Paragon of Sin

Chapter 67: Memories Kill Big Picture

brancy and lushiness.

”Thanks, ” Dai Fei said. While she sneakily took a glance at Jiao Ning ’s awed expression, she felt odd in her heart. Mere days ago, this woman had been a captive who had been subjected to two years of torture. She should, by all means, be twitchy or all sorts of damaged mentally, yet she seemed perfectly normal.

Whatever Wei Wuyin did, it was like he erased a portion of her life. She had never heard of an Alchemist capable of selectively removing memories, experiences, and all sorts of involuntary responses of the body. However, this woman had none of the common issues spring up when one was subjected to such disgusting and vile torture.

This was surprising, especially how she could easily enter a man ’s bed after all that and sleep without terrors emerging in her dreams. Even while they were engaging in such indecent acts, she had no discomfort and her reactions were authentic. At least, she couldn ’t find any irregularities, be it aura or expression.

”Sister Jiao, do…do you remember what has happened in the last two years? ” While she shouldn ’t ask, and she knew it, her curiosity had gotten the better of her as she probed. With Wei Wuyin currently out, she could sate her curiosity, but she still felt a pang of guilt.

Jiao Ning was slightly startled by the question. ”Two years? ” Her words were accompanied by an expression of contemplation, recalling from her memories. After a brief pause she said, ”Yes I do. Dai Qiuyue got into trouble, and we were all imprisoned until he came to rescue us. ” Her eyes gleamed with hot emotion when she thought about Wei Wuyin.

”… ” Dai Fei was silent. She felt it would be inappropriate to further probe in fear that it might trigger something. She already had a hint of guilt for asking, threatening a relapse of her experiences that Wei Wuyin had sealed somehow.

What she didn ’t know was that Jiao Ning ’s memories had been surgically removed from her mind. She could not recall what she did nor did she have memory of it in her consciousness.

Those memories can ’t and won ’t ever appear again.

While they talked, a violent scene was happening within the Jade Lotus Sect.

Ptuui!

A splash of crimson blood rained as a head was sent flying. The headless torso belonged to a middle-aged man with greying hair at his temples.

Su Mei held a saber, still dripping with fresh blood as she stood over this body. With her black, slim combat armor, her hair tied back, and her sharp gaze, she gave off a reaper-like feeling as she sent a man to hell.

She was careless a little as a splash of blood touched her left cheek. The gleaming color was ominous and terrifying. She casually wiped it away as she retrieved a transmission crystal.

”Target Eliminated. ” Was the message. Her eyes were the picture of serenity. She brought up a ball of flames and sent it towards the body and head, engulfing it entirely. This was the first target on her list.

Up in the Jade Lotus Sect ’s Grand Jade Palace, Qin Shui, the Vice-Sect Leader of the Jade Lotus Sect and Qin Feng, the Sect Leader and only Godlord of the Sect. They were quietly sitting on a cultivation mat.

Qin Shui had a pouting expression, a child-like expression she would only ever reveal before this brother of hers. ”Did you really give them permission to hunt and kill all those that had abused that woman? ” A hint of annoyance carried within her voice.

While she understood the reasoning from a certain perspective, giving Wei Wuyin the right to execute those of their sect left a bad taste in her mouth. They were one of the Five Grand Sects! Wasn ’t this an affront to their dignity? Moreover, if it were to get out that they offered up their own members without oversight, the spit and ridicule that would follow could drown their title.

After all, who would want to join, respect, or be loyal to a sect willing to abandon them at the drop of a hat?

Qin Feng was well-known as being cautious and passive. In fact, it was his most dominant personality feature. If not, when Wei Wuyin arrived in his arrogant glory, who wouldn ’t try to immediately eliminate such a troublemaker? Despite that, Qin Feng ’s talent and strength can sweep through the lands, so no one could truly criticize him to his face. Only this sister of his could express her dismay freely.

Qin Feng also understood her thoughts, but those members were irrelevant to the big picture. Wei Wuyin was a Lord Alchemist, capable of concocting sixth-grade alchemical products. These were products suitable for cultivation all the way to the Godking level. A single pill of that grade cost more than their lives in his opinion.

”I ’ve entered a contract with God Wei, ” Qin Feng announced.

Qin Shui grew shocked. ”Contract? For what? ”

Qin Feng flipped his palm and revealed a clear bottle. Within this bottle was a single pill that emanated a pure, white glow. It was something Su Mei had personally delivered to him before initiating her executions. It was only due to this that Qin Feng had swallowed his unwillingness to allow strangers to act within his borders.

Qin Shui ’s heart shook. ”Is…is that?! ” She reached out subconsciously, nearly touching the bottle. Even while contained with that bottle, how could she not recognize the Jade Qi emanating from the pill.

Qin Feng nodded, a slight smile on his face. ”This is a sixth-grade Jade Spirit Pill. ” With this, his sister would have no objections. A Jade Spirit Pill was a cultivation pill. When consumed, the dense and refined, yet incomparably gentle, Jade Qi within the pill can be absorbed and increase, if not guarantee, one ’s chances of giving birth to a Heart of Jade Qi.

”A…a…but… ” Qin Shui stammered. While they had Lord Alchemists, their success rate with this pill was abysmal. Out of the last twenty years and more than a thousand attempts, they ’ve only succeeded making two. On top of that, they were both low-quality pills!

While products as a whole tier were divided by grades, their quality was further divided into low, high, and peak. The higher the quality, the less impurities and energies contained with, the more effective and miraculous the product was. For example, a low-quality Jade Spirit Pill can directly increase the chances of transforming a cultivator ’s Heart of Qi by ten percent, regardless of being a man or woman.

While high-quality was forty-percent and peak-quality was ninety-percent. And, this was INCREASED chances, not factoring in your own personal efforts and strides towards your goal. Furthermore, for those who have Heart of Jade Qi, this could be used to help Qi reach its Sublime state faster than normal essence cultivation, helping Mortal Gods at the Sixth Phase to ascend to the Seventh Phase.

Qin Feng uncorked the bottle and a pure jade mist swiftly filled the entire room. They both simultaneously took a deep breath as their Hearts of Qi were stimulated by the aroma.

”It ’s high-grade! ” Qin Shui exclaimed, her heart was wildly racing away. ”No wonder, no wonder. ” She no longer dared to pout nor express her thoughts. In fact, her previous feelings towards Su Mei slaughtering these men were that she wished there was more later, so they can extort another pill. This thought shamelessly lingered in her thoughts.

Qin Feng corked the bottle and kept it. With a slyly grinned as he said, ”I ’ve made a contract with Godlord Wei. ”

Now that she understood the implications, she could only smile knowing her brother was rubbing it in her face and teaching her a tiny lesson. And that lesson was: ”See the bigger picture. ”
