121 — Gu Xian’er at a Loss; Ignored and Stunned!
All the True Disciples kept their mouths tightly shut, including Jin Zhou.
Gu Changge merely smiled in response.
Gu Xian’er had joined the ranks of the True Disciples already, too, and she stood among their group looking slender and lovely in her blue dress.
There was a cold and prideful expression on her charming face that had delicate and flawless features.
A big, red bird sat on her shoulder with a listless expression.
Countless young disciples cast secret glances of admiration towards her.
They couldn’t help but admire her for her courage to go against Gu Changge since everyone knew by now that there was some feud between the two of them.
What’s more Gu Xian’er had a flawless face that made her look like a fairy, so how could people not look at her Alas! Her young age prevented her from having a voluptuous figure, or the number of her admirers would double in a jiffy.
For now, her figure made her look like a flat board — if Gu Changge was to describe her.
Right now, she looked at the high platform with a cold and clear, relaxed gaze that appeared to not be looking at Gu Changge.
But in reality, she was secretly looking at him.
After she ‘accidentally’ injured Gu Changge a while back, she went back to her Master’s mountain to cultivate and didn’t go out to look for him anymore, nor did she have anything to say to him.
Gu Changge, on the other hand, also didn’t have the time to look for her.
Today was the first day Gu Xian’er got to see Gu Changge again after the last time.
Although she hated Gu Changge, she couldn’t help but accept the fact that Gu Changge’s face and figure were indeed quite attractive.
She didn’t miss the fiery gazes of the women in her surroundings, but that didn’t stop her from looking at him.
Of course, the fact that Gu Changge seemed to have healed from his injury brought her great relief, as she understood the destructive might of the blade she used on him.
It wasn’t easy to deal with the remnant energy that kept on corroding its prey…
It would make it almost impossible for the afflicted person to heal from the injury, especially if they had a strong physique.
Although Gu Changge said that he would consider the blade as payback to her, it still made Gu Xian’er feel guilt and uneasiness.
Gu Changge would have died on the spot if she hadn’t stopped herself in time.
His actions left her dumbfounded and she couldn’t understand why Gu Changge would stand there unmoving and let her almost kill him.
It’s just that she couldn’t bring herself to ask Gu Changge knowing that there was a life-and-death feud between the two of them, and she didn’t have a shameless character like him.
She suffered greatly at Gu Changge’s hands when he dug out her Dao Bone at a young age — the enormous pain almost killed her.
And now, Gu Changge almost died at her hands.
When she attacked him and almost killed him off, she saw the Dao Bone he stole from her and the cracks that covered it didn’t escape her sight.
This sent Gu Xian’er down a spiral of complicated feelings and thoughts.
She hated Gu Changge, there was no doubt about it, but…
The feelings of hatred and desire for vengeance that supported her for ten long years weren’t easy to resolve.
Even if she ignored the pain she suffered, what about the suffering and humiliation inflicted on her relatives
Who was she supposed to go to for justice
She spent every single day of the past ten years hating Gu Changge.
Although her feelings of hatred weren’t as deep as before, she still believed she had to defeat Gu Changge in an upright manner to avenge herself and her people; she had to make him go through all the pain he inflicted on her and everyone related to her.
But now that Gu Changge almost died in her hands, combined with his words and actions from before, Gu Xian’er was left in confusion.
What did she not know about what happened back then
Why did Gu Changge dig out her Dao Bone
Why did he now desire for her to cultivate well so she could avenge herself
From the moment they met again to now, she hadn’t once felt Gu Changge direct his killing intent towards her, nor did he go out of his way to make a move against her.
She, on the other hand, challenged him again and again and got suppressed without much effort from him, and that disappointed Gu Changge.
Why was he disappointed
Was it because she wasn’t strong enough and couldn’t catch up to him
These doubts kept on clawing at Gu Xian’er’s mind over the last few days, but she couldn’t bring herself to ask Gu Changge for clarification.
After all, there was a life-and-death feud between the two of them!
What’s more Gu Changge boisterously said that he was the only one who could bully her, and then went ahead to bully her multiple times.
Gu Xian’er’s ego made it impossible for her to bear that, so how could she lower her head and ask Gu Changge for an explanation
“It seems that my Martial Brothers and Sisters don’t wish to take any action, so I will consider it as your silent acceptance.”
Gu Changge’s voice sounded again at this time and brought Gu Xian’er out of her thoughts.
Immediately, her delicate hands tightly clenched the hems of her skirt in nervousness as she found Gu Changge looking towards her.
His gaze increased her nervousness as she felt that Gu Changge was about to talk to her, but she didn’t know how she would ask him about the events of that day.
Still, feelings of hope sprouted in the bottom of her heart as she felt that Gu Changge mustn’t care about what she did a few days ago if he was going to take the initiative to talk to her, right
To be honest, Gu Xian’er couldn’t bring herself to see Gu Changge over the last few days as she felt that her hatred for Gu Changge wasn’t as strong as it used to be.
That’s right! Her hatred for him had mellowed down.
With multiple thoughts rushing through her mind, Gu Xian’er watched Gu Changge walk in her direction with a gentle smile on his handsome, flawless face.
But soon, Gu Xian’er was left stunned on her spot.
Gu Changge wasn’t looking at her! Instead, he was looking at all of the True Disciples including her.
Gu Xian’er parted her lips to utter something, but froze after she felt at a loss for words.
“In that case, this Gu will graciously accept the position of the Palace’s Heir.”
Gu Changge said with a faint smile, and then walked straight down from beside Gu Xian’er without giving her a single glance or greeting.
At the same time, the voices of the True Disciples resounded from behind him, “Congratulations, Senior Brother Changge!”
Gu Xian’er was stunned by his actions and felt a little lost in her heart.
Why did Gu Changge…ignore her
