I Am the Fated Villain – Chapter 254

    Chapter 254: Please Respect Yourself; Can You Continue Acting, You Imposter?

    Ying Yu sobered up from the wine not long after that.

    She blearily opened her eyes, still a little confused.

    The events that had happened in the pavilion seemed a little blurry to her. But she remembered that she’d taken the initiative to raise many toasts to Gu Changge in their drinking session.

    And he never refused either.

    In the end, it was she who blacked out first, and needed to be helped up.

    “It’s too shameful to be drunk in front of people.”

    “Fortunately, I didn’t talk any nonsense at that time…”

    Ying Yu breathed a sigh of relief, but upon thinking of this further, she couldn’t help but blush.

    “Little Yu…”

    At this moment, Ying Shuang, who had come to visit Ying Yu, happened to see this odd scene.

    The young man slightly frowned.

    ‘Who is Ying Yu thinking about? Why does she look a little shy?’

    This made Ying Shuang’s complexion worsen, and he subconsciously thought of Gu Changge.

    ‘After going out for a trip and coming back, Ying Yu was thinking about Gu Changge?’

    “Elder brother.”

    At this time, Ying Yu also noticed Ying Shuang’s figure near the door, leading her to swiftly straighten out her expression, before asking, “What are you doing here?”

    “I was going to see how you were doing, but it seems that my intentions are a bit redundant…”

    Ying Shuang responded lightly, clenching a bowl of medicinal soup for sobering up in his hand.

    But Ying Yu didn’t notice the emotion in Ying Shuang’s words at all and merely continued talking:

    “Right, there’s something I need to tell you. Heavenly Emperor’s Mountain was probably plotted against by outsiders, and Young Master Gu, who’d been involved in the matter, was actually being used by them…”

    She had arrived at this truth after thinking about it thoroughly.

    Because why would Gu Changge harm them for seemingly no reason?

    Not to mention, the two descendants of the Ancestral Hall also possessed the same attitude.

    Unless Ying Shuang had been hiding something from her.

    Otherwise, the only other feasible explanation was that the True Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts had been plotting against everyone, making Ying Shuang bear the blame, and using Gu Changge.

    Hearing Ying Yu say this…

    Ying Shuang’s complexion became even uglier, and he answered directly.


    “What exactly did that Gu Changge tell you, for you to call him Young Master Gu after a single meeting?”

    Ying Yu was taken aback for a moment, not knowing why Ying Shuang thought so decisively, thinking that it was impossible without a lick of hesitance.

    For a moment, her eyes glinted with a suspicious light.

    But she didn’t say anything more.

    It seemed that Ying Shuang was indeed hiding many things from her, and his attitude towards Gu Changge was completely full of biased hatred.

    Since they understood that someone was plotting against them, and that Gu Changge possessed no hatred or grudge against Ying Shuang, it stands to reason that he would only need to show his face and take the initiative to confess the truth, to obtain Gu Changge’s understanding.

    In this way, Heavenly Emperor’s Mountain could also clear the suspicion of harbouring the Demonic Inheritor.

    So why doesn’t he do it?

    — — —

    [In a lofty pavilion.]

    Wang Zijin, wearing a light, azure long dress, exuded an unparalleled aura. Her flawless and perfect body was like an immortal, descending from a painting of myth, blessing the mortal realm.

    She was currently sitting by one of the pavilion windows.

    The young girl propped up her chin with a single hand, her other tapping rhythmically on the table in front of her, while she looked bored as can be.

    Meanwhile, Xiu’er was diligently pouring tea for her master. 

    “Elder sister……”

    Wang Wushuang stood before his sister with a smile.

    A simple and honest look.

    He touched the back of his head in a fidgety manner. 

    The current Wang Wushuang did not have his usual capable and reliable appearance at all.

    “What is it?” 

    Wang Zijin glanced slightly at her cheap brother, before asking angrily, “If it’s not a big deal, and you dared to use the amulet I gave you, I’ll let you know how the Spider Lilies1Though I’m not sure, I think this is a reference to the Tokyo Ghoul. All of you must remember the scene when Kaneki devoured Rize literally, right? She’s from Earth so there’s a 50% chance she was an otaku. TLDR: Red Spider Lilies symbolizes Death. turn red later.”

    She did not expect that Wang Wushuang’s usage of the amulet was not because he had encountered any danger or harm, but instead because he wanted to summon her.

    ‘He dared use this amulet as a mere summoning talisman?’

    Wang Zijin felt that giving him this precious amulet was all in vain, and that she would not be giving another one to him anytime soon.

    And as for Wang Wushuang…

    He’d long gotten accustomed to the endless barrage of nonsensical words his sister would often say.

    Although he still did not understand any of it.

    However, Wang Wushuang could feel that it carried the same meaning as teaching him a lesson.

    Having said that, he still hurriedly continued, “Didn’t Sister say that if: I encountered an emergency, I should activate this amulet, and Sister would come by herself?”

    “That’s what I said. But only for urgent matters! For example, when your life is in danger…”

    “I’m very busy right now, don’t you know that? That idiot Jiang Chuchu just rushed to the Land of the All-Devouring Sky recklessly!”

    Wang Zijin sounded a little speechless.

    Regarding Jiang Chuchu, who was one of the few people she could talk to and have a good relationship with, who could roughly be regarded as her best friend, she was actually very caring towards her.

    The day she left the Immortal Wang Family’s abode and went to look for Jiang Chuchu.

    She wanted to personally confirm some things from Jiang Chuchu’s mouth.

    Yet, she didn’t expect that upon mentioning the words ‘Gu Changge’ in front of Jiang Chuchu would cause her expression to freeze into ice, becoming at least a hundred times colder than usual. 

    And later, after hearing that the All-Devouring Sky had been born, Jiang Chuchu quickly rushed off.

    So, she had no choice but to follow.

    Fortunately, the two of them possessed many secret techniques, leading them to find out the origin of where the All-Devouring Qi permeated from quite easily.

    Jiang Chuchu then rushed in without a second thought, despite her warnings.

    This made her feel very helpless.

    Wang Wushuang was afraid of being blamed by his sister, so he hurriedly explained, “Sister, you are the one who said this. That if there was any new information surrounding Young Master Changge, I would need to inform you immediately.”

    “This time, it was Young Master Changge who asked me to tell him your whereabouts.”

    “That’s how I understood the importance of this matter, so I informed you immediately…”

    ‘Gu Changge?’

    Hearing this, Wang Zijin immediately became interested, and stopped blaming Wang Wushuang.

    “You said he was asking about my whereabouts?”

    Naturally, Wang Zijin paid special attention to this man, who was so very exciting to her, yet couldn’t be seduced even through her best efforts. 

    The last time they saw each other was when she said her goodbyes to the Immortal Gu Family.

    But unexpectedly, Gu Changge would take the initiative to contact her this time around.

    And considering his character.

    There must have been an issue or important situation for him to act like so.

    “Could it be that this guy wants to ask me for help?”

    Wang Zijin soon put Jiang Chuchu’s matter behind her.

    Although Jiang Chuchu was her closest friend, her adventure into the All-Devouring Sky made it very difficult for her to even attempt to follow.

    So she decided to help her own crush first and find another way later.

    Even though Gu Changge might only be asking her for something.

    It still made Wang Zijin a little happy.

    After all, it meant that Gu Changge still remembered her, and that he hadn’t forgotten her yet.

    “Okay, then tell Gu Changge that I will wait for him here.”

    Wang Zijin thought about it for a moment, before speaking with a smile.

    Gu Changge was a smart person, and he would definitely come here when he finds out.

    — — —

    [Within a very remote Mountain Range, Profound Heaven]

    “Is this the entrance to the All-Devouring Sky’s Battlefield?”

    Two figures suddenly appeared in the sky and set foot on the barren soil.

    Gu Changge, raising his eyebrows, had asked in a seemingly puzzled manner.

    “Yup, doesn’t it feel like if you don’t pay attention, you’ll never find it anywhere? However, there should be more than one entrance like this out there.”

    Beside him was Wang Zijin.

    She placed her hands behind her back, smiling authentically.

    Gu Changge had already heard a lot of news from her about the location of the All-Devouring Sky’s Battlefield.

    Upon receiving Wang Wushuang’s reply, he’d set off to meet Wang Zijin without any hesitation, and ended up learning a lot from her.

    And Wang Zijin herself didn’t hide anything from him at all, telling him everything there was to know, a fact that saved Gu Changge much trouble in differentiating truth from falsehood.

    Among these titbits of knowledge, was information regarding the Battlefield of the All-Devouring Sky’s entrance.

    He’d been too lazy to send someone to investigate it, so he asked her about it directly.

    The existence of the All-Devouring Sky’s Battlefield was similar to a small secret realm.

    This was because when the All-Devouring Sky descended, it would consume and devour hundreds and thousands of worlds, causing the All-Devouring Sky’s Qi to pervade through reality, cracking barriers between the many worlds, and fracturing them into small, world-like regions.

    Giving birth to the All-Devouring Sky’s Battlefield.

    “Hehe, aren’t you grateful that I’m here to help you?”

    Wang Zijin looked at him with a faint smile on his face, “Very few people know about the existence of the All-Devouring Sky’s Battlefield.”

    “I am grateful indeed.”

    Gu Changge smiled slightly as he replied, “It’ll be easier to obtain a quota this way.”

    But Wang Zijin only smiled teasingly, seemingly unmoved.

    “That’s true. But unfortunately, Brother Gu’s thanks, in my opinion, is not very sincere.”

    “Just one sentence is merely perfunctory.”

    Hearing this, Wang Zijin shook her head, looking troubled, “We took a lot of time to find this place.”

    She didn’t intend to let Gu Changge leave unscathed.

    A simple word of thanks?

    Don’t joke around.

    Gu Changge’s smiling eyes narrowed slightly.


    He clearly caught the word, not missing this tiny, but crucial detail.

    Gu Changge speculated that it might have something to do with another descendant of the Human Ancestral Hall, that obviously being the one and only Jiang Chuchu.

    But how did Jiang Chuchu arrive at the All-Devouring Sky’s Battlefield?

    Having said that, the expression on his face only changed to one of slight intrigue, “How can this Gu thank Miss Zijin sincerely then?”

    “Hm… how about you repay me with your body?” Wang Zijin replied with a smile. 

    She did not believe that Gu Changge’s expression could remain as indifferent as usual after hearing such a shocking answer.

    And although she knew that Gu Changge would probably want to strangle her to death after such a tease, she really didn’t care all too much, since this strategy felt rather interesting to use.


    At that moment, even Gu Changge seemed slightly taken aback.

    But he soon shook his head, and spoke with a ‘lady, please respect yourself’ type of tone, “This Gu already has a fiancée, Miss Zijin. You should not speak such words.”

    “If Mingkong accidentally hears it, she’ll turn over your world from jealousy.”

    Wang Zijin looked at his current attitude.

    She wanted to just roll her eyes in exasperation.

    ‘What’s with the pretending to be a serious person, acting so upright and righteous?’

    However, on the outside, she still revealed a thoughtful look, changing her tone to match:

    “In ancient times, men had many wives and concubines. I never thought Brother Gu would be such a dedicated person.”

    “It seems I was the one who was abrupt.”

    “How about this, Brother Gu, give me something you hold close to yourself.”

    “Something close to me? Very well.”

    Gu Changge did not hesitate when he heard these words.

    He directly took off the crystal jade pendant tied around his waist, a mystical item swirling with Dao patterns, looking very extraordinary. 

    Before handing it readily to Wang Zijin.

    “If I need any help in the future, can I use this jade pendant to find Brother Gu?”

    Wang Zijin received it with a smile, seeming quite happy.

    “Of course.”

    Gu Changge smiled and nodded.

    Yet he was also secretly laughing in his heart. 

    ‘Sure, it’s no problem for you to come and find me, but if you actually want me to help you, then no shot.’

    Following that interaction, the two found a hidden space fluctuation within the mountain range.

    There was an extremely cold aura within it, circulating and diffusing, which caused the surrounding vegetation to wither, stained with small, dark brown particles.

    It would be difficult to dispel this coldness even if nine suns were suspended in the sky.

    “The aura of All-Devouring Qi, although not very pure… does seem to seep out from here.”

    Observing these substances, Gu Changge couldn’t help but comment.

    Wang Zijin also nodded and said, “From here you can go to the All-Devouring Sky’s Battlefield. As for the entrance in the other direction, I’m not too sure about it.”

    Gu Changge’s eyes narrowed once more.

    It was actually very difficult to determine the true location of the All-Devouring Sky, but it was also a simple task if one searched according to the direction of the All-Devouring Qi within the All-Devouring Sky’s Battlefield, following its pathways.

    Afterwards, the two returned along the same road.

    On the All-Devouring Sky’s Battlefield, except for the hot-blooded younger generation, one would be hard-pressed to find anyone from the older generation, unless they were a righteous person with a strong sense of justice, intending to sacrifice themselves to prevent the eruption of the All-Devouring Sky.

    Having said that, some of the younger generations possessed other reasons for staying there.

    Reasons that were a tad more practical.

    For example, if one wanted to get a place in the True Immortal Academy, one would have to kill a certain amount of All-Devouring Spirits to qualify.

    So, there was no way they would miss it.

    Thus, Gu Changge was not worried that there would be any overly powerful existences disturbing his plans at that time, making it easier for him to implement them.

    “I’ve heard that Brother Gu has come into contact with Ying Yu from Heavenly Emperor’s Mountain. How do you feel about her brother?”

    Halfway through the road, Wang Zijin suddenly asked about this matter.

    While she was staying in the Immortal Gu Family, she had been suddenly attacked by the Inheritor of Demonic Arts, and was seriously injured in the process.

    It was a hatred and humiliation she’d always remember.

    And in her opinion, no matter what the possibility, this Inheritor of Forbidden Demonic Arts was inseparable from Heavenly Emperor’s Mountain and Ying Shuang.

    “Miss Ying Yu is quite straightforward. Unfortunately, I don’t know much about her brother, and I haven’t even managed to see him yet.”

    Gu Changge’s expression was natural as he calmly lied.

    “Does that Prince Ying really intend to be a coward for the rest of his life? If he is not the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts, why is he so hesitant in showing himself…”

    Wang Zijin firmly believed in her own judgement, not to mention that when she asked Jiang Chuchu about it, her answer was also a silent agreement.

    If there was no problem with Heavenly Emperor’s Mountain, then considering Jiang Chuchu’s moral character, she would have definitely defended them right then and there.

    But she chose to remain silent instead.

    This means that even she herself feels that there was something wrong with Heavenly Emperor’s Mountain.

    “In that case, I have a way to make Ying Shuang show up…”

    When Gu Changge heard her say this, he looked deep in thought for a long time, before answering, “When the time comes, we will know whether it is true or not.”

    And Wang Zijin nodded without doubting it.

    At that time, the Forbidden Demonic Arts Inheritor had caused the Gu Family to lose face.

    Therefore, it was normal for Gu Changge to choose to respond like so.

    — — —

    Within the next few days, Ye Langtian, Ye Liuli, Chi Ling, and the rest all learned about the location of the All-Devouring Battlefield from Gu Changge.

    It was a delightful surprise for them.

    The location of the entrance was not easy to find.

    During this period of time, they had worked hard to search every corner they could for information regarding the All-Devouring Battlefield’s location, but had not yet succeeded.   

    Yet Gu Changge, who’d arrived in Profound Heaven for a few days, had already found out everything.

    Of course, they didn’t know that this news actually came from Wang Zijin.

    Furthermore, the only reason he told them about it, was because he felt that he needed to plant at least a couple of acquaintances inside the All-Devouring Battlefield, so that he could easily come up with an alibi if something went wrong.

    On the other side, Ying Yu also received the news from Gu Changge.

    Her silver eyes widened in surprise.

    She herself had been inquiring about the All-Devouring Battlefield as well, though to no avail.

    After all, it involved the quota of the True Immortal Academy.

    One less person knowing meant one more slot for others.

    And yet, Gu Changge was actually giving up this extra slot by telling her about it.

    This moved Ying Yu a little, though the news inevitably came with a request:

    If she met anyone from his side during the exploration of the All-Devouring Battlefield, she would try her best to take them along with her.

    In this regard, Ying Yu naturally felt that there was no problem.

    It’s just a small thing compared to the news she received.

    From this incident, she also witnessed Gu Changge’s generous and confident character.

    Possibly, because he knew that no one could compete with him for the Immortal Academy’s quotas.

    Ying Yu soon spread this news to the rest of the younger generation within Heavenly Emperor’s Mountain.

    However, she did not say that it was Gu Changge who had informed her about it, as she was afraid of causing Ying Shuang dissatisfaction, making him unwilling to leave the pavilion.

    Wouldn’t revealing it only help others obtain more slots?

    She needed to do this in order to force him into action.

    “It’s God’s will. Since we have found this battlefield, let’s head off immediately.”

    Ying Shuang himself did not know the source of the news.

    Hearing what Ying Yu said, he merely thought about it for a moment, before deciding to leave.

    If he still wanted to hide at a time like this…

    What would be lost wasn’t only his face, but also the face of the entire Heavenly Emperor’s Mountain. Some might even start doubting the authenticity of his identity.

    Soon, several days passed.

    Following Wang Zijin’s instructions, everyone finally arrived at the All-Devouring Battlefield.

    The sky was covered in a grey, perpetually overcast shade, as bleak and jagged clouds floated in the gloomy atmosphere. And although the sun was clearly shining, a sense of extreme cold permeated the surrounding air.

    The mountains reigned tall and magnificent, and the terrain infinitely vast, yet the only characteristic one would remember of it, was that it looked barren and lifeless.

    No life. Not a single living creature around.

    Even the so-called All-Devouring Spirits were actually just normal cultivators and beasts, who were contaminated with All-Devouring Qi, eventually transforming into All-Devouring Spirits.

    Most would lose their consciousness, becoming walking corpses that only knew how to consume life and leave behind death, though the few lucky enough to be born conscious… were also incompatible with the outside world, and would be hunted to death.

    “There are already some people here…”

    Ye Langtian and the others looked very surprised when they found that all the All-Devouring Spirits near the entrance had been cleaned up before their arrival.

    Moreover, the aura of All-Devouring Qi here was already making them feel very uncomfortable.

    If they went too deep, they might encounter something life-threatening.

    “Gu Changge didn’t come with us; he should have gone in very early on…”

    Ye Liuli muttered under her breath as she inspected the dead creatures.

    The group then left this place to find another gathering place of the All-Devouring Spirits.

    After a long while, spatial fluctuations appeared in that location once more.

    The creatures of Heavenly Emperor’s Mountain had arrived.

    Ying Shuang, Ying Yu, and the others appeared from a spatial crack, accompanied by a few Ancient Freaks, such as the man in black – Agu, who’s been sealed up to this day.

    Wearing a dragon robe, Ying Shuang stood with his hands behind his back, as his gaze calmly swept around the scenery, before speaking in an indifferent manner, “It seems that someone has arrived first. Let’s see who is so bold as to be ahead of Heavenly Emperor’s Mountain.”

    Now was the time to stabilize his imperial majesty as Prince Ying.

    He would make a move to silence all those who dared doubt him.

    “Look, he really couldn’t help coming.”

    “Well, no matter how you look at it, the current Battlefield of All-Devouring Sky is the biggest breeding ground for Inheritors of Forbidden Demonic Arts.”

    “There’s no reason not to come.”

    From the other direction, Gu Changge, who’d been staring at the entrance, couldn’t help but smile.

    Wang Zijin also nodded in agreement.

    “However… he seems to have noticed us.”

    “What a powerful consciousness.”

    Ying Shuang’s powerful spiritual sense surprised her a little, to think that he had the ability to perceive their locations from so far away.

    “Worthy of being the Heavenly Prince.”

    Gu Changge smiled slightly in response, “Then I will leave the rest to Miss Zijin.”

    The void in front of the white-robed man blurred, before his figure blended into it and vanished.

    And Wang Zijin rolled her eyes in annoyance, knowing that Gu Changge planned to simply stand by and watch the show unfold.

    But she didn’t care too much about it.

    At this time, it was definitely necessary to take revenge on Ying Shuang, and it didn’t matter if there was no concrete evidence proving he was the Forbidden Demonic Arts Inheritor or not.

    She’d beat him up regardless.


    Wang Zijin’s figure disappeared in a wisp of green smoke.

    Inside the area where Ying Shuang and the others were located terrifying fluctuations erupted, as an array of gorgeous runes bloomed from the void like peach blossoms.

    Ying Shuang was the first to bear the brunt of this attack, but didn’t even manage to react at all, his expression suddenly changing, “Who–”


    But before he could finish his words, he was punched in the nose by Wang Zijin, and immediately let out a muffled groan, flying through the air, leaving a trail of blood and the sound of cracking bones.

    “Young Master…” 

    “Elder brother…”

    The countenance of Heavenly Emperor’s Mountain’s representatives changed drastically.

    Incomparable shock!

    “Haha! Imposter, at this time, can you still continue to pretend?”

    Gu Changge’s laughing figure remained hidden inside the empty void.

    Looking at this scene, he couldn’t help chuckling, eyeing the show with great interest.
