Under the sensing of Qian Ren Xue’s divine sense, Tang San had to stay within the edge of the Star Dou Forest. He laid flat on the ground, knitting his brows and musing.
With his current capacity, maintaining the Blue Silver Domain and the Vast Sea Protective Barrier for a long time wasn’t a big deal. In a regular situation, Tang San would compete with Qian Ren Xue regarding consuming energy to see who was more patient. But now, he understood that if this kept going on, he would be the one who was going to be impatient.
Qian Ren Xue could put aside the war on the front line now, but could I? My parents and teacher are there. If something happens, I will live in regret for the rest of my life.
Tang San was taking risks leaving the Heaven Dou Empire’s base along with the Shrek Seven Devils. The Spirit Empire’s force now was reinforced with six Supreme Title Douluos ranked over level ninety-five and five to six more Title Doulous. They were tough guys staying inside the Auspicious Hill Mountain Pass. Once Bibi Dong had recovered, the main force of the Heaven Dou Empire would be in deadly danger. Under such circumstances, Tang San had only one option: he had to become the Sea God quickly and return to the front line to control the situation in order to win this war.
On the other hand, Qian Ren Xue didn’t have that worry. Even if they were to continue to lurk like this, she wouldn’t bother. She didn’t feel her divine sense was getting weaker, quite in in contrast, it was getting stronger as time passed by. She guessed it was because she had just entered the god level and she hadn’t understood all the god level’s abilities yet. If she did, Tang San couldn’t stand a chance.
With the current situation, Tang San didn’t have the capacity to fight against her. His Sea God Trident was in her hands now. He knew that he couldn’t simply run away, he had to take his Sea God Trident back if he wanted to visit the Sea God Island again for his inheritance. However, taking an item from a god level spirit master would be even more challenging than the Sea God’s Seven Challenges. But the difficult thing right now was that he didn’t have one year of time to waste; it should be as short as possible.
I should keep calm. In such situation, I have to stay alerted. Facing this danger, Tang San calmly laid down inside the Blue Silver Grass bush, telling himself to be attentive. It had been long since he had been in such bad circumstances, being entirely surrounded like this. The strenuous challenge stimulated Tang San’s fighting spirit. He believed that a God couldn’t be almighty. His opponent was formidable, but he would have chances to find her flaws.
His mind gradually became placid. Tang San started to sort up his thoughts. Qian Ren Xue decided to show herself had startled me, but it was not because she is a god now. However, why she didn’t take the chance when I was absorbing the spirit rings to kill me or at least restrain me? She is a god level spirit master; I wouldn’t have a chance to protest against her. But she didn’t do that. She even showed that she wanted to help me. Was it because she is too confident with her god level capacity? No, it wouldn’t be that simple. I am still the Spirit Hall’s enemy, and she is the late Supreme Pontiff’s daughter. My father killed her father. She should have killed me! Do the people at the Spirit Hall are those whose desires need to be fulfilled at any costs?
Besides, Qian Ren Xue suddenly reached god level. It is unbelievable! Last time I met her, she was over level seventy. She could break through god level in just six years. I can say her luck and experience are even more than mine. So, there is only one possibility. Just like me going to the Sea God Island after I left the Heaven Dou City, she had started her Angelic God’s inheritance process. Then I guess the location of the Angelic God is in the Spirit Hall.
Grandmaster has mentioned the Angel Armament; maybe it is a holy weapon just like my Sea God Trident.
Through his conversation with Qian Ren Xue, Tang San found something else. It was the intense relationship between Qian Ren Xue and Bibi Dong. She was the lineal descendant of the six-winged seraphim, and she should be the next Supreme Pontiff after her father died, not Bibi Dong! The Great Consecrator of the Spirit Hall, Qian Dao Liu, with his tremendous capacity, it wouldn’t be hard for him to make her the Supreme Pontiff. But why he didn’t do that? There should be something between Qian Ren Xue and Bibi Dong. Now, Qian Ren Xue had become the Angelic God; she would fight to reclaim the power over the Spirit Empire.
No matter what, Tang San couldn’t get it clear why Qian Ren Xue didn’t hate him. He had broken her disguise in Heaven Dou Royal Family. What does she really want to do?
These secrets had blurred Tang San’s mind. But it wasn’t too long. The most important thing he had to do now was to escape this place and retrieve his Sea God Trident.
Tang San didn’t regret using the One Journey without Return to attack Qian Ren Xue. If he didn’t do that, he wouldn’t have the chance to run away. He had seventeen spirit rings right now, but the spirit abilities they had granted him wasn’t enough to prevent Qian Ren Xue; unless he could be a God and his spirit abilities could have the god’s aura. If not, they would be useless when confronting her.
The massive pressure was decreasing. Tang San’s thought started to flick quickly. He had to leave this place as soon as possible, gather with his comrades and inherit the Sea God title. The fact that Qian Ren Xue was a God now had urged his desire toward the god’s inheritance. Not only the power but also the ability to protect his family and friends. He should have the ability to oppress the Spirit Empire.
One day had gone rapidly!
Qian Ren Xue was still releasing waves of divine sense. She realized that this discontinued sensing had given her something good. She had just entered the god stage; this unceasing divine sense had boosted her profound understanding of the god’s power. The feeling of being able to hold everything in her hands was increasing.
Gold light blasted. She opened her eyes and smiled mischievously. She talked to herself:
“Now what, you can’t hold it anymore? Let see where you can hide!”
Her body disappeared together with the Sea God Trident in the illusory light shadow.
Where her divine sense could travel, she could get there too. Qian Ren Xue wasn’t flying. It looked like she had been using Blink consistently. Her pace was several times faster than her divine sense’s speed. In her thought, there were no such things as obstacles. Today, her divine sense was covering the entire Star Dou Forest, all creatures who weren’t God couldn’t help but shiver. They even didn’t dare to breathe hard. No one dared to disturb her.
She saw her target. Somehow it was strange because Tang San was standing still waiting for her there. It seemed he could predict it. He didn’t attempt to hide, smiling with all his gentle and deliberate manners.
Gold light flashed again. Qian Ren Xue stopped at around ten tchi in front of Tang San. She peered at him, knitting her elegant brows.
“Could you tell me what brings you confidence? Looks like you are not as panic-stricken as a stray dog.”
“Do you think I’m a stray dog?” Tang San barked.
Qian Ren Xue smiled:
“Of course not. Besides my grandfather, you are the most outstanding man I have ever met. Perhaps you could surpass my grandfather one day. I’m amazed at the fact that you don’t want to hide more. If you don’t leave this forest, it will be hard to find you. You should be proud of your hiding ability, even a god couldn’t find you! I reckon that our cat and mouse game would last long. You are not an impatient person, I think.”
Tang San smiled faintly:
“Miss Qian Ren Xue was wrong. I just want to make a bet with you.”
Qian Ren Xue rose the Sea God Trident in her hand:
“Well, this holy weapon is hefty!”
Her eyes seemed to provoke him like it was saying: ‘Well your only support is in my hand now, what do you have to negotiate with me?’
Tang San glimpsed at his black Sea God Trident, sighed inaudibly:
“Old friend, sorry for letting you suffer.”
“Yes, you could capture me now. I’m totally not your rival. You’re right. Mortal and God have a big gap, just like the gap between two edges of the abyss we couldn’t cross. But you can only have this body or my dead body, not my heart. Don’t you want me to submit to you?”
Qian Ren Xue astounded:
“Survival, I want it. Morals, I want it too. If I can’t have both, I will choose the Morals and leave Survival. I still recall your words. Why did you change so quick?”
A beam of disappointment appeared in her eyes.
Tang San calmly said:
“There’s death as light as a feather. There’s death as heavy as Mount Tai. If I have to die, I want my death to have good values. You can choose between capturing me, killing me or betting with me. If you win, I will obey you. If you lose, I want three days to leave. After three days, you can continue to chase after me. If you can use your force to take me, I will obey you.”
“What? If so, I’m a little bit interested. Tell me how do you want to make your bet?”
Of course, Qian Ren Xue understood that Tang San wasn’t a guy who would do things without a certain purpose. But his words touched her heart. If she took him now, she could keep his body, but not his heart. His words would be useless to other people, but to the Angelic God, it was a significant threat since he was the biggest flaw in her heart.
Tang San didn’t know why Qian Ren Xue acted like that. After one day of carefully analyzing, he came out with a firm belief that she would take his bet.
Tang San said:
“My game is easy. We don’t use weapon, just fight for half an hour, barehanded. During this time, if you can catch me, you win. If you can’t, I will have three days to leave. And, please give me back my Sea God Trident.”
“Half an hour? Tang San, are you that confident? Without a holy weapon, I’m still a god!”
Qian Ren Xue thought that Tang San would offer something he could take advantage. She didn’t think that he would give rules like that. She considered this type of fighting would benefit her more. Should I, a god, be afraid of a man like him?
In fact, Tang San foresaw Qian Ren Xue’s thought. He had taken advantage from her inertia of being undefeatable to make this bet. It wouldn’t be more than a life he could bet.
“You just need to answer me, whether to bet or not!”
Tang San’s voice was getting colder.
Qian Ren Xue was playing with the Sea God Trident in her hands:
“Maybe. But I can’t return this Sea God Trident to you. What if I can catch you three days later, but you won’t admit it? I don’t want your dead body. I will keep this Sea God Trident. If you submit to me, I will give you back.”
Tang San’s assumption went well. Everything was going on as he expected. However, Qian Ren Xue wasn’t an idiot. She was brilliant too. Vaguely, she could sense that Tang San had some tricks in this game. She wouldn’t give him back the trident that easy.
Looking at the Sea God Trident, Tang San determinedly said:
“Alright, one day I will take the Sea God Trident back from your hands.”
