Paragon of Sin

Chapter 374: Chill of the Dark Void

rning he was going to retrieve Xue Yifei.

Xue Yifei ’s eyes brightened even more, intrigued by these major figures of the sect. These were characters that she might ’ve never been able to even see in her lifetime before. She nodded with a hint of joy. But she still wondered where Wei Wuyin was. She was surprised that he hadn ’t picked her up personally.

Yu Beimei stayed close to Xue Yifei, especially as her instructor. She was waiting for Wei Wuyin to arrive, so she could be judged on her work and receive her rewards. Considering Wei Wuyin ’s status, it will likely be extremely rewarding.

Woosh!

A dark light shot from the distance, causing Xiao Bai to neigh in joy at the familiar sight. Su Mei shot through the skies and arrived, landing next to Tuo Bihan, Xue Yifei, and Yu Beimei. She calmly swept her gaze by Yu Beimei, inspecting Xue Yifei briefly, and then turned to Xiao Bai who was moving very animatedly. 

She faintly smiled, reaching her hand out. Xiao Bai acted in the most practiced, most familiar manner and brought its large head forward to be caressed by Su Mei. After spending years with Su Mei, he had already recognized her as his true master. 

’It ’s her! ’  Long Chen was startled by Su Mei ’s arrival. He knew she was Wei Wuyin ’s female companion. Thinking about her being his female companion, a dark thought emerged in his mind. A thought to allow Wei Wuyin to experience what it meant for a woman to leave him for another. Those thoughts were festering and fueled by his memories of Lin Ziyan, Wu Baozhai, Hong Ru, and Xiao Bing. 

Xue Yifei had never met Su Mei before, so she observed this new woman who seemed overly familiar with Xiao Bai. She then recalled watching the Grand Spirit Trials and noticed her meeting Wei Wuyin. She was interested in who she was, especially the black ring that hung around her neck. She remembered seeing it around Wei Wuyin ’s during the All-Alchemic Clash.

”Lord Wei is currently preoccupied with some important matters. He ’s sent me to welcome you, ” Su Mei calmly explained. 

Tuo Bihan ’s eyes brightened. This was a good opportunity. ”I was intending to bring her around to meet some people, tour her around the mountains. ” 

Su Mei glanced at Tuo Bihan, clearly knowing his intentions. But she didn ’t object, ”If that ’s what she wants. ” As Xue Yifei was Wei Wuyin ’s concubine, she knew the level of importance she had to these old fogies and wily foxes. She was a perfect opportunity for others to establish closer relations than a mere subordinate or tool.

Na Xinyi was startled. ’That woman is here for Wei Wuyin? ’ She felt a sudden crisis of threat for some reason. Just as she thought this…

Pop!

An unexpected popping sound erupted in the surroundings, causing numerous heads to toss and turn in shock, trying to find the origin of the sound. Before they could react, however, a black sphere emerged directly above the Void Gate. From the Void Gate, streams of silver steam-like gas were entering the black sphere.

Woosh!

BOOSH!!

An object shot out of the black sphere, causing it to instantly close. The object was rapidly moving, smashing heavily into the ground and directly caused a twenty meter crater to form. Even the Void Gate below was toppled, having some cracks form on it as its silver radiance seemingly dimmed.

Fortunately, everyone present was an expert. They conjured numerous qi and astral wards, with Tuo Bihan reacting the fastest, shifting away the weaker members with a flick of his finger. He then brought everyone else not at the Astral Core Realm or under their protection away forcefully. Xue Yifei was protected by Su Mei ’s darklight ward, thoroughly defended from everything.

”Urgh… ” A faintly audible groan was heard from the crater. 

”What the hell was that?! ” An elder exclaimed, shocked by the abrupt popping sound and black sphere. But Tuo Bihan was familiar with both, realizing the possibility, he shot forward and arrived above the crater. When he saw the familiar figure laying in the crater, he couldn ’t help but arc his lips upwards.

He was just about to act when his eyes widened, ”The Chill of the Dark Void? ” His expression instantly distorted. He exclaimed with urgency, ”Everyone leave, NOW! ” His shout was fiercely explosive, but it was too late.

The faint eerie aura emitting from the figure started to permeate throughout the world, traveling extremely fast. 

As the closest, he was infected by the coldness first. He had to instantly conjure his Worldly Domain, suppressing the Chill of the Dark Void, but he found it incredibly difficult. This coldness was far, far greater than the coldness in their starfield ’s Dark Void. But the others weren ’t at his cultivation level, having it enter their bodies in the blink of an eye with no defense.

They shivered uncontrollably, many losing consciousness instantly.

Long Chen ’s mind boomed with a sense of crisis, causing his Imperial Slaughter Sword Astral Souls to react. He and the others were immediately shrouded in a very unique aura, containing a strange power that deflected the coldness. However, whether intentionally or subconsciously done, he hadn ’t shielded Na Xinyi. 

She immediately spiraled into unconsciousness, falling like a ragdoll.

The coldness touched Su Mei and Xue Yifei. When this happened, the figure within the crater opened his eyes revealing a silver radiance. The world erupted with cyan-colored light that traveled even faster than the Chill of the Dark Void. It swept the world, entering the bodies of everyone present, and vanished as swiftly as it emerged. It was as if it wasn ’t real to begin with.

Tuo Bihan was startled, noticing the coldness had left his body instantly. He looked towards Wei Wuyin then towards Su Mei and Xue Yifei, looking at the unassuming black ring that hung on Su Mei ’s neck. He had witnessed the cyan-colored flash, felt the light enter his body, and it had taken away the chill. He was utterly baffled.

What just happened?
