  1. Thank you for your work 🙂 So there’s 42 chapters left… 10.5 months before we finish the story? Seems so far away! I guess it gives the sequels time to get more chapters before I start them, so maybe it’s not too bad. (No, it is too bad lol I’m impatient to know how this story ends hehe)

    Tang San went straight to the point, intoning word by word:
    “Better—— Broken—— Jade—— Than—— Intact—— Tile——”
    FUCK YEA THERE ARE SOME THINGS A MAN CANNOT DO FOR THE ENEMY WHEN A PLEDGE HAS BEEN MADE (especially for his loved ones)

  4. I suppose the vast sea barrier should still work, since it’s an ability from a god’s relic. Running really is his only option here. Some of his attacks can probably delay her a bit, but he’s got no chance at winning.

  5. It always makes me sad when they make likable antagonists.

    Not the type that can stay on the sidelines and be witty, charming or fun while helping the MC along for their own self interests.
    I still like those ones.

    No, it’s the antagonists that have no other choice but be eventually vanquished that give me the feels.
    (THE FEELS ARE REAL)

    I mean, look at Qian Renxue.
    The baby of, what all evidence points to as rape, unloved by her mother, dead father, sent to be a double agent in a foreign country where not only does she have to act with full knowledge that she is to hinder and kill all the family figures around her, but she isn’t even allowed to act her own gender.

    Incredibly intelligent, though unappreciated, she is more or less unable to make a single real friend or even friendly relationship throughout her entire life up to this point aside from her grandfather who basically seems to believe that the way to show his grandfatherly affection is to train her to death, literally beating her up before sacrificing his own life to give her a power up.

    She has one single contemporary who she considers an equal worthy of her respect and admiration, which is just enough to skip straight past the idea of being friends to wanting him as her romantic interest even though they haven’t met or talked to each other more than a handful of times.

    This person has no chance of ever potentially returning her feelings as he’s already emotionally invested in someone else who he’s obviously not going to separate from.
    And this person just happens to want the destruction of everything her grandfather held dear on account of her father pushing his mother to suicide, her mother murdering his girlfriends mom and multiple murder attempts on his own life as well as the lives of everyone he cares about.

    But even with all her issues, she still retains a likable personality.

    Frankly, her background would make her protagonist material in most any other story.

    But in this one, on account of her standing opposite the Protagonist, she will have no choice but to fall as she has become the final boss, as it were.

    She’s too powerful to bend without being broken as the saying goes. She’s unable to just step aside and say, “Oh, well I guess you guys are in the right. I’ll go dismantle Spirit Empire, get rid of my mom and we can all go live happily ever after.”

    And even if the author went all twist-ending crazy and decided to go with that ending, she still doesn’t get the good ending because she can’t get the guy no matter which route she takes.

    I’m going on the assumption that Tang-san keeps to his one girl policy because it’s been pushed pretty heavily that he’s not going Harem-Lord (thank all that’s holy for that) in this novel, even if it could be argued that multiple wives are not uncommon in these types of tales.

    In any case, she’s doomed for a bad ending, which makes me sad.

    Sorry for the rant, it went on longer than I thought it would.
    Goes to show the author did a great job of making me feel for the characters, good and bad.
    (THE FEELS ARE REAL)

    And the Translators did a great job in getting all that across to me even through all the Asian nuance and Silliness that is English.

    Thank you for your hard work, I look forward to your chapters!

    • Completely agreed with all that. Tang San may have an unreconcilable hatred with the Spirit Empire, and for damn good reason imo, but she’s kind of … separate?… from them.

      Not to mention that she’s clearly been brainwashed against her mother, also to an unreasoning-level (as in she doesn’t even think about it – it may be completely illogical, but she can’t tell).

    • I agree with you, she is pitiable. She used to irk me, granted it was mainly because I don’t like the angelic clan, but after I thought about it, I found her a bit more likeable. People who act self righteous because they have holy powers really piss me off.

      Her granddad was planning on going after the clear sky school, even though they weren’t doing anything against them, and her dad did some really horrible things to her mother, his student, just to keep her for himself; those are fairly selfish, human things to do, being a follower of a holy god doesn’t change that.

      I realised she’s actually been a major victim of their schemes, and of the angelic clan itself; her dad schemes poisoned her relationship with her mother, and got himself killed, and her granddad lied to her for years, and didn’t keep her close after her dad’s death; her going undercover for years was for the clan itself.

      I used to be fairly annoyed that she got the 9 trials, because she didn’t seem nearly skilled enough for them, and potential seems a bit too loose of a reason, and thought that the god of angels was just being blindly biased towards his clan, or that she got the 9 trials because the other 3 gods had inheritors and the god of angels didn’t want to be left behind; but thinking about how she’s been a victim, that god is essentially redeeming the clan and making up for her suffering by raising her to inherit their godhood. That also makes me like the god of angels more, because before I thought they were self righteous too.

    • Actually, she committed the classic mistake of every powerless being ever. The moment she acquired strength, she chose to flex her muscle. And that rarely works out.

      Oppressing someone like Tang San (let’s remember she’s been oppressed in various ways her entire life) is quite possibly the most hypocritical thing she can do at this juncture – and also one of the most foolish. Just because she has 4 ranks on him, that gives her the right to demand his allegiance? Didn’t that gambit already fail once; when she had even more ranks over Tang San?

      She is indeed not self-righteous, and also a fairly respectable person, minus her inexperience in worldly matters.

      Sadly, despite the POWER she has been bestowed? She lacks the RESPONSIBILITY to use it properly.

      • Well if the story was written from her point of view, it would probably be along the lines of giving the one she loves one last chance to switch because she doesn’t want to see him hurt. She’s the one being magnanimous.

        • Indeed, that would probably be how she sees it, if we were to get her perspective. But think again – why must they fight in the first place? She’s a god now. CHOICE is the right of the powerful. She can choose the high road and decide to leave him alone. But she didn’t. Her mind is clouded with her new power.

          If this was written from her perspective, she would still lose this fight. Otherwise, how does she inexplicably win against this character, even though she already lost when the gap between them was much wider?

          • I’d say, its because she has been told her entire life that her path is the right one and now even her beloved grandfather has sacrificed his life to make (his) dream come true. For her, it would probably be utter betrayal of the person who was the most important to her for pretty much all her life if she were to give it all up now. And if neither of them gives up their goals then they can only fight each other.

            Although, to be honest, I’m guessing that in the end she will allow him to finish his trials so they can fight it out as gods.

            And yeah, I’m also feeling for her. Although I’m still a bit miffed that she fell for him in the first place (since it does get old that every single powerful female character without prior attraction to another powerful male character seems to fall for him), now that she has, I feel sorry for her. As I do for Hu Liena. I do hope that both of them manage to get over him.

      • This statement isn’t entirely correct. For one thing the difference between ranks once you’re over rank 95 really can’t be compared to the difference between a rank 60 something and a rank 79 something, it’s like how the difference between a rank 20 and a rank 30 can’t compare to the difference between a rank 50 and a rank 60. Second, the difference between a rank 99 and a rank 100 from my understanding is basically the same as rank 1 vs rank 99. They simply can’t be compared in the slightest because at that point the way they cultivate is on different levels. At rank 1 you are simply absorbing and us ing energy to increase your cultivation, while rank 95+ it requires moments of insight. So saying that just because the spirit rank gap is less then before tang San will definitely win is just ridiculous.

        • Earlier in the series, they said rank-ups are exponential. If every rank is twice as powerful as the rank before, then the difference between 69 and 79 is far greater percentage-wise than the difference between 96.5 and 100. The absolute power difference is irrelevant, it is the percentage that matters, as Tang San has shown over and over again.

    • I also feel for her. A lot. As I do with Hu Liena, actually. After all, both of them are acting quite understandably, consindering that they don’t want to betray the people who raised them and are closest to them.

      And both have fallen completely for Tang San (because of course they have *sigh*), which ist completely doomed. I do hope that they both make it out alive and manage to get over their doomed love. I do think that working together those two might be able to create something new and less toxic in place of Spirit Hall (and there will be a void that will have to be filled. Those two would be perfect to do that, but sadly, they most likely will end up broken and/or dead).

  11. Chapter 295 – The First Confrontation with the God Level Seraphim (Part 1)

    “You know I’ve become a god and you still want to fight with me?”
    “What about human? What about God? Don’t you know that there’s something you could never change in this world? Perhaps you haven’t heard this, I will tell you now.”

    “What about human? What about God? Don’t you know that there’s something you could never change in this world? Perhaps you haven’t heard this, I will tell you now.”

    “What is that?”
    Qian Ren Xue became grimaced.

    Tang San resolutely uttered each word:

    “Rather…be…shattered…jade…than…unbroken…pottery!”

    “Rather…be…shattered…jade…than…unbroken…pottery!”

    “You …”
    Qian Ren Xue frowned. Her smile disappeared. An unimaginable solemn aura emitted from her body, pushing toward Tang San. Tang San felt his legs were shaking a little bit, without the Sea God Trident’s assistance, he had to back off.

    A gold light as dim as a mist emerged from her body. In a flash, her body seemed to become the central of the whole world, blending with the ambiance of the sky and the earth. Tang San had a feeling that this Qian Ren Xue who was standing in front of him wasn’t real. Somehow, she has overwhelmed this space, and somehow it doesn’t felt like she is standing in front of me.

    Is it the power of a god? Feeling the immense pressure in the sky, on the ground, a feeling of being helpless rose in his mind. A merged aura had created such tension; he couldn’t imagine how tremendous the power of a real God was.

    All of Qian Ren Xue’s body emitted light. It looked like she just needed to wave her hand to conquer the whole surroundings. The Sea God Trident in Tang San’s hand transferred a warm heat to express its excitement and desire to confront the Angelic God. But Tang San felt melancholy. The Sea God Trident was a divine weapon; of course, it wasn’t afraid of any opponent. But I, the one who controls it, haven’t entered God level yet.

    “Tang San, do you really think that you can slip away from me today?”
    Qian Ren Xue scrutinized Tang San. Her cold eyes were filled with oppressive power that could pierce through his soul.

    Tang San shook his head:
    “You don’t understand my words, do you? Rather be shattered Jade than unbroken pottery. I don’t think that I could escape here alive. But if I have to die, I will never be a wimp who would surrender. My father has told me, a man should keep himself upright under any circumstances!”
    While saying, Tang San moved the Sea God Trident in his hand. Boom. From his body, the ground cracked violently and expanded up to ten tchi. His aura, which had mixed with his fighting spirit, could counter Qian Ren Xue’s immense pressure.

    Tang San’s determination, along with his dictatorial aura, had bewildered Qian Ren Xue. She unconsciously said:
    “Who asked you to be a wimp, didn’t you hear me clear? I just wanted us to cooperate; I don’t want you to be submissive.”

    Tang San coldly snapped back:
    “What is the difference between giving up my principles and being submissive? If you were me, would you leave your family, your country and everything to surrender? Survival, I want it. Morals, I want it too. If I can’t have both, I will choose Morals and leave Survival” (a quote of Meng Zi) [1]

    “You…”

    The flame of fury in Qian Ren Xue’s heart finally burst out. However, Tang San had taken the chance and attacked her first.

    “Watch my spear!”
    Gold light furiously emitted while he was shouting.

    Meng Zi’s quote had boosted his aura to the peak. Tang San’s left leg took one step forward; the Sea God Trident stabbed upward, accurately heading toward Qian Ren Xue’s chest. At the same time, the Sea God Trident’s mark on his forehead projected a gold light on the Sea God’s Heart. In a flash, gold light became thicker, the Sea God’s power had completely expanded. It looked like a simple move, but Tang San had poured all his power in it. His left leg stomped forward to support the force. The bursting power diffused within a second. The energy surge gathered on the Sea God Trident’s blade. A gold light lingered with the wind was about to explode. The space around the Sea God Trident was twisting like a snake. All of Tang San’s accumulated power was forced into this strike.

    This strike brought with it the peak aura of the owner. It wasn’t a spirit ability, but much stronger. While he was attacking, the Blue Silver Emperor was released, together with his divine weapon – the Sea God Trident.

    How powerful is a spirit master ranked god level? Tang San didn’t know. But from Qian Ren Xue’s aura, he was clear that this fight would be the most strenuous fight he had ever had. He was afraid that his luck wasn’t enough to escape. He had to put all effort to find a way to survive. That was why he had played all that he had right at the first time. He didn’t bother to hold anything back as he was prepared to risk his life.

    “Using humanity power to prevent a god, haven’t you waken up yet?”

    Qian Ren Xue stepped forward, facing the Sea God Trident. She didn’t have any intention to dodge. She rose her right hand, which was covered with gold light, directly snatching the Sea God Trident’s blade.

    The beautiful gold light burst out in a second of the impact. This made Qian Ren Xue’s right hand and the Sea God Trident blasted with gold light. A gold nimbus flowed in her palm making it translucent, looking like accumulated energy.
    The Sea God Trident’s gold light collided with Qian Ren Xue’s hand. It seemed like it had been melted and covered with a gold light layer. The Trident couldn’t burst. The crystal-like gold hand got through the gold light and snatched the main blade of the Sea God Trident just in one attempt.

    The Sea God Trident was like a furious wave washing the shore, but Qian Ren Xue’s hand was like a mighty mountain. Two opponents had collided, the wave had to stop. The massive weight of one hundred and eight thousand jin and Tang San spirit power’s energy were all stopped. From moving to being still, this whole process had just happened in less than a second. The Sea God Trident hadn’t pierced through half a cun, Qian Ren Xue had oppressed it. Her hand was holding it tightly.

    Qian Ren Xue also didn’t transfer any energy to the Sea God Trident. Tang San could even feel the full energy waves in his Sea God Trident. However, no matter how hard he had tried, he couldn’t move the divine weapon in his hand. Qian Ren Xue hadn’t even released her spirit yet.

    Disparity, this word appeared in Tang San’s head. However, his fighting spirit hadn’t been reduced. It would be strange if it were easy to face the opponent ranked god level.

    A blue-gold aureole rose from Tang San’s feet and expanded rapidly from his body to Qian Ren Xue. Tang San had compressed his Blue Silver Domain energy to the smallest scale. The immense blue-gold light had been turned into a massive blue-gold light column, plunging up high. The tremendous surge energy had boosted Tang San’s aura higher; it had increased the power he was pouring into the Sea God Trident by multiple times.

    However, Qian Ren Xue had projected a gold light flow to attack that blue-gold column. Right when Tang San’s power had been increasing, inside the blue light, a gold light glowed furiously. That gold light had formed a six-winged seraphim.

    “Dispel!”
    Qian Ren Xue’s voice was lucid but cold.

    The blue-gold column had instantly shifted into gold, then turned into numerous light spots. It was just like the starry night falling down on earth, condensed then vanished.

    Qian Ren Xue hadn’t released her spirit yet; she looked composed. The mark of the little angel on her forehead was glowing, directly faced the gold light of the Sea God Trident’s mark on Tang San’s forehead. But Qian Ren Xue’s light looked stronger.

    “My dispelling ability could dismiss any domain under God level. Tang San, I recognize your fast development. It surpassed my prediction. However, even when your spirit power has reached level ninety-nine, it’s still the human ability. How can you defeat me? It’s useless. This trident is a true divine weapon. What a pity its owner isn’t a god!”

    “Even if I’m not a god, the Sea God’s weapon isn’t something you could touch!”
    Tang San shouted angrily, his left hand suddenly grabbed the Sea God Trident.

    Until now, he had used the Sea God Trident with his right hand, so his left hand could be free to perform other abilities. This was the first time he used both hands to hold his divine weapon. The left arm spirit ability, Titan Firmament Cannon, broke out furiously. Concurrently, a dim gold light had emitted from his arm, pouring into the Sea God Trident.

    Qian Ren Xue could only feel the Sea God Trident’s power had instantly increased ten times. Although she was the Angelic God now, she couldn’t detain the Sea God Trident. The massive force had impacted her and blown her away. She let out an astonishing scream. At the same time, the gold light on the Sea God Trident, which her right hand was oppressing, burst out an extensive power, getting away from her hand. It didn’t hurt her, but it had created a void in front of her.

    Tang San wouldn’t let such chance go. He dashed forward together with the Sea God Trident, uniting his body and the spear. Simultaneously, a strange green light fearlessly merged with the Sea God Trident. Now, the gold trident turned into a mixed aureole of gold, blue and green.

    Just like furious thunder bursting out, a three-color lightning column was projected from the main blade of the Sea God Trident, striking violently toward Qian Ren Xue’s chest.

    Qian Ren Xue was so self-conceited that she hadn’t released her god level spirit. After she had become the six-winged Angelic God, she believed that she would never need to use all of her power. She had never thought that Tang San could hurt her. However, Tang San, who was under her absolute restraint, could still counter-attack her sharply. She was holding the Sea God Trident, but it boldly broke her clutch.

    Qian Ren Xue’s body was covered with the three-color lightning. She couldn’t help but jerk back in mid-air. The paralyzing feeling was spreading over her body and stunning her.
    But god level is god level. The strike Tang San had made was the total combined force from the Sea God Trident with the Thunderstorm Fading from Heaven ability. If it struck a Title Douluo, he would have turned into ash now. The Gravity Control had boosted the weight of one hundred and eight thousand jin, but it could just reluctantly push Qian Ren Xue away. It couldn’t pierce through her.

    Thanks to his opponent rash action, Tang San immediately took the chance. He understood that facing a god level spirit master like Qian Ren Xue, the chance just flashed off and on. He couldn’t strike her constantly with his abilities. That was why he should take advantage of the short time his opponent was controlled to make his most powerful attack.

    His body spun half a circle in mid-air. The Sea God’s Light fearlessly shone on the Sea God Trident, brightening this holy weapon with gold light. The tremendous gold power accumulated at one point right when it was released. It looked like a shadow, chasing Qian Ren Xue. This was the third strike of the Golden Thirteen Halberds, One Journey without Return.

    While he was preparing for this strike, the Eight Spider Lances on his back had projected eight gold light columns, aiming for Qian Ren Xue.

    Facing the god level opponent, Tang San also used the god level attack that he was capable of using. Under the formidable pressure Qian Ren Xue had created, his conditions had been boosted to a never-before-seen peak.
    Qian Ren Xue’s body was pushed backward into the air. She was scared and couldn’t think of how Tang San could make that strike. The electrical shock of the Thunderstorm Fading from Heaven didn’t stun her. But the god power, which was suddenly urged inside the Sea God Trident, had helped the Trident burst out its power. This strike hadn’t been limited; it had approached the power of the god level.

    Tang San had quickly sent his pursuit, but the God level’s reaction wasn’t slower. While her body was still hovering in the air, the angel mark on her forehead glowed. Boom. Six massive wings appeared on her back. Then, the gold wings furiously washed away the lightning on her body. A long sword appeared in her hand, looked like it was made from dazzling gold light.

    The moment the sword had appeared in her hand was also the time when the Sea God Trident had approached her.

    BANG… Qian Ren Xue’s body was being pushed back again. Her sword collided with the Sea God Trident’s blade. Since Tang San had mastered the first three strikes of the Golden Thirteen Halberds, she was the first one who could withstand that One Journey without Return. Although her sword could hold the strike on time, she was rushing. Moreover, this One Journey without Return was so compelling, some gold beams from the side swooshed and cut her left arm. Gold blood was bleeding from the cuts. Only this divine weapon could hurt her.

    A God faced a mortal, and the one who got hurt was the god. Tang San could be proud from now.

    Nevertheless, Tang San was still solemn. The devouring light from the Eight Spiders Lances wasn’t effective. Qian Ren Xue just needed to use her wings to protect her body. Eight spots on her wings sparked, and the eight gold lights from the Eight Spider Lances were bounced back, then vanished in mid-air.
    In a short while, the Sea God Trident, with its massive weight of one hundred and eight thousand jin, had performed the One Journey without Return, which could blow Qian Ren Xue away for thousand meters. This strike is too tremendous! Tang San’s capacity had been advanced in the Star Dou Forest. He could execute A Journey without Return with its full power. But then, he had no strength remained. Seeing Qian Ren Xue was blowing far away, Tang San didn’t hesitate to plunge deeper into the Star Dou Forest.

  12. Chapter 295 – The First Confrontation with the God Level Seraphim (Part 2)

    The Sea God’s power was like torrential waves transmitted to her body from the wounds on her arm. This pain had cleared her mind. She understood that she had always underestimated this man. The man who could make miracles. Seeing Tang San running away into the Star Dou Forest, she couldn’t do anything. Under the absolute restraint of the Sea God Trident, she couldn’t release her true god-level power. She couldn’t help but be pushed backward. The struggling took five seconds. Tang San could oppress the Angelic God for five seconds. No one, even Qian Ren Xue could believe it.

    Eventually, the Sea God Trident got back to its original weight of one hundred and eight thousand jin. The bright gold light ceased, and the trident was black again. Qian Ren Xue finally stopped in mid-air. The Angel Sword in her hand flashed, she reached her left hand to hold the Sea God Trident. The Trident was heavy, but she was a god level spirit master, she could hold it.

    “Well done…Well done, Tang San! But now you don’t have your holy weapon anymore, what will you use to fight against me?”
    Qian Ren Xue looked at the wounds on her left arm. The gold blood had stopped bleeding. After a while, she washed away the Sea God’s power intruded her body. Just like what she had said before, the one who used the Sea God Trident wasn’t a god.

    Qian Ren Xue didn’t hurry to chase after Tang San. She carefully studied the strange massive black trident in her hand. She hadn’t been so sure she could catch this trident. She was a god now, but god’s power still had limits. When Tang San first heard about the existence of God, he understood that God was just a supreme spirit master who had entered another stage of cultivation. They couldn’t hold the whole world in their hands. If it weren’t true, with the god’s existence, Douluo Continent wouldn’t be like today. One million jin was the limit of the god’s power. The peak Douluo Bo Saixi had found it very tough to hold the one hundred eight thousand jin Sea God Trident, what if it was ten times heavier?
    Qian Ren Xue looked the Sea God Trident in her hand, suddenly burst out laughing:

    “Tang San, you are God’s favorite spirit master. If you lose this holy weapon, will God continue to favor you? Without it, how could you receive the god’s inheritance?”

    Being a god, Qian Ren Xue understood that the Sea God Trident was as precious as her Angelic Armament six spirit bones. They were all essential items to become a god. Without the Trident, Tang San couldn’t inherit the Sea God Title. Although she had been pushed backward, she knew that it was because of her carelessness. Tang San’s capacity was far from being able to threaten her. The Sea God Trident is in my hands now; Tang San can’t be a god or threaten me anymore. Not to mention he couldn’t escape, what if he could run away?

    Qian Ren Xue wasn’t always a nice person. Talking with Tang San today to convince him without using force wasn’t because she adored him. Qian Ren Xue hadn’t had a chance to taste love since she experienced the drama between her parents. This led to her utterly disappointment toward love. She didn’t want to hurt Tang San in hope to make him compromise. When she struggled to become a god, his figure had stood by her and helped her out. If she killed Tang San immediately, she could never make up the flaw in her heart. Later when she met a god level opponent, she would be in big trouble.

    But if Tang San decided to submit to her, her affections for him would decrease dramatically. His position in her heart would change. Eventually, she could erase his image in her heart, that was how she could make up the flaw there. Moreover, she only needed Tang San to stay and be faithful to her. If so, that flaw could disappear without any reconcilement needed. Qian Ren Xue had put her efforts to persuade him. She even used authority as a bait to coax him.

    Pitifully, Tang San’s personality was tougher than what she had imagined. Especially after he had cited the quote that he learned from his previous life, his image was carved deeper into Qian Ren Xue’s heart.

    “Rather be shattered jade than unbroken pottery. Well done, Tang San. You truly worth being my man!”
    Qian Ren Xue looked at the direction that Tang San just ran away. She beamed a complicated smile, recalling his figure when he deliberately roared. It had stirred her up.

    Six gold wings expanded on her back. Flash. Qian Ren Xue’s body was like a gold shooting meteor flying over to Star Dou Forest. Tang San couldn’t use his mental power to sense her didn’t mean that she couldn’t either. Her flying speed was unimaginable; she could fly over a thousand meters just in a second.

    While flying, Qian Ren Xue muttered his words:

    “Survival, I want it. Morals, I want it too. If I can’t have both, I will choose the Morals and leave Survival. Tang San, Tang San ah! Are you truly my destined nemesis? Ohhh…”

    Qian Ren Xue was focused on finding Tang San when she suddenly realized that, it wasn’t Tang San standing in front of her, but a big bush of Blue Silver Grass.

    Holding the Sea God Trident and the Angel Sword in her hands, she tenderly descended in front of the human-shaped Blue Silver Grass. Qian Ren Xue had a strange feeling; she didn’t know whether she should cry or laugh. I’m the Angelic God, Tang San had already hurt me. Now he could even fool me. This proved that he could run away under my mental power sensing. Actually, this was beyond her calculation. However, this teasing had excited her, just like a cat was chasing a mouse.

    Mortal and God. The difference between them was like the distance between two edges of the canyon. Even though Tang San had some parts advanced to God level, and he had almost finished the Sea God’s Eighth Challenge, still, he was a human. However, he had his unique feature which could help him escape under two circumstances, which was why he could escape Qian Ren Xue’s mental power. Of course, it was Qian Ren Xue’s inattention. If she had determined to find him, he couldn’t stand a chance in tricking her.

    Those two circumstances were in the forest or the sea, distinctively.

    Tang San was about to inherit the Sea God Title, he had the ability to survive where mortals couldn’t. That was in the ocean. With the Sea God’s aura, the immense ocean would protect him. It would be challenging for any spirit masters who wanted to kill him in such terrains.

    In the jungle, Tang San had the Blue Silver Doman, which could control all blue silver grass. Indeed, the Blue Silver grass was too fragile; anyone could break it. The comparison between the Blue Silver Grass and the Angelic God was like sky and earth, a grain of sand and the whole desert. But you should know there’s a saying said that many little makes a mickle. Do you know how many pieces of Blue Silver Grass are there in the Star Dou Forest?

    When his life was endangered, Tang San had dashed into the forest and immediately released his Blue Silver Domain. This time, he had expanded the domain to the limit. He had instantly urged the abilities of the Blue Silver Domain, including the Boundless Nature and the All Rivers Run into the Sea to ingest the energy from the Blue Silver Grass and recover his power. At the same time, he blended himself with the Blue Silver Grass. The method he had used to disguise was to make his aura look like a Blue Silver Grass and simultaneously enhance the Blue Silver Grass’s aura. He took advantage from that contrast to get out of Qian Ren Xue’s mental power sensing. At the same time, he created a dummy that had his aura and ran away to the opposite direction using the flying ability of the Blue Silver Emperor’s right leg spirit bone.

    The trick Tang San had used to run away was simple but prudent. Besides the ability of the Blue Silver Emperor’s right leg spirit bone, he also used the Blue Silver Domain to restrain his body, and used the hiding ability of the Vast Sea Protective Barrier to hide his aura, then ran away.

    However, the Blue Silver Emperor’s right leg spirit bone alone wouldn’t be enough to cover the Blue Silver Grass and his aura completely. However, with this flawless protection, even if Qian Ren Xue wanted to catch him in this Star Dou Forest, it would be impossible.

    The key factor was Qian Ren Xue was too careless. Even though Tang San had hurt her with a full-force strike, still she didn’t consider him as an opponent whom she should pay more attention.

    However, Qian Ren Xue’s carelessness disappeared quickly. Standing in front of the human-shaped Blue Silver Grass, Qian Ren Xue pierced the Sea God Trident into the ground then put her hand on her forehead. Suddenly, a gold aureole diffused from her body. Right now, she didn’t only use the mental power to sense, she was using the divine sense. She had expanded it all over the Star Dou Forest to search for Tang San.

    The gold light could expand over one thousand meters just in a second. The Angelic God’s mental power had covered the entire Star Dou Forest in just a flash.

    “How could it be?”
    After she had searched the entire Star Dou Forest, Qian Ren Xue couldn’t hold her bewilderment but ask. She had used the divine sense to search but still couldn’t find him.

    She was certain that Tang San was still in the Star Dou Forest. He couldn’t leave the forest in such short time. But her divine sense couldn’t locate him, which meant he was using some god level ability to hide himself.

    Qian Ren Xue’s expression became solemn for the first time after she had become the Angelic God. This was the first time she had taken action. She was supposed to come to the Auspicious Hill Mountain Pass to take over the Spirit Empire’s force. When passing by the Star Dou Forest, she recognized a tremendous surge power, then she urged her divine sense and caught the scene when Tang San was trying to kill three Thousand Catties Ant Emperors. Moreover, he had absorbed three spirit rings at the same time. Seeing Tang San there, of course, she wouldn’t let him go. But she didn’t expect that they would fight each other, and he had hurt her, fooled her then ran away. However, she got a big catch with the Sea God Trident she held in her hand. She had tried to put angelic power into the spear, but she couldn’t do that. It meant, she couldn’t use it nor break it. This is a true holy weapon, just like my Angel Sword.

    Right now, she was using the divine sense to search for him. She started to pay more attention. This is the first fight after I have become a god. If I let Tang San run away, it means I have lost this fight! I don’t want it!

    Anyhow, aren’t you in the Star Dou Forest now? He had definitely used the Sea God’s treasure and the Blue Silver Domain to hide from my sensing. Alright, I will waste my energy and play with you. I want to see if you could leave this place. When you leave the Star Dou Forest, without the Blue Silver Grass’ protection, we will see how you can escape my divine sense!

    Then, Qian Ren Xue stopped and retrieved her six wings. The Angel Sword in her hand turned into a gold light beam and disappeared into her body. She took off the ragged clothes and changed into another one. Then, she sat crossed legs in front of the Blue Silver Grass dummy.

    She didn’t sit on the ground but floating in mid-air around two tchi from the ground. The dim gold light seemed to sometimes flash on her skin. Her body was like it was glowing. The angel mark on her forehead continuously flashed. After each three breaths, there was a gold nimbus diffused from her body, sensing the Star Dou Forest entirely.

    From Qian Ren Xue’s movement, one could see how tremendous a spirit master ranked god level is. Her mental power had constantly been releasing without any pause in the immense forest. But it seemed she didn’t consume much power. Even if Tang San had the Blue Silver Domain, it was still impossible for him to do that. Once Tang San appeared in her sensing area, Qian Ren Xue determined not to give him an opportunity to escape.

    When Qian Ren Xue had released her first divine sense wave, Tang San recognized it too. When the strange gold wave was about to travel through the Vast Sea Protective Barrier, Tang San hurried to lay still on the ground, quietly waiting for the divine sense wave to cross over. He was in the Blue Silver Domain, of course, he knew what Qian Ren Xue wanted to do. He used to perform this ability too, but he could feel clearly that Qian Ren Xue’s divine sense was much stronger than his Blue Silver Domain.

    He was lucky that he was able to maintain the Blue Silver Domain along with the Vast Sea Protective Barrier to hide himself. That was how he had fooled an Angelic God’s divine sense. Tang San could figure it out meant Qian Ren Xue could too. However, there was a gap between two sensing waves. Tang San had taken this time to reach the edge of the Star Dou Forest. But when he got there, he found out that he couldn’t leave. His mental power could sense the divine sensing waves expanded one li out of the Star Dou Forest before they faded out. He understood that the moment he took one step out of the Star Dou Forest, he would be discovered immediately. He didn’t think that his pace could compare with Qian Ren Xue’s anyway.

  15. Chapter 296 – The Tenth Spirit Ring – A God Level Spirit Ring (Part 1)

    Under the sensing of Qian Ren Xue’s divine sense, Tang San had to stay within the edge of the Star Dou Forest. He laid flat on the ground, knitting his brows and musing.

    With his current capacity, maintaining the Blue Silver Domain and the Vast Sea Protective Barrier for a long time wasn’t a big deal. In a regular situation, Tang San would compete with Qian Ren Xue regarding consuming energy to see who was more patient. But now, he understood that if this kept going on, he would be the one who was going to be impatient.

    Qian Ren Xue could put aside the war on the front line now, but could I? My parents and teacher are there. If something happens, I will live in regret for the rest of my life.

    Tang San was taking risks leaving the Heaven Dou Empire’s base along with the Shrek Seven Devils. The Spirit Empire’s force now was reinforced with six Supreme Title Douluos ranked over level ninety-five and five to six more Title Doulous. They were tough guys staying inside the Auspicious Hill Mountain Pass. Once Bibi Dong had recovered, the main force of the Heaven Dou Empire would be in deadly danger. Under such circumstances, Tang San had only one option: he had to become the Sea God quickly and return to the front line to control the situation in order to win this war.

    On the other hand, Qian Ren Xue didn’t have that worry. Even if they were to continue to lurk like this, she wouldn’t bother. She didn’t feel her divine sense was getting weaker, quite in in contrast, it was getting stronger as time passed by. She guessed it was because she had just entered the god level and she hadn’t understood all the god level’s abilities yet. If she did, Tang San couldn’t stand a chance.

    With the current situation, Tang San didn’t have the capacity to fight against her. His Sea God Trident was in her hands now. He knew that he couldn’t simply run away, he had to take his Sea God Trident back if he wanted to visit the Sea God Island again for his inheritance. However, taking an item from a god level spirit master would be even more challenging than the Sea God’s Seven Challenges. But the difficult thing right now was that he didn’t have one year of time to waste; it should be as short as possible.

    I should keep calm. In such situation, I have to stay alerted. Facing this danger, Tang San calmly laid down inside the Blue Silver Grass bush, telling himself to be attentive. It had been long since he had been in such bad circumstances, being entirely surrounded like this. The strenuous challenge stimulated Tang San’s fighting spirit. He believed that a God couldn’t be almighty. His opponent was formidable, but he would have chances to find her flaws.

    His mind gradually became placid. Tang San started to sort up his thoughts. Qian Ren Xue decided to show herself had startled me, but it was not because she is a god now. However, why she didn’t take the chance when I was absorbing the spirit rings to kill me or at least restrain me? She is a god level spirit master; I wouldn’t have a chance to protest against her. But she didn’t do that. She even showed that she wanted to help me. Was it because she is too confident with her god level capacity? No, it wouldn’t be that simple. I am still the Spirit Hall’s enemy, and she is the late Supreme Pontiff’s daughter. My father killed her father. She should have killed me! Do the people at the Spirit Hall are those whose desires need to be fulfilled at any costs?

    Besides, Qian Ren Xue suddenly reached god level. It is unbelievable! Last time I met her, she was over level seventy. She could break through god level in just six years. I can say her luck and experience are even more than mine. So, there is only one possibility. Just like me going to the Sea God Island after I left the Heaven Dou City, she had started her Angelic God’s inheritance process. Then I guess the location of the Angelic God is in the Spirit Hall.

    Grandmaster has mentioned the Angel Armament; maybe it is a holy weapon just like my Sea God Trident.
    Through his conversation with Qian Ren Xue, Tang San found something else. It was the intense relationship between Qian Ren Xue and Bibi Dong. She was the lineal descendant of the six-winged seraphim, and she should be the next Supreme Pontiff after her father died, not Bibi Dong! The Great Consecrator of the Spirit Hall, Qian Dao Liu, with his tremendous capacity, it wouldn’t be hard for him to make her the Supreme Pontiff. But why he didn’t do that? There should be something between Qian Ren Xue and Bibi Dong. Now, Qian Ren Xue had become the Angelic God; she would fight to reclaim the power over the Spirit Empire.

    No matter what, Tang San couldn’t get it clear why Qian Ren Xue didn’t hate him. He had broken her disguise in Heaven Dou Royal Family. What does she really want to do?

    These secrets had blurred Tang San’s mind. But it wasn’t too long. The most important thing he had to do now was to escape this place and retrieve his Sea God Trident.

    Tang San didn’t regret using the One Journey without Return to attack Qian Ren Xue. If he didn’t do that, he wouldn’t have the chance to run away. He had seventeen spirit rings right now, but the spirit abilities they had granted him wasn’t enough to prevent Qian Ren Xue; unless he could be a God and his spirit abilities could have the god’s aura. If not, they would be useless when confronting her.

    The massive pressure was decreasing. Tang San’s thought started to flick quickly. He had to leave this place as soon as possible, gather with his comrades and inherit the Sea God title. The fact that Qian Ren Xue was a God now had urged his desire toward the god’s inheritance. Not only the power but also the ability to protect his family and friends. He should have the ability to oppress the Spirit Empire.
    One day had gone rapidly!

    Qian Ren Xue was still releasing waves of divine sense. She realized that this discontinued sensing had given her something good. She had just entered the god stage; this unceasing divine sense had boosted her profound understanding of the god’s power. The feeling of being able to hold everything in her hands was increasing.

    Gold light blasted. She opened her eyes and smiled mischievously. She talked to herself:
    “Now what, you can’t hold it anymore? Let see where you can hide!”

    Her body disappeared together with the Sea God Trident in the illusory light shadow.

    Where her divine sense could travel, she could get there too. Qian Ren Xue wasn’t flying. It looked like she had been using Blink consistently. Her pace was several times faster than her divine sense’s speed. In her thought, there were no such things as obstacles. Today, her divine sense was covering the entire Star Dou Forest, all creatures who weren’t God couldn’t help but shiver. They even didn’t dare to breathe hard. No one dared to disturb her.

    She saw her target. Somehow it was strange because Tang San was standing still waiting for her there. It seemed he could predict it. He didn’t attempt to hide, smiling with all his gentle and deliberate manners.

    Gold light flashed again. Qian Ren Xue stopped at around ten tchi in front of Tang San. She peered at him, knitting her elegant brows.
    “Could you tell me what brings you confidence? Looks like you are not as panic-stricken as a stray dog.”

    “Do you think I’m a stray dog?” Tang San barked.

    Qian Ren Xue smiled:
    “Of course not. Besides my grandfather, you are the most outstanding man I have ever met. Perhaps you could surpass my grandfather one day. I’m amazed at the fact that you don’t want to hide more. If you don’t leave this forest, it will be hard to find you. You should be proud of your hiding ability, even a god couldn’t find you! I reckon that our cat and mouse game would last long. You are not an impatient person, I think.”

    Tang San smiled faintly:
    “Miss Qian Ren Xue was wrong. I just want to make a bet with you.”

    Qian Ren Xue rose the Sea God Trident in her hand:
    “Well, this holy weapon is hefty!”

    Her eyes seemed to provoke him like it was saying: ‘Well your only support is in my hand now, what do you have to negotiate with me?’

    Tang San glimpsed at his black Sea God Trident, sighed inaudibly:
    “Old friend, sorry for letting you suffer.”
    “Yes, you could capture me now. I’m totally not your rival. You’re right. Mortal and God have a big gap, just like the gap between two edges of the abyss we couldn’t cross. But you can only have this body or my dead body, not my heart. Don’t you want me to submit to you?”

    Qian Ren Xue astounded:

    “Survival, I want it. Morals, I want it too. If I can’t have both, I will choose the Morals and leave Survival. I still recall your words. Why did you change so quick?”

    A beam of disappointment appeared in her eyes.

    Tang San calmly said:

    “There’s death as light as a feather. There’s death as heavy as Mount Tai. If I have to die, I want my death to have good values. You can choose between capturing me, killing me or betting with me. If you win, I will obey you. If you lose, I want three days to leave. After three days, you can continue to chase after me. If you can use your force to take me, I will obey you.”

    “What? If so, I’m a little bit interested. Tell me how do you want to make your bet?”
    Of course, Qian Ren Xue understood that Tang San wasn’t a guy who would do things without a certain purpose. But his words touched her heart. If she took him now, she could keep his body, but not his heart. His words would be useless to other people, but to the Angelic God, it was a significant threat since he was the biggest flaw in her heart.

    Tang San didn’t know why Qian Ren Xue acted like that. After one day of carefully analyzing, he came out with a firm belief that she would take his bet.

    Tang San said:
    “My game is easy. We don’t use weapon, just fight for half an hour, barehanded. During this time, if you can catch me, you win. If you can’t, I will have three days to leave. And, please give me back my Sea God Trident.”

    “Half an hour? Tang San, are you that confident? Without a holy weapon, I’m still a god!”
    Qian Ren Xue thought that Tang San would offer something he could take advantage. She didn’t think that he would give rules like that. She considered this type of fighting would benefit her more. Should I, a god, be afraid of a man like him?

    In fact, Tang San foresaw Qian Ren Xue’s thought. He had taken advantage from her inertia of being undefeatable to make this bet. It wouldn’t be more than a life he could bet.

    “You just need to answer me, whether to bet or not!”

    Tang San’s voice was getting colder.

    Qian Ren Xue was playing with the Sea God Trident in her hands:
    “Maybe. But I can’t return this Sea God Trident to you. What if I can catch you three days later, but you won’t admit it? I don’t want your dead body. I will keep this Sea God Trident. If you submit to me, I will give you back.”

    Tang San’s assumption went well. Everything was going on as he expected. However, Qian Ren Xue wasn’t an idiot. She was brilliant too. Vaguely, she could sense that Tang San had some tricks in this game. She wouldn’t give him back the trident that easy.

    Looking at the Sea God Trident, Tang San determinedly said:
    “Alright, one day I will take the Sea God Trident back from your hands.”

  16. Chapter 296 – The Tenth Spirit Ring – A God Level Spirit Ring (Part 2)

    Boom. Light as bright as flame burst out from Tang San’s body. Concurrently, he hauled an incense out of his chest, holding it in his hand. (The incense is used to measure time. Usually, it would take around 30 minutes to burn one piece completely.)

    Qian Ren Xue casually put the Sea God Trident into the ground. This time she wasn’t as careless as before. The gold light shone as she released her six-winged seraphim spirit.

    Six dazzling wings on her back extended, creating a tremendous pressure that could tilt the sky. This pressure suffocated Tang San. The absolute restraint feeling made people feel helpless.

    Nine spirit rings of the Blue Silver Emperor appeared on Tang San’s body. Those nine spirit rings couldn’t be considered splendid. Five black ones and four red ones. Five fifty-thousand-year ones and four one-hundred-thousand-year ones. Almost no Title Douluo in the Spirit Master World could compare with Tang San about the number of strong spirit rings.

    However, talking about the beauty of the spirit rings set, Tang San’s was far away to compare with Qian Ren Xue. There were nine spirit rings arranged neatly on Qian Ren Xue’s body now. The first seven looked different from the time he first met her. Of course, she couldn’t be like Tang San, pouring the power of his spirit rings to other people and then had the absolute luck to gain another two spirit rings from the one hundred-thousand-year spirit beasts. The color of her spirit rings could be changed due to the advantage she got after she received the god’s inheritance. Even if Qian Ren Xue had finished her inheritance process, her nine spirit rings set was still weaker than Tang San’s. She had one one-hundred-thousand-year spirit rings less than what Tang San had. This showed that Tang San was somewhat a genius to use his mortal body to strike against God but still have a chance to win.

    The spirit rings on Qian Ren Xue’s body weren’t normal anymore. A dim gold nimbus had covered all of them. Although their original colors could be seen, they looked more stunning. Tang San knew that this was the special feature of the god level spirit rings.

    Under the god’s influence, each spirit ring of Qian Ren Xue had a part of God power and aura. This somehow affected the spirit rings in a good way that normal spirit masters couldn’t compare.

    But those nine shining spirit rings couldn’t scare Tang San. The first time he had fought with Qian Ren Xue, she didn’t release her six-winged spirit, he didn’t have a chance to see her spirit rings. Beholding them right now, Tand San felt his mind was shaken.

    Tang San was a stubborn guy but still affected just by seeing her spirit rings. There was no doubt about how tremendous they were. But they were not just nine spirit rings. He could see the tenth one on Qian Ren Xue’s body. Yes, the tenth spirit ring!
    It was a gold spirit ring, looked like it was made from angel’s gold feathers. This tenth spirit ring was massive; its diameter was three meter in full. It was hovering behind Qian Ren Xue, enveloping her body and the six wings, just like a regular spirit ring. Tang San could see it was like an ordinary spirit ring of any spirit masters, but it was totally different.

    Each ten levels was a period of cultivation. When a spirit master had broken through each ten levels, he needed a spirit ring to improve his capacity, boosting his power to the next level. It was also the process of change in quantity leads to change in quality. At level ninety he had to earn his ninth spirit ring, so ninety was considered the peak level of a spirit master. Breaking through level one hundred meant she had leaped another ten levels, having the tenth spirit ring was “reasonably logical.” This “reasonably logical” tenth spirit ring had shaken Tang San. The first nine spirit rings were all mortal level, but this tenth spirit ring was totally a God level. We couldn’t use “year of cultivation” to measure a god level’s golden spirit ring. It wasn’t something that the one hundred thousand years spirit ring could compare.

    “Tang San, yesterday, I saw you released your Blue Silver Emperor spirit, I was surprised that you had so many high-quality spirit rings. You’re not a god yet. I don’t know why you could do that. It’s possible for your second spirit to improve the quality of the spirit rings, but the Blue Silver Emperor is your first spirit, also the one you usually use, how it could be like that?”

    Tang San’s right hand caressed the incense, using his inner force to burn it. His hand swung, darting the incense to a tree far from there.

    “Aren’t you afraid of wasting time if I take time and explain to you?”
    Tang San looked at Qian Ren Xue. Blue-gold light waves surged one by one from his body. He was under the massive pressure of the god level, but he didn’t back off a step. The divine light in his eyes burst out wildly, looked like he was entering a unique state.

    “The time to burn an incense is not neither long nor short. A little bit of delay doesn’t count. Will you explain to me?”
    Qian Ren Xue smiled faintly; she didn’t care about the burning incense.

    Tang San said:
    “It’s ok if I tell you. To save Xiao Wu, I had returned the spirit ring and spirit bone she had sacrificed for me. Also, I gave her a big part of my spirit rings to help her resurrect. Of course, I had to find other spirit rings to make up for the ones I had lost. I had found higher level spirit rings that suit me. That’s what you can see now.”

    “Is it possible to resurrect the sacrificed spirit beasts?”
    Qian Ren Xue was shaken, looking at Tang San with doubt in her eyes:
    “You are the man who is good at creating miracles…”

    “It wasn’t me who is good enough. You, Spirit Hall, had forced me to do that. It’s your Spirit Hall that had ignited Xiao Wu’s sacrifice. Xiao Wu is my lover, together with my parents, my teacher’s resentments, the Spirit Hall and I are archenemies.”

    Qian Ren Xue sighed:
    “The Creator has tantalized us, making us the enemies. If you were from the Spirit Hall, you might still have other thoughts. The incense is burning now, show me what you got to endure my attack during this period.”
    Tang San laughed out loud:
    “I don’t want to suffer from your attack for half an hour. I want to maintain my attack continuously for half an hour. Watch out!”

    Boom. Blue-gold light burst. All nine spirit rings on Tang San’s body were glowing. Their original red and black colors disappeared, left only the shining blue-gold. Nine spirit rings of the Blue Silver Emperor totally turned into blue-gold, same color with his body now.

    “What? What is that ability? Is it an ability you just develop?”
    Qian Ren Xue didn’t rush to attack him. She was amazed looking at the changes on Tang San’s body. Up to now, she hadn’t seen any spirit master could change his spirit rings accordingly with the spirit. Before she had become the god, she couldn’t think or even thought about that.

    Boom —

    The blue-gold flame furiously covered Tang San. He dashed toward Qian Ren Xue just like a rocket, without using any spirit ability. As he said before, he only used pure strength to attack a god level spirit master like Qian Ren Xue.

    Qian Ren Xue didn’t avoid him. Six wings on her back slightly flapped, she came in front of Tang San in a flash. Her divine sense could see his weakness pretty clearly. She arrived when Tang San hadn’t plunged over. His power hadn’t been accumulated to the peak.

    Tang San’s movements and reactions were so fast nothing could compare. He punched with his right fist. The blue-gold flame covered the fist now turned to emerald, heading directly toward Qian Ren Xue’s chest.

    A direct yet simple punch brought Qian Ren Xue a complicated feeling. Right now, she could feel clearly that all the Blue Silver Grass in Star Dou Forest had fused with his fist, bringing all of their power along with this punch.

    Qian Ren Xue’s gold hand and the full vitality fist, which was covered with blue-gold flame, impacted. BOOM. The blue-gold flame blazed up; Tang San jerked back at the same time. Qian Ren Xue’s god level body was stunned for a while in mid-air. The massive vitality’s aura had oppressed her divine sense and revealed her flaw.

    How could it be? Qian Ren Xue widened her eyes in shock. She didn’t understand how Tang San could do that. He hadn’t released the Blue Silver Emperor spirit, but he could mobilize the energy of all Blue Silver Grass in Star Dou Forest. This was absolutely the god-level power. Moreover, it was the power of God of Nature.

    However, Qian Ren Xue quickly realized that Tang San didn’t get hurt and he could even prevent her god power from intruding his body. But one of the nine spirit rings flying around him was smashed, turning into numerous blue-gold light spots then disappeared.

    What happened? Qian Ren Xue studied him astoundingly. His body had plunged backward for several meters then stopped. Right now, his eyes had turned to blue-gold with furiously burning flame. He looked like the king of all animals. Nothing could compare to his torrential aura. The immense blue-gold flame was bursting continuously, even faster and more furious than before. Apparently, the power he was releasing now had reached a formidable level.

    Qian Ren Xue frowned. She didn’t storm forward. Gold light on her body burst out in a flash, turning into a gold burning flame that twisted the air surrounded it. The boundless God aura seemed like it wanted to escape by piercing through her body. Both of her hands moved at the same time. One punched Tang San, who was dashing toward her. The other directly snatched his shoulder. Her speed was as fast as the electric flash. Just in a moment, the dim gold had covered his entire body, also enveloped the blue-gold flame.

    After getting prevented a few times, Qian Ren Xue finally released her true god power. Even though she didn’t use the divine weapon of the Angelic God, still, she was a god, she could subdue Tang San altogether.

    However, Tang San, who was bringing with him the endless wild aura, had stopped in the middle of the air then stretched out two hands to draw a bizarre circle. An immense pulling force appeared, dragging and accumulating all power including the blue-gold flame on his hands, turning them into a vortex of torrential blue-gold flame in front of his chest.

    Qian Ren Xue vaguely stepped. She felt the one who was standing in front of her wasn’t a real object. It looked like there were several illusions appeared at the same time. Using her divine sense, she could find out which one was the real Tang San. However, Tang San’s illusions had taken some energy from her attack.

    “Break it!”

    Tang San shouted. With an aggressive roar, which was full of powerful aura, the blue-gold vortex on his hand broke together with the explosion of his second spirit rings. The tremendous explosive power had turned the blue-gold light into gold. The boundless surge energy plunged up, turning into a giant gold light pillar, furiously breaking Qian Ren Xue’s gold light layer.

    At the same time, both of his hands had impacted with Qian Ren Xue’s hands. Tang San’s left hand had created a tremendous suction force. Meanwhile, his right hand had a powerful pushing force. One pulled, one pushed. Qian Ren Xue surprisingly felt her body was tilted. Most energies of her power were dissolved, left only a little part impacting Tang San. Their bodies concurrently changed positions, sliding and plunging dozens of meters to stabilize.

    God level strength! Qian Ren Xue had become more solemn. Through those two strikes, Qian Ren Xue was sure that Tang San had used some unique method to stimulated his strength. He didn’t use spirit abilities, but his strength had reached God level already. Qian Ren Xue didn’t know how he did that, but he could feel the threatening aura from Tang San. Is he waiting for me to use the spirit abilities first? Qian Ren Xue asked herself.

    No, absolutely no! Qian Ren Xue’s eyes became earnest. Her pride didn’t allow her to do that. Tang San might haven’t urged spirit abilities because he wasn’t able to do that now. Nevertheless, she didn’t want to use spirit abilities. She wanted to use the simplest method to defeat Tang San.
    Tang San moved again. His body had become more illusory this time. It was just like a ghost shadow bringing numerous fading shadows coming from every direction, dashing toward Qian Ren Xue.

    Qian Ren Xue coldly snorted:
    “Little bead wants to shine under the moonlight huh!”

    Boom. Six wings stretched out at the same time. The gold flame that nothing could compare covered her body in a second, making her a golden shooting star. Qian Ren Xue didn’t care even when Tang San had turned into shadows, clenched her fist and punched toward the location of his real body, using her divine sense.

    One gold shadow and one blue-gold shadow were dashing fast. Tang San didn’t have the intention to avoid her, clenching his fists. The blue-gold flame had been accumulated on his fists. The Eight Spider Lances on his back had broken through his body to stretch out since he had urged all of his energy to gather at one point.

    BANG —–

    Two figures collided. A massive gold light column plunged up to the sky that dimmed the entire Star Dou Forest. A big area of Blue Silver Grass had released the blue-gold light furiously then shriveled before turning into ash. They had poured all of their energy to Tang San. That was how he could survive this strike. Even so, Blue Silver Grass in Star Dou Forest was still excited. It was an absolute glory dying for their king.

    Qian Ren Xue’s body was stunned right at their impacted area, while Tang San’s was blown a thousand meters away. His sturdy body had washed many plants on the way. His light-gold color blood spouted from his mouth. Each spurt of blood had turned into burning blue-gold flame.

    Qian Ren Xue had fully exposed the invincible power of the god level. With anger, she had blown Tang San away and hurt him.

    Simultaneously, the third spirit ring on Tang San’s body was smashed. However, Qian Ren Xue could feel that although Tang San got hurt, his wounds weren’t so severe. Quite contrary, he took the advantage when his body was being blown away to dissolve the angelic power on his body.

    Qian Ren Xue inaudibly complimented him. She understood that she wasn’t as good as Tang San when talking about using and dissolving power. If he had the same capacity, I couldn’t be his opponent. A murderous look appeared from the bottom of her eyes. Such a man I couldn’t control and he is the biggest flaw in my heart, I should kill him. If not, when he becomes a god in the future, he will be the greatest threat to Spirit Empire. The Spirit Empire would be pushed to the edge of termination.

  17. All caught up which is so sad. I want it all! I’m a greedy reader. Good work on the translations it makes me wish I had the willpower to learn the original language.

  18. i just looked it up and it looks like another translation group picked up the novel and finished it a few weeks ago. they do not look to be nearly as good as bagelson at translations but I feel obligated to make this post linking to their site. https://wuxiadream.net/category/douluo-dalu/
    maybe bagelson can use their poorly translated works to speed up his work!

  19. I don’t see why tang san has to be a dick, ‘better jade than tile’ is primo bull, she clearly doesn’t want to hurt him, so he could totally talk his way out without compromising his own ideals, instead, he’s provoking a literal god, so he SHOULD die, but it’s presumably so that we can have a meaningless fight flexing plot armour before the actual finale, I’m struggling to support all of the authors decisions,

    Thanks bagel
