Chapter 265: Shocking Phenomenon!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“It really is a human. What’s going on?”
“Doesn’t the White Dragon Race hate us humans the most?”
“Who is this person?”
“I don’t know. I’ve never seen him before.”
As soon as Long Xiaoyu appeared, she caused a huge uproar behind her, and even Qin Jue became the focus of everyone’s attention.
It couldn’t be helped. Standing beside Long Xiaoyu, it was hard for Qin Jue not to be noticed.
Most importantly, he was a human.
One had to know that the White Dragon Race had always hated humans and even often fought with the Martial Sacred Hall because of it.
But now, the White Dragon Race Divine Maiden was with a human youth. How could everyone not be shocked?
“Where did this guy jump out from?”
Chu Xiao was surprised.
When he fought Long Cang before, he had used his spirit sense to scan the Celestial Qilin, but he didn’t sense Qin Jue at all!
In the darkness, the Demon Lord smiled with interest.
Because they rarely appeared and were always neutral, the Demon Race was the most mysterious among the current top three factions.
Even the White Dragon Race and the Martial Sacred Hall had a limited understanding of them.
Therefore, both of them were very afraid of the Demon Race.
Otherwise, Chu Xiao wouldn’t have retreated so easily just now.
“Is this the Heaven Ascension Steps?”
Looking at the mountain peak that went straight into the sky in front of him, Qin Jue pondered.
He could sense the strange power on the stone steps, but to him, this strange power was no different from air.
“Senior, are you sure you want to ascend the Heaven Ascension Steps?”
Long Xiaoyu looked worried.
According to what she knew, if one was more than five thousand years old and forcefully participated in the Divine Seal Altar trials, it was very likely that they would suffer a backlash and suffer heavy injuries.
“What’s wrong? Is there a problem?” Qin Jue answered with a question.
Long Xiaoyu was about to speak when Qin Jue interrupted her with a wave of his hand. “Alright, let’s go up.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Qin Jue raised his foot and stepped onto the Heaven Ascension Steps.
At this time, on Celestial Qilin, Long Cang frowned and said, “That guy is also participating in the Divine Seal Altar trials?”
“Impossible!” Long Kun said firmly.
Long Kun was baffled at the thought of a tenth realm Great Void Stage expert participating in the Divine Seal Altar trials.
Even with Long Xiaoyu’s talent, it took her thousands of years to barely advance to the sixth realm of the Great Void Stage. Even if she managed to ascend the Divine Seal Altar, it was still unknown when she would be able to step into the tenth realm of the Great Void Stage.
After all, after the sixth realm of the Great Void Stage, the difference between each realm was like the difference between heaven and earth. It had taken Long Kun nearly a hundred thousand years to reach where he was now.
No matter how talented Qin Jue was, could he have cultivated from the Yellow Stage to the tenth realm of the Great Void Stage in just five thousand years?
Long Kun thought it was impossible unless this world had gone crazy.
However, in the next second, Long Kun was instantly dumbfounded because Qin Jue had really stepped onto the Heaven Ascension Steps!
Shouldn’t he be repelled or suffer a backlash?
Long Kun was dumbfounded.
He wondered if Qin Jue really was younger than five thousand years old.
He quickly realized that this world was indeed crazy.
Compared to Long Kun, Long Cang was much calmer because he didn’t know Qin Jue’s realm at all, so he didn’t think about any of that.
However, Long Cang soon became just as stunned as Long Kun.
That was because Qin Jue started floating!
Long Cang was sure that he hadn’t seen wrongly. Qin Jue’s feet left the ground and he floated in the air!
Didn’t they say that one could not fly on the Heaven Ascension Steps?
As a Half God Stage expert who had once participated in the Divine Seal Altar trials and was only one step away from ascending it, Long Cang believed that even the current him wouldn’t be able to fly up the Heaven Ascension Steps. In fact, he couldn’t even approach the Heaven Ascension Steps.
Then how did Qin Jue do it?
It wasn’t just Long Cang. All the experts present were dumbfounded.
This was especially true for Chu Xiao and the Demon Lord. The stronger they were, the more they could understand how terrifying the Divine Realm and the Divine Seal Altar were.
Even someone as strong as a True God Stage expert could not figure out the Divine Realm and the Divine Seal Altar, let alone two Half God Stage experts like them.
“How… how is this possible?” Chu Xiao muttered to himself in disbelief.
The Demon Lord was silent, as if he was thinking about something.
Qin Jue didn’t care about the reactions of the outside world. Since he could fly, why did he have to go through so much trouble to walk up the steps one by one?
“Senior, you can fly on the steps?”
At this moment, the person who was most shocked was none other than Long Xiaoyu. She never expected that not only could Qin Jue ascend the Heaven Ascension Steps, but he could also fly on the steps!
Long Xiaoyu wondered if she was dreaming.
“Yes, it’s very easy to do.” Qin Jue put his hands behind his back and said matter-of-factly.
Long Xiaoyu :”…”
Long Xiaoyu didn’t think that was true at all.
Taking a deep breath, Long Xiaoyu forced herself to remain calm and said, “Senior, isn’t this very draining on your spirit energy?”
Although she didn’t understand why Qin Jue could ascend the Heaven Ascension Steps, Long Xiaoyu believed that Qin Jue could probably fly because of his tenth realm Great Void Stage cultivation.
“Not at all.”
Qin Jue shook his head.
“Should we fly up together?”
Long Xiaoyu :”…”
Long Xiaoyu couldn’t help but feel sorry for not being able to fly.
Thinking of this, Long Xiaoyu gritted her teeth and suddenly rushed out!
With a light sound, Long Xiaoyu instantly turned into afterimages and passed through countless geniuses, heading straight for the mountaintop!
“Mm? What just now?” A genius who was advancing with difficulty blinked his eyes and said blankly.
“So fast!” Another person exclaimed.
“Heavens, it’s the White Dragon Race’s Divine Maiden!”
In the blink of an eye, Long Xiaoyu had already surpassed all the geniuses who were still working hard at climbing the Heaven Ascension Steps and arrived at the top of the mountain. Wherever she passed, she would cause gusts of wind without stopping.
Exhaling, Long Xiaoyu smiled. “I feel much better now.”
“Yeah, the air here is pretty good.” Qin Jue chimed in.
Long Xiaoyu: “???”
“When did you get up here?”
“I saw that you were running so quickly and seemed to be in a hurry, so I came up to wait for you.” Qin Jue said.
Long Xiaoyu :”…”
Right at this moment, the wind and clouds suddenly surged in the sky, and a divine light descended onto Long Xiaoyu. In an instant, the ground shook, and auspicious signs appeared one after another. All sorts of rare and precious beast images were destroyed one after another, and they changed indeterminately.
“Look, the White Dragon Race’s Divine Maiden has triggered a phenomenon!”
“Such a phenomenon is too extraordinary!”
The faster one passed the nine tests of the Divine Seal Altar, the richer the rewards they would receive. Someone like Long Xiaoyu had actually directly caused a phenomenon!
After a moment, the divine light dissipated, and Long Xiaoyu felt refreshed. The spirit energy she had consumed had been replenished, and her meridians and blood qi had improved correspondingly.
Was this the benefit of participating in the Divine Seal Altar trials?
No wonder Grandpa Patriarch told Long Xiaoyu said that only by passing the nine tests of the Divine Seal Altar would one have a chance of becoming a True God Stage expert.
The first level allowed her to improve greatly. What would happen if she passed all nine levels?
Before Long Xiaoyu could figure it out, the sky surged again. However, this time, the range directly spread to the entire Divine Realm!
Like raindrops, divine light bloomed in the sky, piercing the eyes of everyone. It was as if energy was surging from the entire void and was crazily gathering towards the mountaintop, creating a magnificent scene!
“What’s going on? Why is there a second phenomenon?”
Everyone stared at this phenomenon and felt suffocated for a moment!
“It’s that human youth!”
