Tang Wulin raised his hand and the golden ball landed into his palm. It hummed softly in his hand, nuzzling his palm affectionately.
Tang Wulin’s face twitched.If every piece of spirit refined metal is like this from now on, could I bear giving them away? It feels like it's my own child!
At that moment, Feng Wuyu spoke up. “Disciple! Why don’t we discuss some things?”
Tang Wulin looked up to see a sleazy smile on his teacher’s face. “Okay! As long we don’t talk about my titanium gold, I’m fine with anything. It’s bound to me through my blood essence, so giving it to you would be a waste.”
“You stinking brat!” Feng Wuyu smacked the back of Tang Wulin’s head, but eventually revealed a helpless smile.This kid really doesn’t care about how I feel!
Tang Wulin smirked. “Teacher, I’ve already delayed the competition long enough. I need to go down and rest. I’ll visit you in the evening.”
“Mn.” Feng Wuyu nodded, still unable to hide his smile.
Tang Wulin had bestowed life onto the titanium crystal. He had succeeded in spirit refining it into titanium gold. He was no longer a fifth-rank blacksmith in name alone.

Tang Wulin devoured them, then sat down cross-legged to meditate. Spirit refining the titanium crystal had drained him, but he would soon have to go up for the team battle. He had to take every moment he could to recover.
“The second match will be fought through mecha-designing,” Shen Yi announced. “Would the representatives please come up.”
The students of the second grade could hardly believe that they lost the first match, but they weren’t too concerned. He Xiaopeng had still put on a splendid performance. Tang Wulin was just a freak of nature. He Xiaopeng never had a chance.
Gu Yue looked at Tang Wulin for a moment, her eyes slightly narrowed, then took the stage. Gu Yue’s opponent took the stage as well. She was a tall and no less beautiful than Mu Xi. Unlike the girls of the first grade, she possessed a hint of maturity. She looked to be the same age as He Xiaopeng, about sixteen or seventeen, a young lady in the prime of her youth. In comparison, Gu Yue had average looks. Nothing about her really drew the eyes of others. The most charming thing about her was her cool te
