Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 71: Shi Family's Siblings

A longsword pierced through a man’s abdomen in the dark night.

“W-why did you of all people betray me?” Bai Luoluo’s voice trembled a little, just like how her hand was trembling as she held the sword.

“What right do you have to fight for the position of chief of the six departments?” The man countered with a sneer as he covered his abdominal wound with his hands, his eyes full of resentment. “Is it just because you’re a close friend of the Hall Master? You overestimate yourself!”

An explosion went off inside Bai Luoluo’s head. She couldn’t hear anything anymore.

Ever since she left Azure Dragon Hall’s headquarters and arrived here to be an ordinary assassin, she had never relied on any external help to reach her current position. She started from the bottom and slowly worked her way up, one step at a time.

She even believed that no one would know about her relationship with Sister Xiaoxiao, but unexpectedly, this person in front of her, whom she thought of as her best friend, had hit the nail on the head.

As though he saw through Bai Luoluo’s thoughts, the same man sneered again. “Do you really believe that we first met by chance?”

“We didn’t?”

“Don’t be silly now. Which senior leader doesn’t know about your relationship with the Hall Master?! Vice Chief Huo ordered me to get close to you and keep you under tight surveillance!” The man’s voice shot out like a sharp arrow, passing right through Bai Luoluo.

Bai Luoluo lowered her head. Her eyes watered, but she forced the tears back.

It had been a long time since she had been this despondent.

Ever since she died in her previous life and transmigrated into this world for some inexplicable reason, she had told herself to be strong. She studied martial arts diligently and was even willing to become a cold-blooded killer so that she had the power to protect herself.

‘But is there no warmth at all in the world of assassins?’

She looked up at the man in front of her. He was her only friend and companion throughout her assassin career. He was even the person whom she had entrusted a part of her feelings to, but now, only coldness remained in his eyes.

Gradually, Bai Luoluo’s gaze became firm.

Another sword flashed past, and a bloody line suddenly appeared on the man’s neck.

“In this world, if you don’t kill others, they will kill you.” Bai Luoluo gazed up at the vast night sky and muttered, “Eldest Martial Sister, perhaps you’re right after all…”

……

……

「Evil Event: Bai Luoluo’s Blackening Complete. Total Evil Value obtained: 4」

While Gu Nan was sitting around, Evil Value fell from the sky.

‘Four? Not bad.’ Gu Nan nodded with satisfaction. Although this was a long-term, high difficulty event, he didn’t have to personally participate too much in it, so this reward was quite adequate.

「Accumulated points: 1000

Accumulated Evil Value: 30」

What Gu Nan didn’t expect was for Immortal Demon World’s main mission rewards to also arrive right then, and the amount was very surprising!

30 Evil Value and 1000 points!

Although Gu Nan knew that Immortal Demon World’s enormous main mission would definitely give generous rewards, he still felt a little happy to receive so many.

He currently held 1500 points, and his Evil Value had also reached a shocking value of 97, which was only 3 short of unlocking the first skill slot.

‘Sure enough, these large-scale dungeons are the best source of Evil Value.’

As Gu Nan recalled how he had been working himself to death for so long before this, this one mission had given him half of everything he had earned up to this point. His heart suddenly felt wronged… Fortunately, it was all his.

For the first time, he even thought that there were certain benefits in joining some large reincarnator organizations, such as getting into these large-scale missions.

……

……

On a sunny morning, Gu Nan was already standing on the streets of Star Realm’s Ruby Fish Star.

Gazing at the scene of countless cars in front of him, Gu Nan felt as though he had returned to his previous life and couldn’t help sighing with emotion. ‘Sure enough, a scientifically advanced civilization is more suitable for retirement.’

Although a high status that one could enjoy in Immortal Demon World was charming, in the end, that world still had all kinds of inconveniences.

While thinking, Gu Nan walked to the Gu family’s main gate.

Bai Luoluo’s body was still kept at the Gu family. Since the Evil Event's completion, he could notify the Gu family to wake her up now.

“Please halt.” A guard walked up to Gu Nan with a cold expression. “Sir, this is the Gu family. May I ask who you’re looking for?”

“Gu Xingzhu.”

That guard looked at Gu Nan suspiciously, but finally nodded and said, “Please wait a moment, sir.”

Several people nearby also looked towards Gu Nan with odd expressions.

Gu Nan was dressed very normally, and there were also no internal energy fluctuations around him. No matter how they looked, he didn’t seem like the type of person who could be acquainted with Gu Xingzhu.

The guard turned around to inform someone inside the residence, while a girl who entered at the same time as Gu Nan looked curious. “Hey, what’s your name? How do you know Gu Xingzhu?”

Gu Nan slowly turned his head and saw a girl in a white dress, which showed off her unique and youthful qualities. A young man in a well-ironed suit also stood beside her.

Upon hearing Gu Xingzhu’s name, the young man’s gaze noticeably shifted to Gu Nan’s side.

“I don’t know her. I’m just looking for her to lead the way.” Gu Nan shook his head inside his mind. He was too lazy to attract any trouble, so he casually made something up.

The young man’s gaze shifted away after hearing this answer, and he stopped paying attention to Gu Nan.

“Oh…” The girl also noticed this and was a little disappointed, but then an idea occurred to her. She said with a playful smile, “I heard that there’s a person who always finds strange excuses to approach Gu Xingzhu recently. It can’t be you, right?”

Gu Nan glanced at her and was too lazy to speak again, so he simply shut up.

But when faced with a curious and stubborn person, the result would be the same no matter how Gu Nan responded.

“If you don’t answer, then I’ll take that as a tacit agreement!” The girl smiled and patted her brother on the shoulder. “Brother, this person is trying to snatch sister-in-law Xingzhu from you! Don’t you have any reaction to that?”

The young man shook his head helplessly. Of course he knew that his younger sister’s princess temperament had flared up again. She probably wouldn’t leave until she had teased this newcomer to her heart’s content.

The girl didn’t wait for her older brother to reply. She ran directly to Gu Nan while raising her head.

“Hey, I’m asking you a question! Do you know who we are?” She pointed towards the young man. “See him? He’s the young master of East City’s Shi family, Shi Tianjing. Are you scared now?”

Once she revealed that, even the guards near them couldn’t hold back their smiles.

They felt that this girl was obviously teasing Gu Nan, but Gu Nan also had no choice but to endure it— ‘This person looks like a country bumpkin who entered a city for the first time. Being teased by the Shi family’s young miss is his honor.’

Gu Nan continued to ignore the girl’s words. He didn’t even spare her a glance.

The guard who went to report returned in a hurry. His attitude also seemed more respectful now. “Miss Xingzhu invites you inside.”

“Mm.” Gu Nan nodded.

“Hmph! You still want to enter, even after ignoring me? I’m telling you, Xingzhu and I have played together since childhood. I don’t care why you’re looking for her. I—"

Bang!

Everyone heard a strange sound. Gu Nan had raised his foot and kicked Miss Shi directly in the abdomen. The force sent her flying, where she eventually fell to the ground.

“Too noisy.”
