Huo Yuhao said, "I understand why I feel so familiar to her. Compared to her, you're evidently two or three years younger. She's more like the Goddess of Light that we exhibited! This also means that you'll look exactly like her in another two years. She's practically your sister—the two of you look too alike."
Wang Dong'er and the Wang Qiu'er he saw were actually two different people. This was too weird, especially since Huo Yuhao realized this after Wang Dong just became Wang Dong'er.
Huo Yuhao laughed bitterly. "Fortunately, we have the Haodong Power. Otherwise, it'll be difficult to tell you apart from Wang Qiu'er if you stood next to each other."
Wang Dong'er caressed his forehead and said, "You seem like you're speaking the truth. Are you sure you weren't running a fever that day and hallucinating?"
Huo Yuhao scratched his head and laughed. "That might be possible. Perhaps I just missed my goddess too much. Furthermore, you kept saying that you had a twin sister. That's why I might have imagined it. Well, it doesn't matter anymore. Whether or not she exists, I only need my Wang Dong'er."
They had returned to the Sea God's Pavilion as they spoke. After entering, Huo Yuhao laughed softly. "Are we staying over in your room or my room tonight?"
Wang Dong'er blushed. "You, what are you talking about? We can't live together. We can only do it after we marry…"
Her face was as red as an apple. Huo Yuhao lowered his head and was about to kiss her, but she dodged him. "Keep your distance."
Huo Yuhao chuckled. "You're overthinking it. I'm saying that we should cultivate together! Did you see how much faster our cultivation speed was with Haodong Power? Since you saw that, am I supposed to still cultivate on my own?"
Wang Dong was filled with caution, but she was evidently delighted. "We can't do that either. Who knows if you're getting up to something? Go back to your room and sleep."
Huo Yuhao looked very pitiful. "But I still have a lot left to say to you!"
Wang Dong'er laughed and said, "Let's talk tomorrow. Aren't you tired from this whole event? I felt your rapid heartbeat just now. To ensure my safety, I'll return to my room first." As she spoke, she quickly fled.
Huo Yuhao laughed as he pursued her. Because he used his soul thrusters, he managed to block off Wang Dong'er's path.
"Let's see where you can run to!" Huo Yuhao widened his arms and looked at her delightedly.
Wang Dong'er stopped in her tracks, and the smile on her face faded. She walked slowly towards Huo Yuhao and grabbed his waist lightly before leaning on his chest.
Her body was very soft, seemingly even softer than before. Huo Yuhao hugged her subconsciously, and his heartbeat started to increase rapidly.
It wasn't his first time hugging Wang Dong'er. When the two of them unleashed their martial fusion soul skills, he would often hug her. However, he was never as agitated as how he was now. It wasn't his good brother in his arms now, but…
"Yuhao, I'm really happy right now. Did you know that? I was really uncomfortable then. I was scared that you wouldn't choose me. What would I have done if you didn't choose me? I don't know. Before you made your choice, my mind was completely empty. After all, Ning Tian and Senior Ling are both very outstanding. They'd have helped you a lot too if they were together with you. At that point in time, you didn't know it was me either."
"I wanted to remove my hat on several occasions, but I didn't want to garner your recognition with just my looks. I also didn't want my appearance to bring you trouble in the blind date. Everything's been settled now. However, I know that we'll need some time to accept our new identities. I don't know if my feelings for you are more brotherly or romantic. I'm sure it's even more uncertain for you. Can we start over again? Give us some time."
After hearing Wang Dong's murmuring voice, Huo Yuhao grabbed onto her arms and pulled her closer. It was as if he wanted to fuse her into his body.
"Are you angry?" Wang Dong asked.
Huo Yuhao shook his head and said, "No! You're right. In this world, you understand me the best. It's true that we need some time for our feelings to change."
"I really don't know if my feelings for you are brotherly or more romantic. However…"
"However what?" Wang Dong was a little nervous as she struggled out of Huo Yuhao's arms. She was staring at him.
A smile surfaced across Huo Yuhao's face. "However, don't you think that I'm a lecher by reminding me of this in this position?"
Wang Dong'er laughed. "That's right. You're a lecher. A big lecher."
After she finished speaking, she turned around and ran away. However, Huo Yuhao was prepared. He pulled her back and hugged her again.
As he hugged her tiny waist, Huo Yuhao said softly, "You dared to call me a fool. You're also very foolish! Don't you understand me? Without your consent, I won't violate you! I can wait."
Wang Dong'er was a little domineering. "Of course you can wait. Even if you have to wait for your entire life, you must still wait! Take this." As she spoke, she suddenly turned around and gave Huo Yuhao something.
"What's this?" Huo Yuhao was a little perplexed as he looked at the pouch in his hand.
Wang Dong'er shook her head and said, "I don't know what it is either. My eldest uncle gave it to me. He said…" She blushed and lowered her head, "He said that I should give to this pouch to you if I think you're the right guy… I haven't seen what's inside it yet."
Huo Yuhao didn't understand. Why did the Clear Sky Sect's sect master give him a pouch? He subconsciously wanted to open it.
However, he was stopped by Wang Dong'er.
"You can't open it directly. My eldest uncle sealed it with his spiritual power. If you force it open, it'll destroy everything in it. Otherwise, I would have taken a peek at it. You need your spiritual power to reach a certain standard first before you can open it and see the contents."
Huo Yuhao tried to pour his spiritual power in, and felt a great obstruction force. Huo Yuhao was awed by Niu Tian's cultivation once again after realizing that he was able to use his spiritual power on such a small pouch. He wouldn't be able to overcome this spiritual seal with his current standard, and thus he couldn't take a look at its contents. He would only have a chance to open the pouch when he became a Soul Emperor, if his spiritual power continued to grow at its current speed.
"Alright, Dong'er. I have a question for you." Huo Yuhao said.
"What?" Wang Dong'er was confused as she looked at him.
Huo Yuhao asked, "Why is your hair so messy?"
Wang Dong'er laughed, "Fool. I braided my hair in the morning, but it was blown into a mess by the wind. That's why it's like this."
"I'm going." Wang Dong'er waved goodbye to him.
Huo Yuhao became depressed. "We really can't cultivate together?"
"No. Let's wait to calm down first." Wang Dong'er smiled. As they looked at each other, their gazes met. On this miraculous night, they couldn't control their feelings. However, the change in their relationship seemed to have added a layer between them. Whether it was Huo Yuhao or Wang Dong'er, they could clearly sense it. They knew that they were deeply imprinted in each other's hearts, but they needed time to accept the change in their relationship.
As he watched Wang Dong'er leave, Huo Yuhao looked a little lost. He returned to his room with his pouch. He felt his heart beating faster and faster. Just like what had happened on the Sea God's Lake, he recalled everything that he had experienced with Wang Dong.
Things had changed tonight. Huo Yuhao didn't cultivate, and his mind was filled with Wang Dong'er's figure. For some reason, her ravishing figure kept on pacing up and down as he entered his dreams.
In the morning, the warm sunlight penetrated his room and shone on his body. Perhaps he had been thinking too much last night, but he was feeling very lazy right now.
"Dong'er, Dong'er." He muttered and turned over in his bed.
Bang, bang, bang. The sound of knocking on the door rang out, jolting the half-asleep Huo Yuhao awake.
As he flipped his body around, he sat up. He subconsciously shouted, "Dong'er!"
He took a few steps forward to open the door. However, it wasn't Wang Dong'er standing outside. It was someone with an elderly-looking face.
Yan Shaozhe was amused as he looked at Huo Yuhao and said, "Young man, you're really a young man. You must have been through a lot last night."
Huo Yuhao's face turned red. "Dean Yan."
Yan Shaozhe laughed slightly. "Congratulations! Surely you didn't expect Wang Dong to be a girl, right?"
Huo Yuhao was stunned and replied, "From your tone, it seems like you knew about it?"
Yan Shaozhe laughed, "Of course I knew. Elder Mu also knew about it. That's why I mentioned that soul masters have a lot to learn. There's a book in the library that specifically introduces rare martial souls. If you have time, you can borrow it to read. It records the Radiant Butterfly Goddess in detail. The Radiant Butterfly Goddess is extremely ravishing, and it only appears on a female soul master. That's why we knew she was a girl from the moment she entered the academy."
Huo Yuhao was stunned. "Then why didn't you tell me? That, and why did you still let me stay in the same room as her?"
Yan Shaozhe said, "I'm sure you know that Wang Dong'er is from the Clear Sky Sect, and is the most probable successor to the sect. Our academy has a close relationship with the Clear Sky Sect. Why would we expose her? Let's go, many people are waiting for you."
"Waiting for me?" Huo Yuhao still felt slightly in a daze. He hadn't had a good rest last night.
