The one walking at the forefront of the group was a young woman in a Major military uniform. She had an exceptional figure, and even her military uniform couldn't conceal her attractive curves. However, she wore an extremely cold and forbidding expression on her face.
The soles of her leather boots clicked against the metal ground as she walked, and she asked in a cold voice, "Have you completed the tally yet? Are there any leads about the two fifth-grade soul bombs from last time?"
The man walking by her side was a major as well, and he appeared to be somewhere between 30 and 40 years of age. He wore a slightly fawning smile on his face as he replied, "We've been investigating this matter, Advisor Shen, but we haven't found any leads yet. We've also completed a tally of all of our soul bombs, and the figures are identical to what they were last time."
Advisor Shen stopped and turned to look at him with a cold expression. "So what you're saying is that those two fifth grade soul bombs really have gone missing. Do you know what that entails?"
The male major's expression changed slightly, and sweat was beginning to bead on his forehead as he said, "I do; I'll be sure to find some leads as quickly as I can. We've already gone through all of the surveillance footage, but we were unable to find anything. We're planning on installing more cameras in the warehouse so that there are no blind spots, so please put in a good word for me with the general. You know me; I would never steal from the base."
Advisor Shen chuckled coldly, "I wouldn't be so quick to rule you out from the list of suspects. In any case, I don't care about all that; all I want are results, Major Chen. If you can't find those two fifth grade soul bombs, even the general can't save your skin. I'll give you another three days; you know what'll happen if you can't find those soul bombs during that time."
"Yes, yes, I'll be sure to do my best." Major Chen wiped the cold sweat from his forehead as he heaved a dejected internal sigh.
"Take me on a tour of the warehouse." Only then did Advisor Shen's cold expression eased slightly, and she continued to survey the warehouse with Major Chen in accompaniment.
This was a perfect unmissable opportunity!
Tang Wulin pounced almost without any hesitation.
There were only four soldiers accompanying the two majors, and it only took Tang Wulin an instant to knock them all out.
Advisor Shen and Major Chen immediately responded and turned around, but at that point, there were already over 10 Bluesilver Emperor Vines rushing toward them.
Major Chen let loose a cry of surprise as he attempted to reach for the soul pistol hanging from his waist, only to be bound tightly in a cocoon of Bluesilver Emperor vines. Meanwhile, Advisor Shen appeared to only be in her twenties, but she reacted extremely quickly. She immediately sprang back before four soul rings quickly emerged beneath her feet, and they consisted of two yellows and two purples.
She was a four-ring Soul Ancestor!
Her aura abruptly cooled, and the air temperature also plummeted. Countless snowflakes appeared in the air, hurtling directly toward Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin knew that he was already standing below one of the surveillance cameras, so he couldn't afford to be delayed. Four golden soul rings appeared at the same time, and the third soul ring immediately lit up.
A loud Golden Dragon Roar immediately made the entire warehouse tremor slightly, and Advisor Shen's entire body shuddered violently. The four soul rings that had just appeared around her were abruptly shattered, and she stumbled as a wave of intense dizziness washed over her.
Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon Roar was effective even against opponents of a higher soul power rank than himself, let alone this Advisor Shen, who possessed a far inferior cultivation rank.
Tang Wulin appeared behind her in flash, giving her lower abdomen a brisk chop with his left hand while his right hand closed itself around her neck.
Her soul power was instantly sealed as a result, and Tang Wulin threatened in a cold voice, "Don't move or I'll kill you!"
Advisor Shen still hadn't completely recovered from the effect of the Golden Dragon Roar, and the sense of dizziness she'd been afflicted by was intensified even further by the strong masculine aura surging toward her.
After striking her dantian with his left hand, Tang Wulin wound his left arm around her slender waist. Her body was quite cool and particularly sensitive to temperature changes, so the scorching masculine aura emanating from Tang Wulin's body made her body feel quite feeble and limp.
Advisor Shen immediately realized that an enemy had infiltrated the legion base, but it was already too late; she was completely powerless and unable to resist.
"Y, you won't get away with this!" Shen Xing was filled with fury and shame. No man had even been in such close contact with her, and she didn't even see what Tang Wulin looked like. She could only sense bursts of strong masculine energy emanating from his body, so he was most likely quite young.
"We'll see about that," Tang Wulin chuckled coldly as he quickly rushed out of the warehouse with Shen Xing held as hostage.
At this point, loud sirens had already sounded. This warehouse was an extremely important location in the base, and the fact that it was being attacked was most definitely a dire emergency.
Tang Wulin held Shen Xing's body with one arm while removing the identification card hanging from her neck with his other hand.
It was undoubtedly the case that she held quite a high position in the Northsea Legion as he was able to use her identification badge to pass through three electronic doors in a row.
Tang Wulin knew that they were currently situated deep underground beneath the Northsea Legion base, so the first thing that he had to do was to get to the surface.
"How do I get to the surface from here?" Tang Wulin asked.
"I won't tell you anything! Why don't you kill me if you dare!" Shen Xing replied in a cold voice.
Tang Wulin chuckled coldly, "Kill you? Why would I do that? I'm sure you're not afraid of death, but for a woman, death is far from the most terrifying thing that could happen."
Tang Wulin waved his right hand as he spoke, and a cold sensation suddenly surged along Shen Xing's right arm as the sleeve of her military uniform was torn to shreds.
"Argh!" She let loose a loud scream as a strong sense of horror spread through her entire body.
Tang Wulin's sinister voice sounded beside her ear. "Do you know what I'm about to do now? I'm sure the entire Northsea Legion is looking at the footage from the security cameras right now; don't you think we should put on a good show for them?"
"You're a bastard!" Tears flowed from her eyes in an uncontrollable manner.
Tang Wulin raised his right golden dragon claw again. "Are you going to tell me or not? If you don't, your entire top will be next."
Was he really going to do that? The answer was obviously no. However, he was delivering a threat, so he had to make it convincing. After being abused by Old Demon Nightmare for so long, Tang Wulin discovered that his heart had become a lot harder, and it also became easier for him to find other people's weaknesses.
In the case of women, especially cold and proud women like Shen Xing, the most effective threat often wasn't death. A woman like her definitely held her reputation in higher regard than her life.
Of course, if Shen Xing continued to put up resistance, then Tang Wulin couldn't do anything. It wasn't like he could actually strip her. However, it was quite clear that Shen Xing's mental fortitude wasn't as resolute as it looked.
"Turn right!" she screamed, and her body was already trembling uncontrollably.
She couldn't imagine what would become of her if her body were to be revealed in front of all of these cameras. She would go insane! That would truly be an experience worse than death. Not only would her reputation be completely tarnished, she would also be bringing shame to her entire family!
Tang Wulin said in a pleased voice, "You should've complied from the very beginning. If I ask you something and you don't answer next time, I won't give you a chance to reconsider. Now that I think about it, you're also wearing pants as well."
"You bastard!" Shen Xing wanted nothing more than to tear the man behind her into pieces with her bare hands.
Tang Wulin chuckled, "There are a lot worse people than me out there."
Sure enough, at the conclusion of the corridor to the right was an elevator. Tang Wulin swiped Shen Xing's identification card, and the doors of the elevator immediately parted. He stepped into the elevator with Shen Xing in tow.
He wasn't worried that he'd be trapped as he had a hostage. Furthermore, this was definitely no ordinary advisor. After all, four-ring Soul Ancestor military advisors were certainly far from common, so she had to be quite an important figure.
On top of that, he had acted extremely quickly, so the Northsea Legion wouldn't have had much time to react.
As things turned out, Tang Wulin's judgment was spot on. During the ascension of the elevator, he encountered no impediments whatsoever. However, in the instant that the elevator doors opened again, several tens of soul laser guns had already been aimed at him.
"Don't move! Let go of Advisor Shen at once!" A deep voice sounded, and it had come from a brawny male military official standing at the forefront of the soldier's up ahead. This man was a lieutenant colonel.
Tang Wulin locked his left golden dragon claws around Shen Xing's neck, and a calm smile appeared on his face. "Let me through or I'll kill her."
The lieutenant colonel harrumphed coldly, "Aren't you a student of Shrek Academy? Would your academy allow you to kill innocent military officials? Who are you trying to bluff? Surrender right now or we'll have to take you down by force!"
It was undoubtedly the case that Tang Wulin had already been recognized.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
