Chapter 515 - Rematch Against Yuanen Yehui
Since when was Xie Xie this strong? And Xu Xiaoyan’s control skills too! She completely countered Duan Hunxiao! Ye Xingmo didn’t even stand a chance in the end!
Without executing any spectacular combos, Xie Xie and Xu Xiaoyan bashed their way to an overwhelming victory..
When the spectating first grade students finally snapped out of their stupor, they exploded into applause. Only five were silent: the rankers.
“Can you beat him one-on-one?” Luo Guixing asked, glancing at Xu Yucheng.
“I don’t know,” Xu Yucheng said, his usual arrogance blunted.
Yuanen Yehui stood dumbstruck among the second grade students. The burning gaze Xie Xie had sent her way before taking down Duan Hunxiao and Ye Xingmo still burned vividly in her mind, scorched on like a brand. Words weren’t needed to convey his intention. Am I still not good enough for you?
She couldn’t deny his growth. His strength. Xie Xie had maintained control of the battle’s tempo and displayed a deeper understanding of his martial souls than before. He was incomparable to his past self.
With Tang Wulin shining as bright as the sun, Xie Xie and Xu Xiaoyan had been hidden in his shadow. But that did not mean they were weak. They stood as equals with the rest of the team, each one of them excellent talents.
When did Xu Xiaoyan get this strong? Yuanen Yehui had never seen Xu Xiaoyan use Starlight Reflection before. No wonder Tang Wulin was so confident! They’re stronger than I ever expected.
The students of the second grade sported pale faces. The match had finished all too quickly, not even a full minute in length. Duan Hunxiao didn’t even have a chance to use a soul skill. It was an absolute thrashing! Utterly shameful for them. Despite their posturing, they were the losers.
The second match pitted Tang Wulin and Gu Yue against Yuanen Yehui and Yue Zhengyu. They ascended the stage after the previous combatants exited. The stands fell into silence once more, everyone watching with bated breath. If the previous match was a contest between the average talent in either grade, then this was a match between the peaks!
Yue Zhengyu beamed as he met Tang Wulin’s eyes. “Wulin, there’s a little something I wanted to talk with you about. Why don’t you chill it with the soul fusion skills today? That would be too unfair. It’ll also weaken you, so if you use it how will you participate in next week’s competition?”
“Alright. We won’t,” Tang Wulin answered, leaving Yue Zhengyu in momentary disbelief. This wasn’t the Tang Wulin he knew. He had expected Tang Wulin to keep the soul fusion skill as an ace up the sleeve, a show of might.
“That’s a promise, alright?” Yue Zhengyu prodded.
Tang Wulin smirked. “If you’re scared, you should just surrender already.”
Yue Zhengyu raised a brow. “You two only got three rings each, while we got four. What do we have to be afraid of? Well, we’ll see what you got.”
“Enough trash talking!” Elder Cai barked. “Begin!”
Both teams immediately summoned their martial souls. Purple soul rings appeared around Yuanen Yehui and Yue Zhengyu, four each. They basked the two in their regal glow. On the other side, four purple soul rings rose around Gu Yue, and three around Tang Wulin.
Yuanen Yehui unleashed a roar as her body rapidly swelled with strength. She used her third soul skill: Diamond Titan!
Off-stage, Xie Xie covered his face with his hands. Damn it! Why’s she so damn violent?
Tang Wulin rushed forward, each powerful step leaving cracks in the ground. He forewent his bluesilver grass for his Golden Dragon King abilities. Two golden soul rings appeared around him, the first lighting up. Empowered by Golden Dragon Body, Tang Wulin felt his muscles ripple with strength, his scaled gaining more toughness and durability.
Yuanen Yehui and Tang Wulin were long since familiar with each other’s abilities and tendencies. As Tang Wulin slashed at her with his claw, Yuanen Yehui punched back a shockwave with Air Cannon.
At the same time, Yue Zhengyu spread his holy wings wide and unleashed two beams of holy light Tang Wulin.
In terms of soul power and rings, Yuanen Yehui and Yue Zhengyu undoubtedly held the advantage. They were certain to have improved their teamwork after a year of training together as well. On the other hand, Gu Yue’s full potential relied on Tang Wulin acting as a shield to buy her time. She was the greatest talent in their team, hidden by Tang Wulin’s brilliance.
In a flash of silver, Tang Wulin disappeared. Yuanen Yehui and Yue Zhengyu’s attacks tore through nothing but air. Raising their heads, they caught glimpse of Gu Yue’s fourth soul ring shining brightly. She’s already using her fourth soul skill?
Amidst everyone’s astonishment, a seven-colored light spread from her hands, manifesting into a staff. It shone silver, crowned with a lustrous seven-colored gem within which tendrils of light danced. The elements in the arena roared upon its appearance.
Her fourth soul skill: Elemental Staff.
Gu Yue gripped the staff tight and raised it. The gem bled green, summoning a tornado to obstruct her opponents’ advance.
But Yuanen Yehui pushed on, unleashing a second blast of Air Cannon.
With a wave of her staff, Gu Yue vanquished the attack. Yuanen Yehui felt her connection to the blast dissolve, the air and its momentum breaking down into nothingness.
Then the gem on the staff shone gold. Gu Yue conducted it toward Yue Zhengyu. In a snap, he felt the light element within him rapidly escape, seduced to Gu Yue’s side.
God damn! Just what sort of ability is that?
Tang Wulin held his position, merely standing in front of Gu Yue as her guardian. He was just as shocked as the others. It was his first time seeing her use her fourth soul skill as well. From what he surmised, the Elemental Staff further boosted her control over the elements to the extent where she could steal control of elements within someone else.
Enduring the relentless assault of the tornado, Yuanen Yehui let out a snarl as she charged through.
Yue Zhengyu followed right behind her, taking advantage of her powerful body as a shield. The holy glow around him was subdued as he exerted his control over the light elements within him.
Tang Wulin watched with an expectant glint to his eyes. The dragon within him roared, demanding battle. Raising his hands, he unleashed a giant golden phantom dragon! Golden Dragon Shocks the Heavens!
Yuanen Yehui’s fourth soul ring lit up and her body shrunk slightly. But her aura exploded with might. It was the assault of the Devil Titan!
This was the first clash between Tang Wulin and Yuanen Yehui since their battle between their grades!
A boom rippled through the arena as the phantom dragon and Devil Titan collided.
During the last time, Tang Wulin had been no match for Yuanen Yehui’s strength. But now, he only stumbled a few steps backward instead of being hurled through the air.
And the impact sent Yuanen Yehui tumbling to the ground instead. At that moment, a blue fireball arced around her, shooting toward Yue Zhengyu.
With a slash of his holy sword, Yue Zhengyu cleaved the fireball in two. But the flames spread out afterward, leaving him no choice but to retreat from the area. He was now separated from Yuanen Yehui.
From the very beginning, the battle between the champions of the first and second grades had been white-hot. Yet the climax had yet been reached.
Yuanen Yehui leaped into the air, her body rapidly shrinking as she switched to her Fallen Angel martial soul. Jet-black wings unfurled from her back and darkness descended as she summoned the Curtain of Darkness.
Why is she using her Fallen Angel martial soul? Light and darkness are opposites! Are they not afraid of the danger? Or do they have some sort of combo attack? As his mind worked in overdrive, Tang Wulin stood on alert, ready to face whatever they prepared. They couldn’t possibly gamble in such a high-stakes game for no apparent reason.
Upon using Bluesilver Golden Array, Tang Wulin saw his golden rings fade, replaced by shining purple soul rings. A large golden circle of light shone beneath him, so large that it covered the ground upon which Gu Yue stood. Wherever the golden light touched, the darkness fled!
