Shang Yue, who had reached her waiting area, opened her eyes wide and cursed, “Bastard!” At this time, she was furious! The attack power of the six-barreled miniature soul cannon was even higher than that of her dual blades. In particular when all the attacks were hitting the target like in this situation. However, even under this barrage, Xu Sanshi didn’t budge. Therefore, when he was running away from her before, it was just bait.

What incredible defensive power!

Situ Yu’s pupils shrank, and he felt a great pressure weighing down on him. They were both cultivators with four soul rings, and with his soul tool fortress, he should have a distinct advantage while fighting on the platform. According to logic, a soul master specialized in defense should have been completely suppressed, quickly losing the match. But even with this crazy barrage, he wasn’t able to make Xu Sanshi retreat.

Of course, Situ Yu’s skills weren’t limited to this. Three thick metal pipes came out of his shoulders. These pipes quickly adjusted their position thanks to his muscles. Next, white balls of the size of a fist soared toward the sky with a ‘puff’ sound. These balls were moving slowly, and were very concentrated. They assumed a parabolic trajectory, aiming at Xu Sanshi, who was hiding behind the shield.

One couldn’t attack for too long when simultaneously using two powerful soul tools. Sooner or later, even Situ Yu would have to stop. Xu Sanshi took advantage of his pause and stood up.

At this moment, he couldn’t rely on Huo Yuhao’s Spiritual Detection. Therefore, he took action when he felt that no attacks were hitting the shield.

He dashed forward as soon as he stood up, and his second soul ring also lit up.

If those six white balls in the air kept following their original trajectory, they would have never hit Xu Sanshi. However, it seemed that they had locked onto their target. Even if Xu Sanshi was now leaving them behind, they changed their trajectory and started to pursue him. But Xu Sanshi, who was rushing forward, didn’t seem to have realized anything.

I won!

Whenever Situ Yu would encounter this situation, he had always obtained victory. All the metal pipes forming the soul tool fortress suddenly lit up. His entire body was so brightly lit up that it seemed to be engulfed in white flames. Dozens of white lights exploded and shot toward Xu Sanshi.

At this time in the waiting area, Bei Bei suddenly said to Huo Yuhao in a low voice, “Look carefully.”

His voice had yet to fade when something unexpected happened on the platform.

Facing this simultaneous attack from the front and rear, Xu Sanshi seemed to be at a dead end. If he were to use his shield to block the attack from the front, he wouldn’t be able to manage the attack from behind properly. The strength of the white balls could be easily deduced by how concentrated they were.

What could one do in this situation?

Xu Sanshi gave the answer.

He doubled his speed in an instant. The spectators only saw a flash, and his body disappeared. He left behind dozens of afterimages, and two-thirds of the light beams and artillery shells coming from the front missed. In addition, four of the white balls behind were destroyed by the attack he had just dodged.

That wasn’t all. The Shield of the Xuanwu Turtle ‘broke’ and changed into a lot of small shields the size of a palm, scattering in all directions. Then, every shield accurately protected him from the attacks he couldn’t dodge. The two white balls at the rear were no exception.

Thunderous explosions were echoing on the platform, and yet, not a single attack hit his body. With this sudden acceleration, Xu Sanshi had dodged the heavy fire and arrived in front of Situ Yu.

Situ Yu was very surprised. How could a defense-type soul master move so fast? But he was still Cloud Luo Academy’s captain; even if he was surprised, he didn’t forget to attack with his soul tool fortress.

That Rank 4 concentrated soul cannon lit up. He hadn’t used it before due to its excessive consumption of soul power. But at this time, it hardly mattered. He mustered all the soul power in his body, which was amplified by the martial soul behind his back, and poured it inside the concentrated soul cannon.

Everyone could see the mouth of the cannon starting to light up. The white light coming out of the cannon suddenly turned dark a little later. At the same time, the air on the platform started to become restless.

Situ Yu had a frenzied expression on his face. At last, he attacked.

If one could see Xu Sanshi’s expression from close up, they would notice that his carefree expression had disappeared. Right now, a cold light was flashing through his eyes.

All the scattered small shields reunited once again into the Shield of the Xuanwu Turtle. Then, when the Rank 4 concentrated soul cannon fired, he took a step toward the left with his left foot.

This single step changed everything. The concentrated soul cannon could lock down the enemy, but with this move, Xu Sanshi wouldn’t take the hit head-on, but from a slanted angle. At the same time, the Shield of the Xuanwu Turtle released a black light, changing into a shining mirror.

The terrifying attack of the concentrated soul cannon hit the shield. However, it was only able to hit it at an angle. This caused the blazing white light to be refracted toward the protective barrier above the platform.

Xu Sanshi’s feet were like two huge boulders; he stood firmly in place. But he wasn’t done yet. After reflecting the attack, he pounced forward like a lion and ruthlessly smashed into Situ Yu’s soul tool fortress from the side.

With a thunderous boom, Situ Yu, who was not far from the edge of the ring, was sent flying. That base he had dug into the earth was also uprooted. Situ Yu slammed against the light screen of the protective barrier and fell to the ground.

After using the soul tool fortress, Situ Yu’s weight had surpassed 250kg. But when Xu Sanshi hit him, he was immediately sent flying without the slightest resistance.

It was truly a beautiful collision, a showdown of pure brute force.

Xu Sanshi, who was standing at the edge of the platform, had that carefree smile on his face once again. He looked at Cloud Luo Academy’s waiting area and said to the dumbfounded Ma Yingjun, “I didn’t trick you. I went easy on you.”

“Yes, yes.” Ma Yingjun nodded again and again. There was nothing else he could say anyway.

Xiao Xiao said in a low voice, “Senior Xu was actually this strong.”

Till now, Xu Sanshi hadn’t left a deep impression on the other members. After all, he was a defense-type soul master. You wouldn’t expect him to have any explosive or powerful skills, and most of the time he was busy bothering Jiang Nannan. Only today, after he defeated three opponents in a row, was everyone able to see his real power.

He defeated a Class 4 soul engineer while being a Soul Ancestor with four soul rings. This alone was enough to make his strength clear. Not to mention that he had easily defeated three opponents in a row.

Bei Bei smiled faintly and said, “Since he always acts shamefully, you guys must have forgotten that when you entered the academy, he was already in the sixth year. If you think about it, he should have already entered the inner courtyard by now. However, he was so dead set on Nannan that he lowered his grades on purpose. I remember that his teachers were so angry that they almost spat blood. Moreover, he is the most talented defense-type soul master I’ve ever seen. You would surely pay the price for looking down on him. Amongst us seven, he is the first when it comes to cultivation level. After all, you can’t measure the strength of Shrek Academy’s students with the number of soul rings alone, right?”

Bei Bei was speaking the truth. You couldn’t properly measure the strength of the students of Shrek Academy just by looking at the number of soul rings.

Xu Sanshi had entered the academy when he was very young, and when he was fifteen, he could have graduated from the outer courtyard and taken the test to enter the inner courtyard. One could imagine how high his cultivation was. How could someone that was hailed as the number one genius of the outer courtyard together with Bei Bei be so simple? When making a proper evaluation, you had to take natural talent, strength, fighting capacity, and other various aspects into consideration.

Xu Sanshi’s Mysterious Underworld Turtle’s martial soul was one of the strongest defense-type martial souls in this generation. This martial soul allowed the owner to possess an eternal and everlasting defense. In all these years, Bei Bei had never heard of any fellow student being able to break through Xu Sanshi’s defense.

“Brother, you should keep your word.” Xu Sanshi to said Situ Yu. Situ Yu had fallen from the platform, and was getting up with great difficulty.

What Situ Yu feared the most was exactly a hit like this. The soul tool fortress covered his whole body, and many soul tools had been damaged after the fall. He too had received quite the shock; he was bleeding from both nose and mouth. With the help of his teammates, he was finally able to get out of the mountain of soul tools.

He raised his head and looked carefully at Xu Sanshi. Then, he nodded and said, “I lost, and I’m sincerely convinced. Our Cloud Luo Academy admits defeat.”

Xu Sanshi laughed heartily, “You actually kept your word. You’re a real man. Your offensive power is not half bad. However, I advise you to join the army. You won’t be able to achieve much with this technique in 1v1 matches.”

As soon as he finished speaking, he looked at his own waiting area and held his hands high.

Shrek Academy had obtained victory in this first match. And this time, they had also used only one person. However, the situation was a bit different from last time. This time, they had sent a defense-type soul master with four soul rings.

This soul master had single-handedly defeated a soul engineering academy. Even if he had only faced three opponents, anyone could tell they were Cloud Luo Academy’s strongest students. The remaining team members were merely Soul Elders with three soul rings; they simply had no way of achieving victory.
