Soul Land 3: Legend Of The Jade Emperor Book 2 Chapter 64
Volume 2: We At Shrek Bois Chapter 64 Fluff
Update 2 months ago
A/N" Shrek Arc is almost over! Thank God! There was so little canon content to exploit in this arc that it was pretty painful to write. Luckily, StarLuo has far more content to use.
When Huang Yu returned to his dorm that night, Gu Yue was already in her pajamas as she read a book on her bed. He had already taken a shower and changed his clothes back at Nox's headquarters so he didn't look as if he had just battled a lightning tribulation.
"Hey," Huang Yu greeted as he entered the room.
Gu Yue looked up when she heard Huang Yu. "Welcome back," Gu Yue greeted before she kept the book that was in her hands.
"Have you eaten today?" Gu Yue's voice suddenly sounded out as Huang Yu was about to jump on his bed. Raising an eyebrow, Huang Yu turned to her direction to see an incredibly shy look on her face.
"Not yet." Huang Yu replied back, pretending to be oblivious to what Gu Yue was currently doing. In truth, he had already eaten a bit back at Nox, but he didn't want to refuse Gu Yue at this moment.
A look of joy appeared on Gu Yue's face before it quickly turned shy once more. "In that case, why don't we eat together? I bought a bit too much food just now back to the dorm to eat."
"Really? Thanks Gu Yue, I don't know what I'd do without you."
Hearing those words, Gu Yue's face turned crimson. However, she didn't lose her cool. "It's nothing. It was just a coincidence that I brought back a bit too much."
The both of them moved towards the sole table in the dorm room before each taking a chair of their own and sitting down next to each other. The table wasn't that big, so the two of them had to sit quite closely.
With a gesture of her hands, Gu Yue took out several plates of food from her spatial ring. Each one of them were exquisite delicacies that would serve to enhance the blood essence of an individual tremendously.
Seeing this, Huang Yu nearly sweatdropped. Gu Yue wasn't trying to be discreet about her motives at all, not that he was complaining of course.
The two of them chatted cheerfully for a bit as they ate. At one point, Gu Yue mustered up enough courage to do something that she had read about in a book.
"Huang Yu," Gu Yue called out in a delicate voice.
Gu Yue took a deep breath as she picked up a piece of meat with her chopsticks before putting it in Huang Yu's plate. "Here, have some. You haven't tried it yet."
A mischievous smirk appeared on Huang Yu's face when he saw this. "Can you feed me?" Huang Yu teased.
"What?!?" Gu Yue exclaimed, accidentally letting her voice out a bit louder than she had intended it to.
Huang Yu chuckled. "I just heard that food tastes better when it's fed by someone else."
Several expressions appeared on Gu Yue's face in an instant, from shock, to embarrassment, then to rather strangely, determination.
"Okay then. I'll do it. However, you have to do the same for me after this then, alright?" Gu Yue dared back.
Hoho, things were getting rather interesting now.
Gu Yue didn't hesitate as she lifted up a spoonful of food from Huang Yu's plate before slowly bringing it to his open mouth.
As he closed it, he let out a sound of satisfaction, chewing a few times and savouring the taste of the food before he swallowed.
"So was it true?" Gu Yue asked.
"Why don't you try it for yourself?" Huang Yu asked back as he picked up a spoonful of food from Gu Yue's plate and brought it to her mouth.
She took a look at the spoon before she opened her mouth. When the spoon filled with food entered her mouth, she felt a tinge of sweetness in her heart despite the food being salty.
"So do you have your answer now?"
"Mm." Gu Yue said rather cheerfully.
With that, Gu Yue's mood visibly brightened as the two of them continued to eat. When Huang Yu finished eating first, he turned to look at her. Doing so, Huang Yu couldn't help but stare as she ate slowly yet enchantingly in his eyes.
As Gu Yue finished with her meal as well, she noticed Huang Yu's stare. She couldn't help but feel embarrassment at his stare despite feeling happiness as well. However, a sense of insecurity suddenly appeared as it swiftly started ruining her mood.
"Why are you staring? I'm not that pretty." Gu Yue mumbled out inadvertently.
Hearing this, Huang Yu let out a sigh before he shook his head. "Don't put yourself down like that Gu Yue."
"But it's the truth isn't it? Take a look at Na'er, Ye Xinglan or even Xu Xiaoyan. Compared to them, I'm really not that pretty." as she said those words, her own mood was slowly starting to get worse.
To her surprise, she was suddenly captured in a hug by Huang Yu. She didn't get a chance to react before Huang Yu's next words entered her ears once more.
"Don't say that about yourself. Why do you need to compare yourself with the others? You're amazing just the way you are to me y'know? "
At those words, Gu Yue's eyes widened. Her eyes began to fog as she heard his words. She nodded her head slightly, not fully trusting her voice at the moment before Huang Yu stopped his hug.
Despite this, the two of them were still incredibly close at the moment, They stared at each other, transfixed with one another at just this one moment.
A strange attraction seemed to draw their lips closer to each other as they both slowly closed their eyes.
"Hey Big Sis Gu Yue! Can we talk about the battle armour right now or is this a bad time?"
The sudden interruption caused the both of them to snap out of the trance they were in and jump up in shock.
Gu Yue shook her head before shouting out. "It's a bad time."
"Oh, sorry then Big Sis!"
With that, footsteps were heard before they slowly became inaudible.
At this point, Huang Yu and Gu Yue looked at each other awkwardly for a moment. Huang Yu was the first to break the awkward silence with a cough. "Well, I think I should go to bed now."
"Ummm, yeah I think I should too."
The two of them swiftly turned off the lights before they went to their own beds, both having innumerable thoughts in their heads as they both tried to sleep but couldn't.
That night made for one very sleepless night for the two of them.
A few months passed by in a flash. Huang Yu spent most of his time during those months either training, managing Nox or working on his cultivation manual. With all the hard work he had put into his cultivation manual, the progress that he had made on it was astounding, especially after he comprehended the essence of living in the moment.
By his calculations, his cultivation manual should be finished sometime this year. He could be considered 90% done and he had a very good framework of what he needed to do next to complete it.
This naturally brought a wave of excitement to Huang Yu. From what he could tell from his cultivation manual already, after he started cultivating it, he wouldn't need to fear anything in this world anymore.
In the past, there was always a chance that Huang Yu could be incapacitated before he could truly start using the King's Wisdom. However, with the cultivation manual, that weakness would be eliminated against the Spirit Masters of this world.
At this moment, a competition was being held between the first grade and the second grade students. This competition was held in order to see who were worthy to face the third grade students.
There were several types of battles, such as the one vs one, two vs two and the seven vs seven competition. Huang Yu and Gu Yue had chosen to join the two vs two battles together.
Tang Wulin had actually asked Gu Yue to work together in the two vs two battle initially, but he had been rejected. Hence, he reluctantly wouldn't take part in that portion of the competition.
The battles first began with a two vs two between Xie Xie with Xu Xiaoyan and Ye Xingmo and Duan Huanxiao.
Xie Xie and Xu Xiaoyan had improved massively over the past few months so the results of the battle
They weren't very pretty.
The next battle was the one that had no suspense for the first grade. It was Huang Yu and Gu Yue vs Yuanen Yehui and Yue Zhengyu.
When it was heard that the two of them were fighting together, everyone in the first grade knew that that fight had its results already set in stone. Although they didn't like Huang Yu as a result of Na'er's machinations previously, they had to admit that he was a monster. This wasn't even counting the fact that Gu Yue, the second strongest in the class, was fighting alongside him.
As Huang Yu and Gu Yue faced down Yuanen Yehui and Yue Zhengyu on the stage, Huang Yu greeted Yuanen rather cheerfully. He could be said to be acquainted with her. On the other hand, Huang Yu didn't greet Yue Zhengyu since he had no idea who he was.
Both sides prepared to battle before Elder Cai's voice commemorated the beginning of the battle.
