Paragon of Sin

Chapter 175: A Bit of News

While he was somewhat amazed, he still remained fully focused on his heart.

He realized the changes were minute, with strands of invisible ripples that caused his blood to surge to circulate through his entire body, especially his bones, blood vessels, and spinal cord. They seemed to be most affected by this power.

’The Draconic Natal Soul is absorbing the crystal ’s unique power? I wonder what changes that will bring about. ’After watching over his heart for twelve full hours, he realized the changes taking place were unfathomably slow. Furthermore, his Draconic Natal Soul seemed to have sealed itself off during this transformation.

’Now that I think about it, each of my Natal Souls have defining characteristics except for my Draconic Natal Soul. While it is unique in and of itself, it doesn ’t have a particular attribute. ’His Divine Elemental Natal Soul and Divine Saber Natal Soul had exceptional spiritual strength, energies, sense, and quality due to their ’Divine ’ transformation. Even Wei Wuyin wasn ’t entirely sure of the massive benefits a ’Divine ’ Natal Soul will or could provide.

All he knew was that his spiritual abilities were massively amplified, and this better his control over Saber and Elemental Qi. Furthermore, their personal attribute was defined by Elemental and Saber, yet the Draconic Natal Soul could be said to lack a personal attribute.

Did this Jade Crystal act as a catalyst to give it a personal attribute, and if so, how far will it go? A wisp of excitement entered and soon fully impregnated his eyes! It seemed as if it was going to give birth to lofty aspirations.

”Lord Wei, ” a soft, yet stable voice called from outside his room. It was Su Mei.

Opening his eyes, he swiftly used his elemental wood and water qi to wash the blood and any bitter smell away before allowing Su Mei in.

Su Mei walked in, her aura was stable and seemed to contain an innate sharpness. She was garbed in black robes, her attire form-fitting and attractively valiant, and a dark-colored scabbard was at her hip. Even from within, her saber glistened an aura of a piercing sharpness that could hurt the eyes.

Wei Wuyin ’s eyes widened slightly as he regarded her aura. What…the…

”You birthed Saber Intent? ” He immediately asked, shocked by Su Mei ’s advancement in cultivation. While he knew she was more talented than him in terms of cultivation, he was shocked to discover her recent achievement.

Su Mei ’s eyes brightened momentarily, a tinge of happiness within as she nodded. ”It came about in a cultivation session earlier today. ”

Wei Wuyin stared at her for a quite a while. The more he understood the greater path of cultivation, especially in the Tri-Vision Starfield, the more he understood the scarcity of things in this world. The most scarce were those who birthed Ethereal Intent and high-level Alchemists.

While the starfield didn ’t put much importance to Ethereal Intent, because while it can improve cultivation prowess, so could armaments, established arrays, or spiritual formations. Given the right circumstances, a cultivator could kill an elite expert two phases above. It all depended on various factors.

”Good. ” Wei Wuyin softly remarked as he was relaxed in his heart. His intention was to develop his faction, Ascendants, as one that held quality over quantity, and Su Mei was a crucial piece to his structural hierarchy. As long as she could hold her own against monsters like Zuhei, she would be able to maintain a semblance of authority.

Su Mei held back her smile, maintaining a flat expression as she said, ”Lord Wei, I ’ve fully investigated the events of the Nascent Dust Examination. ”

”Oh? ” Wei Wuyin ’s eyes glowed slightly. He had given her an objective in hiring others to get a full report on what happened to the ascenders that were from the Myriad Yore Continent. He was quite curious about one person in particular: Mei Mei.

She had also been a part of the Nascent Dust Examination, but he didn ’t interfere in her choices or influence her status. This wasn ’t due to his unwillingness, but because of the Dao Companion Oath. Furthermore, he felt a feeling that he needed to stay away from her otherwise it could adversely affect him.

This wasn ’t an intuition from his Bloodline of Sin, but a direct feeling transmitted by the Heavenly Daos. While he was uncertain of the specifics, he made a few assumptions. He presumed that perhaps due to their Heavenly Oath, his interactions that could be misconstrued as establishing a relationship could lower his Karmic Luck Value.

After all, him knowingly interfering would be directly against the Heavenly Daos Will. This was a little frustrating, but this was probably for the best.

Su Mei explained, ”Mei Mei inevitably did not take the examination. Instead, she left, traveled around for a short period before she was picked up by one of the recruitment campaigns. It belonged to a sect from the Jinai Continent called the Rainbow Crane Sect. She was inducted after an examination and was brought away to the Jinai Continent. ”

Wei Wuyin frowned slightly. He knew that lesser sects or clans recruit from the Myriad Monarch Planet. Those from this planet or any of the three planets had a better environment, so their talents and cultivators were oftentimes exemplary. Unfortunately, those elite talents would choose to join the Myriad Monarch Sect.

In fact, most of these external sects were managed by factions led by Sky Nobles or Heavenly Kings.

”I ’ve investigated the Jinai Continent and Rainbow Crane Sect, they only accept female cultivators and are within the Myriad Monarch Astral Territory. It isn ’t too far, and their reputation is rather good in how they treat their disciples. It belongs to an Imperial Sage of the Extreme Origin Mountain named Bing Chunli. ” Su Mei thoroughly explained the rest of the facts.

Bing Chunli was an Imperial Sage that has been in power for over a hundred years and had control over several continents. She was renowned for her Ice & Frost Arts. It was said that one of the continents she controlled was a winter wonderland, and her and her clan had set it as their base of operations.

Her strength and reputation was considered rather good. After learning this, he felt some relief. While it was unlikely that him and Mei Mei would ever become more than what they currently were, he still owed her too much.

Others might not know…

But he did.

”There ’s also a report about Long Chen, ” Su Mei flatly stated as if she was in a contest to win ’most apathetic ’.

Wei Wuyin didn ’t care too much for Long Chen ’s matters, but his innate curiosity was explosive when it regarded that ring he kept on his finger. He felt it was the core reason for his success. It ’s funny how everyone in his sect and even the country had assumed his success was brought about by a mystical treasure of some sort when Long Chen was likely truly relying on some treasure or spirit yet was never thrown any suspicion.

He felt this was definitely the work of the Heavenly Daos concealing the truth from others. This was most definitely the case when everyone kept talking about his endless potential and boundless talent. It was as if they were certain that was the case.

In the end, he replied: ”Let ’s hear it. ”
