Paragon of Sin

Chapter 328: Changing Ones Mind

”…What do you mean?! ” The one who had spoken was not Long Chen nor any of the women that had come to support him, but Qin Rui. Qin Rui understood that Wei Wuyin was present for a reason, but this reason was not to undermine the rules of the sect. As for seating on the throne, while agitated, she was aware that only those worthy could seat there. Since Wei Wuyin could, that meant he had the capabilities to do so.

”Heavenly King Wei! This is not the venue for you to act willfully. The Grand Prince ’s Three Orders is not something that you can decline nor interfere with! ” Zen, on the other hand, spoke clearly about her feelings towards the issue. Furthermore, none of these requests made specifically asked for his participation and could be accomplished by the sect. There was no reason to reject these reasonable requests.

Wei Wuyin glanced briefly at Zen, a light of impatience and annoyance flickered within his silver irises. Zen felt a faintly inexplicable chill course through her spine, causing her hunched back to straighten a little. She had already come to realize that her words and actions had antagonized Wei Wuyin. By how much? She wasn ’t certain. However, she was aware that this would affect their relationship. 

Wei Wuyin turned his gaze away and observed the dark and gloomy expression on Long Chen ’s face. Even Qing Qiumu was bewildered by his words. He sighed softly within his heart, ”In the eyes of others, your actions are commendable. It reveals your admirable feelings towards your ever-growing harem. I must say, they could be considered quite lucky. ” 

Long Chen, ”… ” 

Wei Wuyin had said words of praise, but it felt like a grating claw to a chalkboard in Long Chen ’s ears. Any form of praise felt mocking and filled with disdain, even contempt. This continuously grinded up his negative emotions and slowly boiled them within his heart.

Wei Wuyin continued, ”The Three Orders of the Grand Prince is supposed to be used on oneself, to better your advantages over Heavenly Kings. After all, while it might seem as if you ’re not in direct competition with others as an officially recognized successor, would it matter if another member of the sect was far, far beyond your strength? What is the meaning of the titles Grand Prince or Grand Monarch if you ’re not above all in your generation?

”To use it on three women who wouldn ’t be able to help you improve, no, I dare say, even slow down your progress with their needs and troubles, many would find it selfless and kind-hearted. But…when you think about it, every last one of their problems that led them to whatever fate they currently have is… ” Wei Wuyin paused as he faintly smiled, briefly glancing at Na Xinyi and Lin Ziyan. 

”…Your fault. ” He finished with a faint scoff. 

”…! ” Long Chen gritted his teeth until they nearly cracked due to the pressure. A murderous light flickered endlessly within his dark gaze. If looks could kill, Wei Wuyin would ’ve died a thousand times. Unfortunately for Long Chen, he didn ’t have such strength or abilities. 

”Wei Wuyin! ” Qing Qiumu spoke up. His words were too antagonizing, and it was clearly deliberate. While she normally didn ’t want to directly interfere in their conflicts, she couldn ’t simply stand by as this was said. After all, to her, Long Chen remained quiet and unresponsive because their positions were very, very different. 

Long Chen no longer had his miracle of a black ring to protect him while Wei Wuyin had Tuo Bihan, who could be considered the strongest known expert in the starfield. It was unfair to one-sidedly allow such abuse.

Wei Wuyin shook his head, ”It ’s merely the truth. Don ’t misunderstand me, I have no intentions of interfering with your requests. It is what the sect promises, and its a tradition that will likely continue after both of our deaths. In fact, I say its impossible not because of the requests being unreasonable, but that it is impossible for the sect to complete in any sort of satisfactory manner. ”

If Long Chen still had Wu Yu, he would know this. Wei Wuyin double-checked with Wu Yu regarding the creation of Hong Ru ’s body, and he realized the truth that had caused him to be curious.

”What do you mean? ” Qing Qiumu couldn ’t help but ask. Wasn ’t it within the limits of their power? What did he mean satisfactory?

”Firstly, your first request. It is utterly impossible for Tuo Bihan to effectively create a body for her. As a Purist, the forged body he created would not be compatible with a fire cultivator ’s soul. She would be unable to cultivate her entire life, and her soul-body-mind rejection rate would be nearly 99.9% certain to occur. You ’re dooming her to a life as a mortal, a very, very short lifespan, and the inability to live as a woman. In fact, she might become an invalid as a result. ” Wei Wuyin patiently explained as he regarded those below.

Wu Yu was truthful when he said that a Realmlord had the ability to forge a fresh body for someone, but there were numerous preconditions for it to work. Furthermore, if it is for an Astral Soul cultivator, one whose soul had been permanently modified during the Astral Tribulations, they would have even more stringent requirements to create the perfect body. For example, the gender of the creator and receiver.

This was why the Ever-Rebirth Pill was so miraculous, taking the King of Everlore twenty years to devise and create off numerous theories and experimentation. But the difficulty in concocting it was monstrous, requiring a very skilled Mortal Sovereign Alchemist to concoct with any success.

Wu Yu had two methods to reconstruct his body. One: he intended for a cultivator who cultivated the same method as him to reach the Mystic Ascendant Realm and reconstruct his body. This was Long Chen ’s purpose, and his main objective in choosing a talented cultivator from a lowly and weak location like the Myriad Yore Continent. Even then he would have to recultivate all the way back.

Two: the Ever-Rebirth Pill.

The same reasons why Hong Ru wouldn ’t be a remotely decent rebirth were the same reasons why Wu Yu needed someone who matched his cultivation and practiced his cultivation method. 

”Is that true?! ” Xiao Bing couldn ’t help but cry out in disbelief to Tuo Bihan, the strongest authority present. Her normally wintry expression had been tainted by anxiety. She had come because Long Chen had said there was a way to reconstruct Hong Ru ’s body.

Even Long Chen was taken aback by Wei Wuyin ’s words. It was clear he was completely ignorant of this condition and consequences for an incompatible body. In a way, it made sense, and that caused his expression to darken considerably. 

Tuo Bihan didn ’t know how to immediately respond to Xiao Bing, but considering it was said by Wei Wuyin, he nodded towards Xiao Bing. This caused Xiao Bing to tear up, her expression was soon painted with helplessness and despair.

Even Qin Rui, Ji Changkong, and Zen couldn ’t say anything. A depressing gloom instantly filled the air.

Wu Yu hadn ’t filled Long Chen in with all the details because it would be too heartless to do so. In the Founding Monarch ’s opinion, after he reached the Realmlord level, he could seek out other alternatives. What mattered was reaching that level of power to have that option.

”Regarding your second request: The sect simply does not have the capabilities to restore someone crippled in all three essentials, mind, body, and spirit. In fact, it barely has the means to restore the body. ” Wei Wuyin coolly pointed out, causing Zen ’s expression to become unsightly. Then, she recalled Lin Ziyan ’s condition and how vicious she was crippled, how thorough it was.

She remained absolutely silent, but her expression revealed her thoughts on the matter. Even if they could restore her body, her spirit and mind would be unable to be fully healed. That was the consequence of having your Natal Soul shattered. She would merely be a half-crippled at best. As for earthly treasures and heavenly waters? 

Many of these so-called earthly treasures and heavenly waters were extremely volatile. It was why alchemists were essential, to quell such volatility within them, mixing them with other forms of energies to produce miraculous and gentle products. While they had some healing waters, there was nothing for the mind.

Wei Wuyin continued, ”As for her Primal Yin? The only earthly treasure that could restore a woman ’s Primal Yin to completeness would be the Primal Yin Dark Pearl. And while that seems like hope, it is an Evil Treasure refined from numerous virgin women, nearly a hundred thousand. Furthermore, it ’s extremely volatile and unable to be refined directly without some serious complications, including possible death. But, it could be used as a material for a pill, the Absolute Yin-Creation Pill.

”Not only would this pill restore Lin Ziyan ’s damaged body, returning her to the status of a woman, but Na Xinyi ’s Primal Yin can be completely renewed. Moreover, her Three-Point Yin Physique can be improved upon, reaching four, five, or even a Nine-Point Yin Physique. ” 

With those words, he shut down all three requests.

Na Xinyi bit her lips nearly to the point blood was drawn. She couldn ’t help but ask a question that she knew would crush her hopes further, ”Can this pill be created? ” 

Everyone looked towards Wei Wuyin with bated breath, except Long Chen who was skeptical about Wei Wuyin ’s words. There were always other ways. And he would be correct. While Wei Wuyin didn ’t lie, there were indeed other ways. But all of these so-called ’other ways ’ required cultivators beyond the Astral Core Realm, Evil Cultivation Methods, or other Alchemical Products of a higher-grade or in far, far quantities than just one. 

The Absolute Yin-Creation Pill was the only way within the limits of mortals that could be achieved with the best result, and it was the only way that didn ’t go against the natural order in an overt fashion. 

Wei Wuyin faintly smiled after hearing Na Xinyi ’s question. ”Of course, all pills can be created. In fact, the Myriad Monarch Sect has two Primal Yin Dark Pearls in our vault at this very moment, acquired after Sky Nobles and Heavenly Kings crushed Evil Organizations. ”

The eyes of the young women present brightened. Two? There were two women here, so wasn ’t this perfect? As for the questionable nature of their origins, it mattered not. The treasure had already been created, shouldn ’t it be used for at least something good? Of course ’good ’ meant their own benefit.

”…All you need to do is find a Mortal Sovereign Alchemist that can concoct the ninth-grade Absolute Yin-Creation Pill and succeed. Furthermore, succeed before these two women ’s lifespan runs out in a few years or decades. Then, you ’re all set. ”

Everyone, ”… ”

”So, was I wrong when I said it was absolutely impossible? Because to me, it feels impossible to do those three requests any justice. At least, for the sect. ” Wei Wuyin leaned forward a little, an imposing aura emanated from his body, releasing a faint suffocating air. His eyes squinted, staring directly into Long Chen ’s dark eyes.

”But you knew that already, right? ”
