This was…

Huo Yuhao was delightfully surprised to discover the presence of this refreshing feeling. Wasn’t it the aura of the Morning Dew Dagger?

Sigh of the Frozen Goddess, Morning Dew Dagger. It was what he had inherited from the God of Emotions Nian Rongbing. After being subjected to external stimulation, the dagger naturally passed its aura to him.

Don’t tell me that the aura of the golden trident also belongs to a god? Otherwise, why does it need to be neutralized by the aura of another god?

While he could no longer sense the aura of the golden trident, Huo Yuhao was still very confused.

He started to pour out more spiritual power. The golden trident looked like a real entity right now. Not only was it shining brightly with golden light, but there was even a material feeling to it.

“Yuhao, summon your spiritual soul core fully. After that, force your spiritual soul core into Wutong’s spiritual sea through the spiritual connection that you’ve built with her, that golden trident.”

Huo Yuhao hesitated a little. He didn’t follow Tai Tan’s instructions immediately.

It wasn’t easy for him to shift his soul core. A soul core was a soul master’s foundation. Furthermore, stability was key. Once there were problems with one’s soul core, an explosion could happen. Given Huo Yuhao’s abilities, the entire castle might be blown to pieces if his soul core exploded!

This wasn’t even what Huo Yuhao was most worried about. This was because he believed in his control. More importantly, could Tang Wutong withstand it? Could her spiritual sea withstand his soul core? Could his soul core be shifted over through their current spiritual connection?

“Don’t worry. I’m about to use our secret method. Just do what I say. Do you really think I’m going to lie to you?” Tai Tan seemed to have read Huo Yuhao’s thoughts, and immediately responded.

Huo Yuhao had no choice right now. He could only believe Tai Tan. He gritted his teeth and started to control his spiritual soul core.

Huo Yuhao’s spiritual soul core was a golden whirlpool. At the depths of this whirlpool, there was a subtle golden crystal entity. Right now, his spiritual soul core started to gently shift under his intentional control.

His spiritual soul core was in his Eye of Destiny. Or rather, it was connected to his Eye of Destiny. When he touched his spiritual soul core, it was immediately projected outwards from his Eye of Destiny.

His bright golden spiritual soul core was revolving tremendously in his Eye of Destiny, but it was very stable. Furthermore, it was slowly becoming clearer and clearer.

The rose-gold sunray patterns disappeared, to be replaced by golden radial patterns. Huo Yuhao’s forehead also shone with golden light that was as intense as the golden light that came from Tang Wutong’s golden trident. The entire room was engulfed with immense spiritual undulations. Even the entire castle was covered by a layer of golden light from Huo Yuhao’s spiritual soul core.

There was a sea of clouds outside the castle. The clouds that were closest to the castle were illuminated brightly. As golden light spread, the mountain peak that the Clear Sky Castle was on seemed to become an immortal paradise.

Tai Tan was already seated cross-legged behind Tang Wutong by now. He was sensing the immense spiritual aura that Huo Yuhao’s spiritual soul core released. There was a delighted look on his face.

He started to recite incantations. He lifted his hands at the same time and pressed them against Tang Wutong’s shoulders.

Strange lights formed. As Tang Wutong was blocking him, Huo Yuhao couldn’t see Tai Tan slowly shrinking behind Tang Wutong. A gentle light projection also appeared in front of Tai Tan. There seemed to be a man with long blue hair seated cross-legged there.

He lifted his hand and pressed one finger against the back of Tang Wutong’s head.

Next Chapter Chapter 85: God’s Favorite Children

The scene of Luciano kneeling down and begging for his life shocked the residents of Chambord.

The crowd on both sides of the street felt like they were having a bizarre dream. What a horrifying noun, and what a supreme monster the Holy Church was. Even the life of the Holy Church’s guard dog was more precious than a noble from a kingdom. Now however, the arrogant Holy Knight Mr. Luciano was shivering, kneeling and begging King Alexander for forgiveness…… what was going on?

While the residents were confused, something crazier occurred –

The evil and vicious [Two Legged Rattlesnake] Priest Zola panicked as he crouched down and crawled towards Fei. With a humble attitude the people of Chambord had never seen before, he kissed Fei’s boots passionately and said in a shaky voice, “Honorable Master, humble Zola begs for your generous forgiveness…… We didn’t know of your honorable identity in advance. We are truly guilty. Please forgive us two lowly wretches!”

Hundreds of cavaliers’ retinues and novice priests were shocked. They looked at each other in unison as their bosses suddenly lost all their pride and prestige and kneeled down begging for forgiveness. After a few seconds of hesitation, they all copied Zola and Luciano’s action and knelt down as well; they didn’t even dare to breathe too heavily.

Although these people were at the bottom of the Holy Church’s hierarchy and the majority of them didn’t know what the golden [Battle Ring] that appeared on the young king meant, they had followed and served Zola and Luciano for a while. They all had high EQs and were good at observing situations. From their two bosses’ expressions, they at the very least knew that they had kicked on an iron plate and messed with someone that they shouldn’t have messed with.

“Please forgive us, master!” Hundreds of people knelt down and begged.

“Master? Ha, tell me, who’s master am I?”

Fei said to the Holy Church crowd with a faint smile on his face.

“Master…….you……Oh, right right right, you aren’t……Ah, no, I mean……I……I……I……”

Despite Zola having the brains to come up with thousands of conspiracies, at this key point, he was stuttering and couldn’t put a sentence together.

He had only heard of the Holy Knights who had a golden [Battle Ring] in legends and tales, let alone a Holy knight that had a double golden [Battle Rings]. He had the chance to go to a Church’s party at St. Petersburg for senior priests and overheard Sergievsky, the Bishop for Zenit Empire mention stories about these [God’s Favorite Children] who had golden [Battle Rings] – These [God’s Favorite Children] were all secret characters that most people didn’t know about. Before they were formally appointed to powerful positions at the Holy Church, they would be appointed by the Pope to execute some secret missions or go on unknown journeys to gain more experience. Their identities were all hidden, and their statuses were highly respected by everyone at the Holy Church. They had enormous opportunities to become candidates for the position of Pope; the most incompetent ones would become Bishops for the huge empires and take control of the church in a region. The future and potential of Zola who was only a representative for the church in a small level 6 affiliated kingdom that belonged to a level 1 empire couldn’t even be compared with these people, so how could Zola not be scared?

Zola felt like he was in a freezer; he could feel the chill in his bones. He didn’t expect to meet someone on that level and leave a bad first impression. He wanted to flatter Fei a little bit to make up for what he had done, but once he thought that Fei might be executing some kind of secret mission under the Pope’s instruction, he didn’t dare to call out Fei’s “True Identity”…… “Damn it! Should I address Alexander by ‘master’ or pretend that I don’t know him?”

Zola had lost his cool.

Fei on the other hand had roughly guessed what was happening after seeing all the church people kneeling down and shivering. The reason he switched from his Level 20 Barbarian Mode to the Level 12 Paladin Mode was because he wanted to cheat a little with the Paladin’s Aura, but he didn’t expect it to have such a significant effect.

“You, stand up and apologize to the woman you injured.”

Fei was afraid that saying anymore might raise suspicion. He pretended to be mysterious and change the conversation back to the previous topic. He pointed at the Knight Luciano and said coldly.

“Yes, yes, yes……”

Luciano felt relieved after he heard that.

He and Zola passionately crawled and rushed to the woman who was waking up as if she was their mother. Luciano helped the woman sit up and Zola, who wanted to cleanse the impression Fei had of him used everything he had and was barely able to cast a high level spell that required a ton of mental effort [Heal]. A milky white light bloomed in his hand and shrouded the whip wounds on the woman’s back. After the miraculous effect appeared, the horrifying wounds soon disappeared under the illumination of the white light.

Fei’s pupil slightly contracted after seeing that.

Holy Church’s holy [Healing] spell had similar effects compared to [Healing Potions]from the Diablo World, but it had its own mystical and unique sides. It looked like the Holy Church had an unfathomable foundation and background which allowed it to be the monster and dominate the Azeroth Continent.

“You were brave enough to try to harm Angela. You deserve to be killed thousands of times!” Fei said in a bloody tone as he stared at Zola coldly.

“Forgive me, your majesty, please forgive me. I was being really dumb, I won’t do it ever again……” After hearing Fei bringing that up, Zola kneeled in front of Fei’s feet again as he trembled. He started to snivel and begged, “Your majesty, I know my mistake. From now on, Zola will always fulfill your orders and listen to whatever you say!”

This poisonous snake was scared to death.

Fei backed off a few steps in disgust. He knew that at this point, neither his own personal power or Chambord’s strength could challenge the huge Holy Church; the difference in strength between the two was gigantic, like comparing a speck of dust to the sun. Therefore, he couldn’t be too impulsive. He had handled most of the problems, so he decided to take care of the remaining accounts with the two bums in the future. He waved his hand and said, “Nevermind, I won’t hold you guys accountable anymore on the fact that this was your first time. However, be careful how you behave in Chambord. If you dare offend or annoy me one more time, don’t say that I’m ruthless.”


Zola was so relieved that he almost cried.

He was glad that this “Master” was magnanimous enough to forgive them. Just with Fei’s status alone in the Holy Church, even if he ended up killing both of them, Bishop Sergievsky would say that they were guilty. As long as he could extinguish “this master’s” anger, Zola was confident with his numerous methods to make “this powerful man” happy. “As long as I can tie myself together with this promising man……tut – tut.” Zola was secretly laughing every time he thought of it. He definitely believed that this was a rare and golden opportunity that he should take advantage of it.

“Alright, I don’t want to see you guys anymore. Send someone to take the injured people home and compensate them…… Get away from me, now!” Fei waved his hand as if he was expelling some flies; his impatience was obvious.

“Alright, ok, ok……”

Zola and Luciano nodded obediently and turned around to order the retinues and novice priests, “You guys, quickly help these injured children of God get home…… Oh, you guys are too rough, compensate every household with 10 gold coins…… Oh, no, compensate them with 20 gold coins!”

After seeing that some injured people were slightly immobilized, Zola squinted his eyes and immediately ordered, “Use my carriage…… Use my carriage to take them back, don’t let them suffer any more pain.”

The novice priests were shocked and stared at Zola in surprise. They thought that they had heard it wrong. Zola spent a lot of resources on picking up this carriage and he was reluctant to use it regularly. Was he going to use this magic carriage to take these dirty low class people home?

“What are you guys still standing here for? Go and do it, idiots!”

Zola shouted at the novice priests, and then turned around and asked, “Your majesty, what do you think? Are you satisfied?”

20 gold coins was the average annual income for a household in Chambord. Most of the injured residents were only lightly wounded by the retinues and novice priests. The only severely injured one was the woman who was whipped, but she was now fully recovered and also compensated 100 gold coins. Zola and Luciano miscalculated everything and were now disgraced, losing money.

Fei’s inner rage dissipated a little at this point. He nodded and waved, “Alright, now get out of my sight!”

His attitude was extremely impatient.

Zola and Luciano didn’t get mad at all. Instead, they felt like that was the proper manner that a [God’s Favorite Child] should have. They nodded submissively, apologized again and left with the retinues and novice priests.

After seeing the vicious church personnel leave embarrassingly, Chambord’s residents on both sides of the street felt like they had just woken up from a dream. The just and kind King Alexander protected them and surprised everyone again. Applause and cheers were as loud as thunder……

The beautiful Angela and Emma stood in the excited crowd. They stared at Fei with fascination and passion.

Lampard turned around and left quietly the loud cheers.

Fei on the other hand stared at the carriage fleet which was slowly moving away. When they were passing by Fei, he saw a handsome blonde young man who looked slightly sick through the window at the back of the magic carriage. The pair of crystal blue, ocean-like eyes gave Fei an indescribable strange feeling.

“Who is he?”

For some reason, Fei was suddenly full of curiosity towards that young man. Suddenly, the light from the golden trident on Tang Wutong’s forehead retracted. After this, the light that had scattered earlier immediately gathered together before shooting towards Huo Yuhao’s Eye of Destiny.

Golden light shone as the Eye of Destiny was hit. Huo Yuhao only felt his entire body shaking tremendously. He actually felt a strong suction force that was sucking his spiritual core out.

The stable circulation of his spiritual soul core was disrupted, and its revolution became violently quick. This caused Huo Yuhao’s entire head to turn golden.

Outside the castle, all the clouds within a fifty kilometer radius shone with the same glow.

Huo Yuhao tried to focus his gaze, but all he saw was that the golden light came from Tang Wutong’s golden trident. This suction force was like a bridge between him and Tang Wutong.

There wasn’t any reluctance on his part. Huo Yuhao did his best to use his spiritual power to push his spiritual core outward.

It was important to know that his was a Yin-Yang Complement soul core. Once it completely left his body, his Ultimate Ice soul core might actually blow apart.

Huo Yuhao had already thought this over properly. He believed that Tai Tan also didn’t know the characteristics of his Yin-Yang Complement soul cores. This was why he judged the outcome in that manner. In fact, from the current situation, his Ultimate Ice soul core might immediately blow apart the moment his spiritual soul core left his body. When that happened, his entire body might actually explode.

When he thought of this potential outcome, Huo Yuhao also thought of a way to counteract it. Giving his spiritual soul core to Tang Wutong could save her. That was enough.

He was also very self-confident. He was confident that he could control his Ultimate Ice soul core for at least a short period of time. If he was given time to recite incantations, that would be enough.

If that happened, he would open his spectral door and enter his demiplane before shutting the door. He would then blow apart in his own demiplane.

He might destroy the entire demiplane if he blew apart in there. Perhaps he might only destroy a part of it. He was fine with it as long as he didn’t harm anyone.

This was what he thought. It was very simple and direct. This was why he decisively chose to listen to Tai Tan’s suggestion. When he came to save Tang Wutong, he had already expected death.

If only one of the two of them could survive, he naturally wished that it was Tang Wutong.

Dim lights flashed in the air. The golden light that was shining from Huo Yuhao’s body became stronger and stronger. As his spiritual soul core shifted out, the chain between his two soul cores was also pulled longer and longer. The circulation speed of his Ultimate Ice soul core also got faster and faster. It seemed like it was going to turn violent soon.

Huo Yuhao perfectly demonstrated his control right now. He suppressed both his soul cores and contained their violent tendencies.

His Eye of Destiny had turned into a golden whirlpool by now. Even the pupil was gone. Against the golden trident, the golden light that it let out also became more and more intense.

“Project!” A gentle voice sounded. Huo Yuhao could only tell that this voice didn’t belong to Tai Tan. It didn’t seem to belong to Niu Tian either.

After this, Huo Yuhao felt a gentle beam of light striking his body. This beam of light felt warm, but there was an indescribable pressure that came with it. The pressure he was under earlier re-surfaced. It was even stronger now than it was before.

What was this?

Huo Yuhao was astonished. However, before he could even react, he felt his soul and spiritual power pouring out of his body. Following this, his spiritual soul core shook a little. Huo Yuhao only felt a strong turning force, and a sense of weakness immediately swept over his spiritual sea.

A golden whirlpool appeared thirty centimeters in front of him. Wasn’t that his spiritual soul core?

However, Huo Yuhao was stunned that his spiritual soul core didn’t disappear. It was still in his Eye of Destiny. It was just that its spiritual aura was weaker than what it was previously. It was at most only at one-tenth of what it was earlier.

One-tenth of an Ultimate Douluo’s spiritual power was still close to the standard of a Rank 90 Titled Douluo. However, the sense of weakness was still very overwhelming, as Huo Yuhao lost ninety percent of his spiritual power so abruptly.

It was a torturous feeling. At least this was what Huo Yuhao was feeling right now. His Ultimate Ice soul core also became stronger. The center of the chain connecting both soul cores was where both soul cores collided with each other, generating whirlpool-like soul power. However, it was rapidly shifting upward, and only stabilized after entering Huo Yuhao’s spiritual sea.

His two soul cores became a little unbalanced now. The whirlpool-like soul power that he generated contained the chill of Ultimate Ice, while his spiritual aura had evidently weakened.

What was going on? Why was a part of his soul core able to be separated? Ninety-ten separation?

Projection? Earlier, that voice mentioned something about projection. What’s that? Is this the secret method of the Clear Sky Sect? It’s magical!

Although Huo Yuhao was weak, he could still clearly see that the golden whirlpool was drifting in the air towards Tang Wutong, along the trajectory of the golden light released by the golden trident.

It wasn’t moving at an incredible speed, but it was very stable. It seemed to have completely detached itself from Huo Yuhao’s control. He couldn’t even sense that part of his spiritual power. The circulation speed of his spiritual soul core also fell considerably. Just like Tai Tan had mentioned, his spiritual soul core had become extremely weak right now.

“Focus. When Wutong absorbs your spiritual soul core, she’ll interact with the soul power that you poured into her body. At the same time, she’ll stimulate the resonance of your spiritual soul core. You must be careful. If you can’t control your soul and spiritual power, you’ll become an idiot. Do you understand?” Tai Tan’s voice sounded once again. Yes, it was Tai Tan’s voice this time. Huo Yuhao was certain.

At this point, Huo Yuhao naturally couldn’t say anything. He quickly focused, and did his best to tolerate the intense weakness. He also tried his best to sense the changes to the soul and spiritual power in his body.
