Volume 24, Chapter 220.1: Goddess By My Side

Fortunately, the Snowy Dance of Ice and Snow didn’t last for a long time, so it didn’t freeze the entirety of Sea God’s Lake. The violent wind and snowstorm slowly stopped.

The original battlefield had turned a dazzling white. A foot of ice had already accumulated in that short period of time, and the chill caused the internal temperature of the entire academy to drop!

Huo Yuhao stood where he was as he held Wang Dong’er’s hand. Not far from them stood five ice sculptures of different forms.

As he turned around, Huo Yuhao faced Wang Dong’er and said softly, “I’d like to see you. Can I?”

“Yes,” Wang Dong agreed.

After the fight, their tense feelings had disappeared, and the Haodong Power that circulated in their bodies had guided them.

Even though he was facing a strong opponent, Huo Yuhao was still very resolute. His hands trembled slightly as he touched the hat and veil.

He felt his heart beating faster and faster. His intense yearning was mixed with anxiety.

Wang Dong’er’s reaction was greater than his. She lowered her head slightly and twiddled her fingers in front of her. She wasn’t anywhere near as full of energy as she was when she had called for a two-versus-five fight.

Huo Yuhao eventually stopped. He didn’t pull down the hat. He whispered something before Wang Dong’er nodded her head.

In the next moment, Huo Yuhao held her hand as they glided backward.

Countless streaks of lights exploded like fireworks, shooting out from Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong’er’s bodies as their center, blinding everyone. Amidst the lights, Wang Dong’er was pulled into Huo Yuhao’s arms, and their bodies combined into one entity.

The golden-bluish wings started to expand at a frightening speed, their size doubling instantly.

The Radiant Butterfly Goddess’ wings were normally separated into top and bottom, but there was another jade-colored middle wing right now. It was smooth, transparent, and brightly-colored, releasing a thick aura of life. The true meaning of life was light and water, and this life aura complemented the aura of light.

The dazzling butterfly wings opened wide. Blue, gold, and green lights colored the world around them. Above the wings, there seemed to be countless beads of water refracting what light was present. As the lights shone, layers and layers of frost were released from the Radiant Butterfly Goddess’ feet, making her slender figure look extremely elegant.

As the frost spread, the snowflakes on the ground were guided into the air, where they started to dance. As the freezing chill spread, Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong’er’s fused bodies started to transform in a shocking manner. A slender figure started to surface from the tri-colored glow.

The hat and veil melted away within the golden lights, leaving only a young lady behind. She was more than one hundred eighty centimeters tall, and her slender figure extremely captivating!

Her long hair was pinkish-blue, and flowed all the way down to her feet. Her eyes were bright-gold, and her slender figure was flawless – no words could describe how proportionate her enchanting figure was. Her ravishing looks were superior to all of the ladies present. Every streak of light and curve of her body were perfectly complementary. No one could describe how they felt when they first saw her. However, she definitely had everyone’s full attention!

She moved in the next moment. She stepped forward with her left leg and rose into the air. The orange-gold Snow Lady landed on her shoulder as she gestured, and the tri-colored wings behind her back propelled her body into the air as she started to dance.

Thick mist started to spread from her legs upward, changing into streaks that surrounded her body as they spun around her.

The dark sky suddenly cracked open, and a streak of golden sunlight descended, landing on her body. Suddenly, the surrounding ice and snow were illuminated by a golden glow. A golden halo engulfed her, like a goddess that undergoing a rebirth within the light.

She started dancing in the air. Every step she took was gentle and perfect. Her enchanting looks were filled with the light of life and hope, her wings greatly accentuating her body and movements. The Raiment of Light surfaced as she was surrounded by the warmth of the light.

Her wings extended and retracted continuously, adding to her otherworldly elegance.

A subtle golden rune appeared on her forehead, clearer than the last time. It seemed to be the image of a golden trident.

Her golden eyes were gentle, her smooth white face slightly rosy. Her figure flashed, and was somehow in front of an ice sculpture. As she touched the sculpture, it started to melt.

The ice covering the Sea God’s Lake had turned into her stage. As everyone watched in a daze, her dazzling wings beat as she danced in the air. Five ice sculptures melted one by one.

Ling Luochen, Ning Tian, Wu Feng, Xie Huanyue and Dai Huabin had not lost consciousness. They had been lost in the Snowy Dance of Ice and Snow, and the Spiritual Tempest. However, they didn’t completely lose consciousness.

As the ice melted, a warm feeling engulfed their bodies and quickened their blood. They also saw the ravishing figure and the long, pinkish-blue hair.

Solitary Dance Amidst the Frost, Raiment of Light.

They were also dazed. No matter how negative they felt, their emotions slowly calmed down within this aura that was a combination of cold, life, and light.

As the tri-colored wings retracted, the Raiment of Light finally returned to its original spot.

It separated and became two different people again.

Huo Yuhao was still Huo Yuhao, but the lady beside him no longer had her hat on.

She was evidently a smaller version of the Goddess of Light.

As her long, pinkish-blue hair flowed behind her, her eyes started to roll. She was embarrassed, and didn’t dare to look at Huo Yuhao.

Huo Yuhao was also in a daze. Although he knew that it was Wang Dong’er in front of him, he still didn’t believe it.

Wang Dong and Wang Dong’er looked so similar, but he felt as if he couldn’t find Wang Dong. Wang Dong’er was an immature version of the Goddess of Light. So, my goddess has always been by my side from the start to now...

“There’s a disguise technique in my family that enabled me to change my voice and alter my facial lines. I could even develop an Adam’s apple. Although the changes aren’t too drastic, they make it difficult for others to recognize me.” Wang Dong’er’s voice was very soft, but Huo Yuhao could still hear her clearly.

No wonder she was so different! 

“You... you concealed the truth from me for so long!” Huo Yuhao grinned.

“Sorry, I…”

“Don’t say sorry. I was a fool,” Huo Yuhao said gently as he held her hands, “Didn’t you say that I’m your fool? Don’t regret your choice!”

“Let me think about it again. You already have Ju Zi!” Wang Dong’er shot back.

“Nonsense! We’re only good friends!” Huo Yuhao replied resolutely.

Wang Dong’er lifted her head. Her gaze was slightly stiff as she stared at Huo Yuhao. “Really?”

“Of course! When we first exhibited the Raiment of Light, I was already captivated by the Goddess of Light’s figure. No one else could enter my heart after that.” After pausing for a moment, Huo Yuhao looked at her seriously, “Right now, my goddess is by my side.”

Wang Dong’er finally smiled. Her smile seemed as gorgeous as blooming flowers.

She had expended a lot of effort just for today.

After more than two years apart, she had recognized her feelings for him. She had even tried to forget him. However, she realized that she couldn’t do so.

That was why she went to find him and brought him back to the Clear Sky Sect, hoping that her relatives would approve of him. When she met Ju Zi along the way, she felt threatened.

After returning to the academy, she began her set-up. She revealed her identity to Bei Bei, Jiang Nannan, and Xiao Xiao, hoping to receive their help. She had wanted to wait until the next Continental Advanced Soul Master Academy Soul Dueling Tournament before she revealed everything to Huo Yuhao. However, she realized after their separation that she couldn’t wait any longer. She was most troubled by the fact that Huo Yuhao might not develop feelings for her if he didn’t know that she was actually a lady, no matter how close they were.

Now that everything had settled, he turned out to not be a complete fool, and her hard work had finally paid off.

Huo Yuhao suddenly seemed to think of something. As he turned and looked into the distance, the entire Sea God’s Lake was completely silent. However, everyone’s attention was focused on him. He was slightly embarrassed.

“Eldest senior sister, eldest senior, can we go now? The Bride Kidnapping should have ended, right?” Huo Yuhao shouted towards Bei Bei and Zhang Lexuan. He normally called Bei Bei eldest senior, while Zhang Lexuan was often referred to as eldest senior sister by everyone else. When he called out to both of them together, it sounded weird.

Everyone only recovered from their shock after hearing his voice.
