The entire hall turned dead silent.
‘Wanna play with me? You are still too wet behind the ears!’
Gu Changge shook his head in silence.
With clothes whiter than snow, he stood with his hands behind his back and looked down with indifference. His gaze resembled the gaze of a man staring down at an ant that pranced around.
Ye Chen, on the other hand, knelt on all fours in embarrassment. His pale face showed his indignation. Cold sweat dripped down his back and limbs, and no matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t lift up his head.
All the onlookers watched this in shock.
The ones who received the greatest jolt were none other than members of the Taixuan Holy Land who knew a thing or two about Gu Changge.
Judging from his age, they had expected Gu Changge’s strength to be not much better than the younger generation of their Taixuan Holy Land. But reality proved their thoughts wrong, and his might seemed to rival that of the Taixuan Holy Lord’s!
“Young Lord Gu is so young, yet his Cultivation is unfathomable…”
Taixuan Holy Lord couldn’t help but exclaim in admiration as he saw the true surface of Gu Changge’s strength for the first time.
At the same time, he glanced at his daughter’s pale face with a mystifying look in his eyes.
He couldn’t help but sigh.
Had he known this would happen, he would have long crippled that troublemaker Ye Chen’s cultivation and kicked him out of his Sect. Where would he have the opportunity to offend this Young Lord then? Right then, he decided Ye Chen’s fate in his heart.
“The Taixuan Holy Lord is too generous; this one’s strength isn’t worth mentioning.”
Gu Changge smiled when he heard the praise, and replied in a calm tone that resembled the spring breeze. But his continuous indifference couldn’t hide his loftiness and solitary attitude.
He really didn’t care about those remarks.
He was someone who had descended upon the Lower Realm from the Upper Realm, where he was already a young sovereign whose name resounded from East to West. He was simply that powerful, so how could he be compared to some random strays.
If he wanted to stomp Ye Chen, who was trying to slap everyone’s face, all he had to do was to terrify the Grandpa hiding in his ring from showing his face.
Once that happened, would they still have the guts to protect this Ye Chen? After all, there was no way Gu Changge descended upon the Lower Realm without any protector hiding in the shadows.
What’s more? He had sent a sound transmission to his protector to subtly intimidate the remnant spirit inside Ye Chen’s ring. And it appeared that everything progressed according to his expectation.
Stomping a Favored Son of Heaven didn’t appear all that hard now.
Ye Chen, on the other hand, was still in shock and panic. He couldn’t comprehend why his always-reliable Master wouldn’t respond no matter how he tried to contact them?
Gu Changge’s face showed no change, but his heart was full of laughter.
“I am ashamed to make Young Lord Gu personally deal with this matter.”
At this time, Taixuan Holy Son, Chu Xuan, said with an expression of guilt.
From one glace, Gu Changge could tell that Chu Xuan’s fate was to be his minion, so how could he blame him? Hence, he gave him a comforting smile and said, “Holy Son Chu Xuan needn’t take this matter to heart. Since everything started because of this Gu, it’s only natural for this Gu to take care of it.”
“Young Lord is generous; this Chu Xuan is ashamed.”
Just as Gu Changge expected, his words only increased his status and respect in Chu Xuan’s heart. It was to the point that Chu Xuan resolved himself to hug Gu Changge’s thigh no matter what.
On the other hand, the flowery speech also brought Gu Changge another wave of admiration and sighs from the onlookers. This Young Lord was both tolerant and talented — he truly wasn’t a simple man.
No, how could he be described as ‘not a simple man’?
He was both unpredictable and elusive!
“Young Lord Gu is mighty! He’s truly a God who has descended upon our mortal world. Just a breath from him makes my heart tremble.”
“I had thought our Taixuan Holy Land was a mighty titan standing above all with its millenniums of heritage and millions of miles of territory, but now that I have seen Young Lord, I finally understand what the words ‘Heavens beyond Heaven, Mountains beyond Mountain’ mean…”
All the Elders agreed and started to flatter Gu Changge with flowery speeches.
Their appearance that resembled obedient dogs licking their master’s thigh surprised the Elders and Disciples who had come from other forces to watch the Coronation Ceremony, since they didn’t know the insider facts.
They were even more curious to find out the identity of this mysterious Young Lord.
It was clear to them that the Taixuan Holy Land, one of the six Sacred Lands of the Eastern Desolate, had embraced this Young Lord’s thigh at some point without making a squeak.
A situation like this didn’t signify fortune for the forces behind them, after all.
‘Being a villain is cool. People fall over themselves and flatter you like obedient pups. And unlike the Protagonists, you don’t even have to suffer the mockery of the world.’
Gu Changge thought to himself.
At the same time, he also opened his System. After all, how was it possible for a Transmigrator to not have a Golden Finger of his own?
His Golden Finger was a Status screen similar to those seen in video games. It displayed his various attributes and other information.
He could earn Destiny Points by reversing the Fortune of the various Favored Children of Heaven, and the Points themselves were the currency used for all kinds of things in the System.
Not only could he exchange them for Cultivation Techniques, but they could also be used to obtain Talents, Bloodlines, and so on.
He could even add those points to upgrade his various Mystical Abilities that he had cultivated.
In short, the System had all the functions Gu Changge could think of, and maybe, even functions that he couldn’t think about right now.
Gu Changge called out to the System in his heart, and a translucent interface appeared in front of him.
Host: Gu Changge
Identity: True Disciple of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace
Bloodline: Devil Heart, Dao Bone
Cultivation: Saint (Completion Stage)
Heavenly Immortal Dao Codex
Myriad Changes Demonic Physique (Talent)
Immortal Devouring Demon Art
Destiny Points: 50
Fortune Value: 30 (Dark)
System Shop: Unopened
It was a concise interface with all kinds of useful information available at a single glance. He had also obtained those fifty Destiny Points by stomping Ye Chen just now.
‘System, what will happen if I obliterate this Ye Chen right here and now?’
Gu Changge asked in his heart.
[Host, the System suggest that you do not try that right now. With your current Fortune Value, there’s a high chance you will suffer from a Fortune Backlash if you killed a Favored Son of Heaven whose Fortune Value is much higher than your own.]
Sure enough, it was almost the same as what Gu Changge had guessed. He couldn’t help but shake his head while secretly cursing the bastard author and his bastard world.
What was with this shitty setting?
With a talent and background like his, all he received were 30 points in Fortune Value. To add insult to injury, it was Dark as heck!
That Ye Chen, on the other hand, had hundreds of points in his Fortune Value even in a situation like this where he got stomped.
According to the System, the Fortune was divide into seven levels.
Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue, Purple.
Normal people were generally blessed with a Red Fortune, while this Ye Chen was blessed with a Green Fortune. As for Dark Fortune? Wasn’t that just fucking Misfortune?
[It’s your Fate to be plagued by Misfortune if you are pitted against a Favored Child of Heaven!]
The System explained.
As for the backlash suffered due to his Misfortune? That could be anything from randomly choking to death while savoring tea, getting struck by lightning while taking a stroll, etc.
‘It seems that to crush a Favored Child of Heaven, you must take your time and exhaust his Fortune point by point.’
‘And this process…I like it! He-he, stepping on ants and slowly crushing them to death…’
Gu Changge’s face remained the same, but he had already communicated a lot with the System in his heart.
Favored Son of Heaven is supposed to be used for a Male blessed by Heavenly Fortune.
Favored Daughter of Heaven is supposed to be used for a Woman blessed by Heavenly Fortune.
Favored Child of Heaven is supposed to be used when the gender is not known/revealed.
