I Am the Fated Villain – Chapter 120


Chapter 120: Demonic Art Inheritor Ye Ling; What a Vicious Plan…

It wasn’t going to be a peaceful night.

Unprecedented grief took hold of the White Tiger clan.

There are countless divine islands, ancient trees that stretch into the sky, a vast expanse, and an abundance of spiritual energy within the White Tiger clan’s territory.

Then came a roar so loud it could have shattered the stars in the sky.

A terrible blood-curdling roar of energy transformed into the terrifying figure of a white tiger, its bloody mouth resembling a lake of blood, appearing in the sky in an instant.

It let out a terrifying roar of rage that could not be matched!

“Who dares to kill my son!”

It was Bai Lie’s father, the Tiger Emperor of the White Tiger clan, who possessed an unfathomable cultivation base.

The Tiger Emperor, who was in seclusion to train, became enraged when his clan members informed him that Bai Lie’s soul lamp had gone out!

Bai Lie was the Tiger Emperor’s most beloved son, with the purest bloodline in tens of thousands of years, who was expected to outperform him in the future.

The Tiger Emperor had spent a lot of time and effort raising him.

When he left the clan not long ago, he had not expected to hear such terrible news.

This enraged the Tiger Emperor, setting his hair ablaze with fury.

“Investigate, go and investigate! Who has the audacity to kill my son? I’m going to rip his body and soul to shreds so he doesn’t enter the cycle of reincarnation and suffers for all eternity!”

Many members of the White Tiger clan were terrified as they stood beneath him, their faces pale, their teeth trembling, and their faces bloodless.

When the Tiger Emperor was enraged, a terrible disaster would be unavoidable.

This was clearly a bitter rivalry. Even when the younger generation competed, such a situation is rare.

Thus, they concluded that someone had provoked the White Tiger clan by killing Bai Lie with malicious intent.

If that person were to show their face, they would be unable to flee and would eventually be apprehended by the White Tiger clan.

“The Young Master’s soul lamp has gone out, how could this have happened?”

“What should we do now?” 

[Immeasurable Heaven, in the middle of the Ancient City.]

Bai Lie’s protector was paralyzed on the ground, his eyes dazed, repeating himself over and over, terrified.

He had been searching for Bai Lie all night, but had not found his whereabouts, and now he heard from his clan that the young master’s soul lamp had gone out.

To him, this was simply unbelievable.

The moment he heard the news, his skull was lifted off the ground and his body was chilled to the bone!

‘With the death of Young Master Bai Lie, the White Tiger clan would be outraged, causing great disaster.’

‘If I don’t protect myself well, I would die. No, death would be a luxury.’

‘If I don’t protect myself, life would be worse than death.’

The White Tiger clan was well known in the Upper Realm for its soul-trapping methods, and it had all sorts of ways to torture people to death.

He did not expect the ominous premonition he had last night to turn out to be true.

“The Young Master is dead! He died even though he possessed the Golden Talisman to save his life, what on earth should we do now?”

“It must be Ye Ling, it has to be Ye Ling! He must have killed the Young Master!”

At that moment, the only person he thought of was Ye Ling, as all the evidence pointed to Ye Ling as the perpetrator.

Bai Lie personally went to settle the score with Ye Ling. Yin Mei, the Holy Maiden of the Nine-Tailed Celestial Fox Family, could testify to it.

‘When the rest of the White Tiger Clan arrives, Miss Yin Mei could help me prove it!’

‘Only by catching Young Master Bai Lie’s murderer, I will have a chance to keep my life.’

Thinking of this, the middle-aged man hurriedly mobilised all his men and prepared to search through the Ancient Cities.

He didn’t believe that Ye Ling could’ve gotten very far.

Even if Ye Ling didn’t do it, he must find a scapegoat!


“Old Turtle, what’s going on? Why do I feel a little uneasy, like someone is plotting against me in the dark? Who was that man in white last night?”

“Why did he say that he and I would meet again? He gave me such a terrifying feeling at that time, no ordinary person would have that kind of aura.”

Inside a room in an inn in the Heavenly Dao Ancient City, Ye Ling, dressed in black, looked a little depressed and uncertain as he asked the Old Turtle inside the pendant.

This is where he is hiding now.

He was fleeing from the old man in black last night and successfully escaped into Heavenly Dao Ancient City. The old man in black had given up when he reached the outskirts of the city, probably because he was afraid of being exposed.

This made Ye Ling breathe a sigh of relief, and then he just found a place to stay first.

As far as he was concerned, there were still remnants of the inheritance  left for him by the Ancient Deity Reincarnation inside the Immortal Road in the Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace.

Therefore, Ye Ling did not intend to leave the Heavenly Dao Ancient City during this period of time.

“The man in white last night had a very strange aura and shouldn’t be messed with. And yet he came to you, how strange…”

“Do you think you have offended anyone recently? I suspect that the matter of your Inhertance has been noticed.” The Old Turtle inside the pendant said, asking Ye Ling to carefully recall the recent events.

At his words, Ye Ling shook his head and said, “Who have I offended recently? Clearly, it’s the others who have offended me. Apart from Yue Mingkong and Ye Langtian, who else is there?”

“That man in white last night, he can’t be related to them, can he?”

“Could it be that Gu Changge? But I haven’t seen him, and his face was concealed by the mist last night.”

He felt uncomfortable thinking about it.

The cold, indifferent, eyes that looked down on everything from last night came back to him. At that moment, he looked about as insignificant as a small ant in the palm of his hand.

This made Ye Ling, who had defeated so many powerful enemies along the way, feel very uncomfortable.

One day, he would trample that man from last night under his feet!

“If there’s time today, I should go and explain to big brother Bai Lie what happened yesterday. After all, we will still have to meet at the Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace…” Ye Ling continued.

When he was saying that, he suddenly frowned, “Why is it so noisy outside?”

When he heard some noises outside, Ye Ling suddenly froze, as if he had been struck by a bolt from the sky, he was dumbfounded.

In response, Ye Ling’s face and lips turned pale, trembling without the slightest hint of blood. He simply couldn’t believe it.

“How is this possible?”

“How could Bai Lie be dead?”

“I didn’t kill him, I don’t know anything, how is this possible…”

Ye Ling’s body was cold, nearly frozen in place, his scalp ready to burst.

He was just curious about what the cultivators outside were talking about.

When he listened to them, he was completely stunned.

He never thought that the cultivators outside would be talking about how the Young Master of the White Tiger Clan had been killed last night, and the killer was him, Ye Ling!

Now the White Tiger Clan’s Elite were looking for him everywhere.

How could he have had time to kill Bai Lie when he was being chased last night?

It was completely impossible!

“Is there a misunderstanding? Someone is framing me. I’m being framed, old turtle, and you know it. I was clearly being chased last night!”

The only thing that saved Ye Ling’s life was the old turtle in the pendant, and the only thing that could prove that he hadn’t killed Bai Lie was the old man in black who was chasing him last night!

Hearing this, the old turtle inside the pendant also fell into a long silence.

Only then did he say solemnly, “At this point, it is useless to talk about it, what can I do even if I know the truth? It is obvious that someone is trying to frame you.”

Upon hearing this, Ye Ling’s face paled.

“The White Tiger clan is out to get me, and I can’t be caught by them now. Even if it’s proven that I didn’t kill Bai Lie, the fact that I have the Reincarnation Ancient Heavenly Deity’s inheritance will still have to be revealed!”

“No matter how you look at it, the White Tiger clan won’t let me go!”

 At that moment, various thoughts flashed across Ye Ling’s mind.

In an instant, his face turned extremely pale. He felt as though he was dying!!

[PR/N: This man’s face keeps getting so pale he’s practically snow.]

Whether he killed Bai Lie or not, he could not reveal himself now, nor could he be captured by the White Tiger clan.

Right now, even jumping into the Yellow River was not an option for him.[1]

[1: Metaphor for being unable to get rid of something bad or suspicious.]

If Gu Changge was here and heard Ye Ling’s words, he would definitely praise his intellect for figuring it out so quickly.

But what could he do even if he had figured it out?

Once his identity was revealed, there was no telling how many powerful beings would be rushing to capture him.

Most importantly, he couldn’t prove that he didn’t kill Bai Lie!

The White Tiger Clan did not care about this, they only wanted to capture Ye Ling and see if he did it by searching his soul.

As he thought of this, Ye Ling’s eyes were filled with rage as he bit his lip, “What a ruthless scheme!”

“It must have been that man in white last night. He is the one scheming against me!”

After saying that, Ye Ling hurriedly executed a face-altering technique and changed his appearance.

For the time being, he could not walk around the streets with his true identity.

 Fortunately, there were many life-preserving techniques in the Ancient Deity of Reincarnation’s Inheritance that could help Ye Ling escape from the hunt quickly.

He could also use the power of reincarnation to hide his origins, which could also serve to conceal his identity to a certain extent.

Along the way, he had experienced many similar crises, but thanks to his disguises, he managed to turn them into blessings many times.

At this moment, in the Heavenly Dao Ancient City, a group of powerful White Tiger clansmen had rushed through several teleportation arrays overnight.

They were currently sacrificing a number of rare resources, including many precious bones and strange divine materials, and turning them into a small, ancient altar.

On top of the altar, there was an extremely bright red drop of blood, dripping and swirling, containing an astonishing divine aura! 

“What is this?”

“It’s a drop of the Young Master’s blood, and it was a good thing that it was preserved in the first place. I never thought it would come in handy today. As long as his corpse is still present, we will be able to find him and avenge his death!” An elder of the White Tiger Clan said with a sorrowful expression.

This kind of secret technique required a huge sacrifice.

But right now they couldn’t care less.

Soon, the incantation started.

There was a hazy glow, and in the midst of the blood, the shadow of a White Tiger appeared, roaring at the void before vanishing into it! At that moment, a figure emerged.

“Follow the direction of this shadow and you will find the Young Master’s body.” 

A group of powerful individuals followed the shadow of the White Tiger and took off.

At the same time, in the Ancient City to the east of the Heavenly Dao Ancient City.

In a barren, overgrown courtyard, a sudden burst of light appeared, and in the void, the figure of the White Tiger emerged before disappearing just as quickly.

In an instant, the void flashed as a group of elites appeared following the White Tiger.

“The Young Master’s body is around here!”

The Patriarch’s face was cold as he sent his men to search the area, and soon, beneath the courtyard, they found a cold, damp dungeon! Inside the dungeon, they saw one corpse after another.

“How could there have been a dungeon hidden here?”

They went inside and were dumbfounded!

“This…” Everyone’s faces turned white and chills ran down their backs, 

“Why are there so many corpses?”

“The young master’s corpse is also here, his whole essence and origin, all of it have been devoured…”

The Grand Elder gnashed his teeth in hatred when he saw Bai Lie’s long dried up corpse.

“Someone dares to kill the Young Master of my White Tiger Clan and devour his Origin? This offence will not be forgotten!”

He looked up to the heavens and roared!

Soon, what had happened here spread throughout the entire Heavenly Dao Ancient City, even other ancient cities. It was as though the news took flight.

This incident triggered a wave of terror, causing an unparalleled uproar.

Cultivators all around the Upper Realm were horrified and trembled with fear!

The Forbidden Demonic Arts, which had disappeared into the long river of time, was suspected to have re-emerged in the Upper Realm, and its Inheritor had killed the Young Supremes of various clans, devouring their Origins.

Now even the Young Master of the White Tiger Clan had been killed!

These corpses were found in a different Ancient City, in an underground dungeon. Many of them were not yet destroyed, but their origins had already been devoured! 

As soon as the news spread, it triggered a huge wave.

The entirety of the Immeasurable Heaven Ancient City was shaken!

The White Tiger Clan also heard that the person who had killed their heir, Bai Lie, was a man called Ye Ling!

There was a huge reward for any cultivator who provided information about Ye Ling!

Soon, a multitude of information about this man called Ye Ling was revealed to the Young Master of the Ancient Ye Clan, Ye Langtian. From there, he was able to discover many suspicious activities.

In a short while, the name of Ye Ling, the Inheritor of Forbidden Demonic Arts, was being spread so much that it caused a huge tremor, and almost everyone was screaming for the death of the heir of Demonic Arts.

Soon everyone was searching for the man known as Ye Ling, but they soon discovered that he had disappeared without a trace.

In the blink of an eye, several days had passed.

The world outside was in chaos.

The Announcement Ceremony for the Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace’s heir was held without any problems, with many Elders and disciples gathering in the square outside the Great Hall of the Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace, figures abounding.

Numerous disciples from other Daoist sects also rushed to witness the Announcement Ceremony.

The Great Elder himself appeared on the stage, his face hale and hearty as his white robes fluttered.

Below him stood a gentle, middle-aged man in a green robe with a long beard.

He was tall with eyes like stars and white hair like snow, standing on a high platform. He looked very handsome as the light and shadow floated around him, moving up and down in an almost hypnotizing manner.

He looked towards Gu Changge, who was close to him, and said with a faint smile, “The future of the Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace is now in your hands.”

Gu Changge smiled faintly and said back, “It’s too early for the Palace Master to say such a thing.”

Next to him was a group of Elders with unfathomable cultivation bases.

Below them were the true disciples and inner disciples in order.

As for the outer disciples of the Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace, they were only watching from afar, not qualified to come any closer.

All the disciples were now looking respectfully at the slender figure in front of them, and many were even envious.

Shortly afterwards, the series of complex rituals came to an end.

The expression on the Great Elder’s face was slightly complicated as he looked down at the lush, jade-like young man as he spoke.

“Today, at my Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace, under the Ancestor’s witness, I hereby announce the heir…”

“I designate true disciple Gu Changge as the current heir of the Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace!”

“Bring the heir’s uniform!”

After speaking these words, an Elder stepped forward with a smile on his face and a uniform for the heir in his hand!

The heirs of the Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace were not like those of the rest of the Daoist hierarchy, which changed every few decades or centuries.

As long as the previous Palace Master was still alive, the status of the heir would remain unchanged until the Palace Master left the Palace to live in seclusion and cultivate.

In other words, once the position of heir is established, it means that it will not change for at least a good thousand years.

“The Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace will be ruled by him in the future!”.

A crown of feathers and stars, a white robe with wide sleeves.

Every inch of it was exquisite and gorgeous as if embroidered by the millions of stars above the nine heavens, and the divine light flowed as if enveloped in an endlessly brilliant Immortal Spirit.

After putting it on, Gu Changge’s figure stood out, making him appear even more extraordinary and elegant.

The female disciples and Elders looked at the scene, their eyes flooded by an extraordinary brilliance as their hearts swayed.
