Paragon of Sin

Afterword & Alternative Event

him, these words came from his belief in their future.

San Songli ’s frown lessened, but she was still a little curious.

Wei Wuyin ’s smile grew larger. ”So, I decided the best course of action is to find the most comfortable place for you, a place where you can truly feel at home and relax in an environment to your utmost liking and we can just…talk. ”

San Songli was taken aback. ”Talk? ” She asked.

Wei Wuyin nodded, adding: ”And eat, of course. ”

”Eat… ” San Songli truly felt that Wei Wuyin was incomprehensible. ”Then why bring me to the environment I ’d hate the most? ”

”Well. In truth, I scoured for a year to find a suitable place, and this planet, Glacieon, was the most suitable. ” Wei Wuyin answered.

”…what? ” She had absolutely no idea what Wei Wuyin was saying. How could a planet covered in year-long frost aura of absolute zero, a place of absolute death, also be the most comfortable place in the Tri-Vision Starfield?

”Haha, well. ” Wei Wuyin stepped forward and looked down towards the icy planet. ”I spent the next two years devising a unique astral art. Have you heard of ’Terraforming ’? ” 

San Songli nodded, ”It ’s changing the atmospheric and astronomical state of a celestial body. ” Terraforming was an astonishing possibility that astral cultivators could achieve when they developed their Star Core. The Four Ways Continent was terraformed from its base state of land to what it was via various essences and energy infusions over a period of time.

However, it required a very long period of time and dedication to even hope to achieve it, as a planet was far too vast and intricate to do so quickly. Only self-created continental flat earths were easier to change in this regard, taking centuries instead of millineas. 

Wei Wuyin reached his hand out and quietly said, ”Do you trust me? ”

San Songli paused, her eyes tracing Wei Wuyin ’s body until she focused on his outstretched palm that seemed to invite her in. As a cultivator, she inherently grew a natural paranoia and vigilance towards others, and this type of state of mind had kept her alive and allowed her to reach her current heights. 

Despite that, her mind was telling her that Wei Wuyin was trustworthy. She only hesitated a little before she steeled her heart. Regardless, to her, Wei Wuyin was a man that shouldn ’t be measured using common sense and his intent and desires were unfathomable, so she may as well accept it. After all, she was already here. If she didn ’t possess a little bit of trust in him, why be here?

She reached out and lightly grasped his palm in her jade-like hands. Wei Wuyin ’s smile grew ever more brilliant. ”Let ’s go! ” 

He clenched a little harder on the palm and descended towards Glaceon ’s outer atmosphere. The icy aura and frosty mist lingered, yet Wei Wuyin ignored it all. San Songli unconsciously circulated her cultivation base, causing her body to emit a blazing heat, yet it did little before the icy aura. 

As they entered the atmosphere, she felt her entire body start to stiffen from the pervasion of the planet ’s aura. However, as she saw the surface of the planet, her eyes couldn ’t help but widen.

It was…

It was…beautiful.

The surface was like a field of icy diamonds for rocks, cliffs, for land! The entire surface was as if it was composed of crystals and lingering within these crystals were the manifestation of an aurora borealis that radiated all sorts of delicate and astonishing colors. San Songli had lived for two thousand years and had yet to ever see such a sight.

The way the light reflected on the surface of each crystal made the surroundings become a cascade of colors that shimmered. She had forgotten the cold as her hand reached out and touched the various rays of light. Her flawless palm meeting those dazzlingly gorgeous lights created a picture-esque scene of an immortal fairy touching divinity.

Wei Wuyin had his mind focused elsewhere, but when a ray touched his face, he subconsciously turned his gaze around…

Thump!

His heart thumped with so much power that it stopped for but a breath.

The sight of San Songli carelessly inspecting the lights and how they refracted from the icy diamond like mountains and surface to land on her body created a perfect picture. One he would never forget.

He had nearly forgotten himself, but the icy chill once more sobered his mind. Laughing a little to himself, he turned towards the approaching diamond surface and pressed his palm forward.

Astral Art: Utmost Elemental Shift.

While true terraforming was nearly impossible, he had devised an idea of using his Heart of Elements Intent to initiate a shift. While he couldn ’t impose this will on the entire planet, an area of a few dozen kilometers was definitely a possibility. Therefore, he selected an icy mountain that stood high and proud and surged his astral energy within.

A magnificent change occurred. The icy mountain didn ’t shatter when it came into contact with the astral energy infused with intent, nor did the lights dissipate. Instead, a flame seemed to be birthed from within the mountain that didn ’t melt. This flame was icy-blue but it strangely emitted a heat that seemed to interact and co-exist with the icy-aura. In fact, it fed off and fueled itself on this icy aura.

San Songli ’s distracted eyes were drawn to the icy-blue flame and the diamond mountain. She was startled when she realized the temperature of the surroundings were increasing unceasingly. 

”This… ” the icy-aura that lingered on her body was drawn to the mountain containing this gorgeous flame.

In a flash, they landed on a flat portion of the mountain. It seemed to have been perfectly carved and the location was the perfect place to view the various lights emanating from the surroundings, and yet it wasn ’t too blinding. A perfect location to observe and rest.

”I don ’t have the ability to change the entire world yet, but I can at least make this place… ” he didn ’t finish as he smiled. He could already see that icy-blue flame emissions of heat enter both of their bodies, providing an eerily comfortable feeling within.

”How is this possible? ” San Songli asked in bewilderment. When Wei Wuyin said he had found the place most comfortable for her, she felt he was lying, but the newly emitted heat and its respective aura was truly the best she had ever felt. She felt at home. In fact, if she let herself completely indulge in this feeling, she may even be moaning.

It was as if every fiber of her skin, hair, muscle, and nerves were being given the most delicate massage.

Wei Wuyin rubbed his nose when he thought about how he should answer. This wasn ’t only because of his intent, but about a thousand astral formations and arrays constructed from the gentlest fire materials in the entire starfield. He had to pay a mountain sum to procure so much, had to come down here personally as no one outside of himself could even survive a few moments in this death trap, and spent months setting everything up.

Not only that, it ’ll only last for about a day at most. The energy and materials were being rapidly consumed. If he could, he would terraform the entire planet, but this planet exuded the Absolute Zero Intent over every inch of its surface. It would take centuries to do that.

Not only that, it wouldn ’t be as comfortable as right now. The best he could do due to its extreme nature of ice was transform Absolute Zero to Absolute Hot, thereby changing this planet into the fourth star of this starfield. That would be literal hell.

Even then, it wouldn ’t be sustainable for long, becoming a pseudo-star until the planet ’s star core inevitably burnt out.

Once more thinking of the price that could buy another Myriad Monarch Sect, he felt like coughing blood a little, even if he was obscenely wealthy.

”How about we keep that as a mystery for now? ” Awkwardly, he chuckled.

San Songli was a talented cultivator in her own right with immense experience. She could feel that the astral art earlier wasn ’t the core reason for change but the trigger. There were a lot of arrays and formations set-up that activated and she felt an immense amount of fire energy from within the mountain itself.

She gazed suspiciously at Wei Wuyin for a moment, but witnessing his expression, she decided to not press.

Wei Wuyin changed the subject as he waved his hand forward and a table for two appeared in a blink. It was already set with plates and various utensils. He had several of the highest renown chefs in the entire starfield cook and finish the meals seconds before he arrived on Planet Everlore. All of which were San Songli ’s favorite meals and desserts. Of course, he had to do some dark bribing to get this information discreetly.

It was true what they say: Money can buy everything. If he had ill-intentions towards the San Clan, he was shocked how easy it was to obtain crucial information or bribe traitors. The clan was nearly rotten from top to bottom.

He had even obtained the finest wine that was aged nearly four thousand years, and it was San Songli ’s favorite type. This was a struggle to acquire and he even met with a few fakes, but with some luck and wealth, even that was obtained.

To be honest, the wine itself cost a literal fortune. The seller could buy a planet or two.

Even Wei Wuyin felt his heart clench at this very thought. Despite that, it was all worth it.

Because when they sat, when he revealed the meals and the wine in this unique and beautiful environment, he got to see something he would never forget.

A smile.

A genuine smile.

It was all worth it.
