Sky Mountain was still covered in boundless snow.
On the mountain path, a group of cultivators was walking upwards. It was Ye Futian and the rest. As they ascended, their speed gradually dropped because the pressure was becoming larger and larger.
Han Lan, the young man from Taixuan Mountain, asked Ye Futian, "How long do we need to reach there?"
They had already been walking on Sky Mountain for quite a long while, and yet they still could not see the end, just like the previous time. Since Ye Futian had been to Sky Mountain, he should know the answer.
"I can't tell. If you want to reach the peak of Sky Mountain, you should not talk about how long you need. As we go higher, the pressure we experience will increase. The last bit will be the hardest," Ye Futian replied.
"You look so relaxed." Nan Yu from Nantian House glanced at Ye Futian.
"I have been here for many times, so clearly it'll be easier for me." Ye Futian smiled.
Nan Yu glanced coldly at Ye Futian, and some faint evilness could be seen in his eyes. He was affected by the evil thoughts on Sky Mountain and felt somewhat manic.
Apart from him, the rest felt the same as well. As the group continued their ascent, more and more people could no longer endure the pressure and chose to leave Sky Mountain.
Chu Shang also looked at Ye Futian who was walking with ease and looked calm. The influence Sky Mountain had on him was indeed minimal. Apart from him, Hua Qingqing also did not seem to have encountered any difficulty as she walked in the dancing snow. Although Hua Qingqing was advancing with the others, she appeared to be alone by herself, like a plum flower blooming in the snow.
This caused everyone from the Barren State to have a strange feeling. They would not think that they were weaker than the two, but why did Ye Futian and Hua Qingqing look so relaxed? If the two really had mastered the secrets of Sky Mountain, they would have discovered it long ago.
The group passed through regions after regions and had already been on Sky Mountain for a few days. It was extremely difficult to climb the mountain, so the number of cultivators in the group had been decreasing consistently. At the moment, there were only over ten people left and they no longer looked as imposing as they were at the start of the climb.
Their speed was also decreasing. Even the geniuses from the major forces in the Barren State were more and more affected by the evil thoughts.
Du Ao from Sacred Fire Sect was still covered in a holy radiance to resist the coldness and pressure on Sky Mountain. However, an evil flame seemed to be burning in his eyes. He felt an extremely evil power seeping into his mind continuously, influencing him.
Suddenly, Hua Qingqing turned around and said softly, "The pressure and evil thoughts are both becoming stronger. We should give up." Everyone in the snow stared at her pure eyes which were still not affected by the evilness at all. Standing in the snow, she looked cold and ethereal.
"Since you can reach the peak last time, we can do it this time as well." Du Ao from Sacred Fire Sect walked forward. He suddenly reached out his hands and put them on Hua Qingqing's shoulders, and he stared at the flawless lady before him.
Hua Qingqing's body trembled slightly. At the instant when his hands touched her shoulders, she stepped back immediately. Her look turned cold at once as she stared at Du Ao and a freezing aura erupted from her body.
Everyone around looked at them with a strange expression. Chu Shang also glanced coldly at Du Ao. Although the evil will on Sky Mountain could indeed magnify the evil thoughts in everyone's minds, Du Ao was a genius from Sacred Fire Sect after all. He was bringing himself disgrace by doing such an act.
"Du Ao's right. Let's keep going," Nan Feng said emotionlessly. They would naturally not give up so easily. Hua Qingqing looked coldly at Du Ao, after which she turned around and continued walking.
An evil flame was burning in Du Ao's eyes as he gazed at Hua Qingqing's back. He was not totally affected by the evil thoughts. Instead, Hua Qingqing was very attractive to him in the first place.
This lady was born with a pure, flawless temperament which protected her from the evil thoughts. Perhaps this was also the reason why she could reach the peak of Sky Mountain.
Hua Qingqing was not only very beautiful, but she also had an extraordinary physique. If she could become his partner, it would be very beneficial to his cultivation of certain fire-elemental techniques. Such an exquisite lady was rare even in the Barren State.
Du Ao walked up to Hua Qingqing and asked, "You have an extraordinary physique. Are you talented in fire-elemental abilities?"
"Nope," Hua Qingqing replied coldly as she continued walking forward.
"Sacred Fire Sect had many unique techniques that are very suitable for you. Do you want to join us and cultivate?" Du Ao continued. The people around him all glanced at him.
"I guess he's just too free," Nan Yu sneered. Nevertheless, Hua Qingqing was indeed extremely pretty and attractive.
"Ye Futian!" Nan Yu shouted at the person in front of him. Ye Futian turned his head around and looked at him.
"Do you want to join Nantian House and become my subordinate? In the future, you'll become a general in Nantian House." As the group advanced on Sky Mountain, the impression Nan Yu had towards Ye Futian had also changed. It seemed to him that Ye Futian's willpower was very outstanding, for otherwise, he would not be able to endure till the moment. He was willing to give Ye Futian a chance to let him join Nantian House.
A direct descendant of Nantian House such as him would certainly have a high position in the family in the future and own many powers. For example, the people who had followed him to the Eastern Barren Territory this time were all generals from Nantian House.
"No, that's fine." Ye Futian smiled. Subordinate? Nantian House general?
"The Eastern Barren Territory lacks cultivation resources. Even though you are talented, your cultivation will still be delayed if you stay here. Because your talents are not bad, we are willing to let you join Nantian House. Do you know how many people in the Barren State dream of joining us? Those top nobles below the mountain all joined us willingly," Nan Feng also said as he stared at Ye Futian with a supercilious look. However, he felt that by saying this he was already giving Ye Futian much face.
He could not find a way to explain the position of Nantian House to the people in the Eastern Barren Territory. Perhaps Ye Futian would find out only after he went to the Barren State himself.
Ye Futian smiled and shook his head. "I am used to my own clan."
How could Nantian House compare with the Cottage?
He had big brother, third brother, the kind and gentle second sister, the clever sixth sister, and fourth and fifth brothers in the Cottage. Although Yi Xiaoshi was somewhat abnormal recently, he was still quite cute. Only that old guy... but Ye Futian could still barely tolerate him.
They wanted him to give up such a nice place and become a general in Nantian House.
"Why does everyone from the holy land of the Eastern Barren Territory not know the appropriate things to do?" Nan Yu remarked emotionlessly. He was clearly referring to Gu Dongliu and Ye Futian. Both of them had rejected the invitation from Nantian House.
Ye Futian thought that he was an idiot, but he was thinking of the same thing as well. Ye Futian just gave up the opportunity to join Nantian House. In the future when he realized what Nantian House was, he would regret it.
As the group continued forward, eventually there were only seven people left.
They were Ye Futian, Hua Qingqing, Nan Feng and Nan Yu from Nantian House, Chu Shang from Mortal World, Du Ao from Sacred Fire Sect, and Han Lan from Taixuan Mountain.
At the moment, their footsteps seemed to be extremely heavy, including Ye Futian. A gust of wind blew down from the sky and onto everyone's body. Even Nan Feng and the rest felt that they were almost reaching their extreme and could not hold on for much longer.
An extremely powerful aura was released from their bodies. Nan Feng and Nan Yu were covered in silver, dazzling armors, while Chu Shang's body was showered in a brilliant radiance as if she was a fairy from the heavens. Du Ao's body was covered with a fiery light, which at the moment seemed to have been corroded by the evil thoughts; only dark, evil flames were burning. Han Lan was releasing a wild aura as if he was a cold, fierce demon.
On the other hand, musical notes seemed to be dancing around Hua Qingqing's pure body which was showered in sacred light.
"It's not far away. If we persist for a while longer, we'll reach the top. Last time, it was like this as well. If we can break through our limits, we can reach the summit." Ye Futian's face was completely red, and a terrifying light was burning in his eyes as if he was in great pain. However, he still gritted his teeth and continued walking.
Hua Qingqing glanced at Ye Futian. He could trick everyone else but not her.
Ye Futian was only pretending to be in pain, but of course, she would not tell everyone that.
Their current location was still quite far from the summit. Last time, the Arhat intercepted Ye Futian and the rest right here. She knew well that these people would not be able to reach the peak, especially when Ye Futian was present.
Everyone tried to endure the pressure and their speed slowed further. The evil thoughts were everywhere, and they could even feel a monstrous Demon Bird appear in their minds.
Nan Yu frowned and asked Ye Futian, "How long do we need exactly?"
"Soon," Ye Futian replied with much difficulty.
After a while, the flames surrounding Du Ao turned into darkness. His look was filled with evilness, and his will could no longer take it.
"How long?" Du Ao also asked.
"Soon," Ye Futian said.
"How many times have you repeated that word?" The evil light in Du Ao's eyes blazed, and his tone was very threatening.
"We're almost at the top. Every step that we take now is as difficult as climbing the sky. You're the geniuses from the Barren State, so since I can endure it, I believe you can as well. If I can no longer take it, I'll quit," Ye Futian said. Du Ao gave a cold humph, and the others also did not know whether they should give up or not. Ye Futian and Hua Qingqing were both continuing.
Ye Futian sneered in his mind. Didn't they want to climb Sky Mountain?
Since this was the case, he would accompany them to the end.
They were all geniuses from the Barren State and thought that they were extraordinary. Ye Futian really wanted to see how long they could hold.
He sneered and continued advancing, keeping to an extremely slow speed so that the rest could follow him.
Suddenly, in the minds of everyone, a terrifying illusory Demon Bird appeared. It was as if the Demon Bird could attack their wills, causing them to be in great pain.
Giving a muffled humph, Nan Yu stopped and could not lift his feet anymore.
Ye Futian turned around and asked, "What is it?"
"Are we there yet?" Nan Yu stared at Ye Futian.
"Soon..." It was still the same reply.
Nan Yu stared coldly at Ye Futian, and his eyes were filled with blood streaks. He could not even remember how many times Ye Futian had said that word.
"Can you no longer persist?" A strange expression appeared on Ye Futian's face. "If you can't, don't force yourself as it will be dangerous. After all, you're an important person from Nantian House. If something were to happen to you..."
Dong. Nan Yu's eyes were filled with demonic red light, but he still took a step forward. An evil aura was flowing on his body, and even his look changed. Suddenly, he gave a muffled humph and blood flew from the corner of his mouth.
Nan Feng and Chu Shang looked at Ye Futian. Although they were affected by the evilness, they were still rational. They both felt that something was amiss. If they were to continue, they would eventually collapse!
