Trials of the Stellar Sanctuary
The passage was dimly lit but Lingfeng and Youxue had moved swiftly in front of them.
All of a sudden Yi Ping could see an entrance but Lingfeng and Youxue had stopped suddenly in their tracks.
Yi Ping and the rest of his group were immediately greeted by howling windblasts that were making its way through the imposing passage!
Yang Min was startled as she asked, “Where does the wind come from?”
The Universal Old Man smiled weakly, “Nothing is improbable inside the Stellar Sanctuary. This is one part of the trials. You shall see it soon enough!”
Lele was startled, “This is part of the trials?”
The passage had led them into a gigantic chamber with a stone platform at the end of it!
It was because the path had suddenly ended into a bottomless abyss!
Yi Ping was startled when he had caught up with Youxue and Lingfeng, “There is no path in front of us?”
Youxue said breathlessly as she turned around, “Not quite. There are two paths as a matter of fact.”
Yi Ping gasped softly as he nodded slowly.
Indeed there were two paths that were in inconspicuous view!
Yi Ping stepped to the edge of the platform as he peeked into the darkness of this gigantic chamber.
That was the first path!
Even though it was a bottomless abyss that was in front of him but he could see rows of towering pillars that stood in the middle of the abyss.
The pillars were separated by a distance of five meter each and in the darkness at the other end was a stone platform with a gigantic towering heraldry gate!
When Lingfeng saw the expressions in Yi Ping’s eyes, she smiled gently. “It is exactly what you have thought. To reach that gate over there, we must leap over the top of the pillars. If we miss a step then we will drop into the abyss.”
Yi Ping muttered, “This requires not only a good lightness swiftness skill but also courage…”
Youxue nodded, “And luck too. It is the strong winds here that are making the jump difficult and dangerous…”
Yi Ping looked to look at the second path which could lead them to the other side of the platform.
The second path was not so obvious for it began at the edge of the platform and was narrow. In order to walk this path, a person must lean against the wall and tread carefully.
Yi Ping furrowed his eyebrows as he stared blankly at the second path. Finally he said, “The second path seems to be the most dangerous.”
Jing’Er looked nervously at the two paths before she muttered, “The winds that are on the edge seems to be blowing stronger than the middle…”
