Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 43: Polis With

Clouds of dust flew upwards as four horses galloped past by.

Fairy Lin, whose name was Lin Jun, took the lead. The Polis Witch was right up ahead, and the several months of her exhausting pursuit was finally about to yield results. She couldn’t afford to be indifferent.

Zhang Tianshu and Mo Wusheng guarded her on either side. Their expressions were both a little strange, because another figure was following them at a reasonable pace.

‘This self-proclaimed Gu Nan fellow has a strange aura. He’s definitely not a good person…… Fairy Lin is too kind.’ These two came to a rare agreement.

“Brother Zhang, Brother Zhang.” That Gu Nan had gotten closer when he wasn’t aware and was now right next to Zhang Tianshu.

Zhang Tianshu felt an incoming headache, but in front of Lin Jun, he still had to show his magnanimity as the chief sect of the five righteous sects, so he forced himself to ask, “Brother Gu, what’s the matter?”

“I want to ask Brother Zhang about that Polis Witch’s specific situation.”

“Oh, I know a little about this……” Zhang Tianshu sighed in relief. They were going to catch the witch, so it was normal for the other party to want to learn about the situation.

“Hm, is her strength greater than mine?” Gu Nan widened his eyes innocently.

Zhang Tianshu’s mouth twitched slightly, and he choked back everything he was about to say. “……No!”

“Brother Mo, Brother Mo. Brother Zhang is ignoring me……”

“I don’t want to talk to you either.”

“Okay. Then, Fairy Lin……”

“Wait!”

……

……

“We’re here. Luo River Valley is right in front of us,” Lin Jun jumped off her horse and spoke to the three.

The four had reached a valley filled with a harsh, murderous aura faintly emanating from the front.

Lin Jun then looked at Gu Nan. “Gentleman Gu, you must know by now how dangerous the Polis Witch is. If……”

“I know.” Gu Nan waved a hand impatiently. “Did she not just slaughter 24 cities and take over 10,000 lives in the six months since her debut?”

“Brother Gu sure is magnanimous. He can even downplay the description for such a demon,” Mo Wusheng sneered from the side.

Gu Nan shrugged disdainfully. After several rounds of fishing for information, he could more or less guess her identity, even if nobody knew the Polis Witch’s real name.

‘Who would’ve thought that the next time I receive news about Yan Xiaoxiao, it would be in this way……’

Lin Jun came out again to stop their “quarrel,” and the four began to enter the valley.

……

……

Deep in the valley, the blood on the ground had already formed a river. Clearly, a huge battle occurred here.

A group of people gathered around a bottomless cave, and drops of blood extended all the way to the cave entrance.

“Xiaoxiao, come out. I know you’re in there,” A young man in a brocade robe stood in front of the cave entrance and shouted inside.

“Xiaoxiao, I’m Mo Wuya! Did you forget? I visited Jiujiang City as a child, and we even ran to Martial Temple together, but those smelly Daoists caught us in the end and returned us……”

The youth who claimed to be Mo Wuya tried to persuade Yan Xiaoxiao from outside the cave, but no reply came from the cave.

Just then, Lin Jun, Gu Nan, and the others arrived as well.

“Elder Brother, is that Polis Witch in there?” Mo Wusheng saw the young man’s figure and immediately stepped forward to ask.

Mo Wuya was just feeling dejected from the lack of response. When he heard Mo Wusheng, he reverted back to his energetic self. He pulled Mo Wusheng’s hand with an excited look. “Second Brother, you’re just in time!”

“Do you know who that witch is?” Mo Wuya’s face was filled with joy. “It’s Xiaoxiao! Yan Xiaoxiao! We went to Jiujiang when we were young…”

After listening to his older brother, Mo Wusheng finally remembered his experience back in those days.

“So it was her… No wonder the Polis Witch regards the demonic path as her mortal enemy. It’s said that Jiujiang City’s Yan family was slaughtered by the six demonic factions back then.” Mo Wusheng came to a sudden realization.

He immediately recounted the Yan family’s fate to the people around him. Lin Jun and Zhang Tianshu listened carefully. Gu Nan also listened carefully at first but stopped paying attention later on.

This was because he realized that Mo Jiaqi actually handled matters very impressively. She didn’t leave behind any clues or trails when killing the Yan family.

‘However, I need to find a chance to send Mo Jiaqi out……’ Gu Nan remembered that the only other person who knew the truth was still active inside Immortal Demon World.

Now that he left Radiant Tower, he had no more scruples about attacking its members.

After hearing Yan Xiaoxiao’s story, Lin Jun sighed endlessly. “So there was actually such a story behind it. She experienced great changes in her family—no wonder Miss Yan embarked on this path.”

“This one is……” Mo Wuya clearly didn’t know Lin Jun.

Mo Wusheng looked slightly pleased with himself. “This is Goddess Sect’s Fairy Lin, Lin Jun. Big Brother should’ve heard of her before.”

Mo Wuya was indeed surprised. “So I’ve been in the presence of the Teal Mist Goddess all this time. Please pardon my disrespect.”

“Elder Brother Mo, there’s no need to be so polite……” Lin Jun replied.

‘The way Lin Jun addresses my older brother naturally follows the way I address him.’ This pleased Mo Wusheng even more. He glanced at Zhang Tianshu’s face and saw that, sure enough, Zhang Tianshu’s expression appeared dark and gloomy. Mo Wusheng became increasingly proud.

He even glanced at Gu Nan in passing, wanting to see this barbarian’s reaction.

No expression at all.

‘Hmph, he really is a countryside barbarian. He hasn’t even heard of Fairy Lin……’ Mo Wusheng sneered in his heart.

Actually, he misunderstood Gu Nan here. At the very least, Gu Nan still spent a long time in Immortal Demon World, so he was somewhat knowledgeable about the important figures on both the righteous and demonic sides.

Goddess Sect was one of the five righteous sects. It was led by the three Goddesses, and Teal Mist Goddess was one of them.

Gu Nan knew about the situation inside Goddess Sect, but he just didn’t expect that Lin Jun would be one of its Goddesses.

Speaking of which, Goddess Sect actually sent one of its three Goddesses directly to pursue Yan Xiaoxiao…… At a time when tensions between the righteous and demonic paths were incomparably high, this was a big move.

“What exactly do they want?”

“Forget it. No matter what Goddess Sect’s goal is, it still won’t affect my actions.” Even if they sent a Prodigious Realm cultivator, he still didn’t fear them.

After all, the “Power of Shadows” was a genuine innate ability. It’s just that Gu Nan was still Tier 2, so the amount of power he could use was limited.

Admittedly, it was beyond him to win against a reincarnator like Wen Changfeng, but he still had a chance when fighting against a native Prodigious Realm cultivator.

Mo Wuya was still sighing about Lin Jun’s amazing appearance, but on the other hand, Zhang Tianshu couldn’t help giving a light cough. “Everyone, we’d better find a way to draw that witch… draw Miss Yan out as soon as possible.”

“That’s right. We’re still surrounded by the demonic path. It’ll be bad if we attract any Prodigious Realm masters,” Mo Wuya also agreed.

“Is Miss Yan inside this cave?” Lin Jun glanced at the cave entrance.

Mo Wuya nodded with a bitter smile. “Xiaoxiao was hunted down by demonic path experts and had no choice but to escape into the cave for the time being…… The path inside this cave is narrow and only allows space for one person to walk at a time. With her abilities, she’s indeed like a fish in the water here.”

After a pause, he continued, “But in Xiaoxiao’s state right now… She seems to have already suffered a Qi deviation. She doesn’t recognize any friends or relatives. Even I was thrown out by a slash of her sword when I tried to enter.”

As he spoke, Mo Wuya even leaned to the side. Sure enough, there was a long cut on his right arm.

Mo Wusheng’s expression suddenly sank a little. He knew his big brother’s strength very well.

As the eldest son of the Mo family, Mo Wuya had been trained as the family’s heir since young. His cultivation was not inferior to that of the top geniuses from the righteous and demonic paths. But Yan Xiaoxiao was actually able to hurt him.

‘That’s right. It’s said that the Polis Witch is already at the peak of Innate Realm……’

A voice nobody expected suddenly cut in, “I’ll go in and take a look.”

Several people simultaneously turned their heads in amazement towards Gu Nan, who just spoke up for the first time.
