3m2u6 – Fury

Xie Xie’s Twin Dragon Storm collided explosively with the sword lights, a boom tearing through the air. In the end, he was sent crashing into the dormitory’s wall.

Killing intent filled the girl’s eyes as she pressed her attack.

Suddenly, golden light exploded in the area as if a miniature sun had descended. An arrogant chuckle was heard. “I didn’t think you would actually try to kill a student in the night. I’m really curious what excuses you have this time.”

As the radiant figure descended from the sky, his brilliance dispelled the murky darkness. A pair of pure-white wings unfurled to protect Xie Xie from the girl. It was Yue Zhengyu.

Something blazed in his eyes as he stared at the red-haired girl. “Let’s see if you can run away again this time.”

The girl shot a gold glare at him. “Screw off.” Despite how pleasant her voice was, the intensity of her killing intent was not diminished at all.

Yue Zhengyu snorted. “So you’ve finally revealed your true colors as an evil soul master! How could a Fallen Angel possibly be anything but evil? Today, I’ll judge you in place of the heavens!”

His second soul ring lit up and a sword brimming with holy light materialized in his hand. Contrasted with the violet-black sword in the girl’s hands that seemed the embodiment of darkness, the radiant golden sword in his hand seemed like a sacred sword created to banish evil.

The girl’s eyes were like a bottomless pit. “Do you really think I’m afraid of you?” Suddenly, a third purple soul ring appeared beneath her and her aura soared in intensity.

Yue Zhengyu went on high alert. He flapped his wings, absorbing the light element energy in the air.

He realized now that this girl likely had a soul skill that enabled her to conceal her true cultivation level. If it was daytime, he would have complete confidence in defeating her, but it was nighttime now, the domain of darkness-attribute soul masters. Moreover, her cultivation base was equal to his.

At that moment, three people arrived on scene. It was Tang Wulin, Gu Yue, and Xu Xiaoyan.

Tang Wulin instantly saw Xie Xie lying injured on the ground and rushed to his side.

“Are you alright?” Tang Wulin asked gravely.

Before Xie Xie could respond, Yue Zhengyu interjected, “Don’t you see? This Fallen Angel snuck into the Academy under the cover of night to attack us working students. Tang Wulin, what are you waiting for? Help me defeat her and bring her to the administration for judgement.”

When Tang Wulin saw blood trickling out of the corner of Xie Xie’s mouth, his expression turned grim. His friend had been injured! This was unforgivable.

He recognized who this red-haired girl was now. He marched over to Yue Zhengyu’s right side, while Gu Yue walked to the left side. Xu Xiaoyan stood protectively in front of Xie Xie, immediately releasing her martial soul.

Under the sea of twinkling stars, she called upon the power of her Starwheel Ice Staff!

Despite facing off against four working students alone, the red-haired girl didn’t show any fear as she pointed her sword at them. “I’m going to kill you!”

Her third soul ring lit up and darkness flooded out. Her figure flickered, and she shot forward like an arrow, charging straight at Xie Xie. As she flew forward, her wings took on a deep purple hue. Under the effects of her third soul skill, she melted into the wave of darkness.

“Sacred radiance!” Yue Zhengyu’s first soul ring lit up and holy light erupted from his body.

The holy light fought back against the encroaching darkness, revealing a the girl’s flickering figure within the darkness. Each flickering duplicate of her’s seemed ethereal, yet tangible at the same time. The sheer intensity of her aura was like a sharp spear piercing toward them. She recklessly charged straight for Xie Xie, not a single thought paid to her defense.

How deep is her grudge? She’s ignoring her safety just to get to Xie Xie!

As Yue Zhengyu’s third soul ring began to hum with light, he pointed his holy sword at the red-haired girl. “Light of Judgement!” A beam of light descended from the heavens.

Tang Wulin made his move as well. The girl’s killing intent toward Xie Xie fanned Tang Wulin’s fury. Golden scales rippled into existence along his right arm, and he charged forward with a punch.

As they were still on campus, Tang Wulin restrained himself a bit and didn’t bring out his golden dragon claw. Even so, before his tyrannical strength, even a chunk of metal would be smashed into bits.

In a flahs of silver, Gu Yue appeared at Xie Xie’s side and condensed an icicle in her hands. Xu Xiaoyan raised her staff into the air, summoning a starwheel beneath the red-haired girl.

It was Starwheel Shackles!

An instant after the starwheel appeared, shackles shot out of the ground and bound the red-haired girl. No matter how powerful she was, she could do nothing in the face of the absolute restraints for at least a second. This was Xu Xiaoyan’s terrifying ability.

Even Wu Zhangkong had been momentarily restrained by her Starwheel Shackles. Xu Xiaoyan was a terrifying opponent in the night.

Trapped by Starwheel Shackles, the red-haired girl couldn’t escape the falling Light of Judgement.

“Don’t hurt her!” Xie Xie croaked out.

Tang Wulin and Gu Yue stopped their attacks, but Light of Judgement continued to fall.

A boom tore through the air. The shockwave from the blast kicked up a cloud of dust and debris in a five meter radius, tossing Tang Wulin and the other three away from the blast zone.

The Holy Angel martial soul truly was formidable. While it might not be as powerful as Wu Siduo’s Hell White Tiger, it wasn’t far off! Moreover, Yue Zhengyu seemed like he still had some strength left.

Most importantly, he only had three soul rings!

The point of impact was now a charred crater.

“You!” Xie Xie screamed as he flung himself toward the crater.

Before he reached the edge, however, purple-black light flashed.

“Xie Xie, be careful!” Tang Wulin shouted. Xie Xie froze in spot as Tang Wulin reeled him back in with a strand of bluesilver grass.

This was Tang Wulin’s meticulousness. The moment he had arrived on scene, he had immediately wound strands of bluesilver grass around the waists of his comrades. It was preparation for times like this where he just saved Xie Xie’s life.

The purple-black light shot toward Xie Xie, but thankfully, Tang Wulin pulled him in before it could decapitate him. However, the attack only missed by a few inches, and a line of blood seeped out of Xie Xie’s skin.

“Xie Xie!” Tang Wulin immediately charged forward when he saw blood drawn. With a roar, he summoned his golden dragon claw. He didn’t bother holding back anymore. He unleashed his most powerful attack, Golden Dragon Dreadclaw, shooting dark-gold lines of light out.

She truly wanted to kill Xie Xie! Even when Xie Xie told his friends to hold back, she chose to launch a sneak attack! If Tang Wulin hadn’t pulled Xie Xie back, he would be dead now.

This wasn’t the spirit ascension platform, nor some illusory world. People die when they were killed in the real world.

As the blades of dark-gold light flew toward the red-haired girl in the figure, her body suddenly expanded, swelling with power and exploding with a tyrannical aura. The ground cracked under her power, the crater expanding to ten meters in radius while the glass windows of the dormitory shattered from the quaking.

Yue Zhangyu’s jaw dropped as he watched what happened. He had originally though Tang Wulin was just a new student who managed to get into Shrek Academy on the merit of his blacksmithing genius. However, he now understood that he was mistaken. Tang Wulin was far more powerful than he imagined! Even Yue Zhengyu, with his three soul rings, felt a chill run down his spine when Tang Wulin unleashed his Golden Dragon Dreadclaw.

Yet even so, the girl in the crater managed to defend against it.
