Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 44: Young Demon Lord Du Mian

In the end, Gu Nan didn’t enter the cave. Not because anyone could’ve stooped him, but mainly because Lin Jun convinced everyone else to stay behind.

“My Goddess Sect has a secret technique that can eliminate the killing intent inside Miss Yan’s heart. Gentlemen, please wait here.” Lin Jun commanded as her figure drifted away.

Gu Nan rubbed his nose but didn’t stop her.

According to Radiant Tower’s data, Goddess Sect was the most mysterious one out of the five righteous sects. Their inheritance might have come from ancient times, so many people in Radiant Tower became interested.

Goddess Sect’s many techniques directly affect the mind and spirit, so they’re kind of an extremely high grade.

Therefore, Gu Nan was also quite interested in Lin Jun’s secret technique. He didn’t mind learning more about it.

However, Mo Wusheng and Zhang Tianshu glared at Gu Nan with unkind eyes. From their perspective, their hesitation just now made miss an excellent opportunity!

‘If I’d known earlier that Lin Jun had a secret technique, I would’ve volunteered to enter the cave and show off my chivalry. But now, the spotlight went straight to this barbarian…….’

The cave that Yan Xiaoxiao was filled with silence. Lin Jun had gone in for about fifteen minutes, but no sound was heard at all, which worried the people outside.

Not only were they worried if an accident might have happened to Lin Jun, but they were also worried if the demonic path cultivators outside might attack at any time.

Right now, the Mo family alone was blocking countless demonic path cultivators, so the situation wasn’t getting any better.

A number of people had already come to report, hoping that Mo Wuya would retreat as soon as possible.

“Young Master, it’ll be too dangerous if we don’t retreat soon!” Next to him, an old man in plain clothes was desperately trying to persuade Mo Wuya.

“Uncle Fu, I also know that it’s very dangerous now, but…” Mo Wuya’s face turned bitter as he hesitated, “Luo River Valley is in a remote location, so Prodigious Realm experts shouldn’t be able to arrive so soon…….”

While he was hesitating, a sound of laughter bursted from afar.

“HAHAHAHA! This was effortless~ To think that while catching a Polis Witch, I even ran into the ‘Big Dipper Sword’ Zhang Tianshu!”

As the laughter approached, the crowd saw the person’s appearance.

The figure of a young man with black hair and purple eyes greeted them. He was dressed in pitch-black armor with a pair of metal gauntlets on his hands and a ferocious black helmet.

“Du Mian!” Zhang Tianshu couldn’t stop himself from blurting out a name as soon as he saw the newcomer.

Mo Wusheng’s expression changed slightly. “Is this ‘Young Demon Lord’ Du Mian?”

Du Mian, known as the “Young Demon Lord” in the demonic path, was the undisputed number one genius among the demonic path’s younger generation and was only one step away from the Prodigious Realm.

Thinking of this, Mo Wusheng couldn’t help feeling a little helpless as he glanced at his older brother. ‘True, a Prodigious Realm master didn’t come, but the demonic path’s number one young talent did…’

Du Mian’s gaze swept over the people present, but he didn’t see the figure of the Polis Witch. He also recognized the Mo brothers, while Gu Nan was directly ignored.

‘The Polis Witch has to die! But as the second disciple of Heavenly Inquiry Sect… Of course Zhang Tianshu also has to die!’

Du Mian’s gaze focused in before his figure appeared right in front of Zhang Tianshu with incredible speed, punching him in the face!

‘The Ninth Level of Demon Arts!’ That was all Zhang Tianshu managed to think before his entire body flew backwards.

The Mo brothers were flabbergasted as they watched this scene. They knew of Du Mian’s superior powers, yet they didn’t expect him to be this strong.

“He actually reached the Ninth Level in the Demon Arts…….” The brothers exchanged gazes and saw the bitterness in each other’s eyes.

The technique inherited by every Demon Lord throughout the ages didn’t have any other name—it was simply called “Demon Arts.” Besides the first generation Demon Lord, the genius who pushed his Demon Arts to the Tenth Level, the strongest among the past generations of Demon Lords was the peak of the Ninth Level.

Du Mian’s Demon Arts had already entered the Ninth Level, which wasn’t any worse than the current Demon Lord. All he lacked was the corresponding cultivation realm.

Gu Nan, however, looked at Du Mian in surprise. After transmigrating for so long, this was the first time he saw a cultivator who went the body-strengthening route, so he spared Du Mian a few more glances.

Different from a semi-finished product like Qin Xuanji, this Du Mian’s aura had already reached the peak of Innate Realm. ‘Although there’s still a gap between our speeds, his strength is already comparable to mine.’

If he didn’t activate the “Dragon Heart Pendant” and only used his physical strength, Gu Nan estimated that he would need over a hundred moves to be able to deal with Du Mian.

Du Mian watched Zhang Tianshu fly away and sneered, no longer sparing him another glance. His subordinates would naturally handle Zhang Tianshu.

He turned towards the two Mo brothers and said, “The world is currently in great chaos. I’ll give Elder Mo some face, I won’t have to take your lives…. Where is the Polis Witch?”

Mo Wuya’s face tensed. Of course he would never reveal Yan Xiaoxiao’s whereabouts, but Mo Wusheng’s gaze flickered a little.

Mo Wusheng actually didn’t know Yan Xiaoxiao very well. He just wanted to curry favor with Lin Jun. ‘Now that Du Mian is here, even Lin Jun herself will be in danger……’

“In that cave.”

A voice came from the side.

Originally, Mo Wusheng was still hesitating, but he was immediately stunned when he heard this voice. On the other hand, Mo Wuya had already turned his head to look at the owner of the voice, his eyes full of anger.

Du Mian also looked at Gu Nan in astonishment, then burst out into loud laughter. “Good! Little Brother, remember to visit my Limitless Demon Sect in the future. I’ll give you the rank of a Branch Master to play with!”

Gu Nan nodded seriously. “I’ll pay a visit if I have the chance.”

Du Mian didn’t take his words to heart. He turned and rushed into the cave.

Gu Nan revealed a small smile as he watched Du Mian’s figure disappear. He also started walking towards the cave. People with intentions against Yan Xiaoxiao had all gone in; of course, he also needed to enter and join the fun.

However, as soon as he took a step, he was stopped by Mo Wuya.

“What are you doing?” Gu Nan looked at him in confusion.

“How dare you ask what I’m doing?!” Mo Wuya practically forced out every single word through gritted teeth, “You despicable villain, how dare you sell out Xiaoxiao’s whereabouts?! I… Ow!”

Gu Nan punched Mo Wuya in the abdomen. The monstrous strength forced him to bend down, and it hurted so much that he couldn’t say a single word.

“Stupid… You didn’t even dare to speak up when someone wanted to kill your Xiaoxiao, but now you’re running here to demand an explanation from me?” Gu Nan squatted down with a smile and patted Mo Wuya’s face. “Is it because you think I’m easy to bully?”

After saying this, Gu Nan didn’t give him a chance to answer and quickly stepped into the cave.

Mo Wusheng and Uncle Fu, who were behind Mo Wuya, finally reacted and rushed to hold up Mo Wuya, who had fallen to the ground.

“Big Brother!”

“Young Master!”

“I-I’m fine.” Mo Wuya held his stomach and retched for a long time. Finally, he asked with a pale expression, “Second Brother, who exactly is this person?”

Mo Wusheng’s gaze looked a little strange. “I don’t know much either. We met him nearby. All we know is that his name is Gu Nan… Mm, and that he has a tremendous amount of strength.”

The corner of Mo Wuya’s lips twitched slightly and finally spat out a sentence, “A tremendous amount of strength indeed.”
