PMG Chapter 1024: In Tiantai
“It was a symbol!”
The crowd looked at Lin Feng with the highest respect.
People had come from everywhere for Emperor Shi and Emperor Yu’s recruitment process.
There were many geniuses from everywhere in the province and even from abroad. Most of those strong cultivators had only managed to climb up to the third group of steps. Very few had managed to climb the fourth one, and only two had managed to climb the fifth one. Meng Ba and Xuan Yuan.
Only one person had managed to surpass them and that someone wasn’t very famous. That young man had climbed the nine last groups of steps fearlessly.
That young man was Lin Feng. People had heard about Lin Feng before, first because he had rescued Yang Zi Ye and had been humiliated by them. Then, because Qiu Yue Xin had fallen in love with him. However, this time, everybody would remember Lin Feng as the man who climbed the nine last groups of steps at Emperor Shi and Emperor Yu’s recruitment process.
When Lin Feng heard the Sadhu, he smiled and bowed, “It was pure luck. I wasn’t sure I could do it.”
“You relied on your corporeal strength, your indomitable determination, your strong analytical and understanding abilities and… you were fearless. That is not luck. You are the true master of your destiny. Alright, let’s move on. Let’s go to Tiantai.” said the Sadhu smiling.
“Okay.” Lin Feng nodded. He turned around and smiled at Yang Zi Lan. Yang Zi Lan had the impression that Lin Feng was making fun of him and that annoyed him.
“Yue Xin, see you in Tiantai in a few seconds!” said Lin Feng smiling at Qiu Yue Xin. She was also smiling in a resplendent way. Lin Feng had managed to climb all the stairs. The news would spread quickly in Tianjing City. Even the Qiu Clan would respect him.
Lin Feng slowly turned around, he looked at the golden Imperial Zun key.
According to the Sadhu, that was the best key. What advantage would he get with it?
Lin Feng grabbed the key, golden lights surrounded his body and in a flash, he appeared somewhere else.
It was a vast area filled with people.
Lin Feng turned around and walked towards the edge of the place. The Sadhu was sitting cross-legged in the sky and there were the stairs down there.
Lin Feng turned around and gazed into the distance. There were incredible palaces.
The Qi there was pure and celestial. It was similar to the Qi in the Jade Emperor’s room in his palace.
“Tiantai, an imperial place!” whispered Lin Feng. Tiantai was a small world and the emperors were granting access to those who could climb the stairs. They opened the doors to Tiantai only to recruit imperial cultivation disciples.
The people around Lin Feng had managed to make it there because they had obtained a key. Everyone was calm. Nobody could cause trouble in Emperor Shi and Emperor Yu’s territory. They all calmly waited for the exam to start.
But at that moment, Lin Feng realized that there was something wrong. Everybody was staring at him.
He was standing higher than everyone else, as if he was their leader.
Two other people were close to Lin Feng, but lower than him: Xuan Yuan and Meng Ba.
Just under them, there weren’t too many people: Qiu Yue Xin, Lin Ruo Tian, Yang Zi Lan.
The lower, the more people there were.
“It’s like a podium!” thought Lin Feng. Besides, Lin Feng found out that there were only Tian level cultivators there. Zun cultivators had probably ended up in another place.
“It’s so cold.” thought Lin Feng. Meng Ba and Xuan Yuan were surprised to see Lin Feng there. Xuan Yuan looked furious.
What was going on! How was that even possible?!
He had climbed up five groups of steps, had obtained a blue key and had said nobody could surpass him. After that, many people had joined him in Tiantai and they were all lower than him. However, in the end, Meng Ba appeared next to him.
If only one person could do the same as he had done, fine, no problem! But someone had done better than him!? That made him furious.
“You!” said Xuan Yuan. He remembered Lin Feng, the guy in the dragon palace with his beast. He had stolen treasures.
“Good to see you again!” said Lin Feng smiling at Xuan Yuan.
“I wouldn’t have thought that you’d manage to climb six groups of steps. In the dragon palace, you had only broken through to the second Tian Qi layer, but now you’ve broken through to the fourth Tian Qi layer, what treasures did you get there?” asked Xuan Yuan coldly. Had Lin Feng climbed only six groups of steps? And had he obtained treasures in the dragon palace which helped him become this strong?
“Who told you I climbed up six groups of steps?” said Lin Feng with a cold smile. “Concerning the treasures I obtained in the dragon palace, if I told you, you wouldn’t believe me.”
“Hmph! I don’t trust you anyways.” Xuan Yuan groaned coldly. “But it doesn’t matter. No matter what you obtained, I’ll steal your treasures for myself. You’re just a nobody in my eyes.”
Xuan Yuan then suddenly released ice-cold energies and stood up. He wanted to attack Lin Feng.
“SIT DOWN!” shouted an overwhelming voice at that moment. He raised his head and saw someone in the sky. He suddenly looked scared.
It was Hou Qing Lin! He had already humiliated Xuan Yuan back in Black Crow Village.
“You better not cause trouble here in Tiantai. And who do you think you are to insult other people?” said Hou Qing Lin.
“I am Xuan Yuan and I have imperial blood. Even if you don’t like me, there’s no need to insult me.” said Xuan Yuan proudly.
“I don’t care who your ancestors are or what your blood is like. All I know is that you climbed up five groups of steps and he climbed up nine. So who do you think you are to insult him?” said Hou Qing Lin coldly. Xuan Yuan looked dumbstruck.
“Nine groups of steps?” He was dazed. Not only him, everybody else. Someone had managed to climb up nine groups of steps?
“Maybe you enjoy humiliating people who have a lower cultivation level than yours? Well, in my eyes, you’re nothing. You’re much weaker than me.” said Hou Qing Lin.
