    Chapter 212: A Gentle Person; Gu Changge’s True Strength!

    At this time, Gu Lintian, who was outside the Ancestral Hall protecting Gu Changge, suddenly felt something strange happening inside.

    Because he had blocked the fluctuations there, it made it difficult for him or any others to perceive the situation occurring inside the Nirvana Pond of the Ancestral Hall. 

    Anxiety arose in his heart at this moment. 

    For a powerful cultivator like him, his intuition was mostly accurate.

    Therefore, before he could think about it, Gu Lintian waved his sleeves and immediately opened the doors of the ancestral hall. 

    And even before he fully entered. 

    A surging Demonic Aura rushed towards his face, making his expression change uncontrollably. 

    “Not good!” 

    The problem he was most worried about still ended up happening. The many opportunities offered by the Nirvana Pond did help in the transformation of Gu Changge’s Devil Heart but also caused his evil Demonic Nature to break free from his control. 

    Yet, obviously, he was still half a step late in preventing it. 

    ‘Judging from the ferocity of this Demonic Nature, I am afraid that the Nirvana Pond’s transformation will be a curse rather than a blessing to Changge.’

    “Xian’er, are you okay?” 

    Gu Lintian quickly came to the depths of the Ancestral Hall and found Gu Xian’er, who looked dazed, sitting by the Nirvana Pond with tears on her face.

    What he worried about the most was that Gu Changge would make a move on Gu Xian’er. 

    It was the same more than ten years ago. 

    Now, once Gu Changge failed to suppress the Demonic Nature, would history not just repeat itself?

    It made a chill crawl down his spine.

    Seeing that Gu Xian’er was okay, he couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief. 

    “Uncle, I’m fine.” 

    Gu Xian’er saw Gu Lintian arriving and exclaimed worryingly, “Uncle, look! Gu Changge… something is… wrong with him…”

    As she spoke, her voice began to grow faint again. 

    “And he… his arm… to not harm me…”

    Gu Lintian finally saw Gu Changge, who was sitting cross-legged in meditation, with his eyes firmly closed. 

    The place where his right arm should be was empty, and colourful blood stains were splattered all around. A fierce divinity and vitality surged, intertwining and healing his injury.

    With Gu Changge’s current Cultivation Base, as long as his Primordial Spirit wasn’t destroyed, regrowing a few broken limbs was simply a matter of thought.

    This injury was practically nothing to him. 

    Gu Lintian did not seem surprised in the least. 

    From his point of view, Gu Changge’s breath was very calm and seemed normal. 

    But he couldn’t really tell whether the current Gu Changge and the previous Gu Changge had any major differences. 

    Even he wouldn’t be able to help Gu Changge if he was truly controlled by Demonic Nature.

    “Changge is fine, so you don’t have to worry about him. He is fine.” Gu Lintian sighed and consoled the crying Gu Xian’er. 

    He soon noticed the other three Young Supremes in the pond, who had passed out in the corner. 

    Thankfully, they seemed to have no long-lasting issues.

    However, to be on the safe side, Gu Lintian still took action to erase their memories of this matter. 

    1Kshn: Damn, now we got memory wipe too?

    2Blurry: Look at this object that will flash with a bright light at your face.


    Seeing this shocking scene, Gu Xian’er didn’t know what else to say, and her mind became muddled. 

    There were a lot of doubts in her head. And although Gu Lintian said that there was no need to worry about Gu Changge, how could she not worry about it, after what he had done? 

    ‘If Gu Changge did not sacrifice his hands at that critical moment, I would’ve been dead right now…’ was what Gu Xian’er thought.

    ‘Has Gu Changge been fighting against his Demonic Nature all this time in secret?’

    On the surface, the person she knew as Gu Changge was a spotless and perfect being, unparalleled in the younger generation, who always had everything under his tight control.

    But who knew just what kind of torture he went through daily in the dark.

    Gu Xian’er could still vividly remember Gu Changge’s violent expression at that time, and how he seemed to want to slaughter the heavens and the realms! 

    Yet even at that moment, he was able to stay sane, not give up in the slightest.

    Especially then; to the Gu Changge who was trying so desperately to protect her, how could she not worry? 

    Thinking of this, Gu Xian’er glanced at Gu Changge, as her emotions grew more and more complicated, mired in guilt and sadness. 

    Even if Gu Changge acted very bad and annoying to her usually, being cold and warm from time to time… 

    He treated her very gently and was good to her in the times when he could. 

    Suddenly, Gu Xian’er felt that the truth that she was searching for was actually right in front of her eyes. 

    “Uncle, why did Brother suddenly be like this? You seem to know about the origin of this affliction.” Gu Xian’er asked hastily.

    Gu Changge, who was still sitting crossed-legged in meditation, seemed to also be listening to everything that transpired as his injury rapidly healed.

    Only that she did not know which one of ‘him’ would be present once his eyes opened.

    Hearing this, Gu Lintian first glanced at Gu Changge, shaking his head before answering Gu Xian’er, “You have already seen everything yourself, so I’ll just let Changge tell you about this.” 

    “I won’t interfere with this kind of thing.” 

    ‘The Devil Heart is a sensitive matter, even if it is revealed, telling Gu Xian’er has to be his own decision.’ 

    Father Gu decided not to overstep and meddle in Gu Changge’s affairs.

    But even if he didn’t say anything, with Gu Xian’er’s character, she should be able to guess the gist of the matter. 

    Afterwards, Gu Lintian waved his sleeves and took Gu Changge away. Some things had to be clarified by him personally asking Gu Changge. 

    “This may be the secret that Gu Changge has been hiding for a long time.” Gu Xian’er was not surprised to see Gu Lintian not talking. 

    She also knew it well. 

    This may have something to do with Gu Changge’s innate talent, which led to a deep-rooted Demonic Nature, affecting his consciousness and behaviour in life. 

    That was why he dug out her Dao Bones when he was young.

    Later, Gu Changge’s Cultivation Base gradually became stronger and he could suppress this Demonic Nature without being affected by it. 

    “Perhaps Gu Changge dug out my bones in order to suppress the Demonic Nature, but over the years, because he felt guilty in his heart, he wanted to make it up to me by doing these things.” 

    “And he seems to know that one day he might not be able to suppress the Demonic Nature, so he made me work hard to cultivate, so I don’t get killed by him in the future.” 

    “You are obviously a caring person, so why do you feel the need to disguise yourself with indifference… Gu Changge, why are you so stupid.” 

    Gu Xian’er was whispering, thinking back to the times when she talked back to Gu Changge about all sorts of trivial matters, not understanding the heart and kindness in his actions. 

    She couldn’t help but feel a little guilty. 

    It was for these reasons that Gu Changge was so disappointed in her. 

    As a smart person, she quickly understood the ins and outs of the matter. 

    Today’s incident was the result of Gu Changge being unable to suppress his Demonic Nature, resulting in a backlash and subsequent possession. 

    If not for Gu Changge suppressing the Demonic Nature with strong willpower at the crucial moment, she would have definitely met with misfortune, and caused disastrous consequences for the family. 

    “Can my Fairy Bone aid Gu Changge in suppressing his Demonic Nature? But, with his cold personality, he will probably not pay any attention to me anymore after today.”

    “Saying that I’m trash who can’t help him…” 

    3Kshn: Are you not?

    Gu Xian’er suddenly became a bit distressed and entangled. 

    Even though she found out the truth that Gu Changge was born with an evil, deep-rooted Demonic Nature, she didn’t know the exact cause of all this. 

    In other words, she just possessed a rough idea of the situation. If she wanted to know more about Gu Changge, she still had to ask him in person. 

    But based on her knowledge of Gu Changge…

    It was impossible for him to tell her outright.

    Even if she already knew his deepest secret. 

    ‘Though the process may be difficult, I will definitely help you get through and solve this problem.’

    ‘I’m never gonna give up on you, Gu Changge!’

    Thinking of this, Gu Xian’er shouted to herself firmly in her heart. 

    Because she had thought of the masters behind her, who knew far more than her, might have solutions in mind. 

    And there was also the unparalleled and mysterious Big sis Taoyao from Immortal Period. 

    Even Gu Lintian was helping Gu Changge to conceal his secret, meaning it was not a good thing.

    Considering Gu Changge’s situation, she couldn’t easily speak out. 

    But telling it to her masters? There was absolutely no problem. 

    — — —

    [In a magnificent Great Hall.]


    Gu Lintian and Gu Changge, who had just recently recovered from his injuries, stood face to face. 

    Gu Changge spoke respectfully, his expression no longer as indifferent as from when he was in the Ancestral Hall. 

    Restoration of his arms did not leave any side effects either. 

    “What are the effects of the Nirvana Pond on you?” 

    Gu Lintian asked, looking carefully at Gu Changge. It was really difficult to see the events unfolding from the outside. 

    He also didn’t know how this outbreak of Demonic Nature would affect Gu Changge. 

    Fortunately, he isolated the Ancestral Hall and was just outside.

    Otherwise, the consequences would be unthinkable. 

    Gu Changge heard the words and replied calmly, “It’s okay. I underestimated the influence of the Devil Heart on me, but I have suppressed it now.” 

    Although he said that, he was actually smiling slightly in his heart.

    It was obvious that he would not reveal the truth at this time, fooling even Gu Lintian if necessary.

    Demonic Nature or whatever, how could it affect him?

    In order to make Gu Xian’er completely trust him, Gu Changge made such a move, since this type of routine has been popular since ancient times. 

    Obviously, there were no flaws in his acting.

    4Kshn: Except for the fact that we all already knew it was acting…

    Everything seemed extremely hectic at the time, but in fact, each move of his was calculated and precise. Even breaking his arms at a critical moment was calculated.

    Gu Changge knew that if he repeated digging out her bones, those masters behind Gu Xian’er would definitely show up. 

    He firmly believed in this. 

    That’s why Gu Changge chose such an approach instead. 

    This bitterness and the tragedy, let alone Gu Xian’er, at this moment, even Gu Lintian has a sad sigh hanging off his mouth. 

    Gu Changge didn’t feel guilty at all. Acting like this was in order to weed out and avoid a lot of hidden dangers in the future. 

    He would buckle all the blame on the Devil Heart.

    The results of this drama were quite obvious…

    Judging from the message prompts of the system, the Fortune Points gained from Gu Xian’er were already close to 10,000. 

    “Xian’er will probably ask you something about the Devil Heart later, so you should think it through first. I, as an elder, won’t intervene.”

    Gu Lintian looked solemn as he spoke. 

    “Father, don’t worry, the Demonic Nature will not affect me the next time.” Gu Changge continued. 

    “I know how to deal with Xian’er”

    “If you say that, then I feel relieved as a father. But I’ve embarrassed you, all these years, and I am still yet to find a cure.” 

    Gu Lintian sighed. After all, this wasn’t Gu Changge’s original intention. 

    Otherwise, he wouldn’t have made a move to self-destruct his arms trying to stop himself. 

    He knew Gu Xian’er was smart, so she won’t blame him. 

    But he also didn’t want to see Gu Changge being misunderstood. It was not easy, suffering from Gu Xian’er’s unprovoked hatred over the years. 

    “If the hidden danger of the Devil Heart is not eliminated one day, it will be a big problem.” Gu Lintian remembered many secrets about the Devil Heart. 

    This was an ominous sign. 

    No matter what orthodox force it was in, it would bring unimaginable, terrible consequences once revealed to the world. 

    Don’t look at Gu Changge’s beautiful prestige now, once the Devil Heart was exposed, although he would not become the world’s enemy like the Demonic Arts Inheritor, he’d still be more or less greatly affected. 

    Afterwards, Gu Changge left the Great Hall and returned to his residence. 

    Along the way, many people from the clan looked at him with doubts and strange expressions. 

    Although Gu Lintian took the initiative to solve the problems in the Nirvana Pond of the Ancestral Hall, it was impossible to hide everything. The matter was of great importance to many clan elders. 

    Rumours about Gu Changge getting possessed by demons while cultivating were also spread in private. 

    This made many clansmen think about how strange it was. They didn’t expect that Gu Changge, who was known as the Reincarnation of the True Immortal, would also have Heart’s Demon, which broke out in the Nirvana Pond.

    This matter caused quite a stir. 

    Having a Heart’s Demon was quite common for cultivators, but they usually appear when they become old and cultivation does not progress.

    Gu Changge was only in his twenties when Heart’s Demon appeared. What does it mean? 

    Many clansmen had sad faces, thinking that it was probably because of Gu Changge’s digging Gu Xian’er’s Dao Bones back then. He still felt guilty and couldn’t eliminate it. 

    Even if the bones have been excavated and returned to the younger sister, this was still the case. That’s why he got distracted witnessing Gu Xian’er’s newborn bones in the Nirvana Pond, letting the Heart’s Demon take control.

    This statement was recognized by many people, and it spread in Gu Family in secret for a while. 

    The high-level people also understood this and felt that it was the truth. 

    But on the other hand, they thought this was normal and were slightly relieved. If Gu Changge had no quilt about that…then it would be a problem.

    Solving a trivial Heart’s Demon was easy. 

    [A few days later.]

    The Nirvana Pond incident was also like an episode, and it did not continue to cause many waves. 

    On the contrary, Gu Xian’er took the opportunity to break through to the False God Realm. 

    Looking at the entire Immortal Gu Family, in terms of Cultivation Base, there were only a few people in this generation who could compete with her.

    There was also news that Gu Changge’s real Cultivation Base actually had actually reached the God King Realm or even the Quasi-Sacred Realm, but it was kept hidden from the world and never exposed. 

    All these statements have shocked many people. 

    The Cultivation Base of the younger generation was of the greatest concern for any force. 

    Although Gu Changge acts high-profile, not many people knew what his True Cultivation Base was. 

    The strength he showed on the surface was only a little higher than some Young Supreme. 

    But recently, a rumour saying that even Wang Zijin, the Saintess of the Human Ancestral Hall, couldn’t see through him was heard. 

    The assassin of the Great Sacred Realm, who appeared just a few days back, was obviously backed by the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts.

    Wang Zijin’s Cultivation Base of Quasi-Sacred Realm caused a sensation in the Upper Realm and countless young cultivators were shocked and deeply hit. 

    Before, the Young Asura Gu Changge, who was called the strongest in the younger generation, was enough to make them desperate; making them feel the pressure of the mountain pressing on their heads.

    But now, the descendant of the Human Ancestral Hall left seclusion with the Cultivation Base in the Quasi-Sacred Realm was more shocking.

    “Many stars will shine brightly in this so-called Golden Age.”

    Hearing this from her mouth, the masses were in an uproar, making waves everywhere. 

    The true strength of Gu Changge became a topic of discussion among all the orthodox masters for a while. 

    Many people thought that there must be something they missed.

    Ye Ling, the last identified Inheritor of Forbidden Demonic Arts’, since he dared to blatantly blend into the crowd of young Supremes to enter the Ancient Immortal Continent, showed that he had something to rely on behind him. 

    But in the end, he was hit hard and fled after almost dying by the hands of Gu Changge. 

    It wasn’t that Ye Ling was too arrogant…it was Gu Changge who was too strong and had an unfathomable Cultivation Base.

    For a time, all the major Daoist Sects studied Gu Changge deeply. 

    Someone even said that when he was in the Ancient Immortal Continent, Gu Changge showed methods suspected to be the laws that can only be controlled by the cultivator of the Sacred Realm. 

    Various speculations appeared one after another, pushing Gu Changge to the limelight once again. 

    And the initiator of all this, Wang Zijin, didn’t seem to feel that there was anything wrong, she felt that she was helping Gu Changge. 

    — — —

    [In the Great Hall]

    “Is Wang Zijin an idiot?” Gu Changge frowned slightly when he heard the news. 

    Although his true Cultivation Base had long since reached the middle stage of the Sacred Realm, his surface Cultivation Base was only the God King Realm, and was still far from the Quasi-Sacred Realm. 

    Gu Changge wanted to make plans about spreading the news of his Cultivation Base, but Wang Zijin chose to go ahead and implement all of his plans. 

    Now, the one thing that Gu Changge didn’t lack, was popularity. 

    Too much attention, for him, was bad cause it created a flaw in his plans.

    Moreover, Gu Changge had another purpose. 

    If at this time, one or two Ancient Freaks were to leave seclusion and came to make a name for themselves, looking down on his Cultivation Base, it would’ve been better. 

    It just so happens that he still lacked an opportunity to continue to make breakthroughs. 

    Those Ancient Freaks, Heavenly Princes and so on, since they have the courage to proclaim themselves as such, must be exceptional. 

    In this way, Wang Zijin’s words were equivalent to telling the Ancient Freaks that Gu Changge was not someone they could provoke. 

    “Ruining my plans… I’ll settle this account with you later.” 

    Gu Changge couldn’t help but squinted his eyes. He knew these routines well and was planning to use them. 

    But Wang Zijin knew it too, so she took the initiative, thinking that she could make things less troublesome for him. 

    Thinking, that maybe Gu Changge will develop some good feelings for her.

    But she didn’t know that Gu Changge planned to let these troubles come to the door. 

    Same as how it was for the younger generation before. Because of the young generation’s struggle, many lost their lives in his hands… and all their talents were pocketed by him.

    “Young Master, I’ve found the information you wanted. Over the years, Miss Xian’er’s parents have indeed been trapped in a different realm.” 

    During this time, Yan Ji, who was ordered by Gu Changge to investigate the matter of Gu Xian’er’s parents secretly, also came back and reported. 

    “Very good.” Gu Changge nodded. 

    “According to the Master’s order, I sent a lot of people to protect them secretly, but Miss Xian’er’s parents are very strong, and noticed us” Yan Ji continued. 

    “It’s okay. I just want them to notice and make them feel as if I have spent a lot of time searching for them in secret all these years.” Gu Changge couldn’t help but smile. 

    He didn’t like doing good deeds without leaving a name. 

    This kind of thing, he wanted to let the whole Gu Family know, and let them understand his good intentions as the Young Master. 

    Hearing this, Yan Ji’s beautiful face showed some thoughtfulness, before nodding. 

    “It’s just that why doesn’t the Young Master show up in person? And aren’t we acting quiet, so that the Gu Family members would not be aware of it?” 

    She was a little puzzled, wouldn’t it be better for Gu Changge to go there by himself for this kind of thing? 

    “It needs to be set up well.” 

    “If I go personally, it will not be effective, but instead counterproductive. It will make people feel that I have another plan. That’s why I have to act in secret, you understand?” 

    Gu Changge smiled casually and said something that Yan Ji didn’t understand. 

    Hearing that, her eyes, like a red glaze, showed a daze and confusion, which looked a bit dull. 

    Obviously, she didn’t know much about the situation of the Immortal Gu Family. 

    Gu Changge’s remarks made her even more at a loss. 

    But at this time, she nodded, “Understood.” 

    Hearing this, Gu Changge looked at her and laughed, “When did you even learn to talk nonsense in front of me, Yan Ji?” 

    5Kshn: He did what? He laughed? After you tell us for the last 5 chapters about how indifferent he is? This ducking author…

    “Young Master…” 

    After being pierced by Gu Changge in this way, Yan Ji’s face couldn’t help but turn a little red. 

    — — —

    [At the same time, outside the gate of the Immortal Gu family.] 

    A figure with a face shrouded in mist, dressed in a moon-white robe, drove for a long time. Before this, she visited the Immortal Ye Clan and finally came here. 

    She looked at the magnificent mountain gate in front of her, and said to the Immortal guard in front of the mountain gate, “I’m the descendant of the Human Ancestral Hall. I have come to visit Young Master Changge, please let me through.”
