He was afraid that Tang Wulin was fraught with grim possibilities for he understood Long Yue’s strength more than anything else. Tang Wulin was considered a tough survivor for not dying on the spot from Long Yue’s incessant stomping on his chest. Yet even as such, even a Titled Douluo recovery-type soul master could not necessary save Tang Wulin’s life when his body was so severely injured.
En Ci was also astonished at Mu Ye who brought Tang Wulin away because he had yet to clarify his identity. However, he was still greatly astonished by Mu Ye’s power and knew fairly well in his heart that he did not have the confidence to defeat him either. This information could startle the entire Star Luo Continent if it was spread out because En Ci was reputed to be the number one powerhouse on Star Luo Continent.
It was still an hour away from the match but the Star Luo Coliseum was already filled to the brink with an extremely excited crowd.
Fang’er had arrived early as well to make preparation for the commentary later.
In order to ensure the safety for contestants on both sides in today’s matches, the organized intentionally assigned four Titled Douluo powerhouses as judges. At the same time, the royal family intentionally declared to the Douluo Continent Federation diplomatic corps that the situation that happened previously would never happen again today.
The match had yet to begin but the anxiety had already spread throughout the entire coliseum.
Many in the audience were getting food and water for themselves to replenish their energy in fear that they would have no time to eat and drink when the match began later.
No one knew how long this match would last but they were secretly hoping that the match would last as long as possible.
“They’re here!” someone shouted aloud as the audiences shifted their gaze to the direction of the waiting area in unison.
The group from both sides entered the arena almost back to back. Shrek Academy’s green uniform and Monster Academy’s red uniform formed an extremely bright contrast.
Both sides did not make any intersection but they entered the arena swiftly one by one and sat down to rest in their own region.
The Dragon King Long Yue led Monster Academy’s corner, followed by the Tiger King Dai Yueyan, the Wind King Lin San, the Fox King Su Mu, the Wolf King Hua Lantang, the Pagoda King Ye Zhi, the Shadow King Teng Teng, and the Spirit King Dai Yun’er.
All Eight Heavenly Kings were present.
On Shrek Academy’s corner.
The first seat remained vacant and was followed by Gu Yue, Ye Xinglan, Yuanen Yehui, Yue Zhengyu, Xie Xie, Xu Xiaoyan, and Xu Lizhi. There were a total of seven people.
The mood of the seven people was obviously far less calm than before. Their eyes were shimmering with a dazzling radiance but there was a hint of bitterness in their aura. Even Monster Academy’s group of students who were their opponents could not help but look sideways.
Su Mu squinted and spoke softly, “It seems like it’s not going to be easy to deal with Shrek Academy today. Be careful.”
“Hmm.” Everyone except Long Yue nodded gently.
Dai Yuan’er appeared very calm that was different from her usual active persona. She had been feeling slightly depressed ever since Tang Wulin was severely injured and disappeared after the individual match. She discovered in astonishment that she did not seem to take joy as she watched Tang Wulin almost die under Long Yue’s attack. His handsome and young appearance flashed past her mind occasionally. Even if he was an abomination, she felt like this was not a deadly sin!
However, she could not blame Long Yue either for she was the person pestering Long Yue into punishing Tang Wulin after all. Yet, was he truly in trouble? Did he die just like that?
She was in an even more depressing mood when she did not see Tang Wulin today. She seemed to have grown so much in a few short days. At the very least, she realized how stubborn she had been in the past.
“Ladies and gentlemen, those in the audience and friends. Welcome to the Star Luo Coliseum. I believe that everyone has already been anticipating today’s match for a very long time. This is the final group match for this year’s Continental Young High-Ranking Soul Masters Elite Competition. At the same time, it’s also the confrontation between the two strongest academies on two continents. It’s our Star Luo Continent’s Monster Academy versus Douluo Continent’s Shrek Academy.”
There was an added touch of excitement in Fang’er’s voice without her noticing it. How could she possibly resist the anticipation of this match?
“Next, we request the pleasure of His Majesty.”
The audiences were startled when she said that. Was His Majesty giving a speech? This had never happened in the earlier matches.
Dai Tianling stood up as his gaze swept past the Star Luo Coliseum. The entire audience stood up in unison at once and placed their right fist across their chest in a gesture of respect to their emperor.
“I’m very glad to be able to witness such a competition. I’m just as excited as all of you at this exact moment. I’m also a part of the audience anticipating the exciting match,” Dai Tianlian spoke with a smile on his face.
“The reason why I’m speaking is mainly to express my expectation of this match. Monster Academy and Shrek Academy each represented the Star Luo Continent and our homeland, the Douluo Continent’s most powerful academies. I hope that both parties would engage in today’s match taking their friendship before the competition as the foundation of the match. This will be the best way to exchange one’s skills and knowledge. The government is going to offer more rewards to motivate both sides for the match. Every participating contestant will be awarded a precious item that will benefit the elevation of your cultivation base regardless of the final result. Alright, I announce that the match has begun.”
The sound of cheering echoed like a mighty torrent in the Star Luo Coliseum at once following Dai Tianling’s declaration.
Dai Tianling held an extremely prestigious position in the heart of his citizens. He made great efforts to build a prosperous country ever since he was enthroned and managed the empire into flourishing prosperously. He repressed the Green Skeleton Rebellion and robbed them of any opportunity, to the point of even forcing them to take shelter in the nearby borderlands rife with complicated terrains. They could do nothing but linger there as their condition worsened. This feat alone gave him the reputation of being an ingenious monarch.
The four judges walked to the center of the competition simultaneously. The leading elder spoke with a deep voice, “Will the contestants from both sides for the first match please ascend the stage.”
Everything was carried out in an even stricter manner as it was the final match. A partition board arose in the waiting area on both sides rapidly to ensure that the other party could not make any targeted arrangement after seeing the members sent out from the opposing group. The partition board was capable of isolating spiritual detection abilities.
The gaze of the audience was focused on the waiting area of this corner, and the high-ranking officers on the audience form were no exception. Who was going to fight in the first match?
The first person stood up from Shrek Academy’s corner was the owner of Stargod Sword martial soul and was also the only contestant with a full set of one-word battle armor at the same time. It was Ye Xinglan!
A sea of gasps echoed immediately when Ye Xinglan stood up.
Su Mu, the Fox King Su Mu stood up first on Monster Academy’s corner. The Fox King was ranked third amongst the Eight Heavenly Kings and was once defeated by Tang Wulin.
Both parties walked out of the waiting area simultaneously and headed straight for the competition stage’s direction. Ye Xinglan did not even take a glance at Su Mu’s direction. It was as it did not matter at all of who was the opponent to her.
Su Mu walked forward with great strides. Both people ascended the stage in unison.
The first match was important to boost morale so it was extremely important for both sides.
Su Mu could not help feeling fearful in his heart when he realized that his opponent was Ye Xinglan. The first match should be fought by Dai Yueyan if they arranged it according to their combat capabilities even if it Long Yue did not make an appearance. However, Dai Yueyan was still the empire’s fourth prince. It would be an extremely huge impact on his status if he were to lose in the first match.
Thus, Monster Academy made the arrangement to send out its contestants in this sequence — Su Mu, Dai Yueyan, Long Yue. The first three great Heavenly Kings were arranged to participate in the first three matches so one could say that they taking Shrek Academy seriously.
Ye Xinglan looked at Su Mu expressionlessly. Su Mu, on the other hand, looked at her with a burning gaze. There seemed to be sparks flying out of nothingness when the glow in their eyes clashed.
The four judges drew back to the edge of the competition stage in succession. A great battle was about to break out at any moment.
Ye Xinglan watched the match between Tang Wulin and Su Mu in the past. She still had a fresh memory about Su Mu. He was the Fox King with a Nine-Tailed Fox martial soul. Su Mu also possessed the Nine-Tailed Fox Bloodline and was extremely powerful. He was the embodiment of power — five great halos which were made up of control and assault abilities.
