A novel by the same Author of Reaper of the Drifting Moon and the same universe:
I Am the Fated Villain – Chapter 331, the Truth Was the True Immortals Had Left; Gu Xianer Took the Initiative
“Right now, Zhi Yang should be contacting someone influential from Purple Mansion…” There was a faint smile on Gu Changge’s face as he descended, heading towards the vast mountain range before him. When he fought against Qin Wuya, he left behind an aura on Qin Wuya. Naturally, it wasn’t a rune nor a mark, otherwise it would have been discovered too easily by Qin Wuya.
Gu Changge only needed to track down the aura and he could easily find Qin Wuya’s whereabouts. Qin Wuya thought he was one step ahead but Gu Changge was actually ten steps ahead of him.
Gu Changge even knew all about Qin Wuya’s movements the past couple days; he was just too lazy to chase him down. Doing so before killing Sky King Zhi Yang would only alert the snakes in the grass.
[“If some expert from Purple Mansion is going to get involved, I should also contact the Gu Family. It’ll be an opportunity to know which side each faction stands.] Gu Changge traversed the mountain range with a calm look without a hint of anxiousness.
He didn’t doubt Purple Mansion attached great importance to Sky King Zhi Yang. After all, that man was someone who reincarnated from that Forbidden Epoch. He was extremely intelligent, and possessed the extremely rare Chaos Dao Bone. In fact, if Purple Mansion intends to rise up, Sky King Zhi Yang was indispensable to them.
Although the Purple Mansion was known as an Immortal Sect, since their creation, they had not produced a single Immortal. They still possessed an unfathomable foundation that would shock the world. However, with not a single Immortal, they were still lacking. Thus, from Sky King Zhi Yang, they saw the hope that an Immortal could be produced, which would raise Purple Mansion up to the next level.
Thus, even knowing they would offend numerous forces, Purple Mansion would still choose to protect Zhi Yang and did not hesitate to place the current Purple Mansion Sect Master under house arrest. From these actions, Zhi Yang’s importance to the Purple Mansion was obvious.
[Well, not like any of that matters. If Purple Mansion still insists on opposing me, I can just leave it to the Immortal Gu Family. Well, if all else fails, I still have my own guardian, who is tasked to protect me. It’s just that I have been using my taboo Demonic Arts, and couldn’t let others find out about it, so I made her stay back in the Gu Family. But, I can still call on her when needed.]
This time, Gu Changge planned on using Purple Mansion as a whetstone for sharpening his knife.
He already sent the orders to the Celestial Ancient Races that had been cultivating in the Celestial Ancient Continent. They could tear open space and attack Purple Mansion whenever they pleased.
After all, Purple Mansion could neither be considered extraordinarily powerful or exceptionally weak. However, as a whetstone, they were just the right fit.
[Immortal Families and Immortal Sects. In the Upper Realm, those with such titles are all forces with long histories. However, the hidden powers amongst them differed greatly. They either truly had the strength of an Immortal or they were weaker than an Immortal. Nonetheless, there is a huge difference between the two, one which is extremely hard to describe.]
During this period of time, Gu Changge had consulted with many ancient books, trying to make sense of the fuzzy memories he recalled. Thus, he has a better understanding of the different time periods.
The period where the Demon Lord destroyed the world was placed as a marker, in other words, the Forbidden Epoch was a marker. Before that, it was the Immortal epoch. Before this epoch, there were real, unfettered Immortals roaming about freely. It had to be said that the Ancient Reincarnation Supreme Being and the Ancient Celestial Races had stemmed from this era. However, buried in the long flow of time after the Forbidden Epoch.
Since none dared to mention it; such thoughts and knowledge were cut off at the root. Since it could not even be recorded on paper, it did not exist in the world. That was up till the present. In fact, if there were thoughts of the Forbidden Epoch, the desire to uncover what happened back then, there would be unknown consequences.
After the Forbidden Epoch, there were no more Immortals, even the forces that had survived the Forbidden Epoch could not produce any Immortals.
Some say the True Immortals were all extinguished during the Forbidden Epoch. The Buddha wept over the death of the Immortals, that the Heavenly Way was damaged and everyone was unable to reach Immortality. Thus, if the Heavenly way was no repaired, it was impossible for someone to become an Immortal.
This was what most believed.
However, the truth, Gu Changge understood it in another way. After the Forbidden Epoch, the True Immortals in this world, for some reasons, must have gone to another world. It was similar to the ascension that he knew of in his past life.
For the time being, he refers to this other world as the Immortal World. From what he knew, the Immortal Gu Family was actually deeply related to that world. After all, the creation of the Immortal Gu Family was even before the Immortal Epoch.
It was because of this that Gu Changge could consult those ancient books.
Other than the Immortal Gu Family, the Immortal Wang Family also had many connections to that world. Their Ancestors were Immortals, while their inheritors stayed behind in this world.
The current Upper Realm, at most, had Remnant Immortals. There were no longer any more True Immortals. Even if a True Immortal was born, they wouldn’t stay here for long. After all, forces which could claim the label as Immortal Sects or Immortal Families, hardly had any traces of the inheritances those True Immortals left behind.
The lack of a True Immortal could not be made more apparent after the appearance of the Eternal Overcast, which shook the entire Upper Realm. The need to establish the Immortal Academy and cultivate a True Immortal was the proof.
[No matter what, the things that happened during the Forbidden Epoch definitely have something to do with me… From how things are progressing, I’ll be able to recover more memories from Chan Hongyi.] Gu Changge’s train of thoughts quickly picked up as his eyes became deeper.
During this period of time, he began recovering more and more of his memory. It was like revealing the depth of a boundless sea, or like an iceberg that was slowly coming to the surface.
Some things had an answer now. Like, Chan Hongyi, which was the name of the demoness in red.
“Eldest Senior Brother, you’re here. Are you all right? You weren’t noticed by Gu Changge, right?”
Outside the remains, Zhi Yang saw Qin Wuya heading towards him in the distance. Pleasantly surprised, he rushed over and asked in concern, “The days you weren’t here really had me worried. I was afraid Gu Changge would find me.”
From Qin Wuya’s expression, he knew Gu Xianer had successfully been lured over so he tacitly pretended not to know anything.
“I’m all right, my injuries are nearly recovered. Gu Changge had not discovered me so far. Did anyone else come during this period of time?” Nodding, Qin Wuya glanced at Zhi Yang and asked.
Zhi Yang shook his head, “None, it’s been pretty quiet. Besides the young prodigies passing through, there are no other movements.” Afterward, the two people exchanged greetings, with an appearance as if they haven’t seen each other in ages. They inquired about each other’s experiences like they were extremely concerned about the other.
Gu Xianer, who had been following behind the entire time, was hiding out of sight. Her icy eyes stared at the two people’s movements, not missing a single word of their conversation. However, soon after, she furrowed her brows, seeming to discover that something was amiss. As the two people talked, they often brought up Gu Changge. Eight out of ten sentences they said, Gu Changge’s name would be mentioned.
From the sounds of it, they were discussing what a scary, scheming person Gu Changge was, and how he played everyone while hiding his tails perfectly, when, in fact, he was the real Successor of Demonic Arts.
Listening carefully, it was like the two were explaining for her sake, as if to tell her Gu Changge and the Successor of Demonic Arts were, in fact, one and the same person. It was like they were laying out all the suspicious points for her.
After processing all this, Gu Xianer’s eyes chilled, emitting a murderous, bone-chilling aura. She already saw through everything. [So, Qin Wuya lured me over on purpose. And the conversation between the two is prepared specifically for me to hear.]
“Shut up!” At this moment, Gu Xianer snarled frigidly, her voice as cold as frost, as she emitted a terrifyingly cold aura. She had come out from her hiding spot, in the void, and walked forward.
At the same time, appearing in her delicate hand was a translucent and sparkling jade sword, its tip looking sharp enough to split anything apart.
“You’re…Gu Changge’s cousin?” Seeing Gu Xianer taking the initiative to show herself, Zhi Yang and Qin Wuya were both surprised. This time, it was not fake but genuine shock.
They didn’t think Gu Xianer would show herself at this time. In their plan, they would discover Gu Xianer’s traces later and realize she overheard their conversation before explaining everything to her sincerely. And if Gu Xianer did not believe them, they could only fight against her then.
However, now that Gu Xianer came out on her own, it had completely disrupted their plans. Even so, Zhi Yang and Qin Wuya quickly recovered themselves. They quickly made vigilant and hostile expressions while staring at Gu Xianer.
