PMG Chapter 1000: Celestial Steps
There were some people trying to get up the stairs, but they were very slow.
“Those stairs contain a very intense energy. Going up them is the only way to access Tiantai.” said Qiu Yue Xin while smiling at Lin Feng.
“Alright.” said Lin Feng nodding. He then started walking up the stairs. But very quickly, a strange strength oppressed him.
Qiu Yue Xin looked at Lin Feng who smiled and said, “That flight of stairs can sense my Qi. It seems to sense if we’re strong or weak. It’s difficult to control those stairs.”
Controlling that kind of incredible invention was difficult.
“Let’s try to get up!” said Qiu Yue Xin laughing. She then tried to walk up the stairs as well and reached the second step. Then, she started running, she was running with incredible speed.
Lin Feng did the same. As expected, the oppressive strength was intensifying with each step they took.
“Lin Feng, you’re too slow. There are 18,000 stairs in total. If we manage to get up, that will be our first test to becoming imperial cultivation disciples. With your speed, you’ll need millions of years to arrive.” said Qiu Yue Xin jokingly. She wasn’t as cold as when he had touched her before. She was fun and enjoyable.
“Alright.” said Lin Feng smiling. Her smile was warm and gentle, just like Xin Ye’s. Lin Feng remembered Xin Ye back then in the palace..
“Bzzz!” Lin Feng used wind energy and started moving extremely fast. It seemed like he was flying but in fact his feet were touching every single step. In a flash, he ran up three hundred steps.
However, three hundred out of 18,000 wasn’t much, especially given that the force was becoming even more oppressive. 18,000, that was a frightening number.
Becoming an imperial cultivation disciple wasn’t easy!
“Lin Feng, hurry up!” said Qiu Yue Xin and while smiling indifferently.
Lin Feng used wind intent. His wind intent was already level six now. Even those who had a higher intent level weren’t as fast as him because he had also mastered the Xiao Yao agility technique. He was faster than most cultivators of the fifth Tian Qi layer.
In a flash, a thousand more steps.
“A thousand steps, I’m so tired.” said Qiu Yue Xin. She looked at Lin Feng, smiled and said, “Not bad, level six wind intent.”
“Should we continue playing?” said Qiu Yue Xin while smiling.
“You play and I’ll watch.” said Lin Feng giggling. Qiu Yue Xin frowned and stopped smiling. She suddenly looked cold and detached, the same as when he had first met her.
“Let’s continue. We don’t know how much more we’ll have to do before the exam.” said Qiu Yue Xin. Then, she continued running up the stairs. She didn’t stop this time and didn’t turn around to look at Lin Feng.
Lin Feng frowned and didn’t understand what was wrong with her. Was she suffering from mood swings?
However, Lin Feng remembered each second she had smiled, her smile was unforgettable.
Three thousand steps. Qiu Yue Xin stopped again and took a deep breathe. She was feeling the weight now. The oppressive force was getting quite heavy.
Lin Feng stopped next to her. He was still smiling and was feeling relaxed.
“Bzzz!” A strong wind started blowing and Lin Feng’s clothes were torn. Qiu Yue Xin started running even faster than before and didn’t stop for a while this time.
“Who is she?” whispered Lin Feng looking at Qiu Yue Xin. She was very beautiful. They couldn’t be the same, they couldn’t even be sisters, but then, why did he have the feeling he knew her? They had known each other for such a short time. Her smile was so… Well, it gave Lin Feng an unusual feeling.
Lin Feng didn’t think too much about it though. He continued running up the stairs using wind intent and following Qiu Yue Xin. He was a few dozen steps behind her.
“Qiu Yue Xin!” someone said. The voice came from the sky. Qiu Yue Xin and Lin Feng stopped.
“What?” said Qiu Yue Xin looking at that person coldly. A few people had arrived and looked at Qiu Yue Xin.
“I’m happy to see you here.” said that young man smiling and nodding at Qiu Yue Xin. He then looked at Lin Feng and said, “What a coincidence, Brother Lin, you’re here too!”
“What a small world.” whispered Lin Feng coldly. It was Yang Zi Lan.
Lin Feng slowly turned his head and looked at the people next to him: Yang Zi Ye, Chou Jun Luo, Jiang Ning.
Chou Jun Luo glared at Lin Feng with murder in his eyes. He had humiliated him and injured him in front of everybody and that was not something he would forgive.
Now, Yang Zi Lan and his friends were there. They weren’t surprised to see Lin Feng behind Qiu Yue Xin though.
“Brother Lin, you’re right, it’s a small world.” said Yang Zi Lan smiling, but that smile was hypocritical and made Lin Feng feel uncomfortable.
Yang Zi Lan looked at Qiu Yue Xin and said, “What a coincidence to see you Miss Qiu. You should come with us. The more the merrier! And you’ll have people to talk with.”
“I’m not interested.” said Qiu Yue Xin coldly.
Yang Zi Lan didn’t mind. Qiu Yue Xin was known for being cold in Ba Huang Province. So he expected her to act like that.
“We’re not bothering you any longer then.” said Yang Zi Lan as he moved away to let her pass.
Qiu Yue Xin turned around and said to Lin Feng, “Let’s continue, Lin Feng.”
“Eh?” Yang Zi Lan was surprised. Did they know each other?
Besides, they seemed close and had were travelling together. Qiu Yue Xin was with a guy?!
Yang Zi Ye, Chou Jun Luo and the others were all surprised. Qiu Yue Xin was known for her beauty. She was an aristocrat too. According to rumors, very few people had seen her face because she rarely came out. And now, surprisingly, she was with Lin Feng!?
