Daydream Iceworm faintly said, “Idiot. Of course. Think about it. Even dual innate Battle Spirits would not, at what you humans call level twenty, support a thousand-year spirit ring’s oppressing power. It’s only because he has three Battle Spirits and every single Battle Spirit improves his physique, that allowed him to obtain a thousand-year spirit ring at level twenty. The guy you’re hugging, using the way you humans put it, is a genius that rarely appears even in ten thousand years.”
Huo Yuhao absolutely didn’t think that Wang Dong was unexpectedly born with three Battle Spirits. No wonder, no wonder when he faced Xiao Xiao before, he said that if it was 1 vs 1, Xiao Xiao definitely wouldn’t be his equal. No wonder he had such self-confidence. At only the two ring level, he had never seen Wang Dong display a respectful attitude towards anyone. He didn’t expect that his innate talent was this much greater.
“Foolish kid. What do you have to be shocked about? From a different interpretation, you can also be said to have three innate Battle Spirits! Moreover, don’t forget, your first spirit ring is unparalleled throughout history, a million-year spirit ring. I can confirm that on the entire Douluo continent, you absolutely cannot find a second million-year Spirit Beast. That’s why, although he’s an exceptional genius, you are the most unique. Have some confidence in yourself. Like right now, with the presence of the first intelligent spirit ring in history, you will be able to take the initiative in the Spirit Fusion. Relax your body and leave everything to me.”
As he spoke, a current of cool air began to circulate through his body from his head. As the air spread, his perception of the surrounding area increased greatly.
It was almost as if he had used Mental Detection. Everything within the room became three dimensional with changing colors. Huo Yuhao was finally able to see the color changes on Wang Dong’s body. Gold, blueish gold, and dark gold sparkles alternatively. In contrast, white, ice-blue, and gray colors alternated continuously within his own body.
Just like what the Daydream Iceworm had said, their Battle Spirits were extremely compatible. Whenever the color changes to white on Huo Yuhao’s body, Wang Dong’s body radiated with gold. Then ice-blue would match blue gold, and gray with dark gold.
The three pairs of colors showed great coordination.
However, when the Daydream Iceworm began his action, Huo Yuhao’s eyes turned into a pale ice-blue color. Unlike the time he defeated Mao Xiaotao’s Phoenix Fire, the Daydream Iceworm only injected a tiny amount of power into his sea of consciousness and did not directly control his body. This only guided the changes of Huo Yuhao’s aura.
Gradually, it could be seen that the aura around Huo Yuhao’s body became stronger. In this uncontrolled Spirit Fusion, when one side’s aura changes, it will lead to a change in the other’s as well.
The aura from Wang Dong’s body strengthened a bit. Just around this time, a strong wave of mental current was released from Huo Yuhao’s body and stunned both Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong, causing them both to faint at almost the same time. Their bodies also fell on Wang Dong’s fur covered bed.
Daydream Iceworm’s evil laughter began to sound. “Next, it’s Ge’s turn. Battle Spirit Fusion also has the division of primary and secondary. Let’s occupy the dominant position so we can take some advantage. Hey… This little guy named Wang Dong is surprisingly….In that case, I guess I’ll take less advantages.”
Strings of ice blue silk started flowing out of Huo Yuhao’s ten finger tips, quickly wrapping both his and Wang Dong’s body within. Through careful observance, it could be seen that these silk threads were all formed by Spirit Power, and definitely not Huo Yuhao’s Spirit Power. Based on his cultivation, he still has a long way to go before he would be able to materialize Spirit Power.
Gradually, Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong, still in their embrace, had already become a huge cocoon.
Daydream Iceworm is still a silkworm and silkworms form cocoons as their natural ability. Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong’s auras were completely captured within the ice-blue cocoon; constantly moving and changing within.
The Daydream Iceworm said proudly, “Done. Let them continue. Perfect fusion. A hundred percent. Three Battle Spirit Fusion. I’m not going to believe that I can’t force that gray coward out! If you come out of your hiding, I’ll battle you for three hundred rounds. Hehehe.”
Within the dorm room, everything quieted down again. Only the ice-blue cocoon sparkled with a strange light. Outside of the cocoon, there wasn’t even a tiny bit of spirit waves to be detected. And as for the two people within, they were sleeping very deeply.
Time passed minute by minute. This was the only day that Huo Yuhao did not sell his roast fish.
Xiao Xiao waited for both of them for a long time but did not see them leave the dormitory. Like how male students are unable to enter the female dorms, female students are also not allowed in the male dorms. In frustration, she went back to her dorm to rest.
Tang Ya dragged Beibei to the gate of Shrek academy for Huo Yuhao’s roasted fish. Huo Yuhao never showed up, but they were not very surprised. They have all heard about the Freshmen Examination. Even though every year was different, this year was said to be especially difficult! They also have not heard about Huo Yuhao’s team’s performance during the examination. If Huo Yuhao didn’t show up to roast fish, he must just have been too tired. Therefore, they didn’t think too much and went back to their dorms after waiting a short while.
They were not the only ones disappointed by Huo Yuhao’s absence. Today, Jiang Nannan also showed up. Unfortunately, everyone could only leave with disappointment in the end.
However, no one knows just how important this moment was for Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong. After being roommates for the past three months, it was on this day that their relationship had a fundamental change.
Sea God Lake, Center Island, Lakefront.
Teacher Wang Yan, who was just proctoring the Freshmen Examination before, now stood here. However, there is an unusual sense of respect displayed on his face.
Not far before him, a tousled elder sat there with an untidy look. His originally white robe had turned gray with many holes. His hair was also very unkept. His bare feet soaked in the clear lake water and he held a huge gourd in his right hand.
The gourd was purplish red in color and of unknown material. From time to time, he would drink from it and moments later, the sweet scent of alcohol would spread. His other hand held a roasted chicken. With no concern of the grease, he happily ate and drank.
“Xuan Lao, it was just like this. Although these students are very young, and also new students, they are really worth noting.”
“Well…” The uninterested elder called Xuan Lao swallowed a mouthful of chicken and turned his head to look at Wang Yan. What would surprise most people is that even though he looked old based on everything, his eyes were particularly bright. His eyes were shockingly crimson colored. However, his gaze was somewhat scattered and dazed as if he did not pay attention to Wang Yan’s words.
“Body Battle Spirit. That is interesting.” Xuan Lao muttered with a hoarse voice.
Wang Yan asked, “Xuan Lao, does hair count as a Body Battle Spirit?”
Xuan Lao responded as he ate, “Somewhat.”
“Then the sisters, Lan Susu and Lan Luoluo, are worth your attention. These two little girls can also perform Battle Spirit Fusion. If they also possess Body Battle Spirits, then their future development should be very powerful.”
Xuan Lao shook his head, “Hair? No. You’re famous for research. How can your knowledge about Body Battle Spirits be so bad?”
Wang Yan laughed bitterly, “I can’t help that there are no subjects to study! There is also very little information about Body Battle Spirits since the Body Clan are still withdrawn from society.”
Xuan Lao laughed and stood up. His wet feet stood on the grass with comfort. “Then let me teach you a little. To distinguish a Body Battle Spirit’s power, you will need to see the importance of the Battle Spirit to the body. The more crucial the part of the body the Battle Spirit is, the better the Body Battle Spirit. So, what really sparks my interest is that young man with the Spirit Eyes. If you lose your hair, you can grow more. But eyes? Also, he has the mental attribute. That means his Battle Spirit is really eyes and brain. You’re very fortunate to have met the highest grade of Body Battle Spirit in your lifetime. However, I believe that his Body Battle Spirit did not completely show itself. Or else, how could he be using a ten-year spirit ring? You go tell Little Ning that I will go watch the Freshman Examination Ranking Matches. Tell him to save me a seat.”
The curtain of night gradually descended. The icy blue light in Wang Dong and Huo Yuhao’s dorm was still silently shining.
Evening gradually became night as time quietly passed. The aura from Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong was also imperceptibly undergoing a wondrous change. The color of each of their auras became more entangled and combined. Even their Spirit Powers began to enter each other’s body, to travel in a unique cycle. In addition, every time there was a different change in the color of the aura, their Spirit Power would follow a different path.
If it were other people entering Battle Spirit Fusion, it would take more than three days and nights to fuse. However, with Daydream Iceworm directly assisting them to move their Spirit Power in accordance to their auras, they were able to save a lot of time.
Following a night of silence, the sky gradually brightened.
The ice-blue cocoon gradually disappeared and exposed the situation inside. Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong were still in a tight embrace but the color-changing aura on their bodies had faded away. They could feel each other’s breath as they faced each other. They were both asleep, very, very deeply.
After entering Shrek Academy, this was the first time that Huo Yuhao didn’t wake up early to cultivate and it was also the first time that he didn’t go eat breakfast.
Very soon, it started getting rowdy outside of their dorm as other students woke and hurried to prepare for the day.
The noise gradually affected the sleeping pair. Wang Dong’s body took the initiative to move.
“Mm.” A light groan. Wang Dong’s voice sounded languid and even carried hints of femininity. When he slowly opened his two eyes, he directly saw Huo Yuhao only inches away.
At first, he blanked. Then he moved his body and discovered that he was being hugged tightly by Huo Yuhao. Their chests were glued to each other and he could feel a sense of warmth from Huo Yuhao’s body.
Wang Dong only felt that he had slept for a very long time. He had never had this kind of feeling before. At this moment, other than the trace of peculiarity in his heart, there was, unexpectedly, a lot of panic.
“Huo Yuhao, wake up.” He gently struggled as he tried to be free of Huo Yuhao’s hands around his waist. However, perhaps owing to being in this position for too long, both of their bodies were somewhat stiff. Nevermind Huo Yuhao’s hand, even his own hand that he wanted to withdraw was numb.
“Huh?” Huo Yuhao finally woke up from his sleep and saw Wang Dong as he opened his eyes. The distance between the two people was just too close. It was only with Wang Dong painstakingly raising his head backwards, that their noses were no longer sticking together. However, when Wang Dong blinked, Huo Yuhao would feel the sensation of his long, long eyelashes brushing against his face.
“Why are you so close to me?” Huo Yuhao subconsciously said. The moment he said these words, a hot steam immediated puffed out above Wang Dong’s face.
“You……” Wang Dong was furious. He violently struggled and finally managed to withdraw his arms. Then he grabbed Huo Yuhao’s shoulders and pushed. At the same time, his lifted up his long, soft leg and inserted it between him and Huo Yuhao, creating a distance between them.
When Huo Yuhao had woken up, he had subconsciously loosened his hold on Wang Dong’s arms. Now that he was separated by the long leg, he finally woke up completely from his dreams. However, in the next moment, Wang Dong made him become even more awake……
Within the dorm, regardless of whether it was Huo Yuhao or Wang Dong, their beds were all single beds. Wang Dong’s long leg, that was separating the two, suddenly pushed. Immediately, Huo Yuhao fell onto the floor with a “plop” sound.
“Ouch. Wang Dong, what are you doing?” Huo Yuhao was thrown squarely onto the ground without any preparation. Immediately, he felt great pain and became angry.
Wang Dong slightly panted as he sat up on the bed. First, he tidied up his own messy clothes and then angrily said, “You still have the nerve to ask me what I’m doing? Why did you sleep on my bed last night?”
“Uh……” Only now did Huo Yuhao discover that he had been kicked off from Wang Dong’s bed. He suddenly became silent. In his heart, he thought,Daydream Bro, Daydream Bro, you’ve killed me. Didn’t you know that this guy is obsessed with cleanliness? Why did you let me fall asleep?
Although he thought like this in his heart, he nevertheless argued, “This can’t be blamed on me. Didn’t you also fall asleep?”
Wang Dong gave a furious snort. Right when he was about to say something more, suddenly, an ear-piercing bell rang and scared the two people.
“I’m confused. It’s class time. Shoot. We’re late. Let’s go.” In a flash, Huo Yuhao jumped up from the ground, grabbed Wang Dong, and ran out.
Wang Dong also realized the trouble that they were in. He couldn’t focus on getting mad at Huo Yuhao and ran out with him.
Not only did they not eat breakfast, they didn’t even have time to freshen up. They ran towards the academic building as fast as possible. Both of them knew Zhou Yi’s temperament. Being late to class is equivalent to suicide.
They were in a shabby state. Wang Dong was a bit better. He got to fix his clothes after he kicked Huo Yuhao off his bed. Huo Yuhao, on the other hand, looked more embarrassing. His shirt was half tucked in and half out of his pants. Not only was his hair a mess, the top two buttons of his shirt were also unbuttoned, showing his bronzed chest. As he ran towards the academic building, wind was constantly blowing into his shirt.
However, neither of them paid attention to this stuff. All they wanted was to get to classes as fast as they could. They wanted to keep Zhou Yi’s rage to a minimum since they were already late!
One minute later, they arrived at the door of Freshmen Class One.
“Reporting in.” Huo Yuhao shouted with full energy.
“Reporting in.” Wang Dong’s voice was much quieter, almost without any energy. He sneaked a glance at Huo Yuhao in front of him with perplexed eyes. He raised his hand and pinched Huo Yuhao’s waist.
Huo Yuhao’s face suddenly changed color. However, since he already saw Zhou Yi walking towards them while they were at the classroom door, he forced his scream back.
All of the other students were already there. A hint of a smile flashed across Zhou Yi’s eyes as she saw the shabby state he was in. However, because of the pain that Huo Yuhao felt at his waist, he was unable to detect the smile even though he was usually very observant.
“You two. What happened? Come in first.” Zhou Yi waved at them.
Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong quickly hurried into the classroom. Wang Dong thoughtfully closed the door behind him.
Xiao Xiao had arrived long ago. Seeing their shabby state, she couldn’t help but stare. She slightly moved her mouths at the two, without letting out any sounds, mouthing: “God! What did you two do last night?”
Everyone in the class was focused on them, especially the disheveled class president.
Zhou Yi asked with the usual cold voice: “My Class President, tell me, what are you two doing?”
“Uh….., I’m sorry, Teacher Zhou. We overslept.” Huo Yuhao said with a look of embarrassment. They could only take the initiative to admit their mistakes and accept whatever punishments Zhou Yi wants to impose on them.
“Who slept with who? You can even manage to oversleep?” Zhou Yi gave a rare joke.
Huo Yuhao blanked while Wang Dong, by his side, instantly blushed. Because the truth is, she was right…..
The class continued to be silent, but this time it only lasted three seconds. Right after, the whole class bursted into laughter.
Wang Dong lowered his head, wanting to find a hole in the ground to hide in. Shameful, this was simply too shameful. Only now did he notice Huo Yuhao’s disheveled and untidy clothes. He really wanted to smack him to death! This bastard, causing me to be so embarrassed.
Zhou Yi actually laughed too. Even though a smile on her wizened face was even more ugly than crying, Huo Yuhao was sure that she was actually laughing.
Zhou Yi raised her hand. Her authority as the ultimate teacher was without doubt. The roaring laughter immediately silenced. However, the amusements in their eyes couldn’t be controlled.
“Enough. Return to your seats.” Zhou Yi waved her hands and actually let them off like never before.
“What?” Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong subconsciously raised her heads, thinking that they heard wrong.
Zhou Yi stared, “What? Did you sleep so much that you can’t even understand human language?”
Finally, Huo Yuhao understood and pulled on Wang Dong’s sleeve. The two quietly returned to their seats. However, they were still extremely embarrassed after being made fun of by Zhou Yi.
Fortunately, this was Freshman Class One. Everyone was around eleven or twelve years old. As for the question of who slept with who, they only thought it was funny and didn’t think more. If this happened in an upper level class, and they happened to encounter a few rotten women who thought two men slept with each other, then it would get chaotic.
After returning to the podium, Zhou Yi faintly said, “After three days of time, the Freshmen Examinations have concluded. The final results have been tallied last night.”
Hearing this, almost every single student started paying attention. Not every small group was sure that they could pass the examination.
An unflattering smile once more appeared on Zhou Yi’s wizened face for the second time today. “I can’t help but say that you guys gave a lot of efforts and gave me face. This year, all twenty-two group’s students passed the examination. I am pleased.”
“Bang!” The whole freshmen class was in complete excitement. Cheers resounded within every corner. This time, however, Zhou Yi did not stop them but rather watched their excitement with a smile on her face.
They definitely have the right to celebrate. Last night, all the teachers overseeing the exam and the teachers from each of the ten freshmen classed completed the final grading together.
Almost all of the teachers agreed that the students of Freshmen Class One showed more determination. Under the stressful situation of the examination. they were able to show great willpower and battle abilities. They were the class to be able to overcome the most unfavorable conditions. The most important part was that the students of Freshmen Class One won almost all of the battles that were similar in level.
Ever since Zhou Yi became a teacher at Shrek Academy, this is the first time she received a public recognition. The number of students in class one were the least in all of the freshmen classes. However, after the examination, half of the new students have been eliminated and caused class one to actually have the most students within the ten classes.
No matter how strict Zhou Yi is, today is still a good day. That is why, Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong can be easily let go even if they were late.
“Good, quiet.” She waited for a long time before signing for the students to revert back to silence.
“Passing the examination can only grant a stay at the school and you won’t be eliminated within year one. However, it is only for the first year. If everyone does not work as hard in the future then I might not be able to continue to see everyone next year. Furthermore, It is only the Freshmen Examination. Don’t get overjoyed. Within the twenty groups of this class, there are still unfinished battles waiting for fourteen groups. Due to the fact that you’ve now entered the first sixty-four top groups, you will have to participate in further examinations. This is the real time for you to shine.”
After listening to Zhou Yi’s speech, Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong both raised their head with surprise. There were a total of twenty-two teams in their class. Not only did all of them pass the examination, there were also fourteen teams that placed into the top sixty-four. In other words, that means their class took up one fifth of the spots in the top sixty-four groups. That is about double the amount of any other class. They should definitely be proud of such a result.
Zhou Yi continued: “Within the whole examination process, there are a total of six groups that have won all of their battles and one of those groups is from our class. I was originally going to give them some award. However, disappointingly, they were late today. Merits offset faults. Therefore, I will give no rewards, but also no punishments.”
Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong once again became the focus of the entire class. The two were so depressed! They looked at the other in the eyes. This look didn’t matter. Both Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong were expressionless.
This was because when they looked at each other, they clearly felt their own Spirit Power quietly fluctuating. An indescribably intimate feeling arose suddenly and even ignited a feeling of wanting to hug each other once again.
At this moment, they simultaneously remembered the reason they were hugging until they later fell asleep on top of Wang Dong’s bed yesterday.
Wang Dong softly said, “We couldn’t have succeeded, right?”
Huo Yuhao definitely had a more confident answer than him. After all, he had Daydream Iceworm to advise him! However, he naturally couldn’t display so much certainty; but his eyes still revealed a fervent look.
“It could have. Lets try it after class ends?”
The two people almost nodded at each other at the same time. That indescribable mutual understanding arose once again. Even without Mental Detection and Sharing, they still seemed to be able to sense what the other person was going to do next like twins. This kind of feeling was both wonderful and strange.
“Bang——” A loud sound woke Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong from their strange connected feeling. They simultaneously raised their heads, just in time to see Zhou Yi’s angry face.
Uh……, they were caught being absent minded during class.
“You two go outside and run laps. Put on the metal suits. No stopping until the bell rings. You can’t be too happy after such a small achievement.”
We’ve been wronged! Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong’s minds called out in sorrow at the same time. However, they both knew that as long as it was something decided on by Teacher Zhao, it definitely wouldn’t be changed. Without any other options, they could only walk out of the classroom with bitter faces to grab their metal suits from their dorm.
Zhou Yi watched as they walked out dejectedly and snorted, “All of you remember. No matter how great of an accomplishment, you need to have a modest and cautious heart. Arrogance will lead you a step backwards and take your life. Tomorrow, the elimination rounds will begin. I will give you guys a simple explanation of the main points.”
Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong would not be able to hear Zhou Yi’s explanation. Fortunately, Xiao Xiao was still there. Even though Zhou Yi didn’t say it, she meant for Xiao Xiao to pass it on to them.
“All your fault.” Wang Dong exploded with a face full of anger the moment they walked out of the academic building.
Huo Yuhao responded bitterly, “How can this be blamed on me? You were the one who wanted me to hug you yesterday.”
“What did you say?” Wang Dong said through clenched teeth as he looked at Huo Yuhao coldly.
“Uh……, we are a team. We need to be united.” Huo Yuhao said seriously as he looked at Wang Dong’s clenched fists.
“United my ass. You made me get punished. What do you say to that?” Wang Dong said with anger, “Also, you slept on my bed last night. What about that?”
Huo Yuhao patted his shoulder and put his arm around Wang Dong’s neck, “Enough. We’re brothers. Why be so serious about such a small thing? We should quickly finish Teacher Zhou’s assignment first. In case she freaks out more.”
With Huo Yuhao’s embrace, Wang Dong immediately blanked. Huo Yuhao’s voice was also becoming quieter. By the time he finished that sentence, they had both stopped. Huo Yuhao subconsciously looked at his own hand as Wang Dong did the same.
“How can it be like this?” They asked at the same time.
Yes, something very peculiar had happened on their bodies. When Huo Yuhao put his arm around Wang Dong’s neck, it was as if their bodies connected. Huo Yuhao’s Spirit Power naturally flowed into Wang Dong’s body and Wang Dong’s Spirit Power warmly flowed back. It was like they became a single body. Even though it was only between Wang Dong’s neck and Huo Yuhao’s arm, it was still extremely clear.
“Weird. Try it again.”
Huo Yuhao pulled back his arm from Wang Dong and grabbed his hands.
Wang Dong’s hand was exceptionally soft, smooth and white. It was very comfortable to hold. However, Huo Yuhao didn’t have time to experience it.
The moment their hands connected, Huo Yuhao’s Mysterious Heaven Spirit Power ignited and flowed into Wang Dong’s left hand from his right. Then, his left hand felt a suction force as Wang Dong’s Spirit Power was sucked into his own body. Their Spirit Power started to rapidly circulate at a speed that was at least two times faster than the speed Huo Yuhao could cultivate at.
Wang Dong was a genius among geniuses and immediately noticed something. “Control it a little and infuse it into your body.” As he said this, he retracted his left hand from Huo Yuhao. This way, only his Spirit Power was flowing into Huo Yuhao’s body.
Immediately, Huo Yuhao could feel his Spirit Power increase at an explosive speed and filling his body with energy like he never felt before.
His vessels had been reconstructed with the Mystic Water Pill and smoothened with the Mysterious Heaven Skill so it had already reached the peak condition of people his age. Even with the immense amount of Spirit Power infused into him, he didn’t feel any bloated sensation.
Between the two of them, an unseen understanding had already appeared. Huo Yuhao immediately used his Mental Detection and Sharing and encompassed Wang Dong.
Wang Dong closed his eyes to allow himself to better sense this peculiarity. Immediately, he found that the range of Huo Yuhao’s Mental Detection and Sharing was rapidly expanding.
Originally, Huo Yuhao’s Mental Detection and Sharing could already reach a diameter of sixty meters and a could extend to a hundred meters in a single direction. But now, with the help of Wang Dong’s infused Spirit Power, his Mental Detection and Sharing had already reached a diameter of over a hundred meters in a short time.
They looked at each other with open mouths. Huo Yuhao said with a shaking voice, “Wang Dong, have you heard of Battle Spirit Fusion between two Spirit Masters allowing them to infuse Spirit Power into each other for one of them to use temporarily?”
Wang Dong shook his head and muttered, “How can this happen? Could it be that our trial yesterday really succeeded?”
Huo Yuhao said feverently, “Lets find a place to try it?”
Just then, an angry voice rang out of a window on the academic building, “Why are you two holding your hands and falling in love instead of putting on your metal suits and running?”
