Paragon of Sin

Chapter 862:The Unsaid Difficulties

o bit her lower lip with concern. She had to leave the Grand Horse Realm and quietly use her connections to access various short-range Void Gates to arrive here, all to avoid being spotted and information being leaked of their location. Now, she was forced to stop here.

Her heart was beating wildly in her chest.

The old Imperial Monarch used his hand to touch Ma Zhengs glabella. In his current state, there was no stopping this action. After a short while, the old Imperial Monarchs eyes glinted with unfathomable emotion.

“Your life source is irreparable; your Soulspan is at its utmost limits, my friend. What happened to you?” The old Imperial Monarch was younger than Ma Zheng, by a considerable amount, but from his emotionally-fueled gaze, it was clear they had many interactions in their long lives.

Ma Zheng had a light of decay in his eyes. He smiled weakly, “Such is…the need…of choice.”

“…” The old Imperial Monarch gave him a saddened look, removing his hand, giving an understanding nod. “Such is the desire to fight, seize, and prosper.”

They both said in a similar cadence: “Such are the difficulties of cultivation.”

The old saying brought back nostalgic emotions in both their aged eyes, alongside with some light of strong defiance and a bright smile.

At this time, the various Imperial Monarchs, the various crews on the Sky Destroyers, the other Earthly Saints, Zhang Ziyi, and even Ma Sujiang felt a wave of indescribable emotion flow through their hearts and minds. They all felt those words to their very souls. They wanted to cultivate, to reach greater limits, higher than what they were, higher than what they were destined to have. Cultivation was difficult, but their will to walk that path was just as unyielding!

Ma Sujiang gritted her teeth, breaking out of her thoughts the quickest. “We need to see Wei Wuyin! Please, let us through!” She grabbed Ma Zheng, sending waves of her own lifeforce into him to stabilize his declining situation. While her lifeforce wasnt unrefined or pure, being hers to use and survive on, she didnt hesitate to pay the costly difference to buy Ma Zheng, a Demi-Mortal Lord, just a little more time.

At this point, she had already lost three thousand years off her lifespan. She might still seem youthful and unchanged, but her lifespan was already less than five thousand. This was half of the lifespan a genuine Ascended being had at the Soul of Mysticism level.

If she hadnt paid this egregious price of self-sacrifice, Ma Zheng wouldnt have survived the trip here. He might have lived longer if he remained where he was, but traveling at high-speeds was sufficient to heavily wear on his remaining strength.

“…” They all knew what Ma Sujiang wanted, but if what the old Imperial Monarch said was true, then Ma Zheng was a lost cause. There was nothing that could be done to save him. The only reason he hadnt died, his soul taken by the heavens, was due to Ma Sujiangs desperate act. Even Ma Zhengs willpower wasnt enough to allow him to survive a minute longer if not for her.

Suddenly, one of the Earthly Saints that remained hidden within the Sky Destroyer, one of the Sky Monarchs of the Imperial Clan, an Earthly Saint of the Aeternal Sky Monarch that oversees the functions and movements of the Sky Destroyers, left their Voidship. It was a woman with burgundy hair, her eyes were like ruby jewels, astonishingly beautiful, with a fair complexion. She was quite pretty.

“Ill take you to him,” she said with a peculiar glint in her eyes. She didnt hesitate to grab Ma Sujiang and Ma Zheng before they could respond, much to the old Imperial Monarchs shock, and she became a comet of burgundy light as she rushed to chase Wei Wuyin.

“…!” They were all so shocked for a moment that they were speechless. They saw the comet fly off, abandoning her post that was the Sky Destroyer.

Suddenly, the female Imperial Monarchs eyes brightened considerably. “That conniving bitch!” She didnt hesitate to jet after them, rushing off at top speed at an even greater pace.

“…!!!” Zhang Ziyi was still confused. What was happening?

Tian Muyang and the old Imperial Monarch were next, realization hit them like a bag of heavy bricks. The former turned to Tian Xiaolu and shouted: “Return to the Sky Destroyer and take the Void Gate back!” Then, the old Imperial Monarch blitzed off as well, with Tian Muyang following as well while holding the Myriad Monarch Canon.

Tian Xiaolu looked at them and shrugged. She flew to the nearest Sky Destroyer to depart, seemingly unaffected by the developing situation.

It wasnt long until all the Earthly Saints had left and followed after the burgundy-haired woman!

Up ahead, just a minute or so before, Wu Yu had caught up with Wei Wuyin. He had a grin on his face, “That was fun.” Wu Yu could barely hold his laugh.

Wei Wuyin once again held Wen Mingna in his arms, funneling bits of lifeforce into her as she rested. “A little,” he remarked.

“How did you know?” Wu Yu couldnt help but ask, his level of curiosity was exceptionally high. Just after Tian Xiaolu was introduced, when the testing challenge was issued, Wei Wuyin sent him a message. It was to treat them with utter disdain and inconsideration, as if they were all country bumpkins. Essentially, treat the Myriad Monarch Canon as trash!

Wu Yu truly thought that Wei Wuyin intended to throw away the Imperial Clans face, making them enemies, but thats not what happened! The Imperial Clan were clearly ready for a massive fight, and they likely had means to hunt and track Wei Wuyin down if they truly wanted. Not every scrying spell relied on divination.

Yet they were drawn into his pace, questioning themselves, and unable to properly react.

“They think Im the King of Everlores descendant,” Wei Wuyin calmly stated. “I just used that to my advantage. If the belief propagates, itll act as an invisible shield for us. I can act far freer in the stellar region. Except, perhaps, with the Everlore Association…”

Wu Yu was shocked for a moment, and then his eyes lit with realization. He no longer held his laughter, releasing it all. He was originally of a similar thought, but he had thought the King of Everlore was likely dead due to his complications towards ascending beyond the Astral Core Realm. He never took that into consideration in his decisions, knowing that the King of Everlore had no children. If they were his children, they would be half-elf at least.

To be frank, the only female the King of Everlore has ever given any attention was the Sacred Elven Queen and the man didnt like the idea of having children. Of course, this mightve changed in this stellar region, but it was unlikely.

After a good laugh, he asked: “You think the Everlore Associ-“

Suddenly, Wu Yus gaze grew abnormally sharp. He turned around, sensing Han Yuheis approach, but beyond him, a burst of numerous unfathomable powers were rushing their way at startling speeds.

“Young Lord, It seems your shield might not have held up,” Wu Yu coldly said as his Mystic Aura began to rapidly rise.
