Chapter 1357: Get Close To Him?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
As the Pagoda Master of Spirit Pagoda, Qiangu Dongfeng’s words were her command.
It did not take long before the long-range call was patched through.
“Pagoda Master, I hear that you’re looking for me.” Gu Yuena’s calm, pleasant voice was heard.
Qiangu Dongfeng’s expression improved upon hearing her voice. “Nana, are you doing okay over there?”
He was in a meeting room currently. The people in the room were all high-ranking officials of the Spirit Pagoda. It was a rare occurrence for them to catch Qiangu Dongfeng in such a pleasant mood.
They were well aware that Qiangu Dongfeng was telling them how important Gu Yuena was to him.
This spiriter was truly legendary in her powerful cultivation base. Ever since she joined the Spirit Pagoda, her clan had offered much assistance to the Spirit Pagoda within a few short years. She came from a mysterious, much older clan. Due to her clan’s assistance, the Spirit Pagoda managed to fabricate the black spirit souls. Moreover, the fabrication was done with much cost-savings. Consequently, the Spirit Pagoda progressed tremendously in its development which resulted in its prestigious position within the Federation.
Qiangu Dongfeng encouraged his grandson, Qiangu Zhangting to pursue Gu Yuena to be his partner. It was not just for Gu Yuena’s appearance and abilities. More importantly, there was a need for collaboration with Gu Yuena’s clan to carry out an extremely important experiment.
Thus, Gu Yuena was now highly regarded in the entire Spirit Pagoda. Even Leng Yaozhu’s status in Qiangu Dongfeng’s heart was inferior to Gu Yuena’s despite being her teacher.
Qiangu Dongfeng hoped that Gu Yuena could assist Qiangu Zhangting after getting married to him. Both husband and wife could inherit the Spirit Pagoda to take it to greater heights of development. Meanwhile, Qiangu Dongfeng could devote his efforts into pursuing what he had always wanted to pursue in the past.
“I’m okay. Thank you Pagoda Master for your concern,” answered Gu Yuena.
“Here’s the scenario. Nana, I’m sure you’re aware of the Tang Sect’s situation at the Star Luo Empire. What’s their current position in the Battle of Five Gods, especially Tang Wulin’s? I heard from your teacher that you were his classmate in the past?”
Gu Yuena remained quiet for a moment. After a short pause, she answered, “Yes, he was a classmate of mine in the past. He joined the other students to become the Shrek Seven Monsters afterward while I joined the Spirit Pagoda. We parted ways at the time.”
“What sort of person is he like? Do you know how he became the Tang Sect Master?” asked Qiangu Dongfeng.
Gu Yuena answered, “I don’t know how he became the Tang Sect Master in such a short time either. He is truly extraordinary in his natural endowment. Moreover, he has inherent leadership qualities. That’s why he is the leader of the Shrek Seven Monsters. Back then, we visited the Star Luo Empire and fought in a few battles together. He has always been the core and stabilizing force for the group. He is independent and willing to help others. However, he is headstrong and won’t listen to advice from others. Ever since Shrek City was destroyed, I lost contact with him. I haven’t seen him till the recent occasion.”
Headstrong in temperament? It would not be difficult to deal with Tang Wulin so long as he had a flaw. Qiangu Dongfeng pondered quickly. “Then, how did he suddenly become the Tang Sect Master? Aren’t you his classmate? See if you can get in touch with him in the Star Luo Empire. Find out his intentions if possible since he’s capable of becoming the newly-appointed Sect Master at such a young age. I’m sure Cao Dezhi and Zang Xin have a plan in mind to appoint him for such an important post. We must find out as soon as possible.”
“I’m sure you’re aware that our relationship with the Tang Sect has officially been severed at present. Under such circumstances, we need to acquire more accurate information in order to establish the relevant policies.”
Gu Yuena was stunned for a moment. “Do you want me to get close to him?”
“Yes. I don’t think that he’s aware of your identity as a spiriter. Besides, we haven’t declared it publicly. Give it a go. However, ensure your safety first as Tang Wulin is not so simple a person. Did you watch the Battle of Five Gods?”
Gu Yuena answered, “Yes, I did. The third round just ended recently. He won again. You’ll get to see the recording soon.”
“Won again? Is there no other worthy opponent in the Star Luo Empire anymore?” Qiangu Dongfeng abruptly raised his voice to a high pitch while his aura obviously became agitated.
“The Tang Sect is truly good at finding an alternative. Since they were suppressed by us in the Federation, they headed to the Star Luo Empire to restore their fame. This Tang Wulin, humph!”
Gu Yuena could sense the deep murderous intent radiating from Qiangu Dongfeng despite being separated by vast oceans.
“Alright, I’ll give it a try. How about Pagoda Master Zhang?”
“I’ll notify him. He has truly disappointed me this time. Will you please prepare a written report on Tang Wulin? The more detailed, the better. Also, include his growth and experiences, basically everything you know. We are lacking such information.”
“Alright.” answered Gu Yuena.
As he hung up, Qiangu Dongfeng’s expression grew gloomy. “Tang Wulin!”
He opened his eyes. Slightly confused, he found it was all dark in his surroundings.
Where is this?
With a sense of vagueness, Tong Yu sensed his surroundings. His whole body felt feeble.
It did not feel like death.
With the impending death earlier, it felt like he was headed to another world. He could feel his consciousness leaving him. His entire body felt light, seemingly floating in the air. He could not exert his strength, and there was no pain nor joy.
Yet, at this moment, he felt pain wreaking havoc on his body. His weak body seemed to have withered, and he lost all vitality.
‘Could it be that I’m still alive? How is it possible? My life energy has completely been exhausted at the time!’
“Your Excellency must be tired from yesterday,” said Tang Wulin to the Holy Spirit Douluo who had a hood on her head. They were walking side by side on a bustling street of the Star Luo Empire.
Yali smiled. “As a recovery-type soul master, it’s my utmost pleasure to treat others. It’s also the only time my recovery-type ability can produce an effect.”
Tang Wulin spoke from the bottom of his heart, “You’re the kindest person in the whole wide world.” It was precisely the Holy Spirit Douluo who had saved the Qilin Douluo from the brink of death yesterday. Without her, the corpse would be cold by now.
Memories flashed past Yali’s eyes. She could still remember the night she stood by his side by the Sea God Lake. She was leaning in his arms and proceeded to ask him softly.
“There are so many women who are fond of you. They’re outstanding and pretty. Yet, why do you choose me?”
“It’s because you’re the kindest woman in this world. I only want to hold you in my arms and take care of you all my life. The Sea God Lake is not huge, so it can only hold one Sea God Island. Likewise, my heart is not huge, so it can only hold one person, and that’s you.”
Tang Wulin turned his head to the side upon sensing the Holy Spirit Douluo’s sudden emotional fluctuation. He saw a layer of thin mist welling up in her eyes.
He knew that he had reminded her of some past sad events. Tang Wulin felt guilty. He was going to say something but the words could not leave his mouth somehow.
The Star Luo Coliseum was so jam-packed that not a drop of water could trickle through. The place was already congested even before admission time.
The number of people holding banners related to the Tang Sect were on the rise. There were even banners with the characters ‘Qilin Douluo’ written on them.
Undoubtedly, people had already forgiven the Qilin Douluo. In their hearts, the Qilin Douluo had died.
En Ci chose to conceal the fact that the Qilin Douluo was still alive. After all, he was a Limit Douluo-ranked powerhouse. If the Star Luo Empire had a trump card, then he would be the one who could perhaps provide support if a war was waged in the future.
The stream of people gave way wherever Tang Wulin and Yali passed. Moreover, they did not feel it at all. From a bird’s eye view, their movements seemed unaffected by the stream of people. On the other hand, the people on the ground did not realize that someone had glided past them.
“Your control over your power has improved.” Yali finally spoke again.
“Hmm, I understand better now.” replied Tang Wulin in a forthright manner.
Even though it had only been three short days since the Battle of Five Gods commenced, he could obviously feel the consolidation rate of his power increasing. He had finally become well-versed with his abilities from the consecutive breakthroughs earlier and elevated himself further.
“The opponent will not go easy on you after the Star Luo Empire has lost three consecutive rounds. Take good care of yourself.”
