Chapter 1350: Corrosive Ice Qi
"People of different strengths sense the energies differently." thought Lin Feng. On that fourth floor, everyone had different cultivation levels. He had only broken through to the first Zun Qi layer and Yi Ren Lei to the second, while some people had broken through to the third Zun Qi layer. Seemingly regardless of cultivation level, there were some who were losing to the elements.
"That's a determination test!" thought Yi Ren Lei.
"My love, we'll win here!" said Lin Feng smiling. Yi Ren Lei nodded and closed her eyes again. She remained in Lin Feng's arms and continued studying the cold energy.
Lin Feng didn't study the energy, instead, he blocked it with some demonic intent.
Demonic-curses were terrifying, just like the true words of the Devil and the Buddha. If he managed to make his energies fuse together in a perfect way, for example, level three demonic, cursing, and soundwave energies, then he would be able to influence other people and destroy their determination. (editor's note: I don't know what to think about sound-wave energies. It's the first time I've heard of it at least.)
The similarities between demonic and cursing energies made it easier to fuse them together. Plus, Lin Feng practiced some demonic skills which involved using his voice, so he could also try to use soundwave abstruse energies.
"If I could control soundwave abstruse energies, my attacks would be terrifying." thought Lin Feng.
Lin Feng and Yi Ren Lei were already covered by layers of ice, though, everybody else was in the same boat. Some people couldn't stand it anymore and froze to death.
But there were some who were extraordinary, such as the young man who had talked to Lin Feng. Each time he inhaled and exhaled, ice Qi condensed in the air and then he swallowed it again. It seemed like he could use the ice Qi to improve himself.
The girl in black clothes also seemed unaffected.
Apart from them, there was also a young man in white clothes. The falling snowflakes seemed to be scared of him, because anytime they came close to him, they subtly moved away.
"No…" shouted someone else freezing to death.
"Envoy!" shouted that person. An old man appeared and smiled at him.
"Envoy, why should I die here for no reason!" said that cultivator, desperately condensing more and more blood strength.
"You're not going to die, you're just freezing-solid. When the shrine closes, you'll get expelled from here." said the old man. Then, that cultivator completely froze over.
The envoy continued, "Why were you able to resist a second ago and then I just said a few words and you forgot your purpose for coming here. You were not determined. Besides, do you think you really won't die if you freeze in here? Children, you still have a long way to go."
Then, the envoy disappeared.
Many people contemplated what the old man said..
Were they really not going to die? Nobody could be sure.
"Lin Feng!" said Yi Ren Lei smiling. She was firmly hugging Lin Feng.
"Lin Feng, come inside my desire illusion!" said Yi Ren Lei. Then, Lin Feng allowed himself to fall into Yi Ren Lei's illusion. It was a beautiful world with trees, flowers and birds. It wasn't cold at all. Yi Ren Lei was standing in front of him, looking stunning as usual.
"My love, let's make love using only our thoughts!" said Yi Ren Lei, caressing Lin Feng everywhere. He groaned and instantly forgot about everything else.
Not far from Lin Feng, the two evil looking young man opened their eyes and glanced at each other.
"We're going to die!" said one of them.
"We need to fight or find a girl to get warm." said the other one, glancing at the crowd in an evil way. There weren't many women left, just four. Even though the one in black clothes looked stunning, they wouldn't dare touch her. The two others had broken through to the third Zun Qi layer, leaving Yi Ren Lei who Lin Feng was already wrapped around.
They glanced at each other, with the same idea. Yi Ren Lei was the weakest one, but the most beautiful one.
"Imagine if they were making love in an illusion! Go and capture her!" the two of them talked using telepathy. Some of the others were also thinking along similar lines, that fighting could keep them warm. But, they didn't choose Lin Feng.
"Boom!" terrifying Qi began to clash as those people started fighting.
The two cultivators of the second Zun Qi layer were also nearing Lin Feng and Yi Ren Lei.
"Kill the guy first!" said one of them. They immediately threw themselves at them and attacked. Lin Feng and Yi Ren Lei immediately turned pale, ice digging deep into their bones.
"Boom!" Lin Feng released demonic Qi and suddenly opened his eyes.
"Die!" Lin Feng released demonic intent, surprising the cultivator. Lin Feng moved his hand and released sword energies, then blood splashed. That person was instantly cut into two. At the same time, Yi Ren Lei attacked the other one using her level six ice and snow abstruse energies. That person shivered before turning into an ice-statue.
"Cough!" Yi Ren Lei coughed, her face turning pale.
While they were making love in the illusion, they had been interrupted. The ice sunk in deep, hurting her and her godly awareness!
PMG Chapter 1351
Chapter 1351: Fifth Floor
"Are you alright?" Lin Feng's silhouette flickered as he ran towards Yi Ren Lei.
"I'm so cold!" said Yi Ren Lei, forcing a smiling. She didn't want Lin Feng to worry, but he still felt worried. Yi Ren Lei's lips were frozen.
"Are you alright? I'm going to have to kill some people!" said Lin Feng, smiling at Yi Ren Lei. He hugged her tightly and then looked at the second guy who had attacked them. He had broken the ice by now. However, he felt deathly-cold now, especially when he saw Lin Feng's eyes.
"Excuse me, It seems that I bothered you." said that person smiling and running backwards. His friend wasn't weak, but he had immediately been cut in two.
Lin Feng jumped forwards and released demonic intent. He glared at him and said, "Look at me!" That person couldn't resist looking at Lin Feng's eyes.
"Argh…" Lin Feng shouted like a demon. He fused cursing and demonic energies together and his opponent's head started shaking violently. Even though he was stronger than Lin Feng in terms of level, his skills, abstruse energies, and special powers weren't as good as Lin Feng's.
"Boom!" Lin Feng arrived in front of him and punched his head, exploding it into a thousand pieces.
Lin Feng looked at Yi Ren Lei, she was still smiling as if she didn't mind the ice energies.
Lin Feng knew that Yi Ren Lei was extremely determined and that if she wasn't injured, the ice energies couldn't do anything to them.
"Boom!" Lin Feng released fire abstruse energies and wrapped Yi Ren Lei inside them. He also released fire energies around himself, but once he did that, the cold energies around him started chilling his body even more, as if it was intensifying.
He sat down again, his black hair became white.
"My love, don't worry about me, I can solve the problem myself." She couldn't deny the fire abstruse energies around her made her feel a bit better.
"Practice cultivation, don't worry." said Lin Feng.
Yi Ren Lei hugged Lin Feng tightly and kissed him on the lips with her eyes closed.
"Even with your eyes closed, you're still a devil!" said Lin Feng smiling. Then, he released demonic energies again to counter the ice energies.
The demon abstruse energies made Lin Feng's eyes look even darker.
The atmosphere became calm and a long time passed. Yi Ren Lei seemed to have fallen asleep in Lin Feng's arms, as if the outside world didn't have anything to do with her.
However, Lin Feng looked like an ice-statue.
Even if he looked like a statue, his eyes were still pitch-black, looking both aggressive and brutal.
After a long time, Yi Ren Lei opened her eyes and looked at Lin Feng, "My love, you're so silly!" said Yi Ren Lei, stretching her hand and touching Lin Feng's face. However, at that moment, the ice cracked away as demonic and fire energies dashed to the skies.
"Kacha!" the ice continued cracking as Lin Feng moved and raised his head. He looked at the ceiling with his pitch-black eyes. A thread of demonic intent came out of his eyes and a pitch-black light pierced the air.
"Break!" shouted Lin Feng. The ice exploded and Lin Feng's body appeared. He was still holding Yi Ren Lei in his arms.
"Demon abstruse energies, level three. I think I'll break through to the second Zun Qi layer very soon." thought Lin Feng. He had broken through to the first Zun Qi layer for only a few months now, and making love with Yi Ren Lei helped him. Now, the potentially deadly challenge of the fourth floor had helped him become even stronger. He couldn't wait to see what the other tests of the Ice and Snow Shrine would be.
"Who's that guy? He's so strong!" Lin Feng was astonished. He was looking at the guy who had asked him questions before. In front of him were a few corpses, making it look like he had killed them and that they had frozen after.
He was like Lin Feng, he had just broken through to the first Zun Qi layer, so many people chose to fight him. But they all lost.
"Kacha, boom boom boom…" mountains of ice were breaking around them.
Lin Feng and Yi Ren Lei raised their heads and saw a gigantic piece of ice falling down on them. Lin Feng stretched out his hand, releasing demonic Qi, and broke it. However, more pieces of ice fell, but Lin Feng destroying them all.
"Boom…" Lin Feng saw a statue not that far in front of him. A block of ice fell onto it and they both exploded. Even if they didn't die by freezing there, if a piece of ice fell on top of them and crushed them, then they'd still died.
Maybe the envoy hadn't lied, if that guy hadn't been crushed by the ice block, he would have made it out.
Lin Feng glanced at the other young man, his mouth was open while swallowing a piece of ice. He could even eat the larger blocks of ice which were a few hundred meters wide.
Snow continued falling, but they had the feeling they were rising up. The mountain range under their feet slowly disappeared and suddenly, fire appeared. It was a scorching fire, the complete opposite of what they had just experienced.
That was the fifth floor!
PMG Chapter 1352
Chapter 1352: Thinking about Life
Other may have been concerned, but Lin Feng was excited. That was a pure kind of fire.
"Come out!" A light emerged from Lin Feng's hand and his Tian Ji sword crossed the fire world.
His Tian Ji Sword had souls, it could swallow fire energies and condense them to create a soul.
"In this Ice and Snow Shrine, there seem to be different worlds with different tests. If you fail the tests, you die,but if you succeed, you'll become stronger." said Yi Ren Lei, smiling at Lin Feng.
If Lin Feng used his full strength, he could even make cultivators of the fifth Zun Qi layer go insane.
"There are nine floors in the Ice and Snow Shrine and we're on the fifth floor. Does that mean we have to go up floor by floor? What will we find on the next floors?" whispered Lin Feng. The test on the previous floor was about determination, what did the test of the fifth floor consist of?
"Let's sit and see." Then, both Lin Feng and Yi Ren Lei sat down, surrounded by fire.
Most of the people there were ice cultivators, so the previous floor hadn't surprised them. However, that floor possessed a powerful fire which wasn't suitable for them.
Lin Feng began using his cosmos-burning sun technique. Fire surrounded his body as he absorbed the fire Qi. The cosmos-burning sun technique was a Tian level scripture, so even though it wasn't as strong as ancient scriptures, it was still quite powerful.
However, as Lin Feng absorbed fire, he felt cold and sensed ice-cold energies surrounding him. He stopped and opened his eyes, looking at Yi Ren Lei.
"Did you sense that too?" asked Yi Ren Lei. Lin Feng stretched out his hand and touched her hand, she was sweating, but she felt cold.
"An ice world can also become a fire world, what does that mean?" whispered Lin Feng.
"Bzzz!" at that moment, a dazzling light lit the sky. Everybody raised their heads, but they couldn't see through the light.
"That's a one-paged book!" thought Lin Feng. There was a mysterious Qi flowing throughout the book and it contained marks and words. It looked a little like the three lives scriptures and the Ten Thousand Things of Creation Scriptures.
"That's moon and sun dual Qi!" thought Lin Feng. Moon and sun energies were flowing throughout the book, changing and flashing. The fire in the book turned into ice, and then the ice turned to fire again.
Fire, ice, impermanence, the four seasons.
"The moon exists because of the sun and vice versa, water exists because of the fire and vice versa." thought Lin Feng. Was that the lesson of the fifth floor?
The moon and the sun were interdependent, the same applied to fire and ice. Ice could burn like fire.
The crowd looked at the book, but they were smart, none of them tried to steal it. It was probably difficult to obtain, and even if they took it, they might burn to death anyways.
"Let's see what kind of ancient scripture that is." said someone rising up. He looked at the book, but it seemed to contain ordinary scriptures, so he wasn't that interested. He came from a rich clan who had their own ancient scriptures.
A gigantic hand made of ice moved towards the book, however, as soon as it touched the book, that person was propelled backwards. The gigantic hand broke apart and the cultivator's very hand burnt. It was half burnt, half frozen, actually.
"Ah…" he gave a horrible shriek and shook his hand violently, trying to get rid of the pain.
Crackling sound ensued as he used his blood strength to heal, but it didn't work. Even though Zun cultivators could use their blood to heal and could even grow new body parts again, if the injuries were too serious, they couldn't completely heal.
After that person lost his arm, the fire continued to attack him, piercing him through his wound.
"No need to pay attention to that book right now. You need to understand both fire and ice Qi to take it." said Lin Feng to Yi Ren Lei using telepathy.
Yi Ren Lei nodded. She was wondering how to resist those energies herself.
Lin Feng and Yi Ren Lei sat down and looked at the fire and ice energies in the air. A light appeared in Lin Feng's head.
He thought about another kind of abstruse energy, life abstruse energy!
Life abstruse energy was a special kind of abstruse energy, everybody relied on it just to live.
The moon and the sun, fire and ice were interconnected, but what about life?
The opposite of life was death.
Human beings had limits because their vitality slowly faded. Death slowly replaced life along a person's life.
"My life energy can't be used to save people, or extend my life expectancy, or stay young forever. In the cultivation world, there is no complete and independent abstruse energy." thought Lin Feng. His eyes slowly turned pitch-black again. He was pensive.
PMG Chapter 1353
Chapter 1353: On the Sixth floor
"Desolate!" Lin Feng closed his eyes and his celestial book spirit appeared inside his body. The entire demon territory appeared in his body. Desolate abstruse energies rose up in the air.
"My desolate strength is a pure form of death Qi. Ruo Xie learned how to use decaying abstruse energies through desolate strength." thought Lin Feng. Desolate strength could corrode things because it contained death QI. It was a pure destructive strength which at a certain level, could easily destroy cultivators at the same cultivation level.
For example, if his desolate abstruse energy was level three, he could easily destroy a cultivator of the third Zun Qi layer. If he used another kind of abstruse energy in a similar way, it didn't necessarily mean he could kill cultivators at the same level.
"Death, death…" whispered Lin Feng. He was calmly thinking about life and death. He released cursing abstruse energies. Inside the cursing strength, there was a powerful death energy. He could easily kill people with such energies, but Lin Feng wasn't strong enough to do that yet.
"Life and death abstruse energies are interconnected. If I could use life abstruse energies to destroy life, then I could kill. Cursing energies can also kill." Lin Feng was trying to connect these things: life, cursing and desolate abstruse energies, to fuse them together and create a spell. He could also add demonic abstruse energies, then his attack would be even more terrifying.
In the past, Lin Feng randomly condensed abstruse energies together, but now that he knew so many kinds of abstruse energies, he had to think and determine which fusions were the best.
Lin Feng was excited, so excited that he almost forgot about the fire world.
The ice and fire energies were becoming even scarier.
On the fourth floor, many of them had already been eliminated. Those who had managed to go from the fourth to the fifth floor could be considered strong. However, some of them were starting to go insane on the fifth floor.
But some people always amazed everyone else. Like the girl in black clothes, she was sitting there and she wasn't sweating at all. There was also the mysterious young man who didn't seemed affected at all.
"No…" finally, someone gave a horrible shriek. That person suddenly burned alive.
After a short time, a second horrible shriek appeared as another person burned alive.
"Fire, ice, sun, moon, hot, cold, in certain physical states and conditions, those things could be the same thing." after a long time, maybe a day, Lin Feng finally smiled as if he had realized something.
He shook his hand and released fire energies, then, it became ice-cold. His sun-fire turned into moon-coldness.
Lin Feng opened his eyes, they were pitch-black and dazzling as always. He didn't study fire energies, he focused on the other kinds of abstruse energies. Sometimes, he tried to make the ice corrode his body to see what it did precisely. In that time, he began to understand the impermanence of life.
"Bzzz!" lights descended from the sky. Those lights were filled with both moon and sun energies at the same time. They turned into a light and penetrated into Lin Feng's body. The one-paged book suddenly started shaking as it shined and moved towards Lin Feng's third eye, penetrating into his brain.
The test of the fifth floor was actually quite simple, it was supposed to make cultivators study the connections between sun and moon energies. The first one to understand them would get the book. But who could understand things faster than Lin Feng?
"Bzzz!" A powerful Qi rose in the air. The beautiful girl in black clothes shook her hand and released ice and fire energies. She also understood the fire and ice energies, but only a few seconds after Lin Feng had, otherwise she would have obtained the book.
"Will she try and steal the book?" thought the crowd. She had broken through to the fourth Zun Qi layer, so she was the strongest person in the room. She had immediately gone to the fourth floor at the beginning which meant she could defeat cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer.
As expected, she glared at Lin Feng angrily.
"Bzzz!" Lin Feng's eyes looked dazzling and ice-cold. His vision was much more powerful than that girl's as he stared back at her. Finally, her Qi became calm, as if she didn't want to attack.
At the same time, the fire became chaotic and invaded the entire room. People couldn't see each other clearly anymore.
"Yi Ren!" shouted Lin Feng.
"I'm here!" Yi Ren Lei grabbed Lin Feng's arm. They were close to each other, but they couldn't see each other. They knew they were going to the next floor.
After a bit, the crowd was finally able to see again. Those who were still alive found that they were on the sixth floor.
Finally, it wasn't a desolate landscape anymore. Instead, they were in a luxuriant palace. Yi Ren Lei and Lin Feng were amazed though because they realized that there were even more people than before. There must have been over 500 people there.
"You're still alive!" said someone, it was the sixth prince!
There were also many other people Yi Ren Lei knew. Those people must have taken a different road to get there.
"Lin Feng, the people from the other shrines are the same as us. Their first floor was different, but in the end, we all made it to the same place." said Yi Ren Lei, glancing around at the crowd. Lin Feng nodded, thinking the same thing.
"There are some terrifying people here." Lin Feng said while glancing at the crowd. Some people attracted his attention more than others. There were also some people who had immediately made it to to the sixth floor, unlike those who had been to the fourth and to the fifth.
Those who had immediately teleported to the sixth floor had defeated an opponent who was five cultivation levels stronger than them. Were there people on the seventh and eighth floor too?
And what about the ninth floor? Lin Feng was wondering if a cultivator of the first Zun Qi layer could defeat cultivators of the ninth Zun Qi layer.
PMG Chapter 1354
Chapter 1354: Massacre
Even more people were arriving in that hall. Three more batches of people appeared, now making around six hundred people.
The sixth prince looked at Lin Feng and Yi Ren Lei in a disdainful way, thinking about how he could kill them.
"Boom boom boom!" the palace started shaking violently. A gigantic statue landed a thousand meters away from them.
"That's the statue of the Ice and Snow Goddess!" thought some people. She was holding a scepter and there was a door with an entrance on the statue.
Someone appeared in front of the Ice and Snow Goddess, another envoy.
"Welcome to the entrance of the shrine." said the envoy, smiling indifferently.
"You must go through the Ice and Snow Goddess' door to see if you are worthy of bathing in her divine lights. Those who are on the seventh floor and above could immediately bathe in her lights and already received her blessings. If you go through that door, you'll be able to see them as well." explained the envoy.
What was the seventh floor? It meant that some cultivators of the first Zun Qi layer could defeat cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer. The eighth floor meant that a cultivator of the first Zun Qi layer could defeat a cultivator of the eighth Zun Qi layer. Did such people exist?
"What's this place? Who are those people?" thought Lin Feng. In the Ba Huang Province, he had seen many geniuses. Inside here, he realized that there were many more people who were stronger than him, but where were they from?
"Of course, I have some bad news too. The number of people who can bathe in the goddess' lights is limited. Only nine of you will be selected." said the envoy, smiling.
Many people were panicking. They knew that they were a lot weaker than some of the people there.
"Will people be eliminated through battles? How cruel would that be. So many incredible geniuses would die." thought some of the weaker cultivators in the crowd.
"I have already chosen those nine people!" said the envoy. People were astonished again, what was going on? He had already chosen nine people?! Did that mean those who weren't chosen wouldn't have the chance to see the seventh floor?!
"Of course, you managed to make it here which means you are all outstanding young people. I don't want you to lose your life easily, but I also don't want you to have no chance at all. You can make your own decisions." said the envoy slowly.
Then, a light illuminated someone in the crowd. He looked tall and sturdy, his biceps stood out from the rest of his body. It was the young man with whom Lin Feng had talked to. He was the first person the envoy had chosen.
"You, come out." said the envoy. The young man walked forwards and looked at the envoy.
The envoy shook his hand and a path between the young man and the statue of the goddess appeared. Then, he shook his hand again and a horizontal line appeared a thousand meters behind him.
"Everyone stand behind the line!" said the envoy. The crowd formed behind the line. Only the young man was left, standing on the path leading to the door.
"What's the opportunity?"
"Now, I will choose ten people. You all will try to kill him, preventing him from going inside. If you lose, he'll go through the door. That's pretty obvious. If one of you manages to kill him though, the one who kills him will replace him and be one of the nine selected candidates." said the envoy.
"When I pick you, you can walk ahead. Only ten people, but if you break the rules, I'll kill you." said the envoy calmly. Nobody doubted that. Inside the shrine, he was the boss. Everybody moved back and waited. If someone was too slow, they might run ahead when ten people had already made it, which would mean they violated the rules.
"Start!" shouted the envoy. Instantly, a few people ran as fast as they could. Thirty-forty people moved at the same time, but then they remembered what the envoy said, and decided to move back.
"The strongest people didn't move!" thought Lin Feng, glancing around. The girl in black clothes didn't move. Maybe they were confident that they were going to be selected by the envoy personally.
"Attack!" said the envoy. In a flash, Qi rose to the skies. All the cultivators were well prepared.
"Argh…" someone shouted furiously. Their souls shook, their blood boiled.. That was a dragon chant.
"Lalala…" Lin Feng's blood was boiling, as if a dragon was getting furious. The tall and sturdy young man punched the air in front of him. Then, shadow-like fists appeared everywhere around him.
"Slash, slash, slash…" a few people were immediately destroyed. He killed six of the ten people in the blink of an eye.
The nine people the Envoy had chosen were probably all extraordinary.
"That guy could have gone straight to the fifth or sixth floor, but he chose the fourth floor." thought Lin Feng. Then, two more people died.
"Die!" the faces of the last two opponents were red. They couldn't use holy weapons in there, instead, they had to rely on themselves, blood strength, spirit, and skills. One cultivator with ice and snow energies attacked the tall and sturdy young man, his energies surrounded him.
"Die!" the tall and sturdy young man jumped forwards and punched the air in the direction of his opponents again. The one in front of him exploded, leaving the cultivator with ice and snow energies.
"Argh…" the tall and sturdy young man suddenly turned into a gigantic ice dragon, hundreds of meters long.
"Roar!" the gigantic ice dragon immediately swallowed his opponent's spirit and landed in front of the Ice and Snow Goddess. He turned back into a human and glanced at the crowd in a despising way. Then he crossed the door!
"An ice and snow dragon, a real dragon!" the crowd was astonished. It was no wonder he had been chosen first, he had a real dragon body!
Lin Feng was shaking, it was the first time he had seen a real dragon!
PMG Chapter 1355
Chapter 1355: Going to Die Soon?
"With his strength, he could have gone straight to the seventh floor, he didn't need to sit all those tests, but he did anyway. He was quite confident in himself." thought Lin Feng.
No matter what, people who had dragon blood were always talented. The envoy had chosen him first and he was also the first one to cross the door.
Who would be the remaining eight?
At that moment, the envoy looked at a second person and a light illuminated him. It was a young man wearing fine clothes.
"You, come!" said the envoy smiling. The young man in fine clothes walked in front of the statue and waited for the opponents to come to him.
Just like the first battle, ten people came. The strongest cultivators still didn't attack, they were being cautious. Seven more people would be chosen by the envoy and they had a chance to be selected amongst them.
The envoy shouted and the battle started. The young man in fine clothes jumped, two sharp glaciers appeared, as well as two icy roads. In the blink of an eye, he killed everyone and crossed the door.
"How strong! Maybe the people who went to the fifth or sixth floor already had level seven abstruse energies." thought Lin Feng. There really were incredible geniuses there.
The envoy then called the third person. It was the beautiful girl in black clothes. Lin Feng had already noticed that she was extraordinary. The two people Lin Feng had noticed previously were surprisingly the first and third cultivators selected by the envoy.
After the girl in black clothes, there were six people left. The girl didn't lose either, she also crossed the door. The envoy continued selecting people until there were three people left.
Lin Feng and Yi Ren Lei had waited. They were patient with their hearts as calm as still water. Yi Ren Lei had always wanted to come to the shrine and receive the teachings of the goddess. Even though she had already learnt a lot, it wasn't enough. She hoped she'd go to the seventh floor as well and bath in the goddess' lights.
Yi Ren Lei thought she was quite talented. Even the Diviner told her that she was talented, that she would definitely become an emperor. She had seldom met people who were stronger than her. Some people, however, had gone straight to the seventh and eighth floor. If Yi Ren Lei didn't die, she'd practically be an overlord in the Ba Huang amongst people of her own generation.
Of course, Yi Ren Lei knew that things could change with a moment's notice. Some people had incredible abilities and some had discovered that they had a special body. Maybe that Lin Feng wasn't as strong as some of the people there, but in the future, he would probably surpass them. Even the Diviner had asked him to become his disciple.
"Yi Ren, should we? I can help you kill someone." said Lin Feng to Yi Ren Lei, using telepathy. There were three more spots, so they might not have more opportunities afterwards.
"It's not that easy, the envoy has already chosen six people and all of them were astonishingly strong. Their cultivation level wasn't necessarily high, but their battling prowess was extraordinary. Some of them could even defeat cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer. The last three people will probably be similar." said Yi Ren Lei sighing.
"What about you?" asked Lin Feng.
"I give up!" said Yi Ren Lei smiling in a pure way. Three people were left, even if the last three people chosen by the envoy weren't as strong as the previous ones, the ten opponents would probably be stronger because they hadn't tried in the first place. There were still some cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer left.
Lin Feng looked at her smile and smiled too. She gave up, it didn't mean she failed, it meant that she had already learned a lot.
"One of us must go inside. We must join hands and kill the last person!" thought the princes. They had to join hands and kill the last one, then the strongest one would go to the seventh floor. Of course, all of them hoped they'd be the one to enter.
The seventh person the envoy chose was a cultivator of the fourth Zun Qi layer who could also defeat people at the top of the Zun Qi layer.
The envoy was about to choose the eighth person, and everybody was nervous, clenching their fists. Two more chances. All those who had thought the envoy would choose them started participating too.
The eighth person was a powerful cultivator who killed three people in a flash. However, as he was killing the ninth person, terrifying ice-claws appeared above him and cut straight through him. Many people were astonished.
"It's him! He's been hiding his real strength the whole time." thought Lin Feng when he saw the young man who had just killed the eighth selected candidate. It was a tall young man in snowy clothes. He had seen him on the fourth floor when the snowflakes would move away from him as they fell.
If some people had concealed their strength, the envoy couldn't guess accurately. Lin Feng had also concealed his real strength because Yan Di had told him to.
After that young man crossed the door, only one person was left.
The envoy slowly glanced at the crowd and a light illuminated one person. Lin Feng started shaking as he was illuminated by a dazzling light. He was the ninth selected candidate!
"Considering the strength you displayed, you shouldn't have been the ninth selected candidate, but I had to make a difficult decision. I need to change the rules." said the envoy looking at Lin Feng in a sharp way, "This time, you won't fight against ten people, but thirty!"
"No, he can't accept!" said Yi Ren Lei astonished. "He's not going!"
Lin Feng was astonished, thirty people? And he couldn't use holy weapons. Did the envoy want to kill him?
Maybe, the last opponents would be terrifying. Ten people was already difficult, but thirty? Lin Feng couldn't imagine how that would end.
"Nobody can refuse my decisions, it's the Ice and Snow Shrine!" said the envoy.
"Why?" Lin Feng didn't understand. Why did the envoy want him to die?
"Because you shouldn't have come to the Ice and Snow Shrine, you should have gone to the Demonic Shrine! I'm already being magnanimous!" said the envoy. Lin Feng understood now, he was in the wrong place!
