Paragon of Sin

Chapter 686 - 681: Free

was that it was fair between men and women without distinctions. So the benefits of being their dual cultivation partner was attributed heavily, including their personal potential. Who knew? 

The entire ranking was shrouded in a gloomy shadow.

”Hey! ” Yue Songli called out from inside the room.

Wei Wuyin snapped out of his thoughts and turned, seeing her exquisite figure and pink eyes observing him. ”The door ’s open, ” he said.

Yue Songli bit her lower lip anxiously, her barefoot right leg moved slightly. As she lifted her painted toes upwards, she paused and her leg froze, shivering a little. 

Wei Wuyin saw the hesitation in her eyes and body language. With his Celestial Eyes, he once again inspected her room, including the walls. ”Are you restricted by a formation to leave? ” He couldn ’t see all the formations, so he wasn ’t aware if there was. He had to be cautious. If there were formations that would activate upon her attempting to leave, then he might be in danger.

KREEEE!!!

BOOOOOM! BOOOM! BOOOM!!! 

BOOSH! KREEEEE! SUUUUUUUUBOOOOOSH!!!

The sounds of fighting and Bai Lin ’s rampage resounded. She was active. Wei Wuyin ’s spiritual sense was sent outwards, and his senses were immediately immersed in scarlet-golden flames that were flooding the halls. 

His expression changed. With haste, he retreated back to the room. The nirvanic flames were like a raging tsunami! It came from around the corner at a mind-boggling speed. Wei Wuyin arrived before Yue Songli, much to her surprise, and her eyes noted the nirvanic flames incoming. Her heart raced.

She felt lethal danger. A heat had already crept on her delicate skin, singed by its temperature. A wisp of horror emerged in her eyes. She wanted to retreat in fear, find a place of safety, but Wei Wuyin was faster. He wrapped his arm around her waist, and she felt the room spin. 

WOOOOSH!

The nirvanic flames burnt the two corpses into ash, burned the ash into nothing, and then rushed into the room to engulf the two. 

Yue Songli exclaimed in a soft, panicked scream as she saw the flames arrive before her. But a gentle warmth wrapped her body, her head pressed against a strong, firm chest by a steady hand. Despite her fear, her emotions settled down. She went absentminded as the scent of a man blasted into her nostrils. 

”… ”

’The flames? It ’s not…burning me? ’ Yue Songli could see flames at the corner of her eyes, flowing across the chest of the young man, engulfing them whole, and her room was enveloped in its raging power. When the hand relented its hold on her head and waist, she freed herself to observe the handsome visage of the man who held a faint smile at close proximity. 

Wei Wuyin looked away, observing the flames, ”I almost forgot. ” 

He had almost forgotten about Bai Lin ’s Nirvanic Flames. The instructions he gave her was to not harm the structure, those with his aura, and those captives. Her Nirvanic Flames were deeply connected to her existence, and she could distinguish as she wished. If she wanted, she could have her flames emit life-infused flames or death-inducing flames at will, to choose who was subjected to either.

If he hadn ’t reacted, he would be courting burnt ash right about now, not a heaven-shaking beauty. Especially since Yue Songli ’s powers were restrained. 

Yue Songli was still somewhat absentminded. She had never had a man embrace her so fiercely before, and she couldn ’t fathom how they were standing inside flames that didn ’t burn them. In fact, she felt her body being infused with wisps of life energies. It wasn ’t powerful enough to extend her lifespan, but she could use it to heal injuries. 

The dual events left her speechless. 

Before she could even react, a hand grabbed hers.

”Let ’s go! ” Wei Wuyin said. He was on a clock. He needed to find what he was looking for before the Ascended and Bai Lin engaged in further battle, likely destroying the structure from inside out. While Bai Lin ’s flames weren ’t melting the structure deliberately, she might not be able to choose freely in a few moments.

He didn ’t have time for Yue Songli ’s mental struggle to choose freedom at the cost of risking herself. He ’d choose for her. With that, he pulled her forward, and then flew through the raging flames. 

Yue Songli was brought along. There was no formation that activated to prevent her escape. The door was all it was, and beyond a certain limit of the room, she was unable to exert her strength without the formations retaliating. But with the door open, with the guards dealt with, there were no other restrictions present that would stop her from walking out. At least, the ones externally. The ones in her heart were still there. 

But that strong hand that brought her along by her own, braving the flames that she felt fearful of with a smile and utmost confidence, left those internal struggles buried, replacing her long suppressed hope. As for that hope? It was now within her heart as a source of light. 

’Am I…really going to be free? After hundreds of years? Am I finally…Am I finally… ’

When she passed the doors, exiting into the outside, her eyes grew misty until tears fell.. The image of the tall, dark-haired, firm back figure of the man bringing her away admist scarlet-goldem flames was etched into her memories forever.
