giving off a faint layer of purplish-golden light.
It was very likely that Tang Wulin was the first person in history to possess a 100,000-year-old Infernal Lightning Vine soul ring and soul spirit.
The nine soul rings resonated with one another, and even though their colors weren't uniform, the mystery of the greenish-golden soul ring, the spectacle of the orange-golden soul rings, and the regal majesty of the purplish-golden soul ring presented a marvelous combination to behold.
His long hair trailed down his back, and he began to give off a peculiar disposition. In the instant that he had appeared, even the seawater seemed to have become clearer.
Rich water elements revolved around his body, carrying him up into the air, and even in flight, there was no expenditure, thereby allowing him to constantly maintain his peak condition.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
