Paragon Of Sin - Chapter 612 - 607: Prelude To A Shaken World
Chapter 612 – 607: Prelude To A Shaken World
Na Xinyi had the fright of a lifetime! The three figures were vague, and she had only sensed them because of her newly formed Worldly Domain! She leapt upwards, her astral ward was erected, her palms out before her, and her stance was defensive!
If this was a group of assassins, she would fight with her life on the line! She was not some pretty flower, and had her fair share of deadly battles. While her achievements in battle paled in comparison to Long Chen, she was not to be underestimated.
If they sought her life, they should be ready to lose theirs! Her eyes were fiercely sharp, and her aura was absolutely tyrannical and chilled. With her rosy cheeks, she gave off a unique charm.
Wu Yu was briefly shocked by the aura unleashed by Na Xinyi, even more intensely when he discovered her Worldly Domain, but then he recalled Wu Baozhai's question before. His heart pounded after realizing why she asked this question.
'Did he create an alchemical product that can manifest a Domain Seed?! BEFORE the Realm World Phase?!' His thoughts were severely explosive, the revelation shattering his beliefs about cultivation. While his reaction wasn't too intense, being exposed to the absolutely terrifying brilliance of alchemists in the form of the King of Everlore, he had never seen such a blatant disregard for convention!
At most, the King of Everlore or other alchemists could retroactively change a cultivator's talent, not have them skip four full levels!! The Everlore Ascension Pill was one of the most highlighting pills of retroactively changing a cultivator's talent.
The unique Everlore Essence formed in the pill can change the Mortal State level of an Astral Soul. Essentially, no other pill has been able to rival its effects in his knowledge. At its greatest form, it can retroactively give a cultivator the Zenith Mortal State, one of the requirements to reach the Second Stage of the Mystic Ascendant, the Soul of Mysticism Phase!
Those at the 9th Mortal State were unable to transform their Astral Soul to a Mystic Soul. It just wasn't able to perform the deed, yet that only gave the qualifications to ascend beyond Mortal Limits. If lacking, the most a cultivator could reach was the Mystic Star Phase.
That ninth-grade alchemical product, albeit low-tier, was capable of giving one the qualifications to ascend! But that wasn't even close to what he just saw…
Na Xinyi, at the Soul Idol Phase, had formed a Domain Seed! Furthermore, it wasn't haphazardly formed, filled with instability! It was no different than a genuine Worldly Domain! Even False Realmlords lacked qualities of this Worldly Domain!
Wu Yu abruptly vanished.
Ma Sujiang and Jun Baiyin left their concealment, revealing themselves before Na Xinyi. Jun Baiyin was shocked by Wu Yu's vanishing act, but Ma Sujiang wasn't. She stepped forward, holding a dignified expression that carried traces of severity. She couldn't even maintain her business-friendly smile.
Her eyes fixed on Na Xinyi, inspecting her thoroughly with her senses. She was about to move forward when her eyes widened slightly. Wu Yu had just sent her a vicious warning to not act carelessly. This woman before he wasn't just a normal mortal, his Young Lord's fiancé. Furthermore, reminding her that they were to act in the shadows.
Ma Sujiang was a little embarrassed at her thoughts, almost about to forcefully extract the Domain Seed from Na Xinyi, and swiftly regained her composure. She regained an amicable smile, taking a step back, sending a message to Jun Baiyin.
Jun Baiyin was astonished by Ma Sujiang's restrained actions. It seemed Na Xinyi's backing was a little special, especially since she left the questioning to her. She had a bitter smile. Clearly from that unknown Venerable to vanish and Ma Sujiang to delegate her desires to another, this gorgeous woman with a natural Yin Physique wasn't to be offended.
Two Ascended acting in such a strange manner to a mere mortal, and a Soul Idol nonetheless!
"There's no need for you to be alarmed. I'm Jun Baiyin, Palace Master of the Dark Yin Palace. You're Na Xinyi, the new arrival from the Everlore Starfield, correct?" Jun Baiyin decided to not approach this with an aloft like normally does with the other members of the sect. This woman was clearly not of a normal status.
While Ma Sujiang had said that all those from the Everlore Starfield were being watched by a faction in the Everlore Association, and she shouldn't do anything untoward against them without expecting swift consequences, she never thought it was only fueled by one existence.
Na Xinyi was startled by Jun Baiyin. The Palace Master herself?! Considering the aura of Jun Baiyin was beyond her senses, it made sense that she was an Ascended. At least, she exceeded the Astral Core Realm.
She still remained vigilant, looking towards Ma Sujiang who seemed to have ill-intent earlier. While she exuded nothing now, it still made her weary. But in her mind, that woman had restrained herself due to the presence of the Palace Master.
Jun Baiyin realized Na Xinyi's concerns. She comforted, "This is the Assistant Manager of the Golden Life Pavilion's Third Branch, Venerable Ma Sujiang. She's here for business."
"I am Na Xinyi. Disciple greets Palace Master Purewhite," Na Xinyi relaxed and respectfully bowed. There was no reason for Ascended to be amicable to her without cause, so it had to be genuine. Still, she remained vigilant.
"This junior greets Venerable Ma Sujiang," Na Xinyi bowed to Ma Sujiang as well. She didn't want to be neglectful for these beings whose cultivation exceeded Mortal Limits. She didn't even ask about the third figure. Clearly, that person didn't feel the need to stay after being discovered.
Jun Baiyin gave off a soft smile, giving her an enchanting appearance. Even Na Xinyi was shocked by how beautiful Jin Baiyin was, feeling slightly inferior. But when she thought about their sizes, Na Xinyi realized she was slightly better, a little more firm up top and rounder beneath. It was merely that charm produced by pure yin that elevated her beyond her, not appearance.
"Little Xinyi, how about showing me your Worldly Domain again? I'm quite curious how you formed it." When Na Xinyi was startled, her Worldly Domain receded likely because of her unfamiliarity with it, so they couldn't perceive all its traits.
Na Xinyi frowned, thinking about if she should. After all, her Domain Seed was formed by Wei Wuyin's Alchemical Product. She wasn't certain if it'll cause troubles for him. The concept having a Worldly Domain at the Soul Idol Phase was likely inestimable in value. She could feel that from how her Astral Soul reacted.
Even now, she felt that many questions she had towards Spatial Resonance were finally solved. For example, the essence of fixed space and its innate energies. She felt impossibly close to it. Wasn't this a straight path to the Realm World Phase? Furthermore, the most important aspect was that one could face the purely lethal astral tribulation of the Seventh Stage with a Worldly Domain!
In the end, she decided to not keep it a secret. She feared her reluctance would cost her, and there was no way Wei Wuyin wouldn't think of this problem when giving them this product.
And she was correct.
Wu Yu was currently watching her. And he also realized why Wei Wuyin was so serious when he told him to watch over them all. This development was too insane! But will he be able to resist the possible fallout?
But then he thought that most would definitely seek out how this pill was made, and likely wouldn't harm those who have already taken the pill. The fear of a Mortal Sovereign Alchemist or that imaginary background might be enough. He was likely just back-up.
Moreover, the Golden Life Pavilion's intentions were quite certain at this point. They wanted to have a firm connection with Wei Wuyin or the force behind him. They definitely wouldn't allow any ounce of harm to them, and if I did, they would be swift in retaliation. Did he calculate this too?
This man wasn't even here, yet the world was moving along his will. That was absolutely terrifying. He started to grow fearful that one of the alchemical products he took could strip him of everything…
Na Xinyi released her Worldly Domain! It extended until it reached fifty meters in diameter, then the distinct World Pressure was emitted.
The two were enveloped within it, but this World Pressure was insignificant to them.
"What?!" Jun Baiyin was terrified! Not because of the Worldly Domain's strength, but its degree of influence!
"How is this impossible?" Ma Sujiang had a heavy frown, her smile fading.
Na Xinyi was confused, and her heart was seized by various emotions.
A False Worldly Domain, those of the False Realmlord level, had the ability to exude World Pressure. This pressure was two-fold in purpose, and one of those functions was the aspect control, well more 'convert'. The World Pressure can convert ambient mana, energies, and astronomical forces into one's own power. It acted in a similar yet different manner as Intent. It didn't infuse, but grasped control over.
It was far more forceful.
But False Worldly Domains can only convert energies into their power, a single aspect, but this Worldly Domain wasn't just energies, but astronomical forces! This meant heat, gravity, fixed space, and other forces could be converted to their strength!
While it lacked the aspect of ambient mana, the concept of converting astronomical forces into one's own was the principle for establishing a World Realm, flat continental earths, and creating planets! This meant this Worldly Domain between false and real was capable of performing feats of astronomical level!
Ma Sujiang and Jun Baiyin glanced at each other. They had to learn more!
Jun Baiyin hurriedly asked, "How did you create this Worldly Domain?
Ma Sujiang corrected, "Domain Seed."
Jun Baiyin realized what she asked wrongly and nodded, looking towards Na Xinyi.
Na Xinyi didn't hesitate to answer, "I refined a pill called the Neo-Dawn Eclipse Pill. It helped me manifest my Domain Seed."
Jun Baiyin's eyes shined. She had so many follow-up questions!
But Ma Sujiang's eyes explosively widened! It was a product of the silver-eyed alchemist?!?! She was well aware of Wei Wuyin's moniker, the Ascendant Emperor of Neo-Dawn!
She abruptly vanished.
Wu Yu and her floated at the edge of the Sky Layer, their eyes locked onto each other.
Ma Sujiang spoke plainly, "Do you know the importance of this?"
Wu Yu nodded, yet was entirely indifferent on the surface. But in his heart, his heart was like a wardrum! This was truly a little too much.
"You should kill her," Ma Sujiang said.
Wu Yu glanced at the Dark Yin Palace, piercing into the room that housed the excited Jun Baiyin and Na Xinyi. He knew that Ma Sujiang was talking about Jun Baiyin, not Na Xinyi.
But he shook his head, Wei Wuyin would've given them orders if he wanted it to remain a secret. There was no need to slaughter for secrets. Furthermore, he wasn't aware of how many pills were out there and who had them. It would be stupid to slaughter everyone who found out, and that would certainly be noticed.
Ma Sujiang frowned, "He wants the pill to be known? Does he know how this will shake the very foundation of the world? Those in this world aren't that generous if they can monopolize such an advantage."
But Wu Yu smiled, unconcerned. "I think you should be worried about yourself."
Ma Sujiang's heart shook. "Why?"
"If I know my Young Lord, the Golden Life Pavilion is about to receive some instructions. Have fun shaking the foundation of the world. Do survive, and prove you're worthy for his partnership." Wu Yu smirked. With a faint step, he departed. He had already left his protective means on Na Xinyi earlier. Even if Ma Sujiang wanted to harm her, she would find it extremely difficult.
Ma Sujiang was stunned. Instructions?
Just at this moment, an old man entered the Third Branch's territory of the Endless Prosperity Domain, ruled by the Golden Life Pavilion, via a Void Gate. He had a weary expression, seemingly exhausted as he arrived.
"Ma Zheng, right?" With his loose grey robes, he trekked forward to his predetermined destination.
