Translated by XephiZ

The Swift Star Wolf was sprinting in an imposing manner with winds racing around him, like an arrow being released from a bow…
As the first rippling wave crossed the Swift Star Wolf, the creature maintained his pace, yet his eyes flickered with a hint of doubt.
As the second wave came by, the Swift Star Wolf’s savagery was erased, replaced by a gentler look.
As the third wave of ripple struck, the Swift Star Wolf suddenly slowed down and lost half of his imposing manner.
Finally, the Swift Star Wolf arrived before the Ding Yumian as the fourth wave of ripple was produced. The ferocious look that the Swift Star Wolf previously had completely disappeared. Even the claw he had raised to execute the attack had dropped to the ground in the process…
“Good doggie,” Ding Yumian reached out her hand and fondled the disheveled hair on the Swift Star Wolf’s neck.
The Swift Star Wolf was no longer a fierce creature, but had completely turned into a husky. He stuck out his tongue and seemed extremely comfortable when the girl fondled his hair!
“Go play by yourself,” whispered Ding Yumian to the Swift Star Wolf.
The Swift Star Wolf was extraordinarily obedient. He waved his stiff tail and ran outside of the boundary and sat on the ground, like an enormous sled dog. The only thing missing was a collar on his neck!
Mo Fan wore a disgusted look when he saw it happen. Was that Summoned Beast really his fierce, belligerent Swift Star Wolf?
Before at the Drifting Sand River, Xinxia had been casting Psychic Element: Pacify all along. Mo Fan had already thought that the Spell was too good to be true, yet he never knew it was so incredible. She somehow turned his ferocious Summoning Beast into a meek dog…
“Can’t you be any more useful?” Mo Fan could not stand it any longer. He sent the Swift Star Wolf back to his own dimension.
The truth was, he was afraid that Ding Yumian would somehow convince his Swift Star Wolf to bite him instead!
Luckily, Ding Yumian was not an Advanced Magician like the Demoness. Otherwise, if she cast the Psychic Element’s Mind Control on the Swift Star Wolf, a creature would actually betray its master!
The Swift Star Wolf was hopeless, Mo Fan had no choice but to focus on his plan on utilizing the Focus necklace. It was his only way to win the duel…
“Fiery Fist: Nine Halls!”
Ding Yumian was a madwoman when it came to duels. As the Fiery Fist that was twice its usual size slammed into the ground, the faint brown flames produced by the nine Fire Pillars covered the entire area!
The Fire Seed producing the faint-brown flames was not as powerful as the Rose Flame, yet Ding Yumian’s outstanding innate talent left Mo Fan with no room to escape!
A Fire Pillar suddenly jetted out from the ground underneath Mo Fan. He initially thought he had already left the coverage of the Spell, yet the Fire Pillar that was twice as thick as normal took Mo Fan by surprise. When Mo Fan realized that he was still in the range of the Spell, the Fire Pillar had already knocked him into the air.
Falling from the sky, Mo Fan suffered the burns of the flames nearby. The clothes on his upper body were burned into ashes, exposing his scorched skin.
Mo Fan felt himself suffering from a concussion as he landed on the ground, yet he rose to his feet like an invincible cockroach despite the remaining flames produced by the Fire Pillars still burning around him. He spat out a mouthful of blood.
Ding Yumian glanced at Mo Fan with a hint of astonishment.
“You’re still not using your Equipment to protect you under such circumstances?” she asked him.
She could not tell if it was because of Mo Fan’s outstanding Fire Resistance from his Soul Seed, or the fact that having three Elements actually made him stronger, that he was still able to stand up after being struck by the Fire Pillar. Normally, her opponents would be half-crippled after suffering a direct hit from the Fire Pillar.
“How could I say no since you’re so eager to see my body?” Mo Fan replied with a grin.
“You’ve got a smooth tongue, but you won’t be able to stand for the next month if you don’t use your Equipment to protect yourself from my next attack,” said Ding Yumian coldly.
Mo Fan remained in his spot. He had already started to draw a Star Pattern.
Two blazing red Star Orbits intersected one another, forming the outline of a fiery Star Pattern. Countless Stars began to appear around them, as a bright line connected them together…
“It’s no use!” Ding Yumian knew Mo Fan had been driven into a dead end.
As a matter of fact, Mo Fan knew his Equipment would not make any difference, since he was unable to cast any Spells. The Armor would only buy him some time.
Ding Yumian thought Mo Fan had given up when she saw him casting the Spell.
She had given Mo Fan some time to draw a Star Pattern, as she was trying to see what the guy was up to.
However, as the fourth Orbit was completed, Ding Yumian had no intention of letting him continue further.
Her Psychic Star Orbits was completed almost instantly. The Soul Impact produced an invisible ray of energy, dashing in Mo Fan’s direction at lightning speed.
Mo Fan’s body was unharmed, but his mind immediately suffered a great blow. The Stars that were being aligned rapidly suddenly fled in all directions at the impact of the Psychic Attack, completely ignoring his control!
The necklace on Mo Fan’s chest suddenly emitted an ocean-blue glow.
The energy entered Mo Fan’s mind. Instead of constructing a mental wall to protect him against the attack, it entered deep into his mind and improved his focus!
The Soul Impact simply worked by inflicting a paralyzing pain on one’s mind, in order to stop the Magician from being able to control their energy due to the pain. However, the Focus Necklace was able to improve its bearer’s focus significantly. The pain was not reduced, but the Magician’s endurance was improved.
The Stars fled in fear, yet Mo Fan used brute force to force them back into positions.
The Star Pattern almost crumbled while the fifth Orbit was being constructed. However, the help from the Focus necklace managed to pull the Stars back in time. The fifth Orbit was finally completed, and the sixth Orbit started to form.
“A Focus Magic Tool?” Ding Yumian finally realized why Mo Fan dared to cast a Spell in front of her.
It was too late to cast another Soul Impact. Besides, under the effects of the Focus Necklace, the Soul Impact might not be enough to interrupt the channeling.
“It’s my turn to attack!” Mo Fan was engulfed in wild, blazing flames. Even the air surrounding him was set aflame.
