CHAPTER 27 – ENEMY? BROTHER?

Part 2

Elder Xuan shook his head, “You should know what is most important to an innate body battle spirit. It is latent power, as in, a changing battle spirit. Today’s match was already clear. Even under such pressure, his battle spirit did not change in any way. That is to say, he did not possess the essence of an innate body battle spirit. His age is too high, his spirit power is lacking, and he only has a ten year spirit ring. Even if he did have that latent power, he is still not someone I would want. Do you understand now?”

Wang Yan was still unwilling, “But, Elder Xuan, I had just learned yesterday that Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong have accomplished Battle Spirit Fusion and can even use a Battle Spirit Fusion Skill. Even though I still don’t know what their Battle Spirit Fusion Skill is, isn’t this enough to show his talent?”

Elder Xuan disagreed, “Battle Spirit Fusion Skill cannot represent everything. Enough!I have already made my decision. The other two can be candidates. Nevermind that Huo Yuhao.”

As he spoke, he stood up. With a chicken wing in one hand and a big gourd of liquor in his other hand, he unsteadily walked away. With his faltering steps, it seemed as if he could tip over any time.

Watching Elder Xuan’s shadow, Wang Yan sighed. Of course he knew about Huo Yuhao’s problem. However, he still felt that this youngster had an uncommon temperament. Even though Wang Dong and Xiao Xiao seem to excel over him greatly, he was still able to lead them into the competition and become the team’s core. How could this be?

“Could my judgment really be wrong? No. I won’t give up. No matter what, I will use all my power to train Huo Yuhao. I can approach Elder Xuan again after he has obtained some accomplishments.”

The Freshman Examination elimination matches had reached the last few rounds. The top eight teams had already appeared following the morning matches. Undoubtedly, they were the most outstanding teams. What no one could imagine was that both teams with Spirit Elder students were eliminated. More importantly, they were actually eliminated by the same team.

There were only eight teams left. When Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong arrived at the location of their afternoon match, they were instantly the focus of the other seven teams, even though only two of them were left.

HaoDong Power was miraculous. With Huo Yuhao’s support, Wang Dong had completely recovered his spirit power after only two hours. In addition, due to the use of their full power in the morning and diligent cultivation, his spirit power had also reached level 25.

While waiting for the lottery, Huo Yuhao whispered to Wang Dong, “Oh yeah, what skill did you use at the last second this morning?”

Wang Dong responded, “Guillotine Wings and Light of the Butterfly Goddess together. It is my strongest offense tactic. If I am not wrong, then that Xie Huanyue’s battle spirit is a rarely seen spirit beast called Rubber Elephant. This type of battle spirit has a powerful innate defense. His first spirit skill should be elephant body. The skill that made his arm grow longer should have been elephant nose. The last spirit skill with powerful movements should be something like elephant fury. It would have been impossible to break his rubber ball-like defense with normal attacks. There are only two ways. One is an elemental attack like a high temperature fire or extremely cold ice. Another is a very sharp attack. My use of the Light of Butterfly Goddess and Guillotine Wings was to break his defense with extreme sharpness. When this guy was caught by Xiao Xiao, it gave me enough activation time and confidence to destroy his battle spirit in one attack.”

Hearing Wang Dong’s explanation, Huo Yuhao couldn’t help but admire his knowledge. Even though he himself had worked hard to learn the last three months, there was still quite a big difference between them! This further reinforced Huo Yuhao’s motivation.

“Team Huo Yuhao, step up for the lottery.” Director Du Weilun’s voice shocked Huo Yuhao awake from his thoughts. Hurrying up, he took a lot from the lottery cylinder in Du Weilun’s hands.

Du Weilun looked at Huo Yuhao closely as he approached and thought to himself, this student really does have some exceptional points. Mental attribute battle spirits are very rare. It’s a pity that he is not even level 20 at this point. The chances of him obtaining a powerful spirit ring in the future is miniscule. Otherwise, he would have the qualifications to become a core disciple! We should wait and see. As long as he can continue passing the academy’s examinations, by his fourth, fifth year, we will be able to see whether he has the qualifications to be a core disciple of the battle spirit division.

“Number 3.” Du Weilun retrieved the lot that Huo Yuhao had picked out and announced it in a loud voice.

Within the teams that had already finished picking lots, a group of students’ faces suddenly paled. They were the opponents that Huo Yuhao had just picked out.

Huo Yuhao returned to Wang Dong’s side, “If we just picked another team with a Spirit Elder when the chances are only one in seven, then I think we should consider praying.”

Wang Dong had a helpless face, “Pray to which god?”

Huo Yuhao chuckled, “Of course the Sea God. Isn’t he the ancestor that our academy really represents?”

Wang Dong put his right hand on Huo Yuhao’s shoulder, “Hey, there is nothing to laugh about. When the chances were three out of thirty two, our chances were not even one in ten but we still got it. When it was two out of sixteen, our chances of picking one was less than one out of eight, but we got it again. Now, it is one out of seven. The chances are even greater than before. What do you think about our probability now?’

Hearing his analysis, Huo Yuhao suddenly felt despair, “We can’t be that unlucky,  right…..?”

Reality showed that fortunate really does exist. However, it was not always good or bad. They didn’t pick a team with a spirit elder this time.

The two teams faced each other in the Examination Area and reported their names. This time, they were against opponents from Freshman Class Nine. All three were Spirit Grandmasters above level 20. They were a relatively strong team. However, there was still a big difference compared to the teams that Huo Yuhao had faced in the last two matches.

“Two agility types and one offense type. Another team with this set up. So boring. What will we do?” Wang Dong whispered to Huo Yuhao.

Huo Yuhao’s eyes flashed, “Just use brute force.”

“Okay.”

Their cooperation had become better and better. After a simple exchange, the match started.

Both sides released their battle spirits at once. Even though Wang Dong was an offense type spirit master, he did not directly charge forward, but instead flew up using his pair of blue wings. Then, his purple, second spirit ring started shining.

Huo Yuhao grabbed Wang Dong’s ankle from the bottom. His eyes had a pale, gold glow that was hidden by the brilliance released by Wang Dong.

All one could see was the gold patterns on Wang Dong’s Bright Goddess Butterfly wings shining. With HaoDong Power, the gold colored patterns also had a hint of orange.

With close examination, Huo Yuhao could clearly see that Wang Dong’s second spirit ability did not shoot out a light ray but distinct circles of light. Each of the gold patterns would shoot out one light ring. They numbered in the dozens. In the next instant, the orange glow brightened the entire field.

  2. I really don’t like the school elder’s opinion of Huo Yuhao. I know his abilities are very subtle, but we see how game changing they are. He’s a support genius. A support monster, actually.

  3. Setras, man I love you. I was really worried that DD2 will stop being translated. And today I’m reading my second chapter this is better than Christmas. DD1 was my first LN and the whole universe of DD is amazing for me and it inspires me to work more and better. FYI I work with kids and when I’m inspired I organize better workshops and classes.So the kids are happier. 😀 Thank you for every chapter I really cherish this. If I could help you I would but I have no time to devote to learning Chinese so your work is a life saver. Thank you. I salute you amazing sir. Keep up the good work. 😀

  4. Anyone else feel that Tang San and Huo Wuhao go a bit overboard when it comes to revenge? Tang San’s mother was murdered by some people from Spirit Hall, and his father killed most of them, and Tang San decided to destroy Spirit Hall-an international organization with tens of thousands of members-in retaliation. Huo Wuhao’s mom was killed in abeating ordered by Dai Huabin, and he decides to kill the entire Dai family-a millennia-old, powerful group, some of whom are genuinely cool people. I just think these guys take things a little too far.

    • Not at all. They both snapped at a lot more than just those two incidents I think. Tang San lost a mother, lover, father (basically) and family and Spirit Hall did all kinds of horrible things outside that. Huo Yuhao was disowned by his relatives, forced to be discriminated against and the only person he loved was abused and finally killed by the Dai family. For growing up like that, I would probably want them all dead too. My question would be does anyone else feel that those two show some sort of superhuman restraint being able to think enough to gain power first? Especially Huo Yuhao since he wasn’t almost 30 at the time of his birth. 😀
