Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 28: A Murderous Heart

Mo Jiaqi never thought that Gu Nan would be this easy to deal with. He immediately agreed almost as soon as she started speaking.

This satisfied her. Of course, she thought that he agreed out of respect for her as his senior from the same branch office.

In fact, after learning about Gu Nan's terrifying accomplishments, she had no pride as his senior anymore. After all, strength decides the hierarchy in this world.

If it wasn’t for the fact that Yan Xiaoxiao was an important karma of hers in this world, she wouldn’t have stubbornly tried to handle this by herself.

"Yan Xiaoxiao?"

"Here... Teacher." In the inner hall, Yan Xiaoxiao stood in front of Gu Nan with some nervousness and replied with her head down.

Actually, she didn't quite understand why the other party didn't allow her to call him "Master" and insisted on using such a strange word like "Teacher.”

Gu Nan nodded gently and looked calmly into her eyes. "First of all, you must understand one thing… The current me is not the same person as the former me."

It was common knowledge among the natives, that a Blessed person before and after being blessed by immortals, was considered two totally different people.

Yan Xiaoxiao nodded vigorously when she heard this.

Gu Nan showed a trace of a smile. He was actually quite curious about the sudden appearance of this side quest. After all, he had transmigrated for a long time, yet this was the first time that a new side quest had appeared.

The so-called side quests were things that would have a significant impact on the main mission.

This young girl in front of him… will have a great impact on the main mission of exterminating the six demonic factions? This meant that even without his appearance, she would have still been an important character.

Whenever this happened, Gu Nan experienced the wonderful feeling of participating in history.

"You said you want to study under me, so what do you want to learn?" Gu Nan asked Yan Xiaoxiao kindly, but there was no emotion in his eyes, only calmness.

"I don't know either." Yan Xiaoxiao hesitated. "That day… After the events at the Gu residence, I had this thought."

Gu Nan raised his eyebrows. "You want to learn how to kill people?"

As if her true thoughts had been stabbed by a sharp arrow, Yan Xiaoxiao’s breathing quickened a little, and she took a deep breath. "......Yes."

"Okay, then come with me."

……

In the territory of the five righteous sects, everyone in Radiant Tower’s southern branch suddenly found a strange thing.

Gu Nan, formerly known as the "Craziest Hunter,” suddenly vanished without a trace. Not only did he stop attacking demonic path Innate Realm cultivators, but he also rarely returned to the branch office anymore.

A few days ago, someone curiously asked him why.

"Oh, I’ve killed almost all the Innate Realm experts around here."

“……”

Gu Nan wasn’t exaggerating. Innate Realm cultivators weren’t cabbages that popped up all over the place. Almost all the Innate Realm warriors in the major southern cities had been killed by him.

Even if Yan Xiaoxiao didn’t appear, he still would’ve stopped recently or ran to other places to continue his hunting.

The six demonic factions had also realized this, but they merely felt lucky that this god of slaughter was finally willing to take a break.

In a hidden abode, three men and two women were standing in the shadows.

"That fellow… is he finally willing to stop?"

"En." A man wearing a blue crown smiled bitterly. "As expected of someone from a major organization like Radiant Tower. Just when we thought we could fight them on equal ground, this kind of person appeared."

"It can’t be helped. After all, we’re not a full-time reincarnator organization. We can only rely on the natives… These natives cannot cope with powers they find difficult to understand after all."

The biggest difference between natives and reincarnators lies in their scope of knowledge; they had never seen many of the reincarnators’ techniques before.

"Gu Nan… It’s actually him? If I’d known that, I would’ve sent him back no matter the risk earlier."

A female voice interrupted. If Gu Nan was here, he’d definitely recognize this young girl as the one who tried to launch a sneak attack on him after he just reincarnated.

"Tang You, it's too late to say that now… and looking at the present situation, you might not be able to beat him. "

“……”

"Alright, in any case, the people at the top will soon send a Prodigious Realm cultivator here to try to send this Gu Nan out." A man who seemed to be the leader interrupted the conversation.

After a pause, he said, "Recently, there is a report from below that someone is killing civilians in our area. Tang You, go investigate."

Tang You, the girl who fought Gu Nan before, wondered, "I understand...... Just who would kill even civilians?"

"That’s exactly what you need to investigate."

……

Within the six demonic factions’ sphere of influence, a figure was flying around in a small village in the countryside, wantonly killing ordinary civilians in the village.

A girl dressed in black, with a simple crossbow in her left hand and a dagger in her right hand.

Her movements were very concise. She took away each life with almost every attack, and there were few redundant movements. Her killing efficiency was also very high.

"To become a killer, the first thing you must learn is not the skillset or the related knowledge, but a heart that is apathetic to life.

"After you get used to killing, that’s when you can start to learn the skills."

With Teacher’s cold and indifferent words constantly echoing in her heart, Yan Xiaoxiao restrained her instinctive reaction while carrying out the massacre—nausea, fear, and… excitement.

This was the sixth village she slaughtered.

Originally, she thought that because she had the power of a peak Acquired Realm fighter and was a famous genius who had received Mo Jiaqi’s special training, how could a group of ordinary people pose any trouble to her?

The latest_epi_sodes are on_the ʟɪɢʜᴛɴᴏᴠᴇʟᴘᴜʙ.ᴄᴏᴍ website.

However, reality taught her a deep lesson.

Killing people was nowhere near as simple as she had imagined. Everyone could easily burst out with amazing potential when faced with life or death situations. This was especially dangerous for her when there were a large number of opponents.

In the first village, when she almost vomited because she saw the first person's intestines exposed, more than ten big men rushed up from behind, each with a weapon in his hand.

Even the crude agricultural "weapons" brought her considerable harm. The nearest rake was only half an inch away from her neck.

Fortunately, Teacher was there…

Yan Xiaoxiao’s movements paused slightly and she looked back at the white figure standing on the side of the road— ‘Just because he likes to wear white clothes, he won’t allow me to wear them. He really is……’

"Don't get distracted, there are two more over there." Gu Nan's lazy voice rang out, "If one escapes, you won't get dinner tonight."

‘You’re speaking as if I actually have any appetite……’ Yan Xiaoxiao secretly rolled her eyes. She couldn’t compare with her teacher after all, who could still gorge himself even after a bloody slaughter.

But she very earnestly went towards that side.

Not only to complete the tasks that Teacher assigned, but also… to be loyal to her own deepest thoughts.

‘Kill them… Don't let even a single person escape… Kill everyone here……’

A kind of unspeakable excitement began to occupy Yan Xiaoxiao’s tiny body, and the endless desire to kill reverberated in her mind. Just when she was about to lose herself in that desire, a pair of calm eyes appeared in front of her.

‘Those are Teacher's eyes… Even in the midst of the craziest slaughter, he still has that sort of gaze.’

Yan Xiaoxiao’s remaining reason told her this.
