“You can go now. Continue working hard.”
The world before Tang Wulin melted away, fading into nothing.
His eyes shot open, surprised to find that the bathwater had cooled significantly. Still, it was refreshing for him.
Tang Wulin looked down to inspect his body but didn’t see any drastic transformations. Then, a visceral clawing need within the pits of his stomach had his mind elsewhere. I’m starving! How many days has it been?
Climbing out of the bathtub, he dried himself and quickly dressed, in a hurry to stave off his hunger with food.
But when he opened the washroom door, he nearly jumped with fright.
Instead of Wu Zhangkong, four people sat in the room, one of which was an unfamiliar white-haired woman.
He hadn’t seen her during his trip to Skysea City years ago.
“You’re finally awake!” Xie Xie leapt toward him.
“So I woke up in time?” Seeing them, his hopes rose. There should still be time before the exam, otherwise, his teammates wouldn’t be here.
Xie Xie grumbled, “What do you mean ‘in time’? We’re already late.”
“Huh?” Tang Wulin was so shocked, he even forgot his hunger.
“Let’s go.” Shen Yi stood up, giving Tang Wulin a meaningful look before walking out.
Xu Xiaoyan and Gu Yue also got up, the former beaming at him while the latter had an apathetic expression. Only, her eyes were far more expressive, concern lingering in their depths.
Tang Wulin nodded to them, then turned to Xie Xie. “Who is that?”
Xie Xie replied, “She’s a friend of Teacher Wu’s from Shrek. We’re already three hours late; Teacher Wu is helping us out at the academy right now, so we need to hurry over, otherwise, we might miss our chance.”
“I’m sorry. This is all my fault.” Tang Wulin slumped with shame and hung his head. His stinginess had started a domino-effect, from delaying the evolution of his bloodline to holding his teammates back and possibly missing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! And all this, just for the sake of saving money !
Xie Xie chuckled. “What’s the point in talking about it now? When you protected us at the forefront all those times, have we ever said thanks? How’s your body? How did your deep meditation go?”
Unable to tell Xie Xie about his seals, Tang Wulin could only smile bitterly and say, “I don’t know either, but I feel great.” He had realized that, apart from hunger, he was in good condition. Strength surged through his body, his soul power having grown. He estimated that it was around rank 27 or rank 28 now. Just like the first time, his soul power had not increased by much.
Though hunger still clouded his mind, he sensed that his body had strengthened by a third and, when considering his already immense physical power, it was a tremendous improvement.
What he truly looked forward to, however, was how his bloodline power had evolved, as well as the surprise Old Tang spoke of.
