I Am The Fated Villain Chapter 120
120 — Ye Ling, Inheritor of the Demonic Arts; A Vicious Plan!
The night was destined to not be a peaceful one.
An incomparably terrifying event transpired for the White Tiger Family. An earth-shattering roar broke through the Heavens and destroyed the peace and serenity of the innumerable mountains and divine islands inside the White Tiger Family’s territory.
At the same time, a murderous aura surged towards the sky with the intent to drown everyone and everything in its path.
Whoever roared, their rage had soared to heights that couldn’t be estimated.
“Who dares to kill my son?!”
It was Bai Lie’s father, the Tiger Emperor of the White TIger Family with an unfathomable Cultivation Base.
Right now, he couldn’t contain his fury as he received news during his seclusion that Bai Lie’s Spirit Lamp went out!
Bai Lie was the Tiger Emperor’s most beloved son with a talent that couldn’t be matched by anyone else from the White Tiger Family in the last tens of thousands of years. Everyone expected Bai Lie to surpass him, the Tiger Emperor in the future.
The Tiger Emperor spent a lot of time and resources on carefully cultivating Bai Lie, and never expected that he would receive such heart-wrenching news after he sent Bai Lie out for experience not too long ago.
The Tiger Emperor’s rage kept on soaring and soaring.
“Find- Find the one who did it! Who has the guts to kill my son?! I will smash that b*****d into smithereens and cut his corpse into a thousand pieces! I will torture his soul for an eternity and make sure that he can never enter the Cycle of Reincarnation!”
Innumerable members of the White Tiger Family listened to his roars in fright. Their faces paled and their teeth clattered.
The rage of the Tiger Emperor meant an imminent disaster for them that couldn’t be avoided. Who would have thought there would be someone in the world who would dare to kill the Young Master of their White Tiger Family!
This chapter was stolen from original website, please visit novelupdates for newest chapters.
This was no less than giving birth to an unquenchable hatred between the two parties!
Something like this had never happened before — even if the younger generation competed amongst themselves, they made sure to not go too far.
[Immeasurable Heaven, Heavenly Dao Ancient City.]
“The Young Master’s Spirit Lamp went out…how could this be?”
“This isn’t good!”
Bai Lie’s guardian sat paralyzed on the ground with blank eyes and kept repeating the same phrases over and over in fright.
He went all out in his search for Bai Lie last night but couldn’t find him, yet now, someone gave him news that the Young Master’s Spirit Lamp went out and that dumbfounded him.
He couldn’t believe those words!
His entire body went cold the moment he received the news.
Now that the Young Master, Bai Lie, was dead, the White Tiger Family would bring forth a catastrophe in their rage. Unless he finds someone willing to shelter him, he wouldn’t be able to escape death.
No! Death would be an extravagant hope at that time.
By then, life would be worse than death!
Everyone in the Upper Realm knew about the White Tiger Family’s soul enslavement arts that could help them restrain and torture someone to death.
He never expected his ominous feelings from last night to bring about such a cruel result today.
“How could the Young Master die?! He had innumerable means to save his life yet he still died, so what am I going to do now?”
“It must be Ye Ling! It has to be Ye Ling! He must have killed the Young Master!”
Right now, he couldn’t think of anyone other than Ye Ling.
What’s more? All the evidence also pointed towards Ye Ling.
After all, Bai Lie had gone after Ye Ling to settle their accounts, and Yin Mei, the Holy Maiden of the Nine-Tailed Celestial Fox Family, testified about that matter.
When the people from the White Tiger Family came for his throat, he could ask Yin Mei to prove his innocence!
Other than that, he would need to catch Bai Lie’s murderer to have a chance at keeping his life.
The middle-aged man mobilized all of his forces in a hurry to search throughout Immeasurable Heaven as soon as these thoughts crossed his mind.
He didn’t believe Ye Ling could escape far in such a short amount of time.
What’s more? Even if Ye Ling wasn’t the culprit somehow, he still needed to use him as a scapegoat.
“Turtle Bro, what happened? Why am I uneasy? I feel like someone is plotting against me! Who was the man last night?”
“Why did he say he will meet me again? I felt terrified at that time! The aura he released wasn’t something ordinary people can cultivate.”
Ye Ling questioned the turtle in his pendant with a gloomy and uncertain expression.
Right now, he was hiding in one of the many hotels of the Heavenly Dao Ancient City after escaping the pursuit of the black-clothed man from last night. For some reason, the black-clothed man gave up chasing him after he rushed into the city, so he reckoned that he feared exposing himself.
This brought relief to Ye Ling and he rushed to find a place to stay first.
The Ancient Heavenly Emperor of Reincarnation left a relic in the Ancient Immortal Continent of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace, so Ye Ling didn’t plan to leave the Heavenly Dao Ancient City until he got what he wanted.
“I feel that you got yourself sucked into a terrifying plot, brat! The man from last night had a terrifying aura and I think we would better not provoke him. I can’t understand why he came to you…”
“Did you offend someone recently? I suspect that your status as the Heavenly Venerate’s successor is no longer a secret…”
The turtle in the pendant carefully recalled everything they went through in the recent time and then said to Ye Ling.
Ye Ling shook his head and said, “When did I offend someone? It was other people who offended me. Who else is there beside Yue Mingkong and Ye Langtian?”
“The man from last night couldn’t have anything to do with them, right?”
“Could it be that Gu Changge? It’s just that I have never seen him before, and the man’s face was also shrouded by fog last night.”
Ye Ling’s discomfort rose as he thought about last night’s events.
The indifference he saw from the eyes of the man from last night haunted him and he felt that he was nothing more than an ant that could be crushed at any time by the man.
This soured Ye Ling’s heart!
After all, he was someone who had crushed countless mighty enemies on his journey to fame.
He swore to stomp that man from last night to death one day!
“I must go to Big Bro Bai Lie and inform him about what transpired last night. I will do it when I meet him in the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace…”
Ye Ling muttered.
But soon, he frowned and said, “Why is there so much noise outside?”
Ye Ling was stunned when he focused and listened to the voices outside. He was dumbfounded and paralyzed on the spot as if struck by a bolt from the blue.
His face paled and his lips trembled due to disbelief.
“How is it possible?!”
“How did Big Bro Bai Lie die?”
“I didn’t kill him! I didn’t do anything, so how could this be…”
A cold chill went down Ye Ling’s spine and he stood rooted to his spot.
He never expected to hear news about the death of the White Tiger Family’s Young Master!
Worse still?! The people claimed him to be the murderer.
Right now, the mighty masters of the White Tiger Family were looking for him.
How could he have the time to kill Bai Lie when he was busy escaping for his life last night?
He could never do something like that!
“What sin did I commit? Someone’s framing me! I didn’t do it. Turtle Bro, you know that I didn’t do it, right?! You saw how I was escaping for my life last night, right?”
The only one who could save Ye Ling was the turtle in his pendant.
Only the turtle and the old man in black who chased after him last night could testify that he wasn’t the one who killed Bai Lie!
The turtle in the pendant fell into silence after listening to his words.
After a while, he said, “It’s useless to say these words now — what can I do even if I know you are innocent? It’s obvious that someone’s trying to frame you.”
Ye Ling’s face paled as he listened to his words.
“The White Tiger Family must want to apprehend me, but I can’t let them catch me right now. Even if I can prove I didn’t kill Bai Lie, I will end up exposing the fact that I have the inheritance of the Ancient Heavenly Emperor of Reincarnation.”
“The White Tiger Family won’t let me go either way!”
All kinds of thoughts flashed through Ye Ling’s mind and his face paled as he couldn’t think of a method to escape the dead end!
Even if he didn’t kill Bai Lie, he couldn’t show his face, or the White Tiger Family would definitely capture him.
Right now, he couldn’t prove himself innocent even by jumping into the Yellow Springs!
If Gu Changge was here, he would definitely praise Ye Ling for his wit that helped him figure out his fate so fast.
But what could he do even if he figured it out?
The inheritance of the Ancient Heavenly Emperor of Reincarnation made it so that everyone would want to get a piece of Ye Ling if he couldn’t keep the truth under wraps. Even mighty existences who normally didn’t show themselves would want to capture him.
More important than that, he had no way to prove that he didn’t kill Bai Lie!
The White Tiger Family couldn’t give a damn about the fact of the matter — they only wanted to capture Ye Ling by any means. As for whether he was the murderer or not, they would find out after searching his soul.
Rage flared in Ye Ling’s heart and he almost chewed his lips off, “What a vicious plan!”
“It must be that man from last night who’s plotting against me!”
Afterwards, Ye Ling put on a disguise in a hurry.
Right now, he couldn’t appear in the world with his real name and face, after all.
Fortunately, the ancient heavenly emperor of reincarnation’s inheritance held countless life-saving techniques and treasures which could help Ye Ling escape in dire situations.
He could also use the Power of Reincarnation to conceal his origin and aura!
Ye Ling breathed a sigh of relief when he thought about this.
He had experienced countless situations like this where he had to turn a crisis into an opportunity, and the thing that helped him the most during those times was his ability to put on a disguise!
Innumerable members of the White Tiger Family rushed to the Heavenly Dao Ancient City through the various Teleportation Formations present in the city.
Right now, they all stood in front of an altar with countless treasures, bones, and strange totems that they put forth for some sacrificial ritual. In the middle of the altar floated a drop of extremely bright, crimson blood which contained amazing divinity!
“This is a drop of the Young Master’s blood essence. Fortunately, we kept it preserved in the Family all this time, or we wouldn’t know what to do at this time. As long as his body still exists, this drop of blood essence will be able to lead us to him and then we will be able to avenge him!”
One of the White Tiger Family’s members said with a grief-stricken expression on his face.
This ritual required them to pay a great price, but they had no choice but to use it.
Soon, the ritual started and a hazy brilliance appeared from the drop of blood essence and turned into a white tiger that roared towards Heaven and escaped into the Void!
“We can find the Young Master’s body if we follow that phantom!”
With that said, the group of mighty men from the White Tiger Family followed after the phantom and soon arrived in a desolate courtyard in the east of the Heavenly Dao Ancient City.
As soon as the phantom appeared in this desolate courtyard, it burst apart and disappeared with a flash!
“The Young Master’s body is hidden here!”
An old man with a cold face sent the people around him to search every nook and cranny of the courtyard. Soon, they found a damp and desolate dungeon hidden underneath the courtyard!
“What’s a dungeon doing in a place like this?”
When they entered the dungeon, the scene inside stunned them!
Their faces paled and chills went down their spines as they asked, “Why are there so many corpses here?”
“The Young Master’s corpse is also here! Someone swallowed his essence and origin…”
The Elder in-charge of the expedition almost went mad with hatred when he saw Bai Lie’s shriveled corpse among the many present on the scene.
“You dare to kill the Young Master of the White Tiger Family and even devoured his origin…this hatred won’t rest even if the Heavens fall apart!”
He roared towards the sky!
Soon, the entire matter spread to every corner of the Heavenly Dao Ancient City, and before long, other ancient cities also received the news.
The incident triggered a wave of terror and caused an unparalleled earthquake that shook everyone.
All the cultivators trembled in horror!
They heard that the Taboo Inheritance that had disappeared long ago was about to resurface after its inheritor murdered countless young talents from various heritages and races, and devoured their origins and Cultivation Bases.
What’s more? They even dared to murder the Young Master of the White Tiger Family.
Soon, people found similar corpses in other ancient cities as well. There were many corpses in the dungeon that weren’t destroyed and showed that someone had absorbed their origin and Cultivation Base!
A massive earthquake shook the entirety of Immeasurable Heaven!
What’s more? The White Tiger Family even announced that the one who killed their Young Master, Bai Lie, was a man named Ye Ling!
Anyone who provided news regarding Ye Ling could claim a hefty reward!
Soon, Ye Langtian, the Young Master of the Ancient Immortal Ye Family, exposed a lot of information about the man named Ye Ling and even put forth many of his doubts about him.
Before long, Ye Ling’s name as the inheritor of the demonic arts spread all over the world, and almost everyone pledged to hunt him to death.
All the cultivators banded together to look for Ye Ling, but they soon realized that Ye Ling seemed to have disappeared into thin air.
Several days passed in the blink of an eye.
Although an unprecedented event transpired in the outside world, it couldn’t stop the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace from holding the Coronation Ceremony for their next Heir’s ascent.
Countless people from the other heritages rushed to the Palace to witness the event.
The Great Elder appeared in person with a clear complexion and an immortal bearing, and sat at the seat of honor at the highest point.
Below the Great Elder stood a middle-aged man dressed in blue with a gentle expression and a long beard.
He stood there with a straight back. His eyes resembled stars and his snow-white hair fluttered in the wind. He gave off a heroic vibe as he stood there with a hazy brilliance revolving around him.
He looked at Gu Changge, who stood not too far away from him, and said with a gentle smile, “I will leave the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace to you in the future.”
Gu Changge responded to him with a polite smile and said, “It’s still too early for you to say that, Palace Master!”
Next to him stood a group of Elders with unfathomable Cultivation Bases.
Below them stood a group of True Disciples, followed by a group of Inner Disciples arranged in order of the position.
As for the Outer Disciples? They weren’t qualified to approach the main scene and watched the proceedings from a distance.
Right now, all the disciples watched the tall and handsome figure in front of them with envious gazes.
Soon, the series of complicated rituals and whatnot came to an end.
The Great Elder showed a complicated expression and said in a loud voice that spread in every direction, “I hereby confer upon True Disciple Gu Changge the position of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace’s Heir!”
“Bring forth the Heir’s robes!”
As soon as his words fell, an Elder with a smile on his face walked forward and presented the Heir’s robes.
Unlike the other Dao Heritages, the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace didn’t choose a new Heir every few decades or centuries.
The Heir would keep their position as long as the Palace Master didn’t resign from their position and enter seclusion in the depths of the Palace.
In other words, once the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace established a Heir, the Heir’s position wouldn’t change for at least a thousand years.
The massive Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace would be under the Heir’s complete control in the future!
The robes of the Heir looked exquisite and gorgeous, and it seemed as if they were embroidered with millions of stars from the Ninth Heaven. Divine lights flowed through the threads of the article, and dazzling immortal rays radiated from it in every direction.
Gu Changge looked even more handsome after he put on the Heir’s robes. His already exquisite features appeared even sharper.
The hearts of countless female disciples and Elders fluttered as they watched the handsome youth in front of them!
Hi there, VILFIC here! 👋
This here is the much-coveted announcement that I actually put in Chapter 118 but then overwrote it somehow when I updated the chapter with its edited version. Either way, I would like to clarify some matters here, and they are as follows,
- This is the last chapter for March and that’s why it’s not split up in two parts.
- All chapters after this are going to be split in two parts (even the last chapter for the month) if they have more than two thousand words.
- I am not going to give you any guarantees regarding any release for April or the months after that — you might get one chapter or you might get one hundred (let the man dream), it’s all up to fate.
- There’s no guaranteed release schedule either, so you get a chapter when you get a chapter.
- If anyone knows how to get Isekai’ed to another realm where I can use my laptop and internet to connect to the internet of this world, let me know. I will guarantee a consistent release rate and schedule if I can somehow go to another world and be rid of all of my priorities and obligations from this life. You will also have my utmost gratitude. BTW, I prefer a technologically advanced world where humans only eat, sleep, and repeat and the One-World Government provides all the basic requirements for living: food, shelter, and clothing (not all that important). I don’t mind if A.I is the overlord there and puts a chip down my throat or a collar around it. As long as I am not made to do anything, I am good.
- My schedule is going to get worse so I might not be able to respond to your comments, etc. You can join the Discord server and ping me if there’s anything. I won’t respond immediately, but I will know that I have to respond.
That’s all, enjoy the journey.
