    Chapter 238: I Know Who You Are; The Human Ancestor’s Despair!

    The vast and boundless lotus body’s profound chaos aura descended, as if heralding the emergence of an immortal realm.

    And within the divine lotus was the figure of Gu Changge.

    He sat cross-legged, his eyes filled with interest as he looked down upon Jiang Yang, who had just entered this place.

    The stellar light on his robes flowed like the endless revolutions of a starry sky, bursting with an incomparably terrifying power.

    Oceans and mountains tumbled. The Sun and Moon shifted in the heavens above, as the sky was on the verge of collapse.

    At this moment, each of his cells seemed to be transforming into an ancient and vast universe, emitting a heartbeat that could shake the entire world.

    Under the devouring force of the Demonic Arts, the Pure Worldly Lotus had now been completely refined by him.

    His aura was no longer tangled and chaotic.

    Instead, it even possessed a sense of nature and order.

    No matter how monstrous the surrounding demonic aura was, he remained a safe harbour of purity, unable to be touched or corrupted. 

    Wisps of worldly light appeared one by one. The Heavens could fall, but he alone would remain standing. Eons of destruction, but he alone remained immortal. It was as if the might of his physical body could withstand even the annihilation of the universe itself!

    These were the changes to his physical body brought about by the Pure Worldly Lotus.

    Outside, strands of chaotic mist intertwined, as they completely isolated any and all aura fluctuations occurring within.

    This horrified Jiang Yang even more; his back was cold, and his scalp was tingling as if about to fall off.

    The situation was grave. He had even handed over his biggest reliance, the Xianlun Seal, over to the Zhao Yi standing outside, which meant that his only powerful means right now was the Reincarnation Seal.

    Gu Changge was simply waiting inside for him to come meet his demise.

    Jiang Yang’s heart sank into the abyss.

    It was the first time in his many reincarnations that he had encountered this kind of dangerous, life-threatening situation.

    Didn’t Gu Changge perish inside the Yuhua Heavenly Pond? According to his calculations, Gu Changge should’ve died in the pit ages ago, to the point where his bones wouldn’t be found.

    Who would have guessed that he would suddenly appear here unharmed, alongside the Pure Worldly Lotus that originally belonged to him?

    And he seemed to have already been here for an unknown amount of time.

    Perhaps Gu Changge had purposefully created the phantom of his death, fooling everyone in the outside world, and he himself along with them?

    Jiang Yang was not stupid; he had lived several lifetimes.

    Thus, he possessed a lot of experience, and realized that something was wrong almost immediately.

    Gu Changge had schemed against him.

    It was indeed a shame that, despite having lived so many lives, he was still kept in the dark, unaware of the trouble he was getting into.

    Jiang Yang forced himself to calm down. This wasn’t the time to panic.

    “I’ve been waiting for you for a long time, Human Ancestor.”

    But the next moment, as Gu Changge opened his mouth, Jiang Yang’s eye pupils could not help but shrink once again.

    Hearing that was similar to being thrown into the icy water. He felt a terrifyingly cold air sweep past his limbs, making his whole body feel frozen in place.

    “You know my identity… how can this be…”

    “From when…?”

    His voice trembled slightly, and his expression changed dramatically.

    For Gu Changge to so casually reveal his identity, and even say that he’d been waiting for him for a long time!

    With a bang, his mind went blank. This development meant… that this Gu Changge had known his true identity ever since they met!

    ‘Was he just pretending not to know? To avoid a frontal confrontation?’

    ‘All his previous actions, was he actually aware of everything? Then all my plans and decisions I took…was I just dancing in the palm of Gu Changge?’

    Thinking of this, Jiang Yang couldn’t help but tremble, and without him even realizing it; his hands trembled uncontrollably.

    Why couldn’t he notice any abnormalities before this?

    He thought that Gu Changge was just an ordinary person from the Upper Realm, who was at most a little cunning, but nothing to truly worry about.

    Who knew that he was the one who hid his schemes the deepest.

    “From when? Does it matter?”

    “Human Ancestor, your performance has disappointed me greatly.”

    “Shouldn’t you be acting as confident and as arrogant as before?”

    At this moment, Gu Changge spoke again, looking at Jiang Yang, who was dumbfounded, with a sinister smile, his words cold and indifferent.

    He slowly stood up.

    The terrifying power from the Lotus swept in like a tide.

    Outside the dome of the sky, the monstrous grey fog made a tsunami-like sound, so terrifying that the entire world shook.

    And even the stars outside the realm were affected, turning into ash!

    Dust and debris fluctuated with Gu Changge’s aura!

    “What exactly is happening inside? Why do I feel that Jiang Yang’s aura is changing and weakening?”

    Yue Mingkong stared at the terrifying grey fog in the sky with fear, her heart filled with hesitance and worry.

    In her opinion, Jiang Yang had disappeared into the deepest section of the Heaven Pond, and his target was most definitely the Pure Worldly Lotus.

    But she couldn’t go against this terrifying shadow to stop him.

    ‘Did something happen to Jiang Yang? He seems to be in a state of panic. His aura is weakening, perhaps an accident has occurred…’

    ‘Jiang Yang was so confident, setting up all these methods here, yet now it has gone beyond his control.’

    ‘Why does it feel more and more like he’s actually being manipulated by Changge… This strangely familiar feeling… could he have secretly followed me here?’

    Yue Mingkong frowned, she could only make such assumptions, and with a wave of her jade hand, she instructed the men behind her to guard the four directions, to prevent even any small fish or shrimp from slipping in.

    Upon hearing Gu Changge’s words, Jiang Yang’s face slightly contorted. Compared to the contempt he showed in the beginning, his mocking tone now made Jiang Yang even angrier.

    Yet there was nothing he could do about it.

    When he was in Xianlun Sacred Land, he thought that Gu Changge only dared to do this because he wasn’t aware of his identity.

    Who would have guessed that Gu Changge was aware of it all along, only pretending not to know, and was simply toying with him?

    “Who the hell are you?!”

    By now, Jiang Yang regained his composure, and his state of mind was firm. After all, he still had his biggest trump card, the Reincarnation Seal.

    He did not believe that Gu Changge possessed the means to end him.

    The most he could do is make all of Jiang Yang’s efforts in this life go down the drain by killing his current body.

    But what was one more reincarnation to the everlasting Human Ancestor?

    “What you need to know is only that today is the day you’ll die.”

    “Take this chance to leave your parting words.”

    Gu Changge smiled lightly, knowing what Jiang Yang was thinking.

    He didn’t mind making Jiang Yang despair before striking the final blow. A desperate scene was better for him, after all, since the success rate of the Fortune Plundering would be greater that way.

    Where was it said…

    That throughout history, villains have died because they talk too much?

    No. That’s merely because their methods were not meticulous enough!

    In Gu Changge’s view, the Human Ancestor’s Fortune had been depleting rapidly for a while now. This was especially evident in the Yuhua Heavenly Pond after his fight with Yaoyao, where his fortune reached its lowest point thus far, enough to almost fully break Jiang Yang’s composure.

    Severing ties with Yaoyao, who was supposed to be his major supporting character and help him expand his territory, was a massive blow to him.

    Furthermore, within the Tianchen Realm, most of the backhanded means he arranged had quickly dissipated under Gu Changge’s schemes, reduced into nothingness.

    How much fortune could Jiang Yang have left?

    He was even foolish enough to destroy his own temple walls – the Xianlun Sacred Land, thinking that these arrangements inside the Yuhua Heavenly Pond were seamless enough to handle everything.

    In the end, arrogance and complacency killed his chances.

    Perhaps the many easy lives had made him soft.

    However, Gu Changge still did not take action against Jiang Yang in front of Yaoyao and the cultivators outside. After all, if he did, his ‘master persona’ would promptly collapse.

    When he finished matters here, he would just show up outside with some random excuse of having been trapped, and escaping in the nick of time.

    Not to mention, Yue Mingkong was still observing everything from outside of the Yuhua Heavenly Pond.

    Hence, Gu Changge needed to warn her about the situation using a Divine Transmission Talisman, so that she would not break in and ruin his plans.

    And it was also because Gu Changge felt that with Yue Mingkong’s current methods, she would inevitably suffer a big loss in the hands of the Human Ancestor inside the Yuhua Heavenly Pond.

    She had already done what was needed of her.

    Now Gu Changge just had to close the heavenly net.

    “Last words? You are the first person who dared to say this to me… Since you already know that I am the Human Ancestor, it should be clear that you cannot kill me.”

    “No matter how many times I have to reincarnate, I will come back for my revenge!”

    Jiang Yang’s expression turned extremely calm, as he spoke lightly.

    He realized that all his means were useless, and so gave up resisting.

    Having said that, this would undoubtedly be regarded as a stain among his many reincarnations. He didn’t expect to suffer a big loss in Gu Changge’s hand and fall here.

    Unfortunately, it did not matter anymore, as he was already planning to break the Reincarnation Seal and escape into the reincarnation cycle.

    Then, when he regains his past life memories, and remembers all this, he would make Gu Changge understand how to spell the word regret.

    His various methods as the Human Ancestor was not something a mere Gu Changge could speculate about.

    “You’re being pretentious again, huh.”

    “Did you forget what I told you before? Young brats like you should know the immensity of Heaven and Earth and be less pretentious. Especially when in front of me.”

    Hearing this, Gu Changge sneered, not surprised in the slightest.

    He extended his rune-filled palm, heralding the descent of rules and order, as roaring, tsunami-like sounds screeched through the world, and transformed into an incomparably enormous palm that covered the sky.

    Before slapping down on Jiang Yang.


    “Damn it…” Jiang Yang frowned and wanted to dodge backwards, but it was far too late to avoid the blow.

    A terrifying force slammed onto him, causing the young man to cough up a mouthful of blood. His internal organs had ruptured, bones shattered, and almost half of his external body was on the verge of exploding.

    This was the result of Gu Changge holding back his strengths, so as to not let Jiang Yang die too easily.

    The so-called Favoured Son of Heaven, always carrying some inexplicable self-confidence. Did the Human Ancestor really feel that confident that he’d be unable to kill him?

    Simply ridiculous.

    “It’s pointless even if you kill me now; I, the Human Ancestor, always return in due time, no one can stop this.”

    “You may stop me in one lifetime, but you can’t stop me forever.”

    Jiang Yang’s eyes were incomparably gloomy, his hair dishevelled, and he was in an extremely desperate state.

    At this moment, though he was covered in blood, lying on the ground, and unable to stand up, he still had an arrogance that could not be dispelled.

    “’I, the Human Ancestor, always return in due time’? Wow, you sound like a complete Chuunibyou.”

    Gu Changge smiled faintly, before spitting out a word that Jiang Yang didn’t understand, although it was clear that it wasn’t a compliment. And with an unsightly expression of wanting to retort, the Human Ancestor continued to struggle. Even if he couldn’t resist at this moment, his mouth wouldn’t yield.

    Boom! Boom! Boom!

    However, Gu Changge did not give him the chance.

    He reached out his palm, covering the sky once more. But this time, it was even simpler, directly grabbing Jiang Yang into his hand, almost like how one would grab a doll from a toy store.

    “Just give up, it’s pointless even if you annihilate my true spirit.”

    “My immortality is based on the people who sing my name all over the heavens and earth! It is not something you can easily meddle with!”

    “You are still too naive to think about killing me with your means!”

    Jiang Yang assumed Gu Changge would become enraged, and was about to crush him to death.

    He couldn’t help but reveal a bit of mockery just by thinking about it.

    After all, this was the only confidence and certainty he could muster in front of the devilish Gu Changge.

    So what if he was being schemed?

    So what if he had to die in this life?

    He was arrogant and would not give in!

    “Now you look like such a fool.”

    “Didn’t you want to know who I am?”

    “Still thinking that there is a chance of survival when you’re at death’s door? How stupid can you be?”

    The smile on Gu Changge’s face didn’t change, it was still as faint as ever.

    With his words, Jiang Yang frowned, and the words of mockery got stuck in his mouth. Something was odd.

    Did he imagine it wrongly?

    Why was Gu Changge still so confident?

    Did Gu Changge really have a way… to kill him?

    Jiang Yang didn’t believe it.


    But the next moment, his complexion suddenly changed, as his eyes stared in shock, his face rapidly turning pale, with immense disbelief.

    A dense black light emerged, accompanied by palpitating rules of the Great Dao, falling down to form an astonishing waterfall-like sight.

    And within that light… was a black bottle.

    Held in the palm of Gu Changge’s hand.

    When that black light intensified, it seemed as if even the entire universe could be swallowed up inside!

    “Great Dao Treasured Bottle…”

    “How can this be…”

    “You… are the inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts…?”

    Jiang Yang shuddered.

    His voice carried an unconcealed tremble and terror, and for the first time in his life, he felt an instinctual fear.

    The Great Dao Treasured Bottle was something very familiar to him.

    Why did he actively seek out inheritors of the Demonic Arts following every reincarnation? Was it in order to rid the world of those demonic cultivators and return harmony to the people of all realms?


    It’s because the Great Dao Treasured Bottle was the sole nemesis to his reincarnation methods, the only thing that could kill him permanently!

    So he couldn’t let the inheritors of the Demonic Arts grow up and threaten him in the future.

    What for the sake of the people of the world? That’s all bullshit!

    He only wants to eliminate the threat to himself in advance!

    “Now you know my identity…”

    Gu Changge, as always, smiled lightly, and the Black Dao Bottle sank with a buzz, descending from the sky and enveloping Jiang Yang.

    Demonic aura flooded the world. A dark divine light obscuring the universe.

    “How are you… you are actually the inheritor of the Demonic Arts…”

    Jiang Yang’s face became extremely pale, filled with regret.

    He no longer had the confidence he had just now, believing that he could still return with reincarnation.

    For the first time in all his life, the Human Ancestor felt an imminent threat of death. He never expected ‘that’ to be Gu Changge’s true identity.

    It seemed that the terrifying figure that appeared outside earlier should also be the Myriad Demonic Dharma Body technique.

    He finally understood why Gu Changge plotted against him from the start, and why he wanted to kill him.

    “Why… is the Demonic Arts Inheritor in this life so powerful…”

    Jiang Yang’s voice trembled slightly, still finding it hard to believe.

    The inheritors he had encountered previously were not as powerful as Gu Changge, so powerful that he couldn’t even resist.

    “Powerful? No, it is because you are too weak.”

    Gu Changge’s voice remained indifferent, and with one step, he instantly trampled Jiang Yang beneath his feet.

    “No… impossible, you cannot be the inheritor of the Demonic Arts!”

    Jiang Yang was unwilling to accept the truth. 

    In his eyes, there was a flash of colourful light.

    However, in his current state, let alone resisting, he was struggling to even speak a coherent sentence.

    Under the terrifying suppression, many divine lights descended from the Reincarnation Seal.

    However, as the Black Dao Bottle unleashed its suppression, the immortal light of the Reincarnation Seal began to dim, and even cracks appeared on its surface, as if it was going to shatter soon.

    “T-this… the Great Dao Treasured Bottle you have… it is not refined from any Demonic Art! Could it be…?”

    “Ah, I get it now.”

    “I understand.”

    “So that’s how it is.”

    “I finally know who you are…”

    Jiang Yang’s ugly expression smoothed out as he paid attention to the Black Dao Bottle engulfing his life essence. His miserable state seemed to not matter anymore, and he simply stared as if he had just noticed something strange.

    Suddenly, the disbelief and anguish vanished, leaving behind resignation.

    Everything was as it should be. He seemed ready to accept death calmly.

    “Sure enough, you didn’t die.”

    He let out a despairing laugh.

    “Me? Why would I have died?”

    Gu Changge raised his eyebrows slightly.

    He did not take the words of a dying man seriously and continued smiling.

    But he was also confused. The change within Jiang Yang was ominous.

    He knew that the existence of the Black Dao Bottle was tied heavily to his own origins, involving countless secrets he had yet to uncover.

    Even his own memories were most likely sealed away by himself.

    He simply did not know what would emerge or when.

    Having said that, the Human Ancestor’s words clearly indicated that the Black Dao Bottle he possessed was the real deal, forged with endless divinity and immortal essence, a true cohesion of Dao.

    However, Gu Changge naturally did not bother clarifying anything now.

    Asking a foe for help would only disturb him more.

    “Looks like the descendant of the Human Ancestor Hall in this life has also fallen into your hands…” Jiang Yang was still laughing miserably.

    He recalled the experiences he went through after being lured out from the Xianlun Sacred Land.

    The secret technique of the Human Ancestor Hall that he’d sensed at that time was clearly the handiwork of Gu Changge.

    “Oh, you mean her?”

    Gu Changge smiled faintly at his words, and waved his sleeve.

    The space in front of him suddenly ripped open, as Jiang Chuchu’s figure within the Inner Universe was revealed, falling outside.

    A young lady cultivating on a green jade stone.

    During this time, she felt disturbed and found it difficult to calm herself. She suspected that the Human Ancestor’s Reincarnation might have been in an unfortunate accident.

    But she was not certain.

    Everyday was an ordeal, with innumerable complicated thoughts often flashing through her mind at once, as she sighed in doubtful uncertainty.

    Unsure of what the future might bring.

    Now, abruptly released from Gu Changge’s Inner Universe, Jiang Chuchu’s expression seemed a little confused and afraid.

    Clear, lotus-like eyes glared at Gu Changge, showing a questioning look.

    Could it be that Gu Changge had felt awfully benevolent that day and was ready to finally let her out?

    “Gu Changge…”

    Jiang Chuchu was about to speak and ask the reason.

    But Gu Changge spoke up first, naturally hooking his arm around her waist as he smiled lightly, “Look closely at the Human Ancestor you wanted to see so much. This will be the first and last time you two will meet.”

    “Don’t say I didn’t give you the opportunity.”

    Hearing that, Jiang Chuchu’s small face froze, slightly incredulous, as if she needed to double-check reality.

    Then she glanced at Jiang Yang, who was covered in blood, suppressed by Gu Changge to a point where one couldn’t even identify his face.

    This person who was stepped on by Gu Changge, who was in an extremely desperate state, was the reincarnation of the Human Ancestor.

    “He… he is the Human Ancestor…?”

    Jiang Chuchu’s voice trembled. She couldn’t calm down.

    Inside the teachings of the Human Ancestral Hall, the Human Ancestor was always depicted as a flawless, magnificent being, bearing all kinds of great and wondrous achievements.

    The painting that hangs in the Hall of Human Ancestors was still imprinted in the minds of all Human Ancestors Hall’s disciples.

    That magnificent figure, with his back turned back to all beings, as if no one in this world was worthy to look him in the face.

    Yet such a person was now stepped on by this great demon, unable to lift his head off the ground?

    But a descendant of the Human Ancestral Hall, practising the techniques of the Human Ancestral Hall, would not fail to recognize the Human Ancestor.

    The aura was not wrong.

    Jiang Chuchu felt like her world was about to collapse.

    She had assumed that, while Gu Changge had the upper hand, the Human Ancestor wouldn’t be much weaker; after all, he possessed many backups and had reincarnated himself numerous times.

    In terms of strength and means, how could Gu Changge be his opponent?

    However, things were exactly the opposite of her assessment.

    Gu Changge was so powerful that even the Human Ancestor was not his opponent and was easily crushed.

    “How is this possible…” Jiang Chuchu murmured, her face like snow frost, as if struck by lightning.

    She thought about saving the Human Ancestor.

    But even the Human Ancestor wasn’t Gu Changge’s opponent, so what could she do against him?

    Jiang Chuchu also grew desperate.

    “Why is that not possible? The Human Ancestor you revere is just an ant under my feet.”

    “The one you and the Human Ancestral Hall put so much faith in is right in front of you…”

    “But… do you dare to save him?”

    Gu Changge looked at her and smiled casually.

    Jiang Chuchu’s face was pale and her body trembled. If she wasn’t held by Gu Changge, she would’ve probably collapsed to the ground paralyzed.

    At this time, Jiang Yang naturally observed Jiang Chuchu.

    This was the real descendant of the Human Ancestral Hall!

    Speaking of which, this should be the woman who protects him in this life, but from the looks of it, it seemed that she had already been subdued by Gu Changge long ago.

    Not even her body was left pure.

    1TL/N: My boy Changge has already taken her V-card and cucked Human Cuckncestor.


    This made Jiang Yang desperate, frustrated, and furious…

    “You…” before he died, he wanted to swear profusely

    At this time, Gu Changge’s eyes were slightly narrowed, thinking that the time was finally here for harvest.

    “There will be no next life, you will not be getting another chance.” The devil smiled softly as he closed his palm.


    The next moment, the Black Dao Bottle trembled and began to descend. A horrible dark light flooded down and instantly devoured Jiang Yang’s body.
