The entire square market was dead silent. All the cultivators in the surroundings stood in horror as chills went down their bodies. Needless to say, this was definitely a major matter!
As the little brother of a True Disciple of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace, Jin Yu had always been arrogant and domineering in front of others. No one had the guts to provoke him on normal days, but today?
Gu Changge smashed his body into a meat patty, and only his soul could escape with the help of some Mystical treasure.
Gu Changge had just returned to the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace, and already caused such a sensation. They reckoned that Jin Yu’s elder brother, Jin Zhou, wouldn’t let this matter rest easily.
The relationship between him and Gu Changge was already sour, so now that Gu Changge did this…
Besides that, someone with a keen eye suddenly noticed Gu Changge’s cultivation base, and widened his eyes to make sure he wasn’t mistaken, and then said with a trembling voice, “He killed a False God Realm powerhouse with a slap of his hand…if I am not wrong, then the aura he released just now belonged to the Conferred King Realm! Gu Changge must have broken through to the Conferred King Realm, right?”
“What?! How old is he? How is his cultivation speed so fast? I don’t think I have heard of any other Young Supreme to have broken through to the Conferred King Realm!”
The cultivator next to him was shocked.
“That’s to say that Gu Changge is the only Young Supreme who has broken through to the Conferred King Realm, right?”
Of course, there was a chance that some other Young Supremes had already broken through as well, and they had just suppressed the news. However, when it came to Gu Changge, any random action from him could shock the world already. Once this news went out, it would definitely cause a sensation in all eight directions!
Right then, a bunch of brilliant rays with powerful auras descended from the sky. They were the people of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace’s Law Enforcement team. There were seven or eight of them, but none of them dared to close in on the scene.
They already knew what went down in this place, and it was because of this that they felt flustered and didn’t want to get involved. The majesty and fairness of the Law Enforcement team would definitely be affected if they didn’t go forward and investigate the matter, but Gu Changge was someone they couldn’t afford to provoke.
On the other hand was Jin Yu’s brother, who was also a True Disciple of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace, and they couldn’t provoke him either.
They were stuck between a rock and a hard place.
Gu Xian’er, on the other hand, was left in a daze for a while before she finally recovered. She never thought that Gu Changge would say such shameless words like it was only natural. The indifferent expression on his face showed that dealing with her was no big deal.
What did he mean by saying that only he could bully her?
Why could others not bully her?
Just what did he mean by those words? Was he treating her as his personal fluff toy that he could smash around however he pleased?
She almost fainted with rage, and her face flushed red in anger. Her body trembled, and she yelled out towards Gu Changge, “Gu Changge, you are so shameless!”
“I am shameless? Isn’t protecting my little sister only right?”
Gu Changge still responded with an uninterested tone, and glanced towards the direction where Jin Yu escaped. Still, he couldn’t care less about a fly like him.
Gu Xian’er responded with a freezing tone, “I don’t need your protection! What are you plotting?”
She didn’t believe Gu Changge would treat her well for no reason — he was definitely plotting something! It’s just that she couldn’t figure out right away what he was plotting.
“What am I plotting?”
Gu Changge chuckled and responded indifferently, “What do you think I can plot against you? It might just be that I feel guilty and want to make up for my actions, no?”
“Of course, it might also be that I just want to see you seethe in hatred without having any ability to do anything!”
Gu Changge looked at her with a playful expression.
“Feeling guilty? People like you can’t have such emotions! Just you wait and watch! If you don’t kill me right now, then I will make sure to repay the pain you inflicted upon me over all these years!”
Gu Xian’er’s rage soared as she heard his words. Sure enough, someone like Gu Changge couldn’t turn over a new leaf.
Over the years, she would recall the memory of the moment he dug out her Dao Bone every day. How could Gu Changge understand her pain?
If an apology could solve grievances, why would the world be drowned in so much hatred right now?
Even if Gu Changge apologized to her right now, she wouldn’t accept his empty words! What use would those hypocritical words have for her?
“I would rather kill you right now, but…”
The smile on Gu Changge’s face disappeared as he heard those words, and he sneered.
Of course, that would be enough to scare her.
As for whether he could really kill her? Even if he had the ability, the thought of the act wasn’t realistic.
After that, he paid no more attention to Gu Xian’er, and went straight back to his carriage.
Gu Xian’er, on the other hand, paled as she heard Gu Changge’s words. She didn’t doubt that Gu Changge held murderous intentions towards her, after all, she also wanted to kill him.
It’s just that she wondered why Gu Changge didn’t do it?
He was unscrupulous even at the foot of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace, and no one dared to get in his way, so why would he need to show mercy to her?
Or could it be that he was really only scaring her?
“Gu Changge, sooner or later, you will regret not killing me right away!”
Gu Xian’er coldly spat towards Gu Changge, who was leaving in front of her, and clenched her fists. The brilliant runes she had condensed in her palms also disappeared, and her aura soon stabilized.
After all, she still had to visit the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace. If not for this coincidence, she would never want to come across Gu Changge so early. The might he radiated just from raising his hand gave her a sense of deep terror.
Even a False God Realm cultivator was slapped to death by him!
She didn’t know just how high his strength had reached after not seeing him for so many years. The word ‘unfathomable’ was no longer enough to describe him!
“My Lady, are you alright?”
“Uncle Fu, I am fine; I am just a little angry. That Gu Changge didn’t want to kill me, he just wanted to piss me off!”
Gu Xian’er gritted her teeth and responded to him. Her rage and murderous intent rose every time she mentioned Gu Changge’s name.
Uncle Fu couldn’t help but show a bitter smile, “My Lady, it’s a miracle that he didn’t intend to take our lives. Don’t forget that he has been looking for your whereabouts for years, and wants to kill you more than anyone else. Though, it’s strange that he didn’t go for the kill as soon as he saw you…could it be because of the Elders back in the Family?”
Gu Xian’er shook her head, and said to him in response, “Even if he tried to kill us, I am not afraid of him. Don’t forget that my masters gave me a lot of treasures.”
“This old servant was merely wondering about what just happened. Gu Changge’s behavior seems to have changed a lot from before, but his cruelty is all the same. When he killed those people, he didn’t show a single ripple in his eyes, and trampled them to death like they were nothing more than ants.”
Uncle Fu continued with a sigh, “My Lady, you must be careful when you cultivate in the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace in the future. Gu Changge is a True Disciple of the Palace, so it won’t be hard for him to deal with you.”
What happened in front of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace’s gates quickly caused a sensation, and spread to various parts of the world like wind.
Gu Changge finally returned after half a year of disappearance!
Countless cultivators were shocked and couldn’t believe the news that followed.
At the foot of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace’s gate, Jin Zhou’s little brother had his body turned into meat paste, and the cause of his cruel fate was a girl dressed in blue who seemed to be a member of the Ancient Immortal Gu Family.
The girl in blue seemed to be Gu Changge’s little sister, but there seemed to be some grudge between the two of them for some unknown reason.
Jin Zhou’s little brother was bullying the girl in blue, and happened to be found by Gu Changge who was returning to the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace. For this reason, Gu Changge directly slapped him into meat paste.
The incident caused major earthquakes everywhere, and even spread to other regions.
The moment when Gu Changge demonstrated his unparalleled might attracted the attention of many, and many recorded the events using [Imaging Stones]. This was what mattered the most to some people!
In the battles of the Upper Realm, many stars shone brightly, and there were innumerable young geniuses. Many Realms and Worlds were drowning with favored children of heaven, and there was no shortage of talents in the younger generation.
Everyone in the younger generation wanted to be in the limelight, gain fame in the Upper Realm, and shock the Universe.
Still, killing a False God Realm powerhouse with a single palm was a record set only by Gu Changge, and it showed his terrifying might.
This matter caused a massive sensation in every direction.
[At the core of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace.]
Countless Immortal mountains floated in the sky, and majestic waterfalls descended from them. Mystical fog covered everything, and reflected the brilliant sunlight, giving the place the appearance of an Immortal’s abode.
Cultivators were rushing around atop one of the peaks, going in and out of buildings and palaces. This peak was called the Extreme Solitary Peak, and it was the place where Jin Zhou, one of the True Disciples of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace, resided.
Brilliant mist shrouded everything inside a palace. A young man in golden robes sat in a lotus position, with a golden horn on his forehead. Spiritual Qi churned around him into a small whirlpool, and rushed into his body.
A layer of golden light emerged from his body, and turned into small golden vortexes one after another. Inside each vortex sat a cross-legged, fairy-like phantom chanting divine scriptures.
Endless brilliant runes appeared on the youth’s body, and made for a strange vision. It was clear that he was cultivating some terrifying, ancient art.
Behind the youth stood the faint shadow of a giant, golden beast that floated up and down. The beast’s giant mouth was like a black hole that kept on swallowing the endless divine brilliance in the palace.
The youth was none other than Jin Zhou, a True Disciple of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace. He was a Young Supreme with might above his peers.
Right at this moment, the void in front of him trembled, and a Primordial Spirit held inside a Mystical Treasure appeared out of thin air. The Spirit showed extreme resentment and rage, and said to Jin Zhou, “Elder Brother, you must avenge me! That Gu Changge is too much! I didn’t even provoke him, yet he almost slapped me to death! He destroyed my body, and if it wasn’t for this Mystical Treasure given by the Family, I would have died an early death!”
It was none other than Jin Yu, who had escaped from Gu Changge back at the foot of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace’s gate.
He was bitter, and wanted to smash Gu Changge to death by any means! He wouldn’t be able to calm the hatred in his heart any other way, after all.
The humiliation he suffered in front of everyone outside was worse than death itself!
“Now that you speak of it, wasn’t it your own fault? Who asked you to mess with Gu Changge’s little sister?”
“I already know everything that went down outside.”
As he said that, Jin Zhou’s eyes turned cold, and he continued, “Still, Gu Changge is indeed going too far! Even if he has the Ancient Immortal Gu Family behind him, our Ancient Immortal Golden Horn Family isn’t one that can be bullied so easily!”
“I will help you seek justice over this matter, but not right now. Gu Changge seems to have already broken through to the Conferred King Realm, while my ancient art is at the juncture of breakthrough. I won’t be his opponent until I break through.”
Jin Yu rejoiced as he heard his words, and said, “Thank you, Elder Brother! I will wait for the day you will avenge me Elder Brother! We must make Gu Changge regret what he did today!”
Jin Zhou nodded and said nothing.
In his heart, however, he turned extremely solemn and cautious. Gu Changge was his greatest enemy, and he couldn’t underestimate him!
Over the last period of time, he had come across various opportunities, and even condensed his Ancestral Phantom which brought his strength to another level. He had thought that he could finally avenge the serious injury he received at Gu Changge’s hands back then, but who would have thought that Gu Changge’s strength would soar at such a fast pace, and he would break through to the Conferred King Realm even before him!
He, Jin Zhou, was only at the pinnacle of the Conferred Lord Realm right now. Still, he was completely confident in himself. By the time he broke through to the Conferred King Realm, he would definitely be able to thrash Gu Changge with all of his abilities and aces!

: Complete speculation, but… This guy got his a55 handed to him when Gu Changge was only in the Saint Realm and he was in the Conferred Lord Realm, so what makes him think that he can do something to him when they are in the same Realm? You can’t tell me he went from Saint Realm to the pinnacle of the Conferred King Realm within six months, just like Gu Changge. He would need to also be a foaking transmigrator or some sh!z!
