Tong Yu raised a hand and prepared to strike at himself as he spoke.
"Wait!" Tang Wulin hurriedly yelled.
A wry smile appeared on Tong Yu's face. "There's no need to try and dissuade me; this is my final wish. I heard about what happened at the Star Luo Empire after your departure; you're a hero who's saved countless lives. If you think that my death will be a blemish on this academy, we can do this somewhere else."
Tang Wulin took a deep breath to calm himself down, then said, "Don't be in such a hurry to die. Your actions have shown me your repentance is genuine; I can't comment on something that happened decades ago, but if you were to die like this, I would feel very uncomfortable. I can't say that I forgive you, but redemption is possible for anyone. How about this? My parents were killed by Blood Demon; if you can kill him and avenge my parents, then the differences between us will be settled. If my grandmother were still alive, I'm sure she'd prefer this arrangement as well."
Tong Yu faltered slightly upon hearing this. "You want me to avenge your parents?"
Tang Wulin nodded in response. "That's right. Are you willing to do this?"
Tong Yu sighed, "You're her only living descendant; even my life belongs to you, so I'm certainly not going to refuse, but aren't you letting me off the hook too easily? I've constantly been living in pain and remorse for the past few decades; I..."
Tang Wulin interjected, "That's exactly why forcing you to live is the cruelest punishment for you. It's decided; you'll stay at Shrek Academy and aid us in our plight to destroy the Holy Spirit Cult. There's no way you'll be able to track down Blood Demon on your own, but you'll get your chance when we clash with the Holy Spirit Cult."
Tong Yu was silent for a moment before replying, "Alright, my life belongs to you, so you can take it anytime you want. After traveling for so long, I've become quite wary, so I'll do as you say."
Thus, Tong Yu was recruited into Shrek Academy by Tang Wulin, and just as he had promised, he did whatever Tang Wulin told him to do, and this included his participation in the clash against the Spirit Pagoda.
Compared to when he had first arrived at Shrek Academy, the exhaustion on his face had already vanished. He was genuinely concerned for Tang Wulin as Tang Wulin was his psychological pillar.
Why was it that Tang Wulin had been able to recover from such grievous injuries so quickly? Why was it that he dared to take an attack from a quasigod head-on? This wasn't just a reckless act of idiocy. Instead, it was because he had the protection of an even more exceptional healer than Yali: the tree of life!
