Chapter 23 – Dying Bright in the Gold Road (II)

Part 2

Huo Yuhao withdrew his hand as quick as lightning after a slight touch. He was shocked. When he came in contact with that golden color, he felt as if his mind turned chaotic. A powerful wave appeared in his sea of consciousness. That feeling was like being hit by Soul Assault.

“This, this is the result of our Spirit Fusion Skill? You try it.” Huo Yuhao quickly turned toward Wang Dong.

Wang Dong was already extremely curious and quickly touched the golden trench.

His reaction was even greater than Huo Yuhao’s. His entire body went lifeless and couldn’t recover for quite a few moments.

They looked at each other and saw the shock in each other’s eyes.

“This, this is too fierce. This is only the remnant of our Spirit Fusion Skill, yet I felt as if I was hit by your Soul Assault ability. What would happen if someone were to be hit directly?” Wang Dong’s voice shook with excitement. There isn’t a single Spirit Master who doesn’t hope to have such a powerful skill.

Huo Yuhao said, “Look, the range of this attack should be around fifty meters in a straight line. Right now, we still don’t know if we can lock on to the opponent. The power really is humongous and should be both destructive and mental attribute. It probably raised our attack power by many times. To hit someone with this straight on, the power…”

Wang Dong nodded with excitement, “Also, the Spirit Fusion Skill’s power will increase as our cultivation increases! Our Spirit Fusion Skill really is domineering. If we meet the net of those Lan Sisters again, we would definitely be able to break through!”

Huo Yuhao was just as excited but he appeared more calm, “Wang Dong, how do you think we should use our Battle Spirit Fusion Skill? I don’t think a Spirit Elder can withstand this kind of power!”

Wang Dong’s face stiffed, “That is a problem. For the power to be too big is difficult. Also, we can only use it once so we can’t use it to scare people. We would faint after we use it.”

Huo Yuhao responded, “The experience from this first experiment is not enough. We would probably expend less energy next time. But we would still only have enough for a single attack. A powerful skill like this is still a good thing. We can practice it a few times later and it will get better as we’re more used to it.”

Wang Dong said, “Next time Ma Xiaotao tries to bully us, we can use it on her. With her cultivation, it probably won’t kill her so we can use it to show her our strength.”

“Our powerful Spirit Fusion Skill should have a name. Since my error in judgment made you sleep in the wilderness for a night, I’ll give you the honor of naming it.”

Wang Dong accepted without hesitation, “Okay. What should I call it? How about Death Stare?”

Before Huo Yuhao could open his mouth, Wang Dong had already rejected it, “No, no. This is a Spirit Fusion Skill from both of us. How can we not include a trait from my Battle Spirit? Let’s call it, Bright Goddess Glare. So cool.”

Huo Yuhao looked at him speechless, “Your Bright Goddess Butterfly is a bright goddess? That was supposed to describe a butterfly as pretty as a goddess that can bring light. Before questioning the existence of a bright goddess, even if there is, it still doesn’t have anything to do with you.”

Wang Dong’s face darkened, “Why can’t you say something nice? Do you want it to be called Butterfly Glare? Doesn’t that sound even worse?”

Suddenly, his eyes brightened, “Oh right, even though it is a Spirit Fusion Skill, why do we have to include our Battle Spirit? That is too boring. For such a gorgeous golden color, and the radiance produced with our Battle Spirit Fusion, why don’t we call it: Fading in Radiance, Road of Gold. How about that?”

Huo Yuhao’s eyes widened, “That name sounds good, but isn’t it too long?”

Wang Dong proudly said, “The longer length shows our power. We can simplify it to Golden Road. Not like other people will know what it is. Later, we can call Teacher Zhou here and have her help us judge the power and effect of this Fading in Radiance, Road of Gold. This way, we can have a more accurate expectation for when we use it.”

When Wang Dong said the words “Teacher Zhou” Huo Yuhao suddenly felt chills going down his spine. He turned his head to look at the rising sun.

Wang Dong was also reminded by this sudden movement and also thought of something. They looked at each other and screamed at the same time before breaking out in a run.

Going to be late again…., and this time, it is for an elimination match, to be late again….

In order to return to Shrek Academy with the greatest speed, they held hands to use HaoDong Power. Not only was their energy expenditure low, it also let them have a higher average speed.

Fortunately, they weren’t too far and it didn’t take them very long to get back. But they were still late.

Outside of the examination area stood a row of the academy’s teachers. Around thirty people, including old lady Zhou Yi.

Her gaze right now was not friendly. Even after looking through nearly two hundred students standing below her, she still couldn’t find the people she was looking for.

Xiao Xiao had arrived early and waited in frustration. Registration had already begun. And it started with Class One. However, Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong were not there. If they still have not arrived by the end of the registration period, then it will count as a forfeit. Not only would it be missing a great opportunity but they would also have to endure the fury from Teacher Zhou! For someone like their teacher, Xiao Xiao would probably end up suffering as well.

What are those two guys doing? They were late yesterday, now they’re doing it again today?

Class One had the greatest number of participating students so their roll call time was also the longest. When it reached Xiao Xiao’s group, other than Xiao Xiao answering, neither Huo Yuhao nor Wang Dong answered. When this happened, not only was the entire freshman student body shocked, but even the teachers were just as shocked.

In Shrek Academy’s history, this was not the first, but it was still a very rare event. Even if they had passed the Freshman Examination, if they don’t appear for the elimination contest, they would be considered to be defying the academy and leave a bad impression on all the teachers.

The roll call teacher paused a moment before continuing calling out names from other classes. It wasn’t until Class Six that Huo YUhao and Wang Dong appeared.

The two were in a hurry, and also slept in the wilderness, so they didn’t get a chance to wash up in the morning. They looked as embarrassing as possible with an untidy appearance and hints of dirt and dew on their clothes.

However, since things have already progressed to this point, they could only bite the bullet. It’s not like they can actually forfeit!
