Chapter 82: The Five Peaks Were Open
Four months had passed since Jiang Yun’s disappearance. And this day, the bell of the Seeking-Tao Sect rang again, calling all disciples together. Dao TianYou, the Lord of the sect, showed up and announced a news. Two months later, the activity Cross the Five Peaks would start!
It was a very exciting announcement for everyone.
Cross the Five Peaks was a shortcut for all factotum disciples and outer disciples to become inner disciples. However, as a magic treasure of each peak, even if the Peak Masters had to consume a lot of Spiritual Energy to exert it. So it could only be opened once a year.
It was less than a year from the last time to open the Five Peaks. Therefore, it now got an unexpectedly early start, which made many disciples overjoyed.
Because even though it was extremely hard to cross the Five Peaks successfully, it was a precious experience chance, as these five magic treasures contained different Tao that the five peaks were expert in. Even if disciples failed in this activity, they could more or less get some enlightenment on their Tao practice in the process.
Though failed, many disciples could enhance their cultivation level in a short time after that activity.
Because of this, every disciple wanted to have a try. But unfortunately these magic treasures had an upper limit on the number of people they could accommodate. Therefore, the sect ruled that only disciples over the Sixth Level of Meridians Unclogged Realm could participate in this activity.
This not only gave factotum disciples hopes, but also controlled the number of people to attend this annual activity, roughly fixed at a thousand, with around 200 people each peak averagely.
Although a thousand people sounded quite a lot, it was obviously not a large number when compared with the total number of disciples in the Seeking-Tao Sect which was almost ten thousands. Therefore, in order to get this opportunity, disciples should always work hard to reach the Sixth Level of Meridians Unclogged Realm as early as possible.
This was a kind of encouragement for disciples.
Hence, hearing this news, almost every disciple had been devoting themselves in cultivation. Especially those who were in the Fourth or Fifth Level of Meridians Unclogged Realm hoped to reach the Sixth Level in this two-month time at any cost so as to get the chance to cross the Five Peaks.
Time went by, and two months passed quickly.
When the first rays of sun shone in the morning, with bell ringing loudly, a large number of disciples rushed towards the Main Peak, the Fence Tao Peak.
The so-called Cross The Five Peaks was not really open the five peaks at the same time. Instead, each day only a peak would be opened, which as a result would last for five days. Since the Seeking-Tao Sect was famous of swordsmanship, every time the first peak to be opened would definitely be the Main Peak, the Fence Tao Peak.
When the bell stopped ringing, there were already a large number of disciples at the foot of the Fence Tao Peak. It could be said that except those who had missions outside the sect, almost all of them had come to watch this event.
These disciples had been divided into two parts clearly. Those who were standing in front of the crowd were around 200. They stared at the peak with great intensity, with strong sense emitted from their bodies. Obviously, they were those who got the chance to have a try in this event. While a much larger number of people behind them were bystanders only.
Not all of the disciples who chose to cross the Fence Tao Peak were outer or factotum disciples of the Fence Tao Peak. Many were from the other four peaks. They came here because they had been practicing swordsmanship.
Dozens of inner disciples of the five peaks all used their Spiritual Sense to detect these participants to see whether there would be someone extremely excellent.
A convention was that some outer disciples who had already had the ability to enter the Blessing Land Realm would deliberately suppressed their cultivation level.
They were waiting for the Cross The Five Peaks’ open, in which they could make themselves to be famous if they cross this event successfully.
In addition, if they could cross the five peaks successfully, they would not only get a chance to be directly accepted as a disciple by peak masters, but also gain a lot of awards.
However, these people set their expectations too high. Each year, too less people could cross the five peaks successfully and become an inner disciple.
Only five people had made it till now; and they were disciples of five peak masters; Fang YuXuan was one of them.
When he had participated this event, he had not been at the Blessing Land Realm. It was right because of his amazing show through the event that made him become the First One in inner disciples.
However, even if people didn’t break through, they would still get additional attention from Elders and masters of peaks as long as they performed well during the event, which would a bit helpful for their growth in the future.
Now there was still a little time away before the Fence Tao Peak to be opened. Many onlookers were unable to restrain their excitement. They could not help commenting and wondering who would be most likely to succeed.
“I have no idea whether others could make it. But I’m sure that Wu Shang from the Five Elements Peak will cross it successfully!”
“Sister Lu YouRong should succeed as well, since she has a Two-Free Tao Physique. How quickly her cultivating speed is that she has already at the Eighth Level of Meridians Unclogged Realm. What’s more, it’s said that she has been practicing a special cultivation method.”
“Stop arguing, you guys! All you are talking about are new disciples! I’ll tell you what, the most likely ones are two outer disciples who have been in the sect for not a short time.”
As people were discussing excitedly, a lazy voice with kind of disdain suddenly sounded over all the voices, attracting everyone’s attention.
It was a stocky man in a suit of factotum clothes who was speaking. If Jiang Yun was here, he would tell that this man was right Bao YuanQiang whose Dantian had almost been destroyed by him previously.
Many people knew Bao YuanQiang. He was recognized once he was speaking.
“Hey, Nosy Parker Bao, what else did you find out?”
Bao YuanQiang curled his slip and said, “Bah! This is a big message. It’s not that easy to tell you.”
“Oh, come on! I know you are well informed. You are the First Informed One in our sect. Don’t keep in suspense please. Tell us quickly. Who they are?”
“That’s it! We’ll buy you a drink later!”
With a burst of applause, Bao YuanQiang finally gave the answer, “For the sake of your thirst for knowledge, let me tell you. These two outer disciples have already reached the Ninth Level of Meridians Unclogged Realm four years ago, and they have been able to enter the Blessing Land Realm two years ago. However, they persistently oppressed their cultivating level up to now!
“Even they haven’t planned to show up in this year’s event. It is said that their cultivation level is so hard to be suppressed any longer that they have to attend this activity.”
Hearing this, people were stunned. Everyone dreamed of entering the Blessing Lang Realm, while there were someone who could reach it but deliberately not to?!
Some people were lost in thought, wondering if there was an outer disciple who fit the description.
“This is to lay the foundation solidly!” Bao YuanQiang laughed proudly, “The Meridians Unclogged Realm is the foundation of the Blessing Land Realm. The stronger the foundation is, the easier you do cultivation will be in future!”
People were more curious, “So…having such amazing stamina and patience, who the hell are the two men?”
“Hah!” Bao YuanQiang smiled, “Stop talking these two for a while. Wouldn’t you expect another person besides these two?”
Bao YuanQiang didn’t answer but stare at the Hidden Peak!
