Paragon of Sin

Chapter 93: Unknown Undercurrents

br>
Abruptly, their speed increased. With this level of speed, they ’d intercept the route of the Prince in approximately seven seconds.

While this happened, Wei Wuyin opened his eyes. The Prince had turned away, but one could see his cultivation base circulate. The aura of a Seventh Phase of Qi Condensation Realm was quietly emitted from his pores.

Wei Wuyin ’s eyebrows flew up. This could be considered the peak of a Mortal God, reaching the sublime state of their metaphysical qi. From what he knew, the prince was in his sixties. To reach such a height in that period of time, he was without a doubt an astonishing genius.

He felt the aura of Li Tian and Li Di. They were both at the Seventh Stage as well. No wonder they were qualified to act as the guards of a prince. They only lacked the fusion of spirit and core before they became Godlords. However, much like the rest of cultivation, whether they could or not was unknown.

He quietly shook his head. The killing intent emitted was a warning and a message: ”Leave! ” He didn ’t know what was going to happen, but to target a prince at this time of day near their own city, in their own country, only meant unrest within.

He transmitted a message to Bai Lin. Her eyes shone brightly before she veered off. Quickly taking another direction away from the prince.

This wasn ’t his fight nor did he wish to take part in it. Not to mention, Su Mei had just entered the Sixth Phase. Her cultivation base was unstable and her combat prowess would be heavily affected. If something were to happen to Su Mei or Bai Lin because of his decision to meddle, how could he live with himself?

While it was unfortunate that he wouldn ’t be able to visit the auction with a prince figure at his side, he still intended to go.

Prince Zhen noticed Wei Wuyin leave and he sighed inwardly in relief. Those two didn ’t deserve to be caught in the dramatics of the royal clan. Then, his eyes turned determined and murderous. His mount halted in mid-air, and he turned around, his eyes flashing a sanguine light. A blood-red, double-sided battle axe that was three meters tall, with an axe as wide as two of him, and a thickness that could only allude to its heaviness.

When it was summoned, Li Tian and Li Di both retrieved their weapons. Longswords about two fingers wide and two meters long appeared. Li Tian ’s longsword had a golden blade and etchings of nimbus clouds along its edges. Li Di ’s longsword blade was grey with black mountains etched on its surface.

”Such timing! ” Prince Zhen lamented. The civil unrest and shifting undercurrents in the capital had already reached such a state.

”Well, if you ’ve come to seek death, I have a rather healthy dose. Come have some. ” His bodily stance was brutal as he held the large blood axe in a single hand. With the readiness to commit murderer, he brandished his axe.

Those black-clothed figures revealed themselves. They didn ’t speak and immediately took action. With a burst of synchronized qi, they shot forward rapidly. Prince Zhen and his twin guardians launched their attacks.

Boom!

Bam!

Bang!

While the sounds of battle echoed behind him, Wei Wuyin ’s expression was mild and indifferent. This situation was outside of his expectations, and quite frankly, he didn ’t want to be involved.

Firstly, this prince wasn ’t a friend. He had no reason to help in any capacity. They had literally just met, so taking action to intervene felt unnecessary.

Secondly, fighting would offend a party. He didn ’t know who was attacking or why, but hindering or outright slaughtering their members would likely turn their attention to him.

Lastly, but most importantly, he didn ’t really care.

Su Mei ’s eyes revealed a similar intent. Her gaze looked passively at the epic battle between the Prince, his guardians, and their attackers. This wasn ’t the first time she ’d witnessed Mortal Gods exert their strength, but it still caused her to be in awe.

She found it surreal that her cultivation had now reached that level.

Shroom!

The immediate sky, a small patch above the sky-rending fight, turned sanguine in color. A bloody sweet smell suffused the air and caused a heavy throbbing of one ’s heart and pulsation of the veins. Su Mei found her lungs constrict slightly, causing her to feel shortness of breath.

Wei Wuyin wasn ’t affected by this force. He observed the sky above and told Bai Lin to land. His interest was piqued as he witnessed the sky change colors. A storm seemed to be brewing as the winds started to become turbulent and visibly chaotic beneath the patch of sanguine sky.

At the center of these brewing winds was Prince Zhen covered in a sanguine light. He stood upright, looking down on the earth like a God of War.

”Blood Qi! ” A material qi that was similar to Scarlet and Jade Qi. Just its aura alone could adversely affect any cultivator. Su Mei was only experiencing a fraction of what those who stood before it would feel.

The fight between the prince and those masked attackers were fierce, with each clash causing violent qi to erupt and explode. Even though he was thousands of meters away, he felt the pressure from each devastating clash.

Li Di and Li Tian worked in synchronized fashion. They struck as one and retreated as one, and they weaved around Prince Zhen whilst doing so. It was beautiful to watch as their blades released powerful wind and earth qi arts. It was like watching heaven and earth move about.

The three were at the Sublime Qi Phase, and were peak Mortal Gods, but their opponents weren ’t slouches. Of the eight, six were at the Sublime Qi Phase, while two were at the False Reality Phase. Those two weaker opponents acted as backline support and launched long-range attacks, spiritual spells, and supported their teammates when needed.

Despite their strength being the lowest, they acted with perfect timing, interfering with attacks or disrupting attacks at the right moment with their swift actions.

Wei Wuyin noticed that amongst the eight, one of them hadn ’t taken action completely. That person was the only one that was completely concealed. He couldn ’t determine their gender or cultivation base very well, but he knew that person was the leader of the eight.

As he focused his attention on this figure, the figure turned towards him as if sensing his gaze.

”… ” Wei Wuyin pondered briefly. He had the faint feeling that he was marked. Frowning, he sent his spiritual sense towards Su Mei and Bai Lin to inspect them thoroughly. When he did, he noticed a faint illusory symbol that resembled an eye on Bai Lin ’s left wing. It was wedged between her feathers and was the size of a fingerprint.

”It ’s a tracking mark? When did that…? ” He realized those figures had placed a spiritual tracing mark on Bai Lin from an incredibly long distance. He didn ’t know why, but they did. Normally, if he was a Mortal God or even a normal Godlord, he would ’ve missed this mark.

Fortunately, he had two Divine Spirits of Qi that amplified his spiritual sense with the inherent qualities of elemental and saber energy. His spiritual sense was several-fold greater and more piercing than normal.

”They don ’t intend to let us go? They let us leave so they had three less enemies to deal with… ” He muttered softly as he came to this conclusion. There was no reason for such a subtle mark otherwise.

His eyes flashed with all sorts of thoughts.

The leader of the eight noticed Wei Wuyin ’s contemplative expression.

”Seventeen! ” It called out. One of the Mortal Gods that had acted as support retreated. He turned towards the leader and without speaking, he soon nodded.

With a kick, he raced like a black predator seeking to kill towards Wei Wuyin.
