    Chapter 264: Then Master Will Dig Her Up To Accompany You; I Just Can’t Get Used To These So-Called Self-Righteous ‘Heroes’.

    Thinking of this, Gu Changge soon sat down in meditation and communicated with the system, intending to attempt the refinement using Destiny Points. Shortly after…

    Buzz!

    Atop his head, a black light began to emerge, as strands of shadowy illuminance flickered.

    One after another, Dao Runes intertwined, falling towards the centre of this dark matter.

    The Black Dao Bottle bobbled, floating and sinking, like a monstrous black hole that threatened to devour all in its vicinity. 

    Its current activeness had far surpassed anything it’d ever shown before.

    Gu Changge himself was surprised at its voracity. Not even the Human Ancestor’s Reincarnation Seal, a priceless Artifact, could illicit such a reaction.

    ’It seems that there is no need to waste my Destiny Points.’

    The white-robed youth sat cross-legged in the empty space, while a luminous jade-like light began to appear on his face, giving him a grand sense of majesty.

    Boom! 

    Boom! 

    Boom!

    Ancient drums seemed to beat against the rhythm of the world within the darkness.

    Sacrificial songs reverberating endlessly, accompanied by hellish screams of torment.

    Behind him, Demonic Energy surged, becoming an overwhelming storm, as the illusion of a peerless Demon Lord rose from his shadow, its cold and heartless eyes deterring the Heavens and all the Realms!

    Creak!

    It was at that moment that something within Gu Changge’s mind began to crumble…

    Sealed memories surfaced from the deepest depths.

    Of mountains and rivers. Of a horizon of clouds and rolling mist.

    Of the simple thatched hut that stood beneath a bright, glaring sun.

    Upon an azure rock, a little girl in red danced with a sword, her sleeves rolled up as the light of the blade shimmered in the heat like silver, splashing an eternal image into Heaven and Earth.

    And watching solemnly in front of the hut… was Gu Changge himself. 

    An indifferent youth with his hands behind his back, wearing a red coat, and hair blowing in the wind.

    Observing as everything in the world revolved rapidly because of the sword in that little girl’s hand.

    The dance soon ended.

    The little girl in red ran happily to him.

    “Master, today I met the disciples of Jiutian Peak. They robbed me of my things, and said that my talent is mediocre, saying that I would at most reach the True God Realm in this life.”

    “Yet they were all defeated by me with one sword move, hehe!”

    “Who asked you to defeat them?” Gu Changge looked calm, and his voice didn’t fluctuate much.

    The little girl in red froze, before lowering her head, “I was wrong, Master.”

    “The sword art I taught you is not for defeating enemies.” But his tone still didn’t change.

    Thus, the little girl in red went back down the mountain, returning in about two hours. However, the scene of her return was ghastly, for her tiny body was covered in blood and scars, while she proudly held up a collection of several heads, smiling all the way. 

    “Master, I’m back!”

    She seemed to be very happy in spite of her injuries.

    “Mn. Here, have your favourite roast chicken.” He gently patted her head, “Jiutian Peak, together with Jiutian Continent, will cease to exist from today onwards.”

    “No one can bully my apprentice.” The little girl nuzzled into his large palm.

    “Master, I also made a friend at the foot of the mountain this time.”

    “Oh? Male or female?”

    “A woman, but she’s not human.”

    “Then what is she?”

    “She is a small peach tree.”

    He smiled to himself, “Then I, your Master, shall dig her up so that she may accompany you”

    Following that, a slender and willowy peach tree joined the scenery at the top of the mountain.

    And then… nothing.

    Gu Changge fell into deep thought after viewing this memory.

    — — —

    In the blink of an eye, several days passed in the outside world.

    “The All-Devouring Qi and its creatures had decreased by a lot. Could it be that Gu Changge really has a way to stop this?”

    Wang Zijin stared at the Heavenly Abyss with surprise.

    The grey mist encompassing the rift had grown much thinner.

    What else could it have meant?

    But to perform such a feat would be unbearably taxing, even for the ancients…

    “Only the Human Ancestor should have a way of combatting this aura, hasn’t it been so since ancient times? To think that that fellow could do this…”

    “Gu Changge, could he be the reincarnation of the Human Ancestor?”

    Wang Zijin felt a little puzzled.

    She glanced at the Jiang Chuchu beside her, but she saw not a single abnormality on the latter’s face.

    Calm and composed, and aside from her chilling apathy, she saw nothing else.

    In the past few days, Jiang Chuchu’s injuries had almost finished healing.

    Apart from being rather worried at the beginning, she quickly noticed the All-Devouring Qi decrease quite noticeably. As such, Gu Changge shouldn’t be in any trouble.

    Moreover, by dealing with this menace, Gu Changge managed to avert disaster and save all living beings.

    If it weren’t for the fact that she knew he was the murderer of the real Human Ancestor…

    Maybe even she herself would have suspected Gu Changge to be the Ancestor’s reincarnation.

    It was at this moment when Jiang Chuchu suddenly remembered what Gu Changge had once said. “What the Human Ancestral Hall lacked right now wasn’t the Human Ancestor himself, but one that bore his identity.”

    The Human Ancestor was dead, no matter what, so if the Human Ancestral Hall wanted to stand firm against the test of time following this event… then they must find his ‘reincarnation’.

    Could it be that they really needed to find someone to act as the Human Ancestor?

    A fake?

    Jiang Chuchu had never even considered this matter before.

    She would be betraying the Human Ancestor, and subsequently, betray everything that the Human Ancestral Hall stood for.

    Alas, given the current circumstances, she couldn’t help but be tempted by such an enticing offer.

    “…Jiang Chuchu, tell me the truth, what really happened between you and Gu Changge?”

    Abruptly, without warning, Wang Zijin opened her mouth and asked about her most recent concern.

    Fortunately, she’d already regained her composure. She already knew that it was absolutely impossible for her to just come out and tell Wang Zijin everything.

    And besides, what would she even tell her? That Gu Changge was the real Demonic Arts Inheritor? 

    That the current Prince Ying was actually just some unlucky guy that ended up taking the blame?

    Then tell her that Gu Changge had actually imprisoned her for a long time? That the person who was carrying out her actions in the past was simply an imposter?

    Even if she told her, Wang Zijin would not believe her so readily.

    In fact, it would only cast more suspicion on her. If these events were true, then why hadn’t Gu Changge simply killed her?

    Thus, she only replied as she normally would, “Don’t worry about it. Just… stay away from Gu Changge. He’s not as nice as he presents himself to be.”

    “That’s it?”

    Upon hearing her response, Wang Zijin rolled her eyes, “It’s a pity that my best friend won’t even treat me to any of the juicy bits.”

    “Duh? Of course, he’s not a good person.”

    She felt that Jiang Chuchu had changed quite a bit from before.

    In the past, when she was asked about any man, she would always become disgusted, and the words ‘disdain’ and ‘annoyance’ would practically be written on her face in bright red ink.

    Quite unlike how she was acting now.

    “Gu Changge is really dangerous; you’d better not get too close to him…”

    Jiang Chuchu sighed softly. In her calm tone, there was a hidden meaning only she could understand.

    “It’s fine if you won’t talk about it. Originally, I had a pretty good impression of Gu Changge. Since you have an inexplicable relationship with him though, I’ll just forget it…”

    Wang Zijin replied with a forlorn sigh of her own.

    Hearing this, Jiang Chuchu froze up a little.

    What did she mean by having an inexplicable relationship with Gu Changge?

    Moreover, did Wang Zijin have a crush on Gu Changge?

    “There is no such thing.”

    Wang Zijin smirked, “Heh, sure-”

    Jiang Chuchu did not have the time to refute these weird claims, for it was at that moment when they felt something stirring from the once calm rift.

    Immediately after, Gu Changge’s figure walked out of the void.

    He didn’t look much different from when he first went in.

    Jiang Chuchu and Wang Zijin looked at each other for a bit, each with a different set of emotions in their eyes.

    “Are you alright, Brother Gu?”

    Jiang Chuchu wanted to ask first, but Wang Zijin swiftly beat her to the chase.

    So she could only glance slightly at Gu Changge, biting her lips as she lowered her head, swallowing back the words she wanted to say.

    “I’m fine.”

    “The matter of the All-Devouring Sky has been temporarily resolved. However, with my abilities, I can only do this much at most…”

    Gu Changge shook his head in a disappointed fashion, as he observed the two of them with a strange expression, not saying much after that.

    In truth, he had already refined the Origin of the All-Devouring Sky.

    In addition to being able to control this power, his Black Dao Bottle had also undergone a mysterious change, providing him with numerous benefits.

    Having said that, Gu Changge didn’t intend to draw any attention to himself, for fear of any… unwanted complications. Thus, he decided not to absorb all of the remaining All-Devouring Qi.

    After gaining more experience here, he’d be able to refine new sources of All-Devouring Qi far faster.

    “Brother Gu, I sometimes suspect that you are the reincarnation of the Human Ancestor. You’ve managed to do things that no one else can possibly do.”

    Wang Zijin said half-jokingly, a wide smile in her bright eyes.

    “What do you take the reincarnation of the Human Ancestor for? The identity of the Human Ancestor is unsuitable for a little cultivator like me, so it wouldn’t do to talk about such things.”

    “As for this, it’s just a fluke…”

    “I probably won’t have such good luck in the future.”

    Gu Changge replied as though he had nothing to hide.

    Then, he split his sleeves open to reveal his arms…

    Swoosh! 

    The area above his hands began to fill with wisps of grey mist, ingrained into the skin—including his bones and flesh—showing a terrifying state of extreme corrosion.

    A shocking sight!

    Of course, this self-inflicted injury had a purpose. But no one needed to know that.

    “This……”

    Seeing this, Wang Zijin’s complexion couldn’t help but change drastically. She was so frightened by the injury that her body jolted, “Brother Gu, have you been corroded by the All-Devouring Qi?!”

    “Let me see.”

    As she said that, not caring about the difference between men and women, nor the possibility of the All-Devouring Qi corroding her own flesh, she grabbed Gu Changge’s arm to check the severity of his injury.

    Jiang Chuchu also couldn’t help but reveal a bit of worry at this moment.

    Unfortunately, she could do nothing but stay out of it and watch like some outsider.

    These injuries Gu Changge faced were undoubtedly caused by her, causing her to feel a hint of guilt, perhaps even discomfort.

    Gu Changge didn’t even look at her once either, fitting given his previous criticisms of her.

    “Brother Gu’s injury must have been caused by some kind of creature, right? Ordinarily, their Qi wouldn’t be mixed with the Sacred’s Realm power over Laws…”

    After checking the injury, Wang Zijin asked with a frown.

    As she said that, in the palm of her hand, a bright immortal light emerged, imbued with incredible vitality.

    Fizz!

    As soon as this celestial radiance came into contact with his skin, a distinct chirping sound rang out, like water being poured directly onto boiling oil. 

    Gu Changge frowned involuntarily, but remained silent, as if trying to endure the pain.

    “This injury was due to my carelessness at the time. A creature of the Sacred Realm ambushed me from within, I didn’t expect it to be such a difficult fight…”

    As he spoke, his face grew paler, contrary to his calm expression.

    “Gu Changge…”

    Seeing him like this made Jiang Chuchu feel a little uncomfortable. She wanted to say something, but… as soon as he called his name, she didn’t know what else else to say.

    It seemed that she really hadn’t talked to Gu Changge properly before, outside of calling him names, and scolding him for being a despicable scum.

    1Samael: And she would be right.

    “Saintess Chuchu, what’s the matter?”

    Gu Changge glanced at her, speaking casually and without mentioning anything of what may have happened in their past together.

    She felt saddened by his cold tone, but masked it with her usual indifference.

    “Thank you for your previous rescue.”

    “Since you’re all right, I’ll be taking my leave first.”

    “I am indeed fine, so Saintess Chuchu needn’t worry. Shouldn’t your time instead be spent on caring for the safety of the common people in this world?”

    “If not, many more will suffer from the evil hands of the Forbidden Demonic Arts’ Inheritor.”

    Gu Changge’s tone was casual and carefree.

    Yet Jiang Chuchu’s face turned pale upon hearing his words.

    However, she said nothing in the end.

    The Saintess merely took another look at Wang Zijin, before turning into a divine rainbow, leaving a streak of light in her wake.

    “Brother Gu seems to be in conflict with Chuchu?”

    Seeing this odd exchange, Wang Zijin couldn’t help but become curious.

    “No. It’s nothing. Just that I can’t get used to her majestic and upright personality. She’s the type who seems to value the world more than anything else…”

    Gu Changge shook his head and shrugged.

    Before long, the two of them followed suit and left this place.

    From within the All-Devouring Sky’s Battlefield, the sudden decrease in Qi, and the thinning numbers of hostile creatures attracted the attention of many cultivators. 

    Unfortunately, their quest to investigate would soon be put to a halt. For everyone present, not a single one of them would dare to explore that place, for it would mean certain death. Thus, they were forced to ignore it for now. 

    Additionally, neither Wang Zijin nor Jiang Chuchu were the type to make matters public.

    And Gu Changge was even more eager to keep this kind of thing low-key. At present, the All-Devouring Sky’s Battlefield had not yet entered the eyes of those old monsters lurking in the dark.

    However, if they realized that he possessed a method to deal with the All-Devouring Qi…

    They would definitely come after him.

    Furthermore, as this matter concerned the well-being of the entire Upper Realm, even if he was the Young Master of the Immortal Gu Family, he would still be captured and forced to go deep into that All-Devouring Sky alongside them.

    Gu Changge naturally didn’t want to encounter such a thing. It was too troublesome.

    Upon parting ways with Wang Zijin, he soon returned to his temporary residence in Profound Heaven.

    On the road back, Gu Changge tried looking into this strange Qi. He compared it and dissected it inside his inner universe, finding that this force had a very considerable impact on space. Obviously, it was particularly effective at destroying and devouring things.

    And they worked especially well against formation runes, which corroded and broke like paper paste.

    And although he’d only refined a single piece of the All-Devouring Sky’s Origin right now…

    The power of this piece was already enough to cover a territory with a radius of 100,000 Li!

    In other words, Gu Changge could now control a radius of 100,000 Li of the All-Devouring Sky.

    Such a distance would be enough to circle a small star!

    During this period of time, Gu Changge also received news from Yan Ji regarding the matter he asked her to inquire about, with an interesting result.

    “Sure enough, she’s not in the Primordial Divine Sect.”

    Gu Changge muttered this piece of information to himself, somewhat understandingly.

    He had ordered Yan Ji to ask the Primordial Divine Sect about Su Qingge’s whereabouts.

    Both of them came from the lower realm, so Yan Ji was no stranger to her.

    But the result… she apparently left the sect quite some time ago.

    And as for Su Qingge’s ‘one body two souls’ situation…

    Gu Changge had always been paying close attention to this matter, since Su Qingge was the only one whose Luck Points were not fixed.

    According to her own statement, every once in a while, memories regarding the Upper Realm would mysteriously appear inside her mind in the form of dreams.

    Gu Changge noticed that every time these memories reappeared, Su Qingge’s luck points would rise.

    Hence, there must be a great connection between the two. He had also personally investigated the matter of Su Qingge’s other soul, and even asked his mother to investigate it…

    Yet none of them managed to find any relevant information.

    Unable to ascertain the nature of this soul, Gu Changge ended up asking Su Qingge to stay inside the sect to cultivate in seclusion, with his mother teaching her the Dao. 

    It’s just a guess. But if I want to confirm it, I’ll first have to find her tracks…’

    The white-robed scholar then gave commands to have his subordinates record and detail the recent movements within Profound Heaven’s major battlefields.

    If Su Qingge truly was the mysterious Demonic Arts Inheritor like the Ye siblings said, then she would inevitably come to Profound Heaven during this period of unrest.

    As the True Immortal Academy was the best breeding ground for the Demonic Arts Inheritor.

    And with Profound Heaven in chaos, and with Prince Ying carrying the blame…

    For her, this would be the perfect time to fish in troubled waters.

    And considering Gu Changge’s current information web, finding someone who had not deliberately hidden themselves from the world was simply child’s play.

    ‘If it’s really Su Qingge, then she has to thank me. At least so far, the only people who know that there is a second Demonic Arts Inheritor are Ye Langtian and Ye Liuli.’

    ‘Hm. I wonder if she’d desire my origin?’

    2Samael: 0.5 chapter material detected “Write that down. WRITE THAT DOWN!”

    Thinking of this, Gu Changge’s expression showed a bit more interest.

    When she was in the lower realm, Su Qingge showed intelligence and reason beyond what was ordinary. At first, she surrendered to him out of fear.

    But after such a long time, perhaps she changed her mind, who knows?

    It’s not that Gu Changge didn’t believe in Su Qingge, it’s just that he didn’t believe in her other soul.

    If there was no other soul, he did not believe that Su Qingge could inherit the Demonic Arts.

    Several days later, he received news…

    Su Qingge has arrived at Profound Heaven.
