    Chapter 278: Gu Xianer’s Initiative; Touch Like a Dragonfly Skimming over Water!


    A divine glow bloomed and the void cracked, revealing a terrifying rift. The power of this palm strike was unmatched. 

    In the Tianchen Realm, Gu Changge harvested the opportunities of the Human Ancestor and fused them with the Pure Worldly Lotus, causing every cell to burst with the mighty power of the world. 

    Six hundred trillion cells were like a resurrected ancient realm. 

    The power was truly shocking and awe-inspiring.

    Gu Changge’s palm descended like that of a heavenly emperor, accompanied by colourful divine light, covering Song Fan and his followers.


    In the next moment, fresh blood spurted out and a strong smell of blood filled the air. 

    The three companions didn’t even have time to scream before they were instantly crushed, both body and spirit. 

    “These people spoke such slanderous words before they died. They deserve their fate. Ziyang Tianjun even kindly pleaded for them…” 

    “In this Gu’s opinion, they were not worth it.” 

    “However, I believe some people will learn their lesson from today onwards. If they dare to approach Xian’er even half a step closer, the fate of these people will serve as a warning.” 

    Gu Changge stood with folded arms, showing a hint of interest as he glanced at Ziyang Tianjun. Then, he lightly chuckled and spoke in a casual tone. 

    To him, killing a few Young Geniuses, especially ones who were just Numbered disciples, was like crushing a few ants. He didn’t really care. 

    His words were not loud, seemingly intended for the surrounding cultivators who were watching. 

    There, towering peaks stood, one after another, incredibly tall, with colourful and white mists flowing like a sacred fairyland. 

    Many Young Geniuses rushed over when they heard the commotion, witnessing firsthand what was happening in this place. 

    At this moment, many people felt a chill down their spine when they heard the words of Gu Changge. 

    The terrifying cold swept through their bodies, making them shudder in fear. 

    This was the terrifying power of Gu Changge, even in the True Immortal Academy, he was still so dominant. 

    As a fellow disciple of the True Immortal Academy, he showed no mercy and was decisive in his actions. 

    Moreover, they knew that the elders of the academy must have noticed what happened just now, but no one dared to show up and stop Gu Changge. 

    What does this mean? 

    It means that even the elders of the True Immortal Academy were extremely wary of Gu Changge and unwilling to provoke him easily. 

    For the few disciples who were crushed to death, they could only say they had bad luck. They offended the wrong person, and that person happened to be Gu Changge. 

    It’s like the saying “The longer the thread, the higher the kite flies” – they picked the wrong person to mess with. 

    They witnessed what happened just now very clearly. They were not sure whether there was any arrangement or order from Ziyang Tianjun, but one thing was for sure: Gu Changge didn’t give him any face. This incident will quickly spread among the disciples. 

    Ziyang Tianjun’s reputation has been damaged, and he may have conflicts with Gu Changge in the future. 

    As fellow Ranked disciples, Ziyang Tianjun’s actions today were a clear indication of his fear of Gu Changge. 

    It is very likely that Ziyang Tianjun will not be able to hold his head up among the Ranked disciples for a while. 

    Although Jin Chan was also afraid of Gu Changge, at least he fought against him directly and fell only after a tough fight. 

    “You’re being too reckless. How could you just kill someone in the True Immortal Academy?”  

    Gu Xian’er was also taken aback by Gu Changge’s decisive actions. She was worried that he might get into trouble, especially since this was happening in the True Immortal Academy.

    If the forces behind these disciples or the elders took action, wouldn’t Gu Changge be in trouble?

    “Shut up.”

    “I will settle accounts with you later.”

    At these words, Gu Changge’s expression turned cold. He gave her a glance but showed no trace of kindness in his tone. 


    Gu Xian’er was flustered, but she felt a little wronged in her heart.

    She only wanted to show her concern for him, so why was he picking on her? 

    What kind of mess had she gotten herself into? 

    “Thank you, Young Master Changge, for taking care of these scumbags of the True Immortal Academy for me.”

    “Otherwise, I would have to take care of them myself and rid the True Immortal Academy of this shameful bunch.” 

    Finally, Ziyang Tianjun spoke, his face even bearing a hint of a smile, as if he did not care about what Gu Changge had just said. 

    Of course, Ziyang Tianjun knew that these words were actually directed at him by Gu Changge. 

    Gu Changge had already seen through his tricks and warned him not to get too close to Gu Xian’er. 

    But he did not care. When he saw the shattered future vision, he was destined to eventually stand on the opposite side of Gu Changge and become his enemy. 

    Gu Changge smiled lightly, “If that’s what Ziyang Tianjun thinks, then this Gu will also feel relieved..” 

    Soon, peace was restored in the area. 

    Although Ziyang Tianjun was feeling quite gloomy inside, he was skilled at concealing his emotions. 

    He had gained a deeper understanding of Gu Changge’s strength and indifference. 

    No matter what, Gu Changge’s complete disregard for his face today would soon spread.

    This caused Ziyang Tianjun to lose face, and made him even more afraid of Gu Changge.

    Especially now that Gu Xian’er seemed to have complete trust in Gu Changge and didn’t have any guard up against him. 

    The thought of Gu Xian’er’s tragic future only weighed heavily on Ziyang Tianjun’s heart. 

    In a flash of purple light, he didn’t hesitate at all and disappeared with a single step, fleeing into the depths of the academy. 

    — — —

    In the depths of the academy, amidst magnificent buildings and structures, a divine island hovered in mid-air, shrouded by chaotic energy. 

    Many elders witnessed what had just happened, and for a while, everyone had a different expression on their faces. 

    “Although Ziyang Tianjun was once the number one in the Upper Realm, now he is also afraid of Gu Changge. Today’s incident seems to be rational, but it is actually restrained. This state of mind can only be said to be worthy of being a descendant of the Purple Palace.” 

    “If it were someone else, I’m afraid they would have rushed up and fought Gu Changge to the death at the first opportunity.” 

    “Speaking of which, Gu Changge is so dominant and sharp, it seems that he is prepared to suppress all the geniuses of this generation. I wonder if there is anyone among his peers who can compete with him?” 

    “After the defeat of Buddhist Jin Chan, there has been no news from him. He came to the True Immortal Academy, seemingly to look for the Sacred Buddha’s Robe… there were indeed rumours that the Sacred Buddha’s Robe was in the True Immortal Academy.” 

    “But the exact location… no one knows.” 

    During their conversation, they didn’t mention the few disciples who were suppressed and killed by Changge just now, as they didn’t care about them at all. After all, the True Immortal Academy was a place of survival of the fittest. 

    — — —

    “Gu Changge, why were you so fierce towards me just now?” 

    Colourful clouds drifted and white mist enveloped the surroundings. 

    On the towering mountain peak, Gu Xian’er stared at Gu Changge, who was silent and indifferent, with some dissatisfaction. 

    She didn’t know why Gu Changge was so angry when she didn’t do anything wrong. 

    She was very puzzled and didn’t know why, after entering the mountain gate, she was bullied by a few disciples. 

    Then, Ziyang Tianjun appeared and helped her resolve this trouble. 

    She could now see that it was all deliberately arranged by Ziyang Tianjun. 

    It was a self-directed and self-acted “hero saves the beauty” show. 

    Could it be that Ziyang Tianjun really has some sort of feelings for her? Or is he trying to use her to scheme against Gu Changge? 

    Although Gu Changge helped her vent her anger, he shouldn’t ignore her and leave her hanging like this. And he’s not saying anything. 

    It’s like he only came here to escort her in and that’s it. 

    “Gu Xian’er, are you really stupid or just pretending to be?” 

    Gu Changge finally stopped and spoke, but his tone was very cold, which made Gu Xian’er a little stunned and scared. 

    “Gu Changge, don’t think you can continue to bully me and call me stupid.” 

    However, Gu Xian’er still had the courage to retort. 

    “It seems that you are really stupid. What happened to your cleverness from before?” 

    Gu Changge turned her head and looked at her, asking calmly, “If I didn’t come today, would you be grateful to Ziyang Tianjun and thank him for saving you?” 

    “Gu Changge, what are you thinking? How can that be possible?” 

    “Do you think I didn’t see it? This was arranged by Ziyang Tianjun, although I don’t know his purpose…” 

    Upon hearing this, Gu Xian’er quickly retorted, feeling that Gu Changge was underestimating her and thought she couldn’t even see through such an obvious act. 

    “Oh? Since you’ve figured it out, why did you let those guys go?” 

    Gu Changge asked calmly, “This is the True Immortal Academy, not a place for you to show mercy.” 

    “But aren’t you here?” 

    Gu Xian’er muttered under her breath, but seeing that Gu Changge’s expression was off, she quickly changed the subject and asked, “How did you know I came to the True Immortal Academy?” 

    “And also, why did Ziyang Tianjun arrange this act? I haven’t even met him before.” 

    This was also something she couldn’t figure out. 

    “How I knew you came to the True Immortal Academy is not important.” 

    “Just remember, that Ziyang Tianjun doesn’t have good intentions towards you. Maybe he just wants to gain your favour and enter the Gu family as a son-in-law or something.” 

    Gu Changge shook his head and said, his expression had already returned to calm.

    Gu Changge was worried that Gu Xian’er was too foolish to even see through Ziyang Tianjun’s small tricks. 

    But since Gu Xian’er had said that, Gu Changge couldn’t be bothered to say anything else. He planned to send someone to investigate the Ziyang Tianjun later on. 

    Did he really just stage a hero saving a damsel in distress for no reason? 

    Was he really just after Gu Xian’er’s body or did he have other motives? 

    On Ziyang Tianjun, he smelled the scent of a Favoured Son of Heaven. However, the system did not mention it. 

    “Hmph, don’t talk nonsense, Gu Changge. What do you mean by becoming a son-in-law? I’m not interested in that kind of guy.” 

    “Just forget it. I know you were just worried about me when you were angry just now…” 

    Upon hearing Gu Changge’s indifferent tone, Gu Xian’er felt uneasy for some reason. 

    What did he mean by gaining her favour and becoming a son-in-law of the Gu family so easily? 

    Was that how he saw her? Was it so easy for her to trust others? 

    Besides, how could she possibly be interested in Ziyang Tianjun? 

    Now, Gu Xian’er felt only confusion and disgust towards him, wanting to know what kind of game Ziyang Tianjun was playing. 

    “Gu Xian’er, you’re quite good at being self-absorbed. Ziyang Tianjun just wants to use you to achieve some goals of his. Think carefully, that guy is likely trying to use you to deal with me…” 

    “Are you really so deluded to think that I did it for you?” 

    Hearing this, Gu Changge just sneered and didn’t take it seriously. 

    “Gu Changge… you b*****d…” 

    Gu Xian’er was taken aback, not expecting Gu Changge to still be so stubborn at this moment. 

    Her voice became dissatisfied, “When will you change that arrogant personality of yours?” 

    Clearly, he was just showing concern for her, yet he had to come up with so many reasons, afraid of being exposed of his true intentions. 

    This guy, why was he so excessive? 

    “I haven’t seen you in a long time, and you seem to have grown more arrogant, do you want to be beaten…”

    Although Gu Changge’s expression remained calm, he didn’t finish his sentence. 

    Suddenly, he saw that Gu Xian’er’s face was a bit angry, and he didn’t know where she got the courage, but she suddenly tiptoed forward and approached him. 


    Gu Changge only felt a light touch on his lips, as if a dragonfly had skimmed over them. It was clear, cool, soft, and sweet. 

    Even with his personality, he couldn’t help but be slightly stunned at this moment. 

    “This silly girl…” 

    Afterwards, Gu Changge sighed softly and looked at Gu Xian’er’s blushing face as she ran away. He didn’t know what to say for a while. 

    To be honest, today’s events were unexpected for him. 

    In his view, Gu Xian’er’s actions were already very bold and proactive. 

    “Should I change my attitude towards this girl? But if I treat her well, she’ll just ride on top of my head…” 

    Many thoughts flashed through Gu Changge’s mind, but he quickly regained his composure. 

    However, soon a coldness flickered in his eyes. 

    “Ziyang Tianjun, you dare to covet my things.” 

    — — —-

    “It’s over, it’s over…” 

    “Gu Xian’er, how did you suddenly become so stupid? What did you do just now?” 

    On the other side, Gu Xian’er, who had already turned into a divine light and appeared on another mountain peak, looked like a cooked prawn. 

    She was very flustered and nervous, not knowing how to face Gu Changge next. 

    She didn’t know what had come over her just now. Where did she find the courage to do such a thing? 

    It was like a sudden impulse. 

    Realising what had happened, Gu Xian’er’s mind went blank, and she didn’t have time to react. 

    “Ugh, that despicable guy is probably laughing at me now. I’m so embarrassed, I don’t know how to face him in the future.” 

    Gu Xian’er couldn’t help but feel angry and helpless when she thought of Gu Changge’s annoying smirk. 

    “Forget it, I’ll just avoid him for now. I don’t want him to catch me and make fun of me.” 

    She was very troubled, full of regret, and then she moved towards the courtyard where the Great Elder was. 

    When she came earlier, Gu Xian’er knew that the Great Elder was now in the True Immortal Academy, so she had to find him first. 

    At this moment, deep within the True Immortal Academy, there was no calmness. 

    Mountains after mountain, some entirely black, some blooming with scarlet radiance, some shrouded in purple mist, and some gleaming with green light. Spiritual energy pervaded the heavens and earth, forming a great waterfall, ancient trees reaching the sky, and towering peaks, like a realm of immortals. 

    Here, there was a strange stone shrouded in various colours of radiance, trembling lightly, and emitting countless divine lights and auspicious colours. 

    The strange stone was as tall as half a person, with intertwined Great Dao inscriptions on its surface, and many sealed runes, appearing extremely dazzling. 

    The many exotic beasts and auspicious birds below all prostrated themselves, remaining extremely silent. 

    “After calculating the time, it should be time for it to emerge. We have waited for this moment for too long!” 

    “Yes, this Ninth Heavens Mysterious Stone, which I have nurtured for countless years in the True Immortal Academy, should emerge today.” 

    “It’s not easy! I just don’t know what kind of monster will appear. Will it be the descendant of a True Immortal?” 

    Many ancient beings with chaotic aura wrapped around them, with extraordinary blood and ancient clothing style, were excitedly staring at the strange stone in front of them. 

    Their eyes were like staring at some peerless immortal treasure. 

    “In this golden era, how can this mysterious stone of the True Immortal Academy be left behind”

    They were looking forward to it and staring at it, not blinking at all, afraid of missing anything. 


    At this moment, the strange stone seemed to sense someone observing it from outside, and even more brilliant radiance surged, intending to actively break through the seal on top! 

    The ancient runes on the stone came to life and began to dance, floating in the void with an astonishing fairy aura. 

    The area seemed to have turned into a land of immortals. 

    “Quick, look!” 

    “It’s about to break the seal and come out!”

    The old antiques were shocked but even more excited and expectant. 

    On the high mountains outside this area, there were also many figures appearing, looking from afar, all of them surprised to hear that this strange stone was about to emerge. 

    The origin of this stone in the True Immortal Academy can be traced back to a long time ago. 

    Therefore, many people are aware of its existence. 

    “Could it be the offspring of the True Immortal that fell from the Ninth Heavens?” 

    A tall and slender phoenix woman with wings on her back appeared on top of a mountain, with various runes flashing in her eyes, evolving into different scenes. 

    It seemed like she was trying to see through the stone. 

    “What is your opinion, Lady Huang Nu?” 

    Beside her, a divine warrior who controlled a four-spirit chariot appeared, dressed in golden armour. 

    Even his eyes were multi-coloured, and he had five-coloured divine blood flowing through his body, with a majestic and shocking aura. 

    He looked like a young god, and he was the son of the Emperor of Phoenix Mountain. 

    Huang Nu glanced at him and shook her head, “I can’t see through it, it’s very mysterious.” 

    “Rumours say that Lady Huang Nu is the reincarnation of an Immortal Phoenix, yet there are still things you can’t see through?” the Emperor’s son smiled and asked. 

    Upon hearing this, Huang Nu remained silent and didn’t bother to respond to him. 


    At this moment, a golden passage suddenly appeared in the sky, and a seven or eight-year-old girl in white walked out of it. 

    She was pure and untainted, with black hair that was very soft. Her eyes were like black gems, but with a starry and profound depth. 

    Seeing this white-clad girl, many old relics’ faces changed, and they hurriedly showed respect, “Greetings to the Star Ancestor!” 

    “Could it be that she is…” 

    Many Young Geniuses were also shocked. In the first instant, they recognized the identity of this white-clad girl. 

    Although she looked very young, her age was actually incredibly ancient.
