Dai Yun’er looked all around in search of something from the moment she walked through the door. She soon spotted Tang Wulin and smiled.
Tang Wulin was amazed at how exquisite Her Highness the Princess looked. Her smile was like hundreds of flowers in full bloom. However, Tang Wulin’s felt a chill run down his spine when he saw her grinning mysteriously.
Dai Yun’er walked passed the others and arrived at the front. She pulled the brawny bald man who was standing at the head of the team away by his sleeve. When the man turned around and realized it was her, the bitter cold aura that had surrounded his body vanished at once. He bent over and lowered his head as he listened to her whispering into his ear.
He then looked up toward Tang Wulin.
His eyes turned a shade of crimson immediately. In the split second when his eyes changed their color, the atmosphere in the waiting area seemed to become ominous. Many people in the vicinity fell back subconsciously, with fear on their faces.
The bald man the walked toward Tang Wulin in great strides.
Tang Wulin’s gaze was fixated. As the captain of Shrek’s representative team, he did not draw back at all. How could he show any weakness at this moment?
The man’s eyes began to glow a faint scarlet. He had only walked for a few steps before he arrived before Tang Wulin.
“I’ve heard that you bullied my sister Yun’er?” His voice sounded low and deep. He spoke surpassingly softly given his massive physique, but there was an awe-inspiring aura emitting from him. All in his presence felt a powerful pressure.
Tang Wulin smiled calmly. “There are many definitions for the word ‘bully’, I wonder which one do you mean?”
“My name is Long Yue. Everyone calls me Madman Long. Nice to meet you.” The hulking man stretched out his huge hand to shake Tang Wulin’s.
The skin on his hand was also glowing that same faint scarlet hue. His enormous palm was the size of a cattail leaf fan.
Tang Wulin chuckled calmly as he stretched out his hand in response. “I’m Tang Wulin from Shrek Academy on the Douluo Continent.” He introduced himself in a few simple words.
Their two hands grasped one another. In that instant, everyone felt sparks flying in all directions.
Dai Yun’er’s eyes seemed to flash with intense satisfaction. ‘Humph! You bastard. You’re dead! You’re dead for shaking Brother Long’s hand!’
The red color on Long Yue’s palm had clearly darkened, while Tang Wulin’s palm took on a slight golden shade. The both of them were exuding an aura that gave off as unmoving as the hills to the others.
Long Yue raised his head abruptly. His crimson pupils were like deep vortices as he glowered at Tang Wulin ferociously.
Tang Wulin’s eyes flashed gold in response. Golden light beamed in all directions. He did not flinch in the slightest as he faced Long Yue’s scarlet glare.
They were locked in a stalemate for a full ten seconds. Their arms were trembling slightly, but there was no obvious change to either of them.
“Alright, Brother Long. Let’s call it a day,” Dai Yueyan walked over and spoke with a deep voice.
Long Yue and Tang Wulin loosened their grasps simultaneously. Tang Wulin’s face was expressionless, while a sense of franticness flashed past Long Yue’s eyes. “Hah-hah, that is interesting. It has been too long since I’ve met such a unique opponent. What a waste that you’re too young. How exciting would it be if you were my age? Hah-hah, hah-hah-hah-hah!” Long Yue turned around and left with the sound of his frantic laughter. Dai Yueyan pulled Dai Yun’er along and followed behind.
Tang Wulin placed his right hand behind his back and looked as if he was gazing into the distance. Only his companions who were standing by his side could see that Tang Wulin’s right hand was still quivering slightly.
“Captain.” Xie Xie took two quick strides forward and whispered into Tang Wulin’s ear.
Tang Wulin shook his head, but he did not utter a word.
He was the only person who was aware of what happened in the dispute earlier.
Throughout his entire life, Tang Wulin had barely seen anyone with Long Yue’s strength before. This was the first time he lost in a battle of strength ever since he started breaking through to the Golden Dragon King Bloodline.
The strength of Long Yue’s hand was akin to a deep pool. Tang Wulin had appeared calm on the surface, but he had had to devote all his strength to it. His hand had only bloomed with golden light, but he could not even release the Golden Dragon Claw. Despite his attempts, he had no way to transform his hand when he was subdued by the other party’s terrifying strength.
How could Tang Wulin not feel frightened when encountering such a situation for the first time? The power of this Monster Academy’s team captain could only be described as unfathomable. The mania in his opponent’s eyes was even more terrifying. It was not truly mania, for he was actually extremely calm. It was only his will to fight that was manic but not his natural character.
This was still the first time Tang Wulin had ever met with such a terrifying opponent.
It was very apparent that Long Yue could sense the disparity between his cultivation base and Tang Wulin’s, and hence his final words.
Just as he had mentioned, if Tang Wulin was given another four to five years’ time so that their age difference was not so great.
Gu Yue pressed her hand gently onto Tang Wulin’s right hand. A gentle energy flowed into it slowly. Tang Wulin’s felt as if his hand was soaking in warm water. The severe pain that felt as if it had been crushed was immediately soothed.
Dai Yun’er caught up to Long Yue who was walking in front. “Brother Madman, why did you let him off? Could it be that your strength is not good enough to teach him a little lesson?”
Long Yue burst out laughing as he patted Dai Yun’er’s head. “Silly little girl, you must play with a good toy slowly. A lesson is already enough. Nevertheless, his strength actually exceeded my expectations. I was the same at that age, but he’s still too young right now. What I did was almost enough to bully such a young man. Naturally, I won’t be merciful when we meet them in the arena by the time the competition begins. At that time, Brother Madman will bring you along and let you play to your heart’s content.”
“A promise is a promise!” Dai Yun’er stretched out her little finger towards Long Yue.
Long Yue made a pinky promise to her. “Alright, alright. Since when does Brother Madman not fulfill his promises to you?” He rubbed her head affectionately once again.
Dai Yun’er spoke resentfully, “Don’t rub my head, my hair is all messed up!” Despite her protests, she did not truly resist him.
Xie Xie strolled around on the outside. When he returned, he brought along some information about Madman Long.
“A rare, extraordinary talent?” The expressions of the Shrek Academy’s team became astonished when they heard.
“Yes, that’s what they say. They told me that when Long Yue entered Monster Academy at the age of ten years old, his cultivation base had already reached the level of three soul rings. He has innate divine strength. When he was sixteen years old, he was unmatched after defeating all of Monster Academy’s students and became the leader of the Monster Academy’s Seven Heavenly Kings. He was the all-deserving leader. He barely went out to the outside anymore afterwards. It was rumored that no one really knew his true powers. Based on his cultivation base, I’d say he is at least a one-word battle armor master, an extraordinary one at that. I’m afraid we have met a worthy opponent.”
“We’ll fight fire with fire!” Xu Xiaoyan laughed as he spoke.
“Fortune favors the bold!” Yue Zhengyu continued hastily.
Xie Xie looked towards them. “It seems like the both of you are getting more and more in sync with one another, huh?”
Yue Zhengyu spoke, “We’re just saying that we shall spare no effort. Even if they are capable of defeating us, it’s hardly a credit to them given the difference in our ages.”
Tang Wulin did not utter a word, but all his companions standing around him could see that his eyes were burning with raging flames. This was how it was when Tang Wulin’s will to fight was aroused.
So what if he was a rare and extraordinary talent?
“Look, they’re about to enter the arena,” Xu Lizhi suddenly announced.
The group of them turned their gaze towards the screen on the waiting area’s wall. As expected, Monster Academy’s team had already entered the arena during the first round of group match.
However, Madman Long was not among the seven members who had entered the arena. He was only standing below the stage. The mania on his face had already vanished, but he still stood there as if he was a magic cudgel that calmed the sea.
