The disciples from the Hundred Flowers Valley Sect were scared out of their wits!
Their faces were pale with fright, and their mouths were wide open in disbelief.
“How is this possible? We’ve clearly closed the entrance to the eighth level. How did he get in?”
“If he disturbs her majesty’s cultivation, then we will be in big trouble.”
Several disciples paced back and forth anxiously; their foreheads covered in sweat.
Although the Empress of the Ruoshui Kingdom was their disciple in name, with her current status, strength, and influence, even the Hundred Flowers Valley Sect was under her rule. If she was interrupted while cultivating in seclusion, there would be some undesirable consequences for the sect.
The few disciples sucked in a breath of cold air as they thought about the situation.
“The few of you stay here. I’ll go and report the situation!”
The disciple in charge of the Hundred Flowers Valley Sect soared into the sky after he spoke and disappeared in the blink of an eye.
Inside the trial tower, on the eighth floor.
The face of the incomparably beautiful woman sitting in front of Lin An instantly turned pale, and she suddenly spat out a mouthful of blood.
The blood sprayed onto the ground in front of Lin An, giving him a fright. He hurriedly raised his head and looked at the woman.
To his surprise, Lin An saw that the woman who had been silent ever since he had entered the eighth floor was actually clutching her fair and soft chest.
Her face was deathly pale as one of her hands propped her up from the ground. Lin An also observed that there was still a trace of blood at the corner of her mouth.
He was instantly stunned, and he quickly asked, “What’s the situation?”
[Ding! The soul refining stage is complete. Congratulations to the host for successfully strengthening your soul by 100%!]
Abruptly, the success rate system notification sounded in Lin An’s ears.
The increased power from his soul neutralized the suppressive force from the tower of trials, and he gained the ability to move.
The woman’s face was still pale, and Lin An could not help but feel pity for her.
He hurriedly searched through the success rate system’s storage space to see if he could find anything that could treat her among the pile of treasures that he had obtained from his lucky draw.
After finding different combinations of medicine that could treat several kinds of injuries, Lin An hurriedly took them out from the success rate system’s storage space and walked towards the Empress.
When she saw Lin An’s movements, the Empress’s pupils suddenly contracted, and she was appalled.
Her eyes were instantly filled with fear, and her face became increasingly pale.
Ever since she had taken over the throne, this was the first time that the Empress had felt a trace of despair and helplessness.
However, Lin An remained calm as he sat down by her side.
He gently pried her lips and teeth and poured the medicine in his hand into her mouth.
The Empress’s heart suddenly thumped, and she was stunned!
“What… What is this? Why does it taste so mellow?”
When Lin An heard the Empress’s words, he picked up the medicine bottle and looked at it.
The label on the medicine bottle read, ‘Intermittent Mellow Cream.’
For the first time, Lin An doubted the effectiveness of the success rate system.
Intermittent ointment was traditionally applied for external use. What was the purpose of creating an alcohol-flavored version?
However, just as the Empress was marveling at the taste of the strange medicine, a mysterious power suddenly erupted from her mouth and rushed straight into her mind.
In an instant, the Empress’s entire mind went blank.
Her soul power had been greatly strengthened, and the injuries on her body had healed. Additionally, she had also broken through the final bottleneck in her cultivation technique.
“How is this possible?”
The Empress immediately cried out in surprise.
Only then did she realize that she could also speak!
When she looked at Lin An again, she couldn’t help but feel amazed!
She was very clear that the mysterious power she had just experienced was the effect of the concoction of medicine that Lin An had fed her.
Moreover, it was also because of the medicine that her soul had instantly recovered and allowed her to break through the bottleneck that she had been bitterly cultivating for several months.
‘How could there be such a miraculous thing in the world?’ The Empress muttered in her heart.
She couldn’t help but carefully examine Lin An again. After seeing him clearly, the Empress gasped!
He was only at the peak of the golden core stage, yet he was able to move freely on the eighth level of the tower of trials!
How terrifying was the strength of his soul?
“Are you taking part in the Hundred Flowers Valley Sect entrance trial?”
In the end, the Empress took the lead and gently questioned Lin An.
Her voice was very soothing, and it carried a hint of a calm and unruffled charm. Her brows were also very relaxed, and it appeared as if she could see through Lin An.
However, even though she was a woman of high status, her eyes couldn’t help but reveal a hint of admiration for Lin An’s amazing talent.
The Empress also saw a great deal of admiration in Lin An’s eyes,
When she followed his gaze and realized that it led back to her chest, she suddenly reacted.
The Empress had just realized that she wasn’t wearing any clothes!
An icy cold aura instantly spread out from her body and covered her entire figure. Finally, the cold aura stuck tightly to her body and turned into an opaque layer of ice crystal armor that covered her skin.
The ice crystal armor was carved with strange and complicated patterns, and under the contrast of the armor, the Empress looked even more stunning. It was as if she was the queen of the world of ice and snow!
At that moment, her face became tense, and a wave of mixed emotions rushed over her.
The reason why she had ignored Lin An after he had entered the eighth floor was because she had planned on killing him after breaking through her cultivation. There was nothing to fuss about with a person who was about to die.
But now, Lin An had saved her life, and he had also helped her breakthrough her cultivation.
When she stared at Lin An’s clear eyes, she recalled how he had poured the medicine into her mouth, and her originally cold and hard heart turned as soft as silk.
However, her heart was still conflicted, and she didn’t know what to do with him.
When Lin An saw the Empress going through her mixed emotions, he was a little stunned for a moment. It seemed that she had become even more beautiful.
Lin An faintly sensed the aura of a prominent leader emanating from the Empress, but the aura didn’t have any aggressiveness.
Instead, it made him feel that she was dignified, graceful, and magnanimous.
It was clear that the woman in front of Lin An could easily move people’s hearts. However, because she was too beautiful, many men couldn’t help but feel ashamed when they stood in front of her.
“Can you tell me how you came to the eighth floor? According to what I know, there should be a barrier at the entrance of the eighth floor of the tower of trials. A peak golden core stage cultivator like you shouldn’t be able to enter.”
With no hesitation, Lin An immediately bragged heroically, “How can a mere barrier stop my footsteps? As long as I have the desire, there’s no place in this world that I can’t go to!”
However, Lin An’s words weren’t exaggerated.
With the help of the success rate system, his growth speed had increased by leaps and bounds, and he even had the lucky draw function to accompany him. Therefore, he felt that anything was truly possible.
The Empress smiled and shook her head. She didn’t argue with Lin An over his bold statement.
Seeing that her reaction was average, Lin An naturally wanted to prove himself. He sized up his surroundings and headed towards the stairs that led to the ninth floor.
Just as he was about to leave, the beautiful woman called out to him.
“Since you’ve already passed the eighth level, there’s no need for you to continue with the subsequent tests. You can directly secure the entry qualification to the Hundred Flowers Valley Sect. Why do you need to go any higher?”
