Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 26: Killing The Whole Family

Gu Nan slowly turned around. Two girls stood in front of him.

One was a girl in white whose height just reached his chest—oh, it should be a loli in white; the other one was a head taller than him, with short hair and purple clothes.

It’s said that there's a pure and beautiful loli standing behind every protagonist. Even when everyone dislikes and despises the protagonist, she will always…...

Bam!

The little loli threw a punch towards Gu Nan, but he caught it without extra trouble.

"Eh? How did you become so powerful?" The little loli looked at him in surprise.

The little loli was called Yan Xiaoxiao, who was also a child of an influential family in Jiujiang City, so naturally she knew of Gu Nan's reputation.

When she saw how Gu Nan sent the guards flying, she couldn't help wanting to try her hand, but she didn't expect Gu Nan to block her attack so easily.

Gu Nan’s eyes narrowed slightly, flashing with danger. She knew Gu Nan, but Gu Nan didn’t know her. Against those who dared to attack him…...

"Gu Nan."

Gu Nan's action suddenly stopped when someone called out his real name. Only then did his gaze turn to the older sister with short hair.

Of course reincarnators’ faces would be different from their original faces, but just as their strength could recover quickly, the appearance and figure of the bodies they possessed would gradually draw closer to their original bodies due to the influence of the soul.

Under careful observation, Gu Nan easily recognized her.

Mo Jiaqi, one of the companions belonging to the Sixth Asteroid Belt Division, was a rare psychic power cultivator, with a name and ability incompatible with this Immortal Demon World.

When she saw Gu Nan, Mo Jiaqi felt actually relieved as well.

She had devoted a lot of time to this mission and didn't know anything about Gu Nan, so she only regarded him as an ordinary newcomer.

So when she heard that the guide had been killed on the road, she thought something was going to go wrong.

Fortunately, the newcomer seemed to be more vigilant than she imagined.

"Just settle the karma first."

Gu Nan nodded. Since this little loli was with Mo Jiaqi, naturally it’d be hard to kill her, however, Gu Nan still gave Yan Xiaoxiao a strange smile.

Yan Xiaoxiao was scared by his smile. She looked at her cousin and couldn't understand what they were doing.

Someone from the Gu family soon appeared, and a group of people came over in a grandiose manner. The leader shouted, "Gu Sheng! How dare you return to the Gu family? Are you deaf to the Patriarch’s orders?"

The leader was this body’s uncle. Gu Nan couldn’t remember his name; he just recalled that this person didn’t treat the body’s original owner very well before.

"En, he can be killed." Gu Nan nodded in his heart.

However, since Mo Jiaqi came, he still had to walk through the proper procedures. Originally, he was going to directly kill everyone.

"From today on, call me Gu Nan," Gu Nan stepped forward and spoke loudly.

He then took out a sheet of paper from somewhere, which was crammed full of words. It was an official proclamation.

"Jiujiang City’s Gu family disregarded ethics and ruled as oppressors. They bullied me because I was young and weak, killed my mother, and drove me out of the house… Fortunately, I was blessed by immortals and cultivated…...

"Today, I shall kill the one hundred and four people in the Gu family, in order to settle my karma."

This long address certainly wasn’t written by Gu Nan, but prepared for him by Tang Xuan in advance.

Reincarnators had long found that by means corresponding to the world’s background, if they declared that they would settle their karma, the effect would be better than just taking action without any explanation.

'Which is to say, even the god of karma likes to listen to such reports,' Gu Nan silently ridiculed.

Upon hearing those words, the face of Gu Nan's uncle instantly paled, and even Yan Xiaoxiao couldn't help but look at Gu Nan in surprise.

"You’ve… actually become one of the Blessed?"

All the righteous path reincarnators come from Radiant Tower, and many people have said similar things, so legends about them already exist in the righteous path. They were even called the "Blessed."

The so-called Blessed was a person who had been blessed by the teachings of immortals.

Reincarnators usually grew at an incredible speed, which, in the eyes of ordinary people, had no other explanation except being blessed by immortals.

His uncle tried to calm himself down and said, "Gu... Nan, don't think that you can do whatever you want just because you’ve become one of the Blessed! My Jiujiang City’s Gu family is protected by the righteous path’s Five Sect Alliance!"

Over half of the so-called Five Sect Alliance had been infiltrated by Radiant Tower’s people. They might be fair and just when dealing with native inhabitants’ affairs, but once the matters involved reincarnators, fairness and justice were nothing more than jokes.

"Don’t come over… you…..."

Gu Nan threw the proclamation aside and looked at him in confusion. "But I’ve never walked over?"

"Ah…"

The next moment, a red light lit up.

"Fire!"

The fiery red arrow flew out, causing an explosion directly in the crowd and sending blood and pieces of flesh flying everywhere. A broken hand flew out and fell beside Yan Xiaoxiao’s feet.

"Ah!"

The little loli in white had never seen such a gruesome scene before and screamed on the spot. Even Mo Jiaqi became somewhat speechless as she hurriedly covered Yan Xiaoxiao’s eyes—this Gu Nan’s methods were truly cruel…...

Although the proclamation spoke about killing the whole family, most reincarnators wouldn't do so.

After all, they were merely granting their predecessor’s wish, so not everyone had such a murderous heart.

"Who dares to attack the Gu family!" A furious shout thundered out, and a figure quickly came out from the front.

This was the father of Gu Nan’s current body, the head of the Gu family, Gu Weiran.

Mo Jiaqi let out a small sigh of relief when she saw Gu Weiran appear, and her hands, which were covering the little loli’s eyes, also loosened a little—Now that the family head is here, Gu Nan probably won’t need to use such cruel methods to force them…...

The latest_epi_sodes are on_the ʟɪɢʜᴛɴᴏᴠᴇʟᴘᴜʙ.ᴄᴏᴍ website.

As if to face-slap her, Gu Nan had already shot out another arrow before Gu Weiran even had time to stand firmly.

"Wind!"

After his strength was increased again, the strength of the Four Element Crossbow also became stronger, and the bolt of wind shot out at an incredible speed, hitting Gu Weiran's heart dead-center.

"You..." Gu Weiran couldn’t even say a complete sentence before his body collapsed loudly.

Mo Jiaqi was flabbergasted. No matter how weak Gu Weiran was, he was still an Innate Realm expert. How could he be killed in one shot?

She couldn't help but turn to look at Gu Nan's profile, but she saw no expression on his face, as if he had done a trivial thing.

For Gu Nan though, this was indeed a trivial matter.

Ever since he killed over a dozen Innate Realm cultivators in Langya World and understood the combat mechanisms behind these martial artists, he never put those who used innate energy in his eyes again.

They had to mobilize their internal energy before fighting, or else they would be just like any other ordinary fighter. This was their fatal weakness. Once faced with an attack they didn’t have time to respond to, they could be instantly killed.

In essence, they were like mages in the game, who were usually fragile since they couldn’t maintain their magic shields at all times and needed time to temporarily activate those shields.

As Gu Weiran fell, Gu Nan seemed to become a ball of shadow and disappeared in the blink of an eye.

"So fast..." Mo Jiaqi became stunned again. This newcomer gave her too much surprise, both in terms of strength and in terms of how he dealt with such matters.

As for Yan Xiaoxiao, she was completely stunned. Although she had an extraordinary background, she had never seen such a grisly scene before.
