Chapter 454: You Again!
w.a.n.g Wei proceeded to absorb the [Secret Spirit] since he understood it well. He was in tune with his emotions and had a great understanding of the interaction and attraction that drove people–especially himself.
Because he understood these aspects of the souls, he could fuse the [Secret Spirit] with the Primordial Spirit. The Three Immortal Stage is the cultivation stage where a cultivator's comprehension is more important than their body.
Without understanding the different aspects of the Three Immortal Stages, it is impossible to combine them with the Primordial Spirit and enter a stage of completion.
After fusing with the [Secret Spirit], w.a.n.g Wei felt that some missing part of him had returned. He felt complete and fulfilled; at least, he was in the process.
Additionally, he discovered that he lighted up more than 50 billion new spirit particles by completing the Primordial Spirit. The power of his soul increased drastically.
w.a.n.g Wei was pleased with this discovery. When he first created the spirit particles, he was prepared to lit all of them for an extended period, even after entering the next realm.
However, once he learned about the Three Flower Crowns, he decided to light them all up before condensing the Spirit Flower. As such, he prepared to spend quite some time in the process.
After his breakthrough into the Three Immortal Stage, w.a.n.g Wei did not continue. He made a few consecutive breakthroughs, so he needed time to relax and digest.
So, he decided to leave his Sea of Consciousness and focus on something else. Unfortunately, he found himself sitting cross-legged with a small table in front of him and another eerie-looking person with the same face as him on the opposite.
"It's you again," he gestured.
"Of course, it's me," replied his Heart Demon. "As long as you're still in this cultivation stage, I can appear anytime."
w.a.n.g Wei squinted his eyes at this person that looked like a cheap evil version of himself; he was not in the mood.
"I know you wished you could use your domineering spirit and supreme strength to blow your Heart Demon away. Unfortunately, this is not how Heart Demon functions in this world.
"Without knowing yourself, your mind, and processing your emotions, I can never go away."
w.a.n.g Wei sighed aloud before taking a sip of the tea; it tasted like Longjue, his favorite tea.
'Granma usually brought me some when she called or visited. *Sigh*.'
"No illusion today?" gestured w.a.n.g Wei.
"I figured there was no point, so let's have our usual chat," replied the Heart Demon, who also took a sip of tea. "Despite how I may go about things, I have your best intention in mind."
'Why do these words sound like something an abuser would say to justify their actions?'
"I'm sure you're thinking of something rude right now, but forget it. Let's begin.
"I will not mention the new crimes like kidnapping that you added to your list. We have already established that you feel little to no remorse."
"Harsh. Why are you portraying me as a psychopath?"
The Heart Devil ignored him.
"I will also not mention the ordeal with grandma. You went through the stages of grievances and adequately processed the event. Albeit a bit dramatic, it was understandable considering what was at stake.
"However, now, let's talk about Yu Yong. Don't you think you are treating him a little unfairly? Isn't about that tie you forgave him?"
As soon as he uttered these words, countless runes appeared in the surrounding, and the Heart Devil knew they could seal him to delay his appearance.
"Don't do anything stupid. If you seal me now when I appear again, I will be a hundred times more powerful." he paused before taking another sip of tea.
"I know this is a touchy subject for you, but it still needs to be addressed."
The runes disappeared before words appeared in front of w.a.n.g Wei.
"Why do I need to forgive him?"
"To better heal, of course. Anger is not good for your health or spirit."
"There is nothing wrong with anger; it's as destructive as any emotions once not controlled properly," wrote w.a.n.g Wei. "And my anger is justified and well-controlled."
What about your family and grandfather? I'm sure he didn't want to put his family through this; he had no choice. So, the least you can do is remove your anger and forgive. It would be great for your healing process.

"There is no need for a correlation between anger and forgiveness. I can forgive him but still, be mad. Plus, it is my emotions, my state of mind.
"Just like that?"
"As I said, our love began with me taking a great leap of faith, and I will continue believing in that leap. And if one day she proved to me that I was wrong, then I'll accept the consequences–even if it meant death."
"Won't you have any regrets? Dying while knowing that the person you love most in the world betrays you must be painful."
"Maybe for others, but not for me. I made this choice, fully knowing the possible outcome. And if that day truly ever came, I will die with a smile on my face while remembering the happy memories between the two of us."
"Haha, what a strange person you are," said the Heart Devil with a calm smile instead of his usual sneer or cunning one.
"You practice a Dao that involves control, and yet, when it comes to your love life, you choose to rely on faith; you allow fate to determine who you spend the rest of your life with and let of your control.
"I never thought of that," wrote w.a.n.g Wei. "It seems that you truly know me better than me."
"Of course. Well, the tribulation ends, and you pa.s.s with flying colors. But we will meet again."
"I'd rather not."
"Unfortunately, that's not for you to determine."
The Heart Devil disappeared. w.a.n.g Wei sensed his mind and spirit became refreshed and his state of mind sublimated. He felt he had removed a veil from his eyes, allowing him to see the world clearer.
'Although Heart Devil can help cultivators with their state of mind, it is always unpleasant to talk to this guy. However, he did give me an idea.'
He planned to talk to Wu Hong about this conversation to better their relationship. He will tell her about all his doubts and insecurity. That way, they can grow closer as Dao Companions.
He returned to his cottage and took out the [Ancient Desolate Body Refining Scripture]. He planned to temper his Star Acupoints during this retreat.
Although the old beggar told him that he could not rely on strength to pa.s.s the trial, he also knew that he would never have a chance of surviving without it.
