Paragon of Sin

Chapter 619 - 614: Choices Begets Fortune

tablishing a ferry service to ensure these visitors can cross the Endless Stagnation Lake. It was quite generous of them. They were, after all, a clan that established themselves on business.

When he arrived on the island, there were individuals from the Ma Clan that were waiting, and they were quite amicable as they asked for their purpose on the island. Most of those on the ferry seemed to be visiting members of the Ma Clan, trying to integrate into the Ma Clan, or deliver taxes and discuss business contracts.

He found it interesting that there were individuals coming to deliver taxes, and they all had bright smiles and happiness in their eyes. When have taxes ever been a joyful thing? As a Grand Imperial Sage, he knew how ungrateful other forces were, and they would make up any type of excuse to pay less or delay it.

Tuo Bihan was shocked to realize that one of these figures had an aura that resembled a mighty celestial body, clearly a Starlord. While it was subtle, his strength was by no means concealed. Even that expert had a bright smile, laughing and joking with the attendants that greeted him. The respect he gave the Ma Clan people was praise-worthy.

Yet those individuals weren ’t even Realmlords, there was even a Soul Idol Phase amongst them.

”… ” Tuo Bihan felt that the Golden Life Pavilion and the Ma Clan were by no means simple. Would he face any unexpected troubles in his delivery? He could only hope not.

”Sir, your purpose for visiting our little clan? ” The female attendant had a warm smile, her pretty face and youthful vigor was quite attractive. Her life aura was roughly two hundred yet she was at the Spatial Resonance Phase. This was outstanding!

In the Neo-Dawn Starfield, if one excluded irregularities such as Wei Wuyin and certain others, like Long Chen, then being two hundred and at the Soul Idol Phase was sufficient to be considered an absolute genius, titled Heavenly Kings in the Myriad Monarch Sect. Yet this was a mere attendant at the Spatial Resonance Phase.

While her foundation wasn ’t stellar, only four-ripples to reach that level at her age was incredible. Of course, with her foundation, it ’s unlikely she ’ll successfully become a Realmlord, so it made sense she was a mere attendant. Even in this great environment, be it ambient energies or resource-rich, yet she still only reached the four-ripple Spatial Resonance.

It just goes to show…

”Cultivation is difficult, ” Tuo Bihan wistfully said. His words caused the pretty young attendant ’s expression to distort, her eyes glinted with a depressive light for a moment. But it was only momentary, ”Sir? ”

Tuo Bihan regained himself, once more appreciating his identity as an alchemist and Wei Wuyin ’s value. As an Emperor Alchemist, he helped establish Qin Rui and Yao Zhen ’s outstanding cultivation bases, yet his best efforts still caused both of them to fall short of the requirements to become a Realmlord.

”I ’m here to meet Ma Zheng, Third Manager of the Golden Life Pavilion; I have a message for him from Ascendant Emperor Wei Wuyin. ” He decided not to just use Wei Wuyin ’s full name, resorting to his title. If the name reached Ma Zheng, he should understand it. After all, it was Wei Wuyin ’s most prestigious title, and there might be other Wei Wuyin ’s in this starfield.

It was a good name.

”Patriarch Ma? Ascendant Emperor Wei Wuyin? ” The attendant was gobsmacked. She gave Tuo Bihan an once-over, finding his clothes shabby in comparison to other high-ranking envoys and his cultivation severely lacking. And she had never heard of this Ascendant Emperor before? Such a domineering name!

Furthermore, anyone with the qualifications to meet Ma Zheng wouldn ’t do so via this way. She couldn ’t help but heavily frown. The crowd also halted, turning to Tuo Bihan who seemed like a bum Realmlord out of the sticks.

Tuo Bihan understood her concerns, but he had a mission. He added politely, ”Can you at least tell someone important about this? If they ’re connected to Ma Zheng, they ’ll certainly understand who I represent. I can assure you, you ’ll be rewarded heavily for your efforts and diligence. ”

He knew that most attendants might dismiss him, mostly to avoid trouble, so he humbled himself and enticed this pretty attendant. Yet this only seemed desperate in the eyes of the crowd, and the attendant ’s expression became dissatisfied as she shook her head.

”It ’s impossible, I can- ” Her words were about to reject his request, send him on his way, but she felt her throat seize up. She felt an oppressive power engulf her, her eyes widened in terror.

”Bring him to the 2nd Region ’s Concentration Field, ” a voice resounded to the surroundings, shocking the crowd. A new attendant seemed to have received a message, placing on a genial smile and stepped forward towards Tuo Bihan.

”Sir, please follow me. ” His words were as polite as possible, and Tuo Bihan looked at the pretty attendant for a moment. A trace of pity in his eyes. If only she was a little more diligent in her job, not dismissive, perhaps her fate might ’ve changed today. Clearly whoever spoke waited to hear her reply before abruptly shutting her off.

It was judging a book by its cover, and lacking an instinct to grasp fortune.. Not every fortune was the product of the heavens, but of people, based on their individual choices.
