Qian Ren Xue’s face had stiffened. She didn’t even think that killing Tang San could be this tough. When they were in the Star Dou Forest, she hadn’t put her entire power into their bet. But right now, even though she had performed all of her God level’s power, even with the Angelic Saint Armament’s ability, still, she couldn’t kill Tang San.
Nevertheless, Qian Ren Xue felt that after the Sea God Trident had stopped her attack, its intelligence had vanished. The price of releasing the Sea God’s power by the Sea God’s Divine Sense to counter her attack was very high. Under such circumstances, he couldn’t counter her attack any longer.
Looking at the vastly immense sea in front of her eyes, Qian Ren Xue felt helpless. The God’s power had its limitations. Just like what Tang San had said, the Gods on the Douluo Continent were just humans, when they had reached a certain level, or spirit masters who had broken through the hundredth level, reaching the God stage, thus, turning into God’s, to be exact.
Even though Qian Ren Xue possessed the god level spirit power, when she was outside of her domain, there were things that she couldn’t control. When she had entered the vast sea, her divine senses would be resisted. The deeper that she dove, the more resistance that she met. She couldn’t be as flexible as when she was in the air. She understood that with the Sea God’s favor for Tang San, thus finding him here was like finding a way to heaven.
Qian Ren Xue took a deep breath, recalled the underground battle, she had had then sighed. What the Divine Sense of the Sea God said is right. I’ve become the Angelic God, but it doesn’t come from my step-by-step cultivation. Grandfather had helped me to streamline through the obstacles. I have inherited the entire Angelic God’s senses but not all of its power. If I did, I wouldn’t have wasted that much time in performing the abilities of the attacks and let Tang San escape.
Witnessing the boundless sea, Qian Ren Xue became calmer. She was like Tang San; as they were innate geniuses. Tang San had used many tricks to trigger her in order to escape during those days; this had affected her habitude. Right now, she had no chances to chase after Tang San anymore. Quite the contrary, she felt more tranquil. She understood that if she became embittered since she couldn’t kill Tang San, it would have affected her cultivation severely.
Her feelings then gradually cooled down. The Angelic God’s divine sense slowly twirled around Qian Ren Xue’s body. Under the sunlight, the Angelic Saint Armament was shining splendidly.
“Tang San, if you are on your trial path to receive the Sea God’s inheritance, I believe that, with your brilliant mind, you will soon become the Sea God. I used to hope that I could have eradicated you before you had succeeded. But still, I can’t overcome my flaws that you have given me, the deadly touching feelings. But now, it will not be like that anymore. I’m standing here, waiting until you become the Sea God to see what would happen afterwards. After you become the Sea God, we will fight again, properly. Let us see, if the Angelic God is more powerful or you, the Sea God! Tang San, I’m waiting for you!”
Qian Ren Xue’s gold light and voice were pouring into the sea. Although she couldn’t use her divine sense to find Tang San, who was under the protection of the Vast Sea Protective Barrier, she was using it to transmit her surging voice into the water. This could expand the range of her voice for thousands of li. If Tang San was still within this range, he would hear her voice.
Then, Qian Ren Xue sat down crossed-legged on the beach. There was no stimulation, worrying, or any other emotions in her eyes. She was quiet, just like when she saw Tang San for the first time after she had just become a God. She was even calmer than at that time. Not only could her mind be at peace, but her soul as well. She took the initiative in giving up pursuing Tang San, calming herself with her own words, and waited for Tang San on the shore. She had successfully erased the feelings of failure while raising her faith in her invincibility. Qian Ren Xue was able to bring a human spirit master’s thoughts to the God level; her angelic god power had now become thorough. If Tang San had faced Qian Ren Xue right now, he would have had no chances to survive. At the same time, it could be considered that Tang San had been the one who had helped Qian Ren Xue to enter the real god stage and fully become the Angelic God.
She decided to wait here for Tang San. She didn’t want to go to the battlefield and support the war. This clearly demonstrated how sophisticated she was now.
What she had to do now was to calm down, thoroughly ingest all the philosophies she had received after becoming a God and understand all of the god level’s capacities.
Under the sea, the Great White Shark Devil Spirits that were dashing forward suddenly stopped. The gold light slightly shook the water. But in this short moment, within thousands of li, all the creatures had a void feeling when a voice simultaneously echoed in their brains.
Naturally, the Shrek Seven Devils, who were in the Vast Sea Protective Barrier, could hear it clearly. Besides Tang San, the other six were paled. They were all looking at Tang San with doubts in their eyes.
Among them, Xiao Wu was the weakest one, but she was a one hundred thousand years spirit beast, who was now a Soul Doulou spirit master. They had a vast knowledge, but they never thought that there was somebody who could transmit their voice through the water. Moreover, that sudden shake even made their souls trembled. They understood how much struggles Tang San had been through now. And also, the reason why he had hurried to take them to the sea. What kind of supreme spirit master is the owner of this voice?
The Great White Shark Devil Spirits were carrying the Shrek Seven Devils for over ten li. With the defending ability of the Vast Sea Protective and the cover of the water, Tang San could confirm that even if Qian Ren Xue was formidable, it was impossible for her to track him down. He eased down his highly alert feeling. However, he still frowned upon seeing the hollow on the Sea God’s Trident.
Ma Hong Jun was about to ask something, but Dai Mu Bai had given him an implicating glance. None of them asked Tang San anything. They were brothers for many years. Of course, they understood that if Tang San had wanted to share anything with them, he would eventually tell them. Being anxious was useless anyhow.
Xiao Wu was standing right next to Tang San. She was a sensitive person, she could see his ashen right hand, clutching the Sea God’s Trident. The joint and bones could be seen under his pale skin showing that he had used his strength excessively. This voice had stimulated him.
Xiao Wu quietly held his large hand with her warm, small hand. Feeling her tender grip, Tang San turned to look at her, sighed and said, “I had a bad feeling that I would not be able to see you guys again these coming days. If I’m not lucky today, I’m afraid you couldn’t even see my dead body.”
Tang San finally spoke. Other people couldn’t help asking why. Dai Mu Bai knitted his brows, “Is it because of the owner of that voice? How could she do that? How could her voice travel through water? If so, is her power even more formidable than Bibi Dong’s? Maybe she is at level ninety-eight or ninety-nine? If she is stronger than Bibi Dong, it might be that she has one more spirit. But it’s impossible to have three spirits at the same time. If so, even with your current capacity and the Sea God Trident, you still wouldn’t be able to escape!”
Tang San beamed a forced smile. He realized that his comrades couldn’t think of the other possibilities. Although they were assuming Qian Ren Xue’s power, they didn’t dare to estimate her at such a holy level.
“You know that person. Last time, she had almost controlled all of the royal family of the Heaven Dou Empire. Her father was the late Pontiff, whom my father had beaten. Her grandfather is the Great Consecrator of the Spirit Hall, the peak Douluo Qian Dao Liu.”
Oscar said, “Are you talking about Qian Ren Xue? She could chase after you and turn you into this? Was she with her grandfather?”
If Qian Dao Liu had chased after Tang San, they could understand the circumstances.
Tang San quietly shook his head, “If that was Qian Dao Liu, I was about thirty percent certain to protect myself and seventy percent on running away, at least. But I had encountered Qian Ren Xue, who I couldn’t be sure of anything. This time, my escape was thanks to my reckless mind, all of the abilities and my fortune. Because of that Qian Ren Xue isn’t a human now!”
Ma Hong Jun couldn’t help but ask, “Not a human? So what is she? Is she a one hundred thousand years spirit beast too?”
Ma Hong Jun’s slow reaction didn’t mean that the others would be so too. Oscar dropped his jaw while Ning Rong Rong put her hand on her mouth to hold her scream. Xiao Wu, who was holding Tang San’s hand, she was now hugging his arm tightly. Her eye showed her extreme fear, just as if she was about to lose him.
Dai Mu Bai was the most mature among them. He still couldn’t help himself but scream.
“You, you want to say…”
Tang San nodded, “It’s true. She became a god, the six-winged Angelic God. If I’m right, the Angelic God’s inheritance was placed at the Elders Hall or the Douluo Hall of the Consecration Pavilion. Qian Ren Xue received the Angelic God’s inheritance with her grandfather’s help. We are trying our best through those years. Meanwhile, the Spirit Hall isn’t idle at all. They are the group that rules the spirit masters world, of course, they are able to nurture a spirit master ranked at the God level!”
Ma Hong Tuan dropped his jaw in awe and asked bewilderedly, “It is…It’s impossible! It’s just been several years. How could Qian Ren Xue be…”
Oscar said with his grimaced face, “Nothing is impossible. Just look at Little San. He has advanced from level sixty to over ninety now. The Spirit Hall is more profound than us. Why couldn’t they nourish a God level spirit master? However, it’d be better if this God could appear several months later.”
Ning Rong Rong said, “San-ge, how did you fight against Qian Ren Xue? Did you…”
Tang San laughed out loud, “You wanted to ask, how could I get out alive from a God’s pursuit, right? Honestly, I was fifty percent lucky this time. My efforts were less than half. I was lucky because when I faced Qian Ren Xue, she had just completed her trial for the God’s inheritance. She hadn’t understood her power thoroughly. Moreover, she had a flaw from the previous fight with me at the Heaven Dou City. During the battle, I had taken advantage of that to have a chance to escape from the Star Dou Forest. One more thing, the Sea God had helped me in the most critical time. If not, I couldn’t have been able to meet you guys again. A God level power is not something we could imagine. You know, Qian Ren Xue was able to use the Solar Divine Power to attack me. Only this could have made her strength boundless. I had created a good situation, but I had to run away recklessly. Although I survived, the Sea God’s Heart was gone.”
People who had listened to him became bewildered. They had some knowledge about the Gods when they accepted the Sea God’s challenges. However, they had never met a real God before or even imagine the power of a god.
Nevertheless, they understood Tang San’s capacity. Since they had left the Sea God Island, Tang San had relied on his powerful competence to defeat many strong opponents. From getting the approval of the Clear Sky School to stopping the furious wave at the front line, plus, he had smashed the wicked plans of the Spirit Empire’s Empress Bibi Dong. He had flawlessly proven his brilliant intelligence and mighty strength. Even though he was standing among a million of vigorous soldiers, he could still be equal to them. Without Tang San, the Heaven Dou Empire couldn’t have had such glorious victory. However, while he was talking about the God level Qian Ren Xue, his face showed his begrudgement and the feeling of being lucky. It showed how deadly and dangerous the situation that he had been through was. The God level spirit master’s existence had overturned their plan.
The atmosphere inside the Vast Sea Protective Barrier was suddenly silenced. Tang San looked at the change in his comrades’ faces; he understood that their beliefs were being badly shaken, just like when he had met Qian Ren Xue. Moreover, a god level spirit master’s existence had given them anxiety.
Tang San didn’t console them. He started to tell them the entire story.
“Everything started when I arrived at the Star Dou Forest and started searching for the spirit rings for my Clear Sky Hammer…”
Tang San began to tell them all the events that he had been through. He carefully described everything that had happened, even the smallest details when he had fought with the spirit beasts. Particularly, he gave them a detailed explanation for the fight with the Dark Demonic God Tiger. He even shared all that he had apprehended in his cultivation, the feelings toward the Great Sumeru technique and the “linked” spirit abilities. He didn’t hide anything from his comrades.
He started from when he had savaged the first spirit beast, gradually, he reached the time when he insanely ingested three of the spirit rings of the three Thousand Catties Ant Emperors at the same time.
“When I just finished the absorption, giving the Clear Sky Hammer new spirit rings, I hadn’t had a chance to test the new spirit rings. That was when I saw Qian Ren Xue. Right at that moment, I could feel that something was terribly wrong. Because since I had reached level ninety-five, my mental power was already increasing, but I couldn’t sense her existence. My Blue Silver Emperor could contact with the Blue Silver Grass, but I didn’t know how she had arrived there. I didn’t want to believe, but I could tell from the hints…’’
After the time he had killed the spirit beasts, came the climax of his story. His story attracted his comrades. All of them had their eyes on him now. Especially when he told them how he almost got killed by the Dark Demonic God Tiger’s tricks, and all of them mumbled in fear. Then, they felt their blood boiling when he told them how he defeated the Three Thousand Catties Ant Emperors at the same time. Their depression and anxiety were now gone along with the flow of his story.
Tang San told them in detail about his three confrontations with Qian Ren Xue. He explained the fighting process chronically together with the changes in his thoughts and what he had assumed about Qian Ren Xue’s emotional changes which determined his reaction and the importance of each move he had made. He had carefully used these words to explain to them. His narration wasn’t different from what actually had happened. However, he made everybody understand that the powers couldn’t rule everything, as intelligence was very crucial. Facing such formidable spirit masters, Tang San could still escape and be here with them now.
“…, If I had had the god level power like that, I’m one hundred percent sure that I could defeat Qian Ren Xue. It’s true that my spirit power is also increasing faster than hers. But my situation differs from hers also. If I’m not wrong, she has been through a trial just like the Sea God’s Nine Challenges. However, the facilitator of her trial was her grandfather, Qian Dao Liu. His support to Qian Ren Xue, of course, is different from what the Sea God Douluo Bo Saixi had for me. He had supported her with all of his capacity and helped her cross all of the challenges. But for us, we have to rely on our own capabilities to complete the trial.
“At the same time, when Qian Ren Xue had boosted her power to the peak, I was afraid that Qian Dao Liu had done something crucial. That’s why her inheritance process is not stable. She became a god, but not a perfect God. If not, she wouldn’t have had such big flaw. Of course, Qian Dao Liu had predicted this situation; but he also knew that if we didn’t have gods in this world. That he just needed to make her a god. Even though she isn’t the most formidable god, still, she is invincible. He had used everything he had to nurture Qian Ren Xue. And she didn’t fail him. She had broken through the last limit.”
Then, Tang San paused, looking at each person. From this moment, a powerful confidence aura that nothing could have been compared with it, arose. Even the Great White Shark Devil Spirits, which were on the outside of the Vast Sea Protective Barrier could feel it.
“But, we are not like that. Mu Bai, Little Ao, Rong Rong, Fatty, Zhu Zhu Qing and Xiao Wu. We are seven, but we are one, getting through the Sea God’s Challenge at the same time. We have proven our strength step by step, risking our lives to achieve what we now have. Yes, our spirit power is increasing rapidly, but you have to understand that the increase of the spirit power closely is closely related to the spirit. Perhaps, my Clear Sky Hammer and the Blue Silver Grass are not as powerful as the Six-winged Seraphim. But I have the twin spirits that even Bibi Dong couldn’t even be compared to. She has twin spirits too, but all two of them are of the same kind of animal. They are spiders. My spirits are different. They were from my parents. If I can cultivate them to their peak, I can be stronger than Bibi Dong. My foundations are stronger than Qian Ren Xue’s. Once I become the Sea God, I’m sure that I will be able to defeat her even if she can understand all of the Angelic God’s abilities thoroughly.”
His loud and dignified voice associated with his imposing aura made people feel the combination of his wisdom and aggressiveness between the Grandmaster and Tang Hao. Indeed, his father and teacher had imparted him with plenty of their most outstanding knowledge.
“We believe in you, Little San!”
Dai Mui Bai clenched his fists.
“You’re right, what about the god level spirit masters? We can become the god level spirit masters too! If only if you can become the Sea God, and even if the Angelic God could be stronger, so what? Moreover, although she could become stronger, she is lonely. But you are not like her, you have us. We will stay with you forever; together will we fight. Our plans won’t change, the Sea God Island is our sole target.”
Tang San determinedly nodded, then shifted the Sea God Trident to his left hand, putting his right hand in front of his comrades.
Seven arms firmly piled up transmitting the feeling of being united. Their eyes focused at the center. The effects that Qian Ren Xue had brought them had washed away. The obstacles that had just formed inside of them had vanished as well. This was what Tang San was aiming for. He was like Qian Ren Xue, who was sitting on the shore now, using his firm, unyielding faith to fill his mind with belief, solving all his innermost problems. However, whether it was Tang San or Qian Ren Xue, if they had wanted to solve the problems in their hearts thoroughly, the only way, was to eradicate their opponents.
Tang San consoled his comrades, then said, “We can’t go to the Sea God Island now. Before we go there, we have to visit one place. My Clear Sky Hammer still lacks the last spirit ring. I have saved this spot ever since I had left the Sea God Island.”
Oscar laughed cheerily, “You rascal, you almost got us killed and imprisoned by that gay Zhi Zhenzhu. If we don’t hunt him down this time, we are not the Shrek Seven Devils!”
Of course, everybody knew the target that Tang San had mentioned. It was the overlord of the vast sea, the most dangerous maritime spirit beast, the Deep Sea Demon Whale King.
Seeing Xiao Wu knitting her brow, Tang San hurriedly held her hand.
“Xiao Wu, are you okay? If you don’t want me to kill a one hundred thousand years spirit beasts, I can…”
Xiao Wu understood that Tang San had the wrong assumption, shaking her head, and said, “No, it’s not that I don’t want you to kill it. It’s just that this Deep Sea Demon Whale King makes me anxious. The last time, when you had faced it, I was there. It gave me a feeling that it was not just a regular one hundred thousand years spirit beast. You had to use the Golden Paragon Body to approach it and devoured it to boost your spirit power. However, right before I lost my consciousness, I felt two incredible things.”
“What? What was it that you felt?”
Tang San felt that his mind was shaken, asking hurriedly.
Xiao Wu said, “The first thing is was its power. That Deep Sea Demon Whale King was tremendous. I’ve never seen anything that had such a massive body and strength as it. I could confirm that even the combination of Da Ming and Er Ming are much far behind it. The power it had been accumulating from the vast sea is just like the ocean that you cannot see it’s depths. I couldn’t see its limit. You know how it feels when you used the Golden Paragon Body but still got hit. You know, the Golden Paragon Body is my ability. We had thought that its defense was to be completely invincible within three seconds. In fact, it is very limited. You were putting in all your strength to fight against him that time, of course, you couldn’t notice anything else. But I was forced in no to detach from your body, I could feel clearly the status of the Golden Paragon Body. You know, the Golden Paragon Body which you had poured in all your power, was on the verge of collapsing, although the Deep Sea Demon Whale King had just casually struck you once!
“It was just a nonchalant strike, but it could have had almost broken the Golden Paragon Body’s defense. There, you see how tremendous the whale was. It was careless at that time. It didn’t think that you had such an invincible defense. Then, you had a chance to use the Eight Spider Lances to devour a small amount of his energy. Even so, you hardly had an opportunity to survive. From your fight with Qian Ren Xue, we can see that you could have survived because of the Sea God’s divine sense. If not, you must have surely perished then. I want to tell you guys that you shouldn’t underestimate the Deep Sea Demon Whale King. It absolutely is not an ordinary one hundred thousand years spirit beast. Its cultivation base may have exceeded the limit of a one hundred thousand years spirit beast. This king of the ocean is not as easy to confront as we had expected. If we want to kill it, we have to prepare carefully.”
No one objected what Xiao Wu had said. They all knew that Xiao Wu used to be a one hundred thousand years spirit beast herself. She knew them well. The fact that she couldn’t see through the real power of the Deep Sea Demon Whale King had shown how formidable this spirit beast was.
Tang San nodded, “Xiao Wu, thanks for your reminder. If we come there without any preparations, we will probably taste bitter fruits. However, we must kill the Deep Sea Demon Whale King. Killing it is one of my Eighth Challenge’s mission. After I kill it, I could go to the Sea God Island to receive the Sea God’s inheritance. I will attack it alone. If anything occurs, you will assist me. The Deep Sea Demon Whale King can control the vast sea power, but my Sea God’s Light could create a certain constant restraint. Qian Ren Xue becoming a God has shortened our time. But we can’t rush; otherwise, it will cause major counter-effects. We must consider our safety first.”
Xiao Wu smiled listening to Tang San. She knew that Tang San had understood her grief. He could maintain his sound mind now, which had proved that his abilities were leaping. He didn’t panic due to Qian Ren Xue’s formidable power.
“Ge, we should approach the Deep Sea Demon Whale King first. One of his eyes is blind. If we don’t come near him or enter his domain, he will not notice us. Before we came here, I had asked Little Bai’s fellows to notice her. We shall wait for her. When she gets here, we can take action. She knows more about the Deep Sea Demon Whale King than we do. With her assistance, we could be confident about killing the Deep Sea Demon Whale King.
Tang San was so happy. He couldn’t help but hug Xiao Wu and landed a juicy smack on her forehead.
“Xiao Wu, you are my good wife. With Little Bai’s assistance, we could be more confident when attacking the Deep Sea Demon Whale King. At least we can spare a way back.”
Xiao Wu blushed. She didn’t dare to look at her comrades’ smiling eyes. She buried her head into Tang San’s embrace, lowered her voice and cooed.
“Ge, we are not married yet…”
Tang San laughed out loud and said, “Soon, you can’t escape!”
Ning Rong Rong smiled, “San-ge, I always thought that my Little Ao wasn’t romantic at all. But now, I know that he’s better than you. Just in one utterance and you got married to her already. You haven’t even proposed to her yet. Not romantic at all!
Tang San was ashamed looking down to see Xiao Wu in his embrace, then he looked at Ning Rong Rong, “My bad, my bad. Wait until we finish everything, I will propose to her properly!”
Oscar was fulfilled, he said, “Little San, your capacity is much stronger than mine, but you don’t know how to say sweet words. Let me teach you some, I’m sure you can use them for the rest of your life!”
Ning Rong Rong glared at him angrily.
“Good, so what you have told me are just sweet words? You smooth talker!”
“Rong Rong, those sweet words that I’ve told you came from the bottom of my heart. Ha ha. But wait, I suddenly found out that Little San’s actions are not bad, directly effective! Anyway, you only have me to choose. If there is someone who teases you, I will beat him up so hard that even his mother couldn’t recognize him!”
Ning Rong Rong begrudgingly looked at Oscar, who was swaggering now. She simply had no choice!
“Alright, alright. We are not too far from the shore right now. If Qian Ren Xue’s divine sense can find us, it would mean big trouble.”
Dai Mu Bai said with a low tone, frowning in grimace.
Tang San looked at Dai Mu Bai,“Dai-dage, I know what you are worrying about. But your concerns wouldn’t come true at least in the coming short time.”
“What? How come?”
Dai Mu Bai was looking at Tang San doubtfully.
Tang San said, “You think that such a supreme spirit master like Qian Ren Xue, once she joins the war, she will be invincible. Whether they are the Spirit Empire’s soldiers or the Heaven Dou Empire’s soldiers, they would not be able to hold her attack. She is a deadly danger for any nation. Is that what you think?”
Dai Mu Bai nodded. Other people might not care about the war, but he was the prince of the Star Lou Empire, how could he not care? Definitely, he didn’t want to witness the Spirit Empire destroying the Star Lou Empire. Seeing Tang San’s confidence, his worry was eased down a bit.
Tomato is back. For those of you who are seeking for a blue giant marine mammal, there’s still no whale, mua ha ha.
Anyway, I hope that you enjoy the chapter. I meant a whole chapter. *blink* . We have an editor now, I haven’t seen him. Yes, it’s HIM, not her as you had wished. Sorry guys!
There are 30 chapters more to go and I’m thinking about a new novel whose MC is a “nice” lady. Of course, she is not a hentai goddess, but she will become the Thunder God later. Her cultivation process is full of luck and extreme challenges. Ah, there are some chapters rated R. Haha. Tell me if you want to read this book, please comment below ^^.
Hope you survive Friday as you did before,
