Xu Sanshi’s body jerked. He had been together with Jiang Nannan for quite some time. However, he had always been the one taking the initiative. Jiang Nannan rarely responded to his confessions. Now that she said such words, how could he not feel surprised and shocked at the same time?
“Alright. If something like that happens, I’ll kill you first before I die with you. At least you won’t be alone.”
“Pui, pui, pui. Can the two of you not sound so inauspicious?” Xiao Xiao couldn’t help but butt in.
He Caitou touched Xiao Xiao’s head and said, “Alright, everyone calm down. Let’s prepare for the team round. Yuhao, you’ll still command the team round.”
“Alright.” Huo Yuhao was a little unsteady right now. He looked at the pale and unconscious Bei Bei as he bit his lips.
Everything was caused by the Holy Ghost Church. They made Teacher Xiao Ya like that. It’s because of them that eldest senior and Teacher Xiao Ya are in so much pain. They must pay the price!
Huo Yuhao wasn’t just a junior to Bei Bei and Tang Ya. The two of them had changed his life. Through being a member of the Tang Sect and entering Shrek Academy, he had managed to experience what a family was. He had felt warmth, he had found teachers, and gained everything that belonged to him now.
Although Huo Yuhao was one of the youngest in the Tang Sect, he was still the third person to join the sect. He was only behind Bei Bei and Tang Ya. In his heart, Bei Bei and Tang Ya were like his real siblings.
He didn’t feel any less tormented than Bei Bei after Tang Ya and Ma Xiaotao disappeared. He felt the same as Bei Bei every time he saw the loneliness in Bei Bei’s eyes.
He had developed a calm heart after going through the training of the Ultimate Soldier Plan. However, this sense of calm had merely repressed his emotional side. This repression wasn’t effective all the time, however. Once the repression was overcome, the emotions he felt became even more intense. After all, humans weren’t machines!
It was just like how he risked everything for Wang Dong’er; he didn’t care as he proceeded to the Icefire Yin Yang Well and practically exchanged his life for the medicinal herb. As he saw how sorrowful and tormented Bei Bei was, and how Tang Ya was taken away by the Scorpion Tiger Douluo, the pain that he felt slowly turned into a burning furnace of pure fury.
He had not felt such a deep hatred in a long time. He swore to himself that he would completely destroy the Holy Ghost Church one day!
His anxious expression turned cold. The training he had gone through in the Ultimate Soldier Plan was no longer able to repress his emotions. However, he was able to tolerate the fury he felt just as he was experiencing an emotional outburst.
Wang Dong’er was a little worried as she looked at Huo Yuhao. She pressed her hands against his shoulders and gently massaged them. She spent the most time with him, and was the clearest about his emotional ups and downs. She could clearly sense the cold intent that Huo Yuhao was letting out. It was obvious to her that he was infuriated!
Huo Yuhao lifted his right hand to tap Wang Dong’er’s hand. He signaled to her that he hadn’t lost control of his emotions. He slowly shut his eyes and waited for the match to begin.
Xu Sanshi carried Bei Bei away and sent him to the resting area. He passed him over to Na Na, Ji Juechen, and Jing Ziyan before returning to the waiting area.
“Despicable Holy Ghost Sect. My hatred won’t be sated unless I destroy them. Yuhao, let’s use that move!” A vicious look flashed across Xu Sanshi’s eyes.
The expressions of everyone from the Tang Sect turned cold. Bei Bei’s injury had not just angered Huo Yuhao, but all of them.
At this point, Wang Qiu’er stood up. No one from the Tang Sect expected this. She walked towards them.
This wasn’t allowed by the rules. However, no one had expected this to happen. When the staff members realized what was happening, Wang Qiu’er was already in the waiting area. She lowered her head and said a few words to Wang Dong’er and Huo Yuhao as she stood in between them.
Wang Dong’er was stunned, and twisted her head to look at her.
Huo Yuhao hesitated for a moment before looking at Wang Dong’er. Eventually, he nodded.
Wang Qiu’er revealed a persistent look. “I’m only repaying you a personal favor.”
“Okay.” Huo Yuhao didn’t feel like speaking too much at the moment.
The staff members ran over at this point.
Wang Qiu’er straightened, and glared at them coldly.
Who was this Golden Dragon Lady? She had the most supporters in this tournament, even though she came from Shrek Academy!
All the staff members stopped when she glared coldly at them. After that, they just watched as she walked back to her resting area.
However, no one noticed that there was something different about Wang Qiu’er before and after she talked to Huo Yuhao…
Fifteen minutes passed in a flash. On the stage, the five members from the Tang Sect stood up at the same time when Zheng Zhan asked the competing members from both teams to enter the stage. Wang Dong’er pushed Huo Yuhao’s wheelchair up on the stage first, and the other four followed behind. There was an austere aura subtly rising from them.
On the other side, the remaining four members of the Holy Ghost Sect also ascended the stage.
The four of them had different figures. However, they were all young men. The person in the lead had been seated at the last position earlier in the waiting area. This person was also the largest of all the Holy Ghost Sect’s team members.
He was even bigger than He Caitou, with extremely broad shoulders. As he walked in front of them, the other three were completely blocked behind him.
The four of them came to the center of the stage and faced the six from the Tang Sect. Even though they were outnumbered, the aura that they exuded didn’t seem to be inferior. They released a cold and eerie power from their bodies, and the temperature seemed to be dropping.
“Both parties, please report your names.” Zheng Zhan said. He knew that this might be the most difficult fight he was going to referee, even though there neither team was at full strength. If the ten of them fought against him, he knew that it wouldn’t be easy to defeat them, especially the four mysterious evil soul masters.
Zheng Zhan could tell that Bei Bei was able to defeat two of his opponents earlier because he had a natural element that could suppress evil soul masters. However, did the rest of the Tang Sect possess such abilities? Evil soul masters couldn’t be measured using logic.
There was once an evil soul master that had killed ten soul masters at the same cultivation level as him. There were four such evil soul masters right now. No one knew what they were capable of, because they had never appeared in the earlier rounds.
The evil soul masters that had competed in the earlier rounds were all in the resting area now. They were undoubtedly the substitutes for these last few evil soul masters onstage right now.
“Tang Sect, Huo Yuhao.” As the acting team leader, Huo Yuhao reported his name first.
“Tang Sect, He Caitou.”
“Tang Sect, Xu Sanshi.”
“Tang Sect, Jiang Nannan.”
“Tang Sect, Xiao Xiao.”
“Tang Sect, Wang Dong’er.”
The six of them used the simplest method of reporting their names. They had no intention of concealing the killing intent that came from their bodies.
The largest person from the Holy Ghost Sect said, “Holy Ghost Sect, Lu Genggeng.”
“Holy Ghost Sect, Yan Feng.”
“Holy Ghost Sect, Tang Dai.”
“Holy Ghost Sect, Gu Yu.”
Four people, four different voices. Lu Genggeng’s voice was loud and clear. This was rare among evil soul masters. Not only did he not sound eerie, he even seemed quite vibrant.
Of the three behind him, Yan Feng had the most ordinary figure. However, the aura that he exuded was the coldest and creepiest. He felt like a creepy venomous snake.
Tang Dai hid his aura the best. Just from his aura, it felt like he was an ordinary person. Huo Yuhao couldn’t even sense any soul power undulations from his body. He was quite tall, only half a head shorter than Lu Genggeng, but quite scrawny.
Gu Yu was very stocky. His shoulders were almost as broad as Lu Genggeng’s, but his height reached just past Lu Genggeng’s waist.
As the four of them stood there, the first feeling that they gave off was... unevenly matched.
“Both parties, please withdraw and prepare for the start of the fight,” Zheng Zhan instructed them.
The ten of them turned around at almost the same time and walked towards their respective sides of the stage.
As they moved, Huo Yuhao activated his Spiritual Detection. He also used his Imitation to conceal his soul rings.
With his Spiritual Detection, Huo Yuhao naturally didn’t need to use words to communicate with his teammates.
On the other side, the four evil soul masters didn’t seem to interact with one another at all. They weren’t rushing, either. They also walked slowly over to their side of the stage.
Zheng Zhan lifted his right hand as both parties reached their respective sides of the stage. It was a sign to everyone that they should prepare for the match to begin.
The Tang Sect quickly set up their formation. They did it differently from the previous rounds. This time, Xu Sanshi wasn’t in front, He Caitou was. Xiao Xiao was on the left in the second row, while Jiang Nannan was on the right. Xu Sanshi was standing behind Wang Dong’er.
Wang Dong’er and Huo Yuhao were in the back row. The six of them formed a very weird cross shape with everyone standing in front of Xu Sanshi!Previous Chapter Next Chapter
