When they heard his name, even the people from Monster Academy were surprised.
The truth about Sima Xian not joining Monster Academy was debatable.
The people from Monster Academy studied Long Yue’s face. Even Madman Long displayed a sense of guilt.
It turned out that after Sima Xian had passed the entrance examination for Monster Academy, he reported to Monster Academy on the day when the term commenced.
In Star Luo Empire, the prestige that Monster Academy held was similar to Shrek Academy’s on Douluo Continent. How could there be anyone who would turn down the opportunity to join Monster Academy?
As it turned out, when Sima Xian arrived jubilantly at the gates of Monster Academy, he had an unpleasant encounter with someone.
This person stood at the gates and blocked his way. Then, he said something to him.
“Boy, do you’ve any money?” The bald guy raised his arm and barred Sima Xian from passing through.
“Who’re you?” Sima Xian was known as the genius of his generation. He had succeeded in passing Monster Academy’s entrance examination and his heart was filled with pride.
“Who I am doesn’t concern you. I see you’re pretending to be what you’re not. Give me your money!” The bald guy rubbed his index finger and thumb together.
“Do you have a death wish? Move aside, you’re making me late for the registration. Can you bear that responsibility?” Sima Xian raised his eyebrows as he flew into a rage. At the same time, there was a faint sense of power and threat released from his body.
“Do you have any money or not?” asked the bald guy.
“I have plenty but what does that have to do with you?” A cold gleam flickered within Sima Xian’s eyes.
Two minutes later.
“You really have a lot, they’re all mine now.” The bald guy had one foot on Sima Xian’s back.
“With that puny might of yours, what’re you doing here in Monster Academy? Go back, have a shower and take a nap.” The bald guy took his money, turned around and marched into Monster Academy with his chin held up.
Sima Xian, with bloody lips, slowly rose to his feet. The fury in him was at its maximum. He howled furiously, turned around, and ran.
Shortly after, he joined the Royal Star Luo Academy.
When he recalled about the situation back then, how could Long Yue not feel awkward? Consequently, he was punished by Monster Academy. If it were not for Grand Tutor En Ci’s fondness of him, he would have been kicked out from Monster Academy.
When everyone from Monster Academy heard the name Sima Xian, they could not help but smile sheepishly when they looked at Long Yue.
“Cough! Cough! Aside from Yun’er, I’ll pulverize anyone who continues to stare at me!” Long Yue waved his fist.
“Hahaha!” The students from Monster Academy broke out into laughter.
Tang Wulin did not know that the opponent before him had such a history with Long Yue. Currently, his attention was all on Sima Xian.
Sima Xian was not tall, about a hundred and sixty centimeters. His build could be considered medium, and his eyes not small. He could almost match Tang Wulin in appearance except he was a little thin.
His gaze toward Tang Wulin was filled with a sense of longing. When Tang Wulin locked eyes with him, he felt shaken. He thought inwardly, ‘What does this guy want?’
What did Sima Xian want? What he thought was simple.
Currently, Star Luo Empire knew that this captain who hailed from Shrek Academy was extraordinarily strong. Many people compared him to Long Yue. On the other hand, Sima Xian was pummeled and his tuition fees robbed by Long Yue. Sima Xian regarded that as a shameful episode in his life. After the incident, he confronted Long Yue three times consecutively as he wanted to redeem himself. However, each encounter turned out worse than before because he found it increasingly difficult to endure Long Yue’s barrage.
He was dejected because the difference in their strengths was so great. He reckoned that he would not be able to catch up to him during this lifetime.
Following that, he put in great effort to make himself strong as he cultivated and endured the hardship. He had not met Madman Long for three years. In this competition, he had mustered all his courage and might to meet Long Yue.
In his eyes, Tang Wulin was a touchstone. If he could defeat this captain from Shrek Academy, then his name would be known far and wide within the circle of Star Luo Empire’s Soul Masters. Everyone would know him by then.
Then, he could be on par with Long Yue. After he obtained the results of the drawing lots, he had eagerly looked forward to this battle. Now, he was filled with thoughts of how to completely suppress Tang Wulin and win this match decisively.
On the competition grounds, the officiating referee did not announce any rules. He only observed both parties and began the countdown.
“Five, four, three, two, one, begin!”
On the platform, Fang’er straightened her back. “This is it, everyone. The match has officially begun. Let us witness this battle of the powerhouses and see who’ll emerge victoriously. Contestant Sima Xian has made the first move. He has released his martial soul.”
“As expected, the most outstanding student from Royal Star Luo Academy has five purple soul rings. This disposition of soul rings is on par with the outstanding students of Monster Academy. Contestant Sima Xian’s martial soul is very powerful and its name is Bullhorn Dragon. Legend has it that it’s an existence born from the union between a true dragon and a type of rare soul beast known as takin. It possesses the power of a giant dragon and the agility of a takin. It’s no longer a martial soul within the Land Dragon category. Instead, it’s an existence that has half the bloodline of a true dragon.”
The people in the waiting area could also listen to the commentary. When they heard Fang’er’s introduction, Xie Xie and Yuanen Yehui both smiled mockingly.
Bullhorn Dragon? It’s as easy as eating a pie.
Tang Wulin did not move from his initial spot. The stage with a diameter of five hundred meters was truly vast. With the commencement of the match, Sima Xian ran wildly as he headed toward Tang Wulin.
The first and second soul rings on Sima Xian’s body shone consecutively. His thin frame enlarged continuously during his wild dash. His legs grew tougher and stronger, and his body became bulkier. A long tail towed behind him and two large bull horns sprouted from the top of his head.
Bullhorn Dragon! It was truly powerful. The true dragon bloodline which he possessed originated from a true dragon which was one of the Nine Dragon Kings that specialized in power. His bloodline had a strong preservation quality.
In fact, Sima Xian’s martial soul Bullhorn Dragon still had its differences with a real Bullhorn Dragon. This was because he only had the martial soul, unlike Tang Wulin, Su Mu, or Long Yue who possessed the power from their respective bloodlines.
Long Yue was powerful because not only was his martial soul the Mountain Dragon King, but he also possessed the Mountain Dragon King’s bloodline. When the two were combined, his strength was.
While Sima Xian was dashing wildly, he lowered his head and his body released a horrifying aura. Alongside his wild dash, circles of yellow halos emanated continuously from under his feet.
This was a very powerful soul skill. With the enhancements of one’s strength, the magnitude of the gravitational force which one could control would also increase. Sima Xian with his five-ring cultivation base could increase the gravitational force five times while he himself remained unaffected by gravity.
Although Tang Wulin could not hear Fang’er’s explanations, he could clearly see what was happening. When Sima Xian’s martial soul was released, he felt the wave of a dragon’s aura. His brows were raised slightly. He stood in a steadfast posture and waited for Sima Xian’s charge.
Sima Xian ran at blinding speed. His thickset lower limbs pushed him forward. He lowered his head and his pair of bull horns flickered with a terrifying cold gleam. His circles of Gravitational Control continuously amplified themselves as they sent waves rippling outward. When he was less than a hundred meters from Tang Wulin, the effects of Gravitational Control could be felt beneath Tang Wulin’s feet.
Tang Wulin’s eyes lit up at this very moment. A brilliant golden light attracted the attention of the masses. At the same time, when the golden light shone, a layer of golden scales covered his entire body. Two circles of golden soul rings rose from under his feet. His first soul ring shone which was Golden Dragon Body!
A pair of Golden Dragon Claws hung from the sides of his body. He looked in Sima Xian’s direction. There was coldness in his eyes.
The third soul ring on Sima Xian’s body had also lit up. Although he wanted very much to defeat Tang Wulin, he did not underestimate his opponent. He unleashed his third soul ring. The Bullhorn Dragon martial soul conferred on him a layer of decorous scales.
