Chapter 576 - Ten-thousand-year Soul Ring
The ten-thousand-year great white demon shark’s massive body fell into the water with a giant splash and thrashed about, creating numerous powerful waves that killed several nearby sharks. Bewildered, the other sharks retreated as they watched their leader’s frenzy.
At that moment, blood sprayed into the air. A claw burst from the back of the great white demon shark leader, ripping through bones and muscle like nothing. black ring rose from its body. It was a ten-thousand-year soul ring! Such a ring was extremely rare in the modern era and signified the death of the ten-thousand-year great white demon shark!
Tang Wulin was undoubtedly no match against a ten-thousand-year great white demon shark in a direct confrontation. Knowing this, he understood that his chances of victory were slim. In order to kill the ten-thousand-year great white demon shark, he had to use unconventional methods and he only had one shot!
Although the great white demon shark’s attack did put Tang Wulin in a dangerous situation, he was able to mitigate most of the impact by relying on Golden Dragon Body and his gauntlet. It had only been a probing attack from the shark after all.
It was Tang Wulin’s plan all along to have the ten-thousand-year great white demon shark chase after him and try to swallow him whole.
He defended against the shark’s powerful jaws with Golden Dragon Tyrant Body, which also filled his body with strength. Although Golden Dragon Tyrant Body was weaker in the ocean against enemies that used ranged attacks, it still granted him domineering power in close quarters. So he had bet on that power to destroy the shark from within.
And Tang Wulin won his bet!
By showing weakness, he baited the ten-thousand-year great white demon shark into a situation perfect for a reversal!
With both a body of steel and Golden Dragon Tyrant body, Tang Wulin’s defensive strength soared and enabled him to endure the bite of the ten-thousand-year great white demon shark. Then from within, he directed all of the energy he absorbed into his claw and unleashed a magnificent Golden Dragon Dreadclaw down the shark’s throat. The innards of a beast were always a weak point and the ten-thousand-year great white demon shark was no exception.
Tang Wulin ripped his way out of the shark’s body, blood seeping into the water around him. As the dead body of the shark began its slow descent into the dark depths of the ocean, he raised his head to the heavens and roaring his victory!
Mu Ye watched in shock. He never imagined this outcome. That kid planned this all! He actually killed one of the kings of the sea, a ten-thousand-year great white demon shark!
However, pain stabbed his body, twisting its daggers especially hard where the shark had bit him. While Golden Dragon Tyrant Body had mitigated most of the damage, it still felt like his bones were broken.
But none of that mattered. He survived. His blood coursed through him like a raging river and he instantly felt much better.
The herd of sharks were stunned by Tang Wulin’s roar, but they snapped out of their stupor a second later and immediately raced toward him.
Tang Wulin’s heart jumped in alarm. Huh? Why are they still coming after me? I just killed their leader! Normally they would flee after their leader is killed! Aren’t they afraid of death? His face stiffened. This wasn’t part of his calculations. The true nature of great white demon sharks was far different than what he imagined.
Tang Wulin’s expression was blank even as the first thousand-year great white demon shark approached. He had been able to kill the ten-thousand-year shark, but to do so he had used all his trump cards. Now he only had a third of his strength remaining. Not only that, he was up against over forty thousand-year great white demon sharks! Can I kill them all? No way!
Up in the sky, Mu Ye gave an amused smile as he muttered to himself, “Damn brat. You thought this was land? Don’t underestimate the bloodthirstiness of great white demon sharks! In their eyes, everything is just food to improve their strength, even other great white demon sharks. The corpse of their leader is a treasure to them. You didn’t understand their nature at all.”
Wholly unaware of what Mu Ye had muttered, Tang Wulin gathered his wits as the sharks descended upon him.
Beams of light flew toward him in such numbers that it was impossible to evade.
Tang Wulin dove back into the water and dragged the sinking ten-thousand-year shark’s corpse in front of him. Its body trembled as light beams smashed into its flesh one after the other. Although it was dead now, the corpse of a ten-thousand-year soul beast was not to be underestimated and managed to hold up long enough under the barrage to let Tang Wulin escape into the water.
The herd of sharks dashed to the carnage of flesh and bones a second later. To Tang Wulin’s surprise, most of the herd completely ignored him. His eyes went wide in horror the next moment. Holy shit! They’re eating their leader! Damn savages! He finally understood the nature of these sharks. A smile spread on his lips as he realized what a boon this was for him. With this, he wouldn’t have to face the entire herd of sharks.
Tang Wulin spread out his bluesilver grass and used it to propel himself out of the water. The further he could get away from the mangled remains of the ten-thousand-year shark, the higher his chances of survival.
The ocean, dyed crimson with the blood of the ten-thousand year shark, soaked into Tang Wulin’s bluesilver grass as he skipped along the water’s surface. Under the pale moonlight, he looked like a demon skirting along the water.
A shark broke off from the rest of the herd and chased after Tang Wulin.
Stealing a glance back, Tang Wulin summoned his hammers in a flash of silver and threw them at the shark pursuing him. The hammer slammed right into its head and instantly knocked it unconscious. He sent out a strand of bluesilver grass to retrieve the hammer and continued gliding across the water away from the herd.
Before Tang Wulin could move much further, the surrounding water began to boil angrily. Numerous jets of water shot toward Tang Wulin and the moment the resulting waves washed over him, he felt his body go rigid and the shining scales of Golden Dragon Body disappearing.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
