I Am the Fated Villain – Chapter 123

Chapter 123: This Gu Has Always Been Righteous And Benevolent; Is Caring About The World A Sin?

Ye Langtian was stunned at Gu Changge’s remarks, but when he saw the smile on Gu Changge’s face, he understood his intent a bit better.

Thus, he gave Gu Changge face and did not cause any further trouble with Chi Ling.

“Many thanks, Brother Gu, for defusing the situation.”

Not expecting Gu Changge to step forward and resolve the situation at such a moment, Chi Ling gave him a grateful look, and Gu Changge smiled back.

For a moment, Chi Ling was at a loss for words.

On the other hand, her impression of Gu Changge had improved.

If Gu Changge hadn’t stepped forward, she would have been questioned by the rest of the Young Supremes.

After all, Ye Ling’s involvement in the matter was so significant that she could not have changed anything on her own.

‘Even if I don’t believe that Ye Ling is the Inheritor of Forbidden Demonic Arts, I am simply too weak to do anything about it.’

‘Unless I could find out the true Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts right at this moment.’

‘But that would be too difficult.’

Chi Ling felt helpless and understood this as she let out a sigh.

Seeing Gu Changge stand up for her, the surrounding Young Supremes said nothing more.

However, the more they thought about it, the more they realised that the situation was clouded in suspicion, and Ye Ling was the most likely suspect.

Bai Lie, the Young Master of the White Tiger Clan, had always been the righteous brother of Ye Ling.

He was killed on the same night Bai Lie and Ye Ling had a conflict, as confirmed by the Holy Maiden of the Celestial Fox Family, Yin Mei.

Later, Ye Ling disappeared after Bai Lie was killed.

The timing was far too coincidental.

If Ye Ling didn’t do it, why didn’t he dare to show up and prove his innocence?

This can only mean that there is something that Ye Ling wants to hide.

The Young Supremes were not stupid, they were able to figure out all of this as soon as they thought about it.

However, they did not say anything further, because they felt that Gu Changge seemed to be defending Ye Ling, intentionally or not.

There was no reason to offend Gu Changge over such trivial matters in the territory of the Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace.

Perhaps Gu Changge was doing it due to his status as the host and to prevent the heir of the Vermillion Bird Clan, Chi Ling, from being too humiliated.

That was what they all assumed.

“Brother Gu, I’ll take my leave first.”

At the same time, Ye Langtian got up, preparing to leave first with his attendants and Ye Liuli.

The fact that he was able to attend the ceremony today was the most meaningful thing he could’ve done for Gu Changge.

For the past few days, he had been under a lot of pressure.

After all, Ye Ling was still a member of a branch family of the main Immortal Ye Family, and with such a major incident, not to mention the White Tiger Clan, the other Daoist clans and powers were all very concerned.

If he didn’t take care of it, the Ye Family would not be able to withstand the wrath of the other Daoist forces. Although he was the heir of an Immortal Family with a rich heritage, it was not possible to cover the sky with one hand.

There were too many things that he needed to deal with these days.

For a while, Ye Langtian was also anxious, but he showed Ye Ling no sympathy at all.

The rest of the Young Supremes also got up to say their goodbyes, as the matter of the Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace opening up the Immortal Road was of more significance to them.

Even if they met Ye Ling in the near future, they wouldn’t fear him in the slightest

They all thought that Bai Lie was killed because he was close to Ye Ling and was caught off guard, resulting in him losing his life.

Watching the crowd leave, Gu Changge smiled lightly and said, “Please take care, everyone.”

At any rate, the black pot had already been put on Ye Ling’s head. And with today’s remarks, even if Ye Ling’s acquaintances wanted to defend him, it would be very difficult.

After all, the small group of people in front of him were the heirs or descendants of various powerhouses, and their words and actions could influence the actions of the forces behind them to a large extent.

This put Gu Changge’s mind at ease.

For a short while, there will be no problem with his identity as the true Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts, and this is the perfect time for him to grow stronger.

While the cultivation base of the Heavenly God world was incredibly powerful among his peers, there was still numerous existence in the God King, Sacred, and Great Sacred Realm that existed above the Heavenly God realm.

‘The Immortal Road Realm has many ancient corpses, perhaps there are even some Immortal corpses from the Ancient Immortal Era…’

‘In the event that I encounter one, it will be a great opportunity for me. And there is also Fairy Origin that will be born soon, for which I’ve been planning for a long time.’

Various thoughts flashed across Gu Changge’s mind.

And he guessed that Ye Ling hadn’t left the Heavenly Dao Ancient City. For a Favoured Son of Heaven, there were countless ways for him to hide his identity. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be able to do what he has been doing until now: pretending to be a pig to eat a tiger.

There were definitely many ways for Ye Ling to conceal his aura and change his appearance.

When the time comes, Ye Ling would definitely find a way to blend into the crowd and enter the Immortal Road.

For such a situation, Gu Changge has devised various countermeasures. Otherwise, if left alone, Ye Ling would definitely cause a disaster.

‘If Ye Ling is not present, who’ll be my treasure hunting rat.’

At that moment, Gu Changge’s thoughts were suddenly interrupted by a calm and clear voice from the side.

“It is my first time coming to these lands. Will Brother Changge accompany me for a walk? The Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace is so vast and mysterious, with countless divine islands and mountains, it’s truly mesmerising”.

Chi Ling opened her mouth and spoke. Her delicate, snow-white face looked somewhat expectant, and her previous cold and arrogant expression were greatly reduced.

Despite her petite appearance, she was around the same age as Gu Changge.

Her delicate mind, in particular, is much more refined compared to others of the younger generation.

It is not that she has any thoughts about Gu Changge that she wanted to talk to him.

Rather, she only wanted to speak with him to see if she could get any help from him.

After all, from what she had heard earlier, Gu Changge also suspected that Ye Ling was not the true Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts.

This made Chi Ling feel that she had found a companion.

“If this is what the Maiden Chi Ling wants, I am naturally happy to do so.”

Gu Changge gave Chi Ling a slight smile and said, but in his heart, he praised her for being very amusing.

This girl had already taken the initiative to approach him, saving him the trouble of having to go through the extra effort.

“Then I will trouble you, Daoist Brother Changge”.

At this moment came a smile from Chi Ling as she left the place with Gu Changge.

On the way, the two of them talked.

As she walked beside Gu Changge, she looked more like a younger sister than Gu Xian’er.

This scene fell on the eyes of Gu Xian’er who had been secretly staring at Gu Changge from afar, making her feel very uneasy.

On her cold and lonely face, she displayed a troubled look before turning into a divine rainbow heading back to the mountain top where she was cultivating.

Next, she would work harder to break through the Conferred King realm, defeat Gu Changge in front of everyone, and make that bully of a man who had always treated her with contempt regret it!

The grudge between the two would not end so easily!

…….

“Hearing Daoist Changge says so today, could it be that you have some knowledge about the Forbidden Demonic Arts Inheritance?”

On the way, Chi Ling couldn’t help but ask with some curiosity and doubt.

Back in the Secret Realm, Ye Ling had helped her, and the two of them had fought side by side to obtain the Fruit of Creation.

Thus, she did not want to leave Ye Ling in such a situation and wanted to do her best to help him clear his name from the suspicion of having learned the Forbidden Demonic Arts.

“I know a little bit about it, but I’ve only seen it through the remnants of a codex, and I know the terrible harm that can be caused by Forbidden Demonic Arts in the Upper Realm. After all, it’s a well-known fact that Inheritors of the Forbidden Demonic Arts will be hunted by everyone.”

Hearing this, Gu Changge smiled lightly, with a sense of playfulness.

“Is that so? Then that must mean Daoist Brother Changge is also a person of the Ancient ways.” Hearing this reply, Sister Chi Ling smiled.

After chatting with Gu Changge for a while, she felt that Gu Changge’s concern for matters of Forbidden Demonic Arts was larger than she had originally believed.

From Gu Changge’s words, she also felt that Gu Changge was full of doubts about the matter of Ye Ling being the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts.

Gu Changge raised many doubts that she had not thought of before, which convinced Chi Ling firmly.

Ye Ling must have been wronged.

If she had Gu Changge’s help, Ye Ling might be able to clear his name of suspicions.

When the time came, it would not be impossible to apprehend the true inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts.

After all, Gu Changge was now both the heir to the Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace and the Young Master of the Ancient Immortal Gu Family.

He was different from the others, and his words carried weight and credibility.

“I just don’t want to put the people of the world in danger, that’s all. In the end, inheriting the Forbidden Demonic Arts Legacy is too terrible, and once it’s out in the world, it will mean a bloodbath with unimaginable consequences.”

“In such a crisis, how can we cultivators sit back and do nothing?”

At that moment, Gu Changge’s face also showed a hint of concern, then he shook his head and said with a smile, “I hope I am worrying too much, after all, since ancient times, many great calamities and disasters have been eliminated by the various Daoist forces.”

“Although there are some grudges between us, I am still a little sad to see him in such a state.”

“Daoist Brother Changge is incredibly virtuous and righteous, I greatly admire you.”

Hearing Gu Changge’s words, Chi Ling was deeply shocked and could not help but sigh.

The look on her face was filled with admiration for Gu Changge.

How many of today’s younger generation were like Gu Changge, who cared about the cultivators of the world and the stability of the people?

“In fact, in the beginning, I also suspected that Ye Ling was the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts.”

“But when you think about it, none of these things have been confirmed with our own eyes. Ye Ling dared to challenge me, so he must be a confident individual. How could such a person be the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts?”

Having said this, Gu Changge continued, giving a detailed analysis of Ye Ling. However, the deep look in his eyes became more and more intriguing.

But Chi Ling didn’t notice any of this, as she continued to nod her head.

Although she felt that Gu Changge’s words were somewhat exaggerated, she did not doubt his true intentions.

When Gu Changge had stood up for her in front of all the Young Supremes and helped her out of her predicament, Chi Ling already had a favourable impression of him.

Now that Gu Changge had said so, it seemed normal to her.

Ye Ling was indeed a confident and brave person.

“To be honest, Ye Ling’s character is just as Daoist Brother Changge says. That’s why I don’t believe that he is the inheritor of Forbidden Demonic Arts.”

She said with a hint of emotion, “If I had Daoist Brother Change’s help, it wouldn’t be difficult for me to clear the suspicion of Ye Ling being the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts.”

“You might even be able to become friends by then.”

“Oh, is that so?” Gu Changge said, showing a look of intrigue.

“Daoist Brother Changge is such an honourable and benevolent individual that anyone can become friends with.”

Chi Ling pursed her mouth and said, and a rare smile appeared on her arrogant face.

Gu Changge didn’t say anything, but he couldn’t help but sneer in his heart.

He didn’t know if Ye Ling was a confident and headstrong individual.

But he knew that this Chi Ling had been trying every possible way to clear Ye Ling’s name.

According to what Chi Ling had said before about how she and Ye Ling had met, he sensed an incredibly common trope.

If it went on accordingly, Chi Ling would perhaps even become a part of Ye Ling’s harem in the future.

These were the kinds of tropes that Gu Changge was very familiar with.

It’s all about using the right words at the right time.

Naturally, Gu Changge enjoyed it. In fact, he could even do it many times better than the original route.

Didn’t Chi Ling seek his help, thinking that he was a reliable and stable companion who could work together with her to help clear Ye Ling’s name of being the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts?

Then Gu Changge should act accordingly.

‘Is it wrong to think that I am a benevolent, caring and generous person who is willing to help others?’
