Chapter 1059: Teleportation
"Brother!" when Hou Qing Lin saw Mu Chen, he nodded and smiled. Mu Chen, another incredible cultivator was there with him. With him, nothing could happen.
Mu Chen smiled and looked at Emperor Tian Long's people, "Emperor Tian Long has been famous for a long time, how come his disciples are so incompetent? A bunch of Zun cultivators can't even kill my fellow disciple alone, what a disgrace!"
"Mu Chen, Hou Qing Lin came to our territory and is killing our people. You guys will pay for his sins with your life. Continue to insult us and you'll see. We'll teach you a thing or two." said the cultivator who was using the celestial hand attack before. Hou Qing Lin couldn't leave, otherwise Emperor Tian Long would be furious.
"You're wrong. You killed one of our disciples at the altar, we came here to enforce the rules. We didn't break any rule by coming here." said Mu Chen calmly. He then added, "Hou Qing Lin is a cultivator of the fifth Zun Qi layer though, if you, at the same cultivation level as him, were able to kill him, I wouldn't say anything. However, if you're weak, you're just a disgrace to your emperor."
Cultivators of the same level?
The Zun cultivators were smiling. Everybody knew that Hou Qing Lin was extremely strong. For a cultivator of the same cultivation level, defeating Hou Qing Lin would be extremely difficult.
He glanced at Mu Chen and said, "We'll kill him in any case."
Waves of energies rolled in the air and turned into beams of light moving towards Hou Qing Lin. He moved his hand again which then became gigantic. He wanted to kill Hou Qing Lin.
"It's not that easy to humiliate Emperor Shi and Emperor Yu's disciples." said Mu Chen when he saw the cultivator attack Hou Qing Lin. Lin Feng was suddenly surrounded by lights and Mu Chen disappeared.
Mu Chen had cast a protection spell on Lin Feng. He appeared in another place and Lin Feng had the impression he was hallucinating. Mu Chen appeared next to Hou Qing Lin. Both fellow disciples smiled at each other. This was going to be a good battle.
Reincarnation lights invaded the territory. Hou Qing Lin's sword attack looked just simple as before, most people couldn't understand just how terrifying that attack was.
A hole appeared in the atmosphere again and a few more holes appeared after that. It seemed like those holes contained the energies of life and death. It seemed like souls were emanating from those holes.
"Destroy!" shouted someone. A gigantic hand as big as a mountain appeared. People looked tiny next to that hand. The gigantic hand moved towards the reincarnation empty space and grabbed it, but it couldn't destroy it.
Oppressive energies surrounded Hou Qing Lin and Mu Chen, each attack was incredible and powerful.
Lin Feng was astonished. Only one of those attacks would be enough to kill him.
"There are millions of ways to fight." said Mu Chen as lights emerged from his body.
"Born in dust, back to dust." said Mu Chen indifferently. Everything was turning to dust on the path of Mu Chen's attack.
"What's that?" thought Lin Feng. He was speechless and amazed. Emperor Shi and Emperor Yu's disciples were terrifyingly strong.
"My fellow disciple attacked the old man who attacked our fellow disciples, now we're even. Let's not infuriate the emperors." said Mu Chen. He didn't want to create too much tension. Otherwise, if Emperor Tian Long got furious, a great war would start.
"Brother, let's go!" said Mu Chen to Hou Qing Lin while jumping towards Lin Feng and grabbing him.
"Where do you think you're going?" asked one of the strong cultivators who had started chasing them. Mu Chen and Hou Qing Lin had come and caused them trouble, now they wanted to leave? On top of that, they had insulted their Zun cultivators.
Mu Chen, Lin Feng and Hou Qing Lin continued running and arrived at a teleportation portal. Mu Chen opened his third eye and inspected the portal. At the same time, he moved his hands as if he was drawing something.
"What is he doing?" thought Lin Feng. Mu Chen was carving holy marks which contained an incredible illusion strength. The atmosphere was whistling as a hole appeared.
"Empty space portal, open!" said Mu Chen. A gate appeared and strength rolled out of it.
Lin Feng didn't have enough time to see exactly what Mu Chen was doing. Mu Chen carved more holy marks and Lin Feng's heart was racing. Mu Chen was opening an empty space portal.
"Get in!" said Mu Chen. Lin Feng and Hou Qing Lin went through the gate. Lin Feng was feeling strange, like he was in a dream. It was the same sensation as when he had used the altar. Mu Chen could use his own strength to create altars and teleport at a whim.
Many strong cultivators chased them. Their energies were powerful and they were furious, but the three disciples disappeared before they could catch them.
Lin Feng was astonished, he opened his mouth, but Hou Qing Lin talked first using telepathy, "Lin Feng, don't bother him right now. If you distracted him, it could be troublesome, he needs to concentrate."
Lin Feng nodded. Mu Chen remained silent, he was using his godly awareness to incredible degree. Lin Feng couldn't imagine how Mu Chen was doing that.
"Bzzz!" Lin Feng was shaking. He had the feeling a tower was weighing heavy on his back and then he sensed something under his feet.
He saw something in front of him, they were back in the Huang Sea underground, at the altars.
Lin Feng was astonished and the crowd was too. Those altars could only be used for one way teleportation. Had those three used their own strength to teleport?
Hou Qing Lin, Mu Chen and Lin Feng had used Emperor Tian Long's altar and now they were back? Emperor Tian Long's people would go insane.PMG Chapter 1060
Chapter 1060: Great Conflict
"How incredible. How did they come back?" thought the crowd astonished. Could Hou Qing Lin and Mu Chen already cast teleportation spells?
"There's blood. Seems like Hou Qing Lin killed the guy." thought the crowd when they saw the blood on his silver clothes. He had slaughtered someone.
Even though people didn't know what had happened in Emperor Tian Long's territory, Emperor Tian Long's people were probably going insane right now. Emperor Shi and Emperor Yu's disciples had gone to their territory and made it back.
Altar strength started flowing again.
"Emperor Tian Long's altar, some people are trying to make it back." thought the crowd. As expected, the situation was getting out of hand.
Hou Qing Lin groaned, turned around and dazzling lights appeared. He immediately jumped towards the altar, rumbling sounds spread in the air as the altar broke.
"How insane!" thought the crowd. Without an altar, it would be extremely difficult to make it back from the Huang Sea underground.
"Hou Qing Lin is insane." thought the crowd. He had slaughtered the protector of the altar and now he had destroyed their altar.
Hou Qing Lin looked at the old man who was at their own altar and frowned as if he wanted to say something.
"Tian Long's people won't forget that easily. If they look for us, we don't care, but I'm scared that they could use other evil methods to attack our people in here. It's our emperors' first recruitment process so we can't let anyone ruin it." said Mu Chen, reasoning.
Hou Qing Lin was was also worried about that. They didn't care about Tian Long's people, but they were worried about their candidates who were still there. Besides, everybody knew about their teachers' recruitment process. If Emperor Tian Long was furious, he would find a way to ruin their exam. Of course, Mu Chen and Hou Qing Lin didn't want that to happen.
"We can stay here." said Mu Chen indifferently. He then looked at Lin Feng and said, "Lin Feng, go back and inform our fellow disciple. He will know what to do."
"Alright!" Lin Feng nodded without hesitation. He jumped onto their altar again. All this was happening because of him. He hadn't thought the situation would get out of hand like that. Gu Xiao hadn't anticipated any of this either. Otherwise, would he have dared act that way?
The underground was incredibly vast and many people were still inside, hunting.
Somewhere in that forest, a cultivator of the sixth Tian Qi layer stopped at the top of a tree. Suddenly, people appeared not far away.
"Eh?" He looked in that direction and observed the powerful cultivators. They were all Zun cultivators. He had the feeling he was going to suffocate under their oppresive Qi.
"What's going on? Why are there Zun cultivators here?" one of the Zun cultivators was particularly strong.
Those people disappeared in the horizon, but their Qi lingerd and continued to oppress that person.
The cultivator remained on the tree and tried to calm down. He was wondering where those strong cultivators were from.
At that moment, another terrifying wave of strength rolled in the air, more people appeared at the same place again.
"There again." His heart started racing. What a coincidence. Two different groups arriving from the same place.
"Zun cultivators again!" his heart was pounding. Those people disappeared again.
"Something serious is going on!"
He didn't understand what was going on. Zun cultivators from two different groups arriving at the same place, something big was going on.
He wasn't the only one who was surprised, everyone else there was surprised. They were all thinking the same thing, something serious was going on!
Many people watched as the Zun cultivators disappear in the horizon. So many Zun cultivators!
Mu Chen and Hou Qing Lin were still at the altar, calmly waiting there. They didn't have to wait too long until Emperor Tian Long's people arrived.
"You're chasing us, wonderful, Tiantai is open now, do you want to follow us there?" said Mu Chen with an indifferent smile as if he hadn't sensed their cold energies.
"We heard candidates applying to become Emperor Shi and Emperor Yu's imperial cultivation disciples are here. They mustn't be weak! We'll have to go and see them for ourselves." said the leader of the group smiling coldly. They couldn't go to Tiantai, they weren't strong enough. Second, if they went there, a real war would start, they wouldn't be able to deal with the emperors then.
They wanted to make the two emperors and their people lose face.
Mu Chen smiled. Those people were threatening them, but they weren't too insane.
In the distance, more energies rolled in the air. People turned around and saw a group of people. Lin Feng was there too. Emperor Shi and Emperor Yu's people were coming.
Tian Long's people were not happy.
"Listen." said Mu Chen. Everybody looked at him.
"Everybody must clearly understand what happened today. In this place, disciples come he to become stronger by hunting other people. There are rules too, at the altars, it is forbidden to fight. If everybody violated that rule and attacked here, this underground training ground would be meaningless. The old man attacked our fellow disciple, even though he was a protector. We came to Tian Long, but now we left. Why chase us? If you want to fight, Tiantai's people will fight, but I fear the emperors won't appreciate that. Besides, I don't think the Huang Sea underground could handle our combined energies." said Mu Chen calmly. "All the emperors should be meeting soon. If you want to fight, there will be opportunities later. No need to threaten us now and say you will attack our disciples."PMG Chapter 1061
Chapter 1061: First Disciple
Mu Chen sounded calm and serene. If they wanted to fight, Tiantai wouldn't back down.
Even though he had just said a few sentences, he had exposed Tian Long's people's behavior. So many Zun cultivators had come to fight, and if they did, the Huang Sea underground wouldn't hold up. That place was artificial, if it broke, all the energies of the Huang Sea would flow in.
They threatened to kill Emperor Yu and Emperor Shi's disciples, but they weren't the only ones who had disciples. Mu Chen and Hou Qing Lin could also slaughter Tian Long's disciples. That would end in a great war.
"You killed our protector and came into our territory. How can you explain that?" Everybody remained silent until someone asked that. Everybody knew that Emperor Tian Long and the two emperors didn't like each other.
"Do you understand anything I just said? Your protector violated the rules and attacked one of our disciples, he had to die. What else do I have to explain?" said Mu Chen coldly. He sounded firm.
Tian Long's people looked annoyed as the leader said, "Alright, we'll remember that."
After that, he looked at the altar and grinded his teeth. Without the altar, how could they go back?
Tian Long's people moved towards Mu Chen and said coldly, "Move away!"
Mu Chen smiled in a resplendent way. Hou Qing Lin and Lin Feng moved aside too. Tian Long had to repair the altar. They didn't need long though.
At that moment, Tiantai's people approached Mu Chen and said, "Beware of Tian Long's people in the future. They won't easily forget today."
"Understood." everyone nodded.
"Let's go." said Mu Chen indifferently. Then, they left again.
The crowd was shivering, Mu Chen was incredible.
Mu Chen and the others made their way back to Tiantai.
"We'll meet again for the graduation ceremony. You can do whatever you want in the meantime." said Mu Chen.
"I'm going too." said the Sadhu with an indifferent smile too.
"Brother, stay here, I'm going to the other side." said Mu Chen to Hou Qing Lin. On one side, there were cultivators of the Tian Qi layer. On the other side were cultivators of the Zun Qi layer.
"Alright." said Hou Qing Lin nodding. Then, Mu Chen left. Only Hou Qing Lin and Lin Feng were left there. Qiu Yue Xin had joined them too.
At that moment, Hou Qing Lin smiled at them. "Congratulations brother and sister. You ranked first and second."
"Eh?" Lin Feng and Qiu Yue Xin glanced at each other, they were surprised, but smiled.
First and second. What a pleasant surprise.
"Brother, was the ranking made solely on the last exam?" asked Lin Feng.
Hou Qing Lin smiled and said, "We decided it that way and you guys came out first, so you ranked first and second. That's our final decision."
Lin Feng and Qiu Yue Xin smiled wryly.
"He likes us." thought Qiu Yue Xin looking at Lin Feng. Nobody could refute their decision anyway.
"Brother, don't you think other people will get angry because the ranking isn't based on strength?" asked Lin Feng.
"Tian level cultivators are still growing, no matter your level or power at this time, that's not important for Tian level cultivators. When you become Zun cultivators, strength becomes more important." Hou Qing Lin said smiling. "Besides, there are no fair rules in our world. In any case, you finished first at the first exam and now you came out first in this exam, you're good."
Lin Feng smiled. Indeed, Tian level were still growing up. In the eyes of emperors, no Tian level cultivator was strong anyways.
"You're second, you don't mind, right?" said Hou Qing Lin smiling at Qiu Yue Xin.
"I don't, of course." said Qiu Yue Xin with a resplendent smile. She admired Hou Qing Lin. He was only 50 years old according to rumors yet he was stronger than most of the cultivators of the Qiu Clan. Hou Qing Lin was famous.
"You're a couple, so if you want to be first and second, you can argue that amongst yourselves anyways." said Hou Qing Lin laughing. Qiu Yue Xin and Lin Feng were surprised. Hou Qing Lin also liked to joke!
"By the way, I wanted to ask something." said Lin Feng suddenly.
"I know what you're thinking." said Hou Qing Lin. He smiled and said, "Lin Feng, you always rely on yourself. You don't owe me or anyone else anything. There's an origin, but it's not because of you. When you break through to the Zun Qi layer, he will come and talk to you."
"An origin, but not because of me?" Lin Feng still didn't understand so he said, "I understand, I will continue to become stronger."
"Good." said Hou Qing Lin smiling. He shook his hand and medals appeared.
"Made with pure Qi." said Hou Qing Lin. Two medals appeared, one with Lin Feng's name and one with Qiu Yue Xin's name. They were officially imperial cultivation disciples.
"Alright, let's wait for the others." said Hou Qing Lin sitting down cross-legged on a cloud.
Lin Feng and Qiu Yue Xin said nothing. They talked and waited. One day later, the third person came out. Lin Feng recognized him, it was Lin Ruo Tian. He was surprised to see Lin Feng and Qiu Yue Xin already there. Too bad, he hadn't ranked first!PMG Chapter 1062
Chapter 1062: Where's Xuan Yuan?
"I used all my strength to kill seventy people, but Qiu Yue Xin and Lin Feng are there together so they must have killed 110 people, I don't know who helped whom." thought Lin Ruo Tian. In the past, he would have thought that Qiu Yue Xin would have helped Lin Feng, but then he had seen how strong Lin Feng was. He didn't dare underestimate him even though he had only broken through to the fourth Tian Qi layer.
With the strength of the fourth Tian Qi layer, he had managed to climb up all the groups of steps. He had also easily defeated Yang Zi Lan at the same cultivation level.
Lin Ruo Tian sat down.
"You're monstrously strong Lin Feng, where are you from?" asked Lin Ruo Tian as if he was trying befriend Lin Feng.
"I come from a country very, very far from Ba Huang Province. I can't compete with you, brother Ruo Tian." said Lin Feng smiling calmly.
"Very far…" whispered Lin Ruo Tian. He smiled and said, "Yang Zi Lan and his sister despised you, but they're really ridiculous. They think they're superior because of their social status, but in fact, they can't compete with you in the slightest."
Lin Feng smiled. He didn't know why Lin Ruo Tian was saying those things.
"Coming from a rich and prestigious family is a good thing though." said Lin Feng calmly.
"So what? You ranked first and on top of that, Miss Qiu likes you. You became an imperial cultivation disciple, so now, if you have another social status, you will be able to ask for her hand officially."
"Another social status?" whispered Lin Feng. He looked at Lin Ruo Tian and said, "I became an imperial cultivation disciple, that's a social status, what's the other social status I could get?"
"If you want, brother, you could become a member of the Lin Clan, we have the same name after all. You could ask for her hand using that social status too."
Lin Ruo Tian thought that because Lin Feng came from a very far country, he had come alone. There were many people like Lin Feng in Ba Huang Province so people needed a powerful background in walk around the Ba Huang Province. Otherwise, other people could bully them. He was offering protection for Lin Feng.
Lin Feng laughed having now understood. Lin Ruo Tian wanted Lin Feng to become a member of the Lin Clan.
He wanted to help Lin Feng, to become his brother. The Lin Clan would also protect him. Apart from their blood, he would be an authentic member of the clan.
"Thank you brother, but I prefer relying on myself." said Lin Feng smiling.
Lin Ruo Tian looked disappointed and said, "You are an ambitious person. Even if we don't become real brothers, I'm happy to be your friend."
"I'm happy too." said Lin Feng. Lin Ruo Tian was nice. He was strong too and came from a rich family. Lin Feng was happy to make new friends anyways.
Lin Ruo Tian smiled and nodded. He didn't say anything more.
"Sign it." said Hou Qing Lin giving a medal to Lin Ruo Tian. Lin Ruo Tian carved his name in the medal.
The fourth one arrived soon after. Lin Feng didn't recognize that person, but Lin Ruo Tian did. That was a disciple from a rich family from the south of Ba Huang.
People continued arriving while Lin Feng and Qiu Yue Xin were calmly sitting on the edge of Tiantai. They didn't mind other people's ranking. It had nothing to do with them. However, Lin Feng was wondering if Xuan Yuan would even make it back.
The Sadhu was quietly observing there too.
They were happy because if they had come back, it meant they were imperial cultivation disciples and they would all become brothers and sisters. In the future, they would have higher social statuses within their own clan.
The world of prestigious and rich families was complex and their members all wanted to be the best.
One month passed and in Tiantai, 78 people had made it out. Only three spots were left.
The crowd was excited. Many people had passed the exam on the flight of stairs so 81 people shouldn't be a problem.
"Has anyone seen Xuan Yuan?" asked someone at that moment. They realized that Xuan Yuan wasn't amongst the 78 people.
"Oh right, where is he?" said someone else. Where was he? He had always said he'd rank first.
"I saw him in the Huang Sea underground. Someone was chasing him. I don't know where he is now though!" said someone else. The crowd was surprised.
"What? Someone was chasing him? Are you sure?"
"Right, Xuan Yuan is very strong, who was chasing him?"
Many people started talking about him.
"I saw him with my own eyes. He was furious. He was bleeding and his hair was messy. Someone very strong was chasing him and laughing and talking about a Great Ape Emperor. He was scaring Xuan Yuan with his voice alone." said that person. Everybody was surprised. What a tragedy for Xuan Yuan. Someone was scaring Xuan Yuan with just his voice? The Great Ape Emperor?
"Three more people can qualify. If Xuan Yuan isn't part of them, then he will have to try again…" whispered someone. The crowd remained silent.
"You're wrong. Only one more person is left." said Lin Ruo Tian. One person?
"You forgot someone." said Lin Ruo Tian."
"Forgot someone?" the crowd was wondering what he meant. They then thought about someone who had defeated Xuan Yuan at the same cultivation level.
"Where's Lin Feng?"
"There, with Qiu Yue Xin." said Lin Ruo Tian pointing at them. They narrowed their eyes and, indeed, Lin Feng and Qiu Yue Xin were at the edge of Tiantai. There were already 80 of them!PMG Chapter 1063
Chapter 1063: Graduation Ceremony
"One more person!" whispered the crowd. They all looked excited, they wanted to see who would come out last.
"Bzzz!" someone came out and it wasn't Xuan Yuan.
The 81st wasn't Xuan Yuan!
Xuan Yuan wasn't going to become an imperial cultivation disciple?!
The crowd was astonished. He had always said he'd rank first and in the end, he wasn't going to become an imperial cultivation disciple?!
Hou Qing Lin appeared again with a medal and said, "Congratulations, you're the last one so you're qualified. Sign your name!"
"Pfew…" that person breathed deeply with relief and smiled. He was worried, but he had managed to become an imperial cultivation disciple. What a relief!
He was excited, but everyone else was astonished. Hou Qing Lin gave him the last medal, it meant that Xuan Yuan wasn't going to become an imperial cultivation disciple.
"Alright, the exam is finished. We need to wait for the Zun cultivators to finish their exam. They need a hundred days in total, so 40-50 more days. You can practice in Tiantai. Wait until the end and the second batch will also be determined." said Hou Qing Lin smiling.
The Tian level cultivators were done. They were so happy and proud to become imperial cultivation disciples. The two emperors were rising too and would soon be like the other emperors in Ba Huang Province.
Everybody nodded. Those who had managed to climb up the first group of steps during the first part of the exam would be part of the second batch. Everybody knew that already.
The crowd dispersed. They had a strange feeling, but a good one. Every palace was extraordinary. What a great opportunity this would be.
They had all earned their place so Hou Qing Lin was proud. They had all fought hard.
Lin Feng was still sitting on the edge of Tiantai, it was as if the rest of the world had nothing to do with him. He couldn't waste his time.
Lin Feng needed to become stronger. He had only broken through to the fourth Tian Qi layer. Being an imperial cultivation disciple wasn't the most important thing anymore. All of them wanted to become stronger.
It was sunny in Tiantai and the air was fresh. It was pleasant afternoon.
Lin Feng was sitting cross-legged and lights were flowing around him. He was bathing in extraordinary flames which looked like many small suns.
It was as if he was the sun. Seven stars appeared.
The Sadhu opened his eyes and looked at Lin Feng with a resplendent smile. Sun skill. Lin Feng surprisingly had good skills. He was convinced Lin Feng would quickly become strong. His pure Qi was good and he could swallow the power of the sun. As Lin Feng became stronger, his pure sun Qi became even more distinct.
At that moment, golden flames appeared. They didn't look real though.
"Is that an illusion created by his godly awareness?" the Sadhu was surprised at that moment. There were pieces of godly awareness in those flames.
"It looks like the Eternal Awareness skill." the Sadhu was surprised. Lin Feng's skill looked like a skill Mu Chen used. He could open the Earth and sky using it and everything would turn to dust in its path. It could even break people's godly awareness.
At that moment, it looked like Lin Feng was practicing such a skill. It was far from being as complete and powerful as when Mu Chen's, but it already had a form.
If the Sadhu was right, it meant that Lin Feng could use a broken soul technique to break his soul into several pieces. Lin Feng had seen Mu Chen skill which made everything reduced back to dust in Tian Long's territory, so he felt motivated.
"What a great feeling." thought Lin Feng. In the past, he used to study the force of the Earth and the sky, now he could sense it perfectly. He could have his godly awareness fuse together with the Earth and sky even. No wonder Mu Chen's skill was so powerful.
Lin Feng really wanted to do the same. He was pleasantly surprised because he had something to study that he liked.
He was still too weak though, he still needed time.
"Little boy, I can't wait to see you become stronger!" thought the Sadhu smiling. Lin Feng was young, but he had great natural abilities. He would become a beast in the future.
Time passed and the time came for the crowd to gather and receive their certificates. From that day on, they would be Emperor Shi and Emperor Yu imperial cultivation disciples.
At that moment, there were also many people at the foot of Tiantai. Many people in the crowd, had participated to the exam but had failed. Now they still wanted to see the ones who had passed the exam. Who were they and what was their rank?
At that moment, energies rolled in the air like clouds and steps appeared, one after the other. Those golden stairs were incredible.
"A flight of stairs."
"The time has come!"
Many people were excited. Finally, the new imperial cultivation disciples would receive their certificates. It was the graduation ceremony.
Yang Zi Lan and Yang Zi Ye were there too. They had been eliminated by Lin Feng. Back then, they had had the opportunity to become imperial cultivation disciples of the second batch, but they had given up and left. They thought being imperial cultivation disciples from the second batch was too shameful.
Besides, Xuan Yuan had probably ranked first and he would marry Yang Zi Ye, so that would be enough of an honor.PMG Chapter 1064
Chapter 1064: Xuan Yuan's Tragedy
The Yang Clan, the Qiu Clan, the Lin Clan, the Meng Clan, and many other powerful and influential groups were there. Many of their disciples had participated and they were all excited to see how well they had performed.
There were lights everywhere. Tiantai wouldn't be closed and isolated anymore. It would become a new and genuine group of influence in Ba Huang Province.
People didn't know how long Emperor Shi and Emperor Yu had been emperors, but it had been at most a hundred years. Everybody believed they were relatively new emperors, otherwise they would have had imperial cultivation disciples much earlier.
Besides, Emperor Shi and Emperor Yu were very secretive. Very few people had seen them personally. People generally only knew that there was a place called Tiantai in Tianjing City and that two emperors lived there, but the place used to be closed.
Now, it was the graduation ceremony of their new imperial cultivation disciples. Would they show up in person?
"They are new emperors. They are even stronger than Emperor Tian Long who has been an emperor for a long time now. I wonder if we will see them today." thought some people raising their heads.
At that moment, a silhouette appeared on the flight of stairs. It was starting, finally!
"Are those the imperial cultivation disciples from the first batch?" thought the crowd. They were inspecting those people. There was no oppressive strength on the flight of stairs anymore, but they all had lowered their heads, they looked strange. The crowd frowned.
That can't. They couldn't be the winners.
"Those people are probably those who failed the exam!" thought the crowd. The group of people walked down the stairs and joined the crowd. Those were the people who had been eliminated. How humiliating. They could only lower their heads and look elsewhere, shamefully.
Those people were those who had been eliminated, indeed.
"Look at those behind them, they must be the real winners!" thought the crowd when they saw another group of people appear. There were hundreds of people. They had an imposing appearance and they looked like heroes. However, in that group, there were also some people who were lowering their heads.
"They are too high, I can't see them clearly." thought the crowd. The flight of stairs was too high. They couldn't see clearly. They could only see silhouettes. They couldn't wait.
Very quickly, a cloud appeared, those people jumped onto that cloud and they appeared in front of the crowd.
"Eh? Where's Ruo Tian?" thought the members of the Lin Clan.
"There's something wrong, there are Zun cultivators and Tian level cultivators in that group, they shouldn't be mixed like that." many people didn't understand.
At that moment, in the air, the Sadhu appeared on a cloud and flew in front of the crowd. He said, smiling, "From today, Emperor Shi and Emperor Yu have 360 imperial cultivation disciples, congratulations!"
The Sadhu waved and 360 certificates appeared. He said, "Sign your certificates!"
"They all had the same certificate. There was something wrong." thought some people.
"Hey, where is Xuan Yuan? I remember he was the first one to pass the first exam." thought some people. 360 people signed their certificates. How glorious! They were new imperial cultivation disciples.
After signing their certificates, they separated into two groups. Left and right. Then, those two groups separated again into groups of 81 people.
"Lin Ruo Tian!"
"Meng Ba, he's the one who managed to climb five groups of steps, like Xuan Yuan!"
"Look, Lin Feng and Qiu Yue Xin are together!" the crowd was observing those people. They remembered Lin Feng who had managed to climb the entire nine groups of steps."
"81 people, where are Yang Zi Lan and Yang Zi Ye?"
"Right, and what about Xuan Yuan?"
"I see. There are 162 authentic imperial cultivation disciples, divided into Tian level and Zun level ones. The others are part of the second batch. They were probably chosen from the ones who had managed to climb up the first group of steps!"
Many people understood at that moment.
But Yang Zi Lan and Xuan Yuan weren't there. Many people couldn't figure out what had happened.
The 162 people of the first batch looked delighted. They were all smiling in a resplendent way.
"Yue Xin is there, as expected." thought one middle-aged men smiling. Qiu Hao was next to him.
"She is still with that boy. She even attacked her family because of him. That boy will be a tragedy for us." said Qiu Hao coldly. He wasn't happy for her. She had attacked her family because of Lin Feng and now, Lin Feng was still alive. He was furious when Lin Feng managed to climb up the nine groups of steps.
"That boy isn't that bad, otherwise he wouldn't be with Yue Xin in the first batch of imperial cultivation disciples." said the middle-aged man indifferently to Qiu Hao.
"Hmph, not all imperial cultivation disciples are that strong." said Qiu Hao coldly.
"Shut up. Yue Xin became an imperial cultivation disciple, this a good day." shouted two old men next to them.
"Congratulations to all the new imperial cultivation disciples of the first batch. Get ready to sign your certificates!" said the Sadhu smiling. He shook his hand and 81 certificates with the names of the winners appeared.
"Lin Ruo Tian, Qiu Yue Xin, Meng Ba, Lin Feng… However, Yang Zi Lan had been eliminated. What about Xuan Yuan?" the crowd was surprised. They were now sure that Xuan Yuan's name wasn't there.
The Yang Clan was astonished and staring at the list. Yang Zi Lan and his sister had been eliminated, of course they were wearing cloaks with hoods so they wouldn't be seen. They felt too ashamed. They had waited because they wanted to see Xuan Yuan, but now, they couldn't see his name on the list.
"Lin Feng!" shouted a voice in the distance.
"You'll die, Lin Feng!" shouted that person furiously. His Qi was powerful. He looked cruel, hideous and furious.
"Is that Xuan Yuan?"
What had happened to Xuan Yuan?
