Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 73: Gu Nian Arrives

Gu Nan spent nearly two months in Immortal Demon World, so half a month had also gone by in Star Realm. Thus, the one week deadline he gave Xu Feiyan had long since passed.

Xu Xun had been holding back his anger ever since that day’s treatment, just waiting for the day when he’d finally prove that Gu Nan was a liar.

However, when his sister, who held out and didn’t bathe for a week, took off her leg weights and practiced her set of punches, the result almost made his eyes pop out of their sockets.

There was clearly no difference in her movements and footwork, but the power of her punches had increased by 30%!

One should know that Xu Feiyan was a martial artist at the peak of Innate Realm Sixth Stage. Unless she broke through to Prodigious Realm, it would be extremely difficult for her to make any further progress in her martial arts.

To think that merely wearing a few leg weights could have this kind of effect…

They even made a special trip to see the elder who first pointed out Xu Feiyan’s weakness. Even the elder clicked his tongue in wonder after hearing about it. He told Xu Feiyan to make friends with this person or simply lead him to their house so he could take a look.

The elder even said that this person might be the key to his sister’s breakthrough to Prodigious Realm.

With that remark, the entire Xu family launched into action and investigated openly and secretly for several days, but Gu Nan seemed to have disappeared from the face of the earth and couldn’t be found anywhere.

As for Gu Nan’s origin, they only knew that he was related to the Gu family, but the Xu family couldn’t investigate further without offending the Gu family.

Xu Xun had already given up, but he didn’t expect to run into this extraordinary person again here!

“Master Gu, do you… do you still remember me?” Xu Xun asked cautiously. He didn’t forget that his original attitude towards Gu Nan was quite bad.

‘I hope this Master Gu won’t get a bad impression of the entire Xu family just because of me.’

Xu Feiyan’s position in the Xu family was the same as Gu Nian’s status in the Gu family before she advanced to Prodigious Realm. Moreover, there was practically no internal competition among the Xu family’s younger generation.

Ever since Gu Nian advanced to Prodigious Realm, the Gu family had already started to suppress the other two families in terms of momentum. Now, the Xu family finally found an opportunity after much difficulty. All personal conflicts had to give way to the family’s benefits.

“No.” Gu Nan shook his head, but in fact, his memory was very good. He recognized the other party at first sight but felt it was troublesome and was too lazy to say more.

“That… I’m Xu Feiyan’s older brother.” Xu Xun smiled flatteringly.

“Oh.”

“...”

“...”

While the two of them were having this odd conversation, the group of young masters who came with Xu Xun was dumbfounded, especially Shi Tianjing. He originally expected Old Xu to back him up, but they actually knew each other…

“Old Xu, this person…” A dude asked tentatively.

Xu Xun’s expression suddenly changed. He stood behind Gu Nan and said, “Anyone who wants to look for trouble with Master Gu is also looking for trouble with me, Xu Xun!”

Shi Tianjing’s face alternated between turning blue and white. He gritted his teeth in silence. In his heart, however, he hated Xu Xun and Gu Nan bitterly.

Gu Xingzhu also watched this scene in surprise.

She was aware that Gu Nan and Xu Feiyan knew each other, but they were merely acquaintances. Why should Xu Xun protect Gu Nan to such an extent? This was simply an unreasonable endorsement of Gu Nan!

Just then, a voice came over from afar.

“Then I’ll look for your trouble—so what?”

All of Shi Tianjing’s original expressions disappeared when he heard this voice. His entire person calmed down inexplicably, but his expression was a little complicated.

He didn’t really want to see that person, but he had to admit that only that person could control the situation right now.

Everyone turned and saw a man and a woman slowly walking over.

The man was tall, with sword eyebrows and starry eyes. His appearance was extraordinary. The woman was delicate and lovely, but there was a pitch-black shoe print on her abdomen, which looked very out of sorts with her attire…

“Long Quan.” Shi Tianjing looked at the newcomer with complicated eyes, but in the end, he still took the initiative to greet him.

“Mm.” Long Quan nodded slightly. Although he was very dissatisfied that Shi Tianjing allowed Miao’er to get hurt, he was still Miao’er’s older brother, after all, so he couldn’t be too cold to Shi Tianjing.

Shi Miao’er finally saw Gu Nan again. All the anger in her heart instantly burst out. “That’s him! Brother Long, he’s the one who kicked me without even distinguishing right from wrong!”

Long Quan’s gaze fell on Gu Nan. He said coldly, “I, Long Quan, never treat anyone unjustly. Miao’er indeed has an unruly personality, but sir, isn’t it too much for you to use violence against a weak woman?”

Gu Nan didn’t even spare him a glance. He casually picked up the teacup on the side and took a light sip, then asked Xu Xun, “Who is this?”

“The Long family’s Long Quan.” Xu Xun didn’t respond to Long Quan’s initial provocation. At this time, his face also looked a little serious.

“Master, you don’t know this. People like our family’s Feiyan and the Gu family’s Gu Nian are seeds who have the highest possibility of advancing to Prodigious Realm. And such seeds… The Long family has two of them.”

“Is he one of them?” Gu Nan looked at Long Quan with great interest.

“That’s right.” Xu Xun gave a slight nod, then said, “But Master, don’t worry. You’re my Xu family’s esteemed guest. If someone dares to disrespect you, they would be making enemies of my Xu family… in a feud to the death!”

Long Quan finally frowned once he heard this. He didn’t know who exactly Gu Nan was, to actually make Xu Xun proclaim something like “a feud to the death.”

Of course he didn’t know; this concerned Xu Feiyan’s advancement, so anyone who hindered this matter would naturally become the Xu family’s mortal enemies.

However, Gu Nan waved his hand. “I meant that as long as I cripple this person, no one will dare to make trouble again?”

“You…” Long Quan’s expression suddenly changed. He was about to speak, but a sense of crisis abruptly emerged in his heart.

He wanted to get away but felt his steps become as heavy as boulders. He could only watch as a white light flew at him and hit his knee.

Crack!

The crisp sound of bone fracturing came, and everyone felt slight chills in their hearts. They saw Long Quan suddenly kneeling on one knee and clenching his teeth tightly. Blood slowly seeped out of the knee that was on the ground.

Only then did everyone see what had hit Long Quan’s knee just now—it was a small and exquisite teacup cover!

“This…”

“At the very least, Long Quan is still an Innate Realm Sixth Stage expert. How could this…”

“To think that the ceramic teacup cover can break the bones of an Innate Realm expert. Just what kind of strength does this person have?”

The young masters watching weren’t ignorant dandies, so they understood the horror of Gu Nan’s attack.

‘Where the hell did this person come from? It was one thing for Shi Tianjing, but not even Long Quan could fight back at all. Could it be…’

A terrible possibility flashed through everyone’s hearts. Gu Xingzhu was now looking at Gu Nan with frightened and strange eyes.

Just then, it seemed as if a breeze had swept over. The people present hardly felt it; only Gu Nan raised his eyebrows slightly and gently put down the teacup in his hand.

“Since you’re here, come out,” He seemed to be talking to the air.

Then, a clear figure walked out slowly and studied Gu Nan with astonishment. “It’s only been half a month since I last saw you. I didn’t expect you to have advanced to Prodigious Realm already… brother dearest.”

This person was precisely Gu Nian.
