Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 32: Side Quest Ompleted

On a small rural path, a dark shadow quickly drifted by and turned into a human shape. This was Gu Nan, who had just escaped from the hands of a Prodigious Realm cultivator.

As soon as Gu Nan’s human form appeared, he couldn’t help but fall to the ground and cough violently.

It was no laughing matter to simultaneously detonate over a dozen explosive arrows around himself. Even with his Evil God physique, it was still a bit too much.

However, he knew that the other party wouldn’t be much better off than him. Both of them would need to recuperate for a few days before their internal organs could recover from the explosion’s shockwaves.

Purely in terms of physique alone, he believed that he wasn’t much worse than those in the Prodigious Realm.

‘To think that the Four Element Crossbow’s bug can actually be used in reality......’ Gu Nan raised the crossbow in his hand and showed a strange smile.

《Evil God Cultivation》was a highly realistic game, but no matter how realistic it was, as long as it was a game, there must be some non-scientific parts, such as the creation of elemental arrows.

Taking the fire arrow as an example, its principle is to inject explosive power into the arrow, so where does this power come from?

Can’t be explained.

According to common sense, unstable explosives couldn’t exist under high air pressure and couldn’t be produced under such conditions, because they would lose control during the "manufacturing" process.

However, the Four Element Crossbow skipped this process and basically created something out of thin air, which gave the arrows an explosive attribute.

And once the fire arrow appeared, it would directly explode because of the high air pressure in the surroundings, so there was no need to shoot it at all.

In other words, it was the high air pressure made by Wen Changfeng that gave Gu Nan the "portable hand grenades" skill, which gave him a chance to escape.

‘In the end, I’m still too weak......’ For the first time since his transmigration, Gu Nan was dissatisfied with his own strength.

‘If I’ve already reached Tier 3 and learned a few random skills, I could've won over these so-called Prodigious Realm contestants with one hand.’

As a great Tier 16 Evil God in his previous life, he was qualified to say such a thing.

Putting away his strange equipment, Gu Nan found his direction and continued his journey.

‘First, find Tang Xuan in the central region and recuperate. With Radiant Tower’s power, it shouldn’t be difficult to find Yan Xiaoxiao… Whether I can advance quickly will depend on this little fellow.’

……

Yan Xiaoxiao walked alone on the busy street. Her hair was messy and her eyes were somewhat dull, much like a girl who got lost from her family.

She was very beautiful, so she easily attracted the attention of some vagabonds.

So at a hidden corner, three young men stopped her. "Little sister......"

Snap.

Yan Xiaoxiao stretched out a hand and gently broke the person’s neck, so the rest of his words were stuck in his throat.

The other two stared blankly, then quickly turned pale. They were just street punks. When had they ever seen such a clean killing technique before?

Yan Xiaoxiao’s movements were precise, efficient, and not sloppy at all. She was like a killer who had mastered the art of assassination for many years.

But who could have imagined that less than a month ago, she was still an innocent and ordinary little girl?

Yan Xiaoxiao coldly watched the two escape without any other expression. She casually threw the corpse aside and walked out of the shadows, continuing forward.

It's been almost three days since the battle in the small city. Every time she recalled the situation that day, her heart became very complicated.

“This is betrayal.”

Yan Xiaoxiao said such to herself.

She betrayed her teacher, and when faced with a strong enemy, she cowardly abandoned Teacher and fled on her own… but another voice in her heart told her: ‘It should be like this.’

Killers should accurately judge the situation. Escaping was the best way to help Teacher. Not only was staying behind useless, but it may even drag Teacher down.

‘Perhaps Teacher originally could’ve escaped, but had to stay behind because of me… Is that really possible? That's a Prodigious Realm cultivator……’

No matter how innocent or naive she was, Yan Xiaoxiao still understood the meaning of the words "Prodigious Realm."

On one hand, she felt guilty toward Teacher, but on the other hand, her heart was wavering.

The heart of a killer, which had been formed by slaughtering six villages, was shattered by Teacher in just two days. When the blood flower bloomed and Shangguan Xian's body slowly fell down, she really wanted to ask Teacher......

“So killers can even kill innocent friends at will?”

‘If this is the case, then will Teacher one day, towards me as well......’

While letting her imagination run wild, Yan Xiaoxiao inadvertently came to the city gate. A new notice was posted on the bulletin board.

Yan Xiaoxiao originally had no interest in these, but when she took a casual glance, she seemed to see her own portrait on it, so she hurriedly went up to take a closer look.

At the sight, her face grew paler and paler.

[Homicidal demon…. The six demonic factions’ revenge…. Jiujiang City’s Yan family.]

……

Inside a secret manor in the central region, Gu Nan stood up slowly after meditation and spat out a polluted breath, but his face showed a happy smile.

After three days of recuperation, the majority of his previous injuries finally disappeared. At the very least, it wouldn’t affect his combat ability anymore.

He pushed open the door and walked out. A familiar figure was already standing at the door. It was Tang Xuan, someone he hadn’t seen for a while.

"How is it? Still can’t find Yan Xiaoxiao?"

Tang Xuan shook her head, which gave Gu Nan a slight headache. This era was even more behind than he had imagined. The enormous five righteous sects couldn’t even find a single girl’s whereabouts......

When Tang Xuan saw him like this, she couldn't help but laugh. "Although we couldn’t find the person, the matter you requested has been done."

"Oh?"

"News of the homicidal demon from before, which is Jiujiang City’s Yan Xiaoxiao, is now known all over the world. As expected, the six demonic factions really did send people to avenge their fallen… but I didn't expect them to use such a cruel method."

After a pause, Tang Xuan frowned. "I thought they would kidnap Yan Xiaoxiao's parents and force her to show up......"

Gu Nan said with a smile, "I was the one who gave Mo Jiaqi the order to secretly slaughter the entire Yan family and frame the six demonic factions."

"Mo Jiaqi would listen to your orders?" Tang Xuan immediately stared in disbelief.

"Disguised as your orders, of course." Gu Nan just shrugged carelessly, as though his actions were proper and to be expected.

"You…" Tang Xuan couldn’t help but get angry. If it was before, she would’ve already slapped the offender, but now, she merely fought back her anger and tried to calm herself down.

The reason was very simple. Ever since news of Gu Nan's battle record in the south and news that he easily escaped from Wen Changfeng's hands spread, no one in the entire organization dared to look down on him anymore.

There were even widespread rumors within the organization that he was now number one under the Prodigious Realm, and it was only a matter of time before he entered Prodigious Realm himself—after all, he was someone who comprehended rudimentary innate ability when he was only Innate Realm Fourth Stage.

Wen Changfeng and Tang You were not kind enough to help him keep that secret. The news had already spread all over the world.

‘That’s Wen Changfeng, you know?’ Even Tang Xuan herself believed that she would get a headache when facing Wen Changfeng. After all, she had just advanced to Prodigious Realm not long ago.

"You took great pains to handle so many matters. Don’t tell me you merely wanted to create a killing machine?" Tang Xuan frowned as she looked at Gu Nan and asked.

His actions up until now might have been able to deceive outsiders, but it was very hard to deceive Tang Xuan, who personally helped him cover up matters.

She knew very well how much Yan Xiaoxiao would hate the six demonic factions after experiencing all these events.

A genius killer hell-bent on revenge was very headache-inducing.

"You can understand it that way." Gu Nan’s smile remained unchanged. "But it’s not because I have any perverted hobbies, it’s just......"

"Here it is!"

At the same time that Yan Xiaoxiao saw the contents of the notice, the Evil God Temple in Gu Nan's mind shook gently.

「Side Quest has been completed. There is no evaluation for the time being. Please enter the Evil God Temple to check the reward」
