Chapter 139: Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear

    Wang Dong and Xiao Xiao's expressions changed when Huo Yuhao talked about the corpse explosion that had happened back then. An evil soul master who was only a Soul King managed to exterminate almost all of Team Shrek's official team members. Even Ma Xiaotao and Dai Yueheng were heavily injured. In the tournament, they witnessed how powerful these 2 soul emperors were! They even possessed soul bones. They only thought that evil soul masters were too frightening then, but didn't realize that Huo Yuhao possess a similar ability too.

    The Ice Explosion Technique and corpse explosion were very similar, but they were also different in their own ways. Corpse explosion was a direct explosion of a corpse, but it required the injection of a poison. The Envoy of the Death God had injected the poison in the cave then, and all the corpses were infected with the poison. They were then induced to explode. The timing of the explosion couldn't be controlled. The Ice Explosion Technique was advanced in this aspect. Not only was the timing of the explosion controllable, but it could even be used as long as the opponent was frozen. That's why the Ice Explosion Technique was highly regarded in the Starlight auction house after it appeared.

    Of course, one couldn't bear the Ice Jade Scorpion Left Arm Bone's intensity without Ultimate Ice due to the domineering Ice Explosion Technique. That's why this soul bone eventually landed in Huo Yuhao's hands. This was his first time using it, but its power was beyond what he had expected. The explosive force of a ten thousand year soul beast could rival Ma Xiaotao's strongest attack, and might even be superior to it.

    "Are you trying to scare me to death?!" Elder Xuan's voice rang out at this moment.

    He had been observing the 3 of them. From afar, he became more relaxed after he saw the 3 of them retreating into the forest and concealing themselves well using Imitation. But he didn't expect an explosion to happen so suddenly.

    Elder Xuan's heart almost jumped out of his mouth when the Ice Explosion rang out. He was extremely sensitive now after the last lesson. Furthermore, he was well-aware of what the 3 of them meant to the academy. They all had twin martial souls!

    That's why he rushed over instantly. After he saw the three of them who appeared dejected and heard Huo Yuhao's description of the Ice Explosion, he revealed himself and vented his frustration.

    "Elder Xuan." The three of them greeted.

    Elder Xuan lifted his hand and smashed his wine gourd on Huo Yuhao's head. Huo Yuhao spat out his tongue as his head was struck. "Rascal, be careful of playing with fire. No, playing with ice and causing harm to yourself. If something happens to you, how I can account to Elder Mu? You didn't even try it before you used such an uncontrollable soul skill. What if all of you were blown apart because you were too close? Don't tell me you can control the explosive force."

    Huo Yuhao was a little indignant as he retorted, "But I can't find a ten thousand year soul beast in the academy to try this on."

    "Uhhh..." That was true, as Shrek Academy did have ten thousand year soul beasts. But they were valuable resources, and couldn't be used for experiments.

    The radiance in Elder Xuan's eyes flashed, and he looked to the other side of the area that had exploded.

    A burly figure wobbled out. This figure took unsteady steps, as if it could collapse at any time.

    It was a huge bear that was huge and tall, but had suffered many injuries. The fur of this huge bear was dark gold, but it was stained with a large amount of dark red blood now.

    One of its front limbs had already disappeared, including the shoulder blade. It was bleeding from many places, and its eyes flashed with a dim green light.

    On the other side of its body, its claws were extremely long as they reached more than 2 feet in length. It was still bursting with energy although it was covered entirely in blood as it wobbled.

    "That's the bear from just now." Xiao Xiao said in shock.

    After Huo Yuhao explained the Ice Explosion Technique, they reckoned that the bear must have been blown to pieces. After all, Huo Yuhao was unaware of the Ice Explosion Technique's might beforehand. It was not abnormal to make such a mistake.

    However, they hadn't expected that the huge bear would survive the explosion, and only be sent flying by the explosive force.

    The three of them could sense the aura of death even at the borders of the area that had exploded. Their ears were still ringing now. And the huge bear had borne the explosion right at the center of it! But only one of its limbs had been blown apart, and it hadn't died yet.

    How strong was its defense to survive such a blast? No wonder it wasn't afraid of a ten thousand year Deviltiger Cat with its thousand year cultivation. This was the difference in species. It was just like how the youngest giant dragon was stronger than the most powerful lizard. This huge bear possessed a shocking strength indeed.

    The three of them were certain that they couldn't beat this bear even if they teamed up together. Their offense was unlikely to overcome the defense of this bear. Unless Huo Yuhao could freeze its body and use the Ice Explosion Technique, they didn't have any chance at all.

    "Oh, a Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear. Why would this soul beast appear around the perimeter of Star Dou Forest?" The bear looked extremely pathetic right now. In addition, the three of them couldn't identify it because it was very rare. But Elder Xuan was very experienced, and could identify it easily.

    The 'Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bears'; a soul beast with the title 'Earth Render.' They were the greatest of the most powerful soul beasts, and were belligerents in the Star Dou Forest.

    After Huo Yuhao returned to Shrek Academy, he had specially researched the Ten Great Savage Beasts. He seemed to recall the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear being one of them.

    Soul beasts generally specialized in certain traits. For example, they could be very speedy, offensively or defensively inclined, etc. The Deviltiger Cat, for example specialized in speed. Its offensive strength relied on its extreme speed.

    The Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear was an anomaly. Its specialty was offense and defense, which was conflicting. Its dark golden fur contained powerful defensive strength, while its pair of frightening claws was frightening offensively. The Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear was even rumored to be able to challenge a giant dragon. It was very uncommon for a Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear to appear in the perimeter of Star Dou Forest.

    Although this Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear was critically injured, it still maintained its sensitive hearing. It heard Elder Xuan's voice, and released a furious roar that sounded very threatening. But it stopped in its tracks. It didn't continue to advance forward. The painful lesson that it had received earlier had left it extremely wary.

    Elder Xuan revealed a slight smile on his face and said, "Fortunately, I wasn't scared for nothing. Your luck is pretty good. Not only is this fellow suitable, but it's even beyond my expectations. Let me do it."

    He didn't dare to let the three of them face the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear. It possessed frightening offensive ability. The three of them would definitely be killed if they were struck by it.

    Elder Xuan arrived in front of the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear as his figure flashed. The Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear reacted very quickly. It still managed to attack and mount its own defense even though it was critically injured.

    A layer of dark golden flowing light surged out from its undamaged fur. This layer of light didn't stick to its fur, but remained slightly above it. Its fur started to stand up like needles. At the same time, it waved its claw and clawed towards Elder Xuan.

    Its 2 foot claw already seemed very exaggerated. But the three of them understood the true meaning of a terrorclaw when it waved its claw. Its claw tripled in size, growing to 2 meters in length. Its sharp claw flashed with a dark golden radiance as it clawed towards Elder Xuan. Even a mountain rock would be split into pieces if it were struck by this claw, let alone a human!

    However, it's a pity that it was facing Elder Xuan. Even a top-ranked Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear might not fancy meeting Elder Xuan, while this bear only had a thousand year cultivation.

    Elder Xuan straightened his expression, and a yellow radiance flashed before disappearing. The thousand year Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear's body remained still without moving. It was clear that its lower limbs had sunk into the ground.

    Elder Xuan rose up and slapped his palm on the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear's head. The Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear's bones were shattered.

    "Xiao Xiao, come over!" Elder Xuan shouted.

    Xiao Xiao knew what Elder Xuan wanted her to do. She rushed over to Elder Xuan's side. Elder Xuan gave her a sharp blade and plucked out a patch of dark gold fur from the back of the bear's neck. Xiao Xiao expended some effort before she managed to stab the blade into the bear's neck. She pierced the nerves of the bear's central nervous system, which caused it to die.

    Xiao Xiao was wondering whether she could kill this Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear on her own if Elder Xuan wasn't around.

    Its defensive strength was too frightening.

    A dazzling, bright purple soul ring surfaced as the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear was killed.

    Elder Xuan spoke after making some careful observations. "Its cultivation is around 2000 years. It'll be fine for you to absorb it with your current powers and the enhancements made to your body by the 2 pieces of soul bones. You can begin."

    "Thank you, Teacher." Xiao Xiao was excited as she sat cross-legged on the ground. She started to absorb the soul ring. The purplish soul ring turned into a streak of flowing light and fused with her body. Xiao Xiao was suddenly covered by a layer of dim purple light.

    Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong had rushed over by now. They were a little envious as they looked at Xiao Xiao. Although the quality of a soul ring was mainly decided by its age, the species of the soul beast also mattered. A powerful soul beast would naturally bring about a powerful soul skill.

    Elder Xuan didn't sit still afterwards. He reached his hand over to the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear, then revealed an excited look. He formed a knife-like stance with his hand, then amputated the bear's right forelimb. He dug through it, unearthing a weird-looking bone.

    This bone was dark gold, and intense undulations of soul power emanated from it. It was a soul bone. Xiao Xiao's luck wasn't just simply good-it was tremendously good!

    But this soul bone was different from conventional right arm soul bones. To be precise, it was a right palm bone.

    The bone wasn't large, but 5 long blades were on top of it. They were akin to a smaller version of the terrorclaws. The blades seemed like a kind of divine weapon as dark golden halos revolved around them.

    Elder Xuan was shocked and envious, "You guys are really lucky! It's quite natural for a soul bone to emerge from a rare soul beast like the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear, but I never expected that it would leave behind its most valuable right palm soul bone!"

    The three of them were already in the second grade,thus they'd already learned some stuff about soul masters and soul beasts. However, it wasn't possible for them to know everything, thus Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong looked to Elder Xuan with curiosity.

    Elder Xuan showed them the right palm bone and said, "The strongest attack at a Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear's disposal comes from its terrorclaws. This bear was a juvenile, this it couldn't unleash the full potential of their terrorclaws. However, I once came across a hundred thousand year Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear in my youth. I remember that, when it swiped its claws, hundred meter long blades would fly out. Back then, I believed that even giant dragons would be torn to shreds in front of such an attack. In the Sea God's Pavilion there's a memoir of an elder's research on Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bears. It has highly detailed information about Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bears."

    "Their terrorclaws may seem the same, but their right claw is in fact stronger.

    "In fact, it's far more powerful. The memoir also notes the four Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear soul bones that have appeared in the past. The elder discovered that only the arm bones have offensive capabilities like the terrorclaws, while the rest-while still good-only bolstered one's defensive capabilities. But neither the left nor right arm bones' terrorclaw soul skills were even able to come close to matching the real Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear. Successfully hunting a ten thousand year Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear is very rare, as at that point even a Titled Douluo will find it difficult to win. As such, the terrorclaw soul skills in the arm soul bones have always had their limits, even though they're very powerful."

    "Coincidentally that same elder met with a soul master who possessed a Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear soul bone, who became a renowned soul master after only a few years. This elder from our academy was also pretty famous, and was even a Transcendent Douluo. He traded information with that soul master and promised to keep their secret, which in turn allowed him the chance to learn more about the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear's soul bones.

    "The rarest soul bone from a Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear is the palm bone as it would turn out, which also has the strongest soul skill. More importantly, the soul skill develops alongside the soul bone just like an actual Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear. That soul master had obtained a left palm bone and was famed for his dark left hand-he even had the title of Darkleft Douluo. This time you managed to obtain a right palm bone! Which is the highest rank soul bone you can get from a Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear. Palm bones are different from arm bones, they're almost considered external soul bones. It's best to find a suitable arm soul bone to go along with it so that the fusion isn't problematic. The only pity is that this Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear only had two thousand years of cultivation, thus this right palm bone needs time to develop."

    Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong realized just how extraordinary this palm bone was after hearing Elder Xuan's description. It was especially eye-opening for them, as they recalled how this Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear had clawed at Elder Xuan earlier. Their faces grew heated at the same time.

    Wang Dong took the lead and asked when he saw Elder Xuan looking at them seriously, "Elder Xuan, I already have both left and right arm bones. Judging from what you said, one should fuse with this palm bone before a right arm bone. As such it's wasted on me; I'll give up on it."

    Huo Yuhao said, "Elder Xuan, you know that I'm the leader amongst the three of us. Xiao Xiao is the only girl, and she isn't strong offensively. But if she gets this palm bone, she'll be good at both attacking and defending. Furthermore, she's fusing with the soul ring of the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear as we speak. As they say, ladies first. I'll leave it to her. I believe that our luck will hold out in the future."

    Elder Xuan felt comforted seeing how generous they were. "Kids, I'll have you know that the value of this right palm bone isn't inferior to a hundred thousand year soul bone! Once it fully develops, it'll be even more valuable than an ordinary hundred thousand year soul bone."

    Huo Yuhao smiled and said, "Wang Dong can't fuse with it, and I can't be too greedy, since I already have the Ice Jade Scorpion Left Arm Bone! Moreover, it really suits Xiao Xiao. We're all Shrek's Seven Monsters, so we'll share what's needed with those of us that need it. We can maximize our potential better this way, right?"

    Elder Xuan looked at him sincerely and nodded slightly. He said, "Then I shall thank you on Xiao Xiao's behalf." He was selfish at heart and really wanted to give this soul bone to Xiao Xiao-she was his personal disciple after all, and he was truly fond of her. He could tell that, in terms of talent, Xiao Xiao lagged behind Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong. But if she could fuse with this soul bone, then she could close the gap between them.

    But he couldn't make that decision of his. As an elder and a teacher of the academy, he knew that Huo Yuhao had been the first to attack the thousand year Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear. However, Huo Yuhao hadn't taken the soul ring. If Elder Xuan bluntly gave the soul bone to Xiao Xiao as well, then that would be pushing it. It was beyond his expectations that Xiao Xiao would obtain this soul ring without his interference.

    But it was different if Huo Yuhao offered to give up the palm bone. Not only was such a decision much to Elder Xuan's delight, but it also made him respect Huo Yuhao more. It wasn't strange that Elder Mu regarded him so highly; he was very compassionate. Huo Yuhao was bound to become the center of the Shrek's Seven Devils in the future if he developed properly.

    Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong could relax with Elder Xuan around, thus they sat close to Xiao Xiao and began cultivating and restoring their soul power.

    Their confidence soared after finding a suitable soul ring for Xiao Xiao on their first day.

    Their soul power was fully restored after a while, and the sky had turned dark. Huo Yuhao felt like chuckling as he looked at Elder Xuan.

    Elder Xuan had used a thick tree branch to form a fire pit as they were cultivating. He'd then skinned a chunk of Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear meat and washed it clean before skewering it on a tree branch. He'd also prepared firewood and even displayed more than 10 condiments to one side. When he saw Elder Xuan looking at him hopefully, Huo Yuhao immediately understood what he wanted.

    "Hehe, little Yuhao! This bear's meat is extremely delicious, especially the palm meat. It's considered one of the top 10 delicacies in the world. I leave the palm meat to you; freeze it for now, and we can find some top quality honey to cook it with when we return.

    "It's also very nourishing, so we can let Elder Mu try it too. We'll feast on the rest of the meat. The three of you are still growing, so you can have some more meat."

    Wang Dong's eyes also brightened. He swallowed his saliva as he looked at Huo Yuhao. He hadn't tasted the delicacies that Huo Yuhao could make in a long while..

    "Elder Xuan, I recall our teachers mentioning that we can't start a fire in a place like this, since soul beasts live here." Huo Yuhao joked.

    Elder Xuan chuckled. "That's only the case for you kids. With me here, nothing will happen unless we set the whole forest on fire, so hurry up.."

    Huo Yuhao laughed and walked in front of a chunk of Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear meat to check its quality.

    Meat of different qualities had to be grilled using different methods. Huo Yuhao had a natural appreciation for cooking, and a sizeable talent at it..

    There were some people who made ordinary tasting food even after years of cooking experience, while others had natural talent. Like Huo Yuhao who could use his Spiritual Detection to enhance the quality of cooking this chunk of meat to make it taste better.

    The Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear's meat was entirely dark red and very springy. There were streaks of fat spread proportionally on the surface of it in a webbed pattern, usually meaning that the meat was very fresh.

    Huo Yuhao retrieved his White Tiger Dagger and cut this chunk of meat, to discover that this chunk of meat came from the bear's back.

    Elder Xuan had no opinions on how to grill the meat. He was fine with it as long as it tasted nice.

    Huo Yuhao deftly sliced the chunk of meat into small pieces, while Wang Dong was given the task of skewering the meat onto thin tree branches. They teamed up very well when cooking as well it seemed...

    After finishing, Huo Yuhao started a bonfire and started to grill the meat.

    He grabbed a slice and draped it over the bonfire on a tree branch unadorned, then began to turn the branch repeatedly until the meat started to smoke and let out a golden yellow oil. The aroma of cooked meat spread through the air as the meat's color changed quickly and it shrank just as fast.

    Huo Yuhao pulled the meat off the bonfire and sprinkled salt evenly across the surface, then shook the branch a little to help the meat cool. Afterwards, he tasted his new recipe.

    Elder Xuan salivated at the sight from the side. He no longer looked like a top class powerhouse, but rather quite pitiful. Of course, there was no question as to why he looked this way: the Taotie Douluo could never resist the allure of good food.

    Juice flooded into Huo Yuhao's mouth as he chewed. He quickly polished off the strip of meat in three large bites. Contrary to what one would think because of its defensive capabilities, the Darkgold Terrorclaw Bear's meat was extremely tender, and seemed to simply melt in one's mouth when chewed. Huo Yuhao had doubted his words at first, but just like Elder Xuan had said, the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear's palm meat was definitely one of the top ten delicacies in the world. He smiled brightly as he swallowed the delicacy.

    Huo Yuhao could still taste the extraordinary flavor of the meat when the unforgettable delicacy entered his stomach alongside a deluge of juiciness. It was as if a hot gust of air had filled his stomach, which caused all the tension and fatigue from the last day to disappear.

    "It was delicious." Huo Yuhao complimented.

    "Rascal, you don't know how to respect your elders," Elder Xuan snapped, "you should've given me some first!"

    Huo Yuhao chortled and replied, "Elder Xuan, please be patient. I was experimenting with the fire when I cooked this bear meat. I couldn't bear to waste such an ingredient by using inadequate cooking methods. The next slice will be yours elder, don't fret. Besides, the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear's meat is extremely fresh and tender, so it won't take long to cook. However, it's a pity that we don't have any eggs. I could make meal this even more delicious if we did."

    Elder Xuan's eyes snapped open and he said, "What's so difficult about that? Do you want raw eggs or cooked?"

    Huo Yuhao was stunned and replied, "Raw. Don't tell me..."

    Before he even finished speaking, light radiance flashed in Elder Xuan's hands, and several multi-colored chicken eggs appeared.

    "These are Five-Colored Golden Pheasant eggs. Will they suffice?" Elder Xuan said smugly.

    Huo Yuhao's eyes widened and he said, "You brought chicken eggs along?"

    Elder Xuan said mysteriously, "Let me tell all of you a secret. There's one thing that I can't do without-food. Not only eggs, I also have almost every kind of food on me! I need at least ten cubic meters of food on me when I go out, else I'll get uneasy. I even asked Qian Duoduo to help me create a storage-type soul tool exclusively for food, so that it would stay fresh!"

    Wang Dong laughed, "No wonder you're called the Taotie Douluo, Elder Xuan!"

    Elder Xuan passed all the eggs to Huo Yuhao and said, "Hurry up."

    Huo Yuhao asked, "Did you bring any bowls with you? It'd be for the best if you have a clean brush too."

    The things that he'd requested appeared after a second.

    Elder Xuan squatted beside the fire like a small kid. He watched Huo Yuhao curiously as he swallowed his saliva.

    Huo Yuhao didn't dare to make him wait, and started to grill the meat again.

    He was much more confident in grilling the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear meat now that he had experience. Such delicacies didn't require too much cooking or ingredients. Their original taste was already good enough.

    That's why the bear meat was only flipped three times before Huo Yuhao retracted it from the fire and sprinkled salt on it. After that, he brushed the meat with the stirred eggs.

    "Elder Xuan, please give it a try and see if it's to your liking."

    "Just like this? It's my first time seeing eggs on meat."

    However, he'd already stuffed the meat into his mouth and swallowed it before he'd even finished speaking.

    "How is it?" Huo Yuhao asked.

    Elder Xuan stared at him stunned, but his eyes brightened. The bright, yellow radiance that he emitted from his eyes was just like the time when he fought Du Busi.

    "I regret it." Elder Xuan said.

    Huo Yuhao was puzzled as he asked, "Regret what? Is it not delicious? That can't be! This bear meat is tender and juicy, while its fat is proportionally separated such that it doesn't need to be cooked too long. The egg should even make it more tender and fresh. Its aroma will be let out when you chew into it, and the juices should explode in your mouth! It should be extremely delicious. I've never even used such awesome ingredients before."

    Elder Xuan, "When I said I regret it, I meant that I regret not snatching you as my disciple! If you were my disciple, I'd bring you across the continent and make you the best chef on the continent, haha." Wang Dong couldn't help but laugh at this and said, "Yuhao, give me some too! If Elder Xuan wants to make you a chef because of it then it must be really delicious!"

    They gorged themselves on the food. Huo Yuhao, while busy, was gratified. More than half of the meat entered Elder Xuan's stomach who, when he discovered that there wasn't enough meat left, simply cut off another serving from the bear.

    Elder Xuan had tried to grill this meat before. However, his talent was a far cry from the likes of Huo Yuhao's, and his meat tasted far inferior to the delicacy before him.

    When the three of them were almost full, Xiao Xiao finally awakened from absorbing her third soul ring.

    Her six senses were restored. But it wasn't her sense of sight that stirred first; it was her sense of smell.

    "Wow, it smells good! What is it?" Xiao Xiao opened her eyes to see the bonfire in front of her.

    "Xiao Xiao, how did your martial soul fusion with the soul ring go?" Huo Yuhao asked concernedly.

    Xiao Xiao didn't bother to answer as she snatched the freshest Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear meat that he'd just finished grilling, which she immediately devoured with large bites.

    "Wow, it's delicious. It's really delicious. I want to woo you now. Whoever marries you in the future will be really lucky. Oh no, I can't speak anymore. I just bit my tongue..."

    Xiao Xiao seemed to have become as gluttonous as Elder Xuan after accepting him as her teacher. She was overjoyed to be able to eat so much.

    "I'm full, great food." Xiao Xiao said satisfactorily. She used her sleeves to wipe the oil from her lips, and appeared very pleased.

    Elder Xuan was already full, but he didn't idle around. While Xiao Xiao was eating, he dissected the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear into 8 pieces and passed them to Huo Yuhao for him to freeze so that they could be brought back to the academy.

    The Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear's meat was very nourishing. It was a delicacy even to Shrek Academy's core disciples. Of course, Elder Xuan wasn't generous enough to give it to them; he would keep these pieces of meat for himself. He only gave the palm meat to Huo Yuhao.

    At this point, Huo Yuhao was still unsure as to what the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear's palm meat represented.

    "Elder Xuan, are we leaving now, or are we going to wait for Xiao Xiao to absorb her soul bone here too?" Huo Yuhao asked Elder Xuan.

    "Let's do it here," Elder Xuan replied, "I'm full right now, and too lazy to move. Since I'm here, no soul beasts will dare to come close." This was indeed the case. Even though they'd started a fire and even grilled meat here, no soul beasts had come to interrupt them. Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong were unsure how Elder Xuan had pulled this off.

    Xiao Xiao heard Elder Xuan's explanation on the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear's external soul bone. When she found out she was going to absorb the soul bone, she turned to look at Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong.

    "Class Monitor, can I pledge myself to you in exchange for what you're giving up?" Xiao Xiao teared up.

    "No." Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong replied at the same time.

    "Oh?" Xiao Xiao looked at them suspiciously, "What's with you two's immediate reactions? Is there some sort of illicit affair between the two of you?"

    Huo Yuhao snapped, "How old are you? Why're you talking about pledging yourself to someone else? Do you know what that means?"

    Xiao Xiao laughed, "Class Monitor, stop it. When we compared our ages earlier, I was fifth, you were sith and Wang Dong was the youngest. You're younger than me, yet you still dare to lecture me? Why don't you tell me what it means then?"

    Huo Yuhao thought of Ma Xiaotao for some reason after she'd asked this. His face turned a little red and he replied, "I don't know either."

    Xiao Xiao laughed, "That's right. How dare you lecture me when you don't know what it means either! You know what I meant. Should you want to woo me, you better move fast! I'm very popular. I'll make it easy for you though."

    Psht-

    Elder Xuan spat out wine from his mouth and stared at Xiao Xiao. He said, "Stop spouting gibberish. Fuse with it quickly, I want to see how mystical this right palm bone is right away." Once he'd finished, he passed the soul bone to Xiao Xiao and signaled for her to begin.

    Xiao Xiao lowered her head to look at the soul bone when she received it. After that, she lifted her head up to look at Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong and seriously said, "Thank you." She emphasized these words strongly.

    Xiao Xiao held onto the right palm bone and sat down where she was, then began to stimulate her soul power in preparation to fuse with the soul bone.

    The right palm bone visibly melted under the effects of her soul power into a dark golden fluid. This dark golden fluid then slowly seeped into her right hand.

    Wang Dong said in a deep voice, "We forgot to ask Xiao Xiao to demonstrate her third soul skill to us just now. The soul skill from a Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear must be quite extraordinary. I've got a feeling that the Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron will be completely changed with this new thousand year soul skill."
