Who made him cultivate immortality!: Chapter 6

Lu Yang and Meng Jingzhou squatted on the ground, using a dagger to dig a hole and buried the bottom of the ladder in it, stomping the earth to compact it.

Lu Yang kicked the ladder, but instead of moving, it vibrated back, numbing his right foot.

“Not bad, very firm. I’ll try it first; if I succeed, then you follow.”

“No problem,” Meng Jingzhou nodded.

Lu Yang rubbed his hands, quickly climbed up the ladder in a few strides, and when he reached the bend that was parallel to the fiftieth step, he cursed silently.

He forced himself to look straight ahead and not down, inching forward like a caterpillar.

The crowd on the steps gawked as Lu Yang approached the fiftieth step.
What they saw was a giant ladder planted firmly in the ground with a ninety-degree bend at the top, leading directly to the endpoint—the fiftieth step.

The crowd hadn’t paid much attention to Lu Yang and Meng Jingzhou setting up the ladder, but rather focused on reaching the fortieth step themselves.

Banbone, the fastest among them, had reached the forty-ninth step, but crossing the fiftieth seemed like an impossible chasm, feeling like a mountain weighing him down.

Then he watched as Lu Yang crawled past him and reached the fiftieth step.

Lu Yang made it through without mishap, completing the trial.

Meng Jingzhou followed, also passing the trial.

The first and second place were thus determined.

Meanwhile, outside Heart-Questioning Mountain, disciples of the Questioning Dao Sect were in disarray.

“Don’t hold me back, I have to teach these two a lesson today, I promise I won’t kill them!” Dai Bufan’s muscles bulged, like a bear whose honey had been stolen.

His junior brothers and sisters hurriedly tried to dissuade him:

“You can’t fight, Elder Brother Dai!”

“You must remain calm, Elder Brother Dai.”

“If something happens to participants during the trial, it would tarnish our sect’s reputation!”

“Bullying the younger generation isn’t good for your reputation, Elder Brother Dai!”

“Elder Brother Dai, don’t forget, the third trial is a test of the heart in seeking the Dao; you mustn’t get angry!”

Dai Bufan calmed down after the last remark.

“…No, the third level is to test them, not me!”

But chaos ensued again among the disciples of the Questioning Dao Sect.

Helin, feeling a bit more settled, retracted back into the river, no longer troubling the two.

Perhaps inspired by the successful collaboration of Lu Yang and Meng Jingzhou, the disciples participating in the trial cried out one by one and finally surged to the fiftieth step.

Banbone was the first, followed by people who were unknown to Lu Yang, all of whom had been behind him, with Lu Yang unaware of any special characteristics of their spiritual roots. Lastly, there were a few with dual spiritual roots, all of whom Lu Yang had seen before.

The remaining people kept trying, but could not make any progress. They even wished to descend the mountain and use the ladder made by Lu Yang and his companion to reach the fiftieth step, but the descent was just as pressuring, and their bodies could no longer move up or down a single step.

“The third trial is over. Those left on the mountain have lost their qualifications,” Yunzhi announced coldly, instructing Dai Bufan to escort the people down.

Heart-Questioning Mountain’s pull could not be removed by mere mortals, not even by Dai Bufan. To retrieve people from the mountain, one would have to climb it step by step against its oppressive force.

Dai Bufan glared fiercely at Lu Yang before beginning his climb up Heart-Questioning Mountain.

He climbed with ease to the fiftieth step.

Seeing Dai Bufan do so easily what they had struggled to death for, the newly passed disciples felt a profound disparity.

“There’s nothing difficult to understand. You’re only fourteen or fifteen years old. Even if your clans support you and you’ve been introduced to cultivation early, your understanding of the Dao and of immortality is as vague as a reflection in water or a shadow in a mirror,” Yunzhi explained.

“Cultivation is also about cultivating the heart. As you progress in your cultivation, climbing Heart-Questioning Mountain will not be as difficult.”

Yunzhi seemed to remember something at the last moment, adding symbolically, “Congratulations to the new disciples!”
With a wave of her delicate hand, and the tinkling of bells on her wrist, mist rose and formed into clouds to carry everyone aloft.

Lu Yang, standing on the cloud and seeing the ground recede further and further beneath him, swallowed hard, feeling his heart rise to his throat.

Darn it, cultivation is thrilling.

Yunzhi stood atop the cloud, directing the juniors below to finish up their tasks: “You’ve worked hard today. Once you’re finished, you may continue with your own affairs.”

The juniors responded in unison, then began dismantling and moving the ladder that Lu Yang and his companion had created.
A ladder on Heart-Questioning Mountain… what an unusual situation.

On the cloud, Lu Yang didn’t dare open his eyes, but hearing the others excitedly appreciating the scenery, his curiosity overcame him, and he opened his eyes to an overwhelming vista.

A mighty mountain stood amidst a range, a sharp precipice reaching into the heavens, surrounded by eight other mystical mountains, with layers of peaks outside, encapsulating the core nine mountains.

The mountains layered upon one another resembled a blooming lotus flower, inspiring awe in the onlookers.

A veil of mist enveloped the nine peaks, adding to their mystique.

Yunzhi said blandly, “The Questioning Dao Sect’s core consists of nine mountains. The central mountain, where the Sect Leader resides, is called Tianmen Peak. The other eight mountains are under the control of the eight elders, each specializing in different areas, just as the functions of these mountains vary.”

“Other mountains serve as trial grounds for the sect, extensions for the elders’ mountains, areas for disciples’ cultivation, and some dangerous places where insufficient cultivation leads to death… It’s not something that can be explained in just a few words. You can explore them gradually in the days ahead.”

“Cultivation is all about fate. In the coming month, you are free to roam within the Questioning Dao Sect, explore the mountains, visit the scripture library, seek advice from elder brothers or the elders. After a month, you must choose an elder as your master, assuming, of course, that the elder agrees to accept you as a disciple.”

Banbone, always inquisitive, asked, “Can we only pick an elder? Can we choose the Sect Leader?”

“It’s possible, but the Sect Leader rarely takes on disciples, so your chances are slim.”

Despite Yunzhi’s words, many still aspired to train under the Sect Leader.

The Questioning Dao Sect, one of the five great immortal sects on the Central Continent, bore a Sect Leader whose strength and status were unparalleled, a rare match in the cultivation world. Being under a master such as this guaranteed both obvious and hidden benefits beyond count.

“Soon, someone will guide you to your individual caves.”

“Lu Yang, Meng Jingzhou, you two stay behind.”

Who made him cultivate immortality!

“I’ve repeatedly emphasized that the atmosphere in the cultivation world is inherently skewed, not skewed by me. It’s said that history is written by the victors, so why am I still being slandered when I’ve won?” Lu Yang, the Sword Immortal, said in an interview with reporters, expressing great anger.
