PMG Chapter 2002: Potential Peerless Cultivators
Zhuo Qing appeared in the sky and landed on the last step again. However, his face had paled, and his cheeks were bright red. A golden light appeared faintly around him. He rose up high into the air and sat down cross-legged. What had happened? He just had to take two more steps and he’d be on the Holy Way Stage!
“Zhuo Qing failed. He can’t go onto the Holy Way Stage, who can do it?” wondered someone, as everyone looked at Zhuo Qing, who was now seated cross-legged far above them.
Zhuo Qing murmured, “The Saint is sighing.”
“The Saint is sighing?” Everyone was startled as they looked at the Holy Way Stage. Had Zhuo Qing heard a Saint sigh?
Had he heard a Saint?
“He’s got a Diamond Indestructible King-Type Body, he’s got all the prerequisites to become a peerless cultivator someday. Unfortunately, he still needs a little bit more, but if he continues studying hard, he’ll definitely become a peerless cultivator someday,” said the woman of the Holy Spirit Dynasty slowly. People remained silent, staring at the Holy Way Stage solemnly and respectfully. A Saint had just sighed…
Someone emerged from the crowd and moved towards the Holy Way Stage with a whistling of Qi.
“Chu Chun Qiu!” Many eyes twinkled. Chu Chun Qiu, first cultivator on the Imperial Ranking List in the Holy City. He was the strongest emperor in the Holy City, a symbol and descendant of King Chu!
“Can Chu Chun Qiu do as well as Zhuo Qing?” was the question being whispered. Chu Chun Qiu jumped onto the first step. No problem at all.
Then, he jumped onto the second one, no problem either, he looked like a motionless mountain. His bones and blood were perfect.
He jumped onto the third step, which tested a cultivator’s intent. He raised his head and looked at the sky. The crowd had a hallucination, as if this guy was an ancient king.
Then, he jumped onto the fourth step, which tested soul strength. His soul shook, strength rising about him. He was still motionless.
“Fourth step, how strong!” The watchers were shaking. Chu Chun Qiu wasn’t struggling at all, it seemed so easy for him.
“Chu Chun Qiu is extremely strong. No wonder he’s the first emperor of the Holy City. I wonder whether he’ll manage to step onto the fifth step that easily or not. If he can, it means that he has the potential to become a peerless cultivator!” murmured someone, staring at Chu Chun Qiu.
Chu Chun Qiu walked over to the fifth step. Like Zhuo Qing, he heard someone sigh in his brain, and power came down on him, shaking everything. The earth and sky darkened, as if a god were about to appear.
Chu Chun Qiu jumped onto the fifth step, the air still groaning. Just like Zhuo Qing, two more steps forwards and he’d be on the Holy Way Stage!
“He’s stable. Chu Chun Qiu did as well as Zhuo Qing so far. He’s really talented,” someone sighed.
“How strong is he compared to Zhuo Qing?” asked someone.
“They’re talented and strong in different ways. It’s not because someone is talented that they are good at fighting. Chu Chun Qiu is not as strong as Zhuo Qing, who has a king-type body. But he has the potential to become a peerless cultivator,” replied someone else. Talent, strength, and fighting abilities were all different things.
When Chu Chun Qiu sensed that he was completely stable, he started walking again. His ancient emperor intent was intense, he was now surrounded by ancient emperors!
The earth and sky started shaking again.
Someone groaned with pain as if their organs were about to be cut open. Their soul was quivering.
“Chu Chun Qiu is making the sixth step, he’s already surpassed Zhuo Qing. The strength is even more explosive!” someone exclaimed. Chu Chun Qiu had already taken two steps forward on the fifth step. Zhuo Qing had been pushed backwards after the first step. Did Chu Chun Qiu have a greater chance to become a peerless cultivator than Zhuo Qing?
Zhuo Qing opened his eyes and looked down at Chu Chun Qiu. This guy had taken one step more than him! How impressive!
However, Zhuo Qing quickly closed his eyes again and returned to his meditation.
Last step, if he manages to get to the Holy Way Stage, it’ll mean that he has all the necessary characteristics to become a peerless cultivator someday. Chu Chun Qiu lifted his foot as he took a deep breath, it was his last step…
At that moment, an eerie silence fell over the crowd. Chu Chun Qiu moved his foot. He raised his head and smiled proudly. His hair and robe were fluttering in the wind.
There was a tolling sound, like a bell being struck.
Someone coughed blood and their face turned deathly pale. They had the sensation their organs were going to explode.
Lin Feng and his friends’ faces changed slightly. They had heard someone sigh. The pressure was much more intense than a moment before, Lin Feng and his friends had the sensation they were facing an ancient king. The pressure was incredible!
“Is that a Saint’s voice?” murmured Lin Feng at the sound. Chu Chun Qiu finished making his step, everybody staring at his back in astonishment.
“King-type body, I’m convinced that guy has a king-type body. He just hides it,” declared someone.
“Indeed, there’s king Qi. His kind of king Qi is more powerful than Zhuo Qing’s king Qi. Chu Chun Qiu has been hiding his king-type body the whole time,” said someone else. Everybody agreed and nodded. They were convinced that the first emperor of the Holy City had a king-type body.
At that moment, Chu Chun Qiu was facing the Holy Way Stage. If he took one more step forward, he’d be on the Holy Way Stage.
“Will there be a terrifying strength on the Holy Way Stage?” someone wondered softly. Chu Chun Qiu stopped for a few seconds, before taking a step forward. As he lifted his foot towards the stage, his hair and robe fluttered violently. Chu Chun Qiu’s Qi didn’t weaken, he looked like an ancient king. Finally, he put his lead foot on it, and then his second foot. He was the first person to step onto the Holy Way Stage!
Silence reigned. Surprisingly, someone had all the characteristics required to be a peerless cultivator, and that guy was a student at the Celestial Godly University, from the Chu Clan in the Vast Celestial Ancient City.
“A new peerless cultivator might appear in the Holy City in the future!” someone murmured. Chu Chun Qiu had the potential to become a peerless cultivator!
The Holy Spirit Dynasty spokeswoman shivered. Chu Chun Qiu was here for the Holy Spirit Dynasty, he had the potential to become a peerless cultivator.
“I’m happy for the Chu Clan!” said someone at that moment. Back in the days, King Chu was powerful and influential, but they had only read about him in books.
“Not necessarily. Back then, there was an insane peerless cultivator in the Chu Clan, he’s now in the Moon Palace.”
“And it’s not because you have the characteristics to become a peerless king that you actually are one. It just means you have potential. You have to practice cultivation properly and be lucky to become one too.”
“But at least, it proves that he’s extremely strong, and I don’t think I could compete with him in a battle.” People chattered, while Chu Chun Qiu was still on the stage. People who didn’t have king-type bodies could become kings and people who did have a king-type body didn’t necessarily become kings. Everybody’s path was different!
