Paragon of Sin

Chapter 319: Intentions

eak about the Heavenly Daos, he knew he was being observed and any admittance might attract its attention to knowing his true status.

Wei Wuyin did not feel like dying today.

”Apologies, I lost my train of thought. ” He turned to face the shocked and confused crowd with an apologetic smile. So many things had happened so swiftly that he had forgotten that this gorgeous nation-toppling beauty, Qingye Ying, had challenged him to an All-Alchemic Clash. 

”Alchemist Wei, do you accept? ” Qingye Ying ’s expression behind the veil was unable to be seen through conventional means, but Wei Wuyin could sense the faint smirk and vigorous confidence. It seemed his lapse of thought due to the incredible event had been misconstrued as fear or uncertainty. 

It ’s not like she was hiding her identity as the Princess of Everlore, a character that had taken an official step onto the path of the King of Everlore. In the eyes of those watching and those who were aware of both their existences, Qingye Ying was the rightful successor to his legacy. For those in the higher echelons, those who understood more about ninth-grade products, they knew only an Alchemic Astral Soul can create ninth-grade products. Any attempt by an Alchemist lacking this could only produce an impure-grade product.

Wei Wuyin felt this girl was quite interesting, but he was more interested in the motive for this. Since the very beginning of his ascent to prominence, the Alchemist Association ’s actions have been incredibly baffling. In fact, it seemed they had tried to lure him in and defeat him in some way to achieve this goal.

That seemingly bait-and-switch where his inability to pay would result in a single request. Moreover, it was as if they tried to play upon his rumoured ego to enter into an extremely unfavorable bet. They had even tried to capitalize on this again, having him challenged in front of all these young elites and leaders. It was a stage he couldn ’t possibly say no to nor did he feel like he needed to.

”Do I accept? I don ’t know, ” Wei Wuyin responded with a smile. His response caused these so-called young elites and leaders to be shocked, even Qingye Yun eyebrows twitched slightly before he tried to once more embody the picture of calm. 

Qingye Ying frowned, ”You don ’t know? ”

”That ’s right. I don ’t know. ” 

”… ” 

”… ”

That smile of his turned a little teasing as he finally followed up with, ”I don ’t know why I should. I also don ’t know why you want to challenge me. In truth, I don ’t even know why you think you possess the qualifications to challenge me without prior warning in front of all these people. ” Wei Wuyin instantly flipped the switch, not directly agreeing or allowing others to prey on his ego.

While he did have one, a clash with Qingye Yun wasn ’t what he wanted at the moment. Because…because he knew he would win with absolute certainty. He didn ’t know what Qingye Yun, Qingye Ying, or the Alchemist Association wanted with him, and he truly didn ’t want to be a part of their game of ’try, try again ’ until they finally got what they wanted. 

He disliked being passive unless absolutely necessary. Moreover, he was mulling over doing something he wasn ’t planning on doing: not accepting. If it was before the Blessed Reincarnator arrived, he might ’ve, no, he would ’ve immediately accepted. But now, he wasn ’t so keen on following his original plans to the exactness. 

”Qualifications? ” Qingye Ying was startled. Qualifications?! She had an Alchemic Astral Soul, she was raised by the Alchemist Association, the greatest force of the Dao of Alchemy within the entire Tri-Vision Starfield! It shouldn ’t be a question whether she had the qualifications to challenge anyone she wanted. It should be an absolute honor. In fact, the challenged party should ask themselves whether they had the qualifications!

Thus, beneath her veil, her nostrils flared slightly. It was so unbearably cute when a gorgeous woman became angry in a way that wasn ’t outright insanity or vile. It was that honest, righteous anger born from indignant emotions they release that made them so huggable.

Just as Wei Wuyin was about to continue, he paused for a moment. His eyes brightened considerably, ”I ’ll consider your challenge. We can discuss it at a later date. What do you say? ” This was clearly his attempt to keep the proceedings a little private and the details a secret from the world.

Just as he had expected, right before Qingye Ying could respond, Qingye Yun intervened!
