Chapter 7: Novice Gift Pack; System, Upgrade!
Gu Changge fell into deep thought after hearing about Su Qingge's situation.
"My Lord, there's something I don't understand."
Old Ming had a face full of doubt. He was quite familiar with Gu Changge's temperament after following him for a while. Everything the Young Lord did had some reason. Every situation was carefully crafted by him even if someone couldn't see it.
What he wanted to understand was why his Young Lord let that Ye Chen off after only suppressing him once?
It was normal for Old Ming to have that question.
After transmigrating and fusing with the memories of the Original, it wasn't hard for Gu Changge to arrange his words to not give himself away.
"Regarding that," Gu Changge's eyes were still indifferent, and he enunciated each word slowly, "that Ye Chen is blessed with great Fortune, so I might be able to get a fortuitous opportunity through him."
These words weren't incorrect. After all, Ye Chen had much Fortune that had to be shaved off his body. What's more? The Heavens must have arranged quite a few fortuitous opportunities for these Favored Children. Wouldn't he be a disgrace if he didn't use these rat – ‘cough' – radars to obtain all those opportunities?
Gu Changge couldn't help but shake his head as he thought about this.
"So that's how it is!"
Old Ming nodded in surprise.
His Young Lord was hailed as a God-Child from the moment of his birth. He could see through what many of the older generation monsters couldn't, so Old Ming had no reason to doubt his words.
After all, his Young Lord looking to widen his horizons was a mere front for the people — the real reason he descended upon the Mortal World was to look for a Heavenly opportunity.
"Go to the Dungeon and closely observe Ye Chen's every move, but no matter what happens, don't interfere."
Gu Changge ordered after thinking about something.
He had somewhat figured out how he could shave off Fortune Value from the Favored Children of Heaven. Fighting them was one method, stealing their opportunities was another. Some matters, such as relationships, weren't under the direct protection of his Lord Father, the Heavens.
Like before, when he drove a wedge between the heroine, Su Qingge, and Ye Chen.
"I will do as My Lord commands!"
Old Ming responded, and then his figure disappeared into the thin air.
Gu Changge, on the other hand, considered obliterating Ye Chen's Fortune through the heroine, Su Qingge.
That looked like a good method.
Back in the hall, he had easily destroyed Ye Chen's mental state through Su Qingge. That made it clear to him that destroying the relationship between the Favored Son of Heaven and the Heroine of his story was a viable counter.
Furthermore, he could use some tricks on Su Qingge, too, now that he knew of her weakness.
‘Su Qingge's 300+ Fortune Value…it makes me salivate!
Gu Changge's expression changed as he shook his head and thought about this matter. He was becoming more and more comfortable with his current identity.
In the next moment, he called out to the System and the Attribute Panel appeared in front of him.

"Novice Gift Pack?"
Gu Changge's mind churned as he wondered how he forgot about this piece of information? How had he not noticed the existence of this Warehouse before?
[Would you like to receive the Novice Gift Pack?]
The System prompted?
Gu Changge sneered in his heart. How was it possible for him to not receive it right away now that he knew about its existence?
Gu Changge's heart thumped.
Soon, a dazzling box radiating with divine, golden light appeared in front of his eyes and slowly opened.
[Ding! Congratulations to the Host for having great luck! You have obtained: Domain Traversing Talisman x1 | Five-Colored Mystic Vest x1 | One-Third Fragment of a World Seed x1]
The System's prompt rang in his ears. Gu Changge found that the Novice Gift Pack was no different from a Lottery Box, something that depended on luck. And although he had a Dark Fortune, it didn't seem to affect the System.
All of the items seemed pretty good.
The [Domain Traversing Talisman] did what the name suggested. It let one break out of a Domain, or traverse from one Domain to another.
The [Five-Colored Mystic Vest] was a defensive artifact. As Gu Changge read it's introduction, he realized that it was quite a powerful artifact that could withstand a full-powered blow from a False God Realm powerhouse.
These were the Cultivation Realms Gu Changge was familiar with. As for Realms beyond the False God Realm, those belonged to the worlds beyond, and couldn't be described in simple terms. They held might that could even overturn Heaven and Earth.
Immediately, Gu Changge put on the [Five-Colored Mystic Vest]. From the outside, it looked like a silverish inner shirt made of some strange material. With the hazy brilliance flowing around it, it looked like some garment for the Immortals. Apart from having an extraordinary appearance, there was nothing special about it.
After that, he checked the introduction of the [One-Third Fragment of the World Seed].
[A complete World Seed, when refined, can nourish a world of its own inside one's body, with a self-sustaining ecosystem of life and death.]
"Creating a world inside your body? Now that's interesting."
This thing could be called a Godly treasure. Gu Changge's eyes lit up as he thought about how it could be used for escape if he encountered a crisis in the future. A world within one's body was a good place for hiding.
After all, no one could guarantee they would never end up in a precarious situation without a way out.
It was a pity that he only received a third of it.
Gu Changge sighed, "Forget it, I will think about it in the future. For now, I should increase my Cultivation instead of fretting over external assistance."
In the vast Heaven and Earth, personal strength was what truly mattered in the end. No one will hinder him from increasing his Cultivation!
"System, add points!"
You could call it ‘personal strength' if it was obtained through your hard-earned Destiny Points, right?
