Paragon of Sin

Chapter 851: Inside A Memory

d silent. There were no tables, chairs, or paintings, and all the doors were painted jet-black. The entire mansions insides were different.

It was a little scary.

“Oh? A death?” Wei Wuyin rubbed his smokey chin contemplatively, floating further inside the mansion. He arrived in the hallway. It was spacious, and monotonous, with numerous doors lined on both sides extending into the far distance. There were no effective limits to their numbers.

Wei Wuyin floated towards a door. He eyed it with a bright glow in his eyes. “Equally spaced apart. Interesting,” this wasnt the first time he saw something like this. It was truly a memory kept hidden by the subconscious mind, buried deep. It might extend to the soul.

“Why death?” This type of setting meant a change of perspective, the typical perception of death. Wei Wuyin had seen it in the memories of both Jing Jiu and Jiao Ning. They were often accompanied by times of death. Sometimes it was a relative, a friend, but it was always someone important.

Wei Wuyin decided to continue exploring. It didnt matter where he went, the end result was the same. He flashed through the hallway of endless doors until he settled onto a single one.

“Weeeeee! Hahaha!” The jubilant laughter of a young girl resounded again. It originated from a door, one completely white in color. While the mind could restrain itself, it often contradicted itself by making it easy to find if looked for.

He didnt hesitate to open the door.

BOOSH!

The door flung open. There was a bright, blinding radiance emitting from within. Unfortunately, his eyes were that of his Celestial Eyes of Spiritual Divinity, and illusions and truth were instilled into them so this last layer of protection was ineffective. He entered the room.

When Wei Wuyin came in, he saw a young girl, likely three years old, with short blonde hair. She was playing with some porcelain dolls and toy ships. She seemed to be reenacting a grand voyage. Her Qi was actively controlling them.

“A person without worries; Its not fair for you to suffer a tragedy,” looking at the young Lin Xianxei, Wei Wuyin felt a little saddened. But he didnt know why this was a meaningful memory. He didnt smell the scent of blood or decay, so a battle hadnt happened.

Who died?

Suddenly, Wei Wuyin looked at the window across the room. A black shadow flashed within the room, disguised entirely. The girl was playing without noticing the shadow, but it grew and grew until it overtook the entire room.

She noticed then. Looked around, her eyes bright and innocent. Those eyes filled with budding intelligence brightened, and those rosy cheeks were uplifted by a joyous smile, “Hello, mister! Wanna play with me again?”

“Not today…” The shadow spoke as a mouth formed in the wall. its teeth were white and monstrous, like a shark about to eat its prey. Its voice was indistinguishable.

A shadowy hand emerged from in front of the girl. She didnt seem bothered by it, just a little sad by the refusal. “Tomorrow?” Hope sparkled in her eyes.

“Yeah…tomorrow. Well play as much as you want,” the shadow said, revealing a large, ugly smile. The shadowy hand pressed against the young girls head!

“AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!” A gruesome scream shook the entire world, fragmenting it into several thousand pieces.

Wei Wuyin watched silently, inspecting the shadow intently.

“Huh, so she died.”

The memory ended. Wei Wuyin found himself once again outside the city, floating above the sky. The memory had restarted, and when he heard the laughter again that shook the world, he couldnt help but think to himself.How did she die when shes alive? Unless she thinks she died here, but thats…

Wei Wuyin couldnt quite figure it out.

He decided to inspect her earlier memories, finding her first fully-formed and meaningful memory. It was of her mother. She had them, so she didnt die. Moreover, the later memories were consistent. It seemed like nothing changed, that this particular memory never happened.

Imagination?

What three-year-old imagines their own death at the hands of a nefarious figure? Then, they sealed it off because it was too traumatic?

“What the fuck…”

In that case, there was only one possibility.

Wei Wuyin left Lin Xianxeis mind, returning to the real world. His expression was extremely solemn.

“Wei Wuyin?” Wen Mingna called out. This jolted Wei Wuyin out of his own thoughts.

He removed his hand from Lin Xianxeis head, saying: “I know where it is. That aside, I dont know if I should help her out.” Wei Wuyin stared at Lin Xianxeis sleeping countenance.

“She needs help?” Wen Mingna looked at Lin Xianxei curiously. Was she diseased or something?

“A lot of it. Whatever, its not my problem,” Wei Wuyin softly sighed. But when he recalled Lin Xianxeis status as a Blesseds companion, the Heavenly Daos must be setting up ways for Lin Ming to help her out. Well, unless it was deliberately done by the Heavenly Daos design.

“Lets go to the Paramount Jade Realm,” Wei Wuyin said.
