Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 41: Visiting Immortal Demon World Again

“Mr. Gu Nan, you’re saying that you and Bai Luoluo didn’t know each other before?”

Gu Xingzhu sat in the hall with a dark expression as she looked at the young man in front of her drinking tea while adding sugar cubes. The kinds of tea that the Gu family took out to entertain guests were all priceless tea that used fragrant young tea leaves, but this person actually… put sugar in it?!

Gu Nan didn’t care what she thought. Based on his personal tastes, of course drinks should be sweet, just like jellied tofu.

“Yeah, I don’t know that little loli.” Gu Nan nodded without any trace of politeness. “I met her on the side of the road. She looked like she was lost, so I brought her back.”

‘Would Bai Luoluo, who’s in such a state, talk to a stranger? Like hell she would!’

Gu Xingzhu didn’t believe a word from Gu Nan’s mouth. However, she also couldn’t find fault with the person and interrogate him when he was denying it so blatantly. After all, he did bring Bai Luoluo back.

“Then, Mr. Gu Nan…”

“Oh, you’re welcome. Just call me Red Scarf” [1].”

“I wasn’t going to thank you!”

……

……

Half an hour later, Gu Xingzhu angrily shattered a cup and walked straight to the inner hall. She threw down the words, “Eldest Miss can talk to this person herself when she returns!”

Gu Nan looked at her retreating figure and shrugged.

“Mr. Gu Nan, have we met before?” After Gu Xingzhu left, Lu Xinyu, who had been sitting beside him, suddenly asked.

“Yes, on the transport ship,” Gu Nan readily admitted.

Lu Zhanyu slapped her thigh. “So it’s you! Did… Did you follow us?”

Lu Zhanyu wasn’t stupid at all. She almost immediately thought of that possibility and blurted it out.

On the other hand, Lu Xinyu’s expression changed slightly. She didn’t stop her younger sister but merely smiled bitterly in helplessness.

‘My little sister is still too honest. Even if she guessed that, she still can’t just say it outright…’

“Eh? You even found out about this?”

Lu Xinyu: “......”

“How can you be like this?!”

“What, why don’t you come beat me if you won’t accept it?”

Lu sisters: “.......”

Another half an hour later, Lu Xinyu, who prided herself on being a “negotiation expert,” helplessly realized that she indeed couldn’t deal with this young man.

The other party wouldn’t reason with her at all, and it was impossible to attack him inside the Gu residence, so there was nothing to talk about.

After two different groups who tried and failed to communicate with Gu Nan, the butler finally took him to a room to rest.

Without anyone to bother him, Gu Nan became happy with the peaceful silence.

Gu Nan was still eagerly reading some books in the room when evening arrived. A gust of wind blew from behind him.

Gu Nan almost subconsciously activated the Shadow Earring. The eerie lilac light flashed. The next instant, Gu Nan had already reappeared half a meter away.

“Prodigious Realm?” Gu Nan looked at Gu Nian in front of him and exclaimed with a little surprise.

This was the first time he saw Gu Nian’s real body. Be it her appearance or temperament, she wasn’t much different from the Gu Nian in Langya World. However, her expression was just slightly more indifferent.

Gu Nan wasn’t surprised at her appearance. However, the fact that Gu Nian had actually reached the Prodigious Realm in a few months was beyond his expectations.

Did she already achieve this long ago, or did she step into the Prodigious Realm because of the harvest from reincarnating into Langya World?

Gu Nan felt that the latter was more likely.

“You’ve actually obtained a treasure that grants innate ability. Looks like you’ve had a lot of fortuitous encounters in these months,” Gu Nian looked at the strange earring on Gu Nan’s ear and commented in surprise.

Speaking of surprises, Gu Nian was actually the one who’s more surprised.

Gu Nan was an ascendant who came from a small plane. It’s only been a few months, yet he had already obtained treasures of this level. Moreover, judging from his proficiency with it, he obviously had a deep understanding of this innate ability of his.

Gu Nian was more willing to believe that this was a treasure related to Gu Nan’s inheritance.

The two were like good friends who hadn’t seen each other for many years. They sat freely on either side of the tea table and talked about their experiences during this period of time.

“So it was Radiant Tower… No wonder my people couldn’t find you no matter what.” Gu Nian came to a sudden realization after she heard that he had been kidnapped to Radiant Tower. “Who would’ve thought that you also embarked on the path of reincarnation.”

“Is reincarnation that bad?” Gu Nan was slightly surprised. In his opinion, reincarnation was basically a business that made steady income with practically zero loss.

Gu Nian shook her head lightly and didn’t explain further. She changed the topic, “So the reason you found me is to get a cover identity so that you can become a solo reincarnator?”

“That’s right.”

Gu Nan readily admitted this. It wasn’t a secret or anything. He chose to reveal the news about “Radiant Tower” because he needed Gu Nian’s help.

Of course, he naturally kept silent about Qin Xuanji, the gods, and himself.

Gu Nian thought for a while and unexpectedly revealed a smile. “I can provide you with the reincarnation materials, but in exchange…”

“Hey hey, don’t you still owe me karma?” Gu Nan quickly interrupted when he heard that Gu Nian still had conditions.

He now knew what karma was. Clearly, Gu Nian’s karma back then was to take good care of the Gu family in Langya World, and Gu Nan was also included in this.

Apart from those who courted death, she probably also found a place for everyone else in the Gu family as well. However, only an anomaly like Gu Nan couldn’t be handled with common methods, so she had no choice but to take him to Star Realm.

“Me bringing you to Star Realm is already the greatest help for you, right?” Gu Nian smiled. “With your fate so far, Langya World’s will can’t fault me because of your karma.”

Gu Nan couldn’t help falling silent. He knew that he couldn’t trick an old fox like Gu Nian, so he could only ask, “What’s your condition?”

“I have to deal with some matters right away. You don’t have to manage the Gu family, but Luoluo will be in your care.” Gu Nian’s expression became serious. “She came from the same place as you. Helping her is the same as helping yourself.”

Gu Nian thought about the Evil Event he hadn’t completed yet and immediately nodded. “Deal!”

……

……

That night, Gu Nan moved out of the Gu family and came to a single residence provided by Gu Nian—he needed to carry out the reincarnation ceremony here, so he naturally couldn’t live in the Gu family.

‘Bai Luoluo’s matter isn’t urgent. This should be a long-term event… Who knows when the blackening would be considered complete.’ Gu Nan prepared to reincarnate while thinking in his heart.

“Blackening” was quite a complicated process, and reconstructing a person’s three views also couldn’t be done in one day… Oh, maybe one day just might work.

Putting this aside for now, Gu Nan currently wanted to return to Immortal Demon World to have a look. Of course it wasn’t because there was another little loli over there, but because there was a main mission over there.

Radiant Tower had already mobilized all its forces. If everything went well, then he might be able to enter and assist them so as to complete the main mission.

Although there would be a great amount of penalties for completing it as a team and the final rewards may be pitifully meager, still, it shouldn’t be lower than the minimum… This was at least a medium-sized plane!

Inside the dim little room, Gu Nan meticulously carved runes onto the ground according to the method Qin Xuanji provided.

About half an hour later, he finally succeeded and sprinkled the void powder evenly. An exquisite void portal immediately formed in front of him.
