Chapter 638 - Excellent Teamwork
Yue Zhengyu’s wings gave off resplendent light as he emanated a mighty aura weighing down on Lei Xing and Lei Tian, further slowing their axes down. Then he quickly took advantage of the opening he had just created, sliding under the axes, speeding past the Lei brothers through the space between them, and bringing his holy sword up towards Lei Tian.
He didn’t meet their attack head-on like Tang Wulin would have done, but used his agility.
“Tang Sect secret art: Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track!” Fang’er blurted out. She sure had keen eyes.
The audience couldn’t believe their ears; they had never expected Yue Zhengyu to be a disciple of the famous Tang Sect.
As Yue Zhengyu was charging through the Lei brothers, he stretched his wings, struck their shoulders, and retracted them immediately. The holy light over his wings crashed against the Lei brothers’ lightning armor, creating an impact not strong, but strong enough to cause the Lei brothers to stagger back a step.
A golden ring had appeared on the ground when Yue Zhengyu started performing his stunts, but the Lei brothers were too preoccupied with Yue Zhengyu to notice it. Even if Yue Zhengyu weren’t keeping them busy, it still wouldn’t be easy for them to notice it, because it was lying behind Lei Xing. Now the impact had forced Lei Xing to step right into the golden ring.
All of a sudden, golden chains shot out of the ground and bound Lei Xing up like a golden mummy.
Fang’er turned her head to look at Xu Xiaoyan and found her standing far away from the other three and holding a radiant staff. That golden chain is obviously her soul skill, and she timed it just right for it to capture Lei Xing when he was thrown off balance.
Lei Xing realized to his shock that no matter how hard he fought against the chains, he couldn’t break them. His lightning armor and battle armor were doing him little good, and his struggles had proved to be a waste of energy.
Seeing that Yue Zhengyu’s holy sword was about to catch him, Lei Tian swung his Lightning Axe at it while staggering back, in an attempt to block it. At the same time, he looked behind him to make sure he wouldn’t step into a trap like his big brother had done.
Even a small mistake could cost one the match if one’s opponent was just as strong. Lei Tian was not in Yue Zhengyu’s league, so he couldn’t afford to make the smallest mistake. However, he made one, and a big one at that.
When Lei Tian’s Lightning Axe met with Yue Zhengyu’s holy sword, the sword vanished, and his blow struck nothing but air. But the holy sword appeared again an instant later and bit through his lightning armor beneath his arm – where there was no battle armor – before he could bring his axe back to block the attack.
It was one of Yue Zhengyu’s little fighting tricks. He could make his weapon appear and disappear at will. Of course, this trick would consume his soul power, but the benefit was worth it more often than not.
Lei Tian had made a mistake, and now he was paying the price for it. As Yue Zhengyu’s holy sword bit into his flesh, he felt some kind of energy getting inside him, making him let out a groan of pain. The lightning armor over him disappeared, flames of golden light shrouding his body.
Yue Zhengyu’s wings flapped seven times in a split second, generating gusts of wind to feed the flames and lift Lei Tian off the ground. The last time he beat his wings, the gale blew Lei Tian up into the air.
Yue Zhengyu had whispered to Xu Xiaoyan that they should keep the match simple and quick, in case the twins had a soul fusion skill.
After taking care of Lei Tian, Yue Zhengyu flew towards Lei Xing, his third soul ring shining brilliantly, a beam of holy light fusing with his sword.
Lei Xing was still being bound by the golden chains, but even if he weren’t, Yue Zhengyu’s incredibly powerful aura was enough to render him motionless. He thrust the point of his holy sword into Lei Xing’s pauldron. He could have pierced his left shoulder much more easily, since it was not protected by the battle armor, but he had chosen not to.
“The match is finished!” the referee called out urgently. He was entrusted with the responsibility to end a match before anyone got seriously injured or killed.
The holy sword slid out of Lei Xing’s shoulder, and with it a beam of golden light. Lei Xing fell down onto the ground, badly burnt. If not for his battle armor, he might have been killed.
Yue Zhengyu’s wings and sword disappeared. He made a victory sign with his fingers and waved at Xu Xiaoyan.
Xu Xiaoyan’s lips curved in a smile.
The Shrek Academy cruised to victory again.
“The Lei brothers might have had a chance to win,” Fang’er said, “if they had focused on attacking – which they are pretty good at – rather than defending. Yue Zhengyu is strong and has great battle skills; on top of that, his martial soul is much stronger than the Lighting Axe. As for his partner, she is clearly a powerful control-type soul master. She only used one soul skill, but it proved to be enough to bring this battle to an end.”
Tang Wulin smiled. Zhengyu has grown stronger.
All of them were growing stronger fast; they were each other’s strength and motivation.
Yue Zhengyu stepped over to Xu Xiaoyan and gave her a high five. They exchanged a smile and walked off the stage.
Everyone watching this match had the same thoughts in their minds. The Shrek Academy is so strong! Their matches so far were totally one-sided. They dominated their opponents and beat the hell out of them.
“Boss!” a student of the Monster Academy said to Long Yue with a grave look on his face.
Long laughed and motioned him to calm down. “The higher they stand, the further they’ll fall. I can’t wait to find out how strong they are. They are interesting rivals; this tournament would have been dull without them, don’t you think?”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
