Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 94: Past Events

Zhang Yueying's attack came too quickly and inexplicably. Yan Xiaoxiao didn't even know she was here. The exhausted Yan Xiaoxiao couldn't react at all.

Lin Jun and Qi Lengxuan had been standing nearby, but they also couldn’t stop the attack in time, so they could only watch the sword stab out.

Gu Nan stood behind Yan Xiaoxiao, expressionless. Nobody knew what he was thinking.

Clang!

The sound of metal hitting metal rang out, and the sword in Zhang Yueying's hand was sent flying. She stared at the person beside her in a daze, the only one she hadn't been on guard against.

Lu Zhanyu.

‘She couldn’t have possibly reacted in time, not unless…’ Zhang Yueying stared fixedly at the woman who always had a serene smile on her face. ‘Not unless she’d been on guard against me from the beginning!’

Her mind replayed all the recent events in an instant, but she couldn't remember where she had exposed her true intentions.

It could also be said that Gu Nan put so much pressure on her that she completely forgot about Lu Zhanyu’s existence.

"You… When did you notice?"

"When you deliberately expressed your approval of Azure Dragon Hall instead of wholeheartedly rebelling against it." Lu Zhanyu said with a smile, "That wasn’t what you said when you were being chased."

Zhang Yueying stared blankly and finally recalled her firm attitude against Azure Dragon Hall on the battlefield.

But after discovering that Gu Nan was connected to Azure Dragon Hall, she deliberately adjusted her stance, making it seem like her rebellion was simply because she couldn’t stand the actions of those currently in power, and she actually admired the old hall master.

Unexpectedly, the subtle contradiction between her stances actually led to defeat.

It’s just… ‘To suspect me just because of this tiny thing—isn’t this a little too far-fetched!?’

"Even a tiny amount of suspicion is enough." Lu Zhanyu leisurely put away her sword and glanced at Gu Nan, who was still expressionless.

She believed that Gu Nan also saw through Zhang Yueying’s ploy. After all, he had been the one to first teach her to be suspicious of everyone.

Yan Xiaoxiao also knew Zhang Yueying. She didn't know what happened after she was trapped. She frowned slightly. "Zhang Yueying, why do you want to kill me?"

Zhang Yueying knew that she had no chance anymore, so she simply stopped pretending. She sneered and was about to speak, but Gu Nan suddenly opened his mouth.

"Someone else can answer this question."

As soon as his voice fell, his figure suddenly disappeared and immediately reappeared. Unexpectedly, he was carrying a person in one hand—Zhang Yao.

The longer he stayed at Tier 3, the more proficient Gu Nan became in controlling the power of shadows. A junior like Zhang Yao who had just stepped into Prodigious Realm couldn’t fight back in front of him at all.

Qi Lengxuan’s face lost all color as soon as he saw Zhang Yao. "Unruly disciple! You…”

Gu Nan waved his hand and motioned for him to shut up. He pointed to Zhang Yueying and asked, "You placed her into Azure Dragon Hall. Have you been waiting for this day for a long time? Is she your younger sister? Or your daughter?"

Zhang Yao gritted her teeth so hard that she almost crushed them. A plan spanning twenty years had been so close to succeeding, but everything just had to fail because this person returned!

"Do you want to know?" Her face showed a sneer, refusing to back down. "Even if I die, I will take this secret to the grave with me. Don’t even think about finding out for the rest of your life!"

Gu Nan casually crushed her throat, looking puzzled. "Just don’t say it if you don’t want to. You make it sound like I have to know or something."

"Mother!" In the end, Zhang Yueying's sad cry still exposed their relationship.

"Are they really mother and daughter? Based on Zhan Yueying’s age, she should’ve been born when Zhang Yao was thirteen or fourteen." Gu Nan rubbed his chin and completely ignored Zhang Yueying's hate-filled glare.

The next second, shadows began to wrap around her, just like dark tentacles pouring into her eyes, ears, mouth, and nose, completely sealing her five senses.

"What are you doing?" Lu Zhanyu looked at him in confusion, and even Yan Xiaoxiao did the same.

"I need her to live for a while.” Gu Nan skillfully controlled Zhang Yueying and said with a smile, "It’ll be troublesome if she tries to commit suicide."

"But… Why do these actions of yours look so practiced?"

……

After Zhang Yao was dealt with, Gu Nan only had to wait for the mission to end—with his Prodigious Realm strength, doing this kind of mission was a waste. Fortunately, he didn't care about the mission reward and only cared about the size of the plane.

Gu Nan sat alone on the hill, quietly looking at the night sky in the far north. A gentle breeze blew, and a figure was standing behind him.

"Teacher."

"Is your power the law of wind?" Gu Nan looked back and studied Yan Xiaoxiao, then shook his head. "Not quite right, it seems like a more refined law."

To be able to sublimate one’s skill into the level of “laws”—this was a trait of geniuses, but it was also the special privilege of NPCs.

For example, if a player had Gu Nian’s law of “duality,” then at Tier 3, they’d only be able to get stupid skills like “fold space” and “accurate positioning” at best.

The current Yan Xiaoxiao was the same. She had already found her own path, so her power was no longer as simple as wind.

In contrast, it was much harder for players. Even a veteran player like Gu Nan still had to do things step by step.

Of course, Gu Nan's understanding of various laws and skills wasn’t something NPCs could compare with.

"As expected, I can't hide it from Teacher." Yan Xiaoxiao smiled, then changed the subject, "So Teacher, were you the one who ordered people to kill my entire family?"

The topic changed abruptly, but Gu Nan didn't hesitate and immediately answered, as if he was answering a simple question about whether he had dinner or not.

"Yeah. I asked Mo Jiaqi to do it." Gu Nan nodded. "At that time, I didn't expect that twenty years would pass in the blink of an eye. Did you find some documents left behind in Radiant Tower?"

Yan Xiaoxiao looked serious as she nodded slowly.

It was precisely because of the time skip that the reincarnators ended up leaving one by one. When Yan Xiaoxiao and the others began to take charge of Immortal Demon World, the truth about the past gradually surfaced.

It’s just that right now, this no longer mattered to Gu Nan.

Selling out an NPC really wasn’t a big deal for him. If Yan Xiaoxiao harbored killing intent, then he could just kill her. There was nothing more to it.

And since she brought it up herself, she obviously had other ideas.

Hearing Gu Nan personally admit it, Yan Xiaoxiao just lowered her head, her body tense. A long time later, she gently sighed, and her face also looked relieved.

"Want revenge?" Gu Nan had a playful smile on his face.

Yan Xiaoxiao shook her head a little. "I’m no match for Teacher, nor am I a good person. I lack both the ability and the motive to take revenge."

The smile on Gu Nan's face gradually disappeared. "Looks like twenty years of experience has made you smarter… So what exactly do you want?"

Hearing Gu Nan's words, Yan Xiaoxiao suddenly smiled. "I want to stay here, Teacher."
