However, the Fourth Elder was using a domain attack! After sensing that it wasn’t having any effect, he quickly made adjustments. A few Netherworld Swords still came towards the two of them.
Wang Qiu’er suddenly pushed the palms that were facing each other out.
A sonorous dragon roar reverberated out, and a ball of golden light blew apart within the patch of green lights. A wild and immense strength was unleashed among the green lights, as if it were an explosive bomb that had just gone off.
Boom, boom, boom!… A tremendous explosion tore through the air, and streaks of sword light were deflected away and crushed. Huo Yuhao and Wang Qiu’er’s aura didn’t seem to be weaker than the Titled Douluo opposite them, even though they were staggering backward.
Inside the lightning net, Nan Shuishui and Nan Qiuqiu had already been pulled to the Third Elder’s side. He used two chains to trap them, soul tools that could restrain soul power. Those who were Soul Emperors and below couldn’t possibly use their abilities under the restraint of such soul tools. To the Third Elder, Nan Shuishui was under the influence of the Soul Eradicating Powder, while Nan Qiuqiu was only a Soul King. He just needed these two soul tools to restrain them.
Nan Shuishui didn’t resist. She was very focused on the fight that was going on, in awe.
The Third and Fourth Elders might not know who Huo Yuhao and Wang Qiu’er were. However, how could Nan Shuishui not know who the two of them were?
One of them was the team leader of Shrek, while the other was the linchpin of the Tang Sect. Since they could compete in the Continental Youth Soul Master Tournament, that meant that they weren’t twenty years old yet. They were around the same age as her daughter, but they had already demonstrated how brilliant they were.
Nan Shuishui had always thought that her daughter was already very outstanding. However, Nan Qiuqiu was simply too inferior to Huo Yuhao and Wang Qiu’er.
The two of them were actually able to survive several confrontations against a Titled Douluo, and they didn’t seem to be on the back foot either. If word of this spread, how proud would they feel?
Of course, the two of them wouldn’t become too excited because of this. The Fourth Elder was simply putting too much pressure on them.
He was a nine-ringed Titled Douluo!
Huo Yuhao had always known that Titled Douluo were extremely strong. In Shrek Academy, he knew many Titled Douluo and Transcendent Douluo.
However, it was two different things to know a Titled Douluo and to fight a Titled Douluo!
He felt like the Fourth Elder’s Netherworld Sword could tear them apart at anytime.
Huo Yuhao and Wang Qiu’er’s fused soul power was quickly declining after they blocked this blow of his. If this continued, they wouldn’t be able to resist his attacks for long.
“Qiu’er!” Huo Yuhao called to Wang Qiu’er through his spiritual power.
“What?” Wang Qiu’er seemed to reply him less coldly.
“I have an idea to get their attention. When I draw their attention later, leave. It’s impossible to charge out from here, given our abilities. We only have one opportunity, and I’ll help you create it. At most, they’ll capture me. When you return to the Academy, just think of a way to rescue me.”
Huo Yuhao’s voice was very calm, andwas filled with confidence.
Wang Qiu’er was silent, and didn’t utter a sound.
“Qiu’er, did you hear me?” Huo Yuhao quickly probed. There wasn’t much time left.
Wang Qiu’er sighed before she replied, “Alright!”
They were already suffering against one Titled Douluo, and there was still another one for them to face.
Huo Yuhao took in a deep breath, then dragged Wang Qiu’er with both his hands to his side. She spun around, and they changed positions. She was now behind Huo Yuhao.
However, she didn’t just place her hands around his waist like he did to her earlier. When she came behind him, she wrapped her arms around his waist. She stuck close to his body and hugged him without any gaps.
Wang Qiu’er’s body was warm and cushiony. She wrapped her arms around his waist strongly, but didn’t make him feel restrained. He felt indescribably relieved. Wang Qiu’er’s surging soul power poured into his body, while she seemed to forget that she was on a battlefield right now. She twisted her head to one side and gently rested it on the back of Huo Yuhao’s shoulder, staying close to him.
A delicate fragrance spread, and Huo Yuhao was still distracted by Wang Qiu’er, even though he was fighting a life-and-death battle.
Huo Yuhao silently called in his heart. I’m sorry. If I didn’t meet Dong’er, perhaps…
However, I’ve given my life to Dong’er. Just let me use this last moment to completely sever this yearning in your heart. You must live well in the future, and find someone who dotes on and loves you. Forget me.
An unequivocal look flashed across Huo Yuhao’s eyes. At this moment, his arms drooped beside his body, and his hair didn’t move. His eyes started to fill with silver light, and a look of remembrance slowly spread across them.
Huo Yuhao smiled, and his spiritual intent seemed to rise to another level. Waves started to rage in his spiritual sea.
Teacher Electrolux, I’m afraid I’ll have to disappoint you. I can’t pass down your legacy anymore.
Ice Empress, Brother Skydream, Snow Lady, I’m sorry. I can’t continue to charge towards the path of Gods with all of you in the future. When I leave, I’ll pass all of you to Qiu’er. Qiu’er isn’t less gifted than me. She has the same power of destiny in her body, and she even has the pure bloodline of a Dragon God. In the future, it’ll be easier for her to reach the level of a God. I’ll pass your strengths to her at the last moment. Follow her, and continue to charge towards it.
Thank you for all these years. It’s because of all of you that I was able to turn from an ordinary boy into what I am today.
Huo Yuhao’s eyes were filled with guilt. However, he was extremely determined.
The Ice Empress turned frantic in his spiritual sea. She tried to muster her origin power to stop him.
The Skydream Iceworm was also frantic, and he furiously shouted, “Stupid!” His golden tears also flowed.
The little Snow Lady, who was originally on Huo Yuhao’s back, was forced back into Huo Yuhao’s body with a strong power and entered his spiritual sea too. The Snow Empress, who looked like a teenager right now, looked slightly sorrowful, and now seemed to be a little more quick-witted too.
However, they couldn’t do anything right now. Huo Yuhao dominated his own spiritual sea. The Skydream Iceworm was even the one who had personally conferred this authority onto him. Right now, that became their biggest restriction.
At this moment, they realized what Huo Yuhao was trying to do. However, they couldn’t do anything to stop him.
Huo Yuhao’s three eyes were extremely bright. Far into the east, the sky gradually turned marble-white. However, it couldn’t compare to the bright light that shone from his eyes.
Streaks of sword lights slashed towards Huo Yuhao. However, they were only able to brush past his body, no matter how strong and concentrated they were. There seemed to be an unprecedentedly strong force on his body that was protecting him and preventing any interruption.
A dim projection appeared behind Huo Yuhao before it turned illusory. This projection was himself.
It was a dim golden projection of Huo Yuhao. Right now, he seemed very peaceful and quiet. He shut his eyes and sat cross-legged. As he stretched his hands in front of him, his index fingers and thumbs formed a heart shape.
A strange golden fog started to rise from this projection. No, it wasn’t a fog. It was a flame instead. It was a flame that was burning!
Everything around him turned bright, as if dawn had arrived in advance. Every soul engineer from the Evileye Tyrant Soul Engineer Legion was moved without any reason. They were even unable to hold their soul tools anymore, and lowered them. They were all in a daze as they looked at the projection of the burning man.
Huo Yuhao seemed very huge and tall right now. There was a proud look in his eyes, as if he were watching all life. His smile was very gentle, but it also seemed to be a scornful smile, directed at his enemies.
He was burning. He had ignited his spiritual sea. Was he crazy? Could he actually do something like this?
Whether it was the Third Elder, the Fourth Elder or Wu Yu, who had just recovered from the blow she had sustained from Huo Yuhao’s Spiritual Shock, they were all astonished as they looked at Huo Yuhao.
Soul masters might choose to ignite their own soul power in the face of a crisis to generate extremely strong offensive strength. However, it was very difficult to stop such an ignition after it had started.
Even if it was stopped, the soul master’s cultivation would still be greatly affected, and he might sustain a permanent injury. If it couldn’t be stopped, his soul power would burn until there was nothing left, and he would die.
As a result, soul masters rarely chose to ignite their soul power, even in the face of a crisis.
As for igniting one’s spiritual power and spiritual sea, however, it was something that was unknown and unheard-of.
Spiritual power and spirits were magical existences no matter whether it was in the world of soul masters or soul engineers. No one could clearly explain what they were. Even for a spiritual-type soul master, his understanding of spiritual power was very limited if his cultivation wasn’t high enough.
