I Am the Fated Villain – Chapter 122


Chapter 122: The Blame Has To Be Carried By Someone; Ye Ling’s Acquaintance?

Gu Xian’er’s head was buzzing.

She saw all of the True Disciples congratulating Gu Changge.

And she was the only one who didn’t move, like an idiot who was glued to where she was sitting.

When she came back to her senses, Gu Changge was already hidden deep in the crowd

However, he didn’t even spare her a glance this time, let alone talk to her. This time he didn’t approach her like he always did with that annoying face which usually makes her angry just by looking at it.

Gu Xian’er felt conflicted. She couldn’t determine whether she was happy or not when Gu Changge finally stopped pestering and bullying her.

On the one hand, Gu Changge took the initiative, taking her Sword Strike without defending. Because of that he was gravely injured and almost died.

With that, their grudge should have already been settled as he paid for the pain he inflicted onto her by risking his life in such a manner.

For that reason, she should no longer resent him for what happened before.

After all, nothing in the world is eternal. Gu Changge wanted to repay her for what he did before, and he has done that now. 

Although the two weren’t without grudges, Gu Changge’s actions have indeed reduced the hatred between the two by a lot.

In addition, Gu Changge welcomed the exiled family branch back into the Ancient Immortal Gu Family, even releasing those who were once detained.

Since the beginning, Gu Changge had only shown kindness to her. However, she didn’t accept him at all, believing him to be an aloof individual who never had and never will put anyone in his eyes.

She thought that there was no way someone like him could be kind to her without ulterior motives. 

Her Masters also asked her to be more careful when she is outside, so she was very sceptical about many of the things that have happened until now.

It was also her overthinking that had led to her accidentally injuring Gu Changge.

That is why she was not satisfied with what happened.

She has put in so much effort, cultivating long and hard, nurturing her hatred for him until now. How could the matter be resolved so easily?  

She hadn’t yet defeated Gu Changge in an upright manner.

‘How can he act like everything is already fine?’

‘He is going to treat me as a stranger? A passerby? Not even an enemy?’

When her thoughts had reached this point, Gu Xian’er fell silent and felt a sense of loss.

Soon after, the Heir Announcement Ceremony smoothly ended.

Gu Changge came down from the high platform, chatting and laughing with other young supremes.

Meanwhile, the Great Elder, alongside the other elders, had left one after another.

They left the place hoping that the younger generation could be more open around those of the same age and develop connections with other forces.

Many Young Supremes soon started congratulating Gu Changge.

After all, he is the heir of Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace, one of the top-level forces of the Upper Realm.

Moreover, Gu Changge’s other identity as the Young Master of the Ancient Immortal Gu Family was no weaker than his identity as the Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace’s heir.

In the Upper Realm, there are only a few other Young Supremes like Gu Changge with multiple titles. 

People with such extraordinary identities were scarce.

Furthermore, his fiancee is the future Empress of the Supreme Immortal Dynasty.

With such a terrifying background, provided there were no accidents and he did not suffer an early death, he would definitely stand at the top of the world in the future.

His status would be so high and influential that he can decide the life and death of innumerable worlds and creatures.

Everyone already knew that he would soon be one of the Upper Realm’s top figures.

“Congratulations to Brother Gu. Brother Gu’s strength is unfathomable! When I saw you today, you had immediately become an example to live up to, and now you have even become the Heir of the Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace. It really makes one envious.”

The one who spoke was Peng Fei, a descendant of the Great Golden-Winged Peng Clan. He was covered with golden hair and golden light which flowed all around him. Although he had a stubborn and obsessive personality, he is both powerful and talented.

But in front of Gu Changge, he didn’t try to act arrogant or superior, and the words he said were spoken with sincerity.

This remark surprised many young supremes who sighed with admiration, as even the arrogant, unbridled, and rebellious Peng Fei who had proclaimed himself invincible, had tempered his attitude in front of Gu Changge. 

Even he had uttered such kind and flattering words, showing just how terrifying Gu Changge’s power and status truly is.

Of course, this didn’t mean that the other Young Supremes feared Gu Changge.

If a fight truly broke out, they would not be afraid of a battle.

But it’s not as though they were stupid, why would they offend him? He wasn’t some nobody with no background. A person who would just jump up and laugh in his face?

It is impossible to find such a person.

Hearing these words, Gu Changge smiled faintly, “Fellow brothers are very polite.”

Although it was a bit boring due to the lack of face-slapping, it was good for Gu Changge. So far, at the very least, he hadn’t encountered anyone stupid enough to jump out and question him.

On the contrary, it was always him who took the initiative to provoke others.

Speaking of, in front of him, even the Favoured Sons of Heaven are there only to be trampled upon by him.

Suddenly, Gu Changge remembered Ye Ling, who was now carrying the Forbidden Inheritance’s black pot for him.

The Favoured Son of Heaven with the Ancient Deity of Reincarnation’s Inheritance. That was the trope bestowed upon him, and Gu Changge had already known the route he’ll take.

Rising from humble origins, slapping the faces of Young Supremes, shining brilliantly, and achieving the highest peak.

But now, Ye Ling was reduced to a street mouse by him. Everyone wanted him to die, seemingly becoming the whole Upper Realm’s public enemy.

In this regard, Gu Changge didn’t say anything.

He only gave a meaningful smile whenever this matter was mentioned.

He chatted and laughed with a group of Young Supremes with a calm expression.

His eyes occasionally turned to Gu Xian’er, who looked a little dazed and depressed as she stood alone in the distance.

He didn’t show anything on his face but was smiling in his heart.

Gu Xian’er’s thoughts right now, how could he not know?

After all, he intentionally directed it to develop in this way.

No matter how Heaven-Defying Gu Xianer’s luck was, even if there are powerful and mysterious masters behind her. In the end, she was just a little girl with a simple and soft-hearted personality.

How can she not be swayed by the methods of a person like Gu Changge, who can even sell her without her knowing?

At any rate, Gu Changge had no reason to hurry. Everything was going the way he wanted, and he had no reason to rush things.

He didn’t worry about wasting time. He just needs to take the right steps at the right time.

“I wish to know, what is Brother Gu’s opinion on the Inheritance of Forbidden Demonic Arts?”

At this moment, a cold and crisp female voice suddenly sounded.

When Gu Changge heard this, he kept his smile and turned towards the person who spoke.

The person speaking was a petite woman who looked only 13 or 14 years old, wearing a colourful feather coat. She looked like an immortal fairy-like child.

She had features that were white and delicate, with black hair like silk, shimmering and shiny with a straight shawl as she exuded a cold and arrogant air.

It was Chi Ling, the descendant of the Vermillion Bird Clan.

In Gu Changge’s words, she can be called a ‘Legal Loli’. 

“Inheritor of Forbidden Demonic Arts should definitely be punished, why does the Holy Maiden Chi Ling ask this?” Gu Changge looked at her and replied with a smile.

When the other Young Supremes heard this, their faces changed visibly.

Recently, the matter regarding the appearance of the Inheritor of Forbidden Demonic Arts caused a massive sensation in the once calm Upper Realm and made it turbulent.

Many cultivators had panicked. Even the Young Master of the White Tiger clan was brutally murdered and had his origin absorbed.

Many people were implicated and suffered from the wrath of the White Tiger Clan.

The White Tiger Clan is extremely powerful. They are dominant in many corners of the inner region of the Upper Realm, all regions of the middle region, and all states of the outer region, all of which are intertwined.

An Ancient Immortal Family like White Tiger Clan is obviously prominent and has relations with many other Ancient Immortal Clans that gave birth to emperor-level existences that are known as Ancient Emperors.

They were originally a branch family of the Royal Tiger Family, such as the White Tiger Clan. However, an Ancient Emperor was once born among their ancestors and since then they became a separate race and were revered as the White Tiger Immortal Family, which is now much more respected than the Royal Tiger Family.

Of course, the most important thing is that there are too many Ancient Immortal Families when counted together.

Their powers are so great that all the sects and families must show respect to them.

Races such as the White Tiger and the Vermillion Bird were even closer to being immortals due to their ancestors, and their status is no weaker than that of the Ancient Immortal Families.

[Editor’s Note: Just for those who didn’t understand a few lines above. ‘The White Tiger Clan, which is now a separate Family used to be a branch Family of the Royal Tiger Family but after an Ancient Emperor was born in their family they left the Royal Tiger Family and now are even more powerful than them. Many Immortal Families(not Ancient because they are newly formed) like White Tiger Clan and Vermillion Bird Clan are related to each other in one way or another, so when all of these forces are combined they are not weaker than the Ancient Immortal Families like Gu Family.’ If someone still has some doubt, please comment.]

When Chi Ling heard Gu Changge’s words, Chi Ling frowned and said, “Isn’t the matter regarding the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts has been exposed unexpectedly and suddenly?” 

“Throughout the ages, no matter the news exposed about the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts, it was a major event that shook the realm and triggered all kinds of tragedies. The Inheritor itself also possessed an incredibly high amount of strength.”

“Isn’t the current Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts too weak this time? It is said that he has yet to reach the Conferred King Realm, so how did he kill Bai Lie, who had various life-saving methods?”

Although various pieces of evidence pointed to Ye Ling indeed being the Inheritor of Forbidden Demonic Arts, Chi Ling found this suspicious.

The White Tiger Clan also announced they would find Ye Ling’s location and avenge their young master.

Recently, they have dispatched many Experts, along with many treasures that can help find the whereabouts of a cultivator and see-through disguises.

But Chi Ling still didn’t believe it because she and Ye Ling knew each other.

She once encountered him in a secret realm. Since then, she had a good impression of Ye Ling.

In her opinion, he was a determined and intelligent young man. Although his means of seeking and grasping opportunities were not that glorious, he did not have the cruel and indifferent personality that previous Inheritors of the Forbidden Demonic Arts were rumoured to have.

And she knows that Ye Ling’s mysterious inheritance is most likely the Inheritance of the Ancient Deity Of Reincarnation.

So how can he also be the Inheritor of Forbidden Demonic Arts?

“Indeed, how did Ye Ling kill Brother Bai Lie before had even reached the Conferred King Realm? This Gu has also found this to be quite suspicious.”

“Brother Bai Lie, as the Young Master of the White Tiger clan, must have a lot of life-saving treasures on him. Ask yourself, brothers, we all definitely have a lot of hidden cards. How can someone like us be killed so silently?”

“Although I haven’t met Ye Ling, I have heard that Brother Ye mention his use of weird methods. Obviously, he did not have many cultivation resources, but his Cultivation Base still rose very quickly.”

“Furthermore, many powers’ talented disciples and Young Supremes have disappeared inexplicably, and the Inheritor of Forbidden Demonic Arts has reappeared in the world, so how can these two things not be linked together?”

“To be honest, when Brother Ye and I were recounting the old days, I also doubted the suspicious person he was talking about.”

After saying that, Gu Changge showed a thoughtful look, he nodded to himself and told some of the “doubts” he had to the Young Supremes present.

Then told his analysis in detail.

In any case, it sounded like he was standing on the “Ye Ling” side.

Although Ye Ling threatened to challenge him, he must show his generosity at this time.

In the eyes of everyone, there was no comparison between him and Ye Ling. They are simply people from two different worlds.

When she heard this, Chi Ling also had a look of approval, and a small  smile appeared on her cute loli face, “It seems that Brother Gu’s opinion is the same as mine.”

She had always heard the rumours that Gu Changge was a cold, perverse, and hard-to-talk-to person, but today she saw that the rumours were all too wrong about him.

Those rumours must have been made up and spread by people who wanted to discredit him and make him look like a big bad villain.

[Editor’s note: Imagine a cute Loli (Chi Ling) saying, “Gu Changge is a big bad villain”. Thank me later.] 

When speaking with Gu Changge, one can feel the spring breeze of nature caress them as they peer into his gentle expression that was fair like jade, his grace was simply transcendent.

‘If this is a disguise, then Gu Changge is truly horrible.’

Chi Ling wanted to believe this is Gu Changge’s real character.

Ching Ling believed that the rumours of Gu Changge covering the sky of the Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace with one hand were simply due to his overwhelming power and incredible might that no one dared to create trouble and provoke him. 

At this time, many Young Supremes nodded their heads when they heard Gu Changge’s words, showing a different look as they couldn’t help but feel the truth in his words.

But at this time…

Ye Langtian, surrounded by a divine aura, stood up slightly with a cold look directed at Chi Ling. He retorted, “We should pay attention to the appearance of the Forbidden Demonic Arts Inheritor. It is not a question of whether you believe it or not, your belief is not required. Some time ago, when I was talking with Brother Gu, this point was also mentioned.”

When he said that, he saw the other young supremes with looks of doubt written on their faces. He told the suspicious things he knew about Ye Ling while also agreeing with what Gu Changge said before.

Ye Ling is a member of one of the Ancient Immortal Ye Family branches. He also didn’t get much in terms of cultivation resources. 

How did he compete with the Young Master of the main family?

Ye Lingtian added, “Ye Ling has been away from the family for a long time, and no one knows what he practised or did when he was away. Also, some time ago, Ye Ling’s Cultivation Base increased rapidly after his return.” 

“Moreover, the Ye Family didn’t hear any news about Ye Ling entering any Orthodox Sect either.”

There were too many doubts but no answers.

“As a member of my Ye Clan, if Ye Ling does such a thing, my Ye Clan will surely take responsibility and offer up an explanation to all those who follow the Taoist traditions.”

Then, Ye Langtian continued to say that he had already informed a clan elder about this matter, stating that he now has the full authority to handle it.

He has also been consistently trying to use different treasures to find Ye Ling.

Initially, he planned to use Ye Ling’s family members to lure him out and trap him, but Ye Ling was ridiculed and rejected since he was a child.

He was an outcast, so he presumably wouldn’t care about the life and death of his family members.

Ye Ling’s biological father also passed away some time ago, and Ye Ling’s mother remarried as early as when Ye Ling was young.

Because of this, this method was disregarded.

He believed it was also the reason for Ye Ling’s character.

“Brother Ye’s words are indeed reasonable, but with so little evidence, isn’t it too much to conclude that Ye Ling is the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts?” Chi Ling said with a frown after hearing Ye Lingtian’s explanation and reason. 

She couldn’t understand why Ye Lingtian was so against Ye Ling, making her believe that Ye Langtian was the true inheritor of the Forbidden Arts and was simply trying to throw the black pot at Ye Ling while he had the opportunity.

[Editor’s Note: What a naïve little loli. Vote for Loli in the Harem]

Unfortunately, she couldn’t simply say that Ye Ling was actually the Inheritor of the Ancient Emperor of Reincarnation. Not to mention, there is no guarantee that everyone will believe her.

They might even ask why she was so sure?

In addition, the temptation to snatch the Inheritance of the Ancient Deity of Reincarnation was much greater than the temptation of the Inheritance of the Forbidden Demonic Arts.

It would simply prove too much.

When this news spreads, even more cultivators will be on the hunt for Ye Ling’s whereabouts. 

Ye Ling’s situation wouldn’t improve at all and would get worse instead.

“Since Ye Ling is the Inheritor of Forbidden Demonic Arts. How can we be sure what he showed to the world was his true strength? Otherwise, how could he have killed Bai Lie so easily?” A Young Supreme spoke. His whole body was hidden in mist, and only his eyes that seemed to bear an infinite depth were revealed.

He is Wang Wushuang, the Young Supreme of the Ancient Immortal Wang Family.

“Who among us can truly determine Ye Ling’s strength? In the end, these are all mere speculations. We could easily wrong an unfortunate person by mistake.” Chi Ling rebuked instantly, her delicate face became cold, arrogant and displeased. She wanted to defend Ye Ling, but she had nothing to prove he was being framed.

Hearing her, the other Young Supremes frowned and could help but whisper among themselves.

‘Why is she so protective of Ye Ling?’ 

‘Defending him again and again, even claiming he is being framed. What’s the matter?’

‘Does Chi Ling personally know Ye Ling, and how were they related for her to defend him so vigorously?’

“Ye Ling is innocent? Chi Ling, can you say that in the face of the White Tiger’s Clan Head?” Peng Fei, Young Supreme of Great Golden-Winged Peng Clan, as if he was waiting for her to say that, sneered and asked her back immediately.

Ye Langtian, as if he finally got the opportunity he was waiting for, added without wasting any time, “When I investigated Ye Ling, I found he once entered a secret realm. Coincidently, you were also in that realm when he entered. Could it be that you and Ye Ling are familiar with each other, and that is why you are defending him like this?”

As soon as the other Young Supremes heard those words, the atmosphere suddenly took on a hushed tone as knowing smiles began to appear. 

Unlike them, Chi Ling’s face turned ugly. Ye Ling was currently being suspected of being the Inheritor of Forbidden Arts. Even though his true disposition was unknown, people would rather kill millions of innocents than let someone suspected of being an Inheritor of the Forbidden Arts go.

Since Ye Ling was carrying the black pot of being the Inheritor of Forbidden Demonic Arts, there was no benefit in even associating with him. 

The Inheritance of the Forbidden Demonic Arts causes a major panic in the Upper Realm whenever it appears. 

Even she, a Young Supreme of the Vermillion Bird Clan, would have a very difficult time if she got involved. Even her family would be affected and suffer unnecessarily.

Chi Ling’s face turned gloomy as she kept silent.

Seeing that everyone had quieted down, Gu Changge smiled and spoke.

“Brother Ye, maybe the Holy Maiden Chi Ling is just worried that we are targeting an innocent. Perhaps she believes that, while all the cultivators are targeting Ye Ling, the true Inheritor of the Forbidden Arts would have more freedom to commit evil.”

“If that happens, the end will be a terrible disaster. We must not take this matter lightly and proceed with caution.”

“She said that considering the situation of all creatures. For now, let us forget this matter.”

Before, Gu Changge didn’t know how Chi Ling and Ye Ling knew each other, but he finally understood after hearing his ‘Good’ Brother Ye.

Chi Ling must have encountered Ye Ling in that secret realm and received his help, and that is why she is speaking up so much for him now.

When he finished speaking, his smile had turned into a smirk as if he had just made the perfect evil plan.
