Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 1884
Seventy Percent Confident
Tang Wulin turned to Gu Yuena and she was looking back at him.Their eyes met, and the two of them could see far more than what was revealed in each other’s gaze.
Tang Wulin took a deep breath and said grimly, “Supreme Commander, there’s nothing absolute in this world. I can only pay with my own life. As long as I still have breath in me, I will certainly carry on fighting. If I were going against the Demon Empress alone, I am twenty percent sure that both of us will kill each other. If I fail and she defeats me, I’m forty percent sure that I’ll be able to injure her severely before I die. However, this is going to be three rounds of seven-on-seven matches. With the Spirit Pagoda Master and the combination of our powers, I am seventy percent confident that we can defeat the Demon Empress.”
As soon as he said that, all of those present were shocked. No one had expected that Tang Wulin would actually voice out such a commitment.
Even the people from the Tang Sect and Shrek Academy were startled. This was not a joking matter! This was related to the future of the Federation and the survival of all humankind!
Seventy percent was considered an exceedingly high number on a battlefield like this. If Tang Wulin could say he was so confident, it meant that he might have been close to a hundred percent confident!
Nevertheless, the Demon Empress was already a genuine God-ranked powerhouse. Although she did not have the addition of her Godhood Tablet, her soul power and spiritual power were truly at the God rank. How could Tang Wulin be so sure of himself when he was facing such an opponent?
Hence, Yu Guanzhi had an incredulous look on his face upon hearing Tang Wulin’s answer. He could not help saying, “Really?”
Of all the warriors present, perhaps only the other six Shrek Monsters could figure out where his confidence came from.
Tang Wulin did not answer right away, but he looked at Gu Yuena by his side with his eyes ablaze as if he was waiting for her answer.
Gu Yuena met his gaze. It took more than ten full seconds before she determinedly nodded. “Yes.”
Her assurance was even more shocking than Tang Wulin’s word alone. Who had the most outstanding performance during the earlier battles and made the biggest contribution of all? There was no doubt that it was this Silver Dragon Princess Gu Yuena. It was her, the Silver Dragon Dancing Qilin Gu Yuena!
It was this newly appointed Spirit Pagoda’s Pagoda Master that stopped the Spirit Monarch, a deadly foe with a Divine Origin spiritual cultivation base. It could be said that she was the pillar of the human forces before Tang Wulin’s return! It was her presence that ensured that mankind’s legion had not collapsed despite experiencing a few serious threats. Thanks to her, they lasted until Tang Wulin’s return.
More importantly, the Spirit Monarch was the supreme commander of the abyssal legion. Killing him led to the complete collapse of the Abyssal Spirit Dragon Clan and turned the tide of battle. With that, Gu Yuena had made the biggest contribution of all.
She was also the one that pulled the declining Spirit Pagoda together and started afresh. She helped the organization to stand up to the world again. It could be said that Gu Yuena relied on her incredible abilities to establish her status in the Spirit Pagoda. No one could compare to her in this!
As the leader of Shrek Academy and the Tang Sect, Tang Wulin would never speak without thinking. In addition, he had the recognition of the current Spirit Pagoda’s Pagoda Master. Given that the Pagoda Master had just killed the Spirit Monarch, he could be seen as highly reliable.
“Pagoda Master, are you sure?” Qiangu Dieting could not help but ask.
Despite his arrogance, Qiangu Dieting finally realized that Gu Yuena had been concealing her abilities after she killed the Spirit Monarch.
She had always been suppressing herself, but the young maiden actually possessed such terrifying strength.
There was no time for him to ponder on where her abilities came from, but he could be certain that her status in the organization had been firmly cemented. The Qiangu Clan was destined to fall. The only wisp of hope left in their hearts was the relationship between Gu Yuena and Qiangu Dieting.
Gu Yuena turned her head to the side and took a glance at Qiangu Dieting. Then, she said in a deep voice, “I’m sure. We have at least a seventy percent chance of defeating the Demon Empress through the combined efforts of myself and the Tang Sect Master. Besides the Demon Empress, I think that the rest of them should not be able to threaten us. If I’m not mistaken, the Demon Empress must have proposed the bet to achieve some goal of hers. However, she is not the only one with goals. We have our own as well.”
Yu Guanzhi had no choice but to ask, “There are certain matters that I have no business meddling with. That being said, this wager is an important matter. I can only come to a conclusion after understanding the situation. This is crucial to our survival and the lives of everyone on the entire continent. Thus, Pagoda Master Gu, Tang Sect Master, will you please tell me exactly what your goals are? This way, I can make the final decision.”
Judging Tang Wulin and Gu Yuena’s statements, the two of them had already expressed their wishes clearly. They were willing to partake in the huge bet. On the other hand, Yu Guan represented the military. If he and the War God Hall were to agree, the matter would be considered settled.
There was a saying: ‘a field commander must decide even against the king’s orders’. Yu Guanzhi had already stated his view that the Federation should not be consulted as he would decide on their behalf. On the other hand, one could imagine the difficulty of making the decision.
Tang Wulin glanced at Gu Yuena and she nodded back at him. The understanding between them was so good that it disgruntled the father and son, Qiangu Dieting and Qiangu Dongfeng. Their eyes showed a dash of displeasure.
In any case, Gu Yuena was no longer who she used to be, so they could not express their displeasure regardless.
Tang Wulin drew a circle with his right hand and conjured a ray of light to cover himself, Gu Yuena, Yu Guanzhi, and the War God Hall’s Hall Master, the Skycrosser Douluo Guan Yue.
Upon seeing this, the rest of the group did not react much. Qiangu Dieting and Qiangu Dongfeng’s expressions turned unpleasant.
Everyone on the scene was one of humanity’s elite warriors. Why was Tang Wulin doing this? Who was he trying to guard against?
They assumed this was certainly not for the powerhouses from the Tang Sect and Shrek Academy. Then, the answer was clear to see. Who was so unworthy of their attention? There was no doubt it was the two of them and the Spirit Pagoda’s powerhouses that they led. Was he worried that they would divulge the secret to the Holy Spirit Cult?
The gentle radiance formed a shield of light that enshrouded all four of them. Tang Wulin’s mouth was moving as if he was speaking. Gu Yuena’s expression was calm while Yu Guanzhi and Guan Yue looked astonished. For some reason, they soon looked overjoyed and began nodding in succession. Guan Yue even gave Tang Wulin a big thumbs up.
Radiance shimmered and the light shield faded. Compared to the serious and solemn atmosphere before, Yu Guanzhi appeared to be in high and vigorous spirits. He smiled and said, “The Tang Sect Master has convinced me. On behalf of the military, I have no objections.”
The Boundless Sea Douluo Chen Xinjie had already died in the battle. The surviving Limit Douluo-ranked military powerhouses were the Ferocious Wolf Douluo Dong Zian, the Heartless Douluo Cao Dezhi, and the Bright Mirror Douluo Zhang Huanyun.
Cao Dezhi could not possibly oppose Tang Wulin when Zhang Huanyun was not around. Dong Zian’s reputation was tarnished during the earlier incident. Moreover, Yu Guanzhi was the supreme commander of the three armies. Thus, he represented all the armed forces.
The Skycrosser Douluuo Guan Yue nodded and said, “I agree as well. Additionally, our War God Hall is willing to undertake one of the rounds. I shall lead the team.”
Three rounds of seven-on-seven matches signified that both parties would need to send out twenty-one fighters.
Besides the one empress, the Holy Spirit Cult had two emperors and four great heavenly kings of darkness. The Darkness Phoenix was already dead and the Darkness Hummingbird died at Wu Zhangkong’s hands. There were only five of them left. The remaining powerhouses would have to be from the abyssal plane.
On the other hand, mankind’s legion would be sending out numerous powerhouses. When seen from the surface, the humans were definitely not going to be found short. After all, the number of Limit Douluos and suits of four-word battle armor were abundant. Despite the passing of the Boundless Sea Douluo Chen Xinjie, the Light Dark Douluo Long Yeyue, and the Heavenly Phoenix Douluo, there were still quite a large number of powerhouses, especially from Shrek Academy and the Tang Sect. They were well-equipped with a formidable fighting force.
