Paragon of Sin

Chapter 214: Duke Zhaos Invitation

appened, Wei Wuyin ’s eyes opened as he watched the Shadow-Blight Hawk fly away. He had a slight pout, a little frustration in his eyes. ”I didn ’t think this minor character would catch the bait. Where ’s Xue Duan? ” He frowned a little. While he hadn ’t invested much into his plan, he hoped to have the initiative with Xue Duan.

’Xue Yifei…the Blessed…Bloodforge Continent… ’ He closed his eyes once more and made some brief calculations using his two minds. Only then did his pouting expression dissipate into a tranquil smile. ”This might be a little dangerous. ” When those words left his lips, a wisp of excitement flashed within his eyes.

He looked into the sky, his Celestial Eyes peering until he saw a Void Gate levitating above the skies. This Void Gate was housed in a crimson-colored tower, and it served as the residence for the guardian of the Bloodforge Continent.

Wei Wuyin learned that these towers were the homes for the resident guardians, and Xiang Ling, Fairy Blessed Spirit, was the guardian selected by the Myriad Monarch Sect for the Myriad Yore Continent. Her cultivation base was sufficiently powerful to oversee the entire continent and ensure its safety in the case of potentially continental-threatening conflicts.

A strand of spiritual force left his glabella and flashed upwards into the sky. It carried with it a spiritual transmitted message for the guardian of this continent. After sending this, his eyes looked towards the building that Xue Yifei was situated. An idea formed in his mind as he wanted to test out his theory. If it didn ’t work, then at least he ’ll have a breathtakingly beautiful woman by his side.

In the sky, the Bloodforge Tower. A middle-aged man sat cross-legged as he held an astral stone within his hand. The pure, refined astral essence within was being ceaselessly extracted and absorbed, causing all sorts of astronomical phenomena to erupt, such as glittering stars that appeared and vanished without order and a gorgeous aurora borealis above.

He was called Qi Lang, and he was the assigned guardian of the Bloodforge Continent. As he was quietly cultivating, a strand of spiritual force penetrated the protective wards through a specific method and arrived.

Crush!

Startled with a heart-pounding jump, he clenched his fist as his eyes flashed into battle readiness, causing him to crush his astral essence within his grip. The astral essence erupted and started to wildly escape, enriching the immediate vicinity temporarily. He did not expect to receive a transmission directly, so he was quite skittish. It was only after he received the secret code and orders within that his heart inevitably calmed down.

Biting his lips slightly, he didn ’t think he would be called so soon. Two years ago, Wei Wuyin ’s subordinate, Su Mei, had approached him and offered a deal. This deal was so sweet, salivating, and tempting that he couldn ’t reject it even if the requirements were harsher. In return, all he had to do was to listen to all orders given, as long as it didn ’t break sect rules. While he was a little uneasy at first, he truly could not decline. When has there ever been an Alchemist that could offer such extraordinary benefits without blinking an eye?

Giving in to his greed and heartfelt desires, he was now a subordinate of Wei Wuyin. This wasn ’t an issue at all until the first order came that ordered that he doesn ’t record or report his arrival on the continent immediately, and to wait a full year before doing so. This wasn ’t directly against the rules, and he wouldn ’t be punished if found out, but he guessed Wei Wuyin ’s intentions from this.

Now, receiving this transmission, his heart grew cold. He didn ’t think Wei Wuyin would be this type of individual. But he didn ’t dare to delay. While Wei Wuyin could give him this deal, he could similarly destroy his position, status, self, family lineage, and reputation with ease. The Ji Clan was a prime example of this.

”This is the fate of those who accept bribes from outrageously powerful people, ” he lamented in his heart before he stood up, took a deep breath, and left the tower. His flight path was directly towards the Xue Country ’s Royal Capital!

Chen Xiaowei stood outside Wei Wuyin ’s door. ”Heavenly King Wei, I have a letter for you. ”

Wei Wuyin opened the door. He revealed a slightly indifferent smile as he said, ”I know. Let ’s go. ” He swiped his hand over his face, once more creating his faceless mask that disguised his features.

Chen Xiaowei was somewhat taken aback by Wei Wuyin ’s response. She thought for certain that Duke Zhao would earn his ire for such an arrogant announcement and summons. That being said, she didn ’t dare to refuse. She had already thrown her lot in with Wei Wuyin, and she was going to wholeheartedly follow him.
