Chapter 326: Collision: Part 3
Margaret looked at Lin Sheng, wide-eyed. She felt like she had cried in vain. After a while, she crawled to her feet, letting out half a smile as she had at least regained the energy to stagger up on her feet after breaking free from the red silks.
When she thought that was the end it, she was struck dumb again, this time, by the sight of Shamika and the maid. Did the dark energy explosion just blow them away like that? Margaret looked up at Lin Sheng again, her mind boggled.
Shamika and the maid were no ordinary Darksiders. Their strength was at the ruler-class level. Just how powerful Lin Sheng was that he could blow the two away like dust in the wind? Just the thought of it was enough to send a chill up her spine, and she was not the only person having that thought.
Not too far away, Milla had seen what Margaret saw and thought the same. There was not a single expression on her face, yet her heart was roaring and growling as if in anger. She was hellbent on refusing to marry Lin Sheng earlier. So much as that if her grandpa insisted on bulldozing the marriage proposal through, she would fight Lin Sheng in a duel. She would beat the fella in front of everyone, humiliate him, and then refuse the marriage. But now what?
“Auldmandiller, you just dug a pit for me! If not for what happened today, I wouldn’t have known he was a kiss-ass fighter. I’d have been dead if I challenge him. I admit I’ve always wanted to find the most powerful Darksider! Someone like… like… him! He isn’t a bad choice at all!” Milla said in her mind.
Charged up by a strong sense of security and a sense of relief, Milla could not hold back her laughter.
Looking at those lying on the ground and the two poor fellas whom he had blown away, Lin Sheng realized what a blooper he had made.
He found something was blocking the way when he hurried back, so he slammed the door. But it would not budge. So he slammed it harder, but this time, it looked like he had overdone it.
“Argggh! I’ll kill you!”
Far out in the fields, a ray of dazzling red light was rising. In the light’s heart was a triangular shield with a lion head-engraving. The minute the thing was in the air, it shot out an overwhelming number of red silks at Lin Sheng.
“Be careful! It’s Cindersilk! Not ordinary dark energy!” Margaret warned.
“Cindersilk?” When Lin Sheng realized what it was, his dark-energy crystals had popped up to brace for the attack. The next second, the red silks pounded on the green dark-energy crystals with an ear-piercing clinking sound. They spent a large amount of dark energy every second as both tried to outdo each other by burning through their energy reserves.
Soon, the maid in the red dress got the upper hand. Her red silks overloaded Lin Sheng’s dark-energy crystals, penetrating through the spots with weaker defense, where energy replacement rate was slow. Lin Sheng’s face looked grave.
“Holy moly! This is the first time I’ve seen this kind of dark energy. Red. High density. If not for seeing with my own eyes, I wouldn’t have believed that there is dark energy in red!”
“Even dark-energy crystals could not stop it. The red stuff is too powerful a threat! I have to grab some and study them!” He reached out, got hold of a bunch of the red silk, and pulled it toward him.
In the field far away, the angry maid in the red dress sensed a mighty opposing force. But before she knew what happened, she was pulled outward, shooting like a rocket in Lin Sheng’s direction.
The red silks were slicing over Lin Sheng’s hands, but they caused no harm. Not a single white mark could the red silks leave on his dreaded dragon skin. Instead, they looked like a bunch of mantis shrimps, squirming frantically trying to break free. But the struggle was futile.
As the maid in the red dress flew in, Lin Sheng reached out and grabbed the maid by the neck. “You are too dangerous and a threat to the lives of others. You must be controlled.”
The maid in the red dress opened her mouth. But Lin Sheng was clamping her throat, she could only make a choking sound.
Her face turned red, and a huge swath of red silk waved behind her. Red light lit up on the triangular shield again and again, as though it was preparing for some big move. But when Lin Sheng squeezed his throat a little more, the red light would die down.
“Let Hong Ling go! You abbreviated piece of nothing!”
Not far away, a dazzling red light rose again. This time, a golden scimitar like a meniscus emerged from the light. There was a pattern of the star and sun on the blade, as well as vague white souls, on the hilt.
Shamika, face covered in red blood vessels, stepped into the air from the field, approaching Lin Sheng one step at a time.
By now, Lin Sheng’s face became even graver. From where these two elites came? Their level of cultivation in dark energy has already surpassed me. Not to mention the high-level dark energy vision they could create. The more he thought about this, the more cautious he became in his response.
He knew his dark energy was the weakest link, which was weaker than his Rock Dragon blood. In turn, his Rock Dragon blood was weaker than his holy power. So his dark energy was inferior to his opponents, and that was an undeniable fact.
“I can’t hide it anymore.” Lin Sheng raised his hand, his face still grave. “I can’t fight with quality, but I can make that up with numbers.”
While speaking, a large circle of green dark-energy rippled out from his body. The ripple spread to become a ring of ten meters in diameter in a blink of an eye. Inside the ring, two hundred halos exploded continuously. This meant each the total amount of dark energy used was 20,000.
Margaret’s eyes were out on stalks. She groaned involuntarily seeing what happened before her. What it was like to have 20,000 units of dark energy? This meant that Lin Sheng had stepped into the realm of a Four-winged Suppressor. Many dreamed of entering the suppressor-class realm, but that remained a dream. So far, even she had only slightly over 1,000 units of dark energy, and that was already in the upper reaches in Baine University. It would take her 20 years of cultivation to become a Four-winged Suppressor.
Even Milla had only slightly over 2,000. Compared with the huge dark energy ring, it was like the difference between the giant and the baby.
On the lawn in front of the fortress, the students watched. They were in shock. Some were so dumbstruck that they stared at the green ring with mouth agape. And Mylissa was among those.
Shurkadie and a few others leaned against the iron gate as if they were sleepwalking, watching from a distance Lin Sheng and Shamika fighting. Worries spread across their faces.
At last, the green ring and Shamika’s golden scimitar collided. The two high-intensity dark energies clashed as if two virtual beasts were fighting each other. They mowed, hit, and tore.
In a matter of two seconds, and before one could defeat the other, a dark green figure flew out from the entrance. It came in between the two fighting parties and cut the entangled dark energies in half. One was green and one was red.
“That’s enough!” It was Professor Auldmandiller’s voice.
