That blue-haired youth focused his gaze, and the White Tiger Duke froze in place. At the same time, Tang Wutong suddenly hugged him tightly. “Daddy, don’t do it. The kid is innocent. Don’t harm him.”
When the blue-haired youth heard her words, the look in his eyes turned gentler. He sighed, “But, my daughter is innocent too! Who’s taking pity on you? My poor Little Seven.”
Tang Wutong bit her lower lip, “Daddy, let’s go home. I’ve missed you, and I’ve missed mommy.” As she spoke, she started to cry out loud.
“Wutong, Wutong!” Huo Yuhao only reacted from his astonishment at this moment. He wanted to leap forward, but the blue-haired youth glared at him, and he froze in place too.
After this, blue lights flashed, and the blue-haired youth and Tang Wutong turned into two projections before they vanished into the golden clouds.
A dignified voice echoed in the sky. “The Star Luo Empire must be returned, and the Sun Moon Empire must be renamed the Heaven Dou Empire. Otherwise, hmph!”
Xu Yunhan drifted in the sky, and was immediately caught by Ju Zi, who regained her mobility.
Little Yunhan wasn’t afraid. His eyes were still open wide. He was looking at this and that; he was curious. Of course he wasn’t afraid. He didn’t sense any killing intent from that blue-haired youth earlier.
Huo Yuhao suddenly turned to Ju Zi and roared furiously, “Why? Why did you say he’s my son? How can it be? How?”
Ju Zi hugged Xu Yunhan and stood up. She coldly looked at Huo Yuhao. “No matter what you believe, he’s your child. Do you really think I’d give birth for just anyone? Back then, I knew Xu Tianran wanted me to inseminate myself with someone else’s sperm. That was why I was already prepared. Do you remember when we were in the Extreme North? Just when you fell unconscious in my arms. I’m not so despicable as to take advantage of you. I only use a soul tool to steal a ‘seedling’ from you. After that, I inseminated myself with your ‘seedling’ when Xu Tianran forced me. That’s right. Yunhan is your flesh and blood. However, I have nothing to do with you. Neither does he. He’s just a product of your genes. What have you done for him?”
Huo Yuhao was stunned as he looked at Ju Zi. He also took a look at Xu Yunhan. Suddenly, he was very conflicted and emotional. No matter what, he hadn’t expected things to turn out this way.
Everything that had happened before replayed in his mind right now. He quickly recalled what had happened. Yes! He had been unconscious in Ju Zi’s arms for quite a while back then. It must have happened then. No wonder he felt so drawn to Xu Yunhan the first time he saw him.
When he thought of the moment when Xu Yunhan called him ‘Daddy’ for the first time, Huo Yuhao didn’t know what to say anymore.
Ju Zi hugged her son tightly and let her tears flow. She said coldly, “I only took your ‘seedling’. As for the harm I’ve caused to you, I can only apologize. However, what I want to tell you is this. This kid has nothing to do with you. He’s my son, and the future Emperor of the Sun Moon Empire. He’ll take the surname ‘Xu’, not yours. You should know why I was afraid that you would hurt him. If you really hurt him, you would have regretted it for the rest of your life.”
The White Tiger Duke looked at Huo Yuhao before turning to Ju Zi. Suddenly, he didn’t know what to say. Everything that had happened today was completely out of his imagination!
Huo Yuhao shut his eyes in pain. Right now, he was completely confused.
It wasn’t easy for him to undergo closed-door cultivation for three years and become an Ultimate Douluo. He even turned the situation around and prevented the Star Luo Empire from being wiped out. However, his lover had left him for something like this.
Before Tang Wutong left, the sadness that she portrayed made him feel as if someone had cut his heart out. He couldn’t even explain because he didn’t know what was going on.
Was he supposed to blame Ju Zi? He had no energy to do so anymore. He had a son, but he was still a virgin.
“Yunhan, unleash your martial soul.” Ju Zi suddenly said to Little Yunhan.
Xu Yunhan unleashed a gentle streak of soul power. This caused Huo Yuhao to reopen his eyes. The White Tiger Duke also turned his attention to him.
A white glow shone from Xu Yunhan’s body. His eyes turned brighter. What was strange was that he had two pupils in his eyes. He ballooned slightly in size, and a vertical eye silently opened on his forehead. His hair also turned half black and half white, and looked just like the patterns on a tiger’s skin.
Three-Eyed White Tiger? What kind of martial soul was this?
The White Tiger Duke was astonished when he saw the double pupils in his eyes. At this instant, he was astonished to discover that the heroism in his heart had ceased to exist. He was certain that this kid was his descendant!
Huo Yuhao also shook a little. He hadn’t inherited the White Tiger, but there were sunray patterns around the vertical eye! The aura that belonged to his Spirit Eyes and the Eye of Asura couldn’t be faked.
This kid only had one martial soul, but it contained the strength of the White Tiger and the spiritual undulations of his Spirit Eyes. It was a powerful mutated martial soul.
The surrounding golden lights slowly dimmed, and space distorted.
Xu Yunhan regained his original look and remained in his mother’s arms. He had allowed space to change, but was mostly fixated on Huo Yuhao. He was a little curious, but was also a little weirded out as he looked at him.
It was still outside Star Luo City, and it was still above the Sun Moon Empire army, but everything was frozen. Time and space had come to a complete standstill.
No matter how confused Huo Yuhao was, he could still guess the identity of his father-in-law. He had to be a god. Apart from a god, who could possibly control time and space? Originally, he had thought that he was the peak of this world. However, he was still too far off compared to his father-in-law.
So Wutong is the daughter of a god. No wonder she’s so talented.
Right now, he couldn’t think of anything more. This was because the sealed time and space were reactivated at the next instant.
No matter whether it was the army, those from Shrek Academy, the Tang Sect or the three empires, they didn’t notice anything amiss. To them, they only lost their awareness for a bit earlier. After that, everything returned to normal.
Only those who were sharp noticed that Tang Wutong was missing.
Ju Zi looked a little pale. Her son was already back in her arms. She flashed and widened the gap between her and Huo Yuhao.
Huo Yuhao looked at her weirdly. Right now, he didn’t know how to deal with the current situation.
“I’ll keep my promise. I will. This time, a god is a witness.” Ju Zi muttered.
Huo Yuhao nodded forcefully.
Ju Zi took in a deep breath and turned to the generals of the Sun Moon Empire. She shouted, “Retreat!”
The words of the blue-haired youth were deeply imprinted in her mind. Huo Yuhao also believed that she wouldn’t dare to go back on her word now that a god was their witness.
In fact, both he and Ju Zi didn’t know that the god was only saying it for the sake of saying it. As a god, he couldn’t intervene in the lower realm. Unless it involved his daughter, he couldn’t easily reveal himself.
The Sun Moon Empire army slowly retreated. After a momentary silence, cheers burst out in Star Luo City.
It was over. The war was finally over. Earlier, they still thought that they were doomed. But now, they had regained control of their destiny. They had even attained the final victory. It was a miraculous change!
Huo Yuhao drifted in mid-air and turned to the White Tiger Duke. The White Tiger Duke was also looking back at him. This iron-blooded marshal was no longer as tough as he was before. The look in his eyes was both gentle and complex. As for the Sun Moon Empire, his hatred towards them had diminished. This was because the Emperor of that empire was his own grandson! His grandson was actually in control of the biggest empire in the continent. How magical was that?
“Let’s go back.” Huo Yuhao nodded at Dai Hao.
He was already a grown-up, and a leading figure of his generation. Tang Wutong’s departure left him heartbroken. However, he had many things to deal with right now. He could only search for her after dealing with them.
A son, he actually had a son. Apart from Tang Wutong, he was also thinking about Xu Yunhan.
As he sighed, Huo Yuhao flew towards the others from the Tang Sect.
Under Bei Bei’s leadership, those from the Tang Sect quickly came up to receive Huo Yuhao. Bei Bei opened his arms wide and gave Huo Yuhao a big hug. Apart from Tang Ya, who was holding the fort in the Tang Sect, the rest were almost all here.
“Little junior, where’s Wutong? Where has Wutong gone to?” Bei Bei couldn’t help but ask after he hugged Huo Yuhao.
Huo Yuhao and Tang Wutong had disappeared for three years. They had many questions to ask.
Huo Yuhao shook his head dejectedly and said, “Something happened earlier. Once we settle things here, I’ll look for her. Eldest senior, Elder Xuan, let’s return to Star Luo City first.”
As everyone clustered around them, Huo Yuhao and the White Tiger Duke returned to Star Luo City.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
