Paragon of Sin

Chapter 853: External Vaults

Chapter 852: Absurdly Rich

“…Ugh…” Lin Xianxei softly groaned as she gradually regained consciousness. Her vision was blurred, indistinct, and wet. She reached towards her face, feeling a stream of recent tears drop from the sides of her eyes.

‘Im crying? She was baffled by the discovery. After gathering her mental focus, she began to recall the sequence of events that had unfolded before she lost consciousness. She was talking about the rumor with Wei Wuyin and the Earthly Saints. Lin Ming and her mother were there!

“…!” She jolted awake. Her upper body lifted upwards, and she looked at the scene before her. She felt herself being on a flying being. Her hands grasped the feathers, and she couldnt help but look to her sides. Bai Lins wings were fully spread as she glided in circles.

“Youre finally awake.” A gentle, comforting voice drew Lin Xianxeis attention. She saw Wei Wuyin receiving a jade from Han Yuhei. They seemed to be talking about something. The voice belonged to a beautiful young woman. Her eyes seemed to contain heaven and earth, time, and fate.

‘A Heavenly Seer? She remembered the woman that stayed on Bai Lin, not speaking a single word at all.

“My names Wen Mingna. Its nice to meet you,” Wen Mingna introduced herself politely. Lin Xianxeis left eyebrow lifted as she eyed Wen Mingna cautiously. “He kidnapped me?”

“Youre rather calm for a kidnapped victim,” Wen Mingna jokingly commented.

“Its not my first time.” Lin Xianxeis breathing leveled out, and she finally allowed her spiritual sense to be released, grasping her surroundings. She was currently in the Sky Layer of Origin.

“An experienced victim then. Maybe you can give me some tips,” Wen Mingna kept engaging with Lin Xianxei. Since learning of her predicament, she had been intrigued by this girl.

However, Lin Xianxei didnt find this amusing at all, so she outright asked: “Why?”

“If I said Wei Wuyin decided to abscond with you, intending to take you as his wife, away from the sect so that you two can live out your lives, cultivating and enjoying each others company, would you believe me?” Wen Mingna faintly smiled. She was deeply aware of what the Grand Seer did, so she wanted to see how powerful those effects were.

“…” Lin Xianxei froze. She remained still for three full seconds before she regained herself. She breathed out softly, “I wouldnt.”

Wen Mingna gave her a long, long look. It was unmoving and unchanging, and Lin Xianxei felt a strange sense of pressure enveloping her. Was what she said the truth? The words from the Grand Seer pulsed within her mind like a fresh memory. She couldnt help but slightly gulp.

Wen Mingna broke her gaze, brightly smiling as she said, “Youd be right.”

Feeling as if she was toyed with, Lin Xianxei frustratingly asked: “Then why?” Why would Wei Wuyin take her? And how? She could barely remember anything but a loud clarion cry, and then everything went blank.

“I dont know. But does it matter? Youre safe, and you remain chaste. As a kidnapped victim and a beautiful virgin woman, thats the best takeaway. Youll be sent back in a bit.” Wen Mingna informed her, ensuring her of the situation.

“You dont know?” She looked at Wei Wuyin as he spoke to Han Yuhei at length. They seemed to be discussing something important, but Han Yuheis frown suggested some difficulties were met. “Why do I feel like youre lying? That you know?”

Wen Mingna kept her smile, remaining silent.

“…Is my mother okay?” Lin Xianxei softly asked with genuine concern. She had tried to take the blame, but she wasnt able to due to Si Des involvement and knowledge. It was shared instead, but that didnt abate the situation.

“Should be,” Wen Mingna answered. She didnt think Wei Wuyin intended to bring the mother-daughter duo harm, so it was unlikely. Furthermore, he could act openly since he was in control of the entire Elementus Domain at this point. Even the two Earthly Saints were following him around obediently, and one met their untimely demise at the hands of Wu Yu, his Alchemic Knight.

Wei Wuyin had finished talking to Han Yuhei, walking toward the two with a neutral expression as the latter vanished. Right now, his thoughts were completely inscrutable. “Youre awake. Well, thats good.”

“What do you want?” Lin Xianxei slowly rose, trying to regain a sense of strength to have this conversation. But when she looked at Wei Wuyin, she felt a sense of deep inferiority within her heart. She had been taken away with but a thought, unable to defend herself, a sense of confidence and safety had been abolished within her heart.

“Want?” Wei Wuyin lifted his left brow, eyeing Wen Mingna. “What if I told you I-“

“Want to run away with me? Take me as your wife? Live out our lives together?” Lin Xianxei folded her arms against her chest and revealed her well-hidden yet exceptional bust size, giving Wei Wuyin a clearly disbelieving gaze.

“Haha, great minds.” Wei Wuyin laughed as he gave Wen Mingna a thumbs-up. She smiled in return. They both wished to see her reaction, but of course for different reasons. But they both wanted to test various powers and facts. The Heavenly Daos influence is in direct contention with the Bloodline of Sin on one side and the Grand Seers abilities on the other.

“So?” Wei Wuyin urged, wanting to see what her response was.

“So? Youre not serious, right?” Lin Xianxei didnt know if these two were being serious or not. She started to doubt herself. After all, there was no real reason to kidnap her, right?

“I am if you are,” Wei Wuyin firmly stated.

“I…” Lin Xianxei could no longer hold her disbelief. But she didnt really know Wei Wuyin outside of the stories, and the times she briefly saw him from afar. She didnt have any strong feelings towards this person or thoughts of a union. But its not as if her time pretending to be his fiancée hadnt generated some thoughts.

The possibility was always there.

“Haha,” Wei Wuyin laughed heartily. “I think youre intelligent, gorgeous, and strong-willed, suiting my tastes exactly, but I wont take a wife so casually. Theres a way for these things to proceed unless youre fine with being a concubine of mine. Then, we can leave right this instant, host a ceremony and announce it to the entire world.” Of course, whether this was Wei Wuyins true thoughts or not, only he knew. At most, his actions might allow Lin Xianxei some freedom from the Heavenly Daos influence. What she did with that bit of freedom was hers to choose.

“Concubine?” Lin Xianxeis expression darkened. She wouldnt be someones concubine. A background woman without any real power or position in the family. It would be humiliating! She was rather prideful. She was the disciple of an Earthly Saint and Saintess of a World Sect, after all.

“Well, if you dont like it, then its best we take this slow, no?” Wei Wuyin grinned, and then he waved his hand. Bai Lin was conversing with Si De, receiving details of all of Wei Wuyins escapades in the Four Extreme Continent. Si De was quite the storyteller, exaggerating without a hint of holding back praise. A total shameless rendition, and Bai Lin loved it.

Bai Lin was clearly amused by it all. When Wei Wuyin waved his hand, she released a clarion cry and shot down from the Sky Layer, returning above the courtyard.

Han Yuhei and Zhang Ziyi were already there. Below them were Lin Ming and Lin Xianxian, who were looking on with various emotions. It had only been two hours, but it felt like two weeks to them. They were abnormally stressed. It was only when they saw Lin Xianxeis unharmed that they breathed a sigh of relief.

“You want to go to the Paramount Jade Realm?” Zhang Ziyi questioned as Bai Lin approached. The Paramount Jade Realm was the first secret realm of the Jade Element Sect. Originally, secret realms were solely used as vaults to conceal treasures. But over time, the various mystic-tier forces established unique cultivation grounds and trials to temper their talents.

It became standard to do so. While they didnt have complete ecological systems to develop resources or their own independent Solar Stars like World Realms, their spatial stability was oftentimes stronger, and they could store various energies that could be extracted without damaging the living beings inside. Mostly because it wasnt a genuine world.

The World Realm trials were archaic; the Chosen trials, specifically for the True Element Sect, were held in the Ultimate Elementus Realm. The Paramount Jade Realm had mainly stayed as a Legacy Ground, containing various spells, arts, and cultivation methods of the multiple geniuses of the sect. At some point, every expert wants to leave behind the amalgamation of their efforts, so they used this locations.

In the event of war, planets can be destroyed with a flick of a finger by a powerful cultivator, but secret realms are immensely sturdy. The Shell World Pearl was an instantaneously conjured secret realm that could withstand blows from Earthly Saints, so one could see the sheer stability of these realms. Furthermore, they were hidden between the folds of fixed space, so finding them was outrageously difficult.

They could be moved to different locations as well, so a sect could send all their forces inside a secret realm and relocate them easily. The World-Shifting Net was a porportable secret realm tool that could accomplish this, taking trillions with ease.

“I do,” Wei Wuyin answered Zhang Ziyi. He originally hoped for the Everlasting Spirit of the Nine Flames and Wen Mingna to lead him to another clue. He hadnt expected that Lin Xianxei memories didnt just contain the location of Divine King Han Xei, including his current situation, but the details of the other version of the Celestial Eyes of Spiritual Divinity! Not only did she have details of it, she had read it once before!

While it was a cursory glance, he was excited to find it.

“Why?” Lin Xianxei hastily asked, her heart racing a little bit as she looked towards Lin Ming. She had done so much to have Lin Ming obtain the legacy in the Paramount Jade Realm! If Wei Wuyin entered, he had all the qualifications, no, with his Elemental Heart Intent, he had even more qualifications than Lin Ming to obtain it! How could she not feel a little panicked?

But then a thought shot through her mind. Wouldnt this be best? As she did, her gaze towards Lin Ming became odd…

“Just searching for something. No need to worry; I dont care about the legacy there. Its yours to have.” Wei Wuyin sent her through spiritual transmission, causing her eyes to widen uncontrollably with shock! He knew! He knew about the legacy!

How?!

“I have no issues with that, but what about these two liars?” Zhang Ziyi agreed without hesitation. Well, she didnt have much of a choice. However, she was unwilling to allow this Lin mother and daughter duo to have a pass.

“Them?” Wei Wuyin glanced at Lin Xianxian on the ground. He wouldnt be lying if he said he wasnt irked that his name was being used, and he felt an urge to make an example out of them so that the world knew, but he decided against it. The fate of this Lin Xianxei was already a little pitiful.

“Forget it. Just make sure everyone knows the truth, okay? And if you want to apologize for using my name, Im fine with accepting two beautiful maids.” Wei Wuyin joked with a chuckle.

“Okay!” A voice agreed with hesitation.

“…” Everyone was stunned as they turned to Lin Xianxian who had a beautiful smile. Did she just speak? Did she just say okay?

“I agree to be your maid, Master Wei!” Lin Xianxian clarified with an even louder voice. She, the Sect Master of the True Element Sect, even bowed as if accepting her new master.

“…” Wei Wuyin lifted a finger, his mouth on the verge of saying something but no words came out.

Woosh!

A figure arrived in a flash, standing before Wei Wuyin. It was none other than the Grand Knight of Neo-Dawn, Wu Yu! And he had the brightest of smiles alongside dozens of spatial rings floating above his palms. He was clearly extremely happy at this moment. “They were absurdly rich, Young Lord.”

“Rich?” Wei Wuyin couldnt help but blurt out, to which Wu Yu laughed loudly and replied: “ABSURDLY!”
