Chapter 537 - The Mighty Yuanen Yehui
Wu Rui threw up his arms to defend himself.
Darkness crashed into him. A boom rumbled through the arena. An instant later, he was sent flying backward, violet sparks arcing across his body. Even with his six pieces of battle armor equipped, he had barely survived Yuanen Yehui’s sword strike. Without his armor, he would’ve been cleaved in half right now.
How is she so strong? Wu Rui’s mind was in turmoil as he flew through the air. Before he could regain his poise, a mountain of pressure slammed into him.
Wu Rui crashed into the ground. When the dust settled, the spectators saw Yuanen Yehui on kneeling atop Wu Rui’s stomach, her sword pointed down ready to impale him. All that stopped her was his battle armor. But she could just as easily skewer his exposed head.
“The match is over!” Elder Cai declared.
Yuanen Yehui lifted off Wu Rui with a flap of her wings and smoothly glided backward ten meters.
Cheers erupted from the crowd, the beating of victory drums thundering. Among the crowd, the second grade was undoubtedly the loudest.
“She’s gotten even stronger,” Tang Wulin muttered. “If she was this strong during our two-on-two, it would have been a close match. Her true strength is actually her Fallen Angel soul, not her Titan Great Ape!”
Gu Yue looked at him from the side. “Generally, a person’s second martial soul is stronger than their first. It’s just that their progression will lag behind a bit. I never would have thought she would get a second spirit soul for her Fallen Angel so fast. She probably made a breakthrough in her spiritual power.”
Tang Wulin chuckled. “We better not slack off then! We can’t afford to fall behind the rest.”
Unknown to Tang Wulin, he was one of the direct causes for her rapid growth. Her pride didn’t allow her to lose to these talented juniors of hers, and so she spared no effort to grow stronger. In fact, her black soul ring was just recently acquired. With it, her might was incomparable with before.
“For the first duel, the first and second grade team win,” Elder Cai announced.
Wu Rui hadn’t suffered any serious injuries, but he was down in the dumps. Even with six pieces of battle armor, he had lost to his junior. He was utterly ashamed.
Song Lin furrowed her brow. The third grade had lost the first match and this was a hit to their pride!
As a teacher, she had to acknowledge that the match was won fairly. Yuanen Yehui was far stronger than she had expected. It was no wonder that the administration agreed to let the first and second grades challenge the third grade.
Looking purely at her capabilities, Yuanen Yehui was an absolute genius. She had twin martial souls and both had four rings. She even had a ten-thousand-year spirit soul. Such strength put her at the top of even the third grade. Li Qiankun and Mo Jue couldn’t match her in talent. Once she completed her battle armor in the future, she would be able to crush the third grade class. But fortunately for Song Lin, that was the future. Yuanen Yehui was not yet a battle armor master.
Narrowing her eyes, Song Ling glanced at Ye Wu. “Go up for the second round.”
She didn’t bother to caution them or advise them further. These kids had been under her tutelage for seven years now and they shared a mutual understanding between each other.
Excitement burned in Ye Wu’s eyes. As he walked over to the arena, he slapped Wu Rui on the shoulder and said, “Don’t worry you blabbermouth. I’ll avenge you.”
Wu Rui’s cheeks twitched. “I hope you face someone even stronger.”
He still couldn’t accept his defeat. He had been suppressed by the might of Yuanen Yehui’s ten-thousand-year soul ring. If not for that, his soul skills would have worked as they normally did and he wouldn’t have lost. But even so, he was confident of his strength with his six pieces of battle armor. He had no choice but to acknowledge the gap in talent between him and Yuanen Yehui.
On the other side of the arena, Wu Zhangkong looked between Wu Siduo and Ye Xinglan.
Wu Siduo took a step forward. “Teacher Wu, please let me handle the second match.”
After a moment of thought, he nodded. “Alright. You can go up. Don’t do anything risky.”
“Yes!” Wu Siduo answered, and without another word, she leaped into the arena.
Ye Wu stood on the opposite end of the arena waiting. Then Wu Siduo appeared before him. He was stunned by her womanly charms. Despite being only fourteen years old, she looked just as mature as him.
“Hello, Junior Sister. I’m Ye Wu of the third grade,” he said, beaming. There wasn’t a single trace of he previous battlelust he showed Wu Rui.
“Wu Siduo of the first grade,” she answered.
A flash of astonishment colored Ye Wu’s face. He had heard of her before. She was one of the top ten rankers on the Genius Youths Ranking. She was the possessor of twin martial souls and a self-soul fusion skill. Her talent was obvious for anyone who heard of this. Although her souls themselves couldn’t compare with Yuanen Yehui’s, her self-soul fusion skill was a powerful trump card. Furthermore, she already had four soul rings.
These first graders are terrifying! Given a few more years, she’ll probably break rank fifty! Maybe even as soon as when she reaches the second grade. As expected of one of the representatives of the strongest incoming class of the century! Ye Wu steeled himself, not daring to underestimate his opponent.
“Begin!” Elder Cai shouted.
Both sides immediately burst into action, fast as lightning.
Ye Wu charged forward, his entire body igniting. A blast of flame shot out behind him, further accelerating him to mach speeds!
In the stands, the first and second grade students had their hearts jump to their throats, especially the agility-types. They had never witnessed such speed before.
Ye Wu moved so fast that he was a streak of fire to the untrained eye! A blink and he reached Wu Siduo!
While Wu Siduo was also quick with her Hell Civet, she had only closed a third of the original distance between them when Ye Wu reached her. Her eyes went wide. What kind of speed is that? She suppressed her shock and used her first soul skill, Hell Rush!
In an instant, she used the sudden acceleration of her skill to adjust her trajectory to slant to the side. A ball of flame flitted past her. Ye Wu and her and just narrowly missed each other.
An instant later, Ye Wu was on the opposite end of the arena. As he approached the barrier, he made a large arc back around to charge Wu Siduo once more.
“He’s fast, but he doesn’t have much control,” Tang Wulin said.
“He might be lacking control precisely because of his speed. He’s moving too fast for himself to react.” Xie Xie chimed in, offering the expertise of an agility-type. In fact, he himself had been shocked by Ye Wu’s speed. Ye Wu’s velocity in a straight line was even too fast for the eye to follow. However, it was clear that this shocking speed came at the cost of control.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
