Jiang Wuyue had already been reduced to such a sorry state by Tang Wulin before he had used the power of his golden soul rings; if he were to use his most powerful soul ring now, there was no way that Jiang Wuyue would be able to defend himself!
However, Tang Wulin merely smiled and ignored Jiang Qiyue's panicked cry.
A golden halo spread from beneath his feet, quickly proliferating outward. Tang Wulin strode toward Jiang Wuyue's direction, and soon, the golden halo that seemed to be filled with complex patterns had enshrouded Jiang Wuyue within.
Almost at the exact same moment, Jiang Wuyue let loose an extremely boisterous dragon's roar, and the back of his massive body also instantly straightened.
His black scales turned into a dark golden color, and all of his fear and inferiority instantly vanished as his blank mind was filled with extreme excitement.
At this moment, Jiang Wuyue felt as if his blood had been set alight, and his soul power was multiplying at a rapid rate. He had never felt so powerful in his life, and the overflowing power within his body struck him with the urge to tear heaven and earth apart with his bare hands!
"Roar! Roar! Roar!" A string of enraged roars erupted out of his mouth, and the dark golden color on his body glowed brighter and brighter, making it look as if he'd been entirely basked within a vast expanse of golden light. Even his six soul rings had taken on a faint golden color.
He reflexively glanced at his own body to find that his Tyrant Dragon scales, which had originally been quite uneven, had become a lot more uniform than before. They now resembled even and uniform rhomboids, and the dark golden light seemed to have given his scales more substance. What was even more exhilarating to Jiang Wuyue was the sense of overwhelming strength that was relentlessly surging out of his body. Even if he were to face a Ba'an right now, he'd be confident in his ability to tear it apart.
After breaking his ninth Golden Dragon King seal, Tang Wulin discovered that all four of his Golden Dragon King soul skills had evolved, and this was something that had never happened before. The soul skill that had evolved most prominently was his fourth soul skill, the Violent Golden Dragon Domain. The area of his domain had increased by over twofold, and its effects had also become more potent.
Jiang Wuyue was enhanced so significantly by Tang Wulin's domain as his Tyrant Dragon bloodline was extremely close to Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon King bloodline, and his powers had increased by more than 50%.
There was an extremely drastic change from being dominated by Tang Wulin's bloodline to being enhanced by it instead.
Tang Wulin withdrew his golden soul rings, and said, "Let's stop here for today, Superior."
Without the enhancements from the golden soul rings, all of Jiang Wuyue's enhanced power instantly vanished, and his scales returned to normal, as did his aura. However, the pain that he'd been struck by as a result of their last collision was alleviated by the enhancement effects.
"Wh, what kind of ability was that? Why did it make me feel so much more powerful?" Jiang Wuyue stared at Tang Wulin with intense focus in his eyes. At this point, he had already completely forgotten that this man was his rival in love. As a member of the Blood God Legion, he revered power above all else, and this evoked within him an extremely strong sense of curiosity toward Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin smiled, and said, "That could be because our bloodlines have shared origins."
He couldn't release his Tyrant Dragon soul spirit in here as this place wasn't big enough to contain it.
"Our bloodlines have shared origins? What's your martial soul?" Jiang Wuyue asked in a perplexed manner.
Tang Wulin replied, "This has nothing to do with my martial soul; it's solely related to my bloodline."
Jiang Wuyue was still quite befuddled. "Wait a minute! Your aura suggests that you're a five-ring Soul King, so why do you only have four soul rings? And why are they golden?"
A wry smile appeared on Tang Wulin's face. "That's a bit of a long story. To put it in simple terms, those aren't my soul rings; they're a bloodline ability of mine. My martial soul is something else."
He clearly didn't plan to give an in-depth explanation.
Jiang Wuyue continued, "How long can you maintain that last ability for?"
Tang Wulin replied, "I should be able to maintain it for half an hour with no issues."
Jiang Wuyue's eyes immediately lit up. Half an hour? He had been enhanced to an unimaginably powerful degree just then! This ability, combined with the melee combat prowess Tang Wulin had displayed, instantly made him look at Tang Wulin through new eyes.
Tang Wulin was feeling rather uncomfortable in the face of Jiang Wuyue's intense scrutiny. "Superior, about those 1,000 accolades..."
"Ah, yes, I'll give them to you right away!" Jiang Wuyue draped an arm over Tang Wulin's shoulder before raising his own bracelet to transfer 1,000 accolades over to him.
"Everything that happened just then was just a misunderstanding, so just forget about, Brother! You said you already have a girlfriend, right?" Jiang Wuyue asked with a friendly look on his face.
Tang Wulin couldn't really just turn a cold shoulder to him, so he nodded, and replied, "That's right, I already have a girlfriend, and we love each other very much."
"Then this was even more of a misunderstanding! I feel like the special service department doesn't really suit you all that well. How about you come to my Iron Will Corps first battalion? With your talents, you'll be able to earn accolades extremely quickly. I'll get our brothers to help you out a bit, and I guarantee you that I'll get you up to captain rank in a year at most. When that time comes, you can be my vice-battalion commander, whaddya think? Also, as soon as you come over to my battalion, I'll make you the commander of the strongest company in my battalion. You can even beat me in battle; no one's going to have any objections to this arrangement."
Vice-battalion commander in a year? That seemed to be quite close to the major rank...Tang Wulin was rather tempted by this offer.
Right at this moment, the doors of the combat room were flung open, and two people walked in from outside.
"How dare you try to take my colleague, Jiang Wuyue!" The one walking at the forefront wasn't Jiang Qiyue. Instead, it was Long Yuxue, who had rushed over here after being informed of what was happening.
Jiang Qiyue had given Long Yuxue a call right before Tang Wulin and Jiang Wuyue's sparring match had commenced. She was still very grateful toward Tang Wulin for not eating her into bankruptcy.
However, after Long Yuxue arrived, she was immediately greeted by the sight of Jiang Wuyue slinging an arm across Tang Wulin's shoulder and tempting him with an alluring offer.
Jiang Wuyue's immediately sagged like a deflated balloon at the sight of her, and he hurriedly put on a fawning smile as he said, "I'm not trying to undermine you or anything, Yuxue; it's just that it would be a terrible waste if Brother Tang doesn't come over to our Blood Division with his melee combat prowess!"
Long Yuxue harrumphed coldly, "Promising military ranks in private is prohibited in our legion; I'm going to tell Division Commander Xu about this! Also, Wulin has only just come to our legion, and he's still very unfamiliar with everything here. Our special service department also needs someone like him, so at the very least, he won't be going to a battle unit in the immediate future. At this point in time, he'll be more useful to our special service department. If you want to take him, you'll have to get past me first!"
If it were someone else standing in Long Yuxue's place, then Jiang Wuyue would most likely immediately get into an argument with them. However, he was completely powerless in the face of Long Yuxue, and raised his arms in a resigned manner as he said, "Alright, I surrender; I won't try to take Wulin from your department."
Long Yuxue grabbed Tang Wulin away from Jiang Wuyue, and said, "Let's go."
Tang Wulin was dragged out of the combat room by Long Yuxue, and even now, Jiang Qiyue still had a strange expression on her face as she looked at him. After they departed, she immediately turned to her brother, and asked, "Brother, is this Tang Wulin really that freakishly strong? You looked like you stood no chance against him at all!"
A sour expression appeared on Jiang Wuyue's face. "I don't know what happened, either; his aura seems to naturally dominate mine. That wasn't an actual battle anyway; perhaps I'd have a chance if I fought with all my power and used my battle armor as well, but he seemed to have held back the entire time as well, so I'm not confident in my ability to beat him. Do you know how old he is?"
Jiang Qiyue replied, "I heard from Sister Yuxue that he's 21."Previous Chapter Next Chapter
