Zhou Yi was shocked, “This… Could it be the reward the academy gave you?”
Huo Yuhao’s trio nodded.
Zhou Yi’s eyes revealed a hint of excitement, “No wonder Director Du was so mysterious. It turns out that he gave you such a valuable prize. Which spirit bone is it?”
Huo Yuhao gave a quick explanation and stated how they had already decided for Xiao Xiao to fuse with it.
Zhou Yi nodded. “You are all good children! When faced with a spirit bone, even Spirit Emperors and Spirit Douluos cannot discuss calmly! I am also giving you a spirit bone. This is something you guys deserve. Remember the battle with Ning Tian, Wu Feng and Nanmen Yuner? That time, I made a bet with their homeroom teacher and won this spirit bone. Even though the quality is slightly worse within spirit bones, each has its own unique attributes. If you can find another two pieces of the same attribute, then you can use this to fuse with them. For those who need it, it is a priceless item. However, obtaining two pieces of similar attributed spirit bones is nearly impossible. I suggest you guys to fuse with it now. This one is a left arm bone. It is called the Soul of Secret Arts left arm bone. In reality, it is not a true spirit bone, because it is not obtained from normal methods.”
“This Soul of Secret Arts spirit bone was obtained using a unique and cruel method. It is possible to obtain a spirit bone with a ten percent chance if you kill a hundred spirit beasts within an hour and use secret arts to activate their spirit rings. It is a relatively simple method to obtain a spirit bone. But, since it has a low chance of success, and it is extremely cruel, very few spirit masters would do it. If fused directly, it will give you a fifty percent spirit power increase. The number may seem small, but this increase will remain from beginning to end. When your cultivation has reached a high enough level, its percentage increase will become more apparent.”
Huo Yuhao received Zhou Yi’s pouch and turned toward Wang Dong. But, Wang Dong looked away, “Don’t look at me. I will definitely not fuse with this spirit bone. Don’t you think it is too common?”
Seeing Wang Dong’s proud look, Huo Yuhao’s heart shook. Of course he knew that this was Wang Dong purposely trying to give him the spirit bone! Splitting future rewards is easier said than done. How hard would it be to obtain another spirit bone? When will they have another chance to decide who receives the next one?
Wang Dong’s face flushed under the bright sun. The sunlight also gave him a thin layer of light. Even though he had turned his head away, Huo Yuhao could still see the determination in his eyes.
Huo Yuhao could feel Wang Dong’s wish to right any previous injustices. He did not reject it again, but carefully stored away the Soul of Secret Arts Spirit Bone. At the same time, he buried their love deep within his heart. Such love between brothers do not require words, but is reflected in their actions.
“Mm, this spirit bone is somewhat useful. Just keep it for now. I will have you fuse with it later.” Daydream’s voice rang out within Huo Yuhao’s mind without any warning, giving him quite a shock.
“Brother Daydream.” Hearing his voice, Huo Yuhao had a feeling as if he had just been reunited with a family member. His suppressed emotions suddenly exploded as his eyes reddened. In Zhou Yi, Wang Dong and Xiao Xiao’s eyes, he was obviously moved by Wang Dong.
Daydream said with annoyance, “Little Yuhao, don’t be depressed. Your brother here will help you. Those people are short-sighted. They actually think your brother turned into a ten year spirit ring. Humph. Don’t worry. After a few years, we will make them quiver every time they see a ten year spirit ring. I will say it again. Quickly raise your spirit power to level twenty. When you reach it, I will make sure that no one ever belittles you again.”
“Mm. I will try my best to cultivate to level twenty quickly. At least before I graduate from the first year.” Even though he had come to terms with not becoming a core disciple in his heart, it still gave him a sense of urgency. With his current cultivation, it might be a challenge to even continue studying in Shrek Academy.
Zhou Yi said, “Wang Dong, you go back with Xiao Xiao first. I have things I want to say to Huo Yuhao.”
Wang Dong looked toward Huo Yuhao, his two beautiful wide eyes filled with encouragement. He waved his fist toward him and left with Xiao Xiao.
Zhou Yi walked next to Huo Yuhao and grabbed his arm. After a moment, Huo Yuhao felt as if he was flying through the clouds once again.
It didn’t take long before Zhou Yi stopped. Huo Yuhao shockingly discovered that Zhou Yi brought him to the Spirit Guidance Testing District again. The last time had left a deep impression within him. It convinced him to study spirit guidance device construction and use. To come here again. Of course he understood its meaning.
“Teacher Zhou. Did Teacher Fan Yu agree to take me?” Asked Huo Yuhao with joy.
Zhou Yi nodded slightly. “You are a smart child. However, I must remind you that your cultivation is at a dangerous level within the first years. Two rings is a requirement for entering the second year. You must reach it. I am not against you studying spirit guidance devices, but you must have a good foundation with your battle spirit. This means you should carefully manage your time.”
As they talked, Zhou Yi brought Huo Yuhao into the Spirit Guidance Testing District.
The well-built Fan Yu quickly came to meet them after Zhou Yi called. Compared to his cold expression the first time they met, he seemed a lot more gentle. He patted Huo Yuhao’s arm. “I saw your final match in the Freshman Examination. It was wonderful. You were great.”
Zhou Yi looked with surprise at Fan Yu. She was usually strict and appeared cold, but really had a warm heart. Fan Yu was different. To her understanding, he rarely praised others as he was extremely proud of himself. Huo Yuhao was only a first year student, yet, he received such high compliments.
“It’s good to see you again, Teacher Fan Yu,” greeted Huo Yuhao with a bow.
Fan Yu nodded, “I heard from Zhou Yi that your Mental Detection has improved. Come. Let’s test it.” For someone like him, who was dedicated to research, being direct was a common attitude.
“Okay.” The pure, white, million year, spirit ring rose and Huo Yuhao’s eyes became golden colored. What no one realized was that his white spirit ring also had a hint of gold flashing through it.
His Mental Detection and Sharing was released and covered an area of fifty meters in radius.
After feeling the position of every object within the field, Fan Yu nodded with satisfaction. “Mm, it is quite a big improvement. No wonder you guys were able to become the champions. With this kind of detection, you will always be able to predict the opponents’ movements. Eh…?”
As he was talking, Fan Yu suddenly found that the mental detection had changed. The previously area wide mental detection had started retracting, while lengthening in a single direction. This extending feeling was magical.
Zhou Yi was also included in Huo Yuhao’s Mental Detection and Sharing. She experienced the same phenomenon. Her eyes widened. With a whisper, she asked, “How are you doing this?”
Seeing the two teachers’ surprised looks, Huo Yuhao didn’t answer. Because when he was extending it in a single direction, his focus had to be extremely stable.
Finally, when the Mental Detection reached its limit, Huo Yuhao stopped it and released his spirit.
Fan Yu looked at him with glowing eyes, “A hundred and twenty meters. Very good. You realized my wish. Yuhao, I want to ask you. Will your Mental Detection continue to grow as your cultivation improves?”
Huo Yuhao paused for a second, then nodded.
“Good!” yelled Fan Yu, scaring Huo Yuhao and Zhou Yi.
Fan Yu patted Huo Yuhao’s arm once again. “Come with me.” He turned and walked with long strides into the testing district.
“Caitou. Come here.” Fan Yu waved his hands. Huo Yuhao watched as Caitou came running toward them. When he saw Huo Yuhao, he said with pleasant surprise, “Oh it’s you! Huo Yuhao, long time no see!”
Huo Yuhao saw He Caitou’s simple and honest smile and greeted him, “Hello, Brother He. You seem even more sturdy than before.”
It was true. The dark skinned He Caitou seemed to have already become an adult. His muscles were tough. His healthy figure seemed almost the same as Fan Yu’s.
Fan Yu said, “Caitou, demonstrate the strength of a Spirit Guidance Spirit Master for Yuhao. Don’t hold back.”
“Okay!” He Caitou was obviously happy. In a flash, he had undressed his shirt and revealed his healthy muscles. Then, Huo Yuhao was stunned by what he saw.
He Caitou’s hands flew up and continuously patted his belt. One piece of metal after another came out. Then he installed them on himself….
He Caitou finished in less than ten seconds. The him now was covered by black metal. As for what these black metals were for, Huo Yuhao was obviously oblivious.
He Caitou’s body flashed and three spirit rings rose. Two yellow, one purple. The ideal setup. Right after, his first spirit ring started flashing. Then, Huo Yuhao watched as He Caitou’s mouth extended into a two centimeter long, black, yellow object.
His left hand casually rose and the black metal suddenly exploded in light. The long, thick object in his mouth seemed to have caught fire. Then, waves of white smoke rose into the air.
Huo Yuhao’s face twitched as he forced himself not to laugh out loud. The thing in He Caitou’s mouth really looked like a freshly out of the oven, a piece of steaming hot…. stool….
Of course, his piece was relatively solid….
