Following the first guillotine blade, the rest began falling one after another, a metal clamor filling the air.
“Get ready. The one-minute countdown begins now.” Without giving Tang Wulin and the others even a moment to digest the situation, Shen Yi began counting down.
The gears of Tang Wulin’s mind began turning. “We need to cross through the guillotine gates within thirty seconds. The shortest path has six gates… Gu Yue, test the power of the guillotine blades.”
Having a cool head was essential to passing such trials.
While Xie Xie was eager to speed through the gates, Xu Xiaoyan stared at them pale-faced.
Gu Yue was just as calm as usual, and following Tang Wulin’s order, she held out her hand and turned her palm to the sky. Blue light condensed in her hand, forming a two-meter long icicle that she shot through the bottom of the guillotine.
The guillotine blade fell, instantly turning most of the icicle into a fine powder while splitting the thickest part of it into two.
“The descent of one blade produces about three thousand kilograms of force,” Gu Yue announced. Her precise analysis was only possible because of her spiritual connection with the elements.
“Can you do it?” Tang Wulin asked.

“Ten... nine... eight...”
Shen Yi had begun the final countdown. They only had a few seconds left before the trial started.
Tang Wulin sucked in a deep breath. There was no time left to change the plan. Gu Yue approached his back and quickly mounted him. With a wave of her hand, green lights enveloped Tang Wulin, Xie Xie, and Xu Xiaoyan.
Paralyzed by fear, she just stared at the guillotines.
“Xiaoyan, don’t be afraid,” Gu Yue said. “You go first. I’ll use the earth element to hold the guillotine blades up and we’ll follow right behind you. All you have to do is run through quickly.”
Xu Xiaoyan clenched her jaw and nodded.
“Three... two... one... begin!”
With Shen Yi’s declaration, the third trial began.
Gu Yue chanted quietly, her hands raised toward the sky. She only managed to stay pressed close to Tang Wulin’s back by using her legs. They straddled hi
