Paragon of Sin

Chapter 414: Three Fellows

tablished this trial and its clear the cultivation level needed to effectively survive in this world as an external genius was higher than what his own, likely at the Light Reflection Phase.

Wei Wuyin chuckled to himself, thinking the Divine King had used the standards of the starfield ’s golden age to establish this trial by. It didn ’t matter, what comes will come. He ’ll handle all of it regardless.

With a twist of his body, he flew towards the spectators. When he arrived, he saw Ai Juling who seemed to be unconscious, laying down on the ground defenseless. Wei Wuyin felt this was interesting and ignored her feigning attempt, turning to the separate astral ward containing the human captives. 

He didn ’t undo his protection. The environment still contained desolate power so he walked into the ward, then his fingers flicked with spiritual light that entered the bodies of everyone present. Their flesh glowed slightly as the shackles that had binded their flesh and cultivation bases were removed. 

They were initially startled by this development, but their eyes were soon fixated on Wei Wuyin with awed expressions. The elderly man felt his cultivation freed, flexing his strength a little to reveal his cultivation at the Soul Idol Phase. From the faint spiritual aura emitted, he had a five-ringed Soul Idol. 

He clasped his hands and deeply bowed, ”Thank you for saving me, Senior. ” As the first to regain his composure, he took the lead in giving his thanks to Wei Wuyin. Regardless of how young Wei Wuyin seemed or what he thought of him before, Wei Wuyin was a bonafide expert. He had defeated a City Lord of the Grey Sands Elves, an existence that could spit on him and cause his death, so he revealed the utmost respect.

The others soon followed, giving their deepest thanks. Even the man who ridiculed and mocked him prior bowed, his bow the deepest and most energetic amongst the group. There wasn ’t much fear in his heart because if Wei Wuyin wanted him dead, he ’d be dead, not freed. As for apologizing? Would his apology matter to such an expert?

Wei Wuyin once more found it strange to be referred to as Senior by those hundreds of years older than him, even if it was a custom amongst cultivators. But being referred to as Junior by those who were weak by comparison would similarly feel wrong, so he wasn ’t certain how to respond to this feeling of his. After all, he was referred to as Prince Wei, Lord Wei, Heavenly King Wei, his majesty, Ascendant Emperor Wei, or simply Wei Wuyin in his starfield. His status and reputation was simply that great.

”The Grey Sands Elves of that city don ’t seem to be pursuing, so you ’re all free. ” When Wei Wuyin stated this, their heavy hearts felt relieved. They won ’t be sold off as Energy Converters or Alchemic Proxies! This was great news. As for the Grey Sands Elves hunting them down? Unlikely.

They ’ll be focused on Wei Wuyin, not them. They were just small fries in comparison. But this left everyone a little uncertain how to proceed. If they left now, they might be recaptured, but if they stayed and stronger forces arrived and eventually killed Wei Wuyin or he was pushed to the point of fleeing, then their deaths were clear.

Most of the Seekers decided to return to hunting, exploring the world on their own. They used all sorts of tools, clothes, and their own forces to resist the desolate power and departed in different directions. The only ones who stayed were three individuals: the bald man, the elderly man, and the man who mocked Wei Wuyin.

These three were named Huang Yu, Chu Leitao, and Li Wang respectively.

The elderly man, Chu Leitao, cautiously spoke at this moment: ”Senior, may I ask where you intend to go? ” 

Wei Wuyin inspected this elderly man with a muscular body and felt that he was quite perceptive. He was also the one who answered his questions the most, so he liked him enough to give him some respect. ”I don ’t know exactly. In truth, I ’m not familiar with The Desolate Lands. What I do know is that I need to find a human city to gather my bearings. ”

The bald man ’s eyes brightly lit as he jumped with excitement. After receiving the glances of the others, his face turned a little red in a blush. Huang Yu truly had a child-like quality about him, and this caused Wei Wuyin to like him as well. After a moment of silence, the bald man avidly spoke what was on his mind.

”There ’s a city called the Grandquake City! It ’s nearby and I have a residence there within my clan! If…if you want, I can bring you there. ” Huang Yu stammered at the end, a little uncertain if Wei Wuyin would accept his invitation, but his excitement at the prospect leaked uncontrollably.

Wei Wuyin ’s face formed a slight smile, ”Alright. ” 

Chu Leitao was startled by the ease at which Wei Wuyin accepted such an invitation, but considering he wasn ’t familiar with The Desolate Lands or the ways of the world, he might be ignorant of the implications of being invited to a clan. 

Li Wang was silent, merely watching the conversation. He decided he ’d travel with them and return to Grandquake City. He was a member of the Central Region, so he didn ’t have a clan stationed here like Huang Yu, who was clearly a native of The Desolate Lands.

Wei Wuyin didn ’t mind his inclusion, wanting to ask a few more questions and clarifications regarding this new world. With a wave of his hand, he brought Ai Juling into his arms in a bridal carry, her head on his shoulder. Her delicate body trembled a little, but she remained ’asleep ’ so he didn ’t bother with her.

”Let ’s go. ”
