Not only did the Three Lives Soul Sealing Cauldron arrive quickly, it was also very sudden, and the three agility type Spirit Masters did not get the chance to use any spirit abilities. To everyone watching, it was remarkable that Xiao Xiao could split her attention in three different tasks. The three separated parts were able to release their spirit abilities at suitable times when the opponents rapidly approached at different speeds.
Xiao Xiao let them see a shocking scene. Three roars sounded and three Cauldron Tremors activated in different locations.
All of them were activated when they collided with the agility Spirit Masters. The three agility Spirit Masters were stunned as their bodies bounced away. They did not have the ability to change their bodies like strength type Spirit Masters and were stunned for much longer than Huang Chutian in the previous fight. Three Three Lives Soul Sealing Cauldrons chased after them and collided against them once again.
“Pong, pong, pong.” In three directions, they met their opponents. In three directions, they triumphed. Three figures were hit out of the field.
Three rays of black light rose again and became one above Xiao Xiao’s head before disappearing as she retracted her Battle Spirit.
The field was completely silent. With Xiao Xiao as the main force, this win was even more shocking than the previous. The entire battle lasted less than half a minute. With only her own power, Xiao Xiao took on three agility types as opponents and didn’t let a single one charge past the half field point. She fought them in three different locations and won in all three.
Wang Yan had personally seen all of Team Huo Yuhao’s previous battles. In his heart, the strongest in this team was obviously Wang Dong, the mysterious was Huo Yuhao and even though Xiao Xiao’s Battle Spirit was pretty good, it was half support, half control and fell below the others.
But in this one instant, Xiao Xiao’s power proved to Wang Yan that she also held an important position in this team. Wang Yan couldn’t have imagined that an eleven year old girl could be so calm on the battlefield and accurately determine every opponent’s path to counter. Even a four-ring control type Spirit Ancestor may not be able to accomplish such smooth transitions from defending, control and retreat. How did this little girl accomplish it?
The other teams had thought that they finally had a chance with Huo Yuhao’s team greatly exhausting their Spirit Power. But it turned out that their group had two people who could fight against opponents solo! Way too strong.
However, the overall weaker Team Huang Chutian was not so lucky. Even though the Lan sisters woke from their coma, they still had splitting headaches and also lacked Spirit Power so they couldn’t enter the field. Huang Chutian could only continue the competition by himself.
Huang Chutian had greatly expended his Spirit Power before and was injured by Wang Dong’s Guillotine Wings. Also, in a one versus three, everyone’s attention was focused on him. Before, Xiao Xiao also fought one versus three but had Huo Yuhao’s help in the back and distracted the opponents’ attention.
Because of this, Huang Chutian was in a tragic state. After enduring the second match for a while, he was defeated and let his team receive a second loss.
The rest of the matches, for Huo Yuhao’s trio, entered a virtuous cycle. No one wanted to fight against them directly to save their strength against others. In the next three rounds, they won very easily. By the time the fourth round started, Wang Dong’s Spirit Power had almost completely recovered. With him and Xiao Xiao standing in front of Huo Yuhao, the opponents only pretended to resist before admitting defeat.
In the end, as representatives of class one, Team Huo Yuhao won all ten matches in the round robin stage and received the highest grade in their district.
Huang Chutian’s team still had a strong foundation. After losing two rounds in a row, the Lan sisters recovered a little and re-entered the battlefield to allow Huang Chutian to reveal his overpowering strength once again. Against exhausted opponents in the next three matches, they were finally able to continuously obtain victories and obtained the score of seven wins in ten matches. Entering the top 64 shouldn’t be a big problem.
With the end of the round robin matches, Wang Yan couldn’t control himself anymore.
“Huo Yuhao, you three stay a little.” The rest of the teams went back to rest but Huo Yuhao’s trio were told to remain.
“Teacher Wang.” Huo Yuhao arrived in front of Wang Yan.
Wang Yan nodded and smiled. “Congratulations for your complete victory in the Freshman Examination round robin matches. There is probably less than ten teams who can obtain a score like this. You guys are really powerful. But, I have been wondering, Huo Yuhao, as team captain, what is your Battle Spirit? Even though I can’t see what you did in battle, I believe that you are this team’s score. I am not mistaken, right?”
Huo Yuhao paused a moment then shyly responded, “You flatter me Teacher Wang. The reason we were able to obtain such a good score is because of Wang Dong and Xiao Xiao’s great potentials. I am simply a ride-along. You have seen that I only have a ten-year spirit ring.”
Wang Yan smiled, “You don’t need to be so modest. If you didn’t have enough strength, I don’t think Wang Dong and Xiao Xiao would let you be the leader. Also, I have investigated your performance in the last three months. Do you know what other students call you?”
Huo Yuhao paused and shook his head.
“They call you ‘Iron-willed Yuhao’ because you have a determination as hard as iron. Even though your potential is lacking, you tried the hardest and became class one’s role model. However, I couldn’t find out what your Battle Spirit is, so I wanted to see your Battle Spirit and spirit ability to prove my own abilities. I can’t help but admit that I lost. From start to finish, I still could not figure out what your Battle Spirit is. And I could not discover what spirit ability you used. I could see your white, ten-year spirit ring glow every battle but not see what the effects of your spirit ability was. Can you help me clear this mystery?”
Huo Yuhao responded, “Teacher Wang, my Battle Spirit is Spirit Eyes, a mental attribute Battle Spirit. As for my spirit ability, please let me keep it a secret. We will still have more matches in the examination.” His Battle Spirit is not a great secret in the Academy, and there were many who knew about it. If this Teacher Wang really wanted to know, then he was bound to find out. So why be so stingy? As for spirit ability, he did not want to say more.
“Spirit Eyes? Your Battle Spirit is Spirit Eyes?” Wang Yan’s reaction was much more extreme than Huo Yuhao had imagined. After hearing Huo Yuhao’s explanation, he was so emotional that he almost jumped up, and he looked at Huo Yuhao with a face full of excitement.
Huo Yuhao blanked, “Teacher Wang, why are you so excited?”
Wang Yan grabbed his shoulders with both hands, “Tell me first, is your Battle Spirit your eyes?”
Huo Yuhao nodded, “Yes!”
Wang Yan breathed in deeply with a nervous attitude, “Then are you part of the Body Clan?”
“Body Clan? Teacher Wang, I have never heard of it.”
A touch of ecstasy blossomed in Wang Yan’s eyes as he released Huo Yuhao, “Wonderful. This is wonderful. Haha. I can’t imagine that our Shrek Academy would gain such a great bargain. No wonder your ten-year spirit ring can have such a huge effect. So it was a body type Battle Spirit. Too bad. If you came to the academy earlier, then no matter what, I would at least help you get a first spirit ring that reached your limits!”
Seeing Wang Yan’s ecstatic attitude, Huo Yuhao couldn’t help but look toward Wang Dong and Xiao Xiao. Before, he and Wang Dong had already encountered the unreasonable Evil Fire Pheonix, Ma Xiaotao. Teacher Wang had been very normal before but how did he suddenly become like this? This made Huo Yuhao remember Teacher Xiao Ya and Elder Brother’s words. In Shrek Academy, there were not many monster students left but still has quite a few monster teachers.
Wang Yan breathed in deeply and calmed the shock and happiness in his heart. “Okay. Huo Yuhao, you guys go back and rest. I will come find you later.” Right after, he turned and quickly left.
Watching his figure, Xiao Xiao said in a low voice, “Could this teacher be sick?”
Huo Yuhao frowned and said, “Don’t talk about a teacher like this.”
Wang Dong came next to Huo Yuhao and said, “He probably lost his composure because of your Body Battle Spirit. I heard at home before that there were very few people who possessed body type Battle Spirits, but I have never heard of the Body Clan.”
Huo Yuhao shook his head and smiled. “Whatever. I think Teacher Wang will probably come find me later. Shouldn’t we celebrate after obtaining a complete victory? Let me treat you guys to some good food at the cafeteria.”
Xiao Xiao eagerly said, “Maybe not the cafeteria. Class President, I still haven’t tried your roast fish. No matter what, you need to fulfill this small desire of mine today.”
Huo Yuhao laughed. “No problem. It’s still early. Lets go back to the dorm and rest a bit, then meet in front of the dormitory door at night. Since we shouldn’t have anything important tomorrow, let us rest a bit before the start of the elimination matches.”
The three returned to the dormitory together. Xiao Xiao went upstairs. For the male students, female dorms were a forbidden zone.
Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong returned to their room together. What surprised him was that Wang Dong seemed to have something important on his mind.
“What’s wrong, Wang Dong? What are you thinking about?” Huo Yuhao sat on the bed and asked.
Wang Dong said gravely, “Yuhao, I am thinking about what happened in our first match today. Even though my thousand-year spirit ability has an incredible power, the opponent still used a Battle Spirit Fusion Skill! That time, I felt your Mental Detection and Sharing become concentrated and detected the interior area of their fusion skill but didn’t share it to me. Right after, their spirit dissipated. What did you do?”
As he said this, he lifted his head and looked at Huo Yuhao with shining eyes.
Huo Yuhao’s heart jumped. He knew that it would be hard to sneak it past Wang Dong. He was different from Teacher Wang Yan. They have been cultivating together for a long time as roommates and they understood each other very well. It may be possible to get past him with a lie, but it would definitely make Wang Dong hold a grudge against him.
So, Huo Yuhao didn’t answer him immediately but hesitated and thought deeply.
Of course he can’t tell the truth. The existence of the million-year Spirit Beast, Daydream Iceworm, is too shocking. No matter who it is, such information would cause unforeseeable consequences. If he tells Wang Dong the truth, it might hurt him later. But, what should he do if he doesn’t tell the truth?
Suddenly, four characters flashed through Huo Yuhao’s mind. Eyes brightening, he thought of an idea.
“Wang Dong,” Huo Yuhao lifted his head, showing his eyes with seriousness.
Wang Dong had never seen Huo Yuhao like this and suddenly widened his eyes, “Could it be that you have some kind of trump card?”
Huo Yuhao stared into his eyes and couldn’t help but blanked a moment because Wang Dong’s eyes were just too beautiful. Long eyelashes curled up; a pair of dark, wide eyes that showed only a little white at the sides; the curious gaze made his eyes seem as if they could talk.
Huo Yuhao sighed in his heart. No wonder so many female students were mesmerized by him. He really did look good!
“It can’t be counted as a trump card. It’s a secret of a body type Battle Spirit. I had only discovered it recently.” Huo Yuhao said with a low voice.
Wang Dong was surprised, “A body type Battle Spirit secret?”
Huo Yuhao nodded. “You just said before that body type Battle Spirits are very rare. The reality is just as you said. Also, our body type Battle Spirits have something special. Since I started cultivating the Tang Clan’s Purple Demon Eye, I found that my Spirit Eyes seemed to have began changing. When I focus my Mental Detection and Sharing in a single direction, if I want, I concentrate my mental power into a single point and strike out with it like a mental attack. I tried it against small animals within the academy and it really worked. I was really pressured today, so I tried it during battle. I didn’t know that the effect would be this good either. Maybe the Battle Spirit Fusion Skill Lan Susu and Lan Luoluo used was originally weak and was weakened even more by your thousand-year spirit ability. Then it was hit by my Purple Demon Eye’s mental attack and collapsed. However, their coma probably doesn’t have anything to do with me. Remember in class, teacher had said that battle spirit fusion exhausts a lot of energy, so after using it, there would usually be a rebound. The more powerful the Battle Spirit Fusion Skill, the stronger the rebound. Even the lightest rebound would still cause severe weakness. Since they used their Battle Spirit Fusion today, I estimate that they probably won’t be able to use it again for a while.”
Wang Dong’s eyes widened, “So you mean that due to the effects of Purple Demon Eye, you are now able to directly release a mental assault like a spirit ability?”
Huo Yuhao put a finger on his lips. “Be quiet. Do you want other people to know? This is my biggest secret and I still told you.”
From a certain perspective, what Huo Yuhao said was not a lie. Of course, it was also not the whole truth. It’s all because the existence of a million-year Spirit Beast is too shocking. Now that he found a suitable source for his Soul Assault, Huo Yuhao relaxed. He knew that along with studying in Shrek Academy, there will be many different types of examinations in the future. To deal with them, he wouldn’t be able to keep Soul Assault hidden. Since it was inevitable that he will reveal it, he might as well use what he just told Wang Dong, which is more than perfect.
Wang Dong looked at Huo Yuhao with shock, “A body type Battle Spirit can be this powerful? It can even evolve its own ability.”
Huo Yuhao scratched his head, “This isn’t much. Your Bright Goddess Butterfly can naturally fly. It can also increase the height you can fly as your cultivation increases. This type of innate ability should be a Battle Spirit’s natural characteristic.”
Wang Dong thought a moment,”No, not the same. You’re right, my Bright Goddess Butterfly’s flying ability is innate. But your mental assault attack is because it evolved after coming in contact with Purple Demon Eyes. It means as a body type Battle Spirit, a variant Battle Spirit, your Spirit Eyes has a natural ability to evolve. This is something my Bright Goddess Butterfly can never compare to. Maybe in the future, you will be able to evolve another ability.”
Huo Yuhao laughed, “It really can’t be counted as an ability. The more accurate description should be that my Spirit Eyes can continuously increase my mental power and create an effect using my mental power with the support of Purple Demon Eye.”
Wang Dong nodded, “If you say it like this, then I understand. Just like how my Spirit Power can be purified and compressed to attack and defend. It’s just that your mental power has no shape and no expression so it is harder to discover when you use it. I didn’t think that it would have this magical effect.”
With the doubts in his heart answered, Wang Dong showed a sign of relief within his pair of beautiful and big eyes. However, he became excited quickly once again and said: “Huo Yuhao, that pair of twins’ Battle Spirit Fusion Skill was really strong. Even if we had three rings, I’m afraid we would still have lost today! Although Batte Spirit Fusion Skill can’t last for long, it’s still immensely powerful, with a strong erupting power. It can be said to be the top-notch ability of Spirit Masters. As their Spirit Power increases in the future, their skill will be able to last even longer. Then, it would be very difficult for someone of the same level to defeat them. It would be good if we also had this kind of skill.”
Hu Yuhao laughed and said, “Stop dreaming. How can we be so lucky? I still remember teacher saying before that Battle Spirit Fusion Skill requires both parties’ Battle Spirits to have extremely high compatibility in order for it to appear. Not a single one may have it among a thousand. In cases where two people’s Battle Spirits have high compatibility, when the two parties meet there would be a reaction to some extent. We have lived together for three months. Did you experience a resonating feeling with me? In any case, I haven’t.”
What surprised him was that Wang Dong lowered his head after hearing this, as if thinking of something. Moreover, his face somewhat reddened a bit.
“What happened?” Huo Yuhao probingly asked.
Wang Dong seemed to have made up his mind and once more began to raise his head. He carried an odd expression as he looked at Huo Yuhao. He stated seriously, “Since you have even told me your Body Spirit’s secret, it wouldn’t be right for me to continue hiding the truth. In fact, my ability has always been somewhat hidden as well as my aura.”
“Eh?”This time it was Huo Yuhao’s turn to be shocked. Wang Dong’s strength was obvious to all. The Bright Goddess Butterfly’s great power had already fully displayed in the Freshman Examination. In ten matches, even Wang Dong’s second spirit ability was only used once, just with no one seeing what it looked like. Right now, he was unexpectedly saying that he still had a hidden strength. How can this not shock Huo Yuhao?
Wang Dong said, “Although you can’t perceive my body’s aura, I felt very close to yours when you first used Mental Detection and Sharing. The reason why my body’s aura doesn’t disperse beyond the scope of my body is because it’s receiving the restriction of my body’s other power. Only by keeping close to my body can you truly perceive the existence of my aura. Do you want to try?”
“Keeping our bodies together? How?” Huo Yuhao dim-wittedly asked.
Wang Dong suddenly became angry, “Idiot. Hugging should be enough right?”
Huo Yuhao gave a chuckle and said, “So it’s like this! You should’ve said so. Do we have to undress?”
“No need!” Wang Dong got a shock.
Huo Yuhao laughed and said, “Then come.” While saying so, he naturally opened his arms like he was going to embrace Wang Dong.
Wang Dong was somewhat dazed. He watched as Huo Yuhao came closer and closer. He didn’t have a bit of Huo Yuhao’s willingness. His body unconsciously tightened and his entire person seemed to have entered a special kind of stiff mode.
Huo Yuhao very naturally hugged Wang Dong. In his eyes, this was a hug between friends. Wasn’t this very normal? However, when he really hugged Wang Dong, his feelings somewhat changed.
He suddenly recalled that this was the first time that they had come in contact so intimately. He once more remembered seeing Wang Dong’s figure before.
Originally, he had been under the impression that since everyone was a Spirit Master and was diligently training their physical capability and Spirit Power everyday, Wang Dong’s body should be like his. Buff and full of muscle.
However, when he actually hugged Wang Dong, it was completely different from what he had imagined. Although Wang Dong’s body had elasticity, it was also extremely soft. Unexpectedly having a soft and seemingly boneless feel. Moreover, his body also had a faint and fragrant smell. Their heights were about the same. Huo Yuhao was hugging Wang Dong with his face at the side of his neck. His mind wavered as his chin reached Wang Dong’s slender neck, giving him a smooth and sleek feel.
Huo Yuhao really wanted to sigh, but he also felt that something wasn’t right. With his age, he was still quite lacking with regards to knowledge in some fields. He also didn’t think too much of it and only thought that hugging Wang Dong was even more comfortable than he had imagined.
“How are you feeling?” Wang Dong almost stammered. He didn’t hug back but rather let Huo Yuhao hug him. His and Huo Yuhao’s feelings were different. Huo Yuhao’s body was very firm and also had a masculine smell. There was a slight bit of a faint, juvenile smell of sweat. This kind of experience made Wang Dong’s beautiful face blush a deep red.
“Pretty good. Very comfortable.” Huo Yuhao subconsciously answered as he truly felt.
Wang Dong blanked and his stiff expression suddenly became angry. “Idiot, did I let you hug me to feel comfortable? I was letting you sense my Battle Spirit’s aura.”
“Uh… I forgot. Let me hug you a little longer and I’ll try.” Although Huo Yuhao felt somewhat embarrassed, he immediately tightened his embrace.
When Wang Dong felt Huo Yuhao use more strength, he subconsciously let out a croon and wanted to push him away, but resisted. His hands grasped Huo Yuhao’s clothes along the waist and he closed his mouth tightly as if full of grievances.
Huo Yuhao slowly gathered his own Spirit Power while closely feeling Wang Dong’s aura. However, when he hugged Wang Dong tighter, his first feeling was the deepening of a fragrance. Wang Dong’s body seemed to have tightened but was still very soft.
Gradually, Huo Yuhao finally sensed the fluctuating aura of Wang Dong’s body. It was a rich and radiant kind of aura. It was comfortably warm and it stimulated the Spirit Power in his body to slowly circulate. It was an indescribable comfortableness. What made him even more surprised was that within this layer of fluctuating, radiant aura was an even stronger life aura. Afterwards, there was a type of thick, calm aura.
Wang Dong’s aura unexpectedly changed three times in succession, but every time it changed, it made his feelings of intimacy strengthen a bit. When he could feel the last change in the aura in Wang Dong’s body, the Spirit Power in his body was surprisingly already beginning to autonomously circulate along Mysterious Heaven Skill’s paths.
This, this is……
Huo Yuhao slowly widened his eyes and Wang Dong was equally surprised. After being hugged tightly by Huo Yuhao, Wang Dong’s body seemed to produce a layer of faint golden current, then this layer of faint gold gradually changed to blue-gold and, at last, became dark gold.
The color also changed three times; like the mysterious fluctuation Huo Yuhao felt after his aura changed three times.
Wang Dong was much more experienced than Huo Yuhao. Huo Yuhao could only feel his aura but Wang Dong observed everything. He found that Huo Yuhao’s body had also started glowing. First, a faint white current, warm, deep, and carried a great tolerance to change. When his own aura came in contact with this white aura, he felt an indescribable comfortableness. Huo Yuhao’s aura seemed to cover everything and fused with his own aura perfectly.
Right after, Huo Yuhao’s aura started to change as well. The deep and soft aura gradually began to cool. A faint, ice feeling flowed out of him but was filled with an infinite life force. It perfectly fused with Wang Dong’s life aura. Even though one is the life aura from nature and the other, an infinite and ancient frost, they both shared an endless life which let them fuse again. This made their auras became closer attuned.
At the end, the color surrounding Wang Dong’s body suddenly changed to dark gold and the ice blue surrounding Huo Yuhao became grey.
This grey color was faint, very faint. But, Wang Dong was surprised to feel its depth, its stability even surpassed his own dark gold color.
Yes, Huo Yuhao’s aura also changed three times. Also, each change fused perfectly with Wang Dong’s aura.
Wang Dong’s hands that grasped Huo Yuhao’s clothes slowly relaxed and hugged him. Just then, their hearts were emptied of distractions and fully submerged into the other’s aura’s wonderful changes.
The three different auras continuously changed and their own bodies’ Spirit Power started circulating as well. With time, it circulated even faster and the exchange between the three auras increased as well.
Different colored auras continuously circulated their bodies. The colors were actually very faint and could only be detected by each other.
They still haven’t realized the significance of this situation but calmly hugged each other to silently feel this magical and comfortable feeling.
Gradually, both Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong felt the other’s body merge into themselves. This feeling was really wonderful. Their souls seemed to follow this and sublimated.
Just then, a coolness appeared in Huo Yuhao’s sea of consciousness and a familiar voice sounded.
“Such good fortune? It can’t be.”
This suddenly appearing voice surprised Huo Yuhao and allowed him to regain some clarity from that wonderful feeling. He subconsciously loosened his grip.
That voice quickly chided, “Hug tighter, idiot.”
Huo Yuhao immediately tightened his arms. He had complete trust in this voice since he had already determined that this voice came from the Daydream Iceworm.
Yes, Daydream Iceworm finally woke after many months of deep sleep because of Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong’s hug.
However, he quickly returned to his deep sleep. Moments later, his voice once again sounded in Huo Yuhao’s mind, “From now on, do as I tell you. I can’t imagine that there would be someone in the world who matched your aura perfectly. This is very hard to understand. No, this should be impossible! But, you did it. To you, this can’t be a better encounter. Make sure you seize it and it will make your future infinitely brighter.”
HUo Yuhao subconsciously thought, “Brother Daydream, what is happening between Wang Dong and me? Who is someone who can fuse with my aura completely?”
Daydream Iceworm said, “Simply said, the current relationship between you two is just like that of husband and wife for you humans. One is Yin and the other is Yang. Two completely identical types of auras with each representing yin and yang. After combining with each other, you’ll be one completely harmonious yin and yang body. You’ll certainly be able to burst out massive power. It seems to be a situation which you Spirit Masters call Spirit Fusion. In other words, you and the guy you’re hugging’s Battle Spirits have perfect compatibility. Also, Spirit Fusion has different degrees. Normally, it requires more than fifty percent for fusion to occur. However, your fusion is one hundred percent. What shocks brother more is that with you two, there is actually a three Battle Spirit fusion. This is not simply a miracle, it’s abnormal!”
“Three Battle Spirit Fusion?” Huo Yuhao stated blankly. “How can that be possible? Wang Dong only has a single Battle Spirit, called the Bright Goddess Butterfly! I also only have two Battle Spirits and the second hasn’t even taken form.”
Daydream Iceworm said with frustration, “Would he have told you how many Battle Spirits he has? If it were me, I wouldn’t say it either! As for you, yes, you originally only possessed one Battle Spirit yourself. Then I gave you an ice Battle Spirit. That would be two. But remember you also have that little grey ball. That mysterious guy with an inexplicable origin. Even though he looks weak now, I don’t think it would be impossible to swallow him no matter what. He actually also became a strange type of Battle Spirit. As for what is going on with this guy, even your brother’s million years of experience can’t understand. He doesn’t seem to be able to obtain any spirit rings, but his innate soul energy makes me scared. I don’t know what it really is. If he can really become your Battle Spirit in the future, then I also can’t imagine what he would look like. But this Battle Spirit that can’t be called a Battle Spirit actually managed to fuse with this little guy you’re hugging. How can it not make brother surprised?”
Huo Yuhao said with shock, “That means, Wang Dong also has three innate Battle Spirits?”
