1671 A Win-Win Situation.
Not planning to overstay his welcome, Felix gave her a head nod in gratitude and took off.
He might hate her guts and want her dead at the first opportunity, but it wouldn't stop him from showing the right attitude at the right moment.
"Shall we start?"
Felix said with a wide eager smile after manifesting all the unlocked sin symbols in front of him.
Now, he had all the tools, knowledge, and time to prepare for his next move, which would be nowhere as simple as the last time.
He understood that the unigins would be ready for him like they would be dealing with Lilith herself and none of them would leave him room to take advantage of.
Thus, his preparation had to be top-notch and Felix planned on spending the next century on it...Whether he was ready to make a move during the ceremony or not depended on his readiness and confidence in his strength.
"Let's start with you two."
Felix picked the indomitable will symbol and the hunger symbol, desiring to recreate the Veil of Pride technique.
In the meantime, at the eastern north side of the eternal kingdom, where the relentless tumult of Zeus's thunderstorm territory met the serene, crystalline expanse of Athena's domain,a crystalized table with two chairs was situated right on the border between those two mesmerizing territories.
Zeus's realm was a living tempest, a boundless expanse where lightning danced across dark, roiling clouds and thunder echoed like the drums of war.
It was a place of power, raw and untamed, where the air crackled with electricity and the rain fell like the tears of gods.
Meanwhile, Athena's territory was a stark contrast in every conceivable way. Here, the landscape was dominated by structures of pure, shimmering crystal that refracted the light into a kaleidoscope of colors.
These crystalline formations ranged from towering spires that pierced the sky to delicate filigrees that carpeted the ground, creating a domain of breathtaking beauty and calm, where knowledge and wisdom seemed to crystallize out of the very air.
The universe always found a way to bring back its balance and the three rulers understood this more than anyone else.
"The prophecy hasn't spoken of this, but it makes sense when we see the final transformation of that boy." The third ruler uttered, "Whether Asna's core gets captured by the unigins or the boy kills them all...It's a win-win either way."
Their discussion, while strategic, disclosed an inferential thread of opportunism.
They saw in Felix not just a rogue element or a potential threat, but a tool, albeit an uncontrollable one, that could inadvertently sculpt the celestial landscape to their advantage.
By allowing him to confront the unigins, they could eliminate rivals and consolidate their dominion over celestial energy, all while keeping their own hands clean.
As for worrying about Felix getting stronger in this manner and maybe even reaching their level? None of them entertained such a joke.
In their eyes, it didn't matter what Felix did or what kind of level he reached, the end was already decided...
Back to the present...
"Luckily, the celestial ceremony is a special event and even if they wanted to remain passive, they have to watch over our territories." Zeus smiled coldly as he gazed at the sky, "Oh, how I wish they break their word and let the paragon harvest celestial energy from our territories."
"Indeed, with the ceremony drawing near, our attention will be elsewhere. It presents an favorable moment for him, should he decide to act." Athena shook her head, "But, I doubt he will be stupid enough to go for it."
"He is too smart, too cunning, and too prudent to risk making a move so soon when he had all the time in the world." Athena assured with a certain tone, "Now that he has made the first move and showed us what he is capable of, he will comprehend that his next action needs to be absolutely perfect to achieve the same results."
"There is no way he will be able to reach such a state in less than a century. Even if he could and pulled it off, he would still not make a move."
"Indeed, I see where you are coming from." Zeus agreed at the end, "If I was in his position, I would spend at least a million years in preparation before showing my face again. Especially, when I know that the three rulers will remain passive."
"You get it." Athena acknowledged in approval as she took a small sip of her tea.
In her eyes, as long as the three rulers didn't decide to use underhanded methods like torturing Asna to get Felix into handing the core peacefully, he had nothing rushing him.
Unbeknownst to her, Felix was also a risk-taker and no one could really predict what was going in his mind...
