Paragon of Sin

Chapter 732 - 727: Soldier Of War Returned

oody air swarming around him, he still had exceptional presence. 

When Wei Wuyin arrived, Borus, who was chatting with a few upper-ranking soldiers of his Battalion, froze almost instantly. He removed his helmet, revealing his bushy brows, a pair of sharply shaped eyes, dark complexion, and a confused expression. He couldn ’t be said to be ugly or handsome, yet he was certainly memorable.

”How are you alive? ” Borus Yusang asked incredulously, his slightly gaping mouth and wide eyes were as if he just saw a ghost for the first time in his life. Seeing his disbelief, the other Ascended turned their attention to the human. A flash of hostility emerged in their eyes, but after seeing his halo matching theirs, that flash was replaced by noticeable bewilderment.

A human fought for them? 

Some of the Ascended here fought in the same portion of the Battlefield as Borus Yusang, so they were similarly taken aback. They saw Wei Wuyin die; his neck viciously twisted and a burst of mystic power eradicated his Sea of Consciousness! While they didn ’t have their spiritual sense enveloping them, they could see all this happening! 

Taking a step back, even if he survived that, how did he survive being at the epicenter of that explosive blast?!

”… ” There was a moment of silence. Yet Wei Wuyin faced this with a faint smile, now knowing exactly how he was scammed by Borus Yusang, including why he felt there was something odd. 

The tribute for entry into the Battlefield was not a Seed of War, it could be anything of a certain value, heavily dependent on a person ’s cultivation base and number of individuals. However, the key to activate the formation was to obtain a Mark of War and possess a Seed of War. According to Jing Jiu ’s memories, a Seed of War was the formative stage of an advanced level of Will/Intent, something called a Law. 

The value of a Seed of Law was exceptionally high. According to Jing Jiu, a Seed of War can be used in many ways, or developed into an actual Law of a cultivator, something that required immense talent and incredible comprehension that couldn ’t even be described. If done, it was rumored, not verified, that one could become a Heavenly or Ascended Saint. He wasn ’t certain which. 

There was no force in their right mind that would offer a Seed of Law of any kind as a tribute. This was especially so for its main function. If refined, a cultivator could temporarily elevate their state of perception and grasp Intent to a higher level. With the right opportunity, they could reach the state of an Awakened Mystic Intent or comprehend World Heart Intent. This was godsend for any Demi-Mortal Lord! 

Furthermore, Borus Yusang wasn ’t aware of it, but this wasn ’t an artificial Seed of War gained through the War Spirit, but a naturally-formed, absolutely genuine Seed of War formed by an actual cultivator through comprehension. It was ten times more effective! Perhaps even more!!

Wei Wuyin didn ’t fault Borus Yusang for his greedy actions. He saw an opportunity and took it, but Wei Wuyin wasn ’t going to simply allow him to have his cake. He waltzed towards the giant and ’looked ’ at him. 

Borus Yusang was startled inwardly, unable to grasp what was happening, but he had some fear towards Wei Wuyin. That explosion earlier killed Cai Liuyang, and he didn ’t think he could survive. If Wei Wuyin decided to join the human camp and targeted him with similar means…

”My tribute, I ’d like to change it before its submitted. ” Wei Wuyin only said these words as he walked to Borus Yusang, just three meters between them before he stopped. His manner of speaking wasn ’t haughty or subservient, just succinct.

Borus Yusang had to calm himself. The others were confused because they weren ’t aware of his actions, but he wouldn ’t be able to hide this if Wei Wuyin brought it to the surface. As for acting against Wei Wuyin, a person that survived that explosion and killed a top-tier Demi-Mortal Lord? The thought never crossed his mind, yet he was still unwilling to sacrifice this chance.

Unfortunately, he had to abide by Mystical Oaths he ’d swore to follow certain rules, such as not acting against a soldier without sufficient cause and following protocol. One of these protocols was the right of a soldier to reclaim their tribute and offer another if it hadn ’t been officially submitted yet. 

He looked at Wei Wuyin and his fists clenched slightly, a tension in his mind was forming. In the end, he sighed in his heart. He earned enough in this Battlefield. From his self-calculated gains, he could exchange his own Seed of War from the War Spirit. He firmly nodded, ”When we return from the War Spirit ’s Soul Bestowing Ceremony. ”

However, Wei Wuyin wasn ’t as ignorant as before in regards to the ways of the Battlefield thanks to Jing Jiu ’s memories. ”I fear I won ’t get that chance. So I ’ll have to ask you to do so now, ” was his deadpan response. 

Borus Yusang ’s expression changed slightly, his upper-lip twitching slightly. When did this person become so learned about the Battlefield? It seems his true purpose was to kill Cai Liuyang. How unfortunate for such a beauty to die by the machinations of her own race. He didn ’t even have Wei Wuyin swear any oaths…it was perfectly timed, perfectly executed. 

’Was it a Heavenly Seer? ’

A cold shiver was sent down Borus Yusang ’s long spine.

”Fine. ” He waved his hand and a barrier of mystic energy encapsulated them.. That day, an illustrious Demi-Mortal Lord obediently handed Wei Wuyin back his possession, a mere mortal.
