Tang Wulin let out a long sigh. In truth, he really wanted to become Mu Ye’s disciple. No way he wouldn’t be enticed by body tempering methods and delicious food. Especially the food. If he could eat Mu Ye’s cooking on a daily basis, he’d be a happy young man, not to mention see his cultivation progress skyrocket. But betraying the Tang Sect for the sake of his belly was just something he couldn’t do.Ugh… If only the Tang Sect had a chef as amazing as Uncle Ye.
He raised his hand, wiping away his drool with a sleeve as he left the dining hall. When he returned to Zhen Hua’s office, Zhanggong Yan and Lin Yuhan were nowhere to be seen. Only Zhen Hua and Gu Yue were present.
“Uncle-master.” Tang Wulin gave a slight bow.
Zhen Hua cracked a smile. “How’d it go? What did you two talk about?”
Tang Wulin scratched his chin as his eyes darted back and forth the room. “Unfortunately I couldn’t meet Uncle Ye’s expectations. Then he left. I think he might be angry.”
Zhen Hua roared with laughter. “Don’t worry about him. That’s just the kind of guy he is. He’s still got the temper of a child at his age.” He rubbed off a single tear threatening to drip from his eye. “No need to worry, Wulin. I’ll go talk to him later. Anyway, I really have to thank you two kids today! Especially Gu Yue.” He turned to her. “You saved my life.”
Gu Yue quickly shook her head. “Please, Your Eminence, I did nothing worthy of praise. I just acted subconsciously.”
“Well, if it wasn’t for you subconsciously saving me, I’d either be dead of fatally injured. I still can’t believe you managed to react in time to that sudden attack.”
Gu Yue lowered her gaze, fidgeting with her fingers as her ears glowed red.
Chuckling, Zhen Hua angled his body to once more face Tang Wulin. “Your performance today was excellent. I didn’t think you would progress so much in just a few short months. You can already nurture life and subdue vicious spirits in your spirit refining. You’ve done well. Keep up the good work in building a solid foundation. Make sure you gain experience spirit refining all sorts of metal too. You’ll need all of that when you attempt soul refining in the future.”
“Yes, Uncle-master.” Tang Wulin nodded in earnest. He was currently at a blacksmithing bottleneck. Until he gained his fourth soul ring, he couldn’t truly be considered a sixth-rank blacksmith, despite his skills surpassing the overwhelming majority of those at the sixth rank. The final task he needed to advance was spirit refine an alloy, which was impossible until his cultivation advanced first. Furthermore, the soul power requirements were even higher if he wanted to soul refine.
“Alright then.” Zhen Hua clapped once. “I still have some matters to attend to, so you can spend your leisure time freely. Oh, right. Lin Yuhan had a message for you. She says she’ll definitely surpass you. Wulin, you better not slack off.”
“Understood!” And with that, Tang
