CHAPTER 27 – ENEMY? BROTHER?

Part 3

Their opponents could never have imagined that Wang Dong would be so ruthless from the start. More importantly, they couldn’t have imagined that the Light of the Butterfly Goddess had such power.

With the support of HaoDong Power, Light of the Butterfly Goddess was equal to at least a thousand year spirit ring ability from a three ring Spirit Elder. The only thing the opposing team could do was to use their own spirit abilities to resist.

After a gorgeous scene, the two agility type spirit masters were directly blasted out of the field. The offense type spirit master was able to endure, but he had used 70-80% of his spirit power and was still injured.

With this, Wang Dong opened his dazzling wings and landed on the ground. With a domineering tone, he said, “Do you want to leave by yourself, or should I help you out?”

Afterwards, there was no afterwards. Since entering the elimination matches, this was the fastest round. This was also the match that had greatly increased Wang Dong’s reputation and many started calling him the strongest Freshman offense type spirit master.

With the end of the match, Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong quickly left the field to their dorms. The truth was, only they knew that even though Wang Dong’s spirit power may have recovered, he was still injured from the morning’s match and could not fight for an extended duration. That was why they ended the previous match with such explosive force. If they had encountered a strong defensive spirit master such as Xie Huanyue, even if he only would have two rings, the difficulty to win would have dramatically increased.

After this match had finished, Huo Yuhao, Wang Dong, and Xiao Xiao officially entered the top four of the Freshman elimination contest. That meant they only needed to win one more match to guarantee a reward. After winning two more matches, they would become the Freshman champions.

Zhou Yi had told them that the quality of this year’s Freshmen was far better than before. If they could become the champions under such conditions, there would be no doubt about their potential.

After returning to the dorm, Huo Yuhao did not go sell roasted fish again. Instead, he started cultivating with Wang Dong, using their HaoDong Power. Without Xiao Xiao’s help, the next match would be extremely difficult. They wouldn’t be able to use the same tactic again. Although the great explosive force they used in the afternoon had a great chance of winning, it would be hard to achieve the same result if their next opponents were more prepared. However, this was also their most important tactic before Xiao Xiao could return.

Dawn. When the first ray of light shone from the far east, Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong opened their eyes simultaneously and retrieved their hands. Huo Yuhao turned and got off the bed to open the dorm window facing the east.

A touch of purple appeared on the grey dawn sky and Huo Yuhao’s eyes suddenly turned purple.

Wang Dong fixed his clothes and went to shower first.

Everything was so natural. Fresh air blew in through the window as Huo Yuhao’s face revealed the hint of a smile.

Mom, can you see? Your son has become a real spirit master. I have even entered the top four in the freshman examination of the continent’s number one spirit master academy. Don’t worry, I will definitely go back. You suffered so much. I will definitely give you a spectacular funeral and make those who had looked down on you, those who had bullied you, pay.

Thinking to this point, a hint of hostility flash uncontrollably in Huo Yuhao’s eyes. Within them, other than the purple color, there was also a layer of red flashing for a moment.

The reason he had devoted his life to cultivation, putting in so much effort to become the strongest, was not because he wanted to excel over others, but to get revenge for his mother. He did not forget any of the suffering he had experienced since young. Even though he had experienced warmth and friendship after coming to the Shrek Academy, he could not forget the previous eleven years of pain. The memories from his youth had been deeply carved within his mind.

Yes. There will be a day when he will return. He will return to the place that had given him those dark memories, where his mother’s remains still lay.

No one could have imagined Huo Yuhao’s ambition. The seed of hatred had started sprouting long ago.

After the time needed to drink a cup of tea, Wang Dong pushed the door open and came in. He looked at Huo Yuhao, who was still standing in front of the window, and couldn’t help but ask uncertainly, “Yuhao, are you okay?” Usually, by the time he came back, Huo Yuhao would be ready to go shower, but today, he was still standing in front of the window.

Huo Yuhao hurriedly wiped his moist eyes and turned around. He smiled forcedly and said, “I’m fine. I just thought of my mother.”

No matter Tang Ya, Beibei or Wang Dong, Huo Yuhao had always said that he had lost both his parents and was now an orphan.

Wang Dong’s gaze suddenly became soft. He walked over to Huo Yuhao, “Don’t feel sad. What’s happened is in the past. I think your mother will want you to be happy too. Right? Now you have a new beginning at Shrek Academy. You can forget about all those unhappy things in the past. Go wash up. Let’s go eat some breakfast and cultivate a bit more. When the time comes to use it, you will always wish you had learned more! If I had worked harder in the past, then I wouldn’t be in such a rush now.”

Huo Yuhao chuckled and grabbed his toiletries as he went out. Can hatred really be forgotten? If it were possible to forget hatred, then what kind of power could have enabled a child, not even eleven years old, to journey to the Star Dou Great Forest and sustain him, the Freshman with the least amount of talent, till now? Sometimes, hatred could stimulate action, but other times,  it could also blind one’s eyes.

After washing up, Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong ate their breakfast quickly before cultivating more. They only left the dorm after the sky had turned bright. The champions of this year’s elimination contest would be determined today. After entering the top four, they would not cower no matter what.

Compared to yesterday, there were a lot more people observing today. Of course, most of the observers were teachers. The students had to continue with their lessons. However, the drab elder from yesterday did not appear again.

The twelve students who had entered the top four were standing together. The one in charge of the lottery was no longer the outer school Battle Spirit Division Director Du Weilun.

A white-clothed elder had taken his place. Seeing this elder, Huo Yuhao was secretly shocked. He had seen this elder before. It was when he and Wang Dong had first encountered the crazed Ma Xiaotao.

Back then, this elder was the leader of the teachers who had rushed over from Sea God Island. For him to appear at the last stages of the Freshman Examination was enough to show his prominent position in the academy. The powerful director Du Weilun could only respectfully stand beside him.

“Nice to meet you all, youngsters. I am Yan Shaozhe, the two hundred and sixty-first dean of Shrek Academy,” said the white-clothed elder with a smile. He had a very gentle attitude that gave people the feeling as if he were just a common, elderly man.

  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. 😀
