Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 1738
A Gentleman Should Wait To Seek Revenge
The acquisition of the Eternal Heaven by Shrek Academy and the Tang Sect had resulted in the change which affected the entire continent.
The Dove Faction had regained their position in the parliament and were treated as equals with the Hawk Faction. Mo Lan was recognized officially as the leader of the Dove Faction.
For the Hawk Faction, the resignation of the Boundless Sea Douluo Chen Xinjie had caused power struggles internally and resulted in changes within the faction. After a few clashes, the ownership of the Sea God Army was finally established.
The war against the Star Luo Empire and the Dou Spirit Empire was shelved as a result.
Should the Tang Sect and Shrek be punished? Perhaps, someone should get them into trouble?
You gotta be kidding. Never mind the fact that there were so many Limit Douluos in Shrek Academy and the Tang Sect. Having the Eternal Heaven was deterrent enough to make the Spirit Pagoda lose its voice. The Eternal Heaven was absolutely a fatal weapon which could easily annihilate an entire city!
It was a strategic weapon. Whoever had it would have a powerful deterrent.
Moreover, the reconstruction of Shrek City allowed the Tang Sect and Shrek City to be officially linked together. The new Shrek City had become the prime location of today’s continent.
Every inch of land in the new Shrek City cost an arm and a leg. However, one would need to pass Shrek Academy’s strict vetting process in order to build a settlement there.
Following the flourishing reputation of Shrek City, the Spirit Academy suffered the biggest blow of all. When Shrek Academy was crowned the number one academy on the continent once again, the Spirit Academy’s influence dwindled to its lowest point naturally.
Perhaps it was due to the crushing blow, the Spirit Pagoda ceased most activities ever since the organization was tricked by the War God Hall. Apart from its regular operations, the Ten Thousand Beast Platform remained the Spirit Pagoda’s biggest hit. The organization ceased operations in most of its activities including participating in the parliament. The Spirit Pagoda did not even query the missing Eternal Heaven. The higher order of the parliament kept a tight lid on the incident as well.
Yet, those who were well-informed knew that Shrek would certainly have an uprising, and no one could challenge Shrek and the Tang Sect anymore.
Shrek City had returned to its prior state before it was destroyed in a single night. Although the current Shrek still could not compare to the previous Shrek Academy with numerous Title Douluos who were its teachers, Shrek’s new era was rising with the growth of Tang Wulin’s generation. In addition, they had recruited the Titan Giant Ape clan and the Qilin Douluo. Besides, there was Old Chen the sweeper whom the outsiders were unaware of.
Currently, the total fighting capacity of Shrek surpassed the generation of the Atlas Douluo in the past.
Shrek was capable of recovering in such a short period of time due to the determination and growth of Tang Wulin’s generation. More importantly, there was also the inheritance which had been accumulated over the years.
There were countless powerhouses on the entire continent who graduated from Shrek such as the Skycrosser Douluo Guan Yue. They spared no effort to help in the recovery process of Shrek. It was crucial. Shrek had the accumulation of twenty thousand years. So, how could it just vanish like that?
No word was more apt than the word ‘harmony’ to describe the current Douluo Continent. There was only a single piece of news which still shocked the soul masters’ world on the continent. It was the fact that Tang Wulin was a Divine Craftsman.
After receiving recognition from many organizations including the Blacksmith’s Association, it was officially confirmed that the Pavilion Master of the Sea God’s Pavilion in Shrek Academy and the Tang Sect’s Sect Master was a Divine Craftsman. He was the second person capable of performing the Heavenly Refinement after the Divine Craftsman Zhen Hua.
At any rate, the Divine Craftsman Zhen Hua announced that he would not be taking any more Heavenly Refinement applications due to health reasons. The Blacksmith’s Association confirmed the announcement. He was retiring officially after which he would just focus on teaching.
As soon as the announcement was made, Tang Wulin became the only person in today’s continent who could perform the Heavenly Refinement and make the four-word battle armor. He was the sole person remaining.
This was crucial for the elevation of Shrek’s status. Shrek had never produced a Divine Craftsman even during its peak.
“Now that the political situation has stabilized and we’ve your utmost support, our lives will be much better now. The Independent Faction is with us too. I wonder if you would consider taking a few seats in the parliament?” asked Mo Lan as she took a sip of the tea and looked at the handsome and matured Tang Wulin.
She purposely came to meet Tang Wulin in Shrek Academy today just to update him on the recent events in the parliament.
Tang Wulin said smilingly, “It’s better that we don’t. Shrek didn’t join in the past and we won’t join the parliament in the future either. We shall remain neutral. This has always been Shrek’s way. I can’t break the rule!”
Mo Lan heaved a sigh softly. “At times, you’ll still need to influence the authority. There are quite a number of good people in the world. Unfortunately, there’s an equal number of bad people. The catastrophe that struck Shrek in the past was largely due to Shrek’s apathy in gaining authority.”
Tang Wulin said, “After all, an academy is just an academy. If we’re involved in politics, Shrek won’t be impartial anymore. The past catastrophe was a major disaster to Shrek, but it also reminded us that we need to be more powerful. Moreover, we must ensure it doesn’t happen twice. Sister, we’ll always support the Independent Faction and the Dove Faction. Isn’t the current political situation stable?”
“Are you still planning to seek revenge?” It was the question that Mo Lan wanted to ask the most during this visit.
Those who were discerning could tell that the attack on Shrek City was certainly related to the Spirit Pagoda. The Holy Spirit Cult had gone missing but not the Spirit Pagoda. Mo Lan agreed that the current peaceful situation was the best for the continent. Could Shrek not seek revenge in their deep-seated hatred? If Shrek were to take action against the Spirit Pagoda, it would certainly result in unwanted bloodshed.
The Spirit Pagoda was wealthy beyond comparison. How many powerhouses had they roped in? The moment Shrek Academy and the Tang Sect acted against the Spirit Pagoda, the peaceful situation which was achieved with great effort would certainly be destroyed. Mo Lan did not wish to see that.
Tang Wulin looked toward Mo Lan and said in all apparent seriousness, “Sister, do you think that we should seek revenge?”
Mo Lan was stunned for a moment. She did not expect Tang Wulin to answer the question with a question. She had no idea how to respond to the question either.
Tang Wulin smiled calmly. “Sister, there’s no need to worry about this matter. There are some things that need to be handled anyhow. Shrek and the Tang Sect have been passive for such a long time. It’s only because a gentleman should wait for his time to seek revenge.”
How could they stand by their bloody feud and not seek revenge? The familiar names of the Atlas Douluo Yun Ming, the Silver Moon Douluo Cai Yue’er, the Scarlet Dragon Douluo Zhuo Shi, the Blazing Douluo Feng Wuyu had cropped up in Tang Wulin’s mind countless times. They were the mainstay who had supported Shrek at one point. More than that, they had sacrificed their lives in order to protect the students during the catastrophe.
The teachers of Shrek sacrificed their lives for the survival of Shrek’s younger generation and the possibility of Shrek’s uprising in the future.
Not seek revenge anymore? Would any of the teachers in Shrek now agree to that?
There were many familiar names in the Tang Sect similarly. The numerous hall masters in the past and the brothers from the Battle Soul Hall. The headquarters of the Tang Sect was completely destroyed in the catastrophe. At any rate, how did this all come about?
Was it the Holy Spirit Cult’s doings? Could the Holy Spirit Cult have the audacity to take action on two powerful organizations? Could the Holy Spirit Cult have the ability to acquire two Godkiller-ranked fixed soul ammunition? No, of course not. To be sure, they were the culprits, but the Spirit Pagoda was similarly providing them the support.
During Shrek’s recovery, they were passively on the defense on every occasion, and they struggled to survive under the Spirit Pagoda’s oppression.
Now that everything was stable and they were on firm ground, their time to seek revenge was coming soon!
