Chapter 698 - Get Out of My Face
Yue Zhengyu sighed and shook his head. “The only man attracted to you is a halfwit, Yuanen. The gods are cruel,” he jested. “Want my advice? Find out what he likes about you and change that behavior. Before long he’ll leave you alone.”
“That’s actually really good advice. Now get out of my face, would you?” Yuanen Yehui said impatiently.
“Yeah, leave us alone,” Xie Xie echoed.
“You too! Get out of my face before I punch you!” She shot an angry glance at Xie Xie.
By then Xu Lizhi had conjured up a mound of buns. “Have some buns and get some rest,” Tang Wulin said to his friends, picking up a bun. “We have a tough fight before us.”
After having the refreshments, they sat down and began to meditate.
“I’m sorry, Brother Long Yue. It’s all my fault we lost the doubles match,” Dai Yun’er said as she stood with her head bowed.
Long Yue stroked her hair. “No, Yun’er. We lost because Tang Wulin fought dirty. But that little trick of his won’t work again, I promise you that. Victory will be ours.” Then he turned to Dai Yueyan. “How are your wounds, Yueyan? Yun’er can compete in your stead if you don’t feel very well.”
“Nothing to worry about. I can fight,” the fourth prince said. Of course he was not fully recovered from his injuries, and his battle armor was as damaged as his body, if not more so. He could only use about 70 percent of his full power in his current state.
Long Yue nodded. “Good. Don’t underestimate them just because they are young. Tang Wulin has three golden soul rings now, but I’ll take care of him. And that partner of his, Gu Yue, she hasn’t shown her true power, that’s for sure. What happened on the stage, Yun’er? Why did you faint all of a sudden?”
“I sent a spiritual attack at her, but she reflected it right back at me. I think her spiritual power is stronger than mine.”
Dai Yun’er’s spiritual power towered over her peers at over 2,500 points, so they were shocked when they heard that. “The Shrek Academy is indeed worthy of its reputation,” said Teng Teng.
“Lin San, I’ll leave her to you,” Long Yue said. “Take her out as quickly as possible. Don’t give her chance to use her teleportation technique.”
Lin San nodded solemnly. “Yes, Captain.”
“Take advantage of your soul power and battle armor. Don’t go easy on them, because they won’t go easy on us. I’ll keep my power under control, don’t worry about me,” said the Dragon King.
Dai Yueyan was surprised to see Long Yue taking a match so seriously.
Half an hour passed quickly.
“Would the combatants please come to the stage?” said a referee.
The two teams headed out of the waiting area. A faint smile brushed Tang Wulin’s lips when he saw Long Yue. The Dragon King gave him a look that suggested he would love to stomp him on his chest again.
The audience cheered and applauded, wondering which team would win. They would like to see the championship won by the Monster Academy team, but they didn’t have as much confidence in them as they had when the tournament started. Long Yue is insanely strong, to be sure, Fang’er thought, but will he be able to take on four or five members of the Shrek Academy team all at once?
She had no time to think about it though. “Now… the moment you’ve all been waiting for, the team competition final!” she spoke into the microphone. “Long Yue, Dai Yueyan, Su Mu, Lin San, Hua Lantang, Ye Zhi, and Teng Teng of the Monster Academy versus Tang Wulin, Gu Yue, Ye Xinglan, Yuanen Yehui, Yue Zhengyu, Xie Xie, and Xu Xiaoyan of the Shrek Academy! Long Yue and Tang Wulin are the captains of the two teams respectively.
“The Monster Academy team is a crowd favorite. Long Yue is indisputably the strongest among his team. He is a six-ringed strength-type Soul Emperor, and his Mountain Dragon King martial soul is extremely powerful. Hopefully he won’t lose control of himself in this match. The fourth prince and Hua Lantang are strength-type soul masters as well. Lin San and Teng Teng are both agility-type soul masters. Su Mu is skilled in control skills, but his attack power is also impressive. Ye Zhi’s Seven Treasures Glazed Pagoda is the most powerful support-type martial soul. The Monster Academy team is certainly a force to be reckoned with.
“As for the Shrek Academy Team, Tang Wulin, Ye Xinglan, Yuanen Yehui, Yue Zhengyu are all assault-type soul masters; Gu Yue can use ranged techniques; Xu Xiaoyan is a control-type soul master; Xie Xie is an agility-type soul master.
“Tang Wulin’s team also has a support-type soul master, Xu Lizhi, but for some unknown reason, he is not on the stage. Support-type soul masters are very important, especially in team battles, so I think the Shrek Academy team is at a disadvantage.
“We have a great bout ahead of us, and we’ll find out which team is stronger soon enough.”
