Chapter 1962 I’ll Still Have To Confront IShe was her father’s daughter, her husband’s wife and her son’s mother.How many women were there on Douluo Continent who shared the same identities as her? There were thousands and millions of them. She must take a stand in order to prevent more people from suffering the agony she endured. She must work hard so more people could live happily.When her family members passed away, the previous Mo Lan had already died. Her current self was just a brave shell. It was a shell that had the courage to face anything and everything.
“Sister!” Tang Wulin suddenly called out aloud.
Mo Lan stopped walking. She turned around to look at him.
Tang Wulin took a deep breath and made his way toward Mo Lan one step at a time. He made his way till he was facing her. Suddenly, he opened his arms to give her a hug.
Mo Lan chuckled with tears rolling down her face. She could feel the warmth of the hug.
“Sister, I’m your family. You’re not alone in this world.” Tang Wulin’s face was covered in tears as well.
“Brother, since you can’t run nor hide, we shall confront it with courage. We are fearless!”
In the new Shrek City.
It was a bustling scene outside the city.
“Over there. That’s right, put it over there. How is the adjustment of the reconnaissance device at location one? Is it linked to the satellite released to us by the Federation?”
“Is the soul artillery rocket formation at location two completed? What? You still need another hour? No way. I can only give you another twenty minutes at the most. If you don’t complete it by then, just you wait and see!”
“Hmm, alright. Pay attention to the safety of the soul ammunition storage. No open fires are allowed in the nearby areas. No nonsense. Do I look stupid that I don’t know open fires won’t affect soul ammunition in general? This is just in case the ammunition is detonated. It’s fine if you’re dead, but what if the entire city’s people are afflicted?”
“Hey, are you a fool? Is this how you install the system module? You’re going to waste another five minutes if you do this. What did I teach you? You useless imbecile, what will you do without me?”
The unruly voice was heard incessantly. It was even more surprising that whoever was reprimanded by her would perform better at their tasks in spite of being in a tense situation.
Ling Zichen was dressed in sports attire. Her forehead was sweating profusely as she bustled about. She was on a small-sized soul hoverboard which she rode at a height of less than ten meters. She had developed the product herself and it was yet to be mass produced.
It was the fourth day of Tang Wulin and Gu Yuena’s agreed time frame. The first batch of army from the Central Army Corps had arrived in Shrek City with their supplies.
Undoubtedly, the soul beast legion would need to pass through Shrek City first if they wanted to occupy the plane. The defense system in Shrek City was already fully completed. The only saving grace was that all the Tang Sect’s scientific researchers remained because their cultivation bases were either not high enough or they did not qualify to fuse with the ten thousand year spirit souls.
Meanwhile, Ling Zichen led them to set up the defense on the frontline and attack platforms as well.
Before the war against the abyssal plane in Thule, Ling Zichen was only famous within the Tang Sect , but now, she was a heroine renowned throughout the entire continent.
She was the inventor of the Eternal Heaven cannon who had utilized her body for testing and almost died in the process.
Soon after, she used herself as an ammunition to blast toward the abyssal passage without the slightest hesitation.
It could be said that she died twice on the battlefield against the abyssal plane. How could people not know about her presence and her brave spirit?
She was precisely the first person who began the comprehensive preparations when the abyssal legion appeared. In fact, Ling Zichen became the temporary supreme commander of Shrek City when Tang Wulin was in dejection for the past few days.
The military officers from the Central Army Corps were willing to submit to her order after witnessing her ferocious performance in Thule. They were fighting side by side with her at the time. Fortunately, with her resurrection at the end, Ling Zichen’s self-sacrifice ensured that more of them could live!
Ling Zichen was done managing most of the affairs with great effort. She raised her head and looked toward the sky in the distance. She gazed at the fuzzy nine-colored halo in the sky and cursed aloud, “What the f*ck is that? Why does Wulin like this kind of person? Hmph! Had I not lost the Eternal Heaven, I’d have blasted you to death with my cannon. Then, the b*st*rd Tang Wulin will be mine. Hmph! Just wait for your death. I’m using my trump card this time. I don’t believe that I can’t do it!”
A handkerchief suddenly appeared on Ling Zichen’s forehead. It startled her. She wanted to dodge it subconsciously, but she soon realized that the handkerchief was wiping away the sweat on her forehead.
“Who has the audacity to touch me? You must be trying to seek doom, right?” Ling Zichen was infuriated.
“I’m that b*st*rd whom you cursed!” A helpless voice was heard.
Only then did Ling Zichen notice the person next to her was precisely Tang Wulin.
At present, Tang Wulin was in Shrek Academy’s uniform. The uniform was green and filled with vitality.
“What are you doing? Trying to console me?” asked Ling Zichen in an unpleasant tone.
Tang Wulin smiled. “I’d like to know the trump card which you were referring to earlier?”
Ling Zichen rolled her eyes at him. “Why should I tell you? I won’t. What can you do then?”
Tang Wulin heaved a sigh helplessly. “Zichen, thank you.”
Ling Zichen was stunned for a moment. She did not expect Tang Wulin to react in such a manner.
“Don’t try to b*llsh*t! There’s no need to try to please me.” As she spoke, she turned her head away.
Tang Wulin chuckled. “Please continue with your tasks. I’m leaving. Bye.”
“Hey!” Ling Zichen suddenly called out to him.
“What is it?” asked Tang Wulin.
Ling Zichen said, “Are you okay?” Her utterance sounded gentler at last.
Tang Wulin nodded with a smile. “I still have to confront it, don’t I? Not only for myself but to ensure that thousands or even millions of ordinary people can survive.” As he spoke, he waved at Ling Zichen. He then left.
Ling Zichen gazed after his departing silhouette and recalled the words uttered by him. There were complicated emotions in her gaze which were a combination of heartache, rage, pity, and recalcitrance. Most of all, there was jealousy.
The Spirit Pagoda was up against Shrek Academy once again.
Perhaps, these two great organizations were enemies by nature. It began in the Qiangu Clan’s era when the Spirit Pagoda colluded with the Holy Spirit Cult to destroy Shrek Academy until now, when the Silver Dragon Princess Gu Yuena revealed she was the Silver Dragon King, the god of the soul beasts. She had seized control of the soul masters and led the soul beasts to seek revenge on mankind. The first people to bear the brunt were those from Shrek.
The great catastrophe in the past was still fresh in the minds of the people today. There were thousands of injuries and fatalities!
It was to be the greatest calamity that befell the Douluo Continent. There were the Holy Spirit Cult, the abyssal plane, and now the Ten Thousand Beast Platform which were not only hurting the living souls on the continent but mankind’s hearts as well.
The continent was in chaos. Most of the information could not be concealed from the public. They could only rely on the military system to maintain the order now.
As the newly-appointed speaker, Mo Lan used her own influence to gain the public’s confidence. She made her way to the frontlines by coming to the new Shrek City immediately.
She told the public that the soul beast legion would need to step over her dead body first in order to invade the continent.
Mo Lan even had a truthful discussion on the relationship between mankind’s soul masters and the soul beasts. She acknowledged the fact that today’s consequences were a result of mankind’s oppression of the soul beasts. It was a countercharge involving issues of ecological balance.
The God King Tang San, the lord of the plane Tang Hao, and the life core A Yin had solved the issue of life force for the entire Douluo Star, but the near extinction of the soul beasts was yet to be resolved all this while.
