    Chapter 274: The Purpose of the Bait has Been Fulfilled; First Impression of Gu Changge!

    In the midst of the crowd, a young man dressed in dark gold armour stood out in particular, with a slender figure, and overwhelming eyes that flashed with multicoloured radiance.

    When he saw Gu Changge, his expression contorted into one of hatred and anger, but it was quickly suppressed, disappearing into a calm demeanour. 

    At this moment, even those who knew him best wouldn’t recognize that he was once Heavenly Prince, Ying Shuang. 

    Currently, the royal prince had changed his appearance and became just a random cultivator, another nameless Young Genius among many.

    “What’s wrong?” 

    Beside the young man in dark golden armour was an old man in a wide robe, with a clear and refined face, looking like an immortal. 

    Ying Shuang addressed him as Mo Lao. 

    This was the unfathomable old monster who had taken him away after he’d been thrown into a desolate place by the three Great Sacred Realm cultivators, following their battle at the All-Devouring Battlefield. 

    They had told him that someone would come for him in due time. 

    But Ying Shuang naturally didn’t believe it. He always thought that those three Great Sages were people arranged specifically by Gu Changge. 

    Even those words were deliberately spoken by Gu Changge. 

    All of this was to make him take the blame for Gu Changge, making him the scapegoat for his crimes. 

    However, what Ying Shuang didn’t expect… was that someone really would come for him at that moment, introducing himself as part of an ‘organization of Demonic Art Inheritors’, and as a follower of the Demon Lord.

    Just like him, or so they said.

    Among them, this Mo Lao was one of the most terrifying and unfathomable in terms of strength and cultivation.

    Ying Shuang wanted to explain that he was being framed and wasn’t really an Inheritor of Demonic Arts. 

    The real Inheritor was someone else entirely!

    Nonetheless, he also knew that once this was confirmed by them, he would not be able to escape death even with a supreme treasure like the Golden Ancient Bell.

    Today, Heavenly Emperor’s Mountain no longer had a place for him. 

    He had become a person that everyone hated and was like a rat crossing the street, chased and beaten all the way. 

    As soon as his whereabouts were known, countless cultivators would no doubt immediately swarm over to kill him. 

    This made Ying Shuang furious! 

    Towards Gu Changge, this devious enemy who had taken everything away from him…he only felt an endless resentment.

    “Previously, you suffered a great loss at the hands of Gu Changge. But this time, at the True Immortal Academy, it will not be the same.” 

    “With us supporting you from behind, even if it’s Gu Changge, he will have to weigh his options before acting.” 

    Seeing Ying Shuang’s expression, the old man named Mo Lao couldn’t help but smile slightly, as he understood what was going on in his head. 

    In addition to being a follower of the Demon Lord, his other identity was as an elder at the True Immortal Academy. 

    Even the other elders of the True Immortal Academy were unaware of this startling, horrifying fact. 

    Upon hearing this, Ying Shuang also calmed down and nodded: 

    “I understand.” 

    He didn’t know if it was an illusion or not, but he felt as if Gu Changge in front of the Mountain Gate had been observing him. 

    Nevertheless, since he dared to show up at the True Immortal Academy, it showed that he had absolute confidence and wasn’t afraid of being discovered.

    “I heard that Mingkong is coming, so I came here to welcome her.” 

    Gu Changge smiled slightly and answered the question from the white-robed old man earlier. 

    “I see, the relationship between Young Master Changge and Princess Mingkong is really harmonious.” 

    Upon hearing this, the white-robed elder couldn’t help but sigh and laugh. The other cultivators also heard this sentence, and many of the Heavenly Daughters became deeply envious. 

    The one Gu Changge referred to in his words…

    Was undoubtedly his fiancee, Princess Yue Mingkong, the current Empress of the Supreme Immortal Dynasty. 

    “I can’t help it, this woman made me personally come to pick her up, so what can I do but comply?” 

    Despite his helplessness, the smile on Gu Changge’s face remained gentle and graceful, and his tone even carried a hint of indulgence. 

    For some reason, many Young Supreme, especially the Heavenly Daughters, felt sour and envious in their hearts. Had they just eaten dog food without realizing it? 

    They felt a certain jealousy towards Yue Mingkong.

    Is there any other woman in this world worthy of Gu Changge’s affection?

    Of course, Gu Changge’s words were just a casual lie. His main purpose in coming here was actually Ying Shuang, mainly because he perceived his aura at the Mountain Gate. 

    He felt that the so-called Forbidden Demonic Arts’ Organization wasn’t a force formed spontaneously, but rather the gathering together of those following a certain individual presence. 

    As for who the person is, it’s not difficult for Gu Changge to guess that he was the founder of the Forbidden Demonic Arts. Who else could it be? 

    Therefore, he wanted to know what this so-called Forbidden Demonic Organization’s goals and motives were, and what exactly it was they wished to achieve.

    ‘From the attitude of those people from the True Immortal Academy, it looks like that old man should be an elder of the academy, so his cultivation is at least at the Realm of Supreme.’ 

    ‘I guess now it’s equivalent to having a Supreme backing him up?’ 

    Gu Changge’s expression turned somewhat intrigued. 

    He was contemplating whether or not to keep Ying Shuang alive, since his identity was already changed and even the Forbidden Demonic Arts Organisation was lured out.

    Which basically concludes that… Ying Shuang was now worthless.

    However, if Ying Shuang were to die, the Heavenly Emperor might be able to detect it, which would pose a small problem for Gu Changge.

    Therefore, he is now considering how to openly kill Ying Shuang without making it seem that the Forbidden Demonic Arts’ Inheritor was already dead. 

    This would require some special methods. 

    Create a show of the Forbidden Demonic Arts’ Inheritor faking his death and escaping. 

    In addition, Gu Changge planned to let Su Qingge make contact with this organization, however it would require some manipulation. After all, she is this generation’s true Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts. 

    Although Su Qingge was probing his attitude, she had not openly revealed her identity yet.

    Moreover, Gu Changge was even less likely to explain his situation to her, not because he didn’t trust her, but because his secrets couldn’t be easily revealed to another.

    Except for Yue Mingkong, Jiang Chuchu, and Hei Yanyu from the Immortal Ancient Continent, no one else knew that he practised Forbidden Demonic Arts. 

    And all of them, for various reasons, cannot possibly leak this information. 

    ‘Next, Su Qingge will definitely secretly cultivate Forbidden Demonic Arts behind my back. With so many Young Geniuses in the True Immortal Academy, those old fogies may not even notice… she will definitely be unable to resist it.’ 

    ‘This is the perfect breeding ground.’

    As Gu Changge was thinking, outside the Mountain Gate, the clear and melodious cry of a phoenix could be heard!

    In the sky to the East, nine black phoenixes stormed towards the academy, pulling a grand chariot behind them.

    Their speed was immense, rushing through the high sky before descending in a rain of divine fire.

    It was naturally Yue Mingkong who arrived.

    At the same time, in another direction, a huge nine-headed golden lion, as if cast from gold, was also rushing towards the heavens. 

    The sound of chanting echoed, and the light of Buddha shone brightly, appearing very dazzling and bright. 

    A handsome young monk bearing an extremely peculiar pattern between his eyebrows and wearing a moon-white monk robe, sat cross-legged on top with a dignified appearance, his hands clasped firmly together. 

    At that moment, there was a tremendous explosion of commotion beneath the Immortal Academy. 

    Many Young Supremes were stunned, quickly recognizing who it was. 

    “The Nine-Headed Lion? Is this the Golden Cicada Temple’s carriage? The force at the pinnacle of the Buddha Mountain?” 

    “I heard that the Buddha Mountain’s Heir of this generation is named Jin Chan… could this be him? I didn’t expect the secluded Buddha Mountain to actually send their heir here. It seems that this is truly a golden age.” 

    “If it really is him, then they’re definitely not to be underestimated. Jin Chan, the Maitreya Candidate, is said to possess a total of 108 pieces of Divine Buddhist Bones inside his body. And on the day of his birth, a Buddha’s phantom appeared above the Nine Heavens, smiling as he plucked a flower for him alone.” 

    “This Buddhist was said to have gone to the Demon Burial Abyss1Previously named Burying Demon Abyss. and walked out of it alive… who knows if it’s true or false!”

    Gasp! “He actually went to the Demon Burial Abyss, how terrifying…” 

    Many Young Geniuses delved into discussion, shocked by the young monk. 

    The status of Buddha Mountain was not inferior to that of the Human Ancestral Temple or the Heavenly Emperor’s Mountain, and there had not been an heir to the mountain for many generations. 

    This showed the power and mystery of this monk. 

    “He went into the Demon Burial Abyss?” 

    Hearing the discussions nearby, Gu Changge’s eyes narrowed slightly. 

    He was planning to craft a careful plan for the upcoming emergence of the Scarlet Demoness, but he did not expect this generation’s Buddhist Heir to suddenly appear. 


    At this moment, a familiar and slightly surprised voice sounded in his ear. 

    Moonlight steps and a light footfall brought her to his side, as the few elders responsible for checking bone age retreated, not daring to inquire further. 

    She was flawlessly beautiful, with a fairy-like appearance, enhanced by her natural style. A tall, slender figure, with smooth and silky hair, her deep, serene eyes capable of charming everything in the world.

    Like an immortal from inside a painting come to life.

    The dress she wore, sewn from the silk spun by Quasi-Sacred Realm level Silkworms, glimmered a faint radiance, interweaving various rules and laws in between each strand, which indicated its inestimable value. 

    Behind her were also a large number of followers. 

    Turning his head and giving a slight smile, Gu Changge deftly held her small hand, “You’re finally here?” 


    Standing beside him, shoulder to shoulder, Yue Mingkong was somewhat surprised, “Did you wait for me?” 

    She couldn’t believe that Gu Changge would be so good as to wait there so patiently and willingly for her.

    However, seeing him as soon as she arrived at the True Immortal Academy did make her feel a little touched.

    “Of course, why else would I be here? Everyone present can testify for me.” Gu Changge smiled. 

    All the Young Geniuses looked at this scene and secretly rolled their eyes, envious to the extreme. Yet what could one even say when the two were a perfect match? 

    Yue Mingkong still harboured some doubts in her eyes, but then scanned the many Young Geniuses below. 

    She felt somewhat relieved when she didn’t see any suspicious faces. 

    Following that, her gaze landed on Jin Chan, sitting in meditation on top of the Nine-Headed Lion, and she thought to herself:

    ‘This mysterious Buddhist monk just revealed his true appearance in front of the world for the first time.’

    She still remembered, in her past life, when Jin Chan had helped a certain Ancient Freak clear his suspicion of being the Forbidden Demonic Arts’ Inheritor, and ended up gaining the attention of Gu Changge. 

    Later on, the Demon Burial Abyss erupted into chaos, and Jin Chan rushed there. But he had seemingly encountered an unseen danger, and for a long time, there was no news of him. 

    In her past life, Yue Mingkong didn’t know why Gu Changge chose to seal the Demon Burial Abyss. 

    Although it was not completely successful, he achieved great results and successfully delayed it for some time. 

    Recently, due to Gu Changge asking her about some things, she indirectly found out quite a bit about the Demon Burial Abyss from him.

    However, there was one thing she couldn’t figure out in the end. 

    Many of the situations and events happening currently were ones meant to be postponed for at least a few decades or even centuries!

    The emergence of the True Immortal Academy was at least ten or so years earlier than in the past life! 

    And the eruption of the Demon Burial Abyss was even more drastic! 

    “Brother Jin.” 

    At this moment, Gu Changge surprisingly took the initiative to greet the new arrival, Jin Chan, a scene everyone watched with bated breath.

    As a contemporary Buddhist Heir, Jin Chan was very mysterious, but his nine-headed golden lion was at least in the Sacred Realm. 

    So to subdue it, he should at least have the strength of the Sacred Realm.

    Gu Changge’s strength was also unquestionable, as even the elders of the True Immortal Academy treated him with respect. There were also rumours that Gu Changge had even fought against a Great Sacred Realm cultivator and wasn’t backed even a step.

    All of this made him seem even more mysterious and inscrutable. 

    At this moment, when the two of them meet, would there be a big collision? 

    Thinking of this, everyone became excited with anticipation. 

    “Greetings, Young Master Changge.” 

    As Jin Chan landed, he joined his hands together in front of him and bowed in greeting to Gu Changge, his expression cool and collected. 

    However, the nine-headed golden lion behind him instead growled lowly, its fur bristling in fear and apprehension towards Gu Changge. 

    “Oh, and what might this mean?”  

    Gu Changge asked with great interest. 

    “Shanjing is very sensitive to various auras, perhaps he was scared by the presence of Young Master Changge or Princess Mingkong.”  

    Jin Chan replied in an unwavering voice. 

    Shanjing was the name of the nine-headed golden lion who could transform into a human form and be both a servant and a mount.  He possessed an almost intuitive talent for sensing various auras, and could discern good from evil with just one glance. 

    The reason for his disrespectful response was due to the suffocating Qi he felt from Gu Changge, feeling as if he were standing in the middle of a sea, formed from blood and corpses.

    ‘Beneath his refined and gentle appearance lie terrifying methods that can make anyone’s heart shudder.’

    This was Jin Chan’s first impression of Gu Changge. 

    Although he had just arrived, he had heard numerous rumours about Gu Changge, and all of them were almost perfect praises of him. 

    However, now it seemed that these rumours had only scratched the surface. 

    As a descendant of the Gu family, he was not a good person. 

    “Hm. I haven’t done anything, yet it seems Brother Jin Chan has some preconceived notions towards this Gu and Mingkong based on a mere mount’s reaction,” Gu Changge casually laughed. 

    “But after all, a mount is just a mount, how can it compare to us at all?” 

    “I have always heard high praises regarding the mysterious nature of the Buddha Mountain, its various mystical and powerful techniques, and I have been yearning to explore it, although I was never given an opportunity to.”

    “Today, at the Mountain Gate, I happened to meet Brother Jin… It must be fate. This Gu wonder if Brother Jin can teach me something?” 

    His voice was natural and amiable, and his words were not grand, but they still spread throughout the Mountain Gate. 


    For a moment, everyone was shocked. 

    Realizing the meaning behind Gu Changge’s words, was he planning to fight against the mysterious Buddhist disciple Jin Chan in front of them? 


    Instantly, chaos erupted. 

    Everyone’s faces, aside from shock, were filled with intense excitement and anticipation.  

    After all, they had only seen Gu Changge use his skills a handful of times. Thus, many were curious about just how strong he really was, and whether or not he lived up to his name. 

    Now, he was publicly issuing a challenge to the mysterious Buddhist Heir in front of them, a top contender in his own right. 

    It was truly shocking, to the point where even Mingkong was surprised, unable to understand Gu Changge’s intentions.
