Paragon of Sin

Chapter 390: Only One Left

sts were different from cultivators, capable of developing at absurd speeds if given proper nourishment while contradictorily having extremely long lifespans. They had latent powers of their ancestors, capable of awakening and pursuing that power that existed in legends. If given enough time, Xiao Bai ’s strength would eclipse his own.

As for its speed? Just from what he saw, he was certain that he couldn ’t catch up without hindering its movements with Spatial Lock, a unique ability to Spatial Resonance Phase cultivators. This left him a little bitter in his aged heart. 

He carelessly mentioned some information detailed in some ancient books, ”Ancient beasts said to be descendants of true dragons. They ranged from all types, but their lineage was rather consistent. ”

However, this baffled Shudao. His sharp gaze turned to Ji Changkong, ”Master, dragons? What true dragon lineage? They lived in this starfield? Where are they? ” When Shudao asked this in genuine curiosity, Ji Changkong was startled.

”… ” When he tried to recall the answers, for some reason, he realized that every lineage in the ancient records existed today, but the dragon lineage had seemingly vanished. There was not even a beastman that had an inkling of their bloodline. He couldn ’t help but ask himself, ”What happened to the dragons? ”

If these beings were the size of continents, how could they just vanish? 

He became thoroughly lost in thought, absentminded to the point he hadn ’t noticed an interaction brewing.

Wei Wuyin and Qing Qiumu had left the lake, floated to the lakeside. Xiao Bai neighed, blowing a wad of air toward the crowd with a cocky ’I bet you want to punch ’ smile. Then, he took off as quick as he came, leaving the two here.

Qing Qiumu circulated her various energies, calming her seething blood and lungs. She had regained her normal warm, motherly elegance that was quite calming to the eyes. Wei Wuyin still held a faint teasing light within his eyes, causing her to roll her eyes. 

Just as Qing Qiumu was about to greet her Ancestor and Qin Rui, a familiar figure approached alongside a female companion. When she caught sight of them, her expression changed into a frown. Long Chen and Lian Yu arrived side by side, they both had calm expressions. She didn ’t know how to react to them. Since the incident with Na Xinyi, her eyes to Long Chen ’s true nature had been revealed.

Long Chen took the lead, directing his gaze towards Wei Wuyin. As the Grand Prince, he carried himself with an important air. While Wei Wuyin might be the next King of Everlore in the starfield, that individual, in his mind, was merely a foil to the true characters of the future. Such as his master, Grand Monarch Wu Yu.

It was this consistent thought within his mind that allowed him to dismiss the overwhelmingly oppressive sensation that Wei Wuyin was spreading, believing him to just be an outrageously talented alchemist without a chance to reach the peak of the Martial Dao. Without that, he would eventually be nothing and can only be bypassed by him.

Long Chen indifferent swept his gaze across Wei Wuyin, looking at his neck that usually possessed his black ring. He asked, ”Where is my master? ” Long Chen felt that with this journey to the unknown, Wu Yu would certainly choose to accompany him rather than Wei Wuyin. 

Wei Wuyin gave Long Chen an amused look, as if looking at a clown playing elitist. Even though their statuses were so different, so vastly apart in influence, power, and reputation, he still brazenly clashed with him. He felt in the depths of his heart that Long Chen, this man that once brought shock into his heart, was uninteresting.

He focused his gaze on Lian Yu, ignoring Long Chen. According to Xiang Ling, Lian Yu was all he had left after he nearly caused the death of Na Xinyi by not actively protecting her. While Wei Wuyin had brought the calamity cake, Long Chen had eaten the misfortune cream himself. Now, Long Chen was left with Lian Yu.

When Lian Yu felt his gaze, her delicate eyebrows furrowed. She felt naked before his silver eyes, causing her body to grow restless and uncomfortable. But when she saw the light of surprise flit across those eyes, her heart shivered for some reason.

Wei Wuyin commented lightly, turning to Long Chen. ”You used your Grand Prince Request to bring her along? Are you sure that ’s a good idea? ” He genuinely asked, startling Long Chen.

After Wei Wuyin had taken the two other requests, the third regarding Na Xinyi needed to be changed, so he asked for an exception to be made for the expedition. It wasn ’t originally meant for just her, but Xiao Bing, Long Tingyu, Wu Baozhai and Lian Yu. They were all asked to be given a spot, which was agreed upon.

But that had all crumbled as Xiao Bing cultivated with a reborn Hong Ru and Long Tingyu was too distraught by the past events to come. Wu Baozhai, for obvious reasons, had refused his good intentions. This left Lian Yu, the only woman that stayed in his life.

”It ’s none of your business what I or she does. I ask you again: Where ’s my master?! ” Long Chen ’s eyes narrowed dangerously, feeling impatient.

Qing Qiumu was about to rebuke Long Chen for his attitude, as this was a public gathering and his actions were extremely disrespectful, but Wei Wuyin touched her shoulder and calmed her down instantly.

Wei Wuyin gave Lian Yu one last glance. Then, he replied: ”He ’s occupied. ” 

Wu Yu had decided to direct Wu Baozhai ’s cultivation after Wei Wuyin decided to refuse to concoct an Ever-Rebirth Pill. Instead, he said he ’ll let Wu Yu make up for his actions in the past and let Wu Baozhai reconstruct his body in the future, if she chooses to do so.

While a little angry at this, Wu Yu already had a guilty heart and inevitably agreed. Wu Baozhai was his bloodline descendant and the most suitable cultivator for the Imperial Heaven Qi Method, she ’ll make great advancements with his help. Therefore, he took her in as his disciple.

As for Long Chen? 

Wei Wuyin wasn ’t certain if Wu Yu had just given up after Long Chen challenged him to Imperial Combat. The likely result could ’ve left him resigned to Long Chen ’s eventual fate, deciding to abandon that avenue of possibility. Furthermore, with his help and Wei Wuyin concocting unique products suitable for the Imperial Heaven Qi Method, it was certain that Wu Baozhai would reach his level one day, and he might be able to exceed his previous limits once restored

Long Chen clenched his teeth, unbeknownst to him that his so-called master was teaching another to replace him. After all, Wu Baozhai was an innate ruler of the Grand Monarch Lineage unlike him, who snatched it from her.

Just as Long Chen was about to say something, a ray of brilliant silver light erupted from above, attracting everyone ’s attention.

A grey robed figure was revealed from the light. Tuo Bihan hovered above everyone, sweeping his stern gaze across everyone present, including Long Chen and Wei Wuyin. He announced, ”We ’ll be leaving a day early! Everyone, get ready ” His voice contained a hint of urgency.

Wei Wuyin was intrigued by his distress as he faintly smiled. ’What are you up to, little girl? ’
