Paragon of Sin

Chapter 440: First Come First Serve

during the chaos, timely entering and obtaining documents that would lead to a specific location. This location was quite special because it was filled with treasure!

Ming Shufeng softly complained, ”Wouldn ’t it be easier to obtain the key to it? ” They had risked their lives venturing into hostile territory and snatched away vital records sealed for a reason, and they obtained clues that, with her Heavenly Sight, allowed her to determine its location. But she also understood that there was a key required to enter.

This world ’s inhabitants referred to it as a Badge of Divinity. 

The cloaked woman was quiet for a while, but spoke. ”We can ’t. In a month, the True Elemental Emperor will reach this location, using the badge to claim all its contents. ” Her words caused Ming Shufeng to frown, knowing that this ’True Elemental Emperor ’ was likely that handsome young man that caused the disturbance at Rising Ash City.

”So he has the badge? ” Ming Shufeng questioned, understanding a little more. If so, it made sense. That young man was terrifying, facing the elites of the city and being chased about yet still escaping and surviving. To try to steal the badge from someone like that, it was far too risky.

”… ” The cloaked woman didn ’t answer. She only spoke again as they arrived a few hundred meters from the base of a volcanic mountain, ”We ’re here. ” 

Ming Shufeng lifted her ocean-like eyes, seeing the unfathomably tall volcanic mountain burning a blazing light, releasing blistering heat she couldn ’t feel behind the fiery-red astral ward. 

The cloaked woman glanced upward, then down, thinking of something. Then, she whispered something under her breath. Beneath her hood, bright crimson light flared outwards. She formed a few handseals, causing the world to quake.

Ming Shufeng started, swiftly adjusting her balance to not embarrass herself with a fall. ”What ’s happening? ” She asked, a silly thing for a Heavenly Seer. They were regarded as knowing many things others couldn ’t fathom, but since meeting this woman, she understood there was always someone who knew more.

The woman softly spoke, ”The badges are merely keys, but there are other ways to enter these caches. To obtain what is inside without a badge. ” As she said this, her brightly lit crimson eyes effused bursting light, piercing into the blackened ground.

Ming Shufeng felt her heart trembling non-stop. ”How?! ” She asked, the trembling becoming more and more intense. 

”If you ’ve opened one before, you would know how to open it again. ” She said, a faint smile leaking from her voice. 

Ming Shufeng wasn ’t certain what that meant. After all, they spent months trying to find this location. When has she ever been here before? If she knew where it was, what was the point of the risk? Moreover, why visit a cache of treasure twice? Wouldn ’t you claim it all the first time around?! 

Her questions were endless.

”Haha, ” The cloaked woman chuckled, performing more and more rapid handseals that intensified the quaking of the ground.

Chink! Kink! Tiss! Bam!

A sound of a door being forcefully opened alongside revolving gears resounded. This lasted for several minutes until the ground beneath their feet started to lit up with runic characters that burned brightly with a warm light. The light of these characters shot into the sky, twisted and melded together and vanished into the sky.

Ming Shufeng gawked, looking at the bleak skies above.

Shoom!

A ray of light shot out from the darkly colored clouds, piercing the base of the volcanic mountains. An opening enough to fit a human revealed itself, leading to an unfathomable darkness.

The cloaked woman didn ’t hesitate, grabbing Ming Shufeng and shooting towards the opening.

A month later, a haggard and beaten handsome youth arrived at that very location once visited by two women. His eyes were calm, but brimming with killing intent. He murmured to himself, holding a badge that emitted a distinct heat, ”So there are other caches left behind by the Divine King. Good. Unlike the others, this should all be left for a single person. After this, we ’ll see if I can make you regret it or not Zhang Yu! ” Despite his calm expression, his voice was like a knife to the throat.

He activated the token, a light pierced into the sky, and descended soon after. An opening formed at the base of the volcanic mountain. He slowly walked towards the opening with tightened fists.
