Ye Liuli’s expression froze as she saw Gu Changge’s unhappy expression, and heard him ask them to leave. But she realized that she had indeed gone too far — after all, since when did Gu Changge need to explain his actions before her?
His claim that he didn’t try to kill her Brother Ye Chen also didn’t hold any falsehood. Ye Liuli couldn’t find any words of retort to his statements. The gap between Gu Changge and Ye Chen was simply too great, so much so that one of them was in Heaven while the other was on the Earth.
Ye Chen would have long perished if Gu Changge wished for him to die. Ye Liuli couldn’t help but feel apologetic towards Gu Changge after this realization hit her.
She wasn’t an ignorant woman who couldn’t listen to reason.
Today, she had come knocking at their door asking Gu Changge for an explanation out of nowhere. Now that she thought about her actions, she realized that she had been somewhat unreasonable.
Gu Changge wasn’t going too far by looking down on her and asking her to apologize; the fault lied with her!
“Liuli has offended you today, Young Lord Gu! Thank you for clarifying this matter for Liuli.”
Ye Liuli regained her composure and said to Gu Changge.
“Since you have received what you wanted, you may leave now!”
Gu Changge wasn’t surprised by her words, but he couldn’t care less. His indifference made Ye Liuli frown, and she felt a little down.
She had never suffered such humiliation, especially, she had never been chased out by someone. Today, she had hit an iron plate multiple times because of this man in front of her.
She felt unwilling and unconvinced!
Of course, Ye Liuli’s pride didn’t allow her to bicker with him anymore. Without saying another word, she turned around and prepared to leave.
“Young Lord Gu, I think you young ‘uns should get along with each other. After all, all of us are from the Upper Realm, and it’s fate that has brought us all together here in the Lower Realm…”
Aunt Xue couldn’t help but speak with flattery after seeing the exchange between the two. She believed from the bottom of her heart that their meeting with Gu Changge was an unprecedented opportunity, and that they shouldn’t miss it.
“No need, I am not interested in her!”
Gu Changge direct refusal pushed Aunt Xue’s words down her throat, and her expression stiffened. He didn’t know what was going through this middle-aged beauty’s mind, but he couldn’t care less about her.
He didn’t need to give face to Ye Liuli or anyone related to her, nor did he need to brush up on her favorability towards him.
An expression of embarrassment appeared on Aunt Xue’s face, and she didn’t know what else to say. She understood that her Young Lady’s performance today was somewhat inappropriate, even shameful, but to say those words so bluntly…he wasn’t giving any face to her Lady.
Ye Liuli, who had turned around, trembled and stopped in her tracks. What did he mean by saying he wasn’t interested in her? She felt that Aunt Xue had made her lose all face today.
Ye Liuli’s feelings of humiliation deepened, and she gnashed her pearly teeth.
“My Lady, forgive me…”
Aunt Xue felt guilt claw at her heart. She understood that her Lady had lost much face due to her actions today.
Ye Liuli ignored her, and with her frosty expression chilling further, she left without saying a word or looking back. She was worried that she might do something untoward if she stayed there any longer.
From her birth to this day, she had never suffered humiliation as extreme as what Gu Changge gave her. Her feelings of apology towards Gu Changge immediately disappeared into thin smoke.
He was an absolute villain!
Staying in his presence would only bring her more disgrace.
[Ding! You have shaken Ye Liuli’s trust in Ye Chen! Ye Chen lost 100 Points of Fortune Value! You received 500 Destiny Points!]
A System Prompt rang in Gu Changge’s mind as soon as Ye Liuli and her group left. A playful smile appeared on his face as everything had gone according to his plans.
Ye Liuli might be an impulsive brat, but she wasn’t stupid. A few nudges from him were enough to lead her down a spiral of her own thoughts.
True, Ye Liuli would hate him to his bones, but Gu Changge couldn’t care less about that. Sooner or later, he will deal with her, too!
Just a few sentences from him were enough to give her some food for thought. Right now, she wondered if Ye Chen had truly done something evil? After all, the Ye Chen in her impression was a honest, kind, and persevering young man.
A large amount of Ye Chen’s luck came from this cousin with a mighty background. Over the last period of time, Ye Chen must have obtained a lot of opportunities, and his Fortune Value should have skyrocketed.
Gu Changge was waiting for the right moment to harvest that leek.
Then, Gu Changge called out in his heart.

After consuming the 3000 Destiny Points required to reach the Late Stage of the Conferred Lord Realm, he was left with 1500 Destiny Points. Those had risen to 2000 after this haul.
Over the last couple of days, his Fortune Value had also increased slowly. He had received 30 Points without putting in any effort, or plundering someone else’s Fortune.
Gu Changge knew that this rise in his Fortune Value was because of the overpowered Fortune Su Qingge and Lin Qiuhan were blessed with. Lin Qiuhan’s terrifying talent for Alchemy finally flourished during this period of time, and that gave another boost to her Fortune Value.
At the same time, Gu Changge’s Fortune Value also rose because of her.
Then, Gu Changge started to ponder about Ye Chen’s affairs.
Now that Ye Liuli had come out of her seclusion and stepped into the world, it shouldn’t be long before the plot unites her with Ye Chen. It’s just that Ye Liuli didn’t know where Ye Chen was hiding right now.
However, Ye Chen, himself, should look for her as soon as news regarding her actions spread around. Unless Ye Chen had a hole in his brain, there’s no way he would want to let go of a thigh as fat as Ye Liuli’s.
He will take the initiative to show himself!
‘I can clearly sense Ye Chen’s exact location from the mark I left behind on his Master…’
‘He isn’t far from the Central Heavenly City, and should be at the point where the eight regions intersect.’
A strange light flicked in Gu Changge’s eyes as he squinted in thought.
‘If my guess is correct, the Ancient Heavenly Secret Realm should open any time now. It’s the reason my Original descended to the Lower Realm, so there’s no way I will let go of the [Eight Desolate Demon Halberd]!’
Gu Changge went through the memories in his mind. The Ancient Heavenly Secret Realm was created by a Quasi-Supreme powerhouse to seal the monstrous weapon, the [Eight Desolate Demon Halberd].
The [Eight Desolate Demon Halberd] had a deep connection to the secret technique Gu Changge cultivated, so there was no way he would let go of it.
As for how terrifying and fierce the [Eight Desolate Demon Halberd] was? There wasn’t even a need to think about it. A Quasi-Supreme had to self-immolate in order to seal it and prevent it from causing chaos in the world.
According to the normal cliche and tropes, Ye Chen would be the one receiving the inheritance of the Ancient Heavenly Secret Realm. During this process, he would suppress the [Eight Desolate Demon Halberd] and bring it under his control right when it escapes from its release and is about to bring a disaster to the Middle State.
Just like that, Ye Chen would become a hero who brings home a beauty and the treasures.
There was no need to talk about the dangers of the Ancient Heavenly Secret Realm created by a Quasi-Supreme.
In the Upper Realm, those with the title of Quasi-Supreme could easily be the Ancestors of supreme Dao Heritages that could exist for millions of years or even longer
If he didn’t tread carefully inside the Ancient Heavenly Secret Realm, the chance of him dying there wouldn’t be small.
