Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 42: Quite Strong

At a remote cemetery in the Immortal Demon World, two young men—one tall and one short—were looking around in search of something.

“Brother Xu, how come it feels so chilly? Why don’t we leave……” The tall man walked behind the shorter one, lowering his head for warmth.

“Leave? Leave what?! In this world, the bold will eat full meals, while the timid will starve to death……” Although Brother Xu was short, he was braver. He scolded, “Besides, isn’t it the middle of the day right now? What are you scared of?!”

It turned out that these two cowardly grave thieves didn’t dare to go in the middle of the night but came at noon instead.

“This one will do. Looks like a rich person.” Both of them were amateurs. Even after searching for a long time, they still didn’t know which grave to steal. Finally, Brother Xu randomly pointed to one.

The tall and thin one gulped. Under Brother Xu’s scolding, he finally started to dig with trembling hands.

While digging, he was even chanting, “Ancestors, please protect us. Ancestors, please bless us… It’s not that we want to do this job, but the world really won’t allow us to survive otherwise……”

A short while later, the two actually did dig out a coffin. Brother Xu’s eyes began to shine. “This coffin is so beautiful! Come on, open it! There must be treasure inside!”

“B-Brother Xu……”

“What?” Brother Xu still had his back turned to the coffin, too busy looking for tools. When he heard the taller man’s voice, he turned his head and his soul almost flew away in fright.

They saw a gap opening up in the coffin by itself, followed by a figure standing up from inside!

“Ahh!”

Both screamed in unison and turned around, trying to run away. However, a strand of shadow reached them and gently circled around their solar plexus, instantly severing their life force.

The person who came out of the coffin was naturally Gu Nan. After getting the Shadow Earring for so long, he became more and more skilled in manipulating shadows.

“To think I was dug up by two little thieves. Looks like I need to find a safer place next time.” Gu Nan looked at the cemetery behind him and shook his head gently.

When a reincarnator leaves the reincarnation plane, the body they possessed also needs to be preserved properly—in reality, that just means finding a place to hide it.

It’s only been half a year, but his surroundings have changed greatly, becoming a desolate scene.

Gu Nan frowned ever so slightly and walked towards a nearby city according to a route from his memory.

Two hours later, Gu Nan stood in front of a small pawn shop and rubbed his forehead somewhat helplessly.

This city had also been affected by war. Right now, it was a dead city with no traces of the living. And the small base that Radiant Tower used to have here was also empty.

‘They didn’t even leave behind any information or materials. Looks like they weren’t in a hurry and retreated calmly……’

Gu Nan walked out of the pawn shop but didn’t find any other valuable clues. He couldn’t even find anyone from Radiant Tower, which made him a bit irritated.

Just then, voices from afar attracted his attention.

“Fairy Lin, this is Qingyun City.” A young man was talking, “Wherever that Polis Witch goes, not even a blade of grass will grow. She’s truly a witch!”

However, another man sneered and interjected, “Zhang Tianshu, that witch is hunting down people from the six demonic factions. If you think about it, she’s actually on the same side as you righteous path folks.”

“Mo Wusheng, don’t say such venomous slander!”

“Alright, both of you are here to catch the witch. There’s no need to quarrel like this……” A soft female voice spoke up, sounding rather helpless.

Gu Nan turned his head and saw that the three figures had gradually walked closer. It was very easy to tell them apart.

The woman with an extraordinary temperament wore a pink gauze dress and should undoubtedly be “Fairy Lin.” Next to her, the young man who wore a Big Dipper Daoist robe with an imposing appearance should be “Zhang Tianshu.”

That left the last man. He was dressed like a wandering martial artist and had an expression of disdain. He would probably be “Mo Wusheng.”

The three of them were also surprised to see Gu Nan here, because no matter how they looked, Gu Nan’s clothing and bearing didn’t seem like that of a refugee in war.

“Honorable Gentleman, greetings.” Fairy Lin stepped forward and gave a slight curtsy. “Has Gentleman seen a woman in black?”

“A woman in black? Is she the one you call the ‘Polis Witch’?” Some curiosity appeared on Gu Nan’s face.

“That’s right. That Polis Witch is the reincarnation of the Polis Star and is extremely bloodthirsty. If Gentleman can find her trail, it will be a blessing for all the common people in the world,” Fairy Lin spoke with a solemn expression.

Gu Nan shook his head. “I’ve also just arrived.”

A trace of disappointment appeared on Fairy Lin’s face, but she still smiled and thanked Gu Nan. Her words were like a spring breeze; it was obvious that she came from a large sect.

Right then, Mo Wusheng’s expression changed. A bird slowly flew down from the sky and spat a rolled-up letter into his hand.

Mo Wusheng read it in a single glance and suddenly became happy. “Fairy, we found her! We found that witch’s whereabouts!”

“Really? That’s great!” Fairy Lin was pleasantly surprised, but beside her, Zhang Tianshu’s expression turned gloomier.

Mo Wusheng glanced at Zhang Tianshu gloatingly and handed the letter to Fairy Lin. “The news came from my own family. The Polis Witch is at the Luo River Valley, and she’s been surrounded by demonic path experts.”

Zhang Tianshu hurriedly said, “Then we must hurry over. Those from the demonic path hate that witch right to the bone. Once a Prodigious Realm expert arrives, they will certainly kill her.”

Fairy Lin also nodded. A compassionate look of pity appeared on her face. “In the end, the Polis Witch is still the demonic path’s enemy. If her murderous nature can be dispelled, then it will be a blessing for the righteous path.”

“Fairy is too compassionate and merciful,” Zhang Tianshu and Mo Wusheng sighed together.

Next to them, Gu Nan secretly rolled his eyes. He had already labelled this Fairy Lin as a “Saintess Bitch[1]” in his heart, and he merely added, “This Polis Witch sounds really powerful. Why don’t you let me help?”

The three stared at him blankly. The two young men looked at Gu Nan with some disdain, and Fairy Lin also showed a bitter smile.

“Lin Jun appreciates Gentleman’s kindness, but that witch is overwhelmingly powerful. If you……”

Bam!

Gu Nan suddenly stretched out his left hand and punched the wall next to him, causing a muffled noise that interrupted Lin Jun’s words.

There was no reaction from the wall after his punch, which really confused the three of them.

The next second, a crack began forming on the wall. Zhang Tianshu rolled his eyes.

After a little while, the crack widened a little. Mo Wusheng frowned slightly, beginning to lose his patience.

After fifteen seconds, Gu Nan pulled his hand back and patted the dust on his hand. Lin Jun was about to speak, but Gu Nan placed a finger in front of his mouth in a shushing motion and pointed to the pawn shop.

“Say……” Zhang Tianshu raised his head, but before he could continue, Mo Wusheng suddenly pulled him.

Crack, crack, crack.

Zhang Tianshu couldn’t stop himself from turning around to look. He saw those cracks expanding at a speed visible to the naked eye, rapidly speeding up as they raced across the building. In the blink of an eye, the entire pawn shop had completely collapsed.

“This……”

Gu Nan grinned at the three of them. “I’ve always been quite strong.”
