Paragon of Sin

Chapter 303: G.S.T Decisive Heart


”Seed of Serenity. How vicious, haha. ” Wei Wuyin clicked his tongue. As someone who cultivated in the nine elements, with the Life Meadow Wood Essence as the source of his wood-attributed strength, how could he not know of this art? The Seed of Serenity was a Meadow-type Wood Art that was like an infectious parasite. It takes the body ’s lifeforce as fuel, and when planted, it can seep into one ’s heart and endlessly grow.

It ’ll continue to grow until it converts all the lifeforce within the body into wood force. In the end, the body ’s flesh and blood would become fertilizer and water for the seed, and the entire body would slowly and surely be turned into a forest. It was very vicious, almost evil.

Furthermore, when it grew to full maturity, the user of this art could absorb the generated wood essence to replenish their strength. It was extremely, extremely vicious. 

If you had no prior knowledge of the art or understanding of lifeforce extraction methods, you would be helpless against it. No matter how talented you are, if you didn ’t know what you were up against and how to fight it, you were simply a helpless chicken with its neck stretched out at the ready for the blade.

Jiang Yuwei was the perfect example of this.

While the cultivators here were talented, they weren ’t all-knowing or all-capable. They were still young. 

Of course, every art had its flaws. The Seed of Serenity was too slow. While it might be extremely painful, might weaken your opponent, it simply took too long to achieve its goal. Furthermore, you had to come into direct contact with the enemy ’s body to implant the seed. This made it exceptionally disadvantageous to all users.

Su Mei couldn ’t help but say a few words of praise, ”To implant the seed into him, she had to strike before his astral ward was fully conjured. Otherwise, breaking through his Grand Earth Astral Ward and other defenses would be impossible for a Wood Cultivator like her unless she possessed absolute strength. If she hesitated for even a split second, or was unable to understand her own weakness, she would ’ve surely been at a disadvantage.

”Moreover, she capitalized on a brief moment of carelessness from Jiang Yuwei perfectly, throwing him off-guard before striking at the earliest moment. She has potential. ”

Wei Wuyin nodded in agreement. Wood cultivators didn ’t have the strongest offensive or defensive abilities amongst the nine elements, but Earth cultivators were renowned for their defensive strength. Amongst the nine elements, it was in the top three. Its malleable nature also strengthened its versatile defensive powers. 

If Qing Qiumu hadn ’t struck when she did, a fierce battle would ’ve likely started and that was a toss-up on a myriad of other factors. After all, they had the same cultivation level. A decisive heart was hard to forge, but once forged, an indomitable warrior could be born. Qing Qiumu clearly revealed her decisive heart today.

Now that Jiang Yuwei was in a passive position, defending against all tactics with his ward conjured, Qing Qiumu wouldn ’t be able to deal damage to him with an explosive attack. Hence why she waited. An Astral Ward, unless possessing permanence, consumed one ’s astral force. Since Jiang Yuwei was circulating his ward with his full strength to defend against any further attack, he was wasting even more of his astral force than usual.

Before long, five minutes passed. Jiang Yuwei ’s complexion became much worse, heavy sweat dripping from his forehead, armpit, and back. He tried to use every means to cease the pain emanating from his body to no avail. He didn ’t know where the issue was nor did he know how to solve it. Unfortunately, he was unable to listen to Su Mei ’s words while isolated within the battle platform.

Jiang Yuwei eyed Qing Qiumu who seemed to be patiently waiting, knowing that she intended to exhaust him. He felt great humiliation from this, and more than once did he want to ferociously pounce. But whenever he tried to divert astral force for an assault, Qing Qiumu ’s emerald wisps circulating around her finger sped up and the pain worsened to nearly unbearable levels. She was clearly controlling whatever was in his body.

His rage boiled his blood in an unfathomably blazing heat. 

”I… ” His words were spat with an extreme hate and fierce grievance, ”I surrender! ” When those humiliating words were uttered, the platform ’s walls dissipated and a faint white light gently brought him away. When the light entered his body, as if it knew his particular aliment, it seeped into his heart and dispersed the Seed of Serenity.

The Myriad Monarch Sect would obviously be dutiful in ensuring the safety of the participants, including their own disciples, with the utmost fairness before the world if one surrendered. The white light had healing properties and was managed by an expert at the Prime Imperial Sage-level, possessing the strength of a Fifth Stage Astral Core Realm cultivation.

To rid Jiang Yuwei ’s body of a Sky Ruler ’s Seed of Serenity was child ’s play.

Qing Qiumu breathed out a sigh of relief, revealing a dazzling smile of victory. Lowering her finger, she looked at the sky and noticed that Jiang Yuwei ’s information had been removed and only hers remained.

Qing Qiumu.

Myriad Monarch Participant.

Sky Ruler Cultivation.

Spirit Points: 307.

# of Continuous Victories: 1.

She had gained 100 points and a victory. But the trial or battles wasn ’t over yet. Her eyes hadn ’t lost their original shine as she waited for her next challenge with a steady heart. 

She knew the next fight wouldn ’t be as easy, so she was ready to unleash her everything.

A figure flickered from the outside onto the arena. When the person was revealed and in complete focus, it was revealed to be a young woman—a human. She was dressed in similar attire to Jiang Yuwei. Her information was revealed:

Li Xiao.

Elemental Heaven Participant.

Sky Ruler Cultivation.

Spirit Points: 83.

# of Continuous Victories: 0.

Another Elemental Heaven Pavilion disciple! Interestingly enough, her aura was very similar to Qing Qiumu!
