“Master Yi Ping…”
Before long, Yi Ping had reached the 100th steps and he had struck a barrier of impassable windforce that was hindering him!
But still he persisted and every step that he had taken, he felt a mounting pressure that seemed to crush him!
By the time he had reached the 500th step, his legs were already shaking!
And there were 9500 more steps more!
Every step that he had taken, the mounting pressure would only increase!
By the time he had taken the 1000th step, he was already perspiring and he felt as though his chest would burst at any time!
He was shaking and thought, “If I give up now, then I will surely perish as well! I must not give up!”
At the bottom, he could still hear everyone urging him on and calling his name!
Lingfeng, Alice, Lele, Xian’Er, Nuwa and Lie Qing were whispering to him and urging him on!
Their voices had become withdrawn because of the distance and all his focuses were only on taking the next one step, moving from one golden step to the other!
By the time he had climbed to the 3000th step, he could no longer hear from any of his group and after a while he was too tired to count anymore!
He had only one goal in his mind; to reach to the very top where the blinking light was!
The powerful windforce was pressing onto him like a pressuring wall that threatened to sweep him down the stairs despite the fact that he was already mustering all his strength, even drawing on the sanctorum strength of his divine swords!
When he had reached to the middle of the stairs, very step that he had taken was so heavy that it was like he was fighting against his very own Thousand Weight Fall!
He did not know the passage of time but it seemed like an eternal time had passed before his thoughts were interrupted by the familiar voice of the blue stellar light, “You have reached the very top.”
When Yi Ping had lifted his eyes, he was looking straight at the blue stellar light and straight at the glowing animus of the Divine Pangu Armor.
Only sheer force of will had prevented him from collapsing on the platform!
He mustered all his wobbly strength to gasp out, “Who are you?…”
The blue stellar light reverberated, “Who am I? You have come all the way to ask me this? You should be concerned about the ultimate prize first.”
Everyone below could hear the reverberating voice of the blue stellar light but they were not able to hear Yi Ping so naturally they did not know what Yi Ping had said to provoke the blue stellar light to answer in this manner!
Yi Ping answered breathlessly as he struggled to stay on his feet, “Who are…you?”
The blue stellar light blinked, “You will have your answers very soon. Reach out to receive the Creation Universal Force, receive the mantle of the Great God Pangu and you will be transmigrated to the Great Beyond. Or alternatively you can leave with your group. Either way, the trials of the Stellar Sanctuary will end.”
Yi Ping murmured, “Transmigrate to the Great Beyond? But the conflicts between the Immortal Realm and the Desolate Immortals have not ended…”
