Paragon of Sin

Chapter 128: Cashing In Spirit Oath

e thought in her mind as she slowly backed up, hitting a wall and realizing she had nowhere to go. Her heart started to become tumultuous. Those who were Blessed were shielded by the heavens from her gaze. She could only manipulate those around them, seeking a path of certainty. She was quite adept at this, but it wasn ’t always reliable.

At least where they were concerned. Unlike other matters, a Blessed ’s fate and opportunities were determined by their own choices. They were beloved children given true free will, guidance, and protection by the heavens. They often lived bright lives, and unless their choices led to their downfall, they would become exceptional within their corner of the world; this was their destiny.

If Wei Wuyin heard this, he would be deeply shocked. After all, it was his choice to free Na Xinyi, the Three-Point Yin Physique captive that led to Long Chen meeting her, they forming a relationship, and him swearing to end his life. In the end of his alternative future, his life was undoubtedly ended due to this.

It was his choice.

It was his mercy.

Even still, after knowing all that, he wouldn ’t regret it. Regardless of what, he had to stick to his principles and maintain a clear heart. If he allowed himself to descend into the muck, would he still be himself when he left?

Himself; this wasn ’t something he was willing to lose.

After acclimating to her circumstances, Ming Shufeng smartly settled down and calmly regarded Wei Wuyin. For now, she needed to probe his intentions. Considering her vital yin was still intact and her clothes weren ’t removed, she felt her own purity was safe. The lack of lust and honest-to-god beyond handsomeness this man had likely meant he had no lack of women desiring his bed. Furthermore, he hadn ’t sealed her cultivation base or taken her storage ring, so he likely didn ’t have any ill-intentions.

”What do you want? ” Her ocean blue eyes fixated on Wei Wuyin.

”Do you remember me? ” Wei Wuyin asked instead of answering.

Ming Shufeng knit her brows in a struggle to recall. Wei Wuyin was exceptional, and he wasn ’t a figure she ’d forget. Right?

In truth, the Wei Wuyin from eleven years ago and now had some stark differences to them. First was definitely their presence. The Wei Wuyin before had a more riled up, ready to go-type presence. It was meek in comparison to the current Wei Wuyin who was like a calm, vast ocean.

Their looks were also similar in features yet different in quality. The benefits of grand natural looks further accentuated by Alchemical, True Dragon Blood, Elemental, Saber energies bolstered by a Spiritual Aura of four top-tier Spirits of Qi was unfathomable. It was mostly these traits that further made his attractive looks, from his piercing gaze that exuded boundless masculinity to chiseled features, or his tall and muscular form to become greatly enhanced.

If he was dressed in proper wear, he could seem like an Immortal descending to the Mortal World.

So her not figuring out the connection wasn ’t her fault. After all, she met Wei Wuyin for a mere two minutes at most in her life of likely decades. Who knows how many men she had met thus far, and how many have appearances that were similar or even better than twenty-six year old Wei Wuyin?

Wei Wuyin figured as much, so he didn ’t fault her for coming up with no answer. ”Golden Milk City, Surabhi Emporium. About eleven years ago. You made a Spirit Oath with me. ” When he said this, he lifted his palm and ice qi started to gather.

Soon, Absolute Frost Ice Qi appeared. The temperature of the room dropped instantly by several dozen degrees.

”You! ” It took a second, but she soon recalled with a trembling gaze suffused with disbelief and uncertainty. She saw Wei Wuyin ’s death when he refined the Absolute Frost Ice Essence! It was horrifically gruesome and he instantly turned into an ice sculpture in the midst of wailing screams of regret and pain. His life was sealed in a matter of moments.

Wei Wuyin nodded. ”I ’ve won our bet. ” As he said this, he felt a spark of some sort.

It was like a connection of his Divine Spirit of Saber Qi and something else. It seemed to tether himself to some force, some mysterious law of the world. It was the first time since he had ever felt this way after completing a Spirit Oath.

And from Ming Shufeng ’s expression, that was unsightly and somewhat contorted, she seemed to have felt something similar. Her expression paled after this sensation rummaged through her soul.

”Is this the power of a Spirit Oath? What governs this? It doesn ’t seem like the Heavenly Daos ’ aura…I wonder if that ’s… ” He felt like this feeling alluded to a greater mystery regarding the truths of cultivation, yet he couldn ’t grasp it. It seemed his knowledge of things in general were just too little and limited. How unfortunate.

While he wallowed in the woes of ignorance, Ming Shufeng was cursing in her heart. Unlike others, she cultivated a Heart of Qi that could never be repaired or remade, a Fate Heart of Qi. It allowed her to glimpse into the heavenly daos and its trends, even manipulate present trends to bring about outcomes of future trends. If it shattered due to a Spirit Oath, she would forever lose her connection to the intoxicating Heavenly Daos and the lines of fate.

She bit her soft lips. Recalling the contents of the oath calmed her down. At least Wei Wuyin couldn ’t take her purity or force her to hurt herself, so she could accept it, albeit begrudgingly. ”What do you want? ” She asked again, this time she knew she ’d get an answer. After all, for today, for one day, she had to listen to Wei Wuyin.

And those were the words he wanted to hear, words that contained willingness. Taking a deep breath, his silver eyes met her blue ones.

”I don ’t want much really. I just want you to…see what Hell has to offer. ”
