Chapter 766: Gu Yue, Do You Love Me?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Tang Wulin shook his head and stared at Gu Yue. “I don’t need one minute. I’ll only need to ask her a question.”
“Gu Yue, I’ve only ever loved one girl in this world and that girl is you. Do you love me?”
He once had thousands and millions of words he wished to tell her, yet when he was truly confronting her, he could only speak these words. These words were already enough for him. He needed an answer, an answer that could make him stop caring for everything else or make him walk into another world.
He raised his right hand and extended his turned palm. Glossy golden scales spread from the exposed wrist all the way to his palm. Shining, golden claws appeared with his five fingers flexed inward. He pointed the sharp claw straight at the top of his head.
A gush of thick blood essence fluctuation burst out from his body abruptly. It was difficult to describe, but during that split second when the thick blood essence aura appeared, every single soul master with a dragon-type martial soul at the scene gave out a muffled grunt. They appeared ghastly pale and even Long Yue was no exception.
How was this possible? How could his blood essence be so powerful?
Long Yue’s face was dumbstruck with amazement. He thought that he had already achieved another level after his three years of painstaking cultivation. Tang Wulin was certainly no match for him three years ago. Even if his bloodline power was genuinely capable of suppressing Long Yue, he would never have defeated Long Yue if it was not for Gu Yue’s assistance.
Three years later, it was even more impossible. Long Yue was already a two-word battle armor master and he was one of the world’s most powerful. It seemed like he had already possessed the strength to confront and fight a Title Douluo.
Yet, just as that fellow’s bloodline aura burst out at that point, Long Yue fearfully discovered that there was an intense feeling of submission within his body’s bloodline power that was almost out of control due to the suppression from Tang Wulin’s blood essence fluctuation. It was as if it would only take one thought of his for the bloodline power in his body to strip away and submit itself before Tang Wulin.
His bloodline aura was several times more powerful compared to three years ago! How was this possible? How could a person’s bloodline aura be so strong?
“Brother, don’t!” Na’er shrieked yet she dared not move at all. She could clearly see the golden radiance pulsating on the Golden Dragon Claw. Tang Wulin would only need to lower his palm ever so slightly before he would graze his head.
“I’ll only need to know the answer, that is the answer in your heart. The genuine answer. Don’t lie to me. I can tell from your gaze and your bloodline. I can sense if you’re telling the truth.” Tang Wulin stared at Gu Yue with burning gaze without the slightest concession.
Gu Yue looked at him absentmindedly. Tears were no longer streaming down her face.
All of a sudden, she felt as if her entire body about was about to have a breakdown. She nodded strenuously as tears poured down her face once more. She could not help kneeling onto the lotus leaf. She could not speak anymore but only nodded vigorously.
Tang Wulin smiled proudly as he put down his right hand. He took a step forward and stood before her.
He pulled her up from the lotus leaf into his arms. An enormous creature emerged underneath Tang Wulin’s body accompanied by a valiant dragon’s roar that pushed his and her body into the air.
The massive beast’s thick and strong back limbs supported it beneath the Sea God Lake’s water. Its enormous body that had emerged from the surface of Sea God Lake’s water had already exceeded fifty meters.
That was the colossal Overlord Dragon, yet it did not look like a spirit soul but more like a genuine creature.
It had thick and heavy black scales, and blood red eyes that were huge, in addition to its terrifyingly humongous body. It displayed its incomparable power and that it was the most powerful dragon.
No matter how powerful Long Yue was, his Mountain Dragon King was just a martial soul. On the other hand, it was as if Tang Wulin managed to summon a genuine Overlord Dragon. Moreover, it was not an ordinary Overlord Dragon. There was a dark golden gloss that was shimmering faintly under its pitch black scales.
Gu Yue buried her charming face against Tang Wulin’s shoulder with her arms tightly clutching him. Just as she witnessed Tang Wulin point his Golden Dragon Claw at his head, that string that was tightly wound around her heart all along finally snapped. It had ruptured completely, and she could no longer suppress the emotion in the depths of her heart anymore. Her uncontrollable emotion burst out and drained through her tears profusely.
How could she ever forget the bits and pieces of their past, and the warmth she felt when she was with him once again? How could she forget about how he had always placed himself before her without hesitation when they faced danger together?
‘A man is not a stalk of grass or a tree!’
If her initial encounter with him was due to some ulterior motives, then with the passing of time, all her purpose had vanished in silence.
Despite knowing that she should not behave as such, she did not mind in the beginning because she trusted in her self-control. Just as she realized that everything had already begun to break away from her control, it was too late. Everything was already too late.
Tang Wulin’s silhouette had already rooted into the deepest part of her heart. How could she stay away from him so easily?
During that split second when she witnessed his appearance on the opposite side in the Sea God Fated Date Festival, she had almost lost control of her emotions. She used such tremendous energy in order to suppress the emotions in her heart!
She knew that she should absolutely never couple up with him even if she were to admit her defeat. Otherwise, everything else would be affected by him.
Hence, she refused to reveal herself from the beginning to the end. Part of her was even hoping for him to turn his back on her and leave with another lover.
Yet, she knew that she was wrong when he spoke of those words. At the same time, her face was covered in tears, her heart was filled with gratification.
Everything that she stopped herself from doing broke down during that moment when he raised his Golden Dragon Claw in the end. She only wished to hold him tight at that point. She leaned in his embrace as she sensed the warm hug that she had not felt for the past three years.
She cried her heart out. Every pent-up frustration that was accumulated in her heart seemed to have vanished without a trace at that point. She refused to think about anything else. She only wished to be a woman quietly for that very moment.
Tang Wulin hugged her tightly. His heart suddenly felt fulfilled. He knew that she still loved him when he saw tears streaming down her face and that time did not manage to weaken his feelings for her even a little. The words that she used to hurt him back then were nothing but her masks. As for why did she choose to put on those masks, did it matter? Was it still important now?
Dai Yun’er raised her head absentmindedly and looked at those two persons hugging tightly on the giant dragon’s head. She suddenly felt like her appearance was unnecessary. She did not resent him at all for it was precisely as he had said, they were acquainted with each other too late.
Na’er did not cry nor was she sad. She was smilingly joyously with a smile that was filled with gratification. No one knew what she was smiling about because there were very few people who saw the smile on her face at that exact moment.
“The ceremony is completed. I wish to congratulate Tang Wulin and Gu Yue for being destined for three reincarnations, and I wish the both of you to stay happily ever after,” Lan Muzi’s voice echoed through the entire scene.
Meanwhile, it was time for bride kidnapping, but for some unknown reason, Long Yue found he was unable to take a step forward reason despite having already been prepared to attack.
When faced with that enormous Overlord Dragon and the powerful bloodline aura emitted from Tang Wulin’s body, he found that he had no way to summon up the urge to attack.
Moreover, was this not something he wished to see? Tang Wulin did not couple with Yun’er anyhow.
He subconsciously took a glance at Xu Mi’er standing by his side. He looked toward that stern and even slightly aggressive maiden and discovered in astonishment that tears were gliding down Xu Mi’er’s eyes soundlessly. Tears streamed down her face because she was moved as she watched the two figures on the Overlord Dragon’s head. It was also at this point when Long Yue’s heart was suddenly stirred as if some feeling was being moved. This was a feeling that he had never felt before in his life.
