Paragon of Sin

Chapter 931: Among Us

ory shall be destroyed; all Trueborn associates will be slaughtered—with extreme prejudice.

A lesson must be taught.

A lesson MUST be learned.

”But to act with so many forces…for a single woman? ” The Soul Rumbling Saint couldn ’t help but point out with a light of confusion flitting through his eyes. Yue Songli was a Soul of Mysticism female, yes, her beauty was sufficient to reach number one of the Immortal Saintess Ranking before, yes, but sending six Earthly Saints and so many Demi-Mortal Lords?

It seemed too far-fetched. It didn ’t match up with reality. Even if you factored in their excessive caution in case the Ennea Hall Alchemic Saint took unknown precautions or the Soul Saint King might return. Either scenario, six Earthly Saints might not be enough with such preparations or geographical advantage.

Suspicious, the Soul Falling Saint added: ”Yue Songli ’s importance is either tremendous to them or they were simply excessive in their preparations, fearful of being a lion who carelessly loses their prey. ”

”We should investigate Yue Songli deeper, and find out what ’s special about her, ” the Soul Rumbling Saint suggested.

”If there ’s anything special, ” the Soul Falling Saint hammered. And clearly he believed Yue Songli was merely a heaven-toppling beauty, but beauties could not allow you to reach higher limits on the endless road of cultivation. They were merely distractions. His opinion was formed from his own experience and years, seeing numerous men shattered by these exceptional women, crushed and left feeling cuckolded by their choices.

As cultivators, obsessions were their strongest feature. It allowed them to endlessly cultivate in the pursuit of greater limits, tackling profound notions that exceed mortals in thought and essence, and stifle the loneliness needed to do so. It also made them easy to find a target of their affection, overly obsessing and visualizing a life beyond their means with this target. They would fight, kill, and agonize over this target ’s life, neglecting their own.

A distraction, often unhealthy.

”Forget Yue Songli; she ’s irrelevant as she is. We have more pressing matters to investigate, ” the Soul Saint King strongly stated.

”… ” The three went silent. A knowing tension developed amongst them. That was entirely right! Something far more important needed to be investigated.

A Soul Monarch must ’ve given the six Earthly Saints permission to enter the Soul Saint Domain, and even used a concealed Void Gate to do so. It wouldn ’t work out otherwise. Such planning was dangerous, and could ’ve been used to launch a devastating assault if the Ninestar Sainthall had ever attacked Trueborn.

They revealed one of their strongest trump cards, even ousting their possible spy, and risked six Earthly Saints. That said, it was abundantly clear that Yue Songli ’s situation was not ordinary. After all, their trump card and spy would ’ve been burned regardless of the result.

However, the Soul Monarchs weren ’t silent because of just that, but the knowing implication…

Chances were…amongst these three was the traitor!

”I ’ll locate the remnants of the Void Gate, you three stay here to watch over Yue Lixiang and Yue Songli, ensure there ’s no second wave. ” The Soul Saint King calmly instructed as he took this opportunity to depart with a flicker. The three Soul Monarchs remained silent, only assenting with nods.

As for inside their thoughts, they knew the Soul Saint King was clearly aware that the Void Gate in question was definitely destroyed, likely by the traitor to erase any evidence. While this might seem to be easily solved with oaths, Mythical Oaths were not like Spirit Oaths; they were unable to be used for upholding truths as Wei Wuyin had once done.

As for Spirit Oaths, they could be easily dealt with by beings at their level. And no one would ever know. Left with no choice, they now had a heavy investigation awaiting them. Not just towards them, but the other four Soul Monarchs with scepters!

What timing.

”Where ’s Zhang Ziyi? ” Wei Wuyin ’s heart had calmed down after the situation had finally concluded. All the chips had been pushed to his side, and it was all too perfect. While reminded of the intensity of the fight, aware of his own weakness, he was also aware of his own strength—specifically his external strengths, Zhan Zheng and Wu Yu—and the unreliability of other forces.

Ma Zheng was helping seal away the captives with additional seals, a wisp of anticipation leaking as he wondered who each of these Earthly Saints were, when Wei Wuyin asked this. His expression suddenly became somewhat gloomy.

”The Radiant Jade True Queen suffered an extremely heavy rebound after the Soul Saint King forcefully severed our connection. She went unconscious, and I safely placed her into my Internal World. ” As Ma Zheng said this, he waved his hand to project an unconscious Zhang Ziyi via a Spiritual Projection Screen.

”Unconscious? ” Wei Wuyin was startled.

”More like in a coma, ” Ma Zheng clarified. ”She suffered severe damage to her Mystic Soul and Sea of Consciousness. She ’s lucky. Without Imperial Monarch Muyang and Sky Monarch Chaoyue helping her, she wouldn ’t be in a coma. ” As the one of the weakest types of Earthly Saint, a 1st Runic Ascendant, Zhang Ziyi was quite fragile. Relative to ordinary Earthly Saints, that is. While Tian Muyang, Yang Chaoyue, and Ma Zheng had been inflicted with injuries too, Zhang Ziyi suffered the absolute worst of it.

”A coma… ” Wei Wuyin realized that he still suffered a loss here.
