Paragon of Sin

Chapter 260: You Should Leave

thought about the possibility that his abilities might provoke a calamity on his head, then that was understandable. The sect had three enemies, the neutral Alchemist Association, and the dominating and looming San Clan. But clearly, he had exceptional talents. Such as the ability to make seventh-grade pills with ease, yet besides the bare minimum for appearances and his own goals, he had never taken the initiative to support the sect.

This thought allowed Tuo Bihan to realize some things, but it was vague like an object in dense mist. He didn ’t know why Wei Wuyin would distance himself from the sect he was cultivating himself within. There was likely no one within the sect that displayed any ill-intentions to him nor would they. After all, he was a treasure that no one would want to offend.

”My second question: Long Chen. ” Wei Wuyin didn ’t actually ask a question, but those two words spoke volumes. His silver eyes never left Tuo Bihan ’s, the light within reflecting the clear meaning: ”I know. ”

Tuo Bihan stilled. He looked at Wei Wuyin with shock. That awkward silence was transformed into a solemn silence. It was only at this moment that Tuo Bihan ’s questions were answered. Long Chen cultivated the Grand Monarch Lineage ’s Imperial Heaven Qi Method. When he matured, he would become the rightful Grand Imperial Monarch of the sect.

Furthermore, he was an exceptional talent. He comprehended two Intents, Sword and Slaughter, achieved a feat only accomplished by the Sacred Elven Queen and merging two Natal Souls, and had an impeccably impressive foundation with a Zenith Mortal State Astral Soul. With such pure and potent innate energies, rich combat experience, and the support of the Imperial Heaven Qi Method, he was destined to claim the Myriad Monarch Sect.

At this moment, it was nearly his birthright. As for how he obtained the Imperial Heaven Qi Method, the Grand Imperial Sages in the know had never tried uncovering this because it was irrelevant. That was because of how the Method is designed. Only those who ’ve cultivated the Imperial Heaven Qi Method can pass the quintessential energy required to cultivate it.

This meant that the fact he was cultivating it meant he had received the blessing of a former Grand Imperial Sage. Each Grand Imperial Sage was at least at the Timelord level, so they had mystifying means beyond their understanding. Regardless of how that Grand Imperial Monarch passed it on, Long Chen was its current legacy holder. Even if they wanted to claim the technique, it would do them no good. If Long Chen died prematurely, the lineage would fade once more.

They wouldn ’t give him explicit protection, but they would ensure that he wasn ’t neglected or killed by their enemies. That was the best they would or could offer due to the Myriad Monarch Sect ’s indiscriminate rules.

Tuo Bihan had long since learned of the incident on the Myriad Monarch Sect. In fact, all the Grand Imperial Sages did. It was well-documented in Xiang Ling ’s report, and it detailed how Long Chen was nearly killed but due to Xiang Ling ’s interference, he survived. At the time, she had only acted because of her future disciple, Long Tingyu, but the fact remained: Wei Wuyin nearly killed Long Chen.

There was no way someone who would one day become the Grand Monarch, an existence that had always been notoriously arrogant, lofty, and too proud to allow their enemies to exist beneath the same sky. There was a possibility that Long Chen harbored intentions to kill Wei Wuyin to this day.

”There ’s nothing I can do. But I understand now. ” Tuo Bihan wasn ’t an inexperienced youngster or lacked intelligence, while Wei Wuyin hadn ’t asked a question, the very existence of Long Chen was a question. But there was an issue that he was confused about.

”Why don ’t you kill him yourself? ” His words lacked subtlety. If Wei Wuyin wanted to kill Long Chen while he was still maturing, it was entirely possible. Not only would he eliminate a possible enemy, but he could easily dispel the act with ease. As a matter of fact, he didn ’t even need to do it by his own hands.

”… ” Wei Wuyin realized Tuo Bihan was ignorant of Wu Yu ’s existence. If he was aware of it, there was no way he would say such a silly question. Wei Wuyin would ’ve long since rid himself of Long Chen at the first possible moment if possible. Then he would shape the Myriad Monarch entirely in his own image.

”The founder, Wu Yu, is currently with him. ” He didn ’t hesitate to explain, revealing Wu Yu ’s existence to Tuo Bihan. While Wu Yu might want to keep his identity a secret, Wei Wuyin had no obligation to him.

”Hahaha… ” Tuo Bihan laughed, clearly feeling as if he just heard a joke. His wrinkled face was smiling and shaking his head. After all, Wu Yu was ancient. He was literally ancient. The King of Everlore ’s Era wasn ’t yesterday. It was over eight thousand years ago. Even the strongest Astral Core Realm expert could only live a little over fifteen hundred years without external support. How could he be alive? How could he possibly be alive?!

”Old man, stop laughing. He ’s alive. He ’s within that ring on Long Chen, guiding him since the Myriad Yore Continent. They ’ve been together for at least two decades. I ’ve talked to him personally. ” Wei Wuyin said with the flattest tone.

”… ” Tuo Bihan froze mid-laughter. He reeled, ”how?! ”

Wei Wuyin shrugged, ”He ’s currently in some strange Spiritual Form. His current body consists of the essential energies, such as mental energies with a sea of consciousness, spiritual energies derived from cultivation, and essence power. I don ’t know how he can do this, but he lacks a physical form. It ’s as if he transformed into an Astral Soul. It ’s beyond odd. ” His explanation caused Tuo Bihan to gawk, his head and eyes flicked down as he tried to find Long Chen below.

He knew that Long Chen obtained the Grand Monarch Legacy from someone, but to think it was the Founding Monarch?

”He ’s reached the realm beyond the Astral Core Realm in his life, the Mystic Ascendant Realm. That realm might have a far longer lifespan and other life-securing methods than the Astral Core Realm. If my assumption is correct, the Astral Core Realm is the only realm where mortal limits exist. ” Wei Wuyin didn ’t want to outright say he could be an Immortal, but he surely wasn ’t off from being one.

”He doesn ’t have a physical body? ” Tuo Bihan paused, his shining gaze halting.

”That ’s what I think. That or his physical body is sealed within an independent realm with the Gateway being the unassuming ring. ” Wei Wuyin guessed. If Wu Yu heard what he had just said, he would reel in utter shock and horror. Wei Wuyin ’s guess was completely right.

A Gateway Door was necessarily an immobile existence nor was it restricted. A common storage ring with a hint of spatial energy could be considered a minor Gateway. After all, they were perpetually linked to a separate space. The only difference was the development and compositional nature of both spaces. One is artificial and exists within a separate layer of space, the other isn ’t and exists on this layer.

”Are you certain? ” Tuo Bihan sought confirmation once more. Wei Wuyin nodded. They stayed silent for a long while, and then he looked at Wei Wuyin and said with the utmost seriousness: ”It ’s best if you leave the sect. ”

”?! ”
