Judging from their beauty, Gu Yue was far behind Na’er or rather, it could be said that she was not even in the same league as Na’er. However, at that moment, Na’er was unable to even suppress Gu Yue’s beauty by a little when they stood together for some reason.
“When is he coming back? It has already been so long…” Na’er spoke coldly.
“I don’t know.” Gu Yue shook her head.
Na’er suddenly retorted in rage, “You don’t know? How can you say that!? You said that he was fine and that he’d certainly return. Yet, it has already been a full three years since his disappearance and he hasn’t returned to this day! Is it possible that you’ve already killed him?”
Gu Yue turned to look at Na’er. “If I were to kill him, wouldn’t you be able to sense that? Although I don’t know why hasn’t returned as well, I can be certain that he’s still alive. Perhaps, he’s staying there to become a husband to another princess…”
Na’er suddenly became quiet when she heard ‘princess’s husband’. She turned around and looked toward Sea God Island.
“No. My brother isn’t that kind of a person. He wouldn’t fall for someone that easily. He’ll certainly return… He’s probably just caught up with something,” Na’er spoke with determination.
Gu Yue suddenly replied, “If he was to come back, does our bet still stand?”
Na’er spoke proudly, “Of course! I don’t think you’re capable of beating me.”
Gu Yue did not utter a word as she remained expressionless. “However, I can’t continue doing this anymore. There are too many things waiting for me to handle. You can remain here and act like a manager who does nothing but I can’t. You should understand the burden I’m shouldering. You refused to bear it so I’ll have to bear it. I can only wait for another three months at most before I’ll need to leave because I promised him that I’d accompany him to study in the inner court back in the beginning. He’s the one who didn’t return… He’s the one who didn’t fulfill his promise… That’s why I’m leaving.”
Na’er’s body shuddered ever so slightly. Her gaze suddenly turned gentler. “You…”
Gu Yue’s lips abruptly cracked into a smile but it was a slightly dull smile. “Can you talk me into changing my mind about leaving? I bet you can’t, right. The conclusions we’ve drawn are still different. You’re only avoiding the matter but what you don’t understand is, this is what we should be doing!.”
Na’er replied, “Then what if my brother comes back? Will you still leave if he’s back?”
“Yes!” Gu Yue spoke without the slightest hesitation, “I can’t wait with everybody else any longer. Time waits for no man! I have many things that I must do. The Spirit Pagoda has been hoping that I’ll take a position there.”
Na’er took a deep breath. “Alright then. Go if you must go. I’ll always be waiting here… waiting for his return. Since you’re sure that he’s fine, then he’ll certainly come back. I’m confident.”
Gu Yue smiled but she held her tongue as she ran her fingers through her hair before she turned around to walk toward the main building of the inner court.
Na’er smiled as she watched Gu Yue leave. “You’re destined to lose to me as long as he comes back. Actually, don’t you know? You’ve already lost since the very beginning. Or rather, are you too scared to admit that?”
Na’er looked up to the sky. “Brother, when will you return! You can’t possibly stay in Star Luo Empire and become the princess’s husband right.”
At Shrek Academy’s main entrance, or more accurately, Shrek City’s main entrance.
An elegant soul car slowly stopped as a person alighted from the right. The person was tall and stalwart as a mountain. He was bald and dressed in a well-fitted suit so he appeared to be extremely imposing.
He circled to the back of the car and arrived at the left door before he opened the passenger door.
First, a pair of slim and long legs stepped out from the car. The legs were elegantly long, had a milky white complexion and exuded a crystal-clear radiance. Following that, a white dress appeared as a maiden alighted from the car.
She seemed petite as she stood beside the bald brawny man with the big curls in her hand draping down her back. She seemed to exude an uncommon prestige.
There was hope on her exquisite face and as she looked at the sign on the door that stood before her, there was an indescribable thirst that flashed across her eyes.
The bald brawny man walked toward Shrek City’s main entrance. The place was open to the public except for their cars. It was clear that they had already inquired about this matter before arriving.
There were another two staff dressed in uniform who were clearly from the federal government aside from the both of them. They came down from the car trailing behind and walked in quick strides toward the both of them before guiding them into Shrek City.
Be it was the bald brawny man or the white-dressed maiden, their faces were filled with curiosity as they walked into Shrek City. They were occasionally looking around.
“Brother Long, this is such a bustling city! Douluo Continent is truly more fun than where we come from,” the maiden spoke.
The bald brawny man nodded as his eyes shimmered with a scorching hot radiance. “Shrek Academy is here. I wonder how miraculous this place is since it’s known as the number one academy in the continent.
The maiden smiled shyly. “It’ll certainly be miraculous as long as he’s here.”
The bald brawny man turned around and stared at her with a peculiar expression. “Yun’er, it has been over three years. You…”
The maiden shook her head. “Brother Long, I’ve already known since the beginning. There’s no need for you to console me either. I understand that you have good intentions, and I know that you’ve been really good to me all this time. However, I’ve already made up my mind, and I’ll never change it. Three years ago, I refused my betrothal by threatening them with my death. Three years later, only I can dictate my destiny. Have you forgotten? Father had already removed me from the list of royalties out of shock and rage. My future children will never be members of the royal family any longer.”
If Tang Wulin was here, he would certainly realize that the white-dressed maiden was Star Luo Empire’s snobbish little princess — Dai Yun’er. On the other hand, the person she was with was Monster Academy’s main pillar and was the one who held the reputation of being the number one genius since millennia. He was the Dragon King, Long Yue!”
Long Yue spoke out of frustration, “Yun’er, His Majesty was only furious for a moment. Moreover, your fourth brother told you secretly that even if His Majesty refuses to forgive you, the first thing he would do when he became the crown prince in the future was to grant you a royal pardon.”
Dai Yun’er smiled and spoke, “How can I not know that? Father appeared to be shocked and furious on the surface just for show. He had no choice but to do so in order to uphold the royal dignity but in reality, he was giving me freedom in disguise. As for whether my children will be a part of the royal family… that’s not important. Perhaps I’ll even stay behind in Douluo Continent.”
Long Yue’s gaze turned cold as he clenched his fists tight subconsciously. He truly wished that he could ferociously beat up this guy.
“Let’s go. We’ll go to Shrek Academy immediately! I’ll never leave if I don’t see him this time.”
In Shrek Academy’s dormitory.
Xie Xie sat on the sofa in his room in a daze. His gaze appeared slightly sluggish from the very beginning, and he had been acting like this for the past few days, even to the point that he stopped the painstaking cultivation he usually undertook.
Naturally, there was a world of difference in the treatment he received upon entering the inner court compared to the outer court. Everyone had their own private rooms and even the quality of their diet was increased many times over. Moreover, it was provided by the academy for free.
It could be said that the experience between the outer and the inner court was akin to the distance between hell and heaven. Every auxiliary cultivation facilities over here were the best of the best along with only the best teachers.
Wu Zhangkong did not join them in the inner court but he remained on the outer court to continue teaching in second-grade class one. However, he had announced that he would not be a teacher any longer after this final batch of students. He had chosen to remain in the inner court to cultivate and study battle armor.
“Bang! Bang! Bang!” The sound of someone knocking on the door echoed.
Xie Xie was startled but he reacted to the situation immediately. He hastily stood up and opened the door.
It was Yue Zhengyu coming through the door. He pushed Xie Xie who standing in front of the door away as he walked right into the room.
