PMG Chapter 1005: As Hard As Reaching the Clouds
Lin Feng looked at her, he was startled. He quickly jumped and tried to grab her.
“Boom boom boom!” He caught her in his arms and boom! The oppressive force was suddenly so much more powerful.
“Let me go, you can’t stand two levels of oppressive force at the same time.” said Qiu Yue Xin. Lin Feng firmly held her in his arms while his blood boiled. He managed to reduce the shaking and lay her on a step. They had fallen down of a few dozen steps.
“Are you alright?” asked Lin Feng wiping the blood off the corner of her mouth. It was unbearable for Lin Feng to see Qiu Yue Xin injured.
“I’m alright.” Qiu Yue Xin jumped out of Lin Feng’s arms and sat down on a step. She looked at him perplexed. She hadn’t thought Lin Feng’s blood was so strong. Surprisingly, Lin Feng had managed to catch her in his arms and stand her oppressive force along with his, how could he manage that? Especially seeing how she couldn’t.
“What happened?” asked Lin Feng. She had only 81 steps to go and was propelled away.
“The strength of those stairs is terrifying.” said Qiu Yue Xin.
“I’ll try.” said Lin Feng. Very quickly, he arrived where Qiu Yue Xin was.
“Be careful, Lin Feng, it’s really scary.” warned Qiu Yue Xin. They were alone at that height. Many people couldn’t stand the force and had to train to get higher. Lin Feng and Qiu Yue Xin had used lots of blood strength and pure Qi to get there.
“18,000 steps!” said someone at that moment. Lin Feng Qiu Yue Xin looked over and saw someone standing there.
“Someone from Tiantai!” Lin Feng and Qiu Yue Xin looked at that person. Someone was already at the top, they had to be from Tiantai.
That person wore normal clothes and looked both calm and simple. That person was wearing a necklace and had no hair at all.
“Is that a Buddhist monk?” whispered Lin Feng to himself. That person looked like a Buddhist monk.
But Qiu Yue Xin said something else, “Sadhu!”
“The last 81 steps are the most difficult, reaching the clouds is as hard as climbing those last steps. You should come back for the exam.” said the Sadhu in a low voice, but was distinct.
“As hard as reaching the clouds.” whispered Lin Feng. Those last steps were the real exam. The first step to becoming an imperial cultivation disciple was to climb up the whole flight of stairs.
“Master, how many do we have to climb to pass the exam?” asked Qiu Yue Xin to the young Sadhu. Even though he was young, they understood that he was also probably a very strong cultivator. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be in Tiantai and wouldn’t be there to protect the flight of stairs.
“Those eighty one steps are divided into nine different sorts of steps. Each group of nine steps contains different sorts of oppressive strength, going up two groups is enough to qualify.” replied the Sadhu.
Qiu Yue Xin looked at Lin Feng. Two groups is like 10 floors, nine groups must be very difficult then.
“Master, can I try?” asked Lin Feng to the Sadhu.
The Sadhu smiled and said, “Today you can’t, but since we’re old friends, try taking a step.”
“Old friends?” Lin Feng was confused. He looked at the Sadhu, but he didn’t know him, why was he saying that they were old friends?
“Master, do you know me?” asked Lin Feng. He was too curious.
“Lin Feng!” said the Sadhu. Lin Feng was astonished. He knew him!
Qiu Yue Xin was also astonished. The Sadhu knew Lin Feng! What was going on? Someone from Tiantai, an emperor’s personal disciple, knew Lin Feng!
Qiu Yue Xin smiled at Lin Feng in a resplendent way and said, “You still have many things to tell me.”
“Eh…” Lin Feng was speechless. He looked at Qiu Yue Xin and said, “You never asked either, but…”
Then, Lin Feng looked at the Sadhu again and said, “But, I’ve never seen you. Where do you know me from?”
“From my second fellow disciple.” said the Sadhu smiling. Then, he said, “Alright, Lin Feng, do your best to become an imperial cultivation disciple, you’ll understand then.”
“Second fellow disciple!”
Lin Feng was astonished.
He suddenly remembered the one Qiong Qi always called a real genius, the second personal disciple of Emperor Shi and Emperor Yu, Hou Qing Lin!
Indeed, that had to be him. Hou Qing Lin had come to Gan Yu and helped Lin Feng a few times. But Lin Feng still didn’t understand why.
Hou Qing Lin was so powerful he even humiliated people like Xuan Yuan. In front of Hou Qing Lin, Lin Feng was a spec of dust, why did he attach so much importance to Lin Feng? Besides, he had helped him a few times.
Lin Feng was astonished. Qiu Yue Xin’s smile was even brighter. That guy surprisingly knew people from Tiantai and on top of that, Sadhus. His social status was directly much higher. Qiu Mei and the others wouldn’t be disrespectful to him if they knew that. The Yang Clan either. He wouldn’t have been humiliated when he accompanied Yang Zi Ye back to her clan.
Qiu Yue Xin was impatient to see Lin Feng become an imperial cultivation disciple, those people would be surprised to see that Lin Feng knew Tiantai’s people.
Lin Feng started going up again, his blood was boiling.
The strength contained in the steps depended on the cultivator’s strength. However, Lin Feng’s strength was a lot higher compared to his cultivation level. Therefore, the steps in front of him weren’t difficult to climb. It was extremely difficult for Qiu Yue Xin because her strength was the same as her cultivation level, if not lower.
Qiu Yue Xin was wondering if Lin Feng could climb the first nine nine steps.
Lin Feng slowly started going up.
“Boom boom boom!” a powerful oppressive force crashed onto Lin Feng’s back. The oppressive force there was even more intense than the previous steps. Lin Feng’s clothes and hair were fluttering in the whistling wind.
Qiu Yue Xin was nervous, she was staring at Lin Feng, motionless. Lin Feng was incredibly persistent.
He used his demon strength as well as his strength of the Buddha, right now, he was strong enough to kill a cultivator of the fifth Tian Qi layer and even ordinary cultivators of the sixth Tian Qi layer.
He slowly walked up, explosions sounded as Lin Feng persevered.
The force was rolling in the sky. 80 more steps to go. Lin Feng’s eyes were twinkling with sharp lights. His blood seemed like it was going to explode.
Qiu Yue Xin’s nervousness slowly faded and she smiled. Lin Feng was incredible. Lin Feng had just succeeded where she had failed.
