“Hmm,” answered Shi Mengshan. She appeared to be giving Tang Wulin the cold shoulder as well. A Ruheng then took her by the hand as he brought her to Shrek Academy’s side.
It was only at this point that the War Gods reacted to the situation.
Although the numerous War Gods were all extremely well-mannered, they could not help wanting to curse at the opposing side at this moment.
‘What is happening?! It’s fine that they’ve won, but now they’re even taking away our people. This is nonsense.’
“Deputy Hall Master, look…” The Vast Sun Douluo could not keep himself from giving the Skycrosser Douluo a look of silent appeal.
Guan Yue had a gloomy expression as well. ‘What’s going on here?! The boy from the other side is strange, but Shi Mengshan is also odd enough as well. How can she just agree like this?’
He used a total of three sentences to end up with a Title Douluo as his wife. This was absolutely the shortest marriage proposal in history. A Ruheng was the only one who could do something like this.
On Shrek Academy’s side, the Gale Saber Demon Sima Jincji gave a big thumbs up and said to A Ruheng, “Brother, I’ve got to hand it to you. I’ve got to hand it to you this time.”
A Ruheng had a proud expression on his face. He said to Shi Mengshan by his side, “Let me introduce him to you. He is my good brother Sima Jinchi. You can call him ‘Little Shi’.”
The corners of Sima Jinchi’s lips twitched. “What do you mean by ‘Little Shi’? A Ruheng, don’t you be taking a mile when I’ve just given you an inch! Do you really think that I’m really going to submit to you?”
“Come fight me if you haven’t.” A Ruheng glared at him.
Sima Jinchi was infuriated, yet there was nothing he could do. ‘Fight you? I’ll be d*mned! Who else can break your Leakproof Golden Body when you’ve successfully cultivated the Golden Body Arhat? Even my Dragon Slaying Saber can’t do that! Unless I’ve transformed is the Dragon Clan’s Power Saber transformed in Tang Wulin’s grasp. Perhaps, I would have a chance of breaking your Leakproof Golden Body that way.’
1In simpler words, it was almost impossible to hurt A Ruheng without using a super divine weapon.
Shi Mengshan took a glance at Sima Jinchi, but she did not speak. She stood at A Ruheng’s side and allowed him to hold her hand.
In reality, just as predicted by A Ruheng, the heavily built Shi Mengshan had never met a man she fancied before due to her powerful cultivation and her peculiar features. No man had ever proposed to her either.
It was true that ordinary men could not accept her due to her appearance.
As a result, Shi Mengshan was slightly stunned when A Ruheng took it upon himself to propose to her. It was genuinely her first time being given such an offer. Moreover, it was done under the watchful eyes of the crowd.
In reality, her ice-cold attitude on the surface was meant to conceal the panic in her heart. She was completely at a loss as to what to do.
A Ruheng, with his masculine aura, was standing in front of her, his naked torso looking so burly and muscular.
Many women found themselves dreaming of their soulmates, and Shi Mengshan was no exception. In her imagination, her partner should be an especially strong, manly man with an indomitable spirit. His abilities would certainly need to be greater than hers. This was also one of the reasons why she had not managed to find a man.
That being the case, A Ruheng could be described as a man that fulfilled all her requirements. As a result, Shi Mengshan’s guarded heart was finally opened when A Ruheng got down on one knee and told her that she would be the only woman in his life.
She was already forty-one years old and not young anymore. If she missed this opportunity, perhaps she would never find a suitable man suitable for the rest of her life.
Thus, she was acting very impulsively when she said, ‘Alright’. Nevertheless, she found that she had no regrets after actually saying that. A Ruheng’s big and strong hand was gently holding hers. It was the first time she had experienced such a feeling of warmth and a sense of security in her life.
At this exact moment, the Asiatic Apple Douluo’s heart was filled with unusual emotions. She felt like a young maiden.
The sensation was truly amazing for her as she had never experienced it before!
No matter how formidable her body, she was still a woman. She yearned to be cared for by someone, and she hoped that she could become a timid and affectionate woman to a man. A Ruheng had just given her all of that, so she had no regrets for her moment of recklessness. In fact, she was feeling quite pleased with her decision.
2Everything appeared to be so simple. However, if she had not accepted A Ruheng in that moment and rejected him in front of so many people, perhaps these two would have never come together.
A Ruheng was feeling even more pleased and also proud! The shortest marriage proposal in history was a success, as well as the Golden Body Arhat, and he returned with a beautiful wife in his arms. This was like reaching the peak of one’s life in an instant, right?
Tang Wulin was feeling happy for his senior disciple brother from the bottom of his heart as well. He would have to face the rage of the numerous War Gods from the opposite side!
The Skycrosser Douluo Guan Yue raised his hand and temporarily suppressed the emotions of the War Gods. He walked outside in slow strides.
“Tang Sect Master, your arrival today has resulted in many victories. I have yet to seek your opinion. What are you planning to do in our War God Hall?”
Tang Wulin smiled and said, “I’ve always heard that War God Hall is the gathering place for the mightiest powerhouses in the Federation. We are here to learn as well. Moreover, some of us are from the military. We heard that we can elevate our military ranks by participating in the challenge here. As a result, we wish to give that a try too.”
In reality, everybody else had been active members of the armed forces, other than A Ruheng and Ling Zichen.
Guan Yue spoke indifferently, “I’m aware of that naturally. However, if I’m not mistaken, Tang Sect Master, you’re from the Blood God Army and you’re already a major general. That’s the highest military rank we can promote you to.”
“Huh?” Tang Wulin was stunned for a moment. Cao Dezhi never told him that the War God Hall would only allow for the promotion until major general rank at most!
Whatever the case, he quickly came up with a reply. He said, “It’s alright then. I shall give it a try while my companions can be promoted to the rank of major general as well. Other than my senior disciple brother from earlier and another companion of ours, the rest of them are at the rank of lieutenant colonel.”
Years ago, they were all assigned to enlist in the army and had managed to enter different army corps. Some of them had attained at least the rank of lieutenant colonel before leaving the military.
For example, the Gale Saber Demon Sima Jinchi had been a senior colonel in the Southern Army Corps and was just one step away from being promoted to general.
Radiance shimmered in Guan Yue’s eyes. He smiled calmly and said, “Tang Sect Master, it’s not that interesting for us to fight in round after round like this. It’s going to take a longer period of time as well. Why don’t we do this? There are five of you remaining, which is just the right amount to match with the five from our side, including myself. Why don’t we have a group battle? If your team wins then I will consider that to be sufficient proof of your abilities. I’ll allow all of you to skip the next sixteen levels immediately. You’ll only need to go through the final two levels of tests to pass all eighteen. What do you think?”
A thought arose in Tang Wulin’s mind. He looked toward Guan Yue and saw the Skycrosser Douluo’s deep gaze.
Judging from the surface, Shrek Academy would lose their advantage if they agreed to this battle of five-on-five.
This was because being able to choose their individual opponents gave them an upper hand. It would turn into a group battle in a five-on-five match.
Even so, Guan Yue had clearly said that if they emerged victorious in the group battle, they would be allowed to leap over all the tests in the next sixteen levels of hell and go straight to the final two levels. It would undoubtedly reduce the time spent by a large extent. This would be highly beneficial for them because they needed to save time. Moreover, it would allow them to conserve more of their fighting strength while ensuring that they could head into the deepest levels as soon as possible.
However, the toughest issue that they were about to face was that it would not be easy for them to win the five-on-five battle. There was still the War God that ranked second on the opposing team and also the Limit Douluo, the Skycrosser Douluo Guan Yue. Could Shrek win the battle of five-on-five?
Currently, there were still five more people from Shrek Academy that had yet to partake in the challenge including the Dragon Emperor Douluo Tang Wulin, the Saber God Douluo Sima Jinchi, the Titan Angel Douluo Yuanen Yehui, Xu Xiaoyan and Ling Zichen.
