Paragon of Sin

Chapter 674 - 669: Wu Yus Return

in felt something was off. ”What was the rule? ” 

Wu Yu awkwardly laughed, ”The rule is specifically allowed in the case of a team winning the Mystic Ascendant category but losing the majority. The final victor can be determined by an All-Alchemic Clash. ”

”An All-Alchemic Clash? ” Wei Wuyin realized where Wu Yu ’s expression stemmed from. As if to echo his thoughts, Wu Yu continued: ”Yes. It ’ll be settled by the Mortal Sovereign Alchemists of the two sides. The reaction of the Main and Second Branch was quite vivid, even distorted into ugly sights. It was amusing. After all, the First and Third Branch had used your name. That Ma Zheng is quite shameless. ”

”… ” He hadn ’t even set foot on the Aeternal Sky Starfield, and he was being drawn into some civil conflict? The Golden Life Pavilion was to prove themselves to him, not embroil him in these troubles. 

”What ’s the purpose of all this? ” Wei Wuyin felt this was such an odd move on Ma Zheng ’s part. Perhaps it was a matter that was a long time coming, and his existence had only accelerated things. However, he wasn ’t sure what all this was for. To obtain ruling rights to the Golden Life Pavilion? Feels like this would splinter the entire pavilion into two. 

Wu Yu was swift in his reply: ”You ’ll be quite surprised. It ’s all to obtain a unique treasure! ”

”Oh? ” Now this was surprising! He had thought it was an attempt to seize the rights to rule or take leadership of the Golden Life Pavilion, not for a treasure. The term treasure wasn ’t used lightly in the cultivation world. Because it didn ’t relate to just some absurdly powerful weapon or exceptional tool, but an item of unfathomable means.

While in the Scarlet Solaris Sect, everyone had assumed that he was in possession of a cultivation treasure due to his rapid advancements and high battle prowess. Of course, it was only attributed to his lucky chances from the Heavenly Daos, hard work, and comprehensive talent. 

”What ’s special about this treasure? ” 

Wu Yu shook his head, ”I don ’t know. All I know is that its a treasure. Even its origins are concealed, and I tried to pry it from their lips, but they were tightly sealed on the matter. Ma Zheng did say that if you arrived, he ’d have no issue informing you. ” 

”They ’re not expecting me to arrive? ” Wei Wuyin was confused. They used his name, but what Wu Yu had just said suggested that Ma Zheng wasn ’t relying on him. Was there another play involved? Was this competition even important?

Wu Yu smiled at seeing Wei Wuyin ’s thoughtful expression, ”I thought the same. It seems to be a perfectly performed smokescreen. An incredibly powerful one too as the Golden Life Pavilion branches are deeply focused on this matter. It seems that Ma Zheng isn ’t so simple. ”

Wu Yu proceeded to explain the details of the competition, informing him that the All-Alchemic Clash wasn ’t for some time. Three years, in fact. This gave him plenty of time to decide if he wanted to participate. However, this competition was likely far from vital for Ma Zheng ’s final plot. 

”Here, all the materials and even more. Ma Zheng didn ’t skimp on the supply. ” Wu Yu handed him a spatial ring filled with astral-graded materials, enough to fill a small world realm. It was varied and vast. He was startled for a moment. The amount of resources here exceeded the Elementus Cache. There were some materials he didn ’t even recognize. 

Ma Zheng had happily supplied Wei Wuyin resources. This especially included materials meant for the Neo-Dawn Eclipse Pill. His intentions were abundantly clear. Likely this amount of wealth was insignificant to the Golden Life Pavilion as a whole. The desire to obtain the full support of the Golden Life Pavilion was growing.

”Maybe I should participate, if only to strengthen Ma Zheng ’s position. It might help his plans along, ” Wei Wuyin contemplated. The moment this thought formed in his mind, he furrowed his brows. What if Ma Zheng ’s plan was for him to arrive? No…it shouldn ’t be.

Wu Yu ’s arrival through the Dark Void hadn ’t been deliberately done. He would ’ve preferred using Wei Wuyin ’s Void Portal, but the Bing Clan had noticed him somehow. They were demanding answers, so he absconded away using the Golden Life Pavilion ’s Void Portal, reaching the Treasured Light Starfield and made his way over. However, he assured Wei Wuyin that there was no evidence of his crime or identity being leaked. They were suspecting him based on his strength, nothing more.

When Wei Wuyin heard this, his expression became sullen. The Bing Clan now had suspicions. 

Regardless, Wu Yu was now here. He could leave the Terra-Mystic Ore in his possession. Without this mountain on his shoulders, he was free to travel as he willed. 

”Where will you be going? ” Wu Yu couldn ’t help but ask. Could he be venturing to the Aeternal Sky Starfield? 

”At first, I was going to, but… ” 

Wei Wuyin looked at his right arm. Six days ago, he received that familiar sting.
