Chapter 66: Leaving

Note: I posted the correct chapter 64. Remember to check it out.

.....

Flender looked at the sparsely populated academy, feeling inexplicably desolate.

Tang Hao's appearance also pushed Xiao Wu's fear to its peak. Her face turned even paler than that of the Golden Iron Triangle, who had exhausted their spirit power, devoid of any trace of color.

What should she do?

Xiao Wu understood that her transformed appearance could, at most, deceive Spirit Masters below the Titled Douluo level. Even the weakest Titled Douluo could see through her true form at a glance.

Tang San's father must be hiding nearby to protect him. Her identity was likely already exposed, and even... even... she herself was nurtured for her hundred-thousand-year spirit rings and spirit bones.

Xiao Wu's mind was filled with many thoughts. Most of all, she wondered whether Tang San knew her true identity. This point was crucial to her.

At this moment, Tang San had no time to spare for Xiao Wu's situation.

Tang Hao's arrival made him understand what Gu Yi meant earlier. But who could have imagined that a middle-aged man who spent his days drinking and forging in the Holy Spirit Village would be the top-ranked Titled Douluo on the Douluo Continent.

It completely overturned his previous image.

Tang Hao also had no intention of explaining here; he directly grabbed his son and, after casting a glance at Xiao Wu, disappeared from everyone's sight.

Flender couldn't care less about restoring his spirit power; he checked on Yu Xiaogang's condition.

Zhao Wuji and the others looked at each other, all focusing their gaze on the unconscious culprit, Yu Xiaogang. If he hadn't secretly learned the techniques, committing a major taboo in the spirit master world, then Flender wouldn't have had a falling-out with Gu Yi.

"What a mess!"

Such an earth-shattering change had happened within a day. Gu Yi was someone they had watched grow up, and their relationship with him was extremely good.

"Let's all disperse."

Flender weakly shouted at the crowd.

.....

Gu Yi and the five who followed him stood in an empty space.

"Brother Yi, where are you going? I'll follow you." Oscar spoke up.

The others looked at Gu Yi the same way. Of course, only Oscar and Ma Hongjun were truly determined to follow Gu Yi. Even Zhu Zhuqing had her own ulterior motives; she didn't have the qualification to be willful now.

"Where to?" Gu Yi fell into thought. Although leaving suddenly was a spontaneous decision, he had a destination in mind.

"Naturally, to establish a new academy and participate in the continent-wide Advanced Spirit Master Tournament in over a year, and win the championship. To fulfill my promise."

Gu Yi's words shocked everyone. If Gu Yi only wanted to establish an academy, there wouldn't be any problem, but wanting to win the championship meant he would have to personally compete, as they were not strong enough to take the championship away from the Martial Spirit Hall.

"Do you want to come?" Gu Yi extended an invitation to them; after all, their talents were quite remarkable.

Especially Oscar, whose innate full spirit power in the food system was unparalleled in this world, truly a genius of the highest order. He was also the true genius with innate full spirit power in Shrek Academy. After all, Tang San's awakening of innate full spirit power was most likely due to his cultivation of the Mysterious Heaven Skill. Otherwise, it was very likely that his own talent was not strong.

"Of course, as long as it's your academy, I'll join." Oscar was the first to speak up. Then came Ma Hongjun and the others.

Among them, Ning Rongrong was the most excited; after all, she was the only one among them who hadn't experienced life's pressures except for that one episode. She was born and raised in a world of affection and had no worries. Establishing an academy, such a fun thing, naturally she had to take part in it.

Establishing an academy was not just talk for Gu Yi. This wasn't about forming a team; it would require more than just a few people.

It's time to go to Heaven Dou City.

Gu Yi understood that he couldn't fulfill his aspirations in Soutou City. There were no people here who could help him.

Qian Renxue, I've come to see you!

.....

On the other side, Tang Hao also told Tang San some things.

Like Xiao Wu being a hundred-thousand-year spirit beast. Like his mother also being a hundred-thousand-year spirit beast.

Tang San simply stated, "Whether Xiao Wu is human or beast, all I know is that she is my sister."

Looking at his young son, Tang Hao felt like he was looking at himself from the past. And the idea of Xiao Wu turning into spirit ring faded from his mind.

Even if his wife was a hundred-thousand-year spirit beast, it didn't mean he would spare a hundred-thousand-year spirit beast in human form. Tang Hao was very clear about this.

It seemed that his son also had deep feelings for her.

Returning alone to the academy, even if Tang San knew Xiao Wu's true identity, he couldn't tell at all. Between the two, everything seemed unchanged yet everything had changed.

.....

After spending a few days, Gu Yi and his group finally arrived at Heaven Dou City. It was truly worthy of being the imperial city of the Heaven Dou Empire; it truly was exceptionally prosperous.

Upon arrival, Gu Yi instructed them to rest at the inn while he went out alone.

Heaven Dou Royal Academy.

"My name is Gu Yi, please inform Ye Lingling that I'm here to see her."

Seeing Gu Yi's refined appearance, one of the guards instinctively went to report. In their minds, only nobles had such refinement. Not only was he not aggressive, but he also chatted amiably with Gu Yi.

The disciples assigned to guard here were obviously not from prominent families or of high status; they were all minor nobles with unremarkable talents. Otherwise, they wouldn't have fallen to the position of gatekeepers.

Soon, a graceful figure walked out of the academy.

Just like when they first met.

Clad in black, with a black veil and long blue hair cascading down her back. However, unlike a few years ago, Ye Lingling's demeanor was even more refined now, and her figure was more pronounced, evolving into a mature woman. Especially with the black veil on her face, it added a sense of mystery and allure.

In short, Ye Lingling now could make men drool.

"What do you want with me?" Ye Lingling looked at the increasingly mature Gu Yi, her tone unyielding. After all, no matter who it was, if their close friend was abducted, they wouldn't have a good expression. Being able to come out to see Gu Yi was already a sign of her composure.

"I want to find Dugu Yan." Gu Yi truly didn't know where Dugu Yan was now. Heaven Dou City was so vast; it wasn't easy to find someone. The quickest way was to ask Ye Lingling, Dugu Yan's best friend.

"I don't know!" Ye Lingling's voice turned cold, and she turned to leave.

As for the gatekeeper from earlier, he had long since left. Ye Lingling wasn't a minor noble; although there could only be a single user of the Nine Heart Begonia in the entire spirit master world in a single generation, it was as prestigious as the Seven Treasure Glazed Tile Pagoda.

The Nine Heart Begonia was the most powerful healing-type martial spirit in the world, without exception.

If it weren't for the strict conditions of the inheritance of the Nine Heart Begonia, and its rarity, it would have been the number one auxiliary martial spirit in the world, surpassing the Seven Treasure Glazed Tile Pagoda.

Gu Yi didn't expect Ye Lingling to have such a poor impression of him, nor did he want to pester her, so he just bid her farewell and walked away.

It seemed he could only go to the Ice and Fire Yin Yang Well first.

However, Ye Lingling hesitated at the last moment; and her chilly voice reached Gu Yi's ears.

"Dugu Yan should be at the auction house now. There's a poisonous weed being auctioned today."

However, her tone changed slightly when she mentioned the poisonous weed.

Gu Yi smiled, turned around, and shouted to Ye Lingling who was already walking back to the academy, "Thank you."
