The Legend Of The Dragon King - Chapter 521
Wu Zhangkong had directly applied for the permit through Shrek Academy . However, it was only granted after taking the fact that Wu Zhangkong was an honorary citizen of Heaven Dou City into account, along with Mo Wu's help and guarantee . The value this card had far exceeded the mecha .
However, Tang Wulin was oblivious to all these things . With this card, his lowly yellow mecha could traverse unhindered across the continent . Naturally, the only condition was that he could not commit any wrongdoings . At the first sign of trouble, his Mecha Identification Card would be confiscated, and he would be blacklisted .
Wu Zhangkong did not emphasize this matter to Tang Wulin, because he believed that his disciple would never commit such a rookie mistake .
"Off we go!"Tang Wulin turned and said to Gu Yue who was only inches away from him .
The cockpit did not have much space . This was especially true for the person in the co-pilot's seat . Gu Yue had a slender build, so it was not so cramped for her . However, she was not that comfortable either .
Tang Wulin could pick up a faint fragrance from Gu Yue because of the cramped space . The fragrance was very gentle and was comfortable to the nose .
"Okay . "Gu Yue nodded lightly .
The yellow mecha took a step forward as fair flares shot out from the jet-burners on its back and under its feet . Under Tang Wulin's control, the mecha immediately leaped into the sky .
Civilian-use mechas are generally only allowed to fly below a thousand meters . In other words, they were only allowed to fly at a very low altitude . After Tang Wulin flew his mecha to an altitude of about eight hundred meters, the three pairs of flaps behind it were slowly deployed to maintain its suspension in midair . The thruster continued thrusting and the yellow mecha advanced towards Heaven Dou City .
There was an exclusive navigation system inside the cockpit which aided him in pointing out the directions . At the same time, it could also avoid any collisions with flying objects through the navigation system and radar .
When Tang Wulin's mecha took off, countless radars began scanning its proximity . His mecha would transmit signals through a series of codes in its Mecha Identification Card to ensure its own safety during flight . If anyone were to fly up to the sky without an identification card, especially in a place like Shrek City, the city's defensive soul cannons would attack it almost immediately . A mecha escort would also rush to the scene .
"Wow . It does feel better flying in the outside world . "Tang Wulin controlled his mecha with an excited expression .
Gu Yue looked at him and could not stop herself from smiling . She found it amusing when Tang Wulin began introducing his mecha to her . It was as if he wanted to show off . She never knew that this person had such a side to him . This must be the nature of a young man .
It was rare to see Tang Wulin this excited . He truly loved mechas!
The mecha continued flying at high speed, and it gradually entered cruising mode . It was indeed much faster than the soul cars on land . The scenery continuously shot past them underneath the mecha . His quick-flying yellow mecha in the sky also attracted a lot of attention .
During the flight, there was a slight tremor in the interior — mechas also shook when they encountered turbulent airflows . However, Tang Wulin's overall control of the mecha was rather stable .
"How's this? Isn't this cool?"Tang Wulin asked Gu Yue beside him .
Gu Yue smiled . "Why didn't you tell everyone that you bought a mecha?"
Tang Wulin chuckled . "It's my secret! If I told everyone, wouldn't that be the same as flaunting my wealth?"Of course it would! To an ordinary person, owning a private mecha was something extremely luxurious .
Gu Yue smiled . "Why did you tell me then? Aren't you worried that I'll feel like you're flaunting your wealth?"
"You're different,"Tang Wulin replied subconsciously . As he spoke, he took control of the mecha and flipped in midair before his mecha nimbly continued on its way .
Gu Yue was slightly shocked after hearing his answer, and the smile on her face grew grew wider .
Soaring in the sky was too exhilarating . Although Tang Wulin was able to flying practice during his training sessions, those were conducted in a confined space . This time, he was actually controlling the mecha and was flying in the outside world . It felt exhilarating .
No wonder . . . This was why most men dreamed of becoming a mecha master . The feeling was just too amazing .
A soul train needed two hours to travel from Shrek City to Heaven Dou City . Flying in a mecha, on the other hand, one could do the same in half the time . It was much faster and was naturally much faster than a soul car .
When the mecha entered Heaven Dou City's boundaries, it was not afternoon yet .
Tang Wulin brought Gu Yue straight to Heaven Dou Blacksmith's Association . He had contacted his uncle master before he came so there was a parking slot reserved for his mecha there .
After the docking system was successfully connected, the mecha descended from the sky . It landed firmly in the special parking space on the rooftop of the Heaven Dou Blacksmith's Association .
After the mecha safely landed, Tang Wulin sighed in relief . This was his first time flying a mecha long distance after all . A safe landing signified success!
The cockpit's hatch lifted and Tang Wulin disembarked from the mecha along with Gu Yue . He turned to look at his giant, ten-meter-tall mecha as pride welled up within him . He was now a mecha master
At this moment, an unseen force pulled Tang Wulin, causing him to look toward one direction .
Atop the rooftop of the Blacksmith Association's building, there was an area exclusively cordoned off for mechas to park . It was also where Tang Wulin's mecha was parked . There were also charging equipment available there to recharge the mechas with soul power .
Naturally, Tang Wulin's mecha was not the only mecha parked here . There were two purple mechas beside Tang Wulin's yellow mecha, and there was a black mecha on the other side of his mecha . The people who managed to obtain permission to park their mechas here were definitely not definitely not ordinary people .
However, it was during this very moment that Tang Wulin's gaze froze . In a faraway corner, a door of in enclosed parking space was slowly closing .
It was obviously a space used to park mechas but it seemed like it was chartered for a single mecha . When his gaze swept over to that area, the shutter was already halfway down but he had caught a glimpse of the lower torso of the mecha .
The bright red paint coating seemed to erupt like shocking thunder within Tang Wulin's mind .
'A r-re-red, red mecha?'
Red mechas were divine mechas that had to be personally crafted to completion . To craft it, top-grade materials, first-rate forging skills, along with the essence and martial soul of the person that had to perfectly fuse with the material were required . This would result in a creation that was in a sense, alive . It was an extension of the user's life and in certain cases, a true divine mecha might even result in a situation where the spirit soul and mecha would merge into one .
White mechas were known as basic mechas, yellow mechas were standard mechas, purple mechas were high-level mechas, and black mechas were super mechas!
However, all these mechas were available and were not out of the ordinary . However, one could count the number of red mechas that existed with the fingers on one's limbs .
Rumor had it that these red mechas had no upper limits to them . They could even stand toe-to-toe against three-word battle armor masters and could only be controlled by someone with a cultivation base beyond that of an eight-ringed Soul Douluo . However, the requirement to craft it was also higher, especially since crafting it was as difficult as crafting a three-word battle armor . However, although it had several advantages that were unavailable to battle armor, certain advantages possessed by battle armor were also unavailable to it .
Simply put, the statement saying that battle armor was superior to mechas did not apply when it came to red mechas .
Tang Wulin would have never thought that he would be able to see a red mecha here . Although he barely caught a glimpse of its passing beauty, that alone was enough to leave him in utter shock .
Since he saw it, Gu Yue naturally saw it as well .
"Is that the legendary red mecha?"Gu Yue asked softly .
Tang Wulin nodded with excitement . "It probably is . Come, let's go to where master-uncle is . He probably knows something about it . Later, I'll be learning from master-uncle for a bit . then I'll be conducting some business with my spirit alloys before I bring you somewhere . I think I can get this all done by sundown . In the evening, I'll go with you to do whatever you want . "
"Okay,"Gu Yue replied lightly .
Tang Wulin escorted Gu Yue into the elevator and went to the floor where Zhen Hua's office was on . Zhen Hua had given them a special elevator card . This floor could not be reached by the general public .
The elevator's doors slid open, and Tang Wulin excitedly walked out of it . Then, he stood outside Zhen Hua's office and knocked on the door lightly .
"I think the kid's here . Come in . "Zhen Hua's bright and clear voice came from within .
Tang Wulin pushed the door open and entered the office with Gu Yue .
Zhen Hua was waiting for him, but he was not alone in the office . There was another person aside from Zhen Hua in that office, and Tang Wulin knew this person .
"Uncle, it's you!"Tang Wulin said in surprise .
Was the middle-aged man currently seated on the sofa inside Zhen Hua's office not the one who prepared a meal for him when he first came here? He looked like he was in his fifties — hale and hearty .
However, this uncle of a chef was not wearing a chef's uniform today . Instead, he was wearing a regular retro grey long robe .
Although he looked ordinary, he was able to sit in the office of the only divine Blacksmith in the entire generation . Clearly, he was not an ordinary person .
