Chapter 126: Rainment of Light

    Book 14: The Finals!

    Chapter 126.1: Rainment of Light

    It was at this moment that the audience finally took notice of them. There was no need to even mention how much of a miserable state the two siblings were in. Disregarding Xiao Hongchen, even Meng Honchen's mouth and nose were covered in bloodstains. They seemed to have come to their senses at this moment, but they couldn't do anything other than reveal the shock in their eyes.

    Xiao Hongchen suddenly let out a muffled groan, and he directly fell to the floor. However, his eyes were actually filled with infatuation the moment before he collapsed.

    However, Meng Hongchen's eyes were only filled with shock. She couldn't believe that the city-overthrowing beauty that made even her look inferior was created by a fusion skill.

    The peerless beauty descended from the sky and swiftly landed in front of the duo, a chilly intent radiating from her golden eyes as she did so.

    At this moment, Meng Hongchen was finally able to clearly see the characters on the peerless beauty's forehead. This character was clearly a trident, and it was very small, seemingly only an inch wide. Moreover, it quietly faded as the peerless beauty landed. However, it left behind a noble sense of awe on her forehead, though it had only existed for a brief moment.

    "Goodbye." The young lady's red lips rose gently. With a gentle sweep of her wings, a three-colored halo of light immediately covered Xiao Hongchen and Meng Hongchen's bodies. However, it didn't seem to hurt them; it only sent their bodies off the tournament stage.

    Meng Hongchen didn't try to resist it. Due to Xiao Hongchen's heavy injuries, Hongchen's Yearning had been unleashed using her own soul power only. Furthermore, after it was forcefully interrupted by Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong's Spiritual Storm, they were struck with a heavy backlash. At this moment, they truly didn't possess any fighting strength at all.

    The tri-colored butterfly wings vanished, and the peerless beauty moved towards the very center of the tournament stage with a flash. A layer of frost formed wherever she passed.

    Wang Yan observed everything from below the tournament stage with a flabbergasted look in his eyes. He murmured, "We, we won? Elder Xuan, we won! We're the champions, we're truly the champions!" His voice was trembling. When he uttered his last sentence, he was already shouting in a hysterical manner.

    Elder Xuan was no calmer than Wang Yan. Every single wrinkle on his aged face seemed to be filled with vitality as he said, "They, just how did they do it? Was what they just used a fusion skill?"

    "Right, right!" Wang Yan said excitedly, "I was the only person who they told about that last fusion skill. If I'm not mistaken, Huo Yuhao said that that fusion skill was produced when his Ice Jade Scorpion fused with Wang Dong's Radiant Butterfly Goddess. It is called the Solitary Dance Amidst Frost, Raiment of Light. I didn't think that a fusion skill would be this, this beautiful! This is also the only fusion skill they possess which is controlled by Wang Dong."

    "We've won." The peerless beauty landed right in front of the Heavenfiend Douluo.

    However, this great referee still had a dazed look in his eyes as he looked at this young lady, whose age seemed to be in the double digits. His voice was clearly somewhat hoarse as he said, "Yes, you... you've won."

    After speaking, Huang Heyun seemed to slip slightly. He was only able to regain his footing after stabilising himself.

    Spiritual Storm wasn't just a pure spiritual-type attack, but an attack that could directly go through an opponent's spiritual sea to unceasingly attack their spirit by using various memories. It didn't do something as simple as destroying a target's spirit, but affected their consciousness.

    Although Huang Heyun was a Titled Douluo, he had endured far, far too many things in his life. He had watched his close relatives and friends die one by one, and he had buried that pain deep in his heart. As he didn't make any preparations to block Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong's Spiritual Storm, Huang Heyun was affected much more than Xiao Hongchen and Meng Hongchen.

    The tri-colored light vanished, and the peerless beauty once again turned into a bright, colorful halo. The halo of light quietly dissipated, revealing the two figures who were hugging each other.

    They were extremely pale, and they were both supporting and nestling up against each other as they quietly stood there.

    The tattoo of the Ice Jade Empress Scorpion on Huo Yuhao's back slowly faded away. However, Wang Dong had already fallen into a deep sleep against his chest. Only the golden trident on his forehead flickered quietly for a bit.

    However, Huo Yuhao wasn't able to see all this. Although he was barely able to stand up while supporting Wang Dong, overexhausting his body had caused him to gradually lose all six of his senses. He only felt a patch of darkness surround him, but he didn't feel any regret; at this moment, he only felt excitement and happiness. His last memory was that of him tightly hugging Wang Dong while standing on the tournament stage of the finals of the Continental Advanced Academy Soul Duelling Tournament with his back straight.

    At this exact moment, he felt as though his spiritual sea had been upgraded to a higher level amidst this happiness. Right after that, he didn't know what happened.

    At this moment, an uproarious cheer completely covered the entire tournament stage. Every single member of the audience had reddened faces due to their excitement.

    All of the waiting and hardships they had to endure were all worth it, in their opinion. The finals of this tournament could no longer be simply described using the word 'marvelous'. On the contrary, it was a classic that would be eternally engraved within their hearts!

    This was especially so for the curtain call, with Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong releasing their fourth fusion skill. The city-overthrowing peerless beauty formed by their Solitary Dance Amidst the Frost, Raiment of Light had been deeply engraved in all of their hearts.

    She was too beautiful, simply too beautiful. That was a type of beauty that simply didn't belong to the world of mortals.

    Perhaps that was simply the descent of the Goddess of Light.

    Every single person had a different definition of what a goddess was in their minds, but at this moment, that had all been replaced by the young lady who had been dancing alone amidst the frost. The figure of that peerless beauty had even been elevated to the level of worship in many of their hearts.

    That figure possessed a combination of beauty and strength, and was the most dazzling figure within the fight. Everything that had just occurred was simply too astonishing.

    The Heavenfiend Douluo Huang Jinxu forcefully took a deep breath, then forcefully shoved the scenes which were unceasingly flickering through his mind to the depths of his spiritual sea. He said loudly, "The 2-2-3 match has ended, and the winner is Shrek Academy. This year's Continental Advanced Academy Soul Duelling Tournament has come to an end. The final winner is the representative team from Shrek Academy!"

    The sounds of cheering were brought to a peak following his announcement. The entirety of the Star Luo Plaza was now boiling, and even many of the aristocrats and ministers who stood on the city walls couldn't help but yell out.

    Chapter 126.2: Rainment of Light

    The Star Luo Emperor, Xu Jiawei, had a somewhat flushed expression as well, as he was also extremely excited. The image of that empire-overthrowing beauty had been embedded in the depths of his heart as well!

    The White Tiger Duke was much calmer than him. He began to mutter to himself as he looked at the pair of youths who were embracing each other, "A willpower as tough as steel. They'll definitely become very useful in the future."

    The entire plaza had already turned into a sea of boiling emotions. Due to the heavy injuries suffered by both participating teams, the awards ceremony had to be delayed.

    The Taotie Douluo, Elder Xuan, had already appeared by the Sun Moon Imperial Soul Engineering Academy, blocking their path forward.

    "None of you are allowed to leave. Dispel the poison inflicted on my disciples first." Elder Xuan had a very cold and solemn gaze in his eyes, and he still held Ma Xiaotao, who was flickering with the flames of the Dark Phoenix, in his embrace.

    The teacher in charge of the Sun Moon Imperial Soul Engineering Academy was still somewhat confused about the entire matter. Since everything had happened so quickly, he didn't know just how they had lost the final match that they were originally guaranteed to win. The instant he saw that peerless beauty take the stage, Xiao Hongchen and Meng Hongchen were sent down from the stage.

    Why had Wang Dong and Huo Yuhao not hurt Meng Hongchen? This was because they wanted her to dispel the poison in their teammates' bodies.

    "Did you not hear what I just said?" As he speaking, Elder Xuan made a grabbing motion towards Meng Hongchen.

    "Wait a moment." The teacher in charge hurriedly blocked the path to Meng Hongchen. If possible, he truly wanted to resist Elder Xuan; he truly didn't wish to allow the absolutely astonishing members of Shrek Academy to continue living.

    The higher the hopes one had toward a certain thing, the larger the disappointment would be if one failed to achieve it. The pain he currently felt was similar to that of falling down from a tall mountain. He had to stay strong as the teacher in charge of his team, but he couldn't.

    He didn't dare, he truly didn't dare to obstruct Elder Xuan at this moment. Xiao Hongchen was now unconscious, while Meng Hongchen had suffered heavy injuries. If he couldn't bring them back, he wouldn't face a consequence as simple as losing his own life. Even his family would be implicated in this matter.

    "Elder Xuan, this is only a competition. I'll dispel the poison in your student's bodies." The teacher in charge forcefully suppressed the grief he felt in his heart and enunciated each word carefully.

    Elder Xuan nodded and said coldly, "That'd be for the best. Also, give me that sword that Ma Rulong used earlier."

    The teacher's expression immediately changed, "That won't be possible. That's a Class 8 soul tool that our Sun Moon Empire's Illustrious Virtue Hall forged. Its value is inestimable."

    "Let me ask you this. Are you going to give it, or not?" Elder Xuan's voice was as cold and tough as ever, and he didn't release any pressure either. However, his mere question caused the teacher to start sweating to the point where his shirt was drenched.

    Elder Xuan didn't look at him, but the unconscious Xiao Hongchen.

    The teacher's voice trembled somewhat as he said, "Elder Xuan, you are but a Transcendent Douluo. Don't tell me that you are going to bully the weak and make things difficult for us of the younger generation?"

    Elder Xuan said indifferently, "This old man disdains to do something like that, but you too have seen what has happened to the child in my hands. Xiaotao was affected by that soul tool of yours, causing a variation to her martial soul. It's hard to say whether she'll even be able to continue living. I won't bully the weak; I'll find that old fellow from the Illustrious Virtue Hall to explain things to him. These two kids should be his grandkids. I'll bring them back to Shrek Academy, and you can call that old bastard of yours to find me in Shrek Academy." With that, he made a grabbing motion towards the unconscious Xiao Hongchen.

    "Don't, I'll... I'll give you what you want." The teacher in charge of the Sun Moon Imperial Soul Engineering Academy nearly shattered the steel teeth in his mouth. How could he dare to let Elder Xuan take Xiao Hongchen and Meng Hongchen away?! If they were brought back to Shrek Academy, would they even be able to come back in one piece? When compared to the Judgement Sword, the Hongchen siblings were clearly much more important to the Sun Moon empire.

    The Judgement Sword quickly fell into Elder Xuan's hands. Supervised by Elder Xuan, Meng Hongchen had no choice but to recover her soul power using a Milk Bottle and save the people who had fallen unconscious due to the Vermillion Clear Icetoad's venom whilst she was in an extremely exhausted state. Fortunately, due to the fact that Michael had been struck by Bei Bei's Clustered Soulchasing Balls, she didn't make any vicious moves for fear of letting her teammate die of poisoning. Otherwise, the poison of her Vermillion Clear Icetoad could've been fatal.

    In the end, Elder Xuan left the other party with a bit of face. At the very least, he let the awakened Bei Bei dispel Michael's poison, and helped dispel the poison from the Oxhair Needle.

    Only then did both parties settle the various issues that had resulted from the match. Naturally, this was only on the surface. As for any repercussions which would occur as a result of this, they didn't bother caring about them for the time being.

    The fervent atmosphere in the Star Luo Plaza lasted for several hours. Due to the several thousand soldiers maintaining order within the city, the common folk gradually dispersed.

    For the sake of ending the crowded condition of the Star Luo Plaza, the Star Luo Emperor made a decree stating that the awards ceremony would not be open for public viewing.

    With this decree sent out, the common folk of Star Luo City began to leave. After all, a large majority of them didn't stay in the city itself. Moreover, the cramped conditions in the city had caused commodity prices to rise to a terrifying level. Without anything nice to see, would there be any meaning left in staying there?

    Due to the astonishing performances of Shrek Academy and the Sun Moon Imperial Soul Engineering Academy in the finals, the defenses of the Grand Imperial Star Hotel had been strengthened threefold. This was done to keep the masses from charging right into it as a result of their surging emotions.

    However, Huo Yuhao didn't know about any of this.

    By the time he woke up from his coma, it was already the afternoon of the day after.

    "How uncomfortable." Coughing, Huo Yuhao gradually woke up from his deep sleep, his eyes still somewhat dazed. He only felt his entire body go soft, as though all of his energy had been sucked away. Not only that, but all of his muscles were in an extremely sore state. Even after sleeping for so long, he didn't seem to have any signs of recovering his soul power.

    "This feeling of having everything sucked out from my body is really uncomfortable!" Huo Yuhao wasn't feeling anxious at all. As his consciousness gradually recovered, he discovered that although he had severely over-exhausted his body, he felt extraordinarily clear-headed after waking up. The memories of everything that had just occurred were clearly returning to him after he woke up, and he quickly remembered him and Wang Dong defeating their opponents in the finals.

    "We should've won. We're the final champions. We've protected Shrek Academy's glory!" His excitement caused his eyes to gradually light up. The current Huo Yuhao had just noticed that something had changed in his spiritual sea.

    As he gazed deep into himself, he was immediately overjoyed. His spiritual sea had increased in size by 25% at the very least. Not only that, but his spiritual power had become more condensed, and even the golden lights in his spiritual sea had brightened somewhat.

    At this exact moment, a figure suddenly appeared in Huo Yuhao's mind. It had a head of pinkish-blue long hair, a set of golden eyes, and peerless looks, as well as a faintly discernible golden trident.

    She, was she really the descent of the Radiant Goddess?
