Now Wang Dong and Huo Yuhao’s fused Haodong Power erupted. The combusting Radiant Butterfly Goddess flapped her dazzling wings and hugged the Spirit Eyes’ projection. Her projection disappeared, while the bluish-purple Spirit Eyes shone ridiculously bright.
The dazzling, bluish-gold light flame shone brightly above the Spirit Eyes’ projection. It suddenly fell from the air and protected Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong.
The huge Spirit Eyes appeared very deep. On a closer look, it seemed to contain a boundless world. At this moment, a beam of light that was a combination of blue, purple, and gold shot out.
It shot straight, and everything that crossed its path became nothingness. That instant of brightness seemed to last an eternity. The tri-colored beam of light left a blurred trail behind as it shot forward.
Ji Juechen’s sword contained a forward-moving, indestructible sword intent. That was why his attack would never change, even if his sword left his hand.
Huo Yuhao was too familiar with him. Along with the unparalleled detection capabilities of his Spiritual Detection, that bright light extended more than five meters in width and hundred meters in length. It extended all the way until it hit the walls of the academy.
Ji Juechen’s figure was swallowed by the tri-colored light. His forward-moving momentum didn’t change, but his sword intent was destroyed.
The light dispersed, Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong re-appeared in Jing Ziyan’s view again. But, with Jing Ziyan flabbergasted, she forgot to unleash her next attack even though the Domain of Perpetual Ice had disappeared.
She couldn’t believe what she was seeing. What did I just see? A blue, purple and gold beam of light that was five meters wide, three meters tall and a hundred meters long? My god! What soul skill is this? Even a seven or eight-ringed soul master could only match that power after they unleashed their Martial Soul True Body!
She was even more shocked that the tri-colored light left a gully that was almost five meters wide, shining with a bright-golden color.
A patch of gold had also formed on the wall of the academy. Furthermore, the wall, built with stainless steel, was melting at alarming speeds. A wide opening was revealed as a result of that. The golden fluid that was formed after the wall melted was also very strange.
Ji Juechen stopped less than five meters away from Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong. He was still holding his sword, as if he wanted to strike. However, his sword looked a little out of shape. A strange glow was subtly revealed on its surface.
“What soul skill is this? No, it should be a martial fusion soul skill!” Jing Ziyan exclaimed. She had completely forgotten that it was a two-on-two fight.
She wasn’t the only one who was shocked. Ji Juechen was even more shocked than her. He felt that the streak of light was ten times the size of the Sovereign’s Descent. The terrifying spiritual shock caused his sword intent to collapse. In addition, there was even the intense aura of light from it. He felt as if his sword had gone soft, almost as if the extremely tough Extraterrestrial Meteoric Steel was cotton now. His soul power fell by almost half, and he was stuck in some kind of spiritual confusion. His thoughts were paralyzed, he couldn’t move.
Huo Yuhao pulled Wang Dong’s hand, and they smiled as they looked at each other. They said simultaneously, “A Golden Road Amidst Withering Resplendence.”
Jing Ziyan muttered repeatedly, “Golden Road, damned Golden Road.”
After being immobilized for three seconds, Ji Juechen’s body shook a little, and he finally regained his ability to move. However, there was still a layer of gold on his body. When he moved, his clothing looked like it was about to melt off.
Ji Juechen didn’t remain behind, he shook his body and vanished. The layer of gold evaporated, and only his voice was left echoing in the air.
“Huo Yuhao, I’ll never be done with you in my entire life.”
Jing Ziyan’s shock slowly disappeared. She scratched her head in a very manly manner and said, “Huo Yuhao, you’re a treasure that keeps giving! I’m honored to have you as a target to chase. Juechen’s right. We’ll never be done with you in our entire lives.”
Huo Yuhao rolled his eyes and said, “This exchange will be ending a few months after the holidays are over, and I’ll return to Shrek. Follow me to Shrek if you can. There are many people over there you can pester if you want.”
Jing Ziyan’s eyes brightened, and she said, “Right, that’s a great idea. In fact, I’m getting more and more interested in Shrek Academy after knowing you. No, I must seek approval from the Hallmaster to be in the next batch of exchange students right away.” As she spoke, she turned and ran off while Huo Yuhao watched her in shock. She disappeared very quickly.
Huo Yuhao almost cursed, “Those rascals, surely they won’t actually follow us back to Shrek?”
Wang Dong glanced at Huo Yuhao and smiled. “Why? What’s going on? You didn’t seem like enemies.”
Huo Yuhao laughed bitterly. “They’re fanatics. They’re always pestering me to spar with them. Today’s another of my ‘lucky’ days… Second brother, you’ve given me a huge surprise!” As he spoke, Huo Yuhao suddenly turned around and hugged Wang Dong tightly once again.
“My brother, I’m delighted to see you again.”
Huo Yuhao’s direct and emotional words caused Wang Dong to tear up slightly. He hugged him back and muttered, “Me too.”
He Caitou stood there and was a little annoyed as he said, “The two of you can continue being intimate, I guess. I’ll return first. We’ll eat together later. I’ll inform Teacher Fan Yu for now.”
In fact, Wang Dong was barred from entering the Sun Moon Imperial Soul Engineering Academy when he came by this morning. He said that he was from Shrek and asked someone to help look for the exchange students. He had managed to locate He Caitou, who easily recognized him. He Caitou was surprised, and decided to give Huo Yuhao a surprise as well.
It was only now that the guards standing at the academy’s gates walked over. There were four of them. Their leader was brief as he said to Huo Yuhao, “Student Huo, you’ve breached the school rules today! Come with us to make a statement.”
Huo Yuhao relaxed his hug with Wang Dong. But, before he even said anything, he was interrupted by Wang Dong. “Why don’t you chase after the other two? Why’re you finding fault with us? Do you think we’re easy targets for bullying just because we’re from Shrek? We can make a statement if you want. However, you’ll need to fight us first!”
While he was very gentle when he was with Huo Yuhao, he was actually still very arrogant, just like when he had first met Huo Yuhao. He was extremely displeased, as his reunion with Huo Yuhao was being disrupted.
The guards were a little annoyed. “We won’t fight. We’re not sandbags. Don’t put us in a spot. Student Huo, it’s not that we’re not giving you face. However, the damages are too obvious. If the academy asks, we can’t account for them!” As he spoke, he pointed to the results of the Golden Road.
Huo Yuhao wasn’t an unreasonable person. In addition, why would he be calculative against these guards? He was apologetic as he said, “I’m sorry, I’ll pay for the repairs needed for the walls and road.”
“However, it’s not exactly my fault. Ji Juechen and Jing Ziyan provoked us first. You have seen everything. They were the ones chasing me. Please tell the truth when you report this to the academy. I’ll record a statement to help out.”
The guards were relieved with Huo Yuhao’s cooperation. They got a better impression of him from that.
As guards of the academy, they naturally possessed some strength of their own. They at least had the required level of cultivation. But it was their first time seeing something as dazzling as Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong’s martial fusion soul skill. They respected the two of them more because of that.
Within a few minutes, the statement was done. Huo Yuhao didn’t know that the guards made a lot of stuff up to push the problems onto Ji Juechen and Jing Ziyan. Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong were completely absolved of blame. They weren’t really all that loyal to the academy. One of them was impressed by Huo Yuhao, while another approved of him because Huo Yuhao had demonstrated his respect towards them by willingly recording a statement. They even made an exception, and allowed Huo Yuhao to bring Wang Dong into the academy.
Wang Dong caught too much attention. If it were anyone else standing beside him, they would be completely overshadowed. However, Huo Yuhao wasn’t overshadowed by Wang Dong. Even though his looks were inferior to Wang Dong’s, his aura wasn’t. To the Sun Moon Imperial Soul Engineering Academy students, his mature and elegant aura demonstrated his strength.
Fortunately, the academy was on a short break, and thus there were very few students left in the academy. Otherwise, Wang Dong would have attracted far more attention.
As Huo Yuhao walked, he sized up Wang Dong.
Wang Dong glanced at him and said, “What’re you looking at?”
Huo Yuhao complimented, “You’ve gotten more handsome after two years. I feel so embarrassed standing beside you! Didn’t you see? There were a few female students looking this way just now. Their eyes couldn’t leave you.”
Wang Dong smiled and said, “This is called natural beauty. Don’t worry, I won’t despise you for having boorish looks.”
Huo Yuhao laughed and said, “That’s for describing women. However, I think it should be fine for you to impersonate one if you put on some makeup! Now that your hair is so long, you do seem more feminine.”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
