    Chapter 239: What An Amazing Harvest; Just Kill Me, Gu Changge

    Boom!

    The terrifying aura even surpassed the chaotic air.

    And space itself cracked.

    After all, this was the Great Dao Treasured Bottle, surging with divine light and condensing the Dao itself to suppress everything within Heaven and Earth.

    The Reincarnation Seal was unable to resist and was overwhelmed by the black light.

    “W-what……?!”

    Jiang Yang let out a scream, one that soon quietened down, and then disappeared into lifelessness.

    Bereft of its master, the Human Ancestor’s Reincarnation Seal also dimmed, before being completely enshrouded in black light, harmonizing with the immortal intent.

    The balance was broken.

    Of course, this consumption process would not be quick. It would take time to digest it fully.

    How could the accumulation of the Human Ancestor’s Dao Fruit over the millennia possibly be small and easy to devour? Even if it was the Black Dao Bottle, there had to be due process.

    At this time, Gu Changge finally heard the sound of the system prompt in his mind.

    He’d already activated a Fortune Plundering Card the moment he made his move.

    Since Jiang Yang had been beaten into this state, it would be a good time to plunder his pockets.

    [Ding! The host succeeded in plundering the fortune of the Reincarnated Favoured Son of Heaven, the Human Ancestor – Jiang Yang. Received 8,000 Fortune Value and 40,000 Destiny Points.]

    [Ding! The host killed the Reincarnated Favoured Son of Heaven, the Human Ancestor – Jiang Yang. The Kill-Drop Rule is triggered! Received a Heavenly Treasured Chest.]

    [Ding! ……]

    A series of system prompt sounds rang.

    But Gu Changge didn’t really care much about those Fortune Values and Destiny Points.

    What he cared the most about now was actually the contents of that Heavenly Treasure Chest the Human Ancestor dropped after his death.

    ‘Could it be a Dao fruit? Reincarnation Seal? Or something else entirely?’

    [Does the host wishes to open the Heavenly Dao Treasure Chest?]

    ‘Open.’

    Gu Changge didn’t hesitate at all.

    A familiar golden treasure chest appeared from thin air. However, this time the treasure chest had a purple halo surrounding it, making it an outlier compared to the previous ones.

    ‘Purple Luck…’ Gu Changge looked a little surprised.

    ‘It seemed that Human Ancestor’s luck had indeed reached a relatively high level in the system.’

    Buzz!

    Gu Changge stared in slight anticipation…

    As a layer of golden light erupted from the chest, followed by lines of mysterious sigils, primordial and flowing. Each symbol shimmered with an immortal light.

    And amidst that light were three objects, floating up and down, clad in a dense heavenly glow.

    [Ding! Congratulations to the host for obtaining the Reincarnation Seal*1, Purple Crown of Fortune*1, and Jieyin Dao Fruit*1!]

    ‘Hm? Reincarnation Seal?’

    Gu Changge’s eyes narrowed slightly.

    He remembered the Reincarnation Seal that he had condensed when he absorbed the Reincarnation Daoist platform left by the Ancient Deity of Reincarnation in the Ancient Immortal Continent.

    This kind of thing would become a second life in crucial situations.

    This meant he now possessed another life in addition to the previous one, unless he encountered a Demonic Arts Inheritor using the Black Dao Bottle like himself.

    But of course, he was merely speculating, as this kind of thing would be impossible in practice.

    And while his mind churned—

    Gu Changge felt as if a vague and mysterious mark had disappeared into his primordial spirit, sinking softly, before vanishing completely inside.

    “One more life, two Seals of Reincarnation, and one more trump card.”

    Gu Changge was quite satisfied.

    ‘As for the Purple Crown of Fortune… what could it be?’

    Afterwards, when Gu Changge checked its info, his expression became somewhat inexplicable.

    The Purple Crown of Fortune turned out to be a mysterious fortune item. Even if his personal luck was black, and uncontrolled by the Heavens of this world, being an unknown, unpredictable force…

    He was still able to use it.

    When wearing the Purple Crown of Fortune, he could have the luck of a person with the Purple-level Fortune.

    And as far as Gu Changge knew, Purple-level Fortune was the highest level of Fortune.

    Having said that, there were, of course, some requirements for using it, such as its cooldown time, its active time, and many other restrictions.

    Nevertheless, at a critical time, it may become an item with extraordinary effect.

    Gu Changge stored it away for now.

    Finally, he observed the Jieyin Dao Fruit.

    Judging just from the name, it was quite a strange item. The surface of the Dao Fruit, covered with a strange and simple rune, radiated a deep and boundless aura.

    “It seems that this is the Human Ancestor’s Talent – Jieyin Talent. It probably has something to do with the divine soul. Perhaps borrowing the power from the Dao Fruit is actually an extension of this talent…”

    Gu Changge swiftly analysed the function of this Jieyin Dao Fruit, musing his thoughts with a smile.

    Then he chose to enact fusion.

    This was a strange talent, belonging to the soul alone, and capable of emulating another’s Dao Fruit.

    And the emulation of one’s Dao Fruit would naturally include their actual cultivation base, primordial spirit, and so on, so forth. 

    Although copying someone’s talent was not guaranteed to succeed, and was a test of luck. . .

    However.

    What if one were to combine both the Purple Crown of Fortune and the Jieyin Dao Fruit? 

    It would truly become an exceptional trump card for him.

    “No wonder the Human Ancestor’s Primordial Spirit could hold so many Reincarnation Seals. Turns out that there is such a talent in the world.”

    Gu Changge felt an aura of harmony permeating his soul.

    In Ancient Deity of Reincarnation’s Inheritance, there were undoubtedly a few concealment methods, along with methods of imitation as well.

    Using these methods, on the day of the banquet at the Gu Family, he had thrown the black pot of the Forbidden Demonic Arts Inheritor onto the head of the Ying Emperor’s son, Ying Shuang.    

    Now that he possessed such a miraculous Dao Fruit…

    Things would get even simpler.

    Gu Changge would be able to toss the blame to someone else a thousand times easier.

    He felt that it was an item tailor-made for him.

    An amazing harvest.

    “Y-you killed the Human Ancestor…”

    At this time, Jiang Chuchu seemed to have just recovered after seeing Gu Changge stowing away the glowing Black Dao Bottle.

    Her voice trembled slightly.

    Paled face slick with cold sweat, filled with fear and disbelief.

    To witness the death of the Human Ancestor, yet unable to do anything but watch him die.

    This made her feel as if her world had collapsed. The intense emotion caused the majestic sea palace between her brows to shine brightly, on the verge of breaking out. 

    “Kill or be killed.”

    “Should I have waited for him to come and kill me?” Gu Changge glanced at her and spoke casually.

    Jiang Chuchu had a hard time processing the situation. Her tiny face seemed lost, and her pale arms trembled inside their sleeves, clenched into fists. Doubts and regret swamped her mind.

    If she had been braver and fought against Gu Changge just now, would the ending have changed?

    Would the Human Ancestor have still died if she wasn’t such a coward?

    However, Gu Changge seemed to know exactly what she was thinking, and replied gently, “No. You would only have died together with him if you tried.”

    Jiang Chuchu’s face drained of its remaining colour. She was not someone afraid of death, but those casual words Gu Changge spoke made her heart palpitate with an almost instinctual dread.

    Thankfully, Gu Changge quickly changed the subject, “Don’t worry. I won’t kill you.”

    “I promised, after all.”

    Having said that, he showed an intriguing smile again and continued,

    “Besides, you are my woman anyway, and I won’t do anything like killing my own people.”

    Jiang Chuchu was stunned when he heard the words. She didn’t expect Gu Changge to suddenly say such an insane sentence. Just because she was his woman, he would not kill her?

    For a while, she was silent, struggling with a complicated expression.

    To the outside world, there was currently a descendant of the Ancestral Hall wandering around the world. Since Gu Changge possessed the means to make even the Human Ancestor himself vanish in silence, wouldn’t it only be easier to make her disappear as well?

    Thus, she did not doubt the truth of his words, nor did she think it mattered any longer.

    “The Human Ancestor is dead…” She murmured, remembering the purpose of the Human Ancestral Hall since its existence, and lamenting the undeniable death of the Ancestor.

    Wasn’t it necessary for the Ancestral Hall to exist alongside the Human Ancestor?

    How would she explain this to the world at that time?

    The Human Ancestral Hall would no doubt fall from its high and mighty palace, an irreversible drop in prestige and fame, and would find it difficult to ever return to its former glory.

    Thinking of this, Jiang Chuchu’s expression became even more miserable.

    She just didn’t know what to do next.

    “Gu Changge, just kill me…”

    So she simply opened her mouth, wavering eyes fixed on Gu Changge, fully intending to beg for her death, as she no longer had any reason to continue her cultivation.

    This was because, from the moment of her birth, she had been taught that every descendant of the Human Ancestral Hall would have to shoulder the responsibilities of heralding the Human Ancestor’s arrival their entire life and that it was their sole purpose in life.

    But the Human Ancestor was now dead.

    This meant that the Human Ancestral Hall itself would soon fall apart. And if that happened…

    Where would she go then?

    “How pitiful, do you plan to live for the Ancestral Hall all your life?”

    “As I said, I won’t kill you.”

    “And I even have a way to help you.”

    Gu Changge’s smile curved like the slit eyes of a poisonous snake, as his fingers reached out to push the unkempt strands of Jiang Chuchu’s silken hair back behind her ear. 

    The scholarly man grinned like the devil.

    “Just trust me. Alright?”

    1Kshn: Yes, this chapter was shorter compared to others. Probably because the Human Ancestor arc ended.

    [Notes:

    • Jieyin Dao Fruit – Dao Fruit of Graft. Probably indicating how the Human Ancestor could borrow power from the Dao Fruit of his previous lives using this.]
