When it became clear Tang Wulin had no more to say, whether in surprise or focus, Gu Yue continued, words barely audible. “Have you heard of the Seven-colored Dragon?”
Tang Wulin shook his head. Dragons were the most powerful type of soul beast on the continent and there were countless species and offshoots. Even those with true draconic blood flowing in their veins were numerous.
Gu Yue smiled, sugary sweet. “I didn’t expect you to know anyway.”
“Well, tell me what it is then. I can’t sense any bit of draconic aura on you! Your martial soul doesn’t seem one bit like a dragon either,” Tang Wulin said.
“Of course. The Seven-colored Dragon doesn’t have scales and its looks shares few characteristics with most other dragons. The dragon side won’t manifest until my cultivation reaches a higher level, and I’m still far off from it. My Seven-colored Dragon is one of the strongest dragons you know! It’s far more powerful than one of those single-element dragons. It’s an elementalist, so I called my martial soul ‘Elementalist’ as well to hide its true nature. Look.” Gu Yue extended her hand and a black mass appeared in her palm. It was completely opaque, its shape everchanging, compressing and expanding like wisps of smoke.
Tang Wulin sucked in a deep breath the moment he laid eyes on it. “I-is that darkness?”
Gu Yue nodded. “It is. I’m able to control darkness, so I can use seven elements. Not six.”
“So it’s like that,” Tang Wulin murmured, realization dawning on him. “But why are you hiding the fact that you can use it?”
“It’s not like I really want to hide it. I just don’t want people to misunderstand me for an evil soul master. It’ll be really annoying if they did. My mom told me not to reveal it. Light and darkness conflicts anyway, so I can’t use both at the same time.”
“How does this relate to our soul fusion skill then?” Tang Wulin asked.
A faint smile appeared on Gu Yue’s lips. “The Seven-colored Dragon controls the elements and the Golden Dragon controls the body. Legend has it that the Divine Dragon was split into two, becoming the Golden Dragon and the Seven-colored Dragon. You see how they’re related now? That’s why our soul fusion skill is like that.
“It’s also normal that you can’t sense any dragon aura from me. None of my martial soul’s draconic characteristics will appear until I have seven soul rings. But I can still sense the Golden Dragon bloodline in you. It’s so pure, so I’m always drawn to you…”
Gu Yue blushed, averting her eyes. “A-anyway. That’s the way it is. Our Divine Dragon Transformation combines the power of the elements and blood essence to unleash unstoppable might. Our cultivation bases are still too low though. We can’t bring out the true power of the Divine Dragon Transformation yet, and that’s also why the aftereffects are so severe.”
Tang Wulin finally understood. Gu Yue hadn’t activated their soul fusion skill by chance. She
