Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong began to smile as they listened to Zhou Yi’s familiar tone. This was the teacher Zhou they liked the most!
“Oh, yes! Teacher Zhou, the new inner courtyard students are supposed to report to this school block, right? We want to take a look. Can we find you later?” Wang Dong’er asked.
Zhou Yi answered, “Let me take you there to avoid both of you being detained by other teachers again. Tsk, the two of you… do you really have to be so intimate all the time?”
Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong’er instantly blushed and exchanged a look. They didn’t dare to hold hands in the academy anymore.
Zhou Yi was much more familiar with the senior grade school block than they were. They twisted and turned around the corridors, and Zhou Yi brought them to their destination.
Huo Yuhao could already hear voices before they reached the room that new inner courtyard students were supposed to report to.
“You can’t wear a veil like that. If I remember correctly, you were like that during the assessment. You had a recommendation letter back then, so we didn’t say much. However, you’re about to join the academy soon, are you really going to wear that veil around every single day? Even if you have some troubles deep in your heart that you can’t discuss, the teachers responsible for registering you have to know so that we can record it. This is our duty and responsibility. If you refuse to take down your veil, then I’m sorry, you can’t be allowed to join the academy.”
“Do I really have to take it down?” An enchanting voice could be heard, and Huo Yuhao trembled when he heard it. A look of astonishment flowed from his eyes. Isn’t this the voice I heard the other day? He picked up his pace and walked forward quickly.
When Huo Yuhao successfully took Wang Dong’er’s hand during the Sea God’s Fate, Huo Yuhao thought that the Wang Qiu’er that he had met was just an illusion and his hallucination, or it was just Wang Dong’er deliberately fooling around with him. However, the voice that fell into his ears now was just so real and true.
“Ah!” He gasped in surprise before they even walked into the room.
Wang Dong tugged on Huo Yuhao’s sleeve and whispered, “What’s wrong with you? Why are you in such a hurry?”
Huo Yuhao lowered his voice and said, “The voice I just heard was extremely familiar. It was just like that Wang Qiu’er I met the other day.”
They arrived at the room as they spoke. The room’s door was open, and they could see what was happening inside.
The first thing they saw were long locks of powdery-blue hair. Both Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong’er were stunned on the spot when the flowing hair fell into their eyes.
She had a lengthy white dress, long light-blue hair, and her profile appeared identical to Wang Dong’er, except she was a little taller.
Most of the people in the room were teachers at this moment, and there were about four to five of them. Their eyes seemed a little lackluster as they stared at the young woman.
“Ah?” Huo Yuhao, Wang Dong, and Zhou Yi were at the door, and the teachers could naturally see them. When they turned to look at Wang Dong’er’s face, high-pitched gasps of surprise could be heard yet again. The young girl with wave-like hair turned around at this moment.
Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong’er felt as if they had been struck by lightning. They stood there with sluggish eyes, their expressions completely frozen.
The long-haired girl who had turned around also had a pair of huge blue eyes… and her gorgeous looks were identical to Wang Dong’er’s. Besides the fact that she was slightly taller and more well-developed, there were hardly any differences between her and Wang Dong’er at all!
The young woman was also shocked speechless when she saw Wang Dong’er and Huo Yuhao. She even raised her hands to rub her eyes, before she fixed her gaze upon Wang Dong’er once more.
The two girls hollered at the same time, “Why do you look exactly like me?!”
Yes, they were the same – exactly the same. Furthermore, their beauty was unrivaled. All the teachers in the room were overcome with amazement as they stared dumbly.
Zhou Yi’s eyes moved between Wang Dong’er and Wang Qiu’er. She couldn’t help but ask, “Wang Dong, is that your sister?”
Wang Dong’er shook her head stiffly. Her mind was a complete blank as she said, “I… I don’t have a sister! It’s just me...”
Wang Qiu’er was the first to reorient herself, and she shook her head decisively. “I don’t have a younger sister, either. But how do we look so alike?”
Huo Yuhao forced a laugh and said, “You two look alike, and even your names are extremely similar. Nice to meet you – do you remember me?
Wang Qiu’er glanced at Huo Yuhao, and a strange look flashed in the depths of her eyes. She muttered coldly “So you’re the lecher. What did you want to do when you chased me that day?”
Huo Yuhao’s face froze. Did he just become a sexual predator?
“Don’t misunderstand me, Wang Qiu’er. I thought you were Dong’er when I saw you the other day, and I recognized the wrong person, so I decided to follow you. I lost you when we reached the city.”
Wang Qiu’er said plainly, “What else do you want?”
Huo Yuhao snapped his eyes around to Wang Dong’er. Wang Dong’er had recovered by now, but seemed like she was deep in thought.
“Nothing. Sorry to disturb you,” Huo Yuhao replied to Wang Qiu’er before he dragged Wang Dong’er out of the room.
“Something’s not right, Yuhao.” Wang Dong’er looked up and stared at Huo Yuhao with pondering eyes.
Huo Yuhao frowned faintly and said, “Yes, something’s not right. How can the two of you look so similar? It’s unbelievable that the two of you aren’t siblings. Why don’t you send a letter to Uncle Niu and Uncle Tai, and ask them if you actually do have a sister?”
Wang Dong’er shook her head and replied, “No, I’m sure I don’t have a sister. When I looked at her just now, I felt like something was off. It’s not a feeling caused by blood relations. Her soul power undulations are vastly different from mine, and I can feel that her blood essence is exceptionally vigorous, possibly stronger than mine. However, she’s not light-type like me. Except for our looks, I don’t think there’s any other similarity between the two of us.”
Zhou Yi had a skeptical expression as she asked, “What’s going on? Dong’er, I remember you’ve always been dressed like a guy. Perhaps Wang Qiu’er made herself up to match your appearance? But what is her motive, then?”
All three of them were clueless, and nobody knew what was going on.
Huo Yuhao’s reaction was slightly faster. He contemplated momentarily and said, “How about I go look for Dean Yan, and ask him to investigate her identity and background, along with her martial soul and her examination situation. It’s truly difficult to believe that two people in the world can look so alike, but not be related by blood.”
Zhou Yi snorted, “You can’t be so sure. The Douluo Continent is vast, and there are all sorts of miracles and strange things. It’s not as if two people who look so alike but are not related by blood have never been seen before. You two keep your cool. We will analyze this in more detail, and if we don’t find anything amiss, then you two don’t have to entangle yourselves with her anymore, you can treat her like a normal student. If she does have a motive, she will give the game away at some point.”
Wang Dong’er said, “Yes, that’s all we can do. Yuhao, you haven’t seen teacher Zhou for so long, you should stay and accompany her. I’ll go look for Dean Yan. It’s a good opportunity for me to compare her abilities and mine.”
Huo Yuhao nodded as he replied, “Alright!”
Wang Dong’er walked away briskly, and Huo Yuhao turned back towards Wang Qiu’er in the room, who was wearing her veil again and carrying on with the registration.
It was possible for two people who were not related by blood to look alike, but such identical appearances were truly extraordinary and unbelievable.
Huo Yuhao took his doubts away and followed Zhou Yi back to her office. He had no choice but to push his misgivings to the back to his mind as he sat down with teacher Zhou. He began to describe his various encounters over the past two years after they were separated from each other. Fan Yu had probably conveyed Huo Yuhao’s general situation to Zhou Yi, but he still recounted his life in detail to her, while he also asked about his classmates from before.
Too many things had happened to him over the past two years, and it took a long time for him to recount everything.
They were still talking when Wang Dong’er returned.
“Dong’er.” Huo Yuhao stood up hurriedly when he saw her.
Wang Dong’er said, “I got the information. We are indeed different.”
Huo Yuhao gave her some space to sit down. Wang Dong’er’s face was a little lost, and it was clear that she had run into a conundrum.
“What’s the situation?” Zhou Yi asked.
Wang Dong’er answered, “Her name is Wang Qiu’er, and she’s nineteen years old, so she’s slightly older than I am. She only has one martial soul, but it’s an extremely rare pureblood dragon-type martial soul. Furthermore, it’s a martial soul that’s rarely seen even amongst dragon-type martial souls: the Golden Dragon.”
Huo Yuhao and Zhou Yi exclaimed in astonishment at the same time, “The Ancestor of Strength, the Golden Dragon?”
Wang Dong’er nodded.
Both Huo Yuhao and Zhou Yi were even more bewildered.
Gold and Silver had special meanings amongst top-tier soul beasts. Silver represented multiple elements, or that one possessed a formidable element. Such soul beasts could evolve, or they possessed a powerful innate ability. It was similar to the Silvermoon Wolf King that Huo Yuhao had come across back then.
On the other hand, Gold represented extreme bodily strength and power. Silver soul beasts were already extremely rare, but Golden soul beasts were even more uncommon and exotic. It was hard to come by even a single one for many years, and some people had already claimed that Golden soul beasts were long extinct.
There wasn’t a single Golden soul beast amongst the known Ten Great Savage Beasts in the world of soul beasts. Amongst the known Golden soul beasts, the most reputable one was definitely this Golden Dragon.
Legend had it that the Dragon God had two children: one was the Golden Dragon who controlled strength and power, while the other was the Silver Dragon who controlled elemental laws and rules. The two of them had inherited a portion of the Dragon God’s powers.
Over the passage of time, the Golden Dragon and the Silver Dragon gave birth to offspring, and their descendants gradually formed the entire Dragon race…Previous Chapter Next Chapter
