Not a sound came from the female students’ direction. Xu Lizhi’s chubby face twitched once in a while as his small eyes disclosed a sense of desolation.
If he were in another soul masters’ academy, he would perhaps be the star of the show due to his ability to cultivate a food-type soul master into a one-word battle armor master. However, Shrek Academy was a place where the entire continent’s monster-level geniuses congregated. He was a food-type soul master without having any specialty, so it was truly difficult for him to attract the females’ attention.
Meanwhile, a light was illuminated.
Xu Lizhi looked toward the illuminated light and found that it was a light nearer to the side. The light reflected off Ye Xinglan who was dressed in an inner court disciple’s uniform as she stood there quietly.
Ye Xinglan was beautiful in her natural look as she did not spend much time dressing up. Instead, she was obsessed with cultivating and spent most of her days immersed in studying the art of swordsmanship. Thus, she did not attract as much attention when compared to Xu Xiaoyan and Yuanen Yehui among the Shrek Seven Monsters.
Xu Lizhi felt a gush of warm blood surging into his brain when he saw the illuminated light.
At the same time, three more lights were illuminated. Those came from Yuanen Yehui, Xu Xiaoyan, and also Female Number Seventeen who had yet to reveal herself.
Male Number Fifty’s gaze fell upon Female Number Seventeen as he stood in the first row. By the look in his eyes, there seemed to be something going on.
The excitement in Xu Lizhi’s eyes dimmed because of the three illuminated lights. Those were his comrades, so possibly they illuminated the lights out of sympathy. ‘Are they showing me sympathy?’ There was some feeling of bitterness in Xu Lizhi.
“Very well. Four Sea God fair maidens illuminated their lights for Male Number Thirty-Two. Now, let’s continue…”
One male student after another came forward in sequence. Each of them had a different result. The rate of being selected was naturally higher for the male students with striking appearances and outstanding powers.
Finally, it was down to the second last male. It was the Dragon King Long Yue’s turn again.
“Will everyone please illuminate your lights for Contestant Number Fifty.” Lan Muzi took a glance at Long Yue standing tall as a mountain with a deep stare in his eyes.
Neither a sound was heard nor a movement was seen. All the females stood stoically without any intention to turn on the light. Everyone’s expression appeared unusually calm.
Although Long Yue was bald, he was not downright ugly. He had a sturdy and tall body with impressive powers. He had already achieved a seven-ring cultivation base at twenty-three years of age. It may be a level that had been achieved before by others, but it was still an outstanding feat. At least, in the present day’s Shrek Academy’s inner court, no one was capable of achieving this level of soul power and cultivation base at Long Yue’s age.
Perhaps, it was because he was outstanding, not a single female was willing to illuminate a light for him.
“I would like to remind everyone again, that if no one chooses to illuminate a light for him, then he will be eliminated from this year’s date festival. I would like to advise every Sea God fair maiden to reconsider as your answer will determine his continuation.”
Tang Yingmeng prompted again, but still, no female from Shrek Academy was willing to illuminate their lights for him. The reason was simple – he was from Star Luo Empire as an exchange student only.
Shrek Academy was no exception. The inner court had been circulating the recorded footage from Tang Wulin’s previous battle against Star Luo Empire’s Monster Academy. The battle was anointed as a classic, at the same time it was also the sole reason Tang Wulin’s comrades were now the Shrek Seven Monsters.
Long Yue left behind a deep impression on the inner court’s students. He was considered the antagonist in their hearts.
“At the same time, as a reminder, there are still a few Sea God fair maidens who have yet to illuminate their lights. If this situation continues, then you’ll also be withdrawn from today’s event after this segment has ended because you’ve not yet found someone you fancy. Hence, please consider seriously your following choice.”
Meanwhile, a light was suddenly illuminated. Long Yue’s frowning brows relaxed as his lips cracked into a faint smile. The long-anticipated light was finally illuminated.
The eighteen-year-old princess appeared poised and graceful under the reflection. Her aristocratic education had made her a debutante. She had discarded her playfulness, and she now appeared gentle, warm, and immeasurably beautiful.
They met each other’s gaze. Dai Yun’er smiled toward Long Yue. Long Yue smiled as well. His back seemed to straighten at this moment and appeared as an awakened giant beast.
‘So what if all of you don’t choose me? I’m fine as long as I’m Yun’er’s choice.’
Lan Muzi nodded. “Male Number Fifty-One is chosen by a Sea God fair maiden. So, will our following and last male student reveal himself before the Sea God fair maidens decide to illuminate their lights for you?”
Male Number Fifty-One pondered for a moment, then slowly raised his hand to peel away the mask on his face.
His head full of long, black hair blew in the wind which draped across his back, revealing his face that was stunningly handsome it was perfect. His long lashes complemented his crystal clear eyes. The moment he removed his mask, the entire Sea God Lake seemed to glow for him.
A faint smile emerged on his face. He bowed slightly in salutation while he stood on the lotus leaf. “It’s been a long time.”
Lan Muzi and Tang Yingmeng were both stunned for a moment. The male that appeared in their vision was familiar to their eyes, yet they were not entirely sure. This person should be a stranger, he should not even be in the inner court if their memories served them. Yet, he was certainly an inner court disciple with the academy’s approval if he was standing there in front of them. Who was he?
“Is that you?”
The sounds of people gasping in surprise echoed across the surface of Sea God Lake. It came from the males’ side as well as the opposite side which was bustling in chaos.
There were three females who leaped up from their lotus leaves immediately. Xu Xiaoyan shrieked in surprise, Wu Siduo gasped, while Dai Yun’er abandoned her prim and proper image.
The person who screamed ‘it’s you’ was Long Yue. He was just standing next to him. It was Xie Xie, Yue Zhengyu, and Xu Lizhi who shouted ‘captain’ and ‘big brother’.
There were also those shocked and incredulous gazes from the others.
The older generation of the inner court disciples was not so familiar with Male Number Fifty-One. However, none of the newly-joined inner court disciples who were not acquainted with him.
He chose to remove his mask at this moment because he was afraid that he would miss the chance. On the other hand, his decision to reveal himself caused a commotion at the date festival.
“I’m very sorry, junior. You don’t appear familiar. If it’s alright with you, can you please tell us your name?” Tang Yingmeng looked at the teenager who was so remarkably handsome. Even though he was not as big and tall as Long Yue by his side, he had a slender figure with such a handsome face. Furthermore, he had such charisma that made others attracted to him.
Male Number Fifty-One nodded. His face cracked into a charming smile. “Hello, seniors. Of course, my name’s Tang Wulin.”
He was indeed known as the class monitor of the outer court’s genius class, the influential personage of the outer court and the former captain of the current generation’s Shrek Seven Monsters. He once led his team to defeat the Eight Heavenly Kings of Star Luo Empire’s Monster Academy. He was none other than Tang Wulin.
Male Number Fifty-One was precisely Tang Wulin.
After witnessing Feng Wuyu’s capture, he had rushed back in time. He was the last person to join this year’s Sea God Lake Date Festival, hence the last participant.
He had returned!
