Paragon of Sin

Chapter 516: Unjust Death

n the center.

He was feeling incredibly uncomfortable hearing those screams, wanting to stop the spell formation, but he couldn ’t speak as the gravitational forces were infused into his Astral Soul containing traces of Xiuyin ’s soul. It was a miracle that Xiuyin could.

But after those three minutes were over, the screaming finally came to a sudden and abrupt end.

And it wasn ’t because Xiuyin had grown tired. 

Her head sagged to the side, lifelessly limp and her eyes were blank. The soul-ripping pain had caused her Sea of Consciousness to rupture apart, unable to withstand such outrageous torture. 

”… ” Tang Xingyun turned her head, noticing the issue. The extraction was still going, but the life from Xiuyin ’s body was flowing away at a rapid pace. Her eyes widened as she panicked, ”Save her! Stop it! ” Yet the spell formation continued operating, mercilessly taking from Xiuyin and delivering it to Lin Ming.

If they stopped, Venerable Spiritwalker could easily save Xiuyin ’s life.

Bai Yuxi was behind Xiuyin, directly, so she saw the entire process from beginning to end, including that moment when her Sea of Consciousness shattered apart, and her body fell limp. She bit her lips. ’This is an Evil Method. There were risks, ’ is what she thought to justify this situation.

”STOP! ” Tang Xingyun regretted not asking this earlier, and she aggressively demanded it with an imperious disposition that befitted a noblewoman. 

”Choose! ” Venerable Spiritwalker ’s voice resounded. Tang Xingyun and Bai Yuxi were violently shaken by the spiritual impact of her voice, awakening them to an alert state. ”I can stop the formation and save her. If I do, you three will suffer irreparable damage to your souls as a backlash, and that man of yours, he ’ll lose all of his cultivation for sure, maybe even his life. So choose. ”

An Evil Method ’s Spell Formation that required an Ascended wasn ’t a simple thing. It was given the classification as ’Evil ’ for a reason. 

Tang Xingyun instantly went silent, her eyes reflecting complex emotions. To sacrifice herself for an attendant? To sacrifice Lin Ming ’s future? To sacrifice all of their futures? 

”Continue! Don ’t stop, no matter what. ” Bai Yuxi said with the utmost determination. She was next, but she was fearless. She already paid an extreme price that would affect her future for Lin Ming, so she might as well push it further. 

They remained silent as Xiuyin ’s Sea of Consciousness dissipated. Her soul energy was extracted in its entirety, giving it all to Lin Ming, and thereby ending her chances of resurrection. 

Her body went extremely limp, like a true corpse.

She was dead.

Lin Ming ’s eyes were explosively red as he seemed to want to scream to the heavens above and the hells below. He didn ’t expect anyone to die for him. But they had started this decision—there was no turning back. 

”…Continue. ” Tang Xingyun ’s eyes noticeably dimmed, her teeth were gritted, and her fists were clenched. Xiuyin had been her attendant since she was a little girl. The amount of regret she held in her heart was endless.

The formation went into a brief pause, needing a few minutes before Bai Yuxi ’s turn. 

Outside the Sky Zephyr Temple, Wei Wuyin was floating quietly as he observed the fluctuations of energy within. His Eye of Immortality kicked into effect, seemingly restoring his Celestial Eyes to their normal state after his suppression of it ended. With the agreement made, there was no need for him to continue with the act.

”How unfortunate, ” he quietly remarked. His eyebrows furrowed slightly, adding: ”Why did that Ascendant let her die? ” 

While he ’d never seen the formation, he was familiar with a Mystic Ascendant ’s power after it surged into him. There was no way a person of that level couldn ’t save her, or at least her soul. Even Wu Yu in his spirit form saved Hong Ru, and that other, evil-eyed skinny old man restored He Yanglei with a finger tap. 

Yet…

”I have my assumptions, but clearly this person ’s quite ruthless. ” He shook his head in pity. An unjust death.

As time passed, Bai Yuxi ’s spatial force and uniquely refined mana that enabled the mixture of Soul Idol, Spatial Resonance, Gravitational Forces, and various other powers to form a Worldly Domain was extracted from her. Unlike the girl, she only grunted in pain.

If one examined this, it was clear that Tang Xingyun suffered very little pain. That girl suffered pain that wasn ’t the slightest bit suppressed, forcefully causing her Sea of Consciousness to break, and Bai Yuxi experienced mild pain. This was clearly deliberate, inconsistent, and incredibly suspicious.

His theories on what happened was fortified, getting a little clearer picture. 

But the process mattered not, the end result was everything!

Wei Wuyin could feel a unique power forge within Lin Ming ’s dantian. From his body, a faint World Pressure leaked!
