Chapter 26: The Deity’s Punishment
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Realizing Gu Mengmeng’s fear, Elvis suppressed his own anger.
“Lea is hosting the rite of the Deity’s Punishment. He will visit you tonight.”
Gu Mengmeng noticed that although Elvis looked angry, he did not have the intention to hurt her so she grew braver and stuck her small head out from the dark, “What is the Deity’s Punishment?”
Elvis pressed his lips together, frowning. He did not want to tell Gu Mengmeng anything related to the Deity’s Punishment because he was afraid that Gu Mengmeng would be interested in the person executing it or the person receiving it. He particularly did not like the feeling of Gu Mengmeng shifting her attention to other males besides him.
However, as he met Gu Mengmeng’s crystal-clear eyes that shone curiosity, Elvis could not bear to reject her and could only suppress his jealousy till he almost suffered from internal injury and satisfy Gu Mengmeng’s thirst for knowledge.
“It’s a grave crime to harm a female. Any tribe would not be easily excused. Hurting a young female was even more disrespectful to the Beast Deity, so the criminal has to stay exposed to the sun for three days in the altar. If he did not evolve back into beast form, this means that the Beast Deity has forgiven him and he just has to be banished from the tribe.”
Elvis said as he observed Gu Mengmeng’s facial expression. He realized that when he was clearing her doubts, Gu Mengmeng would stare at him intently with her clear eyes that resembled a fawn so he cleared his throat and continued,
“However, if the criminal was unable to maintain human form and evolve back into beast form, this means that the Beast Deity is in a thundering rage and the criminal’s skin must be skinned to make a flag. This flag would be raised on the peak of the Beast Deity Mountain by the tribe’s witch doctor to ease the Beast Deity’s anger.”
Gu Mengmeng obtained an important message from Elvis’s words: maintain human form and evolve back into beast form.
Saint Nazaire did not only have Elvis as a werewolf, everyone else was … a demon too?!
What the heck, I did not even complain much after you transmigrated me to this place where birds peed and pooped anywhere they wanted and this place did not even have any WIFI, why the heck was this place also filled with demons?!
Monkey King? Where’s my Monkey King? Praying for a monkey, one that can tumble over clouds, fly to the sky, enter the ground and defeat demons!
Elvis read Gu Mengmeng’s attitude of how life meant nothing to her in a different way. He thought that she must have guessed who was the one receiving the punishment. That explained the dreary and heavy expression on her face.
Ah, it’s so upsetting! I really want to execute the punishment myself!
“That…” Gu Mengmeng pressed her lips, calculating the benefits and cons of both escaping and staying in her mind. She decided to stay decisively.
Firstly, the world was so big, she would get lost easily.
Secondly, who asked her to be a frail beauty who lacked the physical strength. How was she able to outrun a bunch of demons?
Since she decided to stay, Gu Mengmeng decided that she should suck up to Elvis. After all, everyone here seemed like they were all very scared of him.
Thus, Gu Mengmeng shifted forward after mustering her courage and used two fingers to pinch a corner of Elvis’s beast-skin dress with caution, her eyes filled with innocence and naivety. She said with a clearly fawning tone, “Elvis, do you accept sidekicks? Those that can act cute.”
“Sidekicks?” Elvis raised his eyebrows in uncertainty, not sure what Gu Mengmeng meant.
“Yeah, sidekicks.” Gu Mengmeng nodded her head heavily and said, “Those that follow behind you, serve you tea, pour you water, give you a massage, eat, shop and even chat with you everyday.”
