PMG Chapter 1027: Who’s an Insect?
He glanced at the marks and realized that no matter what, marks, prints, drawings, paintings, they were all exceptional. Hou Qing Lin and his disciples were real geniuses.
“How incredible. Those marks are pleasing to the eye and to the mind.” sighed Lin Feng. Those marks were extraordinary. Lin Feng was excited and wanted to study them all.
After that, Lin Feng sat down. This time, he didn’t choose to study anything in particular. He released his celestial book spirit and chose to write down all the marks inside. New marks kept appearing in his book.
Empty space marks, reincarnation marks, ancient Buddhist marks, godly awareness related marks, Lin Feng was writing down everything. The emperors’ direct disciples were really incredible.
“My spirit is incredible.” thought Lin Feng. He was happy. He had never realized how powerful his book spirit was. He could use it to study demon seal stone strength, mysterious holy marks, etc. It was like the ultimate notebook.
Lin Feng was happy, he could write down all the marks in that room.
“All those marks contain the force of the Earth and sky, how powerful.” Lin Feng sighed while staring at all those marks.
However, voices interrupted Lin Feng. He was in a deep meditative state and hadn’t realized how fast time had passed. Another hour had already passed.
“Everybody was chatting and surprisingly, you were still meditating.” said Qiu Yue Xin smiling at him. Lin Feng didn’t know how long she had been next to him. He had forgotten about time. He hadn’t even sensed that Yang Zi Lan and the others were staring at him too.
“Haha, I was gone, indeed.” said Lin Feng smiling wryly. He thought he’d have time to study another spell more in depth.
“Luckily, nobody attacked you here.” thought Qiu Yue Xin. Yang Zi Lan and the others were looking at him coldly. Many people who didn’t even know him looked at him with hatred because he had managed to climb up the nine groups of steps. They didn’t want him to get the best palace.
At that moment, Hou Qing Lin came back.
“Two hours passed.” said Hou Qing Lin before adding, “I gave you two hours to study. Now, battles are going to start. You’ll only be able to use the techniques and skills you studied here to fight. You can’t use any other attacks, including your spirits.”
People were dumbfounded. Hou Qing Lin was testing people based on their understanding abilities.
“I was born with my spirit, it’s like my corporeal body, why can’t I use it?” said someone. A spirit was part of a cultivator’s body. Many rich and powerful cultivators relied mostly on their spirits.
“No matter how strong your spirit is, it is not always helpful. Think of the first part of the exam, on the stairs, your spirit was useless then. If you only rely on your spirit, you won’t be able to study new things. People who do that can never become genuinely strong, they will never progress. Besides, it’s a sign of laziness too. In Tiantai, we need polyvalent disciples, people who are interested in all aspects of cultivation. People who only use their spirit can’t be considered geniuses. In my eyes, they’re even worse than trash.” said Hou Qing Lin indifferently.
Many people lowered their heads when they heard that. Some people had always relied on their spirit and now they regretted it. That wasn’t beneficial to cultivators. Even worse, in Hou Qing Lin’s eyes, they were trash.
“Alright. Now, choose an opponent you despise, if you defeat them using the skill you learnt, they will be eliminated.” said Hou Qing Lin indifferently. Many people were caught off-guard. What? What about people who had a low cultivation level but were talented? Didn’t Hou Qing Lin care about them?
Many people looked for the weakest opponents and smiled. They just had to defeat weak people and eliminate them.
Yang Zi Lan and Yang Zi Ye walked towards Lin Feng and Qiu Yue Xin with cold smiles on their faces.
“It’s fate after all. If you’re weak, you’ll be eliminated.” said Yang Zi Lan to Lin Feng with a cold smile. Lin Feng was doomed. Imperial cultivation disciples were going to be selected according to their strength.
He was impatient to see how Lin Feng, a cultivator of the fourth Tian Qi layer, would fight against him.
“Did you all choose the opponents you despise the most?” asked Hou Qing Lin. People nodded. Those who were strong had large smiles on their faces and said, “Yes, we did.”
“Very good. Let’s go into an empty space illusion!” said Hou Qing Lin with a resplendent smile of his own. He shook his hands and bright lights appeared which surrounded the crowd.
People frowned. Their surroundings were changing and they were no longer in the palace.
It was snowing there. Some people were on snowy mountains, while others were on the ground, and some in the sky between the snowy mountains.
“We’re in another place now!” thought many people.
“Here, everybody will fight. Those who are defeated will appear outside the illusion, it will also mean that they’re eliminated and won’t become imperial cultivation disciples.” said Hou Qing Lin loudly. Everybody would die!
“Poor you, you’re dead already.” said Yang Zi Lan. Yang Zi Ye, Jiang Ning and the others were also not far from them. Lin Feng and Qiu Yue Xin were there too.
“I forgot to tell you something, here, everybody has the same cultivation level. You all have the strength of the first Tian Qi layer. These are perfect conditions to see who’s really strong!” said Hou Qing Lin. Lin Feng smiled in a resplendent way.
Yang Zi Lan and the others’ facial expressions changed drastically. They were scared now. In fair conditions, everybody had the same cultivation level!
Who would be crushed like an insect now?
