Paragon of Sin

Chapter 555: Secondary Calamity Affecting Souls

yin who viewed it all with a firm and cold mindset, apathetic to it all with his regained sense of self, it still affected the four Astral Souls.

They had their own individuality and experienced all the things he did, but their reactions weren ’t exactly the same as his own. Ori, for example, angrily shook every time Long Chen burst through the door and then felt further enraged after being helpless and forced to experience weakness before death.

Be it King, Kratos, or Eden, they all had different feelings and emotions towards this event, yet they were all filled with one single emotion that tied them together: frustration. To them, it was as much their fault as Wei Wuyin ’s.

They could externalize. They could cultivate independently yet they hadn ’t. They stayed complacent and enjoyed their luxurious status and indulged in gorgeous beauties while neglecting their strength. Long Chen ’s triumph was more on them, less on the others. This was what each of them felt individually.

Kratos felt that it should ’ve sensed Long Chen coming. It was a Void Dragon! If anything, it should ’ve been able to escape as it pleased with its siblings and Wei Wuyin! What ’s the point of being Void if he was forced to watch those close to him die? What ’s the point in being a dragon?!

Eden cursed its negligence. At the very least, it should ’ve kept the others on a path of improvement, kept them focused, and concocted more alchemical products to ensure their safety. To it, their loss was all on its laziness! It had lived and experienced the most out of everyone, yet it still was so stupid!

King was the one who felt the worst out of the four. It was unable to even swing out a single time in this memory, being as useless as a third nipple. What ’s the point of being a saber if you were unable to slash? To cut? To kill?! Its Saber Intent was forged on the basis of Wei Wuyin ’s belief to emerge only when to protect or to kill. Yet he couldn ’t do either.

’…You all…are you… ’ The intensity of their emotions were growing by the second. Wei Wuyin was shaken by this. He hadn ’t expected that they would all suffer alongside him in this calamity, feeling the indignation, defeat, regret, frustration, and helplessness he felt.

’Stay focused! ’ Wei Wuyin mentally howled. It shook the four Astral Souls until their thoughts synchronized and united. It was only then that they realized the thoughts each of them had. This ability to connect their thoughts together was miraculous, enough for them to use each other as protective cushions and safety nets.

’It can affect my Astral Souls now? Or is this just an unexpected consequence of their sentience? ’ Wei Wuyin was thoroughly intrigued by this discovery, realizing that these Astral Souls of his had as much individuality and independent thoughts, emotions, and experiences as great as his own. 

Fortunately, they hadn ’t suffered any damage to their structure. It seemed the Calamity of Hell ’s cleansing effect that was generated by the feeling of regret didn ’t affect them. It was likely because they weren ’t its target. He noted this peculiarity down as he kept ’moving ’ forward.

”That was scary. Really scary. ” Ori meekly stated, a large portion of its energy had been drained by its own thoughts. 

Wei Wuyin agreed, comforting Ori before once more reliving the memory of Long Chen ’s revenge brought about by his weakness and neglect. With every experience, he felt himself become less and less impacted by this memory. 

’If I survive this, I ’ll never neglect my cultivation. I ’ll never allow anyone I offend to survive to harm me. If I strike the tree, even the roots will be pulled. ’ Wei Wuyin felt his willpower become reinforced by this.experience, like a form of relentless training. He felt his heart solidify towards the pursuit of power, a desire of unquenchable thirst to obtain strength above all else formed. With unrivaled power, such a situation would become impossible!

Those silver eyes of his exuded a colder light than before, and despite seeing nothing but darkness, it mercilessly swept the world with that terrifying radiance. 

”NO! ” 

”STOP! ”

”TCH! ”

”You can ’t! You can ’t! YOU CAN ’T! ” 

Four simultaneous voices exploded in his thoughts, shaking him so intensely that he felt the entire world of darkness quake! 

Wei Wuyin halted his steps, feeling his consciousness was tiny and near the edge of dissipation. It was only after those thunderous shouts that he discovered that his soul ’s outer shell that had recovered a large portion of itself had been severely degraded! It was as if he was hanging from a sharp cliff with his fingertips. Just a slight movement and he would be sent to the endless chasm below.

There was less than two percent of his outer shell left!!!
