Volume 24, Chapter 220.2: Goddess By My Side

The truth was that no one knew how Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong had won. They hadn’t been able to sense anything, as everything within the domain was under Huo Yuhao’s control. The original two-versus-five fight ended in an overwhelming victory, but everyone wasn’t focused on the victory. They were more captivated by Wang Dong’er, as she was too beautiful. Not only were the male students wide-eyed in shock, but the female students were also intoxicated by her beauty.

“Can we still ‘kidnap the bride’ now?” some male student said weakly, his words reflecting what most of the male students were thinking. If they had known that she was so pretty, Huo Yuhao would have had many more competitors today!

Zhang Lexuan glared at the male student who spoke. “Cut your crap. Moreover, you’ll need to challenge both of them to ‘kidnap the bride’. Do you have any confidence of beating them? The Bride Kidnapping segment is over! I hereby announce that Huo Yuhao and…” she abruptly stopped at this point. Bei Bei hurriedly reminded her of Wang Dong’er’s name. “Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong’er have gotten together successfully in the Eternal Love segment. I wish them a blissful future!”

Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong’er clasped palms and fists towards everyone. They looked at each other and smiled before gliding back to the shore.

Huo Yuhao had been astonishing in today’s blind date. It was also his first time demonstrating his abilities and the strength of the Ultimate Ice in front of the inner courtyard students. But he was personally even more shocked to discover Wang Dong’er’s true identity.

The biggest commotion was happening on the ferry right now. The elders and teachers on the ferry had already disembarked. They had no choice – the ferry couldn’t move since the lake water had been frozen.

Yan Shaozhe’s eyes were shining as he asked, “Elder Xuan, should we ask Huo Yuhao about his Spirit now?” They were all top-ranked soul masters, and could tell the benefits that a Spirit could bring. Moreover, Huo Yuhao’s four orange-gold soul rings were too shocking. Whether it was a Spirit or the orange-gold soul rings, they had never appeared before. They would feel very uncomfortable if they didn’t ask Huo Yuhao clearly about these new existences.

Elder Xuan snapped, “Alright, don’t be annoying! They’ve just become a couple, let them be intimate for a while. Tomorrow morning, you can come to the Sea God’s Pavilion and we’ll ask him together. Wang Dong’er is really secretive! However, Huo Yuhao is really just a blockhead. They stayed in the same room for so long, but he never discovered her identity. Hahaha!”

Elder Lin smiled and said, “Those two children are really interesting. Huo Yuhao’s domain was very strong. I seemed to see orange-gold rings lighting up when he unleashed the domain just now. Was that a domain-type soul skill?”

Elder Xuan waved his hand and said, “It’s not that simple. He already has a domain-type soul skill, but it’s not so strong, and can’t cover such a huge region. It seems like this fellow has encountered something miraculous again. I believe this domain is related to his Spirit. Since everyone’s so interested in his Spirit, I shall specifically call for a conference in the Sea God’s Pavilion tomorrow and allow him to participate. Since he’s also a special member of the Sea God’s Pavilion, it’s time for everyone to meet him.”

All the elders nodded their heads. While they were old, they were still very curious. Moreover, this concerned the future development of Shrek Academy.


They returned to shore, Huo Yuhao still holding Wang Dong’er’s hand tightly. He had too many things to say to her.

Huo Yuhao grinned as he asked, “Dong’er, is that what I should call you from now on?” 

Wang Dong’er lowered her head and said softly, “Yes. Should we leave after the entire event is over?”

Huo Yuhao shook his head and replied, “No, it’s enough just looking at you.”

“Have you seen enough of me?” Wang Dong’er was amused.

Huo Yuhao changed his words. “Never in this lifetime.”

Wang Dong’er smiled. There weren’t any outsiders now, and she became less shy. She dared to look into Huo Yuhao’s eyes now.

“Yuhao, I’m sorry. I hid my identity intentionally from you previously because…”

Huo Yuhao interrupted her, “I understand. I’m actually very glad!”

“Glad?” Wang Dong’er was perplexed as she looked at him.

Huo Yuhao chuckled and said, “Of course I’m glad. If you came in as a female student, I wouldn’t have been able to enter your life! You’re too pretty, so you’d have captured the attention of others easily. You wouldn’t have stayed in the same dorm room as me, and we’d have had no chance of building up our feelings. We wouldn’t even have our martial fusion soul skills. Naturally, what happened today wouldn’t have happened either!”

“Shall we return to the Sea God’s Pavilion?” Wang Dong asked.

“Alright.” Huo Yuhao was bubbling with joy now. His eyes didn’t deviate from Wang Dong’er at all, as if he couldn’t get enough of looking at her.

As they walked towards the Sea God’s Pavilion, Huo Yuhao said, “Wang Dong’er, I now understand why you did all those weird things you did when you first entered the academy. For example, you mysteriously went to bathe on your own and you’d get angry with me after I slept with you.”

“You’re so bad. Why do you have to mention all of this…?” Wang Dong’er blushed and smacked him.

Huo Yuhao chortled, “I’m telling the truth! Do you still remember? When we first managed to create the Golden Road, we fainted because we expended too much energy and were late for class on the second day. We were punished by Teacher Zhou, and she even shouted at us through the window asking whether we were dating. She probably won’t expect the both of us to be dating now.”

As she recalled what had happened that day, Wang Dong’er revealed a slight smile on her face. “Of course I remember. You were such a fool then. You fought so hard every day and made the class fight with you. Thinking about it, I believe many students from our class will be able to enter the inner courtyard when they reach the sixth grade apart from us and fifth senior.”

Huo Yuhao laughed. “It must be the good fortune rubbing on us from being class monitors!”

Wang Dong’er laughed too. “Stop bragging!”

Huo Yuhao said, “Oh yes, you don’t have a twin sister, am I right?”

Wang Dong’er rolled her eyes at him. “Why are you asking such a stupid question at this point? Of course not. Why would I have a twin sister?”

Huo Yuhao mocked, “So you were matchmaking yourself then.”

Wang Dong’er blushed. “Who asked you to be such a wooden block?”

Huo Yuhao sighed, “Yes! I should have thought of it earlier, especially since I saw you that day. Did you remove your veil intentionally for me to see, or did you intentionally leave your name Wang Qiu’er behind to draw me to the Sea God’s Fate?”

Wang Dong’er was stunned. “What veil? What Wang Qiu’er?”

Huo Yuhao laughed. “What? Why are you trying to conceal things from me at this point? I met you that day when I returned to the academy. You were already dressed like a girl then. You also wore a veil, which you dropped when you walked past me. I caught hold of it. When I took a look at it, it was embroidered with the words ‘Wang Qiu’er’ on it. You snatched it back before running away. I failed to chase you. When I reached Shrek City, I lost track of you.”

Wang Dong’er was confused. “I don’t know what you’re talking about. Since you returned, I never met you before today! I only peeked at you when you were crying outside the Sea God’s Pavilion. What Wang Qiu’er? I don’t know!”

“What? That wasn’t you?” Huo Yuhao was stunned. He was sure that Wang Dong’er had no need to lie to him anymore at this point. However, the incident that day was definitely real. What was going on?

Wang Dong’er felt that something was amiss. “Yuhao, think about it carefully again. Are you sure you saw someone that looked like me? There was no difference at all?”

Huo Yuhao furrowed his brows and tried his best to recall what had happened that day. His Spirit Eyes were very sharp, his spiritual power was immense and his memory was impeccable.

As he tried to recall more detail, he said, “She did seem a little different, now that you mention it. She looked a bit older than you, and she was slightly taller than you. Her voice also sounded a little different. However, I only had a short glance at her then, and didn’t interact much with her. The feeling she gave me was also very familiar though, but it was slightly different from the familiar feeling that you give me.”

Wang Dong’er was shocked as she watched Huo Yuhao, and asked, “There’s actually someone who looks just like me? How is that possible?”

Huo Yuhao laughed bitterly. “I don’t know either! However, she should be from the academy, since she walked out from the academy that day. Perhaps she’s from another academy and trying to get into the inner courtyard just like you mentioned? Dong’er, are you sure that you don’t have a twin sister?”

Wang Dong’er replied without any hesitation, “Of course I’m sure. I never ever had a sister! I’ll go and ask tomorrow. If she tried to enter the inner courtyard, there must be a record.”

“Right.” Huo Yuhao was also very doubtful now. In his memory, Wang Qiu’er was too similar to Wang Dong’er. The differences between them were almost negligible. Even after acute observation, it was still very difficult for him to differentiate them.

“I understand now!” Huo Yuhao exclaimed suddenly. 

“What do you understand?” Wang Dong asked hurriedly.
