Unable to See Through Him; Match Made in Heaven!
Yue Mingkong’s head went blank with a buzz. She had made countless calculations and imagined many ways that Gu Changge might use to deal with her, but she never expected him to do something like this.
Didn’t he hate her beyond measure in their past life? He hated her so much that he wouldn’t even touch her, or why would he kill her in cold blood on the night of their wedding without even doing anything to her before that?
Yue Mingkong’s mind was in a mess right now. From the moment of her rebirth, she had never been in so much confusion.
Originally, she had a lot of methods that she could use to get rid of Gu Changge, but her initial counter failed, and she decided not to do anything more as they weren’t in a desolate place. She could only let Gu Changge hold her in his embrace, and bring her to his bed deep in his palace.
Yue Mingkong couldn’t help but tense up. She had never encountered such a situation in her two lives. She couldn’t understand why Gu Changge would do something like this?
She simply couldn’t make sense of anything right now. From her understanding of Gu Changge, there was no way Gu Changge would do something like this. Could it be that her regression had caused the world to undergo certain changes that she couldn’t estimate?
Could Gu Changge have also changed as a result of her regression?
Various thoughts went through Yue Mingkong’s mind, and she felt even more lightheaded. She couldn’t understand Gu Changge’s thoughts, nor could she make sense of what was going through her own mind right now.
“Haiz! Mingkong, I think you have always misunderstood your husband!”
Gu Changge said with a smirk, and stared at Yue Mingkong’s gorgeous, fairy-like face and disbelief-filled eyes.
“Gu Changge, you…”
Right now, Yue Mingkong was in an extremely complicated mood. She couldn’t figure out what was going on, nor did she want to worry about all that right now.
Naturally, she hated Gu Changge, and her hatred for him was seated deep down her bones…but at the same time, she loved him more than anything else, too!
In the end, no words were spoken between them through the night.
[Seggs that was never written.]
[The next day.]
Yue Mingkong was already gone by the time Gu Changge woke up. As he glanced at the tidied up bed, he reckoned that Yue Mingkong was the one who took away the beddings from last night.
At the same time, a System Prompt sounded in his mind.
[Ding! You have shaken the murderous heart of the Favored Daughter of Heaven, Yue Mingkong! You have received 500 Points of Fortune Value and 2500 Points of Destiny Points!]
Gu Changge’s expression showed some interest, and then he couldn’t help but laugh out loud.
Matters were naturally heading in the direction of his choice. Right now, Yue Mingkong was most likely drowned in doubts and thinking that the him right now was different from the him she knew in her previous life. She was probably thinking that the current him wasn’t all that bad.
Women were suspicious creatures by nature — whether they be the emotional type, or the extremely rational type.
As for how suspicious they were? As long as they could find a little clue, they could guess a lot of things from it. It was the same as their brain filling in the blanks with what it desired most.
Yue Mingkong was no exception to this.
‘The issue is resolved for now, but I will need to spend a lot of time if I want to completely subdue Yue Mingkong.’
Gu Changge thought to himself as he walked out of his palace.
Yue Mingkong, on the other hand, avoided him with her full might. Be it at breakfast, the farewell banquet, or the moment when their entourage left, she didn’t show herself even once.
Gu Changge wasn’t surprised by her actions, but he wondered how long she could hide herself like this?
As the saying went: ‘you can hide for a day, but you can’t hide for a lifetime!’
They had a lot of time ahead of them, so he wasn’t in any hurry to see her.
On the other hand, Gu Changge was preparing to return to the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace. He had already been away from the Palace for more than half a year now. Although he was a True Disciple of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace, and even had the Ancient Immortal Gu Family backing him, these statuses could only help him shut people from speaking against him in public.
In the shadows, there were still a lot of people dissatisfied with him.
What’s more? The power structure inside the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace was far more intricate than the Gu Family. Almost every person in the Palace had the shadow of a major Heritage behind them.
The Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace was the place where the mighty existences of the Upper Realm played their true games and schemes.
[The Supreme Immortal Dynasty’s entourage on its way back.]
Yue Mingkong sat cross-legged inside a divine carriage made of black gold, which was pulled by a group of nine phoenixes. She seemed to be in a trance, and one could see some worry clouding her face.
The maid who served her couldn’t help but tremble at the side, and didn’t dare make as much as a peep. Yue Mingkong was in a strange state when she saw her in the morning. She appeared to be gnashing her teeth, and a gloomy aura surrounded her. She looked completely different from the indifferent, majestic, and supreme Crown Princess she was used to serving every day.
The sudden change in her mistress’ behavior shook her down to her core, and she worried for her life and did her best not to offend her mistress.
After all, she was well aware of how Yue Mingkong had obtained her current position of Crown Princess. Her mistress was an extremely ruthless woman who crushed many with an iron fist, and executed countless people around her. When asked for a reason, she said that she did it because she felt like it.
Those incidents were still fresh in her mind, and she feared that she might end up like those people if she wasn’t careful.
Yue Mingkong was never like this before.
Right then, Yue Mingkong seemed to have gotten tired of thinking. She rubbed her glabella, and asked her servant with a tone full of majesty, “Huan’er, what do you think of Young Master Changge? What kind of person is he?”
The maid named Huan’er trembled in fear as she heard her question.
“Crown Princess, I dare not speak anything about Young Master Changge!”
She responded with a trembling voice.
She would only dare talk behind Yue Mingkong’s future husband’s back in front of her if she was tired of living. Huan’er knew she was not tired of living.
“It’s alright, you have my permission!”
Yue Mingkong gave her a cold glare.
Huan’er gritted her teeth and resolved herself after seeing her glare at her, and said, “From what this servant saw, Young Master Changge and Your Excellency are a match made in Heaven. You two look like an Immortal couple when you stand beside each other. Besides that, Young Master Changge has unparalleled talent, and he will also be the one in-charge of the Ancient Immortal Gu Family in the future!”
“Although there are a lot of rumors circulating in the outside world that claim that Young Master Changge is a ruthless person who isn’t easy to talk to, I feel that the rumors might be false. From what this servant saw, Young Master Changge has a gentle temperament, and no matter who conversed with him, they would feel as if a tender spring breeze was caressing them!”
Yue Mingkong waved her hand and let her stop in her tracks after listening to this much. She didn’t say anything, but her expression turned even colder and a deep glint flashed through her eyes.
Gentle temperament? That’s just what Gu Changge showed in front of others.
As for tenderness? How come she didn’t feel any from him last night? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Yue Mingkong couldn’t help but clench the bedding in her hand even tighter as she thought about this. A glaring plum could be seen blooming on the bedding.
‘Gu Changge, it turns out that even I, who has lived two lives, can’t see through you at all!’
Yue Mingkong had a complicated expression.
On this trip to the Gu Family, a lot of things had happened that were completely out of her expectations. She had thought that she would be able to play Gu Changge in the palm of her hand, but contrary to her expectations, the one who got played was her.
She was completely dancing in the palm of his hand!
All the advantages that she obtained through her regression failed in front of Gu Changge.
‘This is even more reason for me to not let you go; Gu Changge, I will repay you all the pain and anguish you inflicted upon me!’
[Upper Realm, Outer Region, Land of Forsaken Immortals.]
An endless, ancient mountain range towered into the sky, and ancient trees covered with wines stood around like hills. Dark clouds shrouded the sky, giving the entire place an ancient and unfathomable appearance. Terrifying beasts roamed around everywhere, and one could hear roars and rumbles that resembled the sound of massive doors screeching against each other.
Yan Ji had already reached the depths of the Land of Forsaken Immortals.
Right now, she stood atop a towering tree and watched a small and mysterious village in the distance. The sky above the village was shrouded in a layer of fog and frost. Whenever a fierce beast passed by the village, it showed an extremely cautious expression, and rushed past the village at its top speed.
When the beasts looked at the village, they showed extremely fearful and respectful expressions.
‘How did the Young Master know that there would be such a mysterious village in the depths of this Forbidden Land, and with that mysterious Peach Tree at that?’
‘Also, why does this tree resemble the tree rumored in ancient records? Didn’t it disappear many epochs ago?’
Yan Ji showed a solemn expression, and carefully hid her aura.
Although she was already in the Great Sacred Realm, she couldn’t help but panic at this moment, and tread with care.
No matter how she looked at the mysterious village, she could tell that it wasn’t simple. There was something terrifying about that village!
What’s more? Gu Changge had cautioned her to immediately use the [Domain Traversing Talisman] if she felt even the slightest threat to her life.
Yan Ji’s expression suddenly changed as she heard the sound of something cutting through the air at an extreme speed. Within a moment, whatever that thing was, it reached her.
It was a peach blossom! It was an extremely brilliant and gorgeous peach blossom, but right now, it resembled the blade of a supreme Immortal sword! Terrifying force of suppression descended upon her, and it was as if the peach blossom could cut through the Universe as it slashed towards her!
The Void split open at once, and horrible cracks appeared in the surrounding space. It was an extremely terrifying spatial tear that she wasn’t able to resist with her current strength.
Yan Ji’s expression paled, and she used the [Domain Traversing Talisman] without any hesitation. The Talisman in her hand shone with a brilliant, destructive light and various runes appeared around it.
The Void in front of her blurred, and then a spatial tunnel appeared out of nowhere. Without any hesitation, Yan Ji escaped into it. Her reaction was extremely quick, but she still spurted a mouthful of blood as some of the might of that attack reached her!
But before it could completely hit her, the opening of the spatial tunnel behind her closed. Still, she suffered serious injuries just from that partial attack.
Fortunately, she was able to take advantage of the spatial tunnel, and disappeared from the Land of Forsaken Immortals soon.
[Hundreds of thousands of miles away, in another piece of space.]
Yan Ji’s figure suddenly appeared from the Void. Fear lingered in her heart, and she couldn’t help but break out in cold sweat as she recalled the terror of the attack that almost obliterated her.
‘If not for the [Domain Traversing Talisman] given to me by the Young Master, I would have ended up six-feet under right then and there. The Land of Forsaken Immortals is too mysterious and dangerous.’
‘I must ask the Young Master to watch out for it and pay attention to the movements in there. He must be looking for this Peach Village, so I must go back as soon as possible and inform him.’
Yan Ji’s figure disappeared as she thought of this, and she headed towards the Inner Region of the Upper Realm.
The Upper Realm was extremely vast, and even a Great Sacred Realm master like her would need decades just to traverse across the Outer Region. Without the Teleportation Formations or Spatial Tunnels that connected far away lands, ordinary cultivators could never leave the area they were born in for the rest of their lives.
[Back in the Land of Forsaken Immortals.]
The extremely luxuriant peach tree gently swayed outside the Peach Village. It’s peach blossoms looked extremely gorgeous, and every petal seemed to be carved out of Immortal jade as they shimmered with incomparable beauty.
“To think she would be able to escape…it seems that I was too careless. Who would have thought that she possessed a [Domain Traversing Talisman]…”
“She didn’t have the aura of the Gu Family on her body, so she shouldn’t have come here for Xian’er; just who could she be then?”
“It seems that the tranquility of the Peach Village will soon be broken after such a long time.”
The melodious voice of the peach tree rang in the surroundings, but it soon fell silent.
