Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The two opponents ascended the stage at the same time. They did not meet each other during the solo competition. Thus, this was their first encounter on the competition stage.
There was a fire burning in their hearts. This was destined to be a fight between a dragon and a tiger 1 .
“The second match is about to begin. It’ll be Shrek Academy’s Yuanen Yehui against His Highness the fourth prince. Although Yuanen Yehui doesn’t have a complete set of one-word battle armor, she possesses the core component of a battle armor. She’s able to unleash most of the powers of a battle armor. At the same time, she has a twin martial soul. Both her martial souls are extraordinarily powerful. According to our profile, her martial souls are the Titan Giant Ape and Fallen Angel. She possesses the two great attributes of strength and darkness. This will be a collision between two powerhouses. I wish them both a good fight.”
“Five, four, three, two, one, let the match begin!”
Unlike the previous match, when the commencement of the match was announced, Yuanen Yehui and Dai Yueyan charged toward each other.
They were both assault system Battle Soul Masters. They could unleash their most powerful combat strengths within a certain range. While Yuanen Yehui sprinted furiously, her body started swelling rapidly. Her first and third soul rings flickered. Titan Strength, and Diamond Titan.
When she ran, her feet hardly made any sound on the ground. With the transformation of her body, each stride took her further. Simultaneously, her feet made deep booming sounds when they landed on the ground as if a giant beast was on the rampage.
Similarly, Dai Yueyan unleashed his first and third soul skills. White Tiger Protective Barrier, and White Tiger Diamond Transformation. His body did not swell as intensely as Yuanen Yehui’s, but he too turned extremely strong. He flexed his pair of tiger claws and moved with a blinding speed.
The audience held their breath. Fang’er’s commentating had an urgent tone, “This will be a collision between assault and strength. The first contact between the two contestants will be crucial as it’ll reveal to us which of them has the upper hand in the realm familiar to both. Whoever loses ground after the first contact will face an uphill battle as the match progresses.”
At the same time she was commentating, the distance between the two contestants had reduced drastically. Yuanen Yehui lowered her shoulder in an overbearing pose which bore the weight of her whole body as she charged toward Dai Yueyan.
Just when everyone thought that this would be a clash between two titans, Dai Yueyan’s body suddenly turned illusory. He sidestepped Yuanen Yehui’s head-on ram with Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track. At the same time, his pair of tiger claws swept toward Yuanen Yehui’s ribs at an angle from below.
A head-on collision of strength? Based upon appearances, it seemed that both were assault systems. Even though the White Tiger martial soul was strong, it could never compare with the Titan Giant Ape martial soul who was stronger. Dai Yueyan was sure of this, so he knew he should not be careless just because his cultivation base was one ring higher than Yuanen Yehui. He should not underestimate anyone from Shrek Academy.
Yuanen Yehui’s ram missed. At this moment, she turned a half circle as her body quickly dodged Dai Yueyan’s claws.
Dai Yueyan’s speed was extraordinarily quick. He unleashed Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track and entangled Yuanen Yehui like a phantom. His claws aimed for her vital parts under the ribs. This was also partly due to the difference in their heights.
A smaller stature meant that he was nimbler. In this respect, Dai Yueyan was confident in himself.
When Yuanen Yehui turned around, she raised her arms which exposed the vulnerable spots under her ribs. It was then that Dai Yueyan felt a sudden pull from a dragging force. His initially nimble body became sluggish abruptly. When he moved closer to Yuanen Yehui, even his Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track was muddled.
As a direct disciple of Tang Sect, how could Dai Yueyan not recognize Tang Sect’s Technique of Controlling Crane Capturing Dragon? In reality, he had yet to learn this secret technique, but he knew its abilities quite well.
With Titan Giant Ape’s powerful strength and her vigorous soul power, Yuanen Yehui fused Controlling Crane Capturing Dragon and her second soul skill, Air Cannon, to create a strong controlling force over the air flow. Her arms were in an encircling position and a vortex seemed to appear before her arms. Dai Yueyan reeled from the pull of the vortex instantly.
Yuanen Yehui tried to grab Dai Yueyan’s shoulders with her hands.
Dai Yueyan was caught off guard as he barely managed to dodge Yuanen Yehui’s clutch. Displaying his formidable ability to adapt to changes, he responded swiftly by lifting his head, and a mouthful of White Tiger Intense Light Wave shot straight toward Yuanen Yehui’s face.
The two contestants were very close to each other. It was difficult for Dai Yueyan who had currently lost control to completely dodge Yuanen Yehui’s hands. Similarly, it was equally difficult for Yuanen Yehui to dodge his shot of White Tiger Intense Light Wave at such close proximity.
If one attacked the enemy’s strategic points, there would be retaliation inevitably. Dai Yueyan could not have made a better choice. If Yuanen Yehui wanted to dodge, it would be impossible for her to grab him. Otherwise, she would be hit by the light beam. If she was hit by the White Tiger Intense Light Wave, how could she grab Dai Yueyan then?
With his cultivation base, the attacking power of White Tiger Intense Light Wave had reached a potent level. Within a range of ten meters, even rare metals would be shattered instantly.
Yuanen Yehui’s course of action was so simple, it exceeded everyone’s expectation. She opened her mouth wide and shouted, “Break!” A formless light shot out directly from her mouth in an explosive manner.
Upon contact, the White Tiger Intense Light Wave showed signs of crumbling. Although it was still intact, its speed of attack slowed down tremendously. Yuanen Yehui tilted her head to dodge the White Tiger Intense Light Wave. As a result, one hand missed its target, but the other hand managed to grab Dai Yueyan’s shoulder.
A moment later, Dai Yueyan felt another immense force coming at him. He was jerked upward.
Without the slightest hesitation, the soul rings on both contestants’ bodies shone at the same time. The one which shone on Dai Yueyan’s body was his fifth soul ring, White Tiger Demon God Transformation. His body enlarged and was strengthened swiftly. His attacks and defenses were reinforced at the same time.
On the other hand, Yuanen Yehui’s body shrunk instead with her arms becoming thick and burly. Her fourth soul ring shone brightly, Devil Titan.
“Boom!” Dai Yueyan was sent crashing mercilessly to the ground. The entire competition stage sounded an intense roar.
The spectators’ stand was immediately filled with exclamations of shock. There were many who worried for the fourth prince.
He was thrown to the ground, and a mass of white light erupted from Dai Yueyan’s body. Fourth soul skill, White Tiger Demonslaying Kill. If she did not let go, Yuanen Yehui would be pulled into the White Tiger Demonslaying Kill.
Yuanen Yehui retreated backward and rapidly put some distance between them. At the same time, she raised her fists. Under the exertion of her burly arms, she smashed her fists forcefully onto the ground.
“Boom!” Dai Yueyan unleashed White tiger Demonslaying Kill as he broke free from Yuanen Yehui’s grasp. After Yuanen Yehui hit the ground, his entire body shook violently until he bounced off the ground. His body was currently in a mess.
Yuanen Yehui stomped on the ground with both feet. Like a cannonball, she charged toward his chest to ram him.
When Yuanen was under the influence of the Demon Titan, she was practically a wild machine filled with immense power.
Dai Yueyan’s body was in the air, and his heart was filled with dread. His opponent’s combat strength was exceedingly powerful. Also, the terrifying level of her powers did not seem to be inferior to Tang Wulin’s.
With his body in the air, the fourth prince showed his resolve. He did not make another attempt to dodge or counterattack. Instead, he quickly hugged his knees to curl his body into a ball and used his back to counter Yuanen Yehui’s tackle.
The force of her tackle was brutal. Dai Yueyan was sent flying like a cannonball. Nevertheless, the instant his body was hit, Yuanen Yehui noticed something unusual. Dai Yueyan’s body was unstrained. He was floating lightly like a piece of straw. Despite the impact from the tackle which shook him, it did not have the effect that she intended.
His body shot across the air as Dai Yueyan stretched his limbs. Simultaneously, pieces of battle armor were flung out which reached for his body and then merged together.
Dai Yueyan reflected that he had incurred some serious losses after the series of close-range combat. If this went on, he was worried that he would lose. He might not even have the chance to don his battle armor.
The Titan Giant Ape martial soul completely suppressed his White Tiger martial soul. His opponent’s battle will was stronger than his, and it was apparent that his opponent was more experienced in actual combat. Under such circumstances, he must capitalize on his advantage if he wanted to turn this defeat into a victory. Compared to Yuanen Yehui, his biggest advantage was undoubtedly the complete set of one-word battle armor.
That was why he took the risk of enduring a tackle. With White Tiger Demon God Transformation, he redirected the force of impact to shed it. While he kept his distance, he donned his battle armor.
Yuanen Yehui also unleashed her battle armor without hesitation. A layer of lustrous glow shone. Pieces of battle armor stuck to her body and completely protected her upper body.
With the donning of their battle armors, the imposing techniques of both contestants were strengthened instantly. Dai Yueyan’s feet had touched the ground. In the next moment, he rebounded back to where he came from. This time, he was twice as agile as before.
Yuanen Yehui punched out with her right fist, precisely at his tiger claw.
