In a sense, the Life Seed was considered to be a part of the lord of the plane. Moreover, his cultivation base was apparently advancing at a tremendous pace after he broke through to seven rings. Additionally, he had also acquired a piece of Metalwater Harmonizer from his grandteacher.
‘Yes! It seemed like my luck is truly getting better and my cultivation rate is accelerating too. I can even smoothly have a breakthrough in my cultivation of the Body Sect’s Innate Secret Technique. Do all these benefits come from being chosen by the plane?’
“You should be able to figure this out properly. This is also the reason why the Tang Sect chose to make you its Sect Master,” said Long Yeyue.
Tang Wulin spoke, “Your excellency, I—I agree to take on the responsibility.” He had considered for a moment and then decided to speak frankly.
Long Yeyue spoke, “It’s good that you’ve agreed. I’m telling you this not because I’m trying to inform you that the Tang Sect is using you, but I wish to let you know that we intend to do the same. From this day onward, you’re not only the leader of the Tang Sect but also the leader of Shrek Academy’s new generation. We will support you at all costs.”
“Huh?” Tang Wulin’s mind could not react to the situation in that instant as he looked at the old Title Douluo before himself.
Long Yeyue smiled. “A mighty movement is bound to need a mighty leader’s guidance. I’m already old. Could it be that you still count on an elderly woman over two hundred years old to do this? I may be able to bring some victories, but I can’t give hope for Shrek’s future. However, you can!”
Tang Wulin was feeling slightly bewildered. The sudden turn of events he went through at the Tang Sect today was a little too much for him.
“We are going to assist you as you advance. I’m telling you all this for another purpose, and that is so you’ll understand the path that you’re going to embark on next. You must certainly comply with the plane’s own requirements in order for you to perform smoothly. Otherwise, even if you are the plane’s chosen one, you could still possibly end up being abandoned in the end.”
“Yes,” answered Tang Wulin.
“Alright. It’s time to go back. Send Wu Zhangkong and the rest here.”
Although Tang Wulin still felt dizzy when he left the Tang Sect, it did not stop him from avoiding any kind of detection on the outside, and he distanced himself using the identity of a normal person before vanishing from the watchful eyes of his followers. Nevertheless, he was still feeling as if he was in a dreamlike state.
Within a few short hours, he had become the Tang Sect’s Sect Master and the new leader of Shrek Academy. Even though these two great organizations were far from what they had been in their glory days, he was only twenty-one years old!
In history, no one had ever taken both tasks upon themselves. Even the only two men capable of achieving Godhood, as in the Tang Sect’s founding father Tang San and the Spirit Pagoda’s founder, the Holy Ice Douluo Huo Yuhao, were incapable of doing this. On the other hand, he had managed to do so in a day.
How unbelievable was this? Yet, the reality was right before his eyes.
Then, he came to the Sea God Lake’s shelter and found Wu Zhangkong to inform him about the news that the Light Dark Douluo and inner court disciples were still alive.
Wu Zhangkong was just as surprised as he had been. However, after careful consideration, he did not send the over two hundred students with Tang Wulin to the Tang Sect, but he instead went with Tang Wuling alone.
“Elder Long. I don’t think that now is a suitable time for everyone to gather together,” said Wu Zhangkong straightforwardly to Long Yeyue after saluting her with respect.
Long Yeyue asked, “Why?”
Wu Zhangkong spoke, “Your earlier concerns were correct. Even though over two hundred students are willing to do anything for the academy after receiving its kindness, they are still too young and inexperienced. Thus, I think that they should elevate and train themselves one step further so they can become the backbone of the academy in the future. As a result, I think that the training proposed by Tang Wulin is necessary. They will only be considered mature after passing the tests on Demon Island and are qualified to know the secrets here.
Long Yeyue pondered before she spoke, “That makes sense as well. Then, we shall do as you’ve said. It’s good to separate into two sides to share the risk. In case there are any changes, at least there’s still hope.”
While Wu Zhangkong was discussing with Long Yeyue, Tang Wulin was chatting with his senior disciple brother Lan Muzi from the inner court.
Lan Muzi told him how the inner court students survived on that day.
The fellow elders from the Sea God’s Pavillion did all they could to withstand the arrival of the Godkiller-rank fixed soul ammunition so the students could stand a chance of surviving. Just like the outer court disciples, the group of Sea God’s Pavillion elders allowed them to live.
There was no shelter in the inner court, but there was a peculiar semi-planar teleportation array. It was launched just in time to teleport the group of people away. On the other hand, the Light Dark Douluo was in the peripheral area of the explosion, so she relied on her cultivation base to withstand the blast. Wounded, she fled into the distance.
The group sighed heavily when recalling everything that had happened all that time ago.
Long Yeyue and Wu Zhangkong walked out from the room. Her lips made a humming sound as she said something to the Holy Spirit Douluo who was giving directions to two recovery-type soul masters on one side of the great hall.
The Holy Spirit Douluo Yali arrived by her side.
The numerous inner court disciples hastily stood up and stood near her respectfully upon seeing Long Yeyue’s arrival.
Long Yeyue spoke with a deep voice, “I would like to announce that from now on, Shrek Academy shall be rebuilt. Wu Zhangkong shall be acting as the outer court dean and I’ll be acting as the inner court dean. Yali shall act as the Sea God’s Pavilion vice pavilion master. Tang Wulin, Wu Zhangkong, Lan Muzi, Tang Yinmeng and the remaining six people of the Shrek Seven Monsters shall become the elders of Sea God’s Pavilion.”
All at once, the crowd’s expressions became excited upon hearing Long Yeyue’s words. They clenched their fists tightly.
“Yes, Pavilion Master,” said the group in unison.
“No.” Long Yeyue waved her hand. “I’m still the vice pavilion master.
Henceforth, the position of the Sea God’s Pavilion Master shall be passed down to the leader of the Shrek Seven Monsters, Tang Wulin.”
Other than Tang Wulin, who was already aware of this, the rest were greatly startled. Even Wu Zhangkong had a shocked look in his eyes.
Tang Wulin as the Sea God’s Pavilion Master?
He was only twenty-one years old! Even if this was decided so the future would be more hopeful, it seemed like either Wu Zhangkong or Lan Muzi were more suitable than he judging by their resources and plethora of abilities.
At once, the group of inner court disciples was looking at Tang Wulin slightly differently. They were shocked, as well as rather confused. Even if Tang Wulin was the leader of the current generation’s Shrek Seven Monsters, he was still too young!
Nevertheless, Long Yeyue was so domineering, who had the audacity to refute her words?
Yali slowly walked to the front of Tang Wulin. There was a flash of light in her hand as she conjured a spear, shimmering with incandescent color. It was the Atlas Divine Spear left behind by the Atlas Douluo Yun Ming before the fusion of his essence, energy, spirit into his martial soul caused him to expire.
“Wulin, this was left behind by Yun Ming. You also wield a spear, so I’m giving it to you. I hope that you can follow his example of martyrdom so that Shrek can regain its glory once again.”
Immediately, Tang Wulin felt a mix of emotions in his heart upon seeing the spear in the Holy Spirit Douluo’s hand.
The Atlas Divine Spear emitted incandescent radiance all over while its body looked transparent. It was unlike the Golden Dragon Spear with sharp blades on both ends, as it had only one spearhead. However, the spearhead was especially long, almost one-third of the Atlas Divine Spear’s total length. There was a pulsating glow on the sharp spearhead. The word ‘Atlas’ was carved crudely on the shaft that connected the spearhead.
With his spiritual power perception, Tang Wulin could sense a gush of boundless and terrifying spear’s consciousness. No, more accurately, it should be called the conception of the spear’s essence.
Tang Wulin had just learned the fundamentals of his spear techniques the last time he saw the Atlas Divine Spear. He did not have profound feelings for it, but at this very moment, he had a completely different sensation despite just looking at the divine spear.
“Your excellency…” Tang Wulin’s voice sounded as if he was trembling.
