In particular, the countless reddish-golden dragon patterns that had appeared at the center of the drill ground immediately sent a burst of adrenaline surging through their veins.
This was true power! The Pavilion Master's transformation was way too badass!
Yi Zichen's hands had already unconsciously balled up into tight fists, and he decided there and then that he was going to become just as powerful as the pavilion master someday.
Tang Wulin's dragon core and soul core were fully activated, and even his spiritual power had formed a small yet concentrated protective barrier that completely enveloped the short spear.
His dragon's repulse had been released onto every single one of his scales, and even his three-word battle armor and Golden Blood Dragon domain had both been released.
At his current power level, he was definitely equipped to withstand a ninth-grade soul missile explosion, but not contain the force of such an explosion with his own body!
He didn't know how much power this short spear was going to unleash, but he didn't have time to think about that; his only thought was that he had to protect Shrek Academy.
One second passed by, followed by two, then three...
Tang Wulin had done everything in his power to contain this explosion, but it simply didn't come. The spear seemed to have lost all of its heat and was lying still in his arms. Only its source positive circulation core was still shimmering with faint light.
"Do you really think I'm insane? What an idiot." A mocking voice rang out in the distance as the pink mecha rose to its feet.
It had to be said that her mecha's defensive prowess was truly astonishing, as evidenced by the fact that it didn't seem difficult at all for her to stand back up even after withstanding that attack.
Only then did Tang Wulin heave a sigh of relief as he returned to his human form, but he then immediately flared up with rage. "You're telling me you're NOT insane?"
Ling Zichen shrugged in response. "I only wanted to trick you into getting more serious; I didn't anticipate that you would display such a strong reaction."
For the first time ever in his life, Tang Wulin was struck by the urge to hit a woman.
"Alright, let's stop here. I can tell that you were holding back, and I'm no match for you. The energy fluctuations erupting from your body just now have already exceeded five times the normal tolerance limit for my mecha. Of course, like I said, that's only the normal tolerance limit."
Tang Wulin quickly calmed himself down before asking in a cold voice, "Then what happens if you go beyond that?"
Ling Zichen chuckled coldly in response. "I'd take you down with me in a massive explosion."
"Sure you will. If you weren't a woman, hmph..." Tang Wulin harrumphed coldly as he tossed Ling Zichen's short spear back to her.
The source positive circulation core on the spear flashed once, and it decelerated in mid-air before gently falling into her grasp.
"You'd better believe me; I'm even scared of myself when I get carried away. Alright, now you have the right to ask me to accompany you on this operation."
Tang Wulin had no idea how she managed to do it, but the pair of spears disappeared directly into her body as she spoke.
Tang Wulin replied, "Alright, but I have a condition."
"Go on," Ling Zichen prompted.
Tang Wulin said, "You must follow my orders at all times. Otherwise, you won't be allowed to come."
"That's fine, as long as your orders are within reason." For some reason, this mad scientist had suddenly become a lot more easy-going.
Tang Wulin was rather taken aback by her sudden willingness to cooperate, and he couldn't help but pause momentarily.
"I always keep my promises," Ling Zichen said in a cold and proud manner.
"That's good to hear. Let's go." Tang Wulin withdrew his battle armor and Golden Blood Dragon domain as he spoke, then departed from the drill ground.
The battle between the two of them had actually lasted only a very short time, but the students spectating on the second floor were already struggling to catch their breath.
They couldn't sense the energy fluctuations through the protective barrier, but the power displayed by the two combatants was enough to completely captivate them on a visual basis.
The only one in the class who saw the battle clearly from start to finish was Luo Guixing.
Luo Guixing could tell that that suit of pink armor definitely wasn't battle armor as it didn't possess the special properties of battle armor.
In the face of Tang Wulin's powerful attacks, she had constantly been retaliating through outbursts of immense energy rather than fusing her soul power with her battle armor and martial soul. Could it be that that was a mecha? But how could a mecha be so small and powerful?
Furthermore, the final part of that battle left him quite perplexed as well.
In any case, that battle had given his young students an extremely vivid demonstration.
There was no need to ask his students for their thoughts; just the looks in their eyes alone told him that their enthusiasm was at an all-time high.
He clapped his hands to draw the attention of the students, and said, "Alright, I won't ask for your thoughts after witnessing that battle; show me through your actions. For the first sparring match, we'll have the first group up against the second group; show me what you've got. If you want to become as powerful as the pavilion master, then you'll have to dedicate all of your effort and determination for a very long time to come."
Tang Wulin quickly strode out of the drill ground, while Ling Zichen followed along in silence behind him without withdrawing her mecha. It was very difficult for her to imagine that a human could unleash such fearsome power with their body alone. This was the power of a truly exceptional Soul Master!
Her mecha was completely unique in this world, and that was why she was so powerful, but what was he relying upon? His own cultivation?
Obviously, Ling Zichen wasn't an easy-going character. If any other person had demanded that she follow their orders, she would've most likely already given them a slap across the face. However, for some reason, she unconsciously agreed to this man's instructions as she couldn't forget his reaction when she had proclaimed that her spear possessed the power of a ninth-grade soul missile explosion.
Instead of taking evasive measures, he had used his own body to completely envelop that spear, preparing to use his body to smother an explosion that would most likely have killed him.
In Ling Zichen's mind, there was no way that a normal human or battle armor master could withstand a ninth-grade soul missile explosion, yet this man had done what he had done without any hesitation.
Despite her overbearing and perhaps even slightly insane personality, she couldn't help but be deeply touched by his actions.
He was protecting this academy and everything around him. What kind of passion could spur one on to give up their life for others?
Did he love this academy just as much as she loved her research?
It seemed that this outrageously good-looking man wasn't a sissy, after all!
Thus, the two of them returned to the guest hall.
Ling Zichen made a casual gesture, and her mecha was instantly withdrawn. Even with Tang Wulin's immense spiritual power, he was unable to detect exactly how she had done that. It was as if the mecha had truly disappeared into her body, and that was incredible to Tang Wulin.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
