150 — Not an Unsung Hero; Let Me in on the Fun!
Mighty mountains surrounded by endless haze and immortal mist towered into the sky in the depths of the Ancient Immortal Continent. Divine lights flashed from their depths and disappeared into the sky every now and then.
Innumerable tyrannical fluctuations of aura would burst out every now and then and rise towards the Heavens and shake the mountains to rumble with earthquakes.
The scene was bleak and the people of the True Dragon Family mourned the loss of their young genius.
“Young Master Long Teng was murdered!”
“His corpse wasn’t brought back either!”
A group of dragon-like creatures knelt in front of an ancient palace with bloodless faces — at this moment, their very souls quivered.
Long Teng’s death was a terrifying event that shook the entire Ancient Immortal Dragon Family.
Long Teng was their generation’s hope.
Many Elders of the Family had felt that with Long Teng’s potential and True Dragon bloodline, he would take charge of their’s Family’s fate in the future, sweep through the world with his might, and become an invincible behemoth.
But now…Long Teng was murdered!
This infuriated the entire True Dragon Family — some were frightened, though — and all of them fell into disbelief.
After all, Long Teng was as mighty as a True Dragon, so how could he die so easily at the hands of someone from the same generation?
Alas! It was an undeniable fact that he did die.
Everything would be good and well if the person who murdered Long Teng came from an ordinary background, but the murderer turned out to be the Young Master of the Ancient Immortal Gu Family, who was also the Heir of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace.
With those identities backing him, there was nothing the Ancient Immortal True Dragon Family could do about him.
If they crossed the line, then they wouldn’t just face one or two heritages from the outside world, but an all-out assault.
They estimated that the entire Ancient Immortal Continent might end up in ruin!
“Even if you can’t accept it, you must endure it! Long Teng’s skills weren’t as good as the other person, so he was defeated by him. My Family has no complaints!”
A terrifying old man with dragon horns and a face filled with grief said with a stubborn tone from inside the palace.
“We must bring back his body, however; we are already taking a massive step back with just this!”
If they couldn’t bring back Long Teng’s body after he died in battle, then they wouldn’t be worthy of their title as the Ruling Family of the Ancient Immortal Continent.
Long Teng’s spirit in heaven wouldn’t be able to rest in peace either.
More important than all of that, they couldn’t lose the drop of True Dragon Blood Essence from Long Teng’s body! As long as they could get it back, they would be able to raise another worthy heir in the future.
“What if the Third Elder cannot reach an agreement with that Young Master of the Ancient Immortal Gu Family?”
Someone inside the palace couldn’t help but ask, worried that Gu Changge wouldn’t return Long Teng’s body.
“He will return it, but if he doesn’t…”
“I will use the True Dragon Emperor’s decree to unite all the races of the Continent to slaughter those from the outside world’s younger generation!”
The grief on the face of the old man known as the Third Elder disappeared as he said with a cold tone.
He didn’t believe that Gu Changge would be able to withstand such oppression.
As soon as he brought out the True Dragon Emperor’s decree, all families of the Ancient Immortal Continent would have to obey them.
It’s just that to make sure they don’t cross the bottom line of the outsiders, they would only make the younger generation of the Ancient Immortal Continent unite against the outsiders.
In this way, even if they enraged the outsiders, the outsiders wouldn’t have a reason to deal with them.
After all, both parties had already agreed that no one from the older generations would be allowed to intervene in the grudges of the young’uns!
He believed that Gu Changge would have to take a step back in the face of the Ancient Immortal Continent’s absolute might no matter how strong he might be.
What’s more? They weren’t making any excessive demands — all they wanted was Long Teng’s body.
[TL/N: if I was Gu Changge, I would let Mingkong take the essence blood and give them the useless corpse just to shit on them.]
At the same time, a massive stream of light swept across the sky and passed over multiple mountain ranges.
Any cultivators and creatures who saw the scene would change their expressions and retreat in fear of accidentally crossing that group’s path.
The one in the lead…there was probably no one in the Ancient Immortal Continent who didn’t know his identity.
Long Teng, the leader of the Ancient Immortal Continent’s younger generation, died in his hands, and that incident caused a massive sensation throughout the Continent.
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that no matter if they were a cultivator from the outside or a creature from the Continent, as soon as they saw Gu Changge, they would take a detour.
“This is what a Young Sovereign is like! He has boundless strength.”
“You must stay away from him if you see him in the future.”
A Young Heavenly Genius on a nearby mountain peak made sure to drill those words into the heads of his juniors with a serious expression.
“Senior Brother, what’s going on? Isn’t he the young man who slaughtered the guy from the Ancient Immortal Continent and scared all the creatures from the Continent? Why must we avoid him?”
A somewhat innocent girl asked with a puzzled tone. At the same time, she blushed as she watched the young man with Immortal-like bearing in the distance.
“Don’t think he’s a good person just because he has good looks! You have to know that a lot of Young Supremes have met a violent death in his hands!”
The senior brother said with a hateful expression on his face.
Over the last period, everyone watched Gu Changge’s followers rush to all the places where divine lights would burst towards the sky in the Ancient Immortal Continent and signify the birth of an opportunity.
Gu Changge himself didn’t show up, but as long as his followers came forward, everyone else had to give up on the opportunity and dared not fight them for it.
This incident sent chills down the spines of many Young Heavenly Geniuses.
The Ancient Immortal Continent had countless opportunities, but if they crossed Gu Changge, they would have no choice but to
die take a step back.
Because of this, every time someone chanced upon an opportunity, they prayed to the Heavens to make sure they wouldn’t run into Gu Changge.
After all…with Gu Changge’s strength, there was nothing they could do about him.
Not to mention the rest of the Young Heavenly Geniuses, Gu Changge even dared to steal opportunities from disciples of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace, so the other young geniuses had no choice but to shut up and accept their fate even if he targeted them.
What Gu Changge didn’t know was that now that he had killed a bigshot, he was a target for the True Dragon Family of the Ancient Immortal Continent.
Of course, even if he did know about it, he would just laugh it off and find it a pleasant coincidence. After all, he was having ideas about the Ancient Immortal Families of the Continent already.
Among his targets, the True Dragon Family was his biggest target because Gu Changge knew that the birth of the Immortal Spirit would definitely disturb the hidden monsters of the Ancient Immortal Continent and the outside world.
By then, all agreements would disappear into thin air.
The Ancient Immortal Continent’s heritages couldn’t let go of such an opportunity, and the heritage with the deepest background on the Continent was none other than the True Dragon Family.
‘I have chased the one who spied on me for so many days, yet he still won’t show up. Worse, he’s trying to hide his aura.’
Gu Changge thought with narrowed eyes.
After all, that person was the only witness to the fact that he gave Long Teng’s corpse to Yue Mingkong. Since Long Teng’s body held a drop of True Dragon Blood Essence, then it was like a hidden danger to whoever possessed it.
Gu Changge wondered if someone else from the Ancient Immortal True Dragon Family knew about that drop of blood essence. If they did, then they would do anything to snatch back Long Teng’s corpse.
After all, that drop of blood essence was equal to the blood of their ancestors. For the aboriginal heritages of the Ancient Immortal Continent who valued bloodline over everything else, its value couldn’t be estimated.
Because of this, it was very likely that he would end up as the Ancient Immortal True Dragon Family’s target since they believed that Long Teng’s corpse was in his possession, and didn’t know that he had already handed it over to Yue Mingkong.
The only witness to that fact was the person he was chasing now.
Gu Changge had already decided to not make a fuss about that matter, so there was no way he would let it get exposed.
In addition, Long Teng was slaughtered by him, but if the Ancient Immortal True Dragon Family found out that his corpse wasn’t in his hands, they would go and trouble Yue Mingkong, and might even implicate her.
What nonsense was that? Wasn’t it the same as him screwing over Yue Mingkong?
Gu Changge never planned to do something like that.
Although Yue Mingkong would plot against him every now and then, it was a fact that she loved him deeply.
Gu Changge wasn’t a ruthless murder-hobo, so he could, of course, feel her love for him.
That was also why he pampered Yue Mingkong quite a bit and let her do whatever.
So now that he saw such a hidden danger aimed at her, Gu Changge decided to deal with it to make sure Yue Mingkong wouldn’t be implicated.
‘Of course, I can’t do all of this in vain! I have to find a way to let Yue Mingkong know about this.’
Gu Changge couldn’t help but smile as he thought that.
He wasn’t planning to be an ‘unsung hero.’
What was the fun in doing good deeds if no one was going to know about them?
[TL/N: some get a kick from doing unsung good deeds, but seems like Chawnki isn’t one of them. A villain indeed.]
He wished for Yue Mingkong to learn about him actively protecting his woman from the shadows, so she would be moved beyond measure.
‘Oh, you aren’t going to run anymore?’
Gu Changge suddenly came out of his thoughts after he noticed that the aura in front of him had stopped in its tracks and wasn’t going any further.
There were mountains in the nearby area, with a relatively remote city built in the middle.
The city wasn’t all that big, and could only accommodate a population of a few hundred thousand.
It’s just that most of the population was of creatures from the Continent, and there weren’t many cultivators from the outside world here.
The aura Gu Changge was chasing seemed to have hidden inside the city. Without hesitation, Gu Changge rushed into the city with his followers in tow.
‘After running for so many days, are you now planning to have a showdown with me? Or did you lead me here on purpose, and already prepared a trap inside the city?’
Gu Changge wondered with narrowed eyes.
He had chased the other party for so long, and although they radiated an aura that couldn’t be from the younger generation, he didn’t care about it at all.
The fact that Long Teng’s corpse wasn’t in his hands couldn’t be exposed for now.
“Seal the city in front of us.”
“Capture or kill any suspicious figure that tries to escape the city!”
Gu Changge instructed the followers behind him and then turned into a divine ray of light and went ahead.
Soon, a group of powerful creatures and cultivators surrounded the ancient city ahead.
[1: Gu Changge’s followers comprise non-human creatures from the outside world. The creatures mentioned here are referring to them, and not those from the Continent.]
At the same time, different colored lights surged into the sky with the intent to lock down the surroundings.
[Inside the ancient city at this time.]
A middle-aged woman with golden wings walked on the street without any hurry or intention to flee.
At the same time, she showed a frown on her gloomy face and thought to herself, ‘It stands to reason that the True Dragon Family must be furious now that Long Teng died, but why am I feeling unease. After all, that has nothing to do with me…also, who’s been chasing all these days?’
She couldn’t feel at peace no matter what she tried as her intuition terrified her to the point that she dared not believe it, and kept running away without stopping even once.
After seeing the battle between Long Teng and Gu Changge, she decided to not leave immediately and stood there to observe the scene for a little longer.
She felt that the matter regarding Long Teng wasn’t simple and that she might be able to improve her status in her Family by pleasing the True Dragon Family.
After all, the True Dragon Family was the absolute overlord of the Ancient Immortal Continent and ruled over everything.
‘Now that I think about it, it must be Gu Changge…the Young Sovereign from the outside world. He seemed to have noticed me at that time.’
‘If it’s him…why is he hunting me down? Is it because I witnessed him had over Long Teng’s body to his fiancee? Is there something wrong with his fiancee?’
A bright light suddenly flashed past the middle-aged, golden-winged woman’s eyes.
‘Is there something hidden on Long Teng’s body? Why would I knowing about that attract his pursuit?’
‘Or is there another reason?’
By now, her anxiety had peaked to another level.
Just then, the golden-winged middle-aged woman’s complexion changed as she felt several mighty auras reaching toward her from the horizon, and she knew that they were the people who were chasing her all this time.
Several young people from her Family were present in this city, so she had stopped here to ask them to inform the Family about her plight so they could come to support her.
She had never imagined that one day, a junior would hunt her down.
It’s just that the other party’s strength was immeasurable and made her heart palpitate. Even though she was in the Heavenly God Realm, she wasn’t sure she could win against him.
“Third Aunt, why are you here?”
Right then, some of the young creatures standing in front of a pavilion — both male and female — recognized the middle-aged golden-winged woman and shouted in surprise.
“Xue’er, Yu’er, what are all of you doing here?”
The golden-winged middle-aged woman frowned and reached toward them in a hurry. At the same time, the uneasiness in her heart deepened.
While hurrying towards them, the middle-aged woman glanced towards the city’s outside and then sighed in relief when she realized that there was no one there.
Soon, the group of young creatures led her inside the pavilion.
“Third Aunt, I heard that you went to watch that battle! Did Lord Long Teng really fall?”
On the way, several young creatures with expressions of sadness and disbelief asked the golden-winged middle-aged woman.
The leader of their younger generation, Long Teng, actually fell in battle, and that made it hard for them to accept reality — they suffered a massive blow because of this fact.
Many still couldn’t believe it to be the truth.
The golden-winged middle-aged woman frowned when she heard that question and said, “What are you asking about? Also, why are so many people gathered here?”
She noticed that a lot of young creatures had gathered inside the pavilion, all of them younger generations of the different Families of the Ancient Immortal Continent.
“We’re discussing how to avenge Lord Long Teng and slaughter that wicked man named Gu Changge.”
A young woman with a similar pair of wings as her stood up when she heard her question.
Her tone was filled with hatred and murderous intent when she mentioned Gu Changge’s name, and she couldn’t wait to slash him with thousands of swords.
She was one of Long Teng’s admirers.
Yet…Long Teng was defeated and died and had all of his reputation ruined. That matter caused a massive sensation throughout the Ancient Immortal Continent and its Families.
The blow was even greater for those who admired Long Teng.
In their hearts, Long Teng was an invincible myth, so many of them still couldn’t accept reality.
Right now, many of them had gathered in the pavilion to discuss this matter. Although most of them had never seen Gu Changge, it didn’t affect their hatred for him.
Of the many Young Supremes who came to the Ancient Immortal Continent, they only remembered one name: ‘Gu Changge!’
The middle-aged golden-winged woman couldn’t help but sigh when she heard those words. Although she also wanted to take down Gu Changge to please the True Dragon Family, she didn’t dare do it under the watchful eyes of countless people at that time.
What’s more? She also felt that her strength wasn’t enough for the task.
“Don’t talk about this matter! Gu Changge is scarily strong — he’s not someone you can defeat just by banding together.”
She shook her head and poured cold water on the heads of the young’uns in front of her.
“Impossible! Gu Changge must have used some tricks at that time, or how else would he be able to defeat Lord Long Teng when his strength was far inferior to Lord Long Teng’s?!”
Some young creatures didn’t believe the news and said with reddened faces.
“The outsiders are far too despicable! In my opinion, Gu Changge is nothing more than a despicable villain. I heard that he succeeded because of a sneak attack. If he had fought Lord Long Teng in an upright manner, he would have been the one to die!”
The winged woman also said with a bitter tone, not reconciled at all.
The middle-aged woman felt as if she had somehow ignited a swath of explosives as she listened to their hysteria.
All the young creatures inside the pavilion screamed out of unwillingness.
They believed that Long Teng was a great and invincible being, and his opponent was a despicable and shameless villain who won through shady means.
The golden-winged middle-aged woman couldn’t help but feel helpless in front of them.
She, of course, knew about these rumors, but those were just words spread by the Ancient Immortal True Dragon Family to smear Gu Changge’s name and elevate Long Teng’s status. After all, she witnessed everything first-hand.
She realized that it wouldn’t be good for her to pour cold water over their heads. It was better for all of them to unite in thought against the cultivators from the outside world, even if it was done like this.
What’s more? The younger generation of the Ancient Immortal Continent required a target like Gu Changge that could motivate them.
So, after looking at the indignant and hate-filled faces of the young creatures in front of her, she also nodded and said, “What you heard is correct! I was there at that time, and Lord Long Teng was indeed murdered through despicable means…his opponent was a scum who used indiscriminate moves that shouldn’t be used in individual duels, and that made it hard for Lord Long Teng to counter him since he disdained to attack him with similar means…”
Just as she was talking, the golden-winged middle-aged woman felt a chill, as if some terrifying existence was staring down at her.
At the same time, the door of the pavilion opened and a young man in a moon-white feather coat walked in without a hurry and said with a smile, “What are you all talking about? It’s so lively here, so why don’t you let me listen in on it, too?”
As soon as the golden-winged middle-aged woman saw the newcomer, her pupils shrank and an even more terrifying chill went down her back.
Her body turned cold, and she felt as if someone dropped her down an ice cellar.
