Paragon of Sin

Chapter 659 - 654: Plans Issues Difficulties!

”Where is this? ” Wei Wuyin exited the Void Portal alongside Bai Lin. They swiftly halted their flight, investigating their surroundings with all their means. They discovered that they were currently within void-blank space. There was no solar star here. 

Wei Wuyin ’s silver eyes and Bai Lin ’s gold eyes flared with scintillating radiance, observing the world before them. ”Keep your flames, ” Wei Wuyin said. Bai Lin dispersed her nirvanic flames, removing the source of bright light. As she was, she was like a miniaturized bright solar star in a dimly lit environment. 

Fortunately, her swift response and Wei Wuyin ’s quick thinking prevented others from easily noticing their presence. 

Bai Lin didn ’t cry out, remaining tactfully silent. Her vocal range was extremely powerful, capable of shaking space and even alerting others. You could feel her cry through the trembling of fixed space. This was the very reason why Wei Wuyin could still notice her distinct cries within the Dark Void. 

It further suggests that the Dark Void is within the natural environment of beasts, making them incredibly adaptable existences. 

Wei Wuyin kept his emission of spiritual light at the minimum as he observed his surroundings with his Celestial Eyes. When the Heavenly Daos had influenced him to change his coordinates, he suspected that he would land on a planet or lunar satellite, not in the middle of void-blank space without any signs of life. 

What type of fortune could be here? 

After finding nothing within an area of several thousand miles, he calmed down his overly taut mind as he observed the Heavenly Daos influence. ’It brought me here for a reason, right? ’ According to his knowledge, the variety of karmic fortune for Blessed was different for each, tailor-made for them.

Long Chen ’s fortuitous encounters surrounded beautiful, talented women, with the only notable distinction being the meeting with Wu Yu. While there were likely others, Wei Wuyin could deduce at least this much. 

As for his own, it geared towards opportunities to be grasped, not counting how it benefited his subordinates and lovers. Every karmic encounter so far, even those that the Black Skeleton had mentioned earlier in his life, had been opportunities with min-max which stressed his strength, comprehension, knowledge, intelligence, courage, tactics, and decision-making. 

If he didn ’t have the keen insight to observe others closely, the knowledge to gain an understanding of innate physiques and how to awaken them, not taking this subject lightly, he might ’ve missed Na Xinyi during their hunt. If he didn ’t risk his life, he wouldn ’t have obtained that essence stone that propelled him into the Qi Condensation Realm while he was extremely poor. 

If his principles were merciless and his thoughts short-sighted, he would have stolen the saber of that blacksmith. If he had done so, he would ’ve obtained a decently suitable qi weapon, but missed out on a tailor-made, hand-crafted, absolutely grateful saber.

The Yin-Yang Godsphere was bestowed to him by Qing Qiumu ’s father only because he noticed his presence, revealing his talent and skill. It eventually led to him reaching the False Reality Phase with a calculated risk.

If he didn ’t have the courage to fight the Ash Dragon City Lord, to strive to snatch his possessions, not counting the Heavenly Daos blindness due to the Bloodline of Sin, he would obtain nothing. Every last karmic encounter followed this logic. All the Heavenly Daos did was influence certain events and individuals, opening up certain opportunities for him to grasp.

This suggests that most, not all, of his karmic fortune was based on his own decision-making and ability. He could obtain nothing or far, far more than the Heavenly Daos could ever calculate. With the Bloodline of Sin, he knew this was extremely beneficial to him. The Heavenly Daos was unable to properly understand him, fooled by the Bloodline of Sin, always underestimating his means and methods.

He soon realized there was no additional influence or hints from the Heavenly Daos. As one would expect with his type of karmic fortune. After leading him to the water, he would still have to drink himself. Whether he decided to use his hands or find a bucket, that was all on him. 

His karmic fortune was to be here, at this moment. After thinking this, his eyes sharpened. 

A 210.1 karmic luck deduction was massive for an opportunity that he could miss. By all means, he could travel again through the Void Portal, reaching his previously intended location after a brief rest.

”Keep your eyes open, ” Wei Wuyin transmitted to Bai Lin. Whatever their purpose, it was his to discover and find out. To grasp that elusive opportunity alongside its dangers.

Wei Wuyin didn ’t fly without purpose. He pushed his Celestial Eyes to their limits, causing his pupils to faintly reveal a pulsing formation of the Celestial Eyes of Spiritual Divinity. His perception in void-blank space was not infinite. He couldn ’t grasp everything within a single glance, only capable of comfortably observing several ten thousand miles of distance in his line of sight. Everything else looked like floating rocks or dots in the distance.

He didn ’t dare to carelessly spread out his spiritual sense. The dangers of void-blank space was not to be underestimated, and he didn ’t wish to trigger anything untoward or reveal his presence carelessly. 

Wei Wuyin was unaware that three genuine Ascended were just slightly a hundred thousand miles away, alongside a few Mystic Star and Astral Core Realm experts. His spiritual strength could ’ve easily reached such limits if stretched outwards, but his location would ’ve been revealed to them all almost instantly. He had just avoided being discovered, likely silenced with extreme prejudice due to his vigilance and caution.

The issue with this type of karmic fortune was the lethal risks involved. It was foolhardy to release your spiritual sense with wild abandon in a territory you know nothing of. His mindfulness kept him from a chase. 

After several minutes of observation, his Celestial Eyes observed a floating rock tha gave off a strange aura. It seemed to be a fragment of a planet, broken off by an attack. He felt faint traces of fire force within.

Wei Wuyin patted Bai Lin. ”Move there. Don ’t ignite yourself. ” 

Seeing how solemn Wei Wuyin was, Bai Lin took on the same attitude. She softly flapped her wings with little force, slowly making her way to that direction without creating any outrageous disturbance in space. She smoothly sailed through the Dark Void with minimal movement. After knowing that the Tiangou existed, she was well-aware that beings and existences beyond her imagination existed. 

They soared for twenty minute and only traveled a few miles until they arrived at a chunk of rock. Wei Wuyin neared it, his eyes piercing the rock and analyzing its entirety. He discovered that the fire force was indeed present, and it belonged to a Temporal Eye Phase cultivator, someone at the Eighth Stage of the Astral Core Realm. 

It was fresh.

Perhaps a few months old? 

The chunk was roughly the size of a small boulder, fragmented and broken off by force. Whoever hit this object did so with tremendous force, and it wasn ’t the target, just a casualty. Its small size could ’ve been easily missed with all this floating debris and vast space. 

The two landed on the fragmented rock. Bai Lin plunged her claws into it for a grip as she leaned closer for Wei Wuyin to touch. With a faint rub, Wei Wuyin frowned. 

”This rock has something in it. But it feels strange yet familiar. Have I sensed this before? ” His frown deepened as he contemplated. His Celestial Eyes only saw fire-attributed astral force and the natural minerals for its composition. It seemed to have faint deposits and traces of gases. 

Bai Lin pecked the rock softly, breaking off a piece with her beak and biting it. She licked it, curious. Her actions were quite interesting, and Wei Wuyin was about to inform her to be cautious, but her eyes flared softly and she gulped the piece whole. 

”… ” 

After a few seconds, she pecked again and consumed another portion. But this time, she spat it out in disgust. 

Wei Wuyin was confused. ”Undercooked? ” He jokingly said, but Bai Lin answered with something that made his heart quiver.

”It wasn ’t the same! Disgusting. Just plain rock. The other piece was delicious. ” Bai Lin said with a hint of anger. She felt as if she was tricked by this rock, so she dug her claws in deeper and started to break off pieces in her frustration. 

Wei Wuyin chuckled for a bit, but then his expression changed. It wasn ’t the same? He inspected the rocks and found that all the rocks were the same, in composition and everything. How could it not be the same? 

Unless…

”Wait! Stop, ” Wei Wuyin urged. He hurriedly moved to gather the broken pieces and inspected them. ”I ’ve sensed this before, and a few times too. The veils? ” He immediately realized where he recognized this strange, elusive familiarity. Every female outsider he observed had it. They concealed their looks! 

Tools? Mystic tools!

Even his Celestial Eyes couldn ’t sense through it. And if he followed this thinking and Bai Lin ’s statement, then this was an ore deposit that he couldn ’t sense. There were portions that were normal and portions that weren ’t. The fragmented rock must ’ve flown out during the mining process, likely the early process of explosive blasting.

This was basic mining practices used in the mortal world to extract ore and discover orebodies. But if cultivators were to replicate it, then this would be able to send entire pieces of rock through the Dark Void. This was especially so if gravity wasn ’t very strong. 

”This rock? Does it contain pieces of mystic-grade ore? Is this my fortune? With this, I can leave and sell this off for an unfathomably high amount, can ’t I? ” Wei Wuyin considered. This was likely his fortune. If he had just left or went to recover his astral force before leaving, ignoring this error, or just lacked the means to discover the rock, then he would ’ve been left with nothing.

The Heavenly Daos, huh? 

However, just this little?

If this was a small piece blown off casually, then there must be a mine somewhere. Right?! 

But if it was being mined, then there must be miners. If they could mine out this ore, there might be Mystic Ascendant Realm cultivators present to oversee the process. However, a mine often contained a huge amount of resources within. If mystic-graded materials were valuable, then what if he could obtain the entire mine?!

Greed was always ill-advised to have, but ambition was not. He could only make some plans. Because he…was not going to give up such a great treasure without trying. 

After running through some simulations, testing out his thoughts and means, his eyes lit with palpable excitement.

”Bai Lin, lets find our mine. ”
