Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 69: Tang Xuan's Gift

After the massive fight in Luo City, Gu Nan's life once again became “peaceful”—he basically stayed inside the manor everyday, with people serving him. Someone even presented him with more information about Prodigious Realm cultivators, so he only needed to go out to harvest Evil Value.

But just when he was enjoying his comfortable life, huge changes were occurring in the Immortal Demon World.

Radiant Tower’s years of preparation finally paid off. Its offensive had a thunderous momentum as soon as it launched, and with Gu Nan’s help, the experts of the six demonic factions fell one after another, barely having enough power to fight back.

In terms of foundation, expertise, and degree of control over the natives—Satsuma Heaven couldn’t compare with Radiant Tower in any of those areas, so its defeat was already guaranteed.

As time went on, the righteous path’s forces won consecutive battles. Although they also had Prodigious Realm casualties, that didn’t affect the overall situation.

Another month passed by, and most of the demonic sects had already been destroyed. Countless dead or injured members filled the demonic sects of all sizes, and even the six major demonic factions had been broken up with its members scattered about.

According to propaganda from the righteous path alliance, the demonic cultivators were nothing more than stray dogs now, fleeing in all directions in a panic. Righteous path cultivators now needed to work hard to encircle and annihilate them all.


"Teacher, there's a letter for you from that place." Yan Xiaoxiao suddenly walked in with urgent steps.

Gu Nan sat alone, sipping tea while reading over the battle report from the frontlines.

"Oh?" Gu Nan raised his eyebrow slightly, a little curious.

Radiant Tower hadn’t sent him a letter in a long time. It seemed that him unceremoniously teaching Ye Zhiyu a lesson still had some effect.

Of course, this was also because the situation forced its own hand. Ever since the fight with Jing Nan, Gu Nan's reputation had become well-known on both sides, so it wasn’t so easy to launch sneak attacks on demonic path masters anymore.

Moreover, it wasn’t easy to catch Prodigious Realm experts who wholeheartedly wanted to flee.

Even if people from Radiant Tower could keep up with the fleeing experts, they often couldn’t afford to wait for Gu Nan to arrive.

So Gu Nan stopped harboring any unreasonable expectations and peacefully waited for the main mission to finish so that he could obtain the substantial rewards.

So why would Radiant Tower send him another letter at this juncture?

Gu Nan opened the letter and involuntarily bursted into laughter, piquing Yan Xiaoxiao’s curiosity as well.

Gu Nan noticed her expression and passed her the letter. “Take a look.”

Yan Xiaoxiao didn’t hesitate and read the entire letter in a glance. She immediately exclaimed, "The Demon Lord has been captured alive? They want to hold a righteous path ceremony?"

The letter informed Gu Nan that the Demon Lord had already been caught and that the righteous path would behead him as a sacrifice to their ancestors at the righteous path ceremony in three days.

The letter ended with an invitation for Gu Nan to attend.

“Teacher, will you go?"

"Of course… not." Gu Nan shook his head firmly.

"Ah…” Yan Xiaoxiao didn’t quite understand his thoughts. Now that the overall situation was set, the righteous path held all the power and influence.

‘With Teacher’s strength, he naturally doesn’t fear anyone, but participating in the righteous path ceremony is also a way to establish his status and position.

‘As long as Teacher attends, he’ll obtain a status befitting his strength and become famous overnight… As expected of Teacher. Not even this much fame and profit can move him…’

On the other hand, Gu Nan’s thoughts weren’t so complicated. He patted her shoulder and asked, "Have you found that pair of saint and saintess from Yin Pagoda Sect?"

"No." Yan Xiaoxiao calmly shook her head. "This whole war situation has been too chaotic right now, so we haven't found a single trace from them. Perhaps they’ve already died in the skirmishes…”

Just then Yan Xiaoxiao suddenly revealed a small smile and confessed, "Teacher, in fact, I no longer care about avenging my family."

"It's best if you can think this way." Gu Nan nodded. "This world is very big. Strive to advance to Prodigious Realm as soon as possible… And by the way, do you want to know why I won't attend the ceremony?"

Yan Xiaoxiao couldn’t quite keep up with the way his thoughts jumped around and floundered before hurriedly shaking her head.

"They’re inviting me over to kill people, but surely, I don’t give a damn about killing anyone if there aren’t any benefits involved."

"Kill people…? The entire war has already been set. Who else do they still want to kill?" Yan Xiaoxiao’s imagination immediately ran wild. She even thought of the possibility that the remnants of the demonic path still existed and might make a comeback in the future.

"Of course it’s to kill those righteous path cultivators!" Gu Nan answered, as though that was proper and to be expected. "Don’t tell me that you believe we came from another world just to help people? Do you?"


Three days later, at the righteous path ceremony.

Numerous righteous path heroes gathered. After a long ceremony to worship Heaven, the head of Heavenly Inquiry Sect personally beheaded Demon Lord Wang Yutong with his sword, putting an official end to the year-long war between the righteous and demonic paths.

The disciples from every sect held hands and celebrated. They cheered with great pleasure that the era of the righteous path was coming.

However, they had celebrated too soon. Countless unfamiliar assassins suddenly appeared and purged the high-ranking members of the five righteous sects.

The battle lasted only a few hours, but all the seniors from the five righteous sects had died. The righteous path withered from then on, now no better than the demonic path, whose remaining members had become street rats.

No one knew where those assassins came from, and the few cultivators who knew about the existence of people from another world also unknowingly disappeared until none existed.


Gu Nan sat in the meeting room inside Azure Dragon Hall’s headquarters, while a rare guest sat across from him.

"I thought you guys were busy hunting down the righteous path’s powerhouses, so you shouldn't have had the time to come find me," Gu Nan looked at the person in front of him with a light smile and said with a relaxed expression.

Thus was the first time that Tang Xuan visited Gu Nan's lair, but if possible, she wouldn't have come over.

"Satsuma Heaven’s reincarnators have all retreated. It’s just a matter of time before we hunt down all the natives." Tang Xuan's face was calm. "For us right now, your attitude is key."

"Me? I don't have such attitude!" Gu Nan’s face looked innocent. "It’s none of my business whether you guys want resources or talents. I just want to raise a disciple over here while occasionally taking a vacation."

Tang Xuan stared at him for a long time and said in a deep voice, "I hope you can remember what you said today. The matter regarding Mo Jiaqi…”

"I haven't seen Mo Jiaqi for a long time," Gu Nan interrupted and even spread out his hands in a shrug.

Tang Xuan gritted her teeth and felt a little resentful. Gu Nan, this person, was too cunning. Every step he took just happened to toe the line so that people either didn’t get angry or got angry but felt that the losses outweighed the gains.

Whether it was killing Mo Jiaqi or injuring Ye Zhiyu, those actions were all within the scope of the mission, and the organization didn’t suffer any substantial loss.

In these circumstances, the organization wouldn’t waste the effort to surround and kill him, a Prodigious Realm expert.

But how could she have known that digging out just the right amount of mission benefits was exactly what players excelled at to begin with?

Since Gu Nan denied it, Tang Xuan didn’t say anything else and immediately got up to leave. But when she was about to leave, she suddenly smiled.

"By the way, when we were killing the righteous path cultivators, there was a person who claimed to know you, so I brought them here in passing. Just think of it as a farewell gift."

"Hm?" Gu Nan was flabbergasted. After pondering for a long time, he really couldn’t think of anyone he knew from the righteous path.

And even if they knew him, why would Tang Xuan be so kind and send this person over to him?

But a moment later, Gu Nan couldn't help laughing in spite of himself.

A carriage slowly approached. The curtain lifted, actually revealing a woman's figure. There was a white light around this woman's body, and only a few people could approach her.

But she looked unusually pale. Clearly, it wasn’t easy to maintain this white light. She was already at the end of the ropes.

It turned out that Gu Nan really did know this person—Goddess Sect’s Lin Jun.
