Paragon of Sin

Chapter 110: Aftermath

olaris Sect ’s weakened state; otherwise, it was entirely possible his life would ’ve been left behind that day.

Even a Godking wouldn ’t risk entering a grand Qi Array and Spiritual Formation in the control of a Godlord carelessly.

Wei Wuyin lightly replied, ”If the Astral Core Realm was so easily reached, would there be less than ten in the entire continent? ” Amongst the innumerable people, billions of cultivators on the continent, less than ten Astral Core Realm expert ’s exist. This only alluded to the exceptional difficulty in overcoming the Astral Core Realm.

Due to the Ninth Stage of the Qi Condensation Realm ’s, Qi Essence Phase, requirements to be reached, most cultivators spent the majority of their cultivation path in the Eighth Stage, trying to gather as much Qi Essence they possibly can before ascending.

In truth, becoming a Godking and assailing the Astral Core Realm was unfathomably easy, merely a choice to integrate one ’s Qi Essence with their Spirit of Qi, then to call forth the tribulation as long as they have the qualifications to do so. This meant gathering a sufficient amount of Qi Essence.

Unfortunately, each mote of Qi Essence requires an unfathomable amount of resources. Even Wei Wuyin only developed a few dozen despite refining seventh-grade pills. These pills were designed for Astral Core Realm cultivators! Yet, it was still difficult to form.

For a continent without a steady supply of seventh-grade products, reaching that level was difficult beyond belief.

Sheng Xinmei ’s eyes quivered. Indeed, how could it be so easy? There had never been a single Evil Cultivator known that had ascended, and for those who have ascended, they ’ve all had world-shaking backgrounds and talent.

Evil Cultivators were generally lacking in talent, seeking to make up for this deficiency by taking others ’ hard work and cultivation.

”Hahaha, ” she chuckled a little. Her mind went silly. Then, she abruptly stilled. Those eyes of hers swept the crater, the sky, and the devastated scenery that extended for miles. Right. While Phantom Rogue had failed, her comrades were all dead. Sheng Xinmei, her clan ’s Godlord, had been ruthlessly killed.

A painful sorrow emerged in her mind as she experienced flashes of memories of everyone of her fellow comrades. Their smiles, jokes, the stories they told, dreams and aspirations they had. It ’s likely their Hearts of Qi was taken and refined by Phantom Rogue, used to resist the Astral Tribulation.

As for them? Even if they were alive with half a breath, with their Heart of Qi destroyed, they no longer had a future in the cultivation world. Their mind and body would never be complete. Some might even experience total mental and bodily failure in the next few days. It would be horrific to watch.

”They ’re all dead. ” Wei Wuyin lowered his head and started to walk away. Those Imperial Guards were targeted by Phantom Rogue, and none of them was as lucky as her.

Sheng Xinmei ’s mouth opened slightly. Her eyes were shining with realization that, out of everyone who came today, she was the only one alive. A sense of guilt, unfathomably deep and vicious, welled in her heart.

Why her?

Wei Wuyin knew that this day wouldn ’t be just a tribulation for the Phantom Rogue, but this woman too. Perhaps, she wouldn ’t exit this crater today.

”It seems Dai Lin and the other nearby Common Growth Villagers are alive. It seems he only targeted those of a certain cultivation base, not caring about those fragile and too weak to offer any true benefit. Furthermore, most of them hadn ’t even formed their Heart of Qi yet… ” Wei Wuyin thought as he observed Dai Lin holding another woman tightly. She was smiling happily as they exited their shelter to observe the clear skies. To them, the apocalypse had just ended.

”Wait…wait! ” Heavy steps echoed behind Wei Wuyin. Sheng Xinmei caught up to him, her eyes seemed dim but not entirely empty. It wasn ’t hatred, anger, or sorrow that filled those eyes of hers. It was something else.

”Hm? ” Wei Wuyin was somewhat shocked by her.

Sheng Xinmei lowered her head and said softly, ”Can you…help me find their remains? Whatever remains they have… ”

She no longer had the visage of a dauntless woman with sharpness and force, but delicate and lost. He knew she didn ’t need him for this. After all, her spiritual sense was still present. But her call, her words, weren ’t for help to find her comrades, but to starve off this darkness birthing in her mind.

She didn ’t want to be alone.

”…Sure. ”
