Chapter 659 - Tang Wulin vs. Dai Yun’er
Looking at them, Tang Wulin showed a helpless smile. She wouldn’t let him off the hook easily, but it’s definitely a good thing for Xie Xie. Because of her, his potential has been constantly stimulated.
“I’m glad that you’ve become stronger,” Tang Wulin said to Yuanen Yehui. “We’ll get a good result in this tournament.”
“Do you know how much pressure you put on us?” she asked suddenly.
Tang Wulin froze for a moment, but then he saw the smile on Yuanen Yehui's face. “I like the pressure,” she continued, “and if there is no one in front of me that I can chase, I won’t be this motivated and may end up at a loss, so don't let me catch up.”
Most people were in no mood to watch the rest of today’s matches after the Monster Academy had lost again. They were extremely dissatisfied. They wanted to win. They would like to see Long Yue fight the best of the Shrek Academy team.
Teng Teng's injury was not serious. He had almost recovered after treatment, but he still needed some recuperation. His armor had been seriously damaged, and it would take time to repair. In the later team competition, the role that his armor could play would be limited. Because if it got completely destroyed, the loss would be great – it cost a fortune to make a full set of one-word battle armor. Although it was time for him to start making his two-word battle armor – since he was already a five-ringed Soul King – it couldn't be made in a short time.
If the Monster Academy wanted to beat the Shrek Academy completely, they must win the one-on-one and two-on-two competitions, and they must also win the team competition, even though it was not paid much attention to. Because the team competition was a contest of comprehensive strength. The strongest school was the school that won the team competition.
The next day's fights were just as good. Xie Xie's opponent was not weak, but his high-speed attacks eliminated him. All three of the Shrek Academy's competitors made it to the top 32.
As for the Monster Academy, all five competitors had successfully entered the top 32 except for Teng Teng, who had been defeated by Yuanen Yehui. Long Yue's match seemed to be no different from his preliminary ones. He won it with little effort.
The next round would be held the following day. This was a little bit of a disadvantage for the contestants who had just competed today, but they had no choice but to follow the rule.
The next morning, when Tang Wulin entered the stadium with Yuanen Yehui and Xie Xie, he wore a coat with a hood bought here over his uniform. He had become the enemy of the Star Luo Empire, a target of scorn. Every time he was seen by pedestrians on the road, he was pointed at or even cursed.
The authorities could ensure their safety, but the swearing couldn’t be stopped. This was the misfortune of being outsiders.
Tang Wulin already knew who his opponent was: Dai Yun’er, the Spirit King, the last of the Monster Eight Kings and the spoiled princess.
Among the Monster Eight Kings, Dai Yun’er was the weakest in terms of cultivation level. Like him, she was also a four-ringed soul master without a full set of one-word battle armor. Undoubtedly, she was a relatively easy opponent for Tang Wulin to deal with.
The opponents of Yuanen Yehui and Xie Xie were not weak, but on the flip side, they were not from the Monster Academy.
The situation would not be so ideal after they made it to the top 16; Tang Wulin would have to fight Dai Yueyan, and Xie Xie’s opponent would be an agility-type soul master who was ranked fourth in the Monster Eight Kings.
But if everything went well and Tang Wulin advanced to the top eight, he would face Yuanen Yehui.
Winning this tournament was a tough task for Tang Wulin.
After they walked into the waiting area, Tang Wulin took off his coat. Dai Yun’er sprang to her feet and reached him in several strides, blocking his way.
"Tang Wulin, your opponent today is me." She stared at him with burning eyes.
“I know,” Tang Wulin said with a hint of a smile.
The princess shook her fist at him. “If I were you, I’d yield now and save the humiliation of getting defeated.”
Tang Wulin rolled his eyes. “No offense, but you ought to have your head examined.”
With that, he walked past her and went to his seat, followed by Yuanen Yehui and Xie Xie, who tried to stifle a smile but failed.
Dai Yun’er stood there, rooted to the spot. She felt anger coiling inside her. It was the first time in her life she had been humiliated.
“Tang Wulin!” she screamed, and stormed towards him, yet Dai Yueyan caught her by the arm before she made a bigger fool of herself, but still, some audience in the stands had heard her scream Tang Wulin’s name. They represented not only the Monster Academy, but also the Star Luo Empire. The princess would cause the royal family to lose face if she fought with Tang Wulin here.
Paying no mind to Dai Yun’er’s shrill yelling, Tang Wulin sat down, picked up a glass of juice, and drank it, savoring its wonderful flavor. She already hates me. How much worse can it get?
Dai Yueyan was speechless. Why can’t they get along?
She took her seat angrily after Dai Yueyan told her that she could teach him a lesson soon enough on the stage today.
If eyes could kill, Tang Wulin would have been killed a hundred times by her glares.
After this round, the contestants would be given a day off before the next round.
The first match was about to start, and the audience had become tense. Today would witness another clash between the Shrek Academy and the Monster Academy, and the fight was between the captain of the Shrek Academy team and the princess of the Star Luo Empire. They wondered who would win.
Not many people knew the true power of the princess.
She was a four-ringed soul master and ranked at the bottom of the Monster Eight Kings. Considering that Tang Wulin had already defeated Su Mu, she seemed to be the underdog in this match.
However, she was said to be a genius more talented than the fourth prince, Dai Yueyan, and she had allegedly inherited some kind of ability from her ancestors.
If she managed to defeat the captain of the Shrek Academy team, she would be hailed as the goddess of the whole empire.
Of course, they would not blame her, even if she lost. They would blame her opponent for being too cunning.
It was hard not to be biased in situations like this one.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
