Although she was usually cold, she truly did many, many things for him.
"Gu Yue, thank you," Tang Wulin mumbled softly.
Everyone heard his words being broadcast through the speakers.
Yue Zhengyu was feeling pleased with himself inside his room. He was fiddling with his clothes. He had brought quite a number of clothes in his spatial storage unit. The amount he brought clearly exceeded the capacity of his wardrobe.
"That's it. You'll be the center of attention for sure!" Yue Zhengyu's eyes brightened. He took out a suit and placed it on the bed.
It was a pure white suit with faint gold-colored stripes on the collar, that was the crest of the Holy Angel Clan. A white suit, white trousers, white girdle, white shirt, white bowtie, and a pair of white leather shoes. His attire was completely white with the sole exception of the faint gold stripes on his suit's collar, which was the finishing touch.
The suit was made by the hands of a master. The golden clan crest matched his long, blond hair.
"I'm certain that I'll be the most dashing guy out there tonight," Yue Zhengyu said with a smug look on his face.
He changed into the suit and stood in front of the mirror. He stared at his own reflection with besotted eyes and mumbled to himself, "To think that a person can be this handsome, so handsome that I have the urge to rape myself! I'm too handsome."
He adjusted his bow tie and took out a clean pocket square with a golden pattern and placed it into the pocket of his suit. Yue Zhengyu opened the cabin door and walked out with satisfaction.
Coincidentally, the cabin door opposite him opened at the same time as Xu Xiaoyan walked out from within.
Upon seeing each other, the two of them were both stunned.
Xu Xiaoyan almost felt herself swoon when she saw Yue Zhengyu in his white suit and meticulously tidied hair. Yue Zhengyu could certainly be regarded as tall and handsome. He had a slender figure and was about the same height as Tang Wulin, though a little skinnier. Currently, his white suit made him look tall and straight, slender and with a hint of nobility. His bad boy grin even made Xu Xiaoyan's heart flutter.
Yue Zhengyu was also taken aback when he saw Xu Xiaoyan. Today Xu Xiaoyan wore a gown. A short gown to be precise. What happened to be in perfect harmony with his attire without prior consultation was that Xu Xiaoyan's knee-length dress was also white. The upper part of her garment exposed her shoulders in a simple evening dress fashion, while the lower part was a pleated skirt. Her white dress was decorated with golden stars.
Generally speaking, when soul masters had their outfits tailored, they liked to include elements related to their own martial souls. Yue Zhengyu did that, and so did Xu Xiaoyan.
However, standing in front of each other, they realized with shock that their dresses complemented each other perfectly. Their outfits even looked like a couple's attire.
"You look beautiful today." Yue Zhengyu offered his praise sincerely.
Xu Xiaoyan's pretty face turned pink. "Thanks."
"Yes? Who's calling for me?" From another door, Xie Xie jumped out.
Completely opposite to Yue Zhengyu, this fellow wore a black suit, white shirt, and a black bowtie, the most traditional formal dress.
Xie Xie was almost as handsome as Yue Zhengyu, and he was only slightly shorter. He had a naturally cold appearance, just like when Tang Wulin had first met him.
He was wearing a suit now, and he had the air of a jade tree in the wind.
The door opposite Xie Xie's opened and out walked Yuanen Yehui. She was still in her male form. She wore red trousers and a black shirt. Although her male form was not too attractive, Yuanen Yehui had a slender build. The black shirt and red trousers displayed her figure, making her look tall and straight. With the addition of the common knowledge that she was the owner of the Fallen Angel martial soul, she practically sparkled before everyone.
Xu Xiaoyan smiled and said, "Yuanen, if you were holding a rose in your mouth, I would have fallen in love with you."
Yuanen looked at her, then she looked at Yue Zhengyu, "Since when did the two of you get together?"
"Huh? We didn't." Xu Xiaoyan's pretty face flushed red with embarrassment. She turned and fled.
Yue Zhengyu darted an angry glance at Xie Xie and puffed out his chest, "Xie Xie, who knew that you'd look this handsome if you dressed up a bit."
Xie Xie replied smugly, "But of course."
Yue Zhengyu sighed softly. "It's just that you don't have the noble quality that I have." After speaking, he too turned and left.
"What the hell? What do you mean? Don't you run away!" Xie Xie was enraged. That guy had said this in front of Yuanen Yehui! He ran after him.
Yuanen Yehui shook her head with slight helplessness. She followed them as well. At the same time, she thought, 'A rose? I like them too, I suppose. Especially red roses.'
They had barely taken the first step when the doors of Xu Lizhi and Ye Xinglan opened at practically the same time. The two of them looked at each other and both were astonished.
Xu Lizhi did not change his attire. He still wore his dark green garment which exposed his belly. He had a foolish grin on his face. Ye Xinglan had changed into a dark green dress. She looked somewhat conservative, but she was still stunningly beautiful with her icy demeanor and remarkable looks.
"Sister Xinglan, you're so beautiful," Xu Lizhi stared at her and even gulped subconsciously. His chubby cheeks bobbled up and down.
"Why didn't you change your clothes?" Ye Xinglan asked.
"Me? I don't have anything else!" Xu Lizhi scratched his head. "Maybe I shouldn't go."
"It's alright. Just go. Wait a minute for me." As she said this, Ye Xinglan closed her door again as she returned to her cabin.
Xu Lizhi stared blankly at the space as he stood there. He chuckled as he made fun of himself. "With my body, I won't look good no matter what I wear."
He had not waited for long before Ye Xinglan's door opened again. When Xu Lizhi laid eyes on her once more, he could not keep them from bulging. "Sister Xinglan, you..."
Ye Xinglan was still the same, but she had changed her clothes. She was wearing Shrek Academy's uniform.
"Let's go," Ye Xinglan stepped forward and pinched his chubby cheek lovingly. She patted his broad shoulder and started walking out.
Xu Lizhi gulped once more and hastily caught up to her. "Sister Xinglan, I'm sorry. I..."
"What are you apologizing for? It's not like you wanted to be this chubby. It was decided by your martial soul. Besides, chubby is cute! You have to be a man with the qualities of a bear. When you lie down, you have that silly cuteness about you. When you're hugged, you warm the person hugging you, and when you're leaned against, you're like a cushion. When people are tortured by cold and hunger during winter, and when the ammunition and food supplies run out, you can even sacrifice yourself to serve as emergency rations. However, when you're in danger, you'll stand up and turn into the fiercest soul beast in the world. How great a sense of security is that!"
"Oh, then I'll just be your bear. Sister Xinglan, do you like white bears or black bears? Or maybe brown bears?"
"I like silly bears."
"I-I'm plenty silly! Hehe."
The banquet hall of the S.S. Star Luo was on the second floor. The spacious hall could accommodate up to a thousand guests at once. Currently, it was already packed.
Because this was a friendly exchange, all the tables and chairs were removed. Only tall cocktail tables were arranged in the hall with some finger food and drinks served on them.
It was undeniable that Star Luo Empire and Douluo Federation had given much thought to this event. Both parties had the intentions of building a closer relationship. The interior of the hall was decorated with articles of gold and jade. The diplomatic corps members entered in their splendid attire. The hall livened up quickly.
The alcoholic beverage served in the banquet hall was sparkling wine. Sparkling wine was the best beverage to make people happy because the carbon dioxide in the wine could deliver the alcohol to various parts of the human body in the shortest time possible. That was why sparkling wine was also known as the most delightful wine.
Yue Zhengyu was the first from Shrek Academy to arrive in the banquet hall. As he approached the door, he immediately puffed out his chest. He wore a faint smile on his face showing four clean white teeth and walked slowly into the banquet hall.
