Paragon of Sin

Chapter 257: Increasing the Wager

If these young elites were shocked, then those elders were even more startled by Wei Wuyin ’s actions. When he arrived, the mana exuded a faint sense of oppression, and they even felt as if their own Sky Pressure had been reduced by several notches.

Qin Rui and Ji Changkong were startled by Wei Wuyin ’s arrival. When he descended with his black robes fluttering elegantly in the wind, revealing a face with handsomeness that exceeded the Immortals of myths, and his innate aura rippling with an oppressive pressure, they truly were at a loss for words.

But Tuo Bihan faintly smiled. This little kid was quite decisive in his actions. With the arrival of the Alchemist Association and Elemental Heaven Pavilion, there was definitely something amiss. For him to notice and portal here after his brief message, he must ’ve understood the situation wasn ’t as simple as it seemed.

Wei Wuyin ’s feet landed on the translucent platform. When his silver eyes roamed, he noticed the elders of the Alchemist Association and Elemental Heaven Pavilion. When he saw Qingye Yun and Lin Ruyan here, his heart shook slightly. For two of the leaders of top-tier forces to arrive, they can ’t be here for simple negotiations.

’He ’s here! ’Qingye Yun ’s eyes brightened a little, but he hurriedly regained his composure, concealing his excitement and shock. Wei Wuyin had become a Sky Ruler? This was completely unexpected. This meant he wasn ’t just a genius of the Alchemic Dao but had a high comprehension ability and foundation towards cultivation. This only solidified the thoughts already prevalent in his heart.

Lin Ruyan had finally observed Wei Wuyin. Her blue eyes shrunk slightly. She had never seen such a handsome man before, and his aura, talent, and cultivation was not lacking for someone his age. She had never shown much interest in men before, but Wei Wuyin had struck a lonely chord within her heart. It was quite unfortunate…

Just as he thought, the two had originally thought he would be present even if he wasn ’t directly participating. When he had finally arrived, they all had subtle expressions that flashed with relief, excitement, and shock. These three emotions were very telling, and his arrival had merely allowed them to proceed with their plans.

He calmly walked to Tuo Bihan and the other ’s side, ”We ’ll accept your condition. ” When his words once more were said, none of his seniors spoke to admonish him or interfere. After all, his influence and importance had been thoroughly infused into their thoughts and hearts. Wei Wuyin was not a figure to publicly rebuke or question without sufficient reason, regardless of your kind intentions in doing so.

Quite a few wanted to advise him of this, not because they were scared to accept, but purely because they were unwilling to fall into their trap.

With the three Grand Imperial Sages remaining silent, they didn ’t have a right.

Qingye Yun smiled, but his heart shook. Wei Wuyin had already taken the lead, representing the entire Myriad Monarch Sect. It had only been five years yet each of these elders who cared about hierarchy and authority had already been cowed by his actions and reputation. This wasn ’t a simple matter.

”Do you have the qualifications to make such a declaration? ” But Lin Ruyan was a little blind to this fact, immediately pointing out Wei Wuyin ’s inferior ranking and junior status. There were other Heavenly Kings below, participating in the trial, and before them, the leaders of a hegemonic force and first-tier power, they didn ’t even have a right to make this decision.

Wei Wuyin was unperturbed by her question. Instead, he silently waited with a smile and Tuo Bihan said: ”Heavenly King Wei is fully capable of making this decision. ” That was all that needed to be said to shut her question down.

Wei Wuyin was startled. ’Did he just call me Heavenly King Wei? Not little boy? Lass? Kid? Fellow? ’It seems this old man understood when to let go of his strange matter of address when it mattered. Despite his shock, he added: ”I ’ve made the Spatial Spirit Pill with my own efforts. While this trial was set-up to find a worthy inheritor, I still reserve the right to decide on whether I wish to wager it or not. Furthermore… ”

His eyes revealed a hint of playful confidence, ”I don ’t believe you ’re our match. ” His words didn ’t just implicate the juniors but the elders, a light slap from the mouth of a junior. This caused the Elemental Heaven Pavilion Elders, which numbered four, to reveal expressions of anger. The Myriad Monarch Sect had been beaten down to the ground, proclaimed as the weakest hegemonic force within the starfield.

Furthermore, they lost a vast amount of their territory after the war, only keeping three planets near their central planet. If it wasn ’t for the San Clan ’s interference, perhaps this world wouldn ’t have a Myriad Monarch Sect. Such audacity ignited their desire to see Wei Wuyin eat his words.

”You ’re quite confident, young alchemist Wei. ” Qingye Yun spoke, his eyes filled with interest.

”I am, ” Wei Wuyin smilingly replied.

Qingye Yun seemed excited as he thought for a moment and then said, as if it was a just-conceived intention, ”How about we make this wager more interesting, then? ” His words caused those of the Myriad Monarch Sect to frown. A wager with the Alchemist Association was quite risky. They had sufficient wealth to break any hegemonic force alone, so they weren ’t willing to risk it all.

”I agree. ” Wei Wuyin said without hesitation but quickly added: ”Let ’s increase the bet a little, this time between us. Let ’s include a hundred Astral Sea Pills, at least high-quality, a hundred Sky World Pills, and ten thousand Astral Dipper Fountain Pills. That shouldn ’t be too much, right? ”

”… ”

”… ”

”… ”

”WHAT?! ” An elder of the Myriad Monarch Sect lost his composure, exclaiming in disbelief as everyone else was struck speechless. For a full minute, neither side responded.
