    Chapter 267: The Secrets of the Demonic Arts’ Founder; Perhaps a Dark Horse will Appear!

    “Young Master Changge… must be joking, how could we possibly-” 

    “We could never doubt you-“ 

    Jun Gou’s face turned pale, his head buzzed as if it were about to explode.

    He spoke quickly, his voice trembling slightly, stuttering every so often.

    He finally felt the terrifying oppressive force that came with confronting Gu Changge, which made people shudder and palpitate.

    “Qingge, open your Sea of Consciousness so they can see your relationship with the Demonic Arts’ Inheritor.”

    Gu Changge, on the other hand, ignored him and repeated it once more, his voice still calm.

    “Since they don’t dare to probe into my Sea of Consciousness, I’ll choose a day to go to the Confucianism Academy’s door and find someone who has the guts to do so.”

    Not to mention the disciples of the Confucian Academy.

    Every cultivator present had felt a chill run down their backs. Their expressions had changed dramatically, feeling the harsh cold backing Gu Changge’s words.

    He was most likely furious!

    What did it mean to go to their door with Gu Changge’s identity?

    This meant that Gu Changge would almost certainly start a war against the Confucianism Academy because of this matter.

    They often kill hundreds of millions of miles across the sea. 

    But to explore Gu Changge’s Sea of Consciousness? 

    Even the founder of the Confucianism Academy would not dare!

    Why was it that even though Prince Ying was suspected of being the Demonic Arts’ Inheritor, no one dared to explore his Sea of Consciousness?

    It was also because of this reason.

    As the Young Masters of Immortal Families, they represented the face of the family! 

    And Gu Changge’s status was even higher than that of the Emperor’s son.

    Hearing this, Jun Gou and the others trembled in fear, their lips turned white, their heads spun, as their consciousness was on the verge of collapsing.

    Although the Confucianism Academy was also an Ancient Great Sect with a long heritage, in the face of such unfathomable behemoths like the Royal Family or the Ancient Immortal Gu Family, they were nothing but mere ants.

    “Yes, Young Master.” 

    At this time, Su Qingge also listened to Gu Changge’s words, closed her eyes obediently, and opened her Sea of Consciousness. 

    But the place was dead silent; no one dared to speak, and even their breathing was deliberately suppressed. 

    Was there anyone who’d dare to explore Su Qingge’s Sea of Consciousness?

    “Go ahead and try.” 

    Gu Changge’s voice sounded again, filled with indifference. 

    His gaze slowly swept towards the Confucianism Academy disciples in front of him.

    Many terrifying visions appeared between heaven and earth in an instant. Even those from afar couldn’t help but tremble.


    The next moment, everyone, including Jun Gou, no matter how unwilling or humiliated they felt, couldn’t help but kneel as they begged him in trembling voices,

    “This matter is entirely our fault. We should not have offended Miss Su I hope Young Master Changge will be magnanimous and forgive us.”

    Those who humiliate others will always be humiliated, and they will only have themselves to blame.

    Compared to probing her Sea of Consciousness, begging for mercy was a lighter punishment.

    Silence lingered for a full 15 minutes as no one dared to speak in front of Gu Changge.

    The Confucianism Academy’s disciples broke out in cold sweat as they thought of the possible consequences. 

    “Forget it. This Gu is well aware of the things regarding the Demonic Arts’ Inheritor. If Qingge really has anything to do with the Demonic Arts’ Inheritor, I will act immediately and without mercy.”

    “However, if someone dares to use this to intimidate her so casually… don’t blame this Gu for being ruthless.” 

    With that, he waved his hand, his expression regaining its usual calm. 

    “Thank you for your generosity, Young Master Changge!”

    Everyone from the Confucianism Academy looked like they were fished out of the water, with their entire bodies drenched in cold sweat. 

    Soon after, the ‘misunderstanding’ was resolved. The disciples of the academy compensated Su Qingge with plenty of material wealth, such as Divine Artifacts and Sacred Medicines.

    Su Qingge then silently followed behind Gu Changge and left.

    As for the Demonic Arts’ Inheritor who appeared before, their identity remained a mystery. 

    In the past, the Demonic Arts’ Inheritor had disguised himself as someone else, blending in with the crowd. There was hardly anything that anyone could’ve done.

    They could only be careful as not to be singled out like Zhao Xiaoyao, and give the Demonic Arts’ Inheritor an opportunity to take advantage of. 

    But today, without saying a word, everyone in the Confucianism Academy offended Gu Changge, and their stomachs turned green with regret.

    For a while, all kinds of discussion ensued, with varying opinions clashing against one another. By the end of it, the majority had come to agree that there was nothing wrong with Gu Changge’s actions.

    The Confucianism Academy was entirely to blame for this situation. After all, it was they who jumped to a conclusion before the situation was clarified.

    — — —

    After leaving the All-Devouring Battlefield, Gu Changge took Su Qingge back to the mansion he was temporarily residing in. Along the way, he didn’t talk much to Su Qingge, his expression seemed very calm and profound. 

    A myriad of thoughts flashed through his mind.

    His plans were right on time, and the scheme was on point. He himself could hardly pinpoint any flaws.

    It would seem that despite her clever nature, Su Qingge had yet to realize that it was Gu Changge who’d set her up.

    Gu Changge appeared again at the critical moment to save her, forcibly brushing up a wave of goodwill.

    But now, Gu Changge had practically concluded that Su Qingge was the Demonic Arts’ Inheritor of this generation. 

    With his Great Dao Treasured Bottle, he could clearly perceive the Demonic Aura.

    Although Su Qingge couldn’t detect his presence, from a close distance, Gu Changge could perceive the Great Dao Treasured Bottle that she had condensed with runes. 

    This feeling was similar to seeing a real and a fake painting side by side, with the key difference being that the fake painting was extremely blurry.

    Gu Changge was tempted to ask her how much of the Demonic Arts she had learned… one percent? 

    Probably far less.

    The Demonic Arts Inheritance was not limited to simply condensing the Dao Bottle. There were many secret techniques to it.

    Such as Immortal Binding Arts, Myriad Changes Demonic Physique, Infinite Immortal Wisdom, Heaven Restricting Arts… 

    Su Qingge had probably never even heard of these things, let alone cultivate and learn them.

    Gu Changge suspected that the inheritance she had received was a mere fraction. Perhaps the other Demonic Arts Inheritors were the same in that regard… 

    The secrets of the Forbidden Demonic Arts’ founder were far too grave… a person whom Gu Changge felt very closely connected to. In fact, they might even be one and the same.

    Gu Changge had an expression that was both calm and profound.

    Su Qingge followed behind him, vaguely able to guess what he was thinking. 

    Alas, it was quite difficult to find the words that she needed.

    It’s true that the predicament had been resolved. 

    But it was obvious that Gu Changge’s words at that time were all based on what he saw. Before that, he had no idea that she would come to Profound Heaven. 

    He was told by his mother that she was coming to find him? It was a poor excuse that he made up to resolve the predicament.

    Su Qingge was very smart, and understood Gu Changge’s intentions, so she answered accordingly. 

    But now, Gu Changge was obviously waiting for her to speak up and explain everything. 

    After thinking it through, Su Qingge couldn’t help but blink her bright eyes, and took the initiative to tug on Gu Changge’s sleeve, with a slightly coquettish tone in her voice. 

    “Young Master~” 

    “I’m sorry, Qingge lied to you today.” 

    “Oh? What did you lie to me about?” 

    Gu Changge returned from his thoughts, and without turning back, he asked casually, as if he was waiting for Su Qingge to take the initiative to speak. 

    “Young Master, Qingge should not have lied to you when she said she came to Profound Heaven to find you.”

    She replied bluntly because, knowing Gu Changge’s temper, she was afraid that if she didn’t tell the truth in front of him, she might accidentally upset him.

    “Oh, so you didn’t come to Profound Heaven to find me? Did you not want to see me at all?” Gu Changge asked lightly. 

    “The Young Master doesn’t want to see me anyway. What would I have done if I had come to you and you had refused to see me?”

    There was a slight grievance in Su Qingge’s voice. 

    Gu Changge asked with interest: “Why would I not want to see you?” 

    “Young Master, you had left me in the Primordial Divine Sect for so long and had never returned to see me. I thought you had forgotten about me. There are also many outstanding Heavenly Daughters around you, such as Princess Mingkong and the descendants of the Human Ancestral Hall. Qingge knows that she doesn’t have a big place in the Young Master’s heart as a woman.” 

    “I came here just to kill the All-Devouring Creatures so that I can enter the True Immortal Academy to cultivate…” 

    “I didn’t come here to see the Young Master.” 

    Su Qingge was very calm and composed, expressing all the thoughts in her heart. 

    She was not afraid that Gu Changge might blame her at all. 

    “Good. You’ve grown bold, Qingge. What’s more, you speak to me in such a cheeky manner.”

    Then, Gu Changge finally turned around and pinched her delicate and flawless chin. 

    His expression was neither happy nor angry.

    “You came to Profound Heaven, but instead of coming to see me, you cause me all of these troubles. You need to clean up after yourself…”

    “Could you help me clean up then, Young Master~”

    Su Qingge didn’t know where this courage came from. Maybe it was because of his actions, maybe it was the unconditional trust that had moved her so deeply… 

    Contrary to her usual self, she looked at him invitingly and winked.

    “This woman– after realising that I don’t want to let go of you, your first instinct is to lure me in…” 

    Hearing this, Gu Changge shook his head helplessly. 

    “Young Master~~~” 

    Su Qingge deliberately dragged out the end of her voice when she spoke, with a super happy smile on her face.

    “Young Master, can I ask you a question?” 

    “What question?” Gu Changge raised his eyebrows slightly.

    “If I really am the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts, what will you do to me?” 

    “Why ask such a strange question? Isn’t the Forbidden Demonic Arts’ Inheritor Prince Ying? Could it be that you really have something to do with him?” Gu Changge asked casually, not seeming to care. 

    “N-no no, Young Master, I just asked because… I wish to know where I stand in your heart.”

    Su Qingge stared at him closely. 

    “Then do you still need to ask? Of course, I’d have to kill you so that you don’t become a disaster for the rest of the world.”

    Gu Changge had an expression as if he was looking at an idiot.


    “Young Master, you’re too heartless.” 

    Su Qingge’s expression was a little sad, “But if it’s from Young Master’s hands, I’ll die without regrets.”

    “If you truly are the Inheritor of the Demonic Arts, then it would be my fault as well. After all, I brought you to the Upper Realm, so maybe I’ll accompany you shortly after…”

    Gu Changge smiled slightly and pinched her pearly nose. 

    “Young Master, don’t talk nonsense. You are destined to be the most outstanding person in the world. I am not worth it.”

    Although Su Qingge knew Gu Changge’s words were a joke, she took him seriously.

    “If you know it’s nonsense, then why pay much attention to it?” Gu Changge smiled as he always did, but deep down, he was intrigued.

    [Several days later]

    During this period, with the gradual disappearance of the Demonic Arts’ Inheritor, Prince Ying, Profound Heaven had become peaceful.

    Many geniuses, regardless of whether they were the new generation’s Young Supremes or Ancient Freaks, they all formed groups.

    When they went hunting the All-Devouring Creatures, they always went together, which saved them from encountering the Demonic Arts’ Inheritor when they were alone.

    This method appeared to be very effective. For a long time, no one had reported any attacks relating to the Demonic Arts’ Inheritor.

    The True Immortal Academy in the Profound Heaven finally began to accept disciples, covering the entire Upper Realm.

    Regardless of background, power, or race, everyone would be able to enter as long as their bone age was under fifty.

    The only requirement was to kill All-Devouring Creatures and earn enough points to meet the quota.

    Over time, the young geniuses who had earned enough points rushed to the Profound Heaven one after the other.

    In the sky, majestic and astounding Divine Ships and Flying Vessels could be seen rumbling and passing by every day.

    With astonishing momentum, all kinds of ferocious Ancient Beast mounts flitted around, covering the sky and the sun. 

    It was a golden age, with clouds drifting in all directions and stars gathering in the sky.

    The Flood Heaven1Literal TL: “Hong Yu Tian”, which was named after a powerful being named Hong Yu, who some say had long surpassed the cultivation of a True Immortal and reached an even higher realm.

    Of course, there was no way to verify whether it was true or not.

    The Flood Heaven’s terrain was vast and mysterious, with countless Sacred Mountains and Immortal Trees standing incredibly tall.

    Looking down from a high altitude, one could see an incomparable amount of Immortal Aura rising from all over the place, Qilins leaping, Phoenixes fluttering their wings, and all sorts of extraordinary phenomena, like an Immortal Paradise.

    It was not without reason that the True Immortal Academy was located here.

    Whether it was cultivation resources, the great Emperor’s residence, relics of Supreme Beings, or the countless opportunities, such as the Immortal Medicine Tree, and the Divine Spring. It was the perfect location to establish a foothold in the Upper Realm.

    A place from where True Immortals were most likely to emerge in the world. 

    However, at this moment, the True Immortal Academy was in disarray.

    Inside an Ancient Palace standing in the void, rusted and surrounded by chaotic air.

    A few old men were flipping through a copy of an ancient book, their eyes filled with an incomparably terrifying and chaotic aura.

    Within the book, were records of all the Young Supremes under the age of fifty. 

    Their faces were still. 

    Even seeing the reincarnations of Ancient Sages, Innate Supremes2Innate Supreme = Young Supremes born with innate abilities., disciples of ancient deities, Unrivaled Battle Physiques, and even the Sword Spirit Sovereign… they remained indifferent.

    In their eyes, these terrifying young existences seemed common, making it rather difficult to catch their attention. 

    Suddenly, a look of shock flashed across the eyes of an old man, and when he took a closer look, his expression changed again, as if he was surprised.

    The person next to him also looked over, his brows also furrowed, and he murmured: “Immortal Demonic Physique, capable of reversing Yin and Yang, and breaking through the cycle of reincarnation.” 

    “Immortal Demonic Physique, this physique hasn’t been seen in years…” Another old man came over and said softly. 

    “I can’t remember exactly how long it has been.” 

    Even the eyes of the old man next to him betrayed his surprise, “It seems another monster will appear in this generation.” 

    “Along with the Gu Family, the Wang Family, the Phoenix Clan, the Heavenly Emperor’s son from the Heavenly Emperor’s Mountain, the Buddha’s son from the Golden Cicada Temple, and the possibly hidden Demonic Arts’ Inheritors are among those with potential in this generation…”

    “Perhaps an unexpected dark horse will also appear.” 

    “And the strange stone that has been sealed for countless years in my True Immortal Academy is also about to emerge into the world.”

    “Hmmm, the fate of the Demon Realm’s heir is unclear. For now, let us begin the battle among the top 10 candidates.”

    At the mere mention of the Demon Realm, their faces tensed in an almost apprehensive manner.

    It’s not because that they were afraid of the Demon Realm. 

    It was because the True Immortal Academy had an ancient demon existence that came from the Demon Realm. 

    The disciple he once taught was now Empress Xiyao, ruler of the Demon Realm.

    Other than Empress Xiyao, he had never taken in another disciple, which led to a very awkward situation where no one dared to take in an heir of the Demon Realm as a disciple whenever they came to the True Immortal Academy.

    The ancient demon existence himself didn’t accept them. No matter how talented they were, he did not care. 

    The rest of the elders were also not good enough to overstep their boundaries and act on his behalf, so it was rare to see an heir of the Demon Realm coming to the True Immortal Academy.

    Hence they were wondering if there would be someone from the Demon Realm in this generation. 

    While the old monsters were deliberating, far beyond the sky, billions and billions of miles away… 

    In the Demon Realm, deep within a certain domain was a quaint room.

    A pale young man with cold sweat on his forehead roared out as he woke up like one would from a nightmare.

    “Xiyao, I regarded you as my beloved; why would you kill me?!” 

    He grimaced and cried out in pain.

    His words startled the young demon maid next to him, who was in charge of taking care of him.

    The little maid’s face turned pale with fright. 

    She didn’t know why the Young Master had passed out and then suddenly woke up shouting nonsense.


    ‘Isn’t that the name of Empress Xiyao, who currently rules the Demon Realm?’

    “What nonsense are you shouting, Young Master?! Empress Xiyao’s name is not something you can shout at random. We will be executed if someone hears you.”

    She stammered, terrified. 


    The demon man on the bed suddenly froze, he couldn’t believe what he had just heard.

    He was disoriented, and it took him a while to return to his senses.

    He was the son of Demon Emperor Xuan Yang, one of the six Demon Emperors of the Demon Realm, and Xiyao was the daughter of Demon Emperor Youyue and also his childhood friend.

    ‘Didn’t I drink Xiyao’s poisoned wine and died by her sword?’

    ‘How did I come back to life?’

    ‘And what’s this? Xiyao had already established herself as the Empress?’
