Volume 33, Chapter 439.2: Wutong, Fuse?

After sitting for a short while, Huo Yuhao stood up and walked out of his tent

It was already the middle of the night. Although he was fatigued from rushing the whole day, he wasn’t overly drained, given that he held an immense power of life inside. But he looked a little dazed as he walked towards a tent beside his. Tang Wutong was in that tent.

Dai Yueheng didn’t know that she was Tang Wutong instead of Wang Dong’er. In his heart, he thought that Wang Dong’er and Huo Yuhao were a couple. When he arranged the tents, he naturally arranged for the both of them to be together.

Dong’er, are you asleep?, Huo Yuhao silently thought to himself.

After he was distracted by the White Tiger Duke earlier, and after Xu Sanshi talked to him, he really wanted someone to confide in right now. Naturally, the person that he looked to was the person he loved the most.

He slowly walked towards Tang Wutong’s tent. When he reached her tent, he stopped for a moment and hesitated. After this, he gently slapped the curtains of the tent.

The curtains were made of cloth, and thus not much sound was made. However, it was enough for soul masters, who had good hearing.

Tang Wutong’s voice sounded. “Who is it?”

“Wutong, are you asleep?” Huo Yuhao asked softly.

Tang Wutong was silent for a moment, then said, “It’s already so late. What are you doing here?”

Huo Yuhao replied, “I have something to discuss with you regarding our reconnaissance mission tomorrow night. If it’s not convenient, I’ll talk to you tomorrow.”

Tang Wutong answered without any hesitation, “Then let’s leave it for tomorrow. I don’t want to know your secret, and I’m not interested in being your confidante.”

Huo Yuhao was slightly stunned, and found it a little amusing. It turned out that she believed Huo Yuhao had listened to Xu Sanshi’s words and was treating her as his confidante.

He was a little helpless as he shook his head and said, “Rest, then. Goodnight.”

After he finished speaking, he walked towards his own tent. There was a lost look on his face. How good would it be if she were still Dong’er. At least I could still get some comfort while being in her soft and warm embrace. My Dong’er, when will you return?

As he thought until here, Huo Yuhao was a little confused. Why can I sense Qiu’er, apart from just Dong’er, in Tang Wutong’s body?

Just as he walked towards his own tent, he heard something. Huo Yuhao subconsciously turned around and saw Tang Wutong, who had already switched into a long white dress, standing in front of her tent.

The moon was very beautiful tonight. The bright moonlight made her appear very quiet and calm as it fell on her, whereas her pinkish-blue hair and eyes were the most beautiful ornaments int this bright night.

Tang Wutong looked at Huo Yuhao calmly and said, “On account of your baked bun, I’ll let you speak. However, I’m only letting you speak until one incense stick finishes burning.”

Even though Huo Yuhao knew that she had misunderstood him and thought that he wanted to confide in her, he still immediately walked over in front of her. He would never give up on any opportunity to get closer to Tang Wutong.

“Hey, don’t get so close.” Seeing that Huo Yuhao was almost a meter in front of her, Tang Wutong quickly raised her hand and warned him from getting any closer.

Huo Yuhao stopped and watched the wary look in Tang Wutong’s eyes. He was a little dazed, and subconsciously said, “Dong’er, you’re beautiful.”

Tang Wutong was stunned for a moment. After this, she furrowed her brow, glared and shouted furiously, “Who is your Dong’er? Hmph!” After she finished speaking, she turned around and wanted to enter her own tent.

Huo Yuhao only reacted at this moment. He rushed to stretch his hand out and grabbed her wrist. He anxiously said, “I’m sorry, I got the wrong person. It’s perhaps because I miss her too much.”

Tang Wutong twisted her head and coldly said, “Let go.”

At this instant, the expression in her eyes caused Huo Yuhao to be stunned once again. The cold look and tone in her voice were just like Wang Qiu’er when he saw her for the first time!

Huo Yuhao was confused once again. Dong’er, Qiu’er, Dong’er, Qiu’er. These two names kept on alternating in his mind. Everything was too difficult to understand right now. Her condition is obviously like Dong’er, but her actions and words remind me of both Dong’er and Qiu’er.

Dong’er’s beauty, kindness, vibrancy and cuteness, but also Qiu’er’s aloofness. When they combine, it seems like Tang Wutong is a completely different person.

Huo Yuhao subconsciously let go of her hand and was a little tormented as he lowered his head. He said, “I’m sorry, I recognized the wrong person. You look too alike to my lover. That’s why…”

“It’s okay, you don’t have to explain anymore. I’ve heard such words many times before. There’s still two-thirds of the incense stick left. If you’ve something to say, please hurry up. But I don’t want to listen to what happened between you and your ex-girlfriends.”

“Ex-girlfriends? My only lover is Dong’er…”

Tang Wutong was a little rushed as she interrupted him, “I already told you that I don’t want to listen to any of that.”

“Alright.” Huo Yuhao couldn’t adapt to her coldness and assertiveness. However, he soon got over it.

“I’m not actually here to confide in you. I can settle my own problems. I don’t need to burden anyone with my personal problems.”

Tang Wutong was a little doubtful as she asked, “Then what are you finding me for?”

Huo Yuhao was serious as he replied, “Wutong, when I saw you for the first time, there’s another reason why I mistook you for someone else. It was because I could sense that your soul power was very close to mine. It seems like it can fuse with mine.”

“It can fuse with yours?” Tang Wutong retracted the cold look on her face and appeared a little pensive. “Are you saying that our martial souls can fuse? How is that possible? The tier of your martial soul is so low. It can’t be possible that we can fuse.”

Huo Yuhao was a little speechless as he said, “I have twin martial souls! One of them is even of Ultimate Ice! How is it possible that it’s too low?”

Tang Wutong lifted her head and flicked her hair before saying, “It’s just low.” Her pampered behavior made her seem more domineering, but in a good way.

Huo Yuhao was a little helpless as he replied, “Alright, it’s low. However, I really feel that our martial souls can fuse. Can we give it a try? If possible, we might be able to increase our fighting strength greatly in future missions. We are both Soul Sages. When two Soul Sages unleash a fusion skill, along with your strong martial soul, the effect will undoubtedly be very great.”

Tang Wutong creased her eyebrows slightly and asked, “How do you want to try it, then?”

Huo Yuhao answered, “Simple. I just need to place my palm on yours. After that, we’ll just need to try connecting our soul power. If our martial souls can fuse, our soul power will fuse first.”

Tang Wutong was a little doubtful as she looked at him and asked, “You’re not doing this just to get close to me, right?”

Huo Yuhao laughed bitterly. “Am I that stupid? There are plenty of reasons I could have used if that were the case. Why would I use the thing that’s the most improbable? I really think that our martial souls can fuse. Let’s try? If you’re still doubtful, we can do it outside your tent. We don’t have to enter your tent.”

Tang Wutong hesitated for a moment when she saw the patrol guards that had just walked past before saying, “We can try, but we shall void the bet that I just made with you today. If you agree to this, I’ll let you enter my tent and give it a go.”

Huo Yuhao didn’t even hesitate, and nodded. “Okay, it’s a deal.”

Huo Yuhao didn’t claim anything after Xu Sanshi beat Ji Juechen earlier, but Tang Wutong remembered their bet. She didn’t want to owe him anything, and thus she proposed this idea.

When Huo Yuhao first suggested the bet, he was doing it for this! Using martial soul fusion to find out whether Tang Wutong was Wang Dong’er was the most direct and reliable method. Perhaps he could even use martial soul fusion to tell if she was Wang Qiu’er.

Of course, Huo Yuhao didn’t believe that she was Wang Qiu’er. After all, Wang Qiu’er had already sacrificed herself, and her body had disappeared. His skull bone was even given to him by Wang Qiu’er.

Tang Wutong said, “Alright, follow me in then. Remember, don’t even think of trying anything funny. Otherwise, you’ll regret it.” As she spoke, she walked into her tent.

Huo Yuhao quickly followed her. Right now, he was very tense. This was because this was very important to him. If Tang Wutong’s martial soul couldn’t fuse with his, it was likely that she wasn’t Wang Dong’er! That was not something that Huo Yuhao hoped for either!

After walking into the tent, Tang Wutong pointed to the ground and stated, “Let’s do it on the ground.” As she spoke, she retrieved a mat from her storage-type soul tool and placed it on the ground. She sat on it and pointed to the ground in front of her.

Huo Yuhao nodded and sat down in front of her.

Tang Wutong lifted her hands and said coldly, “Let’s start.”

Huo Yuhao was evidently a little tense. However, if he didn’t try, he wouldn’t be relieved at all. It was important for him to find out who Tang Wutong was.

He took a deep breath, and circulated his soul power. Under the command of his spiritual power, it started surging in his body.

Huo Yuhao lifted his hands and gently pressed them against Tang Wutong’s palms.

As their eyes met, it was obvious that the look in Tang Wutong’s eyes was very cold, whereas Huo Yuhao looked very passionate.

Dong’er, she must be Dong’er!

As he thought, Huo Yuhao slowly summoned his Mysterious Heaven Technique and poured it into Tang Wutong’s body.

Tang Wutong didn’t resist, and allowed Huo Yuhao’s soul power to enter her body. After that, she summoned her own soul power. Huo Yuhao’s soul power was blocked by a passageway in her forearms.
