Paragon of Sin

Chapter 688 - 683: Burn The Hunted And Hunters

ns. The two couldn ’t escape the Shadow Eggs orbit without abandoning it, and Bai Lin couldn ’t unleash her full strength without endangering Wei Wuyin. 

As she chased for nearly ten seconds, three lights exited from the Shadow Egg, two blue and one gold. They formed three men, all of which had half-masks protecting their identities. With their black robes, even their figures were concealed. 

They were three Soul of Mysticism Phase experts, all at the Second Stage of the Mystic Ascendant Realm. Their auras were robust. They all weren ’t inferior to the likes of Venerable Kun Yiming and Venerable Bluecloud, two experienced and aged Ascended. 

”Is that a freaking fire phoenix? ” The man covered by a faint golden glow ludicrously asked. 

”Impossible! They ’re legends! How could it be? ” While the Golden Phoenix Fruit existed, that was only awakening the bloodline potential of certain avian species, capable of allowing their strength to elevate and develop certain unique abilities, but that was fundamentally different than seeing a live phoenix!

This was similar to how some dragons had the bloodline of a True Dragon hidden within, but wasn ’t actually one themselves. Until they stepped onto their Ancestral Path to their origins, becoming genuine Genesis Beasts, they were merely awakening a tiny portion of their true potential. 

”… ” The last Ascended remained silent. But his aura started to fluctuate wildly, excitement betrayed by the shimmering light he emitted. His thoughts were as clear as the stars in the Dark Void! 

The other two noticed this. There was no need to speak any words between them. They were cultivators who plundered with abandon, reaching their levels and strength with vicious means. How could they not want to capture, enslave, or just extract the essence of a genuine phoenix?! 

The three lights exploded outwards, chasing after Bai Lin with incredible speeds. They zipped and zoomed through the Dark Void. In mere moments, they were already on Bai Lin ’s tail. When they felt the power of Bai Lin ’s flames, their expressions changed, but after reinforcing their own protections, they flew forward with dark glints in their eyes.

The black-robed man traveling alongside the woman observed this development, a smirk surfaced on his lips. It was effusing rambunctious greed. 

Two being chased; three tailing behind; Bai Lin in the middle as they traversed in circles. There was a strange, almost agreed upon stalemate formed. The three men behind didn ’t launch attacks, also reluctant to unintentionally damage the Shadow Egg, while the two in front merely used their greatest movement arts to buy time. 

Bai Lin was still enraged, but she restrained herself. She feared what they feared. Yet two different groups were entirely unaware of the others ’ intentions. 

”… ” However, this balance started to cause the smirk on the black-robed man ’s face to become a neutral expression. There was something amiss. Is this fire beast unable to launch long-range attacks? He was prepared to defend and redirect these attacks, but none came. 

Then, that neutral expression became a downward arc filled with an anxious feeling. This feeling became more uncomfortable the longer time passed. Something wasn ’t right. When he saw the three lights behind the phoenix, his head tilted slightly to the side, seeing the Shadow Egg.

Then…

Without warning…

His pupils constricted violently! 

”No! The heat its emitting isn ’t right! ” He fearfully shouted, causing the woman to turn to him, confused by his words. She kept her duties well, infusing her power into the array to repair the formations that comprised it while simultaneously isolating the fire raging within the Shadow Egg to prevent it from influencing the formations. 

Without hesitation, the black-robed man diverted his path of retreat. He directly left!

”… ” The four Ascended froze as they watched the black robed man turn into a comet of black light, then vanishing into the distance in a flash. He had used his spatial powers to move a vast distance! 

Speechless, the four were unable to react properly. While they thought about leaving too, it was too late!

An explosive burst of power erupted from far, far into the distance. The aura was quite distinct, but also weak. It felt as if it belonged to a Gravity Emission Phase expert, unleashing their aura out wildly! 

The others gave the area a brief glance, but they were unable to sense anything in particular. It was strange. But then they heard something sizzling. 

”AHHHHHH! ” A shriek of horror brought the three men ’s attention back to their target, and what they saw shook their entire hearts! 

”HELP ME! AHHHH! GAAAHH!! HE-HELP!!! ” In bursts of screams, cries for help rung out in their senses. Their eyes all shrunk into needlepoints. At the moment, they witnessed the sight of a large fire phoenix engulfing the woman entirely, as if she was eaten whole. She was trapped within the confines of its body, unable to escape as she formed continuous wards around herself. 

She raged and raged, releasing everything she had, but those wards were burning, sizzling as if being cooked. Her skin that was soft, pristine, was bubbling as if roasted in an oven. Her defenses were useless! The harsh heat ravaged her body, her clothes, and her life.

In moments, her mystic-graded attire was incinerated into nothing, combusting into flames! It caused the woman to become a flaming person, and no one could enjoy her nude body as she shrieked out in pain and panic! Even if one wanted to look, they would only find burnt flesh and melting bones. 

Ghastly.

The three felt their scalps tingle.

An…Ascended…

…Burned alive?

It was only then that they realized that the fire phoenix ’s heat was pulsating, distorting fixed space until it seemed as if it was quaking like a mirage in the distance. The sides of the Shadow Egg in close proximity were melting with a bright redness! 

The words of the black-robed man that escaped resounded in their heads. The heat wasn ’t right…
