I'm Really Not the Demon God's Lackey Chapter 6: Corpse Devouring Sect, Rites & Ceremonies

"Ahh! W-was this written by you?"

Wilde's expression changed. He had originally been holding the book carefully but now, his actions were even gentler, as if he was dealing with a piece of fragile glass.  

Lin Jie's words were clearly printed there and in retrospect, all that had been said was clearly him recommending his own work.

Wilde glanced at the printed title, Corpse Devouring Sect, Rites & Ceremonies. He raised his head and asked with caution. "Is this your area of research? Rites and ceremonies?"  

Rites and ceremonies are easy to understand while Corpse Devouring Sect... This sounds like a certain religion… but I've never heard of it before.

There were three main faiths in Azir:

With knowledge as their conviction, the Truth Union.

Worshipers of the Moon, the Church of the Dome.

Believers of the Wall of Fog, the Church of Pestilence.

There are also other scattered religions that were rather obscure, but as a magician who wandered around and did jobs as a hired hand for various factions, Wilde would still know a little about them, yet, the Corpse Devouring Sect didn't ring any bells.

This sounds like the religion of a demonic tribe that eats humans. But if it isn't, that would mean...

Wilde felt his heart shudder. 

Scholars and academics tended to be lawfully goodandall this time, Wilde reckoned that Lin Jie would at the very least be neutral. That had been the reason why he didn't dare divulge too much of his own identity nor talk about his past.

The charity of these sorts of higher beings was usually temporary so neither could he be certain that this bookstore owner wasn't just running an experiment out of boredom to "talk a ruthless black magician into being good."

There might be unimaginable consequences if Wilde were to go against the wishes of this higher being.

However, this book written by Lin Jie had a sinister vibe. Without a doubt, the author was aligned with evil.

A formidable scholar that researches taboo issues was bound to be eliminated by the mainstream. Is this the reason for him being a recluse?! With a pounding heart, Wilde looked towards Lin Jie, who didn't mind curious gazes from customers and with a gentle smile he nodded with reminiscence. "Yes, this is a part of my research tasks that also changed my fate..."

"Never mind, it's something that happened a long time ago. There isn't any reason to dig it up all over again." Lin Jie sighed.
