Chapter 110: The Second Fusion Skill!

    "What're you waiting for? When that hard barrier softens, you have to break it."

    ......

    The Golden Road ended, revealing Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong's bodies. Huo Yuhao loosened his arms and stretched out his hands, while Wang Dong raised his right hand.

    They looked at each other, and saw a reflection of their own bodies in each other's eyes. At this moment, their souls were connected.

    Huo Yuhao cupped Wang Dong's right hand within his two palms as if he was protecting the most valuable treasure in the world. The instant his palms closed, Huo Yuhao's hands turned ice-white. On the other hand, Wang Dong's right hand turned a strange dark-gold. The three palms interlocked, causing a terrifying stream of air to suddenly surge from their bodies.

    The originally thick icy mist quickly rose into the air like a mushroom cloud, causing an indescribable sense of awe to appear with it. At this moment, the only people who could truly feel and see what was going on were Ling Luochen and Xu Sanshi.

    They were completely unable to describe how shocked they were feeling right now. The scene unfolding in front of them was just that shocking!

    The instant the intense white light interweaved with the dark-gold light, Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong's figures vanished. Right after that, a slender figure quietly appeared behind that light.

    This figure looked around two or so meters tall, and it had a slender, tall figure and a head of black hair draped over its shoulders. Its gorgeous changshan seemed to have been inlaid with diamonds, causing it to emanate a resplendent light. His eyes were jade-green; it wasn't an abstruse jade-green, but one that flickered with the light of a gem, and was filled with boundless might. In terms of appearances alone, he looked 80% similar to Huo Yuhao. Perhaps, this was simply how he would look after growing up.

    The instant he appeared, the Icemist in the air started to surge towards him at an astonishing rate, making it seem as though the rivers were flowing back into the sea. Even Ling Luochen's own soul power started to be swallowed at a rapid pace.

    Ling Luochen was relatively clever, and thus she didn't try to resist or obstruct it. On the contrary, she did all she could to release her Icemist. Although the Icemist started to rapidly vanish, Ling Luochen was able to maintain the portion of it that covered them.

    This was a figure that was clearly incorporeal, yet felt very real. He extended his right hand, plunging it into the ball of light in front of him. The light suddenly solidified, and the figure suddenly vanished into thin air right after that. The instant he disappeared, Xu Sanshi and Ling Luochen felt the exact same feeling in their hearts-ferocity!

    In the next instant, the space in front of the Star Barrier instantaneously shattered. Then, an enormous hammer appeared.

    The head of this hammer was as black as ink, but its two ends each had a sharp protrusion that was jade-green. On the other hand, its handle was fully inlaid with diamonds.

    The instant it appeared, a peculiar, never-before-seen whimpering sound rang out in the air. It was as though the air itself was weeping due to its existence. The two protrusions on the head of the hammer shone with a jade-green light, and the head itself shone with a dark-gold light. The handle of the hammer also shone with an icy-white light, and the three different colors simultaneously exploded out. Right after that, the super hammer that was more than ten meters long, and whose head was more than three metres wide, turned blood-red in color.

    All other traces of light seemed to have been swallowed by that blood-red light, and even the Star Barrier in front of it started to tremble.

    It was as though an invisible hand was controlling this enormous hammer. In the next instant, it fell.

    The only thing Princess Jiu Jiu could see was the instant that the hammer descended. She only felt like a streak of blood had flashed past the outer parts of the Star Barrier, and right after that, she suddenly felt an enormous blow strike her chest. Then, a clang that resembled the sound of shattering came from the Starcrown on her forehead.

    The rhombus-shaped gem set in the center of the Starcrown actually started to show cracks. Right after that, the Star Barrier instantly collapsed.

    The bloody light disappeared without a trace, and the Icemist on the tournament stage vanished along with it.

    Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong reappeared on the tournament stage. Only, the current Wang Dong was leaning on Huo Yuhao's back, clearly having lost consciousness.

    Huo Yuhao was still clear-headed as he looked forward with a burning gaze in his eyes. He pressed on his forehead with his right hand, then pointed his second, third, and fourth fingers into the air.

    Immediately, a mysterious green light flashed through the sky before vanishing. The light, however, was directed towards the absolute defense barrier that trapped Ma Xiaotao.

    Right after he pointed his fingers into the sky, the gaze in Huo Yuhao's eyes darkened. He seemingly indifferently looked towards the distant Princess Jiu Jiu, then fell to the ground with Wang Dong with a trace of arrogance, but even more satisfaction in his eyes.

    "Ding-"

    The metal ball located above the Absolute Defense Barrier suddenly let out a crisp cry, then shook violently. The originally-dazzling golden light it emitted started to darken at an astonishing rate, before vanishing within two breaths of time. The metal ball turned grey, and the barrier it generated became extremely thin.

    Without the Icemist concealing the stage, the audience and the Star Luo Emperor were all able to clearly see what was going on.

    Just like his younger sister, the Star Luo Emperor suddenly blurted out, 'impossible'.

    From the outside, the Star Barrier looked like Princess Jiu Jiu's fourth soul skill. In reality, however, it couldn't be used easily. The Starcrown's might far exceeded that of ordinary martial souls, and even a few top-ranked ones wouldn't be able to go against it. However, its wielder needed to cultivate arduously in order to use it.

    A soul master who possessed the Starcrown could only cultivate at night, as they would need to absorb star power to further increase their cultivation. Furthermore, their soul skills could only be used by consuming some of their accumulated star power. Of which, the skill that needed the most star power was the Star Barrier.

    The eighteen gold stars that created the Star Barrier needed a full eighteen days to be fully absorbed. However, the strength of the Star Barrier would continuously increase following its owner's increase in cultivation; it was an extremely rare and powerful skill that wasn't affected by the quality of the soul ring that bestowed it. However, its drawbacks were extremely obvious. After using it once, its owner would need to wait eighteen days in order to use it again.

    It was because of this exact reason that the Star Barrier's defensive powers were extraordinarily tyrannical. It wasn't just a defense skill, but one that allowed the current Princess Jiu Jiu to possess the power of a defense-type Soul Emperor. This was the reason why she and the Emperor were so confident in this match.

    However, this tyrannical defense had been blown apart at this moment. Looking at Shrek Academy's current abilities, there was no way that any of them should've been able to achieve this feat. However, the destruction of the Star Barrier signified one thing-that was subjugation. One of Shrek Academy's four students who were previously hidden within the Icemist was able to subdue the Star Barrier.

    Right after that, an even more astonishing scene occurred. A problem had suddenly come up with the powerful Class 7 soul tool that was known as the Absolute Defense Barrier.

    ......

    "The Soul-Devouring Carving Knife didn't disappear after I purified it. The enormous life energy contained within the Life Gold isn't something that you're able to fathom. Because of that, you now possess a completely new carving knife, one that can fully display the true might of the Life Gold. After thinking about it for a while, I've decided to name it the Life Guardian. This Life Guardian can not only bestow life energy, but also take it away. This special ability of stripping one's life energy away shall be called Judgement, and the life energy taken away will be absorbed back into the Life Guardian.

    Every single person in this world possesses life energy, but Judgement only targets existences which do not guard their own life energy. If you encounter any resistance, it'll lose all of its effects. However, it can be a very powerful weapon against the soul tools from your world."

    -Electrolux

    ......

    Ma Xiaotao wouldn't be Ma Xiaotao if she wasn't able to grasp an opportunity like this. While she was trapped by the Absolute Defense Barrier, she had continuously tried to break free of her bindings.

    Just what kind of temper did Ma Xiaotao have? She was basically a can of gunpowder that would explode with just a light spark. However, she absolutely wasn't the type of person who would let anger go to her head; on the contrary, she had hidden her intelligence under her outward explosiveness.

    After launching a few attacks as a test, she understood that she wouldn't be able to destroy this barrier with her level of cultivation. At the very least, she wouldn't be able to do it within a short period of time. After that, she made the smartest choice available-that was to directly sit in a cross-legged position within the Absolute Defense Barrier and sense the strength of the barrier while recovering the soul power she had drained earlier. At the same time, she continued to observe what was going on outside the barrier.

    Ma Xiaotao knew that she could hasten the destruction of the Absolute Defense Barrier if she were to stake everything on one attack. However, since their opponents had used a soul tool like this to counter her, she understood that she wouldn't be able to break free like Dai Yueheng had, no matter how she attacked. Since that was the case, she chose to wait patiently.

    No matter what tactics their opponents were using, the match wouldn't be over as long as she wasn't defeated. Although Shrek Academy's overall strength would suffer dramatically if they were to lose her, the team Dai Yueheng led wouldn't be defeated so easily. At the very least, their opponents would have to pay an extremely heavy price to defeat them. However, a soul tool like this would be going against the heavens if it was able to be used for a long period of time! Because of that, Ma Xiaotao would be able to take her opponents on in her peak condition after the barrier finally expired.

    She had been paying close attention to everything going on on the battlefield, observing each and every one of her opponents and how much they had endured in the battle. What she was waiting for was a chance to counterattack. She had never lacked any confidence, because confidence came from strength. Ma Xiaotao knew that her team would absolutely never fall easily as long as she hadn't fallen.

    However, Ma Xiaotao didn't think that her chance would come so quickly. The instant the Star Barrier was destroyed, she was greatly astonished. She absolutely didn't think that the four of them could've destroyed the barrier that even Dai Yueheng couldn't from the outside.

    At that moment, Huo Yuhao had an extremely pale face as he supported the unconscious Wang Dong. However, his eyes were just that resolute. Although there was an age difference of seven years between the two, Ma Xiaotao had no choice but to admit that she had been moved by Huo Yuhao's eyes at that moment.

    This resolute, stubborn unyieldingness from a youth who wasn't even thirteen gave her an indescribable sense of shock. He was like a towering, stable mountain that made people trust him.

    After that, Ma Xiaotao witnessed everything occur. The only person who could hear the crisp shattering of the Absolute Defense Barrier was her, who was trapped within it. She didn't know how Huo Yuhao had done it, but she didn't need to ponder this question at this moment.

    Her silent flames once again rose into the sky, and when her phoenix once again cried out in her voice, its flames had reached an incomparably terrifying degree of heat.

    It carried a few traces of demonism within it, causing Ma Xiaotao's eyes to turn dark red. Right after that, her phoenix wings once again blossomed from her back. However, the flames that appeared alongside her wings were now dark red as well!

    The sonorous cry of a phoenix carried boundless tyrannical might and anger as it mightily rang out, its demonic, dark red flames covering its wings surging forth as it did so. The Absolute Defense Barrier completely shattered in its wake, making it seem as though Ma Xiaotao was just crushing the last weed in her path. At the same time, her body shot out like a cannon shell made of fire.

    She didn't fly towards Princess Jiu Jiu, but the four soul masters who were grouped together.

    The students from Shrek Academy had never lacked in coordination. The instant Ma Xiaotao started moving, Dai Yueheng exploded out. Although he'd been previously injured, his injuries weren't severe. His powerful physique that had been strengthened threefold had turned him into the person with the sturdiest body on the battlefield. His body was practically intertwined with Ma Xiaotao's as he rushed out, but the person he chose to run towards was Jiu Jiu.

    The soul master in front of Princess Jiu Jiu who hadn't made a move since the start of the battle finally stood up. A pair of enormous wings suddenly unfurled, blocking Dai Yueheng's path like a set of wooden doors.

    This was Sheng Yi, a defense-type Soul King whose martial soul was the Gigant Eagle.

    Although Jiu Jiu's Starcrown was powerful, its drawbacks were very obvious. The Starcrown wouldn't give too much of a boost to its user's physique, and because of that, Princess Jiu Jiu's physique was still one of her weaknesses, even if she had an auxiliary-type soul skill strengthening her defense, or even her attacks. Because of that, she always had this defense-type Soul King protecting her, so as to avoid any accidents from occuring.

    Dai Yueheng's eyes went wide as he roared, "Screw off!"

    He charged tyrannically forward, then used both his palms to aggressively catch the wings which were swatting at him.

    As a defense-type Soul King, Sheng Yi wasn't so easily taken care of. His second and fourth soul rings lit up simultaneously, and his enormous wings turned a metallic grey, then burst forth with a metallic light.

    An ear-piercing sound caused by friction rang out, accompanied by countless sparks flying about. It seemed as though both parties were metallic weapons which were clashing with each other.

    Considering how much rage Ma Xiaotao had pent up inside her, how could Dai Yueheng's mood be any better? As the eldest son of the White Tiger Duke, the arrogance he possessed in his heart was no less than hers. If it weren't for the disparity between their cultivation levels, he would've fought for the position of leader already. Although he looked much more mature than his younger brother from the outside, there wasn't too big of a difference between them on the inside.

    There was no need to even mention how depressed Dai Yueheng had been feeling, seeing that he had been ganged up on and even injured by his opponents. At this moment, he was only facing a single opponent! More importantly, Princess Jiu Jiu had been heavily injured by the destruction of the Star Barrier, and her Starglory Spell had been interrupted as well. In other words, her companions couldn't provide her any assistance at all.

    In a situation like this, the outcome of a battle between a Soul King and a Soul Emperor could be imagined.

    If an ordinary assault-type Soul Emperor fought against a defense-type Soul King, the latter might be able to hold their ground for a few breaths. Unfortunately, Sheng Yi was facing a Soul Emperor who possessed the White Tiger, one who was not only extremely good at close-combat, but one who had an extremely tyrannical physique!

    Although Sheng Yi's wings-which were as tough as metal-blocked Dai Yueheng's path, the latter shoved his sharp claws into the former's wings amidst an ear-piercing sound caused by friction.

    Dai Yueheng let out another explosive roar, and a fierce, white light surged through his eyes as he unleashed the White Tiger's Extermination for the second time.

    However, his attack struck only air this time. A powerful absorption force suddenly descended from the sky, causing Sheng Yi to vanish into thin air; only, his wings now had ten additional gashes on them.

    This time, the Heavenfiend Douluo had made a move. There was no doubt that Sheng Yi would die if he were to take on Dai Yueheng's attack, so he had no choice but to intervene in a situation like this. While he was able to guarantee Sheng Yi's safety, this was equivalent to announcing his departure from the match.

    While everything over at Dai Yueheng's side went smoothly, Ma Xiaotao revealed the strength befitting of the Continental Advanced Academy Soul Duelling Tournament's reigning champion.

    A dark red fire propelled her body forward, making it seem as though she was a real phoenix-an Evil Fire Phoenix.

    There was no doubt about it-she was now using the completely unrestrained evil fire. In the past, she would always suppress the evil aura hidden within her phoenix flames during battles or cultivation sessions; that was the only way she could prevent it from affecting her state of mind. However, suppressing it would undoubtedly affect her cultivation to a certain extent. This was because she would have to use some of her energy to suppress it. Not only that, but the evil aura within her was a part of her strength in the first place!

    At this exact moment, the dark red flames she revealed were her true, unsuppressed power-the full power of the Evil Fire Phoenix.

    From another standpoint, the strength of the current Ma Xiaotao's martial soul had already exceeded that of her ancestor from the first generation's Shrek's Seven Monsters, Ma Hongjun. This was because Ma Hongjun had relied on a heavenly treasure to resolve the issue of his evil aura, turning his martial soul into the pure Fire Phoenix in the process. Although the purified Fire Phoenix was even more overwhelmingly powerful, it lacked the blazing strength that came from the evil aura.

    Without the support of the Starglory Spell, Huang Heyun's team of four were bogged down for a brief moment. They were originally pursuing Dai Yueheng, but seeing Ma Xiaotao suddenly charge towards them had left them in a daze. Furthermore, they had been facing Ma Xiaotao horizontally. In other words, Ma Xiaotao was now suddenly flanking them on the side.

    The lack of coordination that stemmed from a team of four once again appeared, as the four of them could only quickly turn around. Huang Heyun was left in an even more flustered state. He had been previously suppressed by Ma Xiaotao, and her sudden appearance after breaking through the Absolute Defense Barrier had crushed him in terms of impressiveness.

    Panicked, Huang Heyun didn't dare to waste any time. He forcefully pounded his own chest, and his eyes instantly turned blood-red. Then, he let out a tiger's roar, causing a black hurricane to instantly sweep towards Ma Xiaotao.

    This was Huang Heyun's fifth soul skill, his strongest attack-Darkness Hurricane. Strengthened by his three teammates, this attack of his even seemed to have some substance to it. The instant it appeared, the air on the tournament stage seemed to melt. At the same time, this hurricane had a strong absorption force, which was now targeting Ma Xiaotao.

    After using this attack, Huang Heyun's veins turned purple. He was nearing the limit of his physical endurance, and there was a high chance that he would self-destruct if he were to use another soul skill.

    Dugu Shangshan, who was standing behind him, had no choice but to remove his hands from Huang Heyun's body. He now took Huang Heyun's place, but the former quartet now turned into a trio.

    This attack had been launched by the combined powers of four people, and it was even Huang Heyun's strongest soul skill. From their point of view, even if it wasn't able to directly take down Ma Xiaotao, it would at least be able to severely injure her.

    However, they didn't expect the valiant Ma Xiaotao to choose to not take it on directly.

    With a sudden flap of her enormous wings of fire, Ma Xiaotao accelerated as she was sucked towards the powerful hurricane.

    At this moment, her advantage in terms of cultivation was revealed. They were both Soul Emperors, but Dai Yueheng was five ranks lower than her. She was already Rank 67, and she wasn't too far from the Soul Sage rank. After releasing her full power and bringing the level of her flames to that of evil fire, even a Soul Sage who had fused their element with their soul power might possibly lose to the current her.

    Although she couldn't break free of that absorption force, a strange scene occurred as she flapped her wings. It wasn't her who was drawn into the Darkness Hurricane, but the hurricane that was drawn towards her.

    As her feet spouted jets of blazing flame, Ma Xiaotao's body shot out. The Darkness Hurricane that was nearing her immediately slowed down greatly as it was blasted by the two lava-like jets of dark-reddish fire. Furthermore, it even seemed to be damaged slightly, causing it to be reduced slightly in size. However, Ma Xiaotao was able to borrow the force from her two leg soul bones to explosively increase in speed. Flying in an arc, she brushed past the pursuit of the Darkness Hurricane and flew straight towards Dugu Shangshan's trio.

    Her fifth soul ring lit up in midair, and the phoenix flames by her side suddenly formed halos of fiery light. These fiery halos swept behind Ma Xiaotao, and she let out a fierce shout as she once again sped up. Her figure vanished within the dark-red flames, and she transformed into a true Fire Phoenix as she instantly appeared in front of Dugu Shangshan.

    An even stranger scene appeared, as the fiery rings of light that were swept backwards seemed to damage the Darkness Hurricane. Although they weren't strong enough to completely destroy it, they were still able to obstruct and weaken it time over time. By the time that Ma Xiaotao had reached Dugu Shangshan, over half of the Darkness Hurricane had dissipated.

    Dugu Shangshan was simply unable to do anything. Evading her was completely impossible; how could the the three of them defeat Ma Xiaotao in speed?

    His fifth soul ring flashed as he released the Darkdemon Tiger's most powerful attack. However, the three Soul Kings behind him were no longer able to obstruct the raging Ma Xiaotao's advance.

    "Boom-" The entire tournament stage was engulfed in an explosion of dark red fire. The instant that Ma Xiaotao's blazing flames blossomed out, the audience was only able to see three figures soar into the air, rescued by the Heavenfiend Douluo. However, the three of them had suffered heavy injuries during the violent collision between the two parties; the Nine Transformations Soulrite behind them had been shattered completely.

    Oh, wait, four figures had shot into the air. Huang Heyun had also been rescued by the Heavenfiend Douluo after collapsing due to overexertion.

    It wasn't just Dai Yueheng and Ma Xiaotao who'd simultaneously ended their battles: Bei Bei also defeated his extremely troublesome opponent on the other side of the arena at that moment. Of course, he hadn't just relied on his own power.

    The Lightning Falcon was simply too quick, and even possessed the ability to use lightning to some extent. As such, it was able to resist Bei Bei's paralysis. Fortunately for Bei Bei, his Blue Lightning Tyrant Dragon was sufficiently strong, thus he'd been able to persist through the entire battle. Granted, he'd been left in an injured and weary state after the Star Barrier broke down.

    The instant that the Star Barrier broke down, Chen Xiaojie felt that something was off. He immediately wanted to use his most powerful attack to deal with Bei Bei, but a black streak had appeared behind the latter at that exact moment. The instant he exploded out with all of his power, a thick and solid shield that was filled with the aura of ice faced him.

    The Mysterious Underworld Displacement had finally been revealed in this match. Only, the person that had been displaced was on Shrek's team.

    Even though Bei Bei's injuries were rather heavy, a large majority of them were only flesh wounds. He didn't hesitate to immediately jump back into the fight when Xu Sanshi took his place. Furthermore, he made his move at just the right time, as Chen Xiaojie's entire body was in a sluggish state from his previous attack at that moment.

    Xu Sanshi naturally wasn't able to slow Chen Xiaojie down with his strength; his control-type soul skills weren't of much use towards the incomparably quick Chen Xiaojie, who even had a cultivation level that exceeded his. However, Shrek's team still had another control-type soul master who'd been trapped for quite a long time!

    The instant that Xu Sanshi switched places with Bei Bei, an icy blue halo of light appeared beneath Chen Xiaojie.

    This was Ling Luochen's fifth soul skill, Icebrilliant Halo.

    However, the Icebrilliant Halo wasn't used to trap her opponents, but rather spread toward outwards from the epicenter. Under Ling Luochen's control, the halo of light instantly spread outwards.

    No matter how fast the Lightning Falcon was, it wasn't faster than the release of a soul skill, not to mention an omnidirectional one. He was naturally struck by it.

    Ling Luochen didn't have Huo Yuhao's assistance, thus her Icebrilliant Halo didn't contain his Ultimate Ice. However, it was still completely possible for her to temporarily freeze an agility-type soul master who was both weaker than her, and who didn't specialise in defense. After all, the fact that control suppressed agility had been known by everyone since the olden days.

    And what did a rascal like Xu Sanshi specialise at doing? There was no doubt that he was amazing at pelting a stone at someone who was already on the ground! He immediately used his third soul skill, Mysterious Underworld Force, followed by his first, Mysterious Underworld Quake, then smashed his shield into Chen Xiaoji repeatedly.

    Even though his attack power had never been worth mentioning, being hit by a shield still wouldn't feel good. Only people who'd taken the Shield of the Xuanwu Turtle head-on would understand how heavy it felt. Strengthened by the Mysterious Underworld Force, the Mysterious Underworld Quake's stunning effect landed on Chen Xiaojie's body and shot him towards the extremely angry Bei Bei.

    Bei Bei laughed, his smile as warm and scholarly as ever...

    Afterwards, a series of thunderclaps rang out on the tournament stage. Although the Heavenfiend Douluo was a Titled Douluo, even he felt somewhat nervous rescuing every participant at the last moment. This was especially so considering the fact that three battles had ended simultaneously.

    As such, he naturally chose to deal with the person left in the most dangerous condition. Even though Chen Xiaojie was getting wildly beaten up by Bei Bei, he was still a Soul King, while the latter was only a Soul Ancestor. As such, the Heavenfiend Douluo naturally didn't think that Chen Xiaojie would suffer any heavy injuries. Regardless of what one said, Bei Bei still looked like a rather warm-hearted person.

    Unfortunately, the Heavenfiend Douluo didn't know how two-faced this 'warm-looking man' was,

    Bei Bei had previously been beaten up by Chen Xiaojie god-knows how many times, thus he was now all bruised up! He'd been oppressed for too long! Bei Bei wasn't a person who would bite the hand that fed him, but he was definitely a person who would exact vengeance on those that wronged him.

    He slapped Chen Xiaojie's shoulder with his Thunderous Dragon Claw, sending him straight to the ground. Afterwards, Bei Bei leapt into the air, pointed his elbow downwards, and slammed into Chen Xiaojie's body.

    In an even more violent move, Xu Sanshi leapt into the air the same instant that Bei Bei did, and proceeded to slam into Chen Xiaojie alongside him.

    Chen Xiaojie let out a muffled groan from the pain. Before he could regain his ability to move, Bei Bei used Vigorous Thunderbolt, which sent countless tendrils of lightning into his body.

    Naturally, Xu Sanshi was left shaking from the lightning that struck him. He immediately sent Bei Bei-who was lying underneath him-flying with a kick.

    Once he got up, Bei Bei immediately used eighteen consecutive Thunderous Dragon Claw strikes on Chen Xiaojie. A wave of lightning swept towards him...

    Chen Xiaojie resembled a piece of charcoal that had been barbecued by the time that the Heavenfiend Douluo rescued him from Bei Bei's clutches.

    In reality, only seven or eight breaths of time had passed since the battlefield had changed. What Team Shrek had displayed wasn't just coordination, but explosiveness.

    Six of the seven students from Star Luo Academy had been eliminated. As Dai Yueheng stood in front of the staggering Princess Jiu Jiu, he didn't attack her. Instead, he gazed at her with a calm gaze.

    Princess Jiu Jiu had already retreated to the very edge of the tournament stage at this point in time. The instant she'd been attacked, her mental state had been affected. The match had practically already ended while she was trying to recover her mental state.

    Princess Jiu Jiu mind was somewhat blank. She truly wanted to say, I haven't even used my strongest attack yet. However, she clearly understood that there was no longer any meaning in doing so. Even if her Starcrown was stronger, she couldn't take on the entirety of Shrek's team by herself.

    "Jiu Jiu, just surrender." Dai Yueheng said indifferently. The Starlight Auction clearly wasn't the first time that they'd met. The gaze he looked at her with was somewhat mysterious, and even carried a few faint traces of warmth.

    "I'm not surrendering to you." Jiu Jiu said coldly. She then turned around and jumped off the tournament stage, signalling the end of the team fight.

    The match had been quite short, so much so that a large majority of the audience hadn't managed to witness the most brilliant and intense scenes that had occurred.

    However, this intense battle was definitely the most marvelous and fierce battle in the tournament to date.

    From Star Luo Academy completely controlling the tempo of the entire battle, to Shrek Academy's sudden reversal and explosiveness. The entire battle had not only been intense, but had also been extremely exciting. This was especially true for Shrek's team, who had been feeling palpitations in their heart throughout the entire fight.

    Ma Xiaotao watched her opponent leap down from the stage, then immediately turned around and flew to Ling Luochen. With a hoarse voice, she said, "Help me suppress it, quick."

    At that moment, her eyes were completely dark red, and flickered with a savage light that seemed like it could swallow one whole.

    Ling Luochen didn't dare to waste any time. She quickly placed her icy staff on Ma Xiaotao's forehead, causing an Icebrilliant Halo to appear and forcibly suppress her evil fire that was about to blow up.

    A chilly sensation stimulated Ma Xiaotao's body, and after a bout of shivering, her expression became slightly better. However, the dark red light in her eyes didn't completely recede.

    After watching Princess Jiu Jiu leap off the stage, Dai Yueheng was left feeling somewhat blank. He quickly turned around, and a slightly strange-and even somewhat chilly-light flashed through his eyes as he looked at the fallen Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong.

    Right! It wasn't him who'd defeated Princess Jiu Jiu. At that time, he'd already received a few injuries. Furthermore, he hadn't possessed enough strength to even defeat the quartet that had faced him. Perhaps they wouldn't have been able to immediately chase after him, but they definitely could've taken care of Bei Bei, who'd been trapped by Chen Xiaojie. At that time, how long could he survive in the fight if he were to have to take on the entire team by himself? It would've been hard to tell the results of the following battle. At the very least, the scales of victory would've been tipped in his opponent's favor.

    However, the people who'd truly pulled against the strong tide were the two youths who had collapsed. However, just how had they done it? Even though they were now unconscious, they were the true highlights of Shrek's team in this match. It could be said that they'd dominated the match despite only Ling Luochen and Xu Sanshi clearly witnessing what they'd done.
