Sha Tongtian stood still on the steps, made a sword gesture with his eyes flickering, and patted the white leather bag on his waist. A dazzling green light rushed into the sky, then a green flying sword like the autumn water stopped in front of him.
In the next moment, Sha Tongtian changed gestures consecutively, making the green flying sword burst out with a more brilliant light; a sharp sword qi was also exuded from his body.
After a flash of green light, the sword light covered his body.
There was a loud bang right away, and a sword shadow of several ten meters long wrapped around Sha Tongtian. He rushed directly up the stairs in a flash.
“Body and sword fusion!”
Sha Tongtian’s sword controlling technique was indeed the body and sword fusion mystic arts that Liu Ming had only recently realized.
The green sword light surpassed thirty steps at once. As a result, a thin five colors light curtain appeared on the back of the stairs, blocking the green sword light.
What made people stunned was that the green sword light didn’t stop at all. It advanced all the way through with irresistible force.
After the light curtain flashed wildly, it was completely shattered.
But after the green sword light got past the eightieth step, its speed was slowed down in a tremble.
However, after the green sword light was released for a while, it still rushed through more than a dozen light curtains.
On the last few steps, after a buzzing sound, several layers of light curtains were condensed. They formed into a thick five colors light wall, blocking the last stair like a hill.
A cold snort came from the green sword light of Sha Tongtian. The green sword light suddenly shrank by a little and turned into deep green. It looked even more dazzling instead.
With a few flashes of the green sword light, it crushed on the light wall.
“Boom“, an earth shattering loud noise.
After a bright light burst out, the green sword light tore an opening on the five colors light wall and penetrated through.
As the green’s sword light faded, Sha Tongtian had already entered the palace gate.
From the young man in brocade standing out from the crowd to reaching the last five colors stairs, it took only a dozen seconds. The whole process was so quick that everyone widened their mouths in shock.
It seemed that people were affected by Sha Tongtian’s easy advance, so several people immediately walked out and stepped on the five colors stairs.
But unfortunately. These people were obviously hot-headed for a while. Their strength was relatively weak. They were knocked down after a few minutes.
“Old Qiao, let’s go.”
Among the crowd, the young woman in purple clothes of Ouyang Family said lightly, then she walked out. Seeing this, the old man in green robe followed up without saying a word.
“It’s the people of the Ouyang Family.” Someone in the crowd immediately recognized the identity of the young woman in purple clothes.
The young woman in purple clothes walked up the stairs with a calm expression. In less than a moment, she crossed more than ten steps and continued to walk up slowly, but she was obviously much slower.
The old man in green robe looked solemn seeing this; he also stepped onto the five colors stairs.
As a result, as soon as the old man stepped onto the first step, the entire five colors stairs burst into dazzling colorful light. On the above, the face of the young woman in purple clothes turned pale. She barely managed to stabilize herself as she channeled spiritual power.
At this moment, although the old man in green robe was on the first step, his feet were wrapped by a layer of five colors curtain. He seemed to have encountered a repulsive force, making his body unstable.
The old man’s face changed slightly, and he hurriedly took out a medicinal bottle. After taking several elixirs in a row, his figure trembled, and a huge aura suddenly rose up.
This monstrous aura obviously surpassed the early stage of the Crystallization Period and reached the intermediate stage of the Crystallization Period. The old man stabilized his figure temporarily, but he seemed unable to progress to the next step.
At the next moment, Qiao Ziyi quickly took out a white jade ruler. As he chanted, he waved the white ruler and a dazzling white light was launched on the young woman in purple clothes, turning into a faint white halo.
The white halo seemed faint, but it instantly made the young woman in purple clothes relieved. Her footsteps suddenly became lighter, and she quickened her pace. It didn’t take long for her to reach the eightieth step, and she was still climbing.
Seeing this, the cultivator onlookers burst into exclamation.
However, after the young woman in purple clothes reached the ninety-fifth step, the repulsive force suffered by the old man in green robe below seemed to increase several times. His whole body trembled. His forehead even had blue veins, and his eyes turned red, but he still chanted, waving the jade ruler with a trembling arm.
The white halo around the young woman in purple clothes suddenly faded a lot, and her brows wrinkled slightly on her pretty face. In an instant, a long green blade light flashed out. As she pointed with her finger, the blade light shot out, breaking through the five colors light on the stairs in front.
The young woman in purple clothes immediately shook her body, turning into a stream of light to pass through the white light curtain. As the green light flashed, she had already gone into the palace gate.
After seeing the young woman in purple clothes successfully passed the five colors stairs, the old man in green robe’s complexion turned relief. He could no longer hold for more. As soon as the terrifying aura of the five colors light gushed down, his body was bounced far away like a sand back and fell heavily on the open space not far away.
The old man struggled to get up. His face was as pale as paper. He immediately swallowed a few elixir and adjusted his breath on the spot.
Liu Ming took a faint look at the old man in green robe, and he noticed that his aura was extremely weak. He could not help but shook his head secretly.
This method was not a cleaver means. Five colors stairs could obviously perceive the cultivation of the person standing on it. This kind of assistance would increase the difficulty of passing the five colors stairs. The person who assists must have a powerful strength to provide support that surpasses the difficulty increased by the stairs. Moreover, the supporter would suffer a backlash of his own power; it was by no mean a minor case.
However, he obviously underestimated the temptation of passing the five colors stairs to everyone present. Immediately there were several other Crystallization Period cultivators who wanted to help their disciples to enter the palace, but they failed one by one without exception.
Among them was the young man in scholar robe of the Haoran Academy. With the help of the middle-aged scholar, he persisted to the ninetieth step. However, he still fell from the stairs because of his lack of strength.
However, Haoran Academy was worthy of being one of the four ancient sects. Although climbing the ladder was not successful, the middle-aged scholar stabilized his figure in a white flash when he was knocked back by the five colors light. Except for his face turning pale, he actually didn’t suffer any serious injury.
The young scholar vomited a few mouthfuls of blood. After returning from the stairs with a dispirited look, he stood back in front of the middle-aged scholar with his head down and said nothing.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Bai, you just advanced to the Condensation Period later stage, and your spiritual power is not completely stable, so you don’t have to be discouraged if you fail the test.” At this moment, a young man in a yellow shirt suddenly walked out of the crowd to the side of the young scholar and said calmly.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Shang.” When the young man in scholar robe saw the young man in yellow shirts, he was first surprised, then he respectfully saluted.
“Elder Bai, unfortunately, I also have an ancient mirror fragment. This time I’m also going to try this entry test of the Green Sky Illusory Palace.” The young man in yellow shirts smiled slightly, then he turned and spoke to the middle-aged scholar. .
“Nephew Disciple Shang’s strength is ranked within the top ten among the inner disciple, this kind of test is naturally not a problem to you.” When the middle-aged scholar saw the young man in yellow shirts, he naturally said with overjoy.
“Elder Bai has overpraised.” The young man in golden clothes said, jumped up onto the five colors stairs and walked straight up.
At the same time, a bright golden light gushed from the young man’s sleeves. Countless runes in the golden light flowed around the youth to protect him. Despite the impact of the five colors light, the runes still remained motionless.
As Liu Ming looked clearly, he quickly discovered the spiritual weapon used by the young man in yellow shirts was a thick golden book hidden in the sleeve. Countless golden runes kept appearing and disappearing in a loop. It seemed quite mysterious.
Senior Fellow Apprentice Shang walked very smoothly step by step. Within ten minutes, he easily reached the highest platform, and he flashed into the light curtain.
Seeing this, Liu Ming couldn’t help but look shock.
This young man was obviously much stronger than the young scholar before. The golden book in his hand should also be a powerful superb spiritual weapon.
While he was thinking about it, a dark shadow flashed in the crowd. A man in a strange black robe walked out. He was in his twenties, with good features; his eyes were flashing, but there was still a hint of childishness in his eyes.
The man’s sleeve had a weird mark which could be recognized at a glance that he was from the Bat Clan.
The man’s figure turned blurred, and he directly rushed up to the five colors stairs.
Every time he took a step, a black air current would be generated under his feet which would slightly separate him from the five colors light on the stairs.
After a few seconds, the young man of the Bat Clan passed the test without even touching the five colors light. He passed the test with ease, causing another commotion from the audience.
More than ten people stepped forward to try, but only one Physique Cultivator barely passed through with the help of his strong physical body. For a while, no one stepped forward.
After Liu Ming pondered for a while, he moved his body and stepped on the dark clouds to fly toward the five colors stairs.
As a result, when he stepped onto the first step, the faint flash of five colors glow flickered under him. He felt as if his feet were trapped in a mire. At the same time, an invisible force was pulling his body from the left and right, trying to forcibly push him out of the stairs.
“So this is how it feels…” Liu Ming smiled as he felt the impact of the five colors glow on his body.
The power of enchantment on this stairs, in general, was an invisible force field. One could only withstand such force with spiritual power, spiritual weapon or physical body.
For Liu Ming, who had a strong physical strength, it should not be too difficult to pass this test.
