Chapter 2161: Alliance
In Golden Mountain…
In the residential area for people who were from abroad, many people came to greet those who had the potential to be selected for the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds.
Many of those potential candidates didn't understand and thought that it had something to do with the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds. After all, they knew that Golden Mountain was one of the four influential groups since they were there, Golden Mountain had been chosen by the Shrine. Among the people who had the potential to become candidates of the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds, many of them were already from Golden Mountain. The four influential groups had outstanding disciples.
Their people were also going to sit the exam like the foreigners. Of course, what the Shrine had done was advantageous for them. It was easier for them to be selected for the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds. The foreigners weren't just pressured by the other foreigners, only but also by Golden Mountain's disciples.
Prince Wu Qing and Jiu Ling Huang had the most magnificent palaces in Golden Mountain. n.o.body had gone to see them, they had just heard that about the phenomenon.
A few people from Golden Mountain were standing in front of a palace. They glanced around, and one of the young men asked, "Who have we forgotten?"
An old man next to him replied, "One of them is Lin Feng. He's not bad, and he's also in Golden Mountain. You can go and see him. Make him join our group."
"Is he in Golden Mountain now?" asked the young man.
"I've been watching him. Apparently, he's back." said the old man calmly. The young man's eyes twinkled and he smiled, "Good, call Bing, we'll go and invite him together."
"Alright." said the old man nodding. Then, his silhouette flickered. After a short time, a beautiful woman arrived.
"Bing, let's go invite someone." said the young man nodding at the girl. The three people's silhouettes flickered. The old man took them to Lin Feng's palace.
When Lin Feng saw them arrive, he was surprised. These people were wearing different clothes, they were probably authentic members of Golden Mountain.
"Lin Feng, I'm Jin Zhen and this is my fellow disciple Bing," said Jin Zhen, smiling at Lin Feng.
"What do you want?" replied Lin Feng, smiling affably back.
"In a few days, it will be the exam for the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds. Brother Lin Feng, we're here to invite you to come join our group!" said Jin Zhen.
Lin Feng looked surprised and said, "I don't understand."
"Lin Feng, you don't understand what the exam of Golden Mountain is like, so it's normal that you don't understand. The second round of the selections consists of group fights. We want to form alliances of ten people to eliminate the other alliances. That way, we can eliminate many people."
"Ten people fight against other groups? Who's considered a winner, then?" asked Lin Feng. He was curious now. Golden Mountain has different rules for the selection procedure.
"First, amongst the groups of ten people, five people are eliminated," Bing told him.
"Half will be eliminated within a group?" Lin Feng was startled.
Jin Zhen nodded, "Indeed. But don't worry, among the people I chose, you're a hero. If you come to my palace, you'll definitely move on to the next round. Then, we'll eliminate people from other groups."
"Groups of five will fight?"
"No, three people will be chosen to fight one-on-ones. If they win, then the five enemies will eliminated," said Jin Zhen.
"The rules are cruel," said Lin Feng, eying Jin Zhen. "If my partners aren't strong enough, I'll lose too."
"Indeed. Therefore, I came to invite you! Besides you, among the people I invited, there's also the First Master of Jade Clouds, Yu Qing, and a very strong cultivator who has a king-type body. Coupled with me, Bing and you, we are five," w.a.n.g Zhen smiled, "Besides, Brother Lin Feng, Bing and I aren't weak."
"The First Master of Jade Clouds is also in Golden Mountain." Lin Feng's eyes twinkled. Golden Mountain was lucky. Three of the First Masters of the Continent of the Nine Clouds were here!
"Brother Lin Feng, don't worry. Everybody knows you in town. We mean you no harm. If you doubt our honesty, we can give you some Great Imperial Weapons," Bing spoke up, smiling and playing with her hair. She was definitely beautiful.
"Indeed. Brother Lin Feng, we believe in your strength; believe in our honesty," said Jin Zhen gently.
"Lin Feng, Jin Zhen and Bing are outstanding young people in Golden Mountain. They are the descendants of Great Weapon Masters," spoke up the old man proudly. These people really looked honest. There was no pressure or intimidation.
"I don't need Great Imperial Weapons," Lin Feng told them. "Since you seem honest, I won't refuse."
"Awesome, Brother Lin. Thank you very much!" said Jin Zhen, shaking hands with Lin Feng before smiling and taking a necklace out. "This is the necklace of our alliance. It means you can come to our deployment palace whenever you want. On the day of the exam, we'll gather together. To avoid trouble, just put a thread of G.o.dly awareness inside."
"Alright!" agreed Lin Feng. He understood. Since he had accepted an alliance with them, he had to do that, otherwise, if he went back on his word, it wouldn't be fair. Many people knew that such a thing was possible, so they tried to protect themselves.
Lin Feng released a thread of G.o.dly awareness to swear he was going to respect the alliance. He didn't mind. As long as he didn't lose because of other people, everything was fine, especially since he was really strong and the exam would probably be easy for him.
"Awesome, Brother Lin, thank you, see you soon!" said Jin Zhen, shaking Lin Feng's hand again. Bing smiled thinly and bowed before Lin Feng.
"Alright." Lin Feng nodded at the three people who left. They still needed to invite some more people.
After they left Lin Feng's palace, Jin Zhen and Bing smiled. Jin Zhen said, "Lin Feng is strong. With Yu Qing and the one who has a king-type body, we can be a terrifying group. The five others will just be cannon fodder."
"I'll be careful." said the old man nodding. If the five other people knew they were cannon fodder, how would they feel? However, that was the sad truth. The group round was complex in comparison with the previous one. Five strong cultivators were going to be eliminated in each group!
"Bing, when the right time comes, it'll be sad for you," Zhen said to Bing.
"Alright, I don't mind; the most important ones are you and Yu Qing," Bing smiled. Jin Zhen nodded.
After that, Lin Feng calmly waited for the beginning of the exam. A few of his fellow disciples had already arrived in G.o.dly Clouds City. Some people had been blocked at the entrance of the city, including Jing Xiao Yue. Mu Chen stayed with Jing Xiao Yue. The Saint was still with them.
Lin Feng hoped the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds would help him become stronger.
On the day of the exam, Lin Feng's robe suddenly fluttered in the wind, and a sound resonated in his brain. The voice asked him to come to the meeting point at noon.
Lin Feng knew that the exam was going to start.
At noon, the crowd had gathered by the stage. The strong cultivators of Golden Mountain were waiting already. There were many people.
"Everybody gather with your groups!" said someone. Instantly, everybody gathered with their chosen teams. Lin Feng went over to Jin Zhen and Bing, and very quickly, they were nine people. Two of them looked extraordinary. One of them looked n.o.ble, strange, and indifferent. That was Yu Qing from Jade Clouds.
The second one was wearing a golden robe, but his Qi was abnormal. Some King intent filled the air around him. He was surprised to see Lin Feng. So much time had pa.s.sed, and he had thought that people like them who had king-type bodies would progress faster.
The man was Dugu the Winner, who had a G.o.dly Imprint King Body!
Dugu the Winner looked at Lin Feng calmly. In the Dark Night Region, Lin Feng and Dugu the Winner were of the same generation. But Lin Feng had become famous earlier than him. Before heading to G.o.dly Clouds, Lin Feng was already famous in the Dark Night Region.
They said nothing to one another; they knew one another, that's all, they weren't friends.
PMG Chapter 2162
Chapter 2162: Fabricating Golden Mountain's Exam
The strong cultivators of Golden Mountain were standing in front of everyone. One of them said calmly, "Everybody, follow me to the Temple of Heaven!"
After that, everybody rose up into the air and started flying, After a short time, they saw an empty s.p.a.ce stage. They could see many buildings and halls around. Of course, the people from inside the halls could also see them.
Groups of ten surrounded the Temple of Heaven. Many square-shaped pillars appeared, which could accommodate many people.
"There are the pillars for each different group," said a strong cultivator who was standing in the center of the Temple of Heaven calmly. The groups of ten jumped onto their pillars.
"Now, after the end of the allocated time, there must be five of you on the pillars," said the Golden Mountain cultivator. People on the pillars looked nervous. From ten people, they were going to be only five left. Half of them were going to be eliminated. Many people felt great pressure. They knew it was going to be that way before coming, but still…
On Lin Feng's pillar, Jin Zhen looked over the group. Some people looked nervous, one of them said, "People who know they can't win should get down."
However, Jin Zhen smiled coldly, looked at five people and said, "Thank you very much for joining our group, but five people have to be eliminated. Since you came to Golden Mountain, you can stay here and you'll have the opportunity to watch."
"Why us five?" asked those five people. They all pulled long faces. One of them said, "When you invited us, you didn't say that."
"That wasn't what I meant. Yu Qing can't be eliminated. Dugu can't be eliminated either, he's got the G.o.dly Imprint King Body, and everybody knows Lin Feng too. Therefore, only you can leave. That's the best for the group!" said Jin Zhen calmly. However, the five people looked angry. Yu Qing suddenly opened his eyes. He seemed to have found a solution, as just after that, someone shrieked and their eyes started bleeding.
"Don't waste time!" Yu Qing said coldly. The five people were depressed. It was the sad truth. A few days before, the old man had invited them and had looked honest. However, now, in the blink of an eye, they were eliminated, how cruel! Some of them were devastated. They hadn't antic.i.p.ated this ruthlessness at all!
They weren't the only ones. Many people on the other pillars had to go through the same thing.
Lin Feng looked at Yu Qing, the First Master of Jade Clouds. He looked extremely strong. His eyes were terrifying, he could destroy people's seven apertures with his skill…
Quickly, the five rejects jumped off the pillar. Lin Feng thought that if he wasn't famous, he would have been kicked out like the others…
After a short time, only five people were left on all the pillars. They were all geniuses.
In such a short time, half of all the people had been eliminated; out of nearly four hundred people, only around two hundred were left.
"Now, time for the second round!" said the Golden Mountain cultivator. He glanced at the crowd and continued, "The groups of five will now fight against other groups of five. Five battles, if one side loses, then the whole group is eliminated. If someone doesn't accept, they can challenge three people from whole group and if they win, then they can move on!"
To avoid losing real heroes because of the groups, they created that rule, thought the crowd when they heard that. Lin Feng's group was extremely powerful: Yu Qing, First Master of Jade Clouds, could already win one battle. Lin Feng could also win one battle.
"The first ones can challenge first!" said the Golden Mountain cultivator. In a split second, someone jumped onto the battle stage, the crowd was startled. It was Prince Wu Qing! He was the first one to jump on the battle stage, people already felt sad for whoever was going to be chosen by Prince Wu Qing.
"You!" said Prince Wu Qing, pointing at a group on a pillar. Those people pulled long faces. They didn't want to get eliminated!
Someone did jump onto the battle stage, but how could that person compete with Prince Wu Qing? His Three Thousand Threads of Emotionlessness Strength made him emotionless and allowed him to use the Three Thousand Deadly Technique. In the twinkling of an eye, he flattened his opponent and won. After that, the opponents won one battle and lost the last one, which meant they were eliminated 2-1 for Prince Wu Qing's group. The group had one strong cultivator, but he couldn't compete with all the others.
"Yu Qing, get a win for us first, that way, we'll have the initiative in the next two rounds as well," said Jin Zhen to Yu Qing. Yu Qing nodded. His silhouette flickered and he landed on the battle stage. He opened his eyes and looked at some people. They all pulled long faces.
"You," said Yu Qing calmly. One person from that group jumped onto the battle stage. It was the weakest person of their group, because they had no hope to win against Yu Qing. They hoped they'd win the next two battles.
The two fighters stood on the battle stage. Yu Qing took a step. It looked like his eyes were coming out of his...o...b..ts, they were terrifying. Deadly strength rose in the twinkling of an eye. At the same time, his lips moved and strength emerged from his mouth and pulsed out. His opponent suddenly gave out a horrible shriek, and his seven apertures started bleeding abundantly. Yu Qing moved his hands and sent the enemy hurtling back to his pillar.
It was a crus.h.i.+ng defeat!
"Second battle. Dugu the Winner, you go," said Jin Zhen to Dugu the Winner.
"Alright." Dugu the Winner nodded and jumped onto the battle stage. His opponent also landed in front of him. His Qi was terrifying.
"Bzzz!" Three thousand G.o.dly Imprint Lights started floating above the battle stage. It was an incredible display of king Qi!
Dugu the Winner is really strong. Lang Ye and Jun Mo Xi must be really strong too. During those two years, I progressed too slowly. I only improved my physical strength, thought Lin Feng. Years had pa.s.sed since the Pathfinder Day of the Imperial Ranking List in the Holy City. Back then, Lang Ye was at the same cultivation level as Lin Feng, medium-level emperor, but now so much time had pa.s.sed. Lin Feng had already reached the top of the Huang Qi layer; the others were probably at the same level. After all, even though they weren't as strong as him when it came to fighting back then, they didn't understand Dao strength back then, either.
People who had king-type bodies became exponentially stronger as they broke through. Their fighting abilities also became more terrifying with time.
Dugu the Winner's Three thousand G.o.dly Imprint Lights started rising to the skies and fusing together with his Dao strength before cras.h.i.+ng onto his opponent. In the end, he won. Two wins, one loss. The three other members of the enemies' group turned pale as they were eliminated. With Yu Qing and Dugu the Winner in the enemies' group, how could they win?
The following battles were spectacular. Groups kept getting eliminated. Finally, someone who was in a group of losers challenged three cultivators from a rival group and defeated them. Some people recognized him: it was a terrifying cultivator from Supreme Clouds, which explained it all.
A few hours later, only eighty-some people were left on pillars. The others had been eliminated and wouldn't be able to partic.i.p.ate in the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds.
"During this third round, even more people will be eliminated. Each of the five members of the groups must fight. They must win three times. People who are in groups of winners but lose their battle also are eliminated. Those who win their battle and are in groups of winners can fight against three people from any group of winners. If they win the three battles, they are qualified," the Golden Mountain cultivator explained slowly. The weakest ones were all getting eliminated quickly. Only the most heroic of all heroes would remain in the end.
"This time, I'll choose the opponents randomly," said that person calmly. He pointed at two groups of five people. Their respective members fought against one another, their battles were incredible. That time, even if a group won, two of their members could get eliminated. Cultivators were now ready to use their full strength to win and avoid being eliminated. After several battles, only the strongest alliances were left.
Lin Feng was grim. Each time, at least five people were eliminated when two groups fought. A group couldn't win all the battles, or at least it hadn't happened. Therefore, each time at least six people were eliminated!
"Ru Yun was eliminated." Lin Feng was astonished. Jiu Ling Huang and the others were in the same group. Yao Yao, Zi Ling, and Ru Yun had been eliminated already. Only Jiu Ling Huang, Ru Feng, and a member of Golden Mountain hadn't been eliminated in their group.
"Your two groups. Fight." said the Golden Mountain cultivator at that moment. He was pointing at Lin Feng and his group on one side, and Prince Wu Qing's group on the other side.
They both had First Masters!
The crowd looked terribly excited. One group had to be eliminated. But Prince Wu Qing and Yu Qing were probably not going to fight. Even if one group was eliminated, they would then choose to challenge three people to be qualified. Otherwise, if a Master was eliminated before the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds, then…
Prince Wu Qing jumped onto the battle stage, Jin Zhen looked at Lin Feng and said, "Lin Feng, you fight this one."
Dugu the Winner had already shown how strong he was. Jin Zhen and Yu Qing could defeat the other members of Prince Wu Qing's group. Bing was also strong. They could all win. So now they were thinking that getting rid of Lin Feng was the best thing they could do.
PMG Chapter 2163
Chapter 2163: Cruel
"Prince Wu Qing." When Lin Feng heard Jin Zhen, he was surprised. The Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds hadn't even started and they were making him fight against Prince Wu Qing?
The rule was that only winners who were in groups of losers could challenge three people. If they lost, they were directly eliminated. Therefore, if Lin Feng fought against Prince Wu Qing, one of them would be definitely eliminated and wouldn't be able to partic.i.p.ate in the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds.
Prince Wu Qing's face looked strange. Lin Feng and Prince Wu Qing came from the Dark Night Region, and Prince Wu Qing was very self-confident. But he found it strange that he would fight against Lin Feng, especially since he hoped Lin Feng would partic.i.p.ate in the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds.
Lin Feng and Prince Wu Qing had the same thought. Lin Feng also knew that Prince Wu Qing had the Three Thousand Threads of Emotionlessness Strength and knew the Three Thousand Deadly Technique had to partic.i.p.ate in the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds, otherwise it'd be a pity.
Therefore, Lin Feng looked at Jin Zhen. He had invited him in, the three people had said beautiful words. Of course, Jin Zhen needed him at the beginning because he didn't want anything unexpected to happen. He wanted to reach this part of the process. Thanks to Yu Qing, the one who had a king-type body, and Lin Feng, he had made it here.
But now, things were different. Lin Feng was in their alliance, they had to get rid of someone, and without the least hesitation, he decided to get rid of Lin Feng. Jin Zhen and Yu Qing had to be sure they'd be able to partic.i.p.ate in the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds.
"You go for the first battle," replied Lin Feng calmly. When Jin Zhen heard Lin Feng, he frowned and looked at him coldly. Yu Qing and he were supposed to be qualified for the meeting. If they had to, they'd even get rid of Dugu the Winner.
However, Lin Feng was looking at Jin Zhen and telling him to fight against Prince Wu Qing himself!
People around looked amused. There was a problem in that group! They had won all their battles, it was normal to feel pressure, but now the rules were different. If someone lost in a group, they were eliminated even if the group won!
"We give up this round. Lin Feng lost," Jin Zhen said to the Golden Mountain cultivator evenly.
The referee looked startled, and Lin Feng said, "I agree to make an alliance with you, but I never agreed to listen to your order. Master, there is no such rule, is there?"
"Indeed, there is no such rule," said the Golden Mountain cultivator, nodding and looking at Lin Feng.
"Since there is no such rule, Jin Zhen can't give me orders," said Lin Feng calmly.
"But someone must fight in the alliance. You can decide together."
"How to decide? Jin Zhen and Bing are together. They want me to get eliminated," said Lin Feng calmly.
"What do you think then?" asked the Golden Mountain cultivator.
"Even if my group gives up, I refuse to admit I lost this battle. If anyone says I did, then they don't need to fight against Prince Wu Qing, they can fight against me directly. If I lose, then I'll be the loser. If I win, then they'll be the loser," said Lin Feng indifferently, "Otherwise, I also agree to leave the group and fight alone."
"That's a joke! You can't leave an alliance! Who do you think we are?" said Jin Zhen, taking a step towards Lin Feng and pointing his finger at him. The atmosphere became eerily silent. Lin Feng had the impression Jin Zhen wanted to stab him with that finger.
"An alliance doesn't depend on your definition, either!" retorted Lin Feng, also taking a step forwards. The air began to churn with rising energies. Lin Feng pointed back at Yu Qing, Holy Spirit swords condensing on his finger and turning into a sword. The energies emerging from both fingers collided, fissures appeared in the air between them.
Yu Qing and the others stepped away, frowning. An internal battle had started. Prince Wu Qing was probably really strong…
However, Lin Feng didn't fight, not because he didn't dare, but because he didn't think that it was the right time for him to fight against Prince Wu Qing. He wasn't the only one to think that way, Yu Qing thought the same as Lin Feng. It wasn't Yu Qing's time to fight against Prince Wu Qing either, they were both First Masters in their respective regions. They'd fight, but not at that moment. Therefore, Yu Qing didn't step up and fight against Prince Wu Qing, either.
Lin Feng thought the same. Jin Zhen just wanted one of them to be eliminated as if the members of his alliance were his p.a.w.ns. Lin Feng didn't like that at all. He despised such little people. Now that they wanted to sacrifice him, he burst out into anger.
"Insolent!" shouted Jin Zhen explosively. Terrifying lights illuminated the pillar. Lin Feng was directly in front of him. At such a distance, ordinary emperors would have died because of the energies.
"p.i.s.s off!" shouted Lin Feng extremely loudly as well. Sounds resonated in Jin Zhen's brain, and death strength moved into his eyes and G.o.dly awareness. At the same time, Lin Feng punched out in his direction, it seemed like it could crush anything.
The energies enveloped the two fighters explosively. Rumbling and explosion sounds spread in the air. The crowd saw Jin Zhen get pushed back. He tried to get back his balance, standing in the air. He looked at Lin Feng coldly.
Lin Feng jumped towards him, his robe fluttering in the wind. He looked at him coldly and said, "Who the f.u.c.k do you think you are? You think you can use me and then get rid of me as you wish? You think you can use us to get qualified for the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds? Then I only conclude you're not strong enough to rely on strength to get qualified! You're ridiculous!"
Lin Feng was humiliating Jin Zhen. It made him furious, he pulled a long face, especially since he had just been forced back by Lin Feng. What Lin Feng was saying wasn't groundless…
He wasn't as strong as Lin Feng, so he wanted to get rid of him? Did he think that he could use other people and didn't need to rely on strength to get qualified for the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds, just because he was from Golden Mountain?
"I'll fight this one!" Bing broke in, jumping onto the battle stage. The crowd frowned again. The girl was helping Jin Zhen. Lin Feng had just overcome Jin Zhen, so Jin Zhen couldn't say that Lin Feng was the loser, otherwise, the crowd would make fun of him!
In any case, Jin Zhen was not satisfied. Bing had decided to sacrifice herself for Jin Zhen!
Jin Zhen was really strong, and Bing had faith in him. She didn't know why he had been pushed back by Lin Feng, but in her opinion, Jin Zhen had just been too careless. Actually, if anyone fought in close combat against Lin Feng, the same thing would have happened. Jin Zhen was extremely strong, Lin Feng was aware of it, but he also knew how strong he himself was!
"You will still be out!" said Jin Zhen, glancing at Lin Feng coldly. He landed back on the pillar and stopped looking at Lin Feng, watching the battle stage instead. His eyes were still filled with ice-cold lights though.
Bing couldn't win against Prince Wu Qing, and rapidly lost. n.o.body was surprised. She lost and managed to make people forget about Jin Zhen's humiliation.
For the second battle, Jin Zhen jumped forwards. He still looked furious. His opponent was extremely strong, but Jin Zhen overwhelmed his opponent and won quickly.
For the third battle, Yu Qing fought and won.
For the fourth battle, Dugu the Winner fought, his thirty-six hundred G.o.dly Imprints condensed and he crushed his enemy. He won, too.
They had won three times. Their group had won.
However, according to the rules, Lin Feng had to fight, so he fought and won. People were amazed by their group. If Prince Wu Qing hadn't been in their enemies' group, they could have won five battles!
Yu Qing, Jin Zhen, Lin Feng and Dugu the Winner had all won. They were all extremely strong. In the enemies' group, only Prince Wu Qing won.
If people continue getting eliminated, who will get eliminated in that one? There are tensions between Lin Feng and Jin Zhen already, thought the crowd. Those who had won and were in winners' groups could stay on the pillars.
Almost four hundred strong cultivators, and now only forty are left…, thought those watching. Some people frowned, others sighed. People who were going to partic.i.p.ate in the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds were all terrifyingly strong. However, the real battles would start during the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds!
Besides, Golden Mountain still seemed to think that forty people was too much, so it wasn't over yet. They still wanted to eliminate people, but the groups weren't equal anymore. Some groups had three people, some groups had four people, and some rare groups still had five people. Some rare groups also had only one person left; people who were in groups who had lost, and had then challenged three people consecutively and won.
PMG Chapter 2164
Chapter 2164: End of the Exam
The Golden Mountain cultivator was standing in the air watching impa.s.sively. He glanced at the crowd and said, "Golden Mountain can select thirty people. Therefore, there are a dozen people who have to be eliminated."
"We have ten groups, each group can choose one person to eliminate. If there is a disagreement, you can fight to solve the issue. People who get eliminated can challenge three winners; if they win, they stay, and the defeated ones are eliminated," said the Golden Mountain cultivator calmly.
The fighters were nervous, as it was the last round. They needed to eliminate ten people, perfect, there were ten groups left.
"Round by round," said the strong cultivator glancing at the groups. he said, "You three, who do you want to eliminate?"
The three cultivators pulled long faces. They were extremely strong to have made it there. Now if someone wanted to fight against three people and win, it would be really difficult, because only the strongest cultivators were left.
However, n.o.body could change the rules. In that group, two people looked at the third at the same time. That person pulled a long face. Everybody had fought so far, so people were aware of everyone's strength. Maybe some people had hidden their real strength, but such people were rare. The person the other two cultivators looked at was indeed the weakest man in their group.
He said nothing and resigned himself. He still tried to challenge three people, but he lost quickly. He was eliminated, he wouldn't be able to partic.i.p.ate in the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds.
Heroes are now getting eliminated, thought Lin Feng, watching those people. The two people left were extremely strong. At the beginning, there were nearly four hundred people, and now only thirty would be qualified, it was quite cruel.
People were eliminated one after the other. The atmosphere was eerily silent. Finally, it was the turn of Lin Feng's group. Many people watched them carefully: Yu Qing the First Master of Jade Clouds, Jin Zhen from Golden Mountain, Dugu the Winner who had a king-type body, and Lin Feng. Those four people were extremely strong. None of them would accept getting eliminated.
Jin Zhen looked at Lin Feng. Lin Feng looked at Jin Zhen.
"Will you challenge three people straight away, or do we need to fight first?" said Lin Feng calmly. Jin Zhen looked at him in a very icy way. He hadn't had time to say anything, Lin Feng had already talked, as if Jin Zhen was the one who deserved to be eliminated the most.
Yu Qing obviously couldn't get eliminated. There was a conflict between Lin Feng and Jin Zhen. Dugu the Winner acted as if it all had nothing to do with him. Therefore, Lin Feng and Jin Zhen wanted to eliminate one another. Actually, Dugu the Winner was lucky that there were tensions between Lin Feng and Jin Zhen!
"That's exactly what I wanted to say!" replied Jin Zhen calmly.
"Think carefully. We can fight, I don't mind. But if you get injured, then challenging three people won't be easy for you and that way, you won't be able to partic.i.p.ate in the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds," said Lin Feng.
Jin Zhen looked at him coldly and said, "Come!"
After that, he jumped out and landed on the battle stage, staring at Lin Feng. His eyes were filled with murder. Dao power filled the air, and his cosmic energies rose to the skies.
Lin Feng looked at Jin Zhen and slowly walked forwards. Jin Zhen stretched out his arm and golden cosmic energies turned into a gigantic golden hammer.
"Hammer Refining Technique?" the crowd murmured. The members of Golden Mountain practiced weapon cultivation, so their weapons were powerful.
Lin Feng also jumped onto the stage, a loud sound ringing out. A terrifying black sword appeared above Lin Feng's head. It looked extremely sharp and vibrating ominously.
"Weapon King Intent?" the crowd frowned. Was that Lin Feng's spirit? Why did he have that kind of intent? The cosmic energies of that sword was composed were terrifying. They were even more powerful than Jin Zhen's cosmic energies.
Jin Zhen frowned, and his hammer moved. Deployment lights twinkled all over it. Jin Zhen rose up into the air, raising his hammer. Clouds appeared and a strong wind started blowing, the air turning dark. A terrifying strength rose up, trying to crush the sky.
"How strong, that strength is really oppressive," murmured the crowd, staring at the golden lights. The lights were getting more and more intense. Their Dao power looked incredible.
Lin Feng just looked at Jin Zhen coldly. His sword was now humming at an ear-splitting level. The strength of the earth, the sky, and the ten thousand things of creation condensed and fused together with the sword. At the same time, terrifying deployment marks started intertwining around it. Lin Feng started condensing the required strength for the celestial stage deployment spell, and the sword slowly fused together with it. His energies became more and more oppressive as well. It felt like nothing could block that sword.
The terrifying energies were screaming at one another. Jin Zhen's hammer streaked across the sky. People's hearts were pounding at its Qi. The hammer grew even more gigantic, and many hammer shadows appeared around it, converging on Lin Feng!
"Go." Lin Feng also released his gigantic sword with the celestial stage deployment spell. It turned into a beam of light and shot towards the hammer. Around the gigantic sword, a dark demon vortex appeared and absorbed everything in its path. The hammer shadows were all destroyed, and the hammer and the gigantic sword collided in a horrendous impact. Energies thundered and were rent asunder.
Jin Zhen was hurled backwards once again, his hammer was broken… but the sword continued moving towards him!
"Break!" Jin Zhen furiously punched out and made the air shake violently, trying to collapse s.p.a.ce around it. His strength struck the gigantic sword again, and it finally broke apart.
At the same time, a hurricane came howling for him. Jin Zhen saw a dark fist moving towards him, s.p.a.ce rippling around it. Jin Zhen raised his fist to block, and the sound of his bones breaking was clearly audible.
He was smashed away again. He shouted furiously and dazzling lights penetrated into Lin Feng's brain.
"Die!" Death Dao surged out and carried everything away. At the same time, a death sword appeared. Lin Feng raised both fists and punched out with thunderous force. The crowd saw Jin Zhen get smashed away, covered with blood and coughing up scarlet.
He fell from the sky and crashed to the ground. People's hearts were pounding.
"How strong. That gigantic sword, and his physical strength…" The crowd was staring at Lin Feng in astonishment. No wonder he dared act that arrogantly. He would probably rank quite well in the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds!
Lin Feng watched Jin Zhen get up and said coldly, "You're not qualified to partic.i.p.ate in the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds."
He turned around and went back onto the pillar. Dugu the Winner, Lin Feng, and Yu Qing were left!
Jin Zhen's face paled. He was still coughing up blood. The strong cultivator from Golden Mountain said to him, "You can either choose to challenge three people, or give up."
When Jin Zhen heard that, his face twisted. How could he challenge three people? Those people were all heroes!
"I give up…" said Jin Zhen, staring at Lin Feng. However, Lin Feng didn't even bother to look at him. Jin Zhen was a n.o.body to him. Lin Feng wanted to focus on the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds.
After their fight, more people were eliminated.
"Congratulations everybody," said the strong cultivator, smiling at the crowd, "You are now thirty. You will partic.i.p.ate in the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds. The others may still watch, however!"
When they heard that, they all smiled indifferently. Those who had been eliminated didn't look happy at all, though. They were desperate, sad, disappointed, they would only able to watch…
"Alright, you can disperse. One more month! Get ready for the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds!" said the referee calmly. Necklaces flew towards all those who had been qualified. They grabbed them and placed their G.o.dly awareness inside.
Silhouettes flickered as the people left. One more month was left!
PMG Chapter 2165
Chapter 2165: Different Thoughts and Opinions
Lin Feng headed back to his rooms. Some people were traveling with him now. Yao Yao smiled at him and said, "Brother Lin Feng, I'll help you make some pellets. They'll help you recover in case of physical or soul injuries. If you get injured during the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds, they'll be useful. Of course, it would be best if nothing happened to you, of course!"
Even though many people were going to partic.i.p.ate in the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds, n.o.body knew what the Fortune Shrine thought. For many people, the Shrines were mysterious. Only powerful groups of G.o.dly Clouds City had the opportunity to meet people from the Shrines.
Lin Feng was curious about the Shrines, but he didn't do any research about them. He was convinced that he was going to learn more about them during the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds.
The Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds would allow him to learn about the very heart of the cultivation world!
"I'll take the soul pellet, but I don't need other pellets. I can control life cosmic energies," said Lin Feng, smiling back at her.
Yao Yao's eyes twinkled and she said, "Brother Lin Feng, you know so many types of cosmic energies!"
"Indeed, many!" he agreed.
"Hihi, even though I can't partic.i.p.ate in the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds, I will be happy to watch you, as well as Brother Ling. Don't fight against one another!" said Yao Yao, looking over at Jiu Ling Huang.
Lin Feng and Jiu Ling Huang glanced at one another, but said nothing. They were both unwilling to fight one another but if they had to, neither of them would flinch, of course!
Both knew they might have to fight against one another during the meeting!
"There's one more month. Brother Lin Feng, what are you going to do?" asked Yao Yao to Lin Feng.
"Practice and relax. I need to make my foundation even more stable!" replied Lin Feng. He couldn't do much in a month. He would stay in Golden Mountain and practice cultivation. He wanted to make his strength more stable, and become stronger. He didn't feel any pressure, as he knew he could end up in the top hundred, but n.o.body could antic.i.p.ate what was going to happen during the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds!
"Alright. Good, I'll practice cultivation too. I'll try to catch up with you two!" Yao Yao grinned.
Lin Feng went back to his residence and isolated himself from the outside world to practice cultivation.
The exams at Holy Cultivation Tower, Demon Sect and Ghosts and Spirits Temple were over, too. They had all selected thirty people. Like Golden Mountain, those who had been selected were also heroes!
In Holy Cultivation Tower…
Outside of a tower, two strong cultivators gazed into the distance coldly.
"w.a.n.g s.h.i.+, during the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds, if I have to fight against you or Lin Feng, I'll be merciless!" declared Lei Dong Tian, dark Kalpa lights twinkling around him. w.a.n.g s.h.i.+ looked at Lei Dong Tian and grunted coldly.
Someone rose up into the air and stopped next to him. It was w.a.n.g Jie! The Pellet Kings Clan had found a way to send w.a.n.g Jie to Holy Cultivation Tower. w.a.n.g Jie and w.a.n.g s.h.i.+ were both going to partic.i.p.ate in the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds!
Not far from them, outside of another tower, someone gazed into the distance as well and whispered, "Feng, I have the feeling you're in G.o.dly Clouds City. You'll probably partic.i.p.ate in the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds…"
In Ghosts and Spirits Temple, a dark mist surrounded a silhouette. That person's eyes were pitch-black. He looked terrifyingly b.e.s.t.i.a.l.
"Little boys, get ready for the carnage!" said Tianhun evilly and coldly. "Lin Feng, I've heard that you are in the Eastern Town too. Even if your physical strength is great, I'll still crush you…"
In another town of G.o.dly Clouds City, b.e.s.t.i.a.l Qi dashed to the skies from a mountaintop. The people there all looked sanguinary and bloodthirsty. They looked like born killers. The Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds was going to start!
In the Northern Town, a young man on a flatland stood with his hands clasped behind his back. He was wearing a cyan robe, and releasing king Qi which filled the air. He looked like an arrogant king, his eyes sharp, the vision of a peerless cultivator.
There was a person at the top of Holy Mountain. He looked happy, relaxed, and light-hearted, a well-educated scholar above worldly strife. He didn't release any Qi. Behind him, someone slowly arrived. Lin Feng knew that person… Xian Ren from Holy Mountain!
"Brother, this time, you have to rank first at the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds," whispered Xian Ren to the young man. He didn't reply, his composure unchanged.
Not far away, a bald Buddhist monk who was holding beads walked slowly and gazed into the distance. He put his palms together and slowly closed his eyes. Then, he sat down cross-legged. He also looked pure and above worldly strife.
"That silly monk is pretending again," said Xian Ren. However, the Buddhist monk was already meditating, the outside world had nothing to do with him anymore.
Somewhere else, a bald man was bathing in sunlight. He wasn't a Buddhist monk, however. He was courting a beautiful woman, he smiled and said, "There are many strong cultivators in the Continent of the Nine Clouds. We should be a couple and have children. Maybe if we're lucky, the G.o.ds will grant us some gifts."
Someone heard those shameless words. There was no lack of strange things in the Continent of the Nine Clouds. There were many geniuses, the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds was about to start and someone surprisingly dared hara.s.s a beautiful woman. It was quite strange…
Somewhere else, Hou Qing Lin was composed as he gazed into the distance. The Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds was about to start, and he was going to partic.i.p.ate. However, it was the first time in his life he had doubts. There were so many extremely strong cultivators…
Jian Mang and Hou Qing Lin were different. Jian Mang couldn't see anything. At that moment, he was sitting on a stone pillar and waiting calmly.
In the Eastern Town, Prince Wu Qing was seated in a golden palace, his Emotionless intent filled the air. The Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds was finally going to start.
It was approaching quickly. Among all the geniuses who had been selected for the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds all had different thoughts. They knew that soon they'd be fighting against people from other places, all those people were powerful and influential. Who would stand at the top?
Very far away, in the Dark Night Region, in the Holy City, in Champion University…
Years had pa.s.sed.
The atmosphere remained unchanged. They continued recruiting students. Tiantai had become the most powerful group in Champion University. Yun Qing Yan was always very busy recruiting people. Each time they recruited new people, they brought them to the Champion Palace, and the name at the very top of the Celestial Champion Ranking List was Lin Feng.
Each time, the newcomers' hearts were filled with admiration and intent. Four Ancient Holy Clans had bullied him back in the days, and in return Lin Feng had destroyed Ji Chang with his sword attack.
In the Celestial mountains, two old men were playing chess. Ancestor s.h.i.+ Tian put a piece down and smiled, "These years, Lin Feng caused great trouble in Qi Tian Holy Town, then he disappeared. Now, the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds is going to start soon. I would guess Lin Feng is there."
Ancestor Xuan Tian moved his piece and said calmly, "Even though Lin Feng is strong, the Continent of the Nine Clouds is gigantic. There will be many geniuses there. Only a few years have pa.s.sed, he can't be that strong, either. If he manages to get selected to partic.i.p.ate in the meeting, then he can be proud of himself already. His name will continue dazzling in the Champion Palace."
"Old buddy, you underestimate Lin Feng!" said Ancestor s.h.i.+ Tian, smiling indifferently.
"Maybe!" Ancestor Xuan Tian grunted.
Someone arrived, and the two old men turned around and asked, "What's going on?"
"That person wants to take the Champion exam!" said the new arrival, sharp lights twinkling in his eyes.
The two old men smiled. "Alright, alright. Things change with time. Champion University embraces change, too!"
After that, he continued playing. Ancestor Xuan Tian looked funny suddenly, he started fuming with anger and his eyes were glaring as he shouted furiously, "How shameless!"
But Ancestor s.h.i.+ Tian laughed and left, ignoring him.
Those days, stars were particularly dazzling in the Continent of the Nine Clouds, just like the candidates of the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds.
