“Clang!” The flames circulated and engulfed Long Yue’s entire body in an instant. Yet, Long Yue tightly gripped the saint sword that had descended from the sky in his right palm.
Yue Zhengyu felt as if he had stabbed into a metallic mountain. There was no way he could stab an inch further. On the other hand, the Holy Light that he had released enshrouded Long Yue’s body which seemed highly dense that it was impenetrable. There was no way his Holy Light could bore into Long Yue’s body no matter how hard he tried.
Subsequently, the Holy Light vanished while the saint sword in Long Yue’s hand disappeared. In the next moment, the saint sword appeared once again. This time, it pierced directly at Long Yue’s lower abdomen.
Long Yue’s left hand crossed downward colliding with the sword’s blade. Yue Zhengyu felt a rush of tremendous force unleashed that his body tumbled forward.
But, he was quick to react. His foot stepped with the Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track as his body shimmered with a ghostly image. The saint sword was retracted and released again. This time, he pierced Long Yue’s rib at an intricate angle.
Yue Zhengyu’s current position was at Long Yue’s blindspot. He was at a location lateral to Long Yue.
At this moment, the third soul ring on Yue Zhengyu’s body glowed. His saint sword turned translucent. The Light of Judgement combined with the saint sword to form a translucent light blade.
His control of his soul skill had since achieved a remarkable level. The extreme power from the combination of saint sword and the Light of Judgement exceeded an ordinary third soul skill.
What happened next was an episode that astonished Yue Zhengyu.
Long Yue swayed his body as it turned illusory. His speed matched Yue Zhengyu’s. Yue Zhengyu’s calculated stab had missed its mark to his surprise.
Yue Zhengyu stammered, “Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track?”
Undoubtedly, Long Yue’s manoeuvre in dodging his stab was the Tang Sect Technique’s Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track.
Yue Zhengyu then witnessed Long Yue’s right hand slapping forward. His palm had completely turned to white. At the same time, it grew into a gigantic palm, with a diameter of two meters, which was moving toward Yue Zhengyu.
Yue Zhengyu’s body twisted. His saint sword changed directions together with the Light of Judgement. His piercing movement turned into a picking manoeuvre. The tip of his sword was aimed at Long Yue’s palm.
“Ding!” Yue Zhengyu’s body shook with a crisp sound as he retreated two steps. The Light of Judgement covered Long Yue’s body in an instant. This was the horrifying part about the sword. It was not only for stabbing but also acted as a conductor for the Light of Judgment.
A series of popping sounds emanated from Long Yue’s body. The Light of Judgment’s attacking power was terrifying.
Generally, a soul master’s martial soul would produce a qualitative change once it achieved a three-ringed cultivation base. The Holy Angel martial soul was the highest grade martial soul, so its third soul skill was naturally powerful. The Light of Judgement was purely an attacking tactic. Its power was beyond imagination when the Light of Judgement was used as the third soul skill in addition to the saint sword.
Meanwhile, Yue Zhengyu heard a roar that sounded berserk and was filled with wild energy.
Then, he saw the Holy Light which he used to enshroud Long Yue’s body was forcibly torn apart. Long Yue’s hefty body was expanding rapidly. He swelled up to over five meters in a split second.
Yue Zhengyu fixed his eyes upon Long Yue while he took another deep breath.
Long Yue’s appearance now was shocking.
His body was covered in a layer of large dark brown scales. The scales were round and each piece of scale protruded like a ball that was cut into two halves. A long tail dragged behind his back. With his brawny muscles and wide shoulders, he appeared more spine-chilling than Yuanen Yehui when she transformed into the Devil Titan.
More importantly, Yue Zhengyu saw Long Yue’s soul rings. This was the first time Long Yue had released his soul rings in the competition.
Purple, purple, purple. The first three soul rings were thousand-year purple soul rings.
Next, black! His fourth soul ring was a ten thousand-year soul ring!
Next, black again! His fifth soul ring was another ten thousand-year soul ring!
This was in line with the expectation of Shrek Academy’s contingent. His final soul ring was black as well, the third ten thousand-year soul ring!
Yes! He was a six-ringed Soul Emperor!
The person who stood before Yue Zhengyu presently was not a four-ringed Soul Ancestor nor a five-ringed Soul King, but was truly one who possessed six soul rings. Besides, three of his soul rings were of the incredible ten thousand-year level. He was a six-ringed Soul Emperor!
“How is that possible?” Xu Xiaoyan who was astonished cried out inadvertently in the waiting area.
Yes! How was that possible?
He was actually a six-ringed Soul Emperor!
Long Yue was not yet twenty years old so he qualified to participate in the Continental Young High-Ranking Soul Masters Elite Competition. He possessed six soul rings and he is not even twenty years old. He was unimaginably powerful with his cultivation base that achieved a breakthrough to the sixtieth rank.
Such opponents were held in awe.
When Tang Wulin was first acquainted with Wu Zhangkong, Wu Zhangkong was then a six-ringed Soul Emperor. So, it was a surprise for them to come across such an opponent in the Young Soul Masters Competition.
There was absolutely no one who possessed six soul rings before the age of twenty, not even a single person from Shrek Academy.
Shrek squad’s natural endowments were already the best among their peers but they were still a long way from becoming five-ringed soul masters.
They were all confident that they could achieve a breakthrough to five soul rings before the age of twenty to become Soul Kings. Nevertheless, it would take them at least another three to four years upon reaching the age of twenty to become Soul Emperors.
In the case of Long Yue, he was already a six-ringed Soul Emperor! It was undeniable that this fact shocked them tremendously.
No wonder he had never before unleashed his martial soul. Even then, he was capable of defeating his enemies.
Long Yue was beyond everyone’s level! He domineered over them completely. Frankly, he was an opponent without peer.
It was a bombshell for Yue Zhengyu. Instinctively, he backed away a few steps. His wings flapped forward strenuously to pull his body back rapidly so as to keep a safe distance between Long Yue and himself.
Long Yue’s face was oversized. His eyes were gleaming with dark red radiance. “Your power is rather impressive. It’s already a high grade martial soul for a four-ringed cultivation base. Thus, you’re qualified to witness my martial soul. But, I apologize for what’s about to happen. Even I’m incapable of controlling my strength at times. My martial soul is the Mountain Dragon!”
Long Yue’s upper body perked up unexpectedly as his voice faded away. A gargantuan figure emerged behind his back, and it was constantly changing. At times, it had the appearance of a giant dragon without wings, but at other times, it appeared like an unsophisticated city.
One would be alarmed to discover that a city was located on the back of the dragon while the gigantic dragon transformed into a stretch of mountain range.
The incredible scene blew the minds of Yue Zhengyu and the audience away.
“Mountain dragon?” Gu Yue’s gaze froze for a moment as she stood beside Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin looked toward her. “You know anything about this martial soul? I’ve never learned about it from the academy. Is it an Elemental Dragon?”
Gu Yue shook her head. “No, it’s not an Elemental Dragon. It’s a real dragon. Moreover, it’s one of the strongest among the real dragons. There’s a saying the Mountain Dragon takes the crown.”
Tang Wulin was stunned. “The Mountain Dragon takes the crown? He has no wings, and he cannot fly. Is he a real dragon at all?”
Gu Yue explained, “Yes. The Mountain Dragon is a rather peculiar creature among the dragon clan. Legend has it that a long time ago, the Dragon God started roaming the galaxy not long after he was born. Later, he found a planet and was prepared to settle down on the planet. Thereupon, he began creating his first generation children. There were a total of nine children and they became the legendary Nine Great Dragon Kings. Since they were created by the Dragon God, they were both his children and lords.”
“Following that, the Nine Great Dragon Kings procreated and established their territories. But then, there were only the Eight Great Dragon Clans. The Nine Great Dragon Kings included the Golden-Eyed Black Dragon King that controlled darkness, the Jade Dragon King that controlled time and space, and the Holy Dragon King that controlled light and prayers.”
“Why were there only the Eight Great Dragon Clans when there were the Nine Great Dragon Kings?” Tang Wulin queried about the mismatch.
Gu Yue spoke in a deep voice, “I was about to mention that. Every one of the Nine Great Dragon Kings were extremely powerful as they had inherited a portion of the Dragon God’s strength. The Golden-Eyed Black Dragon King was the Dragon God’s defense that assisted the Dragon God in mustering the clan’s order. The Holy Dragon King was responsible for creating life, and hence for breeding. The least conspicuous among the Nine Great Dragon Kings seemed ordinary. Nonetheless, it played an important role.”
