Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 11: Hallenge Dungeon

“Eldest Martial Sister, what’s a boy toy?"

"What are you asking, kid?!"

"Oh… Big Brother, what’s a..."

"I'll tell you if you call me Daddy."

"..."

Their conversation echoed on the empty street. Gu Nian felt her expression getting darker and darker. Fortunately, they finally arrived at their destination.

The entire town was the so-called “Mingguang Ascension Center,” but ascending to different destinations was carried out inside different areas within the town. Gu Nian brought them to the ascension area of Star Realm’s Ninth Region.

"Enter the ascension ship. Someone will remind you of what to do later. I’ll see you in Star Realm." After leaving such irresponsible instructions, Gu Nian's figure quickly disappeared.

Gu Nan and Little Cabbage looked around blankly, only to see two beams of light suddenly falling from the sky, enveloping them completely.

Gu Nan felt a strange force surrounding him, and his whole body started floating upwards, slowly flying towards the ship.

Only in mid-air did he see what the so-called "ascension ship" was.

It was an airship similar to an airship. It was quietly suspended in the air, and the light beam shot from the gap on it.

"What are you thinking about?" The entire process was very slow, so Little Cabbage couldn’t help but wonder curiously when she saw Gu Nan pondering something attentively beside her.

Gu Nan casually invented some crazy nonsense, "I was thinking about the principle behind these light beams."

"Oh, then you understand them now?"

"I roughly understand. It should be using a suspension force field to offset the gravity, and then the adsorbed particles are mixed into the light beam, resulting in localized low pressure, so the air pressure below will automatically push us up."

The explanation made Little Cabbage dumbfounded. She exclaimed in surprise, "Y-you’re so amazing… But how come I feel like the suction is coming from above me?"

"Oh, because I made that up."

"..."

A few moments later, Gu Nan stood on the side of the ascension ship, smiling as he sent away the staff who had transported them onboard, while Bai Luoluo, the little loli, was still standing on the side sulking.

"Hey, what are you doing?"

"I hate people who lie to me the most!"

"That was someone else who reincarnated into my body just now. The one speaking wasn’t me."

"Do you think I’m a little kid? You..."

"Yes."

Bam!

The little loli angrily slammed the door closed. The sound echoed, and Gu Nan shrugged helplessly before he walked towards the deck.

There was still some time left before the ascension mechanism activated, so he just casually strolled around.

Of course, more importantly, a burst of noise came from the deck, which immediately aroused Gu Nan's curious spirit.

Although he couldn’t be a protagonist, Gu Nan still played the role of a spectator very professionally.

Over ten people stood on the deck. Like Gu Nan, most of them belonged to the peanut gallery.

The main characters were two men—one tall and one short—who were currently mocking a young woman.

And between the two sides, there was a young man who looked like a staff member trying to mediate the fight.

"Brother, what happened?" Gu Nan touched the arm of the person next to him and asked curiously.

Gu Nan asked a bald man with a somewhat funny appearance. He had a delighted expression on his face. "Brother is also an ascendant and not a native of the imperial capital, right?"

"No, I’m from Feng City."

"I knew it. If you were from the imperial capital, you’d definitely know these people!" He said with a smile and continued to explain to Gu Nan.

It wasn’t a very complicated story. A particularly powerful reincarnator organization descended upon the imperial capital to look for some good seedlings to accept as disciples.

Those two, one tall and one short, were the chosen ones.

The tall one was called Luo Miao, and the short one was called Cai Yuanyi. The former was a descendant of an influential family in the imperial capital, while the latter was an ordinary common folk.

It stood to reason that the two should then start fighting and scheming against each other, but that didn’t happen. On one hand, Luo Miao knew how to behave with integrity, and on the other hand... It was because of this woman.

"This woman's name is Qin Xuanji. She’s the daughter of a small bureaucrat in the imperial capital. Her entire family had just been killed... But do you know what happened after that?"

"What happened?" Gu Nan asked very cooperatively.

The bald guy turned his head to the side and answered in a low voice, "I heard that this Qin Xuanji crawled to that one’s door naked and knelt there all night, so that one finally accepted her!"

Of course, "that one" referred to Luo Miao and Cai Yuanyi’s master.

“Oh!” Gu Nan had a sudden realization, and he exchanged a grin with the bald guy. Both their faces showed a grin that only men would understand.

But Gu Nan's heart was extremely calm, because the moment he saw this Qin Xuanji, he faintly felt a thorn on his back, as if he was facing an ancient monster.

‘There’s something wrong with this woman…’ Gu Nan made such a judgment in his heart.

As if to verify his conjecture, the Evil God Temple in his mind suddenly shook gently, and a line of small words appeared.

「A new dungeon has been detected——Challenge Dungeon: Qin Xuanji. Accept?」

>「Accept」 Gu Nan subconsciously chose accept and immediately came back to his senses.

‘It’s actually a challenge dungeon!’

The dungeon system in 《Evil God Cultivation》was actually quite complicated. The ones that Gu Nan cleared before were all mission dungeons, which were normally divided into three categories based on size: small, intermediate, and large. These could be entered repeatedly, but they would disappear once they were cleared.

In other words, the core of the mission dungeon was the mission itself. After completing the mission and receiving the rewards, the dungeon can no longer be entered again.

Yet challenge dungeons were different. They were especially designed for combat-oriented players. The goal of the dungeon was to defeat the challenge target, and even after winning, the player could still continue to challenge the target.

However, challenge dungeons had a time limit. For example, the current one Gu Nan had was only open for one day.

‘Not even Gu Nian could trigger a challenge dungeon, but this woman actually could?’ Gu Nan frowned slightly and pondered in his heart.

The challenge dungeon was generated by selecting a "challenging" target based on the player's experience.

‘If the Evil God Temple also follows this logic... Does that mean Qin Xuanji is stronger than Gu Nian?’

Without another word, Gu Nan promptly chose to enter the dungeon. In any case, time in the outside world would be completely still relative to the dungeon. It would only take an instant for him to enter and leave.

The challenge dungeon was no different from the game in Gu Nan's previous life. It was still located in a spacious and empty arena.

When Gu Nan entered, Qin Xuanji was already standing on the other side of the arena.

The instant Gu Nan's figure appeared, she rushed forward like lightning and directly threw a punch at Gu Nan's face!

‘So fast!’

Gu Nan also reacted exceptionally quickly. He immediately turned his face to the side; her petite and hard fist practically brushed past his face, and the wind from the punchmade his hair stand on end.

‘It would’ve been bad if her hands were slightly larger…’

Although he was silently rejoicing in his heart, his movements weren’t slow. Gu Nan quickly kicked his leg out and precisely swept it towards the opponent.

Gu Nan was highly confident with this kick. He knew that the so-called martial artists in this world valued martial arts but not combat or wrestling skills. They weren’t used to adapting to minute changes like these.

However, he didn't expect Qin Xuanji's reaction to be so fast. She supported her abdomen with one hand, her legs slightly bent, as Gu Nan's kick connected with her abdomen. Her whole body flew out, yet she landed steadily on the ground.

‘I’ve encountered a tricky opponent.’

Gu Nan looked at Qin Xuanji in the distance and felt his heart sink slightly.
