Paragon of Sin

Chapter 130: Unwilling Unyielding

sciousness, his Alchemic Spirit of Eden Qi started to brilliantly glow with multicolored lights. Its form directly dived into his sea of consciousness and merged with it, permeating endless alchemical energies.

This stabilized his mind and focused his thoughts. A clarity unlike any was now contained within his eyes.

When Ming Shufeng saw those silver eyes of his fixate on her face, she shivered. So intense! Did he…

She folded her arms around her chest, feeling insecure. Would this madman break his oath? While this senseless thought entered her mind, Wei Wuyin spoke.

”Explain it again. ”

”…What? ” Ming Shufeng started. Again? Why?

”Just! Explain it again. ” He repeated.

Those firm eyes of his were unwilling to give up. He was given this title before his time, given barely any chance of success. While he was grateful as the Black Skeleton had saved his life by these actions, he was unwilling to lose his life like this. He had wallowed in despair for a year, quietly accepting his death.

He had given up.

But a year was enough. He was unwilling to return empty handed as he waited for his fate to disperse within these Calamities of Hell. Even if his mind collapses, he just needs one chance!

”I… ” Ming Shufeng was uncertain of what to do.

”Say it! The Oath compels you to listen to me! ” Wei Wuyin shouted.

Ming Shufeng truly was unable to understand Wei Wuyin, but she had to listen. Her slight hesitation had already caused quivering of his Fate Spirit of Qi. If she delayed any longer, she ’d be breaking the oath and all her life ’s work would be over.

So, she said it again.

”&$&@&%&¿¡ฯ%!#@… ” She started to explain once more.

Seventeen seconds.

Once more, he experienced that pain that could cause immortals to claim their own lives, gods to beg, and ghosts to weep swept his mind, body, and soul. All he received was an unintelligible mess.

”Is that enough? ” Ming Shufeng asked after once more explaining the eighteen layers.

Wei Wuyin ’s eyes were bloodshot. It was as if rivers of blood were surging within those seas of white.

”No! I need you to repeat everything you said, word for word, cadence for cadence. ” Wei Wuyin felt his entire sense of self fracture, but he remained firm.

”…what? ” Ming Shufeng was truly confused.

Earlier, her explanation was different than her last one, so the words came out different. He hadn ’t caught the unintelligible mess last time due to dwelling in that horrid experience earlier, but this time, he heard every last bit.

”Again! The same! I order you! ” At this point, he was screaming and shouting like a madman, but he didn ’t care.

Ming Shufeng jumped at his aggression, but listened to his words. After all, if she didn ’t follow his orders exactly, her spirit would collapse. She couldn ’t let that happen.

”&$&@&%&¿¡ฯ%!#@… ”

”&$&@&%&¿¡ฯ%!#@… ”

”&$&@&%&¿¡ฯ%!#@… ”

For the entire day, Ming Shufeng repeated those words over and over, and each time, Wei Wuyin experienced hell itself within his everything, but he clenched his teeth, balled up his fist, and continued with open ears.

After the 100th time, he asked her to explain using different words. Then, after another hundred, another set of different words. While Ming Shufeng likely felt that he was just torturing her, his actions had meaning.

A very purposeful meaning.

Language was a mysterious thing. There was no language without order or sense. An idea, a concept, a thing, a continuation, various languages incorporated these concepts in the form of detail. Everything has a meaning but deciphering that meaning was difficult. Halfway through, he tried to see if Ming Shufeng could display her words with hand movements, but those hands were distorted and contorted from his sight.

However, he could still make out something.

A pattern.

Regardless if it was the distortion or contorted sense of sight or hearing, one thing remained constant: the contorted and distorted changes. An unfathomable power was changing them, but it was mechanical and inflexible. It changed them all the same way. After all, she was still speaking his language, just changed.

Trying to work your way through that was a near impossible feat. After all, what was unintelligible would still be unintelligible unless you could confirm at least what something meant.

And he did.

It took numerous tries and the pain of experiencing a form of torture that could make the harshest interrogators seem like children, but he did!

It felt like decrypting the most difficult puzzles with merely the instructions from white noise, all while being tortured endlessly to prevent focus and concentration. Yet, in the end, he determined just a few things.

When the day was over, Ming Shufeng felt her binding oath get removed from her spirit. Earlier, she couldn ’t escape after being locked by this Spirit Oath, but now she had regained her freedom. Her bright eyes looked towards Wei Wuyin before she bit her lips slightly. In a flash, she withdrew a crystal from her storage ring and crushed it.

Her figure warped and vanished in the blink of an eye.

Wei Wuyin didn ’t stop her. While he could ’ve stopped her even in his chaotic state, this was essentially letting her go; her usefulness was over. In truth, he owed her, so his previous desires for revenge was mostly abolished. In the future, when he looks back on this moment, he might even be thankful.

He sat down in contemplation. While his muscles twitched at times, his vision went blurry, and his consciousness would fade in and out erratically, his thoughts remained clear and calculating.

He focused the majority of his attention on the early portions of Ming Shufeng ’s explanation. While he used the middle and latter portions to help his deciphering, it wasn ’t focused on.

In it, he merely was capable of determining with greater certainty than others one sentence. It may not be entirely correct, but that ’s all he had to rely on.

”Second…survive in darkness, life passes. ”

This was it.

But…to him, it was enough.
