“Beautiful!” As Xu Sanshi looked at the military-looking girl in front of him, his eyes immediately lit up.

From his outward appearance, Xu Sanshi didn’t look too bad. He had a square face, and a normal-shaped nose and mouth. Although he wasn’t as elegant and scholarly as Bei Bei, he could be considered good-looking. However, his attitude was completely different from his looks.

Shang Yue, who stood opposite him, was a 1.7 meter-tall lady who looked about eighteen or nineteen. Although she wasn’t a peerless beauty, she had an extremely slender figure. This was especially so for her long pair of legs, which stood out.

Her form-fitting robes were able to display her exceptionally beautiful figure.

A pervert like Xu Sanshi would start looking at the lady in front of him from bottom to top. Thus, he first saw her slender, round thighs. As he continued looking up, his pupils instantly widened when he saw her perky chest. He mouth widened slightly, and it seemed as though he were about to start drooling.

Fortunately, he knew that Jiang Nannan was still looking at him. Thus, his perverted glance vanished, and he forcefully swallowed the saliva at the side of his mouth.

Chang Yue wasn’t much older than Xu Sanshi, and she had a boyfriend.

She clearly saw Xu Sanshi’s ‘performance’, and immediately raised her eyebrows as a result. “What are you looking at?”

Xu Sanshi almost subconsciously replied, “Steamed buns.”

“You…” Chang Yue flew into a rage, then shot straight towards him.

Possibly due to the fact that the referee couldn’t bear to continue watching a certain person’s vulgar display, he immediately shouted ‘start’ before retreating backwards.

Chang Yue’s fighting style was completely different from Ma Yingjun’s. She carried a pair of long blades on her back, and she began to unsheathe them as her body shot forward. With one blade in each hand, the two four foot-long blades immediately lit up with a blazing white light. After that, two three foot-long beams of blade-light shot straight toward Xu Sanshi.

Wang Yan, who sat below the stage, blurted out, “A close-combat soul tool. Pay attention to it. Most of the time, soul engineers who use close-combat soul tools are extremely good at close-combat. Their soul skills might be somewhat weak, but their close-combat fighting abilities are relatively strong. The best way to deal with them is to not approach them. Otherwise, you’ll have a big problem on your hands.”

Huo Yuhao fixed his gaze on Chang Yue’s close-combat soul tool. He also had one of his own, and it was even the only remnant he had of his mother–the White Tiger’s Dagger.

When he had fought against the Wind Baboon, it was precisely because of the White Tiger Dagger’s special effect that he was able to escape being killed by the first soul beast he ever met in his life.

“Clang, clang–”

Onstage, Chang Yue’s long blades viciously struck Xu Sanshi’s Shield of the Xuanwu Turtle, causing white sparks to flicker about. At this moment, Chang Yue’s soul rings were now on display. Just like Ma Yingjun, she had three yellow and one purple ring. Furthermore, her martial soul was somewhat strange. The main changes to her body were reflected on her head, causing her originally golden hair to turn gray. At the same time, she had grown much taller, and her muscles were now bulging. Her eyes had also turned a crystalline yellow. Her lips were jutting out slightly, revealing what seemed to be canine teeth.

A dog-type martial soul? Furthermore, this seemed to be a very strong one.

A martial soul like this was relatively decent, and it strengthened its user by a large amount. Combined with Chang Yue’s ability as a close-combat soul engineer, it could be said to be complementing her very well. The only flaw of a martial soul like this was that her aesthetics would be ruined after its activation.

Thus, Xu Sanshi evilly cried out a phrase as he blocked Chang Yue’s attack with his shield, “Ghost!”

His cry immediately made the seething Chang Yue launch a storm of blade attacks towards him as she slashed madly at him. Although Xu Sanshi talked a lot of shit, he seemed like an airbag at this moment. Only, he unceasingly adjusted the position of his Shield of the Xuanwu Turtle as he cowered behind his shield, making it seem as though he had no intentions of attacking.

The violent booms coming from the stage and the scene of Xu Sanshi being completely trashed once again caused an uproar and a general sense of puzzlement among the spectators. From their point of view, Huo Yuhao and Xu Sanshi were from the same academy. But if that was so, why would there be such a large gap between them?

The activation of a soul tool drained quite a bit of soul power. Furthermore, the drain in soul power would increase along with the might of a close-combat soul tool. Chang Yue’s pair of blades were a Class 3 close-combat soul tool, and they were relatively extraordinary in terms of strength. As she relentlessly poured down powerful blows with no regard for soul power, Xu Sanshi was gradually sent retreating step by step.

However, even if she had a powerful cultivation, there still came a time when she ran out of energy. After a flurry of blows, she began to feel the overexhaustion of the soul power in her body. On the other hand, although Xu Sanshi was continuously retreating, he was still ten or so meters away from the edge of the stage.

It wasn’t as if Chang Yue had never attempted to find a flaw in Xu Sanshi’s defense. However, the latter’s use of the Shield of the Xuanwu Turtle was extremely clever. Regardless of how she tried to attack him, he would always be able to block it in time. More importantly, if she tried to attack him from another direction, the retreating Xu Sanshi would instead steady his footsteps and retreat in another direction. This way, Chang Yue subconsciously chose to attack him in a frontal manner.

Due to the overexhaustion of her soul power, Chang Yue’s blades began to slow down.

At this moment, the corner of Xu Sanshi’s mouth curled into a smile, “Ah, ah… I can’t hold it anymore. Quick, be more forceful, be more forceful.”

“Bastard!” Chang Yue’s large eyes went round, and she fiercely took a deep breath. She forcefully gathered the soul power in her body, intensifying the power of the blades in her hands as she once again forced Xu Sanshi to retreat backwards.

Ten meters, nine meters, eight meters… five meters, three meters, one meter… Finally, under Chang Yue’s untiring hard work, Xu Sanshi was finally forced to the edge of the stage. Presently, he would fall down if he took another step backwards.

Chang Yue’s four soul rings had continuously flickered alternately during her previous attack, but she hadn’t seemed to use any soul power on the surface. This was a unique characteristic of a soul engineer. When she was choosing her soul rings, Chang Yue had chosen ones that would increase her strength and speed. This was to make up for the deficiencies in her martial soul. This way, her combined fighting power after using a soul tool would be much greater than what it would’ve been if she’d remained a simple soul master.

Just as she was about to succeed and win the fight, her last two soul rings lit up simultaneously. Her twin blades that had previously emitted a white light now had a faint, green luster to them, and the strong undulations of soul power caused even the surrounding air to distort. Her blades flashed, and she gave an all-out slash towards Xu Sanshi.

She won!

Just as Chang Yue launched her two blades, every single student from Cloud Luo Academy, including her, thought this exact phrase.

They all knew her attack power; if she were to launch an all-out attack, even a Soul King-ranked expert wouldn’t be able to take a direct blow from her, let alone Xu Sanshi, who had no path of retreat.

However, just as these thoughts of victory popped into their minds, they instantly transformed into astonishment.

Just before Chang Yue’s blades slashed into the Shield of the Xuanwu Turtle, Xu Sanshi’s body suddenly flickered to the side. At the same time, he slanted the angle of his shield, causing Chang Yue’s twin blades to practically slide across the surface of the shield.

It was true that Xu Sanshi had been forced to the corner of the arena, but similarly, Chang Yue herself had reached the corner as well! As she rushed at thin air, the momentum carrying her immediately caused her to fly off the stage!

Her greatest mistake was falling for Xu Sanshi’s plan. After being angered by him, her decision-making skills had clearly been affected. Combined with the string of attacks that had given her the absolute advantage in their battle, she’d forgotten the most important thing. That was, although Xu Sanshi was a defense-type soul master, he wouldn’t just block everything; he could dodge an attack as well!

Xu Sanshi hadn’t dodged any of her attacks when she’d gone on the offensive, but he suddenly changed his movements at this crucial moment. Chang Yue simply couldn’t react in time.

When she passed Xu Sanshi, Chang Yue immediately came to her senses. However, it was already too late for her to stabilise herself by stabbing her blades into the ground.

Xu Sanshi nimbly turned the Shield of the Xuanwu Turtle in his hand around, then lightly smacked its surface on Chang Yue’s protruding buttocks. A crisp ‘pa’ rang out. Combined with the momentum that Chang Yue had when she charged forward, this was the last straw that broke the camel’s back. Chang Yue immediately fell off the stage and rolled down.

This was already the second match in a row where a dramatic change had occurred. From the very start, Xu Sanshi had taken a beating from Chang Yue. It seemed as though he would have collapsed at any moment, but he was still able to turn defeat into victory. Was this really just a fluke?

After falling off the stage, Chang Yue had an ashen look on her face. However, she was still somewhat drained after using all of her strength earlier.

On the stage, Xu Sanshi kept an innocent look on his face as he looked at her. He shrugged his shoulders and said, “Can’t blame me. It’s just that you were too bouncy, and you got yourself bounced off. A mistake, this was definitely a mistake.” As he spoke, his gaze was still fixated on Chang Yue’s protruding buttocks. Worse, after he glanced at Chang Yue, his gaze turned towards Jiang Nannan, who was seated within the resting area.

Jiang Nannan’s expression turned cold, and she retrieved a pair of scissors from some unknown place. Then, she took a very long fruit from the table in front of her.

Xu Sanshi only felt a certain area of his body tighten up, and he instantly turned around. He now had a righteous look on his face as he said to the referee, “I’ve won. Let’s have the next match.”

The referee’s gaze towards him began to turn strange. He’d never seen such a strange competition in his life.

At this moment, the leader of Cloud Luo Advanced Soul Engineering Academy’s team took the stage. He took large strides towards Xu Sanshi.

From the viewpoint of the spectators, this leader should’ve been angry and lashed out at Xu Sanshi due to his previous actions. However, the fact that he didn’t astonished the referee somewhat.

Although he had a chilly and stern expression on his face as he faced Xu Sanshi, he didn’t fly into a rage. Instead, he bowed slightly in Xu Sanshi’s direction, “Cloud Luo Advanced Soul Engineering Academy, Situ Yu.”

Xu Sanshi seemed to have felt something as well. The relaxed look on his face vanished slightly, “Shrek, Xu Sanshi.”
