Chapter 1050: Find Him
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Out of nowhere, the vortex turned into a large hand. Even after the Shura King unleashed his martial soul avatar, he was pulled toward Yuanen Yehui instantly.
It was as if the Shura King ran into Yuanen Yehui’s punch of his own accord. The punch hit the Blood Lion avatar on the shoulder. It was a silent hit. There was no explosion nor was anyone sent flying. However, in that instant, the Shura King felt his innards agitated. Then, he saw the fist’s shadow.
Yuanen Yehui’s body turned illusory in an instant. Her initially slow-moving body moved like a butterfly that flitted through a field of flowers. The fist’s shadow enshrouded everything and instantly covered the Blood Lion avatar from head to tail.
The figures shot past each other. A strange buzzing sound came from the Shura King’s body. Shortly after, his Blood Lion avatar shattered. Severed limbs covered the skies, and the bloody mist spread everywhere.
The strange thing was, with the bloody mist lingering in the air, the clumps of blood had turned into vortices. Their sizes varied, but they lingered in the air and did not disperse. They only dropped on the competition stage after a few seconds.
The commentators did not know how to react to it… It was because they themselves did not understand how the outcome of this match was decided.
Yuanen Yehui dropped lightly to the ground. Her body shrunk, and she regained her normal appearance. Her fists were no longer huge. They even seemed small and delicate. However, at this moment, who would dare to look down on her fists?
“Fist Queen! Fist Queen!” No one knew who began the cheer. Shortly after, the moniker spread throughout the entire competition stage. From this moment on, Yuanen Yehui was known by the moniker. She was one of the top eight!
A continuous stream of images flickered in Yuanen Yehui’s eyes. She was replaying the scenes of the battle in her mind. It was definitely not easy to defeat the Shura King. It was especially true since she did not use her second martial soul.
This was her Cloud Vortex Divine Punch’s first time facing such a powerful opponent. She did not even fight with the winner of her group. She was at a crucial point of her Cloud Vortex Divine Punch’s cultivation, and she had missed the competition.
Naturally, the flaw she had exposed was done intentionally. However, it was a real flaw in her defenses. The psychological warfare she learned on the Demon Island was put to great use in actual combat. She knew that an opponent who had a rich experience in battle would not easily fall for such an obvious opening. It was precisely the reason he had fallen into her trap.
The attack target which was changed at the last minute had slowed down the Shura King’s attacking speed for an instant. She had been storing her force as she dodged his attacks. She seized this opportunity and let loose.
The cooperation of the Devil Titan and the Cloud Vortex Divine Punch completely controlled the airflow around them. With the addition of her sixth soul skill, the Titan’s Grip, which was combined with the Cloud Vortex Divine Punch, she had forcibly pulled her opponent toward her. During that brief moment, she lost control of herself. What followed was a series of explosions.
That was the crucial point which led to her victory. As long as her opponent was within a certain distance from her, she would be invincible! Yuanen Yehui clenched her fists tightly. Currently, the silhouette she pictured in her head was a different person. The person was covered in golden scales and had a pair of claws as well. If she could defeat him, she would be regarded as unbeaten in the melee combat among her ranks.
‘Captain, have you entered the quarterfinals?’
Tang Wulin spent his Federation coins to watch the replay of every match of the top sixteen contestants. He paid extra attention to both Yuanen Yehui’s and Ye XInglan’s matches.
Currently, he was filled with excitement and awe. He was not the only one who had improved. Although he was moving forward at a rapid pace, the rate at which his comrades were improving was not slow either!
‘Yuanen, Xinglan, you’re both doing great! Let’s work hard together!’
He did not contact the two of them. After the battles at such levels, they needed to experience their bodies to continuously improve themselves in actual combat. This was Shrek Academy’s unique cultivation method all along.
Each opponent in the finals was stronger than the one before. Ye Xinglan’s improvement was already great, but she still lost to the Gale Saber Demon Sima Jinchi. Armed with the Sabersoul of an eight-ring Soul Douluo, such an opponent was enough to threaten her. Moreover, there was also the winner of Yuanen Yehui’s group. He had ended his quarter-final’s qualifying match today in only three seconds. It was the shortest match among all the eight matches. His odds had gone down again.
Undoubtedly, he would have to face these two opponents on his road to the finals. He could only move forward by defeating his opponents.
‘This is better! If I didn’t have any worthy opponents and obtained the final victory without a fight, what’s the point of me joining a competition?’
After a brief period of excitement, Tang Wulin immersed himself in cultivation again.
“Congratulations, I didn’t expect you to improve to such levels already.” As she looked at her disciple before her, there was only praise in the Heaven Phoenix Leng Yaozhu’s heart.
She had watched the entire assessment process. To her, this assessment could only be described as “unbelievable”. Gu Yuena’s performance was not just perfect, it was more than perfect. Her performance had attracted the attention of the Spirit Pagoda’s Master.
She was only twenty-one, but she had already become a preparatory Spiriter. Ever since the position of Spiriter was established, she was the youngest yet in the Spirit Pagoda’s history.
The Spirit Pagoda’s Master sent word that as long as Gu Yuena could break through to the rank of an eight-ring Soul Douluo and possess a three-word battle armor, he would make an exception and appoint her as an official Spiriter, effectively making her a high-ranking official in the Spirit Pagoda.
Gu Yuena’s talent was awe-inspiring. She was definitely the greatest representative of the Spirit Pagoda’s young generation.
The talents she displayed were even greater than Leng Yaozhu. Even the Spirit Pagoda’s Master had to handle her with kid gloves. He considered selecting Gu Yuena as one of the successors of the Spirit Pagoda.
“Thank you, teacher.” Gu Yuena nodded drily toward Leng Yaozhu. Whether she was granted favors or subjected to humiliation had no effect on her.
Leng Yaozhu sighed, “I’ve watched you growing up. I’m also getting old. The future Spirit Pagoda will be run by you and your generation.”
Gu Yuena shook her head lightly. “Teacher, you’re not old at all. I still have a long way to go.”
Leng Yaozhu smiled faintly. “Says who? With your seven-ring cultivation base, despite the both of you not using your battle armors, you almost defeated a Title Douluo while suppressing him throughout the battle. If this is considered a long way to go still, then we, old timers, won’t be able to match your skills anymore! The way I see it when you attain the rank of a Title Douluo, I don’t even know how powerful you’ll be. Oh yeah, your spiritual power should be at the Spirit Domain already, right? Otherwise, you wouldn’t be able to summon the elements to such an extent.”
“Hmm.” Gu Yuena nodded lightly.
Leng Yaozhu’s eyes shone brightly. “Good, good, good! You must be tired, go and rest. It’s the right decision for you to not participate in the Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge. With your abilities, it’s better to keep them hidden for now. When your cultivation base has reached the rank of a Title Douluo, that will be when you’ll shock the continent.”
She said goodbye to her teacher. Gu Yuena silently returned to her room which was located in the top floors of the Spirit Pagoda’s headquarters.
She closed the door and her expression turned cold as well. She walked slowly to the window and cast her gaze to a faraway direction. From her room, she could see where Shrek City used to be.
Naturally, Shrek City was nonexistent in her field of vision, not even the rubble left behind. Ever since it was obliterated by the rank-12 fixed soul ammunitions, and the aftershock from the explosion had subsided, the underground water had seeped out gradually. Where Shrek City once stood was now a great lake where an expanse of smoke lingered. There was hardly any trace of Shrek Academy to be seen.
“He’ll come back sooner or later,” she mumbled to herself.
“Of course, he’ll come back surely,” another gentle voice sounded.
“Let’s watch the competition. I wonder how his match is, right now.” Na’er’s voice was laced with slight anxiety.
Gu Yue was silent. She slowly walked to the soul screen and switched it on.
Inside a huge villa in the suburbs, a few people sat in the living room. In front of them, the big screen had just finished playing the recording of the first finals match of the Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge.
The man who sat, with his back straight, at the center of the sofa stood up slowly. “That person is still alive. Her Highness did not kill him after all.”
A beautiful girl with long, emerald hair sighed. “Her Highness seems to be much affected by human emotions.”
“She should’ve killed the boy when she had the chance. How can Her Highness be so indecisive?” Another powerful-looking man spoke up with a voice full of discontentment.
“Shut up!” shouted the man who sat at the center of the sofa. The room fell silent immediately.
The man lifted his head slowly. The single strand of golden hair in the middle of his long mane drooped down. He said coldly, “Find him!”
