Wang Dong’er snapped, “Don’t try to change the topic. So how?”
Huo Yuhao laughed bitterly. “I told you that was a misunderstanding? Don’t you trust my character?”
Wang Dong’er wanted to smile, but straightened her expression. “I only believe what I see.”
Huo Yuhao was helpless as he said, “About that, what do you think I should do? I’ll do whatever you want me to do.”
Wang Dong’er snorted and said, “Come in.” As she spoke, she dragged him into her room before locking the door. There were some things that shouldn’t be said outside. Her room was also pretty soundproof.
As she looked at Huo Yuhao, Wang Dong’er almost burst out laughing. This helpless-looking guy was really the guy that she liked?
“I’m here!” Huo Yuhao almost greeted her formally, and he acknowledged her words cautiously.
Wang Dong’er thought her words over before saying, “Owing to your performance last night, I decided that you are my man from today onwards. I’ll be responsible for you. Do you understand?”
“What?” Huo Yuhao’s tone varied greatly as he muttered this one word. He looked at Wang Dong’er in a daze and didn’t understand.
Wang Dong’er was furious, “What? You’ve hugged, touched, and slept with me. Are you going to shirk your responsibility? You’re my man from now on. You can’t look, like, or even touch other ladies. Do you understand?”
“Uh…” Huo Yuhao seemed to have understood her point.
Wang Dong’er was pleased as she said, “Don’t worry, I’ll treat you very well. I’ll feed you and give you water every day. You can also follow me. However, you need to listen to me. Do you understand?”
Huo Yuhao was in a daze. “Why do I feel like you’re keeping a dog instead?”
Wang Dong’er chuckled. “Yes, I am. You are the dog.”
“Aren’t you angry?” the look in Huo Yuhao’s eyes turned clearer.
Wang Dong’er straightened her expression once again. “Who said I’m not? I’m very angry!”
“Are you?” Huo Yuhao’s expression changed. He was no longer as cautious as before. He wasn’t a fool, either. Although love could make one foolish, he couldn’t possibly be relegated to the level of a dog!
“Yes! What, what are you going to do? Don’t mess around!” Wang Dong’er was shocked to realize that a certain dog was walking towards her. This dog had also turned vicious.
“Nice! Wang Dong’er, how dare you trick me! See how I’m going to deal with you!”
“Stop playing around, I’m going to shout!”
“If you’re not scared of embarrassment, then shout all you want. No one will come and save you even if you shout until you lose your voice! I have a legendary soul skill called Hungry Tiger Pouncing on its Prey!”
In the next moment, the bed became the battlefield. Huo Yuhao was given a good kick by Wang Dong’er, and he flew back onto the wall before sliding down.
As she was frightened, Wang Dong’er had kicked him forcefully. Huo Yuhao almost lost consciousness.
“Yuhao, are you alright?” Wang Dong’er was frightened and rushed to his side. She caressed his chest with an anxious look on her face. “It wasn’t intentional. Who asked you to be so naughty…?”
“I was naughty…?” Huo Yuhao’s eyes widened, and he looked at her as if she had reversed the truth. Who was the one scaring me? I was so afraid that my heart was beating extremely quickly.
“I can’t make it. My stomach is aching from your kick.” Huo Yuhao leaned on Wang Dong’er and refused to get up.
Wang Dong’er became even more anxious, “What do we do? Do I carry you to the infirmary?”
“No need. You have medicine with you. Give me some.” Huo Yuhao’s voice sounded even weaker.
“What medicine?” Wang Dong’er was stunned.
Huo Yuhao’s voice suddenly turned weird. “Magical medicine.” After he finished speaking, he suddenly hugged Wang Dong’er and tried to kiss her.
Wang Dong’er was a Soul Emperor, and her reactions were quick. When Huo Yuhao moved, she reacted immediately, and subconsciously turned around. However, it didn’t work. Her lips still met his.
When their lips met, they both froze in place.
Huo Yuhao hadn’t planned on kissing Wang Dong’er on the lips! It was accidental…
Wang Dong’er’s lips were soft and refreshing. When their lips met, Huo Yuhao felt his soul shaking. He couldn’t describe that feeling with words. Their pupils dilated at the same time, and they maintained this position for several seconds.
“Oo…” Wang Dong’er reacted first. She quickly moved back, and her face could be seen blushing red like an apple.
Huo Yuhao remained where he was, and even licked his lips.
“You!” Wang Dong’er pursed her lips. It was hard to tell if she was furious or being coquettish.
“It wasn’t deliberate…” Huo Yuhao muttered almost immediately. However, he wanted to slap himself after he spoke. Even if it wasn’t accidental, he still took advantage of her.
Indeed, Wang Dong’er raised her brows and said furiously, “Get out!”
“Dong’er, listen to me…”
Wang Dong’er didn’t give him a chance to defend himself, and dragged him to the door of her room. Huo Yuhao didn’t even struggle, and was thrown out in a matter of seconds.
Bang! The door slammed shut. Wang Dong’er leaned on the door after she closed it and held her face with her hands. She stomped on the ground with her right foot, “This idiot, he stole my first kiss just like that. So unromantic.”
Huo Yuhao was locked out, and could only scratch his head helplessly. He probably couldn’t enter her room anymore. However, he could tell that she wasn’t really angry. He was prepared to whip up some delicacies before coming back to coax her.
“Yuhao, Yuhao!” At this moment, an anxious voice sounded. Huo Yuhao turned around and saw vice-Dean Cai Mei’er walking towards him.
“No wonder I couldn’t find you. So you came here to find Dong’er. Quick, follow me!” Cai Mei’er approached him and dragged him away immediately.
Huo Yuhao was confused. “Dean Cai, what’s going on? What happened?”
Cai Mei’er replied, “You’ll know after you follow me. After we returned yesterday, I reported our findings to Elder Xuan. He was very concerned about your suggestion for soul masters to learn how to use soul tools, and asked you to report to him. Elder Song, Shaozhe and Xian Lin’er are all there. We’ll discuss it first before bringing the matter up in the Conference in the Sea God’s Pavilion. Go and prepare.”
“Alright.” Huo Yuhao’s eyes brightened. This was an important matter that he was pushing for. If he succeeded, it would be very beneficial for Shrek Academy’s future development.
The two of them came to the first level of the Sea God’s Pavilion. Indeed, Elder Xuan was seated at the conference room table with his wine gourd beside him. However, it was evident that he hadn’t drunk anything today. While he was old, he was still full of energy.
Elder Song, Xian Lin’er, Yan Shaozhe, Huo Yuhao and Cai Mei’er sat in the other seats. They constituted slightly less than half of a proper Conference of the Sea God’s Pavilion.
Everyone smiled kindly when they saw Huo Yuhao. Elder Xuan asked, “Yuhao, did you get enough rest?”
Huo Yuhao’s face was blushing slightly. Of course he had slept well. He had hugged Wang Dong’er to sleep!
“It was rather good. Thank you for your concern, Elder Xuan.”
As he spoke, he took his seat along with Cai Mei’er. Cai Mei’er sat one seat from Yan Shaozhe, whereas Huo Yuhao sat one seat from her.
Elder Xuan said, “Mei’er has already told me about what happened. It seems like there’s really going to be a huge change in the world of soul masters on the continent! First it was the Holy Ghost Church. Then the Dragon Emperor Long Xiaoyao appeared. Now it’s the three evil soul masters’ turn. I’m afraid we’re going to face more trouble in the future. But let’s forget about that for now, we’ll talk about it in the next conference. These evil soul masters can’t be resisted by ordinary Shrek Guardians anymore. We’ll have to deal with the matter prudently. Yuhao, tell me about your suggestion.”
“Yes!” Huo Yuhao acknowledged his words. “In fact, this suggestion wasn’t initially made by me, but Teacher Wang Yan. The future development of the world of soul masters is bound to involve strong soul masters developing soul tools to their fullest. I’m an experimental product of Teacher Wang. After years of learning about soul tools and increasing my cultivation, I discovered that the abilities of soul masters and soul tools are not mutually exclusive.
“The Sun Moon Empire is able to attract so many people to become soul engineers mainly because soul engineers aren’t restricted by martial souls. As long as they have soul power, they can use soul tools and become soul engineers. It’s precisely this idea that has made our idea seem deviant, too.”
“In my opinion, soul masters without strong martial souls can be considered soul engineers if they use soul tools. However, they are just basic soul engineers. They aren’t strong. They won’t be able to unleash the full power of their soul tools. In fact, it’s not only us that took a roundabout way, even the Sun Moon Empire did the same thing. They are too focused on soul tools, and have neglected the influence of a soul master on soul tools. Our Ultimate Soldier Plan has indeed made some breakthroughs, but we are unable to distinguish them clearly yet.”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
