Chapter 652 - Sima Xian
The Monster Academy team was surprised. They knew the name and the history between SIma Xian and Long Yue.
There were few times when Long Yue felt embarrassed. As he felt his teammates’ eyes on him, it struck him that this was one of them.
Sima Xian was on his way to school. He was happy, because he had gotten admitted to the most prestigious school on the Star Luo Continent.
When he arrived at the gate of the Monster Academy, a bald man came up to him.
“You got any money on you?” the man asked, raising a hand to stop him.
“Who are you?”
“I’ll tell you who I am after you give me your money,” the bald man said. “These are some fancy clothes you got on. You must be a rich kid.”
Sima Xian snorted. “You don’t know who you’re messing with. If I weren’t in a hurry, I’d knock your teeth out. Now beat it and don’t let me see your ugly face around here again.”
“You sure are cocky, aren’t you? Hand over your money now. I can assure you that you don’t want me to make you.”
“I’d like to see you make me,” Sima Xian fumed, emanating a dangerous aura, his eyes burning with anger. “You want my money? Come get it!” He was hailed as a genius soul master; he’d never let this bald guy bully him into handing over his money, even though the bully was much bigger than him.
Two minutes later.
“I knew you had a lot of money on you. Thank you, shorty,” the baldy said, taking his foot off Sima Xian’s back.
“Come find me anytime if you want your money back. The name is Long Yue.” With that, he turned around and strode into the Monster Academy.
Sima Xian pulled himself to his feet, blood welling from his mouth. He turned and slunk away, with a defiant growl to save his pride.
Later, he enrolled at the Imperial Star Luo Academy.
If En Ci hadn’t seen the potential in Long Yue, he would have been dispelled. Still, he got disciplined by the Monster Academy.
Long Yue turned and found his teammates smiling knowingly at him.
“Only Yun’er can laugh at me,” Long Yue said with feigned anger, shaking his fist. “The rest of you, stop smiling or I’ll make you stop.”
But instead of stopping, they burst into a fit of laughter.
Sima Xian was lean, only about five feet tall and his eyes almost as attractive as those of Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin met his eyes and saw a strong desire in them. Why is he staring at me like that? he wondered.
He didn’t know what had happened between Sima Xian and Long Yue, so he couldn’t come to the conclusion that he was eager to test his skills on him.
Getting beaten up and robbed of his tuition fees was an absolute disgrace to Sima Xian. He had attempted three times to seek revenge, but each time he had lost worse than the time before; he had discovered to his dismay that the gap in power between him and Long Yue had become even wider, so he started training hard in the hope of catching up to him. It had been three years since he last saw Long Yue, and Sima Xian felt he was ready now. He had been looking forward to this match ever since he had found out that he got to fight Tang Wulin, because everyone knew this captain of the Shrek Academy team was strong, and was comparing him with Long Yue.
Sima Xian was excited, thinking about how to beat Tang Wulin. After I beat him, everyone will know my name, and I’ll be more confident of getting my revenge and redeeming myself.
The referee took a look at them and started the match.
Sitting straight at her table, Fang’er said, “The match has started. Let’s see who will win.
“Sima Xian is making his first move; he is releasing his martial soul. Five purple soul rings! His soul rings can even rival those of a fine student of the Monster Academy. His martial soul is the Takin Dragon, a descendent of a dragon and a takin. It inherited its strength from the dragon and its speed from the takin.”
Hearing this, Xie Xie and Yuanen Yehui smiled at the same time.
Tang Wulin didn’t move. The stage was too big, so he had decided to wait for Sima Xian to come to him.
Sima Xian’s first soul ring started shining, followed immediately by the second one. His body stretched and swelled as he transformed into a takin dragon with a long tail and two huge takin horns.
The dragon that had mated with the takin was one of the Nine Dragon Kings which possesed immense strength, but still, the power in Sima Xian’s blood couldn’t hold a candle to that of Tang Wulin – or Long Yue or Su Mu, for that matter.
Sima Xian charged at Tang Wu Lin with his head down, giving off a frightening aura. His hooves stomped the ground, creating yellow ripples of light.
That was his soul skill: Gravity Control.
The power of this technique could grow with his soul power. Right now he was able to increase the gravity around him five-fold, and the gravity increase didn’t affect him a bit.
Tang Wulin couldn’t hear what Fang’er was saying, but he could sense the draconic vibe Sima Xian was giving off. He was glad.
Sima Xian was really fast, his hind legs long and stout, his horns gleaming. The effect of his Gravity Control had already reached his opponent when he was still 300 feet away.
That was when Tang Wulin’s eyes started shining a bright golden. His scales appeared and instantly spread across his body. His first golden soul ring lit up. Golden Dragon Body!
His eyes fixed on Sima Xian, his golden claws hanging at his sides.
