‘Is this destined to be? Why, why can’t I kill him? Could it be that this is the real catastrophe for the Dragon God?’
‘Why? Why is this happening?’
‘I was supposed to kill him. Kill him and I’ll be invincible. Kill him and I can…’
‘Yet, I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t do it! It’s such a simple matter yet I still couldn’t do it.’
Following the gradual fading of the Dragon God’s dragon soul, two diamond-shaped crystals appeared at the core position where the Dragon God’s dragon soul was at earlier. The crystals were suspended in midair, one of it was golden while the other silver. Seven-colored halos were rippling around each crystal.
Puffs of dragon clouds surged to this part of the sky. One after another, the dragon souls gathered from all around the Dragon Valley like moths attracted to light.
They transformed into a portion of the seven-colored energy as they infused into the enormous silver body.
There were countless fissures on the thousand-meter tall silver dragon’s scales. However, the fissures began to close little by little under the seven-colored radiance’s infusion. A layer of enamel-like texture that had appeared on Tang Wulin’s body began to appear on her body as well. Moreover, the enamel was not colorless but had seven colors.
Finally, when the final of the seven-colored halos surged into the silver giant dragon’s body, she howled at the sky. The thunderous dragon’s roar made the entire small world shake violently. The overbearing aura made the cliffs surrounding the Dragon Valley collapse.
The enormous figure gradually shrank and transformed into the silver-haired maiden once again. Her figure flashed past and she floated to the front of those two crystals. She grabbed the silver crystal and stuck it onto her chest.
She looked back at Tang Wulin who was far behind and took a deep breath. She smacked the golden crystal and sent it flying straight toward Tang Wulin.
“The day I muster the courage to kill you will be the day humans will be annihilated!” Her icy cold voice reverberated in the Dragon Valley, and in the same instant, her teardrops fell.
The golden crystal fell onto Tang Wulin’s chest and vanished immediately after flashing once. The silver-haired maiden took a step into the void and disappeared without a trace.
The small world’s massive rift was quivering in the sky.
“It’s not going to hold anymore because it’s subjected to the laws of the world which is overpowering. What do we do, big brother?” The impressive bald man asked the black-haired man.
The black-haired man snorted. “We’ll need to hold it no matter what, even if it costs our lives. Can’t you feel it? Our lord has found the place. It’s the Dragon God’s aura. After the fall of the Dragon God, it’s the final wisp of soul fragment that put the whole Dragon Clan to sleep. Everyone buck up and hold tight.”
Silver light flashed past at this exact moment as the silver figure suddenly appeared above their heads.
She raised her head and looked up at the black rift in the sky. Her hands stretched out and made a grabbing motion toward the void.
All of a sudden, it felt as if the sky was split into two halves while another massive rift that was ten times larger than before appeared.
“Go!” the silver-haired maiden shouted coldly. In the next moment, she surged skyward and vanished into the rift.
The six men and women each gave out a long howl. They then leaped toward the sky and transformed themselves into streams of radiance before diving into the massive rift. In an instant, they were gone without a trace.
The entire small world shook a bit, then the massive rift began to close.
On the mountain peak.
Radiance flashed once and Dai Yun’er appeared out of thin air.
Black One quickly took a step forward to examine her condition. He did not appear surprised although Dai Yun’er was not wearing a mask. It was apparent that he was aware of her identity since the beginning.
After a brief examination, Black One heaved a sigh of relief. She was fine, only her state of mind was affected. Her soul power would recover since she was no longer in the Dragon Valley. She would wake up soon without the small world’s suppression. Fortunately, the princess returned safely.
There was another flash of radiance as a figure appeared. The figure staggered for a few steps before he could steady his gait.
“Black One.” He saluted Black One respectfully.
“White Thirteen, you’re out as well?” Black One frowned. White Thirteen’s talents and power were considered the top three amongst this mission’s group of White Fighters. He did not expect that White Thirteen would come out so soon as it was not even three months yet.
White Thirteen hastily spoke, “Black One, something is happening in the Dragon Valley. All the dragon clouds in the sky suddenly vanished in one particular direction. I discovered that the entire Dragon Valley was twisting violently as if it was going to collapse just as I was beginning to explore the place. Moreover, the energy fluctuations in the Dragon Valley became very peculiar. I could see a massive rift that appeared in the sky afar, so I immediately triggered the dragon pearl and left.”
“Rift?” Black One turned pale with fear. It was highly possible that the small world was about to fall apart when spatial changes appeared in the small world.
The Dragon Valley was an extremely important small world controlled by the Tang Sect. Only the best White Fighters had the opportunity to train in the Dragon Valley so that Tang Sect could cultivate many outstanding talents. The collapse of the small world would be a great loss to the Tang Sect.
It was at this very moment when the figures appeared one after another. They were the White Fighters leaving the Dragon Valley. Everyone’s description was generally similar. Some said that they were fighting dragon souls when the dragon souls suddenly dashed wildly toward one direction. Then, the entire small world began to tremble as if it was collapsing. They left hurriedly to stay safe.
Black One began to do a headcount. The majority of his men were sent out, each following their turn in the sequence of their arrivals just now.
A gentleman would not stand under a dangerous wall. The White Fighters had all gained knowledge about the small world that it might collapse when drastic changes occurred. In fact, everything in the small world would turn to dust when it collapsed. Naturally, they dared not linger on but fled the moment signs of collapse were imminent.
“Twenty-eight, twenty-nine… Huh, one person is missing?” Black One spoke gravely, “Do a count off, begin from White One!”
Black One’s expression changed just after a few persons counted off themselves. White Three was missing.
White Three was absent.
“We have lost connection with the small world,” the frail elderly man gasped in astonishment as he staggered backward a few steps. On the mountain peak, the light pattern began to darken rapidly and lost all its shine.
Black One’s gaze changed. ‘Has the small world collapsed? White Three hasn’t come out yet.’
He knew White Three’s identity just like how he was aware of White Seven! White Three was the best of Shrek Academy. Moreover, he once performed deeds of valor in one of Tang Sect’s battles.
Tang Sect was different from Star Luo Empire. Anyone who was capable of leading his team to defeat Monster Academy’s top students would certainly be a high ranking personnel in Tang Sect in the future provided he was successful in his development. If such a person should fail, it would be a great loss to Tang Sect indeed.
He wondered what happened to him. He could only wait for White Seven to wake up before he could inquire more.
Dai Yun’er was slowly regaining her consciousness at the moment.
When she saw the fighters around her, she blinked and turned around before sitting up. To protect her identity, Black One had helped her don a new mask earlier.
“Brother Three, where are you Brother Three?” she called out before she leaped up swiftly.
Many of the fighters kept quiet.
When they learned that the Dragon Valley had lost its connection, they understood that the person might not return. This was a situation that was for certain. The collapse of a small world would annihilate everything in it all together!
White Seven stood up immediately to find Black One already facing her.
“White Seven, what happened? How were you separated from White Three? What was he doing?” Black One asked urgently.
