Tang Wulin drew in a cold breath. He had actually faced the terror of being on the abyssal plane before, and he did not expect that the linkage of the abyssal plane was not coincidental but due to the Douluo Continent being too weak. These words affected him immensely.
The Azure Oxpython spoke, “The Ten Thousand Beast Platform plane that you’re seeing now was actually created by Er Ming and me using a small plane. At the time, Er Ming and I were reluctant to return to the Divine Realm after your sister and your brother-in-law left. We preferred living on the Douluo Continent, so we attempted to make a place for us to stay on a small plane when we were free and bored. Little did we know that this place would end up becoming the last refuge for soul beasts.”
“When we discovered that humans were already powerful enough to threaten the lives of all soul beasts, we were surprised and angry. We were planning to tell Tang San so he could keep the balance, but we found that the Divine Realm could not be contacted at all. Just as the humans predicted, the Divine Realm had vanished. Left behind, it was impossible for both of us to fight against all of mankind with only our own strength. Out of helplessness, all we could do was try to take in more soul beasts into this plane. Otherwise, you humans would have completely annihilated the soul beasts.”
Tang Wulin noticed clearly that every time Da Ming and Er Ming said ‘mankind’, the word was filled with a deep hatred and agony. He could not help feeling depressed. One could only imagine the effect humans had had on the world of soul beasts.
Tang Wulin spoke, “So what is the Ten Thousand Beast Platform linked up with the Spirit Pagoda now? Why is Spirit Pagoda allowed to bring in humans? Isn’t that going to result in more soul beasts getting killed?”
Da Ming scoffed coldly. “That is none of your business. Naturally, we have our own ends.”
For some reason, Tang Wulin suddenly felt a chill run down his spine when he heard Da Ming’s words. He seemed to be able to feel that this would not be to mankind’s benefit.
“Uncles, I don’t know how to respond really. I can only say that not all mankind is bad. After all, both of you were my father and my brother-in-law’s friends. They were both very good people. Thus, I can only hope that you won’t look upon all mankind with hatred,” said Tang Wulin sincerely.
Da Ming’s gaze turned gentler. “We know that not all mankind is bad, of course, and we will not be trying to finish them off. That is unfair to mankind. Alright, we’ve told you about the general situation. It’s now your turn to tell us what your father told you. What is the situation of the Divine Realm now?”
Tang Wulin nodded. He recounted everything that he knew in detail. He talked about when he was infused with the Golden Dragon King’s energy after being bitten by a dying dragon and how his parents had no choice but to leave him on the Douluo Continent to prevent him from dying in the Divine Realm.
Then, he elaborated on the situation with the time-space turbulence that Tang San told him about.
“A collision between Divine Realms?” Da Ming and Er Ming could not help expressing their shock when they learned from Tang Wulin that Tang San was guiding the Divine Realm to cause a collision with the other Divine Realms in a place far, far away.
Tang Wulin nodded and said, “Father gave me coordinates and asked me to go looking for them when I’ve reached Godhood-rank. The coordinates given are two-way. I must be powerful enough to trigger them. By then, it should help them to return.”
Da Ming and Er Ming nodded and exchanged glances. Da Ming heaved a sigh. “So it turns out this is what happened. I truly didn’t expect that our Divine Realm would encounter such a problem given how powerful it is. It seems like there must have been some unforeseen event that happened to the Divine Realm long ago. Otherwise, even the time-space turbulence couldn’t have swept it away that easily.”

Tang Wulin shook his head. “I don’t know about that. Father and I had only managed to communicate with each other for a very short period of time, so he could only tell me about the most important matters.”
Da Ming spoke, “How’s the situation with your Golden Dragon King’s seal now? Is it giving you any trouble?”
Tang Wulin said, “There are a total of eighteen layers to the Golden Dragon King’s seal and I’ve already broken twelve layers. I absorbed the essence in it, and as a result, my cultivation speed has accelerated rapidly. I don’t have any issue with the latter seals at the moment. After my recent cultivation, I think that I should be able to withstand another one or two layers. Every layer that comes after the ninth seal will have a tremendous effect. Even I have no idea what the extent of my endurance is. According to Father, I should slow down the speed of my breakthroughs as much as I can.”
Er Ming nodded and said, “That is true. The Golden Dragon King is no ordinary creature. If that’s the case…” At this point, he paused for a moment and cast his eyes toward Da Ming.
Da Ming shook his head toward Er Ming and said to Tang Wulin, “You should continue to exercise control over your Golden Dragon King Seal. We will do all that we can to help you if there’s truly an issue. You must depend on yourself even more than the elevation of your cultivation base. You’re already capable of performing Thought Concretization at your age. This is not only the benefits of the Golden Dragon King Seal, but more importantly, it’s your own hard work. I feel that I’m able to see your father’s old figure in you. As a result, you must never underestimate yourself.”
Tang Wulin could not refrain himself from asking, “Uncles, what is the situation with both of you on this plane? Are you allowed to enter and leave at will?”
Da Ming answered, “It’s not as easy as you think it is. In simple terms, we can be considered the lords of this plane. We exercise control over everything here, but this has also caused an issue, which is that we can’t leave this place. Without the support from its lords, the plane will immediately break apart and everything will be lost to the void. Moreover, even if one of us leaves this place, we can’t leave for too long either.”
Tang Wulin was enlightened. He said, “So that’s how it is.”
Da Ming spoke, “I know that you have many matters to attend to now. We’ve heard about the situation with the Tang Sect and Shrek too. However, I must tell you that you can only depend on yourself for this. We can’t help you with that.”
Tang Wulin was stunned. He had not expected that Da Ming would have already rejected him before he could even ask for help.
Da Ming spoke in a deep voice, “As the kings of the soul beasts, we will always remain as soul beasts regardless. We are grateful to your father for resurrecting us in the Divine Realm, but when it comes to the lives of our population, we will always stand on the soul beasts’ side at all times. We don’t want to be involved in the disputes of mankind. Thus, we will never help you in your conflicts. So what if Shrek is rebuilt? So what if the Tang Sect becomes powerful? They won’t be able to provide us with the living space that our soul beasts had once upon a time.”
Tang Wulin felt dejected and nodded softly. “Don’t worry, uncles. I will put in more effort by myself.”
Er Ming patted Tang Wulin’s shoulder. “There’s no need to be pessimistic either. You’re already better equipped than other soul masters. Don’t forget that you’re Tang San’s son. When your father turned back the power of darkness back then, he depended on himself and his companions. I believe that what he did, you can certainly do as well. Moreover, even though we won’t actively help you in the human conflict, there’s something that we must pledge. You are the son of Tang San and Xiao Wu, so that makes you our nephew. We don’t have any descendants. As a result, you’re just like our son in a sense. Thus, we will help you when you’re in danger regardless.”
After listening to Er Ming’s words, Tang Wulin suddenly had a thought arise in his mind. He said, “Uncle Er Ming, did you just say that you don’t have any descendants? But there’s a human clan with the surname ‘Yuanen’. They said that they are derived from the lineage of the Titan Giant Ape and they also possess the Titan Giant Ape martial soul. Is that not related to you?”
