119 — Devouring the Prey; Fragrance of a Vixen!
TL: VILFIC | ED: davidebic
“Why are you so strong?! How is this possible…”
Bai Lie questioned in desperation with an ashen face.
He was taller and burlier than Gu Changge, yet Gu Changge lifted him by one hand like he was lifting a powerless chicken, and this further pushed Bai Lie down the abyss of despair.
Gu Changge obliterated his mightiest life-saving treasure with incomparable ease!
He could tell that the monstrous halberd in Gu Changge’s hand surpassed the Sacred Rank…no, it had to be a bloodthirsty weapon of the Supreme Rank, or it wouldn’t have such might that could cut through his golden paper like a hot knife cutting through mud.
“What a pity that you wasted such a good treasure (the golden paper)…”
Gu Changge said with a shake of his head, but Bai Lie couldn’t see any trace of pity from his expression.
Right then, Bai Lie screamed in horror as extreme terror covered his visage.
Gu Changge, on the other hand, showed a calm expression without the slightest turbulence in his gaze.
Before Bai Lie could utter another word, the flower in his chest burst with all kinds of divine rays of light that merged to form a pitch-black [Great Dao Treasured Bottle].
Right after that, a strong aura burst forth from the flower, and the golden luster of the [Ultimate Golden Destructive Ability] appeared in front of Gu Changge. At the same time, a black hole appeared in Gu Changge’s palm and devoured the golden light so he could refine and absorb it.
The night wind blew, and Gu Changge stood on his spot with his eyes closed. After a while, he muttered, “The taste of the [Ultimate Golden Destructive Ability] isn’t bad; it contains countless changes! No wonder it’s ranked among the top three in the Upper Realm.”
[1: changes here refers to the ways the ability can be used through manipulation.]
“Congratulations for obtaining the [Ultimate Golden Destructive Ability], Master!”
Yin Mei congratulated him with respect in a hurry.
Seeing the scene before her made her surrender her heart to Gu Changge even more. The fear obliterated any remaining thoughts of resistance and betrayal, and she dared not entertain such thoughts anymore.
Gu Changge could exterminate her with ease.
Gu Changge nodded to her in response and then looked at the [Eight Desolate Demon Halberd] in his hand and said with a smile, “I didn’t let you kill him because leaving scars (made by the halberd) on his body wouldn’t be good.”
Gu Changge could feel the excitement and joy of the [Eight Desolate Demon Halberd]. After all, it finally got to make a move after Gu Changge threw it in the System’s Weapon Space for a long time.
He felt pity over the fact that it only got to destroy a piece of golden paper that couldn’t even make it exert its true might.
The feeling of not being able to go all out almost made it fall into depression.
Adding to that depression was the fact that Gu Changge kept it locked in the Weapon Space all the time, so it couldn’t help but feel aggrieved over being left out of all the fun.
Gu Changge comforted it for a while and then threw it back into the Weapon Space.
“Master, what should I do with Bai Lie’s body?”
After looking at Bai Lie’s corpse, Yin Mei asked, as she was the one responsible for disposing of the remains of Gu Changge’s ‘cultivation resources.’
“You can’t destroy Bai Lie’s body.”
Gu Changge said with a smile as he removed the concealment formation shrouding their surroundings. The silver moonlight fell on his face again and increased the sinisterness of his expression.
The only ones who knew about today’s events were Yin Mei and him.
As for Bai Lie’s body? Gu Changge couldn’t let anyone destroy it, or he won’t be able to pin the blame on Ye Ling’s head.
As long as the eyes of the old monsters behind him (Bai Lie) didn’t give out, there would be some among them who would be able to tell how Bai Lie died.
At that time, even if he didn’t wish to pin the blame on Ye Ling’s head, Ye Ling wouldn’t be able to escape his fate.
Gu Changge pondered for a while and then put Bai Lie’s body inside his inner world before leaving the place.
Bai Lie’s corpse still had some use left.
Yin Mei said her farewell and then cleared all the traces on the scene. She was already used to this kind of work, after all.
Afterwards, she followed Gu Changge’s instructions and stayed in the courtyard waiting for what was to come.
Since Bai Lie disappeared into thin air, some of his followers and relatives will definitely come all the way here to question her.
That will be the moment for her to put her acting skills to use.
Unless someone looked through her soul and memories, they wouldn’t be able to find the truth.
Yin Mei wasn’t worried about someone going that far, however. She held no doubt in Gu Changge’s commands and arrangements.
What’s more? She was the Holy Maiden of the Nine-Tailed Celestial Fox Family, so who would dare to search her soul without concrete evidence against her?
Yin Mei sat in wait with a calm and natural expression on her face and gently combed her nine snow-white, fluffy foxtails, which shimmered under the silver moonlight.
She had recently realized that although Gu Changge didn’t hold much interest in her, he was pretty interested in her tails.
Every time she met up with him, he would take one in his hands and play with it for a while.
At first, his actions made her feel somewhat shy and awkward, but now, she was used to his antics.
Before long, Yin Mei sensed several mighty auras rushing towards her courtyard from outside — she could see several rays of divine lights fly over in her direction.
A strange smile showed on her lovely visage for a moment, but it soon disappeared, and she pretended to be disturbed by the sudden appearance of the newcomers.
“I pay my respects, Your Excellency, Yin Mei! Excuse me, but have you seen my Young Master?”
Soon, Yin Mei saw Bai Lie’s followers and protector — who usually hid in the dark — appear in front of her and question her.
The man turned out to be a Sacred Realm Master.
The middle-aged man had a burly build with the apparent characteristics of the White Tiger Family and radiated a mighty aura.
Yin Mei couldn’t help but show a hint of doubt on her face in response to his question and said, “Bai Lie did come to me, but he later left saying that he had to settle an account with Ye Ling…”
“It turns out that our Young Master personally went to deal with Ye Ling…”
The middle-aged man of the White Tiger Family frowned after he heard her words.
He was well aware of Yin Mei’s temperament since Bai Lie met up with her multiple times in the past, so he held her in high regard. Yin Mei was a gentle woman with a well-bred and respectful personality.
What’s more? He had seen with his own eyes how Yin Mei helped Bai Lie see Ye Ling’s true colors back at the banquet.
So he held no doubt in Yin Mei’s words.
What’s more? There was a high chance that Bai Lie would personally go after Ye Ling, as that’s just how he was.
He had long ago told Bai Lie that he felt that Ye Ling was not a good guy, but Bai Lie always defended Ye Ling, so he stopped talking about him after that.
Speaking of which, he had to thank Yin Mei for her help. If not for her help, Bai Lie would have never seen Ye Ling’s true colors.
“Did something happen?”
Right then, Yin Mei asked with a frown on her face that showed a puzzled expression.
“To tell you the truth, Lady Yin Mei, our Young Master has yet to return after going off to deal with Ye Ling. I visited Ye Ling’s mansion a while ago and only found some fluctuations of aura there that showed that a battle went down there…”
“Ye Ling is missing, and so is our Young Master.”
The middle-aged man explained with a frown.
Yin Mei could hear a hint of worry from his tone as he spoke.
He had searched the entire ancient city, yet he couldn’t find any signs of the two, so he had no choice but to come to Yin Mei.
“Bai Lie is missing?”
Yin Mei frowned harder and said with a tone full of concern, “But Bai Lie is the Young Master of the White Tiger Family, so he must have many life-saving treasures on his person, so he should be fine, right?”
The middle-aged man sighed and then cupped his hands and said, “That Ye Ling’s methods are too strange and sinister, so I am afraid that the Young Master might suffer a massive loss at his hands. Lady Yin Mei, we have bothered you a lot, so we will take our leave now.”
Yin Mei nodded and said with some worry in her tone, “Tell Bai Lie to see me immediately after you find him!”
“I will let the Young Master know as soon as we find him, Lady Yin Mei; you don’t need to worry about it.”
The middle-aged man replied and then bid his farewell and left.
Yin Mei’s worry for Bai Lie at this time didn’t come to him as something abnormal — after all, Yin Mei was Bai Lie’s fiancée.
Yin Mei’s worry immediately disappeared as she watched the middle-aged man leave with Bai Lie’s followers, and an expression full of mockery appeared on her face as she muttered to herself, “By the time you find him, Bai Lie’s corpse would have already grown cold.”
“Master truly knows how to predict everything! There’s nothing hidden from him.”
When Gu Changge returned to his courtyard, he found Yue Mingkong waiting for him with her hands tied before her chest and her back leaning against one of the pillars in the courtyard.
The night wind blew and made her dress flutter while the silver moonlight illuminated her peerless visage. Dressed in a plain gauze dress, she merely stared at Gu Changge with her cold eyes.
Her expression seemed to resemble an aggrieved wife whose husband left her alone at home to steal food for himself in the dead of night.
Gu Changge couldn’t help but tease her with a smile, “Why do you look like this? Your husband didn’t go and feast on the food all by himself.”
The hazy moonlight compounded Yue Mingkong’s grace as it covered her tall and proud figure.
“Where were you?”
Yue Mingkong asked and then walked towards him with a frown.
She understood well that Gu Changge wouldn’t kill Ye Ling right now. It was very likely that he went to find trouble with Bai Lie, the Young Master of the White Tiger Family.
Still, she couldn’t help but ask as it was a matter of great importance.
What’s more? She could smell a strange fragrance from Gu Changge’s body…
Gu Changge replied with a smile, “Of course, I went out to get some work done; I also got to watch a good play tonight, and I will return to the Palace tomorrow.”
Yue Mingkong stopped right in front of him and narrowed her eyes with a dangerous glint in them after her lovely nose twitched for a while.
Her appearance and actions surprised Gu Changge, and he wondered if she could tell where he went through her nose and sense of smell?
Yin Mei, the Holy Maiden of the Nine-Tailed Celestial Fox Family, belonged to him, but he didn’t want anyone to know about it. The fewer people knew about their relationship, the better.
Gu Changge didn’t intend to tell Yue Mingkong about this matter.
He wondered if Yue Mingkong, a regressor, already knew about it or not?
“You have the smell of a vixen…”
Yue Mingkong said with a glare, and her not-so-indifferent tone showed her rage in full.
Her words stunned Gu Changge, and he couldn’t help but laugh out loud.
Speaking of which, Yin Mei was indeed from a family of Nine-Tailed Celestial Foxes.
What surprised him even more was that Yue Mingkong’s nose could actually pick up on something like this.
At the same time, he reckoned that he got her fragrance and aura on him when he played with Yin Mei’s foxtail.
This realization increased Gu Changge’s vigilance, and his aura surged to destroy the traces of aura and odor on his person.
He couldn’t let anyone figure out the relationship between Yin Mei and him right now, or his flawless plan would fall apart.
‘This girl…Yue Mingkong even remembers what I smell like so clearly, so there’s a chance that she’s still hiding certain feelings…’
Gu Changge couldn’t help but smile as he thought about this.
By the time he finished thinking about the matter, Yue Mingkong had already returned to her resting quarter while feeling that she had wasted all that time waiting for Gu Changge’s return.
It actually turned out that he ran out in the middle of the night to hook up with some woman.
The fact upset Yue Mingkong even more than before, and she wondered why a vixen jumped into Gu Changge’s life in this life?!
Of course, she knew that with Gu Changge’s temperament, whatever woman he went out to meet in the middle of the night was probably nothing more than one of his pawns.
Still, it made Yue Mingkong unhappy as deep jealousy flooded her heart which was already filled with murderous thoughts.
Yan Ji, the annoying woman in the Great Sacred Realm, already troubled her, but now…
She couldn’t deal with Yan Ji because of her great strength, but did that mean she couldn’t deal with this damned vixen who appeared out of nowhere?
“Don’t let this Empress find out your identity!”
[ED/N: Man, do I like jealous women… I’m now officially team Mingkong.]
Yue Mingkong clenched her hands.
A cold light flashed past her eyes, and a frosty expression covered her peerless visage.
But soon, her expression returned to its usual indifference. After all, she was a mighty Empress who could dictate the life and death of countless existence.
She might have suffered setback after setback in front of Gu Changge, but in front of others, she was a terrifying existence who could oppress them just by breathing.
For her, a regressor, dealing with someone was a simple matter.
What’s more? She was the Crown Princess of the Supreme Immortal Dynasty and held enormous authority in her hands.
Yue Mingkong deeply loved and hated Gu Changge. Although she did everything to avenge herself for what he did in their previous life, there was no way she would allow Gu Changge to keep another woman while she was still alive!
