The Death Gate of the 90th Floor
It did not take them long to find a passage in the recesses of the mountains.
This passage was hot and the heat generated was intense.
A 40m towering black gate with golden runes inscribed on it soon greeted them.
Yi Ping had taken the lead as he looked at the group, “Is everyone alright?”
The majority of the group smiled weakly for they had taken a long walk through this smoldering heat.
Right now, everyone had been holding their breath for the past thirty minutes and they were feeling wobbly. It was because the smoldering heat was extremely venomous!
Everyone was holding their breath with their best intricate breathing techniques and maintaining their utmost efforts through sheer of will.
Yi Ping had held a mouthful of his vital breath with his Divine Revelation. Because of his mastery, he was able to recirculate the same vital breath within him for a long time.
Nuwa hummed coldly to Lele, “What a great place that you have brought us! This is actually the Death Gate and this whole place is like the infernal hell!”
Lele giggled softly, “So this is how the infernal hell looks like! Thanks for telling me. I am always wondering what hell looks like. It isn’t as horrible as I have been expecting!”
She batted an eye to the Celestial Liege and to Yi Si, “Why are my brother and daughter so quiet?”
Yi Si giggled but said nothing.
The Celestial Liege growled softly, “I really don’t understand at all.”
Lele asked, “Don’t understand what?”
The Celestial Liege heaved a heavy sigh, “I have trained every single day, four hours daily and my lazy sister actually ascend to the Celestial Realm earlier than me. Not only that, she is an immortal now…”
Lele corrected him immediately, “The Great Joyful Empress Goddess! You are to address me as such. I am making no exception for you even if you are my brother! That is because all immortals will have to bow before me. You don’t have to bow though. That will be my special grace towards you!”
Almost all the Heavenly Kings and Immortals were staring at Lele now; they were bemused, startled or astonished as they all thought. “Do I need to bow before her? Why did I agree to acknowledge her as the Empress Goddess of the Three Realms?”
It seemed that Lele was able to read their minds. She snapped her fingers to say, “That is because I am the Alma of the Great God Pangu. That is the undisputed fact. Only I can approach the Great God Pangu and bring everyone to the 100th level of the Stellar Sanctuary!”
Nuwa cursed softly, “Her boldness and audacity knows no limit…”
The rest of the maidens who had long acquainted with Lele were smiling secretly as they exchanged amused looks. While Yu’Er, Mei’Er and even Lingfeng had changed considerably, the Lele that they had known had never changed and the same went for her luck too!
Lie Qing lamented softly, “I don’t understand how on earth is she able to step on everyone’s toes and get away each time. Not only get away but her luck is simply too unbelievable. She should be the Goddess of Luck instead…”
The Jade Emperor faked a cough to get Lele and everyone else attention, before saying. “The final boss of the 90th floor lies within here. Are we ready?”
Alice flurried to the Jade Emperor, companied by Isa, Asura and Aiel as she said gently. “Respected Jade Emperor, I have something to say. I don’t mean anything else to damper our spirits but I need to warn everyone that this is the 90th floor. We should exercise caution and think twice before we proceed further.”
