Paragon of Sin

Chapter 9: The Challenge

yed her retreat. A sudden urge to spurt blood emerged, but she suppressed it.

Wei Wuyin ’s eyes widened in shock, but not just his. Everyone, including Jiu Lang and Tao Gui eyes widened. Only two people were exempt, Ling Ya and another. She had an expectant gaze.

”For love! ” Han Yu ’s voice became distorted as his qi started to surge wildly and before long…


The explosion sent massive waves of intense qi flowing out in a violent manner. Han Yu had self-destructed and turned himself into a literal bomb. All of his qi, and his Heart of Qi, had been explosively sent in all directions in an insane suicidal attack. It was unexpected as his status was just on the rise, but his last words were very telling.

Mei Mei ’s face grew pale as the explosion engulfed her body. With wild force, she was rocketed outwards like a flung piece of trash. Her body left a trail of violent qi and blood as she made an arc so far that she landed on another platform.

The disheartening, horrific thud of broken bones was like a wake-up call to everyone.

”Oh shit! Han Yu actually detonated his Heart of Qi?! ” Someone cried.

”Why? He killed himself for what?! He was an inner disciple who had a limitless future! ” Others cried in disbelief.

”For love apparently, ” someone who had good hearing and heard Han Yu ’s final words shouted in extreme derision. After all, without life, how can you enjoy love?

Wei Wuyin ’s eyes were dark. His eyes flashed a silver shine as he executed the spiritual spell, Iron Core Eyes. With that, he could sense the quintessential life energy in her body. If she were dead, it would flow out without end. Fortunately, it was steadily flowing through her body.

However, she left a figure of blood. A horrifying sight. Elder Bai looked at the situation and tried to have his mind catch-up to what happened like the rest. He kicked off and arrived next to Mei Mei and his gaze flickered.

”She ’s alive. The winner of The Challenge: Mei Mei. ” As a judge, he immediately declared before returning to his original spot, leaving Mei Mei where she was. There was no medic team arriving or in-wait. That was the cruelty of The Challenge.

Wei Wuyin kicked off now that the match was officially over. He arrived next to her with a cold gaze. He could see her body squirming as she tried to move, but her muscles and flesh had been torn into places. If it wasn ’t for her powerful body and firm foundation, it ’s unlikely anyone at her cultivation level could survive that.

If her current state was surviving.

A self-destruction from a Qi Creation Phase cultivator could kill someone at the Elemental Birth Phase if they were caught unawares. However, how long and hard must one cultivate to even touch upon the Qi Condensation Realm?! Who in their right mind would surrender their life without a serious grudge or with utter hopelessness.

He wanted to help her, but he hadn ’t reached the Yang Growth, so he couldn ’t nourish her body with vitality. He would feed her a pill, but if she died right after, others could use that to strip him of his status or even get him crippled.

He took a deep breath and left, returning to his spot. His gaze was icy-cold. No one attempted to touch Mei Mei ’s body, her life and death would be decided by her willpower and if she could last until all the proceedings were over.

Elder Bai continued without care, ”All other challengers, step forward. ”

At the moment, Li Fei was conflicted. Her gaze towards Mei Mei was like a battle between angelic and devilish forces. At the moment, Mei Mei could only forfeit her position as a core disciple if anyone challenged her.

She would lose her status, power, and various cultivation benefits. Having made many enemies, it ’s likely her fate would be absolutely pathetic now that she wouldn ’t be protected by the sect in the same way as before. It would be lucky if the next time she left the sect, she wasn ’t crippled and turned into a slave, and just directly killed.

That was, if she wasn ’t crippled already.

Li Fei was a part of Wei Wuyin ’s faction and thus were allies with Mei Mei ’s faction. She had received her favor and support from her subordinates, so challenging her right now would be ungrateful. Worse, if Wei Wuyin decided to target her because of this. He now had Elder Ji ’s backing. But Core Rank status came with immensely tempting benefits!

While her ongoing struggle happened, a cold voice sounded, ”Qu Gui challenges Core Disciple Mei Mei. ” There was silence and everyone ’s gaze looked towards the woman who many were unsure was alive or dead. Her bloody body had faint drag marks as she was obviously slowly clawing her way somewhere.

A feeling of pity emerged in all their hearts.

Wei Wuyin looked at Qu Gui and his cold gaze turned indifferent.

After ten minutes, Qu Gui was automatically declared the winner and promoted to Core Rank. As a core disciple, she would inherit all the things Mei Mei had, and Mei Mei ’s subordinates and faction would be broken apart.

With that, The Challenge concluded in an unexpected fashion. Han Yu, a genius with a bloodline, self-destructed and caused Mei Mei, the oldest core disciple, to lose her status and position.

”Let the Core Competition commence! ” Elder Bai declared.
