Paragon of Sin

Chapter 773 - The Tang Enters Ninestar

Her orders were clear and reached the ears of every last crewmate. They immediately went into overdrive as they proceeded to act. It didn ’t take long, merely three minutes or so, before all the Voidships were moving and breached the Ninestar Starfield without any hesitation.

In the Endless Prosperity Domain, the Grand Horse Realm, there was an idyllic paradise that resembled an immortal ’s garden. There was a glistening and sparkling waterfall that seemed to generate rainbows, the lush greenery couldn ’t be any healthier, and strong, stable mountains surrounded a lake. 

In this location, two figures were seated on impromptu seats forged from boulders. An aged old man sat at one end; his greying hair and age spots were as noticeable as possible. Across from him, a beautiful young woman with hazel eyes and navy flecks. Her enchanting brows were furrowed as she looked at the board game between them. 

The two seemed to be in the process of a long, extended, and difficult match between them. These two were none other than Ma Zheng and Xue Yifei. When Xue Yifei moved, picking up a piece, and placing it down, the air within the world swirled a little.

Ma Zheng ’s lackadaisical eyes revealed a wisp of surprise, clearly beset by shock at this move of hers. However, just as he was about to immediately take advantage of this move, touching the piece and lifting it, his eyes widened slightly. He looked to Xue Yifei and his heart quivered. He was caught in a trap! With a heavy sigh, he placed his piece down.

Just as Xue Yifei moved her hand with a faint, knowing smile, Ma Zheng pressed against his king piece and tilted it downwards; he surrendered outright. 

”Haaa…this is the seventeenth consecutive time I ’ve lost to a junior. What would the world say if this were to get out? That maybe I ’m too old? ” Ma Zheng jokingly said, carrying a wry smile. 

Xue Yifei didn ’t answer, merely giving a soft smile in response. This elicited another sigh from Ma Zheng, but this time there was appreciation and admiration within it. ”Where did you learn to play so well? ” This Xue Yifei might be beautiful, but her style filled with traps and trickery was quite vicious. 

Xue Yifei ’s eyes glazed over for a moment, remembering that handsome visage that rivaled immortals of legend. ”From him, ” she answered truthfully. She always knew how to play, but it was when she played against him that her playstyle evolved, and she became even more skilled. 

”Oh? ” Ma Zheng was taken aback, but when he thought about it, he laughed. ”I didn ’t know he played, but I guess it makes sense. ”

Xue Yifei recalled her memories on the Myriad Monarch Main Planet, where she and Wei Wuyin spent the most time together. Before he left for the Gateway Door to explore its secrets, she ’d only seen him once in the Four Extreme Continent that had miraculously appeared in the Everlore Starfield, but it ’s been nearly seven years since. 

Twiing!

Ma Zheng received a spiritual transmission, his spatial ring glowing slightly. When he received it, his expression changed. ”The Fire Phoenix appeared? ” 

”A phoenix? ” Xue Yifei ’s eyes brightened when that word was said. According to what Wei Wuyin said once, he had a beloved crane that went through a tribulation to bring out the full potential of a fruit called the Golden Phoenix Fruit. Hearing about a phoenix shortly after thinking about him, how could she not be excited? 

Ma Zheng frowned slightly, looking at Xue Yifei. ”It ’s nothing; Venerable Ma Sujiang just learned that there was a unique beast in the Ninestar Starfield. ” 

”Ma Sujiang? ” Xue Yifei ’s expression slightly changed, but it soon eased. After being attacked by Ma Sujiang, she always felt a feeling of caution towards that woman. 

Ma Zheng knew about their history, even having to interfere to halt it from escalating. Considering that Ma Sujiang was his last daughter, he tried to ease the tension between them. He explained: ”Venerable Ma Sujiang went along with Highlord Silverstrike to help with a Mystic-Integration Bodily Formation, but she caught wind of this piece of news there. She asked if we should mobilize our forces. ”

Xue Yifei ’s expression changed.

Ma Sujiang added, ”But since it ’s a Fire Phoenix, there ’s no way the Tang Clan would hold back. Highlord Vermillion, the Matriarch of the Tang Clan, will certainly not let this go under any circumstance. She ’ll pay any price for it, so it ’ll be pointless unless we want to go to war against the Tang Clan.

”Considering the news of a Fire Phoenix has circulated for so long, they ’d likely made all sorts of preparations to capture it. 

Xue Yifei ’s expression changed once again, this time darker.

Ma Zheng noticed this reaction, frowning as he inquired: ”Are you okay? ” 

Xue Yifei had to steady her breathing, her thoughts became a little wild. She reminded herself that this Fire Phoenix wasn ’t likely to be Wei Wuyin ’s, but her feelings remained unsettled. 

Unable to contain herself, she immediately explained: ”I can ’t say for certain, but my fiancé has a phoenix-like beast. Could it be him? ” There was no news of Wei Wuyin, besides the arrival of an unknown Soul of Mysticism expert that mercilessly crushed his opponent in the Golden Life Pavilion ’s challenge that represented him. 

When Ma Zheng heard this, he didn ’t dismiss it, but took it seriously. ”This Fire Phoenix is said to possess the strength of a Demi-Mortal Lord, and it emerged without warning. It ’s highly possible to be a Void Beast that traversed the Dark Void from beyond the Stellar Region. What do you think are the chances of this beast being his? ” His tone deepened and his eyes focused on Xue Yifei ’s expression. 

Xue Yifei struggled inwardly, but she relented and told her honest estimate, ”Before, I was less than ten percent certain, but if its a Demi-Mortal Lord with unclear origins, then I ’m at least seventy percent sure! ” 

”… ” Ma Zheng ’s breathing halted. He looked Xue Yifei in the eyes for a long, very long moment, trying to assess her confidence. The implications of this were massive. When he resumed breathing, he made a decision. 

He sent a spiritual message to Ma Sujiang. 

Yet a few minutes later, he received a three-word reply: ”It ’s too late. ”

Planet Blueglow was evacuated by Highlord Scarletflame, her means were swift, precise and stealthy, avoiding disturbing Bai Lin ’s rest. In a few minutes, billions of cultivators of all ages and cultivation bases were taken away and sent elsewhere. 

In the shortest possible time, only Skyships of the Mystic Hallmasters and Bai Lin remained. The latter lightly slept, awaiting for Wei Wuyin ’s return. 

The Tang Clan ’s fleet arrived.
