    Chapter 272: Was I Being Teased by Him? Not Willing to Look Back!

    At this moment, Gu Changge also planned to get up and leave. His purpose of coming here to find Lao Shi had already been achieved, after all.

    Su Qingge and the others were still waiting for him, not to mention, he had a few plans that needed to be arranged accordingly.

    “Where does Young Master Changge plan on going? I’ve stayed at the True Immortal Academy before, so why don’t I take you there? Young Master Changge probably isn’t too familiar with the area, since you’re a newcomer.” 

    Xiyao spoke again with a smile on her face, exuding a graceful and dignified aura, her tone as natural as ever.

    Gu Changge seemed a little stunned, then shook his head and smiled, “There is no need to trouble the Empress for such a small matter”

    But Empress Xiyao insisted, “And a small matter is no trouble for me.”

    Thus, Gu Changge could only relent.

    “Since that is the case, I will be troubling the Empress to lead the way for this junior. It is truly a great honour.” 

    The scholarly man stood tall, his white clothes seemingly untouched by the dirt of the mundane, as he smiled wryly, looking like an otherworldly deity.

    At this moment, seeing Empress Xiyao standing beside him, made the expressions of the Great Elder and Lao Shi scrunch up strangely. 

    ‘Why does it look so awkward, yet so harmonious at the same time?’

    Following that, Empress Xiyao swiftly flicked her jade hand, sending waves of immortal light forwards, extending far beyond their eyes. Soon after, the path of Immortal Qi rippled as it solidified beneath their feet, leading far, far away from this place.

    A gentle breeze floated by, as both light and shadow changed beneath their feet, the primordial mountains receding into the distance.

    The blue lake shone like emeralds, with the mountains and rivers linked like jade belts, and in the farther distance, chaotic mist shrouded the area. As if in an Immortal Land, the spiritual Qi of heaven and earth was extremely dense.

    Various colours of light intertwined, rushing out from the various mansions of the True Immortal Academy and illuminating the sky. Terrifying energy and vitality burst through the clouds, seemingly able to pierce the sky.

    These were the anomalies caused by the Young Geniuses and monstrous Ancient Freaks practising throughout various areas of the True Immortal Academy.

    Gu Changge and Empress Xiyao stood side by side.

    A faint fragrance drifted into their noses, a scent akin to orchids, giving a feeling of elegance and purity, as if it were a clear spring flowing under a frigid, icy mountain.

    The fragrance was both refreshing and cool, carrying a subtle charm.

    “Why are you silent, Young Master Gu?” 

    Empress Xiyao smiled, and took the initiative to speak, “If you won’t tell me, how will I know where you want to go?”

    At her words, Gu Changge seemed a bit helpless and let out a sigh. “Does the Empress know the phrase ‘To remain chaste even when one has opportunities to be unfaithful’1Chinese idiom for referring to resisting temptation or being faithful.?”

    “Remain chaste even in opportunities to be unfaithful?” Empress Xiyao was a bit stunned. 

    Why did Gu Changge suddenly bring this up?

    But soon, she realized the meaning behind his words, and her expression became more intrigued than ever.

    So, it turned out that Gu Changge was teasing her?

    Gu Changge meant that he was forcing himself to remain calm and silent because he was afraid that he would lose control.

    Why can’t he stay calm?

    Is it because she’s so close to him?

    To be honest, this was indeed the first time in over 6,000 years that Empress Xiyao had been so close to a man. Her former fiance, whom she poisoned, had never been this close to her either.

    Even Empress Xiyao herself didn’t actually know why she’d decided to take the initiative and lead the way for this junior, Gu Changge.

    “It is an idiom used in describing a gentleman. However, although this junior is confident and open-minded, he also knows that he is far from being a gentleman. As such, Empress Xiyao should stop torturing this junior, I implore you.”

    Gu Changge stated calmly.

    This made Empress Xiyao want to laugh, but she held back.

    Was Gu Changge asking her to stay away from him? On the other hand, was he saying that she was very charming?

    It’s quite an interesting excuse. 

    As an Empress and a lady, she naturally enjoyed hearing flattering words.

    “Young Master Changge…”

    She began to speak, but was interrupted by Changge once again. “In the future, please call me Changge directly. Otherwise, it’ll feel like we are maintaining a formal distance between us.”


    Empress Xiyao replied, slightly taken aback. A strange emotion rose in her eyes. 

    She couldn’t quite understand what Gu Changge meant.

    Nonetheless, she looked at him earnestly and nodded in agreement. 

    She suddenly realized that her words and actions had been led by Gu Changge the entire time, and were completely out of her control.

    “Changge, how do you view the situation in the Demon Realm that you mentioned before?” 

    Empress Xiyao abruptly spoke up, asking a question that had been troubling her lately. 

    This was also the reason why she came to the True Immortal Academy: to seek out her mentor and ask for his opinion. 

    Having said that, upon hearing Gu Changge’s unusual opinions, she felt a connection with him and wanted to hear his thoughts.

    “The situation in the Demon Realm?” 

    Gu Changge seemed a bit surprised at the question. 

    He wasn’t an expert in everything, and his previous words were influenced by his past life experiences as a transmigrator.

    2PR/N: Not an expert in everything my f*****g a*s.

    So he just casually made something up.

    He knew nothing about the Demon Realm. 

    But he did remember a tiny detail from his past life3Past life in this sentence means his past life as Demon Lord and not his life on earth. that intrigued him.

    Of course, no abnormalities were leaking through on the surface, as he responded nonchalantly, “The Empress’s concern is probably related to the remnants of the Five Emperors, right?”

    “After all, passing through thousands of years, the Demon Realm has changed drastically. Outside of the Youyue Demon Emperor, the other five emperors’ whereabouts are completely unknown. Not to mention, the forces they left behind are showing signs of a resurgence recently.”

    In fact, he was merely guessing.

    Due to the glimpses of his past life, he did possess some knowledge of the Demon Realm’s affairs from bits and pieces of rumours, albeit limited.

    “Signs of resurgence? Indeed, there have been more occurrences of chaos recently than in any other period.” 

    Empress Xiyao nodded. She did not hide anything about these secret matters in the Demon Realm.

    In her eyes, as the future heir and Young Master of the Ancient Immortal Gu family, Gu Changge was destined to rule over boundless territories. 

    His prestige then would even exceed hers as the Demon Realm Empress!

    “These many signs of resurgence, in the eyes of this junior, should have a reason behind it.”

    Gu Changge explained matter-of-factly.

    “Why not thoroughly investigate which of the remnants from that time are still alive, and sort through those which might pose the greatest of obstacles or harbour the strongest hatred towards you now? The Five Emperors may have prepared contingencies or backhands…”

    “Backhands of the Five Emperors?” 

    Empress Xiyao frowned, “It seems quite possible. However, I’ve almost dealt with the majority of the Emperor Descendants who have caused me problems or bear ill will.”

    At this moment, the system’s prompt suddenly sounded in Gu Changge’s mind.

    [Ding! Triggered a random Mission of Fortune event: The Regressing Son of the Demon Emperor!]

    Upon hearing the prompt, Gu Changge was momentarily taken aback. This seemed to have come out of nowhere. What could be the reason for it? 

    Could it be because of what he had just said to Empress Xiyao? After all, the system had not prompted anything prior to this.

    But this “The Regressor Son of the Demon Emperor” sounded interesting. 

    He immediately thought of the fiancé that Empress Xiyao had poisoned to death six thousand years ago. 

    Were there any other possibilities besides this?

    So the reason for the prompt must be that this returning son of the Demon Emperor was seeking revenge against Empress Xiyao.

    However, his words just now, by some twist of fate, had also inadvertently reminded Empress Xiyao of such a possibility.

    A karmic effect that triggered the random mission.

    Gu Changge’s emotionless features glimmered with fleeting amusement, before quickly returning to normal.

    He glanced over at Empress Xiyao, who was lost in thought, and spoke softly, “Why not investigate whether or not the enemies of the past have been completely eradicated? Some troubles can easily spread like wildfire while one is unaware…”

    He didn’t mention such things as rebirth or regression.

    It would be too obvious, and it might raise unnecessary suspicion. On the other hand, this newly emerged Favoured Son of Heaven seemed to be inseparable from the destiny of the Demon Realm.

    Empress Xiyao nodded thoughtfully.

    — — —

    Later, Gu Changge met up with Su Qingge and the others.

    After bringing him to this place, Empress Xiyao had left first, deeply moved by Gu Changge’s words, and needing to prepare some arrangements.

    “Young Master, who was that woman just now…?”

    Su Qingge was surprised, shocked at her imperial pressure.

    It was a completely different kind of pressure from that of Yue Mingkong, but one equally high in position.

    “She’s Empress Xiyao of the Demon Realm,” Gu Changge replied casually.

    He didn’t know what Empress Xiyao thought about her deceased fiancé, and he wasn’t even in a hurry to find out these things.

    Just like how you let the leeks grow fat before harvesting them.

    This newly emerged Favoured Son of Heaven, if it was just a simple rebirth and revenge story, would not be of much concern. 

    Even someone like the Human Ancestor was easily killed by Gu Changge. 

    So now, letting Empress Xiyao explore the unknown path first, would also reveal what powerful methods this Favoured Son of Heaven has.

    Soon, a senior from the True Immortal Academy arrived and led Gu Changge to the area where the Rankers were located.

    There were different training areas arranged for disciples at each level in the True Immortal Academy: Ranker, Numbered, Inner Gate, and Outer Gate.

    As a Ranker, Gu Changge’s training area was naturally the best, covering an area of nearly ten thousand miles.

    There were numerous ancient mountains and trees on the Divine Island, alongside the immortal mist in the sky, dense spiritual energy pervading everything within its surroundings.

    As far as the eye could see, rows and rows of palaces stretched out in an orderly fashion, resembling a magnificent celestial kingdom, pressing down from above.

    As for the Immortal Birds, Auspicious Beasts, Sacred Medicines and Divine Springs, there were countless of them as well.

    Even among the Ranker, there were few abodes that could compare to his current area.

    Gu Changge allowed his followers to choose their own mansions and room, before quickly disappearing into the void, since he’d just sensed the familiar aura of the scapegoat prince, Ying Shuang, arriving at the academy.

    He had allowed him to leave in their previous encounter with the purpose of using him as bait, in order to draw out the Forbidden Demonic Organization lurking inside the shadows.

    Gu Changge was not very familiar with the origin of this organization. If he could use them, that would be best. If not, then was no need for such a loose thread to exist.

    A hidden organization of such scale might end up hindering his subsequent future plans. And that wasn’t something he wanted to see.

    The news of Gu Changge’s arrival at the True Immortal Academy spread like wildfire. 

    Upon hearing this news, the usually apathetic faces of many young geniuses filled in with a variety of colours.

    Among the younger generation, if someone didn’t know Gu Changge, they would undoubtedly be ridiculed by others, as Gu Changge held a very high position among his peers.

    Even the other top ten Rankers did not dare underestimate him.

    At this moment, in a mansion surrounded by purple mist and divine light, a young man with a strange scar on his forehead, dressed in a purple robe and with hands clasped behind his back, was murmuring to himself:


    “Junior Sister Daoxian, I’ve been waiting for your arrival at the True Immortal Academy.”

    “In my past life, I bowed before the Buddha countless times, but could not get you to turn back to look at me.”

    “You refused to stay and pursue the path of the Great Dao… and I also refused to stay and pursue your footsteps. If the reincarnation of this life is fate, then between you and me, only one of us will survive.”

    “If you refuse to look back at me, it will be the greatest regret of your life.”

    “I wonder if your Immortal Bone is better than mine, or if my Primordial Dao bone is unparalleled in this world!”

    Although his words were spoken softly, they carried a deep and resentful sense of unwillingness and hatred.

    A dense purple aura coiled around his body, erupting like a vast primordial mist, as if was hiding an ancient universe by itself. 

    Embroidered on his robes were countless stars and moons that seemed to be rotating at all times, emitting a thunderous sound that shook the world with a vigorous and terrifying aura.


    Suddenly, a light appeared from the scar on his forehead, followed by the opening of a third eye, causing the space in front of him to become hazy.

    Terrifying scenes appeared within his Divine Eye technique.

    And the pressure exuded by this technique was extremely terrifying, as the primordial violet aura surrounded the world, tracing faint passages through the window of flashing time.

    Fragments of scenes appeared before his eyes.

    — — —

    A dim, dark dungeon.

    Vague and mysterious.

    He could not see it clearly at all.

    He felt an inexplicable tremor in his mind.

    In this dim, damp underground cell, a young woman dressed in green was covered in wounds and chained to the wall. 

    Her expression was stubborn, cold, resolute, and full of hatred…

    In front of her, a young man stood expressionless, holding a dagger and drawing blood, filling a stone bowl with it. He then raised it to his lips and drank it all in one go.

    “The taste of the blood is getting weaker.”

    The man in purple robes only heard this vague and unclear sentence.

    — — —

    Suddenly, his vision darkened and his mind seemed to explode. The crack on his forehead oozed crimson.

    Using the Heavenly Eye of the Dao to glimpse into the future fragments was extremely difficult even with his current ability.

    But he still glimpsed a faint sign.

    “How could this be…”

    The man in purple robes was stunned, his fists clenched, unable to believe what he had seen.

    Why did he catch a glimpse of this fragmented future?

    The woman he loved but could not have, the one he had pursued the path of the Dao for his entire life, was destined to have such a tragic ending in this life?

    He could not accept it.

    Do you know how long he had waited for this life, waiting for her reincarnation?

    He was born with innate intelligence, accompanied by the Primordial Dao Bone, and was also a descendant of the Immortal Dao Sect. He had once surpassed the world and became number one in the Upper Realm.

    And by the peak of his life, he had proclaimed himself a Dao Lord for many eras, simply waiting patiently… for her reincarnation to be born.
